ictoria, April 2o. Johnston, the
former detective or spy for the Ha

three moths ago, has received assur
ance from the British Government
that a thorough investigation of bis
case will be insisted upon. President
Dole's administration intends fighting

WILL KETAIN HIS RANK.
Majov-Geiieral William H. Dimoml
be lie-appointed.
to
San Francisco, April 22. Gov
ernor Budd has decided to re-appoint
Major-General William ti. Dimond
as commander of the California Na
tional Guard.
The appointment of General Di
mond as commander of California's
state troops will receive the approval
of all the guardsmen of this state, as
there is not a more popular officer in
the militia.
General Dimond has had a long
career in military life, and for the
past fifteen years has been connected
with the National Guard of Califor
nia, being first appointed by Gov
ernor Perkins.
At the outbreak of the civil war
General Dimond was residing in Ha-
wan, and when tne war became an
assured rebellion an independent com-
iiflny ft 1 Pfivs I rv was formod i Hono
lulu with the intention of offering
their services to the United States
government, but as a similarly organ
ized company was declined by Presi
dent Lincoln on account of interna
tional difficulties the project .was
given up, but General Dimond came
to this country during the last year of
the war and offered his services. He
had provided himself with letters
from the king and several ministers to
the island kingdom, and President
Lincoln at once appointed him assist
ant adjutant-general, with the rank of
captain. He was stationed at Beau
fort, South Carolina, where he re
mained until the close of the rebel
lion. The president offered General Di
mond a commission in the regular
army, but this he declined and re
turned to Hawaii, where the king ap
pointed him as commander of the
same company he had helped to form
before leaving the islands. This com
pany wras the special escort of the
king on all state occasions, and was
really a portion of the regular army.
TO ERADICATE LKFB09Y.
Dr. Hale Tendered a Bacteriological
Laboratory Offer Refused.
Chicago, April 10. Dr. Albert B.
Hale, of this city, has received an
offer from the Hawaiian Government
to take charge of a bacteriological
laboratory under the Government aus
pices. In 1884-86 the Board of Health of
Hawaii established an experimental
laboratory and placed Dr. Ahring, of
Hamburg, in charge. A good deal of
scientific work was accomplished, but
the attitude of Dr. Ahring toward the
Government was unsatisfactory, and
he was forced to resign. Officers of
the new Republic have taken up the
work, and it is the idea that most of
the investigations shall be along the
line of discovering means for the
eradication of leprosy. The position
was tendered to Dr Hale upon the
recommendation of Doctors Day and
Wood, formerly of Chicago, but now
of Honolulu. Dr. Hale has never
visited the Hawaiian Islands, and is
in doubt whether or not to give up his
Chicago practice and accept the ap
pointment. Dr. Hale was born at
Jonesville, Mich., and is tbirty-three
years of age. He was graduated from
the University of Michigan in 1882,
and from the Chicago Medical College
a few years later. He has studied in
several of the principal universities in
Europe, where he made study of bac
teriology a specialty.
Later advices state that Dr. Hale
has declined the offer to come to the
Hawaiian Islands on account of do
mestic relations
HAWAIIAN VES9ELS
Circular Issu?d by Commii nnei
of
Navigation Chamberlain
Washington, April 20. Mr.
Chamberlain, Commissioner of Navi
gation, has issued the following circu
lar in regard to the admission of Ha
waiian ves-els:
"This office being satisfied that the
rules concerning the admeasurement
for tonnage of vessels of the UniteI
States have been substantially adopted
by the Government of Hawaii, Ha
waiian vessels arriving in the United
States shall hereafter be deemed to be
of the tonnage denoted in their certi
ficates of registry or other national
tapers, and it shall not be necessary
or such vessels, when furnished with
such certificates, to be readmeasured
in any port of the United States. The
amount of any deductions and omis
sions, however, not authorized by the
admeasurement laws of the United
States must be added to the register
tonnage of such vessels.''
HAWAII INEASY.
Kear the Victorious Japanese May Turn
In Her Direction.
Chicago, April 18. The Tribune's
Washington special says: Private
letters from the Hawaiian Islands are
authority for the statement that the
little republic is in a ferment over the
success of the Japanese in the war
with China, it being thought that the
Mikado's advisers are flushed with
victory, and will, as soon as the treaty
of peace is ratified, turn their atten
tion to the conlition of their country
men in Hawaii. Before the war with
China the Japanese Commissioner in
Hawaii was growing extremely de
monstrative in his demands for com
plete suffrage for the Japanese on the
islands.
Lambert Agin' the Government.
Oakland, April 16. Ex-Police
Court Clerk Lambert had many call
ers at the County Jail today. Several
Councilmen and a number of other
politicians with whom he associated
before he fled to Honolulu visited
him. His bonds today were fixed at
$3000. He will be arraigned Monday.
Hawaii doesn't seem to be any more
hospitable to absconding officials than
to poets, and, like Joaquin Miller,
Lambert denounces President Dole
and his government.
Lambert is familiar with much of
the political intrigue of Oakland, and
threatens to divulge some secrets if
bis "friends" prosecute him.
Later Lambert was arraigned on
the 20th and was given one week in
which to prepare his case.
LADYBIRDS GOOD WORK.
Resident of Hilo Attests to Results
Obtained.
The efficacy of the work of the
ladybirds on different forms of
blight in the country baa been vari
ously remarked unon and occasion
ally a disposition to give the bee-
les a blackeye! has been shown. A
prominent citizen of Hilo, interest
ed in plantation work, writes Com
missioner Marsden as follows :
"It will no doubt prove interesting
to you to learn that Mr. Miller's fears
that the ladybird had found an ene
my which destroyed it are entirely
groundless. During the winter
months no ladybirds could be seen in
Hilo, and your remarks that it was
not their breeding time are, as far as
Hilo is concerned, proved to be fully
sustained.
A week or so ago the "birds" have
made their first appearance on a Chi
nese orange tree on which I first lib
erated a small colony about July of
last year. They are now increasing
rapidly and may be seen in all stages
now on the tree, larva?, pupai and
full-fledged birds, feeding ravenously
on what little blight again' appeared
on the tree.
It would prove interesting to learn
how the insects are faring in other
districts'. It is only through full re
ports that we can obtain a full knowl
edge of the habits of these insects,
which may possibly become different
to what they have been in the south
ern hemisphere."
CHOLERA AMONG JAPANESE.
Private Advices Tell of 600 Cases
in Army at Formosa.
Private advices received at the
Foreign office from Japan, state that
cholera has gained a startling hold
in the Japanese army at Formosa
and the Pescadores. Already 600
cases are reported among the soldiers
stationed in that section. United
States Minister Dnnn has published
a notice calling the attention of
United States citizens and officers of
United States vessels to the edict of
Viscount Mornra Yasushi which
requires strict quarantine surveil
lance over all vessels and people
coming from the infected regions to
the ports of Yokohama, Kobe, Naga
saki and Moji.
These communications will be
placed before the Board of Health
that equally careful watch may bo
kept upon passengers coming from
the districts named.
Itctnru of Marshal Hitchcock.
Marshal Hitchock writes C. D.
Chase that he is improving rapidly
in health, but will not return to
Honolulu until the 20th of May.
The Marshal visited the Olaa cof
fee district recently and was favor
ably impressed with that section
and its possibilities. He intends
making a tour through Puna and
Kona before assuming official
duties.

London, April 19, A Central News
dispatch from Tokio gives additional
details of the treaty of peace, the
principal features of which have al
ready beeu published. The treaty se
cures to Japan entire freedom in the
importation into China of steam en
gines aud machiuery for manufactur
ing purposes and the same privileges
are accorded to China Is the matter of
importing goods into Japan. The
treaty also grants to Japan extra ter
ritorial rights, whereas in matters of
tariff and the dispensation of j untie;
Japan reserves every privilege.
The indemnity is payable In seven
yearly installments at 5 per cent.
Payment of obligation within three
years cancels the interest. In addi
tion to these provisions China engages
not to punish return prisoners, nor to
inflict punishment upon Chinese who
may have furnished supplies to the
Japanese army and navy. China also
binds herself to return Japanese pris
oners unconditionally.
Exchange of ratifications of the
treaty will take place at Chefoo not
later than May 8th.
A dispatch to the Times from IV kin
says it is understood China has re
fused to concede Japan's demands in
regard to the opening of certain ports
to foreign trade. The dispatch add
that Li Hung Chang is still in a state
of high fever from the effects of his
wound.

A F1C AID OF .IAI A.N.
Ihe London Times Finds No Warrant
for English Interference.
London, April 22. In an editorial
this morning the Times, after admit
ting that Japan evidently intends to
cripple and humiliate China iu a
maner seriously affecting European
interests, insists that the diplomatic
history does not bear the pretensions
that any power or powers are inclined
to dictate terms of peace between the
two nations. It adds: "Great Brit
ain's interests are involved quite ax
much as Russia, but we And no stipu
lation in the treaty of peace warrant
ing our interference at the cost of ex
citing the eumity of Japan."

Offli nl Proclamation hy buprr n of
Japan ta Knvoys.
Yokohama, April 22. The follow
ing imperial proclamation was issued
this afternoon :
Through peace national prosperity
is best promoted. Unfortunately the
rupture of relations with China forced
upon us a war which after the lapse of
ten months is not yet ended. During
this period our minister, in concert
with the army, navy and Diet, have
done all in their power to further our
arms in obedience to our instructions.
Our ardent desire, with the assistance
of our subjects In loyalty and sincer
ity, is to restore peace, and thereby at
tain our object the promotion of na
tional prosperity. Now that peace Is
negotiated and an armistice pro
claimed, a (permanent cessation of
hostilities is near at band. The terms
of peace fixed by our ministers of state
give us complete satisfaction. The
peace and glory thus secured render
the present a fitting time to enlighten
you as to the course of our rut im
policy. "We are rejoiced at the recent vic
tories which bave enhanced the glory
ofourempire. At the same time we
are aware that the end of the road
which must be traversed by the em
pire In the march of civilization is
still far distant and remains yet to be
attained. We therefore hope, In com
mon with our loyal subiects, that we
shall always guard against eelf-con-teuteduess,
but in a spirit of modesty
and humility strive to perfect oar
military defense without falling into
extremes. In thortt it Is our wish
that the Government and the people
alike shall work to a common end,
