Hawaii, has the honor if. an honor it- be of being the only scion of a royal house who has ever served a term in the na tional legislature at Washington. A term, did I say?. The Prince has four terms to, his credit, and is now on his fifth, with excellent prospects of re- I mainlng in the capital until lncapacl- : tated by old age. That calamity is ally supposed to be more ornamen-a,l t'hain useful, but Prince Jonah is both. He's-a handsome man, with a cute little mustache, and a favorite with 'th ladies. . What's more to the point, he always gets what he is after, and Congress has yet to "turn him down" on any propos'tion he has advanced. The Prince has recestly demanded an .official investigation into the conduct i ship, and has used his influence against the regulation of ' transporta tion facilities, thus, preventing agricul tural and horticultural development alon? American lines.. The Prince in sinuates that Gov. Frear is Influenced by "matrimonial and social tles" to HOW IT WAS DONE Acquirement of Old New York Custom House, by a Bank, "tinder . ' '.'Pressure." " ;''.. ' '' Washington, March 26. The ghost of the 'transaction in which, on' terms al leged to have been extremely easy, the National City Bank; of New YorK, ac quired the old custom house in New York, arises in every session of Con gress. . That was true of the present session, a few days ago, when the wraith was called up by Rep. Fitzger ald, of Brooklyn, Chairman of 'the House appropriations committee. "Two bids were submitted for the old custom house," he said. "The Nation al City Bank made an offer, I think, of about $3,200,000 as against $3,125,000 offered by the Farmers Loan and Trust Co. The award -was made .to the National City Bank. v "Brit when the contract was made provisions . were inserted in it that had never been called to the attention of the respective bidders by which it was provided that all of the purchase price should not be paid until the Govern ment was ready to abandon the prop erty, and the Government agreed to pay 4 per cent, upon the purchase price as rent to Its purchaser, although it retained the title itself; and it also agreed to deposit $3,200,000 which was supposed to . be paid in the National City Bank. The result was that the National City Bank made a' bookkeep ing, transfer of $3,200,000 on its books, ithe Government retained the title, it pa!?d,the National City Bank 4 per cent. ' on the purchase price for five or six years as rent on its own property, tr e property remained , exempt from taxation, and eventually the .National Cifty Bank practically got the proper tv for almost the amount that the Government had paid to It In rent. That- is what can be done by distin guished gentlemen under pressure." The custom-nouse, an ,oia structure of most impressive architectural de sign, was located in Wall Street, In the very heart of the financial district. RITUAL MURDERS How Wife Attempted to Place Sus picion on the Jews. St. Petersburg, March 26. An exam ple of how "ritual murders" are some times charged to the Jews, is given by the "Retch." Mrs. PrasXowja Kup- jenko, of Cdessa, was tired of her hus band. She took ner nusoana to a Jewish bakery in which she was em ployed, plied him with liquor, led him to an empty room, tied a towel around his neck and cut h's throat. His moans brought the Jewish baker. As the police came, the wife burst into the room and declared that the Jews had attempted a. "ritual murder." The taker's family was arrested. When Kuprenko however, regained conscious ness, he 1 1 the' story of the attack of his wife.

In short, the Prince, despite his blue blood, is strong for American democracy, and out for Pov. Frear's scalp.', ' Prince "Cupid V as he 5 is "called for short, has . also found time lately to ; introduce some of the native. Hawaiian, dances to Washingtonians, and has personally taught a number ' of the belles of the Congressional set how to go through the graceful steps- And somewhat daring contortions - of the native dancing girls of the islands. He Indignantly denies that the. dances are naughty, although those who have , witnessed them declare that they, are even "more so" than the turkey trot , and such froliscome dadoes. " The Prince was educated In Hawaii. the United Staites and England; and was a high functionary of the Ha waiian department of the Interior dur--tag the days of the monarchy.
