in Baltimore a few evenings ago.
The Lutherans -ef - Washington are much
interested In this order, and especially in a
question regarding the Admission of an
African princess. Nellie Zo Settlemoyer, as
a pupil into thei Lutheran Deaconesses'
Training School. The feirl is a daughter of
George Settlemoyer. chief of the Golahs, a
tribe on the west coast of Africa. When a
haby she came under the civilizing In
fluences of the Mecklenburg mission, a
Lutheran institution in Liberia, which at
that time was conducted by the late Rov.
Dr. Day. After a residence there of ten
years, she came to this country, and for six
years lived with' a missionary friend in
Worthlngton, Minn., receiving an English
education. The Lutheran deaconess board
si-me time ago refused the young woman's
application to enter the home of the 'order
to become a deaconess on the ground that
she had not reached an eligible age, but It
is now understood they will admit her as a
pupil to receive such training as will be
best calculated to fit her for mlsslonary
service In the dark continent.
THE LIMIT OF THE LAW
Slayer of John D. Marshall Given Sentence
of Ten Years.
Plea of Not Guilty Withdrawn and
Confession of Manslaughter Sub
stituted?The Court's Comment.
Frank Johnson, colored, accused of the
murder of John D. Marshall the 23d of
last August, today in Criminal Court No. 2
withdrew the plea of not guilty, heretofore
entered, and pleaded guilty of manslaugh
ter. This latter plea was accepted by the
district attorney, and thereupon Judge
Bradley Imposed the limit of the law, sen
tencing Johnson to serve ten years in
the New Jersey state prison at Trenton,
with labor. In addition, the law so re
quiring. a line was imposed, the court fix
ing the amount at $30.
The meeting between Johnson and Mar
shall that resulted In the death of the
latter was somewhat out of ihe ordinary,
and occurred, as stated, on the morning or
the 23d of last August, before daylight.
Marshall was a farmer and was on the
way to market. He had Just crossed the
Pennsylvania Avenue bridge and entered
the city with his horse and wagon, when,
according to a statement he made at Provi
dence Hospital, soon after the occurrence,
a voice called out from the darkness, "Give
me a match." Before Marshall had time
to reply, he declared, a revolver was dis
charged and a bullet entered his left leg
near the knee. The injured man was re
moved to the hospital mentioned w hen he
died unexpectedly several hours later. It
was developed by mea.ns of a post-mortom
examination thatj| the bullet had passed
up through the li^, aii(| lodged in the peri
toneum. I . jjj
Johnson had l^pn ,,arrested as a hus>
picious character,' aiyj( when searched at
the station house ^ loaded pistol was foui.a
in his possession^, l^v' was sentenced in
the Police Court,, to./a term in jail for
carrying conceal"^ \fteapons. The suspi
cions of a dcte<jtivnj,from headquarters,
who happened to0|je (ip court at the time,
were aroused by jthe fttct that Johnson an
swered the general dq^ription of the man
who shot Marshal}, aijfl by the further tact
that one chamber .trf tfie revolver found In
his possession v.'%s empty. Johnson was
taken to police headquarters, where later
he confessed tha4i he >hart done the shoot
ing, but pleaded )8elf-<jKfense.
' The case was sdt for trial last Monday,
but at jhe request of 'counsel for the de
fense it was (jonUnupd until today. Coun
sel rcrri&rked Monffay 'iksl that Johnson
was prepared tO'^llfcaW'Vullty? of man
slaughter. The reidy ofaDlstrict Attorney
Davis was that the proposition, being sub
mitted without warning, he was not pre
pared to act thereon without considering
the matter carefully.
During the past week District Attorney
Davis reviewed the case thoroughly. A
conference was also held with Judge Brad
ley. It was seen that the only evideuoe in
the possession of the district attorney of
what transpired at tt>? time of the shoot
ing was the statements made by Johnson
in his confession. They were to the effect
that an altercation occurred between John
son and Marshall: that Marshall kicked at
Pohnson, cursed him and struck hint over
the head with a whip. Johnson thereupon
shot Marshall in the leg.
The district attorney realized that he
could prove no motive for the killing be
yond passion resulting from an affray.
There was no robbery and no attempt at
After Johnson had pleaded guilty of
manslaughter today Assistant District At
torney Shillingtoji, in accepting the plea,
reviewed the facts in the case and the con
clusions of the district attorney. He ask
ed that the limit of the law be imposed.
Attorney I.everett F. Knglesby of coun
sel for '.he defense made an earnest plea
for .leniency, after which Judge Bradley
went over the case, remarking that John
son had absolutely no excuse for firing the
fatal shot, and adding that the prisoner
would unquestionably be guilty of murder
in the second degree if the law provided
for degrees of murder in this District.
The sentence as stated was then impos
ed, the court stating that the prisoner was
fortunate In escaping as easily as he did.
In addition to Mr. Englesby. Messrs.
Fountain Peyton and Joseph H. Stewart
were the attorneys for Johnson.

for the opening of active debate in Con
gress upon'the HikWaiiilll >niestion. Most of
US anticipate that the contest will be sharp.
While som6 dread it. others of us welcome
the prospect of having Hawaiian affairs
thoroughly discussed and ventilated con
spicuously before the American public. The
more the American people know about us
the better we feel sure that they will like
us. and I tie more clearly they will recog
nize our fitness to become a part of the
American- Union. On. then, with the com
bat. and the more strenuous the debate
abbtlt Us the better it will be for Hawaii.
Fitness lor CttftsemBhlp.
Perhaps the most prominent objection
urged by the opponents of annexation Is
the unfitness of our population to become;
citizens jf the Union. "Hawaii has so heter
ogeneous a population, three-fourths of
them Polynesians and Asiatics, that they
are incapable of self-government, and have
to be ruled by the white minority. How,
then, can they safely be endowed with the
democratic institutions and franchises of
America?" We reply. In the first place, that
the Asiatic two-fifths of the population un
der the American system would have no
vote. The Polynesian one-third, little more
than half the remainder, have sufficient in
telligence and habit of voting to be avail
ably useful for elections, as now un
der this rapublie. But our chief answer Is
that our white population is one of high
character and ability, and strongly Ameri
canized. It forms a powerful nucleus, oil
which will crystallize politically and social
ly the large immigration of Americans
which will rapidly follow annexation. There
can be no difficulty whatever in establish
ing American institutions here In complete
ness and with speed?for they already exist.
More thar half the time our American vis
itors entirely forget that they are not still
in their own country.
Without annexation, we are liable to the
greatest difficulties. Instead of the expect
ed American immigration, fresh hordes of
Asiatics will pour in upon us, and may
scon insist upon the right of suffrage. This
danger is an imminent one which annexa
tion alone can avert. It is a true and mod
erate statement that the question must
very speedily be determined whether Ha
waii shall become American or Japanese,
and whether the civilization of the Occident
shall rule here, or the seml-clvtlization of
the orient. The American system of life
has been nobly established here, and de
mands to be perpetuated as a brirht beacon
of intelligence and liberty, illuminating the
Pacific. Shall it be quenched under Asiatic
fog? Twenty years of annexation will fill
Hawaii with probably two hundred thous
and enterprising and intelligent Americans.
The Proponed Protectorate.
The plan of a protectorate for Ha
waii does not seem to make a favorable
impression upon any one here. The details
of the scheme have not been learned; but
it does not appear how any useful or effi
cient arrangement could be made which
would not entail upon the United States as
much trouble and expense in affording pro
tection as would be incurred by annexing
us. In fact, the same expense would be
incurred in defending Pear) Harbcr alone,
as that station could be made secure only
by defending Honolulu from occupation by
an enemy. There seems practically no alter
native between your either annexing the
group or abandoning Pearl Harbor. A pro
tectorate is a half and half measure. In
volving endless complications with li:e <Mher
strong powers which are scvon to dewlop
active competition for the possession and
control of the Pacific ocean. America's
only sure and safe course is to plant hei
foot firmly down upon this central
strategic point. KAMKHAMKHA.

trs for the purpose of inducing them <?
see. if they possibly <ran. that the sub
contractors are reimbursed for material
furnished by them to the n*sp?ft1vfc f-ontr.np
tors to whom were awarded lh?. ctuitra ^
for building the schools.
The contractors, contended Mr. Wilsrm,
submitted proposals n( figures much Iow0>/
than they could afford to do the work for
and the consequence was, he asserted, tha-i
the subcontractors ha\o not Wen full>
compensated for the materials the> lur"
nlshed The claims of the subcontractor:
said Mr. Wilson, amount in round mini
bers to $15.<NK?, and while perhaps the Dis
trict is under no legal obligation to H :u
burse them, he held that. In a moral > ?ii-.m
the District, huvlng received the lieneHt
at the materials furnished, should do c.
Commissioner Hiack having called hif
attention to the fact that subcontractor*
are not recognized by the District un
der the contracts, Mr. Wilson said that
nevertheless the District should In all fair
ness arid equity do what It could to set
that they are reimbursed, especially a?
the materials were furnished at at*>Ot
The Commissioners explained to the at
torney that to do so in the present in
stance. no matter how worthy the claims
of the men might be, would, in their opin
ion, establish a very had precedent. Cap
tain Black called attention to what he
termed was a duty on the part of the sub
contractors to see that they would be
protected before furnishing materials. He
said the trouble Is that the Commissioner*
are forced by the existing law to award
contracts to the lowest responsible bid
der, notwithstanding the fact that It may
be fully apparent to them that the imount
of the bid is far below the price for which
the work could be done. The consequence
has been, he stated, that the District has
not only lost money and experienced great
trouble and annoyance, but inferior 1 ulid
lngs have also resulted.
Mr. Wilson admitted that subcontractor*
are not be recognised, according to the
terms of the contract, hut he colled at
tention to the fact that the law docs n?t
allow a mechanic's Hen to be filed against
a municipal building, and claimed that for
that very reason the District should do
what It could to see that the subcontrac
tors are reimbursed. The Commissioners
refused to interfere in the matter, how
ever, but recommended that he apply to
Congress for relief. They declined to say,
however, whether they would or would not
recommend favorable Action. should a bill
proposing to grant the relief asked be re
ferred to them, although they stated they
would see that Congress was fully in
formed in the matter.
