THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, APRIL 20, 1S98. THE PACIFIC Commercial Advertiser. W. N. ARMSTRONG EDITOR. FRIDAY :::::: APRIL 29. THE JOINT RESOLUTION. The difference between the American Senate and House regarding the Cuban matter was on the point or recognizing Ihe present alleged Republic of Cuba. The President desired to be relieved of any complications which would arise of a recognition of the Republic of Cuba. His reasons were, that if the United States recognizing that Govern ment, he, the President, would have to carry on war or intervention in Cuba subject to the consent of that Govern ment. This might seriously embarrass him. He could not act 'freely and inde pently in moving armies, or attacking cities on Cuban soils, as he would be subject to the dictation of that Govern ment, when within its jurisdiction. That Government is not well settled. The extremists in Congress replied to the President: "Niever mind the Cubam Government; do as you please; turn it down, if it happens to put on airs." But the extremists did not see, or in their excitement refused to see, that the President would inevitably make history, and might commit the "United States to a course which in the end, would be a boomerang. The United States followed a short sighted policy in refusing to abolish privateering some years ago. Now Spain may cause great loss to Amer ican property by commissioning pri vateers, which are inexpensive affair?, if managed under steam and sail. The President hesitates to make too many precedents. The resolutions adopted by Congress avoid any recognition of the indefinite government- of Cuba, which is largely "in the saddle." Profound as 'American sympathy is for the suffering Cubans, the hard-headed men who must man age intervention and carry on war have not an abiding faith in the intelligence and honesty of the Cuban patriots. Aside from this view of the case, the situation of the Cuban debt, guaran teed by Spain may be a serious matter to the United Staies, should the United States intervene and free Cuba, the liability of the United States to pay that debt of $500,000,000 may be raised, and unless the interference is very guarded, a court of arbitration might put .the United States im a very akward position. The President seems to have prevail ed in his policy, and acted promptly. of Spanish vessels. At the same time it will be one of the sad incidents of war that many of the vessels wilL be laid up, and many men thrown out of work. -J The enthusiasm over General Pitz hugh Lee, when he entered the State Department at Washington, on his re turn from Cuba, was unusual. It must have been deeply gratifying to him to have met such honor and respect in the very headquarters of the Government that 33 years ago had marked him as a rebel, confiscated his property, and de nied mm citizenship. He has well earned his honors. It would not be surprising if a desirable military rank were conferred upon him, and he en tered the field at once. without waiting for the United States torpedo boat Somers, which is being repaired here.

As would be exnected. whpn ir wa? reported in Washington that it was ex pected by some people that the Amer ican flag would be immediately raised here, one of the Cabinet officers re plied that the members of the Ameri can Government were not fools.

In case circumstances shall render it necessary for a convoy by United States vessels, they will be furnished by the Government upon the request of the Red Cross. The Red Cross rep resentatives, some 25 in number, will join the ship at Key West. If circumstances permit, Miss Bar ton will accompany the relief ship from Key West to Cuba.

Powe D 1 We Know By Experience Wise men use the experience of others and make it their own. 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 oarsapanlla 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 13, 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 saparilla 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. Now my eyes are so strong that the light nevei troubles me, and my health is good." Mrs. Carrie Weeks, Lompoc, Cal. Sarsaparilla Is the One True Blood Purifier.

April 20 Mexi co will prserve a strictly neutral atti tude in case of hostilities. Spaniards here generally appear to feel gloomy over the situation. OUR NEUTRALITY. We stated some days since that one of the well recognized principles of neutrality was that of refusing to al low either 'belligerent the right or op portunity to use the neutral port as a basis of supplies or of hostilities. The United States, in the Alabama case claimed and the arbitrators agreed -with them, that England should be iheld strictly responsible for permitting the Confederates to get aid and com fort in her ports. The United States, whatever her moral influence may be over these Isl ands, will not attempt to break the force of laws which she has enforced upon Great Britain. These Islands until annexed by act of Congress, are neutral territory. The United States will observe the neu trality. If it can only ibe maintained iby removing the warships from our harbor, they will be removed. No at tempt will be 'made to put us in an equivocal position, and expose us to a Spanish attack remote and improbable as it may be. On the other hand, if Congress is now made to believe that the occupa tion of these Islands, at the present moment, is an; urgent military neces sity, the treaty of ratification will now be made, and the next mail will an nounce it. But it will not be done, of course, without sending an adequate fleet to protect us. The probabilities are, we presume, that the Islands will cut no figure in the war now probably in progress. Spain will not scatter her forces in the Pacific. As all the world knows the quantitj' of American trade between our ports and San Francisco, there may be some temptation to Spanish privateers. Among the many difficulties privateers would be confronted with, would be that of taking captured ships to the Spainsh prize courts. They could be reached only by long and tedious voy ages. Besides, if the principle is ad hered to on both sides that free ships make free goods, the Hawaiian flag is quite sufficient to protect all American property afloat, if it is not contraband. The American coasting trade on the Atlantic has an immense value. Ex posed as it will be to Spanish attack, it will have one decided advantage.
