TO OCCUPY HAWAII. CHICAGO, May 19. A special from Washington says: It is probable that American troops will soon be occupy ing Hawaii. President McKinley agrees with all callers that the tem porary occupation of the Philippines is out of the question. Whether we de sire it or not, we will be compelled to retain the islands for a long time, if not permanently. More troops than now decided on will have to be sent to Manila in course of several months. This contingency appeals to the ad ministration with such force that the advisability of making Hawaii a base for, both army and naval operations has been discussed. It is not known at what time the American commander in the Philippines might need addi tional men. The distance between San Francisco and Manila might endanger American prestige and many lives. To offset this possibility it is proposed to send probably 10,000 volunteers to Ha waiithere to be held in reserve. They could be trained there and from that point could be sent to Manila twenty days earlier than they could if kept in the United States. The climate of Ha waii is excellent. No finer point could be selected for organizing, drilling and eauipping raw recruits ana getting them into shape for active field service. ANNEXATION. NEW YORK, May 19 A Washing on special to the Herald says: Sena tors who are opposed to Hawaiian an nexation are now trying to prevent action by the House of Representa tives on Newlands' resolution. Since that resolution has been re ported ,to the House plain intimations have been conveyed to Chairman Hitt of the Foreign Affairs Committee that if the House should pass the resolu tion the enemies of annexation in the Senate would retaliate by holding up the war revenue bill indefinitely. Pct- tigrew of South Dtkota is the Senator who has taken the lead in this movement. On the other hand the more earnest advocates of annexation in the Senate have intimated that action by the House on the Newlands resolution would accelerate the passage of the war revenue bill. There are apparent- v rlanererous complications between the annexation resolution and the war revenue bill, whichever course is taken in the House. Advance orders filled as received from the wharf.

Gear, chairman of the House Finance Committee, said yesterday that a supplement report would be made at once in the matter of export ing Postal Savings accounts. Mr. Gear said a rather wrong impression had unfortunately been given by the first report. As a matter of fact the so-called '"shortages" were duly en tered and the financial responsibility assumed. In each case of a "shortage" or error of 100 on two separate days, the mistake was made by a subordinate clerk in the bureau. The force has been too small for a long time. Only a few men of the Charleston crew will have shore liberty. REWARD OF MERIT. At the CHICAGO CYCLE SHOW in 1S97, each visitor on entering the Saow was handed a coupon reading as below: "After viewing the exhibits, kindly fill in the name of the Bicycle which pleases you best as regards beauty and mechanical merit, and deposit the coupon in ballot box near exits. Name of Bicycle, " The "Shirk" received 17.1S9 ballots against 12,377 the next 'highest. When it is known that all the leading makes of wheels in the United States were on exhibition at this Show, the above speaks for itself. The HONOLULU BICYCLE CO. have secured the Agency for this strictly high grade wheel. IT WILL INTEREST YOU TO CALL AND SEE IT. The SHIRK is the best thing that ever happened. E. I. JOB DAK ft!0.

Contrary to expectations the base ball games become better ana uetter every Saturday, ine nununuus to have awakened from their state of lethargy and are now doing all they can to win the championship for this season. The enthusiasts are hoping for an even number of games on each side at the end of the season and a depen dence of the championship on the last game. The contest of Saturday was a nretty one. The first two or tnree m- - . . l,fV, nings were iun oi errors uu uum sides, but the remainder of the game was a nleasant contrast. Ihe score stood 8 to 7 in favor of the Honolulus. The last inning was played under protest on account of a decission against the Regiments. There was a great discussion m the last inning when the Regiments went to the bat. Wilder was on second base and Lishman was on first. There was no one out and things did Iook as if the Regiments would at least tie the score. Gorman went to the bat and knocked an infield fly which was muffed bv Jackson. According to the rules, Gorman was out on account of the two bases being occupied. How ever Umpire Flint called Lishman as well as Gorman, out because as he claimed the former ran to second and the ball was thrown to first before he could get back. Flint would not change his decision. He admitted that when the flv was muffed by Jackson and Wilder ran to third, that he had order ed the latter back again to second. Umpire Soper was on the side of the Regiments and declared that the only man out was the batter. The Regi ments claimed that when Wilder was orrlpred back to second, all play stop ped and Lishman was safe, although he had started to second and failed to get back to first before the ball was delivered there. The Regiments will nrnlmhlv nsk for a meeting of the League to decide the point. Harrv Whitney, the old official urn pire, stated after the game that Gor man was the only man out and that Flint was mistaken when he called Lishman out., for Wilder had been or dered back to second by both urn nires and all play was therefore stop ped. The score of the game by inning; was as follows: 1234 5 07 S 9 Resiment 0610 0 000 07 Honolulu 2 2 0 0 4 0 0 0 S r Roman Stripes and Plaids in SASH RIBBONS A Specialty.
