THE INFAMOUS CAMPAIGN.
Apropos of tho campaign Inaugurat
ed by tho offlclal organ to turn the poli
tics of Hawaii Into tho channels of a
race war, It Is timely to draw atten
tion to tho statements published dur
ing tho annexation campaign by '. A.
Thurston who now controls tho morn
Tho leading feature of Jlr. Thurs
ton's pamphlet Is, "Twenty Objections
to Annexation and Replies thereto."
Tho fourth objection roads, "Whether
tho annexation of n non-homogeneous
people is constitutional or not. tho
population of Hawaii Is unfit for incor
poration Into, and will bo dangerous
to tho American political system."
In making answer to this objection
Mr. Thurston takes "tho iMHorent
nationalities up In detail." First the
Native Hawallans nre dealt with uf.
"Tho Nntlvo Hawallans, only :!.T 0C0
In number, aio a conservative, peace
ful nnd generous people. They have
had during tho last twenty years to
struggle against tho retrogressive ten
dencies of tho reigning family; but in
spite of that, a very largo proportion
of them havo stood out against such
tendencies, and aro supporters of tho
Republic and of annexation. The ma
jority of the present Houso of Hepro
sentatives, the llrst under tho repub
lic, consists of pure-blooded Native
Hawallans, nnd tho Speaker of tho
Houso Is a Natlvo Hawaiian.
"Tno Hawallans aro not Afrlcnus,
but Polynesians. They aro brown not
black. There. Is not, nnd never has
been any color lino In Hawaii as
against tho native Hawallans, and they
partlclpnto fully and on an equality
with tho white people In nffnlrs poli
tical, social, religious and charitable.
Tno two races freely Intermarry one
with tho other, the results being shown
In a present population of somo .C00 of
mixed blood. They aro a race which
will In the future, as they hao In the
past, easily nnd rapidly asslmilato with
and adopt American ways nnd meth
In 1897, Mr. Thurston published
abroad over his own signature that tho
Natlvo Hawallans aro u "conservative,
peaceful and generous poople;" that
"a very large proportion of thorn
are supporters of tho Republic
and of annexation;" that "there Is not
and never has been any color lino In
Hawaii." Replying to tho "tnth ob
jection" that "a large portion of Ha
waiian voters havo bccil disfranchis
ed;" tho answer reads, "Tho reply to
tho objection Is that no Hawaiian vot
ers havo been disfranchised.
Thus wo find Mr. Thurston clalmins
for tho Hawallans that strength and
breadth of character, tho conaorratlvo
political acumen which Justifies their
admission to tho full rights and privi
leges of American citizenship.
Slnco this pamphlet was issued the
annexation of Hawaii to tho United
States has been consummated, Mr.
Thurston has assumed control rf tho
paper accepted a3 tho mouthpleco of
tho ruling offlclal circle, and the Unit
ed States Congress has passed a bill
which gives citizens of Hawaii an
equal volco In tho local affair of tho
territorial administration. Suffrage
has been limited only by nn educatlounl
qualification In splto of tho elToils of
our local government repiesentntlved
and their arguments picsented thiough
tho columns of tho offlclal organ, to
enforro upon tho people it limitation of
privileges gauged by property values.
As Hawaii Is about to enter upon Its
American career, with tho llo cast so
far as tho question of suffrage, Is eon
ccrncd, tho offlclal organ starts out on
a campaign which Is nn Insult to every
citizen of Hawaii of natlvo Hawaiian
ancestry. Tho Amcrlcnn statesman who
granted tho Natlvo Hawaiian full
American rights, as (hoy must neces
sarily grant "a conscrvntlvo, peaceful
nnd generous people' 'who "oaclly nnd
rapidly nHsliulluto with nnd udopt
Aiiieilcau ways nnd methods,"
worshipping tho fulso god of "Amorl
rnnlsm." Tho organ ulno Iiiih a night
maro of a bitter campaign against tho
"imolo" nnd ponders oer n rneo wnr of
n moat unholy nnd terrible character.
Hnvlng been brought to tlmo by the
people Irrespective of raco or rational
ity, nnd clinging before tho uni
versal condemnation roused by Its In
famous campaign, the organ whines
tlint tho "Royalist organ, tho Indepen
dent" has Instigated "tho color lino In
politics." Admitting this to bo true,
although tho Advertiser was presented
with n communication from Mr. Testa,
proprietor of tho Independent, which
it ha3 not published, Is there r.ny par
ticular reason why tho offlclal organ
should further tho cause of racial war
faro by charging Natlvo Hawallans
throughout tho group with harboring
sentiments entirely now to their per
sonal character and ns they well know
Inimical to their welfare as American
Why should tho offlclal org in at this
tlmo placo such stress upon tho state
ments of tho Independent, whori this
same so-called "Royalist organ" was In
189 1 using Its columns to rcfuto tho
assertions of tho Thurston pamphlet
that "a very largo proportion" of tho
Hawallans "nro supporters of tho Re
public nnd of annexation" nnd "that no '
Hawaiian voters havo been disfranchis
ed." Is tho organ prepared to stato that
tno assertions In Mr. Thurston's
pamphlet aro not truth?
Why did tho offlclal organ put words
In tho mouth of Mr. Tcstn which he
did not utter?
The pcoplo of these Islands can place
but one Interpretation on tho (ourso of
the organ. Enraged nnd dbigruntlcd
that tho United States Congress should
grant to this Territory n thoroughly
Amcrlcnn government, embittered by
the abject falluro of tho offlclal delegate
In dealing with Amcrlcnn statesmen,
tho organ Is prepared to conduct nnd
is now furthering n campaign to forco
a raco war upon tho America politics
of Hawaii, to so enrage tho Native Ha
wallans and their allies as to cause
them to commit such political Indis
cretions, thnt Congress will be willing
by futuro legislation to disfranchise
tho Native Hawallans or iilow tho
enactment of laws by tho Territory
that will accomplish tho samo result.
The people and the Nntlvo Hawallans
know the motives of tho offlclal organ,
and tho faction it represents, too well
to allow It to accomplish Its perfidious
