TUESDAY, OCT. 17, 1899.
Tho official organ states that
J. W. Qirvin has resumed his po
sition as secretary of tho Ohineso
Bureau. The public has had an
idea that local oOlciala woro re
lieved of their Chinese Bure.ut
duties by Federal authority.
If llilo has to Mnit until tho
Unitod States appropriates money,
boforo obtaining a now poatofUco

Our officials havo yot to state
for what public purposes they
purchased six and n half acres of
Tantalus land by moans of an ex
chango with V. It. Oastlo. They
Trill however receivo a congres
sional guaranteo that thoy will
have ample opportunity to explain,
not only this but all land tran
sactions made sinco July, 1898.
The government organ says tho
doings of tho President's land
order ou this island "are exceed
ingly mischievous." Had our
Executive had sense enough to
read the Newlands Resolution,
they might have saved innocent
purchasers tho present unfortun
ate situation. It was local officials
not tho President who "played
An offioial organ is authority for
tbo statement that work on tho
Wailuku water system was "just
about tobepiu"wheu it wrs stopped
by the President's land order. Our
officials are apparently riding for
another fall. Wailuku people
know that work on their water
system has been "just about to be
gin" ever since the appropriation
was passed' by the Legislature.
The fanny part of this resigna
tion bueinees is that tho offioial
organ, which has said the opposi
tion wants the Executive officials
to resign, should bo tho first to
accept the canard that Mr. Dole
had resigned. Possibly tho mem
bers of tbe compact are coming to
a realization that tbe longer the
officials of tbo Happy Family re
main in office the chances of their
"holding down tbe sitiuation" be
oome steadily Icpf.
Seven hundred Japaneso can
oomo to tbe country and the of
fioial organ does not raiso a whim
per. Let a body of American
soldiers come to the city and the
moatbpieco of tho government
finds that wivos uud daughters
are in danger and officers die
grace thoir uniforms. If our
esteemed government contempor
ary wore not ever disposed to bold
up tho American soldier as a
tramp "working for ay," it
might be surprising that tbe organ
considers Japaneso laborers de
sirable oitizens and tbe American
TUB PUBLIC LAND TRANSFERS,
'When a request was made at
tho Government building for a
list of the land sales, leases and
transfers made by the local gov
ernment since July 7, 1898, tbe
reply came that this list now be
ing prepared would not bo given
to the Hawa'ian publio but would
be sent to Washington.
By what method of reason! og
the looal offioials reaoh the con
clusion that the people of Hawaii
most not know the details of the
pablio land business done sinco
annexation or bofor is a mystery.
Our offioials have yet to explain and
probatiIy"wiir riot' explain wherein
publioity of the details of publio
land transactions 'will bo damag
ing to public or piivato interests
or interfere with tho policy of tbo
national authorities. These lands
to flinch our offioials have piven
illegal titles are tho property of
tho United States held in trust
for tbo people of tbo Hawaiian
Islands. Does it conserve publio
interests that tho peoplo be kept
in ignorance of tbo transactions
carried on by tho officials to whom
land has been sold and leases
givon and what exchanges, with
whom and for what purpose, have
been trade ?
By promising to witbold this
list of transactions, our offioials
are assuming a prorogativo which
no Washington authorities dele
gate to themselves. If local auth
orities will not give out this
list it will be obtained
from Washington. Having
allowed th publication of a list
of transactions which they admit
is not correct, it would seem that
our officials are not deeply inter
ested in the people obtaining a
correct view of tbo effects of tho
Picsident's land order.

Tbo following resolution was

Whereas tbo Rev. Dr. CbarloB
M. Hydo has, after months of
suffering, been taken away from
tho scene of his earthly activities,
aDtl thereby Oabu College hat
been deprived of an able and effi
cient trustee, thorofore it is
Resolved, that tbe trustees of
Oahu College hereby express their
deop and hoartfelt sympathy with
tho beroaved family, whose great
or loss is shared in a degree only,
by this entiro community.
In bis death all good causes
havo lost an effioient and conscien
tious helper.' His talents and rare
exeoutive capaoity were over and
freely at the service of educational,
rriiyitniH ouu social progress.
Hia kindly voice and helping
hand never failed when others
needed a calm faith in God, a
clear and discriminating judgment
to untangle the intricate web
which often made living a wear!
uesR. Oabu College has lost one of its
most faithful and willing servants.
His aid and advice will bo pain
fully missed in the impor'ant do
volopments of the near, future.
But bis example and the memory
of his long and kindly service
will not bo lost.
