This chapter discusses Celso Cesare Moreno's later life, focusing on his decline as a public personality. From 1894, Moreno, now living in the United States, experienced the most difficult period of his life. He had to retreat to a more subdued existence, although he continued to frequent places of power such as Congress. This chapter considers Moreno's activities and some of the issues in which he was involved during his remaining years, including those concerning Italian Americans and his testimony in the House Committee on Territories in January 1899 about the issue of Hawaii's “Crown lands.” It also examines Moreno's initial support for Robert William Wilcox's candidacy for governor of Hawaii, how he turned against the latter on the eve of the elections, and his smear campaign against Wilcox after the elections. Finally, it describes the newspapers' reactions to Moreno's death on March 10, 1901.
