Senator Pettigrew, Just Returned,
Doubts tbe Wisdom
Dubois Strongly Opposod Would Bo
the Worst Sort of Folly, Ho Says
Sould Bo Submitted to Hawaiian
Vote Amorican Thoro
Against It Oommlttoo of
in Ban Francisco with
Protest Start for Washington
San FnANcisco, Cal., Nov. 23.
Former Senator Dubois of Idaho,
has returned from Hawaii convinced
that it would bo the worst sort of
folly to annex the islands. When Mr.
Dubois was a mombor of the Senate
ho favored annexation. He said to
The World correspondent to-night:
"A very large proportion of tho
sugar and coffee planters in Hawaii
aro not Americans, but English,
Scotch, Germans, &c. No Americana
aro employed as laborers on the
plantations. Ohinose, Japanese and
Portuguese do the manual work.
White men never do this kind of
labor in tropical climates.
"There are 109,000 people in the
islands. Of these only S08G are Americans.
There aro 40,000 Japanese
and Chinese (about equally dividod)
5000 Portuguosp, 40,000 Hawaiiaus
and part Hawaiiaus and about
5000 British and Germans.
"Nearly all tho Hawaiiaus aro
earnestly if not bitterly opposed to
annexation. They have signed a
remonstrance against it, which they
have sent to Washington.
"The Hawaiiaus will have several
representatives in Washington to
present their objections when Congress
"Of the 308G Americans in Hawaii
a large number some claim half
are opposed to the scheme.
"Our Government should submit
the question to a vote of tho islanders.
Almost any kind of voto will
do. Chinese aud Japanese could bo
excluded or none but white foreigners
and Hawaiians might be allowed
to vole, or only Hawaiians might bo
given the right it is their oountry
that is being disposed of and ordinarily
they would have something
to say about it.
"UnlesB somesuoh plan is adopted
constant troublo would follow annexation,
aud wo would be compelled
to keep army and navy on
the islands to maintain tho government
wo had forced on the people.
"If the question is left to a voto
of almost any sort there will bo no
annexation, for such a policy, pursued
against an almost unanimous
popular protest, would bo considered
an outrage against all our history
Senator Pettigrow of South Dakota,
who reached hero with former
Senator Dubois, has declined to discuss
the question, but in an interview
while ho was iu Hawaii ho is
quoted as saying:
"As the matter now stands I hardly
know what my course in tho
Seiiate will be. It will be determined
after further thought. If, however,
the same proposition that cauio
before us iu 1893 should again arise
I should unhesitatingly opposo it."
In a recent speech nt a meoting of
HawaiintiB iu Hilo, Hawaii, Mr.
"Wo came to your island for tho
purposo of asking what the people
who live in this country thought
about tho question of annexation of
the islands, and also to soe what we
could learn about the desirability of
annexing these islands if we found
the peoplo wauted them annexed to
tho Unitod States. I supposed that
many of your people were in favor
of anuuxation, because it has been
so reported and talked of by many;
but 1 have failed to find a native
Hawaiian who is not opposed to annexation
to tho United States and in
favor of your own Government.
"I Bhall tell what I have seen and
what I have hoard in tho Senate
when tho question comes up. I
should do that oven if I were opposed
to what you want done but I
am not opposed to it."
Hawaii has sent four of her representative
men to plead with tho
Unitod States against annexation.
These men, forming a committee
unique in the history of modern
nations, have arrived here and will
start to-morrow for Washington.
The committee consists of two
Hawaiians aud two half
Hawaiians. Tim leador is James K.
Kaulia, President of tho Hawaiian
Patriotic League. There are besides
David Kalauokalani, the leader
of the socond Hawaiian society,
which differs only iu its opinion on
local matters from the Patriotic
League; William Auld, who is tho
possessor of considerable property
on the Island of Oahu, and John
Richardson, a lawyer, from the Isl
and of Maui, whose command of
English makes him the spokesman
of tho party.
"Wo aro going to Washington,"
said Mr. Richardson to-night, "in
of inducing the President
and the Committee on Foreign Relations
to listen to our side of the
question. From tho documents in
our possesion wn think we can con-
vinco any fair-minded person that
the grout majority of the natives of
Hawaii are opposed to annexation.
"If, from our showing, tho United
States is uoi assured of this foot wo
