SHOULDER TO SHOULDER.
Tho annexationists in Hawaii are
getting more and more deapnrate as
thoy see tho change of sentiment in
tho United States. They have, as a
laet rosource, invented some
yarna about a "split" in the
camp of the anti annexationists, and
they prophecy in an off-handed way
that the. Hawaiians will shortly
come out as full-fledged annexationists
having found out the
duplicity of their "white" friends
Again tho wish is father to tho
thought. Thero has not boen and
thero is not tho slightest 'Jsplit"
amorjgtUe pooplo who stand shoulder
to shoulder' in their struggle to
preservo the autonomy of Hawaii
and defond their standing as an independent
nation against the infamous
encroachment of unscrupulous
adventurers. Nn member of
tho groat Hawaiian societies has for
a moment wavered in his allegianco
to the declarod patriotic principles
of tho political organizations. Difference
of opinion may have occurred
in regard to tho advisability of
a commission to Washington, or
in regard to tho choice of delegates.
All political parties meet with friction
in matters of management and
details; tho great principles, which
are tho cause of tho existence of political
organizations aro not affected
on account of potty differences of
opinion in regard to minor points,
Tho Hawaiians do not want
and no argument cau alter
tho fact. Mr. Thurston may lecturo
in Washington, and ho may suoer at
and scorn the Hawaiiaus; he dares
not publicly state that tho people
of these islands, which ho foolishly
dnsirej to turn over to tho United
Statos; approve of tho proposed
The handful of people clamoring
for ahuoxation.in Hawaii will have
a very rough awakening if their alleged
object should be obtained,
Our law-abiding oommunitios would
disappear; TTawaii would become
tho Paradise of tho lawless
and instead of law and order
(and our celebrated good swords)
we will encounter the same "wild"
experience as that "enjoyed" by tho
territories of tho woolly West.
Tho reasons of the Hawaiians and
their friends to oppose annexation
may bo "sentimental" only, thoy aro
good enough, howovor, to support
tho unsurmouutablo barriers wbioh
now and always will stand between
annexation and tho People of Hawaii,
FORBID THE BANNS.
The Advortisor recently printed a
loiter writton to tho N. Y. Tribune
by Frederick W. Seward, in support
of tho scheme for tho annexation of
Hawaii by the United States. Mr.
Seward's principal claim to fame is
based upon tho fact that ho is tho
Ron of his houorod father. If ho
ha9 other claims wo (do not know of
them, aqd can only plead ignorance
in case wo wrong the gentleman. In
roading his lottor wo aro impressed
with tho belief that he writos from
tho standpoint of a partisan; that,
he is entirely oblivious of tho fact
that national principles aro being
'violated and honored traditions
Mr. Seward is quite happy in-the
opening paragraph of his lottor,
wherein ho likens tho allianco of the
two countries to that uf the joining
in matrimony of a man and a woman
The paragraph reads: "One of tho
most improssivo features of tho
marriago sorvico is that whon tho
clergymau makes a sulomn pause
after saying, 'If any man can show
just, cause why they may not lawfully
be joinod together, let him
now apeak, or else hereafter forever
hold his peado.' " He says that Congress
paused during tho consideration
of the troaty, putting off final
action until December next, in order
to give any person tho opportunity
to show just cause why annexation
may not bo consumated.
This is very effective, but vory
damaging to Mt. Seward's case.
Mr. Seward may not, however, be
awaro that the lady in the case has
never desired the alliance; that she
has noted her protest; that her abductors
admit receipt of thdVrotdst;
that the heartless abductors insist
on tho allianco because it will improve
their ostate, not hers; that
tho next friends of the lady in tho
case have also memorialized tho
.clergyman, showing just cause why
the marriagj should not bo
If the olorgyman
insist on proceeding with the
ceremony, despite the protest of tho
lady and nor ftionds, ho U the accomplice
of the abductors in tho
ravish nmut of fair Hawaii hei. To
make the case ten fold worse. against
tho would-ho groom, and tho clergyman,
it caunot be denied that but
for his agency tho abductors could
not have Secured tho person of the
The Independent having full
knowledge of tho infamy of the intended
allianco forbids the banns
and so wo believe would William H.
Seward's son if he knew" tho facts.
