Something Startling Brought
GRAVE CHARGES BROUGHT
Against Stevens—Accused of
Entering a Conspiracy to
New York, Nov. 20.—The Times'
Washington special says: Special Com
mistioner and Minister Blount has made
several reports to the state department
on the Hawaiian affair. These have
been printed for the state department in
different volumes, one making up what
is known as the final report, covering all
of his investigations.
The report, however, is even more in
teresting than the final report, and that
is containing his current dispatches, in
forming the state department of the con
dition of things in Hawaii as he learned
it by his inquiries.
This volume of “current” reports
show beyond the shadow oi a doubt that
the revolution in Hawaii in January last
was accomplished only by the most
shameful intervention on the part of
Minister Stevens, then our diplomatic
' representative at Honolulu.
It shows from the testimony of the
members of the provisional government
who took part in the overthrow of the
queen that this revolution was accom
plished as a result of a conspiracy which
they had formed, with the assistance of
Minister Stevens, and in which he, as
the representative of the United States,
bore a most conspicuous part.
It shows that but for Minister Stevens’
abuse of his power, the revolution could
not have been accomplished, and that
his position and the presence of the ma
rines and machine guns from the Boston,
overawed the queen and her supporters
and that nothing else but the interven
tion of the United States in this matter
would have induced the queen to yield,
which she d’d, with the express under
standing, accepted by President Dole, cf
the provisional government; that the
■case was to be reviewed at Washington
and justice done her by the president oi
the United States.
Commissioner Blount’s report will
show further that Stevens landed troops
from the Boston long before there was
any valid excuse for their presence on
Hawaiian 'soil; that he declined to re
move them when required to do so bv
the government, and when informed that
the authorities were willing and fully
able to preserve order and protect Amer
ican interests; that these troops were
stationed across the strest from the gov
erament building, in which Minister
Stevens knew the revolutionists were
about to read their. proclamation, and
that the revolutionist committee relied
upon American troops to protect them
in this act of rebellion; that Minister
Stevens recognized the provisional gov
ernmex. according to a preconceived
programme, before that government had
obtained possession of departments and
military power at Honolulu, and that
the military power was surrendered as
the queen surrendered—only through
fear of the superior force of the United
Peck Providing For the Poor.
Milwaukee, Nov. 20.—Governor Peck
has taken official notice of the situation
among the starving miners at Hurley
. and will this week issue a call to the
people of Wisconsin for food and cloth
ing to relieve the distress. The governor
insists that Wisconsin is amply able to
provide for its poor, and says no one
shall go hungry in the state. ' There are
800 people who need immediate assist
ance and it is probable before winter is
over there will be as many more.

Jug Tavern, Ga., Nov. 20.—There
was an election held in our town Satur

of the people as to whether the town
should be incorporated wet or dry under
the new charter. The election was only
ordered thren days beforehand, and was
not ordered by the council, as adver
tised, therefore many citizens would not
•vote either way. The result was two to
one for wet.

Florida’s Governor Will Not Lot Corbett
and Mitchell Meet in Florida.
Jacksonville, Fla., Nov. 20.—Gov
ernor Mitchell has returned to Tallahas
see from an eight days’ outing on the
gulf coast Regarding the Mitchell-
Corbett fight, he says:
“I had hoped and believed that my in
structions to the sheriff of Duval county
to prevent the fight in Jacksonville
would be sufficient warning to cause the
parties promoting the fight to desist, but
if my information is correct it seems that
I was mistaken. It appears that the

end that Florida shall be disgraced by a
prize fight; but this shall not be done un
til every power of the state is exhausted
in efforts to prevent it, and any officer
whose duty it is to prevent this disgrace
to our civilization and to the state, and
who fails to do his whole duty in the
premises, will be most summarily dealt
“I don’t think the fight will take place
in Florida. I shall issue a proclamation
directing every sheriff to do his utmost
to prevent the fight coming off in this
state and appealing to the people in the
several counties to co-operate with the
sheriffs in saving them and their state
from such a disgrace.”
When asked how he could hope to
prevent the fight when there is no law
forbidding “glove contests” of this sort,
he replied that he would syieak of the
legal aspects of the case later on, but
that now the sheriffs had only their duty
to perform—to obey his orders. The best
lawyers in Florida say that it would ba

“There was an effort made yesterday

Kirkpatrick is a much larger and
more powerful man than Shannahan,

Roport That Pedro Was Made
THE BRAZILIAN MINISTER
Says the Countess d’Eu Must
Abdicate Before Pedro’s
Right of Accession.
Rondon, Nov. 20.—Neither the for
eign office nor the American embassy
here has received any news from Brazil
regarding the proclamation of Prince
Pedro as emperor of Brazil.
The report, however, is much com
mented upon, and confirmation or denial
of the report is anxiously expected. The
news, however, is generally accepted as
being correct, as it comes here from
other sources in addition to the dispatch
The Exchange Telegraph company
says that after Admiral Mello had pro
claimed Prince Pedro as emperor he put
to sea with several of his ships in order
to intercept President Peixoto’s new
transports, which are conveying V ap
plies of men, ammunition and pro\
ions to the existing government at R/,.
It is not believed, however, that the
insurgent admiral is certain of intercept
ing the transports, as the point of de
barkation of the munitions' of war is be
lieved to have been kept a secret.
A dispatch from Lisbon says that the
news of the proclamation of the Prince
Pedro as emperor of Brazil is not yet
confirmed; but. it is added, the report is
generally believed at Lisbon in view of
Admiral Mello’s known strong monarch
A letter just received here by a prom
inent London merchant says: “If Mello
is beaten, it will be a heavy blow to
British prestige. Peixoto is mad with
rage against foreigners, and especially
against the British. Mello is inclined
precisely the other way, and constant
friendly cG'inmunieations are going on
between the Fte.’ifh, Italian and British
warships and Admifaf'Mello, while the
Gent an and the America?! commanders
hold aloof.” <

she has done so. The Brazilian ministSi
has received no news whatever

that he has advices to the .effect that

board the Aquidabau. Rumors, he
added, of an attempt to res,tore the mon
