Auditor THE VISITING COMMISSIONER Commissioner Mount has arrived and is welcome to Honolulu. He will find that the situation here is precisely what it was reported to be by the envois 6f,the Provisional government. The longer he stays in Hawaii, the more deeply he delves into the political life and history of these islands, the more clearly he comprehends the causes which led to the revolution, the more familiar he makes himself with the strategic and commercial importance to his country of this greup, the more certain he will be to take the side of annexation, The Star has no misgiv ings about Mr. Blount. It knows his record and his environments at home. To whom, more than to a man who has taken part in the comflict between Caucasian civilization and negro rule in the South, could the friends of Christian and orderly government in these islands appeal with friore certainty of apprecia tive and sympathetic hearing ? THE ROYAL BOUNTIES. In ordinary circumstances there would be no excuse, under such a government and in such an era as this, to pay Mrs. Dominis and Miss Cleghorn the salary of a Queen and the pension of a Princess. They are earning noth ing from the public and they represent a discarded government out of which, in times past, they wrested enough of this world's goods to make them com fortable for life. As a mere matter of business and equity such use of the people's money as is being made in their behalf would be inexcusable if not offensive and illegal. It would be well, however, before any pressure is brought to bear upon the Provisional government to cut off these stipends, to make sure that they are not being paid at the suggestion of the United States government. There is news abroad that the Harrison ad ministration is at the bottom of the whole business. AVe are told that a letter was received some weeks ago from Secretary Foster in which he said that the Queen had gained a dangerous amount of sympathy in America from the course of the government in refus ing her envoys passage on the Claudine and in wresting from her what was pop ularly believed to be her private crown land holdings ; whereupon it would be good politics to give her no further cause of complaint on the score of revenue. We can well believe that the wisdom and foresight of the dominant ' party will, in the light of this e.xplana tion, be lenient in its interpretation of the government's course. The econo mists may be sure that, when annexa tion is made certain, as it surely will be the relict of the late Mr. Dominis and the daughter of Collector Cleghorn will be put on an exact level, as regards the public treasury, with other unoffi cial Hawaiian?, THE FUTURE OF HAWAIIANS. We suspect are there many Ha- waiians and not alone of the sterner sex who consider the American de velopment of these Islands to be fraught with consequences unfavorable to themselves in a social way. We beg to assure all such persons that there is not the slightest reason for Hawaiians to expect less social consideration, but rather more, when Hawaii shall take its place in the Union. No worthy Hawaiians will take the back seat then, however it may be with any who in the past have crowded themselves into a kind of no tice which no self-respecting person can enjoy, Among the early Mexican families of California prior to its entry into the Union, does any one ever hear of loss of social prestige or in fluence ? But our gentle Hawaiian pleads the flag, the Hawaiian flag, we can't bear to lose that I When Hawaii enters the Union, its flag is not lost, it re mains as its own territory or state flag, but as a representative and symbol of mmeasurably greater strength and per ntanence. In fact, one great difficulty with the average Hawaiian, and the opponents of annexation lose no opportunity to increase it, is that he does not know the meaning of an independent state in the American Union and has not learned how securely the rights of 11a waii while a territory may be entrusted to the U. S. Constitution and to the kind and degree of home rule which Congressional action will establish. THE CIVIL SERVICE. We can understand the cmbarass ment under which President Dole and his advisers labor in the matter of the civil offices, some of which the Queen's appointees occupy and all of which the friends of the reform government wish to possess. It goes without saying that the powers that be want to have their government run smoothly so as not to withdraw their minds from the prob lems of annexation; and it is perhaps natural that they should hesitate about discharging tried and competent men and putting experimental officers into power. Still it must be remembered that there are as good fish in the sea as ever were pulled out of it and that with care excellent citizens, who are in full sympathy with liberal and republican ideas and with the Provisionabpolicy, could be had for the subordinate posts. It is not neccessary nor would it be desirable, to make an instantaneous clean sweep; but where a man is fitted for a position which an avowed royalist holds, what is there to say against his having it or at least the promise of it within a reasonable time ? The govern ment would be stronger in the house of its friends if it would undertake to do as well by its supporters as the Queen did by hers. We hope that at least a beginning will be made towards reform and that at an early day. The royalists rejoiced too soon over the report that President Cleveland had ordered Commissioner Blount to withdraw the Boston's men and haul down the American flag. According to the latest telegrams the news sent from here by the correspondents about British meddling in Hawaiian matters, led the President to modify his pur pose and give Mr. Blount a wider latitude. We risk the prophesy that American prestige in these islands will not be hurt by anything the Commis sioner will do. He is quite an Ameri can himself. The business management of the Star has been put in the hands of Mr, Wm. P. Tildcn, a man of qualifying ex perience who will, as rapidly as possi ble, organize the business routime of this office. Until a counting room is provided on the first floor of the Friend building he will be found in the editor ial rooms in the upper story. A repre sentative of Mr. Tilden will soon begin anactiveonvass for subscribers. Those who want the paper at once may call at the office and leave their names or order a copy by telephone. ROYAL SALARIES. The Amounts Still Paid to the Ex-Queen and Princess. For some time there has been street talk regarding the amount of the stipend to Liliuokalani, and more or less speculation has been indulged in as to its continuance. Inquiry into the facts shows that the ex Queen is receiving an allowance from the Provisional Government amounting to $1250 a month. The fund for paying this allowance has been created by transferring the remainder of $20,000 of the old appropriations for the queen's salary, from Nov. 30, 1S92, to March 31, 180.1, to the hands of the Executive Council. The transfci was made by resolution, which declared it to be a discretionary allowance sub ject to discontinuance upon vote of the Executive Council. me Government is, in the same manner, paying the monthly salary of $833, or $10,000 a yeir, to the order of the Princess Kaiulani; but it is un dcrstood that the appropriation from which it is being paid, is drawn upon entirely at the discretion of the Exe cutive. The appropriation of $4000 traveling expenses for the Princess, was cut off, as has also the salary of the ex-Queen s chamberlain. It is stated on good authority that these bounties are paid at the instance of the U. S. government which does not want the American public to get in the way of feeling that the ex Queen and the Princess are being imposed upon, it is said that great sympathy for both was roused in the United States by the refusal of the Provisional government to let Paul Neumann go to America on the Uuudine and by the report that the revenues of the crown lands were unjustly segregated. It would never do, Secretary Foster thought, to expunge the royal civil list in the present state of feeling. The Star can be found at the news stands.

Thd Star office was a busy scene of preparation yesterday, while the forcmnn was attempting to solve the vexed problem of doing four days work in twenty-four hours. The feat was ac complished, but it caused some delay, and it was between five and six o'clock before the press started. By that time a large crowd of expectant customers was waiting, and the first several hun dred papers were snatched from the press as rapidly as printed. livery body seemed desirous to secure first copies and for over half an hour the delivery boys could not get enough papers to start the routes. The publication of the paper has been received with the greatest enthu siasm, and it is certain no journalistic enterprise started in Honolulu for many years has had such hearty suppor as has been given the Star. The Advertiser receives the new paper with compliments as follows : " The new evening paper, The Haw aiian Star, made its initial bow last evening. It was well received by the general public. Its typographical ap pearance is neat -and nttractivi. Its editorial columns contained timely and well-written articles on the question of annexation. The local columns cover ed the entire field, and take it all in all it was a first-class local newspaper and a credit to its promoters. Long may the Star shine. THE ANNEXATION CLUB. It Gets a Big- Re-enforcement of Whites and Natives. Since early this morning, and es pecially since the telephones announced the arrival of Commissioner Blount,' the corps of clerks at the Annexation Club headquarters, have been kept on the jump registering new mem bers' names. The ri It already contains over 1,800 names, or a majority of all the registered votes cast at the last general election on the Island of Oahu. To-day's signatures amounted to over 350 names at three o'clock, 100 of them being native Hawaiians. In all over 500 natives have thus far signed the roll. Over 200 applicants, mostly natives and half-whites under twenty years of age, were sent away by the Committee during the day. It is believed that within a week the roll will contain 2,000 names.
