PEARL HARBOR
Representatives Bowl Over the
Appropriation
Annoxatlo1iatBInalilnorltyof 3B
on tho Tost Voto Hilborn Sums
Up tho Situation
Washington May 11 Tho most
interesting dobato in tho House to
day was on tho appropriation of
550000 to improvo Pearl Harbor in
the Hawaiian Islands which was
rojeoUd by a vote of 85 to 53 Hitt
of Illinois past and prospective
chairman of tho Committee on For
eigu Affairs oarnostly urgod tho im
portanco of taking stops to confirm
tho titlo of this Government to tho
harbor in view of the Senate pro
posal to abrogate tho Hawaiian
treaty Hitt said in part
If tho Hawaiian Islands worn an
nexed to morrow tho necessity for
tho adoption of this amandmant
would remain as urgent as ever
Wo havo tried for thirty yours to
securo naval stations in many parts
of tho world and not ono havo wo
to day Tho navy of Groat Britain
which is so powerful can bo placed
in any part of the globe and bo
within roach of supplios as woll as
facilities for repair Our Navy in
case of war would bo helpless as
soon as its coal ran out In the
Pacific Ocean the great powers of
tho world England Prance Gor
many Spainall possoss one two
ten twenty spots from which to fit
out ships that would devastate our
coasts
How important does England
deem this advantage when bIio has
poured out such millions upon those
little roofs and peaks and hills of
tho Bermudas For what has nil
that been expended Not to fight
with France not upon the possi
bility of a struggle with Russia her
groat rival It is beoauso thosn ships
carry guns thai may coma into our
ports it is bocauso they will be tho
most torriblo weapons against us in
tho contingency of war
Now if that treaty fails if it is
abrogatod Groat Britain will in
stantly press for now relations with
Hawaii Instautly Japan will be
prossiug aud fioreoly pressing In
tho telegrams this morning I road
that tho cruiser Naniwa has already
arrived at Hawaii to pross threaten
ing claims upon that fooblo Govern
ment Wo will only hold ifr with
our guns in position nnd this very
troaty in diplomatic discussion has
boon construed to givo us authority
to eroct fortifications thero
MoMillin Then tho gontlomana
purpose is first to improvo tho
harbor and than fortify it
Hitt All that belongs to the gen
tleman who will follow on this floor
I speak- of the polioy and of the
wisdom of theGovornmont liko ours
looking to tho fact that the sea
power is tho test of rank and sue
coss of the nations of tho future
Wo havo hore n moment in which
by this small expenditure wo can
put our foot down and do moro
than havo a hypothetical right to
havo something moro than a con
tention in a diplomatic discussion
to plant our flag at tho outranco of
that rivor and it will not come
down in a thousand years
Cannon ropliod to Hitt saying
that this Govornmont was in no
groat danger if Congress did not
mako tho appropriation at this
sunson Tho harbor has boon grant
ed to tho United States absolutely
for oil timo ho said aud was as
much our proporty aa any harbor
on tho Pacific Coast Ho belioved
tho Government should improvo
Pearl harbor as it would any othor
harbor it owned when it neodod im
provomout It was within fivo miles
of Honolulu harbor wboro the vos
sols of tho United Stato3 had always
boon nblo to coal and always would
bowhilo thoy had tho inonoy to pay
for tho coal Tho appropriation
would not BuQicotodiodgo the snuti
from tho harbor 1 ho inhabitants
would raise tho price of thoir cornor
lots as soon as improvements woro
commenced on tho harbor The
appropriation was not sufficient to
buy a foot of land or bogin a naval
station Cannon did not beliovo in
magnifying tho importance of thuso
international matters aud bocoming
frightened at thii or that nation
The itom was opposed by Siyers
Instead of looking abroad for ob
jects of legislation Congress should
look to tho relief of its own pooplo
Cummings D of New York
spoko earnestly in favor of tho ap
propriation
Hilborn R of California said
Tho United States has bought a
shoot of water at Pearl harbor but
not a foot of land All tho land at
Pearl harbor has been bought by
speculators who hold it in expecta
tion that tho United States must
buy When tho United Statos was
so badly off for naval stations at
homo it was folly to build thorn
abroad ho said In caso of war nil
tho power of tho Navy would bo re
quired to hold Pearl harbor and in
case of annexation the harbor wonld
bo unnecessary
Simpson Pop of Kansas advo
cated tho project and Honry R of
Connecticut and Walker R of
Massachusetts spoko iu favor of the
amendment Sayers warnud Con
gress that ho next stop iu lino with
tho proposed policy would bo annex
ation He warned them not to bo
frightened by the report that Eng
land would tako possossiou of the
islands Next to a conflict with
my own brother ho ssid I would
doploro war with England I dont
bolieve England wauta a war with
us any moro than wo want a war
with her
A voto was taken on Hitts motion
to concurin tho Sonato amoudmont
which failed by a voto of 53 to 85
Comparatively fow Rofftiblloans
woro present and the voto was near
ly a party one Half a dozou Demo
crats and Populists including Cum
mings of Now York Tate of Goor
gia King of Utah and Populists
Simpson and Ridgley of Kausas
voted to conour and about a dozou
Republicans among them Cannon
Hilborn Parkor Moody of Massa
chusetts Brodrick of Kansas Brom
woll of Ohio and Linnoy of North
Carolina Tho Pearl harbor amend
ment was sent to conference
Hilborn to night said that ho had
studied tho result of tho voto of tho
House on tho amendmont which re
sulted in uon couourrouce and ho
boliovod the nunexhtiouists would
never again bo ablo to show so much
strength Ho said the strength was
tho romnant of tho Harrison ad
ministration fooling tho
faction and thosa socurod by
personal work of tho Hawaiian dele
gation In his opinion it showed
tho high water mark of annexation
soutimont and indicated that not
only was tho House opposed to
olosor relations but nlso to recipro
city
