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." ANDREW FURUSETH.

question came up on a report from the

some discussion. The committee reported
on a resolution opposing the annexation
of Hawaii, offered by T. J. Elderkln, and
presented the following substitute:
Whereas, There is at present pending in the
United States Senate a treaty providing for the
annexation of the Hawaiian Islands;, and
whereas, that annexation would be tanta

Resolved, That we urge the United S ates
Senaie to reject the treaty of annexation and
to take such other steps as may be necessary
to maintain amicable relations with Hawaii.
It was provided that the incoming ex

Peculiar Affliction of a Man Under
the Care of Indianapolis
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.

This Serfdom of White
Congressman Maguire Points to
Rulings cf America's Highest
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
"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. If
the islands are to be annexed it must be
by bill or resolution passed by both houses
of Congress and signed by me Pres dent.''

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
"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."

The resolution further declares that Mr.

SANTA CRUZ. 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

Mrs. Plyler is expected to go on the

much curiosity as to her testimony, for

horse for sometime and were almost com

Four Other Bad Characters Stripped
and Horsewhipped by a
Louisiana Mob.
NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 14.— Only one of
the two men taken from the train at
White Castle yesterday was lynched last
night. The pair were taken to St.
Gabriel, the scene of the 13abien murder,
and there Joe Thomas, one of the negroes,
made a confes ion of bis own guilt, also
implicating two black brothers, Joe and
Charles Alexander. The later were cap
tured on a neighboring sugar plantation
and were forced spectators to tne execu
tion of Thomas on the gallery ot tno
store they had robbed. The Alexanders
Were then tried and also confessed, telling
of another murder which they had
planned to commit in the same store.
At 1 o'clock this morning the Alexan
ders were also hanged in front of the
store Tnere were four other suspects in
the hands of the mob, and these were
acquitted of the murder, but being bad
characters were stripped and hors -
whipped and then ordered to leave the
The Committees AreAVo: king Untiringly
mid Have the Arrangements
About Completed.
The various committees which have
charge of the Golden Jubilee have been
done some practical work the last few
days and have their plans ior the cele
bration well in hand.
The committee on arrangements has
given a considerable amount oi advertis
ing to the printer and its plan for the
arrangements of the exhibits is about
completed. The -entire east end of the
hall will be given up to the Klondike
mining exhibit. Tne west end with the
annex and machinery room will contain
the mineral and mining exhibits. The
booths of the Klondike < v fitting de
partment will b- in van. fancy suapes
and each wiil contain the same amount
ol space. The plans tor the selection of
spaces will be ready n- xi Monday and the
rule of hrst come first served will be
strictly adhered to. As there are only
thirty-two booths to oe disposed of it is
probabie that they will go rather rapidly.
One of the p'incipal features of the
Klondike outfitting d partment will be
the illustration of the cooking. The east
end of the gallery will be partitioned off
from this, and four lectures a week will
be given, »nd the visitors will be shown
how to make delicious omelets from de-ac
caied eggs and palatable dishes of t-Ta
poraied fruit and vegetables all on a
small "tno k-down" stove.
Scenic artists and stape carpenters have
investigated and tind that ,he plan to
have a raining camp in full operation is
a feasible one. The «-est side of the
callery will be occupied by a wonderfully
natural representation of the North
B.oomri'-ld hydraulic mine. This exhibit
will be 63 by 100 eet with a depth of 50
feet. There will be twenty-five men en
gaged in operating the mine and with
gravel bowlder", sluice boxes and pumps
a clear idea of m ning as it is earned on
in California will be given to the v.sitors
to the fair.
The Sta'e Board of Trad" will probably
have us exhibit moved to th» fair, and
there are to be a number of interesting
loan exhibits. The general committee
meets to-nicht, and a number of minor
points will be discussed and decided.
He Took an Overdose of Morphine and
Died in tli c Morn From Its Effects.
F. Peterson arrived from Modesto last
Monday evening and took a room at the
New Western Hotel. Yesterday morning
i- the porter was pa«9ins» his room he
heard the sound of stertorous breathing
proceeding Irom the room occupied by
Peterson. No reply having been given to
his summons at the door he forced an en
trance and found Peterson lying in his bed
unconscious. Mr. button immediately
summoned Dr. Wi c, who rooms in the
house, and the doctor summoned Dr. Mc-
Lain to assist him. They used all the
known methods of restoratives upon Peter
son, but he died within a half hour after
he was found.
Deputy Coroner Tyrrell took charge of
the tody and found in the coat pocket of
the deceased a hypodermic syringe and a
oottle centa nine several grains of mor
phine. No marks could be found on tie
arms of Peterson to show that he had
taken an injection of the fatal drug. The
contents of the bottle showed t.. at water
had been mixed with the drug in it, and
it was supposed that Peterson took an
overdose. An autopsy will be held to-day.
