Query Why should the September
elections in Hawaii be allowed to t ike
Query Will the Hawaiian Govern
mint give any gooJ reason why, In view
of the probable enactment In December of
a territorial lasv demanding a new Leg!
lature, the people of Hawaii shuuld he
called upon to elect a Legislature In Sept
ember which will nexer be called in w
Query Has the government of Hawaii
sought any opinion from Washington on
this point, and if so w hat wa the reply
Query If the Hawaiian Government
has not sought this Inform Uion, what
r.uson has It to give for failure to do so?
These are questions fo- whiJi the peo
ple of Hawaii haven right to demand nn
answer. The taxpayers have a right to
demand that their money shall not be
spent for an election that amounts to
nothing. They have a right to know
whether the Hawaiian Government has
made any effort to prevent, by communi
cation with authorities In Washington, a
needless expenditure of Hawaii's public
money In needless elections.

President Dole was asked if the
Gjvernment had received any in
structions from Washington as to
holding a general election this year.
He replied in the negative, as lie did
also to the question if the Govern-
m:nt had ASKED for any instruc
tijns. "IT WOULD HAVB BEEN
NO USE," the President added.
He assented to the suggested
statement that the Government had
simply proceeded, in undertaking
preparations for a gen 3ral election,
upon the Hawaiian laws.

No nol roas)u hnB yet been
given Aliytuo sugar planters ot
Hawaii, as a whole, should bo
madu the object of a lirnde by the
ollici'd organ. Tbo imraigratiou
inspector in his report asserted
tliut as a rule the recommendations
bo hud mado for improvements in
the quarters of laborers were
promptly carried out. Why this
sudden awnkoniug on tbo part of
tho organ aud an attiok upon the
planters and the Minister of the
Interior ? Whatever tho penal
co le may say of tlin duties of the
AliuistiT of the lutenor, it is a
woll known fact thut his hinds
are tiod unless tbo full cabiuct in

any failuro to propjrly caro for

From tho organ's atatomont of
tho cisi', ono might aupposo that
the pluutcts havo suddenly bo
como obstroporous nud tho Min

is not tho fact. Tho only tbiug
accomplished is a display of the
petty pnmity toward Minister

on him the responsibility for the
incompetence of the official oirolo.

The failure ot CoDgresa Io pro

nent form of government. for Ha
waii will be no setback to any
publio interest. On tbo contrary,
further delay in legislating for
tbo islands may provo to bo tho
best tiling that cau bappou.
Ther'i ure two courses possible
with regard to tho future of Ha
waii, and tbo question which is the
bolter courao iu tho long run con
tunica to concern tho administra
tion and Cougrpas.
One policy is to proservo na fur
ns practicable tbo local system
pn viotibly existing, nud conse
quently tbu control of nfftiira by
the mon who promotrd the revo
lution against monarchy; those
who wnro iu power whuu annex
This policy may be described
roughly a tal ing the small boat in
tow behind the great ship.
The other courso is to Amer
icanize Hawaii thoroughly, to in
fuse into tho administration of its
affairs now American bloo"d, to
govern it as an integral part of a
nation of which Washington and
not Honolulu is the capital city; iu
bhort, to take Hawuii aboard tbo
ship instead of merely towiug it
Tbo opinion of the boat friends
of Hawaii and of miny of the
earliest advocitos aud promoters
of annexation is changing boiiio
what with rortppot to tho advis
ability of tho first policy. This
chance of opinion, it is proper to
say, has beon brought tibout not
ineroly by tho ciroumstauco that
Hawaii io now only ono item in
tbo Inrgor questions of national
expansion. It is duo to a corlniu
extent to soma not altogether
pleasant revelations ns to the spirit
in wliich the Hawaiian leaders of
tliepast accept the privileges and re
spomibilitic8 of American citizen
That is why tho final settlement
of Hawaii's status cau vory woll
be postponed a wbilo longor.

Opportunity Made Kllicl.
To obtjin wealth needs, simply, the a
blllty to recognize opportunities and take
advantage of them. Opportunities exist
everywhere, but the number of really great
opportunities is always proportionately
small and these are always taken up by
tho men who have not only brains but
who act quickly and have courage. Pretty
much all of the wealthy people of this
country were once poor and they have
prospered bv taklnc advantase of oDoortu-
nltles. In Honolulu today,Tire all the evi
dences of advanced American rustling and
enercv. To be much account in the do-
icnnIoii a man has to keep pretty close to
uienanu Wdgon, iNow-a-uays a Dicycie is
much like a revolver was, In the "wild
and wooly west," when wanted it was
wanted very badlv. You mav have
opportunity to ride to wealth. The Pacific
Cycle & Mfg. Co. In the Ehler's block
on Fort Street have very trusty and
inexpensive sieeus in uic crescent or He
mlncton blcvcles. Provide vourself now

at the lowest of prices to make necessary

transit. When Klhel sugar stock was
floated, brains and quickness seized the
opportunity their bicycles were handy,
were used, and they succeeded In getting
In on the ground floor. If you want, not
a cheap bicycle, but a high grade bicycle
