[I Liliuokalani, by the grace of God and under the constitution of the Hawaiian Kingdom, Queen, do hereby solemnly protest against any and all acts done against myself and the constitutional Government of the Hawaiian Kingdom by certain persons claiming to have established a provisional government of and for this Kingdom.

That I yield to the superior force of the United States of America, whose minister plenipotentiary, His Excellency John L. Stevens, has caused United States troops to be landed at Honolulu and declared that he would support the said provisional government.

Now, to avoid any collision of armed forces and perhaps the loss of life, I do, under this protest, and impelled by said force, yield my authority until such time as the Government of the United States shall, upon the facts being presented to it, undo the actions of its representatives and reinstate me in the authority which I claim as the constitutional sovereign of the Hawaiian Islands.

Mild hula ku’i and California Midwinter International Exposition, 1894.

DEPARTING FRIENDS.

The S. S. Australia Carries the Hawaiian Exhibit.

The departure of the S. S. Australia for the Coast was delayed until nearly 1 o’clock on account of the late arrival at the Oceanic wharf of articles to be exhibited at the Midwinter Fair in San Francisco, which has already opened. Among the numerous exhibits to be seen on the steamer were boxes of large and small coffee plants, boxes of large and small tea trees, brought from Hamakua, two wooden tanks containing different varieties of fish, including eels, a small shark, squid and crabs. The last two species were in one tank, and it is believed there will be a circus started between them when the aquarium is shaken up. There were two monster bullocks in stalls lashed near the stern. Kapahee, the famous surf rider, with his board, his wife and son, three hula girls and four other natives comprise part of the Hawaiian exhibit. Kapahee will give exhibitions in surf riding near the Cliff House, and if the water is clear he will dive and kill fish with a spear he has taken with him. He will also ride the bullocks. The girls under the management of D. Kaahanui will dance a mild hula-kui, while the others will assist about the grounds. Mr. L. A. Thurston superintends the exhibit.

Mrs. J. K. Ailau will make a first-class exhibition of Hawaiian curios at the fair in connection with the Hawaiian exhibit. She has taken with her four young ladies to act as saleswomen.

Messrs. Samuel Parker and A. P. Peterson were passengers on the Australia for the Coast on business bent.

Mr. W. P. Boyd, U. S. Vice-Consul-General, and wife were also passengers. They have gone to spend their honeymoon in the States. Both were gaily bedecked with leis and evergreens.

Miss Kate Cornwell, H. A. Widemann, Jr., F. M. Hatch and L. A. Thurston also left.

Mrs. and Miss Gerber, with their friend Miss A. Cahill, who lately returned from the Volcano, were among the departing throng. Mrs. Gerber and daughter left for home after a short and pleasant vacation on the islands.

Nearly all the passengers were covered with Hawaii’s tropical adieu, viz., wreaths and flowers. The P. G. band played previous and up to the departing of the steamer, and the scene on the wharf was one of bustle and excitement.

Where did all of these treasures from the Kingdom go? 1922.

THERE ARE MANY OLD THINGS PLACED ON DISPLAY.

There are many old things from the monarchial period saved as memorabilia on display in the window of the business of Hawaiian News Co., which is headed by John H. Soper, the first General of the Hawaiian National Guards [Pualikoa Kiai Lahui Hawaii]; and amongst the old things is the sword of King Kalakaua, memorabilia from the P. G. [Provisional Government; aupuni kuikawa], and many various documents.

There also is a ticket signed by G. E. Smithies of the treasury office, for the receipt of the crown and sword of Kalakaua and many other items within Iolani Palace at the time, and now the Executive Building [Hale Mana Hooko].

Near the sword is a written document, explaining that it was presented to Colonel Soper (that being Soper’s rank at the time) from James W. Robertson, the first chamberlain of the King, by order of Sanford B. Dole, and it was written on the 18th of January, 1893, the day after Queen Liliuokalani was driven from the throne.

There are also proclamations signed by President Dole and the ministers of the P. G. giving authority to John H. Soper, the one who was appointed as marshal of the republic of Hawaii, to proclaim martial law. There are also several documents sent to Marshal Soper from President Dole ordering Soper to circulate the proclamations should the troops of the Provisional Government be waged war upon.

There is also an order giving authority to Marshal Soper to arrest some men here in Honolulu, should they defy the government. In the list of names of those people are: Charles J. McCarthy, former mayor of Hawaii; also C. B. Wilson, marshal of the kingdom under Queen Liliuokalani; Samuel Parker and some other former ministers; along with other important people of the time amongst the Hawaiians.

Also in the window is a portrait painted of President Dole and also of General Soper in full dress, in the role of General of the Republic of Hawaii; and so too with other important people during the time of the overthrow of 1893.

All of the appointment documents of General Soper as a marshal [ilamuku] for the kingdom signed by King Kalakaua from 1884 to 1886, and also the appointment as marshal by President Dole for the republic of Hawaii, and the appointments as colonel and brigadier general for the National Guards, can all be seen in the window.

[Speaking of treasures and swords and auctions… Why is this sword up for auction?]
