JOHN McKEAGUE IS DEAD
Ad Oldtlmer Released From More

of Heela Sugar Plantation.
John McKoague died at the
Sanitarium, King stroet, nt 8:30
o'clock this morning. Ho wns G7
years of ogo and n uativo of Colo-
raiue, a town near Belfast, Ire
land. His last illness was five
weeks in duration, but his health
had been a lost quantity mauy
yoars. The funeral will tnko placo
from St. Andrew's Cathedral at
3:30 tomorrow afternoon.
Tho late Mr. MoKoaguo had
lived in the Hawaiian Islands
more than forty yoars. He was a
man of capacity and ontorprise.
About 1857 to 1859 ho bought a
fnrm in Nuunnu vnlley from ono
Reynolds, who had bepn raising
hay for bedding and selling ohia
firewood. Tho place was abovo
tbo lato John Wood's, whoro the
Honolulu dairy is now. Mr. Mc
Koague continued in tho samo Hue
for n while, but when ho had cull
od oft tho ohia forest began plant
ing sugar cane.
It wos in 1805, or somewhere
noar that timo, that Mt Mo
Keaguo took up land ou tutsKoo

lleeia sugar plantation. Tho need
cano for the first plnntiug wns got
from tho JNuuunu valley fnrm.
Mr. MoKoaguo made ti very valu

was offered half a million dollars
for it by San Fraucisco capitalists,
but ho refused; to soil for any
thing less thnn n whole million
Somo time in tho sevauties Mr.
McKenguo was thrown from a
horso and suffered an injury to
his head. From that timo ho was
nover himself again. Auotbor
man had to como into the man
agement of his plantation, nud tho

part ot tho seventies or nrst of tbo
oighties, tho fouuder of tho rial)
plantation had nothing of it loft
for himself but a tangled orop of
litigation. With the littlo moans
that bo could still command, Mr.
MoKeaguo fought in the courts
tbo battle to retrievo Ihb hard-
earned fortune. It is only a year

by all other sovereignties to pos

by constitutional limitations. Thnt
assumption is correct, based upon
tho fundamontnl canon of tho law
of nations. Tho United States may
intify its proposed treaty with
Spaiu, and no othor nation bus
any right to question its political
or constitutional authority to do

Undor tho latter head comes tho
question of acquiring territory.
All problems of oxpnnsion, Mr.
Gardiuer said, nrn political, uot
judicial, nnd therefore, not cover

It has full and comploto legisla

which belongs to legisla
