HAWAII THE AMERICAN
Ship of State Happily Launched
Upon Its New Career.
Inauguration Ceremonies at the
for tbe Celebration of
Admission Day Tbis
Hon. Sanford Ballard Dolo was In
augurated as llrst Governor of tho Ter
ritory of Hawaii, United States of
America, with Impressive cercmonlea
at 10 o'clock this morning In front of
tho Capitol, or tho Executlvo building.
It was a sccno long to bo remem
bered. Tho threo platforms erected
over and on cither side of tho steps
wcro occupied by tbo leading actors,
olllclul guests and the lady relatives of
both. Upon tho llrst floor veranda and
tho second floor balcony sat and stood
citizens with their wives and families.
Alt wcro in holiday attlro. In front of
tho building was a vast concourse,
numbering anywhere from threo to flvo
thousand people, of races hailing from
' every climo and quarter of tho globe.
Tho native Hawaiian was gratlfylngly
In evidence wherever tho eye turned.
Tho mlddlo platform was reserved to
tho Governor designate, members of
tho Cabinet of his ending presidency of
tho Republic of Hawaii, department
heads of the Territory und tho minis
ters of religion and justico officiating
at tho Inauguration.
Tho right platform was for tho Con
sular Corps and ladles, and tho left for
former high officials, members of the
legislative bodies of the Itcpubllc am
ladles. Upon tho ground, on olthn
side in front, were nmplo accommoda
Uoiib for press representatives.
Rev. K. S. Timotco offered up the In
auguration prayer In the Hawaiian lan

The Inaug irnl Address.
Governor Dolo was handed a port

secretary, from which ho drew tho
manuscript of tho following Inaugural

with good elocutionary effect:

ment, I could not contemplate the task
beforo mo without deep misgiving.
The political evolution of Hawaii has
been from feudalism to royal authority,
then to a republic and now to r.cpcn
denco upon a stronger nation. Tbo re
cent policy of tho great powers to par
cel out between them the Islands of
Polynesia, has been an Influential fac
tor in the last act of theso successivo
changes. Paramount commercial illa
tions with tho United States have
formed another. With such influences
at work, It only needed the decadence
of tho monarchical authority to cause
tho Hawaiian community with its
strong American sentiment to gravl
tato IrrcBtstably to tbe United States,
choosing Its own destiny rather than
leaving It to bo decided by others.
StutcHmunoliip ot Kumehameha.
Hnwali owes Its rcmarkablo progress
In civilization largely to tho wlso
statesmanship of Kamehameha III. and
other high chiefs, In the early part of
his reign. Theso men and women care
fully weighed tho counsels of their new
ndvlscrs from across tho sea, and se
lected tho best as n basis of action. A
few months of peaceful revolution suf
ficed for an advanco in civil idmlnU
tratlon, which has, in analogous cases,
required years of dovastatlng civil war.
Personal rights wcro guaranteed: tho
absoluto authority of the sovereign was
voluntarily surrendered for constitu
tional limitations; the vast landed In
terests of king and chiefs the rich
prizes of tho victories of Kamehameha
tho first, wcro divided and adjusted in
conformity with tho new recognition ot
.ho rights of tho common people, nnd
.ho creation of corporato government.
It ts not easy for us at this time to
;lvo duo weight to this organizing
trork of thoso chiefs and their foreign
dvlscrs. Had tho former been less
jubllc spirited, or had the' latter boen
less sincere, In all probability tbo his
tory of many another tragic conlll:t
between tho forces of civilization nnd
barbarism would havo been repeated
Tho Influence of this peaceful reform
In tho civil system has been to this day
constant and controlling in the rela
tions between the Hawaiian and tho
foreigner. To this Influence we may
largely credit tho comparatively peace
ful settlement of tho disturbed condi
tion of affairs incident to tho dissolu
tion of tho monarchical system.
Bewildering to Howollans.
To Hawallans this occurrcnco was
especially painful nnd bowtlderlng. Ac
customed to tho wise and successful
rulo of tho Kamehamchas nnd to a
Hereditary sentiment at loyalty toward
tho ruling chiefs, but few were ablo to
weigh tho causes that led to tho dis
integration of tho royal prerogatives In
1893; yet In splto of the most disturb
ing nature- of this event, they did not
as a class nssumo a hostllo attitude,
nor retuso their confidence to those
who succeeded to the sovereign author
ity, although tney have to a consider
able extent held aloof from participa
tion In public affairs. Many among
them havo been irreconcilably hostllo
to tho new movement, whllo others
have been its steadfast supporters, but
tho mass havo remained In a stato of
suspense In political matters.
Tho solution that has como Is politi
cal union with a great and most friend
ly nation, In which relation natlvo Ha
wallans aro guaranteed full civil rights
as citizens of Hawaii and also as citi
zens ot tho United States. May they
never forget how America has trusted
Generosity to Hnwtillnns.
This generous treatment ot the Ha
wnllans by Congress calls for no less
consideration from their fellow citizens
In theso Islands. They wero tho flrot
settlers In Hawaii pioneers of us ell.
With tho most limited resources and
without metals, they worked out an
olaborato and splendid feudalism, de
veloped agriculture, hydraulic cngln
eerlng and the manufacture ot beauti
ful and useful fabrics. They welcomed
tho foreigner and adopted his civiliza
tion, both to their advantogo and in
Jury. May fellowship between the two
races bo honorable and helpful and

sldcrntc manner. With grcnt deliber
ation has our request been acceded to
and Anally consummated with a regard
for our public and prlvato Interests
that wo can never forget.
Tho Joint resolution of annexation
guarantees perpetual union; tho non
application of American public land
laws to our limited public domain; tho
use of land revenues for the sole bene
fit of our population for educational
nnd other public purposes, and tho pay
ment of our public debt.
Upon these guarantees nnd the prin
ciples of the constitution of tho United
States and the friendship of the AtncM
can peoplo for Hawaii, has tho Terri
torial Act, tho groundwork of our new
civil system, been bulldcd.
Our Lcglslnturo and our Judiciary
aro restored to us without fundamental
changes; American citizenship, man
hood suffrago nnd representation in
Congress aro conferred upon all Hawa
iian citizens; only Hawaiian citizens
may quality for tho office of Governor
or other offices under the Territorial
government; our laws are substantially
retained, save such as became unneces
sary under the now conditions.
Hnwali has no longer a separate In
dependence, but It is now a component
part or an Independent and powerful
nation. Its limitations aro slight end
Its freedom of action large enough for
tho present. Its fundamental law af
fords a largo measure of self govern
ment nnd protects us from the rulo of
In our composlto community the
great world races aro well represented:
Polynesian, Anglo-Saxon, Frank nnd
Turanian. Bccnuso of this the difficul
ties of government nro much Increased.
For the protection of the representative
and other phases ot modern civilized
government, It has been deemed essen
tial to refuse citizenship to represen
tatives of the Chinese nnd Japanese na
tions which together form a largo part
ot our population, although some of
theso are undoubtedly well qualified foi
tnc duties of citizenship.
Tho arbitrary denial of tho franchise
nnd consequent representation to these,
places upon tho rest of tho community
whether as voters, legislators, the
courts of tho executive, tho considera
tion of the Interests ot these unrepre
sented persons. Neglect ot this obliga
tion would not only be an Injustice to
them but would lucvltnbly mennro tho
welfare of all.
As a corrective to raco prejudice, our
educational system reaches ill children
of whatever nationality. Tho Chinese
child may pursuo Chinese studies at
sorao part of tho day or night, but he
must tako up his English lessons In
regular school hours. As a result the
boys of our public schools of all na
tionalities compete with ench other In
their school room work nnd play ball
together on tho piny ground. Uy tbo
time they are grown up their raeo Jeal
ousies havo substantially melted away
Corporation and Labor.
The pressing demands of agricultural
corporations for cheap field labor, to
gether with their great Influence, will
contlnuo as In the past to bo an ob
stacle to the development of such n
citizen population as shall safeguard
tho political future of Hawaii. Tho
two enterprises nro mutually hostile.
Tho ono Is Interested In men ns ma
chines, the other ns factors In tho de
velopment of tho state.
As tho control ot such corporations
gradually passes into the hands of
thoso who are without tho restraining
Influences of local and traditional as
sociations, nnd nro not Interested In
the social growth of tho Hawaiian com
munity, this danger may becomo more
threatening than heretofore.
Every ono who Is resident hero, not
merely to amass wealth, but to llvo n
home life nnd perhaps to bring up chil
dren who will necessarily becomo nt
tached to tho country, Its climate and
Its social life, Is mos't vitally Interested
In having this matter rightly solcd.
This mcanB that It shall net only bo
possible but settled beyond all ques
tion, thnt no moneyed Interest shall
bo allowed to stand In tho way of the
development ot a pure family life In
any part of tho Territory of Hawaii;
either by tho enforcement of unfavor
able conditions upon the field laborer,
whereby family life Is mad-i morally
Impossible or only immorally possible,
ir by opposing tho settlement of the
imnll proprietor. Indifference ot gov
irnmcnt or employers to the inalien
able rights of men, women nnd chil
Ircn to an Ideal homo environment
must result, sooner or later, In tho io
irlsalB of natural Justice.
Our shores and mountain slopes offer
t fertile soil and an Infinite variety of
andsenpe, sufficient and sultablo for
he homes of such citizens and enough
it them ns shall assure honest and
:apablo government and statehood In
The Land Policy.
The land policy of the Itcpubllc of
Hawaii, whereby public lands are
ipened for settlement in small Hold'
lngs, should bo continued by tho Ter
rltory with such changes ns cxperlcnco
has shown to be necessary, and carried
on with vigor und earnestness In the
hopo thnt many Americans may be lod
to transfer their homes from tho Main
land to Hawaii.
This future Is something to work for,
wisely and persistently. Business Is
shortsighted nnd will not strive for the
ideal result unless It pays to do so. Let
us convlneo it that It will pay to do
tills. In dollars and In tho higher values
also; and In tho mcnntlmo, let tho citi
zen nnd his representative aim to pro
vent enterprise from doing tho least
thing against tho Interests of tho body
Two other great enterprises will es
pecially enlist tho thought nnd energy
of tho Territory the Improvement nnd
oxtenslon of highways In a measure
consonnnt with prospective needs; nnd
tho creation of municlpllltlcs. This
will require the profoundest study nnd
an honcut public spirit, that such gov
ernments may perform a useful servlco
and not becomo sources of civil cor
ruption and thereby oppressive to those
within their Jurisdictions.
A happy feature of our lato period of
civil dissension was tho usual survival
of friendly relations between Indi
viduals of divergent political opinions
and consequent public action. Few
friendships wcro broken on this ac
count or social relations disturbed.
Mindful of this, I feel tho utmost con
fidence lu calling upon nil of whatever
namo or opinion, to allow the political
Irritations of recent years to disappear
In the shadows of tho past; and, turn
ing to the future, to Join hands In the
creation of nn Ideal commonwealth out
of our complex conditions.
Our outlook Is most auspicious. The
shores and Islands ot the great Pa
cific ocean hnvo already becomo tne
theater of a drama, tho successive arts
of which will affect tho mutual rela
tions of tho nations ot the world.
Tho great powers are massing their
forces In this ocean for tho protection
and Qovolopmcnt of their commrco and
tho promotion of national prestige.
Hawaii is tho one mid-ocean refuge
of the North Pacific a half way house
where all passers by must stop for re
freshment. A stately procession ot ships carries
our pioducts around tho stormy capo
to tho Atlantic shores of tho United
States, another to tho Pacific Coast.
Our harbors aro already inadequate for
aur commcive. Hawaiian agricultural
snterprlsts, easily leading tho world In
.ho relative production of our main
:rop, Is ns yet far from Its climax. Our
climate, tho Joint production of the sun
ind tho trnao wind acting ovor a
thousand leagues of sea, and tho loveli
ness of our mountain scenery nro a
perpetual Invitation to tho denizens of
ill latitudes. Hawaii Is foreaimed by
Its past experience for this new essay
'n government. Tho honorable com
petition of sister Territories, tho hopo
of Statehood, and tho glorious history
of America must Inspire her.
Let us tako up this work with en
thusiasm, nnd bo worthy of tho corfl
denco which Congress has In us.
Let us keep forever upon our prcat
seal our old national motto the breath
of the land endures In righteousness,
and always remember that private
character Is tho real foundation of
The Military Review.

tho Executive building, known ns

In bridal array before tho last day of

sunlight. Through the art ot tho elec

a palaco borrowed from a colestlal city.

Strings of lamps In tho national colors

There has ncvor been a prettier
scheme of decoration thnn that upon

bearing tho American and Hawaiian
flag designs, proper flags of Nation nnd
