THK EX-QUEEN'S POLICY.
It Is generally understood that tbeex
queen's policy, should she be restored,
would be one of general amnesty, with
the exception of a tew men, at the bead
of the provisional government. The
annexutlouihts claim that l he ex queen
will never have a cDance to display
either good will or hatred toward these
men so long as there Is an American
alive in Hawaii. The ill health of
President Dole Is causing much anx
iety. Among the annexationists the
Idea of forming a commonwealth in
Hawaii. In case the present government
is left upon its own resources, is taking
deep root. Tbis afternoon, the minis
ter of Finance presented a report
which shows the financial condition of
the government Is lu a most prosperous
