THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, AUGUST, 19, 1S90.
THE PACIFIC Commercial Advertiser. W. N. ARMSTRONG EDITOR. SATURDAY AUGUST 11 THE UUKAN ORPHANS. It is estimated that there are now over r0,000 orphan children in Cuba, who are destitute, and suffering. Path etic stories are told of hoys and girls not over eight years of age, wander ing about in search of food for younger brothers and sisters. One correspon dent of an eastern journal says that he saw a small boy, a mere child, trying to cook some food in an old tin can which he had set up over a couple or stones in a small forest grove. He was bright eyed, ragged and dirty. Two small, haggard looking com panions sat by him hungry, patiently wa-iting for him to make the water boil. This correspondent says that if a picture of the scene were boldly put on canvass, and it was exhibited through the United States, it would secure large contributions to the Cu ban Orphan Fund. The sight of suffer ing and misery stimulates sympathy. Several of the leading American journals comment on the small contri butions made for the re'ief of the suf fering children of Cuba. Not a voice has been raised in opposition to the scheme for aid. 'Miss Clara liarton and the newspaper correspondents urge an the strongest language the relief of these suffering little waifs, but only the sum of $16,064 has been furnished up to the 1st of August, and only a few people, hardly a hundred, have contri buted this amount. The American people cannot be accused of lacking generosity. They responded richly to the claims from Johnstown, when only a few hun dred suffered from the flood. They raore than compensated the sufferers from the earthquake in Charleston by sending them about $1,000,000, and over one million of dollars was given to the starving peasants of Russia. But public sympathy is a quick sympathy. It gives instr.ntly or not at all. The moralists say that this is not the highest order of charity, because it 5s not the act of well regulated minds with steady habits of giving. The nation gave three hundred mil lions of dollars, for "the sake of humanity" by driving out the Span iards from Cuba. No citizen pai directly into the fund one dollar. But after the nation has done its work, the duty of the individual citizen as apparent. It begins with the after math of war and pestilence. But we have the curious phenomena in tne case of Cuba, that a generous people permit these orphan children, together with the sick ard decrepit to suffer when almost within sight of "the rich est nation on earth." and an out of door life. He will scent j out a uenorous community, just as j cattle pick out water holes. It is now pretty well known that the hordes of tramps who infested the east- I ern States, after the Civil war were j :1k results of the abnormal conditions of that war. The nature of" military service draws out of men the habit j and desire for monotonous and peace- j ful labor. It was a singular exhibition ' of the social conditions, during the i seventies, when, for instance, the towns on xne nignways between Boston and j New York, and the highways between I New York, Albany, and Philadelphia. I AUSTRALIAN FEDERATION. were infested with able bodied men. who slept in the barns, asked and asked and even demanded food at the farm houses, and finally created a mild reign of terror, until laws were passed which grossly insulted the tramps, and prompted them to withdraw their patronage of the housekeepers. For the same and other causes, the tramp is about to infest this city. There is but one way to dispose of them, so far as they make personal visits to residences. That is, to refer them at once to the office of the Asso ciated Charities, and decline to give them aid. If any one desires to iriv'e aid to any particular tramp, because he tells an uncommon tale of woe, it should be done through the Associated Charities. If the tramp does not move on, the police station should be rung up, and the case stated. The police department should have a qurck and special service for this purpose. For the outlying districts, a mounted ser vice should be ready at all times. Unless citizens, and especially house keepers, act together, our social life will soon be made annoying. The As sociated Charities should, and will, act for the entire community, and no doubt they will be sufficiently provided with funds. j SYDNEY, Aug. 3. Mr. Haynes : moved an amendment to the Federal ; Address, setting forth that the vote against the Bill was not against Fed eration, but against the adoption of any constitution which could not be amended by a majority of the Austra lia people. Mr. Barton's amendment was nega- i lived, and the debate on the address to ! the Queen, praying Parliament to pass the Federal Enabling Bill, was ad- ! journed.

The following statistics of the num )er of vessels that were entered and cleared from the several ports of Cuba or the month of May last, as well as the tonnage of the vessels entered and cleared, have been prepared by the War Department: Number of coasting vessels entered. PUBE AIR 93J number of coastwise vessels The same strange moral phenomena appeared after the Civil war. One of those who gave themselves to the work of elevating the negro, often said that the phenomena appeared to defy analysis. For, the Constitution had" protected slavery, and under the slave codes of the'Southern States, the old, the infirm, the disabled, and the children were cared for by the slave owners, and as a rule, they were well cared for, and the cost of this care made slavery an expensive affair. Then the sword- freed the slave, and absolved the ruined master from v all legal obligation 4 to maintain the dis abled. The nation that freed the slaves, then turned them, landless, ignorant, penniless and disorganized out into the woods to shift for themselves. The story of the sufferings of the aged, the sick and the helpless children has never been adequately told. The Freedmans Baaik, organized under the authority of thot Federal government, gathered in about $3,000,000 of the money of the emancipated slaves, and then went into bankruptcy. At the same time, the American peo ple were generous and sympathetic. Four years of war hrd however dead ened the feelings of the people. The law of the survival of the fittest worked with terrible energy. No doubt, large numbers of negroes suffered and died through want, caused by the act of Emancipation. But the story of human suffering was an old one, and the quick sympathy died out. cleared, 878; number of foreign vessels (entered. 397; number cleared, 381; to tal number of coastwise and foreign vessels entered, 1,330; total number of coastwise and foreign vessels cleared, 1,259.
