When the Morning Organ lias no re
aped for womanhood It can hardly be
expected to treat men of the Legisla
ture with nerage decency .
It Is now up to the Governor to write
a message on "shape." Such a dlgnlfled
document might attract as little atten
tion is his first message to the Legis
lature. The proficiency shown by the boys of
the mllltta nt Saturday evening' com
pctltlve drill Is certainly not an nrgu
incut In fnor of disbanding the mill
tary organization of the Territory.
The lighting parson has made bla
appearance nmong the negro Inboren
of Spreckelsvllle. Although the par
son committed the sin of losing his
temper, the account of the affair Indi
cates that even a parson was Justified
In the action.
No less an ardent supporter of
President McKlnley than Harper's
Weekly comes out with a request that
the President during his second term
appoint men to his Cabinet who nrc
worthy ot tho important tasks imposed
upon them. According to Harper's,
Secretary Root Is the only man of ca
pacity in McKlnlej's Cabinet.
The county government bill lias tak
en Its place on the legislative race
track. No handicaps of useless dis
cussion should be allowed to Impede
Its course. Decmtralliatlon Is thoi disfavor the progress of advancing Am
spirit of the hour, and If any of tho erlwn lll,!vl- " he fln(1 a support to
forces of centralization desire to block '?an on through the faor of some
the measure let them have the oppor
tunity to do so early In the game.

Yet this minority of the Legislature

Sanford II. Dole was nppolnted Gov
ernor of tho Tcrrltoiy of Hnwali by a
Republican President. Dole is supposed
to be n Republican. Certainly McKln
ley Is. or at least ho was elected to
office as such. What does It mean?
Simply that Governor Dole has no
support whatever from tho Republi
can pnrty of Hawaii nor Is his conduct
such r.s to warrant It; that his appoint
ment was the worst blow the American
progress and peace of tho country ever
received. That there Is no leader of

two Individuals of It who will rally to
his support. Are uny more nrguments

Drown,-to Justify the action of tho
executive and convince the Houbo and
the people nt large that the mission ot
the commissioner was in tho best In
terests of the Territory.
With such opportunities freely plac
ed nt his disposal, with every well
recognized duty of an executive officer
pointing to a detailed answer of the
legislative query, the Governor replies
that the questions arc not In "such
shape" that he can give them con
sideration. In other words, he has
given the Legislature to understand
that It Is taking up matters that are
none of Its business.
The only Inference that can be drawn
from the Governor's scant courtesy It
that Land Commissioner Ilrown's work
at Washington was that of n lobbyist
pure nnd simple. This inference is
further supported by Mr. Ilrown's pub
lic statement; "The bill to extend Unit
ed States land laws to Hawaii perished
In tho committee. Land Commissioner
Hermann advised against Its passage
AND WHEN HK DID THIS I WAS
READY TO COME HOME." Further
more, the statement wns given out bf
the executive officials that Land Com
missioner Ilrown wns to go to Wash
ington at the behest of the "executive
council" that means the Governor
and that his expenses would be paid
out of the Territorial appropriation fof
the Public Lands department.
If this be true, and the Governor has
refused to assert that It Is false, nn
greater fraud was ever perpetrated
upon n people by the most corrupt gov
ernment that ever went down to ultl
The only conclusions that can be
drawn from this latest activity of an
appointee of Governor Dole Is that the
Governor Is utterly devoid of the
knowledge of the duties of an Ameri
can administrative official or else he Is
ready to accept any measures, honest
or dishonest to accomplish his ends.
Whatever horn of the dilemma is ac
cepted, the proof of incompetence Is
absolute, the demand for his withdraw
al from office should be no lese posi
tive. Oovcrnor Dole has taken the Initia
tive In bringing the executive author
ity of the Territory In direct conflict
with the legislative representation of
the people. He ran find no support for
his ndlon among the people of Hawaii,
except n possible few who view with
Federal officer whether President or
departmental clerk, that support and
the rrrty it represents will be repu
diated by the people of Hawaii, nnd the
repudiation will be entirely Justified.
i For be It known to the Governor, thoso
serving under him and those responsl
bio for his being In office, that the peo
ple of this Territory know full well
their rights nnd privileges ns Ameri
can citizens, and they will not allow
those rights nnd privileges to be tramp
le d upon or treated with Indifference by
any official however high In the Terri
tory ot nation, who assumes tho pre
rogatives of dictator or king.

H. P. UALDWIN,
Mr. Whlto read the following report
of tho majority of the Judiciary Com
mittee on Senate bill No. 12, entitled
"An Act to amend section 200 of tbo
Penal Laws, relating to malicious In
jury: Your commltteo begs to say that in
their opinion and belief it Is not pos
sible to find In nny civilized country a
law such as Is embodied In section 200
of tho Penal Laws of 1897, cither In re-
epect to the definition of malicious In-
Jury, or malicious mischief (as it Is
sometimes called) or in respect to the
punishment Inflicted therefor. Bald
section 200 not only punishes mnllclnus
