Thurston, John Stevens, and W O Smith, the architects of the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawai`i, have been reincarnated as Harold Rice, Patrick Barrett, and Earl Arakaki. The Kamehameha trustees have disappointed the people who look to them for leadership and passively yielded to the demands of our adversaries, much like the cabinet that abandoned our last queen, Lili`uokalani, in her hour of need.

Several days later it was partially reported when the Green's leader signaled a softening of the stance on Mäori sovereignty because "many people find the
