STORY OF THE DEPORTATIOH. What Dame Rumor and the Officials Have to Say. MINISTER WILLIS TALKS FICEELY. Attorney-Oenr nd Coniul BI11U Tell What They Know Flat Denial on All Slde-How the Story Rn ! How the "Whole! DP,tn" Came Out. A more contagious fever of rumor news never struck this community than that which swept over the town previous to the departure of the Mariposa. To all appearances they were founded on fact and more than one man was ready to stake his "little all" on naming the po litical prisoners whom the Govern ment was intending to send out of the country. Plenty of men and women at the wharf expected to have an op portunity to bid farewell to Greig, Widemann and Marshall, and Dame Rumor only knows who else, and when they were disap pointed, everybody with a "straight tip" wondered what it all meant. Not a few were so certain of what was to happen that they said they were prepared to enter a protest, should events confirm the predic tions. The crowd waited no prisoners appeared. The crowd continues to wait, and the prisoners, with one exception, are behind the walls of Oahu Prison. Then the crowd began to look about for reasons. The story, as it passed from mouth to mouth, was rather feaei ble, and ran something like the following: The Government had decided to deport some ten prison ers, among them being Widemann, Greig and Marshall. The presence of Judge Widemann on the wharf with a hand satchel and a guitar added credence to the Widemann part of the story. The Government was prepared to carry out its plans, when Minister Willis protested against men convicted of political crimes being put on board a vessel flying the American flag. ' Further more, the recent immigration laws of the United States, would not allow any such men to enter the . country. In pursuance with this idea Consul Mills had held the clearance papers of the vessel until assurance was received that no attempt would-be made to put these men on board. Presi dent Dole and Ministers King and Smith were on the steamer and got together in the captain's cabin. There they were rumored to have come to a decision that they had better let the matter lay over to some more auspicious season. Con sul Mills went on board with the clearance papers' and the steamer sailed, a little after 5 o'clock with but one political passenger and he a most willing member of the ship's company. This is the story and to prove its truth or falsity a representative of the Advertiser called upon members of the Gov ernment, Minister Willis and Con sul Mills. Attorney-General Smith said, "I can't see how such a thing got started. We have not thought of such a thing as de porting any men who have been before the Court. I think we have more use for Greig and Widemann here than in the United States. There is no foundation whatever for the rumor." Consul Mills was seen at the American Legation last evening. He said : "I had no official notice of any deportation. I heard the rumor on the street, and went to the steamer to see what truth there was in it. Marshall is the only man of the three that our Govern ment has an interest in. I didn't refuse the clearance papers or think of it. We usually have con siderable correspondence which we take to Jie steamer after the mail has closecl, and I usually have the clearance papers filled out so as to take them down with the late let ters. I had no communications from the Government or Mr. Willis." When Minister Willis was asked whether he had received any notice of an intended deportation of pris oners, he replied, "No, I was in formed quite to the contrary, I did not enter any protest or make any request to hold the steamer. In fact, I have not yet filed the protest consequent to the deporting affair last Saturday. It is farthest from my purpose or desire to take any action which would tend to embarrass this Government. I have the most friendly feelings toward the officials. I know they are pressed with many difficult questions, and are using their best judgment in the solution of the problems. Of course, it is iny duty to look after th interests of Anir r ican citizens, but I most certainly have no intention of making any unnecessary trouble for the repre pentatives of the Government in so doing. I had no information that a deportation was intended today' ALOHA NUI DOC. Genial California Physician Makes a Tour of the Islands. Affable, amiable, all round jolly good fellow, Dr. H. W. McDaniels, than whom there in none more popular and accomplished physician and surgeon in California, returned to his home in SaDta Clara. CaL, yes terday by the Mariposa after a visit of six weeks spent in touring the islands. Dr. McDaniels was called to Honolulu to attend Mr. E. B.

After due attendance on the injury of Mr. Fowler, Dr. McDaniels con cluded to extend his stay in the isl ands and commenced systematic sight seeing. When he had been but one week in Honolulu the insurrection broke ont. He immediately volunteered his services to the Government and went to the front, where he performed efficient service. This action soon brought Dr. McDaniels intopromio ence and acquaintance with the people of the islands. Being of a naturally genial man ner, the doctor soon counted friends by the score and became a pronoun ced favorite in the highest circles of society and enjoyed an enviable reputation. .
