For a number of weeks past the Government na3 known there was a plot on foot to overthrow the Republic and re-establish the monarchy. Men in the secret service oi the Republic had been hard at work and scares had been frequent, so frequent in fact that many were in clined to believe that the detectives were TnymfvTrrirtr stories. All attempts to cet at the leaders who were urging the natives to rise in rebellion were without effective re sults. On Saturday night there were in creased, evidences of an uprising. Ptu of natives were seen coming into the city from outlying districts and there was a general disposition towards CTiKytrytV" at "Waikiki rui Panama, outlying districts on either side of the city. Sunday all activity at the police station BAXTZX. 3QWLZ3I. irtii the Government became con vinced from the reports brought in that the time of striking the blow was not far distant. It was known that the lookout at Diamond Head had been approached to prevent his reporting the vessel from which, the arms were to be landed. Further evidence led the officials to order a search, of the house of Henry Bertelmann, situated some four "miles out of the city towards Diamond Head, for concealed arms Captain Parker a half-white and one of the most trusted and competent men on the police force, with a party of six native policemen, were detailed for the work. They went to the house ooo after dark, "where they were joined by Deputy Mirhal Brown, and were met bv a guard and challenged. As they advanced they were fired upon, the guards retreating to the house. The police retired and soon went forward accompanied by Representative-Elect Charles L Carter. Collector-General James B.

Mr. Brown was the first i to discover them and jumped forward j with the cry of "Here they are! Firing was as once opnd. Charles L. Carter sank to the ground, fatally wounded. Lieutenant Ho Li and Fo; iceman Logan were also wounded. The na tive in the canoe-hou?e fied up the beach, keeping up a running ire. Mr. Berteimann, Jim Lane and another native were eapturud.

Mr. Brown and Mr. Alfred Carter. Cap tain Parksr pursued the native thrvugh the woods toward Diamond Head. Charles Can-c and Lieutenant ixou were taken into the house, where those holding the premise- iaime diarelv telephoned for more men and medical assistance from the city. They expected to be attacked by the native at anv time, and probably would have been "had the natives known what a small force was in the hou-.

About 5 o'clock Monday morn ing he came Into the city, having been obliged to make a wide detour to escape capture. From the men captured, it was learned that the natives were divided into two companies, coalman led y Robert Wilcox and Sam owiein res pectively. Carl .vTidemann, son of Judge Widernann, aud William Greig r Umrxtriiit3 under Xowlein. The "plan of attack was for owIein'a party to march on the city from v.iirit:i Wilcox comieir from the rear of the city. Once in i the citv, they expected assistance i from a partv of natives who were to i come from Slani on the Kinao, also a force from Paiama and the many na- j tives in the city who were ready to I rise at a moment's notice- The at- j tack was to be made early Monday j morning. The prompt action of the Government overturned their plans. Daring Sunday night the Govern- ; meet was busy organizing their forces j and preparing for an attack on the crater of Diamond Head where the native forces had made their strong- j hni.f. -A Pahinpt meetmsr was nem and th-f advisability of declaring mar- I tial law was discus!.

At Sans Souci a desultory exchange of shot3 was kept up with no apparent effect on either side, though the shells from the Government forces kept the rebels in a decidedly nervous state. The rebels showed no disposition to advance upon the Government forces, and during the forenoon T. B. Murray with a squad of the Citizens Guard, a detail of regulars under Captain Zeig ler and a squad of Sharpshooters went to Moiliili to engage the rebels from that point and advance on the crater of Diamond Head. The tug Elea with, a squad of sharpshooters and a field piece on board went along the shore and shelled the natives stationed at An tone Rosa's place driving them to the crater. The advance of the men in the Pa lolo region met with, strong resistance. Tne shjupahooters advanced under cover of a field piece and captured fourteen natives who were caught in a tight place and gave up the ngnt. Lieutent Lad wig, of the regulars, was the only man injured, receiving a flesh wound in the leg. The firing from the sea cut off any retreat in the direction of Waiaiae. The presence of sixty-five men on the Waikiki road prevented any escape towards the city. These were under command of Lieutenant Coyne, who waa sent oat durinir the morning wrtn a field piece and additional men. When night fell Monday the rebels had been forced to the crater of the volcano where it was hoped they could be held tmtil morning. Thougn three avenues of escape were cut oif, their knowledge of the passes in the moun tains enabled them to get away to wards Waiaiae. During the early hours cf Tuesday morning no shots were fired from the top of the mountain-. This fact was looked upon with, suspicion by the military officers s rationed in the vi-irrit-w r? aftr-s conference. CaDtain Zeigier and Lieutenant Coyne decided to move closer ana tnae an ascent tu j the rebels' stronghold to ascertain if I thev had reallv fled or were merely resting on their arms. Captain Zeigler's company started to climb from the side near the ostrich farm while Lieutenant Coyne's com panv followed the beach. Two soldiers named Reed and Wagner, members of Company F, volunteered to climb the ide of the mountain, which they pro ceeded to do under cover of their com pany's guns. It took them some time to reach the top, and when they uH so the men were surprised to find no signs of the rebels. They immediate ly waved a handkerchief to their com rades beio jt to inform them that every thing was all right. This fact was afterward distorted into a story that the rebels had surrendered. The men found an empty demijohn, a large number of cartridges, a box of matches, and a clean cufil Some small pieces of cloth were seen lying about.

About 2 o'clock Wednesday after noon word was telephoned to tbe military authorities that the rebels had been surrounded in Manoa Valley, and that a lively battle was in progress. As soon as possible, orders were given to send re-enforcements, and be fore long about thirty men were on their way to assist the Sharpshooters. A field-piece was sent along also. The fighting was going en at the head of the Valley, near the falls. The rebel party consisted of Wilcox's men They were hiding in the brush, and were returning fire for fire until after cannon arrived. The gun was placed in the bullock-pen and a shell sent in the direction of the rebel camp. The aim was too low to do any damage, but the loud report scared the natives, who immediately took to the trail leading Pauoa Valley. Their forms could beeen between openings in the The Gjivernmect soldiers could not do mueA execution from their posi tion, but thev succeeded in killing one a" half-Portuguese and wounded another. Two prisoners were taken also, one of whom is Chas. Bartow. They were brought into town. Captain Kidwell and his sharp- j shooters left town about noon to join j Captain Zeigier of the regulars who: was on the field. While marching they saw men moving on the west j n Manoa.

The sharp- j shooters kept up their attacJc and did j not until the last man wa lost to sizbt. While the firing was going on aj fiag of trice was seen in an open ; stretch. It was waved by a native ! who was accompanied by two others. ! Later a body was found. One of the ; men had an ear shot away while the ; other two were uninjured. j The men were questioned and . stated that they were members of j Wilcox's party. According to their storv he had about sixty men with j him", ail natives. One said that Now- ; Iein was hidden in the eastern side of ; the vallev. He had about forty men. ; Wilcox had escaped in the direction ! of Pauoa Valley and had intended to j camp on the ridge. They had a good j suppiv of ammunition, but food wa ; becoming scarce although they fared j well while they were in Manoa. They ! had killed anox on Monday; other nrrli were furnished by natives living in the valley. Wednesday night the Ke Au Hou arrived from the tour of the islands and reported everything quiet, no knowledge of the trouble having been While the forces in the field were busy trying to corral the rebels, the oiScials in the city were by no means idle.
