On the search for the Japanese consul, F. Schmibu, 1895 / 2014.

We see in “Hawaii’s Story,” some of those present at the Queen’s trial were:

“The diplomatic corps, Mr. Albert F. Willis, minister of the United States, A. G. S. Hawes, British commissioner, Monsieur De Verlet, French commissioner, Senior Canavarro, Portuguese commissioner, and Mr. F. Schmibu, the Japanese consul…”

[According to Thrum’s Hawaiian Annual of 1895, Japan’s diplomatic representative was “F. Schimiczu, Eleve-Consul.”

In the Hawaii newspapers of the day, both English and Hawaiian-Language, there are also references to Consul-General Shimizu (Kanikela Kenerala Shimizu). But i still have yet to find any specific information on this man.

The four others are: Albert S. Willis, Albert G. S. Hawes, Henri L. Verleye, and Antonio de Souza Canavarro.]
