The documented conspirators, treasonous persons have had their eyes on Hawaii for a long time. They also enlisted the aid of aboriginal Hawaiians/kanaka maoli/part aboriginal Hawaiians.

This is yet another segment of the PREMEDITATION Issues against the Hawaiian Kingdom.

This is part of the story of Robert Wilcox, a cousin of King David Kalakaua, and Queen Liliuokalani and his documented moves in Hawaii's history.

Now, let us explore/view Robert W. Wilcox's moves in the times of his cousins King David Kalakaua and Queen Liliuokalani reign.

Let us view his background by going over Queen Liliuokalani writings from her book HAWAII'S STORY BY HAWAII'S QUEEN which is available free at the following link: http://digital.library.upenn.edu/women/liliuokalani/hawaii/hawaii.html

About Robert W. Wilcox:

"Robert William Kalanihiapo Wilcox was the son of an American father from New England and a mother descended from Maui royalty. He was educated at the Turin Military Academy in Italy under the Kalakaua Studies Abroad program. Six-feet tall, with burning dark eyes, a Roman nose, and the power of oratory, the charismatic Wilcox was rash and changeable."
1888 - FIRST STRIKE"Wilcox led some 300 armed men in his first attempt to unseat the new government."




NEWS ARTICLES PERTAINING TO WILCOX

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 1, 1892 "Arrests for Treason In Hawaii"
"The leaders of the movement are understood to be Volney V. Ashford and Robert Wilcox".
May 24. Volney V. Ashford and Robert Wilcox with 18 others were "charged with the crime of treason against the Hawaiian Government" and arrested. "Their object was the overthrow of the existing form of government, by deposing Queen Liliuokalani and establishing a Hawaiian republic."

Note: It appears that this was a trial run for the January 1893 premeditated plan to dethrone the Queen seven (7) months later or January 1893.

Wilcox had attempted to overthrow King Kalakaua twice (1888 and 1889).

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 12, 1892 "The Hawaiian Conspirators - Their Trial is Going on at Honolulu before Judge Dole" - 20 people charged with conspiring to overthrow the Government...

The government charged them with traitorously attempting to raise a rebellion. The defense presented a demurrer, claiming there was no evidence to sustain the charges. The demurrer was overruled...the penalty for treason is death; for conspiracy imprisonment, not to exceed ten years, and a fine of $1,000. They were convicted on charges of the lesser offense or conspiracy.
