LOS ANGELES: SUNDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 26, 1893. FROM WASHINGTON. An Extra Session of Congress Called. The Annexation of Hawaii Be comes Less Probable. The Gold Reserve to Be Maintained by Boudß. # Morgan, B-rexel & Co. Beady to Pur chase the Bonds—Political Gossip from the Nation's Capital. By tbe Associated Press. Washington, Feb. 25.—The president haß ißiued a proclamation canvening an extra session of the senate March 4th. The supposed purpose is to make sure of action on the Hawaiian treaty. Ac tion was probably taken at the instance of, or with the consent of, President elect Cleveland. THE PROCLAMATION. I, Benjamin Harrison, president of the United States, do hereby proclaim and declare that extraordinary occasion requires the senate of the United States to convene at the capital, In the city of Washington, on the 4th of March next, at 12 o'clock noon, of which all persons who shall at that time be entitled to act aa members of that body are hereby required to take notice. IN THE SENATE. Washington, Feb. 26. —The legislative appropriation bill waa taken up after being amended, but no important par ticular passed. Mr. Dawes moved the senate to iusiet on its amendments and ask a conference. The motion wae agreed to, and confereea on the part of the senate appointed. Sherman moved to proceed to executive business. Gor man thought the senate should rather go on with it« legislative work, and he called for the yeas and naya on Sher man's motion. Tbe motion was defeat ed —yeas, 21; nayß, 20. After paying a tribute to the memory of the late Representative Spinola of New York, the senate adjourned. HOUSE PROCEEDINGS. Washington, Feb. 25. —A fight, which may next week prove to be a eerioua one, was inaugurated in the house today. It was over the sundry civil appropria tion, which containß the Sherman bond amendment. There are in all 207 amend nentß to the bill. Holman desired that all except the Sherman amendment, upon which there ia to be debate, be -">n-concurred in. Mr. Bland, as the leader of the oppo sition to the Sherman amendment, objected, unleaa it be agreed that the amendment should be after debate also non-concurred in. This suggestion of Bland's raised tbe antagonism of Coch ran, and no agreement was arrived at. The silver men then resorted to filibus tering tactics, which were effectual, and after a speech the Bland bill went over without action. After some farther debate the commit tee rose, and, public bußinesß having been suspended, the house proceeded to pay a tribute of respect to the memory of the late Senator John Barbour of Virginia, and then adjourned. KNOCKED OUT. The Hawaiian Treaty Dead for the'Tlme Being. Washington, Feb. 25. —The Hawaiian treaty is thought to be dead for this ses sion. Thia is reluctantly conceded even by friends. The action of the senate to day in refusing to go into executive ses sion, thaugh the action doubtless had some reference to the Hanchette circuit judge nomination, is aloo accepted as a conclusive indication that the treaty would be shelved for the balance of the session. The treaty matter can of course be taken up in the extra session which will convene immediately after the present congress dies, but unless some marked change occurs there is believed to be no prospect of action upon it dur ing the life of tne present administra tion. Possibly the knowledge of its dis position on the part of tbe Benate has some reflex influence on the action of tbe house. There wae to have been a meeting of the waye and meana committee of the hotiße today to consider the Springer resolution, hut it did not take place. One of the Republican committeemen eaid hie colleagues united against the resolution. He concluded the resolution would be permitted to fall to the ground. The Democratic members of the com mittee are still examining the subject, but it does not seem likely that the resolution will be pushed. THE GOLD RESERVE. Bonds All Beady for Issue nod a Pur- Chaser Found. Washington, Feb. 25. —Secretary of the Treasury Foster was before the ways and means committee of the house this morning, explaining the condition of tbe treasury. He eaid there was no occaßiau for fear that the treasury would be bank rupted, but admitted that the situation demanded serious consideration. He believed the available cash In the treas ury at the close of the fiscal year would be only $17,000,000 instead of $20,000, --000, aa he had eatimated in hia report, becauee he had not taken into consid eration tbe payment of the Choctaw claim of $3,000,000. On the present basis of revenue ho ea timated that there would be a deficit in the treasury at the end of the fiscal year of 1894. He believed $50,000,000 more revenue should be raised, but did not say wheth er by taxation or by the issue of bonds. He also thoueht the gold reserve should be raised to $125,000,0G0. BONDS READY FOR ISSUE. Washington, Feb. 26.—1t is stated on reliable authority that Secretary of the Treasury Foster has bonds ready for im mediate issue, and tbat he has con tracted with Drexel, Morgan & Co. to take (25,000,000 of them and pay for them in gold whenever it is necessary to keep the gold reserve intact. This action ia understood to bave been taken after consultation incoming Treas urer Carlisle. Ft.AO3 AND CLOTHING. The Hawaiian Provisional Government Orders Supplies. Columbus, 0., Feb, 25.—A firm in this city has received an order from tbe pro visional government of Hawaii for mili tary clothing in all respects like that of fatigue uniforms in the United Stateß army, to be shipped by steamer from San Francisco March 14th, for the use of tbe national quern. The order is eigned by John H. Soper, colonel com manding N. G. H. The army consists of 494 men.

Over thia shield ia the word "Hawaii" and the date of the revolution, January 17, 1893. THK DEAD HAGKATI. Services Over the Remains of the Late Allen Manvel.

An Address to Irishmen.. New York, Feb. 25.—The National League of America tonight issued an address to Irishman. It was eigned by tbe president, secretary and treasurer. It ia in part as followB: Irishmen are inclined to congratulate themselves on the seeming beginning of an era of liberty, peace and prosperity for Ireland. Home rule for Ireland un doubtedly sounds well, but Irishmen should ponder before arriving at con clusions and not allow mere sound to sot their sympathies above their reason. This measure cannot be accepted as a full and complete settlement of the claims of the people, and we have no hesitation in declaring that, instead of a of a blessing, it would prove a curae to our country. It ia absolutely unworthy of the traditiona and wanta of the people. Cleveland's Gtionts. Lakewood, N. J., Feb. 25.—Hon. John G. Carlisle arrived from Washing ton today. He was met at the station by Mrs. Cleveland and driven to the cottage, where he found tha president elect and Judge Greaham awaiting him. A conference waa held which lasted until 3 o'clock.
