His Demand for an Explanation of

Minister Stevens Tells the
Senate Sub -Committee
About the Bcvolu
"WAsniXGTOX, Jan. 20. The president,
in a brief uote of transmittal, today sub
mitted to congress the latest correspond
ence relating to Hawaiian matters. It
inmnrik: enma Virinf nfltPR of Minister
Willis co Secretary Gresbam, which
unimportant. The chief features are let
ters passing between Minister Willis and
President Dole, as reflecting on tha presi
dent of tbe United States. In another let
ter from President Dole he specially in
quires of Minister Willis concerning the
instructions authorizing the use of force.
Both of these matters appear to have been
settled by the receipt of tbe last message
of the president to congress and tbe in
structions of Secretary Gresham to Min
The most important part of the corres
pondence consists of a long letter from
Minister Willis to Secretary Gresham,
containing enclosures of correspondence
between President -Dole and himself. The
letter is dated Jan. 5, and says:
"On Wednesday, tbe 27th ult., at 12
o'clock a. m., the steamship Oceanic
arrived, with newspapers containing the
president's special message in fall, to
gether with the instructions. The mes
sage was reproduced in the afternoon
papers under conspicuous headlines. At 4
o'clock on tbe same day I received a letter
from Mr. Dole, minister of foreign affairs,
asking to be informed 'with the least de
lay whether you (I) hold instructions to
enforce your policy with the use of arms
in any event.' The information desired,
although fully embodied in the president's
message, migbt have been asked for, and,
except for the remarkable statements con
tained in tbe letter, would have been
promptly and satisfactorily given in a few
words. Confident that charges so surpris
ingly and unjustly made could not be sus
tained, an answer was, on the following
morning, sent to Mr. Dole, asking that
they be made moie 'direct and specific.
On Friday morning I received a letter
from Mr. Dole, saying:
" Tlie special message of the president
has rendered any further correspondence
on the subject of my letter of tbe -27th of
December unnecessary,, as the message
satisfactorily answers tbe question. But,
if you still desire the specifications re
quested, I will be ready to furnish them.'
"The instructions to me from the, presi
dent had been strictly followed, or, if de
parted from'at all, Itbad been in favor of
the beneficiaries of our wrong-doing. I
felt therefore that the statements contain
ed in the letter of Mr. Dole of tbo27tb were
directed, not at me oersonally, bat at tbe
president, and should be qualified or abso
lutely withdrawn. Believing from the
bighbaracterand Bensoof justice of Mr.
Dole that if lie re-examined his letter such
would be the result, I wrtO him a note.
This note was delivered at bis residence ou
the night of the same day (Friday, Dec.
29,) upon which his second letter was re
ceived. Having received no answer up to
Sunday nigbt, Dec. 31, aud having occa
sion to communicate with his colleague,
Mr. Damon, upon another matter, I called
his attention to the failure of Mr. Dole to
reply to my uote, which, 1 explained, was
written with no unfriendly purpose, but
was, hs he himself declared, for the best
interests of all. He informed me that the
auvisory council met next day at noou,
and thought that the subject would then
receive attention. On Jan. 1, I received a
letter from Mr. Dole, in which he states:
'It is not my inteution to withdraw any of
my letters ' This, of courae, left every
charge and statement in full force as of
"Believing these charges, whether so in
tended or not, reflected very uu justly unon
the president, the same day I replfed:
'The desiied speciucations will be furn
isned at your earliest convenience.' Up
to this hour (Jau. 5) no reply has been re
ceived to this request, nor have I any inti
mation when one may be expected. My
request for specifications has been in the
hands of the minister of foreign affair:;
since Jan. 1. This delay is a cause of
greatsurprise and regret, lam Jully pre
pared to show that every step taken by the
lepreseutatives of our government has
been in the direction of rsace and good
In the note to Mr. Willis from Mr. Dole,
dated Dec. 27, the provisional president
"I desire to call the minier'a attention
to the excited condition of the populace,
which is due to the minister's statements.
From the time of yenr arrival in this coun
try the forces of tin, country were or
cunized and amply sullicient to suppress
any internal disorder. After your arrival
you made communications regarding youi
policy which were ambiguous, aud for
sever.il weeks you failed to dis
close your intentions, and have only
partially done -o up to the present
moment, leaving this government to infer
what they may from tne letter from Mr.
Gresham aud the president's message, in
which it has been declared in very dis
tinct language that the deposed queen
ought to be restored by the United States,
and to leave the United S'ates to infer
that this assumed obligation would be
discharged. Your language, expressed in
public, declared that you mteuded to per
form some act when the time arrived,
without disclosing what the act would be.
The apprehension of both political parties,
as well as persons who remain neutral in
these matters, is that you hold instruc
tions to ue physical force for the restor
ation of the monarchy.
"In consequence of your attitude in this
matter, the enemies of the government,
believing in 3-our intentions to restore ttie
monarchy by force, have become embold
ened. Threats of assassination of the of
ficers of this covernment have ben lends:
the police force is frequently iufortned ot j
conspiracies to creaie uisurucr; -igea anu
sick persons of all nationalities nave b:en
and are in a state of distress and anxiety;
children in schools are agitated by fear of
political di-turbance: unprotected women
have received tne promise of asylum from
the Japanese representative ngniust a pos
sible disturbance arising in consequence
of an American invasion.
"This government is relnctant to be
lieve that this condition ot affairs was con
templated or expected by yourself or by
tbe president ot tbe United States. I have,
therefore, to asfc you to inform me with
out the least delay whether yon hold in
structions to enforce your policy with the
use of arms. In any event, I trust you will
be able, in reply, to s'Te assurance that
wi:l tend to allay the apprehensions exist
ing in tbe community."

THE SESATE DTQUIRT.
WAsnrKGToy, Jan. 20. Ex-Mi nister
Stevens was before the eub-cominittee of
the senate committee ou foreign relations
today. Senator Gray of Delaware ex
amined Mr. Stevens very closeiy on tbe
points where lie bad been charged by Com
missioner Blount with aiding the revolu
tion. The ex-minister stood by the state
ments that be has previously made, and
gave the committee no opportunity to show
by his testimony that theUnited Stutes was
in any way responsible for the revolution.
Mr. Stevens was emphatic in the declara
tion that the revolution would have oc
curred in any event; that it was only a
question of time, nnd that the queen, ia
j trying to overthrow the constitution,
iorcea it at tne particular time wuea it
Mr. Stevens proved a willing witnesf.
He was fall of the subject, and was aux
ious to throw all the light possible upon
tbe soinewbat complicated problem. He
defended his course in tbe islands from
first to last, and found abuudant oppor
tunity to reply to and characterize in no
complimentary terms the reflections made
by the president and ex-Commissioner
Blount upon his policy. He admitted
tbe annexation of the islands to the United
States, but asserted that instead of allow
ing this fact to influence him in having
the American troops lauded, in his
acknowledgment of the provisional gov
ernment uud in assuming a protectorate
over the islands in the name of the United
States, he bad held back from this course
as long as it was possible to do so without
doing grave injustice, aud permitting
matters to assume a shape which would
have been detrimental to the interests of
this couutry and its people, not to say re
pugnant to bis sense of humanity. Mr.
Stevens explained his course fioin the
time he reached the islands until the day
of his departure. Tbe story was told m
detail, and tbe ex-miuister had a most at
tentive audience during his recital.
Washington, Jan. 20. At 11:10 o'clock
the consideration of the tariff bill was re
sumed in the house, the pending amend
ment being that of Mr. Henderson of
Iowa, to substitute the existing rates on
agricultural products for the agricultural
schedule of the Wilson bill. Lost 113
Mr. Wilson asked unauimous consent
that on Tuesday three hours be set aside
for tbe discussion of the coal schedule and
three hours for the iron schedule. After
some parleying this was agreed to.
Mr. McHae of Arkansas gave notice that
he would on Monday offer an amendment
to strike out tbe sugar bounty.
Mr.Crain of Texas offered an amendment
to the tariff bill, to reduce the duty on
woolen goods trom 40 and 45 per cent to 33
per cent, aud Mr. Simpson of Kansas of
fered an amendment to place all cotton
and woolen goods on the free list.
A long debate followed, Chairman Wil
son urging the Democrats to stand by the
committee, and both amendments were
easily defeated without a division of the
A message from the president, transmit
ting further correspondence ou the Hawa
iian imbrogolio, was then presented. At
the request of Mr. Hitt, the Dole letter
was read. . It excited republican applause
at several points. Afterward, at the re
quest of Mr. McCreary, Mr. Willis' reply
was read, aud. in turn, received the up
proving plaudits of the Democrats. The
tiubsequent correspondence evoked alter
nately the applause of one side or tbe
other, the Republicans expressing their
approval of Mr. Dole's letter, aud the
Democrats of Mr. Willis' communication.
Party lines seemed stiictly drawn..
At the conclusion of the reading of the
message and accompanying papers, they
wera referred to the committee ou foreign
affairs, and tbe consideration of the tariff
bill was resumed; but for the rest of the
afternoon Hiwaii was almost the sole
topic ot conversation on the floor.
During the session a veto of the Xew
York and New Jersey bridge bill was Sent
In br the presidedt.
At o:'M o'clock the committeo rose, and
tbe bouse recessed until 8 o'clock, with an
important amendment offered by Mr. Hitt
pending, the ooject oi wnica was to lorce
Canada to admit our coal free, in return
for tbe free admission of Canadian coal
into the United Stntes.
At the evening session a number of
speeches, nro and con, were made on the
Wilson bill. That by Mr. Boatuer of Lou
isiana elicited the most interest. He cen
sured the ways and meaus committee for
reporting a bill which, he asserted, savor
ed so much of the protective policy. He
thought that the committee should have
placed a duty upon sugar instead of main
taining the bounty.
THE INCOME TAX.
Washington", Jan. 20. Representative
Hall of .Missouri today explained a number
of details of the iucome tux bill to be re
ported to the house on Monday. Mr. Hall
is regarded in tbe house as the originator
of tbe entire plan of tbe income tax. He
has discussed the subject fully with Presi
dent Cleveland and with various members
of the cabinet. Today Mr, Hall said:
"I find that there is much misapprehen
sion as to the amount of income which
will be subject to tux. If. for instance, a
man receives a salary of .000 a year, tbe
opmiou seems to prevail thut this entire
salary is subject to a 2 per cent tax. Aa a
matter of fact, however, all class of in
comes have an exemption of 4 000, so that
a man receiving a sulry of $5,000 would
pay a tux on only i 1,000.
"One of the most mexplainablo things
to me is the opposition to this iucome tax
bill, as adopted by the ways and means
committee, from the wealthy classes of
the United States One objection agHiust
tbe bill is that it U inquisitorial m its
character. So la a custom house tax in
quisitorial, and the internal revenue tax
on whisky and tobacco, as well as tbe
personal property taxation which is re
sorted to by thirty-nina out of the forty
four states ot the" Union. Another silly
argument is that nn income tax is a
reward for perjury. Instead of this
measure being a reward to perjury by its
passage, if we refused to pass it because
this claim is made, then tbe refusal to pass
it, from such an argument, will be re
ward to the would-be perjurer. The
danger arising from tbe investigation of
the operations and methods oi business
men is entirely destroyed by the first prt
of section 10 of the bill, which punishes
severely any collector or deputy colleator
who divulges any in fortnafon regarding a
person: financial condition. I 4iked the
members of tb ways and means commit
tee if th-y conld even theoretically frame
a tariff bill wi'hout an Income tax that
would yield sufficient revenue for the years
lcf3 and JKj .nd not leave a deficit of f2.t,
000.000 for ISO" and 15&5, and they said tbt
it conld not be done.'
THE SUGAR SCHEDULE.
Wasud.'GTOX. Jan. -0 Tbe contest over
the sugar schcdal is likely to be precipi
tMtdon Monday next by Rsprts-atatlve
Herter of Obio. He vil os jliat day move
an smendmentto tbe Wilson bill, doing
away with the sngar bounty and pattins n
tax of 1 cent per pound on sugar. This duty
is int-nded lor revenue only, saya Mr. Bar
ter. Representative Johnson of Obio will
champion absolute free ngar, without
bounty or duty. Tbe Lcnhiana interest
are preparing for a hot discussion.

the Town of
Washington, Jan. 20. The senate com
mittee ou rnilroads has finally concluded
its consideration of the hill requiring rnil
roads passing through public lauds to
stop at tbe towns selected by the secretary
ot the iuterior and today authorized a fa
vorable report upon tbe bill, with minor
amendments. The condition of affairs
which caused the introduction of the bill
arose in connection with tbo towns of
Enid and Round Pond iti Oklabomn, ou
tbe line of the Chicago, Rock Island and
Pacific railroad. The railroad company
has made strong opposition to tbe bill,
but the iuterior department has contended
tor its passage.
Oklahoma City", Jan. 20 Specfal.
Major Moses Xeal, allotting agent for the
Kickapoo, 1b having excellent success in
iuductug that tribe to take its allotments.
Tbe survey wiil be completed this week.
He has enrolled ItSO, aud 120 more are to be
enrolled. They have been holding off, in
hopes that the interior deptrtmeut would
modify its orders. They collected $00 a
few weeks since aud sent a representative
to confer with the president. They said
that iu case uo change was made they
would take their allotments. Wah-pah-ma-sba-wah,
tbe blind chief and leader of
the disaffected faction, baa been the one to
deity matters. Jo Mack, a Klckapoo,
claims that he has heard from Washing
ton, aud that the powers that be are un
changeable. No man can do more with
these worthless wretches, for they are one
of tbe worst tribes, than Major Neat.
General Edward L. Thomas, formerly of
Kiowa, L T., is now in charge of the S ic
and Fox agency. He has just beau paying
off the Indians under bin charge. The
Sac and Fox tribe received $,00U and the
Big Jim, chief of one of the bands of the
Absentee Shawuees, and a grandson of
old Tecumseb. is obstinate as ever. He
would not sign the treaty which the
Cherokee commission negotiated; neither
would he nor bis band take their share of
tbe 1100,000 which the government allowed
the tribe. He aud bis band are contem
plating going into the Cheiokee and Creek
country, being unwilliug to live where
there are so many white men.
Tbe Indian school at the Stc and Fox
agency, Superintendent Ross, has five
teachers ami ninety pupils, and that at
Shiiwneetowu, Superintendent Harris,
three teachers aud fifty pupils. The
schools are in excellent condition.
Washington, Jan. 20. Mr. Clarke of
Oklahoma, representing tho single state
hood faction for both tho Oklahoma and
ludian Territories, aud ex-Representative
Peel, attorney for the Creek nation, which
is fighting statehood for tho ludian Ter
ritory, have appeared before the sub
committee of tho senate which has the
question under advisement, and submit
ted their respective claims. Mr. Clarice
made a strong presentation of the claims
for statehood iu behalf of tbe two terri
tories. In estimating tbe population of the In
dian Territory he bhowed by t he school
census that there were over IWO.OOO whiles
in the Territory. He reviewed tb it dark
chupter of crimes iu the Territory and the
consequent expense to the government, all
of which would be done away with if state
hood should be coufereed. He alleged that
it would be a crime against civilization to
leave the Indian Territory to continue in
lawlessness, while conferring statehood on
Oklahoma, and concluded by showing
from every standpoint tbo necessity for
mnklnc one state out of both territories.
Mr. Peel's speech vrim a presentation of
the treaties with the live tribes, and in
support of his claim that the Indians were
unanimously opposed to having statehood
forced upon them be called attention to
the memorials and resolutions from each
of the tribes which have bsen presented to
congress, and numerous letters written by
prominent men of the nation.

of the purchat-e of the county jail, was re
ceived this morniug with much rejoicing.
The seutimcat of tbe people locally was
unmistakably with the commissioners in
'all of their acta, and the action of the
party bringing tbe injunction riult was re
garded purely as a mutter of personal aud
political spite. That tbe county commis
sioners had acted wisely and wholly with
in tbe authority of law wb.ch tbey have,
has never been questioned by aay one well
informed on the subject. The outcome
was none other than was expected confi
dently by our test citizens.

business to awaken tbe resident of the
northern aud western portions of this city,
announcing when tbe door tell is respond

freaks in n Cu;cgodirne mu.eum If per
mitted to talk she wonid prove oae of tbe
greatest drawing crds o tbe s-ason.
