An Old, Respected, Gitizen
It was not an unexpected event
which happened, yesterday after
noon, when the death of Mr.
Frank S. Pratt, a well known citi
zen was announced, yet, for ail
the weeks of preparation which
the loving family and friends had
had in which to steel their feel
ings against the inevitable victory
of the fell destroyer, there were
no dry eyes around the bedside of
the departed when the result was
evident. Death came slowly and
with attendant pain but the end
was reached with fortitude, the
final summons being answered at a
few minutes past 4 o'clock and in
presence of tho family.
The deceased, Franklin Seaver
Pratt was born in Boston, Mass.
November 3, 1S29, and was there
fore 64 years and 2 months of age
at his death. Ho came hither in
1S50, and was married to the
daughter of a high chief, Eliza
beth Kekaaniau Laanui, in 186.
Mr. Pratt has occupied many
high positions of trust having
been, but a short time before his
death, Hawaiian Consul General
.at- San Francisco.
The immediate cause of Mr.
Pratt's death was drops). The
funeral will take place on next
Sunday afternoon from St. An
drew's Cathedral at 3 o'clock;
relatives, friends and acquain
tances aro invited to bo present
ut the services.
The Hawaiian Mania in
The meeting of Congress, with
tho subsidence of tho calamity
howl, has been accompanied b a
slight exacerbation of symptoms,
in some cases, of tho Hawaiian
rabies. A number of the victims
aro just now laboring under great
excitement, their terror taking
tho special form, of a dread that
somo one is carrying on war in
Huvaii contrary to the forms
made and provided.
Dear old Senator Hoar is ono
of the latest victims of this sad
disorder, and he indulged late
ly in what Senator Mills des
cribed as "shelling the woods"
in tho hope of hitting some lurk
iug enemy of tho Constitution.
In general the Senators do not
seem to have the disease quite so
acutely as some of tho editors,
but there is no telling' what may
happen under the strain of party
The resolution asking the Pre
sident for information, which
was adopted without dissent in
the Senate, is harmless enough,
but in view of the fact that tho
President has promised all this
information at an early date, it
might as well have been deferred."
In the House also Mr. Hitt has
tried his baud at a resolution in
which he recites:
That it is the sense . of this
House that intervention by tho
government of the United States,
its representative or armed forces
in tho affairs of a friendly recog
nized government, to disturb or
overthrow it and substitute a
monarchy thereof, is contrary to
tho policy and traditions of the
Bepublic and the spirit of the
This is a declaiation to which,
with a single amendment, wo
should hojrtily agree. Inter
vention by the United States to
disturb or overthrow a friendly
recognized government and to
substitute any other government
thereof, whether a monarchy, an
oligarchy or what not, is contra
ry to our policy and traditions,
and ought to be condemned.
This is precisely the position
taken by tho President.
By the simple omissiou of the
reference to a monarchy, Mr.
Hitt's resolution will cover tho
whole subject broadly. The gov
ernment which tho United States
Minister substituted xfor tho
friendly recognized government
of Hawaii is nat accurately des
cribed by this term; it is that
much more obnoxious thing, an
irresponsible oligarchy. But it
was tho interference itself, with
out reference to the exact form of
tho snbstitnio, that violated our
policy and tradition, so that the
clause is sapcrflons. With this
amendment the resolution will
correctly state the American pol-
I icy, as tho President has already
declared it. Philadelphia Times.
The Policy of Inikmy.
Iztttfst returns from Hawaii pgi
the lata Republican administra
tion in a bad light. If the., New
York Sun will now transfer its
scare-head "The Policv of lit
iamy'to a fair and full account
of what President Harrison did
in Hawaii, it will thus be able to
i make goods its boast, "If you see
it in the Sun it's so." Special
Commissioner BlountTs report
shows that the present govern
ment of Hawaii is government
upheld by a bayonets.
The question of the advisabil
ity of a monarchical government
is not up for consideration so far
as Hawaii is concerned. The
United States government, how
even has been put in a shameful
attitude by the act of Harrison's
administration. Mr. Blount's,
report demonstrates plainly that
the power of tho United States
was used to force the Queen from
her throne. Onr government
stands in the attitude of the
strong bully over a weak nation.
Our armed forces were used
to coerce the lato monarch in
Hawaii and were used to further
the objects of a ring there. Thus
far, therefore, the "policy of in
famy" has been the policy of the
Bepublican administration under
Of, Little Interest.
I have not been able to find a
man outside of the civil service
who is able to get up even a
moderate amonnt of interest,
much less indignation, over tho
Hawaiian controversy. The
people regard the affair as a
small amount of wool for a very
large cry. That Harrison's
administration muddled with
precipitate jingoism tho whole
matter and put the country in a
false attitude, is the apparent
conclusion of Mr. Cleveland'3
Cabinet. That Mr. Gresham's
declaration, that whatever wrong
was committed by the United
States onght to be rectified by
the United States, is in any way
the effort of recreant American
ism to establish imperialism b'
force in Hawaii, nobody with his
senses believes. That the senti
ment of this country is in favor
of. annexation, I am unable to
see.- Men of average good sense,
who do not believe that every
thing President Cleveland does
must be the best thing, aro keen
ly alive to the other fact that
whatever he does is made the
pretext for assault by those who
opposed him bitterly before his
electiou and seized npnn every
opportunity to misrepresent him
afterwards. Take the Hawaii
question ont of partisanship and
it will settle itself like any other
teapot when the fire is removed.
