titled to note as the starting point
of British naval expeditions to an

The cruisers Caroline, Hyacinth and
Kspiegle have all gone hence within
the past two or three years, under
scaled orders, returning shortly
with trophies in their log books re
presenting miniature j;ctns to be
added to the British crown. It is
surmised iu the Australian papers
that these Polynesian acquisitions
are being made to secure points of
vantage for guarding a British
Inter-Colonial Cable to be. This is
probably partially correct, but can
hardly cover the entire meaning of
these annexations. It does not re
quire a great stretch of the imagina
tion to see in this activity of acqui
sition a policy of wider significance
than the protection of a telegraph
cable that would not be the sole
means of communication between
the Mother Country and her Colo
nies in the Northern and Southern
Hemispheres. It looks rather as if
Great Britain sees the eagerness of
other European Powers for securing
footings in the Pacific and goes one
better. By acquiring all those petty
gwtipo-ena Jolot. ovttiu ot -k.:.l.
possess lagoons capable of being
made serviceable harbors she is
apparently placing a cordon of sen
tinels around every territory gained
by any other Power, which at the

ever advantages such may have for
offensive action toward British pos
sessions. JoliH Bull has a long head

LETTER FROM COL. ASHFORD.

tiser of August 28th publishes a
copied article on the proceedings of
July 30th without comment. In so
doing, it makes the article its own,
to the extent of giving the state
ments therein contained its editorial
sanction. Here it is:
THE LATE rt'ISISIMS.
Tim following remarks appear
H. V. Bulletin of August 10th :
It is a curious fact that Col. V. V.
Ashford, to whom Wilcox surrendered,
appeared as his lawyer. The mystery of
this revolutionary attempt Is ab ureal u
ever. The pintles back of It, who fur
nished the means, are unknown. Tin'
King has published a card indignantly
denying that he had anything todovritu
It. And Wilcox Mated yesterday that
when he .summoned Lieutenant l'niker
to .surrender the palace to him and he
refused, saying he had Instructions from
the King to hold It and let no one in, he
knew he was a doomed man, for his men
at once said, "We can't tight against the
King," and began to dm.-it. It Is very
remarkable, also, that no act of sym
pathy was bhown the conspirator?, dur
ing the whole period of the tight. The
natives .stood off us coldly from them,
to all appearances, as the white man or
the Chinaman. This, with the fact that
the rebellion was put down by the rc
hourres of the Government itself, with
out the activu participation of foreign
ers, .shows that the Government, Is
strongly Intrenched In its present posi
tion us a Government. This trial has
hi ought out the evidence that revolution
here without good cause i no easy
The reference to myself (in con
nection with the "mystery of the
revolutionary attempt") is worthy
the source from which the writer
evidently obtained his information
and derived his inspiration. He was
a resident, o.f only a few weeks iu
the kingdom, lllled the Fort street
church pulpit during the temporary
absence of Dr. Beckwith, and train
ed with a crowd who gather their
"facts" regarding armed conllicts
Hecond hand and at very long range.
if, to such men, and to the Rev, Mr.
Dwinell, their mouthpiece (who
Higns his name to the S. V. Bulletin
article), it looks "curious" that J
should have appeared in Court for
Robcit W. Wilcox, I tifck on what
principle of morals or of ethics?
To me it seemed, and seems,
purely a professional matter ; ami
no more a "curious fact" than it
was for Dr. Brodie, the Surgeon of
the Honolulu Utiles, to dress the
wounds of the wounded insurgents,
or than it would bo for Hev. Dwinell
(who as'I.understand it is an Amer
can) to.marry a couple of whom ono
was a Iloman Catholic, he being a
ProteBtftntror wo will say who had
been In the Confederate Army, As
a matter of personal feeling, I
thought, and think, that Wilcox was
entitled to all tke rights the law
gives under such circumstances. I
never saw him till his siirtcnder; nnd
his manly conduct on that occasion
was in very great contrast to that
of some of the "long range" in
formants of the Rev. Dwinell, who
were careful to keep out of cannon
shot of the Palace during the DOlli
of July, but who lined the streets,
and shouted "shoot him," "hang
him" etc., as he was marched an
unarmed and helpless prisoner to
the Police Station. The circum
stance of any fact being considered
"curious" by the Hev. Dwinell is
of Itself u very Insignificant matter,
and the only thing which gives it
significance in this case is (1) the
evident source of the Rev. gentle
man's information, and (2) the ab
solute untruthfulness of the article
in every material detail which could
form nnv reasonable basis of the
expressed opinion that there Is any
"mystery" whatever in the whole
First: "The parties back of it"
(the conspiracy) were well known
for mouths pi evious to July .'JOlli.
Probably the more prominent of
them successfully covered their
tracks, from a judicial standpoint:
but the fncts of the revolutionary
meetings were periodically reported
oltlcially, and in detail, to the gov
ernment. Secondly: Wilcox never made
such a statement as is attributed to
him at any time, or to any person,
up to the sailing of the steamer car
rying Mr. Dwinell's letter.
' Thirdly : Nothing can be further
from the truth than the statement
thaf'no act of sympathy was shown
the conspirators. The natives stood
off coldly from them." The fact is
that the sympathy openly expressed
by the native population as a whole
was intensely revolutionary. Sev
eral were arrested on the streets
during the day for barangueing
crowds of natives in seditious lan
guage. The attack on Schuman and
Greiir of the Hides, was from an
"outside" crowd of natives, and in
a number of instances during the
day, parlies of excited natives were
only prevented from entering the
palace enclosure to the relief of
their comrades by the actual and
forcible intervention of guards from
the Rilles. In slioit the great
danger from the first moment of the
conflict, lay in an attempted assault
or some kindred diversion from in
surgent sympathizers outside the
actual scene of operations; and to
meet this, the largest practicable
force of drilled men were held in re
serve, IU U UUllOtu-.t, 3UU 1 . ..U
Fourthly: "The rebellion was
put down by the lcsources of the
government itself, without the act
ive participation of foreigners."
The facts are these : Including ord
erlies, officers and staff, as well as
those who threw the bombs against
the bungalow, the actual number of
men who "stood behind guns that
day was lflfi, more than four-fifths
of whom were foreigners, owing no
allegiance to the country and having
no property interests therein to pro
tect. Of rtiese, 137 belonged to the
Honolulu Utiles, while :58 were ex
olllcers and ex-members of that
corps, all of whom turned out either
with, or under direction of, the com
manding officer. Of the twenty re
maining, classed as "citizens," only
six were government employes, and
most of this small number were on
hand ready for any service required,
before the now celebrated order is
sued for all "able-bodied men, etc.,"
inlhe government service to turnout.
As to the "resources" employed
(aside from the men), not more
than 20 of the riiles, and not a sin
gle cartridge used, belonged to, or
had been furnibhed by the govern
ment, who, on the Contrary, ex
pressly refused, up to and including
the very day preceding the out
break, to order any supplies of am
munition or additional arms for the
Hilles. When the danger had to be
met cartridges were hurriedly col
lected from every white man iu the
city who had any in hand ; and
most oflhose which were fired dur
ing the fore part of the day were re
loaded shells, which gave the men
much trouble by reason of misfits
from causes well known to rillcnicn,
liven then, wo ran nearly out of
ammunition, and would have done
so entirely but for having procured
10,000 rounds from the U. S. S.
Adams then lyiiig in port.
Although the organ may excuse
itself and its friends for throwing
principle to the dogs, and for the
sake of policy may assist in de
ceiving the American and British
people in order to avoid the effect
Alio truth might have on property
interests, is it not a suicidal policy
from a domestic point of view to
cry "peace, peace," when there is
no peace? Does the Advertiser dare
assert that the intensity of the
known political hostility of nt least a
largo minsrily of the voting popula
tionto say nothing of 20,000 odd
arms bearing non-voters of tho
kingdom leaves the government
prepared to cope with what may
come "with tho resources of the
government itself, etc?" Tho pro
position is absurd. The conditions
for defence against any kind of well
directed movement from within--even
a very weak one numerically
arc all against the government. It
was only by the rarest combination
of omissions of tho commonest
military precautions that the insur
rection of July JlOth came short of
the fullest success. And as wo are
no better prepared to-day (nor are
we. likely to be by any action of the
government) tlin'n on the morning
of that day, what Is there to hope
for but a repetition of the attempt
at whatever convenient time tho
other side may select?
Tho whole thing Is becoming
moiio'onous. The Government is
tUnl hand and foot by that abortion
of military legislation known as the
Militia Act, and much as they may
individually wish to act, are power
less, beyond a very limited area.
Where is the remedy for this?
Ceitainly not with Parliament for
this body will not meet for nearly a
year. And no matter what political
party is thru in power, (supposing
matters to run smoothly till that
time) the majority of the represent
atives will unquestionably be of the
same mind as the last, Legislature
on military matters: i. c., the abso
lute ignorance on the part of those
to the manor born of whatever
race of all the universally recog
nized laws of military necessity as a
protection instead of a menace,
would swamp, as it did in 1887-8,
any attempt to establish a well pro
visioned and effective volunteer
force at public expense ; and, more
over, the intervening' period gives
opportunities which may at any
lime be taken advantage of. If
this then is so, what next? Annexa
tion? A Protectorate? And, if
either, "under which King?"
It seems to mc that one or other
of these latter alternatives is the
certain result of the present diift of
matters unless the men of properly,
in their private capacities, at once
furnish to those few volunteers which
the present good-for-nothing militia
law does permit to exist, suitable
and safe amory accommodations a
building conveniently and strategic
ally situated, quickly reached from
all points, and easily defensible
against any assault of small arms.
This would weld together the pre
sent force and increase their effici
ency ten fold (1) by the actual
nhvsical multiplication of their
military strength, man for man, as
well as resulting in filling up every
company to its full legal limit: (2),
by convincing the volunteers that
the people who really have material
interests to defend arc favorably
disposed toward the only men who
in emergency are likely to help de
fend them: (3), by the preventive
effect such a course would at once
and cpnstantly exercise on such as
may nt any time contemplate a
movement similar to that of July
The extreme importance of the
subject of defence is, I believe, a
sullicient reason for the length of
ihit lMtpr 1 would Imve entirely
ignored the peisonal portion but lor
the fact of my position at the head
of the volunteers : and any reference
which on its face may smack of
politics is unavoidably resorted to
by reason of the necessary connec
tion with military matters, from the
stand of military necessity which 1
have always taken.
Voljjey V. AsiIKOItD.
THE TWO SERMONS.
Kditoii Bulletin: I was so com
pletely knocked out by yesterday's
Advertiser that I could not pull my
self together in lime for your evening
paper. The manner in which the
ten 'prominent members" of the
ministerial chaplain's congregation
rallied to his support was inspiring,
too touchingly pathetic for any
thing. And how magnificently "Kd. P.
C. A." came to their support. Let
me quote him : "We regret, from
want of space, (tho recording angel
must have dropped a tear right
there) to have to omit the prelimi
nary third part of the discourse.
We begin at the application of the
text and subject to our immediate
case." Whatever that last sentence
may mean I do not know. How
ever, this is quoted as a part ex
emplification of the old proverb
Charity covcrelh a mnltitude of
The exultant, ringing sentence-' 'a
cat may look nt a king, now"
that created the sensation of the
evening, has been blotted out.
Well, let it be so; but one cannot
but think that "out of the abund
ance of the heart the mouth spcak
oth." The political preacher and the
pot-house politician arc not so far
removed, the ono from the other, as
we might suppose. .Such a preacher
has feet of clay after all. My
opinion of this preacher best finds
expression in verse. Mother Goose,
a little altered, fits my mood:
ICnukeauofat on thn wall.
Katikeano hnd a gieat fall;
All the KlngVmcn uiiilfour-fccoio more
Could not fct KntiUenno as he sat be
fore. So much for tho second of- a se
ries of political sermons; but let us
have the first one published, not
garbled "from want of space."
Iu this sermon the Ministerial
chaplain explained, among other
things, the limitations of the law of
love. Not the law as given by
Christ of Galilee; but one which
the chaplain formulated to fit the
times, and the "prominent members
of his congregation," As I under
stood him the law of Jove draws a
line this side of the deceived and
deluded insurrectionists of the 80th
of July. The old law that demand
ed an "eye for an oyo and a tooth
for u tooth" fits their cases.
Tho impropriety of striving to in
fluence or prejudice a community
ftom whence a defendant's jury has
to he drawn, while cases arc pend
ing, did not seem to trouble the
chaplain. Possibly that other law,
sometimes called the Golden Rule,
has become void and of no effect.
Let it not bo understood that I am
troubled with any maudlin senti
ment in favor of evil doers. I sim
ply ask for fair play, and, as the
pulpit is not disposed to grant it,
sinners must stand in to secure it.
