manufactured sugars, were completed,
with the exception of the paragraphs
on hides, gloves, coal and some lesser
articles, which went over. This an-

was taken up at 2 P- M. and completed
in three hours. Early in the day the
wool and silk schedules went over with
an agreement that wool would lie taken
up tomorrow. A fter that the tobacco

the bill, as w ell as many isolated para

Tiie following is the text of the mes

“ I transmit hereby to the senate, in
order that after due consideration tiie
constitutional function of advice and

a treaty for annexation of tiie republic
of Hawaii to the United States, signed
by plenipotentiaries of the parties on
June 16. For a better understanding
of the subject I transmit in addition
the report of tiie secretary of state, re
viewing negotiations which have led
to this important result.
“ The incorporation of the Hawaiian
islands into a body poltious is a neces
sary and fitting sequel to the chain of
events which from an early period of
our historv has controlled the inter
course and prescribed the associations
of the United States and the Hawaiian
islands. The predominance of Am eri
can interests in that neighboring terri
tory was first asserted in 1820 by send
ing to the islands a representative of
the United States. It found further
expression by the signature of a treaty
of friendship, commerce and navigation
with the king in 1826. It was signally
annouced in 1843, when the interven
tion of the United States caused the
British government to disavow tiie
seizure of the Sandwich islands by a
Britisli naval commander, and to recog
nize them by treaty as an independent
state, renouncing forever any pur ¡«iso
of annexing the islands or exerting
a protectorate over them.
“ In 1851 tiie cession of tiie Hawaiian
kingdom to tiie United States was for
mally offered, and although not then
accepted, this government proclaimed
it its duty to preserve alike the honor
and dignity of the United States and
safety of the government of the H a
From this time until
the outbreak o f tiie war of 1861 tiie
policy of the United States toward Ha
waii and the Hawaiian sovereign
towards tiie United States was exem
plified by continued negotiations for
annexation or for a reciprocal commer
cial union. The latter alternative was
at length accomplished by the reciproc
ity treaty of 1875, the provisions of
which were renewed by tiie convention
of 1884, embracing tiie perpetual cession
to the United States of tiie harbor of
‘ ‘ In 1888 a proposal for a joint guar
anty of tiie neutrality of the Hawaiian
islands by tiie United States, Germany
and Great Britain was declined on tiie

from 1820 to 1896 the course of tiie
United States toward tiie islands lias

welfare with the exclusion of all for

as a necessary outcome of tiiat policy.
“ N ot only is a union of the Ha
waiian territory to tiie United States
no new scheme, but it is the inevit
able consequence of the relation stead
fastly maintained with that mid-Pacific
domain for three-quarters o f a century.
Its accomplishment lias been merely a
question of time. W hile its failure in
1893 may not be a cause for congratula
tion, it is certainly a proof of the dis
interestedness of the United States, tiie
delay o f four years having abundantly
sufficed to establish the right and abil
