The followin(r in n chapter from Uom
miiwioner Blount's report, supplement

jng by the Advertiser. The .erie. will
b continued, alternately, by both the
Star and its morning contemporary :
Honolulu, H. 1., April 2. ISM,
Sir : On the 7th Inst, the Alameda
reached this place. Among its pas
sengers were llr. William Shaw Htiwen
and Mr. Harold M. Sewall. The San
Francisco papers announced thai they
had refused to say that they were not
joint commissioners with myself to
Honolulu. The former represented him
self to me as a correspondent of the New
York Hror'. and paid he would be glad
to give me any information lie could
gather here. Thinking it a mere mat
ter of courtesy, I thanked him. On
Sunday, the Kith I tilt, I was out walk
ing and met him on the street, riding in
a buggy. He left his buggy in the
hands of his friend, Mr. Sewall, and
joined me in a walk of some length.
Before it was concluded he said to me
that he and Paul Neumann were ar
ranging a meeting between President
Dole and the Queen, the object being to
pay her a sum of money in considera
tion of her formal abdication to the
throne and lending her influence to the
Provisional Government will, a view to
annexation to the United States. He
repeated this statement frequ utly. at
intervals, to which I made no reponse.
Finally he asked me if I did not think
it would simplify the situation very
much here and facilitate annexation.
Suspecting that my answer was designed
to be used to induce the Queen to
yield to solicitations to abdicate, I re
plied. "I have nothing to say on this
subject." Dr. Bowen said : "I did not
ask you offieially, butBimply in a private
way." I responded : "I am here as a
Commissioner of the United States and
must decline to converse with you on
The next morning early I had an in
terview with President Dole. I told him
that I had seen in the San Francisco
newspapers intimations that Dr. Bowen
and Mr. Sewall were here as representa
tive of the President of the United
States ; that the former told me that he
had arranged to bring him and the
Queen together on that morning ; that
I desired to say to him that neither Dr.
Bowen nor Mr. Sewall, nor any other
person, was authorized to act for the
Government in that or any other mat
ter relating to the present condition of
affairs in the Islands save myself ; that
I did not know absolutely that these
two gentlemen had claimed to have
such authority. He replied that he had
been informed that they were here
representing the Government. He did
not give his authority.
He said that there had been some ap
proaches from the Queen's side with
propositions of settlement ; that he had
responded : "I will consider any rea
I told him I would not permit the
Government of the United States to be
represented as having any wish in the
matter of any negotiations between the
Queen and the Provisional Government.
He asked if 1 would be willing to
authorize the statement that I believed
it would simplify the situation, I re
plied that I was not willing to do this,
'hat I was not here to interfere with the
;nions of any class of persons,
'nee this interview with President
I heard that Dr. Bowen, when
cd by newspaper people if he repre
sented the President of the United
States, declined to answer, saying that
all would be revealed hereafter.
He is representing himself in various
quarters us an intimate friend of the
President. I can but think that these
statements are made to create the tin-
gression that he is here authorized to
ring about negotiations for a settle
ment between the Queen and the Pro
On the day before yesterday Dr.
Bowen came over to my table to say
that a meeting between the Queen and
Dole had occurred and terms were
agreed upon. I said I did not care for
him to talk with me on that subject.
On the 2ist inst. Mr. Claus Spreckels
called to see me. He said that he sus
pected that there was an effort at nego
tiation between the Queen and the Pro
visional Government, and that he had
urged the Queen to withdraw her power
of attorney (IncloBUre No. 1) which Mr.
SpreckeU says was derived through the
agency of Mr. Samuel Parker, the last
secretary of foreign affairs. He told me
that Paul Neumann would leave for
Washington by the next steamer, under
pretense that he was going to the
United States and from there to Japan.
How much or how little Mr. Spreckels
knows about this matter X uni unable to
say, as I do not know how to estimate
him, never having met him before. He
promised to see me again before the
mail leaves for the United States on
next Wednesday and give me such in
formation aa he could acquire in the
I believe that Dr. Bowen, Mr. Sewall,
and Mr. Neumann have pretended that
the former knew the opinions of Mr.
, Cleveland and assured the Queen that
annexation would take place, and that
she had better come to terms at once.
Mr. Neumann leaves here on the next
steamer, probably with a power to act
for the Queen, with authority derived
from her out of the6e circumstances.
The question occurs to my mind
whether, if the United States desired
the adjustment as probably agreed on,
it had better not be accomplished
through its representative here, either
through myself or the successor of Mr.
Stevens as Minister here, that assurance
might be had that the action of the Gov
ernment was free from any suspicion of
indirection in the transaction.
Mr. Paul Neumann is generally re
garded here as a bright, plausible,
unscrupulous person. Permit me to
suggest that if the Administration
should entertain any proposition from
Mr. Neumann in connection with a con
tract between the Queen and the Provi
sional Government in the matter of her
abdication, the consummation of it is
surrounded by so many circumstances
indicating that the Government of the
United States has been made to appear
to the Queen as favorine such action on
her part that it would be far better to
decline to entertain anything from Mr.
Neumann, but for the Government to
accomplish its purpose in. a more direct
manner. If such an adjustment is desir
able, instructions to the American rep
retentative here to endeavor to bring
about such an arrangement would be a
much more honorable course on the
part of the United States.
The representatives of the Provisional
Government are eonscious that the
movement inaugurated on the 14th of
January last for the dethronement of
the Queen and annexation to the United
States is a much more desperate one than
tliey then realized.
The white race, or what may be
i termed the Reform party, constitute the
J intelligence and own most of the prop
i erty in these Islands and are desperately
eager to he a part of the United States
on any terms rather than take the
chances of being subjected to the con
trol of the natives. With them me can
dictate any terms. The feeling of the
natives is that while they do not want
annexation, if the United States does it
will be accomplished, and they will ac
quiesce. The situation is so completely
Under our control that I should regret
to see Mr. Neumann's agency in the
matter of abdication of the Queen, with
his connection with Dr. Bowen and
others and the attendant circumstances,
recognized by the Government. You
will reodily understand that this is not
Intended as impertinence, but only as a
Since writing the foregoing portion of
my letter relating to attempts to retire
sent the views of the President ol the
United States in connection with the
subject of an agreement hetween ex
Queen Mlitiokalmii and the Provisional
Government, I have deemed it proper
to have an interview with the former in
order to understand, rh fnr as I might,
from her whether nnv npg nations had
been authorized by her. and if so, bow
far they had gone. Before doing so, 1
called on President Dole and informed
him of my purpose to see her in connec
tion with this subject, stating to him
that I was net willing- that persons
should make fraudulent representations
to ner as to mat matter. 1 told Bin
that I had abstained from seeing her
lest my visit might he construed in a
way to produce disorders, but now I felt
all danger of this had passed. He con
curred in my views aa to the propriety of
my calling, if 1 saw fit to do so.
I said to the ex-Oueen that I had been
informed thnt certain persons had
sought to impress hpr with the idea that
the President desired some such adjust
ment as indicated to be made ; that 1
wished to say that no penon was author
ized by the President nor by myself to
place the Government of the United
Slates in such an attitude; that, while I
would interpose no objection to such
negotiation, I wanted her to know that
whatever she did in the matter was free
from any moral influence from the Gov
ernment of the United States. I further
said to her that I desired to be able to
inform my Government whether sho
had been encaged in such negotiations
or contemplated them, or whether any
body was authorized to act for her in
any such matter: that I wished the in
formation simply to put the Govern
ment at Washington in possession of
the true state of facts.
To be continued to morrow.
A UATHF.Kimi AT LITTLK HKTER
An Alleged Hclieme to NeWe Hllo Kiifl
F..tmbli.h a New Throne for pi
Judging from the rumors afloat this
morning the royalists have about given
up the idea of any further assistance from
Cleveland and are proceeding upon the
principal that the Almighty helps those
only who help themselves. After re
viewing the situation they have come to
the conclusion, so it is said, that any
effort to upset the Provisional Govern
ment on the island of Oahu would be
futile, and hence they have turned their
attention elsewhere. The weird stoiy
goes among them that Hilo is
to be a basis of restoration
procedures. The principal buildings
there are to be seized and fortified and
the ex-royal standard is to be raised.
The ex-Queen is to give her personal
time and attention to raising an army of
natives if Bhe can get away from Ho
nolulu in the meantime which, after
being properly disciplined and armed,
under the command of Chas. B. Wilson,
are to be brought over here to sweep the
Provisional Government from the face
of the earth. This scheme is to be run,
not only for the benefit of Mrs. Dominis.
but for that of Cornwell, Campbell,
Spreckels and others who are suid to
There was a gathering of Royalists at
Little Peterson's house yesterday fore
noon, at which there were present be
sides Peterson and Creighton, W. H.
Cornwell, John Bowler and others, and
the above plot is supposed to have ema
nated from that meeting.
MUTINY IN THE MOUTH SEAS.
Ilatalls of tha Trial of the llr Who
Seized llie Miierimlilti.
From a late issue of the C'it7 the fol
lowing details of the mutiny on the
schooner Nineroahiti, while within a
few days' sail of Ponapi, are gathered,
the account being taken from the testi
mony given at the recent trial of the
mutineers in Brest : On the night the
Koriques seized the schooner Joseph
Rorique took the watch from 8 o'clock
till midnight. He was joined by his
brother, and the murderous work at
once begun. The native captain, Zara,
was stretched upon the deck asleep, and
was shot and thrown overboard. The
report of the pistol and the splash of
the body of the captain as it was thrown
into the sea arousea the supercargo
uinson ami the cook Mirey. Koriques
called to Gibson to come on deck, and
he was also shot and thrown overboard.
A little later Mirey was summoned to
come up and obeyed, tremb tni; with
fear, begging for his life and promising
the brothers that he would keep the
secret ii ins uie was spared.
On the second day after the murder
Alexandre Rorique ordered Mirey to
give each of the five Kanakas forming
the crew a glass of rum, but only two
or thnii would touch the liquor and
they died on the same day. The remain
ing three fearing an attempt at poison
ing refused to partake of food for sev
eral days until at last thev became so
terrified by the threats of Roriqae that
they jumped overboard and were
On the arrival of the vessel at Ponapi
the Rorique brothers and Mirey, under
changed names, went to a tavern for
dinner, where Mirey, durine the tem
porary absence of the murderers, begged
the innkeeper to conduct him to the
Governor. Before this could be done
the brothers returned and ordered Mirey
aboard the vessel. He refused to obey
and on their attempting to force him
the guard was called and Mirey de
nounced the Roriques as murderers.
All three were arrested and after Mirey 's
confession had been heard they were all
turned over to the French authorities
and forwarded to Brest for trial.
All the Clinruheu Were Well Attended
Christmas services at the various
churches yesterday were numerous, ap
propriate and well attended. At St.
Andrew's cathedral the day commenced
with a celebration of the Holy Com
munion by both congregations, one at
5:30 and the other at 0:30 a. in. At 9:30
there was a full choral service for the
Second Congregation, followed at 1 1
o'clock by a similar one for the Bishop's.
The Moral decorations were magnificent
and the sin ing grand, especially at the
services of Dr. Mackintosh's congrega
tion. Christmas services were also held al
the Central Union and Catholic churches
and at the Chinese and Japanese mis
sious. The two latter, together with
the Portuguese mission, held Christmas
celebrations on Saturday evening.

Editor Star: When Dr. Trousseau,
in his statement to Blount and letter to
NordhofT says that "meetings were held
ot Mr. Stevens' houBe in which the pos

discussed," and that "prominent at
these meetings were the Chief Justice,

I am concerned, that which is untrue.

that of Dr. Trousseau, adding the ox
pression that the persons named were
so managing as to "save their precious
carcasses." Mr. Gulick will be pleased

1892, and for which attempts the ai rests
for treason were made spring before last.
For even defending those treason cases
in court I found myself the subject of
harsh criticism from many persons who
are now staunch Government men and
Messrs. Blount and NordhofT have
fallen into the absurd but grave error,

At a recent meeting of the Presbyteri
an Ministerial Union of San Francisco,
Rev. Thomas Eraser delivered a long
address upon the Hawaiian Islands.
Though tin old Cahfornian and well
known in the State, he spent some
time recently in the Islands, return ing
to his home only a couple of months
ago. lo illustrate the descriptive
portion of his address he made free
use of a map of the Islands, kindly
loanea lo nun nv Mr. WUuer
The reverend gentleman in the course
of his remarks said the entire group of
islands extends along a line 400 miles in
extent, the eight that are inhabited em
bracing an area of 6700 miles. Hawaii,
or Owyhee, which gives the name to
the entire group, is much larger in ex
tent than all the rest put together. His
description of Manna Liu, the famous
volcano, which is one of the chief nat
ural features of this island, was highly
interesting. What he had to say of the
leper colony on Molokai was perhaps of
tqual interest, though of ,uite a differ
ent character. On Maui, where he
spent some time supplying the pulpit of
one of the churches there, is the lurgest
sugar plantation in the world, owned by
II. P. Baldwin, a son of one of the mis
sionaries who went to the islands in
1880. Oahu is of course now the lead
ing island in importance, the capital,
Honolulu, which is located upon it,
bearing much the same relation to the
country that Paris does to France, the
controlling influences centering prin
The populution in 1777, the year of
Captain Cook's discovery, was estimated
at eoUiUW, w hen the missionaries came
in 1H20 they found it but 2.r0,000, and
now it is only 90,000. The native Ha
waiian or Kanakas are in number less
than 30,000, and even this is steadily
diminishing, The wealth is largely in
the hands of Americans and their chil
dren, the descendants of the missionaries
figuring largely in this connection.
Or. Eraser thinks a great mistake
was made by the withdrawal of the
missionaries in lSriO, thus leaving the
work of evangelizing the natives chiefly
in the hands of preachers and teachers
from among themselves. Such with
drawal, he believes, should have been
deferred till a later period. Speaking
of the ruinously demoralizing influence
upon the natives exerted by the low
class of sailors who used to visit the
country in such huge numbers, he said
he was told that us many as a hundred
whaling vessels had been seen from a
given point nt one ti i.e.
Dr. Eraser has an exalted opinion of
the man now in charge of alfairs at
Honolulu, and thinks the present GrOV
eminent is far the but the country has
ever had. He believes that President
Cleveland and Secretary lirusham have
made a serious mistake in the policy
they have been pursuing with reference
to the (iovernment, for he feels con
fident that it will stand and that annex
ation will yet become an accomplished
fact. This he regurds as an inevitable
incident to the working out of the
manifest destiny of the Anglo-Saxon
race and the spread ot Christianity
throughout the world.

sembly Rev. Junies Woodworth was to
