IMPOBTERS, BUILDERS' HARDWARE GENERAL Victoria (B. C.;, Feb. 10. It was not until they arrived here that John tone, Cranstoun and Mueller.tbe three political prisoners deported from Ho nolulu by the Warrimoo, learned the nature of the charges preferred against them that they had conspired to destroy with dynamite the Central Union Church at a time it was shel tering many friends of the Hawaiian Republic, and ihe executive Build ing. This charge they pronounced absolutely false and ridiculous in the extreme, and their sworn denial will will be forwarded to Honolulu by the returning Warrimoo. In the mean time the trio refuse, to leave the steamer, and have Initiated damage proceedings against James Huddart, owner of the Canadian-Australian line, claiming they were forcibly kid ' napped from the Hawaiian capital. VAHceuvEB (B. C.)f Feb. 10. On their arrival here, Cranstoun, Mueller and Johnstone, the Hawaiian exiles, requested the Examiner correspond ent to call the attention of Colonel Peterson to their case. Colonel Peter son, on hearing their story, had the 'men provided with board and lodging, ton. None of the men are provided with clothing fit for this climate, and Cranstoun shook like an aspen leaf as he stood on the deck of the steamer in his thin suit and straw hat. DIPLOMATIC COMPLICATIONS. New York, Feb. 11. The Herald's Washington special says: Hawaii may be called upon for an apology and Indemnity as a result of the alleged action of the Dole Government in ex iling J. Cranstoun, American citizen, without trial. Borne excitement was created at the State Department today by re ceipt of a dispatch from the U. 8. , Commercial Agent in Vancouver, Wm. Peterson, confirming the press dispatches concerning the banishment of this man from Hawaiian territory. The dispatch was short, but it was sufficient to create a stir. It read in this way : "The British steamer Warrimoo arrived today, having on board J. Cranstoun, a destitute citizen of the United States, banished from Hono- 1 t A m. a a mm. mm wunouc iriai." The action of the Hawai an authori ties Is regarded as one of the most serious phases of the recent trouble in the Paradise of the Pacific. Admin istration officials have anticipated that difficulty would arise with the Dole Government, in which Americans would be involved, but they have never believed that President Dole would go so far as to dare to banish American citizens, at least until after they had had a fair trial. Should later Information bear out the contents of Mr. Peterson' tele gram today, the United States will follow its USUal COUI-ba and riomnn.t an apology and full indemnity for dam ages sustained by Cranstoun. Minister Willis ha9 been instructed to furnish the Department with lull details, and it Is expected that the re port will soon reach Washington. The authorities are not at all wor ried at the advices contained in the press dispatches today, that the Ha waiian Government has not yet made a reply to the request of Minister Wiliia to defer the execution of cer tain condemned all citizens of the United States. When he has forwarded all the facts to Washington, for they believe that the Dole Government will not dare to disregard tbe request, especially with the Philadelphia in the harbor of Ho nolulu. A BAD REPUTATION'. Seattle (Wash.), Feb. 11.

He was in hard straits when he left, and barely had enough money to take him to Honolulu. His friends were not at all surprised when they heard that he had taken part in the rebellion, and say he is just the man to get into such affairs. Many predicted that be would get into some kind of trouble when he went to the islands. Cranstoun is an Englishman, having been born and raised near London, and is believed only to have declared his intentions, and not to have been fully naturalized. He is described as being intensely English in all his thoughts and actions. During his residence in this city. Cranstoun had several shady transac tions with dissolute women, and about jorce years ago was buncoed for about by one of them.

The northward march of New York during the pxt half century has caused Fordham to bo included within the city liicits of New York and has given the tir.3 cottago many neigh bors. The cottago is of wood and looks not unlike one of the JSi.aufytown houses built by the numerous squatters on the rocks in upper New York. - Its roof is covered with shingles, and the walls wer or.co painted white, but tno rams una storms of passing years have worn the paint away. Along tho front runs a narrow porch, in front of wmcn is a sturdy cherry tree that Poe planted in 1847 and which still bears a good crop of fruit. On tho lower floor are two large rooms and a kitchen. The iront room was the bedroom of tho ooet's child wife, Virginia Clem Poe, and here ner gentle spirit took leave of earth. She uieo: or consumption in 1847. and it is related that the family was so poor that mere was not sufficient bedclothing upon the bed to keep her warm, and that the poet's overcoat covered her and a pet cat nestled in her bosom. The other large room on the ground floor was the dining and sitting room wnere .r 00 received his visitors. At ono end of the room is a hucre stone chimnev. and there is a narrow hall from which steep stairs lead to a low attio which the poet utilized as his study. There are tiny-paned windows, and the slon ing Fides of the roof aro 60 near the floor that ono can barely stand erect in the room. 1 et here oe is said to havo writ ten nis marvelous musical poem, "Tho Bells," tho pathetic "Annabel Leo" and nis last notable poem, the weird "Ul lumo."

The cottage is at present owned by Austin E. Ford and is in cellent state of preservation that it will srana many years if spared by fire and the real estate speculator. It is open to sightseers, and hundreds of tourists visit it every day. There is a visitors bonk. and the registration Bhows that twohIa from all over the world are drawn to the spot Not far from the cottage is St John's college, which Poe often visited, and tnere are several residents of Fordham who knew the poet welL Thev describe him as a quiet, courteous man who was a gentleman even when pursuing his unsteady way along the Kingsbridga roaa as tne result or nis intemperance. The rent of the cottage was only 65 a year, but it was largely unpaid when he left, owing to his impoverished condi tion, and lie was also mourned by his butcher, grocer and milkman. Literature was an unremunerativo fiold in New lork m Poo's day, and it is said that part of tho timo while Poe occupied the Fordham cottage his salary on Tho Evening Mirror was onlv 210 a wet.
