Htiltatlon with some of his Democratic
colleagues tonay, Introduced In the
House two resolutions aiming at tho
'I lie first Is as fallow:
"Whereas, tuo prices of sugarB havo
recently sevcrnl times been advanced,

lag tho Dulletln. Theso ate tho usual
tactics of the government organ.
The Interest which tho Advertiser
takes In tho Most Popular Captain vot

Again tho ofllclal organ of tho Ha
waiian government places tho nntlvo
Hawaiian In tho name list with the
American negro. And this comes from
tho official organization that professes
great friendship for tho llawallans.
Tho question might merit further dis
cussion If tho people wevo lot well
aw.arohow hollow and utterly devoid of
honesty Is this professed friendship;
and tho further fact that the United
StAtcs Congress will allow no discrimi
nation against nny race or class of peo
plo Included In tho citizenship of Hu-wall.
Ilrltleli hearts nro cheered by tli
continued iinco of both Hoberts an
llullcr with UieViMuwi tnai ihe Hoei
will soon bo forced to a last stand o
their own territory. Tho report tho
Gen. Cronjo has been surrounded Is uot
supported 1iy tho latest despatches,
which express a lively appreciation of
tho dangers from Cronjo's forces in
tho flold. Tho relief of Ladysmlth It
not already accomplished Is likely to
scoon bo a fact In consequence of the
withdrawal of Hocr forces to meet tho
advance of Itoberts and Kitchener.
Rapid headway mado on the Hawa
iian bill In tho Senate gives promise
that tho hopes for early passage of the
bill nro well founded. The most Im
portant amendment thus far reported
Is that rolatlvo to labor, which nulli
fies ovcry labor contract past, present
or future. Tho readiness with which
Senator Cullom accepted tho amend
ment shows conclusively that Hawa
ii's contract labor laws have passed
agreed upon tho name prlco per pound,
which Is prlmn facie evidence that a
trust or combination exists, for tho
purposo of destroying competition, in
order that enormous prollts may bo
realized; that the American Sugar Ro

for many years paid 12 per cent an
nually in dividends upon $3G,9GS,000 of

Washington, Feb. 19. After a dis
cussion of constitutional questions In
tho Senato today the bill providing for
n government of Hawaii was taken
Cullom, of Illinois, In charge ot tho
measure, explained Its provisions sec
tion by section, elaborating the neces
sarily condensed language of tho bill.
Tillman was disposed to criticise tho
bill, as Indicated by his Interruptions
of Cullom, becauso property and educa
tional qualifications for voters and
office holders wero required, Inasmuch

try to Southern States demanding ulml

Cullom said tho matter had been
considered most carefully by tho For

means ot protecting tho Interests of
tho Islands and their citizens from dis
order and contusion the restricted suf
frage qualifications hail been adopted.
No discrimination was shown against

Eight thousand persons, homeless and
nearly naked, were In quarantlno and

the idea that any kind of a suit Is good
