Tho secret of Japan's readiness
to hand back to Uhina, territory
gained in the Jote war seems to
b3 found in the hi? bill against
this territory that China has made
for civil aud military expenditures.

tho option-of paying ils own bill

Gojd temporauc!? people in tlioir
-fifdor to restrict the eala of liquor
often accomplish njoro to osbist
tho liquor dealers than tho ten!
perauue causo. A delegation from
tho cold water army has called cu
President McKinloy to impress
upon him tho injury done tho na
tion by tho army canteen; they
considor it a sin of tho deepest
dye that liquor Bhould bo sold to
soldiers at tho bai racks. Experi
ence of army officors goes to show
that tho army oanleou is pruclic-
ally tGmporauoe iu&Ututlon.
The average soldier will have
liquor; it not ooo way ho'll got it
anothor. When he buys it in tlm

It is the expected that happens
when tho uu.w favored nation
treaty with the United States goes
into effect iu Japan with manifes
tations of its kindly accoptauco
by tho people. Whatever trouble,
if any, grows out of that treaty
will probably umauate from the
United States, sine Japan seouros
the loug Mid of tho benefit.

" There arc really only a few people

tiarr. Pasta that in your hnt, and call
to mind that it is utlorud by the
official organ of tho Hawaiian
Qovorumout. What commentar
ies are these that the organ is
giving on the much hoisted patri
otism of Hawaii. Not Batistied
with basing arguments on tho un
constitutionality of tho Nowluuds
Resolution as a whole, tho mouth
piece of the Government calmly
aunouncPB that a selfish greed for
dollatd and cents is tho prima
m iver of tho majority in tholr
CDnnideration of tho constitution
of tho United States. The "rights

of tin American constitution, the
nucleus of the wliolo system of
