He Accnses Mr. Blount of Wi
fully Perverting Facts.
UNFAIR METHODS WERE USED
The Charge of Collusion between
Stevens and the Revolution
ists Flatly Denied. .
Washington, Nov. 21. Lorraln
Thurston, Hawnilar. minister, gave ou
a statement tonight. He says: "I am
orged to make a statement for publlea
tion. setting forth the claims and pos
I: Ion of the Hawaiian government, and
making reply to the charges eont,alne
in lilount s report. As I received no-
dllclal information that Blount had
made a report, I am unable intelligent
ly to state what the position and claims
of the government are. A large pro
portion' of the published extracts from
Blount's reports consist of personal at
tacks 1 upon me, and those associated
with me in the provisional government
impugning our veracity, good faith and
courage, charging us with fraud and
duplicity. First, I desire to call atten
Hon to Blount's method of construct
Ing his report. Although he in several
places states I was a leader of the
revolutionary movement, he never ask
ed me a question concerning the same.
nor has he given me an opportunity
to make any statement. The same Is
true of a large number of other men
who havj taken a leading part In the
movement of January. His evidence
consists exclusively of prepared aiu
davits or answers to leading questions
put by himself at private interviews,
no one else being present but a stenog
rapher. In no instance was there any
cross-examination nor opportunity giv
en for contradiction or to explain the
evidence. A brief examination of the
published portions of the report shows
numerous incorrect statements. Blount
charges that the American troops enter
ed under a pre-arranced agreement
with the committee of safety. At no
time did Stevens or Capt. Wiltz assure
me or the committee, or any sub-corn-
mlttee thereof, that the United States
troops would assist In overthrowing
the queen or establishing the provis
ional government, and, as a matter of
fact, they did not so assist. I can pro
duce witnesses in support, of this sjate
ment. In Wundenburg's statement ho
says when the committee of safety told
Stevens they were not ready to act, he
replied: 'Gentlemen, the troops from
the Boston will land at 5 o'clock, wheth
er you are ready or not.'
"The troops were landed to proi;'t
American citizens and property, and
not to co-operate with the committee
In carrying out tiielr plans. In support
of this statement, I will clto. , First
The troops did not land till Monday
r-.lpht, the ICt.h of January, after the
revolution was In full progress since
the the afternoon of Saturday, the 14th,
during which the committee of safety
was openly organized for the avowed
purpose of overthrowing the queen.
Second There was absolutely no at
tempt at concealment from the govern
ment of the objects and Intentions of
the committee. Third The queen, cab
inets and supporters were utterly de
moralized and became suspicious of
cne another, and devoid of leadership.
Fourth The committee and their sup
porters were united and had ample
force to execute their purpose. They
knew precisely what they wanted, and
proceeded with Intelligent deliberation,
thoroughness, and confidence to' do it.
It Is admitted by all that. the queen
began the revolution at noon on Satur
day by attempting to promulgate the
constitution, such attempt being Imme
diately followed by preparations for
armed resistance, and the-United States
troops landed at 5 o'clock on Monday.
"He calls attention to the revolutions
of 1S87 and 18S9. in which about 20 per
sons wre killed, and concludes: "Such
is the undisputed record of events upon
two occasions when the royalists and
the organizers of the provisional gov
ernment carue into armed conflict, when
there had been no suggestion of sup-.
port to either, side by any outside pow- J
er. Under these circumstances I sub
mit the burden 'of proof, is on those
who claim the leaders of the provision
al government were not In power or
that the government cannot success
fully carry out the revolution In Ha
wall. In reply to the sneer that the
persons taking part In the government
were 'aliens,' I would say that every
man by the lstws of the country Is a
legal voter and that a large propor
tion of them were born In the country,
and, almost without exception, those
who were not born there lived there for
years, owned property there and made
It their homes. They were the men
w ho built up the country commercially,
agriculturally, financially and political
ly, and created and made possible a
civilized government therein. They
were and ; are such men as today are
leading citizens In the most progressive
community of the United States, with
Interests as thoroughly Identified with
the interests of Hawaii as are the in
terests of native and foreign-born citi
zens In similar "communities In this
FIRE WITH FATALITIES.
Beayer, Pa. Nov. 21. At Menil sta
tion, on tho Cleveland and Pittsburg

taken from the ruins but they are so
badly charred that they cannot be Iden
tified. The bodies of James Hughes

A NOTABLE WEDDING. .
Bloomlngton, 111., Nov. 21. At 8
o'clock tonight, at the Second Presby

president, was wedded to Miss Helen

Pantagraph," a republican newspaper

cisco, and are gathering1 In a majority
of the business. There are-prospects of
a lively row.
