"I havo received no advicca whatever
from Washington, authorizing
tho Port Collector of Customs at Honolulu
to releaso goods of Philippine

said Collector E. R. Stack-able
yesterday in reference to ' the
recent Supreme Court decision In the
Insular cases.
"While news brought from the Coast
would Indicate that tho new status
had gone Into effect on the Coast,
this department has not been notified
in an official manner regarding the
matter, hence there will be no change
as far as the business connected with
the local department of customs service
is concerned."
Mall advices say that the Secretary
of tho Treasury on December 3rd Issued
to Collectors of Customs in the
United StEtes a telegraphic order directing
them, to admit free of duty
goods imported from the Philippine
It Is quite evident that the order
sent to Collector Stackable at the
port of Honolulu has missed connections.
As the Sierra left San Francisco
on the 6th of December, it was
hardly probable that mall advices
could havo reached the Coast from
tho Bast in time to catch the steamer.
Tho telegram sent out from Washington
to Collectors of Customs by
Secretary L. J. Gage reads as follows:
"Discontinue requirement entry and

Hawaiiar.6 Are Encouraged and Fsel
That the Cause of Americanism
is About to. Take a Great For
ward Stride.
There was a rousing meeting of the
members of the Home Rule Repub i-can
party in Foster hall last night,
for the purpose of discussing p.an3
for the campaign and
important matters of business on
hand. A large number of Home Rulers
were present.
The meeting was held behind closed
doors, even to the outer door of the
building- being locked. Members A
the press were not admitted and the
deliberations of the politicians were
absolutely secret
The Hawaiians were in an enthusiastic
frame of mind and referred to
the President's message In no uncertain
terms. That they were encouraged
by the words of the nation'3
chief executive was clearly demonstrated.
Said an energetic Home Ruler, aft?r
the meeting: "There are likely to ba
some radical changes in this Territory
In a very little while. These
changes will take place sooner than
the public expects. The message of
the President has greatly encouraged
the Hawaiians and they feel now that
they are in a position to go ahead
with their work in the political field
with the assurance that success is not
far off."
Asked as to the nature of the provable
early changes in the political
aspect of affairs in Hawaii, the 'speaker
"Tho Hawaiians. were not consulted
when Hawaii was annexed Aq . the
United States. It hurt tq'erir to see
their flag come down and it hurt them
to see. the Stars and Stripes go np tn
its place. But they have since rejU2.d
that it is all for the best and that
what has been done cannot be helped.
When the Islands were annexed, how
ever, the Hawaiians looked forward
to some change from the government
under which they lived since the monarchy
was done away with. The
change has been a long time coming,
and the Hawaiians have been patiently
waiting to enjoy the full benefits
of an American Territory.
"The Hawaiians want a Governor
who knows something about Ameri
can principles. They have been unable
to feel the benefits of

of Americanism and Uo is ba "1-ed
and guided by a gang of unscrupulous
"The Home Rule Republican party
believes that now is the time to settle
the matter of the removal of Governor
Dole. The matter was earnestly
discussed at the meeting and It was
the unanimous opinion of all that as
long as Governor Dole holds office
In this Territory in the lutei"tr.ss
of American government, Ints's
which are now the interests of the Hawaiians,
cannot be advanced.
"The message of Pr&Ident
has given the Hawaiians .confidence

Roosevelt understands the situation
down here better than those who

ands at heart and who, under the
guise of benefiting the Isiiud's. en

population for alleged commercial
"The falsity of the contention that
Asiatic labor is necessary to the welfare
of these Islands Is clear to all
lovers of Americanism.
"The Home Rule partv will tak? Immediate
action in regard to the
of Governor Dole, and m
will ba sent to Washington by
the America Mara on the 20th cf th!s
month, not only asking for hl3 removal
but stating good and sufficient rea
sons whv such an action is necessary
to the welfare of the Islands. Gov
ernor Dole's sins may not be those of
commission, but they are sins cf omis
sion. The memorial will deal with
others besides Governor Dole.
"It was the sense of the meeting
that it has been clearly demonstrated
bv the Governor himself and bv
who are close to him In aathoritev
that the Governor and his associates
have been grossly negligent of their
dutv. We feel that jthe President feels
something of this, too.

want the rights and privileges and o,v

"We feel that we are oa top now,
and that bow Is the time to strike.
The meeting was an t ro
and there were many who had much
to say.
"The Hawaiians are heartily In accord
with the principles laid down n
the President's message. They feel
that the annunciation of these principles
by the President speaks great
hope and encouragement for thy Hawaiians
and for the Territn. .'V iutnr.

the meeting and reference was mado

In the extreme. In view of
the circumstances, wherein darkness,

might all be expected to contributs
to a f.r greater loss, and the happy

entirely to th? qqick, cool judgment

Eis Pleading- for the TJnrestiictf d Immigration, of Chinese
to Hawaii Has Aroused Great Indignation.
Secretary Wilscn Defines the Attitude
of the Admiaistration.
From a Staff Corraspoadect
WASHINGTON. Nov. 30 The officials of the Unltid States Government
have this week encountered an astounding propotlton that
has mede some of them at least look back longingly to the days
when ths Unitsd States had no Insular p. sseisions. Th thing encountered
was a lobbyist who Is here from Hawaii and who has served
notice en all concerned thit hi will stay here duilng ths sess'on
of Congress end wotk against the re-enactment of the Ch.nesc
It appears that a conrldarabla of the allied sentiment that has
come into public view latslv against the exclusion of Chinese,
In the of HawaiL It is learned hirs Ibat cne of the
errtnds of the H-n. Henry R Cooper, somstimts Secretary-Governor
of Hawai when Kate Kelly Is not acting was to work for ths
letting down of the bars s- hst the Chinese might pour iato the
can fie'ds of Hawaii to the txclusion therefrom of all other labor
and to the betteimect of the philanthropic sugar planters of that
Territory. Probtblv vou In Hwii knew whether the H n. Harr
E. Cooper, your Secretary-Governor, came here for that purpose.
The correspondent of The since hearing the report,
has asked several of the officiate of the Government abovt it. bt
no satisfactory assurances are to be had. The Wa hlngton officiate
seem ashamed to discuss such h repoit There i3 patriotism n this
town. Is there patriotism among the men who are unhappily lu
charge of the Territorial government of Hawaii?
Anyway, the correspondent of The Republican today went to Sec
retarv of Agriculture Wils n and asked him vhethsr It was trua
that there was a movement nmon certain Hawa'ian sugar plasters
to get unrertrlcted Chlnsse tm igration. "There Is" sid he. "t
don't went to tll vou for publication yet, who is behind the
there? But there was a m an from Hawaii In here to sse ma
the other day. and he tried to cun vince me that we must let down
the bars for the Chinese rr the sugar planters of Hawaii wl'l surely
perish. Thev sav that thv afford to pty the wages demanded
by anybody but the Chinese. They renreeent that they cannot
get anv other sort of abor. We a re against them. They wl'l hnv
no Chinese Immigration into Hi wall. We cannot let them Into the
United States, and of course. Hi wail being a part of the Uo!tU
States, wj cann"t let them into that Territory and keep them off
the mainland. The President is strongly in favor of the comol'ta
exclusion of the Chinese from al paits cf the United States. Make
ro mistake about that He ii b'tterly against tho men who fivor
letting down the bars. He regards the Chinese question as extremely
So far ro gcd That is what a member of the Cabinet of President
