/ the state department aa was
n tbe first place that Willis
l to carry out hia instructions,
. the refusal of the queen to ac
the conditiona.
RepioftvueatiVw Rayrior c! Maryland,
who ia to apeak for tbe administration
in the house, was an early visitor of the
state department and waa closeted with
Secretary Gresham for some time.
Senator Gray of Delaware, spokesman
for the administration in the senate,
later had a abort conference with the
secretary of state.
There is no donbt that all concerned
feel that thie latest phase of the Hawai
ian imbroglio involves very serious con
sequence*. There does not appear to be
any disposition on the part of the pro
visional government to yield peaceably,
bat there ie no apprehension that Willis
will resort to force, his instructions be
ing explicitly against anch a course.
The atate department feela tbat he acted
with bad judgment in attempting to
carry oat a policy defined nnder very
different conditiona. Everybody ia very
anxious for the publication of tbe con
tents of tbe cipher diapatchea brought
by tbe Corwin, but the atate department
so far has declined to make tbe contents
Repreaentative Hitt of Illinois, evi
dently giving full credence to the truth
of the Aaeociated Press Auckland dis
patch, introduced the following resolu
tion in the house:
Resolved, Tbat the president be re
quested to communicate to the house,
if not inconsistent with pnblic interest,
all information received aince his mes
sage of December 18, 1893, or not trans
mitted therewith, and now in hi? pos
session, touching tbe recent reported
events in tbe Hawaiian islands, as to
any attempts to overturn tbe republican
government thereof and erect a mon
archy in its stead, and especially
v, nether any representative officer, ves
s< 1 or armed force of the United States
1M k part in such attempts to aubvert
the friendly government, and, if ao, by
whose orders they acted.
Senator Frye, a member of the com
mittee on foreign relatione, expressed
much concern to know whether the ad
vices received yesterday were correct,
and —hen eaanrarl that they were, said:
"It is tbe groaeeat outrage yet, if tbe
story is true. While Cleveland did not
say in so many words he would drop the
matter, unless congress should give him
ita anpport, his meaeage created the im
pression that Buch would be hia policy,
and be ought, in all fairness, after de
livering tbat meeaage, to have immedi
ately withdrawn all instructions to his
minister looking to interference witb
the affaire of Hawaii, until congress
conld at leaat have had time to take
"What," was aeksd, "do yon think
will be the next move made by the pres
ident T"
"He cannot, with doe regard to the
constitution, go any fnrther than he baß
gone, bnt I cannot undertake to aay
what Cleveland will do."
Charlea Wilder, Hawaiian consul at
San Francisco, telegraphed the legation
here that tbe Corwin brought no mail,
diapatchea or newspapers to him, and
that he waa unable te obtain anything
from the officers of the Corwin aa to the
conditian of affairs in Honolulu.
The Hawaiians at tbe legation in thia
city express apprehension lest the iast
move of inspire tbe royalists
in Honolultt-if) ion? act of violence, or
to tbe killing of Some prominent man
in the govern awn t, leading to general
bloodshed. Nd fears are expressed that
tbe provisional government will not
prove to be able to suppress any out
break, but there ia ground for fear tbat
an outbreak may occur.
Senator Allison felt some doubt'about
the correctness of the report, but eaid:
"If true it ia a great mistake. Tbe
whole business must end in a fiasco, for
tbe president has esid he would not
nae force."
Voorheas thinks the blame for tbe
whole trouble began with the previous
administration. He aaya the people
care nothing about the Hawaiian ques
tion. He conaidere that Stevens is tbe
responsible man, and believes he was
engaged in a conspiracy aix months be
fore the revolution took place to oust
tbe queen and annex the Hawaiian
islands. Tbe senator aaya he would not
hesitate to go before a jury to convict
bim of conspiracy, and feela confident
be would succeed. "If," he added,
"there was some powerful government
behind Hawaii, as Spain was back ot
Cuba when certain Americans attempt
ed to seize that island, tbe consequences
might be as serious for the conspirators
in thia inatance ac in that."
Hill of New York declined to enter
into any discussion of the report as it
stands. "Wait until we know all about
it," he said, and after thinking a mo
ment be added: "If it should prove
true, I fear Hawaii wonld displace tbe
elections bill in discussion in the senate
next week."
m'ckbaky tt SKEFHCAL.
McCreary, chairman of the house for
eign affairs committee, still refuses to
credit the news that Willis bas made a
formal demand on the provisional gov
ernment to surrender its authority to
the queen. "In my opinion," said he,
"tbe status at Honolulu, so far as action
oo the part of our minister is concerned,
is nnchanged. The president has sub
mitted the question to congress, and
there is no doubt in my mind that I •
fully adheres to what he eaid in bis
Prof. Alexander, the Hawaiian gen
tleman who was bsfore the senate com
mittee on foreign relations for two days,
was at the capitol this morning when
the confirmation of yesterday's Asso
ciated Press cable concerning the situ
ation of Hawaii was received. He was
greatly interested in the news, and said
it was not different from what he had
expected. "I don't see what more
Willis can do. The president bas in
structed him not to use force and he
certainly will not disregard these in
structions. There is danger of a clash,
however, and that is the critical point
•t preeent. Tbe queen's adherents will
be emboldened by the action on the
part of Willis, and are likely to do
something at any moment to cause
bloodsbeld, and there is no telling
what the result would be if one persoe
should be killed. The provisional gov
ernment is firmly entrenched, and con
fident of the support of its armed force,
and itrengihefted by tip co^otipn^
of a just cause, it will stand oat against
any encroachment npon its authority,
whether from tbe United States or
others; furthermore, they feel the
the support of the great macs of p
of thia country. Tbnraton ia then
baa of coarse been able to furnish 1'
dent Dole and his supporters with h « r
rect idea of the feeling of the people in
America. This will be very reassuring
to them, and will go a long way towarda
encouraging the preeent government to
atand firm."
The report from San Francisco that
tbe Mohican was preparing for an imme
diate trip to Honolulu is denied by the
navy department. The Mohican and
Ranger were ordered ready for sea
about tbe same time. The Ranger waa
despatched to Central America several
weeks ago. The Mohican has been
ready to put to aea on short notice, bnt

A Kamot That She la to Sail Foat Haste
for Honolulu.
San Fbancisco, Jan. 6. —It is reported
tonight from Mare Island that the Mo
hican haa been nnder ateam all day and
tbat her crew ia unusually buay tonight.
Notwithatanding the denials from Wash
ington it is believed the cruiser will be
dispatched to Honolulu in a few boars.
No one in authority at Mare Island,
however, will reveal anything aa to the
vessel's future movements.
Later —It ia learned from an authori
tative naval source that the Mohican
will not eail for Honolulu for 10 days at
Even if the war veaael ihonld sail
tomorrow, she could not reach tbe
islands more than 24 hours in advance
of the steamship Mariposa, which ia
scheduled to leave here next Thnraday.
Today 10 aailora of tbe Mohican were
given shore liberty, ranging in time
from five to ten daya. The naval offi
cers aay there ia nothing unnanal in the
fact that the Mohican got np ateam.
The Mohican Ready to Ball at • Mo
ment's Notlee.
Vallbjo, Jan. 6.—Today was one of
activity at Mare Island navy yard. The
Mohican waa made ready to sail at a
moment's notice. Executive Officer
wadhem said ihe Mohican cssld carry
260 men. The general opinion among
tha officers here ia that the sitnation in
Hawaii is so serious that the aecretary
of atate dared not give out any news un
til be had consulted the president. It
was positively learned tbat trouble was
imminent, and that Admiral Irwin had
so reported by the Corwin, suggesting
that if the qneen was to be restored the
United States forces now in Honolulu
would be unable to cope with the pro
visional government'a forces. An officer
from tbe navy yard vieited tbe Corwin
on a tug today, presumably to obtain
advice as to the situation at the islands.
The Corwin ia etiil anchored of Red
Rock, and tonight landed an officer at
San Quentin to receive diapatchea.
An Ineantlona Sailor Glvos Out a Little
San Fbancisco, Jan. 5. —The only in
formation obtained from tbe Corwin ia
one eentence, shouted today from the
deck of tbe revenue cutter by an in
cautious sailor. That sentence waa:
"There is serious trouble in Honolulu.''
Before the aailor had a chance to aay
any more, he waa gruffly ordered away
from the rail by an officer.
Harried a Fonrteen-year-old Girl In 1891
Whose Father Has Held Her Since.
After weary months of anxious wait
ing and watching Evan A. Cochran has
gained possession of what he considers a
treasure —a bright eyed, rosy cheeked
wife of 17 summers. Cochran married
Miss Mary Conley, the 14-year-old daugh
ter of Samuel W. Conley, in 1891. Con
ley has kept vigil over his daughter ever
since, guarding her at the point of a
shotgun. Conley had Cochran indicted
in the Putnam superior court forkidnap-
The case was carried to the supreme
court and the decision reversed, that
tribunal holding that Cochran could
claim his lawful wife with her consent
and that Conley could not prevent him
from so doing. Nevertheless, Conley
had the girl, and Cochran could not get
her away from the paternal roof. Coch
ran was granted a writ of habeas cor
pus for the possession of his wife, and
the case was set for trial before his honor
Judge H. W. Baldwin of the county
court Saturday morning. A large
crowd was in the courtroom. The girl
ish looking wife sat beside Sheriff Sears.
Colonel Emerson George appeared for
the plaintiff, and Colonel Q. L. Williford
represented the defendant. Messrs.
Williford and Conley and the girl held a
consultation. The girl told her father
she would go with her husband.
Conley came back into the courtroom,
his face flushed and showing suppressed
excitement. "Judge," said he, "dismiss
the case. I will not detain her further if
she desires to go." Turning to his daugh
ter, the irate father jerked off her hat
and marched outof tbe courtroom. "Mr.
Sheriff, call Mr. Conley back," said
Judge Baldwin. He wae brought into
court, and the judge told him he bad act
ed very unbecomingly in court, and that
he could either pay a fine of $10 or apolo
gize to his daughter then and there and
restore to her the hat which he had so
rudely snatched from her head. Conley
said he would not apologize, but would
pay the fine. The case was then dis
missed. The brido and groom re
ceived the hearty congratulations of a
number of friends present. The happy
couple walked down to a millinery store,
where the groom had the pleasure of
buying his wife a new bridal hat. Thus
a lover who has but one eye and one
leg wins a rather pretty wife after 33
long months of weary waiting, watching
and scheming.—Madison (Ga.) Letter.

Berlin, Jan. 6.—An agreement re
garding the Russian treaty of commerce
has been reached on all points bnt tbe
Russian side, the understanding being
tbat this will take some time. In order
to prevent further difficulties tbe in
terpretation of tbe treaty in tbe German
and Russian languages will be avoided.
The whole will be drafted in French.
The difficulty now is the duration of the
treaty. Russia favors a short and
Germany demand* a long period. The
prospects of its adoption by tbe reich
■tag is diminished. Marguardsen,
Faascbe and Bnrhlin, three influential
members of the National Liberal party,
have publicly announced their inten
tion to vote against the treaty, and it
is feared others will follow their ex
ample, and, as a change of 12 votes
would suffice to defeat tbe treaty, the
impending crisis is brought nearer.
Richter ia preparing an attack npon
the government on the Cameroone af
fair. The attack will be made mainly
on the lines of injudicious eelection of
the officiate entrusted to represent tbe
German power in Africa. These officials
are eaid to be mostly yonng and with
out colonial experience, and tbe bulk of
tbe troubles with the natives, it ia
claimed, originates with the mistakes
they make.
The raising of the American minis
ter, Hon. Theodore B. Runyon, to the
rank of ambassador, has just been
given a fitting significance by a special
compliment paid by tbe emperor, by
driving np to tbe embassy on New
Tear's morning and sending up his
card, personally inviting Runyon
io a reception. Ranyon gave
eclat to the event by driving
np to the palace in splendid
style, with a coachman and two foot
men in blue coats and white cape. The
American eagle waa painted on tbe car-'
riage and tbe trappinge were elaborately
embroidered. The equipage canaed a
great deal of curiosity among tbe people
of Berlin, the colore not yet being fa
miliar to the people of the city.

In view of the great reduction of the
price of flour within the last year, a
great many people have wondered why
bread continues to be sold for 5 rents a
loaf and the' loaf not perceptibly in
creased. The reduction in the price of
flour between Dec. 1, 1892, and Nov.
29, 1898, according to the official quota
tions was as follows: Patent, last year,
$3.35 and $8.55; this year,s?.9s and $3.10.
Extra fancy, last year. $3.05 and $3.15;
this year, $2.65 and $2.75. Fancy, last
year, $2.50 and $2.60; this year, $2.2oand
$2.30. Lower grades, last year, from $3
to $2.35, and about the same at present.
Now, these are the prices at which bak
ers and retailers buy flour, and while
reasonable people do not expect to derive
the whole of an advantage that amounts
to almost 25 per cent, they do expect to
get some benefit in the increase in size of
loaves. Such advantage has not been
theirs. On the contrary, while the loaves
have not increased in size or the price
been reduced, many householders declare
that never before have the poor qualities
in the commercial bread been so con
spicuous. The only explanation that
the bakers and flour dealers can give is
the reduced sales of flour in large lots.
The bakers say that since the reduc
tion people have taken to baking their
own bread to an extent not hitherto
known to the trade since commercial
bread became the fashion. This prac
tice of making bread at home has large
ly reduced sales to retailers, and while
the latter get some reduction in price
they say that the decrease in the sales
has been so great that they cannot afford
to share that advantage with their cus
tomers. But this does not explain tho
almost universal poor quality of the
bread at the present time, and the gro
cers are silent when they are questioned
npon the subject.—St. Louis Republic.

Jacksonville, Fla., Jan. 6. —A story
was current today that Corbett had
written a letter to Mitchell offering to
forego the pnrse and meet him in pri
vate in case tbe contest could not be
pulled off. A telegram is received from
Mitchell denying that Corbett had
written such a letter, and when
the story was sifted, it developed that
Corbett had told Bowden he was so
anxious to fight the Englishman that
he wonld meet him in a room for no
thing, either with gloves or bare
knuckles. Tbe truth seems to be that
the determined opposition of Governor
Mitchell bas taken tbe heart out of tbe
fighters and promoters of tbe contest.
The club ie still talking about bringing
the right off on time. Corbett and
Mitchell are said to be training, but the
majority of the people here do not be
lieve the contest will be allowed in Flor
ida, at least not publicly. If Corbett
and Mitchell get together they will have
to meet secretly, so secretly tbat tbe
governor wili not know they have fought l
until the newspapers so announce. AH
the talk about the club bringing pressure
to bear on the governor to get bim to
"let up" in his opposition, is considered
the veriest rot.
There was a story floating around that
the scene of contest wonld be trans
ferred to Cuba. It is said H. B. Plant,
largely interested in Florida railroads,
and who also controls a steamship line
from Tampa to Havana, had offered
to provide all tbe necessary
transportation for a large crowd
to Havana, provided Corbett and
Mitchell would consent to meet
there. This is a sample of the stories
floating around, and all have more or
less fake about tbem. It is apparent
that the continual talk and uncertainty
has already disgusted a great many
The training of both Corbett and
Mitchell is going on as usual. Visitors

A grocer in one of the poorer quarters
of the town was accosted one day by a
man who asked if he would let him have
a sack of flour and trust him for pay

grocer refused. Going out to the front
of his shop v few minutes later, he found
the man no longer in sight, and one of
the sacks of flour piled up outside was
missing. Summoning the nearest po
