Hawaiiwants taurts,and hercommercial bodMm re tskh4Ue.wteps to screteat It Ispropsed toopen headquarters inono-, iulv, Ja Ba Francisco and In Los Angeles, Cal., and to carry en an efergetle -ea pin throughout the country to bring the: attractions at the Islands to the attention of the traveling pulIc. With this end i 4iw all sorts of advertisW= scheme- are being censidered, and it is Mely that a good deal will be -done in the nsU few months to attract toidwta The desire fbr tourists Is one of Hawalrs reasons for opposition to the idea of -a us tional leprosaria, as set forth in the Mitchell Senate commhion's report. If the leper settlement is made a national one, Hawall, will inevitably get the name of a "leper cuntry." The universal dread of leprosy, Is such that a reputation of this sort wouli keep people away from the islands. Tha. average person does not know. that there are thirty miles of ocean between Honolulu; and the Island on which the leper settle ment Ia located, and that there are thou sands of residents of Honolulu who have never seen a leper In their lives and never will. The average person has In his mind a picture of the 1-tands all bunched tcgether and all the same, and If the mational leper settlement is in Hawaii the islands will naturally be'a leper country. Years ago Hawaii had a tourist trade that was quite large. Then there was the, monarchy and its court to attract visitors6 and it was an interesting little monarchy. The court was easily approachable and- the brilliant scenes ,it supported naturally at tracted the slphtseer. The stops of travel ers in a city 'mean lively business, for no traveler fails to spend some money in any. city in which he stops. Hawaii has almost' wholly lost this trade. It began falling off when the native government was finally su-' Perseded by an American government, and. It was forced to an utter stop- when the plague was reported in Honolulu and the, Hawaiian board of health began a rigid quarantine. Some tourists feared -the, plague, but all of them feared the quaran tine, for It was impossible for several mo4ths to leave the country without sub Witting to Vine days'- confnement under medical supervision. and taking an injec tion of the Haffklne prophylactic, which W, decidedely unpleasant In its .effecta The trade has never revived. Honolulu associations discussing the tour Ist business refer to the city of Los An geles. which has more summer visitors every year by a large margin than the 50.000 population of Honolulu. It is the intention to try to divert some of this travel to the Hawaiian Isla&ds, where there cer tainly are many strong attractions. T~E TELEPHONE CO?RO1SR, Objections Are Baised to It on Behaf of the People. To the Editor of The Evening Star. I have yet to meet a citizen who has not denounced with.bitternes the arrangement by which the telephone company's extor tion, in consideration of the sum of $10,000 paid to certain attorneys, is to become per petual. Who has authority to compromise with extortion? If the new rate proposed by the telephone company is odly a fair -and just one to the company, then it were goss 1y immoral "to 'favor a 30 rate. if the $10 rate is a just rate then it is grossly Immoral and unjust,to *the public to favor a higher rate. The immorality and Injustice of fa vring a hizhpr r-ito t1-n 11 b-Ms.hP more unconscionable when the higher rate is favored for a consideration. - Ai tnis poihL en;aeient 6ecomes a com modity.

The attorveys for the Telephone Subscrib era' Association do not represent one-third of the telephone users -of this Distriet. They do not represent any of that large class that has waited so long for a reasonable tele phone rate before putting In a 'phone -' -n the building where I have my.-law offce a number of offices have 'phones at t e rate of $36 a year, four en a wire. When this morning I asked the agent.for the com pany to put me-in a $36 'phone. he answered that they did not have any more 'phones at that price; that their lowest rate was $45 per year. and that the company was making no more contracts -at $36 per year. I wish to inquire of my learned, brother lawyers, Birney,' Woodward and' Hemphill. whether their long and profitable battle In the courts is responsible for 'this increase to the sub scriber. Or is this increase a method adopted by the telephone company to raise the forthcoming ten thousand-? On March .2, 1901, the att;orneys for the subscribers' association, speaking to the Court of Ap peals, used the folTowing language: "It Is affRrmatively established by the evi deRce that tyhese rates (the' rates that the telephone company and the attorneys- have agreed should be repealed) are much in ex cess of what is necessary to the paymnent o'f all expenses of maintaining and operating i.he plant and the return of fair 'or eye,n large dividends upon the value of the prop-' erty to those who hold its bonds and stocks." In the brief of the attorneys for the subscribers' association there are exhaus tive tables and exhausting arguments based upon the eleven hundred -pages of the print ed reord -showing -that the rates prescribed by Congress are eminently fair and much higher than the rates that telephone corn panies have voldntarily established In other cities like in size and conditions to the cEty of Washington. In Detroit any person may hav'e a 'modern, up-to-date telephone service for $24 per year, and the company Is makInii money. In small towns in Pennsylvania arnd Indiana and other states the rates are as low as $12 per year. The fight for the en forcement of- the law of 1898 should go on, along the same lines "if it takes -all suzu mer." Some citizen who has lead in the: fight should call a mass meeting and op-i gane a fight before Congress against the repeal of the act of 1808. and in t'he courtsV for the enforcement of the law. 'Instead of subscribing for a telephone I will cheerfully' contribute.the cost of a 'phone toward push.! -ng another injunction. suit to require the! telephone monopoly to comply .with- the law.i, Iwould like to exnaine the credentials ofi ay man or set of men who- claim the uights' to agree with the telephone company as to what rate they should charge the people of. this District -for a, telepoqe'- service.

To the Editor of The Evening Star: In reply to the communication from "Genealogist" In Monday's Star, I would be glad to correct his errors in' tracing the lineal descent of Col. William Washington, and would be pleased to hear from him relative to the same. The emigrant John Washingtah had two sons-John and Lau rence. Laurence being the grandfather of Gen. Geore Washington, much has been written0 o"hirm- Of his brother John, the line of Col.:WillIam Washington. but little has been said. Full mention, however, was made of this line When, in May last, the portrait of CoL William Washington, copied from the original oil painting In Independ ence Hall, was placed at Mount Vernon by his-:three 'great-nieces and three great grandnieces, with the note "that he was the son of Bailey, who was the son, of Henry, who was the son of John, the brother of Lanrence, the grandfather of Gen. George Washington.'" This statement was made from our family- records and wills, which we have back to the emigrant John and admit of no doubt --whatever. They are positively correct. We placed this portrait of the grand old hero, whom Amet, Icans will ever delight to tLonor,- at Moust Vernon, the home of his illustrious relative, Gen. George Washington, because-seeming ly so fitting a place, Virginia being his na tive state, and we stated his lineage on the back of that portrait because we knew it was indisputable. never dreamink it would become a target for questioners. RELATIVE. The Ex-Savem Peamima 8cheme. To the Eitor of The Even!g S. I see from the morning papers that there was a meeting held at Samaritan Hall on L street southwest to explain the ex-slave pension bill. I want to:.corect a mirake This meeting was held--st-4ie wrong place, it should have been bield' In the committee rodn at' the Capitol on pensions. It does seem uMair i to; us that white men behind this scheme should mislead the people who do nof understand the law governing pen sions mad bounty. 'Tis true we 4d an Invi tation to atteiid the nieeting, but as the meeting was to be held In South Washing ton s'3 af thq.. ciseis feel that it woulda-M bi afe t; attend the meeting. "BEt they would like to "meet'the parties -before the com"itteb in- the Senate., These ex slaves pension and bounty bills are sent ont broadcast by agents, and they read as if they had.l.ssed Congress..

Those In charge of the meeting collected money, and the people gave it freely-forty cents a hea& I got the floor to explain to the people thjkt they were being deceived. and I got in some dispute with the parties and had to get out a warrant and have them arrested for obtaining money under false pretenses.

Ave. HORSES EAT XOTASME Said to Be Fed to About 5,000 in Brooklyn. From the New York Tribune. Between four thousand and five thousand horses in. Brooklyn are being fed on mo lasses because it is cheaper and better than oats. This Interesting and surprising state ment was made by Dr. George H. Berns of the Berns Veterinary .,ospital in Adams street. Brooklyn. at his home, In 78th street near 2d avenue. Bay Ridge. last evening to a Tribune reporter. "We are using molasses as a food for horses very extensitely," said Dr. Berns, "not only In my own hospital. but in a number of stables under our care profes sionally. I find it a most nutritious and di gestible food for hardworking draught animals. I "Horses in harness from twelve to four teen hours a day do not take time to mas ticate and properly prepare dry oats and Gther dry fodder, and the result is that the most of It is expelled from the body with out having been digested or assimilated; therefore, they receive but little nutritive value from their food. Oats must be con verted into starch, and starch must be con verted Into glucose and sugar before they can possibly he digested and assimilated. As our animals, by reason of fatigue from overwork and excessive hunger, do not take time properly to masticate and salivate their food, it enters their stomachs in an indigestible condition and causes fermenta tion. gastric disturbances and colics very frequently. "Molasses, if property diluted and mixed with cut hay, bran and meal in proper pro portions,- is- in a digestible condition and ready for assimilation the moment it en ters the mouth. Its nutritive value is, there fore. quite a0parent. It Is not only a bet ter and a more- nutritious food than oats. but is much cheaper in the end. "I have been feedig on molasses about one hundred horses of Arbuckles sugar re finery for nearly two years past, and have been feeding horses in my hospital on mo lasses and have been .ontinuanly recom mending its ase.ln many -stables In Brook lyn during that period. The cost Is about 33 per cent less than the ald system of feed Dr. Berns added that the.proportions for an ordIfairy etpress wagon -horse, weighing 10 pounds, -were one quart of mouases and three quarts of water..mixed with two quarts of cornmeal, four quarts of bran and live pounds of cut har of ood quality. The cornmeal, the bran ead the hay were mixed, the molasses and water were mixed. and then the solids and -the liquids were mixed together. This mixture should be fed to the horse three times a day, if in doors, but if he Is out of doors during the day he should be fed oats in the middle of the day. The doctor maintained that not only was molasses 33 per cent cheaper than oats, but that it caused no digestive disturbances. and that horses fed on molamswould lay on flesh faster than wlen fed an oats. WOMEN AS OIL DIGGERS. OfBicials of a Development Company of Alabama. "We have in our state a corporation -en gaged In a large business of which I doubt not another like one can be found in the United States or in the whole business world," said George 7. Cochran of De catur, Ala., to a Star 'man- at the New Willard today. "Heretofore the news paper cartoonist has been wont to picture a corporation as a 'many heaed ootopus, with horrible claws stretehing out in every direetlon, but in this instance it would take a great painter to pict.ure the women on the board of directors of an. oil and development company, an organisation in gghich not a sing;e man can be fon among it.i officers or directors. '"This company was recently organized among women of wealth and high social position, The president Is the sister of the lord mayor of London, Sir Marcus Sam uels. The vice president is also a London wo mn,n while the seeretary and treaurer is well known as a brilliant writer and an enthusiastIc geologist. All the ladles in the company are wealthy' and all the American women are large land owners. The women have great faith i their un dertaking and expect to begin operations with the aid and direction of a skilled en gineer and oil expert..
