TO BE OR NOT TO BE It seems now to be fairly determined that the Hawaiian treaty of annexation will not be pressed to a final settlement at the present session of congress. This course is manifestly a most judicious one. The manifold bearings of the pro ject are worthy of the closest scrutiny and the fullest consideration as em bodying a new experience in the path of our national development. It is a fact worth remembering that in this country the special capacity known as states manship is not the exclusive attribute of presidents and senators, and that in all public questions of the first magni tude the popular sentiment is consulted to advantage. Upon the question of an nexing the Hawaiian republic there are decided convictions pro and con. In the absence of a settled sentiment by the general public upon the expediency of this measure a brief resume of the views that are advanced upon the whole ques tion may be of Interest. On this subject Senator White may be considered as standing among the leaders—as he is about the most outspoken—of the oppo sition, and his views very fairly set forth the attitude of the opposition. It is urged in that behalf that by annexing Hawaii we are placing a premium upon the schemes of certain adventurers who, it is said, are mere usurpers; that, hav ing first subverted a government they come now and seek to have their usurp ation ratified by the government of the United States by a treaty of annexation. That by the act of confirming this treaty we will have departed from our tradi tional policy concerning territorial ac quisition and entered upon a new and dangerous policy of territorial aggrand izement. That the acquisition of these islands will involve the expense of great necessary additions to the strength of our navy, and the further expense of building fortifications and providing further necessary defenses abroad, while our shores are not properly pro tected at home. That annexation will bring with it a flood of unawimilatlve people .chiefly Japanese, Chinese, Por tuguese and Kanakas, to the volume of a hundred thousand or thereabouts, and that all these drawbacks are to be sup plemented by a debt of $4,000,000. This is the negative position as thus far out lined. On the other side it appears that the great majority of the senate is in favor of annexation. Here it is urged that without the possession of Hawaii the United States has no base of commer cial or naval operations in the Pacific. That our expanding commerce in the Pacific makes the possession of these islands a matter of urgent necessity. That as a matter of safety to the Pacific coast cities, in case of war, the posses sion of Hawaii is equal, from a naval standpoint, to a fleet of a dozen power ful warships cruising at sea. That the government of the United States is> committed to a policy of preventing the acquisition of these Islands by any other nation, and hence to refuse to receive them now is to invite a war with some other government that might annex the islands upon an application such a? that which we decline. Such a war with any flrst-class power could cost us more in twelve months than the defense of the islands would entail in half a cen tury, and more than would supply our navy with two battleships for every one that we have now in commission, be sides. That the policy of refusing the petition of the Hawaiian government and at the same time demanding that no other nation shall grant the terms that we decline, is wholly indefensible, if measured by any recognized standard of national good faith. That the island republic, so far from becoming a burden would be a valuable acquisition apart from its strategic importance, as may be shown by the volume o£ its commerce- Its Imports last year amounting to $7,000,000. These are some of the propositions that are likely to be discussed before the treaty shall be confirmed, and the senate has acted wisely In Its practical sub mission of the whole question .to the forum of public opinion. It Is probably safe to predict that before the senate reconvenes after the expiration of the present session the question of expedi ency will be settled. In effect, so that tho action of the senate will be a mere for mality. THE MILLENNIUM EN ROUTE Saturday our much esteemed contem porary, the Times, stalwart Republican In politics, and keeper of the presidential conscience in this part of the globe, dis cussing the tariff schedule on wood pulp emphatically condemned the proposed increase in the duty on this commodity. The Times says: The Dingley bill, as reported by the ways and means committee of the house, increased the duty on wood pulp from an ad valorem basis of 10 per cent., or about $1 per ton, to a specific basis of 1-12 of a cent per pound, or $1.66 per ton. This change of duty is equiv alent to an increase of about 50 cents per ton In the cost of paper, or 2Va cents per 100 pounds. There are excellent reasons for the placing of wood pulp on the free list, and it is to be hoped lhat in the new tariff law as ultimately enacted it may be found there. The enormous con sumption of wood pulp in the manu facture of paper makes serious inroads upon forest growth. So long as we can draw from abroad a considerable proportion of this raw material of pa per manufacture, so long can we to that extent preserve our forests from d"nudation. Going on, our contemporary pleads for free trade In wood pulp, on tho grounds that to shut out the foreign article would facilitate the efforts of certain large mill owners to bring all of the large newspaper mills into a gigantic combi nation or paper trust. Saturday evening came out the other Republican daily of the city, the highly esteemed Express, with an editorial on "A Tariff Commission." This "Defender of the Republican Faith, by the Grace of Mark Hanna," after stating that a plan is before congress for this purpose, says: This bill or one like will undoubted ly some day become a law. for two rea sons. One is that the whole tendency of government is toward relegating the details of public business to commis sioners, it having been found impos sible adequately to transact national affairs otherwise. The other is that the tariff question is rapidly coming to be regarded by both parties as a business matter and not a fit subject for party fireworks. That ends the whole tariff battle. The tariff war drums shall beat no longer. The political battle flags may be furled. The enemy has capitulated without con ditions. Under another metaphor these advocates of the Republican cause have argued themselves out of court. They have stated our case and we are willing to let it go to the jury on their argu ment. The Times' excellent reasons against levying the tax on wood pulp for the sake of protection will apply with equal force to all the other schedules in the Dingley bill. The "facilitating of combines or trusts" incident to a pro tective duty on wood pulp is equally an incident of the whole protective pro gram. This is not a theory. It is the condition of all protected industries. These trusts are now eating the life out of all our industries and oppressing all classes of the people. The only way to destroy trusts is to repeal all protective duties. We wish to add an emphatic commen dation to the views>of the Express. That the tariff question is a business matter and "not a fit subject for party fire works" is sound Democratic doctrine. In the language of Shylock, "Most learned judge, most wise judge, how much more older art thou than thy looks!" But where is all last fall's great cry that "Protection was the real issue in the campaign?" The only way to take the tariff out of politics is the Democratic way. Levy duties for revenue only and the whole thing is done. Put everything on the list of dutiable articles, place an ad valorem duty on everything and of equal rate on everything imported into the country, and even the tariff commission may be dispensed with. When too much revenue is coming in, lower the rate 1 per cent, and when too little is coming in, raise it 1 per cent. That will do the whole busi ness. It will take the tariff out of poli tics. It will make It a matter of busi ness, and it will cease to upset business every few years, to the great detriment of all industries. We desire to welcome both our Re publican contemporaries into the Dem ocratic fold at once—at least so far as the tariff question goes. CENTRAL AMERICAN FEDERA TION Efforts have been made for a good many years to bring together the five iittle- republics of C-r.tral America un der a single government on the plan which the United* States' was the first to adopt, and which has been followed by ilexico, Brazil, Colombia, and: other South American countries. This coun try has aided in the work as far as it could. The sending cf a single minis ter to the five countries was a sugges tion that their union would receive the approval of our government. Minister Williamson, appointed by President Grant, exerted himself to bring about a union, and with considerable effect. The obstacle? to consolidation have been fac tions and feuds, prompted by ambitious demagogues. It now appears upon the surface that Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Salvador arc acting in pretty good ac cord, and that though Costa Rica has assented to the plan of consolidation, there is opposition on the part of some of the leading men. Federalization of those countries would be hailed 1 with satisfaction by the civilized, world, and as the people of all those states are of the same Wood, pptak the same language, profess the same religion, and as there LOS ANGELES HERALD* WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 23, UM see me to be no necessary conflict of in terests. It has been surprising to sen sible men that they did not long ago com bine and form one nation. By such an act there would be less liability to emoutes and wars among themselves. Divided as they have been they have received little notice In diplomatic af fairs, and they are little known except for the frequent turbulence that has ex isted there. Central America is rich in natural resources, and by union and cor dial co-operation the republic would soon become strong and influential, at least In the affairs of the American con tinent, and' she would be able to more successfully defend 1 herself against the aggression of strong and unscrupulous nations. It is to be hoped that there Is patriotism' enough among the people, and a sufficient number of men of abil ity and virtue to enact and administer laws that will brfng prosperity, and pro mote the development of wealth and happiness of the people. No nation is more Interested than the United States In the welfare of Central America—in its peace and' ordfcr, liber ties and In commerce. The products l of the two countries in many respects are so dissimilar that reciprocal trade rela tions need not be forced, for they are nat ural results of inevitable conditions. Furthermore, the union of those 6tatcs Is in line with the policy of building up strong American nationalities, and of giving potency to American influence In the world's affairs. It is announced that the government proposes to adopt a commonmoney policy and' provide a medium of exchange that will circulate without discount or dis paragement in all the states. It Is a wise measure, for nothing scarcely has a greater Influence in bringing people to gether than having a mutual interest in the money with which they transact the business of life. This country hasihad an experience which demonstrates the advantages of a national currency over that which is provided by the states, and is without uniformity. No doubt our government will use its influence in proper ways to promote the success of Central American federation. NO DISPOSITION TO "ABSORB" Nothing can be further from the minds of those who are working for the suc cess of Mr. Bryan's visit to Los Angeles than that there should be any confusion with the distinctive Fourth of July cel ebrations. It is rumored that the Fourth of July committee is meeting with some objections on this score. The charge is made that Mr. Bryan's friends are try ing to absorb the Fourth of July cele bration. The objectors are probably trying to protect their pockets with a pretense of patriotism. Los Angeles should show Mr. Bryan and its other dis- inguished visitors how it celebrates the national holiday In the best, most en thusiastic and patriotic way. At Mr. Bryan's only public appearance in thli city his speech will eschew politics and consist of a patriotic oration. His only political utterances will be delivered at a private banquet, at which he will be the guest of the Silver Republican club No citizen, who is honest with himself can withhold his support from the Fourth of July committee on any such pretense as has been mentioned. IN BOTH CASES The following were closing stock quotations in Monday's market: Union Pacific 64 Sugar Refinery 123x4 Under the old Republican regime the scheme was to get the government to put up the money to build railroads and then let the debt go by default, trusting to paid lobbyists and skilled attorneys to keep the government out of its money and the property in the hands of the railroad monopolists. Under the new Republican regime the scheme is to pass a tariff bill fostering trusts and monopolies, and enriching them at the expense of the people. In the case of the Union Pacific rail road, the stock is nearly 94 per cent be low par and the government can't get its money back. Sugar refinery stock, under the power ful influence of a new high tariff bill, is 23-2 per cent above par. The people pay, in both cases. It Is intimated that General Woodford may be persona non grata to the Spanish government because many years ago he made a speech in favor of Cuban in dependence. If sentiment In favor of Cuban liberty is to be made a cause for rejection of an American minister, it may give the president some trouble to find a man acceptable to Spain. Per haps Hale of Maine may be induced to resign his seat in the senate and ac cept the mission. There are precedents for such action. Hale is sufficiently pro-Hc-'par.ian to suit the sensitive Spanish court, ar.d he might be able to serve the Spanish cause better in Mad rid than in Washington. If pressed to it Grover Cleveland might be sent over there, where he certainly would be re ceived with favor, ar.d besides he is at present a statesman without a job. For more than three months congress has been devising ways for protecting American productions generally, but nothing has yet been suggested to pro tect our silver production. Last year our Bllver mines yielded $76,000,000. uliich' is no inconsiderable item, and last month silver to the amount of nearly a million dollars was imported into thi9 country. Those who have a horror of silver ought to do something to keep out foreign silver. A duty of fifty cents per ounce would be effective. Protectionists ought to think of this. Such a duty would perhaps cause the price of silver to advance till silver coins would not be regarded as cheap money, and to coin it would not be de grading. The boys of California are deficient in neither brains r.or capacity for applica tion, and they do not suffer by compari son with young students' from other state. I . E. Delos Magee of San Diego, who has just graduated from the law department of Cornell college, won the first prize this year for the best law thesis submitted, his subject being "Is There a Federal Common Daw?" Mr. Magee is the first person to receive the entire first prise at Cornell, It usually being divided. Last year the first prise was won by Walter Ross of Stanford university, and the second by Mr. Rich ardson, also from Stanford. California ranks high at Cornell. The Herald believes In giving every cltlsen a chance to "say his pay" (pro vided he has something to say) even though his ideas do not fit in with the settled policy of the paper. For this reason we make room for a communica tion from ex-Senator Cornelius Cole In which he discusses the harbor question from an ultra Santa Monica standpoint. The great majority of people in South ern California do not agree with Sen ator Cole's views, but he is entitled to a fair hearing Just the same, and he de serves some credit for courage displayed in advocating a notoriously unpopular cause. Among the Sabbath day visitors to Redondo Beach this week was the re doubtable "Poker" Davis. Advices from that locality state that the gentle man met with the same cold reception that was extended to him at Santa Mon ica and San Pedro. If Santa Monica, San Pedro and Redondo can get along without "Poker" Davis and his gang, why cannot Los Angeles? The Associated Press dispatches show that big cargoes of Oriental goods are being rushed to this country to antici pate the effect of the new tariff law. Twenty thousand tons of freight have been brought to the port of San Fran cisco in excess of the regular carrying trade's shipments. It will take a long time for the new tariff law to get any flesh on its bones. The report that the sugar trust will buy Cuba may prove to be true, so far as ability to purchase goesi If a Repub lican administration prevails for eight or twelve years the sugar trust will be able to buy a good slice of the United Slates. Mr. Deboe, the new senator from Kentucky, calls at the White House every day. The Kentuckians must be unusually persistent office seekers. The list of premiums and honorable mention read at the St. Vincent college commencement exercises speaks well for that institution and Its students. There are about 8.000.000 human be ings in London today, but the authori ties are too busy to take a census. Who hold the Hawaiian bonds? Are the holders in favor of annexation to the United States? If so, why? Mr. Ralph R. Criswell has established a new Democratic paper at Santa Paula, which he calls the Sentinel. Queen Victoria's reign is the longest on record, and the Prince of Wales' wait is ditto. A NEGLECTED PHENOMENON They are writing them up, and they're writing them down.

Correspondents are requested to cultivate brevity as far as is consistent with the proper expression of their views.) Senator Cole on the Harbor Situation To the Editor of the Los Angeles Herald: Since the harbor commissioner:? made their report I have conversed with quite a number of the citizens, of Los Angeles on the subject, and all, without exception, have put their desire for har bor improvement upon the ground of advantage that it will be to us to have so large an amount of government mon ey expended here. The appropriation would seem to be the main consideration with many. The San Francisco pres;>, with a keen appreciation of what it evi dently considers our especial ambition, treats the subject from the same point of view. The "Monarch of the Dallies," with its usual magnanimity, insists that we are entitled, not t.o a harbor, but to the $3,000,000, and it keeps on telling u« what a great outrage it is for Mr. Alger or Mr. Huntington to obstruct Its dis bursement. The offense is not in depriv ing us of a harbor, but in withholding the money. Without intending to be offensive, I must say that this is a very narrow view to take of the harbor question. The gov ernment never has proposed to make a harbor here or elsewhere for the sake of expending the public money; but al ways for the promotion of commerce. Nor does the government consider the benefit that will flow to any railroad, or any private party from the construction of a harbor. Its sole aim in such works is to facilitate and encourage foreign commerce. This commercial idea has been almost entirely Ignored by the San Pedro advo cate*; tt has hardly been alluded to by them, and why should It be? Not one of them, from Richard Kerens down, 1* known to own a vessel, great or small, nor 1* likely to. It 1* not the safety of ships they are after, but the protection of operation* wholly on land, whloh op erations may be in need of the expendi ture of government money at San Pedro. At all events, their ships are not in dan ger. I refer, of course, to the leading partisans of the San Pedro movement, and not to those who have been misled by clamor, by calumny, by denuncia tion and by caricaturing, all of which have been most liberally Indulged In by the more active spirits; a mode of con tention that always indicate* weakness of argument; it finds no warrant in the public welfare and but a miserable ex cuse In private Interests. The expenditure of three millions of dollars, and prospectively of a much larger sum, at San Pedro within the next few years, would undoubtedly Inure to the temporary advantage of Los Ange les, but much more and permanently to the advantage of San Pedro, which 11 would certainly tend to build up. But the construction of a harbor at Santa Monica, so near and so directly in lme with Los Angeles, would Inevitably make this city the commercial empo rium of the Pacific coast for the Oriental and transcontinental traffic. It would advantage Los Angeles to the extent, not of two or three millionp, but of hun dreds of millions; not for three or four years only, but for centuries. Instead of building up a rival seaport town to draw off our population and wealth, It would extend our borders to the ocean shore ar.d Increase our population by hundreds of thousands After careful consideration, I unhesitatingly say that Los Angeles could well afford to con struct the breakwater at Santa Monica at her own expense rather than to lose the advantages to result therefrom. The principal attack of the cohorts of San Pedro ha? been upon Mr. CP. Hunt ington. He has been assailed on this harbor business time and again, in the most violent manner; not merely be cause of his Interests at Santa Monica (for his interests are much larger at San Pedro), but became of his supposed partiality for the former as the more suitable place. I am not Mr. Hunting ton's advocate, nor his defender, but the solemn truth Is that he is pre-eminently above all others in a situation to. sub serve the Interests of Los Angeles In ref erence to the overland and Oriental traffic. He happens to be far better equipped for that than any other man or company, domestic or foreign, and, is ready, as we all understand, to put his broad financial shoulders to the wheel As much cannot be said of any other person, or association of persons, and certainly not of any of the present ad vocates of San Pedro. Mr. Huntington owns or controls extensive lines of steamships on both oceans. In the Chesapeake he has, It is conceded, the largert and best appointed shipyard in the world. He lacks not ocean piers for the convenient transaction of the larg est kind of ocean commerce, and, above all, he has by far the shortest and best lir.e of overland railroad in this country. This line of railroad comes directly to Los Angeles and would make Los An geles its abiding terminus if not repelled by the stupidity, or worse than stupid ity of her people who favor a harbor site for the Oriental trade which would be of scarcely more advantage to her than If located at San Diego or Guaymas. That trade, if striking this coast at San Pedro, would, with absolute certainty, reach Its eastern destination by short est route, leaving the ambitious city of Los Angeles to one side by a distance of twenty-five miles. Should Los Angeles find at last, perhaps when Air. Hunting ton shall have left the stage of action, that in fighting him she had merely de feated herself, it will not be a pleasant reflection. it if believed that Mr. Huntington, in his plans- for the promotion of the Ori ental traffic by way of Port Los Angeles, has the approval of many leading mem bers of both houses of congress, by whom he Is well known to be the fore most business man in America, and as Riving employment, even in these hard time?, to eighty odd thousand men, all of whom are well and promptly paid. The capital he controls is kept in active operation for the benefit of "Ms fellow men. Mr. Huntington may be rich, but no one will accuse him of being miserly. If he is rich In worldly goods he Is also rich in resources, and so much richer in this regard, it may be, than Los Angeles, that she can ill afford to reject his prof fered benefits. The pretense that the Southern Pa cific company could exercise a monopoly over any harbor constructed by the gov ernment would be extremely preposter ous, even if the act of congress did not provide, as it actually does, for the use and enjoyment by any other company, of the Southern Pacific wharf at Pert Los Angeles, and of its approaches, on equal terms with the builders, in case the breakwater should be so located as to protect it. The pretense of a monop oly by Mr. Huntington or his company at Santa Monica is too shallow for seri ous thought. No one who has looked Into the subject gives that charge the least credit. The practical view of thi9 subject is the sensible one. It Is more profitable to follow reason than prejudice, and in a business matter safer to be guided by facts than fancy. I have no knowledge more than any other person of Mr.Hunt ington's purposes, but I would not ex pect him, after being smitten on the one cheek to turn the other also. Los An geles needs friends —friends that will help her in this, the beginning of her promising career. She wants no more enemies; she has too many of them al ready, open and covert. It would be folly to add to the number, when, in or der to do so, she would be illustrating the homely saying of cuttingoff her nose to spite her face. C. COLE. The Clerk Was Bight To the Editor of the Los Angeles Her ald—Will you allow me to state, in your type, as a matter of some interest to the public, as well as to myself, that the question which arose at the council meeting on Monday, as to the filing of papers on Saturday afternoon, was simply as to the right and duty of the city clerk to accept and file them after t oelock on that day. The council has directed him to close his office at that hour on Saturdays, and it was claimed that he could not, at any later hour, file an appeal with legal effect and go on to advertise it and present it to the coun cil. Lawyers and common-sense citi zens will agree that the clerk was right in the course which he took, and that I was right in offering him the paper, and that the president of the council sus tained the credit of that body, when-Tie shut down on the charges which a mem ber attempted to make.
