Impeachment of Judge Swayne.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 24. The Senate today organized the court
to try Judge Swayne on the impeachment charges.
Judge Charles Swayne, of the Northern District of Florida, is to be
impeached before the bar of the Senate by the House of Representatives
for "high crimes and misdemeanors." The investigation against Judge
Swayne laid bare a large number of extremely damaging allegations,
with reference to his judicial conduct of the business of his court. It
was shown that he had not resided within the State as required; that in
his decisions and action in several railroad receiverships his course was
open to grave question; that while a railroad was in the hands of a re
ceiver, he had been given by the receiver, his own appointee, free trans
portation in a private car for himself aud his friends, including a trip to
the Pacific, and lastly, that in his accounts to the Government for his
expenses, while he took oath that they were $10 a day, evidence before
the committee showed that they were from one-third to one-half of this.
His misdemeanor and corruption rests upon his expense account.
Judge Charles Swayne was born August 10, 1842, at Guyencourt,
Deleware, and was appointed Judge in 1880. He is a graduate of the
law department of the University of Pennsylvania, and for some years
practiced law iu Pennsylvania. He went to Florida in 1885, in 1888
was defeated for election to the supreme court bench of that state. It
is seventy-four years since the House has impeached a member of the
Federal Judiciary. Then Judge Peck, of Missouri, was presented for
misconduct in disbarring a lawyer. The Senate refused to convict him,
21 to 22. Judge Chase and Judge Addison, of Pennsylvania, aud Judge
Pickering, of New Hampshire, are three other judges who were earlier
impeached in the history of the Federal Government, but of these only
the last was convicted.
Pretoria, South Africa, Jan. 27. A diamond of 3032 karats, valued at

Favorable Report Made.
Honolulu, Jan. 25. The following cablegrams have been exchanged:
Washington, D. C, Jan. 24, 1905.
'Committee will report general harbor bill carrying $400,000 for Hono
lulu and for survey Hilo harbor. KUHIO.
Honolulu, Jan. 24, 1905.
Congratulations. All interested should now redouble efforts toward
final passage. CARTER.
The above wireless message from Honolulu, gives Delegate Kuhio's
cablegram to the Governor and the Governor's reply thereto. The
closing paragraph of the Governor's message is a diplomatic answer iu
view of Kuhio's attitude towards the alleged officiousness of Secretary
Atkinson. In his annual report, Governor Carter asked for an appro
priation of $250,000 for the improvement of Honolulu harbor, for a re
fund of $172,000 expended by the Territory since annexation in the
care of the harbor and lighthouse service, and for an appropriation of
$10,000 for preliminary survey for the proposed Hilo breakwater. Del
egate Kalanianaofe has written a friend in Hilo, that it is useless to ex
pect an appropriation for a federal building at this session of Congress,
and indicates that he is bending every effort to secure the $to,ooo for a
survey. There is a marked tendency toward economy by Congress and
the building bill will be materially curtailed.
In Honor of Burns.
The Hilo Burns Club are renowned for the excellence of their enter
tainments, and Saturday night's affair added another success to their
reputation. The early part of the evening was devoted to a literary and
musical piogram, which was pleasing and entertaining. As a prelude
R. Forbes in costume played a bagpipe refrain, which was roundly ap
plauded. George Lilicoe rendered "Afton Water," a vocal solo aud
Thos. Scott of Hakalau gave a selection on the violin, both of which
were well received. In response to an encore, Mr. Scott played "O
Mary Wilt Thou Gang wi me?" Mrs. Louise Hapai rendered a con
tralto solo "John Anderson, My Joe" which called forth a response
"Annie Laurie," which she gave in a delightful manner. Rev. CurtiSf
E. Shields gave a brief address on the life aud character of Robert Burns,
the patron saint of Scotlaud which was both scholarly and instructive.
Mr. H. Turner with his deep baritone rendered "Ye Banks and Braes,"
and "Robin a Dale." Miss Margaret Tutt was in splendid voice and
pleased her audience with a rendition of the Scotch song "Last May a
Braw Wooer" and was induced to respond to an encore with "For the
Sake o' Somebody.
W. C. Cook recited Burns' "Epistle to Davie" and later responded
with the poem "When Burns was Born." There was an exhibition of
Scottish dancing, F. M. Anderson giving the Highland fling and
Kenneth Cameron the "Sword Dance" in a clever aud graceful manner.
Miss Tutt and Mr. Cook made a pretty tableaux in their reudering of
the vocal duet "Hunting Tower" but refused to respond to a prolonged
and enthusiastic encore. The closing number, a vocal trio in which
Messrs. Lillicoe, Turner and Scott took part, singing iu arealistic man
ner, "0, Willie Brew'd a Peck 0' Maut," proved the climax ol the
entertainment. With a will, they responded to the continued applause
which followed their first efforts, with singing "The Lass o' Killi
crankie," which was truly a Scotch drinking song. After a short speech
of thanks on behalf of the Club by Mr. Cook, the concert was brought
to an end with "Auld Lang Syne."
The remainder of the evening was spent in dancing, Scotch reels and
schottishes being an important feature. Refreshments were served about
midnight and a delightful evening was enjoyed. I. B. Schoen, assisted
by Jas. Henderson, was master of ceremonies.
