Admiral Miller had very little
to say in San Francisco regarding
bis mission to Hawaii, and was on
his guard againat sayiugtoo much
in what little be did have to offer.
When asked if the Oregon would
bo added to tbo fleet at Honolulu,
be replied that he could not speak
in regard to that question, but
fancied that one might draw con
clusions from the general nows
papor talk on the topic.
Concerning the probable length
of his service at the islands he
was also reticent. He said frankly
enough and very pleasantly, that
ho could not talk of 'Hawaiian
matters. Ho knew that the Phi
ladelphia was there' and the Ben
nington had been ordered to re-'
lie ve the Marion.
It is quite well understood that
Admiral Miller comes to the Paci
fic station under important in
structions from the Government
in relation to annexation and the
matter of indemnity which Japan
soeks from the islaud republic.
Admiral Miller was the naval
officer representing tbo United
States at the Queen's Jubileo de
monstration. He wont there on

sufficiently from the effects of the

It is understood that this is one
of tho essential conditions upon
which Japan will consent to
arbitration, and that if this re

United States Japan will break

The State Department has not
yet received any official eommuni
cation from the Japanese Govern
ment on this matter and tho Ad
ministration bus not indicted
whether or not it will comply with
tho Japanese denmnd when ninrln.
An official of tbo Japanese Le
gation said in an interview: "I
am not officially informed con

United States to take recognition
of it and assume an ultimate re

States nor the Hawaiians can
justly plead disinterestedness.
Frequently in tho Hawaiian-Japanese
correspondence of lutB tho
pending annexation has figured
as a factor in tbo situation. This
should operate in tho arbitration

In the last Hawaiian mail to

bringing the record of events on
the islands up to tho 21st of lost
month, Minister Bewail tells in
detail of the diplomatic corres

Hawaiian Government growing
