THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER : HONOLULU, APRIL 22, 1S93.
7 5 THE PACIFIC Commercial Advertiser. W. N. ARMSTRONG - EDITOR. FRIDAY : APRIL 22. THE CHAS. L- CARTER MEMO RIAL. The proper location of the Charles Jj. Carter memorial fountain is not easy ro determine. It is largely a question of taste. The committee in charge of it are subject to only the very mildest criticism for selecting a location on Union Square. The place, like all oth er places where business is transacted is not in harmony with the idea of ret and tranquility which befits a mem orial. The suggestion of the Bulletin is an excellent one, that .the memorial be placed in Kapiolani park. An excellent spot is at the junction of the Waikiki road and the mauka road just beyond the bridge or viaduct. There is abun dance of ground there. The spot may be ornamented with trees, and partially surrounded with flowers. It is within a short distance of the sea. The play of the fountain would be seen from the approach over the bridge. Placed on this spot, the artistic effect of the memorial will be much greater than it can be in a crowded place, close to buildings. In making this suggestion we have the cordial assent of several of those who, from their close relation ship to the late Charles L. Carter, would naturally be consulted in the matter. The Japanese have given the Occi dental races some excellent ideas in the use of natural scenery and situa tion in selecting memorial sites. The idea of quiet and rest predominates. CUBAN INDEPENDENCE WHAT NEXT? President McKinley and his advisers have gone into this Cuban affair much more thoroughly than the newspapers, because the responsibility is largely upon them of making war, or keeping ihe peace. With Cuban independence what comes next? The President must 'take this question in. He cannot make it a separate matter to be dealt with after wards. He must have a plan about it definite and sufficient. The island of Cuba has about the same area as the State of Kentucky,.a larger area than Maine, or Indiana, and a little less area than the State of New York. This is a population of over 1,500,000. This is a population larger than that of any one of 33 Ameri can States and territories, and less than that of only 12 States. The ser iousness of the question becomes evi dent at once. The President is confronted with sev eral propositions. 1. Cuba as an independent State is incapable of self-government, owing to the large numbers of negroes and ignorant people of mixed blood. The people are in the average, it is said, less capable of self-government than the people of the South American re publics. Independence therefore, means revolutions, anarchy and continued dis turbance, directly under the eyes of the American people. This will be an intol erable condition of things and it is foreseen. 2. If the United States force Cuban independence, they cannot stop at that point. They must in the interests of commerce and humanity undertake to control" Cuba in some way. 3. The American theory cf territory is, that whenever -the number of the population of a territory reaches 100, 000, it shall become a self-governing State. This theory has been acted upon, from the adoption of the Constitution. 4. The government of a territory like Cuba, with a population larger than that of anyone of 33 States, de mands an entirely new departure from the accepted theory of democratic gov ernment. A departure of this kind, re garding the little Isla-nd of Hawaii, is one of the causes which prevent an nexation. Forcible intervention by the United States precipitates a most serious mat ter before President McKinley. The disposition of Congress is to intervene first and fix things up afterwards. The President's disposition is to move very cautiously in view of the perplexing questions involved and he keeps the future before him. Independent Cuba will be a dreadful white elephant on the hands of Con gress, just as the Southern States were many elephants on its hands at the close of the war. The Republican party now sees its many blunders in dealing with the negijo question. Wiser now than it was then, it sees, or Presi dent McKinley sees, a problem in Cuba in every way more perplexing than the negro question of the reconstructed States. The President, with the fear of an immense white elephant being driven into his door yard, and left there, is naturally conservative. A DISAGREEABLE OPINION. The Washington Post, always a firm friend of annexation, and always well informed in political affairs has an editorial which again affirms the need of annexation. It says: "But it is clear to us that the so called reciprocity treaty between Ha waii and the United States is an expen sive and indefensible blunder. There is no element of reciprocity in it. We admit Hawaiian sugar to our ports free cf duty, thereby presenting foreign su gar producers with several millions of dollars annually, and we receive in re turn what? The friends of the treaty point to the fact that our merchants practically control the trade of Hawaii, and that is, perhaps, approximately true. But two very important queries present themselves in this connection "First To what extent does the treaty influence our commercial rela tions with the Islands, and "Secondly Even supposing the case to be one of cause and effect, is the trade of sufficient importance to war rant us in giving away five or six mil lions annually to alien sugar planters and to that extent discouraging and burdening our domestic industries? "For our part, we believe that such trade as we have with Hawaii comes to us legitimately and without the slight est reference to the free admission of her sugar. We believe, too, that the so- called reciprocity treaty operates at every point to our disadvantage. It is a treaty which we should not tolerate for one instant with a foreign nation, since aliens receive all the benefits and we bear all the burdens. Our own pro ducers of sugar are subjected to the competition of foreign producers, who operate under incalculably superior conditions. Our free and intelligent labor is antagonized by the semi-barbarous labor of Asia. American indus tries are checked in their development so that foreign industries may thrive. Nothing more improvident, less pa triotic, more unstatesmanlike, could be imagined. If we decide to adopt Ha waii, to take it into the American Union, and to throw open to our own citizens all the splendid opportunities and possibilities it presents, that is one thing. But to continue a treaty which gives to a foreign nation and an alien people such conspicuous advantages at our expense, is quite a different one. For that arrangement there is no con ceivable excuse." The above extract shows the drift of feeling in the States. As we have rati fied the treaty of annexation, there is perhaps nothing more for us to do, but onnosed to the UlUkJV 1 w v . - treaty may as well understand what lies in the future. The London Economist gives a dfc tailed statement of the Cuban aeot, guaranteed by Spain, a!nd sums it as follows: "The three Cuban loans, therefore, amounting in capital to 89,- 936,000, requiring 3,508,740 in gold for the coupons and sinking funds of the 18SG and 1890 issues, and 5,260,000 in pesetas for the coupons and sinking fnnrl of the 5 ner cent, bonds of 1896- 7-8 guaranteed by the revenue of Span ish customs. These three loans, how- oror ir Tint rpnrpsent the whole V, J v- f V- vw X amount of the liabilities of the Cuban Treasury, as it has been stated in the Madrid Ministerial press that the Cu ban Treasury was in debt on January 1, 189S, to the extent of 14,000,000, for several months' arrears due to the army, navy, civil servants, pensioners, and army contractors of the colony."

The doctors pronounced my trouble dyspepsia, but they could not do anything for me, and advised a change of location. At the age of 55 a tumor formed on my spine, which Was Very Painful but did net rise or discharge. The doctor thought best to cut it out, but I objected. It finally broke and discharged a great deal. The doctors said they could do nothing for it. Then the tumor began to rise inwardly and discharge. I read much about cures by Hood's Sarsaparilla and thought I would try it. Before I had finished taking one bottle I was much relieved. I continued the use of Hood's Sarsaparilla, and after taking 12 bottles I was entirely cured. I am now well, have a good appetite and feel that I owe my life to Hood's Sarsaparilla." W. D. Fork. ocTs Sarsa parilla Is the best in fact the One True Blood Purifier.
