THE GOVERNOR; Tai'MMPLE-AND
Governor Krcnr'St comment, on the
rnpaclty of the people of Hawaii to
deal with their own lands Is the fea
ture of tho Congressional hearing
matter published In this Issue, that
win prouauiy attract the widest at
tention. Senator Foraker put tho question
dliect to tho Governor as to tho nd
viability of taking Hawaii's land'
law constantly to Congress. Why not
havo them passed upon by tho gov.
eminent of Hawaii?
The Governor made the very
prompt answer, that In his. opinion
tho Territory was notsufficiently ad
vanced for this. His reasons appear
to'bo that under complete local con
trol, there would he a too rapid tils

posal of the (public land and possible
trunsfer,lo nllons and speculators.
The Governor may be half right.
but while, the laws are being amend
ed, It would be very proper for the
power of' the executive to be checked.
In .other words, the dangers from
broad executive, discretion arc ns great
as those threatening from the mem
bers of the Legislature passing lands
over to Improper persons and wast'
lug .the substance of the people.
Apparentlv the Governor his seen
a glimmer of new light Blnre he ap
pcared before the committee. A let
ter written at a later date and re
ferred to In the II u 1 1 c 1 1 n of Mon
day announces, that n further amend
ment of the bill has been or will be
offered restricting the executive's
power of cxihnnglng lands. The com
mission whoso consent the Governor
must Becure is to no nnmeu. oy me,
Legislature. This gives the peoplo
at least a veto power over the acts
of llie executive. ,
Taking the history of this Terri
tory by and large, It will not show
that the representatives of the, peo
ple, the Leglslatutbj has made( on,y
greater or more numerous errors than
the executive. Tho public lands
might not be wholly safe In tho hands
of either, but when administered by
both, and fairly well safeguarded, the
record would not be such that need
bring any moro blushes of shame to
the cheek of the citizen than ho has ex
perienced In former jears.
,One thing Is becoming evident In
the career of Governor Frear. Ho
has too much confidence In tho exec
utive nnd not enough in, the. poople.
This Is. a common error of Hnwnl.1,
and one that we need to get away
from If the Territory Is to develop
on traditional American lines.
