NEW YORK. VON HOLST ON ANNEXATION. To Anniix Hawaii, He Says' Would Violate Our Fundamental Principle. CJ.ioago, Jan. 3L—At the banquet o' the Commercial club, which was held Saturday night at the Auditorium, Professor Voa Hoist, of Chicago university, delivered the principal address of the evening 1 , his subject being "Annexation of Hawaii." His remarks, although they were objected to by. many, were sufficiently in line with the -club's ma,- jority views to be followed by the adoption of a-resolution against the annexsi.- tlon of the islands. The professor objected to the annexai- tion cm general principles, first declaring it a repudiation of the doctrine of the fathers and a movement that has not been referred 1 to the people of ti»e United States. But, he said, that highly as all the other obligations are "they dwindle almost into insignificance compared with the two that hare thus far not been fdluded to. In the Declaration of Independence the nation has officially based its existence upon, the principle that governments 'derive their justpow- ers from the consent of the governed,.' "If annexation is effected in the manner proposed, this fundamental principle will b-± trampled under, foot, the unanimous ratification of the treaty by the Hawaiian senate jiotwlthstanclini?. For the overwhelming majority-of trie population has virtually had no voice m instituting this government; though now the lawful government, it actually represents only less than 4,000 out of about HO.ono. Even if the remaining lOfi.OOO were to pray as ardently as the 4,000 for annexation, \ve ought to shut out door against them 1 , because according: to the unanimous emphatic testimony of the^small minority, posing <is the Hawaiians, the 106,000 are utterly and permanently unfit for self-government, which is more than the life- breath, which is the very structural principle of this republic." ANSON NO LONGER THE BOSS. He Will Coase To Be Connect-ed with the ChicHiro Base Ball Club. Chicago, Jan. 31.—A. G. Spalding in an interview at New York Saturday practically admitted that Adrian C. Anson, captain of the Chicago League base ball club, would cease his connection with that club Tuesday, when his ten-year contract expires. The announcement is not surprising to the followers of base ball in Chicago. Th« matter has been pretty generally understood for some time, but the future of the captain has been the subject of much speculation and more : guesses than are ottered in a prize contest. Recently the impression has gone abroad that Anson will be -retained in the National League as A chief of umpires, and it is not improbable this will be given out when the fonna.lannounce- ment Is made of a fact that has long been an open secret—Anscai'« retirement from th£ dla.pjon.ii,." . _., REPLY TO BE That Which the House Wili Make to the Senate on Teller's Resolution. MEASURE IS TO EE VOTED UPOU, Ju.st as It Came ;Crom tlie Senate, and Rejected Decisively, If the House Leaders Do Not Miss Connection— Senate Kepub- licans AVho Call Themselves BimetalHsts \VaJit an Opportunity to Align Them- sfil VBK — Remarks on "Prosperity." Washington. Jan. 31.— It is the intention of the house leaders to offset as far as possible t.he action of the senate in passing the Teller resolution by killing that declaration of the sense of congress regarding; the payment of the gov- err.mer.t's coin bonds in silver, on an aye and no vote ir>. the house this week. This will be the feature of the proceedings. While the full Republican strength in the house cannot be commanded asainsi the resolution no doubt Js expressed by those who have made it their business to canvas the situation that the majority against it will be decisive. As soon as the resolution is reported back from the wstys and means committee, which may be today, the rules committee will bring in a special order lor its consideration. The time allowed for debate Is likely to be brief, as the leaders do not believe there is any necessity for protracted debate, and, moreover, a long discussion would measurably defeat the very purpose they have in view— namely,' a prompt and decisive -negative reply to the senate's. declaration. Proposed l j rojjr»mme of tlie->House. Bir.gley notified the Democratic members of the house ways and means committee, which has the Teller resolution, of the determination of the house leaders. At the same time he notified Democratic members of the committee what his general purpose was, substantially as follows: The resolution will be considered by the committee today and an adverse report made on it. No amendment or change in the phraseology will be made, but the adverse report will be on the resolution as it stands. This will be submitted to the house and plans made to dispose of the matter before the day's session closes probably. As to the procedure on the floor Dingley made no prediction beyond saying that it was proposed to dispose of the subject. This will doubtless require a special rule as to the debate. A basis for such e, rule was presented by Dalzell, a member of the rules committee, in the for mof a resolution providing that the resolution be considered immediately after, it is reported to the house. Senators Want to Align Themselves. the bimetalttrt Republican senators are still discussing the advisability, of renewing the "financial agitation in the senate by the introduction of some measure of their own, though they do not seem quite so intent upon this course as they appeared to be immediately succeeding- the vote upon the Teller resolution. If they present a resolution it probably will be a declaration to the effect that the United Slates is not committed to the gold : standard. Very few of them made speeches while the resolution was before the senate, but some of them now feel that there was -an effort made to put 'them in a false position and that they owe it to themselves to have their position thoroughly understood. They want to emphasize their antagonism to Secretary Gage's financial position. • This it is argued would serve to make it clear to the country where they stajjd. SOMK SERVICE STATISTICS Showing Who Has Put the Most Political Offlces'Under the Bules. Washington, Jan. 31.—During the session of the senate civil service committee Saturday President Proctor, of the civil service commission, was the witness. Under questions by Senator Lodge some interesting: figures were brought out as to the'extension of the classified service since 1883. They showed that, omitting the non-political branches, 60,897 persons had since 1SS3- been included in the classified service by executive action. To 32,987 the rules were applied during Republican administrations and 27,892 during Democratic administrations. Through the natural growth of the service 15,437 persons had come into service. By natural growth, non-political inclusions and executive extensions the total classified service is brought to 87,- 9l>8. Nominally by executive action during Cleveland's second term 41.768 posi- tii'.ns were classified and nominally by the order of May 6. 1896, 31.372 positiojis were covered into the service. These latter included, however, the navy yard employes, the non-political branches, and those examined non-competitively for positions in the Indian service, ieaving the number of political positions an- rluded in the order of May 6, 1896, 13,496. TWENTY-NINE PROPOSITIONS 5IADE. Some Offers Received by Secretaisc Ixmg as to Building an Ana or Plant, Washington, Jan. 31.—Bids were opened by Secretary Long Saturday for the building of an armor plate plant, and there were twenty-nine propositions to meet the different conditions of the government's advertisement. But two propositions for a complete plant were made arid only one of these made a. price—$3,325,905—for a complete plant, site, buildings, etc. The companies which are manufacturing armor did not bid. Offer of.sites for a plant, or for s. nominal sum of money, came from Muskegon, Mich.; Youngstown, O.; Escanaba, Mich.; Duluth, Minn.; Ensley, Ala.; Lorraine, O.; "Winthrop Harbor and Dock comn^^,,.of.,Shicago; Sheffield, Tenn.: Waukegan, Ills.; Detroit; Peoria. Ills.; Marquette. Mich., and An- nJstQB, Aj*- A. Jiarinette. Vis-, man of,; rerea to donate a site Tree" if the government would build a'$100,000 dock in the lake. A Marion county, Ind., corporation offered to donate forty acres of land and fifty wells of natural gas. Cannot Ratify the Treaty. Washington, Jan. 31.—There Is a grow- Isj; impression among the Hawaiian an- nexsrs in the senate that delay in the move to ratify the treaty is the safest for the consummation of their plans. ! They have made a very thorough canvass of the senate and have not discovered where they can get more than fifty- eisht votes, whereas to ratify the treaty they will have to have sixty. They feel that even some of those fifty-eight are not entirely reliable. In view of these circumstances they realize that nothing is to be lost by an informal postponement, especially when :t comes naturally through the pressure of other business, and some of them believe that everything is to be. gained by that course. Some \Vidon-s Not Entitled to Pensions. "Washington, Jan. 31.—Among the pension decisions rendered Saturday by Assistant Secretary of the Interior Davis was a case of considerable importance affecting the right to pension of widows und«-r the act of June 27. 1S90. In his decision the assistant secretary points out that the claiming woman owns real, and personal property worth about $9,900 and says it is manifest that she is not without other means of support than her daily labor, a condition necessary in order to obtain pension under the ict of June, 1S90. Free Delivery Seems to Pay. "Washing-ton, Jan. 31.—A tablehasbeen prepared by the postoffice department comparing the cost of the free delivery service at fifty of the largest postoffices for 'the fiscal year 1S9S-7 with that for the fiscal year 1890-91. It shows that the percentage of increase in the cost of thi- free delivery during the six years -covered by the table ties been 24.6 per cent, while the population has increased 35.62 and the gross receipts have increased 2S.4S per cent. Michigan Not to Get Those Lands. Washington, Jan. 31.—In accordance with the recent decision of the supreme court in the case of the Michigan Land and Lumber company against Rust, the secretary of the interior has declined to issue patent to the state of Michigan to certain lands in the Marquette land district certified by the land office in 1S53 as swamp lands and afterward declared by the same authorities not to be of such character. Honors for Carrol D. Wright. Washington, Jan. 31.—Hon. Carrol D. Wright, United States commissioner of labor, is in receipt of a cablegram announcing his election as a member of the Institute of France. He has also been informed that he has been elected an honorary member of the Imperial Academy of Science of Russia, the highest scientific distinction that can be awarded in that country. 'Teller (lets Congratulations. "Washington, Jan. 31.—Senator Teller received a number of telegrams Friday night and Saturday congratulating him and the silver forces in the senate upon the passage of the Teller resolution. Among the congratulatory messages was one from Hon. W. J. Bryan, which was confined to a mere expression of satisfaction over the result. President Starts the Show.

House Continues to Talk Politics. Washington, Jan. 31.—The District of Columbia appropriation bill was before the house Saturday, but the day was spent in political debate. The contro- verted question as to whether prosperity had arrived attracted the most attention and interest, and testimony pro and con \vas offered throughout the day. President Is 5fl Years Old. Washington.^Jan. 31.—Saturday was the anniversary of the president's birthday. He was born in 1843. UNGALLANT COLLEGE STUDENTS. So llougli with a Co-Ed That She Is Joined for Life. Iowa City, la., Jan. 31.—Twenty-three members of the sophomore class have been suspended from the State university for the part they took In preventing the annual freshmen banquet held two weeks ago. On the night appointed for the banquet a number of freshmen, including three young ladies, were abducted forcibly, put into carriages and driven away into the country. While the ladies were being forced into the carriage one of them had the tendons of her knee loosened in the struggle, and she will be crippled for life. The faculty has been investigating-, the matter, and as a result twenty- three oi the sophomores were suspended Saturday for the remainder of the year. Among those let out is the crack ball player of the college, and athletic circles are deeply stirred up over the matter Women's Heads To Be Carved. Albany, X. Y., Jan. 31.—Superintendent of Public Works Aldridge has decided on some changes in connection with the artistic work of the grand stairway in the capitol building.

And the Kodies Luy Frozen in Their Om Blood When Fouud—Girl Was B»t IS Tears Old and Brutal Lust Is the Only Visible Cause of the Deviltry—Six Men Arrested and One of Them Identified a* the Probable Murderer. Burlington. la.. Jan. 31.—The deadand frozen bodies of Mrs. Fannie Rathburn. and her li-year-old daughter Mary wen- found Saturday afternoon in pools of frozen blood in their lonely home west of the city. The woman had been struck in the head with an ax, which. leaned against a nearby wall. Her head was split open. The body of the child was found in a bed room off the kitchen, her throat cut from ear to ear. Evidence of a horrible struggle for Hfewere on all sides. It. is evident that the young girl had been brutally assaulted, by the murderer, although her torn clothing indicated that she had fought desperately for her honor. Having- accomplished his deed the villain cut her throat. This was not accomplished without a great struggle, the girl's hands showing cuts where she had attempted to defend herself. Blood was scattered all over the bed and on the floor. The body of the woman was found to be badly eaten by rats, ajid presented 'a horribe sight. Clue to the Dastard's Identity. Several arrests have been made and the police are actively engaged in running down several clues. It is believed that the crime was committed Sunday night, Jan. 23, and'that the bodies have been in the house ever since. The woman was a widow of good repute and quite poor, and no motive but the' outrage of her daughter can be supposed. Five men are now under arrest, but the officers refuse to give their names. One is known to be a man named. Storms. who, with a brother for wJiom search i* being made, is said to have been at the houso of Mrs. Rathburn a week, ago last night. In the dress of the girl was fount! a black and white necktie, which • it is thought she tore from her assail- • ant in the struggle. This will probably lead to the murderer's identity. Lad Kocojrnlzos the Jfccktje. A lad named Peterson says he called at the home of-the Rathburns several • weeks ago and found two men the-re., . One asked Mary Rathburn to fix his . tie. The boy now identifies the tie • found on the body of Mary Rathburn as the same one. He also picked out the man named Storms from a number of prisoners as the one who wore the tie. The live 'men under arrest are all of the Storms gang, and have tough reputations. The police believe that one or more of them committed the crime. Bloodstains were found on Storms' underclothing. .• FOUR DEAD AND THIRTY HURT. Others Seriously Wounded in a Hallway Accident, ID .Main*.
