As "J. B.," princo ot satiristnl lini
rologntod tho lottery to ctornnl obli
vion it would bo nn act of sni'rik'go
for a mechanic to "stir it up" as
suggested by that Hawaiian Juvo
nnli Ho should not ha o boon snip) is
od that a simple-minded woikuinn
failed to grasp tho fact that hi as
sortions anont tho postal union woio
moaut for ridicule niorolv. That
sort of satiro is usually called by a
harsher nanio by tho matter of fact
Class to which I belong. Having
his assurance that the scheme is
dofuuet and cannot bo galvanized
into lifo it behooves us to iepu"-s
our boistorous griof now that ho has
so docontly intorred tho coipso and
sook some other moans for lelioving
our financial embarrassment. The
only measuro whoso gravity elovales
it to a dignity secure fiom tho as
saults of cheap-wittcd ridicule and
tho finosso of political charlatans, is
that which was lately alluded by to S.
E. Bishop, openly advocated by 13.
L. Huntsman, and sceietly favoied
by tho Advortisor -tho question of
annotation to tho United States.
This is a live issue and should bo
discussed without any "Jlights of
imagination" or satiric untiuths.
And first wo should ask what advan
tage wo, as a community, woidd
secure by becoming a mid-Pacific
territory, for, with our spaiso popu
lation, something less I am told than
that of Alamoda County, California,
it woidd bo preposterous for us to
expect to attain tho dignity of state
hood. To borrow a phrase from "J.
B.," "America wouldn't stand it."
"Wo will take it for granted that
America, ninoteen-twentieths of
whoso people do not even know our
geographical position, will accept
our ovorturos, our kingdom, out
debts and our hordo of Asiatics, and
merely ask if tho proposed radical
chango in our civil polity will make
our soil -snoro productive, our cli
mato loss enervating, or our pcoplo
more industrious and prosperous.
"Wo should also question tho stabi
lity of tho Govoinmont with which
wo seek to become amalgamated. It
ma not bo amiss in this connection
to call attention to tho prophotic
utterances of Thomas Carlj'lo in
1848 when Europo was practically
under mob rule and M. do Lamar
tino, "with nothing in him but melo
dious wind " was the acknowledged
priest, seor and prophet of tho tur
"America too will have to strain
its energies, to crack its
sinews, and all but break its heart,
as tho rest of us have had to do in
the thousandfold wiestlo with tho
Pythons and mud-demons, boforo it
can become a habitation for tho
gods. America's battle is yet to
fight. Enormous Mega
therions loom hugo and
hideous out of tho twilight Future
That twilight future has become a
torriblo to-day and a social convul
sion is shaking tho political founda
tions of tho republic. So grave has
tho situation become, so widespread
tho industrial discontent, and anar
chistic principles so widely dissemi
nated, that one of America's most
celebrated journalists, Ambroso
Biorco, latol' published somo power
ful articles calling attention to an
approaching baptism of blood and a
probablo renewal of the awful scenes
of carnage that horrified tho woild
in 1793. Wb havo an object lesson
in tho fratricidal strife waged in Ton
nosseo botwoon tho coal miners and
tho State and Federal troops in tho
murderous engagements between tho
Now York militia and tho striking
switchmen at Buffalo in tho horri
ble butchery of Carnegie's omploj'ees
at Homestead by Pinkorton detec
tives, and in tho labor troublos that
havo culminated in bloodshed in the
Northwest. "Republics aro still on
trial." "Wo soo tho sun of Franco
sotting to an eternal night. Tho
Contral and South American Bo
publics aro groaning boncath tho
weight of national bankruptcy and
oppressive taxation. Those of us
who havo noted tho changes upon
tho dial plate of timo realizo but too
sadly that for America tho hour of
disruption is at hand. That her
government of tho pooplo, by tho
peoplo is a fallacy a specious false
hood cloaked in gilt and tinsol to
dazzle tho eyos of tho ignorant. Tho
conditions under which the labor
ing classes exist aro becoming more
precarious and loss enviablo year by
year. Then what havo our working
classes horo to gain by chango?
Govornmont is at tho best but a
form it cannot alter natural condi
tions. To look to annexation to a
nation that bids fair to bo soon dis
momborod and transformed into
numerous oligarchies, as a moans of
bottoring our presont condition,
seems to bo little short of suicidal.
