Tho Hawaiian Executive's "transi

boomerangs for Hawaii's Congress

Duubtlcss It appears strange- to our

Thcro Is ono solar plexus blow at the
Opposition which tho Government has
failed to deliver. The American whe

nine cases out of ton coincides with
tho opinions expressed by tho so-called

doubt "How long will wo hold our Jobs

Provlous to the Ohio election tho
New York World said "Republican

tho attachment ot tho American pco
plo to their ancient principles ot lib

the disdain of tho American pooplo for
proposals which abrogato them." Re
publicans did not suffer losses, tho
President's policy ot expansion wns
clearly endorsed and tho peoplo hnvo
not becomo divorced from their an
cient principles. Instead of going to
tho bow-wows, tho nation Is In tho
straight path of dutiful progress.
Tllli CASE OP IIIARA.
In delibeiatlng on the application for a
reprieve for lhnr.i, sentenced to the deatli
penalty, Mr. Dole faces a responslbllliy,
by far the most serious that has rested up
on him since the Hag was raised. A hu
man life Is in the balance.
While the constitutional decisions
promulgated by our couits may be the
best law ever conceived by mankind, the
ptople of tiiese Islands are not In a stale of
mind to accept it as such until endorsed
by the highest authoMiy of the nation.
On the otlnr hand there are those w ho
believe the decisions to be good law but
doubt their political expediency. An In
cident of this diameter Is no occasion for a
display of political bias, but rather for the
highest degree of humanity known to the
heart of mankind. The possible doubt in
tlie technicalities of the law certainly docs
exist in the minds of some of the most
conservative citizens, nor does the expres
sion of tills doubt signify a reflection upon
the Integritv of the courts.
"Reversal of decisions made by the
biightest and best of legal minds is not
unknown to history and doubtless always
will be incidents of history. No man
lives who can state, beyond the question
of a doubt, what answer the Supreme
regal authority of the United States will
give. No citizen of Hawaii from the least
to the greatest denies that the Executive,
Judicial and i eglslatlve authority is feel
ing its way through chaotic conditions,
the outcome of which no human mind can
forecast. The last appcil Is made
to the Executive authority. It U an wu:
slun In which charges of political infiuenc
.r expediency have no place, nor has an
nun a right to make su.h charges I'
jubllc or in private when referring to tli
elatlons of the legd or executive brand
if the government wNi the case.
Tllli COLONIAL SCMEMURS.

facture nnd copyrighted tho Hawaiian

nial rule or tho continuance of tho pres
ent unsatisfactory conditions, thnn

Congressional enemies had our offi
cials followed a strict American nnd
patriotic course. Notwithstanding Its
opinions of tho capacity nnd motives of
tho Executive, tho Bulletin Is not dis
posed to advocate that tho peoplo stand

Tho policy of tho Executive has not
been popular tit home and wo now see
Indications that It receives scant sup
port, to say the least, from tho people
of tho Malnlnnd. Hut what Is to be
gained by tho peoplo of the United
States In fotclng upon Hawaii cither n
colonial form of government with dis
criminating duties, or n continuation of
the present stato of affairs?
Though punishment for tho official
sliis of tho "trunsltlon period" may
seem Justified, why should this punish
ment be visited upon tho people, pres
ent citizens and Americans who nix
coming nnd will come to mako their
homo In Hnwnll, who aro by no meaiiB
responsible for the errors of the ofll
clnls? Hawaii is charged with having al
lowed the Importation of thousands of
contract laborers since American sov
ereignty wns declared. Who Is respon
sible for the Importation of these
Asiatics? Who but tho Executive offi
cials, who, under tho Inws of Hawaii,
have tho right to refuse as woll as
grant tho Introduction of Asiatic con
tract labor? Our cjlMclitts figured out
tho policy. Tho peoplo governed them
Admitting thut thu "transition pe
riod" manipulations hnvo gone beyond
tho propcr"bounds, what Is to bo gain
ed to Amohcau Interests by Congress
creating a condition lu Hawaii accept

posed to uttract new settlers and busi
ness men rrom tho Mainland? A most
unsatisfactory stato of affairs will bo
created by tho enactment of a colonial
schemo of government or tho exten
sion of tho present chaos by falluro to
Admitting that Hawaii Is overrun
and overloaded with on Oriental popu
lation, tho Asiatic forces will not sut

shutting out Americans. Tho Asiatics
aro hero and whllo Congress can com
mand and should command, that there
bo no further Increase, i. will bo strik
ing American Interests In tho face Dy
lessoning the advantages Hawaii offers
American settlers. Dy placing a bar
rier against Hawaii's freedom ot trade
with the Mainland markets, tho uutl
Asiatic beet sugar brigade Injures the
prospects of tho California American
farmers and tho Portuguese-American
farmers as well as tho Chinese and Jn
pancso contract laborers.
Theso Americans aro not accustom
ed to and will not bo satisfied to Hvo
under an American rule that does not
glvo them all tho political rights or
tho industrial privileges enjoyed In tho
territories In tho "home land." The
Portugueso may be accustomed to tho
colonial scheme, but ho old not enlist
his efforts In tho cnuso of nnncxntlon
to securo a political or Industrial situa
tion not nltogcthcr unlike that of tho
country which ho left to better his con
dition. His cstlmato nnd tho estimate
of his children, ot tho protcctlvo liber
ality of American rule will not bo en
hanced, nor the patriotic love for tru-ir
ndoptcd country bo Increased by a colo
nial government which hedges them In
with discrimination. Tho principal
lesson he can draw ftom such a stato
of affairs, and teach his children U,
"Tills Is what you get when nd-lntcr-
lin olllclnls try to 'do' tho American

teeming with beneficial Influence on tho

citizens. Particularly Is thlo truo
when, as lo tho fact, tho popular cla

present Territorial regulations evolv
ed by Cougrcss.
A fulfilment ot tho colonial Idea
means no small reduction In tho pur
chasing power of Hawaii. Tho sugar ba
rons of tho States may experience a
thrill of horror when noting the largo
amount of money paid for our principal
product, hut with discrimination
against that product, our merchants
will never mnko tho showing of $13,
000,000 of purchases made, during nine
months, In tho Mainland mnrkcts.
During tho twenty-ono months end
ing Sept. 30, 1899, Hnwnll mado pur

amount of '.'0,000,000. A discriminat
