Tbo people kciu uiitlieh Justified
In calling a bull until the) eould

and what is In contemplation They
are standing In their own light if
the) tome to a permanent standstill
From the obseivntion of public ben.
tlnient made by this piper, tbo only
sections to which there Is serious ob
jection at tbe present time are. those
dealing with the public lands and the
sweeping piolslons that uxtept Ha

Tlie proposed amendments of the.
land laws are In line with tbo recom
mendations of the special uilvlsoi)

Goernor If the Legislature bad not
tuken action on the land question
there would set in to bo no particular
renson wh) the amendments mapped
out b) this commission should not
cuny tbrougb without further refer
ence to the Leglslatuie of Hawaii.
It should be recalled, however,
and many appear to buu forgotten
It that the Legislature or 1807 piss
td a joint resolution providing for a
Land Commission to iere without
pay, investigate the stutus of the
land laws, and lepoit to the (lover.,-
oi not later than lul) 1, 190S, such
report to Include nil their recommen

This Joint resolution passed both
bouses of thu LcgUlatuie (iiivernm
Curter treated It to a pocket cto.
Thus Ifwas not legall) binding oi
an) one. Hut It Is obvious that the
r presentathes of the pcoplo of the
Tirrltory of Hawaii were settled In
the opinion that mi) bills dealing
with the administration of tbo public
lands should be presented first to the
Governor Trcai carried out a pait

appointed the AdvUory Land Com
He Ignored u vorj impoitunt do

sltlon of getting bis law passed and
while tbo Leglslatuie whistled
I(ow'0cr, there may )et bo time to
piesent tbo matter to thp Leglslatuie
und secure an expression In time for
Congress to act m postpone, us suits
the Hontlmiut of Hawaii.
Meanwhile let the people move
Though the section of many oxcop-
Ttlons and the land law section may
piove doubtful, the people should
agree on other portions of the bill
nnd say so.
GoSernor Trear Is understood to
fcol that he has not been given the
support he deserved This is to be re
gretted, but It is not the Issue
The desire of tho people Is thu pres
ent unknown quantity that bab to be
demolish n ted. And the dlsagi cement
of somo of them with tho Governor
on certain points Is no good leasou
why anone of caliber should get an
attack of tho sulks or seek repilsals
on citizens who have lefuscd and will
tcntlniie opposed to doing as they
nro told when they believe the volun

In my opinion, the Governor Is tak
Ing mighty chances with his bill If Its
passage depends iion not being able
to Hud two republicans in Hawaii who
will He It's ni) experience that It Is
difficult to find Hint man) republicans
in this Territory who will tell the truth
about public affairs Of course the
truth Is in very man) of them but they
arc careful not to let it out
You can put It down as a pretty safo
guess that the bill will not pass and
tho Democrats claim nil the credit mid
assume all the responsibility for hav
ing kitted it. The Governor handed us
no cholco of weapons The terms
were "Shoot first ami explain after
ward" The Democrat! uro not nfmld
of tho light nnd will be on hand with
explanations at the proper time.

Hut there are members who claim
that Holstein must "come through"

lo get the Republican members to
gether on a general line of policy
although no exact bill ma) be framed
to rise to the dignity of an Admlnls-

sities that are the result of tho chang

What tho Democrats will do Is not
known. They will be more of a fac
