(Conctpondcncc of the S. F, Call.)
Honolulu. April 13, via stoa
mor Australia. Tlioro nro ominous
mutlorings of impondingovil
in tho air. Whonco thoy qoiuo no
ono knows or sooms to caro.
it is that many of tho
supporters of tho
aro much dissatisfied with
its course, and more ospooially
sinco tho luto so-called
ion. Ono ciiuso of complaint is
tho want of somo oflioiout bond
to tho military dopartraont, which
at piosont is undor tho command
of Colonol Whiting. This
rosignod his position as
Judgo of tho Circuit Court toinke
that of Colonol of tho llawniiun
arm' in ordor that ho might prq
sido ovor tho rocont military
commission, and by his judicial
dignity and knowledgo of law at
loast givo it somo semblance of a
court. This ho did, and it is duo
to Whiting that
tho proceedings of tho military
commission woro conducted with
duo and propor docorum. But
this is all ovor and Judgo Whiting
is tnod of military honors
Of courso ho will bo reappointed
to his old position ns Circuit
Tn tho moarttimojjor"a is considerable
friction botweon tho
various military organizations horo
Tho rogular forco, consisting of
about 100 mon, has Ho commander
of oxporionco, and tho
companies aro insisting that
como ono with at loast a small
modicum of military knowledgo
bo imported and givou tho position
of colonol. This position
carrios with it a salary of $230 a
month and perquisites.
Another org i
is tho Sharpshooters.
Thoso pooplo aro all fancy shotB.
Thoy can noarly all hit a
oncoin a whilo and somo of
them can do it suvon timos out of
ton. Thoy mndo a pjroat rocord
in tho Into "war" and tho wholo
town has boon laughing at thorn
ovor sinco. Thoy aro good shots
evon at lfiOO yards, but tho man
is yot to bo found who siw nivy
ono of thorn go olosor to tho
ononiy than 1800 yards in tho
January troublo, In fact it is
just what somo of thorn s.iy and
glory in iho saying, "Wo didn't
go out thoro to takoanyohancos."
Aftor throo or four days of
and a handful of nativo polico
wont out and brought all thp
"lobels" in. Thoro it much moro
truth than poetry in Joaquin
Miller's writings about Honolulu
and tho luto revolution.
Tho potent factor in tho luto
uprising, and which ronlly quollod
it, WftB tho Citizens' Guard, At

tumod out to proteot thomsolves,
tholr wivos and families and thoir
proporty and tho ropublic. Thoy
did not go out of any prosonal
for tho Government or tho
mombors composing it, for individually,
with tho oxcoption of
Prosidont Dolo and Minister of
Foroigu Afl'airs Hatch, thoy aro
dooidodly unpopular, and moro
so now thnu over.
Whilo it cannot be said that
tho Oitizons' Guard suppressed
tho revolution tlioro being none
to suppross it can bo truthfully
said that it provonted one, and
this is fully recognized by tho
Government and Advisory Council.
So ploasod was tho Cabinot with
tho support rocoivod from tips
oigtuization tnat soon afer tho
rebolliou (so cillod) was sup-pressed
it took stops to turn it
intoa military organization,
a sot of rulos and regulations
for it, among which woro
trials by court-martial and
various othor obnoxious clauses.
Tho forco wns to bo subject to
various militiry regulations and
to bo ciptainod and oflicerod liko
a roguhir militiry company.
Tho mombers, or luthor a
majority of thorn, did not boo it
in that light and thoy protested
vigorously, and aro still doing so.
Squad 8, nuniboring somo fifty
mombors, utterly refused to bo
governed by tho now regulations,
and tho rosulfc is thoy havo boon
consigned to tho waste-paper
basket. Thoy claimed, as do
joined for a cortain purpose,
which was to assist tho Government
in preserving ordor in caso
of omorgoncy. They woro givon
commissions- ns spooial
and wero armtd, but tho
commissions oxprossly stated
that they should not bo required
to loavo thoir own districts on
any account. Tho Government
has been trying to upset this
arrangomont and make tho
organization puroly military, nnd
it bus met with an ignominious
This, of course, has created
much dissatisfaction among tho
mombors, and many of thom have
throatenod to throw up their
If might safely
bo prodictod that if anothor
revolution broke out
not of tho Oitizons,'
Guard would turn out for duty.
And thoro aro serious rumors
abroad about anotljor outbroak to
occur almost ut any time. The
royalists say, as do many of tho
supportors of tho prostnt rogimo,
tint tho January outbreak was
only a Hash in tho pun, and that
tho roal ono is yot 10 .como.
Thoro aro good roasons for be
hoving this to bo true. Tlioro is
general dissatisfaotipn ljoro ovor
tho labor question. Only last
Vook noarly 000' Portuguoso contract

only yostorday Uiat tho editor of

"Wlion wo get through with
Ohina wo will take nouohilu and
after that San Franoisoo." And
tho mnn honostly meant what ho
