AftNWKM TO JAPAN.
CotirtrniK bill Firm Argument r
Secretary Shorman has answer
ed tho protest of Japan against i
the Hawaiian annexation treaty.)
Tho Secretary of State quotes au-.
thorities to show that the existing
treaties of a state cease upon its
incorporation iuto(auother state.
"itiis, the ,lat not the manner of
absorption that determines trea
ties." ne 8BV8. "It does not even
follow that the existing treaties of
the absorbing state extend to the
acquired territory." Secretary
Sherman then deabs with Japanese
interests in Hawaiian follows: j
"What the Hawaiian treaty of .
annexation proposes is the Pxten-
sion of the treaties of tho United .
States to the incorporated territory '
to replaoe the necessarily exting- '
uished Hawaiian treaties; in order
tnat jtae guarantees or. treaty
rights to all may be .unquestiona
ble ana continuous. To this end
the termination of the existing
treaties of Hawaii is . recited as a
condition i precedent. The treaty1
ot auneiatiuu dues nut abrogate
those instruments. It is the fact
of the Hawaiian ceasing to exist as
an independent contract that ex
tinguishes tboso contracts.
"As to the vested rights, if any
he established in favor of Japan
and of Japanese subjects in Ha
waii, tho case is different, and I
repoat that 'there is nothing in the
proposed treaty prejudicial to tho
rights of Japan.' Treaties are
terminable in a varioty of waytt;
that of 188G, between J,apau aud
Hawaii, to which your protest is
supposed to relate, is denounce
able by either party on six moutliB'
notice, but its extension would no
more extinguish vested rights,
previously acquired uuder its sti
pulatioDB,. than the repeal of a
municipal law affects rights of
property vested under its provi
"As to the point 'that tho main
tenance of the status quo of Ha
waii is essential to the good un
derstanding of tho powers whioh
have interests in tho Pacific,' it is
sufficient to remark that as a fact,
through three-quarters of a cen
tury, in which the constitution
and Government of Hawaii and
tho oommerco of tho island with
the world have undergone notable
changes, the one essential feature
of the status quo has been the
predominant and paramount in
fluence of the United States upon
the fortunes of tho group, and
that tho anion of that island ter
ritory to the United States, often
foreshadowed and at timeB taking
tangible shape, has been recog
nized as a necessary contingency,
drawing nearer year by year with
the passage of events.
"Four years ago, when a similar
project of annexation followed the
Hawaiian revolution, tho occasion
for maintaining tho status quo
was not even suggested by any
power having interests in tho
Pacific. This Government cannot
be expected to proclaim or admit
that any such occasion has ainco
arisen just as it can noithor in
tend nor admit that tho projected
morn perfect union of Hawaii to
the United States by whioh the
progressive policies and depen
dent associations of soma sovonty
years have destined culmination,
can injure any legitimate interests
of other powers in tho Pacific.
That it will tond to strengthen,
develop und perpetuate such com
monly beneficial interosts is, on
the contrary, to be oxpected.
"In thus reviowing tho protest
yon presout it gives mo ploasuro
to say that welcome its frank
and friendly spirit. So far as
you tako occasion to douy what
you aptly call 'tho mischievous
suggestion or report' that Japan
has designs against tho integrity
or sovereignty of Hawaii, I am
glad to assure you that such denial
was entirely unnecessary, inas
much as this Government has not
doubted, and cannot for an instant
doubt, tho sincerity and friendli
ness of Japan in all that concerns
her relations to the United States
and to the Hawaiian islands."

the stock woro in exceptionally
goud condition. In reply to a
member he ascribed tho absenco
of tuberculosis in tho herd to tho
tact that thore woro no imported

fuso would be sent to the fertiliz

' Dr. Wood said certainly if thoy
passed the, Baine examinations as

definition of osteopathy, ho said it
was nothing but scientific mas
sage. Its exponents usually pos
sessed a good knowledgo of ana
tomy but none of raedioiuo or
Burgery, and were utterly unable
to diacnose diseases. Osteopathy
was valuable in many oases when
performed under tho direotion of
a reputable physician. Ostoopaths
must either passed tho propor ex
aminations or confine thomsolves
to acting under regular physicians ""
the same as nurses.
A letter from J. F. HackfoltJ,
consul for Germany, stated that
his government hod requested him
to communicate with that of Ha
waii on the importance of tho
coming leprosy conferonco at Bor
lin aud requesting that a delegate
bo sent from this country. Tho
conference will last from tho 11th
to the lGth of October aud bo
presided over by Dr. Robert
Koch, the eminent bacteriologist.
In connection with this lettor
Presidont Smith read a long re
port from Dr. Alvarez on the
Carasquilla serum treatment for
leprosy, after whioh he addressed
the Board on the importation of
having a representative at thu Ber
lin conference. This representa
tive could visit Bogota iu tho
United States of Colombia on his
return from Berlin and investigate
the serum treatment and inquire
into the truth of the large number
of cures reported from it. The
country was now spending $7000
a month on tho Leper
Settlement and a very
Bmall, proportion of ono month's
outlay will pay the expenses of a
man to Borlin and Bogota, whioh
might bo tho moans of an im
monso saving in tho future. Au
othor pbaso of tho matter was that
the government having taken the
lepors under its care as wards of the
nation it was morally bound to
nogloot nothing whioh might
bonefit them. The coming Lepro
sy Conference was a chuueo of u
lifetime, thoro might never be
such a commingling of creat
minds on tho subject of leprosy,
and hu had come to the conclusion
that it was tho duty of tho Gov
ernment to send a representative.
Ho would suggest Dr. Alvaiez,
because of his familiarity with
leprosy and his recent expori
mouts thereon. Those expeii
monts could bo Buspouded until
his return and (ho mouey saved in
that way would about pay the ci
ponscB of tho trip.
No other uames boing suggest
ed, Dr. Alvarez waB asked if he
would mako tho trip tn Btnliu,.
roturning by way of Bogota, and
Lu buck by Duoombur 31, if his
salary was allowed to run on and
his legitimato expenses allowod.
Ho roplied thnt ho would, and
motion that tho Cabiuot ho askul
to send him prevailed. Dr. Al

ready to leave on Sentorubor 8.
