MR. HARTWBLL, GOVfiRNMENT
The only positive evideuce furnished
the public that Governor Dole Is get
ting tired of the worries of his office
Is the publication by A. H. Hurtwcll of
his views favorable to county or muni
clpal organization. It has been pre
dicted that this course, would be taken
by Mr. Hartwcll and his associates
when Mr. Dole's power began to wans
or ho went out of office.
This prediction was mado on tho very
good basis of Mr. Haitwell's and
his associates' enthusiasm for In
dependent local government when
', they were convinced of Mr.
Dole's defeat, an their sudden turn
over to u position of opposition when
Mr. Dole finally came out on top
through "sentiment" of President Mc
Klnlcy. Whlo tho light holds out
to bum tho vilest sinner may leturn.
Consequently the new light that has
dawned upon Mr. Hartu ell's political
r.oul Is gratifying whatever causes have
brought It about.
, In tho course of his confession of
'i . faith on local self-government. Mr.
i Hartwcll regrets that tho people and
' j parties who disagree with his methods
h . at thought and action can find nothing
'. good In tho administration of tho gov
X eminent In Its present form, This !i
St" worthy of consideration, serious con
jjw flderattou and a fair answer,
'L,' " '" worl,l' "' iwrtlculnr noto that
'Mr. Hartvvell himself offeis no more
'' "forcible apology for present adminis
tration of public affairs than a general
,. Impression Hint It Is ."not so bad."
' " . '
The dissatisfaction, widespread and
positive, with the conditions that exist
today Is duo almost solely to the lack
of expansive, progressive force lu tha
administration for which Governor
Dole stands sponsor. Annexation
coupled with tho splendid history of
all other American Territories brought
nlth It high hopes for the futie, the
Immediate future. Hopes for speedy
response to the sentiment nnd wishes
of the people, hopes for rapid develop
ment from old restricted conditions to
the new llbeinllzed and broad gauged
facts of government that characterize I
the American Union, Annexation
promised the people the bread of Inde
pendent thought nnd action; they got
the same old ollgarchle-il stone with nil
Its time worn arguments. Tho name
was changed, the conditions remained
and still remain practically the tame.
Not alone this. When Mr. Hnrtwell
and his associates saw that the person
nel was safo In their hands, they wcro
the first to cast a slur upon, to scoff at
the forms and methods of American
government. Through their accepted
newspaper organs they pictured the
American city ns the hotbed of corrup
tion unworthy of emulation and pro
ducing only high tnxes and Iniquity.
They characterized all Americans com
ing to these Islands, n carpet-baggers;
they charged the native Hawaiian
vlth being Incapable of self-govern
ment -nnd merely exlstlng-to reap spoils
or kill a haole. I'pon themselves
alone they placed tho crown of politi
cal virtue and personal Intergrlty.
These are the facts. Mr. Hartvvell can
publish a denial but he can't dispute
the record. The attack was led by
Thurston & Co. "one of whom Hart
well Is which." and now having got
the worst of It In party primaries, be
fore the people and In the Legislature
they first fawn before nnd then con
demn the newcomer, today call the na
tives foots and tomorrow appeal to na
But when It comes to results the
products of this governmental condi
tion that It Is "not so bad," what has
Mr. Hartvvell to offer? Where Is the
evidence that there hat been nn ener
getic grasp of the situation on the part
of the executive depnitment. nn exhibi
tion of the progressive force that car
ries things forward, promptly, over
coming obstaclis but alnn8 moving
forward? Where Is the product that
shows active fone of character and
determination to advance or at least
keep pace with the spirit of the times?
Take the public schools. Are they
like tho old government, the best on
earth' According to Superintendent
Atkinson's report they are and he did
li. but many capable educator bnvej
inougni anu aim miiiK quue ine con
trary. The educational department Is
In a rut of supreme conceit. It Is not
a disgrace to the countiy but It Is not
what It ought to be. what It might bo'
with forceful energy behind It rather
Take tho Health Department. In six
days Goil created the heavens and tho
earth; W. O. Smith mado tho Board
of Health. And n mote cumbersome,
complicated system can hardly bo lmn-1
glned. Any man or men who can suc-l
(cssfully conduct the Hoard of Health!
under Its piesent system and multitude
of business responsibilities Is a grade
above mankind of this earth. Mr. Hart-
writ uuNKrii wuu i iieuy imu mi- in-i
fane Asyiuni, lor insianre, snouio
properly be controlled by a separate
Board of Trustees; that an Immense
amount of business nnd executive ad
ministration Is thrown upon the Board
of Health that should be In the hands
of special and sepaiate boards of con
trol or trustees.
Thn there Is the prison and refor
matory system. Can Mr. Hartwcll dud
snvthlng to equalit outside tho South
ern States which are accepted through
out the I'nlon as being In n medaeval
condition In this paitlcular matter.
And the Public Works department.
It might be far worse. It might spend
money more ruthlessly nnd with less
results. It has done nn Immense
amount of work gauged by the stan
dards of ten years ago, but it has
failed to grasp tho present situation,
A man on horseback doesn't need In
struction from a civil engineer to con
vince him of that fait.
The same power hns been, behind de
partmental operations for a full eight
years. The people seek to move ahead.
Has tho power moved? Isn't It the
same old story of ponderous delibera
tion year after year that uppronches
stngnntlon. when cnnsldeied with re
gard to the demands of the hour? If
thero Is notable vim, business like
ginger or get-up-and-gct behind this
executive administration Mr. Hartwcll
or anybody elso will confer n favor
highly appreciated on nil sides If he
will point to It.
If the Governor who was In former
days nml still Is the power will vvnke
up and push things, put n Yankee
spring In the bootheel of his depart
ments, stop playing pol'tlcs nnd get to
work; If Mr. Hartwcll and his asso
clutCB will leave their Jiammers and
their hatchets at homo when they go
out In search of harmony, wo aio dis
posed to believe and are Indeed con
fident that contentment will reign
and the Govornor live In peace; Am
ericans will not be ashamed nf the
men who cried loudest for annexation
and Mr. Hnrtwell will be saved tho
dlRtiessIng task of writing southing
epistles to tho populace whom his
friends Inform us thiougli their news
papers Is an Irresponsible rabble.

MUSIC UNDER DIFFICULTIES.
The band concert nt "the hotel
grounds last evening was Interrupted
lu a most exasperating manner by the
fnlluro of the lights. The.' electricity
failed Just as the program was about
tn begin. The current would leturn,
eliciting the npplause of tho crowd.
When Ilorgcr's musicians were In the
midst of somo difficult bar, away would
go tho lights and tho notes of the or
chestra would dlo away In darkness.
ThlB gamo of hide and seek, between
the music and tho light, was played for
over an hour.
