THE HAWAIIAN STAR, SATURDAY, MAY 0, 1893.-SIX PAGES.
HE GIVES THEM TO A CHICAGO
A Symposium at the Union League
Club-An Exhibition of
"What Shall He the Future Political
Relations Between the United States
and the Sandwich Islands," was the
suhitct selected by the committee of
political action, of the Union League
Club for discussion at last night's ad
journed quarterly meeting. And in
order that the question might he more
thoroughly understood in the discus
sion, there were one or two gentlemen
present, who were able to give to the
Union Leaguers something of a per
sonal nature in regard to the situation
in Hawaii. One of these was the lion.
Lorrin A. Thuiston, charman of the
commission appointed by the I'rovis
ional Government to the Sandwich
Islands to tender the annexation of the
Sandwich Islands to the United States.
Another gentleman, whose c mtribution
to the evening's discussion was also
very interesting, was Charles 1) Irwin,
who, with the aid of a stereoptican,
presented a series of views of Hawaii.
This feature was a novel departure for
the club and was appreciated.
the stereoptican exhibition came
first. It lasted an hour, and, as Mr,
Irwin explained, it was "An imaginary
trip to Hawaii. 1 he views were re
produced from excellent photographs
and began with a view of the deck of
a Pacific steamer. The prettiest bits
of Hawaiian scenery were shown, to
cether with the royal buildings, the
public edifices, and many of the resi
dences, so noted for their beauty and
unique surroundings. Portraits of Ka
lakaua, Liliuokalani, Kaiulani and
other natives were shown and described
very wittily by Mr. Irwin. When "Old
Glory" was s iown floating in the air
on the flagstaff from which Mr. Mount
took it down, the applause which arose
showed plainly what the members of
the union League Club think of the
annexation question. Mr. Irwin con
eluded his lecture with some splendid
views of the Mauna Loa volcano, and a
series sf views of the crater of the won
At the conclusion of Mr. Irwin's
lecture he was enthusiastically applaud
ed, and then President Peck introduced
Mr. Thurston, who said, m part:
"I am glad to be a guest of the
Union League Club to-night. The
cause that I represent is one that
growing, and I am especially glad to
be able to present my views i f annexa
tion to the brains of Chicago. After
hearing our side you can take what
I have said to your homes and con
sider it as an American question, as it
is not a partisan question in any man
ner. It is not Democratic. It is not
Republican. It is for the benefit of
Hawaii that annexation should take
place. Some of the arguments that
have been advanced have been to the
effect that annexation is a sugar
scheme. The planters have not been
the ones who have urged it on. 1 hey
have opposed annexation.
Mr. Thurston then described the
many evolutions that have recently dis
turbed Hawaii. He compared the
sentiment in the islands on the occa
sion of these outbreaks to the wave of
feeling which swept over the United
States when Sumter was fired on. "Hut
this rebellions were put down," said
the speaker, "because right was on the
other side. It was in all cases a matter
of Anglo-Saxon grit against the objects
of lower class blood.
The labor question was handled with
out gloves by Mr. Thuston, and his
arguments convinced- his hearers that
there should be annexation. "There
can be," said he, "no responsible gov
eminent in the islands until the late
royalty has been completely wiped out."
Mr. Thurston, in referring to the
leprosy argument against annexation
spoke of the lepers that exist in differ
ent parts of the world and proved that
the lepers in Hawaii are belter looked
after than anywhere else, there
said he, as mixed a population in Chi
cago as there is in Hawaii, but th
people do not intend to changes
"We want," said he, "not necessarily
to come in as a btate. We want a respon
sible government. We have no pol
uicians mere, ana we want to ne sure
when we go to bed at night that w
can get up in morning and know that
there is no revolution on hand. With
the United States flag floating there in
the daytime, hauled down at night by
man wearing the United States uniform,
and hauled up again in the morning
we can be sure that we have a some
thing back of us which will control the
heterogeneous population and save us
Mr. Thurston said that of the 20,000
white population not 1 per cent would
oppose annexation, if a vote were
taken. He declared tint with a pros
pect ol the destruction of Hawaii
royalty, the hearts of the people hav
bounded with joy, and will not go back
to the rule of the Queen without mak
ing a protest that will be most decisiv
"We must, said he, "have some
responsible government back of
and if America does not give us th
protection we ask we will be c nipelled
to go to some other country for it. If
Hawaii is left in her old condition
England has just as much right to in
crease her interests there as America
and England is not in the habit of
taking a back seat where lur interests
can be benefited by taking a step fu
in concluding, iir. inurston sai
that the annexation of Hawaii does not
necessarily mean the introduction of
general annexation business for Amer
ica. He said that with annexation
Hawaii would get an impetus in busi
ness that would equal that given some
