WHO KILLED COCK ROBIN ?
One of the royalist prints is again
exerting itself to prove that the United
States forces overthrew the Queen,
saying that a letter exists which shows
actually that Minister Stevens re
cognized the new government "three
minutes" before Mr. Dole and his
triumphant party entered the doors of
the Hawaiian Capitol. In another
place the same paper charges that an
hour and a half or two hours after that
event had taken place, the Minister
notified Sam Parker and others that he
had recognized the Dole administration
Inasmuch as the "three minute stay
belongs exclusively to the antics of
opera bouffe journalism and the other
tale might be true as gospel and yet
not prove the slightest participancy of
the United States in the royal over
throw, it is hard to deal with the
diatribe with any degree of seriousness,
Still for the sake of historical accuracy
the Star would like to ask the royalist
papers to explain a few points which
are not yet clear although this paper
has once before brought them to their
attention. To proceed :
If the American marines overthrew
the Queen why did she not say so in
her official protest of January 17th?
a protest which covered about every
thing else. The only acts done against
herself and her authority at that time,
of which she and her ministers com
plained, were those of "certain persons
claiming to have established a Prov
sional government. Ihese certain
persons she specified in a postscript as
"S. B. Dole Esq., and others compos
ing the Provisional government." The
sole references the ex sovereign made
to "American interference " were in the
clause relating to the troops having
landed (a proceeding which was in no
sense an act of war any more than was
the landing in Alexandria of American
marines during the bombardment of the
that city by the British fleet) and in the
assertion that Minister Stevens had de
clared that he would support the Pro
visional authority. It was not even hint
ed in the proclamation that he had said
this in advance of the institution of the
new regime, an idea which appears to
have been a mere afterthought of those
having the royal case in charge. It
may be added that since that time no
scrap of written or oral evidence
which could pass muster in a court of
law has been found to implicate Minis
ter Stevens in the overthrow of Liliuo-
kalani, though it can be clearly proved
that he refused to use hi 1 troops for
anything except the protection ot Amer
ican interests until such time as the Pro
visional forces had taken full control of
the military and civil belongings of the
Now if the royalist papers can show-
how it came about that Liliuokalani
forgot to mention that the American
forces had coerced her and allegeG
instead that the Provisional author
ities were guilty of the overt acts;
if they can show any international
or other law which makes the landing
of foreign troops to protect foreign life
and property during a revolt an act of
coercion against the local authorities;
if they can prove by an iten of sound
evidence that Minister Stevens con
nived at the revolution or gave it
military support before it had won its
own way to power why then they
will have a case to bring before the
United States authorities. Until then
they may as well retire, with their be'
draggled plumes, from the field of rev
ONE INTERVIEW ONLY.
In our last night's issue we used the
following words in a leader entitled,
"What of the Queen ?"
"Certainly, her right to treat with a
foreign envoy, has not been denied,
as witness her unhindered interviews
with Commissioner Blount."
We have since learned upon good
authority that Mr. Blount has had no
interviews with the ex Queen, except
one, which occurred with the full
knowledge of the government and
without any objection on its part. We
cheerfully make this correction, and
regret any unfavorable impressions
which may have been made by the
publication of the paragraph referred
to. At the same time we iiiikI mil
public notice to the fact that the'
tnu naa imu 11 uiu LA-vuctii vun iiiu
United States' Commissioner, does not
lessen the force of the Si au's preposi
tion that had Mrs. Dominis been de
ported, she would not be in a position
now to trouble the official ear of any
envoy with her alleged royal claims
It lus become a proverb in the
newspaper guild that the New York
Herald always turns up on the de
feated side of every national issue.
That journal, while conceded to be the
most expeit American news gatherer,
has nevi r of late years shown capacity
to judge public sentiment in the United
States, nor to gauge the current of
politics there. The reason for this is
that its editor lives abroad and guides
the policy of the Herald by ciblc.
He knows nothing of American opinion
and cares less. In the annexation
matter he simply compels his paper to
take an English view of it, and as a
result the Herald is running counter to
the m vailing sentiment in its own
country, and will find itself as usual
with the " party of the extreme left."
While the resolutions of regret over
the denh of Cant. Gilbert C. Wiltse
were in excellent time and taste, the
services of that commander here ought
to receive more enduring and public
recognition than that which obtains in
a legislative minute. The name of the
English sailor who restored the Hawai
ian flag, fifty years ago, was given by a
grateful monarchy to a public square of
Honolulu. With equal propriety some
road, street cr elevation might be christ
ened Wiltse in honor of the man who,
with Minister Stevens, raised the Amer
ican flag over the Hawaiian group.
1 ne least that should be d mc is to
have an inscribed tablet or a bust
placed in the Government building.

mosquitoes and other insects; where
they abound leprosy is endemic.

LENZ THE CYCLIST.
He Has a Rough Time of it in the Chi
Since Lenz the bicyclist was here
Honolulu people have watched his
globe encircling journey with much
interest. 1 he Oceanic brums particu
lars of an attack which was made upon
him near Ichang. The Chinese there,
in spite of the fact that the wheelman
had a soldier as an escort, assaulted
him, men and women coming upon
him from the rear and from all sidr-s. !
"Strike! Strike! Kill! Kill!" was
the cry taken up from the mob in rear, 1
and passed along from field to field far ,
quicker than the rider could cover the
distance, riding for dear life though he
was. The laborers suddenly looking'
up, as this cry reached their ears, be
held a sight well calculated to rouse
their worst superstitions, in the shape
ol a foreign devil literally flying over
their country on a hellish contrivance
of glittering wheels and pumping legs.
It was us if the thing had dropped
straight out of the sky; so with inflamed
passions they d trted towards the path
with uplifted hoes, and thus heading it
off waited to deliver a swinging blow as
it passed as they would have awaited
some wild beast. Meantime Mr. Lenz
pressed on, thinking it more prudent
to run this murderous gauntlet than be
surrounded hy a howling crowd, eager
for the 1)1 r d of a flying devil. He
dodged this blow, charged that man,
and besides a knock or two on the
knapsack on his back, and some bad
bruises on his machine, was doing
wonderfully well; until, he found him
self suddenly confronted with an em
bankment, about f rty feet high,
whose crest was crowned with about
one hundred and fifty excited China
men, awaiting his arrival with hoe and
bamboo. He was now encircled, so
got off his machine and walked for
ward to the embankment to meet his
The mob yelled furiously as he ad
vanced, and on arriving close enough
one of the leaders, an old man, aimed
a murderous blow, with a hoe, at the
head of the cyclist, which would have
cleft his skull and finished the business
had not Mr. Lenz dodged his head and
received the blow on its side, glancing
off to his car and shoulder, but partly
broken by the head of the hoe falling
on the top of his knapsack, then fol
lowed a shower of b ws and stones,
The machine was wrested from its own
er and the spokes hooked out, and vari
ous parts broken and damaged. Get
ting out of the thick of his assailants
Mr. Lenzmadctowaidsa few of a better-
looking class of natives who were hold
ing aloof in rear and apparently better
disposed, and to these he appealed by
gesture to intercede and give him a
hearing. In this he succeeded, and
the mob was induced by these better
class Chinamen to desist and
listen. The machinist than p. eked
ui) his machine again just as the out
distanced mob came up in rear, and
others closed in from all sides. Thus
entirely surrounded this single foreignei
surely in one of the lightest.of tight
nxes explained his machine hy gesti
culation, and played some funny tricks
with it, until he succeeded in melting
the awe-stirken and solid angry teccs
around him and caused laughter to rip
pie over them, which he eventually
turned into peals of laughter by in
creased fooling. A spell of this and he
made motions to be allowed to proceed,
and the better-class natives interceding
for him the circle opened and he was
allowed to cu; so he descended the
opposite side of the embaikment and
continued his journey again; to the in
tense amusement of his late assailants
the assembled spectators. Pushing
on a mile or two not now pursued by
the shout ol "Strike 1" or "Kid ! he
found the natives less hostile and so
put up at an inn, at a little hamlet a
few miles distant from the place of the
encounter, to await his soldier; who
presently arrived badly bruised and
beaten and relieved of every article of
value from his person.
