The Advertiser Is ilrm In the bellf
that the respect of the President ctu
only be obtained and held by kowtow
ing like true hypocrites to anything
uud cver thing he may do. This policy
wo admit has been nurtured by the
changing governments and violated
oaths of upsetting Hawaiian govern
inrnts. but It finds no favor with
straightforward Americanism. Presl
dent McKlnlcy after the Territory of
Hawaii was entalillghed by Congress
placed peimmallt first nnd prospect of
limal siiiinud annflllll 'Pitta llu
local party sun ess second. This li
did without the sanction of n single na
tional paity manager. The fact Is so
well known by every man In Washing
ton who takes any Interest In Hawaii,
that our contemporary Is unite welcome
tu all the Joy It derives therefrom.

Tho second blast of the Tacoma
Evening News comes In response to tho
plaint of the American Settlers' Asso
ciation of Olaa. Tho tesult Is a com
bination nt truth nnd fiction tn.it U
difficult to analyze. Tho Bulletin has
little sj mpathy withe attack of tli- Si t
tlers' Association becnuso ltnp"ioiih-

of men fall to gel n hearing befoie the
United States Congress, it Is their own
fault. The Ilullettn has yet tu bo con

an ovci whelming Inllucnce with Kcd

As regards the local government It Is
controlled by sugar. Every man In tin
Terrltorj Is more or less controlled bj
sugar and will lontlnuc to bo ns Ions
as sugar Is the great product of the
Istiands. The Planters' Association Is
a power to which neither king, pres
ident, governor nor leglslatuie has cc
offcicd more than n pcrfuiK'lorj onpnsl
Hon on any question. The reason for
this quiescent attitude of the officials
and popular representatives Is the fur
ther fact that the bread and butter of
u largo majority of citizens Is derived
from this same sugar combination.
The ultimate object of every business
combination In this Territory Is to
make money. In this they share nun
share alike wlili the uiisIupsh men of
other portions of the United States.
They have been more successful In ob
taining favorable legislation than ninny
communities nnd tbeiefore may llnvo

business houses wcru es'iblUihod be

cult to break Into old channels of trade
and the man who bucks 'he center of
Hawaiian trade must be loaded with ns
. much or a little more moue than thoso
with whom he proposes to compete.
THE SUBJUGATED 1'UOI'LU OP
From the Taeoma Evening News.
Commenting upon the action of tin
wholesale meichants of Honolulu It
entering Intu u boycott of American
commercial travelers, the News, writ
ing from a pcrsbnul Knowledge of tint
conditions, recently denounced thu un
American nttltudo of tho ruling poweiu
In tho Hawaiian Islands. It said then.
nnd It repeats the assertion, that enter
prise and capital and lonipctltlon is
not wanted In the Islands by thoso who
contiol trade and the gov eminent.
The missionary element, headed li)
President Dole, has ruled the Islands
with nil Iron hand. Competition luw
been crushed and virtual slavery pre
vails everywhete. Up at least to tho
time of the appointment of Judge K
tee there has been no Justice In tha
courts. Laws were scuffed at and con
sidered of use only to protect tho sugar
barons and punish the Chinese and Ja
panese slaves. The experience of the
ship City of Columbia demonstrates
that American shipping was liable to
seizure and confiscation it cargoes
landed that might compete with those
already In trade, who had a complete
monopoly, and made every person and
Industry on the Islands pay tribute.
The Dole administration has less r'
spect for mi American citizen not a
member of tho political and sugar com
bine than It has for the Japanese whom
they hire for 112 a month and lino, im
prison and kill at will. Uy the system
of Hues linpoied by tho courts ever
irmly to do tho bidding of Iho mastnr.i,

American government. Public opinion
Is voiceless In the Islands. Vhen Sena
tor Cullom and the member's of the
commission visited tlio Ulahus, gloat
care was taken to see that they came in
contact with no person not represent;
tlvo of the Dole oligarchy, 'Uie mis
sionaries and bankers and membets of
the 'sugar growers" monopoly dine!
and wlncd them and looked sanctimon
ious and talked of love for the United
States and loyalty to the flag. They aie
nil adepts In tho art of h)pocrlsy and
smiled nt the ease with which the com
nilssldu was lueleil.
No greater mistake In government
wns ever made than the reappointment
of President Dole. That net confirmed
In pow n handful of monopolists who
despise the government upon which
they call for protection. It made It
Impossible for any new capital to civ
gaga In business In the Islands or fir
any enterprise for tho benefit of all the,
people to be established.
Under the Dole regime the loyal and
truo Americans engaged In trade dare
not say that their soul is their own
for every man, woman, child nnd in
ilutary on the Islands may only live or
exist nt tho pleasure of Piesldcnt Dole
anil the sugar barons, half n dozn m
Not only nre commercial travelers
not wanted on the Islands and ate
iogli,,tcir ngalnst nnd lined out of exin-
tenie. but no one Is wanted cxccepl
coolie laborers nnd slaves. The trade
mid pulltlis nnd public sentiment r
the Islands Is eonttolled u half i
dozen men, nnd President Dole doj
not wish tho monopoly dlstrubed. At

nnd at home to all who would see the
Islands progressUc and well govcrncl
he Is Mr. Hyde.
There has been much surpilse In this
country nt the outcome of the tecum
election In tho Islands when Mr. Wtl
rox. a defender of the monarchy nnd a
friend of the natives, was elected a
delegate to Congriss. To those Win
understood the conditions In the Isl
ands the result was no surprise, l'rti
dent Dole and the element he rep,
scuts Intimidated nnd contiollcd tb
vote of the Island of Oahu. but his po.
er was less potent In Hawaii, Maul ar
Molokal. and the people triumphed
The nitlws have been oppressed n i
mme nor no less than cnterprlsiu,.
Americans who have sought to OBtmi
lUh a home In the Paradise of the Pa
cific nnd found themselves polltlcniii
ostiaclscit by the Dole ring and u it
permitted to engage In business by tn
half dozen sugar factors and mission
aries who control tho courts and give
orders to President Dole.
To rebuke these tyrants In trade and
politics the people went tu the oppo
site extreme and elected to Congress n
man pledged to restore I.llluoknlaul to
That Is not Meshed by n majority in
the Islands, but It Is certain that the
form of government would be Just ns
American under I.llluukalanl as undei
Dole, nnd natives and Americans would
hive moie ical ficedom and Indepen
dence. The Islands will neer prospei
nor will their trade be fully developed
until President Dode andthemonopu
llcs which he has enthroned and pro
tected have been overthrow n.
For editorial opinions similar o
these the Seattle Post-lntclllgcucer In
lis superior wisdom lccently took the
News to task. Some of President Dole's
monopolies feared an expose of the po
litical h)pocrlsy and exclusive trade
domination and found the Post-Intel-llgenccr
a willing but Ignorant defen
der. The Post-Intelligencer seized upon
the opportunity to si up Tacoma In th'i
fnco nnd make It appear that It ".a
pursuing a dog.Jn the manger policy,
and was trying to prcent others from
securing a trndo It did not itself
possess. The truth Is, tho Hawaiian
Islands have an exclusive monopoly
of trade within themselves. They buy
of course many Puget sound product i,
but neither praise, nor pleadings, nor
dynamite could induce them under
existing conditions to trade other thin
with San Francisco. That city pro
tects them In their monopoly nnd help
them to closo their doors to nil new
enterprises. They do not seek a cheap
market, for they fix their own prices
ami their profits are the same undr
any conditions of purchase or sab.
President Dole Is as great a hater of
"foreign devils" ns tho empress dow
ager of China, although he Is more dip
lomatic and politic In his opposition.
When President McKlnley's eyes are
opened, and the Hawaiian Islands .lie
Governed by a representative of trie
Americanism, then, and not until thou
will there be an "open door" to the
Hawaiian Islands. Then, and not Until
then, will tho long suffering majority
outside the Dole oligarchy, now resi
dent in tho Islands, have an opportun
Ity to enjoy the fruits of their toll and
the results of their Investments In pro
