The formation of a Federal Filipino
party has a highly satisfactory sound,
but those who expect marked imme
diate results are likely to be disap
pointed. As a loyal leaven whoso In
fluence may eventually extend to tin
rebels It Is a good beginning and may
thus be a factor In bringing nbout
lasting peace under American rule. Tho
spirit of revolutionary fanaticism Is o
thoroughly Instilled In the Klllplno
character that the reformation must be
decidedly slow. Even the rebellion I
South was a much more hopeful prop
otltlon because of the degree of horne
sense possessed by the leaders of th
Confederacy as well as tho Intelligent
rank and file.

If you wish that this is the first arrival
of colored laborers In a body from

experiment, but 1 feel satisfied that the
laborers will be perfectly contented
with their new surroundings. My ef
forts to bring a much larger crowd
were considerably hampered owing to
reports that had been circulated to the
effect that negro laborers wero not
wanted In tbo Islands. The lender or

for four years was United States gauger

the death of W. Horace Wright, met In
the office of the Deputy Sheriff yester
day afternoon and, after hearing the
testimony of several witnesses, handed

SUCCUMBS AFTER OPERATION
AT THE QUEEN'S HOSPITAL
Dies in Prime of Life and Leaves a
Wife and Family-Successful
David Center, who was brought from
Maul on Saturday and placed in tho
Queen's hospital, died at 4 p. m. yes
terday. An operation for abscess of
liver attempted by Dr. C. B. Wood, as
sisted by Dr. Herbert, on Monday had
tn be abandoned on account of tho pa
tient's weakness. Mrs. Center was
with her husband nt the end.
Mr. Center was but forty-four years
of age and leaves a wife and six chil
dren, of whom three aro attending
school at the Coast. He was a native
of Scotland nnd has been a sugar plan
ter In these Islands for between fifteen
nnd twenty years. When his brother
Hugh wns manager of Spreckclsvlll
plantation, David occupied i Btmllar
position on liana plantation. Whci
the Spreckels "boys" succeeded their
father In the control of the Hawaiian
Commercial & Sugar Co., David Center
had for somo time been the successor
of his brother on that corporation's big
plantation. After leaving that position
he became manager of Walanae plan
tation on till1 Island, remnlnlng thcro
until selected nr mnnagei by the Am
erican Sugar Co. for Its projected great
plantation on Molokal, which unfor
tunately met failure from tho fact that
wntei rould nut be obtained for It
Then Mr. Centet was ottered tho posl
Hon of, assistant manager at expand
ing Sirckelsvlttc. with the promlio
of the chief management after eighteen
months. Death liar intervened, how
ever, to stop n very successful career,
Tho lamented planter leaves friends
In nil his Intimate acquaintances. Al
though somcwhnt retiring In dlsposl
tlon, nt close approach he evinced a
genial nature. Second to none In hU
vocation for respect earned by capacity.
Mr. Center will be long and sincerely
regretted by the sugar planting frater
nity. Ills funeral will take placo at
3:30 this afternoon from St. Andrew's
Cathedral, Interment to be In th?
Walker plot. Nuuanu cemetery.
The bill selected tor tonight and tho
two ensuing evenings will be the last
vaudeville performances given In th's
city for some time to come. The man
ngement havo failed to receive suffi
cient patronage to warrant them In
continuing such an expensive class if
amusement. The weekly pay roll of
the Orpheum has been between eleven
and twelve hundred dollars weekly,
most of which has been spent in the
city nnd tho receipts have not shown
the marginal profits that must ke?p
the Investment going. The Orpheuui
will closo Its doors as n vaudeville
huuse on Saturday nnd the manage
ment has made every effort to make It's
last program n notable one. The open
ing farce "Euchercd" Is Conlon nnd
Ryder's best whllo the various artists
have promised to be their very funni
est nnd cleverest. There is some ta'k
of a series of concerts being given In
the near future but as far as vaudeville
and the Orpheum Theatrical Syndicate
is concerned, the vaudeville "business is
pau. There should be good crowds to
witness the last performances as It
will probably bo many a day before the
flutter of skirts or the feats of gym
nasts and comedians wilt be seen In

Filipino Wants to
be Free American
New York, Dec. 26. Rafael del
Pan Fontela, a rofugeo from the Phil
ippine Islands and first president of
tho Madrln Junta, has Just arrived in
New York from Canada.
"I came here to bo free," he ex
plalneu. "It was Impossible for me to
bo other than a slave to America
when I lived with my wife nnd fUn
children In Manila, so I havo come
w.ierp I won't havo to bo subservient.
Americans are not subservient to Am
ericans and while I don't approve nf
tho American methods employed In
tho Philippines, I'd rather ,bo a free
American than an .enslaved Filipino."
Senor Fontela was a lawyer nnd
editor In Manila. Vhcn the war be
gan he was Agulnaldo'a chief advlsrr.
Driven out of tho Philippines by thu
.mcrlcan soldiers, ho fled with bin
wife nnd five small children to Mad
rid. There he established the first
Filipino Junta and was made Its presi
dent. With nn Idea that such a Junta
would flourish In Canada ho left Mad
rid and went to Montreal. He has
been there for the pnst several weeks.
"You hear .so much of American In
dependence In Canada," ho continued,
"but I determined to come here and
get some of it" Senor Fontela ex
plained that It was safe for him to re
turn to the Philippines and resume,
his law practice nnd the publication nf
his newspaper wero he "wilting to
sttcnr nllcRlnncc to the stars nnd
"I'm no hypocrite," ho explained,
"nnd can't take such an onth when my
people nro In a struggle which must
end In death or freedom. I will not
return to the Philippines until Inde
pendence has been gained, "Tho Im
pression has got abroad that Agulnnl
do Is (lend. This Is nonsense. He has
n largo following and every man un
der him Is there to do or die. Tho
war hns Just begun unless America
nccedes to tho demands of the Fili
pinos." Regarding the formation of a new
party under which tho United States
officials will rally the Filipinos to tho
colonial policy, Senor Fontela snld:
"This scheme Is doomed to falliiu.
The leaders, Uuencnmlno and Pater
no, nre leaders without a party."
1 Fllllll) PEACE
Manila, Dec. 24. The Federal paiiy
has decided upon a new organization,
nnd today published in the Spanish nml
Filipino evening papers an address to
the Filipinos. "The number of Fili
pinos who are convinced that the tlnw
for peace has come Increases dally,"
says the address. "The object of the
Federal party Is the reunion of all rill
plnos who truly wish for peace, .mil
who nre disposed to work for It."
It nppcals to those who will attempt
to attain for the Philippines the great
est number of liberties under the appli
cation of tho American Constitution.
"We call ourselves the Federal party
because, under American sovereignty.
the righteous aspirations or tbo Philip
pines will be to form a part of the Am
erican Federation of States of thu
The executive committee hns cabled
President McKlnley anonunclng that
tho organization has been perfected
and tendering an expression of good
will. Copies of the nddress have been
sent Into the provinces.

claring for American recognition of
the legality of somo nets done by the
authorities of the insurgent govern
ment Is In conformity with precedents
established during the reconstruction

BRITAIN8 GREEN CHRISTMAS.
New York, Dec. 2C. A dispatch
to tho Tribune from London sas:
England had one of the greenest
Chrlstmascs on record, for the weath
er has been so mild that primrose and
cornflowers are abloom as far north
as Liverpool and Yorkshire, whllo
Devonshire revels In a sub-troplral
climate nnd tho Isle of Wight is a
garden of roses In mid-winter. Never
hnve flowers been more abundant in
the London market at ChriBtmas time
nor nas mistletoe over been cheaper.
As Bnglanu Is supplied with Christ
mas toys from Germany, so also It
receives immense shipments of mistle
toe from Brltanny and NormWly, and
there Is a French touch In the holi
day rejoicing. Tho London sky lias
been heavily clouded and the air fill
ed with mist, while the weather has
been unseasonably warm, The deans
of St. Paul's and Westminster preach
ed at tho midday service, and Dr.
Parker, unwearied by blB week's ex
perience In dally Journalism, filled tho
pulp - at the City Temple. Handl
and Gounod, as usual, were tbo faor
Ho composers In tho Christmas music
at tho churches, wun Stanford Hop
kins and Sullivan as alternated. There
wero fewer Chilstmas concerts than
are ordinarily known, but there wero
more football matches for holldav
sport. There was a marked revlv.il
of fox hunting In tho country districts.
