NEW YORK , Jan. 24. There Is reason to
believe that the moral influence of the United
States will support Great Britain in Its
efforts to keep Ch'aa open to the commerce
of the world , avero the Washington corre
spondent of the Herald. The only active
stops which the admlrlclratlon will proba
bly take In the matter will bo to enter
Into negotiations with Germany respecting
the treatment ot American ships entering
Klao end bitch other ports In Chlni as
may bo eelzed In the future by Russia or
"If China has leased Klao Chan on the
condition that It shall bo opened by Ger
many aij a Chlneao port , then It will not bo
necessary for the president to take the
steps In the rratter , " said an official of the
administration "It will mean that the com
merce of nil nations will be allowed unrc-
Btrlctcd entry thereto. If , as wo believe ,
however , Klao Chau should be leased to
Germany without condltlono , then Germany
would have the right aaid will undoubtedly
oxercUo It , to put lei operation port and
customs regulations such as are now In force
In Gcriran homo ports. The United States
cannot make any objection to the extension
of such regulations to Klao Chau In such
an event , for It will bo German cell to all
Intents and purposes.
"As In Hamburg , however , the government
expect fiom Germany any privileges
that may be granted to any other nation , and
will , therefore , reap the advantages which
Great Britain's attitude against the shutting
of the Chlncso door to the commerce of the
world will give. This Is required , In ac
cordance with the articles of the treaty bo-
tvveen Ptussla and the United States of May
1 , 1823 , which provides'If either party
shall hereafter grant to anv other nation any
{ articular favor of navigation or commcroe ,
it shall Immediately become common to the
other party , freely where It Is freely granted

Second , China had promised to pay 3,000

Third , as atonement for the deaths of the

place where the murders vvero committed.
China grants CO,000 taeli for each chimli
and ( rro altcs. Another 24,000 laols is as-
elgncd fur building seven ecouro residences
for the Catholic prefecture of Tsao-Chott-Ku.
Further a special Impel lal edict Is issued for
( ho protection ot German mlialotis.
"China , " llarca YOU Buelow explained ,
"has thus cou piled with all our diunuuds.
ABor regard ! the royal yrotecllou
tablets as immensely advantageous. The
privilege Is rarely accorded and will consid
erably heighten the prcstlgo of the Catholic
missionaries in the cjcs of the Chinese.
"Tho German government believes It has
done all neccfsary for the prevention of
further outrtgca. The best guarantees ,
however , are the permanent presence , under
the treaty , of German men-of-war , and a
garrison at Klao Chau , by which It Is hoped
tlio authorities and population of China will
not again forget that no wrong done to Ger
man subjects will be allowed to pass unpun
ished. "
Baron von Buelow , In concluding , said the
negotiations with rcfcrcnco to the construc
tion of ralluajs and the workings of coal
mines wcro proceeding favorably. The gov
ernment chose Klao Chau , because it was
not too near the Trench and British rpheren
of Interest , or Russia's sphere of power.
Klao Chau was not an cldorado , but expert
judges predicted for It a sound and steady
commercial advancement.

Richard Crocker , brother of the manager of
the Cork & South Coast railway , In arbi
trarily dismissing elgnalmcn , has provoked
a etrlko on his o\vn railroad which threat
ens to spread throughout all the Irish rail
ways. The men allege that the signalman
was dismissed solely because he had taken a
prominent part In laying the grievances of
the order recently before Manager Crocker ,
and they went on a strike today at an hour's
notice. Tlio employes of other Irish rail
ways have been notified and will strike
rather than handle any goods coming by
Crocker's road unless the signalman is

among Irish railroad men as the hardest
and most domineering of taskmasters and
trouble is always simmering between him
and his men.

SAN FRANCISCO. Jan. 24 The splendor
of the celebration of the golden jubilee of
California , which began , today , Is not likely
to bo surpassed for many a } car to come
The entire state has gladly responded to the
appeals of the miners , pioneer and native
sons and daughters , and from now until the
close of the carnival week San Francisco
will bo the niccca toward which all travel
west of the Sierras will be turned. Nor
can the line bo drawn at the eastern border
of the state , for.from Nevada , Utah and the
country as far cast as Denver men who
( list found fortune In the placers of Cali
fornia have already returned hero to assist
In the exercises commemorative of the
fiftieth anniversary of the discovery of gold
by Marshall at Coloma , near the old fort
erected by General Sutler. Hut the par
ticipants in this week of gaiety are not
confined to the oldtlmcrs. It Is the younger
clement , the children of the men of ' 49 ,
that by their enthusiasm and monetary con
tributions have assured In advance the HUC-
cess of one of the most unique and charac
teristic demonstrations over projected In
any part of the union.
With the lining of the sun this morning
the celebration was heralded by the booming
of the guns at the various forts wliie-a llr.o
the shores of the bay at the entrance-
Golden Gate The salute commenced with
a wclcomo of twenty-one guns from the big
twelve-Inch guns at Fort Polut. This was
followed In quick succession by the guns at
Forts Mason , Alcatraz and Angel Island ,
Though rather too cold to allow of stand
ing still In the early morning , the weather
was bright and bracing , and as the day
progressed It became much warmer , and the
conditions were perfect when the hour for
the bis p.rade arrived.
Punctually at 10 30 o'clock ona of the
most Interesting parades over seen In tliib
state marched through the streets , which
weio gaily decorated with flags and bunting ,
and thronged with people from cvory part
of the state At least 60,000 strangers poured
Into the city last ulght and this morning
and half as many more from thetovns

from the ferry to VanNess avenue , was

the vicinity of the Ualdwln hotel v\hcro a
mammoth arch had been erected across the
street , -was a dense mass of humanity.
Every window along the route of march and
many roofs of the buildings vvero pressed
into service by tbo sightseers. The parade
was divided Into fifteen dlvlulcns and it U

ono of the strangest things of these strang
times that my position upon the Hawaiian
question should bo misunderstood , " That I
the way cx-Presldcot Cleveland cxprcssci
himself when shown the statement of Sena
tor Morgan relative to his position In th
senate today. In order that there shouli
bo no misunderstanding of his position 01
the part of the public , ho authorized the fol
lowing statement :
"I do not bcltovo In discussing matters o
this kind as a private citizen. I do no
care , however , to bo misrepresented. I wll
therefore say that ever since the question o
Hawaiian annexation was presented I have
been utterly and constantly opposed to It
The first thing I did after my Inatiguratloi
In March , 1893 , was to recall from the federal
oral senate an annexation treaty then pcnd
ing before that body.
"I regarded , and still regard , the pro
posed annexation of these Islands as no
only opposed to our national policy , but a
a perversion of our national mission. The
mission of our nation Is to build up ant
make a greater country of what wo already
have , Instead of annexing Islands. I did no
suppose an } ono In public llfo mlsunderstooi
my position In this matter.
"It had boon said that I was partial to the
former monarchy and desired to sec It re
stored In order that I might treat with I
for annexation. How coiild I have had eucl
an Idea It I regarded annexation as contrary
to our national policy ? The same answer
can bo made to the statement that my op
position to Hawaiian annexation was basci
merely on dissatisfaction with the treaty
pwidlnc before the senate at the tlmo of my
second Inauguration. I was opposed to an
noxatlon as such.
"In regard to the Hawaiian monarchy
aside from any question of annexation , am
without harboring any previous designs o
restoring that monarchy , I Investigated the
relations of our representatives to Its over
throw. Tills Investigation satisfied me that
our Interference in the revolution of 1S9I
was disgraceful. I would gladly , therefore
for the sake of our national honor and for
our country's fair name , have repaired thai
w rong.
"In regard to the Cuban question. My posi
tion was fully made known , to congiess In
the various messages In which the subject
was discussed. I was opposed to the recog
nition of the belligerency ofi the Island am'
my position was perfectly well Known. In
deed , so very unmistakable- m > views on
the subject that I was time and again
threatened by frenzied men dnd women with
dire calamities to be visited upon mjself
and children because of what they saw fit
to assert as my enmity to. the Cuban cause.
' 'My position on nil the "questions vvero
made perfectly clear In the official docu
ments of the tlmo and there can bo no pos-
slblo mistake.
"It Is very difficult for iho to understand
Senator ( Morgan's evidently wrong Impres
sions in regard to myrposltlon. Indeed , It
Is ono of the strangest things of these strange
times that my position on these matters
should bo called into question. "

WASHINGTON , Jan. 24. Within forty-
clght houis , for the first tlmo slnco the
Insurrection broke out In Cuba three > car < i
ago , the United States Roverment will bo
represented in tho.harbor of Havana by a
war ship. The decision to send the Unlteil
States steamer Maine was finally reached
at a special meeting this morning between
President McKlnlcy , Secietary Long , As
sistant Secretary Day , Attorney General
McKenna and General Miles , and it Is n ,
striking fact tint with the exception ot the
cecrotnry of the navy and the attornoj gen-t
oral not a member of the cabinet know ,
of the president's Intention to take this
action. It Is not denied that tome suchf
move has been long in contemplation , as
Is evidenced In the following statement ot
.Assistant Secretary Day , made this nftor-
iioon :
"Tlio sending of the Maine to Havuia
simply means the resumption of friendly ;
naval relations with Spain. H Is cuotomaiy ;
with naval vessels of frlendlj nations to
pass In and out of the harbors of other
countries with whom they nro at peace ,
and British and German war vessels visit
Havana. Thla Is no new move. The presi
dent has Intended to do It for some tlmo ,
but something has happened to postpone It.
Iho orders of the Maine mean nothing moro
than I have nald , and there Is nothing ;
alarming In them. The Spanish minister
heio is Informed of what is going on aml _
so far as I know has not made the sllghtc'st'
objection to It. "
"Further , " Mr. Day said , "Consul General
Leo had not sent for a war nhlp.f This
statement shqws that the move wna made
deliberately , and it could not havo. been' '
taken If there were serious apprehension ot'
Its results in Havana. "
The general belief here , however , Is that
In Madrid , rather than In any Cuban town ,
Is trouble to be looked for If thcro should
bo any misapprehension of the action of the
government In sending the Maine to Havana.
The temper of the opposition newspapers In
the Spanish capital haa been thrcateiilij ; fop
some time , and It may require Iho strong
hand of the news censor to supptc&s utter
ances that would lead to noting.
Admiral Slcnrd's inleis wcro not mule
public In their tovt , but it was stated that
their substance wcro made public In the
utteianccs of Secretary Long The orders
were not sent direct to the Maine for tlio
icason that It Is now attached to the squad
ron , and the naval regulations require nil
buch orders to go through the superior offi
cer. Theio la Bomo question whether the
telegram reached the admlial before ho
railed with his squadron from Key West for
Toitugas The belief IB that It did not , but
this will make little difference In the pro
gram , Inasmuch as the telegram will doubt-
IP ° S bo sent to the admiral by ono of the
lorjiciio boats or by other means
The details of the Maine's movements
are believed to be left to the airangonient
of Admlial Slcard , 'but ' It li thought that
the ship , which put to sea with the squadron ,
will return to Key West before going to
The German ships to which Afcslstant Sec
retary Day referoil aie the Chai lotto and
the Gcycr , both training ships and not oC
formidable tjpo , though .0110 sufficed to settle -
tlo hastily the recent Haytlan difficulty.
Their touching at Havana Is not believed to
bo significant , as their cruise was arranged :

ships are duo at Charleston , S , C. , early la

For four yeans ho was chief of the hydro-
graphics ofilco and by his energy brought the
ofilco to a high standout. Ho was lucky
to get BO Important a ship as the Maine ,
considering his actual rank , which IH that
