MR BLOUNT AT HAWAII
People of Honolulu Turn Out en Masse
to Receive Him.
HE REFUSED TO BE INTERVIEWED
The Objects of His Mission Still Re
main a Secret Annexation
San Fbancisco, April 5.; Correspond
ence Associated Press, Honolulu, March
29. The past two -weeks have been
fruitful of political matters. The gen
eral lethargy of the Hawaiians prior to
March 4th has given away to action.
The Civil Rights League and the Ha
waiian Patriotic League have held fre
quent mass meetings, at which either
annexation or disfranchisement were
the respective subjects of denunciation.
On the evening of March 21st, the day
before the arrival of the steamship Aus
tralia with the news that the annexa
tion treaty had been shelved, a meeting
of white residents, numbering fully
1,500, was held, at which an annexation
club was formed, which now has 1,200
members, and speeches were made by
some of the most prominent men in
Honolulu. Robert Wilcox, editor of the
Liberal , was made one of the vice-presidents
of the club, and was the only
Hawaiian who prominently allied him
self with the meeting. The honor was
practically forced upon Wilcox, who had
hitherto considered that his influence
would be greater among the natives if
he held aloof from open demonstrations.
The United States revenue cutter
Rush arrived here this morning, nine
days from San Francisco, havingon board
ex-Congressman Blount, of Georgia,
who was appointed commissioner to in
vestigate the existing conditions in
Hawaii, and report as to the expediency
of annexation of the islands to the
United States. As soon as the cutter
was sighted off Koko head, at 9 a. m.,
the business men went to work, and in
a short time the streets and' buildings
were covered with flags and bunting.
The townspeople turned out en masse,
and by 11 o'clock, when the Rush an
chored in Naval Bow, the docks and
streets were crowded. The mail
steamer Australia which was scheduled
to leave at noon , was held back and from
her deck the band of the provisional
government welcomed the new arrivals
with the strains of the "Star Spangled
Banner." A delegation from the An
nexation Club was hastily formed and
welcomed the commissioner at the boat
landing. A party of about 75 Hawaiian
women from the woman's branch of the
Hawaiian Patriotic League, bearing the
American and Hawaiian flags, also pro
ceeded to the dock. Dr. J. S. McGrew,
chairman, and Professor Scott and Gen
eral Hart well, as a committee from the
Annexation Club ; United States Minis
ter F. P. Hastings, secretary of the for
eign office and aid to President Dole ;
Major Robertson, the queen's chamber
lain, and newspaper correspondents put
off to the Rush to pay their respects to
the commissioner. The news that but
one person had been sent in that capac
ity to the islands soon spread to the
shore and occasioned much surprise.
Commissioner Blount declined to be in
terviewed for publication, but from
casual conversation it would seem that
his labors here may cover a period of
several weeks. The Rush will probably
return to San Francisco in the mean
time. Commissioner Blount did not
leave the steamer for several hours, and
consequently the reception by the
Hawaiian League and Annexation Club
did not take place. The Rush brought
dispatches from Washington to Admiral
Skerrett, and also to the provisional
government, but the nature of them
could not be learned. After the first
feeling of surprise had passed away, an
expression of satisfaction at the person
nel of the commission prevailed among
the annexationists. The Rush brought
no mail from the states, and the arrival
of the Rio Janeiro, which is expected to
put in here tomorrow on her way to
China, is awaited for further particulars
as to the sentiment in America.
Seattle, April 5. Special to The
Chbonicle. The political pot has been
boiling for some time and Seattle has
many aspirants in the field for positions.
The register of the land office, at this
place, resigned his position on the 1st
inst., and it is generally believed that
Hon. A McDonald will he the successful
man in securing this position. Mr.
McDonald was the register of The Dalles
land office under Cleveland's adminis
tration and was succeeded by Capt.
Lewis. He seems to have the endorse
ment of the united democracy and the
high position which he occupies in the
esteem of the cid'zens of this city is all
in his favor. There is a doubtful feeling
in the minds of the Allen men, regard
ing the probabilities of United States
senate seating Mr. Allen.
It is reported that the Union Pacific
are soon to place their line of steamers
again on the Sound. It will be remem
bered that the Union Pacific withdrew
their line of steamers upon payment by
the Northern Pacific to the Union Paci
fic of quite a large sum of money
monthly. This will increase the busi
ness of the Sound country.
Returns from Kansas show the repub
licans have scooped the state. There
has been a strong change of sentiment
against the populists.
J. W. Shiverly, of Astoria died Tues
day morning at Astoria. He came to
Oregon in 1843. He was born April 2d,
1804. He willed all his property,
amounting to about $200,000, to his son
two years ago.
A fierce forest fire is raging in the
pine woods near Raleigh, N. C. Many
people owning turpentine orchards are
ruined. One man has lost 2,000 acres
of trees. The town of West End is
nearly wiped out.
Thomas F. Crittenden of Missouri has
been nominated consul-general to
Mexico. Crittenden is best known as
the man who, as governor of Missouri,
broke up the notorious James brothers'
gang of outlaws. He is a lawyer.
The detectives who have been working
on the Richardson case claim that they
will have no difficulty in presenting
evidence to show that he removed the
rail for the purpose of pbtaining the re
ward. In fact, they are of the opinion
that by a little more urging he will make
a clean breast of the whole affair.
Senator Palmer of Illinois is authority
for the statement that President Cleve
land has decided on a man for pension
commissioner, and that his name will
be sent to the senate within 48 hours.
He declined to give the name, but from
a hint he dropped it is believed the man
is Judge William Lochren, of St. Paul,
Carter H. Harrison has been elected
mayor of Chicago by 20,000 plurality
over Samuel W. Allerton, candidate on
the citizens' ticket. The entire demo
cratic city ticket is also elected by about
the same .plurality. Cregier, on the
labor ticket, did not receive 3,000 votes.
The democrats carried the west and
south town tickets, but the republicans
saved the north town.
Hon. E. J. Phelps, counsel on behalf
of the United States, continuing his ar
gument at Paris in the Behring sea con
troversy, contended that the British
supplementary report was inadmissible.
The admission of new evidence at this
stage, Phelps said, was a gross injustice
to the United States, because it deprived
them of any chance to adduce rebutting
Reley Hannersly, of Josephine county,
has struck a pocket on Jump-Off-Joe
creek which contains a large amount of
soft quartz, which will run $100,000 to
the ton. It is a pocket in a two-foot
ledge, the extent of which has not yet
been determined. From 60 pounds of
the quartz he has pounded out $425. Old
prospectors here pronounce it the rich
est rock they have ever seen. Some
active prospecting will be done on Jump-Off-Joe
Creek within the next few weeks.
Dan lrlalts Orovcr.
Washington, April 5. Senator Dolph
today introduced Dan Murphy and John
Myers to the president. It is doubtful
if Myers can be appointed marshal, for
the fact that he has held that office con
stitutes an objection. Murphy says he
and McKee have agreed upon candidates
for most of the places in Oregon.' Roby
is expected here in a few days, and will
press his application for postmaster or
minister to Turkey.
The Jersey Lily Got Left.
London, April 5 The entire prop

Orleans, is left to his mother for her
lifetime, and.upon her death to be di

BETRAYED AND SHOT
Sad Death at Horsanfleld of a Beautiful
HER HUSBAND'S FRIENDS GUILTY
A Drunken Wretch Charged With
Rilling His Mother, who Sup
ported Him in Idleness.
Morgan-field, Ky., April 5. Miss
Abbie Oliver, a beautiful young lady of
Sturgis, Union county, was led astray
eight months ago. Last night the
mother of the girl entered the place of
business of Henry Delaney, a drug clerk,
and accused him of being responsible
for the girl's condition. At the point of
a pistol she compelled him to enter a
carriage with her husband and daughter.
They drove 15 miles to Morganfield,
procured a license and compelled him to
marry the girl. On the way back the
carriage was attacked by armed men on
horseback, Delaney 's friends who fired
into the carriage. They folowed it as it
flew up the road, Delaney having
jumped out and joined them. The
girl was shot through the head, and
died this morning. She would soon
have become a mother. The father was
also mortally wounded. Mrs. Oliver
recognized the pursuers, and warrants
for their arrest were issued. All belong
to prominent families. More bloodshed
Accused of Killing His Mother.
Boston, April 5. Thomas Brown, a
picture-frame maker of dissipated char
acter, was arrested this morning charged
with killing his mother, Mrs. Catharine
O'Meally, an old woman who lived at
72 Broadway, South Boston, by beating
her. Brown has been a habitual
drinker for years, and for a week or
more constantly. He is about 33 years
old and a widower. Mrs. O'Meally,
the murdered woman, was married
twice. Her first husband's name was
Brown, and he has been dead some
years. Some time after his death she
married John O'Meally, who subse
quently left her. The accused man
lived with his mother, and, according to
the statements of the neighbors, they
did not get along together on account of
Brown's drinking habits. Brown was
drunk last night, and this morning the
bruised and battered body of his mother
was found on the floor of her room .
A Notorious Woman Lynched.
Charleston, W. Va., April 5.
About a week ago Policeman Chandler,
of Bluffield, Mercer county, was killed
in the notorious disorderly house of

woman in West Virginia, who is
believed to have had a hand in several
murders, and who has defied the author
ities relative to illicit distilling. Mon

by a crowd of black and white toughs,
in which Charles Morgan, colored, shot
and killed John Lees, a colored boy.

mob of citizens. "Kiz" Redd fled pur
sued by the mob, and is reported to
