In selecting the boards of registration
for the Territory, Governor Dole
has. In our opinion, done the Republican
party of the new Territory almost
irreparable barm. It is hard for many
men to acknowledge themselves in the
wrong, but Governor Dole can do much
to reinstate himself In the confidence
of all fair-minded people if he will
promptly recall the appointments made
and reappoint new boards.
In every State and Territory in the
Union since registration and election
boards were established, it has been
the universal custom to make these
boards non-partisan or bi-partisan. It
has not only been the unwritten, but
the written, law that registration and
election boards should be composed of
men representing all political parties.
whenoveranyStatehas varied from this
principle fraudulent elections have re-suited,
and the voice of the people has
been overridden by dishonest methods.
The Infamous Goebel election law of
Kentucky, under which the election of
lost fall was held in that State, placed
the entire election machinery in the
hands of the Democratic party. Under
it Mr. Taylor, who was honestly elected
Governor of the State by a majority
of several thousand votes, despite acknowledged
frauds, was counted out of
the office by a partisan Legislature.
Republicans and honest Democrats
throughout the length and breadth of
the land denounced the Goebel act as
the most iniquitous law of the kind
ever enacted. Under it party feeling in
the State became so aroused that rioting
and assassination resulted. Senator
Goebel, who stood as the embodiment
of the law, and who was to benefit
by its infamous unfairness, not to
use a harsher term, was assassinated
In the capitol grounds and the great
State of Kentucky disgraced. All this
from having partisan boards which
knew not the meaning of fairness.
It is the universal" rule in every
State and county for the duly organized
party committees to recommend to the
appointing power the names of
ble party men to servo pn the registra -
tlon or election boards. With a nar
rpwness worthy of a better cause Governor
Dole utterly ignored all party
organizations in the Territory. Iloth

months ago, Both choso Territorial

Governor Dole was appointed Governor
of Hawaii as a Republican, and as such
ho stands as the representative of a
Republican administration at Washing
ton. Any acts of omission or commission
that he may make while in office
are charged against the national administration
at Washington. For him
to ignore the party organization in the
Territory is to put himself above party
and Is virtually a reflection upon the
Republican President who appointed
In appointing the registration boards
for the TerritoFy, Governor Dole ignored
the party organization of the
Territory. The Territorial committee
was not asked to recommend a single
man for tlie boards. Likewise was tho
treatment accorded tho Democratic or
ganization. The Territorial committee
was not asked to recommend any
one: it was in nowise consulted o.
given a hearing; no more was the Independent
party. So-called Republicans,
close personal followers of the
Governor, wire appointed, regardless
of their standing in the party. Notwithstanding
this, the Republican

The possible demand of Hawaii for
admission to the American. Union as a
sovereign State is just now agitating
the statesmen on the mainland. It has
given some of the more tfmid over
there a political ague. It will be seen by
an editorial from that able, and usually
level-headed and fair, newspaper, the
Washington Post, republished on this
page, that Hawaii's ambition in this
direction is not to go uncontested. Indeed,
the Post is disposed to chaff us
and to speak disparagingly of our population.
It even goes as far a? to
threaten to shut us out by Constitu
tional amendment. That's unkind, to4.
say the least. The Post ought to suspend
judgment until it knows us better.
We are not "whoopers" over here,
and as the statistics demonsrate, there
is a lower standard of illiteracy in the
Territory of Hawaii than in the District
of Columbia or in 90 per cenKpf
the States and other Territories of the
Union. Hawaii has a population nearly
double that of-Arizona. Its inhabitants
will surely compare favorably with
those of Oklahoma and New Mexico,
either as to the whito or the brown
people. "The back counties of Hawaii"
will cast as intelligent a vote as the
"Hoop-pole counties" of Pennsylvania,
where they are said to be still voting
for Jackson,' the "Cracker" counties of
Tenne&see. the blackbelt of Georgia
and Mississippi or the Tarantula-juice
counties of Indiana. And if the people
of "a back county in the State of Hawaii"
prove themselves good Ameri-
cans. loyal and law-abiding, whv
shoul(1 nofe they have right to;BpSf t
"the balance of parties in Congress"
equally with any other section of the
This is not a "whoop" for Statehood,
but for justice. Hawaii has been
admitted unreservedly as a Territory,
of the United, and is entitled to all the
rights and privileges accorded Territories
on the mainland. It would now
scarcely bo possible to pass a Constitutional
amendment that T:ou!d apply-adversely
to the political rights of Hawaii
as an integral member of the
American federation. Such an effort
would be in violation of our treaty
rights and the at least implied contract
between Hawaii and the Union
contained in the Organic Act.
The Post, however, need not excite
itself over "this sort of nonsense," as it
is pleased to designate what should
be a laudable ambition on the part of
Hawaii. This Territory is quite content
with its present political status.
There is no serious agitation for Statehood
here, and those who onco thought
that these Islands should have been
admitted as a State have accepted the
situation loyally and in entire good
Of course, the Statehood germ is
here, and every true American has
been inoculated with it. It is tlie hope
that stimulates every effort toward tho
upbuilding of the Territory, and it is
a prospective right which the people of
Hawaii will not surrender without protest.
Now will the Post be good?

purpose being to limit the area of the
