Very strangely the Benate Judiciary J
Committee reported favorably Senator
Toner's bill to repeal the act which Senator
Fay succeeded in having passed two years
ago, by which officials in San Francisco
were prevented from charging extortionate
fees. This is the bill for which Sheriff
Whelan and other city and county officials
have been lobbying. The bill was read for
the first time and made a special order for
Monday. The remainder of the morning
ses?ioi: was devoted to the Senate general
bill. C : !

MARY DODGE AT SEATTLE.
The Overdue Schooner Reaches
Port After a Rough
Voyage.
Blown Out to Sea by a Heavy
Gale When Near Fuca
Straits.
Skatti.e, Wash., March 2,— Just at dusk
this evening the tug Magic towed into port
the long-looked-for schooner Mary Dodge.
She was thirty-two days making the trip
from San Francisco to Seattle. She was
loaded down with many tons of powder
and dynamite-, and the fact that she was so
long overdue created anxiety for her safety.
jt was feared that the dynamite had ex
ploded and that the schooner and her crew
had gone to the bottom.
Said the Mary Dodge's master, Captain
Bergman, to a (.'all reporter this evening:
'We bad ratln-r an eventful voyage. Three
times did 1 get inside the straits only to
encounter severe winds which drove the
Fchooner far out into the ocean. We left
Ban Francisco January 28, and encountered
fairly good weather until Sunday, Feb
ruary 17. As the schooner was entering
the mouth of the Straits of Fuca a heavy
■wind from the southeast struck us. We
were unable to make any headway against
it, and as a result were carried in a westerly
direction 180 miles out to sea.
'During the gale we lost a few of the
lighter .sails, but suffered no other serious
damage. The wind at the time was blow
ing about forty-eight miles an hour. We
also struck several days of calm, and it
was not until last Sunday, seven days
from the time we were first carried out,
that we got inside the straits again. A
short time after we were in along came an
other severe wind. It wan from the east
and southeast, and once again we wqre
carried sixty or seventy miles out to sea.
This second wind was not quite so severe
aa the first, but it was thick and foggy at
the time and we were helpless. We were
carried to the westward again, and it was
not until 10 o'clock last night that we
pa-s»-d the capfs A northwester was blow
ing and we made pretty good time. The
tug Magic picked us up and towed us in."
Captain Bergman says that about fifty
five miles southwest of Cape Flattery he
sighted a piece of wreckage consisting of a
portion of a keel. It appeared to be about
seventy feet in length.
Adjutant-General Allen at Los Angeles.
Los Angeles, March 2.—Adjutant-Gen
eral C. C. Allen came down from Sacra
mento to-day on a trip to this city and
other Southern California points to pay the
members of the National Guard for strike
duty. General Allen, having recently pur
chased an interest in the Evening Express
here, may, upon his retirement from the
office he at present occupies, again engage
in active newspaper work.
FIVE YEARS FOR
HAWAII'S EX-QUEEN.
Her Sentence Not Pronounced
in Public With Other
Prisoners'.
SHE MAY SECURE A PARDON.
Wilcox and His Followers Re
ceived Thirty-five Years
and Fines.
HoHOl.DI.tr, FeD. 23— [Per steamer Aus
tralia]. — Ex -Queen Liliuokalani, con
victed by the military commission of mis
prision of treason, has Jbeen sentenced to
imprisonment for live years and to pay a
$5000 fine. Strong influences are at work
to secure her pardon.
It was thought that all the prisoners
were to be sentenced last night at 9 o'clock
and newspaper men vrere kept busy danc
ing attendance on the officials interested,
as at that time it was understood her ex-
Majesty would receive her sentence with
the rest. It would appear that the Presi
dent, at the request of Judge- Advocate
Kinney and others, concluded to keep the
matter over till this morning. There is no
doubt that it is to this delay that Liliuoka
lani owes her immediate escape from sen
tence."
At 2 p. m. to-day the President is re
ported to be wavering between granting
her a full pardon or letting the sentence
stand. It is common talk that Mrs. Dole
is interceding strongly for the ex-Queen,
and as she has great influence with her J
husband it is possible the Australia may I
yet carry the news of a full pardon. In
deed, the excitement against the ex-royal
lady has so far died out that it is the. gen
eral hope in the city that she will be par- ;
doned, not because she is not guilty, but j
on account of her age, ill health, previous
misfortunes, and further, because she is
the only woman mixed in. in tho affair. It
may be safely said, in the opinion of your
correspondent, that Liliuokalani will be
pardoned.
Charles B. Wilson, the authorized agent j
of the ex-Queen, says he knows of his own
knowledge that not only Honolulu ladies,
but men also, are making a rigorous tight
for the ex-Queen's pardon. Personally he
has no doubt that the pardon will be
granted, but thinks not to-day. lie also
says and authorizes the statement thai he I
has advised her not to ask for pardon under i
any circumstances, but to rely on her letter |
of abdication solely.
The ex-Queen has it in her power to do
some good among the natives, but it is
feared that her natural disposition will
prevent her from fully accepting the situa- i
tion. She may, however, do so, and if she j
does she will not suffer any hardship at
the hands of the Government. Her con
finement will be at present in the execu
tive building, which was her former palace.
She will occupy one of the large and airy
rooms formerly used by her and overlook
ing the tine park surrounding the building.
A number of sentences were announced
this morning. Among them were those of j
Robert Wilcox, W. T.Seward, W. H. Rick
ard and Charles T. GulieK. They were the
four leading plotters. Each man is sen- j
tenced to serve thirty-five years and to pay j
a fine of $10,000. These four men were
originally sentenced to be banged, but the
verdict of the court was changed to impris
onment by President Dole. This means
that no capital punishment will be in
flicted on the leaders of the rebellion. It
appears that the President has been op
posed to executions and his feelings were
shared by members of the Cabinet. Other
sentences are: Thomas Walker, thirty
years and a line of $.7000; Carl Widenian,
thirty years; William Greig. twenty years ;
Louis Marshall, twenty years. The last
two were lined $10,000 each. James C
Lane was given rive years and a tine of
95000.
Samuel Nowlein and Henry Bertleman,
two of the prominent leaders, have been
allowed their liberty. They gave valuable
evidence for the Government, without
which convictions in many cases could not
have been secured.
Captain Davies has been sentenced toten I
years and ordered to pay a fine of $10,000. '
He is the man who landed the arms for the
rebels.
Within the last few days a number of
prisoners have been released from custody.
Among the number is Charles Clark, who
gave the information that afterward re
sulted in the discovery of the arms and I
ammunition at the Queens residence.
On the 22d twenty-one rebels were sen- ■
tenced. These sentences are uniform. !
The men are each to serve live years at '
hard labor. A fine of $5000 imposed upon j
each man by the commission was remitted '
by President Dole upon the advice and
consent of the Cabinet. The punishment
fixed was the minimum under the statutes.
The Government and its supporters much
regret the defense made on the Queen's i
trial, under the advice of Paul Neumann.
She denied all knowledge of the revolt at
the time, when her premises were filled
with forty retainers, armed with guns,
pistols and bombs. It was hoped that she
would plead guilty to simnle knowledge of
the revolt, and then make a statement
which would almost compel the utmost
leniency. She could have said, it is sug- I
gested by those who have some compassion
for her: "I did know about the revolt in
a general way. I and my people had the
deliberate statement before us that my
throne was taken from me by the armed
forces of the United States, and not by any
of my subjects. I had alright to rely on
this for any justification of an attempt to
recover my throne by force. And, besides
this, if it was taken by my own subjects it
was only a minority who took it, and I can
plead in extenuation that 1 was acting with
a great majority of the people in approving
of revolt." This defense would contain
actual truth and would have put her in a
position to be dealt with most leniently,
and would have shown that the revolt was
due, to a considerable extent, to the in
fluence of the United States.
In the Queen's diary, now in possession of
the Government, is to be found very
curious and definite Information about the
revolution of January 19, 1893. It is well
known that the Queen's Cabinet at that
time had advised her to promulgate a new
constitution, but when it saw trouble
changed its'course and advised against it,
and even went so far as to appeal to Thurs
ton and others to support it against the
Queen. The demoralization of the Cabi
net made prompt action against the revo
lutionists impossible and, the revolution
ists claim, gave them a chance to take
possession of the Government without the
aid of the American marines.
The Queen makes this entry in her
diary: "December 4, 1893. I told Mr.
Richardson' (an intimate friend) he had
better tell Sam Parker (her Minister of
THE MORNING CALL, SAN FRANCISCO, SUNDAY, MARCH 3, 1895.
Foreign Affairs before the overthrow) he
had better resign when I told him to. He,
as one of the Cabinet, had committed a
great crime of treason, in fact they all (the
Cabinet) had turned against me and
followed Thurston. the agitator's, instruc
tions, and allowed themselves to be guided
by him until the overthrow of my throne."
The above is the Queen's view of the
situation at the time the American forces
landed, and will be regarded as ample
proof by many that the overthrow was due,
as the Queen says it was, more to the
treason of her Cabinet than to interference
of the American forces. This view of the
case was never presented to Mr. Blount.
The Queen had two sets of traitors to deal
with at the same moment, her own Cabinet
and Thurston's friends.
While the Government has easily put
down the revolt, it does not take the most
hopeful view of the situation. This is due,
to some extent, to the excitement of the
moment. Mr. Dole and his Cabinet are
disposed to adopt a most lenient policy
toward those captured in arms and those
suspected of sympathy with them. But
they are urged by those who have much at
stake here and desire to remain, to use
severe measures, in order to prevent an
other revolt.
The natives have shown no fighting
qualities. Of the 700 men called out by
Nowlein, the military leader of the revolt,
only about 125 .responded. The rest waited
until they could see how the few suc
ceeded before they would Join the move
ment. The leader of the first squad on
picket duty got drunk, and his men had
taken more or less gin. At the same time,
the natives are ready, if led by white men
and they see that their party has the up
per hand, to join in another revolt on gen
eral racial grounds.
It now appears that the revolt was
planned by white men, Gulick, Seward and
Rickard; that the money for guns was fur
nished by white men in San Francisco;
that the vessel which brought them was
owned by white men; that white men
went out in a steamer and landed the
guns ; that two half-whites were the chief
commanders of the insurrectionist crew,
and last, only a fraction of the natives re
sponded to the call to arms. Nowlein, the
Commander-in-chief, says that he was in
formed positively by his white royalist
friends, that if he could bring a force of
natives into the town, the citizens' guard
of 500 trained men would not dare come
out, and the "missionaries" would yield !
at once. He believed these statements and
acted on them, only to discover that the
citizens' guard instantly turned out, and
300 more whites joined them.
Even the absolute abdication of the
Queen does not settle matters. The na
tives are thriftless, and in the present com
mercial depression are suffering to some
extent, as they have no earnings laid by.
They are told and believe that a change in
the Government will bring better times.
If, now, those in revolt are not punished
they will believe that the Government is
afraid to act severely. Leniency with them
means defeat. On the other hand, some
intelligent men believe that they will not
be involved in another revolt if allowed to
go without any punishment.
The examination of witnesses under !
martial law discloses the fact that there
are many white men who wish a change of
government in order to reach the spoils. !
They are tired of missionary government
because it is economical. There is a
bonanza in the opium and Chinese gam
bling business, and the men who control
I the police ana Custom-house are in the !
way of making large perquisites out of it. I
These dissatisfied whites now believe that
i if they can control the muive vote or up
i set, the Government an opening will be !
made for boodle. The great majority of J
whites, however, stand by the Government
without reservation.
The attitude of British Commissioner
Hawes toward British .subjects who were
involved in the revolt is very satisfactory
to the Government, as he promptly tells
them that if they have got themselves into
trouble he will not help them, and he
knows that they are having a fair trial.
He refuses to embarrass the Government
by useless protests, and impresses upon
British subjects the danger of fomenting
treason here.
Mr. Willis, the American Minister, is
also disposed to aid the Government, but
it is the impression that he is constantly
in fear of doing something which will pro
voke Cleveland and Gresham. The evi
dence in the treason cases is so clear he
cannot dispute the guilt of American citi
zens charged with the crime, but he has
raised some questions as to the jurisdiction
of the military court to entertain these
charges.
On the 19th inst. it was rumored that the
Government was about to ask for British
protection. Minister Willis' attitude was
the reason given for this radical step. It
was stated that the representative of the
United States had made unreasonable de
mands when he called on Minister Hatch
the day previous. A Government oilicial
was seen in regard to the matter, and he {
stated that there was absolutely no truth j
in the rumor. He said that Minister Wil- !
lis had not made any demands; he had
simply made a request in regard to some
political prisoners who claim the protec
tion of the United States.
David Kawanouakou, who was a prince
under the monarchy, was arrested on the
20th on a charge of misprision of treason.
He was afterward released.
W. W. Dixon, who was a Representative
in Congress from Montana in the last Con
gress, is in Honolulu. The Government
was informed that he was sent here by
Chairman McCreary of the House Foreign
Relations Committee to make an investi
gation and report. When interviewed by
the Associated Press correspondent he
denied the report and stated that he came
to this country merely for a pleasure trip.
The military court is still sitting. Since
last advices no important cases have been
disposed of.
V. V. Ashford, who is serving a sentence
of five years for misprision of treason, will I
probably be allowed to pay a fine of $5000
and depart from the country. Doctors
agree if he is kept in jail he will die. His
health is very poor.
The commutation of the death sentences
of the court-martial to life imprisonment is
accepted by the conservative people in the
community as the best final disposition of
the matter.
It is believed that if there is quiet for
some time and there is no prospect of
future trouble the prisoners now under
sentence will be released. In this country
the dominant feeling is one of leniency,
especially as the prisoners are well if not
favorably known here.
THE CRUELTY STORY TRUE.
Extracts from a letter of a Friend of the
Ex- Queen.
A sympathizer with the ex-Queen who
is at present residing in this city received
a letter yesterday, giving interesting gos
sip from Honolulu, and particularly in
reference to the military tribunal which
tried and sentenced the captured Htyalists.
Extracts as follows:
"The opera-house, which as you must
know was burned, is now reported to nave
been set on fire by royalists who were in
censed against W. G. Irwin for subscribing
money toward the expenses of the guards
hired by the republic to hunt down the
insurgents.
"You will doubtless hear of the cruelties
practiced on the friends of the ex-Queen by
the authorities in their efforts to find some
evidence against the captured rebels and of
prisons crowded with men arrested on sus
picion only. Some were confined almost
without food for twenty-four hours and
others were kept in the jails, two in a
cell, for thirty-six days, no chaoce being
given them to provide for their families,
look after their business affairs or even
consult with their friends on these sub
jects. Every known method of extorting
confessions was used to force them to give
incriminating evidence against themselves
so as to give the military tribunal grounds
for charging them with treason.
"On their failure to find out what they dp
sired, some were deported and others
liberated, the former leaving by the Aus
tralia, which sails to-day.
"On the steamer goes a refined and accom
plished young American girl who felt the
weight of the Marshal's displeasure. While
talking with a number of ladies she ex
pressed sympathy with the ex-Queen in
her unfortunate plight, and the matter
coming to the ears of the authorities, she
was dragged, in company with her mother,
to the common prison and roughly ques
tioned by the Marshal. He lecturei her
so coarsely and frightened her so much in
warning her that she must never express
her sentiments again that she was taken
down with nervous prostration and goes
to San Francisco to recuperate.
"It has been discovered that the author
ities are buying up all the copies of the
local papers containing the ex-Queen's
statement before the military court that
they can rind. The court did not intend
to let the" statement get abroad, and Paul
Neumann is accused of giving it out. It
made a sensation in Honolulu and the
authorities are fearful of the sympathy it
will create, both bore and in the world at
large. It was courageous and straight
forward and shows her to be a good and
great woman with the interests of her un
fortunate people at heart.
"You will probably hear by the next
steamer that Neumann has been arrested
for this, and also on account of the speech
he made before the court, denouncing the
methods of the republican Government in
trying the arrested rebels and their sym
pathizers by military law on offenses
committed before martial law was estab
lished. His utterances were looked on as
treasonable and the members of the tri
bunal sat aghast as he spoke.
"He offered to defend all the natives and
the poor v.iiite prisoners without pay, and
made a splendid defense of the ex-Queen.
He ended by intimating that when the
civil courts are once more established the
authorities will have to defend themselves
against heavy 3uits for damages."

Honolulu, Feb. 23.— iper steamer Aus
tralia].—Charles Creighton, who was one
of the Attorney-Generals during the reign
of royalty, is one of the men wl i was re
i leased on condition that he leave the
country. The Call's correspondent inter
viewed him in regard to this matter just
before he sailed on the Australia to-day,
and in response to the query, "Can you
.furnish a copy of the document you hud to
sign to obtain your release?" he replied:
"No. 1 cannot. I tried to obtain one,
but it was peremptorily refused me. The
j circumstances were these. There were a
large number of us in jail, and after six
weeks of close confinement we were will
ing t6 do HMV'hiug, 'Mp;ii anything or say
I anythins to obtain our release. I cannot
i gay that we were positively ill treated, but
we wero kept separated, only being allowed
four hours a day in the yard, and not
allowed to speak with one another. We
could not complain of the foW or oth-er
accommodations, butevcry thing was made
) irksome for us. You may tell the <'\r.r.
I that six weeks of this treatment would
• take the starch out of any man.
"We knew not what was to be done to us
or when it was to be done, whether we
were to be tried or not, neither was any
charge preferred against us. About a
week since, an intimation was conveyed to
us that if we desired to leave the country
we could do so at once, but under the con
dition that we did not return without the
permission of the • Minister of Foreign
Affairs. With others, I was in that condi
tion that I would almost have signed my
own death-warrant to get out of that
prison. Accordingly I intimated to the
Warden my willingness to meet him half
way in the matter, and was soon after
ward ushered into the presence of the At
torney-General, who presented, for my im
mediate signature, a document of which,
as nearly as I can remember, the following
is the substance, the document itself be
ing type-written, and hardly covering one
sheet of paper :
Whekkas, The undersigned, Charles L.
Creighton, a resident of Honolulu, island of
Oahu, is now confined in Oahu jail upon the i
charge of complicity in the recent rebellion, :
and whereas the said Charles L. Creighton is'
desirous of leaving the island of Hawaii on or j
before February 23, 1895,
Now. therefore, permission is hereby given
the said Charles L. Creighton to do so, upon |
the condition that he does so leave on or be
fore said dale at his own expense and without
recourse on the republic of Hawaii. It is
further agreed that during the absence of said
Creighton from the republic no charge arising
out of his complicity in the late rebellion will
be made against him by or for the republic,
and that the period of such absence shall be
entirely at the pleasure of the Minister of
Foreign Aflairs of said republic. " •■
At 3 o'clock the wharf was crowded
with people. The ladies were out in full
force and their white dresses presented a
pleasing contrast with the dusky features I
and gay colors of the venders of flowers, \
I wreaths and bouquets. The band played j
popular American airs. No one would ever
judge for a moment from the scene that i
there ever had been such a thing us a revo
lution. The decks of the steamer were
simply covered with ladies and Captain
Houdlett, in white and gold, was In his
element. Among the exiles on board were
Charles Creighton and A. P. Peterson, the
latter also an ex-Attorney-Geileral/ Al
though they are banished from the islands j
for life, they expect to return before many !
years. All the royalist sympathizers con
gregated about at the steamer to bid good
by to the refugees, . whom they covered
with flowers. Fred Wundenberg, ex-Clerk
of the Supreme Court, was one of the latest
"suspects" to come aboard, literally covered
with, flowers, as was also his stateroom.
The steamer was now ready to cast off its
lines and then the last good were said.

THE PHILADELPHIA'S EXGiyjES.
A Disabled Cylindrr Head the Cause of
Her Slow Trip to Hawaii.
Notwithstanding the repeated statements
of naval officers that the engines of the I
cruiser Philadelphia are all right and her (
slow work during the last run down to the i
Hawaiian Islands was due to foggy weather I
and a foul bottom— a remarkable condition !
for a crack war vessel just from a navy- I
yard drydock, she lies at Honolulu with
her starboard engine on the sick list.
Her speed of ten knots with the port
engine and three knots with the starboard
machinery was a sad mystery to her !
engineers, who, while insisting that bad •
weather above and barnacles below were j
the cause of her long trip, held to the !
theory that the propeller was either j
broken or foul, something wrapped around i
it— ?trin^3, literally.
On arriving at Honolulu the machinery
was taken apart and it was learned that j
one of the starboard cylinders had broken i
down, the head being c.ompletely disabled, |
rendering the starboard engine useless, j
This failure of the machinery to drive the j
vessel ahead to her destination so soon
after leaving Mare Island was considered :
an item of information not for the public.

Los Akgkles, March 2. — Two days have

the pavilion both day and evening. The
unusually tine display this year of citrus
fruits is attracting much attention among
the residents as well as the many visitors

permanent exhibit in their building on
Broadway, but the special display has met
with such success that the annual citrus
fair may be expected in the future as a
permanent institution.
FOLSOM CONVICTS
RUN FOR LIBERTY.
OOntinxted from First Pag'..
Guard Brown yesterday afternoon in broad
daylight by running into the brush in the
vicinity of Robbers' Ravine, was an added
incentive to the break of to-day, and it was
solely due to the vigilance and accuracy of
aim in firing displayed by Guard George
Ellis that to-night fourteen desperate
criminals are not roaming at large.
