NO EXECUTIONS. Death Sentences for Hawaiian Traitors Not Yet Carried Out. Ex-Queen Liliuokalnni on Trial—Claims Ignorance of Plot—May Be Found Guilty. ' :sco, Feb. l.'.— The steamer Mariposa arrived from Sidney and Auckland via, Apia and Honolulu Friday morning, bringing tDe Jollowing lla\vaiian advices: i:x-yti<!«n Vlacecl on Trial. HONOLULU, Fob. S. '— Liliiiokalani Domini*, ex-queen of Hawaii, was ar- riiigncd on the Stli instant on a chariro of misprision of treason. Tho original charge was treason. She is represented by Paul Neumann. The lirst day was frittered au-ay by the argument of counsel, who objected to the court at every turn. His objections were overruled in every instance. After the charge was read the matter went over for a day. The case was culled again day before yesterday and the deposed monarch, re fused to plead, so a plea of not guilty was entered. The work ol! examining witnesses w:is gone through with and enough evidence secured to prove to -the impartial observer that she was aware a rebellion was to be started. Tho 7nost damaging evidence that will be brought against her will be her personal diary, which was found iu her residence after her arrest. Whether this is introduced and made public at her trial depends very much upon the course pursued by her counsel in defending her case. Clevftland'ii ProMont. The ex-queen recorded her thoughts, desires and impressions very freely in her diary. Among the entries made during this summer was one stating: "J. 0, Carter called to-day atid delivered President Cleveland's present to me.' 1 What this present was is not stated. The .lix-(Juoon'a .Sciitcment. While the trial of the ex-queen was in progress yesterday she was placed on the stand in her own behalf. Tho, district examination was confined to the alleged conversation between her and Charles Clark, who testified that he .informed her of the proposed rebellion. She denied that any such conversation took place. After her examination was concluded a statement written by her was filed. It commences with the time she was deposed and goes on to say: "The movement undertaken by the Ha \vaiianH hist month WHS coain.encod without my knowledge, sanction, consent o;-assistance.

The military court will probably bring in a verdict of guilty in the case oi the ex-queen, notwithstanding her denial. Sentence wil] be passed, but it is not believed she will be imprisoned, but will be allowed freedom on her own recognizance. The next case to be tried will bo that of Jonah Kanioaaoic. He was a prince under the monarchy ancTi was to be king in case the rebellion was successful. The quecu was to abdicate in his favor in order to keep Princess Kaiu- laui from the throne. This fact is well known by all English residents. Willis Objected to Importation. The Yi'arrimoo's departxire for Victoria was delayed for two hours in order to give JoTmstone, Mueller and Cranston, '.he banished men, opportunity to sec thoir respecti'-e consuls. Johnstone talked to British Commissioner llarres, after which, he stated he was satisfied to go. Cranston saw Minister Willis, .who protested to the government, claJmiug it had no right to send-men out of the country without first' giving them a trial. The German consul also objected in the case of Mueller. After the steamer sailed Minister Willis boarded the Philadelphia and had a T ' conference with. Admiral, Beardslee. . 3The movements of Willis were watched anxiously and it is .said the government fears he will-call the forces of-the ,s aid in case the irov- ernmenC decides to hang 'WUJard Seward, one of the men condemned by j the military court. j IVurned for AttjitklDjj ^Vil!I(i. j The Advertiser recently published an editorial about the American minister's course which brought forth the following: nDKPABTMKSI Of FOHKIUN .^TAtUS. HONOLULU. H. L, February -i. if03.—Dear Sir: I have noticed in this morning's is.suo ot the Pacillc Commercial Advertiser aa editorial commenting unfavorably upon the action of the American minister in relation to the deportation of Mr. Cranston. I desire to call your attention, in this connection, to the fact of our friendly relations to tho government of the United States, and that, therefore, .it is aeniraltle that due caution be exercised in commenting upon the oUldal conduct of tts representative here, to retrain NOT SATISFIED. from harsh ami unfriendly criticism, anil especially so when reference is made to acts of the president of that country.

It is understood that the foregoing was sent to forestall any objection that Minister Willis might make. Wurlt of Milltiiry Court. I Since the last advices the military I court has tried twenty-one native reb- j els. and V. V. Ashford, John Cummins, John Wise and Capt. Davies. Cummins and Davis both pleaded guilty to the charge of treason. Tho latter was master of the steamer Wai- manrilo, the vessel that landed the arms for the rebels. The government has liberated John S. Walker, Thomas Kawlins and Henry Swinton on their own recognizance. The men aro charged with conspiracy. It is understood that a number of prisoners, who have business interests, will be liberated after tho departure of the Mariposa. A well-defined rumor says Admiral lieardsJee has instructions to raise tho flag of the United States over Pearl harbor. It is indicated thntthe United States government will take possession nf the harbor under guaranteed treaty rights and virtually declare a protectorate over thi! islands. Admiral Uennislee is said to he vested with tho authority necessary to carry out the programme. C. C. Moreno, who Lakes a lively interest in Hawaiian nffnirs, recently wrote to Robert Wileox, ono of the condemned rebel leaders, saying he had been assured by Senator I-Jawley and other prominent .-men that President Cleveland and Minister Willis were both ready to reeog- 'nixe the rebels if they were successful.

Tho Australia,- leaving February -3, will take several other exiles, including Peterson anil Creighton, ex-cabinet ollicer*, and Wurdenbnrg, ex-Postmaster General V. V. Ashford and John F.

The government just prior to the sailing of the Mariposa decided to banish Carl \Vidcma.iin, convicted of treason, lie is a'son of Judge Widcmann, •one of the ex-quncn's commissioners to Washington. Annexation is t:K Active. A number of prominent natives and half-castes are making arrangements to form political clubs all over the island. Annexation is the aim of the organization.

Tho republicans objected to the rc- ne:U of the duty because they did not look upon the imposition of the duty us a violation of the treaty rights of German}-, and for the further reason that it would be but a change in a general section of a tariff act to which they wore opposed, find which could only be corrected by the elimination of the whole section. They therefore permitted tho democrats to order a favorable report on the bill as it L-ame from tho house. The action of the committee in reporting the bill was had without any formal vote, but there was an informal expression of views of the members of the committee.

WASHINGTON, Feb. in.—In the senate Friday Senator Pork-ins (rep., Cal.) reported back from the committee ou education and labor the senate bill for the appointment of a. non-partisan committee to collect information and to consider and recommend legislation to meet the problems presented by labor, agriculture and esipital; aud it was placed on the calendar. Senator Harris (dem.. Tenn.) from the finance committee reported back withoutaraendmcnt the house, bill to remove tho differential duty on sugar; and it was placed On the calendar with a resolution offered by Senator Aldrich (rep., It. 1.) to recommit the bill with iiis'.-ructions to report it back with amendments.

C.) chairman of the committee on interstate commerce called up a resolution heretofore offered by him to make the "pooling bill" the unfinished business aftfr the post office and agricultural appropriation bills.. He called it up not for action, but in order to inakc some remarks -upon it. At the conclusion of Senator Butler's statement the resolution went over without action. The senate then, resumed consideration of the post ofJee appropriation bill, the pending question being on the amendment offered Thursday by Senator lilackburn (dem., Ky.) to reduce the appropriation for the fast mail from Springfield, Mass., to Atlanta and New Orleans JO per cent.

The agricultural bill was then taken up. The. first item that led to discussion was an amendment to change existing* law as to the inspection of live cattle, hogs, etc., aud their carcasses and products for exportation. Senator i'latt (rep., Conn.) said he did not propose to engage in the repeal of any legislation or in the amendment o* any act now existing, at tlie dictation of a forei^nO government. "If Germany wants to retaliate it is a game that two can play. And the way to convince her that her proposed retaliation is properly understood in this country is to make use of the power which we now have, for retaliation on Germany. I have little respect for the legislation which attempts to conciliate Germany bv imiking our laws satisfactory to Germany."' House Proceedings.
