Annexation Unjust to America.
It might bo well for tho Federal
Government to ask itself at this
time, has this country not got morb
divono and opposed races undor itfl
Hag than it can deal with
Why should it seek to receive
into citizenship at ono swoop 80,000
proplo who are tainted with an
awful and ineradicable disease,
whose customs are alien to those of
this Republic, who are idle if not
vicious, immoral if not criminal, and
at tho same, moment keep guard at
tho ports of tho Atlantic Goat so
that no single objectionable immigrant
sball sot foot on those shores?
Aro theso Europeans who arn thus
debarred refused admission to this
country sololy becauso they would
cheapen tho price of labor iu a market
uhich is alroady overflowing
Not at all. Those are reasons and
important ones, but there is a greater
principle in tho background. It
is that they havo in numbers too
vast to be assimilated in our republican
life, aud that thoir increasing
presenco is a menace to tho State.
Then why should these people of
tho Sandwich Islands be brought
into the Union? Their sooial life is
as antagonistic to ours as that of
that flood of immigration we are
now stopping on the Eastorn Const.
They havo a country, it is true, that
is rich with possibilities, but it is far
distant, exposed to attack in case of
war indefensible, requiring great
oullay for administration purposes
and out of touch everywhere with
tho. genius of the American people.
There is no commercial profit to
be looked for that is not ours
or that the legitimate efforts
of trade cannot secure. There is no
strategic value in an island, which,
if regarded as a protection to the Pacific
Coast, is 2000 miles from it.
Ono might as well say that the island
of St. Helena serves that end
for the Cape and South African
colonies. It can be of no value as a
coaling station, because there it no
probability that the great fleets will
ev' r maneuver there. Its annexation
would be uujust to its people
and nupowii Philadelphia Times.
Tho Wiong Boason
Tho Detroit Free Tress, speaking
with regard to tho Hawaiian annexation
suhemo, adopts the right conclusion,
but gives tho wrong reason
for it as follows:
"Annex Hawaii, 2200 miles distant,
possessing a population incapable
of appreciating American ideas of
government and morals, and there
can bo no valid excuse for not admitting
Cuba, lyiug close to our
doors aud possessing a Christian
civilization. Let Mr. McKiuley yield
tho coterie of plotters who so cunningly
workiug Congress for the
furtherance of their island-grabbing
project, and ho must, to bo consistent,
reverse his attitude toward the
Our interest in Cuba and tho
other West Indian islands is vital
and imperative. They command
the Gulf of Mexico and tho Caribbean
Soa. They are within half a
day's sail from our coasts and most
intimately connected with this nation
in commerce. Beyond that
every instinct of humanity and American
freedom, as woll as our traditional
policy, evokes our sympathies
aud aBsistauco with all efforts of
theso people to establish aud maintain
Spain is ready to quarrel with us
for her supremacy over Cuba, which
she has reduced to a desort. Germany
is undor the suspicion of got-ting
ready to grab a West Indiau
foothold in Hayti.
Tho vital and traditional interest
of the United States is iu theso islands.
We should bo ready to prevent
Europeau aggressions thoro,
With these possibilities ponding, to
waste strength in trying to hold an
ishnd in tho Pacific that wo have
not tho slightest use for is a blunder
at once fatuous and pusillanimous.
If it be truo, as roporled, that tho
administration will accopt Spain's
plan of autonomy in ordor to push
the Hawaiian job through Congress,
it means an abandonment of American
policy aud a fatal error. Pittsburg
Expects His Doc to Go to Honvon.
The Listoner has received many
letters of sympathy for tho death of
his dog Mac. He is gratoful for
them all. Thoir tono of strong
sentiment and tho loftiness of thoir
ideaB prove to him anew that tho
lovo of animals is ono, of tho most
spiritual things that wo havo iu our
nature. Nearly evory lettor expresses
a more or less firm acceptance
of tho notion that some part at
least of tho greatly lovod and do-voted
dog will survive to meet some
part of the human in anothor form

Reflection of a Bachelor.
After a while tho women will got
up a movement to have a curfew
rung for the men.
Tho reason why most old bachelors
havo never married is because
they havo uevor asked any girl.
Whou a girl can't judge a man by
the company he keeps, she judges
him by tho creases in his trousers.
There may bo such a thing as a
man convinced agaiust his will, but
there never was a woman convinced
any way at all. N. Y. Press.
