OF HARTFORD, CONW
It was 0 o'clock last night when the
Annexation Commissioners adjourned,
having been in session for eight
hours during the day. The proceed
ings consisted of solid talking, but on
what subjects could not be learned.
The Commission met again at u
o'clock this morning. An hour later
Ilirni. the Japanese Consul Eleve,
was given a private audience of twen
At 10:20 the doors were thrown op
en to the general public, which con
sisted of about six persons, and, in
response to the request of Chnlrmnn
Culloni for any person to come for
ward who wished a hearing, G. B.
Swcger advanced to the foot of the
Commissioners' table and announced
thnt he appeared in behalf of one
Henry A. Jouen, and for the purpose
of making an argument in support ot
a memorial addressed by him to the
Commission in Jouen's behnlf and fil
ed several days ago. The nnture of
the memorial, which was not read
this morning, appears from the argu
Mr. Sweger, who by the way, says
he formerly practiced law in Illinois,
and has known Senator Cullom for
many years, said:
The memorial winch the Commis
sion has in its possession presents the
evidence upon which II. A. Jouen now
claims damages from the Hawaiian
government for illegal imprisonment
and forcible expatriation during the
year 1895, after the so-called revolu
tionary troubles, immediately niter
Jouen's expntrntion by order of the
government, his brother laid his case
before Albert S. Willis, then Minister
to Hawaii from the United States,
claiming damages as an American cit
izen for illegal imprisonment and ex
pulsion from the country. Minister
Willis ndvfted against forwarding the
ease to Washington and finally ignor
ed it. Mr. Jouen's brother, however,
sent the claim to the State Depart
ment against the advice of Minister
Willis and some time nfterwnrd re
ceived a notification to the effect that
his proper remedy was to exhaust the
resources of the local courts before
appealing to the State Department.
The Washington authorities were evi
dently not aware that the executive
and advisory councils hud prepared
for such an emergency by passing a
law prohibiting the courts from hear
ing claims against the government
arising out of the revolutionary troub
les of 1805." '
"Save by permission of the Legisla
ture," interposed President Dole.
Ion are correct, continued Mr.
Sweger, "and of course Jouen could
never get the permission of the Leg
islature. The facts of Mr. Jouen's na
tionality are well established. He Is
a native of the United States and had
exercised the prerogatives of a citizen
of the United States for eight years
previous to 1894, when he was grant
ed letters of denization by this gov-
eminent. These letters (reading them)
expressly state that the person to
whom they are granted does not for
feit his previous citizenship. Jouen
has never been other than an Ameri
can citizen, de jure and de facto, and
no questions have ever been raised as
to his qualifications in any way. Min
ister Willis should have referred this
man's claim to Washington, but ns he
did not, I am here to request that this
Commission will take such action as
will result in the claim being investi
gated by the State Department."
Senator' Cullom said: "This Com
mission is not passing on claims of
this sort. However, we will see what
can be done."
No other person being present who
had anything to offer, the Commis
sion then resumed its executive ses
sion. Harry Jouen, whose claim was
brought before tho Commission this
morning, wns in the employ of Mar
shal Hitchcock as a detective, but he
was suspected of being implicated in
the revolution. He was accordingly
arrested, imprisoned for some time,
nnd finally deported.
I desire to inform thp public that
I have arranged accommodations for
them at Remond Grove.

BISHOP & CO. ABOUT TO ENTER
Will Establish n Separate Department
of Their Business Adopt Postal
Savings Bank Regulations.
Bishop & Co. intend to resume the
savings bank business. With the 1st
of next October the linn will open a
savings department. The business of
this department will be kept separate
and distinct from that, of the commer
cial and general banking business.
The securities nnd funds will be
kept separate. In short it is to be a
separate department' with every pro
vision for security thrown around it.
Tlie rules nnd regulations of the
Postal Savings Bank will be adopted
as far as practicable, and interest will
be allowed at the rate of four and n
half per cent.
The establishment of this branch
of the banking business has been in
contemplation for some time, ana
preparations are so far advanced that
announcement of it is now made. With
annexation it is a question whether
the Postal Savings department of the
government will be continued. If It
is not the need of private savings
banks will be felt at once. If It Is
continued, the natural growth of Hon
olulu, it is thought, will warrant the
establishment of another institution
for the same purpose.
NO SIGNS OF THE MILITARY.
Bungalow, Bnrracks and Executive
If it is the intention of the United
States military authorities to take
possession of the Bungalow, barracks,
drill shed and b'nsement- of the Exe
cutive building, there is no present
indication of it, although there was
a report, about the latter building thnt
one company was to be moved into
basement and two into the old bar
racks during the day. Tills report
could not be traced to its fo.untnin
hcad. Minister Cooper had not even
henrd of it. He had received an ac
knowledgment of the receipt of his
communication to General Merrlam,
but beyond that knew nothing as to
what was contemplated. This after
noon all the buildings were deserted,
save for the watchmen whom Minis
ter King keeps on duty.
THE BAR MEETING.
Attorney General Smith has called
a meeting of the members of the bar
to be held at his oilice tomorrow af
ternoon at I! o'clock. He said the
meeting was to get an expression of
opinion on the form of the judiciary
preferred for these Islands in future,
for presentation to the Commission.

CHURCH AT KALAUPAPA.
Father Wendelln is building a new
Catholic church at Kalaupapa. It is
to be 94 feet long by 38 feet wide and
will have large seating capacity. U
will cost about $3,000. Nearly all the
necessary funds have been raised by
subscription, much of them in Europe.
The present chapel has become ao
smnll to meet the needs of the Cat'.io
lic worshippers at the settlement.
A NOTABLE LUAU.
Princess Kaiulani will give a luau

a very brilliant affair. The generals
and their staffs, Admiral Miller and
staff, nnd army and navy officers
present in Honolulu are asked to meet
the distinguished guests, besides a
number of our society people.

READING AND WRITING ROOM
FOR THE SOLDI EUS.
Catholic Ladies Have Erected a Build-
ing on St. Augustine Chapel
Grounds for the Boys in Blue.
Under the patronage of the Catholic
Ladies' Society a reading, writing and
recreation room for the use ol the
5oldiei's at Camp MeKInley and Camp
Utis has been established near the
park. A structure 45 by !22 feet has
been erected on the grounds of St.
Augustine chapel, just niaukn of 'he
Wnikiki road at the end of tin- tram
way line. The structure has corru
gated Iron roof, but the sides are en
closed with cocoanut leaves to give it
a distinctive and typical Hawaiian ap
pearance. In the structure the cur
rent newspapers and magazines and
other reading matter are provided, as
well ns writing material of all kinds
for the use of the soldiers.
It is the Intention of the Indies
having the matter in charge to serve
breakfasts to the boys in blue from
time to time and in every way to add
as much of the whalesouieness of
home life to the camp life as it is pos
sible to do. The preparations for
serving breakfast in this building
were not quite complete last Sunday,
but a number of the boys were enter
tained at breakfast after the morn
ing service in the chapel nt the-home
of Mrs. McDonnld.
St. Augustin chapel was erected
nearly thirty years ago, hut for many
years now, 'until the arrival of the
soldiers, it was not used for the ser
vice of the mass except occasionally.
Services for the soldiers were begun
u week ago last Sunday, which by a
pleasing coincidence was St. Augus
tine's day. Mass will be said every
Sunday morning at 8:30 o'clock while
the soldiers are in camp. The at
tendance was so large last Sunday
that the chapel was not large cnbugh
for the purpose and tin- new structure
The ladies intend to conduct the
work somewhat along the lines follow
ed by the Catholic Truth Society as
founded by Archbishop Riordan, at
Camp Merrltt and the Presidio, in San
Francisco. They have already nam
ed their building Camp Gulstan, in
honor of-Bishop Gulstan, of the Cath
olic mission here.

active in the work are Mrs. McDonald,

the Chinese gardeners in Manoa val
ley who suffered from Inst Sundny's
depredations. He called on General
Merriam in regnrd to the matter. He
expresses himself as highly pleased
with the result of the interview. He
laid the situation of tlie Chinese gnrd
eners before General Merriam, their
industry and their dependence on the
product of their gardens for n liveli
hood. General Merriam assnred him
that all damage done would be paid
for to the value of a pineapple. Con

Postmaster General Oat has estab
lished a tri-weekly service round the
Island of Kauai, which will lie a great
benefit to the people of that Island,
for formerly a weekly service was all
that could be depended upon, in spite
of the number of steamers visiting the
different parts of the Island. Another
advantageous change is a tri-weekly
service from Lniiniua to Wniluiui.
This will enable foreign mails to now
reach the center of Maul much more
quickly that formerly. Mr. Oat is to
be congratulated on his energy.
