sion upon tho proposition that cor

Wo do not quesliou tho legal
auimen of the learned judges who
h'ivo discerned "tho present tran

legil acumou "to split a hair twixt
north and northwest side, and to
make tho worse appear tho better
ipason," and it requires tho wis
dom aud discernment of a Colum
bus to cuter upon a "transition
period" of new discovery. But
to the lay mind, it Bceras remarka
ble that thero should be ench a
thing as a "trnusitiou period" in

The unsophisticated nnturalh
enquire: Wliero nro we, any
how, during "the present tronsi
tiou period ?" Are we out on the o
enn nailiug toward annexation to
tho United Slates, and toward sub
jection to its eovoroign dorniniun?
If so, when will wo get thprc?
Havo wn yet sighted any part of
tho Constitution of the Unitfd
Slates? Have all tho oaths of alle
giance to it taken by tho learned
judges, been takou with a mental
resorvation as to its prospective
operation, when tho "present tran
sition period" shall havo finally
pissed away and the Constitution
of the United States in tho distant
future Bhall begin to bo supported
by them? Whon, oh whou, ehall
this "transition period" havo its
oud, aud when shall uu begin to
onti-r under tho benoOcent protec
tion of tho Constitution of the
Uuitod States, aud finally arrive
oven as far as tho ond of tho fif
toonth amendment ?
When will the honorable judges
begin to support tho first amend
ment, and tho second, and the
third, aud tho fourth, and the
fifth, aud how much longer will it
be before they begin to support
tho fifteenth, and the "present
transition period" havo its final
termination in their minds? When
shall any part of tho "municipal
loislation of tho Hawaiian Isl
laudd" becomo "contrary to tho
Constitution of tho United States,"
anl bo so declared by tho loaroed
ju Iges ? When shall any part
of it become "inconsistent with
tho joint resolution" of Congress
declaring that "tho Hawaiian Isl
ands are. hereby annexed as a part
of tho territory of tho Utiited
States, and are subject to the sov
ereign domiuion tboreof ?" When
shall the provision of tin joint
resolution begin to operate which
doolaros that "tho municipal leg
islation of tho Htwaiian Islands
not onautod for tho fulullmont of
the treaties so extinguished, and
iiqI incomi$lcnt with this jiint reso
I'Uion, nor cnitrury to the Constitu
tion of the Un'.ttd Status, nor to auy
existing treaty of the Uuitod Stat os,
hU ill remain in foroi until' tho

Is it po.sihle that CougrcsB in
tended all theso provisions of the
joint resolution to operato inuturo
at tho ond of "the present 1 1 audi
tion period," when tho Island
shall be annexed and shall become
subject to tho domiuiou of tho
United States, and when it skull be
possible for any legislation of tho
IdaudB to be "contrary to tho
Constitution of tho United States?"
Thero questions nro of course
easy of solution by tho learned
judges who havo discerned "tho
present transition period." Thpy
havo doubtless considered them
nil, aud deoidt-d them all; but tl o
unlaarued layman will still bo

that we have so large an assort
