auti-Chiiicio agitation had been
brought to a successful issue, which
is claimed to have been the case
when the "Reform Party through
the Ministry" had "pledged itself
unequivocally to cany out the sped
lie legislation which had been ask-
i-d." As u matter of fact, Mr.
Kinney went in lo compel the Minis
liy to call u special session of the
LegMatnie to pass the "-pecilic
legislation" through its first stage.
He told foreigners and natives that
they should not allow Ihcmsches to
be fooled with anything lcs than
such a special session. The Minis
try weic compelled to fool Mr. Kin
ney and his supporters and sympa
thizers, because after a secret can
vass of their supporters they found
they could not trust the Reform
l'arty with the desired measure
before the elections. Hut although
Mr. Kinney thus failed in his main
object, lie is entitled to credit for
extorting from the Cabinet a declar
ation of policy on the question. He
cannot deny, however, that he re-

THE TREATY KILLED.
The Advertiser professes lo be
cognizant of "piivale advices from
Washington" which "indicate thai
the efforts of the National Reform
Party to break up any possibility of
a new lieaty with the L'nited States
Government have been completely
successful." That paper makes the
comment that "this result doubtless
giatilies and warms the National
Reform heart." If not it ought to,
as tin- result fully vindicates the
action of that party, when it opposed
the Ministry's proposed surrendei
of the country's independence. It
ought also lo giatify the Adver
tiser's he.ut, that journal having ex
pressed the belief ttint- changes in
the American tariff, imolving a
neutralisation of all the benefits of
I he present treaty, are only a matter
nt a measurable pei iod of time. "A
pretty pickle of fish we should be in,
if we were shorn of the benefits of
reciprocity while being left its name,
only to find that we could not im
piove our position in other maikets
without permission of the Puled
Rut the Advertiser misstates the
ti ue situation at Washington. The
idea, of the Government of the United
States waiting aiiNiously for the
closing of the polls in these islands
lo be guided by the results in their
fiscal policy is too absiitd for any
body but a disappointed dupe of the
Hawaiian Premier to believe for a
moment. The case in a nutshell is
simply this: Our Ministry proposed
a scheme ot tieaty levision involv
ing an American prolectoi ate. Piesi
ilent Harrison and Secretary Ulainc
were probably not disinclined to
enter into the compact if il were
shown to be desired by the people
of this country, although it might
involve some straining of the tradi
tional foreign policy of the Union.
The American Government is, by
the way, receiving some criticism at
home now for the extent to which
the national policy has been for
saken in the matter of Samoa.
When, however, Ihc results of the
elections in Honolulu leached
Washington, the Government,
doubtless with a teeling of relief,
recognized that the proposition for
treaty revision had not ennnated
fioni tin: people. They therefore
quietly droit the matter without any
resentment toward us which will
atfect in one iota the chances of
,' treaty renewal in 18.tl. The treaty
that we hae is satisfacloiy to this
country, it was never opposed di
icctly or indirectly by the National
Refoim Parly, and the prospects
for its renewal have only been dam
aged by the unauthorized, untimely,
and unpatiiolic meddling with the
eiforal question by the present
KINNEY AND HIS DEFENSE.
The Advertiser refers to an inci
dental mention of certain facts re
garding Mr. Kinney's recent politi
cal gymnastics as "a savage attack"
oir that gentleman. Theie was no
attack on Mr. Kinney but only a'
plain historical reference to his
vibrations between two diametric
ally opposite positions. This was
made simply in proof of the state
ment that one branch of the National
Reloi in Party had its origin in an
agitation arising within the Reform
Our contemporary goes on to
make Mr. Kinney out as "never so
thoroughly consistent, never so truly
the workiiigmarr's fiicml. as when
he took his stand in the late cam
paign." This Is, flifit, because hie
garded the result as being very far
If, now, Mr. Kinney had desired
to make a record of consistency, we
should have found him, when he
entered the election campaign, mak
ing his battle chiclly on the issue
that he had been so eager in urging
the Ministiy to adopt. This was to
becxpected because Mr. Kinney
had often and openly asserted his
belief that if the Ministry took up
witli anti-Chinese Rcntiments they
would be "knifed" by the Reform
planters and Queen street. Instead
of the agitator resuming hia agita
tion on the higher plane to which
the Cabinet had elevated it, how
ever, we find him hiking the stump
and running a c.inipaign sheet on an
entirely diffeienl subject. For
aught that escaped his tongue or
pen during the contest4, the people
might hae slept under a delusion
that Chinese formed the most desir
able class of immigiants.
So far, then, Mr. Kinney's boasted
consistency does not appear above
the surface of the muddy pool. He
w as not talking constitutional amend
ment for Chinese restriction at all,
but treaty revision for the pretended
purpose of averting European in
vasion! As, however, he had taken
a decided stand on the treaty matter
previous to the campaign, perhaps
this is where we aic to look for the
proof of his consistency. Let us
see. When the proposed treaty re
vision was divulged, Mr. Kinney's
indignation could scarcely be res
trained within tempeialc bounds.
He with many others regarded il as
a scheme to afford protection of
foreign bayonets for a clique here in
any measure1) they might choose to
force on the country. Then irr the
campaign we find Mr. Kinney divid
ing his energies between two main
points. First, in abuse of the for
eign branch of the National Refoim
Party for haing won the native as
sociation to co-operation with them
in a platform that comprised all the
ideas and hues of policy for which
he himself was so intensely exer
cised a Hew weeks previously. Sec
ondly, in linging the changes on the
lying issue raised by the Reform
Party in respect to the treaty with
the United States.
To show that no injustice is done
to Mr. Kinney, in regard to the first
point mentioned, we shall quote his
own woids. In a letter appearing
in the Hum.kti'v of Jan. 12," 1880,
Mr. Kinney said: "But what is
often mistaken for nnli-missionary
animus, and too often mixed up
with it, Is not intended as such, but
is a genuine political grievance, and
requires the organization of a party
to coricct, namely, the fact that the
foreigners, who have for the past
thirty years controlled the Govern
ment and the judiciary, have come
almost exclusively from among the
class representing land and capital
rather than labor." When Mr.
Kinney wrote those woids he believ-
hls satisfaction. On the contiary,
he continued to pose as the cham
pion of the lights of labor until
labor had oi gauieil and the organ
ization thcicof by negative indica
tions made it clear to him that his
championship was not particularly
Regarding lieaty revision, Mr.
Kinney, to have established consis
tency, ought to have explained be
fore espousing that untimely niea
sine, the secret of his eaily Impres
sions having become dissolved. The
draft had never been modified.
Theie was no evidence that the
Ministers had changed their minds,
but on the contiary they had made the
obnoxious protectorate feature more
emphatically their policy. The do
cument had undergone no mutations
that made il less a means of secur
ing perpetual power lo "Ihe class re
presenting land and capital ralhei
than labor" with the aid of foreign
military forces. Mr. Kinney de
fense in the Adveitiser simply re
peats the bunkum of the Reform
campaign, much of it put foilh by
himself in the Times, when it runs
into rhetorical ratiocinations on the
results that would follow abiogation
of the reciprocity treaty. This
species of sluff and nonsense is all
disposed of when the facts aie
slated, that Um1 iinpoiling of the
treaty Into the c.inipaign by the Re
form Puity was ulteily uncalled for,
and that the National Reform P.iily
never took any stand against the
treaty or that would impel il the
measure in anywise. The clause in
favor of a joint protectorate would
doubtless never have been thought
necessary in the National Reform
Patty's platform, had the issue of
independence not been distinctly
raised by the Ministry's pioject ot
placing the kingdom's alfairs under
the control of a single foieigu
Power. We cannot be so "savage"
toward Mr. Kinney as lo insinuate
that he was not fully awaic of the
rratuieof the campaign in this re
spect, for which he lent or otherwise
conveyed the support of his talents
on the platfoim and in the pi ess.
His early impressions of tieaty re
vision probably stuck lo him in
wardly, only changing their base of
operations from the intellect to the

In this morning's editorial it accuses
the National Reform l'arty of being
opposed to the treaty with rude
Sain. When and where did the said

in the T. C. A. is'soie, is very evi
