I'lii KPtitlt aiaii attracts f.-pecial atlviition
at thi time. We regret to giw mucli of ;
our space to personal discuiou or ex plana- '
tion. but .onie of the liscns-.ion in referein e
to the subject of this article i- of suftlcieiit :
public interest to warrant a place in our
columns. It Is said that 44 Mr. Gibson has
been stirrinjdr up the natives t discontent
with the whites. This -.tateiiieiit is wholly
untrue, whether referring to ti e past or the '
pre-ent. There cannot be produced the ev- ,
ill nee of h single action or utterance in sup
port of the allegation. The story is told
that Mr. (iil.-oii roused up an antai;oiiiiii ;
of race in the legislative Assenihlj" of lsTs, i
ami that he 44 jwinted to a crowd of excited ',
Hawaiians, and then haaing his fist at the
whitemen in the liegislature, yelled. 4 If
you want disorder, you can have it.' " This
htory has been repeated by a gentlcmau, a
stranger to the occurrences of the period rt- .
ferred to, and it is he that now causes it to .
appear in print. The actors and parties
present on the occasion know that this
whole story is a malicious falsehood. Hi re !
are the facts: There were four white rep
resentatives elected to the Legislative As
sembly of 1ST8, Houorables V. M. Gibson,
I. F. iiickerton, Win. II. Castle ami Win.
O. Smith. A report of the Finance (oin- j
nn'ttee of the Assembly, of which Mr. (Jib
son was Chairman, severely censuring the
Ministers of His Majesty, was adopted, be
ing voted for by all four white members.
Subsequently a vote of want of confidence
in Minister was introduced, supported by
Messrs. Gibson and Iiickerton and opposed
L by Messrs. Castle ami Smith. A long and
stormy debate, protracted till late at night,
ensued. The Hon. Noble, Godfrey Rhodes,
strongly censured the Ministry and Hon.
R. F. Iiickerton made a severe speech
against ministerial action, but Mr. Gibson
made no speech on the occasion of this pro
tracted night session. However, the min
isterial rejoinder was chiefly di rected against
him. The Minister of the Interior, shaking
his finger in a menacing way, indulged in
many harsh personalities against Mr. Gib
son. There was a cry from native members
of "pili kino," this is personal ami alter
listening awhile to this abuse Mr. .Gibson
interrupted his ministerial antagonist by
saying in a moderate and not "yelling"
tone, 44 if your desire is disorder you can
have it," clearly meaning, as all the cir
cumstances would warrant the construction
if you want to turn the deliberation and
decorum of Parliamentary debate into dis
order by personalities, you can have it by
receiving tiersonality for personality." .The
story of 44 shaking his fist at white men"
will appear manifestly the invention of a
malicious and untruthful mind, when it is
borne in mind, that of the four wiiite rep
resentatives, two, or one-lialf, seconded by
a white Noble, stood side by side in oppos
ing a ministry, one of whom was a native.
Will any one think of accusing our capable
and eminently conservative Police Justice
Iiickerton of any purpose of antagonism
of races? Surely not. Ami Mr. Gibson
would not be spoken of in this connection
were he not supposed to bo a candidate for
the suffrages of the jieople, and also sup
posed to be in antagonism with parties in
power. Mr. Gibson, in all his intercourse
with the Hawaiian people having any ref
erence to public questions, has been partic
ularly conciliatory and conservative. He
has never advised or taught anything con
trary to the most cordial fraternization of
races. His antagonists know this, and of
course at this time, they are not seeking,
and do not want the truth, when a lie will
serve their turn better. Mr. Gibson does
not think of making any reply to, or dis
cussing any question with them. It would
be folly and utter waste of words. liut there
are friends, or a candid and unbiassed por
tion of the community, but partially and
imperfectly Informed, to whom it Is a duty
to impart correct Information. For tho
sake of such, we re-call a few incidents
which will clearly show Mr. Gibson's atti
tude in the consideration of mutual race in
The election for Representatives to the
Assembly, in this city, in 1870, was preced
ed by a great deal of angry discussion and
demonstration. Several timid persons be
came alarmed and there was a good deal of
apprehension. Mr. Gibson, who was uot u
candidate, yet having had much to say to
Hawaiians, as the editor of a nativejournal,
resolved to issue un address to the Hawaii
an people- with a view to quiet the political
acrimony that prevailed. He had printed,
at his own expense, an addess in the Ha
waiian language, '2,(0 copies, which were
circulated among the electors of Honolulu.
Of the effect produced by this Address, we
will quote the opinion of this journal at the

on account of having t await v. conclusive action

There! re t lie ndvue to dieiegard what your
Lcgialittuie h:is emu-ted is fuint foolish and mis

was proposed during the rein of King Luualilo
to cede l'e.irl Harbor, a an inducement for the

within the scope of her continental policy. That
Pearl Harbor scheme wis justly defeated and
abandoned, and a new treity for reciprocity was
brought forward and ratified hy your Legislature.
This treaty proposes an exchange of products
wi h a mutual rciuisi-ion ' duties without any

And now 1 will consider wiih you the causes
and the remedies for your decline. The usual
tulk ol the demagogue is that the presence of
, the white foreigner is connected with the decay
. of the red skinned native. But this statemeut is
not true ; aud is disproven in many countries
where the red and the white live prosperously
together. It is uot true in Java and the Moluc
cas I rota whence your forefathers came. There
: the red skins havegincreased from one million to
many millions since the whites went to live
among them, because the native people have be
come as orderly and industr.ous aa the white for
eigners, liut it is upparettly true, in part of
America, where the red skn has been it ferocious
savage in times past and his continued eo to this
dav, not caring lor any industry or law or order,
and only bent upon wur mil destruction, such
a savage people must cauce their own destruction,
like the lions of Alrica or tho tigers of Asia, if
: they will not listen to the vo ce ol law a d order
which governs the whole world, liut you have
listened to wise teachers and legislators, and
therefore you might expect to prosper und in
crease as the red eopie do in Java, the Moluccas,
the Phillij ines ana! in British India; and if you
do not prosper there must be some cause of do
cay in your blood or in yous.'iuatiou.
Perhaps both these inllueiues u fleet you. You
need new blood. Y'oti should mingle with other
races kindred to you, and become a reinvigor
ated people. You have been so long, so many
ages isolated in the ureat ocean, and have so long
inter-bred and associated in your narrow isles un
der the destructive infiueiecs of a polluting
heathenism, that your blood has become corrupt
and weakened, and predisposed to receive and
succumb to every new disetse that comes to de
solate your beautiful islands. The red people of
Java do not suffer from foreign diseases any more,
pay, not so much as the loreigners, because the
red people of Java have as healthy and as vigor
ous a constitution as the foreigners. And their
vigor and increase is owing to their being a mixed
people of kindred races, consisting of the uncient
Jaw i or Javanese stock of the Sundeee, of Malays,
and of Hindoos; t tie latter having founded a
great colony in Java, and constitute the bulk of
the population of tho island, which now num
bers over 15,000.0(10 of rrd skins like you, and
vet all n t e now ailed Javanese. And were these
islands to gradually receive 50,000 Hindoos and
other red races, kindred to the Hawaiian, the
offspring of these new peiple aud of you native
ixjoplc would all be Hawaiians ; and so your
name iiii i race would continue to possess this
archipelago, even should you mprease to
1.000.000 ol s.mls.
TJieielore why should you. O Hawaiians ! oc
cupy and disturb your minds over questions
about a loan or a treaty, or even a succession to
the throne, which you cannot affect or change.
'Li-t jour minds dwell upon your sad condition as
a dec.tj ing remnant of a once numerous people,
i Listen not to the lym talk of those who tell you
that it is the presence of the foreigner which
causes yiur decline. Look to your sad dispro
portion of sex."Tln; last census in 1872 ehowed
that there are nearly seven thousand more males
than females. Seven thousand men in a ltttle
community like tins who cannot get wives ! Look
at Iilo in a population 4.220, there are about
one thousand men who must be without natural
and laxvl'ul partners. And notiee Koolaupoko on
this island, where there are 2-224 man and
804 women ! 11 w in such a state of society can
the men find hclpmetttii to increai-e and multiply

This is a woeful condition of your race, a con

Walter Murray (Jiukon.
Honolulu, January 31, 187C.
Thk Gazette, enumerating some of the
disqualifications of Mr. Gibson, in respect
to public confidence, recalls to mind Mo
reno and Father I.arkin. These two indi
viduals are usually brought forward when
Mr. Gibson is assailed. Our contemporary
says:'4 Did he (Mr. Gibson), not speak in
the last Legislature so highly in favor of
our old friend Moreno. " Let him produce
the words, speaking 44 so highly in favor."
These are the facts. "When Mr. Gibson was
in Washington city during the year 1S(!9,
assisting Dr. J. Mott Smith, the Hawaiian
Charge tMjuires to advocate the Recipro
city Treaty he had frequent encounters with
Signor Moreno, who was advocating before
Congress a cable telegraphic scheme. Mo
reno was then often seen at the houses of
Mr. Sumner and other eminent public men,
and was frequently met at the receptions of
Secretaries and Senators. Mr. Gibson saw
much of Moreno and he had every reason
to believe then that he was a man of means
ami received a favurahlo consideration from
eminent public persons. Years afterwards,
Moreno wrote to Mr. Gibson at home here,
respecting his cable scheme, and the pros
pect of its being entertained in Iiawaii ;
and in lsso, Moreno arrived in Honolulu
from China. Notwithstanding their
former acquaintance and correspondence,
Mr. Gibson did not come to town to meet
Moreno till about five months after his ar
rival here, and during this time, the plausi
ble and intelligent Italian had formed a
multitude of acquaintances, and a very
general opinion was expressed in favor of
his personal abilities. A somewhat general
favor at one time, no doubt, encouraged
Moreno, to contemplate greater results to
arise from his visit to the Kingdom than
he at first anticipated. And during all this
period, and all of Moreuo's stay here, Mr.
Gibson never had any very intimate asso
ciation with him, not as much as many
others of the community. But Mr. Gibson
voted for a subsidy for a China Merchants'
Line of steamers, in which Moreno was
supposed at the time to be interested. This
is Mr. Gibson's oflenee in connection with
Moreno. Now, Mr. Gibson had strongly
advocated a subsidy for the Pacific Mail,
and as suoli suhsidy had few friends among
native members, it will not be assuming
too much in saying that ir. Gibson's in
fluence went a long way in obtaining that
subsidy. He then said in the Assembly
that he was prepared to advocate the grant
of aid to a French-Tahitiau Steamer Line,
then sioken of, should it touch at our own
port, or any other foreign line. And when
the China steampship Ho Chung arrived, it
was simply in accordance with Mr. Gibson's
expressed views and previous action, that
he voted to assist the China Line, although
at one time he did oppose it, anl not
at all in consequence of ay Moreno in
fluence, Moreno regarded Mr. Gibson as
one of hi worst antagonists during the ex
citing period of August, 18S0; and an in
timitate history of those events will prove
that Mr. Gibson was neither "used nor
out-witted" by Moreno.
As for Father Larkin, Mr. Gibson's asso
ciation with him dates from the period
when the Father originated aud circulated
a petition for the pardon or commutation of
sentence of Polua, condemned to death. Mr.
Gibson, with many -others had his sym
pathies aroused in respect to this case. But
what proof is there ii that uf ''bolstering up
an advei.tuiei " ? The Father came here
proposing an excellent scheme of technical
Instruction. This scheme was calculated to
win the favor of all parties, unless it might
possibly promote the opposition of our
brother editor, who is an Instructor, and
who might entertain some jealousy toward
a new system.
Mr. Gibson had nothing to do with Lark
in's affairs ; and this journal merely pub
lished statements believed to be true, for
Iirkin, as it would for the editor of the
Gazette or any one else, having a fight on
his hands ;ui(j Peking an opportunity for j
Mr. Gibson never sought to " holster up i
Larkin. nor to utter a word ' to casv t nd
less troub'c to one of the worthiest bodies
of men vthe Catholic chim-h) -in this coin- ;
munity." Mr. Gibson in his public poi- ,
tion has I i, ami always will l. lirni
friend of this church, and of others like
them, devoted to the cure and edoeatioii of ,
the people, and the best welfare of the j
We will say in conclusion that we do not I
appreciate the term 44 adventurer," as be
ing used by any foreign resilient here of
long or short date, against another of still
more recent date. Are not wo foreigners
here, all adventurers? Then why shall one
apply the term sneering! y toward another"' ;
It is a snobbish pretension thai i utterly
unwarranted, and may he prompted by, al
though not excused by professional jeal
ousy; as when one school-master sneers at :
the arrival ami presence of another. j
Change of Native Character. i
There is frequent complaint of late days, j
that the native character has changed very j
materially within a few years. It is said j
that the Hawaiian, formerly very simple j
minded, and believing, and easily guided '
by foreign intelligence, is now indifferent to j
the advice of former guides, and very self- i
suflieent and self-assertive. This is true to !
a great extent, and the notable change ob- j
served in native character dates from the j
election of King Lunalilo. Before that time
Hawaiians recognized with tradilioaal
reverence, the divine right of their chiefs or
Kings, and at the same time had an un
questioning respect for law. The new era
dawned when a plcbiscitum or appeal to Un
people was proclaimed in the name of the
chief Lunalilo, who came forward as a can
didate for the Throne, and sought the suf
frages of Hawaiian electors. These were
some ofthe words of this appeal :
" Whereas, it is desirable that the wishes
of the Hawaiian People be consulted as to a
successor to the Throne. "
That 44 the judges of the different election
districts throughout the Islands (hereby ap
pealing to their ancient allegiance to the
family of tho Kamehamelnis ), give no
tice that a poll will be opened on Wednes
day the 1st day of January A. I). 187.5, at
which all male subjects of the Kingdom,
may by their vote peaceably and orderly ex
press their free choice for a King of the Ha
waiian Islands. And that the said officers
ofthe several election districts, do, on a
count of the vote, make immediate certi
fied return ofthe same to the Legislative
Assembly summoned to meet at Honolulu
on the 8th day of January, 1S7;. That if
any officer or officers shall refuse to act in
accordance herewith, or if there shall be a
vacancy in said otlices in auy district, the
people may choose others in their places,
who may proceed in conformity to law in
conducting the election. "
The authorship of the plcbiscitum is in
volved in a little obscurity ; hut it is not
necessary to consider that point at this
time ; the object being now to point out
some of the parties and influences that
endoised and carried forward this political
movement. They are set forth in the fol
lowing call for a public meeting:
" We, residents of Honolulu, hereby re
commend the immediate assembling ofthe
the people together for the purpose of con
sultation upon civil matters, ami for the
further object of appointing a committee
for the due management of the the polls in
the district of Honolulu, on the occasion of
the people's vote for a King of the Ha
waiian Islands, called by His Highness
Prince William CJ. Lunalilo, for the first
day of January, A. D., 1873, etc.

and many others.
Now it will be observed that the plebis
cite, or plcbiscitum was of a somewhat
revolutionary character, Inasmuch as the
document without any authority of law ap
pointed inspectors of an illegal election,
and recommended to the people to choose
new inspectors, if the regular officials
would not act according to their wishes.
The Gazette, then a Government organ,
made a mild protest as follows:
Hawaiian Gazette: Extra. Friday, Dec.
44 It is proper to make known that those
who are responsible for the Government
press do not indorse any statements (re
ferring to the plcbiscitum) printed for
private parties at their own expenses.

His late Majesty have not formed or ex- j
pressed any opinion as to the rights or qual- j
iflcations of any native Alii who may as-
pire to the Throne. " !
But the voice of authority and law was
not heeded at that time. There was a strong (
popular feeling and movement, in which a
large number of influential foreigners who j
were dis.ttislied with the discrimination of ;
the late King against them joined with the ;
natives. An election, pursuant to the i
plebiscite was held in this city at the auc- ;
tion store of Mr. E. P, Adams, and there j
was great jubilation by foreigners as well j
as natives over the result the iopular elec- j
tion of Luualilo. And there was much j
said in an exulting w-iy in our public
journals at the time about this splendid ex
ercise of the sovereignty of ihe people,
which was very widely quoted abroad. So
far very well. The Hawaii. 111 people were
patted on the back, and told that they were
the masters of the situation. They began
to realize the power of the ballot in a way
they had not felt before. They began to
feel that they could not only make, but un
make kings, and set up and put down public
men ami ever since the days of the plebis
cite, have shown more independence and
self-sufficiency in the exercise of the
privilege of the franchise.
Of course, there will be no complaint
against this state of tilings by parties whos
interests are promoted thereby. But when
the privilege of voting is likely to be used
against parties in power, then the exercise
of the franchise is denounced as being
placed in utterly untrustworthy hands.
We ha-e seen a striking illustration of the
above statement in the United States. To ;
the colored freed-mcn the ballot was given
when it wa expected that it would always j
be cast in favor of the donors, but after a !
time the colored electors did not vote as ;
was expected, and there was expressed a
great ileal of disgust and regret for having
placed such power in such incompetent
hands. There is a gentleman now in this,
country, who visited a Southern State in j
order to influence the colored vote, and
when it went back on his views and his
party, he gave vent to a good deal of dis
gust against the colored voter in a New
York journal. Now, perhaps he and his
friends have a poor opinion f the Hawaiian
voter fr the same reas, fi, and console
themselves by saying Viis character is

The letter of Dr. Fitch presents a remark
able statement, and one deserving of very
earnest consideration. Of Io02 cases treated
during the quarter, the enormous propor
tion of llo7 were sexual diseases. Till
statement of facts goes to show how
thoroughly the Hawaiian race may be said
to be saturated with a syphilitic taint.
Hut this fact does not warrant any con
clusion with regard to the absolute doe-i-dence
and disupteiiranee of the race. Our
readings of medical history inform us that,
at one time, eminent nations of Europe
were tainted in every rvnk of life with
syphilis, nnd that its dreadful associate
(leprosy) followed in its footsteps. Diseases,
ns epideinie or endemic, have 11 rise and
progress a climax and subsidence. And
we are happy to believe that the virulence
ofthe syphilitic virus is weakened in these
islands, and is in a state of subsidence,
though still widely spread. The disease is,
we understand, now more easily and effect
ively treated than in former years; and If
we would single out a paramount subject
for the consideration of a Hawaiian Govern
ment, it would bi the providing of Hanl
tary and medical means for the treatment
of the poor uu I uninformed people of the)
country, for this general diseaso und other
ailments. The dispensary in Honolulu Is
showing forth remarkable results. The peo
ple are now coming forward eagerly to be
healed. Dispensaries, or branch hospitals)
under similar management should he on all
the large islands, as was provided for by
the last legislature. It was urged at the
time, by the senior member for Lahaina,
who introduced the resolution providing
$40,000 for br.tnch hospitals or dispensaries,
that the native sick, lepers especially, would
readily go to the branch hospitals, where
they would still be in the vicinity of their
j friends, but would resist being dragged
away and doomed to an isolated jiest settle
ment. The statements of this rejxtrt to the
Board of Health, prove the correctness of
the member's views that of V leprosy
i cases, 4!) 44 called at the Dispensary volun
j tarily for treatment." What a change in
; the action of Hawaiians afflicted with dis
i ease compared with their former conduct.
' A while ago the Board of Health employed)
j iiolice agencies at considerable expense to
I hunt up the afflicted ones, who hid theni
! selves rather than betaken to a hospital
j that was to be their final home. Now they
hasten voluntarily to the Dispensary to ask
! a kindly doctor's opinion if ' he thought it
j best for them to be treated with the design
1 of warding oil disease."
I The people are heeding the advice of the
i hook of "Sanitary Instructions for Ha-
waiiaiM, which said in the article 011 lep-
1 rosy : . Jo to a good physician at once, and
lethimexamineyo.il thoroughly. By act
ing thus promptly and frankly, you will
make him your friend. He will not report
you as a leper to be sent to the lepor
hospital at Kalawao ; but he will strive to
heal you, and to prevent these beginning
of disease from leading to confirmed
! Why the treaty was made. We hald
' in last Saturday's issue that the Reciprocity
' Treaty was conceded by the American Con
1 gross in order to maintain American in
; fiuencc in this kingdom; and by a mail
I which arrived subsequent lo our publica
' tion, the Sau Francisco Mnxhant c&ixm Ut
hand, in which reasons are given 44 why
; the Hawaiian Treaty was made." 44 To
j give the Islands such benefits by our gene
j rosity that they would become more and
' more under American, ami less under
j European influences." And it furthermore
! says: 4' No 4 corrupt pool ' could have de
j feated the intentions of the United State
j in this initiation of a new policy, for every
: object contemplated by the Cabini'tlu
; making the treaty, by the Senate in con
firming it, and by the House in passing tin
: necessary revenue law to carry out its pro
j visions, has been accomplished."
Til k coin moil talk of anti-reciprocity is
that the U. S. cannot afford to give away
for a generous sentiment, 82,MH),OOi) per an

America is about $.l,ooo,ooq jer annum,

the "generosity"? The Iteeii.roeiiV
Treaty will not he disturbed by the Amer

Ok American influences in this Kingdom,

six journals, three in the English language

this Kingdom five of them the three in
