Mr. Dnvir-s is the principal Ritttah aieicbam con

tho correspondent, and ebgertj Baked for !hc latest
news from America. He said ttiat lie Imd lr;id no

Li** Provisional Government of Hawaii to delay Hie
negotiations until he could Pring tho Prlaceas Killalan!
to Hie I'nited Males to plead fr lur righto. He
teared, he .aid, that the commissioners arete hurry?
ing to complete thc deal lief -re lier arrival, lie xvns
oonfldent that If Americans could see Hie Princess,
?who was a simple CbriaUan girl, lier throne xvould
Mr. Davie, said that he knew Mr. Thurt-ton and the
other commissioners Intimately. He had lived In
Hawaii himself for years. He and his wife were
friends of Ihe parents nf Knltilant, and when Mr.
Thurston sent her to England they consented to be?
come her guardians. The Princess spent her hoi!
days at Sundown ai one ot the lamil**, and tva*
treated HU* a daughter.
The Princess Kalulanl Is tall and slender, and with
a mure thoughtful, di Rilli ate air than might be ex?
pected In a sclvool-glrl. Sire 1* a brunette, with tin
eyes of a gazelle, and features that suggest just a
suspicion of Kanaka origin, she xvns aomewhat ner
vou . xvlien Interviewed, she -aid that she had nothing
to add Io Ihe appeal which she had addm-ed to Ihe
American people, and she expressed her 1 hunks that
her appeal hud been forwarded lo Hie American news
papers. She had, she said, no tataila plans, but
would be guided, by hw guardian, Mr. Davies. She
proposed to .spend two days In New-York, and then ta
visit Boston, where she xvould remain until after the
inauguration of President Cleveland. Then she would
go to Washington and would probably moho a personal
appeal to Mr. Cleveland. The ITlncess added that she
bsd no friends In America except the friends of Mr.
Davies. She timidly expressed a hope that she might
gain the sympathy of the American people.
?* I cannot sue," she continue... In a modest, he?l
tating tone, "why 1 should be luminnrily deprlx*ed of
recognized legal rights, for no fault of mine, nnd with?
out being even noiiiieil tb appenr in defence of my
right*. I a*k only that right of appearance which
American law g,ve_ to everybody before he or sb- 1- de
prlved of a right. I know absolutely; nothing about
this affair, except what has been in ihe newspapers.
No notification hu* been received hy me regarding lt."
'* What do you think (>f President HorriaOR'a rue-sage
urging annexatlonl" asked Hie eenespoadent.
'*! prefer not lo express an opinion on the subject,"
replied the Princess.
** Would you accept a pension or other compensa

-As to that, also, I prefer to ?ay nothing." was the
Di answer to other question-*, the Princes. said that
abe was entirely nppo-.-d to the policy of the Queen,
eepeclally In regard lo the bills which the Qaeen I
report d to have signed, nnd which gave rise to
Offence. The Maeaaa said that .he did not want
Haxvail to be under a protectorate of any sort. sh.
wished it to be Independent. -She believes that America
and Hawaii should tte xvarni friends. She had never
_e?_. an English official, and did not believe thnt
England xvould lnter.eiv ta Hawaiian affair-. When
asked if sh.* would return to England after her prcscii;
visit to America, th** Princess answered :
"Yes, if I am . uccessful. I 6hall be of age next
year, and then I shall curry out my original lntentinn,
lor which Ihe Hawaiian Legislature voted -4,0O*?.
W-leh was lo vi-lt Queen Victoria, then to visit the
President of Uk* United Mates, and then to proceed to
Hawaii and u.s.unie the position lo xvhich 1 am en
The Princess .aid that she fnvored the proposition
made bv Mr. Davies to the Provisional Government
of Hawaii, that a Regency should be appointed f"i
three years, with R. Ii. Dole. Hie head nf thc Pw
visional Government, as IT.-sidciit. th'- Princess to bc
Crowned Queen of Hawaii at the termination of th,
Regency. Here the ITim-ess excused bereeR on th.
ground'of hurry In pocking for tho Journey to Am.il, a.
As she arose she said In a pathetic tone, and x-lth
sudden spirP :
" I want to do all I run for my people, and to bc
an hone-t and true leader to them. 1 .-imply xxunt
to do mv duty to beloved Hawaii."
The Wine*., shook hand, warmly with the cor?
respondent, and thanked him ter the'sympathy shown
with her canoe, nnd naked him to convey her thanh
to the American press for the hearing given h'-r. Th*
I*iince?s and her Mends were then photographed In n
group in tho conservatory.
The party started on the noon train to-dav. aRghted
at Bootle mid drove te the steamship dock, where thej
boarded the Teutonic Although Hie name of (ht

unknown al Southport and elsewhere.

R. C. MACFARLANE PUTS XO CREDENCE IN K. J
D. KIMBERLY'S TALE.
E. C. Macfarlane, of Honolulu, who ls at the
Victoria Hotel, says lhat the story ns lold by a marr
at St. Paul, xxho gives his name as K. J. D. Kimberly,
of Honolulu, ls romance pure nnd simple. The Ult
ls to the effect that Om malia ard Englishmen on tin
Islands tried to drive away American guards, and
tli.it four of the IU imam were killed, lt was alao
said by Mr. Kimberly that the attacking party hm*,
ben tinned nt Ma Herman and Kngllsh (on-ulat*-.
According to the thrilling story five Americans had
also been killed in a street light.

"The time now ls too short before the close of the

No fault, however, can be found xvlth thc treaty, ll
lao gem, iiuU if lt I- satisfactory to Hie Hawaiian coin
missioners, lt certainly should meet with Hie approvai
of Hie American people, lhere I*, no r?-a-ou why the

undue ha-sto In the mutter. We understand the exact
condiilon of Uilngs on the Islands, and ii* there xvas
BO occasion tor delay the treaty was not drawn up
too soon. Tlie sooner the matter ls settled tue better
h will be for all concerned, but us lt takes tim** to
debate an Important ijuestlon similar to the Hawaiian
matter, und as there ls not sufficient time for that
debate, tin- Hawaiian.-, will i,.,ve to I. content to walt.

In answering inquiries from other SenatOBJ aleut Hu*

Mr. Thurston, the cliulrman of thc Hawaiian Com
mission, commented this evening on the Bena of
Princess Kaltilunl's sailing for this country as follows:
"The announcement that Kalala'1. ex-heir apparent
to the Hawaiian Ihrone, has left England to (onie to
Washington to claim her tlirone, opens a new phase
of the Hawaiian question. The situation, to say th*
lenst, ls peculiar, in the lirst place th" e.vlsiiti_
Hawaiian Oovernment. with President Dole nt lt*

baa been abolished. Queen Liliuokalani and nil othen
claiming title or consideration uniter the defunct
monarchy have n_ more legal rights than have th.
various other ex-klngs, queens, print e', prlnce.-si-s
and collateral claimants to thrones, nf which thara 1
a libera] supply scattered au over Ma globe. Thi
d.es not appear to bc* appreciated hy LtHaokalanl and
lier niece Kalulanl. The former has sent her
torney to Washington to make a claim to be restored
to her throne, although the attorney has made 1.
secret of the fact .Lat his expectations gre limited t 1
a certain amount of coln and that !.'? ls authorised tn

arrived here from Cellnfo-ilo a few days ago. brings
word that rumors ure In clrctilotlpn In that district
of a terrible Indian massacre that took place n few
weeba nco on Sorrow Island. Some itlvcrs Inlet
Indians xvent there lo hunt otter, and on the island
wera some of tho Klfhsfala. tribe, further north, nlso

molested a Kltkat.ilu.-5 girl, lier tribe avenged the
insult by hilling the a Reader, a oeaeral Bght aa.
Med, mid Hie Rivers Inlet men were vaaojuldied.
All were killed willi Ihe exception of three chiefs,
who xvere spared because of their raak. These chiefs
were imprisoned In a hui. The vlclorious Indians
held u pow wow, and lt was decided that if Ihe Rivers
Inlil <hlifs were allowed to return their tribesmen
would nveng*- themselves, so lt xvas decided to act un
the maxim, "dead men tell no tales." They were
therefore shot to death.
The story was told to Smith by some Indians, and

Uie steamer c.H|UltaJam, which had Just returned from
a hobing cruise la the locollly.
