The Independent candidates for Nobles
and Representatives held another large
and enthusiastic meeting last evening in
the basement of Kaumakapili Church.
It was attended by nearlj' one thousand
Hawaiian voters. The aisles, windows,
in fact, every available place was
crammed with people.
At 7:15 o'clock Mr. J. M. Poepoe
called the meeting to order and nomi
nated the Rev. D. Keaweamahi as
chairman and chaplain, which was ap
proved. Enoka Johnson was appointed
The Chairman thanked the audience
for the honor conferred upon him, and
- after offering prayer called upon J.Kanui,
..one of the candidates for Nobles, who
spoke as follows: Fellow citizens I
thank you all for being obedient to our
call to be present. This is an awful
crisis. Those who framed the new Con
stitution did not ask a single Hawaiian
to assist in the work,and we are left out in
the cold : hence our grievances and dis
approval of the new Constitution. How
was the new Constitution framed and
passed? It was entirely against the old
Constitution. As the whites were the
ones who framed the new Constitution,
therefore it is not proper that the whites
fehould amend and improve it in order
to be meet in our eyes. No ; we are the
ones. We won't be one-sided and sel
fifth in our attempt to amend the flaws of
the new Constitution; but will do it
with one great aim, th.it i, looking on
the sufferances of aU. Tiny say "Re
form." Yes; t!i 3 v.;ry word means
drive Hawaiian! from th3siiof their
birth in order th it th3 v liteV prophecy
should be fulfilled, saying: Fifty years
hence there will be no Ilawaiians in
Hawaii. I admit that we are not rich,
but the Good Book had justly said that
it is easier for a camel to go through the
eye of a needle than for a rich man to
enter the Kingdom of Heaven. We, the
Independents, are the camels.
. At this point Mr. P. O'Sullivan arrived
and was received with loud cheers from
the entire audience, a large portion of
which rose to their feet.
Mr. S. K. Ka-ne was the next speaker.
He said: Fellow-citizens I hear voices
coming from all quarters of the Kingdom
saying "Constitution,' etc. My profes
sion is that of a lawyer, and the other
three on our ticket are all home-bred
bred lawyers. I shall ask you all, "Am
la fit candidate for a Representative?"
Answers from a thousand voices echoed
through the hall, "You are fit."J Then
I am satisfied : that is guarantee enough
of our ticket being victorious. I have
net come before you to-night to flatter
you like others, who say they love Ha-.
waii with all their heart, but mean the
reverse. We want equality, and justice
shall be maintained. He then read the
The Chairman next called upon Mr.
D. W. Pua, a candidate tor Noble, to
epeak. He compared the different mer
its of the Reform candidates for Repre
sentatives and those of the Independent
ticket, and claimed that the Independent
candidates, being all lawyers, well edu
cated, were better equipped for the posi
tion than those on the Reform ticket,
whom, he thought, were not 'able
Mr. P. O'Sullivan", who was warmly
received, was the next speaker, his re
marks being interpreted by Mr. W. C.
Achi. He said he was glad to face an
enthusiastic audience, and could proudly
say that there were not more than a
dozen among them who were not in
sympathy with him. The nine candi
dates for Nobles and the four for Repre
sentatives have been called by the Re
form party a "joint stock com
pany." Yes, it was a joint
stock company, but it was not
a company who possessed immense
wealth, but the love of ttie people with
the future prosperity of Hawaii at heart.
Article 20 of the new Constftut ion af
fected some of us. Compensation is
nothing to your candidates for Repre
sentatives, holding commissions as
notaries public ; they will resign those
moneyed positions and work to promote
the best interests of all. We are the
men who see the flaws in the new Con
stitution. A few nights ago I told you
"reform" was the watchword of the Re
form party ; and I shall now continue in
the same strain. These Reformers, in
their infancy, have thrown more than
one-half of $4,000 into the deep. If it
had not been for the Independent party
they would not have returned one cent.
Loud applause. It is very easy to re
turn one-half of what was actually taken.
There is no half-way house between
right and wrong. Therefore, either re
turn all or keep all. They claim it was
a contract. It was fraud more than a
contract. He had been advised by the
memorable "thirteen" to take the
rmoney, and to take all he could get, too.
Cheers. They could have taken $100,
000, but a second thought came to them
better return a portion in order to
pacify the irritated Hawaiians so. as to
obtain their votes. Under their banner
of "Reform" is dishonesty. Article 59
of the new Constitution deprives more
than two-thirds of you from voting for
Nobles, and you have been placed on
the same footing as criminals. Isit a
crime to be poor? One of your most
respectable and honored citizens, af
filiated to you by blood, owns immense
property and pays . taxes. Of him a
stranger, who came here two years ago,
said in the convention: "Do I know
him ? Is he in favor of reform ?" When
told that he was, this stranger said that
it was only when their bayonets glittered
in the sun that he favored reform. Yes,
we shall be glad to see their bayonets
glitter in the air once more and after
that see them sent to Mr. A. Yonng for
old iron. Prolonged applauss. The
Kingdom is yours, and not for usurpers.
As Mr. O'Sullivan descended from the
platform he was cheered again and
Hon. Antone Rosa then spoke in Ha
waiian. He said: My fellow-countrymen
I come here to-night as one of your
nominees for Representatives at the
coming election. I shall first speak on
the present situation of our country, be
cause we are better equipped for amend
ing the new Constitution to suit all than
the others. I approve of the new Con
stitution, with some exceptions. I ag. se
with it because the right of removing the
Cabinet has been taken away from the
King. My principal objection is because
it was not legally gotten up. The Legis
lature makes laws and attends to the
grievances of the people, but not with
glistening bayonets. This fiendish ac
tion teaches the peaceful Hawaiians to
do likewise. Why could not Hawaiians
those born on the soil go to the King
with baj-onets and obtain a new Consti
tution ? But I am exceedingly proud to
say that the Hawaiians have taken a
holy stand that of going to the Legisla
ture to obtain laws, and nowhere else.
We have been charged with being
thieves by that clergyman pointing to
the Rev. Mr. Oleson, a fine thing for a
minister of the gospel to say. If elected
1 shall vote to lessen the property quali
fication, if not to remove it entirely.
Cheers. The new Cabinet swore un
der oath that they would obey the Con
stitution. What did they do on the 6th
of July? Did they not go and beg the
King to sign the new Constitution? Re
member, I have no personal feelings
against the Cabinet. They paid $14,000
out of theTreasury for the Makiki claims.
That was an illegal performance. On
the 30th day of June the leader of the
Honolulu Rifles received $2,500 from the
hands of the King, and for what? In
order to save the latter's life. Cheers.
The returning of only one-half out of
$4,000 to the Treasury is an action worse
than the opium bribe. The very first day
the Reform party came into power they
went to the King and demanded money,
threatening his life if they did not gain
their object. I have thus revealed these
hidden secrets to you, so that you may
know the true inwardness of the Reform
party. The leader of the Rifles told his
men that Mr. Gibson went after him sev
eral times, offering him a certain posi
tion. That was a falsehood. He came
to me personally and begged for the posi
tion. Although Mr. Gibson favored the
proposition, no money was paid to him
then. This person, being an acute lawyer,
went to the King and got money. I do
not know whether the Rifles are aware
of these facts. The new Cabinet, when
they came into power, said that they
would settle the opium bribe ; but noth
ing has been done so far. Mr. Aki has
not yet obtained" his money. For my
self, I am satisfied with my profession,
at which I can obtain an honest liveli
hood. Had I been seeking fortune
when in office I might have possessed
$10,000 to-day. You have no idea of the
people who came to me with bribes.
But I cared more for the welfare of my
race than wealth. Do not allow your
selves to be led blindly by strangers.
A doctor said on this very platform,
while officiating as Chairman of a meet
ing, how dearly he loved Hawaiians.
He does not mean it ; all he wants Is to
be President of the Board of Health. If
Messrs. Waterhouse and Castle profess
their love for Hawaii you can believe
them ; but not so with the $4,000-man,
who does not own an inch of Hawaiian
soil. The Reform party say they wish
to preserve the independence of Hawaii.
So do we ; and more than that we will
preserve the independence of Hawaii as
a Kingdom, not as a Republic.
The Reform party has hired all the cabs
in town to convev you all to the ballot
box. They can do so. They are wealthy.
Here we are, "gold and silver . have we
none," but love for Hawaii is our great
wealth. Should you see the Rifles next
Monday parading the streets with arms,
remain quiet and show that you are
peaceful nation in times of revolution.
They have publicly declared that if they
do not carry the election they will pro
claim war. Is that preserving the in
dependence of Hawaii? Both the great
Powers of Great Britain and America
are anxious to annex us. I say we shall
not come under their rule ; but rather they
shall both look over us with protecting
As Mr. Rosa took his seat he was loud
Messrs. J. M. Poepoe and S. M. Kaau-
kai also spoke and the meeting ad
journed. It was exceedingly orderly
A Boston special of August 29th says :
Jesse Pomeroy, the child-torturer and
murderer, who is serving a life sentence
in the Charlestown State Prison, made a
second attempt to secure his freedom a
few nights ago. During the regular
round on Friday night a guard who was
leaning against a window carelessly felt
two of the iron railings give way beneath
the pressure of his hand, and a moment
later they fell clattering to the ground.
A second glance showed that the bars
upon the other side had been worked
upon, and that a few minutes later
would render them as useless as broken
ones. Hastily summoning the officials,
another inspection wras made, and the
broken and damaged bars were replaced
with perfect ones and a tour of the cells
begun. At Pomeroy's cell it was found
that two massive iron gratings on the
side nearest the window had been com
pletely cut' through, but they were so
fastened by means of gelatine that even
the heavy clashing of the door failed to
shake them. Pomeroy was immediately
removed to safer quarters and searched,
but nothing was found on his person but
two slender saws. He refused to dis
close who furnished them, where the
gelatine had been obtained, or how long
the work had been going on.
New York, August 23d. -The career
of Archibald Forbes, the famous war
correspondent, is near at end. He was
to arrive here in the fall and was to com
mence a course of lectures, under the
management of J. B. Pond, and had ar
ranged to leave Liverpool on the 20th
instant. Mr. Pond received from him a
short time ago a letter in which he stated
that he believed his health was now suf
ficiently restored to enable him to travel
in this country, and Mr. Pond notified
the many lyceums with which he had
made engagements accordingly. The
following cablegram, received by Mr.
Pond to-day, however, settles the mat
My health is wrecked. Cancel every
thing. Archibald Forbes.
It is understood that Mr. Forbes is in
the last stages of consumption, and that
he has not much longer to live.
Chicago, August 29th. A Shoshone,
Idaho, dispatch to-day says: Senator
Hearst, with Governor Stevenson and
Delegate Dubois, recently held a confer
ence here regarding the proposed enlarg
ment of the boundaries of Idaho, with
reference to Statehood, which Idaho ex
pects soon to demand. Senator Stew
art's move to annex a portion of Idaho
to Nevada has entirely collapsed. At
the conference it was suggested that the
Idaho line be extended northward
through Montana so as to take in the
counties of Beaver Head and Mis
soula. Washington, August 30th. The Pres
ident to-day appointed Professor G.
Brown Goode, Assistant Director of the
National Museum, to be Commissioner
of Fish and Fisheries, vice Professor S.
F. Baird, deceased. Judge McCue, So
licitor of the Treasurer, who was first
tendered the office, declined because of
his lack of scientific knowledge. The
office was also tendered Governor
Thompson, Acting Secretary of the
Treasurv. but he too declined for the
same reason. Professor Goode is a well
known scientist, and was associated with
Prof. Baird in many important duties of
a scientific character.
New York, August 30th. Senator
Henry W. Corbett of Oregon, now at the
Gilsey House, says the salmon catch In
the Columbia River this season will
probably reach 100,000 cases, or 4,800,
000 pounds. That is fully 20 percent
below the usual amount, and he credits
this falling off to the destruction of
young fish by the use of the trap, which
catches all sizes. Trappers do not care,
and Corbett thinks the United States
Government might as well take the rem
edy in hand, especially as the Columbia
River is the dividing line between Ore
gon and Washington Territory.
Phtladelphia, August 30th. This
morning the announcement was made
that Robert Hare, Powell & Co., and
Robt. Hare, Powell Sons & Co., great
coal mining firms, have failed, and the
street was necessarily startled. John C.
Bradley, manager of both firms, stated
that the failure was the result of the sus
pension of Chas. E. Pennock of Coaes-
ville, an extensive iron merchant, whose
paper bore the indorsement of both
firms. The liabilities he placed at
The Governments of Sweden and Den
mark are considering plan for a railway
tunnel under the Sound between Copen
hagen, in Denmark, and Malmo,in Swe
den. The tunnel, as planned, is to have
a total length of seven and one-half
miles ; that is, two miles between Ama
ger and the small islands of Saltholm
and five and one-half miles between
Saltholm and Malmo. The cost of con
struction is estimated at about $6,000,
000. Washington, August 30th. By the re
tirement of Rear Admiral Davis, an
nounced to-day, the following promotions
will be made : Commodore Braine, Rear
Admiral ; Captain George Brown, Com
modore; Commander William White
head, Captain ; Lieutenant Commander
G. A. Shetky, to be Commander ; Lieu
tenant D. F. Dilly, to be Lieutenant
Commander; J. C. Nicholson (junior
grade), to be Lieutenant Ensign; G. W.
Denfield, to be Lieutenant (junior).
Detroit, August 29th. A fire at Del
ray, eight miles from here, broke out
this morning in the Dry Kiln Anchor
Manufacturing Company, and quickly
spread to other buildings. The com
pany's loss will probably reach $250,000
or $300,000. The company's business is
making cooperage supplies, and the
property belongs to Peter Havemeyer's
Sons of New York.
The insurance is $46,000. Four hun
dred employes will be affected.
Ostend, August 24th. Fresh riots of
a more serious nature than yesterday oc
curred here to-day. After the depart
ure of the British vessel Berwick, two
other small English fishing boats, which
had just arrived, were boarded by the
Belgian fishermen, who forced their way
to the vessels' sidest despite the opposi
tion of the local authorities. The civic
guards fired three times with blank car
tridges, but, finding that no notice was
taken, the troops were compelled to fire
on the boarders with ball cartridges,
wounding several men. All the quays
and approaches to the harbor were occu
pied in force by the troops, and the
street car traffic was temporarily inter
rupted. The natives are greatly excited,
threatening to lynch the English ship
owners. Major Hen bard's Reply,
Honolulu, September 6, 1887.
