THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, APRIL IS, 1S0S.
1 1 J ,4 ' t 3, 3. ;-3- 31 I ii THE PACIFIC Commercial Advertiser, W. N. ARMSTRONG EDITOR. MONDAY APRIL IS. C UBA AND THK AMERICAN KLKC-TIONS President McKinley is confrontel with, among other troubles, the situa tion of the Republican party. The hatred of Spain, and the desire to liber ate Cuba is so intense, among the mas ses of people, that the Fall elections may turn on the Cuban question. Al though there is a large and strong peace party, in the country, it is not a peace at any price party, and cannot hold its own against the masses, -whose blood is up. It is evident that the President does not intend to make any error. His purpose is a fixed one, the freedom of Cuba. But he knows that many forces are at work in Europe, that are slowly bringing the Spanish Government to an acceptance of the in dependence of Cuba, if it desires to pre serve the Philippines, the remaining islands of the West Indies, and, more than all, get some guarantee of the Cuban debt of $400,000,000. Should Spain, at the last moment, concede it, even after intervention is declared, it will be a magnificent triumph of the President's policy. War may be said to be inevitable, but even after inter vention is declared, it may be stayed. This is possible, but rather improbable. The Republican politicians fear the de feat of the party in November, if the President makes an error. So does the President fear it. JOURNALISTIC PHOTOGRAPHY. "If a rumor is on the street it is jus tifiable and proper to give that rumor to its readers. If people choose to think that rumor is fact, it is their own fault, and not the fault of those who supply the news." The Star. This statement of the ethics of jour nalism regarding the flag hoax by an eminent professor of the Whang Doodle University, has the merit of simplicity and duplicity. At the next Commence ment of the college, the professor should undoubtedly deliver an impres sive baccalaureate sermon to the grad uating class. Can he possibly use any other words than these? "I impress upon your minds that iournalism has the noblest aims. It involves the hightest art. I have al ready shown to you how the incident of an inquiry in a store for an Ameri can flag, by a naval officer may natur ally, logically, and aesthetically be de veloped into a serious statement that the American naval forces were about to raise that flag on these Islands, and complicate the neutrality of the Re public. What then is true journalism? It is the process of developing upon the negative of the imagination the faint est outline of a rumor. I sit alone in the solitude of my mental darkness, holding the negative plate upon which lies the suggestion of a rumor. I rub it vigorously with the chloride or sen sationalism. I bring it to the light. A;h! gentlemen you see upon it a bold, clear statement reliable as history itself. "I illustrate again. I am -standing in a well conducted tailoring establish ment. Some one says, 'the old man has gone up.' This is the first impres sion of a rumor on the negative of my imagination. I hasten at once to my studio. What 'old man?' and how 'gone up?' Where to? I think. The genius of true journalism hovers over me. The negative developes, I bring it to the light. It shows a clear well defined form. I immediately send it to the press. It is this: "President Dole suddenly died this morning of cerebro spinal meningitis. He was conversing with Representa tive Loebenstein on the subject of his own intolerable wickedness as Presi dent. He suddenly sank down. As we go to press, he is with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. A good man has left us. "You see at once, young gentlemen, how the negative faithfully developes. The rumor about the 'old man' natur ally refers to Mr. Dole, because it does not specially refer to any one else. This la conclusive. Next, 'he has gone up' refers not to bankruptcy, or earthly misfortune, but to an expansion to wards the skies. You now see the sub lime evolution of journalism from the embryo to the perfect monkey I mean man. " Now if while the paper containing this sad intelligence is hawked about the street, Mr. Dole appears on the scene, and even purchases a copy of the paper containing his own obituary, will any one dare to say that journalism is responsible for this inopportune pres ence? No! It is the faulth of the peo ple who choose to believe the state ment I made. It is the duty of the public to discover the truth. Mine, and a higher duty is to sit in mental dark ness and develop negatives. "I deal only in high art. Give me the impression only of the word 'snort' on ray imaginative negative, and I will develop it into a statement that the Emperor of China has abdicated, and the Queen of Great Britain has ascend ed the Chinese throne. Gentlemen, we are only at the morning Star of journ alism. Gentlemen, my mission to you is ended, go all of you and do likewise." Even the Nation, N. Y., forgets for a moment its naughty remarks about the ."tyrants and pirates" who now domin ate these Islands, and shows a warm side towards benevolent despotism, in the following statement: "There is not a somnolent line in Mr. Charles F. Lummis's 'The Awak ening of a Nation: Mexico of Today.' "Mr. Lummis ihas made it his task, in this volume, to show how in Mexi co the past score of years has projected a vast new structure against the his toric background. His record is a vivid one of municipal adornment and sani tation, of educational and industrial development, of political solidification in a period of unprecedented peace. When one reads of a moral quickening rivalling the material, and is given to understand that the corrupt officials of the recent past have disappeared ut terly, one remembers his Nemo re pente, and remains in a scepticism which may not be healthy, but is in evitable. Certainly if Diaz has been so astonishing a moral regenerator of Mexico, as well as her pacificator, the cry for such a benevolent tyranny as his will become exceeding great and bitter in other lands." Perhaps the Council of State may be able to devise a method, by which, without violating the Constitution, a contract may be made with some bene volent despot to govern these Islands for ten years, and who will introduce a variety of wholesome industrial food, and balance up our industries, without injuring, and in fact putting the sugar -industry on a better basis; one who organizes, for a while, a disciplined force, instead of permitting the politi cal militia to march in confusion,, get lost in the woods, and fire into each other. Death of John Ilae. John Ilae, aged 47, died at his home in Aala at about 7:30 o'clock Saturday night, the immediate cause being the bursting of a blood vessel in his head. The funeral will take place from the late residence in Aala at 3 p. m. today. Deceased went out into his yard on Monday to pick up the rubbish that lay about and while in the act, was sud denly prostrated. He lay for a long time unconscious, before being found. He was put under treatment but noth ing could be done for him. Y. E C. A. ENTERTAINMENT ON ACCOUNT OF OTHER ENTER tainments to be iheld on Tuesday even ing, the Anniversary Entertainment of the Y. M.

Those who have taken Hood's Sarsapa rilla are the ones who are competent to speak of its merits. - Thousands of these people say Hood's Sarsaparilla has cured them. ' The testimonials of cures by Hood's constitute a vast mass of testimony which proves the power of this medicine to cure a great variety of diseases. '. These cures often seem marvelous, yet they are perfectly natural and are easily explained. They are the necessary result of purifying and enriching the blood. Pure blood is the foundation of health. Hood's Sarsaparilla is the One True Blood Purifier and cures disease by purifying and enriching the blood. It possesses peculiar curative power, that is, it cures when other medicines cannot cure, because it is peculiar in com bination, proportion and process. That is all there is to be explained about the cures by Hood's Sarsaparilla. If you have faithfully tried Hood's Sar eaparilla you know how it is yourself; if you have not tried it, why not do so today? " I have been troubled with scrofula all my life, and it affected my eyes so that I was obliged to remain in a dark room. I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla.
