Forces tor and floainst Ratification flre Being Lined Up for tne StruoQle Bat Is to Goms— Signatures flffixed to the Compact Early in the Day. WASHINGTON, June 16.— The treaty for the annexation of the Hawaiian islands ivached the senate chamber at 5 o'clock today. The senate at once went into executive session and, as soon as the doors were closed, the message of President McKinley ac companying the treaty and the treaty itself were read to the senate. They were attentively listened to. In one part of the chamber there was a group of senators who will bitterly oppose the ratification of the treaty. Among them were Senators Gray, Mills, Pasco, Caf fery, Pettigrew and McEnery. As soon as the reading of the docu ments was completed, Senator Davis, chairman of the committee on foreign relations, moved that the message and the treaty be made public. Senator Gray objected to a vote on the mo tion and, under the rules, a single ob jection carried the moition over until tomorrow. Senator Davis gave notice that at the next executive session he would press the motion for publica tion as all the essential facts and al most a verbatim copy of the treaty had 'been published in the press of the country. There was some discussion as to when the treaty might be considered, and Senator White askec* if it was the intention to push it at this session, and upon the reply being made that it was possible, the California senator said: "I desire to annour.ee that I am prepared to stay here all summer to prevent the ratification, which I con sider a very bad proposition." "I'll join you," said Senator Petti grew (S. D.). The message of the president was not a very long document. It dea.lt with historical facts concerning the island and showed that the United Startes and Hawaii yearly grow more closely bound to each other. This was not really annexation, he said, but a continuation of existing relations with closer bonds between people closely re hated by blood and kindred ties. Since jM y£Lr 1820, said the president, the predom inance of the United States had been known. The sending- of the first envoy there brought the islands in closer re lations with the United States, and those relations had grown more firm by succeeding events. At the time the tri-partite agreement was made for the government of Samoa, he said, Great Britain and Germany wanted to in clude Hawaii in the group over which a protectorate was established, but the suggestion was rejected by the United States because this government held this already existed in the relations be tween Hawaii and the United States, which placed the islands under the especial care of this country, and this government could not allow any other country to interfere in the affairs of Hawaii. The annexation of the isl ands, sciid the president, and making them a part of the United States was in accordance with the established pol icy of this country. The president called attention to the fact that a legitimate and existing gov ernment of Hawaii offered to annex the islands to the United States in ISSI. but on account of what was deemed best policy, the annexation was not accepted by this country. He stated that the United States visually exercised a protectorate over the islands since the first American mission and guaranteed the atuonomy of the government of the group. The inlands had been largely B( ;tled by our own people and our peo ple were now Interested in them. American interests predominated and we had grown to consider them under our own protection. The present treaty was in the light of a consummation of what had practically been in existence for years. Referring to the treaty negotiated under the Harrison administration. President McKinley said that the fail ure to accept the proffer of annexation in 1893. while not a subject of con gratulation, was not wholly without its value, as it had demonstrated that the existing government could maintain it self, and no question could be raised of the authority of the present govern ment to negotiate the present treaty or of its right to yield the sovereignty of the islands. The treaty proved to be a simple document of six articles, based in its essential details upon the treaty ne gotiated by Hm, John W. Foster dur ing the administration of .President Harrison. The islands are ceded prac tically without conditions, leaving the United States to pursue . its own course with reference to their manage- MGKlnleu Urges Hawaiian ftnnexation. No fiction Taken Because ol a Formal Objection bij One Senator. ment. The first article reads as fol lows: The government of the Hawaiian islands hereby coies from the date of the exchange of the ratifications of this treaty, absolute and without reserve to the United S a.tes forever, all rights of sovereignty of whatsoever kind in and over the Hawaiian island..; and their de pendencies, renouncing in favor of the United States every sovereign right of which, as an independent nation, it is now possessed; and henceforth, said Hawaiian islands e,hall be come and be an integral part of the territory of the United States. The Hawaiian government oedes to the United States the absolute owner ship of all the public lands, puiblic buildings, ports, harbors, fortifica tions, military and naval equipments and all other government property. It is specifically provided, however, that the existing land laws of the United States shall not apply to the public lands of Hawaii, but that special laws shall be made from time to time for their disposition, the proceeds of any sales of these lands to be applied to educational purposes in the islands. The islands are for the present to constitute a territory of the United States, their local laws remaining in force until new ones are enacted. A local legislature is provided for, but the veto rower is vested entirely in the president of the United States. A commission of five persons, consisting of three Americans and two Hawaiian?, to be nominated by the president amd confirmed by the senate, is provided for the purpose of formulating the mode of government for the islands. The five commissioners provided for in the treaty are expected to make recommendations to congress as to new laws and also as regards the form of government. The present form of local government is to continue in the islands for the present, except that the president of the United States is to have immediate veto power over the acts of the Hawaiian legislative as sembly. The treaties of the United States, with other countries, are substituted for the treaties of Hawaii with the same coun tries in the controlling international relations of the islands. Further immi gration of Chinese laborers to the is- < lands Ls prohibited and the laws re stricting Chinese immigration to the United States are made to apply to the prevention of Chinese removing from Hawaii to this country. This THE SArtDWICH ISLANDS, Yv'hich the Administration Proposes to Annex. country acrees to assume the debt of the island republic to the extent of j $4,000,000. The treaty was signed shortly after 9 o'clock this morning in the diplo matic room of the state department. It is a very unusual thing for a treaty of such importance to be sig-ned early in the morning, but in this case it was desired that the convention be made ready early in order that it might be submitted to the senate on the day of its signature. The document itself had been prepared carefully overnight in fact, it was practically completed at the close of official hours yesterday but it was necessary to make a close comparison, and the president wished another opportunity to go over the document, probably with a view of drawing up a message with which it was accompanied to the senate. Before 9 o"clock the persons who were concerned in the preparation of the treaty were at the state depart ment. P^or the United States there were Secretary Sherman, Assistant Secretaries Day, Adee and Cridler Private Secretary Babcock, and As sistant Private Secretary Gaytree. On the Hawaiian side were Minister Hatch, Lorrin A. T'hurston, and W A Kinney, all, for this particular occas ion, accredited as speoial commission ers duly empowered to neg-otiate a treaty of annexation. After the formal greetings the credentials of the pleni potentiaries were scanned and record ed. Secretary Sherman alone repre sented the United States in the signa ture of the convention, and it was cart of the ceremony to record his authori zation by the president, just as much as it was the credentials of the Ha vvaiians from President Dole. Then came the reading and compari son of the treaty. Of this there were two drafts, one to be held by each later on to be exchanged in the usuai form. AV.ogether it was twenty min utes afttv 9 o'clock when all was ready for the signatures. The Hawaiian rep resentatives Irad broug-ht with them a gold pen in a plain holder, and at their request this was used for all of the signatures. Secretary Sherman signed first the copy intended to be held here while Minister Hatch signed first the Hawaiian copy of the treaty, his fel low commissioners corning next in order. Mr. Thurston first, followed by Mr. Kinney. The treaties were sealed by Assistant Secretary Cridler, with a private seal carried on his watch chain, the copies were handed to their respective custodians, and the treaty was made, as far as the executive branch of the government could effeci it. There was a general exchange of congratulations between the parties THURSDAY MOKNINGT JUNE 17, 1897. ITXCLE SAM— YOU FELLOWS WILI> PLB.ISE STA\D BACK YVHILE I TRY THESE OYSTER SANDWICHES MYSEiLF.

The much-wanted "third party" sup posed to be implicated with Charley Zschau in the National German-Amer ican tank robbery whs indicted yes terday afternoon. An' h<>ur later he was arrested and lodged in the county jail. The "third party." sc-called, is none i other than Louis Zschau. the younger brother of Charley. Louis was arrest ed at the place of business of Foot, Schulze & Co., on Epst Third street, by Deputy Sheriff Reichow. A peculiar circumstance attended the arrest. It was County Attorney Ander soon himself who took it into, his head to accompany the de^uly sheriff from the court house dawzt-to the establish ment of Foot, Schulze & Co., and to remain with the deputy sheriff until the arrest was made. The action of • the county attorney- occasioned consid erable critical comment, though noth ing he may choose to do, it was re marked yesterday, excites any surprise. The grand jury returned the indict ment at 3:30 p. m. Louis Zschau is not the only one named therein, for in dicted jointly with him are his brother Charley Zschau and George K. Jack son. The indictment charges all three with grand larceny Ln :the first degree. Soon after the return of the indict ment a bench warraift signed by Judge Lewis was issued for the arrest of Louis Zschau. It was handed to Dep uiy Sheriff Reichow to execute. Mr. Reichow was on his v.-ay to the sher- to the ceremony, and alter a photo graph had been taken, of the commis sioners the cs-rempny was endeJ. Before the final signature of the do-c --ument, the sxcrtta.rv of state was pre sented a formal protect by the Jap anese government through its legation here against the consummation of the agreement. The protect is understood to be based on apprehension that the special treaties now. existing between Japan and Hawaii. under which the Japanese enjoy advantages, will be af fected injuriously by complete annex ation. Minister Hoshi, of Japan, declined to be seen today about Japan's protest, and Secretary Mutsu refused to discuss the matter in any way-; but it is learn e-d that the Japaneseprotest was made in person to the state department yes terday afternoon by jMinister Hoshi. The news of the protest was a great surprise to the Hawaiian legation, and as soon as intelligence of it was ob tained. Minister Hatch started out to learn the particulars. The essential point as to the protest. Is whether it is against the annexation of Hawaii, or is merely a protest reserving to Japan all her rights under he existing treaty with Hawaii. It is jaflieved that It is the latter. The Jasfa.pi?se treaty with Hawaii was made ih isTl and provides that natives or citizens of one county shall have the Mnintt*rruj*ted right to enter into, reside arid trade in the other country, and also shall have all the rigtits and privileges enjoyed by the people of any other country under treaty stipulations with Japan. Japan under the treaty consequently has a perfect right to havef her immigrants enter the Hawaiian isfan-ds. Under in ternational law the annexation of Hawaii to the United States would abrogate this treaty. Moreover, a new treaty between the Uhited States and Japan, made some time ago, and to become effective in 18&9, provides that the United States mat exclude Japan ese. If Hawaii is annexed the effect would be to permit the United States to exclude the Japanese from Hawaii. It is taken for granted, therefore, that the protest is one reserving Japanese rights under its treaty of 1871 with Hawaii. At the Japanese legation the docu ment filed by the Japanese minister yesterday is not regarded as a protest against the Hawaiian treaty, but I 3 considered as a re<jvi?st for official in formation. There appears, however, to be no doubt that as coon as Japan is notified officially of tije signing of the convention that the government of the Un">-ed States will m informed that Cor tf a tied on Third rase.

Dep uty Keicho>y said _ nothing, except to remark that he had to Btop in 'the sher iff's office before starting out, in order to report the bench warrant. This lie did, County Attorney Anderson follow ing him. Upon leaving the building Mr. Anderson informed Reichow that young Zschau worked for Foot. Schulze & Co.. and accordingly the deputy turn ed his steps in that direction. Upon ar riving there, Mr. Anderson stepped into the private office and in a private con ference with Theodore Schulze explain ed the nature &i the deputy sheriff's business. Mr. Schulze informed Mr. Anderson where young Zschau was to be found, and the latter rejoining Dep uty Reichow led the way to that part of the building where Zschau was em ployed. He haopened to be upstairs, but when whistled for soon came down on the freight elevator. Deputy Re! chow was acquainted with Zschau, and as the young man stepped off the elevator, Reichow introduced him to Mr. Anderson, saying as he presented the latter, "Th'.s is the coun ty attorney." Mr. Zschau and Mr. An derson stock hands each simultan eously expressing their pleasure at meeting each other. Then an awkward silenco ensued. Deputy Reichow final ly broke it. "I've got a bench warrant for you, Louis," said Rei -how. Zschau looked quickly from the New Minister to Madrid Named. WASHINGTON. June 16.— Tho presi dent has nominated Stewart L.. Wcou ford, of New York, to be ministp*- to Spain. Mr. Woodford is an old friend of Senator Platt and the two have been on intimate terms since they were col leagues in congress a score of years ago. Senator Platt vigorously urged him for a cabinet position, trying to have him made secretary of the in terior. Mr. Woodford has made a fortune in his law practice, and Repub lican friends today spoke of him as a natural diplomat. His nomination has been foreshadowed in gossip about the office for some weeks. The cabinet talked the matter over yesterday and the president referred to several per sons suggested for the post and inti mated thiait the preference was with Woodford. The question was brouyht up again today and late this afternoon Secretary Bliss was called to the White house, and shortly after the nomination was sent to the senate. Mr. Woodford will see the president to morrow. There is excellent authority for the statement that Mr. Woodford will accept. Stewart L. Woodford. the newly appointed minister to Spain, was born in New York on September 3, 1835, and Is descended from early settlers of Connecticut. Gen. Woodford en tered Columbia college at 15, but spent tho sophomore year at Yale, completing his edu cation at Columbia and graduating in 1854. He was admitted to the bar in 1857 and entered po'.Hics in the first Lincoln campaign in lßtsO. Lincoln offered him the judgeship of the ter ritory of Nebraska, but he declined it. Later he became assistant United States district at torney of New York and prosecuted the cases growing out of the blockade. He resigned to enter the army as a volunteer. He was madn captain and served until 1864. He was Judgo advocate general of the department of tlu- South, provost marshal general and chief of staff of Gen. Gllmore. He was breve;e:Pb:igo dier general from gallantry in action. After the war he was military governor of the city of Charleston and later Savannah. He re signed in ISR> and resumed law. In the fall of 1865 he was nominated for judge of the common pleas court In this ely, though he lived In Brooklyn. In 1866 he was elected lieutenant governor of the ticket with Gov. Fen ton. He presided over the Grant •let coral college of tbe state In 1872, and de- To the Honorable, the Judges of the District Court of the Second Judicial District of the State of Minnesota in and for the County of Ramsey, and to said District Court: We, the undersigned, legal voters\>f and residents of the City of St. Paul, in the County of Ramsey, in the State of Minnesota, hereby petition the ap pointment by you of a board of fifteen freeholders who are, and for the past five years have been, qualified voters of said City of St. Paul, to draft and return to the Mayor of said City of St. Paul a proposed charter for said city to te adopted or righted by the voters thereof, pursuant to the constitution of said state and Chapter 255, of the Laws of Minnesota, for the year 1897. This petition is made for the purpose of enabling the City of St. Paul to frame its own charter, for its government as a city consistent with, and subject to the Laws of Minnesota, and that the charter so framed shall take the place of the present charter of said cicy, if adopted as aforesaid, and we said petitioners state that we believe that the public interests of said City of St. Paul so require. Nfl/VIE ' _ADDRESS. STREET AND NO. DISfgiCTT ~*ARD. The majority of the electors of St. Paul are said to be in favor of imme diate action for securing a new char ter commisison, and, as the assembly seems inclined to delay the movement, the Globe today offers the electors an opportunity to forward the move ment by petition, if they so desire. Any person who Is willing or anxious to sign a petition to the district court judges requesting them to name a com mission of fifteen freeholders as pro vided by law, is requested to cut out the above coupon, fill it in and send it to the Globe office. He will later deputy to the county attorney, but evinced no surprise or emotion of any description. He simply replied that ho would be ready to go with Deputy Reichow a3 soon as he could change his clothes. He was allowed to do this and in the meantime County At torney Anderson left, after instruct ing Deputy Reichow to take Zschau to his, the county attorney's, office. Less than half an hour later Deputy Reichow appeared at the county at torney's office with his prisoner. Mr. Anderson thereupon took young Zschau aside and had a private talk with him, after which Deputy Reichaw • took Zschau over to the county jail. In charging Louis Zschau with com plicity in the stealing of $13,600 from the German-American bank, it is the ■ theory of the prosecution that it was he who received the money from Charity Zschau a* the bank, and who deposited, three-quarters of an hour later, $5,700 in the First National bank to Jackson's account. It is also claim ed that Louis Zschau is the one who buried the $7,900 under his father's cooper stio-p-. . Louis Zschau is confined in a cell en the second floor of the jail in a cor ridor widely separated from the quar ters of his brother, Charles, and Jack son, with neither of whom is h-e allow ed any communication. He has not expressed a wish to talk with the other two prisoners and seems only interest ed in securing bail as quickly as pos sible. Seen at the county jail by a reporter fcr the Globe shortly after his ar rest, young Zschau appeared quite un concerned ?.s to the charge against him, but absolutely lefused to discuss the matter.' Naturally, he said, his was an embarrassing position, but there was really nothing to be said. He was wholly innocent of any knowl edge of the bank robbery, Zschau de clared, and his arrest was an injustice. Being a brother of the man who had confessed to stealing the money, the young fellow said he was not surprised that suspicion might have been di rected against him. but that he should actually be accused of complicity in the crime and indicted by the grand jury was a condition of affairs for which he had been unprepared. The accusation was absolutely unfounded. Louis declared, and it would be an easy matter for him to account for his Whereabouts on the day of the rob bery, so that his camr>lete innocence could be established. Charles Zschau, with an attempt at a smile, informed the reporter for the Stewart L. Woodford Goes to Spain. featcd W. W. Gcc.drich for congress the same year. Gen.

PARIS, June 16.— A bomb was ex ploded this afternoon in front of the Slrasburg statue on the Place de la Concorde. The explosion c-f the infer nal machine did some injury to the bal ustrade of the statue, and the immedi ate locality was strewn with scrap iron as far as the wall of the Tuilleries.

The police have descriptions of two men who wore seen running from the vicinity of the statue immediately after the explosion. Up to midnight there have been no arrests. The Eclair says that four bombs or infernal machines have been discovered in Paris during the past month, and that during President Faure*s journey- Ings several domiciles were searched.

"I have nothing whatever to say '* was the reply. When Jackson was informed of Louis Zschau's arrest, he expressed unfeigned surprise. "It's too bad," he said, "there must be some mistake. I know nothing about the robbery myself, but I don't believe Louiis had anything to do with it. It's a shame. It's really awful for this will simply break that poor old mother's heart." "Will the arrest of young Zschau be of assistance to you in establishing your claim of innocence? 1 ' was asked. Jackson. "I don't think it will. I don't know anything about it," he replied.
