THE VERY LATEST.
Pnrrrngers nnl nffii'on of tlio
Austrtilia say there uns talk in
Sau Fruneisro just boforo tho
Btonmci left that Hnwuiiiiu nnuox
iitiou was to come lip in tho Sen
ate tlmt afternoon. Lettor& re
cohed by sovernl load firms con
firm this. Ono of thesu which
thoJJiLLETiN Las been permitted
to see roads as follows:
Sinco tho enclosure wbb written
we Imvo private dtepntcboB from
Washington to the effect that
Seuntor Morgan will cull up his
bill for tho annexation of Hawaii
iu the Senate this afternoon
(Tuesday, July 13) without wait
ing for tho Comintttoe on Foreign
Relations to make a roport on the
treaty, it being apparently his
object to press the bill to a voto
this session if possible in case the
treaty should fail to receivo tho
requisite- majority. Wo are still
doubtful if annexation will bo ac
complished before the regular
session, but in viw of tho present
situation at Washington tho un
expected may happeu and by next
mail wo may have some startling
nuub for ou.
Important dispatches wero re
ceived both by United States Min
ister Sowall and Admiral Beards-
lee. They wore evidently expected,
for both officials came into town
for tlioir mail and after glancing
over it at the consulate went off to
the flagship, whore they held a
conference lasting over two hours.
Tho Government received no
late dispatches, its Inst letters
from Minister Hatch being dated
July 7. Since then nothing had
been received. , ,"
,.Mr. Theo. F.Jbansiug is to be
congratulated upon his elevation
to tho Cabinet, even though he
has only accepted office tempora
rily iu an emergency. He is one
of those citizens who will not hesi
tate to sacrifice private interests
for tho good of tho public when
a call comes. Tho Constitution
allows n Minister ad interim to be
appointed when a member of tho
Cabinet absents himself from the
capital.Tho substitute can, however,
onl act for sixty days. Minister
Dnnim'a absence having extended
over tlmt time, and no detiuite
stutoment regarding his return
huvng beon rocoived by today's
mail, President Dolo wont for Mr.
Limning uud ofl'med him the
position. Mr. D.imnn's resigna
tion whs on file to be accepted in
such a contingency.
Events would indicate that the
Hawaiian public have to be kept
in the dark about matters affect
ing their interests until all the
rebt of the world has beon duly
informed thereon. It is only with
in tho past few days that the faot of
this Government's having offered
to submit its controversy with
Japan to arbitration has beon ad
mitted by any member of the
Government excepting in strictest
confidence. Now tho mail shows
that tho information was given to
tho public of Japan whonevor it
was received by tho Government
of that country, and tho public of
the United Stales ami tho world
woro apprised of the interesting
circumstance about ten days ago.
This sort of thing does not savor
of government by the peoplo.
Aunoxatiou was quite livo whon
the msil left the shoros of Amer
ica. It bids fair to bo a living fact
befoio uuothei mail arrives.
There is plenty of room in tho
harbor for tho Oregon according
to Captain Kiug and other
authorities. Tho basin that was
dredgod out for the Olympia still
remains and the wator is doepor
'alongside the Philadelphia than

Oregon does not draw over 27 feet

TIIK PANAMA CANAI.

Now York, July 12.-Tho
Journal's Washington correspon
dent wires that Franco nnd Great
Britain havo invited the United
States to join them in tho com-
plotion of tho Panama canal. It
is estimated that the canal can
completed for $100,000,000.
Nathan Appleton of Boston,
who has represented the interests
of the Panama Canal Company in
tho United States ever sinco tho
palmy days of Do Lossops' ex
travagances and the gross corrup
tion of the canal ring in Paris,
called upon President McKiuley
today iu company with Secretary
Long, who acted as his introducer,
if not his indorser. .
It is not understood that Applo
ton has done moro yet thau pres
ent a brief argument agoiust the
feasibility of the Nicaragua cannl,
and to show the benefit which
would come to tho United States
by having huge contracts for con
struction work thrown into the
hands of American contractors.

Constantinople, July 12. Fol

note of tho powers to Turkey:
"The great powers have adopted
tho project of strategical rectifica
tion as it has been worked out by
the military attaches and commu
nicated to tho Sublimo Porte. In
consequence, they have agreed to
assuro tho Ottoman Government
that they have arrived at a firm
determination to put an end to tho
obstruction, the only effect of
which is the prevention of the
conclusion of peace eminently in

"In time of peace prepare
for war" is an excellent adage,
and one which the United
States evidently believed in
when the new navy was built.
We in Hawaii have especial
reason to be thankful that in
times of peace such a magni
ficent specimen of marine ar
chitecture as the battleship
Oregon was made ready for
such emergencies as the pres
ent, and should take the lesson
to heart, not alone in national
affairs but in those of the
household. Suppose the Japa
nese fleet should blockade Ho
nolulu, for instance, we should
soon find ourselves run
ning short of lots of little
household necessaries other
This week we have one of
our windows filled with an as
sortment of articles necessary
in every kitchen. Buy them
today while you have a chance.
Among them may be enumer
ated chopping bowls, all sizes
and shapes, egg beaters, lemon
squeezers, chopping knives in
several varieties, nutmeg
graters, gem ice shavers, but
ter moulds, fruit pickers.rolling
pins and bread boards.
Another useful novelty is
the family butter case which
just holds one roll; the butter
can be cut off as needed with
out moving it from the case.
See that your kitchen is
supplied with all these requi
sites before the war breaks
