Honolulu, July 28, via San Francisco,
Aug- 4---The Hawaiian government has
finally C-jUded to exclude Chinese coolie

is taken to ibow tho-.2 m the United State
who appose annexation that Hnwail pro

ment has formally decided to i-sue no more
eix months. residence permit--, to the
Chinese Thia preliminary step is taken
in view ot the pledge made to the United
JSttiteb on tne annexation question.
A prominent official of the government
"We feeJ that annexation is rea-onaUy
cure, and hence that it would be a breach
of faith, to approve contracts for a lot of
Chinew laborers. Tbi order hag not been
made final, -tut snould it appear by advices
received bv th rt,eamer Moanx, exoected

will come to an end. It would be unjust
to the United States to load np the islands
with Chinoe coolie- on Hip eve of aunexu
tion.and this is what mmy planters would
do if they had. a chance, for the Chines
are ehtMj-r and more effective than any
othT class of contract labor."
Chinese Commercial Agent Goo Kim Ful
thought this action of the government was
premature and ill-advised. He saldr

From Our Minister to Hawaii.
At the Stite Department it was authori

by him to oreate a United States protector
It is known that the Japanese govern
ment is playing a shrewd game of diplo
matic politics with this country over the
Hawaiian situation, but Jit the Department
of Stat it is not believed that the Japanese
will do anything to warrant this Govern
eminent In establishing a protectorate. It
is the Japanese policy to beguile tnelTnlted
States into an expression of opinion which
may be so construed as to show that this
country sanctioned and consented to the
arbitration projscd by Hawaii to Japan.
If such an expression cobld Ire obtained
the Japanese would endeavor to force,
diplomatically, the United States to ob
serve the findings of the arbitrators after
annexation It Is to avoid Just snob a
trap that the State Department has In
sisted tliat Hawaii and Japan must -settle
their own arbitration matters without re
gard bo the United States and annexation.
This country will not recognize any treaty
between Hawaii and other nations after
Hawaii Ih annexed, if such treaties are not

Havana, via Key West. Aug. L Gen,
Vfcyler left Havana yesterday evening for
Matanzas, on the warship Vasco Nunez.
He did not dare to go by land, as the
country around Havana and the railroad
between Matanzasr and the capital are.
controlled by the Insurgents
Weyler arrived at Matanzas this morn,
ing, and immediately conferred with the
military authorities about the situation,
-which in the environs of that city, is as
grave as In theneighborhoodof the capital.
The journey of Weyler by sea from
Havana to Mnntanzas, which in normal
times may be made by the railroad In
three hours, is evident proof of the truth
of the military situation in thia province
heretofore reported. Were It not for the
fuH control at tfee sea. by Spain the oap tain

DALEY "TO SE INSPECTOR
Rumored DerelopmeiiiS of the
MAJOR MCORE WILL REMAIN
The "Fighting Sergeant" of the
Fourth Precinct to Uo Slated for
Promotion New Orders to Be
Is.fc.ued by tho Police Depart
mentOther Changes Coming.
Now that Commh-sioner Wight has begun
his loug-hcrnlded investigation of the
police department, the air la thick with
rumors of prospective- changes.
It Is certain that one ot the. first effects
of the sifting process will be r thorough
shukc-up in the detective bureau, and it
Is almost equally certain that Inspector
UolHuberg'jr will be removed from the head
of that department.
Scrgt. Daley, of the Fourth precinct, long
know n as one- of the moot efficient and
shrew'deht officers on the rolls or tho
police department, will. In all probability,
Since It was known that Hollinberger
would probably be removed, high ofriciara
and influential citizens who have noted
Sorgt Daley's excellent record have called
the Commissioners attention to- his claim
for promotion. Among others who have
given him the highestiiidorsemeiitls Major
George E. Harries, chairman of the law
and order committee or the Board ot
Trade, who, it is stated, refused the po
sition ot major of police when It was.
tendered him by the Commissioners
Sergt. Daley became best known, per
haps, through, his remarkablo work In
cieanl'ig out the lawless, element in that
part or South Washington covered by the
Fourth precinct. Up to the time he was
placed there as sergeant several years
ago the police could do almost nothing
with th& crowds of rough's who made
it their stamping ground. Jiurders and
affrays were matters of frequent occur
rence and the section was full of "speak
easies." This off icer,. ever since his appearance in
the precinct, has waged a- feailesa and
relentless war upon all thfl lawbreakers
and soon earned the tit!- by which In is
still known throughout South Washington,
that of "Fighting Sergeant Daley." One
of his chief victories was the breaking up
ot Shea's saloon, cornel of Four-and-a italt
and Missouri avenue, the resort for some
ot the toughest characters in the city.
For this tlm members of thn gang pvvore
to kill him, but he kept on and finally
cleared them entirely out
Should Sergeant Daley receive the ap
pointment, and it la Mated on excellent
authority that he will, there if no doubt
that the detectivo service ot this city
will in a shcrt time be able to compar
favorably with any in the country.
Another reform, cuntempluted iu the de
tective bureau 1& the division ot the force
each to be in- charge ot a fcergeant. The
complaint la now made that some of the
men. spend too much. oC their, time in
the depots and around hotols, Instead of
watching criminals, but under the new sya
tern each sergeant will, ba responsible Cor
the squad under his. command. ItLs proba
ble also that several of the detectives, will
be reduced to patrolmen, while, some at the
latter on account ot theic good records
will be promoted to the. detefti'.e bureau.
Major Moore will undoubtedly remain at
the head ot the police department, as has.
been before stated in The Times, and will'
be given a- freer hand in thii management
ot his men. and in. the direction of re
forms: than before. Commissioner Wight
has found that the shortcomings of tho
force wer- not at all attributable to the
head, but, If anythmg, to the fact that
the major has beeu more or less hampered:
as the executive- ot the department, and
accordingly the utmost attention will be
given his recommendations. One ot tha
first of these resulting from the recent in
vestlgatio'i of the Carr escape will ba an
order directing sfcatlonkeepers to ba awake
all nighs, iiiMead of leaving an. ordinary
patrolman in charge from 12 to 2. In the
morning: as"at present.
Another will probably he In line with
the one placing a lieutenant at headquar
ters every night, and will direct that a
sergeant remain, in the station al night, mo
that tnere may be some one in authority
to give directions- as- to the disposition of
prisoners und the like. Trequent complica
tions have arisen heretofore from rhef.icr
that at night, after the Mcritenants have
left the aationsr there would be only tho
stationkeeper In charge, and, as he ha
not the- requisite authority, prisoners who
nhould otherwise have-been released liare
been kept iir confinement. Other changes
are developing, and a number will prob
ably be heard of within the next week or
