To accomplish this Is now the aim of her attendants- Shortly after noon today Mrs. Mc Kin.sy expressed a desire to be taken tr the cemetery.

Emperor William has conferred the grand cross of the order of the Red Eagle upon Prince Chun, the head of the Chines? mission of expiation for the murder of Baron Von Ketteler COURT TANGLE IN HAWAII. Prisoners Arrested in Transition Period Possibly May Go Fr.-e. Honolulu, Sept.' 20. The supreme court of Hawaii has Just deciled In fa vor of the validity of the income tax, and also that convictions during the transition period without grand Jury indictments or unanimous Jury ver3ict3 were legal and constitutional., and it has thereby thrown the courts in chaos for a second time. It had been neld by the circuit court that there was no right to appeal in habeas corpus, and also that the constitution was in force In the Hawaiian Islands upon the pas sage of the Newiands iesoiution. The supreme court now holds that the circuit urt is wrong and that the laws of the Hawaiian republic were in force until the passage of the organic act in June, 1900. A new move has al ready been made by the attorneys for the prisoners illegally convicted during the two years of l:ansttton period, and a writ has been apllled for before Fed eral Judge Estee. who will now take up rhe whole question as to the consti tutionality of the convictions during the transition period. The hearing of these new habeas cor pur cases has been set for September 12. and If the federal court holds that the prisoners were deprived of their liberty contrary to law, there can be no rearrest, as the supreme court in its decision states that the prisoners have once bden placed in Jeopardy. An appeal is likely in the Income tax case, probably to the ninth court of ap peals, at San .Francisco. It was the general expectation here that the law would not be sustained, and it had neve-r been taken Eerlously. In every case there was a dissenting opinion. FOLLOWED THE FLAG The Constitution Went As Far As Hawaii. Honolulu, Sept. 13. United States Judge Estee has decided that the con stitution of the United States was ex tended to the Hawaaian islands by the Newlnnria rpwrlurlnn sustaining the de- I cision of Circuit Judge Gear and re I versing the supreme eourt of Hawaii. ' The decision was rendered- in the case of a Japanese convicted of manslaugh ter without Indictment of the grand Jury' and on a verdict of nine trial Ju rors. An appeal from Estee's decision will be taken to the United States su- preme court IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN Predictions of the Politicians Game to Naught An Elaborate List Prepared From Which the President Was Ex pected to Hake Up a New . Cabinet. Washington. Sept. 20. The President is dead ani buried, but the government still lives, wi'.h a new executive of manly vigor and typical American manhood. With Theodore Roosevelt as president there will be no change in the policy of the government, the president him self having made this announcement. The republican administration will con tinue along the same lines in which it has run for the last four years and eight months, bringing unparalleled prosperity to the country. It was Mr. Roosevelt who in the campaign of a year ago gave the most emphatic and direct pledge to the people as to trrc policies of the Mi-Kinley administra tion While President McKinley, fol lowing the traditions of his office1, re mained silent after his letter of accept ance, the candidate for vice presiient was put forward to speak for the party for which he stood as the representa tive. , There is, therefore, no eiuestion 89 to the continuation of the present :epub'ican. policies. Now that the president has requested the members of the cabinet to remain with him to the end ol his term and that they have consented, the earlier prognostications of politicians bscome Interesting as showing how little was known In inner circles ef President Roosevelt's purpose. The change-whkh It was predicted would come to the government with the chang of the official head would be merely In the personnel of the official stun. These officials are only the per sonal representatives of the president In c-ontio' of the various departments of government and his personal advisors In regard to the plans ad po'iclesof his administration. The traditions of the office leave no question as to the per sonal selection of the cabinet by th? president without dictation from any jtower. So Ji'alou.sly has this right of the pres ident been guarded that the senate has rarely raised a question as to the wis dom of the selections. Ths appoint ments of cabinet officers have as a rule been confirmed without question. This was fittingly demonstrated when Pres ident McKinley nominated hij first cabinet and named fjr secretary of the treasury a man who had never been identified with iiis p.rty. cud in uiroiii few republican senators had any con fidence. But no question was raised, an-i the- nomination of Secretary Gage was unanimously confirmed by the same vote as that of John Sherman, the most distinguished veteran of the republican party, as secretary of state. The same unquestioned right to the personal selection of his cabinet was conceded to President Rousev?lt..aid the, first official act of each and every member of the McKinley cabinet was expected to be to present his rtsigna tion to the new executive. The pres ident forestalled this action if any member of the cabinet had it In mind by a wholesale reappointment. There was much speculation as to what republicans Mr. Roosevelt would call to his cabinet in the event r the death of President McKin'ey. It was doubtful if Mr. Roosevelt had given a thought to this question, so anxious had he been for President MeKinley's complete recovery and so grieved over the terrible calamity that' had come to the American people. But th2 ques tion. It was though:, would be forced upon him by the exigencies of the case. He Is president and as the head .of the government responsible for every act of that government. He must have about him advisors in whom he has perfect f-onfulence as to their Judgment. He would call about him such men, but In daing this he would no doubt consult the party leaders with the purpose of meeting best the great questions that must be decided in the next four years. John Hay, the present secretary of stats is a man In whom President Roosevelt has the greatest confidence as to foreign questions, but Mr. Hay was known to have :ittle ;ove for public life, and would consent to remain only as a public duty. But there is a strong reason why the nsw president should select for his secretary of state a man In whom he has absolute confidence, not only as to his knowledge and wis dom regarding foreign affairs, but one whom he would be wil ing to entrust with all the affairs of his administra tion. By the new law of succession the secretary of state would be the first man in the line of succession in case the vice president should die. P.eal df nt Roosevelt would be forced to con sider thl3 question and select for secre tary of state a man whom he would re gard as best fitted to assume the re sponsibilities of the executive office In rase of his death. Senator Henry Cabot Lodge of Mas sachusetts was regarded as the closest political advisor of the new president, and while h? Is known to have ambi tions outside the cabinet he might be the president's choice for secretary of state. Should the president go. west . for his secretary of state. Senator Spooner the defender of the expansion policy, and -an authority on Inter national law, was expected to be sel ected. There has been for some months a determined effort on the part cf leading rpnilhllpnn. tr hflv frirnplliia RIIb. ,r j New Tork selected for secretary of the treasury in th? event President Mc Kinley decided to make a change in the head) of the treasury departments new Yorlf V-i a a 1. 1 ri it Hn impi thflt tho Iirr. ' tary of the treasury should b? selected from that state whose metropolis is re garded as the financial center of the country, though it has been the policy of most republican presidents to go west for a secretary of the treasury that there might be no suspicion of the influence of Wall street. But Cornel ius Bliss would! satisfy the New York financial influence and also the western republicans. particularly thos-? who were' nearest to President McKinley. Serrater Hanna sought to have Mr. Mc Kinley substitute Bliss for Gage at the beginning of his second administration, and many other western re-publicans were Idem lilt .1 with this effort. In the event that the secretary of the treasury should be taken fr.uu N-w Vni k. the next cabinet position, thai .f secretary or war, would go to the west. Secretary' Root has carried a tremen dous load in. that orllce and has im paired his health eo much that h? has been warned by his physicians to light en his work. He would have lelt the office with little regret. It would have been difficult to find a man who com bines the knowledge of law ani the executive ability of Secretary Root, but two western men were mentioned. One of these was Wi'liam H. Taft, present governor of the Phi'lppines. Governor Taft Is one of the great lawyers of the country and) his two years' experience In the Philippines has made him fam iliar with the most difficult problems before the war department. Governor Taft also possesses the de- tiriiiiiiiiiiiuii uiivj- M-inap wiiii-n IS ID.' , . V. I . . ( .. I. ... .. I ) . : i . i, ... ! "i i itiuv ri n k imiuunr iiiiii.sri'. IL. He has b en mentioned as a possible candidate for president in 1M04. and in tho cabinet he wnul t hold his state In line for the renomlnntfnn f Mr rt.in-. veil. General MacArthur was also J suggested for secr-tary of war because I of his faml'larity with the Philippines question and the ability he displayed as governor general. General James H. Wilson of Delaware was mention d also. Should Secretary Long retire from the office of secretary of the navy, in connection with that place the name of ex-Senator Chandler of New Hamp shire, who was secretary of the navy under Peresident' Arthur, was sug gested. Chandler has always been a great friend of the navy and a detr mtned fighter for Its interests while In the senate. It was regarded as probable that Pennsylvania wouM furnish the attor ney general in the new cabinet, and he j mlejht be the present incumbent, Mr. Knox, or some other man acceptable to -Senator CJi-y. The most Intimate j friends of Iresldent Roosevelt hn 1 j formed, a high opinion of the ability of Mr. Richards, the present assistant at torney general, who holds the lam; opinions as the new president regarding I government cnntr.il of trusts. Me-. Richards could not have been selecteJ ' If Governor Taft had become secretary of war, beeausa that would have given the Buckeye state two cabinet posi- i lions. I For postmaster general the name of Henry C Payne of Wisconsin was sug gested. Mr. Roosevelt has a high opin ion of Mr. Payne, and he coul.J do what President McKinley desired to do !ast spring, but .could not because he nlJ not wish to drop Charles Emory Smith. For secretary cf the interinr tn name of cx-Wnator Waicott at Colorado was mentioned. The two men are great friends. The selection of Mr. Wolcott would be a recognition of the far west, and also the country from which came the Rough Riders. No other man was suggested for secretary of agriculture than the present Incumbent, James Wilson of Iowa who represents the great agricultural section of the coun try and Js thoroughly informed as to Its needs. BURNED TO DEATH Arthur Aepli the Victim of a Kero sene Oil Explosion- Arthur Aepli, the eleven year oil son of Mr. and Mrs. P. Aepli was burn ed to death about 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon by the explosion of a can of kerosene. i Th? tragic affair occurred in the renr of the fruit packing establishment con ducted by his father at the corner of Washington and Fourth streets. Tho boy, who had worked there all summer with his father was a "bright little fellow and has frequently been left in charge of the place for hours while his father was out on business. He had Just re turned from school, and Mr. Aepli jtold him to stay there while he went to sup per, and! to employ himself manwniie in sorting- fruit. In the rear of the building Is a nest of ants that have been a source of annoyance all summer and the boy thought he would Just tak time enough from his work to exter minate them: so he got a small can of kerosene, and- after pouring some of the oil la the ant hole he touch-d a matc.t to it. He either held the oil can ! his hand during the operation or had It set down close by, the particulars beinsr unobtainable, as the boy was alone. But at any rate the can exploded and th? oil, which was thrown all over the boy, took fire, and soon enveloped him :n flame. He ran. Into the store, where he was -wrarped In grain sacks, the only thing available to smother the flame, b" a gentleman in the employ of Mr. Aepli, Dr. Stroud was summoned' at once and arrived almost before the fire was extinguished. The little sufferer was taken to the Sisters' hospital, where- everything possible was done for his relief. His legs anf arms are fear fully burned, and so great a portion of the surface of his -body was affected that his recovery was hopeless. Death occurred about half past ten, the litt'e sufferer having lost consciousness two hours before. Mrs. Aepli was some distance in th? country yesterday, and she was sent for last evening. Arthur was a good boy and is highly spoken of by tho3? who knew him. No arrangements for the funeral will be made until the mother comes. COMING TO SEE THE HOLLAND. The Hague. Sept. 20.

St. Louis enter prise will shortly result In the estab lishment of a permanent exhibit 'f American manufactures in Mexico.

'i neo. L. Helmers, vice president and manager cf the Mexican-American Commercial comiony, states that r. building has been st-cured at Guadala jara and prepared for this purpose, ani that it will soon, be opened. Disputches from Washington. D. C, lust montn told of a movement then on foot in the City of' Mexico to establish a perman ent display of goods of American man ufacturers, and at "the same- time to place In at least one of the great cities of the United States a permanent dis play of Mexican products. It was said that St. Louis would be selected as one of two cities in which Mexican exhib its would be made. Manager Helmers of the company behind- the permanent exposition at Gua dalajara stated that his company had for some time worked to establish a similar institution in the City of Mex ico, but 'progress w as so slew that the promoters went to Guadalajara. The main Idea In such an exhibit . t American roods is to get some or th.. trade which is now controlled by Euro, pean manufacture-res. The Latin-American club and Foreign Trade associa tion have already done much to develop pleasant and profitable commercial re lations between Mexico and this city. Mr. Helmr says his company is a member of the Latin-American clun. with which it works in harmony. Th? promoters are working on the theory that a great deal of trade whie-h noxy goes to Europe can be diverted to the United States by keeping a permanent flistplay of American made goods on ex hibition, and this Is the object of the exhibit, which is to be olllcialy known as the Western Mexico Permanent ex change.

DESERVES A PENSION A Former Government Servant Who Needs Assistant eHiw. Mr. B. F. Porter, who returned. yea terday Trcrm the work at the Gila bridge, says that a few days ago an old man came to 'the-railroad camp there, riding one burro and driving another. He had a prospector's- outfit and seemed to bs in very depressed cir cumstances. His skin was datk and Mr. Porter was prompted by the man ner of the man to enter into a conver sation witn him. He discussed the sub ject of the assassination of President McKinley and seemed to grieve ex ceedingly over the circumstance. Finally Mr. Porter asked him whether he was a Mexican. He said he was net but was a native of the old est country In the world. Further con versation revealed the fact that the stranger was Hi Jolly, a native of Greece, and the man who brought the camels to Arizona, forty years age tin- der instructions from Admiral Porter, wno was commiessionea uy the govern ment -to- establish camel tiansporbation across the great American desert. The story of the camels has been told till it is an old one. and the story of Hi Jolly is familiar to all old-timers. After the camel experiment was given up as a failure fte became- an Arizona pioneer, and was at various times em ployed by the government as a scout, guide and packer, and it is said there were none better. He- saw service with Crook. Miles end all the frontier cam- paigne:s, and was seriously wounded in the ankle in a fight with Indians, the wound now giving him considerable troubi-e. When the war in the Philip pines broke out he was Importuned to go to the Philippines as a packer and consented, but reluctantly, on account of his great- age. ' As he feared, the cli mate was too severe for him, and he was forced- to return to Arizona again. He said he was on his way. tor Fort Huachuca where he has a friend who would help him. He told Mr. Porter that he was trying to get a pension, but : -the work was progressing slowly. His i trouble Is that though he has been for many years connected with the military ! service, it has, for the most part, been under contract rather than by enlist ment, and now 6$ years old and without means, though one- of the most de serving of men, he is meeting difficulty in establishing his claims under the pension laws. A letter he carries from an official Intimates that while he be lieves the man fully deserving, he fears It will require a special act of congress for his relief. If this be true, and it is within the power of any citizen of the tetrltory to help him that favor should be tendered him, for HI Jolly was one of the men that made Arizona fit to live in. .
