Honolulu, April 12, via San Fiun
cisco, April la, 1893. Thoro is a
rumor brought down by atoamor yes
terday that Col. Blount is to bo hast

to make his formal report to Presi
If tliis truo it is of great importance)
that before Mr. Blount dupartB tho
President should sond down thoro as
ministor eomo one who will thorough
ly ropresunt the views of tho adminis

ministor, has been and will continue

do no good and may help to serious
His continued presence here as

couragement to the hopes of tho plan
ter annexationists and a blow at their
Tho native people and those foreign
ers who sympathize with them, though
everything is quiet here, understand
that tho material exists for serious
trouble. This the provisional govern
ment peoplu feel. They were uneasy
at the possible rcsultB of Col. Blount's
withdrawal of troops, as unhappy as
the Southern carpet baggers when
Gen. Grant refused troops or when
Mr. Hayes withdrew them entirely,
but tho queen's party are quiet.
They wait for tho President's action
and are content to wait,, because Col.
Blount has held an entirely even hand
between the contending sides. If ho
should be summoned home before Mr.
Stevens is replaced by a minister rep
resenting and informed of Mr. Cleve
land's views and wishes, that would
alter the situation materially.
The Japanese have not yet taken
possession of these islands. The Bri
tish lion is not seen to wag his dread
ful tail. Col. Blount has not forcibly
restored the queon, and everything is
quiet, even tho discussions between
those who want annexation and thoso
who do not.
Of these discussions there are many
and in one at which I assisted by re
quest a singular and, I believe, hither
to uiimcntioned fact came out. Be
ing urgently pressed for my opinion
of recent events, I felt free to say to
two influential and eminently respect
able, though not ofliciul, members of
the planters' party : "We in America
have not the least objection to your
revolution if you do it yourselves.
What we dislike is that you got U. S.
tioops to help you, and made your
selves the rulers of the islands. Then
you began to cry for annexation, and
hastened to Washington to got us to
take off your hands what was just
then your stolen property.
"You were not a de facto govern
ment, for a do facto government
ought to stand on ils own legs, and
that you didn't do. That is why your
movement was regarded in the United
States by most people with contempt."
You may imagine my surprise when
those gentlemen exclaimed : "Oh,
but you don't understand what was
our situation. We have to promise
annexation. If we hadn't done that we
couldn't have got 20 men to join in
our movement. It would have been
an entire failure if we.hadn't held to
the promibc made of a prospect of
"But," I asked, "did you have any
promise from the U. S. government
which authorized you to hook this
bait to induce people to join you in a
revolutionary act, who otlieiwiBe, as
you tell me, wouldn't have done so?"
They owned that they had no such
promise; they hadn't even consulted
the . Washington government on the
There are countries where a cuns
piiacy which begins by deluding and
bwindling its own followers would be
called a fraud. Certainly this sugar
planters' revolution, in spite of the
fact that m my of its leaders are res
pectable and unliable members of so
ciety, cannot itself claim respect
when, without praetit-ing a gross de
ceit, "it could not have got a follow
ing of 20 men."
I huve found two or three men who
would not object to one independent
republic, but a icpublic is not in favor
with the planters, wiio do not want to
govern, but to use some outsido force
to keep down the natives, and the
Chinese and Japs and Portuguese as
well. Finally I have had the benefit
of a long converhiition with one of the
most intelligent, and, on the whole,
mnest man in this movement, 'though
not a member of the provisional
"If annexation doesn't come, a I
don't believe it will, what do you
gentlemen really propose?" I asked.
"I don't know, because wo have not
got bo far yet," ho replied. "But I
heo nothing for it myself except tho
formation of a small and strong olig
archy. That would secure peace and
order, unu is what wo want."
"That Btrikcs me, on the whole, as
the most sensible of all tho proposi
tions T have so far heard of." You
will obbcrva, of courso, that nono of
thoso suggestions look to a free popu
lar government. None of them are
of a kind which would bo a benefit or
blessing to us to have as part of us.
If tho -10,000 nativo population
wouldn't make such citizens as the
United States would bo benefited by,
if the 10,000 Ohineeo, tho l.'I.OOO Jups,
oven the 8500 Portuguese, would not
bo model American citizens cither, in
viow of what thoy desire, would tho
Americans, English and Geinians
represented in tho planters' govern
ment bo a valuable addition to us?
When President Cleveland or con
gress refuses annexation, in my belief
tho ablest men of the planters' side
will set to work upon tho "oligarcliy"
my friend spoke of, the rulo of u few
strict and probably not unjust men,
for injustice would have evil conse
quences. Such a form of government left in
dependent and free to net by an agree
ment of the great powers to neutral
ize these inlands as the Suez Canal Is
neutralized and as u canal iioiohh the
American isthmus would bu neutral
ized might do well. It might even he
tho best possible for such a mongrel
population as hub been gathered to
gether by tho acts of sugar planters.
For tho prcfront, ho'wover, thoy will
talk only of annexation.
Why should wo of tho United States
burden ourselves with tho posses-ion
and tho government and tho defense
of thoso far-away island? Tho only
answer is because tho stockholders on
about G5 sugar plantations want a
chanco to make more monoy, being
rich already, and do not want tho
troublo of justly ruling tho people
among whom thoy have chosen to
settle themselves and to whom, whilo
they did rule, and thon added, by im
portation, to government expense,
thousands of Chinese, Japanese and
Of course, thoy are playing for what
they believe to bo a great game and
in good years, and almost all tho years
wcro good under tho treaty until the
McKinloy bill camo to spoil all.
In good years theso lucky planters
made from 20 to GO and 80 p. c. per
annum clear profit in their invest
ment. I mean that the most favor
ably situated mado between GO and
80 p. c, tho least favorably placed
and managed 20 p. c. They hud un
der tho treaty and our sugar duties an
advantage of about 2 cents per pound
over their competitors in every part
of the world, and they have the rich
est sugar lands on the planet. They
aro not doing so well now and it is
not probable thoy will do so well

An IngeniouB Trick.
"Of all the humiliating positions
that I was over in," said a well-known
New England clergyman to a Journal
man, "by far tho worst happened
whou I was a young man and an
usher in a large city church.
"Vesper services were hold every
Sunday evening, and tho church was
almost always crowded. There woro
living in the city at that time two
girls, acquaintances of mine, who,
for some slight inattention on my
part, had seen fit to take no notice
of mo whou wo mot on tho streot.
This gave mo no worry, however,
and so thoy devised another plan to
"Ono Sabbath evening, as tho con
gregation was gathering for tho ser
vice and tho great church was about
two-thirds full, those two girls outor
od. I asked them very politely if
thoy would like a seat when one of
them spoke up and said that they
wished to sit in the second or third
seat from tho front. So, I started
grandly off down the aisle, feeling
about twice life size. I went straight
to the next to tho front pew and,
laying my hand on tho back of it, as
is customary with ushers, I bowed
low and looked up tho aisle to see
the girls, whom 1 supposed were
coming. Imagine my surprise on
seeing that they woro not in tho
aisle at all! If over wanted the
earth to open and swallow mo up it
"But no such friondly catastrophe
occurred, and thon I realized that I
must walk back in tho face of all
thoso people, of whom nearly all
were tittering. I got up tho aisle
some way, only to find that tho two
girls had quietly droppod into a
back seat as soon as I had started.
They laughed in thoir handkerchiefs
all tno rest of tho evening, and I fell
several degrees in my own estima
tion." llostoii Journal.
