Folitical Meeting at the Catholic Church
H.ittaii.ui cloetois usually tij't-.t c;iiKlul.it.s
who Lave l-t ti (li .ja l-y tln iu to t.iko a st-ut in
the Legislative Asewbly, to aMrts theia in
relation to jullio questions, prior to the conven
ing of the AsstuiMy for Legislative lU3ines.
The Howuiiiin i-i very attentive to .ullic tiues
tious, perhaiis too wueli so in some cases, for Lis
private interest. The loan question, the re
newal of the treaty,, i.r Sliuisteri.-il investigation,
are topics " discussed with vehemence in Hawai
ian homes, to the exclusion of topics of a more
immediate personal and vital interest. The Ha
waiian politician, like the politician of many
greater countries, neglects sometimes his own
affairs in order to promote the political salva
tion of the nation.
A meetiug whs called at the Catholic School
House ou Fort Street, at the close of religious
services on Sunday last. All the recent success
ful candidates had heen invited; but only Messrs
Gibson and Lahilahi put in an appearance. The
room was crowded to its utmost capacity, and
Mr. Gibson spoke to the assembled people in
the Hawaiian language substantially as follows
''Catholics .vxn Ei.kooks or Hoxolclc:-
mis nay is especially dedicated to the service
of God. You have been listening to the voices
of your pastors aud guides, and they point the
waj- to salvation in another and better world
ineir care nnd solicitude is cmtfly for your
souls' sake. lnt I stand tip here to speak more
especially for the welfare of the body. My aim
is to point out the way to a salvation that be
gins in this world. And 1 believe that the sal
vation of this life, and that of the life to come,
are tilxiut the same in principle. The Founder
of all our faiths, of all Christian creeds, avowed
his object was to save the sinner, rather than to
rare for the saint; to comfort the weak and
lowly, rather than to wait upon the well-to-
do ; and that the foundation of His Kingdom
and Government was laid in the suffrages of the
suffering and the little ones. And such is the
true object of Government among men : it is
for the protection of the ignorant and insuffi
cient, rather than for the convenience of the
rich and the all self sufficient. I want to see
Government administered on the principle that
the welfare of the people is tho supreme law.
With such a principle fully established and acted
upon in all our public dealings, we would be
come especially honored among the nations.
' And when I speak of the duty aud underly
ing principle of a Government, there is also im
plied the reciprocal duty and rule of action of
the people. You want to look up to rulers, as
fathers, who shall pursue a wise and nourishing
policy; and you as faithful aud loyal children
should be ready to heed and to h -lp in the work
of your political family.
" The chief thing that 1 look at, all the time,
is your health; the health of the Hawaiian Peo
ple and of all races in this Kingdom. All civil
ized nations of course take into consideration
the question of public health ; but as this little
nation is the only one of all the family of States
with an independent Government, that has been
declining in consequence of disease prevailing
over health, therefore, I feel all the time, that
the Government should make the question of
health, of sanitary improvement, its lead
ing and paramount question of public policy.
But all that a Government can do, uud all ex
penditure of money will bain vain: if you do
not faithfully co-operate. You who are sick
must desire to be healed, and work to be healed.
You must believe that your rulers, like your
religious teachers, want to do you good. You
must heed and accept instruction for your wel
fare. You must study it, aud put it into prac
tice. You must regard your children as your
chief blessing and pride. Your love and care
for your little ones is the greatest policy that
you as Hawaiian citizens can entertain. The
loan question, the treaty question, and ques
tions about amending the Constitution are not
as near to you as your health aud your babies.
I can and will take a hand in all these questions;
but my chief hope and study are that the Hawai
ian People be healed and increase and nmltipl3'.
"As my young colleague here (Mr. Lahilahi)
is prepared to present to ymi wry fluently and
entertainingly many of the more striking topics
of the day, I will now give the floor to him:
praj-ing you in conclusion to honor your King,
revere and honor your religious teachers and
guides, to be obedient to law, and zealous to
co-operate with the government in measures for
'Hon. II. V. Lahilahi then discoursed on the
advantages of a loan. Tiio hea'th of the nation
was dependent on money. Money was life; and
with plenty of money all would be happy.
Subsequently, after Messrs. Gibson and Lahi
lahi had retired, Messrs. Sheldou and Poepoe
discussed the question of legislative authority
spoke of the disfranchisement of the district of
Kaanapali ; and a committee of live electors was
appointed to consider this matter.
At Seattle, on IStli ultimo, shortly after G in
the evening, George B. Reynolds?, head saletuv.ui
in a large business establishment, was retailing
from liia home to the store when he was called on
by two men to throw up his hands and de
liver.' Reynolds immediately put his hand up
lor his revolver, when one of the tinevcs said to
the other " j;ive it to him,' and the latter imme
diately ehot him, the ball entering between two
of the lower rib, inflicting injuries from which
death ensued about two hoard afterwards. The
thieves immediately ran away. For what fol
lowed we quote from the Seattle Daily Post-In-tdliycnctr
At the announcement of the shooting, the
fire-bell tapped, and about two hundred of our
best citizens congregated at the cngiue-houpe and
organized a vigilance committee to jatrol the
street, watch the means of egress from the city,
and detect the perpetrators ol this horrible crime.
The same two lellows who, the night previous,
stopped Kcv. John U. Fair, on Front-etreet, and
the captain of the Enoch Talbot ou the coal
wharf the eveuing previous, weie eujipoeed to be
the guilty parties bcut 10 o'cLck a
euepicious-looking character was found secreted
in the hay on Harrington & Smith's wharf by a
portion of the Vigilance Committee. Ou being
asked where his friend was, he baid he hud no
friend ; but, in lecs than two minutes, his com
panion also was found secreted within a few feet
of him. One i f (hem had a loaded revolver on
him, with one cartridge empty, and the barrel
showed that the shot had been recently fired.
The other fellow had about one hundred car
tridge's in his pocket which fit the other one's
pistol. By some mistake, the members of the
Committee who had them, iustead of taking them
to the Committee-rooms for trial, turned them
over to the officers, and they were hustled off to
the gaol. While they were still in the Sheriff's
office, sjuie two hundred committee mCn waited
on the officers at the gaol, and, after smashing
the doors, demanded the prisoners. Things
looked desperate for a while, but Sheriff Wycoff
and Chief M'Gaw gave their words of honor that
the fellows should be taken for examination
before a magistrate at 0 o'clock this morning
(19th). This assurance seemed to quiet the com
mittee, after demanding and being allowed to
take the sloes from tho fellows' feet, in order to
examine and identify certain trucks that had been
discovered near where the shooting took place.
By 9 o'clock (the next m .-ruing) at lca!t 2tK
people had congregated about the gaol, nnd a
lew minute later tt-e officers came out with ti e
pris -tiers hctwecn them. Iy the time tfey
reached Yt?kr's Hill, where the examination
was t.i take lice, the Hill was crowded, and,
by the time the rr-ecJings commenced, every
foot of standing room in the building was occu
lted. . . . Mr. V. II. White, a.-istcJ by
Ju'Jgo Jacobn, conducted thu examination on
behalf of the territory, nnd Mr. W. H -'cotab
volunteered tj appear for the prisoner."
(Ifngthy evidence was t.ik;-n which onted
unmistakably to the prisoners a being the mur
derer of Key nolds, mid his accomplice. They gave
their names as ,J iaios Sullivan and Willi.nn
"At the cncluiion o! the tetim nv ( f the

As so m as the justice had ceased tpeakin
and betore the soui.d ol his v.. ice had died out in
the hall, the outraged caucus laid handsujvm the
two murderers, and rushed them out through t lie
back entrance, down t:.e alley to Occidental
equate, where a ecatiold had been constructed by-
placing a couple ol tim'n-rs aiTo.-s rom one maple
tree to another. ai;d in less time than it takes to
tell it Mcsms. Sullivan rnd II .ward were dang
ling in the air, iu the picsence of about two
thousand people, comprising ministers, lawyers,
doctors, business men and honest law-abiding
citizens, all of whom, with one or two exevpti ins,
approved the people's doings, and ussisied in car
rying the programme into effect. In justice to
the officers we will state that thev were oetp w
eted and held until too latj to prevent the mur
derers from paying the penalty. Howard, the
little red Leaded fellow was "badly lightened,
and died without much struggle ; but Sullivan
fought till the very list, and still showed signs ol
life ten or fifteen minutes alter he was siiuug tip.
After these fellows had hung for liftecu or twenty
minutes some one su-zgested that something was
lacking to complete the picture, and n hundred
caught the idea."
Benjtmin Payne, who muideied officer
Sires, last October, is equally guilty with these
fellow ti ' said a respected citizen, aud'shouM suffer
the same penalty. At this four hundred cool,
'ietermined men started for the gaol where Payne
was confined. They expel iein-ed some dnliculty
iu getting in, but that, was overcome. They
broke a pass ijc-way through the high board
fence; chopped the heavy outside wooden doors
opcu, and with sledge hammers they soon broke
open the two remaining iron doors, nnd reached
the cell where the doomed man had sccieted him
self. With a:i escort ol citizens on either side,
and several hundred in front and behind to keep
off evil disposed p.eisons, he was marched down
to the gallows where Sullivan and Howard were
still hanging. While the rope was being adjust
ed about his neck he was asked to make a con
fession of the killing of Sires but he protested
his innocence to the last. At 1 o'clock the first
two were strung up. and at half-past 1 Mr. Payne
followed suit. He died very quickly, with but
few struggles. At 2 o'clock tho trio wer e low

Let it be known to all the world that this was
the work of no mob. It was the result of the
uprising ol'an outraged and long suffering com
munity of law-abidin-r citizens, who felt it their
sacred duty to thus show to tho world and all
mankind that forbearance with murderers and
thieves had ceased to be a virtue in this commu
nity, and that the lives and property of respecta
ble citizens shall nnd will be protected, and that
outrages and atrocities will hereafter be dealt
with in a manner they justly deserve, without
lear or lavor.
Tho funeral of Reynolds was made a public
demonstration flags flvinu at half-mast, bells
tolling, arid business wholly suspended every
one from the merchant to the humblest laborer
leaving his work to be resent at the mournful
ceremony. 1 he I Tcsby tcrnui Church, in which
the funeral service took place, was crammed to
suffocation. More than two hundred wreaths of
flowers were laid upon the coflin. The service
was of an impressive character. After a dirge
on the organ, and the reading of Scripture, the
anthem, I would not live always," was sung ;
and, after prayer, the hymn "Bock of Ages."
Then followed a funeral discourse by Bev. John
F. Damon. The labt scene in the church was a
very painful one : " At ttie close of the sermon
all those who desired were permitted to look for
the last time ou the face of p jor George. The
grief-stricken wife (ihey were only thirteen
months married) clung to the Coffin, and, in the
agonies of her despair, would call out the name
ol her husband. When finally taken away by
friends, she begged and pleaded for only one
more look. She would not, could not be com
forted. The scene was perfectly heart-rending,
and the sadness and sorrow expressed were in
describable." The following is a specimen of the comments
on this afl'iir in other Amcriciii towns :
" Portland, Oregon. The lynching at Seattle
is generally ap proved here by all classes o! citizens.
The Orcyontan says : Extraordinary crimes
demand special severe and summary methods.
Good men everywhere will say well done to the
Committee ol Safety. Perhaps it may occur to
the District Attorney at Washington to move for
a change of venue in .the Guitcau case to Seattle,
About fifty million ieople would secjni the
Mr. Pixley oa Hawaiian Affairs. ;
January i was fixed by the Senate Com
mittee of Foreign liclutions to her argil- f
incuts upon the various bills and resolutions ;
concerning Hawaiian commercial recipro
city. The Minister of the Hawaiian King
dom, Judge Allen, who, by virtue of
seniority, is dean of the Diplomatic Corps,
was present. Mr. II. A. P. Carter, Min
ister of the Interior, (on his way to Kurope)
with others interested as refiners of sugar
at the North and growers of cane at the '.
South were also in attendance. The free
traders iu Congress will hold on to this
treaty. Those who desire a reciprocity
treaty with Mexico and the States of Cen
tral America will not consent to its repeal. '
I doubt whether the protectionists proper :
will dare to make the issue on the revuca- i
tion of this treaty. Aside from the question
of revenue, or the price of sugar, or tlie
treatment of the hired laborers from Scan
dinavia or Portugal, there are broader and
more important questions involved. Politi
cal considerations will determine all this ;
business of Hawaiian relation to the United
States of America. Refiners or sugar-grow - j
ers, with their anti-monopoly delegations, j
their paid lobby, and their interested ad-'
vocates, will, in my judgment, cut a very
unimjM.rt.iiit figure in the ndjustnietit of our

Secretary Kvarts, afkr evidencing an In
tention of abandoning tne tradition to
which I have referred, wn compelled to
back down. Secretary P. Vine brought to
the discharge of his duties m Secretary of
Stale a detcrmiirithm m uphold tho Anit-r-ican
doctrine tin- Monroe- 1 Kiel rlnc the
doctrine of national elf-jepH-ot. In hi
eorrospondi nee in reference to the Isthmus
canal, the Clay ton-BuWvcr treaty, and the
Chile-Peru embrogli , ho took an advanced
position, und the only- one consistent with
t he dignity of a nation that mimU-r over
fifty millions of people, and which, by virtue
of its numbers, its intelligence, it form of
government, and its geographical locution,
is charged w ith the destinies of this hemi
sphere.' As Americans, we have always ap
plauded the I'.nglish for the assertion of
their rights among all tin nations; we have,
admired them for making their Hag re
spected. It is now time for American state
manship to assert itself In a fearless and
resolute maintenance of the Monroe Doc
trine, w hieh, I take it, means that we will
mind our own business, and that all other
nations, Knglaud included, shall he com
pelled to mind theirs.
This doctrine Secretary Hlalne began to
assert with commendable emphasis. It is
a iKisition which, when understood by the
American people, w ill be n, predated by
them and upheld by them iu f-pite of tho
misrepresentations of lmglish journals, and
those 'American' journals, the Herald,
the Tinics and the Hettiin; Fo.-t, of New
York, w hose editors, writers, ninl proprie
tors are I'.nglish, with Knglish views In
reference to American polities.
When the correspondence of the .State
Department becomes public, it will ho Been
that by far the most spirited chapter is that
concerning the Sandwich Islands, iu which
Secretary Dluine laid down without equivo
cation or limitation, the declaration that
the United States of America would not
permit any foreign country to obtain
domination over the Sandwich Islands; that
it would not permit them to be Asiaticizcd;
that it would not permit the introduction
of Anglo-Indian coolies, with a reserved
right of Hritish jurisdiction over them
through English tribunals ; that the tlov
ernmeiit of the United States would not per
mil thcxe tfiini.t to be done, tven with the
consent of the Hawaiian tov rnment. The
Government of the t inted States win do
one of three things : It will maintain with
the Islands a reciprocal treaty, or will give
them a military protection, or will annex
them as a part of our Republic. This is In

tains a full report of the sp e!i of His Excel
lcney the Governor, Mr. G org.- Jc Vii iu, at
the opening of the V.' i lSoc, or iiuuu.d meetiug
of native chiefs at Naihegi. With regal d to the
desire cxpivHm d by sola:'1 of the chiefs that the
name of Sir Arthur Gordon, the late Governor,
should be associated with the Colony by tho
grunt to him of one or more of th" small islands
of the group, the Governor stated that her
Majesty was willing to lu-ecib? to the request,
provided that the Goicrnor (-.ivis the assurance
that tho interests of tho colonists will not lxj
prejudicially aiTceb d by thi grant. On this
question bin Excellency says: "On my part
there is no such objection, and I consider the
services of Sir Arthur Gordon to this Colony
' very fully d- serve n cognition, and it
will give me very great pleasure, therefore, to
state this to the iieen aud to issue tho Crown
grants forthwith. Those islands, though small
and uninhabited, will, m vi i tht less, bo valuable
to him as a token of your feelings towards him,
and that he should be enrolled from now as one
of the Taukt-is of 1'iji is an ho?u r which I know
ho will vi ry much piie." His Excellency
referred to the progress of tho Colony as gener
ally satisfactory, to the statistics of population
as showing a good nppan rit increase, and to th
contemplated introduction of chools for the
instruction of Eijians in the practical and
mechanical arts of th- vhi'.c men. Olago
