ANOTHER
PREPARING FOR
SILVER SIEGE.
THE FIGHT TO BE RENEWED AGAIN,
The Sllter Champion nt Work mi n Kill
Which lln Will Introduce im Minn
as Concress Meats Clnlnis the
rtrnral uf the Mirriu.in Act
lias Nut Kestorod Confi
dence maud's Ylent.
Washington, Nov. 21. The indlea
tlons are that the free coinage fight
will be renewed at the opening' of the
regular session. The free coinngo
men hold that tho repeal of tho silver
purchase law has not restored com
mercial prosperity, that the position
of tho silver men in urging free co'ii
age at the late session lias been vindi
cated and that now the Democratic
party in congress should devoto itself
to redeeming the remaining' pledges
of tho last Democratic natin.ial con
vention on the subject of silver and
financial legislation.
With this object in view, Chairman
Itiand of the committee on coinage,
weights and measures is preparing a
bill, which ho. us the leader of the.
free coinage men, will introduce at
tho opening of the session. It is fur
ther declared by htm to be his inten
tion to afford no loophole of escape
for those Democratic congressmen
who have talked for free colnago to
their constituents at home, but voted
against it on plausible pretexts, Alien
the matter came up for cons dera Ion
in the house. He ho.ds that there is
a clear majority for free coinage in
ine house, u me prtvnie declarations
of tho members to hi during the ex
tra session arc to be rode I upon, and
he purposes now to bring these gen
tlemen to the crucial test.
Tho measure which Mr. Itiand will
introduce is substantially a re-enactment
of the law of January 18, 1337.
It Is tho belief of the silver men that
this will command greater strength
and alTord less opportunity for evas
ion than auy other measure which
could possibly bo presented. The act
of 1837 was simple and brief. It pro
vided for silver dollars of 412J grains
and declared that "the dollars, half
dollars, quarter dollars, dimes and
half dimes sha 1 bo legal tenders ac
cording to their nominal value for any
sums whatever."
'We expect to undertake to pass a
freo coinage bill before congress ad
journs." continued Chairman Itlaud,
decisively. "What success we will
have Is very uncertain. My position
Is that we should repeal now all of tho
riherman laws on silver and have tho
law of 18.S7 ro-cnactcd and thus put
silver back to where it was before' ho
put his hand on it. Slnco we have
repealed one of his luws, lot us repeal
ullof them. I think that a majority of
the committee on coinage, weights
und measures will favor such a bill as
I am preparing. I think tho, luto
election wjll stimulate soino of them
to a balicf of tho wisdom of such a
policy. Ttio last election seemed to
l)u a general 'want of confidence' in
the Democratic party. Tho result of
the late election does not look, either,
as though tho people had much confi
dence that the repeal of tho Sherman
Jaw would help them. My purposo
ia to introduce such a bill, have it
promptly aotod upon by tho coin
mlttco as I have no doubt it will
lie, and have it reported back to
the house. I urn willing to wait thou
a reasonable time for tho discussion
and passage of a tariff bill beforo
pressing tho free coinage measure.
We will not embarass them and will
,'lvo no ono any excuse for evading
tho Issue. I think our peoplo ought
to go to work and pass a good tariff
bill at an early dav; and after that is
done, I purpose to see if wo cannot
have some financial legislation. For
my part I am a frpu trader and do not
belong to the incidental, protectionists
or to any other class of protectionists.
Of course, if they put wool on the fieo
list. J shall expect and insist on a very
jieavy cut in wool on the freo list un
Jo.su we gat a compensating reduction
in manufactured woolen goods."

LOUNT'S REPORT.
GIVEN OUT FOR PUBLICATION
BY SECRETARY GRESHAM.
SEVERE ARRAIGNMENT OF STEYENS.
ho Kx-Mliilstsr Atone Held Iteipousluto
for tho Hawaiian Revolution Mr.
Stevens Ilottjr Dauouum Illonnt
nnd Wilt Anmer Him Kx
President Harrison lie-
fuses to Talk About It.
Wasmxotox, Nov. 21. Secretary
liresham yesterday tnado public all
tho correspondence between the secre
tary of stato and James It. ltlount,
commissioner and, later, minister to
the Hawaiian islands. Mr. Uresham,
in giving this voluminous printed mat
ter to tho press, explained that It in
cluded everything connected with Mr.
mount's mission to Hawaii with tho
exception of home statistical tables
relating to the islands. Tho matter
cons sts of three parts, tho first bo
ginning with a copy of tho instruc
tions given Mr. ltlount on March 11,
1S0H. prior to his departure from
Washington for Honolulu, and tho
last part ending with u brief letter
under date of July, 31, 1803. in which
he takes his conge as follows:
"The condition of parties in tho
island", is one of quiescence. Tho ac
tion of the United States is awaited
by all as a matter of necessity. This
condition, it can be assumed, will re
main until tho proposition to annex is
accepted or rejected In the latter
contingency no sudden movement is
likely to occur. The piesent govern
meut ciin on.y rest on a basis of mili
tary force, possessed of most of the
arms in the islands, with u small
population to draw from to strengthen
it. ritimately it will fall without
full. It may preserve its existence
for u year or two, but no longer,"
Then he adds that lie has done his
duty us well as he could, "considering
I was surrounded by persons inter
ested in misleading," and his private
affairs necessitated his return home
Secretary llresham's letter of in
structions to Mr. ltlount, dated March
11, dcllue clearly how far, In the opin
ion of the president, the use of armed
force is J er.nisslblo by the I'nited
States to pull down or bet up govern
ments. Mr. (ircsham says:
"In the judgment of the president
your authority, as well as that of the
commander of the naval forces in Ha
waiian waters, should be, and Is lim
ited in the use of physical force to
such measures as are necessary to pro
tect the persons an I property of our
citizens; and while abstaining from
any manner of Interference with the
domestic couccrns of the islands, you
should indicate your willingness to in
tervene witli your friendly ollices in
the interest of a peaceable settlement
of troubles within the limit of sound
discretion.
"Should It be necessary to land an
armed force upon Hawa ian territory
on occasions of popular disturbance,
when the authority may be unable to
give adequate protection to the lifo
and property to the citizens of the
I'nited States tho assent of such an-
-thoritv should at first bo obtained, if
It can be done without piejudice to
the interests involved.
"Your power in this regard should
not, however, be claimed to the ex
clusion of similar measures by the rep
resentatives of other powers for tho
lives and property of their citizens or
subjects resident in tho islands.
"Wlille the ".'nlted States claim no
right to interfere in the present or
domestic affairs, or in the internation
al conllicts of tho Hawaiian islands
otherwise than is herein stated, or for
tho purposo of malnta ning any treaty
or other sites which they possess, this
f government will adhere to its con
sistent and established policy In rela
tion to them, and it will not acquiesce
iu diplomatic interference by other
powers."
Mr. ltlount says he called on the
cx-queeu and informed her that no
person was authorized by President
Cleveland or himself lo plucc the gov
ernment of the Cnited States in the
attitude of desiring an adjustment be
tween herself and the provisional
govemmenL Tho queen replied that
she did not intend to enter into any
negotiations until the Washington
government had taken action on Mr.
Illount's report.
On May 4 Mr. Hlount wroto: "At
tills time the indications aro unmis
takable that a lurgo majority of the
peoplo of the islands arc utterly op
posed to annexation."
In the third part of tho correspon
dence is printed a statement of Mr,
Volney V. Ashford, dated May 8, in
which hcsavH ho has put in w'riting
certain information in regard to
Hawaiian affairs at Mr. Illount's re
quest. This statement refers to Queen
I.tliuoknlanl as "A reigning sovcreigu
who has at least tried to supplant her
brother, even at tho expense, If neces
sary, of walking over his strangled
corpse, to tho throne by a woman
notoriously loaded with the grossest
soclul vices such as had contributed
so largely to the late king's downfall
In 1887, but still strongly upheld by
tho majority of the native people, who
believe her professions and promises
to restore them to an equal fruncalsc."
In another part of his extraordinary
communication Mr. Ashford says:
'Wilson's 'null' on thequeen consisted
iu tho fact that for many years he has
been her favorite paramour (she lias
several). The queen had a private
gateway out through tho palace wall
immediately contiguous to her apart
ments in tho bungalow, that ho might
alone enter by u near and more con
venient woy a scandal at which even
the most obtuse of the native people
drew tho line The pair openly
lived together in the queen's cottage
at Waiklkl, a suburb of Honolulu,
during and succeeding the 'sandbag'
episode at the palace, just preceding
the descent upon tho league. This
placo was formerly an assignation
house, built by Tonquln und openly
used for that purpose, under the per
sonal charge of her business mana
ger, formerly her native coachman.
All these und many other equally
scandalous acts uro matters of notor
iety at the canltal, nnd hove been
itlrcd and commented upon by tho
native press of Honolulu; but the
ringHsh press were either gagged by
the palace party or kept silent to
avoid the effects of the scandal
abroad."
These statements aro dlncrcdited by
Mr. Hlount.
Mr. Illount's conclusions of fact
are embodied In his report to Secretary
Ureshain, dated July 17. It Is iv very
long document, filling thirty-seven
large printed pages, and indicates
very clearly that he understood that
ho was to confine himself to a plain
statement of the facts, for nowhoro
does he make tho slightest suggestion
or recommendation.
The Incident which created such a
stir, of hauling clown the American
Hag, Mr. Hlount describes as follows:
"My instructions directed mo to
make inquiries which, in the interest
of candor aud truth, could not bo
done when tho minds of thousands of
Hawaiian citizens were, fml of uncer
tainty as to what the presence of
American troops, tho Anierlcnu tl.ig
und tho American protectorate im
plied. It seemed necessary that these
Intluences must be withdrawn before
those inquiries could bo prosecuted in a
manner belittlng the dignity nnd
power of tho Tnlted States. Inspired
with such feelings, and confident no
disorder would ensue, I direeted the
roinov.il of the flag of the rutted
States from tho government building
and the return of the American iroops
to their vessels Tills was accom
plished without any demonstration of
Joy or grief on the pari of the popu
lace. "The afternoon before, in an inter
view with President Dole, m response
t-i my Inquiry, he said that the pro
visional government was now nblo to
preserve order, although it could not
have done so for several weeks after
the proclamation establishing it "
Mr. ltiount tells of the various ef
forts made to secure a revision of tlio
constitution of 1877 und then brings
his narrative down to the propagation
of the legislature in 1802, the an
nouncement of the queen s purpose to
proctiim a now constitution und the
refusal of two of her ministers to sign
it. He tells the story o( tho revolu
tion which followed, and comments
upon tho failure of tho re vol tors to
inform tho mass meeting on the Kith
of thai, purpose, which ho attributes
to fear of tho queen. He quotes the
application of January 10 to Minister
Stevens for protection aud says:
"Tlio response to that call dos not
appear in tho illes and the records of
the American legation. It therefore
can not speak for itself. Tho request
of the committee of safety was, How
ever, consented to, nnd troops were
landed. A meeting of the committ e,
held that night at tho house of Henry
Waterhouse, next door lo Minister
Stevens' house, determined on tin de
thronement of the quin and her otll
ccrs. At this meeting ic was assented
lo by all that Mr. Stevens had agreed
with the committee of safety thai iu
tlu! event it occupied the govern mo lit
building and proclaimed a provisional
government ho would recognize it us
a de facto government.
Then Mr Hlount tolls of the respec
tive locations of the queen's force and
of Cuptaln Willz's troops und says:
"lliey wero doubtless so located to
suggest to the queen aud her counsel
lors tltat thoy were in co-operation
with the insurrectionary movement,
aim would, when the emergency
arose, manifest it by active support. '
It did doubtless suggest to tin men
who read tho proclamation that they
were having the suppoit of the
American minister nnd naval com
minder and were safe from pergonal
harm.
Mr. Hlount says: "The leadors of
the revolutionary movement would
not have undertaken it but for Mr.
Stevens' i romiso to protect them
against any danger from the govern
ment. Hut for this their mass meet
ing would not have been held Hut
for this no request to laud the troops
would have been made. Had tho
troops not been lauded, no measures
for tho organization of a new govern
ment would liave been taken The
American minister and the i evolution
ary leaders hud determined on annex
atioo to tho United States, aud had
agreed on the part each was to act to
the very end."
In concluding this report Mr. Hlount
says: "That it deep wrong has been
done the queen anil the native race
by American ofllelals pervades the na
tive mind, and that of the queen, us
well as a hope for redress from the
I'nited Slates, there can be no doubt.
Iudecd, who could have supposed that
tho circumstances surrounding her
could have been foreseen and sanc
tioned deliberately by tho president
of tlio United States? Her uniform
conduct and tho prevailing statement
among the natives point to her belief
as well us theirs that tho spirit of
Justice on the part of the president
would restore her crown."
That is the only thing in tho nature
of a recommendation made.
Tho commissioner closes with a de
scription of the industries of tho
islands, statistics, comparisons of the
races, changes in the conditions of tho
natives, and information tending to
bhow that they havo been badly
treated.
