THE ITALIO-AMKRICAN DIFFICULTY.
Baron Fava, the Italian Minister
at Washington, is reported by the
Paris Soleil, on his arrival in that
city, as much annoyed at the action
of the United States in regard to the
New Orleans affair. According to
that paper the Baron, while on his
way across the Atlantic, assured sev
eial of his fellow-passengers that the
Marquis Imperiali, Italian Charge
d'Affaires at Washington, would be
recalled. Italy, the Baron is said
to have added, would not have a di
plomatic representative at Washing
ton until the New Orleans affair is
A citizen of Rome informed a Lon
don correspondent that while he hat
ed and despised the Matia, he recog
nized that the vendetta was inevita
ble, and that the leaders in the
American tragedy would die by vio
lence sooner or later, though perhaps
not for two or three years. He said
that this was the chief reason in
Italy for punishing murder with im
prisonment instead of death, as a
vendetta had always followed the
The reciprocity convention be
tween Spain and the United States
provides that in return for the privi
lege of free entry into the United
States of Antilles sugars, molasses,
coffee and hides, and a reduction of
the duty on tea, America shall ob
tain exemption from duties on most
of her raw and manufactured pro
ducts and a reduction of the tariff
on cereals and flour.
Premier Canovas offered protract
ed resistance to the abolition of the
tariff on flour, owing to protests of
Spanish traders. Eventually the re
presentations that American recipro
city would be impossible without the
free admission of American cereals
induced Premier Canovas to assent
to such a reduction of the tariff as
will place American flour upon a
nearly equal footing with Spanish
flour. Spanish merchants believe
that the treaty will be ruinous to
them, and it is said the Government
would never have made the conces
sions it has, were it not for the fear
of civil war in Cuba if the treaty was

ENGLAND AND PORTUGAL.
England is aroused over the high
handed actions of Portugal in Africa.
A Boer expedition, with the consent
of Portugal, is to establish a repub
lic in either Mashonaland or Manica
land. This, if carried out, will affect
the Manica territory claimed by Eng
land. A short time ago the Portuguese
authorities at Beira detained the
mails destined for British colonists
in Mashonaland and refused to allow
them Wo be carried to their destina
tion. Several British colonists have
been imprisoned and most of the
British settlers have left Mashona
land on accouut of the arbitrary
action of the Portuguese.
Colonel Willougbby has reached
Delagoa Bay. lie reports that on
arrival at Beira he was refused the
privilege of paying the prescribed
duties for entering the Pengive river.
As he received no answer after forty
eight hours he started without per

fire upon him, seized hi two steam

THE QUEEN AT MOLOKM,
Aii Enthusiastic Reception
Tendered Her Majesty.
Arches Erected With Appropria'e
JNoteM, luoldeiit, Couimellly.
The steamer Likelike, under com
mand of Captain Cameron, left Ho
nolulu last Sunday evening at ten
o'clock to convey Her Majesty the
Queen to the Leper Settlement on
Molokai. The royal party was as
follows: Her Majesty the Queen, II.
R. II. Prince Kalanianaole, His Ex
cellency Samuel Parker, Minister of
Foreign Affairs ; Mr. and Mrs. W.
H. Aldrich, Mr. and Mrs. C. II.
Clark. Her Majesty's party and
suite were accompanied by the fol
lowing persons: Hon. David Day
ton, Presideut of the Board of
Health; Hons. D. W. Pua, J. Na
wahi, J. K. Kahookano, W. P. Ka
nealii, Capt. John Ross, Mr. and
Mrs. W. Auld and J. Heleluhe. The
Royal Hawaiian Band, under the di
rection of Prof. II. Berger, was pre
sent, together with a representative
of the Bulletin.
After all were comfortably aboard
the Likelike left the harbor and
arrived at Kalaupapa at 6:15 o'clock
the next morning. Breakfast was
had at seven o'clock, after which
all went ashore. As soon as the
royal landing was made Her Majesty
the Queen and party were greeted
in a most demonstrative and friendly
manner by large numbers from the
Leper Settlement. As soon as Her
Maiestv landed she was wel
comed by cheer upon cheer.
The Leper Settlement band
played Hawaii Ponoi. The royal
Hawaiian Band played in response,
A royal salute was fired from the
As soon as Her Majesty placed
foot on shore she was beneath a tri
umphal arch with the inscription
"Aloha i ka Moiwahine." Immedi
ately upon leaving the landing the
roval party passed under two arcnes
bearing respectively the following
inscriptions: "Kuha l ka JNuu and
"Aloha e ka Lani." Her Majesty
was then driven to the residence of
Mr. Wni. Tell, Superintendent of the
Leper Settlement. At the entrance
was placed the following motto upon
an appropriate arch: "Makia o kou
Aupuni o ka pono." The decorations
of all the arches were artistically
done in ferns and roses woven by
Shortly after the landing was made
the stricken subjects of Her Majesty
the Queen assembled iu large nuin
bers to welcome her. Her Majesty
appeared. She greeted them with
the simple but tender words "aloha
okou." The lepers burst into
similar heartfelt welcome ; it contain
ed only two words: "Aloha no," but
there were cheers upon cheers, which
drowned the formal words of wel
come in one aloha shout.
Shortly afterwards Hon. E. K
Lilikalani introduced His Excellency
Hon. Samuel Parker, Minister of
Foreign Affairs, who addressed the
lepers substantially as follows:
"Her Majesty the Queen has come
to you out of her love. She hopes
to supplement the work done by her
predecessors. Iler heart is full of
sympathy and love for you, her
afflicted subjects. You have suffered
much from the dread disease which
has stricken you, but Her Majesty
never forgets that you are her sub
jects. Upon your welfare Her Maj
esty and the Cabinet lu.ve but one
thought but one wish ; that is, for
your future comfort. Her Majesty
is greatly pleased with the sincerity
of your welcome and will requite
your words of welcome with repeated
recommendations for acts of relief."
Speeches were then made by Hon. J.
Nawahi, Hon. J. K. Kahookano, Hon.
E. K. Lilikalani, Mr. lvekipi and
Rev. J. Kalama. These speeches
were received with great enthusiasm
as wa9 also that of Hon. Samuel
A number of the lepers then took
occasion to address Her Majesty the
Queen. One of these speeches was
especially effective. It related most
pathetically the ravages of the dread
ful disease upon the speaker; how
hard it was for him to be forced to
leave his family and those he loved,
his wife and children, to be consigned
to a place where, perhaps, he should
never leave. Tears were brought to
the eyes of his listeners.
Soon after the speeches were done
horses were procured and fclie party
started for a ride to the Bishop
Howe. The Home is in charge of
the Catholic Sisters under the direc
tion of Sister Marianne. The young
girls of the Home were all neatly
dressed in whitti. The school chil
dren were brought before the Queen,
and, as each passed Her Majesty,
dropped a courtesy. The girls then
formed iu line and sang several
pretty Hawaiian songs. The joyful
appearance of these poor, unfortunate
children w rung the hearts of all those
present and handkerchiefs were freely
used to hide the tears which sprang
unbidden to the eyes.
The Sisters in churge of the Home
then showed the party through the
hospital, the school rooms and the
dormitories, all of which display
great iiealiit'DS ami do the uiuiiiij.ro
meiit of thu Home great credit.
From the Home the party drove to
Kalawao, where Her Majesty was
again received with a royal salute of
21 anvds, the ringiiitf at the bell and
the cheering of thu crowd.

During the Visit a trip was made
by members of the partj, accom
panied by a Bulletin reporter, to
several points of interest near the
Leper Settlement. One point visited
was an extinct crater, the bottom of
which is filled with salt water, and
which previous sounding have proved
to be exceedingly deep perhups
over 2000 feet.
After the luau was finished notice
was given it was time tq leave the
settemlent. All were aboard the
Likelike by 5:15 p. m. and in a few
minutes the ship's prow was turned
toward the capital city of Honolulu,
which was reached between 12 and 1
o'clock this morning.
The entire party, which included
some 300 friends of lepers on Molo
kai, besides Her Majesty and suite,
express thanks to Hon. David Day
ton, President of the Board of
Health, and to Captain Cameron of
the Likelike for the many courtesies
shown during the trip.
THE MYSTERIOUS YACHT.
Two lluleyon with a Fortune in
Opium ou BoardCruise of the
The San Francisco Call of April
16th has the following iu its shipping
t otes :
"Before the Gaelic arrived at
Yokohama, the yacht Halcyon had
sailed for Victoria (B. C), with
$ 150,000 worth of opium on bonrd.
The Customs authorities believe it is
the intention of the owner, Whaley,
to land the stuff somewhere on the
United States soil, but Collector
Phelps will be on the lookout for the
Halcyon and will have a couple of
revenue cutters out patroling the
coast. Should Whaley succeed in
landing the drug in the United States
he will reap a fortune, in spite of the
fact that his vessel has been ashore
on the Japanese coast twice, and be
has had to give a heavy bond not to
land the opium on Japanese terri
tory." Wilder's steamer Claudine, char
tered by Marshal Wilson for a cruise
in search of the opium yacht, re
turned to port at seven o'clock last
night. Communication was had by
the Marshal with the shore at Manele,
on the south side of the island of
Lanai, at seven o'clock yesterday
morning. A new building was going
up at the place, which looked as if
it might be intended for a smug
gler's hut. Two hours later a land
ing was made at Kaumalapau on the
same side, off which the suspected
smuggler was lying four days previ
ously. Nothing of significance was
discovered there. The Claudine
called at Awalua on the opposite side
of the island at 11:20 o'clock, and,
after an inspection had been made of
the beach without tangible results,
doubled on her course and steered
southwardly. About four o'clock,
nothing having been sighted, the
steamer was headed for Honolulu,
where she arrived after an absence
of twenty-one hours.
The cruise of the Claudine was
made largely on the strength of a
statement given in writing by Capt.
Kaai of Hon. J. I. Dowsett's schooner
Haleakala. He reported having seen
a black schooner on the leeward side
of Lanai ou Thursday last. The
Haleakala got within half a mile of
the stranger and hoisted the Hawaiian
flag to speak her. Getting no re
sponse Capt. Kaai headed the Halea
kala to run close up to the stranger,
which immediately darted up the
Molokai channel. In cue hour the
black schooner was hull down, Capt.
Kaai, anxious to make good time to
Honolulu, having given up the chase
as useless, although his schooner is
the fastest sa:ler out of this port.
Marshal Wilson had an armament
of several field and Gatling guns on
board the Claudine, and a force con
sisting of thirteen soldiers of the
Royal Guards, six policemen, and
twelve picked riflemen. Port Sur
veyor Tripp and two customs guards
were also on boaid. The force
amused theniselve? at target practise
on the return trip. Although the
smuggler was not sighted the cruise
is claimed to have been not wholly
devoid of useful results. Valuable
information is said to have been ob
tained by Marshal Wilson, which will
materially aid him in, at least, pre
ventive measures against smuggling
