Wilcox Scores Enimeluth Severely and Then Apologizes Generally Fearing That He Went Too Far. The afternoon session of the Homo Rulers at the Orpheum yesterday was an exciting one. Delegate Wilcox had his plan of action carefully laid out to protect Kalnuokalanl as chalrmnn and to check the reformers of the party who object to centralization and one man I power. Ho carried through his strategy without a hitch, ending with a mugnl- flcent bluff which showed that he knew the chnracter of his audience, . His opponents were quickly silenced by Kalauokalanl who declared the meeting adjourned. I The delegate's fight yesterday after- ' noon was primarily against the change I of the constitution. First, from the body of tho hall, an attempt wns made to throw out the work of the com mittee who had been appointed tho day previously to amend the by-laws and constitution by declaring them dilatory. Prince Cupid vigorously pro tested, stating that the committee had worked all night without sleep on the matter and only wanted half an hour more to bring In their report. As usual the vacillating delegates switched round in the prince's favor and tho time was granted. Then Kalauokalanl Jr.. was introduc ed to speak, he and Caypless having been made speaking and consulting members the day before by a motion from the platform. The young secre tary's role was to talk for fifteen min utes against the use of personalities and on the beauty of harmony in party politics. Next Caypless, who said his physical condition would only allow of a fey words, spoke for thirty min utes In spread eagle fashion, drawing pictures of tho "kanakky" as he des cribed the Hawaiian, standing on tho Capitol steps next to the president while the world applauded, or of Wil cox In the Senate chamber with the arms of the noblest senators In the land round his neck. Caypless concluded with throwing bouquets at the delegate faster than the Interpreter could trans late them. On the reading of the proposed amendments which curtailed the strength of the chairman and made the executive committee merely the essence of the precinct clubs and district com mittees, considerable disorder started and Wilcox made his grand bluff, In forming .the convention that he was Napoleon and could dismiss them all and form a new Home Rule party and would do so If they did not do exactly what he wanted them to do. The bluff worked on the majority and before the reformers could gain the Moor and pos sibly controvert the effect of the dele gate's speech, Kalauokalanl adjourned tho meeting. The split however is still imminent, the feeling strong against Kalauoka lanl and the delegate hardly In a po sition to take such extreme measures as he threatens. The weakness of the reformers lies In their lack of a can didate should they split and the dele gate realises his corresponding strength There Is always a latent possblity that the attempt at central power by Wil cox and his henchman Kalauokalanl may result in a Richmond arising from the reform ranks In the shape of Prince Cupid, who Is ardent in the plan to give the voters full representation In the inner councils of the party. The nomination Is not being sought after by the alll however who has several times declared his unwillingness to run as delegate. A feature of the conven tion Is a quartette of shrill voiced lady delegates from the Mormon district of Lale. According to the constitution of the party, they hnve no right in the convention at all as not possessing the right to vote nt elections, but no one has yet nad courage enough to chal lenge them. In tho event of .a close vote however, the knowledge of their Illegal presence may be used as an effective bombshell at the last moment. In tho commencement of the after noon session Wilcox began to pick the platform to pieces stating that the post olllce buildings and light houses as suggested for building In the platform were unnecessary and trenching oii tne work of the United StatP.s government. The plank was altered to suit the de legate's objections, Rlplkane pithily In forming him that If he had properly Instructed them they would not have made the blunder In the first place. Wilcox charged the local authorities with feeding the lepers on rotten sal mon nnd endeavoring to prevent tho United States government taking con trol as that would take the handling of the money out of their hands. He im pressed the minds of the delegates with the assertion that vaccination as prac tised was spreading the disease and that he had tried to stop all this. The two committees were then nomi nated as follows. On reception and conference with the commission: Prince Jonah Kalanlanaole, D. Kalauokalanl, D. Kanuha, J. M. Poepoe, J. P. Mnkal nal, D. Kalauokalanl Jr.. Committee on forming laws: E. Coy pleas, John Wise, J. M. Poepoe, C. A. Long, John Emmeluth. This brings three reform ers together on the latter committee. Wise, Long nnd Emmeluth. Caypless and Kalauokalanl Jr. , were placed on their committee by right of having been elected consulting members of the convention. - Time was then granted to the com mittee on alteration of by-laws and Kalauokalanl Jr spoke on the neces sity for unity of action, according to schedule. Caypless next drew Illustra tions for half nn hour emmlnently dis paraging to the missionary as repre sented by George Cnrter and others and laudatory of the "kanakky" in general and In particular of Wilcox, whom he represcnted as only a little lower than the angels and about on a par with Mark Hanna ns far as influence In Washington and mainland politics went. The amended constitution was then read by Ewallko, embracing the fol lowing Important changes. Delegates to bo apportioned to the precinct con vention on a basis of one to every fifty votes cast for the delegate at the last election. Delegates to the district conventions on n basis of one for ench twenty five votes cast for the Home Ruler having the largest vote at the Inst election. Providing for the election of ofllcers of the party at the present convention to serve for two years and providing for nn executive committee of one member for each representative and authorising the executive commit tee to elect a central committee of one from each district. Kalauokalani's faction attempted to refer the amended document to a com mittee of thirty. Protests would not allow of this going to vote. Emmeduth explained that this was a forward mea sure' calculated to give the electorate more power and enable then to meet present Issues. A delegate from Hu ula wanted the old order of things to go on adding that he represented forty voters of his way of thinking. Hal poole of Lale corroborated snylng-thnt he represented sixty voters who want ed to sustain Kalauokalanl nnd Wilcox Markham stated that he did not under stand and a rift appeared In the har mony house. Many delegates were on their feet nt once, the reform party keeping con servatively in their seats In their oft repeated resolve to abide by conven tional rules. Kalauokalanl stated his beief that a split In the party was unavoidable If there was going to be any more disagreement. Wilcox rose amid disorder and had some trouble In getting a hearing. Ho evidently realized the dangerous state Of affairs but temporarily lost control of himself. The end of his speech was a retraction of the accusations he had made in the beginning. "He threatened to fire any one out of the convention and keep out for good If he would not do as he told him. He accused them of fighting over Einmeluth's action and stated that Emmeluth had contributed nothing towards sending him out s a delegate. Emmeluth was the only white mnn In the convention and for a while Wilcox turned the hose thnt communicated with the vials of his wrath directly upon him. He threaten ed to send all of them outside the doors nnd then call back who he want ed and start a little Home Rule party all his own. He wound up saying that the queen could never be restored but that love of country must predominate He then apologized to Emmeluth after apostrophising Kalauokalanl as a man of cool action and judgment. "Let us forget and forgive," he concluded. Tho reformers then attempted to get a hearing but Kalauokalanl dismissed the convention until thl3 morning and sent them out with the fear of Wilcox Implanted in many of their hearts.

Exposition visitors often wonder what becomes of the fine Exposition building. That their days of useful ness are not always ended with the Exposition is shown by the fact that "Victoria House," tho 'British govern ment building at the World's Colum bian Exposition, Chicago, 1893, Is sill! in existence.
