III HAWAII IS CASTLE'S THEME
"Reminiscences of the Revolution of
Twenty Years Ago in Hawaii" was the
subject of an interesting address de
livered by W. R. Castle before the
members of the Newcomers' Club at
their fellowship supper in th4 Young
Men 8 Christian Association last even
ing. v Mr. Castle was one of the band of
patriots which faced the danger when
chc crisis came on Jan. 14, 1893, and
which took a part in bringing the
Itign of royalty to a close in the Ha
waiian islands.. Last Saturday night
at the residence of Mr. Castle, thg rev
olutionists of twenty years ago met for
a reunion and recalled and talked ov
er the the events prior to the over
throw of the Hawaiian monarchy.
When the queen selected the cabinet
which was composed of Parker, Pe
terson, Colburn and Cornwell, the
Americans became disgusted and it
was at this time that the first move
ment toward the' revolution was begun.
On January 14, 1893, it was learned
that the queen' was endeavoring to
force her cabinet to sign a new con
stitution which she proposed to pro
mulgate immediately to her people",
and ai soon as this news was out, a
meeting of the prominent American
citizens was held in the office of W.
O. Smith, where all present agreed
thar-lt was the duty of every citizen
jtp resist the revolutionary encroach
ments of the queen, and a message
was sent to the cabinet to this effect.
' At the meeting of the Newcomers'
Club Mr. Castle told in detail, the im
portant events from the beginning of

Confirmatory of a report published
by this paper December 20, the Adver
tiser this morning publishes as a
special wireless dispatch from Wiish
iarton the following:
WASHINGTON D. C, January 19.
It is understood here by personal
friends of. President-elect Wilson that
he has practically made up his mind to
hold in abeyance any contemplated
change in the administration of Ha-
vfcii, the Philippines or Porto Rico un
til after a small commission of person
ally chosen investigators have visited
fbe islands, in question and after a
thorough study of conditions have re
ported to him their recommendations.
It is currently reported that this
commission will be headed by William
Jrnnings Bryan and that an Eastern,
Southern and a Western college pro
Irssor will constitute the other meni
A report that Bryan is to succeed
Covernor-General Forbes at Manila
has been going the rounds for som?
time here, but both Bryan and Wilson
are understood to have dismissed this
suggestion privately as mere gossip.
If President-elect Wilson names the
commission as reported, it will mean i bition
that no appointments affectine the ad- In the
the revolution until the final over
throw of the monarchy. Near the
end of the revolution attempts at inr
cendiarism on the part of the disorder
ly element of the city were described
by Mr. Castle, and hie told of an act
of loyalty on the part of a Portuguese
smuggler who stood guard over the
Castle home armed with a bowie knife
on the night the monarchy went out
"It was twenty years ago today,"
said Mr. Castle in conclusion, "that
the special committee, of which I was
a member, which was appointed to go
to Washington with the news, set sail,
for the mainland on the Claudine. The
incidents of that trip and the work of
that commission at Washington are,
full of. Interest and perhaps I may
talk to you about it in the fjuture."
Of the little band bt patriots, which,
twenty years ago this month, over
threw a monarchy, established a pro
visional government; and paved the'!
way for what Is' flow" the territory of
Hawaii, the following, according to
Mr. Castle, still survive:

of the Kuights, Tuesday evening Jan
arrested for drunkenness, was the ob
servation that George W. Paty of the
Anti-Saloon League made during a re
cent sixty-day trip to the coast. Mr.
Paty came back this week. Discussing
California and some observations he
made as to the strides of temperance
in the slate, he said:
Hie first impression on landing is
when you strike the line of auto bus
and hack drivers. The efforts of a
drowning man or the frantic attempts
of a person in a burning building to
escape are not to be compared with
it. However, the police are there to
see that the whole of the passengers
are not shanghaied to different parts
of the city against their will and peo
ple generally get where they want to
The next general observation on the

a few large potatoes, or other vege

observation was the absence of signs
