[ nfestigatlng the Recent Dijaster on Lake
EVIDENCE BEFORETHE CORONER
Republican Primaries Salvationists
Vindicated Officer * of the Good
Notea and New * .
The Came of the Dloaiter.
The Inquiries into the causes of the
Lake Manawa disaster continued yester
day. It seems to bo the general impres
sion that little will bo accomplished
along the line of prosecuting the owner
of the boat. It is claimed that the
waters are not navigable in the eyes of
the law , and that it is not therefore
necessary for the steamers to bo in
spected , nor for the engineers to have
licenses. Tha law covering the matter
is quoted as follows , and it leaves the
question open as to the fact , whether tfio
lake , as a part of the Missouri , comes
under the provisions of these sections :
"Kvery vessel propelled in whole or In
part by steam shall bo doomed a steam ves
sel within the meaning of this title , "
"All < team vessels navigating any waters
of the United States which are common high
ways ot commerce , or open to zeneral or
competitive navigation , excepting public
vessels of the United States , vessels of other
countries , and boats propelled In whole or In
part by steam for navigating canal * , shall
be subject to the provisions of this title. "
There have been rumors to the effect
that there were so many of the passen
gers of the Ill-fated boat , who were intox
icated , that their actions caused the boat
to sink. This 1ms aroused the indigna
tion of some of the Council 1 ! luffs people ,
who wore on board , and who rank among
the best citizens of the place. They do
not propose to have any such Intimation
oven , sent abroad as the probable cause
of the disaster , us they declare there is
not the slightest foundation in fact for it.
They insisted yesterday on haying the
boat raised , and sent out into the deep
water with a crowd uoon her , of about
the same number as on the fatal night ,
and determine whether she could lloac or
The coroner's Jury consist ! of three of
the most responsible citizens and they
have been carrying on the investigation
in the most thorough manner. They de
termined from the start to leave nothing
undone to satisfy the public demand for
a thorough sifting of the facts.
As has boon shown by the testimony ,
the boat was an old hull , over the outside
of which another one was built of pine
flooring , leaving a chamber between the
old and the now. The flooring on top ,
extending ever those chambers , was in
ono place broken , the hole being about
8x10 inches. If the water oaran over the
boat it could easilv run into ono of those
chambers through this hole and
would thus make an additional weight ,
and a movable one which would
tend to wreck the boat easily. The con
struction of the boat appears to have
been of the crudest possible naturn , and
its management was in the hands of
amateurs. Such are the facts as ad
mitted by all.
Although not as a direct result of the
investigation , the county attorney has
decided to prosecute any and all persons
who sell liquors at or about Lake Man-
awa. He declares that the bar at the
hotel and at the other places must close
at once , or ho will make it decidedly in
teresting for them.
The coroner again resumed the investi
gation yn tnnlny. Thn litst witnp.it was
Walter S. Goodrich , fireman on the
Northwestern. Ho tcsUlied : Was on the
steamer Manawa when she sank on the
night of August 4. Think there wore
about twenty-live persons on board. We
got out in the lake about 300 yards. I
was standing about center of the boat.
The man at the helm shouted to the en
gineer to put on the inspirator and for
everybody to go forward. She then went
down immediately bow first. Started to
swim to the shore , but thinking I could
not swim that distance returned to the
boat and got on top of the canvas awn
ing. There were three or four
persons in the water shouting for
help at the timo. Engine and machinery
seemed to me to work all right previous
to the sinking. Engine exhausted well.
Pilot shouted to put on inspirator , which
meant to put more water into the boiler.
I was on left hand side about center of
the boat ; it was very dark ; I couldn't
see how many wore on ; dent think the
boat was out of trim. At the order , 1
started to go ahead and should judge
twelve to fifteen wont to bow , besides
myself. I didn't look back to see how
many behind mo obeyed the order. Im
mediately on going forward I got in
water over my shoo tops. I suspected
the boiler was going to burst , by the
order for more water.
I stood with one foot on the seat and
hand on an upright before the accident.
Bi'lievo more than half the passengers
were in the stern. The majority of the
passengers were in the stern before that
order to go forward. Some were in the
bow bni from the amount of talk believe
the majority of passengers were in the
sterd. 1 thought it was blowing pretty
hard ; wouldn't have taken my wlfo with
mo had she been there , as I didn't con
sider it any too safe a trip. Think waves
probably washed ever Into boat. Sonlo
ono on ono of the boats on the beach as
wo started said ho would b't f50 wo
never would make the trip safely. I saw
ono life preserver as I got on ana thought
I'd stay by it. but loft it without think
ing as the order came to go forward.
O. P. Anderson testified : "Am a
switchman on the Northwestern ; was on
the steamer when she sank. I think 1
was about the first ono on the boat. She
tried to leave the dock twice before she
got away. First I noticed was the water
around fire box and in a second the boat
wont down. I stood by steam guago and
noticed the steam very low. The gas
man , Fcrson , passed by mo toward
stern and sat down before the accident
happened. 1 saw his body when it was
rccovorod and identified it as that of the
man who passed mo. The Hag staff was
on the bow and ho went to
the stern. Ho told the crowd
to bo still and not Interfere with the man
at the wheel. There was no disturbance.
Never saw Person before. I noticed his
full dress shirt particularly that night.
It was the impression of all those who
heard Audcrson's testimony that ho was
mistaken in regard to Fcrson's position ,
and , perhaps , it being Fersou.
During his cross-examination by County
Attorney Dailev ho said : "There was no
quarreling ; I should think seven or eight
were in the rear , five or six about the
boiler , and the balance in the bow , there
being about twenty-five on board. The
boat seemed to bo trimmed and balanced
properly. Uefore we got on the bout the
waves were three or four feet high ;
couldn't say about them when wo were
out in water. Noticed water in fire-box ;
looked back and it looked as if it was
over the deck. "
A draft of the steamer was shown to
the witness and it was with difficulty that
he could tell which part of the steamer
ho was on. Witness finally stated by
way of conclusion that ho saw two life
preservers on going on the steamer.
Harvey llalloway , owner of the
steamer Manawa recalled : "I alut cer
tain how many life preservers wo had on.
I think wo had four or five , and perhaps
more. Got them from Woolsey the day
of the accident. The wooden fawn scats
would hold up throe or four people ami
acted as life preservers. That night 1
didn't toll the nasscngers the lawn
would serve M Ufa pre
servers. . Had four or five of
these jcnts. The Lady of the Lake
just landed at tha hotel dock as I started
for the beach. On arrival at the beach I
didn't whistle as I feared those that
didn't know I was going to leave the
dock would como out and ovnr crowd the
boat. When I left the hotel dock thn
Lady of the Lake requested me to whistla
five times while at the beach , if I couldn't
bring over nil the people that were to
como on our boats. The passengers were
mostly nil standing up , didn't want to sit
down in the rain. I don't know that
they Interfered with the operations of the
bo.it in any way. The crowd were talka
tive but not boisterous. "
The jury then requested the coroner to
have the boat raised onto the beach for
their inspection ; that they would leave
for the lake at 2:30 : o'clock and wishnd to
inspect the steamer throughout. They
then , at 12 o'clock , took a recess until 2
About 8 o'clock the jury went to the
lake to oxamiuo the steamer. It was
found unnecessary to raise her onto the
beach , as she had Jloatcd since Saturday
last without any water getting into
her , showlug no leakage below the water
The steamer's deck is flush with the
top of her sides except the pit where the
boiler is fed. Directly under the deck ,
and eight inches above the water line ,
ns she floats , are many leaks , in fact ,
holes , from a half inch to one , eight or
ten inches long. With these holes lead
ing into the chamber between the
old hull and the new one ,
and these holes only five or six inches at
most above water when the steamer was
loaded with ton to fifteen people , as fllic
was while the jury were inspecting her
in deep water , it seems impossible , with
the waves ten inches high and the wash
from the steamer's wheel-i , to keep
the water out of the chambers.
The verdict will not bo reached until
this evening , ns the jury will wait until
after the funeral of Charlie Fcrson before
they meet to determine upon their verdict ,
The Salvationist Freed.
The Salvationist , Relandor , arrested
some time ago , had a hearing before
Judge Aylesworth yesterday. The court
room was brilliantly lighted by red
shirts , and the liveliest interest was felt
by the Salvation Army , for each member
of the barracus contributed to pay the at
torneys for defending their brother and
send him "happy on the way. " The de
fendant sat stringing pantaloon buttons
on a bunt hair pin , allowing his attor
neys to do the work. They did it well
and soon had him discharged. The
claim was made by Mrs. Hasty that he
had threatened her with prosecution for
some serious offense if she did not de
liver over to him a trunk belonging to
her daughter , who had run away with
the army and gone into camp at Fre
mont. The accused and the salvation
sister who went with him to Mrs.
Hasty's house , both swore against Mrs.
Hasty's statement of the affair , andbomcr
two to ono , swore her out of court. The
proceedings were tinged with humor ,
and oven the judge caught some of it , up
setting his dignity so far as to cause him
to perpetrate a terrible pun. A demurrer
was filed ueuinst the Information , and in
sustaining it , he remarked apologetically
for Mr. Ware , who drew it up , that the
information was probably drawn very
hastily by Mrs. Hasty. The red coated
members of the army were almost over
joyed at the result of the hearing , and as
the banner carrier expressed it : "I toll
you we TO going to stay right by until wo
whip the devil clear out of Council Bluffs.
Every time the devil gets mad , and tries
to strike back , wo just go at him , and I
toll you the army is a big one. and we
wear right across our shirts thn words to
conquer. They cau fetch us up nil limy
want for breaking laws. I tell you we
will just stay by till tlioond. "

THE HAWAIIAN KINGDOM.
Monarchy of the Inlands TV hero the
Itcccnt Political Itcvoln-
The peaceful uprising which has just
shorn the king of the greater part of his
power recalls attention to the islands. It
is litllo more thana , hundred years since
the Sandwich Islands , now called the
Hawaiian kingdom1 , were discovered by
Captain Cook , yel the writer ventures to
think that these islands , which have
since worked out for thomsclvos the
problem of constitutional government ,
could teach much , both in civilization
and in the art of legislation to far older
countries. The Hawaiian kingdom is
situated in the Pacific ocean , about two
thousand and live hundred miles from
Vancouver , in a direct line to Australia.
It consists of eight principal Islands-
Hawaii , Maul , Oahu , Kaiiai , Molokai.
Lanal , Milhau , Kahoolawo and several
small islets. Its population is about one
hundred thousand. Nihoa , the most
motherly of the proupc , is an interesting
but uninhabited island. It is the breed
ing place of myriads of birds , and con
tains many valuable and rare ferns. Of
the larger islands , seven out of
the eight are inhabited , Kahoo
lawo having been abandoned some
years ago. The Hawaiian kingdom
is a constitutlanal monarchy. The pre
rogatives of the crown and the privileges
of the legislative assembly are defined by
a constitution. The constitution is based
on that of Great Britain , and has been
found to work smoothly. The legislative
power of the three estates of the king
dom is vested in the king and legislative
assembly. This latter branch of the leg
islature consists of twoordors.lho nobles ,
with thn title ot "honorable , " appeintcu
by the king , and the representatives of
the people , elected biennially.
The commerce of the Hawaiian king
dom is , in proportion to its population ,
without any equal in the world. Thn ex
ports for 183 ! ) wore about 25 per head
of the population. New South Wales
coming next in importance with about
12. The imports during 18S5 were
about 10 per head of the population.
The largest share of the trade of the king
dom is done with the United States , fos
tered not only by the proximity of Amer
ica , but by a very favorable treaty of re
ciprocity. Many classes of merchandise
from the United States are ad
mitted free into the Islands ,
and for this concession Hawaiian
sugars are admitted free Into the states.
The principal exports from the Hawaiian
Islands are sugar , rice , wool , dried ban
anas , sheep skins , hides , molasses , goat
skins and fresh bananas. Sugar growing
is the principal industry of the' country ,
and with the object of further improving
this important branch of commerce the
government during the last few years
have imported labor from Japan. St.
Michael's and Maderia. From the latter
island alone 10,000 'Portugese have emi
grated. The ofliola returns for 1855 show
a production of 171.860,814 pounds , out of
Which the United States took 171,340,625
pounds. The crop of rice for 1885 was
large , though it fell short of the produc
tion of the four preceding years. The
states consumed" 7,807,200 pounds of a
total production of,7,807,253 pounds. The
entire exports of fresh bananas , 60,040
bunches ; of goat skins , 10,782 ; hides ,
10,045 ; und sheepskins , 8,78 ! ) , were con
sumed by America. , The crop of wool ,
amounting to 471,121 pounds , were ex
ported to England. The trade between
Hawaii and Great liritain and her colon
ies is 15.08 per cent of the total
imports of the , islands , calculating
the trade between Hong Kong and
Hawaii at 1.10 per cent. The imports
from all other countries , with the excep
tion of the United States , amount alto-
pother to 7.05 per cent of the whole im
port trade of Hawaii , or not one-half of
the trade with Great liritain and her col
onies alone. Distance and the disadvant
age of not having a treaty similar to the
American , operate greatly to the detri
ment of the British trade with the islands.
There is , however , every reason to hope
that the completion of the Panama canal ,
the Canadian Pacific railway , and the
proposed British cable to the colonies ,
which is to touch at Honolulu and for
which the Hawaiian government have al
ready granted a handsome subsidy , may
have the effect of improving the commer
cial relations between Hawaii and Great
Britain and her colonies. The public
debt of the kmcdom is not more than
210,000 , the greater part of which was
spent on the importation of labor for the
sugar plantations. There is no country
where the burden of taxation is so light
as in the Hawaiian Islands. The tax on
real and personal property is only i per
cent , or 15o. onthc 100. The direct tax
ation likewise includes carriages , 20s.
each ; poll tax,4s.school ; tax 8s. percaput ;
road tax , $8s. , and carts , 8s.
