It being 5 o'clock the Court adjourned till next morning. MORNING SESSION. The Court opened at 9:30 this morning. J. Nawahi was tho first witness: I know the defen dants. I also know McEvoy. I havo known him for several months. I have seen him somo- fimes at Bush's place. Have heard him talk politics to Bush. Talking about the situation here. On the I4lh of August, I was at my home. I know it, because, it was the birthday of my child. Wo had a feast there that day. My time was occupied at home. It was ray son Alexander's birthday. Ho was then 11 years old. I was not at Bush's homo ou that day. By looking at McEvoy's features his vilo disposition was disclosed to mo. I was told by Wilcox not to have any relation with McEvoy because, he was a spy This was on tho 17th of August.thisyear.lt was tho day after the birthday. Wilcox told mo so at Bush's place.. Prendorgast also told me that McEvoy was a spy. At another time outside Sing Loy's store on King street Prendergasfc and I were together with McEvoy. Ho talked about my son, who was suspected of being a leper. Mc Evoy said d tho Marshal. Talking about tho missionaries, he said d the missionaries, they are no good. The next day I met Hitchcock on Richards street. The Marshal asked me why I had been speakin" bad about him iu tho presence of one of his officers. -Then 1 new that McEvoy must be his informer. Ihis all happened in July after the republic was formed. Sinco tho 17th of January when I was told about his occupation, I never trusted him or reposed confidence in him. I have never discussed schemes in his presence to overthrow the government. What ho has been testifying to is only made up by himself On tho 14th of August at Bush's house I did not stat,to him that 1 had received bad news, because thero wero traitors in our camp 1 wasn't thero at all on Hint rW bach n conversation never took place. . Wu have never conversed together in Bush's honse in one room without anybody else being present. I never said that TVil- were traitors. It is quite custom- ar that people come and ask me "what's the news." I never re member to havo told anybody, that tho men mentioned wero traitors. I never spoke to Mc- .fcivoy about taking immediate action. I don't believe, that I ever spoko iu English in presence of McEvoy. I never spoke about cro..; . natives with si and cane-knives, and making them light the haoles. A man plied with gin would hardlv be a good fighter. Crick never told me that Captain Rooke of the Champion had ever promised ns r . . f.uiwu us substantial aid. Crick never told thatgnards should be posted the Kichard street gate and a rush made on the palace. There have been no talk in regard to all these schemes. McEvoy is the first, who ever stated so. I have been writing for the Ka Lin. Tush was the chief. I acted un der his instructions. We always advised the natives to keep peace nntill wo receiv ed an answer from the United Suites. So Jar no answer has beep received. I hve writ ten articles signed by myself ad vising the people to keep the peace. The lnau at my house on the 14th of August was in the afleru on. I went no where on mat date. an uiesen it r t .- - is a j strnner to me. D. Y Pua , . . , . . , brSt him to my house a while - nS.

Ilia he was a membe" of tho Aloha Aina. I told him he would be welcome to the house. My niece played the piano, he played the violin and I nlaved ihe flute. He praised the playin of tho girl and askec: when she would coino out again Next time he came Mrs. Nawah ana me girl were mere, l was T.I 1 r 1 T" not. I told my wife that I would not have Van Giesen there. He was "no good." I did not tel Yan Giesen that he should no come to my house. Since then I havo had no conversation with him. It was about the timo of tho proclamation of the republic There was no meeting at Bush's house between Bush, Nawahi tno J-iano ooys, van Lriesen and other natives. There have been no meeting between us at all. We always advice the natives to wai until tho answer to our protest has been received. We have no got it yet. Bush never advisee the natives to sell thoir lands etc and buy arms. That statemon is made up by Van Giesen. never spoke myself to that effect. Van Gieseu Whs fired in Septem ber. He came ag.iin and I called Bush's attention to him and he was fired again The last time was abouHhe 213th of September i never saw unck Having a map of Honolulu. We never mado plans in the presence of Van Giesen. Tho premises of Bush are perfectly open. Anybody can go from one room to another. I saw no meetings in Prendergast's room. If the door was closed the room would bo dark. There was no talk about overthrowing tho government or attacks to be made on different buildings. I have not seen Van Giesen since he was fired out until I saw him hero. I have had no talk with him about the Aloha Aina League's money during Novem ber. I have never at any time had any talk with him in regard to that matter. At 12 o'clock tho Court look a recess and the case was opened again at 130. The cross exam ination of Nawahi was continued among other witnesses the de fense will call Mrs. Nawahi, Miss Nawahi aud a native woman liv ing on their premises. St. Louis College.

Hawaiian Hardware Coinp'y. November 27, 1S9L If we are to judge the popu larity ot an article by the number in actual use Haviland Chini stands ou the crest of a popular wave. The rervson for it is tho low price at which it is sold.
