Joint Resolntion Introanced
PRESSED BY . ADMINISTRATION
Favorably Considered By Committee-Speaker
Not Oppose It.
A joint annexation resolution
has been introduced in the House
of Representatives in Washington.
The resolution incorporates the
provisions for taking possession of
the Islands made in the treaty
sent to the Senate by the Presi
dent. WASHINGTON, Mav 5.-
House Committee on Foreign Af
fairs met todav and considered
various bills and resolutions re
lating to annexation of Hawaji.
There was a strong majority fav
orable to annexation, but the
meeting adjourned without defi
nite action. The question will.be
considered again next Tuesday.
It is said the Administration is
pressing for early action. It is
understood that if there should be
a report from committee in favor of
annexation the Speaker will not
interpose any objections.
WASHINGTON, May 5. Sec
retary Long today ordered Naval
Constructor Capps of San Fran
cisco to proceed at the earliest
possible moment on the steamer
City of Peking, and meet Dewey's
squadron at Manila. Capps will
take with him a force of experi
enced workmen from Mare Isl
and. In addition he will take a
full supply of tools, steel plates
and all material needed to make
repairs to the ships of the Asiatic

Sazasta's Resignation Xot Accepted
By Queen Reerent.
MADRID, May 5. The last 24 hours
have been anxious ones for the minis
ters and the authorities at Madrid.
Premier Sagasta went twice to see the
Queen and offered to resign if she be
lieved a conservative or military Cabi
net could better defend the dynasty
and the monarchy than the Govern
ment whose members stick to their
posts now only from a sense of loyal
ty to the Crown and self-respect, as
they do not wish to be accused of
abandoning the reins of state in the
midst of war.
The chief fear is of a popular revol
ution, which everybody can see is
brewing. The civil authorities in Mad
rid got so alarmed at the attitude of
the Republicans and Carlists that they
frankly told Senor Sagasta they could
not answer for order much longer.
The Barcelona authorities report a
very serious condition of affairs there,
the Republicans working upon the
masses, who are discontented because
of the rise in the price of all provisions
and the closing of many factories in
consequence of the loss of the Cuban
and Philippine markets.
The Queen asked Senor Sagasta to
remain in office. He consented to do
so. on condition that she would give
permission to proclaim a state of siege
in Madrid. Now martial law rules.
Anyone circulating news about the war
can be sent to a military prison. Court
martials are held. One Carlist, one So-
cialists, one military, one Republican
and one Independent paper have been
seized and prosecuted by order of the
military judges. If national feeling
runs too high against Senors Sagasta
and Moret, who really are in the most
danger, the Queen probably will ask
Marshal Campos to form a sort of gov
ernment for the defense of the mon
archy. The old marshal has told her
that he will be ready to do so directly
she sends for him. So the days of the
Sagasta Cabinet are numbered.
Marblehead Shells Forts ami the
NEW YORK, May 5 A special from
Fey West to The Press sas's:
' Cienfuegos has been bombarded. Not
only did the Marblehead silence the
batteries of the town on the afternoon
of April 29, but shelled the town itself,
playing havoc with the buildings and
driving thousands of the inhabitants
to the interor.
The shooting at the forts was at
4,000 yards. As goon as the forts were
disabled Captain McCalla ordered that
the five inch guns be given an eleva
tion to reach 8,000 yards.
From Mr. Thurston.
In a telegram brought from Vancou
ver by the S. S. Warrimoo, Mr. Thurs
ton told of the introduction in the
House at Washington of the Hawaiian
annexation resolution, to be
there and sent to the Semite.
It was stated in a telegram from
New York that Speaker Reed would
not obstruct the resolution. There was
no mention of the treaty in the Senate.
One telegram said that the attitude
of Hawaii since the war had been most
favorably commented upon every
where. Medical Association.
The executive committee of the Med
ical Association of Hawaii met last ev
ening in the office of Drs. Myers and
Andrews. There were present besides
the two physicians mentioned, Drs.
Alvarez and Herbert. The obpect of
the meeting was to make arrangements
for the annual meeting. This will be
held on May 25th and 26th, at 8 p. m.
of each day at the office of Drs. Myers
and Andrews. A cordial invitation to
be present is extended to all members

Peking and Australia.
Important private advices or infor
mation in regard to the steamships
City of Peking and Australia were re
ceived here from the Coast yesterday.
This was later from San Francisco
than the Zealandia. It was stated that
the City of Peking and the Australia
were in the command of United States
naval officers and were at the Union
Iron Works dock. They were being
loaded with all sorts of material for
the repair of warships and with am
munition that had been in storage for
the Asiatic fleet. Both steamers were
to put to sea so soon as possible and
it was expected that they would sail
from San Francisco not later than the
9th inst. The S. S. China was to follow
on the 15th with troops.

Navy Department Sas Not Heard
From Dewey Yet.
SENSATIONAL REPORT DENIED
Orders Have Been Issued to Send
City of Peking to Manila
WASHINGTON, May 5. Up to
0:30 no word has been received at
the Slate or Navy Departments
from Dewey. Secretary Long
states in a most positive manner
he will make the people acquainted
with the news from Dewey as soon
as it is received.
ANXIETY ABOUT DEWEY.
Five Days Without News Makes
WASHINGTON, May 5 Although
naturally anxious to hear from Com
modore Dewey, the President and
members of the Cabinet are not at all
alarmed at the non-arrival of news of
the Manila fleet. It is pointed out that
the cable office is about 100 miles or
more distant from the city and the
connecting land line is in the hands of
the Spanish, who, it is assumed, can
not be dislodged by the commodore
with the force now at his disposal. The
commodore it is said may have been
compelled to send a slow vessel out, or
he may be waiting to send news of the
surrender of the island. In any event,
the contingencies are such that no de
finite time can be fixed for the arrival
of the report.
Nor are the President and his ad
visers disturbed at the situation of the
Oregon and the Marietta. They have
no fear that the Cape Verde fleet is en
route to intercept them as such a move
would be the height of folly. In case
of an attack it is confidently believed
that the Oregon would sink at least one
or two of the assailants, so that if the
enemy were to succeed in defeating
her he would have suffered an equal or
greater loss himself. This exchange
the Spaniards are in no position to
make. Although the Government has
had no official news of the whereabouts
of the Cape Verde fleet, no doubt ex
ists it has returned to Cadiz as report
ed by the Lloyds. Wherever it is, the
Government has no reason to hope
that it will venture into these waters.
Dewey's Possible Fix.
CHICAGO, May 5. A special to the
Journal from Washington says the
fear that Dewey may be bottled up in
Manila harbor is gaining ground. It
is recollected that the entrance to Ma
nila harbor is through a channel plant
ed with mines. Dewey passed these in
the night and no opportunity was
given the Spaniards to fire them. Now
if he has not forced a surrender of the
city and gained control of the switch
boards used in firing the submerged ex
plosives an attempt to leave the harbor
by any of the ships composing the
Asiatic squadron would he met by an
attack from the mines.
To lJoiiilmrtl California.
MADRID, May 5. (via Paris). It is
said that two ironclads, two cruisers
and three torpedo boats are about to
leave Cadiz to drive the Americans
from Manila and then bombard Cali
fornia. ARK I X 1)1 It N ANT.
Sensational Stories of Disaster Cou
WASHINGTON CITY, May 5. Nary
Department officials are highly indig
nant at the San Francisco stories con
cerning the terrible loss of life of
sailors on board the American war
ships at Manila. The officials say the
dispatches were cruel and senseless
and inflicted great misery on the
wives, mothers and daughters and rel
atives of the brave sailors of the fleet.
The officials have about concluded
there is little prospect of receiving
news from Dewey directly today. They
figure that presuming the dispatch
boat sailed at the earliest moment
after bombardment Monday evening
and allowing three days for the pass
age the ship is not due at Hongkong
or Mirs Bay until tonight. It is al
ready tonight by our time in either
place and possibly the McCullough or
some dispatch boat is just entering
the harbor. Other delays would occur
before the receipt of a cable here,
through many relay stations, so it Is
thought there is little chance of offi
cial news coming in during daylight
WASHINGTON CITY, May 5. No
confirmation is obtainable of the vari
ous reports concerning the movements
of Admiral Sampson's fleet. Persons
supposed to share the confidence of the
Administration declare that Admiral
Sampson has gone to seize Porto Rico,
while others, with equal positiveness,
say the fleet has gone to meet the Ore
gon and escort her north. Still an
other report is to the effect that Samp
son has gone to seize Matanzas,' to use
it as a base of operations. The officials
absolutely refuse to make public the
plans of the startegy board.
KEY WEST, May 5 The Spanish
fishing smack Do Septembre was
brought in last night by a prize crew
from the Helena. She was taken eight
days ago in Yucatan channel by the
gunboat. Adverse weather was en
countered, during which the charts
were blown overboard, and the captors
with their little prize cruised aimlessly
about the waters of the Gulf until
Tuesday, when the British steamer
Jamaica was encountered and put'them
on their course.
Alfonso XIII Arrives.
MADRID, May 5, 3 p. m. It was an
nounced officially today that the Span
ish steamer Alfonso XIII., said to have
troops and a valuable cargo on board,
had arrived at Porto Rico. It was
feared she would be captured.
