OPINIONS SOMEWHAT DIVERSE
How the lueen'ti Government Fell to
Pieces The Opinion of a
Honolulu, Feb. 13. The all-absorbing
topic of discussion in Hawaii at the
present writing ia the question of what
has been done by the commissioners
headed by L. A. Thurston, who were
sent to Washington by the provisional
government at the time of the dethron
ing of Queen Llliuofcalani to treat for
the annexation of these islands to the
United States, and what has been ac
complished on the other hand by Paul
Neumann and Prince David, who went
on in the interest of the deposed queen.
Opinions as to the course that will be
takeu by the I'uited States in the mat
ter are as diverse as the many factors in
Hawaiian politics. It may be stated as
a general proposition, however, that
American and German interests in
Hawaii strongly urge upon the govern
ment at V ashington the necessity of
protecting the business interests, at
least, of the islands by annexing them.
Native Hawaiiaus are divided on the
proposition, on one side being an innate
love for royalty, affection for Princess
Kainulani, now being educated in Eng
land, and pritle in the unlive institu
tions. ' On the other side, a desire for
preater proeierity and greater eufran
chidoment which would follow the in
narration of republican rule as one of
the American states.
"The queen's government," said Min
ister Jones, "fell to pieces through sheer
weight of its corruption." It is not
known who drew up the new constitu
tion which the queen sought to promul
gate, but it is stated that she proposed
therein. to disfranchise the white resi
dents of the islands, that she proposed
to abolish the present system of electing
nobles on property qualifications, sub
stituting therefor her own power of ap
pointment, and that she proposed to
have the supreme court composed prin
cipally of Ilawaiians subservient to her
will. The original draft Minister Jouea
stated he believed to have been de
stroyed, for, though strenuous efforts
have been made to find this constitu
tion, none but the old ministry had seen
Governor Pennoyer has just received
the following from Geo. W. Barnes, of
rrineville, which tells its own story:
"Hon. Sylvester Pennoyer: Snow
blockades have almost isolated us this
winter, but it chinooked long enough
the other day to open a passage for the
news that Oregon's cranky governor had
vetoed the world's fair appropriation bill
and we want to reach across the snow
drifts and shake. During the last five
or six years nine-tenths of the boy
babies born in this county were named
Sylvester Pennoyer. When we came to
the fork of the roads and you refused to
go on with the democratic procession,
but poked off in a by path all to your
self, we seriously thought of petitioning
the legislature to pass a general bill
changing the names of our boy babies,
but it is all right now, Sylvester Pen
noyer, Brown, Jones, Smith, or what
ever else It may be goes. Darn your
political gumption, but hurrah for your
business sense!" -

Washington, March 6. In an opinion
delivered by Justice Blatchford, for
Chief Justice Fuller, In the case of
George A. Pattibone and other striking
CVur d'Alene miners in Idaho against
the United States, the court decided In

the indictments against them be

The Oregon State School Journal has
been purchased by parties who are or
ganizing a stock company. Its name
has been changed to the Western Peda-1
gogue, the state school journal of Ore
gon. C. Elton Blanchard, a teacher
well known on the coast, has occupied
the editorship, and the prospects for the
paper are better than they ever nave
been before. Mr. Blanchard Is an edu
cator and writer of long experience, and
has called to his support some of the
best educational writers. The new or
ganization has plenty of capital to push
the enterprise to a success never before
attained. The paper should and will,
without the least doubt, receive the
hearty support of teachers and school
omcials of the state. I nder these cir
cumstances the organ will serve the
school public to a valuable advantage.
Hawaiian l onimlui onora Kocolvo a Bat-
New Yohk, March 7. -A morning
paper says: "Tito intimation that
Cleveland may appoint a commission to
visit Hawaii before acting on the annex
ation question has caused a chill to run
up the backs of the Hawaiian commis
sioners. They hoped for something bet
ter. If the annexation scheme failed to
receive the approval of the new admin
istration, they hoped at least to be able
to return to the provisional government
and say that the United States would
be willing to negotiate for the assump
tion of a protectorate over the islands.
The appointment of a commission, they
realize, would not only occasion a delay
in the settlement of the important ques
tion, but would deprive them of any
honors or profits connected with the
negotiations. They therefore are loth to
believe the rumor current that the new
administration is talking of appointing
a commission to visit the islands, with
authority to treat with the provisional
government upon a plan giving Ameri
can supremacy over the Islands without
incurring all the responsibilities accom

Paris, March 7. News of a hurricane
at Tamatav, on the cast coast of Mada
gascar, February 22, has been received
today. The wind came from the sea and
first struck' the vessel near the mouth of
the bay. The Alsliuo, a French ship,
was stripped almost instantly of masts
and rigging, and a few minutes later
went to the bottom with all on board.
Five coasting vessels, anchored within
the harbor, foundered almost simul
taneously, and but 10 men of their crow
were saved. Four other coasters sank
before tho storm passed. In Tamatav
the streets were swept clean of people
aud vehicles in a few uiluutes. Twenty
two of the best buildings in the place
and a large -number of huts were
wrecked. The roof of the custom-house
was carried away and the walls were
crushed in. The British consulate was
demolished aud four sugar factories
were leveled to the ground. Many lives
and that we will have a dally line. I
believe the business travel of Minnesota
and both Dakotas aud from farther west
will go east and west on these boats
whenever the season of tipen water per
mits theut to do so. We should carry
our share of ordinary, every-day busi
ness travel. When the traveler U weary
from a long railroad Journey from the
Pacific he will bo delighted and refreshed
to take the trip down the lukes. When
these vessels are done an easterner can
put f 100 in his pocket and come to Min
nesota and fish or shoot tor aloitt two
weeks and return home with some of

Valparaiso, March 6. The victories
ol the federal party in Itio Grande do
Sul, Brazil, are reported less frequently
now and the truth ia gradually coming
to light. The seizure two weeks ago of a
ship laden with arms and ammunition
for the federals by the Uruguayan au
thorities, has so crippled the revolution
ists that they have not been able to take
advantage of their earlier successes. The
federal army, encamped outside of Santa
Ana, has been compelled to retire quietly
because it has not ammunition and can
not take the Costilihista.' stronghold.
Meanwhile the Castllihistas are con
centrating a large force at Bage and
General Tavarez is leading the federal
army forward to attack them. If he is
successful in this movement against
Bage, he will turn his army back and
reinforce the liesieging forces at Santa
Ana. General Saralva with 1,000 men
is marching against San Gabriel, where
the Castilhistas have entrenched a strong
force, General Tello left Porto Allegro
yesterday for Pelotoa, and from there
will proceed to San Gabriel to assume
the command of the government army.
He will be in command when General
fcaraiva'a army begins to attack, and a
hot engagement may be expected. It la
reported that ia an engagement near
J-an Borja, the federal forces were de
feated, and that their commander, Col.
Simon, was killed.

Kingston, Jamaica, March 7. Con
firmation of the report that the troubles
of President Henreaux, of San Domingo,
were increasing was brought here by Dr.
Theick, a prominent man in the repub
lic, who managed to escape while the
soldiers, who were sent to surround his
house and arrest him, were slaying his
wife and servants. The story brought
by Dr. Theick is that President Ilen-
reaox has been uneasy ever since the
discovery of the Marchenas plot to over
throw him, and has regarded with sus
picion all the reputed friends of that
arch-schemer. Those who know the
president and his methods of dealing
with real and supposed enemies have
been expecting for some time that he
would strike a blow which he hoped
would crush the opposition and put an
end to the plots against him. A few
days ago President Ileureaux delivered
what he announced was a conspiracy
against him, with which many leading
men of the Domingan capital were
alleged to be connected. President
Ileureaux ordered that all the leaders
be arrested and shot. Soldiers were
tent to surround the residences of all
the suspected persons. Dr. Theick's
bouse was one of the first visited. When
the soldiers appeared he knew their
visit meant death to himself, and be
hastened preparations to escape. The
soldiers opened fire and riddled Mrs.
Theick and the servants with bullets.
The doctor leaped from a window,
mounted a horse and fled. He made
his way to Cape Hayti and sailed to
Kingston, reaching here in safety. His
own departure was so hurried that he
did not learn the fate of the other men
whom Ileureaux had sentenced to death.

The vacancies are one each in Mon

Should the republicans eventually fill all

then all vote with the republicans (an
unlikely supposition,) the senate would

Atlanta, Ga., March 7. The Atlanta
Journal comes out with theexplanations
of the new policy ahead of the country.
In a leading telegram from Washington,
signed by Hoke Smith's editor, Uichurd
son, there Is a warning served upon the
office-seeking brigade as follows: "One
thing is certain, appointments will not
bo speedily made. This Is necessary lie-
cause of the great number of applica
tions and the clash of influences." This
news is backed up by an editorial, in
which it Is stated that "on the question
of civil service Cleveland is even more
explicit than ho has ever been before.
His declaration that 'appointments to
office, instead of being the rewurd.1 of
personal activity, should go to those
whose efficiency promises a fair return
of work for the compensation paid them,'
is cited as a fair warning to the pie
brigade. This is going to be a business
administration, and not a huge partisan
machine." Prominence is also given to
the fact that the president has served a
distinct nnd emphatic notice that he
would hammer with his veto every free
silver bill that congress might pass and
there will be the crucial test of the ad
ministration. Having thus interpreted
the presidential mind upon tho question
of office-seeking and the establishment
of a gold standard, editorial declaration
is made that tariff reform will be in
definitely postponed. The reasons
therefor are stated as follows: "There
are serious iuiedimente to a speedy re
alization of the full measure of tariff re
form. The finances of the government
are in a precarious condition, to say the
least. The Harrison administration has
had to avail itself of funds, always pre
viously held as reserves, to enable it to
make both ends meet, or show a favor
able balance in its financial statements.
Whether this was legally and properly
done or not, it was done as a measure of
necessity. The question then arises:
Are the revenues of the government now
sufficient to meet the expenses imposed
by republican extravagance? This
question must be settled before a de
cisive measure of tariff reform, that may
be undertaken at this time, can be de
termined. Then there arecomplicalions
arising from several reciprocity treaties
already entered into. It remains to be
seen to what extent they will reduce the
revenue and whether the benefit to the
people derived from them will be suf
ficient to justify a continuance or exten
sion of the policy."

Dulith, March 7. The following is
an extract from the speech of President
James J. Hill, of the Great Northern
Railway, at the Duluth dinner :
"We are building, and good progress
has been made on two steamers to carry
passengers between here and Buffalo.
We contemplate carrying 350 first-class
passengers on each. We are putting on
these steamers more power than was on
the Great Eastern when she was built.
We expect to make the run between
here and Buffalo comfortably in fifty

an experiment, but have remarked that
most of my experiments turn out well.
I confess up to the middle of November

I could not find in the country, or out of
it, for some time, anyone who was pre
pared to give us the power we desired to
put on a ship of that size.
"These new vessel, will have speed
enough to run around the Teutonic or
any .other steamship plying between
Europe and America in any six hours of
the twenty-four. I believe the distance
from here to the Soo will be made in
seventeen hour.. When we bring them
here I have been wondering where we
will land them. A ship 385 feet long i.
