CALIFORNIA FOR TREATY

What I lie TreiUy line for Bnii
TJador tho heading, "Ono View
of Reciprocity, Iho San Francisco
Examiner thus refers to Senator
Benator Perkins lias written a
letter to Mayor Plielan explaining
that be is for the Hawaiian Recip
rocity treaty in practiso but
against it in theory, or for it in
tbeory bnt against it in practise
he is not certain which; but at all
events, ho has no doubt that he is
in "an embarrassing situation." It
is beyond doubt a matter of pain
to Senator Porkins that his con
stituents cannot agree on tho sub
jqot of the Reciprocity treaty, but
such being tho case thero'isno
reason why he cannot work for
the best interests of the State until
tho subject is put to vote. It is
true that tho Sugar Trust people
on tho Coast want tho Reciprocity
treaty to go, for their contracts
with the Hawaiian planters aro
about to expiio and tho planters
will not consent to the trust's
terms of renewal. The trust con
trols the Watsonvillo and Ghiuo
beet-sugar factories, has an inter
est in the Salinas factory that is
now under construction, and
hints that it may build more boot
sugar factories in the future
Therefore it is able to get resolu
tions against the treaty from the
sugar-beet farmois and from
formers who would like to raise
sugar beets, and from boards of
trade in places before which it
dangles the bait bf a possible
beet-sugar factory to bo built if
tho treaty is smashed.
But outsido of these classes the
value of tho Hawaiian treaty is
recognized by tho peoplo of tho
State, and as Senator Porkins de
clares that he is ready to "be gov
erned by tho wishes of a majority
of tho peoplo of tho State" he
ought to have no hesitation in
tained. Senator Perkins as a
commercial man and owner of
shipping understands tho valuo of
the Hawaiian trade to San Fran
cisco. He knows that it gives this
port from one-fourth to ono third
of its foreign commerce, that it
maintains a largo fleet flying the
American flag, , and that it brings
to this State a largo prom in ro
turn for tho capital and the enter
prise its people have furnished to
the islands. If ,he has not the fig
gures of this profit by him he
can find them in The Examiner
of May 24, in which it was Bhown
that during the existence of tho
Reciprocity treaty wo had, in re
tarn for 862,587,346 in goods and
a balance of !s9,588,G91 in gold and'
silver, received from Hawaii $170,
144,801 worth of merchandise.
The advantages of this trade would
be sacrificed by abandoning tho
Senator Porkins advances some
other reasons for supporting the
treaty when ho says: -
"Wo aro paying to China, tho
East Indies aud other countries
with which wo havo no reoipro
oity treaties tons of millions of
dollars each year for sugar, aud
as long as wo' aro compelled to
purchase sugar from foreign
countries it seems but right that
we should give to thoso granting
ub reciprocal benefits an advan
tage in removing tho tariff from
their staple article of export. If
we were not paying out such vast
sums to sugar-produoing countries
thoro could bo no question that
tho reciprocity treaty with Ha
waii should bo abrogated. But as
long as wo aro unable to produce
sufficient sugar 'for our own con
sumption it is not, to my mind,
good polioy to radically change

when ho boxed tho ears of Sena
Senator Canovas, tho Premier,
will take the portfolio ad interim
Tho Liberals of the Senate have
decided to attend no more sessions
of tho Sonate until full satisfac
tion has boon accorded to Sona
tor Comas and the Liberal party
by tho Duke of Tetuan.
The exciting incident which
culminated in a free fight was
provoked by tho statement of tho
Duko of Tetuan that Senator
Sagasta's speech tho other day to'
tho Liberals had contributed to
bring about tho voto in tho Ame
General Luis Pnudo said: "Tho
thing now happening is duo to tho
cowardice and feebleness of tho
Senator Comas said: "You will
discuss that tomorrow."
"Wo will discuss it," roplied tho
Duko of Tetuan, "but I will accept
dictation from nobody."
"Nor I either," retorted Senator
ComnB, at tho top of his voico.
At this point tho Duko of Tot-
paio wnn excuomeni, uoxeu-
both ears of Senator Comas and
foiled him to the floor. The son
of Comas throw himself upon the
Duko and struc him a heavy
blow with his fist." Several Sena
tors intervened, and a 'general
scuffle ensued, with great confu
sion, and it was some time boforo
order was restored.
The Duke of Tetuan tendered
his resignation immediately after
tho incident. It is bolioved that
ho misunderstood tho reply pf Sen

Senator Comas is a professor in
tho University of Madrid, and is
held in high esteom iu scholastic
and political ciroles.
Senor Canovas, Senor SagaBta
and tho president of tho Senato
had a long conference on tho sub
ject of the affray this afternoon,
but all maintain the greatest re
serve. The Sonate resumed its session
this evening, but no roference was
made to the incident. 'It adjourn
ed at 10 o'clock.
Aftor adjournment tho Duko of
Tetuan and Senator Comas select
ed Bocouds as a preliminary to a
duel. Tho seconds havo decided
that as the aggressions were reci
procal, a duel was not necessary.
Tho immodiate witnossos deliber
ated with tho seconds of tho Duko
of Tetuan and Senator Comas for
an hour beforo the seconds docid
od that, under tho, code duello, a
duel was unnecessary.
Senator Comas is tho man who,
in June last, in tho Spanish Son
nto, supported tho uniondinont to
the address asking that treaties
with tho United States might bo
canceled on tho ground that they
wore a sourco of constant danger
to tho poaco of Spain and the
United States. He mado a speech
bitterly assailing tho United States
and wolcoming a conflict, which
ho lookpd on as inevitable.

The invention of tho telegraph
and its subsequent development
is closely associated with the
reign of Her Graoious Majesty.
But the work of the telegraph
engineer is in one respect incom
plete. It still remains for him to
establish a girdle round the earth.
The question of n Pacific cable
has again come to tho front. A
committee has been sitting at tbs
Colonial Office for the purpose of
cousideriug tho matter. Tho
points which suggest themselves
for consideration are: Is the Pa
cific cable desirable for strategic
roasonB ? Is tho scheme feasible ?
To these .question-! any statesmaM
or telegraph engineer would, I
think, unhesitatingly answer in
It would bo difficult to over
estimate tho stratogio valuo of the
Pacific lino. At tho same timo
do udt attach too much import-
nnco to the mucu-talkeu-ot tele
graphic isolation of England which
is feared immediately we nro in
volved in waifaro with any great
European power. This is hold up
to us as a sort of "bogey." If
our fleet does its duty, and it gen
erally does do its duty, any
cable - cutting craft which may
advonturo into the shallow waters
near our shores, or uoar those oL
our Colonies, may be expected to
meet with an unpleasant reception.
On tho other hand, tho wholesale
destruction of cables in deep
water will not prove an easy task
to tho comparative amateur. It
takes a certain amount of time to
grapplo a cable in deep water,
even when tho oxaot position is
known. The popular imagination
pictures tho work of destruction
as being carried out by 20-knot
cruisers in something liko tho
twinkling of an eye.
Cablo catching is not to be
learned in a day.. I do not think
tho malicious damage to cables in
deep water nood be greatly feared,
and it mayv bo takon for granted
that our cable ships quickly re
pair the damage inflioted in shal
low water, unless tho enemy held
command of the sea. Neverthe
less, the more telegraphio routes
wo havo to our Colonies the less
tho probability ot their being
isolated in tho event of war, and
tho loss tho ohanco of panic in
time of peace. Nothing moro dis
heartening for the would-bo de
stroyer of cables can bo imagined
than tho knowledge that there are
bo many routes available for send
ing messages, so that tho destruc
tion of any ono cablo would hard
ly bo worth tho risk. When our
network of telegraphs is complete,
with cablo ship's judiciously
placed for ropairing purposes,
and fast cruisers to watch the
moro exposed portions of the
route, there ought to be little risk
of Great Britain boing completely
isolated from her Colonies in time
