"Legation of Japan, Washington, July
10. Blr: Replying to your note of date
the th ult.. In answer to mine uf the
l 'ih ult, regarding the proposed ai.ncxa
ton of the llawulan inlands to the Cnlted
ttinteM. I have the honor to Inform you
that 1 communicated in substan.-e to
Count Okumo, from whom I am In re
ceipt of tcUgrapliic Instructions embody
ing the vlewsh of the ImportaJ govern
ment In relation thereto.
Taking note of wh&t you say In re
ply lo the representation I had the hon
or lo make In behalf of my government
with reference to the necessity of main
taining the status quo of Hawrat, the
Imperii! government has no hesRi .ton In
admitting the predominant Influence of
the Cnlted Btatea In the Haw.win tal
ands.
"In their opinion, however, the very
fact that predominance nas existeo so
long unquestioned might oe .urgeo aa
rtaxon arulnst Uic oisurinr i .e
status quo, more especially as practically
the. whole population acknowledges the
paramount importance of the relations
of their country with the United States
while it is understood that only a small
fraction of that number favor annexa
tion.
"From this it may be reasonably In
'.rr.d that the predominant and para
mount Infiuene of the United Slates,
which, as you remark, has 'been the
cue eiwontial feature of the staus quo
through three-quaners of a century. In
which the constitution and government
of Hawaii and the commerce of the Isl
ands with the world have undergone
notable changes." furnishes on the one
bund the amplest guarantee against any
thing Inimical to either the United
States or Hawaii, while on he other hand
it obviates the necessity of a change In
existing conditions which will Injuriously
aifect the Interests of others.
"Tho policy of colonial expansion
among European countries was especial
ly active on the Pacific during the de
cade endng ISM. and aa a result, nearly
all of the Island groups then autonomous
passed under tho sway of various West
ern powers. By common accord the
powers have reoontly appeared willing to
stay their hands and International rival
ly and conflicting Intoreats aro now the
beat guarantees for the continued sov
ereign existence of tho few remaining
island groups. Yet, the aiworptlon by
the United States of such an Important
part of tho remaining unappropriated
region as Haw-all would doubtless be the
signal for the removal of dormant terri
torial ambition In the Paclflo and the
last vestige of tuitlrt) aatonomy wouid
disappear. ''
"It can easily be seen now this would
affect tho tntorosla of Japanese subjects
who are now engaging In Increasing
numbers In. various undertakings nod en
terprises In the Paclflo with profit to
thomaolves and advantage to Japan, It
was precisely on aooount of the prrra
Icnco of this spirit of colonial absorption
that one of your honorable prodeoasaora
was led to doclara to rha Oarmaa ajov
ornmont that your gorernmont attached
groat Importance to he "tnAtnotianoe of
rights to which the United, States t
contos entitled In tino dew ramcLmng
rotrlon now under Independent and au
tonomous native govornmonts rn the
Paclflo ocean.'
"Tho Justice of that declaration ean
not be questioned, and the imperial gov
ernment, eotrtaJntna similar Ttenn,
could not bohold wttb tndlHsreo
changcu In too status of tbosa gorarB
monts tbat would exttngrdsb Xananese
rights. They have no Intention of ques
tioning the actual situation In the PaoiOe
and oartalnly no desire to in anywise
disturb It, but their position in tbat part
of the world renders it impossible for
thorn to view with tmoonoarn and In- a
spirit of acqulesoense the oonsequenoes
which would probably follow the extlno
tion of the Hawaiian sovereignty. The
Imperial government recognises It as a
well eatablshed principle of International
law that the completion of annexation
would render the treaties and conven
tions at present existing between Japan
and Hawaii voidable, either at the option
of Japan or the Unttod States, but they
cannot anticipate without approhenslon

dlraot, which, would foflow tho pr4U

branch of the subject, I have the honor specting the boundary,
to call your attention to a note ail- '
dressed on March 4. JfSS, by your honor
able predeoessor. Mr. Bayard, to Mr.
Von Albenselben. the German minister
to the United Slates. In reply to the
oflV-Ui announcement of the protecto
rate established by Germany over cer-
tain Island groups In the Pacflc. Re,tJha" 110 lrocV In the territory, and in
ring to the declaration made oo T - -
of the German government, UaaJi
esiRoniwrt ngnts or tnird parties' were
to be respected. Mr. Bayard replied that
In the absence of precise knowledge
as to the meaning Intended to be given
to the term 'well-establbihed rights,' he
believed that be Interpreted It rightly
a declaration that American cllzens
who already had established or might
establish then-after themselves on the
island In question. In peaceful accord
with the natves ami on a footng of per
fect equality with settlers of German and
other nationality, would not be disturbed
In their rights of residence or otherwise
discriminated against as compared with
German subjects by reason of the estab
lishment of a German protectorate.
"Without pausing to consider the an- '
alogy In many essential places between j
the- principle thus announced by the
United States In 1&3 and that now main
tained by Japan, I have the honor to
state that if tbe United States govern
ment attach to the expression "vested
rights' the same significance given In
Mr. Bayard's note t the' term 'well-established
rights," the imperial govern
ment would have little to complain of
under this head.
"But the absolute extinction of Ja
pans treaties and conventions without
even the formality of previous notice .
creates a very different situation, not '
alone by removing conventional privl- j
leges nnd exemptions, but also by sub- '
stltutlng therefor new and burdensome j
changes. In that case the application J
of the United States customs laws to ,
Hawaii would check the further devel-
opment of the Japanese trade, the exten- !
sion of the United States naturalisation -
and Immigration laws would be detrt- 1
mental to the future residential and ,
Industrial rights of Japanese subjects, j
and enforcement of United States navt- j
gatlon laws, making the carrying trade I
between this country and Hawroll a part
of the coasting trade, would probably
Prove fatal to tho Interests of Japanese
steamship lines crossing the Paclflc
"1 would signally fall In tho duty
which bas been Intrusted to me If I did
not odd that this full and frank expla
nation of the views of the Imperial gov
ernment Is due, not alone to their wish
to protect the Interests confined to their
core, but also to their desire to remove
all possible cause for misunderstanding
between tha government of the United
States and themselves.
"I should also add that I bare received
with great pleasure your courteous ac
knowledgement of tho disclaimer I bad
th honor to make on behalf of my
government in regard to the false report
that facon has flonttt ns against Ha
waii. rssrwt to say, however, that similar
reports or constantly appearlcui even
tn tha reputable section of the American
press, and oouplcxl with baseless or dis
torted: accounts of occurrences In Japan
and Hawaii are now, I am credibly in
formed, been nrgod tn responsible quar
ters aa a pretext for immediate action
upon tha treaty of annexation. There
for, I have the. honor to repeat that
Spa has) mo designs of any kind what
ever inimical to Hawaii, and no motive
tn her dealings with that country except
t sseure by lesrltlmate means the due
of uat obligations.
