Washington, Psb, 1" The revised and ?--fTi<-ial
report of Secretary Carlisle's statements I
the House Committee on th Judiciary, the
salient and Imp >rtanl features of which were
s,.r forth lu these e time ago,
faii;j, and st: >ngly Indicates his opposition ta
th" Irflatlon bill now pending in the House of
IV pr i, and pi tbably Justifies the be?

In trust by the Government an security for the
Treasury notes 1 '. I pa; I r .:. bul he ls
Issuing i ertlflcates or any other firm
..f obligation thereon fastei than the "seign?
iorage" bullion ls coined. He ls also Known io
be oppossd to depriving the Secretary of tho
Treasury of th< right to eaten -?? I ij own dis?
cretion in regard to the colna the ab
. ted bullion, and he is ali to the
pi ?; cition to coin the reart ol th< bullion in the
Treasury and retire the Treasury notes and Is?
sue silver i ertlflcati ? In their id,
ll mover, Becretary Carlisle has frequently
end emphatically declare I that, although the
?irv is Buffering from ? dearth of money,
untry is no;, for there ls already more cur
rency than is required to do tho business of
the country. In fact, everything that the s- -
retary has said on this branch of tho subject
amounts virtually to s severe criticism of the
(stu us action of the Democratic majority of
UM Committee on Ways and Means In framing
a bill srhlch will still further deplete the already
Impaired resources of the Treasury, and of the
Democratic majority in the House of Representa
tives for passing such a measure.
The prediction made by Colonel William H.
Morrison months ago, that unless means should
be found lo Increase the revenues, an increase of
the Interest-bearing public debt would be in?
evitable, has already been fulfilled, and the
"dick'.'- Democrats who crltl Ised him then have
? voted for a further shrinkage of th< rev
er.u-s anti have applauded an Increase of 150,000,
MO in thc principal and 11,1.,000 a year In the In
Urastj charge of the public debt. Whatever form
the tariff and internal revenue bill may assume
i ? re it reaches tb< i sldenl thei are ac
1 mjrilahed acta of the party In power, and that
pmy is ?,. >werli -? to und i them.
It ls apparent from the tone of tl
.:.?:. In auppot e pendlni
well as from the remarks of lu a I.
private conversation, thai the Popullst-D
crats who constitute thc majority In the ll m ?
of Representatives, If not In tlie Senate als . will
not rest content even with the pas.--,if- and ap
i r .val rtf that measure In Its ; ?? rm, and
there is no ground upon which td base a
tint they will not fore, I eratlon ol
out-and-out free coinage bill, and. If possible, Its
passage. Of course the prospect i ( their bu -
crems to Bf less favorable now than lt would
have been if the free coinage amendment to the
Sliver Repeal tall had not been defeated by so
big a majority last August That maj rity,
however, was twenty-eight l< ss than the majority
In favor of the Repeal Mil, and, as has already
been shown in these dispel ?!.? s, If all the I '? m ? -
craig who voted for the nslderatlon of the
pending bili on Wednesday and Thursday of this
week, and who voted for um ndltlonal n peal In
August, had voted against repeal then, the bill
would have been defeated by a majority of thir?
teen votes.
? Facts like thees give encouragement to Uland
and his followers, whose desire to drive the co in
try to a silver basis is as Strong aB lt ever was
The Populist-Democratic majority in the pn sent
House of Representatives can be depended on
to do the worst possible thing in Its power In
legislation affecting the money and flnanci I ol
th? country, as It ha? already done In OUStomS
and Internal revenue legislation. Am the period
of conventions to nominate candidates for Con?
gress draws nearer the Populist-Democrats,
especially those who were driven to vote for the
Repeal bill last summer, grew more sager day
by day for an opportunity to vote for some sort
of a coinage or currency bill that, as one West?
ern Democrat expressed In conversation with a
Tribune correspondent yesterday, "will take off
the curso of the votes we cast for the Wilson
Repeal bill a few months ago." Another Demo?
cratic Representative from the West, upon being
asked yesterday by a Republican to pair with
him for a few days, expressed ins regret that
lt would be Impossible for him lo do so.
"Why." said th" Republican, "you arc In favor
of th.- Uland bill, and 1 am oppose.) to it."
"That ls very true," replied the Democrat,
"hut you sc- my people have been cursing me
ever since last August f"i my vote in fa\ ir of
unconditional repeal, and if 1 miss any oppor?
tunity to vote for s.iv.-r this session some other
man will be n< minated In my district I shall
have pretty hard sledding any way. and lt will
not do for me to be absent or paired in favor
of any silver legislation that may bc brought

ths sale-tit points of the document having been
placed In front of "The Star" office a few hours
i..'fore the appearance of th" extra edition, cre?
ated considerable excitement Annexatl ntsts
and Royalists alike, niter reading the startling
announcement, could h ? seen freely circulating
among their Wen ls discussing the contents ol
the dispatch. The special edition of several
thousand copies waa soon exhausted, so great
was the intercut manifested. More excitement
existed over the receipt of this communication
than has been apparent since the stirring In I
dents of December 10. when u was thought the
American marin i would be landed to restore
the monarchy.
Th.- co d-bli oded and atrocious pr, posal of the
ex-Queen to behead the annexatlonlsts was
discuss.'.i with bated breath. Even the R ) il
is-s w.-r.- surprised al the viciousness displayed
bj th" ex-Queen, and h-,r action was severely
criticised and rigorously condemned on all sides
and by all persona. A portion of the Royalist
press purposely muted common! on the ex
Queen'! Infamous proposal.
Theodore H. Davis ls one of the most disap?
pointed and disgruntled Individuals In this c iun
try to-day. Ms is vexed that ths es Queen
failed t.. grasp the greatness of her opportunity,
and declares that no one caa read without a

In a recent communication to the Royalist

significant statement touching the cause of the

"On January 14. lilt, the Queen violated her

allegiance to her."
Ti.is rather startling announcement, coming

sp mdencc relating to th? Abrogation Pay was
re.ol t,. the Advisory Council on January 27. It
will ii"t l.e published, but the substance is j
learned t > he .is follows:
Th- Minister of Foreign Affairs addressed
notes asking the various diplomats who failed to
respond if they had received invitations sent
th"in to a reception on January 17. The replies
of the representatives of Japan and Portugal,
M.-ssrs. Fujfl and ? 'an.ivarzu. are friendly In
tone, earnestly expressing the regret that they
had failed to respond and take part In the
celebration of the day. Th" Hritffh and French
representatlvea Messrs. Wodehouse arid Visen
vaia, use vague explanation! that-they were
guided by the aspect of existing circumstances.
Th.- Government will not pursue the subject
further. Its object, that Of having neglected
invitations acknowledged and put on record, ls
An extremely vi len* sensation was produced
In Honolulu among both parties by disclosures
made of the Queen's attitude in Minister Willis's
li-patch No. 3, which was received by late malls.
Hr desire to beheld the leai|ers of thc uprising
against her was a severe sh., k to both parties.
A similar feeling was produced by ber Insisting
on DecemI. lt on deporting the children of her
enemies. The Royalists are united in expressing
their condemnation of such extreme views, and
th.ir strong regret and disappointment that she
should thus have responded to President Cleve?
land's request for ''leniency.
The "Star" at once denounced th- Royalists a?
"Dyaks" and "head-hunters" The latter re
torted "ti the annexatlonlsts with various vin?
dictive and vloi'-nt expressions alleged to have
I ? .-ii made by them, especially the alleged nm
; .. \ List July to assassinate th-- ijiieen, (aaus
Spreckela and Mr. BlOUnt. Thinking men of both
parties aeetn to bs agreed that the extreme
vlewa officially expressed by the Queen to Mr.
Willis ?!.. not at all reflect the sentiment of either
h--r native or foreign adherenta It is quite cer?
tain that their publication had made her ex?
tremely unpopular among her own party. The
"pup" Hawaiians especially have a strong dis?
like of sanguinary proceedings and are deeply
displease i with th- Queen for insisting on them.

London, Feh. 10.?Nearly all the tolegransl
mm Berlin Indicate that the commercial treaty
letween Gennany and Russia has a good chance
>f being accepted by Parliament The two Gov
rnments came to an agreement some time since.
Pile subetanceofltlsknown and the ftdl text will
won be published. It may best be defined as an
nstrument not of free trade, nor of anything
ipproachlng to lt. but of reciprocity. The nego
lators on both sides have acted on Prince Bis?
marck's motto, "Do ut des." Roughly speaking,
terrona Industry and Russian agriculture are
he two chief beneficiaries under the new treaty.
rh>- manufacturers of Germany ar<- not, per?
haps, quite satisfied, but they seem to consider
that they have got all they could fairly expect
The German Agrarian party, on the other hand,
ire up In arms. They are powerful, well organ?
ized and determined. Conservative as they are,
they are Agrarians first and Conservatives
afterward. They regard a duty on corn as, to
them and to the whole agricultural Interest a
question of economical life and death. The S\t
mark duty?a reduction of aO per cent?means
death. They scoffed at the consolation lately
held out to them by the Emperor, which con?
sisted for the ni..st part in a proposal to organ?
ize an agricultural academy. ?>r what he called
a corporate b..dy for tim promotion of agri?
cultural Interests. They turn deaf ears to his
appeal this week In behalf of the treaty. They
have no confidence in the result of an inquiry
Into the silver question, which has been held
out to them as affording hope of relief. Their
..ne hope and one aim ls the rejection of the
treaty which reduces the duty on cereals. They
demand nothing less than a sliding scale of ad?
ditional duties. They are making a desperate
effort to turn out Count von Caprivl, on whom
th>y look, justly enough from their point of
view, as their enemy.
The contest on both sides ls political as well
as economical Count von Caprivi?or. If not
Count v..n Caprivl. his organs?responded to the
thnat of expulsion with a threat of dissolu?
tion. None could bo more formidable, since a
gcti-ral election with the conservatives appeal?
ing to the country against the Government
would mean. In till probability, the rout If not
the ruin, of the Conservative party.
It ls political In another sense, since the
opening of German markets to Russian wheat
is expected to bring about better and more
friendly relations between the two Government*
The Conservatives reject this view, alleging
that trade and diplomacy are two distinct mat*
tere. That they are not so In the mind of the
German Emperor ls evident from the speech
above referred to at Count von Caprlvl's dinner.
In wdilch the all-wise Majesty of Germany ex?
pressly affirmed the political Importance of a
commercial understanding with Russia, Ita
reject) ?n would be followed, he said, by a tariff
war. and presently by a real war. That is a
grave declaration, and the more so for his state?
ment that the Csnr had intervened personally
to carry this treaty from his love of peace. Just
as the Herman Emperor now intervenes person?
ally. The two Emperors are legislating for their
two countriea
The political point ls one on which Europe
would like to hear Prince Hlsmarck's oplnlont
not only because he ls thc most experienced
f statesmen, but because he ls, or has been,
at the same time an Agrarian and an ad?
vocate of a closer connection with Russia.
So sharp is the antagonism between the
two points of view that a loss adroit
diplomatist might think them Irreconcilable.
Moreover. Count Herbert von Bismarck is a
leader, If not the leader, of the Agrarians In the
Reichstag, and on this subject, as on others, has
been accepted as an exponent of his father's
principles. Altogether the situation ls eminently
one for a full statement by Prince Bismarck, and.
if the recent interview between him and the Em?
peror had any political significance whatever*
m>w ls a good time for lt to be seen.
What the "Hamburger Nachrlchten" says yes?
terday ls Interesting, but not conclusive. It
traces the present difficulties to the Austro-Hun
garian treaties of UM; refunea to admit that
prince Bismarck, had he remained in oftieje,
would have sanctioned the economic policy
adopted after his departure! but refrains from
advising the rejection of the treaty, and ex?
pressly withholds all censure of the Government
The article ls. In short, ambiguous, if not equivo?
cal, and will give little encouragement to the
There ls still another political consideration,
and one which gives to this economical ques?
tion a meaning not merely International, but
European, with a direct bearing on the dread
Issue of peace or war. The prospect of a com?
mercial treaty between Russia and Germany
has given tho alarm to French susceptibilities.
Tbs French press has begun to ask whether
France ls to be "betrayed" by Russia. I do not
see why the Russian press should not begin to
ask whether Russia ls to be betrayed by France.
Is not Kian.-.- proposing to Increase the duty on
Russian wheat?
The French Free-Trnders, who are in a hope,
less minority on the Tariff Commission, must
us?> such weapons as they find ready to their
hands. They start for their own purposes 4
scare about the danger of a protectionist policy
to th? Franco-Russian alliance, or understanding.
,,r whatever lt be They say. with perfect truth,
that France ls raising her duties, while Germany
ls lowering hers, and they Invite you to infer
that Protection ls unpatriotic. This Involves the
further Inference that Russia la bound by her
good will to France to refrain from selling hst
wheat wherever she can get the best price for ll
As the French like logic in polities, they ought
to perceive that by a similar process of reason?
ing they are themselves bound by their good
will to Russia to pay her a higher price than
they pay other settlers, or?which comes to th*
same thing?to reduce the duties on Russian
wheat, while they increase them on wheat from
other countries.
Even the more sober Journals of Paris, though
they do not yet Join In the cries" of treaohery,
are convinced that underlying the Rusao-German
commercial treaty there ls a political object They
dwell In tones of reproach on the love Of Alex?
ander for peace, having forgotten that they and
he have Invariably declared that the bond be?
tween Russia and France waa wholly a bond of
ponce. They accuse him of wishing for peace witts
Germany, and of assenting to thia treaty to pro?
mote lt and to Improve the political relations be?
tween the two countries. Such language thrown
a singular light on the sincerity of the F rem oh
professions, which have echoed ail over Europa.
But the attitude ls eminently Frenoh, and you
can say no more; except that out of such as*.,
