, The cause was right; it was Just.
Tho few men In Hawaii and the
band ot workers In Washington havo
been thrice armed.,
America's continental Insularity
has gone. It was bound to go if the
country continued to progress.
And this tour of the great Atlantic
Fleet has, we hope, brought home to
our fellow-cltlzens of the mainland
that the first requisite of continued
progress is a matchless naval force.
We ot Hawaii do not lay claim to
superior foresight when wo say that
we have known this for years, and
have incessantly labored to convlnco
those living in satisfied security be
hind continental barriers. It Is not
superiority that wo claim.
Americans In Hawaii are on tho
border. They are in the midst of
things. They havo brought daily and
hourly to their attention the tacts
and developments of the world's prog
ress that ho who runs may read.
The lessons of each day havo
brought thorn Invariably back to the
same conclusion the lndellblo fact
that the ability ot America to play Its
part in tho development ot civiliza
tion and maintain continued peace
depends primarily on Its Navy.
America may raise the greatest ar
mtes the world has ever seen. It may
build up falsa hopes on the command

wealth. It may boast ot Its ability
to convince the world that wars
should cease. It may preach all tho
doctrines It pleases. But without a
great Navy to act the part of a
peace-preserver all the vaunted pow
er of armies, wealth, and beautiful
theories are hollow Bhams exploded

common knowledge and has been for
