The Ijuccu Attempts a
Resistance by llie Cabiitt and
JJJiuokalani Wants to Force a
New Constitution Down the
Throats of the Ministers
She Draws Up Her
Troops and Threat
ens the Cabinet.
THE CITIZENS CONVENE
AND FORM A COMMITTEE
OF PUBLIC SAFETY.
The Revolution Deferred,
Saturday afternoon between 1
and 2 o'clock, the community was
startled by the information that a
coup d'etat was in progress, and
that the Queen was endeavoring to
force her Cabinet to sign a new
Constitution which she then pro
posed to promulgate immediately
people. The information
first disbelieved by some,
was speedily confirmed.
The political changes of the past
few days, the renewed vote of
Want of Confidence, the secret at
tempts made by the Queen to
secure the overthrow of her Minis
ters, her secret interviews with
Noble Dreier and others, the sy'.a
den change of Cabiw"6upled
itJl;4jvjoig"ning"df the Opium and
Lottery bills and the immediate
prorogation of the Legislature had
produced a feeling of intense dis
gust as well as of growing unrest
in the community. Rep. Iva
mauoha had stated on the lloor of
the House that the Cabinet would
not carry out the wishes of the
Queen, and particularly in regard
to a new Constitution. This, was
felt by some to give a hint as to
what was to be looked for in the
future, and many shared these
forebodings. On Saturday morn
ing rumor was busy, and it was
freely stated that a new Constitu
tion was to be promulgated in the
afternoon. At a meeting of busi
ness men, held in the room of the
Chamber of Commerce, reference
was made to this possibility, but
still it was not generally believed
until in the afternoon the uner
pected happened, and doubt was
transformed into certainty.
Three days before the coup d'etat
was attempted, a gentleman who
enjoys the confidence of the Queen,
told one of the members of the
present Cabinet (who was then in
private station) that the blow was
to be struck, and that the persons
of the Ministers would be secured.
In the anticipation that the present
Cabinet would not make any re
sistance to the revolutionary blow,
the precaution of arresting them
was not taken. Saturday morning
one of the Ministers received posi
tive information that a blow was to
be struck that afternoon. He im
mediately proceeded to consult two
prominent citizens cn the course to
be taken. After a conference, the
gentlemen referred to advised the
Cabinet to refuse to sign a new
Constitution and to decline to re
sign, if their resignations should
be demanded. The prorogation of
the Legislature was the last chap
ter in the story of the morning.
It went off tamely and quietly
enough, but those who were ac
quainted with the, real situation
felt that the Government and the
nation were sleeping on the crest of
the afternoon, immediately
after the House had been prorogued,
the Hui Kalaiaina marched over
to the Palace and presented a new
Constitution to the Queen, with
the petition that the same be pro
mulgated to the people as the fun
damental law of the land. The
matter of the new Constitu
tion and petition had been
prearranged, and it is stated that
its prorogation had been promised
two weeks previously, and the
member from Lahaina, Vm. White,
had been actively working up the
movement. A large crowd of Ha
waiians had gathered around the
Palace gates, and in the grounds
near the great flight of steps, and
natives were also gathered in large
groups in the Government Build
ing yard and elsewhere in the
neighborhood. The Queen retired
to the Blue Room and summoned
THE CABINET MENACED.
The Ministers repaired at once
to the Queen in the Blue Room.
She was seated at a table, still
dressed in the magnificent costume
of the morning, and sparkling in a
coronet of diamonds. She at once
presented them with the draft of
the new Constitution, demanded
their signatures, and declared her
intention to promulgate the same
at once. Attorney-General Peter
son and Minister of Interior Col
burn decidedly refused to do so,
and Ministers Cornwell and Parker,
though more hesitatingly, joined
their colleagues in their refusal.
All the Cabinet now advised and
even strongly urged Her Majesty
not to violate the law, but she was
not to be dissuaded from her revo
lutionary course. Bringing her
clenched hand down upon the
table, Queen Liliuokalani said,
"Gentlemen, I do not wish
to hear any more advice.
I intend to promulgate this
Constitution and to do it now."
Proceeding she told the Cabinet
that unless they abandoned their
resistance at once, she would go out
upon the steps of the Palace and
tell the excited crowd there as
sembled that she wished to give
them a new Constitution, but her
Ministers were inside the Palace
hindering her from doing it. The
Ministers remembered the riot at
the Court House, and the fate of
the unlucky representatives who
fell into the hands of the mob.
They knew what the threat meant,
and before it could be put into exe
cution they fled for their lives.
THE APrEAL TO THE CITIZENS.
From the government building,
the Ministers immediately sent
word down town, asking the citi
zens what support the Cabinet
could expect in its resistance to the
revolutionary movement begun by
the Queen. Leadine citizens of
every political complexion hurried
together at Hon. W. O. Smith's
office, and while their numbers
were every instant augmented by
fresh accessions, held a hurried
consultation as to the course to be
pursued. There was but one mind
among all those gathered together,
tradesmen, lawyers, mechanics,
merchants, were of one opinion
unanimity of pent -menl -reigned
such as-a not been witnessed
S-lot years, and it was agreed
without a dissenting voice that it
was the duty of every good
citizen without distinction of party
to support the law and the liber
ties of the people, and to resist the
revolutionary encroachments of
the Queen. A message to this
effect was at once dispatched to
A NEW STRUGGLE WITH THE QUEEN.
The Ministers now revisited the
again, not without the
that their persons
would be taken into custody even
if they suffered no bodily harm.
Great pressure had been brought
upon Her Majesty to induce her to
go no farther and to retrace the
revolutionary step3 she had already
taken. While her troops stood
drawn up before the Palace, wait
ing for the final word of command,
the Queen hesitated and hesitated.
The conference in the Blue Room
lasted for a long time while the
result trembled in the balance.
She could not be induced to give
up her unlawful project, but finally
consented with bitter reluctance to
a temporary postponement of the
THE QUEEN'S SrEECH.
The Queen was a very angry
woman, when at 4 r. m. Saturday
she returned to the Throne Room
where were assembled the Hui Ka
laiaina with most of the native
members of the Legislature, the
Cabinet, the Governor of Oahu,
the young Princes, Chief Justice
Judd and Mr. Justice Bickerton,
the Staff, ladies of the Court, ka
hili bearers, etc. She ascended the
dais and spoke substantially as
Princes, Nobles and Representa
tives: I have listened to the thousands of
voices of my people that have come
to me, and I am prepared to grant
their request. The present Consti
tution is full of defects, as the Chief
Justice here will testify, as questions
regarding it have so often come be
fore him for settlement. It is so
faulty that I think a new one should
be granted. I have prepared one, in
which the rights of all have been re
garded -a constitution suited to the
wishes of the people. I was ready
and expected to proclaim the new
constitution to day, as a suitable oc
casion for it, and thus satisfy the
wishes of my dear people. Bat, with
deep regret, I say that I have met
with obstacles that prevent it. Re
turn to your homes peaceably and
quietly and continue to look towards
me, and I will look towards you.
Keep me ever in your love. I am
obliged to postpone the granting of
the Constitution for a few days. I
must confer with my Cabinet, and
when, after you return home, you
may see it, receive it graciously.
You have my love, and with sorrow I
now dismiss you.
Mr. White replied, thanking the
Queen and assuring her of the love
of the people, and that thev would
wait patiently until their desires
should be fulfilled, to which" the
Queen responded with thank?, and
left the ihrone Room. t j
Mr. Kaunamano then began in
a loud voice an inflammatory bar- ;
angue which was suppressed. He
demanded the lives of the members j
of the Cabinet who had opposed ;
the wishes of Her Majesty, and de- j
clared that he thirsted for blood- j
A few moments later the Queen j
went out upon the upper balcony
of the Palace and addressed the j
crowd. She told them that on i
account of the perfidy of her Min- j
isters she was unable to give them
the Constitution which she had
promised them, but that she would
take the earliest opportunity of
procuring it for them. (The crowd
then gave three cheers).
Rep. White then proceeded to
the steps of the Palace and began
an address. He told the crowd
that the Queen and the Cabinet
had betrayed them, and that in
stead of going home peaceably
they should go into the Palace and
kill and bury her. Attempts were
made to stop him which he re
sisted, saying that he would
never close his mouth until
the new Constitution was granted.
Finally he yielded to the
expostulations of Col. Boyd and
others, threw up his hands and de
clared that he was pau, for the
present. After this the audience
News was brought to the citizens
down town that the attempt to !
carry the revolution through had j
for the moment failed. The meet- j
ing, however, appreciating the fact
that the trouble had but just be- j
gun, did not disperse, but con- j
tinued the consideration of the j
emergency. A. Committee of Pub- !
lie Safety was formed, to which the j
further consideration of the situa- j
tion was delegated, after which the ;
meeting, which had been animated
by one heart and one soul from the ;

Friends of the Queen claim that
her actions of Saturday are due
to advice furnished by kahunas.

The revolutionist party held a
meeting at the Palace Sunday
mornmg. The Queen called in the
Hawaiian pastors who were present
to pray that she might keep her
Throne, and told them that evil
minded foreigners were trying to
take it away from her.
The early arrival of the U. S. S.
Boston cut an important figure in
the proceedings of Saturday. In
the minds of many the presence of
the warship prevented the promul
gation of the constitution.
The new instrument which the
revolutionists wish to proclaim is
really the old Constitution, which
gave so much power to the sove
reign. One of the officers of the House
hold Guards was heard to say that
they had enough arras and ammu
nition to kill every haole in the
Rep. Kaunamano stood on the
Palace steps on Saturday and
wanted the natives to murder Min
isters Parker and Colburn because
they did not suport the revolution
Continued attention, says the
London Grocer, is being directed
to the cultivation of Liberian coffee
in different parts of the world.
There are grounds for believing
that the neglect into which it had
fallen of late years is being grad
ually replaced by a greater interest
in the capabilities of the plant,
and in its undoubted value for cul
tivation at low elevations and in
climate quite unsuited to the ordi
nary Arabian coffee. The more
important plantations yielding reg
ular crops of Liberian coffee are es
tablished in Java and in the
Straits Settlements. In the latter,
the yield per acre in full bearing is
given as ranging from H cwts. to
11$ cwts. per acre. Placing the
price of Liberian coffee as low as
90s. per cwt., this would show a
gross return of from -12 to "2
per acre. This is a higher return
than is obtained from almost any
plantations of Arabian coffee.
These figures, it should be remem
bered, are based on returns sup
plied to Kew Gardens by an expe
rienced" and competent planter.
