Tt provides for annexation without exact condi tions on the part of the Hawaiians as 'to the form of government to be vouchsafed to Hawaii, leaving that question to be entirely disposed of by the Government of the l ulled States. The United States will agree, how ever, to assume the debt of the pres eut Hawaiikn government, but will come into possession of ail Hawaiian crown lands and other possessions. Several senators have received defi nite information concerning the exist ence of the treaty and are acquainted With its terms, though they refuse to discuss the matter. Knowledge of the existence of the treaty has been communicated to members of the com mittee on foreign relations and also to members of the finance committee. The approval of the committee on foreign relations is assured, as eight members of the committee have ap proved its terms. This will enable the committee to speedily report the treaty to the senate, and the matter ■sms 'ivc 1 " taken •■wp the tariff bill is disposed of.
