Cleveland's Coining Message and Commissioner Blount's Report Awaited With Eager Interest Springer Thinks the President "Will Be Sustained by His Party and the Couutry. Washixgtox, Nov. 14.— Hawai lanjincident is attracting much attention n political circles, and such seuators md representatives as are in the city are evincing the liveliest inteiest in the latest developments. Even at this early date it is accepted as inevitable that the matter will receive congressional atten tion immediately alter the opening of the session, and aii the indications point to a division on the strict party lines. The republicans accept tbe Gresham letter as a criticism of the late administration, and tne promptitude with which ex-President Harrison and ex-Minister Stevens have responded has had the immediate effect of lining the Republicans up in opposition to the policy of President Cleveland's admin istration. Congressman liitt, ex-secre tary of state, and a diplomat of the Blame stripe, has come out in con demnation of the movement to restore the deposed queeu. and his statements on the subject have stirred up consider able partisan feeling. It is he belief of Democratic leaders that whatever might occur at Hawaii in the interval. President Cleveland will submit a message at the opening of the regular session which will recite in detail many facts not hitherto known to this country, and present the case in probably an entirely new light. In this connection great interest is felt in the report of Special Commissioner Blount, which has never been made public, and as it will accompany the prospective message Democrats feel confident that his researches will snow that the facts were such as to warrant the radical action of the administration. THE DEMOCRATS expect to be put on the defensive at the beginning, because they believe that the policy of the republicans will be to ' attack the president on constitutional grounds, it being contended by them that the provisional government of Hawaii having once been recognized, to remove it now by force will be equiv alent to declaring an aggressive war against an independent nation, a thing only possible for the president to do after receiving the assent and con currence of congress. The Democrats who a day or so ago were expressing themselves so freely on this diplomatic subject have shut up quite suddenly since the indications have pointed to a division on party lines when the matter comes before congress. Congressman Geary, of California, a member of the committee on foreign affairs, and whose constituents have a lively interest iuthe Hawaiian question, today said: "All the facts are not before the pub lic yet, and I would prefer to say noth ing uutil later. As a member of trie com mittee it would be indiscreet in me to express an opinion on a matter that may come before us for consideration." Hon. W. M. Springer, of lllinois.-for many years a member ot the committee on foreign affairs, notably during the Japanese controversy of 1876. believes that President Cleveland will be sus tained by his party and the country. "I am thoroughlyjin accord with the administration on the Hawaiian ques tion." said Mr. Springer. "I believed at the time that the government of Hawaii would not have been over thrown but for the direct interposition of the United States marines, which were landed for the purpose of over awing and overpowering the LEGITIMATE GOVEKXMEXT and establishing a provisional govern ment in its place. Without the pres ence of our troops the provisional gov ernment could have had no existence. As we were then at peace with Hawaii, there was no excuse whatever for this interposition. The excuse that Amer ican property lequired protection was a mere pretext, and was without foundation in fact. Our gov ernment having, therefore, by force of arms, overthrown the legitimate gov ernment of Hawaii, justice, internation al law and the comity of nations re quire that we should replace that gov ernment in statu quo. "The Harrison administration," re sumed Mr. Springer, "did, it is true, recognize the provisional government, and it therefore became the duty of Mr. Cleveland's administration to main tain the statu quo whicii he found when installed into office until he could through his own agents make a careful and thorough investigation -of all the facts which led to the overthrow of the Hawaiian government. Having made his investigation through his owu agents, it was his duty to act upon the information which he obtained. This is what he has done, and if any criti cism could be offered it would be that he had perhaps delayed too long to do an act of simple justice to a weak and defenseless people. But exercising proper regard for the late administra tion, and pursuing the usual considerate and careful methods of diplomacy, Sec retary Gresham has acted at perhaps as early a period as it was. re spect! vi for Mm to do— respect ful. 1 mean, to his predecessors in office. iam not in favor of annexa tion of Hawaii. The populace is not homogeneous: their civilization is differ ent from ours. We could no more in corporate them into our body politic than we could incorporate a portion of China. \\ hat we .require is that Hawaii shall be an independent country, where our government will have equal rights with all others to use the land as a coal ing station, as a harbor of refuge and as a friendly, port upon -.he high seas for all our merchant marine. And while I am opposed to annexation by this gov ernment, lam equally opposed to any other governments seizing the islands"; and if England should attempt to do so our government should regard it as a "causus belli," and resent it accord ingly. Our policy of non-intervention in this case would furnish us a good ex cuse in insisting that England should 20 likewise. I think the Democrats in rongress will sustain the administration without a doubt." CONFERS WITH GRESHAM. Hawaiian Minister Thurston Talks With the secretary. Washingtok, Nov. 14.— Hawaiian Minister Thurston had a long confer ence with Secretary Gresham at the state department today, but neither would say anything for publication re g-irtHng the interview. As soon as Min ister Thurston left Mr. Gresham went to'.h« Whits house to attend the cabinet DAILY ST. PAUL GLOBE meeting. Mr. Thurston declined to give any information of the intelligence he received from Honolulu yesterday by cipher dispatch, except to say that the Associated Press dispatches seemed to be accurate in their account of what had occurred. As to anything that was to occur he refused to have anything to say. The secretary made au appoint ment to see Mr. Thurston again this afternoon at the department. It is said that this interview will serve to throw some light on the problem as to what diplomatic relations this government claims to hold toward the existing Ha waiian government. INTEREST INCREASES. What Form of Government Shall Hawaii Have Washixgtox, Nov. 14.— The specula tion as to what has been occurring in Hawaii duriug the week past is by no means abated. Nearly every one has taken one side or the ojther.and is either an earnest wisher for*the prompt suc cess of the effort to restore the queen, or is vainly hopeful that something ay intervene to balk the purpose an nounced by this government. The fear of the friends of the present government is that Minister Willis will push Presi dent Dole to an immediate decision and demand prompt surrender of ail author ity,* on the ground that the government itself put a limit upon the duration of its own authority, and the time expires when Minister Willis announces to him that there is no possible chance of an nexation to the United States. It is a fact that for several months past the provisional government has recognized that there was no hope of securing an nexation to the United States and has felt fully the obligation upon it, under those circumstances, of providing a permanent form of government for the islands. The form of the proposed government has been discussed, and it has been pro posed to call it a commonwealth. It is expected that President Dole will ad vance these facts as arguments against the contention of Minister Willis that his government — the government to which Willis is accredited— has expired by us own limitation. Should Miuister Willis decline to recognize the validity of this argument, and President Dole determine to follow his contention so far as lies in his power, his next step i_j expected to be formally to notify the United States minister that he would not yield without force, and that he would regard the landing of troops from the men-of-war to enforce his deposition as an act of war. The diplomatic rep resentatives of foreign countries in Honolulu are always looked to with eagerness in a civil emergency, and the opponents of restoration assert their belief that these would formally protest against the act of the United States minister, with the exception ot the representatives of Great Britain and Jtipan,aud probably Russia. There have been rumors in the state department that the Uuited States has not entered upon the attempt to restore the qujen without a thorough understanding with all the powers, and it is said the govern ment has received assurances that no objection would be raised to its plan. With regard to Germany, France and Portugal, opponents of restoration say that citizens of all these powers recog nized the necessity to good order and preservation of property and constitu tional rights of the overthrow of the queen. These governments, they be lieve, would decline to approve her restoration. VSBi Great Britain would unquestionably welcome the restoration of the queen and the prospect of the early accession of the Princess Kaiulani as tlie best hope ot a government distinctly in the British interest. B\ a convention with France in 1843 England agreed to re frain from ever annexing the Hawaiian islands or taking them under a pro tectorate, but she has never ceased to try to influence and control the local government to her own interests. The effect of the restoration of the queen upon the United States interests in Pearl river harbor is of interest. The exclusive right of the United States to use the harbor was the reciprocal consideration granted on the free entry of Hawaiian sugar into the United States under the Hawaiian reciprocity, It is conceded tnat the free tariff on sugar under the McKinley law worked an abrogation of the special advantage enjoyed by Hawaiians under this treaty, and they have held that the rights of the United States in Pearl river were terminated by it. it is known that this was an influence with the last adminis tration in its consideration of the pro posal for annexation. In the present stat us of our claim to Pearl river, a govern ment unfriendly to it. backed by a first class power seeking to break down the claim, might very seriously embarrass aud jeopardize the control of the most valuable naval and coaling station in the Pacific. There is some disappoint ment felt iv administration circles at the expressions of public opinion against the Hawiian policy, but there are no indications of any wavering iv the pur pose to push it to a conclusion. There is a good deal of interest iv the state ment put forth, by one near the presi dent, tnat there is much iv the evidence in the Blount report that bus not been suggested to the public, and that would if published work a revolution in senti ment on the. former administration's policy. SHIPS FOR HAWAII. The Ranger and Mohican Will Go to Honolulu. Vallejo, Cal., Nov. 14.— 1t is said on good naval authority that as soon as the United States ships Ranger and Mohic an, now at Mare Island navy yard, can be made ready for sea the secretary of tbe navy will order their commanders to proceed direct to Honolulu and re port to Admiral Irwin. On arrival at Hawaii the Mohican will be made flag ship of the I'acitie squadron, relieving the Philadelphia, which will im mediately proceed to Mare Island navy yard. The • ordering of the Ranger and Mohican to Hawaii to re lieve the Philadelphia is said to be due to the fact that President Cleveland ae sires to concentrate all available ships of the Pacific squadron in Hawaiian waters, aud that the combined crews of the Ranger and Mohican would facili tate the landing of a larger force than that of the Philadelphia. Naval otticers here are extremely cautious in com menting on the preseut attitude of Hawaiian affairs, yet do not hesitate in predicting the concentration of a large naval force of the United States at Honolulu. Several offi cers who were serving on board the Boston at the time of the dethrone ment of Queen Liiionkalani deny the story that the marines from the Boston were landed through any "mistake in interpreting the signals from tiw Unit-id State.*- consulate. They state that as a howling mob thronged the streets of Honolulu and the situation was BO threatening to American interests, thai Minister Stevens, after deliberating with the senior naval officers, deemed the landing of- marines essential to ST. PAUL, MINN., WEDNESDAY MOANING, NOVEMBER 15, 1893. American interests and the pro tection of the consulate, which had been broken into and ransacked on the night previous. While it is plain to see that every naval officer, from ensign to admiral, regrets the policy of President Cleveland and Spe cial Envoy Blount, they show marked emphasis in their demeanor to follow the directions or their superiors. Work on the Ranger and Mohican will be pushed vigorously in order to get the ships ready for sea with as Little delay as possible. A rumor is current here to night that Minister Willis is going to Honolulu as the bearer of orders to Ad miral Irwin from the secretary of the navy, directing that in the event of the rejection of President Cleveland's ulti matum to the provisional government, or any uprising. Admiral Irwin would dispatch the United States ship Adams to the United States with any special communication Minister Willis might be required to send for the information of Washington authorities. Admiral Sker ritt, who was seen on the matter, said while such a course was probable, ho had no knowledge of it. UNANIMOUS CABINET. All Agree With President Cleve land's Plan. Washington-, Nov. 14.— 1t is learned on good authority that the cabinet is a unit in its indorsement of President Cleveland's plan for the restoration of Queen Liliuokalani. This fact was developed after the conclusion of the cabinet meeting today. The Hawaiian question was the chief topic of discus sion. The meeting was attended by all the members except Secretary Smith, who was in Georgia. The session began at 11 and lasted until 1:30 o'clock. This is about the usual length or cabinet sessions. Secretary Morton remained with the president after the adjourn ment, and it is presumed he took luuch eon with him. After the close of the meeting a reporter was informed by a gentleman who participated in it that nothing would be made public today on the Hawaiian question as a result of the meeting or otherwise. Storer is a Kicier. Washixgtox, Nov. 14.— Congressman Storer, of Ohio, a member of the com mittee on foreign affairs, declared that he would never vote a dollar to sustain the administration in its Hawaiian pol "I have seen none of the members of the foreign affairs committee," he con tinued, "out 1 tor one will not aid the administration in its attempt to restore the queen to the Hawaiian throne. I most heartily indorse the sentiments ex pressed by Congressman Uitt." "NIGGER IX IH ; WOODPILE." Queer Matrimonial Mix-Up in North Dakota. Special to the Globe. Jamestown, N. D., Nov. 14.— 0n the I 3d and 4th insts. the Jamestown papers j recorded the marriage, by a well-known clergyman of this city, of W. L. Wright and Mrs. Elizabeth Header, a widow \ with three children, both of La Moure, '< La Moure county. At the time Wright stated to your correspondent tiiat he had been recently successful in secur ing a judgment against a threshing ma chine company for $15,000 for the loss of an arm, of which amount he had just j received $7,220. Whether this statement j is true or not is not known here. A copy of a Jamestown paper fell into j the hands of W. H. Ellis, of Oakes, at- I torney for Mrs. W. L. Wright, who is suing for a divorce, and inquiries were at once set on foot. Sunday Mrs. Wright, the aggrieved wife, arrived in the city and proceeded to investigate. The only evidence of her husband having been here was an entry on a hotel register which read "Mr. aud Mrs. W. L. Wrignt. La Moure"— Room 6. A search in the rec ords of the county judge revealed the issuauce of no marriage license, and the minister alleged to have married the couple states that he never met either. From the friend accompanying the real Mrs. Wright it was learned that upon a certain occasion this year Wright attempted the life of his wife, but was j only prevented by the timely arrival of assistance and the fact that her assail i ant has but oue arm. At the approach of help Wright tied, but was captured after about a mile run and jailed. The case was not pushed against him, and he was finally released on condition that he would leave the country. Pre vious to the separation Mrs. Wright supported both herself and her hus band, who was out of work for a long time. -« Sioux Palls People Excited. Special to the Glebe. Sioux Faxes, S.

WILL KEEP THEIR PLEDGES DEMOCRATS WILL CARRY OUT THE PEOPLE'S DEMAND IN A REDUCTION OF TA3IFF New Revenue Rill Almost Ready far Submission to the House — It Will Not Be Considered' in Caucus — Opposition* to the Free Wool Schedule— Many Proteus Against the Free List. Washixgtox*, Nov. 14.— The new Democratic tariff bill will probably be made public at a much earlier date than has generally been anticipated. The notes of apprehension which have been sounded since the late election have warned the resolute tariff reformers of the party that the chances of party suc cess and discipline depend upon bold ness aud promptitude in defining a policy, and all haste consistent with de liberation is being made by the Demo cratic members to complete the bill and give it to the country. It is already definitely settled that the committee will not wait for the approval of a cau cus before presenting the measure to the people. While some of the Democratic members of the committee think that the bill might be strengthened in the house by first gaining the approval of -a party caucus, the majority feel-that the submission of the bill to caucus would only lead to interminable wrangling, and possibly create a party dissension which might seriously embarrass the measure on its consideration later in the house. Besides, the Democratic leaders contend that the party has suffi cient confidence in the ways and means committee to be quite willing to accept as satisfactory the bill prepared by them after so many weeks of delibera tion, and that the report accompanying it will be of a character strong enough to silence the fastidious criticism within the party. While Mr. Bland, of Mis souri, Mr. Culberson, of Texas, and others, have openly announced the in tention of opposing the FREE WOOL SCHEDULE on the floor of the house, they have ap parently abandoned any hope of secur ing a party caucus ou the tariff bill pre vious to its introduction. In discussing the matter Mr. Cuibeison said today: "I have always maintained that the tariff bill should be tirst considered by a Democratic caucus.aud 1 still think tnis should be done; but Ido not see how we can hope to have it done before it is introduced. In the first piace.there. was a rule passed just before adjournment which gave the committeetne right to hand the bill to the clerk and have it printed as introduced any time it may desire to do so. No one paid much at tention to that action of the house at the time, but we now realize that it gives the committee the privilege of forinailv introducing the bill even before the regular session convenes, the only re striction being the Republican members or the committee shall have ten days in which to prepare a minority report. This rule, of course, cuts off all hope of having a caucus before the introduction of the bill, and Ido not see that we can do anything to help it. Whatever ob jections Democratic members may nave to the bill will have to be expressed in the open house, though I believe the the proper place to first air our party grievances should be in a caucus." The ways and means committee of at least the Democratic members of it — are doing all their work in subcommit tees, and the bill is so rapidly nearing completion that a large portion of the report to accompany the measure on its presentation to the house is already prepared. Each subcommittee.as it com pletes the work on the several duties referred to it for revision, prepares the committee's report on these schedules, aud, although this work is held to be reviewed by the full Democratic mem bership of the committee, it is likely but FEW CHANGES will be made. While it is literally true that not a single schedule has" been finally passed upon by the full commit tee, it is none the less true that the entire bill, subdivided as it is among subcommittees, is now nearly com pleted. While it is generally accepted tiiat wool, coal, iron ore, lumber and salt are to be added to the free list, as weli as various other minor articles. Chairman Wilson and his colleagues have pursued the prudent policy of keeping the details of the reductions on manufactured articles a close secret from the public. In this way, although it is practically certain that the tariff bill in its entirety will be announced to the public in ten days or two weeks, the details of the measure will not be gen erally known until after its publication. After the subcommittees have com pleted their labors, the entire bill will be reviewed by the full Democratic membership, and as soon as finally* ap proved will be handed to the clerk of the house, and at once announced to the public as introduced. The protests against the free lists are still coining in, tie most emphatic ones now being from the iron ore and coal men. A telegram has been received. from the Alabama people who desire to be heard, and Chairman Wilson and ins colleagues have consented to give an informal hearing to these gentlemen any time this week. This delegation will include a committee from the iron and coal interests of Birmingham, the chief manufacturing city of the South, aud it is possible that Senator Pugh and Congressman Wheeler may also accom pany the delegation when it makes its argument. THE PROTESTS of the whisky men do not seem to be attracting much attention. Congress man Montgomery, of Kentucky, the great whisky-producing state, isa mem ber of the committee on ways aud means, and says: "1 think that in my state the objection to raising the whisky tax is coming from the distillers, rather than the consumers. Even the distillers are not making much of a protest, though, of course, they would prefer not to have the tax in creased. The consumers are not making any objection, and, if they do so at all, will probably not do it until after the law is passed." Oue of the hitches which have oc curred iv making the tariff bill, and which has not yet been settled, is the disposition of the sugar schedule. It is .said that, as the bill now stands, it re moves the bounty and does not restore any duty whatever. The opponents of* this plan have pointed out that such a bill will certainly cause the loss of support by the "majority of the Louisiana delegation in. the house, and the bill would bealso endan gered by reason of withdrawal of ' sun port by the Louisiana senators when the billteaqhed the senate. A member of the majority of the committee on ways and means has suggested this to the other members, but received a reply that the biil -cannot be made to suit all sections. * Another rumor is In circulation in the shape of a statement, attributed to Chairman Wilson, to the effect that -he \ \ / %j1m ?^-^.h^H F B^h And iB~r \ [ R6LDUPI: HftLtJVI^^i- I V^// 1 J III /I THE MINNEAPOLIS OFFICERS ACT ON POINTERS WHILE THE ST.

This suggestion, and in fact all suggestions that point to an in crease in internal revenue taxes, meets with a great deal of opposition, espe cially from the South, from which the ways and means committee expects to get the necessary votes to pass the tariff bill., - ' NICARAGUA CANAL.

Paris, Nov. 14.— Lauthier, the man who attacked ana wounded the Servian minister Georgevics yesterday in a cafe, says that he wished" to avenge society, and, seeing a well-dressed gentleman seated at a table, he attacked him. The doctors now fear that serious complica* tions will result from the wound of M. Georgevics, owing to the heavy loss of blood and tbe fact that the minister's nerves were paralyzed by the shock. Luthier, the min ister's assailant, had been in the .res taurant two hours before the assault was made. He had dined weir, and Had washed his meal down with champagne. When he had finished he did not offer to pay his bill, but remained in his chair, gazing vacautly aud leaning his e-bow on the table. His queer behavior attracted the attention of the people in the place. Upon seeing that George vies rise Lauthier stooped as if to tie his bootlaces, then suddenly drew him self up and made a lunge at tne minister, who exclaimed: "W'nat is it." "1 do not know him.'' He then" felt in his pockets, supposing that he had been robbed, and found that blood waa spurting- from a wound in his side an inch long and nearly an inch deep. The weapon used by his assailant had en countered a rib, and this fact probably saved the minister's . life. Lauthier escaped from the cafe in the confusion, but afterward surrendered to the police. The peopie in whose house he had been living ana his friends gave him a good character, but say that they have noticed that he has been in depressed spirits of late. MELLO VERY ANGRY.
