Wo recommend the statement of
Governor l'rcnr on tho amendmenti
proposed for the Organic Act. to the
careful perusal of every B u 1 1 o 1 1 n
The bill Introduced, by Senator
l'llnt on which hearings ,woro hold
by the committee, before the people,
uf Hawaii Knew nnjthlng of the bill
oi Its scope, Is. of the utmost Impor
tance to the people of .thls'Tcrrltory.
.The stenographic report of tho hear
ing will be published In full, and
i tin In short sections, that the casual
render may not become frightened at
tho extreme length nnd, passing It
over till a more convenient season,
Tho method pursued In Introduc
ing this bill Is utterly opposed to
good policy. The pcpplc have known
In a go'nernl way that the Organic
Act needed nmendment In many par
ticulars, but they wore Ignorant of
the fact that tho general, amendment
proposed by this bill was' to be forced
through at the presentsesslon of Con
gress. They wera also In absolute
Ignorauco at tho time thjs bill was
Introduced, qfjhpvv far Its provisions
upset present conditions or threaten
ed dnngcrous governmental upheav
als. Governor Frcnr evidently believed
that he was called upon to go ahead
without consulting anyone but tho
executive officers In Washington, and
.securing the consent of the .Delegate.
The Governor has a penchant for
this method of doing public business,
Sooner or later It will get him into
disfavor. If It has not already done
In the present Instance, tho cltl

On gcnernl principles, the motbod
can be overlooked, (or ono occasion It
gi cater Injury would be dono In tho
long run by forcing. a delay. Tho
Hit 1,1 e tin thoroforo gives the
statement of the Governor In full de
tall In order Ihnt evory reader may
decide for himself on tho wisdom of
what Is proposed In tampering with
the Organic law.
This paper docs not ngrco with the
opinion that Important legislation
for Hawaii must ,be "sneaked"
through because Hawaii know Its
own mind so little tbaUipadwny can
not bo made. Legislation mndo In
hasto leaves the people almost Inva
riably to repent at leisure. If pro
posals aro made for changes In tho
laws that meet the general opposi
tlon of tho people, those changes
should not bo made.
Ours should be and must be n gov
ernment of tho people not tho pco
nlo governed by n few who think
thoy know best what the common
hen! should have.
Head this Organic Act amendment
proposition and read It carefully. It
