W.auxoToN, Sep-. 4.-There is good
authority for the statement that the
i president has returned to Washington
with these general ideas up'trmost in
his mind as to the future comseo in rela
tion to the now dependencie2:
Civil government by thrc coramis
sioner4to supplant military rule immo
diately after the rebellion is crushed.
Continued military control until it is
determined by means of a general elee.
tion whether the inhabitants want in
dependence or annexation. If inde
pendence, the new government eected
will be recognized by flie United States
and will be given encouragement and
every opportunity to establish its ;ta
bility. If snexation, the president will
be governed by the sentiment of Ameri
can citizens as it may then exist.
Civil government of the territorial
form, similar to'that which prevails in
Territorial form of government as
recommended by the Hawaiian commis
sion and as provided for in a measure
now pending in congress.
Some weeks will elapse- before the
president settles down to the actual
preparation of his message, but he has
returned from his vacation with some
well defined views as to the difficult
problems which confront him and will
immediately commence discussions of
details with the members of his cabinet.
