ALBERT JAEGER IS DEAD
lioog the Longest Id Residence of
Forelgcers Id Islands.
Aa Accomplished Botanlul Amateur-Promoter
of TutalM Forest Pioneer Insurant
igent Promloent Club Hid.
Albert Jaeger died at his boms in
King street, opposlto Walklkl turn, at
8": 80 o'clock this forenoon. The cause
t death was consumption with com
plications. Although declining In
health for many years, ho kept on his
foet practically till the last few days.
Mr. Jaeger was a native of Frieden
fcerg, Germany, and C4 years of age in
February last Ho arrived In the Ha
waiian Islands about 35 years ago, and
was with his uncle, tlio lato Judge
Wldemann, In planting operations on
the Island of Kauai. Hemovlng to
Honolulu wlt.i the Judge a long tlma
ago he took an ofilco with him In Ka
ahumamu street, where Mr. Jaeger was
one of tho pioneer lnsurnnco agents of
this city, at his death being the oldest
survivor of that business here.
Twenty-six years ago Mr, Jaeger
married MIS3 Annie Robinson, a daugh
ter of tho lato James Robinson and sis
ter of Mark P. Robinson, tho well
known merchant, capitalist and man of
public affairs. With his wife he leaves
four sons and one daughter Henry,
tho eldest and doing for himself as a
contractor on Maul; James, employcu

Mr. Jaeger was highly accomplished
as an amateur botanist. Every raro
plant or flower he could get track of
abroad he would procure if possible for
his conservatory and gardens. His col
lection of orcnlds, In which Proi.
Koebcle took a great Interest, was the
finest In Honolulu. Mr. Jaeger used
to relate witn pride how he had dis
abused tho mind of a visitor from the
Mainland with regard to fruit culture
, here. Tho visitor had remarked, while
'being entertained at homo by Mr.
'Jaeger, that he had scrn no evidences
whatever to Justlfy.talk ho had heard
of abundance of fruit In Honolulu. For
answer Mr. Jaeger, excusing himself a
minute, sent his sons foraging upon
the grounds and then conducted the
visitor to view the results, which ap
peared within a quarter of an hour In
a prodigious heap of at least a dozen
species of luscious fruit upon tho floor
of another apartment.
Seventeen or eighteen years ago
when Mr. Jaeger was superintendent of
the Government nursery, ho planted
the forest on Mount Tantalus that to
day, after several culllngs and nqt a
few visitations of Are, 1b being recom
mended to another thinning out for
reducing Its density.
Mr. Jaeger was a leading spirit In
the German club, on Its extinction be
coming tho same In tho British club
until Its increased cosmopolitanism,
eight years ago, caused its name to be
changed to the Pacific. As a club man
his natural geniality shono out, and
his hospitality toward occasional and
transient guests was unexceeded.

Gets No Pennon
Washington, March 10. While tho
Senato had tho diplomatic and consular
appropriation bill under consideration
today a lively debato was precipitated
by an nraendment by Hoar of Massa
chusetts, proposing to glvo former
Queen Lllluokalanl of Hawaii $20,000
and an annuity of $10,000. The amend
ment was tabled finally without divi
sion. In explanation of tho amendment
Hoar said tho former Queen was the
proprietor In her own right of much
property that had been lost to her by
her dethronment. He said that she had
been tho subject cf cruel calumnies,
which he was assured had not tho
slightest foundation in fact Ho was
satisfied her life had been qui to shame
less and spotless.
Tillman of South Carolina Insisted
that if any obligation existed at ull it
was one of Hawaii, and not of tho
Piatt of Connecticut did not bellovo
the former Queen had tho slightest
claim on the United States, and while
ho would be willing to join in making
a donation to her, in tho nlrcumstan'
ccs, ho would not agree to legislation
that recognized her right to any such
Galllngcr of New Hampshire de
nounced the proposed appropriation as
Lodgo of Massachusetts whllo admit
ting that tho former Queen had no
claim on tho United States, said tho
proposition raado was simply as an
act of grace.
Thurston of Nebraska suggested the
donation to the former Queen of a
lump sum. He strongly opposed put
ting her on tho pension rolls of tho
Cockrell of Missouri, In .opposition
to tho amendment, declared it was a
dangerous precedent to establish at
this time. "It wo aro to pension all
tho monarchs dethroned from our Isl
ands," said ho, "wo .are likely to have
our hands full. Thero will be tho
Queen of Hawaii, the Queen of tho Su
lus and tho monarchs of many other
places. Headed by the Queen of Ha
waii with $10,000 the list would go
down to $8,000 for somebody else, then
to $7,000, and finally wind up with a
pension of $5,000 for widows of Presi
dents of the United States."
Morgan Will you Includo tho wid
ow of Aguinaldo? (Laughter.)
Cockrell Why, of course; we'll have
to put her In.
In conclusion Cockrell announced
his opposition to the pensioning of any
monarch in any circumstances thus far
Tillman contended that tho amend
ment was without equity. Ho thought
Is thero was any claim at all it should
be paid by the people of Hawaii.
McCumbcr of Maryland also opposed
the amendment, taking tho position
that there was no moral or legal obli
gation to pay tho proposed pension.
Ho did not concede that Lllluokalanl
had been entitled to contlnuo in the
On motion of Carter of Montana the
amendment was laid on tho table. The
bill was then passed.

London Is Happy.
London, March 15. Tho British flat:
files over tbo presidency In Rlocmfon-
teln. In which building Lord Roberts
and his stuff passed last night. Tho
keys were surrendered In duo form to
tho commahdcr-In-chlcf by tho officials.
The Frco fatato and Transvaal burghers
naa withdrawn from .tho neighborhood
and tho British troops received a wcl
ccrao from the Inhabitants. ' These
events, tho result of Lord Roberts' ad
vance on tho town Tuesday, wero mado
public In London soon after 9 o'clock
Inst night. Whllo It was expected, the
nows was received with great.rejolclng
at the clubs andcateTs., In tho res
taurants corks popped Un lively fash-
Ion and toasta were drunk to Lord
Roberts' health wlththe nopo that no
would soon supplement tho taking of
the Free StateCcapltnl by the capturg
or l'rtiorla. Mr. Stcyn, "lato President
of tho Frco State," vo quota Lord, Rob
erts, has retired north to Wlnburg or
Kroonstadt. It Is probablo that tho
army ot 12,000 burghers with eighteen
guns has followed blm.
The general opinion this morning in
tho Continental, as well as tho London
press, Is that tno Freo Staters .havo
practically thrown up tho sponge. It Is
thought likely that a rear guard action
will bo fougnt to Kroonstadt by tho Ir
reconcilable of tho Frco Stato and
Transvaalcrs; that then a retirement
will do mado irom tbo Frco Stato and
Natal upon tho lino ot tho Vaal, where
there Is sure to bo serious fighting.
Lord Roberts Is not likely to lose much
tlmo In providing a provisional gov
ernment to administer tho affairs of
tho Freo State.
General Whlto is considered tho best
man to tako holu of affairs. The commander-in-chief
can now turn his at
tention to tho south ot the Free State,
where Clements, Gatacro and Brabant
have been holding the south bank of
tho Orange river, awaiting an order to
push back tho Boers. Tho latter are
now in a bad position between them
and Roberts' army. No movement of
any Importanco was reported in that
section yesterday, out 11 concerted nd
vance will probably oegln immediately.
The Dutch rebellion in tho northwest
of Capo Colony appears to bo collaps

serious quarrel between tho rebels and
