SPAIN BACKS DOWN.
The situation in Cuba has radically
changed within two weeks, Spain has
backed down, but she has not backed
out. She has suspended hostilities in
Cuba. She does now what she has
defiantly refused to do, for two years.
She does not ask the Cubans to sus
pend hostilities as well. They may do
as they please. She does not ask the
United States to intervene. She simply
stops firing, while she refuses to cori
cede the independence of Cuba.
Only .the strongest possible motive
could influence this sudden action. One
need not look far to find it. The de
claration of the suspension of hostili
ties is said by tho Spaniards to be at
the request of the Pope. But behind
the Pope are the Rothschilds and
bankers, and friendly sovereigns. The
Pope is named because he has influ
ence with the Spanish people. He is,
therefore, brought to the front. The
bankers tell Spain that war brings her
only and absolutely a loss of Cuba, and
the loss of security for the payment of
the $400,000,000 Cuban debt. If the
Spanish people make trouble, the Pope
and the Powers must take care of it.
This is a move, on behalf of Spain,
that prevents war at present, unless
Congress declares it. It looks also as
if it were the' preliminary move in the
act of finally parting with Cuba. How
that will be brought about is another
question. As Spain has backed down,
ahe may, for the same reason, back out.
The quiet, but compelling force which
makes her suspend hostilities, will
make her finally grant independence.
This move of Spain's, on the political
chess board, is a skilfull one, even if it
1s forced against her will.
panics who are practical reformers.
They give their employes good places,
remove all cause of apprehension, and
then say to them: "You cannot drink,
because as a purely business matter we
cannot trust you to take care of our in
terests." The Pennsylvania Railway
company employs about 30,000 men
These men are not only temperate, but
are teetotallers, under business engage
ments to be so. The cause of temper
ance is rapidly advancing, not on the
lines of morals or sentiment, but sim
ply as a business matter. In this is its
strength. The cause of intemperance
is due, in the largest measure to un
fortunate social and industrial condi
tions. Poverty, and sickness, and dis
couragement make the drunkards, as a
rule. The removal of these causes is
the best blue ribbon movement. Alter
conditions, so that men, women and
children are made "comfortable" and
the saloon goes. Until that is done, the
saloon will exist, and it will exist un
der God's Providence too.
THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
Blanch K. Bruce, once United States
Senator from Mississippi, and for some
years registrar of the treasury in
Washington, recently died in that city,
He was not a pure negro. Whatever
talent he derived from the white blood,
in him, it is certain that he took some
string and valuable points from his
negro ancestry. He called himself a
negro, and in his intercourse with the
whites, in public life, seemed to uncon
sciously recognize the superior race. It
is said, and we believe the story has
never been in print, that while Senator,
the wife of his old master came to the
Senate chamber, and told him of her
poverty and distress, and asked his aid
in netting some situation in one of the
departments. He at once called two
carriages. In one he placed his former
mistress, and he directed the driver to
take her to the treasury department.
He entered the other carriage and fol
lowered her. He would not disturb the
race prejudices of even his broken
down former owner, by offering to ride
in the same carriage with her. He se
cured a situation for her at once. He
even refused to sit in her presence,
while asking for the place.
IN CUBA
Difference Between Armistice and
"Suspension."
In speaking yesterday of the situa
tioa in Cuba or with relation to Cuba
and Spain, a member of the Hawaiian
Cabinet said:
"The dispatches and a good many of
the people both in this country and
abroad interchange quite erroneously
the terms 'armistice' and 'suspension
of hostilities.' The two differ vastly.
An armistice is a rest by agreement of
the two or more parties to a conflict.
No agreement has heen. entered into
between Spain and the Cubans and the
Cubans have declared they will listen
to no overtures from the mother coun
try. The dispatches say that Spain,
by the Queen Regent, and upon the
advice of the Pope, has proclaimed a
'suspension of hostilities.' If this is
correct it seems more than likely that
the Cuban forces are still actively in
the field and if that is the case the
Spanish forces are naturally at least
on the defensive. It is not at all un
safe to assume, if our advices are to be
depended upon, that war is proceeding
as usual in Cuba. If that is the case,
additional strength and significance
are given to the message of President
McKi'nley to Congress."
Facts About Health j gUCE

Some of the Conditions Necessary j
to Perfect Health. !
The importance of maintaining good
health is easily understood, and it is really
a simple matter if we take a correct view
of the conditions required. In perfect
health the stomach promptly digests food,
and thus prepares nourishment. The
blood is employed to carry this nourish
ment to the organs, nerves, muscles and
tissues which need it. The first great
essential for good health, therefore, is
pure, Tich blood. Now it is certainly a
fact that no medicine has such

as Hood's Sarsaparilla. It is literally true
that there are hundreds of people alive
and well today who would have been in
their graves had they 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. Johnson, 3 South

AND
The President does not favor the
acknowledgment of the independence
of Cuba. He says it will do no good,
and embarrass the United States. If
independence is acknowledged, he must
recognize the Cuban Government, and
if he does he says there is no telling
-what that Government may do.
Therefore he simply asks Congress to
authorize him to intervene, with power
to use the navy and army, and stop .the
war in Cuba. If Spain resists, he will
fight her. His first point is to stop the
war, prevent further cruelties and feed
the suffering. He is justified in doing
thte cn ample ground. If he stops the
war, then he demands .that Spain shall
make such terms with Cuba, as will
prevent any further trouble. He "sits
down" on both sides until terms are
made, which he can accept. And he
will accept nothing but the final inde
pendence of Cuba. He does not say so,
but it is quite clear that he sees no
other solution of the difficulty.
Congress, however, takes a diffierent
view of the case, so far. It desires an
acknowledgment of independence first,
. and an immediate intervention to es
tablish it. The people are aroused, and
are impatient. They want something
to be done. Congress reflects this sen
timent. But the indications, are, so far as the
latest dispatches throw any light on
the subject, that the Presidents policy
will prevail, because it the moderate
policy. Naturally the jingoes are mad
with the President, because he does not
"t hirst for gore." Congress may over
ride hira, but the chances are that his
policy of stopping the war in Cuba at
once and making the independence of
Cuba a secondary matter at present,
will prevail. Congress will see that it
is another and better way to settle the
difficulty.
"Unless Congress over-rides the Presi
dent's policy, the acute stage cf the
difficulty is now past, and the prob
abilities of war rapidly decrease. Spain
"has backed down, and that is signifi
cant. The bankers of Europe do not
propose to let Spain foolishly destroy
the value of $400,000,000 of Cuban
ibonds which they hold. That means
war at the expense of the bond holders.
They evidently do 'not believe there is
much fun in it.
RAILWAYS AND TEMPERANCE.
Bounty on Mongoose.
By the Legislature of 1892, there was
passed an act setting aside the sum of
$1,000 to be exepended in the direction
of exterminating mongoose on the Isl
and of Oahu. It was provided that a
bounty of not more than 25 cents
should be paid for each mongoose kill
ed and the expenditure of the fund
should be under the supervision of the
Minister of the Interior, that official to
fix all necessary regulations. The queer
part of the whole agitation and trans
action is that while the act reserving
the $1,000 for mongoose destruction on
this Island was readily passed, there
was failure to include the money item
in the appropriation bill. It has been
suggested that the present assembly
might, if the members ithought it ad
visable, set the mo'ngoose killing act
into operation by reviving it to the ex
tent of providing money.

One of the strongest, if not the
strongest forces, in aid of the temper
ance cause is the healthy industrial
development. The temperance cranks
have failed to see that the chief cause
of intemperance is, aside from inheri
ted disease, the unfavorable social and
industrial conditions. Put a man into
a place infested with cholera germs,
and he is liable to take cholera. Put a
man into social or industrial conditions
where Jhis mind is worried, his hope of
betterment destroyed, his ambition
taken out of him by low or uncertain
wa-ges, and you have at once the home
of the alcohol bacilli.
