Tlio most cheerful C'hrlotnins greet
lug to tlio business community Is the
announcement Hint tlio treasury sur
plus will bo put Into circulation.
Minister Young, nt n recent meeting
of the Uoard of Health, suggested that
the. Hoard bo given $200,000 to carry on
tho woik of reclaiming Chinatown.
This Is tho rrmnrlc of n business man
who known tho valuo of n dollar and
also knows tho usclcssncss of half do
ing n thing for want of necessary
funds. If George Cnitei us commis
sioner keeps up tho p.ico ho set as In
spector, and Mr. Illpley and Mr. Ed
wards uphold their reputation for
careful and thorough work, tho $200,
000 will bo needed to put Chinatown In
proper sanitary and structural condi
tion. One of the first places to bo con
demned nro tho shacks that line Nnu
nnu street from tho I'erry block to
Queen Emma hnll. Now that tho Im
provement sentiment hns full swing
the work should bo thorough and
money and power should bo dealt out
with as liberal n hand n iho law al
lows. HAWAII 1IEPOHE CONGIIESS.
To the. people of Hawaii who nro
honest In tlio hope of these Islands
coming, at no distant day, within the
circle of American territorial govern
ment, Special Agent Ilnrtwoll's letter
to his cmplojcr, Mr. Dole, Is decidedly
rcacsurlng. Hurtwcll bilngs up the old
sugar trust bugbear to show, o sup
poue, that tho tenihlo odds ii(,'alnst
which ho Is struggling nro ci rated
solely by certain American financial
IntcnstH. Unit well has been known
to do this before In the days of tho
reclpioclty struggle. Wo have yet to
be convinced, howcer, that tho sugar
trust controls any considerable port
Hon of tho United Stntcs Congress or
that It can forco a delay In tho con
sideration of Hawaii when the meas
ures of broad national Importnnco have
Hartwell Is n natural pessimist any
way, but In going over his review wo
find that opposition Is promised those
portions of tho Hawaiian bill for which
tho majority of Hawaii's people have
sought Congressional opposition. Wo
bellovo also that the American mem
bers of tho Commission wilt bu found
ready to grant tho demands of what
Hartwell terms opposition of politi
cians. Ono of the flrtt matters referred to is
our public land laws. Hawaii will not
wcop over tho loss of tho present land
laws of the "Republic." Next, ho
says tho proposition of giving Supremo
Court Judges ilfo tenure of'olllco Is put
down by tho "politicians" as "un
Amcrlcan." It is un-Amqrlcnu and ..
Hawaii's best Interests nro considered,
It Is to bo sincerely hoped that the
men Hnrtwell dubs politicians consti
tute an overwhelming majority.
Again, "great opposition will bo
mndo" to property qualifications of
voters for Sonntois. This Is good news
for Hawaii blnco tho hopo of tho pcoplo
Is that this great opposition will de
velop greater opposition to tho extent
of wiping out nil property qualifica
tions for voters.
Taking tho report by and largo Hart
well has discovered that tho cherished
theories of local officials for "holding
down" tlio pcoplo and strengthening
ofllclal power aro likely to go "up tho
spout" and disappear into thin air
early in tho Hawaiian discussion. Fur
thermore it shows that very little op
position will bo offered tho territorial
bill after the un-Amorlcan features
proposed by local officials have been
eliminated. If tno local Executive
can, for once, forego selfish interests
in behalf of tho general welfaro of tho
peoplo of Hawaii, Mr. Dole will very
promptly Instruct his personal repre
sentative to withhold from the advo
cacy of those portions of tho bill which
American Senators and Representa
tives will forcibly oppose When Con
gressmen of tho United States, Irres
pective of party, placo tho "un-American"
stamp upon a detail or dotalls of
territorial law It will bo useless for
Mr. Dolo to inaugurate a campaign of
education, particularly when repre
sented by a man with Hartwcll's re
markable record for "Americanism."
It Is npparent that tho course of a
thoroughly American territorial bill
Is comparatively cicnr, and the only
real danger Is tho opposition that may
be offered by tho local Executive's de
mand for tho fulfilment of Its desire
for special exceptions. If the Congress
of thq United States considers Hawaii
worthy of an American government
theso exceptions urged into tho bill by
Mr. Dole, President of the Republic,
and Mr. Frear, of tho Supromo bench,
will never bo sjrantod. Continued con
tention for these specialties will bo
favoraole only to tho continuation of
tho present chaos and assistance to
Hnrlwciis sugar trust bugbear. Tho
tlmo hna como for the local Executive
to read its tltlo clear, though such an
unpleasant task does lnterfcro with Its
personal Interests or whims.
Tho proposed for speedy legislation
for Hnwall Is good, provided local
solons do not Interpret "speedy legis
lation" to mean placing Hawaii first on
tho list of national questions. Hnwall
will bo lucky If its terrltoilal bill Is
passed before the last of M.iy or tho
first of June next. Mntters of nation
al domestic Importance must neccs
sarlly tako precedence over our own
provincial alTalM. In th&hnndn of mo
Committee on Foreign Relations, how
uor, our territorial bill Is In tho con
trol of friends who will1 loso no op
porunlty to place It beforo tho Senate
at thu earliest possible day. Mean
while the real opposition In Hawaii
will have tlmo to withdraw from Its
present position and Join the ranks of
those who seek for Hawaii a thorough
ly American form of territorial government.
