If the United States annexes the
Hawaiian islands it will add to its
possessions a country that in one re
spect at least is more civilized than it
self Hawaii has insuccessful opera
tion a postal savings bank system
There is on deposit with the postal
bank about 1000000 which is a
pretty good showing for dv country of
100000 population mostly illiterate
natives aud foreign laborers
If annexation of the islands were to
carry with it the extension to this
country of the postal savings bank
system in operation there would be a
strong argument for annexation
