Kxactly 68 days from today the queen of tbe fiesta, accompanied by her royal lord and surrounded by a large ataff of court officials, will make ber entry in Los Angeles. Sixty-six daya is not a vary long time, but a great deal has to be accom plished and many details have to be looked after. It will require constant and careful work on the part of those who have tbe festivities in charge and hey are fully awara of the dimoult task tbey have undertaken. Tbe fiesta of 1,09 Angeles, however, is a celebration in which not only this city, but the adjaoent towns take a pride. Though local in ita character, it bas aroused tbe interest of tbe people of Southern California, who recognize in the event a means of spreading the fame of tbe entire section throughout the United States, and even beyond the boundaries of thia country. The pageant tbat was presented here v* i not only artistic, but striking, but it the foundation of a display next ..,11 tbat will be wider in its scope, grander in ita features, more grotesque in its effect and more beautiful in ite de tails.

The fiesta committee hM specially en gaged Fawcett Uobinaon to dec ' ga the different floats and superintend tbe many decorationi that will tarnish some of tbe main attractions of the celebra tion. Mr. Bobinaon ia an artiet of more than national reputation. Hia aervicea bave been employed in tbe principal pageants and spectacular productions in Europe and tbe United States. His brother, Thomas Robinson, has had charge for many years of tbe lord mayor's parades in London, and nnder bis directions and instructions he leaned his profession. In 1887 Mr. Robinson crossed the At antio and came to this country, and bia services were at once engaged by Al Hayman, who plaoed him in charge of tbe work of modeling throne chairs and other paraphernalia for the production of spectacular plays at the Baldwin theater in San Francisco. Subsequently Mr. Robinson was en gaged by tbe Kiralfy Brothers, whom he aaaiated in making their extravaganzas the success tbey attained. His atten tion was principally directed to scenic and stago effects, and ha created many of the magnificent scenes produced in these spectacular plays. The Drury Lane the iter in London contains many artistio designs created by Mr. Robin son, and several theatrical managers in Australia availsd themselves of his art istic ingenuity. The managers of the Auditorium the ater in Ohioago engaged Mr. Robinson to do the modeling work for the stage and tbe building, and the works of art so mnch admired in the building are the work of the artist wbo will give the fiesta his beat efforts in tbat direotion. For tbe past four years Mr. Robinson has had charge of the designing and construction of floats for the Priest of Palace Parade association in Kansas City. That enterprising town baa a yearly oelebration, somewhat similar in character to the fiesta. During tbe world's fair hs was given the contract for the building of the floats for the ceremonies committee, AT WORK ON THE FLOATS. With these recommendations Mr. Kobinaon has come to Los Angeles, una der contract of tbe fiesta oommittee to design the floats that will form part of tbe attractions during the fiesta. As has been announced in The Herali, the history of the Snanlah-American civili sation will be depicted in about 20 floats. Each float will portray a distinct era, and the soenes and costumes will be as nearly historical aa tbey possibly can be m*■'.<». Mr. PjDinson bas bis headquarters the oommittee rooms, bnt Naud's ware house bas been rented, where the car penters will be at work in tbe construc tion of the floats. "The fiesta will compare favorably with any mardi gras or parade given in this country," said Mr. Robinson yes terday. "I am not at liberty to make publio tbe designs or my intentions in regard to tbe matter, but I can say that I will give, my best efforts and the frnits of my experience to make the pageant tbis /ear striking, interesting and ar tistic "From my experience I have learned that such oelebrationa as the mardi gras and the fiesta ars of incalculable benefit to the respective oitiet in which tbey are beld. Some, tbat have distinctive features, obtain national and even inter national reputations. They grow in populsrity every year. Last year New Orleans had no less than 200,000 strang ers from all sections of the United States to witness the mardi gras, and so will the fiesta tie Los Angeles become famous in a few yeara and at tract wide attention. Here you have a inperb climate to aid in bringing tour ists and viaitors to attend tbe feativitiet. Tbe fame of the pageant gets abroad aad th* people in tha surrounding country look npon tha oelebration as a holiday. TBI chisf.sk display. The Chinese merchants are quietly discussing tbe proposition of taking part in the parade during the fiesta. The magnificent fljets and costumes they displayed laat year received the merited appreciation of the people of tbis city and the Chinese residents recognized the courteous treatment they received here. The board of trade of Chinese mer chants will soon bring th natter before their countrymen and a mats meeting will be beld at tbeir rooms on North Los Angeles street to determine to what ex tent they will participate in the oelebra tion. The friendly feeling among the Chi nese last year was so marked that many of the laboring classes expressed their willingness to contribute money to en able the merchants to make as magnifi cent a ahowing tbis year. Tha last fiesta cost tbe Chinese over $1700. Many of tho rioh oostumea had been specially made for tbe occasion, while others had bsen rented from the Han Francisco and local theaters. Tbe History of Six Empires was the subject portrayed laat year, and in cluded representations from tha ancient warriors to the modern dude. It is the intention of the merchants to represent this year a certain epoch in the history of the Chinese empire, with floats and banners. COURT NOTES. Dimipi Are Awarded in 'Two Civil Salts. In the divorce case of Davis vs. Davis something happened recently which necessitated a modification of the in junction issued by Judge Shaw prevent ing the defendant from selling any of bis property. In tbe course of poroine events a lot of hogs, which Mr. Davis was raising for the market, beoame so fat tbat it was a case of butcher or apo plexy. Therefore Judge Shaw yesterday issued an order permitting the sale of the porkers. Tbe suit of Jessie Rust for a divorce from Otto Rust, on the ground of deser tion, was tried in department three yes terday and submittal). Tbe jury in the case ef A. D. Garrison against H. C. Dillon, A. B. Lawson and S. H. Vinnell yesterday morning re turned ite verdict in department four. It awards damages to plaintiff in the sum of $1000, to be paid by Lawson nnd Garrison. Ths claim against Mr. Dillon was ignored by the jnry. Lee Kirn, Louey Foo and Ah Young, three Chinamen charged with haying assaulted Horn Lock with revolvera on January 12tb, in this oity, pleaded not guilty in department one. A motion to have the oases tried separately by de fendants' attorney was overruled by Judge Smith and the case went on the calendar for March 19th. C. W. Pendleton has resigned aa su perior conrt commission and H. S. Rol lins has been appointed to the place. The jury in the case of H. 0. Anton eon and wife against the Los Angeles Consolidated Electric Railway company brought in a verdict yesterday afternoon in department three for $2000. AN UNGRATEFUL PRISONER. Frank Lewin Took Advantage of Hia Comrades and Committed Larceny. Several months ago Datsotive Good man arrested Frank Lswin for passing bogna checks. He was given a long term in the city jail. Since hia incarceration he has been ill almost continuously. On this account ha waa allowed more or less liberty, sometimes being allowed to go ont upon the street. The other day be went ont aa nenal to get a sniff of fresh air, but unlike the proverb ial cat, failed to return. Shortly afterward it waa discovered that several prisoners in tbe jail bad lost artioles of more or lass value, and anspicion at once fell upon young Lewin. Search waa instituted for the ungrateful fellow and Detective Auble Boon bad him back in prison. He waa fonnd in company with Jack Morriaon, the self confessed convict who "peached" on William Steadman and Frank Conway, the notorious burglars who were ar rested on suspicion of being the Ontario bank robbers and who are now in San Queatin. Lewin bad on an overcoat belonging to J. A. Hull, alias C. G. Hoyt. and alao bad a ruby pin belonging to Thomas L. Yonng, the wife-beater, serving time for battery. Lewin may be obarged with larceny. He baa yet 25 daya to serve on the charge on which he was committed. ONE TRIAL. The Considerable Expense It Caused the Connty. Carlo Rossi and another Italian, who work in a macaroni faotory in tbia city, went out hunting last Sunday. While slaughtering cottontails they were ar rested by Deputy Constable Wrigbt, o. San Gabriel township, who accused them of having shot quail in the en closed grounds of A. B. Chapman. An examination oi their game bags dis closed a aolitary bird. Tbe offense ia a high grade misde meanor. Consequently Justioe of the Peace Merriam of Pasadena, before whom the complaint had: been made by Wrigtit, could only examine tbem, and in case of probable canse, hold the de fendants to answer before the superior court. The evidence taken lata on Wednesday afternoon disclosed that tbe quail had been ehot five miles away from Chapman's preserves. On motion of Deputy District Attorney Willis the case was dismissed. .It is needless to say that if the dis trict attorney's office had been consulted in regard to the matter, no complaint would have been issued and money wonld bave been saved by it. Tha Bonds Are Piled. W. D. Larabee, to whom the city council granted a franchise to electricize the cable railway system of tbe city, yesterday filed hia bonds with the city clerk. M. H. Sherman, E. P. Clark and William Lacy are the sureties. The ordinanae requires that tbey con struct certain linea of street railway besides placing tbe oable aystem nnder electric power. AU Free.

F. Jndd Sheds Light on the Island Revolt. The Guns Bontrht in San Francisco With Spreckels' Money. Well Laid Flans of R.bel. That Want Astray—story of the Rev olution. Tba following acconnt ol the Ha waiian revolution, ac told by A. F. Jodd oyer his own tignatnra, throws new light on the affair. The •tort- ia ia the abapa of a latter addraaaad to the pablic •nd ia dated Honolulu. January 24, laat: I cannot undertake to give you a full histo ry of the late Royalißt rebol,lon, whose object was lo reinstrte "the ex-queen. 1 must refer you to the newspapers for many details. 1 shall endeavor, however, to give a succinct account of the evidence as it now stands. Major W. T. Seward, John Cummins' bosom friend and guest for many years—a white man and an American !) went to San Francisco, and with Rudolph Spreckels' money (R. Spreckels' friend Follis doing the job) bought IMS Winchester carbines, 80 revolvers and thousands of rounds of ammunition ; had them sent on board a setllog schoouer, the H. C. Wahlburg, by a tug after she had left Sau Francisco. Seward returned by steamer to Honolulu on December 3d last, and made ar rangements to have Cummins' natlvesin camp on an island at|the farther end of Walroanelo, called Manana, and watch for the schooner. This island is called by foreigners Rabbit island, and is not far from tho eastern point of Oahu, called Makapuu. On December "2d the preconcerted signal, a blue light, was ob served. The natives answered with a red light from the island, and the schooner re plied with a white light. A boat manned by natives and halt-whites, which had been bought by Major Seward in Honolulu for ¥30, and shipped over to Wlamanelo, then put off to the schooner which was standing off and on. You will notice that by reference to tho map of Oahu that Manana island Ib wi 11 to the windward of Oahu and not likely to be ob served. When the boat got near, the schooner hailed it and asked for the password. It was given, Missionary ! and the boat was allowed to go alongside. George Townsend, C. B. Wil son's wife's brother, a three-quarters white, boarded her, and after some talk two eases, containing in all 80 revolvers, were put lv the boat, landed ou the Island, put into grain bags with plenty of cartridges, nnd buried in the sand. Tbe pistols were afterwsrds brought to town by way of Ntiuanu Pali by three na tives, and finally delivered to Nowlein at Wash ington place and distributed to natives. The schooner, taking on board Charles Warren, half-white, wbo was formerly an orderly in the Household guards of the ex queen, and up to that time her yard boy or attendant, stood off tbe land to windward. This was notified by a messe ger to Major Seward and Sam. Nowlein (captain of the ex quoen's late guard). THE EMPLOYMENT OF PAVIFS. W. H. Rickard (British) then hired, advanc. ing $20 for coal and promising $10,000 Cuptain Davies (British) lo take his little steamer, the Waimaualo, to go a:ound the east point of Oahu and take the rest of the arms on board. The Walmanalo left Honolulu and anchored off the island 1 Ashing." Suspicions were not aroused, because the Walmanalo having been employed by the syndicate of Royalists in wrecking the O. N. Wilcox on Molokal beach could be absent days or wo>ks from Honolulu, and this absence not considered as suspicious. Moreover, that part of Walmanalo land Is seldom visited by any while person, and the island itself would shut off tbe view of the steamer Irom the observation of persons at the plantation. Sunday night, December 30,1894, the captain of the steamer saw the preconcerted Blgnal light, got up anchor, met the schooner, gave the password "Missionary," and the arms, the 288 Winchester carbines and ammunition, were transferred by boat lo the steamer. Tho steamer came around Koko Head to Diamond Heed. When near there W. 11. Ricard came on board from Homy Bertelman's house. (Mr. Bartleman is a large half-white, a car- EBnter, formerly on the ex-queen's Btaff ) ickard questioned Warren as to the number of rifles and cartridges, etc., wrote the antqiints ' In a previously prepared Tetter, sent It ashore to Bertlemau. Rickard stood off for i! 4 hours in the steamer Waimanalo. While away tho rifles were on top of the steamer's house, and the men practiced with them. This was on Wednesday night, January 2d. The steamer came up again to Bertleman's Thursday nlgat, and R. W. Wilcox came on board In a canoe and said that the arms could not be landed in Honolulu as arranged for, so the steamer stood off to Kahala, just eastward of Diamond Head (See large map of Oahu) and landed them there. One boat load was burled In the sand, and another boat load hid in the algabora trees. This same evening, January 3d, a large number of natives gatlt eted at Fisherman's Point, Immigration sta tion, near saluting battery, and several spe cial policemen were "stood up" and their pis tols and badges taken awar from them. Wil cox was there at Fisherman's Point, and see ing that the government had some knowledge of the gathering, went to Diamond Head and warned the steamer not to come Into the har bor there and land the arms. It had been ar ranged to land them, a part at Fisherman's Point and a part at the fish market on Queen street Meanwhile T. B, Walker, an English man, lon-iff-law of John Cummins, had at Captain S. Nowleln's request, filled on Sunday, December 80lh. Bnnie nine castlron shells with giant powder and bird shot, and had his son deliver them to Nowlein on New Year's day. These shells or bombs had b en cast at White A Ritman's foundry In Honolulu. THE MUSTEK OF NATIVES. Thursday night, January 3d, Walker had gone to the fish market to Bee to it that the rifles and ammunition were safoly landed there. He had two revolvers. This was at Nowleln's request. He waited a long time, and seeing no one, went home, not then know ing the change of plans. On Saiurday, Janu ary sth, many natives began to collect in small lots at Antone Rosa's house, just beyond Diamond Head. The piace is called Kaalawal (see map). This gathering of men continued on Sunday, January.sth That day the tele phone atation, marine telegraph station, was taken possession of by armed men, the tele phone instrument wrenched out. Charlie meters and daughter, the operators, were taken prisoners by the rebels, as were also some dozen persons residents or tourists who were taking Sunday strolls in nnd beyond the park. These were all conducted to Rosa's place, kept there under guard all night, and liberated during Monday. Sunday, January tfth, the marshal received an intimation trom a native that there were anna at Bertleman's. A posse of police were sent with a search war rant. Deputy Marshal Arthur M. Brown and Police Captain Robert Parker (Waipa) went out to serve it (Captain Parker's mother was a sister of Hon. Sam Parker's father.) This I posse saw patrols near Bertleman's and were tired upon before they could serve the war rant. Several gentlemen living In the park who had an intimation of the trouble that was likely to occur and who were members of the Citizen's guard, went to Brown and Par ker's assistance. These were my nephew Charlie Carter, Coilector-tien-r'al James B. Castle, Alfred W. Carter. Charlie's cousin and law partner. and "Jack" Atkinson. The circumstances of Char lie's being shot at the entrance to the boat house are too painful to be retold. But a doctor was got there (Dr. Wabers) under fire, and Charlie was litis lv taken home to his residence at the park, where he died at 5:30 a. m. Monday, Jauuary 7th, my birthday Sunday night, while in Central Union church,, opposite Washington place, members of the Citizens'guard were called singly out ol cliurcu. This alarmed us and the services were closed a little before the usual time. No one exactly knew what the trouble was. Ci tzeus' guard and volunteer companies were running to their various quarters; but all I heard before 1 went to bed was that at Bertle - man's the police searching for arms were be ing resisted. The next morning, January 7ih, I was awakened by a telephone Irom J. O. Carter that Charlie Caiter was killed, and that I must go and tell his mother. 1 discharged this aad duty at daylight, and teem drove back to the park with my wife, saw Charlie's body, and returned to Sweet Home and made the arrangements for the funeral, which took place that day at 4 p. m. If I'IIIM S IN THE THICKET. Sunday night the rebels, who were about Bertleman's in the thickets and who had fired hundreds of shots from their ambush at our friends, hitting and wounding dangerously two nstive police, Holt and Lokana, fell back ; some, R. W. Wilcox's party, mounted Dia mond Head crest, but were dislodged on Mon day, and their hot fire stopped by the third shell from an Anslrlan gun placed In front of Sans Soucl. On Monday there was hot tiring on the ro.d to Waielae at a place called Moil 11 li. This was between the Nowlein . party and our troops. A lot of fellows sur- } rendered, atu a shell or so dispersed tlie re- | matnder. How many arms had been lauded, or bow many rebels were assembled, no one then knew. The number of the rebel force and their character as to courage were much overrated, as it afterward proved. No one knew which way they had fle.l. You know how abrupt our mountains are, and how difficult to see or capture fugitives on those ridges would be. The boulders are thick,y scattered and overgrown witb (be prickly laatena Martial law waa declared Monday morning, January 7th; all the military waa o.dcred out, and the Citizens' guard stationed at street cor ners alt over the town—about HOO in aX An engagement with the rebels took place in Mano valley on Wednesday afternoon, Jan uary 9th. The rebels were crossing the height, bound westward. Companies were sant up Pauao valley, back ol Punchbowl, to intercept them, but could not locate them. Thursday, the 10th, the sharpshooters went up Nuuanu and crossed over into J'auoa valley; no rebels were found. Stragglers kept coming in all the time, having thrown their guns away. Mean while the authorities were Undine: out from the prisoners-the particulars of tne rebellion, and Royalists whose participation was being given away were being arested and put into jail. Monday, January 14th, at about 10 a. ru., the whereabouts of Nowlein and three others having been disclosed by a native whom I questioned, the marshsl sent oat W. A. Kin ney, a lawyer, and F. B. McStockor, deputy collector of customs, with armed citizens on horseback and in hack, nnd the place was sur rounded, and out of the bush marched Capt. Sam Nowlein, Carl Wideniann, W. tt. C, Greig and Louis Marshall, aged B», born in C am bridge, Mass., and who keeps a harness shop, and they surrendered to Kinney without a shot! Late the same day the "Se?ond Gari baldi," the hero of the Hawalians, Robert W. Wilcox, surrendered on tlie bench near the quarantine inland without a shot, only too glad to get into the station house without be ing lynched. This was January 14th. Mrs. Judd s birthday, and the second anniversary of Liliuokalani's overthrow. MILITARY COMMISSION. Wednesday n military commission was or ganized by the commander-in-chief's order, and Circuit Judge Whiting resigned and was appointed to the vacant colonelcy, Colonel Sopor having resigned some months before this. That day, .lanuary Kith, Liliuokalani was taken from Washington place to Kapiolan'sold rooms In the executive building, formerly tho palace (Just opposite the gold room, where of ficial audiences were held). That night 34 rifles 12 revolvers, 31 bombs, and 10JO refunds of ammunition we I'd taken from Liliuokalani's residence, Washington place, and about 40 natives, who were t:.ere to guard her, were ar rested. It was ascertained that papers directly connected with the revolt, had been dostroyed, but sufficient memoranda exist to give clues and throw lignt upon other evidence of facts. Buffi CO it to say that Mrs. Dominis, being finally sattslleii that. Cleveland would not restore her, got ready another constitution, commissioned the cabinet, judges, governors, eic., oi her new government, nnd under Nowlein and Wilcox (K. W.), the ball opened to restore her. The plan was to surprise the town by attacks in several phces, and Monday morning early ('£ a.m.), was the time set for the armed wrcc from Diamond head to march in, take the town and reinstate the queen; and tho white men, Royalists, were to lend a hand and reap the spoils. Martial law was to be declared, etc. The surprise at Bertlemen's and Charlie's death blocked the game. The Royalists were jailed—l mean the bold, bad ones. The na tives' leaders were cowards and fled a* soon as shell was used. Only two natives were killod on the rebel side; one iv Manoa and another in Panoa valley: none at all on Diamond head, and none at all on our side but Charlie 1 The lauding of the arms was well planned nnd well executed. Of course, there W<ef4 other arms used, which had been col lected little by little. If the government, bad had reliable knowledge of the number of rebels in arms, undoubtedly the whole lot could have been Burrounded and captured while on and about Diamond Head, it was believed for several days that the rebels had a howitzer. Tho best feature in this whole affair is the alacrity witli which nearly every white man and many natives rushed to tho aid of the republic and to preserve the security of the community. Everyone wished to be sent to the front. The Kaimkas ou our side proved to be brave and fought well; but they were well lett and were on rho right side, My son Allen Wilkes, who will be only 16 years old on nevt February 27th, was with the sharpshoot ers all along, and neard bullets whistle over his head, COWARDTCE OF THE WHITES. The worst feature of the affair is the coward ice of the white men who purchased the arras and planned the rebellion and left the natives in the lurch. Mc3srs. Willis and Uawes at tended the trial daily, and I have no doubt they share In the general opinion that those dastardly cravens, who kept their carcasses out of rifle roach and who were to take in the boodle, do not deserve the protection wnich they now seek from their respective govern ments. The ex-queen seems to be a whi c ele phant an our hands, We are also confronted with these very serious questions, Shall any be hanged? If so, who, out of so many who deserve it?" The republic of Hawaii has suppressed this rebellion wituout foreign aid, But If * United States ship had been here 1 think the attempt of the Koyalisu would not have been made. No mail leaves here uutil the 30th inst., and we have no cable. It is conjecturod that the time taken be tween ihe landing of the pistols and the land ing of the rifles was in order to perfect the ar rangements' for the revolt. Pistols can be concealed —rifles cannot be. But few of tho pistols have been recovered—one-half ot the rifles have been found; only n few of tho BO cast iron bombs have been recovered. Let us go back a little In the narrative. On Tuesday, January Bth, the pass at Makapuu point was guarded by citizens and held until the surrender of Nowlein and Wilcox on the 14th. I loaned three of my best horses for this duty. Tho letter from W. 11. Kickard, which was taken ashore by Pua. the long haired servant of Bertleman, was addressed to Charles T. Gulick. Pua delivered it to Bertle man. Bertleman took it to town that night, Wednesday, January 2d, delivered it to Now lein, who took it to Gulick, and it was read by them and tbo place of landing the arms then changed. Seward,Gulick, Kickard and Nowlein planned the revolution, and Guiick drafted the constitution, the 11 comm salons for the cabinet and officials, proclamation of martial law, etc. The ex-queen signed the 11 com missions on December 28, 1894. These four men had frequent conferences at Gulick's house in the heart of the town, on King street, aud the-e lasted several hours each time. Seward was to get the arras, Nowlein prepare the natives, Gulick was to attend the papers for Liliuokalani, and Rickard was to attcmi to the landing of the rifles, nnd this they all did. The surprise at Bertleman's on Sunday even ing, the Uth January, mado the attempt hope less. But it nvrer could have succeeded. The friends of the republic were too numerous and too well armed and too determined to be con | quercd. But if the natives had taken prison ers the proroi nent men, and had burned houses in different parts of the town, the con fusion would have been terrible, and no one can tell how many lives would have been lost on both sides. It was planned that a squad was to capture|the males who were in Central rnion church as they came out that Sunday night, and to capture all Cttileal* guards within a certain radiuß, and hold the town and not assault the executive building, but starve the soldiers quartered there to submission. With the gatting guns at that building, and plenty of men to handle them, this would be impossible. TitXAT, OP THE REBELS. The trial of the rebels by a military court and not by our civil courts is fully justified. It would be impossible to secure convictions by a native jury. Tho military court as the proper tribunal was universally approved. The trials are now proceeding in the "throne room" of the ex-palace. The conduct of the court is i dignified and calm, and the prisoners are ably defended by counsel of their own selection. This affair has brought out the best qualities of our citizens. Our women were up night and day furnishing coffee and other refreshments to the soldiers, Citizens' guards aud patrols. Children carried messages to different parts of the town, and only a few were nervous aud timid. We are now safe, thank God. but we do not forget our peril and the loss of one brave life. I write this narative while tt is fresh in mind, and as we have so many friends to whom we wish to send it 1 have hed it printed. I presume it will be more easily read and com prehended than If our friends had only tho newspapers to rely on. Many of the items iv newspapers were rumors only which subse quent events proved to be unfounded. A move ment has begun among the natives in favor of annexation to the United States in order to secure peace and give stable government I do not think that any later discovered evi dence will change what 1 have written, and so close now in order that the narrative may be printed and mailed by the next outgoing steamer. One thing that has added to our security has been the prompt closing of all liquor saloons, retail ana wholesale, on the 7th instant, and this order continues to the present writing. A serious tire by an incendiary very near the po lice stotion, on the evening of tho 27th, em phasises the necessity for this action. On the 24th instant Liliuokalani signed vol untarily a complete and formal abdication. Yours sincerely, A. F. Jinn, Chief Justice of Hawaii Seethe World's Fair for Fifteen Oentt.
