THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, MAY 4, 1S95.
2 OBJECT 10 TERMS Of PEACE, BEAR This in Mind. which is inevitable iu tbe absence of an agreement to arbitrate the difficul ty, occurs on the Venezuelan bound ary. The attempt of tbe G u ay ano colon ists to run a railway through Venezu elan territory may precipitate this clash. AVhen the proper moment arrives the declaration of our Govern ment, it is said, will be communicated in no uncertain terms, and the mod eration the United States has shown in the icaraguan affair, in which the honor of Great Britain is regarded as involved, it is believed, will cause our course as to Venezuela to be respected. m "VI a y Both Come Over. London, April 24. The Yachting World learns from good authority, it says, that if the Valkyrie and the Ailsa prove fairly equal in their con tests on this side they may both be taken across the Atlantic to decide in American waters which will be the more likely contestant for the cup. A conspicuous Clyde yachtsman, whose name is withheld, told a Yachting World reporter that neither the Valkyrie III nor the Ansa would bring back the America's cup. The British designers," he said, "do not go far enough. Americans, if given a chance, always did and always will outbuild us. The defender will be a terror, no matter how fast our boat may be," the American's canvas wlil take her ahead in the races." Wish to Become Citizens. New York, April 23. Ballington Booth, commander of the Salvation Army, accompanied by his wife, ap plied for citizen's papers today in Jer sey City. His wife said she was also desirous of foreswearing allegiance to Queen Victoria. Both handed the clerk their first papers, taken out in New York in 1870 and 1889. Accord ing to law the applications were laid over for fourteen days. Nlcaraguan Canal Commission Washington, April 25. The Nic araguan Canal Commission held its first formal meeting here today, the members having taken the oath of office and been assigned the tempo rary use of a room in the State Depart ment. The Commission called upon the President this afternoon to pay their respects. Keina iicgente Found. Gibraltar, April 25. The Spanish frigate Lala de Luzon has discovered the wreck of the missing cruiser Reina Kegente, which was lost while bound from Tangier to Cadiz in March last. The wreck lies midway between Tar ifa and Trafalgar in water 109 fathoms deep. Movements of Warships. Washington (D. C), April 25 The Mohican has arrived at Olympia, Wash., and the Raleigh, late of Ad miral Meade's squadron, at Kingston. It is possible that she will be sent back to Colon. The Castine has sailed from Zanzibar to Mozambique and the Marblehead from Messina for Smyrna. Chinese Shipped In Coffins. Montreal (.Canada,, April 23. United States customs officers have unearthed a gang of smugglers who shipped Chinese across the border to Vanceboro, Me., in perforated coffins from St. Johns, N. B. VICTORY FOR C A. SPRECKELS. Oceanic Steamship Company Will Have to Call a Meeting. The Oceanic Steamship Company will have to call a meeting of the stockholders to elect a new board of officers. This was practically decid ed by Judge Seawell at San Francis co on April 25, when he overruled the demurrer to the affidavit of C. A. Spreckels asking the court to order the directors to call the annual meet ing of the stockholders. In giving an oral opinion Judge SeaweJl said: "It has been urged that it is not a duty of the directors to order an election, and that they have no power to do so. The code provides for an election, and al though it does not, in terms, state that it is the duty of the president of a corporation to call a meeting, I am of the opinion that such is its intent. I think that under the by laws of the company the election should be held annually, and unless the directors have the power it is not easy to see wherein it is vested. Assuming the affidavit of C. A. Spreckels to be true, and of course it is legally true, as it is sworn to and we have no evidence to contradict it, the time has passed when the annual meeting of stock holders should have been called, and in this contingency the demand of C A. Spreckels is reasonable. 1 think the directors have refused wilfully -not merely in a dilatory way to call a meeting of the stockholders for the purpose of keeping themselves in office and to prevent the plaintiff from having representation on the board." GENIAL GEORGE BECKLEY. Will Celebrate His 46th Birthday in Grand Style Sunday. George Beckley, the popular pur ser of the Kinau, will celebrate the 46th anniversary of his birth at Hilo on Sunday the 26tb, inst. Pigs, chickens, ducks, fruits, vegetables and liquid refreshment galore was taken on the Kinau yesterday for what will undoubtedly be the biggest celebration of its kind ever given in the Islands. The people of Hilo are all in a .flutter of anxious anticipation over the event. Some fifty invited guests will be present. Purser Beckley has been connected with the Wilder's Steamship Company almost from its inception. He began service in a minor capacity and by assiduous care and attention to business suc ceeded in reaching his present envi able position. Besides acting in the capacity of purser, Mr. Beckley is a large stockholder in the steamship company and a member of the board of directors. Russia, Germany and France Inter fere for China. lAI'AN WANTS TOO MI CH JL ANO Creatliritain ami Italy Indifferent Man churia Highly Prized by Chinese. Japanese Likely to Turn to the I'nited State for Counsel Etc. London, April 26. Direct and pos itve information from official sources is at hand concerning the exact nego tiations between Russia, France and Germany on one hand and Japan on the other. The French, Russian and German Ministers separately inter viewed the Japanese Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs, under instructions from their respective Governments, and presented memoranda in which it was stated that the Governments of Russia, France and Germany, upon examining the terms of peace imposed by Japan upon China, have found that the possession of the peninsula of Liao Tong, claimed by Japan, would be a constant menance to the capital of China, and at the same time would threaten the independence of Korea and render it non-effectual in fact. In this sense and for other reasons it would be, it was stated, a constant men ance to the permanent peace of the far East. Consequently the Governments of France, Russia and Germany, de siring to show their sincere friendship for the Government of Japan, advise it to renounce the absolute and final possession of the peninsula of Liar Tong. The memoranda of the three Governments make it plain that they were presented in the way of friendly advice to the Japanese Government and are not intended in any way to convey any open or covert menance. The impression is gaining ground that Japan can rely upon the friendly counsel of the United States at the present moment. The Governments of Great Britain and Italy have made it plain that they do not intend to follow the example of Russia, France and Germany, and the great commer cial interests of the United States in the far East, which the Japanese Chinese treaty of peace would largely benefit, no less than the constant atti tude of the United States toward Japan, lead diplomats to believe the United States at this juncture will not fail to make use of its good offices in such a manner as will prevent Japan from being deprived of the fruits of her victory. The treaty of peaqe has already been ratified by the Emperor of Japan, and it would be extremely difficult to make any change. The only effect of Russia's, France's and Germany's at titude must be to encourage the party in China which is opposed to any moderate or reasonable settlement, and thus to prolong the war indefi nitely. CHINESE NOT SATISFIED. Shanghai, April 26. A dispatch from Peking says affairs are in a criti cal condition. Some favor the contin uance of war. The censors object to a treaty of peace, and the officers are claiming that the Emperor alone should decide upon the terms. The ratification of the treaty, consequent ly, is uncertain, and if it is ratified it is feared there may be trouble with the army. JAPAN'S SELF CONTROL. TESTED. Yokohama, April 26. The demand made by Russia, France and Germany that Japan refrain from annexing the Liao Tung peninsula is expected to try the self-restraint of the Japanese nation very severely. The Govern ment will find it difficult, if not im possible, to comply without great risk of international trouble. The present situation is viewed with much appre hension. At the same time, it is be lieved that the Government will be compelled to do its utmest to meet the European views. McAvoy Is Not Mad. Detective McAvoy, whose ser vice the Government dispensed with on the first of the month, de Dies the statement in an afternoon publication that he is indignant over his dismissal. On the con trary, he expresses himself as more than satisfied with having been retained so long in the Government service. McAvoy also contradicts the asser tion that he has talked too much. Police Conrt Record. Hoshina and Aral were fined $100 and costs each for libel against Mari. Thow Choy plead guilty to hav ing opium unlawfully in his posses sion and was fined $50 and costs.
