Tne Advertiser strikes straight to

Query: The statement of the
Board of Agriculture relative to the
transfer of property on Tantalus.
Was that a misn presentation ?
Lord Uoseberrv spoke sometime
ago of the "English spenking
brotherhood." Ambassador Choate
says "Iron clad friendship." All of
which is due notice to continental
Kurope that they may know where
to find us.

In other words our good friend
who is receiving pay from the Dip
lomatic and Consular appropriation,
is receiving the same consideration
as the lawyer acting for private in
terests. The lawyers have submit
ted their case to the judge, and
there the matter rests until the
Judging from the unction with
which the Executive explains the
doings of its special agent, it would
seem that they harbored a fear that
he would be tired out of court with
out a hearing. If such a thought
did cause the Executive kneA to
tremble, it merely shows how little
our officials appreciate the marked
consideration with which President
McKinley and his Cabinet treat
any and every petitioning American
citizen. Larry Godkin of the
Evening Post or Agulnaldo Atkin
son would doubtless be granted a
personal hearing at Washington if
they aled it.
It is possible though not probable
that the President, acting under the
hypnotic spell of the lawyers, will
rescind his order or guarantee the
titles given to public lands by the
Executive since July 7, 1898.
Though it would be gratifying to
have the majority of these titles
ratified, it is extremely doubtful
that the President or tre Attorney
General will go before Congress
with a "later edition' interpreta
tion ot the Newlands Resolution.
As previously staled by the BULLE
TIN, the Attorney General's de
cision in one respect placed the in
nocent purchasers on the same
plane as the squatters The Pre
sident did -his duty as outlined by
the Resolution of Annexation and
turned all claimants to the public
of Hawaii over to Congress
Mr. Dole is quoted as authorit
for the statement that Senator Cv
lorn hopes for the enactment of ter
ritorial bill lor Hawaii, "with slight
modifications. " Coining from an
official source, this information iini
cites that even Mr. Cullom has
given up hope of overcoming the
.mistakes of the local government
officials since the CommisMon held
its sessions in Honolulu.
The day of the arrival of the last
steamer from the Coast, the BUL
LETIN'S contemporaries published
more less lengthy Washington dis
patches stating that Dewey was
soon to be mariied. The BULLETIN
published the same day a full ac
count ot Admiral Dewey's wedding,
which account was copied in full by
the Advertiser and in part by the
Star. Acknowledge that yuu'were
scooped and look smiling.
Good citizens of Hawaii who pat
ted their stomachs with a satisfied
air when they noted the continua
tion of 'Hawa'ii's tariff regulations
after annexation, are now beginning
to realize that Hawaii's tariff laws
were continued in force to placate
American opponents of annexation.
These same opponents are now in
line, or soon will be, to place Ha
waii on the colonial list of new pos
sessions with a discriminating duty
against Hawaii's sugars.
which, alone, lias the authority for
management and disposition. And
it is not improbable that Congress
will place the investigation of the
public land transfers by the Hawai
ian Government in the hands of the
Secretary of Agriculture, as fore
shadowed in the Cullom b II.
Such a solution, with a delay in
the enforcement of the eomm md to
return money to innocent purchas
ers, should certainly be.satisf.ictoiy
to our officials and acceptable to
thosf who find the title to their pro
perty is in doubt, Those in posses
sion of questionable titles would
thus be come tenants at will, with
the guarantee, in event of their
titles being revoked, that the Unit
ed States will require the return
of purchase money.

President Gelir of the Hilo-Koha-l.i
railroad has stated that he does
not anticipate Executive action re
scinding the land order. Mr. Gthr
has not a little at stake in this busi
ness but we have yet to hear him
reiterate the charge, of misrepresen
tation, made by the Executive. As
a progressive American he has con
fidence in tile good judgement of
Congress and goes ahead, appre
ciating that whatever he may lose
as a result of the order, he will not
gain nriything by accusing Federal
officials with ignorance.
LAND ORDER AFFAIRS.
According to all reports issued
from official sources relative to Un
official Delegate Hartwell's work, it
appears that Mr. Hartwell has fur
nished the Executive assurances
that he is earning his salary. Noth
The work of the unofficial dele
gate, burdened with war records
and the Pacific cable, may be sized
up in much fewer words than the
government has devdted to it. First,
he 1 has been cordially received by
the Federal officials. Hartwell says
so and t must be so. Second, the
Federal officials have consented to
accept a brief which Mr. Hartwell
is to prepare on the subject of pub-'
lie lands in Hawaii. It is also an
nounced that Mr. Ballou acting as
the legal representative of a local
If our officials accepted the situa
tion w til less malicious spirit ai
banked lrss oh the charge off mi'
repr s' ntation we would be dispr
eu to oe more comment 01 tne sue-
tvss of the petition to guaranty
titles. The officers of the arrr
and navy are regarded by Washing
ton officials as neither fools not
knaves, whatever may be the esti
mate inferred by local officials. Tht
fust interpretation of the NewUnds
Kesolution as regards the public'
lands was made in response to a
question propounded bv the W ar
Department, and it is safe to as
sume that tile represtntations of
army anu navy otticers nail as
I much or more to do with the nro
mulgation of the land order as tin
statements of any of our local citi
zens. Admitting that our officials and
their friends can, with impunity,
charge local citizens with being po
litical schemers and falsifiers, we
doubt that American officers will be
held to answer for such a charge by
tne I'resiuent anu his Cabinet.
When the Government raises the
cry of misrepresentation, it is shak
ing its fist at two departments of
the United States government that
will play a part ot ever increasing
importance in this military and
naval outpost of the United States
if members of the government or
their agent believe they can gain
any tiling by attacking these depart
ments, they ure free to hoc their
own independent row. The army
and navy have ever proved able to
take care of themselves. Such po
licy however will, to say the least,
accomplish meagre results in the
interests of innocent purchasers.
This is not the first time, in post
annexation history, the Hawaiian
Executive lias attacked its former
Americans friends in its efforts to
establish its independent authority
over Federal officers.
