1 JL sf a PROGRESS. TkeLifdofthe Land is EstabHskea in Righteousness. HONOLULU, DEC. 29, 1893. TOPICS OF THE DAY. The "Star" is dreaming plea sant dreams. The ingenuous edi tor is counting his chickens be fore they are hatched. He is " .'counting noses in the Senate and naturally arrives at the conclu sion that the Cleveland Admin istration jrill bo in a minority How'bftoh have noses been coun ted and the most skiHnl politician been surprised to find that ho . had made the most stupendous miscalculation when a-vote was taken? Take the silver -question as an example. The Republican press in the States and even the "Star" in Honolulu were cock sure that Cleveland never could . carry his policy through either House or Senate. And vet when the day came the Democratic par tv stood in a solid phalanx and backed to tho letter the will o the man thev themselves had selected for thoir chief and placod at tho heud of the great Republic. And it will be the ,sarao again on the Hawaiian question. An affair of so small importance as tho Hawaiian affairs is to tho American people will cer tainly not be used for the purpose "of creating a split in the demo cratic parfy. Tho men who would desert the ranks of their party for the simple reason of spiting Cleveland .would commit political suicide, and Congress would know them no more. The few Senators of the democratic party who so far have expressed an opinion adverse to Cleveland's policy will tunijPback into the fold and state "that the' retract and change formerly expressed sentiments . because they at the time did not have the material on hand to enable them to judge tho matter, but that fully, they now fully understand and docid- odly approve of the plans and policy of the administration, and we will bet our esteemed con temporary a new hat that such willbo the easel' ' Tho Sari .

A more' preposterous and idiotie - rumor than that which the Advertiser dishes up this morning, -we haven't seen even during this period of rumors and lies. We need not repeat that the Queen and her ' supporters are now, as ever, penectiy willing to abide by whatever decision, or whatever stops it shall please the United States to take towards the settlement of. Hawaiian affairs, and have no intention of interfering- in a matter which the- voluntarily have left in the " hands of President Cleveland. , So the dime-show and tho salary of Minister Resident at Washington were not enough to gether to koep tho "body (well, we had almost said body, and soui. but ue nasn t even cot a- fraction of one) of Lorkin An drews Thurston in good enough trim to return.

Here js a season, now existing, during which thS feelings of most men except the rabid partisans, are filled with desire to let peace and good will prevail. . And the business public, how must they feel when again is raised a cry, a false cry, of, "wolf, wolf," when there is no wolf.

That a conspiracN existed between the missionaries and the then Min ister Plenipotentiary representing the United. States, J.

As bar :hm&s! of xhita their supremacy was threatened, and they were forced to resort to various means to retain their power even to the extent of "going to hell and hugging the devil" as it was so aptly put by thai missionary statesman who did so ably, in the opinion of "Lieber Heinrich" annihilate Grover Cleveland. Being rapidly pushed to the I wall the outlook politically, for the missionary, became decidedly gloomy. Finding in J. ' D. Stevens, a man after their, own ilk, a ready; dupe they waited a favorable oppor tunity to further their own poli tical plans. As "everything comes to him who waits" event ually that opportunity came. The American Elag was literally dragged in the mire, and the mis sionary Star was once more in the ascendancy. The mission aries, again in. power, began to fill tho public offices with their relatives to the exclusion of all others. Not satisfied with merely placing their relatives who resided here in"a position to feed on government "pap," they went to the extent of importing those members of the families who were eking out "precarious ex istence" in; "holy Boston" aud way down in Maine to assist them in fleecing the tax-payer. Thank God! however, this self i perpetuating military oligarchy is doomed to a brief existence. It is impossible for the American Congress to countenance tho acts of Stevens. The, dictates of justice a'nd humanity, and due regard to the "dignity of a mighty nation will restrain the members of the American Congress from allowing prejudice or personal motives to influence them in their decision in this matter. " All Hawaiians may rest assur ed that1 the United States Con gress will never plunge the United States into serious, inter national complications, nor will they bring at nation, long respect ed and admired for its policy of fairness toward weak nations into the very role hitherto justly pre sumed to be abhorred by a people whose spirit of independence has invariably . resisted tyranny and oppression.

In. comparison with Chese great papers of State" (contained in ths" Presidential message) tho little matter of dealing with the Ha waiian Islands sinks into insig nificance.

There . is nothing of party in the moral question involved in the Hawaiian diffi culty. Wo notice that it is tho strongest Bopnblican papers in tho East that are most warmly approving of the President's course. The Boston Advertiser well says: "that those who have taken the trouble to follow tho Hawaiian case from the bo ginning do not need to be re minded that every mail that reached San Francisco from Ho nolulu during the many months Mr. Blount was residing on the Islands, brought testimonies from the annexationists to the patience, reticence, thoroughness, and determination to get at the bottom facts, special envoy States.", Mr. the truth and land has done evinced b the of tho United Blount has tohl President Clove right.
