tho Ex-Quoon Liliuokalani and
Hor Famous Boston Baorotary,
Who 1b Now at Homo Picturesque
Description of a Boyal
Court in America.
Oapt. Julius A. Palmer, guiclo,
philosopher aud friend of Hor
Majesty, Queeu Liliuokalani of the
Hawaiian Islands, is back iu his
picturesque aud comfortable abiding
place on the top floor of tho building
No. 10 Broad street, and is sot-tied
down to tho pursuit of those
occupations, literary and scientific,
which engaged hia attention before
ho becamo one of tho most conspicuous
officials in the court that
has accompanied the dethroned
soveroign in her recent travols in tho
Hardly a man in Boston has had
a more interesting career or possesses
a moro fascinating personality
than Capt. Palmer, and tho
speculations which his methods
and movements have invited for
many years have been multiplied by
his relations during the last seven
months with the unhappy and remarkable
woman to whom he invariably
refers as "her majesty."
The captain now makes for the
first time a complete statement of
the story of his acquaintance with
Liliuokalani, and The Globo publishes
hero what never has been told
in print before of tho history of his
relations as private secretary and
literary counselor to tho lady who
once occupied a throne in the far-off
islands of the Pacilic.
"I met Queen Liliuokalani for the
first time," Baid the captain, "at a
state ball on board a French frigate
in the harbor of Honolulu. I was a
merchant there at that time, moro
than 20 years ago, aud feho was then
priucoBS and heiress apparent to tho
1 throne. I saw her for a few momonts
only, aud oxohanged barely a dozen
words with hor.
"In 1887 I mot hor again, this
time in the city of Boston, at the
home of Gov. Ames. I had served
the governor as interpreter on the
occasion of tho visit of the Spanish
editors in 1887, aud he told me that
ho wanted mo to be one of his guests
at a private reception at his new
house on Commonwealth av.
"1 did not see the Queen again
until 1893, when I visited Honolulu
as the representative of the Boston
Transcript. I was commissioned to
go to Hawaii to ascertain the real
faots in relation to tho so-called
rovolution there of tho 17th of January,
1893, and I reachod the islands
in December. I was chosen
for tho mission -because I had lived
in Hawaii for ouo reason, and because
I had been an outsido contributor
to tho Transoript for 20
years, for another reason,
"I rnado what I believe to have
beau a thorough and impartial investigation
of tho situation there,
and tho result of my findings was
preponderantly in favor of tho view
that tho royal family and the nativo
people of the islands had suffered
tho grossest tyranny at the hands of
the people who had established tho
provisional govorumont thore."
"Aud you mot the queeu again,
"Yosj 1 saw tho lady twine in tho
threo months that I spout iu tho
islands. Onco I had the honor to
be received at hor private residence
in company with Mr. A. S. Oleghorn
the father of tho Princess Kaiulani,
and again I called on her in company
with a mutual friend, a lady.
"Those four visits," coutiuuod tho
captain, "constituted tho solo justification
for tho stories that 1 had
formed a deep attachment for tho
person of tho Queon, stories which
wero repeated with multiplied detail
when agaiu, in 1895, 1 went to
the Hawaiian Islands, thin time as
the reproEontativo of Hip NVw York
"Did you soo tho Queeu on your
"I did not see her at all. The
provisional government would not
permit mo to visit her, refusing to
allow me even to deliver lettors to
her from friends here in tho United
States. And when I mado a formal
domaud on the government for permission
to deliver tho letters unsealed
and in the presence of their
officer, I was peremptorily informed
that I would not be permitted under
any circumstances to hold any
communication with her. So you
see, I did not moot Her Majesty
during my second visit."
"But, captain, Her Majesty waB
not iiiBensiblo of tho efforts that
you had made in her behalf?"
"No; she had hoard from me, and
had boeu informed of my deep interest
in her cause and tbo cause of
hor wronged people. She had received
from mo copios of the articles
1 had written about tho situation
while I was iu her country as
the representative of the Transciipt,
and I had very earnestly assured
tho lenders of hor party iu Honolulu
that if thoy evor discovered
any way in which I could be of use
to the Queen and hor pooplo I would
bo ready to answer any call on my
services, and would be glad to do
anything and overything without
money and without price."
"Was any call ever mado on you?"
"Well, yos, but I do not care to
state tho nature of it uow. As a
matter of fact, I returned to the
United States in Juno, 1895, with an
important mission, which I fulfilled
within six months after my arrival
hore, and fulfilled it to the satisfaction
of those who had entrusted it
"And now, captain, when did you
see the Queon again, after your last
meeting with hor on tho first of
your two visits as a correspondent?"
"J. did not see tho Queen again
until I mot her in Boston ou Christmas
Day of 189G. She telegraphed
me from Washington that sho was
on hor way to Boston, and asked me
to meet hor on her arrival. I mot
her at the Park Square station and
took her to the Parker houeo, where
sho was received by her husband's
cousin, Mr. William Lee, with hU
wife and daughter, Miss Alico Loo."
"Aud that was the beginning of
your relations with her as secretary
in this country?"
"Yes, that was really the beginning,
and from that time until
August of this year I have beon
constantly with her."
"Was there auy formal engagement
of your services by tho Queon
as private secretary?"
"Not at that time. I had met a
lady whom I regarded as a porsou
of remarkable Christian character.
Sho had been tho victim of gross
injustice. My sympathies had boeu
onlisted in her causo. Sho was to
me not only a Queon who had boeu
wrongfully doprivod of her hereditary
and constitutional rights as a
soveroign, but also a woman who in
one soubo occupied a louoly and
desolate position that appealed to
every ohivalous impulse in tho heart
of a man. I saw that I could be of
service to her, that I could make a
little lots stony tho path whiah a
cruel fate had forced hor to tread.
I Bimply undertook to render to hor
those littlo polite services which
gontlomou render to ladies tho
world over. She was glad to avail
herself of my familiarity with tho
city and with tho circumstances of
hor own causo iu this couutry."
"What services did you render to
"From tho day that Bho arrived
hero until Jan. 22, 1S97, whon she
left for Washington, I took ohargo
