THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
'-Whatever deiogatory ciltlilsms
may bo passed upon President Mc
Klnloy's message will bo prompted by
party bias or a narrow disgruntled
.sentiment, resulting from tho feeling
that tho opinions Important to tho
minds of a few individuals should bo
len more Importance in their rela
tion to national affairs.
Tho nrcssago Is well written, straight
forward In sentiment and complete in
its treatment of tho Important ques
tions now in tho hand3 of tho repre
sentatives of tho American pooplo.
Tho President Is not and has nover
-cen proline In his assertions of what
Congress should do, yet In no lnstanco
does he retreat from tho responsibili
ties of tho chief executive office Ho
seeks to wor.c In unison with tho peo
ple and leaves to Congress tho ultimate
decision of detail which should bo left
to tho lcglslatlvo branch of tho Gov
ernment. In his referenco to Hawaii, President
McKlnley's remarks should not only
bo satisfactory to tho people hero, but
highly gratifying. Ha has recognized
tho anomalous conditions that exist
and called attention to difficulties In
detail. After reciting theso facts, at
tention Is called to tho Territorial Bill,
and the necessity of prompt It not im
mediate action by Congress to fur
nish relief which .shall put an end
lo tho conflicts of tho legal situation,
"What more could bo expected of tho
President In his capacity as an exe
cutive officer we have yet to learn. Had
tho referenco to Hawaii been written
by thoso local citizens honostly Inter
ested In tho genoral wolfare of our
people, It could not havo been moro
to the point or brought facts more
forcibly to tho attention of the legis
..ore who alone have tho authority to
change tho laws under which tho Is

and tho ndmlral and major general
commanding tho Department of tho
Pacific to assuro tho peoplo of the
beneficial Intentions of this Govern
ment havo had their legitimate effect
In convincing tho great mass of them
that, peace and safety and prosperity
and 'stable govcrnmcii tean only be
found In n loyal acceptanco of tho au
thority of tho United States.
Tho future government of tho Philip
pines lest s with tho Congress of tho
Tow grnver responsibilities havo
over been confided to us. If wo accept
them In n spirit worthy of our race
and our traditions, n great opportunity
conies with them. Tho islands Ho un
der tho shelter of our flag. They nro
ours by every title of law and equity.
Thej cannot bo abandoned, if wo de
sert them, wo leave them at onco to
anarchy and finally to barbarism. Wo
fling mem, n golden npplo of discord,
among tho rlvnl powers, no ono of
whlcn could permit nnother to scire
them unquestioned. Their rich plains
and vnllejs would ho tho sceno of end
less strlfo nnd bloodshed. The advent
of Dewey's fleet In Manila Bay, Instead
of being, as wo hope, tho dawn of
new days of freedom nnd progress, will
havo been the beginning of an era of
misery and violence worso than anv
which has daikcncd their unhappy
past. Tho suggestion has been mado
that wo could renounce our authority
over tho Islands, nnd, giving them In
dependence, could retain n protector
ate over them. This proposition will
not bo found, I am sure, worthy of
your serious attention. Such an ar
langcmcnt would Involve nt tho out
set a unci bronch of faith. It would
placo the peaceable and loynl majority,
who nBk nothing better than to nccept
our authority, at tho mercy of armaJ
Insuigents. It would make us io
sponslblo for tho nets of Insm gent
lenders and give us no power to con
trol them. It would charge us with
tho task of protecting them against
each other nnd defending them
ngalnst nny foreign power, with which
tney choso to quarrel. In short, It
would tnko from tho Congress of tho
United States tho power of declaring

It does not seem desirable that I
should recommend nt this tlmo a spo
clllc nnd final form of government for
theso islnuds. When peace shall bo
restored It will bo tho duty of Congress
to construct n plan of government
which shall establish and maintain
freedom, order nnd peace In tho Philip
pines, tho insurrection Is still exist
ing nnd when It terminates further In
formation will bo required as to tho
actual condition of affairs before In
augurating a permanent scheme of
civil government. Tho report of tho
commission, now In preparation, will
contain Information and suggestions
wnicn win ue of value to Congress, nnd
which I will transmit as soon as it Is
completed. As long as tho Insurrec
tion continues tho mllltnry arm must
neeessailly be supicmo. But there is
no reason why steps should not bo tak
en from tlmo to tlmo to Inaugurate
governments cssontlnlly popular In
their form ns fast as our territory Is
held or controlled by our troops.

Editor Evening Bulletin: In icply
to Mr. Frank Davey's letter which ap
peared In the Advertiser this morning,
I will say that It Is tiuo that wo hnvo
the best of health officers In Honolulu,
men of rnic medical talent and ability
and that they havo douo all In their
power to stamp out tho fntal disease.
As to tllfi nlintntrrnniilnir nt Infnu.ntl
districts and letting the globe trotters
j.uow iii.u wo navo pnotographed thoin,
I can only add that theso samo photo
graphs will vvtnk moro harm than they
would If they wcio not mado or ro
pioducul by tho newspapers which
rather magnify than diminish tho 10
ports o fsuch a mlsfortuno ns ours of
