HILu OPINION Oil
From (he llilo Jlecord, Auy fi.)
The insurrection of the last week
in Honolulu has taught us a lesson,
which we will do well to heed. Ru
mors of Wilcox's intentions have
been in circulation for several
weeks, especially among a portion
of our iiatiTts population. Aud our
Government paid no hoed thereto.
Tho affair, if it had been led by n
smarter man, might not have ended
as it did. To think that an armed
force of 150 men could march a mile
aud a half through the main street
of Honolulu, at 4 o'clock In the
morning, without even a notice from
the police force, supposed to be on
patrol all through the nieht, leads
to the suspicion that almost all of
the native population of that city
must have 'been knowing to the
"emeuto." What were the police
doing that no alarm was sounded till
after the rebels had made n lodg g
ment within the Palace walls? But
perhaps it is useless now to cry over
the "split milk," and only to ask
ourselves, what is the lesson to be
learned from the whole affair. One
thing is certain, the present Govern
ment havo learnt, and that is not to
lie back believing "that the Hawai
ians are not thinking much over the
situation." There is a feeling of
hitler hatred of the whole "Reform"
movement, among a small (ntid we
say "small" advisedly) portion of
the Ilawaiians. Before "Reform"
took place, the Hawaiian was led to
believe, that he was and should be
the "master of the situation." Now
he finds that it is only when quali
fied to act, can he fill any important
position. That simply because he is
a Hawaiian, does not bring him into
power, but that ho must prove him
self capable as well and this does
But we will say, throughout the
country districts, the incendiury and
treasonable utterances of such
shectB as the "Oiaio" do not find a
response among tho Ilawaiians as a
rule. When the news of this insur
rection reached us over tho wires
last Friday, among no persons was
it more heartily condemned than by
the Ilawaiians in our tdwn. It is a
matter of thanks to us here, that we
have but a small following of Bush
and Wilcox among our native Ila
waiians. But in Honolulu it is dif
ferent. There all the "discontents"
among the natives naturally gravi
tate and are there urged on by such
men as Poepoe, Wilcox, Boyd and
others, to just such acts as have
been done in Honolulu tho past
week. Now, what is to be done in
tins matter? What shall we do with
the leaders in it? We do not belief
in halfway measures. Let our Gov
ernment take hold of it without
gloves and sift it to the end. No
halfway measures. Strike wher
ever it may be necessary, even
if it be necessary to bring
high personages under the sen
tence. We feel for thoae who
were led into it, that they might be
let off easy, but to thoso who led
them on, aye, even to those who sit
in high places, that allowed it to be
done, let the severest penalty of the
law be meted out. It will not do
for this country to be subject to
such insurrections, every little while.
The injury done thereby to us
abroad is such that it will take
months, we might almost say years,
."We hope that the outcome of this
affair will be to unite all true citi
zens of Hawaii on the side of good
government. Coming as it has,
only a short time before our general
elections, next year, it should so
unite all classes, that we can be
able to send only such men to the
Legislature as are in favor of our
present form of Government. Once
more. If the Government is afraid
to try Wilcox, Boyd and ethers of
the insurrection, in Honolulu, let
them change the venue to Hawaii.
We believo we have here honest Ila
waiians, who will try the matter
fairly. And the whole country de
mands that the matter be dealt with
with a stiff hand.
The thanks of our townspeople
here in Ililo are tendered to Col. V.
V. Ashford and the Honolulu Rillcs,
aud all others who took part in the
fight so bravely and manfully. Ililo
could not be present, but; she is
willing to acknowledge her thanks
to those who were. We hear that
all our Ililo boys stepped right in
and did good work. Hilo's thanks
to Townsend, Loebcnstein, and D.
Howard and Rex. Hitchcock.

Yesterday shortly after noon the
U. S. S. Nipsic was floated into tho
cradle of tho Marine Railway, and
her hull being grasped by tho bilge
blocks was all ready for hauling up.
About half paBt two o'clock tho.
work of hauling up was commenced,
there being present on the various
boathousca and tho Mail wharf a
large number of people. Several
boats from the U. S. S. Alert were
off tho King's boathouse with ladios
aboard. The work of hauling on
proceeded slowly but surely, until
about half pa9t four o'clock sho was
in a safe position on the dock. Not
the slightest hitch occurred and
the work of hauling on was most cre
ditable to Messrs. Sorenson & Lylet
Some idea of the damage done to
the vessel in the hurricane at Apia
can now be obtained. Eighty-four
feet length of the keel is chafed
within six inches of the garboard
planking, while thirty-six feet length
is chafed within three inches. Part
of the garboard streak and dead
wood aft nro gone. The copper is
torn off in patches all over tho bot
tom. The rudder post is entirely
gone. The stern post is broken off
up to the bearing of tho propeller.
The blades of the latter are bcnt,but
an effort will be made to straighten
them, though a new propeller has
arrived for tho vessel. As much of
the keel will be left as can be.
Messrs. Sorenson & Lyle have al

Some weeks ago tho body of a
native woman was found in a pool
of water near Haiku. A coroner's
jury was empanelled and upon the
testimony of the Government physi
cian a verdict of death from some
cause other than drowning was
brought in by it. The woman had
a contused wound on the head pro
duced by some heavy blunt instru
ment that might have caused death.
It is well known that she had .fre
quent quarrels with her paramour,
aud one of theso occurred the day
before the body was found. No
one has been arrested and probably
never will be. Thus another myster
ious death and no investigation of
the circumstances leading to it.

The planting is about over and
another spell of dry weather has set
in, but hopes arc entertained that it
will not be of long duration.

incomparably tho Largest Debt of any Life Company in the world.
