Atlantic Weekly Telegraph (Newspaper) - February 22, 1893, Atlantic, Iowa THE WEEKLY FEBRUARY VOLUME NUMBER The Hawaiian Treaty Is Re ported On NEARLY A UNANIMOUS VOTE Jfewmui Falls to Interview Secretary Thuratone I ply to Jnekaonc Sue ana Senate is expected that the Hawaiian annexation treaty which was favorably reported to the senate by the unanimous vote of the committee on foreign relations except that of Gray will be considered at an executive session of the senate to he held NenmaBu and Foster Fall to When Paul the queena called at the state department on was informed that Secretary Foster would see him immediately upon his return from Fos ter expected to reach the city in the af ter noon but was detained by late trains until after 0 He had fixed the hour for the appointment with Neumann last Thursday morning at 7 But Neumann failed to ap although the secretary waited an hour for him and fearing that he might have mistaken the time or pos sibly been he sent his sec retary to the hotel to notify Neu mann that he was waiting to receive But Neumamn was not at his hotel BO the interview was pot The following is the substance of a statement made by Thurston of the Hawaiian heretofore as Princess purports to have ad dressed a note to the American which has been published in the The note in question sets forth that at the request of then Ha waiian I was sent away to England to be educated and fitted for the position by the of I was to The only criticism that I desire to make upon this statement is that First did not at any either directly or request that the lady in question be sent to or any to be or for any other as cabinet minister nor in any other official capacity nor in have I ever had anything to do with the education or lady went to England about At that time she was not heir to the and had no standing under the constitution of Kalakaua was then and the ex Queen hid was by law the By Kalakauaa death she came to the throne in She then had the power to nominate her successor subject to the ratification of the house of which was done This was the ear liest date at which Kaiulani had any standing under the constitution as heir to the As a matter of the young ladys father is a British subject her is the British consul at Honolulu and his business is her business agent and has control of her in The young lady was sent to England by her father against a strong feeling in Honolulu that it would be best that she be educated in the United As to the intimation that ton is now in Washington trying to take away my flag and throne regardless of the fact that the only way in which she can come to the throne is by usurping the position and dispossessing her I would say that Thurston and his fellow commissioners are acting only as the mouthpieces of thousands of their fellow citizens who have been reluctantly forced to their present action in self pro Until very recently there have been no more radical opponents of an nexation on the islands than the Ha waiian born children of the American residents They took an interest in the affairs of the country beyond that of the natives themselves and only the inexorable logic of events has forced them to action now Judge f Harrison will send in a successor to Judge Jackson on the circuit This end the story that the confirm ation of Jackson was secured through an understanding that the vacancy should be left open for the President Harrison will probably name Walter a wellknown Kentucky Evans was at one time commissioner of internal and has held other positions of He is
