A BRAVE AMERICAN LAO, Hawaiian Royalists Resent His D( votion to the Republic. Tedly" GauiMe Forced to Defend II im- aelf With Pistol on Account of II i Loyalty to Free Principle. A late issue of the San Francisco Examiner says that "Teddy" Gam ble, who gained local reputation several years ago as a juvenile op eratic comedian, is attracting con siderable attention in Honolulu by the natriotic stand he took in the i uprising against the Provisional Government. Several weeks ago he was attacked by a band of roy alists and half-breeds and was forced to fire several shots into the crowd. News of the affair reached here in a letter Monday. Gamble went to the islands sev eral months ago to accept a posi tion with the Hawaiian Improve ment Company. Shortly after his arrival he sang at an entertain ment given under the patronage of prominent Government officials. The next evening he was asked to eing at a gathering of royalists, but refused. On numerous occa sions he made himself obnoxious to the followers of the queen by his outbursts of bitter denunciation of rovaltv in all its phases. He personally resented a slur on tho stars and stripes by a wealthy young half-breed. A fiatic en counter followed in which Gamble came off with living colors. As soon as the last uprising oc- cured "Teddy" enlisted as a volun teer guard of the Provisional Gov ernment, and during the exciting times following the outbreak he - was constantly on picket duty. Alter the rout ot tne queen s sympathizers Gamble was given permission to arm himself and authority to act as a conservator of the peace. Early in March he was attacked by a crowd of young royalists at a resort on the out skirts of Honolulu. Two weeks later he was aeain attacked. Not wishing to take any chances with the mob he drew his revolver and fired several shots. Fortunately no one was hurt. The next, day he was arrested on charges of assault. He was released on several thous and dollars cash bail. The Hawaiian laws are very strict regarding the use of firearms. If a person is assaulted he or she must run away. Self-defense is a weak plea. Several prominent San Franciscans who were ac quainted with Gamble's father in terceded in the youth's behalf with a Honolulu attorney,who succeeded in having the charges dropped. "Teddy" Gamble, although only twenty-one years of age, has on more than one occasion asserted his American spirit. During a Fourth of July celebration at Vic toria, B. C, he got into trouble by the over-zealous manner in which he proclaimed his allegiance to Old Glory. He created quite a furor thoughout the East in 18S9 by his remarkable performance of Ko-Ko in the "Mikado" with Eckert's Juvenile Opera Company. STYLES FOR SPRING.

WOKD TO THE WISE, ETC THE MANUFACTURERS' SHOE COMPANY'S Bia SHOE STOKE, 516 Fort Street. I'KESIDENT AND SENATE. One Instance Where Mr. Cleveland Yielded to the Legislators. It has been said very often that President Cleveland never bends his will to anything, and especially to Congresss, nor, to carry the specialy still farther, to the Senate. And yet in one instance he has done so. Mr. William L. Wilson was slated for the Mexican mission. His friends wanted him to have the place. It was a warm climate, suited to his constitution, and the duties were light and such as he could easily perform, ami yet obtain rest after his arduous labors of the past two years. Besides the salary was about double that of a cabinet po sition, and in Mexico $17,500 would be nearly doubled, or that amount spent would be nearly doubled, because an American dollar is worth twice as much as the Mexican dollar, that country being upon a sil ver basis. It is understood that the President would have gladly appoint ed Mr. Wilson to this place, not that he will uot appreciate his abilities in the cabinet, but that the Mexican mission was for many reasons the best place. But the Senate decreed otherwise. It was only a short time after the death of Minister Gray that a petition was circulated and signed by nearly every Senator asking for the appointment of Senator Ransom to the vacancy. The President ac ceded to the wishes of the Senate in this instance, and named the man they had selected rather than his own personal choice. Mr. Wilson was given the next best place at hand, and, from one standpoint, a much more impoatant place. A cabinet of ficer will always stand higher in im portance than in the best diplcmatie position, though many men choose the foreign service as more pleasant and less wearing. Washington Star.
