This chapter examines the role played by Celso Cesare Moreno in Hawaiian politics and its destiny as a U.S. territory. It discusses the political changes in Hawaii during Moreno's time there, beginning with his 1887 publication of a pamphlet, which included a letter to King David Kalākaua asking for reimbursement of the expenses that Moreno incurred for the maintenance of the three Hawaiian students: Robert William Wilcox, Robert Napu'uako Boyd, and James Kaneholo Booth. In the letter, Moreno also attacked Walter Murray Gibson, whom he said was not qualified to be prime minister of Hawaii. The chapter also considers Moreno's views about the Reciprocity Treaty and the Hawaiian question; Hawaii's Bayonet Constitution; Wilcox's emergence as a revolutionary; the rise of Kalākaua's sister Lili'uokalani as his successor to the throne; and the annexation of Hawaii as a U.S. territory in 1898.

Keywords:   annexation, Celso Cesare Moreno, Hawaiian politics, David Kalākaua, Robert William Wilcox, Walter Murray Gibson, Reciprocity Treaty, Hawaiian question, Bayonet Constitution, Lili'uokalani
