San Francisco, Nov. 20.—The Uceanlc stef mehip Australia arrived from Hon olulu, bringing a small list of passengers and information that no unusual occur itnce had disturbed the course of affairs at the Hawaiian islands.

He urged upon him therefore to lose no time in preparing for the emergency.

Commission er Blount did his work with great thor oughness. During the five or six months of his stay in Honolulu he worked with a single purpose to ascertain the truth. He secured statements from members of the committee of safety which brought about th.T revolution, from officers of the Boston and from other persons, including the queen, herself.

Some idea of the force of the gale can be gathered from the fpet that two heavy railroad engines were blown off the track near Inverness, Mocking all traffic north and necessitating the despatch of two wreck ing trains to clear the track. The wreck age trains have not since been heard from, so it is supposed that the work has beeu impeded by a fall of snow. Tremendous damage has been done at West Hartlepool by the storm, which will cause much loss and consequent suf fering to the miners of that locality. Considerable anxiety is expressed for the safety of the crews of a hundred fishing boats which we»re last seen being driven northward by the force of the gale. From all parts of Ireland, where there is tele graphic communication,. come reports of the severity of the gale which has been accompanied there by a heavy snow storm.

HISTORICAL KOEL«TY NUMBER 3. ON THE HAWAIIAN AFFAIR lUb BLOUNT'S REPORT GIVBK OUT FOR PUBLICATION. As Previously .Stated Minister Stev en* la Scored tor Him Part In the Hawaiian Revolution—Tlie Minia tMT Replies la.ai Interview. Washington, Nov. 21. Secretary Gresham decided to make public all the correspondence and the report of James II. Blount, the special commissioner sent to Hawaii by President Cleveland to in vestigate the revolution which dethroned Queen Liliuokalani aiid the establishment of the provisional government. Mr. Blount arrived at Honolulu March 20, 1893. In his report he reviews the af fairs in the islands, as noted yesterday. In conclusion he says: "Mr. Stevens consulted freely with the leaders of the revolutionary movement from the evening of the 14th. These disclosed to him all their plans. They feared arrest and punishment. He prom ised them protection. They needed the troops on shore to overawe the queen's aupiorters and government. This he agreed to and did furnish. They had few arms and no trained soldiers. Thoy did not mean to fight. It was arranged be tween them and the American minister that the proclamation dethroning the queen and organizing a provisional gov ernment should be read from the govern ment building and he would follow it with a speedy recognition. All this was to be done with American troops, pro vided with small arms and artillery across a narrow street within a stone's throw. This was done. The leaders of the revolutionary movement would not have undertaken it but for Mr. Stevens' promise to protect them against any danger from the government. But for this their mass meeting would not have been held. But for this no request to land troops would have been made. Had the troops not been landed no measures for the organization of a new govern ment would have been taken. The Ameri can minister and the revolutionary lead ers had determined on annexation to the United States and had agreed on the part each was to act to the very end. The native race feel that a great wrong has been done them and their queen. Her uniform conduct and the prevail ing sentiments amongst the natives point to her belief as well as theirs, that the spirit of justice on the part of the presi dent would restore her crown." That is the only thing in the nature of a recommendation made. Augusta, Me., Nov. 21.—A reportei called on ex-Minister to Hawaii John L. Stevens at his home end asked if he had anything to say regarding Commissioner Blcunt's statement. Mr. Stevens ex pressed great surprise at the language of Mr. Blount. Mr. Stevens says that he feels at liberty to expose Mr. Blount's remarkable conduct toward himself, com mencing immediately after Mr. Blount's arm al in Honolulu. It is a record, Mr. Stevens says, the publication of which will astonish all honorable mindi, bring ing to Mr. Stevens no censure unless it be that he tolerated such Insulting treat ment without at once resenting it by re fusing all ii.tercourse with the offending ptrkon. It is sufficient to say now, Mr. Stevens adds, that Mr. Blount's report so far as given to the public is an ex prrte and shameless perversion of tho facts. TROUBLE IN MEXICO. Cindad Juarez, Mex., Nov. 21.—The re ports of further engagements between the revolutionists and the federal troops have produced much excitement.
