What right bus the Legislature to
ntaku the Ilnjild Transit franchise an
exclusive franchise by irfuslng to grant
the Train" a) s Company the privilege
of operating Its Hues by electricity?
What are the people to gain by making
the Traimwos Company stlcl. to
its mules which the decision of the
Supreme Court practically forces It to
do" The effort to defeat the "rain's
electric franchise" Is nothing more or
less than the play of one corporation
to Kandbag another An exclusive
franchise In the hnnds of the Rapid
Transit Company will work to the ills
ndantage of the public quite ns forcN
bly as exelushe rights In the control
of the Tramways Company. This
Legislature should set Itself poslthely
against exelushe franchises of any
character, allowing the corporations
equal rights to tight their battles
anions' themselves It now remains to
be seen whether the Rapid Transit
Company owns the Legislature as well
ns being the special favorite of tho
Department of Public Works.
Refusal to extend the legislative ses
sion when most Important legislation
remains unfinished adds new force to
the conclusion that Mr. Dole, when ap
pointed Governor, considered that he
was elevated to the position of a Ter
ritorial dictator fslng the authority
vested In him by the Organic Act Gov
ernor Dole has created practically a
leglslathe deadlock when eery moral
duty of his position as chief executive
of an American Territory should urge
him to ndopt a policy that will facili
tate public business, and secure to the
Territory competent laws to properly
.provide for the new conditions.
It Is unquestionably true that the
Legislature has wasted time. It Is not
to be disputed that the session has been
rxpenslte. It innnot be denied, how
eer, that during the last few weeks an
Immense amount of good work has
been accomplished and an extension of
een a week or ten dayis would com
plete the morn Important work that
should be done by the law makers be
fore taking up the appropriation bills.
The Inauguration of a new form of
Ko eminent presupposed a stormy ses
sion. It must necessarily take time
for many leglslatois to fully undrr
stund their new positions, their rights
and their duties as Americans. There
was an old bitterness of political feel
ing that must be overcome. Instead of
assisting the Legislature and dealing
with Its flery spirit In n kindly and
thoughtful manner, as his duty de
manded, the Governor has remained
stubborn and dictatorial from first to
And now that tho Legislature 'has
fluall) got clown to a fair minded, hatd
working basis the Governor pcremp
tnill) chokes off the session, creates
fresh antagonisms and m'Ih the Terri
tory out on a new war nt woids. Theio
Is absolutel) no time limit to the extra
session the Governor Is about to call
and In the present angry mood the
Governor has created It Is safe to as
sume legislative members will take
plenty of time, even ninety additional
davs. The end Is not In sight and
the Governor must of necessity be held
lesponslble for tho blockade which
i hecks Territorial progress, causes uni
versal discontent and establishes lack
of confidence In the administration.

nffalrs In the administration than .any
Washington correspondent has occa
sion to bo. It vvns not forwarded to
this paper cither on an order or request
but Is merely a statement of fact show
ing how tho Territorial administration
Is dally discrediting Itself with Federal
nulhorlty nnd thereby Injuring the
best Interests of the Territory nt large.
The rclatlona between tho Governor's
Administration and tho Federal depart
incuts nro steadily approaching tho
same state of affairs that now exls'ta
between tho Governor and tlio Legis
lature. Tho fact of the matter Is that
hea,ds of departments havo been less
lenient than the President and even
the President himself Is getting tired
of the continuous warfare forced to
his attention by tho cxecutlvo depart
ment of the Territory of Hawaii. The
satisfaction derived from this condi
tion by tho Morning Organ dictators
BTcrcly bespeaks their earnest desire
to discredit tho President nnd all Fed
eral authority that they may reign
FEDERAL AUTHORITY AND
The funniest thing ever printed or
spoken In connection with the Gover
nor's relations with Federal depart
ments appears In tho Morning Organ
in tho course of a laboied effort to ex
plain the Governor's struggles to set
himself above Federal authority. The
"The Cooper Incident, which
Secretary Hitchcock long ago dis
posed of by his statement, per
"His statement per Associated
Press." The people must then ho con
vinced that Secretary Hitchcock nnd
the President and all his secretaries
dispose o nfffalrs In nil tho new pos
sessions, more especially Hawaii, by
statements "per Associated Press." No
doubt Secretary Hitchcock made a
statement to the Associated PreBS, No
doubt the Associated Pi ess quoted him
correctly. Rut the child like simpli

three men and the boy that constitute
its following, that this "disposed" of
the Incident Is qulto woithy'of the
small boy politician with nn Inflnted
hog bladder to play with. All the
prestige the Territorial Government
has gained by the Cooper Incident It Is
qulto wclcomo to. ns It Is to tho disposal
of the affair "per Associated Prehs."
As to tho Governor's mnllmious ef
fort to make the Federal Court uncom
fortable, the ublo assistant o of tho Hu
peilntendent of Public Woiks has ren
dered In antagonizing the Federal offi
cials, and the scant courtesy gi anted
Mr Moyer, these are matters which the
Governor will probably know more
nbout when ho opens l,ls mall by tho
recent steamers. The Governor, who,
according to his own statement allows
his official mall to remain unopened a
full twenty-four hours must neceB

The dispatch published by tho Ilul
letln icdallve In the Federal Court was
not from Its regular coriespoudent,
Editor Evening llulletin: Under tho
caption "Replies to Citizen" J. A. Mc
Cnndless, Superintendent of Public
Works, vouchsafes th following In
formation' First, ho says "you tell
ICtlzen' that neither I nor tho McCan
dless Hrothcrs own one cent in the
Rapid Transit Co." Now, Mr. Editor,
the Superintendent of Public Works
and of the pall contract lr slmpljt whip
ping the Devil round (he post In his
usual capable manner. Either ho Is
telling the truth or the Mnnagcr of the
Rapid Transit Is wilfully lying when
under oath, for his lo-t sworn state
ment shows that .1. S. McCandless own
ed fifty shares of $100 each and L. L.
McCandless one hundred shares of $100
each, whilst the previous statement
shows that J. A. McCandless owned
Bfty shares, J. S. McCandless fifty and
L. U McCandless fifty. The foxy su
perintendent has merely transferred
his fifty shares to his brother Lincoln
and then turns round and says the Mc
Candless' do not own any.
The only difference between tho last
sworn statement and this one is that
there L. L. McCandless owned fifty nnd
J. A. McCandless fifty, while now L .L.
McCandless Is credltted with one hun
dred nnd his brother John with none.
Will J. A. McCandless give tho name
of the person to whom he sold his
shares, the date thereof and to whom
were they transferred. So much for
his peculiar denial of the statement
that the McCandless" were not Interest
ed In the Rapid Transit Company.
He then goes on to stnte that the
Rapid Transit Company has lived up
to Its charter on every street, thnt tho
old street was good enough for busi
ness purposes but a good deal of level
ing had to be done to mnke It proper to
run a railway upon. Now Mr. Editor,
the Superintendent has Just corrobor
ated me In every particular wherein I
stated that the Rapid Transit Company
were entitled to repair the roads and
do all tho necessary repairs caused by
the Intioductlon of their lines.
The following Is sub-Bcctlon 4 of sec
tion I of the Rapid Transit Company's
Act: "The said Association shall pay
all expenses and damages and save the
Government haimless and Indemnify
from all losses, cost, damage or expense
In consequence of or arising from the
construction of said railway, and pay
for all repairs to the rtrcets In which
the same may bo loentod made neces
sary or advltablo by the construction
or operation of said railway." Cau
anything. Mr. Editor, te plainer. Tho
old grade Mr. McCandless says was
good enough for all bulness purposes
but It was not good enough for the
Rapid Transit Co., a new grade that
Suited tho Rapid Transit Co. was nicely
fixed up between them. Everything for
tho Rapid Transit Co.'s benefit but
nothing for tho unsuspecting commun'
Ity who are afterwards It seems to be
called upon to pay the piper.
And now the government has not
money enough to mako the roads pas
sable by reason of tho damago dons
them by the Company. Truly this Is a
pretty state of affairs for a city to he
brought to. Previously we had streets
the Superintendent says were good
enough for nil business purposes but
not good enough for the Rapid Transit
Co. Now wo have streets good enough
for the Rapid Transit Co. but not for
any one else. Query: Is tho Rapid
Transit Co. everybody or Is tho publto
Interested In their own roads when
they want to use them? I do not see
how Mr. McCandless oven with all the
gall be Is given credit for can come be
fore tho public and say that the gov
ernment has to bear the expenses of
doing any work to mako a pretty grade
for the Rapid Transit Co. Tho section
Is as plain as words can mako It that
thecompauy shall pay for any repairs
to the street made necessary or ad
visable by reason of the construction
of said railway, and 1 am suro any of
the unfortunates who have had tho
misfortune to drive along any street
where they have made their lines will
bear me out In Baying that their lines
as they exist today nro a Btandlng
mouument and shining example of offi
cial favoritism nnd coiruptjon. Tho
legislative committee on the Pall con
tract aio dead right. This gentleman
should bo if moved from his present
posltlun and let some one else be ap
pointed In his stead who will compel
this tompany to do tho work which
rightfully belongs to It. Llllha street
alone cannot be put ripnt ror puunc
tiafflc for less than $10,000, whilst twice
that sum will not put Wilder avenue
and I.unalllo street so that the public
