The case against tbo alleged conspirators was continued yes terday afternoon. Tan Giesen occupied the stand, and C. TV. Ash ford succeeded in getting the modern Vidocq, rather muddled. As a mutter of interest, it may be stated, that tho witness had "missed" a small mutter of 10 yoars of his life. Tho Attorney Goneral called his attention to the fact in his usual gentle man ner. This morning, the case was contiuued. A largo audience was present again, and every seat was occupied. Chief of police Crow ley and Mr. A. Bodgors a promi neot San Francisco attorney were interested spectators during tho forenoon. Tho first witness called by the Attorney-General was a man called McEvoy, an alleged detective, who has been hanging around in Honolu lu during tho last year in tho pay of tho government. Ho was for merly a policeman in San Fran cisco and retired for tho good of tho force. Ho gave his ovidenco in a very poor manner and had repeatedly to ho requested to speak louder. After being sworn ho spoke about as follows: My name is A. J. McEvoy. I rosido in Honolulu. Huvo been hero for one year. I am a polico officer in tho secrot service. 1 have boon thus employed for one 3ear. I am acquainted with Bush, Crick and .Nawahi. 1 don't know Weed. Bush lives on Printers' Lane. I have spoken to Bush often. On tho 5th ol Jul' 1 conversed with him at his rosidenco. Ho said, that if the United States or England would not restore tho Queen tho natives would fight, j Kobody elso was present. On tho Oth of July, I spoke to him again. Ho said it would bo an easy manuor to poi son anv prominent officials. Tho 14th of August I spoke to Bush, urn,, , uuW1W. x au tu inreo aoiontiauts what the news Avere. Rawahi stated that thoro were .number . of traitors to tho Quoon's cause. There were: 0 B. Wilson, J. F. Bowler, Bod ward, E B. Thomas aud Edmuud .Norrie. .Nawahi proposed imme diate actiou. Bush await tho action of tho United States in regard to the restora tion. Nawahi thought that delay was dangerous. Ho had full control of the natives and if they got amnio of giu they would fight the haoles. Crick stated that ho had hold conversations with Capt. Booko of tho Cham pion and that ho was assured that in case of uprising the Roy alists would receive substantial aid from the Champion. Bush stated that if there camo no aid from the United States thev would act. There was dissatisfaction in tho ranks t of tho government. The soldiers wouldn't finht. Crick proposed to guard Iho entrances to tho executive building, then CONSPIRACY rnsh In and capture the guns. J. F. Osmer was the next wit Use tho bayonet and shoot down ness. Several gnns were pro- any person who attempted to re- sist. I asked what thoy would do iMbo govornment building was blown up after they had posses- of sion. Uush stated that it would bo an easy matter to prevent that by cutting the electric wires be- forehand. Tho threo defendants wero present at this conversation, I have not had any conversation He was dismissed by the Mar with thorn since then. They dig- shaL He was arrested together covered that I was in the secret service and dropped me since then. The conversation on the 14th took place np-stairs in Bosh's private room. Below is the printing office. It w.-is about 2 o'clock p.m CROSS EXAMINED. I saw nobod else sruand on the 14th of Jnly. I don't know if the printing office was opened at the time. I have been several times iu the printing office and upstairs. I went up on my own ac cord and-found the three persons there. As soon us I arrived I heard the statement made and I remained there an hour. They - . spoke about other things. I know it was the 14th of August, because I impressed it on my mind. On the 24th of January I had a conversation with Bush. 1 tnndu his acquaintance on the 13th of January. Crick L met in September.

I didn't write it j myself. It was written ut Scot j laud Yard and sent to me. I ! i showed them a letter contaiuinc my resignation to Scotland Yard, That was in June. JNawaln never told me that he knew I was a spy. Bush told mo on tho 4th of September that I was a spy. Tt was a Mouday. The reason was that a paper had been taken to the government in regard to this matter. JTo refused mo ac cess to his house. 1 located the date because Lot Lane and Robert Wilcox were inside at tho time. At tho time I refer to Nawahi said that they had bad news.

OFF HIS BASE. The suggestion of tho Star that the Americans living in Hawaii would bo subject to the income tux of the United States is to say the least absurdity bordering on insanity.

A runaway took place this afternoon, when King Street was full of carriages driven by ladies and full of children going to the Kamehameha Schools.

November 27, 1S94. If we are to judge the popu larity ol an article by the number in actual use Haviland China stands on the crest of a popular wave. The reason for it is the low price at which it is sold. In the United States, where tho peo- pie are price is "Haviland Mad," thirty per cent hi the :her than it is here owing to the tariff on this ware being so much greater between France aud the United States than with Hawaii.
