Hawaiian Affairs to Furnish the Chief Topic
This Week in the Senate.
IT IS THE PARAMOUNT SUBJECT
Mr. Frye Will Try to Get His Resolu
tion to a Vote Consternation of the
Democratic Members Over the Po
sition Which Mr. Cleveland's In
structions to Mr. Willis and That
Minister's Action in Honolulu Have
Placed the Party Before the Country.
Washington, Jan. 7.
T CANNOT be recorded that the
first week of (ha session of con
gress after the holiday recess has
marked auy sensible advance to
wards the disposition of important
matters pending before emigres, but it
is expected by the party managers that
the coming week will witness at least a
beginning of the consideration of the
tariff bill in the houe, and the bill to
repeal the federal elections laws In the
It is expected that the subjsct of our
Hawaiian relation will make its re
appearance in the senate very prompt
ly for the opportunity standi open in
the shape of two resolutions which lie
undisposed of on the vice president's
table One of these is the i rye reso
lution declaring; that there should be
no interference by the UuitediStntes
In Hawaii pending the conclusion of
the investigation now being mad' by
the senate committee on foreign rela
tions, and it is expected that Mr.
Frye, who is a member of the commit
tee will hare some remarks to deliver
ou this subject.
BLOUNT AND HIS AUTHOUITV.
The second rsolutiou is that intro
duced by Mr. Hoar calling for a state
ment of the expenditures made by Mr.
Blount and the authority therefor.
Mr. Frye intends to try an I force his
resolution to a vote tomorrow. Sena
tor Davis, of Minnesota, proposes to
deliver a set speech on the Hawaiian
situation during the week. While this
senator is a nieinber of the committee
on foreign relations, and consequently
has snperior me.BB of information, it
is understood that he will not avail
himself of this opportunity in prepar
ing his speech, b;-tug au lnsistant ad
vocate for the preservation of commit
tee room secrets.
Congress will await with great inter
est the receipt of the president's mes
sage announcing the new phase of the
Hawaiian situation, and the hope is
expressed that the president will learn
a lesson by his past experience and be
more frank than heretofore, and nut
bold back any of the instructions that
were saut to Minister Willis, and the
r plies received from him. It is well
understood now that the so-called in
structions communicated to congress
in his message, were merely official
skeletons, and that the minister all the
timo was acting under secret orders,
which, of course, will not appear in
the published documents.
MINISTER mUU' CONDUCT.
The only explanation of Minister
Willis' conduct since the message was
read to congress that seems at all rea
sonable is that he acted either under a
misunderstanding of the latest instruc
tions sent him or th tt his action was
taken before the arrival of thoCorwtn
nt Honolulu bearing dispatches to him
announcing the fact that the president
had referred the whole case to con
gress. At the department even those
who are sr Bevero in the criticism of
Minister Willis as to suggest that his
recall will follow this new development
in the Hawaiian situation are inclined
to believe that he will take no further
steps and has taken none since calling
upon the provisional government to re
sign. In congress there is, of course, no
hope for the president and the secre
tary or stite. I heir policy will be
condemned and repudiated promptly
and effectively. As for Queen Liliou
kalani it is thought that ahe will be
justified in presenting a heavy claim
for damages against the United States
Representative Ruyner, of Maryland,
who claims to have been selected by
the president and Secretary Oresham
to prepare and deliver an argumont in
the house sustaining the administra
tion's theory that Minister Stevens was
the lender of the conspiraoy to over
throw the queen, may have to revise
RAYNER NOW AT SKA.
He was proceeding under the impres
sion that no action had been taken by
the present administration, that is.that
no overt act hud been committed by
Minister Willis at the instance of the
president and Secretary (Jresham. He
was preparing himself to show that
Minister Stevens had exceeded his au
thority nu representative of theUnited
States, but Mr. Rayner also intended
that the policy of the present adminis
tration should be to keep hands off and
leave Hawaiians to adjust their own
Representative Otitbwaite, one of
the leading Democrats in the home, by
renson of his membership on the com
mittee on rnles, expressed his regret
that the administration had become in
volved in this disagreeable business
In his opinion th president might have
saved himself and the country a great
deal of unnecessary trouble had be
bsen content to simply withdraw from
the senate the proposed treaty of an
nexation and recalled Minister Stevens.
The latter might have been succeeded
by a minister credited to the "Govern
ment of Hawaii'' with instructions to
patiently await until the people of the
Hand wish islands settled among them
selves the form of government they in
tended to establish.
The programme in the house this
week is quite simple and distinct. As
soon ns the Democrats present a voting
qnornm the pending order for the
consideration of the Wilson bill will
be adopted and that measure will be
the business bejore the house until it
shall have been disposed of by a vote.
