Frannisco Uhrontclo of Nov. 11 has
four columns of news ou tho Presi
dent's probable policy in rogard to
A Washington despatch of Nov.
10 says that a letter of Secretary
Gresham to tho President, dated
October 18, concerning Hawaiian
affairs, has been given out for publi
cation, hi it he takes the grouud
t hat tho marines landed from tho
United States steamer Boston at the
time of tho revolution were not
landed to protect life and property,
but to aid in overthrowing the exist
ing Government. Their very pres
ence, ho says, implies coercive meas
ures against it. He refers to the
"full aud impartial reports submit
ted by James H. Blouut," as estab
lishing tho facts ho proceeds to re
late. Secretary Gresham briefly men
tions tho attempt of the Queen to
proclaim a new constitution on Jan.
11. Then: "At a mooting hi Hono
lulu late in the afternoon of that day
a so-called committee of, public
safety, consisting of thirteen men,
being all, or nearly all, present, and
a majority of whom, including five
Americans, were aliens, was appoint
ed to consider the situation and de
vise ways ami means for the main
tenance of public peace and the
protection of life and property."
The Secretary tolls of the deter
mination of this committee, on the
15th or early on tho Kith, to form a
Provisional Government "to exist
until tho terms of union with tho
United States of America have been
negotiated and agreed upon," and
then of tho mass-meeting, "com
posed largely of aliens," where tho
Queen and hor supporters were de
nounced. "Later the same afternoon
the committee addressed a letter to
.John L. Stevens, the Atnoricau Minis
ter at Honolulu, stating that tho live
aud property of the people were in
peril, ana appealing to him and to
the United States forces at his com
mand for assistance. Hits commu
nication concluded: 'We auk unaulk
TO PBOTKCT Ol'ltsELVKS WITHOUT AID, AND
TIIKKCFORK lIOt'K FOIt TI1K IMtOTIXTION OK
the United States i-ohces.' "
Mr. Stevens complies with tho re
quest, asking Cant. Wiltse to send a
force from t ho Boston for the pro
tection of the U. S. Legation and
Consulato "and to secure the safety
of Amoricau life and property." The
letter proceeds: "Well-armed troops
wore promptly lauded and marched
throuL'h tho ouiet streets of Hono
lulu with two Gatling guns to the
public hall previously secured by
Air. Stevens for their accommoda
tion. This hall was just across the
street from the Government build
ing, aud in plain view of tho Queen's
"Tho reason for thus locating tho
military will presently appear. The
Governor of tho island immediately
addressed to Mr. Stevens a commu
nication protesting against the nut
as an unwarranted invasion of Ha
waiian soil, ami reminding him that
the proper authorities had never
denied permission to the naval forces
of the United Slates to land for
drill or any other proper purpose.
"About the same time the Queen's
Minister of Foreign Affairs sent a
note to Mr. .Stevens asking wny ino
troous had been landed, and inform
ing him that the proper authorities
were able ami willing to afford full
protection to the American Legation
and all American interests in llono-
"Only himihi replies weio sent to
"There wore no manifestations of
excitement or dim in in the city, and
the people were ignorant of the con
templated movement. The commit
tee entered the Government build
ing, utter 11 rut ascertaining that il
was unguardeii; and one of their I
number, a citizen of the L'nited
States, read a proclamation declar
ing the existing Government over
thrown and tho 'royisioual Govern
ment established in its place, to
exist until tho terms of union with
the United States of America, have
been negotiated upon. No audience
was present when the proclamation
rwas roau. out uunug rue reauiug
forty or fifty mon, some of thorn in
differently armed, entered the room.
"Tho executive and advisory coun
cils mentioned in the proclamation
at once addressed a communication
to Mr. Stevens, informing him that
tho monarchy had been abrogated
aud a Provisional Government estab
lished. This communication con
cluded: 'Such Provisional Govern
ment has been proclaimed, is now in
possession of the Government de
partmental building, archives and
tiuasury, aud is in control of the
city. We hereby request (bat you
will, on behalf of the United States
of America, recognize it as the ex
isting do facto Government of the
Hawaiian Islands, and afford to it the
moral support of your Government,
aud, if necessary, the support of
American troops to assist in preserv
ing public peace.
"On receipt of this lottor Mr. Stev
ens immediately recognized the uow
Government aud, in a note address
ed to Sauford B. Dole, its President,
informed him that he had done so.
"Mr. Dolo replied to Minister
"I acknowledge the recoipt of your
valued communication of this day,
recognizing tne Hawaiian i ro
visional Government, aud express
deep appreciation of the same. Wo
nave coulerreu with the Ministers ot
the late 'Government, aud have
made a demand upon tho Marshal
to surrender the Station house. We
are not yet actually in possession of
the station house," but as night is
approaching and our forces may be
msumcieut to maintom order, we
request the immediate support of
the United States forces, and would
request that tho commander of the
United States forces take command
of our military forces, so that the'
may act together for tho protection
of the city.
"Tho station was occupied by a
well-armed force uuder the com
mand of a resolute, capable officer
The-same afternoon tho Queou, her
Ministers, the representatives of the
Provisional Government, and others
held a conference at the Palace.
Refusing to recognize the now
authority or surrouder to it, ahu was
informed that tho Provisional Gov
ernment had the support of the
American Minister, and if necessary
it would be maintained by tho mili
tary force of the United btatos then
presont; that auy demonstration on
her part would precipitate a conllict
with that force; that she could not,
with hope of success, engage in war
with tho United States, and that re
sistance would result in the useless
sacriGce of life."
Secretary Gresham goes on to re
late the advice of S. M. Damon to
the. Queen to surrender under pro
test, aud her compliance with that
advice, quotiug tho protest of the
Queen, in which slio said she yield
ed to "the superior force of the
United States of America, whoso
Minister Plenipotentiary, his excel
lency, John L. Stevens, has caused
tho United States troops to be land
ed at Honolulu, aud declared that
he would support the Provisional
President Dolo endorsed on tho
Queen's protest, "Kecoived from tho
hands of the late Cabinet this tho
17th day of January, 189.1," the
Secretary of State says, "without
challenging the truth of any of its
assertions. Indeed, it was not
claimed on January 17th or for some
time thereafter by any of tho desig
nated officers of the Provisional
Government, or auy annexationist,
that the Queen surrendered other
wise than as stated in her protest."
After relating what Mr. Stevens
reported of the surrender, and what
Secretary Foster in turn transmitted
to the President, Mr. Gresham goes
'"Special commissioners wore sont
to Washington by the Provisional
Government to negotiate a treaty of
annexation. Their statements are
utterly at variance with the evidence,
documentary or oral, contained in
Mr. Blount's report. They are con
tradicted by the declarations and
letters of President Dole and other
annexationists, and by Mr. Stevens'
verbal admissions to Mr. Blouut.
Tho Provisional Government was
recognized when it had little other
than a paper existence, and when
tho legitimate Government was in
full possession aud control of the
Palace, tho barracks and the police
station. Mr. Stevens' well-known
hostility aud the force landed from
the Boston was all then that eoitod
apprehension in the minds of the
Queen, her officers and loyal supporters.
"It is fair' to say that Secretary
Foster's statement was based upon
the information which ho had re
ceived from Mr. Stevens aud the
special commissioners, but 1 am un
able to see how they wore deceived.
The troops were lauded, not to pro
tect American life and properly,
but to aid in overthrowing tne ex
isting Government, Their very
presence implied coercive measures
against it In the statement
given to Mr. Illount by Ad
miral Skerrett, ranking naval
officer at Honolulu, he says; "If
the troops were lauded simp!) .'o
protect American citizens' interests,
they were badly Htatiouud in the
hall, but i( it wus. o did tho Provi
sional Government they were wisely
"Tho hall was so situated that the
troops in it easily commanded tho
Government building, and the pro
clamation was read under tho throat
of American guns. 1 understand
that during the movement, if not at
the beginning, that Mr. Stevens pro
mised the annexationists that, as
soon as they obtained possession of
the Government building and read
the proclamation above referred to,
he would at once recognize them as
the ile facto Government and sup
port them by landing the troops of
the warships then in the harbor, and
he kept that promise.
"This assurance was the inspira
tion of the Government, aud with-'
out il the annexationists would not
have exposed themselves to the con
soquoueo of failure. They relied
upon other force, for their own they
had none worthy of that name.
After the Provisional Government
was established by the action of tho
American Minister, and by the pre
sence of tho troops lauded from tho
Boston, its continued existence was
due to the belief that should an
effort bo made to overthrow it, it
would oucounter the armed force ot
"The earnest appeals to tho Am
erican Minister for military protec
tion by tho officers of the Provi
sional Government after it had been
advanced, shows the utter absurdity
of the claim that it was established
b' the successful revolution of tho
people. Those appeals were the
coufossion by the men who made
them of their weakness and timidity.,
Courageous men, conscious of the
strength anil nguteotisuoss ol tuoir
cause, do not thus act.
"It is now claimed that tho major
ity of the people who have the right
of voting under tho Constitution of
1887 have never favored the idea of
annexation to this or any other gov
ernment. Mr. Blouut slates that
while at Honolulu ho did not meet
a single annexationist who expressed
a willingness to submit tho question
to a vote of tho people, nor did he
meet with one favoring that subject
who did not insist that if the isluudb
were annexed suffrage should bo so
restricted as to give complete con
trol to the foiieiuneks. whites ami
representatives of tho annexation
ists. "Tho Government of Hawaii sur-
roudered its authority under the
threat of war, until such time as the
Government of tho United Slates,
upon tho lacts being presented lo il,
should reinstate the constitutional
sovoroign, aud tho Provisional Gov
ernment was created, 'to exist uutil
tho terms of union with the United
States of America have been negoti
ated aud agreed upou.' A careful
consideration of the facts will, C
think, convince any one that the
treaty which was withdrawn from
the Senate for further consideration
should not be resubmitted for ac
tion. "Should not the great wrong done
a feeble, independent state by au
abuse of tho authority of the United
States be undone by restoring tho
legitimate GovornmontT Anything
short of that will not, I respectfully
submit, satisfy tho demauds of jus
"Can the United Slates consist
ently insist that other nations shall
respect tho independence of Hawaii
while not respecting it themselves?
Our Government was the first to re
cognize the independence of the isl
ands aud should be the last to as
sume sovereignty over them by
force and fraud.
"V. Q. Gresham.'
The Chronicle's telegrams from
Washington say the Democrats are
blue over the declaration of the Ad
ministration's Hawaiian policy. On
the other hand, thu lteptiblieaus are
described as being jubilant.
Ex-President atlarrisoii did not
want, to comment on Presideut
Cleveland's acts. He thinks if the
reported stop was known before the
Ohio election, MelCinloy would haye
got all the votes. It wus his opiuion
the Queen could not resume her
throne without bloodshed. Unless,
however, his administration was at
tacked he should have nothing to
say to thu public.
SPECIAL ENVOY ALEXANDER.
Prof. W. D. Alexander, special 1.
G. envoy to Washington, said: This
is a great blow to us if this policy is
carried out, It means the bank
ruptcy aud ruin of the islands. If
the attempt is made to restore
Queen Liliuokalani bloodshed will
result. I doubt if the Queen herself
would live to sit again upou the
Ho goes on to say that the pooplo

of 1887, which thu Queen tried to

Professor remarks on the recognition
of the P. G. by the l S. Govern

United Stales Government to nunox
