The principal featuro of the plague

If there 1b any visiting American
citizen moro deeply Interested from a
business standpoint than Hon. Arthur
Sowall In the extension of American
laws to Hawaii, ho 1ms yet to become
generally known. Mr. Sowall's long, hue
cessful public career has not been such
as to causo him to view opposition
with lndlHerenco or fall to appreciate
Its strength, and he speaks as a
bulsncss roan who has been n leading
factor In many Congressional battles
and bos gained experience from Intl-
mate association with leaders In poll-
tics and business. Shut off from com
munication with the outside world,
Hawaii has a tendency to jump at con
clusions, stampede at the suggestion
of opposition and forget to placo con
fidence In Its Congressional friends.
Y'o commend Mr. Srwnll's remarks to
those citizens who seem to bo losing
confidence In the good Intentions and
powerful Influence of tho Congress
men who support the liberal American
policy toward Hawaii.
A Washington correspondent of n
Wyoming paper draws attention to tho
fact that there arc two Chirks In tho
United Suites Senate, Clark of Wyom
ing and Clark of Montana. Tho latter
Is a Democrat and has nn Income of $20
a minute, the former n Kepubllcnn
with little on band except his salary.
Hut what Clark of Wyoming "lacks
In finance he makes up In popularity,
for there Is no better liked man in the
United States Senate." We have no
doubt Montana Clark is all right, but
Hawaii has found that it can tie to
Wyoming Clark and wouldn't swap
his Influence favornblc to Hawaii, for
an Income of $100 a minute. If we could
gut both, so much the better,
"It Is perhaps natural for him to
emphasize perils," remarks a contem
porary In reference to llnrtwcll's du
bious reports. Perhaps, Indeed. Has
ilartwell e'ver been known to do any
thing but emphasize perils when en
gaged In any public work. He has em
phasized the peril of every revolution
that over occurred In the country and
It was Ilartwell who forgot every pa
triotic duty .to his nation In empha
sizing the peril to Hawaii of the Span
ish licet In Manila bay. Tho public
may rest assured, however, that tho
peril of drafts on tho Diplomatic
and Consular appropriation will not be
ALL IS NOT LOST.
The editorial utterances from tho
New York Press published In another
column are further evidence that nil
tho Unofficial delegate and Special
Agent Ilartwell needed, In order to ob
tain material for his dubious reports,
was to refer to current literature, Tho
fine Italian hand of Oxunrd and tho
Sugar Trust people can bo seen In
this. Just as it Is apparent In the Amer
ican Agrlcuturlst and kindred papers
controlcd by Herbert Myrlck of Spring
field, Mass. Hut theso forces have al
ways been at work within the Republi
can party. They opposed the Hawa
iian reciprocity treaty nnd were never
successful, though they gave Ilartwell
In years gone by the same sad mo
ments nnd caused him to write the
same dubious letters, when, us a mat
ter of fact, tho friends of Hawaii had
tho situation well in hand.
Tho same men who protected our
reciprocity treaty year after year are
still in the saddle and they have not
lost any of their Influence In tho de
liberations of Congress. It Is n notable
fact that the New York Press does not
Include Hawaii in lis list of new pos
sessions which should not bo granted
freedom of commercial rights under
the constitution and laws of the United
States. In Its commerce and politics
Hawaii cannot bo and will not bo held
to occupy the same position as tho for
mer Spanibli possessions. Tho only
Stumbling blocks tlmt may eomo In our
pathway to defeat tho efforts of Con
gressional friends is tho local attltudo
during tho transition period.
If we mlstnko not, ilartwell himself
was one of tho legal factors In tho de
feating Influence of American shipping
laws by naturalizing foreign ships.
Others prominent in thu counsels of
the local government played Import
ant parts in standing oft tho American
