Honolulu, Jan. 30 Correspon
dence from Washington to the morn
ing paper states that during the
meeting of the Democratic National
Committee in that city, a cablegram
was received from Hawaiian Demo
crats, asking that Palmer P. Woods
I be appointed a member of the
National Committee to represent the
Territory. The matter was referred
to a committee of which John T.
McGraw, of West Virginia, is
Behind ttiis apparently innocent
statement looms a story which is
likely to make Democratic history
in the Islands. As told by a promi
nent member of the Central Com
mittee of the Democratic party of
the Islands, this story is as follows:
"When Palmer Woods was in
the city, he and Col. McCarthy
talked over the question of a Na
tional Committeeman and they de
cided on Hon. S. M. Damon, who
would not accept. It was then
decided between Messrs. Woods
and McCarthy that the latter should
take the nomination.
"Previous to the meeting to name
a National Committeeman, a letter
was sent. to Mr. Woods by someone
and he was asked to run for the
place. Mr. Woods answered that
he would do so if there was no op
position. "Now the meeting was held and
the names of both Messrs. Woods
and McCarthy were placed in nomi
nation for the inportaut post. Mc
"This meeting took place on the
13th inst., but it has been learned
that three days previous to this,
some person or persons sent the
name of Senator Woods by cable to
the Democratic National Committee
which met in Washington. Instead
of any individuals signing the en
dorsement of Mr. Woods, the words
'Democratic Central Committee'
were placed at the bottom. This I
believe to be the reason why the
National Committee referred the
matter to a special committee. I
think they were a bit skeptical
about the matter.
"Now this name was sent on
without any action whatever on the
part of the Central Committee, and,
as I firmly believe, without any
consultation whatever with 'Mr.
Woods. With regard to the posi
tion of the Senator from Hawaii, I
believe it a case of 'God save me
from my friends."
"As soon as the committee took
action, we sent Col. McCarthy's
name to the National Committee
and the endorsement is now in the
hands of that body for action.
There is no question whatever that
the regularly nominated candidate
will have given him the honor of
reprpsentiug the Territory of Ha
waii at what will unquestionably
be one of the most important con
ventions iu the history of Demo
cracy in the United States.
"Mind you, in all of this mix-up,
I am not blaming Senator Woods in
the least. I believe he is perfectly
innocent of ever a thought that
would suggest disloyalty. I believe
he is true to his colors and that he
has simply been made the unwitting
tool of some Domocrats seeking to
attain their own ends.
"You can rest assured that we
mean to fight this thing through
to a finish and put the regularly
nominated man where he belongs.
We have the record of the meeting
back of us, duly signed by the
proper officer. Even after the meet
ing which chose McCarthy, matters
could have been arrauged so that
Senator Woods would have been
chosen committeeman, but we won't
stand for any monkey business, and
now we intend to fight."

Notorious Promoter Miration Poison
London, England, Jan. 26. J.
Whitakcr Wright, the promoter
who had been convicted of gigantic
frauds and sentenced to seven years'
imprisonment, dropped dead today.
The death of Wright is the finat
chapter in one of the most stupen
dous promotion scandals ol Eng
land. Wright was the managing
director of the London & Globe
Finance Corporation with a total
capitalization of $60,675,000. He
lived like a prince and was friendly
with England's titled society. The
crash came in December of 1900,
when the failure of the corporation
brought to light tremendous frauds.
One of the victims of the crash was
the late Marquis of Dufferiti, previ
ously Governor General of Canada
and British Embassador to Paris.
With Lord Dufieriu on the board
of directors were Lieutenant General
Gough-Calthrap, who was colonel
of the Fifth Dragoon Guards, and
Edward William Pelham-Clintou,
master of the late Queen's house
hold and son of the fifth Duke of
Much American money was lost
in the failure of the Wright com
panies. There was a great outcry
against the attitudeof the authorities
in not prosecuting Whitaker Wright
and his fellow directors ofthe Lou
don & Globe Company, and in
January 1903, a petition was circu
lated on the London Stock Ex
change, signed by many influential
men, demanding the prosecution of
Wright as it was considered that
the credit of the city and ofthe
London Stock Exchange demanded
a thorough investigation. A fund
of $25,000 was raised to initiate the
proceedings against Wright.
London, England, Jan. 28. The
coroner's jury investigating the
death of Whitaker Wright has re
turned a verdict of death by suicide.
Old Romance Unveiled.
A romance of the curiosity shop
has just come to light in London.
Three hundred aifd fifty years
ago Henry II., King of France,
presented a magnificent casket to
his favorite, Diana of Poitiers.
Passing a West End curio shop re
cently, Mr. Hubbard, a well known
city architect, of Gresham street,
sawa tarnished casket in the window.
He entered and asked the price,
which he was told was 35 pounds
Mr. Hubbard took the casket
home on approval, and after a day
or two wrote, asking the dealer
whether he would accept a check
for 25 pounds or have the casket
returned. The dealer accepted the
On examining his prize, Mr.
Hubbard found the intertwined
monograms of Henry II. aud Diana
of Poitiers two "Ds" and an "H"
in ten places, as well as the three
interlaced crescents which formed
Diana's own crest, while on the
four corners was the crowned "H"
of the monarch. There is no doubt
that the casket is one presented by
the King to his favorite.
The box, which is about eighteen
inches long and nine inches wide,
is of wood covered with beautiful
gesso work. It stands on eight
silver acorns, aud at the corners of
the lid aud body are elaborate silver
ornaments. The tuost curious
feature is a silver Moorish dome on
the top. Experts suggest that it
may be hollow, and that there may
be something concealed within it.
But Mr. Hubbard has been unable
to find any opening.
"The find is unique," said an
expert, "and it would probably fetch
5000 pounds sterling to-morrow if
put up for sale by auction."
In a few days the casket will be
exhibited at South Kensington
Museum Loudon Daily Mail.

The court held that he is not re
