September 13.-A special to the Herald from Washington says: The senate of the national legislature of the republic of Hawaii has by thl, time ratified the treaty of annexation to the United States. The assertion was .. 1 . o.,i,.. w... r, i r:n Thurston, charge d'affaires to the United Stales. Mr. Thurston said that the senate of the Hawaiian legislature had been called to assemble on Septem ber S, and that it is unanimous for an nexation.

I li Is believed in administration circles that the effect of the ratification of the treaty by the Hawaiian senate will Tie to Influence some of the members of the j United States senate now ln the doubtful j column to vote for the convention next j session All that is now necessary is thej approval of that body, and It Is not be- , lieved that many members will lie willing ' to shoulder the responsibility of defeat-' ing annexation and thus throw Hawaii into the hnnds of Japan. j The authorities would naturally be pleased to have the controversy pending between Hawaii and Japan settled, be-1 cause such settement would tend to re- 1 move any objection which might be en-j tertalned by senators to bring Into the 1 United States a nation which has dlplo- matic differences with any country. It is their opinion, however, thai the mat ter will not be adjudicated until after annexation is accomplished. THE GREAT FAIR WILL CASE. A Rig Job on the Hands or the Jury San Francisco.

WILL NOT BE AGGRESSIVE Ue's rritsda Say Me 1 Tjking aa Citirel Nt Tici-lnirget Ire Now oi Top. Washington, September 11 President McKlnley Is expected to reach the White House thla evening. Almost Immediately thereafter he will hold an Important con- fertxice with Consul-General Lee. The opinion is generally expressed thavt the president's return at this time U almost solely to have a talk with the representa tive of the United States at Havana pending a comparatively rapid unfolding o! the administration's Cuban policy. It la said that the consul-general returns home as the result of a special request for his presence. Until be haa seen the president and talked over the situation he declines to talk for publication. So far as has been developed the pres ident's Cuban policy is for from an ag gressive one. Up to date It undoubtedly consists of a tender to Spain ot the good offices of the United States, coupled with an intimation that this country would be pleased to see autonomy on tbe Cana dian plan granted to Cuba at once. General Lee, as has been stated, win not be Interviewed on the subject but some of his dose friends say that In private conversation he Is taalng tMt H " " opening now for the active interference 01 ln " ' released nearly rH the Amerlc.n pnsoner. con8 ha re,towd tne ta 0f h u(r"r,n concendrado, in the towns. 1 American interests have already been destroyed, so that there Is really no com mercial reason for interference. Genera Lee says that his friends and he will represent to the president that the Insurgents are now on top and will certainly achieve their own salvation without assistance. General Leo believe Spain has lost the Island beyond recov- err. Under the circumstances, it la me ami tne laca 01 ctoines ana iowu suu- able for the climate. Today Minister Woodford is expected to present his credentials to the queen regent of Spain at San Sebastian, Wheth er or not he presents also tho note which he carried with him from Washington depends solely upon General Woodford himself. The time at which the rota is to be presented was left to the dis cretion of the minister. THE CUBAN QUESTION. New York. September 13.
