A LETTER FROM HONOLULU
The Provisional Government i
in New Quarters. '
It Has Established Itself in the J
Royal Palace. i
Minister Blonnt Longs to-Return to i
Man* Spreofcel'a Claim Paid In Full—
The Oynamite Oonapiratura IH.cov

B»th» Aaiocinted Preaa.
Honolulu, Jnne 10. —(Via flan Fran- |
Cisco, June 18, per the steamer City of
l'ekin) —For the first time in the history
of the provisional government of the
Hawaiian islands the Hawaiian national
flag w floated over the palace on June
2d. The formal occupation of the palace
by the provisional government, and the
raising of the national emblem over it,
are regarded by the Annexationists,
generally, and by many of the natives,
as the final blow to tbe monarchy. The
building was formally dedicated to its
new uses on June stb, with little cere
mony, in which the troops and govern
ment officials participated.
CLA.CB SPRECKEI.S' CLAIM PAID.
On June 3d the government paid to
Claus Spreckels the $95,0000 wed to him,
and there is a feeling of relief among
the officials that the government is no
longer nnder obligations to him.
Sprockets denies that he was actuated
by a desire to embarrass the govern
ment by demanding the return of the
money ionned by him. He says it was
merely a business transaction ; tha debt
was overdue and he wanted hie money.
i J) LOP NT ANXIOUS TO COME HOME.
Minister Blount is anxious to return
home, and both the Royalists and An
nexationists would be glad to have the
question settled one way or the other.
The idea of a protectorate is still in favcr
with the Annexationists.
TUB A NTI-CONSPIRACY LAW.
The provisional governmant has
. passed a law giving the atterney-general i
I discretionary powers in admitting to bail
persons charged with murder, treason
or seditious offenses. Heretofore all
otlenses have been bailable, and this
new law ie considered to bo a further
precaution on toe part of the « ivern
irom too severely criticising the govern
A NBW CONSi'L-GKNBRAL.
C. W. Wilder, eon of Vioe-President
Wilder, has been appointed consul
gsneral at San Francisco to succeed F.
1 8. Pratt, removed.
June 6th Minister and Mrß. Blount
left for a short visit to Maui, and
though they will begoneonly until June
11th, rumors of impending trouble began
to arise before the steamer bearing the
peacemaker, as Mr Rlount is called, had
fairly gotten outside Honolaln harbor.
The Koyaliets claimed to have received
reliable information that the provisional
government had derided to deport the
ex-queen on the steamer City of Peking,
due from China June 7th. They pre
pared to resist any such attempt and
men were placed on guard at the ex
queen's residence to give to tbe deport
ers a warm reception. It is stated that
Parker requested the British minister to
move hie legation to the ex-queen's res
idence, thus placing Liluokalani under
the protection oi the British flag, but
♦ hat tbe minister refused Major Wode
house, however, says there is not a word
of truth in the story. The officers of
the provisional government say that
they have no intention of taking harsh
measures against the ex-ruler.
TUB DYNAMITE CONSPIRATORS.
The police claim that they have dis
covered the conspirators in the alleged
dynamite plot, and some arrests will be
m«do as soon as the evidence warrants.
Those implicated are said to be V. V.
Ashford, Samuel Nowline. Thomas
Walker, James Crick and J. F. Colbnrn.
Ashford is a well-known lawyer here:
Walker and Crick are Englishmen, and
Nowline and Colbnrn are prominent
THE GOVERNMENT'S TRUMP CARD.
The provisional government played its
t»nrap card on Jnne 9th by publishing
the text of a power of attorney given by
Lilnokala'ni to Paul Neumann, when n»
went to the United States to work
against annexation. The Annexa
tionists claim tbat the execu
tion of this power of attorney
destroys the chief argument of the
queen that ehe yielded to the superior
force of the Uuited States, as in it she
acknowledges that she made an uncon
ditional surrender to the provisional
government. They farther call atten
tion to the fact that she had no thought
of her people, but thought only of her
financial welfare, and that it was a plain
offer of sale on her part.
AN EDITOR ARRBBTBD.
W. Q. Smith, editor of the Hawaiian
Btar, has been arrested on the charge of
criminal libel, preferred by Claus
Spreckels. Ths Star had intimated that
Spreckels might be deported and his

THE BORDEN TRIAL.
Opinion (taenia to Be That Lizzie Will
Nbw Bedford, Mass., June IB. —The
work of preparation among counsel in the
Borden case waa going on all day. The
concensus of opinion la that Miss Borden
will be acquitted in short order or tbe
jury will disagree. In tbe former event,
it is understood, there will be no jubila
tion but she will retire quietly from the
scene of so much uupleassntness as
quirikly as possible. In the Utter event
there may come a new trial or a case of
nolle prosequi later on, she being al
lowed to (to on her own recognizance pro
vided counsel stands in the breach. The
arguments will probably take all day
Monday and tho charge will be given on
New York, June 18.—The World's
Baltimore special says: Mrs. Ramsey,
who keeps a boarding house, relates the
story that previous to the Borden mur
ders, a New England boy, who repre
sented himself as Felix Borden, an
adopted son of Lizzie Borden's uncle,
boarded with her. He did not pay his
board bill and left, saying he was gnu g
to bis home in Massachusetts to get
money to settle with. A few days af
ter he left the Borden murders were
committed. He retnrned to Baltimore,
and Mrs. Ramsev spoke about the mur
ders. He replied: - 'Oh, Lizzie did it."
His discription, it is said, tallies with
tbatgiven by witnesses wbo testified thoy
saw a strange young man at tbe gate of
the Borden house the morning of the
murder. Young Borden left Baltimore
last fall and bas not been heard of

they can secure a large number oi

the Richteristj and Clericals. They
depend upon the general alarm excited
by the Social Democratic victories to
drive the Clericals and Opposition Cler
! icals into the government camp in con
j stituenc.es where the contests are be
\ tween Conservatives or National Lib

expectations are realized, not only will
| the government open the reichstag with
Rlmost i.alf tbe members on its side, but
also will be enabled at ton final roll to
keep the Hociol Democrats down to a to
tal of 40 to 45 seats.
THE SOCIALIST SCARE.
That the ministerial expectations of a
general combination against the Social
ists are not entirely under ground, is
shown by the action of the clerical lead
ers. Toe Socialist scare has become so
general that toe leaders have sent out a
letter calculated' to solidify the Catholic
vote against the Social Democratic can
didates, ho in cases where such a
course will lead to the election of Con
servatives or National Liberals.
Speculators on the bourse take, a san

Russian stocks, which weakened Friday
were strong yesterday in con»»quence of
reporte thst tbo government would have
a sin il. majority at the opening of the
HEKiiERT Bismarck's victory.
Count Herbert Bismarck, who was
elected by the Agrarians in the Jerichow
district, received 11,669 to 68-18 cast for
Ferdinand Woellmer, Radical, who was
the last member for the district. Gloecke,
the Social Democratic candidate, re
ceived 4131 votes. Count Herbert's
majority over all is therefore 480.
