But Seoretary Gresham Says There Is Nothing New to Be Given Out. Informatieo From Brsall Lem4s to the Bellef That Mollt IN Wokeninlg The Tarul Bill. WArsmrroow. Nov. 17.-It ie now as serted that the onteants of the oipher die patch from Willis at IHawall to Gresham are now knoym. The dispatch, it is elaimed, informed the department that the provisional govorament is prepared to ta slat eve tbrow. Willis dlasovered upon h'll arrival that the provisional government, it it had not antleipated the ultimatum of Cleveland, was at leait prepared for it. A cargo of arms and ammunition had just arrived for the provilesional goverameat mad was in its possession. The cargo comprised 100 stacks of improved rl8fps. four gatling meebine guns and two Maxim rapid fire anne, with a bountiful supply of ammani. tien. Until the receipt of this dispatch all the admilistration ofloital wore ease.iae anI publicly expressed the Arm conviction that the porvielonal government would quietly submit tohe ediet of this government. The olleetion of arms puts a dlferent phase on the matter. It shows beyond doubt that the Dole party intende to main tain its position it possible. It also leaves Mianiter Willis in a rather embarraseing position, for it now trasepires that his instructions did not admit of his going to the limit of using the marines for accomplishlag the queen's transfer to the throne without first inform Ian the state department of sob ascesosly. His dispatch therefore plainly indicatee that he senesdera the resort to arms neces sary. That the minister will get such in struotions there can hardly be say reason to doubt, in view of the positive position taken by the president. It is said that Willis' dispatch contained the stetement that the provisional govern ment has gradually asecamulted munitions of war until it has on band 1,600 ifies, two Gatling guns, besides plenty of ammunl tion. The available force of polils offcers and guards on hoarly duty in Honolulu is 280. while there is a reserve militle of 500, whioh ean be called together on thirty minutes' notiel, and there are further re serves wish swell the total enrolled number of troops of the Irovisional government to 1.100. It is supposed 500 mo;e could be had from the other islands. Beeretary Gresham to-day sanid to an As sea sled press reporter, with some em phasis, that nothing further would be given out ol the subjecot of Hawaii. Blount's re. port will not be given to the public. He strogly faitimated that there was nothing in the report not indicated in the secre tary's letter to the president. He went on to say that it was not true that anything further had been dispatobhed to Minister Willis. This asveotion seems to be meant as intimation that Willis has received in structions and is fully squipped to ast in all euatlugenoies. THINK MELLO IS WEAKENING. Secretary Herbert's Inference From News From Rlo. WASHnoTON. Nov. 17.-Oaprt. Picklnl, commander of the United States navy in Brazil, wares the navy department that eight nations, ineludine the United States, decided not to allow munitions of war landed at Rio de Janeiro. The Brazilian government is in possession of Santos and there is connection there to Rio by rail, and munitions of war most be landed at bautos. Yerstrday the insurgents d eased ship and the Brazllian govelnment fired a salute in honeo of the anniversary of the establishment of the republio. Beoaret y Herbert, in answer to inquiries as to the signfloeaneo. of the nation of naval representatives, said: "It looks to me that this means that Aiello is being very muoh o ippled. Lbhe dispatches that I have re aeived, taking th, m all together, Indioate that Mello should not have any cause for firing on Rio. Thesr is a conoested efort on the pa t of naval representatlves to pre vent nav firing on Rio by Mello or onMello fron the other side. "'I he ouject of the navel rep:esentatives in making this declaration is for the pro tection of commeroe. It Mello osnnot Are on Rio, and if he cannot stop commerce, he will not effeet much. Mello decorated his ships for show, as he wants to give out the impression that he is for the republio. The faeet that he did this leads me to be lieve he is weakening and that he considers the existing goveanment the strongest aids." WORK ON THE TARI r BILL.

Body of Man Found Near Town With a Bullet Hole Through His Head. ,t May Be a Oasis of Suolide or It May Be a Deliberate Mur der. )ae Bedoy ties In the Morgue Usndenti fed-The EvidOnee iefour the Cureo ner's Jury Yesterday. There lies in the morgune at the court house the body of an unidentified man, with a ballet hole through his head, and Ceoner Pleaeants apd a jury are trying to fi.rl out whether it ig a ease of suloide or amirder. At first glence it looked like the :fejmer, bat as the l.aestilation progressed it ied more the pppearanee of murder. The fact that no one has been found who poitively adentfiaee the man, makes the tast of getting at the facts as to how he eas to his death more difioalt. Some people who saw the body yesterday said they believed it was that of John Mac Donald, of East Helena. Others said his name was John Morris, of the same place, and ethers said it was Jack Gibson. The followrng description may help to identify him beyond doubt: He was dressed in dark diagonal coat and ,vest, dark pants, with fne stripe, and dark colored overcoat. He had on a soft black hat, and wore a blue and white neektie. In the tie was a pin, with some sort of white atone. He was about live feet eleven, had dark hair, and a small, light colored mustasehe. He looked to be a man between 80 sad 81 years of age. He had on a elsan white shirt and a turned down col lar, and wore high-heeled boots. His linen was /11 eleas and his olothing in good con ditiok; in feet, he would be considered a well dreased man. In his pockets there was nothins that would serve to identify him, the only articles found being two ooston handkerchiefs and two silk ones, one with the initial M worked in the corner, a corn eb pipe, package with a little tobhaco in it, a eomb in a case, two small keys, one for a Yale look, and 25 cents in money. The bullet that ended hislife entered just above the right eye and went through his head, going through his hat. The end of his naes was black, as thoaugh powder burned, bhut there were no powder marks on his face, and it has not yet been decided that the marks on the nose were powder burns. Coroner Pleasants was notified of the finding of the body about 11 o'clock yester day morning, and went out He found it about two and a half miles south of town, on the road between Helena and Holmes galeh. The man was lying on a side bill, a faw feet from the road. He was on his 49o., withlie hbagds folded across his breas, his limbs extended, and nothing to indioeat that there had been any contrae tron of themusocles or strauggle of any sort. His hat was Jina under his head and was soaked with blood. The snow had drifted over the body some, but it was evident that he had not been dead long, beaense the blood under him was slightly warm. The corener looked around for some sign as to how the crime had been committed and found, almost covered by the snow, a thirty-eight caliber revolver, with three empty shells in it, On the other side of the road, and distant seventy-five feet, there were the remains of a fire. Nothing was found there save a portion of a sack of English Club House tobacco. The body was then brought to town, and in the aft ternoon Coroner Pleasants held an inquest. 'nTe first witness, F. H. Wood, testified that yesterday morning about nine o'cloek he and his seon Cha lea left home to go to Holmes gualh to get sone wood; when he ied gotten eat about two miles and a half on the upper read between Helena and Holmes gulch, he found the body of a man lying beside the road. He said he looked at the Lady end saw a ballet hole over his right eye. Wood said he had no idea who the man was and that he had never seen him before. He teatified that there was a fire down to the left er the road, but no one near it, but he found there a peakage of tobacco. He said he saw men's tracks around the file that had been rartly cov ered up. It looked to him as though two men had loft the fire and gone to where the body was. After notifying the coroner, Mr. Wood went out again, and saw a revol ver lying on the right side of the man, par tially covered by now. Jno. W. Wood. a son of F. M. Wood, went oat to where the body was found, be fure it had been removed. He testified that the tracks in the snow showed that they went from the fire to the body end back agate, thoese leading to the body being the most distinct. At the fire wlre a num ber of footprints, looking as though there had been a scuffle. On a log nes, the fire was a paekage of English olub house to bacco. Wm. Sears, who went out to help bring in the body, testified that he examined the tracks in the vicinity. He saield he found first one traek and then another, one going east sandthe other going west. Hie followed the traekagoing east for nearly half a mile. At a knoll the track had been blown over, end he did not go further; a measurement of the traoks showed tney were both about the same. The other went back to the body and from there to the dle. There he fonad two sets of trecks leading from the lire to when the body was found. About thsee yards from the fire, he judged, there weeas a seuffie, or two men walkina in nearly is each other's tacks. Mr. Bears said the traoehe lading from the fire were made by two poreens, one weeleig high-heeled boots and the other low-heeled boots. At the eomolesion of seare' testimony thi coroner adjourned the hearing until 10 o'elock this merning, in order to fad out. it posible, who could identify the man or throw more light on the manner in which he came to his death. Under all the ciromstaeneees some are not iaolined to the belief that the man killed bimself . L aeyng aside the question of the footprints of more than one mea in the vicinity, the post tieo in whito the body was found weuld indleate that it had been fixed alter death. The bullet that went through the man's head meant almost instant doeth. In sash one it seems ve y pseeliar that he should lay the pistol by his esda, quietly fold hie arnn aeroes his breast, streteh him self out and be found In ea good condition as though he had been fixed by an under taker. Aetther thing that weould indicate there were two men at the sampeefie is that two peekages of tobcoo were fouund. Lying on a leg near the fire was a paokage of Olub hones: in the dead man's poehet wasee a art of a sack of Seal. Sears followed the footprints of a man with low heels half a mile east front waere the body was tfoand and them lost trask of them. The deed mean had on a pair of high heel boots, end his lootrisnte only go to where the body was found. The theory to that the unrtuntoate masn had some money on his po son, and probably some Jewelry; he ren serues some one in town who toond it out, and persuaded him to go oat t. the eoantry to look at a mpe, or on aeine other errand. (etting him out side of town, he killed him, robbed him. and then ized the body so it would look as though it was a ease of sulcide. The dead man's overcoat was buttoned to the oblh, and his undercoat was also buttoned up. If it was murder, it was a deliberate one, planned for roboary, and eurceslaslly ear .led outs if it was sulaide, it was one of the moat peoullir, taken all in all, ever re corded in this vicinity. Last evenlnu Mrs. Cleveland and Mrs. Wilson, who reside at ri8 Beokenriddpe street, called at Undertaker Flaherty's oflice, with the information that they prob ably knew the man. They did not see the body, but after Mr. Flaherty had described the elothing and the man's aspnasreae, they asid they feat it was John D. Morri eon, formerly of Wiokee. They said he had a brother at Benerville, Out., and a counin, Maloom Murrison, at Wiekese One of the ladies said that the dead man was a friend of her husband's and on Thursday -be had received a letter from him, in which he said he was tired of life, and that he would kill himself at eight o'oloek Thursday night. When the ladies heard of the fnading of the body near the city yes terday, tiey couoluded it was that of Mor rioun. The ladies will have the chance to identify him to.day and the couslan at Wic"kes will also be sent for. COAL MINERS' STRIKE ENDED. Am Agreement Madl tetween the Work ers and OWners.

CmICAoo, Nov. 17.-The police tell a queer story regarding the $20,000 robbery of Treasurer Drake, of the Indiana, Illinois & Iowa railway. City Deteetive Plunkett said: "While I was questioning Drake he suddenly grew very angry and said he did not see why the elty polioe took so muoh interest in the robbery. It did not ooncern the people at large, and the matter might just as well be dropped, as the lose affected only his father and himself. The caes, I understand, has b.n turned over to the deteetives by Gen. Drake." The police are now devoting attention to tracing up several stories regarditn yroun Drake's past, and Assistant Superintendent Kipplsy said this afternoon: "We shall not asese work on this alleged robbery until it has been established whether aetual robbers did the job or not.

A NEW PARTY PROJECTED, To Be Composed of Populists and Free Silver Men of All Parties. Will Make a Pull for the Presi denoy at the Next Eleotion. Is the New Party the Paramount Quee tlon at First Will Ie That of Money. WASHNmTON. Nov. 17.-There is a move. meat on for the populists and free sliver men to join forces for the next presidential eampaign. To this end it is proposed that the populists shall hbold their organization In abeyanee, together with their doctrines as to government ownership of railroads, the bhod loan policy, and the issulin of paper money, which the silver men a a body have never embraced, and ender some such name as "National party" make a u nited poll for the presidency and fre eil ver in 1896. A rumor to this effset reached here from Kansas, and it is said that W. F. I ightmoeyer, of Topeka, who was instra mental in ealling the Cliuinnati confer. once In 1891, when the popolist party was formed, had taken the initiative in the movement for a reorgaaniation of the party on lines whieh would command the allegianee of the silver men.
