"W., "WASHINGTON, June la.nrSenator
Platt of New York has come forward as
a leader of the Republican side for the
Nicaragua canal bill. Thus he und Sen
ator Hanna are onco more pitted against
each other, this time in one of the great
est contests that has taken place /In the
Senate in recent years. •
Platt's activity in a dozen different
ways haa confused the supporters of the
Panama project, and ho is conndent He
will win the fight. . „ , .,
The vote comes on Thursday. All Indi
cations now are that it will be close, it
Is impossible to make a poll of the Sen
ate that will actually show the result of
the first test vote, which will come up
on the adoption of the Spooner amend
ment to the Hepburn bill. The Hepburn
bill provides for the construction of the
Nicaragua canal. The Spooner amend
ment is to the effect that the Panama
canal shall be built, if it should become
apparent to the President that all of the
rights and: franchises of the Panama
Company can be purchased for $40,000,000.
I* not, the President shall authorize the
construction of the Nicaragua canal.
The difficulty in arriving at the exact
sentiment in the Senate., lies in the fact
that there are at least seven Senators
who will not indicate their preference one
way or the other, and, who have told Sen
ator Platfe and Senator Hanna that they
have not made up their minds how they
will vote. These Senators hold the val
ance of power. The bill that receives the
support of four of the seven doubtful
Senators will have a majority and will
prevail. -"£; %

The incumbent deputy grand arch, C.
A. Gugllelmonl, is in line of promotion for
noble grand arch and undoubtedly will be
chosen for that office. For the position of
deputy grand arch are named George
Beck of Livermore, at present grand mar
thai; Louis G. Schord of San Francisco,
past supreme arch; William Perry of
Sacramento and C. C. O'Donnell of San
Francisco. For the office of grand secre
tary the incumbent, James F. Martinoni,
past noble grand arch, and at present
herald of the supreme grove, will be a
candidate for election. S. C. Glover has
been named as a possible opponent. Judge
C. F: Caldwell of Napa, W. J. Antonovich
of San Francisco and Charles de Leigh
of Stockton, at present grand trustee,
¦will be candidates for the office of grand
marshal. C. D. Dorn of Salinas and W.
G. de Martini will contest for the honor
of being grand inside guardian. F. J.
Hern, the incumbent grand treasurer, will
be re-elected to that office, but it is said
that he would like to be chosen repre
sentative' to the Supreme Grove and may
be placed in opposition to J. S. Godeau,
the retiring head of the order.
Following! is a list of the present grand
officers and delegates.
p">npaHE next session of the . Grand ¦
I Grove of the United Ancient Order
I of Druids will be held in the city
JX of Napa commencing to-morrow
and continuing during . the week.
Delegates from 97 groves, in addition to
the grand officers, will be present.
At the beginning of the present term,.-.,
Julius S. Godeau, the noble grand arch,
made an appeal to the members of . the
subordinate groves to help him secure
two thousand hew members for the order
during his term. The records show that
the 'members did help him, for in that
time there were 2173 initiations, the great
est number in one year in the history of
the order. The grove making the greatest
gain on the basis of percentage was No
vato, of the town of that name, the per
ctntage being three hundred. The re- .
ports to be presented will show that the
membership is now within a few of 6000,
and that, despite losses by suspension
for non-payment of dues and other
causes, the net gain' was nearly 1700.
Eleven new groves were instituted during
the term. '¦
The report of Grand Secretary .Martin- >:,
oni will show that the order during the.
year paid in sick benefits . nearly $33,000, .:
and about $5000 for funeral expenses. The.
number of deaths was 62.

Mauga) had done wrong, that the penalty
for breaking the custom of calling the cup
was punishable by death and the destruc
tion of the houses and lands of the ac
cused or by exile.
ACCUSED ARE ACQUITTED.
The young men bound to their feet and
rush to Tuimanua's sleeping place. They
run as. the crow flies and destroy every
thing that comes in their way. The cup
brought back, the maid of the vil
lage, a sort of vestal virgin, ties it, to
a cocoanut palm and offers it to the
King. The King, after an elaborate cere
mony, drinks and then— and only then
may tha others drink. The:honor of hav
ing the cup called is seldom granted to
others than a great chief.
The calling of the cup is an interesting
ceremony. When a council is called the
chiefs of the villages gather, each carry
ing a taro root. They sit in a, circle. The
approach of a great chief is heralded by
the sounding of a conch, and he comes
attended by maidens and trumpeters. The
chief seats himself and the maidens gath
er taro roots. Once the kava is prepared
by maidens chewing the roots, the kava
makers take positions beside the kava
bowls and the crier calls for the cup of
the great chief or king.
Saleapaga, one of the village officials,
spoke, saying that Mauga should be al
lowed to have his cup because lie was a
governor, and Palaita, who had .previous
ly offered Mauga his cup, called out,
"Aumai le ipu o le Kovana" (Fetch the
cup of the governor). This was a calling
of the cup, and kava was straightway
served and drunk.

W. t WASHINGTON. June 15.— Trouble is
brewirig in Samoa. Even now the chiefs
may have led their -warriors with black
ened faces to war on account of a dispute
over etiquette surrouacing the method of
serving kava, the national drink, bnnilar
disputes in years past have led to atroci
ties, and many German soldiers were vic
tims in the 'SO's. v
Tuimanua, who styles himself King of
Manua, has a great following on the isl
ands, and the etiquette in fores at his
court provides that he is the only person
whose cup may be "called" when he is
served with kava. Mauga,, chief and dis
trict governor, dared to command his cup
"called" when kava was served him. Tho
matter was carried into the courts, but
the decision rendered by the district court
was far from satisfactory to the chiefs,

MANILA, June 15.— Friendly natives in
Manila say a report is current among
their countrymen that the five soldiers
of the Fifth Cavalry who were captured
by the insurgents on May 30 have been
boloed to death near Teresa, in Morong
province, Luzon. This report has not
been, confirmed by the American author
ities 'of that district.
¦ .¦ Twenty-five members of a band .of in
surgents who were captured while fight
ing with General Lukban in Samar took
the oath of allegiance to the United
States and were subsequently released.
Four members of the band were killed
in the engagement' which resulted in the
capture of their companions. The twen
ty-five who have sworn allegiance have
fseen General Chaffee, and have promised
to give him all the assistance in their
power in the work of maintaining the
present peace conditions in Samar.
A commission has been sent to Samar
to appoint Senor Llorentes Governor of
the island and to establish civil govern
ment there. It is expected that a gener
al amnesty will be declared on July 1.
The amnesty will result in the release
of the Filipino prisoners now on the isl
and of Guam. .'r'L'K
The prospects in the island of Leyte
for a speedy termination of the armed
resistance are bright. Since the ports
of the island were closed surrenders of
insurgents to the native constabulary
have occurred daily.
