THE MONROE DOCTRINE,
Tho United States May Have to
Fight for It.
LONDON, liny B. Secretur Root's
"Monroeism" nttrncts much attention.
The Spectator In treating It says.
"Tho American who takes tho trouble
to look the facts In the face cannot fall
to set) that tho doctrine cannot bu supported
on tall talk. America must nul
imagine that If sho ever sets Into a
controversy with a great Continental
Power she will bo treated as Lord
Salisbury, with tho full consent of tho
nation, treated her. Here we should
dread a victory over America, supposing
wo were able to obtain It, only one degree
less than defeat. Dut It is Idle to
suppobe that tho Continental Powers,
Germany for Instance, would taku such
things Into consideration. Granted Bho
wanted to Infringe upon the Monroe doctrine,
Germany would simply consider
whether America hud physical power to
maintain It. If she had not, Ami-i lea's
historical claims would not bo hold to bo
worth a straw."
Tho. Spectator then goes on to su that
no Power would dream of Invading America
but Germany. The paper adds: For
Instance, the latter country might get
Into a disputo with Brazil and prcparo to
occupy its territory. If America should
wish to enforce the Monroe doctrine she
must bo able to destroy tho Gorman
fleet. Her present fleet, olllccrs nnd men,
the article continues, are as good as
possible. They have superiors now More
and niuals only In the sister navy of
Great lirltaln. Rut there are too few of
Regarding tho strength of her forces,
tho paper bays: Clenrly, if, while Germany
Is building shins. America Is doing
little or nothing, America will not bo In
a position to fetter Germany's will or to
tell her that sho shall not make w hat
terms sho likes with the South Amcru.au
Tho Spectator disclaims In thoso alarmist
views any wish to tempt America to
take a warlike course or to mnko any Ill-
blood between America and Germany,
but maintains that Secretary Root Is
r ght and If ha sticks to tho Monroe doc
trine and yet refuses to prepare theio is
in storu lor America great Humiliation."
The paper concludes by reiterating the
authenticity of formor articles dealing
with Germnn activity In South America
and Its attendant dangers.

Vesuvius in Eruption.
NAPLKB. May 9. Tho activity of Vesuvius
Is becoming mora formidable, and
tho observatory ofticlals announce that
the seismic. Instruments are extremely
agitated. A thick column of sniokn Is
issuing from tho crater and the enrtli
shakes are violent.
The cable-car scrvlco up Mount Vesuvius
has been suspended. Four Englishmen
attempted to ascend tho mountain
on foot, and eluding tho vigilance of the
carbineers, who form a cordon at a
height beyond which the ascent Is considered
unsafe, they approached the summit.
Huddenly the volcano belched forth
a stream of lava and stones, which descended
upon the foolhardy tourists, who
wero rescued In a terribly bruised condition.

was no lack of the ludicrous. Thero
was no "slate." If there was It was not
pioduced. Instead there was a laugh-ab!o
want of anything In particular,
and In its place an unsatisfying 1111
of "free speech" and disorganization.
Nothing was accomplished except
the adoption of the- following resolu
tion which was offered by Charles L
Rhodes, City Editor of tho Star, and
which was passed without comment.
Resolved, That tho chairman of this
mettlng bo authorized to appoint n
of twenty-one to be, announced
through tho newspapers, to provide a
plan of enrollment nnd organization ami
to preparo an address to tho people of tin
Territory of Hawaii, and to report at a
meeting to bo called hereafter. Tho

Thero was considerable telling of
what Democracy is or ought to be, by
moro than one clotiucnt speaker, and
there was a flat-footed statement from
moro than one present thattiry did not
proposo to ally themselves with nny
party until they know more about them.
Thcro wero not many nt tho
meeting. A few seated themselves In
the rear of tho hall and listened.
Two natives spoke. Ono, John C
Bush, made statements curiously opposed
to ono another. A verbatim report
of his nddross will bo found further on.
J. K. Kaulla, who spoko In Hawaiian,
was Interpreted by Bush. Ho said that
ho was a "Mugwump" and had not 1
mado up his m.nu vwuch muo to lake.
William H. Marshall, who. with E. U.
McCIanahan mado tho principal
of tho evening, was ordered to
take ins sent by the chairman, but
iuscu. no continued talking until finally
forced to desist by cr!o3 of "Put him
out!" "Mako him stop!" nnd similar
demands for his censing his dUcourso
on nimseir and his opinions of tho lack
of liborty In Honolulu.
Beforo tho meeting closed a half hundred
left their places in tho body of tho
hall and wont homo, although It was
but little after 9 o'clock. It was remarked
that hnlf thoso present wero newcomers
to Honolulu, as their faces woro
strange to old-timers.

of this meeting. "During tho proceedings
of this evening," said he, "I
will try to net as the Doctor's other ear
to tho best of my nhlllty. Ab may of
you know, I havo resided In this country
for n vory long time. I havo never
voted tho Democratic ticket In tho
States. My affiliations in the States before
coming hero were Democratic I
was born a Democrat. When I was n
loy nt home I always looked forward
to the Democratic torch-light processions.
American politics aro to tno tho
nanio as they nre to n great ninny people
here who havo never voted them.
I havo not had any active participation
In politics. I hopo beforo long wo will
all understand and dlcest tho principles
of tho Democratic partv, and I havo vo
doubt but that tho Democratic party
will have n largo following In tho conduct
of affairs In this Territory In the
future. I have not formed any 'slate'
In connection with this meeting, ns It
Is only a preliminary meeting for tho
Democrats of Honolulu to get acquaint
ed with each other."
E. B. McOlanahan Talks
E. B. McCIanahan was the first speaker
of the evening called upon. Ho said:
Mr. Chairman, I feel some diffidence 111
talking Democratic principles In your
pusenco, for I bellevo that long before
I Knew anything about this worm, Dr.
McGrow knew all about Democratic principles.
Hut I assure, J mi, gentlemen, I
navo boldness In nppronchlng you as u
Deinociat and speaking to ou of tho
pilnclples of which 1 know. This Is an
honor to you and an honor to mo, that
we nie here tonight In this, tho first
meeting which tho Democrats are to
hold. When wo hnvo gone on through
life, wo will look back at this meeting
lth somo pleasure, and feel some pralo
tn tho fact that wo have attended a
meeting of this kind. It Is n strnngo
meeting and a stiange condition that
oncerns tho noniilo of this countiv. Most
ill of tho Hnwnlians who are hero on
ihn threshhold of tho now political life
nnd It now to Ilium. They have not on-
ned ot either door which stands open
or them. They have not made up their
nluils which wny to turn, and It Is not
o bo wondered at.
I am Indeed sin prised to Bee so many
lawnllaiiB hero, for they want to know
.vlilch way to turn, and that question
must bo decided by them beforo long.
So It seems to me it Is a compliment to
iho good senso of those who aro hesitating
In this matter that there aro among
us tonight thoso that have not decided
n their minds what party they will belong
to. I think 11 Is an omen of the
tummon senso of a man that ho does not
Jump at one conclusion, and Ignore, the
other, before making up his mind. This
reminds mo of tho story my father used
,o tell. He was In Arkansas, traveling
with two attorneys. They wero out fishing,
and stopped at a tavern In the mountains
that was presided over by a worthy
old gentleman. After tho supper was
Mulshed he was asked If thcro was anything
going on In tho vlllngo to while
away tho lime, nnd bo replied that there
was a debating society which wns to
meet, and he would like to have the
tlneo attend. So they betook thomselvob
to tho later in tne evening,
and thero found tho old
prisldlng over the meeting.
Horso and Cow Both Win.
The question of tho debate wns wheth
er II1U IUW VUH IIIUIU UBUlUI lllllll Ull
horse. It was suggested that one of the
lawyers tako the affirmative side and tht
other tho negatlvo side, nnd tho chair
man was to decide tho question. One ct
the attorneys opened tho debate, and as
ho waxed eloquent over tho cow, he saw
that the chairman was getting uneaxj
on his chair, nnd moved about nervously,
and he Miw, as ho wuiiuid up to his
subject, that ho bad tho chairman.
tho chairman Jumped up exclaiming,
"There Is no uso talking any more
about It, gentlemen, tho cow has It."
Of course tho other attorney Immediately
protested, and said ho had not been
heard yet and desired a hearing of li.s
side of ihe question. He was spurred on
by tho difficulties of his undertaking, and
ho was more than eloquent on the virtues
of tho horso over tho cow, and Boon he
saw ho was winning tho chaliman over
to his slue. Again tno chnlrmaa jumpiii
to his feet, and said, "Gentlemen, the
horsu has It."
So after you havo heard tho virtues of
the Democratic party, 1 hope thoso of
jou who nru undecided will suy for himself,
"I will follow tho Democratic party."

of Mnjubii Hill and the death of (leuernl
Cordon. The death of Gordon, he continued,
