FOR THK PKtSONKRS.
It took only a couple of minutes
for Lieutenant Jones to read the
record this morning. The court
room was well filled to hear the
defense of the Ilig Kotir. The
principal cotisultation'neartlie dock
was between Mr. Neumann and
Chas. T. Gulick. Mr. Neumann
announced that he would not offer
evidence for the prisoners, that he
had none. After argument a writ
ten statement would be submitted
for the record.
Out of deference to one of the
local jouruals, Mr. Neumann said
he would not consume much time.
Colonel Whiting here interrupted
to say the statement should be
filed immediately before or after
argument for defense. ,
Counsel said he considered the
course of the paper advocating haste
very questionable. Tini Star
is the paper. He used his
own time so long as he did not
worry the Court.
Mr. Neumann wanted to remove
the impression that the use of giant
powder was illegitimate. Bombs
are used in seiges and to repel
attacks. The community has been
unduly horrified and Mr. Walker
unjustly condemned. Attention
was called to the use of bombs by
loyal citizens against the Wilcox
rebels in 1889. Ilawaiins learned
from this. The Court should not
be more rigorous on account of the
As to the status of the other
prisoners, Gulick's part is ex
plained in" his statement. He is
not guilty of any crime this court
has a right to hear. Might does
not make right. Testimony against
Gulick is insufficient to sustain the
charge of treason.

has been allowed to go scot free.
His testimony cannot be taken
with any degree of safety. His
skin might be stuffed and placed in
the Bishop museum as an example
of Hawaiian valor. The Judge
Advocate has been dutiful and
fair. He will slate to the court
that the community does not thirst
for the blood of the misguided
Hawaiian, but is after the white
man. Our government has' imposed
upon the kanaka conditions that
restrict his free agency. Why
should he be forced to take an oath
against monarchy. There are
plenty of people in the United
States who think a Republic a
fraud and a sham. Ve know better.

prejudice. General good qualities
of Major Seward. War in the
United States has nothing to do
with our affair. It would do.no
good to make a plea for Major
Seward on this account, Mr.
Gulick's past record has been not
nbly good. His conduct has been
open always. He with a handful
of men risked his life in the riot at
the barracks. In the Queen
ljmma riots, Mr. Gulick was leader
in restoring law and order. He is
worthy of havinir weicht attached
to his statement against the word
of a creature like General Sam
Nowlein. What Mr. Gulick
done is not treason and death,
Mr. Neumann did not say a
single word for W. H. Rickard.
Mr. Gulick's etnletuent Is us follows;
"Fur llio Inst four months nnd more

conveyances, etc., negotiating, umongBt
other items of business, the transfer of

lein wuh the medium ol communication
between the Queen and myself und wag
frcnuently at my
her account. Mr. Rickard nnd Major
Seward came to my house frequently as
frien&H, und I arranged certain financial
matters with Mr. Kicknrd in the inter
ests of the seve'ul agencies which have
been in my hands for some lime past.
"For my own part (during tlio time
named in tho chnrge) my llnancinl
ami physical condition has . taken
thu whole of my attention, and since
the 30th of June, ISS7, 1 have abstained
fioui dabbling in politics. Local dis
turbances I lime learned of in common
with tho general public by curiont
rumors and through thu local press up
to the time of my arrest. Slneo being
brought before this court, (If the testi
mony and confession before the court
are to bu idled on,) .lam learning a
great deal with regard to current af
fairs of which I never dreamed, much
less had a hand in.
"The meetings at my house at which
plans, commissions, martini law orders,
ami the like, are said to have been dis
cussed, never look place.
"All these persons culled at my house,
hut at no time was there a meeting In
which nny plans, designs or schemes
Were broached or talked about in the
presence of Major Seward, or at any
time. The restoration of the lnnnaichy
was talked about between Ml. Rickard
and Mr. Nowlein, 1 participated in the
conversation) but no scheme or plan in
volving armed rebellion was concluded
upon or adopted.
"Tho outbreak of the revolution was
as much a surprise to me as to any
mi anger. I had neither a knowledge
of it, nor uuy expectation that it would
lako place, una certainly never agreed
to tako part in .it, either as leader or
otherwise. Whatever plans may have
been discussed between us were nevrr
accepted by us, or any .of us, In the
others piesence. The Constitution and
proclamations were written uy me at
Mr. Nowlein's rtquest, the former
being partl in writing and partly in
printed slips. I never had any knowl
edge whatever that I had been selected
as a Minister under the new Govern
ment and never was approached or
talked to about it by anyone. If im
mune was used in that connection ft
was used without my knowledge or
consent. When this matter was stated
in court on the 22d of Jauujry, 05, it
was thu first information I hud of it.
Cms. T. Gulick.
The Judge-Advocate said the
horror over the knowledge of bombs
was not mere timidity. There has
been general fear by men of proven
courage. Rebels did not have the
means of substituting a capable
Government. Unless the thing is
condemned a hundred men can
easily undertake to subdue the town
with bombs. This warfare is be
yond the pale of civilization.
A revolution to have legitimacy
must be based on real grievances.
They have made no formal com
plaint. There has been no individ
ual restraint ""or oppression.
Counsel for prisoners has no stand
ing on his contention that Gulick's
acts were not treasonable. A man
may think as he likes, and he may
talk, but when he raises a finger in
opposition to this government he
becomes a traitor. Nowlein might
say, "I only carried the papers for
Gulicic. The latter lias not denied
knowledge of the arms or of rebel
lion. Mr. Gulick has felt that he
was .secure and treason proof,
knowing the law and having great
care. i rra. commission must reach
those who -were covert. Let
judgment begin there. Nowlein's
testimony cannot be broken by a
speech and a simple document.
Gulick does not deny sending the
package for Rickard, then'au open
rebel. No explanation is offered.
Facts face Gulick. They are black
and damning, and he cannot meet
them. The last chance for the
native Hawaiian is in the wake of
this Republic. Sympathy of de
fendants ft r the natives is not ex
emplified by placing them in the
held with the certainty ol deleat.
Patriots do not begin a revolution
by a drunken carousal and a quar
rel over leadership of a squad.
These men had to be pried from
their hiding-places. We must face
this case as a debt to our country
and our posterity. Captain Kin
ney s summing closed the case.
At 1 1 :30 court adjourned to i :30.
An even dozen rebels were
brought in at 1:40. Captain
Camara is ill and the court pro
ceeded without him.

as to counsel follows :

A severe earthquake shock was
felt thoughout Oahu at twenty sec
onds past 10 o'clock Tuesday night.
It was preceded by a slight tremor
at ten seconds to 10 o'clock. The
distinguishing points in this shock
from others of recent occurance
were that a jerkey motion attended
the tremor and it.was more severe
than any other in the past several
years. It lasted 6 to 8 seconds.
The jerky motion would seem to
indicate that the shock resulted
from some unsteady force suddenly
put in motion. Professor L,yons
thinks the shock was felt all over
the Islands, and says that if it came
here from Hawaii the effect must
have been greater on that island.

"throughout the city. Houses
trembled violently. Some tourists
at the hotel and elsewhere were

they aro to try to pleaso particularly.
A woman asks tu which god hlio Is tu

what they can do for tho health of their

mills required, 1110 sliriMiJiil cane lieiug better
preiared to have Its Juieo extracted than for

The first mill Is now allun ed to open 'J-1U In.
Instead ot in. as formerly, o that the trash
now leaves the ttrst mill, better ground, than
it formerly did the second, and this without
the old timed groaning, choking, and strain

Behind the lltst and second mills wo apply
hot ater, the quantity for the jstst 12 days,
as per statement attached, has averaged 35
per cent, on the total Juice from the cone.
The trash from the last mill is cut up much

much ot It resembling saw dust, It contain
