Question. Colonel, what do you think about Mr. Cleveland's Hawaiian policy?

Answer. I think it exceedingly laughable and a little dishonest —with the further fault that it is wholly unconstitutional. This is not a one-man Government, and while Liliuokalani may be Queen, Cleveland is certainly not a king. The worst thing about the whole matter, as it appears to me, is the bad faith that was shown by Mr. Cleveland—the double-dealing. He sent Mr. Willis as Minister to the Provisional Government and by that act admitted the existence, and the rightful existence, of the Provisional Government of the Sandwich Islands.

When Mr. Willis started he gave him two letters. One was addressed to Dole, President of the Provisional Government, in which he addressed Dole as "Great and good friend," and at the close, being a devout Christian, he asked "God to take care of Dole." This was the first letter. The letter of one President to another; of one friend to another. The second letter was addressed to Mr. Willis, in which Mr. Willis was told to upset Dole at the first opportunity and put the deposed Queen back on her throne. This may be diplomacy, but it is no kin to honesty.

In my judgment, it is the worst thing connected with the Hawaiian affair. What must "the great and good" Dole think of our great and good President? What must other nations think when they read the two letters and mentally exclaim, "Look upon this and then upon that?" I think Mr. Cleveland has acted arrogantly, foolishly, and unfairly. I am in favor of obtaining the Sandwich Islands—of course by fair means. I favor this policy because I want my country to become a power in the Pacific. All my life I have wanted this country to own the West Indies, the Bermudas, the Bahamas and Barbadoes. They are our islands. They belong to this continent, and for any other nation to take them or claim them was, and is, a piece of impertinence and impudence.

So I would like to see the Sandwich Islands annexed to the United States. They are a good way from San Francisco and our Western shore, but they are nearer to us than they are to any other nation. I think they would be of great importance. They would tend to increase the Asiatic trade, and they certainly would be important in case of war. We should have fortifications on those islands that no naval power could take.

Some objection has been made on the ground that under our system the people of those islands would have to be represented in Congress. I say yes, represented by a delegate until the islands become a real part of the country, and by that time, there would be several hundred thousand Americans living there, capable of sending over respectable members of Congress.

Now, I think that Mr. Cleveland has made a very great mistake. First, I think he was mistaken as to the facts in the Sandwich Islands; second, as to the Constitution of the United States, and thirdly, as to the powers of the President of the United States.

Question. In your experience as a lawyer what was the most unique case in which you were ever engaged?

Answer. The Star Route trial. Every paper in the country, but one, was against the defence, and that one was a little sheet owned by one of the defendants. I received a note from a man living in a little town in Ohio criticizing me for defending the accused. In reply I wrote that I supposed he was a sensible man and that he, of course, knew what he was talking about when he said the accused were guilty; that the Government needed just such men as he, and that he should come to the trial at once and testify. The man wrote back: "Dear Colonel: I am a —— fool."

Question. Will the church and the stage ever work together for the betterment of the world, and what is the province of each?

Answer. The church and stage will never work together. The pulpit pretends that fiction is fact. The stage pretends that fiction is fact. The pulpit pretence is dishonest—that of the stage is sincere. The actor is true to art, and honestly pretends to be what he is not. The actor is natural, if he is great, and in this naturalness is his truth and his sincerity. The pulpit is unnatural, and for that reason untrue. The pulpit is for another world, the stage for this. The stage is good because it is natural, because it portrays real and actual life; because "it holds the mirror up to nature." The pulpit is weak because it too often belittles and demeans this life; because it slanders and calumniates the natural and is the enemy of joy.

U.S. President Cleveland Again Gave Hawaii back to Queen Liliuokalani.

SAYS GOVERNMENT SUPPORTS TRUSTS; Mr. Hitchcock Condemns System of Army and Navy Contracts. ARMOR PLATE AS EXAMPLE Beef Trust, Shipbuilding Trust, and Railroads Cited -- Bates Calls Cleveland a Receptive Candidate.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 20. -- That the Federal Government, which is supposed to be after the trusts, is making large contracts with them and paying them the people's money, was charged by Representative Hitchcock (Dem., Neb.) in the course of a vigorous criticism of the army and navy expenditures in the House to-day.

The article at the beginning shows discussions of Mr. Chandler, an attorney who was available to be interviewed and it sounds like a good argument; however,  Lack of information by Mr.  Chandler about the Premeditation efforts made prior to the planned dethronement of our Queen changes the whole discussion, changes the whole legal conclusion.

Under the 1849/1850 Treaty of the Kingdom of Hawaii and the United States  of America, the issues of piracy, pillaging, theft, etc. is covered under Article XIV.  Persons who moved to do such things were to be prosecuted, imprisoned, and the country who they came from would be contacted and that country would have to remove their citizens from the Kingdom of Hawaii's properties.

The persons involved in the Treaty of one of the most favored nations called the Kingdom of Hawaii/ Hawaiian Kingdom were only Kamehameha III - Kauikeaouli, his heirs, and successors, and the U.S. President Zachary Taylor.

The Treaty was ratified by our Sovereign Kamehameha III - Kauikeaouli in 1850.  It was also ratified by the U.S.  The Treaty was a contractual agreement between two recognized nations.

U.S. President Benjamin Harrison was in collusion and aware of the Premeditation efforts of pirate individuals who moved to dethrone our Queen Liliuokalani.  His Vice-President Levi P. Morton was also in collusion because he was a banker who returned to his bank after not being re-elected.  He was an expert in international bank transfers and then sold his bank to the J.P. Morgan bankers.

It appears that the Vice-President Levi P. Morton took part in the theft of Hawaiian monies and was an international pirate.

The U.S. was bankrupt because of the American Civil War of 1863-1865 costs. (England also lost large sums of monies due to investments in financing the American Civil War as well.)

The U.S. Gold was at an all time low.

Premeditation of assuming a neutral, friendly, non-violent nation has been documented.

U.S. President Benjamin Harrison was a former American Civil War Union Brigadier General.

Further explanations of the interviewed attorney Mr. Chandler also showed the following points:


Premeditation found.  

Queen Liliuokalani and her people were under stress, duress, usurpation, coercion and confronted with an armed military made up of 162 armed men with gatling guns, etc.

Reference:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overthrow_of_the_Kingdom_of_Hawaii

Conspiracy shows persons guilty of crimes.  

Reference:  William Lee, Judge in the Kingdom of Hawaii, HAWAIIAN REPORTS (1851),  Supreme Court/Archives/Main Library, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

Piracy, pillaging, etc. documented.

Reference:  see below

1849/1850 Treaty of the Kingdom of Hawaii and the United States is a permanent friendship and amity contract between two (2) solvent nations.

Note:  In 1893, the U.S. was bankrupt.

The Provisional government was made up of the 1/3 part of the Hawaiian government who were treasonous persons.  Their positions were temporary, voted in positions.

They were in "political possession of the Territory of Hawaii, all the government buildings, revenues, and the properties thereof".

They also obtained support from foreign representatives who were also under stress, duress, usurpation.  

They were not the persons who signed into Treaties with the Kingdom of Hawaii,

All lands of the Kingdom of Hawaii are either alodio to only kanaka maoli or fee simple to aliens.

This means that the government buildings are part of the Alodio lands of the Royal Families.

A U,S. Representative asked to borrow monies from the Kingdom of Hawaii - Kalakaua's reign and was denied because it would take more than a thousand years to repay.  The U.S. Representative intended to pay only an interest each year and he was denied.

The point of all of this is that U.S. President Cleveland did Give Hawaii Back to Queen Liliuokalani in 1894 and 1897.  Also, Premeditation, Conspiracy, Piracy Nulls and Voids all the wrongs that were done by the usurpers and the U.S. involvement in defending the pirates, pillagers, racketeers documented were illegal, and the pursuit of crimes by U.S. Presidents shows international piracies and the failure to adhere to their own U.S. Constitution from 1850.

Additionally, William Chang, Retired Professor of the John Burns Law School has also found that the claimed annexation was all lies.  See:  http://blog.hawaii.edu/aplpj/files/2015/09/APLPJ_16_2_Chang.pdf
