Inspector of Militia Draws On History To Support Condi
tion That Strong Armed Force is Desirable
Would Have Several More Companies
(Continued from last Issue.)
Not only have our wars been pto
longed by lack ot preparation, !mt our
liberties have been imperiled" by un
successful wars. In our two Etruveles
for national existence the Revolution
and the Civil War we have in each
case had to resort to conscription;
neither patriotism nor bounties would
procure soldiers. Three times has our
country been under the rule of a mili
tary dictator, for Couplers twice
prnnted dictatorial powers to Wash
ington, and Lincoln, without the con
sent of Consreris, raised an army of
250,000 men. The spectacle of. the
Father of his Country hanging men
without the shadow of a trial and
seizing supplies wherever found with
out paying for them may lie unfam
iliar to Americans, but such f icts arc
Incontrovertible. And further, that
Congress which would not enlist 20,
000 men to prevent war, readily con
firmed the President's act in enlisting
250,000 to carry It on. But when put
nation is In dire straits again, who
can say thai we shall have a Washing
ton or a Lincoln at the helm?
While a war, especially an unsuc
cessful one, may produce gieat res
traint of individual liberty, a strongly
centralized government, perhaps even,
as In our wars, a dictatorship, yet
there is no connection between mili
tary power and despotism. The Shah
of Persia, until a few years ago, could
lop off the heads of his subjects at
will, yet his country had no military
Ultimate success in war has blinded
our people; they believe that military
preparation is not necessary, p.ncl that
any man can be u soldier without any
previous training whatsoever. It is
the belief of the average Amei ican,
further, that a million men cauld be
raised at the drop of a hat. The sad
comment of Washington on American
patriotism has long ago been forgot
ten: "Men may talk of patriotism;
they may adduce a few examples from
ancient stories, but he who relins or.
them to condiict a long and bloody
was will find himself deceived in the
At the period of the Revolution,
we were a nation of riflemen. Since
then not only have we lost our exper
ience In rine-shooting, but the art of
war has gro.vn more complicated.
Even In those times the need tor
training was appreciated; it was the
dictum of Richard Henry Lee (Light-
Horse Harry) : - Convinced as 1 am
that that government is the mm det er
of its citizens which sends them into
the field uninformed and untaught
where they are to meet an enemy
mechanized by discipline for battle, I
car. no longer withhold my denuneia
lion of Us wickedness and folly. To
day Washington's Last Annual Mes
sage is as pertinent to the American
people as when written more than a
century ago: "Whatever arguments
may be drawn from particular exam
ples, superficially viewed, a thorough
examination of the subject will evince
that the art of war Is both compre
hensive and complicated; that it de
mands much previous study, and that
the possession ot It in its most ap
proved and perfeot states Is always of
great moment to the security of a na
tion." Universal peace has long infatuated
the American people. Our forefathers
were captivated by it ; it was John
Adams who said "National defense is
the cardinal duly of the statesman.
The delightiul dreams of perpetual
peace have often amused, but have
never been credited by me."
Not only have the American people
not been peaceful; they have not even
been law-abiding. Within the prec
ing 125 years, the Federal Army has
been (ailed out more than ,100 times
to preserve law and order. These
were more than local disturbances.
those that the Governors of States
were unable to quell themselves w.th
the forces at hand. This means that
once within an average period of one
year and three months the stater h ,ve
been unable to enforce the laws and
have had to call on. the United States
troops. How many times the Gover
nors have had to call on the National
Guard of their own states there are
no exact statistics within my know
ledge; I would estimate it at four or
five times as often. Only a few months
ago the U. S. troops were withdrawn
from Colorado; the average citizen
hardly knew they were there. If such
things make so little impression, who
can say that a larger combination
against law and order U impossible?
Who can say what capital and la
bor troubles or a thousand other caus
es, may bring forth? A civil war Is
no moie Impossible now than 50 years
ago. except that the chances for its
success have deci eased with our in
crease in military strength. In fact,
one observer has characterized the
recent Colorado troubles as being Uv
Passing now from the patriotic
reasons for military training, wo will
discuss the benefits to the rommunitj
to be derived therefrom. When ' a
young man enlists in the National
Guard he takes a binding oath to sup
port the Constitution of the I'nited
States and to obey the orders of J.e
officers appointed over him. He thus
comes out decisively In favor of law
and order, and is bound to execute
the laws. Often have our citizens
conspired to overthrow the laws, yet
the soldier has never failed in his
trust. Always behind the judge and
his court has been the soldier J'i
bis bayonet, ard the soldier has never
failed. Our laws have thus induced
respect, because the people have lult
Hint they could be enforced. The nel
dier is as much a sworn executor of
the laws as the policeman or the
Not only n limes of insurrection or
riot i.i the soldier of value to the
community; it has been the exper
ience of our people that only by mili
tary force ran the necessary quaran
llne regulations in time of a serious
epidemic be enlorced. It has been
only a few years ago since the peo
ple of Honolulu suffered an epidemic
of the plague, and the conduct of the
National Guard in enforcing the aiiar
anline and In stamping out the di
sease in a few months won the high
est praise from all. Two soldiers? were
victims of this dread disease, and e
tually gave the R lives in the per
formance of dut. It is a matter of
great civic pride to look back on suc'i
a record, and to feel that these were
your own people who behaved so
Further, the armory in small to'vis
Is usually a club house for the young
men. where they can meet together.
To meet where they are under disci
pline, to indulge in drills, shooting,
or healthful sports, is far belter than
meeting on street corners or In evil
places. An armory could be made the
centre of all athletic sports, and facil
ities for athletics could be more easily
provided. A healthful club of this
kind for the young men, with maga
zines and reading matter and a set of
athletic appliances should be of extra
ordinary benefit, especially in a small
Passing now to the benefits to be
derived by the Individual, he will also
benefit by the privileges of the armory
which may be used as a club house
for him ,and by nil the athletic oppor
tunities and other advantages such a
club would afford. A military organi
zation will give him opportunities for
physical training, so that an erect and
soldierly carriage can be obtained by
himself. He will have an opportunity
to indulge in one of the keenest ol
sports ritle shoeing for the Nation
al Guard vill nll'ord all the advantages
of a ritle club to him, without the ex
penditure ot a single cent from his
pocket for arms or ammunition. Ser
vice in the National Guard will n
able the poor young man the oppor
tunity of a trip to Honolulu once a
year, where he will meet other young
men from the other islands and where
they will be under discipline. More
than GOO young men attended the an
nual encampment last July in Hono
lulu, without a single case of drunk
eness or rowdyism. An opportunity
to see friends and relatives in Honolu
lu once each year, to get in touch with
people from the different islands, is
often beyond the means of many of
the young men, and it is undeniably a
broadening and healthful experience.
Lastly, the work connected with
seWice in the National Guard is none
of it confining ov detrimental to the
health. The young man learns to take
care of himself in the open, to take
caie of his arms and equipment, and
to fire his rifle so as to hit the mark.
All his woriv is open air work, ex
cept the drills in the armory. The
good soldier soon takes a pride in
feeling himself well drilled and learns
to take pride in his company, feeling
that, it is the best in the guard. Many
men take keen delight in the drills
and are never absent, looking forward
each week to the drill night as a time
In the United States, mi.it.iry
schools have tprung up all over the
country. They are always well at
tended, the people believe that they
f ul till a useful purpose, and the boys
take great pride in belonging to such
schools. Today there is before the
Legislature of Hawaii a bill the
Holstein bill which will place a mili
tary education within the reach of
everyone, making it a part c.f the
school system of Hawaii, so tiiat
every school will be a military school
The Hawaiian people are the first to
appreciate the advantages of military
education, and the passage of this bill
will, in the language of one of its sup
porters, make Hawaii the center of
American patriotism. Who c:ui fail to
see the desirability of having all our
young men erect and straight, their
physical powers developed, habit ui.tc'l
to authority and discipline, and with
some knowledge of rifle firing and
how to take care of themselves under
the hardships of a life in the open?
These advantages can well be appre
ciated in time of peace, and may lie of
the utmost importance In times of d in
ger. Let us see that we have some
organization to meet war when it
comes; it is too late to organize a
fire department when a fire is destroy
ing the city.
