Dei'AtlTMKNT OF STATU. J

AuujrS. Wiui., Km., Honolulu,

of February 23 that on tho 22d of

vieted before a military commisiou

sitting at Uouolulu for partieipa-

or uprising in Hawaii early iu Jauu-
ary and sentenced to imprisonment
at hard labor for five years and to
pay a fine of $5000; that ho now t
claims protection as nti American
citizen: and that tho Hawaiian

naturalized citizon of that Govern
Whon Mr. Bowler left this eoun-!
try and wont to Hawaii doos not ap-1
pear, out on March IS, 1885, be
voluntarily took an oath to support
tho constitution and laws of tho
Hawaiian Islands and boar true alle
giance to tho king, without exprossly
renouncing or resorving his alio
glance to tho United States. Sec
tion 432 ot the statute prescribing
thin oath (Compiled Laws of Ha
waii, 18S1), providos that evory for
eigner so naturalized shall bo doom
ed for all purposes a native of the
islands and subject only to their
laws and ontitled to their protec
tion, and no longer amenable to his I
native sovoroigu whilo residing iu
the kingdom, nor ontitlod to resort '
to his native country for protection
or intervention j that for every such
resort ho shall bo subjeo etl to tho
pouallies annxid to rebellion, and I
that having been thus naturalized
ho shall bo entitled to all tho rights '
and immunities of a Hawaiian sub
ject. I am informed that the Su-;
promo Court of Hawaii has hold that '
tho takiug of this oath operates to j
naturalize tho alien and admit him
to full citizenship. It is uot claim
ed that sineo 1885 Mr. Bowler ovor
roturnod to tho United Stales or re
sided elsewhere than on tho islands.
This Government has never hold
to tho doctrine of perpetual allegi
ance, oil the contrary from its or
ganization, it has maintained that
tho rights to throw off one's natural
allegiauco and assume auothor is in
alieuable. "Expatriation," said Attorney-General
Black in 1859, "in
cludes not only emigration out of
one's native country, but naturaliza
tion in the country adopted as a
future rosideuce." Tho offoot of
naturalization is to place the adopt
ed citizon iu tho same relation to
tho government as native citizens or
subjects. The right of the Hawaii
an Government with his consent to
adopt Mr. Bowler as fully as if ho
had beon born upon its soil is as
clear as his right to expatriate him
self. He manifested his intention
of abandoning his American citizen
Bhip by takiug tho oath to support
tho constitution and lawa of Ha
waii and bear true allegiance to tho
king, and, so far as known, ho mani
fested no contrary intention before
his arrest. That oath is inconsist
ent with his allegiauuo to tho Unitod
Statos. By taking it ho obliged
himsolf to support the government
of his adoption, even to tho extent
of lighting its battles in thoovont of
war botweou it nud tho country of
his origiu. IIo could uot bear true
allegiance to both governments at
tho pa mo time.
Tho President directs that you
inform Mr. Bjwlor that ho is not en
titled to tho protection of tho
United States; that in similar casos
you will bo glided by tho views
herein oxpretscd and that you fur
nish tho Ministor of Foreign Affairs
with a copy of this instruction.
I am, Mr.
Your obedient servant,
