NOT FRIENDLY TO HAWAII.
The Administration's Policy
To the Provisional Government
of the Islands.
The Annexation Proposition Is Ont
of the Question.
minister Willi! Instructed to Die Hie.
Moral lufluenoe for the Restora
tion of the Queen— Naval
By the Associated Press.
Washinoton, Nov. 9 —Secretary
Greabara declines to impart any inform
ation on the Hawaiian subject. The
discussion of tbe policy towards Hawaii
at the cabinet meeting Tuesday seems
to have given information to some mem
bers of tbe administration, and bite of
talk have trickled through to the public
since then. It is evident tbat tbe ad
ministration's policy is not friendly to
the provisional government of tbe
islands, or for annexation to tbe United
States. There is reason to believe, that
the provisional government in HAwaii
is regarded as the result of the landing
of marines from tbe Boston in Honolulu.
Well informed persons who comment on
these facte point out the difficulty the
United States government would expe
rience in deposing tbe provisional gov
crnmontin a diplomatic way, after hav
ing formally recognized it as the lawful
government of tho islands and received
its accredited diplomatic representatives
and accredited United States minister
There seems to be no authority for
believing the United States minister
hag been given power to exerciee any
thing more than moral influence to
secure the re-establishment of the con-
ditionß in the islands that obtained
before the recent revolution, but such
influence is to be tried. Those
well acquainted with the islands
believe no mere moral suasion
will ever serve to depose the provisional
government. The United States navy
will view with very little satisfaction
any effort to restore Queen Liliuokalani.
The officers of the navy have been ar
dent annexioniste, and the opinion pre
vailed among them that Queen Liliuo
kalani represented the British interests
in tho islands.
Torlay was diplomats day at the state
department, and among the secretary's
callers was Frank Q. Hastings, Hawaiian
charge d'affaires, who is in charge of the
legation during Thurston's absence in
LOW WATER MARK.
The Available Treasury BaHeca Falls
Washington, Nov. 9. — Low water
mark oi the net available balance ol the
treasury was reached today when the
total stood at $99,908,242, of which
$84,050,412 was gold reserve. Large ex
penditures over receipts thus far this
mocth are responsible for thiß condition,
hut no alarm or uneasiness is felt at the
department. Tbe hope ia expressed
that the reserve, as well as the net cur
rency balance, will rise coon.
It was said at tbe department today
that no orders in reference to the actual
coinage of silver bullion in the treasury,
purchased under the Sherman act, had
yet been issued.
The low Btate of the treasury's avail
able cash has given use to fresh rumors
that cow means will be devised for re
plenishing the gold reserve. It is said
at the treasury department, however,
that, other than the coinage of bullion,
Secretary Carlisle has no immediate
Bteps in contemplation involving a
change in the fiscal policy of tho gov
ernment. There ia said to be no dispo
sition to ißsue bonds , at present, and no
such issue is thought necessary before
the meeting of congress, when the views
of the president will be set forth.
FOREIGN MAIL SERVICE.
The Bnbaldy Syetem Condemned by the
Wabuinoton, Nov. 9. —The report ol
the superintendent of the foreign mail
service was made -to the postmaster
general today. The most interesting
feature of the document is its criticism
of the subsidies granted under the set
of March 3, 1891. Tbe subsidies made
very little, if any, change by an in
creased number of trips or in the time
made by the vessels. Tbe report states
that the subsidies cost the government
$406,927 more than the service would
have cost without the subsidies.
The cost of foreign mails earned in
vessels of United States register was:
Trans-Atlantic, $68,428; trang-Paciiic,
$157,230; miscellaneous, $420,777; total,
The amount paid vessels of foreign
registry for carrying mails was: Trans-
Atlantic, $460,623; trans-Pacific, $10,
--720; miscellaneous, $24,284; total,
TU* estimated amount of postage col
lected on foreign mails is $3,052,189.
BEER AND TUBACCO.
Protests Made Against the Proposed
Increased Tax on These Staples.
Washington, Nov. 9. —The committee
appointed by the convention of tobacco
manufacturers of the United States to
appear before the ways and means
committee and protest against any in
crease in the tax on manufactured to
bacco were accorded a heariug thiß
afternoon by Chairman McMillin of the
sub-committee on internal revenue.
Mr. Spence of Cincinnati acted as
spokesman. He said any increase of
tbe tax on manufactured tobacco would
be inimical to the manufacturers and
growers of tobacco, by reason of lessen
ing the consumption. The committee
recommended the repeal of the law of
1.890, which permits the Bale of leaf to
bacco to the consumer without the
payment of taxes. They argued that
tbe repeal of this law would largely in
crease the government revenues from
Mr. McMillin gave no intimation of
the intentions of the committee on ways
and means with reference to the tobacco
schedule, but it has been frequently ru
mored that the majority of the commit
tee favor an increase of tbe tobacco tax
as a means of supplying the necessary
revenues of the government.
Messrs. McMillin, Turner, Breckin
ridge, Bynum and Montgomery, of tbe
ways and means committee, today had a
conference with Secretary Carlisle with
reference to the tobacco and other
Mr. Wall of Wisconsin subsequently
caw Secretary Carlisle, during which he
took occasion to protest against the new
tariff bill increasing the internal reve
nue tax on beer. He also opposed re
ducing tho custom duty on imported

Washington, Nov. 9.—Commissioner
Miller, of the internal revenue bureau,
is amending the treasury department
regulations for the registration of Chi
namen, in accordance with the recent
act of congress extending the time for
registration six months. The depart
ment has an unexpended balance of
$20,000, which can be utilized in put

It is generally understood the Chinese
will register, and that after six months
all the Chinese not able to produce cer
tificates will be summarily deported.

ANOTHER BRITISH VICTORY IN
A Thousand Matabstws Slaughtered and
Only Threo British Killed.
King Lobengnln's Capital
London, Nov. 9.—lt is reported that
the British bave won another victory
over the Matabeles. The rumor that
King Lobengula baa been captured is
unconfirmed. A message from Sir
Henry Lock, high confmissioner, to the
man;nis of Ripon, eecfttary of state for
the colonies, was read*-in the commonß
by Sidney Burton, which gives the re
port. It says: "Yesterday Makalakos
asked protection, stating column from
east in possession of Buluwnyo, King
Lohaagula and Yiuinjbo find."
Mr. Buxtou added that the news was
satisfactory end he hoped there would
be no other hostilities.
Labouchere moved to adjourn in order
to call attention to the Matabele cam
paign. The motion was supported by
nearly all the Radicals aud the anti-
Parnellites who arose in their seats.
Labouchere eaid the taxpayers' money
was being spent to enable a company to
get something in order to swindle and
cheat British investors. Steps ought to
be taken immediately to stop the mas
Buxton replied that it was not advis
able to make a statement oi the govern
ment's policy. The company waa an
swerable for the pence of the Mashanas
and not the government. It was inev
itable that the Matabeles would eventu
ally be absorbed, peacefully or other
wise, but the govemment agreed that
the war ought not degenerate into a war
of extermination or expulsion of the
A diepatch from Fort Victoria says
another battle has been fought between
tbe British and Matabeles, in which
only three British were killed and seven
wounded. Fully 1000 Matabeles per
ished and they were completely routed.
A DOTTLE OF FOKTER
Canees the Death of Three People in
Boston, Nov. 9.—The mystery sur
rounding the tragic death of Mrs. Han
nah Toole and iier daughter Margaret
at their home in South Boston last
night, after partaking of a bottle of por
ter, has added horror tonight. The
death of the father occurred tonight.
Four of the family were present at tbe
bedside of the dying man. These were
John, Patrick, Joseph and Annie.
Stephen, Michael and Minnie were
confined at police station No. 0,
charged with the murder of their
mother and Margaret. The father
passed away, never knowing that hia
wife and daughter had gone before. He
had been confined to his bed at home
for months, suffering from an incurable'
malady. His eon Michael furnished the
bottle of porter, the drinking of which
caused the death of Mrs. Toole and Mar
garet. The report of the medical em
aminer shows that there was cyanide of
potash enough in the stomach of the
two to kill -li) men.

Boston, Mass., Nov. 9. —The concen

with leading Massachusetts Republi

choice for McKinley as the next Repub

Ue Confidently Expeoted Vindication at
Denver, Colo., Nov. 9.—Senator Teller
arrived here from Washington yesterday.
Speaking of the election he said : "The
only construction that can be placed
upon the results in tbe country
at large is a pronounced condem
nation of Cleveland's administration.
I was informed, not by the president
himself, but by good authority, that
President Cleveland had always be
lieved the November election would be
a complete vindication of his course.
He was often warned' by Democratic
members that he would get himself and
party into trouble if he continued in the
j conjrse he had mapped out, but he knew
better than they dfd, and-now he has
heard from tbe country. Now we will
get no relief from congress as long as
Cleveland holds the veto power or Eng
land continues its present policy. Stiver
will not, I think, go lower than it is now
and may go higher."

The Populists Now Admit Their Over
Topeka, Kan., Nov. 9.—Additional
returns of Tuesday's election swell the
Republican pluralities, and the Popu
lists, co hopeful yesterday, concede that
they have been badly defeated. Suffi
cient returns are received to warrant the
Republican claim of a large plurality
of the aggregate vote, and it will
probably appear that tbe victory
lis really a majority over both Populists
and Democrats. Of 13 judges elected,

The Biggest Republican Majority Since

Philadelphia, Nov. 9.—Late return
make it probable that tbe Republican
majority for Judge Fell for the supreme
court will not fall short of 130,000, the
biggest majority the party has ever had
here, except when Grant boat Greeley
in 1872. A remarkable thing about this
victory is that such old-time Democratic
counties as Schuylkill, Northumberland,
Luzerne and Lackawanna gave Repub
lican majorities. In York county tbe
Republibana elect tbe sheriff for the
hist time in 45 years, and in Lehigh the
Republicans elect the treasurer, a pro

unrepealed," said Hearst. "A great
party leader told the Democracy in its

Only Seven Men Saved Oat of a Crew of
North Bay, Ont., Nov. 9.—lt ia now
believed that 24 men were on board the

London, Nov. 9.—Alderman George
Robert Tyler, tbe new lord mayor, was
inducted into office today with the
usual ceremonies, including the cus

speak concerning the negotiations
with France in regard to Siam, but the

Britaiu'a commercial interests in Siam
and the importance of maintaining the
British position on that frontier.
