I enclose a copy for your perusal. The apprehen sions of the admiral do not seem to have been shared by yon sufficiently to warrant your reportincr the petition for the retention of the Philadelphia, which was addressed to you, - as well as the naval commander, ana ic is trusted that your reported concurrence in that officer's views will be found due to some misapprension. i am, etc., (Signed) W.

Willis' reDlv to Mr. Gresham is dated at Honolulu, September 29, and reads as follows : "On the 5th day of Auzust I was informed hv thft aiimiral that he would leave with the Philadelphia on the bin. lie expressed some surprise at the change of plans of the Cham pion. In view of these facts he asked my opinion in regard to the detention of the Philadelphia. I replied that as the steamer Australia was uue nero August 11 at 8 a.m., which would probably bring correct advices as to tbe?harleston'a movements, I saw no reason, if not in conflict with his or riern f RJ4 tn th nature, of which I was not informed), why the Philadelphia should not wait until men. ween the Australia arrived I immediately nrttiflori thA admiral that no news warranting his further stay had been received, ue leit tne nexi morning. "The 'Petition of Citizens' referred to by the admiral, I did not receive until the day after our conversation. The conditions here for many months had been extremely orderly and peace ful. As stated by the petition itself, there was (no reason to doubt the nhflitv nf fhft Onwrnmpnt of the Re public of Hawaii to support and sus tain itself and furnish full protection . . A. ll I to tne lives ana property oi an resi dents in its territory.' "Tn thl9 oninlon even the enemie3 of the Government concurred. Fur thermore, on the day after receiving the petition, Mr. Hatch, the minister of fnretcm affairs, exnre&sed to me his regret that it had been sent, as those a a a. x a. ne represented weicomea tne opportu nity to prove to the world that they were able to take care of themselves. "These I deemed sufficient reasons Yor noi X forwarding the petition. Albert S. Willis." MAY'S $1000 CHECK. The Patriotic Spirit Which Prompt ed It is Appreciated.

The re aolution heretofore introduced by 2Ir. Lodge calling on Secretary Her bert to inform the senate why all ships of war hare been withdrawn from the Hawaiian Islands, waa laid before the senate and Mr. Iodge ad dressed the senate. "At the beginning of the session," said he, "I introduced a resolution asking for the reports and corres pondence of Admiral Walker in re gard to Hawaii. My motire in so UNITED 8TATE8 SENATOB TTKKRY CABOT LODGE. ' ; doing was because I ; beIieTed the opinions and observations of a dis tinguished and able naval officer who is necessarily ontside of all rjolitics would be of great value to us in un derstanding the condition of affairs and therein reaching a proper knowl' edge of our relations with those isl ands. "Admiral Walker's papers were, as I had anticipated, most valuable on these points. They showed that to a disinterested observer actuated by no motive but the interests of the United States, it was perfectly clear that our true policy was the annexa tion of those islands. "They confirmed in this way the view by the senate in their resolut ions of last sammer and which I believe are the views held by sub stantially all the American people except those concerned in the pres ent administration. TSX BXrUBLIC BXST. "These papers also showed that the present Government in Hawaii was the best; that it had deserved to succeed; that the constitution had been peaceably established and that the only thing which prevented its general acceptance by the natives was the fear on their part of a coant er or royalist revolution. "All this was valuable information, but Admiral Walker's last letter brought out strongly a highlj im portant point, which has thus far not been appreciated. - It was known to us through the press that all our war ships had been withdrawn from Hawaii and that, although several were lying idle at Mare Island, none had been sent back to Honolulu. "The letter of Admiral Walker, to which I have referred, discloses in a striking way the danger and impolicy of this course, and also proves that our government had been warned in regard to it by an officer entitled to speak on such a point with the auth ority of an expert. "Admiral Walker says with great frankness that if the British men-of-war, as well as our own, had been withdrawn, it might have been a good thing certainly it would have done no harm to the stability of government in the islands. But it appears that at the moment when it was knon that our vessel was to be taken away, the British orders were changed and H. M. S. Champion, which has subsequently been re placed by the Hyacinth, was ordered to remain at Honolulu. "It is not necessary to impute any improper motive to Great Britain or her representatives for this action, or even to suppose that it has been the intention of Great Britain to seize Hawaii; but it must not be forgotten that while our government hastens to recall a man like Mr. Stevens, who is earnest in the promotion of Amer ican interests, Great Britain takes pains to uphold her representative for his devotion to British interests."

The morning session of the Military Commission was devoted entirely, to the arguments of the counsel for the defense and the Judge-Advocate In the cases of Gullck, Seward, Rickard and Walker. - : : ' .": The speech of Mr. Neumann though a strong one lacked the fire that char acterized his defense of the youns men who appeared at the , opening session of the court martial. Captain Kinney spoke as one with authority whose every utterance was mended upon unquestionable, nnfurmount able facts. ' In his opening remarks Mr. Neu mann stated that he would offer no testimony in behalf of the accused, but would present a statement made by Mr. Gullck. He stated that he wculd not consume much time, and referred to the wild talk of an even ing journal favoring hurried action. and as he looked upon it an ill-advised Alt.

Attentionwas first called to the In dignation which had been expressed throughout the community when the fact that bombs were to be used by the rebels first came to notice. He held that dynamite was a legitimate weapon of warfare when legitimately " -W-. . . . . . M .. . . Wilcox and his men from the bunga low in the attempted overthrow of 1SS9, and the use of bombs la cecerai warfare or tims of siege was, not con sidered a crime or inhuman. The counsel believed the sentiment against this feature was born rather of timid ity than anything else. He stated that the statement of Mr. Gullck con tained a concise account of h!s con nection with the affair, and that Mr. Gullck was not irulUyot any crime within the jurisdiction of ttto Mili tary Commission to bring him to ac count. 'The evidence is insufficient to convict him of the crime for which he stands before you." Mr. Nermann held that Gullck had no more connec tion with the affair than he liimself might be called upon as a lawyer to rlr thA foot tHt. fJiiHfe- irrtA mmmww .' .. mmmt a. . ... I included In the proposed Cabinet not being sufficient to bring htm un der the bane of a treasonable act. The counsel referred frequently to ''General" Nowlefn and the otter and complete imbecility of his. plan of action. He hoped the men on trial had no hand in the rebellion; It they did it reflected upon their intelligence and sanity; it was the- voret planned affair he had ever known. u2fo sane white man would give the advice the accused were purported to haw offer ed. The Court should call to mind that the promise of w-e'e akin might have much, to do with Kow lein's statements. What the Gen. eral" wanted of a whole skin he could not make out unless that after his de mise it should be stuffed and placed on exhibition in the Bishop Museum. After making a very pretty tribute to the treatment the counsel for the defense had received at the hands of the Judge-Advocate, Mr. Neumann anticipated a point which he thought would be made by the prosecution. He pre-supposed that the Judge-Advocate would state - that it was the white man,who led the native on, that the court was after. What means had the court of knowing that the na tive Hawaiian was misguided? In many houses the question ot the tak ing the government from the natives had been discussed and no govern ment had a right to force an opinion upon any man. Why is the while man who thinks this government has been wrongfully taken from the na tives more culpable than the man of dark skin? I denounce any attempt to Invoke vengeance or to make a dis tinction In race or color. Mr. Neumann closed his remarks with a special plea for Mr. Gulick, "against whom no testimony has been brought, except you take in toto the testimony of General1 Nowlein." Mr GULiCK
