Ten of the incorporators are well-known merchants and business men of Ban Francisco, Portland, Humboldt and other towns on the Coast. 'Briefly stated, the object of the pro posed corporation is to lay a submar ine cable connecting San Francisco with Honolulu, Tahiti and the South Pacific islands, Asia and Australia. It la proposed to connect with the French cable at New Caledonia, which stretches to Australia, and thus make a complete line from this (city by way of Honolulu to the auti- poaes. Washington, Feb. 7.It is nrob- able that tomorrow there will be in troduced simultaneously in both houses of Congress a bill to grant a cnarter to the international racino Cable Company for the construction of a telegraphic cable between the United States and Japan by way of Honolulu. Senator jferkins of Cali fornia will introduce the bill in the Senate and Representative Charles Wilson of Pennsylvania in the House. Admiral Irwin is the moving spirit in the matter. Others who will probably do named as incorporators are U. it. Bishop of Honolulu, General Dimond is also largely interested, as well as Hugh Craig of San Francisco, William Alvord, president of the Bank of California, Louis Parrott, George W. MeNear, as well as H. F. Allen, another San Francisco banker, and Herman Oelrichs, the late Senator Fair's son-in-law. Washington, Feb. 8. The bills to charter the International Pacific Cable Company were not introduced in either branch of Congress today, for the reason that it is expected that the Senate will tomorrow vote on the pro position for a route for an American cable to Hawaii. Senator Perkins said this evening that the bill would probably be with held from either branch of Congress until it is ascertained what may be done with the proposition now pend ing before the Senate. He said, how ever, that everything was in readiness and waiting the favorable opportunity to come. Washington, Feb. 6. The Hawai ian question in general and the Ha waiian cable in particular were the main themes before the Senate today. The Diplomatic Consular Appropria tion bill was taken up and would have been quickly disposed of except for the item of $500,000 for immediately beginning cable construction between the United States and Hawaii. Mills of Texas made a point of order against the cable proposition which is likely to rule it out, but the decision was withheld until the Senators could further debate Hawaii. Hale ad dressed the Senate in favor of cable connection with Hawaii. "The annexation of Hawaii is sure to come, cable or no cable," said Hale. The Seuator spoke of the efforts of Great Britain to build the Hawaiian cable, and said we should not permit a foreign power to get this advantage. Vest aud Palmer asked the cost of the entire cable. Hale said he had care ful estimates made by cable experts. The distance along the surveyed route was about 2,100 miles. The es timates showed the cost to be about $10,000 to $12,000 per mile. This would make a total cost of $2,500,000 or $2,600,000 for the entire cable. Hale said the recent unfortunate events on the inlands and the debates in Con gress empbasixed the need of a cable, and be coDi-idered the time opportune to commit the Government to the simple plan. Allen biiegested an amendment that the Hawaiian cable nhoiiM always re main under Government ownership and control. Allen asked whatdifler ence there was betwen this proposi tion to construct uiid own a caldeand Government ownership of railroad. Piatt read from President Cleve land's message in 1SS8 urging the im portance of ' clo.-e relations with Ha waii, and saying the Importance of a cahle should not be overlooked- In 18SS Mr. Cleveland ajjaiu urged on Congress the desirability of establish ing a submarine cable to Hawaii. President Harrison bad recommended similar action. Butler asked if Hawaii was willing the United States should build the cable. Perkins said he happened to be able to answer that question. He was just back from San Francisco. Uefore leaving he was called on by the Min ister of Foreign Anairs of the Hawai ian Government, who urged the great desire of that Government that the United States should undertake the building of the cable, as Hawaii did not want Great Britain to control it. Perkins said this was the latest declar ation as to the wishes of the Hawaiian Government. The Hawaiian item was then laid aside until tomorrow. Washington, Jteo. 7. mere is just an even chance that this Congress will pass an appropriation for begin ning the construction of a telegraph cable to Honolulu. From the tenor of the debate in the Senate it is probable that body is favorable to this project and will be willing to appropriate $500,000 in the diplomatic appropria tion bill toward commencing it. The Vice-President may rule out this amendment on Senator Mill's point of order that a new project of this order Is not germane to a regular appropria tion bill, but as the majority of Sen ators seem to favor the cable project they could, with some shadow of ex cuse, successfully appeal from his de cision, contending that it is not a new project, but had its inception in 1891, when Congress, by ordering the Navy Department to take deep-sea sound ings between Monterey Bay and Ho nolulu, practically began the cable. Washington, Feb. 7. The cable project was further discussed by Mitchell and Perkins. In the course of his remarks Perkins declared that the United- States needed a new and strong administrative policy, one which would restore "old glory" to the seas. We were now paying $100, 000,000 annually for carrying on our trade In foreign ships. The urgent message of Secretary Gresham to Minister Willis as to the death sen tences of Hawaii had to be taken by a British ship flying the flag of St. George. Morgan supported the cable amend ment. Referring to Mr. Willis' latest dispatch Morgan said it strikingly illustrated" the need of speedy com munication between the Hawaiian and the authorities here. The 8enator declared that Great Britain was secretly endeavoring to wrest from the United States the great coaling station, Pearl Harbor, in Ha waii. This was granted to the United States in consideration of the reciproc ity treaty with Hawaii, and yet Eng land was now moving to secure that harbor in connection with her cable concessions, and the President of the united States had advised the grant ing of the concession. It was part of Great Britain's develonment of her sea power; part of her determination to control the facmc: part of her plan to plant herself on Hawaii as the Gib raltar of the Pacific. "It is vital that we act, and act at once," said Morgan impressively. "I would rather see every rule of this Senate broken than to have this amendment fail. Strong as the case of Hawaii was to us she would not much longer be kicked about the American Congress. She would at last reluctantly turn to Great Britain." HOW WILCOX ESCAPED. It Will be News to Him and Others Here. A late San Francisco Call states that Robert Wilcox, now at the reef, escaped and was landed on the Cali fornia coast from a schooner. Francis Harden is credited with saying that he saw Wilcox, and was in his company for a day. Continning said : "Bob is here, but I wouldn't tell you where he is even if I were Permitted to do so. He is wanted in Lonolulu, and there may be gronnds for his extradition. I am not posted on the fine points of international law. All I will say is this: Mr. Wilcox is safe and his head will not be cut off by Dole and company." 1 e i China Knocked Out. London, Feb. 7. A cablegram from Wei Hai Wei, dated today, says the Chinese fleet has practically ceased to exist. The ironclad Chen Yuen and her sister ship, the Ting Yuen, have been sunk, and the other ves sels of the Chinese fleet are within the grasp of the Japanese. mm Postal Conference. Hobabttown, Tasmania, Feb. 4. At a meeting of the Inter-Colonial postal conference held yesterday a resolution was adopted reaffirming the desirability of a four weekly service from Vancouver, alternating with San Francisco, lhe Pacific cable question was also discussed. - Death of an old Missionary. Utica, N. Y., Feb. 7. Rev. T. D. Wrieht, who was a Presbyterian missionary at Honolulu in 1843 and who held pastorates in this state and Michigan, died at his home in Whiteboro today. He was born in Rochester in 1910. Thurston Denies a Rumor. Washington, Jan. 26. Minister Thnrston denied positively today hat the Hawaiian Government was selling bonds in this country at 25 cents on the dollar for the purpose of influencing io favor of annexation. ARMS FOR REVOlUlillSTS, Minister Hatch Writes To Minister Willis Concerning Them. another excdamoe or notes. Uinliter Ihuriton Wrote That the State of Affairs Was Critical and Snffested That a "War Vessel Be Sent To Protect American Interests G re sham's Reply Washington, Feb. 4L In the Ha waiian correspondence submitted to the House today Secretary Gresham states tuat the department had no In formation In regard to arms having been furnished by British subjects to persons in rebellion against the Gov ernment of the Hawaiian Islands, but in a telegram from the United States Minister at Honolulu, dated January 11th, forwarded by way of San Fran cisco, Mr. Willis says : "Arms are re ported to have been brought from Vancouver by the Norma." The department has no information In regard to any intervention by the representatives of Great Brltlan to prevent the application of martial law by the Hawaiian Government to those concerned in the .recent rebellion who claim to be British subjects, or of any foreign representative whatever in the case, other than a statement contained in a note from the Hawaiian Minister January 20th, that the British Min ister at Honolulu, Mr. Hawes, has called upon the Government ot Ha waii to give him assurance that no capital punishment will be inflicted upon the Insurrectionists, there being fifteeu Englishmen under arrest, which requested assurance the Gov ernment had refused to give. Under date of Honolulu, November 10th, Minister Willis transmitted to Secretary Gresham the followintr note of the same date from Minister Hatch, the Hawaiian Minister of Foreign Af fairs, adding that when he received it ' he had telegraphed the Secretary the facts briefly : "Department of Foreign Affairs, Honolulu, November 10th. Sir: In formation lias Just been received at this office tending to show that a filibustering expedition against this Government is being fitted out in San Francisco and that one of the follow ing steam vessels, the Rosalia or the Alexandria, will be used for the pur pose. The information points more strongly to the latter. I desire to ask the good offices of your Government to prevent the shipment of arms on these vessels for such purpose. : ,l- ; ; F. M. Hatch." "On the 19th Inst, the Hawaiian Charge d' Affaires called on the de partment at my invitation, and in re ply to an inquiry said he had no in formation that arms had been or were to be shipped from San Francisco for use against the Government of Ha waii." - : Following this correspondence. with Willis there was an exchange of notes between Secretary Gresham and Mr. Thurston, the Minister here, which is interesting mainly because of the in sinuation by the .atter that the pres ence of an American warship at Hono lulu would be acceptable. Thurston wrote January 20th : "Sir: I have the honor to inform you that I have received from my Government telegraphic communica tions stating that the insurrection in Honolulu is broken; that several of the leaders and the remaining follow ers are fugitives in the mountains, and that the British Commissioner at Honolulu, Mr. Hawes, has called upon the Government of Hawaii to give him assurances that no capital pun ishment will be inflicted upon insur rectionists, there being fifteen Eng lishmen under arrest, which requested assurance the Government has refused to give him. A man of-war at Hono lulu has been recently the subject of discussion in the press and elsewhere. It does not lie within my province to suggest any course of action on the part of the United States concerning such subjects. I feel, however, that it is due your Government and to the large American population and prop erty interests in Hawaii to state that although the Government of Hawaii is, and will continue in the future as it has in the past, fully able to main tain itself from the attacks from do mestic enemies, in view of the serious nature of the charges now pending against a large number of both for eigners and natives, and of other com plicating conditions, the state of affairs at the Islands is critical, as in the event of further insurrection or complication, although the. Govern ment win use every endeavor to pro tect foreign citizens and their prop erty, it is not impossible that sudden contingencies may artee or isolated acts of violence take place, against whieh the Government, with its po lice and military force, may temporar ily be unable to afford protection." In his reply, on January 20th, Sec retary Ores ham said : "On receipt of a dispatch from Mr. Willis yesterday morning on the subject of the upris ing, which was immediately given to the press, a warshlo was at once or dered to proceed from San Francisco to Honolulu to afford needed protec tion to any Americans entitled to It. That fact was also announced by the press Saturday afternoon and this morning, and I naturally supposed that the announcement had attracted your attention."
