THE CHOICE FOR THE NATIVES
By this nine intelligent natives must
tiPL'in tii see that the Roval cause is
doomed and that they have been sys
tenitically tooled about its prospects
Twenty-lour dates in all have been set
fof restoration, yet restotation lias not
tome and is now a by word among all
who knew the trend of Mr. Blount's
views before he left this capital, Every
assurance given by the ex-Queen to her
former subjects about an early return
to Iolani Palace has come to nothing.
Her prophecies have been lutile, her
pledges are discredited, and the disap
pointments she has caused are unre
lieved. That anv native with a mind
of his own can believe any more of her
divinations or fail to take account of
the progress of Hawaii toward annexa
tion or a protectorate, is to assume that
credulity in its most optimistic form is
an ineffaceable trait of the Polynesian
character. As for the Star, it does
not think that the Hawaiians have any
real confidence left in a Royalist renais
sance, and in that belief it feels that it
may counsel with them about the
future with some assurance of a
The times have grown critical for
the Hawaiians themselves just so far as
they have pushed the annexation idea
aside and made room for a protectorate
over the Government as it stands.
Annexation, as we have pointed out a
score oi times, means the enfranchise
ment of the native race. It is synony
mous with the voting privilege; but
under a protect. r..te this Government
could do what it pleased with the local
suffrage and might not feel disposed to
yield very much to people who had
misguidedly opposed its plans and de
layed their achievement. It remains
largely with the Hawaiians themselves
to say whether they are to fare well or
badly. They might, by concerted action,
help bring annexation about during
Cleveland's term. By further opposi
tion they would fall under a protectorate
and that, as we have shown, would be
greatly to their disadvantage. Their
only remaining choice is between
American citizenship and the position
they now occupy. Quite as much as
this has been told them by a paper of
their own tongue, the Kuokoa, and it
is true as gospel according to all the
saints. If they do not believe it, we
are sorry for them. If they now see
the fact as it stands, they ought to take
advantage of it.
The time is ripe for some native
leader to guide his fellows into the only
field of practical statesmanship that is
open to them. To help the country
towards annexation now that is their
true function as friends of their land
and themselves I Will they be wise
enough to act accordingly ?
There is merit in the complaint of
an Annexationist Mechanic that con
victs are employed at various forms of
skilled labor when honest men, capable
of doing the same work, and who are
loyal and taxpaying friends of the Gov
ernment, are out of a job. The issue
thus raised has been a familiar one in
the United States during the past
twenty years and has been generally
settled in favor of free labor. So far
as we can recall the facts very few
State prisons in America are now per
mitted to compete with legitimate
manufacturing houses and the ir work
ingmen. New York no longer makes
shoes, and California has closed down
its prison furniture department, con
fining its striped artisans to the making
of gunny sacks and the picking to
pieces of old rope. Elsewhere sen
tences to hard labor are taken out in
breaking stone It is certainly opposed
to prevailing American sentiment, as it
is to common fairness, to use prisoners
trom the reel to do carpenter work and
paint buildings. Honest men and
good Annexationists should have the
first chance fur public employment as
against all comers particularly comers
with the ball and chain.
'The Star's campaign against Royal
ists survivals in the personnel of the

gratifying results. Dr. Trousseau is

COMMENT ON HAWAII.
Some Readable Extracts From

Mr. Blount, who arrived at San
Francisco yesteiday, continues to de
serve the appellation of Minister Ret
icent, which he carried while at Hono
lulu. The reporters ol the San
Francisco papers could not screw out
of him the first suggestion as to what
kind of a report he will make at Wash
ingtOU. The latest Honolulu advices,
however, indicate that Mr. Blount will
recommend that the provisional form
of government ot the Islands be sus
tained and made permanent by some
sort of protectorate. 'That Government
appears to be working along smoothly,
and very little encouragement from the
United States will be necessary to

Commissioner Blount has returned
from Hawaii, but no one can find out
what his report will be, although he is
claimed to be in favor of a protectorate

annexation if Harrison had not favored
such a move first. 'There is too much

DEATH OF RICHARD CHUTE
An Old Viiitor to These Island Expires
f riends of Richard Chute, and they
were numerous, ate pained to hear of
his recent death 111 Chicago, the news
of which arrived by the last steamer.
Mr, Chute was here last winter, com
ing shortly before the revolution ol
January 1 7th, and made many friends
during his short stay. He was a pro
notinced and persistent advocate tit
annexation and did good work for the
cause in Honolulu and after his return
home. The following tribute to his
memory has been handed in :
Mr Richard Chute, who recently
died at Chicago, will be remembered
by the many warm friends who mad.
his scquaintani e during his stay heie
Mr. Chute an was extensive traveler,
and, owing to ill health was compelled
to leave the northern states during the
winter months. Of late years he had
spent his winters in Florida and wa-
thoroughly informed upon the climatic
renditions existing thtre. Not long
after his arrival here he expressed him
self as being immensely pleased with
our tropical climate and when he left
the shores ot Hawaii, it was his inten
tion to return again the coming winter.
He arrived here shortly before the
revolution and was well informed upon
the political questions under discussion.
Being a firm believer in annexation to
the United Stales, he was sanguine of
the advantages and prosperity which
would follow this event.
The following is the tribute paid to
his memory by the Board of Trade of
the city of Minneapolis:
" The board of trade of the city of
Minneapolis has learned with the most
unfeigned regret of the death of Richard
Chute, on the 2nd inst., one of the
oldest and most esteemed citizens of
Minneapolis. Mr. Chute has long been
identified with the interests of the city
of Minneapolis and the board of trade.
He was on the site of the present city
before a building had been erected on
the west side of the river. He took u
his permanent residence in St. Anthony
in 1 S54. He was then in the full vigor
v f manhood and already largely ac
quainted with the northwest, from his
connection with Messrs. Ewing & Co.,
in the fur trade. His sagacity and
sound j dgment early foresaw the ad
vantages of tins location as the site of
a Lrge city and he always entertained
the most sanguine views ol Its turture.
"Immediately upon his settlement
he engagi d in active business and en
tered with enthusiasm into eveiy
measure calculated to promote the in
U rests of the city. He ai quired a con
siderable interest in the St. Anthony
Water Power Company, and was its
managing agent for several years. In
1 his capacity he was subjected to con
siderable adverse criticism, but the po
sition was certainly a difficult one to
fill, and for stveral years he Worked
strenuously to settle the cotupl cations
with which it was suirounded and in
which he was finally successful.
"Mr. Chute was largely instrumental
in incorporating the original board of
trade in St. Anthony, and served as its
President in r 7 and ihsS. He was
also prominent in its reorganization in
1 80S. and. it is believed, served as Us
president for one or two years, though
on account of the destruction of the
records of the board by fire in 1891
this point seems to be lelt in some
"While Mr. Chute was thus always
active and foremost in every enterprise
pending to advance the interests of hi
adopted city, ne never couia oe pre
vailed upon to accept political or
municipal 1 ffices, though often solicited
'.hereto by his friends and fellow-
citizens. His qualifications, both mor
ally and intellectually, amply fitted him
to adorn any office to which he might
have been called by the choice of the
people, but his tastes strongly inclined
him to the enjoyments of a quiet and
domestic life. Mr. Chute's political
affiliations were with the Republican
party, although in local and municipal
affairs he always exercised the right of
voting for the best men irrespective O!
"In educational, church and benev
olent work he was much interested
and his unostentatious but effective
work in this direction is known to
many of the early settlers. Not only
has this board sustained the 1 ss of a
valued member, but the community at
large has missed a valuable citizen who,
although from failing health during a
few years passed has ceased from active
work, yet has contributed a large share
towards the growth and prosperity of
the city. W e extend to his family our
sincere sympathy in their great bereave

King and Damon, the STAR is enabled
to state that work on the pumping
plant at the Makiki well is being pushed
as fast as possible. The new boiler
has been hauhd to the site and the

sary tinder its part of the contract.
Just as soon as the new pump is com

will be turned on. Both the govern
