Thoro wn a goodly roprosonlu
iiou of tlio scvon companies of the
CitizonH Guard iu tlio District
Court room, Saturday evening, for
4bo purpose of taking loavo of tho
retiring Marshal, E. G. Hitoli
cook, who resigned to tako his
iomor position ns Sheriff of Ha
waii. At tho sntno timu tho Gunrd
gave a hcnrty wolcomo to thoir
now chief, A. M. Brown, and tho
Inttor's succossor ns Deputy Mnr
alml, E. G. Hitchcock, Jr. Bolow
is a full nccount of tho proceed
ings, inoluding a stenographic ro
port of tho speochcs by tho Bul
Captain McStookor, commander
of tho corps, called the meeting to
order and said: Wo nro going to
bid goodbye to our old chief.
Any roraurks from me aro entirely
unnecessary you all know him
as woll as I do. I, however, in
troduco tho now Doputy Marshal.
E.G. Hitchcock, Jr., was re
ceived with applaiieo as he roso
and said: I am pleased to moat
Captain McStocker I will now
turn tho meeting ovor to tho old
Ex - Marshal Hitchcook No,
you don't, old man. Just have
your smoko. Each one if you
want to say anything, just get up
and spit it out.
Horo there wero cries for
"Brown," but tho now Murshal
said, "Mr. Hitchcook first."
Ex-Martjlml Hitchcook stopped
pulling at 0 fragrant weed and
3ioke as follows: This is not fair.
"Wo have boon horo togothor for
two yors and a half, and I am
going back to Hilo. It has boon
said, "See Hilo and die." Wo
Lave beon hero and wo havo
Bhuken each- others hands and
felt each othors hearts. This
thing of tho formation of tho
Citizens' Guards has been tho sal
vation of theso islands. I do not
boliovo in soldiers. Tho republic
an idea is for ovory man to fight
for himself. All joking asido, I
do not believe any country is safe
with too many soldiers. Those
men up in tho barracks aro not
tho inon I depended on when I
came horo. I thought that any
morning I got up I might find
tho Royalists had possession of
tho govornmont. As soon us the
Citizens' Guard was formed, ovon
with that small organization at
first, I was convinced that tho
safety of tho republican form
of government rested with them.
We huvo not been entisG
. ad with tho body horo, but
hnv t formed Oitizons' Guards
on tho othor islands. They are
just as good as we uro, and if wo
ure ever culled up we can count
on threo hundred strong at least
to coma here and fight till the
last armed foe expires. You must
not think, because I have
thought host to go back to Ha
waii, that I am abandoning any
thing. I am liko 11 bull dog,
that, when I get my tooth into
anything I hang on to it till I am
deud. Wo will hung on to this
thing till wo get annexation, and
fa will got it as suro an I am
alive. There havo been so many
things going on, giving me uo
niuoh to attond to, such us going
through the evidence of tho claims
tigiinst us unulo by Muller, Crun
'itonn 11 nd Johnston, and latterly
tho claim of Dureol, that I havo
not fioon much of you. I would
have liked to havo mot with mem
bers of the Citizen' Guard moro
than I havo. But I think you all
know me well enough to know and
to boliovo und to trust mo that if
ever I thought that thoro wan uny
serKniH Hunger that could ho
uvoided by my remaining here I
would remain. 1 think you will
do me that justice. You havo
m)) looked up to tho MarfllmJ us
tho mm) whoso buuliiestt it win
tvun moro tliun tho Uovonmienl
--to know what w going on
hern. 11 was tight f-r you to ox
pcot that ho wns tho man who was
paid to look uftor that business
And if I say it mysolf I think you
have not been trusting to a brokon
reed. I think 1 am loavlng that
matter in the hands of a man in
whom you havo confidonco. If I
thought that any man iu whom 1
did not havo confidonco would be
put in my placo I would havo put
my fool down on it. (Applauso.)
I havo attondod tu fooling tho
pulso of tho Royalists on the
other islands as woll ob in Hono
lulu. Whon I oanio back horo
tho air was full of rumors of fili
busters oomine horo. in fact tho
ships wero alroady horo, and that
at loast uvo hundred cuttnroats
would bo here shortly. 1 am
happy to say that I tako no stock
in it nlthough I havo boon told
that thoro nro four Bhips loadod
with cutthroats roady to swoop
down hero. If I boliovod that I
would stop horo and Beo that
thing through before I wont back
to Hawaii. But your late Mar
shal takes no stock in that. There
is a possibility of that happoning
just as thero is a possibility of tho
Bun's not rising tomorrow. Thore
are dirty peoplo horo still, 1 nm
sorry to say, and white mon, who
aro still making tho natives bo
liovo that woman is Koine back
on tho throno, who siy that thore
aro 600 men ready to como in and
restore that woman. They havo
their spios just tho same as we
havo, but it does not appear that
thoy aro paid tho samo as wo pay
ours. Theso ours encouraged
tho natives to fight, but
when tho day camo they
.wore not found fighting in
the field. Thoy aro telling tho
natives that those claims aro go
ing to be pressed. I am informed
that they havo told the natives
that thero is a British claim of
5245,000. John Mitohell of Ala
bama has a claim, and our friond
Norrio is said to havo ono, bo
sidoa Durreol's already preBonted.
Now, gentlemen, if they get thoso
claims you will havo to pay for
Captain McStookor They'll get
it whero tho chicken got the axe.
Mr. Hitchcock Tho natives
say next timo tho haoles will havo
to go first. You must remember
thnt I was only loaned to you. My
oopio say, "You havo beon thero
ong enough and now must come
back to us.'1 White mon stand
by us staunchly and red mon stand
by us just as staunchly. You
cannot be right unless you have
tho Hawaiian on your sido. I
foel that perhaps tho Govornmont
has not done all it might in put
ting the proper facts before the
Hawaiian. They havo just put
forth our constitution, although
thoy havo agreed with mo that it
was tho propor thing to send a
man to tho natives who could
show up facts, and the natives
would como ovor and be true
friends ot the ropublio. I do not
believe there is a man hero who
is moro particular about a hoohiH
that is Un oath to the Govern
ment than the rod man. They
muko no montal loservations as
somo of us do. In lands whero
tho gods aro powerful, such as
this country where the sharks are
omnipotont, an oath means some
thing. I cannot say it about Ho
nolulu bocauso I think that horo
in Honolulu you havo tho worst
natives in the country. And if
thoro is not a nigger in the fonco,
where the white man has not got
his foot on thoir nocks, tho natives
aro not afraid of tho white man.
I think 1 oan do us much as any
man in sotting tho minds of the
natives right, for I have slept in
their hammocks. I bolievo I can
get those peoplo to como ovor to
the Govornmont in lurgo numbors
und tukn the oath. It has somo
t lines seomod to me that we cun
not got annexation until wo got a
majority of tho natives. I think
that thoro is iu tho breasts of aver
ogo republicuiiH a foeliug that
tfiey cunnot consent to aniinexa
tion until wo get tho majority of
tho natives with us, I limy bo miu-
tiken, but that Is my view. You
noed not think I urn going to
leave you, About thoso claims
thoro are somo peoplo who uay,

Marshal Brown, bolnc oallod
upon, said : I nm sonsiblo of tho
groat honor, as I consldor it, of
being promoted to tho oflioo of
Marshal. 1 fully roalizo my lack
of ability to tako the position or
to nchievo such a record ns tho
retiring Marshal Ins dono. t It is
only from my iipponticeship to
him that 1 am willing to aocopt
tho position. In his nbsouco
it shall bo my effort to do that
duty which ho has left to mo.
Tho position of Marshal would bo
an uuenviablo ono woro it not for
tho splondid backing tho Marshal
cots from tho Citizens' Guard.
Tho military aro all right in thoii
own way thoy como and go at
the boat of tho drnra but I havo
confidence in tho Citizens' Guard.
Captain MoStockor's formation
of tho companies is just right.
I am not so concoitod as to sup
pose I can do overything. It is
only with the holp of tho Citizens'
Guard thnt wo can feel confidont
of moeting any omorgoncy. Tho
polico and tho Citizens' Guard aro
equal to tho military. I do not
agree with my prodecessor, for I
do bolievo in tho military, but if
my choice wna betweon the mm
nrv nnd tho Citizens' Guard I
alirmld tnko tho Citizens' Guard.
Tho military nro paid for what
they do, but whon it comos to da-
fending tho homos nnd famines X
should prefer tho Citizens' Guard.
I dopond upon tho Citizens'
Guard and ovory man who has
tho welfaro ol the country tit nonrt
to support mo. 1 am liable to
mnkn mintiikes. but whon a mis
take if made by a man, and it is
pointed out, ho will soiuom maKO
If nfrnin. I trust that with tho
support of tho Govornmont and of
tho Citizens uuard J. can get
Captain McStookor horo callod
for "Ayol" from ovory man who
was willing to give tho new Mar
shal his support, nnd thore wns a
Iniul nnd unanimous resnonso.
Tho Marshal was averse, tho cap
tain wont on to say, to giving bo
mnnv nnmmifl.qions. but ho trusted
in us and his trust was not broken.
