REASONS FOK ANNtXATION.
(-Minister Thurston Tells Why Hawaii
Should Become a Portion of Code 8ama
Washington, Oct 11. Lorin A.
I'hurBton, ex-minister from Hawaii,
lias issued a "Handbook on the Annex-
ition of Hawaii '
The book consists of a statement of
he reasons in favor of annexation; a
brief description of Hawaii, its people,
government, laws, commerce, finances,
educational system and resources; an
enumeration of 20 objections that have
been made to annexation and a reply
to each and an exhaustive summary of
all the facts relating to the island.
In specifying the reasons lor annex
ation Mr. Thurston says: "It will pre
vent the establishment of an alien and
possibly hostile stronghold in a posi
tion commanding the Pacific coast and
the commerce of the north Pacific and
secure to the United States the strate
gical control of the north Pacific,
thereby protecting its Pacific coast and
commerce from attack.
'AH of the great powers lie, or have
coaling stations within steaming dis
tance of the Atlantic coast of the Uni
ted States. No nation possesses a coal
ing station near enough to the Pa&fio
coast to be available as a base of oper
ation against it The Pacific is so wide
that war ships cannot cross and oper
ate on the Pacific coast without coaling.
'A country in possession vof Hawaii
would have a base of supply and re
pair within four or five days steaming
of any part of the Pacific coast and be
standing menace to it and its com
merce. By simply keeping other na
tions out of Hawaii the United States
will secure almost absolute immunity
from naval attack on the Pacific coast
'Upon the opening of the Nicaragua
or Panama canal, practically all of the
shipmnf? bound for Asia making use
thereof, will stop at Honolulu for coal
Other reasons given by Mr. Thurston
are as follows: The conditions are
uch that the United States must act
ow to preserve the results of its past
policy and to prevent the dominaney
in Hawaii of a foreign pepple. It is no
onger a question of whether Hawaii
ihall be controlled by the native
Hawaiian, or by some foreign people,
but the question is 'What foreign peo
ple shall control Hawaii.' Those in
imical to American interests may ob
tain control in Hawaii and terminate
all special privileges now held by the
United States and transfer them to
Mr. Thurston refers to heavy Jap
anese immigration to Hawaii and adds:
"Regardless of The declarations of the
Japanese government, Hawaii has
against the will and efforts of its gov
ernment and people, drifted Japan-
wards during the past two years, and
unless radical action is taken to stay
the process there can be but one logical
result, viz: The ultimate supremacy
of the Japanese in Hawaii This will
be accomplished in the teeth of the
American policy of exclusion of for
eign control and with no tangible overt
act on the part of the Japanese gov
ernment 'The controversy with Japan is the
preliminary skirmish in the great com
ing struggle between the civilizations
of the east and west The itsue in
Hawaii is whether, in that inevitable
struggle, Asia or America shall have
the vantage ground of the control of
the naval key of the Pacific, the com
mercial crossroads of the Pacific.
"All 'that is now holding Hawaii
from retrograding into an Asiatic out
post is a handful of resolute and deter
mined men. But there is a limit to
their strengh, and if help is to come in
time it must come soon. Annexation
will settle the issue and maintain
American control in Hawaii and noth
ing else wilL"

HATRED OF ENGLAND.
The Chief Sentiment Expressed in a Con
- ventlon of Irlbh Leaders at Dublin.
Dublin, Oct 12. The first general
national convention of the Irish Inde
pendent league, organized by John
Redmond, M. P., the Parnellite leader,
opened here Monday. Eight hundred
enthusiastic delegates packed the hall
and vociferously cheered every point
in the speeches which met with their
approval, and jeered the names oi
Dillon, Healy and Davltt, as well as
hissed the name of Mr, Gladstone
when Mr. Redmond characterized him
as "The Englishman who betrayed
Ireland." Every reference to the strug
gle of 1798 was greeted uproariously,
particularly Mr. Redmond's reading of
the oath taken by the' revolutionists.
All the speeches paid tribute to the pa
triotism of the late Charles Stewart
Parnell, and warm cheers greeted the
entrance of the Redmonds, John Par
nell and Patrick O'Brien Into the halL
The climax of the convention was
reached when, during a speech deliv
ered by William Redmond, be said that
when the Dillonites rejected Parnell
hey "alienated the United States,
thus killing the goose that laid the
golden egg."''Mr. Redmond said: "The
great mass of the Irish people are to
day and will be until liberty is given
them, the enemies of England. En
gland is a bully, a pirate and a savage.
Whether in India or Africa, the bloody
flag of the British empive has been ad
vanced by plundering and destroying
poor people. Our sympathy goes out
to these poor people. God bless them
and give success to their efforts. Three
cheers for the men in India who are
The delegates thereupon climbed
upon their seats and shouted: "Down
with Britain." Much denunciation ot
England and talk of 1798 followed, Mr.
Kelly, of Manchester, saying hat Ire
land would have her jubilee in 1898,
"over the attempt of honest men to do
honest work for Ireland." There was
also much denunciation of Great Brit
ain's proposal o give Ireland a Cath
olic university. The participation of
priests in politics was condemned and
the Healyites were denounced as "The
assassins of Parnell." There was, how
ever, no discord.
A telegram from the Independent
Irishmen, of Boston, said: "We stand
by Parnell's policy and urge the gov
ernment to disgorge its plunder in the
face of the distress existing, and we
send $100 as evidence of our good
faith." The reading of this message
was followed by ihree cheers for the
stars and stripes.
Mr. Redmond denounced the liberals
for abandoning home rule and de
clared that the only hope of Ireland
was in independent action, without
any alliance with the English parties.
Resolutions were adopted stating that
the Irish question can only be settled
by the concession of national self-gov

her home. "She still remains absent
and will remain missing as long as the
world endures, shouted the assistant
state's attorney, staring at Luetgert
Then the case was taken up chrono
logically and all the incidents traced
down to the date of the opening o(
the trial. This started with the in
quiry of Diedrich Bicknese for his sis
ter and Lvetgert's indifferent reply
that she had left home in a temper
and would return when she got over it
All these were traced by the speak,
er, who praised the police for the ex
cellence of their work. "The convic
tion of innocent men upon circumstan
tial evidence has sometimes occurred,"
said McEwen, "but such men died as
truly to support law and order as the
soldier or the sailor killed in battle."
The alleged relations of Luetgert and
