ZARSBN'S' SHOT GDiV.
Richardt Wounded by Mistake
The Trial .Postponed.
William Lareen waa arrested last
Thnreday, charged with making an
assault with a deadly weapon on a
man named Bichardt, at Kbolanpoko,
this island. Larsen was formerly
connected with the police here, and
is well known in town. The hear
ing came np last Saturday morn
ing in the Police Court, and was
postponed until Wednesday.
The particulars of the case are
stated to be as follows: Larsen bus
been a stock raiser for some time,
and about three months ago was the
rvictim of several raids on his cattle,
by which he was a considerable loser,
and he made up his mind to catch
the thief if possible.
One morning about the time men
tioned above he saw two men an
proach his ranch on horseback. He
called for them to halt; they did not
obey him and be leveled bis shot
gun with the intention of laming
one of the horses.
Some of tho shot took effect in
Bichardt's knee, causing him to stop.
After . an explanation kfrom the
wounded man Larsen discovered his
mistake, and. immediately had tbe
man brought to shelter, summoned
a surgeon and did everything be
conld to relieve the condition of the
man. Larsen is out on $1000 bail.
HVI KAIAIAINA.
The Hoi Ealaiaina met at Bobin
son's Hall on Wednesday evening,
President J. A.. Kahoonei, in. the
chair. Several new naniegVwere
added to the executive committee.
i J. li. Kadlukou stated that the
Native Sons of Hawaii have ap
pointed a committee for each elec
toral district, consisting ' of three
members. The committees will call
a masB meeting in their own dis
tricts on MondHy evening, January
4th, for the purpose of nominating
candidates for nobles and represen
tatives for the coming elections. He
urged the Hui Kaluiaina to unite
with the Native Sons of Hawaii in
this matter, and he would move that
the President appoint similar com
mittees to meet together at the no in
inating convention to take place
next Monday.
The motion was put and carried,
and the President asked to be given
sufficient time to select good com
mittees, which was granted.
W. G. Achi spoke at some length
about the election of tbe. Road
Board.
The President announced that a
Bpecial meeting would be held on
Saturday evening. He would then
announce the members of the nomi
nating committees at that meeting,
also matters about the Boad Board
would be discussed.
Tbe meeting adjourned at 8:15
o'clock.
2804 1SS2
Tiie President and Several Mem
bers on tbe War Path.
The Hui Kalaiaina met at Robin
son's Hall on Saturday evening,
about twenty five members being
present. The meeting lasted nearly
two hours, but no new business wbb
Iransacted.
A long discussion ensued regard
ing the committee of fifteen elected
at tbe previous meeting to hold
nominating conventions at tbe elec
toral wards. Several members, in
cluding the President, took part in
the controversy, which reached
"boiling point" several times.
President Kahoonei was so worked
up that polite addresses of "Mr.
President" only met with snob
abrupt answers, as "You wait till I
get through!" "Yon sit dovn "
etc , accompanied by a tremendous
shaking up of tbe presidential table
with his huge cane. After this warm
deliberation of over an hour, the
committee was finally discharged.
A motion to reconsider it was met
with merciless opposition.
The President deolared tnat time
was wasted because there were many
" sensible " members on the commit
tee which he did not favor. The
uneducated were more to bis liking;
and he could get on smoothly, with
them because "birds of a feather
flock together."
A little before 9 o'clock a motion
to adjourn was made, and the Presi?"
dent, in his confusion, forgot to put
tho motion before the house, but
hurriedly put on his hat and walkeidj
out, the rest doing likewise. Thus
ended a laughable meeting.
LIB EE AL MEETING.
Candidates For the Road Board
Announced.
WirXOXTDEWIES HAVING WRITTEN
THK NEW YORK WOItUD
: BETTERS.
Qver one hundred people assembled
at tho old Armory on New Year's
Eve to hear Hon,.B. W. Wilcox's ac
count of his recent political stumping
tour-around Hawaii and MauL Hon.
J. E. Bush'preslded.
Hon. D. Wi Pua, of .the executive
committee,, announced the Liberal
party's candidates for the Road Board,
which are'Sam'uel CD wight, Samuel
Mahelona arid' Abraham Fernandez.
The confirmation of tbe candidates
by tho Liberallsts was delayed till
they receive from them a public state
ment of. their views. S. Kekukahiko,
was appointed a committee of one to
inform those gentlemen to appear be
fore the Liberal party.
Tho arrival of R. V. Wilcox was
hailed by tbe audience with rapturous
cheer.. Cries of "Wilcox" from every
part of tbe hall compelled him to
come forward and address them. Ho
avoided his usual noisy style of speaking-.
R. W. Wilcox: ' Dear friends: The
elections are drawing nigh. Political
opponents are now springing up.
They include the most influential men
which the other side could muster.
Our enemies have forwarded forged
letters of a revolutionary character
abroad and they have blamed me for
them. They said that I am guilty of
sending these letters to Mr. Moreno.
I have read these very same letters
months ago in San Francisco and
Washington papers. My name was
not attached to them then, but now, I
see that my name has been attached.
Now, can you believe that I wrote
these letters? Several voices: No.
Is it not most strange that if the Mar
shal is aware and really believes that
a Hawaiian is engaged in this work
of revolutionizing a monarchy into a
republic, is he not in duty bound to
investigate tbe matter and bring to
light tue.guilty perpetrators'? Surely
this is arconspiracy. I admit tbatMr.
Moreno is my friend. He was a cabi
net minister here in 1SS0, and he took
me to Italy to be educated. You all
know how Moreno bitterly opposed
the missionary rule. That was the
main reason of the very short dura
tion of his cabinet appointment. I
have corresponded witli him and still
do. .None of those letters published
here are mine. In my own letters to
Mr. Moreno I informed him of mat
ters relating to the ministry and the
Marshal. What is most surprising to
me is the quick dispatch of these let
ters reaching here. The letters ap
peared in the issue (New York World)
of December 11. This is without
doubt the work of an enemy. They
kuow that I am the nation's leader,
so they put my name under those let
ters to bring the odium of my consti
tuents upon me, and so bailie my
hopes at the coming elections. Did
you ever know me to advocate annex
ation with tbe United States? What
I have stated in public, and I repeat
itnow,thatif ouraflairs continue to be
conducted in a base and unsatisfactory
manner as it is at present, its own
rottenness will hasten us to a repub
lic. If such ignorant and incompe
tent men as tho Marshal and the Attorney-General
contiuue enjoying
sovereign power, and they encour
aged in their villaiuous works, then,
without doubt, a republic will surely
appear. It's because of the stench now
pervading our affairs. It will not
emanate from me. There was a rea
son for the revolution of 1887. Who
were your leaders then? (Several
voices: Kaulukou and Rosa.) What
did they do? (Same voices again: they
simply looked at us.) Therefore they
aided tho revolution. Can they
claim to be patriots? The present
Marshal acted as a detective for the
revolutionists during that crisis. All
.the private instructions of the King
were exposed by him to the Reform
Party. It was this great service to
the Reform Party that had kept C. B.
Wilson so long in the Water Bureau.
All the other supporters of the King
were dismissed from oflice; but,
strange to say, a traitorous man still
holds sway. Cheers. The Queen
has declared that this nation is fortu
nate in having such a man as C. B.
Wilson. Cries of: Away with him!
The foreigners are not advocating an
independentgovernmentfor us. They
favor annexation with the United
States in order to get the two-cent
bounty on sugar. When I was at
Hilo recently a high Government of
ficial declared that he would favor a
candidate who would promote Mott
Sniith's treaty scheme. That treaty
virtually means our ceding Pearl
Harbor to the United States, and al
lowing them to erect forts there.
The Queen has sigued that treaty, but
the President of the United States has
not signed it yet. Congress is await
ing the approval of our Legislature.
If the candidates of the Reform Party
would all bo elected, Puuloa will
surelv be ceded to America. The
natural results would be that Pearl
City lots will be greatly enhanced in
value. That is their iole ambition;
they are creatures without souls.
Money is their ruling motive: they
care not for our independence. What
matter is it to them if you are all
driven to the mountains? If you give
Puuloa away that is the first invita
tion to the elephant's nose to come
in and the eagle's claws would follow,
and lastly, you, would be set aside.
Who are these in our midst favoring
annexation? Is it I, who bitterly op--pdses
these, conspirators? If Mr.
Ka'uluk'ou had any love for his coun
try, he should have sacrificed his life
and all the police in this city on that
30th day of June. His Beamy
would have lived In th hearts of his
countrymen. Mr. J. A. Cummia
treads down your rights. He Is
brainless and he allows tbe Jews t
instruct him. He bates HnmHnntt.
My friends have arged me to taJw
Ieal measures against these woe
published those fatee letters csfeutol
ed to injure rae. The paMiihew eC
those letters cannot brtBg ferw?rf
witnesses, and they would surely he
cast into Jail. They are eertaity
gulltref HbcL But! am seek aad
gentle of heart-. My very last mvms
ures against Hawaiians would he
resorting to courts ot laws. My
first: duties are. te iBstrast
them in the right paths. I must e
ligbten them of their duties to thek
nation. Cheers. I wsttkl wrk to
ftromote even those who ru my BMWt
nveterate foes, if I know they are
honest in their purposes; but tntiton,
they must suffer deserved penalties.
Cheers. Our city officials are net
awake to their duties. Hawaii is
enjoying a peaceful prosperity ader
Mr. Hitchcock. How is the Hoa.
Tahitian creature castoa ourstteres
fromran obscure place? Cheers.
, (Here Mr. Wilcox desired nuyoae
in the audience to ask his questieas
relating to the alleged letters, bat the
audience demanded of him to relate
to them the story of his recr.nt politi
cal campaign around Maui a-ad Ha
waii.) Mr. Wilcox continuity sJd: a
monarchy is good, if tbe e6vreigR is
good, and so is a republic That is ray
sincere belief. I have stated this oft
limes before. I detest to see an ignor
ant coachman placed above um I
cannot tolerate the sight of freaks of
nature. The divine right of fcieg
was tho belief that aervaded Uk
minds of the people ia aga goe by.
We arejiow in an eaNghtewed &ge.
The doctrine of the divise Rht ot
kings is just as foeibh as sfcntling
yourself up in yourcteeet&Rtl praying
for food. You must labor. I. will now
begin our story: Mr. White and ray
self arrived at Kohala on Saturday.
We went to NiulU, anil there held a
meeting. The insufficiency ot the
notice did not interfere with our ob
taining an enormous crowd. We
addressed the people. Hon. J. K.
Kahoakano is the planters' eaadidate
there. Mr. Kamauoha is oar caixii
datc, and he is very strong there. On
Monday we went to Waimea, ami the
following day arrived at Hamakaa,
We held a meeting at Waipio. Mr.
Kaunamano represents the plasters,
and J. Paakiki the Liberal Party;.
They arc both good, men. The caadi
dates at North Hilo are J. Haakiate
and J as. Mattooiu At Central Hilo,
Messrs. Kauwila Uses, Ko&h ouTlta9s
man and Henry West are the candi
dates. Hon. J. Nawahi has ne
opposition at South Hilo. We heliL a
meeting there, and Mr. bite spoke
for two hours to an enthusiastic
audience. Mr. Rycroft will likely be
put up to oppose Mr. Nawahi. The
Reform party are still silent, but yet
they are working secretly, iter.
Joseph will oppose Hou. Kama! at
Makena. Hon, L. W. P. Kauealii Is
sure of election at Wailuku. At
Makawao, Hon. H. P. Baldwin has
put forward Mr. Kaluna tooppsw J.
Knmakele. At Lahalna. Hons. W.
Wliite and F. H.Hayselden and J.W.
Kalua arc in the Held Our foreign
friends have said that they would
give the preference of election to
olllce to competent HawaiianV .We
have plenty of them now, but sHl
they are not appointed. Do not
believe in that idle talk, they
only say that to catch your
votes. They do not love Hawaii.
I can bring forward twenty five Ha
waiian scholars against the aaic
number of haole government official.
The native boys can discount tbeai in
mathematics, I arc sure of lhaf ' I
am not, bitterly opposed to haole.
There are many respectable foreign
ers of good intentions. And now
comes an ' ignorant plasterer, Mr
Bowler and wants to become a No
ble! We are not diffident in the
number of educated Hawaiian. I
want to raise up "na haole maikai,'
(good foreigners), but not illiterate
masons. Cheers.
Hon. Jos. Nawahi: We want
justice to prevail. Those who are
against U3 are avefoed to it. Any
Hawaiian who does not want his
race to be raised should have a mill
stone around bis neck and thrown
into the sea. If I shall be elected at
the coming elections, I shall then ar
rive at my twentieth year In the leg
islature. The legislature has become
my schoolhousc. My past record In
the house is unblemlheu,aml you are
witnesses to it Ifyu trust rae, re
ject traitors. Wilcox did not write
those letters printed in theHoIomua.
The allusion to the Queen and Mr.
Cleghora clears Wikoxrof its aathor
ship. Mr. Wilcox is too weir posted
to write such a inlxed-ua account.
When tho new constitution was
placed before the Jate- King for his
signature, I was the firsf4 one to read
it. The King required my advice. I
pointed out to him tbe objectionable
clauses. , I urged Jilm not to sign it;
but six "days later, the constitution
was signed and promulgated.
J. E. Bcsn: 'The letters attributed
to Wilcox are forgeries. They were
ihe work of cunning lawyers.
These letters were first puoliahed
in Mr. J. A. Cumoslar paper,
tbeHolomua. I tell yoar4Jfc. Casa
mins was the very one wa7wree te
tbe American Minister to laad sailcjs
when the Queen defied Mr.Caraaaias'
Cabinet. Mr. Wilcox cannot write
good English. 1 believe that a cer
tain haole, on our side and whom we
