The Lclcihokii Guaids were

In the Assembly room the space
to the right of tho throne was set
apart for the Cabinet, the Clergy
and the Supreme Judiciary j that on
tho left for the diplomatic and con
sular service and other distinguished
guests. Tho seats in the immediate
front were reserved for membcts of
the House of Nobles and of the

Messrs. J. S. Webb, J. A. Has
singer, W. O. Atwater, Henry

Stillman acted as ushers, showing
guests and visitois to scats with tho
least possible confusion.
At 12 o'clock sharp the band
struck up the national anthem, and

Nobles and Representatives:
During the interval since the last,
meeting of tho Legislative Assembly
My Kingdom has experienced a
period of steady progress notwith
standing many adverso circumstan
ces, with which, In common with
every civilized conntry in the world,
Hawaii has had to contend. The
Nation has increased in population,
in productive power, and in gcnoral
welfare, unci nt tho same time en
joys, as I am well assured, a better
standing in its relations to the Great
Powers of the world.
The arrangements entered into for
reciprocal commciclal advantages
between Hawaii and the United
States of America have been main
tained, to the mutual benefit of the
two countries. It will bo the aim
of My Government to continue to
maintain these relations with our
gi eat neighbor. At the same time,
it Is satisfactory to Mo to bo nble to
that the condition of the coun-
trv and of our grow ing commercial
lelalions with rations parts of the
world are sullleicnt to prove that
My Kingdom contains within itself
all the elements and conditions or a
steady progress and of independent
1 am happy to state to you that
gieat and friendly Powers of Eu
rope, conjointly with the United
States of America, have evinced sym
pathy with the policy of My Govern
ment, that Hawaii should be per
mitted to exercise an influence in
Polynesia to which she may claim to
be entitled by supeiior opportuni
ties and position. This intluencc I
desire to have exercised in the politi
cal guidance and instruction of
sister Polynesian communities with
the view to the promotion among
them of civilized forms of govern
ment, and the securing for thorn of
an assured independence.
My lclations with My Great and
Good Friend the Emperor of Japan
continue to be of the most fiicudly
character, and My Minister of For
eign Affairs has concluded the nego
tiation and ratification of a Conven
tion of Immigration with the gieat
Empire, which is well calculated to
promote the favorable development
of all industiial enterprises in My
My Minister of Finance will lay
before you a statement showing that I
the estimated revenue of My King
dom is amply sufficient to meet the
current expenses of My Govern
ment. At the same time there will
be presented for your consideration
entei prises of an exceptional and
important diameter, such as immi
gration and works of internal im
provement which can only be pro
perly carried out by the use of the
credit of the Nation. In view of
the necessity for these exceptional
expenditures, and of the charges on
the revenue which they must involve,
I recommend to you the considera
tion of such measures of supply as
will render the financial position of
the country stable.
The care of the health of My peo
ple has occupied very fully the
attention of tho Authorities charged
with its surveillance. Although the
Nation continues to be, in a marked
manner, afllicted with a grievous
malad', I am happy to give you the
assurance that, with imptoved treat
ment, the disease is under a moro
The cause of education continues
to be well maintained in My King
dom, and as I am anxious that the
rising generation of Hawniians
bhotild be well qualified to take a
part in the practical business of life,
I recommend that provision should
bo made for tho establishment of a
A great disaster has befallen
tho capital, in a fire of such magni
tude as to assume the proportions
of a national calamity. Happily,
however, through the prompt action
of My Government sustained by
My Privy Council of State, and
aided by the ever ready benevolence
of citizens of Honolulu, the severity
of the misfortune has been greatly
mitigated. I iccommcnd for your
early consideration measures for the
restoration of tho destioycd portion
of the city, in a manner which will
be hereafter recognized as conven
ing a national loss into a national
It is a source of satisfaction to
Me, that Ocean Steam Communica
tion under the Hawaiian Flag has
become an established undertaking.
My Ministers will recommend for
your consideration measures for tho
encouragement and expansion of
an enterprise so essential to the pro
gress and prosperity of tho King
dom. Gentlemen, with a firm trust in
your intelligence and patriotism, I
recommend to your careful consider
ation and notion the measures neces
sary for the general welfaio of My
Kingdom, and I invoke thoguidanco
and blessing of the Almighty upon
