for mo to say a few words relative to

interests which tho United States
has in the Hawaiian problem. In
September, 1881), I first saw the Ha
waiian Island!) those beautiful em
eralds in tho North Pacific sea. I
had not been long in Honolulu when
I perceived how thoroughly an Am
erican city it is, how strong is Am
erican sympathy and how predomi
nating are American interests in all
tho islands of tho American group.
More than one year of careful study
of tho existing complex facts I found
necessary to a correct understand
ing of the moral, commercial and
political state of tho islands. Though
1 had had much previous experience
and observation among tho nations
of three continents, 1 found a condi
tion of things in Honolulu unlike
that I had eor known at any other
national capital. I found an intelli
gent body of citizeiiF, of European
and American origin, sharing the

stiiiiiorting a buim-baruariu nioii-arohj-,
resting on no holid or normal
foundation, dead in everything but
its vices, coar.soly luxurious in iU
tastes and wishes, constantly send
ing out impure exhalations, and
spreading soeial and political de
moralization throughout tho islauds.
This semi - heathen and grossly spu
rious government mechanism, called
the Hawaiian monarchy, was being
chieily supported by tho taxes and
toleration of those who could hao,
no sincere loyalty to it, and who
knew that it returned to tho islands
nothing for tho money it annually
squautlereu on worse than useless
expenditures. That such a barbaric
and absurd counterfeit in tho name
of government and law was so long
endured, is a striking proof of the
self-control and forbearance of tho
responsible citi.ens of Hawaii. Suf
fice it to buy, that such an abomina
tion in tho name of go eminent, or
for any other pretence or purpose,
would not be allowed to exist sixty
days in any of our American cities.
Only very exceptional circumstances
caused the responsible citizens and
principal taxpayers of the islands so
long to maintain this dead and
worbo than useless monarchy. Ouo
year's careful observation ol tho ex
isting state of things brought me to
the firm belief that it could not
long continue. Tho death of Kala
kaua and tho accession of his sister
to the little throne revealed many
facts and circumstances which show
ed how utterly vicious and demoral
izing tho monarchy had become.
i3au as hau been the courtiers anil
favorite companions and advisors of
this semi-barbaric king, those whom
his sister Liliuokalam immediately
drew around her wore still worse.
The death of her brother followed
by that of her lawful husband, did
not prevent her from appointing to
tho chief executive ollice of tho isl
ands the Tahitiau half-white, who
had sustained scandalous relations
to Iter and whom she now installed
in her palace, though he had a law
fully married wife, and her chamber
lain, paid out ol the government
treasury, was always at his post to
discharge palace duties. Even this
astounding exhibition of sluiino aud
tho low character of her white re
tainers and conliilants, the Ha
waiian public endured without inert.

Tho biennial Legislature lissom

soon asserted its constitutional pre

that had consented to tho maladmin

moral favorite at thu palace, who
exercised dictatorial powers and
rioted in ollictal police corruption.
Instead of appointing Ministers pos
sessing the confidence of the legis
lative majority aud of the business
men of the islauds she continued to
select those of hur own type of char
acter, those whom slut Uuuw would
retain her illicit palace favorite iu
power. Tiircu successive Ministries
of this description were voted out
by tho Legislature, with tho warm
approval of all tho bust men of the
islauds. At last thu Queen appeared

Bnfoly carry tho country through
the following eighteen mouths to
tho election aud assemblage of the
next Legislature. Fully sharing
this belief thu United States Minis
tor and naval commander loft Hono
lulu Jan. 1 in tho U. S. cruisor Bos
ton for Hilo and tho Volcano, tho
distance of nearly three hundred
miles. It was tho first time for
many mouths I had felt it safo for
tho United States Minister and naval
cominandor to bo away from tho
Hawaiian capital. Wo wore ahBont
ton days. W hen wo arrived iu tho
harbor of Honolulu on our return
from Hilo in tho foronoon of Jan.
11 there came to us tho startling
news that tho Queon and tho ring of
white adventurers who surrounded
her had by intriguo aud bribory car
ried tho lottery and opium bills
tli rough tho Legislature, had
forced out tho Wilcox aud Jones
Ministry, had appointed in their
places four of her palace re
tainers, two of whom tho Legis
lature and tho responsible public
had recently aud repeatedly re
jected, headed by tho man who had
carried tho lottery and opium bills
through tho Legislature. In spito
of numerous petitions aud protests
from all tho islands, both of whitos
aud nativo Hawaiiaus, and the earn
est remonstrance of tho Chamber of
Connnorco and tho principal finan
cial men of tho country, the Queen
immediately siguod tho iniquitous
bills. Both she and tho ring of ad
venturers who surrounded her ex
pected thus to get tho money to
carry on the government by making
Honolulu a fortress of gamblers and
semi-pirates amid the ocean from
which thoy could by every mail
steamor to tho United States send
out the poisoned billets of chance
by which to rob tho American peo
ple of their millions of money, a
method ol gaining silver and gold
as wicked and audacious as that of
the freebooters who ouco established
themselves in tho West Indian Seas
and mado piratical forays on Ameri
can commerce. But oven this was
not enough for the semi-barbaric
Queon and tho clique of adventurers
round her. To fortify themselves
in their schemes of usurpation and
robbery, thoy must have a now con
stitution. They wore afraid the
Supreme Court would decide their
lottery bill unconstitutional. Tho
Supremo Court must bo reconstruct
ed so that tho Queen could reap
point the judges and give the
final appeal to tho Queen herself.
Tho now constitution was to bo pro
claimed iu a way that tho oxistiug
constitution expressly prohibits. Her
four now Ministers woro iu tho plot.
While tho Boston was coming into
the harbor of Honolulu on the fore
noon ol January 14 tho moo ol
hoodlums at tho call of tho Queen
and her retainers wore gathering iu
the palaco grounds. Thu Legislature
was prorogued at 12 a. m., tho re
volutionary edict of Hawaii's mis
guided sovereign was ready to be
proclaimed, rumors of which woro
alieady in the public ear. Thu storm
of public indignation began to
gather. A few minutes boforo the
appointed hour for the coup d'etat,
immediately after 1113- reaching tho
Legation lrom the Boston, 1 was
urged to go at once to tho English
Minister to ask him to accompany
1110 to tho Queen aud try to dissuade
nor lrom her revolutionary design.
1 promptly sought to comply with
this request, went immediately to
the English Minister, who was ready
to co-oporato with 1110 if there woro
any possibility of oll'ecting any good.
Wo wont immediately to tho Foreign
Ollice to seek access to tho Queen iu
thu customary manner. The hour
of proroguing tho Legislature had ar
rived. Tho ceremony concluded, tho
Queen wont immediately to the
l'aloce, around which the mob was
gathering. It wa3 too lato for tho
American and English Ministers
ovon to attempt to reason with tho
maddened, misguided woman, who
had already launched tho revolution
which could not bo arrested, though
hor cowardly Ministers of tho lottery
gang became alarmed and drew back.
She scorned thoir cowardice and
pushed on to hor doom. Saturday
night told every intelligent man in
Honolulu that tho Hawaiian mon
archy was forever at au oud that
tho responsible persons of tho isl
ands, the property holdorn mid the
friends of law and order must there
after take charge of public affairs.
The great mass meeting of Jan. lti
worthy of tho best American towns
of the best American days was hold,
ll was made up of thu best and chief
men of tho country, tho ownors of
property, tho prolossional and edu
cated citizens, morchauts, bankers,
clerks, mechanics, teachers, clergy
men. This assemblage was a unit m
opinion aud purpose. It was stirred
by a common sentiment, tho love of
country and tho desire for public
order and public security. It took
its measures wisolr and tirudentlv.
Its committee of public safety asked
us to laud tho men of the Boston
lest riot and incendiarism might
burst out in thu night, for no relia
ble police forco longer oxistod, aud
whatever there was of this force was
now iu tho control of tho usurpers and
lottery gamblers who had initiated
tho revolution. Under tho diploma
tic and naval rules, which woro aud
are imporativo, tho Uuilod States
Minister aud naval commander would
have Hliuiutiiiillj ignored thoir duty
had thoy not lauded tho men of thu
Boston for thosootirity of American
lifo and property and tho niaiuten
