DAILY PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, SEPTEMBER 26, 1892.
V FOREIGN NEWS. More A taut the I earl Harbor Stat on. American Politics Senator Piatt. Will Support Harrison Another Exploring Party to Invade Africa. from our tea Francisco Correspondent. The fact that New York harbor is alive with the dread rholera, which is liable to land every day. has caused a general clean up and disinfection in the cities of the country, not excepting San Fran cisco, where the Silurians have been scared into expending money for cleanliness. In fact the city is really being placed in a condition to repel the scourge. Whether this is possible remains to be seen ; but it is a fact that the disease can reach this congenial city within five days from the time it may land in New York. Hence the liberality of the Silurians. In Russia the scourge is reap ing a rich harvest among the poor starved lower classes. The deaths in that country average about 3000 daily. .Statistics show that 50 per cent, of the people attacked die. In England, although the disease was scattered all over the kingdom, it has not spread, and all fears are at an end. Canada is about to place an em bargo on all European immigration during the continuance of the Hcourge. Knowing the attitude of of this country, the French Govern ment has turned back immigrants destined for America, not desiring to take chances of their being re turned on a cholera-infected ship. The English authorities are also taking great precautions against sending the scourge across the water, and if constant care and effort will suffice, the cholera will not enter the United States. New Coaling Stations. A dispatch from Washington dated the 2d says : It is said at the Navy Department to-night that this Government has almost completed negotiations for the pur chase of Ford's island and Puuloa point at Pearl river, near Hono lulu, for the establishment of that long sought coaling station. When title is acquired the Government will proceed to dredge the channel and establish a station. It is likely that part of the $250,000 provided by Congress for coaling stations will be used for the pur chase of a station in Samana bay, San Domingo, West Indies. The Kearsarge is now en route there to conduct negotiations. American Missionaries to be Protected. The Department of State is ad vised by the United States Charge d'Affaires at Constantinople that the Turkish Government has ac quiesced in the claim of the United States for protection to the Ameri can missionaries at Bourdour, in the province of Konia, Asia Minor, and reparation for the injuries to the person and property of Dr. Bartlett. Indemnity to the full value of the unfinished house which was burned, besides a personal in demnity to Dr. Bartlett, has been tendered and accepted. The Turk ish Minister had a conference with Secretary of State Foster, and has confirmed the assurances of the friendly desire of his Government to meet all just demands, and to perform all its international duties in the protection of American citizens and their interests in the Turkish Empire. The Bourdour incident is regarded as practically settled, removing the occasion for the dispatch of war vessels to Smyrna to investigate the affair. Seizing the Gilbert Group. In a communication in the Washington Post of September 10th, George D. Fisher demands to know of the State Department: "By what right does her British Majesty's Government claim or seize Gilbert Island in the Pacific Ocean as under British protection and power, though there are now a number of white settlers there?" The Gilbert group was first settled by a white citizen of the United States many years ago, who had sailed from the Territory of Ore gon. He was the only survivor of an American wreck upon its shores, and was the only white inhabitant for many years. Not knowing any name for the group at that time, he called the principal island, where he lived, after his elder brother Gilbert, now living in the State of Illinois. This brother cast away was one of several heirs to a small estate of their father, who had died in the State of New York. When he disappeared from Oregon he was not again heard from for many years, and was supposed lost at sea. His father's estate was settled up and divided on the be lief that this son was dead. Sub sequently to the final settlement of the estate it was learned through North, a Pacific whaler captain, who had watered and fresh-provisioned at these islands, that this lost son was found to be the only white man then living upon the said islands, and he afterward re ceived his rightful proportion of his father's estate. Some years ago he died, and it is certain from his naming the islands they have be come known as the Gilbert Isl ands. There are said to be sur viving children of his living, by his native wife, and that the islands, since he named them after his brother, are known and recognized by all geographers and charts as (iilbert Islands. American Politics. The national campaign has been very slow thus far, there being lit tle to enthuse over. Blaine has written a letter from his Maine home endorsing Mr. Harrison's ad ministration, and it is supposed that this is all that he will do to ward the campaign. Vermont and Maine have both held their usual September elec tions. The Republican majority is about 21.000 in Vermont, a gait, of 14 pe cent, over the results in 1890. Maine has gone Republican by about 12,000 majority. Cleveland is spending most of his time at Buzzard's Bay, Mass. He has made several trips to New York and clairrs to have the teeth of the Tammany tiger drawn. Tammany has held several meet- 4 ADLAI E. 6TEVKNSOS. DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE PRESIDENT. FOR VICE- ings lately endorsing the ex-Presi- dent. Cleveland is spending most of his letter of acceptance presumably time on his which will soon he published. A new tin plate factor7 was opened at Ellwood, Ind., on the 13th before 5000 spectators. The occa sion was made the excuse for an old-time Republican political out burst. McKinley and others spoke. The local campaign is getting very hot and three parties will have tickets in the field, both the old parties and the Citizen's non-Parti-san party. There is far more in terest felt here in the result than in the national campaign. Rousing municipal conventions and meet ings are being held. Senator Piatt of New York has buried his hatchet and announces that he will use his entire influence for Harrison. This a bad blow for the Democracy. The Republicans of Nevada are split in three parties and it is pos sible the State may go Democratic for the first time in its history. The silver question is responsible for the trouble. President Harrison has visited Whitelaw Reid, candidate for Vice President and talked over the cam paign. Senator Allison has led off the Republican national campaign by a stirring speech in Iowa. He pre dicts a big success for his party. Naturalized Hawaiians. Sax Fraxcisco, Sept. 3d. The Chinese are said to be taking out naturalization papers in Hawaii with an ulterior purpose. They suppose that once they are Ha waiians they may come to the United States and take up resi dence and follow an occupation as Hawaiians. It is a chance, but by no means a certainty. The Chinese can equally take out naturalization papers in Hongkong, which is a British colony, or in Canada, which is another British colony. But the day has gone by to admit Chinese from any quarter. They can only enter the United States by smuggling, and that sort of traffic will not last long. Is it rea sonable to suppose that this coun try would tolerate for an instant the admission of an objectionable population by subterfuge and fraud, when it has direct laws in operation forbidding entrance on any terms? The passport tocitizen ship in the United States would be very easy indeed if the scum of the earth by naturalization devices could defy a prohibition policy. Those Hawaiian Chinese may re main Hawaiians. They must be kept out of America. San Francisco News. Collector Phelps is unable to prove that the nineteen Chinese landed by the smuggling schooner Halcyon near Monterey, were ac tually landed by her. They will probably be discharged. The railroad companies have de cided to make a make a round trip rate of $101, including Pullman sleeper, to Chicago during the Fair. Splendid progress is reported on the new fortifications along the Golden Gate. The batteries will soon be ready for the guns. The battle against the railroad company and against the old clip per lines by the Traffic Association goes steadily on. The subscriptions to the San Francisco and Great Salt Lake Railvvav reach about $3,000,000, and Frederick Homer states that he has secured the funds for building a new road to Los Angeles. The Chinese have decided to re sist the registration required by the Geary Act, which was passed by the last Congress. The six companies have raised $100,000 to fight the law. Internal Revenue Commissioner Mason, who has charge of the registration, says he will try to deport every Chinaman not registered by May, 1893. The firm of Liebes, Brothers, tobacconists, has suspended. They were peremptorily assessed for $270,000 extra duties by the Gov ernment, and could not imme diately realize. The new crematory will be ready for operation about Februarv 1st. 1893. The flag-ship San Francisco ar rived nine days from Honolulu. It was slow coming, because the ship's bottom was fool and the coal was very poor. She was not able to make over ten knots an hour with forced draft, and with natural draft not over nine. The ship has been out six months to a day. There was no sickness aboard. Admiral Brown, who has been ill so long, is ; now able to get about on crutches, i The effort to reduce the assess ment of San Francisco before the State Board of Equalization has failed and the top-notch tax must be paid. E. J. (Lucky) Baldwin has fin ally secured a title to the site on which the Baldwin hotel is built. To do so he had to win a suit and mortgage his property for .$720,000. Sporting. St. Paul, September 7. Nancy Hanks this afternoon broke the world's trotting record for the regulation track by going a mile in 2 :07 at the State Fair grounds. Lewistox, Me., September 7. The world's record for a half-mile track was broken at the State Fair races in this city this aiterneon. The pacer Bunco, Jr., in a match race with Chesterfield paced three heats in 2:20, 2:16 and 2:15. The last quarter of the third mile was made in 32j seconds. Sprixgfield, O., September 7. At Hampden Park this morning Arthur Zimmerman, the champion bicyclist of two continents, came on the track. It was announced that he would attempt to lower the two-mile record, 4.4H 2-5, held by Peter J. Berlo. He covered, two miles in 4 minutes 2-5 seconds, knocking 11 seconds off Berlo's record. Foreign Items. Brisbaxe, Sept. 2. H. M.'s S. Rapid has arrived from New Guinea and Solomon Islands, where she destroyed several villages as pun ishment for the recent outrages. Sydney, Sept. 2. The Japanese Delegation has returned from the New Hebrides. The result of their visit has been disappointing, the settlers being unable to employ la bor. The delegation will probably obtain an area of land from the New Hebrides Company on which to settle Japanese. The greatest drawback to the project is the ab sence of security or protection, and unless the company is prepared to give the strongest protection, the delegation asserts that they will be unable to recommend emigration. The treatment of the Japanese and Kanakas at the hands of Europeans is condemned. $U) SUtocrtisements. Grand Ratification ir .J. i meeting i MONDAY NIGHT !
