STATKMr.xr rr tiir. attoiuly oi:s
Rcvctlins; to theColonclcy matter,
Minister Ashfortl raid Minister
Thurston was disingenuous in not
stating his real reasons for opposing
this innjotity uf the Cabinet, which
wero that lliy law pio'cribed tho
clfutlon to tttku place tho accotul
February after tho signing of thu
Colonel's conuniislon, and V. V.
Afchford having been coninii&sioncd
in August, 1880, Uio t'lecticui in
question imis the firai and not thu
second February thereafter. He
could rccnlkct the S'inrj J'robl wilb
which the Minister of Foreign Af
fairs said, "Oh, wo havo "settled
that." I replied that that was u
matter that 1, as law olllw of tho
Crown, bud something to do with
Settling. They deeliiud to givu
reasons at first, but linally Mr.
Thurston said V. V. Asliford had
thrown the election for llicm, Hint
he had wiitten asnlnsl them in llic
Elele, etc. 1 replied that that, was
in the line of the alleged Gihsotiian
reason of "not in accotd." J. never
heard tho reason that it wni hi? com
plioily in the inauri cation until I
heard it from tho Minister of the
Interior the other day. It was sug
gested that it wotdd have been stul
tifior.tion of the 3Iinisiers toijo back
on their dnoision. That term was'
rolled round with loving forvrr by
tho Minister of Finance. I Mij-jtct-ed
that I had never been in a place
before where people novo so fond of
that term in tlidr words and so
averse to it in their actions.
"Alas to thin!: how people's creeds '
Arc contradicted by their deeds."
The speaker quoted vEsop'.s fable
with the moral, "The animal that
changed its mind was ji man, and
the .tiiimul that did not cluuiye lt-
mind-was a jackals. " I opposed
thu three Ministers again when they
presented the cotmni-uion m! Major
Hebba'rd as Colonel to His Majesty.
I considuicd myself as the. law ad
viser to the Crown and advised! lis
Majesty so. I wilj not .bo intimi
dated by.the Supreme Court, if it
was twice as large, iiilo giving, ad
vice that I regard as wrong. Teat
was simply a little preliminary skir
mish, that was only part ot their plan
to lorcu their treaty. Thoy wanted
to get a man who was under their
thumb for Colonel. Major llebbard
is a superior officer who could make
his niaik if he got an oppor
tunity in military circles (he. in a
Canadian by birth although an Am
erican by adoption) ; but being in
the Inleiior Department they.con-i-idcrcd
him under their control.
They louud they could not handle
me. They dropped the Colonelcy
question. 1 thou'gl'it the treaty .was
dead and buried. I was not agreed
with them befoio, but-am still less
now. For in view of the situation
in the United States now it would
put in in a position of complete
tubserviency to the United Slates
without any benefits, uc could make
no treaties nor do anything without
the consent of Uncle Sam. And as
long as I am a member of this Cabi
net I will not consent to any such
treaty. Then a conference was
called at the Foreign Ollice. A
number of gentlemen were called in
there. They were called in to in
timidate your humble servant, so
that I would agice wi.h the other
Ministers in recommending the
treaty to His Majesty. I was there
to do ray duty to His Majesty and
to the country. I believe I was
light, I do not care how this House
may vote, I stick to it because I be
lieve 1 was right, 1 believe I have
the whole country with me.
Minister Ashford leplled to the
charge of insincerity in that he had
different views fiom those he held
la3t September. It was a great
shock to them when the matter had
blown. That passage in Article i
was put on a separate paper, so that
.it could bo removed belore being
shown to the King. It wns to be a
choice between the two articles after
heating the views of Mr. Carter and
Mr. Elaine. If any member denied
that he could only say his memory had
gone to McGiuty. Tho Miuiuter of
Finance was the confidential man of
the Cabinet and he tool: the draft to
thu King but forgot to take off that
"litllu joker," and, what we feared
all along, whenever the King saw
that he opposed it. If he was any
body but a Kiug.. I would sny lie
"bucked," but a King never
"bucks." Tho majority of the
Cabinet submitted the opinion of
majority rule to the King, but they
confined it to thu Colonelcy mutter,
showing that tho Colonelcy question
was only a handmaid to the treaty
mutter. Tho Minister of Interior
rnissiatcs tho matter when ho says I
advised His Majesty not to lake the
advice of the majority of the. Cabi
net. My advice to the Kiug was,
"Don't sign that treaty." The Min
ister red lrom a slip of paper what
purported to be a verbatim report
of my words on that occasion. I do
not lecognize them as my words,
nevertheless I will not ia!so the
question of veracity on that matter.
I advised the King that thu opinion
was not binding because It was not'
an opinion, inasmuch as tho Su
ptenie Court decided that such an
opinion being ex parte, delivered
without urjiument on either side,
ws not to be-considered in tho light
of a decision, and inasmuch as it
had uo'vefoionco to the treaty, and
DA1J7.Y .DULLKTfN: HONOLULU, li. J.,
because I believed it to bo wrong
The speaker returned to tho ques
tion of his change of views on the
treaty, and told of the agreement of
the Cabinet, when thi-y found tlm
game was up, for or.-h Minister to
thaw up a "plm-tbli! esreltsu" for
the treaty. They all went back to
Cabinet meeting with their "little
patch woi Its." Some was tai.cn from
each but the hulk catuu from the
draft of tho Minister of the Interior.
The speakir admitted having been
wrong but clnimod to be tight now.
The Minister of Interior Wiisenliitcd
to tho credit of cousiitoneiy "the
logic, of fools " IId was now pre
paied to take up the matte:- most Im
mediately important to himself,
namely, hit alleged participation in
the'insurioe.tion last year.
Iiefernng to hU action beloie the
King, ho ald: One' MiuUtor in
coming away from the Palace' was
so carried away by wrath that he
swore nt mo mid Daid, " L'lmt action
of yours will damn you out of tho
country." Thi-y therefoto prepared
a conspiracy and thought they could
damn me nut of tun country through
mv brother. They circulated reports
tlfal R. W.' Wiles aud V. V. Ash
ford wero getting up a conspiracy,
aud that C. W. Aslifoid was with
them. It. was in consequence of
these rumors that I called the Mar
shal to my office, and in piesencc of
my depu:y,Mr. CrcIghton,asked him
what these rumors were. lie said cer
tain rumor? worn brought to him, that
he believed they were true,and theic
foro thoe precautions wore taken.
That was on April 1G. Tho Minis
ter of the Interior charges mo with
obstructing measures for preserving
the peace. The first day I had the
interview with the Marshal the
meeting of merchants had been held
the night before at tho Iron Works,
the Minister ot Interior as L am in
formed being present. That -was
one da) before I ever expressed an
opinion to the Marshal as to how
mutters should bo conducted. These
Ministers relused to give fno any
infoimalioi! as to the source of their
information. I claim, jifiiead of
the police department, the legal aud
ethical right to have been informed.
If they hud not sulneieut reasons to
cause my arrest they had not suffi
cient teasons for withholding from
me information as chief law officer
of this kingdom. The situation was
not as the Minister of Interior
state". There was no scare in this
city until the Minister of Interior
raised it raised it for the purpose
of driving me out. I have informa
tion that it had all becu cut and
dried for a delegation to go up and
urge tho treaty on tho King, until
my letter came out in the 15lti.li:tis,
when one gentleman backed out.
I charge that this whole thing was a
conspiracy got up by the Minister of
the Interior in older to discredit me
and my brother so that the treaty
could bo rushed through,
The Minister of the Interior lijed
to diiiw the conclusion from my let
ter to the Marshal in August, that
because those precautions were ne
cessary then they were s"o now. In
an election speech, he compared his
opponents to tho Bourbons, because
they learned nothing aud forgot
nothing. He seemed to be of that
kind himself in his reference to that
letter. There wero certain things
existing at that time which made
those precautions necessary. There
were sixteen prisoners confined in
that Station then on charges of trea
son, and it was believed in this
community that, so strong was the
sympathy of some of' the natives,
that they would make ti sortie to
rescuo those prisoners. April 17
there were no stato prisoncrsin that
Station. Thero wero no conspira
cies. If the Ministers aud the Mar
shal say they havo information of
contemplated disturbances, allow me
to say that I doubt their word. If
such information wai so sacred that
it could not havo been committed
to me, it must have existed only in
their minds. The Minister justified
that tesort to armed force on the
ground that it was the Marshal's
duty to guard against possible as
well as probable danger. That held
good, then but not now. It in possi
ble that those gentlemen outside
the bar mlahl swarm in here and
pitch us all out of tho windows, but
I do hot believe it is probable.
Now why should thero not be an
aimed guard to prevent those gen
tlemen from pitching us out? My
inslructiMis to the Marshal were, if
he believed there was danger, to put
ri sufficient guard there, but as ho
refused to tell mo what his informa
tion wns I did not believe it. These
things were going on for sonui time
beforo I heard of them. It was
street rumors and references in tho
native and foreign press that caused
me to ask for that interview. Yet
tho Minister tells you that it was
when I showed my hand that they
took the, precautious. I said to my
deputy, "1 suppose that fool will
have a double guard there to-night,
because he thinks I havo my eye on
the Station." The Minister of In
terior grieves because I did not go
down to the Station to enforce my
orders on the Marshal. I might
havo gone down there at night, I
might havo precipitated a very dls
ugrecablo condition between . the
Marshal and myself. Myfcgard for
peace was so strong that I gave
the Marshal all the rope ho wanted,
beoatbo I wished to givo my ene
mies no ground of further action.
The second grlovaucfof the Minis
ter of Inleiior is that I wns not
there on the night of April 17. Ho
complained that I was asleep at
home, I wa3 and vastly tnoro com
fortable than he. I was home be-
cause the Marshal had no confidence
in me. Ho was acting unlawfully
under instructions of another. Hit
did tint "send for me because 1 was '
a brother of V. V. Ashford. lie did
not send for either of his deputies
beeausu liu had no need of them. It.
wasapolltieal conspiracy against one i
man because he wa3 doing his '
duty to his kiug and country, to J
prevent a balnrtl ruinoxntieii
scheme from being forced on the
country. It was a conspiracy, it
wns n put-up job. The Minister of
the Interior was at the bottom of it.
Whatever public excitement there
was at that time was not n cause, it
was a result, of their action. I do
not charge all who met at the
Foundry and at thu K-imehanielm
School wero co-conspiiators with
the Minister- some of tin in were
his dupes. It has been nought by
the Minister to minimise Hie acts of
the Marshnl. I call tho lion, mem
ber lor Koolaupoko (Rep. Hush) to
wi'iiest) Unit I called )iiiu over to
my office utmost the. only time I
ever spoke to him and nsked him
for heaven's sake to ask the natives
in his paper to keep nl home at
night and give no ground for action
winch I belie ed was intended to
preefpitnte disturbance?. I wonder
if the Mnrshal had not sonde enough
he has not much anyway to tee
that the Minister of Interior was
making a fool of him. It waj stated
that tliere wore only four or five
armed men there that night. I
stiled that there were forty men
according to my information and
that one galling gun was run out.
The Marshal'!, brollur-indaw, Mr.
Ficd Wundenbcrg, Postmaster-
Genera!, ouu deep in the confidence
of these gentlemen, arrested a
foreign citizen and ltd h:m a tramp
out through Pnlama after a phan
tom. They didn't find it any more
than they found 'a cause for a guard
at the Station. I am the uioru will
ing to accept the statement of the
Minister of Interior than my former
information because it shows elcaily
that they never expected any at
tack that night, for if they expected
an attack they would have had fifty
or sixty .men, and it simply shows,
that he is shamming. I deny onf
phaticaUy belore God that I bad
any information that thero was any
reason to believe that there was
anybody contemplating a disturb
ance. If I am falsifying in this
matter I hope I may never sec the
smile of that God whose word is
truth. The purpose was not in con
nection with the preservation of
peace at all. -It was for the pur
pose of carrying out the prediction
ot my honorable colleague, that I
would" be damned out of this coun
try. Their defense is that they
had reason to apprehend a disturb
ance from R. W. Wilcox and V. V.
Asliford and that 1 was conniving
with them. If thov had reason to
suspect R. W. Wilcox and V. V.
Ashford it was their duty'to have
infoim.ed me, and if they also had
reason to suspect nie they should
have had all three in tho cell down
there. I impeach and I brand my
colleagues here with being partners
in a vile conspiracy. The whole
matter hinges on my refusal to join
them in their annexation scheme
and oii my not being an annexation
ist as they are annexationists under
a mask. I have occupied more time
than any member that has spoken
in this House in my experience,
but it was necessary since the Min
ister of the Interior plowed up so
much ground that I followed him
.and turned up more skulls than he
cared to see.
Noble Widemann moved that this
report be translated, printed, and
referred to a special committee. He
did this not to shut off thu Minister
ot the Interior bat to save time.

had got away beyond tho general
question. It had got Into a dis
grncclui Cabinet light, that was all it
was. He thought the proper way to
dispose of the matter was that the
icply of the Attorney-General bo
printed, and when it was brought in
that the Houso disposed of it. It
was out of order to order it printed
and referred at the same lime. He
moved an amendment that the
reply b'e translated and printed.
Minister Thurston I do not pi o
posed to make any"specch now in
reply to tho Attorney-General. 1
simply wish here and now to make
certain specific denials which tuny
go to tho public along with the state
ments of the Attorney-General. I
can scarcely express my opinion of
the statements of the Attorney
General. If it was parliamentary I
would say that tho Attorney-General
is the most cold-blooded falsiller I
ever heard. Rut as it is not parlia
mentary I will not say it.
1. I deny that I urged Daniel
Foster as President of the Hawaiian

Ashford concerning it.
'J. I deny that at a meeting at my

Minister Damon I wish 1o deny
as an honest man that I took that
tieaty to the King with the intention
of concealing that last clause. I
Bald to His Majesty that whenever
we got that piopositlon in writing
every member of the Cabinet'opposed
it. His Majesty said: "Mr., Damon,
why did you leave that clause off?"
aud I said, "Jlucause. your Majesty,
It does not belong to this Govern
ment." I say this honestly and
truly, and in. presence of every Ha

Miubter Asliford having takeu the
floor, Noble Widemann rises to n point
Minister Ashford I wish to re
move this misapprehension from the
Minister of Finance. (Calls of
"Ninau.") I will stand here till
tlic President calls me to order,
