Washington, Feb. 17. The important
passages in the president's message on the !
annexation of Hawaii are given below. i
After stating that the treaty does not at- :
tempt to deal in detail with the questions
that grow out of the annexation, he says:
"'I do not deem it necessary to discuss at
ny length the conditions which have re
sulted in this decisive action. It has been
:he policy of the administration not only
respect but to encourage the continu
ance of an independent government in the
Hawaiian islands so long as it afforded
mi table guarantees for the protection of
ife and property and maintained a sta
Dility and strength that gave adequate se
:urity against the domination of any other
power. The moral support of this govern
ment has continually manifested itself in
the most friendly diplomatic relations and
in many acts of courtesy to the Hawaiian
I'ncle Sam Not a Conspirator.
"The overythrow of the monarchy was not
in any way prompted by this government,
but had its origin in what seems to have been
a reactionary and revolutionary policy on
the part of Queen I.iliuoakalani which put
in serious peril not only the large and
prepondearting interests of the United
States in the islands, but all the foreign in
terests and, indeed, the decent administra
tion of civil affairs and the peace of the
islands. It is quite evident : that the. mon
archy had become effete and the queen's
government so weak and inadequate as to
be the prjSy of designing and unscrupulous
Restoration Not Desirable.
"The restoration of Queen LiUv.bkalani
to her throne is undesirable, if not impos
sible, and unless actively supported by the
United States would be accompanied by
serious disaster n4 the disorganization of
all business- interests. The influence and
interest of the United States in the islands
must-, be increased and not diminished.
Only two t courses are now open- -one the
estftblishnjent pf a protectorate hp the
United States, and the other annexation
full and complete. I think the latter course,
which has been adopted in the treaty, wil,
be highly promotive of the best interests of
the Hawaiian people, and is the only one
that will adequately secure the interests of
the United States.
No Protest from Other Nations.
"These Interests are not wholly selfish.
It is essential that .none of the other great
powers shall secure these inlands. Such a
possession would not consist with our safe
ty and with the peace of the world. This
view of the situation is so apparent and
conclusive that no protest had been heard
from any government against proceedings
looking to annexation. Every foreign
representative at Honolulu promptly ac
knowledged the provisional government
and I think there is a general concurrence
in the opinion that the deposed queen
ought not to le restored."
Provisions of the Treaty.
The provisions of the treaty a far as
given were correctly stated in these dis
patches yesterday, but there are few of
iroportanc that were not given. The Ha
waiian sUgar producers will not partici
pate in me bounty given those in the
United States. A resident commissioner
is to be appointed who is to have a veto on
the proceedings of he provisional gov
ernment. Chinese now on the islands will
not be permitted to come to the United
States and no more will be permitted to
land on the islands. Iu addition to the 20,
000 annually to Queen Liliuokalani Prin
cess Kauiolani gets (150.0 9 for her rights
in a lump sum.
A Ilnrrel of lmfirrmation.
Accompanying the message and the
treaty is the correspondence upon the sub
ject b 'tween the two govern mentn, tables
giving full details as to the area of the ter
ritory proposed to be annexed, the public
debt, the public lands, the annual allow
ances to and revenue of the late royal
household and statistics as to the popula
tion and revenues, commerce and other
economic matters all together forming a
bulk of several hnndred pages.
VEST MAKES SOME REMARKS.
The Missouri Senator "Works iu" the Ha
The annexation business was brought np
in the open senate yesterday by Vest, who,
in the course of criticism of Allison's plea
the other day for economy asked why it
was that the senator from Iowa had never
thought of getting rid of the bounty paid
on sugar "Why it was that Republicans
had availed themselves of the peculiar con
dition of southern senators and representa
tives on the pension and of the timidity of
northern senators and representatives on
the same questions to pnt upon the country
the most enormous pension obligation
known to all civilization? Vest charged
Frye with the responsibility for the sugar
bounty and alluded to the attitude of Ed
munds and Morrill toward that subject.
Chandler's Care for ImmiertUos.
"The other day," Vest continued, "the
distinguished senator from Xew Hamp
shire Chandler proposed legislation pro
hibiting immigration for twelve months
first, because the immigration was of such
character as to threaten the moral and
political welfare of the couutry, and sec
ond, because of the danger of the introduc
tion of Asiatic cholera. But scarcely had
the senator's eloquence ceased to reverber
ate when a dispatch came from San Fran
eisco stating that the emissaries of a revo
lutionary government in Hawaii were on
their way to Washington for the purpose
of asking annexation to the United States.
And it was also made known to the Amer
ican people that that revolution bad been
accomplished peaceably; that a Hows
meeting' hud been called.
fiawanans At Desirable.
"And on this information, meager as it
was, the senator from Xrw Hampshire
rushed frantically into this chamber,
scarcely waiting for the conclusion of the
morning prayer, and offered a resolution
for the immediate and unconditional an
nexation of the Hawaiian islands with
their 90,000 inhabitants, about 4,0u0of them
whites.and ti e rest Kanakas, Chinese, Jap
anese, Polynesians and the lineal descend
ants of cannibals and with the institution
of leprosy firmly established in the midst
of these blissful islands. And now we are
told by the morning papers that there is to
be another 'continuing appropriation' for
the late queen of Hawaii of $-,000 a year."

I see the autocrat of the Hawaiian islands
Minister Stevens says that it ought to

thn all this furore of jingoism, we hear
any, as it is called, an immense corpora

in sugar plantations on the Hawaiian isi-
ands and the stock of which is owned al
most entirely by Claus Spreckles? That
Hock today is selling at a nominal figure;
hut, if annexation takes place millions on
millions will be put in the pockets of the
men who own this stock.
Returns to Chandler Attain.
The senator from New Hampshire
Chandler is willing to embrace leorosy,
although he shudders with fright at the
idea of Asiatic cholera. I can imagine that
statesman, after annexation is "accompli,"
as the French say, standing on the pebbly
beach at Honolulu, with his statesmanlike
eye fixed on the heaving billows of the
dark Pacific, rolling away to that glorious
land where the dreams of the ancients lo
cated the "Islands of the Blest." Before
biru glides the sylph-like form of some
Kanaka maiden, while the roar of the
breakers reminds him of the applause of
his countrymen. Looking across this im
mense area of water he might well exclaim:
"No pent Dp l"t ica contracts our powers:
The whole unbounded nniver isVrars'.
Kanakas, cholera, leprosy, and all.
Democrats Must Foot the Bill.
This "continuing" appropriation for
Hawaii on the system invented
by the senator from Maine Frye
is standing on a volcano. The erup
tions of that known as Mauna Loa are
nothing compared with that which we will
benr from the jingo statesmen in congress
and the country for the next ten days. It
is greatly to be hoped that this "continu
ing" system will not be eliminated. Let

'RUCTIQ N THE HOUSE,
of Alabama and tVaugh of Indi
ana Fighting Wroth.
WASHINGTO.s.Feb. IT. There was a pass
age of considerable scrimony yesterday
in the house between Tarsney of Missouri
and Morse of Massachusetts, Tarsney
denying that he had called pensioners
"ruffians, thieves and scoundrels" as
Morse, had alleged. He said he was responsi
ble for anything he did say, but did not use
any such language and was above sneaking
into the house and putting into its official
reports words of viltification, slander and
falsehood against his fellow member.Morse
replied that he had not attributed any
words to Tarsney that he had not under
stood him to utter.
The Scene Takes a New Turn.
The house was by this time expecting a
sensation. The arena in front of the
speaker's desk was thronged by members
who were waiting further developments
from the gentlemen from Missouri and
Massachusetts. The situation, however,
took a new and more serious turn. Morse
having yielded to Turpin of Alabama to
ak a question, the latter brought out a
scene which has not been enacted on the
floor of the house since Sparks of Illinois
and Weaver of. Iowa took off their coats
and proceeded to settle their differences by
fistictffs. Turpin inquired of the gentle
man from Massachusetts whether he was
aware of the fact that there stood today
upon the pension rolls an ex-soldier who
was drawing a pension of $18 a month for
total deafness, who was receiving a salary
of 11.800 a year and who was employed at
the telephone. Laughter.
Be Could Name the Gentleman.
Now, if any gentleman wanted to know
the name of this gentleman he could
"Name bim; name him," came in a
Turpin I do not know whether the sol
dier is a Democrat or a Republican, but in
the light of the present surroundings I sup
pose that he is a Democrat, because lie
comes from the doubtful state of Indiana.
"I do not believe your statement unless
you prove it," shouted Waugh, Republican
of Indiana, advancing into the area in front
of the speaker's desk; and then the interest
"The gentleman's name is William E.
Davis," said Turpin, leaving his position in
the main aisle and advancing toward
Not On it a "Scrap," But Nearly.
"I do not believe the statement is true,
whether you have the gentleman' name
or not," retorted Waugh.
"The gentleman can doubt the state
ment, but he cannot say that I am false,"
and with these words Turpin came down
the aisle an 1 made a manifestation of at
tack upon Waugh, who was prepared to
receive him. The two men were not sepa
rated by a foot of space and had it not been
for the intervention of Hooper of Indiana
and other gentlemen there would have
been an actual pugilistic encounter in
front of the speaker's desk.
Crisp Comes to the Rescne of Order.
Speaker Crisp seized the gavel from the
hand of the chairman, Wilson, as quickly
as his predecessor (Randall) had taken it
from the hand of Chairman Springer dur
ing the Sparks-Weaver controversy. A
touch of the authoritative hand of the
speaker procured comparative order, but
the excitement was intense. The speaker
appealed to members to put an end to this
most unseemly scene and take their seats
but it was several minutes before his ap!
peal proved of any avail. When order was
finally restored, the house finding it was in
no temper to proceed with the conidder
tion of the bill, adjourned. -
MITCHELL NOT FLUNKING.
He Is Over Here to Fight for the World's
New York, Feb. 17. Charley Mitchell,
the English pugilist, fell into the hands of
the Phillistines as soon as be arrived here. -A
zealous employe of the government re
fused to let him land, on the ground that
he was an ex-convict. (Charley got on
"skates" at London some time ago and
struck an old man, beating bim np pretty
badly. He was sent to prison for it, and
has just been released.) A writ of habea
corpus soon released Mitchell, and the re
porters got at him.
Accepts Corbett'a Cnnsaal Conditions- '
Corbett issued hut challenge the other
day proposing to fight Mitchell first If he
didn't "flunk" and making two conditions
so unusual that Mitchell might easily have
declined to accept them. Charley, bow
ever, said that "everything goes," so that
he gets a fight to a finish with Corbett. He
will cover Corbett's 10,000 in a lump, and
fight him at Coney Island, San Francisco
or New Orleans, and in a 13-foot ring if
Corbett wants close quarters. He said be -would
be ready to tight in six. weeks, or
any reasonable time.
