thry have sunk to about $20,(.00,

Minister Sewnll and his wife
aud (hoir little sou, who arrived
ou tho Alameda', are at Snow
cottno in tiie Hawaiian hotel
grounds for the present and will
remain tuoro for somo time. On
sendiug in his card a representa
tive of the Bulletin was pleasant
ly received by Mrs. Sowall and
conducted to tho room in which
the new envoy of tho United
States was lyiug on a lounge.
Minister Sewall extended a very
cordial greeting to the reporter,
apologizing for his laziness by
stating that he was Buffering from
a lame toot and tuat lie bad been
up nince 2 o'clock this morning.
"Well, whiit cun I do for vou?"
said tho Minister.
"The peoplo hero are very
anxious to learn wliat are tue
presont prospects of annexation
and anything at all concerning
the probable' fate of thd Recipro
city Treaty," answered tho scribe.
"I thought that would bo the
answer. In tho matter of anuexa
tiou I can tell you nothing. My
lips are sealed by tho office I
hold. Of course, I B.aw President
McKinley before I loft Washing
ton but I am not at liberty to tell
you what took pluco in the inter
view. As regards the fate of tho
treaty you know as much about it
as I do, for my only information
is derived from the newspapers."
"Wutu BooraB to bo tuo fooling
about nnnoxution in the United
States now ?" was next asked.
"The sentiment in favor of it
seems to be on tho increase.. But
let me ask you a few questions."
Minister Sewall then inquired
after a number of friends ho had
made in Honolulu on provious
visits, first aud foremost among
them being Dr. McGrew. Whon
the reporter noxt got a chanco ho
inquired when the Minister would
assume tho duties of bis position.
"I am sure I don't know," was
the reply, "but very shortly. Mr.
Mills bus kindly consented to ar
range tbe preliminary details with
Minister Cooper and as soon aB
tbey agree on a time I am ready.
But you must see Layall, our
Here Mrs. Sewall called to a
handsome curly-headed child
about four years of age who was
too busy exploring the delights of
a Honolulu garden to stay iudoors
more than a minute at a time.
"One thing I want to tell you,"
resumed tho Ministor, "is that
both my wife and myself are per
fectly delighted to como down
hero. Ever since my probablo
appointment to this post was
mentioned wo nave boen ovor
whelmed with good wishes for my
success, and sinco my appointment
we have received bo ninny assur
ances that it was generally desired
by the people of Hawaii that we
aro compelled to beliovo it. I
did not know I bad bo many
friends in Hawaii, aud I shall bo
glad if you will extend to them
through your papor tho heartfelt
thanks, both of my wife nud my
self, for tho vory cordial greetings
we received on landing today and
sinco. Wo both feel that wo are
among friends and that our stay
in Hawaii will, bo a delightful
episode in our lives."
With a cordial invitation from
the Minister and his charming
wifo to call again tho reporter
Minister Sewall is a native of
Bath, Maine, where his father is
at the head of one of tbe largest
shipping firms in the world.
He is quito a young man, prob
ably botween 35 and 40. Mrs.
Sowall is a nativo of San Francis
co, (and is a typical California
girl. She is a deoided brunotto
aud tho vory pioture of health and
J happiness. Sbo is bound to bo-
como a great favorito in Honolu
Previous to coming down to
Hawaii Minister Sowall spent a
few days with his wife's parents
in San Francisco, which was tho
reason, he said, the reporters did
not find his whereabouts.

The rnnrn Ileal n Tnlklnu .ll.ilcli
Premior Ralli aud bis colleagues
are giving the press reasons for
the faiiuro of Greeco in thowar
with Turkey. Ralli enys if the
fleet had bombarded Turkish
ports, thero would have ensued a
massacre of Christians all round.
Skouloudis, Miuistor of Foreign
Affuirs, Bays: "Groeco had no
national grievance agdiust Turkey,
and without any outside inter
ference the Cretan affair should
have been quietly settled by the
two interested parties. But
Europe i gavo the patriotic socie
ties a chanco to agitato aud
forced unprepared Greece iuto a
disastrous war. The former Min
istry weakly opposed tho courso,
but had not the courage to rcpign.
I expected tho result. Wo huvo
been beaten by superior Turkish
numbers and superior foreign
strategy and must now mako tho
best of it." L
M. Tsamados, Minister War,
"after noting the inferiority of
Greeco in numbers and resources,
says: "Greece canuot yield Tur
key tho frontier strategic points
demanded. Brigauds would uso
them to ravage Thessaly, and new
defenses cost much."
The Ministor of Public Instruc
tion, M. EutaxiaB, wiites: "Tho
war has been one of tho cross
against tho crescent, with Europo
against Christ. The powors per
mitted our troops to land to pro
tect Christians in Crete, and then
they blockaded .lyj. The vory day
the Sultan's foreign policemen
landed in Canea, Christian blood
flowed. This country has receiv
ed a ten years' setback. All the
schools of Theasaly have been
destroyed. We bavo been making
groat progress in education. If
the powors give Turkey ono foot
of Greeco, enlightenment will bo
so much retarded and tho
Germany at first objected and
afterward assented to a collective
note of tho Powers to Turkey re
garding a settlement between that
country and Greczo. She had re
gard to tho interests of Gorman
A dispatch from AtbenB says
Great Britain has declared her in
tention to abandon tho concert of
the Powors if it is determined that
tho occupation of Thessaly by
Turkish troops shall be prolonged
until Greece shall have paid the
war indemnity demanded by Tur
key. Signoro di Felice, tho Italian
Socialist leader, rudely insulted
Premier Ralli at AtbenB. Ho was
hustled by tho polico on board an
Italian ironclad, with a request that
ho be not allowed again to set foot
The Grand Vizier has advised
the Sultan to hold out against the
Powers and keep Thessaly. Ho
said, "Your Majesty proved victor
ious in Armenian and other mat
ters when you firmly refused to bo
dictated to by Europo. Thoreforo
you should bo equally firm on
this occasion. But if my viows
aro not accepted I bog of you to
accept my resignation."
It now appoars that tho armis
tice, under which peace negotia
tions aro proceeding, was for
thred days only, and nothing but
the onorgy of' tho powors scoured
an extension for a fortnight.
It is bolieved that complications
have arison owing to thoadvocaoy
by Borne of tho powors, including
Russia, of tho Turkish occupation
of Thessaly until tho indemnity
is paid and to England's firm re
sistance to such a project. The
Greek Government is preparing
for a probable renewal of tho war.

elusion that in tho present state o
affairs it would not bo policy fox

CommissioncrE.L. Fitzgerald o
the Bureau of Labor Statistics
sent in a long communication oxi
tho Bubjoct in response to a re
quest from tho council that he
give bis ideas of tho labor situa
tion in the islands. Tho reply -was
a long resume of the report,
that tho commissioner made on
bis return from Hawaii.
Delogato Furusoth of tho Coas4
Seamen's Union and others differ
ed from the Commissioner in his
estimate that thero was no slavery,
practical or otherwise, in the isl
ands. Thoy contended that tho evi
dence of disinterested parties was
that if tiio laboring classes thero;
wero not practically in slavery
they were very near it.
Tho mattor was disposed of by
instructing tho executive comrurfc
teo to draw up a warning to
American labor to refrain from
going to tho islands for tho pres
ent. The committeo was also in
structed to gather certain informal
tiou regarding the laws of the Ha
waiian Government relating to tho
enforcement of tbe contraot labor
laws and report tho result of its
investigations at tho noxt mooting
of the council Friday evening.
Delegate Scott wanted a reso
lution adopted declaring that Mr.
Fitzgerald'u report was the result
of a political scherao looking to
ward tho annexation of tho island
but the matter was referred to.tba
committee on resolutions for con
sideration. Secretary Rosenborg moved
that Labor Commissioner Fits
gorald be invited and requested to
bo present at the noxt meeting oE
the council to answer questions
regarding the feasibility of tho
emigration scheme to Hawaii.
The motion was carried.
