Mr. How Duck, ono of the Cui-uo-n

by United Stntoa officials, nnd
later, iilltiweri to bind by virtuo of

portunity to condomu Washing
ton authority and tho man or men
appointed by Washington depart
meats to carry out orders iu lln
waii. The tissue of misrepresoutatiou,
used by tho Advertiser in its
champioueliip of Mr. How Duck's
ciusp, is not worth detailing. It
is merely an exhibition of petty
persounl spito which finds uo re
sponse other than condemnation
among tho people of Hawaii.
Statement of fact, bb relates to tho
notion of Federal departments is
not to be found in the editorial
remnrke of Mr. How Duck's cham
pion. Mr. How Duck was among tho
Gbineso who arrived from China
iu tho steamor Ooptio of last Jan
uary. Mr. How Duck and his
compatriots held roturn permits
issued by the Hawaiian Govern
ment. Tho Advertiser soeks to
reprosent that it was withiu tho
province) and power of the Uuitod
States Ohiueso Inspector J. K.
Brown to allow thepo men to land.
The malicious character of this
mittrcpreeentatiou is best evidenc
ed iu tho fact that the explicit in
structions received by Chinese
Inspector Brown and the local
customs olTicials are a matter of
The instructions undor which
Chinese lusppctor Brown and tho
customs officials acted wore exact
iu detail, and left uo lonwny for
him or auy member of the Hawai
ian Government to use thoir per
sonal discretion in dealing with
the Chinese coming to Hawaii,
Tho instructions girun J. K.
Brown, the customs officials
and tho government of Hawaii
contaiucd theso pointed para
graphs: "The acting Attorney General
in tho communication referred to
also expresses tho opinion that the
Linu'ino of ptniprapli 8 of the
so-called Nowlands Resolution,
enacted by Congress aud approv
ed July 7, 1898, Duties applicable
at once the Chinese exclusion luxes of
this country to the Jfawuiiun hi
ands, and that the diverse provi
sions of the laws of tho Hawaiian
Islands regulating and restricting
tho admission thereto of Chineso,
in so far as they are
inconsistent with the triiH of thu
so oallrd NewlandB Resolution,
must bo held to bo invalid and in
applicable. A copy of th" opinion of tho
Acting Attorney General re-forrod
to is herewith transmitted for
your information, and it is res
ppctfully requested that steps may
bo taken to acquaint tho existing
Government of tho Hawaiian 1h
auds, aud particularly tho collec
tors of customs in those Islands
with its terms, aud also with tho
provisious of tho existing laws en
aotod by Congress aud the treaty
between the United Stato and
China, approved Decembers, 181)4
governing and restricting the
immigration of Chineso into the
United States, to the eud that
the same may bo ( once put in
force andcarr ed into effect in thoso
islauds, in accordance with the
provisious of the Joint Resolution
approved July 7. 189S."
"Inasmuch as the Chinese labor
ers who hare heretofore resided in
the Hawaiian Islands, and hare
already departed therefrom, did not
comply Kith the requirements of
Article J of the treaty loilh Ghinu,
prior to such departure, such laborer
cannot be permitted to return to
These were the instructions in
force whon tho Right Hon. Mr.
How Duck arrived at Honolulu
iu the steamor Coptic. Inspector
Brown, tho customs officials or
tho Hawaiian government could
do nothing but refuse him on
ontranco to tho Hawaiian Islands.
No option was givon these officers.
They must follow instruction.
The Rt. Hon. Mr. How Duok
had a right to appeal his caso to
the Secretary of the Treasury.
This ho did not do. He asserts,
as a reason for his failure, that ho
did not kuow of his right to ap
peal. If this is true it is no fault
of the officials acting under the
instructions of tho Treasury De
partment. Tho Chinese were no
tified that tuey had a right to ap
peal, although Inspector Brown
was not necessarily called upon to
givo this notification. Further
raoie Mr. How Duck could, if ho
so desired, havo rccured all urccs
sary "pointorh" from his cousul
stationed iu Honolulu.
The Rt. Hou. Mr. How Duck
and his compatriots were rejeotcd
under tho United Statos laws and
Treasury regulations then in force.
On tho arrival of tho Coptic
February 18, on her return trip to
China, no modification of such
law or regulation had been made,
no court proceedings on thoir bo
half had been instituted, nor had
any appeal from tho decision of
tho appropriate customs officials
rojecting them, boon takon to tho
Secretary of tho Treasury. Tho
stoamthip company, responsible
for bringing Mr. How Duok and
his compatriots hero, was roady to
carry them to the placo whenco
thoy came, and uoithor tho Uuited
Statos Chinese Agent nor the
collector of customs had any op
tion iu tha matter. How Duck
aud his compatriots had to bo
placed ou board tho Coptio and
Subsequent action of tho Wash
ington authorities modified tho
rulings iu such cases as Mr. How
Duck. Thcfo modifications had
not been received whon Mr. How
Duck went homo. When modi
fied instructions woro received
they were followed explicitly, as
tho previous , instructions had
Mr. How Duck says he under
stands that tho Treasury depart
ment has defrayed the expenses of
the Chineso hold at tho quaran
tine grounds. As a mattor of fact
the United States has not paid one
dollar for tho maintenance of tho
Chinese whoso light to land in
Hawaii was iu question.
Tho Advertiser says the local
government" was made a cats paw
in committing an outrngo." Tho
local government acted undor the
sumo instructions from the United
States government as did Chineso
Inspector Brown. Tho local gov
ornmont was not mado a cats
paw. The local government could
do nothing but follow orders. The
officors of The local government
like Inspector Brown are respon
siblo to tho Washington authority
aud that authority only, notwith
standing tho Adver iet5r seek to
mako it apppar that there was a
clash of authority.
Tho relations hotweon tho Spe
cial Agent of tho Treasury depart
ment aud local ollioials woro rota
tions of complete understanding
aud friendly cooperation. The
special agents of tho State
Department had nothing to do
with the mittor in any way.
Thus is the malicious character
of tho Advertiser's misrepresenta
tions mado manifest. It asks that
tho Hawaiian governmont pay tho
prico asked by Mr. How Duck
und bis compatriots, that tho peo
ple of Hawaii may become more
fully impressed with tho in
justice of Amorican government.
This altitude of the Advertiser is
consistent with its steadfast policy
to throw dieoredit upon Amorican
government, American prinoiplo
aud tho administration iu Wash
