There are nearly 400 Chinese affected by the ruling of the Treasury Department. The news that Congressman Kahn, of California, has prepared a bill to make the leper setttloment on the Island of Mo lokal a national lazaretto, has deeply stirred all Hawaii. There is strong op position to the measure in every quarter, and no effort will he spared to prevent the bill from becoming a law.

An -assault is being made by local at torneys, upon the Hawaiian law regarding opium. The lav on the statute books makes it a crime to have opium in pos session at all. It is claimed and general ly agreed among the attorneys that this $s'. in conflict with United Slates laws, which allow the importation, and conse quently possession- of the drug.

In the December edition, which appeared today. Finance says editorially under the head of "Throttled Opportunities": "In the strictly mineral section of Ore gon, there are opportunities which the casual observer sees, and the casual ob serves marvels that the world knows f.o little of them, and that they are so slight ly developed. "Only a trifle of investigation serves to show the causes for this. They are those most formidable of all obstacles to development an inordinate selfishness and an ultra-conservatism. "Foreign capital Is disposed to look askance at what local capital, when ther Is such, does not show any willingness to be identified with. Nor Is this In any way remarkable. Indeed, the contrary would be. There has been bad manage ment of some partly developed Oregon mining properties, and there have been promoters identified with some of them who could not claim any close relation ship to necessary capital themselves, nor to any unusual degree of integrity, ov even good sense. Mining development and the mining business as such, how ever, has no monopoly of those unfortu nate attributes. Even the greatest ana soundest and most carefully scrutinized financial Institutions themselves are not infrequently made prey for people of this 'class. And that the mining opportunities of Oregon have not been brought to sucn state of development as they should is, in part, though we are constrained to be lieve, perhaps the lesser part, attributa ble to the misconceptions and the con servatism of focal financial people. It Is, we believe, a fact that should any Port land banking institution, for instance, be known to lend any considerable support to a mining enterprisp, however worthy and substantial, its heavier depositors and the moneyed people whose patron age it enjoyed would so thoroughly dis approve of such a course that not a few of them would withdraw their accounts. "In this matter Portland'is not unlikely to commit the same error that Denver did when it permitted Colorado Springs to become the great world-wide-known cen ter T)f mining transactions, though Den ver "had the advantage of age, and ex perience, and capital. It Is n6t at air Im possible that when the mining opportu nities of Oregon shall have "been further developed,' some community, now small and unknown, perhaps even unborn, will spring up in a night to become and re main the mining market of Oregon, with all that that implies. "There is yet another stumbling block In the way of the Oregon mines, and It Is the more formidable of the two. Human selfishness not infrequently kills the goose that lays'the golden egg, and this is quite as often exemplified in mining fields as elsewhere. In these last it does not .usually .manifest Itself ln .the earlier stages, but comes with the advent of the more powerful operators and comblna tlonsl In the case of Oregon, the disease appeared with the mineral, and no rem edy for it has as yet been successfully applied. The history of the so-called mm. ing development of Oregon which has been no development at all except In such few isolated cases as only prove the coi rectness of our contentions has been one of stumbling upon a rich deposit ana straightway gathering In every square foot thnt could be seen through a long range field glass by the utilization of mining claims filed by sisters and cousins and aunts. This accomplished, the bo'fl and Intrepid discoverer of mineral wealth sat down and waited for other people to make his mines valuable and pay him a monumental and luscious price for his holdings and his great service to man kind. That he did not readily find somt one who would straightway empty thetr pockets for him accounts for the fact that there are scores and scores of splen did claims In Oregon today which have been held from 10 to 20 years and have not had earth enough disturbed on them to make scratching for a brood of chicks. "Perhaps some day the people who ire holding these claims and the local capu tallsts who could develop properties In those cares where it can be done upon an. equitable basis, will awaken to the fact that they have been making a se rious mistake. So far as the capitalists are. concerned, they may not make their discovery until they are In the same re lation to the Oregon mines that St. Louis was for a 'time, at least, to the great zino fields almost at Its very door, when Bos ton, by quick perception and greater en terprise, got the first and the best and the most St. Louis knows better now; As for the dog-in-the-manger claimants," if their own greed does not of Itself show them that they are defeating their own ends and injuring Oregon, some legalized means should be found to deprive th"m of this wholly uneconomic and unnatural privilege of holding opportunities which they will neither develop nor permit oth ers to deyelop." DEAFNESS CURED. Successful Treatment of Jojin D. Rockefeller's Daughter. NEW YORK. Dec 22. A dispatch to the World from Vienna says: The first details of the treatment of Miss Alta Rockefeller, daughter of John D. Rockefeller, for deafness, by Dr. Isa dor Muller. have been made public. In a lecture before the Solcety of Physicians. Mr. Muller said: "When Miss Rockefeller's case was brought to my Attention, It was so grave that all known methods had been tried unavaillngly. I was forced to Invent now methods, which have fortunately succeeded. These were two In number. "The first was to Introduce a small gold plate Into the ear, fashioned into the required 6hape. This was placed between the ear-drum and the chain of small bones which transmit the vibrations to the internal ear. This Improved the pa tient's hearing so much that she could hear the ticking of a watch, something she had not heard for years. The sec ond new method. was to replace the de stroyed portion of the ear-drum by myr lngoplastic means. Here again I Inserted small gold plates. This was tried only after every known method had been used In vain. "Two months ago the patient came to Vienna for the continuation of her treat ment, which I have now carried to an unexpected point of success.'

Bottled by the Brewers to Insure perfection- He TESTED THE-SAUCE WTI'AESS AT THE BOOZ HEARING -DID SOT FIXD IT BAD. More Cadets Were Called to tke Stand to Explain the Methods of Hazing. "WEST POINT, N. T., Dec 22. The court of Inquiry Investigating the alle gation that .the late Oscar. L. Sooz was so ill-treated while a cadet at the mili tary academy that his health was im paired, began work early today, intending to finish Its labors at noon. Major J. M. Bannister. Surgeon, United States Army, told of his testing the ef fects of partaking of four drops of Trop- leal Pepper Sauce.", such as is U3ed In the cadets' mess hall. He said he tried it last night by dropping four drops of the sauce on the palm of Tils hand and tak ing up with his tongue. He swallowed the- sauce, although it tasted hot, like the taste of a cayenne pepper pod. His throat, he said, was very susceptible tq any irritation, but lie felt no ill effects from the dose. Two young ladles, who were present when he made the test. In a spirit of fun did likewise, and they, too, found no difficulty in swallowing the same quantity. In reply to General Clous the witness said: "I positively swear that the taking of this sauce could not directly or Indirectly have caused the tuberculosis, or the death, or in any way be the cause of the death of Cadet Booz two years after his partaking of J-" Cadet John H. Poole, of Michigan, swore that he never hazed Booz. Hq had not seen Breth hazed, but had heard he was "exercised" considerably. "What are the relations of the -upper class men to tho fourth class men?" "With the exception of exercising, which has been abolished, it Js about the same as formerly. "We require them to do special work about our tents, cleaning guns, making up beds, aqd so forth." The witness said that ho had heaYd of four fights between upper and fourth class men since last encampment. """ "Who won?" asked General Clous. "Two were won -by upper class men, one by a fourth class man and the other was a draw. Cadet Guy Carleton, of Michigan, testi fied that Booz was hazedr but that there was nothing brutal or severe In it. Oth ers had similar experiences. In reply to several questions regarding Cadet Breth, the witness said: "I knew him, but did not hear of his being hazed or being put In a straight Jacket. If he had been placed In a straight-Jacket I certainly would have heard of Jt I had a special duty man from the fourth class. He swept out' the tent, carried water and cleaned my gun and bayonet." Cadet Emery J. Pike, of Iowa, had heard of men being required to eat soup, but never knew of a positive case. "You knew Cadet Breth? " asked Gen eral Clous. "Yes, sir, I remembered him because of his woodenness." "Do you mean by that that he was wooden-headed?" "Yes, sir." " "In treating fourth class men by your methods o hazing, was. any "difference made between the sons of rich men and those of the poorer classes?" "Well, sir, there would be no distinc tion, except the rich man's son was con ceited " answered the witness, "Why do you haze fourth class -men?' asked General Brooke. - i "Fourth class men are new'and green and they are hazed to make 'them con form tor the rules, to obey their superiors and make men out of them." "If the son of a General or the son of -a. President of tHe United States came here, would he be hazed?" asked the General. "Yes, Blr, he would if he were conceited, and it is likely he would be ''hazed any how.' "You then evidently wish to make thepi that none is better than the other?" said General Brooke. "That's the Idea, sir." , In reply to .General Brooke, Cadet Cox, of Virginia, said that when a cadet In the fourth class was conceited. It was taken out of him by hazing. "How long does the conceit last?" asked the General. "About 20 minutes," replied the witness. "Ah, then it is 'exercised'?" said the General, Jokingly. "Yes, sir." , "Docs it ever return?" "Not while he Is a fourth class man, slr." General Brooke questioned the witness at length on the cadets' "code of honor,-' and the witness said; "Our code does not require a man to do anything ungentle manly. Sometimes a class has caused a man to resign for making false state ments or doing something in violation of this code." "Any deviation from this standard, then, would be closely Investigated -by the class, and there is no !ntermin.nrv between absolute truth and falsehood?" J Inquired General Brooke. "That is exactly the Idea, sir. I knew of a case about two years ago where a man dll an ungentlemanly act and he was requested to resign," said the wit ness. "Did he?" asked General Brooke "He did, sir." Cadet Leonard A. Pruntey, of Kansas, had himself taken pepper sauce, i The quantity was half a leaspoonful. Ho 'suf fered no Injury from It, the effect pass ing away In 10 minutes. Cadet William M. Colcy said ho could not say that he had not given sauce to lower class men. t "Have you seen It given, and, if so, was any force used?" "I saw it given several times In the mess hall, but no force was used. The men were told to .take It and they did. Eight drops was the most I ever saw given." "Have you known of any cadets being dragged from their tents?" asked Gen eral Clous. "Yes, sir, was dragged myself, when a fourth class man. I was lying on tho comforter on the floor. Ttvo or three'men ciught hold of It and pulled It with me on top out of the tent" "Have you ever known a hand to have been laid on. a man and his body dragged out of the grounds?" "No, sir, the bedding was always un derneath." . The court adjourned until December 2Si at 2 o'clock. Pnsh Will Be Electrocuted. SING SING, Dec 22.

There Is a curious disposition among the people to make sport of Governor Thomas' crusade against the Indians, who are said to be killing game outside their reservations and within the boundaries of this state. That is has a comic side Is probably not to be denied- But It may also have a very serious side. The, border country has not had any Indian experiences of late, and the American people show1 an astonishing facility in forgetting unpleas ant things. Those who know anything about the Indian know that the kind of movement now begun may very easily Incite him to acts which will have a very serious significance to outlying, settlers, and pos sibly small villages. The Indians know as well as Governor Thomas does that the Federal power is not behind this move ment They rarely forego a chance for immediate reenge because of the pos sibility of a remote reprisal. That the state can preyail in the end no body doubts, perhaps, but aside, from the harvest of trouble and loss of life we may have to reap, citizens are also look ing to the harvest of debt that must fol low, though we are now at our wits' end to devise means for paying what we al ready owe. Some of them are inclined to suspect the Governor of a -kind of ''after us, tho deluge" policy. Roosevelt' a Mason. NEW YORE, Dec 22.

These people describe In their own language the particulars of their afflictions,- and of their vain efforts to ob tain relief from other sources. They tell of the complete, perfect and -permanent cures accomplished under -the Copeland treatment. They are common, honest conscientious and trustworthy people, who, if you call upon or write them, will cheerfully verify the truth of. their pub lished, statements. They are not Govern ors, Senators, Congressmen, politicians, public men or actresses, who court noto riety and? publicity, and who are always glad of an opportunity to be brought prominently before the people, but who, as a general thing, are not very sick, and who never claim to have been cured of a serious Illness by the patent medicine they appear to Indorse and recommend. .Added to this uncomfortable, stopped-ap feeling was a continual discharge from the nose, and dripping Into the throat.
