Before an Audience.
New York, Dec. 17.— Walter Damrosch
wielded a futile baton at the symphony
concert at Carnegie Hall te-niglit. A
large audience was present. When the

Damrosrh gave the sigual. and again not a

READS VERY NICELY.
Hawaii's Original Constitution
Documents Dug Up by a Professor,
Who Will Send Them to
New Tohk, Dee. 17.— Probably the only
copy of the original constitution of Ha
waii ie in possession of Professor W. H. B.
Tnomas of Philadelphia. Inasmuch as
some Hawaiian docutueuts seem to sustain
the post (ton taken by President Cleveland
in the Sandwich Islands controversy, Pro
fessor Th< mas is about to offer transcripts
ol the original to the United States Gov
ernment. The documents were printed
for the benefit of u>e natives nearly half a
century apo in the Hawaiian language and
afterward translated into English, but
copies never have been published in this
"The declaration of rights, both of the
people and their chiefs," as the Hawaiian
constitution is called, was originally drawn
up by a graduate of the seminary at I.a
haialuna. Thi* declaration was afterward
revised by the King and a council of three
chiefs. The constitution shows the mis
sionary training of the Hawaiian people,
and there certainly is no reason fnr the
objection that God is not recognized, for
the declaration starts off with a Scriptural
text, and is extremely pious and Biblical
throughout The portion calculated to
sustain President Cleveland in bis Ha
waiian policy is presumably that which
recites ibe royal line from the first to the
tnird Kamehameha, and then says:
"The kingdom Is permanently confined
to Kamehameha ITI and his heirs, and bis
heir shall be a person whom be nnd the
chiefs shall appoint during his life time,
but should there be no appointment then
the decision shall rest with the chiefs and
the House of Representatives. "
This constitution was signed October 8,
1840, at Honolulu, by King Khmehameha
111 and bis Prime Minister.

Fernando lobo, Minister of Justice and

THE CRUISER NICTHEROY.
Safe at Pernambuco, but Her Desti
nation Kept Secret.
New York, Dec. 17 —A correspondent
of the World cables from Pernainbuco:
The dynamite cruiser .Nietheroy arrived
here last Wednesday, but was not fi>r«
inally delivered to the Brazilian Govern
ment until yesterday. She Is ordered to
sail south next Tueslay, but her destina
tion is kept gp'-ret. Everything is quiet In
this part of Brazil.
The American sailors who shipped in
New York for a temporary crew to bring
the cruiser to a Brazilian port demanded
exorbitant wages for reshipment. It is
not likely that they will be reshipped.
The war9hip America, which met with an
accident on the way south, is at Martiniqul
to repair her damaged machinery.
A special to the Herald from Pernam
buco says there is already trouble with the
crew of the Nichtheroy, which arrived
Wednesday. Those who enlisted in New-
York demand very high pay for re-enliHt
menl for the service in the Brazilian navy,
although it was well understood before
sailing that they were expected to re
enlist for active service when a Brazilian
fort was reached. The representative of
Peixoto refuses to allow the demands of
the crew and will probably bMd a new
crew of Brazilians here. Tho Nichtheroy
will go to Bahia from here and thence to
PREPARING FOR BATTLE.
Large Bodies of Loyalists and In

New York, Dec. 17.— A special to the

Peixoto's cruiser Bahia, which has been
undergoing repairs in this port for some
time, has Uft the doct, and tbe Desterro
will soon tike her place here. She is to be
converted into a troopship and will be fur
nished with good guns.
The steamer Santos, which is being used
in the service of Minister Menteilo, Bra
zil's representative here, arrived to-day
with more ammunition fur Pe ixnto's forces.
The Government ot Rio Grande do Sul

Ail the jerked beef on the Rio markets
has been sold, and the supply of this food,
which is almost necessary to life in Brazil,
is now exhausted. The capture of Gov

in that engagement. Peixoto has revoked
Jni decree for tbe expulsion of foreigners
from the capital. Cobras Island has been
fortified by the revolutionists with sixty
guns and a garrison of 600 men.
PEIXOTO WOULD SELL
The Brazilian Central Railway and
Rio Water Works.
Lisbon, Dec. 17.— A gentleman who ar
rived on the last steamer from Brazil states
that a well-known Brazilian banker who
arrived in Europe a few weeks ago from
Rio is empowered by Peixoto to treat with
foreign capitalists for the sale of the Bra
zilian Central Railway and the Rio water
works. The price asked is £23.000.000.
AGAINST THE TREATY.
Spanish Merchants Protest Against
Concessions to Germany.
Madrid, Dec. 17.— A committee of Span
ish manufacturers has arrived here to
protest against the commercial treaty with
Germany. The committee intends to
represent to the Queen that the concessions
made Germany will ruin many trades
and injure Spanish interests generally.
The committee will point out the vast in
crease of German imports during the re|
cent years. «j
London", Dec. 17.— A dispatcn to th*
Post from Park says; The interruption of
the commercial relations between France
and Spain is probably owing to the fact
that Spnin under trie, new treaty concedes
to Germany a lower tariff than the so
called minimum whicti France enjoys in
return for giving Spain Absolute miuimum.
The Cabinet Council Saturday considered
the measure of applying a maximum to
Spain, if the latter persists in her refusal
to accord to France the same advantages
as she has conceded to Germany.

the papal chaplain, the Pope seated on v
throne listened to an address read by tbe

■aid : "Those seeding to revive the glories
of paganism and deprive Rome of the dia

hand of St. Peter will be lighting vainly
against the decrees of the Almighty.
The Pope was in excellent health and
spirits and showed no ci;ns of fatigue.
He was warmly greeted by the multitudes
of people upon entering and leaving Basil

OTHER CONGRESSIONAL AFFAIRS
Statesmen Prepared to Struggle With
the Question of the Admission
Washington*, Dec. 17.— The present In
tention of ihe leaders is to H'lpurn Con
gress next Thursday for a holiday recess
to January 4. The tariff will be reported
on Wednesday or Thursday, but the de
bate will not begin till after recess. To
morrow the debate over the appropriation
of 5 200. 000 for special peuslon examiners
will be resumed, limited by agreement to
an hour and a half on each side. The bill
will then pass. The New Mexico State
hood bill then corner up and is expected to
pass to-morrow or Tuesday if the Demo*
crats can maintain a quorum.
The President's Hawaiian messtge Is
likely to provoke a debate. It is stated
on the highest authority that the ires-age
will maintain the administration has done

Hawaiian monarchy and the situa ion
must now be dealt with by Congress. It
will show that the President aud Gresham

The programme in the Senate to-morrow
includes the reception of the Hawaiian
message and debate, which may occupy
the balance of the week. Should Horn
blower's nomination as Justice of the
Supreme Court be reported by the Judici
ary Committee to-mormw considerable
time may be spent in executive session, as
some opposition is certain. The Federal
elections bill, by stipulation, gues over till
after the holiday rcce-s.
The Senate Committee on Territories
will probably not take up the Statehood
bills from the House before|tbe holiday re
cess, at least not for final action. The
comiuitiee generally is favorable to the
bill*, but there is almost sure to be a disa
greement on minor points. There a ill be
comparatively little opposition among the
Republican members of the committee,
while ihe Democrats are solid in favor of
the cdmission of all Territories. It is
probable the bill for tip- admission of
Oklahoma will be attached to the other
bills. Tne Republicans may demand this,
believing there are better chances for Re
; üb! lean success in Ok'ahoma than in
other new States. There will be some op-
I'CMt on in the committee to New Mexico
on the ground of the character of tne ma
jority of the population. It is quite cer-
tain an effort will be revived to join Nevada
witb Utah, and it may prove a knotty
question in connection with Utah's admis
sion. I: is understood the President has
been considering the prospect that the ad
mission of four new States would seat
eight silver Senators, and fears are already
expressed that be may veto one or more of
Valuable Suggestions Made to the
Washington. Dec 17. — The House
Committee on Banking and Currency has
received a large number of replies to the
invitation for suggestions from business
men as to tbe wisest monetary legislation
to meet the preseut demands. Ex-Senator
Charles B. Farwell of Chicago writes: "Tbe
Government ought long ago to have gone
out of tbe currency business. It should
pay tbe floating debt at once by tbe issue
of long, low-rate bonds, to be used by the
national banks at face value, as tbe basis
of circulating notes."
The Clearing-house Association of Se
attle, through H. W. Wheeler, president of
the Commercial Bank, and J. L. Elliott,
president of the First National Bank of
Los Angeles, offer suggestions as to an
amendment of the national banking laws.
The Chamber of Commerce of San Fran
cisco aflirms the advantage of bimetallism
on a propi r differential basis in values of
silver and it M, and adopts the following
resolutions, which are transmitted to the
cow mi t tee:
"Resolved, This chamber respectfully
urges upon Congress the enactment of a
law calling in all paper circulation below
the denomination of $10, and that the coin
age of (old be restricted to coins of not
less than $10. as the most effective and
prompt methods of promoting tbe circula
tion of silver among our people. We also
recommend changing the national bank act
so it will permit a note circulation equal
to the par value of Government bonds,
hypothecated to secure such circulation."

accentuate the crisis and aggravate the
evils under which Italy is suffering. Italy,
he says, cannot escape the catastrophes
which menace her, and it may be that
Crispi will hasten the denouement.
The Pope is said to ask for but one thing,
viz., the welfare of Italy. He believes,
however, one essential condition to this
welfare is the reconciliation of the country
with the Papacy, b> cause that reconcilia
tion is the only thing which would enable
Italy to leave tbe triple alliance and adopt
a policy of neutrality and disarmament.
If Crispi wishes to follow such a line of
policy he will be able to obtain the sup
port of the Pope.
