THUUSDAY MA11CH 22, l'lOO.
It Is a long, cold day when the Ad
vertiser cant' manufacture a story that
put Minister Coopor In an unpleasant
light before tJo public.
The real estate writer for a contem
porary has mado tho discovery that
"money is plentiful" In Honolulu at
tho present Not so plentiful that the
people pick It up In tho streets.
A despatch to tho Washington Post,
setting forth tho sharp contest that 1
being waged In Alabama to displace
Senator Morgan, says, "Lowe replied
by calling Blackburn an etaoln ahrdlu
cmfwyp vbgkqj xzllflfffllfll:" No wonder
Senator Morgan's friend are having
Tho effort of Illinois prison authori
ties to reform tho women criminals
by giving them work In flower gar
dens Is an experiment that would find
an excellent field In these Islands. Tho
first necessity, however, will bo to es
tablish a homo for tho erring women
and girls who aro now cither allowed
to continue In their wayward paths or
forced Into prison with tho worst of
criminals. Tho Council of Stato has
tho power to establish such a home.
It is a far cry to find an endorsement
for local efforts warding off tho Con
stitution, In the statement by President
McKlnlcy that the constitution docs
not ncceasarlly follow the Hag. lly the
express terms of the Nowlands Resolu
tion the Constitution of tho United
States waa extended to Hawaii. Presi
dent McKlnley has stated In an Inter
view published before tho Porto Rlcan
question came up for Congressional ac
tion, that the country taken over by
treaty has a claim upon constitutional
rights not possessed by the conquered
Bishop and Mrs. Willis are to be
congratulated on tho success of their
effort In providing a homo for Incur
ables. With tho changing adralnlstrj
tlon of the English church likely to
cause tho assignment of tho DIshcp to
other fields, this Institution wilt oe a
fitting monument to his constant
thoughtfulncss for the poor and needy.
Still better would be bis continued
residence In tho country whore he
would be able to carry on tho xood
work to Its completion a well equip
ped and liberally endowed home.
Tho Bulletin congratulates President
Dole on his final recognition that ho
has a superior ofllccr In tho person of
tho President of tho United States. Mr.
Dole has previously assumed tho ap
pointment of local officials with buch a
tree and easy authorltatlvo hand, that
tho prompt rcferenco of tho appoint
ment of a Chief Justice, to the proper
authority Is refreshing. Mr. Dole fell
down when It came to stating the situ
ation In positive straightforward lan
guage, but as this Is tho usual method
of our Chief Executive It Is hardly
necessary to comment on an old
A proclamation by tho President of
the Republic of Hawaii, an officer un
known In International circles since
August 12, 1898, prohibiting the Impor
tation of goods from a foreign coun
try. This Is ono of tho Interesting
situations of the Hawaiian opera
bouffe which attracts present atten
tion In this corner of tho American
stage. It may bo remembered that
tho President of tho Republic of Ha
waii had a similar proclamation diaft-
od when tho Nippon Maru appeared
off port with a supposed plaguo casn
on board, but It was not trotted oui
for contemplation by tho public. It
now remains to be seen whether any
officer of a defunct sovereignty can by
a personal proclamation and without
consulting with superior officers, put
a stop to foreign commcrco In nny part
of the United States. The president
of the Republic of Hawaii has pranced
onto tho stage In all the glory and offi
cial trappings of former years. The
opinion of the people Is that the Re
public of Hawaii officials are In much
tho same Impossible situation that ihey
were when registering foreign ships.
It Is to bo hoped that the President of
the Republic will not disappear
through a hole In tho stage created by
AlaiomatU claU la Washington.
Tliu attempt to question tho con
stitutionality of the Council of 3tutc
proceedings Is far fetched and pon
derous, capable only of Inspiring dis
trust and delaying tho progress of the
Islands. As against tho directions and
suggestions of tho President of tho
United States, tho Republic of Hawaii
has no constitution. Tho old consti
tutional framework Is merely main
tained to give sufficient form to the
government structuro to cnablo con
tinuation of business. Tho President
has authorized the Council of State to
act as a legislative body to provide
funds for proper administration of va
rious departments and tho continu
ance of general public work to meet
thu demands of the country. That
settles It so far as the constitution of
tho Republic of Hawaii Is concerned.
There Is not a single Item In the spe
cial appropriation bill, the Immediate
necessity of which can be disputed.
The principal criticism to be offered is
that tho Executive Council is apparent
ly afraid of Its shadow and quails be
fore the responsibility of carrying out I
tho principle of progross throughout!
all tho Islands. Acts passed by the
Council bearing tho endorsement of
tho President of the United States can
not bo successfully attacked or set
aside by any legislative body that may
bo organized in these Islands, whether
we are given a territorial government
or contlnuo aa at present under the
direction of tho President.
Tho authority of tho Council of
Stato traces directly to tho Nowlands
Resolution and thus to tho Congress
of tho United States. To attempt to
place tho power of tho constitution of a
defunct Republic above, this authority
Is nonsensical In the first placo, It it
doeu not also evidence the assumption
to resurrect defunct Importance. In a
manner entirely unwarranted.
MR, DOLE ON THE STAND
President Dole Is on tho wit
ness stand this afternoon. To
Mr. Ocar he answered that he
considered the Chief Justlco's
resignation should take effect
upon appointment of successor.
President McKlnley had not
answered his letter on tho sub- .
Justice Whiting opened tho Supreme
Court this morning and adjourned It
until 1:30 p. in., announcing to mem
bers of the bar present that they need
not attend then unless notlflni.
The Inference Is that there Is ft
prospect of tho Court's giving a de
cision on ths iiuc.Uio.i of Its own le
gality as constituted at tho hour thus

Bush vs. Republic, against the legality
of the Court, yea ten lay afternoon. A
strong hint from the Court that tho
Government ought to put up a aefense
to tho caso proved unavailing. Attor

no advance on the position assumed by
him In tho morning, viz., that his de
partment was satlsilcd with tho com
position of the Court.

otten the price that governs the purchaser,
and not the quality or the substantial
makes. This theory seems to be based" on
the Idea that any kind of a suit is good
enough fur a huv, as he will soon wear it
out. That Is not good economy, for If you
would lay a little more, and consider qual
