Annexation party, aud commonly
known as tho Seuate of Hawaii, yesterday
wont through the form of
ratifyiug a document purporting to
be a treaty of annexation between
tho Provisional Government of Ha-wait
and tho Government of the
Unitod Statos of America. Thoso
fourtoon men wore elected under
and in accordance with (he provisions
of the annexation constitution
of 1801; the eloctors of Lyase fourteen
men were also in accordance
with tho terms of that annexation
constitution sworn supporters of
the annexation nuhetuo, aud numbered
nt tho time of tho election
about four thousand out of a possible
fourteen thousand; no other
persons wore allowed tho privilego
of voting, consequently thoro was
not any opposition,
A protest, protesting against tho
aunoxation of Hawaii to tho United
States of America, has beon presented
to tho Government of Hawaii by
a committee of Hawaiiaus,
tho People of Hawaii. That
protoit was submitted to the Senate,
The committee, to whom tho protest
was referred, recommended to
tho Sonate that the document bo
laid on tho table, because "in tho
opinion of tho committee," that in
refusing to ratify tho proposed
treaty, thoy would hot be acting for
tho benefit,' more Especially of the
native Hawaiian, that those islands
should become a part of the United
States. Thu3 tho Hawaiian ia completely
iguored by thoso who
to be acting for his best interests.
The "great editor" of tho Star, in
an editorial a couple of ovonings
ago, wrote thoso words: "when annexation
comes, tho Hawaiian, with
his educaliou aud intelligence, will
toko his proper and duo place as an
American citizen (wo will then all
bo American Indians) on porfeat
equality with any others who may
enter at tho same time" The oditor
acknowledges this fact then that tho
Hawaiian is educated aud intelligent,
why then is not tho subjeot
matter of annexation submitted to
him for consideration? Surely he
has much interost in tho matter if
not more as thoso who aro acting
independently of him. It cannot
bo, that ho may bo too educated
and too intelligent to couBidor such
a, momentous quostiou.
The truth of tho matter is, that
noither the Star editor, tho fourteon
mombors of tho annexation Senate,
nor tho government, wish tho Hawaiian
to have any voice whatever
in tho consideration of the subjeot
of annexation. They know perfectly
well, that tho Hawaiian is educated
and intelligent enough to know
for himself what ho considers to bo
the best for his own interests, hence
tho refusal of the government and
the Senate to cousidor his protest
against tho policy of annexation.
Thoy aro afraid to submit the question
to tho Hawaiian.
It has beon stated by tho Star
oditor, that "every consideration has
boon given to the Hawaiian, aud
that his lot is better under tho republic
than over it was undor tho
monarchy. What consideration has
boon shown to tho Hawaiian in tho
matter of annexation, a matter which
to him is of vital importance! Nono
whatovor, he is totally disregarded.
Under tho monarchy, he had a
country which ho could rofer to as
"my country," and under which government
ho had a voice in political
affairs; but, at tho prosent day his
country is controlled by a
of usurporo under which he is
disfranchised. Truly his lot is not
any bettor now.
The Star editor has pen pictured
imaginative scouob of desolation aud
ruin if tho annexation scheme is defeated.
Why does ho not inngiue
a scone showing the etlacta of annexation;
is his mind blinded aud
biased by tho Almighty dollar that
ho cannot soo but only oue way?
Yet, this same editor has, withiu tho
last threo years, remarked that, "if
there was a possibility of the return
of tho monarchy he would favor the
After annexation tho picture will
bo something like this: Theso islands
will bo overruu with worthless
poplo of low order looking for work,
if they cannot obtain work thoy will
rob, anil perhaps murder. Competition
in nil branches o( business,
Tho wages of the dock laborer, tho
clerk, the artisan, in faot of ovory
wago earner will bo reduced. Tbo
sincerity of tho loud-mouthed annexationists
must well be doubted.
Tho profosional classes will have
competition; tho prosent inter-island
steamship companies w'll
have to compoto with other companies
in tho freighting aud passenger
traffic, rates will be reduced,
consequently the dividends will
grow less; tho wages of tho plantation
laborer will be higher, as Asiatic
labor will not bo obtainable the'
being excluded by tho laws of tho
United States, hence leps divideudi
from sugar production, and so on,
with every other branch of business.
Thero will uot bo room for all, somebody
will moot with desolation and
ruiu. Who will it be? That is tho
scene of "after' aunoxation." Yet,
the Star editor and tho Committee
of Foreign Relations iu tho Senate
of Hawaii, are recommending the
annexation of Hawaii to tho United
States for tho bonofit of the
