MORE BLOUNT INACCURACIES.
One of the chapters in Mr.
mount s report is given as loiiows
by the New York Trihim j
A Japanese incident which is 1
both iiw and interesting is then
related. Mr. lHi.mit says that on
the evening of the Any when the
flae was hauled down ''the Ameri-
can Minister called on me with a
Mr. Walter O. Smith, who, he said,
desired to make an important com
munication to me, and whom he
knew to be very intelligent and re
liable Therei on Mr. Smith, with
intense gra . informed me that
he knew beyond doubt that it had
been arrange'', between the Queen
and the Japanese Commissioner that
if the American flag and troops
were removed the troops from the
Japanese man-of-war Naniwa would
land and reinstate the Queen. Mr.
Smith was the editor of the II
waiian Star, established by the
Annexation club for the purpose of
The American Minister ex
pressed his belief in the statement
of Mr. Smith and urged the im
portance of the American troops
remaining on shore until I could
communicate with you and you
could have the opportunity to com
k ULUtticate with the Japanese Gov
eminent and obtain from it assur
ances that Japanese troops would
not be landed to enforce any policy
on the government or people of
the Hawaiian Islands. I was not
impressed much with these state
ments. Mr. Blount, in the absence of
shorthand notes, was obliged to
depend upon a rather uncertain
memory for the details of the inter
view. It is not surprising that he
should have reported it incorrectly.
What the editor of the Star told
bira was that the ex-Queen had
been urged by friends, when the
American protectorate was about
to be annulled, to put herself under and to put her on a throne there,
the protection of the Japanese flag: js not new. ft has been fully ex
that she was considering such a ' plotted in the Nordboff correspond
move and was inclined to- fence as one of the ways In which
wards it; that Royalists had re- the Royalists might overcome the
ported that the officers of the "eighteen shop-keepers, graziers
Naniwa were in .sympathy with and politicians and the 150 dilapi
the proposal: and that it might be dated adventurers behind them."

some time before he arose from his j
chair on the porch and invited them
to be seated He heard the infor-
mation with the runts which lie
Kenerallv used when Annexation
ists had anything to communicate.
As to statements that anything
"had been arranged between the
Queen and the Japanese Commis
sioner," or that the Japanese "would
land and re-instate tlie Queen,"
Mr. Blount is wholly at fault. No
such statements were made to him.
The report of Mr. Blount is
much too long for complete repub
lication by the Honolulu pre 01
even by the large American papers, j
This morning the Advertiser gave a
chapter and to-day the Star pub-
lishes another one. The two
journals will continue to cull the
interesting matter front the great 1
volume, and in the course of a few
weeks will publish all the salient
points. The "Queen's new con
stitution" is among the prospective
revelations. Prom the fact that I
many Royalists, believing that j
their stories would be held in con- 1
fidence by Mr. Blount were ex- I
ceedingly libellous in their testi- '
inony, it is fair to infer that the re- j
port will be productive of long
Handing local feuds. This is an
undesirable feature but it cannot
be avoided. As usual, lies like
chickens come home to roost.
A New Yoik paper suggests
that if Cleveland restores I.iliuoka
lani it would be no more than fair
to send Anthon Comstock over
here to "pull'' tlie Palace.

The Blount report and its accoia
panying doetuiMBts are conclusive
upon one )oint. They prove that
the Paramount Commissioner went
out to Hawaii, not to hear both
sides and weigh the evidence and
arrive at an independent judicial
conclusion, but to make up a law
yer's case and an ex park argument
sufficiently plausible to afford a
working basis for the execution of
the predetermined policy arranged
and planned by Mr. Cleveland and
Mr. Gresham and their administra
tion. That is to say, the lilount report
is the result ol the policy ol lulamv,
not the policy of infamy the result
of the Paramount gentleman's in-

conscientious investigation were'
superfluous, except in so far as
they enabled him to find props fori
prejudice and lorlificatiotis lor a
foregone conclusion. As an ex
amination preliminary to an Im
partial judgement, Mr. James H.
Blount's proceedings in the Sand

July 17 were pure humbug. Hei
was there as a detective agent, a
retained advocate, the maker-up of'
