Smith, who shall ad minister the executive departments of the government, the first named acting ac president and chairman of such coun cil and administering the department of foreign affaire, and the others severally administering tbe departments of in terior, finance and attorney-general, respectively, in the order in which enumerated, according to existing Haw aiian law as far as may be consistent with this proclamation, and also of an advisory council which shall consist of 14 members who are hereby declared to be S.

Such advisory coun cil shall also have general legislative authority. Such executive and advisory council shall, acting jointly, have power to remove any member of either council and to till each or any otber vacancy." VOLUNTEERS CALLED FOR. The new government then called for volunteers, who assembled armed, to tbe number of 500. The old government surrendered without striking a blow, although it had about 4UO men under arms and a battery of Ga ling guns. The new government then notified the foreign representatives of the change in government and asked recognition. It waa at once granted by all the powers but England. The provisional govern ment promised peace and requested all parties to continue in the government service except the following: Queen Lilioukolani, Charles B. Wilson, mar shal ; Samuel Parker, minister of for eign «ffairs; W. H. Cornwell, minister of finance; John F. Colburn, minister of tbe interior; Arthur P. Peterson, at torney general. The new government has assumed formal control of the palace and bar racks. . THE QUEEN'S RETIREMENT, The ex-queen has retired to her priv ate residence at Washington place, and tbe government has granted her an honorary guard of 16 men. The house hold guards were paid off to February lit and disbanded. A strong force of volunteers took pos session and is now in charge of the pal ace, barracks, police headquarters and otber government buildings. At head quarters the work of military organiza tion was rapidly pushed forward, and volunteers continued to pour steadily in from all quarters. It is not exDected that any difficulty will arise upon the other islands. Tbe provisional government spent the day and a large part of the night in per fecting organization and adjusting the wheels of government to the changed order. Meantime the ordinary routine of government work is going ahead with bat little break. THE GOVERNING IDEA. Tbe governing idea of tbe provisional government is to maintain peace and carry on the business of the government nntil a treaty of annexation to the United States can be negotiated. Tbe Hawaiian steamer Claudine wae chartered and left Honolulu on the morning of Wednesday, 3 (.111,(1 Try If",'., with five commissioners aboard instruct ed to proceed to Washington and nego tiate a treaty of annexation. The com missioners are Lorrin A. Thurston, William C. Wilder, William R. Castle, Charles, L. Carter and Joseph Marsden. Tbe Claudine also brought up repre sentatives of the deposed queen. THIS ENVOYS TO WASHINGTON. Meeirs. Carter and Wilder Outline the Object of Their Mission. San Fbancisco, Jan. 28.—Charles L. Oarter, one of the commissioners to Washington, appointed by the provin cial government of Hawaii, made the following statement to the Associated Press: "The object of our visit to Washington is to have the United States take possession of the Hawaiian islands; we want to join the union, not as a state, however, but under a territorial or district form of government. A gov ernment like that of tbe District of Co lumbia, with the addition of a governor appointed by the president, is prefera ble for many reasons. There are so many Chinese and other cheap laborers on the islands, who cannot be trusted to vote intelligently, that if univereal suf frage is declared, tbe whites who repre eent almost the entire business interests of the country, would be out-voted and powerless. An entire new system of government must be built up, and the only way is to have the United States take charge. It must come to this or the whites must leave the islands. Their interests are too great, however, for them to give up without a struggle, and a revolution waa the result. "The new constitution, which wae brought out by the queen granted her almost absolute power and disfranchised the white voters. The nativeß them aelves, as a rule are not in lavor of the ex queen's plans. She is supported by • certain clique of about 20, who are anxious for political power. The queen ia jealous of the power of the whites, and ia an ambit ious, scheming woman, badly advised. Under the old regime she had no cause to complain. She enjoyed an income of between $75,000 and $100,000 • year, with no responsibility. But she undertook to mix in politics and got the worst of it. The queen was supported by her favorite, C. B. Wilson, marshal of the kingdom, and government troops. Wilson swore in a number of deputies, and in all the queen's forces amounted to about 400 men. The queen's plan waa a clever one, but she lacked the nerve to carry it out. She waited until after the legislature had adjourned, and then got 20 natives and dressed them np in long-tailed coate. She gave them a petition for a new constitution, which they did not understand. Everything went according to programme until the members of the cabinet requested to be dismissed. "The revolution was almost a bloodless one. Only one man was hurt, a native policeman, who was shot by Mr. Good. Good wae in charge of a wagon contain ing supplies of ammunition for the rev olutionists, and the police "ttempted to capture it. Good, who iB a man of great firmness and resolution, shot down one of the policemen and took the am munition to tbe place where it would do the most good—to tbe men who were resisting the queen. Fortunately there waa no necessity for a resort to arms, and further bloodshed was avoided." "Oar commission," continued Mr. Carter, "will call on the president and secretary of state at Washington, and wa will do our best to negotiate a treaty of annexation. We do not have tbe power to make such a treaty, but wil LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 29, 1893. have ts refer all si'eh matters to the provisional government at Honolulu." MR. WILDER'S BTATIMBNT. William C. Wilder, another of the commissioners, explained the situation of affairs to an Associated Press repre senative. Mr. Wilder is president of the Hawaiian Interisland Steamship comyany, and is heavily interested in Hawaiian property. He eaid : "If the United States wants the Hawaiian is lands she can have them now, and on terms more favorable than ever before offered, or than will ever be offered a«ain. All tbe Americans on the islands are a unit for annexation, and the new provisional government and its aims are supported by nearly all the English there, and all the Germans. Tho for eign interests in Hawaii amount to about $40,000,000, $30,000,000 of which is in the hands of Americans. Honolulu is as much an American city as San Fran cisco itself." "If the United States government should refuse to annex the islands, do you think Great Britain will step in and take poeseesinn?" was asked. "That question I can not answer," said Commissioner Wilder, "but this I do know, the qneen is strongly in favor of British rule; and, if allowed, would, I have no doubt, apply to Great Britain for protection." "Why was the British government the only one of the powers represented in Honolulu that did not recognize tbe pro visional government?" "that I do not know. England is represented on the islands by Commis sioner J. H. Woodhouee. He, in com mon with the other representatives, was notified of the change in the govern ment, but returned no answer to the communication. He may have changed his mind, however, aa he had an inter view with the acting president just be fore we left. "Queen Lilionkalani," continued Mr. Wilder, "if ehe had been allowed to carry out ber plans, would have be come absolute despot of the islands; no whites would have been allowed to vote. The house of nobles would have been abolished; the supreme cpurt judgeß, who are now appointed for life, would have been appointed for a six-year term only, and would have been subject to dißmiesal at the whim of the queen. "We were glad to have the United States ship Boston in Honolulu harbor. She was the only man-of-war in port, and while ehe did nothing beyond the landing of armed sailors who patrolled tbe street, yet the moral effect was good and probably quelled any disposition to fighting on the part of the natives, had there been any. The Hawaiiana, as a rule, are a simple, peaceful and indolent people, and would probably make no trouble if let alone. They are easily influenced, though, by politicians, and were convinced by the queen that she waß acting in their interests. "I understand that the United States warship Mohican has been ordered to proceed at once to Hono lulu to assist the Boston in maintaining order. We would much prefer to have some modern warships like the Charleston and San Francisco, which are now on the Atlantic coaet. I think the Boston will be able to con trol the situation withont trouble, but more ships would do no harm." SAN FRANCISCO MERCHANTS INTERESTED. The commissioners this morning re ceived an invitation from the San Fran cisco chamber of commerce to meet the directors of that body and discuss the Hiiuaurm .merchants. The invitation was and the chamber of commerce will probably adopt resolutions aßking the United States government to annex Hawaii. The commissioners have arranged to leave for Washington Sunday afternoon via the Central and the Union Pacific and Chicago and Northwestern roads. They will arrive in Washington next Friday. THE NEWS AT WASHINGTON. State and Navy Departments Excited Over Events in Hawaii. Washington, Jan. 28. —The newe that Queen Lilioukalina has been overthrown came to the United States government with an emphasis that precluded any doubt as to its authenticity. An official dispatch to Secretary John W. Foster, received this morning, brought the startling intelligence. He immediately sent the information to President Har rison and Mott Smith, the representa tive in Washington of Queen Liliouka lini. Mott Smith, however, had already been informed, and hurried to the etate department with a dispatch from Thurs ton, leader of the commission sent to negotiate the annexation of Hawaii to tbe United States. Secretary Coater sent the news to the office of the secre tary of the navy with the request for an immediate iuttrview with Secretary Tracy. Tracy had not reached the de partment at the time, but Assistant Secretarp Soley, recognizing the import an"e of the information, went at once to see Secretary Foster. FEW AVAILABLE VESSELS. They bad a consultation with refer ence to the naval strength of tbe United Stateß in Hawaiian waters, and Soley informed Foster that the only vessel there waß the cruiser Boston, now at Honolulu. No other vessels, he said, were in the vicinity. Foster thought it would be well to have better naval rep resentation at Honolulu, and Soley went back to the navy department to ascer tain what vessels were available for ser vice in this connection. Secretary Tracy arrived soon alter Soley returned, and, upon hearing the news, went over to Secretary Foster. It will take at least 10 days for one of our naval vessels to join the Boston at Honolulu. It is probable tbe new coast defense vessel, Monterey, will be cent. This vessel ie completed, with the ex ception of having her turret armor in place, and likely she will sail at once from Han Francisco, to support the Bos ton. Tbe interior lining of the iron to which the armor ia riveted has been placed in her turrets, and her stores are all on board. NO DISFLY OF FORCE NEEDED. After an interview witb Secretary Foster, Mott Smith *3jld a reporter he thought the new government could be maintained without the display of force by tbe United States, He believed, he said, the people themselves would regu late matt, re, and that there would be no 'trouble. Smith bad believed a revolu tion inevitable, but thought it would not come co soon. The interview between Secretary of State Foster and Dr. Smith continued for Borne time. At the close Secretary Foßter went over to the White House and had a conference with President Harrison. ANTI-ANNEXATION FEELING. While, of course, no statement of the policy to be pursued by the United States in the matter will be made, at least until after the arrival of the com missioners from Hawaii, it may be said that the visit of the Hawaiians will hardly be successful if the purport thereof has been correctly slated. Aside from the innovation upon the policy ot the government since its organization, which annexation would be, the inter eats of other countries in the S&ndwi.th islands are too large to permit on the part of the governments of those nations acquiescence in such annexation. It would involve consequences the United States would not care, and which its long settled policy forbida it, to assume. THE SENATE DISCUSSES THE MATTER. In executive session today the senate discussed the revolution generally. The speeches seemed to favor annexation or the establiehment of a protectorate. In opposition to these views it was asserted that the debt ni Hawaii amounted to more than $3,000,000, which was suffi cient cause for this government to halt before assuming the load. It was also stated by other senators that when we secured our coaling station at the Pearl river, years ago, there was an agreement under which England, Germany and the United States and the other great powers agreed to keep their hands off and permit Hawaii to run her own af fairs. In controverting this statement it was claimed that while there might have been a tacit understanding in that direction it was not such a con tract between powers as would pre clude tbe United States, in tbe event of a request from the government of Hawaii, from exercising the power of annexation, if in deed there has ever been any understanding on the subject. In sup port of the presumption that there is no agreement, it waa shown that England had been for a year or co quietly, but industriously, making inroads in tbe islands and creating a feeling among the people of that country which was harmful and extremely prejudicial to the interests of the United States and her citizens who had invested their money in enterprises that were devel oping the islands and increasing their trade and commerce. FEELING IN THE HOUSE. In the house of representatives there was strong feeling expressed by the leading Democrats against annexation. At the same time there was an equally unanimous opinion that no other na tion should be permitted to step in and control the destinies of the islands. It was said by several congressmen that the course Hawaii is adopting in seek ing annexation ie practically the same as that taken by Texas when it became a part of tbe United States. NAVAL OFFICERS ENTHUSIASTIC. The naval officers are enthusiastic over the news from Hawaii. One officer, who has an intimate acquaintance with Stevens, our minister to Hawaii, said he was present when Stevens presented his credentials to the government formed on the accession of tbe queen to the throne. Stevens read to the queen an address in which he virtually outlined her policy. The queen did not relish the euggestiona of Stevens, and became very angry. "If she had adhered to what he said," remarked the officer, "she would be on tha throne today." In reference to annexation, another officer said: "If the United States pos sessed Hawaii we could make it the Gibraltar of the Pacific." No Orders to British Ships. Victoria, B. C, Jan. 28 —As far as known no orders have been received here relative to the movements of Brit ish wmrehips on account of today's news from Honolulu. The Warspite is on her way to England, the Melpomene and Daphne are at Panama, the Garnet is due from the south, the Nymphe haß gone to tbe China station, the Pheasant and Champion are in southern waters, and the Hyacinth is at Eequimalt. The Provisional President. New York, Jan. 28.— S. B. Dole, now president of the provisional gov ernment of Hawaii, wae one of the late American missionaries to Hawaii. He is a graduate oi Williams college, and had been second associate justice of the supreme court of Hawaii. He is a scholarly man, of acknowledged legal and judicial ability. The Ranger and Mohican Ordered to Sea. Vallejo, Cal., Jan. 28.—The Banger and Mohican have been ordered to sea immediately; the Mohican direct to Honolulu; the ranger to proceed to San Francisco and await further orders. The Mohican will leave here at 5 o'clock. IN FAVOR OF DIVISION. Fresno Citizens Agree to the Dismem- berment of the County. Fresno, Jan. 28. —A meeting was held here tonight to confer on the proposed division of Fresno county. Senator Goucher and Assemblyman Mordecai and H. J. Jacobson came down from Sacramento to attend, for tbe purpose oi ascertaining the desire of the people in the matter. About 125 people came from Madera to present their side in favor of division. Between 400 and 500 people were present. A resolution wae presented stating it to be the sense of the meeting that tbe county should be divided, and that the north side should be permitted to form a new county. The vote on the resolution resulted in favor of the divieionistß, 345 for and 05 against division. From Newberg. C. F.

BLAINE WAS NOT A CATHOLIC. A Much Mooted Controversy Set at Rest. Cardinal Gibbons* Visit Was Very Unsatisfactory. Grover Cleveland Pays a Warm Trlbnte to the Dead Statesman—The Fu neral Arrangements—Many Marks of Kespect. By tha Associated Press. New York, Jan. 28.—Referring to the visit of Cardinal Gibbons to the home of Mr. Blame, the Sun's Baltimore cor respondent says: A priest to whom Cardinal Gibbons related the story of hia visit to the Blame residence in Washington, last month, is authority for the statement that it was at Blame's solicitation that the cardinal called. Here is the story as related by the car dinal himself to tbe priest: "When I went to the house I met Mrs. Walter Damroech, Blame's daugh ter, who seemed very averse to my see ing her father. I was finally ushered into the sick man's bedroom and found him lying almost in a state of coma. Mrs. Damrosch aroused him somewhat and said: 'Father, father, here is Car dinal Gibbons; yon wished to see him.' "Blame indicated that he understood her, but did not open hia eyes or at tempt to speak. Mrs. Damrosch then spoke to him again: '"Father, here is the cardinal; did yon want to endow a church ?' "Blame shook his head in the nega tive. " 'Do you want to give anything to the poor?' Mre. Damrosch asked. "Again the dying man shook bis bead." This, according to the priest, was the full extent of the conversation. Mre. Damrosch did not inquire whether her fathsr wished to see the cardinal on spiritual subjects, and seemed relieved when the cardinal departed without broaching such a conversation. St. Louis, Mo., Jan. 28.—The question of whether or not Blame died a Catho lic, is just at present attracting much attention. Rev. Father Phelan, editor of the Western Watchman, yeaterday cent a telegram to a member of the faculty of the Catholic university at Washington, asking if Blame received the laat sacraments. The reply today was "no." CLEVELAND ON BLAINE. The President- Elect Pay a the Dead Han a Glowing Trlbate. Lakkwoos, N. J., Jan. 28. —Mr. Cleve land has given out the following regard ing the death of Blame: "The first time I ever saw Blame I had a very pleasant interview with him at the White House, shortly after my inanguration aa presi dent. While I have seen but very little of him since that time, yet in a personal way, In common with all other Ameri can citizens, I have not failed to admire his traits, the breadth of hie information and the alertness of his intellect. A figure like his, which has been so prominently before the people, and which they have so long seen in different lights, cannot fail to be long remembered by those of the pres ent generation, and will certainly occu py a large place in the history of the country. "In common with all his countrymen, I share the request occasioned by the death of a man such aa Mr. Blame, so well entitled to be called an American statesman, irrespective of differences in political beliefs or opinions touching public questions." Mr. Cleveland announced this after noon that he will not be able to attend the fnneral. FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS. Admission Will Be by Card—Numerous Messages of Condolence. Washington, J an. 28.—Blame's funeral services will be held at the Church of the Covenant.

Officials of the Mormon Olty Reach Sau Francisco. San Francisco, Jan. 28.—A large par ty of officials of Salt Lake City and county arrived in San Francisco on the Oregon overland today. As the train drew up at the depot Snpervieors Day, Montgomery and Reia of thia city greet ed the visitors and escorted them to the Palace hotel. At the bead of the party is Judge C. F. Loofbourow, president of the council. The party left Salt Lake Sunday last with the purpose of inspect ing the public works of the Pacific slope cities. Three days were spent in Port land. Seattle and Tacoma. They will remain in San Francisco until Monday and proceed homeward over the Cen tral Pacific route, visiting Lob Angelea, San Diego and Sacramento. President Loofbourow stated that Salt Lake waß spending a great deal of money for pub lic works, and the object of this trip was mainly to see that the money was spent for honest improvements, and that could only be done by comparing tbe publio works of their city with others and have the defects remedied before it was too late. The delegation also in seeing about drawing the relations be tween the Pacific coast and middle west closer. DAM 1010 ItV SNOW. Roofs of Some of the World's Fair Buildings Caved In. Chicago, Jan. 28.—The great banks of snow that haye been resting on the roof of the manufacturers' building at the world's fair had their tremendous weight augmented last night and today by a heavy downpour of sleet and rain and tbe weight proved too much thia afternoon for certain parts of the struc ture. Tbe glass work and light iion work in the east annex, or nave, was caved in for a space of about l(i by 500 feet. The great trusses that span the central arch of the building and those that support the naves are still in tact, however, and the officials of the fair say they would stand the weight of all the enow that could be dropped on them. Some of the glass work in the roof of machinery hall also gave way. The first reports this afternoon were wildly exaggerated, the damage being placed as high as $100,000, and it being also stated that the agricultural and transportation building was in danger. President Higginbotham of tbe world's fair declared tonight that the damage done today will not exceed $5000, and that it is a matter entirely for the con tractors to settle. The report that other buildings are in danger is absolutely un true. ROBINSON'S TROUBLE. A Wealthy Resident of Riverside In dicted for Perjary, San Bernardino, Jan. 28.— H. W.

ONLY T WODAYS REMAIN Of tiie Five Dollar a Month Rate for All Diseases. Those Wishing to Take Advantage of This Remarkably Low Offer Must Do So Before February ist. Th© Record of Two Weeks—A Word to the Fnhllc — Rheuma tism Cured* The two weeks during: which Dr. De Monoo and associates offered to treat and furnish medicine free to all who applied have expired, and that which mtny declared impossible has baen accomplished. Out of the many hundreds who have applied, none have been turn d away, and not a cent of money was accepted on any pretext whatever. The strength of the physi clans and the resources of the laboratories were taxed to their utmost, but the work was ac comnished. Many of the patients who hare applied have said; "Doctor, 1 should like to continue under your care; I have received great benefit during there two weeks, but I suppose your charges are very high." Now, to answer all such remarks as this. Dr. De Munco and associates make the following public offer: In order to give all an opportunity of availing themselves of their skill this season, Dr. De Monco and associates will, until February Ist, make a uniform charge for medicine and treatment of $5 a month This 1b to all patients and for all disease*. All patients applying for treatment before February Ist will be treated for $5 a mouth, and all medicines furnished free, each month's treatment. Including medicine, to COSt «5 UNTIL CURED, A Word to tbe People. Dr. De Monco and associates are permanently located in Loa Angeles Therefore the people need have no fear or hesitancy in placing their case in the hands of these specialists. This re markably low offer of $5 a month for all dis eases, until February Ist, Is bona fide in every respect an means just whU it says, nothing less. It Is not nt all like ihe offer made by ir responsible, faking itenner&nte, who possess neither skill, education or honesty of purpose. Dr. De Monco and associates are graduates of reputable colleges, and are not ashamed to mention the names of the same. Neither do they hesitate to have their own names app'nar in print accompanying the methods they adopt. They never advertise free treatment and then charge for medicines, as scores of peo ple will testify who availed themselves of their two weeks free treatment, nor do they falsely represent anything in any manner whatsoever. They state plainly whit they mean in their advertisement, and fulfill all they promise. Medical fakirs. Uenuerant scamps, quacks and alledged staff* wiil do well to give Los An geles a wide benh, as their dishonest methods will certainly be exposed for public good. If this is not sufficiently convincing more will follow, and then lot the people choose. Dr. De Monco and associates welcome straightforward, honest and skillful competi tion.
