It will be found
that a groat mnuj' "most enthusiastic
supporters" of tho filibusters
havo changed thoir minds whim
tho Senate votes aro polled. Annexation
lies travol far and fast, but
calm and impartial investigation is
snowing thorn under somewhat
rapidly, whilo tho glacial storm of
truth is brooding more throatingly
over them day by day. All tho
nefarious tricks aro being exposed
one by one and a torrunt of disgust
will sweep away, in tho estimation
of the Amoriuan people, the men
uhose treachery is bated alone on
mil fish motives. We need not hasten
tho day of retribution for it is unar
enough at hand.
TWO TRUE FRIENDS.
Tho uuscrnpulou3 iiiannei in
which the hired ageuta of tie an
nexationists has disseminated falsehoods
and barefaced lies in tho
United States is being uliosvn up
more aud rnoro every day. Senators
aud Congressmen havo visited tho
islands recently to see aud hear for
theraeelvos what tho true conditions
of the islands and the genuine i sentiments
of tho pooplo aro.
The resultB of thoir investigations
have been invariably the same. That
is, they havo realized that the agents
of the Hawaiian Government in the
United States have thrown dust iu
tho eyes of tho American people
and of tho American Government
Senator Pottigrow, in a speech at
Haili Ohurch iu Hilo, where ho aud
ex-Senator Dubois addressod over
1000 nativo Hawaiians, said:
"Much misrepresentation has been
made iu tho United States with regard
to how the native Hawaiian
looked upon this question. I had
supposed when I camo that many of
your peoplo wero in favor of annexation,
because it had been so represented,
but I havo talked with every
ono who would talk with me, aud I
have failed to find a native Hawaiian
who was not oppospd to annexation
to tho United Statee, and in
favor of your Govornmeut."
Senator Morgan, as a coutra3t to
Mr. Pettigrow, dooliuod to look into
tho true state of affairs uhou ho
visited the islauds as tho guest of
tho Annexation Olub. He knew
that Thurston aud company's statements
iu regard to Hawaii wore lios
from pno out! to tho other, but ho
was not man enough to listen to the
"other Bide." Nothing could oliango
his mind, said the antiquated Senator
from Alabama, using tho argument
of the Bourbons and tho
Senator Pettigrew as a truo aud
honest man used these words:
I think you are all of ono mind
anyhow; and T think you should
havo a voiuo iu tho' matter of tho
Governmout of these islands; that
is a matter of justice,
1 shall toll what 1 havo seou and
what I hive heard iu tho Senate of
rim i n i.iiftfcn.i'hi .i
the United Status this winter when
this question comes up. I should
do liiai evi'ii if I wore opposed to
what you want, douo, but lam not
opposed to it.
Heuatrr Dubois who is another
tru', upright American spoke words
ulncli muet smart t'von the thick
skinned' biteliugs of those who want
to betray tho Uawtiian people, and
who claim that tlu Hawaiians aro
unfit for self government, indifferent
to tho future ol thoir country,
ami havo no "rights" in their native
laud. Mr. Dubois said:
In my judgment no fair man who
xvtm not actuated by personal considerations
of n)iiii) kind could go
among tho people of those inlands
and then deliberately go back to tho
great Amorican people aud say to
them: "Wo after acquiring our
rights of property in this beautiful
land, now ask you to aid us in taking
them away from these people
against their will."
You may havo been faulty in tho
administration of your Government
you may have committed many acts
of injustice. I think if that is so
that tho lat lour or five years will
havo had a chastening effect upon
you. I believe you will learu much
from this experience, these trials
and tribulations you havo gono
through. So far as I am concerned
unit-is I mistake human nature, you
will bo a much bettor Government
after this than you wero before; but
whether you are or not; this is your
land, it belongs to you, and so long
tm you are fair, so long as you treat
those whom you have invited to
como among you with fairness those
lands belong to, aud you aro responsible
to your God and yourselves
for the "ay in which you take
caro of them.
Every American who respocts tho
honor of his country must feel
proud over tho noljlo words of tho
two distinguished - statesmeu who
leave our shores to-day. The
feel grateful iu having at
last fouud two friends from the
Great Republic across tho sea, who
respect thoir rights and uphold tho
jii"t ct of thoir demand to be tfoated
as f'ee and independent meu.
Four Hawaiian gentlemen leave
for Washington to-day by tho Gaelic.
They havo been choson to represent
the Huvaiian people and on
their behalf enter a final protest
against the ratification of the annexation
treaty by Congress, Colonel
John Richardson, William Auld,
James Knulia, and D. Kalauokalani
are tho four delegates. The three
last namd o to preceut to the U.
S. Government a memorial opposing
anuoxatiou, which was recently
adopted at n largo public mass-meeting
aud also petitions agaiust
annexation which have been signed
by a largo number of Hawaiiaua.
Colonel Richardson represents specially
the people of Maui, but is also
tho bearer of important, dispatches
to tho Quoou from tho headquarters
of tho iu Honolulu.
This delegation who aro sacrificing
thoir business to serve thoir
country will -prove to tho American
people that the Hawaiians uow as
F.lwa3P stand up for thoir rights as a
nation, for the indepondonco of their
country. May tho missiou of the
delegates bo crowned with success,

When we remember recout events iu I

another of Ebon's tamo ducks, Mr.
President, aud havo the event properly

A TRIBUTE TO THK DEAD.
Wo havo been permitted to make
the following extracts from a private
letter written by a
."Ming Hawaiiau to a friend In this
city, which show tho feelings which
the loyal Hawaiians ontortain for
their late friend, Charles T. Gulick:
"I was sorry to hear that ono of
our strongest inou has again succumbed
to the inevitable and drop-pod
out of ranks without seeing the
ono thing that wo havo strived for
these four yoars. Ho has fought a
noble battlo, and though tho ond of
the issue was not for him to see,
still in ono sense of the word ho has
won against all odds. I seo for myself
how wo Hawaiians could take
the stand wo aro taking to-day. But
for a haole, aud a missionary's sou at
that, I cannot see it so well. And
if there is such a thing as a missionary's
son on our side, I must bow my
head in reverence to Jhat man aud
say ho is a friond indeed. Such is
tho way I feel for our departed
friond, Charles. T. Gulick. May God
reward his faithful soul, and may
tho good work ho has left undone

eo workers) be carried on to tho
