It is finite within the ranire of nos-1

from the Islands to Washington to as

The matter has been given most care
ful consideration by the Executive and
while nothing definite has been decid

to do its share in the premises. Should
circumstances arise making such a
Iirocedure necessary, a commission
will be selected and desiatehed to the
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

come from Minister Hatch, it would be

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

Gen. A. S. Hnrtwell, attorney for
