Friday night at about 11 oclock a
pistol shot was heard in the neighbor

I I were In that vicinity claim that it
was meant for them individually Ru
mor is rife to the effect that a centain

gentleman and that would not be the
last of it And there are others who
ii are positive that it was not the first

HAWAIIAN CABLE
COLONEL SPALXDINGS FRIENDS
ARE NOT AT ALL PLEASED
They Take I for Granted That the
Present Congress Is Not Disposed
to Aid the Company Which Spaul
ding Has Formed
HONOLULU April 12 via San Fran
cisco April 19 per steamer Gaelic
Colonel Spauldings friends here are
not pleased with the report of the
senate committee on foreign relations
relatons
on the cable bill They take i for
granted that the present congress is
not disposed to aid the company of
which Spaulding is the head The Ha
waiian government allowed Spaulding
eighteen months in which to launch
his scheme The option will not expire
for nearly one year and in the mean
time the hands of this government are
practically tied No proposition can be
entertained from any other company
I congress should refuse to grant a
subsidy to the New Jersey company
this government is assured that
Spaulding will assign his contract and
option to any company that might be
able to secure the desired aid Cable
supporters here would be glad to have
the New York and New Jersey com
panies combine if such a combination
would insure the building of the cable
I has been stated that congress will
not act on the cable question unless
the Hawaiian government opens the
field to any American company having
the approval of the United States con
gress In regard to the foregoing a
cabinet minister stated this morning
that much as they would like to see
the cable built no offers from any
other company would be considered
until it was known definitely whether
or not congress would aid Spaulding
If the aid was refused then they
would consider the latters option as
ended and other companies would be
dealt with
A dispatch was received from Min
ister Cooper April 10 via the Ala
meda from R W Irwin at Toklo
Japan to the effect that a Chinese pas
senger from Hong Kong by the Gaelic
had left the steamer secretly at Yoko
hama March 30 and died of the black
plague In the Chinese hospital there
on Apri 1 The affair was not dis
covered until April 2
The same day the vessel arrived at
this port the port physician visited
the ship and reported that she had
900 steerage passengers and 700 tons
of freight for this port She left Yoko
hama on March 31 and on April 7 a
case of smallpox was discovered The
doctor of the Gaelic reported that there
was sickness between Hong Kong and
Yokohama but that upon examination
of the steerage passengers the day
after leaving Yokohama one Chinese
was found missing He got away in
some secret manner This was the
man who died of the black plague in
the hospital at Yokohama
The board allowed the Gaelic to
come in alongside the Pacific Mail
wharf but under the strictest quaran
tine The passengers twill be landed
at Quarantine island

Other Political Pointers
CHICAGO April 19Among the ar
rivals at the Auditorium annex is W
H Griffith late chairman of the Re
publican state central committee of
Colorado He is now the manager of
two daily papers published at Lead
vie Col and is en route home from
a trip to Washington The following
interview was had with him regarding
the political situation in Colorado
How do you think Colorado will vote
this fall
For silver No candidate for presi
dent on a gold platform can carry the
state The party that declares for free
coinage be i the Republican Demo
cratic or Silver party will carry the
state by a large majority
Do you think Senators Teller and
Wolcott will be delegates to the Re
publican national convention
So far as Senator Teller is con
cerned I can state positively that he
will not be a delegate This however
is of his own choice because if he
wished to go he would have the united
and unanimous support of thU party
I make this staement about him not
being a delegate from a personal in
terview with Senator Teller As to
Senator Wolcott I can state nothing
from personal knowledge but I am I
informed by reliable authority that he
desires to be a delegate provided his
duties on the Pacific railroad committee
dutes
tee will permit of his absence from
Washington for that length of time
Do you think Senator Teller will
support the nominee of the Republican
party for president
Absolutely no i that candidate is
running upon j sold standard plat
form Will not a successor to Senator Tel
Vi
ler be chosen by the legislature this
fallYes
Yes sir
As the candidate of what party will
he seek reelection if he does not sup
port the Republican ticket
If he desires reelection he will be
the candidate of the people of the state
and there will be no question of his
election The people of Colorado respect
elfcton
spect and honor him both for his no
bleness of character and steadfastness
to the interests of the state and there
is no honor within their power they
would not gladly bestow upon him

complete confidence that now their opera

the military authorities announce their
intention to force Maceo to fight or to

consider Impregnable and they believe
that they will thus entrap Maceo

That Someone I Lying The Dread
Abroad Among the White Inhab

One of the Chief Dangers to Be
Feared
LONDON April 19Th officers of
the chartered South African company
here are persistently representing that
the situation in Buluwayo is not as se
rious as represented in nonofficial dis
patches and that the town is not in
any real danger
The chartered company today an
nounced that the officials in Buluwayo
are confident that they can hold the
town and that the town of Salisbury
is also safe and i organizing in de
fensive forces The tone of nonofficial
dispatches from South Africa reflects
A CONTRARY TONE
and continues to represent the situa
tion at Buluwayo as alarming and the
condition of affairs throughout Mata
beleland as growing more and more
threatening Elaborate precautions for
defense indicating a momentary fear
of overwhelming attack are reported
from Buluwayo and grave apprehen
sions exist there that communications
with the settlements to the south will
be cut off The supply o provisions
is diminishing in Buluwayo in a con
stantly increasing ratio owing to the
large number of refugees and what is
mudh more serious doubtful natives
that are coming in
THE DREAD IS ABROAD
among the white inhabitants that
these natives are hostile Matabeles
coming in under the disguise of friend
liness but meditating a treacherous
outbreak iicQop raton with an attack
from without
The diminishing supplies make the
keeping open of communication to the
south doubly important as it is from
there that supplies for Buluwayo must
be looked for Fears are entertained
for the safety of the supplies now on
the way and even should these get
through t Buluwayo they are only
sufficient to temporarily relieve the
necessity of keeping these roads open
to the passage of friends of the people
of Buluwayo I
The Latest I
BULUWAYO April 19SundaySo
far as the situation is improved here
over that of yesterday it is due to the
I
departure of the enemy which has been
massed at the north of the town for
several days and from which an attack
has been almost hourly expected
I
This movement however brings lit
tle comfort to those in Buluwayo The
excited manner in which the natives
quitted their positions indicated a con
fident
fidentPURPOSE
PURPOSE OF MISCHIEF
There is no evidence that they were
alarmed Friday at the demonstration of
the patrol of 42 men from Buluwayo
against their vanguard Although this
vanguard was driven back upon the
main body the patrol did not dare to
place itself within reach of the over
whelming members of the main body
The direction taken by this great
body of hostile natives after quitting
the position to the north has not been
learned but I is feared the purpose of
the movement Is to try and effect a
junction with the rebels in the Matoppo
hills and thus sever coinection to the
southward The road runs through the
Matoppo hills to the south of Buluwayo
and is a
DIFFICULT AND DANGEROUS ONE
for fifty miles from here at which
distance the road reached the Mangwe
pass This angular and precipitous de
file it is felt must be held It is of
such a character that It can be made
impregnableagainst the attacks of na
tive warriors But for the same reason
if allowed to get into the hands of the
natives it would be extremely difficult
and perhaps impossible to dislodge
them with any force at present avail
able To leave this pass to the enemy
would effectually cut off the intercourse
of Buluwayo with the outside world
To hold the pass and to patrol the road
between it and Buluwayo measures
which are felt to be imperatively nec
essary for the safety of this place re
quires a large proportion of the avail
able force less than a thousand men
in Buluwayo The threatened move
ment of the enemy upon the line of
communication perplex the authorities
with the problem of how far they can
further denude Buluwayo of its fight
ing force t guard the road The lack
of certainty as to the whereabouts and
immediate destination of the great
mass of natives moving so near the
town causes much dread and anxiety
The Daily News says that military
authorities consider that the appoint
ment of General Carrington British
commander at Gibraltar who has been
ordered to the Cape of Good Hope to
take command of the British forces in
Matabeland is a measure of precau
tion and that I will probably be fol
lowed by the dispatch of more troops
The war office is busy making ar
rangements the Daily News con
tinues and placing stores in readi
ness for being transported
Telegrams have been sent sum
moning every officer on furlough in
Great Britain from the cape to return
to duty without delay
The militant section of the Tories
are in active revolt against the policy
in Africa of Colonial Secretary Cham
berlain and Governor Sir Hercules
Robinson of Cape Colony and they
talk of adjourning the house on the
subject
The Chronicle Liberal commenting
upon the situation in South Africa
does not assume that it is Mr Cham
berlains policy but i says If the
government deliberately intends the
subjugation of the Dutch race Inl
1 iK
South Africa in revenge for the defeat
of Dr revege is time that
Englishmen were up and doing
The Chronicle suggests the forma
ing tion men of a watching committee of lead
Dynamite Mines
CAPE TOWN April 19Advices re
ceived here from Bulurwayo are that
the numbers of the Matabeles around
Buluwayo threatening that place con
tinue to Increase so they now on a
formidable force As a measure of de
fense against the expected attack upon
the town dynamite mines have been
laid in the outskirts of town and in
the ground over which an attacking
party would necssarily approach These
mines have been wired and connected
with instruments in the central laager
which will be the point of retreat in
case of an attack From the central
laager the ground in which the mines
have been laid is in full view and the
mines can be exploded by electricity
at the moment require An explosion
at the moment an advancing horde of
natives ran over the mines would do a
tremendous execution among ithem
Native Discontent
LONDON April 20A dispatch from
Mafeking Cape Colony to the Times
says There is t native discontent
throughout Beyhuanaland and the ad
joining districts More police and military
tary are needed Earl Gray has ar
ranged for a daily coach service from
here to Buluwayo
The Daily Telegraph has a dispatch
dated Buluwayo Friday via Pretoria
whidh sa s
he enemy are maneuvering and con
structing laagers to provide for retreat
and organized attack less than six
miles out
A council of war has been held and
i has been decided that the local forces
are too weak to make further attacks
upon the Matabeles Tiie greatest anx
iety is felt for the arrival of reinforce
ments from the south wTTfch will be
the only link with the outsideworld as
the natives now hold all the country
except Buluwayo Gwelo and Bellngwe
The returns of casualties to the white
population thus far show that six have
