AS TO ANNEXATION.
It is unfortunate Hint the friends
Hawaiian annexation In Congress
should consider it necessary to tack
that proposition on to the war revenue
bill. It goes without saying that a
?war cannot he conducted without se?
curing the revenue from somewhere.
. and it is obvious that the s.ler the
war revenue bill is put into operation
the better it will I..- for I nch- Sam'x
cash account. Therefore, no unneces?
sary step should be taken to obstruct
its passnage. It is one of the riec
sary evils of war and the quicker it is
begun the sooner it will be possible
get rid of It.
So far as the annexation of Haw
is concerned. It is difficult to sec either
the wisdom of the move or the benfits
that are to accrue from such action,
unless the United States is to depart
from its time honored policy of re?
fraining from the popular pastime of
land grabbing. Of course. If the Phil?
ippine Islands are to be held as one
of Uncle Sam's possessions a coaling
station at Hawaii would be an abso?
lute necessity, and doubtless the best
way to have undisputed title to such
a base of supplies would be to annex
the Sandwich group and make it a
part of the United States. Put it Is
.. "by no means cerium ... i it.?.? tho
Philippines will tie retained an an
American colony, and it Is difficult to
see why there should be so much haste
in adopting a policy which a minority
of the members of Congress favor, but
fear to trust on Its own merits.
Those who oppose annexation at
present on what they consider logical
and reasonable grounds should refuse
to be held up In this summary way.
Let the war revenue bill be settled on
Its own merits, and then, if the exi?
gencies of the times demand action on
the other matter let *!1 be settled on
Ro own merits.
In view of the fact that a reciprocity
agreement between the United States
and France was signed yesterday it
must strike the mind of ordinary intel
. ligence that a good many of these re?
ports concerning French hostility to
American interests exists only in the
diseased Imaginations of a few preju?
diced persons. Great nations seldom
bind themselves together by closer
commercial ties at a time when each
has a knife up Its sleeve.
The Columbia may not be so good on
warships, but what she can do for the
merchant vessels is a caution. If the
Btraiegy board wants to do a real
clever bit of work they should order
the Columbia over to the Spanish coast
at let her anchor there. Its dollars to
doughnuts that if the Spanish fleet
ever got around In her neighborhood
It would collide with her.
v After the whole thing is over some
s-enterprising newspaper should hire
Admiral Cervera to write up his ex?
perience as the it" of the interesting
.game of hide-and-seek in the Carrlb
"bean Sea. . '

ihat if Schley and Cervera
