Washington, D. C, July 27.
"Tho Island of Palmyra baa beon
occupied by Groat Britain." Such
is the substance of a telegram re
ceived at the State Department to
day from Minister to Hawaii be
wail. Palmyra lies about 1000 miles
southwest of the Hawaiian group.
It was at one time the Boat of
operations of an American guano
company, and was annexed by it
by virtue of a general law of
Congress authorizing any Ameri
cans to annex islands where guano
deposits were discovered and
worked by them.
Undpr this law many islands
were annexed by Americans, who
removed the guano deposits and
then abandoned them. Among
them was Palmyra. After it was,
abandoned by the Americans it
was annexed by the Hawaiian
Government. It was considered
a part of the Hawaiian kingdom
and it is now olaimed by the Ha
The British now claim that it
was discovered by Captain Cook
and belongs to Great Britain. It
is not known what tho purpose of
the English ia, but it in surmised
that they want it for a coaling sta

point, in view of any trouble over
the annexation of Hawaii by the
The dispatch sent by Minister
Sowall was discussed at tho Cabi
det meeting tonight, and The Call
correspondent was told that this
was the real reason for calling the
Cabinet in special session tonight.
Discussing the matter editorial
ly The Call sayo:
"Tho occupation of Palmyra
Island by tho British is probably
intended to provide a half-way
Mtttion for a telegraph cable from
British Columbia to Australia.
Efforts have been made te obtain
concessions from Hawaii for that
purpose, but have failed, and Pal
myra offers a substitute which
can be made availablov It is tho
evidont intention of the British to
bind the parts of their scattered
empire as closely together as pos
sible, and a telegraph cable across
the Pacific will make a pretty
strong factor in the binding."
Washington, July 28. The
aotion of Great Britain in taking
possession of Palmyra island at
this time, following as it does the
submission of an annexation
treaty to the Senate by tho Presi
dents considered very significant
by the authorities here. Whether
it is intended to complicate mat
ters so as to stave off annexation
or whether Great Britain purposes
establishing a naval station upon
the island in question, her action
is regarded as one of the highest
importance and future develop
ments will be awaited with a keen
interest by officials here. It is
now tho intention of the Stato

him to urge the Dole authorities

New York, July 27. Tho
Herald prints a lengthy inter
view with Marquis Ito in Paris
whoroin ho says:
"I do not think it possiblo that
the opposition manifested in Japan
to the annexation of the Sandwich
Islands will take any more extend
ed form than the mere protest
made in order that the interests
of Japan on those islands may
not suffer injury. Japan is simp
ly seeking to protect herself and
her subjects, and this she has a
perfect right to do, but that she
will look aftor her interests in
other than a dignified diplomatic
way is absurd.
"The Emperor I know will not
support any bellicose policy. All
my frionds in the ministry or in
control of the different branches
of tho Government are of tho same
mind as the Emperor and the
Japanese public sentiment is one
of strong friendship for the Unit
ed States. Thus the Hawaiian
question oannot possibly bring
about a conflict, either armed or
diplomatic, with the Americans, in
spito of the jingoes."

The Call of August 1 ..osteins u
sketch of the ''Eventful Beginning
of a Histrionio Light." It refers
to Harry Corson Clarke, tho viva
oious comedian who was here with
the FrawTr-ye, to which visit there
is a reference in the sketch, taken
from the New York Herald. From
the same paper of 20 years ago
an extract is taken, showing the
"beginning" in question. It tells
of the arrest of Harry Clarke, a
boy of 15, for running a theater
without a license. With some
companions he had rigged up a
theater in a stable, to whose per
formances an admission fee of five
cents was charged, and 10 cents
for a box. A policeman found his
way into the place and, Clarke
being unable to produce the re
quired license, was summarily
pulled. Security was given for
him by a bonevolont cent Ionian.
and Clarke went home from court
with his mother.

Lato yesterday afternoon James

This morning tho conference of
tho Executive Counoilon thu mat

a refusal to grant the China n

Minister Cooper stated tho case,
in answer to questions this after

"Tho Executive decided this
morninc that a permanent re

China, for tho present at least.
But on finding that thn ship was
in a kind of predicament, the
MiniBtor of Foreign. Affairs was
authorized to extend the present
provisional certificate, in order to
enable the China to proceed on
her voyago, nud to return either
to San Francisco or to this port,
when the certificate will expire.
"We feel that it- is necessary to
observe the utmost good faith with
the United States Government,
with regard to the assurances that
no further registers should be
given to foreign ships.
"Tho proposition on tho part of
tho Government, to extend the

been accepted on the part of the

"The question arose aB to what'
tho stamp duties on the doou

event of a transfer of registry.
There was a bill of sale to Mao
farlane for five shillings, while
the mortgage baoked by him was
for S200.000. The conclusion ar
rived at by tho Minister of Fi

the following editorial under the
heading, "What's Japan got to say
about it, anyhow?"
"We publish a special dispatch
confirming one printed in the
Temps relative to the protest of
Japan aeainst the annexation of
Hawaii by the United States. We
do not thiuk the United States

London, July 27. The St.
JameB Gazette, commenting upon
Japan's protest in the Hawaiian
matters, says: "According to
European usago it amounts to a
threat to resist the transfer of the
archipelago by force, aud is
equivalent to warning the United
States that they must give up their
views as to Hawaii or proparo for
war. It does mean just bo much
in the mouth of Japan, though the
Americans do not eoom to think
so. But they havo such odd.ideas
of diplomatic language that thoy
aro not groat authorities."
The Pali Mall Gazette says:
"We have said from thejfirst thatit

Hawaii or uot; but Japan's pro
test should givo tho Araorionn
