THE "HOME RULERS"
Delegate Wilcox's Speech at the Honolulu Convention. AMUSING HARANGUE CONDEMNS THE ANNEXATION AND PRAISES THE QUEEN. Extraordinary Sentiments Expressed by the Legislative Representative of the Territory. ? ?la! Otrnup-ihdenre of The Kvrning Star. HONOLULU, T. H. July 8. 11)02. The homo rule republicans are holding their territorial convention here today. They have already nominated R?bert VV. Wilcox as their candidate for delegate to Congress again, and are taking a more radical stand In the matter of the race issue than they did even in the- last campaign. It has taJten only .a few days of work by Wilcox to line the party up for another campaign in which ' "down with the whites" and "Hawaii for the Hawalians" will be the crlcs. The convention was aroused to cheers by a speech from Delegate Wilcox that was most remarkable, coming from a member of an American congress. It denounced the an nexation of Hawaii as grabbing of the Islands, and it scored the '"missionary par ty" of Hawaii as severely as Wilcox knew how The following is a free translation of the remarks made by the delegate in this ? (dress, which sH'ias to make of Hawaii a pn-ail Ir. land anil of the delegate from the islands a s >rt of "Irish member" in the .American House of Representatives: Unwilling Americans. "Aloha nui to all of you. We are now In the family of the great I'nited States, not by our own desire. They took us as a lion takes a lamb, of course, as you all know, I was elected as your delegate to Con gress. It was a hard struggle to win, but we conquered in the end. That position 1 hold until March. P.Htt. "When we first lost our country and when the monarchy was overthrown and the (.nited States landed troops on our shorts. America did not want us to be come annexed. It was through the mis-, sionarles that we lost our country and our monarchy. During the time the Her Kalai aina and the Aloha .Vina societies were start''.1 and John Klch irdson, William Auld, ?I K. Kaulia and D. Kalauokalani went as delegates to the I'nited States to look after our rights. "Thei: c ime the war with Spain and the Vnlted States grabbed our islands. Three commissions from the states and two from h.-re Wi r.' til in favor of annexation. Well, the missionaries managed to get nearly all the iand and now they want the rest. All "Cut and Dried." "All the old folk clubbed together to send a lelegate to look after the rights of the j? .?ple. and 1 went there as your delegate, not to be roasted by the missionaries. Rob ert M. Boyd contributed J+?l toward this fund. J'rince Kalanlanaole contributed some, as did the old folks. When I got to W tshington I found everything was already cut and dried before my arrival. "I was asked concerning the property qoalMratloa for voting which I preferred, the property or educational as a necessary qu ilily 1 replied education a-< I knew all th-- natives could read and write. Through me no taxes are necessary for voting, you do not have to pay them now as for merly "Th.- missionaries have tried to take away your votes, hut God would not aliow th. m to fulfill tlu- wishes of their black h. irt s. Uod, willed t that I should go to tile I nited Slates as your representative as the I'nited States wanted. Keep to your vote, one little vote Is worth every thing Th-re will be millions of dollars spent by the I nit. d States in improve ir rt-i at 1 '? arl harbor an 1 other improve m-rus. What good will all that do you unless you have a vote. Has No Enemies in Congress. "We are now recognized and known as a part rif the T nited States. I can truthfully that I have no enemies in Congress, we have n > er.-mies In Congress. The only p sc.. when I have heard any prejudice expressed against the Hawaiian race Is rinht h.-r. in Hawaii, where the mission fi'i- s ir.- all the time sending tales to the 1 r.ir- l Stat-s that we an- nobodies and erli cannibals. "Th. lire during the plague robbed the p<>or people of their belongings, and now the missionaries are wanting to rob the T ni*?1 S'at.-s of their money. They want ed me to help them and I did so. as I knew that it was for th< good of our peo ple 'h.- relieving of our poor. "A 1 the Ime the missionaries in C ingress tr\ to sti'. l ni\ efforts and my friends there got tlr. d f these constant attempts to h nd-r me and mv attempts and often drop ped th-- whole affair. Missionaries Want e 4,Haole." "What the missionaries want is a haole. a white man. You can all see what a prejudice exists right here in Hawaii against the native. On the 4rh of Jtily night there were no natives asked to re. eeive the guests The governor's own coun c.l v. is not asked. Why? Because some of them were natives. "Th.- Advertiser is like a pig pen. It is the nig Dep. Of Hawaii. I.ike hogs they do r recognize anything good. If gold were < ast In front of them they would take no notice of it ,,r of anything valuable. Kvery thing tbat is dirty ..r foul comes from this p:g I" n. (I.aughter.? They wanted to ap point a new delegate and this man was to 1 e Thurston, the chief of the pig pen. All this be.-.,use I have native blood. They w n- to alwavs see a white skin before a bla.k "II iwall had a delegate. The Philip Pines have none. There th.-v are still fight ing The President Is trying to arrange two delegates to be sent from there. Proposed Alliance With Republicans. "In Congress the missionaries have friends p.?sted to try and upset and thwart our plans all the time. It Is true that I advised you to call the party the home rule republican and to Join with the re publicans. but that was because I was so advised by my friends in Congress, and we have more friends with the republicans than with the democrats. "But. from now on. let It be the home rule party. I make no accusations against either the republicans nor the ilemocrats. l>ut we want our own If the republican >arty wins next time In the election for ?"resident, why. the country will be repub licans. or in the other case democrats, but *t- will still lw? home rulers. Likes the President. "v\ hen I was sick at Washington. Cayp less helped rne. while George Carter fought on th*. other side. I was very pleased with the President and his wife. They treated me finely. There was no ullikla there, only th- pig pen paper trying to make trouble all the time 1 was sick, and If (Jod had Hot been with me. all you would have seen would have Ue.-n my cofiln returning, hut God dl.i not want the missionaries to laugh over my dead body, so he let me come back to you. "The President has nothing to say. he or his ministers, what Congress says or does makes the law. "I asked for a training ship here be cause I know that only natives would be put on board of her. I may fall In these things, but If 1 lose I will fight again as Morgan fought for twenty years for tho canal bill. "The missionaries work against us all the time. If Christ should come down and ?ay something that was good the mission aries would say It was hot. The Crown Lands. "Before I left Mitchell of Oregon asked for a commission to be sent down here to look into the rights of the crown lands. Senator Hoar of Massachusetts was also In favor of this. The commission will see If the overthrowing of the queen was wrong. It was then the Linlted States will try anl make amends by paying her In cash. I hope the queen will get this money, but I do rot say she will. We should always wail until the tree bears fruit until we talk about the fruit. Of course, she will not be reinstated, but will get her equivalent in crown lands or money. The black-hearted missionaries are against her. I suppose if she gets the money you will say that the missionaries did it." (Cries of "Aole, aole, you did."J A Proxy. "No, God did It, but I was His speaker. I want all the delegates to tell every one to stick to the home rule party. Now the missionaries do It all, and we have little to say. Let the ayes show the vote. I want a two-thirds vote In the next legislature; then we can put our bills through. "Lias: year the other side had all the money; we had only the heart. Let us still maintain this heart. If they offer you any money take It, but vote for the home rule. Let us have all the senators home rule if we can. So much the better. No Profit in Extra Session. "If the President wants to retain Dole why, let him do it. We have the power in the house. Dole Is only like a statue. Of course, everything is not entirely satisfac tory in the house, but I am willing to re turn and try hard to do what I can. If we win the next legislature let us try and push things through. Let us do It all In forty days. There are only JJOit for the legisla tors anyway. We do not want any extra session. "About this homestead law. We want forty or fifty acres, not twenty; no man can go ranching on twenty acres. It is hardly big enough for a rat. What do want forty acres for? To drink milk. We are Ameri cans now and we want to drink milk with the rest of the Americans. "In the United States the niggers are slaves. They are not like us or the Indians who are treated as white men. They are an Inferior race, a low class composed of the worst people who do terrible things. We do not wish to mix with such a class and we are not compared with them except by only a few missionaries. A "Bag of Money." "I know there is friction in our party, and that by and by means fire. Let us pour oil on the parts that are rubbing to gether. I am going to be here In February to see If that bag of money with which they are going to bribe us is here. After we secured then we'll be happy. They think they can push us all down because they are rich and we are poor. "After I get the homestead act through to give you ail a piece of land, see that you do not sell or mortgage it Keep it for yourselves. "I have spoken much about this home stead act in Washington, ano I was advised to see that the local legislature altered conditions to conform with those on the mainland. Congress a "Gentlemen's Place." "Taylor of Colorado said that he would help us if we always had a native delegate to Congress. That is a gentlemen's place, and people should behave themselves there as gentlemen. There Is no plllkla there; It is all here. "I invite the committees to go with me on a tour from Kauai to Hawaii, so that I can tell the people what I have done. I want you all to give my respects to the country who mainly helped me to win. There is no nation like us. Ninety per cent of us are able to read and write, while In other nations only forty per cent can do so. "I am sure that Christ will be with us and rule in the next legislature. Already I have sent to West Point young Lyman and young Hons. 1 want a native boy there, and some day, I may or may not be living then, we shall see a native admiral on the Pacific coast." (Great applause). ASSAULTED BY JAPANESE. Details Received of an Attack on Methodist Missionaries. An account has reached here of the de tails of an assault committed upon some Methodist missionaries in Coria by Japa nese coolies about the 15th of last month. It appears that as Bishop Moore of the M. E. Church was en route to the town of Soo won to dedicate a church his party was at tacked by Japanese coolies who were build ing the railroad from Seoul to Fusan. With the bishop were his young daughter and Messrs. Appenztller and Swearer. All the party suffered, the bishop's pith helmet alone saving his skull from a crushing blow, while Apptnzeller was struck down by a blow from a club and Swearer, the other missionary, was struck with a piece of cord wood, which gashtd his head across the forehead to the bone, and may have permanently Injured one eye. The Japanese minister at Seoul was much annoyed at the aff;tir, and immediately put in motion all of the machinery at his com mand to secure the capture and punishment of the assailants. It does not appear that any racial feeling caused the attack. NEW WABSHIPS AUTHORIZED. Will Be Named Louisiana, Connecticut, Tennessee and Washington. The Navy Department has announced that the two battle ships which are to be built under the authority of the last naval appropriation bill are to be named the Louisiana and Connecticut, and that the two cruisers will be named the Tennessee and Washington.

The two tugs au thorized by the act are to lie built one at the Mare Island yard and the other at Bos ton.

STOLE!? CBOWNS. Theft of Head Ornaments Belonging to Monarchs. From Tlt-Blts. Of Colonel Blood's desperate attempt to steal the crown in the reign of Charles II, every one has heard. Having contrived to ingratiate himself with Edwards, the depu ty keeper of the crown Jewels, he one day Introduced four companies to whom he asked the old man to exhibit his charge. Suspecting nothing, the keeper complied, when he was at once thrown to the ground and gagged, and but for the opportune ap pearance of his son the thieves would doubtless have accomplished their nefa rious aim. As it was. Blood made off with the crown, but was promptly pursued, and, after a struggle. In which the crown es caped from Ills hold and rolled In the mud, was secured. Strange to say, none of the miscreants were punished, Blood, indeed, being later received into royal favor. Another celebrated robbery was that of the French crown jewels in 1702. After the death of Louis XVI the Jewels, which in cluded the crown, scepter and other trea sures to the value of ?500,000, were removed to the Garde Meuble, which, on the night of September 17, was myteriously broken into and its precious contents carried off. For a while the affair was wrapped in doubt and conjecture, but an anonymous letter finally put the authorities on the track of the stolen property, the greater portion of which, including the famous "Regent Dia mond." was found in a ditch in the Allee des Veuves. Champs Elysees. Yet another crown that has been stolen is that of Holland, which, in 1820, was car ried off by ambitious and successful bur glars. For over two years did the magnifi cent prize?it was valued at ?120,000? remain in the hands of these thieves, who did not dare to dispose of their priceless capture. At length gaining courage, they began to disembarrass themselves of it piecemeal, and by this means it was gradually recov ered. some of the gems being discovered in Brooklyn, U. S. A., while the remainder was found nearer at hand, in Belgium. On four occasions has the crown of Eng land been placed in pawn. The most fre quently quoted is that which happened in I.180. when Richard II was driven to this last resource to replenish his depleted treas ury. The crown, however, must either have been of comparatively little value, or the merchants of London, to whom he pledged It, adepts at driving a shrewd bar gain. for the amount received, as vouched for by the king's receipt when redeeming his regalia, was but ?2,000. Richard, however, was but following In the steps of his father, Edward III, who, pressed for money, did not hesitate to place the symbol of royalty In pledge with the Bishop of Winchester for the comparatively handsome sum of ?13,500. Henry III, im poverished by the struggle against his barons, and Henry V, by his war in France, likewise hypothecated the crown. Charles II. also, would doubtless have done so; and, indeed, the pardon and subsequent pen sioning of Colonel Blood seem to point to the fact that that adventurer, when he at tempted to steal the regalia, was acting with the king's connivance. Three Anarchists Expected. An evidence of how closely the govern ments of the world are working together to run down anarchists is shown in a communication received at the State De partment from the Turkish minister here, Chekib Bey. He states that Dlgnotl Geni tou Guisseppe, Pasquale and Cassia Car melo, three anarchists, have been expelled from Constantinople, and he desires to be informed if they take refilge here, and es pecially In case they leave the United State? to know their destination.
