HONOLULU, HAWAIIAN GLADSTONE GOf Greatest Englishman of Passes Away. Age PEACEFUL ENDING OF LIFE Grandeur of Grand Old Man Accen tuated at the Last Knew His Hour Was at Hand. NEW YORK, May IS. A London cable to the Sun says: The passing of Gladstone jS accomplished. It was peaceful at the last peaceful and ma- jectic. Death won no victory over the greatest Englishman of his time. The arch enemy was to him a friend and refuge, whose coming he had longed for, and whose presence brought only hflnite solace. His pathetic craving for Peace, wmcn nas wrung the hearts ot his friends and the nation during the L v nnlm nflll . v flt t. nf ho a , . , x , messenger of release which robbed his aeatnuea or an saciness. I IT 1 5 il - .1 1 1 i i xie grauueur oi me grauu oiu mau, I say those who saw him during his last Welcomed the final summons. It is a simple story, this record of the closing hours of a life which, more than any other in the century, perhaps, has in fluenced the lives of his fellow coun trymen during two generations. The pain, which, though intermittent, was most cruelly severe for nearly nine months, had gradually subsided for This was three or four weeks past due, not so much to the use of mor phine, which was employed more or less since January, as to the fact that the nerves themselves mercifully ex hausted their capacity for suffering. Gladstone's amazing vitality for one of such advanced age served both to prolong ana miensny me agony wmcn uiaicluu,emtuaujdMVd)Slumas' 1UC disease was not only malignant, but in volved tuberculosis of the bone, which is one of the most painful of afflictions. There is no need to dwell upon his for titude and. the agony during the dread ful ordeal. The pitiful story is only too well known, and none wondered at his pathetic yearning for death. His physicians felt justified in gradually increasing the use of opiates and other pilliatives until within a fortnight, when the destruction and numbering of the nerves by the progress of the dis- ease made it no made it no longer necessary. Drugs were used sparingly during the past ten days, the result being that Gladstone was conscious and clear in mind, except for brief spells of deli rium, due chiefly to weakness. The failure of his strength was so sraiuai that the doctors thought, even Monday, that the surrerer mignt oe snared until the rinse nf the mnnth. and enennrasred the familv tn believe v. k ,, . A. . change came during the night. His rest became fitful, and his remaining viuiuiy rapiuiy ueciinea, ana at aay break Tuesday it was evident that his last hours were at hand. The members of the famliy were summoned, and nearly all of them spent the day by the bedside of the sufferer. Gladstone well knew his hour had come and p.lanly the thought brought him sweet content. He was conscious most of the time, but almost beyond the power of speech or motion. The great mind was still active, still ver satile. He surprised his watchers at midday by murmuring a prayer in the French language, with which he was perfectly familiar but seldom used in tne ordinary anairs oi me. 211s vital forces continued to diminish and .dur ing the afternoon his pulse became al most imperceptible. His breathing was but of the faintest and his extrem ities became cold from the feeble ac tion of the heart. There was a slight rally about sun down and the night was passed in a natural sleep. During Wednesday there was a slow flickering of the vital flame and there were occasional intervals of semi-consciousness until the end came at 5 o'clock this morning. Though a national funeral will prob- it (t ably be accepted by the family, there is little doubt that the remains of Mr. .;) Gladstone will be laid to rest in the 0 peaceful graveyard at Hawarden, ad (f joining the church where he was mar ried more than a half century ago.

Puulic daily inquired and has regu larly received every bulletin. The press of Belgium, France, Italy and Greece, in a spontaneous outburst, re cai lea how many oppressed people during Mr. Gladstone's life have of fered hymns of praise for his interven tion in their behalf; while in Madrid, even, the prospect of his death has caused a twentv-four-hour susnension of war animosity against England. TENDER WAS MADE Is Ms as Base Offered to the United States. MR. HATCH TO MR. M'KIHLEY Minister Cooper Makes Statement. Good Impression Made House Still Stabbing at Salaries. SENATE. Eighty-sixth Day, May 26. The Senate bill regulating the open ing of streets on private lands in Ho- nolulu came up on third readine and passed. The Senate bill ratifying the sale of two lots of land in North Kona under the Homestead Act of 1SS4 passed third reading. The bill levying a duty of 25 cents a pound on chicory, raw or otherwise, and upon carom el cereal or other sub stitutes of coffee, the product of any foreign country and imported into the Republic was reported back from the Printing Committee, read by title and referred to the Committee on Com merce. Owing to the absence of Senator Brown the opium bill was deferred to Monday. At 10:20 o'clock the Senate adjourn ed. Just after adjournment and while all the members were present Minister Cooper entered and announced that advices had been received from Min ister Hatch noting that he had trans mitted to President McKinley the of fer made by this Government to the United States, prior to the victory of Admiral Dewey, of the use of the Isl- ands as a base of supplies, if neces sary by the formation of an alliance between the two countries. No an swer had been received from the Unit ed States Government. The offer has 1S9S. GLADSTONE. made a very favorable impression in the United States. HOUSE. Eighty-sixth Day, May 2G. Minister Cooper announced signed by President Dole .House bill 50, "An Act Icreating Ian . Auditor-Generai'isj De partment and to further regulate the receipt, custody and disbursement of public moneys, and provide for the supervision of public accountants and audit of public accounts, etc." Rep. Isenberg introduced the follow ing resolution which was referred to a special committee: "Be it resolved that an item of $1500 be inserted in the appropriation bill, current accounts for the 'promotion of tourist travel.' " This is in furtherance of E. C. Mac farlane's advertising plan. The appropriation bill was again taken up. The salary of the Deputy Collector-General was reduced from $225 to $175. The Collector-General's salary passed at $6000. Rep. McCandless wanted the item of $S000 for custom guards, all ports, striken out. The Customs Bureau had already asked for half the earth, where was the use of giving them the whole of it. This proved a most unpopular motion with the House. Reps. Mc Candless and Kahaulelio were the only ones who voted it. Rep. Gear introduced the subject of a steam launch for the Customs Bureau. An engineer must be had to run the launch. He would recommend the in sertion of a new item of $3000 for an engineer, l he consideration or tnis was deferred until the launch item should be brought up. Rep. Gear moved for the insertion in the appropriation bill of an item of $4800 for a food inspector. It was necessary to nave a goou man ana therefore he should have a good sal ary. Rep. McCandless moved the item be made $2700 for 18 months. Carried. At 12 noon the House took a recess until 1:30 p. m. In the afternoon the Vice-Speaker waited until nearly 2 o'clock. The members who were present became uneasv as it did not look as if a quo j rum woukl arrjVe. The Vive-Speaker announced that the tardy members should be taught a lesson and declared the House adjourned. Mr. Haywood Annoyed. Consul-General Haywood has a grievance against one of the evening papers. Mr. Haywood gave out some news concerning transports for Ma nila. The information came in a let ter from Mrs. Haywood. The paper which has annoyed the consul general used or mentioned the letter from Mrs. Haywood to color or strengthen a dis patch speculating ' on the probability or likelihood of United States troops being landed here to occupy Hawaii. The complaint of the consul general is quite natural, as the peculiar use to which the letter was put places the representative in a most embarrassing position. PRICE FIVE CENTS. A WAITING GAME Spain Eilremely Cautions With Her FiE&tiEg Ships. PLAHS, BUT NO ACTIOH Oregon Safe Invasion of Cuba In the Philippines-Porto Rico. Cable Cutting. THE TWO FLEETS. WASHINGTON, May IS. All news regarding the location of Admiral Sampson's fleet is kept under lock and key at the Navy Department. But while this silence is preserved, it is re ported that cipher messages have been received today which convey the in formation that while part of Sampson's squadron is still guarding the Wind ward passage between Cuba and Hayti, it has put out scouts along the north ern coast of Cuba. The fleet was seen off Cape Maysl, the extreme eastern point of Cuba, two days ago. At the same time the flying squadron has arrived at Key West and no doubt is reaching out to form a coalition with Sampson. Therefore the impressive spectacle is presented of thirty or more great American war ships within striking distance of Cuba or on guard in Wrest India waters , against any possible northern rush on the part of Cervera's fleet. If the news from Kingston tele graphed to the Navy Department to night is accurate, that the enemy's fleet has been sighted off Jamaica, northward bound, stirring times are due at any moment. It is not unlikely that there will be a concerted move ment, that the fleets will divide and encircle Cuba, and troops will be rush ed under their protection to the island. PORT AU PRINCE (Hayti), May 18. Nothing is known here of the report from Plata, San Domingo, to the effect that the Spanish Cape Verde fleet, com manded by Admiral Cervera, has ar rived at Porto Rico. The latest news which reached Port Au Prince con cerning the Spanish war ships simply confirmed the report that they left Cu racoa, Dutch West Indies, on Sunday afternoon last for an unknown desti nation, after having taken on board coal and provisions. NEW YORK, May 18. A cable to the Sun from Biarritz, France, says: The Spanish Navy Department estimates that the Spanish fleet will arrive at Havana on May 22d, or Tampa on May 25th, or New Orleans on May 26th. If the fleet goes in the direction of Bahia to look for the Oregon, Marietta and Buffalo, the department expects to hear from the vessels on May 30th. Reports emanate from Spanish Gov ernment offices that Spain's approaches to Gomez and Garcia to induce them to rally to the support of the Spanish cause are on the eve of success. 4 PORTO RICO BOMBARDMENT.
