11:10 n. m. Tho aetital limo was woven days four
hours and feu minutes. This is two hours .nnd
eidht minutes faster than her last westward p,is
Hiifjo, which, until this one, was tbo quickest on
record. Duriui; tier recent trip, tho Attitkit was
obliged to pnrsuo tho extremo wmtbcrly course, iu
order In avoid theicu near the Daiiiuof Newfound

would otherwise have been. The total distance
traveled sinco itocho'H Point was p.ucd was ,b'
niilcs. '1'ho number of miles iiibiIo each day wero
as follows: Ou tho loth, 128 jiules; on tbo lbtb, 10.S;

docs tho greater pait of tho business. Ho keeps

After tho llill bad been road, and was being con

tho committee rises it recommend that tlio first
section bo Indefinitely imstponcd, und said in hiiii
porl of this motion: "'1 his Is not a matter that will
plcaso tho Hawaiian people. Il really has no busi

Minister of Foreign Affairs gavo notice it fow days

now another Minister brings it iu. Who is tbo
cause of this? Tho person who is agent for n high

of such a nallvo Hawaiian, tho samo color ns
myself, whoso duty is to watch over nnd protect
tho interests of llio country? And who savs, 'Wo

and tho Minister of Foreign Affairs, who has just
gouo out, 11 man whoso mouth is full of alalia tor
Huvvaiiaus, but whoso actions aru not. Wo mast
com.ider what a man does, nnd not what bo says.
This measure, of which rnmor.v havo been heard,
has now assumed n dcliuilu sbuiic. 1 hopo thai it
will be indefinitely iKjstpoucd. I think that taking
crown lauds away from tho crown and giving them
to another person is a step toward destroying tho
iudciiciidcuco of tho country."
A discussion arising nt this point iu regard lo
tho orderlimitiug debute lo Iho minutes, tho Com
mittee roso und reported progress, when tho order
was suspended. A motion lo adjourn to Wednes
day boing voted dowu, thu House again resolved
itself into Comniitlco of tho Whole.
Mr. 1'ilipo resumes: "I cannot understand tho
Ministry ut nil. 'Ihu Minister nf Foreign Affairs
has said a great deal about upholding the dignity
of tho throne. Tho same Minister first gavo notice
of this Act. I consider n bill of this kind liko all
1111 attempt In undermine tlio King on his throne.
Tho Minister knocks nl Iho door of tho Mr tubers
of this Houso nud asks them to join him nt a lunch
al his home. I urn informed that hu said to those
present Hint a conciliatory policy was best, that
it is better to givuthis small tract of crown laud to
prevent possible trouble. Where will this trouble
como from? Do not our Courts give just decisions?
Tlio Ministers aru frightened. 1 f they cannot pro
tect tho ditniitv of thu thruue. Ihev had best leavo
their beats. It makes mo ashamed to seo 11 Min
istry who uro afraid. Whoro is tho danger? Is it
from Great llrituiu, from Germany or tlio United
States ? No ! It is from 0110 man -a merchant.
I don't think lean bo blamed for saying what I
feci. Perhaps 0110, or two, or Ihrco or more of tho
Ministry aro in tho clutches of this man. I'crhaps
ho holds their papers. If this bill pass, it will ro
liova them. The Atlornuy-Ucneral must havo
drafted this bill, therefore ho is tho mother of it.
It has been hinted thut tlio Attorney-General, bo
foro his appointment, gao an opinion on this mat
ter. I am afraid of onu like him. I fear that ho
will not do his duty. I said this Ministry was
weak. I still bay so; I btill think it. They uro tho
protectors of Iho King, and should defend him to
tho last. Now tho order is reversed. It is for tho
Members to defend tho throne. If they fear tho
consequences, they can stand behind us. Wu may
havo all bcou unwise, but thu Ministry has been
moru so than tbo rest of ns. Lust night, certain
Members were driven iu n Hock to n room with tho
Minister of Forcigu Affairs. When ho gcLs them
thero, ho begins feeling them and tickling them,
and brings them around to his views. Is this the
wuy for n Btroug Ministry to act ? Why not bring
tho measures first before tho House, and not feet
around outside? Tho Ministers took oath that
they would supiurt tho constitution of tho King
dom. Aro they nut violating that oath now ? I
can say unhesitatingly that tho biluglug iu nud

A very imimrtaul letter, nddrcmsl by Secretary
illaiuo lo General Conily has been publishes! In tho
Chicago Timet. Wo regret that wo havo nut space
enough lo give the letter iu full, this wck, but we
givo 11 fow important points. Tbo loiter is calm
and friendly iu tone, and well rciaiyH careful stndr,
it is one of thu most iinimrtunt state documents
thai has been published with reference loour Isl
ands. A material connection ljctwccu the Hawaiian
Islands nud tho Pacific coast of thu United Stales
was natural uud inevitable, llut lately admitted
tu the family of separate States, Hawaii was nec
essarily drawn iulo closer kinship with California,
then just entering upon a ralli of prosperity und
greatness, wIiom) rapidity of development had nev
er been equalled. Ilcuco tbo movcmoiils towards
intimate commercial relations between tbo two
countries, which after tbo progressive negotiations
of leW,, 1K17 aud lb.W, culminated in the existing
reciprocity treaty of iliinuary 3), 1S7, which gave
to tbo United States iu Hawaii, nud to Hawaii iu
tho United States, trading righU and privileges on
terms denied lo other countries.
Tbo reciprocity Treaty of 1875 has nuido Hawaii
tho hu;; ;r-mising Held of thu Pacific Slope, and
Sivcs to tlio manufacturers therein tlio same free
0111 as in California and Oregon. That treaty
g-ivo Hawaii its first great impetus iutradoundde
vc!ocd that activity of production which has at
tracted tho eager attention of tho European pow
ers anxious to sharo in prosiwrity and advantages
which tho United Slates have created iutnid-oceuu.
In n word, Hawaii ib, by the wise and beniticent
provisions of tho treaty, brought within tho circle
of tho domestic trade or thu United States, and our
interest in its friendly neutrality Is the same that
wo feel iu tho guaranteed iudeiiendcuce uf the
Isthmus of Paiuimu. Ou thu other hand, the
interests of Hawaii must inevitably turn toward
tbo United States in tho fuluro as iu tho present,
as tbo natural and solo ally lu couscrviug tho do
minion of both in tho Pacific trade. This Govern-
incut has ou previous occasions boeu brought face
lo face with tho question of a protectorate over
tbo Hawaiian group. 11 has, ns of ten as it arose,
been bet aside iu the interest of such commercial
union and such reciprocity benefits as would give
Hawaii thu highest advantages, und at tho bame
timo strengthen its iudeiicudcut existence as a sov
ereign State. Iu this 1 iiavo summed np the wholo
disposition of tho Uuited States toward Hawaii in
its proper condition.
Hawaii, although much farther from tbo Cali
fornia 00.1st than is Cuba from the Florida pcuiu
bula, holds, iu tho western sea, much the same po
sition ns Cuba in tho Atlantic. It is tho key to the
luaritimo dominion of tbo Pacific States, as Cnba
is tho key to tho Gulf trade. The material posses
sion of Hawaii is not desired by the Uu'ted States
tiny moro than was that of Cuba, but under no
circumstances ciu tbo United States permit any
change hi tho territorial control of either which
would cut them adrift from tbo American system
whereto they -both iudtspcusibly belong. In Ibis
aspect uf Ihu question it is readily seen with what
concern thu Government must view any tendency
toward introducing Into Hawaii foreign elements
destructivo of its necessarily Atuericau character
istics. Tho btcady diminution of the native pop
ulation of tho Islands, amounting to sumo ten per
cent, between 187- and 1S7S, aud still continuing,
is doubtless the causa uf great harm tu tho Gov
ernment of tho Kingdom, und it is uo wonder that
n bolutioii should bo eougbt wilh eagerness in auy
seemingly practicable quarter. Tho problem, how
ever, is not lo bu met by a substitution of Mongo
lian supremacy for native coutrol, a seems at
first sight possible through Iho rapid increase of
Chinese emigration to thu islands. Neither ii the
wholesale introduction of tho coolie element, pro
fessedly Anglo-Indian, likely to afford any satis
factory outcome to tho difficulty. Tlio Hawaiian
islands cannot bo joined to tho Asiatic system. If
they drift from their independent station it tunst b.
towards assimilation nud identification with the
American system, to which tbey belong by the op
eration of political necessity. The United States
was ono of tho first among tho great nations of tha
world to tako active Iutercst in upbuilding lluwai
Ian independence aud tbo creatiouof political life
for its puoplo. It has consistently endeavored, aud
with success, to enlarge tho material prosperity of
Hawaii. Ou such nu iudciicndcul basis it pro
poses to bo equally unremitting in its efforts here
after to maintain uud develop the advantages
which accrued lo Hawaii, and draw closer the lies
uhich imnomtivclv unite her tu tho crtat bodv of
tho American commonwealth. Iu this Hue of no
tion thu United States does its simple duty both tu
Hawaii and itself, aud it cannot permit such ob
vious neglect of national Interest a would be in
volved by sileul iicqiilesocucu in auy movement
looking to n lehbcniug of those amenities, KUd Ibe
substitution of nliuti uud hostile iuterestt.
