Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But Eitablithed for the Benefit of All.
FRIDAY, JAN. 5, 1894.
We had tho impression that tho
United States Government used but
one language English, or as some
patriotic Americans would have it,
"United Statos." The Star, howevor,
calls that Government a "polyglot
Charles L. Carter has protested,
in a letter to the Star, against nomi
nations to office being made by the
Annexation Club, of which body ho
declares himself to bo a member.
This is in striking contrast to the
boasts on tho street by mombers of
the club, that they put tho Provi
sional Government in, and could put
them out if they did not do as they
were wanted, in tho matter of dis
missals and appointments. Mr.
Carter and thoso who think liko
him, howovor, aro virtually road out
of court by President Dolo when, in
his reply to Minister Willis, ho- says
in effect that tho Provisional Gov
ernment recognize no oarthly autho
rity other than that of tho revolu
tionary orgauizatious, armed at tho
vxpouse of tho people, who have not
been consulted, to suppress llu will
of the nation at largo.
Vexation is shown by the Star that
its editor's nomination by the An
nexation Club to a vacancy that did
not exist in tho Provisional Govern
ment was not produced at tho meet
ing of tho Councils. It sooms tho
Aniorican Loaguo was given preced
ence on that occasion, as represent
ing tho "bravo mon" from whom
the P. G. hold their commissions.
Hut it is not on account of the An
notation Club that the editor of tho
Star fools it well to bo angry, for ho
is a niomlHir of the executive com-
mlttoo of Tim's rival organization.
But there seoinod to bo an air per
vading tho Councils that tho de
mand to foist Mr. Smith, a very now
chum, into tho elect circle was
rather audacious. Honco tho growl
hidden away amongst tho palo and
autemio local items of our oveniug
In all their historic condemnations
of tho rule of the monarchy, tho
revolutionist press and priesthood
uegloct some unsuutlal facts. One
of tho chief contributing causes to
tho oxcosses of native foolishness in
the Kalakaua period was tho readi
ness of influential and weathy resi
dents, while professing a desire for
good govorumout, to sink principle
for the sake of Government patron
age. A fat contract would buy tho
silouce and submission of many of
tho loading business houses, whoso
heads privately muttered uudying
opposition to the chosen counsellors
of Kalakaua. This was the late Mr. ,
Gibson's strong card to the last ox
tromity. The houses in question iu
some cases, whilo privately plotting
to overthrow tho mouarchy by vio
lence, gave all their advortisiug pat
ronage to Mr. Gibson's paper, which
was thou known derisively as "the
court journal," until their plans woro
cotnplotod for tho revolution of 1887.
The same people were always ready to
take advantage of tho native predi
lection for extravagant display at
tho oxponse of tho country. On tho
occasion of the obsoquies of a mem
ber of the royal family iu 188G, Mr.
Gibson gave strict orders that tho
expense should not exceed $10,000.
To this end ho had official order
books made, and issued instructions
that tho Government would not bo
responsible for goods supplied ex
cepting by written order ou tho
blauks provided. Nevertheless, cer
tain high-priucipled reform firms
dumped goods down iu tho Palaco
yard, at the unauthorized ordor of
anybody and everybody within tbo
Palace wall. It wiw thissort of unholy
dicker that trebled tho authorized
limit of expenditure. Some of thorn
wero favorod iu tho Reform Legisla
ture of 1888 by tho finance com
mittee's approval of their claims,
and they pocketed tho proceeds of
their unlawful trading without au
apparent qualm of conscience. Tho
prices extorted from tho treasury by
some of these good people iu that
matter were so exorbitant as to
make the transactions downright
steals. These are now among tho
number of those who would justify
tho Bulling of tho country by the
sins of tho monarchy!
"I know au old soldior who had

THE NATIONAL QUESTION.
Mr. Dftvles on the Provisional Gov
Tho caso of tho Provisional Gov
ernment is before tho world.
Lengthy as is tho roply which Mr.
Dolo has sent to Mr. Willis, tho
material points cau bo brieily sum
marized. 1 Tho Provisional Government
declino to regard tho decision of the
President unon tho nuostion of an
nexation, as anything nioro than the
conclusion of the present admiuis-
tion; thus limiting the dignity of
tho President, whom it is usually
deemed courteous by foreign powers
to treat as the spokesman for tho
nation and not merely for tho
2 The Provisional Government
refuse to recognize tho right of
the Prosideut of tho United
States to interfere iu tho domes
tic affairs of Hawaii, and thoy
contond that in the ovout (which
they howovor deny) of such in-
terieronce uaviug lauou piaco, ami
of its having been misusod iu favor
of tho revolutionists, tho latter
are justified iu keeping what may
have been wrongly givou them, and
in rosistiuir tho attempt of the
United States to redress the wrong.
H Tho Provisional Government
decline to be bound by nuythiug
Mr. Damon (ono of their highest
officers) may have said, to induce the
Queen to surrender to them. There
is no attempt to disprove the allega
tion that Mr. Damon induced the
Queen to surrendor by certain
promises, but "what ho said, ho said
ou his own responsibility, and did
not report it to us." It is not stated
whothor Mr. Damon is satisfied with
the indignity thus publicly offered
1 -Tho Provisional Government,
though composed chiefly of lawyers,
complain that Mr. Blount do voted
himself to tho work of collect ini? in
formation by tho examination of
witnesses and tho collection of
statistics and other documentary
matter, instead of Booking "impres
sions of tho stato of affairs, which
could best have come to him through
a wide social intercourse with tho
people of tho country."
o -.ur. Willis is remtmted mat u
is difficult for a stranger like him
self, or for tho President of the
Uultod Stales, "to obtain a clear in
sight into the real state of affairs,
and to understand tho social cur
rents, the race feoliugs, and the cus
toms mid traditions, which nil con
tribute to tho political outlook."
(1 Tho Provisional Government
declare that because thoy revered
the American institutions of civil
liberty, they desired to extend them
to this distracted country, and be
cause thoy honored the American
flag, thoy stood ready to add this
country, a now star, to its glory.
7 The Provisional Government
declino to eutortain the proposition
of tho Prosidont of tho United
States, that they should surrender
their authority to the Queen.
8 Tho Provisional Government
declare that their answer is made
largely upon their sense of duty and
loyalty to the bravo meu whose
commission they hold, and whoso
will is tho "only earthly authority"
I boliovo tho foregoing is a fnir
synopsis of tho reply sent to Mr.
Willis. I will now briefly examine
as to what it is a roplv to.
Prosidout, Cleveland, amidst a
mass of reports, finds suillcient ovi
donco to prove to him that the
"Provisional Government was not
established by tho Hawaiian people,
nor with tlioir consent or acquies
cence, nor Iioh it since existed with
their consent." Mr. Dolo does not
touch upon this vital point.
Prosiuont Clevolaud further finds
that tho forces of tho Uultod States
contributed to tho establishment of
tho Provisional Government, to such
nu extent as to causo tho United
Statos to incur a responsibility to
tho wuolo Hawaiian community.
Mr. Willis doclaros that tho Presi
dent's actiou upon the Hawaiian
dor tho dictates of honor aud duty.
Is it any answor to all this to say
that tho Provisional Government
recognizo no oarthly authority ex
copt tho will of tho mon whoso com
mission thoy hold? That has been
very cloar, ovor sinco thoy began to
turu out thoir own young Hawaiian
clerks who refusod to sell their coun
try for oflico. No ono thought so
poorly of tho Provisional Govern
ment as to believe thoy would havo
submitted to that humiliation, hnd
it not been the will of the men
whoso commission they hold.
But (he United .States can take no
cognizanco of that authority. As I
understand it, the President's ntli
tudo is this:
Tho Hawaiian nation is a recog
nised friend and ally of tho United
Statos. Five Commissioners arrived
at Washington claiming to represent
this friendly nation, and asking for
annexation. Upon investigation, the
Presidout refused the request, upon
tho solo ground that these gentle
mon did not represent tho nation
they professed to represent. He
further satisfied himself that United
Statos forces had been engaged iu
setting up this power, which he
lound to bo unauthorized. Tho Pro
sidont found, moreover, that the
sovereign of the nation with which
the United States was iu friendly
alliance, had not been deposed with
the consent or acquiescence of I lie
nation, and that she was thoreforn
still tho constitutional sovereign, iu
friendly alliance with the Luited
From this point the appeal to
duty and honor is u very simnle one;
aud it will hardly bo alluded by the
knowledge that either Mr. lilounl or
Mr. Willis has misapprehended social
currents, race feelings, or local cus
toms and traditions. President
Cleveland will scarcely beiulliieiiced
by the desire oxpressed for I he ex
tension of American institutions to
this laud, so long as ho believes that
the olTort was iu defiance of the na
tion, and therefore iu violation of
that vory civil liberty which is hero
It !a hardly possible to compaie
tho two docutnvutu, without arriving
at tho conviction that ono has been
dictated by principle, and tho othor
by sentiment. Tho bulk of mankind
unfortunately cannot como within
tho reach of these social currents
which are alleged to bo such im-
fiortant factors in judging of tho po
ilical courso of this Government,
and thoy will havo to content them
selves with tho old-fnshioued princi
ple, "Lot justico bo done, though
the heavens fall."
On the 1-lth of January tho attack
on tho constitution gave an oppor
tunity for either a reform or nu
abrogation of the monarchy, and if
the actors had exorcised proper self
restraint, thoy eould havo secured
good government by either plan.
By listening to unsound advisors,
me tun'onium n.i.t uiimtu utxij,
and a foreign power was mado a
party to tho negotiations. That
power will never consent to regard
the dictates of honor ami tho laws
of nation, as ajower earthly auth
ority than tho will of the un-named
meu to whom alone tho Provisional
Government appeal, from whom
thoy hold their commissions, but
whom they have never yet boon able

Saturday, Dec. SO, 1893.
Metaphorically speaking tho
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 were of a character to
make the merchant, every
where, carelul as to his pur
chases as well as his sales.
The banker who watched the
"cent per cent" 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 effect upon us,
we 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 .oo
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 we have ever had,
and do just as well after the
holidays as any other lime;
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 we sent to the
homes of three prominent Ho
nolulu people, Fischer steel
ranges. From two of them
wc have reports that their
meals have b'ecn better cook
ed than ever before, and the
amount of fuel required for
the service less. 1 he ranges
wc now sell you arc made of
steel, just double the thickness
of any we have ever sold; this
means years of continuedgood
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 of 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, and we 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. Steel every
where lasts longer than wood!
Then why should not the
spring stays used in building
a locked fence outlast a wood-
post? As to strength,
there s no comparison; you
could turn loose a herd of
orize bullocks aeainst 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 eaniesr
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
wells. Tho Aermotor wil!
