The first paper to devote acres of
space nml lords of black typo In boom
ing Admiral Dowey for tho Presidency
was the New York World. Dowey has
stood It as long ns ho can. As usual
when tho occasion cuIIb for action.
Dewoy finishes his task with neatness
and despatch. In a recent Issue tho
World published tho' following signed
by Admiral fleorgo Dowey, U. S. Navy:
"I would not under any circumstan
ces consent to be a candidate for the
Presidency, and I should consider It nn
act of friendship If tho press would
treat this decision ns Blnccro nml final.
I wish they would now drop tho mat
ter. I feel that any further booming
of my name for tho Presidency tends
to mack mo ridiculous."
Having taken enre of the Presidential
boomers, Admiral Dowey Is now be
ginning to enjoy life for tho first tlmo
since he sailed Into New York harbor
on tho foggy Soptcmbei morn.
mr. smith's Instructions.
The statement comes from a usually
authoritative source that tho Planters
have instructed their Washington rep
resentative, W. O. Smith, that what Is
expected of him Is to "get a Territorial
government fo rliawnil, nnd throw all
exceptions Ideas overboard."
This platform, short nnd to the
point, Is tho one, nnd tho only ono that
will carry Hawaii safely through tho
Congressional woods and securo tho
orgnnlzed stability which our own In
terests nnd American Interests de
mand. Tho Bulletin sincerely hopes
that It has not been misinformed nnd
that Mr. Smltn's career during the Con
gressional period will bo marked by
strict adherence to tho text.
The net of annexation brought Hn
wali its much sought nntlonal stability,
but tho history of tho past year and a
half has shown that to place this now
possession on a proper and satisfac
tory basis, tho governmental stability
must he orgnnlzed nnd organized on
American principles. Whether thu
majority saw tho situation In this light
until they were threatened by tho ene
my, it Is not necessary to say. If they
did not, they cannot bo nccused of be
ing below tho average order of buBy
humanity. Tho best of men often find
the necessity of an object lesson forced
The most thoughtless citizen can now
see that an organized, thoroughly
American government Is quite ns Im
portant to tho moral, social, Industrial,
financial and political welfare of Ha
waii as was tho act of annexation
which brought tho Islands under tho
American flag. Tho centor towards
which all forces of Hawaii should bo
(llii-cted Is the enactment by Congress,
nt the earliest possible period In the
forthcoming session, of n territorial
law which shall extend to Hawaii,
American tariff laws, shipping laws,
labor laws, postal laws and every oth
er law on tho statute books that will
place tho Islands so far within tho
scope of btrlet American administra
tion that no Congress, so long as tliu
nation lasts, can put us aside or dis
criminate against us.
