Wi-hlnRton, Jan. t. Less than twenty
semtors were In Ihclr -enls today when
Vice l'ipshlcnt Stevcrisoii rnlled tho scnatp
lo older. ,ftcr the joutnnl had been np
proved nlid the routine morning business
trull-acted, .Mr. Lodge (Hep , -Mass.) ad'
drcscd Hie senate upon his ipsolutlon of
Ituiuliy as lo why Iho t'tiltcd Slates tint
ship tiiiit ,pn withdrawn fiom Honolulu,
Ml, LodRp said: "At thp beginning or the
session 1 Introduced a resolution nsklng for
Ihe reports and cortepondence of Adt11lr.1t
Walker In regard to Hawaii. My motive In
so doing was because I believed the opin
ions and observation of n distinguished
and able naval otllcer, who Is necessarily
outside of nil politics, would be of great
value to us in uudet standing the condition
of nfTnlis there, and In reaching a proper
know ledge of our relations with those Isl
nnds. Admiral Walker's pipers were, ns I
had anticipated, most valuable on these
points. They showed that to a disinterest
ed observer nctualed by no motive but the
Inteiests of the t'nlled States, It was per
fectly clear (hat our true policy was the
annexation of those Ishnds, They eon-
llrmed In this way the views expressed
by Hip spume In n resolution of last sum
mer and which I believe nro the views held
by substantially all the American people,
except those concerned In the present ad
ministration. All this wns valuable Infor
mation, but Admlial Walker's last letter
biought out strongly u highly Importnlit
point which has thus far not been appre
ciated. It was known to us through the
pi ess that all our warships had ben with
drawn from Ilnwall nml that, although o.v-
eral were lilng Idle at Mare's Island, none
hid been sen! back lo Honolulu The last
letter of Admlial Walker to which I have
leferred discloses In a striking way the
danger and Impolicy of this course and ulo
proves that our government had been
Will nee! In regard to It b un ollleer entitled
to speak on such a point with Hip ail'tior
Ity of nn expert. Admiral Walker pais
with great frankness Hut IT the British
men-of-war, ns well as our own, had been
withdrawn, It might have been n good thing
certainly It would have done no harm to
the stablllt.i of government In the Isl mil "
He then lefened to the manner In which
I'nglnnd reached out lo Incicnse her po--sesslons,
and nsterled that the Ililtlsh ship
encouraged the Hawaiian rojnllsts, while,
the absence of the American vessel gave
cncour.igi ment to a eounter revolution, lie
also referred to the fact that Japan bad ,1
warship at Hawaii He said the Impor
tance of Hawaii to the United States could
not be 01 er estimated, and would become
greater upon the completion of the Nlcar
agunn cnnal. He continued
"Pndci such circumstances to leave thoo
Islands without the eonlldence tind protec
tion of an American ship of wat and leave
our Interests in Pearl harbor and the Inter
est of our cltlrens unguarded appears te mo
wiong In the icry highest degree. What
motive actuates the administration In this
extr.iordln.uy policy It Is impossible to
say. If It Is thtlr deshe to throw the Sand
wich Islands Into the hands of Great Brit
ain, as they have openl) proposed to tlo
with Simoa, their action Is comprehensi
ble, hut nothing else explains It. Such a
policy Is so unpatriotic, however, that it Is
dllllcult to conceive 'hat It should bo en
tertained It seems to me that In view of
the vast importance of the Sandwich Isl
ands to this countr great wiong has been
committed in withdrawing our ships ut
this moment and that a man-of-war bhoulel
be sent there at once. It Is for this reason
that I have Introduced this resolution of
Inepihy, and I think our government owes
It to the people to send 11 man-of-war to
Honolulu without 1lel.1v. If they do not do
this, the.! will no right to remain silent as
to theii icasons for Mich an e.xtraoi dinar)
At the ton. Iiision of .Mi. Lodge's remarks
Mr. Hutler (I)ein S C.) moied the iefer
ence of the risolution of the committee on
Mr Aldilih suggested that tin resolution
be modtlicd so as lo lequest Infoi illa
tion on the subjee t fiom the pielilent.
Mr, Morgan (Dim. All ) declared himself
In faior ot annexation and a good filend to
the people of Hawaii At the mine time
the resolution should go to the i ommlttee
on foreign relulons. He helleveil the new
icpubllt of Hawaii should have an oppor
tunity to show the w 01 Id that It did not
need a iruuh lo help It along

1-. (.pet I for Admit.! Wulku, but .said that

what (iitat Hiitiiiu would do In the eient
of 1 e main eontlngencies. He Insisted upon
the lefei.nee of tlie resolution to the 1 om

Mr. Hale (Hep Mc.) urged the adoption
of the resolution.
Mr. Grap (Dent. Del ) spoke or the "scan
dal" and "-hauii" to the Ameilc.in people
that had been biought about by the late
Inteiferenie on Hawaiian aflaiih and said
he hopetl Hint the counli) would not ngnln
be smirched b) It, and In ansxier lo the
senator fiom Mass.u huselts (Lodgt) he
would s.i) that the larger body of public
opinion slimed the views he expresseil
Mr Aldrlch nNo took part In the discus
sion at this point and uskeel Mi. lira' eon
11 ruing the stationing of a ship In Ha
waiian waters by this Roiernment, which
leil the latter to remark that very unfor
tunately the IP was a vessel tailed tho Bos
ton stationed theie some time ago. Mr
Aid! lib then went on to say a commission
of Hawaiian rn).illsis had visited Wash
ington some time ago and he had been
told subsequent!) 10 that visit tho Cnltcd
States ships nt the Islands had been with
ili.mn and had not bicn replaced. He did
not say their withdinwal was on account of
the commission's vls.t, but It was rather a
sinKul.il "Ircumstante that the) should
have been wlthdiawn following It, The
fact the ships huil been withdrawn consti
tuted ,1 sulliclent reason why Ihe Ineinliy
should Iim made.

this loutlnued Jiugler) on the Hawaiian
question was kept up bj the parly In

Sir. Teller (Hep . Col.) said he admitted
tlurn had been toniu haste on the pait of
the outgoing administration In attempting
to In lug Ibeso Ulanils under our (lag, but
hu asserted that an examination of the
puhllo utteran"es, Irrespective of paity,
would show that tho great body ot tho
American people s-mpnthUeil with the
