SAN Faroecsoo, Sept. 5.-The steamship
Mariposa arrived to-day from Australia via
Honolalu. Hon. John Dominie, prince
consort of Hawaii, died August 26th from a
sudden attack of pneumonia. Queen Lili
oukalani was much affected by the death of
her husband. The remains were lying in
state in the palace when the steamer left.
Dominis was born in Schenectady, N. Y., in
1888. His father was an Italian and his
mother an American. He was taken to
Hawaii when a child and has since resided
there, except a few years during the Cali
fornia gold excitement, when he lived in
that state. He was married to the present
queen of Hawaii several years ago.
There was a severe shook of earthqake on
the island Aug. 25. but no great damage
was done. The Mariposa was delayed one
day in arriving here because of a severe
storm between Sydney and Auckland. The
pilot house and smoke room were stove in,
the cabins flooded, and considerable other
damage done. One of Madame Bernhardt's
servants and the ship's doqtor were injured.
When the steamer left Sydney, John L.
Sullivan and combination were about to
proceed to Melbourne. Capt. Haywood
stated that the stories of Sullivan'sconduct
on shipboard were greatly exaggerated. He
drank in Sydney, but did not create any
disturbance. A party of five roughs at
taoked Sullivan and a friend in a saloon
and were promptly knocked down.

appointed to superintend the collection of
the exhibit, and are already at woik. The

warning that they would be immediately
shot If found on Nicaraguan soil.

Robe in regular Indian fashion, raising a
terrible war whoop and that Indian, not

ENGLAND STANDS ALONE
Salisbury Must Not Expect the
Powers to Side With Him
Against Turkey.
His Is Asked to Be Patient as the
Sultan May Be Suddenly
Deposed.
Catholics to Hold a Great Congress to Dim
ones the Questlep of the Pope's
Temporal Power.
RsaaL , Sept. 5.-The conferences between
Chancellor von Caprivi and Count Kalnoky,
the Austrian prime minister, near Sohwart
zenan, have ended in their advising the
English government not to be in a hurry to
take any diplomatic action in connection
with the Dardanelles incident. The tone
of the official press here indicates distinctly
that the government is adverse to joining
England in any hasty demonstration against
the porle's agreement with Russia. The
North German Gazette holds that the
porte's assent to the claim of Russia is less
important as a breach of treaties than
serious as dtsolosing a new line of policy
adopted by Turkey toward Russia.
The vienez Presse (semi-official) antici
pates sharp antagonism between British
and nussian influences at Constantinople,
and recommends that England become
more amenable as far as Egypt is con
earned. In the opinion of the Presse, the
new position of affairs does not involve any
danger to the peace of Europe. Other
great powers, it holds, have no grounds for
taking an active share in England's im
pending diplomatic measures. The cur
rents of intrigue around the sultan, which
are now in a swollen condition, may be al
lowed to run their course, as the vital in
terests of Turkey will finally bring every
thing back to the proper track. The wait
ing which the imperial chancellors have
recommended to Lord Salisbury is explained
by official advice received to-night from
Constantinople to the effect that the
life of the new Turkish cabinet will be
brief. Highest Turkish circles are indig
nant over the composition of the now min
istry, and especially at the dismiseal of
Ghazi.Osman, minister of war and marshal
of the palace. Strong protests have been
sent to the sultan, whose position is men
aced by the malcontents.
The referenbe of the Vienese press to the
Ibelief that everything will return to the
proper track, points to an expectation of an
earlyv collapse of the pro-Russian ministry.
A successful conspiracy for the deposition
of the sultan is among the contingencies
that are discussed covertly in diplomatic
circles. It is the expressed conviction in
diplomatic circles here that Lord Salisbury
will accept the advance proffered him and
and await the outcome of events.
The Catholic congress w.iou opense.on
Sunday and held its closing session yester
day, assumed unexpected importance.
Seven thousand were in attendance, A
resolution was adopted declaring the time.
had come to convoke a great international
Catholic congress for the consideration of
the question of the restoration of temporal
power to the pope and a committee was ap
pointed to arrange for holding such con
gress. In discussing the question of a
neutral ground for a place for the meeting
of the proposed congress, Switzerland was
most favored. The delegates will be sum
moned from every Catholic community in
the world. The question of the restoration
of temporal power to the pope will be
treated not as an Italian question, but as
one of universal concern.
The congress affirmed the determination
of the German Catholics to remain as reso
lute supporters of the dreibund, and de
cided to continue the policy of Dr. Wind
thorst in working for the recall of the
Jesuits and for religious instruction in pri
mary schools. After considerable discus
sion it was voted to favor state regulation
of labor questions.
The removal of the prohibition against
the importation of American pork in Ger
many has elicited a few press comments.
Several progressist and socialist papers
refer to the measure as a relief to the poor
classes. in official circles, where are beset
known the nature of the resistance to the
measure and the persistent effort made in
its behalf by United States'Minister Phelps,
his success has evoked many encomiums.
Political police have been eagerly hunting for
the author of the sto: ies recently published
in the French papers regarding the health
of the emperor. Having secured the manu
script of some of the articles, they have
been interviewing a number of newspaper
men in an attempt to find some one who
would recognize the handwriting, but their
efforts proved unasviling. The attempt to
connect Bismarck with the authorship of
the stories met with an equal lack of suc
cess. .
SIBerlin commercial paper publishes the
details of the career in this country of Al
beit Otto, who is nrw reported to be spec
ulating heavily in real estate in Chicago,
Ill. According to this authority, Otto, who
was formerly general agent in Stuttgart of
a leading life assurance society, some
time ago ran away, defrauding some of
Stuttgart's residents of many hundreds of
thousands of dollars.
Russian advices report the discovery of
great coal oil fields in the region of the
Caspian sea. The production of these
fields is said to be more than ten-fold
greater than that of any other existing oil
territory. At the same time Russian pro
ducers complain bitterly of the competi
tion of the Standard Oil company, against
which they say they are powerless. Efforts
have been made to create a Iussian trunest
similar to the Standard Oil company, but
the attempt failed because of lack of finan
cial backing.
CHINA NEEDS TREATMENT.
Engllsh Newspapers Say Foreigners' Treaty
Rights Must me Respected.
LoNrDON, Sept. t.-Commenting on the
statement cabled to this city from Shartg
hai, and purporting to give the views of thl
educated classes of Chinese in regard tc
foreign missions in Chinese territory, whiol
it is claimed have utterly failed in the obt
jects they intended to accomplish, and only
tend to foment revolt, the Times to-da3
says: "The lesson to be drawn is that lib.
eral treatment of China is useless. l'Europe
should iunlexibly and sternly insist upon
the observance of treaty rights, and tlhun
avoid itritating and fussy naval disptla3s."
The Morning Advertiser says: "The na
tion (China) which occupies towards for
eigners such an intellectual standpoint a,
this, can hardly be brought to a desirall
frame of mind by diplomatic eluaon
strances."
The Post expresses the opinion that "it it
evident equally from the inherent strength
of the Chinese or from their manifest weak
ness, that a trilling ptolicy is the worst tihat
can be adopted. Europe must preltpi
either to enforce or to renounce her treat)
rights."
Jews Ordered Out of Palestine.
LoNenon, Sept. 15.-A letter is publishe'
here to-day from the minister in charge li
Christ church, Jerusalem, saying the sults,
has stouned the influx of Russian Jews, anc'
that he will not permit thoem to land in Pal
estine without a special order. Fifty fami
lies who arrived recently wore sent back.
The letter adds that Baron Hirsch sought
to arrange with the ports terms of settle
ment which would permit the Jews locating
in Palestine. Palestine, the writer says, is
at present thinly peopled. If the country
were terraced planted and supplied with
water reservoirs it would be highly produo
tive, and the expense would be small in
comparison with the expense of the system
adopted in South American countries.
Fearful for Hfis Life.
LONwDO, sept. 5.-The Standard's corre
spondent at Constantinople attributes the
change in the ministry to the sultan's sue
plolon of a plot to take his life, such 'us
picion arising from the sudden extinguish
ing of the uas in the palace during a storm
recently, and an explosion of fireworks, on
which occasion the sultan forthwith dis
missed and arrested several officials.
The Post's Berlin correspondent says:
"It is reported that Count Kalnoky, the
Austro-Hungary foreign minister, views
the Dardanelles incident with gravity, and
has proposed sending a joint European
note to the porte."
Corruption In Canada.
OTTAWA, Ont., Sept. .-LE. Dionne. of the
public works department, has been sus
pended as the result of yesterday's dis
closures before the public accounts com
mittee. The sub-committee of the privi
leges and elections committee is sitting to
day. From what can be learned it appears
that there is no prospect of its agreeing on
a report. The conservative members favor
the exoneration of Sir Hector Longevin.
while the liberal members propose to bring
in a minority report condemning him. The
report will be debated, and perhaps a third
report as a compromise may be adopted by
the house.
Arrest of an American.
Baane, Sept. 5.-An American giving the
name of Carleton Graves, who stated his
business to be that of a photographer and
his address as "Columbia," was arrested to
day at Mayence charged with being a spy.
Graves' baggage was seized and searched
and he will be detained until a satisfactory
explanation is made as to certain action,
classed as suspicious by the German
police. In default of more definite inform
ation and in view of the fact that Graves
gave his occupation as a photographer, it is
presumed that he may have been kodaking
the fortifications.

THE CRIME OF A COOK,

Sweetheart, Cuts Her With H
a Knife.
The Would-be Murderer Escapes, t
And There Was Talk of
Lynching.
Bryant McDonald Shoots and Kills Lee
Odair-The Affair the Result of a 1
Political Discussion.
MrLra OrrT, Sept. 5.-[Special.]-Charles
Snyder, a restaurant cook, has for some
mouths been devoted to Lily Dunkley, re
cently pastry cook at the Maoqueen house,
but now doing honuework at the household
of Judge Milburn. He proposed a few
weeks ago, but was refused. He persisted
and as he was kind and attentive his fre
quent visits were allowed. For several
days he has been expecting to go east on a
cattle train, but had each day failed, as he
did to-day, to be taken as one of the hands.
He called this evening, walked with the
girl across the street from the judge's resi
dence, and was seated on the front steps of
a vacant building. In a fit of jealousy,
upon being again refused he whipped out a
butcher knife, making a terrible cut across
the back of the girl's neck, and one
cut across the side of the neck,
just missing the artery. Her screams at
tracted Judge Milburn, who assisted her
into the house and then summoned medical
aid. Her wounds were dressed, and while
she is terribly hurt she is out of danger.
Soon after the occurrence the sheriff and
posse began searching for the would-be
murderer, and strong threats of lynching
are made. He is a short, thick-set German,
probably 28 years old, not over five and a
half feet high. light hair and smooth face.

a small place in this county and a man named
Lee Odair, quarreled at Yankee's Joe's sa
loon, ten miles up the valley from this city,
this afternoon, and McDonald fired three
bullets into Odair's body. Both men had
been drinking heavily, and were good na
tured enough until their conversation
turned upon politics, when the trouble be
gan. McDonald stooped down to tie his
shoe string, and Odair grabbed him by the
back of the neck with one hand and pum
melled his face with his other fist. Mc
Donald could not recover an upright posi
tion for a fair fight, and this so
exasperated him that he drew his revolver
and fired four shots at Odair, three of
them taking effect in Odair's side. Mc
Donald gave himself up to the neighbors,
who brought him to Anaconda and turned
him over toDeputy Sheriff Tracy. An An
aconda physician went to the wounded
man, but could do nothing for him. He
will die before morning. McDonald's rep
utation is good.

BUTTE, Sept. 5.-[Special.]--The jury in
the Davis will case has now been out over
thirty hours, and as far as is known, with

are for proponents and five for contestants.
It is highly improbable that a verdict will
be arrived at to-night, the jurors having
announced that they would retire at 1
o'clock.

IIAYTI IS DISTURBED.
Prospects Good for Serious Trouble in
Hilppolyte's Land.
NEW YouK, Sept. 5.-The Norwegian
steamer Alert arrived this morning from
Haytien ports, and reports that a climax in
Hayti's disturbed affairs will undoubtedly
be reached soon. The news of the return
to the Haytien capital of the exiles from
Kingston, Jamaica, is being circulated in
other large cities of the republic, and the
forts guarding several seaport cities are
strongly garrisoned. It is asserted that
i orders have been issued by Hippolyte if the
exiles returned to the city and made a suc
cessful attack on the place, the guns were
to be turned on the city. So strong is the
belief that a revolution will break out that
a1 any foreign residents have moved out of
Fort an Prince or are sending their families
away. On the day of the Alert's departure, '
Hippolyte's family was leaving Port An
Prince for Cape Haytien. Hippolyte
t said to have lost confidence in the etrent
of his soldiers, and is preparing to follw
his family to the cape at the first approach
of the insurrectionists.

mulatto, belonging in Atlanta, Ga., with a
family of a wife and seven children, arrived

story of the condition of affairs in Liberidi
Africa. On the 22d of last May, lured ti
the promises of the society for the
promotion of colonization in Liberiai
he sailed to that place. On arriving
at Moravia he found the country in
a most debauched condition. The Ameri-'
can negroes, who have already emigrated
there, had assumed the most tyranical rule
over the natives. No part of the groundu
was under cultivation. Parks has been 6
slave in the south, but he says the condi
tion of slavery in Liberia is worse than in
Georgia before the war. Parks, because he
would not deal in the human flesh, was os
tracised by the negroes from America. Af
ter spending twenty-one days, he con
cluded to return.
