Much lins boon said of tho Ha
waiian Government's dosiro to do
away with tho penal coutract labor
laws and such municipal laws in
Hawaii, not specially continued in
forco by tho Newlnnds' resolution,
oa nro manifestly contrary to
tho constitution. Apparontly tho
executive officials of Han nii aro ob
ligal, whether or no, to onforcc
these laws, by virtuo of tho doci
siou of the Supreme Court. Tuub
thoy stand presumably with thoir
hands tied, but sorrowful that thoy
must stand by the law nnd wait for
tho Uuitod States Cougross to tako
action. Tho full responsibility for
laws not m keeping with the spirit
of tho Constitution of tho United
States is thrown upon President
MoKiuloy and Coufjress.
Has it cvor occurred to the exe
cutive officials of Hawaii to seri
ously consider whether or no they
h'tvo the right to call an extra sec
sion of tho Legislature nnd securo
a repeal of tho conlrnct 'labor laws
and thereby assume somewhat of
the responsibility as well os
tho glory of placing Hawaii
on an American basis and there
by placing upon "our enemies in
Cougross" any and nil responsi
bility for placing Hawaii on an
unAmencan basis ? Is it truo
that the officials of Hawaii consi
der it improper for them to as
sume an active part in moulding
tho Hawaiian laws, so far as pos
sible, into tho American cast
which, on tho surface, they hope
tho American Congress will turn
out f Is it truo that tho executivo
officials cannot call upon the leg
islative branch, continued in
office by itho President ?
Tho official organ sometime ago
suggested the appointment of a
local com miobiou to plead Hawaii's
cause before Congress. It fights
shy, however, of: auggestiug action
on the part of any official in tho
Executive, Judicial and Legisla
tive branch of the Government
whioh ehall place beyond question
tho integrity of Hawaii in Uu do
mauds for full American laws.
l4 thin lack of activity in offi
cial life due to a dosiro to act iu
full pecordanen with administra
tion officials or is the result ot a
desire to keep Hawaii's penal con
tract labor laws iu force as long as
possible, hoping still that bysooib
hook or crook aomo vestioe'of
those laws may bo retninod when
