The camp of instruction of the brigade
for 1S97 will be remembered as the most
soldierly, most orderly, and most instruc
tive of those heretofore held. Tile army
offirers detailed for duty with the brigade
have taken an unusual interest In nur
-various duties, and the men have shown
n commendable zeal and anxiety to learn
any and everything pertaining to the
duties of a soldier. The camp is always
quiet and orderly after taps, and it is the
rarest thing to be obliged to order lights
out. The order compelling men to we.ir
coats buttoned at all times when out of
company streets Is well observed, and
the men in consequence when oft duty
present a far better appearance -than thoy
would otherwise The improvement In
drill and discipline has been particu
larly marked, and the duties of sentinels
have been better performed than ever
The reluctance of the men to go through
the long extended-order drill of the morn
ing was the cause of several clashes lie
twecn the officers and men. In Company D,
Second Battalion, three privates skipped
the drill, and were later ordered by Capt
Stutz to march up and down the company
streets for fifteen minutes carry ug a
etick of wood in place of the musket. At
first this was legarded as a joke by the
culpritF, but later, when a small crowd
gathered to -watch their promenade, they
grew tired, and two of them refused to
continue Capt. Stutz at once ordered a
cciporal and guard to convey the recalci
trants to the guardhouse There was some
-iiuestlon as to whether Capt. Stutz did not
exceed the limit of his powers in imposing
such n penalty, and upon the matter being
Tef erred to Col May, the officer of the day,
he informed Capt Stutz that the penalty
was a somewhat too severe one. He also
stated to Capt. Stutz that matters of
that kind should properly be referred to the
major of the battalion.
AttJ.e request of Capt Stutz the two dls
obediert privates were released.
The intense heat of the day furnished
more work for the hospital corp than at
any time jdnce the opening of the camp.
Fix cases were treated at tho hospir.nl,
all of them being more or less the result
of the heat.

Commander Dennis Mullon, United States
Navywas placsd on trial before a general
court-martial at the Washington navy yard
yesterday afternoon. The charges on
'which he is beiug tried are those of
intoxication on and off duty, while the ac
cused was serving as commandant of the
Pensnoola navy yard, during the summer
aud fall or 188C and the ensuing winter
of '8G and '87.
The flr.r charge or Intoxication orf duty
contains seven speciricatlona alleging
specific cases of intoxication at the Eh
carnbia notol at Pensacola, aud on the
cars of the Pensacola Traction Company.
The second charge, that of iutoxicatiou on
duty, contains six specificat ons alleging
specific cases of Intoxication at the Pcif&a
oola navy yard.
It Is charged that Commander Mullan

when he fsumed command of the navy
yard, and that he was also under the
iullucuce of liquor wheu he was relieved.

Attorneys McCammon and Haydeu, coun
sel Tor tlie accused, came early. Capt
John Mullan, brother to Commander Mul
lan, was with the attorneys, and displayed
an arfectionate lntereht in the cause of
his brother. Capt Mullan explained to
the reporter for The Times that this
court-mat Mai was ordered by the Secre
tary of the Navy, at the earnest solicita
tion of Commander Mullan, and certain
coi ret-pondeiice which was read during the
progress of the trial confirmul tills btate
nient. Capt. Mullan stated that these
htories of Intoxication bad been originated
by a lot of women at the navy yard
at Pen-sacola. The stories had been given
considerable ciiculatlon, and a court of
Inquiry had been ordered at theTensacoIa
navy yard. But, said Capt John Mullan.
the commander Is an applicant for pro
motion to the rank of captain, and will
soon apply for examination in consequence
of the vacancies which will follow the re
tirement of Admiral Brown. The com
mander demanded that the charges against
him be tried according to martial law,
tli at there might be no stain upon his
name or record.
The accused entered the courtroom a
few mluutes before 1 o'clock and sat with
his counsel. He wore the full uniform of
a commander, and bore himself mauf ully.
He responded to questions in a firm and
respectfnl manner, and evinced no trace
Commodore Norton culled the court to
order at 1:113.
The cliarges and specifications were
read, and as the Judge advocate turned to
ask ths; accused to plead Attorney Hayden
objected and presented a motion that sped
ficatii.n No. 7 and charge No. 1 be stricken
out on the ground that they were uncertain
as to time and place. Attorney McCammon
read from the rules and regulations of the
Navy in support of tills motion. Tho judge
advocate was ready with a mass of au
thorities and arguments to prove that the
specification was sufficiently exact as to
time and place.
A warm debate ensued between the
prosecution and the defense on the ques
tion of the exactitude of the specifi
cation. Thecourtroom was ordered cleared
of all but the judges while they should
consider the motion made by the defense.
After due consideration, Commodore Nor
ton announced that the court had sustained
the point niade by counsel for defense
and that specification 7 and charge 1
would be stricken out. This specirica

seen intoxicated bj' a certain officer in the

A. G. WOLF, Receiver
Hawaii. He merely desired to call the
attention or this government to the fact
that these treaty rights do exist, and the
Japanese government will expect them to
He alio spid this his country Is now en
gaged in a controversy with Hawaii con
cerning the Japanese treaty rights, and
he desired to lenow if this government,
should Hawaii be annexed, will assume
the responsibility for the violation of the
treaty with Japan by the Hawailans.
The protest was more in the nature of
an inquiry, but beneath it all Is an im
plied threat that If Japan Is not accorded
what she wants, bhe will insist by Torce,
if necet-sary, to obtalu It. It is Lelieved
that, when t he treaty is made public Japan
will file a formal protest.
Discussing the political lelatiuns of
Hawaii In the United States, cx-llinister
Thurston says: "A host of American
itatesnm have favored the control ot
Hawaii, among them Presidents l.Hmore,
Pierce, Buchanan. Johnson, Grant. Arthur
and Harrison, and Secretaries of State Web
ster, lAgare. Huchauan, Clayton, ilarcy,
Seward, Fish, Illaine and Foster, to say
nothing ofv United States ministers and
prominent Army and Naval officers.
"With Hawaii in the hands of any hostile
power, the only coaling station from
Nicaragua to Hong Kong, and from San
Frnncinco to Samoa, Avould be closed to
American cruisers, anil made a center from
which hostile descents could be made upon
the Pacific coast, mid Its commerce de
stroyed. With Ha wail in the control ot the
United Suites the base ot supplies of a
hostile naval force is thrown back to the
entire width of the Pacific a practically
piohlbitlve distance, as coal enough would
have to l carried to fcteam vessels the
Pacific and return, a disrance of from
7,000 to S.000 miles, to say nothing of coal
consumption in operating on the Pacific
coast, a quantity far beyond the -capacity
or any wandiip in existence. American
control or Hawaii Is, therefore, a practical
insurance against naval attack on the
Pamtic coast and on shipping in that
One or two of the expressions in Presi
dent Harrison's letter transmitting the
previous treaty are especially applicable
at this time. Among other things Mr.
"The imluenee and interest of the
Uuited States in the islands must be
increased and not diminished. Only two
courses are now open; one the establish
ment of a protectorate by the United States
and the other annexation, full and complete.
1 think the latter course, which has been
aoopted in the treaty, will be highly pro
motive of the bChtinterests or the Hawaiian
people, and is the only oue that will ade
quately secure the iDterets of the "United
States. These interests are not wholly
selrish. It is essential that aone or the
other great powers shall secure these
islands. Such a possession would not
consist ivith our safety nnd with the
peace of the world. This view of the
situation is so apparent and conclusive
that no protect has been heard from
any government against proceedings look
ing to annexation!"
"There is no doubt in my mind," said
Senator Perkins of California, discusMog i
the Hawaiian question, without regard to
annexation, "that the present treaty with
the Hawauans gives all the advantage to
that people In 1876, when the treaty
went into effect, they imported to this
country 13,000 tonb of sugar. Under the
influence of that treaty, which naturally
lands all the Hawaiian sugars in this
country, tlie pioductlon had increase Jast
year to 227,000 tons, and there is every
probabdity that, by next year, .this output
of the Hawaiian Islands will .aggregate
300.000 tons. Nowherocansugarbe roiid
so cheaply as in Hawaii, and every pound
of it competes with the beet sugar or
this country, and particularly that of the
"The conditions have changed wonder
fully since that treaty was negotiated. 1
Every time our tarirfis changed ot modi
fied, this treaty should be .modified to
coriespond to it There may have been
some pretext for the treaty In the first
place, but tlie enorjmous increase of the
Hawaiian sugar crop makes it Impossible
for the United States to langei .donate
this bounty of between eight and nine
millions of dollars .annually. The expenses .
.of our (Government are steadily increasing,
and, wheji it Is a serious question where
the .revenue J.s to come from to aieet
them, we should not hesitate to curtail ;
this donation in .some decree.
"J believe ourtjatlej-elaUoas with Hawaii :
ought to be maintained, but I also believe
that the conditions aieed modification. The'
Hawailans could not object ito the .impost-''
tion of a proportional part of tlie sugar
dirties levied on other nugajs., assessed
against them. Under the pending bill the
luty on ugar similar to that which comes
from Hawait is 11-2 cents a pound. I
would put a duty on Hawaiian sugar of
oriB-haLf.a cent.tipound.ar $10 a shortton.
This would, on the .basis of the last year's
importations, -net us a -revenue of $2,
227..000 ,and equalize, to some .extent, the
one-sided .character of the present ar
rangement. We need that revenue badly""
"How do the -people of California look ,!
tuponthe treaty? Are theyan favor or op
posed to it''' Air. Perkins was .asked
"They are divided,"' rreplied JMr. Per
kins. "The agricultural sections believc
that the existence ot this treaty is atand

There are valuable properties in the island
