FOR A PROTECTORATE
Hawaiian Residents Are
Weary of the Dole
PRINCESS KAIULANI NOW
It Is Said That a Niece of the
Ex-Queen Will Ascend
ALL PARTIES DESIRE A CHANGE.
Editor Hayne Says the Present
Administration Will Not Last
CHICAGO, 111., Oct. 8.-"Within eight
months the Hawaiian republic will be over
thrown and Princess Kaiulani, a niece of
Queen Liiiuokalani, will be made Queen of
the islands," said Julian D. Hyne, editor
of the Hawaiian in the Great Northern
"It is a fact that everybody is sick of the
new republic, and it is recoguized in
Hawaii that the monarchy will be re
"I am surprised that the people of the
United States know so little of the present
condition of affairs in the islands, I; he con
tinued. "Briefly. I will touch upon the
financial standing of the present Govern
ment. Those in charge acknowledge by
their own statements that they have been
running behind at the rate of $45,000 per
month since they began. In other words,
they are $995,000 more in debt now than at
the time of the establishment of the repub
lic. Since March 18, 1895, they have been
unable to pay their bills for current ex
"It is the hope of both those who favored
the new Government and those who op
posed it that Great Britain and the United
States will make Princess Kaiulani Queen
with a protectorate. To favor the young
Princess, together with her guardian,
Theodore Davis, Major Wodehouse, the
ex-Minister from England, and George
Macfarlane, who waa King Kalakaua's chief
financial agent, are all in Europe at this
time, the supposition being that they are
looking to bringing about such an arrange
ment with England.
"In this connection Lorin S. Thurston,
who was turned down by the Government
at vVashir.gton as instigator and prime
mover in the rebellion, has become dis-
Eatibf-ed with the Government, and is now
openly favoring the establishment of
Princess Xaiulani with a protectorate.
'■Queen Liliuokalaui is, of course, out of
it, but it is understood that she would be
pleased with such an arrangement, and
her friends openly support it. There is
really no opposition to it except on the
part of Davis, the Secretary of the Treas
ury, and Judge .ludd, Chief Justice of the
Supreme Court, and a few other officials.
Even the Government employes, who are,
by the way, the same men who were in
office under Queen Liliuokalani, are in
favor of the protectorate."
"How about President Dole?"
"Well, I would not even say that Presi
dent Sanford B. Dole would not like it.
He gets at present 112,000 a year, and he
gets it, too. As often as the month comes
round, whoever goes up or down, Dole
draws his $1000 and ships every dollar of it
to San Francisco banks. He admits that.
You see, every one there knows that the
republic has only a few months more of
life. People don't think of paying taxes,
and the Government can't force payment
because no one would buy the land. They
have given it up entirely.
"The whole thing, of course, was a
scheme to advance the interests of those
engaged in the sugar trade, and they have
discovered their mistake. To-day they are
split, and the majority of them are in favor
of the Princess.
"William R. Castle, the Hawaiian Min
ister to the United States, whose creden
tials have not yet been passed upon, beat
around the bush the other day in the Bos
ton papers, but all who are acquainted
with the subject can see that he meant
practically the same as I am telling you
now. We calculate that eight months
from now at the most the republic will be
turned over to the Princess."
Turning from the political to the busi
ness situation Mr. Hyne explained that
the Chinese and Japanese were taking
hold of certain industries to an alarming
"Business is really dead," he declared.
'•How will the establishment of the pro
tectorate help matters?"
"Well, people will pay their taxes in the
first place, and the Government will brace
'What will be done with the Chinese and
"That's the question which will develop
later. Ido not see what can be done. The
whole situation over there is extremely in
teresting to us, and there are several
problems which will have to be solved."
Mr. Hyne left to-night for San Francisco
en route to Honolulu.

The Hawaiian question has assumed a

The Dole Government is cognizant of
this purpose on the part of Japan and is

said that Mr. Cleveland will be con

SAVED JtY BLOOMERS.
A. Drowning Man Resetted by a Brave
NEW HAVEN, Coxy., Oct. B.— As the
steamer Richard Peck, from New York,
' x iuto her slip at Bell dock on Sunday
night a man fell overboard. For a mo
ment none of the crowd that rushed to the
rail offered assistance. Then a young
woman slipped off her skirt and, clad in
bloomers, jumped after the struggling man
and helped him ashore.
The woman was Dorothy Chestic, the
English actress, who was arrested in New
York for riding astride a horse in Central
Park. The man she rescued was George
H. Boswell, a miner from San Francisco.
When seen at the New Haven House
yesterday Miss Chestic said: "Oh.it was
nothing. If I saved the man's life the
thanks belong to my bloomers."
STRIKE ON THE WORLD.
AH Employes of the Mechan

But They Were Induced to Return

NEW YORK, N. V.. Oct. 9.-Promptly
at 12 o'clock this morning the entire force
of compositors, pressmen, stereotypers
and other attaches of the mechanical de
partment of the New York World went on
a strike, causing consternation to the
management, and at 12:45 work in the
building was at a standstill.
The strike appears to be sympathetic
with the employes of Georxe R. Read, who
has charge of the Pulitzer building and
hires the elevator men, engineers and elec
The trouble started several weeks ago,
when several elevator conductors struck
on account of a reduction in their salaries
from $12 to $10 a we«k. The trouble was
apparently settled at the time, but since
then there has been growling among the
other employes of Read, and they succeeded
in enlisting the sympathy of the members
oT the "Big Six" and other labor organiza
tions represented in the building.
The engineers and electricians, who be
lonir to labor unions, assert that non
union men have been placed at work with
a view of taßing their places.
The strike was started shortly before 12
o'clock, when the engineers and elec-
tricians, about 15 in number, left the build
ing. It was stated that non-union men
were secured and hurriedly put in their
places. \Vhen this fact became known it
is said the compositors refused to work
until they were removed and were joined
shortly afterward by the others.
The management at once made en
deavors to settle the trouble and about 1
o'clock the men returned temporarily in
order to enable the World to get out their
It was stated at 1:20 this morning that
the compositors and other employes of the
World did not strike, but were forced to
quit work on account of the firemen and
engineers stopping work, which shut off
the light and the power operating the
type-setting machines. It is authorita
tively stated that the "Big six" took no
part in the strike and had no connection
with the employes of George R. Reed.
Business Manager Xorris of the World
arrived on the scene shortly after 1
o'clock. He said that the trouble had
nothing to do with the World manage
ment. The firemen are also employed by
Reed, and the trouble was caused princi
pally by them. The fires were allowed to
rundown. Operations in the building were
delayed over an hour and a half. The
strike, it is stated, was ordered by the

men are now engaged in the hilarious but
ruinous sport of slashing rates. Some of
the agents have closed their eyes and gone

Santa Fe precipitated the cutting by re

have followed suit. Now the rate on first

a week ago, died at 1 o'clock to-day. Ever
since he received the stroke the doctors
have said that he could not recover. Their
only surprise has been that he could linger
so long. He has been steadily, though

PETERSBURG, Va., Oct. B.— The an
nouncement of the death of General Ma
hone was received in Petersburg with sin
cere regret, especially by those who served
in his old brigade during the war. His re
mains will arrive here at 10 o'clock to
morrow morning, and the funeral services
will be held at St. Paul's Episcopal Church
and will be conducted by Rev. C. R.
Haines and Rev. John Rideout.
• General William Mahone was born in •
Southampton County, Virginia, December
1, 1826. He grnduated at the Virsinia Mil
itary Institute in 1847, and until the begin
ning of the civil war was engaged in engi
neering and was the constructor of the
Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad. He
joined the Confederate army in 1861, took
part in the capture of the Norfolk Navy
yard; in April of that year, raised and com
manded the Sixth Virginia Regiment, was
engaged in most of the battles of the
peninsular campaign, those on the Rap
pahannock and around F^tersbnrg, where
he won the sobriquet of the "Hero of the
Throughout his career in the army he
was noted as a fighting commander. He
wag commissioned brigadier-general in
March, 1864, and major-general in August
of the same year. He subsequently led a
division in Ambrose P. Hill's corps.and at
Lee's surrender was at Bermuda Hundred.
At the close of the war he became presi
dent of the Norfoik and Tennessee Rail
road. He also engaged in politics, and
was the leader of the movement that
elected Gilbert C. Walker Governor of Vir
ginia. After failing to secure the nomina
tion for that office in 1878 he organized and
became the leader of the Reartjuster party.
He was elected to the United States Sen
ate in 1881 and served until 1887. Though
elected as a Readjuster he voted with the
Republicans, and by so doing gave them
the control of the Senate. While in the
Senate a dramatic incident occurred
in debate between General Mahone and
Senator Vorhees. The Senator from
Indiana upbraided General Mahone for
acting with the Republicans, and when he
had concluded his remarks General Ma
hone said that denunciation of him must
atop, and asked whether the Senator from
Indiana adopted the phrase "renegade
Democrat" which he had used in his
speech. Senator Voorheea replied that he
indorsed every sentiment and wt>rd he had
uttered ; that he indorsed the word "rene
gade" and his criticism of the course of
the Senator from Virginia.
Senator Mahone in reply said : "That is
an assertion that no brave or honorable
man would make. I denounce it as such.
Let him take tbat and wear it." The inci

Both Houses of the Great

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Oct. B.— lt was
with somewhat of a feeling of relief that
the Episcopal House of Deputies of the
general convention suspended its session
of the revised constitution for a while to
day to take up a few crumbs of still an
other revision of tbe revision that had
fallen from the Bishops' table. The fath
ers of the church, themselves probably not
anxious to be forest-ailed, or unwilling to
allow the lower house to go very far into
its work without their own views and
ideas, foreign to the outside world, had
been doing a little revising on their own
account for a couple of days and the re
sults were apparent in the messages pre
sented, with courtly dignity, by Secretary
The Bishops preferred the term "gen
eral convention" to "synod," and the term
"assistant Bishop" to "Bishop condu
tator," both suggestions being in a line
with those already approved by the house.
They also favored the title of "primate"
for tbe presiding officer, recommended
that retired Bishops be given a seat in the
house and proposed a new title to the con
stitution. Such of the various amend
ments as the house had not already ap
proved provoked a debate that covered two
sessions, but the Bishops had their way
right through and only the arrival of the
hour for adjournment prevented the add
ing of the word "primate" to the minutes
of the day.
Just before the delegates dispersed the
House of Bishops announced concurrence
in the resolutions dividing the dioceses of
California, Maryland and Kentucky. The
first vote by dioceses of the present con
vention was demanded upon the designa
tion of the constitution sent down by the
Bishops. This ran as follows: "The con
stitution and canons of the government of
that portion of the Catholic church known
In law as the Protestant Episcopal church
of the United States of America."
There was no debate and the designation
was adopted. No sooner had the result of
the Ijallot been declared than some of the
members took alarm and wanted the rest
of the message postponed until a more
convenient season. Dr. Huntington, the
New York orator and parliamentarian,
said the house had done what was abso
lutely without precedent in passing an
amendment to the constitution without
discussion and he hoped that such action
would never be repeated. Ex-Senator
Edmunds, however, thought it would be
most expeditious to go on with the subject
at once, so that if any amendments weie
decided upon the Bishops might have
them without delay.
The house thought th<> same way. The
proposition of the Bishops to substitute
the word "synod" for "convention" was
non-concurred in by a vote, the volume of
which seemed nearly equal. On the
proposition to accept the title "Bishop
Coadjutor" instead of "Assistant Bishop"
as adopted by the house the vote by dioceses
was 55 to 37, nine being divided.
At the opening of the afternoon session
the house members of the joint committee
appointed to select the next place of meet
ing reported in favor of Boston and an
amendment was made substituting Louis
ville and the matter went over.
Ex-Senator Edmunds of Vermont asked
for leave of absence to leave the city for
the rest of the session and tendered his
resignation as a member of the committee
on constitutional amendments. The leave
was granted and the resignation accepted.
Dr. Rhodes of Southern Ohio raised a
question as to the mode of procedure
observed in the morning in acting upon
the proposed amendments to the new con
stitution. Heureedthe house in a rather
long speech to take up the committee's re
port and act upon its provision inde
pendently without section 3, as adopted by
the House of Bishops, providing that the
senior Bishop of the church should act as
the presiding officer of the House of
Bishops and be known by the title of pri
mate, and to that end moved the postpone
ment of the message of the House of
Bishops. This provoked considerable dis
cussion, but was lost, and the question
then fell upon the amendment offered by
Judge Bennett to take the place of section
2, as approved by the House of Bishops.
The section as approved by the Bishops
extended to the resigned Bishops whose
resignations were made necessary by in
firmity the right to vote in the House of
Bishops, and the amendment deprived
them of this right. One of the delegates
from Rhode Isfand called attention to the
fact that if the section be adopted as ap
proved by the Bishops, his small State
would have two retired Bishops and one
officiating Bishop in that house.
Mr. Lightner, lay delegate for Minne
sota, thought the line should be very care
fully drawn in granting permission to vote
in the House of Bishops. Dr. McVicker
of Philadelphia also spoke in the same
tenor, and said that in denying retired
Bishops the right to vote the house would
not be depriving them of any inherent right.
He spoke strongly against the plan, but
Judge Bennett's amendment was lost and
the house concurred in the action of the
House of Bishops.
George C. Thomas of Pennsylvania shot
off the first arrow with an amendment sub
stituting the words "Presiding Bishop."
Dr. Elliott of Maryland stepped to the
chancel, and with his tall form towering
above his associates from the altar steps,
said with cutting sarcasm that he was
greatly surprised at the marked change of
temper which had come over the house.
The members of this democratic body had
met with representatives of the House of
Bishops and unsolicited had extended
and broadened the episcopal power of the
Bishops, and now these members wanted
to create an office and adopt for it a name
which carried with it every suggestion of a
hierarchy. This church has retained its
name and its institutions for 100 years,
and now it was proDOsed to transform the
face and personality of the church. He
had even heard one member say that he
hoped he would some time see an Arch
bishop in every State. There was too
much of a tendency to adopt the customs
of the Church of England, and he did not
consider it dignified. The idea that the
church in this country was identical with
the church in England had in the past
worked great injury to the American
branch, from which it was just beginning
to recover, and this recovery was due to
the simplicity of the American church.
Dr. McKim of Washington and Dr. Har
wood of Connecticut also made addresses
in the same tenor, and Dr. Huntington of
New York presented the other side of the
question. It required all the courage he
had, he said, to stand op to reply to three
of his best friends after the strong appeals
to good feeling which he had just heard.
If it was intended that the office of
primate should be elected he would op
pose it to the end, and if it was proposed
to associate it with a new office he would
oppose it, but it was the intention to be
merely as a title for the senior Bishop,
and thus it would be a mark of veneration
to old age, and veneration for old ag« was
one of the primary principles of good
church morals. What he had intended to
say yesterday was that he wanted to see a
presiding Bishop ia every State, instead of
an Archbishop. The adoption of the term
Archbishop would, in his opinion, be ab
surd. This remark aroused some feeling
on the part of Dr. Carey of Albany, who
rose to defend himself, and Dr. Hunting
ton was compelled to mollify his friend by
withdrawing the word "absurd."
Dr. Green of Cedar Rapids, lowa, thought
the house was wasting time in eulogizing
American churchtnanship. Puritanism
had been the spirit of American church
manship during the first fifty years of the
country. That, and not adherence to the
English customs, was what had worked
injury to the churoh. But the course had
been gradually changed for the better. It
was the broadening out and assumption of
greater dignity that had now made this
church one of the greatest institutions in
the country, while the "American" insti
tutions were crumbling to pieces at its
feet. The American church did not go to
England for Primate or Primus, but it did
go there for altar and chancel, for creed
and Te Deum and for all the beautiful forms
of worship now in use. And, why should
the American church not go to its
mother for its names as well as its form of
worship? He would welcome the word
Primate, as it would put this church in
touch with that grand Anglican Christian
ity to which it owed its being.
After brief addresses by Dr. Battershall
of Albany, Dr. Park of Massachusetts, and
Mr. Fairbanks of Florida, Mr. Thomas'
amendment was balloted on and lost by a
vote of 152 ayes to 162 nays.
The question will thus revert to section
3 as adopted by the House of Bishops when
the matter is again considered. At 5:30
the house adjourned.

NEW HAVEN, Cora., Oct. 3.-A most
dastardly plot and one which came near
accomplishing its purpose was reported to
the office of the State Attorney this after
noon. It was only by a rare piece of good
fortune that the intended victim escaped.
The affair has caused great excitement
in the city and if the miscreants can be
captured they will undoubtedly be treated
in a summary manner. The person in
tended for the victim was Justice
Henry Beadle, who was holding his court
at Cheshire, about fourteen miles from
here. Some time last Saturday morning
the Town Clerk discovered several small
pieces of gaspipe in a dark part of the
cellar under the Town Hall. He picked
them up and found projecting from each
end a partially burned fuse. They were
filled with explosives, and had it not been
that the flame was quenched by the damp
earth they would undoubtedly have ac
complished their purpose.
The matter was reported at once to the
authorities and placed in the hands of
special officers and for the time being kept
To-day the most sensational feature
came. Town Clerk Landon, who had ob
served some suspicious characters around
the Town Hall, went once more into the
cellar and found several more improvised
bombs, each with a time-fuse burning and
the explosive nearly reached. He put the
light out at once.
One of the bombs had become wet
through the moisture in the cellar, which
had prevented its exploding after the fuse
had burned down so far as to blacken the
gas-pipe covering. The other two wera
comparatively dry, and had the fuses been
allowed to burn out the result would have
been terrible, as the time was in the mid
dle of the day, when the hall was crowded
State Detective Leet is on the case, but
there is not the slightest clew as to the
perpetrators of the deed.
Justice Beadle lately convicted several
persons of violating the liquor law, and it
is thought that the attempt was made by
these, but the authorities seW at the idea,
as they do not think that any of the
liquor-dealers would resort to such ex
tremities. There is no other plausible

NEW YORK, N. V., Oct. 8.-AugustU3
Coeel, 55 years old, of West Brighton,
Staten Island, attempted suicide last night
by shooting himself twice in the forehead
with a 32-caliber revolver. Co?el tried to
end his life because he could not support
his family. He was once wealthy, but his
fortune was lost through the operations of
Frederick Baker last winter. Baker was
executor of Cogel's father's estate.
Cogel and his sister, who inherited their
father's fortune of $100,000, consisting of
both cash and real estate, left the manage

suddenly died at the time of the disclosure
of the bank defalcation it was discovered
that he had spent all the money of the
Cogels and sold their real estate, which
was situated in Jersey City. Baker Had
paid to them their annual income of $1200
each as a "blind." Cogel will recover.
