HAWAII AND CALIFORNIA'S
The more distant the Legislature
of the Tcriltory of Hawaii can keep
fiont resolutions hnvlng to do with
tho affairs of tho Pacific Coast In re
lation to tho Japanese question, tho
better It will be for the Territory of
Hawaii and the Jupaneso troubles of
tho Pacific Coast.
A resolution from Hawaii on this
subject, would be a gratuitous mlx-up
In a matter that Is none of Hawaii's
Among tho people foremost in rals.
Ing the antl-Jnpancso rumpus on tho
Pacific Const, tho Hawaiian Islands
arc considered more as an Oriental
colony than a community of free and
Independent citizens. This Is of
course wrong. The Impression Is so
strong, however, thnt any participa
tion by this Territory In these affairs
of the Pacific Coast would bo as a
brand added to the burning of the
red-headed radicals lu California, No.
vuda, and Pacific States generally.
A resolution from tho Territory of
Hawaii on tho Japanese question
could very easily and probably would
be the signal for tho labor unions and
exclusion leagues to compile an array
of figures that would point to Hnwail
as u horrible example of Japanese
domination, and add fuel to the fire.
Hawaii could stand all this and
not feel It, but what possible good

tho President, tho Administration or
Hawaii Is not afraid of the Japan
ese, nnd never has been ns long ns
Pearl Harbor Is to bo defended, Im
migration Is to bo secured from other
sources, nnd the American Nation
continues powerful. nvcrybody
knows this. How, then, may Ha
waiian legislators help the Adminis
tration by endorsing Its stand for full
treaty rights for the Japanese?
Tho Territory of Hawaii has
enough to do In attending to Its own
business that will come before the
Legislature. Our people have much
less cause to "mix It" with California
and Nbvada on the Japaneso question
than California nnd Nevada would
have to pass resolutions dealing with
the domestic troubles of this Terri
tory. California and Nevada are sov-,
erctgn States. Hawaii Is a Territory.
It there Is anything to show that
action on tho part of our Legislature
would do the Nation or tho Pacific
States any good, let tho resolutions
bo passed thick and fast.
There Is nothing at present to In
dicate that, an expression from the
Hawaiian Legislature would accom
plish any other purposo than mako
tho agitation more lively, nnd un-n
Tho President is counselling a cs
Fatlon of the agitation. He Is not
looking for support from those un
able to add one Jot or title to tim
pacification of the ugltators of Cali
fornia. Abraham Lincoln was a believer In
government of, by, and for tho peo
ple, and those In Hawaii who assume
to shout Lincoln's praises the lou-1-est
are doing their utmost to discred
it such government In Hawaii. So
there nro still small hypocrites hang
ing on tho wheels of progress.
It Is clear from Delegate Kuhlo's
remarks on the coffee tariff that the
tnrlff-for-revenie policy Is popular,
nnd will prevail.

TWO SOCIAL CLUBS

It Is stated that nt tho annual meet
Ing of thy Pacific Club held, recently
a .resolution wns passed to nppolnt a
committee to deal with this matter.
Tho Idea evidently Is that ono largo
social club would meet tho demands
of tho tonn.
It Is understood that representatives
of each of tho clubs mentioned will
meet to discuss tho matter and deter
mine wltt'llier unlttlng tho two organ
izations will bo feasible. Tho propo
slllon seems to have had Its origin In
tho fact that there nro upwards of
thlrty-flo members of thu Pacific Club
who are also members of tho Univers
ity, and tho question of whether it is
practical to maintain two clubs with
tho cxpenslvo cfpilpment that will ho
recessnry to keep them up to the
stnndard of housing and surroundings

has not come before tho University
