Washington, Oct, 4. Following Is tho reply of the United States Govern
ment to the German nolo relative to the punishment of Chinese offenders:
The Secretary of Btato to the Imperial German charge, Washington In
response to the Inquiries made of the Secretary of Stato, October 1, 1900,
by the Imperial Ocrman charge d'afftlrc touching the Chinese Imperial
edict In regard to the punishment of Prince Tuan and other big Chinese offi
clali. 111.1 j .
The Chinese Minister communicated to the Secretary of State, on the 1st
Inst,, a telegram received by him frorn Director General Shcng, conveying the
purport of an Imperial edict, dated September 25, 1900, by which tho degra
dation and punishment of Prince Tuan and other high Chinese officials, Is de
creed. Tho Government of the United States Is disposed to regard this measure
as a proof of tho desire of the Imperial Chinese Government to satisfy the
reasonable demands of the foreign porcrs for the Injury and outrage whl:it
their legations and their nations havo suffered at the hands of evil-disposed
persons In China; although It has beci thought well, In view of tho vague
ness of the edict In regard to the punishment which some of the Inculpated per
sons are receiving to signify to the Chinese Minister the President's vfJW
that It would be most regrettable If Prlnco Tuan, who nppears'from tin
concurrent testimony of tho legations in Peking to havo been one of tho fore
most In the proceedings complalne I of, should escape such full jneasure of ex
emplary punishment as the facts wa-rant or If Kan Yl nnd'Chao Shu Chbo
should receive other than their desert. "
With a view of forming a Judgment on these points the United States
Minister In Peking has been Instructed to report whether thc.edlct complete
ly names the persons, deserving chastisement, whether punishments propose)
accord with the gravity of tho crimes committed;, and In what manner tlio
United States and the other Powers art to be,assured that -aattefactory pun
ishment is inflicted. u
It Is hoped that Mr. Conger's rep'.les to these Interrogations, will confirm'
the Government of tho United States in the opinion which It now shares
with the Imperial German Government that the point In question Is an Im
portant initial step In the direction of pcaco and order In China. r
Department of State, Washington, October S, 1900..
(Associated Press Night Report.)
Washington. Oct. 4. Propositions of
a far-reaching character concerning reason to expect Hint n middle ground
China are being presented In rapid j will be reached by confining the Inter,
succession to this Government. The diction of arms to n specified period.
State Department had no sooner dla- possibly to tic fixed by the time re
nosed of one of these propositions to- quired by China within which to p.iy
day by delivering a response "to the
German Government than It was con-
fronted liv an even moro Important '
proposition submitted by the French '
Government, and within half an hour .particularly desires to avoid Is the en
formally seconded by the Russian ' terlng into of a program that leans In
Government. Tho answer to Germany J any manner toward the maintenance
covered the subject of punishing Chi- of a foothold on Chinese soil and If thn
nese subjects and made known that other propositions relative to tho
tho United States had Instructed Mill-' maintenance of a lino of free and safe
istcr Conger along the lines suggested communication between Peking and
by Germany. These Instructions look! the sea and to the legation guards
toward securing the names of tho per- could be modified In tho direction of
suns deserving chastisement, also
whether the punishments are in accord
with tho gravity of the crimes commit
ted and finally, In what manner the
United States and other Powers lire to
be assured that satisfactory punish
ment is inflicted.
Asido from these specific purposes of
tho note It Is regarded as Important
chiefly In establishing tho most satis
factory relation between tho Govern
ments at Washington and Berlin.
Tliu Franco-Russian proposal takes
a much broader scope and submits a
program under which the negotiations
for a completo settlement can be car
ried forward. Tho, French charge, M.
Tblebaut, handed tho proposition to
Secretary Hay shortly after noon to
day and held a brief conference con
cerning it. Half an hour later, M, do
Wallant the Russian charge, arrived
at the State Department and handed to
Mr. Hay a cable expressing Russian ap
proval of tho propositions Just sub
mitted by France. Mr. Hay gave no
formal answer to tho two communica
tions as they will go first to tho Presi
dent at Canton.
The Franco-Russian proposition 1)
under four heads, tiamely, first, punish
ment of the guilty parties; second, In
terdlctlon of tho shipment of arms Into
China; third, payment of indemnity
to tho Powers and fourth, sufficient
guarantees for tho futuro.
In udditlon a suggestion Is made for
the establishment of a permanent ie-1
gallon guards at Peking for tho razing
ot the Taku forts and for the mainten
ance of a line of communication be
tween Peking and tho sea.
The Impression hero, In advance of
action on these propositions by our
Government, Is that they contain noth
ing essentially unfitting them to be
subjects of consideration In a flnul
settlement. Tho difficulty which Is
likely to arise lies in the placing of
proper limitations upon tho scope, ot
each head. This Is particularly true
of tho subject ot guarantees and per
haps tha't 'of Indemnity. Still, as al
ready suggested, each is undoubtedly
a most proper subject for discussion,
for when tho final negotiations are
reached and, therefore, M. Delcassa'i
broadest propositions, whllo likely to
consume some t lino in reducing them to
ultimato and binding form may bn
said to huvo a fair reception nwultin
As to th olnterdictlon of nrms, tho
Stnto Department already has Intl
mated that there may bo n question as
to Its wisdom and tlicro is reason to
believe also that Germany will not

the Indemnity. The, chief objection to
the proposition Is In Us being pernn
nent In its present form.
When the United States Government
temporary expedients they will be
more likely to receive the support of
our Government. It Is apparent from
tho complexity of tho latest Franco
Russian proposal that the' phase of, ne
gotiations thus Initiated will tako Rome
time to dispose ot.

This Is the ticket the Independents
decided 'on at their convention In tlid
drill shed yesterday afternoon.
A big crowd of natives, both men
arid women, were present nt the mass
meeting in the evening to listen to the
bombastic flow of language on the part 1
6f Wilcox In particular. From start to I
finish, (hero was not a single argument 1
produced In favor of affiliation with
the Home Rujo party. The natives weroi
told that they should stand firm n:i
account of their aloha for the country i
nnd the haoles were given n "cussing I
out" that was really vehement. Such I
epithets as "cockroaches" and "snnkes"
ere applied to them but the speakers
failed to produie anything convincing.

Sir; After nature consideration, I
have decided to wlthdrnw from polltlci
for tho present and to apply myself
strictly to business.
F. J. TESTA.
Several ot tho most prominent Chi
nese were talked to yesterday about !i.o
voting strength of their nationality in
the Islands nnd they nil agreed that
tho number would bo in the neighbor
hood of a hundred. Without tht least
hesitancy, they stated that Hon. Sam
uel Parker was their cholco as dele
gate to Congress, he being the only
man who could do Hawaii any good
work In Washington. Tho Chinese, they
further stated, were with the exception
of a few, believers In tho principles of
Republicans nnd would vote according
to that belief.
The Socialist 1-abor party will hold
a meeting In Assembly Hall at 7:30
o'clock this evening for tho purpose of
telling tho natives what it Is they In
tend to do.
Republicans will hold a big meeting
at Kwallko'g place on tho Pawaa roul
this evening. There will undoubtedly
be a big crowd in attendance.
The headquarters of the Toui.g
Men's Republican Club In tho Irwin
block, on Nuuanu street, will be op in
every evening from 7 to 9 for the pur
pose of giving instruction In balloting.
All young men in the city are welcome,
regardless of party affiliations.
Tho Island of Nllhau has Just thirty'
nine ellglblo voters. When tho steamer
V. U. Hall took tho Hoard ot Registra
tion from Kauai to that Island, only
twenty-four could bo secured, Tho
others wero out on a fishing trip.

these being peculiar. If the officer

No doubt there, was illicit distilling
done on the big Island, pcradventure
nlso moro or less smuggling, and Its
ports might bo regarded as an easier
proposition for breaches of immigra
tion laws. Yet there were not enough
cases of all kinds likely to come with
lntlio grasp of a deputy marshal to
make his fees amount to a decent liv

CHINAMAN BADLY HURT.
A Chinaman, aged about 35 year?,
was very nearly killed by the rascality
of some native boys In the neighbor
hood of the brick works, Nuuanu val.
ley, this forenoon.
Th.e fellow was riding i mule ani
was on his way from the other sldo ot
tho Island with a number of mules lad
en with fish. As ho reached the spot
mentioned, some native boys ran up
and began to plagtio the fellow. One ot
the number had a whip and this ho
used on tho Chinaman's mule.
The animal began to buck and threw
the Chinaman over his head. The poor
fellow was thrown upon the rocks nt
the side of the road and he wns so
badly cut up that ho had to be taken to
the Queen's Hospital by tho patrol wa
gon. Tho Chinaman wns frightfully cut
up about the face nnd one hand was
fearfully mangled. A toe on the light
loot wan broken.
One of tho native hoys has been ar
rested. Other arrests will probably
follow this afternoon.
