After reviowing tbj.'ro)or(s of nu
accurate full and impartial investigation,
the lato Bon Walter Q.
Gresham, then Sooretary of State,
submitted to President Olevoland
his conclusions rogarding tho
inattor. Ho said:
Should not the groat wrong doun
to a feoble but independent State
by au abuse of the authority of tho
United States be undone by restoring
tho, legitimate Government?
Anything short of that will not, I
respectfully submit, satisfy the
Can tho United States consistently
insist that other nations shall respect
the independence of Hawaii
while not respecting it themselves?
Our Government was the first to
recognize the itidependonco of tho
islands and it should be tho last to
acquire sovereignty over them by
force and fraud.
In his "message" on Hawaiian
Affairs to Congross on tho 18th of
December, 1893, Piesident Cleveland
Believing, thorefore, that tho
Unitod Statos oould not, under the
circumstances disclosod annex tho
islands without justly incurring tho
imputation of acquiring them by unjustifiable
methods I shall not again
submit tho troaty of aunoxatiou to
the Senate for its-consideration. In
view of tha faot that both tho Queen
and the Provisional" Government
had at ono lime apparently acquiesced
in a reference of tho entire cato
to tho Unitod Stales Government,
and considering tho further fact
that in any event tho Provisional
Government by its own declared
limitation was ouly "to oxist until
terms of union with the United
Statos of America Irwo been negotiated
and agreed upon," I hoped
that after tho assurance to the members
of that Government that such
union could not be consummated, 1
might compass a poiceful adjustment
It is that, through tho
dilatoriuess of the Unitod States
Representative, and by tho notion of
U. S. Senate in reooguizing, tho so-called
liepublia of Hawaii, that
President Cleveland was prevented
from consummating his policy of
"a peacoful adjustment of tho difficulty."
The of the treaty of
annexation to the Senate, virtually
the Hawaiian controversy.
The status of tho Hawaiian
is exactly as it was on tho 17th
of January, 1893. Queon
surrender of authority, on the
17th of Jauuary, 1893, "until such
time as tho Government of tho
United States, upon the facts being
presented to it, undo the notion of
its Representative," should again bo
When the Congress of tho United
States meets next month for its
annual deliberation on national
affairs, tho faot will bo made known
to that Body that not only do tho
Hawaiiaus protest against the 8ohom,o
of annexation, but that they are not
in sympathy with nor do they favor
or aro they willing to loud their
support to tho present govornmont
in Hawaii. Congross may pay somo
attention to tho protests of tho
Quoon and of tho Hawaiian poople
and for other reasons may docido
adversely to tho passage of tho
troaty of annexation. Whother
Congross in tho event of its rejecting
the treaty of annexation, will
offer recommendations or
to the Presidont regarding tho
offootiug a solution of tho Hawaiian
mattor, is yet to bo seen.
It may be said, that after suuh a
decision of Congross the United
Status Government will have no
further jurisdiction in the matter.
Tho United States Government was
so drawn into tho scheme ,of dethroning
tho Quoen and hor Government
by the-act of its Representative,
and lately has been drawn
into other Hawaiian complications
by the Hawaiiau Govornmont, that
it iiitiat havo some voice in the sot-tic
nont of tho Hawuiii.n muddle.
L may also be that the United
States having recognized tho
Government of Hawaii, cannot interfere
with our local affairs, as such
au act would be au act of war against
a friendly nation. In January, 1893,
tho action of the United Statos Minister
in landing troops from the U.
S. S. Boston, and deposing tho Sovereign
and overthrowing the constitutional
monarchical government nf
tho Hawaiian Islands, was most certainly
an unprecedented hot of war,
and an act without the eauctiou of
Congross. The revolutionary government
being then tho government
do fnoto, was recognized by tho now
administration of tho United Statos
(March 1893) for tho reason so as to
be in a position to conduct diplomatic
intercourse with the existing
government, and thereby bo enabled
to consider the subject matter of annexation;
tho protest of the Quoen
against tho action of the United
States Minister; and also, further,
to be able to ascertain tho true
status of the government that was
asking for annexation.
It may also bo argued that tho
status of the Provisional Government
was changed, when in July,
1891, it became a permanent govern'
ment under the namo of "Tho Republic
of Hawaii." Can it be considered
a permanent government?
Article 32 of tho Constitution of
1891 proves otherwise. The ratifica
tion of a troaty of annexation by
representatives of the Hawaiian
Government, also proves that tho
Govornmont is only to exist "until
terms of union," etc. It in the same
Provisional Government 1 1 1 1 1 1 ti r an.
Under tho existing circumstances,
it surely then cannot be expected
that tho Congress of the United
Statos will accopt an offer of annexation
from a government which
came into existence in the mam er
in which the present government iu
Hawaii was ushered in. Nor can it
be supposed that that body will
ignore tho claims of the legal subjects
of the country, or allow the
protests of tho Hawniians to remain
Iu tho event of the rejection of
the troaty of annexation by the
Congress of t' e United Statu, tho
term of authority of tho present
government iu Hawaii, According to
the wording of its proclamation,
would then expire It should immediately
relinquish the roius of
government, or else endeavor to establish
a government which would
bo satisfactory to all political factions.
That a stable government
which will roceive tho support of
tho legal subjeots of' tho couutry
can be established, there is no doubt.
Tho mothod by which the constitutional
Govornmont of Hawaii was
overthrown has no procodont. Tho
Government of tho United States
will bo justified iu exerting its influence
nnd'assistuuee towards the settlement
of tho Hawaiian difficulty,
aud Ben that a peacoful adjustment
of tho controversy is accomplished.
It offered its assistance to Venezuela,
it has offered to assist iu the settle
mont of the trouble between Spain
and Cuba, it cau, with propriety,
also offer to assist the Hawaiiau.
