TO GET RID OF DOLE
Hawaiian Territorial Legislature Asks
that Governor Be Btmoved.
A MEMORIAL TO THE RESIDENT
A Problem Thmt Will Face the Chief
Executive on His Betarn l'resldfat
XoIe I. Utnounccd a. Hostile to
the Island's Beat Interests.
HONOLULU, May 5. (Via San
Praneisro May 11.) The first terri
torial legislature of Hawaii came to
an end the evening of April 30, ac
cording to Governor Dole, and on the
next night according to the majority
of both honsei.
The legislature ended its existence
at loggerheads with the governor all
along the line, and without having
passed a single one ot the important
.measures to which the home rulers
were committed, except the county gov
rnment act, which the governor killed
by a vest pocket veto.
The last act of the house the evening
of April 30 was to pass a concurrent
resolution containing a memorial to
President McKinley asking for the re
moval of Governor Dole. He is charged
with having hindered the work of the
session by his hostility toward the leg
islature, withholding information and
reports that were called for and refus
ing to co-operate with the lawmakers.
The president is asked in the reso
lution to use his influence in behalf of
an extra session of the legislature to
transact general legislation, which
Dole refuses to grant.
The Hawaiians claim they have not
had time in which tc work out the
plans of lawmaking they had formed
in the thirty days of the regular ses
sion. In conclusion the home rulers ask
that Dole be removed, if the president
sees no other way to bring about an
extra session of the territorial legis
lature, declaring that the governor has
acted in such a manner as to lose the
conlidence of a majority of the people
of the territory, and charging that he
has -not dealt fairly with the home rule
The concurrent resolution passed
through both houses by large majori
ties, all the native home rule members
voting for it.
- Governor Dole created a sensation
in both houses by informing the com
mittee sent to him to ask for an extra
session that one of his reasons for not
-granting an extra session was that he
had been reliably informed that brib
. ery was" t'tking place.
Both houses passed a resolution de
manding proof. In reply the governor
stated that general charges of bribery
had been made in the local papers and
on the floor of the senate, but had
not been investigated, in spite of the
appointment of committees to look
into thera. and that the matter was
being investigated by the governor
with a view to punishing the offend
ers if evidence against them could be

Nebraska Dealer Rally to Defend Dairy
OMAHA, May 13. The Nebraska
Butter and Egg Dealers' association
and the State Dairymen's association,
representing practically all of the
dairy interests in the state, will give
united support to State Food Commis
sioner Bassett in his efforts to enforce
the law against the illegitimate sale of
imitation butter and other imitation
Twenty-five members of the Butter
and Egg Dealers' association met in
Omaha in response to an emergency
call issued by the president and secre
tary of the organization, and with pne
voice they agreed to stand by Commis
sioner Bassett in any step he might
take toward the protection of the dairy
interests. Mr. Bassett was appointed
food commissioner by Governor Savage
and it is said he will take charge of
his office in a few days. He will work
under the law enacted by the legisla
ture of 1897.
Morris Friend of Lincoln, represent
ing the Beatrice Creamery company of
that place, said to a reporter:
"There is no reason why the law
against the sale of imitation butter
cannot now be enforced. The legisla
ture of 1897 did not make proper pro
vision for its enforcement, but this
year the lawmakers remedied the evil
committed two years ago, and, so far
as we know, the law will stand the test
of any court in the land. The trouble
for years was due to the failure of the
legislature to make appropriations for
the salary of the commissioner and his
"In brief, the state food law provides
a penalty for selling colored imita
tions of butter. It will allow the sale
of butterine, but only in its natural
color. This places both butter and but
terine on an equal footing. What the
dairymen object to is the sale of but
terine or other butter imitations that
are colored to resemble in appearance
the pure dairy product. It is this de
ceit that we want to stamp out, and
we are of the opinion that we have the
means at hand to do it with. The law
also requires restaurants, hotels and
other public eating houses that serve
butter imitations to give notice of the
fact by posting signs in a conspicuous
place setting forth that butterine, or
whatever the imitation may be called,
is served in the place."
The State Dairymen's association
will probably fellow the example of the
butter and egg dealers and hold a spe
cial meeting within the next few days
with a similar purpose in view. The
officers of that association have already
signified their intention of standing
back to back with the food commis
sioner in his effort to enforce the law,
but it is proposed to make the influ
ence of the organization still stronger
by calling a special meeting for the
purpose of taking united action.
The present indications point to a
clash with the imitation butter manu
facturers. They object most strenu
ously to the restriction against the use
of coloring, and it is possible proceed
ings may be instituted in the courts to
test the constitutionality of the act.
Mr. Bassett, in his official capacity,
will demand compliance with the law,
and if any violators are caught they
will be prosecuted. He will have the
moral support of every butter and
dairy man in the state, and they to
gether feel they can wield a mighty

WALL STREET DEALING
Frantic Transactions Take Place on th
THE END IS NOT YET IN SIGHT
Leader Confer en the Sentence of Snorts
Determine Upon the Condition On
Which They Are Willing to Settle
Mora;' and Hill Are Oa Top.
NEW YORK, May 10. Bitter stress
developed in Wall street by the sec
ond hour of trade on the Stock Ex
change today. The violence of the
emotion had spent much of its
force, at least for the time being,
when the chairman's gavel fell, an
nouncing the close of the day's pro
ceedings. The casualties were great
and the field of battle was strewn
with the wounded, and maybe with
the dying. But of actual fatalities
none were recorded of importance
during the day. During the height
of the panic rumors of insolvencies
were handed about more quickly than
they could be reported. But no con
firmation could be had of the intima
tions of financial wreck. Those against
whom the rumors pointed refused
even to show any sign of distress
and professed themselves ready to
meet all obligations. In more than
one instance the answer to these ru
mors was for a representative of the
house to go upon the Stock Exchange
and place leans to a large amount,
as indicating the abundance of re
sources at hand.
But notwithstanding these and sim
ilar devices for keeping up credit and
confidence, the fact was obvious from
the crash of values on the exchange
that credits and borrowing power
were shrinking at too prodigious rate
not to leave the mind of the whole
financial world in a condition of in
tense strain. But the indications at
the close of the day were strong that
the , principal damage had been
wrought upon the speculative class or
upon holders of securities on margin,
for whatever purpose. The banks
have been so well protected by recent
extensions of the margins exacted in
the market value of collateral over
the amount of loans placed that they
had little to fear short of an absolute
wiping out of market values. The
shrinkage of collateral made it neces
sary for the banks in many cases to
exact additicnal collateral during the
day and this added much to the dis
tress for a time.
But late in the dealings the prin
cipal banks in the financial district
agreed to form a pool and raise a fund
to loan, putting the money rate
down to 6 per cent on the Stock Ex
change. The bid for money had been
run up to 60 per cent and was threat
ening to keep alive the panic. The
dozen banks quickly came to an agree
ment to raise $16,000,000. with implied
willingness to advance the sum If nec
essary. There were heavy loans placed also
by individual banks, ranging in some
cases to $2t,000,000 and 130,000,000.
Through the early part of the day
hankers exacted the market rate for
loans. But with the growing naed to
suppress the panic they offered the
rate down to 6 per cent Old cus
tomers of the banks were not charged
over 6 per cent at any time, but when
outsiders came in asking for new
loans, the law of supply and demand
was allowed to run its course.
The state of excitement was very
apparent all through the financial dis
trict during the period of the panic,
but there were few sensational scenes.
Now and then a white-faced woman
would appear from a cab outside a
broker's office and would be driven off
ii a fainting condition over receiving
a message from the interior. Wher
ever any near approach could be made
to a ticker or to a board on which
quotations were posted, there were
great throngs of excited speculators
scrambling for a view of the course
of the market But the real stress
of the occasion came upon the men
who were shut up in either their pri
vate offices or those of brokers, or
who were struggling and fighting on
the floor of the exchange.

CLAIM CRISIS IS TASSCD.
IndnstrUl Leader Asserts that Financial
Storm Has Spent Its Farjr.
NEW YORK, May 10. A banker
who participated in' the movement to
relieve the market this evening ma'de
this statement to the Associated
"We loaned $1,000,000 in the market
after 10 o'clock today, some of it as
low as 6 per cent, and feel that the
crisis is over. I do not believe that
a single large loan will go down.
There have been tremendous losses.
Thousands of accounts, representing
millions of dollars, are wiped out
But the banks are firm and the large
operators are, I think, capable of
caring for themselves. You see, they
have been taking large profits and are
capable of standing up. At present
prices I feel that stocks are a good in
vestment and look for heavy buying
orders. A good day and the market
will be steady again. The banks
acted together today, but there was
no consonance of agreement about it
We placed about $16,000,000 in the ag
gregate and the moral effect was
good. Wall street could not stand
many days like this, but as it is the
storm is weathered and the situa
tion will improve from the opening
An industrial leader made this state
ment to the Associated Press:
"I believe the worst of the storm is
oer. They have been conferences of
importance among the larger financi
ers and it has been decided that every
man of standing in the street shall
be protected. I had thought there
would be failures, but there are in
fluences strong enough to avert at
work and I am no sure they will suc

ARMOUR GETS SIOUX CITY PUNT.
Acqaires Interoatlon&l Packing Com
SIOUX CITY, May 10. It became
known here today that Armour & Co.
of Chicago have purchase the old In
ternational Packing plant and will
operate it The plant was built by the
Silberhorns at a cost of $400,000. It
covers five acres of ground. The ca
pacity of the plant is 500 cattle, 3,250
hogs and 1,000 sheep.
In 1899 the plant was acquired by
the International Packing company,
which operated it until the reorganiza
tion of the company when the Sioux
City Provision company took charge
a few weeks ago.
Sioux City people are rejoicing be
cause of the fact that a rivalry for
business is expected to spring up be
tween the Armour plant and the Cud

it was learned that it was 26 to 3.
The meeting was prolonged from 11
o'clock until 2. The intense interest
in the question to be acted upon was
evinced by the large attendance, only

UNION FACIFIC rROTECTING ITSELf
Pnrehase of Northern PaelSe Shares Is to
Preveat Rival' BeaeStlag Kaha Loefe
Hay mw Assent to Trlangalar Arrange
sneat With the Northerners.
NEW YORK, May 9. The Evening
Post, in discussing the Northern Pa
cific situation, says: Kuhn, Loeb &
Co., it was creditably stated today,
have acquired sufficient Northern Pa
cific stock to prevent, if they desire,
the approval of the Burlington pur
chase by Northern Pacific sharehold
ers. Their purchases for the most part
have been made within a week. Some
compromise will be made, as the par
ties in conflict are so important, and
Union Pacific interests, which the
management of that property felt were
threatened by the aggressive policy ot
the Northern Pacific, will be protected
by agreement or by Mr. Harriman and
perhaps other Union Pacific directors
going into the Northern Pacific board.
These -are matters which necessarily
are still unsettled, but Kuhn, Loeb &
Co. now have virtually the power to
determine whether the Northern Pa
cific will secure the Burlington, and
whether assurances given that their
Union Pacific interests will be fully
protected. It appears that they would
not push their advantage so far as to
stop the merger proposed by Mr. Hill.
Dealing with the relations of things
In the turmoil of Wall street the
financial writer of the Evening Post,
in a news leader in its edition this
evening, says: The fundamental fact
in the Northern Pacific situation was
that the Burlington deal is placed in
jeopardy, as matters stand at present
Union Pacific Interests, who were
alarmed at the danger of their prop
erty, lying in the control of the Bur
lington by the northern transconti
nental line, have bought the ratifica
tion of the Burlington purchase by the
Northern Pacific shareholders unless
some agreement is made with them
which will protect their interests suf
ficently. The corner in the shares was un
precedented. That development re
sulted, it is said, from Mr. Keene's
clever appreciation of the situation in
the stock, the legitimate demand for
which had heavily reduced the floating
supply. The corner is a secondary
aspect, though the more spectacular
one to the public, in a movement of
far-reaching consequences, possibly
putting a stop to the plans for the
greatest of railroad mergers, upsetting
President Hili's audacious plan to have
the Northern Pacific control Burling
The policy of Kuhn. Loeb & Co. has
been essentially one of self-protection,
and being now in a dominant position
where the "balance of power" In the
western railway situation, so rudely
disturbed by Mr. Hill's Burlington
deal, has been restored, they will con
tent themselves. Rather than create
lasting hostilities among the great
western railroads which would follow
the abandonment of the Burlington
deal, there probably will be made a
triangular arrangement, with the
Union Pacific sharing the control as
well as the Northern Pacific and the
Great Northern, under a modification
of the burden of the guaranty.
DUE TO CORNER ON CORN.
That is Why Starch Mills Are to Be
NEW YORK, May 9. William F.
Piel, Jr., president of the National
Starch Manufacturing company, when
seen at his residence in Brooklyn to
night, said that it was true that the
company had ordered all its factories
closed. He said that it was done on
account of the present corner in corn
at Chicago. Mr. Piel said the company
did not care to purchase corn while
the corner is on, but would wait un
til the market became stable. He said
it was simply a case of business pro
tection, and that he thought the shut
downs would not last for any great
period of time.

PENDER, Neb., May 11. A young
man named Charles Robinson, who
had been employed by Charles G. Frey,
five miles west of Pender, was drown
ed in Logan creek. He was driving
some cattle across the creek. The creek
being high on account of recent heavy

he undertook to swim his horse around
them, when he got into deep water
and the horse could not keep up and
sank. He clung to the horse until he

to reach shore but was to oexhausted

Oao Wife and Three Haahands.
Lizzie Anderson, ot Erie. Pa., aged
37, was married thn times, and yet
was not legally separated from any
of her husbands. Death brought them
together, and they shook hands silent
ly over her coffin. She met and mar
ried Jesse Samson when but a young
girl, but eloped with Moses Arm
strong. Soon afterward she left him
and was wedded to Noah Anderson.
The husbands were sworn enemies and
never spoke. No legal proceedings
were taken and the matter never got
into the courts. Then she got sick
and was thought to be dying. She ral

dying bedside. After the doctors had
given her nephew up. she insisted that
as a last resort, he be given a treat
ment of Dodd's Kidney Pills.
From the very first dose, the tide
turned in his favor. His life was
saved, and he is hale and hearty to
day. This case and its cure has amazed
the physicians, and is the sensation of
the hour. It is interesting to note

forms, such as Rheumatism, Sciatica,
Bladder and Urinary Trouble and Fe
male Weakness disappear before it,

Bright's Disease. Diabetes and Dropsy,
which have always been regarded as
incurable, are yielding just as easily.
Dodd's Kidney Pills are fast super

ness and suffering has its origin in the
Kidneys, the use of this wonderful
medicine is becoming almost universal..
