Eighty News Merchants
Held High Carnival
THEN THE 'BUS RIDE
Wind Dp by Attending the Orpheum
Theatre in Evening-Tin Horns
Announced That They
Owned the Town.
Yesterday was what of all days in the
year Is preeminently the 'Newsboys
Day. Thanksgiving Day Is the one day
of tho year on which the newsbojs nil
take' holiday; that they all had a
royal good time yesterday can bo testi
fied to by tho people who live along
the route the busses took on their way
to the football game. Theso little
street merchants are as bright and
energetic a lot of youngsters as one can
find anywhere. They nil go to school
In the daytime but as soon as they are
free In the afternoon the yard in the
rear of tho Bulletin ofllce Is tilled with
a crowd of from 60 to 80 merry youngs
ters waiting for tho paper to come out.
Here all the seasons for tops, marbles,
etc. are religiously observed and the
boys manage to mix a goodly portion of
play with their work.
The Bulletin's Thanksgiving Day n
tertalnment. however, is looked for
ward to with eagerness many months
In advance by all the bojs and as early,
as July and August they begin to in
quire about Thankslgtvlng Day. Early
yesterday rooming they began to gath
er and although they had been In
structed to come at 12 o'clock, the ynid
was filled as early as nine with a
crowd of eager boys. Provision had
been made for about 75, which Is tho
regular number of Bulletin sellers, but
it was soon seen that there were many
more than that on hand. The regular
sellers of tho Bulletin were soon sep
arated from tho rest and about twenty
boys who were left were sent to the
Star ofllce where another lot of boys
were gathered. The boys were then
marched up Fort street to the Or
pheum cafe where eighty-two sat
down to a sumptuous spread which had
been prepared by genial Chef Boyd.
After they had had their 1111 of tur
key, mince pie. Ico cream and soda
water galore, they were given tickets
for tho show in the evening. Then they
piled Into the waiting busses to be driv
en In triumph through the streets o'
the town, all the while venting their
enthusiasm in cheering and yelling and
tooting on tho tin horns with wli'iu
they had all been provided. After
driving around for an hour or two the
football game was next on the program
which, needless to say, was enjoyed
to tho limit. After the game the bojs
wcro driven down town, a tired and
happy lot to go home for supper (If
they had room for any) and to rest up
for tho theater In tho evening which
formed a most fitting end to the long
day of pleasure.

Sir Arthur Sullivan
Dies Very Suddenly
London, Nov. 22. Sir Arthur Sulli
van, the musical composer. Is dead.
Ills death was very sudden. vAt 9
o'clock this morning, while ho was
laughing and talking, fell down and
died within a few minutes of heart
failure. He had been ailing for some
time, but It was not believed his heal t
was affected. Recently ho had been in
better health than for some weeks
Ixindon, Nov. 22. Later It became
known that Sir Arthur Sullivan had
been ailing Blnce he returned from
Switzerland In the middle of Septem
ber. Ho caught a chill thero and hid
chest nnd lungs becamo affected. Ho
took to his bed a fortnight ago, but
was convalescing and sitting up In bed
Just before he expired. Tho afternoon

waiters had left tho ship at San Fran

qulto up to their Job tho stato of affairs
was not tho most comfortable. Still

kept In tolerably good cheer.
Mr, Ilylte wus nsked If the rumor cur
rent in his absence wero true, that

Committee from Inde
pendents Called On
TWO SEALED PACKAGES
OPENED BEFORE JUDGE
Missing Returns Found-Delegate Elect
Should Have His Papers This
tical Doings. fJ
In order to ascertain definitely the
exact status respecting the Issuance of
credentials to Robert W. Wilcox ns
the duly elected delegate to Congress,
Messrs. James K. Kaulla and John
Emmcluth, constituting a commltuo
from tho Independent Home Rule par
ty, cnlle'd on Secretary Cooper at tho
Capitol this forenoon. J. K. Preuder
gast was the other member of tli
committee but he was unable to attend
on account of work.
The committee nsked Secretary
Cooper how long It would bo before the
requisite credentials could be expect'1!
Mr. Cooper nusewcrcd that, as yet, tho
Bccond nnd fourth prclncts of the Sec
ond Representative, District (Hawaii)
had not yet sent In their official returns
although the Inspectors of election who
had had charge of theso precincts, had
been written to nbout the matter In the
neighborhood of a fortnight ago.
Mr. Cooper said he thought he had
waited long enough. With this, he ex
cused himself, took the two seated
packages and went over to the Judi
ciary building. These packages wero
Opened beforo Judge Perry nnd ther?,
snugly tucked away among the other
papers, were tho official returns. These
were removed nnd the package again
sealed up. Mr. Cooper was sure that
these returns were In the scaled pack
age as Is In the cases of the other two
precincts whose returns wero only ob
tained a few days since.
Mr. Cooper returned to the Capitol
and there acquainted the committee
from the Home Rule party with the re
sult of his action. Seen by n Bulletin
reporter this morning, Mr. Cooper had
tho following to say:
"Thero Is now nothing to hinder Mr.
Wilcox's papers being Issued. They
should be In his hands somo time this
afternoon. I will make my last foot
ings as soon as possible and turn over
the results to tho government. This
having been dune, Mr. Wilcox should
get his papers immediately."
Thero has been a great ileal of talk
lately about the disposition on tho
part of same of the leaders of the Home
Rule party to become angry at tho de
lay In tho Issuance of credentials to
Robert W. Wilcox ns delegate to Was.1
Ingtou. Mr. Wilcox himself, the man
who Is most Interested In this matter,
said to a Bulletin reporter this morn
ing: "I nm not at all put out about this
matter and blame no ono but tho In
spectors from those four districts who
evidently did not rend tho law In tho
matter of sending In tho election re
turns. Secretary Cooper is In no way
to blame. He has done all In his power
to secure the missing official returns.
"Of course, I have set my mind on
leaving In the Illo de Janeiro and would
like to do bo but If It is Impossible for
me to get my papers yet, I must be can-
Mrs. Wilcox will not accompany lie
husband to Washington. Tills being
the season of tho year when tho voiy
coldest weather Is setting In, slio Is
afraid to tuko her children along to"
fear of complications 'mt might tuko
place as a result of the sudden chango
In cllmato that would bo experience.
The Independent leaders are keeping
a quiet tongue in their heads respect
ing the recent Independent action of
Republicans along the lino of a charter
for thc'clty of Honolulu to bo presented
to the Legislature for consideration.
They aro not at all pleased over whit
has transpired but they will not entor
into any discussion on tho .matter. One
of the number a native said to a
Bulletin reporter this morning:
"I believe the Republican party Is
tho one that not long since, cried out
that we were antl-haole and that wo
wcro drawing strict lines. Wo propo.ic
framing a charter and, in order to hnvo
unanimity behind tho proposition, In
vito both the Republican and Demo
cratic parties to Join us. Now then, tho
Republicans turn right around and
draw a lino, proposing to tako Indepen
dent nctlnn. This sort of work will
hardly glvo them the support of our
men In tho Legislature. If they want
to take Independent action, we can clri
tho samo but we thought wo wo o

DIFFICULTY FOUND IN
Sugar Furnishes Stumbling Block
Possibility of Amicable Trade
Relations Being Suddenly
Washington. Nov. 21. Negotiations
nro In progress between the State De
partment and the Russian Government,
ns represented respectively by Special
Commissioner Kasson and Embassador
Casslnl, looking to tho making of a
reciprocity treaty under the terms of
the DIngley tariff act. As both coun
tries ore large producers of raw ma
terial and as Russia Is making enor
mous strides In the development of
manufactures of motals and textiles, It
Is with great difficulty that the pleni
potentiaries can And articles, to form
the basis for tariff reductions for such
A vexatious commodity, for Instance,
is sugar, which Is produced in .rapidly
Increasing quantities and is now mar
keted In the United States. At ono
phase In its production and exportation
this suitnr receives substantial aid from
cither tho local or general Russian
Government. Under a strict construc
tion of the countervailing duty section v
of tho DIngley rfst,.fuch bounty-aided T
sugar is liable to a discriminatory duty;
but the United States Government,
upon tho urgent representations of the
Russian Govcrnmadt, has Indefinitely
suspended tho exaction of such duties.
For Its part tho Russian Government
has refrained from Imposing maximum
(and In many cases prohibitory) dutifs
upon United States exports to'Russla.
Now It Is lntltnatcd that tho situa
tion Is rather precarious; that there la
danger at any moment of n Judicial de
cision or somo cxcrutlvo action on ono
side or the other that may destroy tho
amlcnble understanding. This appeals
from the news received on the Pacific
Coast that Russia Is contemplating an
8 per cent Increase In the duties on
American dour, while the sugar, ar
rangement Is by no means permanent.

There was a gay and festive scene on
tho lawn of the North Pacific Mission
ary Institute, on Punchbowl street yes
terday afternoon. It was at this place
that tho children of the Japanese Sun
day schools of the city gathered for a
fitting celebration of their Thanksgiv

decorated In Japantso fashion. Japan

places. All kinds of games wero ar
ranged for tho occasion.
The celebration of the dny began in
