HATTAIIAy QUESTION A LIVE ISSUE.
A Tribute to Charles L. Carter CI er

lug The Attitude of Englaad Theo.
n. Davles Is Grlered By the News.
Washdjgtok, Jan. 24 Another chap
ter to the Hawaiian question was added
today, Allen of Nebraska presenting a
resolution for annexation, and George of
Mississippi making a speech supporting
the administration's policy. Pritchard
of North Carolina was sworn in during
the day. The session closed with the
rapid passage of twenty-one pension
bUIs.
When the Senate was called to order,
Mitchell of Oregon sought to secure the
passage of a resolution calling on the
Treasury Department for detailed infor
mation as to sugar bounty claims, but
objection was made and the resolution
went over.
Allen of Nebraska presented another
Hawaiian resolution as follows :
"Resolved, that it is the sense of the
Senate that the revolutionary govern
ment having now become the establish
ed government of the Hawaiian Islands,
a wise and enlightened foreign policy re
quires that steps should be taken by this
government without unnecessary delay
to annex those islands to the United
States as a part thereof, and that in the
meantime the personal and property
rights of American' citizens in those isl
ands should be protected by the pres
ence of a sufficient naval force in Ha
waiian waters."
The resolution went over until tomor
row. The Hawaiian resolution of Lodge was
then taken up, and George of Mississip
pi addressed the Senate in support of the
administration's ' policy. He Aade a
careful legal argument to show that
there was no popular sufirage and no
real republican form of government in
Hawaii.. George presented a table
showing the number of days United
States warships had not been at Hono
lulu during the last twenty yesrs. It
shows that United States ships have
been there very little of the time during
the last twenty years.
CleTeland' Queer Policy.
Washington, Jan. 21. The Star of
this city thinks that "the present policy
of the President is the plan of Spreckels,
and that Cleveland adopted it while yet
president-elect, and before Walter Q.
Gresham was ever thought of being
called to the cabinet. President Cleve
land is still playins; the independent
man, and strong efforts are being made
to show that the President did not change
front simply because Congress so severe
ly criticised him. It is said that one
reason why the President changed his
mind so suddenly and determined to
send a war ship to Honolulu was because
he was informed by his supporters in
Congress that strong action was in the
minds of both houses, and that in order
to prevent an open rupture it would be
best to send a vessel to the islands as
soon as possible, and that such a course
would possibly modify the attacks that
would undoubtedly take place.
"Not alone are the natives in the con
spiracy, but the British authorities seem
to be in svmpathy with the ex-queen,
and it is reported here that they went so
far as to assure the royalists that they
would recognize the revolution if they
could eeize and hold the government house
for three hours. President Cleveland's
action in the matter led the royalists to
believe that the United States was in
sympathy with them, and that he would
probably recognize the Queen if they
succeeded in restoring her, and because
of . this belief the overthrow was at
tempted." Condemns Cleveland's Policy.
Ixdianapous, Jan. 22. Representa
tive Statesman this morning offered a
resolution condemning the foreign policy
of the National Administration and
favoring the anneaa ion of the Hawaiian
Islands under the terms of the treaty
adopted bv the Harrison administration.
He foliOw".l the reso ution with a caustic
review of Cleveland's policy. A motion
to lay the resolution on the table was
voted down and the resolution was.
adopted by a vote of 79 to 15, all of the
Democrats present voting against it.
Grieved ly the ew.
Londos, Jan 22. Theo. H. Davie,
who accompanied the Hawaiian Princess
Kaiulani to the United States o protest
against the overthrow of the Hawaiian
throne, wa3 askrd today about Uj recent
attempt to restore tLe monarchy. He
said :
"I cannot make any statement. The
time n past for this. I m deeply
grieved bv the last news from the Ha
waiian Islands, and especially at the
death of 31 r. Carter, for whom I person
ally had a warm regard "
As Mr. Davies is the guardian of Prin
cess Kaiulani. his remarks may be taken
as evidence that the young woman has
abandoned any idea of further claiming
her rights. The Princess, through Mr.
Davies, declines to speak.
Attitude of England.
Losdojt, Jan. 22. It is officially stated
that the British Consular agent at Ha
waii is maintaining an absolutely neutral
attitude, and it is added that there is no
foundation for the report that the Royal
ists, when they rebelled early this month,
were assured by him that if they held
the palace for three hours Great Britain
would recognize them as the Govern
ment. Tribute to Carter.
WASHixaTOJ?, Jan. 23. In the House,
however, today, the recent revolt was
again the cause of a little excitement
when Pickler, of South Dakota, taking
advantage of the wide latitude allowed
for debate when in committtee of the
whole under the five-minute rule, ad
dressed the chair on the sundry civil bill
and paid an eloquent tribute to the mem
ory of Charles L. Carter, the young man
who met his death while fighting for free
government. The Republicans ap
plauded Pickler earnestly, whereat the
Democrats joined in the racket, their
demonstration, however, being intended
in the nature of irony.
THE HEED OFAHAVAL STATION,
Necessary to Give the United States
Command of the Pacific.
Appropriations Asked For to Make Pearl
Harbor Suitable for a Station
Money for the Cable.
Washington, Jan. 24. Complying
with a resolution of the Senate the Act
ing Secretary of the Navy today sent in
reports of a preliminary survey of Pearl
Harbor, commenced last April by Rear
Admiral Irwin, and completed by Rear
Admiral Walker, who succeeded him.
Rear-Admiral Irwin submits that the
acquirement of a naval station in the
Hawaiian Islands would give this Gov
ernment the command of the Pacific.
Not simply a coaling station, but a navy
yard is needed, and the positions com
manding the bar at Pearl Harbor should
be strongly fortified and a perfect torpedo
system completed.--The rear-admiral
submits a report made by lieutenant
Adams, who says that in his opinion,
from the experience in boring and sound
ing on Pearl Harbor, a dredge could
clear a channel through the bar, giving a
depth of thirty-one feet at low water
without any great difficulty. The latter
thinks the previous estimated cost of
opening channels have been too great.
Rear-Admiral Walker, in his report to
the department, dated June 21st, last,
says a examination showed conclusively
that there is a channel through the xeef
at Pearl Harbor filled with loose coral
and a suction dredger can rapidly and
cheaply open a way for the largest ships.
The channel is practically straight, and
the distance between the walls of live
coral is at no point less than 300 feet.
The rear-admiral promised a further and
detailed report.
Accompanying this report is a esti
mate made by Lieutenant W. M. Wood,
submitting a total of $105,000 as neces
sary to make a cut 250 feet wide through
the bar with a depth of thirty feet and
to widen and deepen the channel inside
to thirty feet, and of $85,000 if the cut in
the bar is 200 feet wide.
MONEY FOR DREDGING.
Washington, Jan. 23. The Senate
Committee on Foreign Relations today
authorized a favorable report on Sena
tor Morgan's amendment to the naval
appropriation bill, making an appropria
tion of $110,000 for dredging the Pearl
Harbor bar.
There was an informal discussion of
the project for the amendment of our
treaty with Hawaii so as to permit the
landing of a cable to be built by a British
company on one of the Hawaiian Islands,
but the matter did not appear to com
mend itself to any of the members of the
committee. Senator White, in keeping
with the policy of the Administration,
expresses the opinion that the proposed
Hawaiian cable will not be built by the
United 8tates Government.
CAB LB FOR HAWAII.
Washington, Jan. 23 Hale offered
an amendment to the Diplomatic and
Consular bill in the Senate today provid
ing $500,000 for the survey of a cable
route connecting the Hawaiian Islands
with the United States.
Washington, Jan. 23. The Hawaiian
question was not debated in the Senate
today, bnt Senator Hale gave notice of
an amendment which he proposes to
offer to the Diplomatic and Consular
appropriation bill appropriating $500,
000 toward the construction of a tele
graph cable between the United States
and the Hawaiian Islands. This amend
ment, when it is reached, will probably
cause another discussion of Hawaiian
affairs.
1 SI I
Strange Natives Seen.
At about half-past eight o'clock
last night Thomas Nott reported
to Deputy-Marshal Brown that
while driviogdown Nuuanu valley
with some of his family a little
while previous he was met by half
a dozen strange natives near the
end of the tram line. The men
came close to the carriage but
made no attempt at violence.

THE RECALL OF THE WARSIXIP3.
Senator Lodfe latlmates That It TTas
Done at the Imstaaee of the Royalist
Deler-tes Attack Admiral Walker
and Called Down Three Resolutions.
Washington, Jan. 21. Minister
Thurston of Hawaii occupied a front seat
in the diplomatic gallery of the Senate
when the session opened today . '
Lodge speedily brought forward the
Hawaiian question by presenting the
following resolutions :
"Resolved, that the Senate heartily
approves the dispatch of a war ship to
the Sandwich Islands on Saturday last
and is of the opinion that an American
m nn-nf v nhrmldf Vftttf of. TTn "Jnln
"Resolved, ' that prompt measures
should be taken to constrsct or causa
the construction of a submarine cable
from can irrancisco to Honolulu and
that no part of the rights and privileges
secured to the United States and the
Hawaiian Government should be aban
doned or waived in order to enable any
other government to secure a foothold or
lease upon any part of the Hawaiian
Islands.
'Resolved, that in the judgment of the
Senate, immediate steps should be taken
to secure possession of the Sandwich Isl
ands by their annexation to the United
States."
Lodge asked immediate consent for
the consideration of the measure.
"Let it go over," interposed Mr.
Blackburn. The presiding officer con
strues this as an objection, and s nnder
the rules the resolution went over until
The Hawaiian . subject was again
brought to the front by Frje, who call
ed up his resolution presented Saturday,
expressing the profound regret of the
Senate at this latest effort to restore the
Gray urged ' that-? the United States
Senate was not a missionary meeting to
express sentimental feeling on the as
pirations of well-intentioned people. - He
regarded the reports of the last revolu-
a; I 1 3 J TT 1 Al

event as far less important than the
Brooklyn car strike. f
Gray commented on the unwarranted
course of Admiral Walker in reporting
at length on political phases in Hawaii.
"It is a serious thing for a Senator to
make a statement implying that the
President of the United States is a sort
of a 'Nero fiddling while Rome burns "
declared Gray.
Frye asked if the United States Minis
ter at Hawaii had not requested the
presence a war ship at Honolulu.
Gray said he had no information on
that point but he read from Minister
Willis' official dispatch to Secretary
Gresham, received on Saturday, stating
that President Bole had expressed satis
faction that no foreign war ship w as
present during the recent revolution.
Frye interposed the statement that
President Dole's remarks were evidently
designed to express his satisfaction at
being able to maintain the present gov
ernment without any foreign . forces be
ing in the islands.
Gray urged that Ad aural Walker,
"who was certainly a swift witness for
this oligarchy," had himself reported
that the present Government could sus
tain itself without outside help.
Gray criticised the statements of Mr.
Lodge that the presence of the Japanese
cruiser Esmeralda in Hawaii should cre
ate apprehension. These critics of the
administration had been compelled to
give up the fear of Great Britain and turn
to Japan. They had found that Great
Britain had no concern in the subject.
The Senator from Massachusetts (Lodge)
had evidently lost great opportunities to
twist the tail of the British lion, and was .
now compelled to turn to Japan. During
Mr. Gray's reference to Admiral Walker
Mr. Lodge rose to ask as to the justifica
tion for these references against the dis
tinguished naval officer of being "a swift
witness," etc.
"That is no inference," said Gray.
"That is a direct, positive statement.
While I fully recognize the ability of
Walker as a gallant officer, I also recog
nize that he shares the predictions of his
predecessors for conquest in the matter
of coaling stations in the Pacific, and
that the real reason for maintaining a
vast naval armament is part of the Ad
miral's profession."
Chandler asked as to the movements of
the Philadelphia and Charleston. He
remarked that Gray was regarded as fully
qualified to speak for the administration.
This evidently settled Gray, who sug
gested that if the Senator would call at
the executive mansion he would un
doubtedly recti ve such information as he
desired. He (Gray) made no claims to
executive information. The Senator
from New Hampshire, having once been
Secretary of the Navy, perhaps shared
in this spirit for conquest and aggrandize
ment. Chandler smiled, and coatinued to
Question Gray as to the inference to be
rawn from his remarks that the with
drawal of the American warships was in
order to give the queen an opportunity
to restore her to the throne.
Gray indignantly denied that his re
marks could be given any such construc
tion. He urged that the present Ha
waiian Government wis not in reality a
