WHENCE THE CONVICTION?
The Advertiser publishes nn Inter
view this morning pui porting to ex
press the views of officials of tho gov
ernment, "who nre convinced that
there can be no extra session."
Whence the conviction?
Is it true that the Chief Exccutlvo
refuses to call the Legislature In spe
cial session In spite ot the statement
of the Treasurer that the present
courso leads to practical bankruptcy?
Can It be that the Chief Executive
harbors the vain hope of throwing tho
political responsibility for the shortage.

thus making political gamo ot the dis

Jury to tho Territory' and tho party
which the, Chief Executive represents.
An exccutUo expression ot want of
confidence In tho Legislature amounts
to no moro than a similar expression
against the Executive. Every depart
ment of tho government Is Judged by
results, not excuses. Can our Chief
Executive be blind to the opinion ot
the American people should a President
refuse to call Congress In extra ses
sion to provide revenue for a depicted
national treasury .because tho President
had no confidence In Congress? Tho
President guilty of such foolishness
would be laughed to scorn and his
party repudiated at the polls. The
same fate awaits tho Chief Exccutlvo
and his party In Hawaii If the Execu
tive persists'. In bis refusal to call a

This follows the reorganization

railways in the District of Columbia
only two years ago. AC.tluit.tlme a
capital was created ot $12,000,000, of

lowed up by a bond Issue to complete
work ot $20,000,000. Ot this sum $13,
442,000 was subscribed for. It bears
Interest at four and one half per cent.
It was tbo default In the payments!
this Interest that caused the receiver
to be appointed. As the companies
were placed on what was said to be a
sure footing only so recently, the non
payment of nny Interest on tbo ordl
nary stock and tho default on the bond
