A NEW SISTER. The Rising Star of the Republic of Hawaii. An Outline of the Plan of Government. President Dole and His Asso ciates Succeed Themselves. Queen LU and the Royalists Have Not Yet Abandoned Hope of Help from the United States. By the Associated Press. HonolCld, May 15, (via San Fran cisco, May 21, per steamer Gaelic.) The constitutional convention, mem bers of which were elected on May 3, will meet on May 33. The new consti tution is drawn np by the present executive council and will be presented to the convention for its approval and such improvements as may be con sidered necessary. This constitution has been kept from the public and will not be made known until the conven tion meets. The Associated Press correspondent has been able to obtain a copy of por tions of it, however. The new govern ment is to be called the Republic of Hawaii. Executive power will be vested in a president and an executive council which will consist of five mem bers instead of four as at present, a minister of health and education being added. The upper house will consist of fifteen senators. Meetings of the legis lature are said to hold every two years. The president will have the power of veto which can be overrnled by a two thirds vote of both houses. It is the present intention to have President Dole re-appoinled for a term of years, probably six, after which the office will be filled by regular elections. It is more than likely also that the present ministers will be retained for a few years as their appointment rests with the president. The new constitu tion can be amended or revised in the ordinary way but it is expressly stipu lated that no amendment containing a pfoposition (or the establishment of a monarchical form of government shall be presented. The claim is now made that when a republic is declared the natives will make the long looked for uprising. The royalist leaders eay that they are only restrained by the express wish of the ex-queen who still has great faith in the oenited States. She is said to have asked many of her followers to register in order to avoid losing their positions. The report that the Banger was com ing here has again put hopes of a speedy restoration into royalist hearts. They say that Admiral Walker was sent here for the express purpose of assisting Liloukalani to the throne and that his supposed mission in regard to Pearl harbor is merely a blind to his real action.

" A warranty deed from John Philp and wife, Toronto, Canada, to William Stewart Philp of Phcenix, to e of so, block 26, Grand Avenue addition, and the s4 of block 16, same addition, was filed yesterday. The consideration is $3,C0O. Hon. Thomas Davis, who came in yesterday ftom Kenilworth, says that there is an early and bright prospect for Pinal county. There is an unusual activity in mining which joined to a feeling of prospsrity among farmers is bringing back the old feeling of confi dence. The Ladies' Aid society of Center street chnrcn will give an ice cream and strawberry festival next Thursday evening in the Gardiner block next door to Lund's drug stores. These ladies know how to get up a festival of this kind and they are sparing no pains in order to make it a success. Phcenix won some celebrity in the trial of Dr. Henry C. Meyer, the poisoner who was convicted last Friday in New York of murder in the second degree and sentenced to imprisonment for life. Though charged with a half dozen similar murders and suspected of as many more, Meyer was on trial for having pot one Ludwig Brandt to death by slow poison to obtain insurance on his life. Brandt was a confederate in several poisoning enterprises and in this case consented to become the victim al most to the point of death when a corpse was to be substituted. He was however "tooled" into the hereafter and VIeyer was arrested. The defense was that Brandt was still alive and one wit ness swore that he saw him in Phoenix, Ariz., a year ago. The city council met in txtra and prolonged session last night and trans acted a mountain of business. Bids for painting and repairing the hose carts and hook and ladder wagon were opened and the contract was awarded to John Q. White at $40. The street committee reported that it was unable to find Wm. T'vrrell, the mysterious and successful bidder for one of the sprinkling wagons and had appointed Geo. Patterson the next low est bidder. The contract with him was approved. The matter of the janitor was taken up. The job was divided between the former janitor, John Proops, who will have charge of the city hall and engine house at $50 a month and Robert Hud son, who will care for the city hall and Neahr plazas at $70 a month. The city printing was next disposed of. A resolution was offered making The Republican the official paper for the ensuing year. The resolution car ried with it the following rate: 50 cents per inch for each insertion, the job work at the commercial rate and the printing of the great register at the legal rate. The blanks for the office of the health department was awarded to the Herald. The matter of choosing a health offi cer was called up. Dr. Stroud had been nominated, but it was learned that he was ineligible for want of a legal residence. Dr. Helm was chosen. Chief Goodman of the fire depart ment, was on hand and stayed until he got what he wanted, permission to purchase needed supplies for the de partment. Incidentally he assisted the council to adjourn. A communication was received from Henry E. Kemp submitting a proposi tion to put in a system of pipes for conveying water in place of the un sightly and inconvenient irrigation ditches. The price guaranteed was $16,000. Arrangement was made with the street committee to confer with him concerning it. Chief Goodman recommended an extension of the fire limitB to coincide with the present city limits. The mat ter was referred to the ordinance com mittee after which the council ad- A coup d' etat had been arranged against the lawless inhabitants of the tenderloin district. The council pre pared to visit that ' locality in a body and ascertaia officially if the stories of outlawry there were true. The move ment was supposed to be so secretly planned that the objects of the attack might be found in a normal condition of cussedness. A traitor must have heralded the al dermanic descent, for no more quiet place existed in Arizona last night than that sinful precinct. The quietude was suspicious; doors of saloons were closed that were never known to be closed be fore. There were no rovstererB upon the streets and to the official eye the conduct of the sirens was as discreet as was that of Lucretia, who made good Collatinus' word that there was at least one virtuous woman in Rome. The council does not believe it was a square test. The girls had plainly been put on." MESA MATTERS. Insurance Company. BOONE (fe LEWIS, General Managers For Arizona. Rooms 5 and 6 Fleming Block.

The Night Watchman Inveigled Out of the Vicinity. E. F. Kellner's store was robbed on Saturday night. An entrance had been made through a rear door. The cash register was rifled of $14.75 but so far as is known nothing else was taken. The burglary was evidently committed soon after 11:30 o'clock. About that time Right Marshal Wickham was standing near the city hall and heard a sound across the street like the smash ing of glass. The noise 6eeraed to come from the Phoenix Hay and Grain com pany building. He hurried across and three men ran np Jefferson street. He followed them but was unable to over take them and finally lost trace of them in the alley in the rear of the Gilson block. He returned to the city hall and awoke the jailer, Al Hawley, who re mained awake and in that vicinity du ring the rest of the night.. He thinks the store could not have been broken into during the time he was on watch. Officer Wickham suspects that the chase he had was planned in order to give the burglars an opportunity. PERSONAL.
