MARSHAL WILSON'S STORY
HE TELLS TERRIBLE TALES ABOUT EX
MINISTER STBVENSS CONDUCT.
)
TUB LATTER AOTUALLT ADVISED THE QUEEN TC
LIVE UP TO THE CONSTITUTION-NAIVE AD?
MISSION OE THE MARSHAL THAT HE
_Trlf-t*r WAS UNKIND TO HIS
SOVEREIGN.
Washington. Nov. JB.-C. P.. Wilson, Queen Lili?
uokalani's marshal and chief of police, gave Com
missioner Blount his version of the altair of Janu
ary 16. last, and it ls embodied in the correspond
encc to be laid before Congress. Mr. Wilson writes
with a "flowing pen." He pays his respects tc
Minuter Stevens at the outset as follows:
"Troublous Indeed were the scenes nt the opening
of her (Liliuokalani's) reign, and now she has met
trouble from without, as well as from within
His Excellency, John L. Stevena, Envoy Extraor?
dinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of the United
Staten of America, had by virtue of his office an
official audience of the bereaved and mournino
sovereign in the palace on the day following thc
burial of the body of the late King, on which oc?
casion he addressed Her Majesty as follows."
Then he quotes from Mr. Stevens'b address to the
Queen on that occasion, urging upon her to make
her rtlgn a strictly constitutional one, and adds:
IT WAS A SHOCKING SIGHT.
'Picture to yourself the time nnd scene. An
elderly editor of nu obscure country Journal, acci?
dentally pitchforked into the position of the Na?
tional representative of one of the greatest na?
tions on earth-and a Republic at that?lecturing
a monarch boin and educated to the purple, a
woman in the hour of the deepest bereavement, in
the style and with the Ideas that he would have
used to a Sunday-school class of little children or
possibly to a benighted heathen from the depths
ot barbarism.
"From this time forward he showed by every
means in his power at every opportunity the deter?
mination to make himself obnoxious to the Queen
and her Government by his high-handed and dic?
tatorial actions and speeches, both to herself per?
sonally and every one in her Government that
he had to deal with officially."
Here follow a number of specifications. As to the
Queen's action in attempting to promulgate a con?
stitution, Marsha! Wilson says:
OPPOSING A MONARCH, AND SHE A LADY.
"My first knowledge thal. Her Majesty had any
Idea of promulgating a constitution was about
the 8th of January last, when we had some con?
versation- on the subject. In which I objected to
Its* suitability and feasibility at the time, although
I knew that she thoroughly believed that she was
doing her duty in the matter al a Queen toward
her people, her race and her country, and that she
was right in thus acting toward her people, who had
come to her as a last resort, having failed to get
their desires after trying every other means. To
find nie, whom she considered would acquiesce to
her every behest, opposing her was a severe strain
for i monarch, especially as she knew that I my*
s-lf was in sympathy with the general idea of
amending the constitution by having a new one.
To be met with opposition when one expects ac?
quiescence and obedience ls a severe strain to
any one, but more especially to a monarch, who ls
also a lady, accustomed, therefore, to have her
slightest wishes regarded as law.
"Aa nothln-,- further was said until the 13th, I
considered that the matter had dropped, but on
that day, in talking over the matter of the new
Cabinet, which was to be appointed in thc- presence
of her Majesty, the matter was brought up again;
1 again urged the objections which I felt to the
atep, and. as 1 thought, successfully. On the nth
of January I saw "get Majesty and Minister S.
Parker, and, after hearing the stale of affairs, 1
said:
WILSON MAKES A PROPOSITION.
" 'I'll make this proposition, as you have herc
only a native copy of the constitution; have you
an English version?"
"She replied: "Yes.'
" 'Then send for lt," I sail, 'and send for thc
rest of thc Cabinet, and let them look lt over, an<:
if they fad there ls nothing radically wrong In
it, you then sign and we will stand hy its results;
but if it ls not right, you follow the advice of
your Ministers."
"To this proposition both Her Majesty and Mr.
Parker agreed, and Mr. Parker sent for the other
Ministers, who returned to the palace. The Eng?
lish version of the constitution was sent for and
b.-.night In by ix messenger.
"The proposition was laid before the Cabinet by
myself, which they tOOtptod, and began to Inspect
the proposed constitution. Just then 1 received a
message that I was required Immediately at the
police station. On my arrival there I was informed
that Messrs. Thurston and \V. o. Smith, of the
missionary porty, were organizing and enlisting
men to overthrow the Queen and her Government.
After making inquiry 1 found that they alleged
they were organizing simply to support the Min?
istry in opposing the Queen In the event of her
promulgating a new constitution. In dc-tlance of
Ihe Ministry, by force of arms."
Marshal Wilson states that as he regarded this
as a legitimate purpose, he did not Interfere with
it. Afterward discovering their real purport, he
says:
RINGLEADERS NOT ARRESTED.
"I made a proposition to swear out warrants for
the arrest of th.- ringleaders of the plot at once.
The Attorney-General objected to the proposition,
giving the following reason.-., stating that he had
been called upon hy Minister Colhurn and Mr. L. A.
Thurston early that muming, at about tj or %SS
o'clock, who made a proposition to him showing a
course of procdure fully prepared, which, If carried
out, woulu cause the overthrow of the Queen and

VAJUO-U BtnUBAVa
Washington, Nov. 26.?The Secretary of Agri?
culture, In his report Just submitted to the Presi?
dent, regrets the vague* character of the depart
n ent organization, which he says "offers opulent
opportunities for the exercise Of the most pro
] nouneed paternalism," but he ad-^ that there are
n any proper ways in which the Federal Govern?
ment may legitimately serve the cause of agri?
culture. He devotes considerable space to a re?
view of what he regards as an anomalous part?
nership lietween the Government of the I'nited
9tates and the governments of thc respective
States, for the conduct nnd encouragement of state
agricultural colleges and experiment stations. Re?
ferring to the sum appropriated for the use of
State experiment stitlons, he savs: "This appro?
priation ls unlike any other public moneys Icgl.
lated out of the Treasury of the Knited ttateobo
I cause there ls no officer of the Knited States
j authorired to direct, limit, control or audit Its
I itemized expenditure." He suggests thal the sta
] Hons should be entirely divorced from the depart
| it ent and the sum appropriated charged directly
I to them, or that the Secretnry should have some
I power to direct and restrain their disbursements
I so as to insure a legitimate expenditure of the
I same.
In reference to expenditures the Secretary states
I that his strenuous endeavor, In view of a depleted
j public treasury ar.d of the Imperative demands of
1 taxpayers for economy In the administration of
the Government, has boen to "rationally reduce ex?
penditures by the elimination from the pay-rolls
of all persons not needed for an efficient conduct
of the affairs of the department." He gives the
number of employes when he took charge as 1.1ST
and states that there are now on the pay-rolls only
MM, a reduction of Mt) and of th.* IJM In* Ban
that eleven are on duty in the office of the Civil
Service Commission, t>> which they were assigned
by request of the commission. He complains of
the grosj inequality In the compensation of de?
partment employes, which has tddeJ to th? diffi?
culty of retrenchment. Ht has, however, during
the first quarter of the fiscal year, reduced ex?
penditures In comparison with the corresponding
quarter of last year by over $66.0*11. He presents
a table giving the appropriations for th? current
fiscal year and his estimates for next year, show?
ing a net saving In his estimates over the appro?
priations for th" -urrent year of $365,666'.M.
Among the heads of divisions charges nnder his
administration huve been exceedingly few, t.nd in
these cases the vacancies have generally bees
filled by the promotion of experlenc-d assistants
and in recognition of long, faithful and competent
service to the Government.
The distribution Of seed at the public expense l?
reviewed at length and Its growth traced from the
year MM, when Commlsslon-r of Patents Ellsworth
obtained an appropriation of H-tM fer the purpose
of colk-ctlnr? and distributing rare varieties of tttd
and for other purposes. H? shows a considerable
saving to have been effected In th.- purchase and
the distribution of the seed this year.
The work of the Hureuu of Animal Industry ls re?
viewed In considerable detail, each unc ut its prin?
cipal features being briefly considered. Th-- result of
the Texas fever regulations is pronounced to b->
highly satisfactory; but to increase their efficiency
lt ls suggested that a penalty shemld attach for
violation of the department regulations by railroad
companies transporting Infected cattle. The total
number of Import i-nti-al* inspect-u the lust year
was 463,38'J, the total BWUbsr of export cattle in?
spected. CH,542. A further reduction has been
effected by vessel inspection In the percentage ot
cattle lost at sea, the ratio being for the last year
less than one-half of 1 per cent. The law at
present does not provide for the Inspection or
horses Imported Into the country, nnd an amend?
ment In this respect ls suggested. As regards meat
Inspection the microscopical Inspection has boen
greatly reduced, ihe Intention being to contine lt
rigidly to products Intended for direct export lo
countries exacting the same. The miscroscopical
inspection costs the country 6--i per cent Of" the
value of the meat sold M countries dei?anding that
Inspection. Careful comparison of meat exports
for IX**."! with 189B shows Hint BalcroSOOpM MOPOOtMll
has not Increased our foreign sales, aad the Secre?
tary thinks it does not pay.
The work of the other divisions ls reviewed In
I detail, but briefly and without extended argument.
! The question Of forestry enies In for some special
i attention, and urgent recommendaUona ar.- made
for mor-- thorough and extended effort on its be>
j half The completion Of exp.-rim. nts In sorghum

. should tnke adraatage of what thc Departiaeat hat
! accomplished." on tbs advice of Professor Wiley,
I some further experiments with sugar beets ana
j wilh sugar tan.- In Florida are r.-coinni. lided
Investigations of the chemical character of differ?
ent typical soils of the Hatted Stater; art pro
nouneed to be desirable, and recommendation |g
made for a small appropriation. A special ap?
propriation is also recommended in furtherance
of the work of collating Information reaardlng
the nutritive value of goods for man. such appro?
priation being "to enable the Secretary of Agricul?
ture to Investigate and report upon the nutritive
value of the various articles and commodities used
for human food."
Promiscuous ' free distribution ?,f publication*,
ls condemned and the sugg'-:-' ion made ihat alter
supplying certain copies free to libraries and edu?
cational Institutions ? moderate price should be
charged for the remaining copies.
<?! the Weather Hui cm lt ls staled t!*,;,r the
work has lieen carried on with improved efllclenc)
and economy, a reduction i:i ...st of maintenance
Of nearly 10 per cenl being effected and estimates
for the fiscal year being correspondingly reuui ? 1.
A reorganization of the Hureau lui*, been partially
effected, designed to modify expenses and mag?
nify the value of the service to agriculture, com?
merce and the people *A large. The attention of
the force has been Itxed more r-tr..ri?ly than .vii
before upon the work of forecasting as a primary
duty of the Hureau to the public
Tne vast Importance of the work of Ihe Division
of Statistics ls forcibly presented. "That the work
of this division be efficiently performed and th.
Information lt gathers promptly diffused," says th<
Secretary, "ls of profound importance and vital
concern to the farmers of the Knited States, who
represent nearly one-half of our population."
Reviewing with some detail our agricultural ex?
ports and their destination, an earnest plea 1.1 outdo
for the dlverslllcatlon of agricultural exiiorts an.l
the widening of foreign markets therefor. Ref
erence to tne Immense aggregate of Imports of
agricultural products suggests the Inquiry, Ought
not a large proportion of these to be produced upon
our own soil, in proximity to our own market.1,
where this Immense demand exists ' And the reply
is in the affirmative. "Hides, fruits, nuts and

by the exporta of gokL In Jul/, however, there
began a heavy return movement of th>- metal, sup

total Increase of tho effective stock of moue}- Iii
the thr,-.- months was no less than IM.OOO.OOO,
bringing it up to a blaire much above the highest
ever before real bed.
The Treasurer rt marks thal this sudden contrac?
tion and expansion within the s|mce of eleven
months sffoi \t t striking illustration of the degree
of flexibility possessed by the currency.
Th- revised figures for thc amount of money In

less than it was a year b'fore. During the four

of <i??.-, mm .?!,! a record altogether without parallel
in th,-' historv nf the country. The aggregnt- of
monev In the hands of the people and the aver?
age per capita were thus brought to a higher
ilgur-- than had ever before been reached.
The redemptions of Knited States paner
currency have been mutually heavy, amounting
to *.r*7,i*in.non In the fifteen months ending with Oc?
tober
1 luring the f.ast two llscal ycart there was re
colned nearly one-fifth part <>f the whole estimated
?tock <vf subsidiary silver, an Improvement that ia
expected to Increase the popularity and usefulness
,.f this ;.art of the currency, contrary to expecta?
tion the Colombian souvenir coins have not proved
popular Some of them were never taken out of
the Treasury, snd others have been returned for re?
demption. An srrangemenl has been In contempla?

Although the nominal amount of counterfeit

of the amount <>f money hai died.
Considerable additions v.r,- mad.* to the bonds

On accunt of the disturbed llnanclal condition
of the country there hove been some unusual In?

Th-- lirst occurred In July and August, when the

The keilllSlimi marble church of Ht. 1'eeilla. at
Herbert and North Henry ttl. Williamsburg, was
dedicated venterd-y mornlnK by Bishop McDonnell,
of Brooklyn, in the presence of a large congregation
and more than eifihty priests. The pontltlcal
solemn high mass which followed was celebrated
by Mon-lgnor Satolll. the Apostolic Delegate. Long
before the hour named for the beginning of the
ceremonies thc church was filled with the members
of the parish. A few minutes before ll o'clock
Bishop McDonnell entered the church, preceded
by lifty priests. He was followed by Monsignor
Satolll. accompanied by a dozen of the ol.lest clergy
In the diocese. On reaching the sanctuary Bishop
McDonnell took his place on the Gospel side of
the altar, while Monsignor Satolll sat on the
l*plMtle si.le, facing the Bishop. Among the clergy?
men present were Bishop Hennessey, of Wichita,
Kan.; Vicar-General Farley, the Rev. Dr. Thomas
Shahan. profeHsor of history In the Catholic l"nl

Bishop McDonnell at once proceeded with the
dedicatory ceremonies, assisted by Vicar-General

cent de Paul's Church, and John M. Kiely, pastor
of the Church of the Transfiguration, served as
deacon and sub-deacon. The miiBlcul prognnr.me
waa under the direction of Professor I^ouls.
At the end of th.* dedication ceremonies Mon?
signor Satolll celebrated the mass. A dinner fol?
lowed the ceremonies nt the rectory, covers be?
ing laid for eighty. After the dinner Monsignor
Batolll ma.l.* a long ad-TCSt, speaking In Latin.
Pontifical vespers were chanted in the evening by

ADMIRAL STANTONS SALUTE^
TUE STORY OF WHAT HAPPENED TOLD
HY A BRITISH CAPTAIN.
INCIDENTS OF BRAZILIAN WARFARE-HOW AM
AMERICAN CITIZEN WAS REI.EA8ED FROM
CAPTIVITY RY WAR VESSEL8 AND
HOW A YANKEE SKIPPER PRO?
TECTED HIMSELF.
The British steamer Indian Prince, which arrive*
at this port yesterday morning; from Pernat-buco
brought a cargo of sugar and news, alleged to be
a faithful account, of the proceedings In the harbor
of Rio Janeiro on or about October ld. The Indian
I'rlnce sailed from Pernambuco on November 4. aad1
stopped at St. Lucia on the nth. Captain Barclay
says his vessel was In the harbor of Rio on Octa
ber I1', and remained there for several days.
He says that when Admiral Stanton entered the
harbor he ran up the Brailllan flag, and the Charler
ton fired a salute. No recognition was taken of,
this, but when the Charleston saluted the French,
Hag. that Power being the senior in rank in the
hurbor, a small guard-boat belonging to President
Pelxoto, lying under one of the forts, returned th?
salute. The captain says that Admiral Hello vis?
ited the Charleston and was treated with courtesy,
and that if Admiral Stanton was recalled for a*
breach of International courtesy the breach waa
committed, If commute-: at all, while Mello was vin*
iilni- his ship.
HOW MELI/D LOST HIS PILOT.
Here ls another story'told by the master of tba
Indian Prince: An American .cltixen of Braslllaa
birth, named Charles, was subjected to great Indig?
nities by Mello's men. Charlei. so tbs story nins,
was tn tbe employ of aa English coal comp-n-r
known as "The Wilsen*." Mello pressed Charlea
Into his sendee, and lent him to the captain of a
British vessel who wanted a pilot. The tug on whick
Charles wss pilot was fired on by the forts, and
when Charles saw that the tug wits sinking he rea
her ashore. Charles escaped and went back to tba
employ of the Wilsons, but one day, while outjUa
the harbor in a launch belonging to his employers,
both Mello's warships and Peixoto's forts find oa
the bout and Charlei was captured by Mello. Aa
he was being taken on board the Aquidaban a cap*
tlve an ofilcer, who recognized In Charles a de*
serter, rushed at him, it ls said, with a drawn swtrl
and slashed him across the head.
Charles was a wise man In his way. He had on tbe
hood of hlB boat an English flag, while at the stern.
floated the Stars and Stripes. When his capture
became known armed launches from the Charleston
and from the British warship Sirius were sent off,
and. after a little talk. Charles and his launch were
rc I oft fi ml
AN ITALIAN COMMANDER "B-CFFED."
Another tale runs something like this: A sallsr
from an Italian merchant vessel, while trying tst
land by means of a sailboat, was shot dead. The
source of the shot no one seems to know, but ths
commander of the Italian man-of-war In the har
bor Immediately demanded of President Pelxoto*
an Indemnity of I.'i.nrt). President Pelxoto did not
have the money handy, and told the Italian com
mander to come around some day when h? waa'
"Hush."
A YANK'-:'-: IK1PPU MKKT.-J A ('.CARD.
i.iptain Barclay mentioned many humorous Incl
.Luis of war as lt ls carried on In Brastl. One
relates to an encounter between an American sea
captain und one of Peixoto's guards. It appears
that the captain of an American schooner went
ash.>r.-. A guard loonu-d Into view as the plucky
captain landed, and thrust al him with his bayonet.
'Ph.- captain poached the guard on the nose, took
away lils gun, and -rave him a kick which sent
him sprawling. Beini a rasgnantiaows man the
captain did not cherish any hard feeling, and
when he was bidding adieu to his fallen enemy
he returned the gun. Tin- oilier of the day. when
li,- h.-ard of the occurrence, called the already
much-abused guard before him. Report does not
say exactly whut occurred, but the friends of the
guard say that he stood np t,. .-al his food for O
week or two.
