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 of affairs. "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 , - . s -s.-- w ,?

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. f Sl'AIS RERI.V. Will y to Cnltxl Stmt's TUsit War Will !oon End. 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 of affairs." 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 Territory. 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." SALISBCTtV STTRPRISEO. 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 is received. The Foreign Office officials appeared to be astonished at what they termed J 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. ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. 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 York. IS 60 YEARS OLD Mr. Goo Kim Celebrates His Birthday Today. (Receives Many Gifts Banqueted by Merchants Will Receive His Countrymen. 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- .-- MR. 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 congratulations. 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 GOO KIM. 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 temporary delusion. FACTS STATED. In Regard to Proposed Sylva-Murlin Match Race. 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 ter. 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 mentioned. 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 Saturday. - WITH THE RACERS Hotes From AroiJ tie Cyclpre Tract HANDSOME OPAL TROPHY Crackerjacks Will Open the Track Saturday. Honolulu Riders Will Compare With Foreign 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 for. The entries for the opening meets are as follows: SATURDAY AFTERNOON. First event One-mile novice (open to all amateurs who have never won a race): K. B. Porter, W. Chilton. T.
