WEDNESDAY JUNE 20, 1901
California won't even prick up Its
cars to listen to the annexation talk
which Thurston discovers as a con
spiracy. Had a few of theso Torurth of July
forethoughts been expressed eight
weeks ago, Honolulu might hae had
a celebration worthy the naTiic."
Attorney Tom Fitch Is tho kind of a
nun that makes Thurston stutter with
the result that the organ Is ordered t)
turn Us squirt gun In Fitch's direc
tion. Tho Juries that comlctcd the Japan-1

finds that thla Is a United j5tati'. law
and It extends to Hawaii. When nidi

Judge Little did Indeed go lo Wash

micssful In securing ivuit hlb J..n's

'.ur Hawaii than did .hj whole llar.l
vII combination put together.
Church members of Honolulu of all
tcliglous faiths are urged to carefully
peruse the remarks of the Sheriff
Parson Pearson who Is enforcing the
liquor law of Maine. It Is good for
souls to study tho tc tarks of a minis
ter who has the courage of his conlc
tlons even when talking to members'
of his own church. i
Now that tho Adcrtlscr Is able to
give to the peoplo of Hawaii the details
of the conspiracy to rob the Territory
of Its entity and merge It Into tho
State of California, the mission of tho
branded Jurist, who wus thought to be
urged only by self-piotectlon, stands
out with fuller slcr.lflcance. Aderj
Now ain't that awful!
ANNEXATION FARCE. f
Hawallans naturally take up the
California annexation proposition be
cause thoy have had enough of an
nexation. Tho Thurston organ takes
It up because Thurston thinks ho see's
something In It to boost up his fool
ish uttack ucalnst Judge Humphreys.
'Ihurston will probably Ihe to see the
beautiful trap he has fallen Into and
given another opportunity to gnush his
teeth In Impotent rage.
That the Thurston oigan should deal
seriously with tho California annexa
tion thought first suggested by Presi
dent David Starr Jordan, shows to
what lengths tho Thurston crowd Is
driven to save the Par Association
from the Ignominy of Its childish
lamblike following of Thurston in his
wild effort to vent personal spite
against Judge Humphreys.
As a matter of fact the possibility of
Hawaii being annexed Jto any SUite as
a county or counties l nonsense. Dr.
Jordan having been the guest of Thurs
ton the public Is ready to'beltcvo that
the thought bad Its origin In the
Thurstonlan brain, and that tho line
of attack now followed Is merely on
of thoso devious ways of trying
lo cover his own chicanery.
If the Idea was original with Dr. Jor
dan. It demonstrates how an outsider
views the success of the government
for which Governor Dole stonds spon
sor. Hawaii must Indeed be In pretty
bad straits from a governmental stand.
point when an Independent citizen of
tire Mainland sees no other wayeout of
the tangle than annexation to a Main
Jand State. Sucli a step would bo radi
cal, It possible, and opposed to every
American precedent bearing upon State
or Territorial organization. The last
chango made In State organization was
carried out In the Stato of Dakota.
There tho State was not enlarged by
the addition of new counties through
annexation of territory hitherto a part
of Montana, Wyoming, Minnesota or
Nebraska. Dakota was divided Into
two States or lis the organ mjght put
It, tho people of Dakota with malico'ot
forethought "doubled their offices," es
tablished two State organizations In
place of one, decentralized the power of
the State and also doubled their
strength In Congress..
Oklahoma Territory furnishes nnoth.
cr Instance. The peoplo of tho old In
dian Territory were not taken Into the
Texas fold nor tacked onto Kansas.
They secured a territorial organiza
tion which, though less complete
than the Organic Act granted Hawaii,
they now seek to havo raised to the
standard of Statehood.
These facts, the Thurston organ loses
sight of. It sees only Humphreys and
possibility of a more liberal franchise.
Humphreys and a liberal franchise
have only to be suggested to make tho
Thurston organ froth nt the mouth.
If the Dole administration with Its
Jong record of errors iind foolish con-
tentlons wcro to last forever, the peo
ple might think seriously of associat
ing themselves with Bumo established
State. But the Dole government record
has been made, Its term of office Is not
far from tho end, and In tho future It
Is safo to say the President will makn
his appointments with a view to serv
ing the best Interests of the Nation and
the Territory rather than tho fulfill
ment of a passing "sentiment." ' Ha

ISU8INE88 8EN8E DEMANDED
The Territorial Treasurer Is tho chb'f
advocate of tho necessity for a special
session to provide rcvenuo for the Ter
ritory. Tho voters ask no belter au
thority when the Treasurer bucks vt
bis assertion with cold figure which
show the Territory to be heading dlicct,
towards bankruptcy as welt as a com
plete suspension of public works.
The dcslro of tho Executive to con
tinue doing politics und play tno
Thurston game to throw all responsi
bility upon the Legislature Is mado
plain. The treasury may pay out Its
last dollar, public work may stop, cut
ployes of tho government may bo
forced to discount their drafts and tho
money changers reap the reward, what
does tho Executive care? Thurston'n
plans must bo carried out. This Is what
the stand of the Executhe amounts to
although It will doubtless bo denied
with vigor, and tho denial nmoun's to
nothing when viewed by facts:
Should the Executive persist nt Its
refusal for n special session It con
tinues Its ride for another tall. The
Executive may declare that It has no
confidence In the Legislature, but It
will discover that the Executive word
Is not law.
If the question beforo tho people wcro
i matter of politics, the enemies of the
Executive could nsk nothing bettcrthaa
its present stand. While tho present
Treasurer Is In office he wilt not lend
himself to any makeshift or question
able measures that may bo urged upon
mm uy nn uSKreBni.un iiuiiiihcu x
dishonest moth es. An empty treasury!
Is the most for.vful argument .
mat can be onereu in any campaign.
and although Thurston and the Lxecu-1
vc might cry on tho streets day after
l,-,lay "tho Leglsiatu.o is responsible,"
there stands the fact of no funds in th
treasury and the Executive's refusal
to call upon tho Legislature for rove
nuo measures. The Executive or Thur
ston might threaten, squirm on their
bellies or go to Bleep, they cannot evado
or mislead tho people as to tho fact.
The voters of the Territory, ivl
ness men and workingmen demand
business administration not politics
from the Executhe and the I.eglsla
tnrc. The special session and revenue
measures are not political In any
hense of tho word. Whatever branch of
the government uses them to such a
purpose will be repudiated by
people anu snow liseit wormy
supreme contempt with which honest
men view tho work of officers who
evade their plain duty in tho hope of
scoring a political point.
It Is apparent that the Treasurer
does not hold tho same opinion of thn
Legislature that Is expressed In the
attitude of tho Chief Executive and
Thurston. Tho Treasurer stands ready
to do his plain duty. Why should tho
Chief Executive, continue a campaign
of horse play?
Should the Legislature In special ses
sion commit all the political sins
charged by tho Executlvo and Thurs
ton the LeglslnOre alono must bear
the responsibility and suffer the pen
alty accordingly. Until such time as
these sins are committed tho burden of
Incompetence rests upon Executive
Grand Jury Report.-
Even tho Advertiser commends tho
zeal and patience of tho Grand Jury
which Investigated the charges of bri
bery against the Hawaiian Legislature.
Still, as the Advertiser sadly and re
luctantly admits the Grand Jury
couldn't find any evidence to substanti
ate tho charges upon which tho Investi
gation was based. It Is Indeed an un
happy day for the Advertiser and Its
supporters when they cannot find In
tho eye of their friends, tho enemy, the
beam which they go out deliberately
hunting for, and we sympathize with
them deeply. Wo sympathize the mora
In their Inovltablo shame at the
thought that one of tho last and per
haps one of the-most Idiotic and In
sane acts of their Governor's official
career was to charge with tho gravest
offense upon the slightest basis, that
of his own Imagination, a collateral
branch of the Territorial Government;
for that he did this Is evidenced by bis
own statement when questioned by
the Grand Jury. Tho Advertiser still
makes the pitiful attempt to cover his
disgraceful retreat by vague and gen
eral phllosophlzlngs upon tho nature of
tho bribery and tho difficulty Involved
In Its detection, not recognizing the
fact that for this very reason tho Gov
ernor should havo been ,suro of bis
ground before he made thoso plain, do
liberate and unqualified statements of
legislative corruption which he alleged
were sufficient to Justify him In refus
ing to authorlzo an extra session. These
plain, unvarnished statements, the
Advertiser (with Its usual propensity
for Indulging In sentiments which ap
pear humorous to everybody except It
self), terms "a remark dropped by Gov
ernor Dole." That official certainly did
drop a remark and It fell with a very
loud thud, not missing tho dropper's
toes In Its descent. The next remark
which tho worthy executive drops will
probably havo a Btrlng attached, so
that he can stop It beforo It drops too

Reviewed by New York.
New York, Juno 4. President Have
mcycr, of the American Sugar Refin
ing Co., today declared tho statement
ho was about to resign from tho presi
dency has no foundation In fact.
"I Intend to remain at the head of the
American Sugar Hcflnlng Co.," said he,
"I have never given the question of
resignation any scrioiiH thought."
The directors of the American Co.
met today and declared the regular
quarterly dividend of l?i per cent on
the common stock, and 14 per cent
cm so much of tho preferred stock as Is
entitled to quarterly dividends.
The advance, of 5 points In tho stock
yesterday was due to tho report that a
quarterly dividend of 2 per cent would
hn declared, and tho action of the direc
tors in maintaining the old rate de
veloped a selling movement that caused
a drop from 1G1V4 to 11G4.
The closing sale was made at 147U, n
net loss of I ',4 points as compared with
yesterday's final prlcn.
A Wall street news agency came out
today with a statement that Arbucklg
Pros, had made a cut of 10 cents per
100 In all soft sugars. It Is understood
this cut was made last Friday. Tho
statement Is made that n number of re
finers nre quietly meeting tho cut mado
by Arbuckle, and that a general re
duction to C.50 before the rloso of this
week Is more than likely.

"When the Jobbers camo to me and

them to grsb up as much sugar nt 15

and ho restored tho prlceOO cbnts per
