James Kauhnne, who has been
missing since the day of tho insur

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

wound is nearly healed. He In

Evidence will probably bo brought
out to show that he was there.

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.

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
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
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

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.

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.
