All this Fuss and Scare, and
At fifteen minutes after midnight
last night Mr. John F. urn the
Minister of the Interior of Her
Majesty the Queen was roused out
of his sleep by the arrival at his
residence of a number of policemen
under the command of Deputy
Marshal Arthur Brown, with
whom was the notorious ''senior
captain" Lorrin Andrew, a near
relation of the equally
notorious statesman Lorrin An
drew Thurston.' Mr. Brown
produced a warrant signed by
District Judge Luther "Wilcox
authorizing a search to be made
of the premises of Minister Col
burn. Tho reason alleged in
justification of the search was
that a large quantity of arras and
ammunition were secreted on
the premises mentioned.
Mr. Colburn who acted
as courteous and gentlemanly
as could under the circumstances
be desired, informed marshal
Brown that there were in his
house three rifles and one revol
ver. One rifle and the revolver
were duly registered at the pros
per time and the marshal was
aware that those weapons were
in tho possession of Mr. Colbnrn
The two other rifles were brought
to Mr. Colhurn's house from Ka
hala, when that pleasure resort was
abandoned by the gentlemen who
enjoyed fishing shooting and other
sp.rts at that place. One of the
rifles is supposed to belong to"
Julge Whiting, and the other is
the' property of some other friend
of the Kahala crowd.
The Advertiser tries to make
capital out of the affair and pictures
Colburn as "burning with rage"
and the "women" very angry. We
do not know from whom the Ad
Tertiser has received it3 inform
ation, but it seems evident, that
Captain Andrew must have fur
nished the material of the report.
The ladies of the Colburn family
were by no meanB disturbed
by ' the intrusion of a lot
of rowdy police offiew.
Mir. Colburn especially
desires to mention the very consi
derate manner in which Mr.
Arthur Brown conducted the to
him at least surely unpleasant
task. At the same time we must
make a remark on the boorish
action of.the Makaw&o bullock boy
who traversed the bedrooms of the
ladies with his head covered and
even- other display calcu
lated to prove his innate
vulgarity. It wns unfortunate
that there wasn't a cat
available, or he would have been
served with it. The "senior"
captain- didn't carry a lasso for
Well upon an investigation it
was learned that- the report
which was received . by the
Marshal, and which induced
him to make a howling
ass of himself was caused by
the importation through the firm
of W. G. Jrwin ami Co.. of four
boxes of pine-apple plants, which
arrived hero by the Mariposa.
These boxes were forwarded' a
few das ago to the residence
of Minister Colburn, and tho
dirt- spies of the Marshal na
turally made capital of the affair.
That the P. Gr. are doing all
they can to prevent and chock
the industries which Messrs
Thurstdn, Emmeluth and their
gang have pretended to further is
natural, but if a man who
imports the finest kind of piue
apple plants is to be insulted")
and outraged for doing so by a
mentally and physically defective
man like E. G. Hitchcock it is
rather worse than we expected.
The rttorney of Minister
Colburn, Hon. C. W. Ashford,
called together with the Minister
on' Marshal Hitchcock to-day and
made a demand for an explana
tion, and for the rifles which the
police officers stole from his
residence. The Marshal was
extremely affable and offered to
mako all the redress in his power
to smooth over the outrage which
his spies led him into commit
ting. Minister Colburn desired
to be placed face to face with
the informer, who was the im
mediate cause of the perpet
rated outrage, and wo understand
that both the Marshal and
Judge Wilcox are anxious to
clear up a matter which
has caused Si many comments
and created so much ridicule. We

lately that there has been a great

More Damage to the City
of New York
NOT WORTH THE RAISING
The Steamer Virtually a Total
POLICY OF PROCRASTI
NATION. A Surplus of Bosses, Too Manj Suction
Pomps and an ibseuce of Hood
There still seems to he some
doubt as to the truth of the rumor
that Captain Whitelaw, has been
deposed as wrecker of the City of
ew York, and substituted by
Whatever may be the truth in
the matter, the change can be of
little benefit or loss now, that the
steamer which has kept everybody
guessing and prophesying for over
a month, is uudoubtedly by this'
time reduced to a bottomless con
dition. 'The failure of tho vessel to be
dashed from her position on the
rocks and the inability of immense
waves to move her so much as a
degree of aii angle from her list to
port during the south and south
west storm of the past forty-eight
hours strengthens the belief that,
when she struck she was pinned,
firmly by numerous jutting points
of rock, and not simply dented as
has been often described.
Although swells of gigantic pro
portions swept the remains "of the
New York from early Saturday
morning until late last evening,
her' hull still Remained bow on to
The position of the afterpart
of the vessel has not been chancr
ed in the matter of a list, but
the after hurricane deck has
sunk almost out of sight. All of
the deck-houses that withstood
the waves of Saturday morning
were washed away yesterday-and
the ship's spars are reported to
have worked loose.
It may be possible that the
steamer will disappear during the
night, or perhaps this morning,
but it is tho opinion of sea capt
ains that she will remain in the
same position at Point Bonita
for months to come. They do
not think that the vessel can be
raised. Of course it wonld be
folly to assert that the wreck
cannot under any cirenmstanses
be gotten off the rocks, but it
cannot be done except at an ex
pense far in excess of its intrinsic
Suffice it to say under these
circumstances that the New York
is lost, and it is not unjust criti
cism to revert to the remarkable
manner in which she has been
handled since she struck the
point. Yery strange have been
the proceedings of those in
charge of tho "wreck; their pro
crastination and outward signs of
misjudgment have along stood
out in bold relief and were un
At- no time" has the New York
come near being saved, except on
the first day that an attempt was
made to raise her.
Captain Gray wanted to use his
rngs and his Captain Whitelaw
his pomps, but orders from head
quarters prevented. The pumps
had been working and were
lowering the Water in the hold,
the time had come to strain
nawsers and float the ship, but a
baby swell set in and settled tho
fate of the big steamer.
Since that time about $23,000
has been expended in tryiug to
raise the steamer and several'
thousands of dollars must bo'

wrecking pumps and boilers- No
attempt was made to save the

"The New York is as good as

yesterday. "She is of no value

all who have watched the wreck
that the City of New York is
without any manner of doubt a
total financial loss, if nothing
