THE HAWAIIAN STAR :
MAY 18, 1803. SIX PAGE
NO USE FOR H. C. C.
The following letter from Henry C.
Carter, "an American from New York,
here on a visit," was sent to the editor
of the San Dieo Sun, who rcmailcd it
to the Stak, saying that his paper,
which is sound on the annexationist
question, had no use for literature of
that kind :
Honolulu, April 12, 1893.
Editor San Dilgo Sun : May I
beg the favor of a word to you on the
Hawaiian question ? Iain an Ameri
can from New York, here on a visit ; I
was here for several luonths in 1888 ;
my brother was resident here for scvcial
yeafs as a physician ; and 1 have not a
cent of' interest in the Islands. My
brother, hovecr, has a little piece of
land here, and a few other investments.
So I think I can judge fairly. First of
all: We are sure that the Ilawaiians do
not desire annexation. They have
always been friendly to the United
States, and ought not to be despoiled
of their country by an ambitious and
money seeking faction of foreigners.
For in the second place, Mr. Editor,
that is all there is to the annexation
plan. Not all the white people in all,
21,000 out of 96,000 total population
desire it. The Ilawaiians do not wish
it. True, some have signed annexation
petitions ; but there was much pressure
brought to bear upon them. The 35,
000 natives and the 8000 half-whites
people who, as as a rule, can read and
write oppose any sacrifice of inde
pendence. Then again, Mr. Editor, consider
llTe means taken to bring all this end
about a sudden seizing of government
weapons, well knowing that the peace
able people had no more fire-arms ; the
aid of our naval forces making resist
ance impossible ; the rush over to the
United States in the charteicd steamer
"Claudine," affotding the Ilawaiians no
opportunity to give any presentation of
their cause, and the fervid haste at
Washington, giving us no time to weigh
matters before committing ourselves to
a policy novel in its natuic and very
uncertain in its results : All these arc
characteristic. Mr. Editor, the whole affair was un
just and unfair, an outrage on the Ila
waiians and an insult to us. By their
action, these men sought to make us
parties in a factional quarrel, and to
pick their chestnuts out of the fire.
"Chestnuts" is precisely the word. For
their plot is old. I saw it beginning
in 1S88; they sought then to irritate
the Hawaiians and to incite them to
violence, that our sailors might be called
in and the natives be overawed.
Finally; one conversing with the
rank and file of the annexationists will
find not one particle of honor or patri
otism among them. All is selfishness
and greed of rule or of money.
Pay no attention to these men till
the other side have had a fair hearing.
The annexationists are rich ; they have
access to all the avenues to public
opinion ; Hawaiians are poor and
So, Mr. Editor, I ask your support
for the cause of Hawaiian independ
ence, remembering that now is their
hour of need and that never was
a cause more just than theirs, or more
deserving of our sympathy yes, and
our armed aid. Let us tell their
enemies, that we arc not as they would
make us receivers of stolen goods but
an honest, just and patriotic nation ;
the friend of all, the despoiler of

IN THE DUKE'S HONOR.
Reception of a Chicago Club to the De
scendant of Columbus.
Chicago, May 5. As a descendent
of Columbus the Catholic Duke of
Veragua was honored to-night by men
high in the church, at whose altars the
great discoverer knelt and in whose
name he raised on this continent the
cross which he carried over the seas.
The Columbus Club in its membership
is Catholic to the core. From the
world finder it took its name, and its
members deemed it fitting that its
hospitality should be extended to the
Spanish Duke and his family, so the
Duke was invited to the reception. He
cordially accepted, and to-night at the
new quarters of the club on Monroe
street, the kinsman of Columbus was
greeted in a way worthy of a king.
Archbishop Feehan was there, and
with that quiet dignity which so well
becomes him, he welcomed the Duke
to this city in the name of the Cath
olics of Chicago. Prelates, priests and
laymen also welcomed Columbus' de
scendant to-night for the glory brought
by the discovery of America to the
chuich before whose spiritual sway he
bowed. As Catholics they took pride
in Columbus, but as Americans, also,
they honored and revered him.
The cream of the Catholic social
circles of Chicago and the suburbs also
attended to honor the Duke, and hun
dreds of guests of every creed joined
with them in making the rccept ion one
of the most noteworthy incidents of the
week. For an hour befoie the ducal
party was expected the crowds blocked
Monroe street between Wabash avenue
and Madison street.
Archbishop Feehan was early in ar
riving. The crowd recognized him
and irave him a heaity cheer. With
the Aichbishop was a keen-looking
ecclesiastic, wearing the put pic stock of
the prelate. He was liishop Keane,
the scholarly piesident of the Catholic
University at Washington. Greetings
were also given to the distinguished
foreigners, who came in dozens.
The crowd waited patiently, but it
was nearly 8 oclock when the gallant
and gay Chicago Hussars dashed up
and cut a passage through tiie throng.
Thev were the Duke's ercort. When
