HONOLULU II I FRIDAY MARCH 26 1897
THE HAWAIIAN PUOriE
Oapt Julius A Pnlmor Sneaks In
terestingly at tho Untvorsnllst
Ohurcli
Tho Univorsalist Chapel was filled
on Friday evoning January 15th
with members of tho Young Pooplos
Society and their friends Tho
speaker of the oveuing was Captain
Julius A Falmor tho secretary of
ex Quoou Liliuokalani of Hawaii
and the foots presented by Captain
Palmar wero all drawn from his
personal experience
He dwolt upon tho almost perfect
climatic cpuditious neither too hot
uor too cold tho simplo lifo man
uorn and customs of tho people
their simple natural diet etc The
staple article of food has been in
the pat poi and raw fish Poi in a
paste mudo from tho aro plant aud
is ojpoeially simplo aud nutritious
Tho natural uuconfiued lifo of the
people has made them a peculiarly
freo aud hospitable race Wo read
that the first Christians hold every
thing iu common and this latter
characteristic has always been true
of tho Hawaiiau They do not
rocoguizo tho meum aud team
Whou neighbors came iu at meal
times thoro was no counting of noses
ns everyone was allowed to put his
lingers iuto the common calabash of
poi When n young lady wished to
especially encourage a suitor sho
allowed him to tako the poi from
hor linger Their hospitality was
always free and henco they welcom
ed the missionaries opou heartedly
and gladly Never boforo iu tho
insiory 01 toruign missions wero
missionaries girou suoh a heartfelt
welcome
Theco missionaries carried to tho
islands a peculiarly hard kind of
Christian theology and because of
their Puritanical way and training
wero inclined to judge tho simplo
childlike ways of tho natives too
sovoroly Tho wickedness of tho
natives hasboou groatly oxaggorated
The missionaries ondoavored to re
form tho nation into n somblanco of
Puritanism and partially succeeded
Their huccocs was markod for ex
ample iu the spread of education
They made tho language a written
language
Visitors to tho islands almost
universally marry native women
The husband of tho presout ex
Queen was a former Ohauncey Hall
School boy and tho father of tho
crown princess at presout upon tho
Riviera was a Scotchman It is al
most a proverb thero that a white
girl cannot get a husband uuless sho
leaves the islands A certain bright
youug woman onco replied to this
later statement that in this respect
Hawaii voiy muoh resembled tho
Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Tho race resulting from this iutor
marriago is the coming raco of the
islands They are intelligent wido
awake aud progressive and possess
to a considerable oxtont tho stamina
of the Saxou race
Tho population is m ado up in
round numbers of 40000 natives aud
mixed 25 000 Japanese 15000 Chi
nese 15000 Portuguese and 5000
other foreigners of whioh about
2000 wero AmericauB Allowing
that every American on tho island is
a supporter of tho now government
wo have prosonted to us tho specta
cle of a republic ruled by but two
per cent of the entire population
The Anglo Saxon raco havo always
boeu a pushing raco aud tho Amer
icans are tho most piiahiug of all
When Americans get tho treasury
and tho resulting power about a
dozen of thorn could ccntrol tho
world Why is it that those islauds
aro rulod by the smallest mluority
that over controlled a nation
We hear considerable about tho
missionary party Now thoro aro
two moauingstotho torm missionary
The first missionaries wont thoro
filled with a zeal and firo to savo tho
people the wero tho cream of the
earth But they took thoir families
with them - aud missionaries aro
usually blfiRsod with large families
and theso young men born aud
brought up upon tho islauds soou
gaiuod the confidence of tho natives
gained riches and became moro and
more arrogant as tho time woro on
Thoy sought power and tho natives
woro soon deprived of thoir natural
rights Wo are apt to condemn the
fathers for tho sins of tho children
and to this day the term missionary
party is tided as a reproach The
children aro very different from tho
uoble baud of Christian workers
who caino from Boston seventy or
moro 3ears ago and aro woalthy
powerful and arbitrary Tho wholo
history of tho political changes of
tho islands is the history of the pro
gress of these s aud daughters of
missionaries and the simplo natives
have been so iufiuonced and over
awod that today they are strangers
in their own halls of legislation
The reciprocity treaty of 187G diu
much to overthrow the rulers of tho
islauds Iu 1875 the nation was
practically bankrupt Tho recipro
city treaty of the late king gave the
planters au enormous profit upon
their sugar and soou tho peoplo
wero absolutely in their power An
other great troublo was thoqucstiou
of laud tenure At first all the land
belonged to the crown Anyone de
siring land could obtain tho uso of
it freely but tho foe remained with
tho kiug A system was introduced
in 1810 where by the laud was divid
ed into thro parts One third was
set apart for tho people ono third
was leased to provide revenue for
tho government and one third be
came tho proporty of tho ruling
monarch
It was not long before the peo
ples land was in tho baud of those
sons of missionaries aud to day tho
uatives have no laud realty in conso
quonco of the division Tho govern
ment laud which was leased to tho
sugar plautors has beon confiscated
by tho so called republic
In 1887 the sugar plautors called
upon the king for a new constitu
tion and under duress a new ono
was drawn up uudor which tho for
eigners wero given inestinnblo privi
leges oven an alieu being allowed
to tako au active part in tho govern
ment This was the rule from 1887
to 1893 aud then tho Queen pro 1
posed to restore to her people thoir j
formor rights
Her action was made tho oxousn
for overthrowiug the government by
a fow American aided by United
States troops lauded with the cou
Bout of tbo American Minister upou
tho plea that they would bo neces
sary to preserve oruer Miuister
Blount was sent to Hawaii by tho
Prosideut and upon his roturn ro
ported in favor of restoriug tho
Quoon to power President Clove
laud at once called upon President
Dole to stop down aud out but
President Dolo said that ho would
rather uot Tho Unitod Stales Con
gress then rofused to allow any fur
ther action to be taken Tho Miu
ister who lauded tho troops and
aidod aud abetted tho revolution
was thus seemingly moro powerful
thau tho President of tho Unitod
States The Quoeu itibisted that
there should be no bloodshed and
ordorod her Marshal to glvo up
It has been said If this is the state
of affairs why haveut tho natives
fought for their rights In tho first
place they are not a fightiug nation
Iu tho second placo they havo beon
taught by the missionaries that thero
is nothing quito so sacred ns ouo
drop of white blood Tho story of
tho killing of Captain Cook who
by tho way was killed iu a mere
sailors brawl has been usod an ob
ject lessou siuco tho first Thoy ore
practically a disfranchised people
