the expected failed to materialize The
expected political debate on the Federal
elections law repeal was nvertcd by Mr
Hill acqulcsclns In the suggestion of Mr
Hoar that tho bill be referred to the com
mittee on privileges nnd elections On tho
other hand no one expected the debnto on
tho Hawaiian question until the resolu
tion calling for information ogrced to by
the senate last week was complied nltli
by the executive Today however Mr
Hoar submitted another resolution calllmr
upon the picsldent for specific anincr s to
the questions which literally complied
with vould hy before tho nenato and the

Mr Hoar commented upon the fact
tlut Information hod been communicated
by tho president to certain senators under
tho sett of confidence which had been free
ly given cut to tho iepr < ontnttvc ot four
newspjpers known to be zealous thor
ough going lie had almost sold unscrupu
lous Hiippoitcrs of the administration
It that allegation Is irue mid Mr Hoar
It seemed to him ss gross a violation of
the constitution as was ever charged upon
or Imputed to iny publto ofllclul It was
not necessary to say to the senate or to
tne administration that the attempt to
usurp tno power of appointing or Com
missioning such an otllcer without consent
of the senito was nn attempt to usurp all
the diplomatic relations of the sovorn
Ji Hoar read the Associated Press cv
besrims from London In which Minister
Haynrd ex lessed his opinion on the Ha
waiian question Ho said It that dispatch
were true it was nlso true that Ureal
llrltalu had been taken Into that conll
dehca with the administration the sen
ato nnd tho American jieople had not
shared It It were true that the president
the senato being lb session had nuthoilred
nn otllcer to uxeiclse paramount dlplo
matla authority In another country with
which tho United Stntes was nt ponce di
rected the consul nnd lesldent minister
to promote his success by every means In
bis power placed the arehUes under his
complete nnd untrammelled control mt
thorleed him Jo employ at his discretion
the naval power mid to land or withdraw
the forces ot the United Stntes at will
and had given hlm the title whlrli was
enumerated as one ot the titles of dli lo
matlc officers In nn net of congress tho
president was standing In Mr Hoars
judgment upon very slippery ground nnd
had belltr step on terra llrma rapidly nud
at once
If In the next place such an ofllclul
had entered that territory anil established
correspondence with private persons about
Its public nttalrs taking testimony hid
written communications receiving written
communications and making replies there
to that otllcer had violated in a most
gross nnd Impalpable manner the express
wilttcn law ot the Ameiienn people nnd
It he had reported that action to tho pres
ident and It was approved tho president
hod mndo himself an decompiles after the
fact In that violation ot the law He the
president wan standing upon not only
slippery but very thin gtound especially
If after that act of this public commis
sion ho proceeded to decorate him with a
new diplomatic appointment
The ostrich said Mr Hear puts
Its head In tho snnd nnd thinks It will
not bo seen The rhlnneerois bides In tho
mud puddle nnd breathes through Its nose
nnd thinks It will not be seen but neither
ot these nre lit and bultnblo precedents
for tho executive of tho United States
The people have the right to know
wish to know and will know let me say
to my honoiablc friend tho truth In this
Mr Oray Dem ot Delaware said ho
did not Intend to be drawn Into n dla
cusslon of tho Hawaiian matter even It
tho senator from Massachusetts could
not restrain lilmselt from Indnlgenco in
his habit of scolding the admlnlslratlo
belonging to n Ttrtj opposite tnhltijostt
Ho said Hoar had scolded oil tlirou
Mr Clevelands llrst ndmlnlstiatlon and
scolded him back Into tho While House
He did not think tho senator from Massa
chusetts would gain anything from tho
sober second thought ot tho American
people by putting up hypothetical cases
In legard to which lie was to deliver him
self of the well conned vituperative
phases v lib which ho entertained tho sen
ate this morning nor did he think our
honored representative nt tho court of St
James would take much detriment by
his shute of scolding
Mi Gray sild he thought It would hive
been belli r tuslo nil mound It the Benator
from Massachusetts had walled until tho
official Information asked for a few rtn > s
ago had come lo the sunato Ho wanted
to know whether tl o statements tho son
ator from Massachusetts alluded to with
which tho public press has been filled for
weeks past weru Indeed true whilher
It was a fact that tho flag of the United
States had been djsgrucid and dishonored
by a superservlcable ngent of the govern
ment and made tn sjmbollzo an net of
piracy for which every honorable Ameri
can ought to hang his heml in shame
to use the hypothetical language ot the
senator from Massachusetts It was < ery
well for the senator from Massachusetts
and others who ngreed with him to ask
those who disagreed with them ngnln
and again to avert their gaze from what
wns Bnld to have oceuired on those iRlnnds
Mr Hoar objected lo Mr Grnys rlvliig
to his remarks tho character of u scolding
After somo further discussion tho resolu
tion went over until tomorrow

Hint the train had left the main track
Ho Immediately applied the nlr brakes
and brought It to nn easy stopgo caey
