A VISIONARY SCHEIE
For Hawaiian Annexation anfl Per

THE 11EV UBLICAX TAJtIFF KILL.
Special by tho California Associated Pess.
Washington, March 31. Caesar
Celsom Ereno, late premier to king
Kalakaua has an interesting audim
iwrtant letter to-day from this city to
young Wilcox, the Hawaiian revolu
tionist, from which the following ex
tracts are taken: 'I am of tho opin
ion and warmly desire that you sliould
be a cabinet minister -with the firm
resolution to entirely deliver your
country and countrymen from the
grasp of greedy and unscrupulous
missionaries and their accomplices,
who conjointly preach in their
churches on Sunday, and do all kinds
of wordly tricks and traffic in their
shops through the week, and meddle
with politics all the year around."
"Missionary fraternity in Hawaii is
a calamity worse thau leprosy for the
Hawaiians." "Next May when the
Hawaii parliament meets, 3011 must
make a motion of a want of conn
deuce in the present missionary min
istry, followed by another for the
impeachment; of the ministers, chief
justice Juuu anulvev. Uartor, muns-
ter of Hawaii to Washington, for hav
ing betraved the confidence of the
Hawaiian king aud people in framing
and proposing a treaty in 18S9 to the
American government for the annexa
tion of the Hawaiian islands to the
United Slates. Minister Carter is a
public laughing-stock in Washington,
and his principal ami in the above
mentioned treat' of annexation was to
becomo himself and to make his
brother-in-law, Judd, both senators to
the United States senate m Washing
ton from the state of Hawaii.
I have good reasons to believe that
President Harrison and Secretary of
State Blaine, not only did not give
any encouragement to minister Car
ter in his annexation scheme, against
the will of the Hawaiian king and
people, but they and the Republican
party will prevent any other nation
from taking possession of Hawaii,
therefore Hawaiian independence and
neutrality nre assured."
"You Hawaiians need a strong
minded and adroit pilot to guide you
in sailing the ship of stato and that
person should be ProL Walter Hill,
editor of tho Bulletin, otherwise your
position in front of the missionary
ring, will be as before, and similar to
that of a simple and weak lamb, in

Wilcox writes encouragingly of lus
prospects. Instead of being hung, as
expected, he was liberated and elected
to the new parliament from one of the
districts of Honolulu. He hopes to be
a cabinet officer.
The Proposed Tariff Hill.
Special to Tiik Astoiuax J
Washington, March 31. At a
special meeting of tho ways and means
committee to-day Chairman Mclviulcy
presented the Republican tariff bill.
The minority will be allowed ten davs
to offer amendments to the bill. Ac
cording to McKinley, it will effect a
reduction of SJ.j,(XH),U00in the revenue.
The most notable changes recently
made in the bill are as follews: The
free list is enlarged by the addition of
items proposed in the old senate bill
aud by the addition of nickel ore; cer
tain works of art: paintings in ou and
water colors, aud sculpture by Ameri
can artists, abroad. Hides aro Liken
from the free list and put on the duti
able list at 15 per cent. The sugar
schednle is as it has been
published. A ver heavy increase in
the duty on wools is made. On the
whole it it. thought that importations
will be reduced by it to a very largo
extent Tho duty on woolen manu
facturers of high grades are greatly
increased. Lumber is reduced from
S2 per thousand feet to S1.50 per
thousand feet Hewed and square
limber is reduced from 20 per cent
to 10 per cent; some of the greatest in
creases are made in agricultural prod
ucts; tho increase is made along the
line ana it is designed to give farmers
a market for $73,000,000 worth of
products now imported.
It is understood that tho Democrats
will report the Mills bill modified as
a substitute. The modifications will
be chiefly by additions to the free list
of hides, wool, salt and perhaps coal,
uuu pig iron; an 01 wmcu new Eng
land manufacturers want free. The
Massachusetts delegation in the
house are particularly displeased with
the bill. Putting hides on the dutia
ble list, has greatly incensed them.

A Itemarkaljle Footrace in Wisconsin's
"Did you ever hear of the most re
markable race ever rnn in Wisconsin,
or anywhere el;e for that matter?'
asked an old timer the other day.
"No? Well, I will tell you about it,
for I saw it myself. In the summer
of 1841, with my uncle, 1 was making
a business trip to what is now the
Oneida reservation, in Wisconsin. A
St. Louis sportsmau, Henry Stanton,
was stopping there at the time, hav
iug been taken sick while on a hunt
ing trip, and the ludians were taking
caie of him. Stanton one day wit
ncssed a fast race by some of the
young bucks and an idea struck him.
It afterward struck others to their
sorrow. He had the bucks try their
speed, aud soon was sending letters
to his friends east and south. They
were confidential letters, but the an
swers promised him aU the money he
needed. He then sent out notices to
the sporting faculty that on a certain
day of that summer (1S4-1) he would
wager his pilo that a footrace of
ten miles could be made in ten min
utes. It seemed preposterous. But few
locomotives had ever made such lime.
"Stanton, however knew what he
was about. With a trusted bnck,
'Peep-o-Day,' he engaged the Indians
to put them ou the trail, on a iiali
milc straight stretch and return, the
Indians to relieve eachothcr tit theend
of each mile. He had them practice
in secret at night One day 'Peep-o-
Da' informed Stanton that a stranger
had offered him a bribe to let him see
a trial race. 'All right,' said Stanton,
take his money aud let him see it'
Rut Stanton had his men make poor
time and thus deceive the briber.
"The day of the race arrived and
with it about fifty of the sports of St
Louis, New York .and other cities.
The betting ran high with odds against
the feat being accomplished. Among
the party was a young man named
i)esuoyers from Detroit on his way to
Green "Ray with S60.000 in money and
accepted paper to pay debts and con
tract for furs. The race was duly
opened, the first young buck mak
iug his mile in sixty-four sec
onds, just four seconds short
The second young buck was
about to start when a chief 'One-Eye-Gone'
grasped him in his arms and
said he was his son and the 'run would
kill him.' Stanton hastily explained
that in their attire, with clouts liko
circus riders aud a belt strapped over
their stomachs, no harm could be done
them. But time was wasted in the
controversy and tho young buck
reached the stand with Stanton thirty
"The betters against Stanton and
his crowd now began lo laugh and jeer
and freely offered ten to one. Stanton
and his friends looked sad and de
jected enough. But they took till the
bets offered just the same, and right
hero voting Desnoyers lost his head
,i ,t eunnm r liia ninnov
and nut un S40.00U 01 his money
against the making of the race on time.
It is said some 20,000 changed hands
there aud then, but 1 don't know that
The sum is probably exaggerated, but
it was largb enough. The race went
on. The third buck made his mile in
fifty seconds, reducing the losses to
twenty seconds. This was kept about
tho same until the ninth buck stepped
to the frout, with a total gain of five
seconds. The last buck must make
up the fifteen seconds now lacking.
He was a tall, gaunt, wiry Indian, and
seemed lo be all legs. The betters
against Stanton began to waver, and
now calls for even bets and even odds
by Stanton and his friends failed to
bring response. The buck started on
time. And such strides! From six
to eight feet each, mid he went like a
whirlwind let loose. He must make
his mile in -15 seconds or all was lost.
It was an exciting moment; but the
buck got there with both feet and
had just two seconds to spare.
"There was nogreat excitement over
the result The gamblers present were
accustomed to winning and losing
large amounts. One St. Louis man,
however, did make a remark about 4a
put-up job', and even drew a derringer
and demanded his money returned.
Stanton raised his arm, and tho fifty
or more bucks who stood around to
witness the race dropped their long
blankets and stood calmly leaning on
uglylookiug guns. That settled it.
The race was fair. The young racing
bucks speut money freely for awhile,
as did also the chief who interfered
with the race. Young Desnoyers was
never seen again, either in Greeu Bay
or Detroit. It was said he went south
to redeem his lost thousands. It was
the most remarkable footrace ever
held in the world, and were the news
papers of that day what they are now
columns uion columns of its report
would have followed. As it is, this is,
I believe, the first time it ha3 been

Railroad Avenue In Demand.
Special to Tne Astoriax.1
Seattle, March 31. On Wednes
day evening the city council will act
on the Railroad franchises asked for
by the Union and Northern Pacific
companies. The situation is a pe
culiar one. Railroad avenue is but a
hundred and twenty feet wide, and
ninety-eight feet has already been
granted to the Seattle, Lake Shore &
Eastern and to tho Great North
ern. For the other twenty
two feet three roads are bidding:
the Fairhaven & Southern, tho Union
Pacific aud the Northern Pacific. The
Columbia & Pnget Sound also wants
the right of way on the avenue.
The probability is that the council
will propose to the two roads now
holding a franchise that they go into
a terminal company with the other
roads, and if they refuse to do this,
will revoke their franchise.
