Berlin, Dec. 9.—The week's debate in
tbe reichstag added almost nothing new
to the arguments for or against Herr
Miquel's financial measures. In the
general debate Miquel had to make a
hard stand, inasmuch as only * decade
ago, as burgomaster of Frankfort, he
headed a petition against the taxation of
business on tbe exchange. There is
growing agitation against the proposed
tobacco duties, and this imperils the
taxation programme scarcely lass than
the unpopularity of the proposed
wine duties. It is safe to say
that 'ho oniy tax that will
be adopted intact is the bourse tax,
yielding 37,000.000 marks yearly. The
remainder of the 50,000,000 absolutely
required in order to meet the army ex
penses, will have to be made up by a
modified increase in duties ou tobacco
and the higher-priced wines.
The coming week will be occupied by
the second and third readings of the
commercial treaties; then the German
and Russian delegates will resume ne
gotiations, with much improved pros
pects of success, since it iB seen that
the reichßtag iB likely to adopt the pro
posed commercial treaty with Russia,
and it is now expected that the end of
January may see the treaty arranged.
RETURN OF THE JESUITS,
The emperor has congratulated the
Catholic Prince Feurstenburg upon his
vote against the repeal of the Jesuit

quest from Breelau appealing to them to
protect the interests of the Proteßtants

of the bill in the reichsiag, and dwelling

Their Civil Service Association Gone

Washington, Dec. 9. —The civil service
association organization of the clerks in
the treasury department has gone out
of existence. Its object was to extend
the civil service as much as possible.
While the new administration showed
no active opposition to the scheme, it is
Raid the officials, soon after Secretary
Carlisle came into power, made it plain
that they wished no such organization
to exist. The association sent a peti

no attention to it.

MURDER WILL OUT.
A Father and Bon ArreMtfd for Killing
a rlwede N.sr Hanford.
Hanford, Cal., Dec. 9.—On Wednes
day last the body of a man who hud
been shot in the head was found on the
bank of Cross creek. Beside the body,
which bad pitched forward partly into
the water, lay a shotgun with one of btie
barrels empty. A horse almost starved
was found tethered near, and a wagon
containing a hunter's outfit also stood
near by. The man was unknown, and
was at first supposed to be a hunter who
had accidentally shot himseli. Dev. l
opments at tbe inquest today, however,
led to the arrest ol two men for murder.
The dead man proved to be John
Peterson, a Swede ,who leftSelma Mon
day last with George Blair, a y r
man, for a three weeks' hunt near lu
lare iake. They arrived at Hanford
Monday night and put up at Rogers'
livery stable. Blair went to bed and
Peterson went out and began! drinking.
Peterson went back to the Btable near
midnight, got Blair and they resumed
.their journey. Next morning they ie
turned to town and searched the livery
stable for money Peterson claimed to
have lost. They did not find it. Then
they made tome purchases, Peterson
displaying abont $400 in gold. As the
men were going away a stranger came
up and engaged Peterson in conversa
Nothing more was seen of either ol
the men until Tuesday night, when
Blair arrived in Hanford and secured
lodging at the Western hotel. Wednes
day evening Blair boarded a train ior
Selma. Before goiug he bought cloth
i-ig and seemed to be flush with money.
At the ceroner's instigation Blair waa
arrested in Sclma yesterday, ills father,
Asher Blair, accompanied him and the
arresting officer to Hanford.
At the inquest Blair said he got out
of the buggy and left Peterson, when a
stranger came up and began talking
Swedish, and that when he walked back
to the place half an hour later the bug
gy was gone. He said he remained in
Hanlord all night Tuesday and until
Wednesday evening, waiting for Peter
son to return. His statements were so
conflicting, however, that the jury ren
dered a verdict charging him with mur
der, and charging his fattier as an ac
cessory, though tnere ia little evidence
implicating the latter. A man answer
ing Blair's description waa seen in the
buggy with Peterson Tuesday afternoon
near the scene of death, and the jury
argued that Blair could have committed
the crime and returned to town Tuesday
night. The Blairs are woodchoppero.

San Bernardino, Dec. 9. —Ou petition

supei ior court has appointed F. P. Morri
son receiver for the Bear Valley Irrigation
company. Tbe company has a capital
stock of $4,000,000, and until recently
paid dividends of 15 per cent on that
amount. Tbe company supplies a large
part of San Bernardino county with
water, but has become financially em

and a receiver was appointed toeee that

They Will Contlune.
New York, Dec. 9. —Some doubt is
expressed as to wnetber any gold will
be shipped abroad next Tuesday, owing
to tbe fact that at the current rate of ex
change it is difficult to see any profit in
exchange transactions. Gold exports
are not regarded with any trepidation
in view of the fact that local banks hold
$104,000,000 in gold specie, of which
$50,000,000 is in coin. It is held that
$20,000,000 might be taken from the
banks without the drain being felt, and
it is believed they would be willing to
furnish that amount before compelling
recourse to tbe sub-treasury. The bud
treaßury shipped yesterday, in notes of
small denominations, $100,000 each to

Presß was. received today per the bark

Honolulu, 11. 1., Nov. 22, 1893.
Since advices by the schooner Tran

ex-queen has applied to the provi

granted hor request, and a detail of cix

does not anticipate any present politi

from on the "contingency" mentioned
by Senator Willis, Even then the
attorney-general said trouble was not
anticipated, unless tbe determination
had been reached to restore the ex
queen, which could not, be bnlieved.
As to the course thug far pursued by
Minister Willis, the attorney-general
declined to express an opinion, beyond
saying he thought perhaps the Ameri

in some of his remarks concerning dip
THE BX QUEEN'S NERVOUSNESS.
The Associated Press learned yester
day directly from Washington place that
the ex-queen fully understands her
danger in case the United States should
reßtore her to power, and that she de
clared to Minister Willis during her visit
to Snow cottage, that ehe would have to
decline restoration unless it was granted
under the armed protection of the

THE POLITICAL TENSION.
The political strain comities to be
very great. The provisional government
undoubtedly commands tbe situation,
and the marshal has matters bo arranged
that it would be impoasible for an at
tack to be made upon tbe executive
building with half an hour's notice to the
minister willis' position.
The position of Minister Willis still
calls forth criticism. One prominent
gentleman reports him as Baying that
when he got ready to act as an execu
tive officer of the United States there
would be but two persons in Hawaii
notified, viz., tbe head of the pro
visional government and the head of the
former government. The state of vacil
lation he has shown regarding hie van
oub utterances to local newspaper men
has also caused comment. A prominent
newspaper editor of Honolulu is author
ity for tbe statement that Minister Wil
lis lately declared he did not intend to
have anything more to do with newspa
pers and reporters because they could
not tell the truth. These charges do not
refer in any way to the Associated
Press, to whom the American minister
has on every occasion been courteous
PRINCESS KAIULANI's CHANCES.
Tbe theory of restoration has caused
coneiderable anxiety and investigation
in government circles, as such a denoue
ment would caußeimmediate trouble. It
iB learned, after careful inquiry, thatone
line of official investigation has devel
oped the fact that the ex-queen shortly
expectß the return of ex-I'rincese Kaiu
lani to Honolulu from England. It la
also thought Theodore II Davies comes
aa her political agent to effect a compro
mise in case the United States finds it
impracticable or impossible to restore
the ex-queen, should such be the intent.
The theory ia advanced that should
Cleveland be determined upon the res
toration of the monarchy, that the ex
princeßa will be present to represent the
former government in caee the ex queen
is unavailable. It is also Baid that in
such an event application will be made
by the ex-queen ior a life pension from
the United States. It is said Kaiuiani
would appeal to Great Britain in case of
trouble it ahe securea the throne.
BELIEF FOR PRESIDENT DOLE.
The Asaociated Press is able to state
that a bill separating the officeß of pres
ident of the provisional government and
minister of foreign affairs will be pas ed
within a week, and that Hon. F. M.
Hatch, a prominent American lawyer
and member ot the advisory council,
will be appoin ed aa minieter of foreign

EDITOR SMITH'S TROUBLES.

rrrwat excitement, the Royalists saying
that they wf-uld revolt before they
would allow Liliuokalani to be brought
into court Mr. Smith was arrSßted a
eeconl timo, but in hie next issue re
turned a bolter shot than that before.
Wilson then threatened, in the presence
ol the marshal, to assinate the editor,
whereupon the later armed himself and
took occasion to pass Wilson frequently
in the street. There was n bloodshed.
In the meantime the annexation party
raised a larae sum for the editor's de
fense, and eminert counsel ofiered their
services to him, as did leading Royalist
attorneys to Wilson. The third day of
the fight the Star denounced Wilson,
both editorially and locally, and
the editor was rearrested. In
each rase, except one when $100
bait was allowed, he waa per
mitted to on Ina own recognizance.
Yesterday, as a result of the continued
exposures in the Star, Smith waa ar

upon legislative records and Wilson's
own cooisbsioiib. The Star will publish
its first statement this afternoon after
the Irwin Bails, which wnl probably
cause his fresh arrest tomorrow. The
Star announces that it Will fight the
matter to a finish. Aa Wilson's career
is notorious here it is not believed that
he intends to bring the euits into court,
unless in the event of the restoration of
the ex queen all the official records and

the natives greatly excited.
Later, 1 p. m.—The natives have dis
covered the police stationed around
Washington place and ex
citement prevails among them, as the
fact that the ex-queen has applied to
the provisional government lor pro
tection haa not yet leaked out, and the
natives surmise that the government
haa the ex-queen under surveillance.
Since the arrival of the British cruiser
Champion a rumor has been set afloat
from native sources that in caße of the
I i«»f,oratvm ot the ex-qtieen, or ox-prin
i can. whichever it may be, she will apply
Ito Great Britain for the future protec
tion of the monarchy. At first tbe
report was treated as unimportant, but
inquiry shows that prominent Royalist
politicians and leaders claim to be di
rectly informed that such will be the
future policy of the monarchy if the
United States can be prevailed upon to
adopt the policy of restoration.
He Thinks Cleveland Will Deal Justly
London, Dec. 9. —Neither the foreign
office nor the Hawaiian representative
have any advices concerning Hawaii,
from Auckland. The Asaociated Press
showed Ambaeaaeor, Bayard its advicea
from Auckland. After reading it he
said: "President Cleveland will deal
with the weak Hawaiiana iv tbe moßt
magnan.mous manner, and will not
force on them a government which they
han not n full chance to dißcuas."
Regarding tbe dispatches published
yesterday indicating that Cleveland had
cent instructions to Hawaii reversing
his policy theru. Bayard said-. "There
can be no reversal of a policy based
simply on justice and magnanimity.
Cleveland's policy is one of non-inter
ference. Ke had no intention of enter
ing the islands and deposing the govern
ment. The policy of the United States
toward Hawaii is not a selfish one. On
the contrary, Cleveland's inten
tion is that no advantage shall be
taken of the weakness of the
queen's party, and that the queen
ahall have a full and fair chance to get
on her feet, if possible. The Hawaiian
native autonomy has been so weakened
by late events that I hardly know
whether the Hawaiians can avail them
selves of the offer of the president to
restore the queen to the throne."
The Asaociated Press representative
in Liverpool learns that T. H. Davieß,
guardian of Princess Kaiulani, ia now
in Hawaii and the princeaa on the con
tinent. The latest news from Daviea
confirms the Associated Press advicea

said Thurston, "and the announcement
that force will be necessary to aeep the
queen on the throno should she be re
atored is correct."
Minister Thurston added that he
might eventually go to Honolulu, but
his intentions now were to send a dis

that Editor Castle, who accompanied

President Dopny and Other Deputies
Among the Injured—The Perpe
trator In Custody—Wild
By the Associated Press.
Paris, Dec 9.—While the chamber ot
deputies was in session this afternoon a
bomb was thrown from one of the gal
leries, and after a double report, ex
ploded amidst the lawmakers. A scene
of terrible excitement followed. The
crowds in the galleries were seized with
panic, and through the blinding smoks
and dust fought fiercely to escape from
the building. The police, however,
with great promptness, had closed every
exit to the street and instituted at ones
a most searching investigation for tbe
criminals, both in tbe galleries and on
the floor of the chamber. Many per
sons, including women, were hart more
or less seriously, bat so far aa known
only one was fatally wounded.
DETAILS OF THE OCTRAOB.
The explosion occurred this afternoon
when the chamber was in session, but
as the proceedings were very uninterest
ing, the galleries were not crowded.
Suddenly from the right gallery, some
Bort of a bomb was thrown, exploding
in the midst of the deputies, causing a ■
scene of tbe greatest confusion and
panic. It wbb impossible to get exact
details at first, as tbe police at once
closed all the doors to the chamber and
refused to allow any one to pass in or
out until an investigation was concluded.
The utmost excitement prevails th rough
It was 4p. m. when the bomb was
thrown. Ladies fled shrieking from the
gallery. Burton Traibin, a newspaper
man. was badly wounded in the bead.
It ia said the bomb was filled with
slugs which were thrown in all di
rections, some Koing into the galleries.
One of the injured ia said to be the man
who threw the bomb.
PRESIDENT DUPljr's COOLNESS.
President Dupuy is said to have be
haved with the utmost coolness, doing
much to allay the panic.
When quiet was pome what restored
it was discovered that nobody was
killed. Dupuy called the chamber to
order. Part of the deputies obeyed the
summons. Dupuy rose and said, aa
calmly aa if nothing had happened:
"Such attempts should not disconcert
tbe chamber. 1 invite you to continue
your discussions with calmness. When
the order of the day has been dealt
with, the proper officials will do their
duty." [Prolonged cheerß.]
DEPUTY LE MAIRE WOUNDED.
The deputy seriously wounded ia not
Le Myre de Vilera, but the Socialist
deputy Abbe le Maire, who ia severely
wounded in the neck.
After the chamber was called together,
in the midst of indescribable commo
tion, the verification of deputies waa
resumed. Meantime the wounded depu
ties were removed to tbe ante-rooms
and attended by physicians. Deputy
Le Maire, though severely hart, will
probably recover. At least a score of
people in the tribunes and galleries
were wounded badly enough to require
medical aid. They suffered all aorta of
wounds, and the ante-rooms presented
a sanguinary appearance. Among tbe
wounded are a number of women.
WALLS SPLASHED WITH BLOOD.
The walls in many places in the neigh
borhood of tbe explosion are splashed
with blood. It is now believed the
man who threw the bomb escaped and
that he was wounded. The bomb ex
ploded aa it left hie band, which ac
counts for the number of wounded in
the galleriee. Had it fallen among the
deputies of the right, for whom it waa
doubtless intended, numbers of them
innst hare been killed. A number of
journalists were more or less wounded.
Scattered about the floor were many
pieceß of iron resembling Bait heads.
PREMIER PERIKR's PROMISE.
Soon alter the chamber was called to
order Premier Caaimir-Perier ascended
tbe tribune and congratulated the cham
ber on having adopted the advice of
Dupuy, adding: "The chamber has done
its duty and ttie government will do the
When the cheering had subsided,
Caaimir-Perier added: "And the gov
ernment will visit tbe attempt with the
most eevere penalties." [Prolonged
Dupuy associated himself with Oasi
niir-Perier'B words, and, amid renewed
cheering, the chamber adjourned.
The courageous president of the cham
ber, who was deeply moved by the man

ot his courage, retired from the chamber
as quickly as he could after adjourn
PROMPT POLICE ACTION.
The prelect of police, tbe procurator

they were notified of the outrage, and at
