WASHINGTON, Feb. a vote of 36 to 25 the Senate tbia afternoon took action in favor of the proposed Ha- waiian cable. Twenty-four of the twenty-five voting in the negative were Democrats, the one Republican was Pettigrew of South Dakota. Of tboae who voted in the affirmative twenty-seven Republicans, six Demo- crats and three Populists. At first it was feared that the Senate would be divided on party lines, most of the speeches in opposition being from Democrats, and those in favor of the measure being from the Republicans. Senator White of California, was one of the Democrats who voted in the affirmative. WASHINGTON, Feb. 9 the de- cisive vote of 36 to 26 the Senate decided today to inaugurate the pro- ject of laying a cable from the Pacific Coast to Hawaii. An amendment to the diplomatic and consular appro- Eriation was made, giving for eginntng work on the cable and authorizing the President to contract for the entire work, estimated to cost This was the first practical result coming from the intermittent Hawaiian debate, lasting more than a year, and renewed with intensity the last week in connection with the proposed cable. WASHINGTON, Feb. diplo- motic appropriation bill will probably go to the House on Monday for con- ference in Senate amendments. As conference reports are privileged, it will doubtless cause immediate con- sideration. There will be a hot fight In the House on this cable amend- ment. It will be strongly opposed by McCreary, chairman of the Commit- tee on Foreign Affairs, by Hooker, member of that committee, by Chair- man Bayers of the Appropriations Committee, and other leading Demo- crats. The flgbt for it will be led by HIM, the ranking Republican member of Foreign Afiairs Committee. Bo.'jfelle of Maine, aud the entire Re- publican side will support it" WASHINGTON, Feb. Csesar Moreno, well known here and in San Francisco, is again trying to secure an extension of the cable charter granted himself, Leland Stanford, Senator Miller, Hopkins, Alvord, Flood, Irwin and others in 1876. Mo- reno asserts that the House will never grant a subsidy or appropriate any money for building the cable, but thinks they may renew his charter. He has been actively working upon McCreary, Hooker and other members of the House. Moreno does not exert much influence, however. WASHINGTON, Dec. 11. bill to incorporate the International Pacific Cable Company, for a cable from Cali- fornia to the Hawaiian Islands and thence to Japan and other points in the Pacific and the mainlands of Asia and Australia, was introduced in the House today by Representative Chas. W. Stone, of Pennsylvania. The incorporators are William Al- vord, Samuel T. Alexander, Hugh Craig, W. H. Dimond, Alfred 8. Hart- well, Edward B. Pono, Jonn C. Irwin, Ray btone, A, C. Hawes, Herman Oelrichs, Charles R. Bishop, G. W. McNear, Louis B. Parrott, W. M. Buckner, C. I. Taylor, O. D. Baldwin, Henry F. Allen, W. J. Adams, John D. Spreckels. The bill proposes to give the com- pany the right to hold the requisite connections in the land offices ami stations, and to exercise such powers as may be granted by any other gov- ernment, with the provision that nothing in the action shall be con- strued to commit the United States Government to any financial liability or guarantee of carrying out its con- tracts. The capital stock is to amount to in shares of each, with the right to increase the stock to 200.000 shares by a vote of two thirds of the stock, and the shareholders are to organize when of stock has been subscribed for and 10 per cent, of j the subscription paid in. Nine direc- I tors are to constitute the board, to I serve three years and hold their meet- j ings in the United Slates. The bill I includes an authorization for 5 per cent, bonds to the amount of 000, to constitute a first lien on the property and provide for an annual report of the company's affairs to the Secretary of the Treasury. The cable project has been the work of Admiral John C. Irwin, who re- j cently retired from active femre, and at whose request Mr. .stone Introduced the bill. Admiral Irwln eive interests In Hawaii and Of the other incoiporatorn Hurt well is a; prominent lawyer of Honolulu, who was In Washington in 1891, ing In the interests of a cable, R. Bishop Is the richest man on Uic Islands, Hugh Craig is a prominent New Zealand capita hat Johu 1) Hpreckels is a son of Clans and the others are prominent Califor- nia business men. It is understood the incorporates will endeavor to obtain subsidies from the governments interested, and will try to secure the patronage of the United States for their company. Keprtfaeuiative Stoue says ho la hear- tily lu fuvor of the Benatu provision for a cable survey, and does not think the plan for incorporation of thla com- pany need Interfere with the Govern- ment's course, or is necessarily antag- onistic to the Senate plan. The bill is the outcome of the pri- vate cable schemes of four years ago. The new company bad no connection with the cable amendment adopted by the Senate Saturday. That action means the construction of a submarine cable by the Government of the United States as a quasi-military work, bnt open to commercial busi- ness at regular rates, exactly as in the case of a postal telegraph system, should one ever be adopted. If the cable scheme which passed the Senate with flying colors should get through the House, which is somewhat doubtful, the new cable company will have nothing to do. If the Government cable scheme fails, the company will be on hand at the next session and the subsidy scheme will be pressed for all it Is worth. Senator Perkins, who was to have introduced a similar bill in the Sen- ate, said tonight: "I shall not intro- duce It until we dispose of the Senate amendment providing for an appro- priation of to begin work on a cable. It the Government will build a cable to Hawaii, of course we are willing to let it do so." Admiral Irwin, the originator of the project, said: "The American terminus will probably be in a small cove Dear Monterey, Cal., and run to Honolulu and thence directly to Japan, with a station on Midway Isl- and, owned by the United States, about a thousand miles west of Ha- waii on the direct road to Japan." Minister Tburston, of Hawaii, was waiting in the corridor for an oppor- tunity to talk with Representative Stone. He seemed to be very much pleased to learn that the bill bad been introduced. Speaking of the incor- porators, he said to the Chronicle cor- respondent that he knew several of the gentlemen interested in the pro- ject, and that they were all men of the highest business standing. .Hugh Craig, on being interviewed in regard to the bill, said: "Its object is to ask simply for permission to in- corporate under the laws of the United States and nothing else. No subsidy will be asked for. ''Having obtained this permission the Incorporators would then ask con- cessions from the Russian, French, Japanese and Hawaiian Governments in order to gather funds sufficient to lay the cable on such routes as are necessary. "Such concessions being obtained they will be in possession, when the next Congress meets, of all the ueoes- eary facts to lay before It to serve as arguments in favor of further assist- ance from the American Government. "The plan contemplated is to build ft connecting cable from Calif or- nia to Honolulu, thenco radiating to Japan and Australia. 'The Japanese Minister here inti- mated bis strong desire to assist the proposition and of communicating with his Government relative to the necessity of granting assistance. "The Russian and French legations have not yet been seen, but from the fact that the French already have a cable from Australia to New Cale- donia on a direct line to Honolulu, and from the further fact that the French in Honolulu recently informed the Hawaiian Government that such a company was anxious to proceed with its cable to Honolulu, shows the sympathy of the French Government, while the warm interest taken in the proposition by the Russian Govern- ment in '90 leads us to believe that subsidies can be obtained from both those governmental'__________ YALE HAWAIIAN CLUB.

He said that he aaw Knolowl, Kamali, Matli- Kahopu, Waiki and Kahanui at Kualawui, with arms and ammuni- tion. The case of George Markham was the next ou the list and occupied the greater part of the afternoon. Mark- bam defended himself mont of tlit time, with the help of Ka-n. Ins counsel. Marshal Hitchcock was tho ilrnt witness called to testify. Marshal Georgo Markham he has been in the employ of special secret police; was assigned to the residence of W. O. Smith 011 the Monday night before the Kakaako affair, did not see him again after that; had given him orders to report every day, either in person or by letter; had no communication from him after sending him to the residence of W. O. Smith first saw him agaiu on the Monday following the affair at Bertelmann's; locked him up on Mon- day afternoon; was forced to put another man in bis place on the night of the Kakaako affair. Cross-examined by Markham You have been in the employ of the police department as a special secret policeman for most of the time since 1893; do not know whether yon were a witness during the conspiracy case of Walker, St. Clair and Crick you were laid off from time to time be- cause the expenses of the Govern- ment were too heavy; presume you gave me badge of special police which you jiold before me now It is of the same kind I have bad locked up in my safe; we have had several conver- sations together but I cannot state positively where each one took place; to my recollection you have always been paid for your services; when President Dole went to Hawaii I think I told you your services were not needed until he returned; think we have had several talks on the roy- alists do not remember whether it was in November or December I re- member that you told me something about "trouble you were sent to W. O. Smith's residence on New Year's eve; remember saying I would back you up when you told me you wanted to defend yourself against Tom Walker, who had threatened your life; remember of receiving some kind of message from you through the postoffice; do not remem- ber of your telephoning to me from Waikiki that you wanted a pass in order to get into the city do not re- member President Dole entering the room at the-police station when you, W. O. Smith and I were there em- ployed you when there was money enough to pay you; it is probably true that I "went for" you and told you, as well as all my other men, to do something and not to be talking all the time; should have been glad had you given any evidence worth any- thing have not examined you since your arrest; you came in from Wai- kiki and I had you locked up; was not able to send for you and to get your report of what you saw at Wai- kiki placed a great deal of confi- dence id you: sent yon to residence of President Dole because of that fact. On re-direct examination Marshal Hitchcock stated that he had given Markham the order to stand guard at W. O. Smith's residence from 6 p. m. to 6 a. m., until farther notice. C. W. across the street from the residence of W. O. Smith; know Markham; saw him at Smith's house on New Year's eve about 8 o'clock; saw him at intervals through- out the night; had conversation with him about things in general; spoke about possibility of an uprising among the royalists; prisoner had no gun with him; told me the Marshal was a little Hurried that night and nothing much could be said to him, gave him heavy coat to wear in place of the linen one on account of the cold; had something to drink; did not see Markham at Smith's after Mon- day night. Cross-examined by Went to bed at 5 o'clock on the morn- ing of January 1st; you told me you were detailed there for the night; you were there when I went to my house; remember you told me you were a trustworthy friend ot Marshal Hitch- cock.
