The President of the Hawaiian Pro
visional Government, in His Reply
to the Impudent Demand of Ameri
can Minister Willis, by the Strong;
Dignity of His Unanswerable Logic,
Literally Pulverizes the Conspiracy
of Self-Righteous Grover Cleveland
to Put the Pagan Hawaiian Queen
Back on Her Dissolute Throne A
Condensation of the Voluminous
Correspondence Sent to Congress
Wasiunotom, Jan. 14.
Uj urday sent ti couuress the emu
p plots correspondence with Min
J tter Willis, coveyed from Hono
lulu by the cutter Corwln H with
held one dispatch, dntcd Oil 8, 18!)-'
The message makes no comments. To
msko the Hawaiian story consecutive,
it is necessary to begin with dispatch
which Minister Willis, on Nov. lO.sent
to Secretary Greshaui, but which the
president in his previous message,
withheld from congress. The dispatch
dencubes a couftreuea held bv Willie
with ex-Queen Lilioukalani, Nov. Ill,
and says:
I made known to her the president's sin
cere regret that.tliroigh (ha unauthorized
intervention of the dotted States, sue had
been obliged to furrender her sovereignty,
and Ml hope that, with her consent and
co-operaiiou, the wrong done to her and
her people might he redressed. To this
she bowed her acknowledgment. I then
said to her: "The president expects and
believes that when re instated you will
show forgiveness and magnanimity; that
you will wish to be the ipieen of nlltho
people, both native and foreign born: that
you Will make haste to secure their love
ami loyalty, and to establish peaee,frieud
eliip and good government.''
To this she made no reply. After wait
ing a moment I continued: ''The presi
dent not only tenders you his sympathy
but wishes to help you. Before fully
making known to you his purposes, I de
eiro to know whether you are willing to
answer certain questions which it is my
duty to ask?" Sue answered: "1 am will
in?." I then asked her: "Should you be
restored to the throne would you grant
full amnesty ns to iife ami property to all
those persoue who have been or who are
now in the proviBionnl government or
who have been instrumental in tho over
throw of your government ?"
LiunoKAi.ASi is bloodthirsty.
She hesitated a moment and then slowly
and calmly answered: "There are certain
laws of my government by wuich I shad
abide. My decisions would be as the law
directs, that such persons should be be
headed and their property confiscated to
the government." I then Baid, repeating
very distinctly her words; "It is your
feeling that these people should be be
headed and their property confiscated"
She replied: "It is."
Tho remainder of this dispatch is de
voted to comments on the Hawaiian
leader?. Willis, in this, asked that
Blount's report be "withheld for the
present " ho as not flfexcite the Ha
waiians. On Dec. B ' Paramour'' Wil
son saw Willis and gave him a paper
containing a method of procednse for
reinstating the qnsen. It ignored
Americans and gave English advisers
of the queen the supr-macy. Accom
panying this dispatch was aa outline of
the procedurs to be observed by the
Royalist party in tho event of the
queen's restoration. This included the
landing of murines from the United
States warships and the formal demand
on the part of the United States minis
ter for the resignation of President
Dole and the Provisional government.
On Dec. 18 and 10 Willis saw Lil
iuokalani at her home. She then con
sented to forego the pleasure of be
heading Dole and his coterie, bnt in
sisted npon banishing them and con
fiic tting their property. Willis told
her that President Clevelaud would
try to restore her only npon the con
dition of absolute and unreserved am
This ultimatum brought the ex
quean to terms. She afterward sent
Willis a signed paper of which this is
the gist:
I must not feel vengeful to any of my
people. If I am restored, by the United
states 1 must forget myself and remember
only my dear people and my couutry. I
must forgive and forgot the past, permit
ting no proscription or punishment of any
one, but trusting that all will hereafter
work together in pence aud friendship for
the good and for the glory of our beautiful
aud once happy land.
Willis' next letter, dated Deo. 20.
tells of his visit to President Dole and
his "request' that Dole abdicate. Next
comes Dole's reply, which is given in
full, and which is the star feature of
the entire correspondence. It expresses
regret at the failure of tho annexation
trenty to meet with the approbation of
the present American administration,
quotes W. L. Marcy, William H Sew
ard, Hamilton Fish and James (J.
Dlaine ns favorable to annexation, aud
adds: "We shall, therefore, coptiuue
the project of political union with the
United States as a conspicuous feature
of our foreign policy, confidently hop
ing that sooner or later it will be
crowned with success to the lasting
benefit of both countries." The presi
dent continued:
We do not recognize the right of the
president of the United States to Interfere
in our domestic affairs. Huch right could
be conferred upon him by the act of this
government and by that alone, or it could
be acquired by conqueBt. This I under
stand to be the American doctrine, con
spicuously announced from time to time
by the authorities of your government.
President Jackson said in bis message to
congress in 183(1, "Th uniform policy and
practice of the United States is to avoid
all InterferanoS in disputes which meroly
relate to the internal government of other
nations, and eventually recognize the au
thority of the prevailing party without
reference to tho merits of tho original con
troversy." My position is, briefly, this: If tho
American forces illegally assisted tho
revolutionists in the establishment of the
provisional government, that government
is not responsible for the wrong doing. It
Whs purely a private matter for discipline
between the United statos government
and its own officers. There is, 1 submit,
no precedent in International law for the
theory that such action of the American
troops has confer red upon the United
States authority over the internal
affairs of this government. Should
it be true as you bare suggest
ed, that the American government
made itself responsible to the queen, who
it is alleged, lo.-t her throne through such
action, i hat is not a matter for mo to dis
cuss, except to submit that, if such bo tho
case, it is a matter for the Americau gov
ernment to settlo between them. This
government, a recognized sovereign pow
er, equal in authority with the United
States government, and enjoying diplo
matic relations with it, cannot be destroyed
by it for tho lake o? discharging tho obli
gations to the ex-queen. Upon these
grouuds, Mr. Minister, in behalf of my
government I resMetfally protest against
(he usurpation of its authority ns sug
gested by tho language of your comniuuir
Though the provisional government is
far from being a great power aud could
not long resist the forces of the United
States in a hostile attack, we deem our
position to be impregnable under legal
precedents, under the principles of diplo
matic intercourse and in the forum of con
science. We have dono your government
no wrong- no charge of discourtesy is or
can be bro 'lit against us. Uur only issue
with your L mle has been that, because
we revered l institutions of civil liberty,
we have desii d to have them extended to
our own distracted country, and because
we honor its llag and deeming that its
beneficent and authoritative presence
would he l'orthe best interests of all our
people, we have stood ready to adil toyour
country a new star to its glory and to con
summate a union which we believed would
be ns much for tho benefit of your country
as ours. If this is an offense, we plead
guilty to it.
I am instructed to inform yon, Mr. Min
ister, that the provisional government of
tho Hawaiian Islands reepectfully'and uu
hesitaliugly declines to entertain the pro
position, of the President of the United
States that it should surrender its author
ity to the ex-queen. Tho answer is made
not only upon the grounds heretofore set
forth bnt upon our sense of duty and loy
alty to the brave men whoso commissions
we hold, who hnve faithfully stood by us in
the hour of trial and whoso will is the
ouly eartMy authority we recognize. We
cannot betray tho sacred trust which
represents the cause of Christian civiliza
tions in the interests of the whole people
of these islands.

President Cleveland, through Secre
tary GreBhnm, closes the correspond
ence by a letter of instructions to Wil
lis, dated Jan. 12 last, in which the ad
ministration seeks to combat Dole's
overwhelming broadside. The sub
stance of this letter is as follows:
The president sincerely regrets thnt the
provisional government refuses to acqui
esce in the conclusion which his sense of
right and duty aud a due regard for our
national honor constrained him to reach
and submit as a measure of justice to the
people of the Hawaiian islands and their
deposed sovereign. While it is true that
the provisional government, was created
to exist ouly until the islands were au
nexed to the .United States, that the
queen finally but reluctantly surrendered
to an armed force of this govern
ment illegally quartered in Honolulu
and representatives of the provisional
government (which realiZ'd its itnpo
teucy and was anxious to get control
of the queen's means of defense) assured her
that if she would surrender, her case would
be subsequently considered, by the United
States, tho president never claimed that
such action constituted him an arbitrator
in a technical s-use, or authorized him to
act in thnt capacity netweon the provis
ional government anil the queen. You
made no such claim when you acquainted
that government with tho president's de
cision. The solemn assurance given to the
jueen has not been referred to as authority
for the president to act as arbitrator, hut
as a fact material to a just determination
of the president's duty In tho premises.
In the note which the minister of for-
elim affairs address. 1 to you on the S8d
ultimo it is stated, in effect, that even if
the constitutional government was sub
verted by the action of the American
minister and an invasion by a militnry
force of thn United Statos, the president's
authority is limited to dealing with our
own unfaithful officials and that he can
tako no stops lookiug to a correction of the
wrong dyne. The'presi lent entertains n
different view of his responsibility and
duty. The subversion of the Hawaiian
government by an abuse of the authority!
rtf Mia I'm....1 .a it-oo in ntotn ........
of international law aud required the pres
ident to disavow and condemn tho act of
our offending officials and within the limits
of his constitutional power to endeavor to
restore the lawful authority.
The president thereupon "submitted the
subject to tho more extended powers and
wide discretion of congress, adding tho as
surance that he wouM be gratified to co
operate in any legitimate plan which
might be devised for a solution of the prob
lem consistent with American honor, in
tegrity and morality. Your reports Bhow
that on further reflection the queen gave
her unqualified assent in writing to tho
conditions suggested, hut that the provis
ional government refuses to arquieso in the
president's decision. The matter now
being in the hands of congress, the presi
dent will keep that body fully advisod of
the situation, and will lay before it from
time to time the reports received by yon,
including your No. 3 heretofore withheld,
and all instructions sent to you. In the
meantime, while keeping the department
fully informed of the course of events, yo i
will, until further notice, consider that
your special instructions upon this subject
have been fully complied with.

EBATE and not action will mark
the proceedings in both houses
of congress this week. In the
house the1 feature will bo the
tariff debat", and in the senate the bill
to repeal the federal election laws.
The week is expected to open in the
senate to consider the Horn blower
nomination This case may occupy the
attention of the body in executive ses
fion for two days Otherwise, .Senator
Gray, of Delaware, will call up the
elections repeal bill Tuesday. The bill
will be made the unfinished business
aud be kept before the senate until
passed or defeated,
Some time during the v'ok coming
events will cast their shadow b-jfore in
the shape of a tariff speech to be de
livered by Senator Gallinger, of New
Hampshire. Of course there is the
always present possibility of resolu
tions and speeches on the subject of
Hawaii during the morning hours of
the week, and this probability is' re
duced almost to a certainty by tho re
cently published correspondence.
Tariff will be almost exclusively
talked of iu the bouse this week. The
general debate ended with the remark
able demonstration of Saturday night,
when the ball was thrown open to the
public and in the presence of more peo
ple probably than ever gathered within
its walls before, Representative Bryan
delivered his speech of two hours aud
forty minutes in favor of the Wilson
bill, advocating it as an approach .to
free trade. Beginning with tomor
row's session the house will take up the
consideration of the bill under the five
minute rule, and the paragraphs will
be open to amendment.
Already the desk of Chairman Rich
ardson is cov-rel with (amendments
that will bo proposed by various mem
bers, who want to make sure that their
propositions shall receive proper atten
tion. The bill will be thus discussed
ami open to amendment this week and
next, and then a vote taken on its pass
age Monday, Jan. 29. Night sessions
will be held.
The scheme of internal revenue will
be reported to the house Thursday
next by Chairman Wilson, as an inde
pendent, separate measure. Then
friendB of the income tax proposition
will endeavor to attach it to the pend
ing bill, and and upon this motion
may como one of the most interesting
struggles of the debate unless the mat
ter is settled in caucus.

Tariff B11L
WASHINGTON, Jan. I t. The majority
members of the committee on ways
and means, with the exception of Mr.
Cockrau, were in session several hours
today considering proposed amend
ments to the Wilson bill to be offered
by the committee. A number of
changes were agreed upon.
One makes two classes of cigarettes
tobacco and paper. The rate upon the
former was fixed at 7o cents a thousand,
while that, upon paper cigarettes was
left at $1 50 The reason for this action
as explained, was that the paper, cigar
ettes are made by machinery, while the
tobacco cigarettes are produced largely,
if not entirely, by hand.
The restriction upon the free ndmis
sion of books, engravings, photographs,
bound or unbouud etchings, m ips, or
charts, that they shall not have been
printed or bound within the twenty
years uext perceding the date of impor
tation, was stricken out. It was also
decided to admit hydrographu; charts
for the uso of mariners f roe of duty.

Three Poisoners Strung Up and
Filled with Bullets by Impromptu
Organization of Avengers.
ltrssELL,Kan,, Jan. 11. At 1 o'clock
thu morning there was a terrible ex
hibition of prairie justice here and
three men met death at the hands of
Judge Lynch. No such outbreak of
the old time swift Trontier )OIUC0 DM
been witnessed iu Kansas for years. The
mob was one of. the quietest aud most
determined that ever came together.
It was a fiercely earnest and wholly
heartless mob also, for the victims were
not giveu even time to pray until they
Were dropped into eternity.
The victim! were J. Q Burton, Wil
liam Oay and the latter' son, John Gay,
who had lived togethsr on Burton's
farm. They were confessedly guilty
of the murder of Fred. Diuniny last
July. Dummy lived with T. W. Bur
ton, seven miles north and last July he
disappeared. Burton bad his team and
even wore some of bis clothes, but
said he had gone to Oklahoma with
youg Gy, Gay returned iu a
short time and on close question
ing confessed that Burtou had pois
oned Dihniny. The elder Gay at
tempted to point out the place of bur
ial but failed. Htrtou tnen made a
confession that the Gays killed him,
and Thursday took the sheriff to a
cornfield in a ravlne,where the body,
decomposed and mutilated, was found.
Indignation ran high and it was with
difficulty that the men oould be gotteu
to the jail.
Last night they were taken from jail
and conducted to a bridge just outside
of town. The ropes were ready aud
one was put around the neck of each of
tiie meu and tied to the stringers.
This was no timo given for
prayers or pleading, but at a
signal all three were pushed off the
edge aud droppod eight or ten feet
with all the precision of a professional
hanging. To make sure of carrying
out their purpose, the mob tired two
shots into each body, although death
came quickly by the rope.

Philadelphia, Jan. 14 in response
to a call by the United Labor league
for a mass meeting to tako mtasurt-s
for the amelioration of the present
condition ot the workingmeo of Phila
nelphia, a large Innmber of delegat'B
aud members of the various trade

and CallowhiU streets this afternoon.
A number of speeches were made by
prominent members of various trades
Although their views as to the causes
of the present depression and the best
means of improviug the workingmen
differed, the general sentiment of all
the speakers was that thorough organ
ization and the formation of an inde
pendent political party was the only
successful means of attaining the de
sired end. Organization under one
central body was looked upon as the
first ami most important step to be
taken, and the following preamble and
resolution wns adopted without a dis
senting voice:

The Danbury Hat Manufacturers
Stand Firm Against the Various
Local Organizations of Labor.
DANBURY, Conn.. Jan II The com-
nittees from the Hat Makers' aud Hat
nishers' unions, who have been
clothed with absolute power, met a
committee from the manufacturers'
dissociation last night and held a con
ference lasting three hours, which was
adjourned till !i p. m. Monday. The
Trimmers' union had been ignored by
the lubor leaders, and the 1,000 girls
that compose it held an indiguatiou
meeting last night and clamored for
representation on the committee that
is empowered to try to settle matters.
They acted so threateuiugly that they
were given permission to be repre
sented, aud a committee of forty girls
will attend to the iuturests of the
Trimmers' union.
The Coners and Slippers union also
held a meeting last night aud chose a
committee of forty to go before the
manufacturers. The four committees,
each of which contain forty members,
were at work tod-iy on the concessions
that they will grant the manufactur
ers iu order to bring about an adjust
ment of the trouble. They will pre

manufacturers will give them due
consideration and in reply wilt tell
the unions what they are willing to do.
