THE WILLING HAND.
Misrepresentation of the Uian Fund
Commission reaches the height of ab
surdity when it takes the form of the
attack such as made In this morning's
paper. Any attorney, any business
man at all familiar with tlio legal reg
ulations applicable to the case knows
that the signature of the auditor of
the Territory need not be alllxed to
the belt road contract until time for
paying over the first money to thu
contractors Is actually, at hand. And
to accuse the commission of a blund
er because Auditor Fisher lias not yet
com il led with this formality is so
liugc ii blunder Uself that It is funny.
llehlnd all these wild and nebulous
charges, all these moauliigs and
groanlngs nnd whimpers, Is what?
That Is the question for right-thinking
citizens to n'sk themselves. Mud
does not sling Itself. There must be
a band willing to plunge Itself In mire.
An open effort, remarkably vindic
tive in tone nnd vicious la purport, Is
apparent In a large part of the dls
cusslon over the Kublo charges
against tlio Governor, to Involve not
only the actlvo parties to the contro
versy, but tlio Ilawallans as a whole.
Against such a course there can be
but one universal cry of Indignation.
Aside from the misstatements of fact
that have accompanied this effort, the
whole trend of tlio argument Is base
ly unfair to every decent clement In
tlio community. Wcro the effort less
persistent, less blindly selllsh, less
grossly wronging to the Hawaiian
clement of the Territory's citizenship,
It might bo overlooked ns evidence
only of Ignorance or un-American big
otry. Hut decent men cannot afford
to overlook entirely attacks of such
character Unit they reflect not only
on thoso directly assaulted, but on the
structure of the commonwealth.
It Is eminently nn-Ainerlcan to vent
upon tlio Hawaiian citizens a spite
against the Delegate from this Terri
tory. Whatever bo the outcomo of the
present controversy aroused by (lie
charges tlio Delegate makes, tlio at
tack upon tlio Ilawallans arouses Just
resentment generally. Common fair
ness, everyday Justice should rule,
even In the treatment or tlio opposi
tion. Tlio Kublo-Frenr Issuo la not nn Is

body tries to nuiko it so except a

them forward, has made them bli own.

tack has gone home. The attempted

Is, of course, but tho cheapest kind of
"Again, the document Is assailed on
the ground that Its charges are not 'spe
cific' Hut tho critics who tnke that
position apparently overlook the fact
that the entire scopo nntl purpose of
the complaint Is to present a condition,
ns prevailing here a condition Inimi
cal tn the Interests of American civil
isation In Hawaii to which, ns charg
ed, the Governor Is, In large measure, a
party and not the thousand subsidi
ary facts which, taken together, con
stitute that condition.
This Is by no means nn nttempt by
the Delegate to Impcnch the Governor
of olllclnl misdemeanors, with a view
to his removal from olllce before the
end of the term for which ho was ap
pointed. Were It such, the necessity of
'speclllc chnrges" would be nppnrent.
Hut, on the other hand, the Delegate'
apparent purpose In bis complaint Is
to set forth certain conditions hero pre
vailing, nnd to so fix upon the Govern
or tho responsibility for the continu
ance of those conditions, ns to demon
strate the unwisdom of bis reappoint
ment. There Is a difference, nnd a
very renl and vide cue, between these
(wn kinds of procedure. While It mny
well he that nothing short of olllclnl
malfeasance or the grossest errors of
administrative Judgment would Justify
tho removal of nn nillcer of govern
ment, yet a general attitude of con
tributing, either actively or pnsslvely,
toward the malntenntico of. .existing
abuses, or n demonstrated lack of ca
pacity or of disposition to copo with
those abuses, might well be considered
decisive ns to whether the same oW-
cer should bo reappointed to olllce, nt
the end of a given term. And It Is tin!
system of abuses prevail lug In Itnwnll,
and the Governor's failure to properly
cope with them, and tho certainty that
those abuses will continue substantial
ly unchecked, In the event of his re
appointment, that forms tho theme of
the Delegate's complaint.
