Inspector General Townsend Interprets
the Newlands Resolution
in That Spirit.
iSdltor Advertiser: Tho Newlanda
'rcBoIutlonH provldo that the revenu'n
durlvcct from tlio public landB of Hawaii
ahull be used for the benefit of
Hawaii, "for cducutlonnl nnd other
public purposes." Does this ulfrnlfy
simply "public purposes?" If so, why
were educational purposes specified?
Is It not a fair Inference from the uso
tf UiIb lanuunEe that such reveiiuij Is
not to be considered as ordinary revenue
to bo used for the Rcncral purposes
of the government, but for educational
and similar purposes?
If any such Inference Is Justltlablo
then that Inference must forever
stand, even though tliero Is nothing In
subscrjucnt legislation to nlllrm such a
purpose. The Newlands resolutions
were based upon the annexation treaty
which had been made between the diplomatic
authorities of the two govern
ments of Hawaii and tho United States,
and which had been ratified by Hawaii
to the full extent possible under our
lawH. In fact they took tho place of
such trcuty, and accordingly wore in
Hie nature of an agreement which Congress
could not honorably repudiate
even if It so desired. Hut evidence of
any desire to repudiate this agreement
Is entirely lacking. Is It not sufficiently
clenr thnt the revenues from the public
lands of Hawaii are to be regarded as
a r.pcclal fund to be used for a particular
class of public purposes?
Now the use of such rovonue merely
for the purposes of the current expenses:
of the work would simply relieve
the general appropriation bill and
thus the purpose to make of this n special
fund would bo defeated. The uso
of thlB money to creato a permanent
school fund, such as most of thu Stutes
possess, necmH to mo to meet tho requirement!)
of the resolutions, and at
the same time to be in lino with good
policy. The Incomo derived from this
fund could be used for tho morn extraordinary
expenses of the schools,
such as libraries, apparatus, Industrial
enterprises to be conducted for the
educational benefit of tho pupils, shops,
gardens, etc. Not many years will pass
before we shall wish to establish an
agricultural college, and this would
Htem to be a proper charge upon the
land fund. Of courso land now under
lensc nnd producing Incomo would bn
rcgnrded na nn Investment, tho Income
being Immediately available for proper
purposes.
Tho need of such a permanent fund
to tide us over tho stress nf new ex
penses Incident upon keeping up with
the advancing educational needs of the
country will ho npparent to anyone glv
Ing the subject careful attention, Tho
meed for an agricultural college, as
hinted above, would causo a .heavy
drain upon tho current revenue, at, tho
country, If tho expenses ur such an In
stitution had to be mitt from this
source, I am In, therefore, for tlio sot
ting aside of tho bulk of tho public
lands for school lands, In accordance
with the custom In other Territories
and States, and In accordance with the
spirit of the Newlands resolutions.

LONDON, Mny W, 2 n. m. The Dally
Mull publishes the following dispatch
from tho Earl of Uosslyn, who was a civilian
prisoner at I'rctora, nnd who
to have been released:
"PItETOIUA. Mny 30, 11:10 o. in. Pretoria
will be occupied in about two hours
without resistance. The President hns
gone to Wntcrvalbovcr.
"Tho hurgomuslcr, De Sousa, Is author
Ized to receive the llrltlsh. He, w'th nn
lnDuoritlnt committee of citizens. Including
Chief Justice Cregorowskl, has been appointed
to preserve I fe and property during
the interregnum. ,
"Everything Is quiet, but crowds are
waiting expectantly in Church Square for

Vice Consul Wood Insisted upon twenti
officers being liberated on parolo to go to

highly praised.
"I was permitted 10 accompany the of

LONDON, May 31, 3 n. m, Yesterday at
noon the llrltlsh were only about two
hours' march from Prctor a, and the
Iloer military farces had abandoned tin
city. This Intelligence comes from tin
Hunter agent at tho Transvaul capital

dispatch. Tho two messuges loft about
(ho same time. At 2 o'clock this morn
ing tho War Olllco had received no newt,
from Lord Roberts which tho olllclult
would inako public, but It Is assumed that
tho press udvlces are correct. Most of
the morning papers, through tho courtety
of tho Dally Mull, print Lord Ilosslyn's
dlBpatch, and comment upon It, treating
tho war as ended.
Some of the moro cautious critics think
that guerilla warfare Is likely to bo curried
on (or some, tlnlo to come, In various
parts of the conquered territory. All tho
Door forces aro dissolving..
Iord Roberts apparently has not yet
taken quantities of artillery arms or
stores. Largo bodies of Docth must still

tho Dclngoa Hay railway. It should not
bo confused with Waterval, ten miles
north of Pretoria, where tho llrltlsh prisoners
aro confined. Watervalhover Is a
small place In a mountulnous country.
Tho scut of tho Uocr Government what
there Is loft of It will probably bo

A dispatch from Lourcnzo llurquez, dated
Wednesday, Bays: "Commundunt
ICntus has surrendered Johannesburg to
Lord Roberts. By tonight's train from
Pretoria arrived a few aiecks, who say
they were told to leavo Pretoria Tuesday.
They nlllrm that tho train op which they
left wns shelled by tho llrltlsh, and that
half of tho train was cut off, tho remain-dir
steaming away. This Incident probably
occurred ut Elundsfonteln Junction,
Passengers from Pretoria assert that tho
town Is utterly demoralized. There Is n
mad rush for thu coast. Flvo tralnlouds
of fugitives aro expected tonight."
LONDON, May 30,-Tho War Olllco bus

Imperial Ycornunry tho Government's
grutltudo for the service of "this forco
of well-equipped fighting men, to whoso
udmlrublo services In tho field Ixird

Thu War Olllco adds thnt tho time has
arrived when tho corps of Imperial Yeomanry
