The Official Paper of San Jnan County.
THURSDAY. 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. -• " '-'•"••- •■ *>.<:: >;; :

Parties in Spain.
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.

HOW TO FIND OUT.
Fill a bottle or common glass with urine
and let it stand twenty-four hours; a sedi
ment or settling indicates an unhealthy
condition oi the kidneys. When urine
stains linen it is evidence of kidney troub
le. Too frequent desire to urinate or pain
in the back, is also convincing proof that
the kidneys and bladder are out of order.
WHAT TO DO.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills
every wish in relieving pain in the back,
kidneys, liver, blader and every part of
the urinay passage It corrects inability
to hold urine and scalding pain in passing
it. or bad effects following use of liquor,
wine or beer, and overcomes that un
pleasant necessity of being compelled to
get up many times during the night to
urinate. The mild and the extraordinary
effect of Swam-Root is soon realized. It
stands the highest for its wonderful cures
of the most distressing cases. If you need
a medicine you should have the best.

The intense itching and smarting, inci

by applying Chamberlain's Eye and

have been permanently cured by it. It
is equally efficient for itching piles and
a favorite remedy for sore nipples,
