Honolulu, Jan. 31, via Bsn Fran cisco, Feb. 6.—Lllaokalanl, tbe ex-queen of Hawaii, haa abdicated in favor of the republic This is by far the moat im portant ontcome of the rebellion. Tbe document was drawn up by A. 8 Hart well at the request of the ex-queen. It was presented on the 26th inst, to Presi dent Dole. The document, acoordiog to the wording, was executed freely and voluntarily. It was addressed to tbe president. Tbe queen made a plea for tbe Hawalians and others who took part in the rebellion. She hopes that ex ecutive olemency will be exerciasd In their eases. She expresses a desire to live iv ahsolute privacy benraforth. The ax-qaeen's communication-is as follows: Sir:—After full end free consultation with my personal friends and with my legal adrlio.ii, both before and siuce my detention b7 a mill tary order, In the executive bulMlag, and ant- i lug In conform !ty with their adylo.i end al'o I Samuel Nowlein. iFrom a photo.] upon my own free volition, and in pursuance of my unalterable belief and unde sunning of my duly to the people of Ha «r*ll, and to their highest and best interests, also for the sake of thope misguided Hawslians and others who have recently engaged in rebellion again«t the republic, and in an attempt to ro.to"e me to the position oT queen, whlchlhtld prior to the 17th day of Januiry, A.

The qaeeu'a abdication was not unex pected. In many quarters it •is looked upon as a ruse to secure clemanoy when eheappear* before the military court now sitting. It is not generally considered that she Is sincere iv making tbe protes tation. Since last advice* evidence of a very damaging character baa been piled around her. Bbc wag arrested on • military warrant on the 16th inst. No protest was mide when the papers were served on her, and without delay she was escorted to tho executive building and confine ! in a room where she now remains under guard. Oa the evening of tha day of arrest her house was searched and resulted in the finding of the largest amount of arms and ammunition at one time ainoe tbe present trouble began. The munitions of war consisted of 34 rifles, 11 pist-ois, several swords, a large Ex-Queen LiliunKalani. [From a photo.] amount of cartridges aud 21 dynamite bombs. The discovery ol this small arsenal aroused a grant deal ol indigna tion among all classes, and proved con clusively that the ex-queen was in I league with the rebels. The following day the premises were searched again and a number uf damag ing papers wars found. They allowed that 1/liaokalatii wna cortain of restora tion, aa ibe even went go far aa to have a uen cabinet mode oat. It was to be composed as follows: Robert VV. Wilcox, minister ol foreign affairs ; Samuol Nowlein, minister of the Interior; Charles T Gulick, minister oi finance, and O. W. Ashford, attorney general. As associate justices she named Antone Rosa and V. V. Ashford. W. H. Rickard was to be marshal. Governors for the different islands ware selected; a new constitution was pre pared by Charles T. Oulick; in fact, everything was in readinesa for the restoration. WHOLESALE ARRESTS. Arrests for treason end conspiracy have been numerous; in all there are abont 350 men under lock and key. Tbis number includes the prisoners of war. It is thought that the government has under arrest nearly all who took Dart in the rebellion. The last of the leaders to surrender was Lot L--.no. Ho ia a half white and was considered a dangerous adversary. He gave himself up on the Charles L. Carter, killed by the rebels.

It waa composed as follows: Col. William A. Whiting, Lieutenant- Colonel J. H. Fisher. Captains C. W. Zeigler, J, M. Csmara, jr., J. W. Pratt, W. C. Wilder, jr.; Lieutenant Jones and Captain William A. Kinney acted as judge advocatee. The court was called and named by President Dole, who is ol the opinion that under the present cir cumstances better and quicker results will be obtained thau if tbe matter waa left to the civil courts. OKIA I, OF TUB REBELS. A large crowd was in attendance. among tbe andlters belag United States Minister Willis and British Commis sioner ilawes. The question was raised and after deliberation the court decided to allow tbe prisoners connsel. In most cases Paal Nenman was named. The following day Robert Wilcox, W. C. Lane, James Lane, Bamael Nowlein, Carl Widemann, William Ureig, Henry Bartelman and Loals Marshall were ar raigned on a charge of open rebellion. Wilcox, Bertelman and Nowlein, the three leaders, all pleaded guilty. The others refased to plead on advice of counsel, and a plea of not guilty waa entered against their names. Paul Neumann objeoted to the jurisdiction of the coui., Ctaiuaiug that under the proc lamation of martial law the general authority of the courts of tbe republic oreated Dy the oonstitution continued, and they bad the sole authority to try persons aocused of offansea such as ex pressed in the charges before tbe com mission. The court overruled the objeotion and the trial has since proceeded from day to day. A great deal of important tes timony waa secured from Nowlein and Bertelman, wbo have turned state's evidence to save their necks. The murderer of Cnarlet L Oar er has been found. He is a half white carpenter named Thomas Poole, He admitted to a native rebel that he did tho shooting. WILCOX TILLS niS STORY. Wilcox took the stand and told his story in a straightforward manner. He olaimed that he knew nothing of tbe threatened outbreak until one woek be fore it commenced. Us said that there were not mora than 300 men at Diamond Head tha Sunday evening when tha first shot of the rebellion was fired. The trial of the leadßrs win conclndod on the 20th instint. Tne finding of ths court has not been made puolic as yot. A membsr of the court ie quoted as saying that if the death penalty be im posed the executions will take place quietly and the pnblio will not be in formed until they are ovsr with. Ths profound secrecy with which as fairs are conducted has led many citi zeos to believe thus the offenders will he clonk with in a lenient manner. In conse ausnoe of this tha members of ttje Citizens' guard have met and signed a petition to.President Dole to be Roberl William Wilcox.

Walker wni the only one who plaaded guilty. SEWARu'S CONNECTION WITH THB CASK. It waa generally suppoasd thai Sew ard purchased tha arms and ammuni tion for tha rebela during hia recent visit to San Francisco. It was proved in court that he hired a native to re main on a small island in the wait aide of Oaliu to watch for a vassal which waa expected from the coast. The schooner waa a aealer named W.O. Wehlborn, belonging at San Franciaoo. The vessel was aigbted on December 19tb, and the arms and ammnnition placed on board the steamer Waimanalo, an ialand vea eel. They aftermarda landed on Dia mond Head. Captain Daviea, master of the steamer, admitted all this and said he was approaohod firat by W. H. Rick ard, wbo engaged him to Intercept tba sealer and secure tbe arms. He was promised (10,000 for doing so. He re ceived |20 of amount mentioned. John Cumminge, formerly a cabinet minister and now under arrest for con spiracy, stated that he waa told by Soward tbat he had received a letter from the queen, telling him to go to San Fraucieco, where ho would be furuiehed funds by Rudolph Sprecksls with which tv purchase arms. A friend oi Spreok cla named Follis waa also implicated in the traniaction. When tho Australia arrived bere on the 27th a search was made for W. H. Cornwell and Rudolph Spreckels, but they were net aboard. NOWLEIN'm STATEMENT. Samuel Nowlein told of frequent meetings held at Gulick'a residence, at which plans were discussed by himself, Gulick, Rickard and Soward. The re bellion was planned for five months. The plan was to restore tbe queen and the monarchy at the same time. A new constitntion was drafted by Nowlein, Gulick and Rickard. They bad • form for a martial law proclama- TWELVE PAGES. tion all ready. Nowlein ■•id that many foreigner! bad agreed te help him, bat tbey failed to appear on tbe field. Cbarlei T. Gnlick presented a written statement to tha conrt, in wblcb be denied everything bat the drafting of the constitution. Rickard and Seward made no defense whatever. On tbe 24th a number of natives were tried oa a charge of treason. They were all oa the field of battle. Tbe fourth batch of prisoners was tried on the fol lowing day. There were 13 in the last crowd. Tbe evidence against them was conclusive. John Bowler, an Irishman, was oa trial oa the 29th on a charge of misprision of treason. V. V. Ashman ia now on trial on the same charge. In all of the above cases no verdiot has been bronght in by tha court as far as tha publio is aware of. It ia estimated tbat the commis sion will be In session for at leaat two weeks yat as there is a large number of prisoners to be disposed of. Martial law still continues in order to give validity to the verdicts of the conrt. Tbe United States steamship Phila delphia arrived laat night from San Francisco. The councils of the republic were called together on ths 16th to elect four new members and to make an appropri ation for tbe war expenses. F. A. Hos mer, Q. P. Castle, C. B. Wood and J. A. Kennedy were elected to fill the vacan cies, and (50,000 was appropriated for expenses incurred daring the rebellion. THE GOVERNMENT'S ANSWER. The government furnishod tbe Associ ated Press correspondent with a copy of its answer to tbe ex-queen. It reads : Executive BUtUiixa, Honolulu,) January 29, 18115. j Madam:—A document exeouied by you pur porting to contain anabdication and renuncia tion ot all sovereign rights hereiofoie claimed hy you hat been referred, In your behalf, lo I the president. you were under arrest the time this in strument waa signed, it la decided before ac cepting and placing the aame on file to make clear to you. Mm. Lilluokalanl Dominie, In order that no misunderstanding may hereafter arise, the views of tbe government in the mat ter. Fria'.—The execution of this document oan not o4 raken lo exempt yon In the illghteat degreo from personal and Individual liability for iuch complicity aa the investigation and trial may show that you li*d in the late con spiracy agiinst the government and Ihe conse quent to** ot life, which position la recognize*! by you in your letter. Stcond—lt cannot be conceded that such rtihti and claims a, you voluntarily relin quish, have had any legal existence since Jan. 14, lofl:i. when by yewrrmbtie announcement i hat you no longer considered yourself bound by the fundamental law of the land under whlrli you took ofllce, and by which yonr acts in attempting by Ihe mere exercise of your own will to establish a new system of government, the contract existing botween you and the people was dissolved, and all sovereign rights theretofore vested in you were loit. The statement by members of your then cabinet that they could not conlrjl your pro posed action, and their appeal to the citizens of Honolulu for assistance was the next step which lad to a resumption by tbe people of the right of government. Third—So far as your communication may be taken as a notico to the disaffected, that It Is your dee.re that the republic sha'l be recog nized b/ them at the sole aud Uwfal govern ment of the country, it Is fully appreciated. Iv this connection your unselfish appeal for clemency for those who took pait In the lale insurrection will receive full consideration. By o>der of the executive council. [Signed] William O. Smith, Attorney General. MINISTER WILLIS' ATTITUDE. Since the arrival of the Philadelphia, United States Minister Willis has assumed an oppressive attitude and from trustworthy sources it is learned tbat he has made objections, both ver bal and written, to the powers of tbe military court now sitting. He seems to take tbe same views as Paul Neumann, cnansel for tha prison ers, that offenses committed previous to the date on which martial law was pro claimed should be tried before a civil court and jury. The text of hia objec tion oannot be obtained at this time, bnt it is understood to be of a nature to cause the government more uneasiness than anything that baa taken plaoe since the beginning of the rebellion. It is understood that Willis has inter ested himself in tha cases of Louis Mar shall and Thomas Walker, both of whom have claimed the protection of the United States. Marshall is cbarged with open rebellion. Walker pleaded guilty to treason. Admiral Bsardslee is a stranger here. But little is known of bis standing to ward ths government. In close govern ment circles it is feared tbat he might co-operate with Willis and land forces to prevent the finding of the court, when it refers to Amerioan prisoners, from being carried oat. Minister Willis was seen this morn ing, bnt be declined to make any atate ment for publication. He would neither deny nor affirm the fact that ha has ob jected to tbe jurisdiction of the oourt. President Dole was seen previous to tbe departure of tbe steamer. He stated that he waa not aware that any written objection had bssn received from the American minister. He ad mitted tbat, in the course of a conver sation, Willis implied that bo wonld ob ject. British Commissioner Hawes has not given the government any trouble.
