THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL, ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, MAY 27, 1898.
' 1 THE PACIFIC Commercial Advertiser. "COL." M'GKKW ACiAlN. W. N. ARMSTRONG - EDITOR. I'llIDAY MAY 27. LT1JAX ALL1KS. Some of the political dilllc.ulties in volved in Cuha.ii intervention already appear. The insurgent government of Cuba seems to have resolved to be taken at once into President McKin ley's counsels. The people of the United States acting by their Presi dent have entirely disregarded the political situation in Cuba, excepting as it was involved in relieving the starving and downtrodden Cubans and tho expulsion of the Spaniards. The President evidently has no abiding faith in the political morality of the revolutionists. He refused to recog nize the Cuban government, because ho could not. and m cannot trust it. Congress under the popular movement has taken more "stock" in it than the President has. "Remember the Maine" is a grand cry, but it does not make the ignorant revolutionists any better than they are. They are still cruel and bigoted, and proud by inheritance, and will, sooner or later refuse any gratitude to the Americans for the splendid succor now lavishly given to them. No doubt General Lee has made President McKinley familiar with the class of people he is to deal with. The dispatches indicate trouble between Gen. Gomez and the Junta in New York. That party among the insurgents that gets the ear of the American Government will handle the American coin which will be used for political or warlike purposes. The wisdom of the President in re fusing to be placed under, or be bound by, the so-called Cuban government was evidently the result of a very care ful examination of the situation. It may safely be predicted, that the American Government will have, in the long run, more annoyance in deal ing with the Cuban rebels than with Spanish fleet. There seems to be some reluctance in Washington to allow a very large gift of guns and ammunition to the rebels. These may be used by them in destroying the Spaniards, in the first place, and than in annoying the Americans, if they refuse to follow the dictates of the Cuban government. The dispatches indicate that the Spaniards have chosen to cross the Atlantic, and fight the Americans near their own base. If this was their plan, the battle has probably been fought by this time. If fought it was not a Cavite affair. The more serious Amer ican journals admit- the superiority of the Spanish cruisers, over the Amer ican cruisers in speed, but hardly an equality in battleships. It is said by the European "naval critics that the Spanish fleet has been imperfectly trained in squadron practice. If it is true, the battle will turn on this important point of fleet evolution. During the naval fight between the Chinese and Japanese on the Yalu, the volumes of smoke from the rapid firing so enveloped the ships that systematic evolutions were made more by instinct and habit than by signals. At times, it was impossible to read signals. In such critical mo ments training and practice tell. Popular Veteran Once .More En rolled With Uncle Sam. The veteran Dr. John S. McGrew, father of annexation and a man who earned promotion in the Union Army darinc the civil war in the United States, may, after a respite of more than thirty years, again go into camp and see action. From A. D. McCook, secretary of the Volunteer National Reserve of the United States, Dr. Mc Grew has received the following let ter: Washington, D. C, May 1898. Colonel John S. McGrew, Honolulu, Hawaii. My Dear Colonel: Your patriotic letter just received. In reply will say that the National Volunteer Reserve is to be called out after the National Guard, and to take the place of the National Guard, when it is called out. I sincerely trust that there will be no necessity for another call, but will enroll your name, and in case your services' are needed, they will be call ed upon. With warmest regards, believe me, very sincerely yours. A. D. M'COOK. Tarn McGrew. son of the Doctor, is now a member of the famous Seventh Regiment of New- York. War Permits. The Equitable IJfe Assurance Socie ty of New York, one of the best known and at the same time one of the largest and wealthiest institutons extant is to the front with new inducements to insurers. This is nothing more or less than a free war permit issued to offi cers of the regular army and navy corns, officers and privates in the National Guard, Naval Reserve and volunteers. Mr. Bruce Cartwright, general agent for the Hawaiian Islands stands ready to give particulars in detail and it is reasonable to presume that many will take advantage of the liberal induce ment.

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 not rise or discharge. The doctor thought best to cut it out, but I objected.

At the Judiciary Building, I will sell at Public Auction, by order of the Min ister of the Interior, a large number of ORNAMENTAL CONCRETE FENCE POSTS AND STONE BASES. To every purchaser of a 30 cent box, containing three cakes of EGG WHITE SOAP, we will give free a beuatiful picture worth twice the price of the soap. Jas. F. Morgan, AUCTIONEER TE IP There are very favorable indications for the passage of the joint resolution in favor of the annexation of these islands, in the House of Representa tives. What action the Senate will take, when it reaches that body, is of course uncertain, owing to the delays which will obstruct its passage. If the American Executive directs the transports to call here, next week, it puts Congress in the attitude of accepting all of the advantages of an nexation, without legally recognizing them. We have been and now are, perfectly willing to abandon neutrality in favor of the United States, but, after the advantages which accrue to the United States from our course, it would seem as if annexation should bo made by them, in their own in terest. The correspondence regarding the Carter Memorial is to be regretted. It indicates the existence of some bitter feeling towards the Legislature. Whether or not this feeling is justi fied by its conduct need not now be discussed. Men with high sentiments can, if they choose to, gradually re move all misunderstandings. In some sense, we stand in the presence of the dead,- Soft and measured words only nonappropriate. Any appearances of anger only bring sorrow to hearts that are yet in the shadows of the Valley.
