Professor Henry Berger, master
of the Royal Hawaiian Hand, well
deserves the public ovation planned
for him this evening. The band is a
national institution one of the lust to
be thought of for abolishing or di
minishing in force on the score of
economy. It is known all over the
world from the reports of ollleial,
commercial and tourist visitors, as
one of the leading attractions of Ha
waii's capital. Nothing of an arti
ficial nature has done more singly to
make life in Honolulu pleasant to
natives and foreigners than the band.
What the band is, in strength and
ellleiency, and lias been these many
years, is due to the masterful skill of
Prof. Berger as an instructor and a
conductor. It is twenty 3 ears to-day
since Mr. Bergcr's arrival in Hono
lulu, and since that day he has con
ducted the national band in over
three thousand recorded concerts, be
sides numbers unrecorded in the
reignstof Kamehameha V. and Luna
lilo and some outside of Honolulu,
the following being the record :

Mr. Berger's arrival here dated
two years after the starting of the
Royal Hawaiian Military Band. The
first master was Mr. C. B. North
cott, who remained about a year,
being succeeded by Mr. F. Medina,
who also retired after a brief service.
Mr. Berger was selected from the
German army by the Prussiau Gov
ernment, at the solicitation of the
late Governor Dominis to obtain a
first-class leader. The new band
master, whose twentieth anniversary
is celebrated at this date, soon dis
played reraaikable tact in drilling
Hawaiians in musical numbers. His
original corps numbering a dozen or
so has been increased to a strength
of over thirty, and about a year
ago the band was equipped with
a full orchestral outfit, so that it now
performs as required with either class
of instruments complete. There had
always been a string detachment,
however, in the band, and the full
orchestral equipment is a develop-,
ment rattier than an innovation in its
career under Professor Berger. One
of the proudest incidents in the
band's history under its veteran mas
ter was its visit to San Francisco on
the occasion of the Knights Templar
Conclave in July, 1883. There was
a testimonial concert given to .the
bandmaster prior to his departure,
and he spent two weeks with the baud
in San Francisco. In the Knights
Templar procession the Hawaiian
Band was accorded the post of
honor, behind the Grand Master,
amongst twenty-seven bands. For
some years Mr. Berger gave regular
instructions to a brass bund formed
of the street Arabs detained in the
Reformatory school, bringing them
up to a standard that enabled them
to turn out ut public celebrations,
processions, etc. Some of those
boys are now among the bandsmen
of the Royal.
Professor Berger has doubtless
done more to promote and develop
music among Ilawaiiais than any
person who has ever lived. The
ovation that is assured him from the
community this evening is singular
in that there lias' not. been heard one
discordant or dissonant note with re
gaid to its fitness and propiicly as
an honor mote than deserved and
never more honorably earned.

Preliminary Hearing Before
TiiimsuA.Y, June 2.
' The Court opened at 10:10.
W. J. Sheldon, sworn in as iutcr
preter Hali:akai,a, sworn 1 work for the
Government cutting wood ; know de
fendant Wilcox but not Ash ford;
knot? defendants over there (names
several) ; attended one meeting at
Bipikanc's in evening; Lot Lane in
vited me there ; was told meeting was
for love of the land and of the Queen
and an equal Constitution ; a white
man spoke to me in English and it
was interpreted by Wilcox ; (looking
at Ashford) white man looked like
him ; was told to abide by the laws
of the league, whoever turned traitor
should die; took an oath to that,
holding hands all round, the foreign
er gave the oath, being ut tho head
of the circle; don't remember any
thing else said ; Wilcox spoke about
dividing men into squads, but not at
thai time, appointing a lieutenant to
each squad from the league ; there
was something said about getting a
new Constitution by Wilcox, just the
same as he has always said round
comers, that if wc couldn't tict this
Constitution changed perhaps we
would have to use guns ; something
was said about a demand to be made
of the Queen for a new Constitution ;
nothing was said about what would
be done if the Queen refused to grant
a new Constitution.
Q. Was anything said like these
Mr. Hartwell objected. When men
were ou trial for their lives on spoken
words, the attempt to get words out
of a witness in this way was repre
hensible. Q. (By Mr. Ro3a.) You don't
remember anything else said at that
Q. Are you telling the same thing
now you told me?
A. Yes; don't remember any
thing more than that Wilcox said if
we can't get this Constitution other
wise, we may have to use guns;
don't remember anything said about
the Queen in case she should decline ;
no person has been to see me since
yesterday with regard to my evi
Cross-examined This meeting was
some time over a mouth ago; was at
station three times about this mat
ter; first lime Nahoolewa, Marshal,
Deputy Marshal, one of the clerks
and a white man were there; the
clerk wore glasses, don't know if it
was Kenyou ; second time met Rosa
and third time Rosa ; no one told me
first time what I ought to say.
Pro.-ecution rests at 10:45.
Mr. Hartwell submitted and filed a
motion to dismiss the charge and
discharge the defendants without
day on the following grounds:
1. Because there is no evidence
presented which tends to show that
any of these defendants has been
guilty of any overt act of treason,
whereof he stands charged.
2. Because there is no evidence
presented which tends to show that
any of these defendants has by any
overt act plotted to delluone or des
iroy Her Majesty the Queen.
3. Because there is no evidence
presented which tends to show that
any of these defendants has attempt
ed to dethrone or destroy Her Maj
esty by doing any act towards com
mitting or in part execution of that
4. Because the most that can be
predicated of any of the evidence
presented is that it'migbt authorize
an inference that certain of the
defendants have been guilty of "a
mere preparation of the means of
committing the offense" of plotting
or attempting to dethrone or destroy
Her Majesty the Queen: "nothing
being done in execution of the at
tempt to commit the same," and by
ihu statute such preparation is de
clared to be "not an attempt to com
mit the same."
5. Because spoken words cannot
under the Hawaiian statute of trea
son, as well as under the Hawaiian
Constitution or 1887, constitute or
form the offense of treason, or con
stitute or form the offense of plot
ting or of attempting to plot to
dethrone or destroy Her Majesty the
0. Because a conspiracy to com
mit treason, if such conspiracy were
shown, or to do any other actdefined
as treason, is not of itself treason,
nor is it an overt act of treason.
7. Because an attempt to levy
war against the Quccd'b Government,
if any such attempt were shown, is
not treason nor is it an overt act of
8. Because there Is no evidence
tending to show that any of these
defendants has been a party to any
overt ucl in or towards procuring or
rising force, or putting himself in a
condition to use force either by being
present at such overt act or by pro
moting, uiding in, or being otherwise
accessory before the fact to the same.
Mr, Cri'ighton presumed there wus
a copy of the motion for tho prosecu
tion. Mr. Hartwell reminded Mr. Crelgli
ton that he hud telephoned to him
the previous night, asking if the pro
sedition was likely to clow this
morning, uud was given the impres
sion in reply that it us not, He
wuj ywy,JiOTr) Uiut Jiu huo! not hud
time to have' It copy prepared, but
supposed tho Court would lake a
recess at this stage, in which a copy
could be made.
Mr. Crcighton remarked on the
fact that the defense had insisted on
a copy of the charge for each one of
tho defendants. Tho prosecution
wag ready to go on with tho arcu
tnent. Mr. Hartwell disclaimed any in
tention of committing a discourtesy.

Col. Charles Seeley, press repre
sentative of Sells' Circus, called at
the Bulletin ollice to explain why
the animals in the menagerie could
not be exhibited here. The animals
are so packed on the ship that there
is not enough room for people to gel
round without risk of getting hurt.
Two or three cages contain tigers
just imported from the jungles, and
it would be unsafe to approach the
range of their claws. Mr, Ephraim
Sells, the senior member of tho pro
prietary, says he will return here
after the World's Fair and stay a
month with the show. The circus
hud packed houses, turning people
away, in all the large towns through
out the Colonies.
A traveljng man who chnnced to
be in the store of E. V. Wood, at
