THE CHINESE FAKE
Tho following editorial paragraph
from tho Sau Francif co Call will ho
of interest to our roadors
oun pnosPEonvE citizen au cm
As is known tho Hawaiian
Legislature was elected by the an
nexation party and is unanimous
for that policy It has passed and
repassed ratified and reratificd an
nexation and has threatened to of
fer the islands in tho markets of tho
world if a takor is not found in the
United States Only recently wo
were assured of the intense snti
Ohineso sentiment of this Legisla
ture and its consuming desiro to
welcome the Anglo Saxon as a
laborer and a citizen
The Labor Commissioner of
California who mado au official
pilgrimage to this Bhrino of anti
Ohinoso opinion returnod reporting
the Legislature looking and longing
for white hands in the cauo fields
and burning with a desiro to sonri
the pigtails back to the Flowery
Kingdom Oiio would have thought
billiards taboo in Honolulu because
the game is played with a cue which
might be confused with tho Celes
tial queue AU this was profession
but it fixed public attention in this
country and has permitted the oppo
site practice to go on riotously and
profitably
Under tho comtitution of tho
Hawaiian oligarchy there is provid
ed a Counoil of State tho analogue
of the Privy Counoil of the Queen
of Groat Britain and Empress of
India These councilors are tho ad
visors of President Dole who seems
frequently in need of advice These
councillors of state aro elected by
the Legislature Thero reoently oc
curred in this Council of Stato five
vaoauoits why is not explained
Perhaps they had grown weary ad
visiug tho President to keep up a
republican pretonso in a government
based upon the consent of only 2
per cout of tho governed Anyway
thore wora Gvo vacant chairs in the
great Council of State nnd under
tho constitution tho annexation
Legislature had to fill them For
the first vacancy Mr Geo R Carter
was a candidate Ho is a brother of
Mr Charles Carter who wont out
with tho Dole forces against the na
tive revolution in 1895 and was tho
only ouo killed Boiog tho brother of
the only martyr of tho oligarchy
Mr Carter expected to win hands
down in the Legislature but ho
didnt Mr Ah Chi aGkinoso gen
tleman Colestial from top to toe
smoll of punk and nut oil and all
was prosented as a candidato aud
electod over Mr Carter Ah Chi sits
now in Mr Doles Council of State
and advises tho President If Ha
waii be annoxod as a county of Cali
fornia wo may havo him as a mem
bor of our Legislature or if tho
Slateof Hawaii comes into tho Union
why may not Senator Ah Chi bo sent
to Washington
Whether there is a new hoavou or
not annexation Eoum3 to oped up a
now rarth to this country in which
thero ore gronl spectacular possi
bilities and not tho least among
thorn is our prospective follow citi
zen Ah Chi
WHO IS HE r
Wo aro pleased beyond expression
in temperate language to boo an old
aud esteemed reBidout of Hawaii in
print in an open letter to tho legis
lators of this funny littlo republic
Wo are not disposed to oriticize the
letter beyond sayinj that it throws
but littlo now light upon the ques
tion of licensing tho salo of opium
Tho bald assertion that during tho
period when tho salo of the insidi
ous drug was licensed the cost of
government and other oloemosynary
and punitivH institutions wob in
creased would havo more forco if
the Gguros had been produced By
all means furnish our legislators
with your figurif Colonel
Another thought in connection
with Colouol Allens open lottor is
tho uiotlnsly of the writer who for
tho first time in forty eight years
residence undertakes to discuss in
the rolo of roformor over his signa
ture quostions that must affoot the
weal or woe of his adopted country
Would that tho Johnny come-late-lies
who aro so prominent in pub
lic affairs might bo inoculated with
tho virus that bus run in the veins
of tho Colouol for lo these forty
eight years How much better off
those islands and our people would
bo
VJE AKE NOT THEBE
Our local jingoes ought to bo
pleased to road a paragraph which
wo aro in a position to endorse
From Harpers Weekly wo quote as
follows
The joint resolution to annex
Hawaii by law the treaty having
heen dropped apparently ban been
anticipated Wo aro quite sure that
open discussion of this resolution
will eventually kill it as secret dis
cussion has killed tho treaty

The shrewdness and loquacity of

tho following anecdote in Mr
Doraus book on Table Traits
boars witness to the justice of thoir
roputation
A member of the sisterhood in
Bristol had a 10 Bank of England
note and wished to exhange it for
gold which was then at a high pre
mium Accordingly sho entered a
bank and mado known her request
to be met with iuBtant refusal
The quiok witted woman without
oxhibiting any disappointment
thereupon asked the cashier to let
her have ten of tho banks XI note
in exchange for her
Tho exchange being com
