GOVERNMENT BY CGMMlSSlON NOT FOR HAWAII.
Tin- periodical cry ot Quvcriimcnt
liy C'uimulsalou for llnwnll has been
lencwed. Willi what purpose, on tlio
' .irt ot Its local advocates, is obvious.
To wlint effect, the InlcRrlty ot
I .American principles and tlio patriot-
iein ot Aincilcan people will deter-
Tlio assertion la made that tlio
Scluoedor Hoard In sizing up tlio fu
ture of the defense ot tills Island und
Pearl Harbor lias declared that In n
very short tlnto the controlling volo
oftthe Territory will be in the hands
ot the Japanese-Americans; alto that
tlio otlng power ot tho Territory Is
now In tlio hands of the least respon
sible clement. Tlicieforc, It Is not
likely to be safo to leave tho govern
ment of the Territory of Hawaii In
the hands of its people; thereforo
Kin eminent of, by, and for the people
should perish from that portion of
tho eartli designated as the Territory
That rends like a letter from homo
to 'criminal reactionaries leprcscnted
by the morning paper, which has
done Its utmost from the outset, to
defeat popular government In the
Islands and discredit, defame, nnd
tra'duco the voting population, rather
than attempt to develop self-respecting
manhood nnd fair play In govern
ment. Against this alleged declaration of
tho Schroedcr Hoard wo have that of
' U'U Governor ot tlio Territory, mado
during ono ot Ills trips nbroad, that
Hawaii hns no Japanese problem.
, Opposed to It Is tlio excellent icc
; ortl of the Territory, so far as tho
legislative bodies elected by tho peo
ple are concerned a record that will
compare favorably with any Stuto or
Territory of tho Union and far sur
passes that of any American Terri
tory of equal j ears under tho Flag.
Arrncd in opposition to this falso
Idea ot American government Is tlio
expel lence of tho Nation that It can
nnd has mado first-class Americans of
every race ami people on tho face of
.the earth, after having put them
thiough the American common
bclmols and developed them under tho
beneficent Influence of American en
vironment. (overumrut by Commission iiilgKt

'X Colonialism, pure mid simple, without
it slngln redeeming quality to far as
paving America from tho alleged
danger fiom the Japanese und Japan-

Government by Commission would
put, n rapid quietus to tlio project of
populating tho Islands with Ameri
cans from tho mainland.
You don't find Americans leaving
Bclf-govornlng, independent, self-rc-"opectlng
communities to take up their
nbodo under a worto than, monarchi
cal form of government not unless
, thoy bco n fortune In It und a pros
pect of leeching tho placo nnd malt
, ing u speedy get-away. Somo one
'f will say. "Thoy live In Washington,
don't they?" forgetting that tho
Washington, D. C resident has tho
privilege ot going to his nativo State
Government by Commission means
mi cud of tho Industrial protection
Hawaii enjoys In consequence of Its
equality with all other Territories ot
Mho country, as distinguished from
Government by Commission as out
lined In tho leuctlon'aiy organ comes
us near to military oligarchy as any
thing can an Insult to tho citizen
population ot tho Islands; nnd not
tho slightest gain to safety ot tho
i' ..National .Interests.

TUB PACIFIC CltOSSItOADS.
Tlio "Evening Hulletln" of Honolulu,
Territory of Hawaii, did itculf proud
on July 1G with a fortj-pago edition
eb a greeting to (ho battleship (lect.
Newspaper greetings hnvo been com
mon an along the courso thus far
traversed by tho great llect. but tills
ono has tho special vuluo of coming
Irom tho Crossroads of the Pacific.
That Is a cry good placo for nn Ainct-
lean licet to expect u homo greeting
and to recclvo It.
Tho "Hulletln" printed n map of tho
Pacific which proves tho truth of its
boast that Hawaii Is the crorsioads of
that ocean. No matter from what
point of tho various coasts bordering
that great ocean you Htm t, If your
courso Is laid for a point nway off on
tho other side and fairly opposite to
our point of departure, tho Ameilcau
Tcnllory of Hawaii Is bound In bo
met with nt very neaily tho mlddlo of
tho long Journey. All tho unmarked
highways over that great sea meet
nnd cross each other at Hawaii. Krom
Valparaiso to Vlndlwntock, fiom Peru
to Jupin, fiom Vancouver to Now
South Wales, from San Francisco to
Manila, It Is nil tho samo; Hawaii In
tho half-way placo of call on all these
roads and many mom; and tho Ihig
llsli and Ceruian maps bring out this
fact Just lis plainly ami Inevitably as
tho "HiillotliiV map.
This Is u fact thai wilt stay, too, for
nalurn Iiiih made It h, with the great
sea all about, and wllh tho HawailHii
Islands almost exactly In tho center.
Many lauds arc washed by those Pa
cific waters; many political divisions
border upon that gieat sea; tho Hugs

Tho "Honolulu Hulletln" did well
to make its map in greeting of our
ships, and thoroby to hi lug before ev
ery nttontho cso tho elements con
cerned In working out tho momcmoiiu
problem of the Pacific ocean.
Tho "lltilletlii" of our frontier ten
post In tho Pacific adds to Its ,11,011
somo sagacious words. Wo cannot ie
produce them nil; but hero Is one pas
sage: Honolulu's nlohn to tlio Atlantic
fleet is tho sincere expression of ,
n community of American clllrcns
who not only loe the ling and nil
that It represents, hut also fully
understand what n great navy
moans to the United States. Wo
nro enthusiastic out thu llect be
cause It In (lie expression of long
headed, 'cofumonsensu American
statesmanship. Auicrlcn'H con

continued to grow AnicilcniiH In
Hawaii nro on the border. They
urolln the midst of things. They
have brought dally nnd limit ly t"
their attention the fuels nnd de
velopments of the world's prog
ress that, he who runs may read.
America limy raise tho greatest
armies the world has ccr seen.
It may build up false hopes on tho
commanding Influence of Its tre
mendous wealth. It may boast ot
its ability to com luce the wmh!
that wars should ccoso. It may
preach nil the doctrines it i-lwsei.
Hut without a great navy to net
the part of a peac-prescncr nil
the vaunted power of aiml",
wealth and beautiful theories nro
hollow shams exploded In n twink
ling by n careless or Intentional
match In tho powder magazine of
international affairs. 1
Tho responsibilities of duty must bo
supported by tho Instruments of nev
er. This country hai a great many
things to take caic of. Ono might ns
well say that tho true rule Is n sound
mind In an unsound body ns to nay
that tho higher the national Meals tho
more n nntlon should be without rliyi
Ical power. Tho tiuth Is exnetly the
opposite. Wo acknowledge this truth
In tho cato of our clllcs, Tlio moio
people thoy contnln. the more prop
erly they possess, the larger and moro
efficient police force wo piovlde to
irotect both people and property. Put
when the uatlounl boun.larlei nri
icached somo minds flatly mid obsti
nately change this universal tulc. "No
ships of war," they any; or at tiny
rate nn ships of war commensurate
with our national position and nation
al rcsponslblitius. It is absurd to bo
Ilevo that what Is true of the Individ
ual man nnd' of the wealthy clt;; Is
not equally truo of tho collection ot
men nnd collection of cities that make
the nation. '
If wo do not need a strong nnd
thoroughly representative navy be
cause we aro not incddlcMiino or quar
relsome or covetous In regard to other
nations, wo certainly do need such a
navy becauso wo uro bo peaceful unit
so good. Pcai'o nnd goodness des'ervo
to hau n fair chance In tho woild;
nnd In order to secure a fair chanco
for those Inestlmnblo qualities thoy
must bo backed up by physical force.
Wo are g)nd that Hawaii Is In tho mld
dlo of the Pacific things, nnd that Its
Americans are not flabby or hollow
chested. Tho Creator of all things
mado tho nuucles hs well as the con
science: and It Is Indeed n imor und
feeble and btuplil country that does
not train nnd strengthen both.
