I'allu tlio proposal of the ICinj of
Hawaii for the extension of the dura
tion of the exMlng reoipioellv treat v
with the fulled State.
To the Senate of the United States.
I transmit herewith, for considera
tion by the Senate and appropriate
action thereon, a report of tlic Secre
tary of Slate communicating the
proposal of the King of Hawaii that
' the duration of the existing recipro
city treaty with the United States be
extended for a further definite
period of seven years.
The treaty having been heretofore
under consideration by your honor
able body, J deem it fitting to con
sult the Senate in the matter before
directing the negotiations to proceed.
Ciu:sri:n A. Airrnuii.
Executive Mansion, Washina-
tun, Juno 9, 1SS1. I
'To the Treshlent.
The question of tlic duration of
the existing treaty of reciprocity
with Hawaii has been under discus
sion in the Scnato since the expira
tion of the seven years' term fixed
by the treaty itself left the two Gov
ernments free to terminate the treaty
on twelve months' notice given by
cither to the other. A majority of
the Committee on Foreign Relations
of the Senate by its report of Janu
ary 24, 1881, has expressed its con
viction that the treaty should not be
terminated by the act of the United
States. The concluding paragraph
of that report intimates that it may
be a duty toward "the people of
both countries to give certainty and
permanence to the gratifying pros
perity which this treaty has created."
"Whatever permanence it may be
deemed on our part proper to give
to the provisions of the treaty can
not, it is evident, be secured while
, Hawaii, 011 its side, is at liberty to
give at any time the twelve months'
notice of termination.
His Majesty the King of Hawaii
has directed the Hawaiian Minister
in this country to propose the re
moval of this element of uncertainty
in the duration of the treaty by a
specific agreement extending it for a
further term of seven years.
The undersigned deems it proper
to suggest to the President the sub
mission of this proposition to tlic
Senate, in order that, if favorably
disposed thereto, that body may
signify, by resolution or otherwise,
its consent that the proposed exten
sion be negotiated.
The Hawaiian Minister's note of
April 18, 1881, containing this
formal proposal, is herewith laid be
fore the President for transmission
to the Senate, if he shall deem it
proper so to do, together with a
draft of an additional article to the
existing treaty, which is designed to
accomplish the suggested seven
years' permanence thereof.

Sin: 1 duly received your note
of the 18th ultimo, wherein you
state the advantages which would
flow from a definite understanding
as to the duration of the reciprocity
treaty between the United States and
Hawaii, instead of the present inde
terminate status whereby the treaty
may be terminated upon twelve
months' notice given by cither side,
and thereupon propose, on behalf of
His Majesty tho King of Hawaii, to
enter into an additional convention
extending tho definite duration of the
treaty for a further term of seven
It is thought best, the treaty
having been so long under consider
ation in tho Senate with a view to
deciding whether the interests of
this country require the termination
of the compact under the twelvo
months' option, now open to cither
party, that the Hawaiian proposal
should bo submitted to tlic Senate
in order that, if favorably disposed
Ihorcloi that body, In the oxcrclso of
its constitutional shrtro of the trcaty
mnkiiig power with the Executive,
may signify its consent that the pro
posed extension of lime shall be
effected by negotiating a formal con
vention to that end.
The President has accordingly
diiccicd that the proposal shall be
submitted to the Senate.
Promising myself the honor of
communicating the result to you in
due time, I embrace this occasion to
repeat to you, sir, tlic assurances of
my highest consideration.

Slit: The convention concerning
commercial reciprocity between the
United States and Hawaii of January
!!0, 1875, iias been productive of
most beneficial results to the trade
and commerce of both Nations as
shown by the great increase of trade
mutually profitable, and to an in
crease of American commerce un
equalled, as I believe, in any other
branch of the foreign commerce of
Hie United States. It has also
stimulated enterprises the continued
successful prosecution of which is of
importance to citizens of both Na
tions. There is no doubt also that the
convention has promoted cordial re
lations between the two countries,
and given strength to the political
autonomy of Hawaii.
Any doubts of the continuance of
the treaty relations which have pro
duced such gratifying results will
naturally tend to weaken its bene
ficent inllticneo and lessen its advan
tages to tlic people of both countries.
I5y its terms the convention is now
terminable on twelve months' notice
by either of the contracting parties.
Its successful operation, however,
during the first definite term of seven
years would seem to justify its
fuilher definite extension. 1 am,
therefore, authorized, if the Presi
dent concurs in these views, to
agree, on behalf of His Majesty my
sovereign, to extend the definite
duration of the treaty for a further
term of seven years, and thus re
move all doubts as to the intentions
of the two governments to foster
and maintain the relations now
happily existing between the United
Slates and Hawaii.
Trusting that these sentiments
which animate my sovereign will be
shaicd by tlic President and by your
self, and that the friendly ties now
subsisting between our respective
countries will be further strengthened
by an arrangement such as I am
authorized to conclude, 1 remain,
sir, with renewed assurances of dis
Your most obedicut servant,
