Owing to unfounded minors placed in
circulation ny noyanst politicians Tester
da Mini part of lo-ilay hav e been period
of excitement that will long he recalled
in Honolulu. One of these rumors
WM to the effect that American marines
would land early this morning and that
(he px-tueen would surely lie restored
in half-past nine ; another was that the
llritish troops would land early and
gnnfd thp llritish legation and the latp
soverpign : anothpr wuh that the Ilritish
and .lapnnese would land independently
of the Americans and attempt the re
storation j another that Mrs. Doniinis
wa on the Philadelphia and later that
ha was on the Corwin for protection in
tho meantime. All these and more of
the haine kind combined in making the
day one of unpleasant suspense to every
At an early hour this morning the
natives commenced to flock into the
city from I lie valleys, and from thence
to the waier front, where they congre
gated in crowds on Hrewer s wharf, the
hoat landing and adjacent streets and
wharves, all eyes being turned on the
war vessels. To the question asked sev
eral of them by the reporter as to the
occasion of the excitPment, there was
hut one Bnswpr: "Thp Queen is going
to be put back at half-past nine " Upon
being aBked the source of their infor
mation the answer was, "We have
been told so." The Nuuanu-street leis
women were early on hand with extra
supplies of wreaths and flowers
for tho restoration which they
had been told to prepare for.
One of them even went so far as
to bet ton dollars in hard cash with a
hackman that restoration would take
place before ten o'clock.
To fuither complicate matters some
twenty-two native members of the police
force declared for restoration this morn
ing, saying that they preferred to
work for the "Queen" than for the Pro
visional Government. The loyalty of a
large portion of the native police to the
present Government has often been
questioned, but nowit is proven by their
own acts. The list of the faithless
police will be found elsewhere.
At 9:25 the people on the wharves had
their expectations aroused to a high
pitch by a bugle call from one of the
ships, and the natives expected to Bee
the boats lowered immediately, but they
were deceived : the call was simply to
loosen sails on the Champion and spread
them out to dry. As the hour set for
restoration passed and no sign w-as made
from the war vessels, tho Kanakas com
menced to wonder if they had not
been fooled again. About this time
Captains Barker and Nelson of
the Philadelphia and Adams came
ashore and were driven to the
American Legation, from whence
shortly afterwards, accompanied by
Mrs. Willis, the United States Minister's
wife, and Mrs. H. A. P. Carter, they
left for a picnic at the Pali. Of
course the crowd at the wharf did not
know this and were on the tiptoe of ex
pectation. Shortly afterwards Captain Rooke of
the Champion came to the dock in his
gig, and immediately on landing asked
the nearest boatman:
"What are all these kanakas congre
gated here for?"
"They are waiting for your men to
come ashore and assist in the Queen's
restoration," was the reply.
The captain laughed and said, "Well,
none of my men will assist at any res
About 10 o'clock the natives began to
realize that they had been sold again and
commenced to leave in two and threes
and in another hour the wharves in the
vicinity of the boat landing assumed
their tr.ormal condition.
Mnny of the natives who had wasted
the morning in ga.ing at the warships
had deserted their work for the day, so
sure were they of restoration and a con
sequent jollification, and these put in
the day ga.ing at four or five officers
belonging to the mounted po
lice who had been kept on
duty during the day or until new men
could be found to supply the place of
those who deserted. The appearance of
Captain Klemme and three or four of
these mounteu ponce gave rise to tne
rumor that the Police Station had been
garrisoned by a force of fifty men armed
with rifles. There is not a single ad
ditional man in the Police Station to-day
other than those spoken of.
During the morning Consul H. F.
Glade called on the United States Min
ister and asked if it was not possible for
him to make some announcement which
would allay the present excitement.
The Minister replied that he was work
ing night and day to try and effect a
solution of the difficulty which would
be satisfactory to all parties. Beyond
that he could say nothing.
Mr. (ilade then called the Minister's
attention to the public excitement, the
obstructions to business and consequent
loss to merchants and store keepers and
the unnecessary worry caused by his in
action, and asked if it were not possi
ble to fix some definite date when people
might expect to hear from him.
To that Minister Willis said that he
hoped to effect the solution of the mat
ter within forty-eight hour's and that he
would then be heard from. That at
present he could say nothing further
than that there was no necessity what
ever for the present excitement.
The interview then ended.
The question naturally arises from
reading the above : "With whom is the
Minister negotiating for a solution of
the difficulty f ItTs certainly not with
the Provisional Government, for it haa
not yet received any official communi
cation from the American Minister
other than the presentation of his
The rumor in regard to the landing of
British forces probably emanated from
the simple fact that one solitary un
armed red-coated specimen of the Brit
ish marine cor)s is on duty about the
Cant. mi Barker of the Philadelphia
and Captain Nelson of the Adams were
away all morning from their ships on
the Pali picnic. When they drove to
the boat landing at 1 o'clock Captain
Barker asked what was meant by the
crowd of natives on Brewer's wharf.
"They're vvuiting for the right to com
mence, answered Pilot Shepherd.
"Well, well, its a good thing we got
back or we would have missed it,"
laughingly answered Captain Barker.
"Yes, added Captain Nelson, "but
I'm afraid they will have to wait a long
Late this afternoon a rumor, that
seemed authentic, went alaiut to the
effect that Minister Willis was at work
with tha ax-Queen upon the text of a
new Constitution and that there were
points of dispute about it yet to be
settled. This story recalls the Minister's
statement . some time after he arrived,
that he had three weeks of hard legal
toil ahead of him. It finds support in
quarters which we cannot but regaril a
