under the petition of plaintiffs for gen

Editor Evening Bulletin: The great
"I am" Wilcox held tnothcr meeting
here at the fishmnrket last evening nt
which a lesser number of Hawaltans
attended than at his prior meeting,
some tlmo ago. Wilcox appeared to
have on his best looks and surely
his volco gave Indications that if no
body else believed him ho at IcaBt was
the "wholo Bhow."
From start to finish tho great "I am"
repeated his stereotyped phrases of
"cockroaches," "snake," "reptiles,"
"peoplo of snlall force," etc., in refer
ence to tho Republicans and Demo
crats for whom he made It clear ho
had as much use as they have for
"Thoso who today composo a major
part ot tho Republican and Demo
cratic parties were those who In 1893
stole away tho Islands from the Ha
wallans." This ho kept repeating during tho
evening but It wns effectually stopped
by G, F. Affonso, who, of course, Is a
Republican. Asking Wilcox's permis

"Yes," said Wilcox, " havo said so
and will B.iy so again If you want it."
Affonso continued: "Please stato If
you did not sign tho annexation roll in
'93 or thereafter."
Wilcox was cornered nnd one of his
very numerous lies effectually stopped.
Ho tried hard, ns hard aa an un
principled demagogues rin try to evade
tho point at issue. Ho did not answer.
Affonso continued: "I know you did

This was too pointed, and Mr, Will

to bo questioned and further that It
was nobody's business.
Ho also stated that siroo Imaginary
Senator told him in Washington to
form a "Home rulo party." When ask

tried hard to remember tho names of
