The Military Commission were treated to a review of the princi- pal eventa connected with the suc- cessful revolution of 1893, when monarchical government was ob- literated forever in the Hawaiian Islands, through the statement filed and read on behalf of Liliuo- kalani Dominis, now undergoing trial for conspiring to overthrow the present republican form of Government. Following is the statement in full: In the year 1893, on the 15th day of January, at the request of a large majority of the Hawaiian people, and by and with the advice and consent of my cabinet, I pro- posed to make certain changes in the Constitution of the Hawaiian Kingdom, which were suggested to me as being for the advantage and benefit of the Kingdom and subjects and residents thereof. These pro- posed changes did not deprive for- eigners of any rights or privileges en- joyed by them under the Constitution of 1887, promulgated by King Kala- kaua, and his Cabinet, without the consent of the people or ratified by their votes. My Ministers at the last moment changed their views and requested me to defer all action in connection with the Constitution, and I yielded to their advice as bound to do by the ex- isting Constitution and laws. A minority of the foreign popula- tion made my action the pretext for overthrowing the Monarchy, and, aided by the United States naval forces and representative established a new government. I owed no allegiance to the Provls- ional Government so established, nor to any power or to any one save the will of my people and the welfare of my country. The wishes of my people were not consulted as to this change of govern- ment, and only those who were in practical rebellion against the Con- stitutional Government were allowed to vote upon the question whether the Monarchy should exist or not. To prevent the shedding of the blood of my people, natives and foreigners alike, I opposed armed interfer- ence and quietly yielded to the armed forces brought against my throne, and submitted to the arbitra- ment of the Government of the United States the decision of my rights and those of the Hawaiian people. Since then, as is well known to all, 1 have pursued the path of peace and diplo- motic discussion, and not that of in- ternal strife. The United States having first inter- fered in the interest of those founding the Government of 1893 upon the basis of revolution, concluded to leave to the Hawaiian people the selection of their own form of Government This selection was anticipated and prevented by the Provisional Govern- ment, who, being possessed of the military and police power of the King- dom, so cramped the electoral privi- leges that no free expression of their will was permitted to the people who were opposed to them. By my command and advice the na- tive people and those in sympathy with them were restrained from rising against the Government in power. The movement undertaken by the Hawaiians last month was absolutely commenced without my knowledge, sanction, consent or assistance, direct- ly or indirectly, and this fact is in truth well known to those who took part in it. I received no information from any one in regard to arms which were or which were to be procured, nor of any men who were induced, or to be in- duced, to join in any such uprising. I do not know why this information should have been withheld from me, unless it was with a view to my personal safety or as a precaution- ary measure. It would not have re- ceived my sanction and I can assure the gentlemen of this Commission that, had I known of any such inten- tion, I would have dissuaded the ?romotere from such a venture. But will add that had I known, tneir secrets would have been mine violately preserved. That I intended to change my Cab- inet and to appoint certain officers of the kingdom, in the event of my res- toration, I will admit; but that 1, or any one known to me, had, in part or in whole, established a new govern- ment is not true. Before the Jlth of January, 1895, the day upon which I formally abdicated, and called upon my people to recognize the Republic of Hawaii as the only lawful Govern- ment of these Islands, and to support that Government, I claim that I nail the right to select a Cabinet in antici- pation of a possibility, and history of other governments, support this right. I was not intimidated in to abdicat- ing, but followed the counsel of able and generous friends and well-wishers un act will who advised me that would restore peace and good among my people; vitalize the pro- gress and prosperity of the Islands and induce the actual Government to deal leniently, mercifully aud chari- tably, impassionately with those who resorted to arms for the purpose of displacing a government iu the form- ation of which they had DO voice or control; and which they themBelirea had seen established by force or arms. I acted of my own free will, and wish the world to know that I have asked no immunity of favor myself nor pleaded my abdication as a pe- tition for mercy. My actions were dictated by the sole aim of doing good to my beloved country, and of allevi- ating the positions and pains of those who unhappily and unwisely resorted to arms to regain an independence, which they thought had been unjustly wrested from them. As you deal with them, so I pray that the Almighty God may deal with you in your hours Of trial. To my regret much has been said about the danger which threatened foreign women aud children, and about the bloodthirstiness of the Ha- waiians and the outrages which would have been perpetrated by them if they had succeeded in their attempt to overthrow the Republic Government. They, who know the Hawaiian tem- per and disposition, understand jthat there was no foundation for any such fears. The behavior of the rebels to those foreigners whom they captured and held shows that there was no ma- lignancy in the hearts of the iams at all. It would have been sad indeed if the doctrine of the Christian Missionary Fathers, taught to my people by them and those who suc- ceeded them, should have fallen like the seed in the parable upon barren ground. I must deny your right to try me in the manner and by the Court which you have called together for this pur- pose. In your actions you violate your own Constitution and laws, which are now the Constitution and laws of the land. There may be in your consciences a warrant for your action, in what you may deem a necessity of the times, but you cannot fina any such war- rant for any such action in any settled, civilized or Christian land. All who uphold you in this unlawful proceeding may .scorn and despise my word, but the offense of breaking and setting aside for a specific purpose the laws of your own nation and disregarding all justice and fairness may be to them and to you the source of an unhappy aud much to be regretted legacy. I would ask you to consider that your Government is on trial before the whole civilized world, and that iu ac- cordance with your actions and decis- ions will you yourselves be judged. The happiness and prosperity of Ha- waii are henceforth in your hands alone as its rulers. You are com- mencing a new era in its history. May the Divine Providence grant you the wisdom to lead the nation Into the paths of forbearance, forgiveness and peace, and to create and consolidate a united people ever anxious to advance in the way of civilization outlined by the American fathers of liberty and religion. In concluding my statement I thank you for the courtesy you have shown to me, not as your former queen, but as an humble citizen of this land and as a woman. I assure you, who be- lieve you are faithfully fulfilling a public duty, that I shall never harbor any resentment or cherish any ill feel- Ing towards you whatever may be your decision. VERY MUCH ALIVE. Lilikoi Brought To Light By Gapt. Parker's Vigilance. Jno. L. Lilikoi, the rebel lieuten- ant who was reported killed during an engagement with the Govern- ment troops, was brought to the police station last night by Capt. Parker. With him were two na- tivee, Kema Kakipi and Hoopii Kaliloa. Capt. Parker got a clew that these men were in hiding in the city, and last night located them at a house near the Queen hotel on Nuuanu street. Arriving at the house a native woman waa the only occupant. She stoutly affirmed her ignorance of the whereabouts of the men, but finally brought them from a banana field in rear of the house. The in- surgents have been hiding in the city for some time. Lilikoi says he is tired of evading the police and will "tell the truth." Dietlugtdfihed Visitors. President Dole, Minister King and Adjutant General Soper visited Admiral Beardslee yesterday after- noon at 2 o'clock, remaining aboard fifteen minutes. A salute of twenty- one guns was fired both on the ar- rival and departure of the party. The Adrenal's bary conveyed the party to and froin tfat- Philadelphia.

Telia of Her MoTeuueuta on the Day When the Rebellion Com- Family Prayers After Takiug a Ride ou Buiiday. The trial of Mrs. Dominis was prac- tically concluded yesterday afternoon, and all that remains to be done is to hear argument of counsel. Judge- Advocate Kinney and Paul Neumann will sum up the case this morning at 10 o'clock. The attendance yesterday was quite as large as on previous days. The moat interesting portion of the day's proceedings was the reading of a state- ment written by the ex-queen, which was afterwards placed on file as a por- tion of the records of the case. A number of witnesses were placet on the stand to prove that Charlei Clark's reputation for veracity wa; not good. Mrs. Dominis was placed on the stand also, but nothing of au im- portant nature was elicited. Professor C. J. Lyons was the firs witness. He stated that he was handed a bomb to examine. He was also given the piece of shell that was found on the ex-queen's table at Washington Place. He was of opinion that the bombs exhibited were all made in the same mould. Bert Prof. Lyons, he delivered a bomb to him on the 16th January; the bomb was broughi into the Marshal's office by Roberi Parker. Captain Robert saw some bombs in Washington Place; he found them underground; he founc some firearms also; this was on the 16th of January. Witness gave a list of the arms that were captured. Cross-examined: He gave the bombs to the Marshal; he was presen when Peterson was banded the oomb he could not identify the piece of bomb in court. E. L. Hitchcock a piece of bomb to Professor Lyons on Wed nesday night. It was the same as ex- hibited in court. The bomb and piece of shell were placed in evidence.
