Chances of n free franchise In Hti
"woll wero never better. Tho decision
ol the Committee on Territories to do
avsay with tho property (niallllcutlon
is a distinct gain for tho people. As
Congresa becomes nioro thoroughly ac
quainted with tho conditions In Hawaii,
tho possibility of tlicsu Islands being
granted n thoroughly American gov
ernment In which American laws nnd
customs aro pjcdomlnnnt, Is fast be
coming an assured probability.
A good sized garrison and naval sta
tion for Honolulu Is a proposition that
meets general favor among tho pcoplo
of the city. The moro national work
hero the better. It means money for
large and small merchants and the ad
dition of u good class of pcoplo to tho
community. To call for an Increased
garrison for fear of our Inability to
cope with tho riotous tendencies of nn
Asiatic population would bo nu ndmls
slon of weakness, that would do more
to reduce tho value of securities than
any body or Ameilcan soldiers can
RELEASE OF JAPANESE
Tho Mower of the Ilrltlsh in my has
marched up another hill and down
again, leaving behind a teirlblu trail of
dead nnd wounded to attest tho power
of the Doer fighters. As usual Duller
has made a magnificent letreat Al
though able to retire In good order,
tbero Is nothing to show that his army
dlil tho lloeis any scilous damage. The
power to resist a second advanco has
not weakened. Tho lloers continue to
win. It Is by no means unlikely that
the new actllty of the lliltlsh navy
poi tends a bold move; possibly the
seizure of Delagoa hay. Cutting ort
this souice of Uoor supply seems to he
(Jreat Hritaln's only chance for bilng
lng the war to a speedy end.
CAYPLE88 AND HARTWLLL.
Tho Washington Post of January
Tho hearings on the Hnwnlinn bill

of those coming horo for tho govern
ment to secure legislation against the
Mr. Alfied S. Hartwcll, special agent
or tno government of Hawaii, contra-
dcted tho statement, but Mr. Caypless
did not withdraw It Ho asscitcd that
the present administration of Hawaii
was unfit to rulo tho natives, nnd that
the latter should havo the fosteilm;
rale of this government.
New York. Jan. 29. A special to the
Sun from Wubhlngton says: It was
learned today from ofilclal sources that
tho President intends to lssuo within
tho next thirty days his Phlllpplno
proclamation extending amnesty to
tho insurgents nnd denouncing as out
laws and bandits nil who do not avail
themselves of its terms. This deter
mination was reached after soveral
conferences with tho Secretary of War
and othor members of the Cabinet.
The proclamation, it is announced.
will contain first a declaration of tho
cad of tho insurrection in tho Islands.
This will ho followed by tho granting
of amnesty to all insurgents who lay
down their arms within n specified
time. Tho tlmo has not been decided
upon, but tho President bellovcs sixty
days sufficient, and this meets the np
roval of tho Secretary of War.

noon, when Minister Cooper drove up
to tho gato and gavo tho "tycoon" un
expected ordcis that changed the plans
ho had Just divulged regarding tho

lease tho Japaneso from quarantlno to
morrow. Minister Cooper Informed
him that ho had to make placo at tho
camp for about 400 Japanese, Chtneso
and Portuguese from tho Fowler's yard
neighborhood. To do this It would bo
necessary to release tho Japanese to
day. Mr. Dole immediately on entering
the grounds ordered tho cntlro lucky
thirteen hundred and odd Japaneso to
assemble In tho drill shed. To hasten
a few laggards tho boss grasped a sharp
stick and gently prodded and slapped
men, women and children until none

these assistants tho superintendent nil-

received with only very modorato np-'
plause, as If tho pcoplo wero not wor
rying much over their treatment In

exnmplcsetthcm In detention, and keep
themsches nnd their living premises
clean when they regained their liberty
The 275 Chinese in tho camp will not
bo released until a week from last Sat
urday, tho day they received their fu-
migntlon and disinfecting hath.
To segregate the different nation
alities coming fresh into camp today, it
was necessary for Superintendent
Doyle to engage carpenters for erecting
partition femes. Among tho altera
tions required was tho removal of the
bath house. This was done without
rollers or tackle. A strong pleco of
scantling was fastened to cither sldo
of the structure, which Is 20 to 25 feet
long, and ns many stalwart Japaneso
as could got a grip on theso handles

setting It down over a new cesspool

KENTUCKY S TWO GOVERNORS

Fiankfoit, Ky., Jan. 31. Kentucky
now has two Governors, each claiming
full do facto and do Juro powers of
office. William Gobel, fighting death
In his looms at tho Capitol Hotel, a
martyr to his political ambition, was
given tho oath of olllco as Governor by
Chief Justice Hazelrigg at 0 o'clock
this evening. Tho oath was adminis
tered to mm as tho result of tho action
of tho Doraocratlo members of tho
Legislature who signed n resolution
declaring Goobel and J. C. W. Beckham
tho rightful executive officers of tho
commonwealth. Propped up In his
bed, Mr. Goebel took tho oath of office,
and Immediately signed a proclamation
disbanding tho mllltla gathered horo
under Oovennor Taylor's orders. Ho
also appointed Bilgadler General John
D. Castleman, United States Volun
teers, retired, Adjutant General to
take charge of tho troops.
The rontcst between tho two men,
each claiming full legal powers as Gov
ernor of tho State, has now reached Its
climax. Until 0 o'clock this evening
nil tho events of tho day seemed to go
In Governor Taylor's favor. Instead
of bolng In tho position ho wns In two
days ngo, when it was only with tho
greatest efforts that tho Republican
membeis of the Legislature wero kept
together upon tho floor nnd thoro scorn
ed no wny for tho party to turn to savo
itself, nil the cards seemed for the tlmo
to havo follen Into his hands. Whero
Inst night overyono had predicted that
tho shooting of Goebel meant ruin for
tho Republican claims, tho very re-
verso seemed to bo the case. Now tho
issue Is such that no ono can predict
Tho possible eventuality freely dls-
