At 10:30 Kawelo was being
cross-examined, a piece of plaster
seven feet long, a foot wide and
three inches thick fell upon the
Court table. It came from the cen
This plaster fell in sections. One
piece struck Oqlonel Whiting. An
other hit Captain Pratt. Hits land
ed on other officers. All of them
were covered with while dust.
Kor an instant a panic was threat
ened. Colonel I'isherwas the only
man who remained sitting at the
Antone Rosa, a couple of prison
ers and several people in the audi
ence shouted warnings. A few
slight screams from women were
heard. All the spectators jumped
to their feet and some ruslfe'il for
the exits. A few of the accused
became much excited.
Colonel Whiting announced a
recess for a few minutes.
Lieutenant King organized a
force of regulars and the debris
was removed speedily.
Reports spread about the build
ing and down town that there had
been a catastrophe and people came
running from nil directions.
-The Executive building was
plastered by John Howler, now
under arrest as a conspirator. He
said only a few days ago that he
was proud of the job. It looks well
and has worn well. The earth
quake on Tuesday night probably
loosened the plaster.
It was suggested at once that
Kahunas were after the commis
sion. A number of prisoners were
certain of this. There has lately
come from one of the other islands
a kahuna who is in special favor
with the Akuas and who is in ser
vice for "three months or the
At 11 o'clock the court re-opened.
The table was removed a few feet
from its old place.
This is the seventh day of the
Court Martial. It opened a few
minutes after 10.
Kawtlo was the first witness. He
was one of the party from Wainia-
nalo. John Kaulukoa was along.
We were coming to fight the Gov
eminent. I was called in the night
to join the rebellion. This party of
eight was stopped by guards near
the Pali. They then started for
Diamond Head "by the Waimanalo
road. A number of them reached
rebel camps with food. A lew of
them managed to sneak into town.
Kaulukoa gavj directions as to
' " food.
Cross-examination Kauli and
myself led party. Not armed.
Were to gel arms in town.
Maulia Was with Kaulukoa
and others ol the party from Koo
lau. I stopped on the road. Joe
Clark was sent in Koolau trying to
enlist men for Diamond Head.
Clark was mounted.
Cross examination Kauli led
us. I had been employed by
Major Seward to help land arms.
Was to be notified when time for
fighting came. We had .taken an
oath to be faithful during the trou
ble. John Liilii swore us. I started
for war with a faint heart. Kaulu
koa was not an enthusiast.
Kia was called. Was fighting
against the Government on Waia
laj road Jan. 7th. Palau induced
witness to go. Large squad with
wituess; they came from around
Kaumakapili. Saw Hipikaue there.
Did not see him fighting; he was
running. We thought it better
Hipikaue should slay, but he said it
was safest to run away. Witness
stopped fighting when the Govern
ment troops were 011 both sides.
"Aloha A iua" was password into
the lilies. Ou cross-examination
witness said that Palau made no
. reference to a Uiau being held back
of Diamond Head.
Manual Kuhao was the next
witness. He wore a policeman's
Ogat. He was fighting Government
troons. Went out because Holf Pa

He said: When at Kaalawai some
natives went away after seeing
arms. They looked around, and
when they saw no foreigners they
left. They said, " the

prevent the rebels from escaping.
Received orders from Wilcox. If
all the natives who went out there
and saw the arms during Sunday
had stayed there -would not have
been enough arms for them. As it
was, a lot of arms were left unused.
Keawe Was in the uprising.
Kauai enlisted me. Abraham was
with him. They threatened to
shoot me if I did not join. They

Kapena (Captain) Kora Went
to Kahalawai to fight. Abraham
and Kauai made me come. All
who loved their country were to go
to Kahawai. They pointed pistols
at me and said, "If you don't come
we will shoot you."
