tsw i THUBSTON'8 TALK. If It Were at Any Other Time or Uiider Different Condi tions Passports Would Be Given the Ha waiian Minister Oil Account ot His Criticisms. Interviews With Senators Davis, Cnl ioin and Mitchell On the attaation. WASHINGTON, Nov. ^.—Minister Thurston of Hawaii in not likely to re ceive his passports, although it was said at the state department that there was abundant ground for such action. Were it in any other country, or in this coun try under aay other circumstances, his passports would be issued immediately. It is claimed that his letter is a breach of diplomacy and amply sufficient to warrant this government in immediately severing all relations with the Hawaiian minister. Such action would be taken but for the reason that the American people might not think it was fair play that the right of any man to talk and give his side of a controversy i.s always conceded, and to force Mr. Thunston to leave this country would be considered by the people a di«iosition not to allow the other side a hearing. The department chooses to consider the publication as a statement by Mr. Thurs ton. a vitally interested party in the outcome ot the Hawaiian affair, and not an official statement of the Hawaiian minister. MR. DAVIS ELUCIDATE*. tfce Minnesota Senator Talk* About tlM Hawaiian Muddle. MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 2:1.—The Tribune publishes a long interview with United States Senator Cushman K. Davis on the Hawaiian situation. The distin guished member of the senate committee on foreign relations readily acquiesced, and seating himself in an easy chair, dictated for nearly an hour to the re porter. After giving a history of the islands from the beginning of tTie century, in cluding a former attempt at annexation, up to a year ago Mr. Davis said: "Shortly before the deposition of the queen one year ago, serious questions arose between her and her cabinet, whereupon she attempted to change the constitution of the country in respects thought to be inimical to free constitu tional government. Thereupon some of her white subjects, mostly, if not all, descendants of the early United States colonists, formed a committee of public safety and then a provisional govern ment, and compelled her to sign an act of abdication. The Point of Difference. "Right there a difference of version exists, Mr. Stevens, our minister under the Harrison administration, asserts that he did none of the acts which are charged against him in Mr. Blount's report until the institution of the provisional govern ment had leen fully consummated. "On the other hand, Mr. Blount as serts that, this body of marines was sent ashore as part and parcel of the plot to overthrow the government. Imme diately after the provisional government was established it sent to Washington certain of its representatives with full power to treat for annexation, and the result was a treaty between the United Stat^ and Hawaii, providing for such annexation. This was in the closing months of President Harrison's adminis tration and was under consideration by the senate when Mr. Cleveland was in augurated. One of the first acts of President Cleveland was to withdraw that treaty from the consideration of the senate, sending Mr. Blount to Honolulu to investigate and report, the recall of Mr. Stevens (which was a matter of course upon change of administration), and the appointment of Mr. Willia aa his successor as minister. Conducted With MjrrtWjri "The whole business has been con ducted with a deal of mystery by the present administration. It is only within a day or two that the public has been allowed to know what Mr. Blount did or reported, and does not yet know what Mr. Willis' instructions were or what he has done. If the surmise |is correct that Mr. Willis has been commissioned to interfere with the concerns of Hawaii to such an extent as to change the form of government and reinstate the queen, it is an interference with the affairs of an independent nation without the least shadow of warrant OT any principle of international law. "This was the more so," continued the senator, "because the new government in Hawaii had been recognized by the Harrison administration, and was also distinctly recognized by President ('leve land when he commissioned Mr. Willis as minister, accrediting him to President Dole and to whom Mr. Willis presented his credentials, and from whom he re ceived his recognition as minister. There have been all sorts of rumors that Min ister Willis haw been directed by the present administration to use th'j naval force of the United States to reinstate the queen in case President Dole refuses to dospose himself and his gov ernment in bar favor. This is probably mere newspaper indention. I can not believe, that there is any foundatioa for it. Such an act woull, go far beyuud the unwarrantable interference I rtpoiuui oi, ami would loiiHUintt' Mi act of war by this government upon Hawaii. Such an act by the prarident without the authority of congresa would be a most distinct usurpation of power. The president hag no more authority to de clare war than the governor of Minne sota. The constitution provide* that congress has the pownr to declare war." In closing Mr. Davis thought even an nexation would not be HO many eople suppose. Mitcliel], of Oregon. Senator Mit' hell of Oregon arrived in the city Tuesday, having come direct from Sun Fraucisco. He was asked by an Associated Press reporter to express his pini n concerning the attitude of the |*f»p of th«* Pacific- coast towards the Hawairui question. "I have tailed," he replied, "with a great many peo le in .Sun Francisco and at other ]ioint,« mi the Pacific coast, and can say that th" general sentiment in that part the countr is very decisive and emphatic in opposition of what the I**opl" there seem to understand to be the i*lie\ of the administration and vheir understanding when I left there w as that this policy looked to an overthrow of the existing government and the re-establishment of the queen." An to linpt'Mcliuutnt Talk, Being asked whether the sentiment in favor of impeachment of the president, as expressed bv some of the San Fran cisco paj^ers, was sliared by the people of the coast generally, Mr. Mitchell re plied: "It is true some of the papers have made this suggestion, but that is a mat ter 1 am not at liberty to refer to, as in cases of imjeaehment the senate is the jury, and it would le manifestly out of place for a member of that lody to dis cuss the question." The senator did not, however, hesitate at saying that he believed that the senti ment of the Pacific coast was that the present gevernment of the Sandwich islands ought to be .fat akxle by the United States. A ItecogntjUMl GoVermiieiit. "It is," said he, "to say the least, a government in fact, which has been rec ognized, not alone by our government, but nearly every civilized government of the earth, certainly by every govern ment having a representative in Hawaii. Mr. Willis has been accredited to this government by the president. If, then, we are correct in the impression which we are justified in entertaining. Mr. Willis is instructed to use the influence of this government, either diplomatic ally through peaceful instrumentalities alone, or by means of a naval demon stration on the part of the United States to overthrow the government to which he is accredited. If, 1 say, this view of the case is correct, it presents an anom aly in diplomacy. It presents, I think I am safe in saying, a case heretofore un known in the annals of international courtesy. Might Be Better Employed. There would be as much consistency in instructions to our minister to Frande to investigate the means by which the present form of government in that coun try was inaugurated or the present ad ministration installed, and to attempt to overthrow it and restore the Bourbons or Bonapartists to power as there is in our effort to rethrone Queen Liliuoko lani. Really it is ridiculous and would be laughnble, if not a matter of state importance. If the way were clear and unobstructed, it seems to me that our government might be engaged in bettor business than in an attempt to boost back on the throne the deposed queen of tbe Sandwich Islands."

WASHINGTON, NOV. 28.—In a brief in terview Senator Cullom expressed tho^ opinion that congress would take up the Hawaiian question in a very vigorous way. He said there would be an early demand for all the reports bearing upon the question. "I can hardly say," .continued the sen ator, "what congress can do, as the treaty has been withdrawn, but there is nothing to prevent a very general ex pression of opinion upon the part of con gress, and if in the meantime it should develop that the queen has lieen restored to her throne by the intervention of the United States, there is no telling what might be done. The country will not tolerate the kingly airs assumed by the present administration. My opinion is that its l»est course is to go into bank ruptcy where, by its policy it has forced so manv good men." SAID TO BE SAFE.

P. Seymour (Baron Alcester) upon the state of the navy. The admiral says that the condition of the navy is inont serious. Twenty million pounds, he says, ought to be expended to build quickly 10 first class men-of-war and as many criyners as possible. He oon demned the practice of building vessels with unarmored ends, and advocated the use of a complete belt at the waterline, on account of the great strength which would thus be given to the rams, which, he Si lid, would be the chief offensive weapon in the future naval warfare. He oomplained of the lack of a sufficient number of trained seamen, and said that the Mediterranean fleet ought to be largely increased and Gibraltar retained at all cost. Will Resume Monday.

Major McKibbin, the officer in charge, at Fort Missoula, says that although Larson, who claims to have seen the Carlin party, states that Carlin and his friends are well supplied to winter in Clearwater country, every effort will be made to find the party. No immediate action, however, will be taken until further advices are received from Gen eral Carlin. Too Early for Farther Search. A member of the rescue party says that it is too early to again make the at tempt, as the snow is too soft for snow shoe travel, the only way in which it is now hoped to reach Carlin and his friends. The idea of relief from the way first chosen lias been abandoned, and all energies are now directed to getting the relief party safely back. Those who went over the summit and into the valley have had such a hard time on account of storms and deep snow that their own lives have been endangered, and they have lost nearly all their animals and it will take hard wftrk to get them out without loss of life.
