A funny story ou Atnericnn citi
zenship is duo from the morning
organ tomorrow or noxt day.
Complications in tho Chinese
immigration business furnish an
other argument in favor of the
speedy extension of Americau
laws to Hawaii.
Itt'ferop Kelloy declared all bets
oT in tho Corbolt Sharkey en
counter in order to present au
o'hor "gambling scandal." As
New York is supposed to have
laws agniust gambling, this stuto
meut brings to mind tho "honor
amouc theives" iden.
llaviug had no internicino war
on board, tho first trip of the
Garonne bids fair to bo a pleas
ant one, and so far as the now line
is concerned business dono on a
business basis. Whilo tho new
lino may not soar into immediate
financial glory and will have to
meet sharp competition, thero is
no apparent rcasou why it should
not receive a fair sharo of the
constantly increasing commercial
patronage thut tho development of
tho territory offers.
Tho statement coming from
Washington regarding tho "open
door" in tho new possessions of
tho Uuited States puts tho quietus
on tho hopes of the foreign nations
that had tho unfortuuate idea that
thosonowcolonies would be handled
in an uuAmerican style. The
annexation of Hawaii, tho Philip
pines and Porto Iiico by no moans
indicates that tho commercial
doors oro to be thrown freely
open to any ono but Americans.
If foreign nations aro to bo grant
ed special privileges in tho Amer
ican island domain, tho Yankees
may woll say "What are wo horo
Now our contemporary seeks to
lend strength to its un-American
utterances by quoting ex-Minister
"Woodford's remarks on the serious
problems which tho Philippiuo
islands present to tho American
people. Gen. Woodford appreci
ates that serious problems aro be
fore us. Every patriotic American
appreciates this. But does Gen.
Woodford cringo and cower and
say "Wo can't do it?" Not muoh.
Ho tolls the Baptist Union and
tho voters of Now York that by tho
Graco of God and tho loyal patri
otism that lovos and protects tho
Hag wo will go ahoad and wo will
boIvo tho problem. Loyal Amer
icans will not shirk thoir duty.
No problem is too great for the
Amorican nation to tacklo, and it
will ovor go onward and upward,
Democratic cowardice, whinh for
tunately does not represent tho
'sentiment of tho American poople,
to tho contrary notwithstanding.

The inevitable and expoctcd
happened when Spanish Peace
Commissioners signified thoir will
ingness to accept all tho Anuri
can domands. That tho Spanish
should accopt nnder a practical
protest was olso to bo expocted.
But that docs not havo any effect
on tho rosult. Through tho wiso
direction of Presidont McKinloy,
tho United States hns strengthen
ed its commercial and civilizing
power in tho Pacific and the
Oriont. When in futuro years tho
Pacific bocomes tho center of tho
world's activities tho United States
will bo strongly intrenched and
prepared to protect tho dignity of
national powor and its citizens on
gaged in various pursuits of lifo
in tho Orient. Tho retention of
tho Philippines means auothor
force added to tho progressive and
enlightening force that is opening
tho Oriont. It means tho streng
thening of tho commercial inter
ests of tho Pacific Coast and Ha
waii particularly and a favorable
iufluenco on tho commorcc of tho
nation as a whole.. To adapt this
now territory to tho Amorican sys
tem is no child's task, but the
United Slates is equal to it. The
te.sk can bo dono and it will be
CONCUIIN IN KOIiniON POLICY.
Hon. Alfred S. Hartwell writos
a lottor to an ovoning contempo
rary in which this paragraph np
pears: It is true, howovor, that largo
interests appear to bo moro di
rectly concornod in tho sottlomcnt
of tariff questions, appropriations
for national objects within the
territory of the United States and
other like matters, than in ques
tions of strictly foreign polioy.
Mr. Hartwell does not say
whether in his referonco to "lnrge
interests" ho means thoso of the
United States or of local Hawaii.
If ho refers to tho large interests of
tho United States wo aro inclined to
say "When did you wako up ?"
If tho last Amorican election did
not provo that tho largo interests
of tho United Slates aro directly
interested in questions of foroign
policy, it didn't provo anything.
Jim Ham Lowis of Washington,
Moguiro of California, Van Wyck
of New York and numerous other
opponents of the Bopublicau for
oign policy have positive evidonco
tjattho peoplo wero directly in
terested in questions of foreign
If local largo interests aro not
concerned in matters 'relating to
tho American foroign policy it 16
timo they began to put on thoir
Tho ling is up, this is American
soil and it is tho duty of ovcry
man who calls himself an Amer
ican or hopes to become an Amer
ican to tako a deop concorn in tho
affairs of tho Amorican nation.
On matters relating to tariff there
is but ono way to look at it from
tho Amorican standpoint: that
Amorican laws shall bo cxtonded
as soon as possible and no dolays
mado in making Hawaii completo
ly and thoroughly American. This
is what tho peoplo of tho United
States desiro and thoir word is law
now. It is also what tho majority
of tho peoplo of Hawaii desiro.
Liko overy section of tho United
Slates, Hawaii's largo nnd small
interests will endeavor to look out
for themselves, but thoy cannot
and it is not propor for them to
expect that they can upset tho
wholn Unitod States system of ta
riff nnd obtain special exceptions
that aro granted nowhero among
