MAY MKAM BATTLE ARD MAY NOT To Met I English Cruiser Bo.val Arthur Conjectures Among Jary Officers Keeping Close Watch oa American Interest.', in Central America Etc San Diego, April 11. The United States steamship Monterey left port at 10 o'clock this morning and headed for tho south. The righting machine dropped down the bay and over the bar at half-speed, but when once clear of tho heads and her course shaped di rectly south, the long straight line of black smoke falling rapidly astern showed that the half-speed had been greatly increased. POSSIBLE NAVAL BATTLE. San Francisco, April 12. "The Monterey is undoubtedly going to Corinto, Nicaragua, and not to Cal lao," said Dr. Hitbett, surgeon of the Bennington, now at Mare Island, last night. "Xo matter what the dis patches may say, we in the navy feel sure that she is going down the coast to meet the Royal Arthur, the large FJnglish cruiser which is headed that way. The Monterey is probably sent to watch the big English ship. In the event of trouble a fight between these two vessels would be worth see ing. The Royal Arthur is the best of her class. At long range she would be no match for the Monterey, but she might make it interesting for her at short quarters. 'The Monterey could not be han dled as quickly as the Englishman and at short range might suffer from torpedoes. Out at sea, however, the Royal Arthur would be no match for tbr Monterey. Her big guns would make no impression on the Monterey and those of the latter would probably lift the Englishman out of the water. In the navy out here there is no such feeling as that the Monterey could cope with the Royal Arthur. On the contrary, it is the belief that at a fair distance the big cruiser would be no match for the Californian. It looks as though the Government also thought so, and, as it is apparently expecting trouble in that direction, it is pretty safe to conjecture that Corinto is the Monterey's destination, rather than Callao." BRITISH CRUISERS ON HAND. Panama, April 7. The British cruiser Wild Swan has arrived, and she will probably join the cruiser Royal Arthur in a hostile demonstra tion at Corinto, Nicaragua, in case the Nicaraguan Government fails to pay Great Britain's claim for the expul sion of Pro consul Hatch. El Cronista prints an editorial today severely censuring the action of Nica ragua in permitting an armed expedi tion to leave GreytowTn to attack Bo cas del Toro. The paper calls upon Colombia to demand an immediate explanation and satisfaction from Ni caragua. It adds that the President of Nicaragua has given $100,000 and a quantity of arms to Eloy Alfaro for the support of expeditions against Co lombia and Ecuador. 1. LUllOKALAM'S FAD. Has the Finest Collection of Kope Knots in the World. Washington, April 9. "Hawaii's deposed queen has a fad of rope knots made by sailors of different nationali ties," says Professor Otis, the mason of the Smithsonian institution, and the result is the finest and largest collection of the kind in the world. Every conceivably device and twist that could be given a rope by the dex terious fingers of men from all parts of the world is shown in her set. Museums of the civilized world will become active bidders for its posses sion if the opportunity is ever offered them. ' This action on the part of Liliuo kalani shows she is a woman consid erably above what she has been rated in the way of intelligence. The plan ning and carrying into execution of such a novel as well as interesting col lection evinces a higher order of in tellect than we have been led to ex pect from a woman of her surround ings and temperament, and the Ha waiian monarch's knots collection will make her more famous than any thing else she has attempted. New I'aeific Mail Steamers. A late New York dispatch ?ays the Pacific Mail Company has recently bought two other large vessels besides the Aztec, called the CTBritn and the India, which will be used at Panama and Aca pulco for coal storage, and will afford facilities fur much more eco nomy in handling coal. The net floatir.g debt of the Pacific Mail to day is stated to be not more than $50,000. M FOR THE ROYALISTS Customs Officials Keeping a Close Watch on the Wahlberg. ANOTHBB FII.IUl STEKIX; TRIP The Schooner is Acting Suspiciously and is Thought to he Waiting for Another Contraband Cargo of Mu nition or War for the Island San Diego, April 7. Small craft arriving from down the coast re port the schooner Wahlberg hover ing about in the vicinity of Cape Colnett, Lower California. It will be remembered that after the Wahlberg waB released she cleared from this port on an expe dition after a cargo of guano to Guadaloupe island. Old timers along the ''front" were suspicious of the clearance, as it is well known that Guadaloupe island has been thoroughly divested of guano, and it appears that their suspicions were well founded. The skipper of one of the recent arrivals says he talked with one of the crew of the Wahlberg off Cape Colnett, and the sailor said the master of the Wahl berg did not seem to care whether he found any guano or not, as no search had been made, and, in fact, the schooner had done nothing but lay off and on in the vicinity of the cape for some time as if waiting for some one. It is thought that nossibly the schooner is waiting for another contraband cargo of munitions of war for the Hawaiian royalists, as the isolated position of the cape would afford an excellent oppor tunity for an undertaking of that sort. Word has passed along the coast of the suspicious actions of schooner, and the Mexican author ities are watching the coast line closely. The customs authorities in this city are also inspecting every shipment that leaves this port for the south. AGGRESSIVE FOREIGN! POLICY Frye Would Have Uncle Sam Annex Kverything in Sight. Senator William P. Frye of Maine in a recent official interview upon the foreign relations of the United States said: "I would not submit to any in sult, to any aggressions on our rights, to any violation of the Monroe doc trine, to any interference with Hawaii or Samoa so far as our interests are concerned, or with our project of con structing the Nicaragua canal." "What would be your policy as to the future?" "I would annex the Hawaiian Isl ands at once, improve and fortify Pearl Harbor, lay a cable from there to the Pacific Coast. I would main tain our coaling station at Pago Pago against the world. I would reach out to take whatever in our opinion was or might be necessary to our future commercial supremacy, being careful not to violate the laws of nations, and to be able to justify our conduct. Jf Spain, by her actions at any time, justified us in so doing, I would seize and hold Cuba against the world. This island has been nothing but a sponge, to be squeezed by Spain ut terly regardless of the interests of the people living there. Annexed to our country it would soon become a para dise. "The residents are entirely fit for American citizenship. I regard the acquisition of Cuba as imperatively demanded commercially and politi cally. John Quincy Adams, Secre tary of State in 1823, said: It seems scarcely possible to resist the convic tion that the annexation of Cuba to our Federal Republic will be inde spensible to the continuance and in tegrity of the Union itself.' "I would accept Canada as eoon as she was ready to come to us, and I would not oner her inducements to stay away, as this last Democratic Congress did. They made her a pres ent of a million dollars annually as a bonus to remain under the protection of Great Britain to nag, insult and abuse us. Even if England forced us into another declaration of war, I would promptly seize Canada and make her forever a part of this Re public." of a I-'amoita Firm. Glasgow, April 8. Wrilliam Hen- j derson, the last survivor of the founders of the Anchor line of steam ships, and of the firm of Henderson Brothers, the famous boat builders, is dead. . m.m 1 ' CONTINUAL ADVERTISING IS THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SUCCESS. INSTRUCTIONS WERE SENT, Thurston Affair Was Not a Com mon Fake. STATIC DKI'AKTMKNT I slI.KNT. Will KotJState .lust What the Demands Were Sent In Ample Tim to Catch the China I'osslhl That Instruc tions Were Stopped l Telegraph Washington, April 11. The officials of the State Department were silent today when questioned relative to the latest Hawaiian news brought by the Alameda, and refused to make any response when questioned as to the came of the delay in the report by United States Minister Willis of his in structions touching Minister Thur ston. It can be stated positively that instructions were sent to Mr. Willis on March 5th last, in ample time to have caught the China, unless by some accident they miscarried on the way from Washington to San Francisco. Whether they went so far as a peremptory demand for Mr. Thurston's recall, or were con fined to a direction to Mr. Willis to intimate that Mr. Thurston had been indiscreet in his public utter ances and had thus endangered the cordial relations of the two coun tries, cannot be learned. It is also suggested that the in structions, though actually leaving W ashington, never reached Hawaii, but were stopped by telegraphic orders at San Francisco or some intermediate point. t SAMOA'S OIIII .11 sTicr. A Krcezy Description of lllm by Con- sul-Meneral Mulligan. Washington, April 9. In the Samoan correspondence, jUHt made public by the Mute Department, there is a series of letters from James H. Mulligan, United States Cousul-Geu- eral to Samoa, which are interesting from their free-and-easy style of com munication concerning diplomatic affairs. Speaking of Chief-Justice Henry Ide, who presides over the court established for Samoa by the three powers Great Britain, Ger many and the United States he says: "This so-called Chief Justice is a very pleasant and agreeable gentle man. Nature has not been lavish with him in her gifts, and he is not up to the gauge of Daniel Webster. He is violently impressed with his own importance and authority, and the most melancholy feature about him is that he labors under the impression that be is very smart. He is puffed up, consequential, and devoted to the interests of Ide. He could wipe out eight tenths of the pending litigation and prospective appeals by a prompt decision of the only real queNtion of moment that he has or ever had bofore him, which Is under the eighth section of article three. He persistently postpones deciding it, and all In interest in such matters, suob as lawyers and all other except the commissioner, are along with lum in it, for a decision would almost cer tainly mean great falling off of con tests and litigation. "My notion is, unless he has a per. sonal scheme or ambition behind it, that be knows his importance would be lessened, like a collapsed balloon, if he decided it in the only reasonable way it is susceptible of decision. If the land litigation were once cleared away, the powers and publlr would wake up to the absurdity of labeling an ordinary justice of the peace with the title of chief Justice, whose duties would be confined to the trial of an occasional native for hook ing breadfruit. "I shall lay before the department in the proper time and way the fact that this Vermont attorney has actu ally recommenned and secured the enactment of a law depriving the king, who is, I think, at least hi. equal in ability, of the pardoning ower, save by his consent. protest I have no rupture with Mr. de, who has been all courtesy to me; but the grasping, petty ambition is so acute, the humbug is so apparent, that I feel it my duty to convey to your eyes alone, for your correct un derstanding, the impressions of a mere stranger, free from all friction or en tanglement." The Myrtle Boat Club met last night at the residence of Judge A. G. M. Robertson. Several new members were elected. It was de cided to communicate with tho Leilani and Healani boat clubs concerning the feasibility of form ing a rowing association.
