Waniiinoton. Jan, 20. The preiii
dent in a liricl note of trnnMiiittu!, today
iitniiiltBj to coiiKreHH the UtUtet correa
pundence relating to Hawaii. It coin
iriwi wiiiie brief nolo of Miniater Willi
Ui Hei.'retary (iieHhum, which are un
iiriKjrtant, but the chief feature of it are
the tatters pmtMiiig between Milliliter
V f 1 1 i M and J'ri-nidciit Dole, in one of
which the milliliter romplains of the
iiltcrame of Ilole at reflecting on the
reaident of ihe United States, and
letter from Dole in whieb he Siecially
inquirea if Willis' instructions author
ised the una of force.
In the pnnident's tneapaxe trans
tnittiiu U) the house the Hawaiian cor
reapondence which accompanied the
same, lie Ae of including a most ex
traordinary letter dated I)ecember 27,
li)3, and sixned by Hanford B. Djle,
minister of foreign aflaire for the provisi
onal itovernment, addreitsed to our
niininUT. Willis, after the arrival of my
niesKagn at Honolulu, with copies of the
Instructions given our minister.
Under date of Dee. 27th, Willis wrote
to Dole: "Your communiektion would
have received an immediate answer ex
cept for the statement reflecting upon
the president of the United Htates and
his diplomatic tfvnl in this country,
which, in view of their gravity, should,
I renpeclfully submit, be set forth with
more particularity and certainty."
Under the date of December 2!th,
Dole writes to Wilis as follows: "I de
sire to state that the arrival of news
paier copies by late mail, since my note
to you, and the secial meanse of the
president of the United States to con
gress on the Hawaiian matter bas
rendered ony further correspondence on
the subject of my letter unnecessary, as
the meittsge satifactorily answers my
iliiesi ions as to the future action of the
American administration towards the
government, the whole Hawaiian mat
ter having been referred to congress by
the president. If, however, you still
desire the specifications requested, I will
be ready to furnish them."
Under date of Decemeber 29th Willis
writes to Dole : ''Am I to understand
that your communication of the latter
date is withdrawn? If this is your in
tention, as I hope it is, I would, for the
best interests of all, augment that the
whole correspondence on the subject be
withdrawn, with the underxtanding that
the original letters tie returned to their
authors and that no copies be given to
the public or made of record by either
Without signature. Dole writes to
Willis, that it is not his intention to
withdraw any letters
The corresoondeni'e ends hre with
the matter apparently brought up to the
point of Dole's reply offering to furnish
the speciftrntlona if detired.
COMMKNTS OF CONOKESSMBM.
The Hawaiian correspondence, after
being read once, displaced all other
questions, in the way of comment among
public men at the capitol. The republi
can lenders regarded the position of Pres
ident Dole as impregnable, and they
were stirred to jest and humor at the
expense of Minister Willis. The demo
cratic leaders of the house admitted the
coriespondence did not add any cheering
information to that already before them.
They freely complimented Willi for the
diplomacy with which he had dwelt with
the questions and situations.
Bondi and the I, of L.
Dks Moinks, la., Jan. 20. Grand
Muster Workman Sovereign today fur
nished the press with the following
statement as to the basis of his suit to
restrain Secretary Carlisle from issuing
"If the secretary of the treasury is
compelled by law to keep in the na
tional treasury $100 ,000,000 in gold he
violated the law when he reduced the
amount below the required sum, and
should be impeached. If he is not re
quired to maintain f 100,000,000 gold re
serve, or any specific sum, his offer to
to sell $50,000,000 bonds, under the act.
of January 18, 1875, is without authority
and in violation of the law. If he has
the authority to Bell the bonds for the
purpose of keeping intact the $100,000,
000 gold reserve his proposition to Bell
bonds far in excess of the deficit in the
reserve fund is still without the author
ity of law and in violation of bis oath of
May Hava to Leava Borne.
Romb, Jan. 20. There is a persistent
rumor today to the effect that the pope
has sent a diplomatic note to all the
papal nuncio for communication to the
Kuroean governments, to which they
are accredited, on the perils of the situa
tion in Kome, and the possible necessity
which may arise for his holiness to leave
that city. It is further staled tiiat there
exists a secret understanding between
the Holy 8ee and Spain, by which the
latter government has agreed to provide
tn asylum for the pope in case of Deed.
Tbs Cue of Btagga.
W'asiiinotox, Jan. 20 Controller
Kckels has not yet decided what he will
do in the case of Receiver fitapge, of the
Oregon National bank, but the probabili
ties are that he will be retained in his
present position. Hundreds of letters
from persons in Oregon and Spokane
aud other portions of Washington have
been received by the controller, u ging
that Htsgge be retained. IVople in the
West, who knew senators and repre
sentatives, have written them here and
these letters have been banded to the
controller. The first letter whicli Ecke's
received from titagge was not what be
expected, but there is another expected
by Monday, whicli gives the career of
Kiagge. If Ktagge is retained it is the
purpose of the controller to give out a
history of the whole affair, in order that
he may tie justified before Ihe country.
II has already talked the matter over
with the president and w II do so again
so soon as he has Ktagge's history to show
him. Business men and lawyers have
been conspiciou in urging that Stagge
be retained. The report of Examiner
Eldridge will largely guide Eckels in his
Tfci BehriEf Boa Patrol Float.
Yallkjo. Cal., Jan. 20. Naval advices
received at the Mare island navy yard

Captain Collin, with the cruiser Phila
delphia or Charleston as the flagship,
provided the Olympia is not put 'n com

she would become tho flagship and her
captain detailed as senior fleet officer.

Sibery, aged about 24 years, attempted
to commit suicide this evening by jump
ing off the steamship wharf, and board
was quickly thrown to the girl, bot she
refused to touch it. A sailor of the
United States steamship Albatross and
another man got a boat and reached the
girl before she sank. She begged them
to let her drown, and they were com.
pelled to use force in getting her ashore.
The chief ofpolice was notified, and took
the virl home in a hack. She told him !

Another 8opram Jidgt lominated.
Washington, Jan. 22. The president
today sent to the senate the nomination
of Wheeler 11. Peckbam, of New York,
to be associate justice of the supreme
court of the United States. Toe nomi
nation sent Senator Hill harrying about
the floor of the senate in a lively stvle.
He was quickly in consultation with the
members of the judiciary committee,
who will pass upon the nomination lie
fore it is reported to the senate. The
senators, generally, thought, Jndt:e Peck
ham, of the court appeals of New York,
was the man, but Hill explained that
such was not the case, that the present
nominee was his brother. The indica
tions are strong that the nomination
will be opposed upon the same gro inds
that that of Hornblower was.

ments for the grand procession and cere
monies, which are to take place Satur

Wasiiinotok, Jan. 22. The bill pro
vide for an income tax to go into effect
on January 1, 1895, and the first collec
tion on incomes will be made on July 1,
1805. All classes of inco nes are included
! in the measure, and a uniform rate of
12 per cent tax on incomes over $4000.
No tax is levied on tho making let urn
of above $.T0 and under $1000, but
the committee deemed it expedient to
leave a margin of $500 below the exemp
tion point in order that returns might be
sure from all subject to the tax. In case
a person having an income of over $3500
fails to make return, it becomes the duty
of the revenne assessor to make the in
quiry as to the amount ot such person's
income. If the examination discloses
an incsme above $1000 the income is sub
jected to twice the ordinary tax, and the
party falling to make return is guilty of
a criminal offense and made subject to
fine and imprisonment.
Particular provision is made for the
collection of the income lax due on
salaries, not only of officials bot also the
salaries of individuals received from
business firms or corporations. The
individual receiving salary does not
pay a tax, but it is made the duty of
every Government, State and municipal
i disbursing officer to retain 2 per cent of
all sa'aries over the taxable a -noun t.
This 2 per cent will be taken out of the
salaries in bulk at the last payment of
salary for the year.
The tax upon corporitions includes
every sort of corporate stock. This tax
is general and without the $XK) ex
emption allowed upon individaal in
comes. It is provided that including
the tax on its corporate stork the cor
poration shall pay the tax and deduct
the amount from the dividends to stock
It is made the duty of each corporation
to take 2 per cent from each annual cor
porate income from the amount set apart
for the stockholders and pay the total to
the internal revenue collector in ita
locality. Severe penalties are provided
for the failure to make proper reduction
from the dividends of stockholders and
for failure to make retnrns to the revenue
Swallowed Too If any Bworda
New Y"oak, Jan. 20. Cliquot, a
French-Canadian sword-swallower, to
day swallowed 14 22-inch swords at one
time, and tonight lies unconscious and
suffering fiom internal injuries at the
Union square hospital, Cliquot gave an
exhibition in sword-swallowing this after
noon in his room at the hotel. After
swallowing all sorts of swords he swal
lowed a long cavalry saber, and to show
that there was no deception about the
act, he placed a bar on the hilt which
protruded from his mouth and weighted
the bar with a 14-pound dumb-bell.
Then he took 14 swords, the blades of
which were about an inch wide, and put
ting them in his mouth swallowed them.
A Dr. Hope, for whose benefit the ex
hibition was given, instead of drawing;
the swords out singly, drew them all out
at once, cutting Cliquot severely and
causing the human sheath to faint. A
physician was called in and gave Cli
quot a hypodermic injection of morphine
to relieve the pain. Cliquot was re
ported in a critical condition tonight,
and he is not expected to live.
