HAWAII THE OUTPOST

"I nm glad to talk about Hawaii be
cause, I bcllove In Huwnll." said Co!-
lonel Lewis after the first greetings
wero over. "I wns the only Demo
cratic Congressman from the I'nclllc
Coast who otcd In favor of tho an
nexation of the Islands when tho mat
ter camo up In Congress. At that tlmu
I was Congressmau-nt-lnrgc from
Hawaii tho Western Outpost.
"I have nhvajs felt that the Federal
government should look upon Huwnll
as tho western outpost of thu United
States. I have advocated the abandon
ment of the Philippine as being out
side of our sphere nnd likely to involvo
us In trouble with thu Orient. I be-
llevo that tho money that would thus
bo saved should bo expended In mak
ing Hawaii into a military and naval
stronghold; widely would ho to America
what GtbrAltur Is to llrltaln.
"I expressed myself strongly on this
matter when I wns u candidate for
Governor of tho Stnte of Illinois, I
had occasion to take Issue with my
pnrty In regard to tho navy. I believe
that we should maintain us largo a
navy its necessary and as small n
standing army as practicable.
''I huve'urged tho fortification of Ha
waii. Should we got. into any dlnlcul-
tlni In the Orient, Hawaii would be the
1 first placo to bu seized by the Orient
als, Tno reason why this would' bu
tho case aro clear to my mind,
Tho first reason Is that It would pro
vent IL-iwnll being used as n base for
the American Army and Navy in its
operations, Tho other would bo that
such n selzuro would force troops to
be sent hero to defend these Islands,
thus dividing tho fleets, which would
render tho cupturo of the Philippines
an eaBy matter. This would nlso lay
tho Pacific Coast open to hostile at
tack. Urges Powerful Defenses.
llnwall therefore should bo so pro
tected and fortified by a land force
which would prevent nny hostile guns
and ships passing thoso forts without
"Tho sugar output of Hawaii is a
matter that should bo given tho grav
est consideration. Hates of transpor
tation are a matter of the most vital
"This sugar Bhould find other mar
kets than tho Pacific Coast, It should
be sent East nail given a general mar
ket against tlio Cuban product.
"There are two things which would,
I bcllove, accomplish this.
"An Income tax could bo levied by
tho government upon (hose of largo
means. A portion of this could bo tak
en to build lines of steamers, plying
between the mainland and the Islands,
thus giving cheap transportntlon from
I ho Islands to the mainland.
"Then Congress should glvo Hawaii
tho authority to build municipal steam
boat and railway llncB through tho Is
lauds for Inter-Island commerce, the
Hawaiian people Issuing bonds to ralso
money for tho purpose.
"These two things would, to my
mind, result In giving to Hawaii the
supremacy to which It Is entitled.
