however, In tho cleaning up of China

which 'was followed by u fresh, appear

peat itself In this Instance. Until as
sured that It will not, to withhold cri
ticism would seem tho bettor part of
valor. When tho scaro or tho plague
has passed everybody can throw up
their hats and either crltlclso or ap

opinion. At tho present time it Is to be

UROADER NATIONAL CHAR
ACTER. From local comments made upon
tho President's reference to Hawaii In
his message, the Inference Is easily
drawn Hint somo of our good people
anticipated a wholesale endorsement
of "tiniisltlon period" conditions, ac
companied by orders that Congress
Immediately proceed to arrange mat
ters here according to tho directions of
Delegate Hartwell and his compatriots.
Having failed to do this tho Presi
dent's words aro characterized as "not
explicit'- nnd ''not as comprehensive
as wo could wish."
It would bo well for the people of
theso Islands to remember that the
President Is dealing with Hawaii from
a bioad American standpoint, at tho
samo tlmo showing marked considera
tion for the unfoituuato local situa
tion that has arisen through unfore
seen and conflicting conditions which
Congress alono can alleviate. A Pres
ident's message Is not supposed to be
a stump speech or a political treatise,
notwithstanding 'tho apparent hopo
tnat Mr. McKlnfey would deviate' from
tho usual dignified course when ho
came to Hawaii's affairs.
Thoso dissatisfied with tho reference
to Hawaii should again read that por
tion of tho messago In which Mr. Mc
Kinlcy says the provisions of tho an
nexation resolution continuing In
force municipal laws not Inconsistent
with tho resolution, not contrary to
the existing treaties of tho United
States nor contrary to the constitution.
"Do not touch nny subjects of lm
portanco which nro of n broadly na
tional character." If our contempor
aries were able or willing to vlow tho
situation from tho, vantage point of
broader national character wo bellevo
they would moro readily appreclato tho
efforts of the President In Hawaii's be
half. Tho statement, "tho peoplo of
theso Islands nro entitled to tho bene
fits nnd privileges of our legislation,"
would seem sufficiently explicit nnd
compiobenslvo when followed by tho
equally positive assertion. It Is mani
foldly Important, therefore, that an
act shall bo passed as speedily as pos
sible erecting theso Islands Into a Ju
dicial district nnd that tho
government of this newly acquired
territory under tho Federal constitu
tion shall bo fully defined and pro
Is there nny problem of the "transi
.on period" more Important than a
clear definition of tho Hawaiian gov
ernment's position under tho Federal
Tho President has touched upon the
sourci of nil tho difficulties that have
arisen under, present conditions and Is
direct nnd positive In his suggestions
to tho legislative branch of tho United
States Government. Ho Is not quick
to assume paramount authority nor Is
ho bombastic In defense of local offi
cial action and condemnation of Con
gress for failure to act. If, as seems
to bo tho ense, the latter was hoped
for by thoso now expressing dissatis
faction, It would suggest that thcro
still remains n local lack of desire or
capacity to treat Hawaiian questions In
tho light of the "broader national
chaiactcr" upon which the peoplo of
Hawaii have entered.
