THE MINISTERIAL ESCAPADE.
It Iconics our unplcagant duty to place on
record the fact, that the Constitutional adviecrs
or tin- King have proved recreant to their solemn
proraipe to the country given in their official dec
laration or July 7, 1873, and have deliberately
trifled and treated with indignity a great and pecu
liarly friendly power, by officially withdrawing the
proposition to negotiate with the United States
fur a treaty of reciprocity based on a ceebion of
Pearl Harbor, without awaiting the receipt of
any communication from that government in
regard to the proposition. Such an astounding
disregard for public faith and international cour
tesy waa not dreamed of by even the worst
enemies or the -Ministry, and the announcement
on Wednesday morning fell on the public car like
a clap of thunder out of a clear bky. Astonish
ment and alarm were the prevailing sentiments
expressed on the street (except by the few who
have been striving and hoping for the defeat of
the measure, and these were overjoyed) aston
ishment at such an unheard-of ministerial esca
pade, and well-ground ! alarm at the evil effects
which must surely follow. There can be no pos
sible utility in suppressing the plain truth, that
the eoriscquences of thin blundering ministerial
action will be disastrous in the extreme to all
branches of business throughout the country, but
more particularly of course to the agricultural
interests. The t; official declaration " of July
last, of " the King's decision, made after long
and careful deliberation," to endeavor to nego
tiate a treaty of reciprocity with the United
States, with the formally proffered cession as an
inducement to that iowcr, had the undoubted
effect to stimulate agricultural and other business
enterprises, and to impart confidence in trade, on
the strength of what was believed to be a well
grounded faith in the sincere determination of tin
Ministry to make a 6trong eflort for the accom
plishment of the measure they had thus publicly
announced and "pledged themselves to labor for.
Well calculated to produce this feeliDg of conC-1
dence and hopefulness in the public mind were
these emphatic concluding won! of tin Ministe
rial declaration :
When such a treaty shall have been negotiated
by the .Minister of Foreign Affairs, and approved by
the King, it will then be submitted to the Legislative
Assembly for their approval. We believe that such
a treaty would impart new life to business of all de
scriptions; that lands would be in demand for new
agricultural enterprises, and instead of worthy and
industrious men leaving the Kingdom, more of that
class would be attracted here.
"To advance the prosperity of this Kingdom is
the purpose and policy of llis Majesty's Government,
and this measure, if successful, will strongly tend
to promote that object; and we confidently believe
that when fairly considered, and well understood, it
will commend itself f ivorably to the public judgment."
The Hazeli" lias been very generally (and is j
very proj'Crly) ron-idi-red as the mnuth-pieec and i
f3emi-ofiici.il organ of the Ministry. We o,uotc a
few cf its utterances t-ubsciuent to the publica
tion of th-' official declaration " of . Inly 7th :
lAs any :ane man dream that His Majesty will
now break cfT frora his solemn and long-considered
resolve to effect a tr-aty, if one can be made? A !
stranze idea of power 1 wisdom must be in the I
minds of those who ate .now seeking to thwart the
KiDg's effort, or to induce Lira t; ay to the world, I
"I hare agreed to make thfc treaty if the United i
Statea desire it, but now I desire to say, 'jjt I do 1
not ;Qi-?nJ to make it.' July COth.J i

In re?ar J to this matter. His Majesty has cipreKJOJ
the wish tht his subjects suspend their judgment
until a reply shall bo received from the American
Government, as to whether it i" willing to tre.it with
him ( n this basis.
A measure to which the Kin sfjovernmetit
a eoiL.niitted itself, and has civen ofiicial notice
enly to the American Government, but through
rrM tn thp nenr.lc
A measure adapted by his perra'ission and
order, and from which this Government cannot with
draw with due respect to him, or the Government to
which he has made advances. pL o.
Now if the Mini.-t'-rs were honest and sincere
lit the view- expressed aud the t.olicy avowed by
tLem in the morth of duly last, (regarding the
U-nefii-ial effect of which, if put fairly in execu
tion, they now declare that they have not changed
their mind-) what very grav.- and p.tential cir-cum-staii.-e,
what imj-.-nding emergency, let us
a-k, has since arieen to warrant this unseemly
haste in abruptly abandoning a measure that had
b--n adoptt-d only after such long and careful
deliberation? Tiie artless answer, (which must
make a profound impression when it reaches the
State Dejartment at Washington) is to the effect
that His Majesty's advisers hnnny Ucome salts
fifd that the treaty would not receive the approval
required by the Constitution, have considered it
proier to withdraw the proposition. That is all,
and it means this : That the Ministers acknowl
edge bavin" initiated a measure and made a
formal proposition to the f'nit.-d States (loveru
ment without taking into account what was or
might le the general feeling or Kentiment of the
native people thereon, although it had been freely
discussed among them in public for at least four
months previously ; that they have just discovered
the state of that feeling to be averse to the meas
ure, whereat they are so alarmed and demented
that they really dare not wait to see if the treaty
(if, perchance, one were negotiated) would or
would not be ratified by a Legislature not yet
elected, and which is to meet six months hence
but they tutss it would not ; and that therefore
" to save time and labor " (that's all) they will
make no endeavor to change and correct that
erroneous general feeling against a measure
which they once " confidently believed, that
wla-u fairly considered, and well understood,
would commend itself favorably to the public
judgment," and of the beneficial cffectB of
which they are still satisfied," but they will now
proceed to deliberately falsify their pledges to
the country and to oSer a grave indignity to a
great and generous nation, and retain their
portfolios and $5,000 a year !
Look at these Ministerial dissolving views"
in any light we may, we can discern no evidence
of either pluck, dignity, tact or management.
They jK-rfunctorily inform the public that, after
all these acrobatic feats, they etill retain the un
diminished confidence of His Majesty: be this as
it may, they have most assuredly forfeited what
ever confidence their fellow-citizens may have re
posed in them as public officials. Carefulness and
circumspection in large degree the traits of very
conservative men have been heretofore attributed
to the present members of Ilia Majesty's Cabinet,
but in the present instance they appear to have
entirely "lost their heads," and committed a
blunder in statesmanship that the veriest tyro
would have avoided.
At the conclusion of the dispatch to the Amer
ican Minister Resident announcing this grand
crawfish manoeuvre, the Ministry, in a few spirit
less words, announce the important fact they
"still entertain the opinion that a special Treaty
of Reciprocity, of a similar character to that of
May 21st, 1807, would prove to be mutually ad
vantageous to the United States and the Hawaiian
Kingdom." Hut little reflection will suggest the
reason for this very brief allusion to the bare pos
sibility of any further negotiation on the subject
Suppose that the next mail from the Hast shall
bring the announcement that the Cabinet of Pres
ident (trant declines to negotiate on the basis of
the proposed cession ; the position of the Ministry
in having needlessly "taken a hasty plate of
Boup," will be sufficiently ridiculous. Hut if, on
the contrary, we should receive the intelligence
that they bad accepted the proposition, and that
a special Commissioner was on his way hither for
the purpose of negotiating the Treaty, the Minis
terial position would not, to put it mildly, be one
to be coveted by a person fond of a quiet life.
In our issue of September 13th, immediately
following the wretched episode of the " war of
the barracks," we recommended the Ministry to
resign their positions, which they had shown
themselves so incapable of properly filling. Had
they then adopted our suggestion, they would
have been saved the humiliating disgrace and rid
icule which they have now brought upon them
selves. Under the head of official notifications, will be
found the list of seven new members of the
House of Xoblcs, whose appointment by the King
was gazetted on Wednesday last. The selections
have elicited no advfrse criticisms, but appear to
meet with general public approval. Messrs.
Dowsett and Wilder have both had experience in
Legi"lative uflltirs in the llouso of Representatives,

We copy tl.c following Mini.-tcrial explanation
and official cvrTetpotidcnce from the iiaztt' .f
the lVth instant :
His Majesty's advisers having l.jcorue satisSel
that a Treaty cf Reciprocity with the United States
unon the basis of cesik'n cf the Pearl River Lazo. c.
would not receive the approval required by the Con
stitution, cf the Kingdom to make it effective, c. as;-
time and labor that might otherwise be consumed in
an unprofitable negotiation, should the United States
Government be dL-posed to make such a treaty ; and
also to put an end to suspense upon that important
subject, the following letter addressed to His Excel
lency the Minister Resident, was approved on the
1 1th instant, and sent to him.
Some eight months have elapsed since the cessivu
of Pearl River Harbor, in connection with recipro
city, was first publicly discussed, auJ over four
months since a direct proposition to negotiate upon
that basis, was communicated by authority; aul
whether or not the administration at Washington is
favorably disposed towards the measure, is not yet
known to His Majesty's Government.
Having had to withdraw so important a measure,
which they had recommended to His Majesty, and
regarding the beneficial effect of which, if put fairly
in execution, they had not changed their minds
the Ministers deemed it their duty to relieve HLs
Majesty of any embarrassment that their retention
of office might cause him, and tendered their resig
nations on the 14th instant.
On the loth, His Majesty having graciously ex
pressed his undiminished confidence in his Ministers,
and requested them all to withdraw their resigna
tions, and to continue to discharge the duties of their
several ofiices, his request was complied with.
Department of Foreign Affaiks,
Honolulu, .Nov. 14th. 1873. J
ie : un tue 7tn or Juiy last, i naa tne nouor to
inform Your Excellency, by a note of that date, that
I had been authorized by my Sovereign to negotiate
with a duly empowered Representative of the United
States, a Special Treaty of Reciprocity, upon the
basis of that signed at San Francisco, May Jlst,
18C7, and that 1 was also authorized to include in
such a treaty a cession, for the purpose of a naval
station, of the salt water lagoon known as Pearl
River; and I further stated, that the treaty which
might be agreed upon, would be subject to ratifica
tion by the King, and the approval of the Legisla
tive Assembly of the Kingdom, according to the
Up to the present time, His Majesty's Government
is not aware of the views or intentions of your Gov
ernment upon the subject referred to, and can only
judge of its disposition by the liberal views mani
fested in past negotiations for reciprocity in com
merce, but which have not, unfortunately, been sus
tained by the requisite majority of the Senate.
Wishing at all times to act with perfect frankness
with you, and with the great nation and friendly
government which you represent, it is my duty to
state that, the expressed wishes of a large proportion
of the business community, as well as their own
viewJ of the desirableness of the measure, induced
His Majesty's Government to make the proposition
contained in my note referred to. Since the submis
sion of that note, it has become evident that the
general feeling in the country is so adverse to the
measure, that even if the United States should ac
quiesce in it, a treaty on the basis of a cession of
territory would not be ratified by the next Legisla
tive Assembly. Under these circumstances, it has
pleased His Majesty the King to direct me to with
draw that part of my note of 7th July, which relates
to a cession of the Pearl River Lagoon and other ter
ritory to the United States, for a naval station, and
to request you, Mr. Minister, to advise your Govern
ment of the same, at the earliest date practicable.
His Majesty's Government still entertains the
opinion that a Special Treaty of Reciprocity, of a
similar character to that of May 21st, 18G7, would
prove to be mutually advantageous to the United
States and the Hawaiian Kingdom.
Renewing to you the assurances of my high con
sideration and respect, I have the honor to be, your
Excellency's most obedient servant,
Cus. R. Bishop.
His Ex. Henry A. Peirce,
Minister Resident of the United States.
Lkcation of tue U. t?. of America, ?
Honolulu, Nov. 17th, 1873. 5
His Ex. Chas. R. Bishop, H. H. M. Minister of
Sir : I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt
of Your Excellency's note of date Nov. 14th current.
The most important part therein contained, con
veys the information : that for reasons which you
mention. His Hawaiian Majesty has been pleased to
direct you to withdraw that part of your note of the
7th of July last, addressed to this Legation, which
relates to the proposition for a cession to the United
States of the Pearl River Lagoon and other territory.
The only part of Your Excellency's said note of
the 14th inst., which I deem myself authorized to
reply to, at this time, relates to an apparent delay
on the part of my government in transmitting its
decision in respect to the propositions submitted to it
in your note of July 7th last, before alluded to.
Delay has arisen doubtless in view of the impor
tance of the subject, and the great deliberation re
quired for their final decision.
The difficulty experienced by the Legation in sea
sonably procuring and transmitting to Washington,
a copy of the recent survey of the Pearl River La
goon ; together also with the interruption for two
months past of the regular transportation of the
mails between San Francisco and Honolulu, has
caused additional delay.
A copy of your note, as requested, will be for
warded to the Department cf State, by the first op
portunity that oilers.
le pleased to accept the re:aewed assurances of
my high consideration and giat respect ; having
the honor to be, Your Excellency's obedient servant,
(Signed), IIexky A. Peikce.
f Departure of His Majesty for Hawaii.
At a few minutes before 4 o'clock r. ji. on Monday
last His Majesty embarked on the steamer Kilauea
for Hawaii, intending to spend a few weeks for the
recuperation of His health in the delightful and salu
brious climate of Kona. Iu the King's suite were
11. II. Charles Kanalna, Her Majesty Queen Emma,
Her Excellency R. Keelikolani, His Excellency Gov.
Dominis and the Hon. Mrs. Dominis, the Hon. Mrs.
A. S. Cleghorn, Major W. P. Leleiohoku, the King's
j Chamberlain II. G. Crabbe, and Mrs. Crabbe, Col.
the Hon. J. M. Kapena and Mrs. Kapena, Major II.
! A. Kahanu, Col. C. II. JudJ, and the King's Physi-
cian, Dr Trousseau. His Majesty's arrival at the
. lanJin(r was eTwted with heartv cheers bv the as-
o - CT af
sembled thousands of His loyal subjects, the band
PWS "God Save the King," and as He stepped ou
board the steamer the Itoyal Standard was run up at
her mainmast head and saluted by the battery on
Punchbowl. At 1 precisely, the steamer left the
dock, when the U. S. S. flag-ship Sarar.ac, Admiral
Pennock.at anchor near by, ran up the Hawaiian
flag at the main, and fired a royal salute, at the same
time manning yards in fine style. We but represent
the universal sentiment of all classes in expressing
he earnest hope that the change to the more equable
climate of Kona will result in fully re-establishing
His Majesty's health.
By the arrival of the .Yettie Merrill on Thurs-
Jay, we learn that the Kilauea with His Majesty
and suite on board, arrived at Lahaina at 2:00 on
Tuesday morning. The party landed and took break
fast with His Excellency Governor Nahaolelua, and
re-embarked between 10 and 11 o'clock and pro
ceeded on for Hawaii. Though His Majesty was
rather unexpected at Lahaina, the people assembled
iu crowds to meet him, and he addressed to them a
few words of kindly greeting from the balcony of the
AsinooMic.vi..--The planet Mars and ilio siar p
Capricorn, may b seen close together in the south
west quarter of the heaven; just now. about 7 i
