Ill II IT HIE Tl TARE OUR 8AY-80 Fill IMS: YOU I . mm tett nT Em wrm RSELF WILLIS' ACTS IN CONGRESS Hawaiian Affairs to Furnish the Chief Topic This Week in the Senate. IT IS THE PARAMOUNT SUBJECT Mr. Frye Will Try to Get His Resolu tion to a Vote Consternation of the Democratic Members Over the Po sition Which Mr. Cleveland's In structions to Mr. Willis and That Minister's Action in Honolulu Have Placed the Party Before the Country. Washington, Jan. 7. T CANNOT be recorded that the first week of (ha session of con gress after the holiday recess has marked auy sensible advance to wards the disposition of important matters pending before emigres, but it is expected by the party managers that the coming week will witness at least a beginning of the consideration of the tariff bill in the houe, and the bill to repeal the federal elections laws In the senate. It is expected that the subjsct of our Hawaiian relation will make its re appearance in the senate very prompt ly for the opportunity standi open in the shape of two resolutions which lie undisposed of on the vice president's table One of these is the i rye reso lution declaring; that there should be no interference by the UuitediStntes In Hawaii pending the conclusion of the investigation now being mad' by the senate committee on foreign rela tions, and it is expected that Mr. Frye, who is a member of the commit tee will hare some remarks to deliver ou this subject. BLOUNT AND HIS AUTHOUITV. The second rsolutiou is that intro duced by Mr. Hoar calling for a state ment of the expenditures made by Mr. Blount and the authority therefor. Mr. Frye intends to try an I force his resolution to a vote tomorrow. Sena tor Davis, of Minnesota, proposes to deliver a set speech on the Hawaiian situation during the week. While this senator is a nieinber of the committee on foreign relations, and consequently has snperior me.BB of information, it is understood that he will not avail himself of this opportunity in prepar ing his speech, b;-tug au lnsistant ad vocate for the preservation of commit tee room secrets. Congress will await with great inter est the receipt of the president's mes sage announcing the new phase of the Hawaiian situation, and the hope is expressed that the president will learn a lesson by his past experience and be more frank than heretofore, and nut bold back any of the instructions that were saut to Minister Willis, and the r plies received from him. It is well understood now that the so-called in structions communicated to congress in his message, were merely official skeletons, and that the minister all the timo was acting under secret orders, which, of course, will not appear in the published documents. MINISTER mUU' CONDUCT. The only explanation of Minister Willis' conduct since the message was read to congress that seems at all rea sonable is that he acted either under a misunderstanding of the latest instruc tions sent him or th tt his action was taken before the arrival of thoCorwtn nt Honolulu bearing dispatches to him announcing the fact that the president had referred the whole case to con gress. At the department even those who are sr Bevero in the criticism of Minister Willis as to suggest that his recall will follow this new development in the Hawaiian situation are inclined to believe that he will take no further steps and has taken none since calling upon the provisional government to re sign. In congress there is, of course, no hope for the president and the secre tary or stite. I heir policy will be condemned and repudiated promptly and effectively. As for Queen Liliou kalani it is thought that ahe will be justified in presenting a heavy claim for damages against the United States Representative Ruyner, of Maryland, who claims to have been selected by the president and Secretary Oresham to prepare and deliver an argumont in the house sustaining the administra tion's theory that Minister Stevens was the lender of the conspiraoy to over throw the queen, may have to revise his speech. RAYNER NOW AT SKA. He was proceeding under the impres sion that no action had been taken by the present administration, that is.that no overt act hud been committed by Minister Willis at the instance of the president and Secretary (Jresham. He was preparing himself to show that Minister Stevens had exceeded his au thority nu representative of theUnited States, but Mr. Rayner also intended that the policy of the present adminis tration should be to keep hands off and leave Hawaiians to adjust their own differences, Representative Otitbwaite, one of the leading Democrats in the home, by renson of his membership on the com mittee on rnles, expressed his regret that the administration had become in volved in this disagreeable business In his opinion th president might have saved himself and the country a great deal of unnecessary trouble had be bsen content to simply withdraw from the senate the proposed treaty of an nexation and recalled Minister Stevens. The latter might have been succeeded by a minister credited to the "Govern ment of Hawaii'' with instructions to patiently await until the people of the Hand wish islands settled among them selves the form of government they in tended to establish. The programme in the house this week is quite simple and distinct. As soon ns the Democrats present a voting qnornm the pending order for the consideration of the Wilson bill will be adopted and that measure will be the business bejore the house until it shall have been disposed of by a vote.
