THURSDAY, DEC. 28, 1893.
Minister Thurston boforo leaving
Washiugtou to eotno homo nnd start
another rovolutiou as tho news in
tho American papers is filed a pro
tost with tho Stato Department
against tho assumption of jurisdic
tion by tho United States ovor Ha
waiian affairs. After heralding tho
document for sororal days, tho Ad
vertiser reproduces it this morning
as covoriug "tho wholo caso of tho
Govorumont from tho legal point of
viow, leaving not a single point un
touched, nor an objection unaus
worod." From such an introduction
ouo would oxpoct to find a very
powerful document. And it 'does
rovoal a poworful oxpondituro of
effort, but tho effect it loaves nftor
porusal is weak as water. This may
bo judged ovon without reading it
from tho following profatory remark
in tho Advertiser: ""It is not in
tended as a statomont of tho Gov
ernment's entire caso, and purposely
avoids outoring into any disputed
issuos of fact, but is confined to tho
legal side of the caso which it covers
Upon which lot us remark at tho
outset, how convenient would it not
bo for any lawyer, in arguing a caso
beforo our Supromo Court, if ho
could push all tho facts into tho
background, and contend for a deci
sion in favor of his client on tho
strength of bald assertions that such
client was in the right and refused
to abide by auy adverse decision.
However, Mr. Thurston, in spite of
his waivor of all issues of disputed
facts, sails right into a sea of that
element. In submitting that "tho
Government of tho United States
has acquired no jurisdiction ovor the
independent foreign stato of Ha
waii," ho says, "thero is no claim
made that tho sovereignty of Ha
waii is subordinato to that of tho
United States by reason of conquest,
nor has it been surrendered by
. This is one placo whero Mr. Thurs
ton flattens his nose against a hard
fact, though a disputed ono by his
side. It is and has been from tho
first distinctly claimedjthat tho con
stitutional government of Hawaii
was subverted through an act of
war committed by United States
forces under authority of tho United
States representative. Tho Queen
made such a claim in her protest.
President Clevoland has just now,
in his mossago on tho Hawaiian
quostiou, admitted tho claim and
endorsed its validity after investiga
tion. Even tho Provisional Govern
ment formally submitted to tho act
of conquest when, on tho first day
of February, it withdrew its Portu
guese guards from tho Government
building and surrendered its own
protection to the forces of the
United States, while at tho same time
tho senior naval commandor of tho
United States then present hoisted
the flag of his country over the capi
tol, and tho Amorican Minister pro
claimed a protectorato of his Gov
ernment ovor tho Hawaiian Islands.
"When tho United States flag was
lowered and tho United States gar
rison returned to ship, by order of
Commissioner Blount clothed with
paramount authority by tho United
States Executive, thero was no re
scinding of the protectorate in ques
tion. Indeed, it was boasted pub
licly, on tho part of tho Provisional
Government, shortly afterward that
Mr. Blount had said tho protoctor-
ato was not abolished. Commis
sioner Blount's mission itsolf was an
assertion of jurisdiction hero by the
Government whoso credentials ho
boro to tho Provisional Government.
Members of tho Provisional Govern
ment waited upon him either volun
tarily or at his request to lay thoir
caso boforo him. It now transpires
that tho main object of his mission
was to ascertain if there really had
been a conquest of Hawaiian sover
eignty by the United States, and tho
result of his investigation is now
known to bo a conclusion that such
a conquest had been made. This
fact of the naturo of Mr, Blount's
mission disposes of Mr. Thurston's
plea that tho Provisional Govern
ment is not bound by tho Commis
sioner's investigation. Tho Provi
sional Government doos not appear
to havo boon in it oxcopt incident
ally, although it ib true that tho
Provisional Govornmont tacitly be
came parties to tho investigation,
not only by not protesting against
it, but by taking ovory possiblo ad-
vantago of it to present its own caso
to tho United States Govornmont.
Mr. Thurston seems to givo away
his wholo caso, in his much vaunted
briof, when ho iu conclusion Btutn
blos into facta as follows: "
bo far from boiug in any inanuor
hostilo, tho Provisional Government
and ita supporters havo dotnoimtrut
od by thoir acts that thoy aro not
only frioudly in Iho ordinory accept
ance of tho word, but that thoy havo
such faith iu tho Govornmont of tho
United Status that thoy havo taken
up arms and riBkud thoir lives and
.'property to placo thomsolvos, olmost
unrosorvedly and unconditionally,
undor tho jurisdiction and control
of that Govornmont, asking only in
roturn that thoy may sharo in tho
froodom of its flag and tho stability
and equality of its govornmont."

Regular Gonornl Session of tho Exo

Tho gonoral session of tho Execu
tive and Advisory Councils was
oponod at 1:85 this afternoon, Presi
dent Dolo in tho chnlrj with whom
woro present: Vice-President Hatch,
Ministers King, Damon and Smith;
Councillors Wilder, Allen, Wator

Executive's roply to tho United
Stato Minister's request for surren
der to tho Quoou. It was voted that
tho traveling expenses of Mr. Thurs
ton, Minister to Washington, should
bo paid both ways. Tho executive
business was not noted.
Minister Damon prosoutod, as a
petition, a recommendation by Min
ister Thurston of aid to tho Hawai
ian section of tho Midwinter Fair,
which was to bo managed by a com
pany formed in Honolulu. It was
road by tho Secretary, showing' that
tho aid desired was tho loan of in
teresting objocts belonging to tho
Owing to political objections, tho
letter of Mr. Thurston said, tho Ha
waiian baud had not been engaged,
and, if tho Government band was
given leave of absence, tho company
would pay its traveling and living
Minister Smith favored Giving tho
assistance of tho Government to tho
plan. Regarding tho matter of a
baud, a baud of natives would cor-
laniiy attract anuuwuu, uuu n tno
band as now composed wont it would
only be a matter of leave of absonco.
Tho cyclorauia owned by private
parties had drawn much attoution
Mr. Young favored tho loan of
objects to tho exhibition company,
but would oppose sending a baud
On motion the matter was referred
to a special committee, which the
President named as follows: Tenney,
Enuneluth and Nott.
Mr. Emmeluth moved that tho
committee bo authorized to expend
not more than $100. He believed
tho money would bo well spent.
Mr. Young opposed any expendi
ture of money for the company.
The motion carried.
Mr. Emmeluth presented the re
port of tho special committee on
the reorganization of tho Board of
Education. It dealt with tho reve
nues, school supplies, teachers' sala
ries and manner of engagement,
normal school instruction, composi
tion of tho Board as to ecclesiastics
and women, etc. Tho report had
attached to it an expert's findings,
which were to the effect that tho
system of keeping accounts was
antiquated and unsuitable. Fault
was also found with the methods of
purchasing supplies. The Secretary
was not wholly responsible, as the
system was a legacy to him.
" The report criticized the want of
system and of equality in tho en
gaging of toachors and tho fixing of
salaries. Teachers appeared to bo
paid according to individualism, and
tho conclusion was that either some
were paid too high or others too
low. Mention was made of tho
normal instruction given in natioual
teachers' conventions, which had
been dropped on account of the ex
pense of sending teachers to and
from Honolulu. Prof. Scott was
conducting a normal class of twenty
pupils with good results.
Mr. Atkinson was highly com
mended for his zealous and effective
work as Inspector-General, but the
duties wore too great for one man
Recommendations were made ac
cording to the findings. It was be
lieved that normal instruction
should be established on the differ
ent islands., Tho committee was in
favor of a proportion of women on
the Board, of not more than half,
and for extending the prohibition
of ecclesiastics to, all" tho members.
A number of members should retire
ovory year, to bo replaced by new
ones. All tho present members
should resign to make way for tho
changes, ltwas recommended that
an assistant inspector should be ap
pointed. Tho bonds of the Board
should bo cancelled and the pro
ceeds placed to its credit in tho gen
Minister Smith moved that tho
report bo accepted and a copy fur
nished to each member, so that tho
difforout propositions should re
ceive full consideration. Carried.

Mr. Hatch prosented tho report of
tho Judiciary Comraittoo on tho

Mr. Watorhouso moved a resolu
tion for tho appointment of a com
mittee to consider tho advisability
of having an appraiser appointod to
the Customs bureau. Carriod. Tho
President appointod Messrs. Allen,
Watorhouso aud Bolto as tho com
mittee. Mr. Emmeluth said nothing had
boon hoard from tho newspaper
committoo. There was a sedition
act on the statutes, and he wanted
cithor to soo that law wiped out or
elso tho newspaper Holomua bo
suppressed. Ho had got his bolly
ful of that dirty sheet. Ho moved
that tho Attorney-Gonoral bo autho
rized to take proceedings against
tho managers of tho Holomua for
its utterances of the past few weeks.
Mr. Brown did not think it advis
able to take general proceedings.
It would bo enough to take action
on individual complaints.
Mr. Emmeluth would not care if
it was only tho local influence of tho
dirty sheet, but it wont abroad to
show that such insulting matter
could be uttered undor tho very
noses of tho Provisional Govern
ment. Mr. Hatch thought difforently
from tho last speaker. Tho Holo
mua was one of tho leading advo
cates of royalty, and showed people
abroad the class of persons support
ing that cause. It was doing the
Provisional Government a good ser
vice. Mr. Emtnoluth wanted to know, if
tho legal lights ("laughter of tho
Council were indifferent to tho Ho
lomua, what was the purpose of the
Mr. Tenney said if tho Holomua
called him a pot-bellied, pigeontood
monstrosity it wouldn't disturb him
Ministor Smith was not indifferent
to tho complaint. Tho Holomua
could not be allowed to go boyond a
There being no socondor to the
motion, the matter dropped.
A motion to adjourn was made.
Mr. Emmeluth said that a few
wooks ago tho Minister of Finance
sot the paco for dismissals of royal
ists from office. He would like to
know what was being done in other
departments. If restoration took
place within six months, thero was
no doubt that every friend of annex
ation would bo dismissed from office.
In looking over the books of tho
Kuokoa native annexation paper
with a view to suspending its publi
cation, he had not found that any
Government employee in that build
ing contributed ono fifty cents a
month to tho support of the paper.
Ministor Smith said tho matter
had not boon lost sight of, but ac
tion was dolayod by the illness of
Mr. Brown considered it was un
wise to disturb tho civil sorvice
whilo their affairs wero in tho hands
of the United Statos Congress.
Mr. immeluth said that was the
story over since March 1. When
Mr. Blount came it was said it
might hurt tho Government to
mako changos. If tho Interior Of
fice had been cleaned out thou, it
would present an appearance now
thoy might bo proud of, instead of
ono that thoy woro ashamed of.
Mr. Watorhouse agreed with Mr.
Emmeluth. Govornmont employ
ees woro making bets for restora
tion, and bets had been paid within
a few days.
Ministor Smith contondod that
much had been done, and instanced
tho complete chango iu the Firo De
partment. Still ho did not dosiro
tho work to ceaso.

Agreeably with fall in the
price of sugar we have import
ed a number of small, low
priced silver pieces admirably
adapted to the wants of people
who wish to make handsome,
at the same time inexpensive
presents. These goods com
prise, Knife Rests, Salts and
Peppers, small Breakfast Cas
tors, sets of Individual Butters
with Knives, Tilting Pitchers,
Salad Bowls in hammered sil
ver, Nut Cracks, Drinking

Cocktail and Lemonade Mix
ers. These articles make a
beautiful showing and are very
cheap. For holiday gifts noth
ing will be appreciated more
by the recipient.
Another word about lamps:
Last year, about Christmas
time, we received three very
pretty little lamps which may
have been intended for night
lamps or for sewing by, they
were good enough for any
purpose for which lamps are
used and handsome enough
to be used as ornaments. We
kept them twenty minutes.
This year we imported a half
dozen more and unless the
taste of the public has changed
they won't remain with us very
long. The designs are rather
handsomer than those of last
year and the price a shade
lower; the times demand it
and we're up with the times,
often a few days ahead.
To come down to the actual
every day necessities of life
but which are suitable for
Christmas gifts what's the
matter with a filter? A few
weeks ago "Punch" published
a cartoon illustrating a man
and woman debating the sub
ject of hard times at this sea
son, and the husband's inabil
ity to make suitable Christmas
gifts. " It's hard times we're
having, Peggy, and I'll agree
no to make you a Christmas
gift if you'll no make me one."
As the money would all
have to come out of the hus
band's pocket he made a
double saving by the opera
tion. To those men who wish
to follow, not too closely, the
plan suggested by Punch's
cartoon we would advise the
purchase of some article like a
set of Haviland China, a Filter
or a Range which would be of
service to all the family. We
have the articles and we feel
certain we can give the public
