PROGRESS OF THE HAWAIIAN REFUND RILL The refuud bill is making progress at Washington. Enemies to the proposition develop, but there is much influential and pronounced opinion favorable. Delegate Kalanlanaole writes to the Honolulu press to this effect, as follows: "Washington, D. C, Feb. 17. Vork on our revenue measutc was promptly renewed by the delegation and myself at the beginning of this week. On Monday forenoon, by appointment, in company with Colonel Hepburn, I presented the delegation to Speaker Caution at his private room. The Speaker gave us a very careful audience and asked num erous questions bearing upon the validity of our claims. His remarks and questions atso clearly reflected his personal knowledge of Hawaiian conditions. We, of course, did not expect him to make any expression in favor ol the bill, but his attitude seemed, in the main, friendly, and he did not raise some of the radical objections to the proposition that wc expected. Immediately afterwards I presented the delegation to Chair man Tawney, in his committee room. The essentials of the bill had already been gone over with Mr. Tawney, and he again expressed his implied favor of the measure. Representative Bourke Cochran was seen by a member of the delegation,. and he pledged his hearty support to the measure. Thh same gentleman.5 however, when he presented another letter of introduction to John. Sharps Williams, the minority leader, was met with a sharp rebuff, and the statement that he did not care to even listen to any reasons in favor of this bill, as his mind was already firmly made up against it. We hove also been given to understand that Mr. Lloyd will oppose the bill, and if'is possible that an effort will be made by the Democratic leader to gather opposition to its passige. "On Monday afte noon, I presented the delegation to Senators Per kins, Warren, Flint and Beveridge, all of whom expressed themselves as favoring my bill. ; "On Tuesday, our appointment hearing was made before the Senate Committee on Pucific Islands and Porto Rico, Senators Foraker, Flint, Rayner, Pyles, Wetmore and Clappf being present. The main argument was made by Mr. George Wf Smith, with brief additional statements by others. Sentiment in this Senate Committee seemed to be in favor of some friendly action, although soma of. the drift of their talk was toward cutting down both the percentage -ati'd the term of years and applying the entire amount granted to territorial works exclusively. "On Tuesday evening the entire California delegation in the House were our guests at a dinner &t the New Willard hotel. The two Call fornia Senators were unable to be present because of previous engage ments. Congressman McLachlan of the River and Harbors Committee referred in very flattering terms to the work done by Hawaii before their Committee the last session, and Congressmen Smith, Hays and Kahn pointed out several precedents in Congressional action which were more radical than that asked for jtyflie present bill. All the members of the Hawaiian delegation feltlinfj&e affair was a very successful one. "On Thursday, I presenjed theffciLfgation tq, Chairman Payne of the Ways and Means Committee, who is the nominal leader of the Repub licans in the House. Mr. Payne, while receiving us, very courteously expressed his disapproval of our measure, taking the ground that Ha waii contains ample wealth and natural resources to make it advisable for her to get only the same treatment that is accorded the other states and territories. "On every hand suggestions are met with that either the percentage or term of years, or both, should be reduced. To this we have uniformly said that if any reduction must be made, we ask that it be made in the term of years and not in the percentage rate, although we shall make strenuous efforts tb have the bill reported without change as to either one. The fact that my bill calls for action differing from that extended to any other territory has always caused wide comment in both the House and the Senate. It is evident that while we shall have some strong support, there will also be much opposition to the measure. "If the Democratic leader attempts to gather the opposition against us, we shall try to have it made a party issue by the Republicans. But as Mr. Payne and some other Republican leaders do not favor the bill, there are obvious difficulties in having this done. For the present, our efforts are centered 011 securing a favorable report from the committee while still carrying on our general effort to extend its number of friends upon the floor."
