FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1898.
rill VOICE OF AN AMERU'AN.
I'll tin- agreeable phrases of the
interview in yesterday's Stak we
add to-day the text of the reply of
tin- United States' Minister to the
memorial of the American League.
While Mr. Willis' remarks were
cautious, as befitted a diplomat,
they contained two statements
which must give encouragement to
those to whom the future of Ha
waii as a civilized State is a cher
ished and Christian object. We
group these declarations together
so that they may stand out with
tlir prominence which is their due.
"1 am an ardent American. I
would like to see the stars and
stripes waving, under proper con
ditions, not only over the Pacific
Islands, but ox er any other terri
tory which would be beneficial to
the I'nited States.'
And this :
Knowing the policy of the
United States, I could not have ac
cepted the position of an executive
ofBcbr had it been in conflict with
the principles I hold."
That is to say, if the the policy
nl the I'nited States towards Ha
waii was such as to be disapproved
1 if by an "ardent American," Mr.
Willis would not be here to carry it
out. Fancy, therefore, an ardent
American pulling down the flag of
a friendly democratic irovernment
organized chieflv by men of Ainer
can blood and sustained by the great
majority of American interests on
the ground, and hauling up the
standard ot Polynesian royalty
amid the applause of Yankee haters,
both native and European. Just
Surely, the time cannot be far
off when the American flag shall
wave over these Pacific Islands, and
do so under "proper conditions.'
What those are the advocates of an
American protectorate may easily
surmise. Surely an "ardent Amer
ican'' could be satisfied with noth
ing less than American rule.
Thk ffolomua squares the circle
of ignorance in the following para
There is nothing before Congress in regard
In Hawaii ami the undoing of Mr. J. I..
Stevens' unlawful actions here is simply an
Hut a slight acquaintance with
American constitutional law and
practice would inform the ffolomua
that the President of the United
States cannot make war on any
Government, particularly one the
independence ol which his country
has recognized, without the assent
ol Congress. Such procedure would
violate Art. I, Sec. VII, It, of
the National Charter and furnish
grounds for the President's im
peachment. Bar from being an
"administrative matter," the ex
pulsion from power of the Hawaiian
Government could not be other
wise, under American law, than
the gravest kind of a legislative
matter of which the executive
power would be but an instrument.
Ani so Short Weight Colburn is
the only man vide the Jlolomua
who doesn't want to surrender his
"portfolio" to the "Queen." If
she desires it badly it will seem a
pity to her that the thing isn't a
1500 pound ton of hay instead.
She could procure it then, no
doubt, at the usual tonnage rates.
Tin-: procession of sad-faced
Royalists, reading last night's
Stak, took two hours to pass a
given point. V. S. The "given
point" was Cunha's saloon.
Akk there any other thieves
about who want to try libel con
elusions with the Stak '
NO WHIlfe FLAGr 1
"It RMy In.-," s.ivs the Adverlthr
with tlii' lugubrious tremor- of age,
"thiil. liHsitijj his opinion on Mr.
niouni's report, he. (the President)
1 1, ulls I IK' i MiclU'll - ul Adopt II1B
i 1 1 measure Unit will Uul to an
Dexntion 01 protection', and suggest
lng the propriety ot restoring the
monarchy temporarily, " tkit
Wty he may have chosen to refer
tlie whole matter to the Senate for
their consideration, together with
Mr. Blount's report. J'lus course
has been expected by the press ami pub
lic generally, and will undoubtedly he'
adopted by him."
If it is a fair nuestion What of i
late has come over the spirit of the
Advertiser's dreams ? A week ago
our ancient neighbor was shuffling
about trying to sow the seeds of I
Compromise in loyal soil. These
failing of lodgment, it then began j
to throw out casual handfuls of dis
couragement such as its extra of
recent date announcing that "Presi
dent Cleveland Proposes to Restore
the Monarchy." And now it says
of the Australian report that the
President will recommend Congress
to put Mrs. Dominis on the throne
she has repeatedly disgraced:
"This course xvill un
doubtedly be adopted by him."
"Have you seen the Advertiser t"
said a Royalist this morning. "It's
getting ready to flop."
While the STAR is not so in the
habit of crediting Monarchist
theories as to believe that the busi
ness interests of the morning paper
would permit a complete betrayal of
its cause it must warn the Advertiser
that in times like these the appear
ance of evil is a thing to be avoided
quite as much as the evil itself. The
mind of the Annexation party is
sensitive and it will not tolerate
any weak-kneed leadership, either
in politics or journalism. That
refonustatesman or editor is doomed
who now raises the white flag even
As to the deduction of the morn
ing print that Mr. Blount has advised
and Mr Cleveland concluded to
restore the ex-fjueen with the con
sent of Congress, let us say that
there is nothing to bear it out but
Royalist gossip, which no careful
paper ought to receive at par. Mr.
Cleveland, whatever may be thought
of his annexation views, has given
no sign of a purpose to go into the
Monarchist line of politics. In
deed, in the case of Brazil, he is
reported (at Peixotto's request),
to have warned the Monarchist con
spirators off. So far as Hawaii is
concerned, statesmen who share
Cleveland's councils have told ovy
diplomatic corps that the restoration
of Mrs. Dominis at the hands of
the great republic is "unthinkable. "
So clear is that fact that even the
New York Herald, violent Mon
archist organ as it is, has lately
been forced to admit that Mr.
Blount had not advised the Presi
dent to put the "Queen" in power
again, and that President Cleveland
would not do such a thing if he had.
Asute trom all tins, it is remem
bered locally that Mr. Blount ex
pressed his amazement to Chief
Justice Judd that any reasonable
man could expect the Washington
Government to join hands with the '
discarded Hawaiian royalty. The'
, , , . , . , ,
knowledge is also abroad that Mr. j
Blount became so solicitous for
the future of white Govern-
meiit here that he advised the
Ministry to amend the proposed 1
army bill, so that all Hawaiians
would not be enrolled for militia
service. "It will not do," he said,
"to accustom the natives to the
use of arms." Accordingly, the
terms of the bill were changed.
( )nce more : Restoration and
the credentials of Minister WHlis
are not convertible terms : Said
President Cleveland to President
Dole of his diplomatic agent here :
He will oonstantty endeavor to advanoi
tin' interests ami prosperity of both GOV
EKNMKNTS and so render himself aooapt
aide to Vour Exeelleney.
What does that mean ? It is
plain reading, and the wayfaring
man, though a fool or a paleozoic
journalist, should not err therein.
These are the facts about Presi
dent Cleveland and ex-Minister
Blount, in re their island policy, so
far as they have been given to the
world. They are authentic. On
the other hand is nothing but the
shallow gossip of the space-writers,
the inventions of Rumor and of
Moreno, Rumor's man Friday; the
United Press and Renter sensations;
the tittle-tattle of newspaper corres -
pondents, who are required to fill
their stint of space with readable
atOfin, trusting to kick that they
'may 1m- trite; the mere persiflage of
I the political gutter. It is astonish
ing that the Adverta, r sin mid have
turned a deaf ear to the ev idence :
and rested Its case upon such "bald
utijointed chat" upon these mis-,
ihapen and misbegotten canards

speech, have no pride of ancestry

Tm. notice may as well be served
on the old cabal of Royalists now
as at any time that neither the
Stak nor its editor proposes to be
coerced by threats nor Intimidated
by libel suits. Both have a duty
to perform in this group somewhat
akin in politics to that which, in
agriculture, is to enlist the skill of
Professor Koebele. We are here to
help keep down the Monarchist
pests which have assailed the re
venues ami reputation of these Isl
ands lor so many years mid are
waiting for another chance. More
over, we intend to keep at the
work until the scale bugs and grubs
are thoroughly cleaned out. If
necessary, these remarks will be
translated into the Tahitian dialect
for the instruction of C. B. Wilson

of collections for the Water Depart
ment of Hawaii.
