REVOLT IN HAWAII
Continued from First Page:
the city was closed, and no people were to
be seen except those in the vicinity of the
police station. Every other man one met

badge showed that he was a member of the
Beyond a little excitement over the news
from the front and an occasional arrest the
city was quiet, save in the vicinity of the
Marshal's office. Here there was a con
stant clamor for arms by citizens who had
failed to provide themselves for an emer
gency, but none were distributed except to
well-known supporters of the Government.
One of the first to volunteer his services
was Joaquin Miller, the poet of the Sierras.
His example was followed by most of the
Americans sojourning here.
> The sensational feature of Tuesday after
noon was the appearance of two strange
barks and two small schooners off port. it
■ was suspected that arms and ammunition
were being unloaded from the larger to the
-.mailer vessels. The tug Eleu arid .the
steamer Claudine were each equipped with
a iieldpiece and a squad of riflemen and
sent out to investigate. The vessels were
found to be becalmed. They were
,-soarched, nevertheless, but nothing was
found. Every vessel coming into port is

searched, and none allowed to leave for \
the other islands. •
From the confessions of some of the
prisoners the entire crew of the steamer
Waimanalo was arrested. "When the
Marshal put them through his inquisitory
process the mate confessed. Seeing the
jig was up Captain Davis gave the whole
thing away. The Government claims to j
know everything concerning the trans- j
action, who furnished the arms, ordered ;
them and paid for them. !
It i- understood that a* prominent female j
capitalist put up $20,000 and another mdi- j
vidua! $5000; that Major Bewail, who went ,
with the late Royalist commission to Wash- I
ington but stayed behind on a plea of sick- .
ness, bought and shipped them. They I
were brought to this country from British j
Columbia on the schooner Norma, and
landed near Waianae. From there they
were brought to Diamond Head by Captain j
Davis in the Waimanalo and landed in !
whaleboats. It.was the intention to land;
the bulk of them at Kakaako, but th:*- was
prevented by the timely action of the Gov- j
ernment. Arms-are thought to be in the j
houses of white Royalists in Honolulu, j
who were to rise at the most opportune
moment. The original design of the Dia
mond Head rebels was doubtless to assem
•hie at Kakaako, arm themselves and rush
from there upon the Executive building.
British . Commissioner Hawes called
upon the Attorney-General to-day, but did
not ask for the release of any of the pris
oners. Nearly all the white royalists ar
rested are of British birth. v
: At the water front everything is tied up,
waiting for orders from the Government- to
resume business. Vessels are. two deep
along the wharves, and shipping is anx
ious for the trouble to cease that they may
get down to their regular routine. At the
Cabinet meeting yesterday morning it was
decided to hold all boats in port for another
twenty-four hours at least. Nothing was
said about the through steamer except that
every precaution would be taken to pre
vent rebels escaping on her. It is desired
to have the news go to the States by the
Alameda that "Wilcox has been captured.
It seems to be generally understood that
if Xowlein or Wilcox are captured they will
be shot within twenty-four hours after
ward on the public square.
Both banks and many of the business
houses were open to-day, and matters in
the city are fast resuming their normal ap
John Thomas "Waterhouse, the oldest
and wealthiest merchant in these islands,
was buried this afternoon. He was im
mensely wealthy, being largely interested
in real estate in Cedar Rapids and other
places in the United States.
.- At no time since the revolution broke out
have the rebels been nearer than four miles
The steamship Alameda arrived at 0
A. m., and most stringent measures were at
once adopted to prevent the escape of any
royalists to San Francisco! Even reporters
were not allowed on board, although every
courtesy outside of that was extended.
■.'; There is positively nothing new from the
seat of war, with the exception that a let
ter from Wilcox to the woman 'with whom
he was living in Honolulu was intercepted,
from which it was learned that the Govern
ment troops have got him correctly lo
cated. Some information as to his future
movements was also gained from this
Last night has been the quietest since
the outbreak, and were it not for the pres
ence of armed men on the streets . the city
would wear its usual aspect.
The Alameda was booked to leave at 3
r. m.. but was held until 5 o'clock. It -is
known that the Government is more than
desirous to send the news of Wilcox's cap
ture by her. If captured alive the news of
his execution may also go by the Alameda,
as that will quickly follow.
It may cause wonder that no mention
has been made of the ex-Queen. The rea
son is that very little attention is being
pa id to her. Of "course she has been looked
after, and beyond the fact that a quantity
of arms were* captured in her residence on
Monday her connection with the uprising
has not been established, it being generally
believed that the arms belonged to Sam
Nowlein. Should it prove otherwise her
deportation will likely follow. •
The man-of-war Esmeralda anchored in
port soon after noon on Wednesday, nine
teen days from Galapagos Island. She will
remain here about four days.
Secretary Narita of the Japanese lega
tion went aboard the Esmeralda on her ar
rival at Honolulu to learn from Captain
Garin if he was bound for Japan and other
information touching the reported sale of
the ship to his Government, as no instruc
tions had been received at the legation in
Alter learning the facts Mr. Narita re
turned ashore. He has requested the
press to deny officially that the vessel has
been purchased by the Japanese Govern
ment. The vessel was bound to San Fran
cisco and had put in here for fuel and pro
visions, and would continue her voyage in
three or four days.
The Esmeralda was formerly of the
Chilean fleet, but has been purchased by
Ecuador, and is now on her first voyage
under a new flag. She is out of commis
sion, therefore no salute was given or re
ceived. The ship will take in some 800 tons
of coal during her stay in port. She carries
eight large guns, has a crew of some 115
men, made up of Peruvians and Chileans,
and registers 3000 tons.

PEACE ON THE OTHER ISLANDS.
Nothing Is Known of the Uprising Near
Hoxoluu, Jan. 11.— The new steamer
Ke An Hou was dispatched to Maui early
in the morning of Monday in the com
mand of Mr. Baldwin, a well-known sugar
planter. His orders were to proceed to
Maui and learn the situation there. :
Thence he was to go to Mahukona, Ha
waii, where there is telephonic communi
cation all over the island, for the same
purpose. He had strict, orders' to say
nothing of the trouble. No steamers will
be allowed to leave for the other islands
until the revolution is ended.
The Ke Au Hon returned from the other
islands on Wednesday, with the cheering
intelligence that nothing was known there

Two Ships to Be Ordered at Once to the
Washington*, Jan. 18.— The uprising in
Honolulu created most intense interest in
Washington. It is predicted on all sides
that the administration will be roasted in
Congress to-morrow. Representative Hitt
of Illinois, chairman .of the Foreign Af
fairs Committee in the Reed Congress, and
now ranking Republican member of that
committee, will take advantage of the ex
citement caused by this uprising to urge
upon Congress the importance of cable
telegraph communication between San
Francisco and Honolulu. It is regarded as
certain that if this Congress takes no ac
tion the incoming Congress will pass a bill
granting a subsidy for this purpose. Sena
tor Frye said to The Call correspondent
to-night that he would push the cable bill
in the Senate.
Mr. Thurston, Hawaiian Minister," was
apprised of the news of a revolt by the
Call correspondent. He said: "Until I
have received full particulars of the affair
I have nothing to say, except that I am
satisfied that our troops are so well disci
plined that such an uprising could hardly
be dignified by calling it a 'revolution.' It
would only be the riot of a mob at most,
and although they might cause some
trouble their advantage, if any, could only
be temporary. I* am satisfied that the
trouble was quickly ended and without
Minister Thurston says that of course
Wilcox is subject to the death penalty.
Secretary Herbert, when interviewed,
affected the most stolid indifference about
the Hawaiian revolution. He said: "I
suppose I will catch it now for not having
ships at Honolulu. But I know how to
administer the affairs of my department,
and warships there could not have averted
Secretary Herbert was enjoying himself
to-night at a banquet given by Corre
spondent Carson in honor of the "Gridiron
Club." He did not appear in the least ex
cited, and as a member of Congress said to
night, was "fiddling while Rome burns."
Senator Morgan of Alabama, chairman
of the Senate Committee on Foreign Rela
tions, declines to enter into a discussion of
the question to-night.
"I would not care to pay what would be
the policy of the Government in this mat
ter without further thought," he said, "nor
would it be my place to attempt to point
out a policy for the administration.
"But," and the Senator spoke with al
most dramatic force, "they cannot over
throw the republic, nor will this Govern
ment stand by and see it done."
Later in the evening, after having more
fully perused, the dispatches, Minister
Thurston evinced a willingness to talk on
the situation. .
"Do you think the revolution would
have amounted to anything if the plans of
the rebels had not been prematurely dis
covered?" he was asked.
"No," said Mr. Thurston, "it is an ill
conceived piece of folly, with no possibility
of success, against the Government."
"What do you think of the chances of
the revolution being followed by subse
--I think the Government will take such
measures and will teach such a lesson there
will be little danger of a repetition of the
affair unless they (the rebels) receive fur
ther encouragement from abroad."
"Are there any men of any note among
i the revolutionists?"
"Absolutely none. Wilcox was a man
who was a violent annexationist, who was
an applicant for office under the present
administration, and when he did not get
in he turned Royalist. lie is absolutely

"So far as the Hawaiian Government is
concerned it is able to protect itself with
out any foreign aid. I will say, how
ever, that the presence of American men
of-war unquestionably exercises a strong
moral influence on all the disorderly ele
ment in the islands and such effect has al
ways been recognized by every one ac
quainted with the situation."

NOT A REPUBLIC.
Clans Spreckels Gives His Views on ; the
Hawaiian Situation. ;
When Clans Spreckels was asked last
night to express his. views upon the pres
ent situation in Hawaii he said that he '
had already outlined everything that was
to be said upon the matter in his previous
"The situation is exactly as I have ex
pressed it before," said he. "The country
is not a republic. Look at the situation as
illustrated by the number of voters before
and after the . accession s to power
of the Provisional" Government! In the
first instance there were 11,000 votes
cast by the natives and others, while in the
several instances 0n1y.2000 persons exer
cised the right of franchise, and of this
number at least 1000 were men who in
reality had * not the shadow of a right to
vote. They were simply men who had
lately moved into the country and who
were permitted. to vote the Provisional
Government. The situation is a simple
illustration of a minority ruling a majority
by sheer force of arms. In the so-called
convention by which President Dole
was elected the Provisional Government
appointed nineteen delegates, and allowed
the people to elect but eighteen, thus re
taining the balance of power in their own
hands and shaping the/actions of that
body to suit their desires. That majarity
appointed Dole, and specified the time he
should hold office. The natives and many
whites took no part in the election because
they refused to swear allegiance to the Gov
ernment—a necessary qualification to be
come a voter."
John D. Spreckels, who was present while
his father was expressing his ideas on the
uprising, asserted his belief that the- sugar
bounty system was directly the cause of
all the trouble.
"Prior to the enactment of the McKin
ley bill," said he, "the sugar-planters of
Hawaii were practically paid a bounty of
two and a half cents on every pound of
sugar they exported. This was by reason
of the duties that then were in force.
When these duties were abolished the
Hawaiian. ! were upon, the same plane as
the growers in other countries, and the es
tablishment of the bounty system was the
cause of a great deal of mature delibera
tion among them.
"The large plantation-owners and others
who would be benefited by annexation are
believed to be behind the trouble. The
sugar-growers reasoned that in the posi
tion of an annexed territory to the
United, States they would come in for a
share of those bounties, and other property
holder.-* argued with themselves that* the
actual enhancement in values of all kinds
of property which would follow annexation
could not but be of benefit to them. Strife
has been fomented with the sole object of
enforcing some action by the United States,
which would end in the desired result, and
these troubles which took root before the
sugar bounties were abolished ' have been
given a new impetus by the hope that they
will now be restored."
WILDER AND HATCH
Deem the Rising at This Time an 111-
Charles T. Wilder, Consul-General for
the Hawaiian republic, was busy reading
his correspondence when seen at- the Occi
dental Hotel last night. He laid his let
ters aside, however, and in answer to the
query, "Did you get full particulars of the
insurrection by the mail?'' said: "It was
a most ill-advised rising, and will have a
disastrous ending for those who partici
pated in it. The leaders will be punished
with the greatest rigor, and several of
them will be hanged. In concluding his
letter to me my father says: 'Do not worry
about the situation. Our troops are in
full control, and it is only % question of

business connected with the proposed

loss of one or two valuable lives and that

Hie Opinion of a Merchant Who Appears
to Be Well Posted.
J. C. Hastings, a merchant doing a great '
deal of business in the islands, appeared to
be well posted regarding the present trouble
down there. He arrived on the steamer
Alameda and told a pretty straight story
of the present trouble. He says that the
money which purchased the arms for the
rebels was procured by Billy Rickard and
Major Seward, mainly from Mrs. Tom
Foster. He also stated that Judge Weide
man knew a great deal about the plot to
seize the Government.
The arms and ammunition were pur
chased in Tacoma and shipped thence.
They were taken from the steamer off
Cape Flattery by a barkentine and landed on
the island of Lanai, from/which place they
were conveyed by steamer to Waimanalo
Island, Diamond Head and other places.
The whole thing was known to Marshal
Hitchcock, and he sent up Captain Parke
and six policemen to the- house of Henry
Bertleman, where the ringleaders were
known to be, to arrest them. Charley
Carter and James Castle followed the
police, and that accounts for the former
being fatally shot by young Lane.
The plot, which was led by R. W. Wil
cox, was given away by three women, who
became frightened. There were about 100,
Bastings says, who went to Diamond
Head originally. They lodged there, and
the Government troops, from a distance of
about a mile, have been firing at them,
which was returned for a time with some
energy, and one of the rebels ran to the
Government troops to surrender, but as he
did not know how to do it properly, was
shot and killed. This is the only casualty
that the insurgents are known to have
The Government troops finally dislodged
the rebels by bombarding them, causing a
retreat further into the interior.
Hastings declares that the uprising could
have been put down the first day if it had
been properly handled. 'f 77;

SAN FRANCISCO'S CAUCUS.
The Members Resolve to Act Together for
the City's Good.
Sacramento, Jan. 18.— The San Fran- i
cisco delegation af the Assembly held an ;
animated session to-day immediately after
the adjournment of the House. Fifteen of
the eighteen members were present, Chair
man Powers presiding. The Senatorial
question was not broached, but it was de
cided to meet 'frequently and discuss im
portant legislative measures affecting the
interests of San Francisco. The delegation
comprehends its own strength and knows
that a strong influence can be exerted if
the members can preserve harmony and
employ its united force to support a good
bill or oppose a bad one.
Dixon moved that seven members consti
tute a quorum for the transaction of busi
ness and this was accepted. Regular meet
ings are to be held every Tuesday afternoon
and special meetings as often as the chair
man may deem it essential to call the
members together. Every member is to be

he will be able to reach Sacramento before
the early part of next month.
CORRUPTION AT NANAIMO.
Interesting Revelations Brought Out by
Nanaimo, B. C, Jan. 18.— Great excite
ment prevails in this city over revelations
made during the progress of the Royal
Commission/now in session to inquire into
the actions of City Magistrate J. P. Planta
during the period he was in office.
Evidences of witnesses brought to light
a remarkable state of affairs affecting not
only the judiciary of Nanaimo, but the
management of the municipal finances.
This afternoon Magistrate Planta mys
teriously disappeared, and the police have
been unable to find the least trace of his
movements since he left the court at noon.
There being no means of leaving town by
boat or rail during the afternoon, grave
fears exist as to the probability of his hav
ing committed suicide in some out-of-the
way place. He was in a very despondent
The commission has continued during
the search for Planta, City Clerk Cough

Gough's evidence proved conclusively
that the finances of the city were handled
in a most careless manner, little or no
record being kept of receipts. 77
An examination of Gough's books
showed that large sums of the city's
money have been paid to his account, so
considerable difficulty is experienced in
tracing these sums, though Gough swears
everything is all right.
With regard to police appointments it is
shown that the City Council illegally
usurped the powers of Police Commission
ers. Gough's statements will, it is stated
authoritatively, result in another royal
commission to investigate the affairs of the

Rich Lands on- the Crow Creek Indian
Huron, S. D., Jan. 18.— The recent re
ceipt by the Huron Land Office of plats of
100,000 acres of land in the northwest
portion of the Crow Creek Indian Reser
vation, opens that portion of land which
was much sought after by settlers years
ago for settlement under the homestead
law. It will be remembered that from this
tract of land many settlers were expelled
during President Cleveland's former ad
ministration, because it had been thrown
open in violation of a treaty between the
Indian** and the Government.
Much of this land is Missouri-river bot
tom. It is well watered and has some tim
ber, and will be taken as soon as spring
opens. A number of applications by set
tlers have been filed.
THE SALE CONFIRMED.
Some Creditors of a Street Railway Shut
Tacoma, Wash., Jan. 18.— The sale of the
Point Defiance-street Railway to S. Z.
Mitchell, under the execution of the Charles
H. Hinchman mortgage, was confirmed
to-day by Judge Pritchard, and $62,000 of
the $82,000 realized from the sale was paid
over to satisfy that judgment. '
No provision was made for paying the
Lewis mortgage of $90,000. About $12,000
was ordered disbursed on other claims.
The case comes up again to-mor
row on the matter of discharg
ing the receiver and turning the road
over to the purchaser, S. Z. Mitchell of
Portland. When he secures it, it is re- i
ported it will be consolidated with the Ta- \

YMAT RELEASE GERONIMO.
Tlie Cunning Old Cutthroat Is Said to
Be Infirm, and Harmless.
Chicago, Jan. 18.— Major-General Ruger
has gone to the Indian Territory to inspect
the forts and to inquire as to the condition
of Geronimo and his -300 fellow-prisoners of
war confined at Fort Sill.
While at Washington at the beginning of
the year General Ruger had a conference
with the department concerning the pris
oners, and it is probable that a recom
mendation of release will follow the re
port of - the general. The army officers
believe that Geronimo is now so old and
feeble and broken in spirit that he would
not give the Government more trouble.
Charges Against Peixoto.
Panama, Jan. 18.— de Janeiro ad
vices state that there is anxiety as to the
result: of the accusations against Peixoto,

a Congressional committee last night.
President Moraes and the Minister of
Justice held a long conference, and after-"

Senators known to'be loyal to him. \ Peix

Fort Worth, Texas, Jan. 18.— Captain
Fant, one of the great cattle-raisers of
southwest Texas, says there is a marked

ranges in excellent condition, and there
is more grass than stock to eat it. Ship
