Washington, D. C, Dee. 4. s
All of the members oi the California
delegation are here ready for the session
of Congress except Senator Perkins and
Representative Hilborn. Perkins is ex
pected to-night. Senator White arrived
at the Kormandie Hotel, with Mrs. White
and children, this morning. Senator
White said to-night that he bad no regu
ular programme planned out for this ses
sion of Congress.
"The main thing," said he, "will be the
fight against the annexation of Hawaii,
and this will begin early in the session
and continue as long as need be. As long
as I can talk and a? long as my fellow-
Senators who are also opposed to annexa
tion have the physical endurance, just so
lone will the debate continue. These sun
porters who think thai annexation will
We accomplished easily are very much mis
taken."
Senator Pettigrew of X rth Dakota also
arrived to-night fro the P-icific Coast,
and Senator White relies on his assistance.
Representative Loud has taken quarters
at the Everett for himself, wife and daugh
ter. He said to-night: "I have blocked
out no programme for this winter. Nat
urally my work as chairman of the Com
mittee on offices and Post Roads wiil
occupy a good deal of my attention. I
shall, try to secure an appropriation for
the rem val of Shag and Arch rocks in
the harbor of ban Francisco, and an ap
propriation of. $12,000 to $15,000 for Red- j
.^f wood Creek, if there is to be a river and i
▼ harbor appropriation bill passed this ses- j
Asion. Rut 1 doubt whether there will be j
any, as Chairman Cannon of the Appro- '
priation Committee is opposed to it, and '
has said so to tne President, as I under- j
stand*
One of the mattery to claim my atten- J
tion will be the establishment of a free- !
Olivary system in Satita Clara County.
which the Pustoffice Department has
• designated as ihe ideal location for rural
f delivery experiments. I will endeavor to
extiedite work on the San Francisco Po-t-
Ofiice building, and with this purpose in
v .e.w called on the Assistant Secretary of
the Treasury to-day and urged that the
"-specifications and plans for the super
structure be rustied and me bids ad
vertised. •_■,'.:
'As lor those life-saving stations at
; Point Arena and Point Bonita, there is
nothing more that can be done. They
have both been authorized by Congress.
The sundry civil appropriations bill ap
propriates a lump sum for light and lite
stations, and the Treasury Department is
supposed to set aside the sums to be ex
pended at each place. There l- no reason
• why these stations should not be con
structed at both Point Arena and Point
Bonita. I will see what I can do at the
Treasury Department and will do it im
mediately."
Mr. Loud said he had no recommenda
tion for .Federal appointments in con
templation. He was evidently very much
gratified over the appointment of Dawson
.. as Drug Inspector at San Francisco in
stead ol Dr. Tufts of Sacramento to suc
ceed Kern, the incumbent; Senator Per
kins had recommenced Tufts, a kinsman
of Congressman de Vries, and it was re
garded as settled thing that Tufts would
w be appointed, but Loud at the last mo
-1 ment defeated Perkins.
Representative Barham is at the F-ibitt
House. He said to-night there was not
much use in poshing the Nicaragua canal
bill,, bis pet hobby, until after the com
mission had submitted its report to Con-
gress. *
Barlow (the Populist) talks loudly abouf
what he will do in case tbe Secretary of
War does not carry out the San Pedro
project. He also wants a breakwater at
Port Harford, and has a bill for refunding
to settier9 the $200 excess payments made
on each quarter section of land. He will
endeavor to secure money for improve
ments at the Santa Monica Soldiers'
H-ime.'
Dr. Castle will introduce a bill to pro
vide for impounding water for purposes
of navigation; also bills to abolish na
tional banks and to secure the independ
ence of Cuba.
Representative Maguire has arranged
no programme for himself, bin will, as
usual, be content to deal in glitt Tin; gen
eralities, such as opposition to the Pacific
roads.
Congressman D? Vries will urge at this
session the creation of a "department of
mines and mining." He will also uge
p ssage of the "mineral lands b:ll," He
thinks that the limits of Yosemite Park
should he chanced. It is too large. A
Commission should be appointed to in
vestigate "the need for new roads in the
park. DeVrif-s will try to secure $100.
--000 to $1.5,000 :or a new public building at
Stockton.
Mr. DeVries says: "1 intend making a \
strong fight to secure the pas-age o! my
mineral lands bill. lam a member of the
Public- Lands Committee, and will try tc
have a favorable report in the House at
an early date. Regarding the proposed
dam for which Congress ha« already made
an appropriation of $500,000, the Govern
fnentengineera have not as yet submitted
Ittieir report to the Secretary of War, and
V site has therefore be?n chosen, but it
1 generally thought thai it will be
l\cited at Point D^gnerr- on Yuba i
inker. I. will also try to have passed
a resolution providing for a commission
to locate roads in Yosemite National Park
and to try to have the limits of the park
• cut down. I intend asking increa-ed ap
propriations for dredging and other im
provements for the Sacramento and San
Joaquin rivers. I am opposed to extend
= ing the Pacific roads' debt and am ready
' to fight any scheme mat looks like re
i lunding. Judtre Maguire, who is a mem
erof'ih.!* Pacific Roids Committee, will
'be our leader in this tight, and I suppose
bhe delegation will map out a plan of
. ainpaign."
WHY SWANSON
IS OPPOSED TO
ANNEXATION
CLAUDE A. SWANSON, M. C.
Call Office, Riggs House
Washington, Dec. 4. \
THE CALL correspondent requested Hon. Claude A. Swanson of
Virginia to express for THE CALL his views on the proposed annexa
tion of Hawaii. Mr. Swanson is one of the brightest of the younger
men in the House of Representatives. As a member of the Ways and
Means Committee he is one of the leaders of the minority. Repre-
sentative Swanson consented and prepared the following :
WASHINGTON, Dec. 4.— 1 have care
fully considered the proposition made for
the annexation of Hawaii, and am bitterly
opposed to the scheme. I can readily see
how it would be advantageous to the
islands, hut am at a loss to see how any
good can accrue to the United States from
annexation. I am opposed to the policy
of the United States annexing an island
about 2000 miles from her shores. In the
time of war its possession would be a
source of weakness instead of strength.
It would require an immense navy to pre
serve it if we were engaged in hostilities
with any hrst-c'as* power. Much of our
navy being at there islands to afford pro
tection to them, would to that extent
lessen the real defense to the Pacific Coast.
It is ridiculous to suppose that ships 2000
miles from the coast could afford any de
fense or protection to the coast. Thus, to
my mind, possession of these islands in
time of war, with the obligation upon us
to protect and defend them, would be a
source of weakness in defending the Pa
cific Coast, instead of strength.
I am opposed to the inception of a
policy of acquiring islands which will ne
cessitate a greatly increased navy ta prop
erly defend them. The moment that
these islands become a part of our terri
tory will witness appropriations for a
greatly increased navy, because it had as
well be understood that annexation will
necessarily create the necessity for an in
creased navy. An increased navy means
a great increase of taxation. The Federal
Government, already having an annual
expenditure of over half a billion of dol
lars, cannot afford to further add to this
without imposing burdens upon the peo
ple which will paralyze trade and in
dustry.
The expenditure that the Government
must incur to be prepared to defend these
islands and to give them a good system of
government would far exceed anything
that tins Government would ever receive
from them in the shape of taxes or of
wealth to our people.
The people of the islands are already
overburdened with taxation and debt to
support their present Government. Their
public debt, amounting to a large sum for
so small a country, must be assumed by
this Government. The proposition sim
ply means taxin? and imposing burdens
upon the people of this country for the
benefit of these islands, without any cor
responding benefit to us whatever. We
have already, in remitting duties upon
sugar, given to the people of these islands
enough to purchase every acre of land in
them.
I am opposed to a policy which will !
greatly tax the people of this country
simply to possess a beautiful but useless
toy like Hawaii. Besides the annexation j
will be but the beginning of tbe acquisi- j
tion of other territory of this kind. It >
will not be long before people with j
schemes to serve will be advocating that i
this country acquire other lands in the ;
south seas or in the Orient. It will be i
claimed that the acquisition of these
will be necessary for the safe protection of j
Hawaii. Thus the scheme when once j
commenced will go on until this country
becomes loaded down with islands and
territory of this kind. This policy is for- ,
eign to the genius of our people and must ;
result in much detriment and loss.
These islands onca possessed .ny us !
make us at once interested in and affected
by the political affairs of China, Japan
and other countries of the Orient. Here
tofore we have not been in the least af
fected by the political revolutions of tne j
older countries. The moment we acquire j
t hese islands we will begin to watch with
apprehension the growth of any great '
naval power in the Orient. We will by I
degrees become parties to the political af- I
fairs of those countries. This can result
n no benefit to us and can only bring
'calamity.
Wisdom demands that, we should
strictly adhere to the traditions of our
fathers and confine our territory to our
natural and contiguous boundaries. I
view with deep apprehension the least de
parture from this policy.
The possession of thee islands, creating
for us jealousies in Japan, China and
other countries of the Orient, will make
us lose far more in trade than can be ac
quired. Also most of the labor of these
islands beingeervile Japanese and Chine c
must before long embroil us in misunder
standings with these two countries iv ml
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 5. IS9T.
erence to their treatment there and their
right to come into the United States from
there. I am opposed to reopening this
question, which has been set led.
Beside* all this the inhabitants of the
islands ar? not such as are desirable to be
incorporated into our Government. Of
their inhabi'anls only about 3000 are
Americans, while the residue are natives,
Japanese, Portuguese and Chinese, all of
whom are thoroughly unsuit»d for citizen
ship. It wouid he more than a century
before these people could be educated and
civilized so they could be vested with
citzenship.
Thus annexation would mean either the
prolongation of territorial government
with all of the local affairs controlled
from Washington or cisc the admission
into this Union of these islands as a State.
I am opposed to this country acquiring
any tertiory which is not intended very
soon to be formed and admitted as a State
into the Futon. For territor al govern
ment besides being unsatisfactory to the
people of the territory is pernicious to the
Federal Government. The admission of
Hawaii as a State simply mean* the addi
tion of a rotten borough to statehood, with
two Senators controlled absolutely by the
few persons who control the sugar inter
ests of these island". This would be a
great wrong upon the other great States
of the Union and can but be injurious to
the best interests of our country. 1 favor
the formation of no more rotten boroughs
into States.
Thus I can see no Dractical benefits
which would come from annexation, but I
see much that is objectionable and which
is fraught with gieat expense and possi
bilities of much loss to this country.
Sentiment and reel are the two forces
which favor annexation.

FALLACIES OF THE
X-RAY PHOTOGRAPHS
Objects Not Accurately Shown
if Hidden From the
View.
Obliqueness That Causes Glaring
Inaccuracies Which R-.qure
Seme Revision.
Special Dispatch to Inn CALI. '•*
BOSTON, Dec. 4 —X-ray pictures are
| fallacious; that is, X-rays do not picture
an object accurately if that object be hid
i den from view, and more particularly if it
| is conceale I in the human body. I'„ seems
i odd that this peculiarity has not bien dis
i covered before in the tremendous devel
[ opments of the X-ray photography. Out it
is so. The first person to nmk* this im
portant discovery— for its importance in
legal and medical matters will be seen at
a glance— is a Boston physician, Dr. Ed
ward A. Tracy of South Boston. Dr.
t Tracy demonstrates the fallacies of the X
; ray pictures in a manner which admits of
I no doubt, and that is by X-ray pictures
| themselves. He says:
"The indiscriminate admission of the
X-ray photographs would be wrong. Their
j use : s evidence injury is only safe when
. certain conditions have been fnlfi led in
; taking and presentation. The reason lor
j the distortion in the X-ray pictures is
I that tne rays emanated from a point, and
j are therefore not taralel. To read cor
rectly the lessen of X-ray pictures the
j obliqueness of X rays must be kept in
j mind and mental correction made for the
• disproportion and distortion caused by
' the obliqu ness. X rays properly used
are as a searchlight in the exposition of
bone lesions. But the lesions must be
pictured from different directions and the
resultant i iclures compared with pictures
of the normal opposite member. More
over, the pictures of the Injured member
and the opposite normal member must be
I taken with the same relative po-ition of
the Crookes tube and the limb and the
sensitized plate. Tnen can truth be ar
rived at, and truth is essential to justice."

PARIS, Dec 4.— By a singular coinci
dence, while it is being claimed that
Dreyfus may possibly be the victim of a
miscarriage of justice the Court of Cassa
tion yesterday began a r.-vision of the
case of Prene Vans and Jean Petit, who
died >n penal servitude while undergoing
a sentence of twenty-five years' deporta
tion in Guiana tor incendiarism, alleged
to have been perpetrated as far back as
1843. The crime has been since traced to
another parly, and the children of the
condemned men, one of whom is a deputy,
now demand an indemnity of 100,003
francs from the Government.
Mme. Rico, ex-Princess de Chircay, has
brought the Paris police down upon book
sellers and other tradesmen who have
carried on a thriving trade in indecent
photographs. It appears that last year
Clara Ward contracted with Reutlinger,
the famous photographer, for the sale of
her portrait in poses, plus ou moms
plastiques.
By un agreement which was read in
court the artist undertook to pay her a
royalty of -'•"> pet cent on every photo
graph sold. The photographs sold by
thousands, but the authorities intervened,
seized all the copies found in shops, and
also made a strict search among photo
graphs kept for sale. The result was sur
prising. The portraits of Mme. Rino
were pronounced not indecent, as they
were all taken in tights, but the search
brought to light a .quantity of photo
graphs of a scandalous character. Con
sequently it was deeded to prosecute all
tradesmen possessing photographs in
puris nattiralibus.
The terrible catastronhy at the Bazaar
de la Charite has indirectly contril.u.id
largely to the French treasury. The num
ber of wealthy people who perished in the
disaster was, as everyone remembers,
very large, and the amount of succession
duty pai I on their estates during tbe
past n oat 1 amounted to no less than
2, C00. 000 francs.
The annual valuation of the wine crop
of 1897 has just been issued in France.
The crop is estimated at 32.351,000 hecto
litres, or a decrease of 12,305,000 hectolitres
compared with the crop of 1896. and 126*,
--000 hectolitres below the average of the
last ten years.
Sculptor Fiemiet is working on a co

TRIED TO KILL
HIS PARENTS
Young Alfred Howe
Made Three Attempts
at Murder.
But the Accused Declares He
Cannot Remember His
Strange Acts.
Believes it Is a Case of Walking in
His Sleep and Glv^s Soma
experiences.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
BOSTON, Dec. 4.— There is a singularly
mysterious attempted murder case in
Lowell — one of the most remarkable al
leged patricides on record. Alfred Howe,
19 years old, charged with an attempt to
kill his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Edward A.
Howe, at their home, '267 Appleton street,
last nip hi, is locked up at the police sta
tion. Three attempts to end the lives of
Mr. and Mrs. Howe in their house, it is
alleged, have been made within a week.
When the assault was reported to the po
lice it was alleged that silverware wag
stolen and thai the assailant and thief
had escaped by a rear window.
Mr. and Mrs. Howe are both heavily in
sured. They haven't an enemy in the
world. Mr. and Mia. Howe visited Thurs
day night a neighbor. Their son returned
to the house before the arrival of his pa
rents. Mrs. Howe led the way into the
parlor ani Mr. Howe was about lighting a
match when he heard his wife scream,
Mr. Howe while going to his wife's as
sistance, was struck on the head with a
mallet and rendered almost unconscious.
The police were summoned. Mrs. Howe
had been stabbed twice in the back with a
bradawl. She is very low and has not
been informed of her son's arrest. Mr.
Howe's wounds are in the forehead.
It is said by the police that near the
close of his examination tbe son said if
he had committed the offense the silver
ware might be found hidden in the wood
pile. Tne police found the silverware
there. The young man was then locked
vi- on a charge of attempt to kill.
El ward A. Howe, father of the young
man, said: "A week ago, upon lettiruin
from another room, my wife found the
gas turned on at the foot of our ted, but
not lighted. 1 was in ted nt the time.
The room was dart and I heard a resiling
noise on the floor. Monday night of this
week my wile found on waking the gns
e-caping. When we opened the door and
windows tie found a cap had been re
moved. My son was threatened by a
New York firm recently it he did not send
them some money lor services performed
in placing his invention on the market, I
never knew of my son walking in bis
sleep. He was partly dressed when be
came downstairs Thursday night."
Alfred Howe, the accused, says: "I have
walked in my sleep, I believe, as 1 have
found my clothing changed from the
place where I put it. It is possible that I
lell asleep when reading in the parlor: It
1 did, I may have walked in my sleep and
hid the silverware. I felt an influence
come over me before I told the pole. 1 ihat
the silverware might be found, in the
woodpile. 1 have thought it over, but I
cannot belieVe that any influence could be
exerted to lead me to assault ray parents.
| I have given some attention to spiritual
ism and hypnotism. I have not been
hypnotized since my cousin tried to, but
he did not succeed. I watcbe 1 a hypnotist
in Boston and determined I could repeat
the experiment."

SAN JOSE, Dec 4.— Professor C. W.
Chads, one of the prominent horticul
turists of the county and an active mem
ber of the Grange, has 31 t completed the
work of gathering statistics on this year's
crop of prunes in Santa Clara County. In
round numbers he says the county has
produced this year 50,000,000 pounds, and
that is but half a crop, as against 37,000,000
pounds last year. lie says these prunes
are selling for % cent more on the pound
than any other prune? in the market.
The total annual consumption ot prures
in the United States at present is 70.000.
--000 pounds. With the rapid expansion of
orchards in the county, he says, it will be
but a short tune until ibe annual output
of prunes from the orchards here will
reach 100,000,000. Eren with no addi
tional orchards, those now out, but not
vet in bearing, will at maturity produce
100.00J.000 annually. At the present tate
of consumption in the United States this
will leave a surplus of 30. 000, 00 J pounds
annually. He believe- the Anier.can con
sumption can be greatly increased by
distributing the prunes properly in the
