Mr. Woolley staied' to you this
morning that the only criticism that
Is generally 'made of Oovornor Frear
In the Territory la that he Is a man
who Is exceedingly cautions, careful,
and studious in his judgment' ot pub
lic affairs. This cablbgram evidences
the effort of the Qovernor to look
mm all sides of Ihis question, and
while he states the ovlls ot'the con
ditions there, his final conclusion Is
that the present condition does not
call for this legislation.
The' next cablexram Is from tho
Merchants' Association of Honolulu
and Is as follows:
"Honolulu, Feb. 8, 1910.

Mr. McClellatf'' 'i want to refer
again to' tho'- question ot the status
of the'Territoryof Hawaii with ref
erence to the Federal government.
Tho Senator from Kansas and Mr.
Woolley amp Mr. Dthwlddlo all seem
to regard It ns "a rather remarkable
discovery' that Congress has the pow
er to pass such legislation "as the
pending bill. That power is so un
questioned that the Delegate frank
ly stated It In his brief; and that
Is not the Issuo Involved In this
discussion. The Issue Involved In
this discussion, gentlemen, Is this;
Whethor, considering nil of the cir
cumstances of the status and devel
opment of Hawaii previous to an
nexation'; whether. In view of all
the assurances ot the right to home
rule under a Territorial government

J of legislation given to the Territory
under tho Organic Act; and wheth
er, further, under Aha nracttcally
unbroken line of tradition and cus
tom with regard to the use of the
powers of Congress to lcglslato for
Territories, It Is fair and Just In
this case to Impose 'this legislation
on the Territory ot Hawaii.
This Is not primarily a question
of whether or nbt there are evils ot
Intemperance In the Territory ot Up
wall. That there are evils ot In
temperance Is very 'evident.
I have traveled 'in every State
and Territory ot tho United 8tates,
savo two, and I have never .found a
State, whether It was a prohibition
State or one In which there was a
very liberal provision tor the sale
of 'liquors, In which thero were not
evils ot intemperance. Therefore,
iny general argument ns to the
-ivlls of Intemperance Is -not; in it
self, any reason tor the imposition
Of legislation of this sort by .the
Congressi over the tactions of a Ter-
murx wmen nas power 10 regulate i
mai matter now unaer tne law.'
That the Unltett 8tatei Congress I
una iwer no impose sucn a iw in
certainly no" re&saW-why 'it should
exercise that power. I might call
the attention -of (he Senator from
Kansas, and' of the gentlemen, who
have cited their reasons on the other
aide to the .fact that during the days
Of the Territorial , rovernment nf
Kansas the Congress had .power to
impose a law establishing slavery
thore; but my ancestors,- both' my'
father and ,my grandfather .were nf
those, who labored there, to oppose
slavery; and my grandfather gavo
nis ino, ror mat cause. The, mere
tact- that Congress' has power- to do
a thing is, in Itself, certainly no
reason why It should do the thing.
That this power ,ihouldperres'erved
In Congress lp a necessary fact. Con
gress, In passing many classes, of leg
islation (In passing, - for example,
bills (o. give & company 'the right, tcj
construct a brldgeiaoross a navigable
stream), usually, specifically states
that It reserves the right to alterj
amend, or repeal that act; but I am
not aware that that right has ever
been exercised. .Congress has the
power to pass Inter-state commerce
laws, restricting absolutely the
transmission 'of liquors from one
State into another, but I am not
aware that hat power has been ex
ercised, at least lnthe case of any
Strito, which has not Itself prohibit
ed the salo of liquor,- Congress. has
the power to repeal the 'present Ha
waiian liquor law. and to make, the
salo of liquor there wholly free and
unrestricted; but It would be a
gross breach ot the right ot our
Territory to administer Its-own do
mestic affairs. . -, -
Now, with respect to tho question
whethor this legislation should be Im
posed, I want to reiterate tlib foci
that the ovlls of Intemperance' b5lns
In ovldonco In Hawaii s not- lii Itself
a sufficient, reason, for Conn ess to
stop in nnd withdraw certain powers
of local administration, such as 'have
been given to the Territory, Unless
there ,1s a particular reason and cause
shown. ' .

to me that the' position of tho Dele

It seems to mo that a fair consideration-
of this question brings It down
to thlss Is tho legislature of HawjULi
a reasonably' cnpablo and reliable,
body? Ar tho people of. Hawaii cap
able of legislating for themselves?,
Tho implication and tho direct state
ment ot Mr. Woolley Is, to tho con;
trary. I read from his argument be
fore this' committee at a previous
So tho point I make about., this U
that tho'' native legislature, wlth'ha
pressure that Is bearing upon It-all tho
tlmo, Is unablo to deal .wisely with tho
liquor problem In tbo Islands.-
That Is a perfectly frank, statement
I take- It, of his position. Now, what,
aro tho facts; In 1907 a liquor law
was brought forward by tho temper-,
anco people,, who had, been orgauluxl
for that purpose and, who had carried
on a vigorous campaign to that end.
-That law was brouelit before, tho leg
islature and. was vigorously combated
by the liquor Interests, In splto of the
opposition ot the liquor Interests., that
law was written Into tho statute books

.Now, gentleman, that Is tho law
which Is In effect In (ho Territory of
Hawal today. It lins a great many1 '
restrictions, and I think I should re-'
