How One Alarmed
(Kreolnt to Ihe AiHeMleer )
FRANCISCO, Apr. 6.-The
SAN inongoone lun tttlrrcd up South
(.tii California in a ticmcndous
pilch of excitement In the past few
days. The mongoose was unco welcome
In this Btntc, but now he Is nil untied ns

has viarned California that
nrc not good citizen, and that
their presence does not accrue to the
Interests of any community.
Borne weeks ago a surgeon In the
United Stales Army nought to bring a
mongoose from the Philippines Into San
Francisco, but the entrance of the
"critter" was barred by Uncle Sam, nnd
a death sentence was pronounced
ngnlnst him at the Custom-house.
It will be recalled by the readers
of the Advertiser "that the animal

United States Appraiser's department,
but that finally the lawVas avenged.
Burgeon Hallwood was .earn fleeted by1
the execution of his pet that he wept(
nnd had the skin Htuffcd Ks a perpetual
memento of the cruelty jjtt the United
States laws which do nljf permit mongooses
to land on American soil.
It was not suspected that Southern
California had a mongoode In It until
one was found at the Chutes In Los
Angeles. The Chutes Is a place of
amusement, where those who like that
sort of thing descend from a giddy
height In n. boat which runs on wheels
Into a lake, which Is almost dry, but
which affords the sensation of seasickness.
A number of animals are kept
at the Chutes, and among' them was a

where California nnd Arizona met, and
have the mongoose turned loose.
Now Arizona has a mongoose find Its
troubles are begun. It Is suggested that
an energetic lawyer could make himself
famous by rounding up the mongoose
In Arizona, and having the law enforced.
A lawyer from Ilnwall especially
would have the knowledge of mongeese
requisite to prosecute the case properly,
and the friends of Judge A brum S.
Humphreys, who formerly lived in Arizona,
have Invited him to return at once
and begin -the mongoose feud.' As Humphreys
killed off the Goat effectually,
and Is understood to have lost his most
active occupation In Hawaii, and also
hit; money, a great chance awaits him

JUDGE MAKES A
High Sheriff Brown will impanel the
Jury for Judge Itoblnson's court for the
next term, which opens May 5th. Judge
Robinson Is to .preside nt the May term,
but under the new rules of court, -each
judge will draw his own jurymen. It
hn not been decided as yet whether
r not a grand jury will be called, but
In any event Its oesslon will be brief.
"The Legislature should enact ailaw
providing for the summoning of jurors
by lot," said Judge Robinson yesterday.
"The old law has been declared
Invalid by the Supreme Court, and
would be Impracticable now In any
event. The old statute provided that
there should be both a Hawaiian and
foreign jury, while the Organic Act
says that all court proceedings must be
hi the English language, wlftch of
course precludes the possibility of native
Hawallans serving, unless they
have also the other qualification.
"Formerly fifty names of Hawaiians
nd fifty of foreigners were prepared by
the sheriff and the Judge, acting in concert,
and written on slips of paper.
From these fifty names twenty-four
were drawn by lot by the clerk of the
court, twenty days before the opening
or the term. In the absence of a specific
statute the courts must now resort
to the common law method until a new
statute can bo enacted by the Legislature.
The common law provides that
the sheriff shall draw the jurors from
the body of the county, nnd while we
have no such subdivision here, the circuit
take Us place. THE BAILIFF
LAW GIVES THE BAILIFF ALL THE
POWKRS OF A SHERIFF, BUT I BELIEVE
THAT THE SHERIFF
SHOULD CONTINUE TO EXERCISE
THIS AUTHORITY AS IN THE PAST,
FOR IN THAT CASE THERE CAN
BE NO QUESTION AS TO THE ACTS
OF THE COURT.
"There Is some ilifflculty here In
framing a law which will do nway with
the present method of drawing Jurors,
and make Buch choice Bolely by lot, as
In, done In other places, but still the
eed of such a law Is urgent, and one
should be adopted. As It Is now. Jury
service becomes burdensome on some
members of the community, as It Is

Mrs. Mary Savage Porter
died yesterday afternoon at the
private hospital of Dr. Herbert on Ala-ken
street, of ncuto nephritis. Urn.
Mucpherson arrived In the Sierra on
Wednesday, and was removed to the
hospital at once. She was delirious
much of the time, and her death was
Mrs. Mncpherson was the only daughter
of Samuel and Sarah Savage. She
was married In 1B85 to Theodore C. Porter,
who was a Minister of Finance under
the ptovlslonal government. He wan
before thnt time In the Spreckels bank,
and ncted as well as the auditor of W.
G. Irwin &. Co., nnd of their ninny sugar
plantations. He went Into the
government or the representative of
thoe Interests and resigned shortly,
owing to dllTeionces which caused a
division among several supporters of
Iho government. The strain of the
work during the strenuous days of 1893
was too great for Mr. Porter, and he
. went to the const and was under treat-!
ment at a Livtrmore sanitarium, when.
eluding an attendant, he threw himself
under a passing train and was killed.
Mr. Porter w as for many years u member
of Hnwallan Lodge.
A lew jears ago Mrs. Macpherson
was again murrled. Shu had spent a
year and a half in Oakland before her
return, which resulted In the attaek
which ended her life. She was not In
the best or health before she left
San Francisco, but the illness which
proved fatal developed on the voyaga.
Mrs. Mncpherson is survived by her
husband and a daughter, Mary Allte
Porter, hor mother and two brothsrs.
She was born here. May 20, 18G0. The
funeral will take place this afternoon
fit 4 o'clock Horn the undertaking
of H. H. Williams.
William Haywood, counsel for the
Chamber of Commerce at Washington
hns forwarded to that body copies of
the hill which has been Introduced Into
the lower hous by Delegate Wilcox,
providing for the pjyment of the Fire
Claims losses according to the Judg
ments of the court, with Information
concerning Its status.
The bill was published In full In the
Advertiser yesterday morning. It provides
for the appropriation, out of any
money in the Treasury not otherwise
appropriated. As soon as the bill had
reached the committee on clalme, of
which Congressman J. V. Graff of Illinois
Is the chairman. It w.is ordered
printed, and copies of It were forwarded
to Surgeon General wymnn, with a
request for a report by that ofllclal upon
the accomplishments of the Board of
Health In stumping out the plague here,
and to what extent the service was of
benefit to the Mainland.
On previous occasions Dr. Wyinen
has shown that he 1b a friend of the
Islands, and those who know of the
position which Is now occupied by the
bill believe that the report will be favorable.
There Is expected to be a demand
for a report from the local quarantine
officers, upon the work durlnjj
the plague hereT"
As soon as Jack Weeday's challenge
to box Lon Agnew ten rounds for the
middle-weight championship of the Islands
appeared In Wednesday's Advertiser,
the latter lost no time In declaring
fils willingness to meet Weeday,
under certain conditions.
Agnew argued that he was only a
welter-weight, and as such did not
think that It would be fair to himself
to meet Weeday at the welterweight
limit of 158 pounds. He declared his
perfect willingness to box Weeday but
drew the weight line at 155 pounds.
Yesterday Weeday wns lnfurmed of
Agnew'i decision In the mafer, and
he at onco said that he would waive
the extra three pounds and n.eet Agnew
at the weight stipulated.
All that the men have now to do is
to sign articles and get Into training,
and then local lovers of good boxing
ifhould be treated to as fine an exhibition
of the manly art n has occurred
here for many a long day.
Weeday said last night that h would
be agreeable to box for the proceeds of
the house and a aide bet. or 75 per cent
of the house to go to the, winner and
25 per cent to the loser, "'

that the crop will be In the neighborhood
of 700,000 tone. Report also have
been received saying that spring plantings
are not showing the Increase expected,
due to the unfavorable conditions
existing; so that the present hut-look
is thnt there will not be the Increase
in the next Cuban crop that was
at one time expected. Stocks of sugar
in Cuba are large, latest advices placing
them at 351,000 tons; this supply
of sugar, however. Is not expected to
come on the market until nfter n reciprocity
treaty with Cuba has been put
Into operation; and this period It Is expected
will not be reached until the
active season for refined will have been
reached, when rellners will be ready
buyers of all supplies of raw sugnr that
will come on offer. A limited amount
of sugar Is being shipped from the
south side of Cuba, where It Is Impossible
to carry additional supplies owing
to the lnck of adequate storage facilities,
Such supplies, however, as
hnvj romp on offer have been quickly
taken by rcllnors at full values.
Another factor that Is having u fa
