CUBA AND TURKEY.
The president's message is disap
pointing to more tban the Cubans.
It suggests so much that it suggests
nothing, but resolves itself into an
argument of the case made from both
sides and reaching no, conclusion.
There runs through the whole state
inept of the Cuban affair a sentiment
of ss'mpathy for fuba, and a desire
to at the same time befriend Spain.
It has all the satisfying uncertainty
of that famous explanation "That is
to say it is, or it is not, as the ;ase
may be, provided it isn't." Just
what the country expected of the
president on this subject is hard to
say. The countiy, no doubt, feels
very much as the president does,
and it is one of those cases where it
would have liked the president to
. take some definite stand and point
out a course for it to follow.
It does seem outrageous that
Spain is allowed to carry on the war
against the Cubans in the inhuman
manner in which it does, and there
is a universal desire that something
be , done to put a stop to it. The
American mind turns sick at the
brutal butchery of defenseless women
and children, and much as the people
of this country would deprecate a
war with Spain, much as they would
dislike to see this government inter
fere in the affrirs of Spain, it is un
doubtedly true that a vigorous pol
icy of interference, suggested by the
president, would have met with a
response that would have astonished
both president and people, and would
Lave endeared him -to the people as
no other act could have done. His
course may be best, but it is surely
Anent the Turkish question his
message is much more satisfactory.
ne expresses deep sympathy with
the Armenians, but points out in a
few brief sentences that America
cannot interfere. In this connection
be says: : t
"Our efforts in this direction will
not be relaxed, but the deep feeling
and sympathy that have been raised
' among our people ought not to so far
bund their reason and judgment as
to lead them to demand impossible
things. The outbreaks of blind fury
which lead to murder and pillage in
Turkey occur suddenly and without
notice, and an attempt on our part
to force such a hostile presence there
as might be effective for prevention
or protection would not only be re
sisted by the Ottoman government,
but would be regarded as an inter
ruption of their plans by the great
nations who assert their exclusive
right to intervene"in their own time
and "method for the security of life
and property in Turkey.
"1 do not believe that the present
somber prcspect in Turkey will be
long permitted to offend the sight of
Christendom. It so mars the humane
and enlightened civilization that be
longs to the close of the J 9th century
that it seems hardly possible that the
earnest demand of good people
throughout the Christian world for
its corrective treatment will remain
And' this probably covers the casa
as nearly as it can be done. Much
as we may sympathize with the Ar
menians, the converse of the Monroe
doctrine would prevent us interfering
in Turkey. .
Wyatt Earp has come suddenly.
ihio prominence on accoant of his
decision in the Fitzsimmonsbarkey
prize fight. We know nothing about
the fightj but we know Wyatt Earp,
and therefore believe implicitly that
his decision in that contest was cor-
rect. Earp has been known as a bad
man, handy vith his gun, and as a
participant in several bloody en
counters. . The two latter statements
are true, and yet those who know hjs
career would hesitate long before
admitting he was wrong. He fought
to the death, but we have always be
lieved he fought in a just cause. At

more give an unfair decision in a
sporting matter than our supreme
court would in a matter before it.
