THE PROPOSED WELCOME.
The enthusiasm of our citizens over
the expected visit of the American
soldiers is at a white heat. In fact it
has side tracked their better judg
ments. Preparations of the kind, re
quired are Letter made, when put in
the hands of a very few, with power
on their part to call in assistance. The
situation is peculiar. There is no as
surance that the American ships will
call at this port. There is a decided
opinion among some cool headed men,
that they will not call, inasmuch as it
would involve a loss of nearly three
days on the voyage, and time counts
in war measures, as the Spanish Ad
miral discovered when his "manana"
policy kept him from moving to Subig
hay, where he could have fought the
American fleet with greater advan
tages. A stop will not be made here
unless there is a reason for it which
is at present unknown to anyone here.
The theory of the preparation should
he, and is, in the minds of the lead
ing committee men to thoroughly plan,
but execute no part of the plan until
a vessel is signalled, and her com
mander advised with. Should no ves
sel appear, time only, and no money
will have been wasted. The "wheel
horses" in all celebrations here are
the commercial houses, who are lavish
in contribution. It is however, an
unjust tax on them frequently, and be
comes a burden. Very many who shout
for the most generous expenditure con
tribute nothing.
The generosity of the commercial
houses is prompt and large, and the
racial lines are down, and this is grati
fying.
Any suggestion which interprets
the war into a part of the policy of
extending American empire should be
suppressed. This war is one for the
sake of humanity, and not for con
quest, or annexation. The more clear
ly this line is drawn, the greater and
stronger will be the United States in
enforcing her foreign policy in the
future.
The death of Prof. B. G. Northrup,
of New Haven, closed a singularly use
ful life. Aside from his long and
valuable labors as Secretary of the
Connecticut Board of Education, he in
stituted and became the father of Ar
bor Day. In this he was the apostle
and missionary of village cleanliness
and beauty. He did not foster the
building of monuments, but he touched
the love of beauty in every heart, and
throughout New England the exist
ence of shrubs, and flowers, and clean
streets, and well kept side walks are
the evidences of his mission. His
visit to this city, in 1895 will be re
membered. He preached here, as else
where, the gospel of the Beautiful.
GERMANY AND THE UNITED
STATES.
WHERE ARE WE?
It will do no harm to take a little
reckoning of our position at the pres
ent hour, in which we are, to all in
tents and purposes, one of the belli
gerents. The Americans dominate
here, and are at one with their own
countrymen, in sustaining this war for
humanity. The enthusiasm and
liberality in making preparations for
the reception of American troops
shows that the blood is up, and the
love of victory is intense.
But we must remember, that the
war is one to remove the terrible
misrule of the Spaniards in Cuba, and
to stop the terrible cruelties inflicted
by them on the Cuban people. For
months past, many thousands of these
people have been starved to death,
and many thousands, If not hundreds
of thousands, are now suffering in the
extreme. The American forces are
pushing to their relief, as rapidly as
possible. Relief committees have been
formed in all the principal cities of
the country, and money has been gen
erously contributed.
How far are we. or the Americans
resident here, in sympathy with these
efforts to relieve the Cubans? Why
is it that the authentic, harrowing
accounts of barbarities inflicted on
men, women and children, at the close
of the nineteenth century have no
effect on us, while the prospect of an
armed body of men, passing by to
garrison an enemy's country, com
mands an unstinted amount of money
and enthusiasm for entertainment?
That which is noble, charitable, Christ
like apparently creates no enthusiasm
., whatever. But the project of exter
minating a lot of ignorant, bigoted,
boastful, miserable creatures, in the
Philippines 'opens hearts, and purses
without limit. Some wicked philo
sophers say that we are nearer to
barbarians than we like to acknowl
edge. A little four years old girl, in Wai
liiki, prayed on Saturday night. After
asking for blessings on all her friends,
she added: "God bless the Spaniards
too." The Master had said when he
took one of the children in his arms;
"of such is the Kingdom," etc. As he
excluded the elders in specifiying the
census of Heaven, he probably assum
ed that the elders would, if engaged
in war with a neighbor substitute in
any prayers, a curse for a blessing,
and therefore could not be regarded
as proper citizens of the Heavenly
abode.
Should the troops fail to visit us,
it would not be a selfish plan to use
the funds raised for the hearty glori
fication of the troops, in feeding some
of the starving reconcentrados of Cuba.
The American papers complain of
the bitter things said in the German
papers about the motives of the Amer
ican people in engaging in war with
Spain. It is true many harsh and pro
voking things are said. The mercan
tile classes, as a rule, sneer at the
professions of the American Govern
ment, and; refuse to credit it with any
sincere purpose to simply enforce Cu
ban independence.
The German Government does not
declare neutrality. This enables its
merchants to trade with both belli
gerents, in a very unrestricted way.
Refusal ' to proclaim neutrality does
not indicate any desire to interfere.
Minister White, at Berlin, says that
it will not interfere. The Norddeutsche
Allgemeine Zeitung, says, "Germany
will take no sides in the pending
affairs. Considering that one-third of
the population of the United States are
German, it is altogether out of the
question that Germany shall take any
steps against the United States."
No doubt the American protective
tariff is annoying to the Germans,
especially its strike at their sugar beet
industry. Besides, the German papers
make the mistake of believing that the
yellow journalistic talk in America,
about the ardent willingness of the
people to "lick all creation' is the
talk of the majority of the people.
The Germans residing here, natural
ly reflect, in some degree, the pre
vailing public opinion at home. But,
even if they do not implicitly believe
in the honorable motives declared by
the United States of prosecuting the
war for humanity only, they are join
ing in the proposed welcome to the
American troops, if they land here.
Disappointed.
Harry Gillig, who is known here as
the jolliest of tourists, is known down
on the Atlantic coast as a yachtman of
high degree. He has for several years
been commodore of one of the swell
New York clubs. During the first
spasm of the war fever, Gillig offered
his services to the United States as
navigator, commander, etc. He was
told that the only place open was that
of engineer. Harry was rather angry
and remarked that the country seemed
to be in need of only plumbers and
gas fitters for war purposes. He reas
oned that the plumbers would be just
the people for charging.

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
aDd 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 nood'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 never
troubles me, and my health is good."
