TO Tlln CONSTITUTION
Tho Supreme Court, in seeking
to avoid tbo nmendmout of any
part or pitta of Hawaiian laws by
tbo Constitution of tho United
States, enters into a considera
tion of eacb of tbo uogativo quali
fications attaobod by tbo Joint Re
solution of annexation to tbo oper
ation of tboBo laws. Tbo language
of tbo Joint Resolution is as
"Tbo municipal legislation of
tbo Hawaiian Islands not enacted
for tbo fulfillment of tbo treaties
bo extinguished, and not inconsist
cdwilh this joiat resolution, nor
contrary to tbo Constitution of tbo
United States, nor to any existing
treaty of tbo United States, shall
remain in force until tbo Congress
of tbo United States shall other
Tbo Supromo Court holds that
each of thoso four negative quali
fications, is meroly declaratory,
and that nonoof them is inserted
for any putpose of onacting legis
lation, or positively affecting tbo
laws oE tbo Islands. The
Court assumes to find independ
ent positive legislation tlsowbere
in the joint resolution correspond
ing to tho end of thoso negative
qoaliGcations, excepting that
which relates to tbo Constitution
of tbo United Stato9. As to that
qualification, no effect is allowed
to it by the Court which cau con
flict in any manner with Hawai
ian law?, upon tbo supposed
ground that Congress did not in
tend by that mero negative lan
guage to legislato tbo Constitu
tion into these Islands, but only
intended to drclaro that tho an
nexation itself was constitutional
Tbo Court argues that tho first
negative qunliBcation is merely
declaratory, because Congress ex
pressly extinguished tho Hawai
ian treaties. But the Court in
consistently fails to observe that
CongroEs by that declaration did
not declare expressly anything
about tbo la ws of tbo Islands, and
according to themselves, thoso
laws must not bo repealed by im
plication I If they aro not repeal
ed, and the negative qualification
was not intended to annul thorn,
thon they aro not annulled.
Tho Court says, in rogard to tbo
socond qualifying clause, that tho
joint resolution expressly altered
Hawaiian legislation in regard
to Chinese immigration, and pre
sumably altered it by implication in
8omo respects! What? It seems
romarkablo that tbo samo Court
talks in almost the same breath
about presumable alteration of Ha
icaiian lines by implication, while it
declares that tbo alteration or re
poal of statute is io( to be. im
2lied, if it can bo possibly
nvoidod? But Congress said
nothing about Hawaiian lawn
on tho subject of immigration,
but spoko only of its own laws.
If Hawaiian laws inconsistent
with tho joint rosolution aro uot
repoalod and tbo negative quali
fication does not annul thon they
aro not annullod.
Tho same thing may be said as
to laws "inconsistent with existing
troaties of tho United States" No
laws of Hawaii aro boforo men
tioned in tho resolution, and if
any of thorn aro annulcd as con
trary to any existing treaty of tho
United States, it is upon tbo same
ground that thosa contrary to tbo
' Constitution of tbo United States
nro annuled, namely, that tboy
are annuled by force of the supreme
law of Vie land.
Tho Supreme Court fallaciously
overlooks tho recognition by Con
gress of tbo operativo action of
tbo Constitution of the United
Statos itself as tbo supromo law
of tbo land, in annulling all info
rior legislation contrary theroto.
Its position, when all is said
practically amounts to this ab
surdity: Tho ?nuiiWjal laics of tho
Hawaiian Islands ho! enacted for
tbo fulfillment of tho treaties so
extinguished and enacted for their
fulfillment, and not inconsistent
with this joint resolution, and
inconsistent therewith, nor contrary
to the Constitution of tbo
United States, am! contrary
thereto, nor to any existing
treaty of tbo United Stales and
contrary thereto, nro coutinned
in force until Congress shall
othorwise determiuo I
AMKm:i) " JOINT HP.HOLl'
TION. Tho Joint Resolution providoa
that "Tho municipal legislation of
tho Hawaiian IelandB, not ex
acted for t o fulfillment of tbo
treaties so extinguished, and not
inconsistent with this joint reso
lution, nor contrary to tho Constitu
tion of tbo United Statos nor to aty
existing treaty of the United
States shall remain in forco until
tbo Congress of tho United Status
shall otberwiso dctermino."
Tie Advortiser statos that
"whonover a law has been duly
passed by Congress and approved
of by tho President, it roraains in
force until repealed as provided by
tbo Constitution. Tho President
cannot alter or nullify it, "and thon
tbo Advortisor procoeds to alter
and nullify it by treating the pro
vision thoroiu nor "contrary to tho
Constitution of tbo Unitod Statos"
as having been stricken therefrom
by soma power greater than the
President of the United States
"provided by tho Constitution."
Accordingly tbo Advertiser now
states tho provision to be "the
municipal legislation of tho Ha
waiian Islands not enacted for tbo
fulfillment of tbo troaties so ex
tinguished and not inconsistent
with this Joint Resolution shall
romain in force until the Congress
of the Unitod States shall other
Considering that our Supremo
Court has in its lato decisions
practically eliminated from the
Joint Resolution tho provision
"nor contrary to tho Constituti on
of the United Statos" it is not sur
prising that the Advertiser should
expungo from tho resolution this
Tho Joint Resolution having
boen so amended by tbo Adver
tiser, wo presumo that in accord
ance with tho statement that tbo
original "remains in force until
repealed, as provided for by the
Constitution, it has found some
constitutional provision for its
action in striking from the Rosolu
tion tbo words"nor contrary to (he
Constitution of tho United States"
and wo confidently await tho
publication of this provision of
the Constitution conferring powor
upon tho Advertiser to "ropeal"
