-p1100-

Mr. Day. Only professionally.

Senator Gray. You did not appear before him as a witness?

Mr. Day. No.

Senator Gray. What time did you leave the islands?

Mr. Day. The 8th of August. I left Honolulu on the same steamer that Mr. and Mrs. Blount came on.

Senator Gray. Came from there here; that is, to the United States?

Mr. Day. Yes.

Senator Frye. Have you read Mr. Blount's report?

Mr. Day. No; extracts only.

Senator Frye. So far as you know anything about the affairs of the islands during this time, did Mr. Stevens have anything to do with this revolution?

Mr. Day. No.

Senator Frye. Did you attend Mr. Stevens?

Mr. Day. Yes.

Senator Frye. Do you remember Mr. Stevens being sick during the time of the revolution?

Mr. Day. I do not remember. I did not attend him if he was sick during that time. I attended his daughters more than I did him, although that was some little time before that.

Senator Gray. You say you went to the Hawaiian Islands in 1887?

Mr. Day. Yes; to reside.

Senator Gray. And practice your profession?

Mr. Day. Yes.

Senator Gray. Of what state are you a citizen?

Mr. Day. Illinois.

Senator Gray. Did you become a citizen of the Hawaiian Islands?

Mr. Day. I am a voter there.

Senator Gray. Are you a citizen?

Mr. Day. I do not know just what the laws are in that respect.

Senator Gray. Did you ever become naturalized?

Mr. Day. I did not take out naturalization papers.

Senator Gray. Do you still consider yourself a citizen of the United States?

Mr. Day. I believe that is a question that has not been decided.

Senator Gray. Do you consider yourself such?

Mr. Day. I call myself an American.

Senator Frye. You did not forswear your allegiance to the United States?

Mr. Day. I did not forswear my allegiance to the United States, but I did sign the constitution which requires a voter to support the constitution.

Senator Gray. Did you attend this meeting on Monday?

Mr. Day. Yes.

Senator Gray. Were you a supporter of that meeting?

Mr. Day. Yes.

Senator Gray. Were you there when the troops landed?

Mr. Day. I was in Honolulu.

Senator Gray. I mean in town.

Mr. Day. Yes.

Senator Gray. Did you see the troops?

Mr. Day. I saw them in the evening.

Senator Gray. You did not see them march up from the landing?

Mr. Day. No.

Senator Gray. You were not present at the landing?

-p1101-

Mr. Day. No; in driving about in the evening on my professional rounds I saw them.

Senator Gray. You spoke of being informed—notice was passed around on Monday evening that there was to be a movement to establish a provisional government. Did you get that notice?

Mr. Day. I got a statement.

Senator Gray. On information?

Mr. Day. Information; yes, sir. It should hardly be dignified as an official notice.

Senator Gray. Who informed you?

Mr. Day. Mr. George Smith.

Senator Gray. The person at whose office the meetings were held?

Mr. Day. No; he is a wholesale druggist there.

Senator Gray. Not the Mr. Smith who is a member of the Provisional Government?

Mr. Day. No.

Senator Gray. Was Mr. George Smith a supporter of the movement?

Mr. Day. Yes.

Senator Gray. Is he an American?

Mr. Day. Yes.

Senator Gray. How many Americans were on the committee of safety?

Mr. Day. I do not know; I will have to look over the list to tell you that.

Senator Gray. Henry A. Cooper?

Mr. Day. Do you mean by Americans the same as myself, born in the United States and living there under the laws and having sworn to support the Hawaiian constitution and abide by their laws?

Senator Gray. You may call it an American living there and in business there.

Mr. Day. I do not know how our statutes are; whether we are Americans.

Senator Gray. The same as yourself.

Mr. Day. Yes; Henry A. Cooper is an American, the same as I am.

Senator Gray. F. W. McChesney?

Mr. Day. American.

Senator Gray. W. C. Wilder?

Mr. Day. American.

Senator Gray. C. Bolte?

Mr. Day. German.

Senator Gray. Andrew Brown?

Mr. Day. Scotchman.

Senator Gray. William O. Smith?

Mr. Day. Hawaiian.

Senator Gray. Henry Waterhouse?

Mr. Day. English.

Senator Gray. Theodore F. Lansing?

Mr. Day. American.

Senator Gray. Edward Shur?

Mr. Day. German.

Senator Gray. L. A. Thurston?

Mr. Day. Hawaiian.

Senator Gray. That is, he was born there?

Mr. Day. A Hawaiian of American parentage.

Senator Gray. John Emmeluth?

Mr. Day. I think he is a German.

Senator Gray. W.R. Castle?
