that the late New Zealand Premier's
death was accelerated by over-fatigue.
He had not slept, for two nights, before
emoarwng owing te receptions and eon
ferences with Premier Deakln of Aus
tralia and was too fatigued to sleep
when he embarked for New Zealand. His
last public utterance touched on
American interests in the South Fa
cine. It was made in a speech in which
he expressed regret that the British
Colonial policy had prevented the an
nexation of Samoa and Hawaii, and, in
cidentally, he recited an interesting ac
count of his visit to President McKinley
regarding a proposal for joint British
and American occupation of Hawaii. The
speech was made in response to a deleg
tion to himself and Premier Peak in from
the Presbyterian Church asking that
steps be taken to secure the annexation
of the new Hebrides, now a joint protec
torate of France and Britain. The
speech, the last the dead premier made,
was an assertion of Colonial rights. He

was to have loaded at Tongue Point
mills, but was compelled to leave up

for San Francisco, owing to the fact that
the local longshoremen will not load a
vessel carrying a non-union crew. A
very poor reason for sending a steamer
out of this port to load.

worth, the publisher, arrived yesterday
on the Kaiser Wilhelm Der Grosse. to
visit Forest Land in New Foundlnnd,

obtained from the colonial government

railroad accident at Salisbury in which
23 persons, mostly Americans, lost their
lives until informed by a reporter who
met him on the ship. He said
"We have very few accidents in Eng
land. The people that are wrong will
be punished, and the inquiry will be a
very, very thorough one."

"I -don't believe American companies
remaining in England, unless they put
up a surplus sufficient to meet their
claims, will be able to do business."
"Do you have a paper trust in Eng
land?" he was asked.
"We don't have any trust at all." said
he. "No trust. John Bull is so stupid
that he won't have any trusts. Say that.
Say those very words."
