Ex-Minister Stevens Gives His Views
in Answer to Inquiry.
(Boston IMlv Hernld, Nov. 23, 1691.)
Iu reply to a letter of inquiry from
Mr. Qorham D. Oilman, Hon. John
L. Stevens gives his views on an oft
mooted subject of discussion relative
to the republican form of govern
ment at the Hawaiian Islands, and
the course pursued with the colored
t pooplo of the southern states.
I Whether the Republican "recon-'
struct ion measures'' in respect to the
colored citizen suffrage, which Con
gress finally adopted, were entirely i
, wise, or the essentially different mea- t
euros of President Lincoln and Sec- ,
I rotary Seward, which thoy would
Have urgeu bad tno former not fallen l
by the assassin, would have been '
better, is not now a practical ques
tion. It is now quite obvious that, i
were the "reconstruction issues to
t be dealt with anew, thoy would be
settled iu some respect differently
from what they were settled. Wheth-
I er this bo eo or not it is correct to
say that tho southern situation, in
t the years immediately after tho war,
I was essentially unlike tho present
The Hawaiian situation should bo
considered distinctly by Itself and
on its own merits and facts.
Tho real, pressing, overshadowing
question iu Hawaii is not at all bo
twet'u tho permanent white residents
aud tho natiio Hawaiians.
It should bo kept in mind that
there is harmony aud fraternal sym
pathy between the best of tho whites,
tho supporters of tho new republic,
aud tho best of the natives, and that
tho latter were well represented in

chief danger feared is not at all in !
respect of tho native Hawaiians.
Tho real danger, tho burning issue,
iu the minds of tho roxponsiblo citi
zens of tho islands, is in respect of a
i large Asiatic population, and nowly
arrived adventurers, who own little
or no property, who seek to load all
tho irresponsible elements in tho
. islands against wholesome laws and
honest administration. Upon to new
; comers from all parts of tho world,
tho friends of civilization and of free
, institutions, Americans in blood and
, tho allies aud friends of Americans,
I including all tho more advanced aud
, more responsible portion of tho na
tives, see tho absolute necessity of
limiting tho suffrage for the present,
as a security against foreign hostile
1 dangers as well as domestic evils.

or narrowed to a single issue pass

Or shall tho islands bo over run
by Asiatic aud adventurers of all
lauds, thus iu au essential degree
1 extinguishing tho uoblo aud sacrlllu-
I efforts of American missionaries, '
I teachers, physicians aud others run

It should bo kept iu mind that the
suffrage rule iu the new Hawaiiau '
constitution is a strictly impartial l
I one. It grows out of au imperative ,
1 necessity. Its objects aro patriotic, i

Our foreign rivals, who fully under
