government It was a tentative le f icto
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-

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
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
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
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

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.

American flag when it had once been
