the queen waa still insisting upon the
promulgation of the new constitution,
and supporting it by force. 1 advised
them to declare tbe qtueen in revolution
and tbe throne vacant, and at the re
quest and approval oi two of them and
tbe tacit assent of the other two, then
and there drew Up a proclamation to
tbat effect. The same afteinoon at a
meeting of about 200 citizens tbe queen
was denounced and atrmed resistance
and a counter revolution openly advo
cated, and the queen's minister of tbe
interior, John Colburn. addressed tbe
meeting. The queen's attorney-general,
Petersen, and her attorney, Paul Neu
mann, were both preeemt and took part
in the meeting. The committee on
safety publicly then and there armed
and proceeded forthwith to organize.
At 6 oclock Sunday moaning, the 15th,
1 told Peterson and Oolburn that
tbe committee intended to de
pose the queen and establish a provis
ional government; if they would take
charge of the government, well and
good, otherwise the committee intended
to take action on thtfcr own account.
They asked for 24 bcfars in which to
consider the matter. I.declinad towait,
stating the committee intended to pro
ceed forthwith. The committee met
openly at 10 o'clock, remained in ses
sion the greater part of the day, while
several government police kept watch
over the building from tbe street. Mon
day mornirig at 9 o'clock the committee,
without an attempt at concealment, met
in my office within 200 feet of tbe police
station, Marshal Wilson's headquarters,
where the entire police force was sta
tioned. While the meeting was in
progress Wilson came to tbe office and
asked to speak to me privately and we
went into an adjoining room. Our con
versation in substance was as follows:
"Wilson said: 'I want tbis meeting
stopped,' referring to the mass meeting
for the afternoon.
"I replied: 'Can't be stopped. Too
"He said tbe queen had abandoned
tbe new constitution idea.
"I replied: 'How do we know Bhe
will not take it up again? She aaid she
"He said: 'I will guarantee she will
not, even if I have to lock her up to
keep her from doing it, and I'll do it,
too, if necessary.'
"I replied: 'We are not willing to ac
cept your guaranatee as sufficient. Tbe
thing has gone from bad to worse until
we are not going to stand it any louger.
We are going to take no chances in the
matter, but settle it now, once for all.'
"Wilson has since stated that he im
mediate:;,' reported to tbe cabinet and
advised arresting the committee, but the
cabinet were afraid and reiused to allow
it. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon, Mon
day, 16th, a mass meeting of 3000 un
armed men was held within a block of
the paiaoe. The meeting was imbued
with tremendous enthusiasm. It unan
imously adopted resolutions declaring
the queen in revolution and authorizing
tbe committee to proceed to do what
ever was necessary. Police were pres
sent, but no attempt waa made to inter
fere with the meeting or to make any
arrests. Tbe meeting adjourned amid
most intense excitement and tbe citizens
dispersed, awaiting tbe further call of
tbe committee.
"While the meeting was in progress
another meeting was being held by the
Royalists within a block of the armory
which adopted resolutions in support of
the queen. Never in tbe history of
Hawaii had there been such a tcnso
condition oi mind, or more imminent
expectation ol bloodshed and conflict,
than after the adjournment oj the two

committee, landed troorte w.'rioli were
distributed in three parts "bf ''!;e c:tv,
instead of being rrfhssed at one point as
stated by Blbunt.
"In support of the third proposition,
during tbe few weeks prior to the revo
lution, Colburn, minister of the interior,
was one ot tbe leaders oi the political
Sartv opposed to me and openly and
itterly hostile to mo personally. The
first intimation of the revolutionary in-,
tention was given to the queen at 111
o'clock of tbe 14tb. Colburn came to
me greatly excited, told me the queen'B
intention was to promulgate a new con
stitution, and asked my advice. I said :
'Why do you not go to the members of
your own"party?' Me replied: 'I have
no party. Those who have been our
supporters are supporting the qUeeu.
The down-town people (referring to tbe
merchants) have no U&e for me, and tin
less the members Of your party and
other citizens will support us we are
going to reeign right away.'
"Ac 1 O'clock tbe same day I met all
the members of tbe cabinet. They had
just come from an inteiview witb tbe
queen, at which she announced her in
tention of promulgating a new constitu
tion and demanding tbeir support. They
stated she threatened them "with mob
violence, whereupon tbey immediately
left the palace, some going out by sep
arate entrances. While we were talking
a messenger came from the queen re
questing tbem to immediately return to
tbe palace. Peterson and Col
burn positively refused to go, Btating
they did not consider their lives safe
there. I shortly afterwards started
down town, but was overtaken by a
messenger asking me to return, which I
did. Tbey asked me to ascertain what
support tbey could expect from the citi
zens, and formally authorized me to
State the condition oi alTairs to the lead
ing citizens and in tbeir behalf call
fot armed volunteers to resist the queen.
I immediately proceeded to comply with
the request and, with the assistance oi
others, within an hour or two there
after, about m leading citizens Signed a
written statement agreeing to BUpport
tbe cabinet against the queen by force.
Later the same afternoon Colburn in
formed me they bad finally gone to tbo
fialace and bad a stormy interview with
he queen. He told me ue had no con
fidence in hie colleague, Peterson, who
he believed wae playing double With
bim, and told me to beware telling Pet
erson anything further. He said while
tbey were discussing tbe matter With
the mieen uho said in reply to an objec
tion made by Peterson: 'Why did you
not make thia objection beiore? You
had tbe constitution in your possesion
for a month, and raised no objection
to it.'
"Colburn further stated that a cau
cns oi their party previous to Friday
night, one of the members of the exec-
Utiue, Kalanua byname, said if he could
establish a new constitution iie
would die happy, if he could kill five
white men before dying. The queen
was furiously angry at the refusal of the
cabinet to join in promulgating the con
stitution and publicly denounced them
thereior. When the queen made an an
nouncement of her failure to promul
gate the constitution, two leading royal
ist members of the executive, one on
tbe throne steps and one on the steps of
th« building, addressed tbe assembled
crowd, denouncing tbe cabinet as
traitors, and said tbey wanted to shed
blood. One of them included the queen
in hie denunciations. During the en
tire time between noon Saturday, the
14th, and the afternoon of Tuesday,
17th, when the provisional government
was proclaimed, the queen's cabinet was
without a plan of action and did prac
tically notbing but rush about tbe city
consulting with various foreign repre
sentatives and citizens of all parties as
to what tbey would better do, begging
the American minister for the support
of American troops against the commit
tee of safety, and securing from the
queen a declaration that she would not
again attempt to abrogate the constitu
tion, which tbey hurried into print and
distributed broadcast to try and appease
the indignation of the citizens and
break up the proposed mass meeting.
"In support of tbe fourth proposition,
the essential factor of judging whether
the force of the committee waa sufficient
and their confidence well-founded, is to
know what tbe same men, under simi
lar conditions, had done under previous
circumstances in 1887. The king, by
the manipulation of tbe electorate, en
croached upon popular rights and ob
tained autocratic power over tbe people.
He was supported by practically th<
same persons wbo now conttitnti
tbe Royalist party in Hawaii. Tbe situ
ation then crystallized the oppositiot
into an organization of practically tbi
same men wbo organizod and now con
stitute tbe provisional government. Suet
organization waa formed with tbe openlj
avowed intention of wresting from thi
king hii powers and dethroning him
Tbe executive committee of 13 in con
trol of the movement called amass meet
ing. Resolutions were adopted denonnc
ing the king and demanding tbe grant
ing of a new constitution depriving tbi
king of all personal power. Tbe resolu
lions were presented to tbe king by t
committee, who, unarmed and alone
proceeded direct from the meeting to tin
fortified palace, with an ultimatum the l
be comply with the demands within la
bours or take tbe consequences. Thi
king was then in absolute control. Hit
military strength was greater and tht
control of the public buildings unori
complete than that of the queen in Jan
vary last. He did not tire a shot, sub
mitted to all tbe demands, disbandec
tbe troope and turned the whole contro
of the government over to the revolu
tionary party, who, in conaideration o
bis abject submission, allowed him t<
continue on the throne iv a hgureheac
"In 1839, while the same men whe
now constitute the provisional govern
ment; were in control o! the* king'i
government, a conspiracy v.ac organi/.ec
among the Royalist supnnrie-i by the
king and Liliuokalanl for the ...eithro*
of the cabinet and the restoration of tbi
old royal power and constitution. The
conspirators took tbe cabinet by sur
prise and on the night of July 29th took
possession of all the artillery antl forti
fied tbe palace. The regular troops, by
order of the king, refused to assist tbe
cabinet, who called upon tbe whole
mulitia and white citizens for assistance.
The call was promptly responded to.
Fighting opened at 9 o'clock in tbe
morning with less than 30 cabinet Sup
porters in position in front of the palace,
which number waa later increased to
about 500. The' Royalist revolntioniata
opened with a furious tire, With both ar
tillery and email arms. Within ball
an hour they were driven from their
guns. Seventeen were killed and 12
wounded. Before dark all of tbem were
lispereed or captured, while not one of
the cabinet supporters was injured.
"Sucb is tbe undisputed record of
events under two occasions When tbe
Royaliets and the organizers of tbe
provisional govern ment t ante. ato armed
conflict, when there tad been no Bug*
geatlon of support to either side by auy
OUteids power. Under these circum
stances I submit that the burden of
proof Is on those who Claim {hat the or
ganization of the government cannot
successfully carry out the revolution in
"It is unnecessary for me here to
state the details of the bitter constitu
tional conflict which bad been carried on
between the queen and tbe legislature
during the seven mouths prior to Janu
ary last, or to speak of the Intense indig
nation existing among all classes of
Citizens by reason of open and successful
alliance of the queen with the opium
and lottery rings. Tbe political liberties
of the people were trampled upon and
their moral set.se shocked. It simply
needed the added provocation of an ar
bitrary attempt to abrogate the consti
tution and disfranchise every white man
in the country to spontaneously crys
tallize (he opposition into a force that
was irreslstable.
"In reply to the sneer tbat the per
sona taking part in the movement were
'aliens,' I would Bay every man by the
laws of the country was a legal voter
whose right to the franchise by the
proposed constitution would have been
abrogated. A large proportion ol (hem
were born in the country, and almost
without exception those who were not
born there had lived there for years,
owned property there and made it their
home. They Wero the men who built up
the country commercially, agricultu
rally, financially and politically, and
created aud made possibls a civilized
government therein. Tbey were and
are such men ac today are the leading
citizens of the most progressive com
munity of the United States, with in
terests as thoroughly identified with tbe
interests of Hawaii aa are the interests
of native aud foreign-born citizens in
similar communities in this country
identified with it."

New York, Nov. 21. —A special from
from Washington to a morning paper

to some of the more flagrant misstate
ments contained in Blount's report, and
his bold accusation of untruthfulness
againßt the eit'tiyirltiiigiiofler, has aiven
great Offno** to certain officials of the
administration who are supposed to

secretary of state. The indignation of
these gentlemen is so great that tbey
do not hesitate to intimate that Thurs
ton's passports will be returned by the
president, i'eis accused of the viola
tion of all known rules of diplomatic
etiquette, ami there ie a loud demand
from the state department clique for his
punishment. It cannot be learned to

provisional government.
He Wnntod to Do All He Conld for the
Hawaiian People.
Boston, Mass., Nov. 21.— Ex-Minister
Jobn L. Stevens of Hawaii arrived in
tbe city late this afternoon from Augusta,
Me. His nephew said .Stevens asked
him to state that he should not hold
any interview with any person regarding
the Hawaiian situation at present, as be
was not prepared. He wishes through
the Associated Press to warn the public
against any statement which may ap
pear in print coming from bim, as it
would be entirely unauthorized. He
will outline his position tomorrow even
ing in a lecture at West Somerville.
Notwithstanding this statement,
Stevens in conversation with friends to
day said bis desire from tbe start has
been to do all he could for tbe Hawaiian
people, who are now passing through a
state of excitement to be compared to
nothing except the state of tbe people
of tbe north during the first two years
of the civil war. In alluding to the
landing of tbe United States marines,
be said even bad no request been made
to him by tbe head of the provisional
government, marines would have been
landed to save the city from the danger
of fire and plunder. In doing this he
acted under tbe last instructions touch
ing the subject Issued by the state de
partment, tbe letter of Secretary Bayard
to tbe then minister and commodore of
the United States fleet.
Stevens added that be was firmly de
termined, no matter what others might
do, not to treat the subject from a po
litical, much less a party standpoint.

He Doea Nat Believe the Statement! In
Bldont'e Kepori.
Nbw York, Nov. 21.—1n an interview
ex-Secretary of the Navy Tracy today
said: "I do not believe tbe provisional
government was established by the aid
of troops from the Boston, or that the
United Statea is any degree responsible
for tbe overthrow of Liliuokalani. Just
before bis death Captain Wiltae of the
Boston told me his marines were lander!
for tbe sole purpose of protecting Amer
ican citizens and American interests.
There were no instructions, be told me,
to do anything to support the provialonal
government. Captain Wiltae assured
me tbey were sent ashore after the pro
> visional government bad been pro
| claimed and officially recognized by
Minister Stevens."
Tracy said further: "My attention
been called to a statement by Admiral
Skerrett to Blount in reference to a con
versation with me December 30th. My
recollection of all that transpired be
tween the admiral and mveelf on tbat
occasion is very distinct. The interview
was informal nnd very brief. Admiral
Skerrett called on mi and asked me
if I bad any instructions to give
him. I replied I had nothing
further to say to him other than what
he bad received in bis written instruc
tions. He then spoke about Hawaiian
matters and I said I thought the people
of the United States were desirous of
closer relations than those existing at
the time with Hawaii, but 1 was care
ful to mention tbat wae a matter for tbe
I Hawaiian people themselves to
deal with. I did not use
tbe word 'annexed,' but the admiral
used it and 1 told him no attempt
ehonld be made by the naval author
ities to intimidate, persuadeorinfluence
the Hawaiians in any way and that
everything should be leit to tbeir own
free will."

St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 21.—United
States Senator C. K. Davis, a member of
the Senate committee on foreign affairs,
today took strong grounds on the
Hawaiian matter in an interview with a
Minneapolis Tribune representative.
He said: "The whole business has
been conducted with a deal of mystery
by tbe present administration. Tbe
public does not yet know what Willis'
instructions were or what he has done.
It tbe surmise is correct, Willis has
been commissioned to interfere in the
concerns of Hawaii to reinstate tbe
queen, an interference with the affairs
of an independent nation without a
shadow of warrant of international
Aa to the report that United States
naval forces will be used to depose the
provisional government, the senator be
lieved such en act would constitute an
act of war. Such an act by tbe preai
dent, without the authority of congress,
would be a distinct usurpation of
power," said he.
Senator Davis speak? strongly in favor
of tbe annexation ot tbe islands.

a newspaper received a letter
purporting to come from the miscreants,
declaring tbat before captured the

President Cleveland would be slashed
before they got through with their
work, and that all the detec

when this was dona they would burn

tails oi the earthquake Friday at
Kuchan, in tbe northern part of the
province of Kborassan. The town was
completely destioyed. Tbe loss of liieis
immense. A great crevice opened in the
earth, through which water flawed in
torrents. The Atreck river overflowed
ita banks. The fertile region around tbe
city was inundated. Large gardens and
extensive vineyards were swept out of
existence. The people had no
chance to save anything. Tbe
shock was so severe that tbe
largest booses in town, including
the residence of the governor, were al
most instantly topoled over, crushing
hundreds of people to death. Tbe town
had a population of between 20,000 and
25,000. It is thought at least 1000
perished. Many were carried away
by the flood. It is not known yet what
damage was done in the valley, but it
is feared many villages below Kuchan
were destroyed. A short time after the
disturbance the entire water supply of
tbe town disappeared. Tbe people
not injured fled panic-stricken
to the Aladagb mountains, leaving tbe
injured to care for themeelves as best
tbey could, The distriot in which Ku

feared it has everywhere suffered from

Origin of the Peach.
Nothing is now more universally ac
cepted than tbe fact that the peach is an
improved variety of the almond. The
almond has a thin shell around the
•tone, which splits open and shows the
stone when mature. Thia outer akin
haa simply become fleshy in the peach,
to that it is all that gives it ita specific
character. It seems now clear from in
vestigation in the history of ancient
Babylon that in their gardens, nearly
4,000 years ago, the peach was cultivated
then as it now is.
It must have been many years before
this that the peach was improved from
the almond, and this fact goes to show
the great antiquity of tbe fruit. Possibly
gardening in some restiecta, at least ko
far as it relates to many of our cultivated
fruits, was as far advanced 6,000 or 8,000
or perhaps 10,000 years back as it is to
Phoenicians, many thousands of year*
ago, as is proved by the records, had in
their gardens almonds, apricots, bananas,
citrons, figs, grapes, olives, peaches,

shows how far advanced these nations
wero in garden culturo many years ago.
