SUNDAY, APRIL
THE DIFFERENCE.
A striking illustration of tin- differ?
ence between Spain and the United
States is shown in the treatment ac?
corded the retiring ministers by the
people of the respective countries. In
spite of the fact that General Wood
ford had a government passport, com?
mending him to the good graces of all
Spaniards, the hoodlums of tin- cities
through which he passed vied wilh
each other in their efforts to heap In?
sults upon the American party. in
this country the Spanish minister
passed from the national capital to the
Canadian frontier without receiving a
single Insult. The United States gov?
ernment Is fighting a nation. Spain
seems to be pursuing a picayunish sort
of battle against isolated individuals.
The Americans are fighting for a prin?
ciple; the Spaniards for a prejudice
that extends to all Americans. In
this essential point lies the difference
between the war status of the two
nations.
And if we but had Hawaii these
daj'B!?Philadelphia Prets.
We fail to see how the islands could
be of any practical advantage to the
United States either now or at any
other time. They would simply fur?
nish a good safe point of attack for a
hostile fleet and would be much more
trouble than they could be worth to
Uncle Sam.
Some mathematically inclined genius
has figured out that it will cost $1,
500,000 to carry on a naval fight be?
tween two modern battleships for an
hour. At that rate Spain will not be
able to fight even a single round under
Marquis of Queensbury rules.
. According to a Paris dispatch every
Frenchman is against United States.
Itrfthe action of the French people in
the Zola affair is a fair criterion Un?
cle Sam has no reason for feeling bad?
ly over this ebullition of hostility.
We infer from the message sent by
the Prince of Monaco to the Queen Re?
gent of Spain that he. like Mr. i
has no desire to work up a war
