that detection was impossible. The police would search tie vessels, but the sailors knew how to arrange the sacks, and the fugitives were rarely discovered. There has been no alteration in the laws since the establishment of the republic in Hawaii, and the treaty of annexation provides for a continuance of all municipal legislation not inconsistent with the constitution of the United States. "The Supreme Court, in the Arago case, decided that contracts to labor might be specifically enforced where the machinery is provided. According to this decision the present labor laws in Hawaii are not unconstitutional, and the interests of the sugar- planters, who are using modern machinery, would cause them to advocate their form of slavery, as did the cotton-planters of the South. It would seem to be an excellent argument in favor of introducing the same system now obtaining in Hawaii, in the cotton and sugar fields in this country. What is permitted in one State or Territory upon the grounds of policy and necessity would certainly have a tendency to spread to others, where the argument based upon necessity would be equally potent "It's hard for an American of to-day, whether he assisted in the abolition of slavery or was born since then, to conceive the possibi itv of the reintroduction of the system in modified form after such tremendous efforts were put forth to abolish it. Yet, as one belonging to a craft which, under the present laws of this country, is subject to be brought back to the master, shackles on hands, 1 would urge upon all labor organizations the absolute necessity of expressing themselves upon this subject in such a manner as to reach every part of this country if possible, and pre vent what seems to be the logical consequences of the annexation of the Hawaiian Islands under a treaty providing that all municipal legislation not inconsistent with the constitution of the United States is to be continued."

HAS SKIN LIKE SANDPAPER. Peculiar Affliction of a Man Under the Care of Indianapolis Physicians. CHICAGO, Dec. 14.— An Indianapolis special says: Dr. Spuryear of Kushville came to the city to-day to consult other physicians about a remarkable case he has under treatment. Hi- patient, D.iv.d McQueery, a farmer near Kushville, no ticed last summer that as he wiped per spiration from his brow he felt a sensa tion as though he baa rubbed his fore head with sandpaper, and it was discov ered that when he rubbed his flesh at any spot on his body he brought forth a gran ulated substance like sand, Some of the grains ot the "sand" are half as largo a grains of wheat. It was at lirst supposed .hat the "sand" was a granulation of the -aline element in perspiration, but this theory has been exploded. On one occa sion be rubbed a teaspoonful from the end of his thumb. The operation causes him pain and inconvenience, but does not affect his general health. It is the first case of the kind ever brought to the notice of Indianapolis physicians and the looks of the profession, it is said, contain no record of a similar case. MURDERED CAP I AIN AND MATE.

Special Dispatch to Tna I'alu WASHINGTON, Dec 14. —Judge Maguire arrived in Wa-hingtoii to-night. When seen by The Call correspondent, . esaid: "Of course I have had no opportunity to investigate the present stains of the l'acilic railroad question in Congress. Butt: is apparent that the situation has very greatly changed during the last six months. The sale of the main line of lhe Union l'acilic Kaihoad for a price suffi cient to pay the entire Government lien in addition to the first mortgage seems to have absolutely answered, if it has not silenced, the funding bili advocates. I do not now see how they can again face cii her Congress or the country with any such proposition. "I have very little to say at present on the Hawaiian question, because my views have not been at ah changed since they were recently published in The Call. 0. course, 1 realize and desire to retain for oar country the van laces of a close commercial relationship with the islands. These advantages can all he secured by maintaining tne independence of the isl ands and by mutually liberal treaty rela tions. If the freedom of the Islands be maintained it will be as much to the in terest of their people as to ours to con tinue the close commercial relations which we so much desire. There is un doubtedly much force in the philan trophic argument in favor of annexing ths islands for the benefit of the islanders, regardless of the effects of annexation uion the in terests of this country, tut 1 have not given much thought to that phase of the question. "My recent statement in Tits Call that I was opposed to the adoption by annexa tion ol the system of contract slavery pre vailing under the Hawaiian Government has been seveie y criticized upon the ground that I, as a lawyer, should know that such labor contracts could not be en forced alter annexation, tecause they would be contrary to the thirteenth amendment of the Feeders, constitution, wnich prohibits involuntary servitude, Unfortunately, as a iawver, bound to re spect the decisions of tne United States Supreme Court, I am forced to believe that such contracts are perfectly valid in the United States, and that persons held in servitude under them might be pursued from State to State of tbe American Union, arrested by either Stale or Federa officers as fugitive contract laborers and delivered over by our courts to their mas ters, in chains if necessary, as is done in the Hawaiian courts. "Those who hold a contrary opinion have not read the decision of the United btates Supreme Conn in Robertson vs. Baldwin (105 U. S. Reports). "Tne proposition to annex the islands by treaty I-* absurd. The President and Senate have no more power to annex the Hawaiian Islands by treaty than they would have toe -de Alaska or even Cali fornia to the Hawaiian Government.

That Is the Last Desperate Schem » Proposed by the Annexation Per pl-s. WASHINGTON, I) v. 14.— The acknowl edged failure of the Hawaiian annexation treaty in the Senate has led some of the annexationists to seek new plans for se curing possession of the islands, and it is now urged that they should be secured by purchase for $4,000,000, the amount of the Hawaiian den;. "I do not see," said Senator Bacon, "how the frienas of annexation can carry their point in any other way than simply making the acquisition of the territory by purchase. I do not believe the annex tion of foreign territory, which isa treaty function, is constitutional when it is se cured by Congressional enactment. The case of Hawaii is not identical with that of Texas, for Tex is was admitted as a State. I have given ihe matter close con sideration, but the question i- a delicate one and we ought to >,o slowly nd with great care." Senator Gorman of Maryland has an nounced himself in favor of annexation. He was asked when be made the an nouncement what he thought of the pos sibility of having two Senators from the island*. "That," said be, "would ba a very se rious consideration if it was threatened. I do not believe that it will arise for the next fifty year 3, but, if necessary, an agreement could be made whereby Hawaii could remain permanently as a Territory. It could be governed by com missioners or by a Governor appointed by the President." MR. FITZGERALD IS SCORED BY LABORING MEN.

Dec. 14 —Charles Harris testified to-day at the trial of M. Schoedde for mayhem. He said ho was unable to positively identify Schoedde as the man who mutilated him. According to his recollection the man was large and more rortiy than the prisoner. Harris was un able to see the fiend's face while the crime was being committed. Witnesses from San Jose testified as to Schoedde telling them of having per formed the operation, and received $1500 for it. Mrs. Plyler is expected to go on the stand to-morrow morning. There i much curiosity as to her testimony, for her lips have been sealed ever since the crime was committed. The main conten tion of the defense will be that Schoedde waa not here when Harris was mutilated, having returned to San Jose, as his ser vice- were not quired. The stronge-i evidence against him so far is his own ad missions to the people in San Jose, to whom he boasted of his share in the crime. Hi-SO-sK MrMMI .17 T01'81i..4.

NEW YORK, Dec. 14 —The Herald to morrow will say : After all the rumors and reports concerning the recent private sale in Kentucky of the celebrated two-year old racehorse, Hamburg, it can now be stated upon good authority that the colt belongs to Julius Fleischmann of Cincin nati, and. moreover, that the price paid to John E. Madden for the colt was $50, --000 and not $60,000, as reported. Accord ing to the Herald's informant negotiations had been going on for the purchase of the horse for sometime and were almost com pleted when Charles Fleischmann was taken ill and died. They had gone so far, perhaps, that there was hardly a possibil ity of the family of Mr. Fleischmann de claring off the transaction without con -ideraole 10-s. Hence the conclusion of Julius Fleischmann to conclude the deal alter the luneral of his father. Perhaps the death of the elder Fieiscnmann was the cause of all the secrecy in the trans action.
