TROUBLE AT PANAMA
Tlie summons uf .Minister Squlers,
our rcprcscntathe nt Panama, to
confer with the President anil Secre
tary Hoot Is another evlilcnco of tho
manifold troubles the country has
encountered In Its effort to hold sis
ter republics within reasonable
The election of a President for tho
Ilepubllc of Panama Is to tako place
some time In July and tho contest ,
for the high position Is becoming so
bitter that our Government may have i
to Interfere Associated Press illr
patches picture the Panama situa
tion as similar to that which existed
In Cuba before tho second Interven
tion. This must mean that there ato
not enough offices to go around, and
our Central American friends are
therefore much perturbed.
No doubt the trials of keeping the
small but Important republics alive
cause our National leaders to feel
that the easiest way out Is to absorb
them and have It done with. Tho
country has not jet reached the
point, howover, where It Is willing to
seriously consider bo serious a diver
sion from our national policy of pa
MAIL. SUBSIDY PLANK.
The proposal to Incorporate a mall
subsidy plank In the National Repub
lican platform is a much more sensa
tional feature of the party program
for the coming campaign than n
blanket exclusion declaration against
the lower-class Oriental laborer.
Exclusion Is not new to National
party platforms. Since Chinese ex
clusion became a national political
necessity, the probability of a strict
i rule against nil laborers of the Ori
ent has steadily Increased, partlcu
,. larly on account of the growing pow
er of organized labor.
The mall-subsidy fight, although
as old as Senator Frye's service in
the halls of Congress, has been ono
that has lacked a straightforward
support from a united party. Year
in and year out the' foreign ship
owners' lobby and tho Interior
statesmen have played with the sup
porters of the American merchant
marine, and each year has recorded
the disappearance of more American
ships from the ocean-carrying trade
Platform planks have been plati
tudes, resulting, as Intended, In no
Of late, the struggle to support at
least a mall line In tho Atlantic and
the Pacific has been given every pro
mlse..of success, but failed at tho last
With tho Republican party clearly
on record for the mall-carrying sub
sidy, tho Issue will bo brought fairly
before tho people. And this will fur
nish another good reason why the fu
ture of the country and of Hawaii In
particular is best served by the suc
cess of the Republicans unless tho
Democrats should have the good
sense to join In n platform plank of
the same tenor and mako It unani
mous. EUROPEAN IMMIGRATION CAUSE.
Commissioner Wheeler Is preaching
the doctrine of European Immigra
tion without ceasing to his fellow
citizens of tho West Coast. A few
days ago his friends of San Francisco
tendered a congratulatory dinner to
the Commissioner and tho following
paragraphs epitomized tho burden of
his message to the men on whom
rests the responsibility for tho futuro
of Western America:
"A false impression prevails as to
, the character and nature of tho class
.. of Immigrants that find their way to
this country. It is only a small mi
nority that represent the criminal
"The-majority of the foreigneis
that come here aro tho flowers of
their countries. They are the youths
who want to better themsolvcs anil
tbey come largely from tho class that

upon this element the future devel
opment of this undeveloped western
United States depends.
