War U hell, but Honolulu will

that occasions arise outside the fir

his policy, he had a surplus of about
$750,000, and practically declared
that he did not consider this too
large to guard the country against
losses sustained by changes In com
mercial relations with the United
States. We do not believe Mr.
Damon under present cond tions

According t) all accounts of de
liberations on Samoan affairs, the

mission's usefulness can be set
down as ending with the forceful
demonstration of the fact that peace

the tripartite agreement is an im
possibility. With all due respect to the mis

they have overcome all the evils of

American days when clergymen

I bcllevo that If" It Is the peoplo who

has ceased to represent to them some
thing vital, something which they can
believe, something mat tncy can love,
somcthlnK that they can woranlp,
something which seems to them worthy
of their manhood unci womannoou.
And If this bo tho case, Instead of this
supposed decay of religion being n Blgn
of tho decadence of human nature, It
means an uplift and advanco of human
nature. It Is no dlsgraco for"n man
to outgrow a partial and unworthy

While spheres of Influence and
open doors in China are an ever
fruitful source of international cor
respondence, it is not surprising that
Russia and France should renew
their interest in -the-subject while
Great Britain has troubles on her
hands. The American firm reas
sertion that the nation seeks no in
fluence in China other than secured
through the open door serves to put
a quietus on the European tenden
cy to embarass the British. The
opportunity to pay the British debt
for services rendered in the Spanish
war has come earlier than was an
ticipated, nor is the American
sympathy for Great Britain ex
pressed solely in the refusal to take
a part in the Britons difficulties
with the Boers.
