Fourth of July Services at Honolulu Interrupted by the Break of a Crank. He Stirred Up a Matter Which Is Desired to be Forgotten. Ha Was Promptly Rebuked by the Silence of His Au- i dlence. By the Associated Press. Vickobia, B. C, July 13. The steam chip Miowera arrived from Australia and Hawaii this afternoon. Literary exercises at Honolulu .on July 4 were the scene of a remarkable incident. Joseph Cook of Boston, was invited to speak and entered upon a personal criticism of President Cleveland, charging him with misrepresenting Hawaii and Hawaiian affairs. He was interrupted by Minister Willis, who presided, and after a short cross fire of charges and retorts, Cook left the ball amid silence. His action is looked upon as indiscreet. Mr. Willis, the American minister, presided at the literary exercises. When President Dole entered with Mrs. Dole, the audience rose to its feet and there were cheers. In opening the meeting Mr. Willis gracefully gave atterance to patriotic sentiments and was applauded. In quite complimentary terms Mr. Willis presented Joseph Cook who was on the program for an address. Mr. Cook had chosan for hie subject, "Re publics of the Tropics." He said noth inz of the Fourth of July. He repeated that when the crown fell it was pulver ized. He congratulated all that there was no color line or slavery line here. The speaker then went into a disserta tion on southern republics as upheld by what thgv call northern principles Coming quickly to Hawaii, Mr. Cnok entered noon an almost direct criticism of the Cleveland administration, ar raigning it for misrepresentation and saying that he would makesomecorrec lions. Here Mr. Willis protested on the ground that the occasion was not one for a political speech. He was greeted with storms of applause. Mr, Conk considerably confused asked fcr a bill of particulars and declared that he Goldberg Bros our Mr. A.Uroldberg( Advertise. Store was not accustomed to either a straight jacket or a gag. Mr. Willis replied tnat he bad con' tracted his sentiment from Boston envir onments; that he was not broad enough for an American celebration in Hawaii Mr. Cook said Boston had a good deal to do with achieving American inde pendence. Mr. Willie eaid this was granted and that all were proud of it. The lecturer quickly concluded his ad dress with a few remarks on annexa tion. He bade good bye to Minister Willis and Kev. Dr. MacArthur and left the hall amid silence, clearly mad through and through. The exchange of words created tre mendous excitement among those pres ent and when the Miowera sailed it was still the one single topic of con versation. After the exercises manv citizens advanced to shake the hand of the American minister and he was given an ovation. Fifty of the rebel prisoners, all Da tives, were pardoned on the Fourth by President Dole. .None of the rmglead era were given their freedom. DORRINGTON OBEYS.

The New and Supplemental Bond Includes Nearly Half the Amount of the Original One. Receiver McMillan of the Peoria Canal company, yesterday filed his amended bond in the office of the dis trict clerk and it was approved. There is something interesting in the slump of the original bond. As soon as threats of the $200,000 suit against the receiver were made by the Crowley- Daugherty people, the bondsmen fear ing lisp endens proceedings more per haps than the finding of an ultimate judgment against them, hastened to shake off their responsibility. The big $442,000 bond therefore began falling off, thousands at a time. The receiver who was at Gila Bend, having been ap prised of the new .movement, hastened to Phoenix and on his arrival found a hole in the bond of $135,000 which re minded him painfully of the gap in the great dam after that freshet two years ago. He went to the weakened, weakening and firm bondsmen and explained to them that in the first place the threat ened suit was without foundation, that the allegations upon which it would be based, a disobedience of the orders of the court and a departure from the plans and specifications of the engi neers in the construction of the dam, were untrue. Bnt if . they vffr true, a breaking away at that juncture would avail nothing. The bondsmen would any how be held responsible for the past acts of the receiver, and though suit were onlv made against those who re mained on the bond, and if judgment were obtained and execution made against them, they could in turn fall back upon the partners of their re sponsibility during the period of the receiver's past alleged mismanagement. The only advantaee in leaving the bond would be to avoid responsibility for his possible future mistakes. This sort of argument had the effect not only of stopping the stampede of the bondsmen but of bringing back $75,000 of the bond which had already been stampeded.. In the new bond there therefore is included $205,000 of the old; $211,500 furnished by thirty-eight men is new. There are included altogether in the bond filed and approved yesterday fifty- nine names. HELD FOR FORGERY. U.S. Metzler in Jail onaSeri ous Charge.

The Development of a Quarry Dis covered Three Year3 Ago on the Banks of the Hassayampa. Arizona yesterday contributed to the market a product never before sent out from any state, territory or other po litical or geographical division on the western continent. A shipment was made of 1,000 pounds of lithograph stone to the Los Angeles Lithographic company. The stone was discovered nearly three years ago, has been submitted to the severest tests and has been pro nounced by experts to be equal in grain, we.ll, not in grain, for litho graph stone can have no grain, bnt rather in fiber and every other good quality, to the German stone which has neretoiore enjoyed a monopoly in the market. The vein from which it was taken lies about three miles from Bumble Bee station. It was discovered by K. Waldin. Edward Marlowe and David Cole. Local tests proved satisfactory and it was submitted to various litho graphing establishments. The samples were taken from near the enrface and while the judgment was that the stone was genuine there were defects enp posed to be due solely to the proximity to the surface and which would proba bly disappear as the excavation pro ceeded. Mr. Waldin took a sample of the Btone to tne world's fair, intending it to be placed in the exposition. Be fore so disposing of it it was prepared for exhibition by a Chicago lithograph ing firm and was submitted to the Puck people who pronounced it equal to the best German stone. There was a mis understanding by which it failed to ap pear in the exposition at all and the only award was made to a German product. One of the judares afterward wrote an explanatory letter to Mr. ' Waldin expressing regret and saying that it had since been unofficially as certained that the Arizona product was worthy of an award. Nothing was -immediately afterward done with the quarry, though the owners were now certain that they bad what had been sought for in many parts oi the world and had been found in but one. Mr. Cole afterward sold his itterest to C. E. Goddard, who lately trans ferred it to Mr. Waldin. Since then work has been actively goiniton in the quarry. The vein is an extensive one and work UDon it veri fies the prediction that surface defects would disappear. The commercial value of the stone is about 13 cents a pound and the demand since the first stone was discovered has always ex ceeded the supply. INDUSTRIAL GROWTH.
