How far Mr. Woollcy has been
successful Is nil pure surmise so far
as the cablegram of Prank Thomu
von Is concerned.
What wo do know Is that the pro
hibition agitator In Washington Is
a paid agitator, and he is being paid
by people In the Torrltory of Ha
waii. That these pcopledo not rep
resent the sentiment of tho mnjorlty
in of a fair-sized minority of our
citizens has been demonstrated more
than once by definite and clear-cut
Tho presenco In Washington of
Mr. Woollcy Is a constant menace to
the Territorial stilus of these Is
lands. If he carries his cause, the
end of home rule for Hawaii is In
sight not alone home rule so fan as
counties and parties nnd politics are
concerned, but home rule as regards
policies affecting the plantations and
other enterprises from a pnrt of the
profits of which Mr. Woollcy Is now

THREAT OF FEDERAL CONTROL
(Continued from Page 1.)
preponderance of opinion is strongly
opposed to the Idea of tho Federal
government Imposing n commission
form of government on Hawaii or
Interfering in tho administration of
the liquor law. Tho lews express
ed are us follows:
E. D. Tonney If the people of
this Territory ure ready to give up
the rights and privileges of self-government,
I don't know as it makes
much difference what they 'pass In
Washington; but if thoy nre still
disposed to govern themselves, I am
ery much opposed to the move that
has been suggested regarding the
liquor laws. Hut none of us know
anthlng definite jet.
George P. CastTe Let tho people
of the Islands cxcrclso their privilege
of self-government in a manner to
control the liquor traffic bo that the
nathe Hawallans and the soldiers
shall be saved from Its most evil In
fluences. If our own peoplo da not
do this, I wouldn't answer for the
future and the probability of govern
ment by commission.
W. M. alffard I think If the peo
ple here would tend more to busl-
politics, it would be better for all
concerned nnd they' would hnve no
reason to fear the prospect of gov
ernment by commission. It seems to
me we should lime home into, but
we should rule ourselves right.
Win. Lnnz It Is Impossible for
me to understand why any govern-
nieut should pass n law that would used to have and which was made by

no such outcry as has been urade here pleted; strictly "modern and

the interests of the country, but it KAIMUKI DISTRICT
am, not convinced as jet. I would! They are well located and snaps
rather see prohibition than the
wholesale killing off of Hawallans by
tho ready sale of liquor. Hawaii has
been managed both politically nnd
otherwise In a marked degree of ef
ficiency In tho handling of Territo
rial affairs. The liquor question Is
n world-wldo problem. What we
bavu to do is to get together like
men and root out the evil ourselves.

und the fact thnt in such municipali

the direct vote of the people elimi
nates any objection that the com

The form of commission that pre
sumably would be provided for theso
Islands, however, would not ba rep
resentative In any sense of the Word
The commissioners would be ap
pointed by the President, the great
mass of the citizens and taxpayers

Mr, Judd Is somewhat of on alarmUt
In stating his belief thut a military
commission may be provided for the
Island of Oahu. Whatever may be
the probability of a civil commis
sion being established, It can not
logically be contended that any .con
ditions exist or can reasonably be
anticipated that would warrant the
establishment of military rule here,
Alexander Home Ford Govern
ment by Federal commission Is the
flrst step toward dictatorship. First
the Territories would be governed by
commission; then the States. This
would be a splendid thing for J. P.
Morgan, for the money power would
then control absolutely. Government
by Commission Is but a step toward
making another Mexico of theso
United States In Mexico, President
Dlez appoints nominees for govern
orships und they must be elected.
Humboldt, 100 years ago, predicted
that America would eventually annex
Mexico and then crumble to pieces,
as she would not be able to absorb
the Latin. Today, America, owing
to unrestricted Immigration, 1b be
coming more S'.avo-Latln than Anglo
Saxon. Tho Latin races will submit
to a dictator.
Clurenco Crabbc In my opinion
there Is no immediate fear from a
Government by Commission for Ha
waii. As I understand the matter,
the time may arrive hero within the
next fifteen or eighteen years, as the
large percentage of native-born Jap
anese and Chinese become grown UP
Mid become eligible to the elective
f ranch Uo thut u Government by Com
mission would be desirable. I for
cue would welcome such a govern
ment ut that time, nnd I presume
that there would be very few who.
would caie to reside here under tho
administration by Asiatics. Tho Con
gressmen who visited Hawaii somo
six mouths "ago were,, so I under
stood, bitterly opposed to substitut
ing the commission form of govern
ment for thut which wo now have.
John O. Lane I nm opposod in
every sense of the word that could
be applied to a Government by Com
mission for this Territory. Hawaii
In hei history In the past, under
monarchical, provisional and repub
lic form of government, bus proven
that the people qf these Islands are
well fitted and nblo to conduct the
affairs of Hawaii nel. And we are
now under the Stars and Stripes and
hnve shown thaf. we arc able to man
age nnd conduct tho affairs of pop
uiar government, nnd especially since
annexation, as the Republican party
controls the administration .of the
Territory. I can not see how wej
could possibly , agree arid feel that
n commission government would pro
mote the best Interests of Hawaii nel
politically and commercially. 1 am
always for n government of the peo
ple, by the peoplo and) for tho people,
and In the hope to live! and see lla
wall admitted ns a State.
W. C, Achl I don't want to mako
any statement about tho commission
government without studying' tho sub
ject Intelligently, lt is unwise for mo
to attempt to say something about
the Commission Government without
knowing thoroughly what It means.
It Is true that I am Interested In the
wclfnro of tho government, but as the
Commission Government Is a new
thing to us hero, It Is proper to study
the subject -first before making any
Btatcmont for publication. In regard
to the prohibition bill, I will havo to
look It up before I can express my
J. M. Pocpoe, editor of the Ko Aloha
Alna Personally I am opposed to the
Government by Commission. That
form of government Is entirely a new
thing to tho people In Hawaii nel. 1
bellevo tho only snhatlon'for the peo
ple here, In order to prevent the Com
mission Government from controlling
nffnlrs here is to harmonize the polit
ical feeling now In existence between
the party leaders and their1 followers.
All tho political elements here should
be harmonized; that is. there should
bo no party distinction In Hawaii. All
tho voters should bo permitted to" vote
as they please, Wlthbut'comfullort'or
dictation by tho party leaders. If tho
Hawallans would only placo their con
fidence In men who nro possessed of
substantial means the country would
prosper 'more extensively. Let all of
us, lrrcs)cctlvo of our political differ
ences, work for tho common good of
all. Hawaii will then bo safe.
D. Kalauoknlnnl, Sr editor of tho
Kuokoa Homo Hula I am most em
plia'lcally against government by com
mission. In his editorial which amie-ired In
the Kuokoa Homo Ilula today I nm
strongly opposed to the Commission
Government. If such government
should control the local affairs It would
