Washington, March 10. No
plan Iihs yot been arranged be
twnon Piesiileiit McKinley and
Scoiotary Sherman and thoir
I friends in Congress for bringing
about Hawaiian annexation. Tho
commissioners from Hawaii, W.
O.Smith and Lorrin Thurston, are
iu Washington with n treaty of
annexation, but those most inter
ested in the subject, especially
mombors of tho Sonato Committeo
on Foreign Relations, beliove it
would be impossiblo to seburo tho
necessary two-thirds vote for
ratification of such a treaty, and
thoy are, therefore, in favor of
adopting a moro direct moans to
accomplish tho same result.
John W. Foster, who visited
Hawaii a few mouths ago in tho
interest of iho cablo, company
seeking a charter from tho"Dolo
Govoinmout, is deeply Tintorostod
in tbo annexation -question and
has diBQUB6ed it with several. Sen
ators. Tho mattor has been in
formally brought tothe jitcention
of President McKinloy also, but
ho has as yet not found timo to
consider tbo question as to tho
bost method to bo adopted to
bring about annexation.
It has been represented' to tho
Presidout by thoso who havo re
cently como from Hawaii that tho
condition of tho island is very un
satisfactory at present, politically
as woll as otherwise, and that tho
Japanese, who form such a largo
portion of tho population, aro on-
doavoring to get control. Al
though it is not thought likely
thoy will Buccecd, it has been rep
resented to tho President that tho
Dole Government in tho naturo of
things cannot last much longer,
and that uravo troublo -s immin
put. Believing that tho treaty could,
not bo ratified, at least hot until
aftor a prolonged contest, annexa
tionists in Congress aro satisfied
that tbo most feasible mothod to
accomplish tbo desired result is
through a joint resolution annex
jug Hawaii to tho United States
just as Texas was untiexed. Tbo
parliamentary prospect of such '
,a resolution has beon considered,
butit is probable, that it will not
bo introduced until aftor it has re
ceived tho sanction of President
McKinloy, who hopes to bo able
to take tho subjoct up for'cousid
oration at a very early day.
