THURSDAY, SEPT. 21,
LEANING ON A BROKEN REED.
The Bulletin does m.t care to dis
cuss the legal or constitutional aspects
of an "Ameiican plebiscite" but falls
bark on the theory that, as some of
the early predictions of the Royal
party came to pass, the present dream
of an illegal American interference
here, in behalf of the preposterous
"Queen," will also he realized.
It is true, as the Bulletin says, thai
the Annexationists did not look for a
Commissioner, and that the Royal itti
did. It might be added that they did
not expect the flag to be lowered,
though they soon came to know that
Mr. Blount s motive in that act was to
put the Government over which the
Stars and Stni.es had floated on a
negotiable basis with the Government
to which they belonged. We give all
credit to the Royalists, however, for
their lucky guess work in these two
instances ; but that it was all guess
work and nothing more is proved b
the fact that (he Commission did not
consist, as they said it would, of Gen
eral Schofield and Admiral Brown ,
that they knew nothing in advance of
Mr. Blount's appointment ; and that
their "inspired" statements that the
latter had come to restore the throne
turned out to be the veriest humbug
As everybody is aware the mass ot
Royalist predictions which was made
about the intent of the United States
after the flag had been removed were
all contradictad by events.
In spite of one or two hits, the
divinations ol the Bulletin and its
kiends have so unif.. rmly (ailed as to
leave the ex-Queen's prophets without
honor in their own country or an)
other. Where is the Bulletin's Aus
tralian fleet that was gc ing to help re
store the broken crown to a waiting
head? What of the Xaniwa and the
coercion by Japan? What has become
of the prediction that Minister Thurs
ton and Consul Gc net al Wilder would
not be received or rec. gnized? Where
is the " protest " that England and
Irance had promised to make? What
became if the prophecy that the Pro
visional Government would be over
thrown by Clans Spreckels and his
due biil? What of the June and Sep
tember "restorations," and the twenty-
three other events of like character
which were to have taken place before
this? And going back in the catalogue
what happened to the boastful divina
tion the c ommonest of all that Roy
alists would rise and put the discarded
sovereign back the moment the Bos
ton's marines and tars had been with
drawn to their ship and had left the Pro
visional Government at the mercy of
It must not be forgotten that the
two Royalist guetses that turned out to
be correct were of a sort which did not
cover any breakage of American or
international law. Those were very
different propositions than one to set
aside the American Constitution and
the rights of Congress for the sake of
violating international comity. When
it comes to such a question as that, all
the Royalist divinations in the world
amount to so much wasted wind.
Messieurs, the Royalists, yi UF fi.rte
is not prophecy, even though the tribes
of Moreno and Macfarlane par nobile
fratrummt) congregate at Washing
ton and give you the "lips" gathered
from all the unconsidered trifles of
curbstone and bar-room gossip.
HOME RULE AND THE LORDS.
The action of the House of Lords in
defeating the Home Rule bill should,
in a country where precedent counts for
so much as in England, have serious
consequences to the Lords themselves.
For many years it has been an unwritten
law as faithfully observed as any precept
of the British Constitution, that the
noble figure-heads in Parliament should
not interfere with momentous legisla
tion arising in the Commons. The
last time they tried it was six decades
ago when the upper house refused to
pass the Reform bill, and did so frith
the approval of the King. It is a
chapter ol history that Grey and
Brougham by threats to create new
Lords of the liberal way of thinking
and to force the unwilling hand of the
monarch, finally won the day fui the
new measure, the reactionary peeis
taking the advice of Wellington and
leaving their seats in such numbers
that the bill c uld be passed. There
has never been an hour since then
until the present one when the peers
dared stand in the way of progressive
law-making t( a decisive national
character, In doing so now they tempt
Mr, Gladstone to recur to the strong
measures Of Grey and Brougham and
IWamp the House of Lords with peers
who, by virtue of their common
blood, will have common sense
and deCMI patriotism. Queen
Victoria WOUld not dare any more than
King William d'd to withhold her sign
manual from the new patents ol nobil
ityj and so we may reasonably conclude
that if Gladstone makes the demand
for new peers the Lords will have no
alternative but to receive them or
vacate their seats for the time being 10
the fort) or more patriotic nobles who
agree that the time has come to sup
press mediieval tyranny in Ireland. No
doubt Mr. Gladttone will do his duty
according to his courage of conviction
and in line with the old Bismarckian
maxim that when an omelet has to be
made some eggs must be broken. As
the Irish say, "more power to him!"
It would be a spectacle to fill the
eye and heart if the dull and gouty
and foggy brained old courtiers of the
middle ages type and the sickly dudes
of the modern era could be put on the
back seats of Parliament and the power
vested in them be handed over to the
aristocracy of brains and virtue. Per
haps the curtain will rise on such a
transfi rmation scene in less than a
year, amid the cheers ( f the world's
On, so it is on account of the old
lie that Mr. Stevens overthrew the
Queen tha the United States Govern
ment will hold a plebiscite in a foreign
land. Indeed! Of course Mr. Cleve
land who is expected to act in such a
matter with jut the authority of Con
gress, which governs all electoral con
cerns has forgotten that power of at
torncy, signed by Liliuokalani, in which
she declared that she had yielded her
authority to the Provisional Govern
ment! How very stupid of him.
The suggestion of the Star that a
ball be given at the ex-Palace to the
departing officers of the Boston and the
other naval gentlemen in port was acted
upon last night by the Annexation
Club with the favor and concurrence
of the Government. Next Monday
evening the function will take place
and, if everything shall go according to
the start made, the ball will be, in
scenic magnificence! attendance and
accessories, one ol the most notable ever
given in Honolulu.
The body - matcher! who have
rescued the Holomua from its tomb
have tagged the cadaver with the
egend "Pri gress" whereat the craw
fish at the bottom of the sea and the
worms at the bottom of the grave act
as if they expected company. All the
progress the Royalist paper is making
is on a down-grade where gravity makes
the pace rapid.
When the losers by a revolution
have the right to vote on the tenure of
i he winners, the moon will be made of
green cheese and politics will move
over into the millennium.
