Honolulu extends cordial oon

who, today, colclirato the fiftieth

importnut ovont of this nnniver

which the company through its

If tno Executive of Hawaii have
oco scintilla of respect for the
best interests of tho peoplo of
this territory in their appeal for
favors from tho President and
Congress, theso officers wiil coase
their constant and unwarranted
criticism of United States author

Oar citizens coa'd view the do
fenso of the officials with indiffer

like themselves, against orders of

Knowing the personal enmity
whioh the organ has toward Am
erican cflicials civil and military,
individually aud collectively, it
mav be that the local Executive
has been to somo extent misrepre
seuted by their newspaper em
ploye, but these offioials have the
power to ohaugo the coarse' of
their orcan. They have not done
it. They have furnished corro
spondenco to their oigan to
strengthen as they supposed their
defense, thereby showing the
spirit of resentment with which
they have received any interfer
ence with the cherished idea of
Criticism and abase of Presi

not new from this eourco, bat the
community is not yet so hardened
and corrupted by the official ex
ample that it will hear with pa
tience and without protest this cri
ticism and abase turned upon tho
President of what is now their
The opinion of Attorney Gener
al Griggs whioh the Hawaiian Ex
ecutive reluctantly publUhed,after
first giving the public their do
fenso to digest, convicts this Exe
cutive of having, with knowledge
in their possession, misrepresented
the reasons which guided the Pre
aidenl's action. It was not a pass
ing whim on bis part as tho Exe
cutive represented to direct the
"manner" in which they should
discharge their duties. It was sim
ply a notification that tho Hawai
ian officials bad no duties to dis
charge at all as related to the
lands, which are the public pro
perty of tho United States, and no
rights whatever in the premises.
For the President, with the opi
nion of his legal advisor before
him to have failed to give this no
tification would have beon to have'
assumed prerrogatives of Congress,
to have don the people of Hawaii
grievous barm and heaped up
trouble for the future.
As to the future and tho pros
pects of scouring a change in the
order we cannot offer muob hope.
Tho order was issued only after
due consideration on the first pre
santalion which bad been made to
tho legal adviser of tho President
and the Government. It could
bavo made and would bavo made
no differenco in his legal opinion
on the facts presented which
wero tho action past and contemp
lative of tho Hawaiian Exeoutive
and tho provisions of tho Now
landB lteolution what the Sec
retary of Stato or his assistants
had written or tho Senators and
Congressmen of tho Hawaiian
Cora mission had understood.
No ono who reads tho opinion
without local official bins can
doubt that tho disposal of lands
by the Hawaiian Executive is
stopped, irrevocably stopped until
Congress shall sanotion it. Tho
President himself has no right to
alienate Hawaii's lands. Why
then should oar officials seek to
assume a power not sought by the
President who appointed them ?
If tho order is irrevocablo as to
future disposition it must be
equally mandatory from the time
tho ielando became Ibo property
of tho United States July 7,
1898, and no discriminating favors
can bo granted innocent purchas
ers. The "official agent" and "unoffi
ciol delegate" of the local Exccu
tivo has a hard task beforo him. So
far 88 he may be able to alleviato
tho fears of iunocent purchasers
and delay summary action against
thrm we wich him success. We
are not hopeful however. We
could not be hopeful if the "un.
official delegate" wero all ho ought
to bo, which ho is not.
RELIEF A RECORD BREAKER
The bctpilal ship Belief arriv
ed thiB morning from San Fran
cisco making a splendid ran in 5
days and 1G hoars from that port.
No passegers are aboard.
The Relief was prohibited from
carrying passengers from Ban
Francisco to Manila, for what
reason tho officers of tho vessel do
not know, unless it was on account
of her limited coal cataoity.
The Belief coals here and from
here noes to Guam where she will
ooal again and take the officers of
the Brutus on to Manila.
King Bros, take pleasure in
announcing the return of their
artist, Mr. W. Y. Itow, who for
the past three months has been
spending his vacation in Japan.
While there he learned the
process of gold and silver pho
tography, which he introduces
for the first time in Honolulu.
One must see this beautiful
work to appreciate its merits.
