Resolutions Protesting Against Admitting
Asiatic from Hawaii
Saoramento, Doc. G. A wook ago
Monday the Saoramento Council of
Federated Trados discussed Hawaiian
annexation and unanimously opposed
it. A commitloe was appointed
to present resolutions In accordance
with the council's vote, and tonight
the following was roceived and
Wuereas, Tho Saoramento Federated
Trades Council, representing
organized labor in Northern California,
exteusivoly roviewed the subject
of Hawaiian annexation from
the standpoint of wageworkers, and
whereas nothing is adduced
to indicate immediate or prospective
advantago to labor by the
annexation of Hawaii, thoroforo be
R'solvcd, That tho Saoramouto
Federated Trades Counuil is opposed
to and earnestly protests against
annexation for tho following reasons:
First Acquisition of the islands
will nowhere create a demand for
Second The thousands of Chinese
and Japanese laborers now in
Hawaii may or may not bo allowed
to migrato to the Paoiflo Coast in
tho event of annexation; however,
they cannot be deported and will
Third Tho imitative instinct of
Asiatic labor has ruined many industries
in California and the coolies
of Hawaii will quickly grap an opportunity
to further augment the
ranks of unemployed Americans.
Fourth One wageworker and his
family cannot exist on what an Asiatic
laborer thrives. If the education
and elevation of the producers
is among the aims of thoso who
shapo the destinies of this great republic,
in the name of justice wo
protest against ruinous competition
We protest against Hawaiian annexation.

DUTY ON DUTCH SUGARS.
An Export Bounty Paid by tho
Netherlands Onuses a Countervailing
Washington, Doc. 2. Tlu Secretary
of tho Treasury to-day
decided that the Netherlands Government
pays a bounty on nil raw
and refined sugars exported from
that country, and hence under the
new traifl aot all sugar from the
Netherlands entering the United
States are subjeot to a discriminating
duty equal to theoxport bounty
paid. The exact rate of this countervailing
duty has not yet been
definitely ascertained, but it is said
that it will approximate lHcents per
100 pounds on raw sugrr and a
slight advance on those figures on
It is known that tho Secretary has
also conio to the conolusion that
thn Belgian Government pays an
export bounty on sugar, and a
decree to this effect may be expected
in a short time. The additional
duties will apply from September
Tho amount of raw sugar imported
from the Netherlands during tho
laBt year was over 88,000,000 pounds,
of which 25,500,000 woro not above
No. 1G, Dutch standard, and
above that number. Tho sugar
imports from Belgium during the
last year aggregated over 123,000,
000 pounds, of which nearly 121,00u,
000 woro below No. 10.

AN INSU1.T TO RUSSIA.
Secretory of Hor Embiissy at Constantinople
Attacked by Turkish
Athens, Nov. 80. M.
secretary of tho Russian embassy
at Constantinople, who is a
member of tho committee for the
repatriation of the Thossallan refugees,
was attacked yesterday by
beggars at Volo, tho prinoipal port
of Thossaly. A Turkish military
patrol that was passing joined the
beggars in tho attack, and M.
was knocked down by one
of his assailants. Ho wob badly
battered with rifles and eventually
bound with cords. Tho English,
French and Italian members of the
committee arrivod on the senno at
this point and after much talk succeeded
in getting tho cords out. An
aide of tho Sultan then arrested M.
Tsherbatscheff, and his colloagues
had much difficulty in obtaining his
roloase by protesting against the
outrage. The incidont has stirred
the diplomatists and is likely to
stiffen Russia in hor dealings with
Tho Hawaiian Question Must Walt.
Washington, Doc. 8 Senator Davis,
ohairman of the Foreign Relations
Committee, says he is not
ready to proceed with tbo Hawaiian
annexation treaty, and cannot now
fix a timo when it will be taken up,
although he thought it would bo
before the holidays.
It is stated by those in a position
to know that the reason tho Hawaiian
treaty is not pushed in the Son-ate
is because the friends of the
measure have grave doubts as to
their ability to secure tho necessary
two-thirds' voto to pass it.
The impression prevails that it
may be necessary to pass a joint
resolution and to annex the islands
by legislation. It has been found
that a number of the Senators who
were counted for the treaty are
against it, while others have expressed
doubts ab,uit hasty action.
