These items would naturally come un
der several committees, and to look aft
er them will take much time within the
next few days should Wilcox come to
town. If he does not. It will remain for
the members of Congress who are
friendly to the Islands to take up the
fight.
One of the peculiar measures which
have been Introduced in the Congress
at this session is the bill which was
prepared by Wilbur F. Crafts, secre
tary of the Reform Bureau here. Crafts
feels called upon to reform the world
and gets Into everything which has an
opening for an ambitious man looking
for openings into business which might
be said to be other people's. His bill
found as sponsor in the House, Little
field of Maine and In the Senate was
presented by Lodge of Massachusetts.
The bill must be seen to be appreciated
and may be best introduced by this
resolution, which emanated from Mr.
Lodge:
Resolved. That in the opinion of this
body the time has come whea the prin
ciple, twice affirmed In international
treaties for Central Africa, that native
races should be protected against the
destructive traffic in intoxicants should
be extended to all uncivilized peoples
by the enactment of such laws and the
making of such treaties as will effectu
ally prohibit the sale to aboriginal
tribes and uncivilized races of fire
arms, opium, and intoxicating beverages.
The bill is entitled, A Bill to Prohibit
the Sale of Firearms, Opium and In
toxicants to Aboriginal Tribes and Na
tive Races in the Pacific Islands, and
follows:
Be It enacted by the Senate and
House of Representatives of the United
States of America in Congress assem
bled. That If any American citizen sells,
gives or otherwise supplies to any abo
riginal native of any island In the Pa
cific Ocean any ,wlne, spirits, or any
other Intoxicating liquor, he shall, on
conviction thereof, be liable to a penal
ty not exceeding fifty dollars, and in
default of payment shall be liable to
imprisonment for a period not exceed
ing one month; and for any offense sub
sequent to the first conviction the of
fender shall be liable to a doubled fine
of one hundred dollars, with Imprison
ment for pot less, than one month nor
more than eleven months.
Sec. 2. That commanders of all naval
vessels and revenue cutters are hereby
appointed justices of the peace for the
trial of such cases whenever permanent
courts can not conveniently be availed
of. . .
Sec. 3. That If it shall appear to the
court that such wine or spirits have
been given bona fide for medical pur
poses it shall be lawful for the court
to dismiss the charge.
Llttlefield says that he did not mean
to reach Hawallans, but the bill must
be amended.. As it stands, it would
make It Impossible for Col. Parker or
Prince David when they next come to
ments . to foreign services. Chamber
lain has been-in the Treasury service
for many years and was an applicant
for the place when it was created. He
was when named in the Customs de
partment in Cuba and his transfer will
take place at once. .Mr. Chamberlain
Is one of the most thorough men in the
service and will be an addition to offi
cial corps. He Is an Iowan of many
years and his home now Is at Clarinda,
Page county.
to the sugar industry, he recommends
that the station to be established by
this Department give its attention to
other agricultural Interests. Among the
subjects which require special attention
are the culture of fruits and vegetables,
coffee growing, stock raising, dairying,
irrigation, forestry, and ' diseases of
plants. .
WASHINGTON, D.y C, Dec. 7.
Among the new legislation which will
be enacted by the present Congress is
outlining of the plan for public im
provements by the Federal Government
in the Hawaiian Islands. Of the many
appropriations asked none will be more
important than that providing for the
establishment of a Naval station. The
estimates submitted by the Secretary
of the Treasury include an appropria
tion of $200,000 for that purpose.
The House Committee on Naval Af
fairs today completed its organization.
which was broken Up by the illness of
Congressman Boutelle of Maine, who
for many years was its head. Congress
man Foss of Illinois, one of the rising
young, members, was chosen chairman.
Mr. Foss has been one of the consist
ent friends of all Hawaiian measures
and there is no danger that whatever
is needed for the Naval station, which
certainly will be established, will meet
with opposition in the committee. One
of the most prominent members of the
Naval Committee is Henry C. Louden
slager of New Jersey, who will be re
membered as one of the members of the
party of legislators who visited Ha
waii four years ago. Mr. Loudenslager
has followed the course of legislation
very closely and expresses great grati
fication at the success which has at
tended the plans of the friends of the
Islands. While he would not discuss
the plans of his committee, he said to
day that there was not a member of
the committee who in his opinion would
oppose any appropriation needed for
the establishment at Honolulu of a Na
vai Biauon sucn as nas peen recom
mended by the Navy Department. On
the contrary, he said the most friendly
reeling was evident in the committee
toward Hawaii and the prospects that
tne appropriation would be Inserted In
the Navy bill.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Dec. 7. The
Secretary of Agriculture in his annual
report to Congress has much of Inter
est on the general subjects of the suc
cessful Introduction of new things agri
cultural but Indicates that he wants
more money for the successful work In
Hawaii. He lays stress upon the intro
duction into the Islands of general
farming and diversification of prod
ucts. There is now in press a work on
the irrigation systems of the Islands
of the group. Of the Experiment Sta-
uou me secretary says

is, up to the present, still lacking. It

Sir Clements Markham; but its having
