and his father moved to ranching
1 at Makawao. After completing Ins
studies in 1875 he was a teacher
l under the Board of Education at
Honuaula, until 18K0 when he was
elected to the Legislature from the
District of Wailuku, Maui, and
subsequently went to Italy to study
in the military academies and a
vear later was admitted to the
I Royal Military at Turin. In 1885
he graduated from the academy and
was promoted to sub-lieuteuant of
artillery. Then he entered the
Royal Application School for En
gineer and Artillery Officers. While
he was taking the last course in
this school as an artillery officer he
was recalled by the Hawaiian Gov
eminent. That was in the year
1887. He was just married to a
young lady of the noble house of
Colonna di Stigliano. Her name
was Siguorinu Gina Sobrero. She
accompanied him and in 1888 they
moved to San Francisco, where Mr.
Wilcox was employed as a surveyor
and his wife gave lessons in French
and Italian. Wilcox came back to
Honolulu in 1889, and his wife re
turned to Italy.
In the morning ot July 30, 1889,
Mr. Wilcox led a body of native
revolutionists and succeeded in oc
cupying the grounds of the "Iolani
Palace," now the executive Build
ing, but by evening he became a
prisoner and was charged with high
treason by the government, but his
1 countrymen, as jurymen, discharged
him. In 1890, he was elected to
the Legislature from Honolulu as
one of the representatives. In 1892
Mr. Wilcox was again elected to
the Legislature as leader of the
In iSo";. he led the Diamond
Head revolution against the Pro
1 visional Government. After two
weeks of revolution he was cap
i tured, court-martialed and sentenced
j to death. Mr. Dole commuted the
I sentence to 35 years imprisonment
I at hard labor and Sio.ooo fine. In
1 January, 1896, he was given a con
ditional pardon and in 1898 Presi
dent Dole gave him a full pardon.
Vhile in prison in 1895, Pope
Leo XIII granted to his wife an
1 aiituillation of the marriage; also
the Civil Court of Italy. The
Italian Consul and the Catholic
1 Bishop of Honolulu confirmed this
'action and in 1896, Mr. Wilcox was
again married to Mrs. Theresa
Cartwright, a Hawaiian lady, who
I has become a well known figure in
I Hawaiian politics.
1 After a hard fought campaign on
Nov. 6, 1900, he was elected by the
Independent Heme Rule party Ha
waii's first Delegate to Congress,
defeating Sam Parker and Prince
David Kawauauakoa. He worked
hard as delegate while in Washing
ton. In 1902 he was again a candidate
for Delegate but was defeated by
Prince Kalauiauaole. He returned
to Washington to finish out his
term, but was very ill most of the
time, and on his return this year
he was but a shadow of his former

sition of the so-called fruit trust.
The Territorial Board of Agricul
ture some time ago authorized the
expenditure of 500 by Director
Smith for Bluefields cuttings, as it

in the Islands. The Bluefields
bring a much higher price in San
Francisco than the China banana,
which is the variety exported from
Hawaii. It has been demonstrated
that the Bluefields will grow here
and also that it is much hardier and
requires less care in shipping to the
The cuttings of the shipment of
which Jared G. Smith has been
given notice were procured by the
Department of Agriculture from
Costa Rica. Some doubt was ex
pressed in a recent letter from
Washington as to the ability of the
department to secure cuttings for
Hawaii. It has been represented
that the Boston Fruit Company not
only had a monopoly on all the
Bluefields banana plantations but
also controlled the steamship lines
which carried the fruit to the coas-t.
The fruit "trust" also did not relish
the idea ot the Hawaiian growers
competing with it in the American
market, and for that reason it was
thought to be almost impossible to
secure cuttings from the region it
controlled. The shipment from
Costa Rica, however, disposes of all
difficulties, and an ample supply is
now said to be assured. The cut
tings are furnished without expense
further than the cost of transporta
tion, and this expense will be at a
minimum, as the plants arc shipped
by the War Department and will
come through Depot Quartermaster
Williamson. Whether on a trans
port or not is not certain, although
all Federal shipments are made
through the quartermaster's depart
ment. Director Smith stated yesterday
that there would be no general ex
perimenting with the cuttings which
he is to receive from Costa Rica.
For the first year or so the attention
of the department will be devoted
exclusively to their propagation in
order that an ample supply of plants
may be assured for future experi )
