Greeiev. THE ANNEXATION SCHEME A few days ago Senator promised the Democratic senators who oppose the annexation of Hawaii that, if the bond bill was not delayed, the Hawaiian question would 20 over to the next session, it now appears that he will not be able to redeem his promise. The Newlands resolution has already paaaed the House and is now under con- sideration in the Senate. Senator White aiH others will oppose it, and there are evidences that one of the moat desper- ate battles in the history of that body will be foufht. Senator White is a man of wonderful resources and there is DO doubt that he will exhaust every parliamentary obstruction to resist passage. In the meantime the annexation lobby is working with an energy that seems to have been born of desperation. They are accusing all who oppose ation of working in the interest ..i the sugar trust, when, as a matter 01 fact, the annexation lobby is principally made up of the sugar trust. There ie not a member of the Senate who WBP involved io the sugar trust scandal couple of years ago who is not tcxL'y ardently in faror of annexation. Even California papers have been Mr. Oxaard and accusing him of beine a member of the sugar trust. Mr. Ox nard a of the Beet Growf rs' Association. He has two large factories in the State, lie is engaged in develop- ing an industry that is of the (jreateet importance to California. His intercuts diametrically opfosed to 01 the sugar trust. He opposes annexation because he believes that if it is con- summated the Bupar beet industry of the State will be greatly damaged nnd, possibly, hopelesely injured. Claus Spreckels and Mr. Oxnard have more money invested in California industries than any other two men in the State. It is ridiculous to assume that they are not influenced by honest motives in their opposition to a scheme which will bring disaster to one of California's in- dustries. Thii persistent attempt to promul- gate a falsehood with intent to appeal to popular aversion to the sugar trust that the annexationists do not credit the people with ordinary intelli- gence. The beel-frrowing interests ftre identical with ot the truit, and no sophistry that may be em- ployed can convince the people of it. There is no patriotism or humanity be- hind this annexation scheme. The are purely eelfiah. The President is so anxious about this that it is said he is using his patronage to influence votes. He has even threat- ened that if the resolution is not adopted he will seine Ihe islands as it military necessity. A Democratic who is bitterly opposed lo an- Miation denies that the President, has i the power to seize ttio isUu or ,lhat Congress uooevsses the authority to an iiex them to the United Stated 'by an exparte proceeding like the Newlan resolution. But in these days, when every new is a vtep toward ii perialisoi, aud when the temper of the people see me to be in favor of a system of colonies and dependencies, precedents do not count for much, the founders ot the govern meat are unerringly referreu to as men incapable of formulating a Hystwna of government that would meet the exigencies of the present situation. It is therefore probable that annexation will be consummated before Congress adjourned. Since we have entered upon a cam- paign of conquest and territorial exten- sion, it really makes but little ence about the fate of the resolution. MllliotiH Given Away. It is certainly uratitying to the publiu to know of one concern in the land that is not afraid to be generous to the needy nnd suffering. The proprietors of Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs and Colds have given away over ten million trial bottles of this great medicine nnd have the satisfac- tion of knowing it has absolutely cured thousands of hopeless cases. Asthma, bronchitis, hoarseness, and all diseases of the throat, chest and lungs are surely cured by it. Call on W. H. Lawson, druggist, and zet a trial bottle free; reg- ular sizes 50c and Every bottle guaranteed, or price refunded. UreudfuUy Nervoua.
