Honolulu, August 8. Hawaii
will be ably and to some extent in
telligently, from first-hand informa
tion, represented nt the Trans-Mississippi
Commercial Congress which
is to assemble at Seattle on the 18th
of this month. Governor Dole has
selected seven representatives of the
Territory upon special invitation.
In a letter to Arthur F. Francis
of Cripple Creek, Colo., secretary
of the Trans-Mississippi Commer
cial Congress, the Governor returns
thanks for the kind invitation and
names the following as his choice
to represent Hawaii at the Congress:
Mr. E. V. Andrews, of Seattle Na
tional Bank; Mr. Herman Chapiu,
of Boston National Batik, Seattle;
Rev. W. C. Merritt, of Spokane,
Washington; Mr. W. A. Peters,
attomey-at-law, Seattle; Mr. Her
bert S. Griggs, of Tacoma, Wash
ington; Captain Dublois Pcuhallow,
Mr. Harold Preston, attomey-at-law,
Of the list Mr. Merrit was for
some years in the eighties principal
of Oahu College, while Captain
Pcuhallow has sailed into Honolulu
from time out of mind.
Secretary Geo. R. Carter, speak
ing of the matter yesterday, said
there was a special bond of aloha
between the Trans-Mississippi Con
gress and the Territory of Hawaii.
He recalled how, at the first as
sembly, the Congress suspended all
other business to give a rousing
welcome to Messrs. L. A. Thurston
and W. A. Kinney when their pres
ence was announced. Also, now
at first Congress assiste'd the cause
of annexation by a strong resolu
tion in that behalf.

WHY SCIIW.UI KESIUXED.
President of Biggest Trust tjults on
Account of Health.
New York, Aug. 5. Charles M.
Schwab still retains his interest in
the Steel trust. His resignation is
solely due to ill health.
Chas. M. Schwab, the marvel of
the business world of modern years,
has resigned his connection with
active business affairs. Mr. Schwab
has only been in business a
comparatively few years. Twenty
years ago he started his career on a
salary of one dollar per day under
Andrew Carnegie. Now he retires
with millions from the presidency
of one of the greatest business con
cerns on earth.
Mr. Schwab is succeeded by his
lifelong friend and business asso
ciate, William E. Corey of Pitts
burg, president of the Carnegie
Steel Works, a constituent company
of the billion dollar steel trust.
For over a year Mr. Schwab has
been in very poor health. Schwab
was born in Williamsburg, Blair
county, Pa., on Frbruary 18, 1862,
his father being a woolen manufac
turer. He received his early educa
tion at St. Francis' College, Loret
to, whence he graduated in July,
1880. After six months' work as
a clerk in a grocery store, he entered
the engineering department of the
Carnegie works at Braddock, Pa.,
and six mouths later he was made
chief of that branch ol the system.
In 1887 he was appointed superin
tendent of the Homestead Steel
Works, and two years later he was
advanced to the head of the Edgar
Thomson Works. He was elected
I a member of the board of managers
1 of the company in 1896, and a year
later succeeded John G. A. Irish
man to the office of president of the
Carnegie Steel Company, limited.
In 1901 he became President of the
Steel Trust at a salary of a million
! dollars a year.
.Mrs. Whiting Has Smallpox.
1 San Francisco. Cal.. Aue. 7.
I Mrs. Whiting (nee Afong), wife of
j Captain Whiting, recently stationed
I in Honolulu, was taken ill today
with smallpox. Physicians and
members of the family are at loss
to uimcrstanu now Mrs. wiutlng
could have contracted the disease.
Mrs Whiting came to Sail Francisco
some months ago preceding her
husband, who requested a transfer
from the Honolulu Naval Station
on account of his wife's health.
Mrs. Whiting has since made her
home in California.

The San Juan Times claims thati
the Island of Porto Rico has never
seen harder times than at present.
The following is taken fioin its
Yesterday we recorded a large t
number of additional failures of
business houses in Ponce. Several
of them were important business 1
houses, and other also important
houses, have decided to simply stop j
doing business until times improve. I
In San Juan there have been an
unusually large number of failures
and some of them have been the
largest houses on the island. This
seems to be a trying time for Porto
Notwithstanding all this, the!
Governor is shouting prosperity
while up North and telling the J
people that Porto Rico never before j
saw such prosperous times. There j
is a big discrepancy somewhere.
We do not believe that one busi-i
ness man out of one thousand will j
say that we are experiencing pros-'
perous times in Porto Rico. The
complaint is universal and constant
from every part of the island.
Hardly 0 letter is written to the
News, either privately or for publi
cation, which does not mention the
"deplorable state of business" and j
the commercial depression. It
seems very strange indeed, that all
this should wholly escape the Gov
ernor who, instead lm evidently
been told that the times arc good '
and that the island is prospering.
We would like to know who it was
that told the Governor we were
Maybe we can answer the ques-1
tion. Possibly it was some of the
republican hoodlums and office-!
holders whom he has put in office
and who never before earned a cent
or worked a day to get an honest
living, and for whose support the I
rest of us are now paying an exor-1
bitaut price. ,
New York, Aug, 6. Things are
looking dark in Wall street, where'
the recurring failures of the past
fortnight have brought on fears of
a panic. The suspension of Sharp
& Bryan, brokers, with liabilities
of $5,000,000 occurred in the after
noon and Hurlburt, Hatch & Co.,
another heavy firm, are suffering '
from grave shrinkages.
The firm of Hurlburt, Hatch &
Co., was founded in 1899 mid is
composed of the three members:
John Henry Hurlburt, E. Sauford
Hatch, and J. Frailey Smith. Both
Mr. Hurlburt and Mr. Hatch were
formerly prominently connected
with Wall street houses. The firm
was active in dealing on the Stock
Exchange from the first and has
been regarded as one of the sti dig
est banking and brokerage houses
in New York. It had laree con
nections all over the United. States.
Sharp & Bryon were also doiiii
business on the Stcok Exchange in
a large way.
