HAWAII AND CUBA.
promises are worthless. She made them
to General Grant and broke them. The
guns of the American fleet will be
shotted until this matter is settled
forever.
KNU LAND AND AMERICA.
Colonel Spalding told Senator Mor
gan's committee in 1801, that he con
sidered the sugar resources of Cuba
letter than those of Hawaii, that al
though the making of sugar on these
Islands "was developed to a higher
scientific degree than any other sugar
country known," he could produce su
gar at $10 per ton less in Cuba than in
Hawaii. Ho said further that he did
not believe the Islands had any "ad
vantages" excepting only climate.
Assuming that Colonel Spalding
stated the truth, there is now a strong
er reason than has herefcre existed for
the Legislature, the Government and
the planters to shake off their lethargy
over the industrial condition of the
Islands, for the reason that Cuba will,
an all probability, soon become in some
way so connected with the United
States, that her sugar production will
seriously interfere with the Hawaiian
product in the American markets. The
United States, if they dominate Cuba,
will within a short period adjust the
affairs of that island, because it lies
close to the great money centers, and
close to the thickly populated portion
of American territory. It is not dis
tant like Alaska. It can be reached in
a few hours from Boston, New York
and Washington.
If political affairs are adjusted in
the island, with the American Con
press dominating over it, there will be
a boom of the most feverish character
in real estate, and property of that
island.
Today, the United States does not
possessan acre of strictly tropical land,
and if it possesses Cuba, the resources
of the island will be rapidly developed.
Whether the sugar beet industry will
kill the sugar cane industry, as it is
confidently claimed, is yet a question.
The tropics are, and will be, depen
dent on ignorant .labor for many years
to come. Ignorant labor means, as the
-world is now finding out, the most ex
pensive labor. Agriculture and horti
culture prosper best under the fertili
zation of brains, even down to the man
wtio simply handles a hoe.
Under these circumstances, it is of
the utmost importance that we bal
ance our industries as soon as possible.
Cuba'n sugar on the one side, and the
sugar beet on the other puts us be
tween the devil and deep sea.
The case needs heroic treatment. The
present attitude of this community is
that of the toper who was told that he
must submit to heroic treatment, if he
would be cured. "Doctor," he replied,
"give me some more whiskey, and let
me 'take my chances." The wise men
in the community are doing much
"thinking." Perhaps they are, but
from appearances, they cry for more
sugar, more Japanese, and take their
cha'nees.
The Spectator, one of the conserva
tive literary journals of England,
speaking of President McKinley and
the American Nation, says: "They
have behaved with a really wonderful
dignity. There has been no blustering
or bullying by the Executive, and as
the gravity of the siruation has in
creased so has the gravity and high
mindedness of the Administration. The
Anglo-Saxda race may well be proud
of its bigger half."
Not since 18G0, has a conservative
English journal expressed itself in this
generous way. After the visit of the
Prmco of Wales in the United States,
and the enthusiasm of his reception,
the English papers bubbled over with
the brotherhood feeling. It was said
that the political millenium had come,
when the two great branches of the
Anglo-Saxon race had agreed to keep
sten together i'n the advance of civili
zation. John Bull and Uncle Sam fell
on each other's necks and wept for
ioy, and put their arms around each
other in a love feast. It was the first
outburst of sentimentalism since the
war of 1812. Both raised their hands
to Heaven and at the .suggestion of any
future differences, shouted: "Never,
npver. toever!"
A few months after this, the Civil
war in America began. The love feast
pmiwl. The dishes were broken. The
spread was torn from the table, and the
table itself was upset. Tlie two old
pntlPmen shook .their fists at each
other. Uncle Sam said that John Bull
wished to break up the Union. John
Bull retorted that Uncle Sam wanted to
subiugate the South. Christian men
interfered a'nd eaid that they were not
obeying the teachings of Christ. Both
cried out that allusions to Christ were
inoDnortune and unbusiness like. Then
came the Trent affair, and the indig
nant eld fellows refused to recognize
each other in the street. The political
mellenium baby died in its little cradle.
After 38 years passed in cold polite
ness, and mutual disgust at the hug
ging and kissing of 18G0, the- Spectator,
representing the best thought and cul
ture of England, repeats the language
of the love feast.
Next, we shall hear, in public, a repe
tition of the unconcealed thoughts of
British Statesmen. John Bull will say:
"Now Uncle Sam, why don't you take
Hawaii and done with.it? We don't
like your policy, like that of Russia
and France of keeping the trade of
your territories to yourself. But you
will come around all right in time.
Our Lord Palmerston said 45 years ago
that ehe belonged to you. Come Uncle,
shake up, take her and done with it."

Neighbors Could Not Bear to Look
Upon Her A Grand, Complete
Cure by Hood's Sarsapariila
After Others Failed.
"I was taken with neuralgia in my
head and eyes. Not long after this, a
scrofula sore appeared on my left cheek,
extending from my upper lip to my eye.
Other 6ores came on my neck and on my
right arm and one of my limbs. They
were very troublesome and painful and
goon became great running sores. My
face looked so bad that some of my
neighbors could not bear to look at me
and advised me to wear a bandage, but I
feared this would irritate the sore and
make it worse. So I
Could Not Hide the Sores.
.My niece, who was familiar with a case
similar to mine, which had been cured by
Hood's Sarsapariila, urged me to try it.
Finally I was persuaded to do so, and in
a short time I saw it was helping me.
The sores began to heal and the neu
ralgia in my head was better. In a few
months the sores on my arms and limbs
all healed: those on mv neck Gradually
disappeared and now they are all gone.
I have never had any symptom of scrofula
since. One large scar on my right arm is
all the sign that remains of my terrible
affliction. The neuralgia is also cured."

The voluntary suspension of hostili
ties in Cuba, by Spain, bas, in one as
pect of the case, the appearance of a
diplomatic trick, done in order to draw
President McKinley's fire. Spain may
reasdn in this way: "The President
nmnoses to intervene, because he says
-we carry on a crviel war. Very well,
let us stop fighting. What then can he
do? He can't intervene, if we don't
hurt anybody in Cuba. He will have
to tie up his fleets. If we stop fighting
President McKinley must compel the
Cuans to stop fighting. If they con
tinue, foe will have to help us, instead
of helping them."
The case has this aspect, but we be
lieve that it is not correct. The Presi
dent, if Congress leaves it to him to
manage ,the affair will say to Spain:
"You have stopped fighting. But I
must fix up this affair so that it is set
tled forever. I shall not tie up our
fleets until we have come to a final un
derstanding, so that you will never j
make further trouble in Cuba. I mean
(that she must be practically inde
pendent. Nothing short of this will do.
If you can get out of the scrape by let
ting her go, we may guarantee her debt
of $445,000,000. And that arrangement
is really more than you deserve."
While the papers are full of "news,"
not one of them, so far, can tellis just
what the European pressure on Spain
for a settlement is.
Spain really loses by the suspension
of hostilities. The American forces
are increasing every day. The Cuban
army has a breathing spell. The Span
ish expenses continue. While she may
be improving her armaments, she is
crippled for means, while the United
States have enormous sums to convert
into fighting material.
One thing we know, President -McKinley
will, under no circumstances,
accept a'ny promises of Spain regard
ing good government in Cuba. Her
