Washington, April 17. After extend
ed meetings n unanimous agreement
was reported today by tho Ilousu and
Senate conferees on tho Hawaiian Gov
ernment bill. Tho Scnato conferees
yielded to tho IIouso measure, which
passed as a subslltuto for tho Scnato
bill ns a whole, although a number of
amendments wcro made. In tho main
tho form ot government ns finally de
termined upon Is that provided by tho
House. Tho chief amendments nrc
thuso providing u district court Instead
of tho Federal court organized under
general laws, anil tho striking out of
tho House provision postponing for
ono year tho tlmo for applying tho
coasting lnws to Hawaii. Tho prolU
bit ion of saloons In Hawaii us provid
ed by tho IIouso bill Is retained In a
modified form, In effect leaving the
matter to local option. Tho Houso
provisions as to tho land laws aro re
tained, Including tho amendment of
Hcprcsentatlvo Newlands of Nevada,
restricting tho nmount of laud to be
ncld by a corporation to 1,000 ncrcs.
Tho otlicr Newlands amendment, pro
viding for n committee- to Investigate
tho labor question In Hnwall, Is chang
ed so that Commissioner of Labor
Wright will conduct tho Inquiry. The
appointment of Circuit Juugcs, which
was tho subject of rather earnest dif
ferences, wns finally decided by leaving
llio appointments with tho f resident.
Tho bill establishes a complete form
of government for tho Islands, with a
Governor and other executive officers,
n Legislature of two branches and i
Judicial branch, consisting ot a Supreme
Court, Circuit Courts nud inferior
courts. Tho bill provides that Hawaii
shall bo represented in Congress by a
delegate, who shall havo a scat In the
Houso of Representatives, with tho
right to debate, but not to vote. The
delegate to Congress Is to bo chosen
nt an election of tho people. There is
no tariff provision In the bill, ns the
tariff laws of tho United States aro ex
tended over tho Islands and tho Ter
ritory ot Hawaii Is specifically mado a
"customs district of tho Uhltcd Stntcs."
with tho ports of entry nt Honolulu,

As to tho crown lauds, which havo

ing that "all Chlncso and other Asia

acquired by tho United States shall do

The following telegram from Senator CVk of Wyoming

the Moana. Although a later message vva promi-ed, Mr.
Brown thinks that his Washington friends d d not reckon the

London, April IS. 1:55 p. m. Lord
Roberts' criticisms of Genera Ilulloc,
General Wnricn nnd Colonel Thorny
crott continue topics of ncuto Interest.
All tlio afternoon papers comment at
leugtn on the strictures of the llrltlsn
:ommnmlcr-ln-chlcf In South Africa,
taking the samo lines ns tho morning
papers, praising Lord Roberts for his
frankness nud speculating upon what
tho publication of tho dispatches ut tho
present tlmo portends.
Somo of them maintain there Is noih
Ing left for General lluller but to re
sign. The St. James Gazetto is par
ticularly scathing. Referring to Gen
oral lluller's report It says:
"Never In tho history of armies diuj
It happen that generals scribbled their
;onfcsHlons of fntluro nnd defeat, of
useless deaths of men nnd of discredit
to tho (lag In a manner which suggests
a careful selection from tho forced
Jocular manner, tho slangy language
of tho horseman, and tho gabble of the
smoking room In tho evening."
Tho Globo declares that "11 more
pltlablo record ut Indecision in pl-m
ind confusion In execution wo havo sel
dom read," and adds that what llttlo
reputation General Duller had left haa
been scattered to tho winds.
Practically no developments havo
been reported In today's South Afri
can cables. A despatch from Wnrrcn
ton. dated Tuesday, April 17, says:
"Finding tho lloors busy making new
trenches wo exploded lyddlto shells,
following up theso with tho Maxims.
Tho enemy's ambulance was afterwards
observed on tho spot.
From Wepcner there Is nothing lator
than Lord Roberts message or y ester

gained uny particular advantage ut on

to tho eltfct that Harold M. Sowall was

for Governor of Hawaii.
Today tho gentleman received a tele
gram from Washington, of tho latest
hour before tlio Moana sailed, stating
that tho governorship matter had "tak

It may lio J. Addison Porter, or It
may bo fonncr Governor Foster of
Ohio. In tho caso of Mr. Porter It has
been surmised thnt his resignation,
has Just been announced, from the
olllco of private secretary to tho Presi
dent was tendered In n bun becauso ho
did not get tho coveted appointment of
Governor of Porto Rico. If such Is tho
case, tho fact Is cited to support tho
theory thnt ho can secure any position
In reason to avoid letting looso lft tho
Presidential campaign a man who
holds under his lint bo much of tho in
side workings ot tho Kxccutlvo man
sion ns ho docs.
Against Mr. Porter's chances, ac
cording to tho opinions of several ns
tuto reasoncrs seen by a Ilullctln re
porter, Is tho fact that Now England
would bo getting too much with the
Governorship of Hawaii. Chas. F.
Allen, Assistant Secretary of tho Navy,
who has been mado Governor ot Porto
Rico, Is a Massachusetts man, whllo
Mr. Porter Is from Connecticut.
Ab to Mr. Foster, who has been pull
ing tho wires for the Hawaiian guber
natorial chair, a similar theory Is pro
pounded ngalnst his chances. Judge
Tnft, president of tho Philippine Com
mission, being an Ohio man It Is doubt
ful If President MeKlnloy, especially
In a Presidential election year nnd
himself an Ohio man nud seeking to
succeed himself, could afford to carry
out tho proverbial "Ohio Idea" any
Ono thing Is taken ns a certainty.
