The refuaal of Hawaii to mako any
indemnity for tho excluaion of tho im
migrants taken to Ilonolulu by the
Bteamehip Shinahu Maru, or to mako
any chango hereafter in tho policy
adopted in that affair and in tho case
of tho Kinai Maru, forcea a direct iaaue
with Japan.
Tho controveray turns on a very tew
pointa. Hawaii takes the impregnable
ground, which she flnda fortifled in ac-
tuai practice Dy tno nistory ot our own
leglalation, tbat a country has tho right
to reguiato and to restrict immigration.
Japan doea not diapute thia general
prlnciple, but noida, urat, mat tno ac
tual laws paaaed violate Hawaii'a treaty
with hcr, and Bccondly, that in the in
atanco for which indemnity waa dc
manded tho laws wero cnforced with
undue harahneaa, amountiug to injua-
tico, the deciaion ot the supremo court
ot Ilonolulu being eapecially arbitrary.
But tho executive authority of Hawaii
cannot bo expected to go contrary to
tho decialons of tho higheat judicial
authority, and a8 to tho treaty Hawaii
doea not admit tbat it haB beon contra
vened. What will bo tho outcome? Poaaibly
tho Japaneao Miniator will tako himaelf
bome in dudgeon. If Hawaii atood

Tho exact merits of tho caso cannot

In tlio gond old davs of our graud-
fathcra in Ohlo. Eonrral mmtor waa a
grcat event, aaya Hanilin Gatlnnd.
Twico each yoar, in April and in Aug
uat, tho law rcquired tho mon ot each
county to aatcinblo for genoral train
ing in "tho nianual of arma," aa it was
ofton called. And tho order waa prct-
ty gonorolly obcycd.
it was a cnanco for tho lockev to
trado horecs; an opportunlty for tho
wonion to goatip, a day of rcst for tho
hircd handa; a mceting tlaco for lov
cra; a fair and Fourth of July with
elngorbrcad and cidor for tho boys.
To tho 8oldiory it was a jolly farco.
On tho moming of Aug. 20, 1814, tho
worm-catcn drums and tho moldy flfes
awoko and uttcrcd aucli marlial noiso aa
they could, and from overy nook and
corncr of tho woodcd land, on foot and
on horscbnck, tho sturdy farmcra and
villagora of Brown county took morry
way toward uuasoilviilo, wucro, on a
broad, smootli fleld, tho training waB
appointcd to bo hcld. Each man
brought auch military accoutrcmenta aa
ho had, and varioua and exceoding aor
ry woro the uniforma which camo from
tho garret pegs and out of chcsls ou
thia grcat day.
Uuna of all eraa, ritlea of all Iongtha.

worth bringine. Thoao who uad no

and ao it waa that thoy woro called "tho

Tho oliiccrs, pompous aa turkoy cocka

colonels and generals strugglcd with
rortitudo to kcep tbo excrctso koycd to
their martial dignity, which was a hard
taak, indced.
ilowover. tno Mexican war was brew-
ing in 1844, cxcitemcnt waa running
bigb, and an unueuallv largo lurnout of
ablo bodicd citizena tllled tho lanea and
tho bordcrs of tho training fleld with a
crowd of people, rather moro martlal
minded than of wont.
Tbo lancs in every directlon wero
fenced in with horacB, and trading
wont on in a acore of places at once.
Thirty souls went through tho crowd
sclling gingerbread and cider to tho
young beaux, and big copper ccnts
changed hands wherovor they wont.
Cider and gingerbread wcre tbo treat-
ing deucactcs of tuat day. And in tho
midat of all tho flfes squeaked and
wailed and tho drum uttcred its rattling
Thero was another matter of great
intcrest which many, both old and
young, wero diacusaing. UlyaaeB Grant,
tno tanner's son, was juat returned
from Weat Point aa brovel aecond lieu
tenant, and this was so important,
ho had been aeked to drill theregiment.
Manv of tho voung men had known
tho tanner's son when he waa a baah
ful and reticont echoolboy, and they
wondered how he would eucceed with
tho drill.
Rome of them had caueht a chmnse
of him in his neatly fitting, dark bluo
uniform and hia whito trousers and
gloves, and it was freely stated that ho
was presumptuous to aay tno least.
At last tbo bour camo ior tuo marcn-
ing to begin. Tho soldiery moved into
tho broad, smooth lot. Tho ofllcera
woofed and grumbled tbeir unintelligi
blo orders: tbo men marched in comi-
cal diearray in position, the waga all
carrying their brooms or cornstalks and
grinning beninu tno omcera' dbcks.
Thoy aoemed a aorry rogiment.
Then tho peopio all began to iook ior
tho cadet. Ho kept poaition in ono
cornorof the fleld, modeatly waiting till
tho general ahould call him and turn
ovcr tho command to him. Ho aat on
his horso nuito calm and craceful.
Tho signal came, tho elended, beard
leaa young fellow galloped acroaa tbo
fleld, rcigned up and saluted in aplon
did style, for it was woll known that no
ono could excel him in horsemansbip.
Tho men neored cunoualv and aome-
what disdainfullv at tho pale, slonder
youth in his long bluo coat and big
epaulettes. ne woro a cap, and arouna
his slim waist was a red aaan. iio
looked to bo only a boy, but bo as-
toniabed tbo men and won the aumtra
tion of tho boys and girls by his flne
horsemansbip and by his completo mas-
tcry ot tno men.
This flrst order mado every man
straighten up. It was tho voice of a
trainod Boldier. The old ofllcers barked
out thoir commands, but Cadet Grant'a
voice, bigh-keyed, but ciear anu caim,
cut acroas tho parade ground with tho
preciBion of a bugle.
It was his flrst command outaido tho
academy, and he folt a very humau
pride in vindicating himaelf in tho facea
of thoso who had sneered at him when
ho wont away four years beforo.
I'or moro tban an bour no put tno
men through tho simplor evolutions
and tho manual of arms. Tho farco
becamo a serious and well-ordered drill.
Tho men thomselves felt tho martial
cbaracter of tho young drillmaeter, and
lent their best ruluua to tuo prompt cxc
cution of his ordors.
Tho Bpectators voted it tho best mus
tor in years, and when it was all over
tbo old citizena and omcors came to
Cadet Grant to say:
"You dono nobly. It was a com
ploto success."
Belng human, ho rcjoiced in his uni
form and in tho splondor of command.
Belng young he found plcasuro alao ln
tho ahy glancea of admiring girla. Al
togothor it was a red letter day for tho
vouucr soldicr.
Tho famo of It reachcd tho "Gravcl
club." a self-annointod "committco on
tho universo" which inet boforo tho
court hcuso door, and that nlgbt tho
famo of tho tannor's boy camo to theso
regulatora of all thlngs human, and
thoy reluctantly admltted his abillty,
but sald:
"West Point dono it. West Polnt
mado a man of "im."
"M well yca," admltted ono who
waa tho boy'a friond. "But at tho
same timo West Polnt had aumpthlu'
to work on."
It was aeveral days aflcr this that tho
young cadet waa ridlng in tho stroets
of Cinciunatl, foellng very proud and
happy In hia now uniform and ln tho

And lay Its hc art on ours I-James Backham,
A Wish.
I ask not that raj bed of c!eat1i
From bands of greedy helrs be free ;
For theio beslege the latest breath
Of fortune's favored sons, not me.
Iask not each klnd soul tokeep
Tearless, when of my death he hears.
Let those who wlll, If any, weepl
There are worse plagnes on earth than tears,
I ask but that my death may flnd
The ficodom to my llfe denled;
Ask but the folly of mankind
Then, thenat last, to qult my slde.
Spare me tho whlspering, crowded room.
Tho f rlends wbo come, and gape, and go;
The ceremonlous alr of gloom
All, which makcs death a bldeous aliowl
Kor brlng, to see me cease tollvo,
Some doctor full of pbraae and fame.
To shake his saplent head, and gtve
The IU he cannot cure a name.
Ncr f etch, to take the accustomed toll
Of the poor slnner bound for deatb,
nis brother-doctor of the soul,
To canvass nlth offlclal breath.
The f uture and Its vlewless thlng
That nndlscover'd mjstery
Which one who feelsdeath's wlnnowlsg wlngl
Must needs read clearer, sure, than he,
Brlng nono of these; but let me be,
Whilo all around ln sllence Ues,
Moved to tho wlndow near, and see
Once more, befere my dylng ejei,
linthed In the sacred dews ot raorn
SBS The wlde aeilal landscape spread
Tbe world wblch was ere was born,
The world whlcb lasts when I am dead;
Whlcli never was the frlend of one,
yot promlted love It could not gtve,
But llt for all Its gonerous sun,
And llved ltself, and made ns llve.
There let me gazo till I become
In soul, wlth what I gaie on, wedl
To feel tbe unlverse my home;
To have before my mlnd lnstead
Of tbe slck room, the mortal strlfe,
The turmoll for a little breath
The pure eternal course of llfe,
Not human combatlngs wlth death t
Thus feellng, gazlng, mlght I grow
Composed, refresh'd, ennobled, ciear;
Then wllllng let my splrlt go
To work or walt elsewhero or heret
