THE REPUBLICAN PROGRAM !
HOW THE TARIFF DIM, IS TO BR
Majority "' Republican Ncnatom Fav
or mi Amendment Ciiiilliinlnic Hie
liitvallitii rrt'Mly In Farce.
A careful reading of tho
chances received by tho last
mails from the Const doe's
show any valid reasons for
present alarm over the probable
fate of the Hawaiian reciprocity
treaty. If there was any certainty
that it would be thrown oat, tho
papers would have something to
say about it, especially those who
aro opposed to the treaty and an
nexation and who aro in the pay
of the sugar men.
If there is any one paper more
than another devoted to the sugar
interests and the personal welfare
of the1" Spreckels family it is the
San Francisco Gall, nominally
owned by Oharlos M. Shortridgo
but really by John D. Sprockets,
and yet a careful perusal of its
columns shows nothing for the
Eeople of Hawaii to worry about
ut rather the opposite. Here is
an extract from a doublo column
leader on "The Tariff:"
Reports from Washington con
cerning the outlook for a speedy
adoption of a tariff bill are so
conflicting it is diffioult to arrive
at any conclusion concerning
them. We are assured by soma
correspondents that a pull of the
senate snows mat a majority is in
favor of adopting tho bill as re
ported to that body, but others,
who are equally well informed,
state that strong opposition will
be made to it; that it will havo to
be materially amended before it
can pass even the Senate; and that
after leaving that body, it will
meet' with strong opposition in
the House. i - -
"The changes in the bHl which
havo attracted most attention are
those omitting from the rovised
report tho clause referring to Ha
waii and that dealing with the
subjeot of reciprocity generally.
It is understood that the Repub
lican members of the Financo
Committee who revised the bill
are not opposed to the Hawaiian
treaty nor to the principle of re
ciprocity, but have deemed it best
to report the bill without them in
order that they may be taken up
separately and dealt with on their
In a short editorial note, the
same paper says: (
"Tho vote in the Sonate in
favor of an appropriation for
Pearl harbor doesn't look as
though our interests in Hawaii
wore to be allowed to go by de
fault." In the Washington dispatches
to the same paper, under date of
May 5, is round tho following
plan of the campaign to bo adopt
ed by the Republican Senators in
tho management of tho bill:
"Some of the Republican mem
bers of tho Houso are very sar
castio in reforence to the tariff
bill to be reported to tho Senate.
"Qrosvenor of Ohio, a member
of the Ways and Means Commit
tee, and quite generally regarded
as a spokesman of the administra
tion, says the bill as at present
framed can never pass the House.
But Grosvenor may be mistaken.
"It was learned today that the
Republican Senators havo already
outlined the plan they will follow
in passing the bill. Their plan
IB to keep the bill beforo tho
Sonate constantly after it is call
ed up for consideration on tho
18th, and by beginning daily bob
eions at an early hour and con
tinuing them at night to complete
tho consideration of the bill if
possiblo before the end of tho
"The bill will then bo sent to
the Houso, and if a oonforonce
committee is asked tho Senato
will deolino to appoint and the
House will thuB be forced to tho
necessity of acoepting tho Senato
bilj or prolonging the contest in-
fnBJ-!0to Wif. pro8poct of hav" I
"This is not lhrended to nutngo
nizo the Houso, but simply to
adopt a plnn of passing the bill
without referouco to a conference
committee as tho only practical
method of disposing of it nnd
avoiding the interminable discus
sion which would result if any
othor course were followed.
"In explanation of thoir action
in stiikiug out the entire recipro
city clause tho Republicans claim
that this clause" will bo brought
up in the Senato in the shape of a
general amendment covering the
general question of reciprocity,
and that undoubtedly somo reci
procity provision will be adopted.
"Aldrioh, author of the recipro
city clause in the McKinley tariff
bill in 1890, will undoubtedly
bring forward provisions based on
tho lines of that law, but probably
more general in their application.
"It is apparently tho opinion of
the majority of the Republican
Senators that an amendment will
bo adopted continuing the Hawai
ian treaty. It is explained further
that in striking nut of the bill the
clauso declaring that the treaty
shall not be abrogated, the Repub
lican Senators aro aotuated only
by a desire that the question shall
como up on its merits instead of a
somewhat appropriate amondmont
to tho sugar schedule.
"Tho Democrats are still swoop
ing in thoir denunciation of tho
bill, but are not yet prepared to
oppose it in all particulars."
Lealle'e Weekly Makes a Plan for Re
ciprocity on Their Account.
Leslie's Weekly, in a late issue,
argues for the revival of the late
Secretary Ulaino's policy of. re
ciprocity, saying in that connec
tion: "The opportunity consists in
the incorporation in tho legisla
tion relating to reciprocity trea
ties that nations on-this hemis
phere, favored -especially by main
trade .agreements, shall grant us
in return the right to establish
coaling stations for our navy,
such statiops to exist so long as
the treaties shall remain in
force. For thirty years we
have been trying to secure these
coaling stations by the round
about methods of diplomaoy, and
we have failed. The one coaling
station of importance that we have,
that, at Pearl Harbor in the Ha
waiian Islands, we scoured
through reciprocity legislation.
Our navy is Helpless, except for
purely defensive purposes,
without theso stations. The
valuo of a man-of-war in
those days depends entirely upon
its distance from a coal supply.
No ship can carry more than a
week's supply when steaming at
full speed. On paper the United
States is tho fourth or fifth naval
Power This is simply from a
defensive standpoint. From an
aggressive standpoint this nation
has not yet become a naval
Power of any consoquonco, and
will not become ono uutil it shall

P. G. Camarinos, the wellknown

of D. G. Camarinos, the ex-Greek

arrived from Honolulu on the

took him to Sausalito. Returning
to this city on the Rafael yester
day morning he went violently
insane and had. to bo strapped
down. As ho got no better he
was taken in a haok to tho new
City Hall and thoro Judge Belohor
consigned himtothe insane asylum.
The general opinion seems to be
that Mr. Camarinos' malady is
only temporary and that ip a few

EDMUND P. DOLE'S STORY
UIMH) MTKKAKV WORK
Telia of Tun Ntalunrt Man ou Two
Mdca r h Prolilblllou War
" Mr. Dole is Assistant Attorney-General
of Hawaii, and a
cousin of President Dole Ho is
the author of a bookr entitled
'Talks About Law,' but in the
present volume he has ventured
into an entirely different field.
1 The Stand-by' is a story of life
in a New England village, and tho
.action centers about a vigorous
fight on the prohibition question.
The hero winB the name that is
taken for the title of the story
during his cellege days, when he
leads his orew to viotory in an ex
citing boat-race. He becomea
editor of a reform newspaper in a
Maine town, and soon finds him
self at the bead of the prohibition
forces. The battle is desperate,
for the town is despotically ruled
by a rioh brewer, who is a man of
iudoinitablo character and fertile
in resource. The temporanco
question is fairly treated, for tho
autocrat has himself put down all
of the worst abuses, and the strug
gle merely revolves about the
matter of principle and the en
forcement of existing laws. The
romantic element enters into the
story in an attachment that grows
up between the hero and a daugh
ter of the brewer. The announce
ment is made that the story is
founded upon fact."
The foregoing is a memoran
dum to editors supplied by the
Century Co., .publishers, in pre
senting theuvolume, "The Stand
by," for review; It is 12mo 230
pages, price 91.25. Mr.. Dole Iras
a clear, strong and dramatic Btyle
as an author, and this story will
hold its own as literature apart
from its instructive quality.
There is a passing across the
stage through a period of years of
two unusually strong characters
in antagonism all the more
fierce on account of mutual appre
ciation of each other's noble qua
lities with the support of at least
two others whose devotion to
duty is no weaker than that of the
ones first in account to their views
of principle. The book is of
evenly sustained but never slight
interest to the very end. Its
woof of romance richly colored
with incident and episode is
struck into a warp of informing
faot relative to one of the leading
questions of the age. No theory
seems endeavored to be promul
gated, yet the story will streng
then varying proconceivod opin
ions. An appendix is printed in
the volume, made up of sentiments
gathered from the sayings of great
authorities, sacred and seoular,
bearing upon the liquor question.
This seems liable to be evon more
bailling than tho story to anyone
who is undecided as to how far
legal intervention for the welfare
of society may encroach upon the
boundaries of individual liberty.

From this Secretary Sherman be
lieves that the alarm of the Ha-
waiian Government has abated.
According to the statement given

his Government is disposed to
settle the controversy over the re

a threatening naval demonstration.
The State Department is hopeful
that no trouble calling for inter

to have at least two warships there
until all danger of Japanese inter
