WEDNESDAY, AUG. '23, 1899,
Tin: co.VGiiKsMioN'Af, ctiaiuctkh.
Our evcuiuf contempornry
spottka sound spnen whoa in
speaking of th futuro govoru
mont for Hawaii it eny. "Wo
have no business to 8k for or
eipeot epecinl privileges, the
privilepo of becotniug a titritory
of the TJuiled 8taten ought to bo
quite enough for us."
But it upsets what bouse it may
Lave displayed in local matters by
giving voice to tho most remarka
ble baUlerdneh when referring to
tho interest tukeu iu uthor than
personal interests by United
Statt.fi Congressmen. This is the
opiuiou ou tbe Congressmen:
4,If a thing 13 not made n party
measure every man thinks for
.himself, and out of tho CO J mem
bers tlieie aro some bund roth who
do not c.ro to think about Hawaii.
They have other things to think
about. Not only do they know
nothing about Hawaii, but they
tlo not oren care to bo bothered
with information about Hawaii.
Their inUresto ure ceutored ou
their own state affairs, and any
thing outside this ttiev consider a
bore, But it is as threat
a truth that tho majority of Con
gress knows very little about tho
Inlands and cares stilt less."
Sued balderdash is neither true
nor does it well became citiz-us
soaking favors from (ho United
States government to treat tbo
uuonleof nowlv acquired territory
: i j.... i is... t.
to sucu nn euuc&uuiiai puuuy. j.i
is true hnt the majority of Unit
ed Statce Congressmen arc placed
in the supremely celBsh category
by such men as Edward Atkinson
aud the great and only Godkin,
but they aro not so considered by
the people of the United Stctoi
nor by the President of the Unit
The Congressman who does not
tnko an interest iu the affairs of
tlio nation as brought up iu tho
consideration of tho government
of now territory is tho exception
ralhor than tho rule. There aro
ward politicians who look no fur
ther than the private intorests of
themselves and their constitutors.
Thoy ore not a majority by any
moans aud their iuQunon and
career in Congress is short lived.
If the government's special agoat
to Washington anticipates dealing
with a majority of n character de
picted by this quasi govornmont
organ, he will at least secure va
luable education during his stay
in Washington, and probably
A PIOl'N FRAUD.
It is highly proper that private
interests that will be more or less
effected by legislation for Hawaii,
fihould secure representation at
(be Congressional session that
opens in Docembor. It is quite in
kcoping with Ametican custom
that Gnancial or petsnnal interests
maintain u representative iu the
Washington lobby to watch the
course of legislation and oblaiu
what fnvors are sought for.
But the man who accepts a com
mission from the Hawaiian Gov
ernment to represent Hawaii be
fore (VrgrenB will bo aud eau bo
nothing uioro or legs than n pious
fraud. Armed with a government
commission the special ngent will
pnbo as a roprodentutive of the Ha
waiian peop'o, though he well
knows that the nllicinU from whom
ho takes his commission do not
represent the people of Hawaii,
men wLo today hold thoir ofliccs
by virtue of uppriiilinuut not from
(l.o vot ot the Huwmi'iii people.

A spojial representativo sent to
Washington by appointment from
tho Executivo Council will repre
sent nothing but tho peYsoqal
views that he or individual mem
bera of the Excutio Council may
have of Hawaii's iicceasitim.
Evory dollar drawu from the pub
lic treasury to pay the expenses of
this representative will be a dollnr
oxponded dishonestly. When lb'
Hawaiian commission was iu see
sion iu Honolulu, did the people
of the islands consider that the
members of tho Executive Council
wore lepresenlativo eueyelopedixs
upon whose personal recommend
ations bifore tho Coinin bsiou Ih
people would rest their canoe ?
Did they conbider the Eccutivo
Council or imy man named by the
Council a proper medium through
which to convey tho inteiests of
the people P
The proposition for the Hawai
ian Executive to Bend n special
representative to Washington aud
pay bis oxpensos from Diplomatic
aud consular appropriation is a
a fraudulent proposal from begin
ning to end.
The Planters' Aeociatiou and
tho Chamber of Commorco ehonld
certainly havo their interests rep-
Portuguese, nativo Hawaiian?, the
Bar Association or the religious,
societies might well follow tho
same course; there is no objection
to the members of tho Executivo
Couucil having their private agent
iu Washington, but to pay tho es
pouses of any ono or all the so
special reproaentative-j from the
fuuds in the public treasury is
unjust, uncalled for aud traudu

A force of Uuited States troops
from Quingua, four miles north
oait of Malolos, and from Dalinnc
near liustos, about six mileb
northeast of Quingua, encoun
tered a body of insurgents of
about 500 half way bstw'i-n I3us
tos and Quincua. Iu the engauu-
munt that ensued the rilipiuon
wore severely punished aud scat
tered. Tho Americans lost one
man kilhd. Tno inturgont'
force is believed lo have been
under command of General Paolo
del Pilar and lo have had iu viow
the tearing up of the railway at
Docavo and liiga, about three
miles of Bulncan.
A battalion of the Twenty Hist
Iufantry will be sent to these

Thoro are two acting British Con
suls at Apia, and each ono does
not know what to do because of
the other. Tho peculiar state of
affairs arose from the fuct that one
was appointed at Auckland aud
tho other at Suva.
