Planters' Association of JVfaul.
Nearly a year ago, tho matter of
forming a Planters' Association on
Maui was discussedj. anc' it was
resolved to , effect such an organi
zation, but action was deferred
for a time.
Recent developments on the Is
land, and the near approach of the
time when a new order of things will
be called into existence by the pas
sago of tho territorial bill, has
primptcd the plant ers to take deci
sive action. S
On Monday last, a meeting of man
of tho prominent planters on Maui
was held at the residence of C. B.
Wells, the. manager of the Wailuku
Plantation, at Wailuku. A perman

Washington, April 311, The Presi

Wtif Hawaii was annexed to this
coentr; i': had a bonded debt of abcut
14.000.(100 drawing a heavy rate of

not intend that it rthall be added to
the bonded debt of the United States

terms of the debt will be looked into,
and if they permit payment ut any

Appointed by tho. President !s com
plete. The President intends to
make nominations for tho ' remaining
offices at an early date, fo that the
appointees may have all the time
they need to arrttngo preliminaries.
All territorial ofPces will be filled by
itizens of the Territory, and at
least one of .those positions recogniz
ed as United offices will also go to a
citizen of the Islands. These places
are United States Judge,-District
Attorney,lMarshal and Collector of
Customs. Of these four the District
Attorney v.'tli probably be a citizen
of Hawaii. Senator Cullom, who
engineered thei Hawaiian bill in the
SenatCj will probably get a place for
one of hifj Illinois constituents! It
is thought that M . M. Estee of Cali
fornia has an excellent chance for
the position of United Statcss Judge.
Washington, D. C. May; 2. It
was stated to-day that President Mc
Kinley has . decided to appoint a
California man United States Dis
trict Judge for Hawaii, and that M.
M. Estee is the man- agreed upon.
This statement cannot be fully veri-
ifie'd. Estee's appointment to this
judgeship vra$ partly promised by
President McKinley seveial weeks
ago. When the President was mak
ing up the latest Philippine Commis
sion he placed Estee's name upon the
slate and the appointment was practi
cally niad'c; Then,, at last moment,
there arose' a demand that some col
lege man-go upon the commission,
and Bernard Moses' nainel backed
by tho leading college men, was
So Estee was dropped for Moses,
and the President said he probably
would give him the Hawaiian judge-
hip. When the Hawaiian bill passed
some taiuornias caueu upon uie
President to redeem his implied prom
ise, and it looked as if everything
would be all right until somebody
brought, forward Judge Green of
Oakland as California's candidate,
Representative Metealf, who is now
in Oakland, is' pushing Judge Green.
This has complicated matters and
made trouble here. Telegrams for
and against Estee are coming in from
California fast. So it conies down
to this: If the President has not de
cided to appoint Estee, California'
may not get the appoinnient' nt all."

London, May 2: It is difficult to
unravel the tangled stories coining
from the north of Thaban' Chu, but
apparently the British forces arc
engaged in a movement having for
its object the hemming in of the
Boers still in that district. While
Generals French and Rundlo are
holding tho Boers at Thuba n'Chu.
General Broadwood's cavalry has
been pushed on Houtfeck (not Hout
