re of the president in his message,
ilph suid lie could not conceive it pos
e the administration had determined
urn the forcible overthrow of the exist-
Jif government and the restoration of a

ration, tlie expression by the press of

pinion against such a course, be be-
i'Ved, would have chunged the purpose

ie president to modify his instructions

ilph read a part of the reference of the
esident in his message to Hawaii and
i-ked whether the report of tlie personal
liresentntive of the president acting
inler secret instructions and conducting
ex parte examination was entitled to
lure credence than the official report of

Wahiunuton, Doc. 1, 18!'.'!.
I'lio Cleveland turifl bill has been be-
ii the public four days and the most
'fill study fails to find one single ro-
'iiiiug feature therein. It would, if
ictec! a law, turn over the cream of
American market, the finest in the
rld, to Americans in exchange there-
are glittering promises of an increase
the foreign trade of the United States,
uses which are not believed in even
tlioso who have mado them. It is
'litted that free wool would nut an
' to the production of wool in this
"try and that free iron ore and coal
I cause forelirn coal and iron ore to lie
H exclusively in the neighliorhood of
fry Atlantic seaport and that Ameri-
ron ore and coal will be used no-
"r except at places so far in the I n
terior that the freight rates will allow
them to compete with foreign products.
These are only specimens of the man
ner in which American industries have
been treated by this bill. Tlie same
holds good throughout tho bill. There
is hardly a single industry of any con
sequence in the I'nited States that is
not (struck at in some way. And as if
that were not evil enough to be con
tained in a single bill, this one changes
the method of imposing the duty upon
many of the articles which it leaves
upon the dutiable list from specific to ad
valorem, a system which has been con
demned by nearly every secretary of the
treasury tlie country bus had as one
that encourages fraud and puts a pre
mium upon deception. The bill is dis
honest in every way. While purporting
to le a turiir for revenue its makers es
timute that it would produce 150,000,000
a year less than the McKinley law. It
leaves the sugar bounty, which the dem
ocrats claimed to oppose on constitu
tional grounds and provides for its con
tinuance eight yeurs, dropping a quarter
of a cent euch year. The question natu
rally arises, how can a bounty of 134
cents lie constitutional if a bounty of 2
cents was unconstitutional?
There is, however, one consoling thing
about this bill. It is so utterly bad and
vicious that it cannot possibly become a
law in its present shape, although Mr.
Cleveland's power may be sufficiently
strong to force it through the house
without 'amendment, but of that there
are doubts. The constituents of demo
cratic members who will feel the reduc
tions in watres and loss of employment
will make themselves heard and felt as
soon as they are brought to a realizing
sense of the injury to themselves that is
contained in the bill. Many believe
thnt the bill bus been made public in
its present shape shne to feel the pub
lic pulse and that the feature which
prove most obnoxious will later on be
eliminated or modified by a democratic
caucus. The report of the republican
minority of the house ways and means
committee, upon which work is now
being pushed, promises to be a docu
ment that will make republican con
verts by the thousand. It will proba
bly be ready by the last of next or the
first of the week after.
The democrats of the ways and means
committee are still undecided about a
sinirle feature of the internal revenue
bill, which they will have to prepare to
meet the big deficiency created by their
turifl' bill. They wish to include the
income tax, but so many vigorous pro
tests have lieen filed against it by lead
ing democrats that it is not certain they

It is certain that Mr. G. D. Johnson,
of Louisiana, who was the only demo
cratic member of the civil service com
mission, did not enjoy his Thanksgiving
dinner. Cause why? He was pre
emptorily removed from office by Mr.
Cleveland this week. Mr. Johnson has
ever since the democratic administration
came into office acted as though he
thought it was his duty to stand by the
most outrageous violations of the civil
service law, in favor of democrats, rather
than to enforce that law. He has been
going from bad to worse in that direc
tion, and when the time came to prepare
tlie annual report of the commission,
which is now in the hands of Mr. Cleve
land, there was an open rupture between
him and his republican colleagues, and
he refused to sign their report and wrote
one of his own. That brought matters
to a crisis and Commissioner Rosevelt
told Mr. Cleveland that he would not re
main on the commission if Johnson did.
And Johnson didn't. Prof. Proctor, of

NEW INSTRUCTION SEXT WILLIS
President Will Lay the Entire Mat
ter Before Congress with Full
San Fhancisco, Dec. 6. The Exam
iner's Washington correspondent tele
graphs that he has succeeded in secur
ing some Inside information in reference
to the administration's plans in dealing
with the Hawaiian question. The pur
pose of President Cleveland and Secre
tary (iresham now is not to attempt to
restore Queen Liliuokalani by force, but
to lay the entire question before con
gress and secure the sanction of the leg
islative branch to any new move on the
islands. Definite instructions have been
sent to Minister Willis not to tuke any
decided action until further instructions
are sent him. It seems certain that
new instructions have been sent him to
this effect by the Corwiu. It is be
lieved now that the president and sec
retary of state, from information re
ceived from Willis, have decided that
the queon cannot be restored without
force and that this course cannot be
followed without the sanction of con
Groper and Hl Instruction.
San Fkancisco, Dec. C. In its e.Ii
toriul comment on the Hawaiian situa
tion this morning, the Chronicle says:
"All that we can see and judge is that
Mr. Willis has found that he cannot
carry out his orders, and that he is
awaiting further instructions. But it
waB Mr. Cleveland's duty to have told
congress as much ; to have communicated
the nature if not the text of his instruc
tions, and for his neglect in this regard
he should be called to account."
Tlie Call has this to eay : "Sugges
tion was made some days ago that Min
ister Willis needs reefing. He spreads
over too much space. When be assumes
that G rover Cleveland holds the fate of
the islands in his hands, he forgets that
G rover Cleveland voluntarily relin
quished the right of control over the
islands which was offered the govern
ment of the Vnited States. Undoubt
edly the minister may order the marines
to be landed to protect the lives and
property of American residents, but if
this force is so directed as to pull down
one government and set up another,
somebody will have to answer."
llltt'a Hawaiian Resolution.
Washington, Dec. C. Hitt, ex-chairman
of the house committee on foreign
affairs, today introduced two resolutions
bearing on the Hawaiian policy of the
government, the first calling for the
papers in the case and the second as
"It is the sense of the house that in
tervention by the government of the
United States, its representatives or
armed forces in the affairs of a friendly
and recognized government, to disturb
or overthrow it and to substitute a mon
archy therefor, is contrary to the policy
and traditions of the republic and the
spirit of the constitution."

Important Point Against the Indicted
Judgo Bellinger has thrown a cannon
ball into the smugglers' camp by an
nouncing in open court that he is con
vinced he erred in the ruling niaae in
tlie PunU.7 trial that conviction could
not be had on the evidence of accom
plices without corroborative testimony.
The court smd :
"In that case I ruled that there would
be no conviction without the testimony
of other than accomplices. I did this
without investigation. I have since in
vestigated it, and I find the testimony of
an accomplice is sufficient evidence for
the jury to convict if they believe the
testimony is true. I make this state
ment now so that counsel will not be
taken by surprise. I am satisfied I
made a mistake in that ruling, and I
hasten to correct it at the earliest possi
The ruling, which Judgo Bellinger
stated was made in error, was that on
which he based the instructions in his
charge to the jury that conviction could
not be had on eight of the fourteen
counts in the indictments against Dun
bar, because there was no testimony
corroborating that of Blum, Gartbome,
Jackling and Berg, who were accom
plices, and ; it was on the remaining six
counts in the two Indictments that the
jury returned the verdict of guilty

Theories Advanced That the President
Will Recommend Forcible Restoration.
Washington-, Dec. 7. It is not certain
yet what course the executive will take
in response to the resolution of the sen
ate calling for information on the
Hawaiian episode. The information
will be given, but whether as a formal
response to the senate resolution or in a
special message from the president,
which takes no note of the resolution
has not yet been determined. The in
formation is prepared and can be sent in
at any time. It was apparently put in
shape to accompany the president's
forthcoming special message before the
resolution passed the senate yesterday.
There is excellent authority for saying
that Minister Willis' present orders are
to employ no force of arms. It is prob
able the instructions by the Corwin are
for him to proceed in his effort to per
suade the provisional government to
allow Liliuokalani to be restored. It is
intimated from a responsible source
that the ex-queen declines to go back on
the throne unless by consent of the pro
visional government leaders, or a guar
antee of protection by the United States.
There had been theories advanced
that after hearing again from Minister
Willis, and learning positively that the
queen cannot be restored, except by the
use of the United States troops, the
president will present to congress the
case of the queen as a wronged monarch,
whose government was overthrown by
this government, and assert that it is
now the duty of the United States to re
store the former condition even by using
force. This is the idea advanced by the
friends of the administration.
A TRAGEDY ON SHIPBOARD.
An Obnoxious Holly Killed
San Francisco, Dec. 7. Advice9 have
just been received by mail from San
Bias, Mexico, to the effect that on the
afternoon of the 18th of last November,
James F. Culty, a steerage passenger on
board the steamer City of Sydney, from
San Francisco for Panama, was shot
through the brain with a revolver by
Albert Spincb, a stockman of Utah, who
was also a steerage passenger. It ap
pears that Culty was of a very obnox
ious, bullying disposition, and took of
fense because Spinch wore spectacles.
After abusing Spinch he started up from
the supper table saying, "And you with
the glasses I'll fix ;" advancing at tlie
same time in a threatening manner.
Spinch immediately backed away, draw
ing his revolver as be did so, and when
Culty was within striking distance he
fired. The captain of the vessel exon
erated Spinch from all blame, and
Culty's remains were buried at sea the
following morning. On the day after
the burial Jose Jacintho de Brun Costa,
an elderly passenger, became a raving
maniac in consequence of having wit
nessed the tragedy, and when the
steamer reached Mazatlan he sprang
overboard and tried to swim ashore. He
was with difficulty rescued and taken
back to the vessel.
Thousand of People In Chicago With
out Food or Shelter.
CmcAtio, Dec. 7. The distress among
the unemployed Is so great that every
night 600 find lodgings on the cold floors
in the corridor of the city hall. These
are only a few of the great number who i
have no place to sleep. Five hundred
sleep in the chairs in the Pacific Garden
mission. From 1,400 to 1,500 find lodg
ing on the stone floors in the cells In the
police stations. Last night it was an
nounced that eight churches will be
thrown open to furnish lodgings for
those who have no other. The men
will be given a cup of coffee and
rolls in the morning. This action was
forced upon Christian people by the fact
that for the last month the unemployed
and unsheltered thousands have been
crowding around engine rooms in build
ings and other places where there was
heat and shelter, begging for a place
where they might be protected from the
cold. Hcrry Monroe, superintendent of
the Pacific Harden mission, brought
these facts to the attention of the
churches with the result above stated.
