Apropos of the McKcnzle pardon by
the President, the Thurstonlan con
spirators will take notice that tho
President Issues no pardons to be de
livered with the mittimus .
The President of the United States
recognizes no higher authority In the
administration of American govern
ment than tho will of the people. Wo
commend the President's example to
the executive officials of Hawaii.
President McKlnlcy told Hepretcnta
tlve Hockley that Secretary Cooper had
no right on the Moor of the House of
Representatives. The Thurstonlan ag
gregation together with the uocrnor
and Acting Governor had better call a
meeting of the Ilnr Association nnd ask
for the removal of Mckinley.
The popular snupor' the Bar As
soclatlon has brought to Judge Hum,
phrcys makes the Thurstonlan con
spirators wonder why they should have
been so foolish as to run against the
buzz saw of public opinion. Robinson
Crusoe In his most dubious moments
was never more lonesome than the five
law tlrms constituting the thirty-seven
members of the liar Association who
voted for the "not vindictive" icaolu
tlons against Humphreys.
Tho Legislature will gain nothing In
public esteem at home or abroad by
wiping out the military. The Nntlou
ill Uuard has become n national insti
tution and Is so regarded In ccry Stato
and Territory. The old plan of pro
viding public money with which offi
cers may buy uniforms is not to on
thought of. A sufficient appropriation
ought to be made, however, to maintain
the organization and Ipsplte an inter
est nmong the citizens In military prac
tice. The fact that the Republic tiuan.
dercd money on the military furnishes
no argument for the Territory to do
away with the Territorial militia. Tho
province of the Legislature Is to bring
the appropriation for the militia to thu
business basis that obtains In ecry
other subdivision of the Union.
THUS WOULD COMMITTEE
DEAL WITH THE MILITARY
Long Story of Extravagance Capt.
flawes and Bis $24 Suit
The House Committee on Military
submitted a report this morning re
commending that the appropriations
for this department be allowed to lapse.
The Governor's estimate calls for
U5.6S0 for the biennial period.
The committee states tho proposi
tion before them to be granting the
amount called for In the e'stlmnte, re
duce the appropriation or allow the ap
propriation for military to lapse, in
order to reach a conclusion the com
mittee called In the Auditor General
for a statement of expenditures which
Is given with tho report.
"Wo feel In a measure n reluctance to
going Into tho dctnlls of the period
covered by Exhibit 1, Inasmuch as It
covers that period with which Hawaii
was submerged In the "Volcanic Erup
Hon" of political contentions for .'it
premacy: the period when tho rights
of the person were repressed nnd sub
verted, which made two-thirds of tho
members of this Legislature practical
ly parole prisoners, while forced to pay
the taxes that tho authorities creating
these conditions demanded of them,
and which conditions wero brought
nbout by the very service under con
sideration. Wo do not wish to further
crltlclso the expenditures during said
period than to say that the grand total
for the eight years Is tho enormous sum
of (948,152.10; and together with the
expenditures to May 1.1th of this year
reached almost a round million. It Is
to tho expenditures during tho present
year we dcslro more especially to call
the attention of this House nnd for this
purpose wo will consider exhibit No.

already reported by the Committee on
Public Expenditures, This pay roll
shows payments to the various mem
hers of tho mllitnry Including gunrds
at the Capitol building, two clerks nnd
nn armorer, with a servant at the bun
galow. Tho total expenditures under
this head are, to May 13th. inclusive.

LONG TERM IN JAIL.
Vancouver, 11. C, May 21. Charles
M. Allan, son of a former Hawaiian
Minister of Queen Ltlluokulanl's Cabl
net, was released from prison yester
day after an Incarceration of ten
month without u trial. Ho wns con
fined at Westminster Jail without hard
lubor, nnd, according to Canadian law,
his detention was quite lawful, but
without precedent. Ho was first arrest
ed hero last July on n charge of obtain
ing money under false pretenses. He
admitted tho fact that he had given
hecks which wero worthless, but ho
expected to have plenty of money by
the first steamer from Honolulu to meet
Instead of that, however, no funds
came, his friends tefused to put up tho
$300 nnd more necessary to fact hlui
fien und so he stayed in Jul). Tho
ci own ptobecutor had tho case stood
over from time to tlmo in order to ob
tain a necessary witness from tho
States, but tills witness never turned
tip. Yesterday Allan's lawyer applied
under hnbeas corpus proceedings for
his release, showing that no effort was
being made to find the missing witness,

The speedy Improvement In Mrs.
McKlnley's health enabled tlie Presi

the latter part of his stay In San Fran

Saturday, May 25th.
The President reviewed the school
children of San Kianclsco, visited Oak
land nndtcvlewcd the school children
theic. was the guest of the Union
League, Knight Templars, Native Sons,
League, of the Cross, Epwortb League,
Grand Army veterans, and visited the
Presidio hospitals and made a speech
to tho returning volunteers. At all the
various functions the President made
speeches of considerable length and
was greeted vociferously by the people.
During the trip through Oakland In
cidents occurred showing tho Presi
dent's love and regard for the little
citizens ns well as their elders.
Coming down Jackson street one lit
tle girl, scarcely moro than 8 years of
age, bolted under the horse of Police
man Turner. The little one was dress
ed all In whlto and she made a run
under the horse's head before any ono
could stop her. She Jumped upon the
steps of the Presidential carriage and
there she hung, with her curly head
Just peering above the carriage door,
with her tiny hand outstretched. Tho
President started In fear that the little
girl would fall. He caught her and
held her close to the sldo of the car
riage and then signaled the driver to
stop. The entlro procession was
brought to a halt and as the President
lifted the llttlo tot In white down ho
kissed her. Then tho little white
vision darted under the heads of the
policemen's horses and disappeared In
the crowd, happy and excited.
At Broadway and Thirteenth street
n similar incident happened. A little
girl, without regard to danger, bolted
through the crowd and up to the Presi
dential carriage and threw a tiny bou
quet at tho Chief Magistrate. McKlnley
lifted his hat to the little girl, while the
police reined up their horses to pre
vent her from being trodden under foot.
But It was at the wharf upon his de
parture that the most affecting Incl
dent of the day occurred. There was
nn Immense ciowd upon the gangplank;
up which the President had Just passed.
The Golden Gate was almost ready to
pull out when from far down In ths
crowd came the wall of a small boy,

of n short four nnd a half months

It Is stated the military requirements
of the Territory can be met by the High
Sheriff and police. In view of the ex
travagance at a period when the con

"that It would be wisdom on the part
of the Legislature of this Territory to

spent during 1900, $93,975.99. Idaho

Tho committee believes the Territory
ran better afford money for streets nnd
roads than military extravagance.
"Tho peaco of tho country for tho
two years coming can be better taken
