THRUM Fort street WM. STKAHLMAWN Hawaiian Hotel Five Cents per Copy. FRIDAY July 1st. The Hawaiian Trouble. From San Francisco Chronicle, June 18th. The whole difficulty in the Island King dom, in spite of exaggerated reports and accounts, may be aptly summarized as a tempest in a teapot. There is about .as much probability of turning the Kingdom into a republic as there would have been in the Grand Duchy of Gerolstein. As a matter of fact, there is nobody there who wants a republic. The natives do not, for all their history and traditions center round a monarchy, and an absolute one at that, and they have about as much idea of the genius of republican institutions as a Piute Indian has of Hebrew. The foreign ers do not want a republic, tor under such a form of government their stealings and pickings would necessarily be less end their chances to feather their neats greatly diminished. The King surely has not turned Republican. He is not ambitious of joining Daudet's kings in exile. . His salary of $25,000 a year, even with the cares of state oppressing him, and anxiety as to where he can make the next loan keeping him awake at nights, is better than skirmishing around in Paris or Berlin, leading a precarious existence on the relics of his former greatness. The trouble is simply a variation on the very old and yet ever new squabble b9 tween the ins and the outs. One clique h? obtained possession of all the fat of fi "ps ad big salaries, and all the rest of tue cliques make common cause against thet i. If there were offices and salaries tuuui to go around, or if a system of ro tatiw in office could be arranged, with i -.t '. : 'ta of periodical revolution sufflcient- -1- . t, there would be no talk of change form of government. f. -v . ies, there might be an obstacle in try ay of deposing the King and upset iii.v f.e Government which has not been ihoupKtof. The convention between the laws'ian Kingdom and Great Britain and Ft&t :e might turn out. to be broad enough tu r-jver just such a case as this. It is cer tain tLat if any advantage were sought by fitte" English, French or Americans, by r ii of which any existing treaty rights . ; . be' imperiled, the other parties to ' ipartite convention would at oncef"1 r and enforce their protest in a man licit would be detrimental to the :.., 1 prosperity of the new Govern M a um up, then, inasmuch as nobody in Uf : ndwich Islands can have anything to gktin by subverting the Government or biitii ng its form, and inasmuch as it wo-' i be or might be. a very dangerous jxj r. merit for all concerned, the chances of 1 ng a republic arise from the blue :. L . of the Pacific are not very brilliant, vi-i I such rumors may be safely set a At the account" of those who are out v? slice and are jealous and -envious of iu"o who are more fortunate. A turn of tit. " heel may put theee malcontents into 't i )sitions, and then none will be so yai LtS they, and none so quick to scout i;.'!aof Hawaii being anything but a 'nfrdom. Qnenit Hospital.

A Lre Oatlierlnic at Uie RlUes Arm oryA New Const itutioit Oe ujaiided Full Report of tbe Iroeetllusi. Pursuant to a poster which had been placarded around town, a public meet ing was held yesterday afternoon at the Honolulu Rifles Armory for the pur pose, as it was announced, of taking "into consideration the present nial-administra-tion of public affairs, and to consider means of redress.'' A Inrjre rrn wd of all nationalties nearly filled the building, but comparatively sneaking there were v ery few Hawaiians, A platform had been. erected on the Bere-j tanla side of the buslding, and it was draped with Hawaiian, American, British and Portuguese flags. Below the platform was- a table, which was occupied by representatives .of the P. C. Advertiser, "Bulletin," "Daily Herald," "Gazette," "Elele," "Pae Aina," "Kuo koa" and "Chinese News." The -Honolulu Rifles were drawn up in line onTJeretanUi street, facing the front entrance of the building. Each private carried seventy rounds of ammunition and the officers were armed with revolvers. Thev were under orders in case of any dis turbance. The three companies turned out strong and presented a very creditable ap pearance. By 1 o'clock most of the business houses had closed, and Marshal Kaulukou gave orders for all the saloons to close up, which was done. Among those present in the hall were noticed Hons. C. R.

Jones as Chairman, and the nomination was unanimously accepted. The Chairman, who was received with cheers, said: Fellow-citizens, I cordially thank you for this compliment of making me the mouthpiece of this the largest and perhaps the most important meeting ever held on these Islands. (Applause). We are assembled here in a constitutional manner for the purpose of addressing a communication to the King, asking for good government something which we believe we have not had, and which we earnestly desire. (Applause). We are assembled here as fellow-citizens, compris ing English, American, Hawaiian, Chi nese, German and other nationalities, and can afford to conduct ourselves in a dig nified manner. We have a dignified peti tion and set of resolutions, and it behoves us to do what we have to do in a firm and determined manner, as we are firm and de termined in what we ask. (Applause). We have prepared a set of resolutions, which you.will recognize the necessity of doing beforehand, and the first thing will be to read those resolutions. They will be. presented to the meeting by L. A. Thurs ton, after which a communication Jwhich has been received from His Maiestv the King will be read. We shall then proceed by asking several gentlemen to make short speeches. This is Such a large meeting and in such a warm place, and we are so warmed up with the subject (applause) that we must make it short, sharp and de cisive, (applause) no speaker taking more than five minutes, or if shorter all the bet ter. (Dissentient voices). I will now ask your attention to the .resolutions, which will be presented by Mr. Thurston. (Ap plause. Mr. Thurston said that he did not ex pect to be there in uniform, but he had been ordered to be there in uniform, and he believed in' obeying orders. He then read as follows:,. - " We, the citizens, residents and taxpayers of Honolulu, acting, as we firmly believe. in sympathy with and in beb"' cf all rkbt miriHW) ;.. . fc4Jlft ,nd tjac vers of t - : &s o-K-m. i:3 bri.'Ss asexubled in : 'mass meeting in the city Of Honolulu, on the 30th day of June, 1S87, do resolve as follows : 1. That the administration oi the Ha-Tx-Mon Government has ceased, through corruption and incompetence adequately. to nerform tbe functions and afford the protection to personal and property J-ights, for which all governments exist. 2. That while some of the evils of which we complain cannot be at once adequately redressed and their recurrence prevented, and many others are incurable except by radical changes in the present constitu tion, involving protracted delays; yet there are some evils which we feel must be rem edied at once before a permanent reform movement can be inaugurated with any reasonable prospect of success. 3. Holding these views, we request of the King: , , First That he shall at once andlmcon ditionally dismiss his present Cabinet from office, and we ask that he shall call one of these persons, viz.: William L. Green, Henry Waterhouse, Godfrey Brown or Mark P. Robinson, to assist him in se lecting a new Cabinet, which shall be com mitted to the policy of securing a new constitution. Second That Walter M. Gibson shall be at once dismissed trom eicn ana every office held by. him under the Government. Third In order so far as possible to re move the stain now resting on the throne, we request of the King that he shall cause to be made immediate restitution of the sum, to wit, seventy-one thousand dollars, ($71,000), recently obtained by him in vio lation of law and of his oath of office, un der promise jthat the persons from whom the same wa.s obtained should receive the license to sell opium, a? provided by statute of the year 1886. 4. Whereas, one Junius Kaae was im plicated in the obtaining of said seventy one thousand dollars ($71,000) and has since been and still is retained in office as Registrar of Conveyances, weequest as a safe-guard to the property interests of the country that said Kaac be at once dis missed from said office, and that the records of our land titles be placed in the hands of one in whose integrity the people can safely confide. 5. That we request a specific pledge frotfl the King. (1) . That he will not, in the future, in terfere either directly or indirectly with the election of representatives. (2) . That he will not interfere with or at tempt to unduly influence legislation or legislators. Resolved, that . the committee of thir teen TO WAIT ON THE KING, Paul Isenberg, W. W. Hall, J. A. Kennedy, W. H. Rice, Captain J. A. King, E. B. Thomas, H. O. Reed, John Vivas, W. P. A. Brewer, W. B. Oleson, Cecil Brown, Captain John Ross, J. -B. Atherton, Is hereby appointed to present the fore- going resolutions and requests to the King, and said committee is hereby instructed to request of the King a personal answer to the same be returned within twenty-four hours of the time when the same are pre sented; and to further inform the King that his neglect to so answer the same within said time will be construed as a re fusal of the said requests. Resolved, That said committee, in case of the King's refusal to grant said requests, or in case of his neglect to reply to the same, is authorized to call another mass meeting at this place on SaturdayJuly 2d, at 2 p. ni., to turther consider the sit uation. Hon. C. R. Bishop then read the follow ing letter, which he had received from His Ma, estj' the King about 1 o'clock that day: Honolulu, June 30, 1887. Hon. C. R. Bishop, Member of the House of Nobles, Privy Councilor of State, etc. My Deat Sir: Reposing especial confi dence in your Ioj'alty and sound judgment as a councilor, and knowing your regard for our people, we are moved to call upon you in the present conrtition of alfairs in cur Government, to say that we have called upon the Hon. W. L. Green to form a Cabinet and a Ministry 'which he may select and which will be acceptable to the respectable and responsible majority of our people will be welcome to us, and any guarantees which may be reasonably re quired of U3 under the Constitution fend laws of our Kingdom will be at once con ceded to such administration. Your Friend, Kalakaua. As Mr. Bishop's voice was inaudible in remote portions of the building, the letter was reread by the Chairman in a louder tone. Mr. W. A. Kinney then read the reso lutions in the Hawaiian language. The Chairman intimated that as there were so many speakers it would be utterly impossible to have all the speeches inter preted. The first speaker called upon was Hon. W. L. Green, who was greeted with loud cheers. His remarks, which were nearly inaudible, were to the effect that events had been so uncertain during the last few days that it had been impossible to prepare any address, not knowing up to the last moment what course they might take, and the letter from the King had turned their whole course. The meeting had assembled to express themselves as to the past and in regard to the future, and he urged upon the speakers to keep their language firm and decisive. He remem bered a meeting held some three years ago he thought at the Lyceum. It was a large meeting, though not so large as this, and its object was to protest against the malad ministration of the Gibson Cabinet. He 'was not there, not being well, but sent a letter, in which he expressed himself in strong language. He need not go iuto the details that could be done better by others ; but they were met again to-day because from that day to this that same administration had been getting worse and worse until at last Applause. Let their attitude now be one which will teach Hi3 Majesty that he must turn over a new leaf, and see that this country is governed as a constitutional monarchy. He thought the King's letter precluded his saying any thing further cn this point. If he should be called upon to bead a Ministry it should be one pi edged to the ctHTrnon good, and which would, carry out the rtiolutiong passed thvira that day. 1 Mr. W. A. Kinney wu.i nextauea upon to speak in Hawaiian. Befoffe doing so he stated in English that he hajl been born here, and if it pleased God he would die here, and he hoped to die under the Ha waiian flag. He had no desire to see the independence of this couiatry gone, but be wanted it to have a good name, which it had not to-day, and that could only be at tained by the removal of the Gibson ad ministration. Applause. He Kad often quoted a remark of Lord Chatham's, which would bear repeating "It is time the throne was addres.:fl in the language of truth" and the t; cth was that those who were engaged in this movement meant to have a reconstruction of the Government. But it was the height of folly to suppose that they were going to send four men in as Ministers, and that these men would be able to do all that was required. Mr. E. M.Walsh: We will support them. He had every confidence in Mr. Walsh, but it would take a new constitution. That was what was needed, and that wa3 what would come, and if he thought that they were going to get anything less he would not be there. The miserable rag of a con stitution we had did not afford adequate representation nor impose proper restric tions upon the power of the" throne. He believed it was written on the hearts of those before him, "A new consti tution, and that speedily." It was the height of folly to suppose that commercial men and others in the com munity could stand and hold these men in their places. We had tried this kind of thing for the last six j-ears.' ilf the King wanted his own rights and those of seventy thousand men as well he made a mistake. If this had been tbe case in the past there was now a revolution of thought, and a revolution of thought was always followed by a revolution of arms unless redress were given. He had placed tha flag (the Ha waiian) upon the table because he wanted all that was done to be based upon that flag, but he wanted its record to be cleansed by a new constitution, and then he would stake upon that flag his life and ever3r cent he had, and even his sacred honor. Ap plause. "I say," he continued, "that these men who have begun this movement cannot draw back now if they would. If the men did not carry it on the women would. inci any man want to sum up mentally all that men, women and little children had suffered through disease alone he could not do so women who hnd sent their little ones away from , the country, compelled to live1 here in exile, because we were not men enough to put things right No man could stop the movement now, The vessel had started, and the only thing to be done now was to jump to the wheel and push her forward. Mr. Kinney then spoke in Hawaiian. Hon. S. B. Dole, who was cheered as he ascended the platform, called attention to two thoughts which were suggested by the constitution. One was that the King con ducts his Government for the common good, and the other was like unto it all men have the right to assemble and con suit together for the common good. They would not be assembled there that day if the King had conducted his government for the common good. They were met as reasonable citizens who wished to see the execution of the laws; but they meant business and intended to see their reasonable and lawful wishes carried out. That was a meeting. as he understood, to give His Majesty the King one more chance to fall into line and march with political reform. He could take it if he liked, but whether he did or not the political movement would go on. (Ap plause). He (Mr. Dole) did not. say that the King deserved these privileges. He was there to talk about the King, not his Ministers, because he held him resnonsi ble for the condition of affairs. He had now one more chance to fall into line nd work this reform with them. With the facts of the case all were familiar; they covered the whole grounds of the adminis tration. There had been an unwarrant able interference on the part of the King with his Ministers and his sacred oath he had sold to the highest bidder. They had not assembled in hostility to any man, but they requested the King to put himself in the line of cleanness of Gov ernment and equal rights of all men. By these resolutions they took the first step. They asked him . to return this money, which all believed he had accepted in a manner which sta4ned the record of the throne; not because they respected or cared for the interests of those parties who have lost it, but because of the official records of the throne as a guarantee that in the future the throne should be held sacred from that kind of influence. He did not know the future of this movement, but was satisfied they were there on reasonable grounds. The public moneys belonging to the people had been thrown aside and spent in every possible way. This move ment had gone forward to such an extent that not to sympathize with it was ah ost Ltreason. Applause. So he should sup port these resolutions, and ask all to do "c unanimously. The Chairman said he would next call upon one whose business it was to go i no the bowels of the earth and bring out re freshing streams. Mr. J . A. McCandless said he supported these resolutions, and in doing so he be lieved that he represented some fifteen hundred people. He was ready to support them with the last drop of his blood. He believed that there was a unanimity which had never before been attained. Fifteen hundred persons had been disfranchised for no other reason than that they were white men, and they were not going to have this much longer, f hey had a right to have their franchises granted uncon ditionally. A voice; We'll take them.. He was afraid there were some amorrg them who were weak-kneed. One man had got his gun and taken it home and left a note upon the table with the words; "Good-bye; shall be out of town till next Sunday." That showed that there were some who wanted bracing up. There were men among them the grand-children of those" who had fought at Waterloo and made it what it was; of the noble six hun dred at Balaklava. They had among them some of the heroes of Appotomax, and also of the Franco-German war. These were the kind ot men this community was made up of. Abraham Lincoln had re marked on the eve of the late war, "It may be necessary to set the foot down hard." And a great newspaper corre spondent who was present said that he knew then for the first time that the great North ws ready, and, concluded the speaker, from what I sea hr to-day I know that we are ready. Applause. " Hon. C. R. Bishop was the next speaker. He said it was unquestionably an important meeting he thought the most important ever held here. He saw before him bank ers, merchants, mechanics and men of all classes. They had not come as a matter of amusement, but because they felt that the times and the circumstances of affairs here called for action and the expression of an honestnd decided opinion. It behoved them to useWords of truth and soberness, without threats. They did not need to threaten. The fact that so many peace able, sensible, substantial men had taken an interest in the matter was sufficient without threats. (Applause). He had lived here a good many years since '46. He came here during the . reign ot Kame hameha III., and had lived under five Kings, who had ruled under substantially the same Constitution as we had now. In former days it was thought that we had a liberal Constitution because tffose Kings did not infringe the rights of their subjects. But we had found out within the last few years that our Constitution is defective, giving too much power to the Sovereign. It was not altogether due "to bad advice, for he believed that the King was largely responsible for the abuse of the rights of the people ; but he was glad to believe from the note received from the King that he was prepared to turn over a new leaf. He did not think they required a new Con stitution. Some important amendments to the one we had would suffice, and he believed we should get them. People here were very slow to move in political matters, but when they did move there had got to be a substantial reform. He came to that meeting as a Hawaiian, and he wanted such reform as would be good for the native and the foreigner. He did not represent a class or a clique, but he came to ask for that which is right and just for all. J Mr. Henry Waterhouse spoke in Ha waiian. His Hawaiian friends had heard of the inefficiency of the constitution and the bad management of affairs of Govern ment. Was it right? No. Anew consti tution was what they wanted to remedy the present evils. Hawaiians had no voice in the affairs and management of the Gov ernment. No, none at all. That wa.s the reason of these resolutions. In the future you will laud us, the sons of the land. We have seen the bad and the mismanage ment. Let us be firm though the heavens fall. Mr. R. Jay Greene said he was not aware he had to speak, or he should have put on better clothes,. He had come right from his work, because the boys had left him, and he followed them. He expected to keep right along following the boys. The Chairman said that speech was short, sharp and decisive. . Hon. L. A. Thurston said they had been waiting a long time for this day, and at last it had come. All classes were there English, Germans, Americans but he wished to represent the Hawaiians. He had lived in the country since he was a foot high. His-ancestors had come there in the days of Karr.ehanieha I, and had lived and died here. And Hawaii was good enough for hira if cleaned up and made honest. The majority of Hawaiians were imposed upon and had no leaders. A great many people living here were not brought into intimate communication with the natives. He had spent six weeks traveling through Molokai, where the com munity was essentially native, and he could say that the natives there were with the obj3Cts of this meeting as one man. It might be thought by some that that let ter from the King rendered these resolu tions unnecessary. He did not think so. History repeated itself in Hawaii Nei as elsewhere. During tbe session of the Legislature of '84 the King sent a letter to the Assembly enjoining economy, beginning with his own privy purse. There was a torchlight procession and a great speech was presented to him. But he went back on his word, and the appropriation was bigger than ever before. He did the same in r86, but it wouldn't wash then. They remembered the Moreno trouble. There was dissatisfaction with the Cabinet and a meeting was held similar to this, though not as large. The King intimated that it would be all right; there would be a new Ministry. Three cheers were eiven for the I -ing, and there it ended. He did not tmnl that any three cheer; would be pro posed this time. Cries 61 "No." And where had it landed us 1 Where we were to-day. Many had had their business almost entirely ruined by the mal-adminis-tration. And were they going to take him at his word again without anything more? Cries of "No." They meant "No." Even a written guarantee was not sufficient. They must have a radical change in the constitution. How was it to be secured? "We want it now. Some said it would be unconstitutional unless brought about by the Legislature. Now, the constitution was a contract between us representing the people, and the King representing the throue. A contract could always be J cb:--ged with the consent of both parties. The constitution was a self-imposed mat ter. It represented the boundaries put upon the power of the King and the rights of the pepple. If both agreed to change it there could be no violation ot rights. If this opportunity were allowed to pass and they were simply going to take a change of Ministry, the new Ministry might be put out next month. The only way was to change the constitution now. Therefore let thm send back a. Ministry committed to the policy of giving us a new constitu tion. This was the first, last and only re quest, and let it be insisted upon to the last moment-l Hon. Paul Isenberg said that on many points he agreed to these resolutions, but as far as the new constitution was con cerned he was somewhat doubtful. Let it be done legally. Hisses. The subject had been broached the previous day of his entering a new Ministry. If so, he would liot be a party to pushing a new constitu tion through in a hurry. It would not be legal unless carried by the Legislature. Dr. C. T. Rodgers: What Assembly gave us our present constitution? We could have an extra session to pass the constitu tion. Hisses and applause. He hoped all would be peaceful and not hasty. A voice: We have been waiting six years. Ii so, we could very well wait another. Great uproar and cries of "No, no." Dr. Emerson: "We won't wait another year." A voice: "We mean to have it now." Cries of "Sit down." Mr. . Isenberg resumed his seat' amid great sensation. The Chairman Baid there should be 9 free expression of opinion. Mr. H. 8. Swinton said he was not go Continued on 21 page. COME AND m iTTl Popular M. ; Hinery House, 1G4 Pci. ot., 1ST. S.
