WASHINGTON-, March 20.—The Hawaiian minister, Mr. Thurston, still declines to discuss the report that Secretary Gresham has asked his government to recall him. He maintains wh;it is officially known as "diplomatic silence" with respect to the matter, and politely but firmly refuses either to deny or ailirm the correctness of thl storv. BLOWN TO ATOMS. MINISTER THUKSTON. taken a shape to warrant a, positive assertion as coming from unquestionable authority that the official presence of Minister Thurston was no longer de- eirable in Washington. No Or1icl»L Announcement, Positive public official utterance on the matter of this government's request for Mr. Thurston's recall is not forthcoming at this moment; but enough is known to justify the assertion that such request has been made and the impression is prevalent that a correspondence between tho department and the minister actuated the demand and hastens a request for its early compliance. While consistent with the reticence maintained at the state department in this matter, no public reference to the causes of the unpleasant character of the relations between government officials and tho minister can be evolved, there are Borne that express the opinion that several very frank and emphatic remarks that have from time to time been dropped by the Hawaiian minister have not been regarded as strictly within the line of a dignified propriety/ and this opinion goes far .in 'placing a reason for the action of the department, From Another Source.- CHICAGO, March 20. — The jS'ews' Washington special says: •'Secretary Greshara bus demanded tho recall ot L. A. Thurston, tao Hawaiian minister nt Washington. At tie same tlma/tie doora of the state department have been 'closed against' tho representative of the new republic and ho has been told that ho must communicate in writing with the premier of'the Cleveland administration, as the latter declines to aeo him in person, .

Willis to formally communicate to the Hawaiian minister of foreign affairs the 'fact 'that Minister Thurston was persona non grata. The communication was sent by mall and has probably reached tho new republic, and the new) regarding Its reception may now be on an American steamer on the way to San Francisco.

("Minister Thurston declined to say whether he admitted It wu undiplomatic. It was a remarkable admission for him to make If ho did. Old diplomats say that suoh an admission from a diplomat would forever disqualify him for future Bervlce In hli chosen field and cover him with laitlnt disgrace. The records of the *tat« department •how that the Hawaiian minister admitted that he had been ruilty of an undiplomatic act, but declined to comply with. Secretary Gresham's request and put the fact In writing. For this refusal, it Is alleged, his recall has been demanded. "The communication sent to Minister WIUls, on which he is .to base this demand for Minister Thurston's' recall,- recites the fact that Minister Thnrston made these admissions but refused to put them In writing. He was thereupon tdld, so the message to Willis says, that hereafter all his communications must be 'reduced to writing,' which was a polite way of shutting the door In his face. •The next steamer from Honolulu will probably bring the news that the request for Minister Thurston's recall has been received. The Hawaiian government cannot, under diplomat- la usage, refuse to comply with It. bat It ma} enter a protest or even dluolre diplomatic relation*. __ . .. DECLARES FLAG STORY TRUE.
