mot iiiug ot December 10, afler a
puoago of o days, 10 hours, Go"
mimitpq fror: Honolulu. Tho
afternoon papers gave prominouco
to tho dia'ingniahed arrival.
Tho Evening Post says:
"Her departure from Hawaii
was evidently of very Biiddon
character, as none of tho mail
from the inland by this Bteamor
makes reference to her goiug, and
uouo of tho royaliat agoucics in
this city were nwaro of any iutou
tion ou hor part to visit thia coun

was chamberlain to hor brother,
tho lato Kiug Kalakaua, recoivod
a notification of the presenco of
royalty on board tho China and a
request from hor Mojesty that ho
meet her at once.
"Colonel Macfarlane was so
surprised at tho receipt of tho
measago that ho hastened in a
carnago to tho ollico ot Agon t ,
Schworin of tho Pacific Mail ,
Steamship Company for tho pur- I
pnhi) of confirming the news
winch he had recoived. Ho thon ,

on tho arrival of tho tug, aud sho
waa brought at onco to tho wharf,
whero a special carriago was iu ,
waiting, iu which, attended by hor (
maid and Colouol Macfarlane, sho
was rapidly driven to tho Califor
"lor arrival at tho hotel waB bo
much in tho nature of a surpriso
that tho ox-Queen was compelled
to wait in ono suite of apartments
until a handsomely fitted suite
which sho solected could bo ar
ranged to suit her couvonienco."
Hero follows a statement of tho
cordial recoption accorded to tho
Post reporter, who wus allowed
an interview iu presonco of Colo
nel Macfarlauo. Hor words woro
very guarded and, excopt for a
very brief Btatemout, sho declined
to answer questions as to the ob
ject of her mission in Amorica,
and concerning hor futuro movo
monts. "I am very glad to rocoivo tho
press," said Bho, "but I havo no
information to givo as to my pros
onco hero or the mission of my
visit. Indeed, I havo not as yot
had an opportunity of consulting
with my friend and advisor, Colo
uol Macfarlano, and as Boon as
I havo any information I will be
pleased to announce it."
Tho Poat goea on to say: "All
further questionings proved use
less, the ox Quoou declining most
positively, though in a very
courteous mauuor,to auswerthem.
'I havo mado tho only statement,'
sho said, 'that I have to mako and
can add nothing farther to it.'
"Sinco hor last visit to this
country Liliuokalani has aged
very materially. Hor face haa
stronger and deeper lines, and hor
hair ia now almost entirely gray.
Hor oyes aro bright aud active,

Colonel Macfarlane said to the
reporter outside: "1 was never
more astonished than when 1 re

utterly unnblo to divino tho ocen
siou of her visit, which ia in tho
uaturo of an allrouud surprise, aa
neither thia nor previout, mails
havo brought mo any intimation
of tho approach of tin's occasion."
The Post telle, from passengers
by the China, of the ovidont mys
tery aud surprise of Liliuokalani's
departuro from Honolulu. She
romaiued in hor stateroom until
tho vessel was well out to sea.
"Sho thon allowed her prosonco
to bo gouorally known, and during
tho ontiro voyago sho gavo ovory

an extent that ou two occasions

"Iho impression which ousted
among tho passengers is that
Liliuokalani is ou route to Wash
iugton, whero it is her intention
to mako a final aud urgout appeal
to President Cleveland for the
restoration of her throuo."
A Bulletin reporter interview-
rd her at noon. She said sho had
littlo information to givo to the
public. "I have dooided to take
u trip through this country," bIio
remarked pleasantly. "I may go
to London beforo I roturn to tho
