~ MR. WILLIS' ACTION
6aVod Frosidont Olovoland Frorr Committing a Grave Error AND GAVE MR. BLOUNT fl BLACK EY[ Why Thumton Wont to lloiiolalu?Ii AVujj ut (ho Itcqucut of Democratic ami llepubllcan Senators to Have ft Itepublio Dcclarod and Stop tlx President's KfToris to Enthrouo th< Qucon?Au Attempt by Dotuoorati in tho IIouso to Stnotlior Invest! gation ot tho Hawaiian (Question Washington, D. C., Doc, 24.?Everi dav louiathinif leaks out in connoclioi Willi tho Kroat international quostioi involving tho United Statos and Hawaii tljo diplomatic acta bearing upon whicl have held tho world in auo for book time. Tho latest story is that Ministei Thurston's Murrioa aoparturo was a re suit o! a conference between him and i number ol leading Democratic Senators who begged him forheavon's andClcve laud's ?uko to hurry to Honolulu a fast aa rail>vava and ehipa could carr; birn and urge his associates lo deelari I rapublic at once that the l'reaidon mijlit have no further opportunity ti in- .t upou hia policy of restoring tin Queen. it is alleged that other I'ornocrat null certain Republics na bad confer encfls with Mr. Thuraton proviojis to hi depariuru. which load them to feol aa lor iJ that the minister will carefull; collect every detail of the visit of "I'aro mount lilount," ai woll as tho acts o Jlinistor Willis undor his original in [traction*, and will cause all of tho in formal ion secured to be placed at tlx disposal of any committee of Congresj which promises a full and fair iavesti gation. GttES 1UM WAS EMBARRASSED. While tho movements of both ot th* agents of the Government have boon t< some extent made known by unollicis communications from Honolulu, a well as their own roports, it is believoi that much remains behind, and at an; jute that whatsoever is vital to tho mat ter should bo formally sought out an< communicated to the investigators in i way which will leave no doubt that it i. Iruo to word and letter. An official of the Government, wh< for venrs has had much to do with iiu portunt actions of tho state department siid to tho correspondent: "Diplo inatically speaking, tho administratis is out of the Hawaiian revolution. Min ister Willis is to tho Sandwich Islandi juat what any other minister ia toanj email country to which ho may be ac crelitod. He will assume no farthei authority. He is without a specia mission "at this moment. "Juat as annexation is dead as anj movement to replace the queen on he: throne is dead. I happen to know thi contonts of .some of tho dispatches fron Willis, which were not transmitted t< Congress with the President's message One telegram from Gresham to Willie which wa.n read to Congress, said 'youi (Willis') dispatch is somowhat embar rasflinjj. MI.VIHTBR WILLIS* GOOD SENSE. "The truth is, every communciatioi received from Willis has been ombar racing and distressingly so. bent t< Honolulu to carry out an administra tion policy ba3ed on the Blount report Willis has given Blount a black eye a every turn, and his every report ha been" in opposition to the administra tion's policy. One of the strange auti in connection with the course of thi President is tho acceptance of tho ro equation of Blount "If Blount's report was true why wanot Blount kept at Uonoluiu to enforfci the policy of tho administration am right the great wrong? Ho was th< logical agent for the business. It i; possible that Blount was so mucT ashamed of his owif work that ho re f'lned to carry it farther. You seo there are many things connected with tnn etrango performance which at yot have been hardly touched upon. I tee there nre hints abroad that Willis is to b< recalled. If I were President Cleve land 1 think I should recall him am promote him to one of the highesi Ministerial positions within the gift o: tho government. "He has savod the administratioi from one of the most ridiculous errori ever made by a civilized government and deserves the heartieBt thanks an( tho highest esteem of Democrats ant Hepublicans alike. I am told that tin committee of foreign relations oi tin Senate intend to go to the bottom o the matter, both as to tho acts of Presi dent Harrison and Stevens and Cleve land and Blount. I sincerely hope the] will do so. It may humiliate some veri estimable but mistaken persons, but i will teach futuro President that this ii u government of the people as repre touted in other branches bonidos th? exocutivo, and that tho President can Hot safely perpetrate a single act whicl suggests an assumption of dictatorial power." There is increasing gossip in regard tc the sharp contrast betwoen the treat mont of tho Hawaiian affair in the houso and that in tho sonato. A vasi amount of grumbling is heard aiuon* the rank and file of the house Deuioc racy on account of tho proposition tc smother all investigation of the acts 01 Clevoland and Blount and at the same time raise a groat howl and cry agflins Harrison and Stevens and Blaine.

Pittsbueoh/Pa., Dec. 21.?Fleishman <t Ca'a oxtensive department stores at 504-508 Market streot wero closed by the sheriff at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon on executions aggregating $100,173 28. . The seizure caused great excitement in tho downtown shipping district, and 5 the sheriff's deputy had acarcely cloied i the doors of the establishment until a f pushing, jostling crowd tilled Market street 1'roiu Liberty to Fifth avenue. In> aido the atoro tho surprise waa oven j greater. Immediately the doors were locked . tho departments to stop tho sale of goods. Tho pooplo at lirat did not understand, and sortie were inclined to r make trouble at having thoir Christinas i shopping ho rudely interrupted. As ! soon as the usual notices woro posted on tho doors worooponod and those in' side allowod to pa*a out. Tho clerks 1 woro then set to work to replace the 3 goods lying on tho counter*, and an hour later the store was in darkneoa . aud the entrance blockod by a high iron fence. Tho firm is composed of S. L. Fleishi man and B. May. Thov havo been in business for tho past six years, and were j | rated umong the moat successful and solid Grnii in the city. Mr. Fleishman 8 has been a merchant iu Pittsburgh for v over twenty yoars. j uuiu a wook ago mo urm nau 110 luea that they wore in any special danger, though they realized that on account of the difficulty of making collections tho 3 situation was serious. At that time soverul creditors caine forward with 9_ claims which, by haru work, wore mot in full. Tho following day more claims were probated, which wore paid. Though somewhat embarrassed by [ these sudden deuiauds, it was thought they could pull through it only conQdonee oould bo rotainod. But somehow a rumor cot abroad that Fleishman <fc Co. wero embarrassed, and in some unaccountable way this rumor quickly spread through tho east, where tho firm largely dealt. It ia said both Mr. Fleishman and Mr. May placed their entire private for0 tunes in tho breach hoping to stay tho 3 tido of disaster, hut claims poured in so fast that all could not bo met, and confidential obligations woro given tho 3 preference, llopo was not abandoned 1 till two days aso. when it was seen that f it would bo useless to struggle longer, and tho inevitable executions which came yostorday afternoon wero calmly awaited. No Pittsburg housos aro involved to any extent, and none of tho claims aro largo enough to embarrass any of their eastern creditors. AGKICULTUIt.lli WAGES. Farming In tho South?Reports l-'roui North Carolina. Raleigh, N. C., Dec. 24.?Tho state commissioner of labor stati.ilica has rej" ceivod roports from all over tho state 1 showing tho following interesting facts: Average wages of farm laborers in North Carolina, for men, $8 per month; lor women, $5; for children $3, and "rations" and houso room. Most of the farm labor is done by tenants, however, "on shares." In case tho owner of tho land "furnishes everything" (that is horses, land, farm implements, house, etc., but not rations) the tonant gets one-fourth of the crop he makes. If the tonant furnishes and feeds his team and implements, ho gets one-half. 1 In most cases farm labor, which is ino9t whollv black, is ruportod to bo uuiplo iu quantity. About half tho reJ porta stato that land has decreased in - value during the last fivo yearn. Tho , tendency is toward smaller farms and t bettor cultivation. Tho bulk of farmb era have made improvements and tho - fertility of tho land is maintained. 9 There ia a noticeable improvement in 3 the mode of farming ail over tho state.
