The circumstances leading up to. the
condition of affairs were partly chron
icled in yesterday's Star. It was in
this way: Itobert W. Wilcox was de
feated for -the presidency of the Aha
hui Alohn Aina, which has been in
session in Arlon hall. ,T. K. Kaulia
wns chosen over him by a good major
ity of votes. Now Wilcox's friends
say that he was defeated by the word
of Lilitokalani. Wilcox is well satis
fied of this fact in his own mind.
Last evening a new Hawaiian Pa
triotic Society was organized. The
meeting was held in Wilcox's office

Many of the Ahahui Aloha' Aina are

express surprise over the inception of
Wilcox's new party. They belittle it
and insist that it can never flourish.

THE PLAY TONIGHT.

play.picturcs the haf-eonilcal, half
tragical trials and tri'luiiutloiiK which
grow out of the fact that Mr. Buchan
an Billings is so anxious for the wel
fare of his young daughter that he
cannot bear to leave her unsupported
by his presence, even after her mar
riage, on her wedding trip or else
where. As a result, in his mistaken
loing kindness, he makes himself a
dreadful nuisance, and causes all man
ner of trouble. Finally, being a wid
ower, lie falls in with a fascinating
widow and marries her, and that set
tles the trouble at once nnd forever.

superior. "Pookela," said one of Wil
cox's followers, "means to excel, to
put foremost, or better, and that Is
the chief aim of the new society to
put foremost those things which are
for the welfare of the Hawaiians."
At last night's meeting authority
was vested in a committee, of which
Mr. Wilcox is chairman, to arrange
for the establishment of a newspaper
