Invading Army 5000.
London, January 2. Tho Capo Town
correspondent of tho Dally Mall, in a
dispatch which dwells upon the grav.
ity of tho position In Coup Colony,
Tho Boer Invaders now number Bj
000. Tho western Invasion gives the
most concern. It has split Into two .!
visions, which are marching like the
prongs of a fork, one by way of 8uth
crland toward Malmesbury and tho
other toward Beaufort West.
The enemy aro now ranging over Im
mense tracts of territory, necessitat
ing the employment of an army corns
to deal with them. Lord Kitchener
has pourned troops Into tho disturbed
nrons, but tho fugitive tactlrs of the
Boers have to a Inige extent neutral
Izeil his precautions.
It was felt that the only means of
excluding tho Invaders from tho rich
districts In the western part of the
colony was to call out the farmcis.
Today's telegrams promise a splendid
response from tho eastern portion,
but the western is doubtful, not 30 per
cent of the population being regarded
as loyal. Hence the Boer concentra
tion in thnt direction.
It was rumored this morning that
W. II, rain, manager of the Itawnlla.i
Tramways Co., had gone to London i
make a deal for amalgamation of the
street rar systems of Honolulu. The
Honolulu Hapld Transit Co. would take
over the plant of the Tramways pcoply,
and the stockholder of the latter ac
cept in payment Transit bonds. Ac
coidlng to the rumor, the Tramway
contingent at this end of the line fa
vored tho proposition. Only the l-ondo'i
directorate qf the company, however,
could take action. The local director
ate is merely advisory.
Hon. Paul Neumann, attorney for the
Hawaiian Tramways Co.. was apprised
of the rumor and asked regarding its
value. Ho promptly answered:
"There Is nothing In It.' Tho Rapid
Transit Co. made nn offer to buy tho
franchise nnd equipment of tho Tram
ways Co.. giving In return mortgago
bonds to the amount of fifty per cent
of the capital stock of our company.
This offer was curtly refused.
"No. There Is nothing whatever of
negotiations pending between the tw i
companies. I do not remember the
amount of the Tramways capital. The
Transit company had already issued
1500.000 of bonds. Their pioposnl we

purchase of the Tramways property,

a surprise up his sleeve, In the shape
of authority to Instill forthwith clectii

Last Meeting of Home
Rule Convention This
WAS VtRY SHORT ONE
Summary of Work Done at That
Time and This Forenoon Kanui
Wanted to Have More
There was but a very short session ot
the convention of the Independent
Home Kule party yesterday afternoon.
After tho visit to tho Queen, tho dele
gates went to Foster hall but the ses
sion did not begin until after 2 o'clock.
The matter of tho formation of a
united Home Rule party nil over hc
Islands was brought up for considera
tion. This seemed to meet the favor
ot all present and It was sought to ap
point a committee to nttend to the mnt
ter at once. On motion of S. K. Mnhoe,
It was moved that this be, left to the
Tho next question brought up was
the sending forth of letters of greet
ing from tho party to tho various Im
portant personages on the Mainland.
Tills course was decided on by unani
mous vote and tho following committee
was appointed to nttend to the matter:
I). Kalauokalanl. Jas. K. Knulla and
J. K. Nnkookoo. This committee will
draft the letters nnd send them forward
at the earliest opportunity to such
men as President McKlnlcy. Delegate
Robert W. Wilcox and the various
Senators and Congressmen nt Washing
ton. The resolution regarding the mem
bership of tho executive committee and
the officers of that body, adopted dur
ing the morning session, was the sub
ject of much debate which ended In
adjournment until this morning nt 9
o'clock. Dnvld Kuplhea sought to have
It leconsldered but the men on the
other side kept the nrgument against
such nctlon so warm that tho motion
was forgotten about for a while. Wlu-n
It wns again broached. Mahoo moved
for adjournment. Other spenkcis
Jumped to the floor to protest but
Chairman Kaulia announced that the
motlon to ndjourn was not dcbnteablo.
Some of the delegates to tho conven
tion of the Homo Rule party met in
Foster hall nt 9 o'clock this morning,
the hour set for the moinlng session,
but there wcic not enough present to
make up a quoium. For this reason. It
was thought best to postpone the meet
ing for an hour. Between that time
nnd 10 o'clock, tho delegates began to
arrive nnd, nt tho latter hour, the meet
was called to order by President Ka
lauokalanl. The first business of the morning wn,

Introduced by Mr. Mnhoe to the effect
that tho officers of tho executive com
mittee bo considered tho present offi
cers. The resolution was amended so
that now, the executive committee has
the power to elect other offlrers If It
sees fit. The resolution wus further
amended so that the officers of tho
party, elected at the meeting of dele
gates yesterday and tho day before,
becomo members of tho executive com
mittee. Tho delegates nlso changed tho
personnel of the excutlvo commute to
a slight extent. The name of D. Ka

ROOT MAY COME TO HAWAII
New York, Jan. 2, A special to the World fiom Washington says:
President McKlnley 1s seriously considering the proposition of
sending Secretary of War Root to tho Philippines to mnko n tour of
examination similar to the ono recently mado In Cuba. This has not
been definitely decided on, but It li known that the matter has been
under discussion nnd that next May, when the President Intends to
visit the Pacific Coast, has been fixed upon ns n good time for Root to
start. Ho could accompany the Presidential party to San Francisco
nnd goon from there, stopping at Hnwall for a look around.

runency thero would bo to ndinit that tho Constitution does follow
the ling, and that Is further tlmn tho Admlnlstrntl6n now deslies to
party thtoiigh the columns of the Loc.t
Knlalaiua. Jas. K. Kaulia made n
strong speech against any such nctlon.
He began with the proposition tint the
Home Rule party was the party of the
people and that any action of the kln.l
would look like a monopoly, Why r.nt
give every native paper a show Instead
of confining publications to tho p.ifvr
spoken of in tho resolution. Su.'n ac
tion would call down ridicule upon
tho heads of the delegates. The rtsolu
tlon was voted against by nearly every
delegate In the house.
This done, Knnul was given the floor
for the reading of three new sections
he had prepared for addition to tho
constitution adopted at the mectlni
of Tuesday. These nil tended towarl
placing additional power In the hands
of tho executive committee but the
ono that gave the most trouble In the
house wns the second, Tho first T.as
