DAILY PACIFIC COMMERCIAL, ADVERTISER, MARCH 17, 1893.
Ou the eighth day of March it was
some H.'Ople say, .
That fit. I'atriekat midnight he nrst
snw the !:'. . . ...
While others afflrm it was te ninth
he was horn,
It was all a mistake Let ween nud-
niuht atil morn, . .
Tor mistakes may occur in their
hurry ami shock,
And some blamed the hahy
And some blamed the clock,
Till with their cross questions sure no
one could know
Whether the child was too fast or the
clock was too slow.
For the eighth some would live and
for the ninth some would die,
And who wouldn't say right sure
they'd blacken his eye.
At last boih the faction so positive
That each kept a birthday, so Pat
then had two,
Till Father Mulcahy who showed
fSaid nobody could have two birth
days but twins.
Kays he, boys don't be fighting for
eight or for nine,
Don't always be dividing but some
Combine eight with nine seventeen is
Let that be his birthday, amen, says
They all got blind drunk which com
pleted their bliss,
And they kept up the practice from
that day to this.
A SONG OF HAWAII.
Hawaii ! island far away,
On the Pacific tide,
"Where ships like white-winged sea
But may not long abide
What means the signal that we see,
From the fair island on the lee ?
To all the islands of the group
Hawaii gives the name,
The chief and grandest of the troop,
It holds aloft its flame
The burning mountain in the sky,
The fiery banner Hung on high.
() ! Mauna Loa, mountain grand,
And Kilauea near,
Where waves of lire close by the
From unknown depths appear
Till the wild natives heard with dread
Their angry gods in thunder tread.
Ah ! 'tis a record sad we read,
A dying nation there,
Since on their shore they heard the
Of foreign sailors near
The. Malay race seems dying fast,
Like the wild sea birds hurrying past.
Hut things so black and dread to tell
Are dyiug with the race,
As mountain fires, their dreaded hell,
Seem dying out apace
While for the remnant on the shore
Changes have brought the open door.
Blest star of promise dawning near,
When news of Him who died
For all the sheep, made life less drear
By the Pacific tide
Aud the new life and light that came
Shone brighter than the Loa's flame.
'Twas Britain's sailor who the shore
Hailed first upon the wave
All honor to the race who bore
Their flag so true and brave
The Anglo-Saxon whom we boast
Our fathers dear upon this coast.
The Sandwich Islands then the name
That Cook, the sailor, gave,
When, on the voyage, known to fame,
He found by them his grave
And called them Sandwich for the
Britain's proud admiral in the van.
The tempting morsel now they bring,
The Hawaiians, to this land
The sandwich at our feet they fling.
And bid us take in hand
What will it be ! a wholesome meal,
Or lava flame that we may feel.
I may not in my song decide
The question now at stake,
The right on yon Pacific tide
The islands fair to take
But to our statesmen, wise and true,
We leave yon signal on the blue.
But still our song must freely flow
About the islands fair,
Where summer breezes sweetly blow,
And springtime rules the air
Where palm trees wave upon the
To greet the ships when half way o'er.
So near the Golden Gate they lie,
Those islands in the west,
The Stars and Stripes seem floating
As if for them the best
And brighter may that banner seem
For the red mountain's llery gleam.
Protect, we must we may annex!"
Let Princeton now decide
The questious that the powers vex,
Who sail upon the tide
Our wise men now in counsel here
May tell to-night which way to steer.
One ray of Paradise had strayed
Ages ago beside
Their altars, where all wrath was
Each trembling wretch to hide
Like Israel's cities where of old
No harm the fugitive could hold.
Bright shadows both that told of One
Some day on earth to come,
To give the weary 'neath the sun
The peace and rest of home
And one dear refuge found at last,
Where storm and lire and death are
Annexation will be neither help
ed nor hindered by the Neumann
mission to Washington. The only
showing that can be made by the
Queen's envoys is that she has
been deposed, and that, not by
Americans but by the people of
Hawaii, which absolves the United
States from all responsibility for
the affair. The landing of the
marines from the Boston occurred
after the coup d'etat and was in
response to a demand from those
actually in possession of the Gov
ernment and exercising its func
tions, and even then the landing
was made only in the interests of
peace and good order.
Queen Liliuokalani cannot have
sent an embassy to Washington
with a crown for sale, for she has
none to offer, and it is more than
likely that all she expects is to
save something from the wreck in
the way of a pension or annuity
for herself from the United States
Government S. F. Chronicle.

A League Which ISeUeve Wimn
AVouliI Miikr ti 31 emlier.
The first publi.; meeting i.f the
newly organized Hawaiian Patriotic
League was held at the Arion Hall
last night. There were nearly two
hundred people present. Capt. J.
Boss was the only white man among
the crowd. The meeting was very
orderly, and far from being an enthu
astic one. Kahookano, executive
member of the Civil Rights League
was among the audience, but did not
Vice President Kaunamano pre
sided. The minutes of the committee
meetings were read by J. K. Kaulia,
Mr. Kaunamano made a few ex
planatory remarks concerning the ob
ject of the meeting. It was to bring
together Hawaiians to discuss the
situation without resorting to arms.
The speaker declared that the real
object of the League was to perpe
tuate the independence of the coun
try, whether under a monarchy or a
republic. A branch organization has
already been established at Kohala.
The instructions to the branch asso
ciations were to fill the hearts of the
people with patriotism.
W. L. Holokahiki: Friends in grief,
t greet you. God intends man to he
an independent creature. The first
man was independent. He was the
head of the family. Hawaii has been
an independent kingdom from time
immemorial; it was never intended
to be a tributary of any other power.
Hawaii had a Constitution which
made us an independent nation. God
has given us intelligence with which
we should choose between right and
wrong. Is there a Judas here, who
would not cherish our independence ?
Kind people, shun the tempter! If
you fall in the tempter's snares, then
we perish. Nothing can change pure
patriotism. Pecuniary considerations
could not buy love of country. Friends,
we must be a unit in our aim. This
city is filled with political associa
tions, therefore union is needed. Noth
ing is Impossible if we work together.
If we allow our thoughts to be moved
by every new comer we can not ac
11. S. Swinton wanted to reserve his
opinions for a much larger audience.
His heart was burning with patriot
ism. The Hawaiians had been ac
cused of being revolutionary. I have
traveled extensively, and nowhere
could I find a more peaceful and law
abiding people. Which of you would
not like to live under a monarchy? I
answer you, there is no place like Ha
waii. This is a critical moment and
we do not know where we are to be
landed. But there is one thing certain,
Hawaiians do not want annexation.
(Applause.) There are some Hawai
ians who are annexationists, not be
cause they are really and sincerely
in favor of it, but because of their
surroundings and influences. Such
Hawaiians ought to emigrate to
America. The way to America is
clear and easy, aud perhaps they
might find a hearty welcome in
America. I have never been a syco
phant royalist, but when our inde
pendence is at stake, I feel it a duty
to publicly announce my inclinations.
I am prepared to speak before thous
ands on this subject.
L. W. P. Kanealii Our life is at
Washington. We know nothing else
beyond what the papers say, whether
true or false. There are three leagues
now in the field: The Hawaiian Civil
Rights League, Hawaiian . Patriotic
League, and the Annexation League,
which is being formed. To which of
these three are we t trust our inde
pendence. The Civil Rights League is
in reality an annexation league. They
want us to be annexed to the State of
California. The league now being
formed goes a step further; they favor
complete annexation. The Patriotic
League alone has for its object the
continuation of our independence. We
alone have the real love of country,
aud love of the people at heart. We
are downtrodden to-day, aud we dare
not raise our voice. The Patriotic
League consists of three different
associations Hui Kalaiania, Liberal
League, and Native Sons of Hawaii.
Our independence is paramount to all
other political considerations, and,
therefore, we set apart our political
differences. That proves our strength
to-day. We have a brave man as our
President, Joseph Nawahi, a man
who could not be bought for a million
The constitution of the League was
Rev. S. Kaili (of Waipio, Hawaii):
I have been taught patriotism from
my boyhood, and my presence among
you to night is owing to the fact that
this is a patriotic meeting. I lost my
father and mother years ago. I have
nothing else to love but my country.
J. W. Bipikane: I attend nothing
else but patriotic meetings. I was in
vited by J no. Colburn to attend his
meetings, but I declined because Iliad
not lost my civil rights, therefore,
such a league is unnecessary. I do not
want anybody to come to me aud say
"we are annexed." I'll send him away
immediately. I love my country
more than anything else in this world.
Wives and mothers die away, but our
country lives to eternity. My love is
now concentrated on my country; life
itself is nothing in comparison to it.
Rev. Kalana entertained the audi
ence with a few remarks on patriot
ism, and ended by quoting:
"Kim aina hanau e,
Nou wau e."
("My county, 'tis of thee.' )
Moses Mahelona said that patriotism
was like lightning burning in his
heart. He said that the Queen had
been deposed and a Provisional was
carrying on an oligarchic govern
ment. The Provisional Government
want to annex us to America. Ho
any of you want to see the American
eagle floating over our beloved
country? Doy" waat to be ma
slaves hereafter? You will all answer
in unison, "No!"
The chairman announced that, as
the women were also patriots, and
perhaps their love for their country
was deeper than that of many men. a
meeting for their benefit would be
called "by the secretary hereafter.
They were with us in this work.
Meetings will be held in the various
districts by the following sub-chairmen
F. S. Keiki, District 1.
(.'. Keawe, District 2.
J. K. Prendergast, District 3.
A. K. Palekalulu and C Mali',
The meeting closed at 0:15 P.M.
Another meeting will be held at the
a:ne place next Monday evening.
MVAJ TO FREEDOM.
A Japanese Murderer Finds Shel
ter on a Warship.
The third escape from jail within
a short period of time was made
yesterday, when a Japanese mur
derer took to the water and after a
good swim reached and boarded
the Japanese cruiser Xaniwa, in the
harbor, and there he now remains,
secure from molestation as far as
this Government is concerned. The
prisoner's name is Imada Yukusa
chi. He was found guilty of mur
der in the second degree, for killing
a countryman with a hatchet. The
killing was done on Maui. He was
given twenty-one years for his
crime and was committed to the
reef about the middle of last De
cember. The Japanese was among a num
ber of prisoners yesterday who were
employed about the Quarantine
Station. They were under guard,
but the prisoner did not seem to
have much trouble in escaping.
He took a good start, and after run
ning the length of the narrow
bridge connecting with the Quaran
tine Station, he jumped overboard,
swam to the Naniwa and was taken
on board. Shortly after, the prison
overseer came alongside, but he
was not allowed on board. When
the matter was brought to the at
tention of the police authorities a
request was made to the Japanese
Consul to surrender the man, but
that official declined to do so.
It is understood that his reason
for refusing the request of the Gov
ernment is that there is no extra
dition treaty existing between Jap
an and this country, and as a war
vessel is considered territory of
the country which it represents it
looks as though the murderer will
escape serving the remainder of
his sentence unless the Consul
should change his mind and sur
render him to the authorities.
The other Japanese prisoners on
the reef will be kept locked up
hereafter to prevent them from en
joying hospitality on board of the
Naniva. There is something radi
cally wrong in the system of guard
ing prisoners, as this escape is the
third one during the past six
months. The other two who took
French leave were white men tinder
sentence for manslaughter. They
escaped on some outgoing vessel
and nothing has been heard from
