HARKED, PURSEL & VON MAUR, DAVENPORT. IA. Leaders and Promoters of Low Prices. THURSTON'S SAY. Statement of the Hawaiian Min ister in Reply to Blount. OOMMISSIOHEB ASKED HO QUESTIO 18 PrcaMaat Mnru4 njr with the Frew- raMaa ot His iiiiii to Cmrm X Late Kowa front the FnelBe I llano Matters of Moateat About the Nation's Capital. . Washington. .Nov. 20. Lorin, A Thurston, Ilawaiin minister, gave out the statement tonight in reply to the charges contained in Blout's report. He says: "As I have received no ollicial information that Itlount has made a report, I am unable intelligently to state the position and claims of our government. A large Ktrtion of the published extract of Mount's report consists of personal attacks upon me and those associated with me in the provisional government, impugning our veracity, good faith and courage, and charging (is with fraud and du- Idicity. Although in several places Hou nt states that 1 was the leader of the revolutionary movement, he never asked me a question concerning the same, nor a large number of ot her men who took a leading part in the move ment in January. His evidence con sists exclusively f prepared affidavits or answers to leading questions put by himself in private, interviews, no one else iteing present but the stcrnogra pher. A brief examination of the published rejtort shows numerous in correct statements. At no time did Stevens or Capt. Wilts assure me or the committee of safetv, or any sub-com mittee thereof, that TLnited Mates troops would assist in overthrowing the queen or in establishing a provis ional government, and as a matter of fact they did not so assist. in vt undenuurg s statement ne says that when the committee of safety told Stevens that they were 'not ready to act, he replied: "Gentlemen, the troops from the Boston will land at 5 o ciock wnetner your are reaay or noi. He gives a reason for his reply that the troops were landed : to protect American citizens and property, find not to co-operate with the committee, and the committee had no more knowl edge than did the queen's government where the troops were going nor what thev were going to do. The whole gist of framon's long examination was con tained in the statement. When the re quest was made for support from the United Mates troops it was refused by Commander Swineburn sending liack word: '('apt. Wilts orders are: 15e main passive. Itlount charges that but for the sup port of the I'nited Mates representa tive and troops the establishment of the provisional government would have lieen impossible. Although the pres ence of the American troops may have prevented bloodshed, they were not es sential and did not assist in the over throw of the queen. i hurst on then reviews at considera ble lengjh the revolutions of 18K7 and showing practically that ttie same men who now eomjosc the provisional government then, without assistance trom without, overpowered the gov ernment and exacted their own terms in settlement. Continuing, he says: "Under these circumstances 1 submit the burden proof on those who claim that the leaders of the provisional gov ernment are not in itower or that the organization ot the government cannot siiccesst'ullv carrv out a revolution in Hawaii. In replv to the sneer that the iier- sons taking part in the movement were 'aliens. I would sav that every man of them, bv the laws of the country. were legal voters who had the right ot franchise, and. bv the proposed consti tution, would lie abrogated. They were the men who built up the country com mercially, agriculturally, financially and po'lit icallv. and created and made possible the civilized government therein. They were and are such men as today are the leading citizens of the I nited States, with in terests as thoroughly identitied with the interests of Hawaii as are the in terests of native and foreign born citi zens in similar communities in this countrv identified Mith it." Will Take mo Xotlre ef Thuraton. Washington. Nov. 22. It is thought the state department wiil take no notice of Thurston's contra diction of Blount. ficial family. He at once sent Mrs. Husk a telegram of condolence and stated that he would probably, with ex-Attorney tJeneral Miller, attend the funeral. Washington. Xov. 21. President Cleveland spends a large share of his time preparing his annual message to congress. He said the Hawaiian mat ter would be presented in the regular message. The probabilities are that the message will be a long one, owing to the entrance of several subjects to be discussed, not only on the Hawaiian subject, but the tariff. At the state department today it was said the newspapers had given every thing in the Hawaiian matter, except the instructions to V tills. It is stated that the instructions will be made public in Honolulu and come to this country. It is asserted that the in formation received on the Australia was highly satisfactory to the adminis tration and showed just the progress that was expected. The belief is ex pressed that the change is already ac complished, and the next steamer would bring important information that Minister Willis had carried out his instrnctions, and that the restora tion of the queen was complete.

Washington. Xov. 21. Secretary Mor ton, speaking of the late Secretary Husk, said: "I never saw him till I came to Washington last spring. I could not help liking him as was the case with everybody else who knew him. A jovial, large-hearted man he was. I was ined when informed of his death. Judge Hoi man of Indiana said: "Ex Secretary Kusk was as good a man as 1 ever knew. He served two years in congress with me, and there was no better congressman among the new men. lie also made an excellent sec retary of agriculture, coming to the of fice at a iieculiarly fortunate time. His death is a great Kss." The la WaxhlaKton. Washington. Xov. 21. The news of the death of Secretary Kusk was re ceived by his successor, Secretary Mor ton, just as lie left his office to attend the cabinet meeting. He at once or dered the flag over tlie agricultural building at half-mast. The building will not lie closed the day of the fune ral according to custom, on account of an amendment to the last legislative appropriation bill forbidding such action. Fearful Hotel rBasratiaa at Merrill MtaUoa. Pa. Beaver, Fa Xov. 21. At Merrill sta tion, on the Cleveland & Pittsburg road, at 430 this morning, Bradley & Keener's 3-story hotel, in which many men employed on the new dam board ed, burned to the ground. Many jumped from the second and third story windows, and were badly cut, bruised and burned. A census of the boarders after the fire was out showed the following to be missing: JEBRY VREXX. a stone maoo. and son of JOHN KEM.EY. laborer. ROKKRT STANLEY, engineer. .IAMK.H IH'IUIKS. eneilKT. BARNEY WILKES. tooe nutson. Five bodies have been taken from the ruins so badly charred that they cannot be identitied. The bodies of James Hughes and James P. Miller, laborer, have been re covered from the ruins. Both burned to a crisp, making seven recovered. There is a strong suspicion of incen diarism. When the alarm was given the only exit to the fatal stairway was cut off. and the men on the second and third floors woke from a sound sleep liewildered by dense smoke that tilled the building. They ran through the rooms yelling for help, many appear ing at the windows while others climlied out and dropped to the ground through the sheets of flames pouring from the lower windows. Jerry Wrinn, one of the victims, had reached the outside of the buildiug, but. missing his son llan, returned to get oiui. He was suffocated in the attempt and lerished. SCRAMBLE TO HEAR THE GOSPEL Kxrttlng Krene at a Reliction Revival in Iletrnit. iK-troit. Mich.. Xov. 21. A crowd of nearly SUM) men struggled for a half hour'Sunday to secure admission to the Trumbull Avenue 1'resbyterian church, where Rev. Ir. H. W. Chap man and l'etcr Bilihoru t;re conduct ing revival services. The meeting Sunday night was for men only, and in the crash to get into the church hats were mashed and clothing torn. The scene in the meeting was scarcely less exciting than the one outside. Fully aw men from all walks in life pnl- fessed conversion and fully 1.000 more asked to lie remembered in prayer. The scenes are the result of a tre mendous religious revival which began m this city two weeks ago and which is participated in by all the local evan gelistic churches. Meetings are held morning, afternoon and evening in various parts of the city, and at every service the church in which it is held is unable to accommodate all those who come. The entire city seems to be shaken. Lawyers, board of trade men, and merchants as well as labor ing men attend, and it is estimated that fully 2,000 people have been con verted, while at least 10,000 have asked for prayer. A Sew District in r Jnesie Where Mem Make Tweaty Dalian a Dav. Santa Fe, X. M Xov. 21. Within a stone's throw of the town of Dolores, South Santa county, there has been un earthed a new placer district this week where 125 men are now at work, some of them cleaning up $20 a day in nug get gold. At this point bed rock curls up to within trom 3 to iu reel of the surface, and the top earth is stripped off revealing the gold in quantities well calculated to make a furor. A nugget worth 94 was found on Tuesday, and on Wednesday a shining! bit worth 82.90 was taken out. Mr. Wilson showed several nuggets worth probably 25 cents to 35 cents each. There are some thirty fanning machines, known as dry washers and worked by hand power, in the new district, and they are doing well About one-half of the men engaged there are natives. Day before yesterday a thrifty fellow crawled out of a hole with two buckets of sand and gravel, and be offered them to a Col orado miner who stood near for S10. The Coloradoau laughed at the Mexi can, and the Mexican put the two buckets of stuff through his fanning machine and scraped out fully 820 worth of gold and nuggets. MiMwnri Odd Fellow. St. Louis, Xov. 21. The annual ses sion of the grand encampment of Odd Fellows met here this morning, with a good attendance. Reports of the ex-, ecutive oOicers show the order to be in a flourishing condition. The net in crease in membership in 1W2 was over fifty thousand, and was unprecedented in the history of the order.

At daybreak Monday morning hundreds of men were seen going toward the Illinois steel mills in this city for the first time in 11 months. About fifteen hundred men huddled together at the front gate at the mill and around the general of fices and gateman's lodge and inside. However, all was bustle, showing that a certain contingent had been at work several hours previous. At 6 o'clock prompt the whistle sounded its hoarse or ders for appearance for work.
