Tho strategic) arguinont for
has been used with vain aud
various reiterations. Our Pacific
Coast is represented as defenseless
unless we have 2000 miles
away. Senator Perkins disposed of
this arguinont after tho manner of
its prior treatment in The Call, iu
his speech iu Oakland last weok.
He said that sending ooal 2000 miles
across tho water and then sending
our warships there tq gut it in order
to defend San Francisco was strategy
incomprehensible to tho common
mind, and bo it is.
He also disposed of the argument
that the islands staud right iu the
path of commerce between this port
and Asia, by proving that the shortest
path for ships to Japan and
China leaves Hawaii 1600 miles to
The ponding annexation treaty
proposes that the United States
shall assume tho S-1,000,000 debt of
tho Dole oligarchy aud pay it. That
is a high price to pay for suoh
strategy as the Senator describes for
a in tho path of
commerce that lies 1600 miles out
of that path.
It is in the day's news that Groat
Britain is making a show of her war
fleet at Esquimalt, to demonstrate
the anchorage and maneuvering
capacity in tho shelter of that
Gibraltar of the North. Thoro she
is in touoh with the mainland, with
ooal at hand, with open water and a
way to deep water ovon without
using tho strait of San Juan do Fuca
for an oxit. Her power is within
striking distance of tho coast from
San Diego to the passes of the
Aleutian Arohipolago. She is within
steaming distance, out and back,
without roooaling, of the real path
of our Asiatic commerce
The proper answer of this country
to Esquimal is San Erancisco,
an impregnable foothold on the
mainland, within easier striking distance
of tho whole coast. The
S-1,000,000 of Dole's debts we undertake
to pay should instead be spent
hero to plant on the heights overlooking
Golden Gate and tho sea a
system of offensive aud defensire
works that can keep all fleets beyond
shelling distance of our shores aud
protect always tho oxit of our own
men-of-war to sweep the open wator
clear of an enemy.
To proteot our position in Hawaii
will cost $4,000,000 at leaBt, added
to paying for Dole's dead horse,
and when the whole $8,000,000 is
taken from our people the coast, as
far as protection is concerned, will
bo just where it is now.
The shadow of Esquimalt will be
upon it all, and wo will be shivoring
in its shade.
It may be said that there will be
no war with England. Let us hope
not, but of our four great wars two
have been with her. It is neighboring
nations that go to war. A war
that would at all disturb ub must
be ouo in which wo can be invaded
by land. The invasion would come
from Mexico or the Dominion of
Canada, and in either case an invading
force would havo the co-operation
of a fleet. The Goths wero safe
in Carthage until Belisarius
an army along tho south shore
of the Mediterranean Sea, with a
fleet keeping step with his legions.
With thoso tactics in action
against us what protection would wo
get from Hawaii 2000 miles away?
It is plainly the duty of the members
of Congress from these coast
Statos to defeat annexation. Let
Dole keep his dead horse; indeed,
compel him to keep it by warning
him thatho is within the Monroe
hemisphere, aud will not bo permit-
tod to unload upon any foreign nation.
It is to our highest interest
that Hawaii shall bo independent
and neutralized, so that this Switzerland
of the soas will not havo to bo
defenddd at our cost, nor beoomo n
point of vantage to a possible enemy.
