THE FLAG MUST STAT. feminine politics: - cruise of the star,
The Views of a Veteran Politician and
Editor on the Great Issue i
of the Day.
Ex-State Senator C. L. MacArlhur,
one of the veteran politicians Of New
York, is at the Hawaiian Hotel. Mr.
MacAithur has been editor of a Troy
newspaper for many years, and is ac
customed to study the currents, of pub
Speaking last night of the annexa
tionist movement he said : '' J hnir a
great deal of talk about restoration,
but I must say that so far as the action
of the United States is relied upon to
bring it about, the Hawaiian monar
chists will be disappointed. Such a
thing is not to be thought of in Amer
ica. Mr. Cleveland cannot aff.rd to
pull down the Amer can fl rg. To do
so would make a greater furore than
did his proposal, a few years since, to
restore the Confederate ensigns. To
abmdon this country to its fate could
only mean defeat to the Democrats in
the next campaign
"I am aware that there is a quit-tilde
in our country upon Hawaiian mutters
which some people mistake f r apathy.
It is not this. It is confidence. The
people feel certain that, after some
needed formalities have been observed,
the islands will come into the Union.
Were this not the general view, and par
ticularly if the Americans thought thai
Mr, Cleveland proposed to withdraw
the protectorate, you would see a flame
of protest and excitement which no
administration co.ild withstand. Briefly
summarized the American spirit is
this: 'If any man attempts to pull
down the American flag, punish him
on the spot.'
"The churches are doinc a great
deal to create and foster a favorable
view of annexation. Hawaii is chosen
ground for the Protestant religious
b dies in America who are accustomed
to p int with pride to the success of
the missionaries here and to use the
religious history of the islands as an
evidence of wh it may be done to
Christianize barbarian peoples. Natur
ally when they see that the ex Queen's
friends are fighting the 'missionary
crowd they side with the latter in con
fidence that they are doing the right
thinu fjr morality and civil., tion. No
President or official of any rank, would
care to take issue with the churches,
particularly in a fight where the appeal
of civilizition, I'ood government and
the like re-enforces the religious argu
ment. You may be sure that the
influence of American Christians
will be thrown with tremend ius weight
into the annexationist scale and that it
of itself will far more than overcome
any opposing tendency that may pos
"I believe our people w.juld like to
see the Queen paid off and provided
for. They don't relish the idea of
knocking a woman down and stealing
her pocket bo )k; but at that point
their interest in her and in what she
represents, c mes to an end."
Senator MacArthur will Spend some
time in the islands, a visit to which
has been one of his pleasant anticipa
tions for many years.
DEPENDS ON ANNEXATION.
The Oahu Railroad Company and its
B. F. Dillingham, who, for some time,
has been in New York working in the
interests of the O. R. &, L. Co. writes
that much of his financial success, in
securing a loan of $2,000,000 for his
company, will depend upon anncxa
ticn to the United States.
It will be remembered that a few
months ago Mr. Willey, representing
an American insurance company, was
here investigating the matter. His re
port determined the American com
pany to insure payment of the bonds
and it was forwarded to the London
company that will sell the securities in
England. The London syndicate has
accepted the report and announces
that it will issue the bunds and
place them on the mat-Let the moment
annexation is brought about
If the money is secured, as it proba
bly will be, there will be immediate
payments made here amounting to
$900,000, and arrangements will be. at
once sot afoot to bej'in the extension
of the railway around the island.
H. B. M. S. Hyacinthe.
The Hyacinthe, which has been ex
pected to arrive at Honolulu for some
two weeks, is likely to put in an appear
ance about Apnl 151I1. Upon enquir
ing at the British Legation it is learned
the vessel will remain at this port
awaiting orders which will determine
her future movements. In case no
orders are received she will proceed on
her cruise. It is not thought the situ
ation here is likely to detain her any
length ot time beyor.d the delay attend
ing her usual call.
The Royal Arthur and Temeraire of
the British navy, which are due in th
Pacific from England .early in May
will proceed to the North Pacific sta
tion and may call al Honolulu on th
way up. minister wocienouse denies
that he has sent for either of them.

How Hawaiian Women Expect

The women's branch of the Hawaiian
Patriotic Lcnituc organized at Arion
Hall yesterday afternoon. The main
room was filled with about 200 ptrsons,
There were women of all degrees,
shades and styles, and it is r-afe to say
all classes of Hawaiian women were
presented, from the descendants of
Kameliamehas to the modern Ha
waiian belle, rivaling her nnuie sister in
bbons and complexion.
Addresses were made by John h.
Bush and Mrs. F. W. Macfarlane,
President of the organization, which
purported to set forth the aims and
lans of ihe association, It was stated
that the leading object was to extend a
general welcome on the part of native
Ilawnitaus to the members ot the
United Stales Commission when they

be given sh- rtly after the Commissioners
arrive. It is the Him beiiel or tne pro
moters of this feminine scheme that if
the seductive influences of a hookupu

About 160 names were placed on
the league list, and besides the usual
fhcers elected, were added large xecu-
live and financial committees.
A committee meeting of the mam

last night at Anon Mall. About 75
members were present and several
short spetches in the native tongue
were made after the routine of business

OBJECTS TO THE FLAG.

The Eecuiive Commiliee of the

rable anger day before yesterday when
Star reporter entered room No. 6,
in Campbell s lilo k. George blrate
meyer had just finished decorating ihe
rooms and stood surrounded by well-
draped American flags, with a paint
brush in each hand. There was visible
excitement in his face as he swung one

nounced something or somebody in un
qualified, but artistic terms.
It turned out that one of those an-

The Forty-fifth Star.
The announcement that the I. X. L,

forty-five stars raises the queiry as to
how that extra star cot there. It was
this way. 1 he I. X. L. man wrote
postcript to his letter that had an un
expected effect. "Wnile you are abou
it, wrote the funny in in ol the 1. A,

A Fine Lot of Curios A Fatal Fall
The Missionary packet Morning
Star arrived in the harbor yesterday
morning, three months ahead of time,
ftcr a cruise of nine months among
the islands of the South Seas. During
ic voyage the Star touched at fifteen
islands of the Marshall group, at eleven
of the Gilbert islands and at several of
the Caroline group. On the outward
voyage Ocean island was sighted, but
othmg was icen of the shed erected
here several years ago by the Hawaiian
govi rnnitiit. Ihe btar left Kusaie
homeward bound 1 11 I'i-lruary oth, and
reached Honolulu after a voyage of
forty seven days.
1 he btar brought as passengers
Messrs. Little, Kinney, Fletcher and
Captain Mclander. Miss Lono, the
aughter of one of the Hawaiian mis
sionarics to the South Seas, was also a
assenger. She comes to Honolulu to
attend school. Although the machinery
f the Star broke down several times
ic trip was not delayed, as several
eeks' time was saved by curtailing
Rev. I M. Channon s cruise south.
It is announced the Germans have

I'liu- Star came home with a water
nd wood ballast, and brings a small
cargo of South Sea island curios. Some
of these arc quite interesting, even in
Honolulu, where Polynesian handicraft
bounds. When a reporter called, the
second mate's cabin was filled from
roof to floor with this miscellaneous
collection, some of which is worthy of
Just inside the do r lay a pile of fine
mats, of various patterns and grades,
collected during the cruise among the
Marshall islands. Near by was stored
small lot of valuable red coral from
the same group. Overhead were hung
several unique suits of savage armor
from iapatien, Gilbert islands, which
were firmly woven of cocoanut fibre.
I'hesc armors extends from the neck to
the knees, and, being all of an incli

South Seas In one corner of the cabin
stood a wicked looking bundle of ce
coanut wocd spears from Ruk, while in
several large boxes on the floor could
be seen the p;nk tips of pietty shells,
gathered from various islands during
the cruise of iS.ooo miles; but the
most of the shells came from the Mar
shall and Gilbert groups. On the walls
of the cabin the second mate had
arranged in tasteful designs tortoise
shell fans of his own handiwork.
During the trip from the Marshall
islands to Kusaie, Caroline islands, a
child of one of the native passengers
died at sea. The body was taken to
Kusaie for burial.
While the Star was lying at anchor at
I'iipatien, in the Gilbert islands, the
vessel was visited frequently by the
natives of the district. One day when
several native children, belonging to
Rev. J. M Shannon's school were
aboard, one of them went aloft without
permission. As soon as he was seen he
was crdered by one of the officers to
come down. It is unknown whether
or not the demand frightened the 'lad,

manner, he leaped from the topsail
