Considerable, interest has been
manifested In Washington by the
statement attributed to tho secretary
of war In his remarks at a public
banquet In Honolulu on July 4th when
ho announced that the government
entertained ambitious plans for tho
extending of the defenses of Hono
lulu nnd contemplated' a considerable
Increase In tho military force In tho
Islands. This subject has been under
consideration In the general staff, but
the increase of tho troops In Hawaii
Is for the present out of tho question.
Tbo eight troops of the 5th Cavalry
tho one battalion of the 20th Infantry,
tho two companies of coast artillery,
and tho company of engineers constl
tute the force .which Is likely to rep

Army in ho Hawaiian Islands. The
force cannot bo Increased unless there
