OUR NEW ISLAND TERRITORY.
"When President McKinley signed
the Newlands resolution a week ago
last evening the Hawaiian islands
became a part of the United States.
The formalities of annexaton will
not change this fact. The president's
action in signing the resolutions was
notifications to the world that the
islands had been annexed.
There are fifteen islands in the
Hawaiian group, having, all told, an
area of 7,629 square miles and a
population of about 80,000. The
largest island of the group, Hawaii,
has an area of 4,875 square miles and
a population ot 17,000. The island
next in size is Maui. This has a
population of about 12,000. The
third island in size is Oahu. This is
about forty mile3 long by twenty
miles broad and has a population of
about 21,000, including Honolulu,
the capital. The fourth island, At
auai or Kauai has an area of 780
square miles and a population ot
4,961. The next in size is Molokai.
This is about forty miles long and
from seven to nine miles broad and
has a population of 2,349. Nihau,
or Oneeow, is about eighteen miles
long and eight miles broad antf has
a population of 233. Rami is twenty
miles long and ten miles broad and
has a population of 348. Kahoolawe
is eleven miles long and eight miles
In addition to these eight islands,
which extend in line, covering a dis
tance of about 450 miles, there is the
island of Palmyra, about 800 miles
south of the main group. This has
an area of about sixty square miles
and is claimed by the Hawaiian gov
ernment. The islands have been
practically occupied by the United
Stales as a coaling station and a rest
ing point for vessels on the way to
the Philippines. The government is
self-supporting and there will be no
special burden to the United States
as an incident of annexation.
There seems to be little doubt that
Cuban insurgents along the shore
fired upon and killed a number of
Spanish sailors who were struggling
in the surf and across the beach in
their efforts to escape from Cervera's
shattered fleet. At first thought this
will strike the average American as
an exhibition of wanton barbarity.
But the average American cannot
put himself in the place of the Cuban
insurgent, nor feel as the Cuban
father, husband or brother feels who
has experienced nothing save evi
dences of Spanish cruelty during the
past three yenrs. There are thous
ands of men in the Cuban army
whose aged fathers and mothers,
whose wives and sisters and children
have been subjected to unspeakable
atrocities at the hands of the Span
iards. These men cannot think of
the nice points involved in the
treatment of a disabled foe. They
have been taught by bitter experi
ence to think only of vengeance.
No quarter has been shown them or
their families, and they are prepared
to give none. Barbarous the attack
upon the unfortunate Spanish sailors
certainly was, but the history of
Cuba for the past three years is a
chapter of barbarities, and if the
insurgents are brutes they have been
brutalized by the representatives of
a nation that lays claim to advanced
It is hinted in telegram3 from
"Washington that Admiral Cervera is
likely to be released on parole from
even nominal imprisonment. Action
of this character on the part of our
government would meet with uni
veraal commendation. If there is a
Spaniard alive whom the United
States can afford to treat with gen
erosity, to say nothing of distinction,
itis Admiral Cervera. Asiie from
the fact that his rank entitles him to
TespCct, his" -bravery merits our ad
miration, and his conduct toward
the crew of the MerrimaC entitles
him to our gratitude.
