D. X. Huntsman Gives a Few
Points on Hawaiian His
tory. The political meeting at Palace
Square on Independence eve was
quite largely attended. Many for
eigners were present, and for their
benefit the speeches were interpreted
into English by Hon. J. E. Bush.
Not a small number of the audience
Hon. W. White of Lahaina was the
first speaker. He urged his hearers
to live In peace and harmony, and
ever to uphold the throne of Hawaii.
It was not possible to gather any
grains of sense from the rest of his
Messrs. Kapono and Mossman fol
lowed Hon. Mr. "White.
Captain J. Ross appeared on the
rostrum and said: I do not stand
here to ask any favor of you nor to
deceive you. I am not a stranger to
you. I have lived among you during
the past nineteen years, and have
traversed the length and breadth of
your land, more perhaps than most
of you have done. I am a foreigner,
but 1 diner ironi most ioreigners in
tms respect: my love for Hawaii is
not bounded by Honolulu alone; no,
Hawaiian territory extends further
than Honolulu. To-day is the anni
versary of the restoration of your flag,
not independence day. iou never
lost your independence, so you had
none to gain. The average foreigner
forgets that this is your land and not
his. He is here by your sunerance.
I have been asked why I affiliate
with the mechanics and with Mr.
Bush. I replied that is my privilege
as a free man, and not a slave to the
wealthy class. You perhaps forget
that I first arrived here wearing the
uniform of the Republic of America,
a republic which for four years and a
halt fouerht to give men and the
world liberty. I have been through
out the civilized and uncivilized
world, but Honolulu is the only place
where to be poor is sin, and to be dls
honest. In other countries it is an
honor to be honest and not dishonor
to be poor. I wish to tell you that
your liberty is being plotted against
by men under the garb of religion.
In a recent number of the Review of
Reviews, a magazine published in
.London, there appeared an article
stating that you are ready to forfeit
your libertVi and that four-fifths of
the sugar industry of the kingdom is
owned by Americans. A Christian
gentleman is the author of this, and
be lies when lie said so. Tins is only
a financial bait, as it were, to catch
Uncle Sam's purse, and the bait on
the hook is ruuloa. The supposition
is that ho was paid for writing that
article. I have been reproached for
siding with Mr. Bush, because they
say, Mr. Bush is too smart and yet
he is poor.
Hon. Jos. Nawahi opened his re
marks by making a wholesale accusa
tion against the educated class of Ha
waiians, because he believes that they
are much to blame for the present
political crisis among Hawaiians. He
said: The educated Hawaiians are the
source of all your troubles. They seek
a higher education, but they make
use of it by ensnaring your votes.
They think only of their welfare, and
leave the masses to hew their paths
for themselves. It is mainly this
utterly selfish policy of Hawaiians
that has brought us to our present
unpleasant situation. We have never
reaped the benefits of their education.
The Hawaiians are killing them
selves. I would rather it had been
the work of foreigners. It were better
that such renegade Hawaiians had
been wiped out of existence. Their
carcasses are proper meat for the
Mr. Bush next introduced Mr. D.
L. Huntsman, the following being a
synopsis of his remarks: I do not
come here to flatter you. I do not
have a high opinion of the masses in
Hawaii. I have come to instruct you
of your powers. I see many things in
this country that are disgraceful. I
see many things that would not be if
the people were free and intelligent.
I wish to call attention to things in
America which you need here. I call
your attention to what America has
done for you and is willing to do for
this country. Kamehameha I. was
no doubt a great warrior, but his
giving the country to England was a
great mistake. He taught men to
kill; that was a sin. It is better for
people to live together in peace than
for the poor to fight against each
other. The only thing Great Britain
would do is to absorb you as she had
done to many small countries. It is
her boast that the sun never sets, on
British soil. It was an error for
Kamehameha to give your country
to England. You would have per
haps thought that it was the
generosity and magnanimity of Great
Britain and France to restore inde
pendence to you. No! It was Uncle
Sam that rose and said to them: You
must keep your hands off those peo
ple. It was the United States that
gave Hawaii her freedom. She is
doing the same thing to small South
American republics. If it were not
for our country other powers would
come and absorb them. The United
States wa3 the first to throw away
monarchy and make the people rule
themselves. Mr. Huntsman then
said that the tendency of having a
Hawaiian princess educated in Eng
land is to imbue her with a British
spirit, and, as a consequence, it will
make her an English Queen in re
ality. It was due to the faults of
your chiefs and kings that you are a
mere handful to-day. The first great
mistake t the kings made was the
throwing away of all their gods and
believing the missionaries. The last
mistake made was that made by King
Kalakaua. He signed the treaty
which filled the country with Chi
nese. The natives thereby were made
poorer and the foreigners enriched.
You'll be lost if you put your trust in
After an address by R. W. Wilcox,
the meeting adjourned.
Tried to Hug the Horse.
Sunday morning a driver of a
Pantheon hack had occasion to stop
at a house in Kukni lane and asked
a stranger of West Indian descent to
hold his horse. The stranger in
stead of holding the bit put his arms
around the horse's neck and fright
ened the animal. The horse started
to ran away, and in doing so knocked
the man down, a wheel passing over
one of his legs, causing a fracture.
'He was taken to the Hospital, and
will have to remain there for some
time. , '

Some time last week an aged native
named Kanui was riding through the'
streets of Wailuku in a state of intoxi
cation. He suddenlv fell from his
horse, and when the bystanders pick
ed him up they found that he was
dead, heart disease being the probable
On the 23d inst., Henry Long, a
tax police officer, was acquitted of the
charge of highway robbery of a
Chinaman by Judge Richardson of
the Wailuku Court. The story of the
Chinaman which caused the arrest is
something as follows: On the night of
the 17th instant, between 8 and 9
o'clock, he was held up in the sand
hills between Wailuku and Kahului
by aforesaid officer and his tax receipt
demanded. He replied to the demand
that the paper was at his house, and
if the officer would accompany him
he would produce it. This reply did
not satisfy Mr. Long, who proceeded
to search him not sparing even the
Celestial's hair from a thorough over
hauling. Meanwhile the Mongolian
held his purse in his hand; after
searching in vain, the officer perceiv
ing the money bag took it and from it
abstracted a ten dollar gold piece
This evidence unsupported was deem
ed insufficient to procure conviction.
On the 25th inst., the Tax Appeal
Board met in Wailuku, and the deci
sion in its own case was a compro

Board, composed of Messrs. A. Hock

"Kalakaua Day" and Thanksgiv

without even 'a hint of celebration;
now the Hawaiian Independence

same style, though there is some re

the Kula regions.
