HAWAIIAN uAZETTfe, J:UKdUAI, JANUARY 17 I3'3
(Continued Irom Page 1.)
It went off tamely and quietly
enough, but those who were acquainted
with the real situation
felt that the Government and the
nation were sleeping on the crest of
In the afternoon, immediately
after the House had been prorogued,
the Hui Kalaiaina marched over
to the Palace and presented a new
Constitution to the Queen, with
the petition that the same be promulgated
to the people as the fundamental
law of the land. The
matter of the new Constitution
and petition had been
prearranged,and it is stated that its
promulgation had been promised
two weeks previously, and the
member from Lahaina, Wra. White,
had been actively working up the
movement. A large crowd of
had gathered around the
Palace gates, and in the grounds
near the great flight of steps, and
natives were also gathered in large
groups in the Government Building
yard and elsewhere in the
neighborhood. The Queen retired
to the Blue Room and summoned
THE CABINET MENACED.
The Ministers repaired at once
to the Queen in the Blue Room.
She was seated at a table, still
dressed in the magnificent costume
of the morning, and sparkling in a
coronet of diamonds. -She at once
presented them with the draft of
the new Constitution, demanded
'their signatures, and declared her
intention to promulgate the same
at once.,, Attorney-General Peterson
and Minister of Interior Col-bum
decidedly refused to do so,
and Ministers Cornwell and Parker,
though more hesitatingly, joined
their colleagues in their refusal.
All the Cabinet now advised and
even strongly urged Her Majesty
not to violate the law, but she was
not to be dissuaded from her revolutionary
course. Bringing her
clenched hand down upon the
table, Queen Liliuokalani said,
"Gentlemen, I do not wish
to hear any more advice.
I intend to promulgate this
Constitution and to do it now."
Proceeding she told the Cabinet
that unless they abandoned their
resistance at once, she would go out
upon the steps of the Palace and
tell the excited crowd there assembled
that she wished to give
them a new Constitution, but her
Ministers wore inside the Palace
hindering her from doing it. The
Ministers remembered the riot at
the Court House, and the fate of
the unlucky representatives who
fell into the hands of the mob.
They knew what the threat meant,
and before it could be put into exe
cution they fled for their lives.
THE APPEAL TO THE CITIZENS.
From the government building,
the Ministers immediately sent
word down town, asking the citizens
what support the Cabinet
could expect in its resistance to the
revolutionary movement begun by
the Queen. Leading citizens of
every political complexion hurried
together at Hop. W. O. Smith's
office, and while their numbers
were every instant augmented by
fresh accessions, held a hurried
consultation as to the course to be
pursued. There was but one mind
among all those gathered together,
tradesmen, lawyers, mechanics,
merchants, were of one opinion A
unanimity of sentiment reigned
such as has not been witnessed
here for years, and it was agreed
without a dissenting voice that it
was the duty of every good
citizen without distinction of party
to support the law and the liber
ties of the people, and to resist the
revolutionary encroachments of
the Queer. A message to this
effect was at once dispatched to
A NEW STRUGGLE WITH THE QUEEN.
The Ministers now revisited the
Palace again, not without the
apprehension that their persons
would be taken into custody even
if they suffered no bodily harm.
Great pressure had been brought
upon Her Majesty to induce her to
go no farther and to retrace the
revolutionary steps she had already
taken. While her troops stood
drawn up before the Palace, waiting
for the final word of command,
the Queen hesitated and hesitated.
The conference in the Blue Room
lasted for a long time while the
result trembled in the balance.

up her unlawful project, but finally
consented with bitter reluctance to
temporary postponement of the
THE QUEEN'S SPEECH.
The Queen was a very angry
woman, when at 4 r. jr. Saturday
she returned to the Throne Room
where were assembled the Hui Ka-
laiaina with most of the native
members of the Legislature, the
Cabinet, the Governor of Oahu,
the young Princes, Chief Justice
Judd and Mr. Justice Bickerton,
the Staff, ladies of the Court,
bearers, etc. She ascended the
dais and spoke substantially as
Princes, Nobles and Representatives:
I have listened to the thousands of
voices of my people that have como
to me, and I am prepared to grant
their request. The present Constitution
is fall of defects, as the Chief
Justice here will testify, as questions
regarding it have so often come before
him for settlement. It is so
faulty that I think a new one should
be granted. I have prepared one, in
which the rights of all have been regarded
a constitution suited to the
wishes ot the people. I wns ready
and expected to proclaim the now
constitution to day, as a suitable occasion
for it, and thus satisfy the
wishes of my dear people. But, with
deep regret, I say that I have met
with obstacles that prevent it. Return
to yonr homes peaceably and
quietly and continue to look towards
me, and I will look towards you.
Keep me ever in your love. I am
obliged to postpone the granting of
the Constitution for a few days. I
must confer with my Cabinet, and
when, after you return home, you
may see it, receive it graciously.
You have my love, and with sorrow I
now dismiss you.
Mr. White replied, thanking the
Queen and assuring her of the love
of the people, and that they would
wait patiently until their desires
should be fulfilled, to which the
Queen responded with thanks, and
left the Throne Room.
Mr. Kaunamano then began in
a loud voice an inflammatory harangue
which was suppressed. He
demanded the lives of the members
of the Cabinet who had opposed
the wishes of Her Majesty, and declared
that he thirsted for bloodshed.
A few moments later the Queen
went out upon the upper balcony
of the Palace and addressed the
crowd. She told them" that on
account of the perfidy of her Ministers
she was unable to give them
the Constitution which she had
promised them, but that she would
take the earliest opportunity of
procuring it for them. (The crowd
then gave three cheers).
Rep. White then proceeded to
the steps of the Palace and began
an address. He told the crowd
that the Queen and the Cabinet
had betraved them, and that in
stead of going home peaceably
they should go into the Palace and
kill and bury her. Attempts were
made to stop him which he resisted,
saying that he would;
never close his mouth until
the new Constitution was granted.
Finally he yielded to the
expostulations of Col. Boyd and
others, threw up his hands and declared
that he was pau, for the
present. After this the audience
News was brought to the citizens
down town that the attempt to
carry the revolution through had
for the moment failed. The meet
ing, however, appreciating the fact
that the trouble had but just begun,
did not disperse, but continued
the consideration of the
emergency. A Committee of Public
Safety was formed, to which the
further consideration of the situation
was delegated, after which the
meeting, which had been animated
by one heart and one soul from the
A political meeting was held
last night at the Government
Building at which, besides the
Cabinet, Paul Neumann, Marshal
Wilson, R. W. Wilcox, E. C.
and Antone Rosa were
present, besides some others. The
Editor of the Bulletin, Dan Logan,
was sent for.
Friends of the Queen claim that
her actions of Saturdav are due
to advice furnished by kahunas.
The members of the Hui
were angry enough to tear
their Queen to pieces when they
learned that she had weakened and
would not give them their new
Constitution. They were an abject
looking lot as they marched
on King street with their hand-me-
down plug hats.
The revolutionist party held a
meeting at the Palace Sunday
morning. The Queen called in the
Hawaiian pastors who were pieseut
to pray that she might keep her
Throne, and told them that evil-minded
foreigners were trj'ing to
take it away from her.
The early arrival of the U. S. S.
Boston cut an important figure in
the proceedings of Saturday. In
the minds of many the presence of
the warship prevented the promulgation
of the constitution.

revolutionists wiBh to proclaim is

"Rev." William Hammond has been

where ho has been up to his

He has acted as a Methodist, Unitarian,
Free Will Baptist and Presbyterian
minister, as a physician and
lawyer, and has joined and been expelled
from many secret societies.
Yet, with all his misdeeds, he has
been arrested but twice and each
time escaped punishment by some
startling theatrical play at his trials.
He appeared in Yuka, Cal., several
years ago and bad with him two
women, one of whom be called his
wife, and tho other his sister. He
preached in the Methodist church
and his apparent piety won for him
high regard. Complaints began to
rise, however, of his attentions to
women of his congregation, and
while the citizens wero preparing to
investigate him his alleged wife and
sister died within a week of each
other. He collected about 2000 in
policies on their lives and
skipped tho town, leaving a
nnmber of creditors.
FIRED CANNON WHEN HE LEFT TOWN.
At South Poultney, N. Y., he acted
as a Catholic priest, and is said to
have appropriated a sum of church
money, when he left town suddenly.
In Ailentown, Pa., he is remembered
as n Presbyterian minister and a
"conscienceless liar and profligate."
In Ligonier, Ind., be appeared as a
physician, but, tho town growing too
warm for him, he went to Wolf Lake,
Ind. When he left there the citizens
expressed their gratitude by firing
At Indian Lake", Ind., a honse that

$1500 insurance on the furniture.
Here another alleged wife died and

and after six months' service was
driven ont of tho town.

arrested in Boston and taken to

found that her money was safe, she
was persuaded to drop the criminal

Hammond quit Franklin Falls, and

time in the jtnn Life Insurance
