Hawaii's Princess and Her
Guardian at New York.
APPEAL TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
Sha Aaka That They "W.ll Refuse to let
Their Flair C iver Dishonor to Mine"
She Alto Wants to Know Who Commit-
(toned the Annexers Object ot Her
Presence Here and a Statement by Her
Guardian, Who Intimates That Carter
t al. Hare Violated Their Oaths.
New York, March 2. Princess Kaiu
lani, niece of the deposed Queen Liliuoka'
lina of Hawaii, is here. She arrived yes
terday on the Teutonic. With her were
Theophilus Davies and Mrs. Davies, who
re the English guardians of the princess;
Miss Davies and Miss Whartoff, com'
panion to the princess. . McFarlane,
the ex-minister of finance to the dethroned
Queen Liliuokalani, and Dr. Mott Smith,
the present Hawaiian minister to this
country, went down the bay to meet the
young princess. There was quite an army
of curiosity seekers on the pier to get a
glimpse at the princess. A suite of rooms
had been engaged for the party at the
Brevoort house and they were driven there
Immediately after coming off the steam
ship. A Tall and Beautiful Girl.
The princess is 18 years old. She is a tall,
beautiful young woman of sweet face and
lender form. She has the soft brown eyes
and dark complexion that mark Hawaiian
beauty. She has come to the United
States, she said, more for the purpose of
learning and observing for herself the na
ture of the people who had been asked to
take control of her country than to make
formal petition for her crown. "That," she
aid, "is rightfully mine, and if the Amer
icans are the noble-minded people I have
learned to regard them as they will not be
a party to the outrage by which I have lost
my birthright." In regard to her views on
various aspects which the Hawaiian situa
tion is likely to assume, Princess Kaiulanl
referred to her guardian, Mr. Davies, who
had prepared a statement both on his own
and her behalf.
The Appeal of the Princess.
The statement of Princess Ealulani Is as
follows: , . : ,
"To the American "People: Unbidden
I stand upon your shores today where I
thought so Boon to receive a royal welcome
on my way to my own kingdom. I come
unattended except by the loving hearts
that have come with me over ' the wintry
seas. I hear that commissioners from my
land have been for many days asking this
great Dation to take away my little vine
yard. They speak no' word to me and
leave me to fiud out as I can from the ru
mors of the air that they would leave me
without a home or a name or a nation.
Demands the Annexers' Authority.
"Seventy years ago Christian America
sent over Christian men and women to give
religion and civilization to Hawaii. They
gave us the guspel, they made us a nation
and we learned to love and trust America.
Today three of the sons of those mission
aries are at your capital asking you to
undo their fathers' work. Who sent them?
Who gave them authority to break the
constitution which they swore they would
Comes to Claim Her Bights.
"Today I, a .poor, weak girl, with not
one of my people near me, and all these
Hawaiian statesmen against me, have
strength to stand np for the rights of my
people. Even now I can hear their wail in
my heart and it gives me strength and
courage; and I am strong, strong in the
faith of God, strong in the knowledge that
I am right, strong in the strength of 70,
000,000 people who in this free land will
hear my cry and will refuse to let their
flag cover dishonor to mine."
STATEMENT OF HER GUARDIAN.
Ho Presents a Plea for the Princess' Ac
session to the Throne.
Mr. Davies in bis statement reccites how
and when the princess was sent to England
and put under his protection in order to
prepare herself to assume be Hawaiian
throne. Continuing, Mr. Davies says:
"Her one idea, and our one dea has been to
prepare her for the return to her own land
during the present year, when she attains
her majority. One of the ltst acts of the
Hawaiian legislature was to vote a sum of
$4,000 for the expenses of the return tour
of the heiress apparent Arrangements
were in progress for her reception by the
queen of England during the coming
spring, and then she was to make a pro
longed visit to Washington, New York,
Chicago, Boston and other great American
cities, finally reaching Honolulu in Octo
ber or November.
Requires Ulluokalanl'a Abdication.
"When news reached me by cable of the
revolution in Hawaii I wrote to the minis
ter, pointing out what appeared to me to
be the grave difficulties in the way of the
carrying out by the commissioners of the
proposal for annexation. I stated that in
my opinion no amount of reasoning and no
amount of bribe Would ever gain the pure
Hawaiian vote and that without that vote
annexation could neither be completed nor
carried out hereafter. I then urged that, a
convention of all classes of voters should
be called, a carefully revised constitution
presented to them, that the queen should
be required to abdicate, and that the Prin
cess Kaidluni should be proclaimed queen
with a council of regency, of which 1 sug
gested that Mr. Dole, now head of the pro
visional government, should be president."
An Anonymous Cablegram.
;, The only reply he received was the
words: "Islands transferred; princess pro
vided for." This was unsigned. The
princess received nothing. The only thing
left he said was to "stand here beside the
princess, in the presence of these represen
tatives of Hawaii, who would transfer her
birthright, without the civility, the
humanity, of one word to her of exolana.
tion ot even ot sympn thy. We come here
with no official stnliiH and with no official
information, but with the conviction that
the government and people of the United
States will not lend tiieircontenance to the
disinheritance for no fault of her's or her
nation of a royal lady who has wit h singu
lar grace ami courage endeavored to fit her
self for her hi-;h station and has shrunk
from neither duty nor sacrifice in the ef
fort." The Conntitutional Aspect.
Referring to the annexers he said: "Sev
eral of them were c ncerned iu the prepa
ration, of the Hawaiian constitution of
18ST, which they compelled the king to ac
cept and since to maiiitnin. At least four
of the commissioners hitve taken the oath
to the same constitution audit has beeu
adopted Jtiy the nation. When Liliuokalani
ascended the throne she took the usual
oath and by that constitution the Princess
Kaiulaul was proclaimed heir to the
throne. The queen appears to have vio
lated her consiitutioi Al oath and to have
laid herself open to leposition, but that
jannct affect the corstitution itself nor
She oaths which the commissioners took."
Will See President Cleveland.
He added that there was no pretence that
Hie Hawaiian electorate were agreed with
ihe annexers, and was delighted to learn
that action on annex ition was laid over
Tor the next administr.itioir. The princess
nd her advisers desi:d to see Cleveland,
lot in an official capacity, but as private
individuals. "What his decision is will
scarcely be affected by our visit. The prin
cess felt that in face of the threatened an
nexation of Hawaii by the United States
the ought to come here where she could
learn directly what was the true sentiment
of the people."

Baraboo, Wis., March 2. A most
thrilling incident occurred here yesterday
afternoon. A circus which is wintering
here was putting a lot of pythons and boa
constrictors into new quarters. In some
way a little Norwegian boy stepped into
the cage of a boa constrictoi thirty-two feet
long. The snake sprang from the cage
with distended jaws and gobbled the
youngster. Tha attendants were liorrifU!
to discover a fast disappearing pair of legs
stretched out through the monster's jaws.
The great serpent's eyes were aflame with
excitement and in another second or two
the poor little Norwegian boy would have
disappeared from view.
His SnaliKhi Wngt His Tail.
It happened that Henry Kingling, a giant
in strength and stature, was present. He is
a man of quick impulses, and without
counting the cost or foreeeing the danger,
he grasped the serpent around the neck
and commenced shaking it. With one
swipe of its muscular tail it sent Hincliug
scurrying heels over head cross the floor.
Al Ringling (Henry's brother) took in the
situation at a glance, and grasping a long
chain lying on the floor, he passed it
around the serpent's body at a point about
six inches below where he thought the
child's head would be.
Boa Tied Vp and Boy Tulled Out.
Directing several attendants to grasp
either end of the chain and pulled with all
their strength, he was gr.Htitied to notice a
relaxation of the snake's effort to swallow
the child.Then the chain was made fast.The
snake's tail was fastened around a post
and the whole body was drawn to its great
est tension. This rendered his majesty
inert and powerless. He still continued to
gulp, but his game was up. Two men in
serted a wagon jack between his jaws, and
by degrees they were pried open and the
boy pulled out.
An "F.xperienced" Youngster Now.
His head and body were covered with a
thick saliva of a peculiarly offensive odor.
The boy gasped for breath and then burst
into tears. Then ho looked around in a
wondering way and ran out of the house
and across the snow to his father's wagon.
The boy will recover unless blood poison
ing sets in. The wounds are aliout his
