Rep. Smith presented a roport from
tho special committee having con
sideration or tho resolution for a
commission to visit Washington,
D. C. lie presented tho following
Tho commit tee to whom were re
ferred, (1) (ho resolution to pay
$200,000 in Hawaiian Government
bonds to tho corporation (hat shall
lirst complete an inter-oceanic canal
at Panama or through Nicaragua;
(2), (ho resolution to seo if it is ad
vantageous for this Kingdom to
combine with foreign countries or
corporations proposing to lay an
inter-ocean cable joining with these
islands, and (.'!), (he petition from
Ewa, Onliu, praying that Pearl Har
bor bo leased, beg to roport as fol
lows: Your committee havo held several
meetings, of which public notico
was given, and havo given full con
sideration to the matters referred to
Tho proposal to aid tho Nicaragua
Canal b3 joining the United States
to some limited extent in guarantee
ing the bonds of the Canal Com
pany would meet tho hearty recom
mendation of your committee if tho
present state of national finances
justified so doing. As it is, your
committee can only express its linn
conviction that the completion of
tho proposed canal will inure to tho
great benefit of Hawaii; toalegrco
which is not easy to exaggerate. The
world's commerce moves largely on
eastward and westward lines, so that
tho Hawaiian group will become,
when this canal is in operation, a
great central depot or distributing
point, as well as calling place for
vessels cros.sing tho Pacific ocean.
This view is forcibly expressed by
Hon. .1. M. Horner, in the appended
statement of his remarks made be
fore the committee.
Your committee recommend that
the Minister of Foreign Ail'airs bo
requested to inform the United
States Government of the extreme
interest taken by Her Maje.-ty's Gov
ernment in tho completion of the
Nicaragua Canal, and tho desire of
Her Majesty's Government to do
anything within its power to facili
tate its operations.
In regard to a Pacific ocean cable,
as well as the Nicaragua Canal and
Pearl Harbor questions, your com
niittco heard tho remarks of Messrs.
Hartwell, Marques and .1. M. Hor
ner, which are lieieto appended. It
appears to be clear (ha! no cable be
tween Hawaii and the North Ameri
can coast will pay commercially at
the present time, u"' ss connected
with an Australian , and hence
that no cable company is likely to
lay and operate it, iiuloas heavily
Your commit tee learn thai a plan
is now under consideration to obtain
a complete system of Pacific ocean
cables, radiating from Honolulu to
California or Mritish Columbia, to
Yokohama and to Auckland, by tho
co-operation of the English, Gor
man, United Stales, loissian, Japa
nese and Chinese Governments, and
that there is considerable hope that
such co-operation will soon bo ob
tained. Tho Act of 181)0 authorized
tho Government to contract for a
cable to be laid not later than Jan
uary 1, ISill, with a subsidy of .?2."i
0(X) a year for fifteen years. Under
that Act a contract was niado with
Mr. Hartwell, who has given much
time and ell'ort to its accomplish
ment, and who has shown to your
coinniittee the estimates of cost of a
cable made on full specifications by
several of tho largest cable construc
tion companies and the correspon
dence between himself and tho
United States Government.
If a cable bo laid during tho lime
limited by tho above Act, no one can
doubt tho immense benefit which
would result (herefrom to this
ami we reeomniemi mm iiio most
earnest ell'orts bo made to encourage
the laying of such a cable; and if
private parties cannot undertake it,
that (ho matter be laid before the
United Stales Government and every
moans bo exhausted in trying to in
duce that Government to take such
steps as will accomplish the object,
But tho question which appears lo
your committee to bo of the most
immediate and vital concern to Ha
waii, is the matter of commercial re
lations with the United States.
The United States is our markel;
(he market in which almost all of
our produce is sold, and from which
the bulk of our imports come. The
present Tieaty relations are not
.satisfactory, I lie United States tariff
on certain clas-es of products is ex-rc.-.Mve
and well nigh prohibitive.
If all restrictions uoie removed
ami all of our products admitted in
to (he United Slates free ol dut., i!
would lie of incalculable benefit' lo
us. It is impossible to estimate (he
extent of our undeveloped resources;
hitherto our main dopondonco has
been upon sugar and rice, nud nil
other agricultural interests havo lan
guished. Undor free trndo with tho United
States those who would roceivo tho
first and tho groatost benefit would
be those having lit t lo or no capital,
for t hero would then bo an oppor
tunity for them to engage in indus
tries within their moans and with a
fair prospect of profit.
The temporary loss of revenue to
this Government undor a free trade
treaty would ho insignificant as com
pared to the national benefits that
would be gained, and in a very brief
period the gain in revenue from
other sources would far exceed tho
Vo believe that with a free trado
treaty and cablo communication
withthe United States, theso islands
will attain a degree of prosperity
never bofore experienced.
The present treaty of reciprocity
with the initou btalos win oxpiro i
wit luu two years anil unless renewed
wo will lose even that benefit, and
steps of some kind will have to bo
Wo therefore believe it of vital im
portance that every effort should bo
made and without delay, to establish
theso closer commercial relations
with the United States, and if tho
United States require, in return,
that they receive a lease of Pearl
Harbor weshould bo prepared to
grant the lease.
But perhaps before giving legis
lative authority to tho Government
to negotiate such an important mat
ter, more information ought to be
obtained, showing prociselj what
advantages can bo secured. Your
coinniittee, therefore, recommend
that a committee of this House, to
consist of three members, bo author
ized to obtain such information, and I
ascertain what course the United
States Government or Congress
would bo inclined to take, and to re- i
port to this Legislature at an ad
journed session, if the information
shall, in tho opinion of Her Majesty's
Government, bo sufficiently impor
tant to call together the .Legislature.
Members of tho United States Con
gress do not, as your coinniittee be
lieve, consider it proper for diplomatic-
representatives of foreign na
tions to interview them, or urge up
on them views on international sub
jects, and yet they are ready to con
verse freely with such a delegation
as was recently sont to the United
States by somo'of the South Amer
ican countries and tho result of tho
Pan-American conference was soon
in tho treaties shortly afterwards
In like manner a delegation from
tho Hawaiian Legislature, when in
troduced in Washington by tho Ha
waiian Minister .Resident there, may
obtain a full, although informal, in
terchange of views on tho subjects
of tho treaty, tho cable and Pearl
Harbor, tho result of which would
be that this body would then know
to what extent it may bo advisable
to authorize Her Majesty's Govern
ment to negotiate.
From Mr. Marques' remarks be
fore (ho coinniittee, it appears that
in his opinion the views of other
countries as well as, if not before tho
United States, should bo ascertained
concerning 1'earl Harbor. Further
.steps may bo proper, if tho United
States shall not indicate a desire to
give Hawaii full reciprocal benefits
for a naval station and harbor in tho
Pearl River lagoon; but vour com
mittee recommend that tho, United
States shall first be given an oppor
tunity to show whether or not it is
ready to act in tho premises in a
way which shall bo satisfactory to
Your committee do not, however,
recommend that any conference on
this subject bo sought at Washing
ton or London, Merlin or St. Peters
burg, unless some intimation be first
given in behalf of tho United States,
English, German or Russian Govern
ments (hat such conference would
be acceptable. With this limitation
on the power of tho legislative com
mittee herein recommended to ask
conferences abroad, your committee
urge its appointment, and are confi
dent that important results will fol

Resolved: That, in view of tho

States of America, a committee of
the Hawaiian Legislature, consisting
of Hon. L. A. Thurston, R. W. Wil
cox, J. Xa.vahi, J. K. losepa and J.
11. Waipuilnni, bo appointed to pro
ceed to Washington to obtain in
formation as to the terms upon
which closer commercial relations,
mutually advantageous to tho two i
countries, could probably bo estab
lished between tho Government of
tho United States and tho Hawaiian
Kingdom, and report the result to
this Legislature at an adjourned or
special session, if tho information
shall in tho opinion of Hor Majesty's
Government bo sufficiently import
ant to call together the Legislature:
That the appointment of said
coinniittee bo certified by the Presi
dent and attested by the Secretary
of this House; and i
That the sum of five thousand '
