representatives of the provisional government

stated in effect that even if the

Hawaiian government by an abuse of the au

Mr. Dole to Mr. Willis:
Howomtld, Dee. tX lK Sir: Your Excel
lency's communication of December 18.
nounclnic the conclusion which the president
of the United Mate of America has finally
arrived at respecting the application of this
government for a treaty of practical union
with that country and referring also to the
domestic affairs of these islands, has bad the
consideration of the government.
While it Is with deep disappointment that
we learn tnai tna important pss position
which we have submitted to the government
01 tbe united Mate and wntcn was at nrt fa
vorably considered by It has at length been re
jected, we have experienced a souse) of relief
tbat we are now favored with the orst official
information on the subject thst bas been re
set ved through a period of over nine months
While we accept the decision of the presi
dent of tbe United htatcs, declining further
to consider tbe annexation proposition as the
nnal conclusion or tne present administration,
we do not foel Inclined to regard It as tbe last
ord of the American government upon this
subject, for tbe history of the mutual relation
rt the two eountrlt-s of American effort and
.iifliience In building up the Christian
civilization which bas so conspicuously aided
In vtvlnif this country an honorable place
among ina-penjeni nations, tne goovraphlcal
position or lueie Islands and tbe Important,
and. to both countries. piotlUblo reciprocal
commercUl Interests which nave long existed,
together with our weakness as a sovereign
nation, all point with convincing force
to practical union between the two
countries as necessary to gain tbe result
from tbe circumstance mentioned. This con
victlon Is emphasized by the favorable expres
sion or American statesmen over a long period
In favor of annexation, conspicuous among
whom are the names of W U. Marcy. William
H Seward. Hamilton Fish and James U.
Ulalne, all former secretaries of stite, and
especially sj by tbe action of your last
administration In neKOtiatlng s treaty of an
nexation with this government snd sending it
to tbe senate with a view of Its ratiUcation.
We shall, therefore, continue the project of
political union wun tne united Mates as
conspicuous feature of our forelxn policy, con
fldently hoping that sooner or later It will be
crowned with success to tbe lasting benefit of
The additional portion of vour communica
tion referrinr to our domestio affairs with a
view to interfering therein is a new departure
in tbe relations of the two government.!. Your
information tbat the president of tbe United
mates expects this government to '-promptly
rellnaulsb authority" with the ouestlon: "Are
you willing to abide by the dee.sloa of the
presiientr- migm wen oeaismisseainssingie
word, out ro' tne circumstance that your com-
tnunlcatoln contains, as it appears to me, mis
statements, erroneous conclusion based there
on that are so perjudlclal to this government
tbat I eannot permit thorn to pass unchalleng

cnxracier or tots proposition make it appro
priate tor me to discuss sumewnac iuiiv ins
question raised by It.
we ao not recognize tne ngni or tne presi
dent of tbe United States to interfere in our
domestic affairs. Such right could be con
ferred upon him by the act of this government
ana by tnai aione, or it couia be acquired by
conquest This. I understand to be the Amer
ican doctrine conspicuously announced from
lime to time by tne autuorities or your gov
ernment Resident Juckton said In hts mes-
to congress In 1H.K): "The uniform poller and

This principle ot International law hat been
consistently reconntzed durln t the whole past
intercourse o( tbe twa countries and was ro-
eestly reoonnrmed In tbe Instructions Klven
by Secretary Gresham to Commissioner
Hloimt on March 11. HKO. and by the latter
published In the newspapers In Honolulu In a
letter of bis own to the Hawaiian public The
words ot these instructions, which I refer to,
are as follows "1 he United States claim no

this point, exceptlnc such as may be contained

by her ministers and leaders of the movement

IVesident Dole here quotes the ex
queen's letter, which bas been hereto
fore published. He then proceeds:
If any understanding had existed at that
time between ner and toe government to sub'
mit tbe question of bx-r resiorat-oo to the
United states, some reference to some suet
understanding would naturally have appeared
in this letter, as trood reason would have exist
ed tor caning tne attent.on of tbe president to
that fact, and especially ss she then knew that
her attorney would be seriously delayed in
reaenmg vvasningioa nut mere is not a word
from which such an understanding can be pre
dicated. The government sent its commis
sioners to Washington for tbe sole purpose of
securing toe connruiatioa or tne recognition

and to enter Into negotiations for political
union too ma unuea states.
Tbe protestor tbe ex queen made on Junu

arbitration exists, may not be disposed of
upon an exparte and secret investigation with
out the knowled.eof such government or an
opportunity to be heard or even to know who
tbe witnesses were
My position Is briefly this: If thn American
forces Illegally assisted tbe revolutionists ia
tbe establishment of the provisional covorn
ment. that sovernment is not resnonaihla for
their wrong doing It wag purely a private
matter for discipline between the United
States government and its officers Thore is,
I submit, no precedent in inter
national law for the theory that
such aotlon of the American troops
has connferred upon the United States
authority over the International affairs of this
government Should It be true as yon have
suggested, that tbe American government
made itself responsible to the queen who. it is
auegea, tost nor inrone thrown such action,
tbat is not a mutter for me to discuss, except
to submit that if such be the easo.it is a
matter for the American government and
her to settle between themselves. This
sovernment, a recognized sovereign power,
equal in authority with the United
states government and enjoying diplomatic
relations with it, cannot be destroyed by it for
the sake of discharging its oblixations to the
ex-queen Upon these grounds. Mr. Minister,
