ABDICATE OF QUEEN LILIUOKALANI Safety at the Price of a Kingdom. i OF LITTLE MOMENT HOW. For the Cause of the Royalists j Is a Lost Cause. I THIRSTON HAS 50 FAITH, j But lie Says the Move Will Make the Natives Republicans. THE STKAJGE STORY OF A CRUISER. It In Said in Honolulu That the Ex-Queen's \ Partisans Knew the Philadelphia Was doing Away. Honolulu, Jan. S. — The ex-Queen has relinquished all her rights to the throne of Hawaii. Following her arrest the ex- Queen was allowed frequent interviews with Charts B. Wilson, ox-Marshal under the monarchy, 11. A. Widemann, who re cently visited the United States and Europe on her behalf and who. by the way, has a £-(2,000 mortgage on nearly every thing the ex-Queen owns, and her attor ney. Paul Neumann, but no one connected with the Government saw her. The result of these frequent interviews became ap parent la.<-t Thursday, when she requested that some person connected with the Government be sent to her, as she had an important official communication to make. Attorney-General Smith at once went to her rooms and found there besides the ex- Queen: William G. Irwin, H. A. Wide mann, Samuel Parker, J. K. Kahookano, Charles B. Wilson, Mrs. Wi!^)n, Paul Neumann, General A. S. Hartwell and W. i ley. Mrs. Dominis in a few words stated that she desired to surrender all her claims to rone, and offered her formal abdica- President Dole in the shape of a document drawn up by Judge A. S. Hart well, who was consulted by Mr. Wilson, Mr. Parker and Mr. Neumann about the matter and acted as advising counsel for them, but not strictly as attorney for Lili- uokdla.iL .linlge Hartwell attended the execution of the document at the special ' of Mrs. Dominis, Mr. Neumann and Mr. Wilson. Immediately after her arrest C. B. Wilson had been acknowledged by the Government as the ex-Queen's busi ness representative. Attorney Neumann then read aloud the formal abdication. Her ex-Majesty also read the document aloud from beginning to end and then signed both the document and the oath of allegiance to the republic, while Notary Stanley affixed his jurat. Mr. Neumann returned the document to the ex-Queen, informing her that she might select any of those present to de liver it to President Dole. She handed it to Mr. Wilson and requested him to con vey it to the President. Mr. Wilson re quested Mr. Parker to accompany him to the executive chamber. They went there forthwith and were presented by Major George C. Potter, airi-rte-ramp, to Presi dent Dole, 8. M. Damon, Minister of Fi nance, and W. O. Smith, Attorney-Gen eral. J. A. King, Minister of the Interior, was absent on the cruise of the Govern ment steamer Eleu, and F. M. Hatch, Minister of Foreign Affairs, was in the Vnited States. Mr. Wihon said: "Mr. President, I have the honor to present to you a communica tion from ex-Queen Liiiuokalani." Mr. Damon asked the deputation to be seated, but Mr. "Wilson suggested that, as the President would desire to give the doc ument some consideration, they had hotter retire. President Dole accepted the sugges tion as a proper one and Messrs. Wilson and Parker retired. A Cabinet council was held immediately and it was decided to keep the matter secret until it could be presented to the executive and advisory council at a special meeting to be held on Friday. That body soon settled the only question brought be fore it, Which was the question of the im mediate publicity of the letter of abdica tion or not, in the affirmative, and the document appeared in the afternoon papers in full, as given below: Island of Oahu J Honolulu, January 24, 1895. j To the Honorable Stanford hallard Dole, Presi dent of the Republic of ITawaii— Sir: After a full and free consultation with my personal friends, and with my legal advisers, both be fore and since my detention by military order in the executive building, and acting in con formity with their advice, and also upon my own free volition, and in pursuance of my un alterable belief and understanding of my duty to the people of Hawaii, and to their highest and best interests, and also for the sake of those misguided Hawaiians and others who have re engaged in rebellion against the repub lic, and in an attempt to restore me to the josition of Queen, which 1 held prior to the 17th d»y Of January, A.

On this 24th day of January, A.

I, II. I IOK A LAN I DOMINIS. Subscribed and sworn to this 24th tiny of Janu ary, A. D. 1895, before me. W. L. Stanley, Xotary Public. The total surrender of Mrs. Dominis to SAN FRANCISCO, THURSDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 7, 1895. the republic has of course created much talk, but it seems to be generally regarded as an abject plea for mercy, in view of the discoveries made of her complicity in the rebel plot. People are asking what did she have to abdicate, whether she has the j power to yield up the claims of her heirs and what is the value of her oath? They say she swore to support the constitution when she ascended the throne, and imme diately commenced scheming to overthrow it. By those who are in a position to know j there is no doubt that the Government values the document of abdication most highly for the effect it will have on the j ignorant natives whom she has released from all duty they felt to her under that hereditary devotion to their chiefs which has hitherto restrained a large proportion of them from acknowledging and paying allegiance to the republic. Of course it puts an end to any royalist party in the islands from henceforth. At 3 p. m. to-day, an hour before the sail ing of the Australia, the Government made public its reply to Liliuokalani's let ter of abdication. The following is the complete text: Exkcutive Building, j Honolulu, January 29, 1895. S Madam: A document executed by you pur porting to contain an abdication and renun ciation of all sovereign rights heretofore claimed by you has been delivered on your behalf to the President. As you were under ar rest at the time this instrument was signed, it is desired before accepting and placing the same on tile to make clear to you, in order that no misunderstanding may hereafter arise, the views of the Government in this matter: First— The execution of this document can not be taken to exempt you iv the slightest degree from personal and individual liability for such complicity as due investigation and trial may show that you had in the late con spiracy against the Government and the con sequent loss of life, which position is recog nized by you in your letter. Second— lt cannot be conceded that such rights and claims as you now voluntarily re linquish have had any legal existence since January 14, 1893, when by your public an nouncemcnt that you no longer considered yourself bound by the fundamental law of the land under which yon took office, and by your acts in attempting by the mere exercise of your own will to establish a new system of govern ment, the contract existing between you and the people was dissolved, and all sovereign rights theretofore vested in you were lost. The statement by members of your then Cabinet that they could not control your proposed ac tion, and their appeal to citizens of Honolulu was the next step which led to a resumption by the people of the rights of government. Third— So far as your communication may be taken as a notice to the disaffected that it is your desire that the republic shall be recog nized by them as the sole and lawful Govern ment of the country it is fully appreciated. In this connection your unselfish appeal for clem ency for those who took part in the late insur rection will receive full consideration. • William O. Pmith, Attorney-General. To Mrs. Liliuokalani Dominis. The arrest of Liliuokalani was made on Wednesday, January 16. The arrest was made very quietly at 10 o'clock in the morning by Deputy Marshal Brown and Captain of Police Parker. The order of arrest was to deliver her forthwith to Lieutenant-Colonel Fisher, commanding the military at the executive building. The arresting officers found the ex-Queen alone, although there were a number of native guards about the residence. These offered no resistance, however. When the order of arrest was read to her, Liliuokalani merely said, "All right, I will go," and re quested time to dress, which she did in a few minutes. She was accompanied by Mrs. Charles Clark, her lady-in-waiting for some time past. The latter carried a small hand-satchel. The ex-Queen was dressed entirely in black. The royal prisoner was placed in a hack by the officers and rapidly driven to the executive building, where she was taken to the upper story, where two rooms had been rapidly prepared for her use. These have lately been used as the Auditor- General's office, but in the days of the monarchy were the private apartments of Prince David, the ex-Queen's nephew. There was a slight pause in the hall and some talking among Cabinet and other officials, but nothing was said to the prisoner, who, beyond shedding a few tears, manifested no emotion. In the city the news of the arrest was hardly credited for a time, but after it be came established there was a general feel ing of relief among the supporters of the Government and of consternation in the royalist ranks. There was no talk of any attempt to release the prisoners, and any such would have been futile, as the execu tive building is too well guarded. It is not known if Liliuokalani will be placed on trial for treason or conspiracy or whether her arrest was merely a pre cautionary measure. That she will be de ported eventually there is very little doubt. There was great excitement at the various headquarters about 10 p. m. of the day of the arrest when it became known that a wagon-load of arms and ammuni tion had been unearthed at Washington place, the ex-Queen's late residence. The general public knew nothing of it until the next morning, as all Honolulu retires early during the continuance of martial law. Acting upon information furnished by Charles Clark, the husband of the Queen's companion, who has been a hanger-on at Washington place for some time, but is now under arrest for conspiracy, Deputy Marshal Brown and Captain Parker searched the cellar under the house and unearthed a small arsenal. It consisted of 11 pistols, 13 Springfield rifles, 21 Winches ter rifles, 5 swords, '6S full belts of rifle car tridges, 8 full belts of pistol cartridges, 1000 assorted cartridges and 21 dynamite bombs. A cocoanut shell was used for one of the bombs, three were of metal and the others of cement. They wore all pro vided with short fuses and were ready for instant use. There were about forty na tives about the ouilding, but they offered no resistance to the search. Most of the rifles were new, and, with the exception of being rusty from the damp earth in which they were buried, were in pood condition. It seemed to be the general opinion that the ex-Queen was aware of the secreting of arras in her residence, and that the Gov ernment had proof to that effect. The bombs were supposed to be used against the Central Union Church, against which the royalists seem to harbor a particular spite, as all the leading members of the Government are regular attendants there. This church is just across the street from Washington place. The bombs were se creted under the house two weeks ago. The powder with which they were filled was purchased some time ago, ostensibly for use in wrecking the bark j. N. Wilcox, now lying ashore on the island of Molokai. It was concealed on the steamer Waima nalo until used. Several other houses of royalist? were searched, and in nearly every instance arms and ammunition were discovered. As the proclamation made at the first out break of the rebellion required these to be delivered up to the authorities, all persons in whose houses such are now found are liable to arrest and imprisonment. The castings for the metal bombs were made by White "& Ritman, the proprietors of the National Iron Works here. Their books have been examined and show that twenty were ordered by and charged to Henry Bertelmann. One of these had a flaw in it and was thrown away, seven are in the possession of the authorities and twelve are yet to be accounted for. White & Rit man claim the bombs were made for orna ments for iron fence railing, but will have some difficulty in making the authorities think so. All of the volunteer military companies have been called in and were dismissed from active service. The Australia was late in reaching here, owing to repairs made in San Francisco. Before the vessel reached tha wharf she was boarded by the police, who were in search of W. H. Corn well or Rudolph Spreckels, both of whom were expected. They are wanted on a charge of treason. Corn well was on the passenger list, but he decided to remain in San Francisco. Spreckels did not come either. MOST STARTLING IF TRUE. The Hawaiian Royalists Knew the Phila delphia Was Ordered Home. Honolulu, Jan. 30.— During the past few days several prominent royalists have ad mitted to your correspondent that the fact of the withdrawal of the Philadelphia was known to them weeks before it actually oc curred. In an interview held with one of them on the 27th, the statement was made and substantiated that immediately after the arrival in Honolulu of the ex-royal commission, composed of John A. Cum mings, Samuel Parker and Judge Wide rnann, from their trip to Washington, t§e word was passed around to royalist leaders that the United States war vessels would be withdrawn, and that, although they had been unable to secure a personal interview with Cleveland, they had a private assur ance from Secretary Gresham to that effect before leaving Washington. It is to this assurance from the commis sion that the royalist plotters derived comfort and hope, and indirectly this very assurance led to the organizing of the rev olutionary gang. With a United States war vessel here the thing would never have been thought of seriously, but know ing that none would be here for months, the royalists were encouraged to take ad vantage of the opportunity. The fact that the British war vessel disappeared very soon after the commission returned lends color to the truth of the above. The arrival of the Australia with the news of the dispatch of the Philadelphia to Honolulu was greeted with much satis faction by the American colony. This, however, was turned into a howling lament when the instructions given to Admiral Beardslee by Secretary Herbert and Presi dent Cleveland were made public. The gist of these, and the main point which in terested Americans here, is in the follow ing, extracted from Secretary Herbert's in structions to the admiral commanding the Philadelphia, which says: An American citizen who, during a revolu tion in a forgign country, participates in any attempt by force of arms or violence to main tain or overthrow the existing Government, cannot claim that the Government of the United States shall protect him against the consequences of such act. As ninety-nine hundreths of the Ameri can colony here have borne arms in sup port of the republic during the last two weeks many of them are wondering just now, under Secretary Herbert's instruc tions, "where they are at." Government officials are still searching for several hundred pistols imported by the rebels, but, so far, have been unable to locate them. One hundred extra copies of the Call of the 19th ult. sent to The Call correspond ent, but erroneously appropriated by a news firm, were sold in less than tive min utes. Five hundred copies of this issue could have been disposed of easily. It is generally conceded that the account of the insurrection published by The Call was the most complete and impartial of all the San Francisco papers. MUSTEK WILLIS MAKES A PROTEST. This Latest Development Likely to Give President Dole Some Trouble. Honolulu, Jan. 30.— Since the arrival of the Philadelphia United .States Minister Willis has assumed an oppressive attitude, and from trustworthy sources it is learned that he has made objections, both written and verbal, to the powers of the military court now sitting. He seems to take the same views as Paul Neumann, counsel for the prisoners, that offenses committed previous to the date on which martial law was proclaimed should be tried before a civil court and jury. The text of his objec tion cannot be obtained at this time, but it is understood to be of a nature to cause the Government more uneasiness than anything thjit has taken place since the beginning of the rebellion. It is understood that Willis has inter ested himself in the cases of Louis Marshall and Thomas Walker, both of whom have claimed the protection of the United States. Marshall is charged with open rebellion. Walker pleaded guilty to treason. Admiral Beardslee is a stranger here. But little is known of his stand in regard to this Government. In close Gov ernment circles it is feared that ho might co-operate with Willis and land forces to prevent the rinding of the court, when it refers to American prisoners, from being carried out. Minister Willis was seen this morning, but he declined to make any statement for publication. He would not deny or affirm the fact that he has objected to the juris diction of the court. President Dole was seen previous to the departure of the steamer. He stated that he was not aware that any written objec tion had been received from the American Minister. He admitted that in the course of a conversation Willis implied that he would object. British Commissioner Hawes has not given the Government any trouble. He has pursued a policy of moderation since the trouble began, chiefly, so it is stated, because he is in doubt regarding the legality of the claims of many Englishmen, who forswore their allegiance some years ago when they be came citizens of the country under the monarchy. From the present indications it looks as though the Supreme Court will pass on the constitutionality of the Military Court. This cannot be done until martial law is rescinded, as writs of habeas corpus can not be sworn out while it is in force. WILCOX AM) mum safe IN JAIL. Capture of the Two Chiefs of the Rebels in the Field. January 14.— This has been a great day for the republic. Since noon the rive prominent leaders of the rebellion have been captured and are now at the police station. Soon after noon a detachment of the Citizens 1 Guard, under command of W. A. Kinney, a prominent young lawyer of Honolulu, brought in Sam Nowlein, William Greig, Carl Widemann and Louis Marshall and turned them over to Marshal Hitchcock. Their arrival in the city was greeted with loud cheering and other evi dences of satisfaction by the people. The story of their capture is as follows : Captain of Police Parker and some men left Waialae on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, moving in the "direction of Koko Head. They met and questioned a man named Auld, formerly Superintendent of the Insane Asylum, but he claimed he knew nothing of the rebels or their move ments. Parker then drove on, and toward dusk reached Niu again on his way to camp. He felt certain that Auld knew something, and finally made him admit that a native by the name of Paeaina had approached him on Wednesday, stating that he wanted to secure ft whaleboat. This information was enough for the police cap tain, who hurried to Waialae and tele phoned to Deputy Marshal Brown/ who was at Manoa, to arrest Paeaina at once. Yesterday morning about 3 o'clock Mar- PRICE FIVE CENTS. shai Hitchcock and Henry "Waterhouse went over to "Waialae to see Parker. They were told of the attempt to escape, and given the name of the native, and finally located him and placed him "under arrest. He was brought into town. Of course, he denied any knowledge of the whereabouts of Nowlein and the others. He was not questioned again until 9:30 o'clock, when Chief Justice Judd and W. A. Kinney took him in charge. He made a firm denial again, but finally, after a great deal of quiet persuasion, he commenced to tell the truth. He admitted that he went in search of a boat at Nowlein's request. He re turned on Wednesday evening about mid night and reported to Nowlein that he could not secure a whaleboat. He said that he had been feeding Nowlein all along. Nowlein had told him that he had three others with him. Paeaina had not seen them, but was of the opinion that they were Haoles. His daughter had brought poi, beef and fish to the men. The man then gave the hiding-place of the four rebels. They were in the bushes below Kanewai spring, mauka of Cleghorn's new windmill. As soon as the statement was made Mar shal Hitchcock sent W. A. Kinney and a number of men after the rebels. They reached the district in which the men were hidden, but the exact spot could not be located. The native police and others were thrown in a circle to prevent the escape of Nowlein or his companions. Mr. Kinney then went to Paeaina's cottage and found his family. They would not give any information at first, but finally through threats a son was prevailed upon to visit the rebel camp and ask for the sur renner of the men. lie was instructed to inform them that they would not be harmed and would be conveyed safely to the station-house. His mission was suc cessful, and at the expiration of ten minutes the four men were seen emerging from the bushes. They were taken in charge and placed in carriages. The ride in town was uneventful. Their camp was discovered this after noon by Patrolman Nelson and some native police. Two sleeping-mats, cups, spoons, sugar and some crackers were found. The camp was located in a dense underbrush, which could only be reached by crawling on hands and knees. It was located but 300 yards from the Waialae road. No arms were found. Nowlein and his companions stated when they sur rendered that they threw away their rifles when they went into hiding. But this was only the beginning of the end. At 5 p. M. the welcome news was whispered around from mouth to mouth that the arch-rebel himself, Robert Wilcox, had been captured and was on the way to the police station. At once an immense crowd gathered in that vicinity to await his ar rival. This took place in a few minutes after the first news of his capture. He was found less than two miles from town in the vicinity of the Kalihi leper receiving sta tion and not a mile from the Government penitentiary. The circumstances which led up to his arrest show that he deliberately deserted his followers and, taking advan tage of information he had secretly ob tained of the situation in Honolulu, sought only his own safety, regardless of that of the poor natives whom he had deluded to their own destruction. During the latter part of Monday after noon the authorities received information through Charles L. Hopkins that the much-wanted rebel-leader could be found in one of his houses on the reef, near the Kalihi leper station. Acting upon this in formation, a party of picked men, consist ing of C. A. Brown, John Ouderkirk, Fred erick Leslie, John F. Scott, L. L. McCand less, B. L. Warson and Luther Wilcox (no relation to the rebel, but the Government interpreter), with a native guide named Welau, were dispatched about 4 o'clock 3'esterday afternoon to the place men tioned. The officers went out in hacks to a point distant about half a mile from the house in which Wilcox was said to be hiding, and which is located at the extreme end of a spit running out to sea, where fishermen are wont to rendezvous. The vehicles containing the officers were driven behind a cluster of houses in order to pre vent their mission being known, and the possibility of Wilcox and his party making their escape by boat, which could have been easily accomplished before they arrived at the house. It was learned some time previous that a hack driven by a native would repair to the house of the concealed rebels, presumably to be used by Wilcox in escaping, or to be taken to some other place of concealment. There fore, by keeping track of the hack, the officers could the sooner locate their man. To reach the house where "Wilcox was necessitated a drive through water several feet deep for a distance something like half a mile. The officers from their place of concealment noted the arrival of the hack at the house. Shortly after its arrival a man was seen to come out and walk leis urely toward the vehicle, followed almost immediately by two others, who proceeded at a slow rate, seemingly supporting each other. All of them entered the hack and the return journey to the shore slowly be gan. The officers came out of their place of concealment and demanded the sur render of the party. Quite a parley en sued, during which Wilcox spoke some what haughtily and asked the meaning of detention. He was more than indignant over his arrest, and said he wanted to see Mr. Smith, the Attorney-General. He was informed that Mr. Smith wanted to see him, too, and had sent the officers out to bring him. Luther Wilcox (no relation to the rebel leader), said to Robert Wilcox that it was a good thing for him they were there to "Awarded Highest Honors— World's Fair.** •PR; CREAM MOST PERFECT MADE.
