day was the state bank bill by Mr. Calvin.
Them tier comes up under a substitute
for the original bill.
Everybody knew that Mel was loaded
for an artack on the democratic party,
and he was one of the first speakers in
the measure. His speech was in manu
script and consisted principally of an
attack on the bill, which be said be con
sidered unwise, unjust and worse than
' Ths bill was taken up by Lections, and
iu the second section Branch sprang bis
speech. The point was raised that he
mustcirfine himself to the discussion
’of the sec ion under consideration, and
tha clnir sustained the point of order,
but by unanimous consent he was allowed
to driver his speeches ,as written our.
Now, Mel seems to have hard luck.
Every time he spesks the first member to
pall him down is the gentleman from
Liberty. That was the cas today. The

New York, Nov. 14.—The demand

WILL THERE BE WAR
Willis Has Been Ordered to
Restore the Queen,
SEVERE CRITICISM HEARD.
One Senator Says the Presi
dent Has Openly Violated
Washington, No. 14.—There is no
longer any doubt in the minds of public
men here that Minister Willis has been
instructed to restore the monarchy in the
Hawaiian Islands, by force if necessary
and without regard to the consequences.
Secretary Gresham is confident that the
restoration can be effected without
bloodshed and even without serious op
position. This view of the case the
secretary is known to have urged upon
the president. The president, however,
has not attached much weight to this con
sideration. He has examined the whole
affair with that painstaking diligence
that characterizes everything he does,
and after satisfying himself that Secre
tary Gresham’s recommendations are
based upon truth and justice he has sent
Minister Willis to the Hawaiian Islands
to carry them out. The question of the
possible consequences of using force to
restore the queen has never moved him;
he has decided that the government of
the United States rather than the Cleve
land administration, owes ic to itself, as
well as to a weak but friendly neighbor
ing power, to mete cut exact justice and
thus right a wrong that, in his opinion,
would stain his own administration
quite as much as that of his predeces
vi ere it permitted to go uncorrected.
He Is Supported by the Cabinet.
It can be said on the authority that
the president has had tho hearty support
of his cabinet in the formulation of Min
ister Willis’ instructions. There is prob
ably good basis for the reports that when
Secretary Gresham first urged his view
of the case upon the president. Secretary
Lamont and Attorney General Olney
doubted the wisdom of carrying out
such a policy. They are said to have
maintained that whatever wrongs might
have been committed by the Harrison
administration they squid not lie laid at
the door of the present regime; while,
on the other hand, by reason of repeated
recognition, but more especially on ac
count of the long delay of the adniinis
tion in acting upon the request of the
provisional government for annexation,
the islanders had been led to believe
that under no circumstances would the
queen be restored, and they had there
fore settled down to the new order of
things with confidence that it would be
permanent. The president’s reply to all
this was brief. He simply said that the
delay was necessary to get at the facts,
and these having been ascertained it
only remained for this government to
do its duty.
Secretary Herbert’s loyalty to the pres
ident has been most gratifying to him.
Surrounded by scores of ambitious naval
officers, who have waited eagerly for the
annexation of the islands, and who have
taken an almost personal pride in the
action of Captain Wiltse in landing the
from the Boston, he has stood
■HBMidiis chief in the policy
a stern rebuke to
Lu reiterate trim me American troops
took no part in the moveihent, and
that the revolution was initiated by
the late queen and forced upon the peo
ple of Hawaii, who, in self-defense took
action terminating in a condition of af
fairs menacing to life and property, and
which was no longer tolerable.
“The claim of the provisional govern
ment is that, regardless of the method of
how it got there, it is today the only
government in Hawaii, recognized as
such at home and abroad, an I that any
attempt to forcibly overturn i&by a for
eign power is in the nature of war
against a friendly government, which, as
I understand, requires the consent of
congress. lam not informed that the
president is recommended to arrogate
any such power to himself, and he has
no right to assume it.
“The monarchy cannot be restored
except through this force from without,
and if that supporting force is with
drawn it will be forthwith overthrown.
There will be no safety for those who
have supported the provisional govern
ment if the queen is restored, and if the
attempt is made I fear that the results
will be of the gravest character. I be
lieve that bloodshed will be the inevita
ble result, and Americans, American
property and agricultural interests will
be the greatest sufferers.

San Francisco, Nov. 14.—Hawaiian
Consul Wilder was disagreeably sur
prised the other day, when lie presented
a draft drawn on the provisional gov
ernment at a bank and the bank refuse!!
to honor it. It was explained to him by
the bank officials that they did not know
what might happen to Honolulu in view
of this government’s action, and they
did not care to take any risks. Hereto
fore the drafts on the provisional gov
ernment have been paid without ques
tion. It is said m?rchants here are un
easy about the situation, and that they

HONDURAS IS SORRY.
And the Apology Is Perfectly Satisfactory
to Your Uncle Sam.
Washington, Nov. 14.—Honduras has
apologized for the firing upon the Amer

refused to surrender ajpasseugiT ntuheiT
Bonilla, who was wanted by the Hondu
Minister Young, acting under Secre
tary Gresham’s directions, called on
President Vasquez, of Honduras, and
presented this government’s demand for
an apology. President Vasquez has
placed Colonel Velella, who ordered the
firing under arrest, and stated that the
incident resulted from a misunderstand
ing. Secretary Gresham give out the
“When authentic information was re
ceived at the state department of the
firing upon the American mail steamer
Costa Rica at Amapala on the 6th inst.,
because of the refusal of the captain to
deliver up Bonilla, a passenger. Gen
eral Young, the United States minister
to Honduras, under instructions sent by
Secretary Gresham by direction of -the
president, protested against the act and
demanded an apology. The government
of Honduras promptly disavowed the
conduct of its c-ficers and expressed sin
cere regret for the occurrence.”
The apology on the part of the Hondu
ras government is entirely satisfactory
to the United States, and it is believed
that this will end the incident.

Washington, Nov. 14.—A story was
spread broadcast which seems to have
had its origin in gossip at the Metropoli
tan club, in this city, that there were
strong dissensions in the cabinet on the
The rumor was definite as to the cab
inet officers who were not in accord with
the administration, and named Secreta
ries Hoke Smith and Morton. It stated
that they had tendered their resignations
at the last cabinet meeting, or would do
so at the next one.
Secretary Morton was seen and gave
an absolute denial to the rumor stating
that he had not resigned and that he had
never thought of doing so. It can be
further said that Secretary Morton is in
accord with the president on his Haw
aiian policy and that Secretary Hoke
Smith has not in any manner given pub
lic expression to disagreement or given
reason to suppose that he entertains an
opinion differing from those of the presi
dent on the matter.

Jerry MeCauly mission of New York.
The movement has been started, and
some liberal offers of financial backing
have been tendered for the enterprise.

Peck’s bondsmen have deposited $2,000

Cannot Be Extradited.
Washington, Nov. 14.—Adrian Van

there. There is no clause in our extra

to Solicitor Dabney, of the state depart
ment, covering the specific crime with
which he is charged. Mr. Dabney says
this opinion is an off-hand one, aud does
not want to be placed in the attitude of
prejudging the case.
