Washington, D. C, January 23
"Tlio President's Little Kingdom,"
as the District of Columbia, in
which this city is located, was once
aptly called, has been shaken re
cently by a proposition of aBerious
nature to change Us form of govern
ment. No political division of the
United States has been so various
ly governed during the last hun
dred years. Although its popula
tion is about 300,000 considerably
larger than any one of several
States, notably Delaware, Wyom
ing, Nevada and Idaho -there are
but few people in the country at
large who can tell how local autho
rity is exercised within its limits.
It used to have a territorial orga
nization, with a governor and a
legislature of two branches. At
one time, also, it had a municipal
form of government, with a mayor,
as the city of Washington com
prises about all thoro is to the
District. But things kept going
from bad to worse and the negroes
became such an undesirable eler
ment in the voting population that
in the early 70's the form of gov
ernment was again changed and
for thirty-five years tho District
has been governed by a board of
three commissioners, ono a Republi
can, one a Democract, and one an
army ofiicer, each of tho threo be
ing paid an annual salary of $5,000.
Tho President appoints them, with
tho consent of tho Senate. Virtual
ly tho President is tho supreme
authority. If he wishes to do so,
ho can absolutely control tho ad
ministration of tho District of
Columbia more autocratically by
far than would be permitted to
tlio governor of any State.
The local government has proven
very satisfactory in the main, al
though tho farthest removed from
being a representative government.
But' with all its advantage it is
probably tfio finest representation
of red tape, such as would put the
red tapo of tho British department
in tho shade, that has ever been
developed in this country. Tho
threo commissioners divide the.
supervision of local governmental
activities. Ono has the police;
another tho health department,
and so on. While each has sup
remo authority, subject to tho
President, in his own field, no ono
stands forth as the head of the
District government. If a Senator
or a member of tho Houso wants
to inquire about a certain topic, ho
must first ascertain which commis
sioners has jurisdiction. Tho voice
of tho District Commissioners is
expressed only at board meetings,
"and this voice daily condescends
to- very minuto details. For in
stance, if it is proposed to send a
bill or some other document to a
certain person, strictly speaking,
tho action must first bo approved
by all threo commissioners.
So it has been proposed thtvt the
city of Washington, or rather the
District of Columbia, shall have a
governor; ju3t like the state and
territories, who, alone, shall bo the
responsible head. Tho idea of
having him elected by popular
vote would not be . tolerated for a
moment by the representative peo
ple here. lie will be appointed by
the President just as the governors
of territories are and confirmed by
the Senate. The idea has many
advocates and lias been broached
so vicorously in certain quarters
that there is good show of its be
ing adopted' by the next Congress.
The timo is too brief to permit of
such action this winter. For,
while the President has greatautho
rity in his little kingdom, all the
laws for it are made by Congress
and approved by him, just as the
Federal laws are made for all tho
The President of the Board of
Commissioners comes nearer now
to what tho governor is in other
states than any other ofiicer, This
official is always of the same poli
tics as the administration. But
whilo one commissioner is always
a Republican and one a Democrat,
theoretically, and must as a mat
ter of fact bo a bona fido resident
of the District, long residonco hero
has tended to eliminate partisan
ship among tho leading people.,)
They take no very keen interest in
either party. Thus it happens that
tho commissioners aro often men
belonging distinctly to neither
party, or having little moro than a
nominal identity with either poli
tical organization. On matters
of local government, however,
Washingtonians are exceedingly
alert. They fight liko Kilkenny
cats and carry their fights right up
to Congress. In tho mattor of
having a governor, as proposed,
they are evincing a very lively in
terest, and whenever Congress is
ready to take up tho question, both
branches will bo besieged by citi
zens determined to bo heard on
one or the other siclb.
Feppetlnji Out Tho Poisoners,
Honolulu, Feb. 7. Advices from
Kauai are to tho effect that the
wholo island is stirred up over tho
B. D. Baldwin case, and it is oven
said that Will Baldwin, who pre
ceded B, D. Baldwin in tho manage
ment of JIakaweli, was a victim of
slow poison. At all events, for a
long timo beforo ho left Makaweli,
Will Baldwin was ill, and did not
fully recover his health until ho
left Kauai It is thought that tlio
plan of tho poisoners was to ad
minister minuto doses, so as to
causes lingering death in suph a
way that no suspicion would be
directed toward them. Hugh Mor
rison, manager of Makaweli just
provious to Will Baldwin, was tak
en deathly sick and kept failing in
health until at last hevas obliged
to resign his situation and leave
lor the Coast in soarch of health,
where ho died a short time after
B. D. Baldwin, as well as some
of his family, has been unwell for
some time. In fact, a few months
auo Mr. Baldwin was critically ill
and everything goes to show that
the Baldwins have been taking poi
sons into their systems for many
months, and it is said, that these
poisons have been given them by
two Japanese employed at Maka
weli, namely Nomi Nizo, a cook
employed by Mr. Baldwin, and.
Yoncmoto, a man employed in the
Sheriff Coney went to Makaweli
last week and arrested Nomi Nizo
and Yoncmoto and took them to
Waimea, whore their case came up
in Judge Ilofgaard's court last
Wednesday. The case was post
poned until February 11th, as a
Japanese who is an important wit
ness in tho case is now in Honolulu.
There are conflicting stories as to
the character of the poison used,
one saying that the cook at the
plantation house was seen putting
arsenic or something of that kind
into the drinking water used at the
house, while still another is to the
effect that the plantation chemist
found that Mr. Baldwin had been
taking bichloride of mercury into
Greatest ot American Dioceses.
Honolulu, Feb. 6. Bishop Henry
Restarick of tho Dioceses of Hono
lulu now has tho distinction of be
ing the head of the largest diocese
of tho American Episcopal Church,
if not the largest dioceso in the
world. The boundaries of his ter
ritory inclose an area half as large
as that of the entire mainland por
tion of tho United States. How
ever, it is but fair to stato that
most of the area so included con
sists only of the blue waters of the
At tho recent convention of the
Episcopal Church it was decided to
place every bit of the territorv of
United States under tho jurisdic
tion of some oho or other of the
bishops of the church. Guam and
American Samoa were the only two
Vortione f Amsrican territory
not -yet assigned, and the
former was given to the Bishop of
the Philippines, while Samoa fell
to tho lot of Bishop Reftarick.
Tho enlarged Dioceso of Hono
lulu is interesting and entiroly un
ique. .The islands included in its
jurisdiction may bo roughly en
closed by a right angled triangle,
with tho right angle somowhoro
cast of Maui and northeast of Ha
waii, and tho other angles at Mid
way island in tho extreme west of
the Hawaiian group and Tutuila,
in Samoa. From Hawaii to Tutui
la, Samoa, is noarly 2,300 miles,
from the most easterly point in tho
dioceso to Midway, nearly 1,400
miles. This vast religious jurisdic
tion has tho distinction of being
tho only American diocese lying on
both sides of tho equator, and Bis
hop Restarick is one of tho few pre
lates to rule beneath both tho Pole
Star and tho Southern Cross.
