The Siar has learned on undeniable
authority that the advice of the Annexa
tion Club with regard to the removal
of Royalist holdovers in Government
employ has been approved in writing
by Minister Lorrin A. Thurston, Rev.
Win, B. Oleson, agent of the Annexa
tion party in the United States and by
ex-Attorney-General Armstrong, now a
resident of the city of Washington.
Minister Thurston has writttn three
letters to the Govern Went in which he
points out perhaps in memory of his
own experience in the Reform Cabinet
with anti-Reform aubordinatea that
the public safely r quires the displace
ment 01 otnciati who are not active
adherents of the Government and loyal
promoters of ils cause. We are in
formed that Messrs. Oieson and Arm
stong in private letters urge the same
policy with great vigor and earnestmss
one of them going so far as to stiggi it
that the Government cannot expect a
cohesive support of the Annexation
parly it it shall continue to turn its
back upon its friends and give aid and
comfort to its enemies. That this is
fact and net an inference, appears 111
the course of recent discussions of the
Executive Committee of the Anm xa
tion Club, and in the popular talk
the streets. Its significance would be
unmistakable if the subject of re
niovals should ever be canvassed at
public meeting of the Annexationis
rank and lile, civilian and military.
it is witn lull aelerence to the ex
perience and the good intent and the
conservative impulse of those members
ot the Government who oppose re
movals that the Star returns to the
issue and asks again that only active
supporters of the revolution and of the
administrative functions as they stand
shail be placed or retained behind the
breastworks and on the pay roll. It is
surely a reasonable request, and we
make it in good Annexationist com
pany. 'That such a move would not be
harmful in its tffects up n public
opinion in the United States, we have
the word of three distinguished friends
of Hawaii and itl Government, residing
on American soil and close to the seat
of Federal authority one in the re
sponsibleposition of Hawaiian Minister.
For long decades the American people
have been accustomed to rotation in
cftice, and they have shown themselves
ready to suppress treason and sedition
with the hand of iron. They must re
gard the tolerance here of the friends
of a Royalist pretender as hold overs in
office as an evidence of administrative
weakness. It could not be otherwise.
Conversely, they would accept the
prompt eviction of the Royalists from
the Provisional camp as an indication
of confidence and strength.
Should the Royalist, by some poli
tical miracle, reach power tomorrow,
they would make a clean sweep of
Annexationists, and they would do so
for the best of political reasons. It
would be their duly as well as their
pleasure to put evety possible safeguard
about their cause that it might not
again be made a common football of
ill fortune. 'They could not afford to
leave a spy at large in their camp nor
to let a dollar ot public money go to
men who would use it or store it up to
be used against the lei ure of ihe regal
authority. So we say that what they
would mete out should be meted to
them now, to the end that the Provis
ional Government may be wholly in
the hands of its friends, that its citadel
may be altogether in the keeping of its
loyal adherents, that behind the sand
bags and cannon there may be no one
to desert his post in an emergency and
that the men who bore the arms on
January 17th may be preferred in of
fice and responsibility to those who re
fused their service there because they
wanted the monarchy preserved.
May we not hope for some at lion
now? The Annexation Club has ofh
f -tally asked for it, and Thurston, Ola
son and Armstrong approve. Is there
any good reason which should delay or
defeat so reasonable a request ? If so.

Council and be debated on its merits

The wily tricksters who are using the
Hawaiian name to secure themselves
another chance at the public treasury
apparently think this picayune showing
is enough to base a claim of political
sovereignty upon ; and yet what is the
intrinsic difference between such a de
mand and one 1 f men owning less than
$200 in stock of a $10,000 corporati
for control of the business and the
plant ? Shalt the weakest of minorities
averawe the strongest of msjoritie
when it comet to deciding the poiic
of such a business enterprise as the
Control ol the Hawaiian Islands has
always been? There is very little of
politics ab tut any Hawaiian Govern
ment, past, present or future, except as
incidental ami supplementary to the
great business concerns of the group.
W hat the Government shall do 01
shall be is always and ever a
matter of supreme business moment,
particularly to Americans. It might
lie measureably different if the
natives were capable of self-government
and were influenced by patriotism and
love of country, but it is obvious that
the most they care for in life is day to
day subsistence and creature comfort,
which is a question of business, also,
with which, in the helpless aboriginal
condition, foreign capital and enterprise
have most to do. Business now rules
in nearly all countries where the mass
of the population cannot govern itself.
it rules India and Egypt in the name
1 the British investor, and properly so.
It controls and will continue to con
trol Hawaii in the name ol the Ameri
can investor so long as he retains his
majority interest over all adverse com
binations. From even the cursory comments the
new Minister makes on me political
aspect of his mission, it is to be reason
ably deduced that the United States
will insist on a speedy end to the "pro
visional" status of the c untry when-
ver it shows its hand. There will be

WHAT clotted nonsense! Go and
read the Constitution of the United
States and find out where the Govern
ment is authorized to interfere with the
domestic concerns of a foreign and
friendly country. A c.reful study of
Mr. efferson's immortd document
will save you from a great deal of
foolishness in re Hawaiian matters.
Tin departure ot Admiral Skerretl
will be a matter of regret to the Ameri

f uncompromising porta, It was the
common hope that Ins stay at the Isl
ands might be prolonged. However,
as he is to remain on the Pacific sta
tion, it is not unlikely that he will re
turn to Honolulu in due season. The
STAR'S wish of parting is that he may
come with his flag flying on the great
Mk. DAVits' idea that a message of
Mr. Cleveland to Congress could cause
the oreseitl Hawaiian Government "to

by process of lime. The Guardian

The British court of inquiry about
Naval Reserve Stott has caused much
public disgust by "exonerating'' a sea
man who apparently did not know
'unchbowl from Diamond Head when
he approached the coast on October
2d. and who ran bis ship on a reel
which common prudence could have
avoided. The Si ar has said in dis
cussing the Miowera's troubles that the
hip would not have been lost if the
pilots had been more expeditious. We
believe so still. But that does not
excuse Mariner Su.lt, whose business
was to stay at a safe distance outside
the port until the pilot had tuined up
As the case stood the delay would not
have been more than twenty minutes
at the furthest.
From what Captain Stott said to re
porters and others alter the catastrophe
occurred, it is reasonably plain that he
id not know where he was on the
night of October 2d, except that he
was somewhere near the beach. His
ship was even then permitted to go
ahead at reduced speed and he ground
ed as a matter of course, and for sheer
lark of seamanship.
As tor the court of inquiry, that
must pass lor a political hurusque.
The 111 xt we shall hear will be an at
tempt to cinch the Provisional Govern
ment in the matter of damages. Out
upon such courts of 'inquiry." They
smell of political tricks a great deal
more than they do ol common sense
