THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISE!!: HONOLULU. JULY lU M.
TH PACIFIC . Commercial Advertiser, W. N. ARMSTRONG - EDITOR. THURSDAY JULY 20 L.UKtK OIFT. The record cf contributions to bene fit mankind, luring the last year, in the States, is a Krand one. The fol lowing is a record of some of the larger ones: Joseph Loubat, New York, to Colum bia college, $1,000,000. O. II. Payne, New York, to Cornell university, $1,500,000. Cora J. Flood, San Francisco, to University of California, $2,250,000. Edward Austin, Hasten, to colleges, $900,000. P. I). Armour, Chicago, to Armour institute, $."00,000. J. M. Bennett, Philadelphia, to Uni versity of Pennsylvania, $400,000. Oalista M. Palbot, New York, to charity, $300,000. George P. Smith, Philadelphia, to -charity, $345,000. Albert A. Munger, Chicago, to Art institute and charity, $500,000. Moody Currier, Manchester, N. II., Tor cirt gallery, $300,000. P. II. Mast, Springfield, O., to Wes Jeyan college, $375,000. V. E. Hale, Chicago, to charity, 5300,000. Solomon (Mead, Greenwich, Conn., fto churches, $208,000. G. A. Pillsbury, Minneapolis, Minn., to Pillsbury academy, $250,000. J. P. Braidee, Boston, to charity, $225,000. David j. Snyder, Springfield, O., for a public park, $200,000. J. D. Rockefeller, New York, to University of Chicago, $200,000. Susan M. Ransom, Cambridge, Mass., to ohiarity, $200,000. J. M. Davis, Cincinnati, O., to Gar field university, $200,000. Amos R. Eno, New York, to charity, $203,000. Felix R. Brunpt, Pittsburg, to chari ty, $200,000. Mercy Gray, Oakland, Cal., to churches, $200,000. Iucien Moss, Philadelphia, to chari ty, $200,000. TJie total amount of these gifts is $11,176,000. Gifts innumerable in small amounts are not recorded. The direction of these large gifts makes an interesting study. The don ors belong to all denominations. The largest of all "during the year, that of Baroness Ilirsch, .not mentioned above, fcecause it is not an American gift, ex ceeds the total amount of all other gifts. The undenominational schools and colleges receive the largest share. The benevolent associations follow. Since the charities have come under the management of business men, the gifts have greatly increased. The churches receive only $4GS,000. Direct bequests to churches do not ap pear to be favored by the rich. The bequests indicate a dislike of sectarian ism. Whatever tendencies these gifts in dicate,: they clearly demonstrate the indifference of Americans to the estab lishment of "families" and the creation of .large estates which may last for generations. THE MOB WINS. The strikers have won a victory in Cleveland over the street railway com panies. But it is a victory of the mob. The railway company was able to fill thi? places abandoned by thq strikers. There were an abundance of American citizens who were -anxious to get employment. The mob said "lo these citizens: "You shall not get em ployment, there is no law which for bids it, but we will make the law for the case." While indignant men In the North are complaining of the social anarchy arising out of lynch law at. the South, the mob .made lynch- law in the North, which was not suppressed by the State. While the State refused to protect the railway companies, and ' the citizens seeking work, it also forbade the com ' panies to protect themselves by a force of their own. All this ihas taken place in a city which was built up by the settlers from New England. But, after all, there is no serious danger 'to republican institutions in these disturbances. They are only the conflict of the social forces which are gradually adjusting the industrial sit uation. There is no general defiance of law and order in acts of the mob, but a defiance of special laws. The ten dency is towards danger, but the dan ger point will not be reached. As there are no legal methods of ad justing differences between labor and capital, illegal methods will be used. The Constitutions and laws protect and guarantee political rights. That is the first step in progress. In due time there will be constitutions establish ing and protecting social rights. The mob is, unfortunately, the agency for making clear what these rights should be. As the intelligent men will not come together and frame wise social constitutions the only way to secure them is by acts which are forbidden j by human law. THE AUTUMN FESTIVAL. t ; t The promoters of the Autumn ' Festival to be held in Chicago during the month of October propose u in- ! vite Aguinaldo and his staff to become ' their guests. They assume tha: the ; Filipino hero will be conquered before' that time, and as a conspicuous guest at the Festival will attract as much if no more attention than the President will. Mr. Edward Atkinson and the venerable Senator Hear may keep their consciences void of offense by acting ! on the committee of reception. Ifj Aguinaldo is captured and becomes a ! prisoner of war will the government j permit him to visit the Autumn Festi-! val and serve as the "drawing card?"' Here at once arises one of the per plexing questions created by democra cy. If the 0,500,000 of citizens who voted the Democratic ticket wish to confer upon Aguinaldo some honors shall the 7,000,000 of citizens who voted the Republican ticket oppose them? If these millions of Democra tic voters believe that Aguinaldo rep resents true democracy, and self-government, why should the millions of Republican voters prevent them from J exercising the inalienable rights of freemen? If Senator Hoar wishes to deliver an address of welcome to the "second Washington," as he calls this insurrectionist, should he not have :he privilege of presenting him to th? peo ple in person? On the other hand, after this worth less and corrupt mongrel has been conquered shall the government allow the people to fondle him at the Fes tival? Is it for the Executive, to de termine how much fondling of an enemy, who has slaughtered our bo3, may be permitted, under our institu tions and creeds? When, in 1879, one hundred and fif ty cApache warriors were captured and imprisoned in St. Augustine. Florida, after they had cruelly murdered wo men and children in Arizona, the young ladies who were spending the Winter months in the place flirted with the young braves. The commanding officer, therefore, refused to permit the young women to visit the fort in which the Indians were confined. Thereup on the young ladies indignantly pro tested against it on the ground that neither the Constitution or the laws of the United States prevented free born American girls from shaking hands with, or making love to, Indian pris oners. And the commanding officer withdrew the order. So that there is here involved another perplexing ques tion. The Advertiser suggests to the pro moters of the Autumn "Festival that instead of presenting "Aguinaldo to the people, that they secure the presence of all of the convicted murderers in the States, .who are awaiting execu tion. If two hundred of these wretches were placed upon a platform, with nooses around their necks, and were provided with a "sumptuous repast" before the multitude, the scene would be the best drawing card cf the Festi val. Besides, as each convicted mur derer usually kills only one person, the spectacle would be highly moral, in comparison with that of exhibiting Aguinaldo who has killed venil hun dred iople and now is r.Ccd as a "double-dyed villain." As the matter now stand, it is nv. probable that Aguinaldo can lo uvur ed in time for the Festival. we Know SUB-DIVISION OF THE BICillTON II0.1STE AH By Experience JULIA DENT GRANT. NEWPORT. R.
