A Cabinet Crisis Develops at
The American Treaty the Cause
of the Trouble.
Consul Sewall Takes Formal Posses
sion of Pago Pago.
Ex-Minister Ashford Accuses His Ha
waiian Colleagues of Conspiring to
Overthrow the Government.
Associated Press Dispatches. I
San Franci§co, July s.—The steam
skip Mariposa arrived today, twenty-five
days from Sydney and seven days from
Honolulu. Hawaiian advices state that
on June 11th King Kalakaua appointed
John Adams Cummins minister of for
eign affairs, vice Jonathan Austin, re
signed; Godfrey Brown, minister of
finance, vice S. M. Damon, resigned;
Charles N. Spencer, minister of the in
terior, vice Lorin A. Thurston, resigned ;
and Arthur P. Peterson, attorney-gen
eral, vice C. W. Ashford,
On Friday June 13th Noble Widemann
introduced a resolution in the legisla
ture declaring that whereas it was ap
parent that the constitutional advisers
of the king were irreconcilably divided
against themselves and it being impos
sible to heal the dissension in a manner
conducive to the best interests of the
kingdom, except by the dissolution of
the cabinet, it was resolved that the as
sembly mark its dissatisfaction with the
existing state of affairs by declaring a
want of confidence in the ministry.
Previous to the introduction of the
message Minister Austin replied to the
charges made against him in the ma
jority report of the committee on foreign
affairs, which have been heretofore re
ferred to in these dispatches,denying that
he disobeyed the instructions of the
house to lay before it documents regard
ing a proposed treaty with the United
Stateß, or that he had abstracted im
portant documents in relation to the
matter, on the plea that they were per
sonal communications.
On the introduction of the resolution,
Representative Brown stated that there
was a greater principle at stake than the
integrity of the ministry, namely, that
the minority should not rule, and
offered amendatory resolutions declar
ing that whereas Minister Ashford
had advised the king to refuse
to follow the advice of the major
ity of the cabinet, which advice of the
attorney-general the supreme court
passed upon and declared illegal and un
constitutional, and whereas the attor
ney-general had persisted in his advice
to the king, it was resolved that such
assertion of the principle of the right of
the minority to rule was subversive of a
constitutional representative govern
ment, and that the action of the attor
ney-general was deserving of the sever
est censure and condemnation of the
house, which did thereby declare its
lack of confidence in him. A proti acted
and warm debate followed, in which the
attorney-general and some members of
the legislature took the ground that that
body could get rid of one member of the
ministry only by passing a vote of want
of confidence in the whole cabinet. The
▼ote on Brown's amendment resulted 24
to 24, a tie vote, all elective members of
the house, including the president, vot
ing. The cabinet, however, promptly
During the proceedings of the legisla
ture on June 9th Minister Ashford, ris
ing to a question of privilege, stated
that he wished to answer the charges
made against him by the minister of the
interior of connivance with the insurrec
tion of last April. He claimed that the
insurrection of 1887, planned by W. R.
Wilcox, was only a continuance of the
scheme of the ministry to replace the
king on the throne by his sister, Prin
cess Kiliuokalani, and that the ministry
was to blame for that insurrection.
Notwithstanding rumors of impending
trouble, there was not even sufficient
ammunition available for ordinary use.
if it had not been possible to obtain
10,000 rounds from the United States
steamer Adams, then in the harbor, the
insurrection would have been success
ful. He claims that when it was voted
to put the proposed treaty with the
United States through the king
was not to know all the
facts of the treaty. The clause re
lating to the landing of foreign
troops on Hawaiian soil was annexed to
the draft of the treaty, and when the
draft was left with the king the annexed
clause which he claimed was to have
been removed, remained through over
sight affixed to the treaty, and the king
rejected it. Minister Ashford charged
the other members of the cabinet with
Minister Thurston entered a general
denial of Ashford's statements, both as
regards the counter-charges against him
self or concerning the cabinet's action in
regard to the treaty.
On the following day, June 10th, Rep
resentative Wilcox made a statement in
the legislature as to his part in the in
surrection, He claimed that a society
was organized with the motto "Hawaii
for Hawaiians," 'whose object was by
peaceful methods to secure to the na
tives the right to represent the govern
ment in official positions. When the
purposes of the organization became
known, a party went to the
king and asked him to abdicate
in favor of Princess Kiliuoalani, as
discontent was prevalent among the
people on account of the opium scandal
and other occurrences. Wilcox con
tended that prior to this the ministry
had been conspiring against the king
and in favor of a republic, and that the
spokesman of the party was, at the time
the request was made to the king, in
the employ of certain of the ministers.
A minority report of the committe on
foreign relations was presented to the
legislature by Representative Baldwin
on June 14th." The report says that the
committee had not at the time the ma
jority report was presented (June 4th)
fully investigated the conduct of Minis
ter Austin in regard to his alleged re
fusal to lay all the correspondence touch
ing on the treaty before the house. The
minority states that it found the minis
ter ready to show all the minutes of the
cabinet meetings, and the letter which
formed the basis of the major
ity report's complaint. The let
ter contained but one brief
allusion to the treaty and the minutes
of the cabinet meetings were equally
meagre as to that particular. The re
port gives the text of the proposed
treaty, and states that King Kalakaua
in December, 1889, refused to sign an
authorization for Minister Carter to ne
gotiate the treaty, as it had been drawn
up without consulting him.
On the return of Minister Ashford
from a private trip to Canada the latter
demurred to the text of the treaty,
which was so amended as to make it a
commercial treaty. At the cabinet
council on April 10, 2890, the king was
advised by the ministry to sign a corn-
mission authorizing Carter to negotiate
the treaty on such a basis; but the king,
acting on Attorney-General Ashford's
advice, again declined.
Consul-Geaasral Sewall Takes Formal
Possession of l'ag-o Pago.
Apia, June 17th (per steamer Mari
posa to San Francisco). —The United
States steamer Mohican, with Consul-
General Sewall aboard, visited Pago
Pago several weeks ago, and took for
mal possession of the two pieces of land
there which were ceded to the United
States by the Samoan government.
King Malietoa received his first salute
on May 22d. He visited the United
States steamer Mohican in the new
whale boat recently presented to Chief
Sewmann Tafa by the American govern
ment. The king" remained on the man
of-war half an hour, and as he left the
Samoan flag was raised at the mast and
a royal salute of twenty-one guns was
fired in his honor. Malietoa also visited
the German man-of-war Alexandrine a
few days later, and was given a similar

Sbepard, of the Mohican, and Consul-
General Sewall paid a visit to King Mai.
iatoa, and on behalf of the United
States government formally presented
him with the wrecks of the Trenton and
Vandalia, which have been lying in
Apia harbor ever since the disastrous
hurricane in March, 1889. Captain
Shepard read a letter in which he sug
gested that the king authorize the
United States consul-general to appoint
a trustee to negotiate for the sale of the
property and to superintend the appli
cation of the proceeds to the payment of
the taxes of the natives. Mr. Sewall
also made an address, in which he re
viewed the heroic conduct of the Sa
moans during the hurricane, and ex
pressed the gratitude of the American
people, and their wish for lasting peace
and prosperity to the new government
of Samoa.
Malietoa expressed the deepest grati
tude for the gift. Consul-General
Sewall has appointed ex-Vice-Consul
Blockwell as trustee to negotiate for the
sale of the wrecks and the disposition of
the funds.
The strained relations which existed
between the American and German rep
resentatives during the troublesome
times preceding the return of the present
king and the establishment of the new
government are rapidly passing away,
and a more cordial feeling is shown
among the representatives of the two
governments who are now stationed
Twenty-Four Smuggled Chinese Ordered
Sent Back to China—They Wiih to
Return to Sonora.
Washington, July s.—Acting Secre
tary Batcheller has issued the following
instructions in regard to re-entry into
the United States of Chinese after a
visit to China:
First. Chinamen who are laborers
are, under the exclusion act of October
1, 1888, absolutely debarred from land
ing in the United States unless it be for
transit across United States territory
under the department regulations of
July, September and December, 1889.
Second. Chinamen who are not labor
ers and who may have heretofore resided
in the United States are not prevented
by the existing law or treaty from re
turning to the United States after visit
ing China or elsewhere. No certificates
or other papers, however, are issued
either by the department or any of its
subordinate officers to show that they are
entitled to land in the United States,
but it is suggested that such persons
should, before leaving the United States,
provide themselves with such proofs of
identity as may be deemed proper show
ing they have been residents of the
United States and that they are not
laborers, so they can present the same
to and be identifid by the collector of
customs at the port where they may
Third. Chinese persons not laborers
who may come to the United States for
the first time, are only intitled to land
upon compliance with sections 3 of the
act of July 5, 1884, which prescribes that
such persons "shall obtain permission of
and be identified as so entitled by the
Chinese government or such other for
eign government of which at the time
such Chinese persons shall be subject,
in such case to be evidenced by a certi
ficate issued by such government. The
certificate shall be in the English
language and shall show such permis
sion with the name of the benefitted
person in his or her proper signature,"
Twenty-Four Contraband Chinese Or
dered Returned to China.
Tucson. Ariz., July 5. —United States
Commissioner Hughes today gave judg
ment in the cases of twenty-four Chinese,
charged with violating the exclusion act,
and ordered that they be returned to the
custody of the United States marshal
of Arizona, to be by him de
livered to the collector of the port of
San Francisco, to be returned to China.
The counsel for the Chinese argued that
they be returned to|Sonora, Mexico, hav
ing landed at Guaymas and entered the
United States from Sonora. The evi
dence shows that they had made one
continuous trip from China, via San
Francisco harbor, Guaymas and Sonora,
into the United States. The counsel
for the Chinese applied for a writ of
habeas corpus before Judge Kibby at
Phoenix, as Judge Sloan, of this district,
is absent from the territory.

Associated Press Dispatches. I
Victoria, July s.—News has been tel
egraphed from Port Townsend that a
special messenger has arrived from
Washington with instructions for the
commanders of the United States cut
ters to proceed to Bering sea and seize
all vessels found with any evidence of
having been engaged in seal fishing.
To-day a story leaked out that two clip
per schooners are being secretly fitted
out in Maple bay especially to meet the
Yankees. It is said that the vessels
each carry a heavy swivel besides two
smaller guns, and, disguised as sealers,
will resist seizure so as to bring on an
encounter. Captain Scott, a veteran
sealer, says that the skippers of the two
vessels, in which he is interested have
armed their crews.
Several Features of the Proposed Bill
Discussed Informally.
Washington, July 5. —The Republican
members of the conference committee
on the silver bill were in conference to
day. It was the intention to hold a
regular conference, but Representative
Bland, ef the house conferees, and Sen
ator Harris, of the senate conferees,
were absent. The principal topic dis
cussed, it is understood, was in regard
to the amount of silver to be purchased
monthly—whether it shall be 4,500,000
ounces or $4,500,000 worth. The propo
sition to strike out the bullion redemp
tion feature was also the subject of some
discussion. No final decision on either
point was arrived at.
He Could Not Make Second Payments
on Large Real Estate Purchases.
Portland, July 5. —A Tacoma special
says: The mystery surrounding the
suicide of R. H. Passmore, cashier of the
Security Bank, has been cleared up.
Passmore had bought a large amount of
property and made the first payment
thereon, expecting a rapid increase in
value. This did not come, and the sec
ond payment falling due, he saw himself
liable to lose his entire fortune. This
so preyed upon his mind as to drive
him partially insane, and in this con
dition he killed himself.
The Chicago Stock Yards.
Boston, July 5. —F. H. Prince & Co.,
who arc understood to represent the
purchasers of the Chicago Stock Yards
and the transit railway, which were

Yards of Chicago, will remain in Amer
ica. The financial reorganization of the
company will be upon an American
basis, with a large majority of the new
securities owned in this country, and
the management will be American.

under date of April 22,89: "During the Bum

my stomach and liver hopelessly disordered.
Nothing I ate agreed with me. I took chron

despaired of by myfamily. The leading phy
sicians of the country were consulted, but
the medicines administered by them never
did me any permanent good, and I lingered
between life and death, the latter being pre
ferable to th» agonies I waß enduring. In
