Wailuku, Mau g
It is a matter considerably reas
suring, that the general tone of
public sentiment, as it is expressed
in tho mainland papers, is not in
favor of the annexation of Cuba.
The Literary Digest has briefed
the newspaper expression of tho
country in tho following:
"Cuba must work out its own
salvation," says tho Baltimore
News, expressing thus in brief the
decision of perhaps tho major part
of the American press. Some pa
pers there are, however, who agree
with the Boston Journal that "the
United States may havo tostraiglit
en out things in Cuba before this
trouble is over." And yet others
arc even more decided. Tho Phila
delphia Inquirer, for insancc, says
that "it is not to be denied that the
men who havo taken up arms
against tho Palma government
havo a number of substantial gric
vance,'. and that "they aro fighting
now for the right of suffrage, and
their insurrection has the same
justification as tho insurrection
against the tyranny of Spain.''
"Cuba ought to havo boon annexed
to tho United States in tho first
place," continues Tho Inquirer,
"and to that conclusion it must
come at last." Similarly tho Chi
cago Tribune, while acknowledging
that this country as an abun
dance of perplexing domestic pro
lems to deal with," and that "it is
not ambitious for a territory of
Cuba, which would be insistent on
Statehood," is forced to grant, re
luctantly, that there can hardly be
an escape from annexation if the
Cubans hall prove that they arc
unablp to give duo protection to
the vast interests which art concen
trated in Cuba.
Most of the editorial comment is
docidedly conservative, however
"It will be wiso to go slowly in this
Cuban affair," says tho Chicago
Journal, and the Philadelphia Led
ger makes this plea for the inde
pence of Cuba.
"If the Cubans are ever to have
a stable government, tin y must
work it out for thcmsovles. This
country is bound .to protect them
from foreign aggression, but is
equally bound itself to respect
their independence. Wo want io
more dependencies, and v e could
not, at the present stage of politi
cal development, admit Cuba as
one of the United States. In this
we believe American opinion to 'be
practically unanimous, and wo do
not doubt tliat tho policy of the
Government, will be persistently
in accord with it.''
Tho New York Journal of Com
merce has "no sympathy for tho
Cuban rebels," believing that "the
problem of self-government must
bo worked out by peaceablo means
or self-government will not last."
Tho St. Louis Globe-Democrat is
one of the papers which hold that
annexation is inevitable "not on
ly inevitable, but that it can not
bo postponed many years longer
And tho Washington Post is even
more in a hurry. "Why doe3 tho
President hesitate?" it asks.
In Cuba tho desire for our inter
vention is apparently confined to
the insurgent party. "They seem
to havo expected us to tako fire at
their first call to arms and inter
fere at once in their behalf." says
tho Washington Star. "Instead of
that," The Star continues, "senti
ment generally has been with the
Palma Government." Tho possible
incentivo of the insurrection
found by a number of papers in
this very desire for American inter
vention, followed by possible an
nexation of tho island. The Bos
on Herald puts it thus:
"It would not bo strange if there
were a financial syndicate behind
the Cuban revolutionists. If Cuba
could be annexed to this country
and Cuban sutrnr and tobacco
could bo brought in duty free it
would give a value to Cuban land
far greater than the real estate now
The political pot is boiling in good
earnest now and the outcome of the
November elections can be predicted
to a degree of certainty. -
Wounded Slierldnn Ltmps Into
Tho Shoridnn Is In port.
Wounded and crippled, she limped
into tho harbor this morning like a
broken winged bird, and at 10:45 rest
ed her weary sides agpinst tho Hack
feld wharf. She is bloekoned and
stained. Her decks are piled with
cordage and Uttered with cables
and black, smoking boilers. She leans
over to one side as if too weary to
hold herself upright. Her crew are
tired and dirty.
But she is in. Tlie last of tho three
vessels reeked in this part of the
world hns been saved from the sen.
It was just 4:50 this morning when
tho Sheridan came off tho brach up
on which she was run after being
pulled off tho reef at Barber's Point
It was high tied about 5 o'clock this
mornim, and preparations had boon
made for one decisive pull. Lines
wero out to the Buford, the Iwnlani
and the Iroquois, and kedge anchors
l.nd been laid, upon which the Sheri
dan herself was to pull witli her steam
winches. Everything was in rpadiness
for one strong pull that was expect
rd to bring the stranded transport
out into deep water.
It was needed. She camo with
out it. Tho rescuing Vessels were not
pulling much harder than they have
been for the past two days, when
suddenly tho Sheridan started and
almost before they knew It, slid off
tho sand and out it.to tho deeper
water floated onco more. It seems
that she had been loosened in her bed
of send by the pulling of the last two
days, and when the Btiford slewed
her around a little, she came off with
out diflicul ty.
Tho rest was easy. Tho Iroquois
took her in tow and headed for ti e
harbor. Listing strongly to rort,
and buoyed up on one side by the
water boat, and on tho other by the
olil coal bargo fth lancthon, fastened
to her sides to prevent any danger
of her turning turtle should she uga!n
show indications of doing so, the
transport, which for moro than a
month has been lying within a few
miles of tho cisy, jet unablo to get
into port, crept slowly into the har
bor, A stream of water from her
pumps poured out from ench side
Black smoke poured from the funnels
of the boilers that woik her pumps,
Sho looked dirty and disreputable,
bearing little resemblance to the
clean, white ship that was her former
But after all, sho is not badly in
jured. It will not be long before she
is again repaired and ence mere mak
inj her regular runs back and forth
across the Pacilic.
Captain Peabody states that the
vessel is maliing very little water
One pump is able to control the leak,
and even then is obliged to shut down
part of the time. The real extent of
t;he damage to her bottom is not jet
known, but it is not thought to be
serious: Her engine, room ii rather
shaken up and will need overhauling
but there is nothing very much the
' The rest of the transport's injuries
are superficial. Tho paint is scrap
ed olT her sides. Stains of rust smear
tho white coat, of. paint that used, to
be so spotless. Her decks aro back
ened with coal and scarred with the
marks of cables. But these things
are easily remedied. A little paint
and pcrubbing will fix that.
And Captain Peabody docs not
think that it will take long to make
the other more important repairs,
"The Sheridan is not badly hurt," he
says, "and sho will be nil right before
It was a tired and dirty lot of men
that came in on the Sheridan this
morning. Getting a steamer off a
reef isn't easy work, and when it is
necessary to got her off twice, tho
situation is not improved. They wero
glad to get back and said so. They
were black as coal passers, both men
and officers. The first things they
van ted wei e a bath and clean clothes
That and the mall.
Those who wero at tho scene of
operations tho other day when tho
Sheridan camo so near to turning
turtle say thut tho way Captain Car
ter of the Iroquois handled his craft
and got tho Sheridan ashore beforo a
serious accident occurred was very
And Captain Hull of tho Buford,
jvhen ho saw tho danger tho Sheridan
was in, had seven bn;its in the water
and others ready to be dropped In
almost no tune. Had tho Shoridnn
capsized, Captain Hall's action would
undoubtedly haye resulted in tho sav
ing or many lives that might other
wise havo beu lost.
The Buford camo In ahead of tho
Sheridan and docked at the Quaran
tine wharl. Her work has not beon
very hard, but It. has been well done.
For the last two days she has been
pulling constantly on the stranded
vessel, keeping tho seas from wash
ing her farther ashore. When the
Sheridan enmo off tho beach, the
Buford headed for tho harbor, leav
ing the Iroquois to low tho Sheridan.
Tho Iwnlani followed a llttlo behind.
When tho harbor was reached the
Sheridan dropped the water boat,
which was picked up by tho Itvnlanl.
The Manning, which has been with
the Sheridan most of tho tiino since
she went ashore, brought up the rear
of tho little ileet.
No orders havo yet beon received
for either the Buford or the Shor
Idan and It is not known yot when
they will sail from this port. It will
be necessary, of course, to clean up
tho Sheridan and make temporary
repairs beforo sho can put to sea
again. The Buford is ready to go
almost any time. Bullotin Oct. C.

Convoyed By U. S. S. Wl-
Honolulu, Oct 9. Yesterday
afternoon the S, S. Manchuria, winch
was towed into the harbor on the lGth
ult. from Wairnanalo, departed under
hor own steam for San Francisco, tho
liner being saluted ns sho backed down
tho harbor by all tho steamers in port,
tho cableship RestPicr, which had
towed her off the Wairnanalo reefs,
leading in tho chorus. Sho carried
on board only tho members of her
crew and those who had assisted in
the wrecking operations, including
Captain Pillsbury, assistant to Cap-
tain Metealf, and Jack Young, who
had done much good work for the
Manchuria while sho was a round by
nssisting with the launch Brothers in
the wrecking operations.
The Manchuria was preceded out
of the harbor by the battleship Wis
consin, Captain Drake having re
ceived orders to convoy the Man
churia to the Coast with the Wiscon
sin. As the liner will be able to steam
at tho ralo of nine knots, tho task of
accompanying her will delay .the
battleship but little. It has been ar
ranged that tho Wisconsin will stay
throughout tho trip near enough to
tho Manchuria to exchange signals
tin ice daily, two of the battleship's
wigwaggers going on hoard the liner
to send and receive the messages.
While the Manc.hueia stood higher
out of the water than usual when she
pulled out, drawing only H2 feet, there
was nothing otherwise nbout her ap
pernnce to show that she had escaped
tho marine graveyard so very recent
ly. She, is credited with having made
a most satisfactory record on her
tiial run on Saturday and is expect
ed to reach tho Coast wit! out any
trouble within ten days.
Captain Metealf was on the Hack
feld wharf as tho big liner pulled out,
watching with satisfaction the way
she handled herself In swinging
around to enter the channel.
The courso to be sailed by the Man
churia and tho Wisconsin is known
as the Great Circle Composite courso,
which will tako them some distance
north of the regular courso of tho
Great Circle. This is to bo done with
a view of saving tho Manchuria the
necessity of bucking any strong
northwesterly weather, such as might
be expected as the mainland is near
ed. On tho chosen course this
weather will follow the vessel instead
of having to bo worked against.
