San FraneK'o Chronicle, Jan. 27.
Chicago, January 26. The
Times-Herald in today's issue
printed a long statemont from L.
A. Thurston, ex-Minister of tho
Hawaiian republic at Washington.
The matter comes from Kato Field,
tho special Correspondent of tho
Times-Herald at Honolulu.
Mr. Thurston Hays in purt: "Af
ter Commissioner Blount's roturn
from Honolulu, some months lntor,
I vninly inquired of Mr. Gresham
what tho result was. Ho would
not ovon admit that any roport
had been mado, stating that such n
roport, if made, was a confidential
ono, and that it was 'unfair' for mo
to ask any questions coucorning
it. I vorbaty reiterated to him
that, owing to the long dolay and
uncertainty, affairs woro unsettled
and in a critical condition at tho
islands, ond it would bo in tho in
terest of order and peace to first
communicate his intontions, when
decided upon, to tho Hawaiian
Govornmont boforo making thorn
public. ThiB, ho said, would bo
"On tho ovoninc of Novembor
7, 1893, being temporarily in Chi
cago, I Baw in an ovoning paper a
statement that Mr. Gresiiam had
recommended to tho President to
restore tho Queon ond overthrow
the Dolo Govornnmnt. I immedi
ately wired to Mr. Hastings, Ha
waiian Charge d'Affairs, to soo
Mr. Gresham and asked if it was
truo. Mr. Hastings did so, and
Mr. Gresham said to him: "I
assure you thoro is no foundation
for tho statement. Do you think
I would take so important a step
without informing yon?"
"Mr. Hastings telephoned mo
tho snbstanco of the roply. That
samo night, at about midnight, ho
was informed by a newspaper
man that Mr. Grosham's letter to
tho President recommending rest
oration had been givon out to tho
press associations, and was thon
going over tho wires. Tho letter
was doled Octobor 8, 1S93, nearly
a month prior to Mr. Gresham's
assurance that thero was no such
"No copy was sent to tho Ha
waiian Legation, although I final
ly succeeded in getting a mutilat
ed copy, from which clippings
had been mado, from a represent
ative 'of tho Associated Press. I
immediately called on Mr. Gres
ham and stated I had soon tho
letter and asked if it was authontio.
Ho replied: 'Of course; you
know it is authentic.' E reminded
him of his agroomont to lot mo
know tho BubBtnnco of tho Blount
roport boforo it was published.
Ho repliod: 'I did not think it
necessary. I know you would seo
it in tho papers.'
"I thon asked if it was tho in
tention of tho United States Gov
ornmont to restoro tho Queen by
force. Ho roplied, 'I declino to
answer that quostion.'
"On January 25, 1894, 1 mado
a statement to Mr. Gresham con
cerning tlio friction that existed in
Hawaii by reason of tho continued
domand by Japan that tho frnn-
clnso bo grouted to Japunoso. Ho
said, 'What do you moan by com
ing to mo with complaints about
Japan? Do you expect us to pro
toot you from Japan? I should
think that tho last country in tho
world you should appeal to for
assistance would bo tho United
States, It, is. mo3t extraordinary
that you should mako thiB Btate
mont to mo. What do you wont
me to do?'
"Ho demanded what Dole meant
by Bonding on (insulting1 roply to
Mr. Willis, rqpl'ying to Mr. Wil

lis1 domand that tho Queon bo res
tored. I denied that tho answer
wos or wo8 intended to bo in
Bulliug. Mr. Gresham said: 'I
say it wns insulting, and Mr.
Dole's object was to say some
thing sharp to tho American Min
ister when ho hod an opportunity.'
Ho continued to talk in this strain
until it beenmo manifest ho wns
simply trying to provoke a quarrel,
and I loft tlio room."
Mr. Thurston thon gives tho de
tails of a conversation with Secre
tary Gresham, in which tlw lattor
accused Mr. Hatch, tho Hawaiian
Minister of Foreign Affnirs, of
being a "scarey follow" becauso
ho said that anus for tho royalists
had been sent from California.
Mr. Gresham declared tho btory
to be utterly untrue. This was tho
day after tho insurrection had
actually occurred in tho islands
and Charles Carter has boon killed.
Mr. Thurston gives in detail tho
manner in which ho was
betrayed by a representative of
tho United Prei-s in relation to
certain lottors read by Mr. Thurs
ton to the United Press corres
pondent. Ho closes as follows:
"In his letter requesting my re
call. Mr. Gresham garbled ond
suppressed my explanation, stat
ing only that 1 claimed that tho
references in question woro news
which I had a right to give out.
"I had committed no broach of
diplomatic otiquotto, but tondored
an apology that tho matter had
como through tho Legation, oven
inadvertently, and oven though it
had not beon published. Mr.
Gresham immediately requested
on apology in writing, stating as
a reason that this wns a personal
matter botweon mvself and tho
Prosidont, and that ho ought to
know oxactly what I said. 1 Bub

Washington, January 21. -From
tho action of tlio Houso Commit
too on Commerco today thero
seonis to bo littlo doubt that tho
bill authorizing the Pacific Cable
Company to lay a cablo from the
Pacific Coast to tho Hawaiian isl
ands and Japan will bo favorably
Tho committee directed tho
sub-comniitteo to propnro a bill
embracing certain changes con
sidered desirable. Thoro will bo
also a conference between tho
members and tho State Depart
ment officials regarding tho urr
rangomouts for n cable stntiou on
Marshall islands, owned by Ger
many. Tho principal points of differ
ence between tho cablo company
ond tho committee aro tho amount
of Government subsidy to bo
granted and tho timo to bo allow
ed for laying tho cnble. It is
proposed by tlio company to have
the cablo working to tho Hawaiian
islands in eighteen mouths and
completed to Japan in three
years. Tho bill to bo drafted
will reduce thiB time. ' The sub
sidy asked is 3180,000 a year for a
term of twenty years, tho Govorn
mont to have free use of the cable
in that time.
In tho course of discussion it
was argued that tho subsidy asked
was too largo in viow of tho esti
mated cost of tho work, $6,500,000
to 7,000,000, and tho probablo
amount of Govornmont business,
which the committeo estimated at
$20,000 to 30,000. The sugges
tion wns nlso entertained that
subsidies might bo granted by tho
Jnponeso Govornmont nnd pos
sibly China. Tho bill to bo
framed will probably reduce thu
subsidy. It will also ombraco
provisions to securo to tho United
States Government tho right of
way in tho use of tho cable.
James S. Scrymsor, president,
and E. E. Bayliss, vico-presidont
of tho company, havo written to
Chairman Hepburn accepting tho
suggestion made by tho committeo
that tho company bIioII deposit in
tho Treasury $100,000 in bonds to

fied time; that tho ratos between
tho Unitod States and tho island
of Oahu shall not exceed 75 cento
Sor word and $1.50 to Japan and

Govornmont messages shall be
carried at press rates, not to ex
coed one-quarter of business rates.
