Seprotary ltootsnya if moro th an
50,000 men aro needed in tho
Philippines they will be promptly
forwarded. Now the war depart
ment "is talkiDg." Tho people
know Hoot as n man of action.

a full territorial government.

If the government showed one
half tho interest in carrying on
public works and providing funds
for successful work in tho vruous
departments, that it docs in send
ing a special representative to
Washington, the pnoplo might
gain some confidence in the local
administration. "Cut down ox
penso" ietho order given in near
ly every buieBii of tho government,
yet tboro seemB to be plenty of
money! to spend on fruitless mis
sions. Tho excuse given is donbt-1-
ss that money appropriated for
tho paymentgof officials caunot bo
used by tho departments. Tho
situation is such however that tho
government can, if it wants to, so
care authority from Washington
to increase tho moneys placed at
the disposition of government
bureausr. If thero is money avail
ablo to send men to Washington,
that money would far better bo
uied by the Board of Education
or the Public Works department.
It behooves the government to
use somo of its strenuous effort in
behalf of the people of Hawaii .
SPECIAL HKPUKSKNTATIVK AGAIN
Again the proposition to have
a special government pleader sont
to Washington during tho next
Congressional session has come
up. Just what advantage is to
accrue to Hcwaii by having such
an individual in Washington has
yet to bo made clear. The idea of
paying government funds to sup
port a special representative in
Washington undor prcsont condi
tions is as foolish us was the govern
ment's plan to hold the elections
whether or no. Wo already have
Mr. Dolo and Juitice Frear,
members of the Hawaiian Com
mission, and if the Washington
friends of Hawaii think that tho
situation calls for the assistance of
a special Hawaiian representative
they will doubtless call upon ono
of these) gentlemen to "come on.'
Is it the inditFerenco previously
shown the Hawaiian Commission
ers that now moves tho govern
ment to send a man whether or
no? Does the local govornmoot
considor itself bettor able to seloct
tho men needed, than President
MoKiuley? Or is it that private
iutcres'H want special representa
tion and tho government is willing
to Baddlo tho people with tho ox
ponsos of his stay at tho capitol?
Tho policy of tho administra
tion toward Hawaii is vary woll
known; the plan has boen laid
and at best tho special roprosont
ativti from Hawaii would be little
moro than an office buy uulues ho
ojoupird M timo sookini' to so

If ill if work of liHuiii'ing special
exceptions in what thegovprutnout
wants done, tho only rosult will
be tho hampering of the adminis
tration forces by tho schemo so
common to Hawaii of playing into
tho hands of tho onomy.
If any particular coterie of men
want special representation iu
Washington lot them pay for it.
The government officials havo no
right or authority unless it is
the usual assumed authority to
spt-ud government funds for pay
ing the oxpensos of somo expen
sive lawyer to appear in Hawaii's
bshalf. Tho people aro satisfied
to lot thoir internets rest in tho
hands of President MoKiuley.

Several of the documonts aro

that when certain words and ex

a translation and was allowed to

valuable assistance to tho mem-

Tho precautionary police meas

tachments of infantry, instead 'of
gendarmes cordoned tbo streets
