THE QUEEN'S HOSPITAL.
BIENNIAL MEETING OF THE
Meeting of the Board of Trustees and
Election of Officers for the New
The biennial meeting of the mem
bers of the Queen's Hospital corpora
tion took place this morning in the
Chamb.r of Commerce room, James J.
Dowsett in the chair. After the usual
preliminary business Secretary F. A.
Schaefer read his report as follows:
Biennial Report of the Ssckl
tarv of the queen's hospital.
Honolulu, July i, 1893.
To the Members of the Queen' s Hos
Gentlemen : I have the honor to
submit to you my report as secretary of
your Society for the biennial period
closing to day.
The Purveyor's biennial report and
statistical tables to which I beg to call
your attention, show an enlarged sphere
of usefulness and of popularity with the
native population, of tht Queen's Hot
pital, that it has enj yed at any previ
ous period, in so far as the number of
native inmates of the Hospital greatlv
exceeds that of preceding biennial
The following figures will prove of
interest : During the two years now
under review 1086 persons have been
received as indoor patients, as against
931 during the preceding period. Of
these 500 were Hawaiians against 380
the previous term, 27 Chinese, 173
Japanese and 3860! other nationalities
The number of dispensary patients
was at the same time 493
The death rate was 11.64 per cent,
the number of deaths being 134 in a
total of 1 151 indoor patients ; of these
deaths 22 occurred within twenty-four
hours and 13 within forty eight hours
after the admission of the sick into the
The biennial expenditures of the
hospital (the same being the Purveyor's
returns) amounted to $51,539 65 for
the two years, a monthly average of
$2147 49, while the receipts from pay
ing patients anounted to $18,361, an
average of $765 per month.
The receipts of the Queen's Hos
pital from the seamen and passenger
tax amounted to $1 2,638 for the two
years just closed.
I may here mention that Mr. Andre
Alexander Cornist, a Frenchman and
for many years a resident of these
islands, very recently deceased, do
nated by will $5000 for the establish
ment of a bed at the hospital, at the
disposal of the French Consul in this
port. This sum will very shortly be
placed in the hands of your Treasurer
for investment. Another case of prac
tical charity by which the countrymen
of the deceased donor will be directly
The biennial period above reviewed
shows a commendable improvement in
the hospital regime by the adoption of
distinct rules and regulations to govern
the hospital medical service under
which a physician and a surgeon were
elected. This new departure pioves
to be a step in the right direction, and
the present incumbents give every sat
isfaction. But the employment of
trained female nurses to look after the
sick by day and night is the most im
portant change made in the internal
arrangement of the hospital service,
and this addition to the staff has proved
a timely step in advance, and the good
work accomplished by these nurses
speaks for itself. With the coming of
the nurses many improvements were
introduced, too numerous to particu
ilarize here, but all with the view of in
creasing the efficiency of the hospital,
as well as the Corn fort and well being
of its inmates.
All these changes and improvements
effected in the course of these two
years account in a measure for the in
creased expenditures, still they were
needed ar.d prove to be a success. At
the same time the average receipts
from pay patients have increased some
I take great pleasure in announcing
to you a most liberal and generous
donation from Hon. Chas. R. Bishop,
i. e., $10,000, for the constructionjof a
two ttory wing to be built of brick and
now in course of erection at right
angles with the old main Hospital
building. The lower story is to con
tain two large wards, and the upper
story eight good sized rooms with
modern improvements such as are
adopted by the better class of hospitals
of the piesent day. These upper
rooms are presented for female pay
patients and they will fill a much
needed want. The Board of Trustees
have adopted a vote oi thanks to Mr.
Chas. R. Bishop for his gent rous
donation which has been conveyed to
him by the Secretary.
There is nothing of special interest
to be added, but I trust that my report
upon the increased number of inmates
in the Hospital and also upon the
manifold improvements effected, will
impress you with the fact that the
Queen's Hospital efficiently fills its
sphere of usefulness in this community
and so far as circumstances will permit
keeps apace with other institutions of
the kind in other advanced countries.

THE SUPREME COURT
Two Opinions Handed Down Yesterday
Deciding opinions in two cases which
were argued at the late term of the
Supreme Court weie filed yesterday as
Kawai K. George vs. Hanakaiilam
Holt 011 a montion to restrict an ouler
for a new trial. In this case the Su
preme Court had already granted an
order for a new trial without restrictions
and the case had already been placed
on the calendar of the lower court.
riainun tiled a motion that the new
trial be restricted to one issue. The
court holds in the opinion, which was
written by Justice Bickerton, that it
had the power to restrict the new trial
to certain issues, but that the exercise
of that power depended upon the cir
cumstances of the case. No restric
tions having been made in the original
order, the motion of plaintiff is denied.
The second opinion, also written by
Judge Bickerton, is in the case of
James Morse et al vs. J. R Robertson
et al. The history of the case is as
follows : Plaintiffs sued defendants in
the District Court to recover $300 due
for work done by them on the Waimea
bridge Oahu, at the request of the de
fendants, who had a contract to build
the same for the Hawaiian G .vern
ment, and alleging that the def ndants
were thereby made employes of the
Government and that the Government
was indebted to them, serv d a notice
of garnishee on the Minister of the
Interior The District Court gave
judgment for the pi intiffs fur $225,
but found that defendants were not
government beneficiaries under the act
of 1890 and therefore the Government
was not liable, and ordered the gar
nishee disc harged. From this order an
appeal was taken The Supreme Court
decides thai the ruling of the lower
court was correct.

THE EX-MINISTER TALKS ON
A Strong and Cogent Argument
Favor of the Annexation of
A public reception to Hon, John L
Stevens occurred .11 AugUata, Me , mi
June 29th. It was organized by sev
eral hundred leading citizens, who
called upon Mr. Stevens to address
them up in Hawaiian affairs The ex
Minister sp .ke as follows
Mi. President, Ladies and iientle-
men Circumstances outside
control, and no wish ot mine.
proper for me t 1 have something to
say about Hawaiian affairs. Returnine
to my old home after nearly four years'
absence in a distant country, whose
cond lion and events deeply interest
you, 1 feel assured that my 1 Id ac
quaintancts and friends, whom J have
known many years, will believe that I
will speak only the plain 11 nth, and that
no pcrs mal vanity, but a duty to my
country and to the people whom 1 have
just left, induce me to try to throw
some additional light on the Hawaiian
piestion. I trust you will receive mj
assurances that I cannot and will not
speak fioin the standpoint of party.
I he kind ol public service which I
have just left, and in which I have
spent thirteen years ol in) life, does
not admit ol paitisan prejudices and
partisan aims When the diplomatii
servant leaves his own country fol
service abroad, he goes under the rlag
of the nation and not with the badge
ol a party As he sails thousands of
miles away, distance and patriotiam
very soon unite to cause him to think
only of the great American family
whose interests the imnistei is bound to
watc h and defend against foreign rival
ries and intrigues.
I am, then, claiming no apet ial
merit when 1 say that as an American
representative abroad I have maintained
it as a cardinal principle ol my ivice
to recognize no home or domestic pol
itics in my official anion. I. o iking
through the telescope of distance, I
have been able to see only a common
flag floating proudly over the united
Touching Hawaiian affairs at this
time I deem it especially lilting to
stand in this attitude ol an American
only. I fully recognize, and am glad
to recognize, that in the seventy years
of American relations to the Hawaiian
Islands, the great partus of this coun
try have occupied common ground and
shown an American front to our foreign
rivals and an equal determination to
protect the American and native Ha
waiian interests in those Islands We
have said, in effect, if not in words, to
other nations, you may, if you will,
take possession of many islands in the
Pacific, subdue and improve them at
your will, but in these is'ands standing
at our gates and fronting our coast .
American rights and inteiests are be
fore all claimants, the natives shall be
protected and civilized, and American
interests defended. This broad Amer
ican claim to priority and superiority
has been equally maintained under the
Whigs by Daniel Webster and John M.
Clayton as Secretaries of State , under
the Democrats by President Pierce and
Win. L Marcy, and by President
Cleveland and Secretary Thomas F.
Bayard, and under the Republic. n ad
ministrations by William H. Seward,
Hamilton Fish and James G. Blaine
Assuming the responsibilities of the
Minister of the United States at Hon
olulu, in the light of these facts my
duty was plain. The records of the
Legation for more than half a century
indicated what my country had the
right to expect ol me, and that if I per
mitted American interests to suffe i by
my neglect or want of courage, 1 would
be held responsible. In no way in
terfering with the internal political
affairs of the Islands, cultivating the
best possible relations with the then
existing authorities, 1 carefully set my
self to a thoiough investigation of the
moral, political and commercial state
of affairs. This required many months,
for it was proper for me to obtain
thorough information in a quiet un
obtrusive way. The result oi m
observation was duly and consecutively
Communicated only to the Washington
department of state. Everything bear
ing upon, or liable to affect the interests
of his own county, taking plat e in the
country to which he is acc redited, the
min ster is bound to communicate to
to his government, even some things
which may be unsavory or seem puerile.
The records of the Legation and my
investigation, during more than the
first two years of my residence on the
Islands, clearly indicated that a great
change had been going on in the past
fifteen years. To this change had
largely contributed, among other
causes, the extinction of the old Kame
hameha race of kings, the election of
the Kalukaua family to the throne in
1874, and the prosperity and great
pr fits of sugar raising under the reci
procity treaty with the United States.
The large increase of G iVemmtnt
revenues, the low and irresponsible
character of the two last sovereigns,
resulted in astounding palace abuses,
and the appointment to ffi ial placei
of foreign adventurers and unworthy
natives, to a degree greatly advene to
public inte rests and to public and pri
vate morals In the n iture of things it
was impossible that the Hawaii in mon
arc hy could continue. Ii was allowed
to exist by tolerance, years after its
foundation wa gone, Li it formerly
rested on a kind of a feudal basis of
chiefs that no longer existed, time and
death having removed them forever,

tionary hand a suicide of blindness,
incompetence and corruption The

I his earnestly pleading document
from the fallen monarch and the terror
stricken lottery gang came to me more
than twenty hours iftei the men uf the
Boston had landed. This plainly
enough implies that the fallen Queen
and her confidants then knew, as the y
cmlcl not hav : failed to know, that we
had not taken part in ber overthrow,
which had alreadj been accomplished
An hour later the fallen ministers came
to the Legation and urged on me the
inquiry, if I could not use the United
States force to sustain the Oueen. My
answer was what you can readily sup
pose K must have been that the
United States ipldiers were on shore
for a specific purpose, to protect Amer
ican life and property, and could not
take sides in aid of the fallen monan h
nor with those who ere then masters
of the situation and were creating a
new (government. But these facts
have been already given you by the
puDlic press, and 1 need not dwell upon
The raising of the United States rtag
over the Government buildings took
place two weeks later, and on that
transaction there is some missappre
hensi n which it is proper for me to
correct. You may be assured it was
not hastily nor thoughtlessly done. It
was done with all the serious sens.- c I
responsibility that the United States
Minister and Captain Wiltse could
command And here 1 may DSV .1 lit
ting tribute 10 Captain Wiltse and
drop a teai over his honored grave.
He is no more on earth to spsak for
himself, and I can justly defend him
agcinstany implications on his intel
1 gence or h s honor. Forty years in
the naval service, a brave officer in the
war when sh.it and shell did their work
of death among tnose who sto d in de
fense of the Nation's life, he loved the
flag of his country with the devotion
which the Christians of the early centu
ries had for the cross. In his bieast
beat as I .yal a heart as ever thr obb.d
with human life. At home he bel. nged
to one of the two great political parties,
and myself belonged to the otfur
But abroad we knew no party but our
country, - no duty but that ol Ameri
can representatives. Captain Wiltse
and the American Minister were in
complete accord in raising the
flag, Febiuary 1st. He knew ihe
situation thoroughly. The Provisional
Government made the request that it
be done, and thtse were its u-asoiis;
It had been created only two weeks
before. There were no trained troops
on the islands available for its use.
Many of the men in offic ial places on
the different islands, selected under
Ihe monarchy from palace favorites,
had not been removed and their future
Conduct was uncertain. Men from the
business Circles and occupations, from
the stores, banks, offices, and work
shop, had been on guard day and
night for two weeks, and business is
suffering from their absence. There
