THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER : HONOLULU, JULY 4, 1S9S.
THK PACIFIC Commercial Advertiser. W. N. ARMSTRONG - EDITOR. MONDAY :::::: J IT A" i. thk Fornni of .illy. THK HATTLK HYMN The yar 1 SS has ;thaly wiitun across the i-ac of American history "This is the t-nl of Chapter II." .Tho organization of the Federal I'ni on in 17S7, the careful experiments in tho harmonious working of its mechan ism, ami finally, the readjustment of its parts, ami the cementing of the Union, with the blood of half a million fifSutW'il :nd WTfife III 1j.i across the pae of American history "This is the end of Chapter I." On this day, and at the present hour the words of the beginning of Chapter III are moving across the page of this history. Material prosperity, a vast in crease in population, the absorption of public lands, and the intense energy of tho agricultural and manufacturing, forco the casting away of the swad dling clothes of the year ISfiO. General Washington, looking west ward, put the Mississippi far beyond the possible boundaries of the nation To him, what was beyond was not within the scope of political thought. The Farewell Address was spoken to a few people huddled on the Atlantic c oast, and their friends sparsely picket inK tho wilderness lying on the west- em slope of the Alleghanies. The wis dom of that hour was not the wis dom of this hour. Washington looked on a few thousand producers of tobacco and dried fish. His successors look upon 15,000,000 of industrial workers, in live thousand different articles, all demanding a share in the world's trade. While the nation was waiting, and considering, and firmly held down by its inheritance of narrow political thought and habit, Humanity sudden ly flashed the sword before its eyes, and rallied its young men into the army. The Spanish war closes Chap ter II. For war is the Royal Engineer and Sapper that undermines national hab its, blasts out the stumbling blocks of conservatism, cuts down the ob structions planted by effete nations, throws bridges over the streams of in ternational prejudice, and creates a lioyal Itoad to just and wholesome em pire. It this perilous? Does it mean final decay? The schools, the colleges, the higher education, and the marvelous advancement of women remove the peril. Above all the Universal Church gradually takes the creeds behind which men hide their acts, and makes them transparent. The deeds begin to shine through the creeds. Thought and culture, and altruism, and the growing conservatism of moral respon sibility hold the reins over the black steed "Aggrandizement," and will hold him to the track. Patriotism will cease to he a mere pleasant sentiment, free from obligations, but a living force, wise, conservative, just. This anniver sary day will become one of thought and reflection, not one of fiireworks and picnics. No more appropriate occasion than the present can appear, for the repub lication of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic," when, after thirty-three years of pace, the American Nation takes up arms for the freedom of the oppressed in Cuba. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the I,ord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored! He has loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword; His truth is marching on. I have seen him in the watch fires of a hundred circling camps: They have builded him an altar in the evening dews and damps; I have read his righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps; His day is marching on. I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel; As ye deal with my contemners, so wun you my grace shall deal:" Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel; Since God is marching on. He ' is sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat; He is sifting out the hearts of men be fore his judgment seat; Oh be swift, my soul, to answer him! be jubilant, my feet! Our God is marching on. In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in his bosom, that trans figures you and me; As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free, While God is marching on. .MORTUARY REPORT.

The immediate importation of opi um, in the event of annexation, is one of the cases, which are affected by the special provision of the treaty, and of the joint resolution, that repeals any law of this Republic which is in conflict with the Constitution of the United States. While the general municipal legislation of this Republic is not contrary to any provision of that Constitution, tho municipal law prohibiting the importation of opium, unfortunately, is opposed to it. The Supremo Court of the United States has emphatically decided the principle involved in it. The most of our municipal laws will stand until Congress shall repeal, or modify or re-enact them. This law prohibiting the importation of opium, being probably, unconstitutional, will become invalid at once. An importer of opium, in the event of annexation, will demand an entry of his goods at tho custom house, and on the matter being referred to the Secretary of the Treasury, in Washington, we presume that directions will be made directing its admission. The only method of restricting the evil is by enacting laws by the local Government strictly regulating its use, as the sale of alcoholic liquors is re gulated in the different States. In view of the situation, it would, probably, be wiser to enact such laws now and in conformity with the Con stitution of the United States, rather than permit the most unrestricted sale ! of it, after it is once in the country. For, if it is admitted under American laws, thjre is no provision of law in existence hero which will regulate it. In refusing to enact a law at the present time regulating its use, "the friends of tho natives," failing to realize the new conditions, under an nexation, may be driving the knife deep into the vitals of the Chinese as well as the native people.
