AlaUe Thonmimln of Dollars Oat ol' Viet I an In Bocu* L»ud Dciilti. CmcAGo, May 10,—One of the biggest land swindling-schemes ever unearthed has been laid bare by the arrest of William JT. Cowell in Kenosha, Wis., by Detective Elliott, of tho Chicago police force. The prisonRr is the son of a former Kenosha minister, and was arrested on the charge of operating a confidence game, it is believed hist transactions will run up into the thousands. He was arrested at the instigation of .1. Stough, of this city, who traded Chicago property worth 812,000 for mythical Texas land last April. Cowell furnished deeds and abstracts to the Texas property. William Bnt>gg traded $15,000 worth of property for a supposed tract of land in Texas. The complaints from those who had gone to Texas became so numerous that Gov. Culbertson placed the matter iu the hands of the Texas land commissioner. It was found that in all cases of exchange the land was either mythical or other persons owned the property. Among the other victims are A. E. Oviatt, Elkhorn, Wis., 53.000; F. K, Tobin. Wichita, Kan., §5,000; J. H. Baker, Uutchinson, ICan., §10,000. It is thought a Chicago gang were in the swindle and further developments are expected. ROYAL ARCANUM GROWING.

CRISIS PENDING. Republic of Hawaii in a Bad State of Demoralization. Return to Monarchial Form of Government with Princess Kaiulani on the Throne Said to Be Certain. SAX FBANCISCO, May 10.— Col. Ashford, of Hawaii, who arrived here Wednesday on the steamer Australia, said: "There Is a perfect reifrn of terror in the 1s- Unds. Informers are every whera People dara not speak In their own houses. There Is everywhere a feeling of uncertainty, doubt and Impending danger and ruin. Those who favored annexation nave made up their minds that it Is Impossible. The missionaries, as vre call most of the political party in power, have'claimed to be In favor of annexation, but have never been BO. The annexatlonlsts now mistrust them. Annexation is an Impossibility and all are about unreed on that, Tburston has gone back and It is publicly said that he Is going to propose the restoration of a.naonarchy, with Kaiulani on the throne. "A republic seems an Impossibility, such a larpe part of the population are incapuble of £ovornin£ themselves. As long as this so-called republic can pay armed men 10 keep down rebellion it will last and no longer. What they are talking of now und want Urst is some sort of protectorate of the "United Scutes. They aru afraid of Japan and want some protection against any other foreign Interference. Then of course what is next Vfauted is a monarchy. The natives are not at all discouraged liy the failure of the last movement.' They would eludly ujake another attempt. I am not a royalist In principle but tinder nil the considerations existing down there 1 think It is the only thing. A monarchy would, unite all the natives und be respected by all forulfc-n powers." Ct-iH>»* Surely Couiiu^. Julius A- Talmer, .,who went to the Hawaiian islands to- investigate the state of all'airs there as special correspondent of a !Ne\v York paper, arrived here on the same,, steamer. He • believes, that there ' will . be soon a • crisis there and that the end can only be the restoration of the -wonarchial form of government. He says there never will be harmony until the. monarchy is restored and Princess Kaiulani placed -upon the throne. In giving his reasons for this belief he said: "There are three main ix>intsofila:ip;er totho government. Tho ilrsf is that Secretary Greshurn lias decided that Howler is not uu American, citizen, and another Is that Great liritaln has decided that Klcl;ard and Wallior are British subjects. The greatest fear o£ tno Hawaiian government t» Japan. The authorities are making arrangements', to cot In 5.000 Chinese coolies and to send away as many Japanese. Tlio government, when tho Japanese coolies came In, «ave nn'understandini: that if Japan would supply coolies they would be employed. Now Japau will probably nold that this understanding is being violated. "The third danger to t'.ie government parly is in its own people. The democracy, or the American league, is lakinc umbrago nt the now Importation of Chinese. The loyalty of the natives to monarchy w&8 never so strong as It Is no\v and it was tlio basis of the union of all parties in past years, and there will be no harmony until that monarchy Is restored in the person of Princess Kaiulani, and that would make peace at once.'' _ AGAIN. day.
