The Hiirphin problem Is merely one of
a surplus of problems which Hnwnll
has to solve.
Electricians of the day hao almost
reached the point whero they can glvo
whatever the public nsks for, whether
It bo mechanical appliances or the an
nihilation of spare.
So the "Federal Government" admits
Its mistake in stating that Hawaii was
under military rule. V have yet to
learn that the "federal doernment"
has made the statement that Hawaii Is
or has been under the rule of the War
Our Executives now begins to see Its
mistake In holding out the hope. If not

THE NEW SPRAKEIt
Henry Loomls Nelson writes In tho
current number of Harper's Weekly a
lengthy nnd highly interesting nrtlclo
on "Tho Next Speaker and tho Noxt
Session.' Nelson was, until recently,
edtor of Harper's Weekly, but since
tho control passed to tho hands of Mi
Clure, and the policy ot Hurper's pub
lication swung from tho nuigwumpinn
to n courso savoring of strong Repub
lican Americanism, ho has been placed
on tho special contributor list. Ills
articles on the President, Secretary
Root, political conditions In Ohio und
Kentucky, and his plea for the artil
lery arm of tho American servlco have
attracted wldo attention and havo
brought the general public to plnco a
higher estimate on tho man by reason
of his knowledge ot public men nnd af
fairs than It did upon his opinions ns
un anti-expansion writer.
Nelson, na a special writer, Is deal
ing with facts as given him by public
men, and ot Impressions gained from
their conversations, neferrlng to tho
personality of tho next Speaker ot tho
Houso. Nelson says: "Mr. Hender
son Is Scotch nnd full of nmiabillty.nnd
besides, his partisanship aside, he has a
strong und often nn Independent mind,
Ho has been brought up on hatred ot
Democrats, but ho is one ot that kind

political opponents than ho lives up

statesmen displayed u small degrco of
tho Henderson characteristics, tho bet
tor would bo their claim to dignified
political manhood. Such evidences of
broad minded character, however, can
hardly bo expected In circles where
childish and petty bigotry obtains.
Reviewing thu prospects of Con
gressional action at the next session,
Nelson deals extensively with the? now
possessions. He says:
'The President has said so often that
tho future relations of tho country to
v. hat he generally alludes to as out
'new possessions,' uio to be determined

HAWAII AND THE .MESSAGE.
Thu stntement from the Executive
center that Senator Culloin is making
nn effort to have the President deal
with Hawaii In his messago to tho
Fifty-sixth Congress should Impress
our citizens that Senator Cullom has
not lost his Interest In the people of
Hawaii, although ho is credited with
Olio thing is ccitnln. If the Presi
dent does not glvo Hawaii notice in his
message, It will bo one of tho most se
vere set-backs tho country lias yet re
ceived. Should tho words which tho
President devotes to Hawaii be lauda
tory, as they uro likely to be, It Is safe
to assumo that Hartwell nnd the Exe
cutive will claim that "Wo killed the
bear." If tho notlco Is not up to ex
pritntions, wo inny anticipate tho dl
lect lufereuco by local officials that
Cullom has small Influence or that bl
ind tho President have been made the
victims of base misrepresentation. Ac
cording In recent charges against Ked
cral officers and nubile men
In Washington, tho thought that
they posses average discriminating
common dense seems to bo be
yond the ken of thoso prompting tho
Exccutlw'B campaign In Washington.
Ho that as It may, tho chances nre
certainly In favor of Iluwall receiv
ing honorable mention in MeKlnley's
foithcomlng message. Tho President
Is known to be friendly toward ns anil
will do nil he can to further tho speedy
extension ot organized Tenltorlal
The Hullotln docs noi assume to
know the opinion of the President or
Senator Cullom, on thu details of our
"transition period." It. does bellevo
thut the President Senator Cullom, our
friends In Congress nnd ecry Federal
official will do tho utmost in their pow
er to further American Interests here
and will allow no perbounl opinions or
personal Interests to intercfero with
bringing- Hawaii speedily within the
sphere of liberal American territorial
rule where it belongs.
The people can depend upon it that
tho President and Congress will ap
proach tho Hawaiian subject on broad
American lines, with American inter
ests, ns viewed from tho Malnland.glven
the position of first Importance. Any
attempt on our part to obtain excep
tions granting special and unusual fa
vors will bo marked against us, by the
majority, us nn ovldenco of bad faith.
Hawaii must stand on tho same strong
patilotle platform ns tho President
Efforts on the pait of our officials to
establish a defenco of past errors by
making ehnrgcB of misrepresentation,
will bo worse than useless to them
nnd damaging to tho Interests of the
people. Tho acts, of these officials,
which thoy charge havo been misrepre
sented, uro nets of opon record. These
nets cannot bo misrepresented, will not
lie, havo not been Improperly Bet forth
by tho President, departmental officials
or tho so-called Opposition.
We may depend upon It that nolther
the President, departmental officials
nor Congressional friends will seek nn
opportunity to place Hawaii at a disad
vantage before the American public.
Every honest effort to Americanize Ha
waii will bo sure to recclvo cordial en
dorsement from Administration
