Thoro is little to Je Bniil on tho
news regarding the trnaty of an
nexation. Tho facts explain them
selves as fully set forth in this
paper. Fresh predictions on tho
turn of nlTuirs would be idle now,
as there must necessarily ensue a
period of waiting for developments.
If Japan keep forcing the hand
of tho United States, there is no
knowing what a day may precipi
tate. Senator Morgan's bill is a
significant feature of this phaBO of
tho mattor. If tbo Washington
administration is sincere in tho
steps thus far taken, as there is no
reason to doubt, annexation may
bo hold to bo only for a reasonable
time deferred by circumstances.
Everything passed off grandly

Herald baB made a poll of tbo
Sonato on tho Hawaiian annexa

Sonators wbo can bo counted on

less than the requisite two-thirds.
Thero are eleven other Senators
undecided and twenty-ono wbo
are opposed to tho treaty.
Those in favor of annexation
are: Aldrich, Allen, Allison,
Baker, Burrows, Gannon, Cartor,

Thus the advocates of annexa

to secure at loast threo more votes

tho treaty. Some of tho Sonators
who are nou commital aro inclined
to favor annexation, bat want to
hear the arguments on both sides

he sees no reason why
Portugal should lodge a protest

The Chinese Minister is in
dined to think that the clause in
the treaty excluding the further
i migration of Chineso to tho isl
