Washington, Dec. 26. The Senate
committee will tomorrow begin the
Hawaiian investigation under Mor-
f;an's resolution. It is presumed the
nvestigation will take the shape of
an inquiry into the conduct of Minis
ter Stevens at the time of the revolu
tion and of Commissioner Blount,
with the possibility of going into the
question of the recognition of the
Provisional Government and also an
investigation as to the regularity of
the Blount appointmenf. It is not yet
known whether the meetings will be
opened to the public or held behind
Pernambuco, Dec. 26. The Bra
zilian dynamite cruiser JNictneroy,
which put to sea yesterday for the
purpose it was said, of engaging in a
battle with tne rebel snips Jtepubiica
and Aquidaban, which, it was re
ported, had gone to the island of Fer
nando de Noronha to impress the con
victs there into the rebel service, re
turned here this morning reporting
that she had been unable to nnd tne
rebel ships. It is now said that the
Nictheroy will await the coming of
the rebel ships here and will right
them in these waters.
The news from Rio Janeiro brings
little that is fresh. Both sides claim
that their opponents are driven to the
last extremity and must soon give in.
The people would be relieved by deci
sive action by eitner party.
Buenos Ayres, Dec. 26. It is ru
mored that Thompson, united btates
Minister to Brazil, has recognized the
Brazilian insurgents as belligerents.
The explosion of a powder magazine
at Uerro nas done immense damage.
Washington, Dec. 26. Not a par
ticle of credence is placed here in the
report from isuenos Ayres that Min
ister Thompson, at Itio, nas recog
nized the insurgents as belligerents.
It is Improbable that Thompson
would take any such step before
receiving instructions from Wash
ington, and it can be stated with as
surance that he has received no such
The cruiser New York has been
ordered to Rio Janeiro to re-enforce
Minister Mendonca believes the
crisis in the Brazilian revolution is at
hand and that a decisive stroke will
be made this week. He says the two
great ironclads of the rebel comman
der Mello and the flotilla of torpedo
craft hastily improvised by Peixoto
are rapidly nearing each other. The
Minister says that a collision is al
most certain before next Monday. He
recognizes that the little torpedo and
dynamite boats are tremendously
overmatched by the rebel ships, but
counts much on the ability of the
small boats to maneuver quickly and
discharge their novel explosives.
Mendonca is hopeful and confident
that Mello's fleet will be defeated and
Peixoto's ships will then be able to
turn their attention to the other rebel
admiral, Gama, who is in Rio harbor.
Trade in the Gilberts.
f The news that comes from the Gil
bert islands shows that one more
source of American trade in the South
' i i I, l i 1 " i. t-:.
jseus lias uteu jiauucu uy mi l-
ain. Five years ago Americans con
trolled the lucrative trade of these
islands and the American flag was
known over all the group. Now the
American trader is held in contempt
and our flag is no longer seen, simply
because the British have assumed a
protectorate over Butaritari and will
soon have all the islands under Eng
lish rule. The natives are easily in
fluenced and the impressive presence
of a British cruiser is enough to awe
them into obedience. They have seen
Uncle Sam's flag and his officials trea
ted with contempt, and from this time,
on England may count on getting all
the trade of the islands. This is hard
on the men who devoted years to
building up this trade, but it is a pro
cess that has becomo very familiar in
the South seas. Hawaii is about
the only place in the wide Pacific
where Americans control the trade,
and even this advantage Cleveland
has done his best to kill. S. F. Chron
Available Cash Balance.
Washington, Dec. 26. The pros
pects are that during the present week
the available cash balance in the trea
sury will reach a lower figure than
ever before recorded in its history. At
the close of business Saturday the bal
ance was $90,4S7,26S, and it is gener
ally expected that it will fall below
$90,000,000 during the week. The
total balance the first of the present
month was $95,199,615, showing a re
duction during the month of $4,712,
348. This loss, however, has fallen
more largely on the currency balance
than on the gold reserve. A marked
excess of expenditures over receipts, it
is now believed, will show the defici
ency in the revenues at the close of
the calendar year to be about $37,000,-
Ambition of Grssbanu
New York, Dec. 26. The Commer
cial Advertiser's Washington special
says: The presence of Hopkins, the
newly elected Mayor of Chicago, In
Washington, and the fact that ho had
an interview with Cleveland ami
Gresham last evening, has started
again the talk about the design on the
part of Cleveland to assist Gresham
in securing his election to the Senate,
if possible. Cleveland is credited with
wanting to provide for Gresham and
also with the fear that if the Demo
crats should be enabled tc elect a suc
cessor to Cullom in the Senate, W. It.
Morrison might get the place.
Made a Mistake.
If Gresham ever had any ambition
to enter the Senate he ought to dis
miss it now. Even with Cleveland's
backing he would And it very hard
work to light against the strong nub
ile prejudice that has been created by
his course in the Hawaiian affair.
Gresham would htave made himself
one of the most popular men in the
country if he had flatly refused to fol
low Cleveland's lead in the Hawaiian
business and had retired from the
Cabinet. Such a move would have
shown his good judgment as well as
his independence, and it would have
insured him any publio preferment
that he-desired. S. F. Chronicle.
Cape Town. Dec. 26. Commis
sioner Rhodes has arrived at Palapye
and announced that the Matabeles are
entirely subjugated and that Xing
Lobengula does not intend to return
to Bulawayo. Major Forbes, Selous
and Eustace will return by easy stages
to this place.
London, Dec. 26. The preliminary
arrangements for the Queen's visit to
Florence are completed and the con
tract for the tenancy of the Villa Fab
bricotti has been signdd by Colonel
Slade, the military attache at Rome.
The villa is a fine, stately building.
The terrace commands a splendid view
It is probable there will he a family
gathering in Coburg, including the
German Emperor and Empress, Prince
and Princess Henry of Prussia, the
Grand Duke of Hesse, Princess Alix,
and the Prince and Princess of Mein
ingen. The Queen will stay there
about a week.
Trouble in San Domingo.
New London, Dec. 26. Rear-Admiral
Stanton has received the official
papers in his allairs relating to the
salute of Mello ; also has orders to
proceed immediately to San Domingo,
where parties are supposed to be plot
ting for the overthrow of President
Heureaux, who ordered a prominent
General and his family on the island
to be executed. Stanton will leave
January 3d and go to Port-au-Prince,
where he. will meet the Kearsarge,
now on the way there, upon which he
will hoist his flag and proceed to the
scene of trouble.
A Big Fire.
What is known as the Printing dis
trict of San Francisco sullered a big
loss by fire on Christmas day. The
heaviest losers were Francis, Valen
tine & Co., the printers, whoso loss is
estimated to be $150,000. The build
ing occupied by the Call and the Bul
letin was also injured to the extent of
$2000. Blake, Moflit & To woe will
lose about $25,000, and other losses
will bring the total up to about
London, Dec. 26. The officer of the
British gunboot Boomerang, writing
from Sydney, N. S. W., gives an ac
count of the punishment inflicted on
the Pentecost island cannibals. They
murdered four members of the crew
of the American schooner Don Henry
last September, and murdered a por
tion of the crew of a French vessel.
The Boomera ng and French warship
SchoriiF landed detachments of ma
rines and . defeated the cannibals in
several engagements and burned their
The French and British commanders
also captured those directly implicated
in the murder. They were all sen
tenced to imprisonment for life at the
French convict settlement at Nou
mea. At Pentacost island alone over thirty
white men have been massacred and
robbed. Large quantities of human
bones and other remains were found,
indicating beyond doubt that the can
nibals had other victims.
Candidacy of Harrison.
New York, Dec. 27. The America
says: It has just leaked out that
friends of ex-President Harrison have
Jerfected an organization and formal
y gone to work to make him the Re
publican standard-bearer in 1896.
Major E. G. Rathbone, of Ohio, is in
charge of the movement.
Major Rathbone was Fourth Assist
ant Postmaster-General under the last
Administration. He for inany yer.rs
was connected with the United States
Secret Service, and established quite
a reputation a.s a skillful detective.
He was one of Harrison's lieutenants
at the Minneapolis convention.

Louisville (Ky.), Dec. 26. Chas.
