Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But Ettablithed for the Benefitof All.
THURSDAY, JAN. 1, 1891.
Puck, in nn nrliclo reprinted from
its spicy page9 to-day, gets neatly
to the collar of tho venomous par
tiian papers of tlio Republican
party, for their too previous attacks
on President Cleveland on the
ground of what they only guessed
was to be his line of action in Ha
waii, but what events proved was
not in his mind at all.
REPLY OF PRESIDENT SOLE.
President Dole's reply to tho
United Statos Qovorumoul's requost
for tho relinquishment of power by
tho Provisional Government to tho
Quoen is publishod by tho Adver
tiser. It occupies a little moro thau
100 inches of brovier typo in lougth.
As it had already bcou known that
tho answer was a refusal, there is up
news iu tho reply. Its liistory, argu
ment, and declarations of iutontious
of tho Provisional Government con
tain nothing that tho public has
not grown tired of reading and hear
ing for the past oleveu months.
Disappointment is expressed at tho
detenniuation of tho united btates
Administration not to again submit
tho treaty of annexation to Con
gress. At tho same timo it is de
clared that tho Provisional' Govern
ment will continue tho project of
political union with tho United
Statos as a conspicuous fealuro of
its foroign policy. Then tho Prosi
dontoutwrs into ajong argument
against tho right of 'tho United
Statos Government to interforo with
tho internal affaire of Hawaii. Ho
denios that tho Provisional Govern
ment had ovor submitted tho ques
tion of its right to exist against tho
claim of tho Quoon to tho arbitra
tion of tho United Statos, and claims
that tho mutually friendly recep
tions of Ministers iroin each olhor
by tho different couutrios confirm
and establishes tho recognition by
" tho United Statos of thb Provisional
Government's sovoroign authority iu
and ovor tho Hawaiian Islands. Tho
proved advico of Mr. Damon, now n
roombor of tho Executive, while a
member of tho Advisory Council,
givon to tho Quoon that sho surren
der uuder protest is ropudiatod by
the President as novor having boon
reported to tho Provisional Govern
ment and in no way binding upon
it. Mr. Dole, howovor, quotes tho
lottor of protest by tho Queen to
President Harrison, and tho formal
protest of the Queou and her Cabi
net made whon, "yielding to tho su
perior forco of tho Unitod States of
America," sho declared:
Now to avoid any collision of arm
nd forces and perhaps tho loss of
life. 1 do under this protest and im
pelled by said force, yield my nuth
I ority until such timo as tho Govern
ment of tho Cnited States shall, up
on tho facts being iirosouted to it,
undo tho'aution of ittt representative
and reinstate mo in tho authority
which r claim as tho constitutional
xovordlgn of tho Hawaiian islands.
President Dolo informs Minister
Willis that tho Provisional Govern
ment had never roceived any oflicinl
information of President Cleveland's
claim to interfere iu tho iutoruul
affairs of this rouulry until such had
boon presented by himself on Do
uamhor U, and not until tho publi
cation of Mr. Qresbam'ri letter to
the President of tho United States
on tho Hawaiian question had they
any reliablo intimation of such a
policy. This statement of very
cloudy relations botweeu tho two
Goverumouts is hardly a suitable
buttress to tho provious argumout
of Mr. Dole that tho Unitod States
Government had unreservedly con
coded tho sovoroign authority of tho
Provisional Government. Tho facts
related rather hIiow that nothing
moro than its recognition as a do
fncto government was desired for
the time being to bo accorded to
the Provisional Government by the
Unitod States Government. Mr. Dolo
goes on to attack tho investigation
and report of Mr. Blouut iu a innu
ner familiar to readers of the auuox
atiou press. Ho then claims that if
it were true that tho Amoricau forces
illegally assisted tho revolutionists
in tho establishment of tho Provi
sional Government, that Govern
ment was not responsible for their
wrong-doing. This is just about tho
position President C'levelaud takes.
Ho holds tho Amoricau Government
responsible aud therefore bound iu
all honor to repair tho wrong. Tho
remaindor of tho reply, up to tho
conclusion, is a historical argument
of tho rightfulness of tho revolu
tion, much of tho same nature as
Minister Thurston's protest made at
Having informed Minister Willis
"that tho Provisional Goverumoutof
tho Hawaiian Islands respectfully
and unhesitating by docliues to en
tertain tho proposition of tho Presi
dent, of tho, United States that it
should 'Surrender its authority to
tho ox-queen," President Dolo concludes;
This answer is mado not only upon
tho grounds hereinbefore sot forth,
but upon our sonso of duty aud
loyalty to tho bravo men whoso
commission wo hold, who havo faith
fully stood by us in tho hour of trial
and whoso will is tho only earthly
authority wo recognize. Wo cannot
betray tho sacred trust they limo
placed in our hands, a trust which
represents the cause of Christian
civilization iu tho interests of tho
whole people of these islands.
This assumption of tho few to re
present tho interests of tho many,
by virtue of position secured by out
side force and maintained by mer
cenary force, will hardly commend
itself to American ideas of govern
ment by tho people themselves. The
reference to Christian chilizalion
may suggest to the Amoricau Gov
eminent as a Scotch paper at our
baud in effect suggests a rather
oxtensixo field at homo for tho ap
plication of tho doctrine of force.
Besides soothing corruption, glaring
social infamies and gross supersti
tion iu their cities, tho Americans
have u widespread reign of lynch
law aud n -.caudalous prevalence of
Iraiu robbories, which may as well
bo attended to before assuming to
wield tho Mohammodau like sword
of tho Lord intho Hawaiian Island",
which nt tho worst of thoir political
confusion wore nblo to present ono
of tho most peaceful and orderly
communities iu tho world under
conditions of mixed population not
tho most favorable.

ho should do his bost to fulfil tho

A motion to cast a single ballot

a few minutes firoviously, had not
taken tho proidmg sent.
Minister Smith introduced an act
to create tho position of Minister of

The same Ministor moved that

Mr. Emmeliith did not see any
need of deferring action. Tho mat
ter could nt lwil bo discussed. It
had hung lire long enough.
Mr. Young said a very good rea
son for postponing action was tho
nbsonco of the President, who had
taken nu active part in tlio consi
deration of tho question.
Minister Damon thought some ac

Metaphorically speaking the
world stands to-day on the
ragged skirts of the old year
and, in a perturbed state of
mind, contemplates the possi
bilities and probabilities of
1894. The commercial disas
ters which befel the United
States during the past twelve
months wero of a character to
make the merchant; every
where, careful as to his pur
chases as well as his sales.
The banker who watched the
"cent per emt" promissory
notes of his customers blos
som, left them to the receivers
to pluck the fruit.
As usual, for hard times has
had no visible ettcct upon us,
wc start the year with a large
assortment of handsome goods
as well as serviceable articles.
We can give you a plow a
Hendry Breaker that is both
handsome and serviceable in
the eyes of the plantation
manager, but which would be
unattractive to the lady who
sees more beauty in one of
our piano lamps. Our stock
is selected to suit people in all
classes of society from the 400
down, but the quality in each
class is the best, and that is
the reason that every article
we sell gives perfect satisfac
tion,. The invoice of lamps we re
ceived just a little late for
Christmas included some very
handsome ones, perhaps the
prettiest wc have ever had,
and do just as well after the
holidays as any other time;
and the silver ware looks just
as well on the table. The idea
that a man should buy for his
home such articles as these on
a certain day, or at some spe
cial season is a mistake; his
wife will enjoy them at any
Last week: wc sent to tue
homes of three prominent Ho
nolulu people, Fischer steel
ranges. From two of them
we have reports mat tneir
meals have been b.tter cook
ed than ever before, and the
amount of fuel required for
the service less. 1 he ranges
we now sell you are made of
steel, just double the thickness
of any we have ever sold; this
means years of continued good
health to the stove. People
who have traveled on dining
cars in the United States will
understand the value of the
Fischer range when we tell
them that it is the one used
there. People here who have
the services of inferior cooks
will appreciate the value 01 a
Fischer range once they have
eaten a meal cooked on one
of these stoves. Compared
with the time they last, they
are cheaper than four ordinary
The Locked Fence is king
among fences, ami wc are the
sole agents for these Islands,
Like a good many other things
we sell you they last too long
to be profitable to any one but
the purchaser, bteel every
where lasts longer than wood!
Then why should not the
spring stays used in building
a locked fence outlast a wood
en post? As to strength,
there's no comparison; you
could turn loose a herd of
prize bullocks against the
Locked fence and not weaken
it, it's built with a view to re
sist the attacks of any number
of wild cattle. Its adoption by
plantation owners here is as
certain as anything can be, be
cause every one of them wants
to economize in every way
possible. There is no easiesr
way than this.
A weather prophet tells us
that the next summer will be a
dry one. If he is correct it
means a big business to us in
the way of Aermotors, and
the people who have had trou
ble during the past year in ob
taining water, had better pro
fit by the suggestion and dig
