Your Majetle.'y Chiefs nu t the People: It has pleasel IIi-5 Majesty the Kin to direct His Honor the Chief Justice ami myself to make some remarks resj.ec-t- insr the solemn and lnnortant ceremony ot tolav. e are gathered here together this morning to assist in laying the corner stone of the new home for the Kings of Hawaii nei. The project has been for several years under consideration, and at the Ja.-t session ot the Legislature an ai-j.roj. nation was made for commencing this work. His Majesty the King has decided that the i'alace .-hould be erected on this sjot, sacred to the memories which cluster alout it of his Jioyal prede cessors now passed away. The ancient Chiefs were remarkable for their fondness of travelling from one part of the Islands to another, thereby evincing a spirit of enterprise and cultivating a talent for government.' This was strikingly illustrated in Kameharneha himself, who when he found that by his own bravery and indomitable will ho had become master of the larger portion of the Island of Hawaii, he immediately left his home in fe r tile Kailua, and removed to the barren, sun-dried sea-beach of Kawaihae. At first glance, proceeding on the part ot the King, but it was only an evidence of his 8iiicrior wisdom. He collected about him the captured chiefs, his own immediate warriors and his wise councillors, and kept them continually with him, all depend ing upon the King for their food and other necessaries of life, wLich came from his own storehouses, and were divided among them under his own (supervision. Iy this proceeding the duels became entirely dependent upon Jvameharneha ; moreover, it was rendered entirely imjossible to carry on any conspiracy or rebellious movement, tor they Ji;wl no means of their own to feed or supjort any of their adherents. Under these circumstances, the King's wise meuand council lors advised hirn to erect the temple of ruukohola, at Kawaihae, Hawaii, as a means of entrapping Keoua, the Kind's last contestant for suiremc iover. who was also a relation of his. Thus came about the downfall of Keoua, tho possession and complete- triumph of Kameharneha over the entire Island of Hawaii. Subsequent to this event, the scat of Government was removed to the Island of Maui. The policy of removing the seat of Government to the place recently conquered was a wise one. For if we will consider the traditional history of the conquest of the country, we shall perceive that in the t,l ir.u' I ut .niin n c-rt.A tlio t-it$-i ninl thn court vrrr nliv:ivs ..... 1 . r. nn.l ct.skll tii ii lrpt -i ii1 flint t)ir trm-tf reason of thU policy was to render the people of the con.iuerel rUVIIICen IJIHCt illl'l lUllltllllii l nil ini.ii vwmi nun uii'ivi their new chiefs, whom they were thus brought to recognize as their undoubted conquerors. At Lahaina the seat of" Government was at first attempted to Le established by the chiefs, and the Court to be retained at that place, ami in consequence of which the Hale Puila was erected as a palace, but which in after years became a court-house and continued such up to the time of its demoli tion. Another reason which has forcibly impressed upon my mind tho belief that the chiefs intended to settle themselves permanently at Lahaina,' is the fact, that at that place they lirst commenced an actual system of government by defining the different departments ; there was also convened the first Legislature that ever existed in Hawaii nei, which at that sitting produced the now celebrated Blue Laws of Luaehu. But as is too often the case with the hopes and aspirations of the sons of men, the fixed intentions of the chiefs were doomed to disappointment. The seat of Government was withdrawn from Lahaina to Oahu, owing to the importance of the harbor of Honolulu, its central position in the group, and subsequently the large increase of the population of this city. The advice and persuasions of the principal chiefs ami councillors induced King Kauikeaouli, styled Kameharneha III, to remove the Government to Oahu in the year 18 IS, ami he took up his residence in the Ilaleuluhc at l'elekanc, in the vicinity where now stands the Kpiscopal Church. Subsequently, in the mouth of July, A. 1. 1844, Kekuanaoa - commenced to erect the building recently demolished, known at that time by the name of Hanailoia. It has been said that in olden times a large hehiu or temple extended to this spot, the name of which was Kaahaimauli. The house was erected for the I'rincesvS Victoria Kamamalu, but Kameharneha III took jtossession of it as a palace, and from that time it was the home for the Kings of Hawaii nei. At the time when Kekuanaoa erected the old palace, the grounds were not so spacious as they are at present. On the western corner was KekuanaoaV house,which he had named llaliimaile ; ami subsequently he commenced to erect a large stone house, the walls of which only appeared above ground, and afterwards vanished into thin air, when the fctones con-josing' them were gold by his son, the late Kameharneha V. There, in the premises known as Pohukaiua, Kekauluohi the Premier erected her house. When John Young was . Premier, he built ami lived in Kinau Hale. There, in that house Iloihoikea, were transacted some of the mo-t important affairs connected with the history of Hawaii and' of the Hawaiian raco ; there lived and died Kameharneha III, and within its walls were held many iin imjiortant council to de cide the interests of this nation, their advancement and their prosperity. The name Iloihoikea was in commemoration of the restoration of the sovereignty ami the Hag of Hawaii nei by Admiral Thomas. During the reign of Kameharneha V, Cabinet councils were frequently held there. There was held the council which called the Constitutional Convention, tho result of which was the abrogation of the Constitution of 18.12 and the promulgation of the present one. There Kameharneha V, he of the strong mind, humbly sm cumbed to his fate, and thus parsed away the last of the Kameharneha dynasty. In that house also the present reigning family met with their first great grief, and far distant be the day when they shall he called to mourn another void in the family. There, in the premises of Pohukaiua, was erected the tomb of the departed chiefs, and at the entrance of that sacred place was placed the imhIv of John Young, one of Kamcha meha's intimate friends. In order that the spot may not be forgotten where that tomb once stood, the King has caused a mound to be raised there, crowned with ferns ami flowers in memory of those who sleep beneath it. Doubtless the memory is yet green of that never-tobe- " forgotten night when the remains oT the departed chiefs were removed to the 1 loyal Mausoleum in the valley. Perhaps the world had never witnessed a procession more weird and solemn than that which conveyed the bodies of the chiefs through oursticcts, accompanied on each side by thousands of people until the mausoleum was reached, the entire scene and procession being lighted by large kukui torches, while the surrounding darkness brought in striking relief the cotlins on their biers. Truly we cannot forget the weirdness, the solemnity, and the affecting scene afforded by that strange midnight procession ! ' The last house that was recently demolished was known on the makai side as Kauluhinano, and as Ihikapukalaui on the mauka ide, erected by Kameharneha IV for his Queen ; there they spent most of their time during his reign. Those 1 who had the good fortune to be invited to partake of the gracious hospitalities of the King and Queen will not soon fore tthe refined and courteous manners of those royal per- sonnies. In Ihikapukalaui was born their child the Prince of Hawaii. "The northern corner of these premises, connecting Kichard Street with Palace Walk, has no relation to the history of the chiefs of Hawaii nei, inasmuch as those prcm- isfcs belong to the Sumner family ; it was only recently that they were purchased in order to complete the square form -of tho palace grounds. The frequenters of these grounds would readily bring to '. the mind's eye the forms of Judd, Lee, liiehards, Wyllie, Armstrong, Robertson and Andrews, in their various posi tions aa public servants and true friends of the Hawaiian " eople. Even now one can bring to mind the countenances . " the dejarted chiefs, who strongly upheld the hands of fjr foreign fellow counsellors After Kaahumauu the Ou L'iM miirht Second comes Kekauluohi and John Younir, and now fancy 1 can see coming up these paths with firm tread the ct:!tfl- l'..rms of Piiki and Kekuanaoa. Here also comes the jovial ami plea-ing countenance of Kapaakea, than whom none excelled in "the qualities of caution and modesty in giving advice to his King, exceeding in this respect his care for his own affairs. "Now before the mind's eye the stooping form of John Ii ; and amongst thce who served; and labored for the good of the country and the progress of the nation, we cannot forget Haalilio, Keliiahonui, Namakaeha, Fv:icr. .-mil K':ir.:iitisi. Ot the servants of the Government and J the people who are now living, it is not fitting to speak on this occasion, for the web of their history lsnot yei woven, nor are their labors finished.' Standing upon this spot this morning, our thoughts revert to the chiefs and counsellors who havVdeparted before ; and some remarks are suggested in regard to events of the past regime as compared with those of the present. Should any one consider that it is a light and easy task to conduct the affairs of our Island Government, he will be greatly mis taken, for evidently it will require all the skill, the watchful care, the patiencethe caution and the industry that can be bestowed in the future, in order to secure the well-being of the people and the prosperity of the Government. The pleasant memories of my youth about this city of ours are still fresh. When the palace which' once stood on this spot was built, this was a treeless plain, covered with creep ing thorns, sparsely dotted with grass houses, among which wound narrow lanes, formed by the banks of taro patches. Now, as we look about us on all sides, all these tilings are changed ; it would seem as if the bloom and verdure of the valleys had been transplanted hither, tho handsome white residences, the churches and the hospitals, the water brought down from its mountain hiding-place to the inner most homes of the icorle, the whirl of the wheels of vehicles of all desc riptions along our streets, the clangor of hammers in tho various haunts of industry, the construction of telegraphic wires and" the telephone, carrying with the l.. i l. t a 7 , xiN pieei 01 iigiuni ng our spuiveii hoius. xjuoKiug luwaius uie harbor, there thirty years ago there was but one wharf, that ot .James Kobinson. whereas to-day the water frontage is nearly all occupied with wharves, while the once quiet sur face of tho harbor is now disturbed by the movements of the numerous coasters, merchant and whaleshius. vessels of war. our inter-island steamer, and the periodical calls of the huge n mail steamers. f A . A , .I our commerce xweniy-nve years ago was next to nothing as compared with the present time ; for in those days our commerce depended upon the visits of the whaleships ; we produced nothing of importance for export, except such articles as we miirht be able to trade with .them.durii winter months and a smalt portion of the spring ; but during. the long summer months we saw no more of these customers. In the year 1853, the total value of all our exports amounted to the sum of 148,G85.7G ; and in tho year 1878, the value of our exports reached the sum of 3,247,879.49, .Not, ouly this, l)nt wo must consider the wages, earned by the people. 'Formerly twenty-five cents per diem was considered high wages for a laborer, but now ho demands as high as two dollars or moro for a single dayV work. ' i i i - It is not however iii this city alone that we find evidences of the changed condition of the'peoplc ami the country.' Let us turn our eyes to the windward islands and examiuo their conditions. A hundred years ago, those islands were noted as being the theatres of war for their fearless braves, with their spears and javelins, where apparently the only use of the commyn people was to help their chiefs in their warlike pursuits, to implicitly obej', to trust to and to love their chiefs. ; ' But in these days, on those plains' where "onco tho flying spear and swift javelin were familiar ohjects.a great war of a different character is going forward on most of the fertile por tions of the country. In the far distant past it was tho fierce tread of armed men on their marches and in their combats that filled the air with the dust of their movements ; but in these days it is tho untiring point of the plow that industri ously stirs up the dry soil which has so long lain fallow, the steam whistle echoes far and near, arousing the idle to join hands with the industrious, that both may work together for progress. Jbifty years ago, if a prophet had arisen who should have foretold that the wilderness of Kohala, Hamakua v,iu Hilo ami the barrenness of Kau should be cultivated, that tho rushing streams of precipitous Koolan on Maui that then ran to waste in the ocean should be diverted to fertilize the broad plains of Kulaokamaomao, that tho first telephone should be constructed between Wailuku and Haiku, that tho first race of the iron horse should be from Hamakuapoko to the rise of 2sehe, that Honolulu should witness the prosecu tion of so many industrial pursuits and the erection of schools and churches, that the bulrushes of the swamps of Ewa and Waikiki should bo swept away by the agriculture of a foreign race, that the gushing streams of Kauai, famed in song, should be made to serve in fertilizing the land and doing the work of man what should we have thought of such a prophet 'i AVc should have pronounced him a visionary or a madman. Uut in the past fifty years, during which we have enjoyed the benefits of an enlightened civilization, many and great changes have taken place, affording a noble contrast to the times of our forefathers. To-day, every man is a freeman, our laws protect equally the person, the life and the property of every man, secure from injury or spoil. In these last years we have received a generous national concession, which must encourage and consolidate our agricultural interests, giving new life to the land. And thus, as the country grows in wealth and the Government in its ability to serve the people, in like generous manner and proportion may we provide a homo for the Kings of Hawaii ! For mvself, being a member of the Masonic Fraternity, I am reminded of the Sovereigns of this Kinirdom who have become members of the same and have devoted their ener gies to forwarding the interests of that benevolent Order, whose object is to combine all good men in one sacred bond of brotherhood, fo-day the honorable duty has devolved u I xHi that Order of laying tho corner-stone of tho Uoyal Palace here to be erected ; so al-o was awarded to that Order the honor of laying the foundations of the world- renowned Temple of Jerusalem. - Three of the crowned heads of this Kingdom were mem bers of this Order," as was also the late lamented Prince Leleiohoku. The corner-stones of all our principal public buildings have been laid by the Order of Freemasons. Kameharneha IV one of the wisest of our Kings, and whose reign shed a lustre upon the throne of Hawaii nei, laid the corner-stone of the Sailors' Home and of the Queen's Ilospi tal. Kameharneha Y, the King of inflexible will and undaunted mien, laid the corner-stone of our much admired Government building, Aliiolani Hale. We are now in the reign of Kalakaua, the only one of these Sovereigns who has ascended all tho steps of the craft, and has reached the pinnacle of Masonic honors. It is a matter of surprise as well as of gratification to know that the sentiments and inclinations of our Kings have in this matter tended in one direction that of Masonry ; so that we may say of them, " Heboid how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity ; it is like the precious ointment on the head that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard, that went down to tho skirls of his garment." And thus it was with the concord of purpose between our Kings. In our IJrotherhood of Masonry each member is taught the symbolical meaning of the three rounds of the ladder which the Patriarch Jacob saw in his dream. These are, Faith, Hope and Charity. I need hardly apologise to the craft assembled here to-day for comparing these three great rounds with the peculiar characteristics of the Sovereigns of this Kingdom who have been members of the renal craft Kameharneha IV as Faith, Kameharneha V as Hope, and his present Majesty as Charitv. For Liholiho (Kamehcmeha IV) believed that the people Ia 1 1 ! il 1- 1- oe savea iy curing ineir diseases, as witness rns exertions in procuring the erection of the Queen s Hospital. a proof of his Faith. Kapuaiwa (Kameharneha V) was hopeful for the perpetuity of Hawaiian independence. The stately Government House, with its enduring walls, stauds before you as a proof that his leading sentiment was Jfje. To his present Majesty we apply the title of Charily. It was the nooie&t ot charitv, springing lrom an earnest desire for the prosperity of his people, that induced him to leave his Kingdom and to brave the wintry cold of the Kooky Mountains and to face he icy sleet of the world-renowned cataract of Niagara, with tho only object in view of securing to his people the boon of Reciprocity. And we have all observed how he ami his Queen have labored in all weathers throughout the Islands for the welfare of the j eople. In the words of Paul to the Corinthians, I may say, -'And now; abideth these three, Faith, Hope and Charity ; but the greatest of these is Charity." In the words of our Order,: "For our Faith may be lost insight ; Hope ends m fruition ; but Charity extends beyond the grave through the boundless realms of eternity !" And no:.', as we are gathered upon this spot, sacred to the memory of chiefs and kings who have departed, together we have laid this corner-stone of a new home for the Kings of Hawaii nei. Our earnest desire, our prayer and our hope, is that our Gracious King shall be granted long life, to his family peace, health and honors ; and tor the nation and the Government, continued progress and prosperity to the end of time !
