Among the mainland echoes of that Flag decision ore is not unl-kely to hear the decorous ha-ha of the Supreme Court. , ., Between hurrahing for Wilcox and asking privately whether he was going to sell out, the Independent delegates vase their vocal chords a severe strain yesterday. Ns- ' ''Let me tell you what Wilcox did,' said an enthusiastic native orator yes terday. And then he talked for half an hour wMMsftt telling how Wilcox tried to ,do,,wl Qaevn out of her rron land claim. 4 - Judges Oalbraiih and Humphrt-ys have used their sixty day experieure M the bee. h to su h good advantage that It gives them no trouble at all to overrule the reoent decision of the Fed- I eral Circuit Court In the Southern Dls- trl t of New York. a I ' When a nat.. e. invention turns down your Uncle Samuel Damon there can be no mistaking its antl-haole impulse.

Th Independents named a few out- sld haoles Ktt la- eUR OH tne color line argument but they reserved the substantial majority of nominations for themselves. The election of the llcket would mean a thoroughly anti-Am-rlf nn legislature bent on doing all the mischief It could. The general impression of the East ern press that Honolulu was not even civilised enough b-rore annexation to have bargain rales, shows that even the great American newspapers take a provincial view of things. Honolulu was a aettkd Amerlrnn city before San Kranclsco changed lis name from Yer la Kuena and it h;o lurikc l en ahead of most New Kngland cities of 60.000 wnni. in u. ..,. i.i 1 1- r comforts .

The meaning of the IndftDend. nt threat Is that the Wilcox people d.- . , , . niana all these offices for themselves and hole, by refusirg to confirm the present Incumbents, to oblige Governor the functions of Government, to name men of Wll. ox s own choice.

That a Wlleo Senate could not hold up the Territorial Government If It tried to Is proved by the organic act. A part of Section N reads as follows: All persons holding office In the Ha waiian Islands at the time this act lakes effect shall continue to hold their respective offices until their successors are appointed and qualified, but not be yond the end of the first session of the Snats of the Territory of Hawaii un ions reappointed as herein provided." Another sect, n gives the Governor the right of appointment when th- Senate Is not in session. Thus If no successors are appointed and qualified the Ha waiian Executive may. after the re journment of the Legislature, reappoint the old Incumbents. Supposing the Legislature should withhold appropriations for salaries the game would still be In the Governor's hands. Witness Sec. M of the Organic law which reads as follows: "That In case of failure of the Legisla ture to pass appropriation bills pro viding for payments of the r.e.essary current expenses of currying on the govern nit j-.t and meeting Its .legal ob ligations as the same are proyided for t.v ttft rVw.n i.vistinr 1nw the rrYfrror : " , ' f th shall, upon the adjournment or tne I.- .-:lt-.- call it into extra session f.,r tfiS consideration of appropriation I bills, and until the legislature shpJl . ,k. ,- ,., i advice of the governor, make 'such pay- rm-nts. for which purpose the sums ajh proprlated In the last appropriation Mils shall be deemed to have been re- ! appropriated. And all legislative . ad J other appropriations made prior to the ; date when this act shall take effect. shall be available to the government of UM Territory of Hawaii." ' What would happen If the Senate ' rfrt tn confirm the Dole annoint- ments? Why the Governor -would sim ply tell the officials to stay where they WWTt and after the Stnate had ad journed he would cause their salaries to be paid as usual until the Legisla ture had met again. If, anticipating such a course the Legislature should refuse tar make salary appropriations equal to the necessity of "carrying on the government." the Hawaiian execu tive would probably go ahead ffe be fore, paying salaries on basis of sums previously appropriated. The law as it stands does not empower the Legisla ture to coerce the Executive by locking up the resources of administration. either bv the refusal of appropriations ' or by making salaries so small that Constitution, but are creatures exclusive officials cannot be found to work for j i Torl 55 them.

CONSTITUTION AND FLAG. j Does the Constitution neceiartly fol low the flag into annexed territory?

There can, then, be a United States and a jurisdictional district, not nesessarily subject to the full authority of the or- ganic law, existing under the flag a place where the fact of American sov ereignty is recognized but where the people cannot claim citizenship until Congress shall have specially be stowed it.
