POLITICAL AFFAIRS ABROAD.
.The foreign
news by tho Ala
meda is of more than usual inter
eat. Dispatches from Chile are
contradictory and perhaps equally
nnreliablo when representing either
tide of the question, but the bal
ance of evidence as far as we can
judge at this distanco appears to
be in favor of the insurgents. From
Iquique in the north it is reported,
February 9th, that the insurgents
are maintaining a strict blockade
oi me town, ana mat it is only a
question of a few days or hours
when they will have complete con
trol of the city. A German steamer
arriving at Callao reports a Cbi
lean corvette (presumably insur
gent) patrolling the Straits of Ma
gellan, and at Coronel, a cooling
port in tho south, she saw the
Esmeralda fire repeatedly on the
forts of tho town-and drove the
rebel troops on store inland. The
blockading vessels in the port of
Valparaiso keep a strict watch
over tbe port, and would not allow
the Roma to enter, she accordingly
landed her Valparaiso freigbt at
Coquimbo. A. small sheet printed
at Valparaiso says, "Up to Janu
ary 31st Iquique, Valparaiso and
Coneepcion remained faithful to
the Constitution and supported the
army which is patrioticaliy defend
ing tho interests of the people and
nation. -At Santiago the largest
meeting ever held in Chile passed
resolutions calling on President
Balmaceda to give proof ot his
patriotism and change his politica
advisers. The Supreme Court in
Santiago has endorsed the conduct
of Congress, and stated that vari
ous acts of Balmaceda since Jan
uary 1st arc illegal. The British
ships Champion, Acorn, and the
Pheasant are on the Chilean
coast and tho Flagship Warspite
expected momentarily, February
9th, at Valparaiso. Coquimbo and
La Suena are aiding the insur
gents. The U. S. S. Baltimore is
expected to arrive in Chilean
waters in the second week in
March, when, it is supposed, Ad
miral McCaun will shift his flag
from the Pensacola to the Balti
more. It is also probable that the
Charleston will join the South Pa
cific Squadron, instead of tho San
Francisco which will be attached
to the iforth Pacific Squadron as
Flagship of Admiral Brown.
Tho Canadian elections up to
March 9th, give the numbers as,
117 Conservatives and 93 Liberals,
being a majority for the former of
24, with five constituencies yet to
be heard from. This, though a
smaller majority than was expect
ed by Sir John Macdonald and his
friends is held by the Conservative
party to be satisfactory.
For Hawaiian news which is
Veally new we must look abroad.
At Chicago, on March 6th, a Mr.
Gladding of San Francisco, who is
" thoroughly acquainted with Ha
waiian affairs," says, "I believe tbe
report that General Ashford is in
possession of Hawaii, for I know
what kind of a man the General is.
He (Asbford) told me three montbs
ago that the native party was
weak and the missionary party not
over strong. What is wanted is
some enterprising man to head r
movement to securo tho sympa
thisers from both parties. I be
lieve now," says this well-informed
gentleman, " that the enterprising
man he meant was none other than
himself. I am certain," proceeds
this well-informed, etc., " that Ash
ford was in London two weeks
before the King's death, but
ho must have reached
Honolulu in 'the Charleston
which conveyed Kalakaua's body
home!!" "I would not be surprised
to learn by next steamer from
Honolulu that Volney V. Ashford,
llhnoisan, was handling tho Ha
waiian Kingdom," etc.
At. Clicatc;0'-i.lo M.r. Abtr&Ltkixk i
Hoffnung, Hawaiian Charge
d' Affaires in London, has also been
interviewed, and " smiled when his
attention was drawn to a dispatch
stating that one Volney V. Ash
ford was at the head of an insur
rection against tho Queen. It is
most improbable." "The
report, too, about the Queen call
ing for the resignation of the Min
isters is doubtless incorrect."
It is not unlikely that a treaty
will be made with Australia, with
the result that certain of tho privi
leges which the United States now
mi TTfi . J
oniov wouia cease, ine umieu
States, though, is the natural mar
ket of Hawaii, and a very littlo
r
effort on the part of this (the U. S
Government) would retain all the
privileges it now enjoys."
The Chief of the Bureau of
Yards and Docks in the Navy Do
partment, speaking of the approp
riation of $700,000 for a naval dock
at Pearl River, said nearly all of
this lanre amount would be re-
quired to blow up the reef at the
mouth of tho harbor, and several
hundred thousand more would be
required to build the dock.
1 find ought to have been credited
to tho " Honolnlu Diocesan Maga
zine'published under the direction
of the Bishop, so in the matter of
the Rev. Mr. Gowen's non-return
probably the wish was father to
the thought. Anglican. -

CORRESPONDENCE.
We do not bold ourselves responsible for (he
statements made, or opinions expressed by our
correspondents.
OUR SAX FRANCISCO LETTER.
I'er O. S. H. Alameda, S.sn Francisco,
March 7. 1891.
(From our special correspondent.)
' Regarding Rev. Mr. Gowen.
JlE. .Editor: a paragraph m
this morning's Advertiser has at
tracted a good deal of attention
from tho many friends in this city
of the Kev. U. ti. liowen, who is
said to have "definitely announced
to the Secretary of the Society for
the Propagation of tho Gospel that
no nas no intention oi returning
Honolulu."
Mr. Gowen's friends would be
glad to learn whence this piece o
information was derived, as it con
flicts directly with tbe latest cor
respondence addressed by Mr,
Gowen to this country.
several letters were received
here by tbe last mail from Mr
G., who writing from Great Yar
mouth on the 13th February last say
" I am sorry 1 can't return
at once partly because I have prom
ised to abide by the Archbishop's
advice, and partly because I am
hoping for a more satisfactory ar
rangement before my return." Mr.
Gowen speaks of his present work
and derangement of his plans by
unexpected delay, but hopes that a
month hence certain correspond
ence will have reached a stage that
may enable him to look forward
more clearly.
The paragraph in the Advertiser
Concluded.
The Tourist Business.
A. Usee, who represents the Oceanic
Steamship Company as their tourist
agent, ba leen doing a great service for
the I&lamls in Southern California,
whither he went to work up the tourist
business. He has sent circular after
circular to all the most noted visitors to
the state this year, and when invited to
call he has ita parted to them much
valuable information about the Islands.
San Francisco News.
A scandal has been created at Sacra
mento by the statement in the Exam
iner that Elwood Bruner, representative
from Sacramento, has been bartering
places on the San Francisco police force
for $400.
The Southern Pacific Company has
been heavily damaged by recent storms
in Southern California. Many washouts
are reported and the city of Yuma has
been flooded.

propriation bill just passed by Congress

been found on the rocks near where the
Elizabeth was lost. The wreckage of the
Klizabetb is being gone over by Captain
T. P. H. Whitelaw.
The Chinatown highbinders are pre
paring for another battle, the opposing
societies beine the Eh Ying Tong and
c'ney Sing Tong.
The Nicaragua Canal.
The Nicaragua Canal Bill which gave
promise of a successful career m the
earlier part of the last session of Con
gress, and which caused a great deal cf
hot discussion, was gradually relegated
to oblivion and was finally lost sight of
entirely during the wind-up of the ses
sion. The objections to it were princi
pally Democratic and directed toward
the doctrine of giving Government sup
port to private corporations. An at
tempt was made to save the measure by
offering an amendment providing that
after aterm of years subsequent to the
completion of the canal, it should be de
livered to tbe Government upon the pay
ment to the canal company of 5 per cent
of the $10,000,000 advanced by the Gov
ernment. This effort failed and when it
was shown that the expenditure of this
immense amount of money was to be in
the charge of private parties and not
under Government supervision, the bill
lost its charms, and was never called up
With a Jarjre democratic majority in
the next House there is no possibility of
the bill getting favorable consideration
for two years at lsast.
