Though the nation mourns tho death
of Vice-President Hobart, tho flag on
tho Exccutlvo building has been flying
nt tho peak. Why this oversight.
Hot Trail Agglo continues on his
active to-thc-rcar march. His principal
sourco of comfort Is reading Atkinson's,
pnmphletH and his own proclamations.
It is to bo hoped that tho President's
message will speak favorably of the ad
ministration of Hawaii. The situation
calls for a bracer from every possible

There Is no question of tho high c
tccm In which tho Boston Lyric Opera
Company Is held. Theio Is no dis
counting the fact, however, that tho
flno work of Advnuco Agent Nark In son
was tm Important factor in placing tho
capabilities of tho company before the
people previous to Col. Thompson's ar
rival. Tho bloody work of tho Boer war has
but commenced. It may bo true, as
stated In London dispatches, that tho tho chargo that Washington officials
burghers havo becomo tired of the fight-, had been misled by tho mlsrepresenta
ins consequent to tho Boer Invasion of tlons of falsifiers ,"two-blt politicians

Frco Stato they can not reckon on In

ers will fight to defend their homes
with a courage and tenacity that will
put their previous destructive powers
in the column of child's play .
Our people, are prepared to bo satisfied
with whatever tho President says of
Hawaii in his message. Whether he
devotes largo or small spaco to our
Interests, suggests radical or conserva
tive changes from present conditions,
It 1b not necessary to attempt to fore
cast. Wo believe McKlnley wilt glvo
Hawaii all tho promlnenco due It as
ono of tho nation's problems, nnd will
mako such suggestions as make for tuo
progress of American Interests and
speedy acceptance of American prin
ciples. Tho results attending tho voyage of
tho animal transports Port Stephens
and Garonne as compared with that
of tho Victoria, bring forcibly to tho
attention of the authorities and tho
people tho advantages of the Honolulu
route to tho Philippines. The Victo
ria held strictly to her northern courso
an directed and lost practically all her
valuable cargo of horses. Tho experi
ence of tho Victoria speaks well for the
good judgment of tho offlcers who
changed their courso to this port, and
also shows that tho routo by way of
Honolulu Is the courso of least resist
ance in figuring on the destruction
wrought by the elements.
AN EXPLICIT LESSON.
After perusing tho explicit lesson
In American government read to them
by 'Attorney General Griggs In his fur
ther explanation of the Exccutlvo land
order, It is to bo hoped the Dolo gov
ernment will bo ablo to guide tho re
mainder of Its official courso with rea
sonable respect for American nuthorlty.
Tho reply mado to tho leading lights
of the Dolo government demonstrates
not only tho utter fallacy of their con
tentions, and tho unfortunate, character
of tho mission with which they burden
ed their willing ngont already over
loaded with war records. When coup
led with tho public remarks of our offi
cials in connection with tho land or
der, tho criticism passed upon tho
President and his secretaries by their
accepted nowspaper mouthpieces, this
plain statement of tho President,
through tho Attorney General, brings
Into bold rolief tho Incapacity of the
Dolo government to properly adminis
ter the affairs of Hawaii on tho lines
laid down by tho American people, and
its failure to realize that upon tho
enactment of tho Newlands resolution
all independent acts of sovereignty on
tho part of tho Hawaiian government
should have ceased. One of tho most
pertinent paragraphs of tho Attorney
General's reply the paragraph which
appeals to Amorlcans who havo closely
watched the local manipulations of tho
"transition period" Is that In wlilch
"I cannot but tliluk that the repre
sentative) of tho Hawaiian government
lias failed to appreciate tho fact that
tho Hawaiian Republic, as a separato
power, ceased to exist when the resolu
tion of annexation took effect. It ex
isted as an organized government only
for tho purposo of municipal legisla
tion within tho well ncccpted meaning
of that phrase and for such special
purposes besides as wcro expressed In
tho resolution, the sale and disposition
of tho public lands not being of tho lat
The so-called "Instructions," contain
ed In tho Secretary of State's telegram
of August C, 189S, wcio the uasls of the
nssumed authority of the Dole govern
ment to barter and sell Hawaii's public
lands. These "Instructions" wcro also
tho rock on which tho government with
Its superior knowledge of diplomatic
wording and departmental customs,
based Its published defenso nnd public
criticism of Washington authority.
Tho legal nuthorlty of tho Federal
government, to which a halting nnd
readily abandoned loyalty was paid,
disposes of tho subject In these words:
It will bo observed that, taken by
itself, this rcsponso to tho question of
tho Hawaiian government docs nothing
more than rcclto two unquestioned pro
visions of the resolution, neither of
which In my judgment was pertinent to
tho question or decision of It."
Tho good faith of tho Dolo govern
ment is not questioned. That the ofll
clals should have accepted this recita
tion of tho provisions of tho resolution
as "Instructions" suggests Its own ar
guments as to their legal and "diplo
Tho "Agent of tho Hawaiian Gov
ernment" had tho Held to himself In
presenting the opinions of his local
compatriots. He had amplo opportunity
to provo tho secretaries Ignorant of tho
"lines wo havo been running on hero,"
ho was not prevented from pressing
whatsoever were placed in his path
way to prevent n completo exposition
of tho opinions of officials ho repre
sented. And what is tho reply of the Wash
ington Government? It Is practically
the tamo statement purpoited to have
been mado by Senator Cullom to W. O.
Smith .while standing on tho deck of
the Ktnau, "You people don't seem to
renllzc that you'vo been annexed."
The Ignominy of tho defeat suffered
by the Dolo government Is found not
In the wording of the Attorney Gen
eral's opinion which is n straightfor
ward, dignified addition to our histor
ical literature but in tho fact that tho
Hnwatlan Government by Its jpetty,
childish Ignornnco or thirst for power
should havo forced tho Washington au
thorities to lay down theso precepts of
American government, forced them to
establish the fact that Hawaii Is an
nexed nnd tho nets of its local officers
are subject to tho sovereign power of
the United States nnd to the direction
of tho Executive nnd legislative bran
ches of the American Government.
The difficulties of the situation are
of the local government's own
making. That theso difficulties havo
been created, that disparaging com
ments should hnvo been mado from
official sources, tho whole tenor and
method of the campaign to upset tho
rulings of tho Washington Exccutlvo,
nil serve to accurately point out tho
sourco and center of tho renl Opposi
tion in Hawaii, and tho motives which
prompt this Opposition.
We do not bellovo that ono word of
tho Attorney General's opinion was ut
tered with tho Intent of placing the
Dolo government in the ridiculous posi
tion which it now necessarily occupies
beforo tho public. By vlrtuo of Its own
acts does tho Dolo government occupy
such n position. It has met tho fall It
has been riding for since Aug. 12, 1898,
and tho most unfortunato feature about
tho affair Is that tho "transition per
iod" policy of our officials Is more than
likely to exert a damaging influencn up
on Hawaii's interests whlcn are about
to receive the serious consideration of
The Attorney Oeneral's .cmurkj up
on tho return of money to purchasers
shows that ho is not stubborn, as
charged by local governmental con
temporaries, and that Washington au
thorities ask the performance of no Im
possibilities. Speaking of lands under
conditional agreements or under lease,
the Attorney General says: "Undoubt
edly tho Government of tho United
States can ho trusted to do Justiro to
all persons having Just clnlmii of this
How much happier would Hawaii's
position beforo Congress 1)9 had tho
Dole government based its action on
tho expression, by word nnd deod, of
confldenco in tho Justice of the Ameri
can nation and confldenco in the ability
of tho nation's Executive.
