WASHINGTON, Sept. 10. — Admiral
Bradford, chief of the Bureau of Equip
ment, has been informed that Slgnor
Marconi will come to Washington to dis
cuss with him the proposed experiments
with wireless telegraphy to be conducted
by the American navy.
Slgnor Marconi will bring with him a
complete wireless telegraphy equipment,
which will be used In the proposed exper
iments. The inventor is expected to arrive
in the course of a few weeks.
As soon as Bignor Marconi and his In
struments are here Admiral Bradford will
recommend to the department that one of
the vessels of the navy be set aside for
experimental work. It is proposed to
place a receiver on the shore, and the
warship will communicate with It at vary
ing distances. By this means it Is believed
the system can be developed and the value
of It definitely determined.
If the experiments are a success it is
not unlikely that the navy will be
equipped with Instruments so that prompt
communication can be had between ves
sels or between vessels and the shore.

LABORERS GAIN
A BIG POINT
Trouble of Planters in
Hawaii.
FORCED TO RELEASE MEN
GALICIANS WHO HAD VIOLATED
THEIR CONTRACTS.
Having Been Imprisoned, Publ'c
Opinion Grew So Strong That the
Employers Were Forced to
Free Them.
HONOLULU, Sept. 2.-This afternoon
will long l" ;i memorable cue in the an
nuls of Hawaii, not merely because it
curiously happen* to coincide with tlie
tixty-flrsi anniversary of the birth of ex-
Queeh Liliuolcalani, luu because the
pressure of public opinion has won a
grand victory in obtaining the release by
tbe Oafau Bugar Plantation Company of
the thirty-six Qallclan contract laborer*
Imprisoned In Oahu jail for violatinK
their contracts.
Jt will he remembered that in November
of last year 42 out of a hatch of Jim Cali
clans were arrested under the slavery
penal contract labor laws fur deserting
Contract service. They were fined and
Imprisoned until they were willing; to re
turn to that service. They declined to
return to work, preferring to work upon
the roads in the striped suits of me con
vict until, at 1 o'clock to-day, they were
released.
For some time past the cancellation of
the contracts and the release of the men
have been considered by the managers of
the Oahu plantation and the Planters'
Supply Association. Then the more virile,
if savage, attacks -of the Sunday Volcano
Increased popular Indignation, but when
The Call added Its Influence in attacking;
the nefarious system It was soon known
and felt that tne planters would have to
BUCCUmb and establish what Minister of
Interior King, president of the Hoard
of Immigration, deem* a very bad. dan
gerous and far-reaching precedent in the
release of these men.
The Government and Messrs. 11. Hack
feld & Co., agents of the Oahu planta
tion, have for some short time past been
in negotiation .f the term Is noi Inappro
priati for the release, but until last
evening the details could not bo arranged,
as the Government had no power to act
except under the terms of an absolute
request for their release by the parties in
terested In placing them in jail.
The directors of the Oahu plantation
met, and In view of the serious probable
effects upon plantln Interests In general,
Itea the uirectorate of the Ranters*
Association, who advised the action as
esslon to public opinion. The result
was a statement to the Government that
the Oahu Company would have no objec«
tlon to the release of the prisoners if
the Government Bhould see m to take
such a st.",v The Government notified
the plantation thai this communication
did not afford them sufficient basis upon
which to act. This morning Mr. E. Buhr,
managing director for H. Hackfeld &
Co., forwarded a letter containing an
unq lallfled request (or the release of the
men, and Attorney-General Cooper
promptly gave th< necessary Instructions
for their release
The plantation will be the loser of the
sums advanced to the men, amounting
to something over $6000. They are also
willing to give them work, but under con
tract. If the men are willing to work
they can obtain it with several contract
ors in road building, at which they are
now adepts; but If they prefer to loaf
the vagrancy laws will be enforced
against them.
There was a slight demonstration when
the men paraded the streets after their
release, and the supporters of Mr. Sewall
are endeavoring to make political capital
out of It as against the Dole faction.
Monday next, being Labor day. will be
duly observed here for the first time us
a seml-hollday.
EDITOR FRANCIS SAYS
DREYFUS MAY ESCAPE
BOSTON, Sept. 10.— M. Francis, one of
i the editors of the Paris Figaro, was in
Boston when the fact of Dreyfus' con
demnation and Bentence came in. When
asked what the general sentiment in
France was. he said:
"The thinking men all over France.
do matter how much they may have
thought him guilty, expected that on
'■ the grounds Of expediency he would
never he adjudged guilty. They thought
that the fear of a revolution would pre
vent such a finding by the court-mar
tial. I would not be surprised if at this
, minute Paria was in an uproar ami a
revolutionary mob sweeping through
I her streets. There may be one, two or
; throe generals killed. It would not sur
! prise me. Is this the end? It is only
the beginning, it is the end of the
DreyfUl case, as far as that goes. That
is to say, he can never again appeal
it and the Court of Cassation will have
no further jurisdiction over it. Hut it
is the beginning of all sorts of trouble.
; The case will become a matter of re
! ligion and a religious war. The Jew?
will spend their last cent to find out
the truth, and it may land on the gen
erals. The Jews do nut care who their
investigation strikes.
"What docs the sentence of ten years
■ in prison mean?" and he shrugged his
rhoulders. "That means a year. He
will be sent, probably, to a military
prison in Africa, and if he Is not killed
within a year, a way will be opened for
him to get away and safe into another
land."
"Will the Cabinet make any move
in the matter? What will the Cabinet
do if there Is a revolution?"
Sinip'y disappear; go away. We
j change our cabinets as you put on and
| take off a coat."
AFRAID TO SEND THE
EXHIBITS TO PARIS
BUDAPEST, Hungary, 10.— The
following semi-official statement has
been issued: ....
A move is on foot against sending ex
hibits to the Paris exposition in 1900. Many
Intending exhibitors have withdrawn their
notices of participation, on the 'ground
that the present state of things in France
renders it unsafe to send exhibits. Th,o
Cathedral Chaptre of Gran; capital of the
country of the Bane name on the Dan
ube, and the residence of the Catholic
primate of Hungary, have. canceled their
decision to send exhibits, giving as a rea
son its unwillingness. to endanger works
of art worth millions of francs.
PROPOSALS MADE TO
BOYCOTT EXPOSITION
ROME. Sept. 10.— Proposals h;iv<
been made to both Austria and Ttaly
to boycott the Paris Exposition as a
protest against the verdict at Ke-nnes.
Demonstrations In denunciation of
the verdict occurred to-day In sev
eral Italian cities. At Naples the dem
onstrators tried to attack the French
consulate, and the police were com
pelled to intervene.

Dr. Cyrus K. Teed, of;Koresh .heiiven
fame, delivered a lecture at 102 O'Farrell
street last night on the "Origin ' and
Destiny of the Anglo-Saxon Race." lie
maintained that, by a process of racial
Infiltration, which has been in progress
for hui.'dreds of years, all civilization

FIERCE BATTLE BETWEEN

* inhabitant Lewis Johnson, whose vocation is that of Merman and |
I chicken farmer. Yesterday Samuel Short a resident of this place paid *
<•• Johnson a visit with the intention of buying some chickens. The two J
* men were standing watching the antics of a number of sea lions on a *
t reef where their rookery is situated, when they became aware that S
% something unusual was going on. The sea lions began to bellow and |
* all dived into the water except one huge fellow, who stood his ground |
* and appeared to be watching something. In a moment the cau «f "'^ *
% alarm became manifest, when two large panters, which had swum from |
% the mainland, crawled upon the reef and made for the sea lion *
* They pounced upon the big fellow, and a struggle Immediately en- |
% sued that made the two human witnesses of the battle gaze with bated *
i breath. The fight progressed for nearly thirty minutes, during which the |
% edge of the reef was lined with crimson foam by the blood flowing from 2
J the three combatants. Finally one of the panthers succeeded in tearing *
t a flipper off the sea lion, when, with a horse bellow of anger the wounded *
* bull grasped one of the panthers by the. throat and dragged it into the *
% water The sea lion was about to drown the panther, and would have §
* succeeded if he had not become weakened from loss of blood. As he re- *
t leased his adversary Lewis, who had . previously been too fascinated to v

% panthers as they made another attack upon the sea lion. The other *
* panther sprang into the water and swam for the mainland at the crack |
t of the gun, while the sea lion struggled out toward the ocean to die.
X Where the battle occurred a hole was torn in the soft mud broad *
* and deep enough in which to bury a horse. The flipper of the sea lion *
* and the panther skin are now in the possession of Lewis. The skin Is <&
§ badly torn about the head. Both men assert that twice the sea lion sue- ,|
* ceeded in striking a panther with his tail, knocking it ten feet away. *

ADMIRAL DEWEY
HOMEWARD BOUND
Cruiser Oiympia Leaves
Gibraltar.
GIBRALTAR, Sept 10.— The United
States cruiser Olympia with Admiral
Dewey aboard sailed this afternoon for
New York.
(ALL HEADQUARTERS, WELLING
TON HOTEL. WASHINGTON. Sept. 10.—
Admiral Dewey's <!• parture from Gibral
tar to-day is earlier than officials had ex
pected. Their latest information concern
ing the Olympia's Itinerary indicated that
she would not sail from Gibraltar much
before the middle of the present week,
but It is supposed the time of leaving the
British port lias been expedited In order
that the vessel may certainly arrive at
New York upon the date spt by the re
cepti vi committee and assented to by the
Admiral.
Admiral Dewey will decide for himself
what route he will follow in crossing the
Atlantic. No advices on this point have
been received by the department. It is
believed, however, that tne Olympia will
follow the great circle route, stopping at
the Azores for coal. Officials who know
the Admiral say New York should not
expect him before September 28, the date
b< ; aa thai anon which the Olympia
should arrive tßSre.
It is presumed that the Olympia will
spend a couple of days at the Azores and
loiter on her route, so as to use up the
eighteen daya remaining of the Admiral's
homeward voyage.
Rear Admiral Sampson with the North
Atlantic Squadron will sail from Phila
delphia this week for New York, where
he will e,,mi>l< to the arrangements for
Admiral Dewey's reception.
GENERAL MERCIER
BURNED IN EFFIGY
NEW YORK. Sept. 10.— Indign.ftion
over the reconviction of Dreyfus mani
fested Itself to-day in many ways. Gen
eral Mercler was burned in effigy in
Eldridge street; there was a big pro
test meeting of Jews in the Thalia
Theater; many preachers referred' to
the trial in their sermons, and prepar
ations were made for an appeal to
Washington.
In the burning of the effigy there
wan no organized attempt to rouse the
public opinion. Several young men
made the effigy of straw, soaked with
kerosene. A mask with a big mus
tache and a cap completed the fig
ure. The effigy was fastened to two
upright, poles with wire. On the breast
were placards, reading : "General
Mercier," 'French Justice," and "Hon
est Witness."
■' The meeting nt the Thalia Theater
was impressive in its earnestness. The
house was crowded to the doors, al
though admission was charged. Sev
eral times the police had to clear the
lobby after the sale of tickets was
stopped.
Invitations were sent to-day to lead
ing citizens and clerarymen, irrespec
tive of race and. religion, to take part
in a great Dreyfus protest meeting,
which will be held this week in
Cooper 1 Union. : ' * _

head by the treacherous Spaniards, just
outside the walls of old Manila, even
while the flap of truce was floating in the
breeze from the parapet. He was borne
to the rear by his comrades and every
thing possible done for him, but he died
the following day without having recov
ered consciousness.
Private John Hlnke of Company II and
Al Hammerson of Company B were killed
by the same treacherous volley that laid
poor Dunmore low.

Newspapers of the Southern Coun

Absorption by the United

Special Dispatch to The Call.
MEXICO CITY, Sept. 10.— Private ad
vices received from Brazil show that the
Government* here has been greatly In
fluenced by the accounts regarding the
alleged secret understanding between the
Holiviun and the United States Govern
ments by which the latter power was to
take over the territory on the upper
Amazon claimed by Bolivia, a region rich
in rubber. It is alleged In Rio de Janeiro
that American naval officers have recon
noitered and roughly surveyed the re
gion and sent their secret reports to
Washington. It is first charged that Mr.
Bryan, United States Minister to Brazil,
was a party to the agreement with Bo
livia, but it is now said that the Bolivian
secret agent, named Uthoff, made the
agreement with the United States Consul
at Para. There is some doubt about this,
but such is the belief of the Brazilian
newspapers and people, and the Argen
tine press has begun, instigated by Euro
pean residents, to set up the cry that the
colossus of the north is moving south
ward and intends to control and ulti
mately annex all South America, and so
diligent has been the propaganda of this
story that the newspapers in Mexico of
the clerical stripe have taken it up edi
torially, predicting the absorption of all
this hemisphere by the greedy and land
hungry Americans, who are acquiring j
lands in Brazil and Peru, and who will
BOon be able to afford the Washington j
Government a pretext for attempting to i
overthrow the South American Govern
ments.
The Buenos Ayres Standard, controlled !
l# British subjects, asserts that Presi
dent Roea's visit to Brazil was to consult
with the President of that country with ;
a view to, mutual defense against the j
Yankees. There is no doubt that the
Spanish and European Governments gen
erally have given their organs in Latin-
America the hint to publish articles de
signed to embitter South and Central
America against the United States and j
Its people and break up the growing senti- \
ment in favor of Pan-Americanism, which !
l.s greatly dreaded by European commer- j
cial interests so strongly intrenched In
South America, where American inter- j
ests have few newspaper champions and j
defenders. It is shrewdly calculated that
by persistent newspaper attacks on the j
United States that the Americans can be
got into high disfavor, and that con
cessions will be refused them.
The journey of William McElroy Cur
tis, formerly of the Bureau of American |
Republics, to Peru and Bolivia is report
ed to be in the nature of a secret mission
for his Government. There is a profound- j
ly suspicious sentiment developing In
Latin-American circles regarding the de- I
signs of the United States, whose power j
is dreaded and whose administration is i
accused of cherishing imperialistic pro
jects on this continent. Ihe remarkable j
unanimity of the Mexican clerical sheets i
and the "South American journals of all
Classes in dealing with this matter makes ;
it clear that it is a prearranged cam- j
paign with a' view to exciting ill-will
against the Americans of the great repub- j
lie of North America.
