A CONSIGNMENT OF $3500 WORTH OF SMALL LOOK
. ING GLASSES AND 'BEADS FOR THE SAVAGES
, OF THESE ISLANDS TAKES A PROMINENT PART
IN THE EXPOSITION APPROPRIATION DEBATE.
A consignment of beads and small .looking glasses, t& amuse
' xhe'benightcd savagesohHawaii,- was accent acqtiijtiojinHo
nolulu, according to Representative Kiiudsen. The House this
morning took up the resolution to appropriate $40,000 for the St.
Louis Exposition and the Home Rulers opposed the resolution
as calling for too much, declaring that $3,500 had been enough
"The $3,500 for the Buffalo Exposition might as well have been
thrown away," said Knudsen. "Only the other day one of our (
largest local firms received from Germany a lot of beads and small
looking glasses for the savages of the Hawaiian Islands."
Kaniho objected to any appropriation at all, especially in view
of the thirty-five hundred dollar box of beads. He didn't want
any more beads sent here and if the $3,500 only brought forth a
lot of beads, $40,000 would probably be the same.
Kaniho also replied to an argument by Aylett to the effect that
members, themselves might send exhibits 'and win prizes, "There
is nothing to guarantee the winning of'prizes," said Kaniho, "and
nothing to guarantee that they will be turned over to the govern
ment, which pays the money." He also thought that if the Ter
ritory spent $40,000 Congress would think Hawaii didn't need
money, and stop allowances for the Hawaiian National Guard.
Harris' said that as a member of the Exposition committee, he
' knew tliat' thc amount was not Jarge .bnough. He referred to
large appropriations by other states anil territories, $1,000,000 by
the Philippines among them, and said that if Hawaii didn't make
a liberal exposition appropriation she wduld be the only one fail
ing to do so.
Keliinoi said he wanted to explain about the beads. "The $3,
500 exhibit went to Buffalo," He said, "and there was no building
for it. TtTwas stuck iri'a little corner of the United States build
ing. X"I 1o"oked for it for two days and couldn't find it and then
I went to the Hawaiian village, on which the sum of $150,000 was
, "The school exhibit received the highest praise from officials
and others who saw it, but the general public did not go hunting
for it. The $3,500 was well spent as far as it went. But hine-
tenths of the neople never knew that there was a Hawaiian cx-
' hibit except the Hawaiian village, because the school.exhibit had
no building."' ' "j ' ' ' ,.' : ' ,
Chillingworth moved the adoption of the report and passage of
the resolution, saying thaf great benefits to the Islands would be '
derived by a suitable .exhibit at St. Louis.
Paele thought that $40,000 was too much. "The last legisla
ture made an appropriation for the exposition at Buffalo," he
stated, 'md an exhibit was sent to Buitalo for the sum and re
Aylett replied that the $3,500 was only for an exhibit sent to
Buffalo by the Board of Education aiid that the $40,000 was
needed for all the Territory.
The report was adopted Home Rulers generally voting 110.

L. K: Kentwcll has surrendered his papers as a citizen of the
United States, and the case brought against him by District At
torney Breckons has been settled by such surrender of the papers.
Kentwell was sworn in as a citizen by Judge, Estec and it was
subsequently discovered that the statements on which the papers
were issued were not correct. Breckons brought an action to
revoke the papers, and Kentwell agreed to bring them into court
for cancellation. He is now in the position of a man- who has
formally renounced his allegiance to all other powers than th
United States, and is not a citizen of that country.

WASHINGTON, D. C, March 12. There is some danger
that the Panama Canal treaty will not be ratified, owing to de
mands' by some of the Senators that the United States be given
absolute sovereignty Ojver the canal. If amended to give the
United States sovereignty the treaty will be jeopardized, as Co
lombia will not ratify in that event.

WASHINGTON, D. C, March! 12. The Senate Committee

committee recommends that the treaty remain ineffectual until
ratified by the House, however. The last session amendments
are accepted, including the one relating to sugar duties.
Associated Press Cable to the Star.
SAN FRANCISCO, March 12. All raw sugar en route to
the California-Hawaiian Refinery at Crockett has been sold for
delivery to the Spreckels refinery. This is a result pi the closing
down of the California-Hawaiian Refinery. The deal is regarded
as a confirmation of the reports that the Crockett refinery has
passed into the hands of the ITavemeycr sugar, trust.
The situation as to Wray Taylor remains today the same as
was described in last night's Star, th Attorney General Lorrin
Andrews expecting that at any time -a cable message may come
announcing the arrest of Taylor. The Attorney General's De
partment is in touch with the police of several cities where Taylor
has been reported. A couple of days ago he is stated to have been
in New York. ' f
If a cable does not come- soon, it will be thought that Taylor
has taken a steamer from New York for England. So far as is
known, he is not aware that the police arc on his trail. If he is
on the Atlantic en route to Europe, he will in all probability be ,
met by detectives at the other end.
The theory of insanity in Taylor's case has some supporters
in view of his peculiar actions. He remained in San Francisco
quite openly and in touch with the government here for five
weeks after he left and in view of the smallness of the alleged em
bezzlement, as compared to the amount available if Taylor had
wanted to make a steal, it is the opinion of many that an ordinary
charge of embezzlement docs not fit the case.
So far, the reports of Taylor's being seen in Eastern cities are
cables from police of those cities, based upon the identifications
of persons who are strangers to Taylor. Attorney General An
drews sent out photographs some time ago, with accurate de

BUREAU OF. STATISTICS OF TREASURY DEPART
MENT SENDS OUT APPEAL OF OLD ROYAL HA
WAIIAN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY AS THAT OF
A RECENTLY APPOINTED COMMITTEE.
An extraordinary case of carelessness
In the Bureau of Statistics, Treasury
Department, at Washington, Is shown
In the case of a recent letter sent to
the press of the country regarding the
agriculture of the Hawaiian Islands
"for publication not earlier than Feb
ruary 22, 1903."
The circular letter sent to the news
papers of the country purports to be
the latest Information on the subject.
It speaks of "remarkable statements
recently made by a committee organ
ized In the Islands."
The stuff It contains Is more than half
a century old. The circular quoted In
the following treasury department let
ters of February, 1903, was adopted by
the first meeting of the Koyal Hawaii
an Agricultural Society, in June, 1S50,
and was published In the very first Is
sue of the magazine started by that so
ciety In 1850. Copies of the Journal are
in local libraries, containing word for
.word the statements, applied In 1830 to
the Statehood of California nnd the
struggles of the early sugar industry
and now In 1903, quoted. by the federal
Bureau of Statistics as the -Jirdduct c-t
a meeting "recently" held arid as ap
plying to conditions of the present, to
nnnexatlbn ami crfble communication.
The circular says:
"The benefits to the agricultural In
dustries of the Hawaiian Islands re
sulting from the closer relationship
with the United States which has come
through annexation are shown by some
remarkable statements recently made"
by a committee organized In thpse. Isl
ands In the Interest of Imnroved acrl-
cultural opfciatlons and especially dl-
versiflcatioji of agricultural products to
meet the demands of the United States
for tropfcal products of various kinds.
This comniltt'ee was appointed by a
public meeting recently held In the Hn,
wailan Islands, and in' Its address to
the people of the Islands, says:
" 'The importance and almost neces
sity of an Institution like the one con
templated Is too evident to require ex
position. For years past, the agricul
tural interests of these Islands have
been insignificant, and their pursuit un
profitable. With an uncertain and dis
tant market with little or no encour
agement, or facilities given to foreign
tillers of the soil, without proper
knowledge of the soli, or sufficient cap
ital to experiment upon Its capabilities
most of the agricultural enterprises
have languished or utterly failed. And
with the exception of a few sugar and
coffee plantations the proprietors of
which have invested too rnurh capital
to be able to abandon them without
heavy loss, and which were still struK
gllng on with doubtful prospects, the
whole amount uf agricultural opera
tions at these islands consisted In the
raising or fruit and vegetables for the
fleet of whaleshlps that semi-annually
touched here for supplies.
" 'Within the last two years, how
ever, a great and sudden change has
taken place In the prospects of this,
group. The extension of the territory
and government of the United States
to the borders of the Pacific the won
derful discoveries In California and the
consequent almost Instantaneous crea
tion of a mighty State on 'the western
front of the American Union,' has, as
It were, with the wand of a magician,
drawn this little group Into the very
focus of civilization and prosperity. Wo
find ourselves suddenly surrounded by
Intelligent, enterprising neighbors, who
call loudly to us to furnish of our
abundance and. receive in exchange of
theirs. Our coffee and sugar no longer
remain piled in our warehouses,' Our
fruits and vegetables no longer decay
on the spot where they were grown.
We are not even compelled to seek for
them a market, but clamorous pur
chasers come to our very doors and
carry off our 'supplies with an eager
ness that has caused us to feel a scar
city ourselves, and we are assured that
not only for all these, but for any oth
er products of the soil that we will
raise, a ready and increasing demand
may be relied on from our enterprising
neighbors. The native government too.
Impelled by the Irresistible influence:
nn'd example of the Anglo-Saxon ener
gy and progress, which It sees In every
direction is relaxing Its former tena
cious grasp on arable, lands of the Isl
ands, and even Inviting and encourag
ing their cultivation by foreign skill
and capital." "
