town people at the annual camp

A. 11., lat uiht ua on sotno form
er occasions. Naval .officers were
conspicuous for thsir total ab
bouco. Tlie iuvitutiou to Admiral
Miller and officers of tbo Phila
delphia was declined because of
uncertainty as to the time of re
turn of the ship to port from a
cruise for target practise. So,
although having returned two days
pioviniiH, she furnished no repre
sentative to tha festival.
Deficiencies of guests from the
quarters alluded to, howovor, wero
exoolloutly tilled by a largo must
or of o Hi co re of tbo Uuited States
military po-t. Thero was also a
goodly eprinkliugof ladies. About
a hundred people assembled.

Thero was a buglo call to the
feast, at which the company rang
ed itsolf into a larg.- hollow square
in the chairs provUrd. A match
was applied to a huge pile of tiro
wood, and flames leaping merrily
up shed a cheeriul glow over the
nssombly. Veterans helped tho
ladies and other guoBts to their
choico of dishes.
Post Commander L. L. La
Piorro, from tho stops of tho
house, delivered a brief address
of welcomo. In noat pbraso
ho reforred to the fact
that (his was the first timo Geo.W.
De . Loug Post held a campfiro
under tho old flog for which tho
comrades had fought moro than
thirty years ago. When tbe
greatly tempted appetites had gen
erally yielded to tbo vigorous ap
peasing efforts, tho Post Com
mander opened tho hill of toasts.
"Tho Prosidont of 'the United
Hon. Harold M Hawaii, Spo
cial Aijent and former Miuistor of
the Uuited States, in responding
said that in the conr of his poli
tical life ho had n ways folt mo
dest when osked to o mo forward
nt a festival of tho Uraud Army of
tho Ropublic. That was tbe ap
propriate ft oling for ones who bad
not )on privileged to offer thoir
lives for th preservation of their
country. Win n the President was
named it meaut a groat deal, for
ho was Conimunder-in-Obiof of
tho armed forces of tho Nation.
President MoKiuloy was not liko
Borne politicians who were tho
cur-'o of their country who in
publio office tried to mako their
"duties boar as lightly as possible
upon themsolves. Mombors of
Geo. W. Da Loug Post could all
the moro heartily cheer tho uamo
of tho President now because ho
was thoir own President. Presi
dent MoKiuloy took up tho cause
of Hawaiian annexation at the
threshold of his torm. Ho had
resumed its championship when
tho burdens of war wero every
momout threatening to boar on
his shoulders. Tbe people of Ha
waii owed an everlasting debt of
gratitudo to William MoKiuloy.

of thirty years ago. Those mon
who wont over tbo trendies at Han
Juan woro worthy successors of
tbe mon of '61. It wob uot natural
for a mnn born under tho Stars
and Stripos to be a coward. The
porformanco of duty in the recii"
war by tho Amoricau soldier had
won tho warm admiration of
European officers. It did not
matter whon commanding office h
fell, thoir places woro immediately
taken by men next in rank.
Horace Porter told in tho Cootury
Magazine of soldiers in the Vir
ginia trenches calmly sewing tiiis
of paper beariuu thoir names iut
tboir clothes, as a battlo wna about
oppning, so that theirbodioa could
bo identified for tho eako of their
families when thoy fell. Similar
heroism bad beeu displayed in tho

and in the hurry of coming away

an officer of tho Navy. Yot tho
toast waa all right. Tho Now

Hobson had covorod thoir names

was that their Navy was all rigbt,

Littlo tho vetorans thought thirty
years ago that they would bogath

Dictated by Chairman Cullom of
Explanation of Policy of Secret Sessions, Royalist Memorial?
Could Not Be Considered, Annexation
Hon. Sholby M. Cullom. Chair
man of tho Commission uuder tho
Annexation Resolution of Con
gress, asked for an interview with
a member of tbo Bulletin staff
today. Whon waited upon, the
distinguished gentloman stated
that he desired, through tho Bul
letin, to present n communicition
to tho publio of tho Hawaiian
Islands. Thoroupon ho dictated
tbo following expressions:
"Tbore Iibb been moro or less
criticism, of tho local Commis
sioners especially, becauso thoy
havo not given out what has beon
taking placo in tbo Commission.
Fault has boon found a littlo with
tho local Commissioners, and
somowhnt with all of us ou this
"Tho Commission haa not felt
that it would bo doing right to
publish our deliberations horo or
our conclusions, for tho reason, in
the first place, that thoy aro not to
bo consider, d as iiunl, as no shall
probably confer togetbor again
before any roport is made to
"Secondly. If our deliberations
and conclusions were final, it
would not bo quito respectful or
proper for ua to givo out our con
cluBions to tbo' public until they
have boon presented to the Presi
dent and Congress of tbo Uuited
"Therefore, it was determined
at tho beginning of our dehbera
lions that wo ouyht to regard our
action ns not publio until wo woro
certain of what wo woro going to
do and until wo bad roported to
tbo Prosidont and Congress.
"Tbo local Commissioners hero
havo folt more or less embarrassed
becauso of their rolation to the
publio hero and tho fact that tbey
wero not at liberty to givo out
what wo woro doing from time to
"Suppose that tho Commission
which has gono to Paris should
put forth in tho nowspapers
what thoy wero doing, with refer
nnco to tbo Bettlomentof quostions
involvod botwoon Spain and the.
Unitod States. Tuey would be
drummed .out of c.mp pretty
"Again. Thoro has beon a lit
tlo fooling, possibly, that wo woro
uot dipsoscd to listeu to, those
parties horo who havo boon hold
ing meetings and preparing memo
rials aSKlug lor a ruiuru ol luu
government hero baok into tho
bands of royalty.
"Wo havo in an informal way
received sovoral potitions indica
ting a dosiro on tho part of those
pooplo, ond tbo people supposed
to bo represented by them, to go
baok to tho old ways. Wo havo
oceived them informally, but on
ly informally, becauso wo deoraed
wo had no right to consider auy
such question as that.
"Wo aro horo as a Commission
undor tho Act of Congress provid
ing for tho anuoxatiou of tho Isl
ands to tho United Statos, and wo
aro only charged with
tho duty of conaidoritg what le
gislation is boat for all concerned
undor tho now order of thiugs.
That iB to say, our duty ia to de
termine for ourselves, and to re
port our conclusions to Congress,
what would bo best in tho way of
legislation for thoso islands, ns
well as for tho rest of tho country,
uuder tho now order of tbiuga.
"Wo aro uot charged tocousidei
whethor tho act of auuexntiou
should bo repealed in any sonso
whatever, and 1 desire to pay, as
wo are about to loave for tho
mainland, that auy effort on tho
part of any pernons, or any body
of persons, to chaugn tbo situa
tion from tho policy whicfr
lias beon ndopted annexing
the Islands ns part of tho United
States of America, w ill prove to ho
futilo and only work an injury ro
bo far as tbo iutliMice ofEuch
actiou may affect the masses of
tho common pco le.
"There iB nothing moro certain
than that tho annexation of tbesB
Islands which has tnkou plocu
already will remnin unchaogetl,
and that tbey will in the fuluro
