Noblo Thurston said tho Attornoy-
Qonoral had said it. wis a matter of
taste whether the Cabinot was voted
out or not. That was not s,o. It
was not a matter of taste, personal
fooling or jealousy. "Ot all sad
things of tongue or pen tho saddest
nro those," to have boon a Cabinet
Minister. Tlioro was no position so
hard to boar, so thankless, as that of
a Cabinot Minister. Ho did not,
therefore, oppose thebo men for hiin-
v self or his fiionds. but on urineinle.
Sovoral spoakors had said personal
fooling was tho motive of the opposi
tion. He had no more of that than
ho had a few days ago when they
had stood shoulder to shoulder in
voting out tho piovious Ministry and
later thoj wore all yachting together
at Pearl Harbor on the best of
terms. If " gonial Paul " was not his
friond as much aftorwards as before:
if Mr. Macfarlano did not work with
him as much and as cordially as be
fore in advertising tho country
abroad, it certainly would not ' '
fault. It had been said tho niajoi
did not know what it wanted.
did know; an issuo was never more
clear cut than now. It was tho ques
tion of ropresontativo government
vs. personal government of the
right of tho majoiity to rule. This
was not a principle invented b3' tho
Eoform party. It had boon develop
ed by Groat Britain, tho mother of
Liberty, with blood and iron through
a thousand years of struggle and
suffering. Hawaiians have inherited
these rights so easily that they did
not know what it was to fight for
them. If Hawaiians had had to fight
for their rights instead of receiving
thorn as a present, they would not
talk in the prosonco of a great, plain
principle, about "personal jealousy"
and "scrambling for office." TI103
don't know what thoy aro talking
about. Aftor forty years only the
Hawaiians have reached a position
which it took England a thousand
years to win. Forty years ago the
monarch was absolute horo. Ka
mehameha V. could send a Legisla
ture home and put forth a Con
stitution resting on his own will
alono, and tho whole country sub
mitted to it. Would wo stand
that kind of thing to-day, gontlo
men? Nol and yet that was onhy
a few years ago in 18G5. Yet
tho country put up with it thon.
Tho common peoplo wore afraid of
tho chiefs, and tho monarchy was
practically absolute. Only six short
years ago, in 1886, what was tho situ
ation? We had a king who put
Cabinots in and put them out with
out caring a snap of tho finger what
the Legislature said about it. Ho
usually chose his Ministers at mid
night. He kicked thorn out aftor a
vote of want of confidence had fail
ed, and kept them in after tho
House had voted them out. It was
called a constitutional monarch'. It
Wcis a constitutional farco. That
was personal rule as opposed to ro-
, prosentativo rule. Tho king was
practically absolute as far as tho
Cabinet was concerned. If by any
moans the peoplo elected anybody
to represent them, thoy wore faced
by 2-i Nobles who represented only
the king. You might talk yourself
deaf, dumb and blind, and you could
not move the Nobles. Was that re
presentative government? Nr' It
was personal government ot
most aosoiuto Kinu. i'ow countr. 3
on this broad earth have made more
rapid progress in political liberty
than wo. Only in 188G tho king had an
absolute veto. His "No" outwoighted
48 votes. Now a bill can bo carried
over his head. Oflico holders have
been banished from tho House. Wo
have advanced so far that now in
stead of a Cabinot trembling boforo
tho King, wo have ouo which is over
his head, v hogo advico ho is bound
to take, and which can bo only put
out of oflico by vote of 23 of tho
elected members of the House. Somo
day, I do not know wlion it will be,
but some day, as suroly as tho sun
rises and sots, tho peoplo will rule
absolutely in this country, and wo
won't have any monarch. I don't
believe the couutry is ready for that
to-day. It may not bo roadj; next
year, nor for many yoars, but tho day
must como, for it is tho tendency of
the whole world. Tho timo when
the monarch can rido roughshod
over the necks of tho people has for
ever gone by. To bring this down
R' to the orosont moment, tho thirtv-
sthroo signers of tho resolution pre
sented to Her Majesty supported
tho principle of representative
against personal government. Somo
of them had no courage, and have
gone back. Wo don't care if they
have. Tho rest of us will stand to
our convictions, and if wo aro beaten
wo will go down with tho Hag Hying.
Tho porson who wroto Her Majesty's
reply made a bungling straddle, but
I believe in accepting it as an ac
ceptance by Hor Majesty in good
faith of the principle that tho major
ity of the Legislature shall bo con
sulted in pickiug out tho Cabinot.
We have modo this advance, Lot us
Hot go back. He did not wish to bo
ruled by King Macfarlano nivy more
than by Queon Liliuoknlani. Thoro
scorned to be some fatal bias, some
deadly miciobo bias in this Houso
when tho quo-t'on nf makinga Oabi-J
not was concerned. When Noblo ,
Neumann was olfrvod a Cabinet posi
tion ho forgot all wnro of self-respect,
his position as a legislator and
Ins duties to hiscollonguo- and with
out eon speaking to his own faction
he turned up smiling one morning
as a Minister. No boo biued louder 1
in tho hive limn than Noble Macfar
lano. Nothing would silisfy him
but tho gor.t 'cnip of his late com
panion, and he had it. Although !
Jlr, iNouinnnn was ins irienti, 111s
boon companion, his political asso
ciate, ho must bo taught a lesson.
Then tho lion, member said the
National Kuform Patty had boon
making a draft mulo of him and ho
didn't propose to stand it and thoy
had a sort of monkey and parrot
time of it. But two short weeks
passed, and tho same thing happen
ed to the gonial member Troiii Hono
lulu (Mnofarlano). Ho didn't con
sult his faction nor his friends but
climbed tho fence between Saturdaj
night and Monday morning, and
turned up whore his whilom friend
had done, in tho Cabinot. Now Mr.
President, tho lest of us stand just
whore wo did w lion our two friends J
desoited us. But when wo presume
to insist on what wo all insisted on
then, they have nothing to answer
but tho shriek malice! annexation!
wish for ollicot and now tho Attor-noy-Goneral
weops it is not fair not
to give us a ehanco. I toll you,
gentlemen, when you have a rotten
egg thoro is no uso to sot it for throo
weoks under a hen to seo if it will
hatch. No, gentlemen; tho situa
tion is plain aim simple, and tno is
sue is clear cut. Tho question is
whether tho Cabinot is to bo select
ed in accordance with Constitutional
principles or by irresponsible per
sons? If tho principles was good
when wo signed that paper, it is
good now. If it was worth lighting
for thon, it is worth fighting for now.
If it was sound thon, it is sound
now. I do not propose to go back
on it, no matter who leaves it, and I
will fight for it until, so help mo
God, it becomes tho governing prin
ciplo of this country. It has been
said that tho moinbor from tho third
district and myself aro now together
like lambs. I wish to say I don't
get into bod with anybody, but if ho
or any other moinbor falls in lino on
this principlo I am glad to moot
them. You natives should not bo
guided by personal regard for tho
Minister of Foreign Affairs, I j-iold
to no 0110 in that. But if you got up
and say 3011 will not support repre
sentative government against per
sonal government, you will bo aban
doning tho rights of your constitu
ents. You must make a stand for
principlo. Tho Marshal had said to
him that it was rumored if this reso
lution did not pass its supporters
would uso force. That was not true.
Thoy would uso nothing but consti
tutional and legal moans and if thoy
did not succeed -in enforcing tho
principlo now, thoy would wait until
tho' could do so.
Noblo Peterson said thoro wore a
number of others who wished to
speak and ho would therefore move
(at 5:20) a recess till 7:30 p. m. Carried.
