DISCUSSES POLITICAL SITUATION
TXnSTSY SSVOLTJTION1ST WIL
COX XAT BECOME DELEGATE
Governor Dole "Which.
Prophet Kindly View
Edwin JL .Norris, the PhiladelphLa
newspaper man who spent six or eight
weeks in Hawaii, in a letter dated
Honolulu, July 31st, publishes a some
what interesting comment in the Phila
HplnM.i Ptpwi on Hawaii's effort at
learning the political art. The follow
tag are the salient features of the let
' Brieflv, the political situation is this
The white population of Hawaii is al
ready divided between republicans and
democrats, on strictly party Issues, jus:
as in the States. The republicans are
safely in the majority. Both parties
are definitely organi.ed, with central
committees and the interesting party
and partisan details of the good old
Amprlean nolitical srstem. But the
"third party," of which you have heard,
is not the non-essential thing you have
grown accustomed to in the States. The
third party in Hawaii is just now the
paramount problem of Hawaiian politics.
When the two national parties were
organized here, two months ago, it was
the general expectation that the native
population Tvould naturally follow the
white leaders. That expectation has
not been realized. On the contrary, the
natives are showing a decided liking
to a party of their own. This is the
"home rule," or the "independent," or
the "native" party whatever you
please in name. If thoroughly organized,
the Hawaiian people are still numerous
enough to outvote either the
republican or democratic whites,
though probably not strong enough to
defeat the entire white population
This native party is still in the making.
Governor Dole believes it will
fail. He told me that there is no com
petent leader who can organize the
third party into a compact and har
monious body. Other conservative
leaders among the white population
sav that when the time for serious
business arrives the natives will lean
upon the whites, just as they have done
for a hundred years. For Hawaii has
been ruled by the white man ever since
Kamehameha I., the great king, united
the islands under one government in
1795. Though a black sovereign aat
upon the throne, white men directed
affairs of state under the monarchy
almost as completely before as after
the revolution of 1S93. And whatever
the color or language or lineage of the
majority of the legislature, the white
man will continue to rule Hawaii. So
the substantial business man of Ha
waii will tell you.
The Chinese will have a vote of about
500. but if this vote proves a factor Jt
will be favorable to the whites, and is,
therefore, no menace to white rule.
Now, the native vote is a decreasing
factor. The Kanaka is dying. The
civilizing process has not been an unmitigated
blessing to him. With the
white man's higher attributes have
come the white man s sins, ana tne
seeds of immorality have fallen upon a
soil that yields a bountiful harvest of
disease and death.
But the Hawaiian race, apparently
doomed to extinction, will continue a
potent factor in the Territory of Hawaii
for some years.. That would be
clearly illustrated If it should happen
that a man with Hawaiian blood in his
veins should be the first to sit in the
congress of the United States as the
delegate-at-large of the people of the
Territory of Hawaii. Which is not an
impossible proposition by any means.
Strangely enough, that first congressional
delegate of the Territory of Hawaii
may be a. man who was literaliy
laughed out of the Republic of Hawaii
five years ago. Robert W. Wilcox, tne
leader of the notorious Wilcox Insurrection
in 1S95, has returned to Hawaii
andMs actually campaigning the islands
in the hope of going back to Washington
as Hawaii's first delegate-at-large.
The Wilcox rebellion is a joke in
Hawaiian history not Incomparable to
the Jameson raid in South Africa.
Aiming to re-establish the ex-queen on
the throne of the Kamehamehas, its
popgun explosion scarcely reached the
ears of the republic But Wilcox is
back, and In the absence of a bettdr
leader that portion of the native population
that has been waiting for an. opportunity
to shoir Its disapproval cf
the course of the revolutionists of '93
Is giving him a hearing and may give
him its Tote.
Meantime neither the republicans
nor the democrats have settled oa
candidate for delegate to congress. O
considerable more importance to the
prosperity of the sew Territory is ths
problem of the complexion of the
The first body of the
Territory of Hawaii win have before It
business of the first significance.
Under the republic cities
and towns la the islands had
no corporate exMeace. The central
govemmeat at Hoeolulu made and
executed the laws for theeatlre group.
Now, uader the American system, the
people expect that greatest freed oaa
of the iaatridaal eoaaiste&t with political
stability, which it tbe glory of
the Americas democracy. They are
asking for home rolei And with this
demand the first legislature will
deaL Honolulu itself, a city of perhaps
40,& population, is still ruled
by the central goTernment. It has no
separate corporate bein?. Hilo. the
second town of the islands, with a
of about 15.000. located 530
miles from the central government at
Honolulu, likewise expects home rule.
From time to time other towns will
make pm3"" demands- For the present,
however, only Honolulu and Hilo
wttl be considered. That will be a big
job for the .legislature. It means the
formation of an entire municipal system,
as exemplified in the Bullitt law
The plague which fell upon Honolulu
last year, now happily stamped
out. has left another difficult task fot
the legislature in the settling of the
claims of property holders whose build'
ings were burned to prevent the spread
of the scourge- A big portion of the
city is a blackened waste of cinders.
The loss to the government alone on
account of expenditures to check the
plague was 5600.000. Indirectly the
city, lost several millions of dollars.
The insurance companies propose to
test their losses. The property owners
hold that they should not suffer the
loss. Governor Dole holds that the
burden should be distributed, that the
insurance companies should bear a pan
of it, the property owners another part
and the government another. The
legislature will decide.
Then there is the difiicult task of
providing a revenue for the maintenance
of the new territory. The former
revenues from duties, amounting
to over a million annually, is now cul
off and goes to the United States government.
That means much to Hawaii.
Public improvements call for large appropriations.
As yet taxes are low
compared with the rates In the States
only 1 per cent. But there is a strong
reluctance to increase the rate. .However,
it will have to be increased.
Governor Dole says there is no plan
as yet formulated, but that the legislature
will probably provide for a loin
to meet the present financial need. No
difficulty is anticipated in floating such
a loan, for the federal government is
expected to take up the 54,000,000 debt
of the republic at the next session of
These are the most important problems
that will come before the first
territorial legislature of Hawaii. Their
significance is sufficiently plain. Upon
an intelligent solution depends the future
welfare of the new territory. It is
a time when harmony is specially de
manded. The prospect of a third party
obstructing the work of reconstruction
is naturally a disturbing factor in the
business community. Besides, there Is
a split in the republican party that may
or may not assume proportions sufficient
to block desirable legislation.
The native Hawaiian is easily led.
He clings to the white man as the vine
clings to the oak. Lacking the stamina
for vigorous individual initiative, easygoing,
not over fond of work, he is yet
a most lovable person, and not a bad
citizen. Amiable, kind hearted, almost
to a fault, hospitable far beyond the
hospitality of the white man, he is singularly
devoid of those barbarous
characteristics which render the black
man in America a menace to the States.
If led by high minded leaders he will
be a power for good in Hawaii.
Dole is Hopeful.
Governor Dole looks hopefully to the
future. Here is his summation of the
"The republican party is enlisting a
good many natives, particularly the intelligent
natives. The democratic party
has not made much progress yet,
but I think is likely to have a following
of the natives, from the fact that
the democrats have opposed annex
Then there is a movement among
the natives, mainly by conspicuous roy
alists, for an independent native party.
I doubt whether they can succeed; they
have no man equal to organizing the
work that I know of among them, ami
I don't think that they can unite the
natives. Eventually the two national
parties will divide the population. This
independent party will split on the
other two parties."
"Are the royalists, as a whole, pretty
well reconciled to annexation?" I asked.
"I think so," said the governor. "A
few do not give up. It is a matter of
temperament Wages are good, business
is good, and only a few hold out."
