A. 8. Hartwoll, W. O. bmlth and W. N.
Armstrong, now acttvo turmbcrii of
Mr. Dole's lobby in Washington.
Webster Davis returning from an ex
tended tour of the Door republics Bays
that he does not find the Doers as bad
as they havo been pictured, also ho
doeit not believe tho British troops will
ever enter Pretoria. Davis may not be
unbiased. Ho certainly Is not a military
apert. At the same time lato reports
from the Drltlsh fighting front Indi
cate that tho advance on Pretoria 1h
sot being made at a gallop.
As Mr. Dole contemplates the chill
ing reception accorded his appoint
ments to tho Court of Claims, his mind
must be In similar condition to that of
a man who was to make tho address
of the evening at a club dinner. As
tho upeaker arose, It was uotlccd he
was greatly embarrassed; after at
tempting uevcral times to rpeak, he
llnally munaged to say: "aeiillcniPn
heforo I came hero I hnd carefully
prepared a speech which I thought
eminently suitable to this occasion;
Its subject matter was know only to
Cod and myself; now, my friends, only
President McKluley will doubtless be
highly elated with the attempt or the
local Executive to saddle upon htm
tho responsibility for tho Court of
Claims. This effort to hldo behind the
President was not only brought out by
the Cabinet Ministers before tho Coun
cil of Stato, but was again voiced by
Mr. Mott-Smlth's remark, "Are they
aliened with the Court otClalms that
President UcKlnley has formed? If
they are not, then the Executlvo Coun
cil cannot go beyond what President
McKtnley has ordered."
As has already been stated by this
paper, as Is universally recognized by
the people of tneso Islands, the Execu
tlvo Council Is alone responsible for
the Court of Claims. Tho authority
given by the President was simply a
friendly acquiescence to the request of
the local Executive, and the present
attltudo of the Executlvo Is nothing
more or less than a cowardly effort to
shield Itself, by throwing the burden of
Its incompetence upon the Republican
Federal Administration. If as charged
by tho Executive, P. C. Jones and thn
Council of Stato aro Inconsistent In
their criticism, they havo certainly not
received u lesson in consistent and pa
triotic action from tho Executlvo Coun
cil of Hawaii.
Tho resolution offered by Mr. Uolte
and passed by the Council of State no.
only fulfills tho requirements as cs
tabllshcd by tho common sense, judg
ment of tho business community. It It
also consistent with tho so-called "In
structions" of Secretary Hay and th
tenor of tho correspondence with
Washington regarding tho Court. That
tho Executlvo has changed Its opinion
during tho two mouths taken for de
liberation after tho instructions wcro
received cannot alter tho facts of tho
Turning to tho text of Secretary Hay't
letter, which tho political agent Hart
well says he wrote nnd which in con
scqucuco must havo then fulfilled tin.
desires of tho Executlvo, It appears
that tlio President approves Mr. Dolo'n
request for tho appointment of "flvo
commissioners." Tho object for which
theso commlssloncis nro appointed Is
"to tako evidence of losses caused by
tho burning of Chinatown In Honolulu
and to muku awards or judgments on
such losses." That certain liability is
accepted for damage done by tho Hoard
of Health flres is evidenced by the au
thority given tho Council of Stato to
pay tho awards "out of appropriation
mado by tho Council of Stato in con
formity with Hawaiian laws." Tho
whole tenor of this despatch and Hart
well's letter to Minister Mott-Smlth
dated March 10 Indicates that the
words "in conformity with Hawaiian
laws" has direct referenco to tho legis
lative authority delegated tho Coun
cil of Stato by the constitution of tho
Republic to upproprluto funds for
"emergencies of war, Invasion, rebel
lion, pestllcnco or other great public
While the Executlvo Council "ad
Aits no liability," It must accept the
Justice nf the claim of rltluns whoxe
property 1ms been desltoycd through
no fault of their own. No civilized
community linn tho right to paupeiUe
Its merchants by acts committed "for
tho public good" and coolly refuse re
lief to tho sufferers. Ecry resident
and property holder except those
maintaining places unlit for human
habitation have a Just claim upon tho
government Tho taxpayers recognize
the Justice of tho claim and took to
the Court created by the Hawaiian
Executive to adjust these claims and
glvo common justice to tho claimants.
That common Justice shall bo done, It
Ib manifestly mandatory that a major
ity of the men appointed to the Court
shall be acquainted with the values of
property and merchandise." This re
quirement tho present Court docs not
fulfill. Wo believe this will bo admit
ted by tho members of the Court them-selves.
At the Orphcum.
The vaudovlllu season recommences
In earnest tonight with an elaboratn
program Including eight artsiu welt
known in their profession but new to
Honolulu. Stanley, a member of the
Stanlcy-Shafcr sketch team, has played I
many times over tho Orphcum circuit:
Joe Crotty, comedian, singer and dan
cer has made his reputation both In
America and England, his pedestal
dancing is conceded to be tho equal of
Dan Leno'a tho darling of tho Ilrltlsh
music halls. M'seelc Do Armo Is
heralded as a ballad singer of high
merit. Tho Morrises who arrived yes
terday on tho Australia also como
"highly recommended." Tho Murrays,
who havo already mado their hit In
their short engagement and the Or
phcum Quartet, strengthened by Che
nault, go to sotrcngthen tho program.
Thcro Is an unusually good opening
farce and tho whole bill promises to bo
tho strongest vaudevltlo attraction yet
presented at tho Orphoum.
