THE PACIFIC
COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, JANUARY 8, 1894.
HAMAKUA ROYALISTS PLOT,
Government Officials Take a Hand
In Politics.
THURSTON AND CO. TO BE DEPORTED.
Mr. Da vies .Appeal on the Amateur
Staff Again, lliln Time In the Char
acter of MachlaveUi The ex-Oueen'a
Frieutla Hold m I.uau In Her Honor.
A gentleman in Hamakua, wri
ting privately to one of his corres
pondents in this city, manages to
convey some hitherto unpublished
news of a pretty lively character.
Some of the office-holders on Ha
waii are evidently not as thorough
ly in accord a3 they profess to be,
and the expectation of seeing Mrs.
Dominis made into a queen again
seems to havo led them to show
their hands a little too soon. Hero
is the correspondent's account of
it:
The last news from the Coast just
came in the nick of time. That is,
had it been delayed for one or two
weeks more, I believe every one of
the Government officials In this dis
trict, Hamakua, would have thrown
ofT the thin mask of loyalty to the
E resent Government, which they have
een wearing, and come out as true
blue royalists, as they really are at
heart.
On the 2Sth of November, there was
a grand luau and jubilee generally, in
Waiplo. Its significance was in the
fact that the promoters firmly believ
ed the ex-queen would be restored on
that day, and it was that restoration
which was being celebrated.
The luau was attended by our De
puty Sheritr Moanaull and family,
Deputy Tax Collector Chas. Williams
and family, District Judge Edwin
Thomas and family, together with
sundry policemen, who all celebrated
the occasion.
As you know, friend T. H. Davies
has been through here, and I hear
talked little else than politics. He is,
(was at that time) perfectly certain
the queen is to be restored, so certain
Is he, and talked so plausibly that
quite a number of rather weak-kneed
individuals in this district, became
either his converts or so doubtful they
will not talk.
According to Davies one of the first
moves after restoration will be the de
portation of L. A. Thurston and B. E.
Bishop. This part of the programme
was told some one in confidence, and
leaked out.
It would appear to me, that the
Government would be perfectly justi
fied in putting a quietus on such talk
from such a man, even if it became
necessary to administer a do3e of his
own medicine.
I emphasize the such a man, be
cause he really has considerable in
fluence. Similar expressions from a
great many others, would amount to
nothing.
Since his visit, and that of some of
his traveling employees, there are
qaite a number of people through
here, who profess to believe in the
justice of the ex-queen cause, who
did not before.
MISS ALBU'S BENEFIT.
Saturday's Concert Greatly Enjoyed
by the Audience.
Although the audience at the
( Opera House on Saturday night
was not a very large one, those who
were present enjoyed the concert to
the utmost. The Misses Albu have
won the hearts of the music-loving
TM-iWi r F TTnnrtl flirt onrl xr&rxr rl .
Miss Albu, to whom the concert
was given as a benefit, was received
with a prolonged round of ap
plause when she appeared on the
stage. Her first number was "Aloha
Oe," with the Quintette Club assist
ing in the chorus. Miss Albu has
sung this song at two of the former
concerts, and each time it has been
enthusiastically received, but it is
doubtful if there was more ap
plause on either of the other occa
sions than there was Saturday night.
Several people have said that she
sings it with a better pronunciation
of the Hawaiian words, and in a
much better way generally than
any other foreign singer who has
ever appeared here. Miss Rose
Albu repeated "Like no a Like,"
which she sang for the first time at
the Kawaiahao Church concert.
The success of the evening was
the dust from Bellini's Norma,
" Hear Me, Norma." The music is
exquisite, and wa3 finely rendered
by the sisters. The final number
on the programme was Mendels
sohn's beautiful duet "I Would that
My Love."
The Quintette Club, Signor Bar
sotti, Mr. W. J. Cuelho, and other
local talent helped make tho pro
gramme the good ono it was. It is
much to be hoped that a like bene
fit will be tendered to Miss Rose
Albu before the artistes take their
departure for the Coast.

A PLOT FOR A COMIC OPERA
Here's a Chance for American Gil
berts and Sullivans.
SOME RICH MATERIAL FOR A PLAY.
All the J:tentlaU of a rfrtt.class Oper
atic JSurlearjua to le Found In the
Hawaiian liuslueaa Where Are Our
Playwrights?
"If the writers of comic operas
ignore the Hawaiian incident," said
a successful comedian to a New
York Herald interviewer the other
evening, "they will simply cast
away the iattest and juciest theme
that has offered itself in ten years.
"Look at the possibilities of the
case ! A fat queen is driven from
her throne by the decent people of
her kingdom. The Stars and Stripes
are raised over the royal palace,
and the first act ends with a chorus
of Uncle Sam's marines in the fore
ground and the United States war
ships in the harbor of Honolulu in
the distance.
"Act 2 occurs in Washington.
Pretty Princess Kaiuiani, the heir
ess apparent, appears at the White
House with her English guardian
imploring the President not to per
mit the revolutionists to swindle
her out of her crown. The Presi
dent listens to her song and says
nothing, but after her departure he
sends for the Secretary of State.
Together they resolve that the de
throned queen must be restored.
An envoy is dispatched to Hono
lulu to replace the queen on her
throne. The act closes with a re
frain something like this :
We're going to restore Queen Li I.
We can do it, and you bet we will;
She's our dusky sister, and now we
must assist her,
And Uncle Sam will foot the bill.
"The third act is laid in Hono
lulu. The first scene shows United
States marines hauling down the
United States flag from the palace
and the representative of Uncle
Sam escorting the queen back to
her throne. Dramatic enough and
extravagant enough, isn't it? The
second scene shows a .semi-barbarous
celebration of the restoration
of the monarchy a native fete
with a ballet dressed as hula dan
cers the queen and her followers
in a picturesque orgy. The third
and final scene shows another up
rising of the civilized people of the
islands against the licentious mon
archy. The queen appeals to the
American representative for pro
tection and support, only to be
told that the United States Gov
ernment merely undertook to re
place her on the throne, but not to
keep her there. The climax is
reached in the overthrow of the
monarchy and the rehoisting of
the American flag.
"Think of the humorous and
pictorial possibilities of the story !
The harbor of Honolulu, the volup
tuous sub-tropical scenery, the
American ships and their dressy
marines I There is no end of the
fun involved in the situation. It
contains the material for one of the
best operatic burlesques ever put
on the stage." Philadelphia Re
cord. BY TORCHLIGHT.
That Wat the Way the Cornerstone of the
Staten Iluml Church Was Iald.
The laying of a cornerstone at night is
the novel sight that was witnessed at
Stapleton, N. Y.. the other evening, when
the construction of the new First Pres
byterian church was formally inaugu
rated amid the glare of torches and elec
tric lights.
The First Presbyterian church of Sta
pleton is one of tho wealthiest and most
fashionable congregations on Staten Is
land, but it hai hitherto worshiped in a
small and unpretentious edifice. Recent
ly it decided to erect a new and hand
some church, to cost a large sum of
money, and the members hit upon the
novel plan of laying the cornerstone at
night to make the occasion memorable.
Electric lights strung were from
ferent points and in such a manner as to
throw the full glare directly on the spot
where the cornerstone was placed. As
the illumination, however, was hardly
strong enough to read by, a number of
people stood about the officiating clergy
men holding pine torches, thus enabling
the services to bo carried out without
hitch.
Owing to the novelty of the idea of
laying a cornerstone at night, there was
a large attendance at tho ceremony,
prominent society people from all parts
of the island being present, New York
Commercial Advertiser.
A Dramatic tfufcltte.
"How French!" was probably the ex
clamation of most people when they
read of the dramatic suicide of tho young
woman at Clichy, France, the other day.
While the train conveying the Russian
visitors to Versailles was crossing the
Seine she stood on a parallel bridge,
waving French and Russian flags, and
shouting: "X see and I die. Long live
Russia!" she jumped into the river and
was drowned. When her body was re
covered it was found that she was cloth
1 only in garments made out of French
and Russian flags. New York Tribune.
TfiiEO TO SHOOT HIS HOST,
A Water-Tender Prom the Adams
Gets into Trouble.
A WAHINB, A PISTOL AND A SAILOR.
The Three Combined Cauto Trouble fur
Mr. Mullen, Who AVouhl Not Jlrook
any Interference In III Love Affairs.
Landed In Jail.
A water tender from the U.S. S.
Adams was arrested on Saturday
night and lodged in the Station
House, charged with assault with
a deadly weapon.
The man's name is Mullen, and
he had gone down to Moanalua on
Saturday afternoon, bent on having
a good time. He was in the house
of a native, and was paying more
attention to one of his host's female
relatives than the former thought
compatible with good breeding.
The woman also seemed smitten
with the blue-jacket's charms, and
the man objected serionsly. He
objected in vain, however, as Mul
len paid no attention whatever to
his remonstrances.
Things went on from bad to
worse, and at last Mullen thought
it was time to show the jealous na
tive that he was a lady-killer par
excellence. So he drew an ugly
looking 44-caliber English bulldog
revolver from his pocket and pulled
the trigger, pointing the gun at his
host. '
Fortunately for the latter the
pistol contained only one cartridge
which did not happen to be in the
chamber on which the trigger de
scended. This was all that saved
his life, and realizing this, he de
cided that he would take no chances
on having another shot fired at
him and took to his heels.
Mullen meanwhile calmy stepped
into his hack, which was waiting
at the door, and drove back to
town, where he added to the cargo
of liquor that he already had on
board. He flourished his pistol in
the Anchor saloon, and threatened
to shoot anyone who was in need of
such attention. His offer not being
accepted, he gracefully submitted
to being arrested by Captain Ka
hookano, who escorted his charge to
the station where he found his na
tive host in the act of swearing out
a warrant for his arrest. The case
will come up in the .District Court
this morning.
