Siuco Iho police nuthorilies are

with the Americnn nrmy oflkorB

TUB K' lOHK SUN ANIJ OUll OFFI.
Just fourteen montns and twelve
dayd nftor the flag raising wo Bnd
tho official organ of the Hawaiinrj
Governmont calling for an expla
nation for tho criticism, of acts of
our local Executive, rnado by tho
Now York Sun, a paper that for
yoars took tho loading part iii
fighting battles of Hawaiian an
nexation and now stands aB tho
strongest administration papar in
tho United States. Tho Sun is
an exponent of strong American
ism; it believes in tho ting and
Las confidenco in tho ability of
tho Amorican peoplo to uphold
tho honor of tho nation wherever
tho ting may bo planted.
The explanation of the piesont
variance of the New York Sun
with our officials aud their organ
is not far to seek. Immidintely
following tho annexation, tho Pa
cifij Commercial Advertiser whose
ult9rancoa have beon prompted
by local officials, laid its course
along tho lineB followed by God
kin's Evening Post and tho'Uos
tou Transcript. Loyalty to the
flag and American principle) ws
a myth one annexation was se
cured. Mugwump principles
found greatest favor in official
circles onco the ond, for which
they sought tho patriotic euppott
of tbo Sun, nns attained.
On tho other hand the Sun has
Buffered no rolapso of loyalty to
the American caueo it eo gallantly
I jught. It has consistently bowed
etrnipht to the Americnn lino.
Advocating the extension of Am
orican sovereignty and power, it
baa not weakened or faltered in de
manding that tbo administration
of new poEBessions must follow
tho straightforward, virilo Amori
can policy which rojolled in tho
extension of Amorican sovereign
ty. This sovereignty must be real,
not nominal as our officials bavo
Bought to mako it.
Nor is the criticism of tho Dole
policy by the Sun now or wonder
fol. In an editorial from tho New
York Sun, published by tho Bul
letin Angust 25, i found this ex
" But behind tho division on
linos of constitutional thoory and
juridical oonvenienco, there is an
equally distinct lino of partition
which separates two contradicting
and conflicting manifestations of
" One party in Hawaii wishes to
bo wholly American.
" Tho other party wishes to bo
Amorican enough to get all the
advantages which tbo flag brings,
and yet to romain Hawaiian
enough to preservo all tho local
advantages of tho old system, and
particularly to retain tbo offices.
" Withwhioh parly will Ameri
can sentiment on tbo mainland
As tho Bulletin said at tbo
time, " Considering tho past re
cord of tbo Sun and tbo annexa
tion tarty of tho mainland, this
quostion easily answers iteolf."
And " President " Dolo by bis
publio utterances baa clearly de
monstrated with which party bo
and his Happy Family bavo align
Now, when " Preaidont " Dolo
iattken vory sharply to task for
his aniouncoment to the Hawai
ian publio that Secretary Hay
docs not know his business, the
organ cries out "Why should suoh
things be ? " And evon at this
stago of tho game, aftor our offici
als bavo received numerous set
baoks from Washington authori
ties, tho officials continuo in their
policy of seeking to establish h
defence by rsitrratiug tho charge
that Seoretary Hay who is " Pro
Bident " Dole's superior, does not
know his business, (bat the Ha
waiian Executive fetill is right and
Washington authorities aud the
American people pro wrong.
The official organ says, "tbo
Suuidid not know, whon it miulo
its comment on Mr. Dolo's con
duct, Ithat, at tho timo of annexa
tion ho carefully framed questions
on many doubtful points, and
asked to bo guided from Wash
ington." As usual lho organ begs the
question. The criticism by tho
Sun is based on tho act of Presi
dent Dole, who, on receiving a
lettor from Secrotary Hay, did not
stop tho sale of publio lands but
assutmd tho authority of postpon
ing tho salo and publicly rebuked
tho sonrco of his authority. It is
reasouablo to suppose that this
notification from Hay was couch
ed inlanguago designed to sparo
Mr. Dole's feolings. It is also
safe to asBumo that Iho letter was
wiitten in intelligible language,
intelligible nt least to an official
not jealous of bis independent
authority. Siuco our officials
have beon so quick to givo out de
partmental correspondence with
which to ranko a defence, why
should they not mako publio tho
llay letter which Mr. Dolo cha
racterized ns "vague?"
It was not necessary tint the Sua
should know tho questions Mr.
Dole had propounded. Mr.Doleby
act and deed sought to establish
that tbo American officials in
whoso hands Congress placed the
direction of thogovornment of tbo
Hawaiian Islands, aro incapable
and ignorant. Tbo Sun gavo Mr.
Dole's words and acts tbo only in
torpretntion that could bo givon
by fair minded Americans who
havo the least knowledgo of thp
relations of Hawaiian officials to
Wasbingtont;autbority under tho
Our officials might well con
sider themselves fortunato that
tbo Now York Sun did not know
of tho "carefully framed ques
tions" which Mr. Dolo propound
ed for guidance. Tho Sun's
knowledgo of tbeso questions
conld only mako the position of
Mr. Dolo and bis followers moro
What wore theso "carofully
First Should not vacanoies oo
curing in tho offices of Hawaiian
Governmont officials bo filled by
appointment, a), provided by the
laws of Hawaii? That is, new ap
pointments should be made by Mr.
Dolo and bis frionds. The offices
first appealed to our officials' sense
of important questions.
Second "What shall Mr. Dole's
title bo? Should be not continue
to sign as tho President of tbo
Bopublio of Hawaii?" Offices
first, titles next. What would our
officials bo without thoir offices
and their titles?
Third "Should not President
Dole continuo) to exeonto land
patents and(deeds in tbo ordinary
dealing witbf Government lands
undor the Hawaiian land laws?'"
This third "carefully framed
question" was4the first and only
query which "President" Dolo
presented to this superiors rela
tive to the disposition of Hawaii's
publio lands. When tbo Seore
tary of State replied: "Resolu
tion provides that land laws of
the United States shall not apply
to publio lands in Hawaii, and
that municipal legislation gen
erally shall remain in force," the
Happy Family turned on full
steam, bartered and sold publio
lands and hold Federal army and
navy officials at arms length.
When American oitizens pro
tested against the salo of pub
lio lauds and called for an
interpretation of the Newlands
Resolution by tho legal depart
ment of tho United States, tbo
Hawaiian officials, jealous of tbeir
independent authority pushed the
protest aside. No interioronco
with local official functiono would
!Tho "carefully framed quet
tioue," which Mr. Dole propound
od.bcgged tho quostion. Thoy woro
an appoal for powor. Tho reply
of tbo Secrotary of Stato was not
considered ''vaguo" because, from
that I'epljtbo much sought powor
might bo inferred. Although,
after this reply was received, able
lawyers questioned tho right of
our officials to givo unquestioned
titlo to Hawaii's publio lands,
tboeo officials did not press more
explicit instructions. Tbey told
the public that the "instructions"
wero exact and refusal tboso "in
structions" to tho general public
until it wob proved by Americnn
citisteus and American officials
that they wore not explicit and
did not clothe Hawaiian officials
with tho power which they were
quick to graBn and bo loth to
give up. This tardy recognition
of superior authority was evid
enced in tho public rebuko Mr.
Dolo administered to Secretary
Hay and the Attorney General
which rebuko was followed up by
spiteful criticism of the President
of tho United States.
Nor is this policy of rebuke yet
at an end. Tho officials through
their official organ still hold out
tho hope to their friend tbat,tbro
ugh the medium of the unofficial
delegato and special agent with
many war records, tho order will
be rescinded, the Hawaiian Ex
ecutive proved right and tho P.o
