The Hawaiian Star Publishing As
sociation has placed the responsibl
Editorship of this paper in my hands,
and has employed Walter G Smith
staff correspondent of the San Fran
cisco Chronicle, to act as Managin
Editor. Mr. Smith has been connect
ed with some of the leading journal
of the United States, and is a news
paper man of experience and an an
nexationist whose pen has already done
the cause acceptable service.
Jno. S. McGrew.
This journal is established by th
mechanics, tradesmen and professiona
men of Honolulu in the interests of
good government fur the Hawaiian
The founders and supporters of the
enterprise are ambitious to serve th
political, social and industrial welfare
of the country, and will, as a vital ci-n
dition of public order, business stability
commercial progress and pure adaiinis
trative methods, support the cause o
annexation to the United States.
While sustaining the Provisional
Government in such of its measures, as
may seem wise, necessary or prudent
this paper will not hesitate to diffur
from it or to criticise its couise when
over the demands of public well-bein
may be met by such a service.
Fidelity to the annexationist cause
with its obligation to be firm and un
yielding in the grapple with resisting
dogmas, does not blind the Star to
the fact that, in discussing themes o
highest national concern, courtesy, fair
ness and good nature should b
imposed upon the leaders of debate
This paper will not deal with Hawaiian
politics from the standpoint of personal
acrimony. To the deliberations of
sovereign people, summoned in the
midst of peril to decide momentous
issues, there must be invoked a spirit
of earnest and sober inquiry, of pa
triotic respect for law and of reasonabl
attention to the views of all well
meaning men.
Apart from its character as a politico
journal the Star will be, so far as the
limitations of island life and distance
from the centers of the world's activity
shall permit, a modern progressiv
newspaper one which shall keep
abreast of all the events that enter
into the sum of Hawaiian history and
progress and into the cognate develop
ment of America and Polynesia.
It serves the purpose of those wh
are leading the native Hawaiians astray
in politics to declare that annex?'.lon
ists desire to withhold civil rights from
men of Polynesian blood. Unfortun
ately, the hot resentments of a month
or tw ago found relief in such a threat
but the lapse of time and calm study of
the American constitution have con
vinced rrjost thinking men that, if Ha
waii comes into the Union her peopl
will, eventually, receive the voting
The fifteenth amendment to the
United states Constitution reads as
Section i. The right of citizens of the
United State to vote shall not he denied or
bridged by the United States or by any
Mate on acc-.unt ol race, color, or previous
condition ol servitude.
That amendment is a charter of
equal 4-hts by which the negro of the
Southern cane fields, the Hungarian
peasant of the Eastern cities and the
of New Mexico and Arizona who
h or natura'iztion obtained
'Tcuohip, is empowered to
i and vei'fc The only
o the rule -.re against j
lunatics, convicts, irredeemable savage
like the reservation Indians, and Ori
entals who refuse to adopt the manners,
customs, politics, language and relig
ions of the country and are not fit
subjects for naturalization, To none
of these tabooed classes dues the Ha
waiian belong. His education, Christ
ianity and civilization are the boasts of
seventy years of cfT .ft on the part of
the American perple. He is the mental
and moral equal, to say the least of him,
of the enfranchised nr-gro. He reads,
writes and worships the Christian God.
The political rule his race has oxer
ciscd on these islands has been honor
ed by all the great powers in the per
sons i f their envoys and embassadors.
Fnni any point of view his claim upon
the suffrage cannot be argued down
without putting the letter and spirit of
the Americ n charter to an open shame
Perhaps in no better way can the
enlightened policy of the United
States towards the voting privilege bt
shown than by reciting the acts that
have conferred it upon the Creek,
Choctaw and Seminole Indians. These
are of enfranchised tribes of the Indian
Territory. So long as they were mur
derous savages they were kept under
restraint; but the moment they began
to cultivate the arts of peace they were
treated with a generosity and justice
that did not stop short of home rule.
To-day they have their own legislature,
courts, police and governing chiefs. Is
the Hawaiian likely to fare worse, in
view of the greater advances he has
made ?
It must m t be forgotten that annex
ation itstlf will not dispose of theques
tion of the elective franchise That
can be treated only by Act of Congress
for the simple reason that by the Con
stitution of the United States legisla
tion ci ncerning American territory em
inates from Congress and is not a part
of the treaty powers of the President
and Senate. Congress, being a popu
lar body, is accustomed to deal with
franchise questii ns in the populai
American way.
The Star, as an annexationist jour
nal, bids the natives of these islands be
of cheer. Under the hrot.d folds of the
American fl g there is no room for dis
tinctions of race and color at the bal
lot box. If there should be any tem
porary suspension of the franchise, due
to a desire to settle the Oriental issue
without friction as well as to the neces
sity f preparing a full code of laws, a
work which requires time and care, it
would be one that should include
whites as well as natives, Americans as
well as Polynesians, in its necessary
and remedial scope. In the end all
would share alike in the privileges and
immunities of citizenship.
It is common enough to propitiate
the Goddess Pele with presents of live
black pigs and strident roosters, but
when it conies to getting on the right
side of Uncle Sam by the same means,
the proceeding grows unique. Still the
experiment is to be tried. As may be
seen in our local columns the native
Hawaiian women intend to give the
Yankee commissioners a hookupu on
an even greater scale than the one
which turned the Charleston into a
barnyard two years ago. They will do
it in thexheerful hope that if Mr. Blunt,
General Schofield and Admiral Brown
are given pigs enough they will ex
change the Quten for them and put
her on the throne again. A fair ex-
change is said to be no robbery, but
likely enough the Commissioners, even
if their appetite for pork is good, will
hesitate on the brink of restoration.
However, it is nut best to prophesy.
Common geese saved Rome and if this
kingdom can be redeemed by the 00
cult aid of pigs and poultry by all means
let the thing be tried. It would be
worth knowing that with mankind in
the western hemisphere pretty general
ly opposed to royalty the pakcrs and
chickens are yet in favor of it.
The interview with Hon. C. A. Mac
Arthur of New Y rk, which appears
elsewhere in this impression, is worth
the careful reading which it will no
doubt get from members of all Ha
waiian parties. Col. MacArthur is a
veteran observer and is able, as few
men are, to mark the course of public
opinion in the Unittd States. When
he says that popular sentiment there
would swamp the Democratic party,
in case Mr. Cleveland should attempt
to haul down the American flag on
these islands, he states a fact which
finds verification in the instincts and
character of the Anicriran people, as
well as in the utterances of the New
York, Chicago, Philadelphia and San
Francisco press. It would be wise in
the rcstorationists to take council of
men like Col. MacArthur once in a
while, and give the kahunas a rest.
It is an idle thought which may
account for its prevalence in certain
quarters that deftitt t f the annexa
tionist movement would mi an a return
to monarchy In point of fact tegal
rule in Hawaii, like French rule in
Mexico ?nd Bomb n si vctiignty in
Brazil is dead and so deeply buried that
its resurrection, if it even happens, will
be on the other side f the globe.
The men who made the revolution of
1893 will not 1 f their own accord sur
render its fruits; and, the idea that thty
would bec.inpelWd to do so by the
Unittd States or that the American
government wou'd permit any other
11 ti n to use S'.ch compulsion, is plain
ly absurd and pi crile. Anntxationis
to reasonable minds, the manifest
destiny f these islands. If the Un ted
States should sec fit to defer action
upon the issue for a time, a continued
protector te would result. In tither
case the monarchy wi uld gain nothing,
and the sooner the ex Queen makes up
her mind to that and acce ts the logic
of the revolution, the better for her arid
for the country she pn fesses to 1 ve.
The most curious spectacle which
Hawaiian politics affords is that of
half-white leaders whose fine proper
ties ate mortgaged to the last acre, or
ganizing leagues against a policy which
would retrieve their fortunes ai d give
them wealth and influence t- be had
under no other political sinus. As
citizens of the United Sutes, with fur
tunes at their back and with a 1 yal
and devoted native following, men like
these might become, b ilh at Honolulu
and Washington, publicists of place
and reputation. Tin ir present course,
if successful, would mean sh' riff's salts
of all they have in the world and con
tinual discords, for the o-untry. Yet a
sentimental allegiance to a brumuingem
throne, a deposed Queen and a flag
that never stood for power at home
or strength abroad, keeps them from
grasping the prizes i f a great opportu
nity. Men never stood more in their
own light.
The first issue ( a newspaper is al
ways incomplete and the Star is no ex
ception to the rule. Many advertise
ments intended for Ihis number could
not be set in time, but will make iheir
appearance to-morrow and on the day
following. Within the next few days
the paper, in all its departments, will
be materially improved.
There are other great enterprises
besides the Oahu railroad which de
end on -the success of ai.mx.'tion. Is
there anything of equal or approximate
value that would come from its defeat?
We put the question to the fervid ora
tors of the Cummins league w h are
at liberty to retire to the ante room ar d
Three months after annexation the
Oahu railroad people would put $9,00,
000 in circulation heie. Within two
years and a half the amount would be
doubled. A stable government means
that all the avenues of Hawaiian
prosperity would be opened f.r the
common benefit.
Annexation means equal rights, ex
panded commerce, a trebhd population
and a return of good times. Royalty
stai.ds for a privileged class, stagnant
business and uneasy politics. There is
only one way f. r a patriot to go, whether
of native or white i.ncestry, and that is
towards the Unittd States.
The Japanese want Hawaii, no
doubt, but they stand about as much
chance of getting it ns a colony of
fighting wrens would to secure an island
on the moon.

The Question of the Hour.
Editor of the Star : The broad
fact that the final destiny of Hawaii is
incorpoiation with the United States
has not been denied by those now in
opposition to the measure. The only
excuse given for resistance is that the
time has not come, that the occasion is
yet inopportune for the proposed
change. i his is a familiar plea,
Any great change in matters sor ial,
moral or political, always lias us
opponenis and detractors. Consciva
tism, inertia, the lazy habit of m t wish
ing to face a problem, or whalever the
cause may be called, is characteristic ot a
large part of humanity. It is, in this
latitude, sometimes attributed to the
climate. However that may be the
time has corre in our opinion, and
now is, when no less radical a nieasuie
than annexation to the United States
is needed to save us from endless
political complication, or perhaps from
The measureless benefits to be
reaped by b,.th countries in the im
mediate and the distant future are nut,
perhaps, easily realized except by the
close student ot poltt cal history. 1 o
realize them take a map of North Paci
fic Ocean, with the western coasts of
North America and the eastern and
southern coasts of Asia! Draw lints
from the great commercial cities on
each coast to those of the other and
note how nearly these lints pass to ihe
Sandwich Islands. then get tellable
statistics regarding distances and com
merce, where will be found that, upon
the completion of an Isthmian, inter
oceanic canal, New York, Liverpool
and London will be brought within
from six lo eight days nearer the
eastern coast of Asia than by the
present route, through the Suez canal
Hawaii lies almost in a direct line be
tween the gnat commercial cities of
Asia and this projected waler way.
With a finished canal, a cable connect
ing us with the United Stales, both of
which will be accelerated, it not made
ap absolute necessity by annexation,
who cannot see the commi-rcial and
sir geiic importance of these islands.
Hong Kong alone has an import and
an export trade of six hundred millions
of dollars yearly. A large part i f this
must of necessity be turned into this
new channel. 1 hus Honolulu will be
come the center of this traffic, either
as a port of transit, or as one of dis
tribution, to say nothing of its growing
importance as a stopping place between
the western coast of Not lb America
and Australia. The long sought for
north-west passage will have been
realized. Is it possible that the United
Slates, with the proverbial astuteness
of her statesmen, her merchants and
her people generally, will let this
occasion pass? We do not, for a
moment, believe it. Then as lo our
selves, we speak not for, nor in behalf
of any one nationality. We hsi"e the
extreme of an heterogeneous "pula
tion. We ought to live toge ler in
peace and pull altogether, V have
not done this fur sevcral'yc is past.
It should most assuredly not lo so in
the future as an independnt state,
either republican or monarmcal. A
proteclorate would invo ve us in endless
complications and difficulties, both
internal and external. Union with the
strong, just, and great Republic is our
only safety. It would bring capital
and an indusfrh us, saving population
into the country. Contract labor, a
synonym for degraded labor, would be
abolished. A new impetus would be
given thus to production. Wages of
all classes would enhance The kith'
anas of Hawaiians would be doubled
or trebled in price. Our dead markets
would pulsate with life; our valleys
imile, our hill tops rejoice.
