Honolulu, Dec. 4, via Victoria, B.
C, Dec. 13. Since the arrival of the
steamer Warrimoo on the 26tb ult., po
litical events have followed each other
with startling rapidity, When the
Warrimoo arrived with Cleveland's ul
timatum, the royalists were jubilant,
and the annexationists at once began
to carry out previous plan for forcible
resistance in case tbe China, which ar
rived three days later, brought Instruct
ions to Minister Willis for the reitora

the United States troops. Within

assembled at tbe drill shed behind the i being examined 7
executive building. The meeting was
short but wildly enthusiastic, tbe spirit
of 1770 prevailed. Those who heard
the ringing cheern which welcomed the
speeches of President Hatch, of tbe an
nexation club ana the presentation ioi
lowing the resolutions knew lb. super
lor forces of the United States would be
short lived. Since me mass meeting
enthusiasm among the royalUta lias
been fluctuating and their clearest
headed leaders admit the success of res
toration depends upon tbe armed pro
tection of tbe monarchy of tbe Uulted
States The following resolutions were
adopted by the mass meeting: "Re

regret the recommendation of tbeaecre

tbe president to restore tho monarchy
lately existing in Hawaii. We con

rul to re submit to the senate the
treaty of union pending between tbe
two countries and also his assumption
that tho provisional government sub
mitted the question of its continued ex
istence to arbitration nfihn mMo...
or any other power. Wo will support
to the best of our ability the provisional
government in resistluir auv attar
which may be contrary to the usage of
uuod3." ine adoption of the rcsolu
tlons was preceded by speeches by many
-i mu ieamng citizaus, the chief of
wuich was President Hatch of the an
nexation o ub.
aatcu saw: We are confronted by
tho declaration of Becretary Gresham
that royalty must be restored and our
government destroyed. His represen
tative has given us au opportunity to
bo heard before tbe final action Is taken.
At present we are proceeding merely
upon newspaper reports received here
and which we certainly have a ritht
to discuss. We do not know what ac
tion will be taken nor how. Certaluly
any action taken by the congress of tbe
United Stales cannot be resisted bv
anybody in this community. Wo do
not meet here tonight to deny tho pow
er of the Uulted States, nor to villlfy
those at present iu chargo of the Uulted
8tates government, (Applause) but we
meet with the hope that our words will
be heard by congress.
There are ietalu features in Gres
ham's letter to the president which
show he was proceeding upon a false
aasuuipuou. ,Lret ns nop'the distin
guished secretary has b,n misin
formed. Now ''the &lef among the
false assumptions IsOno whlab seems to
underlie the whole letter, that thero
bad been submitted to the president of
the United Stalw. for arbitration tbe
question whether or not we had a right
to establish a government in this coun
try. Gentlemen", I challenge that as
sumption (cheeniaod cries of "you are
right"); tbe aeoumptinn Is false in every
respect. First, lias the provisional gov
ernment submitted to the deolalou of
anybody Its right to exist? No, not a
wont or act could be produced in sup
portof that contention. From the very
nature jof. things, the government
which started In, revolution though
now uoveroment de Jure and de facto
could not submit the question of tho
legality of Its existence through any
arbitration became its right lay iu its
might. Having satisfied our conscience
as to the justness of our cause wo de
pend upon our might and are answer
able to no other power. I brand as
fa'se tbe claim that we put in issue the
question whether or tiot we were pro
ceeding legally in overturning the cor
rupt and rotten monarohy.
Fecond, has the president of the Uni
ted States up to this time and point
pretended to have been acting In a Jud
icial capacity ? I say his acts do not
Justify that assumption. An arbitrator
or Judge would not interfere with the
existing fiUtm. On gaining his seat
the president of tho United States Im
mediately lowered tho American flag
aud thereby changed the status of tho
parties. That was not an act of a
Judge or a gentleman. Agalu, has he
notified anybody that he was proceed
ing with a Judicial Investigation ? Has
he given any notlco that a bearing
would be held on such a date? Has he
notified any body that witnesses were
Has he given any
body opportunity to cross-examine
tbese witnesses or to confront them ?
Now, we do not ne-d the acknowledge
ment of that distinguished Judge, now
secretary of state, to know that no arbi
tration could stand for a moment for
law. However Insignificant the matter
which was conducted ex parte without
opportunity to be heard, gentlemen, it
can hardly be contended that tbe pro
visional government and we represent
lue tbe supporters of that government
have submitted our rights to exist to
Col James H. DIount of Geo-gla.
I challenge the right of the chief ex
ecutive of that great nation, of his own
notion, to undo auy act of any of his
pred.Ctsors (great applause). Congress
may do it, congress has tbe full power,
but Grover Cleveland has no more right
Ippallvor morally, to undo an act of
Benjamin Harrison, than ha has to un
do auy act of Abraham Lincoln. Rut,
waiving all tbese considerations there
remains this fundamental one that no
one court of arbitration would have tbe
right to Igoore the great quention at is-
That U, whether or not Llllnuklani
bad violated tbe constitution aud had
thrown It tothodos sh'I had put her
self beyond tbe imte and protection of
tbe laws, to ignore all that and utciue
this great iue upon pure technicality
as to whether or not Bteveni recognized
the power of this community (We min
ute too soon or not,wa not It the pow
er of tbe Judge? Ll " hold the presi
dent to the true Issm aud then, If legal-
ly constltued by tho power which has
right under the constitution to declare
war, overpower us we will go down, on
our colors flying and with ao mltrepre.
After the undecided character of tho
news received by tbe China, tho nnln. I
Ion prevailed until tho arrival or tho
Australia, that the Instructions would
be received by a latter vessel for Imme
diate restoration. Pending tho Aua
trallas coming several Important cabl
net and council meetlnsrs were hold
and it was determined to meet tho pro
posed restoration monarohy by the
combined foroes of tho government.
