WASHINGTON PAPER ACCUSES
THE MAYOR OF INCITING TROU
BLE AGITATION IN FRISCO.
WASHINGTON, December 25. Yes
terday's mass meeting in San Francis
co at which resolutions wero adopted
denouncing the President's attitude In
the Japaneso affair was given consider
able space In all the Eastern pa'pers,
many of which commented editorially.
The Washington Star says of Schmitz'
"Mayor Schmitz of San Franclspo Is
charged with being a corrupt man.
That remains to be proved. But cer
tainly he Is a reckless and foolish one
If this . morning's newspapers quote
him correctly. If under Incitement by
him the mob of San Francisco should
move against the Japanese residents of
that town, the national authority would
make Itself felt very promptly. He
may understand this and be playing
for rehabilitation by changing tho Issue
for the moment from local graft to
Japanese Immigration. But the Japa
nese know their rights and wo know
them, and those rights are not at the
mercy of tho mob anywhere In this
country. The sworn official who en
courages the mob, or winks at Its per
formances, whether Its victims are citi
zens or aliens, is unworthy of his com
mission." One probable result of tho San Fran
cisco agitation will be that the Repre
sentatives from California will demand
a hearing before the House Committee
on Foreign Affairs on the Hayes bill
for Japanose exclusion. Hayes Is anx
ious to have his bill called up, and the
rest of the delegation Is behind him.
The chairman of the committee has
virtually promised the Callfornlans a
hearing, but It is possible that It will
not be reported to the House. The
Coast members are confronted with
the possibility of the Chinese exclu
sion bill being dragged out of the ob
scurity whore It Is-plgeonholed If they
Insist on pressing the Hayes bill, but
they can surely count on a lot of votes
tunlty to talk about the latter, and
they can solely count on a lot of votes
and more sympathy from (he Southern
members In case It comos to an Issue.
Regarding Secretary Metcalf, the Im
pression seems to be that he has, com
mitted political harl-karl.

hole In the ground." On the cdntrary
htg photograph, Fig. 7, represents a
'part of the suroundlng large crater rim
whose outer sides extend away nearly
nt a level, forming the broad Kalau-
papa peninsula. Thnt peninsula at the
base of the great northern precipice of
Molokal, appears to have been entirely
the product of the emissions of the
Kauhaku explosive vent-hole. This
Kauhaku pit Is a well with clean-cut
perpendicular sides, extending down to
creating that remarkable peninsula
It Is quite impossible for a foreign
observer making a hurried passage
among strange phenomena not to
form somo erroneous conclusions. Cap-
seems generally to have escaped. On
the whole this may be regarded as a
valuable contribution to the study of
Hawaiian Volcanoes. How far It helps
In the study of Lunar Volcanoes, only
a Lunar specialist can Judge.
An interesting statement appears
on pago 152, which must put an end
to our current boast of Hnlenkala being
the lrfrgest crater on our globe. "Three
craters are found upon tho earth mea-
surlng about fifteen miles In diameter.
They occur in Kamschatka, in Japan,
and In tho Philippines, but are all of
the explosive type. Tho largest on-
gulfmont crater Is Crater Lake, Oregon
