FRIDAY, NOV. H,
He will constantly endeavor to
advance the interests and pros
perity of both GOVERNMENTS
and so render himself acceptable
to Your Excellency CUvtland to
Dole, Accrediting Minister Willis.
Kvcn if ihe policy of 1'iesiileiit Cleve
land is to be against the annexation ol
tins group to the United States, as
some have been led to predict, there
is no need for misgiving among the
friends of the cause as to the final issue
In the first place the party now 111
power is strong enough to hold its own
until conditions at Washington shall
rhanae in its behalf. Order can be
maintained, business and commerce
ran be protected and the financial
stability of the country can be made
unassailable. We may be lertain, it
we are compelled to wait, that Amen
can public sentiment, now so strongly
enlisted for annexation, will find means
to express itself through the machinery
of Government, If not at hand now,
out day of jubilee will come later.
It is common to see the misfortune)
of the moment overruled by Providence
to si rve the ends of human good and
who knows but that a delay in the an
nexation movement now may be the
one thing needful to bring all Hawaiian
parties into unanimity with the domi
nant cause. After it has been nude
clear to the Royalists that the monarchy
is dead, with no promise of resurrec tion,
the choice of Government will be
narrowed down to that of the Reform
party and that ot the great republic.
It is easy to see where the CT. Queen's
disbanded adherents would rally Be
fore two years perhaps before one
year had passed under present politi
cal conditions, the haters of what they
are pleased to call "missionary rule"
would be found under the banner of
annexation, demanding relief through
entrance to the privileges and equali
ties of the United States.
Therefore, as to the immediate
status of annexation:
In spite of pride, in erring reasons spile,
One truth is plain: whatever is, is right.
That the 22,000,000 men under arms
in Europe desire to have a war, is
chiefly the fact that makes a great con
flict probable. Statesmen might be
willing to split hairs for a long time, and
diplomats to play on the political chess
board Interminably; but what craft of
council can withstand the public opin
ion which 22,000,000 soldiers may
create, or avoid the casus belli which
it is within their power to bring about
by some precipitate action on the
frontiers. The mighty energies which
statesmen h ive been confining I r so
long a time must have their way in
spite of truces and combinations or ol
the prudent reluctance ot Kings, Piesi
dents and Premiers. It was by a nar-
now chance that war did not lately
break out over the small Italian ques
tion. Perhaps the next time there will
be no intervention in behalf of peace
by the capricious goddess of luck.
The character of the coming conflict,
considered as an example of the military
art, cannot be judged in advance by
precedent. There are now no veteran
troops and but few veteran generals in
the European field; hence the question
Incomes one of discipline, and new
arms anil missiles rather than one of
tested experience and valor on the
inarch and battlefield. The chief dis
turbance to speculative theories, how
ever, is supplied by the improvements
in the material agencies of death. Ob
viously, the next war will be on an
entirely new plan. Smokeless powder,
doing away as it will with the aim-obscuring
canopy of battle, must add
vastly to the fatalities on both sides.
The use of dynamite and melanite will
have the same effect, as will the im
proved magazine rifles and the tremen
dous modern ordnance of the Krupp,
Canet, Woolwich and American type.
Human life will be blotted out by the
brigade the moment a face-to face
grapple comes to pass. Few will es
cape in the hurricane of deadly missiles.
Perhaps such a catastrophe is needed
to bring about the era of universal
peace which Tennyson foresaw when
he smg of the time when the war
drums should throb no longer and the
battle flags be furled in some mild
arliament of a human federate n.
1'he incentive to be a soldier is the
chance of glory and reward to follow
an escape from death in gallant mil
itary service. When less than five per
cent, of an army were likely to he
slaughtered in any given battle, the
easy risk of being one of the ninety
five per cent, to go through the ordeal
safely was worth taking. Had it been
the other way in the days of Auster-
litz arid Waterloo had the ninety-five
per cent, been doomed, or even forty-
live per Cent it is not to be supposed
that even the ambition of a Napoleon
r a Wellington would have sought 1 r
found many opportunities to hold a
pitched battle. By force of inventive
genius the time has come when the
ninety-five percentage of a fighting
army are in imminent peril of life.
Not a star, but a Coffin, is at the end
of ihe modern campaign for officer and
private soldier alike, and when that
truth is once revealed In continental
windrows of the maimed and dead,
let us have faith that there will lie no
molt wars. They would be too cosily
in both blood and tre asure.
A KoYu.iM contemporary needs to
lie reminded that the revolution was
not paused to much by the opium bill
as it was by the attempt of the Queen
to annul the constitution she had
sworn to support. The gravity of such
a crime w uld, under corresponding
Ircumstances in England, France or
the Ucited States, have led to the
Verthrow of Queen Victoria or of
Presidents Carnot and Cleveland. No
more serious cause 1 n a revolution
uld be found anywhere undei a lib
eial and enlightened System ol itilc. It
is quite enough to justify the 1 vein- ol
inuary 17th, without saying a word
about the opium or lottery scandals,
nor alioiu tne general tnarm ici 01 i.h
of character of the monarchy.

ircus man and we must congratulate

Gold in South Africa.
The gold fields in the Transvaal
republic in South Africa yielded over
136,000 ounces in August, which is
the largest product yet recorded in any
one month. In round figures a year's
output at the same rate would be woith
$32,500,000, which is about equal to
the annual production of gold in either
the United Slates or Australia. In the
countries last named, however, the gold
yield is about stationary, whereas it is
rapidly increasing year by year in South
Africa. If the Transvaal mines pro
duce $30,000,000 in 1893, there Mill
be $40,000,000 worth of gold mined in
1894 in all probability. Where the
top limit will be reached can hardly be
guessed. Good judges say that hun
dreds of squaie miles of territory are
underlaid with gold-bearing r. ck and
that the total yield of the region will
not fall below below $15,000,000,000.
