I. OSWALD LUTTED,
H AWAIIANS N OFFICE.
Editor Advertiser: Much is said nowadays concerning the
right and aptitude of the present-day Hawaiians to hold office, but
an analysis of the history of office holding since the time when
Kamehameha III. appointed his first cabinet in 1842, shows that
the Hawaiian sovereign appointed but few men of native parentage
to positions of trust. The sovereigns generahy selected men of the
Anglo-Saxon race, and in some instances when the right material
did not appear to be locally available, sent abroad.
The argument may be used that in the days of the formative
period of Hawaiian history, the native race had not been long
enough associated with the white nationalities to have sufficient
knowledge of civilized government to undertake public reisporisibili-1
ties. This is probably true, but in the reiems of Kamehameha IV.
and V. the better class of Hawaiians, to say nothing of the alii
class, had reached a perfection in educational and governmental
matters which showed the depth of interest displayed in them by
Rev. Mr. Cooke and other missionaries who taught the Hawaiians at
the Royal school and elsewhere. At this stage of local history
some fine types of splendidly equipped Hawaiians came into public
notice. But even then few had the favor shown them by their
sovereigns to be appointed to the higher and purely executive offices
or those that were not honorary. The general rule, followed even
by Liliuokalani, was to select foreigners for the cabinet and heads
of departments, the subordinate positions being reserved largely,
however, for Hawaiians.
The early educators first found the best material in the Hawaiian
gentry, as no one,, under the monarchical system could hold office
except he be of that class. The. new system of government, brought
into being by Kamehameha III. under the direction of his foreign
advisers, which was the system in vogue until the Territory of
Hawaii was organized, was not altogether an unknown quantity
to the Hawaiians of the better class of that period, as statecraft
and diplomacy were matters of native education before the foreigner
ever set foot permanently on Hawaiian soil.
The American system of government gives the, right to every
citizen within the borders of the union the right to aspire to the
highest public offices in the nation, but it does reserve the right,
through its electorate, to place only men of the best character and
ability in such offices.
Analyzing office-holding from Kamehameha III.s, reign down
to the close of Liliuokalani's, there are few men of the native
race who-have been favored with royal favor. In the first cabinet
of Kamehameha III. was John Young 2nd, son of John Young, the
foreign adviser of Kamehameha I., the mother being a high chiefess
of the Hawaiian race. Ilk was the uncle of Oueen Emma. Mr.
Young was Minister of the Interior through this reign. Again in
Kamehameha IV.'s reign Mr. Young occupied the same post. Lot
Kamehameha, afterwards Kamehameha V., completed Mr. Young's
the reign of Kalakaua, P. Xahaolelua was Minister of Fin
ance in his first cabinet, occupying the same position in the second '
cabinet. In the third cabinet W. L. Moehonua was Minister of
the Interior, and in the fourth cabinet was J. M. Kapena a:; Minister
of Finance, in the fifth occupying the office of Foreign Affairs. The j
latter .official was something of a scholar. Simon K. Kaai was j
Minister of Finance in the fifth cabinet. In later cabinets were;
M. Kuaea, Minister of Finance; J. E. Bush, Minister of the Interior;
Simon K. Kaai, Minister of the Interior asrain ; P. P. Kanoa, Min-;
ister of Finance; L. Aholo, Minister of the Interior; J. L. Kaulukou, ;
Attorney-General; J. A. Cummins, Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Joseph Nawahi was the first Minister of Foreign Affairs in Liliuo-;
kalani's reign. Then followed Mark P. Robinson, Minister of For
eign Affairs; Samuel Parker, Minister of Foreign Affairs; John.
F. Colburn, Minister of the Interior. j
Throughout . the nine years of Kamehameha V.'s reign only ;
foreigners were cabinet officers. ;
In the Judiciary Department Hon. John Ii was appointed
second associate justice of the Superior Court on January 1, 1846,
the court becoming the Supreme Court in 1852. R. G. Davis, also
a Hawaiian, was appointed second associate Justice on July 10,
1868, resigning just a year later.
formation of the government, almost distinctively Hawaiian, it being '
peculiarly an office to which it was deemed proper to .appoint a
Hawaiian alii. The office, in fact, was vice-regal in its relation to
the Hawaiian subjects of the sovereign, the governors and govern
esses standing as the representatives of the sovereign.
" The only two haoles to hold the office of Governor were John
O. Dominis, appointed for Oahu, by Kamehameha IV., who remained
in office until the accession of Liliuokalani, when he became Prince
Consirt. The Hon. A. S. Cleghorn took his place as Governor.
The other Governors were Paki, Hawaii ; Naihe, Hawaii ; Hoapili
I., Maui; Kuakini, Hawaii ; Keikioewa, Kauai; Kekuanoa, Oahu;
Princess Rufh Keelikolani, Hawaii ; Moehonua, Hawaii; Kipi,
Hawaii ; Princess Kekaulike, Hawaii ; High Chiefess Ululani Baker,
Hawaii; F. W. K. Beckley, Kauai; Robert Hoapili, Maui; P. P.
Kanoa, Kauai, Naoholelua, Maui.
King Kalakaua, before his election as King, had been Postmaster-General,
all others having been foreigners. The only Hawaii
an Marshal of the Kingdoui was J. L. Elaulukou, during the reign
of Kalakaua. C. B. Wilson was Marshal during Liliuokalani's reign,
and while he is a Polynesian, he is not a Hawaiian, having been
born in Tahiti. ... ' ,
There have been only three or four Hawaiian chamberlains,
and these all presided during Kalakaua's reign. They were' the late
Edward Boyd, Sr., F. W. K. Beckley, Curtis Iaukea and one other.
THE DATE PALM FOR LOCAL CULTURE.
The purpose of this is to call the attention of our home makers
to the desirability of the date palm for cultivation in these Islands.
The growing of the best sort of dates where the climate is favorable
promises to be more profitable than any other fruit culture possible,
in any of our hot dry localities.
There is no land too dry nor climate too hot for this valuable
palm as long as the roots have moisture. It will grow on land so
salty as to prevent the culture of any other paying crop and render
feasible the reclamation of all our salt land from Koko Head to
Kahuku, by the sea shore, where hundreds of thousands of date
and cocoanut palms should grow; also on Hawaii, Maui, and Kauai
and on all drv and otherwise worthless land.
Unlike most fruit trees the date palms have the male and female
flowers on separate individuals and have to be pollinated artificially.
A twig of male flowers is attached to the cluster of female
flowers. This completes the operation of pollination. In the early
seventies the writer planted a number of offshoots in Kapiolani
Park and other places from some old pal'ms at Adams Garden.
Kalihi, which are now in bearing, but as the flowers had not been
pollinated, the fruit is worthless. The value of dates imported into
the United States averages $600,000 a year. We could grow all this
in Hawaii on our waste land.
For any one interested in the culture of this valuable palm and
its growing, I shall be more than delighted to tell what little I know
how to grow and where to grow this noble tree, as they are now
cultivated in Arizona in the Salton Basin.
