WHENCE THIS ORGANIC ACT AMENDING?
Tlio Organic Act ot the Territory
or Hawaii Is 'In process''of nm6nd

If there la any citizen of Hawaii,
now In the Islands, who known what
these amendments nro or how far
reachlun they mu he Itisluplng our
future, he has failed to make himself
All the Information to date Is oh

Tlio Acting Governor has glvon
out extract from Governor ."rear's
letter outlining amendments that ho
Intendcd,to Incorporate in a hill to
amend the act
In this Imlcfltilto detail Khcn out
by the Acting (lovurnor Is contained
u rnllroad-bund-gunranteo provision
which has received the dlsaipioal ot
all but one of the Advisory Land Com
mission. The people generally In the
Territory know nothing of It.
All this business, of the most se
rious and Hal import, to the present
ond future of this Territory, is going
on before the United States Congress
nnd even the copy of the bill, or pre
liminary draft, has not been seen In
What does this mean?
Is this not a rase of thq Territory
of Hawaii being governed, rather
than governing itself?
Isn't there Involved in tho prog
ress of ovents ono of the most sorlotiB
situations thei Territory of Hawaii
has ever faced
WHO WANTS TUB ORGANIC
W1HO CALLED rOIt THE 11A1L
nOADS OF THIS THIUUTORY to bo
put on the basis of tho rallvvnv en
terprises of the PHILIPPINES'
WHEItE does tho command for tho
changes come from, and WHO Is to
pay the flcIJIcr If this guy und merry
dance winds up in such a radical up
heaval of the Organic Act that even
tho Governor will have to admit that
the whole thing has gone farther
than ho expected and he wished he
hadn't gone Into the nlTalr?
Tho question Involved Is a momen
tous ono of public policy.
Tho amendments outlined by Act
ing Governor MoU-Suilth are numer
ous enough to suggest a general re
vision of the Organic Act.
WHO HAS EVER HEARD that
there WAS TO UE a general revision
of our Organic Act AT5THI8 CON
GRESSIONAL SESSION? What bus
iness bodies, what legislative bodies,
what real or assumed representitives
of the people, have been consulted re
garding tho POLICY OR DETAIL Or
A OENERAL REVISION? I
If tho Advisory L.lnd Commission1
ib cited as one consulted. WHY JS
IT that, Included In "this "volunteer
revision Is one of tho provisions to
vthlch each member pf ttin.CommlH
slon, wth one exception? (wa 'op
posed? WHO PUT THAT AMENDMENT
IN THE HILL? And why?
The whole thing, ns It has thus far
proceeded, Is based on wrong meth
ods nnd mistaken Ideas of govern
' So far as this paper is concerned,
the railroad-bonding scheme looks
fairly good on the face of It, except
that the Territory qhbuld ha tho
guarantor of the bonds if tho prin
ciple is to be recognized and adopted.
Hawaii Is not a "uossesslon",
Just nt tho present, time, tho wis
dom or folly of this particular item
ic secondary to the fact that our laws
, aro being made for us nnd wo, the
people, the common herd, the, sub
jects of the regal and viceregal es
tablishment that might be hut wo
thope s nqt" yet don't know nny-
' thing about It. And. according to the
.manner In which the game has been
eplayed up to date are not supposed
i to know, or at least are to bo thu last
i ones Informed and consulted,
, Whether Governor Krcar Is the in
ventgr of this new system of govern
ment we don't know.
i His utterances contrary have been
j such that the II u 1 1 e 1 1 n will not

until all the facts point to him ns thu
man Hut the game is going on nev
ertheless. It should be stoppcl.
The central fact Is that n groat er
lor Is being committed and the soon
er tho people take a hand to check it,
It Is not right that Hawaii should
bo GOVERNED and not have a word
in the GOVERNING.
Call n halt, till the character of
tills bill and the probable resu'ts are
Aro wo of 'llnwnll subjects of n
king, that we nrc given a constitu
tion which is to be amended by those
luarest to the throne and we bo con
sulted last. If at all?
What aro the hvpnotlc Influences
that operate about tho departments
and clubs of Washington, D. C? Wns

Washington nnd returned with a
great enthusiasm over how much bet
