iU Mr. A. Humphreys, of Honolulu, the Advertiser's friend
Alkali Ab i", did one thing in the republican convention which
h-is fairlv earned for him the warmest commendations of the
News, and that was to protest against the trailing of judicia

they had a medical officer and would

I never could aseertuin whether
thii was done, as the next day till

At the commandant's office 1

commanding officer of the York town
