Minister of Foreign Affairs, of the renewal ol
the demand of the right of suffrage of the Jap?
anese residents, and there was khown to be mud
ferment, if not an organized ujovem.nt. amonR
Home of the Japanese in the! same direction
I had positively learned that the Ja panes*
Commissioner had sent, by the steamer Claudine
which left Honolulu with the Hawaiian Wash
Ington Commissioners. January 19, a cable
dispatch to his Government at Toklo request
lng that a powerful ironclad be immediately
sent to Honolulu, though it was known that a
.?maller Japanese warship was about to arrive
there from San Francisco. I do not intend tc
criticise the Japanese Commissioner for think?
ing he needed another Japanese warship at
Honolulu at that time. Ho was entitled to liis
own opinions, and was bound only by the in?
structions of his own Government. lt certainly
was not strange that in the peculiar circum
Ptances of the Hawaiian situation then should
bo anxiety among the Americans and the mem?
bers of the Provisional Government as t<> what
might grow out of this agitation about Japans.*
iiuffrage and certain Japanese ambitions us to
the future control of the islands.
"Sir Edwin Arnold's elaborate lotter In 'The
London Telegraph.' of January 24. had arrived
there. Arnold's Japanese residence and sympa?
thies were believed to have some relation to
much that had been said In Tokio by certain
European antagonists of American interests and
alms, and it was well known that individuals,
both In Japan and Hawaii, had enriched them?
selves in the supply of Japanese contract labor.
These persons were known ta be bitterly averse
to the passage of the islands under the Ameri?
can flag. In the Just fear that in such event
their contract labor profits would no more swell
their bank accounts. The fallen Queen's un?
scrupulous and olly attorney was known to be
ene who had shared in this kind ol Kain, and
was still the agent of this ring Of speculators.
lt was feared by the supporters of the Provi?
sional Government that the fallen Queen, the
lottery ring and palace gang would not hesitate
to promise to grant to the Japanese the right of
suffrage in the islands, provided they would
aid in restoring Liliuokalani to the throne.
Among the nearly 20,000 Japanese on the Islands
there wore said to be many who had served in
the Japanese Army at home
"The sudden appearance of the Japanese iron?
clad in Honolulu Harbor could not fall to create
anxiety and misunderstanding, lt was In those
peculiar circumstances that I felt lt my impera?
tive duty to have repented interviews with my
Japaneso colleague. He did not attempt to con?
ceal from me his wish that the suffrage ripht
should bo granted tn the Japanese residents.
He was frank and earnest on the subject. 1
was equally frank in informing him that I had
no authority to speak on that subject, but In
the then existing oiroumstHr.cr-s and In the
maintenance of our superior rights nnd inter?
ests in Hawaii 1 expressed to him tbs opinion
that the United States would resist any en?
croachment on the soil or sovereignty Of Hawaii,
and that I would maintain this position until
otherwise Instructed by my Government. These
friendly interviews, In which the long existing
friendship and mutual Interests of our respective
countries were fully gone over, gave pacifying
results to the well-informed, though they did
not at once put an ond to public anxiety as
lo tho suffrage agitation and ns to what use
the fallen Queen's supporters might make of
it. Every* stop of my action was duly reported
to the Department of State, prior to Hlount
having any knowledge on the subject. His
claim to have put an end to Hawaiian anxiety
about rumored Japanefo encroachment ls as
purdy assumptive ari his expression to me at
my house that to him the Harrison Adminis?
tration was indebted for thc strong Democratic
support which wus given it in tho threatened
war with Chill, and that Senator Morgan, now
chairman of the Senate Committee of Foreign
Affairs, could not aid much In the same direc?
tion and is not a level-headed man.
"In Mr. Blount's report, as given to thc presf,
I find the following language: 'The two load?
ing members of the committee, Messrs. Thurs?
ton and Smith, growing uneasy as to the safety
of their persons, went to Minister Stevens to
know If he would protect them In the event
of their arrest by the authorities, to which he
gave his assent.'
"It ls enough to say that there ls not a sem?
blance of truth In this assertion of Blount made
by him without his ever having hinted lt to me
or made any Inquiry ot me on the subject. He
thus gives tho signature of his indoiroment to
a charge which I never oven heard of until I
found lt in Blount's printed report.
"He says the response to the call of the
Committee of Safety lo land the mon of the
Boston 'does not appear In the files of the Le?
gation.' The meaning of this insinuation is ob?
vious. Enough to sny. there never was nny
such document. I received the invitation of
the Committee of Safety for what lt was worth,
as I received other Information on the same
sul'j.et. 1 should have ropuaatad Captain
Wiltse to have landed his force, had not the
Committee of Safety r. quertcd lt. The criti?
cal clrcumstntues existing, tho fear of In
cet'diarisi'.., tumult nnd robbery, and the dan*
ger of nlnnnlng panic in the night, mon* than
Justiiied our carrying out the Handing instruc?
tions of the Stale and Navy Departments of
July. 1S87, which held the United States .Minister
and Naval Commander responsible for the pro?
tection of American life and propel ty. 'and
for the preservation of public order.' The
facts and the logic of the situation cb arly in?
dicated our duty.
"It ls well to state here that this landing
of American forces In Honolulu had repeatedly
taken place In a period running over many
yeat-s. This happened in 1S74. in JS87, In l__f>.
and was on the eve of being done on several
other occasions. Several times prior lo the
events of January last I had been notified by
the representatives of the Queen to be In readi?
ness to receive a request to land our naval
force. Repeatedly had our naval commanders
during my official residence in Honolulu not
everything in readiness to land on informa?
tion as to signs of danger which they and their
ofllcers had gathered by being in close touch
sith the then existing state of things.
"The elements and forces af Hawaii In play
in 1.87, 18S9 and In 18.3 were, and are. essen?
tially the same, the breadth and strength of
thc prevailing elements and forces In UM being
more extensive than In the former periods.
Those who assert to tho contrary ara nol honest,
else they do not understand what they have
Written about. To say that tho overturning of
tbe Hawaiian monarchy was bogus, a mere
scare, ls as absurd as would be the claim of
those abo might assert that the fall of Louis
Philippe In ISIS and of Louis Napoleon In 1.71
waa an Illusion and a fraud.
"Blount Bquarel?asserts that 1 promised to
aid tbe Committee of Safety by force. This ls
emphatically and categorically untrue, in *e.
ply to rival parties at different times, whether
thc reports cf the Queen or her opponents, my
answer was always the same, thal the force
would not land until danger should be plainly
Imminent, and then only to protect American
life and property, and to no one did I ever hint
thst I could or would recognize any but the de
focto government, whether Monarchical oe Re?
publican, snd, sa I aald In my letter to Secre?
tary Gresham, I here reaffirm that Royalists
and their opponents had equal access to the
Legation and to Its official head. The heat

'One of the most striking evidences of Blount'a
prejudice, ex-porte nnd unwarranted atate
ments. is th** following: 'A meeting of the Com?
mittee of Safety that night, January IC. at the
house of Henry Waterhouse, ne\t door t.> Min?
ister Stevens's, determined on the dethronement
of tho Queen, and selected officers.'
"The Intent of the author of this language Is
obvious on its face. He wished it to bs under?
stood that this meeting was held near my l*SSl
dencs for the purpose of essy access to, and in
collusion with, the United Slates Minister. What
are tho facia? Henry Waterhouse is an I'nglish
merchant of wealth, of recognised character for
integrity. Intelligence and of the most exem?
plary life. He has resided in the islands since
early childhood, and i.i now ,-t member of the
Provisional Oovernment. Though living so near
me. he rarely talked Hawaiian political affairs
With me, though he could but suppose that my
private convictions must i.e in harmony with
the prevailing views of all respectable Americans '
as ti. what brui been ri.inn on In tie- Islands fur I
months, of thia meeting at the in.use of Henry
Waterhouse, specified by Blount, I had no hint i
or knowledge at the time it waa held. I knew |
not of wb.on tie* mee Una waa compoei a. nor
what was its action, find m..' first Information
as to the persons assembled al that marting I
obtained from mount's report.
"It ls proper for me to say here that for three
years prior to the Queen's coup d'etat and
fall I had kept myself as thoroughly Informed
as pur-sil !(> ns to the views, plans and purposes
of the several factions ami parties (lint con
tended for control in Hawaiian political affairs.
This was my imperative duty aa I Minister, and I
lt was equally my duty to keep th.' state De
pertinent tit washington well Informed as to till
fact.** bearing Oil ths actual situation. This
necessarily compelled m.- t<> h..1.1 converastlona
with the best-informed persons of the Reform
patty, the Queen's party, and with the Wilcox
and native Hawaiian party, whose organised
efforts for months were t.> Induce or compel th.
Queen t" bresk erith her paramour, Mhrshal
Wilson, whom they regarded an ? foreigner,
who was born In Tahiti, of natl VC mother and
an English father, and who was very objection*
abie to the native Hawaiians who believed
Wilson atood between them and their sovereign,
and who, they v.-.-ii knew, Isrgely dictated al the
palace. I was certainly aa areli informed <>f
the views and plans of th" Loyalist** as I was
of those of their opponents, generally carefully
keeping my private opinions to myself.

Paler Shiite's heart and the hearts of lt- other

yesterday?that la, If the lt. other plaintiffs really
sympathtsed with Mr. Shute In his* attempt to
orr.ik th" will of Mrs. Ann Drake Seaman. As
there araa aboul M4K.WI involved, the ca*'e nt
Iracled considerable attention, although the attack
on the arlll proved feeble nnd futile, for Judge
Patterson dismissed the case, with aa allowance
of ii.uti to Joseph H. Cheats aad other counsel

The legal reason for dismissing the case seemed
to be that the plaintiff- failed to make out a case.
Then were not wanting, howevsr, those who were
of the opinion that the result might have been
reached on the principles st majority rule which
prevail In this country. The defendants would
thereby have had a clear majority of six. On this
theory the four week*-' talk would seem to be some
sort of an imitation of "Senatorial courtesy."
Mrs. Seaman lived In a magnificent marble house
on ifhllSlaMIS Heights. She left th-* bulk of tar
e-t.-tte to her cousin. Lawrence brake. The other
i.|:ilives were exceedingly disappointed, and have
brought several rnltS to break the will, without
