Hobson hero worship is growing
tiresome to sensible people: and if
Lieutenont Hobson is the cool, level
headed Daval officer he seems, it
must be palling upon him. His
work ia sinking the Merrimac was
as daring and dashing as anything in
naval history. It was admirably
planned and coolly executed: but
when all this, and more, has been
said, the fact remains that results
show the danger was not so great as
that faced by our ga'Iant soldiers
who charged the Spanish entrench
ments at Santiago. '
The sinking of fthe Merrimac, as
events have since unfolded, had no
beat ing on the campaign at Santiago.
The wrecked vessel did not block
the channel, and it was fortunate for
the United States that it did not,
since the failure to "drive the cork"
enabled Cervera to run his squadron
out of the harbor, and Schley to
pounce upon and destroy ifc.
Concentration of the country's
hero worship on Hobson is apt to
exert a bad influence in more ways
than one. It is unjust to thousands
of other brave and patriotic men
who have been as daring and self
sacrificial as Hobson, and whose cour
ageous exertions have brought im
portant 'results. And unless Lieu
tenant Hobson is an extraordinary
young man, his head is in danger of
being tuined by all this applause
and hero worship. Enduring great
ness never comes to man without
some accom pairing rebuffs. Uni
versal applause is a delightful
draught, but it is poor stuff upon
which to sustain true greatness and
heroism. If 3'oung men are ever to
develop iuto intellectual and moral
giants, their treed of praise must be
mixed with a considerable portion of
criticism. That was the case with
Washington, Jefferson, JacksonT Lin
coln and Grant; with Bismarck,
with Gladstone, and with every in
dividual whose philosophy or whose
achievements have ever been worth a
THE EASTERN SQUADRON'S
President McKinley now follows
up his announcement of the . mobili
zation of the powerful and terrible
eastern squadron of battleships and
cruisers by causing it to be given
out that he has some work planned
for this squadron just as soon as the
preliminaries of peace are settled.
This work is said to be encouraging
the sultan to keep his promise to pay
the long-owing American claims.
To get into the eastern Mediter
ranean our squudron must pass and
even touch the coasts of Spain. And
while cruising in the Mediterranean
it will at no time be so far from
Spain that the Spanish people will be
able' to forget that it is "hansinsr
.around," readj to assist in the peace
negotiations. The Spaniards - will
understand that its business at Con
stantinople will never be so pressing
that it could not respond instantly
to a call for its presence at Barcelona
Spain is too old a dog for any one
to have much confidence in her abil
ity to leorn the new and strange
tricks of straightforwardness and
promptness. She needs constant
watching and jogging. And it is
clear that Mr. McKinley is aware of
the tact and is resolved that she shall
not recover by diplomatic dalliance
ny part of what she has lost by the
Some surprise is expressed at the
indifference shown by Spain to the
welfare of the sailors of the Cervera
"squadron who are imprisoned at
Portsmouth, but th,ere is nothing
surprising about it. According to
all accounts these prisoners are the
best fed ane best-cared-for subjects
that Spain has, and "the -government
is probably unwilling " to spoil their
happiness by bringing them home..
It is claimed that the wheat crop
now being harvested in the Yest
will make this year's yield the larg
est on record in this country. An
early conclusion of the negotiations
with Spain should be insisted on, ss
the ships now engaged in military
transportation will soon be urgently
needed to transport our exports of
food to the less favored countries of
