THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1)15.

tinct island. There was a current
report lie understood, that it was
possible to wade across from Nit
hau to Lehua. He found of course
that there was a deep though liar
row channel between the two is
lands. Vancouver's third and final visit
to Kauai was in March, 1794, on
which occasion, however, he re
mained only four days. He suc
ceeded this time in making the
circuit of the island by way of the
windward side, noting the little is
land of Mokuaeae off Kilauea, the
Haualei Hav, and the striking pre
cipitous Napah region.
Arriving in Waimea he found
that renegade whites had done
much to disturb primitive condi-,
tions on the island by inciting the
natives to acts of vandalism, such
as the attempt to scuttle the Amer
ican Brig "Hancock'' under cov
er of darkness and the fomenting
of revolution against Ithe rule of
Kaeo. ' '
The . attempt to capture the
"Hancock" was thwarted by a
premature discovery, and the sedi
tious movement against the "con-
stituted authority speedily brought
" Kahekili to the scene. Kaeo was
dead with the consequent pacifica
tion of affair!.'.

Approaching from Oahu, hv a
rare coincidence he mt it fleet of
canoes laden with prisoners uml
bearing the news of a recent unsuc
cessful attempt at i isii; rectii!n
against the tyranny of Inauioo.
This revolt h a d been defe:iled
mainly through the aid of (lie
renegade whites resident among the
chiefs, whose f icility in the use of
fire arms gave them evtry advan
tage, Vancouver comments with satis
faction on one of the canoes of the
expedition,. bVi ft. long made from
a north west drift wood log cast up
on the shores of the island. The
natives had waited long in the
hope that a mate suitable tor a
double canoe mighthe found, but
must needs finally be satisfied with
the single one.
Instead of proceeding as usual
direct to Waimea he made the
land in the neighborhood of Wai
lua, and spent two davs in that
vicinity, but apparently without
going ashore yet in friendly inter
course with the people.
The next recorded voyager to
visit Kauai was Broughton who
had accompanied Vancouver i n
command o f the armed tender
"Chatham" and who now returned
in command of the British discov
ery ship "Providence" 400 tons.
Landing first at Kealakekua he
found that Kamehameha was' on
Oahu, whither Broughton proceed
ed to meet him. There, at Hono
' lulu, February, 1796, he found Ka
mehameha and his followers tnisy
iu the construction of a small ves
sel of 40 tons, and otherwise mak
ing extensive preparations' for the
conquest of Kauai. Nor did Ka
mehameba's ambitions terminate
with the conquest of Kauai; his
plans Were to go on to Bolabola
and other south sea islands, and
build up an extensive empire. He
had secured a large supply of mus
kets, ammunition, some small can
on and 16 European gunners.
Broughton did his best to dissuade
him from this career of conquest,
predicting that 'he would never
return from this ambitious venture
buf his well-meant advice was
Proceeding to Kauai which was
still considered the best place to
recruit, Broughton found that is
land rent with civil strife between
the adherents of the young Prince
Kaumualii, and those of Keawe,
Keawe was in possession of Wai
mea and assisted Broughton in se
curing the necessary water and
other supplies. Later Kaumualii
and party appeared on the scene,
whtreupon the Keawe party with
drew. Kaumualii spent sometime
aboard the vessel.
