(.Chicago Times, Feb. 17.)
Iu order to display for inspection
the other sido oi the Hawaiian an
nexation question Paul Nonmann is
at prosont scurrying across country
to Washington as fast as tho powers
of steam can carry him. Ho took
Chicago at. a stride, barely deigning
to pnuso for broatii at tho world's
fair city. Reaching tho Union depot
at 1 o'clock bv a Burliimlon train ho
merely paused to cast his valiso up
on tho bosom of a Pennsylvania
sleeping car, and then was whirled
away to tho oast. In his conty is a
princo of tho blood loyal, own
nophow to Liliuoknlani, tho "Lily of
Heaven," as also of the Sandwich
Islands. Tho princo, who appeals to
tho greatest of tho republics on bo
half of tho least of tho monarchies,
boars tho name of Kawanannkoa,
and mitigates tho burden by affiliat
ing himself to Christianity undor tho
nrst name oi uavict. Tho latter is a
stalwart, thicksot youth of dusky
comploxion and 25 summers, who, in
spito of 1ns surroundings, alloots hn
de sieclo civilization iu tho mattor of
dross and accent. On tho few occa
sions when ho opotiod his royal lips
3'ostorday ho spoko in polished, well
modulatod English, without a sus
picion of Kanaka tinge, and scorned
wholly capablo of assimilation to
latter day requirements. Paul Neu
mann himself wears a considerable
shock of gray hair, through which,
iu moments of agitation, ho is wont
to run his fingers. Probably ho
would confess to d5 3'ears. In all his
lineaments ho boars tho impress of a
man who has looked tho world in
tho face and caught its true inward
ness. Au ineffable shrewdness char
acterizes his expression and features.
EX-MINISTER JIACFARLANE IN THE TARTY.
It is obvious at first sight that
should a conflict of testimony or
opinion arise in stating a caso to tho
Washington authorities tho commis
sioners of tho provisional govern
ment would find him a dangerous
antagonist. With Mr. Neumann and
his charge is E. C. Maofarlane, ex
minister to the queen in an early
stage of tho session of tho last par
liament. Albeit ho possesses no offi
cial status in tho oyos of tho mon
arch of Hawaii, his counsol as to
matters American and knowledge of
offairs Hawaiian aro regarded as of
prime importanco by Mr. Neumann.
Mr. Macfarlano's immediate object
in visiting theso shores is, however,
connected with privato business in
Now York and St. Louis. Ho has
been further delegated bj' several
prominent firms in Hawaii to watch
the progress of ovonts iu their in
terest. Hope of retaining for tho present
tho status quo has by no means left
Mr. Neumann with tho president's
declaration in favor of annexation.
Ho bolievos that tho feeling in favor
of that movement has beon stimu
lated by a one-sided representation
of the state of the caso. Ho is here
to call upon tho American people to
listen to tho othor sido, and ho is of
opinion that when the caso is fairly
stated it will be seen that no small
injustice has been done to Queen
Liliuokalani. Ho boldly announces
himself as tho most advanced annos.
ationist in tho islands, but avows
that thoso who have come to tho
front to demand annexation possess
no claims to recognition. Noithor
tho time nor the methods adopted,
ho conceives, aro appropriate to an
nexation. Ho is hero more to pro
test against tho commissioners than
their object. Ho denounces them as
disappointed place hunters, who
have chosen a revolution as the last
desperate moans to gain for them
selves political power.
but if it woro put to a voto whether
thoso who now hold tho reins of
government should continue in pow

tho suffrages of tho inhabitants of

orably certain that thoy would not

.DENOUNCES A "PAKE' INTERVIEW.
At the outset ho spoko bittorlj' of
an alleged newspaper which publish
ed a fictitious interview purporting
to bo with himself, but having no
origin in fact.
"I want to say right at tho start,"
ho said yesterday, "that the Chicago
Horald has published a whole string
of misstatements about me. I was
never interviewed by n representa
tive of tho Herald, and yet I see au
interview published this morning in
its columns claiming to bo with ino.
It is a 'fake' all the way through. 1
know thoro aro a lot of things pub
lished that I never thought of, and
I am morally convinced that my
friond Mr. Buck never mndo use of
the expressions attributed to him,
As an instanco of the malicious ab
surdity of his tale, ho said wo woro
in no hurry to got to Washington.
That is wholly untrue, and Mr. Buck
novor said so, as ho is toportod to
have done. Wo woro delayed at
Terrace, just outside Ogdon, in tho
snow, for three hours while thoy
woro clearing tho track. Wo made
no intentional stop. Though 1 hold
tho Mystic Shrinists in gxeat respect,
wo never attended thoir ball aud no
vor thought of doing so.
"Further than that, there is no
truth in the story that I am Spreck
els' agent. I was novor even his at
torney excopt when called iu to as
sist his own lawyer. I have no con
nection with Spreckels of any sort
in this expedition. I do not oven
know his Htatus in tho question of
annexation, it is ridiculous to say
that 1 could represent hi,s interests,
for thoy aro the same as tlioo of tho
planters, whoso inou tho commis
sioners aro. If it is a planters'
movement, as tho commissioners
say, why should Spreckels opposo it?
Aud how iu tho name of common
soiiso could 1 represent him? Of
course I am powerless to dofeiul my
self against the charge.
HAWAIIAN'S AOAINhT ANNEXATION.
"Thoro can bo no question that
tlio present scheme of annexation
would help homo people on (ho isl
ands. But, on tho other hand, pro
bably liino-toiitliH of thu uloctom aro
opposed to it heart and soul. The
while population ib pretty evenly
divided on tho question, though tlio
preponderance of opinion among
thu white people is undoubtedly
ngaiuot tho scheme. .Many people,
tlio majority, indued, buliu'vo annex
ation to bo our ultimate destination,
without any stronti measures. Tho
pooplo of tho islands would offer no
opposition. It has always beon con
trary to tho poliej' of tho United
States to tako a country by force,
and there can bo no doubt that tho
American peoplo would find it more
acceptable if peaceably acquired.
Iho Hawaiian pooplo would certain
ly grant a coaling station if requir
ed without any recourso to tho pres
ent plan of conquest.
" That is tho only way I know of
describing the situation. Tho pro
visional government, arrogates rulo
to itsolf under Amorican guns with
out stopping' to inquire into tho
wishes of tho pooplo. Their emis
saries coino over hero, aud without
having ovon seen tho proposed now
constitution put. forward a quantity
of tales regarding it. Thoy said tho
peoplo had revolted becauso Liliuo
kalani desired to appoint for herself
twont3'-oight out of the fortj'-oight
members of the legislative body.
That is positively untrue, and it is
tho only justification thoy offer for
tlio revolution. The truth is that by
tho now const it ut ion the queon
would have appointed just eight
members of the legislative body out
of forty-eight, so that the claim that
she was anxious to appoint a major
ity of thewholo is ridiculous. The
fact is, Stevens has beou planning
this move for months, tf not, why
does ho say in his last despatch that
he had taken a consensus of opinion
from tho planters as to the amount
of bounty that would satisfy them
fivo months ago? What earthly ob
ject could he have in taking that
consensus unless ho woro contem
plating a coup d'etat? Ho has been
intending to assist this provisional
government in fomenting disturb
ance all tho whilo. Thero was no
need to land United States marines
on tho islands. Tho government
could havo taken earo of the disturb
ance well enough, but the queen
could not light tho United States.
"Tho queon, I may say right hero,
is tho true representative of tho feel
ing on tho island. I am au annexa
tionist from first to last, aud in my
canvass in the election of 1S92 I
stood on that platform. But tho
peoplo, though thoy olected me,
elected twenty members out of
twenty-four on tho othor tickot. Tho
peoplo aro against theso commis
sioners. The- have spread storios
of tho queen's unpopularity utterry
without foundation. Thoy havo said
I am tho tool of tho lottery ring, and
they lie; thoy know thoy lie. If thoy
had no better caso thoj' should not
attempt to put forward a case at all.
Thoy know as well as I do that I
opposed tho lottory bill.
"Tho truth of tho matter is that
these fellows who havo gone to
Washington aro smarting undor do
feat. Thoy havo tried to rim tho
islands as thej' wanted, aud thoy
havo been snowed under at two suc
consive elections. Their only hopo
is to govern under tho protection of
the Cfnited States, and so thoj' ask
for annexation. In October when I
declared myself in favor of annexa
tion in tho legislature ovoryono of
thoso commissioners opposed mo.
Now thoy aro stultifying their own
assertions. Tho peoplo aro anxious
to bo annexed to tho United States,
but they opposed any measure which
will put such men as that in com
mand of tho situation."

Tho small town of Grifton, N. C,
can probably lay claim to more divi
sions than any other small place in
the country. Tlio village is located,
it is said, in two counties, three
townships, two Congressional dis
tricts, two Senatorial districts and
two judicial districts.
Wood for tennis rackets requires
at least live j-oaiv seasoning; tnat is
to sajr, it requires to bo kept for fivo
years in the rough timber state be
fore being cut up for use. Wood for
pianos is kept, as a rulo, for forty
years before it is considered sulh
ciently iu condition to bo used.
Scandinavia sends to America tho
fewest illiterate persons, less than 1
percent of the ontiro emigration
from Norway, Sweden and Denmark,
Italy sends tho groatost number, up

It is a strange fact that whilo pa
per is boing used for do.ens of
purposes formerly monopolized by
wood, or oven a harder matorial, such
as car wheels, boxes, barrels, tubs,
pails, otc, wood is rapidly driving
othor ingredients to tho wall in tho
manufacture of nearly all the cheap
