from Honolulu np to November 11, the
date the Australia sailed, say President
Dole received United States Minister
Allien 8. Willis on the 6th Inst. Mr.
Willis accompanied the presentation of
his letter of credence with a brief address,
of which the following are the most im
portant expressions :
"Aside from the geographical prox
imity and consequent preponderating
commercial interests which center here,
the present advanced civilization and
christianization of your people, together
with your enlightened codes pof law,
stand today beneficent monuments of
American zeal, courage and Intelligence.
It is not surprising, therefore, that the
United States was the first to recognize
tbe independence of the Hawaiian is
lauds and to welcome them into the
great family of free, equal and sovereign
nations, nor is it surprising that this
historic tie has been strengthened from
year to year by Important mutual recip
rocities and agreement alike honorable
and advantageous to both governments.
Invoking that spirit of peace, friendship
and hospitality which has ever been
the shield and sword of this country, I
now, on behalf of the United States of
America, tender to your people the right

A TALK WITH WILLIS.
Before the departure of the Australia,
Minister Willis was interviewed at
length. He said there was no political
significance attached to the arrival of
Admiral Irwin eo far as he knew.
When he left Washington nothing was
known of a change, and, as a matter of
fact, the admiral had arrived under
sealed orders in cipher. From what
Captain Barker, of the Pennsylvania,
had said to him soon after the admiral
arrived, by the China, he was inclined
to the belief that Admiral Skerrett had
been recalled in a similar manner. In
seakingof his mission here, Mr. Willis
declared his instructions would not be
known until officially handed to the
provisional government. He added :
"I will say this much, that there is
absolutely no foundation for the various
rumors afloat since my arrival as to what
I am empowered to do or not to do.
There are only two or three men, even
In Washington, who know what my in
structions are. I must positively decline
at present to state whether I carry an
ultimatum or a new treaty, or what."

those who were disappointed at the ap

cruiser so far were revived when word
was passed around to look out for a
spurt. It had been agreed beforehand
by those in charge of the running of the
ship that at this point every effort was
to lie made to achieve a record. It
was here that the run during Tuesday's
preliminary spin was made at the rate
of 24.95 knots, and Mr. Cramp wanted
to show what the ship was capable of.
That the Columbia was going faster than
she had ever run before was apparent to
every man on her decks, but when the
eighth and last buoy on the course was
passed at 11 :49:47, and hurried compu
tations showed that the ship had made
the 7.74 knots in 18 minutes and If
seconds, or at the rate of 25.31 knots an
hour, all were slow to believe the atartl

When it was realized that the Columbia
had eclipsed all previous performances J
over a measured course, the men who
participated made extravagant demon

New York, Nov. 20. The Herald's
Washington correspondent telegraphs
as follow: Commissioner Blount's re
port on the Hawaiian question will show
that minister Stevens landed the troops
from the Boston long before there was
any valid excuse for their presence on
Hawaiian soil, and that he declined to
remove them when requested to do so
by the government, who informed him
that the authorities were willing and
able to preserve order and to protect
American interests; that these troops
were stationed across the street from the
government buildings iu which Minister
Stevens knew that revolutionists were
about to read their proclamations, and
that the revolutionist committee relied
upon the American troops to protect
them in this act of rebellion ; that the
minister recognized the provisional gov
ernment according to a preconceived
programme before tbnt government had
obtained possession of the departments
and military power at Honolulu, and
that the military power was surrounded
and the queen surrendered only through
awe of the superior forces of tle United
States. j '
Many depositions by a number of well
known gentlemen ia Honolulu were
taken before Commissioner Blount, in
dicating that Qaeen Liliuokalard sur
rendered her throne and her ministers
resigned because of the landing of the
American troops at Honolulu. In the
deposition of Mr. S. A. Damon, presi
dent of the advisory council of the pro
visional government, he was asked if the
queen was advised by her ministers to
surrender becanse the sympathy of the
United States was with the revolution
iets. He answered :
"I know it was the queen's idea that
Mr. Stevens was in sympathy with this
movement. The queen was reluctant to
sign the abdication, but did so on the
ground that it would all come up for re
view at Washington. I told her so my
self. It was the best terms of settlement
we could gel. I took it to President
Dole, and he received and endorsed it."
