This is a fact patent to evecy resWeat of Honolulu. HoMlttlaas eaa congratulate themselves that they are to bare another mui of theatrical by the Neill company. New plays with new scenery will be much appreciate by the Honolulu public. For a paper that is so orosperous as it claims to be Urn Advertiser saws most unusual concern about TIm Republican, which It claims Is slowly dying. Too bad that a establishment should cause a prosperoas (?) one bo much concern. The Republican devotes a great deal of space this morning to the derision of the United States Supreme Coart la what is known as the De Lima aad the Grossman cases to the status of Hawaii and Porto Rico between the time of annexation and the erection of a. Territorial Government Just now there is umteaal interest in Honolulu in know lag just what the United States Supreme Court did hold regarding the so-called "transition period" and it la to gratify this interest that the decision or the court as furnished by the Solicitor General of the United States, is given in full The ponderous slow-going ox calling Itself the blabvortisor now seeks to make its few readers think that .'t has a correspondent in Washington and publishes a fake letter signed with the initials "D. C .L." According to the very latest issue of the Congressional Directory the only correspondents whose names begin with the letter "L" are Landon. Hal D.. Lamer, R. M., Leupp, Francis Edward S.. (The Republican's correspondent), Lockwood, Chas. B., Low. A. Maurice, and Luhnow. C A. As none of these men have the initials D. C. L.. and as the list of correspondents fails to show any one in Washington with these initials perhaps the Advertiser can inform us who its correspondent is and where he has his office in Honolulu- Tho Republican presents this morning a very Interesting interview with Senator Perkins of California uoon the subject of a cable to Hawaii. It will bo news to many people here that a "promlnont attorney of Hawaii opposed a government cable in Washington." This prominent attorney was A. S. Hartwell who was paid ten thousand dollars to go to Washington to labor for such an Organic Act as the Dole clique wanted and who spent most of his time in working for th appointment of Doleas Governor, all at public expense. It now appears thaUMr. Hartwell did not lose sight of the main chance and that he also lOund time, to earn a retainer from, the Now York Cable Company. The' people of Hawaii have" ttfsthank Mr. Hartwell and those "who sent him to Washington at public expense, for Honolulu not being connected with the mainland by cable at the present time. One of the clauses already adopted by the convention which Is framing a new Constitution for Alabama will raeet with general approval. It provides for changing the time of State elections from August to November aad for holding sessions of the Legislature once every four years, unless tb&t body is called by the Governor In extra session. The need for a .jange In the time of holding State 'jNUoas is obvious. Every Presidential year Alabama is compelled to g to th expense of two elections when one would serve just as well. The separation of State from national ejections was made when the Democrats sained control of Alabama after the reconstruction ora. and it was doao ia order to prevent any Fed eral interference with the ballot box staffing by which the State was car ried.

Tbe actios of certain seabers oftbe bar. of Attorney General Dol and of Jadge Frear of Use Supreme Coeri in the various habeas corpas proceedings now before the courts are simply disgraceful They show the to be absolutely Ignorant of the law governing habeas corpus proceedings and tbey are doing" more than aaght else that could be done to bring the Supreme Court and the legal profession of Hawaii into contempt and ridicule for their crass ignorance. If the thirty-seven, members of the Bar Association who wanted Judge Humphreys removed are to be judged by Attorney General Dole and the attorneys for Frank Pahia then it Is well that a large number of attorneys did not attend the meeting of the association. Gauged by the standard thus presented the association should make the quallScations for membership to consist of absolute ignorance of all law. Even the layman, who has been a general reader of current topics, has long since learned that habeas corpus proceedings are not appealable. As shown by The Republican yesterday morning in citing a decision of the Court of Appeals of the State of Texas, if writs of habeas corpus were subject to appeal such action would defeat the purpose of the writ and make of the writ but a solemn mockery. We would especially commend this decision to the Attorney General aad particularly would we commend to him what Church, on Habeas Corpus, says of the respondent appealing a writ of habeas corpus. Says this very good authority: "Sound policy forbids the right of appeal be-' ing granted to the respondent and the law has not conferred it upon him." But then Attorney General Dole needs no law to confer the right of appeal upon the respondent, as represented by him. as long as he believes he has a compliant Chief Justice to crook the pregnant hinges of the knee at every beck and nod of the representative of the Dole administration. But if this attempt at appeal by the Attorney General of the Territory shows ignorance of the law and absolute violation of all rights ot citizens, so does the granting of an appeal by Chief Justice Frear In the case of Frank Pahia show an utter disregard of the law. A guardian appointed by the court is just as much an officer of the court as Is a receiver or a bailiff or any other appointee. of the court Pahia purchased a piece of land from a minor under the guardianship of the court The court not only refused to confirm the sale but directed Pahia to redeed the land to the minor. This was as clearly within the power of the court as was the appointing of the guardian. The Supreme Court could have nothing to do with the appointing of the guardian, that was a matter resting entirely in the hands of the Circuit Court Pahia disobeyed the express orders of the Circuit Court and there was no method under which the court could compel obedience to Its orders except by commitment for contempt The Chief Justice issued a writ of habeas corpus making it returnable before Circuit Judge Gear. Judge Gear very properly dismissed the writ and now the Chief Justice permits the filing of an appeal upon the dismissal of tfie writ and the release of the prisoner upon hi? depositing a cash ball of fifty dollars. Was ever such an opera bouffe performance witnessed In any civilized country before? It is disgraceful. It stamps the Chief Justice as being as ignorant of law as the Attorney General, whose lack of knowledge of the commonest practice Is notorious, and it further stamps him as a partisan judge who is willing to disgrace his ermine if by so doing he can make It appear to the ignorant and vicious that the Circuit Judge had committed an error. Until the war with Spain this country was apparently content with its army and the manner in which it was managed during times of peace. The imposing military demonstrations made annually by other Powers did not seem to excite even a momentary feeling of envy or desire for emulation. But the w&r with Spain has aroused a spirit of militarism that is In marked contrast with the former sentiments. One of the latest evidences of this is to be found la a proposition approved by Secretary Root for the holding of exteaslve tary maneuvers annually. The ment has reached a point where the Secretary of. War hs practically decided to select a site for the operations. Fort Riley, Kasss, k m4 as ike jrefesble locality.

The people of Hawaii could wett aford to subscribe the money for the building of a cable for the local bene fits that would ensue. On every stemMer business naen depart, for tlte mainland on business trips at great expense and loss of time all of which business could be accomplished from home If there was & cable. The amount paid out for steamer fare and expenses on these trips, to say nothing of the loss of time, would more than pay the annual interest oa the coat of a cable. But what Hawaii wants and what the people of the mainland want Is a cable laid and owned by the government The people of Hawaii can do much to secure favorable action by Congress in behalf ot a government cable if they will bat act together. The suggestion that a committee of three to five men go to Washington to urge the passage of a government cable bill by Congress Is one that should be acted upon by the business men of this Territory. The cable cannot come too soon. If any thing were needed to further demonstrate the Infamy of many of the laws of Hawaii It has been ed In the suit to dismiss the guardian of James Love. The law providing for the appointment of guardians of spendthrifts is in line witn the laws providing for declaring people insane and for conviction with a majority jury without the formality of an indictment It well illustrates the hodge podge legal practice in Hawaii under which the Supreme Cour could play fast and loose with every law on the statute books, making decisions one way one day and reversing itself the next day, being always guided by what its members and interested parties were pleased to call public policy. With the merits of the Love case The Republican has nothing to say, but it believes it i3 high time that such an infamous law as the one which ties a man's property up, as Love's has been tied up, should be repealed. j Ifflll i! STATEHOOD. Persons Not Sufficient. From .New York Mall and Express. There cannot be presented sufficient r?nSSK tbe camPaign begun by Delegate Wilcox for Hawaiian Statehood to lend it the slightest tinge of probable success. He adduces no evidence to show that the condition of Hawaii cocially or industrially, would be improved by making it a State, while it Is undeniable that the expenses of its government would be larger than the cost of Its administration as a Territory. The decision of the Supreme Court simplifies its government as a Territory. It is true that the Legislature of Hawaii has disappointed the better element of its people. But that may be regarded as an Initial lesson in the art of self-government. It is doubtful whether the Hawaiian Legislature could surpass, for example,-the recent record of the Pennsylvania Legislature. No Statehood for Hawaii. From the Philadelphia Press. Delegate Wilcox, of Hawaii, who is enthusiastically advocating RfntPhnv for the territory of Hawaii, Is wasting ms ume. riawaii is not nt to become a State, and it will be a long time if ever, before it will be so fitted. There is no evidence whatever to show that Hawaii would be better oft as a State than as a Territory, while Its expenses would be greatly increased. The talk of uniting Hawaii with California meets with no favor either In Hawaii or In California, and is calmer? leal. Congress would give no consideration to such a proposition. Under the decision of the United States Supreme Court, Hawaii needs no statehood, and, like other of our new possessions, can be well governed under a territorial form of government such as it now has. An to complaints about the alleged ignorance and corruption of its Legts? iature, they count for nothing in view of what some of our State Legislatures do, particularly that of No Territorial Legislature will probably ever exhibit such rottenness as has characterized the Pennsylvania Legislature, or that of Montana, and fortunately no Territorial Legislature wou'd have the power to rob the people ot the Territery In the way the Peaaiylvaaia Legislature has lobbed the people of this State. , Hawaii 5kli Statehood.

Indeed, it is not easy to conceive of aay circumstances ta, which the American people would be wfUIng to create a state there zed this will apply to the other Insular possessions. The people of Hawaii may as wen make up their minds to be satisfied with a territorial government, for that form win be continued indefinitely. What Have We Sown. From the Hllo Tribune. The Advertiser has decisive information that Dole will not be removed. This Is not a matter of any considerable Interest. Dole has apparently removed himself, for If he does not re- tnra to Tilt offirfal rhsir snon ihf stat ute of limitations will run against him. j Executive will take any action la the premises unless it Is absolutely necessary. The great white father at Washington Is traditionally a Ion? suffering IndivIdoaL He also believes in letting people reap what they have sown. What the people of" Hawaii sowed that they should leap Cooper, we don't exactly know; it must have been a combination of tar weed, Hilo grass, and Japanese beetle. Probably some othet people wonder what the seed was from which the Territory Is reaping Humphreys, and they think that In this case surely the husbandman will get after the tarea. Not so however, and the sooner the people of this Territory get over this idea of justification by faith and petition and commence to work out their own salvation and political destiny, as they were intended to when annexed, the better it will be for them, and the less they will add to the gaiety of their sister states and territories.
