ADMIRAL WALKER'S REPORT.
The Senate Listens to Correspond
ence in the Hawaiian Matter.
Washington, Deo. U.-In answer
to a resolution, Secretary Herbort
to-day sont to tho Senate the corres
pondence between the Navy Depart
ment and Admiral Walker relative
to bis mission to Hawaii last sum
Admiral Walker began his report
to the Department by a letter from
Honolulu, dated April 25th, stating
that he had assumed command of
the station and telling of tho conse
quent formalities. On the 28th of
the same month he wroto a long let
ter touching tho political situation
and giving his impressions. Premis
ing his remarks with the statement
that the Provisional Oovernment
I appeared to be firmly established
and that life and property were
I secure, the Admiral says that thoro
I are two causes which give uneasi
ness the uncertainty ot the natives
! as to the ultimate restoration of the
i Queen, and the possible disaffection
, of the Japanese. Tho registration
' bad closed with but 1MK) registra
tions in Honolulu. Comparatively
few natives had registered, their
policy being ono of abstention from
i political affairs under the existing

I leaders that they would bo punished
if tho Queen was restored, and they
woro afraid to tako tho risk. Thev

woulu be restored by the United
States, aud foreign influence in
creased this belief aud approhension.
Could they fool assured that the
monarchy would not bo restored, it
is boliovod they would readily parti
cipate in the formation of a uow
government. The sentiment of loyal
ty to t he monarchy and Queen is,
says tho Admiral, to a considerable
oitent a sentiment of self-interest,
of self-preservation in tho event of
Touching the Japaueso, tho Ad
miral says they number over 20,000
on tho islands, aud are inclined to
be turbulent. They stand togother
as a solid body, their loaders have
political ambition aud propose to
claim tho right to vote. Many per
sons thiuk them a possible source of
futuro danger. Thoy are brave, with
military instinct, and would fight if
aroused or excited. Tho Portuguese
also have political aspirations, but
thoy are a law-abiding, desirable
class of immigrants. Tho Chinese
do not outer into politics to any ox
tent. As a rule the English aro
Royalists, but many fvor tho Pro
visional Qoverumont and annexation.
In bis next letter, of date April
28th, the Admiral tells of the notice
served by tho British Minister. Wodo-
house, upon President Dole of the
intention of his Government to uxo
Keeker island as a cable station, and
his request that nothing bo said
about ft to the French or to any one.
Tho President replied that ho felt
bouud to inform the United States

Tho last letter from Admiral
Walker is unquestionably the most
interesting of the entire correspon
dence. It is dated at Honolulu,
August 17th, lust prior to his depar

from tho Secretary, set out iu the
telegrams witn which the correspon
dence begins. It reads iu part as
In my opinion, the republic has
ample streugth to maintain itself
aud preserve peace, aud would sup
press riot and counter revolution
with a firm hand, but as long as for
eign vessels lie iu the harbor of
Honolulu ready at a moment's notice
iu tho event of disturbances to laud
forces to secure the safety of lifo aud
property, it was open to the enemies
of the Government to ray that tran

the Philadelphia was to leave on the

among tho Kuglish residents to re

This change of plan aud the cir

appreciate which it is necessary to

Ho had been at Uouolulu nearly
thirty years, aud his constant strug

essential part of this policy, to

year of his diplomatiu service, upon
the ovo of his retirement, was au evi

tho royalist loader, nnd he had cer
