Stn Francisco CMl December 1 The
Evening Bulletin rep comnienrhig upon
the Instructions tn Minister Willis as
disclosed in tho presidents Hawaiian mes-
sage rays
This Is certainly an unique proceeding
In diplomacy The provisional govern-
ment had been recognlisd by tho Hun la-
wn admlnut atlon nnd ih various pow
crn represented at Honolulu Clevelands
administration recognized It In due form
by accrediting tho minister to It yet that
minister Was Instructed to keep the gov-
ernment to which he Is accredited In com-
plete official Ignorance of the plans of the
government he represents while carrying
on negotiations with an Individual woman
who had been relegated to private life
by that recognized provisional govern-
ment If any Burop < nn power essayed
any such proceeding In the United States
Us minister would 1 > bundled out of the
country without ceremony The message
discloses a pitiful policy of myatry per-

will soy Tho people of tho United
fitatts will never approve of any active
agency government setting up a throne
and placlns a monarch upon It no matter
how tho throne camo to be overturned or
the monarch deposed
The Press The message of Cleveland
confessing his Infamous share In the Ha
wnllf n conspiracy will bo received with
delight by every monarrhlst throuuhout
the world and with shame and Indigna-
tion by the American people The only
possible palliation for such an Insult to the
Intolllgenco and patriotism of the Ameri-
can people Is the desperate situation Into
which lha president has plunged himself

Call republican says Accepting hi
facta frorr Blount the president makes
out n plausible case so far as his own
action Is concerned He does not state
why he had undertaken to play a lone
hand when congress was In session and
ready to assist but the assumption Is
fair he thought that when the special
sess6n came to an end he could win with-
out help Americans without distinction
qf party will feel regrst that an Amerl
oan president aliould dlsruss matters
growing out of a revolution from the
standprint that a ruler could do no
wrong That If wrong was attempted or
committed It had no bearing whatever
on the events that followed

KOnlan says Cleveland has preconceived
opinions or nutlous on Hawaiian af-
fairs He sent his paramount commis-
sioner with Instructions to get testimony
to sustain this pieconoelved opinion H
waa predetermined to restroe and uphold
a corrupt and degraded royalty He found
he could not do this and his message to
congress is a prolonged whine over his
failure Cleveland does not know tha
American people Ha Is not a democrat
nor a republican He Is the representative
and champion of raste class and priv-
ilege The whole peoplo of Ihe United
States are delighted when he speaks of
the cneck my plans have encountered in

revolution and the queen would not have
