There was but one newspaper in Honolulu at the time, 'I be Friend,
which reported the affair in what was considered "at length"
.earsago. The Friend said:
This tlnv .lulv thirty-first, one thousand, eight hundred
and forty-three, will hereafter be referred to as memorable
in the h'istorv of the Sandwich Islands government. The
CMstenco of this government hits often been threatened, but
it'has been most signally preserved. It is easy to trace the
htipcriiitending Providence of God in every stage of its
Many months since, persons acquainted with
its condition were fully aware that a most important crisis
was approaching. It was seen that if the nation continued
independent favorable influences must be exerted on the
other side of the world. While the most amicable negotiations
were going forward an English man-of-war anchors
in the harbor. Immediate hostile action was threatened unless
the government yielded to certain demands- TJiosc
having been aecceded to, others more exorbitant were forth-coining.
The King, finding himself involved in difficulties
which were not of his own making, under n reservation,
most reluctantly made a provisional cession of his dominion
to the Queen of England.
He signed a treaty of cession while bathed in tears. At
three o'clock p m., February 23, 1843, the national flag was
taken down, while that of England was raised. Never shall
we forget the day. To the native population, ana tlic majority
of the foreign residents, of all nations, it was a day of
sadness. They knew not as their eyes would ever again
behold the flag of Kamehamcha III, waving over bis rightful
dominion. Whoever shall write an accurate history of the
period whifli has since elapsed must draw soiic dark shades
to the picture. ,,
Admiral Thomas, commander-in-chief of the British Pacific fleet,
received the news of the seizure of the Hawaiian Islands at Valparaiso
and came immediately to Honolulu, reaching here on July
'JG. He made mi investigation of the facts of the seizure and immediately
notified Kiiniehiiiiieha of his intention of restoring the rights
of the" kingdom, which he did by proclamation, which contained this
paragraph: ,. ,
Although it is the duty of every .Sovereign and his ministers
and councillors to do all in their power to prevent any ,
of their subjects from injuring those of any other nation
residing 111110m: them; nay more, that he ought not to permit
foreigners to settle in his territory unless he engages to
, protect them as his own subjects, and to afford them perfect "'
security 11s far as regards himself; yet Great Britain (will not
consider the public character of this legitimate sovereign of
a state but recently emerged from barbarism, under the fostering
enre of civilized nations, as at all implicated by aggression
of some of his subjects, provided the government
docs not sanction any of the acts of partiality or injustice
or by allowing the perpetrators to remain unpunished.
The commander in chief confidently hopes that this act of
restoration to the free exercise of his sovereign authority,
will be received by the King of Ihe Sandwich islands as 11
most powerful and convincing proof not only of the responsibility
he is under to render immediate reparation for real
wroiis committed upon British subjects of their property,
but also of the importance which attaches to the maintenance
of thosi' friendly and reciprocally advantageous relations
which have for so miiuy years subsisted between the two
nations; and he further hope? that neither His Majesty nor
his successors, will ever forget that to the illustrious Circumnavigator
C.iptaiu Cook, as the first discoverer, the inhabitants
of the Sandwich Islands owe their admittance to
the great family of civilized man, and from the lips of Vancouver
(another Englishman) Kamehamcha. heard mention
for tin- first time of the true God, which ultimately led to
the abiogiition of a folso worship idolatry and human
and In the well directed energies, the ceaseless
of the American missionaries to the establishment
of a Keligicni pure and undeliled, accompanied by the advantages
id instruction and civilization, the which
and duly cultivated, bring in their train, security of
life and property, and the respect of social order, mental
and moral improvement, internal prosperity, and the respect

note from tho following extracts from the mniiilnud press that
line 11 this city li as fur to the front as in any place
nnd that tin- success which hits followed the campaign here for 11
City Beautiful is, u.stiiinilus to workers elsewhere. To
those who have foolishly argued that the local campaign is only "an
Advertiser Nelieme" anil that elsewhere in this land of the free there
is not the opposition'to disfiguring signs, the fact that in the papers
of the firit four days of the mouth can be fouihl nntbbillboiird editorials
and news items from .New Bedford, Massachusetts, to San
Francisco, on the Pacific (.'oast, should be a conclusive reply. The
light going forward .so .well in this city is only a part of the fight
being wnged throughout two nations, from the Mexican border line
to tho Arctic Circle.
Here are some significant items:

and finally it was Mitod to refer this and all other billboards erected without

While tho tax gatherer has been diligent in maUing tho cottage nnd its
modest furnishings contribute to the' support of government, ugly billboards,
comprising 3,000,000 square feet of space, valued at .1-500,000 and returning
yearly incomes of more thnn $700,000, have escaped taxation. Councilman
John T. lliues purposes to sec that this property assumes its proportionate
share of tho burden with other property. The $11,000 these billboards would
pay nt the current late would be helpful in lessening the cmbarrnssincnt of
a $10,00U budget deficit. Ht. Louis, -Missouri, July 3.
There can iicier bo u beautiful city unywhero so long us those hideous
signs proclaim a people in wham tho artistic spirit battles vniuly with a

masterpieces of painting uud sculpture, Ipit In the glories, ,of nature herself.
Tho merest daub will soon satisfy tho man who hns learned to omluro the
unsightly, billboard. The ec is the greatest of our gifts nnd should be
jealously guarded. Memphis, Tennessee, Commercial-Appeal, July 2.
I'ublic sentiment is a powerful force and when it gets going good those
who uio in the way might as welt get oil' the track. I'ublic sentiment was
ngainst u mammoth billboard opposite tho VJest High Sihool in (lenesee street
and the billboard is going, tf there is any doubt nbout this, Daniel 11. Suter,
who is now tho dwnor oi tlio property, will dispel it.
The big billboard lias bceu an eyesore to residents of the Nineteenth Ward
for a long time. Kfforts have been made to bavo it removed, meetings have
been held nnd miscbicous boys and more mischievous adults have not considered
it bad form to loosen a bolt, pull out a nail or plaster Jarge strips
of white paper over tho gaudy colors llnunliug forth tho advantages of some
new breakfast food or pancake Hour. The morning after tho graduation exercises
at West High Schuol tho billboard was in bad shape. Part of it bad
been curried nwny and other p.irts hail been loosened. Since on ouo side it
hnda frontago of 100 feet, it appeared that it would take a long time to get
rid' of it in tills manner, but this may have been, the plan, us it had before
been torii) down twice.
It was announced this morning that Mr. buter bad purchased tho property
and jhabihc had notified tlio Itoihester Hill Posting Company that it could
not inaiutain thu billboard thcie. Hochester Times, July 3.
Albany, New York, hns devised a new method ilf coping with tho bill
board. It propone to tax the enterprise so vigorously that it will bavo to
iibandon busbipss. That, ut least, is tho theory, under ;which Jbo tax has been
ttutlior)7cil umouuting to fifty cents per sipiare foot per year,
yiicther it works out in practise will be observed with more than passing
lnteiest by every other city in tlio land, every 0110 of which has undertaken
to deal with the billboard but has been unable, apparently to do more than
Incidentally to regulate its form, height, uateiial. etc. Tho chances aro that
thu taxing method will result in bestowing a monopoly of tho business upon
the financially nblo to meet tho tax, llut in that went, doubtlexs,
there will bo n more (restricted nrea than now in which billboards will rise
to offend tho tight of the public.
i'or it is nut tho election of u .single billboard on a single lot or two
which mukes tlio billboard objectionable to the community; it is its couspicu
nus distribution all over the city nnd out into the country, on every available
upot, that ollends. b)es Moines, Iowa, Tribune, July I,
William (ioeggel lias crofted u building near tlio corner of Turk .street mill
Van Ness avenue, and now lie finds that ho cannot lease tho property on
account of the high billboards nt that street crosing. Nnturally, Mr. (Ioeggel
protests, ami he bus the right to protest. I'or tlio supervisors, by ordinance,
decided that those billboards should come down, ami Mr, Uoaggel and a hundred
thousand other elti.ens took thu supervisors nt their word and assumed
(hut tho ordinance meant what it said.
If tho supervisors yield to the blandishments of Charles J. (,lrecn, tho
eminent landscape, disliguior, they will do not only a grave injustice to individuals
like Mr. (ioeggej, wlioo privato property is harmed, but also a far worse
injury to the city which has trusted them with authority.
Then, too, there is another angle of view, worth considering. The law
of tlio .Statu now forbids tho erection of n fence nioro thnn ten feet high
along the boundaries of city lots. It il altogether likclythat tlio eourtB would
hold tlio billboard shutting in to many vacant lots to' lie fences within the
meaning of the statute.
The law of the State, probably; tho ordinance of the city, certainly; and
tho sentiment of (ill who have good taste and love of beauty, most surely
lire, against tho disfigurement of tho streets. You tire citizens,
Tljls is our home. Don't let your homo bo nindo ugly. Sun t'ninclsco Examiner,
A communication printed on this page describes with particularity n condi
tion with respect to billboards which rellects no credit upon this city. The
writer uses strong language, und is amply justified by tlio situation. As we
understand it, the law eannot ns the l.iw now stands, bo invoked to abate
wliti t s obviously a disgrace umlvn nuisance, llut owners of property ought
to feel that they nro holder to somo moral responsibility, while oven if that
reuse is weak, an appreciation of what Is , lit and what is unfit should operntq
to ellect improvement. New- llcdford, "Massachusetts, Standard, July 3.

JUDGE LINDSEY ON THE GRIDDLE.
Judge Hen H. of Denver, who has been recuperating on
the Atlantic Coast from nervous breakdown, is reported hurrying
back to Colorado to face a recall movement engineered by some angry
women, says the Detroit Free Press. These women want to tear the
judicial ermine oil' the shoulders of Judge landsey because, so they
charge, ho has dealt out in the exercise of magisterial discretion,
light far too light sentences to' men brought before him charged
with oll'enses against young girls. The recall party claims Judge
Lind'jcy has conducted the ulVnirs of the Denver juvenile court altogether
too loosely, leniently, without due regard to the letter of
the law and other regulations. Judge Lindsey is said to deny each
allegation against him, to court investigation and to be ready to light
at the polls to retain his office and the powers and emoluments thereof.
This attempt at application of the judicial recall will undoubtedly
Ull'ord some interesting situations and information, to say nothing of
the spectacle it provides. I-'or Judge hindsey is knoyvn throughout
Hie United Ktalei, as a reform apostle. Yet be is iiiitago'iiized by
women as being unfit for the high and ro,poiisib)u ofllee ho holds-
Moreover, here is the judicial recall falling into the hands of women
politliiians. The iw they may make of it will prove iistruelivo to
advocates ami oppowis of tho judicial teeiill far outside the

Look Ahead! Get In and Work!
B7 Jired O. Smith.
Hditor Advertisers-Hawaii lias a crisis to face and we must face
it in the mime valiant spirit as other stricken communities. The Democratic
party him complete eontiol of all brunches of the national government.
Having the power to do it, they are going to put into
practise their theories of how to control the destinies of the American
people to cH'eet what they believe will be an improvement in the
living conditions of the people as a whole.
A political party has no right to exist unless it believes in the
of its own lloctrines. We, as Republicans, must admit that the
opposition believes in itself, although we cannot see by what logic
they have arrived at that supreme faith in their peculiar fallacies of
government. The Democratic party has the might to control affairs
and is going to use it, and we, as Republicans, must acknowledge their
political right to exercise the "right to rule" that a voting majority
of the American people has given them.
This change of national political policy will cause actual destruction
of wealth in Hawaii. It hits us harder than any mainland community
because' the essential requirements of tropical industry do
not admit of rapid-changes- California can rip out it lemon grove
and substitute olives, or poaches, or grapes; Utah and Nebraska can
turn sugar-beet fields into alfalfa, or potatoes; Louisiana and Texas
can turn their cane land into cotton all these can continue the production
of crops with linrdly greater disturbance of economic conditions
than in ordinary times when expediency diotittes change. All
these communities have the help of the complex machinery of modern
trade that permits clastic readjustment. They have the people, the
markets at their door, competitive mediums of distribution. If one
factory becomes unprofitable there are always opportunities for reinvestment,
and labor turns to new employment. In the tropics, cane
land is cane land. Certain lands are suitable for colTce, certain others
lor rubber or pineapple, or cotton, or tobacco, or whatever it may
lie, and profitable substitution ot crops is impracticable. Jt an
industry is destroyed and fields abandoned, tropical " Mother Nature"
has a way of covering up the scars of man s impotent handiwork 111
a manner that is appalling. Torrential rains and 11 year's fallow
bring back the jungle. Cane land must continue to grow cane even
if the results are but to exchange one dollar for another.
Under the plantation system we cannot quickly readjust our .sys
tem of management. Labor must be retained and employed. A
plantation without a labor supply is a figment of n bad dream. Tho
machinery of production can be slowed down, but stop it in mid-action
and nothing remains but a scrap-pile.
The abrupt cutting off of dividends jerks the solid ground out from
beneath tin, feet of a great many people who, for years, have been
consumers and not active producers.
The destruction of capital is as complete as that inllicted by the
Ohio floods- Dayton gathered herself together and said that she
would rebuild and do it better than before. Her citizens reorganized
their city, throw out all political parties, adopted the commission
system of management, and then proceeded to raise, among themselves,
a fund of $2,000,000 for the purpose of making Dayton, in
fact, what before had been their boast: "The city of a thousand
San Frnncjyso lived through its hell of (ftre' and earthquake and
has kept its position iw the premier ejty ,of the 1'ncific Coast.
Galveston came np out of tlic. waters, strengthened her dykes and
him retained her sup'reiiiifcy. us' a gulf port.
In these times of catastiophy, the weaklings rufi away, and, as they
run, magnify the horrors oLtbo destruction that was behind them.
The strong men, lX and fight it;, out.
In this crisfs'Hawaii needs men who can, not those who can't.
There are opjiOkuhities to be grasped. Thank (Jod for tho future;
look ahead; gut in' and let the dead past bury its dead.

Hawaii's Warwick, ihe Hon.' Willirtm'Xeurof, California. That mtign'
zine, in its current issue,, says of the' Qaiifoynian who is just now
more interested in the Islands than the Islnuds are 111 him:
"Kent is now serving bis second term, and is a'menijier of a curious
thing called tho Committee on Industrial Arts and Expositions, an
institution which does little work and has 11 very ploasnnt ofllee to
do it in. Kent is a Vale man, and wanders about Washington with
his bauds in bis pockets and xa kind of permanent sunburn 011 his
face. At home .he is a wealthy dealer in live htock nnd lands, nnd
has been 11 business adventurer in many other fields. All of which
adds to his independence, botjh 'economic and mental-
"As to policies, Kent has-clear ideas and expresses them crisply.
What he thinks about that fake 'national issue,' the tariff, may be
gathered from a story he told at the timo Taft conceived bis one
policy of Canadian reciprocity. Kent said:
" 'It i,s argued that by taxing one industry for the benefit of another
industry, and Vice versa, wc create a home market that is productive
of wealth. This brings to inind a story told by David .Starr
Jordan concerning the eagle and tlui blue-tailed lizard. It sco'ms Hint
the eagle one day swooped down upon tho lizard and bit oft and ate
the lizard's tail; whereupon the eagle acquired enough energy to, lay
tn egg. The lizard climbed the trite, sucked the egg, and, through
tho encouragement thus afforded, grew 11 ficw tail. This process
continued through many years, apparently, without much profit t'o
either party save as it added to the interest of existence'
"Kent is anti-Taft, plays more or less with the La
Follette people, and with any party that he likes; is n single tnxer,
believes in old-age pensions, tho futility of much human endeavor,
and hates the ,cigar smoker and spittoon varioty of politics. Last summer,
just as the Chicago convention was getting good and hot, Kent
deserted the field for a class reunion at New Haven. He is a prime
example of congressional radicalism that is running to waste in a
bad legislative system and onglit to be hitched up and conserved for
tho public good."
