I HATIEN HISTORY ONE 10N6 STORY Of REVOLUTION ij (By GERTRUDE E. MALL ETTE) I! - ' i' i' 111 ? 11111111 n i t iji ii m 11 it 11 in i i m 11 ii m m i So far as records show, Hayti. the i Negro Republic has not lost a minute ? in peacefulness since it first rose to ! the dignity of a government not long after the island was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492 and claimed for Spain. In the early part of the seventeenth century a colony of bucanneers made Hayti their piracy headquarters and almost without break the country has since that time been the scene of con tinuous trouble and political disorder. The main couse of the trouble seems to be Ihe fact that the population is composed of negroes for the most part and about 10 per cent, mutattoes who are of a higher order of mental ity than the blacks and who conse quently have been the instigators of a fierce class-hatred. Through the colonization by the bucanneers France received Hayti as one of the terms of the Treaty of Rhyswick in 1697. Then things vr ont more or less smoothly, with onl;v occasional political explos ions. unt 11 the period of the French Revolutlc >n. when one of the most hor rible Inn urrectlons known to history transforu ted the Island Into a veritable slaughter house. The Commission ers of tb e French Convention at that timo pre claimed the Negoes free In order to quell the trouble and to get France t Id of. perhaps, an ungovern able province. British Invasion Taking advantage of the situation Great RHtain conducted an invasion and the King's army found itself face to face with Tousslant L'Ourrenturc who led the Blacks to victory at the expense of the British in 1788. At this juncture Spain ceded to France the eastern part of the Island known as Santo Domingo, and L'Overreturo gathered that section into his govern ment. In 1801 Napoleon sent Governor IAy clera out to capture the formidable Negro General. Tour saint fell Into the hands of the Invaders and was ta ken to France whero he dlod In pris on. The native government, however, not to bo so easily conquered, and in 1803 they succeeded in expolling the Fronch from the province. The next yearfl a native general, Dessalincs, assumed the title of "Emporor." Just twenty-ono years later the Is land received its independence only to launch forth on a series of internal struggles which have- lasted ovor since. In 1884 the division of Santo Domingo set up for itself, and the next year a Negro despot, Emporor Faustin I., tried to annex tho pro vince of Santo Domingo and reclaim it for Hayti. Another forty years of revolutions and the-thing came to a climax in a gigantic civil wur at the close of which General Ilippillte, the successful leader, was procalmed the president That was in 1889. Fomln , Haitian ambassador at Paris, set up a small government at Connives and was ov erthrown by General Nord of the Ha tlan forces, who was a little later proclaimed president by a vote of the array. Hayti is at present a Catholic Re public, boverned by Ncgoes, and in cluding the adjacent islands of Tor tuga, Conaive. and Vache, comprising in all about 19,300 square miles. The present constitution was adopted in 1S89. The population Is something over 1,300,000. President Haytl's President is elected for a term of seven years by the Senate and the Chamber of Communes. The President is assisted by a Cabinet of four members, himself being fifth and the chairman. The Chamber of Com munes has ninety-five members sel ected by direct election of the peo ple for threo year terms, each com mune being represented in accordance with its population. The Senate con sists of thirty-five members elected for six years from two lists, one sub mitted by the President and the oth er by the electors. The laws of the Ropublfc are based upon the code of Napoleon. No white foreigners are allowed to gain pos session of real estate anywhere with in the Republic. French is the lan guage of the country, though a dial ect is spoken by the peasant classes. Educational facilities are very inade quate and comprise only 400 free schools for elementary grades. Santo Domingo Sanfo Domingo, the oldest Europ ean settlement in America, whose 25,000 population occupy the western end of the Island of Hayti, was dur ing the time of Grant's administra tion considered to be a very desirable plum on account of its large coffee plantations. A treaty was proposed in November of 1869 whereby after the payment of $1.500,00t) Santo Do mingo was to be annexed to the Unit ed States. The treaty was ratified by the islanders, but the United States Senate saw the matter othrwise and the treaty was rejected by a tie vote. The history of Santo Domingo is very much like that of the country on the other end of the Island. Hayti, and the assassination of rulers and military officials has been the rule for a continued process of revolution. The Republic of Santo Domingo? or the Dominican Republic?occupies the larger part of the Island of Hayti, though the less populous. It contains between 18,000 and 19,000 square miles and about 700,000 population. The people are a mixture of the orig inal aborgines, Europeans and ne groes. The Europeans are mostly Spanish, though there is a liberal mixture of French. The Spanish lan guage prevails, though French and English are spoken in the cities. In Pawn?

Manager Radonich and the mem bers of the governing board of the Ju neau baseball club, are working hard among the fans, using persuasion and prayer to get a largo attendance out to the ball yards tomorrow. The oc casion is the eighteenth game of the 20-gnmc series between TreadNvell and Juneau, and if the team can pull out of the season without being badly in debt, it will be due to the attend ance at the remaining four games. Every fan who believes in baseball should be at Recreation Park tomor row. The game will bo called at 3:15 promptly, and as the teams are tied, a good contest should be provided. Granville or Fry will work for Ju neau, and Killcen or Fox will twirl for Tread well. ? ; 4 eiG LEAGUE BASEBALL. 4 4 STANDING OF THE CLUBS Northwestern League. Won Lost Pctg.
