Carl W. Keller, |Tailor& Draper. 311 Market St. WASHINGTON, March 22.—-The cabinet meeting Friday was devoted mostly to a consideration of foreign affairs. Secretary Gresham went over to the white house armed with sundry ofiicial documents relating, it is understood, to the Nicaraguau and Venezuelan situations find the Allianca incident. The Thurston matter, it is understood, will remain in abeyance until March 27, v-V:i a steamer is due from Honolulu • which will probably bring ofiicial advices bearing on the- subject of Mr. Thurston's recall. It appears to be the belief in state department circles that Spain is not disposed to nake any decided stand against the demands of this government in the Allianca matter. The situation in Cuba -and the cabinet crisis lit Madrid aro pointed to as reasons why the Spanish government is .anxious at this time to remain on good terms with the United States, and it is predicted that Spain will waive part of what she believes to be her rights in the questions at issue and meet this government half way. On the other hand, it is said that the Washington administration is willing to pass by, for the present at least, any alleged utterances of Senor Muruaga, the Spanish minister, that may be construed as uncomplimentary to Secretary Gresham. Milking n Thorough Investigation. WASHINGTON, March 22.—The Spanish naval commander at Havana is still investigating the firing upon the Qnited States steamship Ailiiuuca by the Spanish . gunboat Conde de Vendito. As an evidence of ;he thoroughness with which the Spanish government is looking into this matter it is stated that the investigation made by the naval commander will be entirely separate from any report made by the Spanish captain. When the naval commander shall have finished his investigation, his report will be cabled to. Madrid. The full text of the Spanish captain's report was forwarded to Spaip as soon as it was placed in the hands of the Havana authorities. It is officially stated that Spain .will make no reply to Secretary Gresham's telegram through Minister Taylor regarding the Allianca case until the naval commander's report shall be in the' hands of the ofEce of foreign affairs. The Spanish government feels that it would be unwise to commit itself to any reply until it first shall have been placed in possession of all the information bearing upon the action taken by the captain of their gunboat. There is high official authority for the statement that Spain thus far has only stated to the United States government through Minister Taylor that the disposition of the Spanish government is to act fairly and that a detailed answer will be made to Secretary Gresham's dispatch at the very moment the government is in a position to speak intelligently. ' The Spanish government has shown a disposition to make a proper reparation if her representatives have been in the wrong. Ko apology, however, has been made, nor will any be made until Spain is satisfied that it is proper she should do so. ernment and tha.t of Great Britain than appeared upon the surface of. things Wednesday, and the portcntousness of which was manifested by the extraordinary and long-continued session of the cabinet. At that time the belief was entertained in some quarters that the determined front of England ou the Xicaruguan affair meant eventually the control of the canal which will be built across the isthmus through that country. CHANGED HANDS. Provisional Government Already in Force in Peru. Over HAWAII ANNEXATION. From In cnft KoyallstH Said to Have Formed a Club ivlth Tills Aim. WASHINGTON, March 22.—Late press ndvices received here from Hawaii say Charles B. Wilson, confidential adviser of the ex-queen, John Colbern, one of her cabinet at the time she was deposed. Antoni Hosa, attorney-general under the kin*,', and Jobn Richardson, formerly on the queen's staff — all of them prominent royalists — have taken part in forming' :m annexation club among- the native Hawaiian*. This is regarded as a declaration among- the chief royalists that the monarchy is dead for all time. At a recent meeting in Honolulu these prominent royalists took part in forming a constitution and articles of belief. These state: First— Wu Relieve thnc the republican form or Roveninjont has come Co t-tay !:i these is- I.-imls. Si'cond—'iVu iwlieve ovory person should as- slst t!ie f.'ovet-jiniont in Lilt. 1 cai-ryln;: out of its policy of politU-al annexation of Lhesi; islands to the United States. The third article declares that the present Dole government secures liberty, seeurit3', free speech and free press, restriction of Asiatic emigration, and cable communication. The constitution restricts members of the new organization to natives or those having Hawaiian blood or foreigners who have married in Hawaii. 1,000 Killed in a Three Days' Battle in Lima—The New President.

George WASHINGTON, March 22.—The .latest developments in the Nicaraguan 'question are of a character that at leas temporarily sets at rest any balefulim pressions that may have been create by the strong ground England has taken in the demands made by her upon th South American republic. The govern ment is net on the verge of troubl with England, inasmuch as dispatche from Ambassador Bayard at London in response to telegrams from this government requiring him to ascertain the attitudgsjiof Great Britain in Kicarag>Srshould rnfuse to pay the indemnity demanded for the outrage upon Mr. Hatch indicate very clear that whatever else might happen England will not seek to acquire American territory. The telegram to Mr. Ba\-ard was the result of the cabiuel council of Wednesday and the reply received is regarded as very satisfactory. The full report of the dispatch from Ambassador Ba3 r ard is not forthcoming, but its purport is sufficiently indicated in the statement herein mentioned. This particular subject has been pressed by the American ambassador for some time, and it is regarded as having reached a position now entirely satisfactory to him, and as a matter of course one that meets with the approval of this government No less agreeable to the government here is the latest phase of the Venezuelan question which, inasmuch as there are instructions from the British government of a disposition to submit that case to arbitration, is held to be a diplomatic triumph for the administration. Secretary Gresham and tie British minister had an interview Thursday which is B»id to have been satisfactory. I Undoubtedly there is a b*tt«r showing- I for tbo continuance of ; the long held ' Um «VOT- ' PIKE.NIX, A. T,, March 22. — The Eighteenth legislature adjourned at 1 o'clock Friday morning amid scenes disorderly. All day and fore part of the the nig-ht there had been bitterly contested fights over the formation of Navajo county in the northeastern part of the territory. Its advocates succeeded in forcing the bill throug-h at 10 o'clock, after which the appropriation bill was taken up in the house. Th'is was delayed to kill chances of removal of penitentiary from Yuma to Prescott. The house bill had a clear majority and had passed the upper house. It was not allowed to appear, action on appropriations being delayed until after ]3 o'clock, at which time the legislature lapsed through limitation. Nearly all territorial institutions and officers are thus left without funds for the coming two years. Lawyers agree that the only remedy lies in an extra session.' which can be only called by congress next December.. . A ^oted tVuiiittn JJeua. BOSTON, March 22.— Mrs, Abbie M.

Foreign locutions In lj»u^or. During the fighting all of the foreign legations were exposed to the firing. The United States legation was in a particularly dangerous situation.
