The Mystery Solved.
Mr. Daggett's Mission to
its Failure !
TRUSTWORTHY ALTHOUGH NOT
A letter from Washington has
been shown to us, which reveals the
burden of the mission of Mr. Dog
gelt, ex-Minister Resident of the
United Stales in Hawaii, from the
Government of this kingdom to the
United States Government, at tho
close of his term here. The com
mission entrusted to Mr. Daggett
was simply in relation to an old
claim of this Government against
the American Government. At tho
date of the letter referred to, Mr.
Daggett had left "Washington for
San Francisco, having been authori
tatively advised to abandon his
mission. From the cxtraoi dinary
course pursued by the Hawaiian
Government that of sending a re
called foreign minister on a
delicate embassy to the Government
recalling him this kingdom there
fore secures the not unusual privi
lege of paying, dearly no doubt, for
an entirely unnecessary and, as it
proves, useless diplomatic mission.
It is to be hoped the facts of the
case will be as extensively circu
lated through the great journals of
England, America and Australasia,
as the first sensational report of Mr.
Daggett having been commissioned to
treat for the sale of the Islands to
the Washington Government.
THE CAROLINE ISLANDS.
WHAT ONE 01' THE MISSIONARIES SAYS.
Following is a letter addressed to
the Secretary of the Hawaiian Board
of Missions, and received by last
mail from Queensland. It will bo
read with no little interest, after all
that has already been published
relative to the Caroline Islands dis
pute, and the reference of the ques
tion by Prince Bismarck to tho
Pope's mediation :
1'onafk, Oct. ICth, 1885.
Deak Brother: Please excuse a
hasty note. You will want to hear
the news. Germany, in tho person
of Captain Pudderaan, commanding
the war vessel Albatross, is now in
port, and has just taken Ponapc.
The imperial iiag has been raised
ashore, fifty marines assisting. A
treaty was made with nil the Kings,
iive of them, to surrender, so far as
oach one could, his rights to Ponapo.
Emperor William take full possess
ion. The ostensible reason offered
is to protect German Commerce.
But this protection of German inter
ests will also include all native and
foreign rights. Lands held by any
foreignor will be secured to him j so
will all of our mission interests,
lands, schools, teaching, preaching
and Churches. These arc the gen
ertfl. tef ri)3 of the treaty. No doubt
in tmio some olllcial will be appoint
ed to,w,ork up laws, put the land in
aeVtfraity' to tho people, and net
theriWo tax paying" which will in
clude not a little work for and by
them. But Ponapc Is not alone
taken. So arc tiio Pclew Island,
Yap, Udeai and Ruk. The vessel
leaves here for Kiuaio in a day or
two, when that will be taken. Then
will have been taken the whole of
the Carolino Islands. Tho vessel
did not call at the Mortlocks, be
cause of a gale, but she is to return
to take possession there. While the
vessel was at Yap, she found there
a Spanish vessel from Manila, with
priests, troops, a governor, and
much material imported for dwell
ings. The purpose olthe Spaniard
flilfci&lli.i. &.V&&3 .lrflfeflL,l,f.Jnl., ...JJX, -ttlA-jf
was lo take Yap, but, on arriving,
that was not formally done. The
German vessel was a little sharper,
hoisting her flag denoting sover
eignly before the Spaniard, thus
taking possession first, which, when
tho Spanish vessel saw, she mado
the best of it, and backed out, leav
ing Germany master of the field.
Somewhere in the European Coun
cils, Germany having said she meant
to take the Carolines, Spain replied,
she held them by the priority of dis
covery. Germany replied she had no
respect for sudi ownership, possess
ion was the n'y tuic way of hold
ing them. Inunui ately she sent
out her war vessel U, t.1 c the islands,
if not possessed by uuj other power,
and she has possessed them. This
is a little hard for the natives, but
tho feeble must succumb to the
stronger. It would have been futile
for us to have protested. The only
way was to make it as plain lo the
natives first as possible. Wc did
this, and then advised them to sub
mit to the inevitable. It came hard
for them, but they did it with no
show of refusal, though I know some
of the Kings disliked it very much.
No doubt in the end it will be the
best thing for the people. And I
am inclined to think that it will not
bo many years before a German
Colony will be along, mainly to cul
tivate the land. And this may call
for some changes in our missionary
work. But we shall borrow no
trouble till it comes. I have given
you a hasty account of the events of
these days. Men of ideas are the
men to rule. May it all redound to
the glory of God and the extension
of Christ's Kingdom. I have just
made a visit around the island, and
found much to encourage and much
to weep over. I purpose to do a
largo amount of work in visiting,
this year. The girls' school is mov
ing on admirably. The little pupils,
by sewing, have donated, last year,
$35.00. This is well done for these
daughters so recently in dark hea
E. T. Doake.
The thermometer this noon stood
at C5 the lowest mid-day tem
perature recorded for the past five
years. Barometer falling. The
steam whistles to-day went as fol
Enterprise Mill 3 30 fast
Foundry 2 20 fast
Hopper's 1 50 fast
Honolulu Steam Planing Mill, correct.
I would call attention to this from
the fact that Mr. Lucas's whistle is
blown daily at 12 o'clock from
signal by electric bell communicated
directly from the Survey Office. At
this olllcc the correct time is known
to a second. It would seem as if
some arrangement might be made
by which the public could have the
advantage of this correctness of the
steam whistle which is secured by
the private enterprise of the Hono
lulu Steam Planing Mill. As it is,
the confusion of the different steam
signals makes it impossible for the
ordinary citizen to know which is
the right one, while really a signal
of that kind is practically the most
convenient standard for the general
public that can be devised. Occa
sionally, it is true, the wires may be
temporarily deranged like tho tele
phone wires ; but it is only excep
tional that is so, while there have
often been whole months without a
single failure of tho whistle lo blow
on time. C. J. Lyons.
