NO GENERAL HAWAIIAN LEGISLATION.
It can be positively stated that there will be no
general legislation relative to Hawaii at this session
of Congress. The Peace Treaty will be ratified,
thus preventing any probability of a special session
of Congress being called.
This information comes from an official source
direct from Washington. That the laws relating to
shinnino- will be extended
seems highly probable, and the registry of foreign
ship under the Hawaiian flag will be stopped.
The fate of the tariff law is still in the balance.
Thus Hawaii will continue for another year un
der the administration of the Republic of Hawaii,
which will necessitate the general legislative elec
tion next September.
SHAFTER WAS OFFENDED

Was Not Sufficiently Thanked.
Now ork, Fob. 2. A special
to tho Herald from Washington
says: Whilo admitting that no
formal tonderof thanks wore given
to Gon. Shatter for accomplishing
tho oxchango of Naval Construc
tor Hobson and tho crow of tho
Morrimac, offioiaU of tho Navy
department declare that proper
credit has always boon givon to
him for his action.
These declarations aro in answer
to Geu.'Shafter's statement in his
article iu the curront numbor of a
monthly magazine, that '"the fact
that they were roloaBod by the
army has never boon acknowled
ged by officers of tho navy who
simply spoak of Mr. Hobaou's ro
turu to duty."
It is truo so as far as the
public reports of Rear Admiral
Sampson show that ho did not
rotor to Goneral Shatter or tho
array in effecting Hobson's roleaso
to the navy department. Friction

GEN. MILES SPEAKS AGAIN
Gives a Statement to be
Mass of Facts and AfDdavlts Complaints from
All Parts of the Country More
Radical Than Ever.
New York, January 31. Gener
al Nelson A. Milos gavo out u
statement tonight, nftor denying
several published interviews at
tributed to him. He prefaced his
etatomont by saying:
"I havo been most froely quot
ed without authority from me or
without any utternuco on my
part. It has boen a sourco of
great annoyance to me."
His etatomont is as follows:
"On tho 20th of last September I
issued an order to rcgimontal com
mnudors to report to mo concern
ing tho beef which had boou is
sued to their mon. At tho timo
thnt I went boforo tho War In
vesticatinc Commission 1 hnd
only received roports from four-
toon of tho commanders. iNow l
have thirty reports. Thoy all tell
the same story.
"Tho evidence proveB tho truth
of tho statomonts I have made,
Iu addition to tho roport of the
rcgimentnl commanders, I havo n
great mass of evideuco consisting
of communications, affidavits, etc.,
from ofiicore, soldiors and civili
aus. Every part of tho couutry
has contributed to thu mas of
correspondence which I have
received in roforonco to the
beef sorved to our soldiero and tho
nvidonco is all corroborated of
what I havo said. Tho uroat pub
licity which the press has given to
tho matter uu3 brought 'all tho
correspondence of which I speak
" 1 hnvo overwhelming evidence
that tho embalmed beof was treat
cd with chemicals in order to pro
servo it. I havo affidavits from
men who saw tho beef undergoing
the treatment or embalming pro
" iNow, as to tho cauued roast
beef, that was difToront from om
balmod hoof. Tho canned roast
boef wns tho beef after tho extract
had boon boiled out of it. You
havo seon tho ndvortisomeuts 'beef
oxtract; ono pound contains tho
substance of from four to fivo
pounds of prime beef.' Well, this
is the boef after tho extract has
beon taken from it. They put this
beef pulp up in cans and label it
'Canned ltoast Boef.' The soldiers
report that tho canned beof wns
nauseating. If swallowed it could
not bo kept on tho stomach."

disappointed in tho expectation of
gotling advices from Wnshiuctou,
in tho lib do Janeiro's mail, ro
garding tho disposal of tho Chi
ncso rcfusod admission to the isl

Tho only reason thnt can bo given
for tho delay is that other matters
doe mod more important to the
Nntion aro pressiug upon the Ex
