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.
"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.
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."

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
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 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

lAI'AN WANTS TOO MI CH JL ANO
Creatliritain ami Italy Indifferent Man

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
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
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

as more than satisfied with

McAvoy also contradicts the asser
