yU If odookSytenlay morning. In

of Hamuli's

The scene resembled very much the
ooramonlcs attending the raising of tho
American Hag over the Executive
building. Tho element of Eadness, so
notleoablo on that memorable occasion,
however, was absent yesterday. Rev.
E. S, Timoteo. chaplain of the day, offered
a prayer in Hawaiian, at the conclusion
of which E. A. retiring
Minister of Foreign Affairs,
arose and read the commission signed
by President Mckinley, which made
Sanford U. Dole the Governor of the
Territory of Hawaii. Chief Justice
Walter V. Frear then administered the
. oath of oflicc and Governor Dole signed
.the' attestation thereto in tiie presence
or the assemblage.
Trom a portfolio which was handed
lhc"Governor by his private secretary,
ho drew tho manuscript of the following
which he read In a clear
and distinct voice audible to all present:

of tho monarchical authority to causo

strong American sentiment to gravitate
Irrcslstably to the United States,
choosing its own destiny rather than
Jeftvlng it to be decided by others.
Hawaii owes its remarkable progress
In civilisation largely to the wise
statosiuanshlp of Kamehameha HI. and
other ltJgh chiefs, in the early part of
his rolgu. These men and women
weighed the counsels of their new
, advisers from across the sea, and so-lo&d
tho best as a basis of action. A
fow months of peaceful revolution
for an advance In civil
which has. in analogous cases,
required years of devastating civil war.
Personal rights wero guaranteed: the
absolute authority of the sovereign was
voluntarily surrendered for constitutional
limitations; tho vast landed Interests
of king aud chiefs tho rich
prlivs of the victories of Kamehameha
tha first, were divided and adjusted in
sottforadty Vflth the new recognition Of
the rights of tho common people, and
- thejercation of corporate government.
" Jt fa not easy for us at this time to
giro due weight to this organizing
work of those chiefs and their foreign
advisers. Had the former been less
- public spirited, or had the latter been
Jess sincere. In all probability the history
of many another tragic couflht
lMtween the forces of civilisation and
barbarism, would have been repeated
here. .
The influence or this peaceful reform
in the civil system has been to this day
constant and controlling in the relations
between tho Hawaiian nnd the
foreigner. To this influence we may
largely credit the comparatively peaceful
settlement of the disturbed condition
of affairs incident to tho
tion of the monarchical system".
To Hawnllans this occurrence was
especially painful and bawilderiug. Accustomed

With the most limited resources and

The United States always the protector
of Hawaii has approached the
question of annexation in the most considerate
manner. With great deliberation
has our request been acceded to
and finally consummated with a regard
that we can never forget '-"
The joint resolution of annexation
guarantees perpetual union; the non-
appucauon 01 American iana
laws to oar limited public domain; tho
use of land revenues for the solo benefit
of our population for educational
and other public purposes, and the payment
of our public debt.
Upon these guarantees and tho principles
of the constitution of the United
States and the friendship of the American
people for Hawaii, has the Territorial
Act. the groundwork of our new
civil system, been builded.
Our Legislature and our Judiciary
are restored to us without fundamental
changes; American citizenship, manhood
suffrage and representation in
Congress are conferred upon all Hawaiian
citizens; only Hawaiian citizens
may qualify for the office of Governor
or other offices, under tho Territorial
government; our laws are substantially
retained, save such as became unnecessary
under the now conditions.
Hawaii hns no longer a separate Independence,
but it Is now a component
part of an independent and powerful
nation. Its limitations are slight and
Its freedom of action large enough for
the present. lt fundamental law affords
a large measure of self government
and protects us from the rule of
In our composite community the
great world races are well represented:
Polynesian, Anglo-Saxon, Frank and
Turanian. Becauso of this the difficulties of
of governmnnt arc much increased.
For the protection of the representative
and other phases of modern civilized
government, it has been deemed essential
to refuse citizenship to representatives
of tho Chinese and Japanese nations
which together form a large part
of our population, although some of
these are undoubtedly well qualified fo
tno duties of citizenship.
" The arbitrary, denial of the franchise
and consequent represenfalfon'to thesefl
places upon the rest of the communllty
whether as voters, legislators, the
courts of the executive, the consideration
of the interests of these
persons. Neglect of this obligation
would not only be an injustice to
them but would inevitably menace the to
welfare of all.
As a corrective to race prejudice, our
educational system reaches nil children
of whatever nationality. The- Chinese
child may pursue Chinese studies at
somo part of the day or night, but he
must take up his English lessons. In
regular school hours. As a result the
boys of our public schools of all nationalities
compete with each other in
their school room work and play ball
together on the play ground, llyjbe

The pressing demands of agricultural J.
corporations for cheap field labor, together T.
with "their great Influence, will

to the development of such a
citizen population as shall safeguard
the political future of Hawaii. The
two enterprises are mutually hostile.
Tho on.e is interested in men as machines,
the other as factors in the development
of the state.
As the control of such corporations
gradually passes Into the hands of
those who are without the restraining
influences of local and traditional as-,
soclations, and are not interested in
the social growth of the Hawaiian community,
this danger may become more
threatening than heretofore.
Every ouo who Is resident here, not
merely to amass wealth, but to live a
home life and perhaps to bring up children
who will necessarily become attached zi
to the country. Its climate and

In having this matter rightly solved.
This means that It shall net only be

development of a pure family life in

'Hundreds of People Join in the

beautiful scene. like a picture
from .airyland." These were the expressions
heard on. every hand last
night in describing the inaugural ball.
The grounds and building presented a
most beautiful sight as one drove up
from the King-street side of the building.
Streamers of read, white and blue
lights extended along the driveway
from the entrance of the building to
the street; while over tho front of the
building red, white and blue lights, interspersed
with flags of Hawaii and the
Nation, presented an effect that it is
impossible to-describe.
And what a glorious picture that was
inside, with all the beautiful toilets of
tha hundreds of handsome women
present Bright, cheery faces greeted
one on every hand, all joining in the
joys of tne evening. Care and business
was laid aside for the time, and fathers
and mothers joined with sons and
daughters in making the evening enjoyable
and sharing In the pleasure of
being disciples of Terpsichore.
The Representative hall and the temporary
pavilion erected on the east si.le
the building were devoted to dancing,
the Government band and a native
orchestra oelng situated on a platform
between the Representative hall and
the pavilion. These organizations alternated
in furnishing the music The
program was an elaborate one of
twenty dances, the front being a fac
s.mile of the American flag, the Hawaiian
flag ornamenting the back. It
made a pretty souvenir of the first In-.111
sural ball of Hawaii.
Dole attended for
over an hour, holding an informal reception
in the pavilion, where hundreds
of people, who could not attend
the morning reception, paid their respects.
Ample provision was made to cater
the hunger and thirst of the people,
supper being .served in a large tent in
the rear of the Government building,
while lemonade stands were erected between
the band stand and the legislative
From 9 o'clock till 12 dancing was
carried on under difficulties, owing to
the large crowds on the floor. After
that the older people began retiring,
leaving the youth and beauty to enjoy
themselves until the gray dawn was
lighting up the east.

VIGAN, Luzon, June 2 (via Manila,
June 3). Major March, with his detachment
of the Thirty-third Regiment,
overtook what is believed to
have been Agnlnaldo's party on May 19
at Lagat, about 100 miles northeast of
Vlgan. The Americans killed or
wounded an officer supopsed to be
Agulnaldo, whose body was removed
by his followers. Agulnaldo had 100
men. Major March 12o.
The American commander reached
La Boagan, where Agulnaldo had made
his headquarters since March G, on May
7. Aguinaldo "had fled seven hours before,
leaving all the beaten trails and
traveling through the forest along the'
beds of streams. Toward evening on
May 19 Major March struck
outpost about a mile outside of Lagat.
killing four Filipinos and capturing
two. From the latter he learned
that Agulnaldo had camped there for
the night. Although exhausted and
half starved, Major March's men entered
Lagat on the run. They saw the
insurgents scattering Into the bushes
or-over the plateau. A thousand yards
beyond the town, on the mountainside,
the figures of 25 Filipinos, dressed in
white with their leader on a gray
horse, were- silhouetted against the
sunset The? Americans fired a volley
and saw the officer-drop from hlslicrse.
His. followers fled, carrying the body.
The Americans, on: reaching, the. spot,
caught tfec&orac, which wasrlchly saddled.
Blood from a badly wounded man
was on the animal and on the ground.
The saddlebags contained Aguinaldo's
diary and some private papers,
One of theseVwas addressed:
"To tho Civilized Nations."
It protested against tho American occupation
of the Philippines. There
were also found copies of Senator
speech, translated into Spanish
and entitled: "The Deathknell of the
Filipino People."
Major March, believing that the Filipinos
had made for a river, which is
tributary to the Chico, followed it for
two davs, reaching Tiao, where he
learned that a party of Filipinos had
descended the river on May 20 on a raft
with the body of a dead or wounded
man upon a litter, covered with palm
There Major March reviewed hU
'command, shoeless and exhausted, and
picked out 24 of the freshest men, with
whom ho beat the surrounding country
for six days longer, but without finding
any trace of the Insurgents. The Americans
pushed on and arrived at Aparri
on May 29.
The officer shot was either Aguinaldo
or his adjutant, and as the horse was
richly caparisoned, it Is a fair presumption
that it was Aguinaldo.
The soldiers of General Young, military
governor of Northwestern Luzon,
captured early last month an insurgent
officer with papers revealing Aguinaldo's
whereabouts. General Young immediately
organized for pursuit, giving
Major March a chance to finish the
work begun in November. Major March
left Candon on May 10 and hurried
north toward La Boagan, while Colonel
Hare, with a battalion, divided into
two parts, started from Rangue, province
of Abra. covering tho trails westward.
The garrison in the Cagayan
valley "was disposed of In such a way
as to guard the, avenues .of escape
Spies heralded the approach of
Major March with signal fires. On
reaching La Boagan he apprehended a
letter in Aguinaldo's handwriting, the
ink of which was hardly dry, addressed
to an officer of guerrillas of the Filipino
army, and saying:
"There having arrived this morning
at La Boagan a hostile column from
Bokore. I have set out with all my
force. My road has no destination."
This was signed "Colonel David," a
sobriquet. Aguinaldo called at the
presidencia. whence he isrued decrees
and where his followers celebrated
Easter with a banquet at a triangular
table, when speeches were made eulogizing
Gregorio del Pilar. That night

LlSt Of
..Made by
T. Atkinson to to -Superintendent
of Public Instruction-Other
Appointments to
be Announced Today.
Among the new Territorial officers
by far the most Important to the Territory
generally is the Superintendent
of Public Wrcrks. In selecting
J. A McCandless to fill this position.
Governor Dole has made no mistake.
The office requires a man of great
executive ability and activity, as well
as one possessed of a wide knowledge
of the needs of the different districts
of the Islands generally. In these respects
few excel the new appointee.
Personally acquainted from frequent
visiting with tne roads on all the other
Islands, he is enabled to judge accurately
of their'needs and guard against"
waste. As the author of the. wide-tire
act, passed by the last Legislature, he
has also a personal interest in good
roads and their maintenance. His experience
in the late Legislature as a
prominent member of the committee
which had to do with all the roads,
bridges and public" works of all kinds
throughout the" Islands will also stand
him in good stead.
E. P. Dole, the new Attorney-General,,
has fairly earned his promotion
by years cf hard work as the deputy
under auilth and
Cooper. Well read, of scholarly attainments,
besides being an author and
novelist of growing repute, he is possessed
of ail the requisites for the office,
wnich under the new regime being
practically cut loose from the Police
Department, will enable him to devote
hV; whole time to the duties cf the legal
adviser of the Governor and prosecuting
officer of the Territory. He is a
nephew of the Governor and has been
a resident of the islands some six
A. T. AtKlnson, the new Superintendent
of Public Instruction, is not new
to his duties, having served in a similar
capacity, both under the monarchy
and the Republic. Like Senator
he brings legislative experience
to assist him in the proper administration
of this important office,
having been a prominent member of
the Committee on Education in the
lower house of the last Legislature. It
was largely owing to the effort's of bis
committee that we now have the
Kaiulani and Kaahumanu schools
in existence to-day. As of the
Star for the past three years, Mr. Atkinson
has become widely known, as
well as through his recent appointment
by President McKinley to the position
of Superintendent of the Census tor
tnls Territory. Personally acquainted
with every school district In the Islands,
if not with every little one-room
schoolhouse, the Interests cf tlw Department
of .Education will be in safe
hands for the next four years. j
J. F. Brown, the Commissioner of
Public Lands, virtually succeeds himself.
He is probably the best-posted
man on land titles and affairs generally
in the Islands. He is now in Washington,
where he will gain an insignt into
the American way of conducting vhe
land bureau, which will enable him to
instltuto many needed changes m this
department, subject, cf course, to the
commissioner at Washington.
H. C. Austin, formerly Auditor-General,
becomes plain "Auditor." His
duties, however, will remain the same,
except that he now has to shoulder ell
the responsibility of his acts, instead of
sharing them with the Ministei of
Financa or the Executive Council. His
deputy, Mr. Meyers, has been reappointed
by the Governor, and will mon
tlnue to serve the public
As HlKh Sheriff. A 31. as-i
sunies the same duties as those performed
by him as Marshal of the Republic,
but in addition, beccmaj the
actual head of the police of the Islands
instead of only the nominal one. Sheriff
Brown, however, will be found euanl
to the additional responsibility and all
that it Implies. The appointment was
regarded as a certainty from the start.
Professor Alexander, as the Surveyor
cf the new Territory, also loses the
"General " from his title, but the public
arc the gainers by his remaining in
.office. Having devoted a lifetime to the
duties of his position, it has almost
been regarded as a sinecure, and, the
office falls to him as a matter oPcoarse.
Other appointments will probably be
announced by the Governor to-day.

To he .Replaced by Regulars for
Duty in the Philippines '
Changes, to Begin in
WASHINGTON, June 4. Adjutant-General
Corbin said that under
the law the entire volunteer army in
the Philippines will go- out of existence
June 30, 1901, and the problem be
fore the War Department is hew to
get the 31,000 men of that army home
from the Philippines before the date
named, at the same time relieving
them with troops of the regular establishment
General Corbin says it is proposed to
maintain an army of 40,000 regulars in
the Philippines so long as required, and
to do this it will be necessary to draw
upon the troops now In Cuba. The
army in the Philippines at present
numbers Oi.000 men, equally divided
between regulars and volunteers. Thn
homeward movement cf tne volunteers
will begin early in November. They f
will be brought home, so-far as possible,
in the order of their departure
from the United States.
The plan is to have all the men at
their homes and their accounts with
the Government closed on the last day
of their term of enlistment This is a
task of enormous proportions and will
tax the powers of the entire military
establishment to the utmost from now
until it Is tuljy accomplished.
Orders have been Issued for the assembling
of the Sixth Cavalry at .San
Francisco for transport to Manila. One
detachment of that regiment will leave
about the 15th inst and another about
the 1st of July. It Is believed that
I many cf the troops In Cuba can be re
lieved from duty in that ccuntir soon
after the elections there on Juno 15th. X
