THE PACIFIC COMMKKC1AL ADVERTISER: HOOLrHJ, FiBRUAIlY 11, 1S95.
government It was a tentative le f icto orjranJMiion. This brought Hawlev ( Republic An), of Connecticut, lo hi feet with the remark that it might account for President Cleveland's action lastAui:u&t in dealing wiih a delegation of royalists who came to Washington. . 'it is a mitrerej-entation of the Presi dent of the United States to say that he deal: with the royalists." responded Gray, with much fore "The President had not conferred with the royaltst delegation- He had refused to see them offi cially." . . . Frye said he desired action. He bad hoped on Saturday to cable the young Hawaiian Republic that the American people who made and unmade Presi dents; who made and unmade Secretaries of State were profoundly in sympathy with its struggles. He had hoped some thing would ico by the vessel leaving San Francisco today. He asked an immedi ate vote. . , . Mills of Texas objected to such speedy action. . , , "Then I give notice," said Frye, that the resolution will be advanced by every possible means from this time forward." That is what we want," said Mills. 'We want the resolution fully debated." Frye added to his previous notice that be would call up the Hawaiian resolution tomorrow, and he concluded in response to Chandler's suggestion that the resolu tion might loose its place, "We will then be strong enough to take it up." Three sets of resolutions on the Ha waiian question were today introduced in the House and referred. The first one was by Breckinridge (D.) of Kentucky, favoring annexation. The second, by Storror, calls on the President for In formation relative to the report that the rebellion In Honolulu was incited by British subjects, and that the British Minister intervened to prevent the appli cation of martial law. The third, by Breckinridge (D.) of Kentucky, calls at tention to the crisis successfully passed through during the past week by the re publics of France and Hawaii, and offer ing congratulations on their ability to maintain order and preserve peace. Washington, Jan. 22. The policy of ha Administration as to Hawaii was again the subject of sharp attack and de fense in the Senate today, xae personal element in the controversey drew large crowds to the galleries, which at times overflowed into the outer corridors. It indicated the diminution of public interest in Hawaii, now that the course of the administration is the main ques tion of discussion. Mr. Gray and Mr George justified the administration, and Gray dwelt upon the persistency and vindictiveness with which the President was vilified and misrepresented. Lodge and Hawley made the critical speeches of the day, the former urging the extent of the foreign British aggres sion in the Pacific, while Mr. Hawley made pointed comment on the considera tion given to ex-Queen Liliuokalani's representatives who visited the State Department after the United States had formally recognized the Hawaiian Re- fublic Thurston of Hawaii was again in the diplomatic gallery, accompanied by his secretary, Mr. Hastings.! The subject one expressing generally the disapproval ox urn p enaie in we acuon ox we admin istration in withdrawing war ships from Hawaii. M V t . . it Ji - Gray (D.) of Delaware again took the floor ta further answer, he said, the flimsy attacks made in tha Senate against the Administration. The Sen ator referred to the statement by Senator Hawley made yesterday as to the Presi dent seeing the royalist delegation which visited Washington last August. Mr. Gray reiterated that the President had never seen these delegates, being sick at the tune. "Are you prepared to say that they never saw the Secretary of State T1 asked Frye. uray saia ne naa no lniormation on that point. Hawley rose to reply, holdinzin his hand a newspaper slip containing Presi dent uieveland s authorized statement cf the facts concerning the royalist dele gates. Hawley said he had not intended to maintain that a personal interview be tween the President and the royalists naa occurred, tie was reliably informed tnattnero had been no personal inter view, but continued reading from the President's statement to show that the royalist delegates had se4n Secretary Greaham. It should b9 kept in mind that these delegates were the represen uuves oi inose conspiring to restore a deposed queen. They were in Wash ington either as conspirators against the existing Government of Hawaii or else they were here on an honest mission. If it was honest they ought to have been referred to the Hawaiian Minister. If they were conspirators they should not have been received by Gresham. Hawley read from the letter of the royalist delegates to the Secretary of State: 44 We, the undersigned Commis sioners, sent by the deposed queen, re quest an interview with the President." Just think of the audacity," said Mr. Hawley. 4Thinkof this request of our Secretary of Bute after we had formally recognized the Government of Hawaii." The Senator said he desired to make no personal arraignment of tha Presi dent, but he (Hawley) believed the" Pres ident's whole course on Hawaii had been wrong. Gray again answered the criticisms upon the President. He said these at tacks were so constant, the animus so evident, that it was perhaps useless to controvert them. Some people seemed determined to attack the President what ever the subject be. If he sat down he was too long; if he stood up he was too short. These critics were bound to find fault. The President's letter to the roy alist delegates was purely unofficial. It was part of the course by which the President with a strong hand was en deavoring to conduct business. The Sen ator declares this agitation and this talk of keeping war ships at Honolulu was kept up lugely by the schemers lor annexation," who thought it woald help their cause. The 8amoan question wa unexpected ly interjected into the dt-bate at this point. Gray referred to the fact that the United States was now bound by inter national agreement to keep a barbarous king in power in Samoa. It would not do to declaim against a barbarous queen, when we at the same time were protect ing such a king. Mr. George declared the Hawaiian Government was republi j can only in form. It was a government of force. It had been established by foreef and was now maintained by force. t Lodge presented a new phase of he! subject by submitting a long list of the islands in the Pacifiic which Great Britain had gradually absorbed. In pur suance of a settled policy England was taking every foot cf territory she could lay her hands on. They were now trying to get Neckar island, of the Hawaiian group. This was part of the British policy of aggression. The British influence was back of the royalist element in Hawaii. The heir to the throne was Princess Kaiulani, daughter of an Englishman, and now being educated in England, ner guard ian, Theophilus Davies, was an English sympathizer, and was to some extent identified with the recent uprising of the royalists. 4The arms used in this uprising were boukht by an Englishman," declared Lodge, rhey were shipped in a Brit ish ship from a Canadian port. The insurrectionists were largely English men. When the Alameda left Hawaii fifteen Canadians were under arrest and the British Minister was interceding in their behalf. This," paid Mr. Lodge, made the case that British influence was behind the royalist element in Ha waii." The Senator proceeded to criticize the action of the administration in taking the ships from Honolulu and then con ferring with the royalists' delegates who came to Washington. Lodge thought it a peculiar incident that the war ships were withdrawn just at the time when the royalists were in Washington. The present administration was openly and avowedly opposed to the existing Gov ernment of Hawaii. The speeches of Senators in defense of the administration were in effect speeches in support of the royalist element of Hawaii. It was time for action by Congress." It was no longer a question of the new or the old Govern ment of Hawaii, but a question of main taining American interests in Hawaii. The Senate bad heretofore passed a reso lution stating that any foreign occupancy of Hawaii would not be tolerated by the United States. This was a threat to the rest of the world. It created a response bility on the part of the United States. It should impel us to uphold the existing Government because it represented American interests and American spirit as against foreign sentiment. Lodge closed with an impassioned pro test against the pulling down of the American flag when it had once been raised. Kyle gave figures from the latest Ha waiian year book, showing the many millions of American capital invested in Hawaii. How much of that is held by one man Claus Spreckels?" asked Gray. Kyle did not have the figures as to Spreckels. This closed the Hawaii de bate for the day. NAVAL NOTES. Interesting Gossip Concerning the United States Navy.

The Navy department naa directed the com mandant of the Mare Island Navy jtara to pi ace tne new crusier Olympia in commission on February 1st, with John J. Bead as Captain. The departure of the Philadelphia for Hawaii with Admiral Beardslee will prevent the transfer of his flag to the Olympia, which was to have become the flagship of the Pacific station, but it is probable that as soon as the Admiral can leave the Philadelphia he will return to San Francisco and take charge of the new vessel. Admiral Beardslee's fleet will con sist of the strongest aggregation of war ships the Pacific station has ever had. Besides the Philadelphia and Olympia, there are the Boston, Ben nington, Monterey. Mohican. Marion. Adams, Alert and Banger. Five of the new Navy and the rest are in thorough condition after the Bearing sea cruise. Vallzjo, Jan. 22. By an order from the Navy Department received today directing the immediate pre paration of the Banger and Alert for sea, large gangs have put to coaling anu provisioning tne snips named, and it is likely the department mere ly wishes to have them in readiness for instant movement, should the next steamer bring applications for assistance at Honolulu. The Boston is also being rushed. She is out of the dock and alongside the seawall being rigged. Two or three weeks, in case of an emergency. would suffice to make her ready. lhe Mohican, at present stationed at the Sound, will be ordered back to San Francisco. The Alert and the Ranger were ordered to San Diego on the 24th ult. An American ship will soon be ordered to Samoa. New York, Jan. 24.
