Hawaiian Star Publishing Association. 1. S. McGrew, President, ir IlARrnELi, 1). V. Smith, -K. A. Jones, - John Emmfi.uth, Vice President - Secretary, - Treasurer . Auditor MR. STEVENS VINDICATED. The Star learns from excellent au thority that, in so far as Mr. CIcve land's wishes are concerned, Minister Stevens is at liberty to stay at his post until the Hawaiian incident is closed His retirement will be at his own op tion. Col. 131ount does not come to supplant or degrade the American minister or in any way to impeach his acts or criticise his motives and record If the Hawaiian royalists expected Mr. Cleveland to rebuke Mr. Stevens' course they were very credulous indeed, All that the Minister did during the memorable first days of the protecto rate, was in line with the instructions which Mr. Cleveland's Secretary of State gave to Minister Merrill under date of May 12, 1S87. Mr. 15ayard wrote: "American citizens in Hawaii must be protected in their persons and their property by the representatives of their country's law and power, and no internal dhcord' must be suffered to impair them. Your own aid and coun sel as well as the assistance of the officers of the government vessels, if found necessary, will therefore be promptly afforded to promote the reign of law and respect for orderly govern ment in Hawaii." Diplomatic language could not convey more positive autho rization to proceed as Mr. Stevens did in the emergency of last January. He acted strictly within the powers confer red upon his predecessor by Mr. Cleve land, and the latter could not censure the Minister without stultifying himself and his record. ANNEXATION AND SUFFRAGE. The first thing we want is annexation. The treaty between the United States and the Hawaiian Islands may be as brief as possible, omitting all such con ditions as would excite the antagonism of cither the House or Senate. Con gress will then exercise its Constitution al function in enacting the organic law under which a territorial government is framed and carried on. Questions of the elective franchise and the subjects which domestic legis lation must include will necessarily be covered in such organic act. These things, after annexation shall have been decided or agreed upon, will depend on the exhibition of good sense and the capacity for intelligent legislation made by this community, as well as upon the way in which these matters shall be presented both to Mr. Cleveland's ad ministration and to Congress. GUESTS OR CITIZENS? There are men who speak of them .selves, when opportunity offers, as "ugesls of the Hawaiian people." They have lived here for years, and have taken part in the social, business and political life of the country, and yet on certain occasions adroitly assume the role of guests, Intimating of course that some others should do the same. The retrogressive Hawaiian element catch on, and talk of hospitality, and " favors granted," and "no right to intermed die" and all this. This question will bear looking into, Of course tourists and travellers and such notabilities are in a sense guests, even if they pay their way. But the mass of the white population of these islands neither claim the immuni ties of guests, nor will they acknowledge the disabilities of such. When Kame- hameha once took into his service John Young and Isaac Davis, these men ceased forever to be guests. The ar rangement was mutually advantageous, and was typical of what foreigners and Hawaiians have been doing ever since. The latter were shrewd enough to see that they could not dispense with the work of the white man, even if so they desired. True, the missionaries were 'here 011 trial for a period, and by es pecial permission, but when the land was full of schools for reading and writ ing from one end to the other, and i when some of these teachers were es pecially requested to leach the first principles of free government, even they became a part of the nation, subject only to such restraints of courtesy as pertain to distinctive religious teaching. All along, for the past seventy years, those who have honestly settled down to work in this country and taken part in its fortunes, for better or for worse, have ceased to be guests, but have been members of the body politic, with all the duties, responsibilities and privileges of such. Whether voters or non-voters, they have held this relation. It has been a benefit, ten times a benefit to all classes in this little country that this relation should have been so broadly sustained. Where favors have been granted, there have been favors return ed. Moreover the working earnest class of Hawaiians are far more manly men than if any system of Asiatic exclusive ness had been established. Let us not hear any more of this guest argument against free speech and action. Whathvek may have been the feel ing in the United States in favor of a liberal pension to the ex-Queen, public opinion there would not go so far as to urge the propriety of it when the mon ey is being used to defeat the plans of the donors. That is to say, if Liliuo kalani is paying the way of the black' guard royal press of this city, and supporting the leagues which seek to overthrow the Provisional government then the latter ought to strike her name from the civil list. Such a course, supported by such a reason, would not be found fault with abroad among any fair-minded men or newspapers. Sym pathy for a deposed sovereign does not extend to a vengeful plotter against Hawaiian peace and American suprem acy. i'atkons of the Star who ate not served promptly with this paper be tween the hours of five and six p. m. will please notify this office. Every effort : 1 is iieing maac to organize a carrier service that will answer the demand of the reading public for quick and sure delivery. Within a day or two the management hopes to have the estab lishment in perfect running order. Unless Consular Agent l-urncaux can explain his course against the an nexation movement he is likely to hear something drop. The Provisional au thorities have brought his offense to the notice of the United States government and an investigation will follow. Should it appear that the charges against Mr. Furneaux arc indisputable the Hilo post will soon be ready for a new and more discreet and patriotic incum bent. The friends of 11. W. Wilcox have proposed him for the Consul General ship at San Francisco. Mr. Wilcox is an authority among the natives and half-whites and is a cordial and service able ally of the annexation movement, The estimation in which the public hold him was so well shown at the armory rally a week ago that the Pro visional government cannot go amiss in giving him a representative office. The Star's appeal for civil rights for Hawaiians was received by whites and natives alike with great favor. Whatever the original purpose towards the suffrage may have been, the motto now is liberty, fraternity and equality under the flag of a power which regards all men as having been born free and equal. Ir the organ of the hookupu party is serious in its desire to know what guarantees of equal, rights the an nexationists have to offer, the Star will take pleasure in referring it to the fifteenth amendment of the United States Constitution. Jimmie Robertson went on board the Rush to offer Col. Blount the use of the "Queen's" carriage. When Jim mie gets out of his present job he ought to be hired as Chamberlain to ; livery stable. ' Hack, Sir ? - Hack Take you to any part of town !" . . 1 he Koyausts say their cause is "looking up." That is what the fellow remarked about himself when he lay on ins back alter a misunderstanding with a bear. As financial backer of the Bulletin ana aoiomua iurs. JJomims nas no rl n r right to expect the Provisional Govern ment to keep her supplied with the necessary cash. The Bulletin should not be so im polite as to stop and discuss politics while the coroner is waiting for it to attend its own inquest. A New Building. J. W. Austin of Boston is plan ning the erection of a stone building on the site occupied by Gertz's shoe store on Fort Street. It will be used for safe deposit purposes. The build ing material will be blue lava rock and the structure will be an ornament to the city. BY AUTHORITY. FOREIGN OFFICE NOTICE. 1'oREioN Office, Honolulu, II. I., March 23, 1893.
