TUESDAY MAY 15, 1900.
The troubles of tho English war office
serve to show what n small amount of
provocation the critics of our War De
I'uitn Rico may and indeed has Its
troubles, hut the citizens of that Island
arc glad that they do not live cither
in Kentucky or Nebraska.
The evening contemporary laboring
under the delusion that tho Governor
npoplnts the commlsslouerof labor will
do well to poruso tho Territorial law
n little more closely.
Minister Youn gls to bo congratulat
ed on the prompt business llko manner
In which he is taking up tho public
work for which the Council of State
provided ample funds. With Mr.
Young's business administration there
is no blockading of the purpose of
legislative activity by dilatory tactics.
Not the least of tho blessings, con
ferred upon tho community by Mr.
Young's activity Is his securing the
expenditure of $10,000 a month for Ho
nolulu BtreetH. Hoad Supervisor Camp
bell may be depended upon to place our
streets In condition to once more glvo
prominent mention from taxpayers ana
The official organ blandly admits
that It prefers a $75 Jot) to a fair mind
ed administration by tho Executive
Council. For an additional 25 tho
Advertiser would doubtless como out
under tho colors of the Democracy for
whoso success it has devoted much
space by seeking through misrepresen
tation to knlfo tho Republican parly
at Its Inception.
It Is really amusing to note the hope
ful spirit in which some, of our good
citizens cling to tho old "Our Party"
Idea. It will not bo surprising after
tho Republican and Democratic par
ties nre organized to have Our Party,
which arrogates to itself all tho "Intel
ligence" of tho Territory organizing a
"peace club" "for good government"
and the usual spoils from the winner.
With straight American parties In
full swing when Hawaii's first elec
tions occur tho chances of corruption
or Incompetent men being put to tho
front Is reduced to a minimum. The
progressive citizens of tho Territory
will carry out tho spirit of annexation
to Its least and most complcto detail.
Those, who want to hang on to past
politics are free to do so and become
Progress, as Interpreted by the his
tory of tho last two years, will bo a
slow coach when compared with tho
soli., development and universal pros
perity that will mako memorable tuo
first years of tho Territory. Republi
can prosperity makes mighty poor
working material for tho Democrats,
but thcro Is always honest admiration
to tho men whoso loyalty to party
principle lends them to mako tho fight,
though defeat at tho polls Is assured.
How's this for expansion? Last
year, 1899, tho exports of American
farm products and manufactures to Cu
ba, Porto Rico, Hawaiian, Phlllpplno
and Samoan Islands Increased by moro
than 100 per cent. Desldcs this, near
ly $0,000,000 worth of American flour
went to tho Orient last year, nn in
crease of $2,000,000 slnco 1898, most of
It for China, Japan, and Asiatic Rus
sia. Undo Sam has two good stepping
stones to Oriental trado, ono at Hono
lulu nnd tho other nt Manila.
If tho group of anniversary celebra
tions Is to bo followed with two elec
tions during tho present year, Hawaii
will have no necessity for rain maklnc
experiments, nor will there bo any lack
of excitement. Chances favor that tho
first election will bo as good a show to
attract tourist traffic as a four ringed
circus. Certainly tho peoplo cannot
bo taken to task If after having been
Indifferent to politics for six years,
they let looso with a friendly enthusi
asm that will putstlrrlngeventB of past
history la tho shade.
VOTERS SHOULD ACT NOW.
In view of tho fact thnt certain ele
ments In the local political field aro at
their happiest when condemning Amer
ican politics as corrupt and parties as
organizations to bo shunned, It is not
Btrango that Hawaiian citizens unac
quainted with tho facts of American
government nro disposed 'to play n
waiting gamo and hesitate, to take up
political work on straight American
lines. Almost without exception thoso
charging American parties with being
hotbeds of corruption nnd machine
rule aro prominent among theoretical
Jobbers who sneer nt patriotism and
can accept no opinions but their own.
Appreciating that thoy cannot get
votes they condemn with great eclat
the foundation principles of tho nation
nnd tho majority who support them
nnd upon whom tho nation depenrs in
Its hour of need.
Hawaiian citizens entering upon tho
privileges nnd responsibility of Ameri
can citizenship havo their future poli
tical fato In their own hands. They
havo to dccldo whether they will ncccpt
the misleading say so of pessimistic
thcorlzers or will Immediately exercise I
their full rights, and boldly, honestly
nnd nctlvely ally themselves with tho
American parties and mako their fight
for popular government upon Ameri
can lines. Leaders represent the volco
of tho majority. Citizens of this Ter
ritory who nro standing back, because
they do not know American politics,
while tho parties or forming aro merely
losing their best opportunity to shnpo
party principle and political nctlon nnd
placing popular leaders nt the front. Dy
withholding now, voters nro playing
Into tho hands of men who
will lose no opportunity to re
strict tho finnchlse nnd force class
legislation upon tho Territory. They
arc also lessening their influence In the
counsels of tho national Congress, cast
ing their voting power to tho winds
where their enemies would like to see
Mugwumps may howl as they plcaso
that citizens of tho Territory have
nothing to do with the national parties
or polities, the fact remains that the
citizens of Hawaii cannot reform or
Improve national politics of the Ameri
can people. If our peoplo deslro to
exert nny influenco for tho furtherance
of tho best Interests of iho Territory
they must act through and with the
American parties formed on Amcrlcnn
methods. Selfish Interests of tho Terri
tory, loyalty to tho party that gavo the
peoplo manhood suffrage demand that
every voters of this city shall attend
tho primaries, nnd attending shall
voto for thoso men In whoso broad
minded Integrity tho pooplo from the
waterfront to TantaluB, Diamond Head
to Darbcr's Point, havo confidence.
