Mnrh Conjecture nn to the Exact
I. ay of Land American Minister
Thought to le Following Previous
Tactics Talk About AVashinuton.
New York, April 21. The Tri
bune's Washington correspondent
comments on the disappearance of the
letter asking for Minister Thurston's
recall, as Minister from Hawaii to
this country, as follows:
"It is likely that the document is
now in Honolulu. But who has it?
Suspicion strongly points to Minister
Willis, although it is possible it may
be reposing in the Foreign Office, the
intelligence as to the fact being with
held for good reasons. Minister Willis
lias on previous occasions kept back
important information which he was
directed to deliver to persons in Hono
lulu. It will be remembered he did
not promptly obey the instructions to
notify the ex-queen that the Presi
dent thought her a much-wronged
person and desired again to see her
seated on the Hawaiian throne.
"Mr. Willis thought it good diplo
macy to proceed slowly in that in
stance, and did not seek an audience
with her dusky majesty for several
days after securing orders to execute
the wishes of the President, and take
the first formal step in the programme
of monarchical restoration.
" In other words, he exercised sound
discretion in the matter. Is it not
probable that he deems it advisable
again to pursue a discreet rather than
an abrupt course, and that the letter
of recall may be up his sleeve, as sug
gested. "Even diplomats acting under au
thority of President Cleveland and
Secretary Greeham sometimes, by
chance, show tact. Mr. Willis may
have some special object in view in
withholding the letter. He may want
certain information or favors, or he
may not see a prospect of having the
attention of the Hawaiian authorities
directed to such a matter as the re
calling of a Minister. The idea of
being "out of a job" is no more agree
able to Mr. Willis than it is to any
other unfortunate in his party. He
may be exercising discretion, there
fore, lor botn nis country's advantage
and his own
good.

Has Mr. Willis held back the commu
nication and written to Mr. Gresham
strongly advising that the demand for
the recall of Mr. Thurston be not in
sisted upon ? There are many persons
in Washington who believe that such
is the case."
JOKl IS ON
GRESHAM
! h ii rot on Forestalled tlie
A i lion
of
State Department.
Washington, April 15 The belief
is growing that in the little rupture
with Secretary Gresham, Minister
Thurston will come out first best. The
incident is causing a deal of talk here.
It ia a popular theme in the diplo
matic corps, and the attaches of the
foreign office, as the clerks of the
State Department are wont to call
themselves, are discussing it in whis
pers. In fact, pretty much everybody is
talking about it more or less except
Secretary Gresbam. He never touches
the subject himself. Those around
him arB afraid to speak of it; and
others have too kindly a feeling for
the Judge to mention it.
It is understood that Mr. Thurston
learned in some way that the request
for his recall had not been sent on the
date indicated in the first publication,
and that therefore it could not leave
the country until the departure of the
next steamer.
On consulting his time-tables he
discovered that he could reach San
Franeisco in time for the same steam
er. This he did, and therefore arrived
in Honolulu as quickly as Secretary
Ores ham's request for bis recall.
It is a simple thing to understand
that by placing bis resignation in the
hands of the Hawaiian Government
at once he could forestall the receipt
of the request for his recall. By doing
this he would play a pretty little
trick on the Secretary of State.
Officially the State Department au
thorities profess indifference to Thurs
ton's fine work.
One of the Secretaries was asked to
day what would be the probable pro
cedure in the event of Thurston's hav
ing forestalled the request. He said:
"If Thurston's resignation was placed
in the hands of the Hawaiian Govern
ment before our request, we will
doubtless receive through the Hawaii
an charge d'u Tairs in this city a noti
fication that Thurston has resigned
and that somebody else will doubt
less be appointed. It is probable that
we will receive this some time before
the acknowledgment of the request
for Thurston's recall.
1 'Upon the receipt of that notifica
tion we will acknowledge it and say
something to the effect that if the
Hawaiian Government is willing to
accept Thurston's resignation, all
right; that it matters little to us
whether Thurston resigns or is recall
ed. He will have ceased to be Minis
ter to this country, and that is all we
want."
Olyuipla for Honolulu.
Vallejo, Cal., April 22. It id the
opinion of Mare Island officials tbat
the cruistr Philadelphia will soon re
turn from Honolulu, and that the
Olvmpia, after returning from the
south, will be sent to Hawaii to re
lieve her.
The Gaelic Mirror.
One of those hustling Americans
who always makes his presence
felt no matter where he happens to
find himself, conceived the happy
idea of issuing a publication rela
tive to the passage of the Gaelic
while that vessel was temporarily
resting in Honolulu. This took
shape in the form of a one-page,
two wide columns edition
called " The Gaelic Mirror."
It contains besides the pas
senger list numerous local
hits on those journeying to the
Coast by the steamer. The paper,
though small, is cleverly edited
and brim full of interesting matter
to those among whom it will be
circulated. It is dated "At sea,
April 30th, 1895," and will afford a
fund of amusement to the passen
gers by the Gaelic.

Walter Smith at the Front.
The Weekly Box of Curios, M JKi
23d, published in Yokohama, has
the following to say of Walter G.
Smith :
"Walter G. Smith, the S. F.
Chronicle's war correspondent, left
on Thursday evening a week ago
for the front via Hiroshima, but he
could not or would not tell us his
destination. His impression is that
another battle will be fought before
peace is concluded, and when this
occurs, and Li Hung Chang sees
the well-armed and well-drilled
soldiers that the Japanese will not
forget to stick under his nose, he
will realize that China's name is
1 Dennis and will be anxious to
make terms rather than permit
Japan to annex China as a summer
resort."
