BASIN OF THE PACIFIC.
Before our war with Spain Amer
ican interests in the Pacific was con
lined to the slope. Now it covers
what is called the . basin. Every
country which, from a maritime
point of view, belongs to the Pacific,
rather than to the Atlantic, is in
cluded in this basin.
More than ODe-balf the total popu
lation is to be found in the Pacific
urea. Pacific North America ha?
.11,2000,000 souls; Pacific Central
America, 18,800,000, and Pacific
South America, 10,000,000. These
30,000,000 Pacific Americans are
distributed from Patagonia to Alas
ka. They are few in comparison
with the teeming multitudes on the
other side of the great ocean. Even
the intervening islands have a larger
population. Australasia has a great
deal of energy and enterprise, as well
as territory, but only 5,000,000 popu
lation, or but 1,000,000 more than
Siberia, also a sparsely settled por
tion of the basin. The islands com
paratively near the Asiatic coast
have a population of 46,500,000.
The Dutch East Indies, notably
Java, have most of these; the Philip
pines most of the others. But all
the islands combined barely surpass
in population little Japan, with its
45,000,000. French India and Indo
china have 22,000,000 inhabitants;
Corea, 15,000,000, and Siam and the
Malay peninsula, 8,500,000. These
figures for the Eastern and the in
sular Pacific seem large, as compared
with those of Pacific North America,
vet they dwindle to insignificance as
-compared with British India and the
kindred possessions of Great Britain
in the Eastern Pacific waters. The
total number under British rule
thereabouts is 290,000,000, or almost
one-fifth the total population of the
globe. But all the Indias, British,
French, and Dutch, with Japan added
merely equal in population the
Chinese empire, with its 400,000,000
Such, numerically, is the Pacific
basin, into which, as a dominating
power, the United States entered
with the annexation of Hawaii and
the seizure of the Philippines. It is
impossible to appreciate fully the
grandeur of the opportunity that we
have grasped. A writer in a current
British magazine, in discussing
America's new position, exclaims in
wonder: "What margin remains for
expansion to those splendidly en
dowed states, fronting that enormous
ocean within whose basin my be
counted the major portion of the
population of the world !"
"We can make more than half the
people of the world the patrons of
factories. We can gather into our
bands the ocean-borne commerce of
Asia, Australasia, and all the Ameri
cas. To do both we have only to
hold fast what we have, declaring in
the face of jealous but acquiescent
Europe. "It is ours by right of con
quest, by right of position, by right
of justice, honor, and humanity."
No such prize ever before fell, un
solicited, into the hands of a great
natiou, and none ever will so fall
again. It became ours for the mere
taking; it will remain ours for the
It is likely that . the tear enter
tained by France lest England should
decide to fight, and the fear enter
tained by England lest France should
decide to fight, if continued couch
longer may result in nervous presta
tion on both sides of the channel,
which will be even more disastrous
in the end than a real war.

Three Doctors In Consultation.
From Benjamin Franklin.
"When you are sick, what yon like
best is to be cboeen for a medicine in the
first p'ace; what experience tells you is
best, to be chosen in the second place ;
what reason (i. e.. Theory') Bays is best
is to b3 chosen in the last place. But if
you can get Dr. Inclination, Dr. Ex
perience and Dr. Reason to hold a con
sultation together," they will give you
the best advice that can be taken."
When you have a bad cold Dr. Incli
nation would recommend Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy because it is pleasant
and safe to take. Dr. Experience would
recommend it because it never fails to
effect a speedy and permanent cure.
Dr. Reason would recommend itbecauee

Millions Given Away!
It is certainly gratifying to the public
to know of one concern in the land who
are not afraid to be geuerous to the needy
Rnd suffering. The proprietors of Dr.
King's New Discovery for Consumption,
Caughs and Colde, have given away over
ten million trial bottles of this great
medicine; and have the satisfaction of
knowing it has absolutely cured thous
ands of hopeless cases. Asthma, Bron
chitis, Hoarseness and diseases of the
Throat, Chest and Lanes are surely
cured by it. Call on Blakeley & Hongh
tou, druggists, and get a trial bottle free.
Regular size 50c. and $1. Every bottle
guaranteed, or price refunded. 3
