And all cltisens of the United States resident in the Hawaiian Islands who were resident ttere on or since August 12. ISflS. nnd all the citixens of the United States who shall HEREAFTER RESIDE IN THE TERRITORY OF HAWAII FOR ONB YEAR shall be citizens of the TcrritoiT of Hawaii," The one-year residence was for those who should hereafter become residents of Hawaii: thai is. those becoming restdenu after the Organic Act took effect It wa well known to the of the Organic Act of Hawaii that there werhuiidreds of residents in the Territory of European birth who had newer beeoute cltisens of Hawaii. They ksd never taten the oath cf allegiance under the monarchy and under the and the provisional government no opportunity was offered thani to do so. The best they could do under th dose corporation manner In which tfc government was run was to secure letters of denization. . In order that those residents, many Of (hew being among the most prominent business men and property-owners of the Islands, might immediately become citixens with all the rights of American citizens and citlrens of Ha- I waii So. 100 of the Organic Act provided: "That for the purposes of naturalization under tao laws of the United "Stt rasMeace in tho Hawaiian islands prior to the taking eifect of this act snail h deemed equivalent to resident- in the United States AXD IN THE TBKH1TORY OF HAWAII, and the reqalromcnt of a previous ;.on ot intention to become a citizen of to United States and to renounco f.rmr ailegtanco shall not apply to persons who hate resided in said Islands at least five years prior to the tak ing effect ot this ?ct: hut all other provisions of the laws of the United States relating to naturalization shall, so far as applicable, apply to persons In the said Islands." "Shall he deemed equivalent to resi dence in the United States AND JX THE TERRITORY OF HXWAILT Could anything be dearer than this as to the ciUreaship of aliens residing Jn Hawaii five years or more previous to me taking effect of the Organic Act just ss soon as they have taken the oath of allegiance to the United States? Tli? are not merely citixens of the Territory of .Hawaii so far as the franchise is concerned, but they are "Citizens of the United States and of the Territory of Hawaii juchi citizenship carrying with It all the rights and Vllccas of dUzess&Ip. incladlsg the holdtegr of oSce.

Every man who knows anything of I the adwfegioa of aliens to citizenship in the United States knows that a cttixen has all the rights and privileges of a citizen. holding oOee. jaet as soon as his Anal papers nave been gr&n&sd him. AS 3 eornespondent pertinently says ia another column in referring to the Attorney-General most remarkable opinion, "Have we in this a system of special rights, somewhat similar to that under the republic; the privilege of voting without being: a citizen of the Territory?" It locks Terr ranch like this opinion was rendered for the express purpose of trying to continue in force the old system whereby a little close compact should remain forever in control. , The time has -past for this sort of thing.- Hawatt Is now an American Territory, with a just nnd liberal Organic Act equivalentto a State- no one is bound br a mere ex parte opinion of an Attorney-General. If such a clear overriding of the law Is attempted by those in authority, as this most remarkable opinion clearly suggests, then there is a remedy through the United States Court, which will jsoon be in existence here, and where citizens of the Islands can go, confident of receiving justice and an honest interpretation of the plain English of the Organic Act MEET IT FEARLESSLY. In raising the question of citizenship of officeholders in Hawaii The Republican seems to have stirred up something Of a hornet's nest But"there is an casy way out of the entire difficulty and that is for thoso men holding ofllce who are not citizons, to Tesign and for Governor Dole to appoint new men in their places, and in case they do not resign to remove them and appoint new men, anyway. True, this would result in removing some very good officials, but that is their misfortune. Hawaii is now an American Territory, and it is required by the Organic Act that all officers appointed shall be citizens of the Territory of Hawaii. While there are a number of good men in public ofllce in this Territory that The Republican, along with every good citizen, would dislike to see removed, it believes they should be removed and Jjnbl. jdtiani. xt tbo T!prrltarxLoCLlTa Act requires. True, the Organic Act provides that "Ai persons holding office in the Hawaiian Islands at the time this act takes'bffect shall continue to hold their respective offices until their successors are appointed and qualified." but it also provides for removal by the Governor and for the commissioning of officers, "which commissions shall, unless such appointments are confirmed, expire at the end ot the next session of the Senate." For the Governor to take no action upon these appointments until the legislature meets, and allow aliens to con tinue Holding a number of the best offices in the Territory, as the Attorney-General suggests, in another column, would be cowardly, and we do not believe Governor Dole will try to hide his responsibility in the premises behind auch a weak subterfuge as the Attorney-General intimates. As Governor, he has the power of removal and the powor of appointment. An unlooked-for situation has arisen, a disagreeable situation for the Governor, no doubt, but the only manly way is to meet it bravely and fearlessly and place Hawaiian citizens on guard a3 the organic law of the Territory clearly demands shall be done. TREAT AIiL ALIKE. "-The best way to get an obnoxious law repealed is to enforce It We do not believe in dead-letter laws, but at the same time we do not ran. tn o.- I obnoxious laws enforced to the incon venience ot me taxpayers until the Legislature Is in sight We agree with a morning paper that there should be no discrimination, but why does our contemporary, in referring to the Lons Branch raid, discriminate against the Waikiki hotels, which pay heavy licenses and perhaps do violate the laws-Is no liquor sold at the Walalua Hotel on Sundays, for Instance? We onlv ask for Information, and. at the same time, would like to know why two resorts, rivals to Long Branch, had got the tip last Sunday and were clothed in virtue nnd sodawater when the raiders appeared at Waikiki. Let all be irvaiea aiiKe, or don t treat any at all." The Independent "Let all be treated alike." That Is just the text The Republican took in its article wherein reference was made to the raids at Lons Branch last Sunday. The favoritism of the onicials of Hawaii, and particularly of the police, is notorious and is fast bringins down the wrath of the people, which will be felt in no light way, In the near future. The for informers in opium cases and for the officers who raid nes gambling resorts, alter getting """"w "wa meir superiors and arranging a equitable division, are infamous, and they must be stopped. And, by the way, why Is it that oaly the Chinese gamblers are raided? Way not make some pretense of raiding" some of the gambling joints run br white raea. w -- -- T - THE HONOLULU EEFUBLTCiy, PPJDAX JUXE 29, 1900. "Wouldn't it be a good idea for the f police force to take a tumble to Itself and have a sporadic attack of genuine honesty for aboct hoors. just to zee it really conld do. Tbe Republican is glad it was misinformed as to yonr citizenship, ilr. Ripley. Glad e are that you're a good American citizen and always hare been. There are a "whole lot of good fellows in the Territory who are not citizens now who will be just as soon as the courts can get to work, and its a hearty welcome The Republican extends to them on assuming the new dignity. TSTho Are Citizens? To the Editor of The Republican: Sir: Will you allow a reader ot The Republican interested In the matter of citizenship to ask a few questions relative thereto? The opinion of Attorney-General Dole is that a foreigner -who has resided here five years and takes the oath of allegiance to the United States is not a citizen of the Territory of Hawaii until he has resided here one year after taking this oath. At the same time, it seems he can qualify as a Toter; for, according to Sec. 100 of tho Territorial act he is a citizen of the United States, and according to Sec 60 of the same act the only requirements for voters at all relative to the matter of citizenship are: 1. Be a male citizen of the United States. 2. Have resided here one year. Nothing is said about being a citizen of the Territory or about residing here one year after becoming a citizen of the United States. Have we in this a system of special citizens rights, somewhat similar to that under the republic: The privilege of voting without being a citizen of the Territory? Residence for varying periods ot time is, I believe, required in different States and Territories, in order to qualify as a citizen of the State or Territory. If a foreigner residing in the States takes out his first papers, lives the required length of time in the same State or Territory, then takes out his final papers, does he not become a citizen of the United States and a citizen of the State or Territory at the same time, without residing in the State or Territory the required length of time after taking out his final papers? If so, does not this afford a precedent In the matter of citizenship here, for Sec 100 of the Territorial act says that residence in Hawaii prior to June 14, 1900, is equivalent to residence in the Territory of Hawaii, and by Implication says that such residence for five years is equivalent to taking out first papers and all other requirements prior to taking out final papers? AN ALIEN. i For He's An American. To the Editor of The Republican: Sir: I notice in this morning's Issue of The Republican that I am classed among those who are debarred from holding office in the Territory of Hawaii because I am not a citizen of the United States. The office which I held under the Republic of Hawaii Is pau, and I am out of office, so that part of the proposition cuts no figure, but I do protest against being out of my citizenship. I was born in tho State of M:ilnf TT RA. TsotpLJntb TTntiod. came to Honolulu. I have never surrendered my rights as an American citizen since coming here, unless it was by becoming a voter under the Provisional Government and under the Republic of Hawaii.
