A Washington special of May
24 to tho San Francisco Chroni
olo contains tho following:
WIjou the tariff bill is under
discussion one of tbe first amend
ments to bo proposed will bo tho
restoration of tbo Hnwniian re
ciprocity clauBO of tbo Dingloy
bill. This was shown in tbo Bo
publican caucus today wbou tho
subject was brought up. Fryo of
Maino said ho would fight for tho
Ha waiians, while Nelson of Min
nesota insisted that the free entry
of sugar under the Soutite sche
dule would mean a gift to tho isl
ands of nearly 811,000,000 tho
Perkins said that whila this
country was in honor bound to
give Hawaii a year's notico of
abrogation, ho would propose that
the Senate express its belief that
reciprocity should be real, aud to
compromise by granting a differ
ential of one-half a cont to the
islands. This would bo prefer
able to the present arrangemont.
This mot with favor iu tho caucus,
and the Senator tonight expresses
the belief that ho would be ablo to
secure this arrangement when the
bill is under consideration. Details
of the schedule will bo considered
at tomorrow's caucus.
Perkins said tonight that while
San Francisco was urging the
continuation of tho treaty, country-districts
urge abrogation, and
he is compelled to act as outlined
in doing bis whole duty to the
State. He is now of the opinion
that the Bliding scale, Btartmg at
one-half a cent for the first year
and disappearing in five years,
would give sufficient to Hawaiians
and at the samo time give Cali
fornia beet interests, in which be
has tho greatest faith, a chance to
develop. Perkins believes that in
five years California will be iu n
position to produce all the sugar
needed in the country.
In tho early part of tho caucus
Senator Aldrioh was called upon
for an explanation of tho bill,
and some of the amendments.
During tbe remarks Senator Cul
lom called for a statement on the
sugar schedulo, over which there
bad been so much controversy.
The explanation presented was
largely technical, but the Senators
who heard him understood that
the Honse schedule would largely
exclude the coarse and low grades
from Java, tho Philippine islands
and other points. Tbo effect of
tho House schedule would bo to
shut out the lower and cheaper
grades of sugar, the system of
compound duties presented by the
Senate bill being for tho purpose
of making this equality.
Western Senators referred to
the wool schedules. Senator
Warren of Wyoming, appoaring
as the spokesman for the wool
growers of the West, said that tbo
duties proposed by the committee
were, iu his judgment, inadequate,
and ho thought there should bo
some increase on the lines of tho
amendments proposed by tbo
Senator Lodge of Massachusetts
spoke against tho duty on hides,
saying bo did not seo how be
could avoid voting for an amend
ment which proposed placing
hides on tho freo list. This state
ment raised a storm among West
ern men, who said if such a
method was proposed they would
bo compelled to voto for plaoing
certain articles on the free list or
for reducing tbo duty on thorn.
They did not oxpect that tho Dem
ocrats would voto with tbcm to in
Tho Westerners announced that
to settle with the Eastorn nion
who voted to reduce tho duties on
thoir products, thoy would vote to
roduco the duty ou articlos whioh
their pooplo purchased nnd did
not produce It was this stato of
affairs that brought forth the pro
position of Senator Burrows to
submit proposed changes to the
Republican monibms of the
Fiuanco Committee aud thru to
tho caucus. Thoro was no talk of
bolting and no Senator said he
would voto against the bill ns a
whole. It was ou tho matter of
schedules that they disagreed.

Alaska's horrors and hopes were

Dr. JackRon declared that in
fanticide, witchcraft, polygamy,
the murder of parents and other
practises of benighted and da
graded paganism prevailed to a
terrible extent among tbroo or

their own babies.
Dr. Jackson found that in some
tribes it was the practise of child

when they got old. This custom
had become firmly established.
Tho grip had swopt the coast of

BASEBALL IN MINIATURE
A I1AMK I.tYKII AT AftV PIV

i:ieclrlrlly hui I'iijiiici-..
Baseball enthusiasts are very
much iutereHted in a now inven
tion for reproducing in miniatuie
a ball game played at my dis
tanco away. Of :otirno electricity
is the agent that accomplishes
this. Tho miniaturo diamond is
erected on a stage in a public hall,
aud as tho spectators outer they
behold a platform sloping to the
stage at a good angle, so that overy
player can be soon at any portion
of tho houso. Tho platform ie
painted green, to roprcsont the
grass, and the base plates are
marked out. Tho grounds are in
closed by fences, aud in tbo center
field is a largo scoro board on
which nppoar the scores of the
games iu other citios, whioh are
posted by innings.
So well has the system been
developed that a scorer sitting in
Boston can noto' ovory play of a
game iu Cleveland aud re
produce tho etory of the game
so that it will comparo ex
actly with a atory writton by one
who has actually seen tho game.
In miuiaturo baseball overy ball,
overy strike, every foul, every hit,
aud every fioldiug play is given,
and given by signals in such a
manner that tho spectator can un
derstand without a word of expla
nation irom lue operator, urouna
balls aro indicated by white
olectric lights in front of eaoh
player. If gathered by an infield
a whito light, representing the
ball, immediately afterward ap
pears in tho hands of the infield,
and then if the ball appears is
the hands of a baBoman ahead of
the runner, the man is out. If
the ball if .fumbled, a red light
appears at tho feet of tbe fioldor,
and in oaso of the catcher tbii
means a passed ball. If the light
fiickors in the hands of tho fielder,
a fumble is indicated, and the red
aud white light together indicate
a wild throw. Fly balls, fair or
foul, are shown by white or groom
lights suspended in tho air, fol
lowed by a whito light in tho
bands of oither in or outfielder, as
the case may bo.
The whole schemo is controlled
by an operator who worka on a
Bwitchboard controlling 147 wires.
There aro thirty-two signals for
tho baso-runnerB. Tho puppots
move their lees by a systom of
cog-whoela while iu motion. The
coaches are put in a state of vio
lent agitation by means of cords.
A great deal of fun for the specta
tors is caused by tho way the
base-runners take a lead from the
base in response to tho urging of
the coaches. As oach man goes
to the bat ho takes a right-handed
or a loft-handed position, as tho
case may bo. In miniaturo ball
each man carrios his own bat with
him all the time, this being a de
parture from what is seen in tho
regular game. It works all
right in the theater, however.
In front of tho platform on
which tho diamond is seen is a
box with four compartments. Ono
shows tho strikes, another tho
balls nnd the othor two the runs
scored, provision being made for
tho scoring of nino runs in any
iuuiugs. All this is controlled by
The batting ordor appears on
two largo blackboards on the right
and left ot tuo proscenium, ana
by moans of an olectric light uoxt
to the uamo of the batsman one
can always tell who is at bat. In
fact, a spootator entering the the
ater at any time of the nf teruooa
can tell the scoro, tho innings;
played, tho uuinbor of men out
and the man batting.
