Washiiigion, Jan. 11. Ilirly this morning
Secretary Orcihtm received fornnl notice
that thero had been nn attempt at revolution
noir Honolulu on the (Uli of this month.
This notlco i.itne In the shape of the fol
lowing dispatch from -Minister Willis tel
egraphed from San rr.tnclnco:
"Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands, Jan, 11.
To Hon. . Q. Gresham, secretary of
state, Washington, D. C.l At Walklkl
bench, live miles from executive bulldlni:,
night of Jnnuary C, uprising of Ilnwallans.
reporteil several hundred well supplied
with nuns nml ammunition. Commanded
by Captain Nonteln and II. W. Wilcox.
Hon. C. I.. Cartcr.'lnte commlssloiicr.ltilloil
first night. Desultory fighting every day
since, without further losi of life or prop
erty to government. Three Kojnllsts killed
and fifty taken prisoners. Over fifty non
combilnnts. mostly whites, arrested, In
cluding three ex-attorney generals and
miny prominent citizens. .Martial law de
clared January 7. No cisels nllowed to
leio. All other Isl.uidH repoited quiet.
Crlids Ihought to bo oier, but excitement
still Intense. President Dolo expressed lo
me hli gratification that no national ship
has been In port during this (llsturliince.
Arms teportcd lo have been brought tram
Vancouver by the Norm. WILLIS."
Sieietniy Gresham soon after ho reached
the state department sent to the navy de
pirtment for Secretary Herbert nml they
"iigaged In a close ronsiiltntlou for h lit
in hour, renting to the advisability of
sending n Unltiil States cruiser to the
Islands. .Mr. Herbert stated that the Phil
adelphia was at Mure Island, Cnl , nml
could start almost immediately, delaying
only long enough after receiving her sail
ing orders to take a few fresh storei nml
a little extra coal nboard. She call led a
complement of nearly 100 officers and men,
commanded by Captain Colton, and could
make the run of 2.0S0 miles tn Honolulu 111
about six ilojs. After consulting for some
time the two secretaries rnmc to the con
clusion that nothing should bo done toward
sending a ship to Hawaii except by direc
tion of the president, so they went directly
to the White House to leiun the president's
wishes In the matter. PeCore leivlnff the
department Secretary Herbert conferred
with Admiral Ramsey, chief of the navi
gation bureau, and everything was put In
trim for tho Immediate dispatch of sailing
orders to Ailmhal He irdslce, should the
president decide to send a ship to Hawaii.
There was a disposition on tho part of the
administration officials to rtgaril the Im
portance of the revolutionary movement as
exaggerated, nnd one piomlnent olllcl.il
deel ired that ho saw no reason for appre
hension, for It hid not.appcared from tho
reports that nny American Interests hod
been endangered by the uprising.
Some officers, however, who have been
sjf itlono.l nt Honolulu, nnd who are famil
iar with conditions there, took i widely
different view- of tho matter. They say
ihat the character Of the Interior ot the
Kl.iiids Is such that even a small number
of determined men might hold their own
for many weeks against a much superior
force, Just as did Geronlmo and his
Apaches In tlm Hid lands, when opposed
by a military force.
They rconll the fact that a few lepers
managed to resist all tho troops that the
Hawaiian government could bring to bear
against them for a long time, hiding se
curely In the fastnesses on tiro mountains
when haul pressed and emerging In force
when the pressure rclnxid. These officers
fear that the binds ot Wilcox nnd ..owleln
will thus servo as focll to attract disaf
fected natives and gather strength. The
leaders, it Is feared, will nlso offer nny
terms lo secure the suport of tho Japan
ese coolies, numbering 20,000, who have
be"ii much dissatisfied with the refusal
of tlm government to give them thn light
of suffrage According to tho leporta
theso Japanese have alieady shown a
mutinous spirit, and In his report on Ha
waiian nfialrs, which excited so much In

danger to bo looked for In tho neur future

Tho riostou and Marlon are rendy to go

owing lo the refusal of congress to pro
vide for enough enlisted men to meet tho
absuluto needs ot tha navy, thero are no
crews for them.
The Olympia will not bo turned over to
the government until tho 21th lust., nnd
will bo put In commission on February C,

Tho rangera, .Mohican nnd Alert, old
low powered ships, would bcarcely be
chosen for uso In nny emergency tequlr
Ing speed, nnd tho Montoiey cannot carry
coal sulllclcut for the crulso to Honolulu.
After the further consideration of tlm
subject, Secretary Gresham requested See
let.iry Herbert to dispatch a naval ves
sel to Hawaii Immediately, Tho vessel
Uionen Is the Philadelphia, nnd sho will
have on board Admiral ltennlsb-e. the
commander of the naval station. Secre
tary Gresham states that tha scndlni; ot
a vessel to Hawaii Is not caused directly
by tho receipt of the Willis dlnpatch, but
ns a matter of extreme caution taken In
order that nono of our Inteiesta may bo

The telegram, the minister thinks, was
written on the i-y the Alameda left Hono

able cotuse of action, the minister said
he did not expect at present to call on the
secretury of Btato In connection with the
trouble, nor did ho Intend to ask that a
United States ship be bent to Hawaii.
"Tho government H lUclf able to put

In conclusion tho minister said he did
not anticipate nny foreign Intervention In

sel In the harbor of Honolulu nt the time
the troublo occurred was the T.smer.ildn,
which hnd been purchased by .Japan Indi
rectly from the Chilian government for

Topeki, Kns Jan. 19 -(Special) The
senatorial problem Is giadually nppio tell
ing solution. It Is the most Intensely
Interesting episode In Kansas politics
since tint memorable day when Senator
York walked down the aisle of the Kmsas
houe and exposed the perfidy of a United
States senator by losing on the speaker's
desk the $7,0i) which he had received as
the price of his vote. Tin re Is no charge
of bribery In the present contest, but
there Is Hint same Intensity of doubt ns
lo Its Hml outcome. The generalship of
Mr. Hurton has been such u revelation to
the old win horses of Kansas politics
that they no longer pretend to be ceit.iln
of the fulfillment of any of their plans.
The oung statesman from Abilene has
org.inlred a c.impilgn which challenges
the ndmlratlnu of even his enemies, nnd
so far he has had distinctly the best ot
eveiy move but one on the political
rheckcrbo ird There Is no rertnlnly that
he will not turn up on Monday with a
coup d' etat that will rout the forces of
the opposition, no nutter how well their
campaign raiy be laid.
The Hood, Ady, Tliachcr and Lelind
men haw agreed to meet at 2 o'clock on
Mondny afternoon to decide, If possible,
upon a candidate It Is said that this
agreement went even further nnd Included
a pledge to agree upon one of the four
men nnd not go outside for a dark horse
liven If this Is accomplished. It Is not
certain that enough voters will be In the
caucus to make an election. Ot coursiv
It Is claimed that the opposition Ins a
majority, but at this stage of the game
It Is only records which count, and so
far the opposition has placed upon record
but Li votes, while C4 are necessary for a
choice. On tho other hand tho Hurton men
claim that they have assured tho nomina
tion ot their candidate on the first billot
Mondny night, but there airnln records are
at fault, for so far Hurton has shflwn up
but f2 votes and no mote.
If the agreement lo nominate one of the
four men above u lined Is adhered to the
friends of Major Hood are confident of
tho iholco falling upon hi in He had de
veloped a voting strength of SO be
foie the adjournment of the caucus on
Wednesday, and the character of his ciui
p.ilgn has been so amiable and good-in-titred
that thero nre no objections to him
At noon to-day n rumor gained swift
currency that the antl-llurton forces had
compromised upon Goxernor Morrill. It
created excitement for the monifiit nnd
there wns a skurrylng aliout among the
fotces upon both sldfs. Mr. Hurton visited
the governor at tho stale house and ap
parently came away satisfied A reporter
next called upon his excellency with the
result of finding him In bis
usual Mite of good-natured composute.
"I am not a candidate for United Status
senator." said the governor, "and 1 will
not penult eithei side lo talk to mo about
the matter If I can help It. I mil going
home to llliwatha this afternoon nnd the
fiutherest from my thoughts Is any rou
sldei.itlon of such nil evint as uu election
to the Unltid States senate"
When questioned as to whether nnv
such agrieiiKiit had been arrived at, Major
Hood sild. "Theie Is nothing In the leport
so far as I am concerned. 1 am going homo
this afurnoon, but I will lie b.u k on Mon
day, and It Is thn present ixpntatlon of
my friends to go Into the 2 o'clock am us
as strong as they can with no question of
a dark liuise burdening their minds."
Joe Ady bald: "There Is positively noth
ing In the report of a compromise on the
governor so tar as I am concerned. Of
louise, I have heard Ihe talk, but I am
suro It Is entirely uuaiitlimlid. Wo will
meet at 2 o'clock on Moud ly to agree
then upon a candidate."
Judge Thacher had returned to his home
In Lawrence, but his lieutenants Insisted
that there was no truth In thu report.
Hut there Is no question of tho fact
that among the politicians there Is a grow
ing feeling that If the opposition Is com
pelled to go outside for a candidate, the
iholco will fall upon Governor Morrill.
Somebody Is evidently trying to work up
a Morrill boom, most likely without his
know ledge, mid It his met with a cordial
reception from tho lobbies.
Most of the members have gone homo for
Sunday and the headiuai teis arn com
paratively quiet. Stories of this or th.it
member dimming to or against Hurton are
filing thick, but If pursued to the member
lilliisi If they are found groundless, Thu
question of whero Itepreseut.itlvo Hack
biisch, of l.iavenworth, will stand Ih nn ab
sorbing ono. Ho has shown ly every
vote so far that Iw Is opposed to Hurton,
but he claims Independence of nny caucus
pledges, and the possibility remains of
Ids going to that gt nth man In event of
tho opposition cuudld.ito not being to his
There Is no fear expressed by thn mem
bers that Ihe day will aulve for the voting
for United stales senator berore tho Re
publicans havo agreed upon a candidate.
It Is ns certain as such things ran bo
that the mini will be named by Monday
night and that tho caucus nominee will
iccclvo tho united support of the pirly

boiling on either sldn and the Populists

of a Uepiibllc.iu row which will make their
