Mr. Urcshatn, In giving this volumln
ous prlntoil matter to tlio press, ex
plained that It Included everything
connected with Mr. Blount's mission to

statistical tables relating to tlio Isl
ands. Tlio matter conslsU of thrca
parts, tlio first beginning wllli n copy
of tha Instructions given Mr. Illount
on March 11, 1693, prior to Ills depart
ure from Washington for Honolulu,
and tho last pirt ondlng-wlth a brief
letter under duto of July 81, 169.1, In
which he takes his Congo as follows:
"Tlio condition of parties In tho
Islands Is ono of quiescence. Tho no
tion of tho United Htatcs Is awaited by
all ns a matter of necessity. This con
dition, It can bo nssumed, will remain
until tha proposition to nnnox Is ac
cepted or rejected. In tho latter con
tingency no fiuddon movement Is llhuly
to occur. The present government can
only rest on a basis of military force,
possessed of most of tho nrins In tho
Islands, with n small whlto population
to draw from to strengthen it. Ulti
mately It will fall without fall. It
may preserve Its uxlstcnco for n year
or two, but no longer."
Then lie adds that lia has dono his
duty ns well ns lie could, "considering
I was surrounded by persons Interested
In misleading," and his prlvnto nffnlrs
necessitated his return homo.
Secretary Urcsham's letter of Instruc
tion to Mr. Illount, dated March II,
dcUncs clearly how far, In tho opinion
of tho president, tho usu of armed
forco Is permissible by tho United
States to pull down or set up govern
ments. Mr. (Iresham says:
"In the Judgment of tho president,
your authority us well as that of tlia
commander of tho nuval forces In Ha
wallnn waters should tie, and Is limited
In tliu use of force to such measures ns
nro necessary to protect tho iiersons
and property of our citizens; mid whllu
abstaining from uuy manner of Inter
ference with tho domestic concerns of
tha Islands, you should Indicate your
willingness to Intervene with your
friendly titllces In tha Interest of u
peaceful settlement of troubles within
tliu limit of sound discretion,
"Should It bo necessary to laud no
nfmcd force upon "Hawaiian territory
on occasions of popular disturbance,
when tha authority may lo liuablo to
give adequate protection to tha Ufa and
property of citizens of tho United
Mates, tho assent of such authority
should first lio obtained, if It can bo
done without prejudice to tha Interests
Mr. Illount takes tha position through

tha queetv wax accomplished by a con
spiracy lietneen tho foreigners opposed
to her nnd Minister Stevens, who, lie,
claims, agreed to and did land tho
United States troops to support tho
movements of tho conspirators.
Mr. Illount says tha nutlvo raco feel
a great wrong has lieen douu them nnd

"Indeed, who would have supposed
thnt tho ulrcumstancessurroundlug hor

'"1 lie Men of attaching any suspicion
to Mr. Drako is absurd. He has (100,
