Thero is no use of building
a Lieut to protect Hawaii uuloss wo
make it equal or superior to that of
our nearest rival.
Japan has five battle-ships and
one under contract, four armored
ctuisers, fifteen protected cruisers,
fourteen gunboatB and lightly pro
tooted cruisers, sis torpedo gunboats,
and forty eight
aud destroyers. Her total uavai dis
placement is 180,057 tons. Ours is
210,705 tons in both oceaus. Our
ordinary Pneifio fleet consists of ono
battle-ship, two monitors, four
cruisers and gunboats. Wo have on,
the coast of Asia six cruisers in addition.
Wo shall need, in order to bo
a match for Japan, four or five more
and about Bovolity five
other craft of varying sizes Tho
whole would cost botweon 550,000,
000 and $100,000,000 with an annual
charge of $10,000,000 for maintenance
aud wear and tear. If wo
should get intn a war, with all this
costly apparatus, the oxponso would,
of course, bo much inoreasod. Wo
should uoed defences on land as
well as on wator. Honolulu aud
Pearl Harbor would require a system
of fortification all tho more
complete by reason of their distance
from tbo military support of the
United States. The amount to be
spent upon such works would probably
bo determined for us by the
Tho maiu question suggested by
Mr. Horbort's article relates to the
effect of all this upon the national
oharactor. Wo go abroad to get
something that we do not need,
something that wo nover had beforo
a distant colony or dependency.
Tho possession of it requiros us to
arm. It turns our thoughts away
from their ordinary peaceful channel
more or loss. Wo spend .our
money for implements of destruction.
Other natious, seeing our
armament increasing, add to their
own, and then .we add to ours. Wo
follow tho bad example of the old
world, where it is said that evety
peasant goes to his work carrying a
soldier on hU back. That examplo
which has so long served as a warning
to m becomes an object of imitation
distant imitation, perhaps,
but who can sot bounds tu a war
spiri. once onkiudlod?
Mr. Herbert tolls us that democracies
are very touchy. He tolls us
that France declared tvur against
Prussia because tho government
could not resist the Paris mob, and
that Greece rushed against Turkoy
for a similar reason. Ho says, too,
speaking of Americans, North and
South, "that an opportunity to
mako common cause against a public
enemy would meet a widespread
welcome," and he means this re
gardless of the reasons for fighting.
He means that a fight about something
or about nothing would meet
with a widespread welcome. It
would also meet with widespread
disapproval unless it wero a fight in
but the favor with
whioh a wur would bo weloomed
would depend muoh upon our previous
preparation- for, it. When wo
got ready to defend Hawaii against
an Asiatic world' iu arms, we shall
be all tho more ready to hurl defiance
at tho rest of the world in
arm', aud, according to the Herbert
hypothesis, all tlio moro likely to.
Whftt wh want of Hawaii moro
than wo now have, nobody has evor
protended to tell. If we waul a
coaling station and a fort, we havo
that now, or nt all events the right
to make them. Tho existing'freatv
with tho islands gavo us this privilege
moro than twenty years ago,
yet wo did not avail ourselves of it.
Wo have tho same privilego at
Samoa, and wo havo not used that,
although wh ouce eont a ship there
with a load of coal, Do we want to
bring in Hawaiian sugar free of
duty? We havo beon doing that for
moro than twenty years. Tho Bamo
treaty that gavo us Pearl Harbor for
a naval statiou provided for the introduction
of Hanaiiau Migar free.
Those things are in our own power
without annexation.) What other
reason exists for saddling ourselves
with tbo responsibility and cost of
We cannot bo yearning for moro
population? Last winter wo passed
n bill to provont tho increaso of po
pulatlou from Europe, and Prosidout
Olovoland vetoed it for reasons
which did not go oxactly to tho root
of tlio question. The incident
proved cloarly enough that public
opinion is not favorablo to au
of our uumberB by immigration,
but if it wero so it would not
bo favorable to tho kind of peoplo
that compose tho bulk of the population
of Hawaii. Ono of tho prime
conditions of annexation insisted
upon by us is that four-fifths of tbo
peoplo to bo annexed shall not bo
oitizons of the United States, and
shallnovor couio to tho main land
at all. So tho only reason for annexation
that can be put on paper
and argued pro aud con is that wo
may acquiro a lot of pooplo whom
wo detest and despiso aud refuso to
as3oeialo with on any terms. To
this and wo are asked to build a
Prtcific navy forthwith equal to that
of Japan, and keep it equal at all
times. If thero are other reasons
for annexation connected with the
Diugley tariff, such reasons may bo
potent with the President, whom
sudden "flop" on this question has
nover been explained, but they cannot
be valid with Senators, not oven
with Diugloyites, seoiug that tho bill
has already passed and gone into
effoct. N. Y. Evening Post.
Gladstone's Royal Ancestors.
It is not known by many that Mr.
William Ewart Gladstone, Englaud's
great coromonor, claims direct descent
from Honry III, King of
England, and from Robert Bruce,
King of Scotland. Among his
too, is Lady Jano Beaufort,
who married King James I of
Scotland. The latter, while captive
at Windsor, becamo acquainted with
Lady Jane, and tEo young couplo
were wedded ntf the old church of
St. Savior, at the Southwark foot of
Loudon Bridge. When released from
captivity James took his bride to
share his Scottish throne. After
his assassination his widow, disconsolate
for a lime, married Sir James
Stuart, and, from lino to lino, at last
descended Anne Robertsou, who, in
April, 1800, "married Joseph Glad
stone, father of the Graud Old Man.
It is not through lack of revorouco
for tho throne that Mr. Gladstone
has more than once refused a
perngo, but from the firm bolief
that modern titles can uoufer no
honor upon his ancestral blood.
