The Natives Promised Restora tion of the Monarchy. Queen LII's Niece Now Enjoying the Protection of the British Gov ernment, to Be Queen. By the Associated Press. San Francisco, May 6. Advices per the steamer Gaelic, Honolulu, April 29. Minister Hatch received a com munication from Secretary Gresham through United States Minister Willis in regard to naturalized Hawaiiane ap plying for the protection of the United States. The communication deals with the case or J. t . Bowler, who was con victed on a charge of treason in connec tion with the recent rebellion, Mr. Greaham stated that the United States government cannot interfere from the fact that Bowler had taken the oath of allegiance required for be coming a citizen. Evidence in hand shows that British influence is at work in Hawaii. The natives are in a state of expectancy and word has been passed quietly among them that within a short space of time restoration would be a iact. In that event Kaiulani will be made queen. Bishop Welles, head of the British church, and British Consul Haws, are said to be giving this information to the natives. This renewed hope on the part of the natives has given the an nexation movement a severe eetback. The government has received no word from Secretary Gresham regarding Minister Thurston's alleged recall. Kumors of an impending revolution are still rife and the stories are of such a nature that no little fear is felt in gov ernment circles. DRUNKEN FINANCES.

HE LIKED PHCENIX. Adolph Busch of the Great St. Louis Brewery Takes a Drive. A noted visitor in Phoenix yesterday was Adolph Busch of St. Louis, son of the elder Busch of thejgreat Anheueer Busch Brewing company. After at tending to a stream of business in the morning, which included the visiting of all the depots where the famous St. Louis product is handled, he etijeyed under the guidance and as the guest of Hans Herlick, the local agent of the company, a drive into the country. The ranch of Col. Cotton was visited and his orange and lemon trees, which are about to yield their first crop, duly inspected. Upon returning Mr. Busch expressed himself as delighted with all that he had seen. It was a treat, he said, to reach Phoenix after a dreary wandering oi a couple ot weeks past which in eluded such places as Springer, N. M. and Fort Huachuca, Ariz. In fact, he was so immensely pleased with all and so profoundly lmoressed with the bril hant prospects of the valley that he expressed the opinion that there was no place in the country in which he would prefer to settle and live.

A Council Meeting Last Night Which Ought to Have Been At tended by Every Phcenlcan. The last regular meeting of the pres ent city council was held last night. The monthly routine business was transacted, annual reports of the various officials were read and the body adjourned to next Thursday night when the vote at the city election will be officially canvassed, and Mayor Moni tion and Conncilmen Goldberg and Lacy will retire to private life. If every voter in Phoenix had been present at last night'i meeting every vote cast today would be cast for the Republican ticket. It lea pity that the Republican campaign management didn't think of this and arrange for the meeting to be held in the assembly hall and thus close the campaign. The showing made by the reports would hare convincedthe honest and intelligent voter that tb.e city had done well in Republican hands, better than it had done before in other hands, and that would have been the strongest possible argument for the continuance of the Republican party in charge. It would not have required any com ment or explanation to show this. The figures alone on one hand would have been sufficient, taken in connection with the improvements and reforms of which all are cognizant. The city's receipts for the vear have oeen $-n,uuu. xrts council has ex pended $42,000. The larger part of this sum has gone for the payment of current expenses, but about $15,000 has been spent: in public improvements and $6,000 has been paid in interest on bonds and for the reduction of the floating indebtedness. Under the head of improvements may be mentioned the additions to the fire department, in which $6,000 has been expended ; in grading streets, $3,000 ; in street cross ings, $1,000; in extra lights, $700, and in tbe badly needed Center Btreet un derground flume wtiicb. lurniBhes a solution for a bad smelling problem with which successive councils have been confronted, $500. Not less than $1,400 has been spent in taking care of hobos, an item of expense during the past year tenfold greater than ever be fore. The council has done something else better understood by laborers who have had municipal employment. City warrants have been raised from .95 to par, thus redeeming a pre-election pledge that every dollar paid a laborer employed by the city should be worth a dollar. And this leads to another saving this council has effected. By reason of the fact that the warrants have been below par it has been necessary to maintain an extraordinarily large urgency fund. This has been wiped out because it is no longer necessary to maintain it. It has been devoted to the redemption of outstanding warrants thus saving an nually to the city $400. The floating debt was reduced by $4,0C0 last night. In short it is shown bo clearly that it cannot be contradicted that the present city administration has done every thing that the Republican party a year pledged it to do. It has in fact done more and has left the city in such shape that another Republican administra tion by the grace of the people today may take up the work and go on with out a hitch. LEFT HOME FOREVER. Departure of the Congregation of the Washington St. Church. Never again will worshippers of the Washington street M. E. church meet on Sunday, for never again on Sunday will there be a Washington street M. E. church. The services last Sunday were, therefore, made appropriate to tbe incident of a final departure from a home in whicn a large family had grown up, and which had been sold to strangers and was about to be razed to the ground. There was naturally much sentiment in the services. The old church was tastily and gaily decked in flowers ; the music was selected with reference to the occasion and the ser mon was of the nature of a leavetaking. It was proper that the services should consist in part of the history of the church and it is a history of success. A church society was started twenty- one vears ago by xtev. G. A. Keeder, but it was not until six years later that a pastor came. In 1881 the site about to be vacated was bought for $3,000 ; it was sold a few montns ago to Dr. J. M Ford for $15,000. The membership of the church at the beginning was four; last Sunday it was 300. Ministers have been over the church in the following order: G. F. Bovard, G. L. Pearson, D. W. Calfee, D. Battin, N. F. Norton, D. F. Howe and G. L. Pearson. The church has purchased a site for a new church at the corner of Monroe street and Second avenue. Plans have been prepared for a $25,000 stone structure and work will be commenced on it within a month. In the mean time tho congregation will worship in the opera house. The young people of the church will tonight bid the old structure a last fare well. They will give a rose social which will embrace the greatest possi ble collection of flowers. Refresh ments will also be served and tbe last night of the Washington street church will be its merriest. Its demolition will begin tomorrow and in its place will rise a modern hotel building. A NEW VETERINARIAN. Dr. Richmond Succeeds Dr. Nor ton. Dr. F. 0. Richmond was yesterday appointed territorial veterinary sur geon to succeed Dr. J. C Norton whose term has expired. Dr. Richmond is a veterinarian of several years' standing and of thorough scientific training and during his residence in the valley has enjoyed a large and successful practice. He comes into the office under the most favorable circumstances created by his predecessor, Dr. Norton, whose constant attention to his duties has re sulted in the establishment of a thor ough system, under which the stock men of the territory are working. Within the past two years the territory has narrowly escaped two or three scourges. Glanders, which had se cured a foothold in the eastern end of the Salt River valley, had been wiped out. A little more than a year ago the stock interests of the valley were threatened with tuberculosis, but by prompt action it was confined to tbe herd in which it was discovered and has been practically eradicated. HIS BOOTS HIS RUIN. An Indian Handicapped In a Flight From Justice. Pablo, an Indian, stole a hat on Sun day from Engineer Jackson at Lount's ice factory. He was captured shortly afterward by Constable McClintock. On the way to jail he surprised the of ficer by darting down an alley and get ting out of sight around a corner. But a pair of high heeled boots, too big for him and probably stolen, proved his ruin. He stopped to pull them off and the constable was upon him. He was brought before Justice Kincaid yester day for trial. He carried with him all his worldly effects, a coat, tbe boots, several pairs ot overalls, etc. tie was afraid to leave them in jail because Little Henry is a prisoner there, or else he thought that in case of his acquittal he could proceed directly to the reser vation. He was sent to jail for fifteen days. DEATH OF CAPT. GROVE. He Had Spent a Half a Century on the Coast. Capt.W. H. Grove of the Castle Creek hot springs, died in this city last Sun day. The cause was a paralvtic stroke. The infliction came two weeks before his death and last Saturday, accom panied by his wife he came to Phoenix undergo medical treatment. The funeral will take place tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock from the corner of Seventh and Van Buren streets. The deceased was a native of Virginia and was 75 years of age. He has lived in the west almost since his youth and served through the Mexican war which in which he rose to the rank of captaih. At the ciose of the war he settled in California but hEs been a resident of Arizona for nearly twenty years. For the past six years he has been engaged in the hotel business at Hot Springs. A wife and two daughters survive him. Rudyard Kipling to Revisit India. Mcreh interest will be felt by the pub lic ir. the return of Rudyard Kinlmg to India. He has jast agreed to furnish a regular contribution to The Cosmopoli tan Magazine for the coming year, be ginning his work upon his return tQ i India. India has never been critically considered by such a pen as Kipling's, and what he will write for The Cosmo politan will attract the widest atten tion, both here and in England. Perhaps the most beautiful eeries of pictures ever presented of the Rocky mountains will be found in a collection of fourteen original paintings, executed by Thomas Moran for the ftiay Cosmo politan. To those who have been in the Rockies, this iesue of the Cosmo politan will be a souvenir worthy of preservation. This number contains fifty-t.7,o original drawings by Thomas Moran, Oliver Herford, Dan Beard, H. M. Eaton, F. G. Attwood, F. O. Small, F. Lix, J. H. Dolph and Rosina Em mett Sherwood, besides six reproduc tions of famous recent works of art, and forty other interestin? illustrations ninety-eight in all. Though the Cos mopolitan sells for but 15 cents, prob ably no magazine in the world will present for May so great a number of illustrations specially designed for its pages by famous illustrators. The fic tion in this number is by F. Hopkinson Smith, Gustave Kobbe, W. Clark Rus sell, Edgar W. Nye and T. C. Crawford. ELECTION EVE. A Quiet but Earnest City Campaign. A Ticket Without Spot Or Blemish. The Members of the New Re publican Administration. Men of Acknowledged Ability, Ex perience, Trainlngand Unim peachable Honesty. The quietest municipal campaign in Phoenix for years closed last night. There had been no brass band nor torchlights. There had been no in veigling of voters with, liquor or cigars. There had been no speeches or none of the incidents of a red-hot political con test. The closing was as quiet. There was a reason for this. Tbe Republicans have been content and proud to point to a year's record, to an improved and crescent city and to tbe fulfillment of every pledge made a year ago. The Democrats had no recent record to which they might refer. The last one was buried two years ago and it was not in good condition at the time of in terment. ' Bat a great deal of earnest work has been done. Every voter in the city has been button-holed and invoked. From the night the Republican ticket was put in the field it has thrived and grown stronger. The Democratic ticket on the contrary has gradually grown weaker and its defects have become more apparent. The people whose ears have not been assailed by braes bands and whose eyes have not been blinded by the glare of torch lights, have had more time for solid thinking and they have thought that this is not a proper time to change the management of public affaire. Aside from the piestige given- the Re publican ticket by the success of the Re publican administration, the personnel of the new ticket invite;-confidence. Pierce Evans is a natural eeleetien for mayor. A trained lawyer and at. man of wide and successful experience in the great , nort west, the. Sound country, has numerous advantages as-, the candidate for the government of a wide awake town which wishes to emulate the growth and greatness of Buch cities as Seattle, Tacoma and. Spokane. He is also a gentleman wboBe personality invites political sup port. L. J. Wood tor assessor and tax col lector, need have done nothing. He could have lain back on his oars and pointed to his record. That would have carried him through if he could offer no other inducement for sop port. His popularity will only ewell the majority. And there is T. A. Jobs for recorder. The only question asked concerning hie candidacy has been, "What will his majority be?" The man who would vote against so good a fellow as Jobs would be ridden on a rail if the popu lace should find it out. Only one thing conld prevent the election of Billy Widmer today, and that would be the unlikely event of the postponement of tbe city election to some other day. His admirable record as a peace officer and a friendly man ner, his long residence in the city, every day of which has made him friends, are his campaigners. There is hardly anything in the way of an office that he would ask for that Phoenix would not give him. It is superfluous to say anything of I. M. Christy, the present and the next city treasurer. The confidence of the people in him has been twice ex pressed and he has never forfeited a jot of it. They only regret that the treasury is not larger and that they might trust more to his management and integrity. Speaking ot the solid men and men in whom people have confidence there's John Dennis candidate for the council from the First word. He is a success ful man. He has shown himself to be a capable manager of his own business' and that is tbe kind of a man the peo ple naturally want to manage thfcirs. Assurance is given that at the end of hie term Phoenix will congratulate him and herself that he occupied a place in the council during the time that a solid and business-like council was a neces sity. Frank Peck, the next councilman from the Third ward, is not inexperi- enced in public affairs. He has a rec ord of having mude the office cf the board of supervisors curing his incum bency the most orderly end systematic in the territory. Democrats as well as. Republicans describe it during his time as a model office. He is also a young man of naturally fine business instincts to which good judgment and training; have given direction. A necessary qualification of an office? holder is absolute honesty and no man can impeach the integrity of any man whom Cue Republkt.ua have etieeted for a place on the ticket.
