Tho natural result of tbo condi
tions I havo doscribinl was tho( rapid
Krowth of distrust and suspicion on
tho part of tho nntivos towards tho
foroiguors. tho latter sooininjj to fool
that, as thoy had boon boru uudor
tho Hawaiian flag, or had bocomo
naturalised oiti7.eus, Uioy could
speak freoly for tho Hawaiians, ovon
to tho oxtout of advocating tho
transfer of their territory to anothor
flag. Tho foreigners (though thoro
havo boon many exceptions) havo
thus been nlavhur with 11 ro for all
theso years, aud the natives havo had
to listen to continuous suggestions
that tho advance of commorco re
quired and justified tho partial or
total surronuor of Hawaiian soil.
Thoro wore not wanting advouturors
who fanned vigorously tho Hawaiian
distrust, and thus procured for
themselves the votes aud favour of
tho easily duped natives.
In 1874 King Luualilo, who,
although a vory dissipated man, had
been strongly uudor what is called
missionary influence, died without
leaving a direct hoir, and thoro was
a fierce contest for tho succession
between Quoon Emma, whom tho
natives loved and trusted, and Ka
lakaua, who was not much trusted
by any one, though many thought
thoy would bo ablo to steer him for
thoir own bonofit. Tho foreign,
especially tho American, inlluouco
wont strongly for Kalakaua, and ho
becamo sovereign, and bitterly his
supporters havo since regretted it.
Tho chasm bocamo wider and wider,
and Kalakaua seemed to help both
sides; lie encouraged those who tam-
Eered with annexation, and ho allied
imself with those who strove to
develop race hatred.
Tu 1887 tho misrulo and corrupt
practices of Kalakaua forced tho
people, tho natives joining tho
foroiguors, to rise and insist that ho
should either abdicate or adopt a
now Constitution greatly limiting
tho King's power and increasing that
of tho foreigners. The King bowed
to tho inevitable, aud tho foreigners
prepared a Constitution which tho
King accepted without amendment.
Nevertheless, tho Ministers and tho
Privy Councillors and tho legislators
gonorally gave themselves a free
hand in discussing, in tho press and
elsewhere, tho desirability or neces
sity of coding a harbour or other
privileges, in return for the un
doubted advantages which tho
United States could grant. Thoy
wore not only oblivious, but ap
parently utterly unconscious, of the
fact that tho Hawaiian loved his
country far more than ho would love
anything they could oiler him in its
place, and thoy wondered that thoy
failed to retain tho love aud con
lideuco of the Hawaiians.
Two years ago Kalakaua diod and
was succeeded b- his sister, Queen
Liliuokalaui. It was soon evident
that tho feud of races was to be
maintained. Tho blindness of the
foreigners gonorally to tho growing
alarm and suspicion amongst tho
natives, who heard their nationality
aud independence treated as of little
moment, is more surprising than tho
alarm and suspicion which resulted
from theso discussions. Soon after
her ascension I had an interview
with tho Queen, in which she re
ferred vory sadly to tho ovidont
docay of tho Hawaiian race, aud
When our race is gone I do not want
any other flag to bo placed here, but I
wish the great nations would agreo to
gether that theso islands should always
be kept neuteral and under tho Hawaiian
That is tho old-fashioned amor
patritv which has belonged to evory
race, but which has been so griev
ously left out of tho account by
many of the white men who havo
otherwise beon tho best friends of
Early in 1891 tho McKinloy Tariff
struck a heavy blow at Hawaiian
trade, and tho income of tho sugar
planters was reduced by a million
sterling per annum. This meant
ruin to many, and tho cry for relief,
whether by cession of harbour, or
by annexation, or by any other
means, was loud and strong. A year
ago ouo ex-Cabinet Minister and
tuembor of tho Legislature, bearing
tho blood and uamo of ouo of tho
early missionaries, went to Washing
ton, aud secretly eonforred with
officials thoro as to tho terms upon
wnicn mo united states would an
nex Hawaii. It is bolioved that the
replies were such as to show that
tho United States would not con
sider any offer of annexation unless
it were legitimately mado with tho
consent of tho Hawaiian people.
Tho soil-appointed envoy thereupon
returned to Hawaii, and rosumod his
soat as a party leader in tho Legisla
In tho face of such untrusty ad
visors ii is, poruaps, not to uo won
dered at that tho Queen fell back
more and more upon tho couusols of
her own people, and of such white
mon, some true aud somo falso, as
stood loyally for tho iutegrity of tho
national domain; and the men who
drove hor to such counsellors are
not free from responsibility for tho
By a series of political intrigues
tho Queen precipitated the disaster
of tho 12lh of January, and tho
foroiguors onco more rose in tho
interests of luw and ordor. Unques
tionably tho Queon had attempted
to violate tho Constitution which
hlio had sworn to uphold, and the
attempt justified tho people's re
sistance. A Provisional Government
was formed, without consultation
with tho natives, and thoy declared
tho Queen deposed, tho monarchy
nbrogutod, and themselves the
Government, and to protect thom
bolvos as a government thoy invited
tho United States forces to occupy
tho town. The position of the Pro
visional Government was very em
barnibbing. 1 do not boliovo that

compelled them, hut thoy wore not

tho romaindor comprising C37 Ameri
cans, 505 English, 882 Germans,
2,091 Portugvoso (chiefly lnbourors),
and various other nationalities.
Boforo oithor foroiguors or natives
on tho islands gonorally had hoard
of tho revolution, a stoamor was
chartered, aud fivo Commissioners
(four Atnoricaus and ono English
man, without n drop of Hawaiian
blood in thoir veins) sot out for
Washington to offer tho islands to
tho United States Government. All
tho Commissioners havo sworn
allogianco to tho Hawaiian Constitu
tion, and Mr. Thurston, tho chief of
tho Commission, is tho gentleman
who last year paid tho secret visit to
Washington to sound for annexa
tion. Thoy do not protond to have,
or to bo ablo to obtain, tho voto of
tho Hawaiians in favour of thoir
mission; and when ono trios to think
what would bofall a Bolgian, or a
Bulgarian, or ovon an Egyptian, who
ombnrkod on such an orraud, ouo
bogins to realize tho namo by which
such envoi's would in ordinary
language bo described. Somo apolo
gists try to draw an analogy botweon
tho Hawaiians and other Polynesian
or Indian peoples, aud arguo that
tho domanus of civilisation require
that tho white raco should movo tho
othor out of tho liuo. But thoro is
no analogy, because Christendom
has stamped its recognition of in
dependence on the Hawaiian nation.
It is concoivablo that somo foreign
Power (but not an Anglo-Saxon)
should commit an aggressivo attack
on Hawaii; it is conceivable that tho
United States should resist any at
tempt of anothor Powor to soizo
Hawaii; but it is almost incoucoiv
ablo that a company of good citizons
should havo come in defiance of
their oath, aud of tho electorate-nil o
which thoy wore admitted to seek to
induce tho United States to take
over an unwilling people. It is not
my business nor my purpose to
enquire what may havo been tho
offence of the Queon: I only main
tain that this can bo no remedy; for
if this bo not treason I do not 'know
what is treason, and if this bo treason
1 know of no greater crime.
Tho suddenness with which the
whole question broke upon tho
United States Govornmont and
people prevented a clear apprehen
sion of tho circumstauces which are
now becoming known, and tho
course which President Cleveland
has initiated appears to bo tho plain
and honourable course for a states
man to pursue. Tho President has
despatched Mr. Blount as a special
envoy, to examine for himself the
natives aud foreigners throughout
tho islands, aud upon Mr. Blount's
report will depend tho future action
of the Washington Govornmont. By
this moans tho truth will bo known,
and it will probably bo ascertained
that on ono sido thore havo been infat
uation and obstinacy, and on tho sido
of tho loaders of the revolution an
entire want of consideration and of
thought for tho Hawaiians. As an
-iustauco of this want of considera
tion, I quote the following lines
from an articlo in tho North American
Jleview for March, from tho pun of
Mr. ljorrm A. J. hurst on, wno is
described as 'ox-Premior of Hawaii
and chairman of tho Annexation
American property interests in Hawaii
have become so great that it is no longer
a simple question of political advantage
to tho United States, or of charity or
justico to a weak neighbor, which the
authorities at Washington havo to deal
with; but it is a question involving the
fortunes of thousands of their own flesh
and blood, and millions of dollars worth
of their own property.
Colder-blooded advico was surely
never given by any statesman speak
ing for his native or for his adopted
country; and it is not to such advico
that tho American Govornmont or
people will give oar.
Tho accuracy of this view is fully
confirmed by tho more recently cabled
reports, which show that Mr. Blount
has already ordered tho restoration
of tho Hawaiian ilag aud tho with
drawal of tho United Stales forcos,
poudiug the investigation which it
is his mission to pursue.
Tho recent visit of Princess Kaiu
laui to Washington was undertaken
in ordor that hor own rights of
succession and tho unconstitutional
procedure of tho Annexation Com
missioners might bo kuown to tho
United States authorities and people.
Tho visit could havo no olliciul
character, but tho sympathy which
it evoked makes it clear that tho
American nation will sanction no
step that is not founded iu justico
Mr. Thomas Batto, editor of tho
Graphic, Toxarkana, Arkansas, bus
found what ho believes to bo tho
best remedy in existence for the llux.
His exporionco is well worth remem
