Wants ta Onan Ftrc m Hawaii, bat Is Held Down. WashisgtoS, Dec, 22. The Hawaiian matter figured prominently In the last ses sion of the house before the holiday recess. Ikm telle and Blair each offered resolutions, the former calling on the secretary of the navy for instruction wheneby the admiral in charge of the naval forces at Honolulu was placed under the command of Com missioner Blount and the warrant tbare for; the latter instructing the . foreign af fairs committee to investigate the questions of fact relative to the Hawaiian revolution. The substitute for the Hitt and II outella resolutions was also presented by the chair man of the foreign affairs committee. The speaker insisted that Boutelle's reso lution should go to the naval committee, while Boutelle insisted on the right to dis cuss it. The speaker said discussion could only proceed under unanimous consent, and Boutelle asked that consent, only to meet with prompt objection from a Mary land member. Then Blair took a hand with his resolution, and the Democrats were again on their feet, and Talbott in sisted on it going to committee. Reed came in nt this point. "The gentleman teems to be very shy about the truth in his matter," ejaculated he. ou won't And us shy when the proper time comes," retorted Talbott. Next came ti foreign a flairs committee's substitute on Hawaii, and, McCreary, chairman, wanted to make a statement. tvluth the sneaker sat down upon. Mc Creary asked for unanimous consent, but was cut off by Blair who declared, "I will object to everything." And the speaker, in spite of Boutelle's protests (for here was he chance Boutelle was anxious for, to gut the subject up), insisted that nothing was in order but the call of committee. The ipeakcr also decided thata resolution from the foreign affairs commitVee by going to be calendar lost its privileges. This was hotly opposed by Boutelle. "If an impeachment resolution was reported in this manner," said he, "if the theory of the sneaker it correct, by the action of the speaker referring it, it wonld lose its priv ileged characier. The speaker's interposi tion would deprive the house of its highest prerogative." While Boutelle was pro ceeding with a great deal of force and some display of temper the speaker again cut him short by directing the clerk to con tinue the call of committees. Then Spring er wanted to go into committee of the whole on the New Mexico statehood bill by unanimons consent, but Blair objected and that about ended business far the day. THE ISSUE ON HAWAII. It Takes Partiaan I'orat fader These Twe Declarations. Washington, Dec. . The house com mittee on foreign affairs has decided to re port a sulistitute for the Hitt and Boutelle Hawaiian resolutions. The following is the substitute: "Whereas, It appear from executive communications sent to the house of representatives, that the Cuited States minUter and the T'nited States naval forces at Honolulu exceeded . , their authority in January, 1KB, and illeg. ally aided in overthrowing the constitu tional government of Hawaii and setting up in its place a provisional government not Republican in fom and in opposition to the will of a majority of the people of nawmi; therefore "Resolved, that it Is the sense of this house that such intervention by the gov- ernment of the United States, its repre sentatives or armed forces, was contrary to the policy and traditions of our republic and the spirit of our constitution and should be and is emphatically cou- UemueO." Storer offered a substitute which em bodies the views of the minority: "Where as, executive communications to congress disclose that the executive department has been furnishing to a minister plenipoteuti' ary of the United States secret instructions to conspire with the representatives and agents of a deposed and discarded mon archy for tlie overthrow of a friendly re publican government, duly recognised by all the civilized nations to which said min ister' was accredited, and to which his pub lie instructions pledged th good fuijb and sympathy of the president, the govern ment and the peopte of thl United States; Resolved. That it is UK sense of this house that any such intelk-ention by the executive of the United Sthtes, its civil or military representatives or officers, with out authority of congress is a dangerous and unwarranted invasion of the rights and dignities of the congress of the United htatcs, and a violation of the law of na tions; and further, that the manner of such attempted intervention by the executive and methods used are unworthy of the ex ecutive department of the United States while the confessed intent of such inter vention is contrary to the policy and tradi tions of the republic and the spirit of the constitution." - Stanton Oets a Chatee Job, Washington', Dec 23.
