VOLUNTEERS CALLED FOR.
The new government then called for

number of 500. The old government
surrendered without striking a blow,
although it had about 4UO men under
arms and a battery of Ga ling guns.
The new government then notified the
foreign representatives of the change in
government and asked recognition. It
waa at once granted by all the powers
but England. The provisional govern

parties to continue in the government
service except the following: Queen

A strong force of volunteers took pos
session and is now in charge of the pal

quarters the work of military organiza

volunteers continued to pour steadily in
from all quarters. It is not exDected
that any difficulty will arise upon the

day and a large part of the night in per

wheels of government to the changed
order. Meantime the ordinary routine
of government work is going ahead with
bat little break.
THE GOVERNING IDEA.
Tbe governing idea of tbe provisional
government is to maintain peace and
carry on the business of the government
nntil a treaty of annexation to the
United States can be negotiated.
Tbe Hawaiian steamer Claudine wae
chartered and left Honolulu on the
morning of Wednesday, 3 (.111,(1 Try If",'.,
with five commissioners aboard instruct

missioners are Lorrin A. Thurston,

Charles, L. Carter and Joseph Marsden.
Tbe Claudine also brought up repre
sentatives of the deposed queen.
THIS ENVOYS TO WASHINGTON.
Meeirs. Carter and Wilder Outline the
Object of Their Mission.
San Fbancisco, Jan. 28.—Charles L.
Oarter, one of the commissioners to
Washington, appointed by the provin
cial government of Hawaii, made the
following statement to the Associated
Press: "The object of our visit to
Washington is to have the United States
take possession of the Hawaiian islands;
we want to join the union, not as a
state, however, but under a territorial
or district form of government. A gov
ernment like that of tbe District of Co
lumbia, with the addition of a governor
appointed by the president, is prefera
ble for many reasons. There are so
many Chinese and other cheap laborers
on the islands, who cannot be trusted to
vote intelligently, that if univereal suf
frage is declared, tbe whites who repre
eent almost the entire business interests
of the country, would be out-voted and
powerless. An entire new system of
government must be built up, and the
only way is to have the United States
take charge. It must come to this or
the whites must leave the islands.
Their interests are too great, however,
for them to give up without a struggle,
and a revolution waa the result.
"The new constitution, which wae
brought out by the queen granted her
almost absolute power and disfranchised
the white voters. The nativeß them
aelves, as a rule are not in lavor of the
ex queen's plans. She is supported by
• certain clique of about 20, who are
anxious for political power. The queen
ia jealous of the power of the whites, and
ia an ambit ious, scheming woman, badly
advised. Under the old regime she had
no cause to complain. She enjoyed an
income of between $75,000 and $100,000
• year, with no responsibility. But she
undertook to mix in politics and got the
worst of it. The queen was supported
by her favorite, C. B. Wilson, marshal
of the kingdom, and government troops.
Wilson swore in a number of deputies,
and in all the queen's forces amounted
to about 400 men. The queen's plan
waa a clever one, but she lacked the
nerve to carry it out. She waited until
after the legislature had adjourned, and
then got 20 natives and dressed them
np in long-tailed coate. She gave them
a petition for a new constitution, which
they did not understand. Everything
went according to programme until the
members of the cabinet requested to be
"The revolution was almost a bloodless
one. Only one man was hurt, a native
policeman, who was shot by Mr. Good.
Good wae in charge of a wagon contain
ing supplies of ammunition for the rev
olutionists, and the police "ttempted to
capture it. Good, who iB a man of
great firmness and resolution, shot down
one of the policemen and took the am
munition to tbe place where it would do
the most good—to tbe men who were
resisting the queen. Fortunately there
waa no necessity for a resort to arms,
and further bloodshed was avoided."
"Oar commission," continued Mr.
Carter, "will call on the president and
secretary of state at Washington, and
wa will do our best to negotiate a treaty
of annexation. We do not have tbe
power to make such a treaty, but wil

have ts refer all si'eh matters to the
provisional government at Honolulu."
MR. WILDER'S BTATIMBNT.
William C. Wilder, another of the
commissioners, explained the situation
of affairs to an Associated Press repre
senative. Mr. Wilder is president of
the Hawaiian Interisland Steamship
comyany, and is heavily interested in
Hawaiian property. He eaid : "If the
United States wants the Hawaiian is
lands she can have them now, and on
terms more favorable than ever before
offered, or than will ever be offered
a«ain. All tbe Americans on the islands
are a unit for annexation, and the new
provisional government and its aims are
supported by nearly all the English
there, and all the Germans. Tho for
eign interests in Hawaii amount to about
$40,000,000, $30,000,000 of which is in
the hands of Americans. Honolulu is
as much an American city as San Fran
"If the United States government
should refuse to annex the islands, do
you think Great Britain will step in and
take poeseesinn?" was asked.
"That question I can not answer,"
said Commissioner Wilder, "but this I
do know, the qneen is strongly in favor
of British rule; and, if allowed, would,
I have no doubt, apply to Great Britain
"Why was the British government the
only one of the powers represented in
Honolulu that did not recognize tbe pro
"that I do not know. England is
represented on the islands by Commis
sioner J. H. Woodhouee. He, in com
mon with the other representatives, was
notified of the change in the govern
ment, but returned no answer to the
communication. He may have changed
his mind, however, aa he had an inter
view with the acting president just be
fore we left.
"Queen Lilionkalani," continued Mr.
Wilder, "if ehe had been allowed to
carry out ber plans, would have be
come absolute despot of the islands; no
whites would have been allowed to vote.
The house of nobles would have been
abolished; the supreme cpurt judgeß,
who are now appointed for life, would
have been appointed for a six-year term
only, and would have been subject to
dißmiesal at the whim of the queen.
"We were glad to have the United
States ship Boston in Honolulu harbor.
She was the only man-of-war in port,
and while ehe did nothing beyond the
landing of armed sailors who patrolled
tbe street, yet the moral effect was good
and probably quelled any disposition to
fighting on the part of the natives, had
there been any. The Hawaiiana, as a
rule, are a simple, peaceful and indolent
people, and would probably make no
trouble if let alone. They are easily
influenced, though, by politicians, and
were convinced by the queen that she
waß acting in their interests.
"I understand that the United States
warship Mohican has been ordered
to proceed at once to Hono
lulu to assist the Boston in
maintaining order. We would much
prefer to have some modern warships
like the Charleston and San Francisco,
which are now on the Atlantic coaet.
I think the Boston will be able to con
trol the situation withont trouble, but
more ships would do no harm."
SAN FRANCISCO MERCHANTS INTERESTED.
The commissioners this morning re
ceived an invitation from the San Fran
cisco chamber of commerce to meet the
directors of that body and discuss the
The invitation was and the

THE NEWS AT WASHINGTON.
State and Navy Departments Excited
Over Events in Hawaii.
Washington, Jan. 28. —The newe that
Queen Lilioukalina has been overthrown
came to the United States government
with an emphasis that precluded any
doubt as to its authenticity. An official
dispatch to Secretary John W. Foster,
received this morning, brought the
startling intelligence. He immediately
sent the information to President Har
rison and Mott Smith, the representa
tive in Washington of Queen Liliouka
lini. Mott Smith, however, had already
been informed, and hurried to the etate
department with a dispatch from Thurs
ton, leader of the commission sent to
negotiate the annexation of Hawaii to
tbe United States. Secretary Coater
sent the news to the office of the secre
tary of the navy with the request for an
immediate iuttrview with Secretary
Tracy. Tracy had not reached the de
partment at the time, but Assistant
Secretarp Soley, recognizing the import
an"e of the information, went at once to
see Secretary Foster.
FEW AVAILABLE VESSELS.
They bad a consultation with refer
ence to the naval strength of tbe United
Stateß in Hawaiian waters, and Soley
informed Foster that the only vessel
there waß the cruiser Boston, now at
Honolulu. No other vessels, he said,
were in the vicinity. Foster thought it
would be well to have better naval rep
resentation at Honolulu, and Soley went
back to the navy department to ascer
tain what vessels were available for ser
vice in this connection. Secretary Tracy
arrived soon alter Soley returned, and,
upon hearing the news, went over to
It will take at least 10 days for one of
our naval vessels to join the Boston at
Honolulu. It is probable tbe new coast
defense vessel, Monterey, will be cent.
This vessel ie completed, with the ex
ception of having her turret armor in
place, and likely she will sail at once
from Han Francisco, to support the Bos
ton. Tbe interior lining of the iron to
which the armor ia riveted has been
placed in her turrets, and her stores are
all on board.
NO DISFLY OF FORCE NEEDED.
After an interview witb Secretary
Foster, Mott Smith *3jld a reporter he
thought the new government could be
maintained without the display of force
by tbe United States, He believed, he
said, the people themselves would regu
late matt, re, and that there would be no
'trouble. Smith bad believed a revolu
tion inevitable, but thought it would not
come co soon.
The interview between Secretary of
State Foster and Dr. Smith continued
for Borne time. At the close Secretary
Foßter went over to the White House
and had a conference with President
While, of course, no statement of the
policy to be pursued by the United
States in the matter will be made, at
least until after the arrival of the com
missioners from Hawaii, it may be said
that the visit of the Hawaiians will
hardly be successful if the purport
thereof has been correctly slated. Aside
from the innovation upon the policy ot
the government since its organization,
which annexation would be, the inter
eats of other countries in the S&ndwi.th
islands are too large to permit on the
part of the governments of those nations
acquiescence in such annexation. It
would involve consequences the United
States would not care, and which its
long settled policy forbida it, to assume.
THE SENATE DISCUSSES THE MATTER.
In executive session today the senate
discussed the revolution generally. The
speeches seemed to favor annexation or
the establiehment of a protectorate. In
opposition to these views it was asserted
that the debt ni Hawaii amounted to
more than $3,000,000, which was suffi
cient cause for this government to halt
before assuming the load. It was also
stated by other senators that when we
secured our coaling station at the Pearl
river, years ago, there was an agreement
under which England, Germany and
the United States and the other great
powers agreed to keep their hands off
and permit Hawaii to run her own af
fairs. In controverting this statement
it was claimed that while there might
have been a tacit understanding in
that direction it was not such a con
tract between powers as would pre
clude tbe United States, in tbe event
of a request from the government
of Hawaii, from exercising the
power of annexation, if in
deed there has ever been any
understanding on the subject. In sup
port of the presumption that there is no
agreement, it waa shown that England
had been for a year or co quietly, but
industriously, making inroads in tbe
islands and creating a feeling among
the people of that country which was
harmful and extremely prejudicial to
the interests of the United States and
her citizens who had invested their
money in enterprises that were devel
oping the islands and increasing their
trade and commerce.
FEELING IN THE HOUSE.
In the house of representatives there
was strong feeling expressed by the
leading Democrats against annexation.
At the same time there was an equally
unanimous opinion that no other na
tion should be permitted to step in and
control the destinies of the islands. It
was said by several congressmen that
the course Hawaii is adopting in seek
ing annexation ie practically the same
as that taken by Texas when it became
a part of tbe United States.
NAVAL OFFICERS ENTHUSIASTIC.
The naval officers are enthusiastic
over the news from Hawaii. One officer,
who has an intimate acquaintance with
Stevens, our minister to Hawaii, said he
was present when Stevens presented his
credentials to the government formed
on the accession of tbe queen to the
throne. Stevens read to the queen an
address in which he virtually outlined
her policy. The queen did not relish
the euggestiona of Stevens, and became
"If she had adhered to what he said,"
remarked the officer, "she would be on
tha throne today."
In reference to annexation, another
officer said: "If the United States pos
sessed Hawaii we could make it the
Gibraltar of the Pacific."
No Orders to British Ships.
Victoria, B. C, Jan. 28 —As far as
known no orders have been received
here relative to the movements of Brit
ish wmrehips on account of today's news
from Honolulu. The Warspite is on her

New York, Jan. 28.—Referring to the
visit of Cardinal Gibbons to the home
of Mr. Blame, the Sun's Baltimore cor
respondent says: A priest to whom
Cardinal Gibbons related the story of
hia visit to the Blame residence in
Washington, last month, is authority
for the statement that it was at Blame's
solicitation that the cardinal called.
Here is the story as related by the car
dinal himself to tbe priest:
"When I went to the house I met
Mrs. Walter Damroech, Blame's daugh
ter, who seemed very averse to my see
ing her father. I was finally ushered
into the sick man's bedroom and found
him lying almost in a state of coma.
Mrs. Damrosch aroused him somewhat
and said: 'Father, father, here is Car
dinal Gibbons; yon wished to see him.'
"Blame indicated that he understood
her, but did not open hia eyes or at
tempt to speak. Mrs. Damrosch then
spoke to him again:
'"Father, here is the cardinal; did
yon want to endow a church ?'
"Blame shook his head in the nega
" 'Do you want to give anything to
the poor?' Mre. Damrosch asked.
"Again the dying man shook bis
This, according to the priest, was the
full extent of the conversation. Mre.
Damrosch did not inquire whether her
fathsr wished to see the cardinal on
spiritual subjects, and seemed relieved
when the cardinal departed without
broaching such a conversation.

Roofs of Some of the World's Fair
Buildings Caved In.
Chicago, Jan. 28.—The great banks of
snow that haye been resting on the roof
of the manufacturers' building at the
world's fair had their tremendous
weight augmented last night and today
by a heavy downpour of sleet and rain
and tbe weight proved too much thia
afternoon for certain parts of the struc
ture. Tbe glass work and light iion
work in the east annex, or nave, was
caved in for a space of about l(i by 500
feet. The great trusses that span the
central arch of the building and
those that support the naves are still in
tact, however, and the officials of the
fair say they would stand the weight of
all the enow that could be dropped on
them. Some of the glass work in the
roof of machinery hall also gave way.

wildly exaggerated, the damage being
placed as high as $100,000, and it being
also stated that the agricultural and

A Word to tbe People.
Dr. De Monco and associates are permanently
located in Loa Angeles Therefore the people
need have no fear or hesitancy in placing their
case in the hands of these specialists. This re
markably low offer of $5 a month for all dis
eases, until February Ist, Is bona fide in every
respect an means just whU it says, nothing
less. It Is not nt all like ihe offer made by ir
responsible, faking itenner&nte, who possess
neither skill, education or honesty of purpose.
Dr. De Monco and associates are graduates of
reputable colleges, and are not ashamed to
mention the names of the same. Neither do
they hesitate to have their own names app'nar
in print accompanying the methods they
adopt. They never advertise free treatment
and then charge for medicines, as scores of peo
ple will testify who availed themselves of their
two weeks free treatment, nor do they falsely
represent anything in any manner whatsoever.
They state plainly whit they mean in their
advertisement, and fulfill all they promise.
Medical fakirs. Uenuerant scamps, quacks
and alledged staff* wiil do well to give Los An
geles a wide benh, as their dishonest methods
will certainly be exposed for public good. If
this is not sufficiently convincing more will
follow, and then lot the people choose.
