The following queries were presented
to Mr. Dole, as representing the Hawai
ian Government, yesterday morning.
Does the Hawaiian Government con
sider the question of whether the Septem
ber elections In Hawaii shall or shall not
he held of sufficient Importance to war
rant a request to Washington authorities
for an opinion ?
Has the Hawaiian Government received
Instructions from Washington, which It
deems sufficient to cover this point ?
If so, Is the Hawaiian Government
willing to give the text of these Instruc
tions to the public?
Mr. Dole, after reading these questions,
stated that he declined to be Interviewed
because the BULLIiTIN had not treated
him ' fairly" In Interviews had with him
If Mr. Dole will cite one Instance where
the BULLETIN has credited him with
words that lie did not utter, If Mr. Dole
will note one question put to him by the
HULLLTIN, the answer to which was
not quoted correctly, or lack of care taken
to publish Mr. Dole's answer txactty as
he gave It, the BULLETIN will apologize
and publish Mr. Dole's statement of the
case in full.
On each and every occasion that the
BULLETIN has sought Information from
Mr. Dole, the questions have been put in
writing. His answers have been put In
writing and submitted to him for correc

deny It and the BULLETIN will publish

Hhr tbo Hawaiian Govcrnmont
stopped to consider any pbao of
tbe flilualion that will be pro
bmU'hI in event of tbo Hawaiian
Legislature being culled iu eos
eion tho secoud Wudno3clay of
Tbo September election is held
on tho supposition that Congress
will not act upon Hawaii's teiri
torial law early io the session and
possibly wilL adjourn without
action on Hawaiian matters.
Congress will meet the first Mon
day of Heodmbor, 1899. Tho only
reason that cm ho given for fail
ure of Coagr-'sa to pas3 tho Ha
waiinn territorial bill promptly is
tho delay that may bo
forced by the opponouts of tbo
ndminisfra'ion. Tho territorial
bill as it now stands ia an oxpros
eionof thoadministration's policy.
Grantod that Congress will still
havo Hawaiian affairs undor dis
cission when tho Hawaiiau Leg
itlatnte meets, what guarantee can
the Hawaiiau Government give
that a movamont will not bo made
iu llm Hawaiian Legislature to
nssint tbo opposition to tho
administration in Washington?
ccepting tho interpretation
Hint our municipal laws go on
without ltt or bindrauce, tho Ha
waiian Locieluturo has a right to
do as it plcasos. It can logielato
on tliu basis tbat Hawaii ie still
foreiun to tho Unitod States and
thereby increase tho chances of
tho territory remaining under its
presont form of govcrnmont, and
pass on undor its proseut unsatis
factory conditions until still an
other session of Congress. Mr.
Dole iu his address to the plant
ers laid great stress upon the
powor of tbo opposition in tho
United States Congress. Holding
this view, how can tbo Hawaiian
Govornmcnt bo assured that tbe
Legislaturo 61ected in Soptembor
will not provo a potent factor in
increasing tho complications which
are already sufficient to warrant
its anticipation of a prolonged
discussion of Hawaiian affairs?
Tbo Govornment may reply
that tho Hawaiian Legislaturo will
bo in sympathy with tbo adminis
tration policy. On what grounds
havo they this assurance? When
Hawaii was annoxod diverse and
sundry interests requoated a delay
of tho oxtonsion of American laws.
Is thero any guarantee that others,
prompted by ulterior motivos will
not tako tho samo position when
Hawaii is again before Congress.
Is tbo Hawaiian Executive posi
tivo tbat it has the acts of its own
Legislature woll in hand?
Tho Hawaiian Govornmont has
expressed a fnar of the powor of
tho opposition, a fear tbat tho
Bulletin considers without foun
dation, but accepting the opinion
of the Government, where do tho
members of tho Govornmont find
themselves in the approaching
oleotiou and tho legislative session
Is its a polioy of oach ono for
himself aud the dovil tako tho
Again consider the situation
with tbo possibility of an Hawai
ian Legislaturo, fully in sympathy
with tbe Washington administra
tion, in session whilo Congress is
discussing Hawaiian laws. Horo
wo havo tho legislators gathered
iu Honolulu waiting on the action
of the American Congress. If the
power of tho administration is not
sufficient to carry the Hawaiian
law through Congress oarly in tho
soseion, thero will bo a backing and
filling, poRsiblo compromises and
deals. What will be tbo proper
move for tho Hawaiian Legisla
ture aftor ono steamor arrives with
nows from Washington, may be
found to havo been disastrous
whon tho "next" steamor arrives.
With ovory bill introduced in tbo
Hawaiian Legislature will come
tbo question of the advisability of
action pondinc tho condition of
Hawaiian interests at the national
capital. Every departmont of tho
govornmont will bo affeotod by
tho American law and tho time of
tho Hawaiian legislators will bo
passed, not in effective work, but
in a general guessing match ao
corapauied by ilights of oratory
that express opinions but accom
plish no benefit for the taxpayer.
Opiuions espresso 1 in tho Ha
waiian Legislaturo at a timo whon
the exact situation in Washington
ia not known nro likely to do
more harm than good.
Tho taxpayers of Hawaii aro
called upon to pay for the election
of und tho oxponses and salaries of
legislator who can accomplish
uothing for tbo progress of tho ter
ritory of Hawaii. And tbia is not
of sufficient impirtanco, in tho
estimation of Hawaii's officials,
for thojo officials to learn from
Washington whethor it is an ab
solute necessity that tho Septem
ber election shall be held. This
question that appeals to the peo
ple, to oaoh individual taxpayor,
tho day laborer as well as tho
bondholdor is placed by oar Ha
waiiau officials under tho schedule
