No Statehood for Hawaii.
Delegate Wilcox of Hawaii, who is en
thusiastically advocating statehood for
the territory of Hawaii, is wasting his
time. Hawaii is not fit to become a state,
and it will be a long time, if ever, before
it will be so fitted. There is no evi
dence whatever to show ttyat Hawaii
would be better off as a state than as a
territory, while its expenses would be

The Legislature at its last session
made an appropriation for the Queen's
Hospital of $40,000, to be used in the
next biennial period. This was in line
with the previous policy of the Gov
ernment in making appropriation for
the hospital, similar appropriations
being made at the same time to other
like Institutions. There was, however!
one very peculiar incident In connection
with the appropriation made for the
Queen's Hospital. In the past the sum.
of $20,000 had always been given to the
hospital for the biennial period, and
Governor Dole recommended that the
Legislature make the usual appropria
tion. Instead that body appropriated
just, double the amount asked, or
Attached to the bill, however, was a
rider providing that no distinction
should be made as to race in the care
of patients at' the hospital. The appro
priation also was placed in the hands
of the Board of Health for proper pay
ment and the Board now finds itself
in a rather peculiar predicament.
The Queen's Hospital was founded in
1859 by their Majesties Kamehameha IV
and his consort Emma Kaleleonalani.
The hospital is organized as a corpora
tion and by the terms of its" charter the
board of trustees is composed of ten
members elected by the society and
ten members nominated by the Gov
ernment, of which the President of the
Republic (now Governor of the Terri
tory) shall be the presiding oflieer. The
charter also provides for thi "estab

intentions of the Legislature, the
Queen's Hospital must be placed under
the control of the Government before it
may receive the appropriation of $40,000.
"I can see no way out of the difheur
ty at present," said Secretary Smith
of th board of trustees for the Queen's
Hosj ttal when his attention was called
tn the matter yesterday afternoon. "The
hospital has been, receiving regular
stipulated amounts from the Govern
ment, generally $20,000 for each biennial
period. This year when the Governor
asked for -a statement of the condition
of the hospital's finances it was hand
ed to him, and he recommended that
the Legislature make the usual allow
ance. I do not know why they gave
us $40,000 instead of the usual amount.
There was a rider placed on the bill,
however, to the effect that no distinc
tion should be made as to race. The
appropriation was also placed in the
hands of the Board of Health. For
merly it was the custom for this money
to be placed into the hands of the Min
ister of Finance and by him paid over
quarterly directly to our treasurer.
Why the change was made at this time
I do not understand.
"I do not see myself how the hospital
could be placed in the hands of the
Government, even- if we wished to do
so. The Government now has ten
members upon the Board and also the
presiding officer. Under our charter we
are compelled to treat native Hawaii
ans free of charge, and I do not see
how it can be changed. Then again we
have in our hands $36,000 in trust funds
which cannot very well be given over
to the Government except in violation
of the terms of the trust. Taken all
around it is a very delicate question,
and it is to be hoped that it may be
settled without the loss of the appro
priation to the hospital. The hospital
now treats free all soldiers and sailors
and also the members of the police
The matter will be discussed at this
afternoon's meeting of the Board of
Health, though it is hardly likely that
the matter can be definitely settled at
this time. A joint meeting of the
Board of Health and the trustees of the
Queen's Hospital will probably be held,
at which the matter will be talked over
before final action is taken.

ENGLISH CLAIRVOYANT STORY.
Dr. Abraham Wallace, of Harley
street, relates a curious story concern
ing the death of-the late Mr. P. L. Fox
well, the .stock broker of Thames Dit
ton, whose body was found in the river
six weeks after his disappearance. On
the night before' he was missing Mr.
Foxwell visited his aged mother at
Finsbury Park, and the old lady's part
ing words were, "Oh, Percy, do take
care; I feel as if something is going
to happen to you tonight." The lectur
er explained that, being a lady inter
ested in psychic matters, Mrs. Foxwell
last year visited a clairvoyant, who
told her that she would be a widow
within twelve months After her hus
band's disappearance she consulted an
other clairvoyant, and, although not
possessed of psychic powers, she saw
in the crystal her husband's drowned
body. In the drawing room sit Ditton
Lawn some of the party wer; certain
that the dead man's spirit form was
present. Subsequently letters from the
dead man were read, and after his body
had been found a communication from
him was received in which he stated
that "as his dead body had been found,
he did not wish to have anyetaosh
he did not wish to give any further
particulars about himself, as It would
greatly upset his dear wife." In con
clusion, he said that nearly every one
of the incidents predicted by the clair
voyants had been verified a Met that
