THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: TIOXOLULU, APRIL
W. N. ARMSTRONG EDITOR
The grounds upon which a nation in
tervcncs rorciuiy m tne airair.s oi an
other nation, are the protection of the
intervening nation from imminent dan
ger; the need of protecting the state
interfered with from imminent dan
ger; the protection of treaty rights; the
request of another nation for interven
tion; the preservation of the balance of
power; interference to suppress revolu
tion, and finally the interests of
Upon this ground of humanity main
ly, it is believed that President Mc
Kinley will recommend to Congress an
active interference in Cuban matters,
if lie does make any positive recom
mendations. The writers on International Law do
not regard with much favor interfer
ence on the ground of humanity, as it
opens the door to much abuse. During
the American, civil war, upon, very ex
aggerated reports being received in
England from the 'battlefields of the
Federals and Confederates, suggestions
were made in Parliament to the Gov
ernment that it inerfere in the inter
ests of humanity. It was for a time,
generally believed in Great Britain that
the Federal soldiers were guilty of the
most abominable atrocities.
In 1827 Great Britain, France and
Russia interfered on. behalf of the
Greeks, who were being cruelly exter
minated bv the Turks. Even the Unit
ed States, tinder the eloquence o
Henry Clay in the American Senate
were disposed to join in the inter
The Great Powers intervened again
in 18G0, and stopped the prosecutions
and massacre of Christians in the dis
trict of Mount Lebanon.
All of these interventions though
not strictly legal, 'had a moral justi
fication, and the public opinion of the
-world approved of them.
In 18C1 England and Spain undertook
to intervene in the affairs of Mexico,
on the ground that Mexico refused to
pay British and Spanish creditors. But
when it was apparent that Napoleon
TTT. was using their intervention to
strengthen the cause of Imperialism,
they withdrew their forces, and this,
with the declaration of the United
States, that the Monroe doctrine must
tie respected by the French, caused the
downfall and death of Maximillian.
The application of the doctrine of in
tprvontlnn bv the United States in
Cuban affairs, is not free from em
barrassment, because of the perma
nent political interest of the American
people in Cuba. Any intervention,
even on the ground of humanity has
been open to the suspicion of being a
mere pretext to gain political advan
tages. For this reason, President Mc
Kinley has taken a course wthich has
disarmed such suspicions among the
European Powers. In doing so, he has
finally obtained their respect, and even
Great Britain openly approves of it
Germany. Russia and France respect
his course. Indeed, they clearly see
ihat events during the last 50 years
have decided the fate of Cuba. As one
of the writers on International Law
says: "When states do intervene, they
should make it clear to all concerned
that their voice must Ibe attended to
and their wishes carried out."
He made his report and recommended
a novel method of propagating oysters.
It was at once put in operation. The
fishermen waited years for results. The
benevolent despot extended the plan to
all of the oyster beds. In about 20 years
the industry was restored and the sup
ply is now equal to th increasing de
mands of the markets. Benevolent des
pots have their high uses.
Perhaps it is our destiny to drift
along like the people of the British
West Indies, and if an industrial cala
mity hurts us, we can humbly say with
the Turk who is a fatalist, "Kismet."
It is our fate.
Even under democratic institutions,
the value of despotism in organization
is common, if not absolutely necessary,
in the highly successful private enter
prises. The men who manage great
railway corporations, great insurance
companies, great banks, great indus-
rial enterprises are and must be des
pots. In a multitude of ignorant coun
sellors there is always foolishness. One
well equipped man, with the gift of
organization, and with executive pow
er is worth a hundred men, who do not
have these gifts.
The history of industrial develop
ment is the history of undertakings of
men, who could not agree in pursuing
measur3s, and ruined their enterprises,
only to be followed by some one man
who acted on his own judgment with
celerity and force, and commanded success.
On our industrial side, the presence
of a benevolent despot, of the rignt
dnd, would make some wholesome re
adjustments of our labor relations, to
the benefit of all.
PERSONAL AND PECULIAR.:
In reading the statement about the
progress the people of Mexico are mak
ing in political and industrial develop
ment, under the administration of
President Diaz, we are tempted to ut
ter the treasonable opinion that a bene
volent horticultural despot of the same
"kind in needed .here. Diaz has clear
ideas about what the Mexicans need.
He knows that if left to themselves
they will make slow progress. He,
therefore, under a Republican form of
pnvprnraent. exercises, nearly if not
entirely, an absolute despotism.
When a community is drifting about
and has lost its bearings on labor and
industrial problems a benevolent des
pot may be Providential. It was this
benevolent despotism of Napoleon I.
that created the great sugar beet in
dustry of France. He knew that his
Parliament was not equal to the task
of managing it. So he took it into his
Xapoleno III. finding in 1SG1, that the
oyster industry of France was in dan
ger of destruction from the want of in
telligent management on the part of
the oystermen, undeitook to enforce
some benevolent despotism. The oys
ter supply of the bay of Marennes de
creased from 80,000,000 per year to 3,
000,000. The fishermen were in dis
pair. The Emperor sent a scientist to
the United States, who carefully stu
died the oyster beds of that country.
The death of Arthur Orton in Lon
don, closes oneof the most remarkable
events in legal history. He claimed to
be the real Lord Tichborne, who had
disappeared, and on the trial of his
claim to the Tichborne estate, in 1871,
he gave a voluminous mass of testi
mony to support his claim. Years after
his defeat, and his conviction for per
jury, 'he confessed his fraudulent pre
tenses. The curiaus featureof the case
was, that although without a particle
of truth on his side, he managed to
manufacture evidence, which "kept the
attention of the Court and jury for
many weeks. An, eminent lawyer
prosecuted his case, and was ruined by
it. He formed a syndicate upon his
claim, and thousands of people took
shares in it to the extent of over $150,-
000. The attention of all England was
attached to it. It shows the prejudices
of men .that they were divided in opin
ion upon it. The aristocrats believed
that he was an imposter, while the
common people believed that he was
prevented from obtainig his just dues
Ex-Queen Liliuokalani is another
celebrity who has been crowded off
ihe -legitimate stage of international
affairs into political vaudeville. Wash
emperor imam or Germany will
start on his trip to the Holy Land
about April loth. He will sail from
Hamburg in his yacht, accompanied by
his two eldest sons, and will return
about June 1st, when he will probably
visit in Constantinople the Saltan.
Later he will meet he King cf Italy in
Facts About Health
It is Easy to Keep Well If We
It is stated that there are three times
as many teachers employed in the Sun
day schools in Massachusetts as are
employed in the public schools in that
State, and the Congregationalist say-
that Sunday School teaching has
reached a stage of development when
teachers, in addition to piety, must
have mental equipment.
Windsor bridge across the Thames
has lately been freed from its 2-penny
toll through the greed of the corpora
tion. This had an undoubted right to
collect tolls from prescription as they
had been taken since the reign of
tienry vi. it asKeu parliament in
1734, and again in 1819, for power to
charge additional tolls, and obtained
it for a limited number of years. The
privilege expired about 10 years ago,
but the corporation continued to collect
the money till a litigous Briton refus
ed to pay, thus bringing the matter to
the attention of the courts.
Some of the Conditions Ncctt:rrv
to Perfect Health.
The importance of maintaining good
health is easily understood, and it isref.IIy i
a simple matter if we take a correct view !
of the conditions required. In perfect !
health the stomach promptly digests food, !
and thus prepare3 nourishment. The i
biood is employed to carry this nourish- I
ment to the organs, nerves, muscles and 1
tissues which need it. The first great :
essential for good health, therefore, is
pure, rich blood. Now it is certainly a ;
fact that no medicine has such !
A Record of Cures
as Hood's Sarsaparilla. It is literally true
that there are hundreds of people" alive i
and well today who would have been in I
meir graves naa tney not taken Hood's
Sarsaparilla. It is depended upon as a
family medicine and general regulator of
the system by tens of thousands of people.
This is because Hood's Sarsaparilla makes
the blood pure. This is the secret of its
great success. Keep your system in good
health by keeping your blood pure with
Hood's Sarsaparilla, which absolutely
cures when other medicines fail.
" I had pimples on my face and a large
boil on one hand. I began taking Hood's
Sarsaparilla and after using three bottles
I was cured." J. W. Jonxsox, 3 South
