SENSATION SPRUNG IN
THE DANISH PURCHASE
Investigating Committee Is Appointed
By Speaker of the House -Shady
Deals Reported On All
The Republicans held two meetings
lost night. The piinrlpal one was In
Thomas Square ond there was anoth
er In the chapel at Kamullllll. On ac
count of the weather, the nttcndauco
was not very large. In the neighbor
hood of fifty people listened to tho
rousing speeches of Messrs. A. 0. M.
Itobertson. Lorrln Andrews nnd J. O.
Pratt In Thomas Square nnd a great
leal of enthuslnsin was shown. Had
the weather been good, there certain
ly would have been an Immense crowd
C, A. Graham, Chairman.
C. A. (Iraham presided at the Thom
as Square meeting nnd ho did his
work well. The meeting was schedul
ed for 7:30 o'clock, but It was not un
til S o'clock that the heavy downpour
of rain ceased and the speech-making
Pratt on Republicanism.
J. 0. Pratt, member of the Tiro
Claims Commission, was the first
speaker, lie stated that he had been
a life-long llepubllcan and that lie had
been such from principle, lie had ob
served in his business nnd political r.i
reer that the community which pros
pered aud went ahead was built up
largely thioueh tho medium of the Re
publican party. This was largely duo
to the principle of protection.
Tho speaker referred to the Repub
lican candidate. W. W. Harris, appeal
ed to him ns n candidate well worth
the suffrages of the people. Ho ap
pealed to blm also as a man who has
had opportunities nnd has profited by
ray that the one extra otc was of tho
greatest Importance. He had found
t hat many of the members of thu Homo
Uule party who had become disgusted
at the work of their own men had
turned nround and broken from the na
tive innks, voting with the Republican.-.
Should theie be n special bos-
slcn. some of tho Home Rulers would
not be allied with their own party bur
would Join hands to a eertnln extent
villi the Republicans.
The two candidates, said Mr. Rob-
eiluoii, were typical of tho two parties.
The one. tho Republican candidate.
wts a young man of progress, nlways
ready to do his level best for his party
nnd for the upbuilding of the Interests
of the community; tho other, an old
roan who can lenrn nothing, and even
cannot forget anything a man who
cannot be of value to himself or his
constituents should he bo elected. The
one was a candidate of the party tf
Industry, of territorial expansion nnd
progress In all things pertaining to
commerce; the other represents a
dead issue, nnd a party that does n it
know what It Is going to build Its next
platform out of.
Out Kamollllll Way.
Chairman Kauai had charge of the
Republican meeting In Kamollllll
which prated to bo n very successful
one, notwithstanding the stato of tho
weuthcr. The speakers wore Dan Ko
kona, John Kalama, J. M. Kancakua
nnd Candidate Harris. The remarks of
Mr. Harris wero heartily applauded,
especially when ho spoke of the duty
lot the voters to tnelr country nnd how
Washington, Mnrch '27. A genuine
sensation was caused In tho Houso to
day by the presentation by Richard
ion or Tennessee, tho Democratic tend
er, of charges aliening tho corrupt uao
of a fuud of $5W,000 In connection
with tho sole of tho Danish West In
(ll 's. The charges wero contained In
nn ulleged secret report of Captain
Walter Christmas to the Danish flov
ornment, which declared that ho had
employed corrupt means to bring th
negotiations for the sale oi too isinnns
to a consummation.
Tho report, extracts from which
Rlchanl8on read, mentioned the uames
of Abncr McKlnley nnd his partner.
Colonel Drown; C. W. Knox, who win
described as "nn Intlmnto friend of
Senator Hnnna"; Richard P. Ilvans.
who was said to represent "Mr. (lard
ner and his friends In the House," and
two press associations, tho names of
which were not given, as having been
Interested In tho mntter.
The charges against members of
Congress were not specific. Upon the
basis of this luport Rlchnidson asked
the adoption of n resolution fur the ap
pointment of nn Investigating commit
tee of seven. The Speaker lined that
the matter was prlllegcd, after Rich
aidson had amended Ills resolution so
n to include members of the Houso.
Uteat excitement ntteuded the whole
Cannon of Illinois Insisted that Rich
ardson's mcsentntlon was fragmen
tary, nnd that tho wliolnunattor should
go over until tonionow In order that
members might rend tho documents
presented, which Included nowspnuer
extracts, affidavits, etc.. In the record.
Christmas, ho declared, on his own
statement was a briber or worse. Il'it
tho House toted down the motion to
postpone, nnd the resolution, nrter be
ing amended In minor paitlculars, wis
adopted, Tho Speaker Immediately
appointed tho following commltteu tc

London, March 29. The Peking cor
respondent of the Times cables that
Puul l.cssar, the Russian Minister to
China, and l'llnce Chlng, president of
tho Chinese Foreign Office, have
agreed upon the main conditions of
the Manchurlan convention, and that
the early signing of the agreement Is
The evacuation of threo provinces Is
to be carried out In three successive
periods of six months from the signing
of the convention. Various vague con
ditions, such as "If the state of the
country permits," are to be excluded In
the agreement. It Is stipulated that
the convention must be tutlfied within
three months of the day It Is signed.
The correspondent says that China Is
inclined to agree to Germany's demand
for the extension of her railway from
Tslanfu, In Shantung province, across
the Gran canal at Techau to Chlng-
ting, on the Peking-Hankow line.
The next subject taken up was mil- lit might be discharged by voting tho I
nluipal government. It was desirable 'Republican ticket, which stands fori
for Honolulu to have local self-govern- good government,
incut for the ends and alms of the peo-1
pie could be better served tnereby. !
Centralization of power nnd thought
was not In line with the principles cf
Americanism. Mr. Harris was better
qualified for election and to hold leg
Islntlvo otThe than the Home Rule can
didate. Fire Claims.
The KIre Claims Commission was
the next matter taken up for consid
eration. Tho speaker was In hopes
that thnt body would soon complete
Its work. There had been about OOui)
nnd 6500 claims considered, but all
the Judgments wore not yet entered.
The claims, In tils judgment, would
amount In all to about J3,iUO,000. it
was his hope that the awards could be
made at an early dato because thu
stringency of tne money market de
manded that the amount of the clrcu
latlng medium be Increased.
Andrews in Rousing Speech.
1-orrln Andrews made an excellent
speech. He called on all Republicans
to turn out Wednesday and vote for
their candidate and If possible elect
him. The party and all voters were
In a peculiar position with a spring
'election on their hands. However, one
thing was certain. The Republicans
had a candidate, whllo tho Home Rul
crs and Democrats wero In tho uncn-'
viable position of being In doubt as lo
whothor they had one or not. Tho i
coming election would bo a forerunner I
of the fall campaign. It would not
necessarily decide how tho Fourth DIs
trlct would go In uio fnll, but It wou
lndicnto how men felt In politics. It
wotfbl draw the lines closer for tho fall
Home Rulers' Inability.
Mr. Andrews next gnve some of the,
reasons why men 'Should vote for tho
Republican party. The party always
remained true to Its platform and
whatever was done by the Republi
cans in the Legislature was done In
accordance with the Republican prin
ciples. The Home Rulors had promts-
