FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1899.
One thing is certain. V. O.
Smith will find strong opposition to
his personal political opinions among
the members of the Chamber of
Porto Rico is in a worse box than
Hawaii in relation to the clash of
old laws with the new, but, before
Congress, it has the advantage of
not asking for exceptions to usual
A Napoleon of finance who can
distribute the money in the treas
ury is now what is most needed.
The only way for this money to

What are the instructions of the
Chamber of Commerce to W. O.
Smith and why did he withhold

We are now assured by the Of'
ficial Organ Jr. that the "Uuof
licial delegate" will make a long
argument on the land question
Thus the Auditor General will have
to pay for more than a four line
item on the Pacific cable.
It would appear from Genera'
Corbin's report pn Hawaiian lands
that the War Department does not
intend to play second fiddle to the Ha
waiian officials. Is this why the Ex
ecutive selected a representative
with "war records" to argue for
the continuance of their indepen

Post under the heading "In Hotel

and important people with whom
he is classed, his war records, etc.
which it is to be supposed the re
porter was already acquainted
with are givn in a series of
interviews with other great
men who cool their heels in Wash
ington hotel lobbies. At the head of
the list is a Maryland "colonel"
who talks politics. Whether lie has
war records or is a cousin to the
"Kentucky colonel" is not stated
Next follows a lawyer of the west
who also talks politics. Then fol
lows "our delegate," who, after ex
plaining his profound mission and
war records, gives first prominence
to the fact that he urged
"in a most forcible manner"
at - x .! f ri ? -
me construction oi a racmc
cable, when speaking before the In
ternational Commercial Congress.
It is also to be supposed that the re
porter had read the four line account
of "our delegate's" speech and
thereby became convinced of the
forcible manner of the urging. Fin
ally, last on the list of importance,
it is stated that Hartwell is convinc
ed of the necessity of territorial rule
for Hawaii. Tardy though it may
be, and second in importance to the
Pacific cable interests, we are glad
to hear this from the delegate. It
would appear, however, that his
enthusiasm cooled on Hawaiian af-
f drs and reference to them was sec
on J thought,
Next following the "Unofficial de
legate" we find the additional dis
tinguished company, with which
tie Post associates him, to be a
sheep rancher of Virginia and a
"well known" civil engineer wait
ing for the navy department to try
The Hawaiian Executive's "spe
cial agent" and "Unofficial
delegate" is indeed receiving
distinguished consideration. From
local government sources we learn
that he has- met the Attorney Gen
eral, who has expressed willingnes
to hear his arguments on the land
question Any lawyer in Honolulu
would receive the same recognition.
We fail however to note in the
'unofficial delegate's" report to the
Haunil.tn Executive that he said
anything about the Pacific cable.
Is this cable b sinrss in his instruc-
t ons or is it a "side line" similar, to
those carried by nearly all the
commercial travelers with whom
the Post deals principally in its
cohjmn "In the Hotel Lobbies."
BRAVERY OP WINSIIIP'S MEN.
Washington, Orttber 1 5. -
Department has made public :
a report from
Commander Taussig, of the Bennington,
with appended reports of subordinate offic
ers, concerning an engagement at Malabon
on March 4. I he purpose of the Depart
ment In making public the report appears
to be solely to make known the gallant
conduct of the sailors engaged, and pirtl
culjrly that of Assistant Engineer Win
ship. A and iu? wis made at ma abon uv a
force from the Bennington, the purpose be
ing to t.ike photographic views ot the
damage wrought by the big shells from
the Monadnock fired at the priest's house
In the preceding week. Although told by
some ininamen tnat mere were no arinej
Insurgents about, Commander Taussig
took ample precautions to prevent n sur
prise. One of the steps taken was to post
the tender Ualanga so as to enfilade the
north wall. This boat was In charge of
Assistant bnglneerWlnslilp,,and rendered
great service. The Insurgents appeared
behind the iiurenciinieius ana nreJ uron
the Benninzton's people and upon the Ba-
ianga, and after an hour of desultory
shooting, not being authorlzeJ to retain
the place and having taken the photo
graphs desired, CommanderTausslg with
drew his men, who were fired at as they
rowed away In their boats.
Wlnship Is specially commended for
gallantly by Commander Tatsslg. The
assistant engineer feed the 37-mllimetre
gjn on the Balanga elghtvseven times,
and although wounded early In th action
retained charge of the gun and the Balanga
not only throughout the action, but until
the shlri returned to her anchorage about
noon. The Bjlang.i was lying bmvs on
to the beach, hotly tng iged "with the ene
my In the trenches, although her men
fought without coertill the Bennington's
landing force was safelv beyond range
Upon his return to the Bennington, Wln
ship, though wounded In five places, sent
the doctor to look after Coxswain Terry,
who was sllghtiy wounded, I eforc asking
for medical attendance for himself.
CommanderTausslg commends for es
pecial consideration. William McKay,
chief master-at-arms, Coxswain Terry and
Private Klrkman although he says the
entire battalion behaved so gallantly that
were he to name the deserving ones he
would furnish a roster of the battalion.
Bnsicn E. H. Oimpell is mentioned as de
serving great credit for the skill displayed
In monivuvrlng the Bennington during the
engagement, lie being at the time in com
mand or the ship.

Tlai'tvTcll In Washington.
Under tho heading "In Hotel Lob
bies," tho Washington Post publishes
Glen. Alfred 3. Hartwell, who Is 11
guest of tho Sliorcliam, after a dis
tinguished career In the Union Army,
settled In Honolulu, in 18CS, and ever
slnco has been ono of tho foremost men
of llawnll In Inllucnco nnd social pros
tlgo. On arriving thero ho went upon
the Supremo Bench, holding tho olllce
of Justlco until King Knlakima ap
pointed him attorney general.
Gen. Hartwell comes to Washington
as tho special represcntntlvo of tho
government of llawnll. President Dolo
selected him as peculiarly well fitted to
glvo Information and counsel upon the
questions that will linvo to bo con
sidered when Congress proceeds to
lcglslato In behalf of our Island pos
sessions. General Hnitwoll was also
appointed n dolegato to tho Interna
tional Commercial Congress In Phila
delphia, and yesterday nddressed tho
congress 'upon "Pacific Ocean Teleg
raphy," urging In tho most forclblo
manner tho need of tho Immediate con
struction of cablo lines to Hawaii, Ja
pan, and tho Philippines.
In regard to Hawaii ho Is convinced
that the territorial form of govern
ment Is best for tho Islands, seeing that
they aro already dominated by Intelli
gent and progressive Americans, nnd
can in no senso be looked upon in the
light of a colonial dependency.
