By Telegraph to The New. -
Washington, July 28. The
startling news that Great Britain
has seized one of the Hawaiian Is
lands has been received by Secretary
of State Sherman from Minister
Sewall, at Honolulu. The island i$
known as Palmyra Island and is one
of the uninhabited, islands to the
southwest of Hawaii. Tne seizure
is doubly significant in view of the
information that was received at the
State Department on Monday.
Owing to the grave importance
which the seizure may assume, in
view of the pending treaty for the
annexation of the islands by the
United States, an effort was made
to keep the matter secret. The
message was wired from San Fran
cisco by the dispatch agent of the
State Department stationed there
who had received it from Minister
Sewall. It merely contains a bare
statement of the seizure of Palmyra.
