IH LETTERS AND A TELEGRAM Advices From Minister Hatch Mr. Thurston Consul Wilder Joint Resolution Will Pass-Mr. Reed. News on the question of annexation that came to the Government and private parties by the mail yesterday was of the most encouraging nature. Even Minister Hatch has grown a trifle enthusiastic over the outlook. Mr. Thurston speaks with considerable confidence and Consul General Wilder, from hia vantage ground at San Francisco, offers the assurance that the matter will be settled to the satisfaction of the Island people within three weeks. From Minister Hatch there was both a letter and a telegram. The letter gave a close detailed account of the situation and made some suggestions in regard to local affairs bearing directly on the. treaty and joint resolution. In the telegram sent to San Francisco by Minister Hatch but a few minutes before sailing of the China, he says that he can add nothing to his let ter under the head of action, but that progress is being made, that the pros pects are improving and that there is pre vailing a much better feeling. By noting that there had been no action after his letter had been mailed, Minister Hatch meant that no vote had been taken. There is much transpiring in the way of action that is important and effective. The friends of annexation are working harder than ever before and are getting the re ward of a full showing of ready and most promising results. Those opposed to the treaty and joint resolution seem to have entirely exhausted their ammuni tion. The enemies of the union of the Republic of Hawaii and the Great Re public are said to now rely wholly on the possibility of consideration of the joint resolution by the House of Repre sentatives being postponed by parliamen tary maneuvering. Mr. Thurston gives a careful review of the situation and pictures the future in glowing terms. He believes that success is now fairly in view. From San Francisco, Consul-General Wilder writes that it is now understood to be the fact that Speaker Reed will not carry his opposition to annexation to the point of meeting administration dis approval and that the treaty will pass within three weeks. There has been sent here the favorable report of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the joint resolution. This is the handiwork of Chairman Davis and is a masterful document. It starts in with a comparison of Hawaiian conditions and the conditions that prevailed at the time the Republic of Texas was taken into the Union by joint resolution. Mr. Davis makes it clear that a parellel is present ed. Included in the report are extensive extracts from the paper by Mr. Thurston meeting paragraph by paragraph the va rious objections to the annexation of Ha waii. Mr. Davis puts great stress upon the commercial af antages which will accrue to the United States by the ab sorption of Hawaii. Figures are given in detail. There is pointed mention of the growth of American shipping that will ensue under the Union. Mr. Davis shows how other countries have coveted Hawaii. Captain Mahan, Admiral Walk er, General Schofield and others are quoted as showing the value of Hawaii as an outpost in case of war with any nation. A member of the Government said to a reporter for the Advertiser after the Cabinet had read the dispatches received by Minister Cooper: "We feel greatly encouraged by the news that has been re ceived. It is the best we have had for a long time. The report of the Foreign Relations Committee of the Senate on the joint resolution will have its effect. Mr. Tawney's speech in the House entirely offset the address against us made by Mr. Johnson. Mr. Tawney made votes for the treaty. Besides all this, there is given the assurance that Speaker Reed will not stand in the way of consideration of the joint resolution by the House. It is ex pected that the Senate will pass the reso lution in a few days. Perhaps it has been passed already. It it not likely that any more long speeches would be made. On the whole the annexationists should be in high feather." Thomas Square Concert. A moonlight concert will be given in Thomas Square this evening.
