ISLAND rilAWO HDMOTTJCT). BATfHWAOTTnW RITA U A NTKKD
Tho Hawaiian Question.
Ex-Secretary Herbort, iu his
Forum articlo outilled "A Ploa for
the Navy," remarks that "if wo annex
Hawaii wo mustadd largely to
our PnciOo flootj wo cannot
defend this outpost 2000 miles
from our proeout boundaries." Ho
shows thai wo already have a dispute
on our hands with Japan regarding
Hawaii, and while he hopes
(hat it may not load to a conflict,
he considers such a conflict possible
This loads him to a computation of
tho naval strength of tho two Pop ers
at tho scene of conflict, and of their
totnl fighting force if it wero all
assembled in the Pacific Ho Bays
that we are distinctly inferior to
Japan iu that quarter uow. Our
total force is, iudoed, superior to
thaf of Japan, but could we strip
our Atlantic seaboard in order to
fight iu the Pacifio? If we could do
so wo should still be at n steaming
distance of 15,652 miles from Honolulu
by the shortest route. Wo
could not reach the scene of conflict
under ninety-seven days from Now
York, and wo should need to take
coal five times en route at ports not
controlled by us, and wo should
arrive with almost empty bunkers.
Japau would bo within sixteen or
seventeen days of the islands, and
would, under present conditions,
have possessed herself of the islands
long before our fleet could come iu
sight. Could wo afterwards wrest
them from her? Not with empty
coal-bunkers. Suppose-, meanwhile,
that our relations with Spain should
becomo unsettled. Suppose that
our fiery, untamed Senators force
the hand of the Executive with a
bring on a war in the Atlautic.
Such a contingency i8 uot.iiupossihlo
iu Mr. Herbert's vioW. Ho thinks
that tho House woultl have passed
the Senate resolution if a vote upon
it could have been reached, and
"who is there to affirm that Presidents
will always resist the demands
mado upon them for warlike measures?"
So our present dilemma is this:
We aro nsked to annex Hawaii, and
before we can do eo wo have to take
up a dispute with a foreign Power
a dispute which conceruB no American
intereit and when wo begin to
count the cost we find that if a war
should presently grow out of it we
should be beaten in tho fir ft en
counter, and lose tho very thing
about which the dispute arose, But
supposing that tho matter were
amicably settled aud war avoided,
the very fact that thoro was such a
dispute teaekos us that "if we annex
Hawaii wo must add largely to our
Pacific fleet." That is Mr. Herbert's
quod erat demonstrandum. He believes
in a large navy not as large
as Oreat Britain's, perhaps not as
largo as tiiat of Prance, but still
large and one of his reasons is that
if wo annex Hawaii, we must have a
groat fnitroa''o on tho Pacific. Our
geographical situation is such that
if wo have Hawaii to tako care of
wo ueed two navies, since tho
ships could not roach the Pacific)
in timo even if they could be spared,
With Mr. Herbert's general argu
ment for a pretty largo navy wo do
not concern ourselves now. His
ronsoniug drawn from tho proposod
annexation of Hawaii is sound and
unanswerable, and it brings up tho
vital question whether it is wiso national
polioy to acquiro a dependency
2000 miles distaut whon tho
only certain consequonco is that wo
must incur a largo oxpense which
would othorwiso bo unnecessary.
This expense onto incurred will be
continuous, Naval architecture is
constantly "changing. Tho best
ships woar out in timo aud have to
bo roplaced, What is the original
expense, likely to bo? Wo must bo
prepared to copo with Japau at all
