Immediately upon such a signal the Queen would seek protection a!...ard the English gunboat. Those who know the Queen bes! say h r fears rare catos I langer that will follow carry? ing .nu ber own conspiracy t" ovi rthrow the Provisional Oovernment Within the last few days Incidents nave ? ccurred that go far toward bearing out this theory.

The Royalists also assert that many ? f the mi n In the employ of the Provisional Oovernment will go over tva the Queen's side when the llrsl shot is fired. They declare that restoration ls sure the moment the Queen gives ihe signal. Several natives, known to be In the Queen's confidence, have talked when In iiaiuor of a large store of dynamite that ls concealed, as well as many Improved arms. An-ath.-r report in connection with th.* move? ments of the Queen is that a special Inter-Island steamer ls t-. be chattered to carry her and a number of Ii.t connections and followers to Xallaua, on the Island of Hawaii. This point was the ancient ( thi Kings for many years.

These precautions have been deemed necessary because ol the large Increase of suspicious persons in Honolulu who have no means Of supp itt.

JORIBANKS'S DRSKRVKD HONORS-IMPERIALISM AND LITTLE ENGLAND POLICIES-SOCIAL REFORMS - THE OPPOSITION ? MR. LABOCCHERE-THK IRISH AND THE MINISTRY. 1ST CABLS TO THE TRIBCKS.) (Copyrff-nl. 1**91: Bu The Tr Hinno BBBBBUUtBAM London, March 10.?It was Just a week ag" to lay that Mr. Gladstone resigned, that the Queen .ffered I?rd Rosebery th** post of Prime Minister, ind that Loni Rosvbery accepted the post and indertook the reconstruction of the Cabinet. To lay his task is complete. The changes In the fllltatri are few. The Cabinet remains as nearly ia possible what lt was under Mr. Gladstone. Rut the fewness of the changes ls no measure of he difficulties <>f the operation. Cabinet-making s a delicate business In the best of times. It if ?nost delicate of all when upon the composition if a Ministry depends the consolidation of a loosely organized party, and when the retiring Prime Minister has left behind him a legacy of incomplete legislation, ft chaos of conflicting potldea, an unstable and narrow majority In the House of Commons, and a general belief that the majority In the House is not supported by a ma? jority in the country. Such was the situation which Lord Rosebery had to face. He had t" face ..thor embarrass? ments of a more |IBI *BMBsl, kind He was met ->n the threshold with the mena..* of a cabal among his colleagues and with an open mutiny among one section of the Radicals. Slr William Harcourt has behaved so honorably and with such -**meroUfl loyalty that it ls only fair to sup? pose that the usc which the discontented made it his name was unauthorized. He had, how? ever, undoubted claims upon the party, and he had the support of the extremists, who pro clatmed from th.* housetops that they would never be led nor suffer the party to ly* led by a peer. This of Itself was fatal to Sir William's i-hances. No party would stand the dictation of an Insignificant minority. There remained the piesrion whether he would sink personal feelings and serve under Lord Rosebery. Tlie two men are personal friends, but they were rivals, and their political views are very far apart. They rc;,resent two hostile and Irreconcilable, and con? tinually conflicting, conceptions of government. Lord Rosebery Is at the head of the Imperialists, Slr William Harcourt is at the head of the Little Knglainlers, one ol' the few surviving Cibdenites, whose policy would ultimately reduce England to a commercial expression. R.*th found lt possible to serve under Mr. Glad? stone. They now find lt possible to unite again In a common task( for common purposes. Slr - William remains Chancellor of th.* K\.-hie .rVier and becomes Leader of the House of CoamOBML He ls a apable- Minister of Finance and a consummate parliamentary chief. They art great posts, even if not commensurate **tth SUI ambition Justified by long and distingulstwd ser? vice. Moreover, he will, as Leader of the Com? mons, have a free hand in many critical emer? gencies, and necessarily at all times a great de? gree of independence. The House of Commons cannot be led from outside. Sir Willi-.-n may think the Queen ought to have sent for him, but he has a mind open to the value of facts, aid he reflected that she did In fact send for Lord itoseliery, that he had accepted her eommissi *n, that tba country had approved her choice, nnd that lt was a grave responsibility to prevent the forming of an administration under a leader to whom the Liberal party had Joyfully Ir.rrusted its fortunes. H*' acc.rpted'ths position. When that was settle*,! the wrs: was over. Lord Ros-".cry's Cabinet-making, nevertheless, lasted seven full days. It began ..ri tbs Saturday, continued on Sunday, a fact on which remark might bs mule In Scotian 1. a:: 1 C ?.sumed the remainder caf the w.-ek. The Important changes are those Which his own pr-oinoti.in made n s*tss> sary. H.* rciui.mishcs tbs F.nvign ("tne* to Lird IfUmbartay, un.l.iubie.lly with regret. Thc For? eign Oflk-e work is dear to Lord Roaabsry, and he ls dear to the Foreign Oftiee. Lord Ktmbor ley has little experience of diplomacy, but a flexi? ble mind and a p .w.*r of mast, ring n**w duties. Lord Rossbsry retains a gtneral supervision over Foreign Affairs. Lord Kimberley la replaced at tbs India omen by Mr. Fowler, of Wolverhampton, whoas knowl? edge of India il perhaps i m-d.Wanly less than Lord Kimberley's of the Foreign Ortk-e, but he ls a hard-working Minister, with some of that fa? miliarity with finance which is much wanted at the moment in an Indian Secretary of State. He had learned the work Of the leal Govern? ment Hoard, which is complicated, and had pilot? ed the Parish Councils bill through the House sf Commons with as much success perhaps as was possible In the circumstances. To him succeeds Mr. Shaw-Lefevre In the Presidency of that Roard. another painstaking man, with less force ? <f character and less aptitude for House of Com? mons work than Mr. Fowler, albeit Mr. Glad atone once pronounced him an enlighten.**! mem? ber of Parliament. Mr. Hem ut Gladstone becomes First Commissioner of Works, instead Of Mr. Shaw-Lefevre, but without a seat In tho Cabinet. He has the primary advantage of be? ing his father's son, has done well in the ad? ministrative part of his work as Un.l.r Secretary at the Home Ofilce, has more talent than sound? ness of Judgment or political sagacity, and will occupy an o ttl ce where he cannot possibly do much harm. Two other changes are to be mentioned. Lord Rosebery h.eeomes not only First Loni of the Treasury, but Lird President of the Council, a place of precedence which Lord Kimberley haa to renounce. It ls useful to the Prime Minister, who as Prime Minister has no social precedent**) whatever. Mr. Gladstone contented himself with the otu ce of Lord Privy Seal, which has a value Hlmilar to that of Lord President, but less ex? alted, and he could not well hold this last be? cause by custom it ls conferred on a peer The new I>or.l Privy Se;il ls I/ord Twee.lmouth, better known as Mr. I-Mward Marjorlbanks, chief Liberal whip, and probably the best executive ..Ulcer any party over had. To him more than to any other man belongs the credit of keeping tho party together during all that long and difficult session which came to an end last Monday. To him belongs thc credit of the discipline that was maintained, and of the majorities, which but for him would certainly on several critical occasions have DOSE turned Into minorities. To him Lord Rosebery looked for similar service in the coming session where his energy, tact, suavi? ty, diplomatic gifts and universal popularity would have boen more necessary' perhaps than ever. The sudden death of his father removed him to the House raf Lords, and the services which he can no longer render are rewarded with the high dignity of Lord Privy Seal and a seat in the Cabinet. Thia exhausts the list of Cabinet changes, but some of the changes which have not b?*en mada ali* extremely significant. Most significant of all ls Mr. John Morley's decision to remain Chief Secretary for Ireland. He waa offered a great Ctaatlaaed aa This* Psure.
