SENSATIONAL A Suit to Set Aside the Conveyance Of the Property of the State National To the Citj National Bank aud for the Appointment of a Ke- ceiver. Judge George E, Boss today filed a supplemental complaint in the suit of Edwin P. Ferris, formerly of Shel'oyvilie, now of Indianapolis,. against the State National bank to recover attorney's fees aggregating 81,;5H.16, which is highly sensational, as it demands that the transfer of the property of the State National bane be set aside and that a receiver be appointed for the said State National bank. Suit was began by Ferris before the failure of the State National bank. The supplemental complaint alleges that at the time the comptroller of the currency took charge of tha bank it was and ia still Insolvent, ami that the stockholders (all named) are each liable to assessment under the general laws or the United States for a sum equal to the amount of this stock to create a fund out of which to pay the debts and liabilities of the said bank; that on the 24th of June, 1897, the property of the bank was transferred^ the City National bank, (as plaintiff is reliably informed and believes) with the understanding that the said City National bank would assume the payment of the debts and liabilities of the State National bank: that insteid of so doing secret arrangements were made for tbb purpose of delaying, cheating. hindering and defrauding the creditors, and that since the failure of tbe Stale National bank none of defendant stockholders have paid assessments with which to pay the debts of the banks. Therefore, the plaintiff demands judgment for 12,000; that the transfer be set aside, and that a receiver be appointed for the State National bank to collect a&sessments and pay the debts. It appears, from the statements of Judge Ross, that the State National bank employed Judge M. Winfield of this city and Mr. Ferris of Sbelby- ville to collect a note for »5,000 held against P. H. McCormack one of the Loogclifl hospital contractors; that McOormack deeded his possessions to one Joseph I. Irwin for the alleged purpose of beating his creditors, and that suit was brought against McCormack and Irwin jointly. Tha suit was brought; at Columbus, Ind. The bank paicl Judge Winfleld »500 for hisi services, and Ferris refusea the sum offered him for the alleged reason that he had done all the work and was entitled to a greater sum. It is said by Judge Boss that after the beginning of the original suit, before the failure of the bank, John F. Johnson, its president, offered to compromise the case. Wanted. Manager.

One of the first doors open to women, outside of millinery and dressmaking, •which were always considered strictly feminine employments, was that <nf medicine. At the present time there are nearly 5,000 women physicians and surgeons in the United States. The first woman to practice law was Mrs. Mansfield of Iowa, who began in 1S69. Now there are over 200 women lawyers in this country. The bill allowing womisn to practice before the United States supreme court passed congress in February, 1S79. Some women lawyers devote themselves wholly to office -work, some accept salaried positions, •while otixirs prefer court practice.

D. Ferguson for $20,000 Dismissed. The Plaintiff Failed to Put Up the Required Cost Bond. In the United States district court yesterday the suit of Constantino Champion against John D. Ferguson was dismissed because of a failure upon the part of plaintiff to furnish cost bond. Champion demanded $20,000 for alleged false imprisonment. Tne controversy between Champion and Ferguson arose over an attempt upon the part oil the former to obtain possession of ttae pacinp horee known as Gold Medium. The horae was brought here from Oklahoma and sold to Mr. Ferguson, and while the animal was at the Valparaiso track Champion appeared. Claiming an interest, in the hon-e Champion took advantage of an opportunity to get possession. To make a long story short Champion was captured in Illinois, taken back to Valparaiso aod committed to jail. He was charged with grand larceny, but when the case vras called for trial, Mr. Ferguson refused to appear against him, and he was discharged. Mr. Chajapicn was then, and is now, a resident of Oklahoma. He was once a citizen of Loganspcrli. He claimed to hold a Dill of sale on the horse to cover a bill for feed. Nelson & Meyers represented Mr. Ferguson in the United States court. Waists and Blouse Cotfficcn. Fancy waists, separate waists, blouse bodices and other pretty garments of the kind, unlike the skirt, are as universally popular as ever, and every indication is th::: the coming spring will show all the winter models and very many additional and attractive styles brought out in seasonable fabrics and garnitures which will render them entirely too fascinating to relinquish merely because the separate wni.st is a very general and familiar article of wear. Not only will those garments prevail next season, but several noted French designers are already modeling styles much like the Russian blouse for summer waists, that will be copied in fancy silks, decorated with lace and velvet ribbon, in soft sheer white wools, trimmed with white silk braid, plain white china silks, organdies and even ginghams in varicolored checks and plaids and stripes in pretty tricolor mixtures, ea,ch finished with bands of lace insertion.—New York Post Woman's ResponsibiMty. "We exaggerate onr present responsibility," says Miss Agnes Bepplier, "fancying the wrongs of humanity are waiting for us to redress thorn, and we underrate our importance in the past, forgetting or ignoring the fact that for the thousands of years in which the 'child man,' as .Mrs. Grand patronizingly calls him, has sailed his little bark through the ocean of life we have sailed it with him, sometimes steering him safely in rough waters and sometimes npsetting the boat The most lamentable consequence of this mental confusion is a tendency to look after man rather than to look after ourselves, to help him to do his work—for which assistance he is most ungrateful—rather than map out distinctly and practically our own sphere of labor, to base our most strennous efforts of reform upon the past failures of men rather than upon our owa past failures, which «r« serious enough to merit plenty of afwn- tinr. " ,. . . ^ . - FRIENDS OF HAWAII. VIEWS OF EX-MINISTER THURSTON AND SENATOR MORGAN. fhe Tidal Wave From Japan—How Its Annexation Wtrald Add to Oor Xav»l Strength—The Prospective Trade ol Sis Hundred Million rcoplc. [Special Correspondence.] WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.—Much has been said on the Hawaiian question, pro and con, but it seemed to me that even now a last word might find a hearing. So I sought out the two men who have done the most—each in his own way— to farther the proposed annexation of Hawaii, ex-Minister Lorrin A. Thnrston and Senator -Tohn T. Morgan. I first met Air. Thnrstoii four years ago, during the stress of events immediately succeeding the overthrow of Liliuokalani, and when the prospects for his patriotic purposes -were not so bright as now. He EX-MINISTER L. A. THTTBSTOK. impressed me from the first, as I have said, to 'be a man of convictions, deeply imbned with a high sense of honor and moral worth. That impression was strengthened when we again met in this city, Mr. Thwston makes no secret of his intentions here,, He is here for the purpose of watching and fostering the cause of annexation, of which he has been* the head and front- during the past five years. Being here now in unofficial capacity, be can speak more freely than when holding an important position, and his views are given frankly and without reservation. They are the views of one who is perhaps better informed than any other man living upon the condition of Hawaii and her prospective value to the United States. After alluding to the fact, as a pleasurable coincidence, that his little girl was born on the very day of the establishment of the .Hawaiian provisional government, Jan. 17, 1893, he proceeded to give me the gist of his reasons why the country of his nativity should become jpart and parcel of the Union. "In, the first place, " he said, "Hawaiian civilization, commerce, education and development are the direct products of American effort. Hawaii is a child of America—the one American colony beyond the confines o!f the Union. Honolulu, moreover, is the one port of the world where the stars and stripes float over''more ships l;hau all other flags combined. All that Hawaii is, has and hopes to be she offers to the United States without asking any guarantee in return or any pledges from our government. ' "We know that- the future of the islands, their development, their safety even, will depand upon the closest possible union with the United States.' Personally we will not gain, but in the aggregate we will greatly benefit. Now, for instance, as a measure of protection, there is Japan. Reversing her traditional vnlicy of ages, she now encourages es!: ^ration, particularly to our islands, and so rapidly have the Japanese come I-; Hawaii that they now number more than Ssii, 000—the adult males of that nationality outnumbering these of any other. If we had permitted this invasion to continue, which was to our islands as though a million a month should! enter the ports of the United States, we should soon have been swamped beneath sin oriental tidal wave. It was our effort Co restrict this immigration—which was secured to the Japanese by treaty—that involved us in controversy with that government. Since their success iu their war with the Chinese the Japanese have become more aggressive, and it requires no prophetic mind to perceive what the result vronld be were Hawaii to be left alone. "The issue today, then, is not between the monarchy and the republic— that is now a closed question—but tha issue im Hawaii iis the preliminary skirmish between the awakening forces and .civilization in the east and the civilization of :*e west. The question is whether in that inevitable struggle Asia or America shall have the vantage ground of control by holding as a naval station this key of the Pacific, as the Hawaiian Islands have been termed. Captain Maban, for instance, declares Hawaii to be one of the most important strategic- al points in the world, standing alone, having and admitting no rival. General Scbofi«ld said in 1ST5, ^The Hawaiian Islands eonstitmtis the only natural outpost to the defenses of the Pacific coast.' I migiat quote a dozen others to the same effect, but I will merely remark that all authorities are agreed as to their strategic value to whatever power shall hold them, and to confirm this statement will submit the following table, showing why our islands have been called 'the crossroads of the Pacific:,' The distance from Hawaii to San Francisco is 2,080 miles; to Unalaska, Aleutian irlands, 2,016; Sitka, 2,395; Van- conTer, 2,305; Tahiti, 8,389; Fiji, J.736;: Samoa, 51,263; Auckland, New Za«laiid, 3,850; Yokohama, 3,399; Hongkong, 4,917; Nioantgna canal, 4,810. -ft will pcrhiip* forpria* the ordinary observer to be told tliat Hawaii is nearer Unalaska than San Francisco, and that either is at a less distance than any other port in the Pacific. It is this contiguity to our own coast, together with • the peerless harbors offered for our fleets and the possibility of impregnable fortification, that constitutes the •unassailable argument for possession by the government of the United States. "On this question also all our great naval authorities are in accord. Instead of being an element of weakness, necessitating a large number of warships for additional defense, Hawaii would add immeasurably to onr strength, Nearly all onr great secretaries of stats also have advocated the occupation of Hawaii in case of war with an eastern power—Webster, Clayton, Legare, sjarcy—and 50 years ago it was declared that 'wboe'ver holds Hawaii holds the key to the north Pacific.' "Coinciding with this view and projecting -it from the higher and broader plane of elevated statesmanship, Senator Morgan, whose advocacy of Hawaiian annexation has been strong and persistent, says: 'The establishment of an outpost of the United States within the tropics and 2,000 miles from onr coast challenges an inquiry whether Btich a movement is necessary to the national welfara For many years my attention has been strongly drawn in that direction, and I went to Hawaii to aacertain if my impressions were well founded.''' With a view of ascertaining if he had been correctly reported I called on the senator at his fine old mansion on Four and a Half street and was admitted to an interview. Instead of the single question, or at the most half a dozen queries, which I originally intended to propound, I probably greatly exceeded the limit 1 had set myself, for the interview lasted more than an hour. While expressing himself as charmed with the scenery of the islands, their equable climate and the amiable character of their people, he particularly emphasized their value from a commercial and strategic standpoint "Their resources are so vast," he says, "that it would be a profitable investment for our government to purchase them at an expense of $100,000,000, though in point of fact we can get them for nothing. But, valuable as they are to us in this material sense, they are still more desirable for other reasons. To the objection: that the islands were remote from our coast he answered that they were all of 1,000 miles to the eastward of the westernmost islands of the Aleutian archipelago and combined with these would give us practically the control of the entire Ame-ican coast of the north Pacific. "The Hawaiian Islands are about 7,000 miles on the average from the Asiatic coast and about an average of 2,500 miles from the North American Pacific. South of the Hawaiian Islands the distance to any other island where available harbors are to be found is more than 3,000 miles. It is this peculiar isolation of the Hawaiian group that makes it so valuable as the only place where ships of war or of commerce can get supplies of coal and water or find a haven of rest and facilities for repairing. The great distance which intervenes between these islands and the coast of Asia makes them the most important and indispensable locality in ihe world for the promotion of commerce and the defense of the American coast. "A cruiser or battleship, with a coal capacity necessary for carrying her 5,000 miles, steaming at .ten knots an hour, will exhaust her coal in less than 1,000 miles by doubling her speed. With a supply of coal well guarded at Pearl harbor our warships and our merchantmen can cross the Pacific at maximum speed or concentrate at distant points at .high speed^ thus largely in : creasiug their efficiency, while their adversaries, being under the .necessity of conserving coal or of risking the running out of coal away from. their own ports, must move at much less speed, being thus placed at great disadvantage!. "Finally there is the oriental question. Wei have seen the possible danger from Japan. China alone has an estimated population of 400,000,000—poor fighters, but good and industrious workers. Since Kussia has reached out for her vast coalfields uear the open sea and taken possession of Port Arthur, thus exciting the well founded jealousy of England and Germany, the prospective partition of China and the acquisition of Hawaii bear a relation to each other of more than local significance. Russia, England, Germany, France, are all after a market for their goods. Bather than give up the prospective trade of the 600,000,000 people along the Pacific coasts they will fight. "Meanwhile, should either of those great powers decide to eitend its sphero of influence across the Pacific to oui shores, the possession of Hawaii would be the first object they would see." F. A.

At Cran brook, in Keat, there is a rifle range -which has been used by the local volunteers for rifle practice, and at a distance of about six feet behind the targets there has been built a large stack of fagots which serves to stop the spent bullets. Last year a pair of nightingales selected the stack as the site for their nest, which they bcilt in the Interior at a distance of about 15 inches from the surface of tbe front facing the targets, aiwnt four feet from tha ground and almost in a direct line with the center of one of the targets, which are constructed of canvas and allow the bullets to pass through directly into th« fagots. In that situation the birds built their nest, batched their eggs and reared their yciung literally in tie midst of a Btorm o£ ballets, one of which ultimately provod fatal to one of the yotingsters. —Know ledge.
