FRIDAY. DECEMI1EII I. 1890.
If Hnwall docs not receive speedy
recognition from Congress It will not
bo Senator Cullom's fault.
As promoter of tho Hawaiian rail
road Herbert U. Gehr was n success,
und as tho forwarder of progressive
work ho Is a success. What more need
Hawaii ask of the newcomer?
Admiral Dewey has awakened to the
unpleasant realization that ho cannot
transfer to his wKe tho affection of the
American people, for onco ho has nl
lowcd love to run nwny with diplo
macy, and for the first time tho voice of
harsh criticism Is raised ngnlnst him.
Shortly after his marriage tho Admiral
transferred to his wife, the house pre
sented to him by tho American people.
And tho trouble has begun. Dewey's
picture hai been hlfsed and some of
tho contributors to tho fund want their
money back. Tho hero of Manila thus
discovers thnt being the servant of the
people Is not nil that It Is "cracked up
The result of tho deliberations of tho
Council was that n reprlovo was grant
ed Ihara, on tho grounds of our ques
tionable position under tho constitu
tion of tho United States. There was
not it dissenting vote given ngalnst
this nrtlon by any member of tho Coun
Tho principal fenturo of the nctlon of
the Council Is u demonstration that the
people of Hawaii believe that tho New
lands Ilesolutlon extended tho consti
tution of tho 1'nttcd States to Hawaii;
that they are ready to nccept all tho le
sponslbllltles, all tins changes which
the enforcement of thnt constitution
entails; that they will demand for tho
poorest citizen tho rights which the
constitution of tho United States com
mands shall be given.
Lots of Trouble
Over .Dewey's House
Ilrlg. Gen. runston has mado a pub
lic reply to tho charges mado against
him of desecrating Catholic churches
of tho Philippines. Tho letter closes
with this forceful lnuguagn:
There never was an officer or man by
tho name of Dalton In tho 20th Kansas
who went to tho Philippines, and nei
ther tho KnnsaB Regiment nor any de
tachment of It was ever In San Pedro
Macatl. Now, further. I havo put a
check of $1000 on tho Hank of Califor
nia In the hands of my aid, Lieut. 11. J.
Mitchell, -10th United Suites Volunteer
Infantry, now at the Occidental Hotel,
and I challcugo John J. Sullivan,
whichever ono of him It Is, tho editor
of Donahoe's Magazine, tho editor of
tho San Francisco Monitor, or any oth
er person who takes up this case, to
put up an equal amount, and 1 chal
lenge these people to prove by evidence
that would pass In any pollco court,
that I ever took, or connived nt the
tnklng of any article, sacred or other
wise, from any church In tho Philip
pines, or that iny wife ever received
fiom my huuds or from those of any
one else, anything taken from nny
church, tho Judges to bo threu Jewish
residents of San Francisco, to bo se
lected by Ilabbl Voorsanger, nnd money
forfeited by either party going to the
California Red Cross Society.
Unless this challcugo Is accepted In
forty-eight hours. I hereby brand tho
editor of Donahoe's Mngnzlno, tho edi

tills particular ono of tho cloven John
J. Sullivan's In San Francisco ns liars
anil blackguards of tho first water.
As Is usually tho case, Cenernl Funs
ton's remarks have no hidden meaning
that requires explanation.
Washington, Nov. 20. News that tho
transfer of tho gift liouso has been
made has excited a degree of indignant
feeling ngnlnst Admiral Dewey too
strong to pass unnoticed. When the
report was first published that tho Ad
miral Intended to transfer to his bride
the residence presented to him only n
fi-w weeks beforo thero wero murmurs
of dlssnt her, and considerable feeling
was manifested by persons who had
contributed to the fund.
Within the past few days letters hate
been received by members of tho Dow
ey homo fund committee from contrbu
lurs to tho fund demanding tho return
of coutilbutlotiH If tho transfer took
place. Many persons refused to be
llete tho report, maintaining tho Ad
miral could not, with decency, give a
liotibo away presented to him by tho
people of the 1'nlted States. Several
reasons for the Intention credited to
tno Admiral nnd now confirmed were
iidvnnced nnd generally discussed in
Washington, but few persons could un
derstand why tho transfer should be
mado to Mrs. Dewey, who has a con
siderable fortune of her own nnd nn
Income larger than the Admiral's salary.
With the announcement today of tho
actual otllclal transfer of tho gift
houso to Mrs. Dowcy tho threatened
storm of indignation has broken. To
night nt a blogrnph exhibition pictures
of McKluIcy, llrynn, Sampson nnd
Schley wero cheered, whllo n likeness
of Dewey was hissed.

upon receipt of hqwh of tho wreck for

The decision of the Council of State
In the lhara ease furnishes plenty of
political material for tho so-called Op
position In Hawaii, and small comfort
for the real Opposition. As tho Bulle
tin has previously stated, however,
the lhara case has no place In po
litical discussion ut tho present
time.- In calling upon tho
Council of Stnto to uphold tho con
stitutional decisions of tho courts nnd
commute Ilium's sentence wo believe
Mr. Dole was prompted by honest opin
ions and full confidence In tho wis
dom of our local judges.
Mr. Dolo recognized tho question
able character of Hawaii's position un
der tho constitution of tho United
StHtes, nnd then asked tho Council of
Stnto to' overrldo the findings of tho
jury to the extent of commuting tho
death pennlty to Imprisonment for life.
This was prucHcully a repetition of the
Iluttman enso In which tho Council
granted a pardon on tho grounds of
fered by tho government, of mistakes'
on the part of tho Jury.
Tho discussion by tho Council of
fltato wns short and to tho point. As
quoted by the Advertiser, Cecil Drown,
whoso legal ability no man In this
country will question, said if It wero
not for tho constitutional phase of tho
question ho would vote against a com
mutation. Ho believed tho constitu
tion of the Unltod States wns In force
here, and to hang lhara tho Govern
ment would he committing murder.
President Dolo expressed tho belief
that tho Council of Stato haa authority
to grant a reprlovo on constitutional

President Dole stntcd tho real pur

decided on on the grounds of uncertain

tno United States and some lnconslsten

that lhara had struck tho fatal blow,

Councilors itonertfion arm mown

Tho petition of W. II. Coulter for
pardon nnd the recommendation of
Marshal Brown that ho be shipped out
of the counrty, wero read. It wns then
moved by Councilor Kennedy that the
matter he laid on tho table on tho
ground that bad men should not bo
