SPRECKLES ON HAWAII.
, Claus Spreckles, the San Francisco
sugar king, knows most of the situation
in Hawaii, and talks sensibly concern
ing that country. He is opposed to the
permanent maintainance of an Ameri
can warship in Honolulu harbor. In
an interview at San Francieco Wednes
day he said :
i , "When I first began to consider the,
situation in the Hawaiian islands, I
looked over the ground carefully." My
Idea then was that a republic should be
created, the people to choose their presi
dent and vice-president, and to vote on
the new constitution. But when I be
gan to talk about a republic they wanted
to kill me. I would not join them in
their scheme of annexation to the United
States, which would not do either gov
ernment any good. I told them that a
. provisional government could not stand
, and that if they did not want a republic,
-1 would go back to the queen. Tbe last
- election that was held under the govern
ment by the queen brought out 11,000
. votes. You will notice at the last elec
,, tion, under the present so-called repub-
lican government, there were only 2,000
-votes, and of theee perhaps 1,000 would
siiot have been legally entitied nnder the
constitution with which the queen ruled
It is a sham republic and those who are
concerned are working the matter only
as a speculation pure and simple, hop
ing to sell their real estate at a high
price. They expect to be able to do
, "Look sensibly at what we would get
and give by annexation. We could not
annex the country without taking in tbe
people who are in its territory. There
are from 12,000 to 15,000 Chinese, from
,15,000 to 18,000 Japanese and 40,000 or
more half-castes. Then there are 1,000
lepers to be taken care of, and supported
by os. This is not a very pleasing pros
pect. There is no danger that a foreign
nation will ever take the islands. Nor is
there any danger that they will change
their commercial relations with us.
'There has been a great deal of talk
which has no foundation, and we know
that to be a fact. For instance, there is
nothing to the talk concerning the lay
ing of a telegraph cable from British
Columbia. Nor is there anything in the
. proposition for a steamship line between
Vancouver and Honolulu. The Ha
waiian islands have to sell their prod
nets here. This is the only place where
they can sell them."
CAN GET DOWN TO BUSINESS.
The senatorial fight in Oregon is prac
tically settled, and Senator Do! ph will
represent the state of Oregon for six
more years. It is well that the matter
is settled without a tedious deadlock
that would have interfered with and
perhaps prevented much needed legisla
tion. The caucus settled the matter, for
Charley Fulton and torn Tongue, having
gone before the caucus, like good repub
licans and gentlemen bow to the decision
of that caucus. Had their followers seen
fit to'refuse to go into caucus, it is doubt
: f al if Dolph could have been elected, or
that any election could have been had
The democrats would never have gone to
their old time enemy, Dolph, and it is
probable that not all of them or the pop
ulists would have gone to any republican
In this case, at least, the caucus has
been beneficial to the state and to the
, republican, party, by preventing a long
.and bitter'struggle and perhaps a bad
split.': v ;
x- Next Tuesday the formality of electing
Dolph will be gone through with, and
the legislature can then buckle down to
Its work and by repealing the acts by
' which a lot of woree than useless com
missions were created, save the expense
of holding the session, and in a measure
make its existence excusable. The rail
road commission should be the first to go.
The bull-butter exterminator should go
next, then the fish and game deflecter
and unless their powers are extended
the horticultural board should follow
and then the rag-tag and bob-tail little
fellows should be guillotined in a job lot
The fish and game protector and the
horticultural board would be of great
benefit if their hands were strengthened
so that finding an evil they could remedy
it; but being powerless, they are useless
They have tried to do something and
there is something for them to do if the
legislature will give them the power to
do it, but the railroad commission have
no long felt want to fill. Besides it" is
not right for the state to expose them to
the 'chance of being killed or crippled in
Stwhile iD?pecting tbe railroadB
The Washington legislature has not
yet agreed upon a man to send to the
United States senate. On this side of
the river a republican in favor of gold,
or at least against free coinage of silver,
has been selected. On the other side it
seems quite certain that a man will be
selected, who on that measure will be
able to pair with ours. It is of great in
terest to ns whom that senator shall be,
for while he will come from Washington,
he will at tbe same time legislate for
Oregon as well as Washington, and tbe
whole United States. We must confess
that the two leading candidates do not
appeal Btrongly to the party at large,
whatever they may do to the party
locally. In our humble opinion, it
would be well to study geography, and
give the Columbia river section repre
sentation. Hon. John D. Geoghegan of
Clarke county would fill the office, and
he is certainly too available a candidate
to be overlooked.
The legislature is shouting for econ
omy, yet if Speaker Moores was correct
when be said the other day that it cost
$300 an hour to run that body, it is diffi
cult to see where the economy of ad
journing over from Thursday until Mod
day comes in. It is quite probable
though that the session will last forty
days anyhow. The honrs that cost the
state the least money will be those when
the law-makers are not in sessioD.
We notice an advertisement in an ex
change the head-line of which read,
'Hard Times Made Easy." Evidently
the merchant has been taking lessons
from the democratic party, for it made
hard times without an effort.
