WEDNESDAY, NOV KM HER 15, IS98.
It appears to us that there is
ranch method In the madness of the
Royahsl faction over a return of
the ex-Queen to power at the hands
"i the American Government, in
ipite ul the fact thai the United
States have recognized the Provis
ional regime and assured it of their
friendship; in the face of all the
tenets of international dealing: in
the teeth of the historic American
policy towards the interests in these
Islands of citizens of the United'
Stales; in full knowledge of the
troth that President Cleveland has
given the Royalists no sign of ap;
proval, we still hear the parrot-note
of exultation over a coining revival of
the monarchy at the behest of Cncle
Sam. Now it is fair to assume that
not all the men who are repeating
this dull prophecy are fools. .Some
of them, at least, are capable of
putting the right interpretation
upon the American diplomatic
loHcy, Most of them, indeed, know
that the ex-yueen's chances
of becoming the sovereign of Ha
waii are not better than they are
of being a seraph in Heaven. Yet,
after all, there comes the ceaseless
and unvarying cry of restoration,
restoration, forever restoration,
with Yankee tars leading the way
to the palace doors and saluting
the old royal ensign when it rises
on the tower.
It is a timely question : What
does all this spectacular business
mean? Why this sham reliance
upon an Impossible event ? Why
the noise and shouting of the
prophets even after the course of
the American Government has
proved a constant disappointment
to their dupes? To the Star it
looks like a concerted effort to
divert the minds of the Annexation
party and of the men on guard
from a method of restoration that
would be practicable enough if
the Government forces could
be caught napping. We mean
restoration at the hands of the Roy
alists themselves. Naturally, if
that is their game they would first
pretend to have placed complete
reliance upon the Americans, and
thus lull the authorities to a sense
of false security. Common strategy
would suggest that device and ap
parently has suggested it. This
accounts, not only for the ceaseless
gabble which we have described,
but for the ostentatious plea of the
Royalist prints that the "Queen's'
supporters have "rested their case"
Upon the wisdom and justice of the
United States, and that, therefore,
no cause remains for keeping up a
large military force.
There is but one moral to be de
rived from this postulate and it is
that vigilance and dry powder are
the two great essentials now in the
camp of the revolutionary forces,
livery body knows that if the Royal
ists could capture the seat of Gov
ernment and hold it for an hour
they would have restored the
throne. That is a great temptation
to them, one that becomes greater
as each day passes. The danger
may lie said to increase in ratio
with their protests that they mean
no violence. Hence the conclusion
that now, if ever, the army and the
citizens should be watchful, suspi
cious and above all be ready to act
decisively. That status assured
and the Royalist party cannot rise
except to meet a destruction more
complete and terrible than any they
have deemed possible in a com
munity the past revolutions of
which have been attended by so

Tllh IBOtl scathing e.xpcse of the
grOMei leat tiles Ul the late mon
archy which Mr. Blount obtained
tor the historical chapter of his re
port was Colonel Yolney V. Ash
ford's remarkable narrative which
WC glv tl'c Hawaiian public in to
night'l Stak. The subject matter ,
DKS never been published before on
these Islands, though it appeared
In the Honolulu correspondence of
the Chrmittt last April, some three
months after the monarchy had
been overthrown. The present in
terest in the facts thus marshalled
is due to the assertion of a Royalist
paper that Mr. Blount's report,
which Mr. Willis is supposed to
nave read, contained HO evidence
to justify the specific arraignment
of the Royal family and its hangers
on and of its methods of governing
which lately saw print in this jour
nal ; but on the contrary that it
had exonerated the lost cause from
the blame thus bestowed. The
Ashford revelations, made as they
were at Mr. Blount's request, serve
to show with great clearness the
kind of material which Mr. Cleve
land's Commissioner was willing to
receive for the uses of his Govern
ment. Naturally, there is small
comfort for the Royalists in that.
Thk Holomua has satisfied its
inner man or inner dog that the
Royalist hold-overs should be kept
in office. Speaking of the Hawai
ian diplomatic corps, the Citizens'
Reserve, Annexation Club, the
American League and of men of
the class of W. R. Castle, S. H.
Bishop, C. L. Carter, Dr. McGrew,
John Bmmeluth, C. P. Ripley and
W. W. Hall, the Monarchist organ
says: "A Ministry which has the
confidence of the revolutionary
party cannot be dictated to by small
factions of illiterate, disgruntled
soreheads." No donbt the inter
ference of the Holomua in behalf of
its friends in office will prove in
structive to the Ministry as to the
political views and character of
these incumbents. Some revelation
of the sort has been needed, ap
parently, to show the real strength
and personnel of the retention
movement. Obviously it now ap
pears to be pretty well confined to
the conspirators against the Gov
ernment and the former banditti of
ThH Royalist rumors which have
been flying about remind one of
the gossip caused last April by the
alleged remark of Mr. Blount to
one of the Macfarlanes namely,
that his program was only "half
finished." We were to have resto
ration then at once if not sooner.
Since that time the predicted resto
ration days have numbered twenty
nine in all, and yet the House of
Dominis is farther in the cold than
ever, and the American Minister
calmly abides by his instructions to
so advance the interest and pros
perity of the United States and the
Provisional Governments as to make
himself acceptable to President
Dole. Plainly, all this makes
a rather arctic background upon
which to produce any warm illusions
of a Monarchist revival.
An additional list of down-trodden
Hawaiians, whose native right
to run the Government has been
despotically abridged, was sent to
the Star office this morning. It
includes such indigenous names as
John Bowler, Ned Thomas, Tom
Rawlins, George Hawkens, Billy
Cunningham, Charles Creighton,
Charles Peterson, Carson Kenyon
and James Robertson. All these
gentlemen are prominent in the
movement to restore the "Queen"
to the eud that the holy cause of
"Hawaii for the Hawaiians" may
not be trampled in the dust. Can
it be that they mean "Hawaii for
the Englishmen" and have tripped
up on the phraseology? The fates
While we know of no eandi
I dates for the official posts held by
the Monarchist faction, it is fair to
I presume that there are plenty of
ood men who might be had if
i wanted. If any Minister doubts it
let him canvass the business, manu
facturing and commercial places
where there are bright young fel
lows, trained to business and loyal
to the core, and see if any of them
would take up with a fair offer. It
is no sign of lack of proper material
that men do not force themselves
upon the notice of the Cabinet and
make opportunity by importunity.
l'liat sort of modesty should be
as , recolninendation
TlfSM il twice as much reason
to tarn QUI Royalist officials here
than there is to remove Republican
holdovers In the United States.
In the latter country the removals
bcinj; made are for politics only.
In Hawaii they are demanded on
groumis of t,oth poijtjcs anc public
safety. Abroad no question of
common loyalty is raised, but here
it is imperious, and adds to the
strong part y argument for a change,
the plea of protection to the Gov
1'kivatk obligations ought not
to retain any man in Government
employ at the expense of public
lutv. A billet in the civil service
cannot be regarded as proper pay
ment of a personal debt of friend
ship. " Public office," as Mr.
Cleveland says, "is a public trust,"
and that means, if it means any
thing, that the responsible posts of
the common Government are not
official perquisites and should not
be so used. Turn the rascals out!
IT is not thought probable that
Mr. Cleveland's Hawaiian views
will find expression until they ap
pear in the annual message to
Congress. This message will be
sent to that body on Monday, De
cember 5th. The news should be
received here on the Alameda, De
cember 21st, unless it should drift
