TI1K SECRETARY OF STATE HAS HIS HANDS FULL.
-The Evening World, New York.
rO THE DEVIL'S
Mr. Thurston Pays His Compliments
Latter Hired by the New IT orb Poet to
Write Anti-Annexation Material
Treasury Alls r euros en tat ion.
Mr. Editor : When it is proposed
that the Catholic Church shall can
nonizea man and place his name upon
the catalogue of saints, in order to
prevent unworthy additions to that
honorable list it is customary to select
a cardinal of ability whose duty it is
to marshal and present to the Pope all
evidence and possible reasons why
such distinction should not be con
ferred. The man who is assigned to
this disagreeable duty is appropriately
designated as "the devil's advocate."
I was informed some kittle time
Bince that the New York Evening
Poet had sent Mr. Julius Palmer to
Honolulu, not to write an impartial
account of the Hawaiian revolution,
but to "work up material against an
nexation." "Whether such was the
case I did not know; but in this morn
ing's Advertiser I find over Mr.
Palmer's own signature the statement
that his mission is to "photograph
and exhibit at their worst" the condi
tions in Hawaii, and says "there is
the soundest reason for doing this,"
because "if a man wishes to marry
my sister it is my duty to ascertain
not the best but the very worst which
can be eaid of his character. Your
Government avows its intention to
make alliance with mine," and that
he is engaged in working up the argu
ment to prevent it.
I feel under deep obligations to Mr.
Palmer for thus openly declaring him
self to be the devil's advocate, and
that he is professedly presenting the
blackest possible phase of Hawaiian
conditions, for the express purpose of
preventing the elevation of Hawaii to
the honorable position of a member
of the Americau Union. He comes
out hito the open and makes his
declaration Instead of skulking in the
shadows and masquerading as an
impartial investigator who is giving
the result of his researches from the
standpoint of fairness and truth after
considering all of the conditions.
I hope that the Y. Post" will be
as fair as Mr. Palmer is, and state at the
head of each of Mr. Palmer's articles,
"Take notice that there is another
side to the statements hereunder
made, and a more or less satisfactory
reply aud explanation to each of the
charges therein made."
This is sim pi v the pJea oi Julius A.
Palmer, the devil's advocate, ap
pointed to write up and report to Pope
God kin the "very worst" that can be
said about Hawaii, to be used here
after as ammunition against annexa
tion. I take the liberty of reminding
Mr. Palmer,, however, that it is a rule
that the devil's advocate must confine
himself to the strict truth. I have
not had the pleasure of seeing all of
Mr. Palmer's valuable reports, but in
one of his telegraphed dispatches pub
lished about the first of this month
there was contained the statement in
effect that the balance of cash shown
bv the Hawaiian treasury is a purely
fictitious one, it being simply a de
posit to secure payment of outstand
ing certificates of deposit.
There is very little excuse for this
error, as the treasury statement is
published in detail each week, show
ing in separate accounts the amount
on depv..., " to secure the outstanding
certificates of utHw'f and Hie other
moneys in the treasury.
On the 18th of March last, about the
time Mr. Palmer's dispatch was writ
ten showing the "very worst" that
could be 9aid about the finances of
Hawaii, the treasury statement for
the week ending March lj, 1S'J",
shows that on March 16, 189-5, there
was then cash in the treasury in addi
tion to the special deposit securing
outstanding certificates of deposit as
Loan funds $ 40,074.01
Cash in Postal .Savings
Bank 131,107 ",4
Road moneys 39,064 22
School moneys 6,176.60
Receipts from general reve
Total cash balance 1452,219.74
In addition there was in the treas
ury $287,000 on special deposit secur
ing every dollar of outstanding certi
ficates of deposit.
From the frank and open manner in
which Mr. Palmer has stated his ob
ject in coming here, I have no doubt
that after verifying the above figures
he will apologize to Minister Damon
and telegraph to the Post by the first
opportunity that his previous "very
worst" dispatch about the "fictitious
balance" in the Hawaiian Treasury
was all wrong, he not having taken
the trouble to first verify that state
ment, having obtained his informa
tion from a very reliable royalist
gossip. That he will set forth the
true state of the Treasury is, of course,
not to be asked nor expected, as that
would not furnish any ammunition
against annexation, which is ail that
Mr. Palmer has been hired to find.

BATTLE TACTICS. '
Successful Praotice of Company E
at Kakaako Yesterday.
Twenty-six men of Company E,
under Captain John Good, were
given their first exercise in battle
tactics at Kakaako yesterday after
noon. Four silhouettes in black
were placed on right and left bulk
heads, the company firing in line,
distant 200 yards. Squads were
deployed from center, right and
left, the first advancing a specified
distance, kneel and fire, supported
in turn by other sections in order.
Seven rushes were made, the com
pany forming into line on double
quick to within fifty yards of the
targets, firing at will. A constant
fusilade was kept up for several
minutes, the practice ending in a
rapid charge bayonets close to ob
Considering the rough and wet
ground the movements were well
executed, and the result showed ex
tremely good markmanship. Skir
mish tactics are never particularly
pleasing to observe, but very effect
ive in warfare. The men of Com
pany E acquitted themselves
creditably throughout the move
ments, the squad under Lieutenant
King working witb decision worthy
Lieutenant King preserved the
silhouettes for future reference.
HERMAN KRAFT INJURED.
Collar Bone Broken and Otherwise
Hurt in a Collision.
Herman Kraft met with a severe
and painful accident shortly after
8 o'clock yesterday morning. He
was driving into town from his

horse of a passing mounted patrol
man. The brake was upset and
the old gentleman thrown out, he

bone to be broken, together with a
number of ether injuries. Mr.
Kraft remained unconscins from
the time of the accident until uft..

late hour last night the injured
man was resting comfortably.

Credit to whom credit is due muMt
be said of those who made a huccosh
of the regimental hop given in the
Drill Shed last night. The efforts of
the men who labored so aMslduoualy
were rewardod with perhaps the moat
brilliant event of the kind ever given
on the Inlands,
The Drill Hlu d was a blaze of light,
aud the graceful movemenltt of the
daucers,couped with tho sweet itraiUM
from the orchestra, made the whole
an entrancing scene.
The entrance to the Irill Shed wan
kept closed from the inqulHltivo gazi
of watchers on the outside, y skil
fully arranged Hawaiian flagH. Run
ning from this on both tides were the
Hags of various nations, draped pret
tily over and on the partitions of th'
different company quarters. Artisti
cally get in among thene was an abun
dance of palms and ferns, giving a trop
ical appearance to the surrounding.
At the back was a curtain formed
of a large American flag joined to the
Hawaiian ensign, and arranged at tho
point of union so as to form a grace
ful doorway to the dining room in the
extreme rear. Just above tl.i door
way was suspended a large back-
? ;round of ferns, on which wuh worked
n coreopsis blossoms, the word
Hanging from the cross beams were
a great number of small flagH, pen
nants and ensignH of various forms.
The arrangement of the electric Jighf
among these was a matter of com men! .
The wires were lengthened or short
ened to variouH IeugthH, casting sil
very shadows here and there, and
lighting up the tfagH, pennants and
ensigns. Eight strings of Japanese
lanterns led from various noints to one
common center of the nail. These,
although unllghted, were shown to
great advantage by the electric lights.
Liquid refreshments were served in
a place set apart at the upper left
hand corner of the hall.
Professor Berger's band was sta
tioned on a temporary raised platform
next the quarters of Company f , and
furnished delightful mush; during tin-

At 11 o'clock the dining room was
thrown open aud a bountiful spread
prepared by Caterer Chapman was
partaken of with relish.

Hatch, Miss Severance, Mesdames H.

Alfred Magoon and Allen TowJc
The different committes discbarged
their onerous duties in a most satis
factory manner, reflecting credit on
themselves and rendering valuable as
sistance in making the occasion what
it was in every sense a success.
News was received at the police
station early last night from Wai
anae that four Japanese employed
on the railway extension had been
seriously injured. The men were
engaged in blasting and a prema
ture explosion resulted in two of
the Japanese almost entirely los
ing their eyesight, the others sus
taining severe injuries about the
head and body. The men started
to Honolulu on foot from Wuianae
shortly after 8 o'clock, and up to
going to press had not reached the
city, rendering further particulars
