It wns six years ngo tliia day
that tho ruling cleinifnt of Ha
waii's later history made the posi
tive revolutionary stop that seem
ol nfceseary to fulfill Hawaii's
destiny us a possession of the
United States. Whether this
revolution was brought about by
disgust with the monarchical rulp,
tho McKinlfy 60gar bounty, or
thodrsiroof local American cili
zjub to hasten Arxotican rulo is a
pDint that will bo diEcusccd and
nover settled so long as history is
written. Fate willed that it
Bliould bo done and it was done.
That is sufficient. Tho combina
tion of chicanery and honest
principle was probably no greater
than it appears in the usual run of
notablo historical events.
Six years ago tho rank and filo
followed loaders and created load
ers who were sworn to annexation
to the United Statos nnd to uphold
American principlo and American
progress in Hawaii. Strong
forcos wero brought to bear
against them and each and ovory
timo during tho most troublesome
days that tho lenders called they
have nover found tho rank and filo
wanting. At every crisis tho
man in tho ranks stood
as a solid phalanx to sup
port tho principlo of annexation.
As tho dangers of tho local situ
ation decreased, as tho chances of
tho final consummation of tho an
nexation principlo increaecd tho
people of Hawaii havo witnessed
tho steady drawing away of tho
executivo leaders from tho moo
who had supported them in timo
of need; they witness tho
oxecntive power becoming a
closo corporation whoso ob
ject is to servo personal ambi
tions, casting asido not only tho
counsels of their supporters, but
nlso tho American principles the
fulfillment of which verifies tho
contention of tho rank and filo
that annexation to tho United
Status not only protects Hawaii
from foroigu enemies bnt improves
tho condition of our body politic,
giving to ench citizon of Hawaii
tho rights and privileges guaran
teed Amorican citizens by tho
constitution of tho United Statos.
For months tut rank and filo havo
witnessed tho increased imperial
ism of tho closo oxooutivo corpor
ation nnd said nothing boing truo
t their principlo that no act of
theirs novoicoof discontont would

On Aug. 12, 1898, tho Americnu
flag wns raise', Hawaii boonmo
American territory, tho causo was
won. And what was tho political
situation over which tho banner of
Amorican freedom was unfolded ?
It found tho rank and file
of tho annexation parly ready
and willing to accopt American
principlo, ready to givo to their
opponents in the annexation
cnueo tho full American rights
which tho ling has always assured;
it found tho rank and file accept
ing Amorican ann?xation in the
It also found an official circlo, a
close official corporntiou, members
of which had ropoatedly announc
ed that their desire for offico was
only to carry through tho annexa
tion causo to completion, irrevoca
bly divorced from their supporters
nnd bending nil efforts to fulfill
tho selfish greod for offico. It
found tho closo executivo corpora
tion bending nil its power to fore
stall tho speedy extension of Ame
rican laws to Hawaii and cham
pioning tho disfranchisement of.
tho newly created cilizons of this
American territory; championing
an unAmorican causo directly
contrary to tho constitution of tho
United States and abhorrent to
American citizens. It found tho
high officials of tho Ilawai
ian Republic not only bend
ing their overy energy to provont
tho Americanizing of tho territory,
placing thoir selfish interests first
nnd tho inteicsts of tbo people
Inst, but also seeking to upset the
Amorican constitution in its nppli
aation to Hawaii. From tho day
tho flag wap raised, during tho de
liberations of tho Commission
oven until now tho chief executivo
of Hawaii and his official adher
ents havo been consistent in their
opposition to American principlo
nnd individual American rights as
voiced by tho ballot.
Tho awakening to trno condi
tions to which tbo raising of the
flag bore hns treated tho American
penplo nnd tbo officials in Wash
ington is doubtless ono of surprise.
It was a surpriso to tho Amorican
members of tbo Commission, but
thoy found, as tho officials in
Washington have found that it
was no dream. It was in fact a true
awakening ftom a dream of the
past that bus idealized tho Anierio
anism of theso official lcadors.
As Hawaii stood on January
17, 1893 at tho parting of tho
ways between an independent and
troublod nntion, and a froo terri
tory nnder a strong but liberal
rulo, so on this Jnn. 17, 1899,
Huwaii stands at tho parting of
tho ways between honest Amori
can rulo by loyal American offi
cials, or narrow, selfish centraliz
cd rulo no less distastofnl to the
Amorican mind thnu absolute
monarchy by officials whose do
siro for power ovorshndows what
small latent ' appreciation thoy
may Lnvo of tho welfare
of tho Amorican peoplo
both in Hawaii and on tho contin
ent. Then and now Hawaii's
futuro for good or ill is largoly in
tbo hnnds of tho President of tho
United States. Tho Americans
of Hawaii await tho ontcomo with
confidence. As Harrison set tho
annexation ball rolling on tho
pathway of American progress, it
seoms impossible that Mo
Kinloy, ono of tho most
notablo and respected' Ame
ricans of history, can fail to plaoe
tho clear and positive stamp of
Amoricanism upon tho offioial life
of Hawaiian territory, thus assur
ing thnt whatever laws Congress
may pass they will bo interpreted
in tho truo American spirit, and
not by local officials whose idea of
annexation to tho United States is
that it is a consummation of Ame
rican principlo with a string tied
