cnnpre&s should decide not to rebuild tho drydoek. the decision
would include oni' to withdraw the ten thousand troops now here
nnd niter the plans to send an additionnl ten thousand. -It would
mean the stopping of work upon a hundred federal buildings now
going up for Army and Nay use. It would mean the dismantling
of the forts nnd the abandonment of nil further fortification' work.
Under present conditions of the new tariff it would menu

We do not believe that this is nn overdrawn picture. Tim dry-dock
is the re.ison for the naval stntiou, the naval Motion and
shops nnd depots nre the loasons for the forts and posts nnd
gnrrisons. Kill the drydoek plans and the. whole bottom is knocked
out of the nnvnl nnd niilitnry developments on Oahu. No reason
would exist for the mninteiinnce of more thnn n company or two of
regulnrs in the Territory.
Yet, swinging in his hammock at "Wnikiki, our to
Congress lolls nwny precious time. At Washington, the affairs of
Hawaii rest in the hands of n boy law-student, wlnTsc naive ideas of
things nntionnl nnd territorial are betrayed in the occasional letters
he sends to Ililo, beginning "Hear Dad." If he ever reports to Ku
hio, none ever sees or hears of his commiinicntious. We agree with
those who ask: "What could Kuhio do, nnyhow. if he were attending
to his work" but believe he should he at Washington, on
the job, nevertheless, if only to exeite pity for Hawaii by his own
helplessness nnd prevent every opportunity being taken to divert
the drydoek appropriation to the Coast.
It is n fact that the California delegation nt Washington is interested
in the mutter nnd will go after the drydoek and nil that
goes with it in n real California!! spirit. .It is true that their 'chance
is slim, amounting prncticnlly to nothing, but this will not prevent
them from trying. San Francisco landed the world's fair against
odds by trying nnd by sticking to it. California knows the value
of trying and by trying may get something. And if the get something,
where the drydoek is concerned, they get it all.
And Kuhio swings in his hammock. He is not even trying to do
something. He. is not even trying to sec if he can trv. He should
worry so long ns the hammock swings, the mvuahs flicker through
the sunshine, the poi sticks to fingers and the tang stays in the
The ambition of Jnpnn is that the nations of the western world
shall acknowledge the social equality of her people. The Occidental
concept of the racial nncestiy of the .Japanese people is nt fault.
Wc westerners are prone to n looseness of expression when speaking
of foreign peoples. Thus Americans often lump all the races
of southern Kuiope .Spanish, Italian and Wreck together, and refer
to them in bland carelessness as "Dngoes." To the majority of
Americans the colloquial cognomen of Oriental, or, "Mongolian"
means indiscriminately Japanese, Chinese anil Korean, and in thai
looseness of chninctcrizatiou we give offence to the Japanese.
The Japanese people nre not of Mongolian ancestry. They are,
like every other virile race that has made for itself a place among
the proud family of the great world poweis, n race of composite
origin Semitia, Aryan, Tartar and .Malay, the Aryan predominating.
Westerners associate the Japanese with the Chinese or pure
Mongolian because when Japan first became a n.ition nine hundred
years ngo nnd the necessity arose for creating a writteir liihgunge
suitable to the requirements of rapid internal development,, the
Ynmnto men, who were to Japan what, the Normans were lo Kng
land, disenrded the rugged speech of prehistoric times and adopted
bodily the highly flexible written language of China. The race remained
the same, Aryan in every characteristic of thought, speech
und action. To continue to elas the Japanese as "Mongolians" is
ns incorrect nnd as unscientific as to say that Americans nre Celts
or Huns. The virile old Aryan tongue of Japan is preserved to us
in the Kojiki, the Nihongi and the Mnnyoshiu which have been compared
to the Nibelungeiilied of Germany, or the Deuteronomy of the
llebrews. It also survives to this day in the speech of the Ainu who
nre the remnants of that aboriginal white race winch occupied the
whole of Japan before tho coming of the conquering Yamatn, who.
in turn, were themselves a tribe or race originating in that cradle
of all Aryan peoples the highlands of southern Asia. Japan remained
for n thousand years an unknown cTmntry, with a population
sufliciont unto itself and within itself, while the nations of the
western world were hammering out their destinies on a thousand
battle fields. Then to this hidden land there came in one miglitv
revelation the vision of occidental achievement Arynn Japan, like
n newly awakened sleeper, stretching its muscles, sprang to the self-
appointed task of national regeneration. What Japan hrts
wilhin the sixty yenis since Commodore Perry carried the
American flag through the straits of Shinionoseki has never been
equaled in all tho written history of all mankind This is certainly
not n Mongolinn ncliieveinnnt, and it would bo well that wo of the
western world should concede to our cousins on the other side of
the Pacific the full recognition of common nncestiy.

"During Jptwbw and OotBlwr. the Cawt Artillery has completed
its annual course of field training ax Infantry Thin training
lins been taken up and followml during tha (mat three years with
a view to the probable uae of Coast Artillery aa infantry. It is
understood that in ease of necessity at least two brigades at wai
strength, about nine thousand men. would be withdrawn front the
coast defenses for this purpose. This ti Mining and the euiitemplatefi
use of the Coast Artillery brings up the very inteiustiug question
as to whether it would not be advisable to tniiisfer this number o(
men to the infantry, the officers taking rank netoiding to date ol
original .roininission. . 1
"If we; eorisider present, and probable future, conditions, it is
evident that the occasions on which Const Aitillery, as such, wil.
be employed are iclatively few in comparison with infantry. On
the other hand, domestic conditions and the necessity of 'fulfilliup
our obligations as implied by the Monroe Doctrine make the need
for an increase in infantry nppaieut; that this is so is evident frou
the infantry training now being given to the coast artillery. When
the occasion arises, it is proposed to withdraw from the sen consi
foHn approximately nine thousand men for use as infantry, lcv
111 guns, ns is now the case in many instances, in the hiiuds of eaie
takers. If this can be done with safety when war is in pi ogress
with all the possibility of international complications, theie seeno
no good reason why it cannot he done now nnd the transfer sug
gestcd made at once, thus giving the increase to the arm which
"When our foreign garrisons nre complete, tllero will lemnin ii
the United States but seventeen regiments of infantry. The PI111
of Itcorgnuintiou of the Laud Forces contemplates three infniitr;
divisions in the United States, twenty-seven regiments. If the at
tillery be transfer! cd ns proposed, there can be formed nt
without additional cost, nine legiineiits of infantry, which will
make ii total of twenty-six out of the twenty"-seven required in the
"The balance nf the Const Artillery, about nine thousand men
will form a nucleus which can be rapidly expanded should we find
ourselves involved in a foreign ynr. To do this, there is a Cons'
Artillery militia reserve, to the development'' of which a great deal
of attention has been devoted in past years." In mldition to, this
some such plan could be adopted for the infantry ns is now used ii
the Coast Artillery. For example during each year, infantry regi
ments stationed near the coasts could be given one month's drill ii
the coast defenses, during which period they would acquire the saim
knowledge of artillery work that the artillery now does of the worl
of the iufnntiy. In this way they could learn the use of the heavy
guns so in the event of a foreign war a certain proportion could be
used,, if necessary, for sen coast defense. That this is possible ii
evident, not only from the parallel case as exemplified by the cons!
artillery-infantry training of today, but from the fact th'nt the Marine
Corps, primarily nn iufanjry force, is used to man certain guns
on ship board. While it is recognied that, there must be with eacl
Coast Artillery company a few highly trained experts, it is thought
that n very moderate amount of training will suffice to teach the
infantry the duties of tlie average artillerymen.
"Ulns. Miggestioti beeonsideieij, it j.e,eii Jo hnve this value
that-it-Will give" us nine regiments' nf infantry for which there is r
recognied immediate use, nnd without additional cnst.and will stil'
leave suflleient trained artillerists as n nucleus for training and expansion
should there be occasion for their services.
"Another, and perhaps better, method of accomplishing the de
sired result would be to consolidate the infantry and the Coast Ar
tillery so that they may be used as most needed. If Coast Artillery
in addition to its legitimate duties can learn those of infantry, it is
evident that the converse is true mid the necessity for the separate
branches disanpeais. The resulting economy is evident."
We would be glad to see the question discussed bv officers of in-fun
try nnd coast artillery.
AVIATION'S GREAT OBSTACLE.
Aviation fatalities ate so much of an old story, so very commonplace,
that the average man no longer takes moie thnn an incidental
interest in them. In fact, so little note is made of the individual
accidents by most newspapeis that very probably there are many
persons who imagine that air flying is becoming safer as the height
and distance records become more prodigious. Sijch a conclusion
is natural to the casual reader dependent upon glaring
his mental sensations.
To such persons it will probably be something of 11 shock to 'learn
that the aeroplane this year has demanded more victims thnn cvei
before. In PJIU, according to the Detroit Free Press, the iiunibei
of fatalities in flight was one hundred nnd twenty. This season one
hundred and forty-live have been killed. The total has not 1 cached
Hud Murs's sensational estimate of two hundred per season, but
it is fast climbing toward that total, mid it is now estimated that
the deaths since the machine came into being amount
lo nlniost ten per cent of the number of licensed pilots. This is
as linit as war.
Until something is accomplished to stop this frightful mortality
the science of aviation cannot become genuinely utilitarian. Its
usefulness to the world has reached its limit und a halt must be
made until some distinctly ii"w step forward is taken by the inventors.
This might seem a rather sad situation wore it not that reports
of success which novel types of niiuihiiios are beginning to find their
way into print, and indeed one machine, the invention of mi
is credited with being the sought. for achievement. It is
claimed for it that it is iioiMmpsitihle, and that it nan ho run by
the gieouest niiintoiir. A story is told, indeed, of n light across the

, ONE JKONTH TO CHRISTMAS.
One mouth from today is Christmas Day nnd the time is nt bund
when the motto: Shop Knrly, has a real meaning. It is possible
mow to plan and execute in time to prevent the Inst moment rush
which is so trying to nil concerned. Those who can shop at any
time, if they shop early, liuike room for those whose hours are strictly
defined by their circumstances. The latter, if they plan their eain
:aign properly, can make room for those who enn not buy their gifts
inlil the Inst moment. The stores nre nil ready. They await the
irrival of the. busy season with anxiety born of long experience. As
1 rule everybody delays from day to day until to their surprise
''hristinas week is upon them, nnd then they shop with n fury and
oiiccntrntioii which spread over n longer period, would be healthful
hut which, crowded into a few critical dnys or hours, results in nervous
prostintion. It is all to the benefit of the shoppers to shop early.
As for those who serve, their plight is easily imagined. They
want to be courteous, they desire to make n good record, nnd they
ire really anxious to give the customer what is asked for. Hut if
he public nt the Inst moment rush them off their feet, if they hnvc
o work 'oiig hours merely because people will not shop in time, they
hnve nn impossible tnsk. To nearly everybody the Christmas season
s suggestive of happiness nnd good cheer. To the shop assistant
'00 often it is n time to be drended merely because people will not
'louble to think a little ahead of their notions.
The advantage in selection nnd comfort nre for those who shop
nrly, while they hnve the added satisfaction of knowing that they
have made life easier and Christmas happier for some by lessening
what is hard enough work under the best circumstnnces,

NAVAL MOVES IN MEDITERRANEAN.
Xavnl interests in the Mediterrnnenn, which for n long time past
hnve been engaging the attention of the Hritish government, ns the
recently announced squadron to be added to the Hritish Mediterranean
fleet proves, become anew n topic for discussion in view of
i remnrkably frank nrticle nppenring in the "Mngdeburger
from the pen of General Alfred Breusing.
The following extracts, dealing with tjie role to be plnyed by
German cruisers in the Mediterrnnenn, nre especially interesting in
view of the suggestion that, by the terms of n. treaty eventunlly to
be concluded with Spnin. the latter will assist in the transport of
the French army corps from Algeria to Europe in ense of necessity
"According to trustworthy information," says General Breusing,
"our cruiser flotilla will remain permanently in the Mediterrnnenn.
This flotilla consists of the lnrge cruiser Goebe'n (23,000 tons) nnd of
three very 'modern sinnll cruisers, tho Strnssburg, the Bresliiu, and
he Dresden (4.")."i0 tons). It has not been recalled despite the
wenkening of our High Sen Fleet in the North Sen. The object
if our cruisers will be to prevent the transport to Frnnee of two nrmy
eorps G3.000 men now in .Africa. The French fleet possesses no
iruiser ns rapid ns ours. It could not. therefore, destroy our cruiser
division, which, moreover, would be supported by three fast Italian
"misers. The French fleet, then, enn not nssure the transport of the
French troops to the mother country. "Even were the repatriation
of the troops in Africn contemplated, which is doubtful, this
would be nttended by the greatest delays, nnd probnblv only
portions of the two African nrmy corps would be nble to rench Frnnee.
"Will England go to the help of France Y It is very doubtful.
The dnnger which she runs of losing Egypt. Australia nnd New
grows simultaneously with the power of the German navy. This
dnnger is not ignored in England, nnd thence comes the recent
tempt to conclude an entente with the German Empire."
LESS COTTON TO ORIENT.
The United States has been losing its position in the cotton go .,1s
trade of Asia, especially' in China, where 428,000,000 worth of American
cloth was sold in 1003, nnd $30,000,000 worth in 1!)0G. These
exports to China had 11 value of only $7,371,958 in the fiscnl year
ended June 30, 1912, which further declined to $3,790,327 in the
fiscal year ended June 30, 1913. ,
This loss of trade has been seriously felt by American cotton manufacturers
and exporters, and has led the department of commerce
lo undertake an investigation of the underlying conditions.
Agent W. A. Graham Chirk has been sent to China nnd Japan
to study industrial and commercial changes which cause these
declining sales. China is continuing its lnrge purchuses of cotton
goods, imports last year hnving exceeded $100,000,000, one-third of
which cimie from England, which is apparently holding its own in
this trade. Japanese mills have been multiplying nnd obtaining a
strong hold in the cotton goods trade in the Orient, where its sales
Inst year were nearly $50,000,000,
