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.

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.
