Governor Carter Asks the President to Visit
Us After Inspecting Panama
Governor George R. Carter is sending the President, by the Alameda mail,
a formal invitation to visit Hawaii after hft has finished, with his Panama Canal
The old objection to a President boarding a vessel and getting outside the
three-mile limit of the shores of the United States has passed away, President
Roosevelt himself having broken this old tradition on his return from Xew
Orleans to Washington on a United States warship. A United States warship
is, to all intents and purposes, the soil of the United States, and while aboard
such a vessel the President is on territory of the country.
On this showing, Governor Carter has taken advantage of President Roose
velt's proposed visit to Panama to invite him to come out to Hawaii, after
which" he could visit San Francisco before returning to Washington. Governor
Carter's letter is as- follows:
Executive Chamber, Honolulu, Hawaii,
July 10, 1906.
The President: From the Associated Press dispatches, it appears that you
are planning a trip to Panama. If so, it may be possible that you contemplate
returning by way of the Pacific, in order to visit the stricken city of San
Francisco and there have an opportunity to encourage her citizens in the. ardu
ous work they have before them. Should you do this, it would not consume
much extra time for a vessel to bring you by a triangular course to Hawaii,
the " Geographical Center of the United States;" and on behalf of the people
of thi3 Territory, I desire to extend to you an invitation to visit us.
No one. can doubt but that such a trip wouk enable you to better perform
the duties of your high office; and I need not add that it would stimulate
patriotism and loyalty in Hawaii to a marked degree.
Very sincerely yours,
(Signed) G. E. CARTER.
