Hornellsville Weekly Tribune (Newspaper) - February 9, 1894, Hornellsville, New York i VOLUME 42. NATIONAL Hawaiian Resolution Be- ing Discussed. WORKING ON TARIFF. Other Washington News of Interest. HORNELL8VILLE, N. Y., FRIDAY, FEB. NUMBER 19. I PreM 'o Ermine TtlMtnm WABHIBOTOH, Feb. Hawaiian de- bate was concluded, but the entire resolu- tion was not passed, because pf the failure ef the Democrats to secure a quorum when a vote was taken upon it. Much less opposition from the Demo- cratic aide developed than was at one time anticipated. Only one speech, that of General Sickles (N. was made in opposition to the adoption-ot the resolution. The Hitt substitute, the Blair amend- ment and the motion made by Mr. Reed, to commit the resolution, were in torn voted down. When the vote came to be taken npon the main question, however, the adoption the entire resolution, the Republicans refrained from voting and the Democrats lacked 17 ot quorum. Mr. Loud (Rep., Cal.) contended that partisanship should hare no place in the determination of a question, where patriotism alone should reign. The Amer- ican interest in Hawaii was paramount Down to Mr. Cleveland's second admin- istration the policy of the United States had always looked to ultimate annexa-! tion. Even Mr. Merrill, Mr. Cleveland's first minister to Hawaii, received instrnc-' tions, both written and verbal, to court the most friendly relations with Hawaii with a view to ultimate annexation. Mr. Turner (Dem., Ga.) made an im passioned speech. The revolution of onr countrymen in Hawaii, said he, was not against oppression. It wsa a conspiracy which overthrew and trampled under foot a constitutional form of government under which our countrymen there had flour- ished and prospered. Mr. Sickles (Dem.. N. Y.) then got the floor and made the first speech on the Democratic side against the McCreary resolution. If the resolution which the house was asked to pass confined itself the past and the present, he said In opening, ha would have remained silent, but it went further. It bad an important bearing on the future. He did not believe that one administration was a court of appeals or a court of review for the acts of a previous administration. [Republican applause.] He should look forward with regret to a possible review five years hence of the of Cleveland and Blount, as he now saw with surprise and regret an attempt to review the acts of President Harrison and Minister Stevens, both of whom are now out of office. The present government of Hawaii, he continued, was recognized by the United States as a legitimate government. Its authority was unquestioned. How it had originated might still be a proper subject for a debating society, but being complete, being recognized, that question in law was res adjudicata. [Republican applause.] As long ago as 1850, I beard Governor Marcy say that the Sandwich islands should not belong to any other power and would eventually belong to us. 1 agreed with him then, and I agree with him now." [Republican applause.] Mr. De Forest, (Dem., Conn.) endorsed the action of the administration. Mr. Hepburn (Rep., Iowa) said the resolution which the Democratic house proposed to pass condemned Minister Stevens on ex parte evidence secured by Mr. Blount; that evidence Mr. McCreary would not have been warranted in using before court. Mr. Hooker of Mississippi was recog- nized for one hour for the closing speech of the debate. Mr. Hooker is a Demo- cratic member of the foreign aff.iirs com- mittee. He called attention to tho-.e feat- ures of the Hawaiian treaty submitted by President Harrison, which gave a pension of per year to the dethroned queen, to the royal princess and assumed the Hawaiian debt of over He argued at length the existence of a con- spiracy which, having accomplished its' usurpation of the functions of govern- ment, proceeded to divide up the spoils. In the course of his speech Mr. Hooker paid a high tribute to Mr. Blount. In eonoludfsg delivered a glowing eulogy r aud j stands nmone t KM -o thp Missia- Operation OB Corporal Tanner.

The first bill considered was the blanket ballot measure, William M. Ivans of New York city spoke against the use of the paster ballot. In connection with the blanket ballot. Norton Chase snoke against the passage of the bill with the paster ballot. He ad- vocated the distribution of official ballots before election to be cast in an opaque en- velope on election day. Mr. Matthew Hale followed. He at- tacked the stand made by ex-Governor Hill in the position he took in vetoing the blanket ballot bills. He said that Mr. Hill was the most ingenious man he ever't knew in upholding the wrong side of a question. If Governor Flower takes the game stand as did Mr. Hill, no blanket ballot bill would be ever signed by him. He favored (ho emblems and thought the paster an evil which should be avoided. Mr. Louis Delafield spoke in favor of the Sheffield bill. He presented a number of to the bill of a minor character. 1 he various bilm were referred to the following Joint commutes for amendment; Saxtoo, LOKOW and Parker. ABSCi IDLE!
