WASHINGTON, March 26. — Minister Thurston, of Hawaii, is about to depart for Honolulu. He leaves "Washington Wednesday or next day. and will sail from San Francisco on April 4 on the Eteamer Arrowa. Mr. Thnrston broke silence Tuesday for the first time since tho recent re porks of Secretary Grcsham's demands for his recall, and gave out tlie following authorized statement: HUM Nut Uoen Uncalled. "I have received nolnformatlon from mypov- ertimcnt or from Mr. Greshum llmt my recall has baun requested, and up to tho present time there hus linen no chanpe In my ofllciul relations with tho state de- purtmfiit. Whether my recall has been reciutwtcil or not I do not know. In any event I shall not rumain In Washington. There is no&hfag-of especial imporc;ince to keep me hero at present, whilo tliero are several mat- tors requiring my attention at home. I shall therefore return to Honolulu immediately, leaving San Francisco April 4." iteuchcd a Decision Suddenly. Mr, Thurston reached this conclusion somewhat suddenly, and announced his intention to friends while making farewell visits Monday afternoon. He declined to discuss his case in any manner, and merely said that he would start for San Francisco Wednesday and take the steamer sailing next week for Honolulu. Mr. HantlnK1 tuft In Charge. 3Sbne of the attaches of the legation would discuss tho reasons on which Mr. Thurston had decided to return home. For the present Mr. Hastings will be in charge of the legation. Rumors are current to the effect that he may be appointed minister. It is also reported that Mr. Thurston will become the Hawaiian secretary of foreign affairs, and that Mr. Hatch will represent his government at Washington. May >'ut Oinio Back. Mr. Tlun-ston's departure puts an end to previous comment as to his purpose to remain in Washington as a thorn in the side of the state department. His statement does not make clear, however, whether his absence is temporary or permanent and the minister will not go into details. It is regarded'as final, however, in showing that he will not Beck to remain in Washington as a source of any irritation. There have been reports, believed, however, to be baseless, that if : lie persisted in remaining in a private capacity, the law would .be evoked to j have him deported, but Mr. Thurston's j statement is regarded as settling that j there will be no occasion for forcing him out of the country. Shrowd Diplomatic Move.' In some quarters Mr. Thnrston's tnove is regarded as a shrewd diplomatic stroke. It is recalled that he left unexpectedly fifteen laouths ago when the question of restoring the queen to the throne was' at a critical stage in Hawaii. The Hawaiian government was on the point of reaching a decision, but had not yet done so. At this juncture Mr. Thurston left Washington -'suddenly, his departure not being known until he was well on the way to San Francisco. He had full information as to the sentiment in the United States and when he reached Hawaii his advice had much to do in the final action of the government. NEW SPANISH MINISTER.

Count Casa Valencia and Dupuy de Lorme probably will be their successors. Gen. Gamir probably will replace Capt. Gen. Calleja in Cuba. WASHINGTON, March 20.—Senor Mu- ruaga, the Spanish minister, has been advised by his government of the acceptance of his resignation, which was re-tendered after the establishment of the new Spanish government.

Li Hung Chang objects to the extraction of the bullet, which lies just under his left eye. He sleeps well. The empress of Japan has sent two nurses to attend him. Letters and telegrams expressing regret and sympathy are pouring in from all directions. No Olllcial Information at Washington. WASHINGTON, March 20.—!Xo official coniirination of the attempted assassination of Li Hung Chang has been re- cuivcd at either the Chinese or the .Tapa-hese legations. The general feeling here is ot>e of profound regret that this venerable Chinese diplomat should have fallen a victim to a fanatic's bullet. Its effect upon the peace negotiations cannot be determined, for much will depend upon the result. Should Li recover after a short • illness, the only result, it is believed, would be to delay a settlement of peace. Should he die a postponement of the peace negotiations for a number of weeks is regarded as inevitable. So great is the confidence of the Japanese envoys and the Japanese people as well, in Li's ability to further a settlement of peace, that his death would make it difficult to secure another envoy on the part of China who would be equally acceptable to Ja pan, or who, it is believed, would so easily bring negotiations to a, success ful close. file AH»unHln'» Pnnllhnient. ' The punishment which Li's assassin Koyoma. will receive, will be botl speedy and severe. In the presen case, the attack upon Li, who is the direct representative of the emperor o hina, is tantamount to an attack on the emperor himself and will, for this reason, be sternly dealt with. If L should die as a result of the attack upon him his assassin will be punishes by death, which in Japan takes th< form of hanging. Even should Li re cover, it is regarded us probable thai Kovoma will be condemnedto'dcath as warning to his fellow-countrj'inen CeKBlon of Territory. The report which reaches here tha! China will not consent to a cession of any part of her territory as one.of the conditions of peace, is not believed to be .correct. China knew before • Li came to Shimonoseki upon what terms Japan would make peace, and the occupation, by Japan of the island of Formosa was' known to be included in these terms. It is not doubted that China would prefer to pay a much larger war indemnity than Japan will ask in order to retain Formosa, but it is known positively that Japan, will not accept such a proposition. Europe Slay Mttvn Something to Suy. LOXDOX, March 26.—A dispatch to the Chronicle from Rome says it is ofli- cially stated that France. Great Britain, Russia and Italy will require the insertion of a clause in the treaty of peace between China and Japan providing for the opening of the principal Chinese ports to European commerce. W.
