CAPT. PALMER SPEAKS.
He Explains the Position of the
Mk. Editor: As I am asked almost
daily what are the opinions of
the newspaper I represent, or what
sentiments I entertain towards royalty
or republicanism, perhaps you will
find me space to make a general statement
in your columns.
The Transcript is perhaps the oldest
daily paper in Boston, in that it has
never really changed its tone, policy
or proprietorship for over sixty years;
its price is fifty per cent, higher than
any other; its general tone is
although it has never hesitated
to support a Democratic candidate for
any office when that candidate was
just the man for the place; it therefore
does not merit that offensive slang
term, "mugwump," because in condemning
President Cleveland it did
no differently from what it always has
done; it bolts no nominations, because
it is not and never was a party paper.
It publishes but one edition at
is the favorite paper of the
best educated class of my native city,
containing not one word, in
matter or otherwise, which may
not be read aloud in the family. It
opposes annexation, not by reason of
the Hawaiian situation, but from regard
to I he conservative
policy of the United States. In
your local difficulties it has from the
ii'st allowed such writers as Hon.
Gorhani D. Oilman, Dr. C. F. Nichols,
Mr. Nath. Haskell Dole (all of whom
are in sympathy with the Provisional
Government) the free expression of
their views in its columns. Further
than this, you know as much of its
position towards royalty or
as I do.
I have never been employed iu its
office or editorial rooms. But under
three editors, and for more than thirty
years, no person outside that pale has
contributed as much to its columns.
It is to be supposed, therefore, that
the compauy understood what they
were doing "when they voted to send
me here. I read in the papers that
you had one correspondent "who did
noble work for annexation;" it is
known that you had another who
came to sustain his paper in a position
already taken; you have had others
with British affiliations, etc. Now,
I cunic without the least instruction
as to the attitude I should assume;
I may be mistaken, but I do not believe
a correspondent has the least
right to any public position.
He is here as a chronicler of
the opinions of each and all; that to
my view clearly states his position.
And when he records these views,
each has the right to see the position
of his party stated at its very best, in
the strongest language, the most convincing
manner possible. If President
Dole favors him with opinions,
he must not take each point of His
Excellency's views, set it up as a nine-pin
in one phrase, to knock it down
with his own ball in the next; if he
talks with half a dozen of the native
race, his duty is equally clear, to give
to their half formed sentences the Lest
expression of the they intend
to convey; whether itisutteily
false or no, is nothing to
the recorder. He is no more than the
court reporter, writing as spoken the
witnesses' evidence, and the pleas of
the plaintiff and defendant. After his
official duty is done, after he has resigned
his office, then and then only,
save iu matters of fact or in vouching
for his statements, is he free to write
a line of his own sentiments. This is
my aim, however imperfectly attained.
When leaving Boston, I was told
that this position would be intolerable
here; the statement was made to me
by a person who has lived in Honolulu.
But I have been here nearly three
weeks, and do not find it so. I have
resided here before. I lived in Virginia
during the civil war; my1oyal;y
was never doubted, yet I was welcome
in many houses where all done by Lee
and Stonewall was heroism
By those of widely divergent opinions,
I have been received with the
utmost kindness and courtesy; every
effort has been made to fully inform
me on any subject where information
was desired; it would be difficult for
me to decide whether royalist,
or Hawaiian had shown the
most friendly zeal. Having lived in
all parts of the wide world, I consider
that the .very cream of humanity,
whateveryour politics, is at Honolulu,
especially in hospitality to strangers;
it is not equalled under the sun for
this virtue, nor does It seem to be confined
to any single class. A man must
be determined to make enemies if,
with the single proviso of knowing
how to hold his tongue, he finds them
here, when he is a stranger; yes,
even in such trying times as those
through which ycu a're now passing.

I,nrl nml Master's Autocratic Actions.
DnrARTMEST of Foreign Affairs, )
Honolulu, H. I., Jan. 11, 1891. J
To His Excellency Albert S. Willis,
United States Envoy iExtraordinary
and Minister Plenipotentiary, Honolulu.
Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge
the receipt of your communication
dated Jan. 1st, in which you refer to my
communication to you dated Dec. 27tn
as "containing statements which I am
fully prepared to show are not warranted
by the facts, seriously affecting fho President
of the United States and the representatives
of the United States in this
country; and that those charges and
statements, if accepted as the official
views of jour Government, demanded
prompt answer and equally prompt
action on the part of the Government
of the United States, to the end
that the condition of affairs therein described
should be remov.d by the removal
of the alleged causes."
You also refer to the intervening correspondence
between us, stating that
my above-mentioned communication
"brings for the first time the official information
that the warlike preparations
described by you were caused by and
intended for the diplomatic and military
representatives of tho United States."
You further state that, believing upon
further consideration I would realize the
great injustico of my statements, you, on
the 29th nit., wrote suggesting thc withdrawal
of my communication of tho 27th
nit, and your reply, and that no copies
be given to tho public or made a record
by either Government; and on tho 31st
stated to Mr. Damon that your note to
me was "prompted by no improper or
unfriendly spirit, but was intended to
continue the amicable relations heretofore
Yon further state that in my letter of
December 29th, there is no "withdrawal
or modification of the statements com
plained of, but on the contrary, an ex
pression of readiness, implying ability,
to furnish thc specmcations requested.
You also acknowledge the receipt of
my note to yon, dated Jan. 1st, stating
that it was not my intention to withdraw
any of my letters, which note you state
is unsigned by me. The omission of the
snmature was unintentional.
Yon conclude by stating that "I now
have to ask that you furnish me at jour
earliest convenience with the desired
specifications, as I wish to make immediate
I will comply with your request. Before
doing so, however, I desire to say,
in reply to your communication of the
1st mst., that 1 nave made no "cnarges
against the President of the United
States or its representatives. On tho
contrary, in order that tlicre might be no
misapprehension concerninir tho matter.
I specifically stated to you in my com
munication of the 27th ultimo, "that 1
do not claim or intimate that tins unfortunate
situation has been intentionally
created by you or the Uovernment
which you represent" I still disclaim
any intention of charging you or your
Government with intent to produce the
results and conditions described in my
communication of JJecember irtli.
The object of my communication was
to formally bring to your attention cer
tain facts and conditions existing m
this eonntry, what, in my opinion, were
the causes of the same, and to obtain
from you such information and assurances
as would tend to allay the prevailing
excitement and apprehension.
Concerning your statement above referred
to, that my communication of
December 27th contains statements
which you are fully prepared to show
are not warranted by tho facts, I would
say that it would give me great pleasure
to become convinced that the alleged
conditions and facts referred to, did not
in truth exist The matters hereinafter
stated constitute in part the basis for my
belief in the existence of the conditions
referred to. and tho causes producing the
same; but I shall be glad to receive from
you any evidence tending to remove from
my mind the belief that they or any of
them did exist, and assure yon that upon
becoming convinced that I am under
misapprehension concerning any of such
alleged facts, the allegations concerning
the same will bo immediately withdrawn.
Concerning your statement that my
letter of Dca 29th contains "no withdrawal
or modifications of the statements
complained of," yon will pardon me if I
saythat I was not aware that any complaint
had been made concerning any
statement made by me, yonr reply having
been primarily directed to eliciting more
specific information concerning certain
Referring to the suggestion contained
in your note of the 29th, and your interview
with Mr. Damon, that I withdraw
my communication of Dec. 27th, I would
say that to do so would have been in the
nature of an admission that the statements
therein contained were incorrect,
which unfortunately in the absence of
information which yon say yon are prepared
to present, and with certain other
evidence before me, it was impossible for
me to do.
Allow me to assure you tliat it was
with deep gratification that I received
yonr assurance that your communication
to me of the 29th of December was
prompted by no improper motive or unfriendly
spirit, bnt was intended to continue
the amicable relations heretofore
existing and to further assure you that
this and all other communications from
this Government are written in the same
spirit, and I trnst that no statement
presenting the claims and views of this
Government concerning nny matter of
law or fact, may, by reason of its directness
and distinctness be construed as
otherwise than of a similar character.
In compliance with your request for
certain specifications concerning my
letter of Dec. 27th, I reply thereto as
First You inquire as to tho meaning
of the word "attitnde" as" used in mj
I reply that thc word was used by me
in its ordinarily accepted sense, meaning
tho bearing, the postnre as indicating
purpose of thoso referred to.
Yon further say:
"Will yon point out where and when
and how the representative of tho United
States assumed any attitndo toward tho
supporters of tho Provisional Government
or that Government itself, other
than ono essentially and designedly expressive
In reply I would say that the attitude
of a person is to be ascertained only by
inferences drawn from tho known words
and acts of such person, and the conditions
and circumstances under which
they take place.
Some of the words and actions of tho
United States and its representatives in
this connection, and tho conditions and
circumstances attendant thereupon, from
which its intentions and attitndo toward
tho Provisional Government must be inferred,
are as follow:
1. A treaty of annexation had been
negotiated between tho Provisional Government
and the United States Government
and presented to tho Senate for
ratification. This treaty was withdrawn
by President Cleveland immediately
upon his entering office without prior
noticeto this Government or its representatives
of his intention so to do, or of
his reasons for such action.
2. Immediately thereafter the President
appointed Hon. James H. Blount a
special commissioner to Hawaii to investigate
the condition of affairs at Hawaii.
Tho knowledge of such appajntincnt
was withheld from the representative of
tho Government at Washington. The
press having announced tho appointment,
tho Hawaiian representative
to the Stato department for information
concerning tho same. Tho Secretary
of State refused to stnte tho objects
of thc mission or even to admit that a
commissioner had been appointed.
3. On the 19th day of June, 1893,
Mr. Thurston, Hawaiian Minister at
Washington, addressed a communication
toMr. Gresham. Secretary of State,
in which tho following language is
"I am directed by my Government to
represent to yon that, whilo the Hawaiian
Government has full confidence in
the good faith of tho United. States
towards Hawaii in and concerning its
treatment of tho relations between the
two countries, it seems proper that it
should be informed as to tho effect the
present nncertainty as to the ultimate
course to be pursued has upon the situation
"Thc long continued delay aud tin
certainty keeps the entire community in
a feverish state of mind, by reason of
which business is seriously affected,
capital is rendered timid, thereby hampering
all enterprises which are conducting
their business on .credit; the Govern
ment's credit and ability to borrow is
prejudiced; tho expenses of tho Govern
ment arc largely increased by tho necessity
of maintaining a considerable armed
forco for the protection of public order,
and the enemies of the Government are
encouraged to conspire against law and
order, all or which is highly prejudicial
and injurious, not only to tho Hawaiians,
bnt to the very largo nmoimt of American
capital invested in Hawaii, and the
mutual trade now being conducted
between the two countries.
"It is imiortant for the Hawaiian
Government to know the intentions
of thc United States Government
concerning annexation at as early a dato
as possible; as, if annexation is not to
take place, tho methods of treating local
conditions in Hnwaii must be radically
different from those to be pursued if
annexation is to tako place.
"It is also important that, whatever
tho intentions or the United Government
may bo, concerning tho subject
matter, the Hawaiian Government be
informed what snch intentions are before
thc same are ma 'q public, in order that it
may consider tin -situation with full knowledge
of all its ipects, and decide uixin
such course of action as may be necessary
to preserve order and protect the
interests of the jicople of Hawaii
"For thc reasons above stated I
respectfully request that a decision maybe
arrived at and communicated as
speedily as i3 consistent with the inter
ests of tho United States."
No reply has ever been made to such
1. Upon the arrival of Mr. Blount in
the country he did not commnnicate or
in any manner intimate to the Hawaiian
Government that his investigations were
to be directed toward the right of
existence of the Government to whom
he was accredited. All of his investigations
and examinations wero private, and
such persons only were examined as he
chose to call
5. An examination of his report since
published, shows that there are statements
by approximately sixty Royalist
and twenty supporters of the Provisional
That he had obtained no statement
from tho four members of tho Cabinet
voted out before the revolutionary attempt
of the Queen, althongh he has
obtained exhaustive statements from
their Royalist successors.
That he has examined only two of the
thirteen members of the Committee of
Safety, one of tho original four members
of the Executive Council of the
Provisional Government, three of the
original fourteen members of the Advisory
Council, two of the eight speakers
who addressed the mass meeting called
by the Committee of Safety on the day
prior to the establishment of the Provisional
Government, and hut ono of thc
eight field and staff officers, none of
the eleven lino officers in coujnand of
the forces of the Provisional Govern
ment, and none of the five twmmissionars
sent to Washington, although rdl t f c nch
men omitted to be examined wero eye
