The NoTfttioff Ineldflirt Dropped by
the Government.

By the Associated l'rets.l
Honoi.ui.i', May 30.—(Via Han Fran
cisco, per steamer Gaelic, June (!.—)Af
fairs political bave quieted considerably
during the past live days. The Nordhoff
affair has been dropped by the pro
visional government and though the
usual number ot alarming rumors have
been in circulation, the people have
tailed to give them the customary
Olaus Spreckels created a mild sensa
tion on May 2lHh by demanding the im
mediate payment of $96,000 owed him
by the government.
The dispatches from Washington stat
ing that Blount's report is undoubtedly
against annexation, are believed by
many people of both parties. Tbe an
nexationists now e«y they will be satis
fied with a protectorate insuring a relia
ble government. The Royalists on tbe
"contrary say that the claim they made
' all along that there would be no annex
ation has been verified, and that the
queen is to be reinstated. They say
that Mr. Blount will report that she was
removed from her throne by the power
of the United States, through Minister
Stevens, and that no other honorable
course remains but to use that same
power to put l.iliuokalani once mora at
the head of tbe government.
Claus Sprockets seems to be the most
powerful antagonist the provisional
government has at present, lie is
making a vigorous campaign against
annexation. It is generally admitted
that the resignation of Minister of
Finance Porter was due to the influence
of Spreckels, in tbe hope that the gov
ernment would be embarrassed. In
stead, however, Vice-President 8. M.
Damon, one ot the strongest men on the
islands, has stopped into the breach,
and on May "nth took charge ot the de
partment of finance. On Monday
Hpreokels notified the government that
he wanted the immediate payment of
(95,000 worth of demand noteß held by
him. Without awaiting a reply, be left
the same day to inspect a plantation in
Hawaii. Minister Datuon stated that
the government would bave no trouble
in paying the debt. At thia time of the
year the government finances are low,
aa the taxes do not begin to come in
until tall. On this acoount the govern
ment is embarrassed to a certain extent.
Mr. Bpreokela can sell the bonds he
helds, if no other way can he found to
satisfy him.
For aome days the officers of the pro
visional government have had under
consideration instructions to be sent to
Minister Thurston about tbe treaty of
annexation. It has been decided to in
struct Thurston to oak, among other
things, that the control of the govern
ment lands be left to the Hawaiian gov
ernment to be disposed of under a law
aimUar to the United Htataa homestead
laws; also that tbe United Stateß take
up the $1)00,000 Hawaiian silver coinage
and recoin it into American money. The
labor qOMStion waa also nwier discussion,
and the policy of asking that the labor
laws of .4-ha United States be suspended
lor a period af five yeais, as regards
their application to Hawaii, was talked
of, when - news caam that Minister
Blount would receive inatructiona to
negotiate a treaty here. It had been in
tended to send Thurston inatructiona on
the steamer of June Ist, but tbe govern
ment yeeterday decided to defer action.
Minister ltiouut regards the sitnation
as peaoeful and thinks that whatever
tbe solution of the political problem,
there will be no fighting or bloodshed.
The announcement waa made that on
Monday night, May 29th, a masa meet
ing of Royaliett would be held. It was
reported that the provisional govern
ment would not permit tbe meeting and
Monday nigbt waa looked forward to
with interest by many. Monday after
noon, however, notice waa aerjt oat that
the meeting would not be held, as the
news from Washington made it unneces
sary. The annexationists, although no
official notice had been given that any
interference would be attempted, said
that the Royalists wore afraid to meet.

A Hot I I. hi Over the Resolutions—The
Katlloals Defeated'
Chicago, June 0. —When Governor
Nelson, of Minnesota, called tbe anti
trust convention to order it was ex
pected that the first fight of the session
would begin, for it waa generally known
that the Donnelly or radical faction had
been beaten In the committee of resolu
tions and would carry the liorht to the
lioor ot the convention. Chairman
R jsewater of the committee on resolu
tions had no sooner read the preamble
than Donnelly moved as a substitute a
demand lor the government to purchase
the anthracite coal lands. Henry I).
Lloyd, of Chicago, wanted the bitumi
nous coal lands alao purchased, and the
light on tlioae two amendments lasted
two hours, after which Rotewater
moved the previous question and the
committee report carried. The fight
was kept up ail day. however, by theex
i tremists, but they were outvoted at
every turn.
The resolutions adopted set forth at
length the evils of the trust system as at
present maintained, and call upon tbe
convention to create a permanent asso
ciation, to be known aa the Anti-Trust
association of the United States,consisting
of three representatives from each state
and territory, also the organization of
local anti-trust aseoeiations to aid in se
curing uniform legislation and rigid exe
cution of the laws.
The resolutions declare that over capi
talization of corporate property is largely
responsible for the breaking down of
credits and the financial diatresa now
prevailing, and recommend stringent
national and state legislation and super
vision to limit the bonding of corporate
property and tbe issue of stocks repre
senting the aame to their actual value.
It is recommended that each member
of the convention nse all honorable
means to secure the election to office,
whether local, state or federal, of those
only who are the exponents of thia anti
trust sentiment. It is recommended
also that tbe legislatures of the various
states enact such legislation as will
make it unlawful for any corporation to
enter into any trust or combination det
rimental to trade and commerce and in
jurious to the public welfara.
Tbe resolutions were not radical
enough to suit the Donnelly-Weaver ele
ment, and they gave notice of another
meeting at the Palmer h< use tonight.
Before the close of the Central hall
meeting J, M. (juinn of the Butte
(Mont.) Miner, offered a free coinage

New Youk, J«ne 6 —The World will

expression of Briggt sines he was sus

bly of the church is a letter which wil
be published in tomorrow's New York
Evangelist. In the letter Briggs says no
one should feel obliged to retire from the
Presbytorian church on account of the
decision of the last assembly. lie says
in part: "The ministry of the church
has violated the constitution, and over
riden the safe guards of Presbyterian
law and precedent. The majority
should rally and use every
lawful method to undo the damage
done to the fair fame of Presbytefian

Eet the ay nod of New York assert it<

Chicago, June 0, —In spite of the faot
that the Illinois Trust & Savings Bank
remained open till 3 o'clock this morn
ing to give anxious depositors a chance
to draw funds, a new line began to form
before 8 o'clock this morning, and at 10
o'clock, tbe hour for opening, between
1200 and 1500 people were waiting at tha
doors, with savings books, The crowd
was several timet larger than at any
time yesterday. The bank is considered
absolutely sound, fts assets are figured
up at over 128,000,000, and its stock
holders are estimated to be worth in the
aggregate fully $150,000,000.
At other savings banks the runs
which began yesterday seem to bave
increased in size.
During the time when the run on the
Illinois Trust bank was hottest this
afternoon, Philip D. Armour, the mil
lionaire pork packer, sent out some of
his clerks to bring into his office 100
or more of the excited depositors,
mostly women. To these Mr. Ar
mour made a brief speech, assuring them
that the bank waa all right, and added
that Armour A Co. will guarantee to
each of them the full amount of their
deposit, if any of J them were not
satisfied with this let tbem speak np
and he would Rivn them their money.
Two women asked for the amount of
their deposits, which were immediately
paid in gold, while the remainder of the
people went away satisfied.
Washington, June o.—Comptroller
Eckels "said to the Associated Press this
morning that so far as he was advised
no national bank in Chicago has been
affected by yesterday's financial flurry.
The clearing houae there stands ready
to assist its members whenever
necessary. The abstract of the condition
of the Chicago national banks on the
date of last call, shows a reserve of 29.45
per cent, 4.45 per cent above the legal
requirement. The total resourcea are
$160,801,804, a surplus of $11,510,700;
undivided profits, $1,593,000.
Three Bsnki at Hpokane, Wash., Close
Their Doi.ru.
Hi'okanr, Wash., Jane 8. — Three
banks closed their doors today. They
have assets largely in excess of llabili
ities and have been conducted with
sound management. They were caught
in the sudden whirl and flurry. The
public suddenly became alarmed and
the dlstanoe from money centers pre
vented timely fortification. When the
banking hours arrived this morning the
Washington National and the Washing
ton Savings banks, allied institutions,
failed to open their doors. They
had been subjected to a heavy run
the day before, and although they had
made arrangements for money it failed
to arrive in time. Thia startled the
public, and the run was started anew
upon all the banks. By 1 o'clock it had
almost entirely subsided, but relief came
too late for the Citizens' National,which
closed its doors at 2 o'clock. Other
banks stood the strain with no visible
signs of weakening, and since they have
been strengthening themselves and the
worst of the flurry is believed to be over,
it Is generally believed that there will
be no more auepensions.

Defiance, 0., June 6, —The doors of
the Defiance Savings bank closed yester
day afternoon just before the close of
business. This waa done by Assignee
Rolla H. Glaaton. Many atockholdera
did not know that such a step waa in
contemplation. The bank ia the young
eat in town. Its assets are not less than
$150,000 and its liabilities are stated to
be $100,000. The failure is attributed
to large loans made by the bank, which
ties up some $127,000, leaving them a too
narrow working capital. Andrew Saver,
cashier, assigned his entire real and per
sonal property, amounting to $100,000.
Mr. Saver is intereeted in a number of
local enterprises, all of which were in
cluded in his assignment. Among them
are the Defiance electric street railway,
electric light plant and gaa works, the
Citizens' opera house, valued at $50,000,
besides considerable real estate and the
Golden Rule dry goods bouse.

Chicago, June (>. —The Grant Loco

In Twenty Days It Will Be tbe Law of
the Land.
Washington, June 0. —The Rubbish
extradition treaty, which has been the
subject of negotiation between the two
contracting parties more than six years,
which has been amended again and
again and which was threatened with
defeat in its final stages, has at last been
formally proclaimed and will henceforth
be the law of the land until it ia super
seded by another treaty. Ratifications
were exchanged in St. Petersburg nearly
two months ago, but because it was
necessary to observe extraordinary pre
cautions to secure the safe transmission
of tbe document to the United States,
the treaty was not received at the
state department until a late day
last week. The treaty is in
the French language and it was neces
sary to translate the document into Eng
lish and make a very careful compari
son between the translation and the
original. This work was completed
yesterday and today the president saw
it for the first time when Secretary
Uresbam carried it to tbe cabinet meet
ing. All that remained to be done was
an official proclamation and that was
done this afternoon.
The proclamation was dated yesterday
and simply recited the provisions of the
treaty, with the announcement that it
will go into effect 20 days from date,
that is to say June 24th.
Interest centers on the sections mak
ing attempts upon the heads of the gov
ernments, or accessoryship to such at
tempts, extraditable. These sections in
the treaty, as officially promulgated, are
precisely identical in language with the
sectiona published in the Washington
dispatches to the Associated Press April
22d last. It is asserted in official quart
ers, in spite of all that has been said
about the treaty, that it ia similar in
scope to all extradition treaties nego
tiated by the United States in recent
years, although in practice it may be
that the administration of the articlea
will have a different result, in view of
tbe essential difference between the
judicial systems of the two countries,
which in this case are supposed to be
more than usually divergent.

ber 9, 1801. Alter their return to Amer
ica, Mrs. Booth, sinking under a sudden
illness, died at Dorcheeter, Mass., Feb
ruary 21, 1863.
While in England, Booth appeared at
the London Haymarket theater, enact
ing Shylock, Sir Giles and Riobeliau.
The latter part, with which almost as
much as with Hamlet, his name is
identified, he bad first assumed at Sac
ramento, Oal., In July, 1888 Hia per
formance of it waa much admired In
London, and alio at Liverpool and Man
On returning to America, Booth coon
bacame manager of the Winter Garden
theater, New York. Here Booth ap
peared December 29, 1802, and with
this home he waa associated until
March 23, 1867, when it was
deatroyed by fire. Here he
effected magnificent prodtictiona of
Hamlet, Othello, The Merchant of Ven
ice, Richelieu and other plays, and ac
complished the remarkable achievement
of running Hamlet for 100 consecutive
nighti, an exploit that waa commem
orated by the public presentation to
him, January 22, 1807, of a gold medal
suitably inscribed, and offered in behalf
of leading citizens of New York.
Booth's brother-in-law, the celebrated
comedian, John S, Clarke, was his part
ner in the management of the Winter
Garden, and they associated with
themselves an old journalist and
theatrical agent, William Stuart (real
name, Edmund O'Elaherty) former
ly of Galway, Ireland. Clarke A Booth
were also associated in the management
of tbe Walnut Street theater, Philadel
phia, from the summer of 1803 till
March, 1870, when the interest of the
former was purchased by the latter.
In April, 1865, an appalling tragedy
(the asaasaination of President Lincoln
by J. Wilkes Booth, Edwin's brother)
compelled Edwin Booth to leave the
stage, and it waa then hia wish and pur
pose never to return to it; but business
obligations constrained him, and he
agaiu appeared at the Winter Garden,
Januaty 3, 1866, as Hamlet, and waa re
ceived with acclamation by a great au
April 8, 1868, the corner-stone was
laid for Booth's theater, at the south
east corner of Twenty-third street and
Sixth avenue, New York, and February
3, 1869. Booth opened the new bouse
with Romeo and Juliet, Romeo being
played by himself and Juliet by Mine
Mary MoVicker. This lady waa the
daughter of Mra. Rnnnion, who became
the wife of Jamee H, McVicker of Chi
cago, a prominent actor and manager,
and the child's name waa changed from
Runnion to McVicker. Booth married
her June 7, 1869, and she died in New
York in 1881, leaving no children.
Booth's theater had a moat successful
career of 13 years. Its story, however,
ended in May, 1882, when it was finally
dosed, the last performance in it being
Juliet, by Madame Modjeska. After this
it was torn down and a block of stores
built on its site. Booth's theater was
managed by Edwin Booth until the
spring of 1874, when it passed out of bis
possession. His stock company at one
time included Lawrence Barrett, Edwin
L. Davenport, J. W. Wallack, jr., and
many other noted actors.
Booth's theater was almost invariably
a prosperous house, but it was not
economically managed, and for this rea
son it eventually carried its owner into
bankruptcy. Booth then began his
PJlreer over again, and in the course of
lime paid bis debts and earned another
In 1876 he made a tour of the south,
which was in fact a triumphal progress.
Tbouaanda of spectators flocked to ace
him in every city he visited. In San
Francisco, where he acted for eight
weeks, he drew upwards of $96,000. In
1880 and again in 1882 he visited Great
Britain and acted with brilliant
Buccess in London and other cities. Ho
went to Germany in 1882, and was there
received with extraordinary enthusiaam.
In 1883 he returned home and resumed
hie starring tours of America, since
which time his career is fresh enough

A Mark of Vulgarity.
Vulgarity marks the man or woman
who ia given to general backbiting and
unreflecting slander—to tho glad propa
gation of scandalous stories rospeoting
pooplo of whom ho or ahe can know noth
ing. It gives a certain sense of superi
ority to be ablo to thus besmirch the
ermmo of those who are set in high
places and whoso moral influence de
pends on their fair farao. If they are of
such base material, what may not be
pardoned to the confessedly coarser clay?
—and are not tho lesser fry in their own
small way superior to these grander fel
lows? So think the vulgar minded re
tailors of scandalous stories of tho great
and prominent. Thoae, too, who bolitlle
their friends and acquaintances come
into tho tamo category.—London Queen.
Increased Sound at Night.
I would like to ask if you have ever
noticed the acoustic phenomenon of
greater audibility of sounds after night
fall? Thero have been hundreds of at
tempts to account for this singularity in
tho mat tor of sounds, the theories being
almost as numerous as the theorists
themselves. The ancients noticed that
the intensity of all sounds was increased
at night and ascribed the phenomenon
to various causes, some almost as absurd
as the reasons CO assigned by certain mod
ern scientists.—St. Louis Republic.
A Deluded Hear.

A sight more beautiful than Jackson

1,550 art placed fit intervals of from 65
to 75 feet, except at tho estremo south
eastern part of tho grounds, whore dis
tances between somo of the posts are in
creased to 125 feet. Around the main
entrances to the principal buildings clus
ters of lamps aro placed. The arc lamps
imployed for exterior illumination are
mpported on ornamental posts designed
to receivo one, two or three lamps and,
where expedient, have arm-supporting
incandescent lamps of high candle power
inclosed within colored glass lanternß
that afford a richly decorative effect, sA
problem of different character was pre
sented when the question of aislo light

the varied nature of tho exhibits, the
character of tho inclosures, the height of
showcases and proximity of supports.
In the final allotment of lamps (in
round numbers) 1,200 were assigned to
the Manufactures building, GOO to tho

An Aged Fine Before Columhns Came.
Ever einco the days of the first set
tlers in the Piko county backwoods of
Pennsylvania a piiio treo known as tho
"Great Pino" had been a landmark in
Green township because of its great
height, tho treo towering far above all
the other trees in tho pine forest that
then covered tho Pike county moun
tains. In tho clearing awny of tho pino
timber, which waa the main purpose of
woodsmen for 60 years and more, thia
lordly tree was left standing, and 80
yeara ago it became tho solo relic in all
that region of the great primitive forest
of pines, and since then has been famous
throughout northern Pennsylvania as
tho "last pino."
Tho natives had always regarded the
ancient tree with great veneration, but
recently tho land on which it stood pass
ed into the hands of alien owners, and
ono day last week they had it cut down.
The treo was found to bo 878 feet in
height, and tho infallible record of tho
rings of its stem showed its ago to bo
462 years, so that it was a rospectablo
tree 63 yeara old when Columbuß discov
ered America. It was perfectly sound
from butt to tip and will cut $2,000
worth of lumber. —Pike County Dis

The Pay of l^mbassadors.
If present pay is inadequate for min
isters, it is absurd for embassadors, and
yet congress is not likely to increase sal
aries. It has sanctioned a title author
ized by the constitution, but is unwilling
to pay for what the title calls. For sev
eral years the fact has been recognized
that only lioh men, or at least men who
had something beyond their pay, could
afford to accept the London, Paris or
Berlin mission, Mr. Lowell and Mr,
Phelps being exceptions. Tho raising
of the grade to an embassadorship makes
the obstacles to poor men all the greater.
An impecunious embassador would bo
ridiculous, and as the increased rank is
practically of no benefit to tho country
the sooner we return to tho old rank the
better. Tho country will bo better rep
resented by a self respecting minister
than by an embassador who is tho object
of universal commiseration because his
meager salary compels him to live'in
lodgings. —Harper's Weekly.

Goes to School Monday.
A Tory sensible lady out on Ninth
street delayed sending her small son to
tho public schools until he should be old
enough to look after himself and has
been teaching htm herself in order that
he might not fall too far behind other
boys of hia age. Yesterday morning
Master Freddy came gravely up to hia
mother for hia lesson. After the regular
routine was ended his mother put a few
leading questions:
"Freddy, what is a yoar?"
"Three hundred and sixty-five days."
"What is a day?"
"Twenty-four hours—and an hour is
60 minutes, and a minute ia 60 seconds."
"What is an instant?"
"An instant?" and Master Freddy
knitted his downy brow a brief space
whilo he thought. '*Oh, yes, I know, I
know, mamma,. An instant is a hole in
the ground."
"A hole in the ground I" exclaimed hia
mother, totally taken aback. "Why,
how in the world do you make that outr
"Why," declared Master Fred with de
cision, aa he hurriedly opened hia read
er, "this book says, 'John's dog fell down
In an instantl'"
Freddy will start to school Monday.—

The Elephant's Sense.
Why an elephant should bo afraid of
a mouse is a mystery. Some have
doubted the generosity of the elephant
because of his aversion to small animals,
but none can doubt his intelligence.
Buffon, notwithstanding hia idea of tho
mere mechanism of animals, spoke of
the elephant as at the same time a "mir
acle of intelligence and a monster of
matter." Ernest Menault happily re
ferred to him as the animal that carried
his nose in his hand. Hence the mar
velous intelligence of his trunk. The
senses of touch and smell co-operate.
The norves which extend through his
trunk aro so numerous that they equal
in number all those distributed over the
rest of the body. The elephant can keep
perfect timo to music. He has tho ear
perfectly organized, and the hearing iB
extremely fine. The eye of the elephant
is distinguished from that of other ani
mals by the pathetic expression of senti
ment. Take him all in all, naturalists
agree that ho is the most intelligent of
animals. And why should he bo afraid
of a mouse? —New York Tribune.
Improved Boats and Muscle.
The boat with which the Oxford crew
won tho great 'varsity race must have
had a pneumatic tire. With better
methods of training and improved sys
tems of rowing the men of today havo
unquestionably tho advantage of those
of past years, but too much credit must
not bo given where it is not due. The
vast improvement in boats must not
bo overlooked in considering the time of
the race,
Neither Harvard nor Yale has any
thing to fear from Oxford or Cambridge
provided a better boat can bo made here
than that in which tho victorious Oxford
crew rowed. It was the pneumatic tire
and not Nancy Hanks that played havoc
with Maud S.s record. Good horses
make good jockeys, good sulkies make
good horses, and good boats make good
crews.—New York Tribune.
