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 greatly increased.

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 $40,000. 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 lichin? nml mittinsr into operation a uermanent hospital at Honolulu, a dispensary and all necessary ture and appurtenances for the tion, accornn odation indigent sick and THE CASE OF DR.

Under this construction all native Hawaiians have been cared for with out charge, while for others a charts has been made of from $1 to $3 per day. The bill making the appropriation for the hospital by the Government pro vides that no distinction shall be made as to race; and the Queen's Hospital trustees: are evidently up against a serious- proposition. Under the provisions of the Organic Act the Legislature has no power to give a subsidy to any institution and. under the construction likely to be placed by the Board of Health of the 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 force." 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. erty. The witnesses to the will were Sherman Evarts, Willoughby L. Webb and Joseph E. Haggerty. Burnham MofTat is named as executor. Dr. Coan does not practice medicine. He de votes himself to literature, and is at the head of the bureau for the revision of manuscripts. He lives at 67 East Fifty-fourth street. Mr. Moffat, when seen last night at the American Yacht Club, Rye, said: "Mrs. Coan parted from her husband about five years ago. I do not know the circumstances of the disagreement, but there was no scandal of any kind attaching to it nor was there a legal separation. They simply agreed to live apar' Mrs. Coan taking the two boys ..i her. Some time ago I did a little legal business for her, and it was that which led to her naming me as the ex ecutor of her win, The estate alto gether is not worth more than about $3,000, and it was natural. I suppose, that she should want her boys to have the whole of her money. She was a French woman, and that probably ac counts for the impulsive wording of the will." Dr. Coan was born in the Hawaiian Islands in 1841, and came to the Unit ed States in 1856. After graduating from Williams College he studied medi cine and was graduated from the Col lege of Physicians and Surgeons. He served two years in the navy under Admiral Farragut. as assistant sur geon, being at the battle of Mobile Bay. He has contributed many liter ary, critical and technical papers to various periodicals, and has published several books. He has written much on mineral springs, - to which he has given special study. HOME PRODUCTION We do not have to fortify our Beer, and Bottled Beer Delivered. Telephone MAIN 341. Orders Promptly R 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 Mrs. Foxwell and others would'wllllng ly testify by affidavit.
