EXPEDITION OVEK THE PALI.
Cecil Brown, when ho roached tho
Pali, aftor having found no dnngor
at Waolani, sent tho greater part of
his sound hack to town. Ho rosori-
ed four of tho best men on the regu

A. V. Carter's squad was sent to
guard against a possible march of
tho rebels upon tho city, by way of
that pass and Nituanu Pali. Mr.
Brown telephoned his arrival at Wai
manalo at i:!H). lie reported Cart
er's squad as at tho pass, and Win.
Henry's at tho foot of the pass. No
rebels wero seen on the way.
Tho returning members of Brown's
party wero halted several times by
tho guards. When they wore near
tho Jtoyal Mausoleum they hoard
th reo volleys. Tho reports sounded
as if they came from Mauoa valley.
Tho bark seen off Watanae yester
day, which occasioned the Claudiuo

George P. Townseud, formerly
engineer of Engiiio Co. No. 2, was"
brought to the station about 1
o'clock. Ho had been caught on
tho Waialao road near Diamond
Head. In tho brush uoar where he
was caught wore found thirty-six
Winchester carbines iu fine condi
tion, besides a large amount of am
munition. Shortly aftor f o'clock au elderly
native named Kiua wts brought in
by tho detectives. On his premises
at Pnlama wero found an old-fashioned
pistol and five sticks of giant
powder. Kiua is a familiar figure
about the Pishmarket on haturdnys.
J,ABT NIGHT'S SENSATION.
It Miht Prove to Opon Up a Nuw
Yesterday oveuing n native named
Paaluhi telephoned in a report from
Montana's in ' Mauoa valley, that
twenty-three natives wore seen
marching through the valley toward
Punchbowl. Squads under Chan.
Wilder and Alex. Hobertson wero
sent out to reconnoitre, They scorn
ed the whole region but saw nothing,
according to a report brought in by
messengers aftor eleven o'clock.
One rumor was that the natives
wore disguised iu woman's clothes,
and it was supposed that they had
captured two of Dilliugham'ffgcouts.
Another expedition of thirty or
forty guards was sent out ami ro
turned at midnight. They report
ed it a fact that a baud of natives
had been seen iu the valley. Some
wero of opinion that it was a crowd
from the rebel until p trying to man
euver their way to thoir respective
places of abode. It seemed to be
the prevailing opinion, however, that
Nowleiu intends to work his contin
gent around the side of Mt. Tan
talus to this side of the Pali, so as
to gain the Nuuanu road without
haviug to go around by tho Waima-
naio pass ami attempting inn dan
gerous ascent of the Pali, probably
in the face of a covered tiro from
This latter theory obtains support
from the report of Johu Dunn, who,
under direction of the Government,
entered tho camp of Wilcox ami,
as a trusted sympathizer and sup
posed recruit, obtained a statement
of that chiofi ain's plans. These were
that ho was to capture Punchbowl
and tho powder magazine, and Now
leiu was to join forces with him at
Punchbowl, It was calculated that
tho city would fall an easy prey to
them from that position.
Wilcox and his immediate sup
porters appeared to be Bomowhat
surprised at the report of how well
the Government's defense was being
carried out. He said a Canadian
named Evans, with seven white men
who had seen active service iu the
Jtiol rebellion, would be joined by a
largo forco of natives at Moaualua
and march to the support of the
main body, Dunn was detailed with
a party of natives to carry instruin
tions in regard to this scheme to
Nowleiu. By strategy he got away
from tho prrty and getting into
town made his report to the Uovorn
ineut. In consequence of Dunn's report
Companies E aud B wero ordered to
occupy Punchbowl at midnight,
which they did taking field pieces
with them. This movement will
probably foil the rebel commander's
Ruport from Oltlzous' Qunrd,
Captain Murray of the Citizens'
Guard sent a note to Marshal Hitch
cock from Camp Murray, Wailupe,
at y o'clock yoBtorday ovouiug ao-
quaint'inff him with llio fact that
uvo rebels had been captured. Ono
of Murray's own tuou was also stmt
in ns a prisonor, on account ol in
subordinate conduct. Murray was
positive that Nowleiu and Wilcox
wore in tho hills and a skirmish lino
would ho put out on tho morning of
tho 9th. Early this morning tlio
skirmish lino was mado and it was
fouudthat tho bird had Mown. Tho
squad then returned to town. Capt.
Murray did olllciont work. Tho
mon wero well treated by Paid Ison
horg at his Waialao ranch. Henry
Jvans was coiporal of Murray's
squad and BehreiiB acted in a similar
capacity iu Joo Silva's squad.
Doputy Marshal Brown aud a
mounted patrolman rodo out Mer

carriago containing A G. M. Hobert

afternoon. Mr. Hobertson on re

Captain Murray and tho detail of

parly proceeded past tho residence
of Paul iBouborg on tho Waialao
road. Tho 'busses wore driven up
th" Palolo road and wont as far as
iUr condition of tho road would al-
low tho horses aud mules to go. A
wauon-load of provisions was taken
along. Tho guards stretched out in
the form of a half circle and began
firing into the mountains. The idea
is to endeavor to drive tho rebels
from the Palolo valley over to Wai
inaualo pass whore Alfred Carter
and William Henry have squads on
cnard. together with Cecil Brown
and four policemen If Murray's
men are unable to rout tho instir
gents out they will proceed farther
on tho Waialao road and drive the
insurgents into tho pass if it be possi
ble. Tho Waitnaualo pass is guard
ed, so tho rebels will be unable to
got out that way. An encounter is
inevitable and the only escape of the
rebels will be over the mountains.
Captains Murray and Uilbus and
Guard Sovorin wore positive this
morning that they knew where tho
rebels were located. Tho Citizens'
uuard iook sumuieui provisions to
last them a couple of days.

ing that if ho did not be careful hu

declined to say whether the hack

the insurrection began. Blackburn
is tho man who was let out of tho
Salvation Army corps on tho charge
of stealing a shirt from a fellow

charge was mado iu recrimination
for Blackburn's accusing his com
rade of drinking beer at a volunteer
company's after-drill refreshing.

After midnight Chester A. Doyly
and T. W. Hobrun accepted a detail
to make a recounoitering expedition
iu a brake to the top of Punchbowl.
Passing Capt. Chan. Wilder's artil

they would give a signal if the

Tho sound of musketry was heard

with instructions to return if possi

Later a telephone message was re

"Thoy'ro fighting like hell."
Messengers from within sight of
the battle, telephoning from Mon

The Sharpshooters are advancing
