Cross-exanviied Warren and I were talking to Lot Lane at the same time; Wilcox called me away to go to Bertelmanu's caunot tell whether accused waa there or not did not see anyone leave on horseback when I left, went straight to Bertelmann's house, whtre I remained until day- break; the other meu who were with Lot Lane were standing in the dark, aud I could not recognize them Lot came right up to us; could uot help but recognize him the report to Lot Lane was given in ordinary tone. Cbarlea Kuow John Lane, the accused saw him at his home on Saturday night, January 5th went to Kaae'8 bouse, where John Lane lives, for tbe purpose of getting ready to fight, Jim Lane, native boy aud my- self started out to Kaalawai together. Cross John LanewalkeJ into dinlnir room and then went out again; walked in and out about twice; that i8 all 1 know about him. Dick Am a hack-driver; John Lane baa ridden in my hack; laat drove him on the night of January 6tb. found him at the house of Abra- ham Fernandez; told rue to drive ia on King street; when we reached the Kme street bridge Jerry Simont-on cama up and asked Lane where he was going; Lane told uim he was on his way borne; Lane told me to drive out toward the residence of J. A. Cum- mins; atked him where he wasgoiug; told me to drive him to Bertelmauu'c; told him there was a fight out there, said not to mind that asked me to go iu and help natives fight said bis pur- pose was to figbt and that two or three nights previous he had helped to land arms; we were stopped near Sans Souci and Lane was arrested. My ftand is at corner of Bethel aud King streets; Bimouson stopped us and Lane where he was going; Lane answered he was going home; Simonson said allright; this was at the King i-treet bridge: told Lane there was shooting going on at Waikiki; be asked me to goiuaud help bim; told me he was eoingoutto help fight; told me that two or three days before he had gone out to land arms; the book which you ask me about and which I have bere in my pocket is a little memorandum book; did not make ft memorandum at EJC time cf wbat be told me; put down on last Saturday what I recol- lected of tbe ride with Lane; had a talk with Judge-Advocate Robertson on last Saturday night and made a memorandum of what took place tbe Sunday night of the fight; wrote it down in my book because I wanted to be prepared for the witness-stand; wanted to be sure of what I toH Rob- ertson; Lane spoke to me in Hawai- ian; told me to goto Bertelmann'H; told him tbey were fightingout there; told me to go on for there was work to be done; acked me to RO out aud help him; notblug was said about tbe dis- position of my hack; have never been arrested; wben I returned that night told Kaae that John had been ar- rested; after my return to town heard of the shooting of Carter some of the backraen at my stand reported that a flght was going on at Waikiki, and that is how I knew of it. W. O, Smith was tbe last witness for the prosecution, but was unable to be present on account of business at Court. Tbe Judge-Advocate ai-ked that he be allowed to testify later. Granted by the defense. The defense started with John Baker on the stand. John Was uot a leader under Nowleiu did not furnish Now- leiti any list of names of who I would join in the figbt; furnished Nowleiu with list of men who had not taken the oath of allegiance. I Cross examined out people who had not taken the oath by going and asking them; Xowlein spoke to me about making up the list some four months ago. There were about four- teen or fifteen names, which were wntten on white paper; gave list to Charlie Clark. William Gave Nowlein a list of names of natives about ten days before tbe beginning of tbe revo- tiou; nave bim two or three lists; there wt-re about a hundred names on one list, told tbe men to join the "Aloha Atria" league tor the over throw of ihe Government; there were over two hundred names in all; Pu- kila and John Mahuka went with me at times to collect names; Pukiia had a list; tie had about cixty eight men; hin lift t" 6am Nowlein. John MiihuK i a liat of names which I gave tu Sam Nowleiu. gave him li-t two or three months before the oulbreiik; hit'i about twenty five nanies on myliM. asked natives to join tru "Al.'ha .-iina' league; only gave Now em hit.

William Laue at Bartel manu's ou Tburbday uigbt; we were in the canoe shed ou tbe following morning, saw Warreu about 6 o'clock lu the morning; John Lane was there when Waireu and Towusend arrived; left fur borne when 1 saw Warreu au-1 Tovmsend, Johu went away before I left; nothing was said about arms be- ing lauded when I was there; did not know of any arms; it was daylight and 1 could see plainly. Jim and I went out to Waikiki ou Thursday under Wilcox's command; he did not tell us why we were to go out; did not say anything to Johu on Satur- day about it. W. O. Smith for the Sunday evening January 6th was the first the Goverument knew of tbe re- bellion; John Lane did uot give any luformation to the Government so far as I know. Robert Wilcox at Bertel- mann's early Friday morning; was in the canoe shed; Townsend, Warren and I came together; did not see John Lane; would have Been him had he been there; did not see John after that. Cross-examined see John Thursday evening; wben I left Kaae's with Jim Lane, Willie Lane and Ha- kuole, I was going to Kakaako. Jobn Hakuole; no conversation about landing arms took place between him and me; know Warren; at daybreak I left on my brother's horse and came to town; never beard any conversation about arms. Attorney Neumann began bis speech but remembered that he had forgotten to question the defendant with regard to the statements of Johu I. The Court allowed him to place the witness on the stand again. Jobn Lane drove I out to Waikiki ou Sunday night; had no conversation with bim in regard to any fight or the landiug of arms; did nor ask him tojoin in any fight. Cross examined: When I left Kaae's house on Thursday night I went under the orders of Wilcox who told me to go to Bertelmann's and there wait; had no conversation with Wilcox in regard to an outbreak; do not remember any conversation with any one else in regard to the oat- break; did not know what I went to Waikiki for; Wilcox said he would tell me the purpose upon bis arrival; did not see Wilcox upon my arrival at Bertelmann'c; waited for him and slept on Bertelmann's veranda. Tbe question, "where were you going Sunday night when John I drove you out precipitated an argument between counsel for defense and tbe Judge-Advocate. The former claimed that the latter had no right to ask a question that he had not in- troduced in the direct examination. Tbe latter held that, his question was in the direct line of counsel's examin- ation aud was sustained by the court. Cross examination going to Bertelmann's on the Sunday night of the outbreak; told I that I was going out to Bertelmauu's, but had no conversation about the fight and the landing of arms; told Simon- son, when be met us at the King street bridge, that I was going home, knew at that time that I was going out to Bertelmann's. Mr. Neumann held that the testi- mony brought forth by the prosecu- tion was not sufficient to convict the defendant of the charge. He stated that there were hundreds of people in this city who had heard rumors of an uprising among the natives and that Jobn Lane knew no more that these. Tne testimony as given by John I, Hakuole and Warren was contradict ory and unreliable. No matter what suspicion might rest upon the accused he could not be convicted on the testi- mony brought forth. Judge Advocate Robertson thought that the only inference which could be drawn from the testimony presented was that John Lane was up to the neck in tbe revolution, and was only prevented by an accident from joining into the flght. bare denial of the defendant did not go to prove that Dick I and Hakuoie were lying wben they made their statements. He thought it peculiar that John Lane should be going out to Waikiki on the night of the landing of arms and on the night of the outbreak. Tne na ture and manner iu which the evi- dence was given, together with the circumstances pointed plainly to con viction. Court adjourned until tbis morning. Preston Harrison Departs William Preston Harrison of Chicago, tourist, newspaper writer and good fellow generally, left Ho- nolulu on the Warnmoo yesterday to continue Ins trip among the South Sea islands. Mr. Harrison will go to Fiji and from thence to Samoa, reaching Auckland the latter part 1 of April wherw he will be joined by i a traveling friend with whom he will continue his wanderings about ihe globe Mr. Harrison is ae ar- dent n supporter of annexation as ever MIH! tirmly believes that the continuation of the hopes of the R-pulilic are not far distant.

THE LKTTKK OK JOHN L. STEVUMM Strong ITrom An American Brought Out by the Death of Charles L.. Including Thoae at Word for The letters of sympathy received by the bereaved friends of the late Charles L. Carter have brought many bits of hope and encourage- ment to the Government of the Republic of Hawaii. The Honor- able John L. Stevens, in a letter of January 20ih, which must have among the last he penned, said I realize that words are but a feeble expression of the profound sorrow which all of your friends feel at this time in view of the sudden death of your beloved and promising son. You have the precious reflection that Charles Lunl Carter was a noble man, that he died in the sacred cause of civilizitiou and free government, as Warren died at Bunker Hill, as Ells- worth died at Alexandria. Immortal honor to his memory in Hawaii. Ere this reaches you, I have DO doubt that quiet and public security will have beeu fully established in your midst. The sympathy in the United States for the Hawaiian cause is in- creased by recent events. Your cause will not go backwards. You painfully realize, as I do, that in all important governmental crises, when essential human progress is made, sacrifices are made, often of the young and most promising. You know the great les- son, and I need not multiply words ou the philosophy of history and the scope and meaning of progressive civ- ilization. God, the Father, ruletb over all! A prominent officer of the United States navy writes: Words are too feeble to express my grief and indignation when the sad news reached us the uprising of royalists in Hawaii and the death of your son. I am filled with Indigna- tion at the outrageous policy that di- rectly encouraged the royalists to make the attempt to overturn the Government, the best Hawaii has ever known. The news has aroused a very strong feeling amongst our peo- ple against the present Administra- tion and in sympathy for Hawaii, which feeling has shown itself in reso- lutions and earnest addresses in the Senate, and strong editorials in lead- ing newspapers all over the country. The death of your son has brought the matter home to us as nothing else would have done, and I am sure his death has not been in vain, but will do much for the good of Hawaii. Still another naval officer says In the exciting days of November, 1893, your son, Mr, Carter, paid, "I am fully persuaded tliat lives must be offered up for the good of Hawaii. There are many of us who believe this and who are ready to flgnt for our country and the right, and if I am one whose life must be sacrificed, I am ready." It must be a comfort to you to have been the mother of such a son. His tame must go down in history as that of a patriot, a martyr, and a kin- dred spirit of the gallant Warren of Bunker Hill. Another friend writes We have read of tlie woeful tragedy in your home, with mnsternation and the deepest sorrow. The destruction of your dear son is a calamity in which every home HI the world where honor and purity am centered is keen- ly interested. In HI great a loss, the Republic, though j.erliaps eventually a gainer, fflu.U sadly lament (he tte- menduous sacrifice and every family where the ideal son, husband and father supports the love and honor of the home suffers with you and yours. We mourn bitterly, because we are persuaded that your sacrifice was un- necessary. I know you would say that the laws of retribution will surely be measured out to the guilty by the execution of the laws of eternal justice. You know much of the Divine equity. Rev. D. Stuart Dodge, in a letter of January 29lh, says The death of the brave and gifted young Carter will nrt be forgotten in the annalso( independence in Hawaii. It must be a very direct sorrow to your own family circle. The re-ult never seemed in doubt here. The magnificent patrioti-rn and ability of your citizens appeared all the more conspicuous in the promptness and en- ercy with which they sprang to the defense of the Republic If the royal- ists (inpluiling oertsm parties at Washington, n tiad deliberately planned to irive exaltation to your HIM!
