HI 96101 Lili'uokalani: Observances begin today FROM PAGE ONE Church of Christ will apologize to Hawaiians and begin to repent for Protestant collusion in the events of 1893. On Monday, chanters will signal the end of a painful century with the call for a new beginning. One hundred years ago this week, Queen Lili'uokalani was hoping to revive the political power of the monarchy and her Hawaiian subjects with a new constitution. Her attempt to do that sparked rebellion by men of foreign birth and parentage who sought to oust her and put Hawaii under American rule. Convinced that U.S. Marines were wrongfully deployed in support of the businessmen, Lili'uokalani chose to step aside under protest, while urging the United States to undo the work of U.S. officials who backed the overthrow. Admired for her strength of character and talents as a composer and lyricist, the queen died in November 1917, nearly 20 years after Hawaii was annexed as a U.S. territory. Lili'uokalani's leadership, sacrifice and dedication are remembered in the name of the centennial observance - 'Oni-pa'a, which means "steadfast" and was held by the queen as her personal motto. Over three days, key events of the final days of Lili'uokalani's reign will be brought to life in a five-act drama. Its 19 scenes will be staged at Iolani Palace and other places where the queen and her enemies walked a century ago. The costumed drama will begin Friday morning at Iolani Palace. Today's opening ceremony at the queen's statue, between the palace and the state Capitol, will begin with a chant and music from the Royal Hawaiian Band. The band will play the Queen's Prayer while Kawaia-hao Church pastor William Kaina blesses the statue. State Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustee Kamaki Kanahele will offer a 100-year-old chant last used when his great-grandmother made a presentation to Lili'uokalani. Leo Anderson Akana, the actress who will portray Lili'uo kalani in this week's historical drama, will sing "Kaulana Na Pua" (Famous Are the Flowers). Lil-1 ' u o k a 1 a n i wrote the bitter, emotion-charged song 100 years ago to express her opposition to Hawaii's annexation to the United States. wiim: (Steadfast) ; v CENTENNIAL OBSERVANCE 1893 1993 Jan. 13, 1893 At 3 p.m., the secretary of the Legislature informed lawmakers that Queen Lili'uokalani had named a new cabinet consisting of Samuel Parker as foreign affairs minister, William Cornwell, finance minister, John Colbum, interior minister, and Arthur Peterson, attorney general. The appointments signaled the Queen's intention to seek political changes strenghtening the powers of the monarchy and native Hawaiians. Jan. 13, 1993 Centennial events get under way today with a 9 a.m. service at Mauna Ala, the Royal Mausoleum, and a noon opening ceremony at the Queen Lili'uokalani Statue between Iolani Palace and the state Capitol. Among other events today; 3 p.m.: 100-hour vigil begins, Queen Lili'uokalani Statue. 6:45 p.m.: Lighting of 100 torches, Iolani Palace. ' ; - 4 f ; i Akana Earlier in the day, members of the 'Onipa'a Centennial Committee will gather in a private ceremony at Mauna Ala, the Royal Mausoleum, to focus their thoughts and gather spiritual strength from Lili'uokalani. The committee, headed by state Sen. Eloise Tungpalan, has been working for months to arrange a centennial observance that is solemn and dignified, yet lively and relevant enough to involve as many Hawaiians as possible. More than 20 events have been organized by a variety of organizations representing a wide spectrum of political and cultural approaches to Hawaiian issues. Centennial events also are Filanned on the Neighbor Is-ands by another organizing committee made up of numerous Hawaiian organizations. Hawaii tourism officials and hotel managers are spreading the word that the centennial is a . solemn observance, to be looked upon with respect, and not as a tourist attraction.

MONDAY, JAN. 18 "A New Beginning," with chanters, Iolani Palace Iraq: US. military readies retaliatory strike in, FROM PAGE ONE peatcd cross-border raids into territory ceded to Kuwait, attacks on United Nations vehicles and personnel in Iraqi Kurdistan and an attempt by Baghdad to ban flights carrying U.N. weapons inspectors. Iraqi salvagers crossed into Kuwait for a fourth consecutive day today, a move that increases the likelihood of an allied retaliation. Abdel Latif Kabbaj, spokesman fpr U.N. observers in the demilitarized zone along the Iraq-Kuwait border, said the Iraqis, unarmed and in civilian clothes, "have come back." He did not have a figure on how many workers there were, but teams of about 150 have been crossing the border since Sunday, dismantling a former Iraqi naval base on disputed territory. U.S. Army Gen. John Shalikashvili, the top commander of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, said Saddam's missiles in northern Iraq dormant for nine months have been turned on "within the last few days." The missiles, which threaten allied war-planes designed to ensure that Saddam does not repress his rebellious Kurdish population, were turned on at about the same time that allied threats forced Saddam to move similar weapons in the southern no-fly zone. While acknowledging that the missile redeployment does not violate any ceasefire accord, he described it as "part of a continuing pattern of going to the brink on the part of Saddam Hussein" and said military action is "the only thing" that compels compliance by the Iraqi leader. Foreign policy experts both inside and outside the government believe Saddam's mission could be twofold aggravating the outgoing U.S. president who cost him Kuwait and testing the resolve of the incoming Clinton foreign policy team. "Saddam is playing his game ... to see how far he can push in the wind-down days of this administration," said Bernard Reich, an expert on Middle East politics at George Washington University in Washington. "I don't think he has the foggiest notion of how Clinton and (Defense Secretary-designate Lcs) Aspin would respond. So he'll test. He'll probe." But this past week, Clinton, a campaign critic of Bush's Iraq policy, has been steadfast in his support tor Bush's policy. "We will not tolerate any violation of the resolutions," Clinton spokesman George Stephanopoulos said from Little1 Rock, Ark. "It would be unwise of him (Saddam) to underestimate President-elect Clinton's resolve to stand with President,, Bush in that policy." j; Aboard the USS Kitty Hawk in thf Persian Gulf, whose 75 warplancs reprev sent a large fraction of the air power im mediately available to the allies, wire! service and television reporters who had! been filing frequent stories in recent days; went silent late Monday and could not bei reached by satellite telephone yesterdayf!
