little further op the valley. Con
tinuing on through entangled bushes,
across gulches he moved, until he
gained a position maukaof Paul Isen
berg'a ranch. A zigzag course was
then adopted by Dunn. He thus
traveled several miles without finding
any trace of the rebels. About this
time be began to experience the pangs
of hunger, having consumed the i small
quantity of food brought from Hono
lulu. No trouble was experienced in
finding plenty of water.
Hoping to noon come up with some
of the revolutionary party, Dunn kept
on his way, though at times under
circumstances that would have dis
couraged the heart of an intrepid Aus
tralian bushranger.
When he had almost given up hope
of Hading the parties looked for, this
experienced bushman suddenly found
himself in front of an armed guard,
who demanded whither he was
traveling and what his name was.
After considerable parleying the ques
tions propounded were answered to
the satisfaction of the native guard.
In the conversation that followed
Dunn was informed that the rebel
forces were encamped a short distance
above, under the lee of Koko Head.
Questions asked and answered satis
fied the guard of Dunn's loyalty, and
he was allowed to proceed to the ren
dezvous of the insurgents. Boldly
entering the camp Dunn waa received
with a welcome, the like of which far
exceeded his moat sanguine imagina
tion. He was questioned so fast that
for a time he found It somewhat dlffl
cult to give satisfactory answers.
After reciting all that had been and
was going on in Honolulu, the spirits
erf the rebels were somewhat damp
ened. . ,
The party Into which Dunn had
found his way consisted of something
over 150 in number, all natives. The
men were mostly lying down, while
several were walking up and down In
order to keep warm. The party had
only a few blankets and wraps, and
many of them were noticed to be in
their shirt sleeves. Robert Wilcox waa
In charge of the party, and it wts to
him that Dunn chiefly addressed
his conversation. Wilcox described
how the royallsta would make a de
tour of the country, be re-enforced at
different points en route, and Anally
enter Honolulu by way of the Plains
with over 1000 men at his command.
They had plenty of food, ammunition
and guns, and, as sure as fate, would
succeed in overturning the hated mis
sionaries. Robert Wilcox also spoke of
Bam Nowleln, and said he waa not
far away with seventy-five armed,
well-drilled and determined men. He
wanted to know if the natives had
rallied from Ew4 and across the
Pall, and waa considerably cha
grined to learn from Dunn that
they had played the "flunk act."
This he could not well understand, as
everything had been arranged before
he left Honolulu. Inquiry was par
ticularly made as to the welfare of the
white royalists; were any of them ar
rested, and waa the "rightful queen"
still at Washington Place? Dunn ex
plained that it would take him sev
.m1 knnn a i-Mftnitnla.ta all that was
said, but that Wilcox swore the di
rest Kind or vengeance agaiust iuo
haoles. wi.
Early Tuesday morning Wilcox
who was up betimes, announced his
intention of changing base. Hasty
n.rMiTtinni vro marl ft for march
ing. He called some 125 men together
and spoke to them In native. What
be sala to tnem eviaenuy piwwevi
iom na thov Rpnmed ailXlOUS to de
part. Before starting, however, Wil
cox turned to Dunn and told him he
was going to march straight for
1nrifthhnwT. And would Capture the
Government powder magazine. Dunn
was to proceed immediately
notify Nowleln of his intention,
and tAil him to foin him
at Punchbowl with his - entire
command as soon as he could get
there. "I will capture and hold
Punchbowl until he (Nowleln)arrives;
but all haste must be made by him to
Join me there." Wilcox said further
that a large force of natives under
command of Evans, a Canadian, who
was then supposed, to do in tne vicin
ity of Moanalua. would also join him
at Punchbowl. In Evans' party
there were seven white men, all of
whom had seen service in Canada
-during the Rell rebellion. Part of
them came to Honolulu recently
under pay of a well known
royallet. With these parting words,
Wilcox and his party moved
away on foot and at a fast pace. The
remainder of the natives were told
beforehand to follow Dunu and join
Nowleln. Under a pretense of going
forward to see how the land lay,
Dunn managed to elude the natives
and started for Honolulu as fast as he
could travel. Travel-stained, footsore
and weary he reached the police sta
tion at the hour mentioned with a
story that startled all those who heard
its narration.
After a hurried consultation with
the officers theie, Dunn was taken up
to President Dole's residence, and
there recounted his experiences.
The recital of the story brought by
Dunn caused the Government to take
steps to occupy Puncboowl. In ac
cordance therewith, Companies " E
and B, ' with field pieces, were
ordered to that locality at midnight.
A short time afterward Punchbowl
and surrounding points had been oc
cupied by Government troops, no sign
of the enemy being visible. Up to the
hour of going to press they were still
in possession under a strong guard
and with artillery commanding the
important points of entrance. .
Natives There Believe Lilinokalani
is AgaiQueen.
The steamer Kaala, which arrived
last night, brought Information to the
effect tnat the natives at ivanuKu naa
been told that Lalluokalani had been
restored. Also that President Dole
was under arrest. This was supposed
to have been accomplished through
the white soldiers going over to the
side of the royalists. As startling as
the news seemed to be, It did not have
much effect on the natives, at least
they appeared somewhat indifferent
over the matter. None of the natives
residing in that section intended com
ing to Honolulu, so far as could be
learned. Officers of the Kaala knew
nothing of any attempt on the
part of the revolutionists to
capture the vessel while she was
lying at anchor near Koko Head the
other day. The striking Kahukn
Japanese laborers had returned to
work, and no rurtner trouoie waa an
ticipated among them.
Private. Arsenals Called In.
The stairway at the police station
was plied full of the most conglom
erate collection of guns and pistols
imaginable yesterday forenoon.
This was occasioned by the order of
the Marshal requiring all arms in the
city to be reported at the station.
Aged muzzle loaders, carbines of the
latest design, cartridge belts and
boxes, pistols and revolvers properly
tagged were stowed away till the
very topmost stair waa reached.
Coming Toward Town.
A late report last night was to the
effect that the men under Nowleln
would try to reach town by way of the
Pali. It was also claimed that about
500 armed rebels were in the vicinity
of Kaneohe ready to come up. The
authorities do not believe the last re
port on account of the number, but
are of the opinion that Nowleln will
collect at least 100 men during his
march to town.
Signal From Fucbbowl.
While the Government troops were
ascending Punchbowl last night they
saw a flaming light near the top.
Believing it to be signs of the enemy
double-quicK marcning soon orougui
them to the top. A well known prac
tical ioker had r receded the troops
and tied a lighted newspaper to a tree.

Captain Zelgler's company and ten
members of the Citizen's Guard ar
rived from Walalae last night about
7:30 o'clock. They spent tha day in
the "vicinity of Paul Isenberg's place
but did not meet with any rebels. As
they marched past Punahou a report
was sent in to the effect that the ene
my was approaching town.
Saddles and Horses Found.
While searching along the beach
yesterday the soldiers found a number
of saddles, most all new ones. They
were stored away in different houses.
Borne horses were seen wandering
about. The animals are supposed to
belong to the royalists who met at
Bertelmann's house on Sunday night.
Hidden in Mono a.
It is said that forty-three rebels are
hiding In Manoa Valley. They were
forced up there by Government in

men will be sent after them today.

Since then I have used a great
amount of medicine, but when I

it would injure my stomach, until

Experiences of Prisoners Taljen at
Diamond Head.
Satires Knew Little of Customs of War

trc Residence at Waialae, E.tc.
Mr. Haverhill, who wm one of those
detained by the rebels at Diamond
Head, was seen yesterday, and gives
the following story of his experience
there: , A
"On Sunday afternoon, between 2
and 3 o'clock, Mr. Nightingale and I
were walking along the beach near
Diamond Head. When we arrived
opposite Charlie Peterson's lookout
station a native stepped out from be
hind and commanded us to throw up
our hands. We did not comprehend
the situation at once, and made be
lieve we did not comprehend it for
quite a while afterwards.
"The native was not slow to make
known his wants, for he pointed a
loaded gun at us in a very dangerous
manner. He told us he waa put there
to guard the place and to allow no one
to pass. We thought we would go
back, to town, but upon walking
toward town the native came up to us
with his gun cocked. On asking him
what he wanted his reply was, 'I don't
know what I want exactly, but you
are my prisoners.'
He assured us he would not hurt
us. We 'jollied him up a little, and
he relapsed into quite a good frame of
mind. On looking up toward .the tel
egraph station we saw Charlie Peter
son and daughter, Messrs. Macdon
ald. Boss and Champagne, Mrs. Pray
and Miss Gurney, together with three
boys, under a strong guard. We
joined them, and with one native
ahead, two on either side, and the rest
of the guards behind, proceeded to
Antone Rosa's cottage, the rebel head
quarters. 'Before arriving at the house we
saw a string of men coming down the
bill with bags on their backs. These
proved to be cartridges, and I judge
each bag contained about a thousand
rounds. Other men bad their arms
filled with all the guns they could
carry. These, with the cartridges, we
learned afterward, were all new.
"We were taken into the cottage
and put under a guard of fifteen men
when two or- even one would have
been ample. We were allowed to
walk around and our treatment was
very kind indeed. In the room where
we were taken to get something to
eat were two great piles of cartridges.
"The natives were busy cleaning
the guns and wiping the grease off
the cartridges. I should judge there
were 300 stands of arms in all over a
hundred more than the men they had
to use them.
"We were given some old copies of
Police Gazettes, the Graphic together
with other reading' matter to while
away the time, and towards evening
we were called to supper. Mr. Ross
and I were standing together while a
native back of us was working with
his gun. All of a sudden there was a
report and a bullet whistled past my
head lodging in the ceiling. Powder
was blown into our faces and we con
cluded we wanted no more poi.
"The natives informed us they had
planned a movement toward town
and were going to stampede the
churches while they were holding
service. They said they were going
to set out to capture, the town.
"At about 7:30 we were called in
and made to sit down with our backs
to the troops. The men were called
up in two lines, and from what I
could judge, there were present at
least a hundred men, but we were in
formed that there were one hundred
and fifty-eight. Some of the green
ones were taken inside and given a
few lessons in the manipulation of the
guns. A little after this the whole
force, with the exception of the men
that were left to guard us, marched
toward town. We were given the
privilege of the house. The ladies
and gentlemen were given quarters
and a very unpleasant night was be
gun. "At 12 o'clock we knew from the
sounds about us and the uneasy atti
tude of our native guards that some
thing was wrong, and very soon we
learnel that the men, while marching
toward town, had been Intercepted
and fired into by a squad of mounted
police. The avenues were all guarded
and the natives seemed to be in a
terrible state of mind.
"Mr. Macdouald told them it wa
the custom iu foreign countries to
send the prisoners to a place of safety,
and as they might be shelled at any
moment by the Government forces
they had better get them out of dan
ger. They thought his a good plan
and instructed us to go to Paul Ien
berg's ranch, quite a distance away.
"As we drew near Isenberg's place
Willie Kinney came out to meet us.
It seems he had been shut up without
any avenue of escape to town.
"When we reached Mr. Isenberg's
home the owner came out and wel
comed us saying he did not have
much but what he did have was ours.
Mr. Isenberg's brother, who was also
; captured, sat down to the table with
; us.
; From a hill near Mr. Isenberg's
j premises we witnessed the first defeat
of the rebels. Four or five men were
I left behind the rocks of the rebel
I stronghold to fire upon the Govern
j metit forces while the rest of them
i retreated iu I he direction of Isen
1 hem's hou-e. Two t-t&rted up the hill
; where we were, and thinking they
j were coming for us we hid in the lan
I tana bushes. They passed us and as
j cendeti the hill t the very position
j we had occupied. Below us we saw
i two other men.
j "On goin bar-k to Isenberg's we
saw the steamer Kaala land and also
I witnessed the maneuvers of the tug
: boat.
; "Soon afterwards the President's
Aide de Camp carcie and told us the
! road to town was open. We were met
by the soldiers at the main road and
took the 'bus to town."
