THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1913.
Eye Witness Says Bomb Story is
Wrong No Tank Large
Over his own signature, Mr. Jas.
.N. K. Keola, writes the Maui
Nliws regarding the reference
'inadetojas. Hay Wodehousc in
'this paper last week. No intention
of suggesting that Robert Wilcox
was a coward was dreamt of. Any
man would run for cover if bombs
were being thrown about. How
ever, Mr. Keola declares that Wil
cox was not in a bomb-proof tank,
so that ends it.
Your Honolulu correspondent in
last Saturday's issue stated inter
alia that the late James Hay Wode
house, during the Wilcox riot of
1889 threw sticks of dynamite from
the Haalelea I,awu to the Bunga
low on Hale Akala (Pink House),
across the street, thereby driving
out the late rebel leader Robert
W. Wilcox, who ran and hid him
self in a gasoline tank. Your cor
respondent has evidently heard
these untruthful stories concerning
the late Home Rule delegate to
Washington around Honolulu
street corners, for surely he did
not obtain them from reliable
While these unfounded stories
amuse the idiotic, yet they never
theless cast a slur on the dead,
whom Mark Anthony of old said:
"The good is off interred with
their bones. The evil lives after
them." In this case there's no
evil, liuwcvci i iui lucsi; oiuia uvi;i
The late Robt. Wilcox was a
native son of Maui and was the
elder brother of County Auditor
. Chas. Wilcox. I knew him well.
' As an officer under the monarchy
in those troublous times prior to
1889, I can say emphatically that
Robt. Wilcox was no coward.
' During 1887, and for several weeks
during the Reform movement
which eventually resulted in the
promulgation of the Reform Con
stitution replacing that of Kameha
meha V, I was an officer in charge
of loaded field pieces in the palace
grounds, with specific orders to fire
them if there were any attempt by
the outsiders to force their way in
to the palace grounds, which were
then surrounded by high stone
walls. The necessity did not arise
fortunately for all concerned. That
'was in 1887.
Mr. Wilcox and others were
then studying in Italy. They
were recalled by the Reform Gov
ernment. When Mr. Wilcox re
turned with rank as a lieutenant
in the Italian army, it was my
privilege with many others to take
more extended instructions in use
of artillery tactics. The volunteer
guards were soon disbanded. In
all his rebellious movements, how
ever, neither Wilcox nor any of his
accomplices ever asked me to join
them, for in all our discourses, I
was always against the idea that
Honolulu could be subdued by a
handful of men, which his various
. unsuccessful movements proved.
I was in Honolulu on that
memorable day in 1889, and saw
T him and others marched down to
the Police Station that night, and
heard the angry voices of the mob
JT ring out on that clear evening,
"Hang Him!" But Bob Wilcox
was never extricated from any
gasoline tank, for I doubt if there
J was any gasoline tank large enough
;; to hold him. The absurdity of the
scurrilous remarks ought to end
5 there. While Wilcox may have
been erratic and indesirect, yet
hevwas never a coward.
' Yours truly,
t J. N. K. KEOLA.
"History repeats itself," and the
latest proof of this is the extract
from a letter written by John I.
Stevens, United States Legation,
Honolulu, in September 1891 to
Secretary of State, James C. Blaine.
Most of the remarks might will
have been written in the present
"The repeal of the sugar duty
by the United States has struck the
principal material product of Ha
waii a very severe blow, and with
the most favorable estimate it now
looks as though bankruptcy must
be the inevitable fate of more or
less of the sugar-planting firms and
corporations. It is fair to state
that a large proportion of the liberal
profits of sugar-raising made under
the present treaty while the United
States maintained the sugar tariff
recently repealed has been expend
ed in starting new plantations, in
the building of expensive mills,
purchasing improved machinery
and securing expensive methods
and means of irrigation. It is
obvious Enough that no probable
legislation or treaties can give the
production of sugar here the pros
perity it has had in recent years.
Americans and the sons of Ameri
cans, who reside and have their
investments here will be driven to
California, to Washington and to
Oregon in the desire of benefitting
It is also becoming more and
more obvious that these islands are
to be of commanding importance
in the near future to the American
trade in the North Pacific and the
opening of the Nicaragua Canal
would make these islands a garden
with a population thrice its present
numbers, with taxable resources
enough to pay the expenses of
their government and institutions
and help to make Honolulu and
Pearl Harbor impregnable.
No thoughtful legislator or com
mercial agent can fail to see that
in the grand future now dawning
on the Pacific these islands will
be of immense importance to the

Tho Kahuluis scored in tho very

did the trick. Ho landed out a two

There was nothing doing in the
second but, in the third, Carroll again
connected with one of Bal's and
made another double, sacker, which
brought Viula over the plate. Score,
2 to 0, and Stars looking worried.
The fourth and fifth were not
productive of runs, but the sixth
was a terror, as the Kahuluis got
four men home and the Stars two.
This was followed up by the Kahu
luis making five in the seventh and
two in the eighth. That left tho
score at 13 to 2 and, as there was
no further scoring, the game ended
that way. The full score follows:

the homo team scored one run and
