TALK AT THE NATIONAL CAPITAL.
the Feeling Growing in Fav.r of Annexa
tion and the Administration Decidedly
Inclined That Way Action of Our Naval
Authorities at Honolulu Approved A
Resolution Introduced In the Senate In
structing the President to Froceed with
Idlluokalani's Funeral Views of Con
gressmen Foreign Opinions.
Washington, Jan. 30. The English gov
trnment has instructed Sir Julian Paunce
tote Its minister here, to protest against
the action of the United States officials
end forces in Hawaii. The protest, it is
understood, will be lodged with Secretary
of State Foster today. To what extent the
protest goes caunot be stated now
whether it is restricted to a protest against
the action already taken in Honolulu or
whether it goes to the length of protesting
in advance against annexation sought for
by the representatives of the provisional
government now ou their way to Wash
ington. Annexation Is the Sentiment.
There are some important developments
In the Hawaiian situation, so far as the
United States is concerned. First, it is
prettly clearly indicated that the adminis
tration is not in any way lukewarm in the
mat ter. Secondly, t he action of t he coni
mauder of the Moston, against which Great
Britain is about to file, or has filed, a for
mal protest, has received the ufliciul ap
proval of the president and his cabinet.
The sentiment in favor of annexing is rap
idly extending. Several members of the
cabinet have expressed themselves as lieiiii
iu favor of accepting the proposition, but
as the action necessary to accomplish an
nexation must come as well from the leg
islative as the executive branch of the
government these declarations do not in
themselves amount to m&re than the ex
pression of opinion of private ci'izens.
The President's Supposed Views.
It has been reported that President Har
rison is in favor of the annexation. There
is in support of this statement the presi
dent's well-known policy of Americanism,
which has fo. it object the enlargement of
the sphere of usefulness and activity of this
nation. His action upon the part taken in
the revolution by the United States officials
and forces may also be regarded as proof of
the correctness of the leport. Although
the course pursued by Minister Stevens in
ordering the Uoston's marines on shore was
without explicit instructions from his gov
ernment his action has been fully approved
by the, president. In the senate there is a
distinctively American feeling on the Haw
aiian question, which is not confined to any
The Topic of Discussion.
There can be no doubt that the majority
of the foreign relations committee look
withfavor upon the establishment of
American domination Uxn the islands,
but in just what shape is a matter of deta il
that ;i8 not yet been considered. The
arrival of the commissioners from Hawaii
is awaited with much inte.rcst.but pending
their arrival t he question of annexation
and the establishment of a protectorate is
being discussed by the members of the
senate in the committee rooms and cloak
rooms and to a greater extent in legislative
Iteen Wait Ing for the Opportunity.
Mr. Dolph, a western member of the com
mittee on foreign relations, when asked
how he felt in regard to the question re
plied -tersely: "The United States has been
waiting for fifty years for this opportu
nity, and now that it has come and come
in such a way that the problem can be
solved without difficulty, I certainly can
see no reason why we should hesitate. The
man who would oppose what is the mani
fest duty of the eouulry in this matter is,
I think, hardly deserving of a seat in con
gress. I certainly favor the control of these
islands by the government of the United
HOW CHANDLER VIEWS THE CASE.
Action Must lie Taken, He Says The
Sentiment in the House.
Chandler's resolution presented in the
senate yesterday, besides instructing the
president to negotiate for annexation, re
quests the president to lay before congress
any treaty he may make for ratification by
legislation. The purpose of that language
was to permit the house of representatives
to share in the responsibility for the dispo
sition of the subject, and not to have action
taken in the senate alone and behind closed
doors. Undoubtedly this is calculated to
strengthen the proposition contained in the
resolution looking for annexation. Chan
dler says that the time has come for the
United States to annex the Hawaiian isl
lands. For years they hare been gravitat
ing toward us, but as long as a self-supporting,
autonomous government could be
maintained on the islands there was no
necessity for annexation.
Jast -What We Waat, Anyhow.
Now, however, it is apparent that posi
tive action must be taken; the native gov
ernment can no longer stand and the peo
ple are willing to come to us. It will not
be necessary for the United States to em
bark in a general policy of annexation or
colonization. What we want is Hawaii
in the Pacific and one or two points in the
West Indies. We need them for coaling
stations and for strategic outposts, and
we can stop there."
- Individual Opinions Obtained.
O'Ferrall of Virginia is opposed to the
acquisition by the United States of more
territory. Blount of Georgia (chairman of
the committee on foreign relations) de
clines to speak npon the subject nntil he
has more definite information than he has
at present received. Said Rainer of Mary
land (another member of the foreign af
fairs committee): "I am not in favor of
letting England getting possession of the isl
ands. If the question is resolved between
the United States government and the gov
ernment of Great Britain I think that the
United States should annex the Sandwich
group. Personally I favor a protec
torate." Booker Wants a Uttle Time.
Hooker of Mississippi (also member of
the committee) expressed himself as .!-
solutely opposed to any otner government
than a e United States taking posessionof
the Hawaiian islands. He desired time to
look into the treaties before he would de
clare hiuisef in favor of or opposed to
The Queen's Order Countermanded.
San iKANclsco,, Jan. 31. Hawaiian
Consul General Pratt has telegraphed
the Washington mint rescinding the queen's
order for 400,000 1-cent pieces, the same in
nickels and 100,000 dimes, which were
to bear the "phiz" of Liliuokalani instead
of that of King Kalakaua, as on the old
coin. Pratt acted on instructions from the
minister of finance of the provisional gov
ernment. He holds the appointment from
the queen and the new government both.
Cicveland Declines to Discuss Hawaii.
Xew Yokk, Jan. 31. The president-elect
came np to the city yesterday. An effort
was made to get from him an expression
of c pinion upon the quest ion of the pro
posed Hawaiian annexation and his atten
tion was called to the fact that Commis
sioner Castle, from the islands, had inti
mated that he ln-lieved that Cleveland was
inclined to regard favorably the proposals
Catlle brought to this government. The
president-elect, however, evidently intends
to say nothing until the matter conies up
before him in an official way.
Hawaii In the Senate.
Washington-, Jan. 31. Chandler in the

structing the president to negotiate for the
annexation of Hawaii, but White of Lou

PICHON WAS REAL ANGRY.
Actually Wanted to Give Derouleda a
Paris, Jan. 31. Deputies ficroulede and
Pichon fought a duel with swonis yester
day. The duel was the result of an insult
offered by Deroule.ie to Tichon in the
chamber of deputies on Saturday when De
roulede called out to Pichon: "You are
M. Here's sleeping partner." Afterwards,
in the lobby, Deroulede repeated the words,
A challenge was the result. The two men
fought with considerable vindictiveness.
Phenomenal Wrath of Fichon.
Pichon, who is a collaborator with M.
Clemcnceau, of "La Justice" was very evi
dently anxious to injure Deroulede. The
latter succeeded in wounding Pichon seri
ously in the ribs while Deroulede himself
received a scratch from Pichon's sword in
the face. The seconds declared honor
satisfied and Pichon's wound received
immediate attention. Deroulede was
warmly congratulated by his friends.
fLLlNOIS LEGISLATIVE DOINGS.
A Matter if Interest to Newspapers
Sundry Bills Introduced.
Pprisgfielp, Jan. 31. The state senate
yesterday was in session only long enough
to hear the journal read. In the house the
bill to pay newspapers for printing the
ballot reform law was sent to third read
ing. A resolution was introduced! favor
ing American supremacy in Hawaii, and
went over for a day. Bills were intro
duced: To regulate stock yard telephone
and telegraph charges: making it a mis
demeanor for state officials or legislators
to accept railway passes; to repeal the
prsvlsion in the city incorporation law al
lowing cities to make improvements by as
sessing property on the basis of its frontage.
Tha Chambermaid Was in Luck.
New Yokk, Jan. Jl. Nellie Fitzgerald,
a chambermaid, received an unexpected
present of $530 on Saturday afternoon.
She is the Fifth Avenue hotel servant who
found $2,500 in diamonds which Mrs.
Charles T. Yerkes, wife of a Chicago mil
lionaire, lost last Tuesday. Mrs. Yerkes
left the jewels wrapped in a handkerchief
and tucked under her pillow. The parcel was
found rolled up in a sheet. It was said at
the hotel that Mr. Yerkes deposited a $500
check to the chambermaid's credit and
that Mrs. Yerkes gave her $30 in cash be

Later in the evening the archbishop's con
