Honolulu, Jan. 18. Cor. A. P.
The downfall of. the Hawaiian mon
arcbial government has finally occurred.
Yesterday a provisional .government
was organized, composed entirely- of
white residents, who assumed control of
all the functions of government and
awaits the decision of the United States
government whether it will accept the
Islands as a portion of its domain. The
events which led up- to this situation
commenced immediately ' before the
departure of the steamship Mariposa
for San Francisco January 11th, by the
passage of a bill which gave a conces
sion for the establishment of a lottery in
the kingdom that franchise being given
to six people on the promise of an an
nual payment of $500,000. This meas
ure the ministers would not support and
the proposition had the support of only
one white man, the other twenty-five
votes necessary to curry it being con
tributed entirely by natives and half
This act was followed on the after
noon of January 12th, after the depart
ure of the Mariposa, by springing a vote
of want of confidence in the ministry,
and which after but little argument was
passed by a vote of twenty -five, the
exact number necessary. The, defeated
ministry had the confidence of the pub
lic and of capitalists and the business
community, and as a prorogation of
parliament had been set . for January
2lst, by the queen herself, their tenure
of office was expected to run until 1894.
Considerable excitement then followed
among the white residents of the islands,
which was heightened on January 13th
by the appointment of a ministry in
which there was no confidence, and by
the fact that the queen on the morning
of Jan. 14th signed the lottery bill.
The climax was reached on Jan. 15th
by the queen attempting to promulgate
a new constitution, guaranteeing to her
absolute authority, but which her new
ministiy declined to indorse. The
queen made her appeal almost entirely
to the natives and half caets to sustain
her. There was a public meeting in
front of the palace later on. at which
the queen announced the failure of her
plans, and early in the evening the
citizens met, and formed a committee
of public safety.
On the 16th a mass meeting was held
in tbe armory. About 5 p. in., the
United States steamer Boston landed
300 men, all fully armed. They marched
to the office of the consul-general of the
United States. - The marines were sent
to the American legation, while the sail
ors marched out along Merchant street
with two Gatling guns, and camped for
a time on private grounds. A1,l day
Tuesday, the 18th, the community was
in a state of expectancy, looking to the
committee of public safety to do some
thing to end the state of tension and to
secure the rights of all citizens against
encroachment once and for all. The
ministry fled and the committee read the
proclamation to the masses, declaring
the Hawaiian monarchical system of
government is hereby abrogated,' and
Droceededto form a provisional 'govern
ment. All Free. '

Smith, the representative in Washington
of Queen LHIiuokalani, after an inter
view with Secretary Foster thought the
new government could be maintained
without a display force by . the United
States. He believed, he said, that the
people themselves .would regulate mat
ters, and that there . would . be no
trouble. Smith had believed the revo
lution inevitable, but thought it would
sot come so soon. , The Banger and the
Mohican have been ordered to sea im

olulu, and the Ranger to proceed to San
Francisco and await further orders. The
revolution was accomplished without
bloodshed.- H. B. Dole, an American,
was made president of the provisional
government. The commission will
reach here Tuesday. Up to the time of
the departure of, the commission from
Honolulu, all the powers represented in

Britain and Japan, have recognized the

Must Ceate Interfering.
CrsciNATi, Jan, 20. The United
States court has taken positive action
in the cess of the miners' strike, the re
sult of which will be interesting. Some
time ago L. C. Black was appointed by
the federal court receiver of the Great
Western Coal aud Mining Company,
operating mines on the Big Sandy liver.
When he discharged the check-weigher
the mines struck and refured lo let any
one fake their- places. Judge Taft
has found them in contempt, and issued
an o"der that they must ceas-e interfer

An astonishing feature of the Colum
bian exposition will be one of tbe palaces
grouped in the heart of the fair grounds.
It is the Manufactures building. It will
bear the same relation to this exposition
as the Eiffel tower did to that of Paris
in-1889, and indeed its possible use as a
vantage point from which to see the fair
grounds has terminated in the negative
the discussion for and against the con
struction in Chicago of a rival to the
great tower of Paris. This greatest of
all the exposition buildings, and of the
buildings of the world, will present to
Lake Michigan a facade of such a length
as to suggest the wall of a city, yet it is
so admirably designed, so light and
graceful in its effect upon the vision,
that its true extent can only be compre
hended when its dimensions are ex
pressed in figures and by comparisons.
It is one-third of a mile long, and to
compass it round about is to walk a
mile. The roof of it is 1,688 by 788 feet,
and' the span of the dome, the largest
ever attempted, is 388 feet. The roof is
230 feet from the ground, and the build
ing has forty acres of ground floor. Two
of the vast machinery halls of the Para
exposition could be wheeled through it,
and the Auditorium, the building of
which Chicago is most proud, could be
pushed under this great roof, tower and

Sending a Minister Foreign.
CKCI9K IN THE WARSHIP NEWARK.
Received by Order of the Saltan am
the Imperial ' Yacht Tall a at
Smyrna Hla Abode.
, Pootxako, Jan. 30. Hon.- D. P.
Thompson, U. S. Minister to Turkey,
arrived in Constantinople "Dec. 26th.
Word was brought here yesterday by
Mr. Horace Brown, of England, on bis
way home from a trip around the world. .
Mr. Thompson completed his trip under
ratljer unusual circumstances. He had
been instructed to proceed to his post by
way of Brindisi, Italy, where he was to
meet the American cruiser Newark flag
ship of the Mediterranean squadron,
commanded by Captain Casey, and hav
ing Rear-Admiral Ben ham and staff on.
board, and proceed in her to Constanti
nople. This was rather unusual, as it
is not the custom to send a United
States minister to a foreign capital in a
man-of-war. Mr. Thompson joined the
Newark, December 19, and was received
with the honors of a minister, a salute
of 21 guns, and prepared to sail the same
dcy for Constantinople, but Admiral
-Benhain was not sure of the right of a
bhip of the armament of the Newark to
pass the Dardanelles, and it was de
cided to send a dispatch to Constantino
ple asking permission for the Newark to
come to that city, the answer to be sent -to
Smyrna in Asia Minor where the
Newark was held.
On arriving at Smyrna an answer was
icce'ved stat'ng that it would be a bad
precedent to set to allow a cruiser of the
armament of the Newark to pass the
Dardanelles, but that tbe sultan had
ordered the imperial yacht Talia, with,
two of his staff on board, to proceed to
Smyrna and bring the minister to the .
capital. The Talia passed tbe Darda- -nelles
on the afternoon of Christmas
day, with tbe stars and stripes flying,
and was saluted by the forts and shore
batteries on the way, and arrived at
the entrance of the Golden Horn on the
morning of the 26th, when the minister
was sent on shore in the Talia's boat,
with the American flag flying, and was
saluted by the Talia's crew on leaving.
Abrahim Bey, Dr. Isaac -Pasha and Mr.
Gargiu'o went in the Talia to meet Mr.
Thompson when he arrived and took np -his
abode at the Hotel de Londres. Mr.
Brown was' staying at the Hotel de
Londres at the time, and says the arri
val was made the occasion of quite a
He says there was quite a little un
dercurrent of talk as to why such un- .
usual honors should be paid the new
minister from the United States by the
sultan, as such a reception has not been
accorded the minister of any other na
tion in his service, and why it was given
in this case no one appeared to know.
Mr. Brown says he bad just a moment's
i conversation with Mr. Thompson, who
appeared to be in good health and spirits,
but had many important matters to at-
j tend to. On the 27th Mr. Thompson
i went to the portn with Mr. A. Gargiulo,
I first dragoman of the legation, and called
upon the minister of foreign affairs, his
excellency, Said Pasha, with whom he
left a copy of his credentials. On the
evening of the 28th a grand dinner was
given by the British ambassador to wel
come the new United States minister, at
which most of the diplomats were pres
scnt. Daring the following week he was
to be presented to the sultan.
