Retaliation against Russia In the present
rills will not tako taut form. It will come in
tho sbape of British action which will be
Bore offensive to Russia than the lattor's
virtual annexation of Manchuria is to
Englind. It la useless to speculate upon what
this action will be, but It will ecfllce to put
spoil tbe Cxar tho onus of beginning hostilities
ercompel him to seek a compromise. It Is some
note of this nature which Is looked for by those
who believe that Lord Salisbury is really in
it rat st In his China policy.
The Queen drove out nt Windsor to-day and
the public mind is being prepared for a further
postponement of her Majesty's Journey to
Francs. Lieut Col. Sir A. J. lligge, private sec
retary to the Queen, telegraphed to the Lord
Major of London to that effect to day, (riving as
its official reason for tho delay that it was
"owing to the unsettled weather and the rough
leu In tho Channel."
Tbe papers this morning print a tolegram
irom.Bt.retcrsburg to a news agency, presum
ably supplied through the official Russian tele
graph uency, which says: "It is understood
that the negotiations proceeding between Rus
lltandChlnaln reference to tho far Kast aro
Rfiriled as being of a confidential nature, and
It Is consequently anticipated that no direct
ipedfic Information is likely to be afforded at
the present moment to the British Government
Isregard to these matters or In respect to the
demands of Russia regarding Port Arthur and
Talitnwan."
Tbe Times regards the news from Pekln ai
comparatively reassuring. It Bays:
"An interval may occur during which diplo
matic means may be employed to avert the 111
eons'dered action on tho part of our rivals. If
delay of any duration has been actually pro
cared, Sir Claude .Macdonald. the British Min
ister, may be relied upon to make the most of it

ITotot.u lw, March 2, via San Francisco. Maroh
0. Those who keep close watch on the white
politicians In the Royalist campaign declare
that these raon aro especially active among the
Kanakas now, and ara stirring up til-feeling
that may break out at any time In a revolt such
as was planned, but nipped In the bud In 180S.
It Is said that Ac vts that tho United States re
fuses annexation will be tbe signal for an up
rising. Leading business men here are very anxions,
for they know how near to succoss the last con
spiracy came and how merollesa the Kanaka
would be In case they gained the upper hand.

I.t or Jnll nirda In Her Crew.
HoNOiut.u, March 2, via San Francisco,
March 0. The American ship W. F. nabrock or
tbo Sewall line sailed for New York on Feb. 20
after great trouble with her sailors. The Bab
cock has had about tho worst name of any ship
afloat since T. K. Oakea changed hor name.
Capt. Graham had to acoept twelvo Kanakas to
make up the full crew of eighteen men. Tho
remaining six whlto men only shipped to escape
Imprisonment here. At the last moment one of
the six jumped overboard and swam ashoro
rather than sail on the Uabcork.
At one time It looked as though the Captain
would have no otHrers, as tho mates who came
with blm from Now York asked for their dis
charge, and two who were brought from the
coast refused to stay. Finallv tho Captain se
cured os second mate a man who wns recently
released from the San Quentln Prison, and tbe
crew were all men who had been sentenced to
imprisonment for various offencos and had a
choice betweon serving their terms or shipping
on the Uabcock. One sailor preferred the prison.
On the last voyage out from Baltimore the
sailors on the Babcook declared that thoy had
been cruelly used and on the day they reached
Honolulu they all made complaint against the
Captain. The Shipping Commissioner Induced
them to unload tbe vessel by a promiso of secur
ing them berths on good ships.

VIlwdAlxut Arbitration.
Honolulu, March 2, via San Francisco,
March 0. Much feeling was arousod in the
Housoof Representatives by the demand on
Minister of Foreign Atlalrs Cooper to explain
his sudden change of policy in regard to Japan
neee Immigration. On July 25, last year. Min
ister Cooper, In a short note to the Japanese
Minister, declined to submit the immigration
question to arbitration, but three days later he
sent a second note accepting the proposition.
Thus tbe Government practically gave up tho
fight on tho ove of victory, as Japan could not
hive enforced hrrdemnnds.
Now it hae leaked out tlint Cooper handed in
his resignation rather than nend tbe second
note, but was prevailed on by Prcsldont Dolo
nnd other mombers of the Cnhlnct to remain
and to ngreo to their policy, which was adoptod
because or the fear that Japan would send a
warship to enforce her demands.

Hrwoi.ui V, Maroh 2, via San Francisco, March
0. Much bad blood has been stirred up by the
passage of tho Opium Licensing bill, which
farms out tbe Import of the drug for 9C0.OOO a
year paid to the Government. Senator Brown,
who champions the measure, declared that un
der tho old law opium was being Bmugzled into
the country in largo quantities and tho efforts
to check tbo traffic were a farce. Hcnco the
Government should fnrm out the Import of
opium, as is done in China nnd other Oriental
countries.
It Is notorious that opium smuggling has been
winked at by the customs ouiculs. several of
whom are living In luxury on Bmall salaries.
Ono result of the passage of the bill Is 3i:ru to
be a great increase In tbe consumption of opium,
as dealora, to par tho heavy license, must sell
quantities of the drug. They will send agents
to all the small tovvni to drum up trade, and as
the Kanaka is fond of opium, tbo result Is sure
to be demoralizing.

The Proposal Mr, Pavleo Makes to the IVatlvo
llnwallawe.
Hos'or.ur u, March 2. via San Francisco, March
0. An open letter has boen addressed to tho
Hawailans by Theodore M. Davles, guardian of
Princess Kalulanl, in which bo proposes that
natives give up all hopes of re establishing the
monarchy and accept the republic, provided
tbe Americans here cense working for annexa
tion. Ills proposition will not be accepted by
either side. The majority of tho natives of
Hawaii favor the monarchy, while the Ameri
cans and most of tbe Influential foreigners de
sire annexation.
An attempt was made in the Senate to kill the
annual allowance of 4.000 to the Queen
Dowager Kaplolani, but It failed. An item for
the same allowance for Princess Kalulanl was
referred to tbo Finance Committee
nxKPixo vi' its ZTXomxas.

A mob broke in with the intention of lynching
them, but after a struggle tbe prisoners escaped.
Harris was afterward run down by a searching
party and riddled with bullets In an open field.
Piggett was also lynched, but tho body has

Bomiiat, March 0. Plague rlota have begun
In the native quarters of tho city, with tbe re
sult that many persons havo been killed and
wounded. British bluejackets have been landed
to quell tho disturbances and pieservo order,
Tbe hospital officers have been attacked by the
mob, nnd n plague Inspector nnd threo English
soldiers were stoned to death.
Tho troublo originated from the presence of a
searching party which visited the nntivo quar
ter to ascertain If there were nny deaths from
the plague in the houses of the low-class Hin
doos and Mohammedans. Iho intrusion was
resented, and In a surprisingly short time a
mob collected which vented Its fury upon all
Kuropeans In sight. The polico fired a volley
into tho mob. killing six natives and wounding
many others. Business was suspended nnd all
of tho available troops and artillery wero
called out.
Tho town Is quieter this evening, but a gen
eral feellnr of uneasiness prevails. The town is
now wholly occupied by troops, and more have
been ordered here from 1'oonab. The coopera
tion of the Mohammedans and Hindoos adds to
the gravity of the situation. It Is evident that
the outbreak, which was tho most alarming for
many years, was directed against Christians.
During tho rioting European officer and po
lico were severely mauled. Several civilian
Europsans In the Btreets waro beaten and
tabbed, somo of them dangerorsly. A large
number of plague ambulances were selxed and
burned. Attempt were made to set lire to
the hospitals, but those were checked. The
Jamsetjee Hospital was the sceneof an especially
violent assault, during which an English sur
geon was badly injured. Successive rifle volleys
alone saved the building from destruction. The
number of rioters killed 1 unknown, but Is be
lieved to have been groat.

mado publlo to-night n letter addressed to a
commlttco appointed by n meotlng of Republi
can business men of the Stato In which ho con
tents to enter tho fight for tho Republican
nomination for Governor. Ho says:
"I consent to bo a candidate for Governor, In
pursuance wllh your requcSt presented to me
Feb. 7, M) loply to you has boon necessarily
dolaycd, Thoso aro tho reasons: I havo not
wanted to become n. candldnto nnd add lo
my labors tho duties of personally con
ducting a campaign. I have been endeav
oring to pcrsundo you to solcct any ono
of n dozen men of the Slate nvailablo for tho

Republican party would nccopt tho notice
served upon them by tho bourso meotlng, that
tho people intended to havo something to say a
to who should bo tliclr next Governor.
"Tho developments of tho past two week
have beon invaluable to your causo and conclu
sive upon me in determining my action. The
crisis upon us Is awfully serious In Its bearing
upon tbo future standing nnd of tho State's
prosperity. Since tho last threo county conven
tions I have had n olraror vision of thedangersof
the situation, nnd now, after taking ample time
to analyze oxlstlng conditions, and having care
fully considered every phase of tho situation
from all political standpoints, I hare arrived nt
this final decision with a comprchenslvo knowl
edge of what tho contest involves personally
and what the chances of success are.
"I am neither deceived nor influenced by
falso hopes, and know full welt what my pros
pects of success nre. with tbo drlegate-electlnr
machlnery in the hands of the enemy, with
primaries and conv cntlons bo manipulated as to
defeat Instead of register tho will of tho voter;
with the samo blgli-hnndcd methods that were
employed to send an almost overwhelming dele
gation to the last National Convention In
structed for Senator Qiny, when an overwhelm
ing majorit) of tho v titers of the Stato were for
McKiuler; with manufactured contests and
bogus clnlins, to bo HUMtalncd by a Stato Com
mlttco that can be relied upon to Beat enough
contesting delegates to give the machine
randiilato i majority ob w as dono at InBt year's
State convention with tho delegates of the
Twcnty-Bcvcnth district of Philadelphia and
tho contest that is now set up. without a scin
tilla of regularity or legality In tho Twenty
fourth district of Philadelphia, Involving six
delegates, and with u hairman who gives
timely warning that the Stato organization will
be against mo If nominated.
" But 1 ftin no moro moved by these conditions
than by the rumored deals of politicians, the
threats of churacter assassins, tho tongue of
slander, or tho tact that nearly one third of all
tho dolcgatcs to tbe next State Convention hava
already been elected.
"I ignore all personal considerations. I ac
cept ) our invitation ns n call of duty, and, nink
lng tho issue ono of principle, not spoils. I am
ready logo forward with vou In your bnttlofor
political emancipation, convinced that the rignt
will ultimately triumph and that tbe peoplo de
siro to nettle the question tbemsolves, and settle
it this very ) ear.
"If this action of vours in bringing me Into
tbe Held creates discord within party ranks I
tnko no blame therefor, ns I havo not solicited
the nomination. Neither is it essential that I he
elected Governor. It will cost me nothing to step
aside at nnv time for such a man as vou and your

more than n slate or tho will of a porpetuatlng
boss. I Bimplv hold it to he imperative tbat
somo one shall be selected to whom tbo inter
