NO COMMISSION OOVI'UN'illliNT.
If stonmBuips could run for po
liticnl office, tlio Australia will bo
on top of the populnr wnvo.
It's a case of whistle anil wnit
for thoeo who want to know what
tho CommiBsinn ia driving at.
The Executives certainly has no
reason for worry from President
McKinloy's iuBtructions thus far
Secretary Alger says tho pooplo
havo no reason tomako him "dance
on tho carpet," but tho people
don't soo it that way.
Times will bo hard and there'll
will be snow in tho streets of Ho
nolulu, when Hawaii can't got up
rfomo sort of a political circus.
Franco is again rackod by tho
D.reyf us sensation. Tho facts of
tho praotical murdor of this officer
aro bound to como to tho light
sooner or later.
Toll American ship builders
that thoy can't furnish ships
enough under tho American Hag
to do tho Hawaiian business and
seo what they say about it.
Granting that Hawaii is a poli
tical hodge podge, may tho Powers
bo merciful to tho man who selects
a name for Porto Itican, Cuban
and Philippine political condi
So tho Advertiser thiuks this
country whoso institutions have
been built up on American prin
ciples, has suddenly become a
political hodgo podgo. Wo are
sorry to noto tho suddon falling
away from tho good works of tho
American business men and Ame
rican missionary. Not without
personal reason1,1 Iho' morning or
gan has cause to foar a govern
ment by tho pooplo. But it should
not allow private greed to run
away with its views on what is
best for 'tho country. A commis
sion government is hintod at, and
yot in tho same columns tho Com
mission now sitting is rippod up
tho back for its secretive methods.
Wo do not bolievo in tho methods
of the present Commission, and
having had this oxporienco wo seo
no reason why govornmont by
commission can bo mora accopt
ablo than government by tho peo
ple Of course when tho Adver
tiser talks about government by
commission, it is to bo takon for
granted that tho schomo will be a
fine ono if tho Advortisor const!
tuonts aro mado tho controling
Thoro ib no reason why tho
Republicans should givo tho Ha
waiian territory anything more
restricted than manhood suffrage,
As a territory tho islands will cut
no figuro in Presidential or Con
greBBional elections. Thero is no
reason why ovory American citi
zon in this territory should not
bo givon tho right of franchise
If in the course of timo tho pooplo
hero find cortain restrictions ac
cessary to tho welfaro of tho terri
tory, then will bo timo onough to
talk and lot tho peoplo decido for
themselves. Thoro aro somo
leaders hero who aro afraid of tho
people. We trust that tho Com
mission in its deliberations will
not allow itsolf to bo swayed by
tho theories of tho minority.

In tho midst of war muttorings
the Czar of Russia sounds a note
for international peaco. It is a
good thing to talk about but we
doubt whether any of tho Europ-

withdraw any orders for war equipment.

to arouBO the antagonism of every
shipping man in tho States. Those

waiian businoBS intorosts. Oer
tain it is that what is worth lmv

fear that by asking too mnoh
