Tho Kxecutlvo Council hnvo 10
Ito.itcdly Bought to Bhlft tho rmponnl
tilllty of the Kxecutlvj inl-i creating
and tlpflnlm; tho poxwrs of tho Court of
Claims, and tho legal appolntmcut
made under It. upon fh Kedurol au
thorities In Wellington. Tho respoiwl
hlllty of the local offlccrK to President
MoKlnloy has been s-t foith exten
Hlvely by tho Mlnlittcra at tho Council
of State sessions and again ny Mr.
Mott-Smlth In today's Interview.
It Ifl suggestive that thin responsi
bility which lias never been a serious
burden on the minds of these ofllcliils
should now give them much concern.
Tho fact of tho matter Is, they have
cast about for a defenso against an en
raged public, whoso representatives In
the Council of State have brought the
Hawaiian Kxecutlvo face to face with
nn accountability It cannot evade.
'Consideration should bo had for
him" (President McKinley plaided Mr.
Mott-Smlth. And the consideration giv
en him Is to Invoke his nanm In de
fence of the most unpopular action In
tho whole career of the notoriously re
pudiated and discredited Hawaiian
Kxecutlvo. This Is tho consideration
shown by this Kxecutlvo to our Presi
dent to whose generosity and tolera
tion It owes Its continuance In ofllce
long after It has lost 'iver WHtlgo. of
Whero does tho real responsibility
utd an bhowu by the iccoril?
riio Court of Claims Is the child of
the Hawaiian Kxecutlvo and no ono
dot'. It was this Kxecutlvo in Ps
eaRemeM to appear as a custodian or
public Interest!, that conceived tho
Idea that originated tho Court. It waa
this Kxecutlvo that sent necessary In-
structlons to Its polltlcul agent In
Washington. It Is supposed that It
made Its meaning clear as to what sort
of a court wns wanted. Anl tin Kxecu
tlvo"B own agent, acting on Its Instruc
tions, wrote tho telegram in reply to
which Secretary Hay attached Uls slgna
turo, being tho only part he hud In It.
Havo wo not tho testimony of Arm
strong, secretary to tho agent anl
Cocoanut Club dolegate, In his letter
designed to Impress the Hawaiian pub
lic, through tho morning organ, with
tho confidence, placed In the official
lobby by Washington authorities?
The answer was according to Arm
strong practically theso words, "Sub
mit whatever despatch you wish." And
un havo the Agent's and official and
and unuluclal delegate's words on this
point In his letter to Mott-Smlth pub
lished in tho morning organ March
'Attorney Genera! Orlggs desired
also, and I presumo It Is it good po
litical coun.0 to avoid tnklug any un
necessary action on any Hawaiian mat
ters pending tho enactment of tlio-lla-wallan
bill, and each of the telegrams,
tho first authorizing, us you remember,
appropriations to eradicate tho plaguo
and Intended to lncludo thu nitration
plant, tho necoud telegram authoriz
ing tlvo commissioners to be appointed
to assess damages for tho burning of
Chinatown, and tho third, of last Tues
day, expressing tuo President's vlows
against calling tho old Legislature and
his expectation that tho Council of
State would do what was requisite for
appropriations until tho bill should
take effect theso weio prepared to
meet tho conditions nbove mentioned
and 1 wrote them nil."
It waa evident to everybody who has
watched Hurtw ell's proceedings in
Washington that ho has become a
boro to tho Attorney General and Sec
retary of State, und that so fur from
being nn ovldenco or confidence In him
It wna In fact merely a pollto way of
getting rid of him.
I) ut this does not relieve tin) Hawa
iian Kxecutlvo from tho rcrponsiblllty
In question. Acting on tho Interpre
tation of tho authority received on the
representation of his chosen agent
which may be assumed to bo also that
of tho agent himself Mr. nolo wrote
his Kxecutlvo order creating the
Court and appointing tho Judges. 13c
foro tho storm of Indignation aroused,
tho Hawaiian Kxecutlvo refuses to bow,
but takes cowardly refugo behind
Instructions which It snys It framed
and which It Interprets as IT choso to
do. In its light regard for loyalty and
truth, it counts for nothing that the
evident evasion Is to bring condemna
tion upon tho President and Cabinet of
tho United States.
Dut little else could bo expected from
nn Kxecutlvo who with full knowledgo
of tho facts deliberately choso as Its
trusted agent In Washington a man
who sought so recently by ovory means
within his power to betray both tho
United States and all tho American
iisplmtloua of Hawaii.

President Walker reaJ the letterwf Presi
dent Dole In answer to the resolution of
the Chamber on the question or tne ioun
of Claims, adopted at a special meetliiR
held recently. 'I his letter was placed on
file. , , ,
C. Bolte stated that there existed an
evident difference of opinion on the ques
tion of the Court of CUIms between the
Executive Council and the community at
larpe. The Chamber of Commerce feels
that there Is no question as to the matter
of payment of claims but the Exe.utlve
Council thinks otherwise.
Just here Mr. Bolte Introduced a reso
lution embodvlnc the authorization of
President McKlnlev to President Dole for
the appointment of the Court of Claims
and elven the Interpretation of the
Chamber of Commerce.
J. B. Atherton stated that he did m t
know how far It was wise for the Cham
ber of Ccmm rce to ro In the matter. H
had spoken with some of the representa
tive attorney? In to- an h .1 ' d h
the awardlnR of claims was doubtful
that there Is law which prot-cts the Gov
ernment when property is destroyed as a
health measure. Evidently the Executive
Council was of the same mind. Mr.
Atheiton said he would hardly like to see
the Chamber array Itself aRalnst the leRal
knowl-dpe of the country. It would
place that body in a bad llfiht.
C. Bolte said he had not touched on
leRal grounds. It was simply desired to
Inform the Government of the light In
which the Chamber looks at the matter.
Messrs. Lowrey, Walker and Macfar
Izne spoke iicalnst any further action on
the part o' tlie Chamber and iheitMim
tlon was finally laid in the table.

THINGS o the new year. Never In the
history of neckwear Iras there been so
manv varieties made of the verv choicest
silks. Pattern designs are characteristics
of these new makes. String Ties, Puffs,
Scarfs, Four-in-Hands, English Squares
and many other of the latest patterns are
to be found In our stock. A fine article of
neckwear has become a necessity to him
who would be well dressed. No part of
his dress Is more conspicuous, and when
the best can be bought for what Inferior
goods COST, NO ONE SHOULD PASS
BY THE BARGAINS WE ARE NOW
The New Yeoi Begets
F( iR THE BOYS. Have you ever stop
pej to think what a difference there is In
th. makes of boys' clothing ? Many suits
ars bought because the price Is low. It is
ohen the price that governs the purchaser,
ai.J not the quality or the substantial
nakes. This theory seems to be based on
tl.e Idea that any kind of a suit Is good
ei.ough for a boy, as he will soon wear It
ot. That Is not good economy, for If you
v. ould pay a little more, and consider qual
f y and make, you would have a suit for
tne boy that would always look well and
ojtwear two suits of the Inferior grades.
i c 'iiiv the best Is money In pocket: to
t-M 'he poorest Is moaey wasted. We
