WASHINGTON. D. C, Oct. 1L
There is no truth in the report that
the former Queen Liliuokalani of Ha-
critically UL She Is in excellent
health and this evening took a walk
in the vicinity of her hoteL
The rumors regarding Liliuokalani
had their origin in a bit of diplomatic
evasion inspired by herself.
Some visitors whom she porlcularly
desired to avoid meeting sent up their
cards. Word was returned that the
former Queen was at tie point of death
as a result of an attack of pneumonia.
The callers, tins made victims of the
expediency, immediately communicated
the iafonaatioe to all with whom
they e&rae in contact
OCT FOK ANNEXATION.
SatHBel" Parker 'jayi it Woahl be
a BlelB:r to IIavhU.
The Chroaiele of October 9th says:
Saraeei Parker of Honolulu, formerly
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ha-,wait
Hnder the Government of
r3ltuokaianI"and a' large landowner
on the Islands, accompanied by
two daughters and a son, is at the
California HoteL Mr. Parker is recognized
as the richest, as well as the most
influential native Hawaiian on the Islands.
He has been known as one of
those advisers in whom the ex-Queen
placed most confidence, and his loyalty
to her interests has never been questioned.
This lends greater weight,
therefore, to his positive declaration
that he has given up all hopes of any
restoration of the monarchy and is
heartily in favor of annexation.
Regarding annexation. Mr. Parker
said that all the intelligent people
there, natives as well as foreigners,
are anxioasly looking forward to the
consummation of the annexation of the
Islands to the United States. "Although
up to this time," he said. "I
have not publicly expressed my sentiments
on the question, after due consideration
I have concluded that annexation
pare and simple would be a
blessing to our Islands. Hence I am
strongly in favor of It. Of coarse, as
an Hawaiian, I should have liked to
see the Queen restored, bet as this
now appears to be an utter impossibility
I wish to put myself on record
as an. annexationist."
"Do yoa. think there are many native
Hawaiians like yoa favoring annexation?"
"Certainly. Take the better classes,
particularly the property-owners, a
great many of them to my personal
knowledge feel as I do. Influences
have been used at the Islands to make
the natives believe the restoration of
their Queen can be brought about,
and petitions have been circulated,
asking the United States Congress to
act in that direction. They believe
that the Queen will be restored to them
and for that reason do not take the
oath of allegiance to support the pres
ent Government "Now, while many
have signed such petitions, if they
owH he convinced that restoration
was an Impossibility, they would to a
man become annexationists rather
than continue under the present state
"I shall return to the Islands at the
end of this month, and will begin a
campaign ol education among my
people, showing them the utter un
reliability of the reports sent from
here, by which they are made to believe
in the sare return of a monarchal
form of Government The natives
are being told that once under the
Tnited States Government they would
have so Toice in their own
whatever, eoald never acquire
'f.e elective franchise, and would be
Ta-ed Uke year American Indians.
Tn their isnoeesce and simple minds,
rhey believe everything told them by
'heir unserapelatts leaders.
-As I seM, the majority of the Intelligent
natives think as I do, and
seold I circulate a petition favoring
annexation among my people, I am
sure I could obtain a3 many, If not

Baltimore soul ltuuluton
VALLEJO. October 12. The Baltimore
went into commission at 2
o'clock today. Lieutenant-Commander
Gottfried Blockinger, her first lieutenant,
is in command, with 100 men and
the following officers: Lieutenant William
Braunesreuter. Lieutenant John
M. EUicott, Chief Engineer A. Kirby.
Paymaster Edward Bellows and Lieutenant
of Marines Dion Williams. It
is reported that the Baltimore will
meet the Philadelphia in San Francis
co upon her arrivaL
NEW YORK. October 12. A Herald
Washington dispatch says: It was
definitely announced at the Navy Department
today that when the cruiser
Baltimore leaves for Hawaii, probably
next week, she will carry with her
orders to the Yorktown and Wheeling
to go to Mare Island.
The withdrawal of these two gun
boats' means that the Administration
is satisfied the Baltimore and Bennington
are sufficient to protect American
interests on the Islands in the future.
The training-ship Adams will proceed
to the Islands in a few days, and
while that vessel has more boys than
men on board and is said to be going
only for the purpose of practice, yet
the addition of her officers and crew
would do much to swell the effective
force of this Government in case a
landing party were necessary.
The cruiser Philadelphia is expected
to arrive at any moment at Mare Island.
The Baltimore will have to be
placed in the dry-dock, but the depart
ment has directed that the work on her
be hastened as rapidly as possible, so
that she may put to sea immediately!
after the transfer of officers and menf
of the Philadelphia has been effected.

MADRID, October 12. It Is
announced .that the answer
of Spain to the note presented by United
States Minister Woodford has been
drafted by the Minister for Foreign
Affairs, Senor Gallon, and will be submitted
to the Cabinet tomorrow.
The reply, it Is stated, will say that
Spain is unable to fix exactly the date
when the war will 'be over,, but the
Ministers repersuaded it will -pot bev
long, because "the situation of the rebels
Is criticaL"" Owing to the rebel
situation and the concession of autonomy,
administrative and economic,
which will be effective before January,
the Government hopes actual hostilities
will finish shortly.
Spain, it Is continued, thinks the reforms
and the activity of the Spanish
troops- are sufficient elements to secure
the immediate pacification of the
island, which, it is asserted, would
have been more rapid if the rebels had
not the succor of filibusters, who,
under the shelter of the American flag,
have contributed to maintain this state
The Minister for the Colonies, Senor
Moret announced "at the Cabinet meeting,
with a view to proving the sincerity
of the Government's promise to
grant autonomy to Cuba, that he had
telegraphed Senor Montori, the leader
of the Autonomist party, asking him
to nominate candidates for appointment
for some of the important posts
under the Cuban administration.
REASON- FOR SALISBURY'S ACTION-.
Important Conc".-Ion- Mmle f
NEW YORK, October 3. The Sun's
(London correspondent cables: France
has withdrawn for the present her opposition
to the British occupation of
Egypt This news, which Is of the
highest diplomatic Importance and significance,
comes from a source which
entitles it to full credence, although
probably there will be no official confirmation
for several weeks.
The announcement the other day
that Salisbury had conceded everything
France claimed In Tunis has
been received with astonishment and
bitter, "though silent resentment by
his own party and savage denunciation
by the opposition press and leaders.
Today's Speaker expresses the sentiment
of all classes when It says: "The
agreement is an unconditional surrender
on the part of Great Britain; and,
as far as can be seen, we have got
nothing in exchange for it What is
to be thought of a player who flings
away the ace of trumps? This Is pre
cisely what Salisbury has done. If the
thing had been done by Gladstone or
Rosebery every Tory newspaper and
platform would have rung with denunciations
of the traitor."
Secretary Sherman Pn Another
Note to Ensland
LONDON, October 13. The officials
of the British Foreign Office reiterate
that the Marquis of Salisbury agreed
to Join in a conference of sealing experts'
representing the United States,
Canada and Great Britain, but, they
add, did not agree to take part in a
conference with Russia and Japan.
The Foreign Office officials will be unable
to say what the British Government
is prepared to do until Secretary
Sherman's" latest dispatch on the conference
The Foreign Office officials appeared
to be astonished at what they termed
peculiar significance to Mr. Goo Kim.
He was baptized in tho uetnei mora
than 20 years ago by Mr. Damon's
father. Since that time he has con-
tributed larsely and has used hla per-
. sonal Influence towards spreading the
Christian religion among tho Chinese.
He Is President of the Chinese Y. M.
C A., has been for many years a teacher
In the Sunday-school and has assisted
In many ways In advancing the
interests of the Church. Mr. Goo Kim
practically maintains a mission In
China. He was also one of tho prime
movers in establishing the Chinese
Hospital In Honolulu. Mr. Goo Kim
has the highest respect and confidence
not only of his own countrymen but
of the community.
Major Mulluiuser Shoots Himself
at the Hotel.
Close upon 6 o'clock last evening
Major Mulhauser, a man occupying a
small cottage near the
entrance to the hotel grounds, attempted
suicide by shooting. Dr. J. H. Raymond,
who occupied a room in the
hotel, was soon on the scene, and,
after administering the usual restoratives,
put the wounded man in a car-
tho "tone of surprise" assumed by
Secretary Sherman In his reply to the
note of the, Marquis of Salisbury ex
pressing Great Britain s declination to
be represented in the conference with
Russia and Japan, as briefly outlined
today in the dispatches from New
IS 60 YEARS OLD
Mr. Goo Kim Celebrates
His Birthday Today.
(Receives Many Gifts Banqueted
by Merchants Will Receive
Mr. Goo Kim, Chinese Commercial
Agent, and the highest representative
of the Chinese Government in the Isl
ands, is 60 years old today. In his own
country great honor and distinction
attends the arrival of the father of the
family at the age of 50 years. It is a
greater honor, and there is greater re-
Joicing at the event to reach the age
of 60. Especially is this so, when the
man whose birthday is celebrated is a
valued member of the community.
Friends and neighbors unite in sending
gifts and congratulations.
The Chinese in Honolulu continue
their birthday customs. All day yesterday
gifts poured in upon Mr. Goo
Kim. The celebration really began
Wednesday evening with the banquet
served in his honor by 61 of the prominent
business and other influential
Chinese of the city. The Chinese restaurant
where the dinner was served
was elaborately decorated with emblematic
panels and festoons. An
elaborate menu was served, and Mr.
Goo Kim was the recipient of hearty
Today Mr. Goo Kim will give a return
dinner to the merchants by whom
he was banqueted on Wednesday evening.
He will also receive his Chinese
friends at his place of business, and
Mrs. Goo Kim will receive the Chinese
ladies at their home on Nuuanu avenue.
A great deal of poetic sentiment is
expressed In the tokens which Mr. Goo
Kim received yesterday. The centuries'
old custom of celebrating the birthday
has a meaning which it would perhaps
be hard for the Western civilization
to thoroughly understand. The
very scrolls which are presented, and
there are many of them, as it Is a favorite
custom, are full of meaning.
The scrolls and some of the gifts received
yesterday were placed In Mr.
Goo Kim's office above his store. The
scrolls are In sets, some of them five
In number, some of them three. The
center one of each bears the Chinese
character "Shan," meaning longevity.
The scrolls on either side contain
verses full of historic meaning. Prominent
among the emblems Is the peach,
repeated In many forms. A panel has
painted upon It the picture of a very
old man holding in one of hi3 outstretched
hands a peach. About him is
a noble and a wealthy merchant who
Is offering him congratulations. The
panel represents old age receiving the
homage of position and wealth.
The Idea of the peach Is continued In
one of the gifts yesterday of a large
pyramid of peaches made of pastry.
At the feast the peaches are given to
the friends who have gathered. Among
'the gifts yesterday was a gold-headed
cane, presented by the Christian,
neso teachers and preachers. He also
received a handsomely-bound Bible in
Chinese. Mr. Frank Damon's gift is a
picture of tho old Bethel. This has
riage and had him taken to the hospital.
Upon examination it was found
that the ball had passed through the
sternum and dropped between the
lungs. The wound did not seem to be
a dangerous one, and late last night
the man was resting comfortably.
Major Mulhauser has been here for
some time, and has been engaged in
no business. He was at one time cred
ited with being one to whom valuable
commissions from the United States
to this Government were entrusted.
It Is said that he was laboring under
In Regard to Proposed Sylva-Murlin
Emil Berger, manager of the Honolulu
team of bicycle riders at
mere Bicycle Track, states that
he wrote to Manager Clement,
asking him. If possible, to arrange
a match race between John Sylva, the
"Manoa Wonder," and George Martin,
about whose various capabilities in the
pedal-pushing line there has been so
much said since the last meet at Ka
piolani Park. The conditions men
tioned by Emil Berger were to the effect
that the match race be run off
on the first night (next Saturday) and
that the judges and other officers in
connection therewith be chosen on Sat
urday, October 16th.
Emil Berger further states that Manager
Clement returned to him with the
words: "It is no go. Martin will not
race until November." With that there
was nothing more said about the mat
The backers of Sylva state that some
of them called upon Martin and asked
him to run a race on the track in the
near future. As stated above, they of
fered to put up ?50 for Sylva as a
guarantee of good faith, and asked
Martin to do the same. He refused and
would name no date. The proposition
was a straightforward, business-like
one. The friends of both sides have
been anxiously looking forward to a
meet If Martin, as he states. Is not
afraid to race the "Manoa Wonder,"
he had a chance to accept the proposition
for the first night when broached
by Manager Clement
Now, then, as to a prize. There is
hardly any object In placing a cup to
be raced for between two men. However,
the backers of John Sylva are
ready with their money, and will put
up $50 or any larger sum that may be
Again Is John Sylva's challenge to
George Martin repeated, this, however,
on condition that the date of race be
mentioned and that a forfeit as an assurance
of good faith be put up.
If George Martin decides to go In
against John Sylva In a match race he
must state his intention to the promoter
of the first race meet by 1 p. m. on

HANDSOME OPAL TROPHY
Crackerjacks Will Open
the Track Saturday.
Honolulu Riders Will Compare
on Short Runs.
An impression seems to have gone
abroad that the crack cyclists expected
on the steamer today will not compete
In the professional ranks with the lo
cal riders. This Is erroneous.
Those who have been constant observers
of the boys' training realize
that they are surpassing anything
ever done by them.
The tenacity with which they have
exercised speaks volumes, as those
who witness Saturday's races will
vouch for. The riders realize that In
order to attract they must give good,
clean sport, and all who have Identified
themselves with racing have gone
into it with the right spirit
The foreign talent will undoubtedly
Introduce, new wrinkles pertaining to
track riding that are perfectly legitimate,
but as far as speed Is concerned,
it Is a question whether they can keep
up the pace in this climate for any
length of time. Honolulu's thermometer
riders are doing work dally that
surprises the old wheelmen.
The opal trophy, offered as a prize
for the exhibition Is a
handsome tho taeshoe pin, set wltht.ll
opals and small diamonds, and is valued
at $ 70. This race is open to competition
to Island boys In the same
class who declare their Intention to
compete. Each man who enters will be
given three trials at the record. Tho
exhibition can be made during the
regular season, commencing Saturday,
or during the next meet, to ' be held
after Christmas. The rider who holds
the lowest unbeaten time at the expiration
of the second meet, shall be
declared the winner.
While the trophy for the amafeur
exhibition has not yet
been decided upon, it is safe to say
that It will be equally well worth contesting

Those who .believe chronic diarrhoea
to be Incurable should read what Mr.
P. E. Grlsham of Gaars Mills, La., has
to say on the subject viz.: "I have
been a sufferer from chronic diarrhoea
ever since the war and have tried all
klnd3 of medicines for It At last I
found a remedy that effected a cure
and that was Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy." This
medicine can always be depended upon
for colic, cholera morbus, dysentery
and diarrhoea. It is pleasant to take
and never falls to effect a cure. For
