The generous manner in which the public is responding to the Advertiser's fund for the leper band is very encouraging, and it is expected that the amount desired by the band to purchase clothing will be realized before the end of the week. O.nk of the inconsistencies of the anti-annexation fight carried on by royalist journals is the bitter and senseless manner in which they all denounce everybody who happens not to agree with their ideas of restoration. Leading German resi dents are condemned, conservative Englishmen are scored, the Portu guese are pointed to contemptuously and sarcastically as the scum of the earth, and the appearance of an American upon the scene causes a very hovl to go up, in several dif ferent language?, whose meaning cannot be interpreted, without knowing: the nationality of the ;rr iters. The excellent work which the board of health is accomplishing is a source of much gratification. The painstaking character of tbe inves tigations being made is one of the most noticeable features of the new board's work. The report of the committee just returned from the leper settlement not only contains a practical working plan, but it is backed by a clearly expressed de termination, on the part of the president and members, to carry out all necessary improvements and reforms without fear or favor in any direction. This is as it should be, but not as it has sometimes been in the past. SIGN TIIB ROLL. Since the organization of the an nexation cluh its membership and mfluence have rapidly increased. ,frrora the first it has been a pro nounced American organization, but it has not at any time been ex clusively so. Its membership takes in most nationalities domiciled here and there are none except Asiatics whose names are not welcomed up on its roll. The object of the club is to se cure annexation to the United States of America upon such terms as shall include and benefit all : classes of our citizens. It would exclude none from any of the ben efits to be derived by American residents under annexation. To the native Hawaiians the club says, Come into our ranks, help us fight the battle for the advancement of our island civilization, and when this is won enjoy with us the civil and commercial fruits of annexation upon a footing of poli tical equality. This has not been desirable or practical under the depressing influences of the mon archial form of government which has, at all points, stunted the so cial and political development of the native people. The time has now arrived when every resident of Hawaii should begin to see his individual inter ests are nearly akin to the princi ple of annexation in other words, to national prosperity. There are many whose names are not yet on the club's roll who do see it, but wfeo hold back because, per haps, they are not American resi dents, or on account of some similar excuse. To such we say, go inspect the roll?, and you will find not only Americans, but Germans, English men, Portuguese, Frenchmen, and at, but not by any means least,- Six large numbers of patriotic Hawai ians who love the future prosperity of their country better than they do the dead husks of royalty and the unprofitable government offered under an effete monarchy. NEW ELECTRIC COM I A NY. The Franchise Purchased b- II all & Son. The sale of the electric light and power franchise took place j-ester-day at noon in front of the govern ment building. There wa3 but one bidder, V. V. Hall of the Hawaiian Electric Company. He offered the upset price of 2 per cent, of the gro33 receipts from all electric light and power furnished to consumers, and it was knocked down to his company. The franchise is to run for ten years. It is the intention of the Hawaiian Electric Company to go to work immediately and make the necessary arrangements for securing a large plant. In all probability the works will be estab lished on the esplanade, if a suit able location can be secured. The company will have to materially increase their present capital to carry on their proposed work, as they intend to purchase a large engine, boilers and additional dynamos. The company will hold an im portant meeting tomorrow morning at the office of E. O. Hall & Son. The Circuit Court. In the case of assault and battery against Haaheo and Kanalu, the jury returned a verdict of acquittal. D. Watson and three others entered a plea of not guilty under a charge of housebreaking-. Malie Akamu was arraigned for housebreaking and pleaded not guilty. No Missing Link. Professor Rudolph Virchow, the well-known biologist, is one of those who receive with caution the proofs of a lo order of man uniting him to the ape, and in a recent speech has TK'fMed out that all the low type biiulls yet found resemble those of modern and civilized races. We are still seeking in vain for the "missing link." He admits that the human body in an animal organization governed by the same laws as the bodies of animals, but recognizes a different barrier separating man from the animal, namely, heredity, which transmits to children the faculties of their parents. All men having a simian appearance are simply pathological variants. The Eskimo and Terra del Fuegan heads, form erly regarded as low, are now known to belong to perfected types. The Andaman skulls, and those of the Veddahs of Ceylon, were once thought to be low, but although they are small they are of good shape. A single race, the orang simaings and orang cekai of Ma lacca, still remain unstudied. Mik lukle Maklai, the Russian traveler, has reported that they are small and have curly hair, and an expe dition has been sent to investigate their anthropology. Professor Virchow has received a skull and a few locks of hair from the party, and as far as he has ex amined them he regards the stock as that of a black race with curly hair. The head is broad and of moderate capacity, but does not present the segment sign of bestial development. According to Profes sor Virchow there i3 no proanthro pos or man-monkey. The missing link remains a phantom of the mind. Manchester (Eng.) Times. A case of considerable interest to British sailors has recently been decided at New York. A seaman named Henry, who shipped at Car diff on board the steamship Mal vern, left that vessel on her arrival at Boston, declaring that he had been subjected to ill-treatment, and also that, being a minor, he was not bound by his articles. lho British Vice-Con3ul, before whom the case was brought, decided that Henry was a deserter. Henry, however, brought an action for the amount of the wages due to him, and Judge Nelson, of the United States Court, has now declared that the Vice-Consul's judgment is not final, since the treaty of 1S92 be tween the United States and Great Britain does not give him sole jurisdiction. It is, therefore, re garded as possible that Henry may recover the amount which he claims. Am. Ex. The Illustrated Tourists' Guide That popular work, "Thk Toctjsts Gcidk Through ths Hawaiian Isl ands," is meeting with 3 steady sale both at home and abroad. Tourists and others visiting these islands should be in possession of a copy of it. It is a per fect mine of information relating to tne scenes and attractions to be met with here. Copies in wrappers can be had at the publication office, 46 Merchant street, and at the News Dealers. Price 60 cents. The birds of the South have suffered almost equally with the deer and wild animals of the far North ami West through the unusual severity of this winter. The turkey buzzards have died in great numbers in South Carolina and other States from cold and hunger, the earth having been frequently hidden under snow.

In the matter of the application of George Titcomb for a writ of habeas corpus, it was held there is 110 offense known to our law as "an assault with a dangerous weapon." A verdict, the mittimus corresponding1, finding the defendant guilty of such an offense, is void. Tbe sentence must be void upon its face in order to entitle the petitioner to a discharge on habeas corpus. If a sentence within the jurisdic tion of the court and regular on its face, he found by an inspection of the record to be not responsive to the indictment, it is voidable and can only be set aside on appeal or by a writ of error, and is not cognizable on habeas corpus. Let the prisoner be discharged. In the case of Pow Kee against the Wilder Steamship Co. for the non-delivery of goods, destroyed by fire, it was held that in an action against a common carrier for non de livery of goods destroyed by fire, the i carrier being by special contract ex empt from liability for losses by fire not due to its negligence, evidence of changes in the general conduct of its business made by the carrier after the fire is inadmissible to show neg ligence at the time of the lire. Tbo acceptance without objection of a bill of lading is evidence of the shipper's assent to a provision con tained in the body of the bill ex empting the carrier from liability for losses by fire not due to its negli gence. A consigner prima facie has authority to bind the consignee by special contract. The Bohemian. All classes and trades of men have burdened the world with their wants and their woes save the bo hemian. Who ever knows of the struggles of the men whose brains are their only tools, of their heart aches and despair, their bitter dis appointments? Who knows of their battles for the bread they need? Notv and then some poor, weak soul, wearied by a woe too great, seeks from another world a justice owed him here. Bohemia mourns him a day, there are possibly a few lines .in some newspapers saying that "overwork," which is diplo matic language for underpay, killed him, and all is over. Or, may chance, the weirdly humorous tale over which you laugh so heartily, recounting the adventures of a poet in search of a purchaser, had for its basis a personal experience of the author. He could not sell his poem, but must have bread, and so out of his misfortunes he made good cheer. His adaptability is one of his peculiarities. The or dinary man rebuffed by fortune would sit down and mourn himself into an illness. The bohemian utilizes those very reverses, and both he and the world are the merrier eventually for them. There is much more fact than fancy be hind many of the tales that make pass pleasantly an evening by the fireside. The bohemian is not a trespasser on the time of any man nor a trader on the sympathies of a world that doe3 not understand him. He contributes his brains while other men contribute their brawn, and yet the latter claim all the rewards for the progress made in the ages. -1 m What lie Called It. "To come back to what I was about to say, Miss Quickstep," be gan the rising young statesman, the honorable member from the 'Steenth District, clearing his throat, "you must have suspected that I" "What a queer thing a cat is, isn't it, Mr. Hackers? See how quickly pussy gets acquainted with one. Rubs her head against you and purrs as if she had known you all her life." "Yes, a cat is a queer animal. I haven't any great admiration for cats, I confess, but to return to what I was about to say, Miss Amanda, you will pardon me if I seem too presumptuous when I tell you that I" "Don't you think 'Mr. Isaacs' is a very wonderful story, Mr. Hack ers?" "Yes, it's a great story. But what I wanted to say is that I " "And are you readinp 'Benefits Forgot?' " "No. I always wait till a maga zine story is finished before I tackle it.

It is about two years since 17 Egyp tian mummies in the old museum of Berlin proved to be the bodies of fel lows who a short time ago took their beer in the saloons of the capital of William II.
