APRIL, 7th, 1898. WAB OB PJEACK. It now seems probable that before an other issue of The Islander is pub lished, and possibly even before this one reaches a considerable portion of its readers, war with Spain will have been declared or all immediate danger of euch a struggle will have passed. The tension of the past few weeks has been tremendous. The patience and forbear ance of Congress and of the people has been remarkable under the most trying circumstance?, and upon the president and bis immediate advisers has rested a burden of anxiety and responsibility which has had no parallel since the dark days preceding the civil war. The country has not lacked for exhibi tions of pyrotechnic oratory both in and out of Congress, or for warlike out bursts from journals whose chief mis sion seems to be to inflame the public mind regardless of consequences. But on the whole the government and the country generally has given to the world an exhibition of patience and conservatism of the highest order, coupled with a degree of firmness and dignity which has challenged the re spect and |admiration of old world na tions which are seldom inclined to praise anything connected with the ad ministration of government in the United States. The genus jingo is abroad in the land and his voice is raised for war, but we may well be thankful that the course of events has thus far been dominated by a stronger and worthier influence which makes for peace. This great conservative sentiment was most worthily repre sented in Congress a few days ago by Congressman Johnson, of Indiana, in a just and fearless speech in the course of which he said: "My voice has been and still Is for peace. Whether it be proper or not, I do not atop or care. I am opposed to war, war with its de vastating consequences, war which involves a vast expenditure of public money, which in volves burdens of taxation to be paid by the people, which involves the Issuing of paper money, which involve* a period of wild specula tion; war which, while it affords opportunities for exalted patriotism and heroic devotion to the flag, at the same time ;opens up an oppor tunity for the cormorant, who always preys upon the vitals of the government and seeks to take advantage of its necessity. lam opposed to that condition of affairs which would take away the flower of the American people, which would put women in the garments of mourning, And which would bring to our unwilling ears the voice of the orphan. I would go to war only as a last resort. I woald not sacrifice precious American lives except that our quarrel should be a just one, and the first [gun would bring •very American citizen to the support of his country's flag; that would carry with it the moral support of the civilized world." And James Hamilton Lewis — "Lewis, of Washington, sah!"—(great Caesor!) with his hair and his whiskers parted in the middle and his trouser a nicely creased, had the affrontry to say that the country is suffering from "too much Johnson," and eveu to attempt to make political capital out of the slanderous charge of sensational news papers that the administration pro poses to accept a money indemnity from Spain for the murdered sailors of the Maine. The country is not suffer ing from "too much Johnson," but there is at least one state that is suffer ing from too much Lewis. A fruit cannery seems to be among the possibilities of the near future at Whatcom. The location is one of the best that could be selected in Western Washington and it would seem that there could hardly be a doubt of the success of such an enterprise if con ducted honestly, economically and ef ficiently. Under proper management it could count with safety upon a large supply of all the fruits which are pro duced so abundantly and successfully iv this county. The Islander extends its most cor dial congratulations to Judge Tucker upon his peaceful inauguration, in these troublous times, as postmaster-general of Friday Harbor. It is simply in keeping with his well-known charac teristics that he is neither "puffed up with pride" nor bowed down with the weight of his new honors and responsi bilities. He will do a cash business and will sell stamps, etc., at the same old prices whether singly or in job lots. If James Hamilton Lewis bad re turned from his late invasion of Canada with a halo of glory upon his head and the spoils of victory in his well-gloved hands he might possibly have been constituted a committee of one to pacify both Spain and Cuba. But James didn't come back that way. Thr time has passed when an set tlement of the Cuban trouble can be effected with the approval of this coun try that does not involve the absolute Independence ■, of Cuba from Spanish '$ rule. -• " '-'•"••- •■ *>.<:: >;; : Thb press dispatches report a shock ing occurrence in Ban Francisco last Thursday.

The mass of the country people, the vast majority of the inhabitants of Spain, would never vote at all of their own free will. In the towns there are those who take, as far as writing and speaking go, a lively interest in politics, but with them it evaporates in words. Time was when there were two great governing forces at work in Spain— those two great mediaeval powers which a barbarous people can realize— the king and the church. Today they are not destroyed, but divided against themselves, or against one another. The old royalist sentiment is split be tween the ruling dynasty and the Car lists. The church sympathizes in its heart with the lost cause. Therefore it is kept at arm's length by the victor. It can intrigue, it can worry a Dar winian professor out of his chair, but it cannot govern. There is no govern ing class in Spain. The aristoracy destroyed its own power centuries ago, when it refused to pay taxes because ifr* rendered military service, and allowed itself to be extruded from the Cortes which met to vote the taxes. A strong ruling line might havesupplied the coun try with a vigorous despotism. But the air of Spain has been fatal to its dy nasties. The Hapsburgs ended with an idiot. The Bourbons have sunk to cretinism.—Black wood's Magazine. Beamtr I* Blood Deep. Clean blood means a clean skin. No beauty without it.
