thero will uo a lively battlo over
Hawaiian legislation was fore
shadowed today. Senator Vest's
resolution declaring that tbo
United States cannot annex terri
tory other than with a viow to
ultimato statehood was tantamount
to a declaration that party lines
cannot bo drawn in tho battlo in
support of the policy of President
MoKinlev. Thore are Republican
mombora of tho Sonato who will
opposo making Hawaii a territory.
as tboy aro opposed to an island
stato, and Vost's position indicates
that hia following will lino up
with tho Administration.
Another feature of tho compli
cations was tho introduction of a
bill in tho Houso by Payno of
Now York providing for tho ox
tension of tho customs and navi
gation laws of the United Statos
ovor tho Hawaiiau islands. It is
understood that this notion was
tokon in viow of the fact that tho
fight over tho gonoral Hawaiian
territorial bill may bo prolonged,
and with tho idea nf scouring at
onco to tho Amoriean morchaut
marino all tbo advantages of trade
botweon tbo Pacific Coast and tbo
islands. This is nt tho only
separate measuro which is proba
ble. Senator Perkins is determined
that very speedily legislation shall
