'file New Mexico statehood bill then cornea up and ia expected to pass tomor row on Tuesday if the Democrats can maintain a quorum. The president's Hawaiian message is likely to provoke debate. It is stated on the highest authority that the msa sage will show that the administration libb done all in its power to right the wrong done the Hawaiian monarchy, and the situation must now be dealt with by congress; it will Bhow that the president and Greaham have been in tompte c accord from the Bret. The programme in the aenate tomor row includea the reception of the Hawaiian message and debate, whicb will occupy the balance of the week.

Washington, Dec. 17. —The house committee on banking and currency has received a large number of repheß to the invitation of suggestions from business men as to tbe wisest monetary legislation to meet the present demands Ex-Senator Charlea B. Farwell of Chi cago writes: "The government ought long ago to have gone out of the cur rency business. It should pay the floating debt at once by irsuiug long low rate bonds to be used by national banks, at face value, as the basis of cir culating notes." The clearing house association of Seattle, through H. W. Wheeler, presi dent, of the Commercial bank, and J. M. Elliott, president of the First Na tional bank of Los Angeles, offer sug gestions aa to tbe amendment of the national banking laws. Tho chamber of commerce of San Francisco afiirmß tbe advantages of bi metallism ou a proper differential basis iv the value of silver and gold, and adopt.-:.the following resolutions, which are tran"inittcd to the committee: Rer.oived, That this chamber respect-" fully utges npon congress the enactment oi i>. law calling in all paper circulation bi low the denomination of $10, nnd that the coiunge of gold be restricted to coins of not less than J!0, aa the moat effective and prompt methods of promot ing the circulation of Bilver among our Ii also recommends changing the na tional -banks act so that it will permit note circulation equal to the par value of tne government bonds hypothecated to aecuie auch circulation. STATEHOOD BILLS. Seme Dnubta an to All >,f Them Becom ing I.tiw*. " ss'hinciton, Dec. 17 —The senate oommittee on territories wil! probably not take up the statehood bills from the house bt:' re the holiday recess, at least ntft for tinal action. The Committee, generally, is favorable to the bills, but there are nlnioet sure to be disagree ments', on minor points. There will be comparatively Utile opposition among the Republican members of the com mittee, while the Democrats are solid in favorof ihe admission of ail the terri tories. It is probable that a bill for the admiseion of OkUhoma will he at tacbed to the otiier bills. The Repub licans may demand this, believing there are bel ter chatice of Republican success in Oklahoma tiian iv the other uew fdaiea. There will be some opposition iv the committee to New Mexico on the ground of the character of the majority of the population. It is quite certain the effort will be revived to join Novada with Utah, and it may prove a knotty question in connection with Utah's ad mission. It is understood the president has been considering the prospect that the admission of iour new elates would sent e : ght silver senators, und fears are already expieseed that he may Teto one or more of the bills.

New Yobk, Dec. 17.—1t ia probable tbat the only copy of the original con stitution of Hawaii is in the possession of Prof. W. H. B. Thomas of Philadel phia. Inasmuch aa some Hawaiian documents aeem to sustain the position taken by President Cleveland in the Sandwich islands controveray, Prof. Thomas ib about to offer transcripts of the original to tbe United States gov ernment. The document was printed for the benefit of the natives nearly half a century ago in the Hawaiian language and afterward translated into English, but copies have never been published in thia country. The declaration of righta, both of the people and their chiefs, aa the Hawaiian constitution ia called, waa originally drawn up hy a graduate of the seminary at Lnhaialuna. Thia declaration wae afterward revised by the king and coun cil of three chiefs. The constitution shows the missionary training of the Hawaiian people, and there certainly is no reason for tbe objection that God iB not recognized, for the declaration starts off with a scriptural text and is ex tremely pious and biblical throughout. The portion calculated to sustain Presi dent Cleveland in bis Hawaiian policy ie preatimably that which recitea tbe royal line from thu firat to the tbird Kamahameha, and then aaye: "The kingdom ia permanently confined to Kamahameha 111 and his heira, and his heir shall be the person whom he and the chiefs shall appoint during his life time, but should there be no ap pointment then the decision shall rest with the chiefs snd the house of repre sentatives." This constitution was signed October 8, 1810, at Honolulu, by King Kama hameha 111 and his prime minister. THE PARAMOUNT ISSUE. SILVER IN THE NEXT CONGRES SIONAL campaign.
