of the New York Tribune to the New

to be regretted and leads to the con

character of Hawaiian citizens by
studying the public utterances of Sen

perhaps recent Issuis of the Gazette.
It Is Indeed unfortunate that the ts
tabllshment of the United Stntes Dis

will certafnly approve of Judge Estee
allowing no obstacles to stand In the
way of the early activity of the Tedcral
Court, at the same time finding perma
nent spate for the Increased machinery
of government. Including the Legis
lature as well as the courts Is a prob

It Is safe to say that Judge Esicc
will not find a hquad of soldiers oppos

of the Terlrtory and although he ap
parently takes offense at the word
"temporary," It Is to be hoped the day
Is not far distant when Honolulu will
be able to offer much more satlsfactoiy

One of the most reassuilng develop

vity since Hawaii's position In the
Union was tstabllshed by net of Con
gress Is the large number of Hawe-llan-Amerkans
who have signified
their intention, verbally, by signing
the rolls and taking part In the pri
maries, to affiliate with and support
the liberal principles of the Republican
party. That this action of the Hnwa
iluna should meet with disfavor and
that disfavor find expression In the
public print suggests Its own argu
ments, but It Is a notable fact that
this expression of disfavor does not
find Its source In the ranks of the Re
publican party either In Hawaii or on

degraded and corrupt elements of
