Honolulu Chapter No.l R, A. M., at 7:30, Drill Co. A Honolulu Rifles, nt 7:30. Drill Leleiohoku Guards, at 7:30. twFSFarrests. James Kauhnne, who has been missing since the day of tho insur rection, was arrested yesterday at Puuloa by Police Captain Larsen. It appears that James stayed for two days and two nights back of Punch bowl and lived on bread. Ho went to his home in town hut linding no one there concluded that his wife was down at Puuloa. He found her there and stayed at that place until found by Capt. Larsen yesterday stowed away in a back room. James was wounded on the head by dyna mite while iii the buiifralow, but tho wound is nearly healed. He In tended giving himself up. This morning he was brought up in tho Police Court and charged with treason. Ho l"on, editor of the Chineso newspaper, has also been arrested and charged this morning with trea son. It will be remembered that Ho Fon was recently interviewed by a Bulletin reporter and denied that he attended a meeting of the rebels at Princess Liliuokalani's residence. Evidence will probably bo brought out to show that he was there. A white man can work in the Southern cotton fields, but thero is more solid comfort and loss profan ity iu sitting under the uhadu of a tree and looking at the darky do it. Wlloox, Loomons and Others Conv milled to tho Supremo Court. At tho opening of the Police Court this morning thu room was crowded In every part with people of all nationalities, ns it was the clay set for the examination of Wilcox and Loomens. There was also a large attendance of members of the bar nnd the press was represented by a Bullutin reporter and the Edi tor of the Elele. After some minor business had been disposed of Robert W. Wilcox was brought into Court and accom modated with a scat directly oppo site the Police Justice and nenr to his counsel, Messrs. J, W. Kalua and Paul Ncutnnnn. Tho Crown prosecutors were Deputy Attorney General Peterson, Messrs. A. S. Ilartwell and F. M. Hatch. Wilcox stood up while the chargo of treason was preferred ngainst him. He did not plead. The fol lowing evidence was then taken, De puty Attorney-General Peterson con ducting the examination: lvcawehawaii I am a police of ficer. Was such on the morning of July 30th. Between 8 and 1 o'clock that morning my duties called me at corner of King and Richards streets. Something unusual occurr ed that morning. While standing there a few minutes before 4 o'clock saw a body of armed men come along King street. I first noticed them when thev were opposite En gine Co. No. 1. One of them ap proached me nnd spoke to me. I know him as Jimmy Bojd'B brother. He asked me if I was a police ofllcer. 1 said I was. He said, I want you to get in line. I said I could not, as I had received no orders from the captain of watch. He then went back to the column. Hie bouy were then turning on to Richards street. Wilcox then came to me. He 3aid, good morning. I returned it, and then he told me to fall into line. I said I could not because I had re ceived no orders. He asked if I would be willing to go into the Pal ace yard with them. I did go. We went up Richards street on to Palace Walk and stood opposite the mauka gate of the Palace. The body ap peared to be acting under Wilcox's orders. I heard some one knocking at the gate and asking to have it opened. I heard an order given from inside. I heard Wilcox say it is I, I want to get the rights ol the government and the King. Three demands were made from outside to have the gate opened but there was no response from the inside. I heard a noise outside the gate like the loading of guns. I heard the gates squeaking as if opened. I then went inside. After we went in the gates were shut. borne one was called from the Palace to speak with Wilcox. Do not know who it was. I spoke to Wilcox and asked him to let me go out. lie took ine over to some other police in the yard and soor. after we were let out. There were two guards at the mauka gate, both Wilcox's men. Did not see any Household troops there on cuard. I saw some of them at the Palace. Saw none in the yard. Cross-examined I should say over 50 of the men had guns. The men with the guns were a little way from the gate. Between them and the gate were men without guns. Robert Parker I am Lieutenant of the King's Guard. Was such July 30th. Was on duty at tho Palace that morning. Between 4 and 5 o'clock I heard one of the soldiers call out that Wilcox was outside with his soldiers. The man who told me was one of the sentries. I called up all my men nnd stationed them at different places to repel any attack that might be made. After doing that I saw a large numuer or people coming into the Palace yard by the mauka gate. They drew up in-line mauka of the Palace. Wilcox called out for the olllcer of the guard. I said, I am here, what do you want? I went down the steps and met him. As I approached him I drew my sword. It was the only weapon I had. He bid me good morning. I answered him. He asked me where the cannon were. I told him I did not know. He then asked me to give him possession of the Palace, as he wanted to station his people thero, 1 refused him and returned to the Palace. As I entered the Pahtee I heard him telling his men to look round the Palace yard for the cannon. Not long after I heard the house where the cannon were kept being broken open, also the ammunition room. I saw the guns dragged out and fixed nt each cor ner of the Palace. While this was being dono I ran over to my superior olllcer and reported that Wilcox was in the yard. All he said was try and keep them out. Wilcox's men dragged the cannon out. Tho cnu nons placed in position were fired during tho day by men who came with Wilcox. They were Jircd In a makai direction. Wilcox acted as commander of the men. lie wns dressed in some kind of a uniform, It was not u Hawaiian uniform, The prosecution rested here, Mr. Neumann said they had no evideueo to offor for thu defense lie thought they were entitled to & dismissal as there was nothing to show tho defendant had levied war ngainst tho Government, he wci)L to protect the King and the Government. 3&& Mfi i'tlMfcfcrt rUd tlrliilr1 Ike- ' m Bl.Um CcuM Otitic' t)h ttMUM His Honor coiuitilited Wilcox lot trlnl to the Supremo Court. Loomens, the Belgian, was thou brought into court. He Is n hard looking citizen. It appears ho was thirteen years in the Belgian artil lery. Tho charge against him was treason, W. A. Whiting and Paul Neumann appearing for hi in. The prosecution conducted by Mr. Hatch presented Hie following evidence: Thomns lliona 1 am n police olllcer. Was such on July 30th. On duty corner of King and Llllha streets. Near four o'clock that morning I saw Wilcox's company coming from tlTo direction of Pa lcunn. I got to about the Chinese Theatre when Alex. Smith came to me with a loaded revolver and told me to get into line. I did so im mediately, being n little frightened. I should say there were about a hundred in line. I do not remem ber seeing Loomens there. I no ticed Wilcox, Kauhanc and Alex.. Smith. We marched down to Ma unakea street and there were two policemen whom Wilcox made fall in line. Another one, corner of Fort and King, wns also ordered in line. We went up Richards street and turned into Palace Walk, and went as far a3 rear gate of Palace. Tho police wore ordered to move up close to the gate by Wilcox. The men outside cocked their guns and I heard the sentry running from the gate. Four of Wilcox's men got over the gate and opened it. We went into the Palace yard and the police were drawn up in line near the bungalow. 1 heard Wilcox call ing out to some one to come from the Palace. I did not see any can non. Robert Parker was called and counsel for the defendant agreed that the evidence given by him in the previous case should be ac cepted in this. Additional evidence given by Parker was as follows : I saw Loomens in the Palace grounds on July 30th. It was when the guns were being placed in position. lie was talking with Wilcox. He does not belong to the palace grounds. Cross examined It was between G and 7 o'clock. He was talking with Wilcox. I do not know how long he stayed talking. That was the last I saw of him. John Kea When I came down town that morning I wont to tho Government building but found I could not get in as men were station ed there. They would not allow any clerks in. I wanted to see what was going on injthe Palace yard, so went in. When I saw what was up I wanted to gctout.but Wilcox's men would not let me. I saw a white man there, it was the defendant Loomens. I heard him ask Archie Mahaulu if they had provisions enough for the day. I saw him eo out of the Palace yard. Cross examined That is all I saw. I saw a whole lot pf people going in and out the Palace yard. The conversation between Loomens and Mahaulu took place on the ma uka side of the Palace. By Mr. Hatch Archie Mahaulu was with Wilcox party in the Palace ground. He was talking with Wil cox about the guns. I3v Mr. Neumann I wa3 only a spectator in the Palace yard. Police Capt. Win, Larsen I was a police ofllcer on July 30th. I saw Loomens on that day. It was on Hotel street, speaking to a Chinese hackdrivcr. I asked him if his name was Loomens. He said it was. Told him I was a police ofllcer and ar rested him for treason. I asked him if he had any arms, he said yes. It was a bull dog pistol and was loaded. I took him to the Station House. He said he did not know what he was arrested for. I asked him if he had been in the . . ii J iihfti iu .aflli ' ",fc- 1 MmMUIStMiMs ARh v tb ! Per "Royal Alice " 125 dayi from Liverpool. DRY GOODS!

REPLY OF THE EQUITABLE LIFE Advertisement of the Mutual Life in Daily Bulletin Aug. 12, I8B9. It was not the intention of this Agency to intrude upon the public again, but the remaikable production of Mutual Life's traveling Agent necessitates a final reply. The invitation to enter into a discussion upon the merits or demerits of these respective Companies, a discussion so extensive iu its range as to include even a criticism of the character and ability of the managers, this Agency respectfully and firmly declines. Personalities and recriminations are not arguments and will not ho indulge'd in from this Olllce. With such signal advantageo in favor of his Company, one wonders why this gentleman should pause to seek a quarrel here. Why not ily to the business centers of either Chicago or New York and make his sweeping challenge there. In the State ol New York, the home of both of these Companies, the record was as follows : New Business in 1888, Equitable $2:5,802,012 00 New Business in 1888, Mutual 12,057,256 00 New York Insurance Report 1889. Perhaps if the Mutual's claims to public patronage could be as clearly shown there in the same chaste and elegant style which has been adopted here, the verdict of New York might go with that Company next year. Without dwelling upon tho Mutual's record in the past which has been in the main a good one, its present standing, and its prospects for the future are the points that a prudent business man would inquire into. Comparisons of the present standing of these companies Iwtc already been made by me, not with figures of my own, but from statistics furnished by Insurance Itcports, Companies' Statements and other data sent to ra from the Home Olllcos of the Equitable. These figures I contend are entitled to as much credence as any figures furnished in like manner by the Mutual Life to its representatives here. To show clearly, the natural trend of these Companies towards the future I beg to submit the following comparisons covering a period of the past five years. STATIONERY ! Latest Novelties.

The prosecution rested. Mr. Neumann said there was no case whatever against tho defendant and he ought to be discharged. Mr. Ilartwell said there was evi dence to show that the defendant had given aid to the leader of the Insurrection. His Honor said there had not been so much evidence against the defend ant as in the Wilcox case, yet the section says, "being present at suoh overt act," and it had been proved that Loomens was there. He should commit him to the Supreme Court for trial. J. M. Poepoc, Alex. Smith, Hiram Kaalm, and II. P. K. Malulanl, charged with treason; Kahuakal, S. K.

Whenever a Company allows its Biirplus to become so depicted that a dead loss for the vear is stead of a gain it points to reckless financial management and ultimate ruin. It should be remembered that the Mutual is doing almost entirely a Tontine business now under the nam of "Distribution" Policies, and although it adopted this method of Insurance as far back as 1884 not one dollar of surplus has as yet been apportioned thereon. With its scant general surplus the piospects of good future dividends is certainly not encouraging. 'Comparisons of Increase in Premium Income, Increase in Total Income, New Business, etc., etc., might be made in like manner as the above, and with like results, but the abovo seem sufficient to forecast the future. That the Equitable in its 30th year should have met and passed a Company whieli kad hitherto been all conquering, a Company which had had its own way for 10 years before the Equitable was born, is quite suffi cient to account for the jealousy displayed by the Mutual's representative. 1 simply refer to the Equitable Record as an authority and claim that it is entitled to as much considera tion as the Weekly Statement, a paper issued in tho interests of the Mutual Life and which has been in circula tion hore for many years. With theso remarks I close the controversy as far as I am concerned, and positively and flatly refuse to in dulge hereafter in a discussion which on the one side seems to have developed into bitter personalities instead of open manly argument.
