TILE PACIFIC COMMEECIAL ADVERTISER: HOSTOIVILL, AUGUST 31, 1395
"CLOUDS ARE ROLLING BY."
Enthusiastic- Correspondent Talks
Mu. Editor: The opinion of a
very large majority of the people of
thi3 country is in favor of annex
ing the Hawaiian Islands to the
United States of America. This
opinion prevails in every clasa of
society, and in every political party
save alone the small but noiey
group of chronic malcontents call
ed Mugwumps. These men, of
whom our President is the worship
ful master, are thoruhly mean,
vindictive, jealous and paltry. Be
cause President Harrison advocated
the measure of annexation the
Mugwumps, big and little, opposed
The latest elections, however,
show plainly enough how keenly
the people regret the change, which
their ballot3 (and mine) brought
about. Another election for presi
dent will take place in the fall of
1S9G, and the result will be of a
character to prove to the inhabit
ants of your beautiful ielands that
they will be warmly welcomed as a
part of our great commonwealth.
Happiness and prosperity for Ha
waii and for America will follow
the union. It is our present mis
fortune to be governed by a person
(for whom the writer unwittingly
voted) who, in following the bend
of a natural inclination, has shown
greater ability as a fisherman, than
as a statesman.
When the name of the president
was placed before the nominating
giving them an opportunity to lay
in a store of something else almost
a3 palatable, is unfair, especially
when the Government have had
the opportunity of doing so.
Politics cut no figure in what
is before us today. We should
one and all strive to put an end to
the sure death that 13 knocking at
our door. The Government, on the
other hand, should deal with the
Hawaiiau people in a kindly way,
as the history of this country has
taught us that no others but them
succumb to plagues of thi3 kind. )
Yours very truly,
John F. Colburn

ABOUT FISH AND POL
Colbnrn Believes It a Mista
to Tabu Them. 1
Mr. Editor: Upon passing the
fish market this afternoon I wa3
surprised to find that orders had
been issued to one and all at the
fish market to close their stalls,
throw away their meat and fish
and go home and the officers of the
law in full possession.
Hundreds of laborers and me
chanics on their way home were
unable to get their daily rations,
of either meat or fish and no one to
explain to them, other than those
who are undoubtedly angry with
the Government and were there, to
say that the Government wa3 bad.
I cam$ home and upon reading the
Star I find that the Board of
Health had a meeting today and
adopted regulations that poi and
fish are hereafter for an indefinite
period tabued, and I wonder what I The wonders of the Orient lay re-

It is true I have been an opposer
of this Government since the over
throw of the quef-n's government on
January 17, 1S93, in an honest,
straightforward way; but, never
theless, it cuts no figure with the
question at issue. Myself and
