No. 74.]								Department of State,
Washington, February 17, 1893.
Sir: I append for your information copy of an instruction to the consul-general at Honolulu, of this date, directing 
him to report fully as to the shipping under Hawaiian registry on the 17th day of January, 1893, and any transfer of 
vessels to the Hawaiian flag which may have been or may be affected since that date.
You will kindly lend Mr. Severance your counsel and aid in preparing the indicated report.
I suggest, moreover, for your confidential guidance, that it may be well for you to make such friendly and discreet 
intimation to the present Government as may discourage the placing of foreign shipping under its flag at this 
juncture. 
I am, etc.,
William F. Wharton,
Acting Secretary.

Mr. Wharton to Mr. Severance.

Department of State,

Sir: I have to request that you will prepare at as early a day as may be possible, and forward to the Department, a 
table showing all vessels, bona fide, under Hawaiian registry on the 17th of January last, giving names, character, 
tonnage, horse power, if steamers, where and when built, and how owned at that date, whether by Hawaiian citizens 
or foreigners.
