TUESDAY NOVEMUER 27, 1000.
It seems hardly possible that Gov
ernor Dolo contemplates munclpal legit
latum for I Ian all by Congress. Such
legislation Is fully within the province
of r.en named by the Territorial elc
torntc. Action by Congress would
menu no action, a series of delays last
In? over an Interminable term of yean.
The Cluonlcle's statement that II i
wa..ans are less capable than the Fili
pinos ! not borne out by present facts
or the conclusions to bo drawn from
tht history of the two races. The Fili
pino Is more enntankerous, a harder
fishtcr and more umcllablc. If these
(Ciibtltute superior qualities of cltl

I'M gone far astray In Its estimate of
The arrival of n man from New Or
leans al'llcted with lepros lmme.ll
uily causes the public to wonder
whether this man has made himself
a tool of those who hope to make th
Moluknl settlement a national homo
fev lepers from all parts of the State.
This must appear as Impossible since
no common cairicr could lend Itself ti
such a nefarious scheme. The duty c!
the Health Hoard Is plain.
The apparent decision of the I'oweis
to forco the United States into a por
tion of taking Chinese territory or
li.il ling places American activity in the
Oilenuil cmbruglio on a decidedly hu
n.i.nltnilan plane. The United States
cannot, will not attempt the adminis
tration of any more new people until
the Philippines have been whipped Into
n more complete semblance of peaco..
rinanclal Indemnity appears cuuallv
lirpbssllilc, especially when European
nations prefer the pound of territorial
flesh to the cash price. The res'llt
foreshadowed by the present lineup
of the Powers promises Americans wMI

THE HAWAIIAN liLUCTION.
From the San Francisco Chronicle.
Tho result of tho congressional .elec
tion In Hawaii 13 tho choice of n po
litical agitator of mixed blood as tho
elolcgato to congress. Such a result
Is unfoitunato In many respects, as tho
elelegato from the Islands is llkel to
have little Influence In Congress, not
by reason of his mixed blood but be
cause of his peisonal record.
Ho has net tho confidence of tho
business men of tho Islands, who .ire
considering tho question of maintain
Ina nn unofficial representntlvo at
Washington to look after tho business
inteixtts of tho Islands. Another pos
Blblo result which would bo very un
desirable Is n political alignment on
racial lines In futuro elections, which,
however, may not happen.
Dut, on tho other hand, we may
obtain from this election some valu
able polltlcnl lessons. Tho natlvo clo
nient In Hawaii, although numerically
tho largest. Is tho weak element, anl
Jt Is not nt all undesirable that tliiu
people shall havo a henrlng. It Is iut
certain that the whites would not take
undue ndvantago of tho natives ,f
they havo tho oppoitunlty, and It 's
well to hear all that they havo to sa.
Tho history of tho delegate thohcm
Indicates Hint It will always bo necus
sary to carefully verify ills statements,
but nt nny ralo wo shall know, wh.n
we get through, that nothing which
could be said ngalnst tho present Ha
waiian administration has been omit
ted. Another useful result will bo tU
opportunity which It may nfford to
study the effects of Intrusting nn Is
land raco with tho responsibilities of
Tho "Independents," ns tho nntWe
party Is called, come very near con
trolling the legislature. In somo cases
they fusod with the democrats, and of
Independents nnd fuslonlsts theio Is
clear majority In both houses. Tho
whlto element has always been nble to
conttol tho legislature, regardless of
tho number of natlvo members, and
It will bo Instructive) to watch the
course of its legislation. No harm to
business Intercrts can come from po-'l
tlvo legislation, as tho governor has
nn amplo veto power, and there Is al
ways congress to fall back upon If ab
solutely necessary n power, howovor,
which ought never to be called In If
it can bo avoided. Tho Hawaiian na
tives have no such political capacity
ns tho more civilized tribes of the
Philippines, nnd are Immeasurably less
vigorous. Nevertheless, wo should be
able to learn much which will bo of
value when wo como to cstnbllsh our
stnblo government in tho Phlllpplno

Will II 11
Nevf York, Nov 20. The China ne
gotiations, according to a dispatch to
tin Times from Washington, hae
readied a most serious stage. The na
tions ot the powers arc making paiti
ticu utmost Inevitable. The Culled
States faces tho probability that It will
eltliu have to take n slice of China ir
go without any Indemnity. In that
case. It Is positively stated by high au
thoiiucs that the United States will go
Tno United Stntes may succeed In re
ducing the demands of other powers
and Is now making cery eftort to that
end, but with no Immediate prespect
of tu cess.
Kcry nation has disavowed any In
tuition of dismembering China, but
that merely relates to dismemberment
us n punishment for the Iloxer out
niges. No nation has pledged Itself to
avoid taking a courso which will. soon
er or later aKc dismemberment Inevi
table. It Is firmly believed In otllclal
elR'Icf In Washington that the powers
nic pioceedmg deliberately with the In
tention of bringing about a situation
which will compel dlsmemben.ietit.
1 he whole question hinges on the
ummint of mone Indemnity to be d -a
anded. While the United States has i
not cfflclnlly set a maximum figure for I
the Indemnity it Is the uuolilclal opin
ion ct some of the highest otllcials u: :
the liLVcrnmcnt that sfiUO.uuO.uuu is in
Jiat China can pay. The powers nn
desirous of swelling the Indemnity t.
a: least twice that amount.
Two courses nre considered for the
payment of this largo Indemnity. Each
U innocent on Its face, but both mean
partition nnd tho American Govern-1
ment is so sure of It thnt ns soon ns the i
powers bdopt other couises, this cciui.-t-y
will rctlte from the conceit nnd
lose all but n faint chance of over re
covering any Indemnity.
One course Is to exact terrltorl il
pledges. This Is the same thing as par
tition for It simply means a mortgage
wl'l-h Is certain to be foreclosed, The
United States will not have anything to ,
d' with this scheme. I
1 he other plan Is to have China issue '
Lvnus, guaranteed by the powers. This.
In ths opinion of the American Oov
ernment, means partition just ns sure
ly as the first scheme. The bondhold
ers would have recourse to the guac
ct.tors who could not fulfill their guar
antees except by taking territory. Par
tition by this means may appear a
thing of the distant future, but a high
official of the Government hatf recently
given It ns his deliberate opinion tiui
the bond scheme would bring nboat
partition almost as soon as the other.
The United States will not guarantee
any bonds. How the United States ca i
collect its Indemnity If It does stay out
!a n mystery. The Government olllcla's
frankly give up the conundrum. The
United States will not. of course, sur
render Its claim and give China a re
ceipt In full. It will endeavor In ever.v
way possible to get Its indemnity bit:
there Is no wny open In the Immediate
futuie. If the powers carry out their
The United States has therefore, only
one v.-ay of getting Indemnity. That
Is by Inducing the other powers to re
duce their demands to an Indemnity
v lilrii China Is able to pay. The ad
mlnlftratlon Is hopeful of success, but
so far Its has made no progress, and tho
chances seem to be all rfgalnst It.
The United States spent about $20.
000,000 on going to Peking and th's
cointry's demand for damage to per
sons nnd property may range from $10,-
COO.000 to $20,000,000. Uut the other
powers nre actively Swelling their ex
panses as much ns possible.
Tiilicn It Humorously.
