PROPOSED CHICAGO TRIP
Outside of the currency question, the
President's cabinet discussed nothing of
genral Interest today. The question of a Sat
urday half holiday was not brought um, it
will go over until Friday. At the conclu

McKenna remained some time with the
President, talking over pardon cases.

Intercetied with the .President today for
Commander Mullan. He asked the Presi

he characterized as unjust and Illegal. The
President is receiving many appeals from
the fr:ends of the commander. He will not
take the case up for several days.
It is expe-ted that the President will
shortly nominate a register of the treasury
to sucreed J. Fount Tiltman. Leading col

appoint a colored man to the plum. It was
said today that the three leading colored

The President*s Plans.
Prior to the cabinet meeting the Presi
dent saw a part of the large number of
callers, but it was a small part. Senator
Allison saw the President early and talked
over the tariff situation with him. The
PresIdent looks forward to the speedy pas
sage of the tariff bill. It Is probable that
the President will be at the Capitol when
the tariff bill is passed and will sign the
bill on the spot. So soon as this is done
the President will speedily finish the con
sular anl other appointments which he has
been nolding up, and will then get away
for his summer vacation. He will hardly

to go to Chicago to attend the unveiling
of the monument to Gen. John A. Logan

thing which could prevent this would be

months on his vacatio.. During that time,
however. he will fill several engagements.
One of these will be to attend the G. A. R.
encampment at Buffalo. Another is to at

The New York Ocee*.
Senator Platt had a conference with the
President about New York offices and the
consular places which are to go to that
state. The slate for New York and Brook
lyn, as agreed upon by the Platt and anti
Platt factions, is said to be as follows:
Robert J. Sharkey (Platt) for naval offi
cer of the port of New York.
Silas C. Croft (Platt) for surveyor of the
port of New York.
Andrew Jackson (anti-Platt) has been
offered, but has not accepted, the Brook

been offered the post of superintendent of
immigration at Ellis Island, but it Is said
that he has declined.

Gen. Burnett. Ex-Gov. John S. Wise, who
was the anti-Platt candidate for this place,
was at the White House today, but it Is
not thought that there will be any change
in the slate. Senator Platt personally
wants Gen. Burnett for the position to
which he has been selected.

Gossip About the Places and the
THEI SOlE TERIS EXPIRE
Candidates Who Are Already in
The approaching adjournment of Con
gress and the resulting departure of the
majority of the senators and representa
tives from the city has inspired among the
applicants for local offices and their friends
an intention to storm, the White House
and endeavor to get President McKinley to
distribute the federal patronage in the
District of Columbia as soon as the out
siders leave. It was semi-officially an
nounced at the commencement of the pres
ent administration that the office holders
appointed by President Cleveland, both in
Washington and elsewhere, would be per
mitted to serve out their full terms of
office. The resignation of Recorder Taylor
paved the way for the appointment of Re
corder Cheatham, and since then nothing
has been done at the White House con
cerning the local offices. It is claimed in
some quarters, however, and whispered
mysteriously about that President McKin
ley is about to change his mind on the sub
ject of letting incumbents finish out their
terms, and, in view of these rumors, there
has been a marshaling of forces on the
part of the republicans who want to step
into shoes that present wearers may be
required to kick off. The rumor about
President McKinley's intention in this
direction takes the shape that he will sug
gest the resignations of incumbents.s he
did in the Taylor case. While President
McKinley himself has not indicated any
disposition to do anything oT the sort, such
gossip has nevertheless had the effect of
awaking the sleeping hopes of those who
hear it, and there is animation among
One official's term will expire tn January,
11,8. It is that of Judge Kimball of the
Police Court. There is a very strong move
ment on foot to have Judge Kimball reap
pointed, but there are other gentlemen be
ing influentially backed for the place. Jus
tice Samuel C. Mills is one of these, and
Justice Scott, who has presided also over
the two polie courts in the absence of
either Judge Miller or Judge Kimball, is
another. The friends of John H. O'Donnell
of East Washington claim that he has the
best chance for the appointment, because
the two Pennsylvania senators are at work
in his interests. E. M. Hewlett, the col
ored lawyer, is said to be a well-backed
candidate. The friends of Mr. James L.
Pugh, at present the prosecuting attorney
in Judge Kimball's court, are very anxious
for him to mount the bench. Of course.
Mr. Pugh is not a candidate, as his posi
tion would prevent such a thing, but it is
believed he would accept the place if it was
Marshal A. A. Wilson's term also expires
next January. The announcement was
made when President McKinley was in
augurated that he had offered the marshal
ship to Wililm Hahn, the Ohio republican
politician. There was much opposition ex
pressed to the selection of an outsider, and
a general expression in favor of the ap
pointmentof National Committeeman My
ron M. Parker.
Some other names have been proposed,
buf It is generally felt that no one is so
well entitled to the position as Colonel
Parker. and it is believed he will be ap
If Collector Dorsey Clagett's term is re
garded as a continuation of that of his
predecessor, Wm. H. Manogue, it will ex
pire in May, 1898. If his appointment is
looked upon as an original one, it will not
terminate until October. 18118. William B.
Todd is the first applicant to announce
himself openly as a candidate to succeed
to the collectorship, but there are said to
be many in the thickets merely awaiting
the prop r moment to show themselves.
Postmaster Willett's term expires in De
cember. 1808. Some time ago ex-Postmas
ter Sherwood was regarded as having the
best chance to succeed him, but it has
recently developed that he will not, in all
probability, be chosen. It is currently re
ported that Mr. Archibald Greenlees of this
city has already secured the support of
many prominent citizens, regardless of
party, in behalf of his candidacy for the
place, and there is also gossip to the el
feet that Major Hillman A. Hall also has
his eye upon it.
Regieter of Wills J. Nota McGill's term, if
four years is regarded as a term in the
cffice he holds, will expire in, September,
189. It is a very interesting question if
there is such a thing as a limit to his
term, however. The probate law in the
District is governed absolutely by the
Maryland law of 179, and section 4 of
chapter 60 of that law provides that regis
ters of wills shall hold their commissions
dLring good behavior, removable only for
misbehavior on conviction in a court of
law. If this held good Mr. McGill would
unquestionably grow gray in office if he so
desired. Since President Garfield called for
the resignation of Col. Amos Webster, how
ever, the rule has been to let each incum
bent serve a term of five years and four
days, If this is done in Mr. McGill's case
he will serve 'at least until September 8,
11100. The leading candidates for this place
are Col. Levi P. Wright and Mr. Milton M.
District Attorney Davis has never re
celved a presidential appointment. and
consequently it is a question whether his
selection by the District Supreme Court to
fill an existing vacancy can be regarded as
being for a four years' term. It is declared
with much positiveness in circles usually
well informed that a change in the office
has been pr'actically determined upon, and
that a republican will succeed Mr. Davis
on October 1 next.
It was learned today that all the District
judges and the bar association had - in
dorsed Mr. Thomas M. Callan for appoint-.
ment to one of the two vacancies existing
among the District justices of the peace.
'Rebuilding on Ellis Island.
Secretary Gage has written a letter to
Senator Hale, in charge of the general de
flciency appropriation bill, urging the in
corporition in this bill of a Drovision for
rebuilding the immigrant station at Ellis
Iland. The Secretary says that if ample
provision is made for the building at once
the construction can be completed by Jan
uary 1, 1899. While in the opInion of the
Secretary 1600,000 will be necessary to
complete- the work, he says that only
$200,00j0 need be made available at pres
ent. The Secretary says that as this is
the largest immigrant depot in the world
it should, when rebuilt, combine the best
features of an institution of the kind.
Providing for Reinstatesment.

HER REAL CHARACTER
Lilinuokalani, the Former Queen of
MUFRMJC OF A HT DFEID
Some Statements That Will- Not
THE RECORD OF HISTORY
Correspondence of The Evening Star.
HONOLULU, June 23, 1897.
A champion of Liliuokalani has recently
come forward In Harper's Basar In the
person of Mrs. Harriet Prescott Spofford,
a writer of high repute. Mrs. Spofford ap
pears to have been so deeply impressed by
the gracious bearing of her ex-majesty as
to have unguardedly accepted as truth all
representations of fact made by herself or
her secretary. Julius A. Palmer. She has
thus been misled into making a number of
rarvelous ~mlhstatements In her Bazar ar
ticle, which have created much of both
indignation and amusement in Honolulu,
where the facts are well known and the
Bazar is much in vogue among the ladies.
It seems fitting to reftate some of these
misleading errors, altl:otgh a somewhat
As Liliuokalani has assumed the position
of attacking the present government of
Hawaii, and opposing annexation in the
name of the Hawaiian people, she must
nccept the natural penalties of her under
taking, in case of departure from the truth.
Mrs. Spofford's highly enthusiastic de
scription of the ex-queen's external graces
of appearance and manner is not altogether
inaccurate. Mrs. DomIr.ls was adopted in
infancy by members of the royal family
ard passed all her years in court circles.
She has always teen accustomed to meet
from time to time noble or princely visitors
to Hawaii, persons often of exquisite grace
of manner. She also visited Queen Victor
ia's court in the jubilee of 187, where she
w as cordially entertained. Her opportuni
ties for cultivating the external graces
have been exceptional, and she has not
failed to improve them.
Next comes this sentence: "There are
few women on thrones today who are as
entirely royal in descent as Liliuokalani;
she has no other blood in her veins than
the blood of kings." Again, "The queen,
'er niece, the lovely Katulani, and two
cousins are now the last of the Kame
hamehas." The well-known facts are that
none of the individuals named possesseg
any except some very distant and indis
tinct relationship to the Kamehameha fam
ily or to any other branch of former rdyal
families in these islands. The exceptions
are the two young gentlemen commonly
known as Prince Jonah and Prince Cuoid,
who are remotely descended frem King
Kaumualii of Kauai, who died seventy
years ago and was not related to the fam
ily of Kamehameha. These "princes" are
nephews of Kalakaua's widow, and are not
otherwise related to Liliuokalani. Kala
kaua and the ex-aueen were children of
Keohokalole, a chiefess of the third grade.
whose husband was Kaoaakea, of similar
rank. The mother, like all third-grade
chiefs, could trace descent from royalty
somewhere from six to ten generations
back. King Kalakaua was, beyond possi
ble contradiction, the natural son, not of
Kapaakea, but of a Jamaica cuadroon,
John Blossom, who flourished in Honolulu
nearly sixty years ago. Lilluokalani is
also generally believed to be of the same
or gin, possessing therefore three-eighths.
white blood and one-eighth negro, which
betrays itself in her wavy hair, which is
not like the straight Polynesian locks.
A legitimate son of John Blossom still
survives in this city, who strikingly re
sembles both Kalakaua and Liliuokalani.
So much for Mrs. Spofford's accuracy
alout the royal descent.
The ex-queen may be distantly related,
as Mrs. Spofford alleges, to the excellent
heroic and gentle lady, Kapiolani, whom
Tennyson sang as the defier of the terrible
fire goddess Pele. Mrs.Spofford says "Liliuo
kalani Is a woman who today could do the
same thing." Unfortunately, about twelve
years ago she did precisely jhe opposite
thing. After, as heir apparent, royally pa
tronizing a great Sunday school conven
tion of the natives at Hilo, she proceeded
with her retinue to the Volcano Hotel and
descended to the great Fire Lake. Instead,
however, of deflantly flinging in stones,
like Kapiolani In 1825, she threw in a live
pig and a live fowl as a sacrifice to the
goddess, accompanying the act with heath
en chants by her attendants. This I state
upon the personal testimony of a guide,
who carried the pig and witnessed the sac
rifice, as well as of the white keeper of the
hotel, who knew all about it. Mrs. Dom
inis afterward endeavored to parry the
charge by explaining it as a "harmless
conformity to ancient customs, like stand
ing under the mistletoe." There have been,
however, too many cases well known of
her otherwise participating in gross heath
en ceremonies when visiting country dis
tricts. She may not have been personally
superstitions; she may have done these
things solely for the political purpose of
winning to herself, as she succeeded in
doing, the firm support of the large heathen
party among the natives, who are now the
strongest element among the royalists. It
was this gross tampering with the ancient
idolatry which set so many of the best and
ablest native pastors against her when de
"Guileless and Kindly" Queen.
"Her majesty," Mrs. Spofford ram
bles on, "is of a simple and kindly and
uinsuspicious nature." But it seems to
have Been the gifted lady interviewer who
was so simple and unsuspicious. The occu
pants of thrones are rarely guileless per
sons. In the arts of dissimulation they are
generally past masters, and her ex-majesty
is hardly an exception. So thought our ex
cellent ladies of the W. C. T. U.. whose ap
peals against the proposed lottery and
opium bills she used so tearfully to res
pond to, all the time that she was diligent
ly bribing the native legislators to vote for
them, just before she was dethroned. If
the royal lady hem any one accomplish
ment more perfected than another it is
that of facile dissimulation. Nothing -is
better understood by all experienced resi
dents of Honolulu, native or foreign.
Mrs. Spofford next boldly touches a deli
cate subject, "She has lived a spotless
life as child, woman and wife," and so on,
at considerable length. On the whole, it
seems best to refrain from specifically dis
cussing this subject. It is an unsavory
one; it is one where it is diflicult to 'die
tinguish between fact and scandal; it is one
as to which women of Hawaiian birth are
entitled to the most forbearing and toler
ant judgment, in view of the utterly differ
ent ethical standard of the race am com
pared with tha-t of Europe. It does not
seem unjust, however, to refer to a viru
lent adverse statement of her then bitter
enemy, Col. V. V. Ashford, which embodied
the worst allegations then made against
the queen. That statement is to be found
in Blount's Report, on pages 208-210. Simi
lar charges were made daily by John E.
Bbsh and Robert Wilcox in the legislativeI
debates of 1892, and in Bush's Hawaiian
and English daily, Voice of the Nation.'
These three men, Ashford, Wilcox and
Bush, were steady haters of tI.e "reform"
or "missionary" party, but just at that
time liere temporarily hostile to the queen
and her alleged favorite, Marshal Wilson.
They only gave open voice to what had
long been current scandal, whether true or
The queen did not appear implacably to
resent these charges. Two years later,

the services of Wilcox as a military lader,

an order from President Cleveland to restore
the queen, upon her promising full amnesty
to those who had dethroned her. Mr. Wil

which she used, and will doubt.less be ac
cepted as reliable. Under date of Novem

c&ne was present at the half-hour Interview
which followed, her chamberlain having
been taken to another room, and Consul

It thus appears, contrary to Mrs. Spof

present or within hearing. Mr. Willis had
no clerk or secretary. Mr. Mills, who had
been Col. Blount's stenographer, was on
the veranda, a public place, out of hearing
of anything passing within.

ier interviewer makes much of
her boasted benevolence in maintaining
"twenty girls at the Missionary Seminary,
and as many more at various other
schools." Twenty pupils at $50 each would
cost $1,000. Lilluokalani did not do this
personally, but through an association of
women, to whose funds she contributed no
doubt liberally. Meantime two aged ladies
of the mission, whose husbands, being lay
men and having engaged in business, had
left them wealth, were giving to the same
girls' schools several thousand dollars
apiece every year. But Liliuokalani's great
influence thus acquired over the girls was
always felt by the trustees to be extremely
pernicious, in casting over the school the
poisonous shadow of the vilely corrupt
court of Kalakaua. It was a happy day

First, the power of veto had never been

posed, forever. * * * Near the end of
the session (in January), in the absence of
six of Its opponents, the lottery till was
suddenly brought up, rushed through, and
passed, to the surprise and horror of the
community, only one white man voting for
it. * * The lottery was expected by
the queen to be a source of revenue which
would render her less dependent on loans."
I insert the three bracketed passages as
It immediately became notorious that the
queen was furnishing the money to bribe
the native members to vote for the lottery.
It was her pet measure, in order to meet
the financial difficulties which she expected
to attend her violent substitution of a
despotic constitution. It was an essential
part of her coup d'etat. The concession
aires of the lottery agreed to pay her gov
ernment $500,000 per annum, expecting to
make the money by selling the tickets in
the United States. She signed the bill in
defiant contempt of the angry protests of
the most influential people in Honolulu,
including the entire chamber of commerce.
It is this corrupt, treacherous and de
spotic woman whom the gifted Harriet
Prescott Spofford has been apparently
hypnotized into believing an angel of
sweetness and truth, Had Liliuokalani
been a sovereign of truthfulness, modera
tion and honor she might have continued
undisturbed on her throne until today. But
then Hawaii would still be groaning under
the incubus of the incompetent native mon
archy which the country had outgrown.

The Weather ia the Central Valleys,
Lake Region and New England.
The Agricultural Departement weather
bureau in its report of erop conditions flor
the week ended July 5 says:
In the states of the central valley., lake
region and New England, the week ending
July 5 has been very favorable to crops,
the high temperature being especially fa
vorable to corn. -In the southern states the
conditions have been less favorable, the
excesaive heat and absence of rainfall prov
ing injurious to moat crops. On the Pacinie
coast the week bas been favorable. In the
principal corn states of central valleys oorn
has made rapid growth, but in the southern
states it is suffering for rain, in some seo
tions seriously. Excessive rains in Missouri
have retarded cultivation and the crag is
still backward in Minnesota. In Texas,'
while the late crop is -suffering troen
drought, heearly planted is matured and
