OOCOOOOOOOCOOOOXXX)d I TAiinir 15 Records United States to Use Hawaii as Base of Siplies. MAY ANNEX ISLANDS AT ONGE Action Expected in Committee. Many Warships Will Pass Through. NEW YORK, May 9. The Herald's Washington correspondent telegraphs Every ton of coal at the Hawaiian Isl ands suitable for steamer use has been bought for the navy of the United States. Orders' have been issued from the Navy Department to dispatch at once colliers to Honolulu loaded with more coal, and that point is to be made the most important coaling station in the entire Pacific ocean. It is foreseen by the Administration that there will have to be constant passing back and forth between the Pacific coast and Manila of naval ves sels, transports and supply ships, and it is absolutely necessary that these vessels should take on coal at Hono lulu, as few of them can steam the en tire distance from San Francisco to Manila without recoaling en route. It is well understood by the Admin istration that the Hawaiian Govern ment will make no objection to the United States naval vessels and trans ports coaling at Honolulu, though it is realized that by taking that course the Hawaiian Government takes all re sponsibility of becoming an ally of the United States in the war with Spain. It is realized that if Spain had suffi cient force in the Pacific the Hawaiian Islands would be attacked. It is furth er realized that, after having allowed the United States to use Honolulu as a coaling station in the present war, if this Government should become invol ved in hostilities with any other power having naval forates in the Pacific, that power would take possession of the Hawaiian Islands at once. In view of these facts the Adminis tration is hopeful that the annexation of Hawaii to the United States will be accomplished without delay, by ratifi cation of the pending treaty by the Senate or by the passage of a joint resolution. The House Committee on Foreign Affairs will" tomorrow resume consid eration of Newlands' resolution for the annexation of the Islands, and there is little doubt that it will be favorably reported to the House, where it will receive early consideration and prob ably be agreed to on Thursday. It is suggested that the House take no ac tion in regard to annexation until after the Senate had exhausted all its re sources by voting on the annexation treaty. As, however, there is no possi bility of a two-thirds vote for the treaty being secured in the Senate, it is not probable that there wrill be any delay on this account. Additional impetus may be given the movement for immediate annexation tomorrow by an official offer from Ha waii for a transfer of the Islands to the United States for the purposes of the war with Spain. It was announced in a press dispatch some days ago that President Dole had sent a communica tion to this Government making such an offer. Mr Hatch did not receive anything by telegraph from San Fran cisco relating to such an offer, but mail which arrived by the steamer which brought the press dispatch to San Francisco reached Washington today. As the Minister was absent in New York, this mail will riot be opened un til his return tomorrow, when, if it contains an offer from President Dole to transfer the Islands to the United States, it will be at once communicated to the State Department. The first use of Honolulu as a coal ing and supply station will be made by the cruiser Charleston and the supply ships which she is to convoy to Manila. This expedition is to start from San Francisco next week and the Adminis IS OFF IIAYTI. Admiral Sampson Awaits Arrival of Spanish Fleet. NEW YORK, May S. The Herald s Washington correspondent sends the following: Cable advices received from Rear Admiral Sampson announce his arriv al off the cuast of Hayti yesterday with a division of his fleet. He will remain at the point wher he is now located until the department or one of the scouts informs him of the apear ance of the Spanish men-of-war, which sailed from St. Vincent nine days ago. Although press reports have been pub lished announcing that " the Spanish fleet has arrived at San Juan and off Martinique, the department has heard nothing from the American liners act ting as scouts confirming such reports, and the Consular officers of this Gov ernment in the West Indies are silent. The officers are under instructions to report to the Department of State any reliable information of the presence of any Spanish men-ofwar. INVASION POSTPONED. Victory ou the Atlantic Will He Awaited. TAMPA, Fla., May 8 Capt. J. H. Miley, senior aid de camp to Major General Shaffer, left Tampa very quietly last night for Washington to report to General Miles. Captain Miley will return to Tampa immediately after his mission is ac complished. The work of preparing the transports has been delayed a good deal by the non-arrival of material, and it will be Wednesday, perhaps later, before this work is accomplished. But outside of the delay in the prepar ations, no American troops will be landed on Cuban soil until the ques tion of superiority in the Atlantic is settled between Admiral Sampson's squadron and the Spanish fleet, and settled decisively. High army officials make this statement. They say it would be taking needless chances to send an army into Cuba be fore te Spanish fleet is disposed of, and until the meeting of the American and Spanish fleets takes place no one here believes orders to move will be received. THEY ARE PKEPARIXt;. Invasion of Cuba liy General Shatter llelnjr Mapped Out. NEW YORK, May 9 The Herald's Washington correspondent telegraphs: All necessary prepartions were made today in the War Department to send an army, consisting of both volunteers and regulars, of over 61,000 men to in vade Cuba. The first detachment of this army will be in Cuba by Sunday next and will immediately establish a base of supplies for United States troops. General Shatter, as soon as his first work has been accomplished, will im mediately send a report to the War De partment and orders will be sent by Secretary Alger to General Wade, who wrill be in command of 45,000 troops concentrated at Tampa, Mobile and New Orleans, to at once begin the transportation of his army to join the command of General Shafter. Prepara tions for having a sufficient number of transports on hand at these three points are being rushed by the quarter master general of the army. Not the slightest difficulty is expected from this source. No Spanish Ship Sighted ST. PIERRE, Martinique, May S . The story sent out from here yester day that five Spanish vessels, supposed to be part of the Cape Verde fleet, had been sighted off here, was found, on investigation, to be unfounded. The TVmerarlo Sails. BUENOS AYRES, May S. Advices from the Herald's correspondent in Montevideo state that the Spanish war ship Temerario sailed froml there at noon today.

Commo dore Dewey's official report to Secre tary Long consisted of two dispatches one from Manila and the other from Cavite as follows: "MANILA, May 1. The squadron ar rived at daybreak this morning. I im mediately enegaged the enemy and de stroyed the following Spanish vessels: Reina Cristina, Castilla, Ulloa, Isle de Cuba, Genrela Lozo, the Duero, Correo, Velasco, Mindanao, one transport and the water battery at Cavite. The squadron is uninjured, and only a few men were slightly wrounded. The on ly means of telegraphing is to the Am erican Consul 'at Hongkong. I shall communicate with him. "DEWEY." "CAVITE, May 4. I have taken pos session of the naval station at Cavite, on the Philippine Islands. Have de stroyed the fortifications at the bay entrance. Parolled the , garrisons. I control the bay completely and can take the city at any time. The squad ron is in excellent health and spirits. The Spanish loss is not fully known, but is very heavy. At least 150 were killed, including the captain of the Reina Cristina. I am assisting in pro tecting the Spanish sick and wounded. Two hundred and fifty-six wounded are in hospitals within our lines. There is much excitement at Manila. I will protect the foreign residents. "DEWEY." Dewe) 's Synopsis. MONDAY, April 25. Received news of the declaration of war. Quitted British waters. WEDNESDAY Sailed for Manila at fastest speed that could be made with coal supply for ships. SATURDAY NIGHT Passed the batteries at the entrance of Manila Bay. 1 SUNDAY Sank, burned or captured all the ships of the Spanish squadron, silence and destroyed three batteries. MONDAY Occupied navy-yard. Blew up six batteries at the entrance to the bay. Cut the cable. Establish ed blockade of Manila. Drove Span ish forces out of Cavite. TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY Swept the lower bay and entrance for torpedoes. Gave crews well-earned rest. Prepared official dispatches. The losses of the Spaniards include ten warships, several torpedo boats, two transports, navy-yard and nine batteries. Including the losses ashore about 1,200 Spaniards were killed or wound ed. The estimated value of the Spanish property destroyed or captured is $6. 000,000. On the American side the total loss is eight men wounded and $5,000 dam age to ships. ONLY EIGHT MEX INJURED. All Were From the Raltlmore and Were Known Here. Eight men of Admiral Dewey's fleet, were slightly injured. Some were well known in Honolulu. They were: Lieu tenant Frank W. Kellogg, Ensign R. W. Barlow, R. P. Coreit, W. O. Keefe, R. Ricciardelli, E. Snellgrore. The only one of the American ves sels to receive a serious injury and perhaps serious is too strong a word was the Baltimore. In the second en gagement she was hit by several shots, and her machinery was damaged enough to cause her to withdraw from the engagement for about an hour in order that temporary repairs might be made She returned to the fight, how- ever, and after victory had been won her mechanics were soon able to make the necessary repairs. Death or Knulueer Kaudall. WASHINGTON, May 7. A cable gram received from the commander of the McCulloch states that Chief En gineer F. B. Randall died May 1. It is supposed that his death was due to excitement during the battle. ' Cable Was Cut. The cable was cut by Admiral Dew ey at a point fifteen miles from Ma nila, at the entrance of the bay. There will be no difficulty in getting the ca ble. Admiral Dewey having taken the precaution of buoy both of the cut ends. MORE WO.Ulv FOlt DEWEY. Several Poluts In Manila Remain to He Conquered. NEW YORK, May 8. The Herald's Washington correspondent telegraphs: In anticipation of the dispatch of troops to Manila, the Commissary General of Subsistence has directed the preparation and shipment to San Francisco of 60,000 rations, sufficient to last 5,000 ment four months. The cruiser Charleston, it was defi nitely determined by the Naval War Board today, will not start for the Philippines before next week, so that she will act as a convoy to the troops and supply ships. Acting Admiral Dewey, the conquer or of Manila, still has considerable work to perform before the destruction of Spanish power in the Far East Is complete. Iloilo, capital of the Island of Panay, which Is fortified and gar risoned by Spanish troops, remains to be taken, and there are one or two points In the Philippines which the guns of his fleet will be called upon to reduce. Confident, however, that Spain's power In the Philippines has been broken by the victory of Manila, the authorities have directed Rear Ad miral Dewey to remain with his squad ron in the harbor, where he is now an chored, until the troops which will be sent to his assistance reach their des tination. . PROGRAM FOR MANILA. l'laa of Government Discussed Hy the abinet. NEW YORK, May 9. The Washing ton correspondent of the Herald sends the following: Some desultory discus sion occurred at the Cabinet meeting today as to the character of the gov ernment that should be given to the Philippines. The cabinet had been called together by the President, in ac cordance with his usual custom, to read over his message to Congress on the battle of Manila Bay, and when the reading was concluded the talk turned to the establishment of some sort of government in the Islands. A proposition was made to form a com mission, consisting of Rear Admiral Dewey, Consul Wildman at Hongkong and Consul Williams, formerly at Ma nila, who would administer a govern ment of the Islands, but it was not i adopted.
