Hawaiian of Pure Blood Are Becom
ing Very Few.
So the Hawaiian are to die out ac
a nation. The figure prove It and the
civilization of the white man' aewne
only to hasten the end. In 1853 there
were aome 70,000 pure-blood Hawaii
an, and at that time the number be
gan to dwindle until, neroi-ding to the
census flKure of 1&00, the number of
pure-Moo'J and mlxf.-d blood Hawaii
an bud dropped to Z".fj?,:. Luc Ian C.
Warner, an authority, aays In the Out
look, that the health if the natives If
far from satisfactory. The race seem
to be dying out There are few large
families, and many children die In In
fancy. Vitality has been lowered and
tuberculosis Is on the Increase. On the
other hand, the number of part Ha
waiian la Increasing;, and the mixed
bloods are a sturdy race. There are
Caucasian Hawaiian and Chinese Ha-,
wallans, and they rear large families
and are but little troubled by dlease.
The Increase of the mixed bloods Is
best shown by the school statistics. In
1902 there were 4903 full-blooded Ha
waiian children to a population of 29,
787, and 2869 part Hawaiian children
to a population of 7848. The propor
tion of children Is twice as great
among the part Hawaiian as among
those of pure blood. Except on the
grounds of sentiment there Is nothing
to deplore In the situation. Races die
because their work Is done, and are
supplanted by stronger races. It is the
survival of the fittest. Humanity can-

San Fwnclsco, Sept. t'nlted
States District Judge Dehaven has de
cided that on the hearing of a habeas
corpus matter In which the applicant
is of the Chinese race and claims to be
a native American, the applicant may
introduce whatever reference and ma
terial evidence he may have to offer
without reference to ' the testimony
prvlously lntroducd by him bfore the
Immigrant commissioner. The case
before the court was that of Quan Kok
Ulm. United States District Attorney
Woodworth objected to the Introduc
tion of certain evidence that had not
been presented to the Chinese bureau
at the time the application of Quan to
land was being considered The con
tention was made on the part of the
government that the United States
commissioner was limited to the evi
dence taken before the bureau. 1
ENORMOUS BUG FIGURES.

The extent of damage done by In

interests of the United States I but

cording to reliable statistics, do an
estimated damage to farm product of
$363,000,000 per annum. The chinch

VETERANS HOLD THE JOBS.
Old Soldiers of From E0 to 80 Years in
The civil service commission has fur
nished to the house committee on civil
service reform a statement ' showing
that the total number of ex-soldiers
and ex-sailors of the civil war . em
ployed In the executive departments at
Washington is 2175 and the widows of
veterans so employed 888. The Infor
mation was asked in view of complaints
that there are many superannuate1?
clerks on the pay rolls.
The largest number of veterans 641
employed in the Interior department.
while the treasury department carries
553 and the war department 347. Tiiere
are only 23 veterans on the navy de
partment pay roll and only ? In the
state department. .
The ages of the old soldiers and sail
ors vary from 60 to 82 years. There
are 217 who are 61 years old, while
those younger form the next larger
class, 19" In number. Nearly two-thirds,
or 1388, are from 58 to 65 years, of age.
Those over 70 years of age number
226. and of this number 11 are over SO.
The veteran with the longest service
Is ,77 years old. . He has served 62
years. Nearly two-thirds, or 1332,. of
the 2175 veterans, receive salaries
ranging from $1200 to $2500 per an
num.' Those receiving $840 or less
number 476. The veterans and their
widows constitute 10 per cent of the
number of persons employed In the de
partments and government printing of

What I. Life?
In the last analysis nobody knows,
but we do know that It Is under strict
law. Abuse that law even slightly, pain
results. Irregular living means . de
rangement of the organs, resulting In
constipation, headache or liver trouble.
