Two of the men who have been placed
under arrest as Instigators of the re-
cent insurrection In Hawaii are well
known in this city. A. P. Peterson is
the son of Daniel P. Peterson, for
merly of this city, and received his
education here. He was the nephew
of the late Lothrop Clark, who
a brother of Peterson's mother. After
attending the public schools young
Peterson was given a legal education,
and soou took high rank in his chosen
profession. After spending some time
in Honolulu he returned to this coun
try, and about a dozen years ago was
settled in Plymouth. .Later he went
back to Hawaii and acquired a repu
tation as one of the most astute law
yers in the kingdom. He became
attorney-general under Queen IAVh
regime, and occupied that position at
the time the royal government was
The father of Bob Wilcox is now at
Newport. His name is William Wil
cox, and he la now 70 years old. He
is living a somewhat secluded life
with a wife he has taken to himself
since bis return to this country.
He left Newport about 1843, in the
ship Mencars of which Captain Jos
eph Sherman, a Piewporter. was cap-
tain, on a whaling voyage as first
The ship made the Hawaiian islands,
as Captain Sherman, who had a num
ber of trinkets aboard, desired to stop
there for trading. Wilcox objected to
this, saying they did not care to spend
their time, as they had come out on a
whaling voyage. The result was the
parting of the captain and first mate.
Wilcox was tola that he might go
aahore If he didn't like the way the
vessel was run, and when ashore he
declined to return, and took to him
self a wife of native birth, who. It is
said, was of a royal family. He re
mained there until about a dozen years
ago, and while there engaged in maDy
lrlnrfa et knatnaaa
While on the 'islands be had five
sons born to him, and one of them,
jlkju, appeareu to ue quite ongat
young man, and as soon as he became
of age took a prominent part in the
affairs of the islands. Bob Wilcox
was in this country some years ago.
William Wilcox's family was a
rather notable one, consisting of five
sons and two daughters, with the blue
blood of royalty flowing in their veins.
Wilcox was from stock traceable back
to the Wilcoxes of Tiverton of the
His father was a whaling captain,
and while his son learned the carpen
ter's trade in Fall River it was not to
his liking, and he soon began follow
ing the sea. When he went out on
the ship Mencar, which was built
especially for Captain Joseph Sher
man, and afterward went into New
Bedford hands, there was no better in
his 11 tie afloat. Wilcox was a thor
ough Yankee, a bustler, and out
spoken. He worked the men hard and yet
had their confidence and good will.
When he left the Mencar at Hawaii
he joined a New Bedford ship, and in
two years it is claimed he was the
means of rilling her with sperm oil.
He left the ship at the islands and
took ashore some few thousand dol
lars as his share of the proceeds. This
he invested, and it was the means of
introducing him into the royal family.
A dozen or fifteen years ago, after
thirty years' residence there, he de
sired to see his aged mother, a resi
dent of Portsmouth, since deceased.
He returned to Newport, his wife
having died a year or two previous,
and attempted to settle down, but
various matters caused him to change
his mind, and, after taking to himself
a second wife, he returned with her to
The couple only made a couple of
years' stay at the islands, reverses,
loss of sugar crop, and such matters
having considerably shrunken the
old whaler's fortune. But Wilcox
held a couple of hundred acres of
choicest lands, which are today
worked by his sons, and is retained
by him for the benefit of his children,
especially his daughters, who, having
dark blood In their veins, he feared if
poor might not retain the high stand
ing he desired In. the reorganization
of the Island's society.
William T. Wilcox was one of the
first whites to settle in Hawaii, To
do so, his marriage with a native
woman was forced, but the marriage
appeared to be a perfectly happy one,
notwithstanding. The wife of ex
Postmaster Anthony of Portsmouth is
his sister. Bob Wilcox, the Hawaiian
leader, was named for his father's
brother, who was killed a dozen years
ago on the Old Colony railroad, near

CABINET EXAMINES EVIDENCE.
When Conclusive Evidence is Not
Shown Prisoners are Released.
Members of the Cabinet met last
evening in the marshal's office to
go through a mass of evidence that
has been prepared against a num
ber of prisoners, yet untried, by
Messrs. Kinney. Carter and V. R.
It is not generally known that
when the Cabinet meets at the
station house it is for the purpoee
of examining evidence,anu when the
members are satisfied that a man
cannot be convicted, they immedi
ately rive orders for a releaee. The
programme has been carried out in
a number of cases, necessitating
much work on the part of the min
isters. An official stated last nieht
I that the Government had no desire
to work a hardship on anyone, and
prisoners have been given the ben
efit of any doubt m many cases.
