Washington, D. C, July 12.
Recognizing the gravity of Japan's
attitude oti the H'nVaiinn anuexa-1
tion question the iidininihtration
has decided to send the big battle
ship Oregon to Honolulu to re
lieve tho cruiser Philadelphia and
the old corvette Marion, both of
which need renovation. Orders
were issued ut tho Navjr Depart
ment today for tho Marion to re
turn homo at once, and instruc
tions will go to Honolulu by
Bteamer, leaving San Francisco on
July 17. The Philadelphia is in
a-vory unserviceable condition in
consequence of long anchoring in
somitropical waters, and thereforo '
it is necessary to got hor back to
the United Stutos. The Philadel
phia will remain at Honolulu,
howovcr, until tho Oregon arrives
and perhaps longer.
It had been intended for some
time td'send the cruisor Baltimore
to Hawaii, but thu repairs requir
ed Avill take longer than first esti
mated, and tho probabilities are
that she will not be ready for sea
Borvico until October. But this
uucxpocted postponement of her
assignment to the islands has
served a good purpose in allowing
the .Navy Department to send tho
Oregon, ono of the most formida
ble ships in the service; without
giving Japan an opportunity for
construing the act into a display
of unfriendliness on our part. II
is not customary to send battle
ships to foreign ports, and the
Oregon has never made no long n
voyage as that from San Francis
co to Honolulu. Her longest trip
from San Franoisco was down the
coast to Acapulco, Mexico, 1800
miles, and the voyaoo deraonotvat.
ed the excellence of her sea-going
While Japan cannot consistent
ly object to tho disposition of our
naval vessels, it has been not an
uncommon occurrence in diploma
cy for one nation to construe tho
presenco of a warship or an un
usual display of naval strength by
another nation at a port iu which
both have vital interests as an act
to bo viewed with concern, nnd in
formation to thut effect has been
frequently convoyed to the Gov
ernment of tho offondiug country.
If Japan should seud a like inti
mation to tho Government it
would be met by the explanation
that the Oregou is tho only vessel
available. The Oregon is so far
superior to the Japanese cruiser
Naniwa at Honolulu that com
parison is out of tbe question.
Ihe administration is taking
Japan seriously in her stand con
cerning Hawaiian annexation.
Minister Hoshi's frank statement
to Sherman that his Government
protested against the annexation
of Hawaii by the United States
because "the maintenance of tho
status quo of Hawaii is essential
to tho good understanding of
powers which have interests in
tho Paoifio" has boon viewed with
more concern by tho President
aud his Cabinet than othor points
of objections, as indicating the
rumored purpose of Japan to se
cure some sort of control of thu
Japan insists that sho dons not

to send the largest available vessel

tho Japanese claims against Ha
waii aud tho ratification uf the

will mow tho assignment of the

that if othor vcbsoIs aro sent to
