Hawallcns Will Not Give I the Pro
visional Government anil Restore
the Monarchy Without Being? Com
pelled to do so.
Wtshington, Nov. 13.Unless he has
toet with some delir, United States Min
ister Willis has now been in Honolulu
a week, and it is no. improbable that he
has carried into eftect the inbtructions he
took with which l^e been so well kept
a secret on this sid1
of the Pacific. If
he has done so, the steamer which left
Hoi.oluln yesterday will bring the news
of the consequent events and will reach
an outlet to the rest of the world with
it 011 next Saturday. Whatever recourse
the administration may have determined
upon to secure the restoration of Queen
Liliuokalani, it is very evident that Sec
retary Gresham doe? not expect that ex
treme measures will have to be lc-orted
to. The course proposed to be pursued
solium to be to reque-st the I resent gov
ernment in the name of the United States
to ghe way quietly to the restoration oC
the queen. The Hawaiians in this city
are -very firm in their conviction that the
government will refi.&e to yield to any
breh gentle periauwon as that. They as-
s.i*it Iheir errnest belief that it ill re
quire at least a shnv of force to induce
them tc resiu ii the reu ot authoritj.
Congressman O'Neill of Massachusetts
has hud before Secretary Gresham an
appeal from a Boston house having large
interests in the islands, which shows
that all those acquainted with ths condi
tions ha^ not so hopeful a belief a
tne outcome of the elfort to restore the
queen. The dispatch reaels as follows:
"Boston, Nov. 11.Please call on prop
er officials and request on behalf of your
constituents holding property in Honolulu
and throughout the kingdom that instruc
tions be sent to the United States minis
ter there to protect the same. We be
lieve there is great danger of bloodshed
and destruction to property. Have tel
egraphed Senator Hoar these facts.

h&rdle up through the ventilator in the
center of the ceiling. To the other end
he fastened a small coid, and to this the
ncose which he had made out of wire

instructions from Gen. Carlin and will
join the searching party immediately.

Worthington, Minn., Nov. 14 While
John Iverson of this place was returning
from a visit three miles southwest of
here between the hours of 11 and 12 p.
m., on the track of the Omaha road, he
was startled by a command to halt.
Having about $350 on his person he
turned and started to run. Two shot*
were fired after him, one passing through
his hat and the other lodging in his 4eft
leg. Iverson fell and lost consciousness.
When he came to he found himself at
the bottom of a thirty-foot eubanluuent
He started for Sioux Fflls Junction,
which was about a half-mile from the
scene of the shooting, and arrived about
hblf an hour before the passenger train
No. 2 from Sioux Falls was due. He
croused the agent at the junction and
told him what had happened, and that
at the time of his leaving the scene of
the schooting sever il men were busiljj
engaged in doing something on
way track. No. 2, which does not stop
at the junction, wis flagged and* an in
vestigation made. The angle bases weie
found to Lave been removed end several
spikes drawn. Officers at this place, also
a lailroad detective ot Austin, were no
tified and search was made, but nothing
of importance was found. Ive-rson's
watch, which WXJ missing, was found
near where he lay, at the foot of the em
bankment also his hat, with the bullet
hole in it. There it. no doubt that the
Miscreants intended wrecking the tram
for the purpose of robbing the pisseng-rs,
as one of the rails nsd been sprung about
an inch toward the center of the rond
but Iverson's unexpected appearance ar-d
ihe robbers' unexpected good lu- in
finding so much money made them cha-'ge
their minds regarding th. train. If the
train had left the trick at that point it
is not probable that many of the psYsser
gers would have been left to tell the rah"*.
Otiicers are hird at work and new lev^l
opments are s-o expected.

San Francisco, Nov. 14.Japanese ad-
Minneapolis, Nov. 14Louis F. Men
age, master of the sciences of finance and
of disappearing, has been found. By this
time he is probably prisoner in Guate
mala, held to await the arrival 6f United
States authorities. Yesterday a message
from Secretary Greshcni flashed across
the wires to that obscure Central Ameri
can state, asking the arrest of C. A.
Miller, Apartado 196, City of Guatemala,
Guatemala, Central America. That man
Miller was L. F. Menage, the man who
stands charged with some of the most
daring financial piracy ever committed in
this part of the country, and who must
answei to two indictments in the Henne
pin county district court. When tho
Guaranty Loan company went under,
May 14, there were many who said it
was due to the financial panic, then at
its worst. None suspected any glaring
dishonesties to exist in the management
of the great financial concern, and so,
when enough was ascertained to warrant
the indictment of Menage, there was a
revulsion of feeling. It was acknowl
edged on all sides that the only way to
retrieve the damage done to this part of
the country by the reported operations
of Menage and others was to mete out
justice strictly in accordance with the
demands of the case. But when this de
cision was reached Menage was nowhere
to be found. He had quietly slipped
tn ra i atm
advice of an accomnio
physician. A few of his quondam
f.ssociates, wlen approached on the sub
ject, seemed indignant that any one
supposed they would tell his whereabouts,
and were correspondingly uon-commum
cathe. Rewards weie offered for the
turn of tha missing financier, but noth
ing came of this ,ne.ve, although a story
cii ciliated by a former associate of Men
age gave rise to a general impression that
tho man wanted was in South Ameiici.
Although there is no extradition treaty
between the United States and Guate
mala, Secretary Giv&ham was so im
pi'esseel with the oaoiinity of Menage's
crime that he will do everything in his
power to hav him leturned to this coun
fry. The cablegram ordering the arrest
of Menage was then written as follows:
"Hon. Col. Ycung, Minister of United
States at Guatemala: His honor, the
secretary of state at Washington, re
quests the immediate arrest of Louis F.
Menage, alias C. A. Miller, apartado 196,
Guatemala, pending arrival of extradi
tion papers on the charge of larceny and
embezzlement had in Minnesota for which
indictment has been returned and war
rant issued. Papers will follow immedi*
ately. Walter Q. Grc&ham."

Minneapolis, Nov. 15.There wai ft
decided sensation at the exhibition given
by Miss Anna Eva Fay. Her regular
pic.granime had proceeded up to that point
where, in company with another lady and
gentleman, she sits in front of the cabi
net, all three being hidden from view
except their heads by a curtain hung in
front of them. When the "spirits" in the
cabinet had carried on their antics for
a minute or so, Mr. Moulton, one of the
gentlemen whom the audience had dele
gated to go on the stage and watch the
ceremonies, became over-curious, and
pushed forward to lift the curtain around
the medium's feet. He did more than
this. He lifted her skirts, expecting to
find a boy concealed there, but saw noth
ing but nicely trimmed lace skirts. Miss
Fay became highly indignant, and pro
tested vigorously. Her assistant rushed
over and grappled with Mr. Moulton, and
a rough-and-tumble fight ensued, which
was quelled by a policeman who put
Mr. Moulton off the stage. Half of the
audience sided with Moulton and the oth
ers sympathized with the lady, -and a
scene of confusion followed. When quiet
was restored Miss Fay proceeded with
her exhibition, adding that if there was
any lady in the audience who desired to
examine her clothing she might do so.
