I lie (Inl) ConlcM of Republican
San Francisco, Juno 23. 'flic
coiivctitinn lind jtiu one little whiff
of strife today. It didn't amount
to anything, but it mmelike n cool
ing lireee ncross tbc dead and
dread desert of tlic programme.
An effort was made to net common
justice for Hawaii. Of course it
failed. Tbe poor Hnwaiians came
5,000 miles to see tbe show, and
the show, as such, is bunko. The
Republican National Committee
had told them they were to have
six delegates, and six made the
long journey. Then they found
that but five seats had been allotted
to them. One seat had been stolen
deliberately because some unexpect
ed and unallotted delegates had
come from l'oito Rico and the
Philippines, and it was nccavtnry
to make places for them.
Hut the Committee on Rules
met and rubbed a rebuff into the
Hawaiians. It allowed them only
two otes instead of six. All other
Territories were given six votes.
Alaska, not a Territory, but a Fed
eral district, had been allowed four
votes by the National Committee,
but the Committee on Rules in
creased the allowance to six.
Could anything be more unjust?
Rvery child knows that Hawaii
has more population than Alaski.
It has more than the State of Neva
da, by a long way. Rut the Com
mittee on Kules Headed iy a queer ,
old "party" named General Henry
II. Bingham of Pennsylvania, cut
off the Hawaiians and increased the
Senatoi J. K. Foraker of Ohio
led the fight to give the Hawaiians
their plain rights. Senator Foraker
offered the following amendment:
"Resolved, That the report of
the committee on rules be amended
so as to allow six delegates from
Hawaii with six votes in conformity
with her sister territories of Arizona,
New Mexico, Oklahoma, Indian
Territory and Alaska." He got a
hearing for Governor Carter of
Hawaii, who made an impassioned
plea for the amendment.
"Gentlemen of the convention of
the Republican party," he said,
"there seems to be an impression
on the part of some that Hawaii is
not a Territory. I wish to call their
attention to the fact that Hawaii is
on the map of the United States
and is now one of its possessions.
God grant the occasion may not
arise, but if war comes in the
Pacific, the Sandwich Islands will
be necessary to the American people
and Hawaii will not be found want
ing." Senator Hopkins of Illinois led
the opposition. There wasn't a
shred of reasoning why Hawaii
shouldn't have the votes, but tlu
programmers had some sort of idea
that they wanted to cut down the
The West, with the exception of
Nevada voted with Hawaii.
The little Sagebrush State that,
on population hasn't a third of
Hawaii's right to six votes, cast
her six solidly against the islands.
These six lost Hawaii her right
and the Nevadans had traveled
across the country with the Hawaii
ans. It was what we call in the
West a "stinking trick" and the
only way I can account for it is the
fact that Colonel H. K. Maxson an
affable sort of windbag from Ne
vada, was the Secretary of the
Committee on Rules.
The territories voted "No" with
the exception of Oklahoma, which
cast two ayes and and Hawaii,
which declined to vote at all. The
vote resulted, 497 ayes, 490 noes.
The result was to allow the i.six
Hawaii delegates two votes.
A war writer for one of the Lon
don papers says facetiously:
"Your correspondent secured the
latest issue of the Port Arthur
Daily Novi Krai, which bears at its
head the following notice: 'No
paper is issued on days when the
Japs open fire upon the fortress,
for the Chinese working our hand
presses regularly decamp -at the
first shot. There is no way of re
straining thc-e heathen, who even
disiegi'rd the orders of the viceroy
and commandant. ' "
New Yoik, June 21. Kvidclirc
of n startling nature, which doubt-
less will have a most important
bearing on the ultimate result of
the Coroner's inquiry into the
General Slocum disaster, was forth
coming at the inquest today.
Perhaps the most unexpected in
cident was the refusal to answer
questions on the part of II. LuihI
berg, a United States steamboat in
spector, who was supposed to have
inspected the life preservers and the
hull of the Slocum. His refusal
was based on the ground that an
answer might tend to incriminate
him and he acted on the advice of
Th. Coroner committed Lund
berg to the House of Detention,
but later accepted $500 bail for his
appearanceat the hearing tomorrow,
which was satisfactory to the
Assistant District Attorney.
Second Pilot Weaver of the Slo
cum testified that he had purchased
the fire hose for that boat and Gar
van introduced evidence to show
that the price paid was 40 cents a l
foot, less 6 per cent., or 16 cents a
"Don't you know that you can't
buy good fire hose for less than a
dollar or a dollor and a half a foot?"
"I. don't know anything about
the price of hose," responded
Weaver also declared that there
had been no fire drill on the Slo
cum this year. ,
Daniel O'Neill, who, according
to his sworn statement, had never
worked on a boat until he was hired
on the Slocum a short time ago, ad
mitted that he had jumped into a
rowboat filled with people from the
Slocum, capsizing it. Asked if he
saved any one, he .said others were
doing that and he was not an ex
prt swimmer. He swam ashore
himself, however. O'Neill de
clared he never saw a fire drill on
Referring to the efforts to throw
water on the fire when it was first
discovered, O'Neill told of the
bursting of the hose. He ran and
go the rubber washing hose, but
the coupling would not fit the sand
pipe. This was some of the sen
sational testimony brought out.

The yacht Lurline is due to
arrive at Hilo about August 15,
having completed her voyage in
the South Seas, which included
Tahiti, Samoa, Marqueses and
Guam. The last news received
from the Lurline was from Pago
Pago, Samoa. She was in port
about two weeks awaiting the
arrival of Captain Sinclair's son
Arthur, who joined his parents
About the 15th of June the Lur
line people were to sail for Fiji
where they expected to enjoy a
two-week's stay cruising among
the islands of that group. From
Fiji the Lurline goes to Guam and
then back to Hawaii. This is
about a month ahead of her sche
dule, aild it is possible she will
visit Kauai and Oahu before leaving
for San Pedro, the Lurliuc's home

Guayaquil, Kcuador, June 27.
Serious riots have been caused by
a raising of the water rates in this
city, A mob of 5000 attacked the
I'nrkrr lliiucli PIkIiI.
The chief points in dispute seem)
to be: Colonel Samuel Parkermaiu-
tains, that he is surviving partner
of the partnership between himself
'and John P. Parker, who by his1
will direcled that the pattucrship
should be continued by his heir,
John P. Parker the younger, who ,
died under age, but leaving n (
daughter who according, to the (
same will should take his place I
As such surviving partner Col
onel Parker clnitns, that he has
sole control of the business, and,
therefore, the right to remove Mr.
A. W- Carter from I lie management
On the other hand, Mr. A. W.
Carter says, that, as the guardian
and trustee of the heir of John P.
Parker, he has equal puthorily
with Colonel Samuel Parker; and
besides this, that Colonel Parker,
when he made Mr. A. W. Catter
manager of the Parker Ranch,
divested liimsell ol all turtlicr con
trol of the place or business and
gave whatever authority he had lo
Mr. A. W. Carter, without reserv
ing the right to resume or take
nwnv from Mr. Carter the authoriij
he gave him.
Colonel Parker denies this claim
of Mr. A. W. Carter, and alleges,
that he has not, according to law,
the power to depute his nuthority
as surviving partner to Mr. A. W.
Carter or anyone else; and that he
never attempted as Mr. Carter
clnitns he did to depute his
authority to Mr. Carter. He then
charges Mr. Carter with misman
aging the business and expending
large sums of money uselessly and
extravagantly and contrary to jthe
interests Df both his ward and Col
In this way, by charge and coun
ter accusation, the quarrel develops,
and, as the property is large and
the history of the affair a lengthy
one, the details are so numerous
that the litigation is already taking
most of the time of two of our courts
and nearly a score of our leading
It has been shown in the Hama
kua experiment that tare and skill
will produce good tobacco in these
islands. It has been disputed only
by those who raise tobacco as they
do forage grass and mourn to find
One of the drawbacks to small
farming in this country is the idea
that one "may tickle the soil with
a hoe and have it laugh a harvest."
When the soil does not laugh then
the man with a hoe begins to mope
and say things about the bad out
look for agriculture. The con
dition precedent to good farming
here or wherever fine crops are de
sired is some knowledge of soils
and plenty of "care and skill."
The building up of the sugar in
dustry emphasizes that. There
were enough of carping critics of
sugar here in the early days. A
few haphazard efforts to grow cane,
resulting in positive failures, gave
point to the jeer that nothing could
grown on the islands but what the
natives raised on their kuleanas,
taro and sweet potatoes being the
staples. But men who brought
brains and science to the task made
possible a sugar crop worth $25,
Such men are experimenting
with tobacco and doing well
They are here to teach others how
and where to grow the crop and il
enterprising landholders know
what is good for themselves and
the Territory, they will take hold
and give tobacco a fair trial.
There is no visible reason why the
weed of solace should not become
, of as much advantage to our export
trade as it is, relatively speaking,
to that of Cuba and the Philippines
