COMMENT OF ENCLISH PAPERS
Germany May Form Alliance
Senator Pettlgrew Overcome
While Making Vigorous
' LONDON, June 26. The Spectator
publishes a long leading article on Emperor
William's remarks, as recorded
by the Paris correspondent of the
Times on Monday last. The correspondent
reported a conversation affecting
to represent the views of the Emperor,
in the course of which, speaking of his
anxiety as to the future of Europe, he
said that he did not fear Chinese ambition
or the anarchists, but he did fear
the expansion of the great powers and
the intervention of the United States in
the affairs of the Old World.
The Spectator says: This is so important
that we would give much to
know precisely what is in the Kaiser's
brain. The Kaiser has displayed at
times singular gleams of insight. The
facts of the moment appear to justify
his enigmatic saying. The Americans
are exhibiting a tendency to depart
from their policy of seclusion and interfere
very strongly in the affairs of
the Old World.
Continuing, the Spectator instances
Venezuela, Samoa and Hawaii, adding:
And they are apparently going to Interfere
with Spain in the most peremptory
manner. If there Is any truth in
the account of the instructions given to
General Woodford, the United States
intends to immediately offer an ultimatum
to Spain by practically refusing
her permission to suppress a revolt
in her own dominion.
The last event seems to have very
badly impressed the Kaiser, and the
Emperor's remarks throughout dealt
with the perils which it was his object
to avert. Does he propose himself to
avert American intervention in the affairs
of the Old World? If he does.
President McKinley must be cautious
in his diplomacy, for the German and
Spanish fleets combined would be more
than a match for any fleet America
could produce without an effort which
would tax the resources of the Union,
not in money, but In ships and sailors.
The Union is irresistible only ashore,
and Cuba would be a poor reward for
a great and dangerous sea war.
It Is not certain that Germany has
not a motive for such an alliance, for
the United States, with Monroeism, Is
nearly as much in the way of the pow
ers desiring to expana as is ureat Britain.
Overcrowded Europe finds that the
foreign policy of the United States debars
it from colonizing South America
with surplus population. But the natural
place for Germans is in South
Brazil, and now that the Government
is in a position to direct the tide ot Immigrants
west we should not be surprised
to see the already powerful colony
suddenly and amazingly enlarged.

SENATOR PEfTlGltKW VFKI.ICTEU.
uddtnly ljt All ontrol or Ills
WASHINGTON, June 26. An abrupt
and startling halt in the tariff debate
occurred in the Senate at 2:30 o'clock
his afternoon, when. In the midst of
passionate speech, Senator Pettigrew
(Silver R.) of South Dakota was stricken
with paralysis ot the vocal chords.
which brought his vehement speech to
a close with a sentence half-uttered.
The Senator was not physically incapacitated,
except in the sudden loss
of the power of speech. Although he
took his scat unaided, his associates
felt that grave possibilities were involved
in such an attack. They were
qulcklyshis side, and he was ministered
to with as little confusion as possible.
Senator Pettigrew went into the
cloak room, and Senator Deboe, who is
a physician, made an examination.
Dr. Blaine was summoned to attend
Senator Pettigrew, who was removed to
his home, accompanied by Dr. Baine,
Senator Mantle and Sergeant-at-Arms
Bright. He walked to the carriage at
a sprightly gait, without assistance. He
said he was in no pain, but he talked
with great difficulty and very indistinctly.
Senator Pettigrew rallied rapidly,
and this evening chatted pleasantly
with his family and a few friends who
called at his home. He was still a little
weak from the effects of the attack,
but greatly Improved, and says he
feels quite well. There was no fever
or any unpleasant symptoms growing
out ot the attack. His physicians anticipate
no serious results.
Afl"rtlr Might Keconio Complicated
If VI lowed to Walt.
WASHINGTON, June 26. Senator
Harris of Kansas City said that today
Senator Morgan would call up on Monday
the resolution which he reported
favorably to the Senate yesterday, providing
for the foreclosure of the Government's
lien on the Union Pacific
Railroad. If there was opposition, as
he anticipated there would be, of
course, the resolution would have to
Both 'Senators Harris and Morgan
are anxious that some action shall be
taken on this resolution at the present
session, as matters might become very
complicated it the subject is allowed to
go over until the regular session and
the present plan of the Government,
regarding the disposition of this road,
The action of the Senate next Monday
will indicate whether there Is any
hope of doing anything in this matter
at the present session. "
Following Morgan's announcement of
his determination to call up the Union
Pacific resolution, Senator Allison, in
the Senate today, said he hoped the
Alabama Senator would take no action
tending to delay the pending tariff
bill, as it was desirable to get the tariff
bill into conference. He would,
therefore, feel compelled to resist taking
up any other business until the tariff
bill was disposed of. The resolution
then went to the calendar.
BOIES FORSAKES FREE COINAGE.
Letter From Iowa's Ex-Governor That
DES MOINES, Iowa, June 26.
Governor Boies, a candidate for t
Democratic nomination for President
last year, has practically renounced
free coinage at 16 to 1 in a letter of
5,000 words, written for the campaign
book of Col. D. M. Fox of this city. The
article was made public by Fox today,
although General Weaver and other
silver leaders objected, fearing Us effect
on the State campaign. The article
by Boies Is headed "The Curse of a
Monstrous Crime Is Upon Us."
He suggests that the Government accept
all silver bullion offered at Its
mints and for It issue paper representatives,
to be determined in silver and
gold at full market price.
Fox considers Boles' backsliding so
serious that he follows the article in
his book with an answer, in which he
says: "This can only mean that the
paper representative shall be redeemed
in bullion at its market value in gold,
which is the same thing as redeeming
it in gold. Is this not virtually a gold
Fox has had the letter for some time,
but until today refused to give It out
The knowledge of its contents spread
among the silver Republicans the day
before the convention last Wednesday
and had much to do with the defeat of
Boles for the gubernatorial nomination.

Lanf uaga - Text Not Yet
WASHINGTON, June 26. The Republican
tariffc managers are very
hopeful of being able to complete the
consideration of the tariff bill In the
$enate by next Wednesday night a
result which would bring the end In
the Senate within the present month.
They are led to this conclusion because
the Republicans have adjusted
most of their differences and see their
way clear to the settlement of others.
(The Democratic leaders do not concede
the possibility of so early a conclusion,
l'hey generally place it a week farther,
on or about the 7th or Sth of July, but
admit that the end may come by Saturday
of next week.
It is expected that the reciprocity
amendment will be ready for presentation
by next Tuesday. The present
indications are that it will make provision
for negotiating a reciprocity
treaty, but that there will be a require-
ment .that it shall be submitted to the
Senate. The necessity for subserving
the revenues will render It impossible
that provision should be made for the
free admission of dutiable articles under
reciprocal agreements, but a max
imum percentage ot remission will be
specified. .The rate ot remission most
favorably considered now is 20 per
There probably will be objection to
the retention of the House provision
for the continuance of the Hawaiian
reciprocity agreement on sugars, but
the Finance Committee will favor such
an arrangement, and the probabilities
are that the Republicans will support

LANSING, Mich., June 26. An echo
of the bitter fight which was waged in
the municipal election in Denver last
April was heard here tonight. Gertrude
M. Allen, who was an election judge In
the Second Precinct bf Denver's Third
Ward, was arrested in this city at the
instance of the Sheriff of Arapahoe
County and is held on a fugitive warrant
to await the arrival of officers who
will leave Dnver with requisition papers
Miss Allen is ordinance clerk in the
City Clerk's office at Denver. She is in
Michigan on a visit to her parents, her
father being Capt E. M. Allen of Portland,
a prominent citizen in bank and
Grand Army circles. She is charged
with neglect ot duty and forgery as an
election judge, It being claimed that she
certified that James N. Doyle, the Republican
candidate for Alderman, received
104 votes, although a recount
gave him only 77.
When apprised of the indictment.
Miss Allen Immediately telegraphed
her willingness to return voluntarily
to Denver and has signed a waiver to
extradition papers. She gave bail to
appear upon the arrival of the Denver
officer, and Insists that her unly connection
with the count was to keep
tally -while other judges read the
names from the ballots. As the two
tally sheets kept agreed she supposed
the counts to be correct and certified
to the return based upon them.

Obonrlty of Meaning.
. WASHINGTON, June 26. The reply
of the Secretary of State to the protest
of the Japanese Government
annexation of Hawaii has
been forwarded to the Japanese Legation
here and by it cabled to Toklo.
The Legation probably will file a
supplemental statement upon receiving
instructions from the home Government
It is expected that this will take
some time, as the note of the State
Department Is worded In a most careful
and diplomatic manner, and its meaning
is somewhat obscure as to the
points raised by the Japanese officials.

in 1S95. The rainy season, Intense
heat now prevailing all over the Island

prevented the advance of Weyler

it was necessary "to-crush the revolution
in a short time, at no matter what

WASHINGTON. June 17. About 1
o'clock this afternoon ex-Queen
nied a protest in the ofllco of tho
Secretary of State. It was delivered Into
the hands of Secretary John Sherman by
Joseph Heleluhe, representing the native
Ilawallans, duly commissioned by two of
their patriotic leagues. Mr. Heleluhe
was accompanied by Capt. Julius A.
Palmer, the American secretary of
Mr. Sherman treated the bearers most
courteously, but. gave no indication of
his action In the matter. The protest Is
"I. Lllluokalanl of Hawaii, by the will
of God named heir apparent on the 10tl
day of April, AT D. 1817, and by the Brace
of God Ciueen of tho Hawaiian Islands
on the 17th of January. A. D. 1S33, do
hereby protest against the ratification or
a certain treaty, which, I am so Informed,
has been signed at Washington
b Messrs. Hatch. Thurston and Kinney,
purporting to cede those Islands to the
territory and dominion of the United
States, I declare such treaty to bo an ast
of wrong toward the native and part
native people bf Hawaii, an Invaalon of
tho rights of the ruling chiefs. In violation
of International rights, both toward
my people and toward friendly nations
with whom they hae made treaties, the
perpetuation of the fraud whereby the
constitutional government was overthrown
and, finally, an act qt gross la-justice
"Because the omclal protests made by
me on the Kth day of January, 1SSB, to,
tho so-called Provisional Government
was signed by me and by said
Government with the assurance that the
case was referred to the United States of
America for arbitration. Because that
the protests and my communications to
the United Stales Government immedi
ately tnerearter exprely declare that I
yielded my authority to the forces of tha
United States in order to avoid bloodshed,
and because I recognized the futility ef a.
conflict with so formidable a power. Because
the President of the United States,
lh Secretary of State and an envoy
by them reported In offleJal
documents that my Government was unlawfully
coerced by the forces, diplomatic
and naval, of the United States, that I

magistrates of the United States
was olilclally communicated to me and
to Sanford U. Dole and said Dale's resignation
requested by Albert S. WHHs. the
recognized agent" and Minister of the
Government ot the United States.
Neither tho above-named commissioner
nor the Government which sends him
has ever received such authority from
the registered voters of Hawaii, but derives
its assumed powers from the so-called
committee of public safety, organized
on or about said 17th day of January.

largely of persons claiming American
citizenship, and not one single Hawaiian
was a member thereof or In any way
participated In the demonstration leading
to Its existence.

"President McKinley may call annexation
merely a continuance of existing relations,
but It is an undoubted departure
In the colonial sense. It dos not mtaa
that Cuba will follow or anything of that
kind, but It means ajitroag naval policy.
The United States will certainly be a.

and seaboard necessitate that, and
Hawaii will be of the greatest value: If. It
means naval expenditure nowj and It
may well repay It with compound interest
in the future."
