flagstaff ou thepalacs roof.
Salutes woru fired from tho
heavy guns of tho forts mid the

covered tho roof of the buildings
around the palace and plaza.

litis argued that Cougrrss ought

"Washington, Decomber 2!), A
sharp contest will occur in the

government of Hawaii, as tbo urn-
jority and minority of tho Com

do tho majority agree with the re
