Attorney General McKennai's of the opinion that, except as to goods not the product of a contiguous country which are imported into the United States directly from such contiguous country, the language of the section is not clear enough to make it certain that congress intended to change the previously existing law.

WAR SHIPS FOR HAWAII. ITiiKed SlatPft Prepared to Clierkiuate Any Move by .Tap.ui. WASHINGTON, Sept. 2.">. — Uncle Sam .Iocs not intend to be caught napping in Hawaii. Notwithstanding the denials of Japanese officials, the adir.ini- stration is suspicious that the wily Japs meditate .some sort of a coup.

It was originally intended that the cruiser Philadelphia filiould return to the United States very soon, but now the understanding: is that tho Philadelphia will be kept at Hondolulu till the Japanese cruiser Naniwa leaves that port for Japan, as it is reported she is about to do. The Japanese may not be .meditating action, but the administration thinks it wise to be on the safe side. JAPAN READY TO FIGHT US.

The task is admitted to be a hard one. The miners got practically all they asked for, und more than the conservative members expected.
