HAWAII'S ROYAL DELEGATE
CELEBRATES 4IST BIRTHDAY
Prince ' Jonah t Kuhio Kalanianaole,
delegate to Congress from. 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

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. The latter confessed and
declared tha't she thought she had fin
ished her husband and sld sbo knew

such an extent that his administration
has . tended toward the concentration
of wealth, prestige "and power in. the
hands, of a few persons, who play, the'
role of feudal lorda to a population
reduced to serfdom. 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. A
cousin to th 5 fe King Kalakaua and;
Queen Liliuokalani, he was "created a
prince by royal proclamation ' in' 1884.'
and would have - succeeded- . to. the
throne ir ther absenne rtt a rlfrpot iv.1t-:.'

thrown. In 1896 be made a tour of
the globe, and was . received ' as an
equal by the princes of all the lands
he visited. . ' : .;
The United States occupation of the.
islands , was accepted philosophically
by the royal heir, . who now declares
that he is much prouder to be a dele
gate to the American Cogress and a
citizen of the United States than h
would be to rule over the native is
lands as King. .'.''..",
