OLAA KQUATIKUS AND Pl'ULHl LANDS
In its attitude on tho dispofii
tiou of public luuile, as (nought
out by the squatters ou Olaa
liuda, tbo. Hawaiian Executive
ruua a closo second to the Su
preme Court iu its notable "con
stitutional" decisions. Tbo Court
created some enlirtly new points
in its sizing up of tbo Nowlaud
Resolution, and now Mr. Dole has
announced, through ono of his
organs, that ho intends giving
Secretary of State Hay instruc
tions on tho construction of tho
Newlnnds Resolution in its ref
erence to Hrwuu's public laiicle.
These instructions from the
Hiwniiau Government to Secre
tary Hay are the result of a letter
transmitted to Mr. Dole from
Secretory Hoy, which letter Mi.
Dole s"ys is "vaguo." Mr. Dole
does not soy whether that letter
ordeicd him to stay proceedings
in tho salo of public lauds,
whether it asked for instructions
from Mr. Dole as to this Govern
ment's position or whether it said
nothing.) From Mr. Dole's stoto
ment that the letter is "vague,"
wo may , presume the last con
struction is given by this govern
ment. At all events, nohvilh
Btanding the officers of tho Un
waiian Government must take
their orders through Secretary
Hay from the President, wo find
this government still riding its
high independent official horsu,
and informing the Hawaiian pub
lio that it considers its opinions
on the construction of the New
lands Resolution quite as import
ant ns the opinious of officials iu
Wiinluugtou, uuaor wuose per
eonal direction tho affairs of Ha
waii have been placed by Con
The positionltakon by tho gov
ernment, as outlined in Mr. Dole's
interview, makes it apparent that
in the future, officials in Washing
ton must word their messages iu
tbe samo way they dealt with the
Spanish "thon shall or thou shall
not." ToJ roadily accept the view
taken by Amerioan officials as
contained in tbe statement of the
United States Attorney General
that "tho public lands of Hawaii
cannot be disposed of except by
special act of Congress" is wholly
beyond j.'the intention of the of
ficials ofHawaii. Tho govern
ment does not stop the sale of
Hawaii's"publio lands it post
pones the salo and asserts its
Buperiorj knowledges of tbe inter
pretation of the Newlands Reso
lution, Mr. Dole giving due notice
that he will inform bis superior
officer, Secretary Hay, on what
"lines Wo have boon running
hero since last August."
Considering the stay of pro
ceedings brought about by Secre
tary Hay's "voguu" letter, it is
likely the position takon by Wash
ington authorities jb that the of.
ffcialB of Hawaii have no right to
sell tho publio lands of the Ha

Mr. Dole's government has sold
all the lands it wants to sell.
Whother the Oloa snuattors
eventually securo tho land they
havo occupied or not, 'they are to
be congratulated in bringing be
fore tbo propor authorities the
tho situation relative to Hawaii'
publio landB. Under tho policy
followed by Mr. Dole, tho pur
obnsors of Hawaii publio land
must conform to tho conditions
continued in tho laws of Hawaii.
To tho American citizen coming
from tho States, those conditions
nro practically impossible. Yet
the newly arrived Americin has
as much right to tho publio lands
of Hawaii ob any oitizen or any
special donizencd oitizen of Ha
