Bicycle Policeman John Schuesaler of the Wtut Sixty-eighth street station, whose post extends from Eighty-sixth street to 121th street on tho Boulevard, and who is the champion bicyclist on the force, was riding leisurely along the Boule vard ln tho vicinity of 118th street at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon on the scout for scorchers when he saw something that made him do some scorching himself. Ho was coming down on tha west sldo of the Boulevard. A young woman ln -a gray bloomer costume was riding uptown on the east side. She was going at an ordinary rate when a good sized brlndlo bull terrier dashed out from the sidewalk and ran at her. The young woman screamed and was apparently so frightened that she could not spurt. The bull terrier fastened his teeth in her clothing at the knee and was draggod along for soma distance by the young woman, who kept pedalling despite her fright. Tbe terrier lost his hold two or three times, but Jumped up again as fast as ho was shaken off, and getting a fresh grip snarled and growled as his teeth tore, tho Ught material of the young woman's costume Schuessler raced up at top speed, and when he got within a few feet of the young woman he dismounted and ran at the terrier. As soon aa ha got off his wheel the terrier turned on him and grabbed him at the riabt ankle, tearing his stocking. Scbnessler shook tho beast free, but he Jumped back and fastenod hlB teeth ln the policeman's leg. biting it almost to tho bono. Bchuessler whipped out hlsrerolveraud shot the terrier plump between the eyes, Jdlllnc.it in atantly." As the terrier roEed over Bchuessler ran to tbe assistance of tha yonng woman, who had dismounted and was leaning ud against her bicycle in a hysterical condition. lie suc ceeded ln reassuring her, and ln a few moments she rode off with n white face. Schucssler's leg waa badly lacerated, and he was so perturbed that he forgot to get the young vt Oman's name or address. When she rodo off safely he mounted his bicy cle and went to SU Luke's Hospital, where his wounds were dressed and cauterised by Dr. Scheg. Tho doctor advlsod him to go home ln a cab, as ho feared that any extra exertion might reopen the wounds. Schuessler lives at 151 West 101st street, and be waa taken there as the doctor advised. He thinks tho terrier was mad, as its eyes seemed to pop out ot its head and its laws were covered with foam. Schuessler will be laid up for a week.

PrrrsBCBO, April 29. The annual dinner of the Amerlcus Club was held here to-night under difficulties. Tho Amerlcus Club Is the biggest Republican club ln western Pennsylvania and its dinners are of national Interest, because- It always numbers among its guests some of the heavy guns ln tho nation.

This yenr tho big banquet hall of tbe Monongahela House was engaged, and among tho guests wero United Statos Senators Mark Hannn, Billy Mason of Illinois, and George L, Wellington of Maryland, besides half a hundred other distinguished politicians.

It Looked at Plrst a Though tbe Japanese In Hawaii Wonld Try to Take Hatter Into Their Own Hand everybody Think That Annexation I Coming Very aeon. Honolulu, April 22. The arrival of the Phil adelphia and the news from Japan of the popu lar rage over the return of the Japanese Immi grants hare combined to mako things lively hero. Tha Japanese natl vo press is calling upon tho Government to send a war fleet to Honolulu. At the lnstancoof Count Ohuma, the navy has doclded to send a warship to Hawaii with tha doublo view ot pacifying Japanese residents and demonstrating Japan's determination to tho Hawaiian republlo that her subjects must bo treated fairly. Tho Japanese Foreign Office has instructed tho Board of Emigration at Kobe to stop the do parturo of emigrants for tho islands at present, The greatest indignation Is expressed over tho rofuBal of the Hawaiian Government to land Jupaneso emigrants who camo hero on tho steamship Bblnshu Maru. Two of tho influ ential nowspapers tn Yokohama advise that tha Shinshu Maru be sent back to Honolulu with all tho rejected passongcrs ln company with sev eral warships, and that a dimand be mado upon tho Hawaiian Government to permit thp emi grants to land. Should tho demand be refused, they say, Minister Shlmamura should bo in structed to open strong negotiations. It also suggest that tho Japanese Government should demand compensation from Hawaii. Tho Kokvmin Is of tbe opinion that the re fusal of the Hawaiian authorities to permit the Shinshu Maru emigrants to land is merely tho first step toward tho affiliation ot the Islands with tlio United States. It further says em phatically that tho Japanese Government Is op posed to tho union, and it will send Its w arshlps to Honolulu to prevent union it possible. The CAutro says that a telegram has been re ceived by tho Japanese authorities to tho effect that England has sent on intimation to the United States Government that sho objocts to the proposed annexation ot the Islands. Not much stock Is takefl in this story here. Another re port says that tho United States Legation at Tokio Is carrying on voluminous telegraphlo correspondence with Washl ngton, and the opin ion Is expressed that tho Philadelphia matter has already caused a rumpus ln diplomatic circles. The cruiser Philadelphia arrived In port on the 17th Inst, from San Diego after a pleasant run of nine days. Her arrival caused much excite ment on the streets, as the report had been cur rent that her mission was to reseat tho ex-Queen on her throne. As days hare gone by and noth ing of Interest has occurred aooard the cruiser other than formal visits of the vtrlous dlplomatlo agents or tbo occasional court-martial of desert ers, the foolishness ot this report has become apparent. Admiral Beardslco and his officers are ns reti cent as they were while the ship was coaling at San Diego, but it has leaked out that the true mission of the Philadelphia Is to protect Ameri can citizens and their interests ln the islands ln case ot trouble with Japan. When Acting United States MlnlsterMUls sent word to the authorltlei at Washington concern ing the trouble over the Japanese Immigration question, things looked black here. Japanese Minister Shlmamura had admitted ln a new spa rer interview that be had requested his Govern ment to send a warship hero to protect Japancso Interests. The Japanese ot this city had held mass meetings and denounced the action of this Government ln refusing tholr fellow country men admission utidcr tho Immigration laws. They were bold and defiant, and It looked at that time as if tho Japanese ln tbe Islands might attempt to take matters into tbelr own hands without awaiting any action on the part ot their Government. Tho firm action of tha Hawaiian Government, however, not only ln refusing a permit to the Shinshu Maru immigrants to land, but subse quently ln turning bock from theso shores nearly 1,000 other Japanese who hod sought admission here, convinced tho local Japanese that tho Hawaiian Government was in earnest and knew exactly what It was about. Tho Philadelphia may, however, play an Im portant part ln the annexation of the islands, after all. Since the arrival of Attorney-General Smith from Washington, and tho encouraging advices received by tho steamer on which bo came. It is bcllored here that annexation Is an assured fact. The majority of people hero aro confidently expecting by the next steamer tho arrival of a futl-fledged American Minister, who will bo clothed with authority to annex tbo islands. A little side light was thrown upon this theory by a remark dropped by President Dole yester day, ln conversation with an officer of tho Na tional Guard. Tho officer was desirous of resigning his commission, and Mr. Dole, hear ing of It, urged him to remain. Tho olllrer re plied that he had seen enough sorrleo and would give way to youngor men. The President an swered: "Well. I will consider it a personal favor If you will remain until after annexation." " How long will that bo I" Inquired tho otllcer. " It's very closo at band," was tbo President's significant reply. Bo the officer decided to retain his commission. Ifonululu has had a narrow cseatio from a smallpox epidemic. Tho steamship lunal Maru. which nrrivod here on the Oth inst. from Kobo with C82 Japanese immigrants, reported that she had been twenty days out and had no sick ness on the passage. Desplto this report, Collector-General Castle decided to keep tho immi grants In quarantine on tho reef until ho had completed his examination. Four days after tbelr arrival six Immigrants were down with smallpox. As Minister of Foreign Affairs Cooper and Collector General Castle had been conducting tbo examination ln person, tber were compelled to go into quarantine for fourteen days, togothor with the clerks, police officers, and employees ot their departments, who had boon examining the immigrants. Aa Minister Cooper was also Act ing Attorney-General, his being Bhut off from intercourse with the world almost rrippled the littlo republic Tho Minister and collector General are still in quarantine, and will not Ih released for another week. Out of tbo 083 Immigrants brought by the lilnal Maru only 133 were found to have the necessary qualifications to land. The remainder Erero doporled on tha IHtli Inst, With thorn re urncd to Kobe ltjl Japaneso laborers whose ontracts had expired. As tho rejected Immi grants bad not yot comploted their quarantine period of eighteen days. Minister Shlmamura has been criticised for permitting contract luborers returning to Japan to go back ln the same Bteamcr. which means, practically, their cxposuro to disease. A serious riot occurred nt tho Llbiie planta tion, one of the largest sugar plantations on tho island of Maul, last week, resulting In tho death of ono Chinese and tbe serious injury ot n num ber of others. Tbe Chinese laborers assorted that they had been compolled to work overtime an houreai h day without additional pay, and, being unable to romo to an understanding with the Lunas, mode a concerted attack on tho Lunaa ono morning when thoy were lined up for the distribution of tools. Tbe Chinese numbered about 125 men, and they attacked tho Lunaa with knives and hatchets, seriously wounding two or three. The bookkeeper, after wounding two (ono mortally), hold thorn at bay until the arrival of a Sheriff's posse. Thn Chinese are very ugly, and threaten more trouble If they are not treated rightly. The Llhue plantation paid a dividend of 40 per cent, last year. Our Admiral Calls on President Dole. Sin Fiuncisco, April 29.

Tho Mayor lookod up and gruntod: "Well, what Is it you wnntl" Superintendent Constable slid Into tho chair by tho Mayor's sido and began whlsporing. Thirty soconds passed. Tho Mayor's beard lifted itself from his bosom. The Mayor grabbed a piece of papor and began tearing it nervously. His f aco got red. "Pz-vz-wr-wz-wz-wx," whispered the Super intendent. Then camo an explosion that sent tho white-wlngod dovo headlong out ot the w indow. "No! No. I won't talk to you about It," snortod tho Ma or, and his tone waa harsh and rasping. John Proctor Clarke and Presldont Wilson looked astonlshod. Tho reporter stopped twirl ing his poncll. ''No! nol no!" snorted tho Mayor again. "I won't talk to you. G'woy!" "Px-wz-wx-wz-wz-wz," whispered tho Super intendent, holding up his hands. " I tell you, I w on' t talk to you. Damn you, keep away from hero ! G'way !" "Oh," gasped tho Superintendent, and ha whispered on. "You aro tbe only Commissioner I have ap pointed who has insulted me, ond you have In sulted mc," popped out tho Mayor. Tbo Superintendent's taco grew palo. IIo whispered on. " Keen away from here, I toll you," growled tho Muj or. " Keep away I Hereafter, if you've got any business with this ofllce, communicate in writing, God damn you, keep away from berel" " Pz-wz-wz-wr-wz-w z," whispered tho Super intendent, whiter still, and ho Jiggled his knees up nnd dow n nnd held up his hands. "Oh, if I had the power I'd remove you to morrow," said tho Mayor, and he grubbed two more pieces ot panel and ripped them savagely. He didn't look at the Superintendent. "I tell yru to keep away from here!" ho criod ngnln. "Nol Not I won't talk to you and don't want to benr anything. I say if I had the power I'd removo you to-morrow. Keep away from thin ofllce. Dam n-a-t-l-o-nl" Here hl Honor torn up more paper. "Dam nation!" he growled again. Superin tendent Constable gasped. He stopped whisper ing. Ho stood up und vxsajed twice to speak. '1 ho words didn't come. He slid toward tho door and disappeared. His Honor slowly raised his head and winked nt John Proctor Clarke, nnd then he called out: Hello, Mr. Wilson, how- aro jahl Glad t' bco yah.

Thonowstbut violent swearing had been dono flow-about tho City Hall liko sixty, and the re porters caught Mr. Constable ln tho corridor before he had time to leavo tho building. He was trembling und unhappy. "What was It nil about!" they demanded. "What I" ho asked. "Tho row" demanded the reporter. "Will you mako a statement." "I don't talk; I work," said Mr. Constable. "I've got nothing to say. If there 1b anything to bo said, the Mayor will say it," and ho went uptown. l'cncc continued In tho Mayor's office until his Honor went home. When tho reporter up proichcd him ho said, "Ask Constable." " Have you a stenographlo report of your in terview I1' ho wus asked. " No," he said. "Did you tell him that ho was to communicate with you only by mail hereafter I" asked the reporters. Oh, he's dono that for three months now," was tho reply. Mr. Constublewas hunted up again. "Inover make statements," he said. Then he banded to tho reporters a fourteen page closely typewritten document beginning, 'Superintendent ot Buildings Stevenson Con stable said to-day." But t hero wasn't a word In It about tho visit to the Mayor. It was about tho Raines law which Corporation Counsel Scott had doclarod ltwasnouoot Mr. Constable's business to en force. Mr. Constable was nsked again what he had to Bay. Unsaid: "I'm going to leavo hero now and wulk up Broadway and go to tho various clubs of which t am a member. Everybody knows mc. Intttnd to my business and make no statements, Listen to me. I ulways como out nil right." Now, w hut tho row was all about Is a question. Soma of the Major's friends said that the May or's remark about having been Insulted by Mr. Constable referred to a Bpecch Mr. Constable made threo months ago, In which ho told how dltllcult It wuh for him to enforce tho law, and said ho bad even had to get after tho Mayor himself. Other friends of both Mr. Constable and the Minor said thut tho trouble waa tho npointmont of Julius Ma er as counsel to tbe Department of Buildings, 'Iho Ma) or was so vexed about that appointment thut ho wouldn't swear Mr. Mayer in, nnd Mr. Constable had to havo tho Job dono by u Supremo Court Justice. As to the Unities lnw business, Superintendent Constablo was advised by Mr. Mayer that tho amendments to the Liquor Tax Inw put no addeil dtit) on the Ilennrtmont of Htilldlntrs, nnd thut tho dellnltton of hotel ln tho amendments Is merely for tho purposes of tho tnx law, and Is not controlling on tho Building Department; but thut tho department might require that plana und spe Ideations for the alteration or erection of hotels In which liquor in to be sold should conform to tbo requirements ot the Raines law. This opinion wus submitted to Corporation Couneol Scott, who concurs In every particular except ns to tho last proposi tion. Ho says that tho Superintendent of Build ings need not consider the Ruiiius law ln any way, EXPLOSION IN A HOSPITAL. Doctor and Druggist Uadly Hurt Wero Uolllug Catgut in Alcohol.
