Proctor of Vermont.
Mr. Morgan attached ranch aignifi
eanee to the faot that no word of oppo

senate had passed the Nicaragua canal
bill 10 days ago. He said it disclosed
that England had abandoned hops of
controlling tbe Isthmus canal, and had
centered all her energies npon controll

Hawaiian cable concession.
The senator declared that Great Brit
ain was seoretly endeavoring to wrest
from tbe United States the great coal
ing station, Pearl harbor, in Hawaii.
"It is vital that we aot, and act at
once," said Mr. Morgan impressively.
"I would rather see every rule of this

Mr. Hawley aatd be had a personal
interest in the latest advices from Ha

waa well known to him. The aenator
paid the highest tribute to Mr. Sew

to charge bim witb this conspiracy.
Mr. Hale earnestly protested against
Mr. Morgau'a apparent approval of tbe
course uf the Hawaiian goverumsnt in
Imposing tbe deatn penalty.
Mr. Morgan—l gave no approval. I
stated cold, naked rights.
Mr. Hale said that tbe leniency of the
north at the close of the rebellion had
been a marvel to the world. "Then,"
the senator said, "and if Hawaii now
proceeds witb tbase executions, she will
be adopting tbe method of Mexico and

by Mexico from the invasion of Guate

party has left San Juan Bautista, in tbe

inspection ia to be made tbe steamer
Cadrenaa has been ordered to be at

many other preliminaries arranged.
Roads have been clsared through tbe
dense forests and eeveral bridges are
already constructed over Impassable
streams, which bridges will also come
in handy in any sudden movements of

Napa, Feb. B.—John Wooden, a sa
loonkeeper, made elaborate preparations
to rob the Bank of St. Helena today
and is now in jail. Word came from
St. Helena that au attempt would be
made to rob the bank and officers were
sent from here to frustrate the attempt.
Wooden's plan was to first enter the
bank and get soils money changod,
survey the premises and then return
and commit the robbery. Wooden car
ried out hie plan as far as getting tbe
money changed, and then returned to
hie room at the hotel, first having
bitched his horse in an alley brick ot
the bank. In order to avoid bloodshed
the onicerß did not wait for him to at
tempt tbe robbery, but ar'eated him in
iiie room. Wooden tried to get a bell
boy at tbe hotel to help him, and the
boy at ones informed the police.
Wooden bears a hard reputation, and
being under tb9 influence of liquor,
would doubtless have att.iinntcd to rob
tbe bank in broad daylight had he not
bosn arrested.

Perilous Position or Thrae Men In a
Milwaukee, Wis., Feb. B.—Some
where out in tbe lake nine men are
supposed to bs adrift in two yawl boats
that left tbe North Point pumping sta
tion last night. The first yawl boat is
manned by four men who came in from
tbe orib for supplies and started back
with provisions. It is supposed this
boat failed to reach the crib and tbat it
drifted out toward midlake. About two
hoars later a second yawl boat manned
by five volunteers went out to tbe orib
in anawer to distress signals. This boat
also baa not been beard from, and it is
supposed tbat it too failed to reaob the
lake end ol the in-take tunnel.
The fire boat Foley, having in tow
a orew of volunteera in the surf
boats left the harbor at 9 p. m., and was
seen to communicate with the men on
the crib and then steam out on tbe lake.
The supposition is that tbe fire boat is
out in search of tbe yawl boats and
their occupants, but up to this hour it
has not returned to port. If the men
in the yawls failed to land at the crib
tbey were probably frozen to death,
because the thermometer was 20 degrees
below zero ou the lake and some of
them were Ecantily dressed. Tbe men
are all miners employed on tbe shore
end of the tunnel. They bad just come
out of the shaft and when they beard
tbere was danger on the orib they vol
unteered their Bervioss at once. The
lake seemed calm near the shore, but
out a way quite a strong northwest wind
waa blowing.
Late this afternoon the tug retained,
without finding the men.
Rnport of tha Stat- Board of Media
Albany-, Feb. B.—The report of the
stats board of mediation sod arbitration
on tbe Brooklyn strike was presented to
the legislature today. It is very vol
uminous, it says: "Tbe primary cause
of this Brooklyn strike and all kindr ed
strikes is that the legislature in creating
railroad corporations has neglectod to
make necessary provisions for stable and
efficient service of operating forces upon
tbe Hues to subserve the ends for which
they were clothed with the state's
power ol eminent domain. The inter
ruption of operation of the railroads in
service to the people, by reason oi con
troversy or dispute between tbe com
pany and tbe operating force, or strike
of tbe latter, should made impossible."

Toronto, Ont., Feb. B.—General
Booth, of the Salvation army, said last
night in reply to a question with r.gard
to the prophscr enunciated by him that
the end of tbe century would be signal
ised by catastrophes, that this forecast

had wrongs which required redreasiag,
bnt were determined to have them re

rection, there would be a popular out
