Arguments from statistics arc always
misleading and generally become
fallacious when men lose sight of the
history and results of financial systems.
Figures do not lie; it is the manipu
lators behind them who make them un
reliable. The advocates of honest
money in the United States want no
thing better than to meet the self-styled
champions of "cheap money," what
ever that may mean, squarely upon the
issue. They have no fears as to the
result, for they have met these pro
duccrs of poverty beioretime and
have come oft" victors.
The hired supjiortcrs of a debased
silver coinage in Hawaii, who hope to
draw consolation for a bankrupt govern
nient from the statistics and arguments
of the interested advocates of silver in
the United States, would do well to
remember what the silver men of the
West have forgotten, viz : that the gold
men fought the greenback fanaticism
headed by Senator Sherman, in 1868,
and won the day ; that they held their
ground and sustained the country's
credit in 187.1 when Morton, of In
diana, championed the inflation bill
and led the bad currency fat tion ; and
that the friends of honest money are
ready and aggressive in their opposition
to the threatened encroachments upon
the gold in the federal treasury, which
is to be used for paying the obligations
of tlic United States and for the re
demption of greenbacks. The gold
(icoplc of the United States do not in
tend to allow siich encroachments to
be made that gold will be driven from
circulation by a debased currency,
values be overthrown, two standards
be established and a financial and
commercial crisis be made possible.
Heretofore evil effects have not fol
lowed the fanatirism of the soft money
and silver men because the people of the
United States have alwajs succeeded
in squelching their baneful s stems, as
they will ultimately overthrow the pro
posed monetary svstcm of the present
silver maniacs. These fanatical move
ments have always been supported by
an array of alleged facts and figures
which were declared at the time to fur
nish absolute proof that the country's
prosperity and welfare would be
materially advanced if congress would
only coincide anil endorse their entry
schemes and adopt a debased and un
staplc currency which would force the
establishment of false standards and
unreal values, making 85 tents in the
hand of the wage-earner pay him
for a dollar's worth ol labor. Under
the present silver law the United States
Government places the nominal value
of the silver dollar at one hundred
cents. The supposed advantages accru
ing to the people under such a system
are, at best, vague and delusive, since
the gain, if such there be from the
coinaee of a debased currency, is
drawn into the treasury instead of fall
ing into the wxket of the individual.
The main argument upon which the
silvermaniacs relied in 1877 isdoncaway
with in the present issue by the fact
that there is now $200,000,000 in
silver coin in the United States
"largely unused." Kvcn the Chicago
Tribune, that ardent advocate and
stanch supiortcr of the silver bill of
1877, now sees the practical results of
the silver craze, and not only changes
its policy but openly stultifies itself and
its faction by declaring: "If Cleveland
can prevail upon bis party majority in
the house to order the coinage of
silver to cease fin the present, he will
be entitled to the gratitude of the
country, and will V an e.uellent stait
for his administration."
The silver svstem is, in truth, sooner
than its enemies expected, writing Ich
abod over the financial prosperity of the
nation. The vote on the clause which
the late house refused to insert in Un
civil appropriation bill for the suspen
sion of silver coinage lor one vear
proves that xilitical pattica arc not
divided upon the issue, and that the
result vvas brought about by the silver
filibusters during the closing days of
congiess. In the incoming congress a
change of 16 votes will be sufficient to
ovcrthtow the late "catch majority"
which sustained itself only because the
question was not fairly before the
country. When the question comes to
issue the absurd and fallacious nrgu
incuts of the interested and hired sup
porters of a debased coinage, here and
elsewhere, will be refuted line upon
line, lu tlie meantime, it is rather
musing to wjtcli Mr. Macfarlane's
able Honolulu editor in the Advertiser
attcaipt to pull in pieces live .olid and
convincing arguments for honest money
written by Mr. Macfarlane's talented
San Franciscan editor in the Wasp,

In looking up the figure! of value of!
imimrt, for our article on Pork raising
of l.it week our attention was attractetl
to the amount we arc also paving out 1
each s car for corn, an article nearly all
will admit that we should be producing
for ourselves, as there arc a number of
localities on the various islands that
have grown as fine corn as any one
could desire. The writer has seen this
the Kohala district of Hawaii, antl
has heard the assertion of an experi
enced eastern farmer that the yield,
quality, and rapidity of growth came up
to any of his own state. Honolulu
used to be favored with occasional
consignments of excellent corn from
Waialua and from orls on Maui and
Kauai, but we learn of little of similar
produce now 1 l.iiming the attention of
our lountry cousins these days. isow
this is not as it should be. A sure
market can be found here for probably
a million pounds per annum, and at a
figure that would gladden many a
farmer's heart in the corn growing
sections of the United States. The
import value ol whole and cracked corn
last vcar was $9,130,16. That of 1883
was $10,506.98, and for the amount
imported, 608,750 pounds, shows a
fraction under ij cents per pound.
We believe it can be produced here at
a profit at these same figures and by
so doing not only will this amount of
money be saved the country but the
expenses of import and exchange in re
mittance would be saved also.
The following values of importation
of corn whole and cracked and
corn meal for the past few years will
doubtless be of interest to some read
ers, as showing the amount we are,
comparatively speaking, throwing into
the lap of luxurious Uncle bam year
after year :

'I he average showing for the past
five years is $9,912.40, a very comforta
ble sum for any farmer to lay claim to,
and with the increased attention given
to slock of late the amount required is
likely to be more than less. No doubt
there arc obstacles to be met with in
this as in other industries, but none we
believe that are so insurmountable as
to warrant its being neglected alto
gether. In breaking new ground the
cut worm, or poko, is often met with in
some districts, but continual working
over the soil tends to eradicate them.
This difficulty we believe was met with
by wheat and cotton growers in earl)
days, and together with low prices
helped to check the industry. If any
readers of the l'ress have any views on
this or kindred local industry topics we
should be pleased to hear from them
Profit no doubt to some readers will

Elsewhere in this issue is published
a letter of enquiry relative to the possi
bility of finding capitalists willing to
establish a paper mill at these islands.
The assertion has often been made that
there is ample paper making stock
available here, which is doubtless true
for many of the grades imported and
used in these islands. The principal
material available is the marsh tulcs
and begasse, or trash from the cane
mills. The banana plant is also thought
to possess qualities for excellent paper
making, while a number of native trees
that furnished bark for tapa making
would serve for fine grades. This,
however, would be perhaps difficult
and expensive to obtain, and possibly
quite limited. Hut there is a large
amount of waste paper and old rags
that could be utilized almost for the
gathering which now go to waste. We
have no data at hand relative to the
necessary cost lor a plant of paper
makin,; machinery, but doubtless our
correspondent can give the needed
information on this and other xmicii
lars incident thereto, such as size and
cost of building and number of hands
required. The value of importation of
paper for 1883 was; writing $5,902.55,
printing $6,(21.28 and wrapping
$6,37.1.55, makint: a total for the year
of $i8,6pS.oS. For 1883 the total
value of importations was $17,284,49,
divided 33 follows, viz.: writing paper
$5,240.47, printing paper $5,240.47,
and wrapping paper $6,732.44. For
1884 these importations increased to
$20,862.12 in value, divided as follows;
wrapping $9,054.00, printing $6,296.28
and writing $5,511.84. We present
these facts and figures (or the benefit
of those desirous of examining into the
project, and repeat the belief expressed
in the Annual that "surely with this
annual consumption of paper there
might be some steps taken toward
establishing a paper mill here."
It is a notorious fact that the gold
standard war. maintained in the state of
California during the years of greenback
depreciation. The gold standard was
enforced by the united action of the
business men of California in spite of
the financial condition of affairs in the
eastern states ; and the man who paid
his debts with a depreciated bgaltender
lost both standing and credit in a btate
which had determined to bridge the
financial disasters which followed the
war by retaining a gold standard. It is
pleasing to see Mr. Macfarlane's San
Francisco Wasp strongly advocating a
financial system which at that time
exempt the entire Pacific Coast from
general degression and bankruptcy,
Hawaii may be redeemed in the same

The Friend has incurred the dis-
pleasure of the Court Journal because
the ne editors have been foolhardy
enough, forsooth! to advocate good
Kovcrnmcnt and honest money. In
other words "The Friend as a labor of
love" has become, under its new-
management "a labor" for truth, hon
esty and justice as well. He it known
ami remembered that it is the duty of
every journal whether religious or sc
cilar to guard the interests of the
wop!" on all questions of morality and
government, and that it becomes
especially a duty when political issues,
raised by the acts of an unscrupulous
and designing administration, threaten
the very existence of our island pros
perity. The principle of the Friend's
editorial as well as the facts staled
therein cannot be controverted by the
emissaries of the government for the
very cogent and aggravating reason that
the principle has been proven right and
the facts have been firmly established
for the people of Hawaii through
practical experiences which have been
continually emphasized and embittered
by the acts and dealings of a "bought
and sold" government.
A little over a month ago the United
States man of-war Wnchuselt was or
dered by cable to proceed at once to
Guayaquil river and inquire into the
outrages sustained by a Mr. Santos, an
American citizen. The demand by the
United States consul mat Mr Santos
be placed on trial was ignored by the
llahia military authorities who held him
to be an Ecuadorian. Orders were
then cabled from Washington for the
immediate release of the prisoner
which were officially obeyed. The ar
rest was made by the order of Colonel
Flores who once before overstepped
his authority by cancelling the patent
of the United States vice-consul at
liahia. It is to be hoped the old
American promptness in protecting her
citizens which has almost been lost
sight of during late years will be revived
under the new administration.
The Advertiser in its desire to attain
to an eminence at the expense of our
veracity goes a long way round " Robin
Hood's barn" to maintain its assertion
of faithfully presenting the opinions of
all persons interviewed on the Privy
Council's liquor license action. Now
it would be very unkind in us to doubt
their intention so to do after all the
pains it has taken, liut when it de
manded an instance of failure to re
cord the views of any citizen, and we
gave it, it is unfair to try andix the lie
on us. From the Advertiser's ground
they are evidently correct, as the party
referred to did not wish to be inter
viewed, but we maintain we were not
false in the assertion we made, though
probably in error in saying they dared
not publish it We were going to say it
dare publish anything, but of this let
time itself tell.

Kuitor Svrumuv Pur.ss-.f-r Vour
correspondent on silk culture well deserves the
(harks of the community for his earnest en
deavors to iKipulari-e this future gem of
Hawaiian agriculture, and I am pleased to
hear he agrees with me on some points, though
he does not agree on others, no more than I
ever can accept as absolute authorities certain
of his utterances. Hut as, In all things, there
must be room for honest divergencies of
opinion, I would never have thought of dis
cussing any one of Ms asvertlons, had he not
found it proper in his list letter (Saturday
Press, March joth) to take me lo task (poor
me I) and pretend lo make a clean sweep of
my arguments In the Ilultcttn (which did not
concern him), intimating plainly that, outside
of what is done in Italy and 1 ranee (and
mrlhinks that this constitutes a not iniutisider
able portion of the silk-growing world), my
experience can be of no avail.
1st. He savs that many of my arguments (?)
ate only tethnutl ; but pray, what is all thai
he has written himself, if not purely technical,
since himself, no more than mvself, has ever
Hied sericicullure here ?
and. If mj "arguments cannot, in any
plate (I) apply to the question in these
islands," ma not the same exactly be said of
all his own assertions, until experience has
settled the matter ?
3rd. About the Bemlyx Kitini, I know
that its silk Is not so valuable as the Bomlyx
morfs, and I said so, though I consider his
information on the matter rather antiquated,
hut, at any rate, I cannot see wherein it will
help his endeavors in favor of this last to dis
parage uselessly the other, whose advantages
would be that the necessary plant is now grow
ing wild on thousands of acres of our lands,
where leaves could be procured for nothing,
thus utilizing both plants and lands now waste.
4U1. Concerning the growth of the mulberry
tree, having already indirectly answered in the
Ilullctin, I shall only say that whether in
tropical or other climates the mulberry is a
ilr.u gnmtr, as all long-lived trees must be ;
and I have now the practical authority of
several reliable men that four-years-old trees
here arc still only shrubs, which according to
the textual words of one of my friends, a well
known agriculturist would not give enough
leaves to feed one worm during one week,
Further, vour correspondent forgets, when
talking of " tropical " climate, that here it is
far from being a real tropical or even
absolute semi-tropical climate, and that our
vegetation is not, after all, so very different
from what it is, say in southern Italy, to which
he attributes the "slow growth of cold
climates." There, as well as here, flourish
the vine, the fig,, orange and olive trees, and
they don't appear lo grow here notably faster
than there: why then expect that the mulberry
tree will be an exception just to please your
correspondent's sanguine impatience? And do
his arguments apply better than mine to the
localized question ?
6th. Now, alwut his reference to trees at
Stockton, which, "mere thruis a ftw )tars
age (a singular confession, anvnow)arc now
grown-up giants, in fact, like "full-grown
kukui trees." First, I am afraid he has never
seen "full-grown" kukuis, from being bold
enough to compare the modest mulberry to
his lofty member of the Kauai forests;
secondly, perhaps, however, the Stockton
trees were not mulberry trees at all, but be
longed to some other species of the Artocarperc
family; thirdly, if really mulberry trees, then
from those very dimensions so incompatible
with the ordinary humble habits of the white
mulberry, they must evidently have been
black mulberries, the very kind which he him
self proclaims the least fit, for silk worms, and
from which it would consequently be puerile
to deduce any arguinerjta)ion ; fourthly, the
argument itself of the quoted growth, in a
foreign land, whatever the trees may have
bt.cn, is indeed a very poor cne for applying to
this country, for then I hav e as much right to
believe my own experience based on secular
knowledge than to be compelled to adopt his
authority derived from such a distant locality ;
they both bear the same relation to the pro
bable. capabilities of this country.
7lh. Finally, the question of sexes in trees
I am sorry to have to utter a flat contradiction,
but I am backed by all real authorities must
affect the industry of cocoons here as well as
elsewhere, for the simple reason that the
quality of the foliage and its adaptation to the
silk worm's wants differ according to sex and
8th. I do not wish to follow your corrcs-
pondents example and discuss lor mere
pleasure of argumentation any of his asser
tions outside of what I have done in self-
defense, but I feel greatly interested to know
what kiml of Uombyx it is, thai gives only
t:,ooo worms to an ounce of eggs, and yet
manages to produce 150 pounds of cocoons ? I
should like to send any amount of those eggs
to my fiiends in Europe, who would, indeed,
be only too happy to save their leaves on so
small a number of worms with the prospective
of such a large amount of silk ! Why, they
would, ipso facto, double their production,
for, the finest results they have ever obtained,
even with the fine large old European
varieties, were 150 pounds from, at least,
50,000 worms ; and more often, in an ordinary
healthy "education," it takes nearly 45,000
worms to produce only 100 pounds of cocoons.
9th. Now, about the Idea of making the
ladies, growers, "meet socially" 10 reel their
silk! This is, indeed, a new Improvement ; I
don't know whether it be patented or whether
it is only a recent arcadian dream; at any
rati-, the industrious peasant women of Italy
and France, who attend to silk-raising and are
tager to do as much as possible of it with their
own hands, will feel much obliged for the
notion, unless, after trying it once, they give
up in disgust even the worm-raising, a result
which I would deeply regret to see here arise
from fancy teachings.
Consequently, to finish, I shall venture, with
what little authority has been letl to my utter
ances, to give one more word of caution to the
ladies who are apparently going to embark
into the speculation. Ily all means sow, plant
and grow mulberry trees wherever it can be
done. Try to raise good worms and eventually
to produce eggs, but feel perfectly satisfied if
you can sell advantageously your cocoons
without running the risk of depreciating your
whole produce by amateur reeling, when In
the obi silk-growing countries, it has taken
years, in the special "filatures," to invent
proper instruments and to form good reelers
(or obtaining the perfect and systematic recline
icquircd for the modern fabrics of silk goods. 4
Ana nerc, as my argument on tne suDject
might be again called, too European, I
shall Protect mjsclf with a literal quotation
from the American Farm Ilook) will this also
lie discarded and conveniently swept away
This well-informed work, after giving designs
of the complicated but most approved 1'ie-
montese and rrench reels, continues Ihusi
"A simple reel, however, may be made by
any uieclunic, that will answer the purpose
for maiinc Umutlit lilt, but tut if designated
for tale; the reeling for market Is a vtiy niti
operation winch, requires a goi reel runt an
ixptntHctJ reeicr. , .
Would it lie that your correspondent has
mixed up the reeling of silk with the spinning
of wool, hemti or cotton ? There was a time
when Queen llerlha tueU to spin with her own
royal hands, but this ha become too archaic for
our prosaic days, and, at any rate, your worthy
correspondent will, perhaps, now modestly
admit that he Is not the only authority in the
woriu even on uik maucrc. However, i
do not begrudge tu proclaim that, outside
of his sanguine but batardoua assertions
about country in which he has no
more experience than any other one of us, be
evidently has had considerable practice in the
mattct somewhere, antl that the enlistment of
bis (entices here will undoubtedly be a great
help towardi miking of silk culture, what we
alt want it to be "A decided suece,"

The Honolulu Yacht and Hoal Club held
their Hist annual regatta in the hsrlnr during
the afternoon of March aSth. The day was
clear and blight ami the course was smooth.
The II. Y. A II. C. bojs had cleared and
arranged the wharf of the Inter-Island Steam
Navigation Company to receive invited guests,
white the Koval Hawaiian Hand was placed
thereon to abridge the "waits" with a "pleas
ant noise." It proved a right metric day for
everybody and the vessels along the wharves
were as gaily bedecked with bunting as the
natives were with "loud" bandana handker
chiefs ami sweet breathable Icis, 1 he judges
who were sedate and capable consisted of
Captains II, Mist, K. N,, Cousins,and Fuller.
The races were to begin at one o'clock sharp,
but I'rocrastination that vcritaRe pick-pocket
of Time succeeded in slipping away with thirty
minutes before the racine canoes started the
day's sport. This was a sailing race over I,'
miles course for the prire club medal. The
entries were the Mlgnon sailed by F. Whitney,
the I'leur de Lis, sailed by W. I., Wilcox and
the Tippecanoe, sailed by Sanford 11. Dole.
The canoes got an even start but were hind
ered by the lines of the whaler John Carver
which was getting ready for sea at Wllder's
wlnrf. After getting clear the Fleur de Ms
anil Mlgnon continued on their course but the
Tippecanoe was withdrawn. The two canoes
sailed a close race, the Metir de Lis winning.
Time 26 minutes. The betting on the Myrtle
boys was about two to one throughout the races
although some bets were laid even up by over
confident friends of the II. Y. & II. C. boys.
There vvas considerable interest and excite
ment shown when the junior crews of the two
clubs came to the scratch. The Myrtle Club's
boat Stranger was pulled by Carter, stroke,
and Messrs. Whitney, Monsarrat, McUryde,
Ilrown, Torbert, and Love coxswain, and the
II. Y. & II. Club's boat Mliuokalani by Lowe,
stroke, Messrs. Thurston, Macfarlane, Wode
house, Dimond, Stillman, and Whitney cox
swain. A good start was obtained but it was
evident from the first that the Stranger would
take the race which she did by nearly twelve
lengths in 16 minutes and 19 seconds. The
paddling race for canoes of the II. Y. & 11. C.
distance of a mile, was won by Coquette
paddled by Mr. E. Lowe. The Tippecanoe
left the course about half way over and was
loudly cheered by the crowd when she was
brought in by Mr. S. I). Dole some 20 minutes
after the race was over a wag remarked that
it was the first time any one ever knew a law
yer to get left. The fourth race which was for
,Yi miles was contested by the senior crews of
the Myrtle, II. Y. & II. and Iolani Clubs.
There had been considerable talk, much specu
lation and some betting previous to the race,
the favorites being the Myrtle boys as usual.
The boats ond crews were as follows : the
Myrtle Club entered the Stranger, manned by
llranch, stroke, Lucas, Wnndenbcrg, I'urdy,
Lyle, Robinson, and Torbert coxswain. The
Honolulu Club entered their new boat the No
Name, manned by Dow sett, Jr., stroke, Wod
house, Morse, Markham, Holt, Jr., Whitney,
Jr., and Seeley coxswain. The King's crew
entered the l'oomaikelani, manned by Kalino,
stroke, Kakc, Niolo, Kaulahao, Ku, Kalua
bine, and Ulukou coxswain. The boats were
a long time getting away but when they at last
took the waler the No Name was outside, the
Stranger in the center and the I'omaikalani
inside. Two of the judges went out on the
Alert and followed the boats. The Poomaike
lani crew took the lead pulling a stroke which
would have won the race if they could have
kept it up. At the spar buoy the Stranger
was ahead, the No Name second, and the Poo
maikclani in the rear continually losing
"ground, water and wind." From the spar to
the bell buoy and thence home the race between
theStrangerand No Namcwasjctoscly contested,
the Honolulu boys showing up well for a new
club and displaying staying qualities that will
give the Myrtle's trouble in the future. From
the spar buoy home the Honolulu's boat gave
the Stranger all she could do, and while passing
the Inter-island vvharfthe NoNamemadeaspurt
gaining half a length and momentarily raising
the hopes of her backers ; but it was too late
the Stranger passed the line in 23:30 winning
the race, which was not decided by the judges,
however, until the afternoon of March 31st,
ow ing to a claim of foul entered by the cox
swain of the No Name. After this race most
of the spectators went home before the single
scull race and a four oared race between the
Honolulu and Iolani rrews came off. In the
latter race the, Honolulu boys won easily and
the sports were closed by half-past five.
The iSonthlu Concert.
The regular monthly missionary concerts of
the Uethel and Fort Street churches took place
last Wednesday evening. The subject at the
Uethel being Micronesia was a familiar one to
all present, and was rendered all the more inter
csting from the use of the map and a large
painting of one of the atols of the Marshall
Island group. Miss Andrews explained the
map and Captain Dray oflheMoining Star gave
a brief sketch of the peculiarities of the islands
and Islanders of the different groups, manners,
customs and conditions. Kcv. A. O. Forbes
summarised the progress of mission work since
its organization In 1852, paying glowing trib
utes to the woik of Hawaiian missionaries as
did Captain llray and of the promising work
being done through the training school at
Kusaie. The work of the different Morning
Stars was referred to and the present one
spoken of as admirably fitted for the service
required of her, and in which she will be found
to be none too large, especially as the field of
work is being extended as teachers and mis
sionaries are obtained in answer to the general
call among these islands of the sea for the
gospel news of salvation.
At the Fori Street church the subject was
Africa. Mi. J. S. Emerson presented a care
fully prepared and Interesting paper on the State
of Congo, followed by brief remarks from Chief
Justice Judd and others.

Editor Smith returned last Sunday
for a breath of metropolis air and took
his ad-interims bv .surprise. He was
weighted with many facts and much in
formation relating to Hawaii, tmd over
flowing with delight at the country.
He was relieved of his surplus MSS,
and tcturncd on Wednesday by the
W. G. Hall to resume his tour of the
Hcv. Dr. Happer preached at the Chinese
Church last Sunday morning. At the close
of the service, three children were baptized,
five persons admitted to membership on pro
fession of faith, and four by certificate from
the churches. Dr. I tapper has seen enough of
the Christaln work going on here In behalf of
the Chinese to be impressed with Its impor
tance, and is more than ever desirous lhal
this community should be roused to increased
interest and sympathy in pushing forward the
Chiistiinlzatlon of the Chinese.
Oahu College and I'unahou Preparatory
School closed yesterday afternoon for the
spring vacation of two weeks. The nln
prevented a large attendance at the closing
cxerclves. The pupils appeared exceedingly
welt In the recitations. Discipline seems to
have been maintained and enthusiasm excited
by keeping the scholars constantly at work ;
and the rapid progress made does not seem to
have interfered at alt with the thoroughness of
the work done.
Editor Saturday I'rrss Sir: The
88th bitthday of Emperor William I, was well
remembered by all German gentlemen at Ele
elc 1'Iantation. In the morning, the first we
saw was the "black, white and red," hoisted
upon the flag post standing in front of Mr.
Drcicr's residence. This was done by Mrs.
Emma Drcicr. Soon after breakfast every
one of us received an invitation for a supper
party, which we joined altogether. At 4
o'clock 1'. M., every one could be seen in his
Sunday afternoon suit on the front verandah
ol Mr. Drcicr s residence, and we all were
welcomed by Mn"Drcier and several ladies,
who were present already. A very splendid
supper vvas served by Mrs, and Miss Drcicr,

served by Miss Dreier, and the Ycst of the
evening was spent in talking, with piano play
ing by Mrs. Dreier and Mrs. George Tit comb.

A planter was once asked why he did not
tike in a newspaper. "Ilccausc," said he,
"my father, when he died, left me a good
many newspapers and I have not read them
all through Jet." The planter, of the present
day, however, is too intelligent to act thus
stupidly. Consequently, by reading the ad
vertiscments, he learns that the Pacific Hard
ware Co., No. 74 and 76 Fort street, arc con
stantly receiving new importations and carry
one of the largest stocks of goods in their line
to be found on these islands, which they offer
at the lovxit market rales.
" Why don't you give us a little Greek and
Latin occasionally?" asked a country deacon
of a new minister. " Why, do you understand
those languages?" was asked. "No, but we
pay for the best, and we ought to have it."
Now, if this deacon also wants the best
Mify food he should go to II. E. Mclntire &
Uro, Fort street, corner of King, and purchase
a supply of their fine groceries and provisions
especially one of those Westphalia hams im
ported direct from Germany by steamer and
rail, not forgetting an assortment of their fresh
canned goods and fresh roasted and ground
coffees, as well as teas and the thousand and
one other articles in their line.
Mr. N. S. Sachs, at the popular millinery
house at No. 104 Fort street, invites' particular
attention to a large imixutation of new
goods just received, consisting, in part, of full
lines of colored straws, and horse-shoe bon
nets, in black, white, and assorted colors, real
ostrich-plumes, in great variety, velvets,
plushes and satins, of "all shades, to
gether with a very complete stock of ladies'
and children's hoisery and underwear, among
which will be found children's full regular
made hose, all sizes, in assorted colors and
patterns, offered at the uniform price of 25
cents per pair, guaranteed to be of best quality
and worth 50 cents to 75 cents per pair. Also
a special lot of ladies' straw hats, assorted
colors, at one dollar.
Many of our residents here, arc doubtless,
familiar with the patent adjustable swing which
Is In such general use In the parks and other
public places, schools, residences, etc, through
out the United States. This swing is arranged
to securely seat four persons in n carriage box,
facing each other, and is propelled by the
weight and position of the occupants, who can
easily regulate the movemmt of the swing to
any degree of momentum desired so as to
almost approximate perpetual motion. Mr. E.
E. Mayhcw, carpenter, at No. 86, Hotel street,
has recently introduced the swing to the resi
dents of these islands and is now prepared to
promptly fill all orders for same. A model of
his swing can be seen at his shop, and it, also
can be personally tested at the residences of
Messrs. J. II. Pat), II. F, Dillingham, E. C.
McCandlcss, and at the Casino. It would be
difficult to find any article more conducive to
the pleasure and happiness of our families than
one of these swings, which are fuinished by
Mr. Ma) hew at a very reasonable price.
"Ma, lend mc a pencil; I want to draw
some ladies." " Draw some ladies t Why,
Johnny, this is Sunday." "Well, I'll draw
