haired missionaries fail into the basket
with th same leer of barbarous con

watched live pigs roast on the hot
crust of Ktlanea s crater, when sh
made her pagan sacrifice, not many
years ago, to the fabled gjddess of the
burning lake.
Knowing th "x-queen a they did,
the annexation party was not surprised
at br demand tor blool, but the royal
ists were thrown into a state of politi
cal excitement and despair. They knew
the natnre of tbeir mistress well
enough, but they thought that she
bad th cunning to dissamhle un
til she had been restored to
power. Their intelligence told thrn
that the United States would never
seat her oa the Hawaiian tbron
after snch a display of blo.dthistina
as she had made. On all sides the word
was passed tbat Lillnokolani had
ceased to be a factor in the political
equation. The thought common among
the monarchist leaders was-what next.
Naturally Guardian Davie had a sug
gestion to make. It wis Lainlani. In
a letter to a royalist journal h ex
pressed abhorrence on the conduct of
the ex-qneen, and went so far as tossy
that previous acts of bers, of mnch less
savag purport, had absolved her fol

gan a Kaiulani propaganda, and, al
though the nam of the princess bas not
hitherto been one to cot.jure with In
tha Hawaiin Islands h has managed to
give ber canse a standing which it bad
never beforo been able to obtain. It
may now he said that Hawaii has a
Kaiulani party, small, but capable of
growing larger. Davies Is a 'man of
wealth and culture, but of ultra-British
monarchist principles. For five years
and he bus had charge of the princess as
her guardian, and hehas moulded her
youthful mind with skillful touch nn
til she is now, in all but blood am)
color, an English gentlewoman. To
put bor on the throne, to m.rry hsr to
his son, to govern her through her
husband and through the Scotchman
(Cleghorn), who calls himself her
father, and to aecure for his further
reward tb post of Hawaiian minister
to the court of St James', are the lond
ambitions for which Davies works
early and late.
Kaiulani will have behind her the
strength and prestige of Davies' in Ali
enee and wealth ; th help of a part of
the younger native element iu the
( Royalist party; the diplomatic cun
ning of British ministef resident, ami
the sympathy of the Koglish-Hawaii -ans
generally. Still, this will avail
her nothing, unless the Royal
ists revolt and succeed in an
effort to overthrow tbe existing
government. I donbt if their most
sanguine supporters think this ran be
done in th ordinary course of events.
Their hope undoubtedly is that the an
nexation party will break up into con
tending factions, and that, taking ad
vantage of the confusion which may
follow, the Monarchists will gain their

and west armories.
Hy tbe time the department got fairly
to work onhalf the long building
connecting tb two armories was ablaze
from base to attic, and tne efforts of
the firemen were then directed to sav
iug tbe east armory. Lines of hose
were soon ruu up into the third and
fourth floors of the east armory, and
the progress of the flames was headed
off in that directiou.
The fir, In the meantime, was slow
ly working its way toward the West
armory, a building 500 feet long and
three stories high. It hud already eaten
through a brick tire wall a foot thick
and was working its way through the
attic over the heads of the firemen,
who wero bravely trying to stop its
progress on the fljor below. For some
reason tli stairs leading to the attic
could not be found an 1 the flames
made rapid progress nuiotig tbe season

west armory aud in through an iron
door the tiremu faced the smoke aud

As soon as the fire burned through
th roof the smoke was drawn awav
from them and the tin-men then fol

Thirty years ago this month, on Feb.
5, Colt's factory was destroyed by lire.
At that time the east armory was to
tally destroyed. Th cause of th fire
then was thought to be of rebel origin.

it is believed they are, the shops will
be running iu a week.
