ON AUG. IS THE STARS AND STRIPES
FLOAT OVER HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.
TUe Ceremony Is Quite Imposing
The Emotion of Many Who Were
Born and Had Lived Under the
Hawaiian Ensign Was Solemn
The Picture Presented Was Most
StrikingThe Military and Naval
Display Was FineMinister Sew
.nil Received the Islands on Be-
half of the United States.
San Francisco, Aug. 24.Precisely at
eight minutes to twelve o'clock to-day
the Hawaiian flag descended from the
flagstaffs on all the government build
ings and exactly at live minutes to the
same hour the Stars and Stripes
floated on the tropical breeze from ev
ery official flagstaff.
The ceremony of to-day was a soost
impressive one. To hear the strains of
"Hawaii poni" for the last time as a
national anthem to hear the bugle
blow taps as the Hawaiian ensign
sank from its position and to notice
the emotion of many who had beea
bcrn under it and had lived their lives
under it, was solemn.
But then came the bright call for the
raising of Old Glory and the strains of
"The Star-Spangled Banner" broke
forth as that banner was unfurled to
the breeze. Then the cheers broke
forth and eyes that had been dim for
a few minutes became bright and light
ened up when the Stars and Stripes
blew out. The picture presented in
and around the executive building was
most striking. In the grounds and
around all the approaches were crowds
of onlookers of every section of a
varied nationality. Notably remarka
ble was the number of Hawaiians.
within the grounds the military and
naval display was fine. Hawaiian
troops, United States marines, the
mounted patrol, the police and the citi
zens guard presented a splendid ap
pearance while the platform for the
exercises and the verandans of the ex
ocutho building were gay with bril
liant summer dresses, danring feathers
and ribbons and the brightest faces
that Honolulu possesses. As soon as
l'usident Dole and his cabinet came
fi oui the executive building to the plat
form, the justices of the supreme court
followed then Admiral J. S. Miller and
then United States Minister Harold
Sewall came down the steps followed
by Capt. Wadleigh of the Philadelphia
and Capt. Watkins of the Mohican and
their staffs and Col. Barber, of the
Fiist New York regiment. The pro
ceedings opened with prayer by Rev.
G. L. Peterson. United States Min
ister Sewall then rose and addressed
President Dole who had also risen and
presented him with a copy of the les
olution annexing the Hawaiian islands
the United States. President Dole ac
knowledged by presenting a copv of
the treaty making a political treaty of
union with the United States and
yielded to Minister Sewall in behalf
of the United States, the sovereignty
and property rights over Hawaii. Min
ister Sewall said:
"Mr. President, I acknowledge on be
half of the United States the reception
of sovereignity and property rights
over the Hawaiian islands. The
United States army and navy forces
in these islands will protest them."
Minister Sewall then read a proc
lamation stating that President Mc
Kialey directs that the civil, judicial
and military powers of the govern
ment shall continue to be exercised by
the officers of the icpublic of Hawaii.
All such officers will be required to
take an oath of allegiance to the
United States and renew their bonds
to the United States government. The
powers of the minister of foreign
affairs will cease so far as they relate
to diplomatic intercourse between
Hawaii and foreign nations. The
municipal legislation of Hawaii and
the customs regulations will practically
remain in force until the congress of
the United States shall otherwise de
Following the reading of the proc
lamation Minister Sewall made an ad
dress congratulating the residents of
Hawaii upon the accomplishment of

MOST CORDIAL GOOD WISHES.
Are Sent hy Spanish Soldiers to
Washington, Aug. 24.A document
entirely unique in the annals of war
fare was cabled to the war department
by Gen. Shatter. It is in the form of a
congratulatory farewell address issued
to the soldiers of the American army
by Pedro Lopez de Castillo, a private
Spanish soldier on behalf of the 11,000
Spanish soldiers. The president was
much impressed by the address an#
after reading it carefully authorized its
publication. Following is the text of
address as cabled by Gen. Shafter:
Santiago, Aug. 22, 1S0S.H. C. Corbm, Ad
jutant General, USA, Wash.ngton. The
following letter has just been received from
the soldiers now embarking fcr Spain.
"To Maj. Gen Shafter, Commanding the

Al=o the following letter, addtessLd to the
soldiers of the American army

GREAT ARRAY OF WARSHIPS.
Fortress Monroe Will Witness an In
Washington, Aug. 21. One of the
largest fleets of warships ever assem
bled in an American port will be
brought together within the next few
days at Fort Monroe. Already fifty
seven warships are under orders to
rendezvous there, and the orders still
to be issued will raise the total to the
neighborhood of seventy. Naval of
ficials say it is difficult to realize the
extent of such a marine aggregation in
one harbor. The orders began issuing
last Monday when five ships were or
dered to Fort Monroe. On the 16th an
other ship was added. On the 17th
eight more were sent and on the 18th
seventeen more ships were added. Yes
terday's orders include eighteen more
ships. Before the orders began issuing
there were eight warships at Fortress
Monroe, so that the total up to date is
fifty-seven. The movement of these
ships northward is due to the close of
hostilities, and more particularly to
the desire to get the ships away from
points of possible fever infection. They
will now be
Put in Thorough Repair
and their crews will be gradually
changed from naval militiamen to sail
ors of the regular navy. The navy de
partment has not yet determined what
ships will go to Havana, San Juan and
other points of Cuba and Porto Rico.
There is felt to be no hurry about this
until the authority of the United
States is fully established throughout
the islands. In the meantime the mat
ter of policing the shore points is be
ing considered and in due time a num
ber of the light-draft auxiliary craft
and some of the single turreted moni
tors will be used for this coast patrol.
It is found, however, that only four of
the old monitors of the Civil war are
fit for this service in Southern waters.
As many naval vessels will be centered
abfiut the West Indies from this time
forward the navy department will
send the new floating dock, recently
bought in New York, down the coast
to Fensacola, Fla., where it will be
kept for docking the warships. At
that point also there are good naval
workshops to be worked in conjunc
tion with the floating dock. The dock
is now being coppered and will be
towed to Pensacola as soon as the Sep
tember gales are over.
