Do you wish Hawaii lo coma in

that with our mixed population it
will uot bo a practical step The
political parties in this country aro
so ovenly divided that it would not
do to have Hawaii in the Union at
n Statu Wo might then hold tun
balance of power and that would
not be desirable In fact that
possibility would prevent annexa
tion If wo can como into tho Union
as a Territory or somewhat liko a
State that will suit us Wo believe
that tho United Statos will not lose
anything politically or otherwise
but would gain much
Thero can bo no quostiou as lo
this intorviow for it bears tbo oar
marks of Hawaiis greatest liuancior
Ho in too modest wbeu ho disclaims
any desiro to hold tho balance of
power Why that is just what ho
always works for when on his own
dunghill It is true that bo has not
always tcored hulls eyes in Iub
efforts for powor but that is no roa
son why bo should uot try again
If tho interviowor had probed n lit
tlo doepor thoro would have been
fun in tho embarrassment of our
Minister For iuttaueo whou our
great uuanoioroaid If we can como
into tho Union as a Territory or
somewhat liko a State that will suit

is of tbo auoiont language of tho

District Court m of mich a nature

witnesses called by the nttornoyn
for the two mou told a straight
story They wore moreover men
of good standiuK and repute in tho
community and absolutely disintor

and evidently in some oaos maim
factum I ho man Hendrickson
was undoubtedly intoxicated on tho
