Spanieling-'* Scheme to Organize
. Company of Capitalists in
the United States.
HONOLULU, Aug. 10., "via San
Francisco, Aug. 17.— A cable propo
sition of a definite character has
been made to the Hawaiian govern
ment by Col. Z. S. Spaulding, a
wealthy sugar planter who recently
returned from Europe. The offer
seems to be made in good faith, and
has been received with favor by
President Dole and his cabinet. The
matter will come up in the senate
on the 28th, and it is thought the
upper house will ratify a contract
for the construction of the cable.
The proposition is to build from
San Francisco, or in the near vicin
ity, to Honolulu, a branch line be
ing built to connect the other islands
of the group. Spaulding ■ wants
$50,003 a year for twenty years, the
government to have the right to
use both systems for the transmission
of official messages free of charge,
up to the sum mentioned per annum,
reckoning at the regular rates
charged. One clause of the contract
provides for the exclusive privilege
if landing cables on this territory for
the term of twenty years, such priv
ilege not to be construed, however,
as conflicting with any- right the
government of the United States
may possess by virtue of any exist
ing treaty. The promoter agrees to
have the cable in working order by
Oct. 31, 1898, if he is successful in
obtaining subsidies from both the
United States and Hawaii. The
United States congress will be asked
to appropriate $100,000 a year for
Col. Spaulding says: "The general
plan for carrying out the cable
scheme is the organization of an
American company to control and
manage the same in the United
States, and to organize a company in
Honolulu to control 'and manage the
inter-island lines. The United States
government will be asked to lend its
aid and a-sistance by means of a
subsidy or guarantee.and any assign
ment will be with the full approval
and sanction of the government. It
will be time to look to the other
governments for aid when the United
States shall have refused to take the
matter up, and this government shall
consult with such other govern
ments. I will, upon the signing of
the contract, deposit with the min
ister of finance $250,000 in Hawaiian
government bonds, to be held as
security that I shall construct such
cable according to contract, I being
allowed, say, eighteen months 'in
which to mature my plans and ascer
tain what assistance I can obtain
from the governments; the bonds
to be returned to me if within such
term I decline to proceed with the
enterprise, or if thereafter, by mut
ual agreement with the government,
the contract be either extended or
canceled. ;.'*■ . . .••.-yyy
"It is perhaps unnecessary to say
that no political or extraneous ques
tion entered into the project. The
amount of money required for the
construction and laying of the
different cables, with neces
sary connections and land lines,
repair shops, together with a
sufficient working capital to insure
efficient service, and provide for the
maintenance of the lines, is estimat
ed at over $4,000,000. As a business
proposition it is quite plain that
the work should be done and the
money raised in the cheapest mar
kets. But I am prepared to accept
offers from any of the world's gov
ernments, based upon conditions of
equality. The main point in view is
to establish cable communication be
tween Hawaii and the outer world,
upon favorable terms, with the least

al exercises of the morning session of
the Norwegian Lutheran Pastoral Con
ference were conducted by Rev. J A
Blilieg, of Fiandrau, N. D., and con
sisted of singing of a hymn, reading
of selections from the First Epistle of
Timothy, an address on the importance
of a pastor's work, and prayer. Con
sideration of the report of the com

MOOSE HERDS INCREASING.
Law in Minnesota Has Stopped
Their Wholesale Destruction.
DEER RIVER, Minn., Aug. 17.—
Moose have become numerous In the
northern part of this state since a law
was passed three years ago prohibit
ing the killing of this noble game for
a period of five years, and fixing the
penalty at $50 for each animal killed.
The moose was in danger of complete
extermination prior to the passage of
this close law, but now all is changed,
and the thinly settled regions of the
state, particularly the counties of St.
Louis and Itasca, are swarming with
the ungainly animals.
Many of th*m are killed every day
by settlers and Indians, but as this is
for food only, the game wardens, who
are constantly patroling the woods, do
not . interfere. The law was intended
to reach the hunters who killed simply
for the sake of killing and for the mag
nificently antlered heads, and it has
'been successful. As a result, the
moose have multiplied and became
tame beyond the most sanguine expec
tations, and when the close law ex
pires this region will be a veritable
paradise for the hunter.
The settlers in this lccaltiy are great
ly annoyed by the huge animals, who
deliberately come Into the clearings
and leave a trail of destruction behind
them as they pass through the gardens
and fields of growing grain. Deer are
also numerous here, and In some cases
settlers are suffering severely from
their depredations, as the animals al
ways destroy more than they eat. The
deer do not seem to be afraid of any
thing, unless it be a man with a gun,
and in the early morning and in the
"evening they come right up to the
house and poke around in the most in
quisitive manner imaginable.
PLANNING A STRIKE.
Minority of A. R. U. Nt St. Cloud
ST. CLOUD, Minn., Aug. 17.— There
is a. big split in the local branch of
the . A. R. U., owing to the refusal
of a majority to agree to a strike on.
the Great Northern road next month.
Trouble has been brewing for some
time. One grievance, and the prin
cipal one at this point, is the refusal
of the company to reinstate the three
dispatchers who were discharged sev
eral months ago. Their friends have
' been trying to work up a strike on
the ground that the men were fired
because of their affiliation with the
A. R. U. Those who are opposed to
the strike say that the men were dis
charged for the "good of the service."
Several of those who have opposed the
strike have been summarily voted
withdrawal cards. They are now talk
ing and telling all about a big strike,
which the other faction contemplates
on the Great Northern on Sept. 20.
Rogers, Phalen, Goodwin and Hogan,
of the general board of directors, are
expected in St. Cloud next week .to re-_"
organize the local branch. A plan is
said to be on foot to -spring an affili
ation of all branches of. train service.
Men here say that switchmen and car
shop men are leaving the A. • R. U.
and that it can never bring on another
strike on this system. _7;'7 i ;7."

Tyrannical Conduct of Officials,
Who Inspire the Anti-Chris
tians to Outrage,
VANCOUVER, B. C, Aug. 17.—
Among the passengers by the Em
press of Japan were Dr. Stevenson
and family, missionaries at Szechuan,
China, who narrowly escaped mur
der at the hands of natives in the
first of the recent riots. Dr. Steven
son belongs to a Canadian Metho
dist mission, and is now en route' to
his home in Milton, Ont., having had
to leave China owing to the ill health
of his wife, who was suffering from
the effects of the horrors. Dr. Ste
venson said that the Vicious official
system of the empire is responsible
for the persecution of missionaries.
Left to themselves, the people of
Szechuan were peaceable and well
disposed toward them. The better
class of Chinese are quick to appre
ciate their superiority in many re
spects — in medicine, for example—
and Dr. Stevenson had his hands
full attending to his numerous pa
tients among all classes. The vice
roy of this province may be regarded
as a typical specimen of his class, or
a little worse, if anything. Receiv
ing merely a nominal salary from
headquarters, he made up the defi
ciency from the pockets of the peo
ple, with such good results that in
a few years he amassed no less than
$50,000,000. He even allowed his ;
rapacity to get the better of his
discretion, and behaved so tyran
nically that his own countrymen
grew disgusted. The popular clamor
was so great that the central gov
ernment was forced to recognize it,
and last year the viceroy was dis
graced. But he could not be re
moved until a successor was ap
pointed, a process involving consid
erable delay in China."
OUTRAGES* BEGIN. - y .
Seeing himself on the brink of
political annihilation, he thought to
regain favor and make an enviable
reputation by turning the ■ mission- '
aries from the country. It was after
wards learned, moreover, that he had ;
secret instructions to that effect. All
kinds of outrageous stories about i
the missionaries were circulated j
among the people for the purpose of - j
securing their co-operation. The i
missionaries had built a hospital in
Cheng Tv, now destroyed, at con
siderable cost, and Dr. Stevenson
was one of the doctors employed.:
On the 28th of May a placard was
posted declaring that foreigners
fried children for the oil in them. A
request was made that these placards
should be torn down, and a few were,
though several persons objected. ;
"Dr. Kilbom," the doctor contin
ued, "was just filling Mrs. Jackson's
teeth, and I was doing some work
about the dispensary, when we heard
some children yelling and throwing
stones. This was about 4:30.. We
sent our cards at once to nearly all
the yamens. They were received,
except one sent to the Tsong Pao
Kiachii, a Hunan man, who followed
up his refusal with a vicious procla
mation. This man had been cured',
of an ulcer in the leg of twenty
years' standing by Dr. Kanright a
short time before. The crowd at
tacked the Canadian mission and
broke in the doors. Dr. Kilborn had.'
a double-barreled gun, and I had a
Martini rifle. When we appeared on
the scene the crowd disappeared in
a hurry from the gate and left the
opposite mud- wall clear. We fired
three shots down into them and then
ran right out into the street. We held
the crowd at bay until the cahirmen
arrived, who promised to keep the
street clear, adding that the officials
would soon appear.
ATTACKED AT THE REAR.
"Good liars, but bad police, they
soon allowed the people to come right
into the gate. Again we cleared the
street. In a little while our' wives
wanted to see us. They had picked
up the babies in their night clothes
and ran to the hospital through the
dividing wall, and we soon heard
crowds beating at the hospital gates
on the back street. Dr. Kilborn blew
a big hole through the top panel of
the gate and frightened the crowd
back. We now went into our dis
pensary and tried to lock ourselves
in, but we soon heard the roar and
crash of glass and panels on the
dwelling side. We made several vain
attempts to escape into an adjacent
lot. "We fully expected death, but
in a short time a man I cured of
opium-smoking found us and told us
we must leave at once. He had found
a hole in the hospital gate,, made by
a stone from a rioter. One of my
twin babies was taken by a woman'
servant of Dr. Kilborn, the other by
the opium patient. My wife ; held on
to the little baby, and I 'held' the
rifle. We all ran to the gates. There
was just room for one to get through
the hole. I was one.of the last to
get, out,, and, pointing my rifle at a
man who was yelling 'tax sze' (strike
dead), he shut up at once, as there
were only a dozen or so by the hos
pital gate. I was forced to resort
to. this ; expedient several T times:
While we were running out -in the

• J; TERRIFYING DAYS.
' i "Next day the party made their way
.to the China inland mission house.
; From there they watched the destruc
tion of the two old houses of the Can
i adian Methodist mission.' The people
on : the street promised them protec
tion, but a mob collected. - The party,
however, got away in chairs to the
• yamen. The" place was barricaded,
7 but the mob broke in, and Dr. and
Mrs. Kilborn, Mr. and Mrs. Hartwell,
the children and Misses Breckbill and
Ford escaped by ladders over the back I
wall. They entered a small house and !
bribed the owners for thirty taels to
conceal them inside the bed curtains.
For three hours they waited in terror, I
while the work of destruction" was j
going on about them. At night they ;
succeeded in getting away. . The same
condition of affairs prevailed at the
Episcopal and Roman Catholic mis
sions. In all eleven places were looted
and the inhabitants barely .escaped
with their lives. The Roman Catholic
mission was next to the viceroy's ya
men, and could easily have been saved,
but ah appeal for " help was refused
more than once. That night saw thir
ty-one foreigners, men, women . and
children, French and British, in , the
yamen, homeless, their houses leveled
or burned, with scarcely a whole tile
left. A wire was sent oft" to the King
Chlng- consul, but when the viceroy
heard of it he ordered the operator
to fetch it back, but it was too late,
and the news got through to Pekin.
The district magistrate , took care of
refugees and treated them as well as
he j could. .By the fourth day the
Tsung Li yamen, at Pekin had made
the viceroy act, and a stiff proclama
tion was issued. Eleven days after
the riot all. the British and American
missionaries, except Mr. Jackson, left
by boat for Chung King, the magis
trate sending two or three officials
and six small boat loads of soldiers
as: an escort. 7.y'.7
"Similar scenes were enacted at other
places, missionary property being des
troyed. ; At Kia Ting, on Tuesday,
June 4, during the triennial examina
tion, the thrfe houses of the Canadian
mission, American Bible Missionary
union and Canadian inland mission
were looted and partly damaged; also
the Roman Catholic mission. Rev. V.
C. .Hart and Dr. M. Hare, Canadian
misland missionaries, had a boat in
readiness. Mr. and Mrs. Viking had
left for a change to Suifu on the 3rd,
leaving Mr. Birie in charge at the
American Bible mission. He was
roughly . handled, but got away in a
boat, with Mrs. Birie'and Miss Bridge
water. 7 Next day Mr. and Mrs. Squire
and their little boy arrived at Kia
Ting in : a boat. They sent a servant
ashore to see if the streets were quiet
and the boatmen ordered them off also.
They refused and . were attacked by
the boatmen, one of whom was armed
with a knife. One boatman caught
Mrs. Squire, but Mr. Squire pulled her
away and managed to get ashore.
Shoeless, they made their way up the
river bank to the native custom house,
but they would hot allow, them to take
i refuge there. One or two attempts to
escape were foiled, so they determined
to face the streets and try to reach" the
yameh, 7or die together. Thus, going
along and praying - aloud, they saw
three old women they knew, who took
them in and sheltered them until the
middle of the night, cooking some food"
for! them. About midnight they reach
ed the yameh, minus all belongings ex
cept the clothes on . them, and thus
joined Mr. and Mrs. Birie and Miss
Bridgewater. 7 ,' ' •

the returns from the county conven

dorsement of ex-Gov.James E.Camp
bell for the nomination for governor
at the Democratic state convention
next week, a correspondent called
on him at his house in Hamilton.
He stated most emphatically that
he could not, and would not,, accept
the nomination if it was tendered
him unanimously. He said candidly
that his - only reason for declining
was his present financial condition,
which was such as to make it im
possible for him to devote his time
to politics. Meanwhile the fact is
published that his friends have se
cured a large supply of lithograph
literature for him, and badges, and
mean to nominate him. They "say
they will see that all his expenses
are borne. Since Congressman Sorg
has withdrawn it is understood that
ex-Gov. Campbell favors the nom
ination of Col . James Kilbourne, of
Columbus, who is a candidate of the
silver men. The Mahoning delega
tion today announced that they
would present the name of John H.
Clark. The Hamilton county dele
gation, which includes Cincinnati,
today voted to present the name of
Judge Hiram D. Peck. It -.is' said
that John Thomas is a candidate
for senator against Brice, and is not

counties selecting free silver delegates
today were: Lake, Lawrence, Seneca,

j The delegates from Auglaize, Dela

CLEVELAND, 0., Aug. 17.-The
Democratic county convention to se
lect delegates to the state convention
! to be held next Tuesday and Wednes
day at Springfield, was called to order
at 10 o'clock this morning. After a hot
fight Alfred Whlttaker was elected !
chairman over James Lawrence, by a
vote- of 227V 2 to IS9*-,.. The selection of
Whlttaker as chairman was a decided
victory for the free silver and anti
- Brice faction. A motion by a free
silver delegate to appoint a committee
of seven to select delegates ,: to the
! state convention caused a row that for
a time . threatened to result 7in more
I than -a war of words. It ended in a
number of the gold arid Brice men,

LONDON, Aug. 17.-William E. Har
rity, chairman of the Democratic Na
tional committee, sails for New York
shortly, after having done England
Ireland and Paris. He is much im
proved in health, and takes a sanguine
view of Democratic politics. In con
versation with a reporter of the As
sociated Press he said:
"With the great work the Demo
cratic administration is doing- for sound
money, good times are returning and
will continue to improve, for which
the Democrats will get credit. The
next Republican house is sure to en
counter complications. I really do not
believe Mr. Cleveland would take a
third term. There is no pronounced
candidate for the presidency among the
Democrats, not because the chances of
his election are not good, but because
it is too early for candidates to ap
pear, k William C. Whitney is the most
talked of. I see he says he is not a
candidate. Mr. Whitney is human and
he would make a splendid candidate.
My best information is that the Demo
crats are going .to get together and
carry New York next November. That
will encourage the Democrats of other
states We shall therefore go into the
campaign full of enthusiasm. With
the return of good times, the free
coinage agitation will die out, and
good times means a Democratic vic
tory in 189 G."

Special to the Globe.
CHICAGO, Aug. Another sen
sational chapter in the Northern Pa
cific receivership case was opened
in a decision by the United States
court of appeals. This is the court
of final jurisdiction. The opinion
was prepared by Judge Caldwell and
assented to by Judges Sanborn and
Thayer. Referring to the original
appointment of Northern Pacific re
ceivers by Judge Jenkins the opinion
says: It is obvious that if an indi
vidual or private business corpora
tion has conveyed its property to
another for the same purpose and
upon the same trusts and that the
court Was asked to take this prop
erty, and did take, the law would
have stamped the conveyance as one
made to hinder and delay creditors,
and fraudulent and void for that
Under any circumstances this
would be strong language. When
used by the count of highest juris
diction in the United States it will
undoubtedly be made a basis by the
Ives interest in the Northern Pacific
suit to have the appointment of the
receivers vacated. 'The decision will
be of immense importance to Judge
Pettit in the case he is now pushing
against the Northern Pacific in Se
attle. The language of the court
was used in the decision of a suit
brought originally by Charles Scott
against the Northern Pacific. On
this suit he recovered judgment for
$3,115.50. Satisfaction of these judg
ments was resisted on the ground
that the road was in the hands of
receivers, and Scott's judgment was
thrown out by the lower Dakota
court on this ground. " -y<7 77 r '
MOUNTED POLICE MAY MUTINY,
Might Better Be Slaves Than Stay
In the Service.
' WINNIPEG, Man:," Aug. 17.-A mes
sage from . Fort - Osborne, where j are
stationed mounted police for this dis
trict, says that the men are on the edge
of a munity, and that since last Sun
day night thirteen have deserted. .The
trouble has been growing for several
weeks, ever since the soldiers were or
dered to spend Sunday in cleaning up,
instead of being allowed to rest, as
they are at other stations. Three years
ago trouble somewhat similar arose
at these barracks, and some of the men
openly revolted. Searching parties are
now out after the men who deserted
recently, and those who remain at the
fort are so restless and ugly that trou
ble is feared. The men claim that they
are being unfairly treated by their su
perior officers, and that a man might
as well be a slave as stay there.
