propositions regarding the Hawaiian
treaty under consideration by the sennit
tliiimce committee. They Include the en
dorsement or the Pavis amendment and
coiillnuliiK the present treaty In force,
without reservation, a suggestion to the
president that a new treaty should be
negotiated, modifying the terms of the
existing Mgr. fin. 111. so as to rentier them
less partial to Haw nil. and a proposition
lonkliiir to tho giving of 11 year's notice
to the Hawaiian government of the abro

This latter proKislilon Is understood
to originate with Senator Al li lch. and
Is, antagonized by the special champions
