IOWA COUNTY DEMOCRAT: MINERAL POINT, WISCONSIN, DECEMBER 1, 1893. WILLIS HOLDS BACK *% THE HAWAIIAN' GOVERNMENT YET UNCHANGED. COMPLETE IGNORANCE AS TO HIS INSTRUCT lONS. Steamer -Alameda Brings News From Honolulu—Willis Says lie Would Like to See the Stars and Stripes Waling Over Hawaii -Gresham Dis cnsliLs the Stitemeut. San 1- ruucisco, Nov. 2d. —The steam ship Alameda arrived from Honolulu today bringing news that no change had been made in the government up to the time of sailing A newspaper correspondent at Honolulu, writ ing under date of the Itith inst., says; As yet Minister Willis has made no intimation to this government of any special communication with which he may be charged, nor is it known that ho has any. The city is daily alive with strange rumors of the minister's intentions, all of which are traced to royalist sources. Three days ago the ex-queen made a brief call upon the American minister merely to pay her respects, as Mr. Willis subsequently stated. Up to this time Mr. Willis has not returned her visit. On the same day a committee of the American League tendered a reception to Min ister Willis, at which lie delivered an address in diplomatic but agreeable and encouraging term. After wel coming the committee and speaking in pleasing terms of Ms visit to Hawaii Minister Willis said: “I am an arddut American. I would like to see the stars and stripes waving not only over Hawaii but over all life islands of the Pacific ocean or any other territory which would be bene ficial to the United States. I have my instructions which I cannot divulge. You will understand this. But this much 1 can say: The policy of the United States is already formulated re garding these islands and nothing which can be said or done, either hero or theYe, can avail anything now. 1 do not come here as did Mr. Blount. However, I can say this much—that the policy of the United States is al ready formulated regarding these is lands, and nothing that can be said or done, either here or at home, can avail anything now. I come here as an executive officer, nnd 1 come to act. I shall act when the proper time comes. I cannot say now when or how. Know* iug the policy of the United States, I could not have accepted this position had it been in conflict with the prin ciples I hold. American residents will have nothing to regrdt. In carrying out the policy of the United States 1 shall need no aid from you or resident Americans. No outside interference will, I will positively state 1 , be tolerated by my government.” j This, implying that his action was United by specific nstructions was con st mod by royalist adherents as mean ing that he had positive l orders to re -1 store tlie queen and the royalists ap peared on the streets in a boastful and aggressive mood. The provisional government on the other hand, pro fesses to believe that it means a pro tectorate 1 . Definite action on Mr. Wil lis’ part is expected on the 23rd lust today. Hints have been given on board the cruiser Philadelphia that something would drop before or upon that date. The adherents of the queen and pro- J visional government are in an extreme ly ugly mood. Plots of the royalists to ' seize the throne are talked of by the government, supporters, but no Evidence of any conspiracy has been forthcoming. The royalists are boastful. It is be lived in some quarters that Mr. Willis is delaying action until the United States congress acts, but his speech would not seem to support such a con tention. I Admiral Irwin and staff were official ly received by President Dole on the 11th lust. Only two passengers from Honolulu arrived on the Alameda this morning. They were the Pongee brothers, div ers, who left this port for the purpose *of assisting In raising the wrecked sbvunship Midwera. They report everything quiet on the islands without any signs of impending trouble. Some of the officers of the steamship say, however, that trouble is expected and that an outbreak may come at any j moment. The threat made some time I ago that in the event of the deposed 1 queen insisting upon her restoration i she would Ik? assassinated is again freely made. J Washington. NofvV 23. —Both Presi dent Cleveland and Secretary Gresham i interpret the fact that the* situation , was unchanged when the Alameda left Honolulu as proof tint everything I was working smoothly toward the ap pointed end. It is absurd to think that Minister Willis has not informed the provisional government of his in -1 struotions. It is also absurd to think j that the provisional government would [remain silent did it not acquiesce ; the instructions. 1 President Cleveland and Se Gresham believe that when stamer arrives it will bring the news that those instructions have been car ried out to the letter. That steamer, however, is not expected for twenty days. The theory is advanced that before the next steamer arrives in San Fran- | edsco the queen may have been re stored, overthrown again and a republic j established. If true, so be it. The administration will have done its duty in undoing the wrong done by Stevens. If after being restored the queen can not hold on to her throne that is her look out. Secretary Gresham received a mes- j sage this afternoon from Minister Wil- 1 lis giving a complete report of the, Hawaiian situation up to the time of | the departure of the Alameda. The exact contents of the message j are not known by anyone besides the , president and his cabinet The fact is given out however, that its contents | are satisfactory. GRESHAM DON’T BELIEVE IT. Washington, Nov. 23.—A copyright ( letter from Honolulu wae read to. Secretary Gresham by an Associated 1 i Freds ropresqntauive today. At the' i portion where Willis is reported as | saying he would be glad to see the ‘‘ t American flag ovtA Hawaii and every other island in the Pacific, the secre tary said: j “I don’t believe that.” Even as subsequently modified by j Willis, with the additional clause, “un der proper conditions,” the secretary j said the minister must have been in correctly reported. i “Willis is a capable man,” he said, j “he ought not to have talked on that 'subject at a H and I don’t believe he : did.” j FATAL FIRE IN THE MICHIGAN METROPOLIS. Detroit. Mioh., Nov. 22. —One of the ’ worst tires Detroit has experienced for I many years occurred today, and com -1 pletely destroyed the live-story build i lug occupied by Edson Moore & Cos., wholesale dry goods, and damaged sev- I er.d adjacent buildings, causing a loss 'of 8700,000.

Long before the engines re sponded, two men were seen on the 1 window sills of the fifth story. The 1 crowd shouted: “Don't jump,” “don't jump”. “There’s help coming.” A bale of jute was placed below the 1 window on which Bradley Dunning perched. Driven by flames which roar ed around him he sprang, lauded on the bale. An ambulance carried him to the hospital where he died. 1 The firemen spread a net to catch McKay, who fell into it. His injuries were such that he, too. died soon after being taken to the hospital, i Another man was then seen near an upper window. Ilis strength apparent ly gave out, for after an effort to raise himself ho slowly sank back and dis appeared from view. He is thought to be Edward Gwither. The property loss is well covered by insurance. John J. Bagley’s tobacco works suffered a loss of $25,000, cov : ered by insurance.

I ' Sharper Swindles a Green County Man Out of $5OO. ! Monticello, Wis., Nov. 22. —A few days since a sharper, representing him- I self as a stock buyer, called at the ' farm house of Jacob Murty, a well-to do farmer residing about live miles ' southeast of this village, and purchased 1 some stock, paying $5 down. I r l’he stock was to be delivered at Monroe and the sharper secured the signature of Murty on a contract to I that effect.

Lawyers and others admit that he is one of the coolest and cleverest men ever put on a wit ness stand.

The* Services al the Little Church ami at the Grave Are Fittingly Very Plain—Buried With Masonic Hon ors—Dr. Butler’s Touching Sermon- Salute by Veterans. Viroipia. Wis.. Nov. 2-L— A man of the people was borne to his hwt earth ly resting place this afternoon. With the tones of a toiling bell borne softly on the cold winter wind and an echo ing musket volley, the last earthly farewell was said to Gen. Jeremiah M. Rusk. A concourse of sorrowing friends such as is seldom seen assembled to lake part in the services. Special trains brought men of national promi nence who had known the dead man in the halls of stab' and the councils of the great; friends and neighbors who knew him as stage driver, sheriff, congressman, governor and cabinet member but who knew him best as friend, gathered by the bier; and farmers came in sleighs from distant parts of the county, braving zero winds and yard-deep drifts of snow. The tribute was a lifting one and was paid in a homely manner as suited the man, his life and ids death. Several special trains arrived dur ing the forenoon bringing delegations from Wisconsin towns within a ra dius of fifty miles from Virotpia. Shortly before noon (he gubernatorial train from Madison, which brought Governor Peek and his staff, the state officers, a number of close personal and political friends of the deceased, many of whom had held office under him during the years of his service as chief executive of the common wealth, and nearly one hundred mem bers of the Wisconsin consistory of the military order of the loyal legion. The train from Milwaukee, bringing ex-P resideait Harrison, ex-A(torney General Miller, Senator Vilas and the ex-governors and ex-senators of the state, reached the depot at 1:45. A large crowd had assembled, but beyond a general raising of hats as Gen. Harrison stepped from the ear and crossed the platform there was no demonstration of welcome or recog nition. Carriages were in waiting, and while Generals Harrison and Miller and Sen ator Vilas were driven to the family residence to express their sorrow and sympathy to the widow and bereaved family the remainder of the party was taken direct to the church. All night the nine faithful war com rades of the dead had stood guard around the bier. From midnight to daybreak it was a lonely vigil. An interior scarcely larger than a country school house, a dozen benches of gray painted pine, around and about the walls streamed festoons and rosettes of crepe relieved only by a mammoth American flag, the stars to the north, the stripes to the south, forming a background to the rostrum; the casket with covering of broadcloth and drapery of silken stars and stripes; the calm, placid, white face of the dead; the thin hand laid across tin* breast and. seemingly clutching the bunch of withering violets; the last fond toker. of the widow. All through the morning the remains tested in state, while a steady stream of people from far and near passed around the bier. The church was closed for an hour prior to the time appointed for the funeral services to begin; then the* doors were thrown open and the Ma sonic bodies and the loyal legion filed in. In front of the casket were the seats reserved for the mourners, In the pew reserved for the mourn ers also sat Gen. Harrison. At the left were the knights templar, at the right the loyal legion, occupying seats directly behind the pall-bearers and honorary pall bearers. Behind these were the state officials and other dis tinguished personages from a distance. The church was far too small to accommodate the crowd that had as sembled to take part in or witness the ceremonies, and the churchyard and the street immediately in front of the house of worship were crowded. De spite the cold wind hundreds stood in the open air until the procession took its way toward the cemetery. The funeral services began with the singing of the hymn, Just as 1 Am, rendered by a home quartettee con sisting of Mrs. E. W. Hazen, Miss Wheeden, Dr. Frank Morley and Jack son Silbaugh, Miss Regina Lindemanu officiating at the organ. The Rev. G. W. Nuzum, who had known Gen. Husk nearly half a cen tury and once said that the general twice saved his little home from the sheriff’s hammer, offered a prayer in which ho touchingly referred to the dead, the Mving left to mourn and the hope of a certain reunion beyond the dark river. The quartette then sang Load Kind ly Light, and the Rev. Dr. J. D. Butler, of Madison, delivered the brief ser mon on the life of the dead man, the lesson it taught and the hope it gave of everlasting life. Dr. Butler's text was from Jeremiah 48, xvii.—“ All they that are about him bemoan him and all they that know his nam say how is the strong staff broken and the beautiful rod.” “These words,” began Dr. Butler, “befit a man much lamented and much loved; much lamented because greatly loved.” He continued; “Such being the feeling of our coun trymen for the man who has fallen they have come to this place. We have come to bury him, to pay the last hon ors to him, to pay our condolences, our heartfelt condolences to his bereaved family. We come weeping with those that weep—weeping at the graveside of our friend—of your friend—as Jesus wept at the graveside of His friend. We commend you to God, who does not willingly afflict but who chastens not for his pleasure, but for our profit Time shall come to you with healing in his wings. At that future day i ‘"The idea of his life shall sweetly ] creep Into your study of imagination; And every lovely feature of his life Shall come appareled in more prec- | ions habit. More moving delicate and full of life ' Into the eye and prospect of your soul. Than when he lived indeed!’ "All they that are about him bemoan him and all they that know his name say how is the strong staff broken and the beautiful rod"—This is the third time that I have used this text at a public funeral. The first time was near half a century ago in Vermont at the obsequies of Hansom, colonot of a New England regment, killed at the storm ing of t’hepultepee and brought home for burial in the village where he and 1 were associated in a military academy. The next time was in our own state eapital. over the remains of Theodore Head, killed in a desperate endeavor, largely successful, in (Grant’s opinion, to stop the escape of (Jen. l.ee. For years there was daily danger that (leu. Husk’s remains would have likewise been brought home. Hut (lod saved him then, having a greater service for him in peace than in war. What that service lias been you know full well. He has rounded the full circle; he has won golden opinions from all sorts of people in all walks of life; he has been clean in his great ottice—in all his offices. He had, as becometh old age. honor, love, obedience, hosts of frit mis. “We love to trace great things to their small beginnings. 1 have myself taken no small pains to reach the very source of the .lordan. I love to trace the great man who has fallen to his boyhood. Early bereaved of his father and thrown upon his own resources, his energy and determination b ante man ifest. He was determit o make his way in the world. Horses seem to have been the most efficient instrument of Ids early culture. His ability to manage wild horses was the earliest talent he developed—his first stepping-stone to success. It is no ticeable that this was also the experi ence of Alexander the (treat, of whom the first thing we hear is his dexter ity in training the wild steed of the plain. "The child is father of the man, and in the subsequent career of Husk we behold many repetitions of his child hood experience. It is a vast removal from the seat of a stage driver to that in a cabinet, where his intluence ex tends from ocean to ocean and from the great gulf to the chiefest among ten thousand unsalted seas. As sheriff he had wilder men to tame than any horses. So he had through the war of the rebellion. And during the anarch istic riots in Milwaukee;—those riots he quelled seven years ago so effectually that they have known no resurrection. From first. 1* last he has shown him self not only competent for every posi tion he has been called to till, but equal to every emergency. “One is inclined to say he should have lived longer—ho should have died hereafter. Such men are few; we need them longer—longer. He still lacked seven years of the psalmist’s TO. We love to imagine what in another score he might possibly have acheived—what greater influence for good his long ex perience, his prestige and the hearts of the people in his hand might have enabled him to exert. Death has blasted our hopes, cast down our high imagi nations. We behold here the end of earth. Hut is it tin* end? No—a thou sand times no! I call it the beginning. No feeling is more pervasive among men than that this life is the thres hold of another. It has been my for tune to circle the globe, traveling as far as the sun travels and from the equator where man casts no shadow at noon to the hind of the midnight sun, where the night was ever as the day; I found no people who do not by funer al ceremonies and monuments attest their faith in life beyond life. “The preaching of Paul was ‘Jesus and the resurrection.’ Christ raised the dead and rose himself as a pledge and a proof that he shall raise our vile bodies in the likeness of His glorious body—not having spot, nor wrinkle, nor any such thing. It is an anchor to the soul when bereaved to feel that what is sown in weakness shall be raised in power; sown a natural body, raised a spiritual body; sown in dis honor, raised in honor. Strong is the consolation to feel that the friend we bury has gone where he can know God better and serve Him more effectually than belongs to the lot of earth. I “Time would fail me to speak of the manifold excellencies in the departed; of the popularity that ran after him but after which lie did not run; of his honesty—public and private; of his temperance—l should rather say absti nence—from his youth up. His as sociates felt that he was so good that they would gladly believe him great even greater than he was. He has left this life; let us not lose the lesson of his death. Let it cause the spiritual, heavenly, eternal and divine to predom inate in our souls. When we lay down this garment of clay in which we have ministered here, may it be ours to stand in the host on Mount Zion, who ascribe unto Him that sittoth on the throne and unto the Lamb, power and riches and wisdom and strength and glory and honor and blessing—world without cud. Amen I The mourners withdrew and for a few moments the relatives were left alone with the dead. Taen the casket was closed and borne to the hearse ' and the procession, which was nearly ' a mile in length, moved to the local ' cemetery, a mile distant. | At the grave in the family lot a brief committal prayer was said by Dr. Butler, the masonic funeral ritual was repeated and the cedar casket, which in the meantime had been in cased in a burglar-proof metal shell, was lowered into the grave. A salute was fired by a detail of grand army veterans, the earth was shoveled into the open grave and Jere miah M. Rusk, his life, death and burial had passed into history. | MAY JOIN COUGHLIN.
