4TH OF JULYAT HAWAII
Minister Blount Declines to Deliver
AND WON'T CELEBRATE AT ALL.
Afraid It Might Be Looked On as
Though He Were Taking Sides
San Francisco, June 28. The steam
ship Australia arrived from Honolulu
this morning, bringing advices to June
During the days that have elapsed
since the departure of the last steamer
for San Francisco there have, been no
new developments in politics, but Amer
ican tongues have been wagging in a
vigorous manner at Minister Blount's
refusal to participate in the coming
Fourth of July celebration. Not only
did the American minister refuse to at
tend the meeting of Americans to arrange
for the proper observance of their na
tional day, but he also declined to make
an address to his countrymen as a part
of their demonstration. Mr. Blount
gives as a reason for his policy of stand
ing aloof that he believes the political
situation here to be so peculiar that it
would not be becoming in him to take
part in any public celebration. Although
be does not sat' so, it is quite evident
that Mr. Blount looks upon the Fourth
of Jujy celebration here as purely an an
nexationist affair, and he does not wish
to participate in any affair that could
give the impression that he favored the
annexation cause. The American resi
dents here say that the Fourth of July is
not an annexationist holiday, but is, and
has been for years in Honolulu, a day
when patriotic Americans, whatever their
local politics, might be joined together
in an observance of the day set by their
ancestors as a national holiday in the
Stabbed to Death.
San Fkancisco, June 28. An unknown
woman about 30 years of age was stabbed
in a water front saloon early this morn
ing and left to die in a little apartment
in the rear of the saloon. She came into
the place with Martin O'Neil, chief of
the galvanizing department of the Union
iron works. He says they went in to
have a drink, but he could not recollect
what took place. O'Neil's face was
scratched and blood was found under the
woman's finger nails. She evidently
came from Oakland with O'Neil. It is
said he has a divorced wife there. He
was arrested for the crime, and the police
are positive he is the man.
James Lotan Fired.
Washington, June 28. The president
this morning summarily removed from
office James Lotan, collector of customs
at Portland, Or. This unusual action
was taken on receipt this morning of a
telegram from special agents of the treas
ury department, who have been engaged
for some time investigating the fraudu
lent practices prevailing in the Fuget
sound and Portland districts. The tele
gram stated they had information of the
intended landing at Portland of a large
number of Chinese coolies. Lotan was
summarily dismissed and his deputy
placed in charge, who will continue to
act until Black, the new collector, qual
BLAND ON FBI! SILVER.
An Interview With the Great Silver
St. Louis, June 28. Congressman R.
H. Bland, the great silver advocate, is
here. Reviewing the silver situation as
affected by the action of the Indian gov
ernment, he said :
"Heroic measures will be required on
the part of this government for the re
monetization of silver. Most emphatic
ically I do not think it is a knockout for
silver in this country. On the contrary,
I think if congress does not adopt some
measure looking to a bimetallic stand
ard it will make the battle of the stand
ards the coming issue in this country.
This battle will disrupt the political
parties and cause a contest between the
commercial centers and agricultural
districts of the country. Free coinage
of silver is demanded by the laboring
classes, and this is what the free-silver
men will now demand of congress. The
demonetization of silver is a conspiracy
between banking institutions in Eng
land and the eastern portion of the
United States, and the suspension of
silver coinage in India is a part of this
conspiracy to bulldoze the congress of
the United States to the adoption of a
single gold standard. I do not believe
they will succeed. If the democratic
congress stands true to its fpledges, this
conspiracy will not succeed. The low
price of silver is due to the fact that this
and other governments are discriminat
. ing against it and that the money inter
ests in this and other countries have
fought it. No important commercial
country has recently bad a mint for the
free exchange of gold and silver. The
effect has been to dam up silver and pre
vent its exchange for the commerce of
nations. That the United States by
free coinage can restore silver to its ori
ginal value wasjpractically admitted by
the British royal commission of 1888,
consisting of twelve member; six of
them uncompromising gold monometal
ists. They admitted that France alone
could maintain the parity of the two
metals at the rate of 15)4 to 1. This
country is stronger'injmaterial wealth,
developed and undeveloped, than France
and England combined."
Thursday, June 29. The depression
in business circles that characterized
the former part of the season and the
lifeless condition of trade, apparently
have, in a measure, vanished, and the
past few weeks have been encouraging
to dealers and business generally.
Money has been easier and the volume
of trade has increased in all branches in

tin for the week ending June 19th con
tains the statement that the average per
cent will not exceed 78 per cent of acre
age and prospective yield. Later ad
vices will determine the product, but
enough is known to base the calcula
tion that the yield for 1893 will approxi
mate near 435,000,000 bushels, and with
the hold-over, as estimated, of 78 mil
lions, will be 513,000,000 against nearly
600,000,000 for 1892.
The wool situation is unchanged with
one exception, and that is a weaker
market in the east. Boston quotations
of the 23d for Oregon wools show a de
cline of 2 cents per pound on all grades.
The following from Philadelphia of the
24th inst says of wool :
The situation continues unsatisfac
tory. Values of coarse and medium un
washed wools have reached a point at
which buyers are showing more interest,
but on all grades of washed wools prices
are to a great extent nominal. .The sup
ply of the latter is not yet large enough
to fairly establish a market. A few lots
are selling at 2728 for fine Ohio de
laine and there are reports of some
business in fine clothing fleeces at 25c,
and in medium at 28c but the transac
tions at these rates are small and buy
ers evince no disposition to operate
freely, except at further material con
cessions, which receivers are not yet in
position to offer. Fair sales of quarter
and medium unwashed have been made
at 19J20c and here and there buyers
have made offers for considerable lines
at 19c. Belief consequently gains
ground in some quarters that these
wools are nearing the bed-rock of value,
but many manufacturers are still un
willing to operate, even on the present
Western advices indicate a more gen
eral disposition to realize, but there is
much irregularity in the views of inter
ior holders and the movement of sup
plies to the seaboard is comparatively
slow. Considering (he decline that has
already taken place, it is not surpris
ing that Western growers should be re
luctant to part with their clips at still
further concessions, but the attitude of
buyers shows no change from the deter
mination heretofore expressed to buy
the new wools only at prices on a parity
with the foreign costs without duty.
There is much difference of opinion as
to what really is the "free trade" value
of many grades of wool, but buyers are
more likely to err on the side of undue

Norway and Sweden.
Owing to dissatisfaction existing on
account of its union with Sweden, Nor

its allegiance to King Oscar II.. Norway

Strength and Health.
If- you are not feeling strong and
healthy, try Electric Bitters. If "la
grippe" has left you weak and wear 7,
use Electric Bitters. This remedy acts
directly on liver, stomach and kidneys,
gently aiding those organs to perform
their functions. If you are afflicted with
sick headache, you will find speedy and
permanent relief by taking Electric
Bitters. One trial will convince you
that this is the remedy you need. Large
