RATIFICATION UNCERTAIN. Mo Chance for Immediate Annexation of Hawaii. Washington, June 19. Opposition to the 'Hawaiian annexation project has broken out much more violently than was anticipated by the adminis tration, and the treaty will be roughly handled when it comes up in the Sen ate for ratification. Whether this oppo sition will be able to muster sufficient strength in that body to defeat rati fication is a speculative problem. It looks now as though the annexation party might not be able to command the necessary two-thirds vote. In any event, it is now taken for granted that favorable action at this special session, either in the form of treaty ratification or legislation sus taining the administration plaus, will be impossible.

I ANNEXATION TREATY BE FORE THE SENATE. Japan Has Filed a rrotost Treaty Cedes the Hawaiian Islands Practic ally Without Conditions to the United States President1 f singe. WASinxaT .V. Hawaii has again formal' K) be annexed to tho United States, and the fate of tho littlo Republic now rests with the Senate. The treaty outlining the an nexation project was signed by Secre- j tury of State Sherman and Hawaiian representatives yesterday, and before supper time President McKinley had transmitted the document with his message to tho Senate. The com munication reached the Senate cham ber at 5 o'clock. Before the final signature of the document the secretary of state re ceived a formal protest from the Jap anese government, through its lega tion here, against the consummation of the agreement. The protest is understood to be based on apprehen sion that the special treaties now ex isting between Japan and Hawaii, under which the Japanese enjoy ad vantages, will be affected injuriously by complete annexation. Tho Senate at once went into ex ecutive session, and as soon as the doors were closed the inessago of President McKinley accompanying tho treaty and the treaty itself were read to the Senate. They were attentively listened to. In one part of the cham ber there was a group of Senators who will bitterly oppose the ratification of the treaty. Among them were hen ators Gray, Mills, Pasco, White, Caff ery Pet.tigrew and McEnery. The message of tho President was not a very long document. It dealt with historical facts concerning the island and showed that the United States and Hawaii yearly grew more closely bound to each other. This was not really annexation, he said, but a continuation of existing rela tions with closer bonds between peo ple closely related by blood and kin dred ties. The annexation of the islands, said the President, and making them a part of the United States was in accordance with the es tablished policy of this country. . The treaty proved to bo a simple documentor six articles, based in its essential details upon the treaty nego tiated by the Hon. John W. Foster during the administration of President Harrison. The islands are ceded prac tically without conditions, leaving the United States to pursue its own course with reference to their management The first article reads as follows: 'The government of the Hawaiian islands hereby cedes, from the date of tho exchange of the ratifications of this treaty, absolute and without re serve to the United States forever all rights of sovereignty of whatsoever kind in and over the Hawaiian islands and their dependencies, renouncing in favor of the United States every sov ereign right of which, as an independ ent nation, it is now possessed; and, henceforth, said Hawaiian islands shall become and be an integral part of the territory of the United States." The Hawaiian government cedes to the United States the absolute owner ship of all tho public lands, publio buildings, ports, harbors, fortifica tions, military and naval equipments and all other government property. It is specifically provided, however, that tho existing land laws of the United States shall not apply to the public lands of Hawaii, but that spe cial laws shall be made from time to time for thi-lr disposition, the pro jeeds of any sales of these lands to bo applied to educational purposes in the islands. The islands are for the present to constitute a territory of the United States, tfteir local laws remaining in force until new ones are enacted. A local legislature is provided for, but the veto power is vested entirely in the President of tho United States. A commission of five persons, con sisting of three Americans and two Hawaiians, to be nominated by the President and confirmed by tho Sen ate, is provided for the purpose of formulating the mode of government for the islands. The five commissioners provided for in the treaty are expected to make recommendations to Congress as to new laws, and also as regards the form of government The present form of local government is to continue in the islands for the present, except that the President of the United States is to have immediate veto power over the acts of the Hawaiian legislative as sembly. The treaties of the United States with other countries are substituted for the -treaties of Hawaii with the same countries in the coutro.ling in ternational relations with the island. Further immigration of Chinese la borers to the islands is prohibited and the laws restricting Chinese immigra tion to the United States are made to apply to the prevention of Chinese re moving from Hawaii to this country. This country agrees to assume the debt of the island republic to the ex lent of 84.000.000. No mention is made of any gratuity to ex-Queen Liliuokalani. Young- Farmer Accused. Sedalia, Mo., June 19.

Tho tariff bill eamo to a halt in the Senate yes terday, less than ono pagu of the flax schedule being disposed of The de bate drifted into political channels, Senators Bacon, Vest, Jones of Arkan sas and Tillman taking part in an ex position of Democratic doctrine on the tariff. It led to severul lively ex changes, during which tho cleaning of political "dirty linen'1 was frequently referred to. Mr. Tillman's remarks wero made with his characteristic vehemence, and at one point he frank ly stated concerning the tariff that if there was to be stealing, he wanted his share for South Carolina. Late in tho day, Mr. Morgan proposed a sweeping amendment to placo a 10 per cent ad valorem duty on all articles now on the froa list, with a few stated exceptions.

Washington, June 18. The Senate made greater progress yesterday on the tariff bill than on any other day since the debate opened.

The other provisions of the schedule relate to maple sugar, maple syrup, candy, etc. Only ono yea and nay vote was taken during the day, on the amend ment of Mr. Lindsay of Kentucky, to make the rate l.S cents per pound on sugar above No. 10 Dutch standard The amendment was defeated 33 to 35. The Peltigrew amendment relatiug to trusts was then taken up and dis cussed at length. It developed consid erable divergence of view on both sides of the chamber, the two Ala bama senators, Messrs- Morgan and Pettus, joining Mr. Hoar in opposi tion. Mr. Allison finally tested the sense of the Senate by movinir to table the amendment, which motion pre vailed yea.-.. 35; nays, 32 two Demo crats, Morgan and McEnery, voting with the Republicans to table, and thus turning the scale against the amendment.
