THE TKIIH ABOUT HAWAII.
At lu.it the whole truth about the
Hawaiian revolution has beeu told,
and Lorria A. Thurston, the Hawaii
an minister to the United Stated, has
told It. Part of the truth ha been
had from the statement of John L.
Stevens, who was our minister at the
Islands when the change In govern
ment took place, but h spoke
merely as an outsider, who knew
nothing about the affair until lt waa
under way. Thurston, on the other
hand, talks as an Insider, a leading
resident in the Island and a prime
mover in the' UDrislnir which nub-
verted the monarchy and est.tbll-hed
the republic. Thurston declares that
the American marines did not land
until Monday, January 1 last Jan
uary when the revolutionary move
ment had been in progress two days,
when most of the qun's cabinet
had virtually deserted her, and w hen
her overthrow was seen by herself
and her supporters to be Inevitable.
The date of the landing of the ma
rines agrees with that furnished by
There are other points In Thur
ston's revelations which Stevens
probably had no knowledge of at the
time, and which, as an impartial
outsider and a representative of
another government, he could not
have a deep concern in. Briefly
stated, tlio points referred to are
these: Tho queen's government had
full Information of the revolutionary
movement from the beginning, and
the revolutionists knew this and
made no attempt to conceal their
purpose; the quisMi's suporters were
discordant and "rattled": the revo-
lullonirtts were well organized, had
looked over the ground carefully tie
fore acting, had an armed force at
their disposal which they knew
could quickly accomplish the work
they had in hand, and were masters
of the situation. This is the case as
Thurston presents it. and he makes
thoso points so clear that they will
carry conviction to all unprejudiced
minds. The duv after the arrival of
the murines the provisional govern
ment was proclaimed and the queen
deposed, but the result would tin-
loubtedly have been the same If not
an annex! until iieionglng lo Die
United Stutes had liceii nenrer to
the Islands than San Francisco.
Thurston's declarations dispone
conclusively and finally of the
assertions of commissioner Blount
that Minister Stevens and the Amer
ican forces had any hand in either
starting the Insurrection or of bring
ing It to success. The men who or
ganized the revolution represented
the business Interests and practically
the entire white population of the
slands. The great bulk of the men
who could I x relied on to fight in a
crisis were on their side and com
mitted to a subversion of the mon
archy. They knew the cowardice
and corruption of the regime with
which they had to deal, and they
were serenely confident of the result.
The queen ami such of her officials
as did not fly at tho first note of alarm
were panic-stricken ar.d sought to
make terms with the revolutionists
which would bind the queen not to
make the attack Tin the liberties of the
people w hich she contemplated. The
queen's authority was apparently so
obnoxious to the people that a sue-
cesHful uprising was certain at uy
time w henever half a dozen of the
principal citizens of Honolulu should
give the word. It is easy to see that
if she were to be allowed to resume
power ahe could not maintain herself
except by the aid of tho armed forces
of the United States or some other
nation, and the people of this country
are determined that such aid shall not

THE (iLIT OF CASH.
The nmouut of idle money at the
country's financial center is greater
than was ever known in the past.
Last Saturday's statement of the
banks belonging to the New York
Clearing House Association show
that those institutions at that time
had a reserve amounting to $71,0a),.
000 more than the sum which by
law they are required to hold against
deposits. This item Increased to the
extent of over $3,000,000 in the week
ending on that day, and has been
growing steadily for about three
months past. In June and July,
during the s?riod of the punlc, -w hen
hoarding was the order of the day
milling the ignorant or timid, the
banks of New York, as well as the
rest of the country, were heavily
drawn on, and ttie reserve was
forced down below the legal line,
where it remained for four or five
weeks. At one time the defllclt In
this item reached 116,000,000. In
August, however, the turning point
was reached, and since then the re
serve has lieen expanding.
Once only in the past did the
surplus in the New York banks close
ly approach the present figures. That
was in August, 1K85, when the
amount nein in excess or tho -'o per
er cent, requirement at one time
reached Hbout $ii 1,700,000, which is
more than $i;,000,000 below the prt a-
ent total. Then, as now, the expan
sion was preceeded by a severe finan
cial disturbance. In May. 1884.
Wall street was xhaken up for a few
days more seriously than It was this
year, but the effects of the convulsion
were virtually confined to Wall
street, aud did not, as has been the
case in Is93, extended thoroughout
the whole country. That was the
time when two national banks went
under, when several others were in a
shaky condition, when the clearing
house issued loan certificates and
when the firm of (Jrant fc Ward col
lapsed. For a few days amind tho
middle of May, 1881, Wall street had
a scare such as it Ims not experienced
since the swamping of the firm of
Jay Cooke A Company, under its
load of Northern Pacific in Septem
ber nine years la-fore, precipitated
the panic of H73.
In the case of 14,11 in this and
as in all other cases of financial con
vulsion, the time of panic and demor
alization was followed by a period of
liquidation and depression, when
confidence languished, enterprise was
dead, and money, finding no profit
able employment, drifted to New
York, the point where the ultimate
reserve cash of the country Is always
held. But while fourteen months
In lssl-ft were required lo bring the
surplus of the banks in that city up
to near 0.",000,nno three months
or less have suftlced to place the
fund above that this year. This cir
cumstance gives rise to tfie qui"stltn
of how far this hoard of cash is likely
to go. The current of money which
is drifting to the New York banks,
as shown by a comparison of their
recent weekly statements, hows no
sign of diminution. The increase in
the past two weeks is nearly as great
as it was in the same length of time
in Octolier or September. It may
yet reach the I'JO.onO.OOO or floo,
000,000 mark before the trade revival
which everybody looks for In the
latter part of the winter or early
spring again creates the demand
which will put all the country's
available cash in circulation. Globe

THE FAIL OF (iltESIIAM.
The decline and Tall of Walter 1J.
Oresham is one of the mo-t atlietic
circumstances of our ns.t-nt political
history. For seven or eight years
he was one of the most conspicuous
and attractive figures in American
public life. He was in lss.7 and lS-sS
the Idol of a Mwcrful element of the
republican party, and hud hiv-ts of
friends iu tho democracy and in the
labor organizations w hlch were the
predecessors of the jiopullst In
politics. Almost as many localities
as contested for the honor of Homer's
birthplace claimed him as a son. In
the convention of lss, which nomi
nated Harrison, he stixxl .second in
the voting at the outset, having 1 1 1
votes, on the Hr-t ballot, as compared
with L'L'tt for John Sherman, the only
man who led him, while Harrison,
who eventually carrhsl off the prize,
stood fifth on the ballot. On the
third ballot (irer.hu in received 123
votes, which was his highest Mill,
but he remained in the contest until
the eight und last bill lot.
But Oresham did not lose bis
prominence or o:cney by his defeat
In the convention of Ihsh. JI still
remained a picturesque and engag

regard of the third party and ou that
of the sentimental element of the
democracy increased or diminished.
By the fots of his party his defeat
was attributed to capitalistic in
fluences and to conspiracies among
the monopolists, and he became
especially dear to the class which
sees in every rich man a monster and
an enemy of society. While Ntill
retaining the respect of his old sup
porters he attracted the devotion of

indignity, however, had he not iu
an evil moment, made his rehabilita

prejudice against ex-President Harri

wrecked his political fortunes.
To this extremity malevolent fate

nomination to any other Imsirtant

The ojierat ion consisted in remov

the water they emptied their revol

He wrote their names on his shirt
