Not tbo least importau sign of
an approaching Presidential elec
tion is the increasing number of
strikes that calls for recognition
from the Eodornl government.
The frequency with which Bobb
Oroker and bis henchmen refuse
to answer questions put by tbo
Mazot investigating coramittoe on
tbo ground of j. "Tbat's a personal
matter," indicates that many im
portant affairs connected with tbo
administration of greater Now
York are "personal matters."
That politics and public adminis
tration sbould be conducted in tbu
interests of tbo people is aeecocd
ary matter with the bossos.
A QUKSTIONAIILK ItF.COHU.
The Hawaiian Qovornment is
now on record with resprct to tbe
September elections. It maiutains
that this is not a matter of suflici
eat import to request instructions
from tbe Washington authorise;
that the. municipal law as express
ed in tbe Constitution of tbo He
public of Hawaii must bo follow
ol; that further consultation with
WaBhiugtonautboritics is usoless
Bad the Newlands Resolution ifr
e'ear on tbo point.
If the Hawaiian Government is
ia duty bound to carry out tbo law
f jund iu the. Constitution of thf
Republic ofHawaii without furtber
questioning of tbo Frcsidout, if it
is under tbo obligations of an oath
o? office under tbo American law
t) make no changes in require
ments of the constitution, what
right has it to demand that the
voters of tbo Hawaiian Republic,
who have inot taken tbo oath pre
vious to annexation, shall bo re
quired to take a now oath
t'jo text or title of which
is not found in tbo constitution of
the Republic uf Hawaii, the Now
lands Resolutions or any of the
instructions received by tlio local
government from Washington ?
Tbe Hawaiian Government as
sumed tbo authority to change the
oath required of eleotorB by virtue
of an articlo iu tbo Hawaiian Cou
B'ifutiou readiugo folltwi:
"Until otherwUo providd by
law the president, with tbu up
proval of tho Cabinet, shall havo
power to make ruleB and regula
tions not iticomistent herewith,
for administering tbo oaths and
holding ttloctions provided for by
Acting under its assumed powor
to "make rules and regulations"
"for administciing tbe oaths and
holding tbo elections," tbe Ha
waiian Government has changed
tbo wording and interpretation of
t'le constitution of Hawaii. Tbe
occasion for this is tbe annoxa
tiou of Hawaii to the United
States and tbo assumed uecesbity
for mooting tbo ohangod condi
AVhon it comoj to a discussion
of tho advisability of Inkling tbe
Soptombor oJeclions and spending
tho poop'o'n money ueedlo-sly, the
Hawaiian Govornmont assumes
that the folio sing passage in tho
Newlands Resolution which is
nil tbo American law tbo territory
bap, bns no beoriDg oa tho subject:
Until Congress shall provido
for tho government of such islands,
mi tuo civil, uuiciai anu mili
tary powers exorcised by tho
officers of tbo existing gov
ernment in said islands shall bo
vested in such person or ptrsons
and shall bo oxorciscd in such a
manner as tho President of tbo
United States shall diroct."
The Hawaiian Govornmont
then turns to this part of tho New
"Tho municipal legislation of
the Hawaiian Islands not onaotcd
for tho fulfillment of tbo treaties
so extinguished, and not incon
sistent with this joint resolution,
nor contrary to tbo Constitution
of tbo United Stitos, nor to any
treaty of tbo United StatcB, shall
remain in forco until tbo Cou
greBB of tbo United States shall
By virtuo of this section of tho
resolution, the Hawaiian Govorn
mont maintains that it cannot
consider any proposition looking
to the suspension of the
election law, that tbo gov
ornmont and tbo pooplo aro
forced to hold tho olection whe
trior they want it or not.
Hera wo havo a local govern
ment that maintains its right to
obango tbo constitution of tho Re
public ouo day, and tho next day
claims that it can do nothing to
eavo tho peoplo'a monoy because
tho NowlandB Resolution com
mands that municipal laws shall
remain without obango till Con
gress shall otherwise dotormino.
If Arlich 79 of the Constitution
of tho Ropublio couplod with tbe
Resolution, empowers tbo Ha
waiian Exccutivo to manipulate
tbo oath, which is as much a part
of tho municipal law as the arti
cles defining tho duties of legis
lators or officers of tbo Ropublio,
thou Articlo 79 of tho constitution
coupled with tho Newlauds Reso
lution certainly empowers the
Hawaiian Executive to make any
number of changes in tho "rules
and regulations" affecting "hold
Tbo attitudo of tho govornmont
in refusinc to contemplato tbo
suspension of tbo olection laws is
not consistent, and its refusal
to seek information from Wash
ington domonstratos tho govern
ment's indifference to tho interests
of tbo peoplo of Hawaii.
With this record tbo Hawaiian
Govornmout approaches tho Sep
tember elections. On this record
will tbo Hawaiian Government bo
judged as to its desiro to consider
the best interests of tho pooplo of
Hawaii in their effort to obtain
from Congress an Amorioan terri
