veiling to give out any details of hU
ncummcndatlon to the Federal Gov

he would bo glad to have the lexUoJ
his recommendation published here,
buujlmt he had lent tho sole. copy re
til'iice to a certain foreign visiting
The recommendation was, however,
,.'n hilef one, the Governor said, lie had
isuggcstod In cfTcct a general Incorpor
ation act, under which dlffeAmt com
nuultles in position to take jW vantage
of It could become Incorporated.
In answer to a question lie thought
such n general law ought to be adapta
ble even to the capital city of Hono
lulu. Tho act would practically be .1
constitution, or basic law, for munici
pal governments throughout tho Ter-rttniy.
Governor Dole Is in favor of having
the question of Incorporation submit
led to tho people of each proposed
jurisdiction, as to whether or not they
desired to have such local government.
In a brief general conversation with a
Hulk tin representative, tho Governor
eUnced a realization, the difficulties

Spooner May Be
Washington, Nov. 17. It Is re
ported today that Senator Spooner will
succeed Griggs at attorney gcnoral. it
Is said to bo a question of whether no
will accept. Tho senator, who was
hero yesterday, went to Now York
last evening. Tho president has not
considered In this connection any but
men eminent in their profession. When
It became known to him that Griggs
would not remain In tho cabinet tho
names of such men as Clioatc, Hoot
and Spooner occurred to him. Ho
wants In the place the most eminent
lawyer whom he can secure. It Is un
derstood that ftoot would prefer to re
main at tho head of tho war depart
ment rather than shift to tho offlco
of attorney general. It Is considered
of especial valuo to this govornment to
retain such a man as Choate at tho
court of St. James at this time.
Mr. Spooner will retire from tho
senate on the 4th of March, 1903, hav
ing announced his determination not
to bo a candidate for re-election on ac
count of his desire to retlro from act
ive political life. It Is believed, how
ever, that ho may bo Induced to yield
his desire to retlro to private Ilfo and
accept a cabinet place. Ho Is a law
yer of high standing, a man nf marked
ability and onn of tho president's clos
est friends and most highly regarded
advisers In matters, of legislation.

Shortly after this, u Ilulletln repor

fused to bo Interviewed, not even wish

Dr. Emerson made nn examination of
the man and ascertained that he was
10 jcars of age nnd n nntlvo of New
Orleans. There was an absorption of
several bones of the fingers of each
hand nnd a brown patch was discover
ed on the left arm. The bones of the
tees of each foot were absorbed and

Emerson stated that he believed the
symptoms wero suspicious of leprosy.
When the story of the arrival of the
leper was noised about tho street,
the opinion was quite generally ex
pressed that Pratt had come here as a
"leeler." It all went well, other lepers
might be sent., Tho belief was aMo
expressed In some quarters that Pratt
was from no farther a place away than
the pest house In San Francisco. At
all cents, this Is the first case since
annexation of a leper attempting to
land here. Previous to this date, at

been returned to the Mainland,
