Uowey's socontl statement ns to his
availability for tho Presidential nomi
nation la a. very iiollto order to tho
boomers to "shut up."
Tho peoplo of I law .ill nro always
liberal In their donations to worthy
charities, but this does not discount the
value of Wrny Taylor's efforts as the
active leader who plans the work.
The decision of tho Young Men's He
search Club to take up tho discussion of
municipal problems Is the beginning of
active work for tho future, municipali
ties that the situation calls for.
Having received 20,000 applications
for pensions as a result of tho Spanish
war, It Is suggested that tho Philippine
campaign bo ended quickly. Tho na
tion will not desert Its duty though tho
applicants for pensions reach thrice
. While Great Britain is busy with the
Boers, this year's famine In India
covers an area of 350,000 square miles,
lu which Is a population of 30,000,000.
Tho economists point to tho Inhuman
ity of man. Tho average citizen gets
muddled over the nffalis Hurt u higher
power seems to illrect.
The public Is Informed that while the
New York Sun has not ceased to be a
great paper, it Is not as great as'lt used
to bo beforo expressing a very posltlvo
opinion on tho transition period action
In Hawaii. This Information Is vnlu
ablo and Is likely to causo distress of
mind in tho Sun offlce. Wo doubt, how
ever, that pertinent comment on affairs
In Hawaii will causo tho Sun nny loss
of prestige In tho United States. The
people of tho United States well know
that tho New York Sun does not In
dulge In "peanut politics," nor has It a
record for being misled. It's motives
arc honest and It Is tho recognized ex
ponent of jirond American principles.
LOCAL APPOINTIVE POWER.
The refusal of President McKluley to
accept tho resignation of Mr. Damon
as Minister of Flnanco brings up nn in
teresting question as to Mr. Dole's au
thority to accept resignations and flit
vacancies thnt occur In tho prominent
oiaclal placcB In tho defunct Itcpubllc
of Hawaii. Acting upon tho mem
orandum forwarded by tho Secretary of
State, In answer to a query as to the
appolntivo authority of the local exe
cutive, tho government has gone on
filling vacancies ns they occurred. Tho
public hns known of no objections
from Washington authorities to
this course. Whllo Mr. Dolo would
doubtless have accepted Mr. Damon's
resignation had It been forwarded to
him, Mr. Damon's good Judgment In
presenting his statement of readiness
to withdraw from ofllco prevented any
complications and possibly averted a
reversal of tho local gqvernment's ac
tion by the President.
The question now arises whether In
event of a vacancy occurring on the
Supremo bench, the local government
has nuthorlty to go farther than to re
commend tho new appointee The
Dulletln raises this question because It
learns on good authority "that Chief
Justice Judd docs not dcslro to return
to the bench. Tho appointment of Mr.
Judd'a successor will bo a matter for
consideration by the public, and It Is
an open question whether his resigna
tion Is not now practically in the hands
of the ofllclalu.
This paper would be tho last to at
tempt to forco tho resignation of the
Chief Justice, but wo seo no reason why
tho puollc should not bo taken into tho
confidenco of tho Executlvo and given
an opportunity to at least have a word
In determining who shall All ono of the
most important positions In the Terri
tory. Tho Uullotln does not
believe In many of. tho principles ex
pounded by our local Supreme Court,
but this dissent from Judicial opinions
does not lessen our high personal es
teem of Mr. Judd, or our belief that be
sacrificed himself to carry on work
which others forced upon him.
We believe tho situation calls for
speedy action in placing tho Supreme
-Court on an organlzod, stable basis.
Continued absence of tho Chief Justice
cannot result In other than unsatisfac
tory conditions. Ono term of court bos
passed with members of the bar or
Judges of tho lower courts brought Into
service and wo are now on the ovo of
another term In which there will be no
decrease of tho amount of work or the
Jmportnneo of the cases to be passed
upon. Public interests nro not nesi
served by amplifying our anomalous
ana chaotic conditions with further
anomaily and chaos In the Supremo
In -casting; about for a Chief Justice
among local citizens tho popular mind
naturally turns to Judgo Cooper, who
was at ono time practically Bolcctod for
tno Supremo llench, but owing to his
bolng a "newcomer" was pulled down
to mako way for another. As Circuit
Judgo Mr. Cooper made a record which
in the days of bitterest local political
feeling was accepted ns abovo reproach.
Called to tho Foreign Offlco ho proved
Himself the stauuehest American of the
wholo Executive circle and led the way
forceful loyalty to tho United States
when those about him faltered at tho
critical Juncture brought about by fac
ing tho poslsbllltlcs of war. Had ho re
mained on tho bench his promotion
would bo ncccpted as a foregone conclu
sion, and If there Is nny local opposi
tion to tho fulfilment of that conclusion
at the present day, It Is likely to
como principally from those whom ho
..as served faithfully and nsslstcd by
Whether tho President will select
Hawaii's Chief Justice from tho Main
land or not has yet to bo determined,
nenco It behooves tho local Executive to
go slow In exercising Its nuthorlty. Tho
Chief Justice of Hawaii's Supremo
Court Is an officer of qulto as much Im
portance as tho governor, and with tho
territory soon to bo n fact and tho
wholo organization of tho government
10 bo changed, tho people have a right
to call a halt In the, local cxerclso of
tho appointive power until specifically
authorized by tho President.
(Xow York Tribune.)
"My rountry, right or wrong," Is a
toast which had a meaning onco for
thoso who wcro nblo to read anything
below tho surface, and for such peoplo
lias ono still. No tlmo need bo wasted
In pointing out tho foolish things It
docs not mean, nut this It always
means, that no mnn can find tho faint
est excuse, In and sincerity or eccentri
city of Individual belief, for giving
aid ami comfort to armed enemies of
his country, whether by speech or
printed words or votes. Tho crime of
treason Is ono for which a man can
never find Justification, no matter what
his Individual belief, becauso tho bles
sing of personal freedom comes only I
with the condition, accepted with the
solemn oath of allegiance, that It shall
nctcr bo so exercised as to aid tho arm
ed foes of tho Nation.
Tho necessary condition of civiliza
tion Is that hearty allegiance and sup
port shall bo given to the Government
whenever Its decision Is duly declared
in accordance with Its constitutional
forms and limitations. Whnfovcr has
been up to that tlmo the private opin
ion of certain Individuals, for which
they hn e striven by legal means wiyi
all manly earnestness, becomes on tho
Instant tho law, sacicd to every loyal
man, against which no voice or hand
can bo raised an long ns u vestige of
armed resistance to tho sovereign au
thority remains. Tho necessary con
dition of freedom In private Judgment,
thought and speech Is that every man
shall submit to tho wlU of tho majority
expressed by constitutional methods;
and not merely submit, but hold ready
his fortune and his 11 fo to uphold that
will If troachcrously assailed. All
know and frequently say that persons
who aro not capable of such sinccro
and unshrinking loyalty nro not fit for
any part In Bolf-governmeut ot free
Institutions. Yet even lu stating tho
fact fow come near realizing how wldo
and lmpassablo Is tho gulf that separ
ates such persons from all possibility
of being loyal citizens of a freo and
solf-govorning country. Tho temper
which will submit to no rulo savo that
of ono's own inflamed vanity is further
removed from all civilized llfo than
that of nlno-tonthB of tho savages, who
can uphold a ruler for tho sako of the
Opposition to law nftcr Its enact
ment, patient and earnest effort to
chnngo public opinion about it and get
it repealed, Is consistent with perfect
loyalty provided thero Is no armed re
sistance to be encouraged by such ef
forts. But tho Instant that condition
arises it becomes tho first and roost
sacred duty of overy citizen to refrain
from nny word or net which can glvo
aid nml comfort to tho rebollton. Men
who sincerely mean to be honorable
and faithful to their oaths of citizen
ship cannot find it hard to draw tho
lino. Tho question Is always one of
fact. If thero is In fact armed resist
ance to national authority, and if any
word or act docs In fact glvo encour
agement and support to that resistance,
It cannot bo called anything except
treason. If any voto cast Is ono which
must In fact glvo aid and comfort to
enemies of the United States, It is tho
voto of a traitor, and tho first duty of
every citizen is to rcallzo that he can
not cast any such voto.
