Rebellion at Hawaii.
NUMBERS KILLED and WOUNDED. (Per Press Association.) San Fkancisco, Jan. 29. News was received on the 19th that a number of Hawaiian natives resisted an attempt to search the house of a prominent Royalist for arms, They fired on the search party and killed Chas. Carter, a member of the Legislature. Afterwards the rising became serious. The insurgents at first repelled the regulars, but reinforcements were obtained, and the rebels pursued into the brushwood, 500 being captured, 12 killed, and many wounded. It is admitted that the leaders of the outbreak were Nowlin, Colonel of the Queen's Guard, and Willcox, leader of the revolution in 1887. Another band of rebels was driven into an impasse, several being killed and captured. The Queen bas been placed under surveillance. About 26,000 Japanese are inclined to side with the Royalists. Washington, Jan. 22. R. R. Hitt, Republican member for Illinois, introduced the question of this revolution in Congress, as an argument in favor of an American cable, opposing a concession to anything English. The President contended that the United States had no right to interfere with Hawaii, and declined to protect any Americans who attempted to overthrow the existing Government. The Senate ignored a motion similar to Hitt's, and also one in favor of the annexation of Hawaii. January 24. The discussion in Congress over tbe outbreak in Hawaii was rather excited, owing to the report that a British steamer conveyed arms for the use of the insurRents. Mr Lodge asserted that Great Britain was trying to establish a supremacy over the Islands The United States Government has ordered a cruiser to Honolulu. London, January 22.
