THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER : HONOLULU, JUNE 21,
V. r:. ARMSTRONG
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
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
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.

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

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

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

case, and if I refuse you permission

In the hysterical patriotism of the
crowd injustice is done, and much dis

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.

inhumanity or suffering should not bo :
