Excerpt from Constitutional History of Hawaii

The beginning of the present century found all the islands united under one king in the person Of Kamehameha I. The process by which this union was brought about is an inter esting though rude illustration of the important bearing facility of communication and transportation has upon political pro gress. When Vancouver visited the islands in 1792 Kame hameha was king of the Single island of Hawaii. His savage heart yearned for a vessel of the European type. Upon Vancouver's third visit a keel was laid and a small craft con structed for the king. In ten years Kamehameha had twenty vessels ranging in size from 25 to 50 tons burden. These plied among the islands and a rude commerce developed. The enter prising chief had long been encouraging a warlike spirit among his subjects. He next introduced fire-arms. This with his formidable little navy soon gave him considerable power, which he successfully exercised in the conquest of the other islands.

Kamehameha instituted a form of personal government which indicated some organization. The lands of the con quered islands were regarded as crown lands, and the king apportioned them to his followers according to rank and upon purely feudal princi ples.1 He exacted in return fealty, mili tary service and a portion of the revenues of each estate granted. The king appointed a governor for each island, who in turn appointed the tax-collectors, heads Of districts, and other petty Officers, subject in all cases to the king's approval.
