In order that the city of Seattle may
maintain her dignity among the other
cities, two young men, by the unmet ol
Johusou sod Levere, began the publica
tion of "Sunday Mercury," about
three months ago, and the articles there-
in contained have not been roach
noticed, other than receiving the "nlet
condemnation of the respectable ci i iie,
nntil laat Saturday, one John W. Cuiisa
dine, proprietor of the People's Theater,
and one of the theater's attaches,
called at the Merenry office and pro
ceeded to punish the editors for calling
the theater "a branch of hell." Several
allots were eichanged and the People's
Theater attache received a bnllet in bis
shoulder, while one of the editors of the
paper received each a beating with the
butt of Considine's revolver that it is
thought he will die. The eople, while
. not in sympathy with the fwper, are
not at all in sympathy with the mode of
The Yesler will case is yet in progress
and It is hoped that the preliminary ex
amination will soon reach a termination.
The defence haa argued for uon-suit,
and unless same is granted, evideuce on
behalf of the defendant will be intro-
dnced, which will take another week.
The weather haa been beautiful for
the last three or four days, rain having
fallen instead of suow. The great fall of
snow has not been equalled ia thirteen
years, but most of it has disappeared.
The side show at Olympia, in which
they are trying to elect a Unitd Bute
senator, seems to keep up the interest
of the people without much effort. It
is believed that a man whose name it
not yet Iwfore the legislature will be the
ultimate choice for United States sena
tor. Tit democrats are ia hopes of
cansiug a deadlock and having the legis
lature adjourn without sleeting a United
States senator, in which event the gov
ernor will appoint Mr. Allen's successor,
who will hold the office until the nnt
legislature, at which time toe demo
crat hope to have sufficient streugbt to

Washinotoh, Eeb. 16. The treaty of
annexation concluded between Secretary
of State Foster and the commissioners
f the provisional government of Hawaii
was transmitted to the senate yesterday,
but was not made public.
The message of the president was
brief. It stated that it is deemed more
desirable fully to aanst the Islands than
to establish a protectorate. The president
says the overthrow of the monarchy was
not in any way prompted by this gov
ernment; that the restoration of Liliuo
kalaui is undesirable, if not impossible :
that unless actively supported by the
United Btates restoration would be ac
companied by serious disaster and the
disorganisation of all business Interests,
lie further says: "It Is essential that
none of the great powers shall secure
these islands. Kuoh possession would
not be consistent with our safety, nor
with the peace of the world."
Until congress provides otherwise, the
ealsting government, and laws of the
Hawaiian islands will be continued sub
ject to the paramount authority of the
United Bute. The president is to ap
point a resident commissioner, who
shall have power to veto any act of said
government until congress et) arts' the
necessary legislation, excepting that the
eommerciai relations of the .Hawaiian
islands, both with the United Btates
and foreign governments, shall eonUnue.
The further 4 ni migration of Chinese
into the islands la prohibited, and tbs
Chinese new im the islands shall not be
permitted to come into tliS present ter
ritory of (he United State.

Wamiihoton, Feb. 10. In the senate,

Tofbba, Kan., Feb. 10. The sity is
black and blue today black with people
come to see the fun; bine with troops.
Every train arriving tor the past twelve
hours has brought troops and republi
can and populist volunteers, armed with
all sorts of weapons, antlous to take a
hand in the fight.
The republican house is still besieged
in the representatives hall, and the
force of state militia is still posted
around the capitol. Colonel Hughes
has again declined teobey the governor's
order to eject the republicans, snd ths
only resources the governor has beside
the regular militia are three companies
of populist provisional troops.
The troops sympathise mostly with
the republicans ; so, in spite of the ad
jutant-general's orders not to allow food
to be taken into the capitol, the soldiers
conveniently tail to see well-filled
basket of provisions hauled up to the
representative hall by means of rope
The Wichita battery even went so far
as to bring its galling on the ground
unGt for nse. One very essential part of
its mechanism was removed. The tiap-
tain of the battery seemed greatly sur
prised when his attention was called to
the fact, and called up his men one by
one and questioned them about it. All
denied any knowledge of the circuiu
stance, and the piece still frowns im
potently at the supposedly invading re
There was no sleep for the imprisoned
republicans in representative hall
With the beat shut off, tbey had to or
ganize pedestrian matches and other ex
ercises to keep up circulation of the
blood, At 4 o'clock half a dozen gaso
line stoves were sent up to them by
ropes, and the members gathered around
them to get what warmth tbey fur
The populists planned to assault the
republican stronghold at 3 o'clock this
morning, hoping to take them by sur
Colonel Hughes learned of the plan
and Informed the republicans that they
bad nothing to fear from him. A little
later he wassumrooued to the governor'
office, the plan laid before bim and he
was ordered to carry it out. He posi
tively refused, declaring that he was
there as a peace officer; that the repub
lican house was the only legal oue, and
he would not interfere with it.
The governor threatened to relieve
him. He retorted that the regiment
would disband at the same time.
This piece of - Insubordination, to
gether with the fact that nearly, all the
commanders of the stale troops are re
publicans, about decided the governor
to place no more reliance on the militia.
Among the arrivals todsy were about
400 armed republicans and 100 armed
populists. -" -
Sheriff Wilkerson is swearing in a
posse of 1,000 men, ostensibly to pre
serve the peace, but it is generally be
lieved to support the republican posi
tion. A conflict msy take place when
the posse is put to work.
At 2 p. au. the governor's private sec
retary appeared and submitted a propo
sition in writing from the governor to
withdraw the militia and not allow the
republicans to be interfered with by the
populist if the,epublican would drop
all legal proceeding against the popu
list and if the sheriff would disband his
posse, th agreement to last till the close
of th session of the legislature. The
republican are now considering th
War Is Over.
TorKKa, Feb. 19. The state troops
have been sent horn ; armed posses of
deputy sheriffs have disbanded ; repub
lican and populist hav laid down
their arm and the war 1 over. Devel

sides as a decisive victory for th repub

Carrie Herrick, tho pretty daughter of
8. H. Herrick, the millionaire wine

Hoist, Idaho, Feb. 18. Advices from
the Cuur d'AIen silver and lead min
ing districts of Shoshone county say that
owing to th low prices of silver th
mine will, within m few weeks, be com
pelled to shut down. This will throw
2,000 men out of employment and have
a disastrous effect upon Northern Idaho.
Mine-owners fear that a general closing

Bam Fkakcisco, Feb. 17. The steamer
Belgie arrived this morning via Hono-.
lulu. The provisional government hat,
in great measure, won over tho public
confidence, having amply demonstrated
its ability to cope with tho situation.
On the 21st President Dole and others
paid an official viait to tho Boston. The
Hawaiian flag was run up to tho mast
head and a salute of Slguns fired.
On the 6th inet. martial law was de
clared off by tho provisional govern
ment. Everybody was anxiously await
ing news from tho United States, and
the sentiment in favor of annexation was
steadily growing. Ex-Queen Ltlllluo
kalani is still in retirement at her pri
vate residence, confident that her envoy
to our government will bavo a success
ful mission. Tho U. S. steamer Mohi
can, which sailed from the Mare island
navy yard Jan. 29, was just entering tho
harbor of Honolulu as tho Belglc sailed,
but there was apparently no necessity
for any increase of tho naval force.
Tho new government now haa a vice
president, 8. M. Damon having been
selected by tho executive and advisory
councils. According to President Dole,
the English business interests of tho it!
andt preferred that Kaulilanl should
rule, but they would not object to au
American protectorate back of her.

tors, reo. is. i lie tribune
special from Washington sav Mr
Cleveland Is to signalize his return to
Washington ns president by a striking
social innovation. For the first time
since it was built the white house will
cease to be ths actual residence of the
president and his family, and Mr. Cleve
land will give society there the sensa
tion of teeing hint occupy and maintain
a private nouse iite any otner puDlic
official at tho capital. The president
elect today forwarded an order to a
Washington rest estate agent to lease
for him the house on H street, between
Seventeenth and Eighteenth streets,
owned and occupied for many years by
Admiral Porter, and here Mr. Cleveland
and his family expect to live for at least
several month after hi inauguration
It is said that tho Cleveland are fearful
lest the white house was not completely
fumigated after little Martha Harrison's
recovery from her attack of scarlatina,
and they do not care to take any risks
of contagion with their own daughter.
It ia understood that Mr. Cleveland will
use tho white bouse for office purpose
only, and will establish another real
white house in the H-street home, a few
doors west of the Metropolitan Club.
New York, Feb. 18. President-elect
Cleveland haa about completed his in
augural address, and it will be sub
mitted in a day or two to ex-Secretary
Whitney, Dan Lamont'and, possibly, to
Senator Gorman and one or two other of
Mr. Cleveland's friends. Extra precau
tiona will be taken in order to prevent
the possibility of a leak, and it is proba
ble that typewritten copies of the
original will not be made until the night
before the inauguration ceremony. The
president-elect particularly fear a print
ing-office leak, and so the copies to be
furnished to the press association early
on the morning of .inauguration day will
be type-written, instead of printed. It
is taken for granted that a goodly por
tion of the speech will be devoted to the
question of public credit and tho sil
ver issue, and it ia altogether within
the bounds of probability that the presi
dent will indirectly return the compli
ments paid bim by Senator Hill in the
latter' recent tpeech ia the senate on
the silver repeal bill. Altogether the
friends of tho president look for the
most interesting public paper that haa
been presented to congress for many a

K.O. McCoy, of Walla Walla, recently
addressed to the Grant Dispatch two
letters which will bo of Interest
to settler on tho Northern Pacific
land grant. Tho first is from Harry
Spalding A Son, as follows:
" We find upon a most careful exami
nation of the law relating to th North
ern Pacific grant that the land-offic
had no authority to raise the price of
lands within the grant to $2.60 per acre,
and consequently you were overcharged
$198.75 for your land entry in 1884,
which sura wo can collect for you by
suit in the Court of Claims, if authority
ia given us by power of attorney to file
your claim at once, before it is outlawed
by the statute of limitations. You will
incur no expense or risk by giving us the
power of attorney, at w pay all ex
pense, and as warrant when issued Is
made to your order and cannot be en
dorsed to auy ono but yourself. Our fee
will be 25 per cent, of the amount re
covered. Of course, if wo are unsuccess
ful, which we do not deem possible, you
will bavo nothing to psy either in the
way of expenses or fees. Our contingent
fee of 26 per cent, includes ovsrythlng
you will have to pay in tho event of suc
cess. If you do not bavo description of
land at hand you can leave it out, as
w can ascertain from records there."

is that this member, democrat, whs

in tho interest of A. L. New's candidacy
for the United States senate. Kinie was
very ill after drinking liquor j;iven him

him out of town. One of the physicians
says there was a drug in the whisky.
Kabis introduced evidence in defense,
