but is very cordial. My residence in
Hawaii from the time of my going there
to my departure on leave of absence
has been very agreeable and pleasant,
without anything jarring or discordant,
except for about a week during the ex
citement of the revolution. I could not
desire more cordiality and manifesta
tion of friendly feeling than I have re
ceived from both the citizens and the
Government of Hawaii. Everything is
peaceful, beautiful, delightful on the
Islands. The Legislature was about
closing up its work when I left, and
they accomplished several important
things. The immigration question and
a number of other questions are of
great importance, but the Government
has manifested wisdom and capacity
in dealing with the questions as they
arise. The Islands are enjoying a pe
riod of phenomenal prosperity and the
people seem contented. There is no
talk and apparently no thought of revo-;
lution or disorder. When people have

j Minister Willis said that his depart
t ure from Honolulu was only for a va
cation to enable him to visit his home,
and that he had no intention other than
returning to his post at the close of his
leave of absence.
About Returning to Congress.
"They are talking about nominating
you for Congress in your district?"
"Yes. I have discovered this upon my
arrival in this country, but it had noth
ing to do with my vacation. I had no
thought of it. and do not now know
how much seriousness there is in it.
I shall have to say to you, as I did to a
representative of the papers in my dis
trict, who was sent to meet me at Chi
cago, that I have not thought over the
matter, do not know how general the
feeling may be in favor of my nomina
tion, and shall have to reserve any de
cision on the matter until I have been
home. When I get home I shall come
to a decision as speedilj- as possible in
justice to any aspirants there may be
for the nomination. I am told that the
newspapers in my district are quite
unanimous in mentioning my name in
this connection, and it is of course grat
lrymg. I do not know what I shall do.
As I have said, I have had no other in
tention than to return to my post."
FAVOR NICARAGUA CANAL.
senate Committee Reports Same Bill as the
WASHINGTON, June 2. The Senate
Committee on the Nicaragua canal held
a meeting today and authorized the
chairman, Senator Morgan, to report
favorably a bill similar to that which
has been reported in the House for the
construction of the Nicaragua Canal.
I The committee also signified its con
currence in a report on the bill which
Senator Morgan had prepared, and
which he read to the committee. Tie
report was afterward presented to the
Senate. It is a voluminous document
and discusses in a comprehensive man
ner all the questions involved in the
construction of the proposed water
way. Referring to the report of the Nicar
agua Canal Commission, the committee
"There is, in fact, no real engineering
difficulty in any part of the projected
work. To say that this work is prac
ticable at a cost that bears a reasonable
comparison with its importance and
value, and to add that it should not be
built until every feature of the work is
fixed by tests that are impossible to be
applied in advance of construction, is
out of the range of all experience, and
can only be a pretext for refusing to
engage in it."
The committee expresses the opinion
based upon the work performed
that the canal can be constructed for
less than Menocal's estimate, which is
$73,176,176. but they estimate that at a
cost of $150,000,000, the highest figure
named, it would Dav an averaee of 11.-

SAN FRANCISCO. June 5. The first

Mexican Government will be sent out

ship Zaragosa, and it is to them that
the expedition is intrusted.
At present the ship is utilized as a
training school for officers. When a
midshipman graduates from the Mexi
can Naval Academy he is placed on the
Zaragosa, where the higher branches
of navigation and naval warfare are
taught. The present expedition is to
educate the young men of the navy and
fit them for future efforts.
The Zaragosa Is now connected with
the Mexican Hydrographic Bureau. The
Government heretofore has been utiliz
ing the reports of foreign bureaus, and
his will be the first attempt to secure
information by native investigation.
With this object in view, the Zara
gosa. under the command of Admiral
A. Ortiz Monasterio, will set sail from
this port and proceed direct to Hono
lulu. Complete records will be taken
of all hydrographic conditions of the
various places touched. From Honolu
