Problems are Serious.
WASHINGTON. Doc. 14 Adjt. Gen.
Corbin appeared today before the house
committee on military affairs. His
statements attracted unusual interest
because of their direct reference to con
ditions in Cuba, Porto Rico and the
Philippines and the military require
ments on which the war department
was acting. As to the need of an in
creased army, Gen. Corbin said that
wits a most seriotis proposition. He
"The Cuban evacuation commission
h;is submitted a statement that in ord
er to preserve order and restore order
in Cuba it will require the presence
of an army of 50,000 men." "it is my
recommendation." said Gen. Corbin.
"that the plan of sending troops to
Cuba was based. It might be found
that 50,000 men would not be absolute
ly requisite. But we are holding 50.000
men in readiness to go if required."
As to the Philippines, Gen. Otis in
command there had recommended that
25,000 men were required. In Porto
Rico the officers in command there re
ported that the force now on hand is
about adequate for requirements. It is

25,000 for the Philippines and about
6,000 for Porto Rico, leaving from an
army of 100,000 men about 18,000 fy
reserves at home.
"Do you think 50.000 for Cuba a con
servative estimate?" asked Mr. Jett, of
"I think it is," answered the General.
"And how long will that last?" asked
"I wish I could say," answered Gen.
Corbin. "But no man can say. You
cannot view conditions in Cuba, as you
can in Ohio. For 100 years the people
there have been accustomed to be ruled
by force. The officers there fear that,
with these conditions and habits, if
troops are not there, trouble may oc

Only a Yarn.
A story was circulated yesterday
that Sunday night several bombs were
thrown into President Dole's yard
which exploded with sufficient force to
do damage, and that the night watch
man drew a revolver which, he fired
six times at the miscreants. As usual
it was a rumor without any foundation.
The "bombs" were firecrackers thrown
by celebrators on Punchbowl some dis
tance from ' the Executive mansion,
while the gun reports were from a
yard adjoining the President's, where
two men were shooting at a target.

WASHINGTON. Dec. 15. Assistant Secretary Howell, of the CC?
Treasury Department, was heard by the committee on ways and
means today on the need of extending the tariff laws to Hawaii :
as soon as possible. He read a bt:cr from Harold Sewall, for- ).
inerly Tinted Scutes Minister thre, and now Special Agent of
the Treasury, stating that this immediate extension of the laws
was imperative, in order to prevent the irregular entry of goods
to the United States by way of Hawaii.
The committee agreed to the

WASHINGTON, Dec. 15. The Hawaiian tariff bill was per
fected by the Ways and Means Committee today and introduced
by Mr. Dingley. There is necessity for the prompt passage of the
bill, says the accompanying report, because it is said that there
is a concerted plan of foreign dealers to send large quantities of
merchandise to Hawaii and enter it under the Hawaiian tariff,
with a view of taking advantage of the nominal duties, and sub
sequently to ship it to other ports of the United States as art
icles of domestic commerce.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 16. The Senate Committee on Foreign
Relations made some progress today with the bill reported by
the Hawaiian Committee for the government of the Hawaiian
Islands, but adjourned until next Monday without completing the
IN COURT CONTEMPT
IS ATTORNEY DAVIS.
is the fourth day of Attorney
Davis in Oahu prison for con
of court. He was visited on
and yesterday by a number of
friends and found to be in a much bet
ter frame of mind than when commit
ted by Judge Perry on Saturday" last.
Mr. Davis, by order of the court, is in
the custody of Acting Marshal Hitch
cock. The prisoner is making strenuous
efforts to secure his release, or at any
rate a hearing.
On Saturday Mr. Davis was fined $50
for contempt of court in that he had
filed for record an affidavit intimating
prejudice and misconduct on the part
of the court in the now famous case of
Porter vs. the Hawaiian Pork Packing
Co. Then Mr. Davis lost his temper.
He turned loose on Judge Perry a reg
ular torrent of invective, saying that
he had anticipated just such treatment
from the court and that Judge Perry
had been biased against him for a long
time. He accused the Judge of unfair
ness. His remarks were on the order
of burning eloquence and the tide could
not be stemmed by rapping or warning
or calls upon the bailiffs for suppres
sion. Finally Judge Perry ordered ten
days imprisonment for the attorney.
Mr. Davis applied to Chief Justice
Judd for a writ of habeas corpus yes
terday, alleging thatr Judge Perry had
exceeded jurisdiction, as the proceed
ings were in Chambers and not in the
open court of the regular term. The
Chief Justice did not consider the point
well taken and declined to issue a writ.
Mr. Davis will today appeal to Associ
ate Justice Whiting. On leaving the
Chambers session Saturday, Mr. Davis
wished the Judge a Merry Christmas,
not forgetting to secure permission to
file exceptions for his client in twenty

was set aside by Judge Perry on the
ground that Davis had improperly pre
sented certain testimony to the jury.
Another Horse Slashed.
Capt. Robert Parker, of the city po
lice, is again angered and mystified.
With all his Saturday night work he was
not able to get home till about 2 o'clock
Sunday morning. A driving horse of
his that was grazing in the yard he
placed in the barn. At 4:30 the Cap
tain arose to drive with his wife to
the fish market. He found that in the
two hours and a half he had been in
the house someone had entered the
barn and had inflicted several heavy
knife wounds on the horse. The cuts
are painful, but the animal will not
die. This is the third horse that Capt.
Parker has had treated in this way
within six months.
With the Cineoftraph.
The cineogrnph was introduced in
Honolulu to a small audience at the
opera house on Saturday night. The
machinery did net work very well, as
there had been failure to get the re
quired electrical connection. The sing
ing was goon.
Last evening the cineograph was
shown at Kamehameha and a most suc
cessful exhibition was given. The light
was all right and the pictures were

v A Native Stabbed.
An Hawaiian who lives near the
Railroad depot was stabbed last night
by a drunken native. The victim of
the knife is said to keep a "swipes
joint" at his house. Two men went
into the house early in the evening and
purchased, it is alleged a quantity of
the liquor and took it away with
them. Returning later very much in
toxicated, they asked for drink which
was refused them. They insisted when
the owner of the place ordered them
out. A fight ensued in which the
householder was cut with a knife.
Captain Parker was summoned and had
the injured man removed to the
Queen's Hospital. One of the men in
the fight was placed under arrest and
the other one will probably be cap
tured today. The knife has not been
found. It is not known whether the
stabs are dangerous. Two of the cuts
were very slight and one penetrated
the side fully two inches.
The principal business streets of the
town presented an animated appear
ance on Saturday night. The shops
were crowded. So many people were
down town that the sidewalks over
flowed and there were several times
genuine blockades on Fort and King
and Hotel and Nuuanu.
All of Saturday evening there was
plenty of noise with horns and torpe-
was rather overdone. Some bombs were
thrown amongst the lei women on
Nuuanu and one firecracker set fire to
the clothing of Mrs. Ahlo. On account
of the fireworks alone a number of ar
rests were made.
For Wray Taylor.
Wray Taylor, leader, received a
handsome Christmas gift from the
members of the Amateur Orchestra.
Thiswiis a token of the esteem in which
the musicians hold Mr. Taylor as a
trainer and as a friend. He is the or
ganizer of the orchestra and has been
tireless in efforts for its benefit. The
present is a beautiful oaken music cab
inet, standing about seven feet. On an
oval shaped golden plate is the inscrip
tion: "Wray Taylor. From the Ama

IS A NAVAL
Dewey Will Not Talk of
FRIENDLY FEELING IS CROWING
Agitators and Their Admissions.
for Americans Germans.
MANILA, Dec. 1G. Rear Admiral
Dewey, when the correspondent of the
Associated Press called on him today,
was courteous and pleasant, but abso
lutely declined to discuss the political
situation in the Philippines, on the
ground that his sphere was purely nav
al. He then proceeded to cross-examine
the correspondent about every
thing ashore. He was glad to learn
that the insurgents were releasing the
sick Spanish'soldiers they held as pris
oners, notwithstanding Aguinaldo'a
grandiloquent refusal to do so. This
proves that the insurgents are very
conciliatory, in spite of their defiant
talk. Admiral Dewey always believed
that the insurgents were friendly, es
pecially since the warships of our fleet
have visited the different ports of the
islands, and since some of our officers
have made tours inland, carefully in
vestigating popular sentiment and ju
diciously preaching the gospel of a
peaceful settlement everywhere, with
highly satisfactory results. A few in
fluential Filipinos, in ambition for
self-advancement, are clamoring for
Independence, though .unable to realize
its true meaning.
They are utterly ignorant of the dif
ference between the name and reali
ty. Agitators here invariably admit
they would be unable to stand with
out American protection, but in spito
of this, they continue their meaning
less outcry for independence and may
possibly create trouble. Admiral Dew
ey, however, believes this to be im
probable at the present juncture,
though every trifling incident counts.
However, every day that passes with
out a conflict means so much gained,
because friendly feeling is steadily in
creasing, the incipient roughness dis
appearing and agitators are weakening.
The newspapers of Manila are doing
particularly valuable work in simulta
neous publications of conciliatory ar
ticles printed in Spanish and in Eng
lish. This course is looked upon as
being certain to eliminate the friction
which has existed here.
The admiral is greatly interested in
the movement among the American
volunteers to obtain their discharge
here and engage in pioneer enterprises
He believes there is a practically un
limited field for planters, farmers and
miners here, as to the suggestion that
if the natives prove to be obstreperous,
perhaps they might be handed over to
Germany or other ungentle land
grabbers, the admiral said he be
lieved the Germans now, have en
tirely abandoned their designs in
the Philippine islands, though for
merly, he said, the German attitude
here had cause him indescribable anx
iety. According to recent information
received here, Filipinos insurgents are
endeavoring to maintain a brave show
for the purpose of securing the best
terms possible from the Americans.
It is the opinion of our admiral that
it would be advisable for the United
States to pay the insurgent troops their
arrears ot wages, i ne wnoie amount
would be a comparatively trifling sum,
and the payment of the troops would
have a valuable effect, and may save .
incalculable trouble. Admiral Dewey
was strongly convinced that the P'ili
pino insurgents deserve acknowledg
ment. He is a believer in the prac
ticability of liberal measures in the
direction of local autonomy.
Regarding the possibility of interna
tional complications. Admiral Dewey
said: "Prior to the arrival of the
monitors I felt uneasy, but now I am
ready to hold this position against the
