N The Monroe Doctrine has again come to the fore in the action
of the Senate in the Santo Domingo treaty. As the document
stands, the United States undertakes to attempt to adjust the
foreign and domestic obligations of Santo Domingo, to take charge
of all the custom-houses, to pay not less than forty-five per cent
of the total collections to the Dominican Government, and to apply
the remainder, leas the salaries of the custom-house employees, to
the Dominican debt. Whatever be the fate of this particular treaty,
it involves a principle which is become necessary corollary of the
Monroe Doctrine. An American republic 'which will not or can
not pay the claims of European nations is subject to the bombard
ment and seizure of its forts and customhouses by those nations.
Such unsatisfied claims lead naturally to that foreign seizure of ter
ritory which the Monroe Doctrine prohibits. Why should the
United States not trust to the Monroe Doctrine, without any en
largement? Why should it undertake new responsibilities? For
the reason, the justice of which is' clear, that since the Monroe
Doctrine forbids European Powers to occupy territory of Ameri
can Republics against which they have claims or from which they
have suffered injury, the United States must provide a means of
Compensation and settlement. This is the principal of the Santo
Domingo treaty. The so called Monroe Doctrine which has always
been a ' 'thorn in the flesh" of the European powers, was given
birth in President Monroe s message to Congress in 1823, where
he says: ''As a principle in which rights and interests of the
United States are involved, that the American continents, by the
free and independent condition which they have assumed and
maintain, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for fu
ture colonization by any European power. With the existing
colonies or dependences of any European power we have not in
terfered and shall not interfere. But with the governments who
have declared their independence and maintain it. and whose in
dependence we have, on great consideration and on just principals
acknowledged, we could not view any inter position for the rur
Jose of oppressing them or controlling in any other manner their
estiny by any European power in any other light than as the
xnanifestaton of an unfriendly disposition towards the United
States.'' Secretary Olney in his despatch on July 20, 1895, on the
Venezuelan Boundary Dispute, said; "It (the Monroe Doctiine)
aoes not esiaousn any general protectorate oy tne united States
over other American States. It does not relieve any American
State from its obligations as fixed by inter-national law, nor ore
vent any European power directly interested from enforcing such
obligations or from inflicting merited punishment for the breach

The San Francisco papers, particularity the Chronicle and the
Argonaut have taken up the fight against the wholesale immigra
Hon or Japanese laborors in earnest; nor does it rest alone with
these papers. The San Francisco Labor Council has passed the
"First That copies of there solutions adopted by the
American Federation of Labor convention, favoring
the exclusion of the Japanese and Coreans, be printed
and sent for indorsement to all labor organizations in
this city, with the request that, if adopted or indors
ed, said resolutions, with the seal of the organization
attached, be forwarded to the law and legislative com
mittee of this council.
"Second That further action be left in charge of
your law and legislative committee, with instructions
to bring in further recommendations from time to
time as the committee may deem proper.
The Chronicle says:
Something has been said of the working of the
great immigration companies of Japan, who first
create the desire for emigration and then make the
path of their illiterate countrymen so plain that the
wayfaring man, though a fool, cannot err therein. It
may. however, be well to go a little deeper than this,
to suggest that there may be other and still more
potent mechanism at work and that even the most
ignorait coolie emigrant may be an integral part of a
movement that is already national and may become
more so. It may also be well to show that, in the mat
ter of Japanese immigration, California is by no means
alone in her misery; that Australia has also recog
nized the same menace to her industrial life,
although to an infinitely lesser degree, and
that the reply of Australia to that menace has
been so emphatic that she has left no loophole for
the aggression that she has so much reason to dread.
In this matter California will need no pioneer to show
her the way, but none the less a fellow feeling makes
us wondrous kind and there is wisdom in the multip
licity of counsel.
Japan is indeed playing a game of "heads I win,
tails you lose." She sends us her fit and her unfit
with a careless prodigality and with the assurance that
the fit will return and that the unfit will be unable to
return. America is the winnowing ground; America
separates the wheat from the chaff, with permission
to keep the chaff for her trouble.
If Congress takes up the question of placing a duty
on coffee the discussion which will necessarily follow
will have an educational value, as it will serve to ac
quaint the people w.th h feature of tariff taxation which
is often overlooked. Before the matter is decided it
will te generally understood that the removal of the
duty from coffee did not afford relief to the American
consumer; it simply enabled the Brazilians to gather
iiiuj limit- treasury revenue wnicn iormerjy went
that of Uncle Sam. S. F. Chronicle Mth. 18.
So this is. where it shoe v o lid pinch, provided Con
bounty on Hawaiian coffee. No wonder so strenerous a fight was
put by those Senators interos;rs'l in the South American product.
Court Winding Up Term
The following cases were disposed
of since the last issue of the News:
Charles Long charged with lar
ceny in the second degree, was found
guilty by the trial jury and sentenc-
to eighteen months at hard labor by
His Honor. Long's theft was $60.00
from a Japanese named Sumida at
Maalaea Bay last October;
Ah Lo, indicted by the Grand Jury
with assult to commit Rape, was
found guilty and the Court sentenced
him to five years at hard labor and
to pay a fine of $50,00
J. L. Osmer and J. Correa charged
with common nuisense resulted in a
Nolle pro, for Correa and a fine of
$5,00 against J. L. Osmer. D. H.
Case was attorney for defendents.
This is the finale of the blasting case
up Iao Valley whereby a Japanese
was struck on the foot by a rock
which caused amputation.
On Wednesday the case of the Ter
ritory of Hawaii vs. John Richardson,
indicted by the Grand Jury rf em
bezzlement held the attention of
Judge Lindsay who sat on the case in
place of Judge Kepoikai disqualified
The examination of witness for the
prosecution conducted by Deputy
Attcrney General Heen assisted by
J. L. Coke, and for the defence at the
hands of D. H. Case and J. M. Vivas
consumed all of Wednesday and
Thursday. A special session was
held Thursday evening commencing
at six o'clock when the attorneys
addressed the jury, and at about
half past eight after the charge by
Judge Lindsay, the Jury retired to
their room to vote. At a quarter to
twelve word was sent to the jury as
to the possibility of their reaching
a decision; the reply back was that
there was a chance, but at . twenty
minutes past twelve word was re
ceived that there was no possible
chance of the jury reaching a de
cision. The jury was called in and
discharged and the (Jourt ordered a
mistrial. The other charge of Em
bezzlement will probably be Nolle
As there is only one more Com
mittal and one Civil case, to be
heard it is fair to presume that this
term of Conrt will adjourn early
next week The Awana case of
selling liquor without a license which
resulted in a mistrial has been con
tinued to the next term.
Every inch one pushes off b?yond
the normal distance of twelve inches,
after eye failure begins, means an
inch of danger.
Ninety-nine persons out of a hun
dred may do it safely; you may be the
one who can't.
Those having the best eyes when
old age comes will be those who heed
the first call for help.
