THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL, ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, MAY 2S, 1S98.
'4 TllK PACIFIC Commercial Advertiser, W. K. ARMSTRONG - EDITOR. SATURDAY MAY 28. WILL THE AMERICAN VESSELS CALL? On the 10th of this month, the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the American House of Representatives met, and at its request, General Scho field and Admiral Walker gave to the committee their views on the necessity of acquiring the Hawaiian Islands, as a military and naval strategic base. Mr. Berry asked Admiral Walker this question: "Will an ordinary war vessel run now from the Philippine Islands to San Francisco and back again without coaling?" Admiral Walker replied: "No; they should take on coal some where. These ship3 which it is said are to leave San Francisco with troop3 and supplies for the Philippine Isl ands, will have to stop at Honolulu that is, they all will stop there." While Admiral Walker is not the official who directs the movements of the vessels, he is so close to the Secre tary of the Navy, that his statement is almost authoritative, and we may expect that the vessels will call at this port. ducting its business. They do not suffer from .these violent attacks of disease. President McKinley, says, the N. Y., Tribune, has given the yellow journals some advice' on the subject of war successes. He remarked "that self laudation and exaggeration detract from rather than add to the brilliancy of these achievements." He seems to deprecate the practice of following the Indian method of celebrating him self, the constant repetition of "Heap Big Injun me." The people of the United States are divided into two classes, one, that regards the war as a necessary, but terrible evil, and an other, and regards it as a prolonged picnic, full of exciting incidents. President McKinley, himself a soldier, and sober from his own ex periences, recalls the dark days which followed the "Big Injun" days of the first skirmishes of the Civil War and the second thought of the Northern people, that although they had the resources of the world behind them, they made little headway against a people, who were without money, and had to get their ammunition largely through blockade runners. It is fortunate that President Mc Kinley knows the meaning of war, and discourages the whoop of the "Big Injun."

A large number, perhaps a majority of the members of the House violently attack many of the items of the appro priation bill', after it has been care fully prepared by the Executive and carefully revised by the Senate. The community will thank men who after careful investigation, enforce economy in the public service. But it does not thank them, when they fail to investigate carefully, and rash ly strike out items of expenditures that have been fixed by those who are responsible for the administration of the laws." The House sffould aid, and not block the administration. If the Government was suspected of wasting the public income, or it -was an accepted fact, that it was ex travagant, the members would be justi fied in putting on the brakes. There is no belief of this kind among the tax payers. On the other hand, it is conceded that the Government ser vice is carried on with singular honesty. The Senate has been disposed to be critical in its review of the appro priation bill. But it has generally ap proved of its items. What then is the matter with these members of the House? The officers of the Government, with some years of experience in the public service, devoting their time to its details, desirous of improving and enlarging it, refusing in many cases to ask for appropriations which might well be made for the benefit of the people, are suddenly met by these members with the foolish comments: "What do you know about administration? What do you know about the needs of the service? Give us a dice box, and we can throw for the amounts needed in the public service, as accurately as you who have been in it for years can estimate them. We have an instinct for grasping the needs of the Government, that is better than all of your ex perience." There must be some adequate cause for this singular attitude of these members of the House. No one, we believe, has any doubt about their honesty. Perhaps, they believe that the duty of a "statesman" is to make it hot for the Government. Perhaps they desire to make the Government and Senate feel that they have a "high and solemn duty" to perform in refusing to agree with them. Perhaps1, after all, it is only a case of "fits," common to young children, in Legislative Kindergartens, as well as in other schools. As the most of the members are inexperienced in the making of laws, and the administra tion of them, the too rapid eating of the green fruit of "Legislative honors, has brought on these severe "fits" of distressing economy. In such cases Mrs. Lydia E. Finkham's pills of pure modesty are often beneficial. The com munity, like a good old aunt makes due allowance for these diseases of Legislative childhood, and the an noying capers of the teething period. School will close in a few days. Until then, it is the fervent hope of all. that these "fits" will disappear, and these guileless Legislative youths will not do more damage, or make any more faces at the Government and the Senate than their inexperienced na tures will permit. It is quite remarkable too, that some of the other inexperienced mem bers of the House seem to instinctively respect the experience and knowledge of the Government in the way of con- O, Dewey was the morning Upon the first of May; And Dewey wa3 the Admiral Down in Manila bay; And Dewey were the Regent's eyes, Them orbs of royal blue; And Dewey feel discouraged?

A Complete Cure Effected by Hood's Sarsaparilla Now Enjoying the Best of Health, With Digestion Perfect. " My mother was subiect to sick head aches and indigestion for over a year. She was unable to stand for any length oi time, and was obliged to stay in a dark room a9 she could not bear the light. She had no appetite whatever and her stomach was bo weak she could not retain what food she did eat. She also had severe pains in her head. She suffered so much that she became but the shadow of her self. One day I happened to read a tes timonial about Hood's Sarsaparilla. It Sounded So Truthful I persuaded her to try this medicine. Before finishing the first bottl there was an improvement in her condition. She no longer threw up her food and her head ache was not as severe. She took in all four bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla and several boxes of Hood's Pills and regained her weight. She is now enjoying tne best of health. Her digestion is good and she can eat almost anything she wishes. She is 42 years old and says Bhe feels as well as when she was 16. Hood's Sarsaparilla made a complete cure in her case."
