Gentlemen. Althoupjli Hia Majesty's Min
iwtors liavealreafiy refrlied to flic Arlflrcsg to
His Majesty, which you presented to him on
. the 2!(ii ttUiiDO, and whids r j.iy Uiey eon
I tiJeml dtst to yu, and have (ken mat, as
they believe, ilie main points referring to the
subject of repopulation, tlicre are still other
important aspects of your AoMress which the
I sittutiou demands siiioiild be clearly under
: stood tioth by yon, lieiiticmen, and tlie pnMic,
and I hope that what I have no to say with
; reference to it, may not lie considered by you
either uncalled for, or altogether unprofitable.
It must be bow evident to all of you, al
j though no clear and unmistakable language to
' this effect may be found in it, that the general
I tenor of yoirr Address ns it rwtdsi, nor. Gentle
men, as perhaps you all intended, is to iin
I press upon His Majesty, that tlierc are very
' important national ends and objects which His
Minigtori were expected to accomplish, and
in which they have failed, and that great dan
ger to the prosperity and independence of this
country, has arisen iti consequence of this
failure, and that therefore His Majesty would
do well to Cull to his id those who might
be more successful in future. This, (Jen
tlemcn, is a legitimate object, and no which
your duty to your Sovereign aud to your coun
try may often call upon you to endeavor to ac
complish. Xeither would i: be always neoes
Saty in order to give effect to your wishes, al
though perhapa desirable, to be cither precise
or correct in your reasons for recommending
such a change, for it might well be the case,
that your object was not to inaugurate inter
minable discussions about measures aud poli
cies, but to have placed at the head of affairs,
men who would be more successful in effecting
what you require, than in explaining why they
have not done so. This is virtually what
jonr Address conveys, and whatever views
mauy of you really had on this point, a public
document of thin character and gravity must
be held to mean just whatever may be fairly
gathered from its contents.
I address you in my own name now, because,
as you are well aware, one of my colleagues
has only just arrived in the country, another
has only recently joined us, whilst the third
was not called to office tiii s cotnparstirely
late day, and they cannot justly beheld rcspoti
sililefiirthefailuret.i accomplish object which
if accomplished at all, must have been mainly
brought about through agencies, instituted be
fore they joined the Cabinet.
Your Address, Gentlemen, calls Ilia Majesty's
attentiou to two great points, namely : the im
portance of staying the decline of the native
race, and the importance of acquiring new peo
ple from abroad. As the measures which have
to lie adopted for each of these ends are clearly
distinct, it is well to keep them so in our
minds. For, when considering what measures
we shall adupt, it merely tends to confuse the
question and to mislead us, to assume that the
importation of Asiatic races will assist in re
cuperating the Hawaiian race ; or,to speak
more correctly, will pioilucc a mixed race
whit h shall have mure vitality than the Ha
waiian, an affirmation, which as you will per
ceive on reflection, is open to the gravest ques
tion. There are then really two separate and
distinct ends and objects, one to save the Ha
waiian race, another, to import a foreign one.
I am well aware, Gentlemen, that although
these two questions are by no means very
clearly separated in Many parts of your Ad
dress, and the solemn invocation of a former
sovereign for one of these objects is made use
of asj applying to lioth, you did not intend
to suggest to nis Majesty to change His Min
isters because tliey had failed in staying the
decrease of the Hawaiian race, which has lwen
steadily proceeding for nearly, perhaps, fully, a
ccntnry, nor because they had neglected any
thing that the laws of this country and the ap
propriation of money for sanitary purposes, rcn.
dered possible, nor indeed that they had neglec
ted anything which you, as m body, or the ma
jority of you had recommended, or were prepar.
ed to recommend them to .tttempt with ttratnb
jeet. Xo, Gentlemen, the failureof theMinistry
whick you put forward in sufficiently clear
terms, is, that they have not indnced as many
Asiatics and Others to migrate to this country,
as you consider they might have induced.
What you claira as the inaoiiwt of Hk U ajes
ty's Ministers in not importing pcoule is the
one great ground of 'tour complaint, the head
and front of their offending.
Yon also stale, Gentiemen, or at least you
leave it to be inferred, as I have already said,
language, snd in which question the Ha
waiian race must be so especially interested,
both as to matters of fact and of sentiment
and they are entitled to be consulted in both
it would have been eminently proper that they
shcnld have been largely represented, and it
must now strike every one as remarkable that
there appears the name of one man only ap
pended to your Address who can claim any
the least drop, of Hawaiian blood.
Upon the principle with which I set out,
that a document of this sort must be held to
mean just what can bo gathered from the face
of it, your Address is the Address of a few Ha
waiian subjects of foreign extraction and of
a few foreigners of Honolnlu associated in
firm and compact body, asking, may I not say
demaiidiny His Majesty, and that in very objec
tionable terms, to dismiss his Ministers, who
have not brought people cnongli into this coun
try, and in the name of all that is great, good
stud patriotic to put those in their places who
will for Gentlemen I will not insnlt your
understandings by pretending to imagine that
you intended to unite thus enthusiastically on
this occasion, to request His Majesty to inangn
raiesuch a" radical" but undefined, "change
in the policy of this eonntry," that "without
further temporizing or delay-' you may be se
cured, almost all the national blessings which
can be derived from the tiest possible forms of
Government, at the very least possible expense :
although I am prepared to admit that such a
request may really appear interpersed through
out your -Address.
There can be no doubt Gentlemen, that the
importation of people may bo a proper object,
and one that is of much interest to most of us
especially at tuts time when there is every
probability that n treaty which will add largely
to the value of our main products is almost
daily expected to be concluded, and people
will be in the greatest demand in all the main
brunches of industry. It so hapens al that
in trying to effect our object we may all have
the great satisfaction in feeling that our own
interest and our patriotisinmay fairly be com
bined. Perhaps however Gentlemen, if you
had the framing of your Address to do over
again, in asking for that which would be so
palpably and so directly of value to many of
you, you would be more careful to see, that
your patriotism and your loyalty, which no one
doubts, should not be asserted too prominently,
and above all you would be careful to see, that
the danger which you apprehend to the State,
in case your wishes are not complied with,
should not tie exaggerated, in onler to place
your patriotism and loyalty in a stronger light.
Yon Would certainly in again addressing
your Sovereign, avoid everything that had
even the appearance of a threat or that would
permit a suspicion to ariso of an attempt at
intimidation, or unnecessary alarm, either to
wards King, Ministers or people ; and you would
not I am sure, think it necessary to remind His
Majesty of such an event as the riot on his
election two years ago ; by tho otherwise
meaningless statement that the " official expen
diture" of this country is not " at all times
sufficient for tho preservation of its own peace"
for you would see at a glance that the official
expenditure of no country on earth ever sufficed
for that. No Gentlemen, no country will ever bo
rich enough, no country will ever lie powerful
enough, to at all times" maintain theprcserva-
rJon of its own peace" until God in his mere .
moderates the ambition and sulidues the evil
assir,na of mult. Hut ntnivc all, ,ou rvoulil
not, whatever explanation you might couple
with it, first inform His Majesty that you
strove "for his Accession to the Hawaiian
Throne," and then tell him that " this must
lie done,"
What must bo dono ? Mut, as your Address
reads, " every device ami measure of His
Majesty's Government bo directed towards the
acquisition of people " ? Must Asiatic men
and women be imported into this country
whether the King and those of his raco who
are most interested, like it or not?
No, Gontlemon. The Legislature of this
vute expense, a certain proportion of women
also, should be brought, the expense of which,
the State might bear. Wo are not, Gentlemen,
a nest of unfledged birds waiting wttfl onr
beaks open to be fed, and if we require peoples
to assist us in our various enterprises, wo mutt
put our own shoulders to the wheel to get
them, and not rely entirely upon His Majoaty's
Government. Self interest may alter all if we
may not rely on the government, prove to.be ns
good method as unv that can be deaired for
the rcpopulnrion of this country from abroad.
As has been well observed on this subject,
there aro three main modes, and three only, by
which Countries are usually repopulated from
abroad ; namely, by conquest, from religious
enthusiasm, and by self interest. The last must
be our main resourco. The steady increase of
the products of Hawaii, is an earnest
that our general population may increase, even
without the expected treaty, for the portion of
the population t tat you more especially repre
sent, Gentlemen, those of foreign and mijted
extraction, has been steadily increasing, and
forms a nucleus for a nation, with an indefinite
power of further increase, independent of our
hopes of increase of the pure Hawaiian race)
or of the immigration, which, under even or
dinary circumstances 'rill occur. Upouthedue
onsideration of these facts, their bearing upon
Gazette. What would bo the prospect for the
Ministry, thus deprived of every " popular "
support they might fairly hope) for, fcrcsjrsi
that of the people ? 0 Tcmpora ! O Mores !
Bui Gentlemen it may be better for us all,
leaving on one side rhetorical flourishes1 which
seem to be now somewhat in fashion, to place
in the simplest possible language just the no
sition of this matter to-day a position which
most of yon Have already gathered from what
precexfoa, for there are those who having com- '
manrl of press and types and therefore to a '
certain extent having influence in tliiacomum
pity. who with the liest intentions never see
anvthing hut what is placed before them in the
plainest language, anil not alw:iys then, ami
which has caused this kingdom much trouble.
The-yxwHtfon ie just thrs. and one which the
address and the .-ircamnt.inccs connected wtih
it have intensified; and forced prominently be- j
fore the public. On the .51 at of this month,
the payment of money for immigration stops, '
and there is an end of that important part of tho
programme, and however much " tho preaa "or
a few desigirng men may rant and rave, unless I
the King and his Ministers see tit und desire
M manage this mutter in the Legislature by i
getting another appropriation of money for the
importation of people; und in snch manner in
may seem good to them, there i3 no power as
this country which am oblige them to do it, i
and there is no power ont of it, that would.
It is evident that a great want of " help"
which we all see note is perhaps close at hand,
as well as a general ami a very proper desire
for the best possible government has probably

to you
It may bo well, Gentlemen, in forming an
opinion as to what your Address conveys on
the face of it, to notice what view the pnblie
Press of this city takes on this point. A por
tion of it at once, and without hesitation, ac
cepts the interpretation of your Address,
namely as the desire for a change of Ministry,
which I havo already stated must be placed
upon it, and it hastens to inform the public of tho
array of influential names appended to the doc
ument, and which comprise, it says, with a suf
ficiently close adherence to the truth, " five out
of eight of the foreign born nobles of the King
dom, the leading members of the bar, all of our
leading morchauts, the whole of tho editorial
fraternity, along with numbers of tlie most re
spected and influential citizens of every creed,
clime, and pursuit to bo found in this coinmu
n'ty." Truly a formidable and a goodly ar
ray, and that there may be no mistake as to
what it means, the same article goes on to say,
" that in our opinion those who are called
upon and who aro capable of furnishing to tho
government, plans or more definite nnd practi
cal suggestions for the repopulntion of the
country, should have that opportunity to carry
them out which the present incumbency has
enjoyed, and at the same time has so signally
neglected." And again in anothor article
suggesting tho system of a Ministerial Pre
mier it endeavors to give effect to the recom
mendation for a change of Ministry by under
valuing tho offorU and the character of every
Minister of this country, past and present, that
it can call to mind, reserving only the " loyal
and indefatigable Wyllie." And it winds up
with a patriotic determination to forget in the
emergency, past enmities aud tho bickerings of
years, in the following appeal. "And if our
cotcmporary will join with us in. sustaining a
healthy public sentiment for reform of govern
ment, we may yet hope for the formation of a
responsible Ministry und the estublishment of
an order of administration of public affairs, that
shall stand or fall only when it receives or is
denied popular support," Who are they that
thus invoke popular Riippnrt? You must have
perceived, Gentlemen, that thoso who man
aged for you this Address, havo in this whole
matter ignored the pure native clement,
they h&ve neglected to give duo consideration
to that part of tho Hawaiian population
which has really tho most iuterest in tho
matter, and tho nioBt right to be heard on this
important question. This oversight, however
is to bo explained, if those gentlemen were
more strongly impressed with the advantages
which this-eountry wjlL derive from a change
of Ministry, than tho particular steps which
would lie ultimately unnecessary for the iutro-
lntraced many ot von.

Such being the position of affairs, and for
, tho literal truth of which I appeal aa well to
each and all of you, Gentlemen, as to the
I People of the laud from Hawaii to Niihau, it I
seems to be my clear duty nut to offer my re- i

In conclusion, and with reference to the
style of tho Address, Gentlemen, which you
havo presented to His Majesty, you iww no
doubt regret with me, that it has unfortunately
gone before His Majesty, beforo tho country,
and before the world, with a ringing tone of
bold assertion, exaggeration ana insolence,

Had it been your duty, as it has been mine, to
consider this question in its different bearings,
you would havo perceived cro this, how deli
cate a matter it is, to co to this Hawaiian
Legislature and ask thorn for liberal grants of
money with the object of introducing a foreign
people, to reduce the value of their own peo
ple's laW, which they may urge may be the
direct effect of it. But yon may answer, it is
for the good of the country and for the peoplo's
own good, nay you will appeal as you have
already appealed to every motive, even to se
curing the independence of tho country, or as
suring the safety of the Throno. But Gentle
men, the most intelligent Legislatures on earth,
are not always guided in tho measures they

the head of affairs, was the object of the framers
of your Address, as no doubt it was, it was a
grand mistake, a mistake which ought to be,
and which is, fatal, absolutely fatal, to any
such result as a change of Ministry at tho
present moment, that there should not have been
appended to it the name of nno single man of
pure Hawaiian blood.
There would seem to be also another re
markable omission in tho " get up " of this
Address the large aud important class of
mechanics and others of foreign extraction in
Honolulu are not represented. It would surely
have been proper that on a question which it is

as traitors. In this case it would bo very
easy for tho native Hawaiian to do so. This
Address, and the unfortunate tone of it, may
offer an incentive to them to band together and
forgetting the now nearly obliterated differ
ences amongst them, unite in the Legjgaturc
to resent what they may easily constate, al
though it was not so intended, into an insnlt
towards their Sovereign, and to repel what
they may consider an aggression towards them
selves. "Is'liotsme propose et Wen dispose."
But, Gentlemen, even though the Legislature
should refuse te appropriate money for the in
troduction of people, and they would have
every right to do so if it so pleased them, is
this country then ruined and it's independence
gone? Liy no means. If the treaty we are
expecting aad which will benefit most of alio
materially goes into effect, Tmpulation must
come. It will come as (frias come to every
coiirrtry on tne face of the carfli, in the natural
course of events, and if these events are unfa
vorable itfll be all, but impossible to oppose
them. But the agriculturists and other, win

which any Legislature or any Ministry ever
completed. Should we obtain this treaty it
may be well that a regulation should be en
forced, maki ng it compulsory that if large bod
ies of men are brosght to the cwiBliy 'at f
peratc the Hawaiian race' by introducing
another 1 raving affinity to it, and which race
possessing that affinity exists In Asia, and fur
ther thnt although there may be drflrcBlties in
obtaining snch a people, those difficulties can
be overcome by proper management. Here
are three separate and distinct affirmations.
With respect to the two last I have little to
add to what His Majesty's Government has
already stated, but it is only just ami proper
that it should be clearly placed beforo you,
(icatletaea, aud beforo His Majesty, andbofori
tlie people of this country, with regard to the
first affirmation, what most of yon will on a
little reflection admit, that the introduction
into this country of any considerable number of
men and women of any of the Asiatic races or
of any race whatever, having more vitality
than the Hawaiian or than the Polynesians,
(and all this is assumed in the promises, or it
would be useless to bring the m at all) wooed
to say the least, be just as likely to nelp to
exterminate this Hawaiian race, to annihilate
this " interesting people," their language and
their associations, sj it would be to u recupe
rate" theiu by "amalgamating with them. Axjl
yet Gentlemen, hare you not been led. it may
be unwittingly, in one passage of your Address
to convey the idea to His Majesty, that any
one who doubted the proposition that the Ha
waiian race 0Blie so recnperatecla-ould be
" false to the best interests of this country,
false to the canse of Hawaiian independencr),
and disloyal to His Majesty's Boyal State and
Person'? 13 T:
Again Gentlemen it cannot have escaped the
notice of many of you that in an Address of
which the main object contemplated is the ex
penditure of patsUc money fn importing large
numbers of men and women of a foreign nee
of tho country and add tho. most to it wealth
: should have had a Totce. Hero is another
( compact and united regiment of men, whose
; interests are identical, having marry times
I the numbers that you count, Gentlemen.
and, who, may we not say, are perhaps your
equals in intelligence, and of whom at least it
may certainly be said, that they possess,
" Mens sana in corpore sano," who have been
utterly ignored in this affair, although they
have more direct interest in this question of
the importation of labor than havo many of
those who append their immostotliia Address.
But this may yet be remedied if it wan through
an oversight that their names are not there,
and when this Address may be supplemented
by the signatures of these men, and the signa
tures of such a fair proportion of the native
Hawaiians as may be entitled to represent ih
ptople, noed I tell yon, Gentlemen, how gladly
I would then resign my portfolio and join you
in helping whomsoever His Majesty might pnt
in my place to accomplish as far as may be
proper, that in which you may consider I have

your Address, Gentlerneu, may have been led
into making one omission, but it must have

a few at least uf the class et uiedianics
from having this, opportunity of displaying
their loyalty and patriotism. It may indeed
be intelligible why both these important
