THE AIOTiyiyg TIMES, fTMTKSDAY, JUNE 17, 1897.
HOT W1YECTR1KES GIMP Soldier Boys Feel the Effect of the Excessive Beat. DRILLS TRYING ON THE VEN Six Cases o Sickness Treated in the Hospital Third Seven Thun der Storm Visits Cnnip-l-'icUe-in the Gmud IIou Camp Will He Broheii Saturday Morning:. At Camp Washington today the friends ot Company C, Fourth Dattaliim, andCom pany D, Fifth Battalion, will hays an op portunity to witness guard mount by these companies. The former will be posted us exterior guard at 8 o'clock, and the Litter as provost guard at -1:30 o'clock The daily drills and parade will be Ah usual, unless the heat "be excessive, wlin some portion of the day's duties will be. omitted. The drills or yesterday were exceedingly trying on the men, and the afternoon extended order instruction of companies was curtailed somewhat, on ac count or the intense heat Company C, First Separate Battalion, eoloied, put up a good guard mount at 8 o'clock, and Company C, Fifth liattnlion. perfoimod well the ceremony for exterior guard in the afternoon. At tho first drill call, 9 o'clock, all the officers In uimp reported to Capt.. Con stantino Chase, Fourth United States Ar tillery, -who put them through a course of Instruction In the extended order drill for an hour and a. halt For the time being, captains and ! ntenant-i became corporali nnd privates, and Major Simon son became temporarily a sergeant for a squad. The drill was an Instructive one, and at its rinish the officers put their companies through the "sprouts" for an additional hour and a half The drills were credit able, and will probably be repeated today Flans for the field day have not yet been formulated, nor has it !een decided Just at wluit boar camp will be broken, though It will probably -be In the forenoon of Saturday. A large number of visitors were in cmp yesterday and weut over to the parade ground to witness dress parade, which was commanded by Col. Cecil Clay. Lieut Col Urcll again commanded the Second Regiment The camp of instruction of the brigade for 1S97 will be remembered as the most soldierly, most orderly, and most instruc tive of those heretofore held. Tile army offirers detailed for duty with the brigade have taken an unusual interest In nur -various duties, and the men have shown n commendable zeal and anxiety to learn any and everything pertaining to the duties of a soldier. The camp is always quiet and orderly after taps, and it is the rarest thing to be obliged to order lights out. The order compelling men to we.ir coats buttoned at all times when out of company streets Is well observed, and the men in consequence when oft duty present a far better appearance -than thoy would otherwise The improvement In drill and discipline has been particu larly marked, and the duties of sentinels have been better performed than ever before. The reluctance of the men to go through the long extended-order drill of the morn ing was the cause of several clashes lie twecn the officers and men. In Company D, Second Battalion, three privates skipped the drill, and were later ordered by Capt Stutz to march up and down the company streets for fifteen minutes carry ug a etick of wood in place of the musket. At first this was legarded as a joke by the culpritF, but later, when a small crowd gathered to -watch their promenade, they grew tired, and two of them refused to continue Capt. Stutz at once ordered a cciporal and guard to convey the recalci trants to the guardhouse There was some -iiuestlon as to whether Capt. Stutz did not exceed the limit of his powers in imposing such n penalty, and upon the matter being Tef erred to Col May, the officer of the day, he informed Capt Stutz that the penalty was a somewhat too severe one. He also stated to Capt. Stutz that matters of that kind should properly be referred to the major of the battalion. AttJ.e request of Capt Stutz the two dls obediert privates were released. The intense heat of the day furnished more work for the hospital corp than at any time jdnce the opening of the camp. Fix cases were treated at tho hospir.nl, all of them being more or less the result of the heat. Capt. Clarence V. Sayrc, of Company C, Firth Battalion, is one of the patients, and he Is being treated Tot bowel complaint. Corp. Roliert L. Murch, Company D, Firth Battalion, was treated for chills and dis charged. Trlvate A. Burga, Company C, First Battalion, and Sergt. Sncerten, also. of CompanvC,Firrt Batallon, were treated for bowel complaints. Private Martin Me Dmiels, or the IlospUal Corps, was treated Tor gastritis, and discharged. Sergt. W P. Keane, Company C, or the Engineer Bat talion, was treated for weakness, and also dhrharged. Surgeon General Henderson, in his daily report, stated that the sanitary condi'Jon of the camp was excellent, and that, with one or two minor cai-cs of neglect tn caring for the sinks, he had no fault to find. The food, he stated, was wholc-orae and good. The bridge over the ravine which hi.s been under course of -construction by the Engineer Battalion for two days, was finished today. It is censidered an ex cellent example of military engineering. This morning a battalion will be matched over the Mructure on a double-quick, in order to test Its strength. The spans or the bridge are 30 feet in length, 2G feet high, and the roadbed 0 feet in widUi. The tamd is improving dally, if there is room for any sucli thing. Its music pos sesses the swing and cadence so necessary to the march, and the members are to be congratulated on their very creditable -work The music Is always a source of favorable comment by the visitors to the camp. For the third .successive day the camp -was visited by a furious thunderstorm early last evening. The electric displav was especially brilliant and the ra'nfall was also heavy. The roads through the camo are consequently in an exceedingly bad condition. "Lieut. J Bruce "Webb, quartermaster nnd acting commissary of the Second Eat tulton has returned to camp. "Whispering Bill Thompson, of Company B, First Battalion, arrived In camp yester day. Joe "Konflrup, of Company C, Tlist Bat . talion, has letumed to camp after a leave of one day. Mr Thmlel L. TJ.

Sunt Poreijrn Relations Committee Stands by the President. Man3' very wealthy merchants of Phila delphia and New Tork failed to smash the slate or the President for the place of minister to Haiti. The choice of the Presi dent is Mr. W F. Tow ell, colored, of .New Jersey, whose preferment is said to be In great measure due to the friendly of fices of Senator SewelL The objection to the nomination was that a white man could fill the place more acceptably to the commeiclal inter ests of the United States, Haiti and San llomlosro. Their specific leasons for this opinion were put in writing at the re quest of SecretaryShemian, an d committees have urged these views on the Pjesldent and the Committee on Foreign "Relations. This committee gave a hearing yesterday to a committee consisting of J. C. Baldwin, II. R. Kuhnhardt, Perclval Thousas, Thomas II. Messenger, Charles EbeL Joseph Ix Stevens and "W. r.

Stories of Intemperance Alleged to Have Been Inspired by Per sonal Animosity The Testimony of n Hotel Clerk Submitted'. Commander Dennis Mullon, United States Navywas placsd on trial before a general court-martial at the Washington navy yard yesterday afternoon. The charges on 'which he is beiug tried are those of intoxication on and off duty, while the ac cused was serving as commandant of the Pensnoola navy yard, during the summer aud fall or 188C and the ensuing winter of '8G and '87. The flr.r charge or Intoxication orf duty contains seven speciricatlona alleging specific cases of intoxication at the Eh carnbia notol at Pensacola, aud on the cars of the Pensacola Traction Company. The second charge, that of iutoxicatiou on duty, contains six specificat ons alleging specific cases of Intoxication at the Pcif&a oola navy yard. It Is charged that Commander Mullan i-.us under tne luiluenee of strong urmfc when he fsumed command of the navy yard, and that he was also under the iullucuce of liquor wheu he was relieved. One of the specifications of the econd charge alleges that the commander was intoxicated while entering the steam launch at the navy yard on au occasion duly specified. Tne deie.ise expects to prove that these charges are gioundless and incidentally may show that they were inspired by personal animosity. Tiie comiiosition of the court-martial Is: Juilg.; advocate, Lie-t. C. II. Laucitc-Imer, IT. S. M. C-, president or the court. Commo dore Charles S. Norton, commandant of Washington navy yard; Capt. John C Watson, U- S. N.; Capt. Silas W. fferry, U. S. N.; Capt. Francis J. Hlggiuson, Capt. Merrill Miller, U. 8. N.; Capt. William C. Wise, U. S. N; Capt. Purncll F. Har rington, U S. N- ludgc Advocate Laucheimer, of the of flce or judge ndvocate general, wasamong the early arrivals at the trial. Soon arter Commodore Norton came in, and the other officers arrived in good season. Most of them camo In civilian dress, but brought their unirorms In satchels and paper-wrapped cases Attorneys McCammon and Haydeu, coun sel Tor tlie accused, came early. Capt John Mullan, brother to Commander Mul lan, was with the attorneys, and displayed an arfectionate lntereht in the cause of his brother. Capt Mullan explained to the reporter for The Times that this court-mat Mai was ordered by the Secre tary of the Navy, at the earnest solicita tion of Commander Mullan, and certain coi ret-pondeiice which was read during the progress of the trial confirmul tills btate nient. Capt. Mullan stated that these htories of Intoxication bad been originated by a lot of women at the navy yard at Pen-sacola. The stories had been given considerable ciiculatlon, and a court of Inquiry had been ordered at theTensacoIa navy yard. But, said Capt John Mullan. the commander Is an applicant for pro motion to the rank of captain, and will soon apply for examination in consequence of the vacancies which will follow the re tirement of Admiral Brown. The com mander demanded that the charges against him be tried according to martial law, tli at there might be no stain upon his name or record. The accused entered the courtroom a few mluutes before 1 o'clock and sat with his counsel. He wore the full uniform of a commander, and bore himself mauf ully. He responded to questions in a firm and respectfnl manner, and evinced no trace of nervousness. Commodore Norton culled the court to order at 1:113. The cliarges and specifications were read, and as the Judge advocate turned to ask ths; accused to plead Attorney Hayden objected and presented a motion that sped ficatii.n No. 7 and charge No. 1 be stricken out on the ground that they were uncertain as to time and place. Attorney McCammon read from the rules and regulations of the Navy in support of tills motion. Tho judge advocate was ready with a mass of au thorities and arguments to prove that the specification was sufficiently exact as to time and place. A warm debate ensued between the prosecution and the defense on the ques tion of the exactitude of the specifi cation. Thecourtroom was ordered cleared of all but the judges while they should consider the motion made by the defense. After due consideration, Commodore Nor ton announced that the court had sustained the point niade by counsel for defense and that specification 7 and charge 1 would be stricken out. This specirica tion was that Commander Mullan had been seen intoxicated bj' a certain officer in the Navy. The time and place were not stated Then the judge advocate called upon the accused to plead and as each speci fication -was read, the accused responded "Not guilty." The judge advocate then read a letter addressed to him by the Navy Department, inclot-ing a letter written by Commander Mullan, requesting that a court-martial be called to try the accusations agalust him The judge advocate also read considerable corropoudence which pated between Sec retary Long, Commander Mullan and the attorneys of the latter, preliminary to the court-martial. The testimony of the following witnesses for the prosecution was then taken; Lieut. Bull.U. S.N .-Paymaster Jewett, U. S. N.; Dr Gorgas.TJ. S. A.; Lieut. Jervey, U.S. A.; Capt. Cotton, U. S. A.; Clerk Walter Atzinger, Mr. T. V. Kcssler, Di. Harris, U S. N. Judge Advocate Laucheimer then pro ceeded for the prosecution. Be began by reading the testimony that was taken by the court of inquiry which was heldat Pen sacola. First came the testimony bearing upon specification No 1 of chargeNo. 1. It was the testimony of Clerk Cecil Maddox, of the Escambia Hotel. Florida. Jdaddox testified that Mullan waslntoxlcatedat the hotel and had .a whisky breath. As to the second specificatlqn, the testlmonvof Henry E. Jewett. passed assistant paymaster on duty at the Pensacola navy yard at the time when Commander Mullan was com mandaut there, was read. He had seen the accused Intoxicated .at the Escambia Hotel. The court-martial was adjourned at 2 o'clock .to meet at 10 o'clock this morn- j lng. Stabbed During a Figlit.

No Hraucli Store in "WnhlnKton. the Harrison Administration. This is the text or the article: ''The government of the Hawaiian Isl ands also cedes and transfers to the United States the absolute fee and ownership of all public, government or crown lands, pub lie buildings or edifices, ports, harbors, fortifications, military or naval equipments and all other iridic property of every klud and description belonging to the govern inent of the Hawaiian Isiauds,v together with everv riKht and'appurtennuce there unto appertaining. . "The esistiup layre of the United States relative to public land shall not apply to such lands in the Hawaiian Islands, but the Congress or the United States shall enact special laws foV their management and dl-pt-fiition: Provided, that all reve nue from or proceeds' of the same, except as regard? such' part thwof as may be n?ed or occupied for the civil, military or naval purposes of the United States or may be assigned to the use of the local government, shall be" used solely for the benefit of the inhabitants of the Hawaiian Islands, for educational and other public purposes." The most Important difference between the proposed treaty and that negotiated hy Mr. Uarritoa is In ajtide 3. The Har riHoa convention required the appointment of a commissioner by the President, who .should be confirmed by the Senate. This commissioner was to have power to veto any net ot Hawaiian government, and "an act disapproved by him shall thereupon be void aud of no effect, tinier approved by the President " This provision is stricken out and tho vetoing power is placed entirely in the President's hands. He is required to pass upon all acts passed by the Hawaiian legi lature. This article provides that Hawaii sluill be a Territory of the United States. The existing laws in Hawaii are to remain In force subject to the authority of the United States, until Congress, as soon as possible art'-r the ratirication or treaty, bhall extend to the Hawaiian islands the laws of the United States. That portion of this article in the oU Harrison treaty relating to the commercial relations of Hawaii with the United States and foreign countries, and the foreign relations of Hawaii with foreign countries, Is entirely stricken out. The article In the nivr treaty is so worded as to mafcear rangenients for keeping intact the com mercial relations of Hawaii with the rest of the world until Congress shall take action. Consular representatives of foreign powers in Hawaii -will secure exequatcurs from the United States. Article 4 of the treaty is practically as follows: "The fui tiler immigration ot Chinese laborens Into the Ha waiiau Islands is her.iby prohibited until Congress shall otherwise piovide. Furthermore, Chinefce persons of the rowclasses now or hereafter excluded by law from entering the United states will not be permitted to come from the Ha waiian IMands to other parts of the United States, and if so coming .shall be subject to the same pcnaldes as if entering from a foscign country." By aiticle D the United States agrees to assume the public debt of Hawaii, "law fully existing at the date of exchange of ratification of treaty;" but the "liability of the United Statesin thisregaxd shallin no case exceed $-1 ,000,000." Former Queen Liliuokalani and the Prin cess JLaiaulanl were provided for in the Harrison treaty, the first to securer pen sion of $20,000 Junuallyduringlifcand the latter thelump iurn ot $150..000. Neither of thce prsonaisas is mentioned in the new" treaty. The last artlcleol the tieaty.proyldes that it. shall be ratified by the President of the United States bjy and .with the advice and consent of the Seua.te ou the. one .part and the government of Hawaiian Islaads on the other. The treaty does not yet contain the place of exchange of ratifications, tlUs point not ypt having been determined. Tho Japanese 'government has expressed to the .Stale HeparUnentits dissatisfaction with the treaty by making a provisional protest The Xapdiiese minister, when he called at the State Department, .said that he of course, did not .know .the pio vbJons in the proposed annexation treaty, or that they would infringe on the treaty .rights of the Japanese .government -with Highlands Sanitarium Medical Association, Offices po3 New York Ave. lDSt thoroughly equipped electrical and surgical outfit 1n the citr.

He merely desired to call the attention or this government to the fact that these treaty rights do exist, and the Japanese government will expect them to be recognized He alio spid this his country Is now en gaged in a controversy with Hawaii con cerning the Japanese treaty rights, and he desired to lenow if this government, should Hawaii be annexed, will assume the responsibility for the violation of the treaty with Japan by the Hawailans. The protest was more in the nature of an inquiry, but beneath it all Is an im plied threat that If Japan Is not accorded what she wants, bhe will insist by Torce, if necet-sary, to obtalu It. It is Lelieved that, when t he treaty is made public Japan will file a formal protest. Discussing the political lelatiuns of Hawaii In the United States, cx-llinister Thurston says: "A host of American itatesnm have favored the control ot Hawaii, among them Presidents l.Hmore, Pierce, Buchanan. Johnson, Grant. Arthur and Harrison, and Secretaries of State Web ster, lAgare. Huchauan, Clayton, ilarcy, Seward, Fish, Illaine and Foster, to say nothing ofv United States ministers and prominent Army and Naval officers. "With Hawaii in the hands of any hostile power, the only coaling station from Nicaragua to Hong Kong, and from San Frnncinco to Samoa, Avould be closed to American cruisers, anil made a center from which hostile descents could be made upon the Pacific coast, mid Its commerce de stroyed. With Ha wail in the control ot the United Suites the base ot supplies of a hostile naval force is thrown back to the entire width of the Pacific a practically piohlbitlve distance, as coal enough would have to l carried to fcteam vessels the Pacific and return, a disrance of from 7,000 to S.000 miles, to say nothing of coal consumption in operating on the Pacific coast, a quantity far beyond the -capacity or any wandiip in existence. American control or Hawaii Is, therefore, a practical insurance against naval attack on the Pamtic coast and on shipping in that vicinity." One or two of the expressions in Presi dent Harrison's letter transmitting the previous treaty are especially applicable at this time. Among other things Mr. Harrison said: "The imluenee and interest of the Uuited States in the islands must be increased and not diminished. Only two courses are now open; one the establish ment of a protectorate by the United States and the other annexation, full and complete. 1 think the latter course, which has been aoopted in the treaty, will be highly pro motive of the bChtinterests or the Hawaiian people, and is the only oue that will ade quately secure the iDterets of the "United States. These interests are not wholly selrish. It is essential that aone or the other great powers shall secure these islands. Such a possession would not consist ivith our safety nnd with the peace of the world. This view of the situation is so apparent and conclusive that no protect has been heard from any government against proceedings look ing to annexation!" "There is no doubt in my mind," said Senator Perkins of California, discusMog i the Hawaiian question, without regard to annexation, "that the present treaty with the Hawauans gives all the advantage to that people In 1876, when the treaty went into effect, they imported to this country 13,000 tonb of sugar. Under the influence of that treaty, which naturally lands all the Hawaiian sugars in this country, tlie pioductlon had increase Jast year to 227,000 tons, and there is every probabdity that, by next year, .this output of the Hawaiian Islands will .aggregate 300.000 tons. Nowherocansugarbe roiid so cheaply as in Hawaii, and every pound of it competes with the beet sugar or this country, and particularly that of the West "The conditions have changed wonder fully since that treaty was negotiated. 1 Every time our tarirfis changed ot modi fied, this treaty should be .modified to coriespond to it There may have been some pretext for the treaty In the first place, but tlie enorjmous increase of the Hawaiian sugar crop makes it Impossible for the United States to langei .donate this bounty of between eight and nine millions of dollars .annually. The expenses . .of our (Government are steadily increasing, and, wheji it Is a serious question where the .revenue J.s to come from to aieet them, we should not hesitate to curtail ; this donation in .some decree. "J believe ourtjatlej-elaUoas with Hawaii : ought to be maintained, but I also believe that the conditions aieed modification. The' Hawailans could not object ito the .impost-'' tion of a proportional part of tlie sugar dirties levied on other nugajs., assessed against them. Under the pending bill the luty on ugar similar to that which comes from Hawait is 11-2 cents a pound. I would put a duty on Hawaiian sugar of oriB-haLf.a cent.tipound.ar $10 a shortton. This would, on the .basis of the last year's importations, -net us a -revenue of $2, 227..000 ,and equalize, to some .extent, the one-sided .character of the present ar rangement. We need that revenue badly"" "How do the -people of California look ,! tuponthe treaty? Are theyan favor or op posed to it''' Air. Perkins was .asked "They are divided,"' rreplied JMr. Per kins. "The agricultural sections believc that the existence ot this treaty is atand 'hrg menace tntheir sugar-baetbusinesaud they -want the treaty abrogated aud a 'duty placed-upon the Hawaiian product lor their protection.
