SYMI'ATMY —BOM THK PRESIDENT.
t Washington, Jan. 21.—The first offi
cial information received by this Govern
ill.nt of the death of King Kalakaua was
conveyed in a note from the Hawaiian
Minister to Secretary of Shite Blame to
day. The Secretary communicated the
fact to the President, and subsequently
r. plied to Minister Carter, expressing for
the President deep regret tiiat Hawaii
had lost a v. iseiuid good sovereign, under
whose bene_cent rule the people of
1 lawaii have prospered, and whose efforts
bad been so constantly and signally pat
forth to strengthen tho" ties of mutual ad
vantage- between the kingdom and the
United states. He farther requested the
Minister to convey to the royal l'amily
the heartfelt sympathy the President feels
for their great affliction.
There will be r.o further action bythe
Executive until an official notice "shall
have been received of the formal installa
tion of Biliuokahini. Instructions, how
ever, have been sent to the General com
manding the Division of the Pacific and
the Admiral commanding the naval forces
on the Pacific lo pay full military honors
to tin- dead King.
Acting under these instructions, the
nrmy and navy authorities at San Fran
cisco have a-ssumed charge ofthe fan* ral
arrangements, and the transfer of the re
mains to tiie flagship Charleston will be
marked by the highest military honors \
authorized by the regulations.
The Charleston will make the trip to
Honolulu as rapidly as possible. She
will remain at that point to participate in
the ceremonies attending the burial of
the King and the coronation of his suc
cessor, and will, at the same time, see
that the interests of this country are fully
While tho authorities at Washington
are desirous of doing the highest honors
to the Hawaiian Government in its be
reavement, they are somewhat perplexed
as to the best course to pursue. There
is no precedent to follow, as this is
the first fast—nee where a ruler
of a foreign country has died on
American soil. It is said, however,
that there will be ample time for further
action when the Government is advised
the installation ofthe new ruler.
A GOOP FRIEND LOST.
Secretary Blame said this afternoon
that the United States had lost a good
friend fa King Kalakaua, and it would do |
every possible honor to his memory.
"Our relations with Hawaii," he said,
are of the friendliest character, and so
far as I am able to judge will be fa no
wise affected by a change in the Govern
ment. 1 have confidence in the friend
ship and good will of Queen Liliuokalani,
and have no reason to doubt that she
will perceive the wisdom of continuing
the friendly intercourse of the two coun
Mr. Carter, the Hawaiian Minister to
Washington, said this afternoon: "Tho
death of King Kalakaua will fa no wise
affect the peaceful condition ofthe affairs
of Hawaii. I can see no reason,-' he con
tinued, "why his death should cause any
complications whatever. Princess Liliuo
kalani was Princess Regent during the
absence of Kalakaua. She was heiress to
i the crown, and all that is necessary is for
her to proclaim herself Queen. Queen
I Kapiolani is now Queen Dowager. Prin
cess Liliuokalani ruled in ihe absence of
the King, and she will simply continue
to reign the same as if tho King were
still alive, but absent from the country."
_AI—__uta's last REQUEST.
Carter amoks with considerable feeling
with regard to the failure of Congress to
amend the McKinley Act, so as to pre
scribe that its provisions shall not inter
fere with the existing treaty relations of
the United States and Hawaii, and he
hoped the vessel which will convey the
King's remains to Hawaii will also con
vey the news that Congress had carried
out tlie President's recommendations on
"Tiiis"matter," continued Carter, "un
doubtedly clouded the last days of King
Kalakaua. The last official communica
tion 1 had from him was a telegram from
San Francisco last Friday, just before the
final stupor overcame him. In this tele
gram he informed me that his health was
but indifferent since his return from the
south. He went on to urge that I use my
influence to have that clause restored to
its place iv the McKinley bill, and told
me to ask Secretary Blame to use his best
efforts in getting what in reality every
one wanted, but what as yet had not bee
In closing the interview, Carter said it
is a popular error that General Dominis,
Queen Lililuokani's husband, is a British
subject, and that her accession to the
throne means a commercial triumph for
Great Britain. According to Carter,
Gen.-.ral Dominis is a native American
haying been born fa Boston; but in his
opinion General Dominis does not cut
any figure in tiie political situation, be
cause of his long-continued infirmity.

RESOLUTIONS AGAINST DIVISION.
Redlands, Jan. 21.—The Redlands
City Council passed the following resolu
tion against county division last evening:
AViikkkas, The division work is of great
permanent injury to the interests of the entire
county, Increasing the cost of expenses of the

Ing to tlio burdens of taxation; and. whereas,
the proposed measure involves the spoliation
of the city, portioning between the counties;

Marysville, Jan. 21. — There wero
three attempted burglaries here this
morning. A blacksmith shop was broken
open about midnight, and some tools
taken. The thieves then went to the meat
market of P. C. Slattery, where they
oared holes through the door and broke
the lock. They drilled two holes into
the safe near the lock and filled them
with powder. One was a quarter-inch
hole and the other three-eighths. They
are supposed to have been seared away
before the completion of the job.
About the same time of night two men
got into the rear of Schwab's variety
store by breaking the balusters off the
stairs. They were trying to break the
doors of the store open, when frightened
away by a family living up stairs. When
i coming out they saw a policeman ap

were captured and taken to jail.

Guatemalan Government is here, buying
horses for cavalry and held artillery serv- |

than to threaten that tho peace so recently

promise of war, and already the prepara

Vienna, Jan. 21.—Several trains and
snowplows havo stuck fast in the snow
near Gumpoldskirchen. The passengers
were compelled to leave the cars and
wade through deep snow to the nearest

to the exceedingly rigorous weather re
ported from all parts of the country
They include the cases of men frozen to

THOUSANDS OUT OF EMPLOYMENT.
Paris, Jan. 21.—1t is estimated that 50,
--000 persons were thrown out of employ
ment by the severe weather. The total
loss to France in wages, by stoppage of
trade and the blighting of crops, will
probably reach 60,000,000 francs. All the
hospitals and infirmaries are crowded.

London, Jan. 21.—The latest reports
from all parts of England show an aver

Report that Ho Is Attacked With a
Berlin, Jan. 21.—An ominous coinci
dence is mentioned in connection with
the court festivities on Monday night at
Berlin. Emperor William was to have
made a speech, but his physicians in
sisted that he should not, owing to his
sore throat. This was exactly the first
public announcement made recalling the
trouble which brought about the death at
the late Emperor Frederick, and the re
collection of that fact cast no little gloom
over Monday night's brilliant assembly.
The question suggested to many minds
is whether the young Kaiser has the be
ginning of tho terrible complaint which
gave him the crown at thirty. The Ger
man press dare not hint at such a thiug,
but Berlin is full of whispers.
Salisbury Says tho Contest is Neither
Won Nor Lost.
London, Jan. 21.—Lord Salisbury, in a
political speech at Cambridge, said he
did not believe either that the home rule
contest was on the point of victory, or
that it was dead. He said: "Many posi
tions must be carried before home rule is
victorious. Even if the mysterious home
rule bill is passed, it will be our duty to
undo the mischief.
"My belief is that home rule owes its
existence to two very clever men—Glad
stone and Parnell. While they support
it I should give you imprudent advice if
1 persuaded you that its battle was over.
A vigorous struggle is still tjefore you,
The recent home rule rehearsal in Lon
don and Kilkenny proved tho Irish
men quite incapable of conduct
ing an independent parliament. It
had further shown the unlimited
power of the priesthood, whose matchless
organization swept down the man who
had been the despot of the whole Irish
movement here and in America. That is
the ruthless organization beneath whose
heel they would place the Protestants by
granting home rule."
LITTLE STIR CREATED.

London, Jan. 21.—1t has become known
that Captain O'Shea lately wrote Justin
McCarthy demanding an apology for his
hinting in a speech that a different color
would have been given Parnell's conduct
in the divorce case if O'Shea bail been
t-ross-examined. McCarthy's reply not
being satisfactory, O'Shea has addressed
him another letter, referring to McCarthy
as an "ill-constructed dummy, with straw
starting from every seam," and saying
that McCarthy possesses two qualifica
tions for his present post —meanness and
mendacity. The matter has created a stir.
London, Jan. 21.—The relations be
tween Italy and France are again becom
ing strained, owing to African rivalry.
Franco is rapidly reaching for Tripoli
and Abyssinia, and would have attached
Tripoli but for the fact that any move in
that —traction means war with Turkey,
the Sultan having resolved that Tripoli
shall remain part of his Empire if he has
to tight for it. Italy claims a protectorate
over Abyssinia, but French agents have
been trying to win the Abyssinians over
to France, and there is evidence that they
have been partly successful.
Serious Charge Against a Dlvino.
Bordeaux, Jan. 21.—A noted clerical,
Abbe Laponniere, of tho Church of St.
Sttlpicc, has been arrested on a serious
charge of embezzlement and infanticide.
A niece of the abbe's was accused at com
plicity in the death of the child, and when
Abbe Laponniere learned of her arrest he
tied from the place. When the woman
was searched, however, letters were found
on her person which disclosed his where
abouts to the officers.

three-quarters dollars for seven shipping
months, requiring handling of nearly
1,400 cars of fruit, with 000 or more for
warded by various members, we have a
grand total but a few short of 2,000 out of
about 8,300 shipped by the entire State. Tho

Financially tiie union was nevermore
prosperous. With all debts paid and
nothing outstanding, there is in tho

neers at Marion are ready to go out.
Their sympathy is with the strikers, as
the whole trouble seems to havo been tho

in favor of tlio working—urn, saying that
one Philadelphia manufacturer made
§40,000 last year, while his men were not
paid enough to live on.
All of this created a storm. One mem

a Little in tho Speculation.
Special to the Record-Union.
Washington. Jan. 21. — The Silver
Pool Investigation Committee resumed
its session this morning.
Doekery of Missouri said he had no
i personal knowledge of speculation by
Senators or Representatives. He had
heard no Congressman say that he was
interested in any silver pool, but heard
Senator Vest say that a Senator or mem
ber, he could not remember which, was
Francis t_, Newlands, of Nevada, testi
fied that he had made a little money out
of silver speculation. No Senator, Repre
sentative or officer of the Government
was interested with him directly or indi
Joseph R. Rickey, of Fulton, lie, testi
fied that ho was a banker, and last spring
purchased silver for speculation. No one
was interested with him, and he knew
nothing of any speculation by others.
Senator Vest said in part that neither
directly nor indirectly did he ever, at any
time, have any interest in silver, and
knew nothing whatever about it of his
own knowledge. One of his colleagues
told him, after the resolution for the in
vestigation was introduced, that he was
interested. This resolution, of course,
excited some comment among the Mis
sourians, it being said that a Missouri
Senator or Representative was concerned;
and in connection with that mutter,
Senator Cameron said he had bought sil
ver. I am pretty positive he said it
was after the bill was voted on.
He said he did not think that
he had done anything wrong, and he
would make that statement before the
committee. He thought he had as much
right to do that as to buy corn and wheat,
or any other commodity, His action had
not been influenced by his interests, be
cause it was after the thing was over.
Cameron said he bought it after the
legislation was passed in the Senate.
That David T. Littler managed the mat
ter for him. Cameron said Littler came
to him and told him he could mako somo
money buying silver; that he (Littler)
was going to buy some. Cameron said
he told Littler to buy some for him, and
that Littler bought and sold it for him.
Tlie Canadian Government's Action
Cuts No Figure in the Case.
Washington, Jan. 21.—1t is not ex
pected at Washington that the action
taken by the Canadian Attorney-General
on the Behring Sea case in the Supreme
Court will cut any figure in the diplo
matic consideration of the question. It
is not probable that Blame will give any
new instructions to Lincoln beyond
those conveyed to him at Washington
during his recent visit. Theso instruc
tions were based upon the argument out
lined in Blame's last letter. The State
Department will wait for Salisbury's re
ply to Blame's letter before making any
If tho English authorities do not feel
competent to deal with the case as pre
sented by the Stato Department, and v.dl
agree to make up a ease for the Supremo
Court, and will arrange to be bound by
their decision, then there could be no seri
ous objection to having the Supreme Court
act as the Board of Arbitration; but
where the English authorities come in
simply to seek to obtain something to bo
used for the purpose of embarrassing tho
diplomatic solution of the case, the court
will not for one moment lend itself to
such proceedings. At least this is tho
view of Administration circles, and this
is a view that is sustained by the best
legal talent at the Capital.
