Mr. WO Smith, who said:
Mr. Chairman and gentlemen: I
am only a visitor here to-night and
did not come prepared to make any
remarks at all. I belong to District
No. 2 and I will occupy your atten
tion just for a moment. 1 wish on
all occasions to lift my voice in favor
ot reform and good government, ir
respective of individuals, cioed or
Mr. W. C. Wilder: Mr. Chair
man and gentlemen: 1 do not
P really see why gentlemen outside of
your District should be particularly
called upon to make remarks here.
This is a meeting called not for
speech-making, but for organization,
and I am glad to see so nfany of you
heio preseut to form an organiza
tion. I have always found that in
political matters, organization is
strength and if all those in tho City
of Honolulu in all the Districts pull
together I have no doubt they will
bo successful. But if every indivi
dual is to have a platform and a
candidate of his own, I am afraid
that yon will bo unsuccessful. Let
us organize and support in evory in
stance the nominees of our caucuses
and conventions: if a person can
not do that he should not put his
mime to this roll. A pctson in the
Stales in either political organization,
llepiiblican or Democratic, who
should bolt a Domination for person
al reasons would bo virtually read
out of the party. J am glad to see
so many Hawaiian liete this even
ing and I hope and trust that they
'will feel it to their interest to act
with the liaoles iu tho coming elec
tion. You will find that if you elect
a good ticket, they will not only leg
islate for Hawaiian interests as well
as the foreign, hut for the interests
of all. One word iu regard to nomi
nees, I hope that this organization
in connection wjth all the other or
ganizations will not go outside of
their organization for nominees.
Mr. W. B. Oleson said: Mr.
President and gentlemen; 1 can un
derstand why yon should call ot(
gentlemen from tho first and sec nd
wards to qpenlc this c ening ; lipi-ninc
they iitue got out of the womls and
they know where they are, but out
thcic in the fifth ward wo have not
got nut of the woods yet; it i ex
cessively muddy out there and clou
dy (laughter). I didn'texpect that
I was to come horo and catch the
neighboihood ; we hope to sec all out
there by and by, but we came inhere
to get light rather than to give it. I
have simply one thought to leave
with you, and that is that it is the
necessity that is upon us in all the
Districts to perfect our organization.
There arc such matters as looking
after the proper registration of olos
and examining the regiler to sec
that it is not improperly loaded.
There is a matter also of having a
per.sonal knowledge of every Miter
in tho District. Thcso are matters
which cannot be attended to too
soon. 1 think that in not so doing
the organization of the District clubs
thus far has been defective in this,
that no special, carefully "elected
committee has been appointed for
the express purpose of cxainiiiing
the register and of locating every le
gal vour in the District and ascer
taining bis exact standing. I will
leave you with the expression of the
hope and tho feeling that 1 have that
the lteform Parly, so called, or if
you choose any other name which is
as well, is in better standing to-day
than it has been at any time in the
last twelve months. Circumstances
have biouht this about. Personal
prejudices are being sunk and men
are seeing the interests at slake
fairly and clearly, they see each oth
er face to face and the real interests
of good government are coming a
gain to the uppermost in men's
thoughts, and 1 am sure that this
will lie true not only among those
who aro foreigneis, but among those
who are natives. I cannot talk any
longer because the interpieter does
not give me a clianco (laughter).
Mr. Barney Ordenstcin (applause)
said: Mr. Chairman and voters of
the third ward. It is hardly fair to
call upon inc at such a late hour
after such a display ot eloquence and
good speaking. 1 have never been
a Noble like some of them I hat have
been present here, nor am I an aspi
rant for any position of that nature;
still on occasions of that kind it is
nothing but right for everyone that
is in for good government to express
his opinions. I had made up my
mind to retire and be quiet, but
somehow or other, whenever I lead
in those newspapers that there is a
ward meeting, Barney's got to be
around (laughter). I have but very
little to sa3', as some of the speakers
before me have fully expressed my
sentiments. 1 fully endorse tho an
nouncement thathan been made late
ly in behalf of the Cabinet of the
principles to be followed up by the
Reform Government and I shall not
only be glad, but shall do my utmost
to support all such men that coin
cide with them (applause). I hope
that a feeling that has existed here
and gotten up by a good many how
lers or growlers, whatever you may
call them, will cease soon and that
everyone that is in for good govern
ment and believes in the principles
of the Reform Paity will put his
shoulders to the wheel and do the
best he can under the circumstances.
I will close for this evening and when
the time comes, when the nomina
tions arc made, 1 shall be willing
and only happy to come around
again, although 1 belong to the se
cond ward, and give you a little of
Barney in the third ward (applause).
Mr. L. A. Thurston, who was
received with applause, snid: Mr.
chairman and gentlemen As Mr.
Wilder has said this is more a ipoet
ing for organization than for speech
making. But my attention has I'een
called to one thing which I Dunk
well to speak of to-night; that is
the matter of the negotiations con
cerning the proposed treaty bettfoou
this country and the United Sj.i"-t'?,
which has boon the constant th ic
of discussion and statement ii he
Oiaio and Kalco, edited by Mr. . ohn
VI. Bush. Mr. Bush is known to all
of you ; he has been in ollice sevcial
times, lie apparently wants to hold
ollice again, ami in searching around
for something by which to climb
into ollico again, he has stumbled on
to a political mare's nest. He has
raised the hue and cry that the Gov
ernment proposes to sell out and
cede the independence of the coun
try to the I'nited States. Now, the
independence of this country is a
lender point with me. When I speak
of "homo" I do not look across the
water for that place. I belong here,
all my interests are hero. For four
generations my family has lived
here, and 1 hope that they will live
here for four generations longer in a
free and independent country (gieat
applause). When the matter first
came out ami was made public in
the press, Mr. Bush raised the hue
and cry that ho was on the inside
track; that he had caught the .Min
isters in a programme to sell out tho
country and that he was going to be
the savior of tho country. On tho
garbled statement that he published
a niabs meeting wus held at the Chi
nese Theatre, which was packed
from top to bottom full ol patriotic
sentiment. In the meeting that
night tho people were told by him
and they believed, that there was a
scheme for annexation, that the
Cabinet wcro trying to mortgage
nway Hie independence of the coun
try. J am proud of that meeting.
t shows tho sensitiveness of this
people concerning anything which
affects their freedom, their indepen
dence and their right of absolute
self-government. The Ilawiiiians
tin lint w.itit to m'i- theit cntiiitry r
tin- independence of their countiy
ceiled away or tampered with, and
what is more they will not allow it.
Neither will the Ministers who tepro
sent the country allow it. (Ap
plause.) 'The meeting appointed a
committee of 13 to ascertain the
facts concerning the matter. The
committee were, so fur as I know,
every one of Hietn politically hostile
to the Cabinet. They by appoint
ment met the Cabinet; they wot e
told that lliert! was no infoi illation
concerning the niatUr that they
were not welcome to. All informa
tion was given lo them and Ihev
were told to ask any questions tin1,,
desired and they would he answer
ed ; they asked questions until they
had no more to ask ; when they went
away they said they bad nothing
more to ask, and several of the lead
ing members said that they wcro
satisfied witli the infortunium given.
They were lo have reported back to
the meeting the results of their in
terview with the Cabinet, but were
apparently to well satisfied that they
liavi! never from that day to this
made a tcport to the meeting, and
have allowed the matter to drop.
This morning Mr. Hush again re
turns to the attack with the further
statement ol new developments. All
along his lay has been to charge the
Chief Justice with being the lather
of Ihe treasonable scheme which his
imagination lias conjured up. What
his particular animus against the
Chief Justice is I do not know, un
less it is that the. Chief Justice has a
prejudiced idea that Sunday comes
on Sunday, and has the courage of
his convictions, which conflicts with
Mr. Bush's theory that Sunday
comes on Saturday. (Laughter.)
He is apparently trying lo get even
with the Chief Justice' heretical
opinions by charging him with trea
son. (Great applause.) I can
state here, however, that the Chief
Justice has had no more to do, and
does not know any more about what
is proposed to be done concerning
the matter than any other citizen.
The Cabinet is of opinion that a
matter of this kind which alfccts the
whole country and every resident
in it, is not one which should be de
cided by any cabinet or by any
limited number of men. It is a
public question affecting the whole
public, and the Cabinet does not
propose to do anything further than
to prepare for submission to the
Legislature for their approval or dis
approval a proposition upon the lines
publicly stated in our platform. At
present there is nothing to present
to them, and very possibly there
may be nothing to present. All
that is now being done or is propos
ed to be done is to get tho matter
into proper shape for consideration.
There is nothing secret; nothing
which we have not publicly stated,
nothing which we do not propose to
publicly advocate before the people,
and nothing which will not be fairly
and squarely laid before the repre
sentatives of the people (applause).
There is another thing which I think
is worthy of notiie as we go into
this political campaign, and that is
ihe constitution of the opposition.
I recently saw a squib iu a repub
lican newspaper to the effect that
the Chicago city government had
just published a directory ot the
members of the democratic party,
and that it was called the Delin
quent Tax List (laughter). We
have an opposition which is saying
continually that the people are be
ing oppressed, that they ought to
have additional legislation and they
ought to be given additional rights.
Now just take a list of these people
who arc proclaiming these disinter
ested sentiments, that are being con
sumed with devotion to the public
and the poor dear people, and you
will find that it is a pretty good di
rectory of those who a short time
ago would not admit that the people
had any rights at all. When we
asked for economy, for retrench
ment, for a decent election law ; to
keep government olficers out of the
Legislature, they laughed us to
scorn. Year after year they were
in power and kept in operation the
iniquitous election law by which
every voter who came up had to pro
duce a tax receipt. They knew that
it simply prevented the poorer class
of natives ft oni voting as they chose.
The candidates stood at the polls
with their fists full of tax receipts
with a mortgage on every voter.
When there was an attempt made to
change the law in 1880, oven to the
extent of preventing candidates
from acting as inspectors of election
they simply would not hear of it.
When they were in power and had
the opportunity, did they advocate
that the Government olficers ought
to be olccted or that the Nobles
ought to bo elected at all? The
amount of it is that when they weie
in, they would not reform anything,
and now that they aro nut they waul
to relorin everything. It seems to
mo Hint wo can reasonably draw the
conclusion that the opposition are
not acting on any principles which
we need fear; they arc a disorgan
ized lot who are simply trying to
get back to the position where they
wcro twa years ago, but which by
their own actions they have forfeit
ed; if they had conducted the Gov
ernment iu a reasonably decent man
lier at that time and liud a reason
able respect for the rights of others,
tliore never would havo been suiy
movement two years ago and they
might have bepn carrying on the
Govormuent, at their own sweet will
to-day. It seems to me that they
have forfeited the trust which they
now ask to have given back to them,
and that it will bo benrllcial to the
i-outiln if they (milium1 for ti while
longer lo occupy the position of the
"loyal opposition." (Great ap
plause.) The meeting then adjoin nod sub
ject to the call of the chairman.
EniToit Bti.i.i'.Tis : Dame Humor
is busy with leport of another dis
agreement between His Majesty and
his constitutional advisers. i
Some of tho native newspapers I
contain references to Hie disagree- I
ineiiti and ascribe it to the refusal i
on the part of 1 1 i Majesty to sign a
document presented to him for sig
nature by the Ministry.
The street lias it that the docu
ment was the treaty published iu the
papers of this city in October last,
and again il is said that it was not
the treaty, but a commission giving
power to an olllcial to open negotia
tions for the lormation of a tiealy.
Whatever the document may be,
il seems to me that the Mi.nistiy
now has an oppoitnnity for showing
that the watchword of the Reform
Party has a meaning. We are re
peatedly told that, the new order of
affairs,' inaugurated on the 3()lh
Juno, 1SS7, meant " government of
the people, by the people, for the
people." A giand statement, truly,
if those who utter it are sincere.
There are some persons who say,
thoughtlessly il is to be Imped, that
His Majesty should be forced to sign
the document. Such persons have
only lead history to remember me
thods prevailing in Mexican and
South American states.
Opportunities for the display of
high purposes and lofty aims come
infrequently to men of affairs, and
when they do present themselves
the truly great make the most of
In this little state we are upon the
eve of a general election and an op
portunity is tints presented for the
