Kennedy Examined In Ills Own Behalf?Lawyer A. D. Pugh Leavei the k Defense to Captain Berkeley. The Hustings Court opened at 9:30 o'clock yesterday morning and Juror B. A. Houl having recovered from the at? tack of siokness the trial of Jamos O. Richardson, A. Perry, D. D. Kennedy, S. W. Fuqua, Walter Davis and Brown MyerB, under indictment for rioting Soptember 20, was resumed. The first witness introduced was ex-Chief of Police M. C. Morris, who said he saw Fuqua, one of the accused, throw a stone at the jail door. Ho saw him again be? tween 12 and 1 o'clock. He heard Blchardson say that he would rather havo Mayor Trout than the negro. Officer Merriman was the next wltnesB and he testified that he saw Walter Davis, J. G. Blchardson and Abe Perry, who were standing by tho jail door on the right In question. He heard Richard? son say that the people were a set of cowards and wouldn't pay any attention to anything he would say. Policeman L. Johnson next testified as follows: "I was standing at thd jail door on tho west side; I saw stones thrown at the jail door; the attack was made in the neighborhood of 8 o'olock. The stones came ffom back of tbe crowd. I saw Walter Davis, D. D. Kennedy and Abe Perry, they were not throwing any stones, but wero hallooing about getting tho negro; I don't remem? ber seeing these three parties after tho shooting. I saw Blchardson afterward talking to the crowd; he said if they would follow him ho would get tho nogro. Richardson was making a speech on the sidowalk In front of Hotel Ponce de Leon. Eight or ton persons were standing around him." Station House Keeper J. H. Williams was placad on the stand, and Btatid that ho saw Walter Davis and Abo Perry thero that night. He didn't see Davis until after the shouting, when he came into the Btation house in company with four or five others, and asked for the prisoner. - Police Sergeant A. H. Griffin stated that he saw the attaok on tho jail about 8 o'clock the night In question. He saw Walter Davis throw a brick against the window which was the first one thrown. The witness caught Davis and tried to put him in through the window when the crowd took Davis away from him. After the shooting was over he saw D. D. Kennedy near the jail. Witness picked him up from the ground about four feet from tho west door of the jail. As one of tho grand jurors was slok tbe grand jury was then dismissed until this morning. E B. Woodward, who was on the stand Saturday, was recalled, and stated that on tho evening of September 20 be saw a voting man named Bishop, supposed to be the son of the injured woman, and heard him make somo in? cendiary remarks. A. J. Schanoks: "I saw Walter Davis in his shirt sleeves in the crowd saving, 'Come on, come on.' I saw Blchardson in tho crowd on Campbell street near the jail. I saw him on the steps of the courthouse making a speech to the effect that if the mayor wouldn't tell where the negro was they would go to the Ponco de Leon, get Mayor Trout and hang him. Mr. Blckardson was pretty well 'In his cups.' I saw Blch? ardson again on September 25 and heard him say that he bad no regrets, and by-he had no favors to ask for what be did on the night of the riot." J. C. Bawn testified: "At the time of tho firing I was in front of Nelson <& Myers. I saw two men immediately after the firing whom I afterwards found out were Mr. Blchardson and Mr. Ken? nedy. Mr. Richardson's idea seemed to be to get Mr. Trout and he was asking the people to get the mayor. Kennedy was one of the men who proposed to pull down Mr. Watts when he was mak? ing a pacifying speech. He was very positive that Kennedy was the man. The' witness was not sure of the exact words used by Kennedy but they were of the nature of lnoltlng a riot." J. H. Walthall's testimony was to the effect that he saw James G. Richardson later in the night and Blchardson was saying that they must find Mr. Trout and foroe him to tell whore the negro was. Just then some one came up and said Mr. Trout was at the Ponce de Leon hotel and Richardson and some others went to the hotel to see If he was there. Still later in the night heard Blchardson' say that he wanted 100 men to give him their names and they would go to the depot to keep the negro from being taken away on the train. J. Ii. Curlln: "Saw Abe Perry in the crowd that night. First saw J. G. Blchardson In front of the courthouse after the firing. He was asking the men not to run.." W. P. Moomaw stated that he heard Mr. Blchardson objeot to the militia being called out. Blchardson, he said, was a wild talking man when drunk, but was entirely harmless. Police Officer W. J. Bigney saw Walter Davis in the crowd. Also saw Mr. Blchardson. He was talking In a loud and boisterous manner. Mr. Richardson, he said, is very boisterous when drinking. The next witness introduced was C. E. Watson, who testified that he saw Jamos G. Blchardson soon after the firing at Nelson & Myers store. Richard? son, with sovoral others he didn't know broke open Nelson & Myers store and said they would got guns and what they wanted. The crowd was very boisterous. Ritbardaon was tho loader and was the first one to tako bold of tho door. OKE, VA., TUESDAY Richardson ran against the door several times with his shoulders and the door flew open. Police Sergeant R. H. Gold stated: "I saw Walter Davis urging the crowd to come on to make an attaok on the jail. I also saw him throw a rock agalnBt the door." Police Justice W. II. Turner testified that the only one of the defendants he saw at the attaok that he recognized was Abe Perry, who seemed to be in? citing the mob. Bo also saw a young man in bis shirt sleeves that was said tobe Walter Davis, but be didn't know him. George H Leigh stated that he first saw Mr. Richardson when the people came to the hotel to look for Mayor Trout. "I took Mr. Richardson and another man," ho said, "through a part of the hotel to look for Mr. Trout. I only showed them through four rooms, and assured them that Mr. Trout was not in the hotel, and they went ?ut." W. D. Mahonoy stated that he saw Walter Davis after the shooting. Davis seemed to be excited. He saw D. D. Kennedy making a Bpoeoh but did not hear what be said. He saw Abe Perry on the west side of the jail. He was under the influence of liquor. I saw James G. Richardson who said he was hunting for some one at Hotel Roa noke. Col. S. S Brooke saw Mr. Richard Bon in the clerk's office soon after the firing. There wore more than three per? sons together. They were looking for the negro. Did not bear Richardson say anything. A party tried to get into the vault. I opened the vault and Richard? son went into it. Charles G. Smith, proprietor of the Ponce de Leon Hotel, said: "I saw Richardson and Fuqua at the hotel after the shooting. They were there three times. The first time Fuqua led the mob. The second time there were about 200 people in the mob. I only knew Mr. Richardson. He said: 'Charlie, 1 want Mr. Trout; thereshall not be a hair of bis head harmed.' Richardson and one or two others went upstairs and came back and reported that Mr. Trout was not there. Some of the crowd were boisterous and said, 'Take Smith It ho don't bring out Trout.' I had advised Mr. Trout to leave the hotel after the first visit from the mob." AKTKRNOON BBSSION. The first witness introduced after tho dinner hour was City Engineer W. W. Dunlap, who described tho deed to the plot of land, on which is built the court? house and jail, and that tho jail was the property of the city. Luoian H. Cooko was examined and corroborated the statements of Engi? neer Dunlap. In reply to questions by Captain Berkeley he said he understood Mr. Richardson was a drinking man and a loud talker when drinking. Tho next witness was Polioe Officer W. C. Aiken, who testified that he saw Walter Davis, who seemed to be incit? ing a riot. He also saw D. D. Kennedy and A. Perry, who didn't seem to be doing anything particular. He did not see any of the other of the accused. The next witness was M. T. C. Jordan, who said he heard Fuqua express his opinion next day very treoly in regard to the militia and authorities in general. This testimony was objected to by Ed? ward Lyle. John J. Sbeehan was introduced by the counsel of D. D. Kennedy. He Bald he had known the prisoner about three years. He mounted the grind stones after Mr. Watts and Judge Woods had spoken and said tho prisoner had been removed from tho jail and the best way to find him was to dlaperae in squads and look for him. - Acord was next introducod in behalf of Kennedy. He saw Kennedy on the night in question, but did not hear him make any statement. D. D. Kennedy was then examined in his own behalf and Btated that he was around the jail as a spectator; that he was shot in the forehead, the effect of which dazed him for a while and knocked him down. When he went on Commerce street he heard mention made of dynamite, and fearing the jail would bo blown up, thought the best thing he could do was to state to the crowd that the prisoner had been removed. He thought the prisoner was in safekeeping and it would help disperse the mob to tell them he was gone. The witness stated that his intentions all through the night were in favor of law and order. He wanted the negro to have a fair trial. After an unsuccessful attemp to find J. C. Davenport, a witness for the pros? ecution, the commonwealth rested tho case. Thirteen witnesses for the defense were called and consulted with by the counsel for the accused. The first wit? ness for the defense was Andrew John? son, who saw Mr. Richardson at Nelson & Myers. He saw Mr. Nelson come from the rear end of the store, unlock the door and ask the crowd what they wanted. They asked for guns but when Mr. Nelson told them he had no guns, and asked them to leave, Richardson said: "Boys, we can't get any guns hero let's leave." -Acord saw Mr. Richardson on Commerce street immediately after the firing had ceased. The report was started that Mr. Nelson had offered to furnish guns to all who wanted them, and Mr. Richardson said, "We don't want any guns. For God's sake, if you have any influence help me keep this crowd back." The last witness introduced yesterday was D. W. Espenlaub, who met Mr. Richardson in the Ponce do Leon Hotel. As Richardson was coming up the steps he said: "There shan't be a hair hurt on that man's head (meaning Mr. I Trout), but all we want to know is where that negro is." A. B. Pugh here announced that he would have to leave the case owing to circumstances over which he had no control. He had perfect confidence in Mr. Richardson winning tho case and would leave it with Captain Berkeley. Court then adjourned until 10 o'clock to? day._ THE WKATUEK, Forecast for Virgin in: Slightly warmer, fair weather Tuesday followed by rain ?

He Believes That a Great Injustice was Done to the Queen?His Report of the Hauling Down of the American Flag. No Doubt But What the Previous Administration Expected and Worked for Annexation?Blount's Interview With Admiral Skerrett. Washington, Nov. 20.?Secretary Gresham to day made public all tbe correspondence between tbe Secretary of State and James H. Mount, commis? sioner paramount and later minister to the Hawaiian Islands. Mr. Gresbam, in giving this voluminous printed mat? ter to the press, explained that it in eluded everything connected with Blount's mission to Hawaii, with the exception of some statistical tables relating to the stands. The matter consists of three parts, the first beginning with a copy of the Instructions given Mount on March 11, 1893, prior to his departure from Wash? ington for Honolulu, and the last part ending with a briof letter of July 31, 1893, In which he concludes as follows: "Tbe condition of parties in the is? lands is ono of quiescence. The action of the United States Is awaited by all as a matter of necessity. The oondition, it can be assumed, will remain until the proposition to annex Is accepted or re? jected. In the latter contingency no sudden movement is likely to occur. Tho present government oan only rest on the use of military force, possessed of most of tbe arms in the islands, with a small white population to draw from to strengthen it. Ultimately it will fall without fail. It may preserve its existence for a year or two, but not longer." Then he adi3 that he has done his duty as well as ho could "considering I was surrounded by persons interested in misleading me," and his private affairs necessitated his return home. Secretary Grosham's letter of instruc? tions to Mount,dated March 11th, define clearly how far in the opinion of tho President the use of armed force is per? missible by the United States to pull down or sot up govornmens. Gresham says: "In the opinion of the President your authority, as well as that of commander of naval forces in Hawaiian waters, should be and is limited In tbe use of physical force to such measures as are necessary to pro? tect the persons and property of our citizens; and while abstaining from any manner of interference with tho domes? tic concerns of tho islands, you should indloate your willingness to intervene with your friendly office in the interest of peaceable settlement of troubles with tbe limits of sound consideration. "Should It be necessary to land an armed force upon Hawaiian territory on the occasion of popular disturbance when the local authority may be unable to Hive adequate protection to the lifo and property of the citizens of the United States the assent of such author? ity should be first obtained, if it can be done, without prejudice to the in? terests involved. "Your power in this regard should not, however, be claimed to the exclu? sion of similar powers by the represen? tatives of other powers for tbe protection of tbe lives and property of the citizens or subjects residing in tbe Islands. "While the United States claim no right to interfere in the political or domestic affairs or in the international oonfllcts of the Hawaiian Islands other? wise than as herein stated or for the purpose of malntaing any treaty or other right which they possess." In a letter, dated April 6, Blount an? nounces his arrival at Honolulu, and tells of bis refusal, against the strong urging of Minister Stevons, to accept a house and tho use of servants, car? riages, horses, etc , furnished by the provisional government, paying "what? ever I wanted for it, from nothing up." He also notes the refusal of tenders from tho ox-quoen and others. Appended to a letter of April 18. In which Mount deplores the perverted In? fluence of Minister Stevons and Consul General Severance, to which heasoribes the existence of the provisional govern? ment, is a stenographic report of an in? terview between Blount and Admiral Skerrett, In whloh the following occurs: Admiral Skerrett?I oalled at the Navy Department on the 30th of Decem? ber to see Mr. Tracy, tho Secretary of the Navy, to ask him if he had any final instructions for me, as I was going to leave the next day for San Francisco to assume command of tho Pacific squad roon. He replied: "Commodore. I have no Instructions to give you. You will go there and perform your duty, as I know you will, and everything will be satisfactory." I remarked: "Mr. Traney, I want to ask you about these Hawaiian affairs. When I was out there twenty years ago I had frequent conversations with the United States minister, Mr. Pierce, on tbe subject of the islands. I was told that the United States Government did not wish to annex the islands of Hawaii." Ho replied: "Commodora, the wishes of the Government have oh an god. Tbey will be very glad to annex Hawaii." lie said as a matter of course none but tho ordinary legal means can be used to persuade these people to come into tho United States. On April 21 Mount, for the second time, disapproved of a request of the provisional government that a force be landed for drill. Blount says ho called on tbo ox queen, and In for mod her that no person was authorized by President Clevoland nor himself to place the government cf the Unitod States in the attltudo of I desiring an adjustment between herself and tho provisional government, and the queen replied that she did not in R 21, 1893.

On May 4 Blount wrote: "At this time the indications aro unmistakable that a large majority of the people of the islands are utterly opposed to annexa? tion. I do not look for any obange from the situation through future informa? tion." In the third part of the correspond? ence is printed a statement of Minister Volney Ashford dated March 8, 1893, in which he says he has put in writing cer? tain information in regard to Hawaiian affaire at Blount's request. In this state? ment Queen Llluiokalani la spoken of as a woman notoriously loaded with the grossest social vioos but which state? ments are discredited by Blount. Blount's conclusions of facts are em? bodied in his report to Secretary Qres ham dated, July 17. It is a very long document, filling thlrty-soven large printed pages and indicates very clearly that he understood that he was to con? fine himself to a plain statement of facts, for nowhere he makes the slight? est suggestion or recommendation. The incident which created such a stir, that of hauling down the American flag, Blount describes as follows: "My Instructions directed me to make inquiries which, in the interest of can? dor aud truth, could not bo done when the minds of thousands of Hawaiian citizens were full of uncertainty as to the presence of American troop9, the American flag and tho American min? ister, it was necessary that all those influences must be withdrawn before these inquiries could be prosecuted in a manner befitting the dignity and power of the United States. "Inspired with such feelings and confident no disorder would ensue, I directed tho removal of the flag of the United States from the governnent bulldlag and tbe return of tho Ameri? can troops to their vosboI. This was accomplished without any demonstra? tion of joy or grief on the part of the populace. "Tho aftornoon before, in an inter? view with President Dole in response to my Inquiry, he said that tbe pro? visional government was now able to preserve order, although it could not have done so for several wteks after the proclamation establishing it." The report reviews in detail the sub- , sequent events, making much of the testimony tending to show that Minister Stevens recognized tho provisional "be? fore tho queen had been called upon to yield and quoting Minister Stevens him? self as saying that he knew the bar? racks and station house had not beon delivered up at the time; that he did not caro for that, for twenty-five men well-armed could have run the whole crowd. Steven's despatch to Secretary Foster is quoted where ho says he recognized the government after it was in posses? sion of all the government buildings and Blount said: "The qulok recognition was tho performance ot his pledge to the committee of safety." He criticises a statement made by the Hawaiian com? missioners to Foster and says: "Did the spirit of annexation mislead these gentlemen. If not what malign influ? ence tempted President Dole to a con? trary statement in his cited letter to the American minister?'1 Said Mr. Blount: "Tho loaders of tho revolutionary movement would not have undertaken It but for Stevens' promise to protect them against any danger from the government. But for this tbelr mass mooting would not have been held. Had tho troops not been landed no measure for the organization of a new government would have been takon. The American minister and the revolutionary leaders had doter mined on annexation to tho United States and had agreed on the part each was to act to the voryond." in concluding this report for tbe remaindor Is made up entirely of sta? tistical matter and a disquisition on the trade of this land and tue character of the population Blount sajs: "That a deep wrong has been done tho queen and tbe native race by Amerl cal oSlcials pervades the native n.inds and that the queen has a hope tor re? dress from tho United States there can be no doubt. . In this connection It is important to note the inability of tho Hawaiian people to oope with any great powers and the recogni? tion of It by resistance to their en? croachments. The suddenness of the landing of the United States troops, the reading of the proclamation of the provisional govern? ment almost in their presence and the quick recognition by Stevens easily prepared her for the suggestion that tho President of the United States had no knowledge of these occurrences and must know of them and approve or dis? approve of what have occurred at a fu? ture time. Her information and the prevailing sentiment among the nativos point to her bolief, as woll an their's, that tho spirit of justice on tbe part of the Presi? dent would restore hor crown.

Under the head of new business a petition for a new street sweeper was read. The board of publio works was ordered to purchase one out of the funds appropriated for street cleaning. On motion of Mr. Hough the matter of sweeping the streets by the city was referred to the street committee with instructions to investigate and report. The finance and street committees jointly submitted a report whloh con? tained a resolution that the olty audi? tor should not Issue any more warrants until further ordered by Council.

The report was adopted. Mr. Fackenthall, chairman of tho committoo on sewers, stated that tho commlttoe had been considering the difference of opinion between Contractor W. W. Fortune and tho city engineer about tho construction of section 10 and asked permission to examine the sewer in several places and ascertain which Is corroct. it Is the opinion of tho city engineer that thoexcavation is the same width as the conorote, while Mr. For? tune claims that it Is one foot wider.
