It is finite within the ranire of nos-1 sibility that a commission will be sent from the Islands to Washington to as sist in the campaign for annexation. The matter has been given most care ful consideration by the Executive and while nothing definite has been decid ed on, the Government is quite willing to do its share in the premises. Should circumstances arise making such a Iirocedure necessary, a commission will be selected and desiatehed to the American capital. Minister Smith, in discussing the Xrobability of such action on the part of the Government, said the Hawaiian Legation at Washington has not asked for assistance toward securing annex ation, but if such a request should come from Minister Hatch, it would be ncted upon, without delay. He ex pressed the belief that everything pos sible was being done by tne Hawaiian r,tirRfntatlvn! iilirn.nl tmvnnl iinvhur the way for closer union with the ! United States. Then again the pres-j ence of Mr. Thurston in the States yould, no doubt, be the means of much good in the direction sought. The Minister concluded ills remarks by saying that tlie Government would be equal to the occasion if an emergency arose calling for the services of a com mission to go to Washington, and that prompt action would be taken toward that end. PLANTATION ENGINES. Two Baldwin locomotives were among the cargo of the Australia. One is destined for the Hawaiian Agri cultural Company's plantation at Pa hala; the other for Pauilo. The latter bears the name of "Charles Notlcy," in honor of the plantation manager. The one for Pahala Is not yet named, but will 'likely be called "Daniel Fost er," after one of the former managers of the ilacc. The engine for Pahala will go out next Tuesday by the Mauna Loa.

Speedy Run from Yokohama to This 1'ort 200 Tons of Freight for This Port Four Passengers for Honolulu The Occidental & Oriental steamship Doric arrived in port bright and early this morning after a banner run of 0 days and 10 hours from Yokohama, She beat her best previous time on the run by 8 hours 22 minutes, and the Coptic's best time by three hours, com-' ng within four hours of the record now held by the crack steamship. China. Had it not been that it would have been impossible to dock at a much earlier hour Capt. Smith thinks that he might liave taken a few shingles from' the China's record. The whole run o the Doric since leaving Honolulu has been an excep tionally speedy an pleasant one, nnd she cracked nearly ull of her old records between ports. On the out ward voyage the run to Yokohama was made in 10 days, 9 hours; from Kobe to Nagasagi in 1 day 1 hour 20 min utes; from Shanghai to Hongkong in 2 days, 2 hours, 20 minutes; from Shanghai to Nagasaki in 1 day 4 hours 42 minutes and from Kobe to Y'oyo- hours 5 minutes, fine weather was experienced during the entire voyage. The1 vessel has been two trips on" the drydock, and no special effort was made to get siecd out of her, but the conditions were favorable. She gave an exhibition of what she can do without handicaps. The Doric is deep with freight for San Francisco and has 2G0 tons for this iort. Mer iassengcr list is not large, but contains the names of many Xeoi)le of more or less note. Caxt. P. A. Dithlcfsen, an inland sea iilot, is among the passengers for this xort. He is in search of health, and will re main here for some time. Dr. A.

I ill ROUGH 111 il H GEN. A. S. HARTWELL DEPARTS TOMORROW MORNING. Denies That He is Going on Cable Business Partly for Change and Pleasure Will Visit New York. Gen. A. S. Hnrtwell, attorney for Pacllle Cable Company, will leave on the steamship Doric tomorrow morn ing for San Francisco and thence to Washington. It is intimated that his mission is one of great importance to i the cable project and news from the Capitol City will be eagerly awaited upon his arrival there. Gen. Hnrtwell, however, stoutly denies that his trix will have anything to do with the cable. "I am not going to Washington on cable business," he said in an inter view, "nor am I going there cither at the instance of the Government or of any other person. I am going partly for the change and jileasure of travel, but mainly-in order to sec certain pcr- sons in Washington with whom I am acquainted. I shall then call on a few friends in New York nnd Boston and hoxe to return by the Rio on April 17th. "The fate of the cable measure now before Congress will probably be de cided before my in-rival there; but I have nothing to do with advocating the cable arrangement proposed by the New York Company. But while absent I shall certainly not hesitate to say what I think about annexation and treaty matters." WONDERFUL CONTRIVANCE. VeriscoiH! Presented in Honolulu for First Time. A select audience, not large in num bers, but generously appreciative, witnessed the veriscope exhibition given at the Hawaiian opera house by Frank R. Clifton last evening. It was the ilrst time this wonderful bit of i.icchanism has been exhibited on the islands, and while the conditions were unfavorable 1o its perfect operation, the display was meritorious enough to win the hearty plaudits of 1 le aud 't'lice, who repeatedly denial, led en eoi es. The veriscope is a contrivance by means of which series of instantan eous photographs of objects, animate and inanimate, in motion are pro duced in life size upon a scict n in quick succession with such accuracy that the picture, presented has nil the life and motion of the original scene. A 'watermelon contest" between two darkies is a laughable scene, and the gentleman who cranes his neck au peers over the footlights at the aud ience while the great McKinley parade ..A -N- -v 1 ! !... ; . . .1 . ...... Pennsylvania railroad ferry steamer Chicago entering her slip are very life like reproductions. The choicest and most realistic scene in the set, how ever, is the New York fire department and salvage corps turning out to n lire. The engines, ladder trucks and hose carts are seen coming down the street, nnd men, women and children lly in all directions to get out of the way. For nearly four minutes every movement of the firemen Is faithfully counterfeited. They unreel the hose and attach It to the fire plug: the en gine puffs black smoke and clouds of steam escape from the exhaust; con- served to swell as it fills with water, and then the powerful stream bursts from the nozzle, nnd Is played upon a burning building in the background. Thd whole thing is as realistic as In life. SUNDAY CONCERT. There will be another concert at Mokee Island nt 3 Sunday afternoon. Professor Berger nnnounces the fol lowing program: Part 1.

The next gathering will be in May, at Kona Wa ena, and in the meantime the precept ors of the North will meet monthly at Holualoa, for practical study under Mrs. Scott, and those of South Kona at Nnpoopoo with Mr. -Mills as leader. The era of cold nights seems to be past and as the thermometer said 49 degrees early one morning nnd at 1500 feet elevation, the hill residents are glad. The 30th was memorable as being one of the roughest days, from the ! freight-landing point of view, for n ' considerable period. Several landings were made with difficulty, and at Ken-" lckekua the commodities ol life were put nshore at Kaawaloa. Nopoopoo wharf being too exposed, except for hurried transfer of mail bags and a few drenched passengers. Hookena mail and passengers were boated to the coast near Honaunau and freight carried along; the low platform at the regular landing being considered dangerous.
