An Early Uprising .in Hawaii
Predicted In the Late
CHICAGO. 111.. ?ept- 4.— Consul Job of
Hawaii has discovered a plot to overturn
the republic of Hawaii and either restore
Liliuokalani to the throne or set up a new
government. Filibusters are being re
cruited in Chicago for this purpose. A
private detective agency is said to be trac
ing the leaders of the movement, and at
the first attempt on their part to make a
hostile demonstration they will be ar
Since his appointment as Consul for
Hawaii Mr. Job has been sounding public
opinion as to its attitude toward the
struggling republic. In connection with
some colonization schemes which the re
public proposes to set afloat in Chicago
and other American cities at an early date
he discovered that men of some promi
nence here and elsewhere had already in
augurated a plan to organize here a body
of men to go to Hawaii and overthrow the
They were to be recruited m Chicago,
shipped to various points on the Pacific
Coast, gradually gathered into one or two
large vessels, armed and set sail for Hawaii.
The recruiting has gone so far that an
ex-Confederate officer had been offered a
commission in the army to be formed.
Dispatches from San Francisco indicate
that the formation of an army in Chicago
has already been learned there, and Charles
F. "Wilder, Hawaiian Consul, will keep a
close lookout for filibusters who may at
tempt to embark from that point. The
prompt action of Consul Job may squelch
the thing without the attention of this
Government being called to it.
Other advices than those of Consul Job
are to the effect that Hawaii is on the eve
of a revolution. It is predicted that if an
nexation does not occur there may be an
The leader of the party which is being
formed is supposed to be a man of some
means. His name and that of the princi
pal conspirators are withheld by Mr. Job,
who fears their use might defeat justice.
Chicago seems to have been chosen as the
base o* operations, because of all cities it
contains the most promising material for
an expedition of that kind. The men go
ing as recruits were to receive free passage,
arms and allotment of lands after they
had accomplished their purpose.
Consul Job looks at his discovery in a
serious light. When asked about his in
formation this afternoon he said:
'•I did not intend to make this public at
present, for I have not found out all that I
wish to, but the report is correct. I have
unearthed a deliberate plot to organize a
well-armed body of men in this city, offi
cer them with men of intelligence and
means, and embarking from some point on
the Pacific Coast, sail for Hawaii and over
threw the republic. I have promptly ad
vised the Government and am taking
prompt action hereto head off the schemes
and expose the leaders. In a clay or two I
hope to know everything. Who the in
spiring factor of the plot is I do not know.
"A strong effort is being made to place
the whole administration on a sound, busi
ness basis. The republic is out of debt
and there is several hundred thousand
dollars in the treasury. The army is now
three or four times as laree as it was under
the Queen, better disciplined and better
armed. Any filibustering party would
meet with a hot reception.
"It has been Known for some time that
in other American cities efforts have been
made to form filibustering parties against
Hawaii, but I did not suspect such action
was being taken here until I discovered
what I have within the last few days. No
more favorable spot for securing adven
turous men could be found and I have no
doubt if I had not learned of the scheme
it wouid have been successful so far as
securing recruits is concerned."

constant source of amazement of all
comers, who, having become accustomed
to the stereotyped displays of former
years and the sameness that, in the main,
has been their chief characteristic, are

ures which have been introduced by the
exhibitors of 1895. The exhibits on the
main floor are fully completed, and the
interior of the building under the glitter
of the electric lights and decorations is a
perfect dream of beauty.
In a prominent place at the entrance of
the north wing of the Pavilion is the dis
play of fruits and products raised within
the limits of Sacramento County. The
main feature of this exhibit is a model of
the State Capitol, which has been repro
duced with its accompanying display of
luscious fruit preserved in jars of unique
design. So perfect is the fruit that one is
led to believe that it has just been plucked
from its leafy home in the orchards and
vineyards of this favored portion of Golden
Against the snow white dome of the
structure are rows of vari-colored jams
and jellies, which sparkle and gleam like
amber against their white background.
Within the interior of the building there is
a lone range of shelving containing plates
loaded with plump, ripe fruit garnered
from the vast vineyards and orchards of
the Sacramento Valley. Here side by side
are ranged golden oranges, so freshly
plucked that the leaves have not ev^n
wilted, great green apples showing in vivid
contrast with their yellow-hued neighbors,
purple clusters of luscious grapes are side
by side with great flaming bunches of their

young amateur orchardist in the employ
of Mrs. Shields, one of the leading fruit
producers of the Sacramento Valley. The
representation of the seal is perfect, and is
beautifully shaded and outlined by the
different colors of the dried-orchard pro
ducers. Behind the building and stretch
ing into the north win^ are long lines of
tables containing exhibits of all varieties
of fruit from various exhibitors, while
golden pumpkins, immense squash and
other farm products are scattered around
in great profusion.
The corn palace of Mrs. Shields is quite
a unique feature, and consists of a small
four-peaked building, tiled with ears of
yellow corn. The sides are covered with
long green stalks of Indian corn, through
whose waving leaves one catches glimpses
of watermelons, red and green cabbages,
different varieties of potatoes and vari
colored onions. On one corner of the
structure is a bale of hops, on the other a
bale of alfalfa, while trailing green vines
loaded with fragrant hops trail in studied
confusion over the whole edifice.
On all sides of the counties' exhibits are
pyramids of jelly, jams and preserved
An exhibit of great beauty that occupies
a position of prominence on the main
floor is a borax display, whose pure white
crystaline pillars sparkle under the arc
lights, reflecting a thousand colors. It is
labeled from Death Valley mines, and is
attracting great attention.
Instead of a lack of exhibits, Director
Lelong has been obliged to put a force of
mechanics to work to enlarge the scope of
accommodations. Every coop has its ten
ants, and the floor is strewn with crates of
birds awaiting apartments. There are
some mammoth buff Cochins, light and
dark Brahmas, "Wyandottes and Malay
games. The cute little bantam is there
also, and those prodigous layers, the leg

the pavilion and should be seen by every
lover of nature.
The arrivals of stock at the park are
coming in a perfect stream and the dis
play will fully equiil that of former years,
with, perhaps, the single exception of
sheep, which are coming in very slowly.
In fact, this branch has barely 20 repre
sentatives, although all that have arrived
are pronounced by experts to be perfect
specimens highly bred. The swine are
also near the head of the list in their vari
ous strains. In the cattle-sheds the soft
fawn-colored Jerseys, with their almost
human in expression eyes, predominate,
and many of them are ticketed as belong
ing to the choicest imported bloods.
In marked contrast with the soft fawn
color, pleading eyes and gentle demeanor
of the Jerseys is the dec,, red of the Dur

the shaggy hides of the Galloway, both

crowning glory of cowhood, a pair of

THE SACRAMENTO CELEBRATION.
Great Preparations to Properly Observe
SACRAMENTO, Cal., Sept. 4.—Prepara
tions for the celebration of Admission day
are rapidly approaching completion, and
the list of positions that the different par
lors and other associations who take part
in the parade will occupy are about com-
plete. The hour cecided upon for the
parade to start is 11 a. m., and the line of
march will be from Fourth and M streets,
up M to Tenth, to X, to Second, to J, and
up the latter thoroughfare a sufficient dis
tance to allow for counter-marching.
It is fully expected that at least 10,000
participants will be inline, and local mem-
Ders are exerting every effort to do full
justice to the city's well-earned reputation
for bounteous hospitality.
One of the features of the elaborate
decorations that are being assumed in
honor of its expected visitors is an im
mense representation of a grizzly bear,
wfrich will be placed on the front of the
State Capitol building. In the evening a
blaze of electric light from 250 incan
descentswill be thrown on the figure. It

AUTONOMY FOB, THE CUBANS.
Partial Home Rule to Be Granted
Whenever the Strife Is at
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Sept. 4.— Dr'
Jose Congesto, the Spanish Consul for sev
eral States, who is stationed at this port,
issued a formal statement of Spain's atti
tude toward Cuba this afternoon. The
Consul avers that his Government has
been constantly misrepresented in the
opinion of the American people, and em-
phasizes the fact that the mother country
awaits only the return of peace to put into
operation the law recently passed, grant
ing the island partial, if not complete,
autonomy. In the interest of peace, he
says, the winter campaign will be short,
sharp and decisive — a course of action
which it is hoped must summarily end the
drain upon Spain's resources and prevent
the continuance of bloodshed. The state
ment is as follows:
"There is no question that the condition
of affairs in Cuba has long presented
features which required correction. Spain
has recognized the imperative need of re
form quite as keenly as the Cubans them
selves; and, recognizing this need, she
has long ago set herself about satisfying
it. The law granting Cuba partial auton
omy was passed months ago, not only by
the Conservative party, which opposed it,
but also by the Carlists and the Republi
cans. It would be remarked as a curious
coincidence that no sooner did it appear as
passed than the current rebellion broke
"It has been said that the rebellion was
due to the disgust of the Cubans at seeing,
in this measure, their cherished hopes
again frustrated and their aspirations for
home rule juggled with. The truth of the
matter is that Cuba was not disappointed;
it was the men whose interests lie in
fomenting discord who perceived that with
the adoption of the law their occupation
was gone. The rebellion was not due to
dissatisfaction over the Jaw, but, paradoxi
cal as it may seem, was caused by the law
being too acceptable to the genuine, honest
"General Martinez Campos has it in his
personal discretion to put the law into
execution whenever he sees fit, but he will
not do so until there is peace on the island,
because to give the measure's practicability
a fair test it cannot be tried amid the din
of musketry and the flash of machetes.
"It is Spain's intention to end this re
bellion within the next three months. She
can and will put enough men on the
island to crush the insurgents. The thing
must be done sooner or later, and it is
bettering the interests of humanity as well
as the state that it be speedily accom
"I have said and 1 take pride in repeat
ing it, that what is wanted in the island of
Cuba and what the people are fighting for
there to-day is not liberty; and in proof of
this assertion I refer any one who wants to
learn the truth to respectably born Ameri
cans who live on the island. Respectable
Americans live and work there, and they
do not seem to miss tbe liberty they enjoy
in the United States. The only claim that
certain of the local leaders lay stress upon
—that there is no liberty in the islaud of
Cuba— is that Cubans pay a per capita tax
of $15, and that they must carry a paper all
the time to show who they are. Respecta
ble people do not find any fault at this
formality. Spain is not the only country
having this kind of personal document.
They are found in Italy, Germany, Swit
zerland, Belgium and other countries. It
is true that this is a kind of personal tax,
but are there not in this country the poll
tax and other taxes? If, on the island of
Cuba, every one should pay to the treasury
what he ought there is no doubt the taxa
tion would be enormous, but the majority
of the people in one way or another try to
avoid paying the taxes. It is impossible
in the island of Cuba to collect rural taxes.
It has often been tried and has been found
almost impossible to do so.
"The real question is a high one. It is
a question of race. Any change in the
form of government would be based upon
universal suffrage. A government elected
by the majority of the population — and no
one would think of setting up a constitu-
tion upon any other basis — reflects, from
the nature of things, the character of
electors. These blacks depend for the
progress which they may be capable of
making on the presence of a white com
munity among them, and although it
would be undesirable and equally impos
sible for the blacks to be ruled by the
minority of the white residents, it would
be equally undesirable and equally impos
sible for the whites to be ruled by them.
"All the trouble in the island may be
summed up in a very few words. It is the
result of certain practical filibusters in
the United States, who, seeing their source
of income was in danser, tried to make all
the trouble they could, so as to assure
their future income by collecting contri
butions from the poor cigar-makers."

The Cuban party received reports yester
day from A. Agnerra and C. de Cardenas,

CLAIM AGAINST SPAIN

NEW YORK, N. V., Sept. 4.— Another
claim of as much importance as the Mora
indemnity is going to be presented by the
United States Government before the Gov
ernment of Spain in a demand for the
restoration of the property confiscated by
the Spanish during the last war from Mar
tin Castillo Agramonte, an American citi
Like the Mora claim, the case has been
the subject of no small correspondence be
tween the two Governments, and it was
rumored late in Havana that owing to the
demands made by the State Department
at Washington the Agramonte claim
would be paid immediately after the settle
ment of Mora's claim.
One year ago the prospects of a settle
ment were so bright that a Spanish capi
talist came all the way from Madrid to
N6W York and tried to buy Senor Agra
monte's claim. Agramonte refused, stat
ing he had his case in the hands of the
State Department at Washington.
Seven months ago Mr. Agramonte died,
leaving five daughters, one of whom is
married to Benor Miguel de Morales of that
city. The claim is for the amount of
$1,500,000, with interest.

Hatred for the Prisoner Wa3
Freely Expressed by the
HISTORY OF THE HOMICIDE.
An Attachment for an Heiress the
Cause of the Alleged
DANVILLE, Ind., Sept. 4.— Rev. Wil
liam F. Hinshaw was arraigned in the
Circuit Court at this place this morning,
charged with the murder of bis wife
Theresa at Belleville on the night of Janu
ary 12. As the defendant, accompanied by
his family, was brought into court great
excitement prevailed, and mutterings of
"There goes a coward" and kindred ex
pressions of hatred were heard.
The defendant's counsel filed a motion
to quash the indictment, which was over
ruled by Judge Hadley. The defendant
then entered a plea of not guilty. The en
tire day was consumed in the attempt to
secure a jury.
The Hinshaw homicide was the most
sensational in the criminal history of tha
State. He was pastor of the leading Meth
odist church at Belleville and connected
with the wealthiest family in the city and
is accused of murdering his wife because of
an attachment for Allie Ferrere, the wealth
iest and prettiest girl in the vicinity. His
accuser is Detective H. C. Webster of
Indianapolis, who worked for the $4000 re
ward offered for the detection of the mur
The case was shrouded in mystery at
first, as every one believed the preacher's
statements that robbers killed his wife and
wounded him on the early morning of
January 1 last. "Webster narrowly escaped
being lynched when ne caused Hinshaw'a
arrest, but subsequent developments
aroused interest in the detective's claims
until now two-thirds of the people believe
Hinshaw is guilty.

brick tower at the southwest corner of the

The accident was due to the softening of
the mortar in the walls by the heavy rain

been taken off the building a few minutes
previous to the collapse, having just fin

the mortality would have been greater.

HOOTEO THE TROOPS.
Bitter Feeling Against the Militia a%
ISHPEMING, Wis., Sept. 4.— The feel
ing against the militia and the mine
managers is very bitter to-night. Import
ed workmen are met at the depot by troops
and but for the protection thus given the
men would fare badly. The Houghton
company escorted ten imported workmen
from the station to the mines to-day and
an immense crowd gathered and howled
itself hoarse about the troops. Superin
tendent Thomas F. Cole of Negaunee paid
a $60 fine to-day for slapping the face of a
delivery-boy yesterday. But for Mayor
Foley and cooler-headed miners Cole
might have been lynched last night. The
strikers are hungry and desperate, and
while they will not attack the soldiers a
very trivial cause might bring about dan
gerous riots at Ishpeming and Negaunee.
