THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER : HONOLULU, JUNE 21, 1S9S. THE i'AClMO Comtnercia! Advertiser, V. r:. ARMSTRONG EDITOR. TUESDAY JUNH 21. Till: (i JliOAT ALLIANCE. The British papers continue to com ment on Mr. Chamberlain's speech, in which he openly, and emphatically suggested an alliance between CJreat Britain and the United States. His suggestion is cordially approved of with the exception of some of the more conservative journals. Tlie.se suggest that there have already been some epidemics of good will between the iwo countries, ionowea uy equally se vere epidemics of bad temper. The proposed alliance must have a sound business basis or it can not last. No mere sentiment will sustain it. As a rule, the Anglo-Saxons and the Latins do not make successful business partnerships. The racial traits pre vent it. Even the Anglo-Saxons do not work well in harness with the Ger mans or the Russians. Temperament and habit tend to separate them. Poli tical institutions and thought prevent them from becoming congenial com panions. Between the British and Americans there is a strong similarity in racial instincts, in their political institutions, in the construction of their laws aiiO the administration of them. Their business and industrial methods are also alike, and a common language brings them c.'osely together. The separation of the countries by an ocean, and the unfortuaace Revolution have kept them apart. Chauncey De pew said last year, that if there was a war between Great Britain and the United States, it would b3 largely due to the histories furnished the American school children that perpetuate 1 tte original grievances of the Americans and even misrepresented facts. But the new histories are less frantic now, and the Jingoes of the two nations don't make such dreadful faces at each other. The British understand the value of foreign trade, and have btiilt up an enormous snipping. i he Americans have permitted their commercial flag to be virtually driven from the seas. The British desire to hold their enormous foreign trade as against the continental nations, and they need a strong and healthy part ner. The Americans begin to see the absolute need of foreign trade, and 111 "I 111 1 mat it may ue secured inrougu a partnership with tho only nation that has points in common with them. There is no sentiment in the propos ed union. It is a matter of self inter est in which racial resemblances aud common ideas on political government make the union easy. It is give and take on both sides. And it is es pecially convenient in the state of present Christian civilization where tho merchant marine must trade under cover of the guns of the cruisers. In the period of the early part of the eighteenth century, the merchantmen were convoyed by ships of war. At the end of the nineteenth century, the world seems to be no better off. If Great Britain will throw into the dicker with America, her great fleet, and a share in her foreign trade, and America promises to throw in her com ing navy, and her growing strength, we shall see "The greatest show on Earth," as showman Barnum called his amalgamated menageries. in the statement. General Sherman en dorsed it. Just so long as good sol diers could be obtained from the for eign element, by purchasing substi tutes, there was no reason why good j men should be sacrificed. Should the ! war continue m tno I'niuppines, some of the splendid fellows that stepped on our shores will perish, and for years to come their deaths will cause un necessary suffering in many homes. In these hours of excitement even Pa triotism becomes restive in the hands of Common Sense. SOMETHING Never since NEW SUN.

Posts, Ornaments, Stable After the capture of the Chinese fleet at Wai-hai-wai, during the late Chinese-Japanese war, the Chinese Ad miral Ting, after surrendering, com mitted suicide on his battleship, rather than face trial and death at home. Admiral Ito, who had received his sur render, was an old friend of his, and desired to give him the honor of mili tary burial at; his home in China. He resorted to this extraordinary and chivalrous method of doing it. The Chinese war ships that had surrendered and were in possession of the Japanese forces, had become the property of the Japanese Government, and Admiral Ito could not dispose of them. But the warship on which Ad miral Ting had killed himself had not been taken possession of. Admiral Ito thereupon said to the Chinese officers: "I do not accept the surrender of your vessel. Take her, and go to China with the body of your Admiral, and give him all the naval honors." This is in its noble sympathy, and the enormous sacrifice of a valuable war shin, perhaps the most chival rous incident recorded in authentic history.

UN WISE ENLISTMENTS. Admiral Nelson, after the battle of the Nile, would have been startled if one of the seamen had, w fh permis sion, stepped up to him, on the quarter deck, made his bow, and handed him a printed pamphlet, saying: "Admiral, here is an account of yesterday's battle written by a f'c'stle hand." We have before us a small pamphlet lettered, "A brief description of the battle of Manila Bay," by J. A. Wisner and II. F. Humphrey of the Baltimore's crew, composed and published on the Baltimore, after the recent engage ment. Extracts from it appear in an other column. The next newspaper ventures will be extras issued every naii nour, in naval engagements, from the Flagship, and sold at the usual prices to passen gers who have taken round trips for the war, in "liners" which can steam about at a safe distance from the en gagements, and insist on having the news hot and immediately.

(runip called at it, n n ;:30 '.M. He was a wise Colonel of a New York regiment who said to his men, after they had offered their services to the Government: "Very many of you have offered to enlist, because you are afraid of being called cowards, if you do not. Many of you have wives, children, or relatives dependent on you. You have no right to enlist until those who have none dependent on them have had the chance, nor, until you are ac tually needed. I will examino each case, and if I refuse you permission to enlist you can tell your friends that I am responsible and refuse to let you go." In the hysterical patriotism of the crowd injustice is done, and much dis tress is inflicted upon women and children. We hear of young men, in the troops which passed through this place recently, that have left their families practically destitute. During the great war in America such cases were common and flagrant. After the hysterical period passed off, volunteer ing stopped, to a large extent, and tho armies were recruited by conscription, which treated all alike. In a war for the sake of humanity, J inhumanity or suffering should not bo : an incident on the side of its defend- ' ers. War is savagery. Its miseries must be strictly bounded. Those who should 1 spared, with the lease suffering. j 0X1X008 tlllS OpP OP tUillty OI It has been often said that the last ! two years of the American Civil War j Were fought out. on the side of the ! in iii! sua Fort Street.
