The luteat joko Is a story of a visit
of Sam Parker to Mr. Blount. 8am
is said to have asked the commission
er to rcstbro the queen to tho tlirono
under nn American protectorate,
whereupon tho commissioner exolaim
ed: "A queen tinder nn Amorioun
protectorate I" Tableau.
Annexation clubs havu been started
and many natives are joining. More
than half tho voting population of
tins island alono is already enrolled.
Air. Davies is a very good man. He
believes tho Biblo right through, even
that text which roads, "Though hand
join in hand, tho wicked shall not go
unpunished ;" but lie makes ono ex
ception to this, just to prove tho rule,
and that exception is in favor of
royalty. "Tho king can do no wrong"
is tho chief 'irticle in Mr. Davies
creed. You or I would bo ostracised
for a titlio of tho wickedness of which
tho ex-quccu is guilty, but in her it ib
merely the cccentricily of royalty.
I should not say that oxactly, cither,
for Mr. Davies is not anxious for tho
lcstflralion of tho qucon, but for the
establishment of hor niece on tho
broken down throne of Hawaii. This
is only a proof of my first statement
as to liis adoration of royalty. You see
Mr. Davies dearly loves position. To
be known as a favorite advisor of tho
queen would be balm to heal all
wounds, past, present and future, for
him. In England ho is only an in
telligent, and perhaps, obsequious
tradesman. In Hawaii, with Kaiulani
as queen, he would expect to be tho

Thero aro a very few Americans
here who do not favor annexation.
They aro men born herb of American
parents. As a general thing often
they and their families aro especially
friendly with the ex-queen, and have
beeu so from youth. I don't believe
thero are more than half a dozen of
them in the whole group. My per
sonal knowledge embraces less than
that number. These people claim as
their excuse that they aro Hawaiians.
I wonder if to bo bom of American
parents in Constantinople would
make a man a Turk. The Ethiopian
born in America does not change his
skin. Nor does the leopard born in
the Nuw York Zoological Garden
change his spots and become tho
American wildcat, at least nn such
taanisformation has ever been an
nounced to the public. Therefore tho
curious attitude of these American
sons and daughters is astonishing to
most of us. It is oven the source of a
largo amount of fun for tho commun
ity. That a man in America should
oppose annexation is nothing surpris
ing at all, but it is a little surprising
that a man born and brought up here,
and seeing the trend of things for the
last 25 years, should bo unable to see
that for the jreneral betterment of the
Hawaiian people this is tho best
thing that could como to them,
considering the m.ittor from that one
point alone, with improved business
conditions. We would have more
funds and more industrial schools
could bo provided, where tho mental,
moral and physical life would bo for
the uplifting of the Hawaiian youth.
This single item, ono would think,
would have an iniiuonce on tiiese

Honolulu, April 8, 1893.
Tho China is in from the Orient
and sails to-morrow at. 10 a. m. I
send you just a few lines in addition
to my last letter, though it has been
so quiet for sever, ul days that wo be
gin to sigh for something to happen.
We have been living at such high
pressure of late that we feel as if
Othello were out of a job in these
The Alameda came in yesterday
and left for the colonies at 2 o'clock
this morning. She brough no special
news for Hawaii. Commissioner
Castle, of the annexation committee,
returned, also Paul Neumann, tho ex
queen's envoy, with "Prince" David
and Ed. Macfarlanc. Paul says he
brought tho ex-queen "no assurances."
Tho gold lace in which the ex-royalty
indulged on this occasion was aston
ishing. Tho state coach, with driver
and footmen in livory, was called out
and went to tho O. S. 8. wharf to meet
the conquering heroes. A crowd of
natives congregated in front of
"Washington Place," the ex-qucen's
private residence, making a stir which
was quite distracting to the school
children next door, at Funuhou Pre
paratory School. There were the
usual number of rumors of restoration
(lying ubout, but tho day wore away
without accident or incident.
Mr. Harold Sewall, ex-consul to
bunion, was a passenger by tho Ala
meda, and thero is a report that ho
was bearor of special dispatches to
Piesident Dole, but I have uot hoard
I send you a clip from tho Hawaii
an Star, a new evening paper, pub
lished in Honolulu in tho interests of
annexation. This shows tho Japaneso
attitude Evidontly tho Japanese
yams had moro in thorn than many
people behoved at first. Tho figures
in this article aro wrong, in ono in
stance at least, for tho Hawaiians
nunibur about 45,000 by tho last cen
sus, so tho Japs cannot claim the
right to "bo dominant," and thoy aro
not tho "most important olemont in
these islands," though they doubtless
consider thoinsolves so. To say that
a Japanese is us conceited us a Ha
waiian, may bo sovoro, but it is cer
tainly true. Nay, 1 helicvo thut ho is
more conceited than tho pure Hawai
ian, hut nock and neck with the lntlf

Not a littlo amusement was earned
by the publication in tho local papers
of an account of tho discovery of a

Tho Now York World and Horald
havo both sent correspondents by
tho Alameda. W. P. Bowon for tho
World und Oiias. Nordholt for tho
Herald. Both papers have been, so
far, anti-annexation. Nordhoir wns

children. Ho is accompanied now by
his daughter. Probably if Clevola.id

port of two such poworful journals, so
he is Blow about expressing himself

In tho meanwhilo poor Hawaii is
kopt in a stato of wretched uncertain
ty, which, of course, has a bad in
fluence on business, but the people
of Hawaii will have fine opportunity
to practice the grace of patience.
Alas I they havo been practicing a

1 hope you did not think my re
marks on industrial schools in my
last letter were intended as a convinc
ing argument in favor of annexation.
I was only joking a little with tho
handful of anti-annexation Ameri
cans, who call themselves Hawaiians
and claim so much affection for tho
Hawaiian race. It seems strango to
most of us that they cannot nee that
it is the best thing for the natives.
Wo don't want u sugar bounty, nor
have wo asked anything of the kind.
Tho revolution was not the action
of tho sugar planters as I have said
before, tho only sugar planter at the
mass meeting throw cold water on it
at that time, though he has since
come to feel in sympathy with the
provisional government and favors
annexation even if it stops contract
labor, and gives no bounty.
