'WHO WILL GET THE
Under tho principal heading,
"Who Will Get tho Islands?"
thero is a Washington dispatch in
the San Francisco Chronicle of
May 31, making a column and a
half of small type. It begins by
citing private advices from Hawaii
to members of Congress, stating
that if steps are not taken soon to
show that the United States Gov
ernmoutwants closer rotations with
the island republic, the opportuni
ty will pass and the group land in
tho lap of some other natiou.
It is alleged on the samo authori
ty that European and Asiatic in
habitants of tho islands aro culti
vating the conviction of tho
natives that tho prebent Govern
ment is composed of usurpers,
dud that there is danger ot tho
next presidential election here
placing at the head of affairs a
weak, vacillating Hawaiian, who
will bo under European control
and at the fitst opportunity make
to a European Government a
similar oiler of tho isl
ands to that which tho
Dole Government iB making to
the United States. The argument
against annexation mado by John
D. Spreokels that the natives do
not want it is met at Washing
ton by assertions that if employers
of labor wonld permit a free, vote
the natives would form part of a
majority to be recorded in
favor of tho proposition. A large
portion of the dispatch in ques
tion consists of an interview with
Congressman William H. King of
Utah, author of a recently tender
ed motion for Hawaiian annexa
tion. This iutorviow concludes
with tho following utterances of
"Tho elemental components of
tho populatiou aro hotel ogenoous,
the native Hawaiians aro a weak
people. Tho Europeans and the
Orientals play upon their croduli
ty aud niako them believo that tho
present tepublican form of gov
ernment is unjust to them. They
do this with the hope of prevent
ing tho return of the present Gov
ernmenUat the next election, and
the olection of men who will not
fuvor closer relations with this
country. ' With the ever present
chanco of Japanese intervention
and English interference it is
clear that the present Government
can only be maintained by tho
active movomonts of tho United
Statoa at this tiuio. Thus it all
comes bnck to tho proposition that
if tho traditional policy of tho
Nation is to bo preserved and tho
non-intervention of all other
countries to bo prevented, it can
beat bo accomplished by tho an
nexation of tho islands."
It is to bo feared that tho cause
o annexation is being hurt at
Washington by. tho talk of its
friends. Reference is not had to
what is quoted hero from Mr.
King, but to statements roportcd
anonymously as from friends
gonorally. Tho main argument
of honesty Bhould bo that under
American influence tho form of
government in these islands was
changed, and the American Gov
ernment assumed a control of
Hawaiian domestic a Hairs of
which it is bound to as
sume tho full responsibility.
Also, that the manifest that is,
tho natural destiny of theso isl
ands being annexation, their
affairs havo reached a triage when
it is the duty of the United States
to earnestly, aa well ns immediate
ly, take into consideration tho
matter of an initiatory form of tho
admission of tho Hawaiian Isl
ands into tho Union. Tho argu
ment of danger of another coun
try's scheming to supplant the
United States in control of tho
group, as employed by Mr. King
and others, is at tho samo time
ono of real and not imaginary
boaring upon tho situation.
Mr. Allen Hutchinson's con
templated doparturo on tho steam
or Aorangi tomorrow takes from
Honolulu an artist whoso work
has refloated great lustre upon
this small capital city dunug his
stay of eight years. Ho is tho
first sculptor of genuine standing
in tho world's art circles to have
taken up long residence here, and
until just now it was hopod that
be Bhould permanently be identi
fied with Honolulu. As ho has
decided otherwise, however, it
iB in order to assuro him that
he will be greatly missed. Besides
his sculptured portraits of well -known
residents, Mr. Hutchinson
executed works of great public in
terest whilo here. Among theso
tho chief aro tho memorial bust of
King Kalakaua and tho bust of
ltobert Louis Stevenson, both
from life studies, a series
of Hawaiian types, tho models
of ancient Hawaiian life for tho
Bishop Museum, and the capitals
for tho pillars of tho groat exten
sion shortly to bo mado to that
institution. From hence Mr.
Hutchinson goes with his family
to Now Zealand, with tho iuton
tiou of continuing studies of
Polynesian life in that neighbor
hood. His ultimate destination,
it is understood, is his native
England. Tho Bulletin wishes
Mr. Hutohinson a long continua
tion of his brilliant career
wherever in tho world his inolina
tion leads him, and bis amiablo
wife and daughter as well as him
self health and happiness with
length of days.
Intelligence of Mr. Hastings'
death is sad indeed. Cut down in
tho primo of life, whilo engaged
in the most important duties that
ever devolved upon him in his
Ioug official career, his ending
calls for tho deepest sympathy
with his bereaved widow, as well
as feelings of commiseration with
tho Government of ( this Republic

Tho following lotter has been
received by the editor of tho Bul
letin with leave to publish it: :
Another pioneer gone I R. W.
Meyor, a man of blamoless charac
ter, of most scrupulous honesty
and roro ability. Soventy-ouo
years! He lived 40 years on theso
islands and nobody could olso but
speak good of him. Alas, when
ho wob 70 years old and vonorablo
thero came forth a lying news
paper writor and assailed his
character and ability. As I was
known to bo his friond, my atten
tion was drawn to theso spurious
articles and I asked him for ex
planations. Ho wroto mo n long
lotter, which I will be happy, to
show you or his family, but ho re
fused to answer in print. Ever
since he has complained to mo
about tho licentiousness of cer
tain newspapers and ouly a dny
or two before his death our con
versation was on the samo sub
1 do bolieve that tuoso misera
ble newspapor articles contributed
to ruin his health or to cause his
death. A man of 70 years' fault
less standing is generally sensitive
to a public insult.
The cold world will soon forgot
him, but I cannot lot him bo
buried without commenting on his
troublo and the probable cause of
hiB death. As I cannot pay him
tho last honors on Molokai, I
avail myself of this opportunity to
express my feelings, viz: that
Hawaii has lost ono of its best
citizens, a man of storling charac
ter. Lot him rest in peace aud honor
to his memory 1

NOVELTY STEEL HARNESS
This week our topic for the
consideration of the Hawaiian
public is the merits of Sh er
wood's Novelty Steel
This is really the most com
plete and wonderful thing in
the harness line ever offered to
the public. Singletrees, double
trees and traces are entirely
done away with, and a single
chain is all the coupling used
between the team and plow or
wagon, whichever may be
used. The whole arrangement
is simplicity itself, and the
price $25 the set, well within
the reach of every teamster.
With this steel harness you
may use your old bridles, lines
and collars. It is just the thing
for plantation work. The sev
eral sets now in use in some of
the plantations giye good satis
faction. We have also a very fine
stout, strong and well-made
Dump-Cart Harness in two
qualities. You would go a
long way to equal them at the
prices, viz.: 20 and $23 per
