Jean Jnssont Rives.
I would nsk iormisiiou for snac
to reply to Mrs. Elizabeth Kokaa
ninu Laanui Pratt's lotter in your
irsuo of .Yoslordajr. But boforo no
ticing lior comuiunication, it may bo
as well to ruoall the substance of thu
previous lettors which hao appeared
in your papur relative to Mous.
lu the obituary notice of Mrs. V.
K. K. Toltuan published in tbu Bul
lktin of .Sept. 27th, it was stated
that "Mrs. T.'s father was the late
Jean .lasiu Heevos, commonly
known .is Father John of the Catho
lic Mission, who wont to England
with Kamehamoha 11." This piece
of intelligence that Reeves or Kives,
was a priest of the Catholic Mission
aud at the samo timo tho father of
Mrs. Tolman, was such au untruth
and also such au insult to the Catho
lic church, that L deemed it neces
sary to point out tho falsity of the
statement. My letter of 28th ulto.
confined itself to proving tho absur
dity of tho story that Hives was a
Catholic priest. Apart from cor
recting this error on tho part of the
Bulletin, 1 had no desiro to rake up
tho historv or antecedents of Hives.
Later ou, however, "llaioiaio,"' w ho
evidently poses as an authority on
tho subject, came forward aud in a
column of bail grammar endeavored
to put mo right. "Haioiaio" care
fully avoided all reference as to
whether Hivb was a Catholic priest
or not, but in one part of tho letter
referred me to Alexander's History p.
IS 1-5 for tho statement that Hives
went to England as Kamehameha
ll.'s private sooretar3 Seeing that
i'rof. Alexander in his history said
nothing of the kind, 1 informed
'Haioiaio" that what Alexander did
say was to the effect that Kives
smuggled himself ou board the ves
sel and got a job as interpreter aud
was subsequently dismissed on ar
rival at Loudon for gross miscon
duct. It is with no wish to cause pain
to Mrs. Pratt or to intrude on that
lady's affairs, that 1 pursue the sub
ject further. Hives, however, figured
so prominently at a certain t-tago of
Hawaiian history and his actions
have been criticized so often in vari
ous works on tho Hawaiian Islands,
that I feel justified in replying to
Mrs. Pratt's letter.
Koforring to Hives' name, Mrs.
Pratt sajs her grandfather's name
was Jassont Hives and uot .loan Jas
, sin Hives. It may be so. "Haioiaio,"
on the other hand, speaks of him as
Jean Jassin. Bingham, who was a
contemporary and knew Hives per
sonally, calls him John (Bingham's
Hist. "p. 112). Jarves styles him
John (Jarves Hist. p. KXJj. Hufus
Anderson has him down as John (.H.
Anderson's Hist. p. 1)0). In the An
nual .Report of H. C. Wyllie. Minis
ter of 1'oreign Relations tor lool,
ho is termed Jean B. Hives. Prof.
Alexander in his History pages 175
aud 20(1 names him Jean. Mrs.
Pratt mentions what she calls au
"important error" which would indi
cate that Arago of the Lranie must
have obtained his information about
Hives at second-hand, vi.., that the
very name of Hives, is incorrectly
written by Arago. Arago in his
work makes no mistake whatever
but mentions liiin simply as Mons.
Hive.s. It will bo thus admitted, I
think, that whatever Hives' proper
name happened to have been, he
was known on thee islands as Jean
Mrs. Pratt says Hives lauded ou
the islands about 1810, "Haioiaio"
that he came hero about 1807. Thus
authorities again differ.
Mrs. Pratt says that Rives was in
strumental in inducing Boki and Ka
lanimoku to receive tho rite of
Christian baptism through tho chap
lain ol the Urauie, ana that this cir-
cumstauce has led certain historians
(Protestant presumably) to look at
rtiim "through a glass darkly." Un
derneath, it room can be fouuu for
it, 1 givo au extract from Arago's
work to show what a follow country
man aud a co-religionist who wns
present at said baptism thought
About the incident of Rives'
smuggling ou boaid L'Aiglo with
Liholilio and his retinue, just as
that vessel was leaving the harbor,
and his subsequent conduct, I sub
join a few extracts from various
standard writers: Bingham's Hist,
ii. 201 "On board the am vessel
(L'Aiglo) tho Ki ouch man, J Rives,
took a secret passage.
Jarvos Hist., p. KM: -"The King
(Liholilio) though friendly was con
siderably influenced by vicious
whiten in his tram, who foresaw that
as knowledge increased, their im
portance and occupations would
cease. The principal of these intri
guers was Johu Hive.s, a low French
man, who filled the offices of cook,
boot-black, secretary and boon com
panion, as the inclination oi the
King permited. While preparations
for sailing were being made, Rives,
the Frenchman, endeavored to per
suade his royal master to permit
him to join the train. Not wishing
to disgrace his retinue by such au
appendage, ho refused, but Rives
managed tocouvin himself aboard
b.v stealth, and after the vosxol was
underway, Imggagele.ss as he was,
contrived to secure permission to re
main. Thu motives which occasioned
the lefimal of Captain Starbuok to
allow thu passage of Mr, Ellis were
soon apparent, Tho King had placed
on board &2o,(00 in Hpooio to pay his
expenses; the regulating of which
