Prospeotsof tho Hawaiian terri
torial bill receiving any recognition
at this sebBion of Conglufis are
practically nil. Tho peaco treaty
is to como up for final voto in tho
Senate on February G, which will

sible consideration of Hawaii be
fore adjournment. That the terri
torial bill should bo discussed and
brought to a vote in tlii 3 short time
whon appropriation bille, array and
navy reorganization bills and other
matters of pressing importance ro
quiro action is hardly possible.
Hawaii may consider itself lucky
if tho shipping and tariff extension
measures get through tho Sonate,as
that is the body in u hich the sugar
trust interests usually mnko their
fight. The hanging up of the tariff
bill, passed by tho Houso, iu
tho Senate Committee of Fi
nance is by no means a favor
ablo omen. It will be reraom
bored that it was iu this committee
that tho sharp fight over the reci
procity treaty was made when tho
Dingley tariff was in courso .of
onactment, and more than one
Republican member of that com
mitteo showed himself hostile to
the free entry of Hawaiian pro
ducts to the United States.
Tho play of the beet sugar peo
ple sor-ms to bo to keep any bill
extending special laws to Hawaii
in the committee and the Finance
comraitteo stems to be their
stroughold. The bill relating to
shipping laws will doubtless be
referred to tho committeo of
which Senator Frye is chairman.
Fiye has always beeu friendly to
Hawaii and cun bo depended
upon to obtain prompt recogni
tion for the bill in tho Senate.
Having obtained the extension of
tho shipping laws only, tho terri
tory will have gained ouo import
ant point against the advocates of
a colonial Bchomo.
It seems a forcgono conclusion
that Hawaii will twiddlo alonu in
its present half and half govern
mental condition for another six
months. The principal lesson to
be learned from this situation is
that Hawaii is not tho biggest
toad in the American puddle, and
the best thing for local interests
to do is to combine forcesfor the
extension of as many American
laws as possible and as soon as
possible. Instead of dealing with
one Lation, Hawaii is now simply
one of mauy States and territories
and representatives of thoso com
munities can do as they please
with us without fear of that for
mer appeal to "other powers."

ATROCH'IES IN SAMOA
A ptivato lottor from Samoa re
ceived here yesterday says: "Tho
natives never went so far boforo
us they have done this time and
tho next outbreak it is almost cor
tain that whilos will be massacred.
This time they broko into sovornl
whito men's houses and stole
everything, nud what was not too
largo to carry they smashed up.
My own house was treated in this
manner and not a single thing

was taken away Tho houBe was lock

completely cleaned out.
