A LKTTKK FKOM MINI9TEIC HATCH. The Policy of the Government Is for a Closer Political Union With the United States None Bnt Hawaiian Will Be Allowed to Participate. The idea of annexation is fast becoming fixed in the minus and hearts of the native Hawaiians. Not only are they giving assent to the project by words dropped here and there, but meetings are being held for the purpose of con sidering all matters relative thereto and of farthering, in so far as they are able, what they believe to be the right thing for Hawaii. The man who stands out most prominent in the work of promot ing the idea of annexation among the Hawaiians is John F. Colburn, a half-white who was born and brought up in this country. The idea occurred to him that if a soci ety, having for its aim the idea of annexation, could be once formed among the native Hawaiians, its success would be assured. With this thought in mind he went to work and talked freely with a few whom he knew to be interested in the project. This led to a meeting which was held on the oth lnst. and at which quite a number were present. It was the opiqion of the meet ing that the Government should be addressed in order that an idea of the mode of procedure for the future could be gained, and a good working foundation formed. For this purpese a committee of six was appointed to draw up a letter to the Government, asking for its : v views on the new movement. Fol lowing is a , copy jof the letter writ ten by the committee : Sis Excellency Sanford B. Dole, jrre&iaens itepuDiio or Hawaii. iocs Exceixewcy: -The under signed, a committee appointed at a meeting held this day to discuss the question of annexation of the islands to the United States of America, and m m m . empowered oy saia meeting to cor respond with tne Government and to propound thereto the following ques- ons: Will the Government allow the nizationof apolitical club to be ed the Hawaiian Annexation League having a constitution and by- laws not contrary to law 7 2. will the Government allow the formation of the clubs throughout mese lsianus wnue martial law exists? 3. AVill the Government state its status as to annexation? We submit for your Inspection the minutes oi an iniormal meeting as well as a preamble submitted for our consideration and action. We have the honor to be, Messrs.'J. P. Colburn, C. I. Hopkius, I Enoch Johnson.I J. H. Kahookano, J. M. Poepoe. I l Committee. . Last night another meetin? was neia at Antone Kosa'a office with tit ... . ; J. F. Colburn as chairman. There were nine persons present. The main object of the meeting was the reaamg oi toe letter sent to the Government and the reolv thereto wnicn is given oeiow : i . . . JJl-rAKIMKNT OF Jf OREIQNAFFAlRS, 1 Honolulu, Feb. 6, 1895.

Such clubs, however, must be public in character, and all meetings open to such as choose to attend. While martial law is in force on the Island of Oahu, notice of the intended time and place of each meeting must be given to the Marshal, who has authority to forbid the same. The policy of the Executive In re card to political union with the United States is to carry out the power conferred by Article 32 of the Consti tution at the earliest opportunity. Respectfully yours, (Signed.) Francis M. Hatch, Minister of Foreign Affairs. The report of the committee, which consisted in tne reading of the two letters already eiven. was adopted by the meeting, after whictt Mr. Colburn made a few remark?: This meetiug has been called together for the purpose of present ing to you the letters already read and approved by you. I have in structed the MarBhal of this meet- ing, as was requeetea in the answer of the Government, and have gained xnra from him tLe uerriiicsion to hold such here tonight. "There is one thought that I wish to lay before yon tonight which seems to me to be paramount in the existence of this organiza tirm as diatinctlv Hawaiian. We must allow none but native Ha waiiana and those of other nation alities who have married native wives to belong to our league. While we entertain the kindest of feelinca toward others, and want them to ,come to our meetings whenever they wish, still it seems to me we must make a discrimina tion if this league is to be distinctly Hawaiian." A motion to adjourn was carried, and those present were asked to speak to tbeir friends and ask them to be present at a meeting which is to be held Monday even ing at 7 :30 in Arion hall. TO COMMEHCEWORK AT OflCE, The Contract for Building Y M. C. A. Gymnasium Awarded. Local Brothers Were the Lowest Bid dersMartial Law Interferes With tho Work of the Association. At the monthly meeting of the Y. M. C. A., held last night, the bids for constructing the addition to the building were opened. They were as follows: Lucas Brothers, $14,099 ; William Wagner, $16,400 ; Arthur Harrison, $16,433; Dall & Co., $16,568. The contract was awarded to Lucas Brothers, who will be or dered to commence work as soon as possible. Treasurer Jones read the report for January. The receipts were $566.76 ; expenditures, $550.49. The following report was read by Secretary Corbett : Commencing with the New Year the usual open house and evening en tertainment was held for the young men of the city. Through the aid of the ladles of the W. C. T. U. and Ye, a dinner was served to the young" men, at which about 200 partook. We are glad to be able to report that a larger number of sailors participated this year than formerly. The evening con cert was a decided success, the audi ence room being filled to its utmost capacity. The religious work has been smaller during tne past month than any former one for a lone time, thii on. account of the revolution. Until martial law is off the meetings ara likely to be smaller. The work at the jail has been prohibited for the,pfes- ent oy oraers or tne u a renal. The plans for the addition to our work in shape of class rooms and gym nasium have been completed by our friends,' Messrs. Ripley and Reynolds, and we trust to be able to commence the work at an early date. The quar terly issue of the' Review has been re tarded through waiting for the gym na8ium scheme to materialize and also through the tardiness of the print ing office. It is now out, however. The temperance committee have been unable to meet : we must all have no ticed tne beneficial effect the martial law has had on the line of temper- ance. In view that the legislature will soon convene It would seem a wise time to try and see what can be done in the temperance issue. The finances of the association are in a healthy condition, and a likelihood of the fis cal year being closed free of debt as far as current expenses are concerned. It is computed that the sum of about $3,000 will be needed to complete the gymnasium iuna. livery friend of the association is asked to trv and CO CD ft- rate in this movement, both by per sonal suDscripuon ana tne effort to secure other subscribers, so that the wotk. may go rorward. W. W. Hall, for the devotional committee, reported that nine meet- intra hori hosn vaI4 -.-.; iLa ings had been held during the month. Mr. Lowrey, for the temperance committee, reported that Rev. H.
