TO ANNEX HAWAII.
The Treaty Signed and Presented
to the Senate
With a Message from the President It May
or May Mot Receive Immediate Atten
tionBut Its Final Ratification Is AJ
most Assured Japan Fro tests.
Washington, June IB. In the great
diplomatic room of the state depart
ment, where four years and four months
ago, in the closing hours of the Harri
on administration, the first Hawaiian
-annexation treaty was signed, only to
be withdrawn from the senate and
thrown into a pigeon-hole, the repre
sentatives of the governments of the
United States and Hawaii gathered
this morning and signed a treaty,
; by the terms of which, if
ratified, the little island republic
will become part of the territory of the
United States. Of the persons who
fctood in the room three were present
when the original treaty was signed,
namely: Special Commissioner Lorrin
A. Thurston and Assistant Secretaries
Adee and Cridler. The first-named
perhaps took a more sincere personal
pleasure in the ceremony than any of
the others, because of the stirring
events of the last four years !n which
he was so directly concerned.
A VERY UNUSUAL OCCURRENCE.
It is a very unusual thing for a treaty
of such importance to be signed early
in the morning, but in this case it was
desired that the convention be made
res !y early in order that it might be
submitted to the senate on the
day of its signature. The docu
ment itself had been prepared
carefully over night; in fact, it
was practically completed at the close
of official hours yesterday, but it was
necessary to make a close comparison,
. and the president wished another op
portunity to go over the document,
probably with a view to drawing up a
message with which it will be accoin-
i panied to the senate. Therefore, be-
. fore niue o'clock the persons concerned
in the preparation of the treaty were
-at the state department.
SIONATUKES TO THE TREATY.
Vor the United States there were
"Secretary Sherman, Assistant Secre
taries Day, Adee and Cridler, 1'rivate
Secretary Uabcock and Assistant Pri
vate Secretary Gaylree. On the
Hawaiian side were Minister Hatch,
Lorriu A. Thurston and W. A. Kinney,
all for this particular occasion ac
credited as special commissioners duly
empowered to negotiate a treaty of an
nexation. After the formal greetings,
the credentialsof the plenipotentiaries
were scanned and recorded. Secretary
Sherman also represented the United
States in the signature of the conven
tion, and it was part of the ceremony
to record his authorization by the pres
ident just as much as it was the
credentials of the Hawaiians
from President Dole. Ttten came
the reading and comparison of the
treaty. Of this there were two drafts,
one to be held by each, later on to be
exi hanged in the usual form. Alto
gether it was 20 minutes after nine
o'clock when all was ready for the sig-r-n;:tuies.
The Hawaiian representa
tives had brought with them a gold
pen in a plain holder, and at their re
quest this was used for all of the signa
tures. SIUNED AND SEALED.
Secretary Sherman signed first the
copy intended to be held here, while
Minister Hatch signed first the Ha
waiian copy of the treaty, his fellow
cominissioners coming next in order,
Atr. Thurston first, followed by
Mr. Kinney. The treaties were
sealed by Assistant Secretary
Cridler with a private seal
carried on his watch chain, the copies
were handed to their respective custo
dians, and the treaty was made as far
as the executive branch of the govern
ment could effect it. There was a gen-
era! exchange of congratulations be-
tween the parties to the ceremony, and
after a photograph had been taken of
the commissioners the ceremony was
A. Protest from Japan.
'Washington, June 16. ISefore the
signature of the Hawaiian annexation
treaty the secretary of state. Mr. Sher
tnan, was presented a formal protest
ty the Japanese government, through
its legation here, against the consum
mation of the agreement. , The protest
:iu supposed to be based on appre-
tiension that the special treaties now
existing between Japan, and under
which the Japanese now enjoy advan-
tages, will be affected injuriously by
Minister Hoshi of Japan declined to
be seen about Japan's protest, and Sec-
retary Mutsu refused to discuss the
, matter in any way. but it is learaed
- that the Japanese protest was made in
. person to the state department by Min-
TliE HAWAIIANS SUilPKISF.l).
The news of the protest was a great
- surprise to the Hawaiian legation, and
as soon as intelligence of it was ob-
tained Minister Hatch started out to
' learn the particulars. The essential
, point as to the protest, it is said at the
Hawaiian legation, is. wiietiier tne
protest is against tne annexation of
. Hawaii, or is merely a protest reserv
i iag to Japan all her rights under the
. existing treaty with Hawaii. It is be
ilieved that it is the latter.
JAPAN'S TREATY" WITH HAWAII.
The Japanese treaty with Hawaii
was made in JS71, and provides that
natives or citizens of one country shall
!r.:vo the uninterrupted right to enter
into, reside and trade in the 'her
coi.ittty. and also .shall liavj n. the
. rights and privileges ei i ye.i iy the
people -f a:iy other onurry under
-treaty -.U,iil:itio.io with .lip-iii. Japan
-jii.le'r tiirt trjatv COOS' uaeuLlv haa a
perfect right to have her lmimgrantt
eater the Hawaiian islands.
SOME OF THE EFFECTS.
Under international law the annexa
tion of Hawaii to the United States
would abrogate this treaty. Moreover,
a new treaty between the United
States and Japan was made some time
ago, and to become effective in 1899,
provides that the United States may
exclude Japanese. If Hawaii U
annexed the effect will be to permit the
United States to exclude the Japanese
from Hawaii. It is taken for granted,
therefore, that the protest is one re
serving Japan's rights under its treaty
of 1S71 with Ha wait-
Sent to the Senate.
THERE IS OBJECTION.
Washington, June 17. The treaty
for the annexation of the Hawaiian
islands reached the senate chamber at
live o'clock yesterday. The senate at
once went into executive session, and,
as soon as the doors were closed, the
jnessaire of President McKinley, ac-
! rwimnmi vincr the tre:itv. and the treatv
itself, were read to the senate. They
were attentively listened to. In one
part of the chamber there was a group
of senators who will bitterly oppose
the ratification of the treaty. Among
them were Senators Gray, Mills, l'asco,
White, Caffery, Pettigrew and Mc
Euerny. As soon as the reading of the docu
ments was completed. Senator Davis,
chairman of the committee on foreign
relations, moved that the message and
the treaty be made public.
Senator Gray objected to a vote oa
the motion, and under the rules a
single objection carried the motion
over until to-day.
Senator Davis gave due notice that
at the next executive session he would
press the motion for publication, as
the essential facts and almost a ver
batim copy of the treaty had been pub
lished in the press of the country.
There was some discussion as to when
the treaty might be considered, ami
Senator White asked if it was the in
tention to push it at this session, and
upon the reply beiag made that it was
p.tssible, the California senator said:
"1 desire to announce that I am pre
pared to stay here all summer to pre
vent the ratification, which I consider
a very bad proposition."
'"I'll join you," said Senator Petti
grew, of South Dakota.
THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
The message of the president was
not a very long document. It dealt
with historical facts concerning the
island, and showed that the United
States and Hawaii yearly grow more
closely bound to each other. This was
not really annexation, he said, but a
continuation of existing relations with
closer bonds between people closely
related by blood and kindred ties.
j Since 1H-0. said the president, the pre-
tloinincnce of the United States had
been known. The sending of the first
envoy there brought the islands in
closer relations with the United States,
and those relations had grown more
firm by succeeding events. At th
time the tripartite agreement was
made for the government of Samoa, he
said Great ISritain and Germany wanted
to include Hawaii in the treaty under
which a protectorate was established,
but the suggestion was rejected by the
United States, because this government
held, there already existed relations
between Hawaii and the United States
which placed the islands under the
especial care of this country, and this
government could not allow any other
country to interfere in the affairs ol
"The annexation of the islands,"
said the president, "and making them
a part of the United States, was in ac
cordance with the established p.dic;
of this country."
The treaty proved to be a simple
document of six articles based in its
essential details upon the treaty nego
tiated by Hon. John W. Foster during
the administration of President Har
rison. The islands are ceded practi
cally without conditions, leaving the
United States to pursue its own course
with reference to their management.
The first article reads as follows:
The government of the Hawaiian islands
hereby cedes, from the date of the exchange ol
the ratifications of this treaty, absolutely and
without reserve, to the United States forever,
all rights of sovereignty of whatsoever kinJ in
and over the Hawaiian islands and their de
pendencies, renouncing in favor of the United
States every sovereign right of which as an in
dependent nation it is now posse-ispd. .And
henceforth said Hawaian islands shall become
and be an integral part of the territory of the
The Hawaiian government cedes tc
the United States the absolute owner
ship of all public lands, public build
ings, ports, harbors, fortifications,
military and naval equipments and all
other government property. It is
specifically provided, however, that
the existing land laws of the United
States shall not apply to the public
lands of Hawaii, but that special laws
shall be made from time to time for
their disposition, the proceeds of any
sales of these lands to be applied to
educational purposes in the islands.
The islands are for the present tc
constitute is. territory of the United j
Stales, their local laws remaining in j
force until new ones are enacted. A j
local legislature is provided for. but the
veto power is vested entirely in the
president of the Cnited States. A
commission of five persons, consisting
of three Americans and two Hawaiians,
to be nominated by the president and
confirmed bv the senate, is provided for
the purpose of formulating the modn
of goverrmcct for the islands.
The treaties of the United States
with other countries are substituted
for the treaties of Hawaii, with the
same case in the controlling interna
tional relations of the islands. Fur
ther immigration of Chinese laborers
to the islands is prohibit and the
laws restricting Chinese iuiuiigratioii
! to the United itcs are to be ma le to

THE GOOD QUEEN VIC.
Her Sixty Tears' Reign Appro
By City, United Kingdom and Empire
Simple and Impressive Tlianknglvlnj
Services In St. George's Chapel
and St. Paul's Cathedral.
London, June 2L, Queen Victoria
began the celebration of her jubilee to
day as befitted her entire career, before
the altar of her faith. ' Throughout
London, the United Kingdom and the
empire in every cathedral, church or
chapel of the established church of
England was held services similar to
those at St. George's chapel, Windsor,
where her majesty paid her devotions,
and offered solemn thanks to God.
The announcement that the services
at St. George's chapel would be pri
vate and for the members of the roj-al
family, prevented the gathering of a
large crowd. The scene was most im
pressive and the service most simple.
Her majesty sat in the chair of state
immediately before the communion
. rail, and just beside the brass plate
whose inscription designates the spot
which was the temporary place of in
terment of the prince consort.
The ladies and gentlemen, who are
the grand oilieers of the queen's house
hold entered first, followed by the
Military Knights of Windsor in t e full
costume of cocked hats and scarlet
The duke of Devonshire and Lord
Koseberry occupied their stalls as
knights of the garter. The rest of the
church was empty, the scats of the
royal family being near the queen's.
The dean of Windsor, wearing the in
signia of chaplain of the order of the
garter, officiated, assisted by the lord
bishop of Harry, and several canons.
Punctually at 11 o'clock, amid the
soft strains of an organ voluntary the
queen arrived from the cloisters at the
entrance. Assisted by her Indian at
tendant, she walked slowly to the
chair of state, the congregation stand
ing. She was dressed all in black, ex
cept for a white tuft in her bonnet.
Empress Frederick of Germany, at
tired in deep mourning, took the seat
at the right of the queen, while the
duke of Con naught, wearing his Wind
sor uniform, seated himself at her left.
The others grouped closely behind
and looked like a simple family of wor
shipers. Among them were the duchess
of Connaught. Prince Henry of Prus
sia aud Princess Henry. Prince Chris
tian and Princess Christian with their
children. Princess Henry of Uatten
berg. Grand Duke Scrgius and the
Ordinary morning praj-ers began
with a short exortation from First
Timothy, and the suffrages after the
creed contained these sentences:
Priest Oh Lord, save the queen.
Response Who puttcth her trust in
Priest Send her help from Thy
Response And evermore mightily
Priest Let her enemies have no ad
vantage over her;
Response Liet not tne wicked ap
proach to hurt her.
After the first collect, a special col
lect was read and instead of the usual
prayer for the queen and royal family,
two special prayers were substituted,
containing the following:
Almighty God. who ever rulest over all the
kings of the world and disposest of them ac
cording to Thy good pleasure. We yield Thee
unfeigned thanks for that Thou wast pleased to
place Thy servant our soverign lady. Queen
Victoria, upon the throns of this reaim. Let
Thy wisdom be her aid and let Thine arms
strengthen her; let justice, truth and holiness;
let peace and ltive flourish in her days. Direct
all her counsels and endeavors to Thy glory
and the welfare of her people: and give us
grace to obey her cheerfully. Let ber always
IKissess the hearts of her psaplij; let her reign
lie long and prosperous, and crown her with Im
mortality in the life to come."
A special prayer for unity was said,
and there were special psalms and gos
pels used instead of those for the day,
the Gospel being the sixteenth verse of
the twenty -second chapter of Mat
thews: Render, therefore, unto Caesar the things
which are Caesar's.
There was no sermon, but a special
hymn, written by . Kt. Rev. William
Walsham. lord bishop of Wakefield,
with music by Sir Arthur Sullivau, was
sung at her majesty's request. The
third verse was as follows:
O. royal heart, with wide embrace.
For all her children yearning?
O, happy realm, such mother grace.
With royal love returning.
Where England's Hag Hies wide unfurled.
All tyrant wrongs repelling:
God make the world a better world.
For man's brief earthly dwelling.
Itefore the benediction the following
. peciul thanksgiving was offered:
Lord, our Heavenly Father, we give Thee
hearly thanks for the many blessings which
l l.ou has best nvc 1 up n us during the &)
years of the h::ppy reign or our gracious Queen
Victoria W..-thank Thee for progress made

many ;;ifts be continue 1 to us arid our que-n.

The choir of St. George's chapel
rendered the musical portion of the
service. Sir Walter Parrett presidiug
at the organ. The service lasted 40
minutes, the queen remaining seated
throughout and following closely the
special prayers and hymn.
At the end there was a pause. The
queen with bowe l head, continued in
silent prayer. Then followed a touch-

memory of those

Foot Boys Killed at the Illinois Institu
tion for the Feeble Minded A Party of
Twenty-One Takes Shelter In an Old
Cow Barn, and the Structure Goes
Lincoln, I1L, June 18. At 8:45 p. m.,
following two days and one night of
intense heat, with the murcury rang
ing from 83 to 100 degrees, a terrible
storm passed over this city and county,
causing loss of life and property. The
grounds of the state institution for
feeble-mined children and the farm
connected therewith received the full
force of the storm. At the institution
the roofs of the north wing, the cus
todial building and the powerhouse
were partially blown off, and a dozen
huge walnut and elm trees were twist
ed and thrown around like straws in
an angry flood. The loss to the state
is heavy, but there was no loss of life.
At the farm, two miles south of the
institution, a large cow barn, con
structed in 1S94 at a cost of S3, 003. col
lapsed like an egg shell in the hand of
a strong man, catching 26 boys and two
men, killing four and severely injuring
The dead are:
Sylvester Baker, age 15.
James O'Brien, age 13.
Keal McKenzie, age 13.
Castle Le Baron, age 10.
All of Chicago, and pupils of the in
stitution. The injured are:
Jacob Wilmert, farm superintendent,
hurt about the head and believed to be
Lemuel Gleason, class attendant,
back and lower limbs injured.
Henry Berger, Willie Witbem and
Willie Fisher, pupils, severely, though
not dangerously, hurt.
At nice o'clock this morning William
Schellpepper, an attendant, was or
dered to leave the institution and take
21 boys to the farm to pick peas, but
declined, and tendered his resignation,
to which incident he probably owes
his life. A substitute was secured in
the person of Lemuel Gleason, who,
with the 21 boys, departed on what
they deemed an outing. They
left in high glee with baskets
packed with good things to eat,
performed their work on the
farm with cheerfulness, and at two
o'clock were given permission to go to
the creek near by and indulge in bath
ing. The storm came up suddenly, and,
by command of their attendant, the
crowd ran to the barn for shelter.
This was a huge structure, 174x29 feet,
containing 40 tons of hay. It was built
an a cheap plan, with box sills 2xS
inches. Xo sooner had they entered
the death trap than the wind struck it.
and the entire building fell in. There I
was a stampede, all escaping except
the four caught, who were instantly
killed when close to the doors.
Lemuel Gleason, attendant, who was
with the boys when the crash came,
saved several by his bravery and cool
ness. Oblivious of his own safety, he
rescued several, and was found on top
of a boy. pinioned down by timbers,
saving the boy, and receiving severe
injuries himself. The farm superin
tendent, Jacob Wilmert, left the barn
when struck by the storm, and was
struck down by flying timbers.
The storm came from the northwest
at a time when the mercury marked 94
degress. A great bank of clouds came
rolling and tossing like a huge sea bil
low, rising and falling as it swept
along, obscuring vision by a cloud ol
dust, and followed quickly by one oi
the hardest downfalls of rain of 2C
minutes' duration ever seen in this coun
ty. The storm appeared to be in twe,
sections, dividing a few miles west ol
the institution, in which are nearly
700 inmates, including officers and at
tendants. The division of the storm's
forces alone saved the institution from
complete destruction and a dreadful
loss of life and property. The officers
of the institution. Doctors Atherton and
Harnett, superintendent and assis
tant superintendent, and Chief Clerk
Whitlock were on the ground earlj
caring for the injured, looking up thos
that escaped and directing the removal
of the dead. The storm is reported tt
have been severe in the country, witt
