Organizing the Natives to Control the
"Bob" Wilcox Their Nominee for
Congressional Delegate.
Correspondence cf The EvenlDg Star.
HONOLULU, September 20, 11)00.
With the approach of the November elec
tion little Hawaii participates somewhat in
the political agitation now in full swing on
the mainland. Our politics, however, do
not range themselves at all on the same is
sues as yours. It is true that we have the
republican and democratic parties both
formally organized. Primary and district
elections have been held for the choice ot
delegates. The more general conventions
are about to meet and nominate tickets for
representatives and senators for the terri
torial legislature. There are also to be
nominated candidates for our territorial
delegate to Congress.
But in addition to the two regular parties,
both of them new in Hawaii, a third one has
been organized, named by its promoters
simply the "independent party." its plat
form, as enunciated by its active leaders,
sounds harmless. The true' inwardness ot
the party's aims, however, entirely falls to
be expressed in its ostensible platform, al
though it has been amply conspicuous in
the address of the promoters, the chief of
whom is the noted "Bob" Wilcox, alias
"Garibaldi," and professional revolutionist.
His colleagues are Kaulia and Kalauokalani,
two native gentlemen, who once accompa
nied Senator Pettigrew to Washington to
help defeat annexation.
The constantly avowed object of these
leaders is to combine the votes of the na
tive Hawaiians so as to defeat the foreign
vote as represented by the republican and
democratic parties. Congress has removed
the income qualification which previously
restricted the suffrage for senators. Nearly
every native can read and write the Ha
waiian language, and so can meet the edu
cational qualification required, as the numer
ous Portuguese citizens generally cannot do.
This gives the natives at the polls about
twice the number of votes that the foreign
ers will have. So Wilcox tells the natives
that now the game is entirely in their own
hands and they must improve their oppor
tunity. It is their first duty to upset this
government by foreigners, which has lasted
so many years. Now the Hawaiians have
the power and must use it. They must
elect to the legislature only Hawaiians.
who shall override the policy of the usurp
ing and detested whites. Gaining an over
whelming majority in the legislature, they
must rearrange all appropriations and all |
offices for the benefit and pleasure of the
native Hawaiians.
Strength of Independent* Vncertnln.
How far these anti-foreigner plans will
carry with the native voters is not yet
clear. Wilcox and his cumiKinions have
energetically canvassed most of the group,
and unquestionably have gained a large fol
There are certainly, however, a sufficient
number of the more intelligent and influ
ential natives avowedly for both the demo
cratic and republican parties to make it
quite doubtful whether the independents
can secure a majority In the legislature.
The democrats have been eagerly coquet
ting with the independents to combine their
forces and so insure victory. They make
the point that the democrat Cleveland op
posed annexation and sought to restore the
queen to the throne, so that the democratic
party Is the proved friend of the natives,
and its success at the election will secure
native interests better than the success of
a party avowedly hostile to foreigners.
There are. it is pleasant to report, a very
large number of the more reputable and in
fluential classes of Hawaiians. including
part whites, who are avowedly in support
of the republican party. They believe that
the best interests of the islands. Including
natives as well as whites, are bound up J
with that party. They consider that the re- j
publicans in Congress showed peculiar re- I
gard to the Hawaiian people, and concern j
that they should have no cause to feel their
rights impaired as to a full share In the i
elective franchise. So it would be both in- j
justice and most unwise policy to side with
an opposing party and discard the alliance
of these kind and considerate friends.
Col. Samnel Parker.
A representative Individual among the?e
friendly Hawaiians is Col. Samuel Parker, 1
who is already practically the republican ;
nominee for delegate in Congress. Parser
is a grandson of old John Parker, a trusted
white lieutenant of the Conqueror Kameha
meha. He married a high chiefess, receiv
ing from the king an enormous tract of wild
land in the interior of Hawaii, which be
came the home of myriads of wild cattle.
"Sam" Parker Inherited the land and cat
tle. and Is still very wealthy, although,
through lavishness and careless business
habits, he was a few years ago on the
verge of bankruptcy. The great apprecia
tion of values consequent upon annexation
put "Sam" upon his feet again. He is a man
of most generous and honorable disposition,
of good education, of much personal force
and of sufficient intelligence usefully to rep- j
resent the commercial and material needs 1
of the territory.
In 1SU3, when the queen made her attempt
by coup d'etat to establish a despotic consti
tution, Parker had just been appointed her
premier. He mildly sought to dissuade her
from her purpose, only rousing her to fury.
After the revolution which ensued he was
a faithful but not active royalist, having
fallen Into much pecuniary embarrassment.
In due time he came to recognize the neces
sity and lnevitableness of annexation. He
is now a cordial supporter of the new
regime, and of the republican party. Col.
Parker represented Hawaii in the conven
tion at Philadelphia, and was one of the
committee to notify President McKinley of
his nomination. Parker would no doubt be
a persona grata on the floor of the House.
The Independent Nominee.
Of the anti-haole Independent party "BoD"
Wilcox Is the nominee for delegp.te. As
conditions now appear he stands a very
good chance of being elected. Persona
grata in Congress he could not possibly be,
for many reasons which need not be stated
here. His knowledge of English is imper
fect. He had four years' military training
in Italy, which has enabled him to do a
little work as surveyor and engineer. He
has push and has made an irregular sort of
record in insurrectionary efforts In '80, '92
and 'U6 to overthrow the rule of the for
eigners. This enables him to pose as the
"Garibaldi" of the Hawaiians. It gains
him a certain amount of political capital
as the champion of native supremacy. He
Btands for the native vote strictly as antl
haole and the enemy of the white regime.
If elected to Congress, as Is not unlikely, he I
will represent only the more debased and <
reactionary elements among the native Ha
waiians. The very considerable Intelligent
and honorable class among them hold Bob
Wilcox in contempt.
Probable Democratic Candidate.
The democratic party here has accom
plished far less through organization than
the others. It has been hoping to affiliate
the independents, but would on no account
accept Wilcox as a candidate for Congress.
Its most probable candidate is Mr. Joseph
O. Carter, who has long been prominent as
a warm personal supporter of the ex-queen.
He Is an older brother of the late Henry A.
P. Carter, who was Hawaiian minister at
Washington some eighteen or twenty years
ago. Mr. Carter Is in vigorous health, of
successful business experience, withal of
the highest integrity. He was a most pro
nounced royalist and strenuously opposed
annexation. Senator Pettigrew found In
Han and Wife in Distress.
R?t. Dr. Bocbror of Buffalo say*: "My wife and
I wefe both troubled with distressing Catarrh, but we
b%*e enjoyed freedom from this aggravating malady
since the day we first used Dr. Agnew's Catarrhal
Powder. Its action was Instantaneous, giving the
most grateful relief within ten mlnntea after first
application." Sold by F. B. WILLIAM8, 0th and
F^sts.; EDMONDS * WILLIAMS. 3d and Pa. are.
h:m his chief storehouse of documi-ntary
ammunition to fight the hated measure. Of
course, Mr. Carter now abandons all that
fight as a dead Issue. Kv doubt he would
intelligently and cordially -advocate the best
interests of the territory. His election can
not be gained without the Independent vote,
ol which he seems to have no prospect.
Attitude of the Natives.
During the existence off the republic of
Hawaii, for six years, the iWat majority of
the natives refused to come to the polls or
to register as voters. They had two lead
ing reasons. One was a feeling of animosity
toward a government which had overthrown
the political supremacy of the Hawaiians as
exercised through a native'sovereign. This
they deeply and Inexorably resented. The
other reason was that eapti voter register
ing was required to take oath forever to re
nounce monarchy. Only a limited minority
of natives would do this. It resulted that
the elections were mainly in the hands ot
the whites. Had the natives been willing
to vote they could have carried the lower
house overwhelmingly. In the upper house
the requisite property qualification of
income would have kept the senate in the
hands of the whites, although many hun
dreds of the thus qualified natives could
?ive voted. But now the wisdom of Con
gress has consigned the legislation of Ha
waii wholly to the weak and ignorant na
tive Hawaiians.
Natives Anxloni to Vote.
It should be borne in mind that power to
vote for senators under whatever limita
tions was a great enlargement of the fran
chise to the natives. Under the previous
monarchical constitutions of 1848 and 1863
they had no vote at ail for the upper house.
The senators or "nobles" were appointed by
the king, who wisely would not trust the
people to choose them. Now that Congress
has removed the wholesome property re
striction the natives have been hastening
to register for the election. Active work
has been done to secure their votes, espe
cially by W ilcox and his associates, who j
have appealed to the people to impro%-e this
Real opportunity to put down white rule.
They have even gone so far as to promise
them that a native legislature will be able
to restore the queen to the throne. Wilcox
himself disavows that expectation. A
native vote is sure to be polled.
1 he old and affectionate friends of the Ha
waiian people, whe have long and with re
markable success labored for their eleva
i.l. Jom heathen debasement, will view
with deep regret any general effort on
their part to overthrow the hitherto friendly
and considerate influence of the foreigner.
We solicitously await their attitude to
ward the machinations of Wilcox.
Re*entment Over the Revolntlon.
In reviewing the struggle of the past sev- j
?n years for the permanence of republican j
institutions in Hawaii, a leading feature to I
be discerned is the unrelenting resentment
felt by the natives for the overthrow of
their own political control as represented
in the person of their native sovereign.
Jne cannot blame them for this, however
idverse the rule of such monarch was to
the immense and important material and
moral concerns of the country, which the
white man had created and conducted. It
is an inherent and ineradicable passion of
human nature to prize and cling to one s
own people and chiefs. As a rule all the
more primitive peoples would rather go on
under a-very base king of their own kin
nan to live under the most wise and equit
able government of white men. This antio
riJu *)art ?* t*le "white man's burden."
.u l^'r Queen was deposed most of
the Hawaiians could only feel that they
were all deposed with her, and that "Ha
waii for the Hawaiians" was no more. It
had become the possession of the Haoles.
Really that was the inevitable issue of the
gradual occupation of the land by the high
er and abler race for three-quarters of a
century- In the end they naturally dis
placed politically the lower and less com
petent. It was only the zealous and. tactful
care of the missionary fathers that so
molded and guided the earlier chiefs as 'to
secure fifty years prolongation of the mon
archy long after native Polynesian rule
lad disappeared everywhere else in the Pa
cific. The Hawaiians alone, among all the
lark and weak races of the globe, have en
joyed the inestimable honor and privilege
i i1?? n?en?(W lnto fellow-citizenship with
i civilized race.
Menace of Native Control.
Were it possible for the weaker race to re
sume control, as Wilcox is teaching them
to dream of doing. It would be fatal to
- \ er^ great material Intermit of the present
;iand and prosperous civilization of Ha
waii. let one must compassionately rec
ognize the sorrow and abasement with
which the native Hawaiian has aeen the
flories of the ancient chieftaincy disappear,
ind ail traces of its once proud exaltation
subverted. As I can remember those
tiaughty old Aliis more than sixty years
igo, how mighty and worshiped they were.
And how the people delighted to abase
:hemsel%-es and to crawl in the dust in
their presence, proud to belong to such no
de princes, the glories and achievements of
whose lofty ancestry their bards solemnly
chanted. Now all that ancient and majes
tic glory of the Hawaiians is departed,
frighted away by ocean leviathans, railway
tiains?, electric lights and mammoth mills,
with their broad miles of sugar cane fields
where formerly were arid deserts.
The grasping and resistless white man
possesses the land. Is it strange that th<?
Hawaiian resents it, although himself so
wonderfully enriched and civilized thereby'
Ordnance Officer* llelieve Tliat It Hai
Reached a Critical Statre.
Capt. Beverly W. Dunn of the ordnance
bureau, has returned from Europe, where
he has spent several months In the study of
ordnance matters generally. In that time
tie visited England, Germany, France. Bel
gium and Switzerland. He was able to ob
tain much valuable information regarding
the manufacture of ordnance, and found
the army officers of the European govern
ments very accommodating in giving their
methods and views. Much of the informa
tion he has obtained is of a confidential na
ture, but his report will be prepared with a
view of educating ordnance officers in the
I'nited States army. Captain Dunn in the
preliminary rej>ort he has made to the ord
nance bureau here says that all ordnance
officers, as well as field officers, of Euro
pean armies believe the subject of field ar
tillery is one of the most important of mod
ern warfare. They think that the develop
ment of this artillery has reached a very
critical stage, and there are about to be
great and Important changes. Events in
the Philippines, the war in South Africa
and the campaign in China, it is said, have
made this apparent.
European officers are working in the di
rection of rapid-fire guns almost exclusive
ly. They desire to secure rapid-fire guns,
and if possible preserve the present degree
of mobility, but they are inclined to sacri
fice a little In time In bringing the guns into
action in order to secure the greatest effect
iveness from quick firing.
As to coast defense and fortifications Cap
tain Dunn reports that the tendency Is to
ward longer guns, with a higher velocity
and smaller calibers. ~Tn this the European
war offices approve the>>position of the
United States. It is believ-ed that the new
type of gun will be more effective than
heavy guns of large caliber, but with
shorter range.
Captain Dunn gathered a great deal of
information coucernlng small arms, cart
ridges, powders and, In fact, that the Eu
ropean officers are well aware of the im
portance of keeping abreast of the times in
all kinds of gunnery and ammunition, and
are watching with interest everything the
United States does in this direction.

Report of the Superintendent of the
The superintendent of the Hot Springs'
reservation, Arkansas, has made an inter
esting report to the Secretary of the In
terior concerning the reservation during
the past^year, in which he says it has
reached its high-water mark of popularity.
According to the best estimates there were
80,000 visitors during the season. The in
come to the government from water and
ground rents amounted to $18,670, while the
fixed charges were only about $14,000, leav
ing a fair balance, which, in accordance
with the liberal policy of the government,
was available for additional improvements
in the reservation. The reservation In
cludes 911 acres, and in his tract there are
157 government lots still unsold. The su
perintendent says the sale of these lots,
which have been appraised at $75,000, would
go far toward providing the money neces
sary in perfecting the work of park im
provement now going forward, and he
earnestly recommends a reappraisement of
the ground and the sale of the lots during

The administration of the springs by the
government, Mr. Elsele says, has been wise
and beneficent. The amount of water dis
tributed to each bath house is scrupulously
controlled and the publio protected from
monopoly and extortion by the schedule of
charges provided by the Secretary of the

has grown to be & most Important Institu

The record of this establishment for the
past year show 9.508 applications for free
baths, of which only 216 were refused for
various reasons. The total number of sin
gle free baths given was 1$),030, at a net
cost of 1.57 cents per bath. One of the
curious features of the free bath patrons
noted In the report is that there are bath
fiends who have a morbid craving for the
treatment, much the same as the craving
for drugs and whisky among other Inebri
ates. This class is a considerable annoy
ance to the management.
