All accounts agree Hut tho

Islands, Just when lm will do it,
and just in what Wilis tho treaty
will bo couched, are, of eour?o, secrets

RPi'rct?. Tlio maiu thing is
tho deliberate outrnni'o by tho Administration
upon a policy of annexation
nud colonial oxpansion. At
tho time of tho Hawaiian flurry four
years ago, a vast amount of partisan
intriguo aud passion entered into
tho quostion. Baffled conspirators
and foiled pluudorors always rago
and lift up their voices whou thoy
see their prey pluokod from between
their very jaws, aud much of tho
hysterics ovor President Cleveland's
Hawaiian policy was but tho sincero
anguish of men who saw good
things, aud, as they had thought,
Btiro things, slipping away from
them. But all that heat is past.
The original conspiracy to overthrow
tho Hawaiian Government
and steal away the islands, in which
tho American Minister participated,
does not now ontor directly into tho
question. With the slato sponged
clean, Mr. McKinloy has undertaken
to write on it a policy outiroly new
for the Uuited States.
To what motivos or to what pressure
he has yiolded it is not for us to
say. He had given many to understand
that he waB radically opposed
to annexation. WheD, in his inaugural
Bddress, he warned his countrymen
against "the temptation of territorial
aggression," he was thought
to have Hawaii in mind. His choice
of a Secretary of Stato who was on
record against annexation was supposed
to look the same way. In
private he has given assurances
which were taken to mean uncompromising
hostility to all kinds of
foreigu embroilment and to Hawaiian
annexation in particular. But
the country has found out, what
students of McKinley's career wero
well persuaded of, that his faculty
of adapting his words (o his hearers
doos uot at all imply that he has a
will of his own against Congress or
against the masterful leaders of his
party. Boiieau was unco discussing
a grammatical poiut with the Prince
of Conde, who grew violent. Tho
poet sarcastically apologized, saying,
"I shall hereafter always take
good care to agree with you when
you aro angry." Mr. MoKiuley always
agrees with convoutious and
parties aud even visitors that aro
Though time has takou most of
tho fury out of the Hawaiian
it has not in tho least diminished
tho objections to Hawaiian
annexation. These objections relate
both to the annexation itself and to
what it signifies for tho future. No
ono pretends that the population of
the islands is a desirable addition.
According to tho latest census,
taken within a year, it consists of
109,020 souls, of whom tho full-blooded
natives number 81,000, tho
Japanoso 21.000, tho Chinese 22,000,
tho Portuguese 15,000, half-brood
Hawaiians 8000, with scattering Americans,
English, Germans, etc.
What aro we goiug to do with these
mixed races? Evidently the Ohiueso
and Japauoso will have to go. Any
treaty must loavo tho laws of the
Uuited States supromo over tho
torritory annexed, and our laws do
not admit of the incoming of Chinese
laborore, or, constructively, of
Japanese. Sothe first thing we
Bhould havo to do would bo to give
those 50,000 Orientals a week's
notice to quit, Then wo could, with
fresh enthusiasm, pass resolutions
ogaiust tho expulsion of tho Jews
from Russia aud tho Armenian
Hawaii is to bo given a
"territorial government," it is said.
But in this to ho under tho present
lawfl praotically disfranchising the
natives? Aro tho Portuguese to retain
the eutlrage, und bo allowed to
outvote the handful of Amoricans?
And how loug will it be beforo Hawaii
is a full-fledged State, aud
our Presidential elections wlil
turn ou the ability of -Hawaiian
bosses to "suing" the Portuguese or
the Hula vote,
These are only a few of the practi
cal difficulties of annexation that
loap to vory one's mind. Bui tho
objections to aunoxatiou per sf,
strong as thoy are, weigh llttlo compared
with thoHo to tho policy of
which annexation is but tho first
stop. Iu tho first place, it will give
a now fillip to our already excessive
aud alarming national extravaganco
and overweening arrogance aud aggressiveness.
with tho usual contractors behind
them, aro already exulting ovor Hawaii
as a splendid placo to spend
money. There aro habors to bo improved
and fortified, and channols
to be dredged, and railroads to he
built, and cables to bo laid, and
coaling stations to be provided. All
this means more ships aud more
bumptiousness. One littlo group
of iBlauds may do very well for a
while, but soon others will have to
be exploited, aud wo shall entor up-ou
a glorious course of "land-grabbing,"
Cuba will como in, of course,
and San Domingo and Hayti aud
St. Thomas; nor will the mainland
of Central and South America loug

will not bo tho United States wo
People talk about the grand
and proteoting'mission of tho
United States. Wo aro not to shrink
selfishly and timidly within our own
bordors, but aro to go forth, as a
state-errant, to redress the wrongs
of other countries, to rescue the oppressed,
and, incidentally, to take
their land. That is what is called
the "reason of state" which has to
override tho ordinary reasons. But
ronson of state is a Macbiavollian
phrase which, as John Morloy said
in his recent lecture on tho author
of "Tho Prince," is translated in
practice into roason of party, and
that into reason of plunder. That
is tho great difficulty with this
thoory of our international mission.
This mission is a grandioso conception,
but there is nothing grandioso
about tho missionaries who are to
execute it. What they have in their
minds is a remorseless trampling
upon native rights, opportunities
for personal enrichment, roadinpss
to piok a quarrel with overy nation
that is in their way, and an ori of
gonoral national extravaganco and
waBte aud oppressive taxation. That,
in plain tonus, is what tho benevolent
mission of the United States
will como to in execution its ten
dor mercies proving oruol -and that
is the end to which tho Hawaiian
beginning will surely couduot us.
