THE QUEEN'S EMISSARY.

RECOGNIZED BY BKITIAN.
An Emissary of the Qneon Arrives
On His Way to Washington But

Sax Fk,iisi.o, Cal.. Feb. t. The
Australia did not dock until '. a. in
and it was nearly 1(1 hefore the pas
sengers were ashore. Paul Neil
man, a member of the cx-i(iceiis
Cabinet, was on hoard, on his way
to Washington to lay the deposed
Oiteeu I.iliunkalani's ease before
the State department.
Mr. Neiinian was not inclined to
he communicative, lie said that
owing to the nature of his mission,
he must reserve his remarks until
he reached Washington. "With
Prince David Kawananakoa, the
nephew of the late King Kalakaua,
lam a bearer of dispatches to the
State department at Washington,,
said Mr. Neumaii. "The dispatches,
the nature ot which 1 cannot dis-
lone, state the queen's position in
a manner that 1 am sure will have
considerable weight with the presi
dent and secretay of state."
"What is the quean's dispoition
toward the United States'?" was
"She is an friendly to the United
States as anbody on the island, and
if the United States wants to annex
Hawanii, she is perfectly willing, if
it is done propely. The statement
that the new constitution promul
gated by the queen, and which
precipitated the trouble, would
disfreuchise the whites, is untrue,"
continued the queens emissary.
"The whites on the island would
simply have to become naturalized
citizens, the same as in the United
States, before they could vote. The
queen and the natives objected to
having a lot of foreigners, owing
tlieir allegiance to other countries,
to come in and run their govern
ment for them.
. i ...... i
ii is uiso uniure mat the new
constitution was only the forerun
ner of an attempt to confiscate the
property of foreigners and drive
them from the islands. In these
days a small country like Hawaii
does not treat subject to great
powes like the United States and
Great Britain in that manner."
"Mow do the queen and native re
gard the action of Minister Stevens
in raising the United States flag
and established a protectoraie'r"
"The queen and her loyal sub
jects have no objection if the
United States chooses to act in
such a tnanne'said Mr. Neiiman
with a significant shrug of the
TheHritish minister has recog
nised the provisional government

islands pending further advicss
from his home government. Mat
ters have been moving along very
quiet since the provisional govern
ment took hold. Martial law still
prevails and though no hardships,
thepeople both natives and for
eigners chafe under the restriction.
No arrests have been made, and
only for the presence of armed men
in the streets the usual quiet pre
vails. On the day the Bteamerleft flags
on all public buildings were at half
mast on account of thedrowning of
Minister Stevens' eldest daughter.
K'umors of the intended protec
torate began flying as early as s;M)
on the morning of l-eburary 1. At
Ma a. m: men from the cruiser Hus
ton left the armory, matched into
the government building grounds
and drew up in front of the build,
ing. together with three companies
of volunteers. The proclamation of
the protectorate was read, the
United States Hag was hoisted over
the building and sultited by the
troopsj md the cannon of the Ho-
ton. Owing to the fact that some
foreigners and one or two newspa
pcrs are striving to bring discredit
on the new government, this action
was deemed necessary fur the
quiet of the sland.
As the steamer left all was quiet,
with no indications of any attempt
at resistance to the protectorate.
Messrs. N union and Prince David
were passengers on the steamer, os
tensible m. to Washington to
present the queen's side or the

sed prohibiting the impoi lation of
firearms or explosives, defining
treason and organi.ing the Haw
aiian National guard.

headway against the new govern

Kditor Hush is a native Hawaiian
said: 'The action of Minister
Stevens and Captain Wiltse in
landing armed sailors from the
Hoston was entirely unwarranted.
They were not needed and the
natives bitterlj resented it. The
trouble is that the natives wanted,
to govern their own country and
were opposed by a lot of foreigners,
who were afraid that their interests
would be imperilled. There was
no such danger, for the native
Hawaiian are civilized people and
respect the rights of others. The
action of Minister Stevens in raising
the United States flag and declaring
a protectorate was a high-handed
outrage and is so regarded by the
Hawaiian people. They are perfectly
willing to hold close relations with
the United States, but want to have
a voice as to what those relations
shall be and how they shall come
FIKKH IIY A MOSI.KM MOH.
Cotstantixoi'LK, Feb. 10. The
United States legatioti here has
learned that a Moslem mob burned
the American girls' college in Mar.
sovan, because the director, Dr.
llerrick, was believed to be the in
stigator of offensive political agi
tation. Political placards had beet)
posted on the walls of the college
b'jt Dr. Herrick explained to the
governor that this was done with,
out his consent. The governor was
unwilling or unable to protect the
college, for he made no effort to de
fend it against the mob.
FATAL KISIiASE A.MO.Vi CATTLE.
Hoook, la., Feb. 13. A curious
and fatal disease has broken out
among cattle in the eastern part of
this and western part of Story
counties. It is what has been called
hertofore fool and mouth disease.
but Prof. Stalker, state veterinary
surgeon, has investigated and pro
nounces the disease ergotism. A
herd of fifty cattle owned byJPar-
ley Sheldon of Ames, ami kept on
his farm about a mile out of that
city, was Hix months ago as fine a
bunch of cattle as would be looked
for, and were fast fattening for
market, dozen or more being
ready for beef. Today half of them
are dead, and all but probably half
a dozen of the remainder will have
to be killed. The diseases killing
them is caused by eating ergot, a
a fungus growth on wild rye, which
is on the stalk where the head of
grain should be. It grows on low
ground among wild hay an is eaten
with this by the cattle, causin cir
culation to stop at the extremities
and resulting in gangrene setting
in at the hoof or ankle joints. The
feet die and diop off, the animals
become weak and emaciated before
this occurs. The stilf beards in the
wild rye make the mouth of the
cattle sore, which causes the dis
ease at first to be called foot mid
mouth disease. It is the same dis
ease that was discovered wix or
eight years ago in Kansas. Inves
tigation at that time failed to locate
the cause of the trouble. Prof.
Stalker examined the feed of the
cattle and found this wild rye with
ergot in the wild hay. which is
poisonous to horses and cheep, as
well as cattle, though in a less de
gree. There seems to he no cure
for the cattle once affected. The
poisonous heads of rye are almost
exclusively found in the hay of wet

iiM-i-.iv , ias fen. il. - war is on
in real earnest between the two
houses of the legislature and blows
have been exchanged. There are
now open threats by the populists
ot sensational hostilities and at
any moment there may be some
thing more than the talk which has
been so long indulged in. An at
tempt today by deputy sergeants
at-arnis of the republican house to
arrcfd Hen C. K'ich, clerk of the
populist house, on orders from I hi.1
republicans, caused a conllict dur
ing which two republicans were
knocked down and several men on
both sides were badly bruised by
blows of lists. The encounter oc
curred in the very center of tin
city and created the greatest excite
inent. What will be the outcome of
the trouble no one attempted to
fortell, but it is generally agreed
that tomorrow will witness the
most exciting si cues known in
Kansas for years.
W. F. Hoch of Marion arose in the
republican house at ll:3."i o'clock
this morning and, after reviewing
the history of the muddle, said that
the people of the state were tired
of the waste of time and demanded
that it get down to business. He
knew only two ways to settle the
question cither to knock down or
to go into the courts. He did not
believe in the knockdown policy.
but he was sutisfied the courts
would bring about a settlement.
He thereupon offered a resolution
for the arrest of Hen C, Rich, the
populist clerk, on the charge of dis
turbing the legal house by his ac
tions. The serjeants-at-arms buc
ceeded in finding K'ich, after con
siderable search, in the parlor of
thcDutton hotel, read the warrant
to him and demanded that he ac
company thetn. John W. Hrieden
thal, Fred Haily and others inter
fered in behalf of K'ich and immed
iately there was a great crowd of
people in the hotel. After a brief
struggle the crowed movf d out up
on the street, and with K'ich in cus
tody of both republicans and pop
ulists, up the avenue.
At the corner of Ninth and Kan
sas avenue the republicans tried to
run Rich over to the Copeland
house and a warlike scene followed.
In the struggle Representative
Ryan kuockekone of the republi
can sergeantB-Ht-arins down and
immediately astride of him, while
John W. Hreide'nthiil hail to use
force to get rid of a republican who
was trying to pull him away from
Rich. Other men exchanged blow
but nobody was seriously hurt.
In the end the populists got their
man away and took him to the
governor's office, from where, a few
minutes latter, he was triumphal)
tly escorted into the hall of the
house of representatives, bin wife
holding one arm and Representa
tive Wordsworth of Anderson the
other. His appearance in the hall
was greeted with cheers and clap
ing of hands.

times accepted the position of gen
eral agent, secretary and purchas
ing agent of the pauama company.
He declared that he never nii.de
any disbursements except those he
wasoflicially authorized to make.
He was instructed to appear this
afternoon, with his books and pa
p 'rs. Secretary Colne of the Ameri
can commission testified that he
turned over his books h (jeneral
Hristow six months ago.
Nathan Appletou of Hoston was
the first witness called alter the re
cess, in i'.i h received a letter
from De I.esseps asking him to ac-
ct pt the position of general agent
of the canal company in this conn-
try. His idea was that the share of
the company should be placed on
sale by the national batiks of this
country. He estimated the cost of
the canal at ifJDO.tKM.ajf). In issi) a
subscription for fiM.OOO.OtX) of the
stock was opened in this country
and was a great success. The
amount was covered three times
over. At that time he had not

Cleveland officially announced the
names of four members of hi
cabinet through the United Pres
this evening. They are as follows:
Walter O. Grcshaiu of Illinois,
secretary of state.
John (1. Carlisle of Kentucky,
secretary of the treasury.
Daniel S. Luinont of New York,
secretary of war.
Wilson S. Itissetl of Huthtlo post-lllastes-geneial.
On making the announcements,
Mr. Cleveland Haiti: "There is no
need of any mystery in regard to
the cabinet and it is useless to
speculate und indulge in guess
work. I shall make no secret of the
matter, but shall announce the
names of gentlemen selected to fill
the positions as fast as I receive
theiracceptance and permission to
make the matter public." t
Mr, Cleveland would say nothing
in regard to the other positions or
the men who have been mentioned
in connection with them. It is
evident that Hoke Smith, Hilary A.
Herber and others who have been
mentioned me still under con
sideration. A conference which will
probably Kettle Mr. Hoke Smith's
chances one way or the other will
beheldatMr Cleveland's office in
New York some day this week.
Senator John Martin of Kansas
and Dr, S. J. Neely of the same state
had a long talk with Mr. Cleveland
today. They put in a Mrong claim
for a representative in the cabinet
from Kansas. Senator Martin urged
the selection of ex Governor (. W.
(Hick and left I.akewood in a
happy frame of mind as to the
chances of his candidate.
Henry Waterman and wife of Liu-
coin came down Tuesday mnminir,
returning in the evening.
From whisperings here and
there among financial men it is safe
to gues that one of these days the
news-papers of this town will have
some big news to print about the
organization of a bank to fill the
avoid left by the collapse of the
Capital National. One underground
report has it th it some of the "big
men" of the Hurlington railway
are going to back the hank heavily,
and that it will be a larger bank
in every way than any now in the
field. Nothing more delinate can
be given than this rumor which
may or may not be founded on
fact. Lincoln Journal
