Washington, Fob. 17. Following is
tho text of tho president's messago sent
to congrcsn lu connection with tho
treaty of annexation:
To tho Senate:
I transmit herewith, with a view to
its ratification, a treaty of annexation
concluded on tho 14th day of February,
lb93, between John W. Foster, secre
tary of state, who was duly empowered
to act in that bshalf on the part of the
United States, and Lorrin A. Thurs
ton, W. U. Castle, XV. C. Wilder,
C L. Carter and Joseph Mars
den, the commissioners on tho
part ot tho government of tho
Hawaiian islands. Tho provisional
treaty, it will bo observed, does not
attempt to deal in detail with the
questions that grow out of tho annexa
tion of tho Hawaiian islands to tho
United States. The commissioners rep
resenting the Hawaiian government
have consented to leavo to the future
and to the just and benevolent purposes
of tho United States tho adjustment of
all such questions. I do not deem it
necessary to discuss at length the con
ditions which havo resulted in this
decisive action. It has been tho
policy of tho administration not
only to respect, but to en
courage tho continuance of nnd
independent government in tho Ha
waiian islands, so long as it afforded
suitable guarantees l'or tho protection
of life and property, and maintained a
stability and strength that gave ade
quate security against the domination
of any other power. The moral sup
port of this government has continu
ally manifested itself in the most
friendly diplomatic relations, nnd in
many acts of courtesy to tho Ha
waiian rulers. Tho overthrow of the
monarchy was not in any way promoted
by this government, but had its origin
in what seems to havo been a reac
tionary and revolutionary policy on
the part of Queen Liliuokalani, which
put in serious peril not only the largo
and prepondering interests of tho
United States in the islands, but all
foreign interests, and, indeed, the decent
administration of civil affairs and tho
peace of the islands. It is quite evident
that the monarchy had become quite
effete, and tho queen's government so
weak and inadequate as to bo the prey
of designing and unscrupulous persons.
The restoration of Queen Liliuokalani
to her throne is undesirable, if not im
possible, and unless actively sup
ported by the United States, would
be accompanied by serious disaster and
the disorganization of all business in
terests. Tho influence and interest of
the United States in the islands must
be increased, nnd not diminished.
Only two courses aro now open one,
the establishment of a protectorate by
the United States, and the other annex
ation full and complete. 1 think the
latter course, which has been adopted
in the treaty, will be highly promotive
of the best interests of the Hawaiian
people, and is the only ono that will
adequately secure the interests of tho
United States. These interests are not
wholly selfish. It is essential that none
of the other great powers shall secure
these islands. Such a possession would
not consist with our safety and with the
peace of the world. This view of tho
situation is so apparent and conclusive
that no protest has been heard from
any government against proceedings
looking to annexation. Every for
eign representative at Honolulu
prompt! j' acknowledged the provisional
government, and I think thero is a
general concurrence in the opinion that
the deposed queen ought not to be re
stored. Prompt action upon this treaty
is very desirable. If it meets with tho
approval of the senate peace and good
order will bo secured in the islands un
der existing laws until such time as
congress can provide by legislation a
permanent form of government for the
islands. This legislation should be, and
1 do not doubt v ill be, not only just to
the natives and nil other residents and
citizens of the islands, but should bo
characterized by gicat liberality and a
high regard to the rights of all the peo
plo nnd of all foreigners domiciled
there. Tho correspondence which ac
companies tho ticaty will put the sen
ate in possession of all the facts know n
to the executive.

Mrs. Isaacs, wife of the hotel proprie

Topeka, Knn., Feb. 10. Nothing
but tho wiser counsel of tho calmor
tenders of tho opposing parties to th'o
ttrugglo for tho control of tho lower
houso of tho lcglslaturo prevented n
icrlou3 conflict and a shedding of blood.
Wednesday afternoon tho republicans
locked themselves iu tho roprcsontatlvo
hall and aro now standing a slcgo
against tho populists.
Not since tho tltno when tho nntl
slavery and pro-slavery forces wero ar
raigned In hostllo attitude against ono
another, has political excitement ran
to high as it ran Wendesday, nnd not
ninco thoso perilous times has a politi
cal situation como so near developing
Into a battle with arms.
Tho troublo aroso out of tho bitter
ness of last fall's campaign for tho po
litical control of tho state, and when
tho republicans selected sixty-thrco
members, a majority of one, of tho
lowcn houso of tho legislature, tho
populists claimed that three of thoso
sixty-three members had been given
certificates by mistake, nnd that their
populist opponents had in fact been
elected. This being tho case, they de
cided to not permit tho republicans to
orgnnizo the house, and thus array an
opposition branch of tho government
against tho populist senate and tho
populist governor, and enabling them
to kill proposctl populist legislation.
Tho result of this decision on tho part
of the populists was tho organization
of two distinct houses, ono by the re
publicans and ono by tho populists.
All agreed that tho question of which
was tho legal houso should bo left to
tho courts, but the populists steadily
rofused until Into Tuesday afternoon
to tako any action upon which tho re
publicans could baso an action in law,
and havo refused to tako any legal
steps to test the republican position.
Soon after they entered tho hall tho
populist's janitor turned off tho steam.
Tho military guards without tho hall
will permit no ono to enter, and tho re
publicans havo no moans of supplying
themselves with food or with artificial
heat Tho republicans having become
masters of representative hall, only
two means of dislodging them present
ed themselves to tho populist leaders.
Ono was to put them out and tho other
was to starve them out The more hot
headed leaders advised that tho militia
bo called out and bo ordered to eject

havo practically abandoned tho Add.
They met at noon Thursday iu tho
basement of tho capitol and decided to
mako no further attempt to gain en
trance to representative hall.
Thursday morning food was smug
gled into tho republicans nnd no serious
attempt was mado to prevont what they
sent for. Vast crowds gathered around
tho stato houso early Thursday morn
ing and tho excitement wns so high
that, had a conilict occurred, citizens
would have joined in tho light
Topokn was black and bluo Thursdny.
It was black with people who had como
from tho four quarters of tho stato to
"seo tho fun." It was bluo with the
troops. Every train that has urrived
during tho past twclvo hours ha3
brought its complement of troops and
ropubllcnn and populist volunteers
armed with Winchesters, shotguns and
revolvers, anxious to tako a hand in tho
fight which was anticipated for Thurs
day. Tho capitol on all sides is surrounded
with soldiers and citizens. At every
approach to the building a picket lino
is maintained. No ono is allowed In
side without a pass signed by tho
governor and countersigned by tho
adjutant-general. Legislators with
out passes stand no better chanco of
trotting through tho linos thnn tho
multitudo of anxious and curious who
puck tho streets.
Tho troops aro composed of a decided
majority of republicans, and are, to say
tho least, lukewarm in tho performance
of their duties. The example sot for
them by Col. Hughes, who refused tho
governor's orders to eject tho republic
ans from representative hall, has had
a demoralizing effect. Tho adjutant
general issued an order that no provis
ions should be allowed to bo taken into
tho hall by any means whatever.
Friends from the outsldo took well
filled baskots of provisions to tho cap
itol, and tho guards on duty allowed
them to bo drawn up into tho hall by
means of ropes.
