It met the approval of the lepublican side

Hepiesentativo Harmct of Pennsylvania ,

action was a prudent thing to do I have

"When the idea of a provisional gov em
inent was Hist bruited in Honolulu , " said
Mr Bush.-there were betwe-en 000 and 700
native- , who aimed themselves and flocked
to the standard of the queen. Revolution
was imminent , and thu presence of the Boston
and her marines could not have sta.vcd it
The.n did not ptopose to submit to the
ir.uipation of the queen's power by a band of
white's , maiii of whom should have long be-
fete been deporte-d from the eountiy , but
w ise counsel restrained the queen s sup-
jiorteis and they awaited the action of tbo
American republic
"Minister Stevens recognized the provis
ional government. That was enough. The
natives laid down their arms fully satisfied
that their rights would bo respected , and
having the fullest confidence In the
honor and Justice of Ameiica. We tried
to have the maitial law repealed , but the
committee refused to do tills. Thc.v have
can led tilings with a high hand and the
raising of the American Hag was a godsend
to the natives. I rejwrted lu my paper the
prot ceilings of their meetings and
ciitici/x'd some of their acts Then they 10
solved to stiangle the freedom of the press ,
and tbev did it , too They suppressed inj
paper , then tbej watched me and would not
permit me to express inj sentiments orally
" 1 thought finally that tbo best thing"
could do would bo to go somewhere where I
could speak , so I came to this country. "

PAKIS. Feb 9 Expectation that the sen
tences of the prisoners in the Panama canal
would be delivered this afteinoon brought
eager crowds to the court of appeals build
ing before 11 o'clock this morning The approaches
preaches to the court room wore filled to the
lust niche by noon , and five minutes after
tie door * were throw n open the loom was
packed to suffocation. *
Presiding Judge Pe-rrivler read the de
cision after having dismissed the prisoners'
" ' I that they should benefit by tbo. statute
of 1 nutations Although the bases for the
J g ents were given In exceptionally
m ute details the audience listened from
fli st to last with oppiessive intonsitj of in
terest Charges of fraudulent proceedings
against Ferdinand do Lesseps , Charles do
Lesseps , H I Cottu and Manus Fontaine
was held to bo provea. On this point
the Judgment lefened to the company's
methods in issuing loans , the mendacious
official bulletins and the persistent pulling
done by the pi ess at the Instance of the
Ooiinl\cil nt Swindling.
These practices , the Judgment stated , when
not directly originated or endorsed by the
directors , had been connived at by them
Ferdinand de Lesseps , aided and abetted by
his son Charles , M Cottu and M Fontaine ,
has persistently eoncealcMt the operations of
Ihu canal company in older that the quota
tion of shares might not be affected unfavor
ably The directors had dealt w ith under
writing syndicates , which , as far as
their uuity was concerned , were ficti
tious and were known to bo fic
titious In underwriting loans these
sjnJieates had taken upon themselves
no risks , and jet they had received enor
mous sums from the comp inj The expenses
neccssarilv attendant upon the issues of
loans had been gro = slj exaggerated by the
directors , and this exaggeration also consti
tuted a fraudulent act Tlio plea of the de
fense that , despite those fraudulent acts ,
the ditectors were not amenable , because
the loan espec iillv in question h id not sue-
eeedod , the decision pionounced worthless ,
in view of thu evidence that the dit-octots
in-d not scrupled to OXJKISO the cap
Hal of the companj to risks involved in the
frush issue and even reiterated their prom

of the loan 11 } article xlviii of the cede ,

that the money should have been misappro
