CIIAKTKK FOi: IMUVATK CUMI'ANV Fate of the Bill Aot Settled Till Lant Daj' .Session of Coogresa Iloase Conferees Win Their Point Next Con gret xpe-ted to be More Friendly. Washington, March 3. The pro ceedings were comparatively tame. In the Senate the naval appronriatiou bill consumed the time until after 10 o'clock tonight. The amendment of the Committee on Appropriations striking out one of the proposed bat tleships being, among other things, agreed to. Then Senator Blackburn reported the continued disagreement of the couferes on the Hawaiian cable amendment to the consular and dip lomatic bill. He urged the Seuate to recede from its stand in favor of the cable, expressing his disapproval of the project, and saying he believed the President would not approve the measure with such a provision. Black burn confessed that the Democrats had not shown themselves able to cope with the financial question and he thought the cable scheme should also be committed to the next Con gress. Senator Hale followed with :i speech in favor of the cable, Haying that if this Congress refused the appropria-, tion the next Congress would surely authorize it, and if the President would not sign the bill it would not be very long before a Republican P:e sident would have a chance at it. Senator White of California said that he had favored the cable project and voted for It before. He believed it now ueceseary for the Senate to re cede from the stand it took. The ayes and noes were not ordered, but a num ber of Senators on the Republican side voted against the motion on the viva voce vote. This disposed of the consular and diplomatic bill. "Blackburn presented another con ference report on the diplomatic and consular appropriation bill stating that no agreement had been reached on the Hawaiian cable, and there was no prospect that the House would ever yield. The bill would fail, he said, if the Senate persisted on the vote about to be taken, in keeping the cable ap propriation in the bill. He believed also that the bill was doomed to fail ure even If the two houses acquiesced in the item. Hawley quickly asked if it was meant to intimate that the President would veto the bill. I am not able to say;" replied Blackburn, "that the President would veto it, but I know that if I were the President I would veto it." Blackburn warned the Senate that another Insistence on the cable then might mean an extra session. He thought perhaps that this might be desirable, as he believed it would tshow the next Congress as helpless in deal ing with the financial question as this Congress had been. He moved that the Senate recede from the Hawaiian cable amendment. White (D.) of California announced that he had heretofore supported the cable item, but he now felt compelled to change Ids vote. Blackburn's motion to recede on the cable item was then put to a vote and carried without a division. The con ference report on the diplomatic and consular bill was then agreed to. Washington,' Feb. 21. The House devoted most of the day to the con sideration of the Senate amendmeut to the Consular and Diplomatic Ap propriation bills, appropriating $500, (00 for the construction of a cable to the Hawaiian Islands. Ryan, Bart lett and Sickles spoke in favor of the amendment, which wa9 defeated by a vote of 1 14 to 152, sixteen Democrats voting for the cable. The bill was then s-ent to further conference. Hooker, a member of the Foreign Allairs Committee, opened the debate in opposition to the proposed amend ment. By the terms of his amend ment, he said, the Government was to own, coutrol and operate this Hawaii an cable. Such a proposition had never been madt before. A private enterprise should -onitruct this cable, if it so desired. Storer deprtcated making this mat ter a party question, but said he real ized ii was only In thi- way the Chair man of the Committee on Foreign Affairs hoped to defeat thia project. Party li:es had been broken in the Senate when thi amendment was voted into the bill. H- called atten tion to the necessity for ;he cable as expressed in two of Present Cleve land's messages a ud t-'-e recommenda tions of Mr. Bsyard when h- was Sec retary of ttate. MK. CLEVELAND'S PROPER COURSE. That, said Storer, was when there was a Democrat at the hoad of that department. Things were) different now that there wa- a Secretary in the State Depnrtment who roe above or below party accordingly as he was viewed. Still, if the Administration was now opposed to this cable, the manly thing for Cleveland to do would be to send a message to Congress say ing he had changed his mind. In con elusion, Storer said that a submarine cable was not as much a necessity to the navy as the electric signal which. rtnncufa tho riilrtf rimiao txifVi tKia an-V. gice-room or a uatuesnip. Draper said he favored this cable as a preliminary step toward the annexa tion of the Hawaiian Islands. Hermann declared that to the Pacific Coast the question of a cable connec tion with Honolulu overshadowed and transcended all others save only that of the construction of the Nicaragua canal. The people of the Hawaiian Islands gave us 90 per cent of their trade. More of our ships entered the port of Honolulu than any other port in the world last year, Liverpool not excepted. Aside from the commercial reasons for the construction of this cable, there were patriotic and public reasons. Harter thought this cable should be laid by private capital, .and, he con cluded, private parties had appeared before the committee and asked for a charter for this purpose. Ryan thought this Democratic House could well af ford, in the closing hours of the ses tion to show its sympathy with mer clirsnts desiring to extend our trade by voting an appropriation for the con struction of this cable. SICKLES' ELOQUENT SUPPORT. Sickles earnestly supported the ca ble proposition. He was compelled to appeal from the judgment of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs to that of the Senate Committee. As an American he had a platform of his own. He favored annexation. As a Democrat he found his warrant in the policy of Jefferson, who annexed Lou isiana, and of Jackson, who annexed Texas. If party lines trammeled him on a questiou like this he would break them asunder as he had done before. There could be no nartisanshin in Americanism. 'Mr. Speaker," Sickles concluded, "my spau of life has not much longer to run, yet I hope to live to see the star of the Republic of the Pacific add its tropical splendor to the star of the Western Hemisphere." RlcCreary closed the debate, and in the course of his remarks denied that Mr. Cleveland had ever indorsed h proposition for the construction of a Hawaiian cable by the Government. He had merely favored the incorpora tion of a company to lay such a cable. mo vote was then taken on Hitt's tnolion that the House agree to the Senate amendments. Hitt demanded the ayes and noes, and the roll was called. His motion was lost, 114 to 152. The vote was practically a party one, the Republicans and Populists voting for the building of the cable and the Democrats against it. Without division the House, on mo tion of McCreary, non concurred in the amendment and further confer ence was ordered. Washington, Feb. 28. The House today insisted upon its disagreement to the Senate amendment for the pro posed Hawaiian cable. The California delegation voted solidly as before for the appropriation, but the majority against the cable was practically the same as when the matter was before broached in the House. Representative Stone of Pennsyl vania, who offered the bill in the House for an independent cable to Japan by the way of Honolulu, said to a Chronicle correspondent that if the amendment to the consular and dip lomatic bill was defeated he would immediately try to get through his own measure, asking unanimous con sent therefor, if necessary, tegetit up. The Senate is still firm, but opin ions differ as to whether it will ul timately yield or not. Senator Perkins was inclined to think that the Senate would stand firm, but Senator White, on the contrary, spoke in rather dub ious terms of the ultimate result of the proposition. Senator Perkins and Representative Stone had a conference upon the sub ject, and they determined upon a line of action in the event of the defeat of the proposition embodied in the con sular and diplomatic bill. They will both then endeavor to get through a bill for a private charter. FOR THK CAItLH. Thurston Responds To a Toaat at a Ban quet. Trenton (N. J.), Feb. 23. At the annual banquet of the Trenton Board of Trade Iat night the Hon. Dorrln A. Thurston, Hawaiian Minister to the United States, responded to the toast, "The Commercial Control of the Pac ific." After expressing his pride in representing the youngest republic in the world, Mr. Thurston quoted figures showing the magnitude and thegrowth of commerce iu the Pacific Ocean. Not a vessel, he said, could go across the Pacific Ocean without stopping at Hawaii for coal. The great nations are taking strides in subsidizing the traffic in the Pacific, paying greater attention to the Pacific Islands than to Africa. Canada has recognized the value of the commerce of the Pacific, and has started four steamship companies from Vancouver, and every effort is being made to push trade. Mr. Thurston said one of the means of establishing closer relations with Hawaii was by building the proposed cable. This he earnestly advocated. Bishop Auction SaIs. Auctioneer Morgan conducted a successful gale of articles belonging to Hon. C. Iw. Bishop yesterday. Among tbe purchasers were Mr?. Admiral Beardelee, Commissioner Hawes and others. The eale will be continued some day during next week. ROW III THE SPRECKELS FAMILY Suit Between Rudolph Spreckels and His Father. IT CONCfiRSQ PA At II Al' STOCK. Plaintiff Claim 1 hat if the Nevada Baak Transfers Certain stock. He Will Loie a Quarter of a Million Dollar by Reason Hawaiian Govt. Taxes. San Francisco, March 7. Rudolph Sprcck-; Is has brought suit in the Su perior Court to enjoin the Nevada bank from transferring from his name cer tain shares of stock pledged by him to secure certain payments from C. A. Spreckels. Judge Hebbard has grant ed a temporary Injunction and will hear the case. The injunction is in the sum of $10,000 and the sureties are C. P. Splivalo and Joseph Kahn. The complaint sets forth that iu January, 1S94, Claus Spreckels and C. A. Spreckels entered into an agree ment by the terms of which Claus Spreckels was to transfer to his son certain valuable property In consider ation of certain yearly payments to be made by him, the last one to" become due next January. To secure his yearly payments C. A. Spreckels pledged some securities said to be far more valuable than the total of the payments so secured. At that time, so runs the complaint, Rudolph Spreckels owned 5000 ehares of Paauhau Plantation Company stock, which stood in Spreckels' name. This stock Rudolph agreed to pledge as additional security for the payments from C. A. Spreckels would provide that Claus Spreckels transfer it to his (Rudolph's) name on the books of tbe corporation. This was done, and Rudolph indorsed the certificates, it being agreed, so the complaint alleges, . that the stock should - remain in Rudolph's name uutil after the maturity of the debt. It was also agreed, sets forth the plain tiff, that upon the payment of the first yearly installment of the debt 2500 shares of tbe stock should be re turned to Rudolph aud that upon the liquidation of tbe indebtedness the re maining 2500 shares should also be re turned. Claus Spreckels transferred his claim against his son to tbe Nevada Bank, turning overall the securities hypothecated including Rudolph's 5000 shares of Paauhau stock. C. A. Spreckels paid his first yearly installment amounting to $351,750, and half the stock was turned over to Rudolph. The other payment will not become due till next January, but the Nevada Bank, so the plaintiff claims, disregarding the agreement, now threatens to send the stock to Honolulu and have it transferred from Rudolph's name notwithstanding the alleged fact that it holds other secur ities far in excess in value of the pay ment still to be made. It is charged in the complaint that the bank's action is taken for the purpose of voting the shares against Rudolph at the next election and preventing him from pocketing his interests' in the corpora tion; It is also charpt-d that the pro posed action is meditated solely for the purpose of injuring the plaintiff in his property and fiuat cial credit. Incidentally the plaintiff claims that the transfer an-1 reissue of the stock will impose a large expenditure upon him, because the Hawaiian Gov ernment levies a tax upon such re- The plaintlff claim that if the bank be permitted to pursue its intended course he will be injured through the depreciation of the stock from its present value of $250,000, far beyond any amount of damages be might be able to recover. Therefore, he prays that the bank be enjoined from re moving the stock from the jurisdiction of tbe State of California and from having it transferred from the plain tiffs name pending the maturity of C. A. Spreckels' indebtedness. Gay Gaiety Girls. The Gaiety Girls troupe enjoyed their short stay here yesterday. They expressed themselves a 3 very much delighted with their treat ment. At the departure of the Mariposa they were the center of attraction. Whan the band played ' Tommy Aitkine" they could not contain themselves and danced for joy, waving their hands at the crowd and to their gentlemen friends of fehort acquaintance. As the feteamtr hauled slowly out in the stream the whole troupe sang:. "God bless you, Honolulu, Here's your country's health to you." s The Hawaiian band pfayed at the Kamehsmeha Girls School on Thursday afternoon by special request.
