COLONIAL SCHEMES ARE IMPRACTICABLE WILL-0-TH'WISPS
SBSSBHrcT W K
SAYS IT IS PRACTICAL IMPOSSIBILITY
-- "Colonial goTernment for Hawaii Is a phantom a wlll-o'-thc-wisp,"
- snld Oovcrnor Carter yesterday, speaking In an Interview on tbla quos-
Hon. . "
f The Oovcrnor has ben BO frequently quoted on ao many tides of
-f the question, that he was asked to mako a statement for publication, r
-f lie admitted that a Rood share of the quotations wero now and stated
f that, long ago. In a conversation with Senator Foraker on the dlfllcul-
-t- lies of the local situation, the Senator had broached tho possibility of
Colonial Government for Hawaii, and the Governor had responded
f that he did not bellevo the pcoplu would ever accept It willingly.
They were too proud of. tho fact tkat they were an Integral part of
the Union. ,
f In this conversation tho Senator admitted that even It It were do-
alrable, ho was not clear as to the method of procedure. Since then,
on going Into the constitutional phases of the question, the Oovcrnor
4- has put It down aa an Impossibility, and docs not see any advantage
In discussing an Impracticable proposition. .
4- When asked why he had not sat on the Idea from tho outset, and
. refuseto consider, such an overthrow of American Ideals, the Gov- -r
V ernor said:
"Well, I will not refuse to dlscuts any proposition which hat aa Its -t
-f object the bettering of conditions In Hawaii. A discussion does not -t
involve acceptance, and It It only by discussion and Investigation
-f of practicable measures that all can reach a common ground." 4
