Huriinfj beon abjent on a busi
ness trip to Hawaiiaud Maui I
wu?. prevented from anBwcring,Mr.
AV. 1. fiustlo'e lettpr, whicli ap
peared in the Daily Advertiser of
tlio 20th Novomber and the re
marks m&do thereon by the editor
of said paper, beforo this.
I must say, I was sorry and as
tonished when I rend Mr. Castled
and tho Adcertisor's virulent at- .
tack against mo. How cun a man,
who wants to figuro among tho
most enlightened and progressive
citizens of our times show himself
bo intolerant and unablo to dis-
cuss a political problem in a quio,
just way I Does ho know no better
way to help tho cnuso of annexa
tion but by blackening tho char
petor of those opposed to it ?
Doob ho hope, people will boliovo
his uusertion, that all those who
favor annexation, are led only by
tho highest, noblest motivos and
the other Bide only by a bane nud
mercenary spirit ? 1 liavo novor
agreed with those, who pointed
out the bounty as tho ono and on
ly motivo of the annexationists.
No, L credit them with sovoral mo
tives and good motives too, but
can-it be denied, that bunines8 iu
terosfB, that is to say fiolfish inter
estrt, had a great deal to do with
thin cry of annexation ? Mr. Cub
tlo blames mo for not having or- '
stated him in carrying a gun. Is
hia memory so short ? Has ho
forgotten, that in tho niasB meet
ing of 1887 wheu he aud somo of
his friends, for tho first time in
Hawaiian History, woro going to
point gnus at their lawful authori
ties, 1 opporal thorn and advised
thorn strongly not to uudertako
anything unlawful, to uso on
ly legal meaus for Bottling
tho difficulty ? I had learned
enough from history and from lifo
to know, that applying to guns
would lead us into ouo revolution
after tho other. Have tho evouts
not justified my opinion? So
much, that Mr. Castle, onco an '
enthusiastic advocate of tho gun, i
has grown tired of it and wishes '
for Annexation in order to bo re-'
lieved of his cun. 1 am sorrv for '
him, but ho must not blamo mo
for his troubles.
And now lot mo explain my rea
sons why I am in favor of closer
commercial union but not in favor
of political union with tho United
States. At first, because it goes
against my feeling of honor and
against my conscience as a citizen
of Hawaii, that I should help to
tako away tho last particlo of in
dependence and political power
and authority from tho Hawaiians,
whom I for many years havo
known nB sharing in tho Govern
ment of thoir couutry, and who
linvo always been kind and friend
ly to mo.
That annexation would have
Umt r liVci, has been demonstrated
to mo clearly by conversations
with prominent politicians iu tho
East. Not only politically but
also socially tho Hawaiians would
suffer groat lo.is, being put on the
Bnmo level with tho Negroes and
Indians. Poihaps this is too
sentimental for Mr. Cahtle, but
what about tho practical effects
Annexation would have? What
profit, that olospr commercial
union would not bring, could po
litical union bring to the United
States or to theso Islands? I
think none. Tho annexation of
theso Islands would causa tho
United States only trouble, forc
ing upon them a largo portion
of an alien population. Tho
United StatoB havo tho bulk of
tho trado with the Hawaiian Isl
ands. Tho trado cannot bo en
larged by annexation, but it will
decrease, ns all busiuoss in Hono
lulu dopoudfl on Biigar so far and
I fear sugarwill not prosper un
der annexation. Coffeo is in its
infancy bo far and, as far as I
know, tho suocoss of coffee cul
turo depends at first on cheap la
bor. Thero is no duty on coffeo iu
tho United States aud Hawaiian
cofToo has to compcto with coffee
grown iu other countries.
And what would we gain by
giving up our iudopondenco? So
far wo have been our own masters,
havo mado our laws according to
our needs and havo shared iu tho
Govornmonl of the couutry, but if
annexed, wo could not bo a State,
only a small territory of the groat
Union, devoid of political inllu
euco, ruled by thoso Hot acquaint
ed with our needs. I think, many
who are Booagor to advocate annex
ation now would very soon feel
Borry, if it should come they would
lose their ofliceB and their influ
ence. Aud how about our sugar,
coffeo and rice plantations? They
all need a great deal of labor and
of cheap labor too in order to bo
able to compete with tho world.
Lawyers liko Mr. Castle, who have
only a vory light, superficial
knowledge nbout tho needs of
plantations, think they know more
than experienced planters. They
tell us, that white settlors and
profit shariug nystom will eao us.
Unfortunately this is nothing but
Since lo yoars tho Lihuo plan
tation has kept up a considerable
population of white laborers so as
to bo loss dependent on Asiatics.
Tho said plantation lias done
much more in this respect than
any of tho plantations Mr.
Castle is interested in aud has
spent a great deal for it, but tho
result is, whito men do well with
machiiHT, steam plowH, etc., but
the regular field work, the irri
gating, hoeing, stripping in tho
cano fioldn, they cannot do and
they simply will not do, even if
you offer them to enter into a
Bypteiu of profit ehaving. How
about the profit sharing in Ewa ?
"Who enter into it ? Asiatics, not
whito men; I understand, tho Por
tuguese, who tried it, made a
failure of it. It appears, that Mr.
Castle does not know the tendency
of the people in tho civilized
countries of our times ! They
leavn the eoi,;,tc, and floek to
getUer in the cities, they dislike
farm work and shirk it. Who
does the 'oik on tho beet planta
tious of Germany ? Not German
luborers, thoy work in tho cities,
but poor people from Poland,
who urn brought by contrac
tors undor contracts. Small
fanners and profit sharers
aro iu need of them as well as
largo landowners. DoeB not tho
samo hold trua, for tho United
States ? Tho cities are ovor
crowded and tho country is very
Bpari-oly populated aud tho farm
ers havo more nud more difficulty
to got their work done. The facts
show clearly tho fallacy of Mr.
If wo Bhall dopend for onr

Bhall havo to give up tho Planta
tions. Evon if wo should go to
tho greatot oxponsos wo should
never bo ablo to bring enough of

Tho most willing to oomo and tho

Two jyars ago a Honolulu
paper puijlishod an accouut of
trouble that Captain John Leo
had got into with the bail; Temp
lar at Cailao, Peru. That account
ropresontod the bark as having
been seized, tho captain imprifion
od and his actions placed iu an
unfavorable light. Tho captain
is hero now as master of tho bark
O. D. Bryant. Ho has givou a
Bulletin reporter access to tho
Templar's log aud an immense
mass of documouts, including a
papor from th Statu Department
at Washington bearing tho big
red soal. Tho trouble has been
the subject of litigation at San
Francisco, and its circumstances
are now in evidence beforo tho
United States Court of Claims.
What appears below iB based on
tho documents, excepting inform
ation concerning Captain Lee's
pending Buit for damages.
The burkTflinplur,whvroof John
Loo was master and part owner,
arrived at Cailao from Puget
Sound after a bIow passugo of 113
dayB, on April 19, 1801. Accord
ing to tho ship's nrticU-B, issued
from tho Shipping Commission
er's ollien at Sun Francinco, tho
Templar was to havo gone from
any port or ports in British Col
umbia or Puget Sound to Culhio,
and thence to any port or ports iu
tho North or South Pacific, tho
voyage not to exceed twolvo calen
dar months. Somo of tho crow
misbehaved on tho voyugo and
the second mnto was disrated for
sleeping repeatedly on his watch.
Captaiu Leo set tho crow lo
work discharging cargo nt Cailao,
but they did not como to time
mornings owing to bprees ashore,
'ihoroture about sixteen days after
arrival, having had to lino shore
laborers to didchargo cargo, Cap
tain Lee discharged mont of tho
crew for bad conduct. Tho United
States Consul refused to pay tho
men off, and ordered thorn on
board tho ship. This official was
a IUiBsian Polo namod Leon Jas
tremski. Captain Leo would not
allow tho men aboard ship.
For three mouths a dispute was
carried on between tho captaiu
and the coubuI. Tho consul wont
bo far as to insinuato that Captaiu
Leo had committed tho offense of
erasing nrinted words in tho arti
cles, which in tho form reud that
the crow waB to bo discharged at
Bomo port in the United States.
Onco tho consul in presonco of his
wife threatened to assault tho
captain with a claw hammer. Tho
wife was greatly alarmed but
Captain Leo offerod tho consul
the loan of his rovolver to kill
bin if he dared. Captaiu Leo was
forbidden to ontor tho CoiiBulato,
but in this matter he stood upon
his rights aa an American ship
At length tho ronaul had the
captain arretted, as stated in the
following log entry mado by J.
I5ryan, mute, and witnessed by L.
Crintz, carpenter, and George
l1 lnnoy, li. Beyoi and Uoo. Lreo
oon, A. B.'s:
"Thursday, August ), 1894.
This date engaged by Captain Leo
of bark Tomplar ns chief ollicor and
told by captain to tako four A. p.'B
with mo and meet him at United
States consul's oflice, which 1 did,
to sign articles of agroomont.
When wo got to tho consul's oilico
Captain Leo introduced mo to tho
consul's clerk as chief ollicor.
Tho captain novor spoko to the
consul, who walked out of tho in
uor oilico. Captain Loo uovor
spoko but stood where ho was, so
tho consul called iu threorpolico
mon and had tho captain taken to
prison, whqro ho romaiuod till 8
p, m. the samo evening. I went
thero twice, to tho prison myself
to seo tho enptnin and the enrpon
tor also wont to boo him."
Tired out at length by tho con
sul's obstinacy, Captain Loo went
to San Francisco by steamer,
leaving tho Templar iu charge of
tho carpenter nud cook. Ho told
tho consul beforo going that ho
could doanvthinnr he nleimf-d ivi'li
I tho Templar. Tho vessel was
Bold for "nothing," the captain
says. A libol in admiralty was
brought in tho United States Dis
trict Court at Son Fruucisco by
Peter Grant and -others of tho
Templar's crew against John Leo,
tho Pacific Marino Supply Com
pany uud others, owners of the
Templar. Judgo Morrow decided
that the owners wero not respon
sible for payment of tho passages
of tho crew to San Francisco,
as they woro destituto seamen- un
der tho statute. The payraout of
their wnges to the consul was
held not legal, and the court found
tho amount for which tho owners
wero liablo to each of the plaintiffs.
Captuiu Leo's complaint to the
State Department resulted in tho
dismissal of Consul Jastremski,
and the owners of the Templar
are prosecuting a suit for damages,
on account of tho doings of that
official, in tho United States
Court of Claims. Captain Leo
had notified tho consul at a cer
tain dato that from thence he
would chargo him with demur
rago for every d".y's detention of
tho bark. The captain has certi
ficates from prominent mon at
Cailao, to his good conduct uudor
all tho tryiug circumstances.

MrB. Emily Brainerd Ryder, M.
D., had a largo audience of ladies
for the opening lecturo at Y. M. O.
A. hall yesterday afternoon. She
wore a whito dress ami black sa-h,
over which was a professor's cloak
of black silk, and on hor head a
"mortarboard" cap. Dr. llyder
began hor lecture with a personal
introduction of hersolf. After five
yearB of medical study sho gra
duated at tho Women's Collego of
Modicino, UnivorBity of Now
York, in tho class of 1875, nud re
ceived tho post graduate diploma
of an eye and ear hospital of Now
York in 187G. Dr. Byder studied
in Vienna throe years, residing in
a hospital as physician and fol
lowing tho dimes and lectures of
renowned .German physicians
thoro. She holds diplomas from
tho most distinguished profes
sors and doctors of Vienna. Al
so sho spent Bix months in Pa
ris, and the t-aino time in London
hospitals, trniniug undei Sir T.
Snencer Wei s mid Sir Aim-nil
Mackonzio. Moreover, sho has
practiced medicine for twenty
years in America and India,
and ib a momber of tho old
I est medical Bocioty of Ameiicii,
organized iu th city of Now York
in JWo. in. Hyder is now devot
ing herself to tho emancipation of
tho child wives of India, having
iu that behoof been delivering
afternoon health lectures to ladies
in tho Australasian colonies.
Tho lecturer told of the acciden
tal manner in which tho lamenta
blo condition of this class was first
brought home to her. Traveliug
as a tourist in India bIio fell in
with tho famous Pundita Hhain
abai, tho tileuted East Indian
lady who recently visited tho
United States and Canada lectur
ing on the child wives of India.
On arrival at a certain station l3r.
ltyder wo? by this lady introduced
to a man of rank, who learning of
her profession asked her to go to
Iub house to peo his sick wifo.
Had she boon presented as a mis
Biouary, tho lecturer said, sha
would never have beeu invited to
tho houso of such a nabob, nor
havo had any notice taken of hor.
Upon going to tho Iioubo alio
found tho wife to be a child of
uino years, thus young a misera
ble cripple from tho hardships
and abubo to which child wives aro
subjected. So deeply did tho caso
impress horympathios that, in

Whon a girl is born there a

Thero aro twenty million wivoa

their husbands' homes, whoro" they
aio taken before thoy aro six years
of ago. People thoro beliovo that
n woman has no soul. Dogs and
cats aro allowed souls, but women
aro hold to rank beneath theso
animals in tins respect, although
holding a placo bolwoou them and
tlmir liego 1 irds. This beliof wan
illustrated to tho leoturor by a
Hindu, who arranged his wifo
and his domodtio animals on
either 6ido of him for nn object
lesson. Thero is juat ono way for
a womau to acquire a soul, but tho
game is hardly worth tho candle
to her, as a womau, for in the pro
cess sho bocomoB a man. If sho
has been a dutiful wifo in this lifo,.
in tho noxt stngo nftor death she.
is ondowed with a soul whoreby,
in a farther advanced stage, bIio is
qualified to bo mado a man.
Theso child wives aro regarded
as slaves by thoir huslmuds. Ouo
