they are afraid more than ever. Rather

they could torevcr control anil by means
of which they would llood the land witli
Asiatics and make this a poor place for
whitest That would bo ''stable govern
ment" after tlicir own fahion, Natur
ally, Messrs. Spreckcls and Davlos
would havc.muuh to say about it.
'To fix things up for this Planters' He
public scheme the sugar men in the
Council began work a long time ago.
Whenever they could llnd or make a
vacancy in the Advisory liody they (Hied
it with a sugar man, an attorney for
sugar men, an employe of sugar men or
, witli a steamlioat man whose dividends
or. salary depended on sugar
transportation, Ah a result,
as 1 count t hu list, the
Councils now hare, out of a total of
eighteen members, twelve who are de
voted to the sugar interest, liecent
events show that, if any vacancy in the
Advisory Council follows, the promotion
of Claus Spreckels' attorney, Mr. V. 51.
Hutch, another sugar man will be put
in. There is absolutely no chance there
for a man who is devoted to annexation
pure and simple. He is regarded, as a
dangerous and incendiary character who
might explode a bomb under the frame
work of the proposed republic that is,
the Planters' oligarchy.
I happen to know that several drafts
of this proposed change of Government
hare been drawn by the planter-legislature
and their aitorneys and that just
as soon as Congress disposes of the mon
archy for good, one of them will be
sprung in the Councils and cither rati
fied or submitted to a Constitutional
Convention. In the latter case
the ' plantations will bu per
mitted to send delegates to the end that
the straight Annexationist may lie out
voted. We shall then sec the planters
in power and if they can maiiRge to get
an American protectorate against in
ternal disorder as well as outside in
terference, they will hold these Islands
down in pcrjietuity. Chius Spreckels
and the Sugar Trust would work for the
protectorate in case they could have
their say in Hawaii.
For one I want to eco this scheme
beaten, and beaten out of sight. On
that account I favor 5Ir. Martin's pro
posed move to issue certificates of elec
tion to the Annexation Club members,
including the members of the American
League and Schutzen Corps, and proceed
to elect straight Annexation men to the
Councils and Instruct them, in case a
republic is advisable, to go ahead and
get one up that Americans and not
coolie-drivers, Annexationists and nut
sugar companies will manage, and man
age to the one end that Hawaii shall be
come a part of the Union. Civis.

bencrits accruing from that "un

and are worth commemorating. Janu

will never be forgotten, no matter what

in the future. Nationef holidays have a

The movement entitled to the credit
for this change is for the present under

chief object is to .secure tho broadest

its members are by personal character ho

Kiiituk Stab Has it come to the pass
that the God-given right of petition lias
liven abolished, abridged or weighted
witli conditions? It TookB thai way.
Nearly a fortnight ago the respectful
and proper petition of tho Annexation
Club touching a prospective vacancy In
the Ailvlwy Council, was sent forwanl.
Though there has since been two ses
sions of tho legislative liody. the com
munication has not even had the small
attention of reading and . reference.
Ciesur met Ids fate through inattention
to petitions. Ho nostnono'd their read
ing but a few hours. This Advisory
louncll simply ignores such a document.
Is there no recourse? What is to pre
vent such arbitrary anil hiuh-haiidcd
action in ottier matters? Tho Council
men do not seem to appreciate tho fact
that strangulation of the voice of tho
people Is a hid for threatening discon
tent, If nothing worn1.
A petition from the Plunters' Lalior
and Supply Company had the peculiarly
happy treatment of bcinir submitted to

was, to tne apparent way ol thinking 01
the rfmers that be, of much greater iiu
norlnnce than tho more Dctltinn of men
ho have risked all in support of a Gov

a hearing in tne matierot representation.
Instead of taxation without renrescnta-
t Ion, it is now: "Wo have vou wholly
committed to us and care not whether
you have representation or no." This is
certainly serious. I am not nn alarmist,
but simply wish to reassert the prolo

At the executive session of tho Advis

cided to pormlt the importation of "a
limited number of lalmrers" under the
law of 1B9J. This was in response to
the application of the Planters' Labor

together with a favorable answer, was

Fuither consideration of the uoaitlve

tionality, was had in tho executive pes
sion. This seems more than anything
else to ho a umtter of principle and

The nri-Bont administration of that
country has adopted an aggressive or.
"advanced" foreign policy, and u trans
action such ns proposed here would he
a big feather in Its cap.
The Provisional Government replies
at length to Japan, The first obstaole
in the way of any action whatsver, is
the pending project for annexation. If
the islands become pai t of the United
States the question nf Japanese suffrage
can lie settled from Washington. Noxt,
no one is voting hero at present. The
next serious objection to granting the
request is that Japan retains almost "en
tire control of her immigrants. They
continue indefinitely to pay tribute and
bend tho knee to their home Govern
ment The ballot should only go as an
appurtenance of citizenship. The Jap
anese Consul replies that they desire
siilTrnge only for persons qualified under
tho election laws. This class would not
include the large hotly of coolies unable
to read or write English. To the objee

that was trained on tho oK'ra house and
threw shot and shell nnd canister in that
direction. Col. Fisher of llishop's hank

fashioned from metal projected by the
gun. The Held piece in the engagement
was like an old-fashioned musket used
by an Inexperienced sporUman. It was
dangerous only to thosu oiicrating It.
Several gunners were picked off by.
sharpshooters before the field pieces were
abandoned. This battery cost the Gov
