THE NEXT LEGISLATURE
There cau be no doubt that in the
tbo near future tbe people living in
the Hawaiian territory will bo called
upon to elect a legislature which
will bo charged with tho duly of
making laws suitable to our existing
conditions and investigate the work
and actions of tho men now in
charge of tho government
Wo all admit that the first legisla
ture under the new mode of govern
ment will be hostile to the present
regime and it will be wise for the
Dole clique to be thoroughly pre
pared to answer questions that will
prove disagreeable to say the leastor
to be prominent by their absence
from the country A thorough in
vestigation will he made into the
expenditures incurred during the
alleged plague epidemic The peo
ple will want to know how much
tho doctors and druggists have
made by furnishing advice or dis
infection and rat poisou whioh the
rats seem to like They will warn
to know the amounts paid for haiki
for the military and know tbe
reason why baok bills for the rnili
tary are an unknown quantity in
tivilized countries The represent
atives of the taxpayers willl want to
know the authority of the Citizens
Sanitary Committee to expend mo
ney burn property and take upon
themselves the power of an autocra
tic government They will ask the
Board of Health lo explain whether
whe have an impcrium in imperio or
why the self appointed committee
of the Ballou Thurston clique was
allowed to run the country
Tho Dole gang must understand
that it will find a very hostile legis
lature never mind the electoral
qualifications imposed by the or
ganio law for Hawaii on the voters
of this country Mr Thurstons or
gan always refer to the mission
ary ring as the -best element in
tho Hawaiian Islands whose inter
ests must bo specially protpotod
When and why did men of the
Thurston Castle Dole olass ever
become a best element We
dont wish to say naughty things
but wo would like to know who
they are and what good they have
ever done to this country In every
action of auy of them their inher
ited selfishness their unbridled
thirst for mammonstandoutin bold
relief
Their days have gone by and they
know it and they are welcome to
retire to their homes and fine resid
ences aoross the sea Thurston
could not even iu his halcyon days
get a nomination as a legislator in
Honolulu He had to sneak up to
Molokai or some other obsoure place
to be olectod Dole wont to Kauai
because the capital wouldnt have
him and the sugar bsronn of the
garden island elected bim and used
him as a tool W Ii OiBtle hied
himself to Wailuku while Win O
Smith called upon Lihue to seud
him to tho Legislature Why was
it that these men never dared to
place themselves before the taxpay
ers in their places of roeidoncein the
MUhMMOMM
capital Because thoy kuew that
thoy wtro in a tnisceabjo minority
and that only through bribory could
I boy ever untn their ends And that
kind of cattlti Is described by Mr
Thurstons organ as tho boat olo
ment in tho Islands
Tho next legislature may be too
radical tho other ivay and allow tho
desire to pottle old scores to run
way with the true interests of tho
country It will surely do so if
President McKiuley adds insult
to injury by appointing Dolo or
any of his miserable gang to be tho
first governor of Hawaii The
bast element will dominate tho
first legislature becauso the best
olemeut aro always those who re
present tbo penple

Ed Tub Independent
Allow uio space iu your paper to
express a few sentiments which are
those of mauy of my cnuutrymen
I uoticeiu different interviews which
have been publiahrd iu local papers
that Hon Samuel Parker is reported
m otaiitg that while ho was in
Washington he looked after the
best iuterests of the HawaiianB aud
at the same time he states empha
tically that he would not accent the
governorship of Hawaii if tendered
to him aud that it is his personal
opinion that Dole is the mau Mr
ParkHr is of course entitled to hS
owu vit ws and he must know the
reasons for his policy belter than
auy one else As an Hawaiian how
ever 1 feel that I have the right to
demand of my countryman Samuel
Parker that he fulfills the duties to
his country wlnih tie claims to love
and to his race iu the iuterest of
which he says he is working Tbe
Hawaiian people aud nearly all the
katuaaiua haoles and many of the
mahhiuis waut Samuel Parker to be
the first governor of Hawaii His
appointment to that position would
b ou the part of Mr McKiuley a
graceful compliment to the Hawai
ians It would be a policy showing
great foresight and it would result
in harmony aud goodfeeling between
the different factions here which will
be essential to the welfare of the
country
I dont say that Samuel Parker is
infallible He may have faults as
other osn have but even Mr Dolo
may cot be above reproach It is
possible that Mr Dole prefers an
essay on the beating of the heart
while Mr Parker prefers a flush in
hearts it is true that Mr Dole has
an artistic taste and admires tbe
form of divino woman in marble
while Mr Parker profers the real
article but to the Hawaiians Parker
as governor is far preferable to any
other man
I write this to tell him and the
country that it is his duty to accept
the position even at a personal sacri
fice or even temporarily The first
governor of Hawaii should be a na
tive Hawaiian and if the offer is
made to Mr Parker his duty as a
Hawaiian patriot is to accept the
office even if he only chooses to hold
it foAhree months
