TUG President Wittflraws tie Hawaiian
It I I'ndcrstood the Present Treaty
Does Not Suit Him-First Batch
of Appointment.
Wahhinuton, March (.-Cleveland
first executive communication to the
nm thin afternoon, and proved
a urprise not only to republicans, but
to many democrat, in ms communi
cation Cleveland withdrew the treaty
with Hawaii sent to the senate few
-,.-.U-ni?o bv Harrloon. The message
wua fli "'. simply requesting the senate
to tr:i"-nit to the executive the pro
posed tr-a!y with Hawaii. The message
wua received without comment on the
floor of the senate. The republican sen
ators reirnrd this action In a line with
the course pursued by Cleveland in
withdrawing the Nicaragua.!! treaty sent
to the senate by Arthur In the closing
days of hla administration. The dem
ocratic senators look upon the a-' 'rom
twofold points of view, some taL:.i the
irrmiml that it shows Cleveland is against
annexation or American domination of
any sort in the Hawaiian islands, while
others hold lie will send In another treaty
more to his liking.
It is understood the reason for the
withdrawal is because he is opposed to
the treuty in its present form, w lietner
or not he will favor the making of an
other treaty, and whether it will 1 an
annexation treaty or not, cannot he said
on authority at this time, but a gentle
man ho has talked with the president
on the subject said this afternoon that
another treaty would be made. It is
intimated the president will suggest
either by message or personally to the
senators that a committee be appointed
to visit the Hawaiian islands this year
during the Interval between the adjourn
ment of the special session of the senate
and the reconvening of the next con
gress. Cleveland heretofore bus been
quite solicitous on this Kint and made
inquiries as to whether or not resolu
tions providing for such a commission
had gone through. He had apparently
been under the impression that it had
been adopted. He learned It had not
been, but that the senate had authority
alone to provide for such a commission,
probably to consist of senators, and that
the contingent fund of the senate could
be drawn on for the purpose.
Tna f inancial Uatlun.
Wasiiinoton, March 0. Secretary
Carlisle this moruiug authorised the
statement that he would exercise all the
power and discretion invested in him to
uphold the credit of the government and
maintain the parity of gold and silver.
This statement was made to brush away
rumors about what he contemplated
doing as to maintaining the gold reserve
intact, as to issuing bonds or as to lay
ing United States treasury notes in sil
ver when free gold is exhausted, etc.
The example of the leuver banks in of
fering the treasury f 1 .(KtO.lKK) in gold has
been followed by the Chicago bankers,
who today ottered "00,(H0. It is lo
lieved that bunkers of other cities will
do likewise. There is feeling of relief

Saturday are unusually heavy, of which
no information is yet received. The

There is no dungerof a financlul panic.
The new administration will not issue
any bonds. It 1ms boon decided that

the United States treasury. This is in
WinJet conflict to the opinion so often ex
J'resw.i Py former secretaries of the
treasury and Is ruther startling. The
busis of the action is a decision of Solicitor-General
Aldrlch, who declares
that there is nothing in existing laws to
prevent the use of the (fold reserve. Kx-Attorney-lieneral
Miller is understood
to have concurred in this opinion.
What Iiigalli Thinks.
Atciusom, Kan., March 10. Ex-Senator
Ingalls says he is glad to see Presi
dent Cleveland exercise some sense in
regard to the Hawaiian aflair by with
drawing the treaty. He said: "I hope
, that he will keep it In his trousers
pocket. To take In a lot of valueless
islands that he would have to fortify and
worry about would 1. contrary to the
principles and traditions of our govern
ment. The Hawaiian treaty was a great
blunder. Cleveland ought to send a
delegation to Hawaii to ascertain the
nels of the people and to s.w to what
extent the sugar speculators are rcispon
siolo for tho revolution."
Without Sutor.
Ol.YxriA, March 0. At 12 :25 today
Lieutenant-Governor I.uce rapped
sharply on the desk and made the stereo
typed announcement: "The 101st joint
ballot showed the following result, and
further that no election for United States
senator having occurred, this joint con
vention is now dissolved."
The hall was crowded almost to a
point of suffocation, and during roll-call
an almost breathless silence reigned.
There was no change in the 100th ballot,
or anything to distinguish It from a
score of Its predecessors. John B. Allen
and George Turner were answered from
the various portion of the hall with a
degree of vindictive stubbornes that
time ha not softened. In the 101st
ballot Sal lee of King, w ho circulated the
caucus call last evening and wo scored
by a Seattle paper this morning for so
doing, rose when hi name was called
and in vehement manner denounced
the paper In question, and then voted
for Allen. There were no other changes
and the vote resulted Allen 60, Turner,
1, Shaw 15, Van Patten 9, Griggs 8,
Drum 2.
When the result was announced a sigh
of relief, followed by a round of applause,
went np, and the famous deadlock had
tiecome a jrt of the history of the Ever
green state. The senate filed bock to
their chamber and the house resumed
It duties.
Hill's Humiliation and Despair.
Srw Your:, March 9. Commercial
Advertiser's Washington special Hill's
call on Cleveland today, aud the latter's
appointment of Maxwell, tells in two
sentences the humiliation and despair of
the senator humiliation that be i com
pelled to liow to a man who ha con
stantly defeated hlni in and out of his
own state, and despair because his bit
terest political enemy ha been placed
iu a position most likely to work him
the greatest harm. With Maxwell as
the "headsman" of the postoflice de
partment, one of the Hill machines in
New York is doomed.
The l'raldnt-a Visitors.
Washington, March 9. Political cir
cles are agog over the fact that Senator
David 15. Hill spent nearly an hour in
private consultation with President
Clevelaud at the White House this
morning. When Mr. Hill entered the
president's room word was sent that Mr.
Cleveland was very busy and could not
sue anv visitors for some time. The in
terview, of course, was strictly of a pri
vate character, but from the fact it had
been previously arranged and from its
length, there can be little doubt that it
was more than of m mere official-social
character. When Mr. Hill had finished
with tlie president, he lost no time in
leaving the White House.
Want In Washington.
Wabuinoton, March 8. The candi
dates pressing for Washington' places
are: Marshal, F. Thogan, Spokane;
Stephen Judson, of Tacoma, and K. Ma
loney, of Whatcom. - District attorney,
Gilmnn and Sniveley, of Seattle. Col
lector of customs, W. H. Talbots, of
Seattle ; Sanders and Tibbies, of Port
Townsend. Surveyor-general, Warner,

Free Cold on Hand.
Washington, March 9. The treasury
today received gold at several points.
In New York a gain was made of f 100,-
000, while at New Orleans it received
f JO.O(X) in exchange for a like amount of
silver certificates. No intimation has
yet Isjen received that any gold will lie
exported Saturday from New York, and
at the present rate of exchange it is not
thought any will bo taken out of the
country. The treasury has more than
ta.000,000 in free gold, and iu the usunl
conditions of trade this is likely to be
increased rather than decreased. It was
quite plainly intimated in the treasury
department today that, as between the
issue of bonds and tho use of a portion
of the 1100,000,000 gold reserve, if neces
sary to maintain the parity of gold and
silver, Nut-rotary Carlisle will resort to
the latter plan, but he does not antici
pate the necessity will arise to do so.
Treasury OMvlaU Kmlgn.
Washington, March 10. All the
prominent orliciuls of the treasury de

retary, commissioner of Internal rove
nue, comptroller and all the auditors,
except TuUi-rson and Fisher, have verb

The Annie Faaoa Wrecked.
Scokank, March 10. The steamer
Annie Faxon, plying on the Snake river
between Kiparia, Wash., and Lewiston,

Free Silycr Men Will Control the Finance
Revolutionists at Key West Waiting to
Embark Watched by a I'. S.
Revenue Cutter.
Washington, March 10. The Post
publishes the following:
"The work of arranging the senate
committee chairmanships had so far
progressed that nearly all had been se
lected. The most interesting develop
ment is the fact that the free-silver men
propose to run the senate their own way
and are recasting the finance committee
so as to leave no doubt of the stand
which the committee will take npon any
coinage bills before it. The democrats
on the committee up to the 4th of March,
ere Voorhees, McPherson, Harris and
Vance. Voorhees will be chairman.
Harris and Vance are both outspoken
free-silver men and will remain. Mc
Pherson will step aside to take the chair
manship of the committee cn naval af
fairs. Other democrat on the finance
committee will be Coke and Vest, both
avowedly on the free-coinage platform.
It will be seen that no matter what
Cleveland desire the personnel of the
finance committee is such as to make it
almost impossible for him to dominate
the financial policy to be followed by the
senate. All the anti-silver men, such
as Vilas, McPherson and others, have
been purposely kept off the committee.
Morgan will be chairman of the com
mittee on foreign relations, Cockrel of
appropriations, Harris of the District of
Columbia, Gorman of printing. Mills of
library, Palmer of military affairs."
An Expedition to Cuba.
Kit Wxst, Flo., March 10. The
revenue steamer McLane, Captain Lit
tlefield commanding, arrived here on
Wednesday to replenish her coal supply
and to communicate with the authori
ties. The McLane has been cruising
actively between Key West and Cape
Florida for the past week to intercept
the pirate steamer which it is expected
will sail with the filibustering expedi
tion from this port or from some of the
islands between here and Biscayne bay.
The proposed expedition i said to be
under the direction of a prominent Cu
ban leader, General Manuel Marti. It
is reported that at least 250 men are on
the island of Key West, who will go on
the expedition, and it I expected that
at least 100 others from Tampa, Florida,
will join at some remote place known
only to the leaders. These men are all
well drilled and disciplined, and armed
with repeating rifle. No people in the
western world are more patriotic than
ttie Cubans of Key West. They have
set aside a day which they have called
Patriotic day. The earnings of every
Cuban for one day are donated at Pa
triotic day to the cause of Cuba. It goes
without saying that 99 per cent, of the
Americans of this island are in sympa
thy with the Cubans in their struggle
forindejiendence. None of the vigilance
on the part of the United States author
ities at this place ha been relaxed.
The cruiser Atlanta' men are still on
picket duty, forming a perfect cordon
around tho island. The reveuue cutter
McLane will resume her cruising be
tween Key West and Cape Florida to
intercept the filibustering steamer as
soon as eh takes on a supply of fuel.
The Kearsarge sailed today, but for what
point is unknown.
Itussell Haga's Opinion.
Nkw York, March 10. Kussell VV.
Sage said today : "The decision appar
ently arrived at by treasury officials to
use the 100,000,000 reserve is an expedi
ent that will prove a temporary pallia
tive, but will not tend to allay fears in
the monetary question. The cause of
the trouble will not be removed till the
Sherman bill is repealed, and Europe
will not buy our stock and bonds with
any confidence till this measure is en
tirely out of the way.
"I think the election of 8. II. H.
Clark to the presidency of the Missouri
Pacific will be gratifying to everybody
concerned. Hi resignation from the
Union Paciflo doe not mean anything,
because he will still remain a director
in that company, and the relations be
tween the companies will continue
A Canadian Sensation.
Monthkal, March 9. A pamphlet
entitled "Clerical Ruin," which prom
ises to create a great sensation in the
religious world, has been made public
It contains a terribly scathing arraign
ment of the Human Catholic clergy of
the Dominion. The work is from the
pons of a number of well-known French
Canadian riters, among vhom is San
valle, formerly of l a Patrie, and Filia
tramt, of the Canada Review. One of
the articles Is devoted to tho Jesuits;
another, and very sensational one, to
"Mysticism and Chastity," in which
due reference is made to the lato cler
ical scandals.
A Carious lilunder.
Washington, March 9. The board of
lady managers of the world' fair has had
straightened out a curious blunder in
the sundry civil bill by which all the
money Intended for the payment of
awards was appropriated for the oso of
the woman' board instead of the execu
tive committee on awards. The ladies
have agreed to pay this money to the
proper authorities without regard to the
term of the bill. The mistake was due
to an error of the engrossing clerk.
The l'anama Trial.
Pabis, March 9. Interest in the Pana
ma trial is inci easing, and the greatest
curiosity is shown as to coming develop
ments. It is reported that the frankness
with which Charles De Lesseps told his
story has cause1! surprise. There is
some consternation in certain high cir
cles, and considerable anxiety is felt in
the same quarters as to the subsequent
testimony. The approaches to the
Palais de Juetice as well as the court
room were thronged this morning. The
general opinion is that the defendant all
wore a more confident air than on the
previous day, and that they seemed to
feel that their unreserved acknowledge
ment bad made a favorable impression
on the community. Presiding Judge
Defjardins proceeded to interrogate
Marius Fontaine. The latter stated he
was a member of the lioard of manage
ment of the Panama Canal Company
when the transactions with Baihut oc
curred. Acting under the direction of
Charles de Lesseps, he visited Blondin.
He found Baihut there. Baihut said:
"The money in question will be need in
promoting the interests of the company."
Charles de Lesseps thereupon proceeded
to discuss with Blondin the question of
the 1,000,000 franks claimed by Baihut.
The matter was eventually settled at
Fontaine's residence. In reply to the
presiding judge, Fontaine continued;
"Some of the draft payable to bearer
were issued to pay for advertising,
other to satisfy the robber who way
laid us like footpads."
This closed the interrogation of Fon
taine for the time being. Next followed
the great sensation of the day. Baihut
was called. He showed a disposition at
first to throw the blame upon Blondin,
who acted as a go-between in the nego
tiations. Baihut said ; "I acted at the
instigation of Blondin, to whom I gave
7,500,000 francs. 1 have wished to res
tore the money I received, but I feared
thereby to accuse myself." Up to
this moment Baihut bad spoken clearly,
and with apparent self-control. He
broke down, and with a pitiful expres
sion of sorrow and despair exclaimed in
a broken voice : "I acknowledge having
been led astray. I am guilty. My
words express the grief and repen
tance I feel. I do not yet under
stand how I could have fallen so low.
I ask the pardon of my country,
whose good name I have perhaps sul
lied." There was a decided stir in the
court-room when Baihut began his piti
ful avowal of guilt, and this was in
creased to a sensation as he closed.
Sunday Opening Fight.
Chicago, March 9. The endeavor to
secure the opening of the world' fair
Sunday will be transferred from the
state courts to those of the United States.
An attempt will be made to have the
United States supreme court issue an
injunction against restraining the open
ing of the gates. To do this the suit
will have to be brought on behalf of the
state and Attorney Maloney has given
his consent. The grounds of complaint
will be that the corporation is an Illinois
one, and congress has no power to make
the obnoxious restriction.
No Second Term for Offlce-Hcekars.
Washington, March 10. Callers on

Minor Mention.
Boston, Mass., March 11. The threo
greatest fires in Boston's history, those
of 1872, 1889 and 1893, were all rung from
the same box, 52. No change is war
ranted in the estimates of the loss and
insurance sent out last night. Of the
property loss of f 4,550,000, a little over
$1,000,000 is on the buildings and the re
mainder on the stock. This is covered
by an insurance close to $4,000,000.
Firemen searched the ruins all day for
the dead. One additional bodv was
found, that of Henry Turner, aged 18,
who was one of the employes of the
Jaquith Rubbercompany. Lewis Buck,
aged 19, of the same company, is miss
ing. They worked on the fifth floor.
It is also believed that the body of Chas.
O'Diorne, traveling salesman for Red-
path Brothers, is in the ruins. A thor
ough search has been made in tho hos
pital and morgues, but no trace of him
can be found. The persons employed
by Horace, Partridge & Co., in the
building where the fire started, are all
accounted for. It was generally be
lieved the bodies of 12 or 15 of them had
been burled in the ruins.
T. B. Fitz, a member of the firm of
Brown, Durell 5c Co., says the stock
which was not burned is of such a nature
as to be easily injured by water and
smoke, so that they have nothing left
but the insurance. He thinks it will
take $1,200,000 to make them whole.
The damage to the United States hotel
ia placed by the management at $50,000.
A Vacillating Baron.
Nkw York, March 12. Great was the
joy of the enemies of Johann Most today
when it was learned that a real live
baron, who had become an anarchist of
the goriest type and was Moat's right
bower for months, had been expelled
from Most's organization. The expelled
nobleman was the Baron von Barnekon,
who came to this country from Germany
about 18 manths ago with recommenda
tions from Neidringhup. The socialists
received him with open arms and he be
came a writer for the socialist organ,
the Volkszeitung, attacking the anarch
ists and proclaiming socialism an ideal
destiny of humanity. When the baron
had been writing for several months,
Mr. GronBieg, one of the editors, found
several items charged against himself
for dinners and beer in saloons and res
taurants, which he said he could not ac
count for. A little investigation showed,
he says, that the baron had represented
himself as Gronseig and had been feed
ing himself under that name. There
were explanations, recriminations
and oratorical blue fire at this dis
covery, and after a very stormy meeting
the baron was expelled from the social
ist labor party.
He went over to Most and became a
wrirer to Freiheit. I ie outdid Most him
self in his diatribes against socialism,
which he described as a concentration of
the worst evils of capitalism. About a
week ago Most went out to collect some
money for advertisements procured by
the baron. He found, ho says, that the
baron had Wen there before him and
collected the money witoont the formal
ity of accounting for it. This was re
Baking Powder Tests
The United States Official
Investigation of Baking Powders, made by, authority cf
Congress, in the Department of Agriculture Washing
ton, D. C, furnishes the highest authoritative informa
tion as to which powder is the best. The Official Report
Shows the ROYAL to be a
cream of tartar baking pow
der, superior to all others in
leavening power tlu'-
ported to Most's anarchists organization.
Its meeting was the stormiest ever
known In its history. Men capublo of
swearing in four or fivo different
languages exhausted their powers, and
by acclamation it was voted that the
baron would have to get out, which he
did. It is reported that tho I'eukert
group of atomists, who do their dyna
miting as their Individual consciences
move them, want the baron now, uud
will try to show that the whole thing
was a conspiracy to get rid of the baron.
Before Barnecoup went on the Freiheit
he had been trying bis hand at report
ing for the German dailies. To one of
them he sold a story of the arrest of
Most in Newark. It was well written
and devoid of foundation. The baron
now say he was captain of a regiment
of drawgnards in Germany, and lostjin a
single night at gambling 300,000 marks,
which he was unable to pay, so he had
to resign.
Mlaa Ida Bachtold Found Dead In Her
Portland, Or., March 10. Ida Bach
told, the 20-year-old daughter of John
Bach told, proprietor of the William Tell
house, 249 Fifth street, was found dead
in her bed shortly after 1 o'c'oek this
afternoon, having expired very uddenly
and under circumstances surrounded
with the veil of mystery. Mis9 Bachtold
cooked dinner for the hotel last evening,
and retired about 10 o'clock, sleeping
with her younger siHter, Lena. During
the night she gave no evidence of illness,
but this morning she said she felt too ill
to get up. At 7 o'clock she was asleep,
and each time a visit was paid to her
room she was calmly sleeping. About
1 o'clock this afternoon Mrs. Bachtold
went to Ida's room and fonnd her in con
vulsions. Her limbs were drawn rigidly
and her face was almost black.
Dr. Meyer was sent for at once, but
before lie arrived the vital Epark had
been dissipated. The matter was at
once reported to Coroner Holmau, who
removed tho body to the morgue. The
corpBe began to show signs of mortifica
tion before it was cold. It is believed
that death was produced by an overdose
of some powerful drug.
Hon ton Again Flre-Strlcken.
Boston, March 10. One of the most
destructive fires in the history of Boston
broke out soon after 4 o'clock this after
noon, and before it was placed under
control, three hours later, it Jiitd burned
over more than a block, reducing to
ashes several mognillcent buildings re

was burned over 3Sj years ago. The
Ure was attended by scenes of panic and
distress never before equalled here, des
