CI.AIMIMJ HAWAIIAN tAXDH.
A ClIICAGO WOMAN AMEtt THE ES
TATE OK QUEEN EMMA.
Ciiicaoo, Feb. 10. The fact was
announced to-day that a Chicago
lady claims an interest in large es
tates in the Hawaiian Islands and
, 1ms retained a Chicago law linn to
prosecute her claim. It is based on
her blood relationship to John
Young, who married into th'e royal
family of the islands, becoming
Governor of Hawaii and grandfather
of the late Queen Kmma. About
the year 1780, John Young, boat
swain of the ship Eleanor, Captain
Mctcalf, sailed from Capo Cod. A
year later she dioppetl anchor at
Hawaii, and after trading witli the
natives for a few days she went to
Iiiui, another of the Hawaiian
group. While at anchor there two
native chiefs swam to the Eleanor
one night and stole a small boat
which lloated astern of the ship,
and in which was a sailor who had
fallen asleep. The chiefs pushed
the boat silently ashore, where they
murdered the sailor. They burned
the boat to obtain the nails in it,
which werf almost invaluable to
them for making fish-hooks. Capt.
Metcalf offered a leward for the re
turn of the sailor's body and any
part of the boat. This brought to
the vessel man' canoe loads of na
tives, bearing the remains of the
sailor and bringing produce for the
purpose of trade. Many came
through curiosity. Captain Met
calf gathered all the canoes on one
side of the vessel, and then suddenly
running out the guns, loaded with
grapeshot, bullets and nails, Jlred
upon the natives, killing and mangl
ing over 100 of them. The vessel
then sailed to Kcalakckua Bay, in
the island of Hawaii.
At this time a small schooner of
twenty-six tons, a consort of the
Eleanor, commanded by Captain
Metcalf's son and a crew of six
men, lay off the coast of Kauai,
trading with the natives. The crew
knew nothing of the massacre which
had occurred, but the natives did,
and they determined to have their
revenge. A high chief, Kameami
mokie, went on board the consort
with sovcral men, with apparently
peaceable- intentions. Watching their
opportunity they seized young Met
calf and threw him ovcrboatd, where
lie drowned. All the sailors but
one, named Henry Davis, were
killed with clubs. Davis was car
ried ashore, badly wounded, to be
burned as a sacrillce.
A day later the Eleanor sailed
from Karrakakooa bay, accidentally
leaving on shore John Young, the
boatswain. On discovering this
Captain Mctcalf stopped the vessel
a few miles from shore, where he
waited for two days, signaling for
Young, whom the natives had re
strained. Young and Oavis would
have been killed had it not been
that Kavanaeha, a high chic-fuss,
fell in love with Young, and by
intercession with the King saved the
lives of both sailors. Kavanaeha
was the most beautiful woman on
the island of Hawaii, and was the
admiration of the sailois who Tisited
Karrakakooa bay. .She was the only
daughter of Kelumaiki, the favorite
brother of the great King Kameha
meha I. John Young and Kavana
eha were soon married.
King Kamehameha appreciated
the superior talents of the white
men and made them high chiefs.
They taught the natives many tilings
and 60wcd the ued of Christianity
among them. When the navigator
Vancouver visited the island in 17f)!J
he was entertained by King Kameha
meha and John Young, who was
thou the King's chief counselor.
Young built the first house on the
island of Hawaii. Its rums are still
to be seen. It is of stone. Young
had no tools but a hatchet and a
wooden trowel. He made the door
with the hatchet, hewing it out of a
lioa tree slab. He whitewashed the
house with lime mado from white
coral fished from the sea. Iluie
Young, and Kavanaeha lived and
died, and here their daughter,
Fanny Kekclaokalani, was born.
In 1791 each island of the group
was a separate kingdom. About
this time Kamehameha made war on
the other islands and erentually
, conquered nil of them, becoming the
first King of the Sandwich Islands.
In these wars he was greatly aided
by Young, by the firearms and the
military Instruction he had received
from Vancouver, and by the vessel
taken from Metcalf's son. King
, Kamehameha died on May 8, 1819,
in the presence of John Young and
all his chiefs. He was succeeded
by his brother. John Young died
( in 18JJ5 at an advanced age, leaving
to his daughter an immense fortune
in lauds and cattle.
. Thu last descendant of Kameha
meha, Queen Emma Kaleleonalaui,
llied last April, leaving no issue.
Slio was tho laughter of Fanny
Young Kvkelfioknlanl, who was tho
daughter of Kaoanaelm and John
Young. Queen Emma was born in
Honolulu in 1830. She married Ka
meliainchn IV., and on hi dcatli
she became Queen. From tho oilier
branch of John Young's family tho
living descendants come from Pnr
niclia Crane, who was the daughter
of John Young's sister. Mis. Cinuc
died on Novemder 0, 1883, aged 92
years. She was born in Massachu
setts. Her first husband was Charles
Adams. She was a warm, personal
friend of Cardinal McCloskey. Airs.

Archbishop Croke was reported
as approving of the scheme to buy
out the Irish landlords. The Arch
bishop believes that the rental of the
whole of Ireland is under 7,000,
000, and fuithcr that as the Irish
tenantry will not accept the scheme
of giving the landloids anything like
twenty years' rent for purchase, the
estimate, he thinks, of 100,000,000
is too high. He believes that the
present Imperial expenditure in
Ireland of -1,000,000 is ample to
meet the interest on the funds re
quired for the purchase of land.
The Irish leaders do not ask for
confiscation, only fair play. They
do not dieam of separating from
Robert Giffcn. statistician to the
Board of Trade, at a dinner of the
Political Economy Club recently,
explained in detail his plan for
transferring the agricultural lands
of Ireland to the peasant farmers,
and for compensating the present
owners. It proposes that the Im
perial Government shall buy out
every landlord in Ireland, giving
him consols at par, equal in nominal
amount to twenty years' purchase
of the present judicial rents. The
land is then to be given free to the
present occupants, subject only to a
rent tax of one-half or two-thirds
of the present judicial rents, pay
able to the local government of
Ireland. The scheme contemplates
the use of the Imperial credit to the
extent of 100,000,000, but the
Exchequer will be relieved of the
cost of governing Ireland, which
amounts to about as much as the
interest on the above sum, and
Giffen declares the plan, if correctly
worked, will cost nobody a shilling.
John Morley, Chief Secretary for
Ireland, speaking at Newcastle, said
he would never propose that the
military garrisons be removed from

the minority to be placed at the
