I 1 MARK HA3XA DEAD.
SVi'n Sketch or I.I To of the (.rent
Washington, Feb. 16 Senator
Hannn Is dead after lying uncon
scious for fifteen hours. He will
have a public funeral in the Senate
on Wednesday and will be buried
in Cleveland on Friday.
Marcus A. Hanna, United States
Senator from Ohio since 1897, and
the most prominent of the fi tends
and advisers of the late President
McKinley, was born nt New Lisbon !
(now Lisbon), Ohio, on Sept. 24,
1837. He had made his home in ,
Cleveland since 1852. Senator
Hanna directed the campaign which
secured the nomination aud election
and re-election of William McKin
ley as president. During the last
few months his name was promi
nently mentioned for the Presiden
tial nomination this year.
Hanna received a poor school
Education but one of the best of
business educations. He became
an employe in the wholesale grocery
house of his fnther and on the lat
ter's death tk entire charge of
the business, laying at that time
the foundations of the immense for
tune which he now leaves. He
married at the age of thirty aud
realizing the importance of the coal
aud iron industry of the Great
Lukes-identified himself in a small
way with that business. By strict
industry he enlarged the scope of
his activity year after year until he
became a great power in the finan
cial world of Cleveland. It was
through the business of one of his
great coal mines that he became
acquainted with McKinley. At
lal time the latter was an obscure
lawyer and had taken charge of
some cases in which lie defended a
small baud of striking miners.
Their business dealings at that time
ripened into a friendship which
lasted through the vagaries of many
political campaigns until the death
of the President.
In late years Hanna has been con
nected with some great business
enterprises. He was head of the
firm of M. A. Hanna & Co., coal
operators; director of the Globe
Ship Manufacturing Company; pres
ident of the Union National Bank;
president of the Cleveland City
Railway Company; president of
the Chapin Mining Company; aud
had extensile interests in other

On the 10th inst., the following

Commander-in-Chief of the Im
"Having left Sasebo on the 6th
inst., our torpedo flotilla nttacked
with great success the enemy's fleet
on the 8th inst., outside of the
harbor of Port Arthur. On the
next day at 10 a. in., our squadron
attacked the enemy for about forty
minutes. The enemy's fleet fled
into the harbor and at 1 p. m., we
ceased firing and withdrew. Our
ships were very slightly damaged,
none having lost their fighting
power. Our actual losses were four
killed and fifty-four wounded. The

The police of Kauai, under the
guidance of Mr. Sheriff Coney have
been quietly working on the Glen
nan murder case, with the invnlu
able assistance of Mr. Chester Do le
of Honolulu. Soonafter the murder
Mr. Coney suspecting that it was
due to the itinerant gamblers who
frequent the Japanese camps,
brought before the lower court of
Lihue about 28 men who were not
employed on the plantations and
had no visible means of support,
and charged them with vagrancy;
they were comruit'ed to jail fort
various terms. 1
During their stay in jail Mr. '
Chester Doyle examined and re-'
examined them, especially four who ,
were supposed ring leaders of the
gang. Finally they got them to
confess that the man who actually
did the deed had escaped to Hono
lulu. Mr. Coney thereupon dis
patched his deputy Mr. W. H. Rice
Jr. to find and arrest the man, aud
with the aid of Japanese detective,
succeeded in tracing the accused to
Kvti, where after a three days search
the man was arrested. He was
brought to Liliue and safely lodged
This morning he was brought be
fore the district magistrate Judge
Kahele for preliminary bearing.
The evidence led was so strong aud
of such a convincing nature that
the court did not hesitate about
committing the accused to the
Crand Jury to answer to the charge
of murder in the first degree.
Then the accused, seeing, it is
supposed, the hopelessness of any
defence aud being weighed down
by his sense of guilt made a full
confession, iu which he was under
stood to state that he was the one
who actually lit the fuse that ex
ploded the giant powder, resulting
in the death of Mr. Glennan, and
that for this purpose bemused eight
sticks of dynamite. The Garden

Honolulu, Feb. 15. .Director
Jared G. Smith of the Agricultural
Jix'periment Station returned this
morning 111 the Helcue from his
trip through the Koua and Kau dis
tricts. In speaking of the trip Mr.
Smith prefaced his remarks with
the statements that he had just
completed the toughest trip he had
ever made. He was iu the midst
of the storm during his travels but
reports that iro special damage was
done in Koua and Kau. The water
washed considerable top dressing off
the road to Kailua aiuj deposited
immense boulders iu the midst of
the road near Napoopoo.
Mr. Smith visited the Hawaiian
Agricultural and Hutcliinson plan
tations to study the leaf-hopper
situation. "I found the leaf-hopper
bad in places, but I think it will
pass without doing an alarming
amount of damage. The latter part
of the season is likely to sec a di
minution of he leaf-hopper. Of
course much depends upon the
weather. With continued warm
weather the cane will be alright.
Cold storms may cause a set-back.
We have had an exceptionally warm
winter and if this continues I see
no serious damages in prospect.
"The red spider, lady-birds and
parasites that prey upon the leaf-
hopper are getting in their work
and I anticipate that the new cane
will grow away from the hopper."
