THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER : HONOLULU, MAY
W. N. ARMSTRONG EDITOR.
"Algernon Sartoris, a grandson of
General Grant, has received an ap
pointment in the army, and on his
own application, will serve on the staff
of General Lee."
Upon this 30th day of May, 123,000
American volunteers, are in camps,
armed and moving towards the An
tilles. On this day, also, an American
fleet, with its decks cleared for action
either confronts the Spanish Armada,
or has locked arms with it in the
strange mystical dance of death.
On this 30th day of May, the sur
vivors of the generation that fought
for the Union of States, stand over the
graves of the dead, and smother their
windowless palaces of rest, with
flowers. But here in the central Paci
fic, the Southern Cross hangs low in
the sky, above some of them. Na
ture, always kind to these exiles, kees
the sward over their graves in ever
lasting green, and orders that only the
softest wind gather the sweetness of
the Valley's perfume, and distill it
over these resting places. 1 ij
The men of the generation which
engaged in a bloody struggle with each
other over the cause of Union, give
placo to the sons of the succeeding
generation that keep step to the same
music, in the march against a common
enemy, in the cause of humanity.
Stranger than the legends of fiction,
the invisible hands of Grant and Lee
move in the air in an attitude of bless
ing over their own flesh and blood,
at whose sides are buckled the two
swords that were sheathed at Appo
matox. HO would, indeed, have been
called a faise prophet, who had risen
upon the bloody field of Cold Harbor,
and announced to those great com
manders, while throwing their kill
ing legions against each other, the
harmony and union of the year 1898
One might give rein to the fancy,
and have seen in the gray light of
this Commemorative morning, the
ghostly figures of these great com
manders, standing beside each other,
with the vast legions of the blue and
gray in sprectral lines erect and silent
before them. The invisible bugles
sounded "attention," and "present."
The shadowy veterans saluted, and
vanished, with their commanders brfck
to their dreamless sepulchres.
"TWO DOLLAR WHEAT."
Only a few months ago, the value of
wheat w'as'so low, the American farm
ers were in distress. Today, it is
relatively the highest priced article in
the world's markets. It was believed
by the writers on crops, a few years
ago, that "wheat had seen its best
days." The opening of vast territories
in South America, Canada, and Aus
tralia seemed to be a condition that
excluded any large rise in its price, in
the future. All predictions have gone
wrong. The world is treated to a new
object lesson. What was believed to
be impossible has happened. Men have
not yet learned to conquer the sea
sons, excepting on the Ewa and other
plantations here, and on narrow areas
of soil elsewhere. The scientific sap
persand miners and pioneers are slow
ly moving in the campaign to secure
a "triumph over nature," which means
really, a conquering of our own
ignorance. When Prince Kraptokin
tells us, that it is possible, under the
most scientific cultivation, to obtain
products from the earth to the value
of $4,000 per acre, it makes the future
.bright for the human race.
Even the suffering and ignorant
farmers of Kansas are learning some
thing. Its State Board of Agriculture
says: "Kansas farmers are learning
year by year that their business, if
profitable, must be so conducted that
it is not the mere playing of a game
of chanco with the weather or with
a single crop; that a somewhat diver
sifled, and yet not too scattering,
agriculture and a studying of and
adaptation to climatic condition?, tho
demands and the markets are essen
tial (not more, perhaps, but as much)
in Kansas as elsewhere. Those who
most fully recognize these conditions
and most intelligently respond to their
inexorable requirements are realiaing
a fair or large prosperity. Others who
persistently defy or deny tliem are
ready to declare that farming is no
longer a source of profit, that farmers
are slaves of those in other pursuits,
and that the times are politically,
financially and morally out of joint.
Although no vocation is all pleasure
or all profit, the men wTho conduct the
business cf farming with the same
energy and skill as the successful
merchant or professional man will
reap the same and, as a rule, a greater
and more certain measure of reward;
the time has passed, however, if it
ever existed, when fortunes were made
by unskilled owners of farms, large or
small, anywhere. Convincing proof of
either proposition can be found in
almost any one of the 105 counties of
Kansas. Muscle, to win, must be lubri
cated with brains."
The Washington Star says that the
people are already impatient for ac
tion. The lioaru oi tiirategy is caueu
the "Board of Lethargy." "There is,"
it says, "a universal opinion that the
Spaniards have been much more adroit

board of the department in Wash-
The prominent feature in a popular
war is that the average man expects
to conduct it. in the first instance'.
There are now about fourteen millions
of generals and admirals in the
United States, who have made up their
minds as to the proper strategy. They
do not agree with each other in their
tactics but agree that the commis
sioned generals and admirals are in
competent, until one of them scores
All this is only a repetition of the
early days of the Civil war. After
a while some reverses make it plain
that trained men make the best
fighters. Then the vast army of
generals and admirals quietly resign,
and let the trained men do the work.
The graves of many thousands of
men, whose lives were simply tnrown
away by the "On to Richmond" cries of
the people in 1861, are decorated to
However impatient the people are
to see the floor promptly wiped with
the Spaniards, the strong conservative
sense of the majority will sustain the
