Hawaiian Islands

Since the middle of the 19th century, the Hawaiian Islands, whose almost only export product was sandalwood, began to develop sugar production. An additional impetus to the development of sugarcane plantations on the islands was given by an agreement concluded with the United States in 1875, according to which Hawaiian sugar was imported duty-free to the American market, and Hawaii in exchange provided land to the United States of America for the creation of the Pearl Harbor naval base. The signing of this agreement also attracted American businessmen to Hawaii, who invested significant sums in the development of the sugar industry and over the next decades had a significant impact on the development of the islands.

After the death in 1872 of Kamehamea V, who left no heirs, and the short reign of King Lunalilo from 1872 to 1874, the founder of the new Kalakaua I dynasty sat on the throne of Hawaii. the king was forced to sign the Constitution of the Kingdom of Hawaii, significantly restricting the rights of the monarch. Kalākaua I’s sister Liliuokalani, who became queen in 1891 and sought to regain her lost power, was overthrown on January 17, 1893, in a coup organized by American citizens and supported by American marines.

The interim government declared joining the United States of America one of its primary tasks, but Grover Cleveland, who took office as President of the United States on March 4, 1893, was dissatisfied with the situation in Hawaii. He approached Congress with a proposal to investigate the circumstances of the removal of Liliuokalani and, possibly, return her power over the islands, but did not find support among the senators.

On July 4, 1894, the Republic of Hawaii was proclaimed, with Sanford Dole as its first (and only) President. In 1895, supporters of the restoration of royal power, led by Robert Wilcox, tried to raise an uprising, but were quickly defeated and arrested. After William McKinley became the “owner” of the White House in 1897, the leaders of the republic again turned to the US Government with a proposal for annexation. The corresponding decision was made and on July 7, 1898, Hawaii became a territory of the United States, and Sanford Dole was appointed the first governor.

In the first decades of the 20th century, the sugar industry continued to develop on the islands, which for a long time remained the main branch of the Hawaiian economy. At the same time, almost all sugar production was controlled by five large American companies (known as the “big five”), which actually led the political life of the territory. Another important agricultural crop was pineapples, the island of Lanai at one time provided three-quarters of the world’s production of these fruits.
