IS THEO. H. DAVIES GUILTY ?
He Is Advised to Read Up on the
HIS ACTS SEVERELY SCRUTINIZED.
V. . A. Writes a Strong Indictment
Against the Ex-Queens Champion
Ills Word Compared With the
"Words of the statute.
Ill referriug to our calm review of
the Daviesiaii literature, which merited
and received, under the present
circumstances of our political affairs,
the most sober, conscientious and just
consideration, as we believed, Mr.
Davies sends to us these severe u ords:
"In fact, the only serious statement
that your " W. N. A." makes is when
lie gives himself away and you away
by writing, 'for the purpoes of this
review we shall answer that they
(Mr. Davies' propositions), are correct
and cannot be gainsayed.' "
We regret that our very sober ana
conscientious review of Mr. Davies'
literature is not sufficiently serious.
We will now make another attempt,
which, with the aid of the Attorney-General,
if he will give it, may convince
Mr. Davies that we can, and
this community can, be very serious.
Mr. Davies will please follow us
closely, and it might be well for him
to ask his attorney to spell it out with
him. Lawyers are useful persons in
such matters. "We will cite a law
which was taken from the English
statute on the subject:
"An Act concerning seditious offences.
Approved Jan. 30, 1S93.
"Section 1. Everyone commits a
misdemeanor who publishes, verbally,
any words or any document with a
"Sec. 3. A seditious intention is an
intention to bring into hatred or contempt,
or to excite disaffection against
the Provisional Government of the
Hawaiian Islands, or the laws thereof,
or to excite the people to attempt
the alteration by force of any matter
established by the laws of the
Government, or to raise discontent
and disaffection against the
Provisional Government, or to promote
feelings of ill-will and hostility
between different classes of people in
the Hawaiian Islands.
"Sec. 5. Any person guilty of any
misdemeanor within the meaning of
this Act, shall be punished by imprisonment
at hard labor for not more
than two years, or by fine of not more
The following are extracts from Mr.
Davies' letters, published from time
to time during the last year, and republished
on Jan. 25, 1894. They are
not, therefore, to be regarded as
views which were believed to be correct
at the time, but have now no
force and effect, but they are, in fact
and law, re-affirmations of former
opinions, uud if seditious in intent,
are to be regarded as fresh utterances
of a late date.
Mr. Davies informs us that the one
object for which he "entered the lists
was the defeat of annexation, by the
preservation of Hawaiian independence."
There is no "disaffection
against the Provisional Government"
in opposing its policy of annexation,
and we have therefore, confined the
extracts to those words only, which
have no reference directly to annexation,
but tend directly to excite "discontent
and disaffection" towards the
Government by reason of its overthrow
of the monarchy. The words
and the statute should be read in connection.
On page 4 of the pamphlet, referring
to the establishment of the Provision
al Government, Mr. Davies says: "I
say that judged as acts only, they constitute
a moral and political crime."
Do not these words disclose an intent
to "excite discontent and dissatisfaction?"
On page G, he says: "Every true
Hawaiian is bound to defend that
throne and flag against all assailants
except the Hawaiian people." These
are words which excite the people,
not to oppose annexation but to restore
the throne and defend it. Do
they not excite discontent and dissatisfaction?
On page 10, he says: "My hope is,
that under the just counsel of the
United States, that they (the P. G.)
will retrace their steps to the point
where they parted from the constitution,
that they will enter into a new
comjmct with the old sovereign or
the new one," etc. Do not these
words excite "discontent and disaffection?"
On page 23, he quotes from an article
in the K. Y. Times, and approves
of it, in which it is said regarding annexation,
"but in point of fact, it is a
proposition to convey and make over
to the United States a stolen kingdom,
and the Government of this Republic
cannot afford to put itself in
the position of a receiver of stolen
Do not these words excite "discontent
On page Gldated January 6th, 1804,
he says to Mr. Bishop: "You have no
right to steal a corrupt monarchy,
any more than you have a right to
steal a Bible. I believe I gave you
an opportunity once before to prove
that you did not steal a kingdom"
(the "you" referring to the supporters
of the Government
Do not these words excite "discontent
and disaffection against the Provisional
On pige 24, he says: "the present
Government is not the Government
of the jeojlc nor of the constitution."
Do not these words excite "discontent
On page 35, he says; "every conviction
tells me that a government of
law and order, cannot rest upon the
basis of the acclimation of a mass
Do not these words excite "discontent
On page 47, in reply to Mr. Hatch,
he says: "I believe that whereas Mr.
Gresham uses the words 'fraud and
force' to describe the acts of the United
States officials, he would use a

much uglier word to define the act of
those so-called Hawaiians who invited
the 'fraud and force.' "
Do not these words excite "discontent
and disaffection" against the
The extracts above cited do not
cover all of the language used by Mr.
Davies which is intended to excite
discontent with the Government.
The language is plain and unambiguous.
It might be instructive for him
to read over his words and the statute,
with the aid of his attorney.
When a Government has established
itself, it must protect itself,
whether it is an hour or a century
old. It can tolerate no question about
its title. Mr. Davies is presumed in
law to know this. If he does not, it
is time that he and others had some
"object lessons." He felt safe, undoubtedly,
to excite discontent so
long as the Government and its
friends believed, rightly or wrongly,
that it might crumble under the
American guns. In its peril, heat-tacked
it persistently. Neither his
own Minister, or the English war
ships, will protect him against an
offence which all States regard as a
very serious matter.
In a defence to an indictment for
using seditious language, Mr. Davies
may follow the example of the editor
charged with libel. He answered
that no damage arose because "he
was such a liar that no one believed
him." Mr. Davies may plead that it
was not in his power to excite discontent
against the Government.
We have made frantic efforts to be
serious in this matter, but if we have
only indulged in "hyenistic hilarity,"
in construing his language and that
of the statute regarding seditious offences,
we respectfully invite him to
call theattentlon of the Attorney-General
to the subject the same person
who invited Mr. Davies to visit the
Executive Building, last week, on a
trifling matter, and was treated by
Mr. Davies as if he was a small boy
who had sold him an ancient newspaper.
If Mr. Davies has violated any law,
he should be, and with his distressing
"sense of honor and duty," (page 35)
will be, the first to cordially invite
the prosecuting officer, to consider his
case, aud if there is probable cause,
take efficient means to vindicate the
law. If Mr. Davies should bo found
guilty, no one will submit to the penalty
of the offence, with more satisfaction
and humility than he, who
would prefer to remain in chains for
a thousand years on the "reef," rather
than one jot or tittle of the divine or
human law should remain unfulfilled.

THE MARSHAL RETURNS.
Reports Everything Going on Well
in the Country.
(Froru Wednesdays Daily ;
Marshal Hitchcock returned
from Kona on the Hall last night
and reports ewerything as going on
well in that district. The coffee is
looking finely. There is a great
deal of talk in the country districts
about the Eoad Board law. The
political leenng is gooa ana very
encouraging. The natives are very
indignant at the bloodthirst' disposition
The white residents are much
pleased at the attitude maintained
by the Provisional Government.
The reason why the Hall arrived
last night instead of this morning,
as was expected, is that the tide at
Lahaina was so low that she could
not load sugar. The harbor there
ii filling up.
In the matter of the successor to
Judge Haili, the Marshal reports
that there are half a dozen applicants.
The natives about all want
it. He thinks, however, that he
will be able to recommend a satisfactory
WITH A SICKLE.
A Native Attempts to Carve Peo-
pie in Kona.
Just before Marshal Hitchcock's
recent visit to Kona, a native man
of that district, who was very jealous
of another native, attended a
luau where "swipes" formed the
main article of diet. When the
jealous husband had become quite
a little under the influence of the
seductive liquor, he secured a sickle
and started in to clean out the
premises. One of the women present
attempted to take the sickle
from him, but he escaped from her,
and with the sharp instrument cut
a long gash in the cheek of the
woman's little daughter. He then
hunted up the man whom he suspected
of winning his wife's
affections, and proceeded to carve
him also. He was arrested, and the
Marshal arriving on the scene, conducted
the prosecution. Owing to
the man's state at the time of the
cutting, he was only given three
months in jail.
A Chinese Leper.
A Chinese leper named Ah Yong
was found on board the bark Velocity
by the police yesterday afternoon.
The Chinaman together
with his effects were brought to the
Police Station and afterwards sent
to the Kalihi Receiving Station.
He said he came from Huleia,
Waialua, last week, and stayed at
the house of a friend in this city.
Yesterday he went ou board the
Velocity intending to leave the
country for the country's good.

THE VIEW PROM THE VOLCANO HOUSE.
A Letter from Captain .Julius A. Palmer,
the Special Correspondent of
the ISostou Transcript. Describing
Hawaii' Wonder as It Apreari tnlllui
Mil. Editok: It is not probable
that to one so experienced as your
good self I can say anything new of
this Volcano, one of the greatest
natural wonders of the earth. Although
I went up on the side where
the road is the roughest, yet there was
no excessive weariness attending the
journey. We left the sugar mills at
about 9 o'clock in the morning and
arrived at the hotel about half-past 4
in the afternoon, having an hour's
rest and an excellent lunch at the
Half-way House. In reaching the
Volcano House, I could but think of
those Hues of Shenstone, which perhaps
you will recall:
"Whoe'er has traveled life's dull
round, where'er his stages did
May sigh to think he still has found
tne warmest welcome ai an inn."
Before speaking of the crater, let
me say that the notel far surpassed
my expectations; its high, bold position,
airy rooms, superb views, pretty
flower gardens, absence of mosquitoes,
and more than all, its genial, accommodating
host, Mr. Peter liee, render
it a delightful mountain house, were
there no other attractions. To you
these luxurious surroundings must
form a notable contrast to the days
when you had to carry your entire
stock of provisions, economize in
water and camp in grass huts. The
pristine purity of the atmosphere, the
delicious refreshment of the vapor
baths, should commend the place to
those who visit your island paradise
in search of health; I can scarcely imagine
an ailment which would not be
cured by a few weeks' sojourn at the
Volcano House on Hawaii.
But the great marvel of Kilauea! I
shall not attempt a description of it to
one who knows it so much better
than I; you asked particularly of its
present condition, and you have well
remarked that no two occasions
does it appear identically the same.
So now, Mr. Lee tells me that in the
eighteen years during which he has
been familiar with it, he has never
seen it as full as at the present time,
and seldom as active. The lake or
part of the crater which I should call
the basin, seems to me like a huge
caldron in whiclt is boiling a mass of
dough or hasty pudding; this caldron
has been filled too full, so after seeth
ing and surging hither anu thither,
spouting upwards in its effort to escape
the intense heat, it overflows its
brim, and pours out a sheet of molten
bras3 over the edge, naturally hardening
as it recedes from the fervid source
of supply. These flows are so frequent,
so voluminous, and extend to so long
a distance irom the nery lane that it
is considered more prudent to content
one's self with a view from the high
bluff or from the hotel, especially at
night; indeed, if one desires rest rather
than adventure, there is no necessity
in the present condition of the lake of
leaving your comfortable room, since
the surface is so high that from your
window, you can see the fire-fountains
Elay, and even distinguish the red-hot
alls or showers of sparks into which
they burst after reaching their highest
altitude. By day, with a competent
guide we rode over the hardened
lava, and those more venturesome
went up by the side of some of the recently
hardened flows aud peered into
the seething mass.
Before visiting the volcano, I could
never understand why it was. that
even at the seasons of its greatest
activity, Kilauea could be safely inspected
by the tourist, which is true,
I belleve.of no other active volcano in
the world. But once on the spot, the
mystery vanishes; the hotel or other
point of observation is above the
dangerous center or vortex of fire, so
that it might destroy miles of country,
and yet the traveller at the Volcano
House would not only be free
from the least proximity to danger,
but he might count himself fortunate
in being on the scene, when Madam
Pele was in her most violent fits of
As the length of my stay in the Hawaiian
Islands is uncertain, I did not
feel free to remain there but a very
short time. The trip, however, if
hurried as I was, should not be missed
by any of your visitors, especially
when It may be made in one week,
including stoppages. Another thing,
I warned to delay it as late as
on account of the rains. We
ad one severe experience with a
heavy fall of water, otherwise no rain
for the whole week. Beautiful
weather at the House, the whole
snow-clad slope of Mauna Loa visible
most of the time. And as between
rain and dust, I prefer the former, so,
considering the great activity of the
crater, the whole surface of which at
night is a sheet of fire, I should art vise
all persons intending to go at all, not
on any account to delay visiting Kilauea
in its present condition.
Again thanking you for the privilege
of reading your excellent accounts
of your own experience there
in the past, believe me
Most cordially yours,
Julius A. Palmer, Jr..

The experience of Geo. A. Apgar, of
German Valley, N. J. is well worth
remembering. He was troubled with
chronic diarrhoea and doctored for five
months, and was treated by four different
doctors without berefit. He
then began using Chamberlain's Colia,

which one small bottle effected a
complete cure. It is for sale by all

A ROUGH TRIP.
Experience of the Galveston, 157
Days From Hongkong.
The German bark Galveston, after
a long battle with wind and
wave, was towed into port Tuesday
afternoon. She was 157 days
When the Galveston arrived, she
had only a hundred pounds of rice
left for her eleven Chinese passengers.
The Chinamen all thought
tney were going to starve to death,
and some of them had given up all
hope of ever reaching port.
Captain Jacobsen, who was accompanied
on his long voyage by
his wife, said that after having been
about a month at sea the ship
struck hard weather, duriric which
both the foremast and the bowsprit
carried away. The captain put
back into A moy for repairs. After
remaining there for a short time,
she started on her long voyage for
Honolulu. Again she struck bad
weather gale after gale playing
havoc with her. First the bulwarks
were stove in, then the forward part
of the ship was more or less damaged.
As a fitting climax to all
the misfortunes, a heavy sea washed
over the after deck and carried
away everything movable. The
cabin was filled with water and
considerable damage was done.
The Chinese passengers were
very much afraid that the ship
was doomed. Offerings were made
to their gods, and, in their opinions,
that was all that saved them from
utter annihilation. One of them.
On landing, said , "W no ..,!,. iicauv
'make;' no more rice; two davs
more, we die."
