DANIEL LOGAN, Editor.
TUKSliAY, JAN. 12, 1897.
LET US REASON TO
GETHER. For in nny yearn before 1893
or any if you like 18S7- tho al
niost iiunninions opiuiou of for
eign residents liero was that tho
beat condiliou for llawnii was in
dependence. It was thought tliul
bIip would be perfectly secure in
that condition from soizuro or
molestation by any uuwelcoiiio
Lauds. Long siuce tho United
States, lior nearest neighbor, had
given other Powers to understand
that Hnwniinn territory must bo
held inviolato, under pain of tho
active lesentinent of tlmt power
ful nation. Thus Hawaii has
been under the protoctiou of tho
United States, though not
technically a protectorate, from
the restoration of her independ
ence by Great Britain in 1843. All
along Hawaii's industry and
coininerco forming the lnsis of
her civili.pd government havo
been American. In American
euterpiise, it may truly bo said,
Hawaii lived, and moved, nud had
her being. True, other national
elemi ijN fontiihu'ed to her pros
penty. Her own soil and climate,
the genial fiiendship of tho
native inhabitants, were essential
to it. Yet it is sheer quibbling to
cite these ot'ier eouditioni for do-tiai-ting
from tho eredit duo to
Aiiieiicnii iictititj, American inflii
eiicen, American neighborhood
and American friendship, for
the existence, tho unex
ampled HHtional wealth, and
tho most lospectablo standing of
Hawaii today in the community
of free and self yowiniug nation's.
You may just as well deny to tho
peoiless colonizing and civilizing
entuiptiso o the Uritish nation
tho credit of tho marvelous devel
opment of South Atiica, bocauso
the Dutch founded and have,
aain.-t a constant succession of
adversities, maintained a republic
in that section, and enterprising
spii its of various nations including
Ameiica ha-i iluulced there and
engaged in the stiugglo for for
tune and Inine br-neath the folds
Xow, it may be asked, if Hawaii
occupies such a RntUfactoiy posi
tion, and the protecting hand of
the Unitod Stated is iiouured to her
in poipetuity, v.hy should hor
Btatus be changed hor almost
complete independence bo sacri
ficed -fur political union with tho
United States' The answer lies
in the truism that times change
and our circumstances chango with
them. Willi tho incroaso of
foreign elements aud influences,
absolutely requiting government
in conformity with ndvancod
models, thero long ago carao a
clash with tho survivals of
feudal rulo in those islands.
At first tho foudalistic power
Lent befoio tho stress of bhoor
plutoci.ttio force of exotic origin.
For a while tho monarchy was
over ndM in tho direction of
aHaiib by tho power of a foioigu
purbe, but tho situation produced
Tas not acceptable to tho entire
foreign wealth that, at the same
lime, controlled a poworful elo
iiient of mote than ordinarily in
telligent and rontless foreign do
med ucy. When tho monarchy
broke with i-no of its chief money
mainstays, r.nd looked successful
ly tonuolher foreign sotireo of ens
tononco to its state and dignity
bow grown extravagant, it soon
camo into collision with tho domi
ciled wealth whoso influenco
lnd hitherto beon spurned.
Wealth triumphed but gavo the
ecoptor into tho hands of tho
foreign demooraoy that, while
submitting to its direction for
starting, could not undor tho
secret exeicite of elpclornl finu
chiso ndopted, in keeping with
advanced methods of popular
government, be controlled in
action aud progression. In short,
an era of revolution with all its
ovils was nshorcd in. California
was onco tho ultimate land
of tho westward drift
of humanity. With tho
development of stoam tratlic in
tho Padiio those islands havo be
come tho ultima thule of that tide
with its load of human flotsam
aud jetsam. To niako a success of
independent government bore,
undor eilhor a monarchy or a
republic, thero is needed more
poweiful amalgamating influences
than a country nt once ho now
I and so small as Hawaii can pos
j sibly develop. In plain language,
tho same rocks nnd shoals with
perhaps one feature eliminated
are ahead of the republic as thoso
upon which tho monaichical ship
of stnto was wrecked. We need
tho assimilative qualities of the
United States, which havo made a
homogeneous body politic in that
vast country out of many diverse
nationalities, lo effect uuity of
grand purpose in tho mixture of
races and varied habits of allegi
nuco characterizing this little in
sular couunonweolth. Political
union with tho United States
would end the disti acting uncer
tainty that bioods in oveiy
thoughtful mind ns lo the fu
tn re or thin country. Hawaii,
from being a mere ward of
the United States, would by en
tering the Union coino into full
paituoridiip with that grand com
munity of locally self governed
States, and possess an interext
second to nono of tho family of
Liborty in that nation's glorious
Great Britain and Franco did
not in 1813 or since gnaranteo tho
autonomy of Hawaii. They simply
recognized it and ongnged with
cr.ch other and v.-.th Hawaii thct
neither of them would disturb it.
If tho action of Groat Britain and
Franco at that time had beon ns is
often orronoously icpresonted
there would havo been an interna
tional problom to scttlo regarding
Hawaii, long ore this, which has
not como up and does not today
exist. It is due to tho native Ha
waiian people that they should be
protected from tho deception of
historical fiction, which doteis
them from tho lein&ideialiuu of
real questions pertaining to their
A thus fnr anonymous histori
an of tho recent revolutionary
period has related that a caucus
of legislators in 1892, ongagod in
making and breaking Cabinet
fclatee, heaid a proposition to de
pose tho Quoon. But tho annalist
lias neglected lo say that tho pro
poser was iinprisouod in 1895 for
rebellion against the Republic.
Tho whole truth shows in bold
relief tho uncertainties besetting
any schome of independent gov
ernment for such a small com
munity of heterogeneous ele
ments. Thero is too large a pro
pel tion of tho body politic want
ing to sociiro place, power and
It is important that all suppoit
ors of tho cause of hastening tho
"manifest destiny" of Hawaii
should remember that the opposi
tion will Do on hand to "count
noses" tonight. Therefore it is
woith practising somo degreo of
self donial to bo present nt tho
meeting of tho Annexation Club.
Although tho speaking may not
bo necessary to confirm your con
victions, you will count ono in tho
illustration of public opinion on
tho grout quostion.
Speakors of this evening might
with ndvantago to tho causo of
political union challongo tho op
position to indicate a different
- -- a m , .nt4i.twj -
future for Hawaii which can givo
any promise of peace and prosper

conditions that would mako the
distinctions aud political chaos of

Irish Nationalists are beginning
to wallop seuso into tho leaders
who havo proved recalcitrant to
every appeal for giving up fac
tional strife. Tho Freemnn'sJoitrn

The conductors of Mrs. Frank
Leslie's journals hit upon a risky
expedient for meeting tho falling
off in advertising during tho Am
en ican Presidential campaign.
Advertisers wero called upon to
continue annouueoments on the
undoistanding that if Mr. IJrynu
was elected no charge should bo
made, ami payment required only
if Mr.Mclvinley became President.
The arrangement worked out suc
cessfully for tho newspapers, aud

LUBRICATING OILS AND
