revolution in the Islands but there will
be one and no mistake before long The
measures by which tho queen was
overthrown were revolutionary
enough Ibut the whole proceedings
were ns quiet as a district school elec
tion X was there at tho time and wit
ncssed every detail When the sailors
und marines from tho Boston landed
with their superior rifles nnd machine
guns resistance was on the fnco of
things so useless that nothing could
be done by any party that faorcd tho
maintenance of the throne When
tho armed Americans were withdrawn

of forming- a republic in the beginning
but they wore about ready to kilt mo

nothing fclnco then they have written
ine asking rue to come oer and help
them organize a Republican govern
ment I have told them that I waa
through with the whole business and
they oould work their own silvatlon
There are 14 000 voters on the Is

by a phow of force that a HttlA prepara
