Queen Liliuokalani is arrested: her crime—having aloha for her lahui, 1895.

Mai Wakinekona a Iolani Hale.

Ia’u e nanea ana ma Wakinekona,
Pa-e ana ka leo nahenahe,
Auhea wale ana oe e Kalani,
Ei ae na hauna o ke Aupuni,
Nana e hanu mai pau i ka ikea,
Na mea nui, na mea liilii,
O ka hana ia a Waipa,
Kapena makai o ka Pi Gi,
Eia ko hewa la e Kalani,
No kou aloha i ka lahui,
Na ke kaa pio Hope Ilamuku,
I hii ia Kalani i Halealii,
Hookahi puana kou puuwai,
No ka poe i aloha i ka aina.

Kaumana wale kuu ike’na,
Na paia hanohano o Iolani Hale,
Ea mai Laeahi ma ka hikina,
Kela kuahiwi alo i ke kai,
Kahi a na oiwi o kuu aina,
I imi ai i ka pono o ka lanakila,
Anoano ke aloha ka hiki’na mai,
No kuu lahui i ke ehuehu,
E na Mana Lani e aloha mai,
Hookuu mai i ka poe pilikia,
Hookahi puana kou puuwai,
No ka poe i aloha i ka aina.

(Makaainana, 4/1/1895, p. 1)

    “On the sixteenth day of January, 1895, Deputy Marshal Arthur Brown and Captain Robert Waipa Parker were seen coming up the walk which leads from Beretania Street to my residence. Mrs. Wilson told me that they were approaching. I directed her to show them into the parlor, where I soon joined them. Mr. Brown informed me that he had come to serve a warrant for my arrest; he would not permit me to take the paper which he held, nor to examine its contents.

    “It was evident they expected me to accompany them; so I made preparations to comply, supposing that I was to be taken at once to the station-house to undergo some kind of trial. I was informed that I could bring Mrs. Clark with me if I wished, so she went for my hand-bag; and followed by her, I entered the carriage of the deputy marshal, and was driven through the crowd that by this time had accumulated at the gates of my residence at Washington Place. As I turned the corner of the block on which is built the Central Congregational church, I noticed the approach from another direction of Chief Justice Albert F. Judd; he was on the sidewalk, and was going toward my house, which he entered. In the mean time the marshal’s carriage continued on its way, and we arrived at the gates of Iolani Palace, the residence of the Hawaiian sovereigns…”
