the Secretary, which, however, was quite vague. Mr. Hay is

letter showed that he was not thoroughly informed on the- sub

MOTLEY HAS SPOKEN
President McKinley has issued an executive order to the Ha
waiian Government officials restraining them from alienating
the public lands of Hawaii either by sale or lease, and cancel
ing all leases and sales of public land made by the local govern
ment since the annexation of Hawaii to the United States.
This news contained in the Washington dispatch published
exclusively by the BULLETIN was confirmed today. On the
authority of the Government officials it can be stated that the
proclamation is here, having arrived in the Australia mall.
The cabinet officers and the United States special agent re
fused to make public the text of the proclamation, but it will
necessarily be made public in a few days. The cabinet will
vtake such action as is necessary to carry out the orders of Pre
sident McKinley at its session tomorrow.
With the possible exception of those who have bought lands
of the Government since annexation, the general public en
dorses the action of the President.
Mr. Dole was seen by a BULLETIN representative today at
his Waikiki residence in regard to the President's Proclamation
concerning the sale of public lands.
In answer to the question whether the Proclamation had
been received from Washington, Mr. Dole said: "I have noth
ing to say I"
"Then the President's Proclamation has not been received,
f "1 have nothing to say," was the reiteration,
"Was the article in yesterday's BULLETIN, correct, Mr.
"I have heard of no such article anJ never read the BULLE
TIN," was the reply.
"We may state then that the President's message has been
received, Mr. Dole?"
"I have nothing to say."
Special Agent Sewall was seen later in the day.
"Will you oblige the BULLETIN with the text of the Presi
dent's Proclamation concerning public lands in Hawaii ?"
"1 cannot give you the text of the message."
' "Then the Proclamation has been received ?"
"Yes! The President's message arrived from Washington
yesterday on the Australia and was turned over to the local Gov
ernment." "Can you not furnish us with the substance of the message?"
"Well I The BULLETIN'S article yesterday was substantial
ly correct, I don't think there is anything more to be said; the
Proclamation will be published here immediately,"
I Minister Mott-Smith was seen in his office at the Executive
I building just after he had been iji conference with A. S.
Hartwell. The BULLETIN reporter asked if the government
had received a Proclamation in regard to the sale or other dis
position of public lands.
"Yes," answered Mr. Mott-Smith.
"Will you give us the substance of the Proclamation ?"
"1 do not feel as if 1 can do that.- The Proclamation ,ls "of
very recent receipt and will not come up for executive action
until the meeting of the Cabinet tomorrow forenoon. Presi
dent Dole is not feeling verywell and lias not come in from his
Waikiki place so that nothing can be done today. Not until
such action is taken will I feel at liberty to give out the con
tents of the proclamation.
