KcstdluK in Honolulu
Most people iii Hawaii reoivo and
read only Iiopublican papers or
auch journals which have lmen pur
chased bj tho Republican literary
Judging from thestateuionts pub
lished in such papem whinh aro con
trolled and inspired by Iiipublicau
political committees everybody
must bollovo that the election of
McKinley iB an assured act and
that Bryans namo was mud It is
not newspapers however wliioh con
trol a presidential election To dny
it is not even money which can
swing the masses It is uol speech
making and gas buldozing and boy
cotting which will decided the fate
of the United States on tho of
The grnat bosses from mercantile
concerns from factories from farms
and docks havo carried thoir labor
ers to Canton by the thousands
Every man has had a McKinley
badge on his coat Every delega
tion has had a spokesman who un
der the eyes of tho boise oppressed
the allegianco of the workingraen to
MoKinloy How many of hum had
the name of the representative of
capital in their hearts How many
more the picture of Bryau on their
heart even if they obediently carried
McKinloys picture on the Lappet of
their coats to please the boises
Tho result of the election only can
tell The secret ballot will possibly
prove to the monopolists and
capitalists that the days have gono
by when money throats and promis
es can carry the votes of tho United
States Wo do not care to enter into
the merits of the causes represented
by the two candidates Wo only
submit that our contemporaries aro
wrong when thoy claim bat Mc
Kinley has a walk over Tho chances
of Bryan tho man who espouses the
cause of labor ugainst capital havo
never appeared better than thoy
were at tho latest independent ad
vices 4
As far as Hawaii is coucorned tho
election of either candidate will be
of no direct importance Whether
McKinley or Bryan sits in tho presi
dential chair in tho Whitj Houso
the annexation of the Hawaiian Isl
ands against tho expressed will of
tho Hawaiian people will remain
impossible The United States
which believo that tnoir gunboats
cau forco the Dardanelles may
find an easier conquest in Hawaii

It puzzles The Independent to
know how prostitutes cau be con

They suroly aro not so closely con

au incident which has rocoutly oc
curred in Sau Francisco which de
serves consideration by all intorest
od in Hawaiis future welfare That
by tho will of a foroign power its
subjects rosidiog within theb orders
of a friendly nation can without tho
pormissiou of that nation violato its
laws and carry out its own edicts
irrespective of th laws of tho United
States and the Stato of California is
something amazing in theso days of
law and order Tho action is fraught

but it is a warning Fortunately
for tho present at least the Chinese
in Hawaii belong to a different and
a higher piano than those of Cali
fornia especially among tho mer
cantile classes many of whom havo
allied themselves with the H wiiiau
race and reared families an honor to
themselves and tho country but tho
time might arrive when i ho condi

Tho Advertiser is indulging in tho
publication of a lot of idiotic rumors
Wo are told by the morning paper
that tho Hawaiian Xationil Band
will roturn by tho Australia duo
hero on Monday morning It ia very
doubtful tthothtr tho bojs will bo
ready and able to take that steamer
Tho Advertisers informant then
states that Princess Kaiulaui will
also return by tho Australia A tho
Princess at latest advices was in
Scotland the Australia rumoi must
naturally bo false Thosatoirjent that
2500 havo ben raised to give tho
reluming baud boys a grand luau is
tho most absurd oT the Advertisor
reports That tho baud boy will be
welcomed homo upon thir arrival
by their relations aud friends goes
without saying That a large amount
of money is to bo spent in celebrat
ing their advent is simply a streak
of imaginative fauoy on the part of
tho morning organ which at till
times is trying to boom tho good
times in Hawaii when everybody
else fenls tho hard times Tho
members of tho National Bnd will
find a hearty welcome here if they
return as good and law abiding citi

considerable ability will always bo

is well known hore throws a slur on i
tho docoased patriot whou ho says
that Nawahi was ungrateful to his
bonefaotors tho missionaries It is
truo that tho lato Nawahi receivod
his first education iu tho Lyman

paid woll through manual labor for
tho bauofits granted to him by tho
missionaries who arrived Jioro on
public subscription to savo souls
and who alwajs were ready to
feather thoir own nests and take tho
utmost advantagos possible of their
heathou pupils Tho lato Nawahi
was a staunch supporter of tho
missionary faction in Hawaii until
ho realized tho indisputablo fact
that tho Reform Party tho political
torm of tho missionaries proposed
to show tho cloven hoof and to con
trol tho Govornmont by suppressing
tho Hawaiiana Realizing tho fact
Nawahi stood by his countrymen
and on thoir behalf ho accused his
quondam friends of ingratitude to
their benefactors the Aliis of Ha
