HOME RULE RANKS
President Notley of the Home
Rule party called the first session of
the executive committee of the body
yesterday morning at 10 o'clock.
Letters from the presidents of the
various precinct.clubs throughout the
Territory were received and read.
Mr. Notley is rejoicing over the re
p rts suhmitttd at the meeting. He
says that the Home Rulers have every
reason to be hopeful at the coming
campaign, as the letters received
showed that a large numbers of the
old Home Rulers are. returnining to
Asked as to the reason for this, he
said, "The adverse stand the Super
visors of Hawaii ha ve taken to Sheriff
Keolanui is causing the revival of the
party, on the lslani of Hawaii..
"On Kauai the'Kanealii episode is
doing the' work. Strange to say, how
ever, Maui is coming forth also as the
other islands -strange,in that no par
ticular incident has occurred there,
as on Hawaii and Kauai."
He mentioned, particularly, the
district of Keanae, not far from Wai
luku, which has about sixty voters i
"In 1U04," said Mr. Notley, "this
proved to be a stiong Democratic
section, but today, according to re
port, very few Democrats can be
Besides these reports, tlio letters
received contained plans how the
work for the full may bi carried out.
The gist of the various plans tha t were
read is a suggestion of ways tosohdi
fy the party.
, While no other bus'ness was trans
acted besides the reading of the let
ters , Messrs. Notley and Poepoe
were not reluctant to speak on other
matters which have not been reach
ed. When asked if they would put
up a candidate for Delegate to Con
gress if Prince Kuhio should' receive
a rcpominution from the Republican
party, Mr, Poepoe said. "Personal
ly, as a prUate ii, dividual, I would
support any action to have the Home
Rule party endorse him, but as a
party man I would not."
Asked as to whether or no t'.ie

view from this. He said that he would
not entertain any idea of endorsing
Cupid were he renominated by the
Republican party. "Not long ago,"
said Notley, "I was approached by
some Republicans who seemed to be
in favor of Cupid's renomination, and
asked if I would support Cupid
should he be put up by them if he be
rejected at the general convention.
As yet I have not given any answer,
but I think, should that be the case,
I would certainly see that the Home
Rulers put a man in the field. He
would then have every assurance of
success, in so far as the Republican
party would be devided. This matter
selecting a candidate for Congress
will be brought up at some of the
regular sessions of the executive
committee. At present nothing has
been done." Bulletin.
BERLIN, February 27.-Tho Duch
ess Sophie Charlotte of Goldenburg,
daughter of the reigning Grand Duke
of Oldenburg by his first marriage
with Princess Elizabeth of Prussia,
and Prince Eitel Frederick, the sec
ond son of the Emperor and Empress,
were married at 5 o'clock this after
noon in the chape! of the palace by
tho court chaplain, Dr. Dryander.
Rain was failing on the chapel dome,
but ; inside was lit by hundred of
candles, showing the delicate cos
tumes or uniforms of about 500 per
sons belonging to the royal families
of Germany or the principal nobility,
the Cabinet Ministers and a number
of generals and admirals. Embassa
dor Tower and Mrs. Tower were pre
sent in the diplomatic circle.
In the diplomatic circle were Lii u
tenaut Commander William L. How
ard, the naval atteche; Mrs. How
ard and Miss Howard; Captain Wil
liam S. Biddlo Jr., the military at
tache, and Mrs. Biddle; Third Secre
tary Nelson O'Shaughnessy and Mrs.
O'Shaughnessy and Second Secretary
John W. Garrett. ,
The civil ceremony bad previously
taken place in the presence of the
imperial family alone in the Electors
chamber, while the other guests were
gathering in the chapel. The Em
press placed the Princess' crown of
green velvet and diamonds and a
wreath of fresh myrtle upon the
head of the Princess. Her majesty,
who also wore a wreath of myrtle,
and the bride were both dressed in
pearl-white silk. The train of the
bride, which was four yards in length,
was embroidered with silver roses.
The Duchess Sophie, with pages
bearing her train, entered the chapel
upon the arm of Prince Eitel, and he
changed at the altar from her left to
her right. They were followed by
the Empero" and the Grand Duchess
of Oldenburg, the Empress aud the
Grand Duke of Oldenburg, and others
of the two families. The- Emperor
and all the congregation except the
bridal party joined in the hymn.
Dr. Dryander, addressing the bride
and groom, dwelt upon the beauty of
married life and the joys of home.
Then, turning to the Emperor and
Empress, the chaplain alluded to
their home happiness. The responses
of the Prince and Princess were
clearly and even loudly spoken.
Dr. Dryander gave the Prince a
large Bible, which he had difficulty
in holding under his arm, and the
Emperor, the Emprpss, the Grand
Duke and Grand Duchess kissed
both the bride and groom.
The imperial party passed out of
the chapel and a reception of the
court followed in the White Hall,
after which the guests sat down to
The "torch dance," an immemorial
German custom, began at 8 o'clock.
Instead of torches, candles three feet
high were held aloft by twelve lack
eys. They marched twj and two in
advance of the imperial party, who
walked around the vast huilroom
bowing to the 1500 or so members of
ire court, who were massed on three
sides ot the hall. The I. ride took the
Emperor and all the princes, accord
ing to precedence, around the apart
ment, and Prince Eitel escorted the
Empress and all the other ladies of
the imperial family in turn around
the hall. There was a lime when the
torches were held by the greatest
personages of state in this dance;
but the custom has not been observ
ed since the wedding of the late
Prince Bismarck when, for the first
time, lackeys carried the torches.
SACRAMENTO, February 27
The Court of Appeals to-day decided
the case of B. J. Short against Dr.
George K. Frick, both of Shasta
county. It seems that Short sus
tained a compound fracture of the
leg and Dr. Frick was employed to
treat these injuries. The action was
to recover damages for tlleged mal
practice. The jury found for plain
tiff with $8000 damages.
It was alleged that the broken leg
was not set and did not unite ai d
heal, and has uever done so; that de
fendant did not cleanse the wound in
the flesh and skin, and that as a re
sult the plaintiff was unable to follow
his usual avocation, and that he has
wholly lost the use of his leg and is
The arguments mainly turned upon
the validity of certain evidence, and
it was also contended that the ver
dict of $8000 damages was excessive,
the plaiutiff being in a humble posi
tion. The Court of Appeals sustains
the verdict, and with regard to the
damages it holds that the lowly are
entitled to the same careful consider
tion and care at the hands of a phy
sician as the rich.
DR. BASHFORD FEARS
AWAKENING OF MONGOLS
Bishop James W. Bashfood is the
one particular man ot present to
whom all Methodists having friends
or kindred in China are looking for
direct and reliable information re
yarding the safety ot persons and the
prevailing conditions, not only iu the
center where the storm has already
developed, but wherever throughout
the vast empire it may possibly burst
into fury. Bishop Bushford is in
Shanghai, and he has been plied by
cable for latest advices regarding
the refugees. It was the comforting
wording of his cablegram received at
the headquarters of the Missionary
Society of the Methodist Epi.H-opal
Board and by it transmitted through
wire to all parts of the United States
which brought assurance to many
hears and euabled hundreds of anx
ious people to sleep contentedly Tues
Bishop Bashford is one of the four
new bishops of the donnmiiiation who
were elected at. the quadrennial gen
eral conference held in Los Angeles
In Mav, 100 1. lie is, therefore, not
much more than a recruit in the epis
copacy, but his jurisdiction is wide
spread and his duties in the face of
ecent development!; in the Ctiinese
provinces have become exceptionally
onerous, as he is tho Methodist prel
ate of all China. Ho is closing the
liftv-seventh year of his age, and with
the experience that must come with
a mellowing lile: he had enjoyed ex
ceptional"' good educational advan
tages. Be was graduated from tlie
University of Michigan in 1873, and
for a year after taught Greek In the
Ohio Weslcyan University. In 1877
he received his degiee of doctor of
divinity from the Boston University,
md five years later he added the title
of doctor of philosophy. Hp evidently
left few paths untrodden in pr" paring
for the ministry, for he U ok a course
in a school of oratory, and while trav
eling in Europe studied in Germany
for a time.
This week's California Christian
Advocate, which will go to its sub
scribers today, contains a communi
cation from the li's'.iop which reached
here bv a recent mail, and contains
the following pertinent, and in the
light of the developments of the last
few days, interesting paragraphs, be
tween the lines cf which suggestions
of a brewing storm seem almost un
consciously to have been written:
"China is waking up more rapidly
than Americans realize. Indeed, the
Liengchou massacre and the Shang
hai riot are no more i epetitions of
Ooxerism than are the recently revo
lutionary uprisings in Russia repeti
tions of bureaucratic attempts for
the suppression of Nihilism. Chinese
resistance of foreigners today is not
stuggle of an expiring nation, wish
ing to die in peace,but of an awaken
ing empire, striving for,larger recog
nition anil more equ'il privileges
among the nations of the earth. Thus
far the movement i a renaissance;
pray that it may not become a revo
lution." San Francisco Chronicle.
Cold from the
home of death
Reno, (Nev.), February 27. A
gravedigger working in the hillside
cemetery has uncovered a four foot
vein, and assays show that it carries
values of $100, a ton in gold. The hole
was immediately filled, and George
W. Oliver of the undertaking firm of
Perkins, Oliver and Gulling, with an
associate, staked off a claim.
This is not the first time that the
presence of gold has been suspected
in the hillside cemetery. Highly min
eralized quartz has frequently been
uncovered in the place, but the values
have uever run so high in gold, and it
is likely that the active operations of
the miner will soon invade the "siient
halls of death'."
Fifteen Hurt In
Dcpuy, (France), February 27.
Serious disturbances occured today
during the taking of the iuven'.ory of a
villagechurchnear Saugues. An enor
mous crowd armed with sticks and

iu order to extricate themselves tired
their revolvers, wounding fifteen of
the manifestants, two of whom were
mortally hurt. Two otllcers in charge
of the gendarmes were badly hurt
by tho mob.
