Tho conviction of a Japanese

A good number of piioplo criti
cise President McKiuley for his

fail to agree, however, that it was
an interesting experiment that did
no harm. Every Tom, Dick aud
Uany iutimato with tho President
ban been expressing views to in
dicate that McKiuloy is hedging.
Au attempt is mado to make tho
people believo thoe views aro in
spired. As a result the criticism
is offered that tho President
should speak out. Why should
ho speak? McKinley's utterances
during his trip in the West and
South are on record, aud all tho
administration forces are contered
ou the ratification of tho peace
treaty. If tho march of events

American shipping laws ore
consuming tho usual amount of
timo at this Bossion of Congress
and with apparently tho usual
chance of satisfactory settlement.
The Hanna-Pnynobill is tho most
important measure, but tho
numerous amondments that are
being offered aro likely to wipe
a goollysharo of tho benefits.
This is a subsidy measure, good
iu it-) way, but an unfortunate
feature of steamship subsidies is
that tho companies securing a
bonus enlist their efforts against
granting assistance to lines that
might run in opposition. Thus in
many iustancos tho subsidized
lines have beborae tho allies of
the fruo shipping advocates, with
the result Unit all shipping legis
lation has beon blocked.
Tho curious situation is now
presouted of tho United States
furnishing plates and steol for
foreign ship yards ond yet Araer-
can shipping on the high seas is iu
marked minority. Various schemes
have been proposed to assist the
American merchant murine, with
indifferent success. Congressman
Dingloy hit upon tho only proper
solution, but thus far thoso inter
ested in foreign shipping have
been able to forestall positive
action. His plan was to extend
tho priuoiple of protection by
levying a ton percent additional
duty ou all goods brought to tho
country in foreign baltoms. This
systom and this alono will enable
American ship owners to pay tho
higher roto of wages to American
BOiimen and consequently increase
tho domands upon American ship
yards aud put our merchant
marine in a position to compete
with its powerful foroian rivals.

Ono of tho greatest outrages that
has over como to my uotico is
being porpetratod by tho presont
Board of Education; both tho
outrage aud tho Hoard poimittiug
it to continue aro a disgrace to tho
community and deserve the con
doiuuation of all good people.
The outrage above roferred to
is tho actinu, or rather inaction of
tho Hoard of Education in per
mitting the herding and coufiniug
of tho lowest dregs of society on
tho streets and approachos to the
St. Louis Collego, where- over five
hundred young and susceptible
children must pass at least twice
All children learn sufficient evil
on tho streets without pamding
beforo thorn tho depravity of tho
human race, aud thus compel
them to witness vulgarity that
would bring a blush of shamo to
tho face of an Indian savage. It
is the duty of the otlioials iutrust
ed with tho government of this
country to suppress nil vice nnd
protect tha moral welfare of our
futuro oitizous, aud not permit
their moral sensibilities to bo out
raged iu tho manner above stated
Any person or Hoard that would
countenance such n crying shame
should bo rowurdod by compul
sory residouco iu one of tho dons
of vico that lino the said streets.
It certainly appears that tho solec
tion of the prcBcut district was
premeditated aud malicious, ub
thoro is no other 'locality iu this
city whoreiu tho hording of those
creatures could produce more evil
If uiulico promoted tho action
of selecting this district, then the
person who coucoived the idea and
all those sanctioning such action
must have been in leaguo with the
devil, for u moro damnable scheme
for accomplishing their purpose
at tho expouBe of inuocont chil
dren was never conceived.

Editoii Evening Bulletin:
Having beon away from homo, I
have not had an opportunity until
now to poru'o the communication
in your paper from tho Agent of
tho Land Oilice, and your editori
al. Sinco roading them I must
now avow that I was mistaken as
to tho government official's actions
in this mattor, though I cannot re
froin from expressing disapproval
of the low in the tho caso. The
cause of the mistake was this:
I applied at tho land office in
1893 or 18'J1 aud was told there
was no government land on this
is(and to disposo of. I find that
the laud iu question was then in
tho hands of tho Education de
partment and not in tho Land
Offico department. Of course, not
being acquainted with the red
tune rules of tho departments, I
concluded that there was no land
belonging to tho government at
all. Ilenco my mistako. Of
courao this was before tho timo of
the present Commissioner of
Agriculture whose efforts to settle
all vacant laudB on bona Gde rod-
dents ore eminently worthy of tho

The Philadelphia will bo hero
about a week yet, and porhaps
more. She will bo put into the
very best condition beforo sailing
for Samoa. In o talk with some
of tho officers today as to the
mission of tho Philadelphia, tbay
simply shrugged their shoulders
and said tliHt they were going
down to show the Germans that
Uncle Sam had not forgotten li in
little port of the bargain. Thoy
did not think they would bo down
thent more than six weeks.
That tho intontion is to havo
tho Philadelphia return to this
port after a short stay iu Apia,
Samoa, seems to bo pretty well
settled. It is nn old saying that
"straws show whioh way tbo'wind
blows," and indeed this would
seem to bo a cano in point. Mrs.
Kautz, wife of Hoar-Admiral
Kautz, as well as Mrs. Miller,
wifo of tho Flag Lieutenant and
wives of oue or two others of the
officers, will bo in Honolulu in
tho noar futuro. At all events,
whothor tho Philadelphia remains
for n long or short period in
Samoa, she will return here for a
stay before returning to tho Coast.
Boar Admiral Kautz stated it
might bo possible that tho Phila
delphia would remain horo a year
upon her return.
Bear-Admiral Kautz is very
well liked by all thp officqrs and
men ubanid tho Philadelphia.
Ono of tho officers said today: "I
do not believe Admiral Kautz
over did an unjust act toauy man
iu his life."
Admiral Kautz is very much in
love with the Islands, aud looks
forward with a great deal of pleas
urn to a moro extended stay hero.
Captain White of tho Philadel
phia states that evory man on tho
ship will be given shore liberty
beforo tho trip to Apia, Samoa, is
mode, This is boing dono be
cause the mon had little or no
liberty while tho Philadelphia
was in Control America. '

Ohicngo, Fob. 2. Mr. and Mrs.
Arthur Loo, of Richmond, Va.,
who were tho guests of Admiral
Dewey on his flagship, tho Olym
pic, for a week iu tho early part
of December, aro at tho Auditori
um Annex. Mrs. Loo is the
daughter of ox-Sonator Davis of
West Virginia, and tho roport
wns current a short time ago that
she was tho bearor of a message
from Bear Admiral Dewey tq
President McKiuloy urging for
state reasons that ho bo appointed
Mrs. Loe pronounced tho story
to be absurd and without the
slightest foundation. Sho was at
a loss at first to understand how
it could have originated, but after
war Is said it must have started
from a personal lottor which she
wrote to a friond in this country,
in which she expressed the opini
on that Bear Admiral Dewey
should bo promoted to tho posi
tion of Admiral, both out of re
gard for tho best interests of the
American occupation as well oh
for the purposo of removing what
was u source of much humiliation
to him because of his being out
ranked by the Admirals of other
navios. Becauso of this fact and
because of tho duties imposed by
naval international etiquetlo, Ad
miral Dewey wbb made to appear
iu the light of an inforior as com
pared with Admiral Dietrich, of
tho Gorman navy or the Admirals
of other countries whonovor thoy
should visit Maniln.
Mr. aud Mrs. Loo said it was
tho opinion of the American offi
core aud other intelligent poople
at Manila that when tho natives
como to a bettor understanding ot
tho Americans tho present pre
judice will disappear and the
nativtB will become earnest sup
porters of American rulo.
They say it is Idle to talk of tho
Filipinos Going able to maintain a
govornmont of their own; that
outside of their leaders tbey aro
exceedingly ignorant and would
bo the tools ot selusli and un
scrupulous lenders, who would
soon plungo tho islands into a
state of anarchy through their
struggles lor leadership.
