Tho Suprome Court futthor
urges thit "llioro would bo nunr
oby iu pluco of or.lur," if tho Oon
alitut'.on woro operalivo in npwly
ncquircd trrritoty of its own vigor,
"with tho result," iu addition to
tho particulars nlrotuly diecusscd,
that "tho right of the peoplo, how
ovor hostile, t boar anui, could
not bo infringed," and that "vo3
boIs registered under tho lnwa of
tho acquired torritoiy would he

Tho Constitutional provision as
ti "thn right of the people to bear
araWis as follows: ".l well regulat
ed militia Icing neeemiry to a free
state, tho right of the people to
Loir arms filmll not bo infringed."
This provision iB tnauifestly ap
plicable to tho States, and to the
right of tbo pjoplo thereof to
maintain " well-regulated militia."
It is to be coustruod together with
tho provision for "calling forth the
militia to cxeeuto the laws of the
Union, supprcs innerection, and
Sinco tho Conttitution itself
provides for u State of war, and
for tho suppression of innnreo
tione, it is absurd to say that there
is any sueh thing as a right under
the Conttitution to hear hostile arm
against the authcrity of the Unit
od States, in any statp or territory!
The Mipprrssiou of aa insurrec
tion, and tho taking away of the
arms of those who are iu hostility
to the United States, whether in
any stato or territory, is not an in
fringomout of tho right of the
people to keep and boar arms
within the meaning of the Cousti
tatiou. Nono of its provisions aro
dosipued to protect the foes ol
tbo United States, or robots agninet
Tho Supreme Court soomi to
havo quickly forgotten the prin
oiplo announced by it, that "the
Constitution is to bo reasonably
construed." That Court seems to
havo lost sight altogother of the
prinoiplo that the true object of
roasonablo construction of tho
Constitution, is, not to get rid of
its oporation, but to enforco it, as
reasonably constrnod. Tbo Su
promo Court, on tbo contrary, ap
pear to have misconstrued tho
Constitution for the avowed pur
poso of getting rid of iU timber
ed oporation, undor the charge
that if it wore in force of its own
vigor "tboro would bo anarchy ia
tho placo of order."
The charge that tliera would ba
Buch "anarchy in the place of
ordor," if tho Constitution were
operative of it) own vigor iu
nowly annexod torritory, which
had previously rogistored vossels
"because audi vossels would be
without a Hag," is supromoly ab
Burd! If tho ownora of any vobecI
registered by tbo independent Re
public of Hawaii, wbilo it had a
distinct flag, havo lost that il
bIuco it has been takon down and
supplanted by tho American (lag
as tho emblem of the uuurxation
of the Hawaiian Islands to tho
Unilod States, and of their com
plete subjection to tho sovereign
dominion thcrouf j aud if they hurc
not common sense enough to hoist the
Amerieiin flag in place thereof, as
the only existing ling of the Ha

Tho Advortisor takos praotio
ally tho samo position on tbo
petition of local membors of tho
bar, asking President MoKinley
ijjjteljiUWMgfrtti i--y, '1 .i-r.i in, i r
to review tho "constitutional" deci
sions of tho Supreme Court, that it
assumed whoa tho raaltor of hold
ing the loctl elections was diseased
ThoAdvertis r poled fun nttho idea
that President MoKinley should
comider tho picnyuno Hawaiinu
elections of Bulliniont importtneo
to give tho mattor oven passing
attention. President McKinloy'n
notion aud proclamation provul
b'youd question how shortsight
ed was the Advertiser's view.
Tho only fair solution of the
Advortisor's nttitudo towards this
petition U that tho oflioial organ
objects to tho citiz ni of Hawaii
going beyond tti siy so of local
officials and appealing to head
quarters. Presidout McKinley, however, is
Hawaii's Presidout, ho is our
commander in chief; tho peoplo
of Hawaii have a right to present
petitions to him and bis previous
attittido toward the citizens of
Hawaii is not such as to lood the
people to bolicvo that ho will
viow their roqneaU with indiffor
ence. But suppneo tho President does
consider tho petition uccdless,
eupposo he does dictate wliinh
bo docs not the opinions of tho
United States Atloruoy General,
supposn lio does consider favor
ably tho opinious rendered by
our Suprome Court judges and
fcolB grateful for tho position they
have taken, suppose bo does say
that heir "undor no obligations
to volunteer opinions on subjects
not boforo me," suppose bo docs
do all that tho Advertiser anys he
will probably do, what thou?
The position of the petitioners
is not uuprecodcnttHl,or unreasona
ble or unjust to President Mo
Kiiiloy or any local oflioial. A
situation has arisen on which an
honest difference of opinion exists.
Tho cit'z3ns who question the de
cision of our judges are ueither
fools nor knaves. Under our pro
eont conditions President McKin
loy is the highest couit of a pod
to which we have nccoes and there
is a Buflicieot numbor of Ameri
cans in Hawaii who bavo the
couragoof conviction to carry the
matter to a final Bettlomeut.
Lot President MoKiuloy treat
tho mattor with indifferenco, let
tho Prosident assort that the local
court is right, let him do what ho
will, tho people will accept bis de
cision as fianl and will stand
ready to congratulate tho local
judges on tho success of tbeir
work, if thoir decision provoe a
Tbo petition is certainly timely
and is no discourtesy to local offi
cials or the Prosident. Tbo desiro
is simply for a final settlement of
tho question by tho Preeidont and
bis advisers, and that decision
will be obtained, the Advortisor to
the contrary notwithstanding.
