The street sales of the Sunday
of The Republican alone exceed
the total daily sales per month of the
Adrart&sr. This is a fact patent to
evecy resWeat of Honolulu.
HoMlttlaas eaa congratulate themselves
that they are to bare another

plays with new scenery will be much
appreciate by the Honolulu public.
For a paper that is so orosperous
as it claims to be Urn Advertiser
saws most unusual concern about
TIm Republican, which It claims Is
slowly dying. Too bad that a
establishment should cause a
prosperoas (?) one bo much concern.
The Republican devotes a great
deal of space this morning to the derision
of the United States Supreme
Coart la what is known as the De
Lima aad the Grossman cases
to the status of Hawaii and
Porto Rico between the time of annexation
and the erection of a. Territorial
Government Just now there is
umteaal interest in Honolulu in know
lag just what the United States Supreme
Court did hold regarding the
so-called "transition period" and it
la to gratify this interest that the
decision or the court as furnished by
the Solicitor General of the United
States, is given in full
The ponderous slow-going ox calling
Itself the blabvortisor now seeks
to make its few readers think that .'t
has a correspondent in Washington
and publishes a fake letter signed
with the initials "D. C .L." According
to the very latest issue of the
Congressional Directory the only correspondents
whose names begin with
the letter "L" are Landon. Hal D..
Lamer, R. M., Leupp, Francis
Edward S.. (The Republican's
Chas. B., Low. A. Maurice, and
Luhnow. C A. As none of these men
have the initials D. C. L.. and as the
list of correspondents fails to show
any one in Washington with these
initials perhaps the Advertiser can
inform us who its correspondent is
and where he has his office in Honolulu-
Tho Republican presents this morning
a very Interesting interview with
Senator Perkins of California uoon
the subject of a cable to Hawaii. It
will bo news to many people here that
a "promlnont attorney of Hawaii opposed
a government cable in Washington."
This prominent attorney was
A. S. Hartwell who was paid ten thousand
dollars to go to Washington to
labor for such an Organic Act as the
Dole clique wanted and who spent
most of his time in working for th
appointment of Doleas Governor, all
at public expense. It now appears
thaUMr. Hartwell did not lose sight
of the main chance and that he also
lOund time, to earn a retainer from,
the Now York Cable Company. The'
people of Hawaii have" ttfsthank Mr.
Hartwell and those "who sent him to
Washington at public expense, for
Honolulu not being connected with
the mainland by cable at the present
One of the clauses already adopted
by the convention which Is framing a
new Constitution for Alabama will
raeet with general approval. It provides
for changing the time of State
elections from August to November
aad for holding sessions of the Legislature
once every four years, unless
tb&t body is called by the Governor
In extra session. The need for a
.jange In the time of holding State
'jNUoas is obvious. Every Presidential
year Alabama is compelled to
g to th expense of two elections
when one would serve just as well.
The separation of State from national
ejections was made when the Democrats
sained control of Alabama after
the reconstruction ora. and it was
doao ia order to prevent any Fed
eral interference with the ballot box
staffing by which the State was car
ried. Qaadreani&l .BejE&u&e

HABEAS CORPUS PROCEEDINGS.
Tbe actios of certain seabers oftbe
bar. of Attorney General Dol and of
Jadge Frear of Use Supreme Coeri in
the various habeas corpas proceedings
now before the courts are simply
disgraceful They show the
to be absolutely Ignorant of
the law governing habeas corpus proceedings
and tbey are doing" more
than aaght else that could be done to
bring the Supreme Court and the
legal profession of Hawaii into contempt
and ridicule for their crass ignorance.
If the thirty-seven, members
of the Bar Association who wanted
Judge Humphreys removed are to be
judged by Attorney General Dole and
the attorneys for Frank Pahia then
it Is well that a large number of attorneys
did not attend the meeting
of the association. Gauged by the
standard thus presented the association
should make the quallScations
for membership to consist of absolute
ignorance of all law.
Even the layman, who has been a
general reader of current topics, has
long since learned that habeas corpus
proceedings are not appealable. As
shown by The Republican yesterday
morning in citing a decision of the
Court of Appeals of the State of Texas,
if writs of habeas corpus were
subject to appeal such action would
defeat the purpose of the writ and
make of the writ but a solemn mockery.
We would especially commend
this decision to the Attorney General
aad particularly would we commend
to him what Church, on Habeas Corpus,
says of the respondent appealing
a writ of habeas corpus. Says
this very good authority: "Sound
policy forbids the right of appeal be-'
ing granted to the respondent and
the law has not conferred it upon
But then Attorney General Dole
needs no law to confer the right of
appeal upon the respondent, as represented
by him. as long as he believes
he has a compliant Chief Justice to
crook the pregnant hinges of the knee
at every beck and nod of the representative
of the Dole administration.
But if this attempt at appeal by the
Attorney General of the Territory
shows ignorance of the law and absolute
violation of all rights ot citizens,
so does the granting of an appeal by
Chief Justice Frear In the case of
Frank Pahia show an utter disregard
of the law. A guardian appointed by
the court is just as much an officer
of the court as Is a receiver or a
bailiff or any other appointee. of the
court Pahia purchased a piece of land
from a minor under the guardianship
of the court The court not only refused
to confirm the sale but directed
Pahia to redeed the land to the minor.
This was as clearly within the power
of the court as was the appointing of
the guardian. The Supreme Court
could have nothing to do with the appointing
of the guardian, that was a
matter resting entirely in the hands
of the Circuit Court Pahia disobeyed
the express orders of the Circuit
Court and there was no method under
which the court could compel obedience
to Its orders except by commitment
for contempt The Chief
Justice issued a writ of habeas corpus
making it returnable before Circuit
Judge Gear. Judge Gear very properly
dismissed the writ and now the
Chief Justice permits the filing of an
appeal upon the dismissal of tfie writ
and the release of the prisoner upon
hi? depositing a cash ball of fifty dollars.
Was ever such an opera bouffe
performance witnessed In any civilized
country before? It is disgraceful.
It stamps the Chief Justice as being
as ignorant of law as the Attorney
General, whose lack of knowledge of
the commonest practice Is notorious,
and it further stamps him as a partisan
judge who is willing to disgrace
his ermine if by so doing he can make
It appear to the ignorant and vicious
that the Circuit Judge had committed
Until the war with Spain this country
was apparently content with its
army and the manner in which it was
managed during times of peace. The
imposing military demonstrations
made annually by other Powers did
not seem to excite even a momentary
feeling of envy or desire for emulation.
But the w&r with Spain has
aroused a spirit of militarism that is
In marked contrast with the former
sentiments. One of the latest evidences
of this is to be found la a
proposition approved by Secretary
Root for the holding of exteaslve
tary maneuvers annually. The
ment has reached a point where the
Secretary of. War hs practically decided
to select a site for the operations.

The people of Hawaii could wett
aford to subscribe the money for the
building of a cable for the local bene
fits that would ensue. On every
stemMer business naen depart, for tlte
mainland on business trips at great
expense and loss of time all of which
business could be accomplished from
home If there was & cable. The
amount paid out for steamer fare and
expenses on these trips, to say nothing
of the loss of time, would more
than pay the annual interest oa the
coat of a cable. But what Hawaii
wants and what the people of the
mainland want Is a cable laid and
owned by the government The people
of Hawaii can do much to secure
favorable action by Congress in behalf
ot a government cable if they
will bat act together. The suggestion
that a committee of three to five men
go to Washington to urge the passage
of a government cable bill by Congress
Is one that should be acted upon
by the business men of this Territory.

If any thing were needed to further
demonstrate the Infamy of many of
the laws of Hawaii It has been
ed In the suit to dismiss the guardian
of James Love. The law providing
for the appointment of guardians
of spendthrifts is in line witn
the laws providing for declaring people
insane and for conviction with a
majority jury without the formality
of an indictment It well illustrates
the hodge podge legal practice in Hawaii
under which the Supreme Cour
could play fast and loose with every
law on the statute books, making decisions
one way one day and reversing
itself the next day, being always
guided by what its members and interested
parties were pleased to call
public policy. With the merits of the
Love case The Republican has nothing
to say, but it believes it i3 high
time that such an infamous law as the
one which ties a man's property up,
as Love's has been tied up, should be
j Ifflll i! STATEHOOD.
Persons Not Sufficient.
From .New York Mall and Express.
There cannot be presented sufficient
r?nSSK tbe camPaign begun by Delegate
Wilcox for Hawaiian Statehood
to lend it the slightest tinge of probable
success. He adduces no evidence
to show that the condition of Hawaii
cocially or industrially, would be improved
by making it a State, while it
Is undeniable that the expenses of its
government would be larger than the
cost of Its
administration as a Territory.
The decision of the Supreme
Court simplifies its government as a
Territory. It is true that the Legislature
of Hawaii has disappointed the
better element of its people. But that
may be regarded as an Initial lesson
in the art of self-government. It is
doubtful whether the Hawaiian Legislature
could surpass, for example,-the
recent record of the Pennsylvania Legislature.
No Statehood for Hawaii.
From the Philadelphia Press.
Delegate Wilcox, of Hawaii, who is
enthusiastically advocating RfntPhnv
for the territory of Hawaii, Is wasting
ms ume. riawaii is not nt to become a
State, and it will be a long time if
ever, before it will be so fitted. There
is no evidence whatever to show that
Hawaii would be better oft as a State
than as a Territory, while Its expenses
would be greatly increased.
The talk of uniting Hawaii with California
meets with no favor either In
Hawaii or In California, and is calmer?
leal. Congress would give no consideration
to such a proposition. Under the
decision of the United States Supreme
Court, Hawaii needs no statehood, and,
like other of our new possessions, can
be well governed under a territorial
form of government such as it now
An to complaints about the alleged
ignorance and corruption of its Legts?
iature, they count for nothing in view
of what some of our State Legislatures
do, particularly that of
No Territorial Legislature will
probably ever exhibit such rottenness
as has characterized the Pennsylvania
Legislature, or that of Montana, and
fortunately no Territorial Legislature
wou'd have the power to rob the people

adds the Ledger, it Is sot likely that
the people of ths Halted States will
favor the. ada&doa of Hawaii to statehood.
Indeed, it is not easy to conceive
of aay circumstances ta, which
the American people would be wfUIng
to create a state there zed this will
apply to the other Insular possessions.
The people of Hawaii may as wen
make up their minds to be satisfied
with a territorial government, for that
form win be continued indefinitely.
What Have We Sown.
From the Hllo Tribune.
The Advertiser has decisive information
that Dole will not be removed.
This Is not a matter of any considerable
Interest. Dole has apparently removed
himself, for If he does not re-

Executive will take any action la the

The great white father at Washington

IndivIdoaL He also believes in letting
people reap what they have sown.
What the people of" Hawaii sowed that
they should leap Cooper, we don't exactly
know; it must have been a combination
of tar weed, Hilo grass, and
Japanese beetle. Probably some othet
people wonder what the seed was from
which the Territory Is reaping Humphreys,
and they think that In this
case surely the husbandman will get
after the tarea. Not so however, and
the sooner the people of this Territory
get over this idea of justification by
faith and petition and commence to
work out their own salvation and political
destiny, as they were intended
to when annexed, the better it will be
for them, and the less they will add
to the gaiety of their sister states and
