I that even man is rich. Stating
every man owns all the wealth lie
ave m sen: an. who always wan Is more than he can keep, controverts
' this proposition, but a brief analysis will show, its truth. There
, are. but a few comparatively of the whole number of people on the
: Islands who are very wealthy, and tl.ey are the ones only who are
able to keep and control large amounts of property. There are
some men in Wailuku tt day who are' not millionaires, simply be
cause Iheir capacities do not lit, them for that' contWl ion, rather
than because the opportunity has not been within their grasp. The
downward gradation is gradual and we have with us the thousand
dollar meu, the hundred dollar men, the five dollar men, the dollar
men, and also tnose who are chronically broke Invest any one of
'any class above with more than his uoiinal amount, and he will
' soon reduce himself to his normal level. Test those whom' you
Itn'oAV with this theory, and you will be startled to realized how true:
it is. Then., since we are all as rich as possible, let us be as happy

HI .Judge (.5 car was in the right of it when ho recently denounced
the practice. of breaking into houses and searching the persons of
the occupants without the formality of a search warrant. True,
the stolen properly was in the case reierred to, found on the per
sons of the Poito U'cans searched, but that does not justify enter
ing a house without a search warrant, which, in that particular
instance, could easily have been obtained. If the judges would
persistently refuse to admit such evidence, it would teach those
who wish to prevent or detect crime on the Islands,- that there i.
a' wrong as well us it t ight way to go about the matter.
lg British generalship has been put to a severe test during the
present Boer war, and the fact has developed that John Bull dis
plays an unexpected amount of adaptibility.- Lord Kitchener's
recant corralling of the Boer block house line is a brilliant illus
tration of the point. The British surrounded the Boers with lire
and steel along a line of fifty miles, and with barbed wire fences and
innumerable svarch-lights. Again and again t "e charging Boers
were driven back, until they finally hit upon the scheme of. stam
peding a band of cattle throught the British lines, among which,
riding low, De Wet and a few of his men escaped.

Of all tho absurd blunders which Wilcox has perpetrated in
congress, the mosfegregious is his attempt to tinker with the
schools of the Islands. There was pevhaps some excuse for his
trying to Secure a county government bill, and while he was about
,' it, he might also have introduced

simply no use talking, the Ilawaiians and haoles must, unite and
seed a, lit representative to the

2i The fact that the population
in racial lines causes tome to take a gljomy view of the future of
Ilawaii. Experience has proven often in the past that we really
have nothing to fear. The genius of self government, developed un
der the American theory of republican government, will permeate
tho Islands with virile force, and
lands will in time be developed a strong, self reliant and united citi
zenship, fully qualified to take and wisely hold the reins of local
government, and at the same time properly direct progress a
long industrial lines.
fV While the News has, in the interests of temperance, unhes-
itatingly advocated the establishment of a reasonable number of
saloonsin order to stop swipe'orgies, illicit liquor traffic and other
evils which necessarily spring from any attempt to unduly dam
up and repress men's natural appetites, still the present govern
ment is going top far in the matter, apparently for the sordid
motive of increasing tax revenues rather than properly regulating
the liquor traffic. Good will come of this evil, however, and lead
the citizens to adopt i modified
The Chinoso Exclusion iriuestion is berinninr n
inieresung piiase jn v ssnmgion. The commercial bodies of San
Francisco have at length found courage to give utterance to a mild
disclaimer of exclusion, and thej will find a larce following among
the commercial and agricultural interests a! California. In Wash
ington, a strong opposition to exclusion, led by able men is being
urged, and if at this juncturo Hawaii had a delegate who was conT
petent.it is possible that Chinese laborers could, as a compromise,
easily be secured for our Hawaiian cano fields.

Kussia, and must bo repressed by Great Britain, just as France was
repressed by Russia after.the France-Russian alliance. Tho alli

now largely dominate affairs in tho orient. Jn any event Russia
will bo forced to give up Manchuria or fight.

It is no small cstal'h.-hment, but a

from morning to night witli those
who are looking for bargains; w.'thout

The market is just what it's; name
implies a thieves' market, where
moths do not corrupt, because then?
is always a stream of purchasers lor
goods at ridiculous prieeF. Nothing
remains in stock over a few days.
Spread out on tables or piles high on
the ground can be found samples of
almost anything, for the Mexican
ratero is not particular what he
steals. The thieves do not them
selves act as the ,-alemen, for this
would be dishonest even to the Mexic
an mind. They dispose of their plun
der either for a lump sum or take a
commission from the sellers.
There is no assortment of goods as
to class Or kind. It is a easo of pick
and choose. Crockery, cutlery, tin
ware and cooking utensils are the
main staples, for the Mexican is care
less,, and the thieves of his kind find
this sort of plunder easy to get and
with u ready market. The proprietor
of one of the well known ' local
restaurants admits that nearly all
his knives, forks and table linen
come from the thieves' market. He
makes it a point regmarly to visit
there to replenish what may have
been stolen from his own place.
But it is perhaps in the line of curi
osities, books and objects of art that
the thieves' market is most interest
ing. Tho libraries of tho monks,
scattered in the war of reform, are
represented now and then. The
thieves, of course, know nothing of
the value of tho books.
Recently a foiio of Shakespeare,
bound in vellum, in splendid condition,
notwithstanding; the long ago date of
its publication, was picked up by a
book lover for $1.50 in Mexican silver.
Several bibliophiles of the United
States have regular agents in the
thieves'market, and it pays them.
With Maxmilian and his court many
rare works of art came to Mexico.
In the rush away from Mexico these
were left behind. Within the last
month a fan, beyond doubt by Wat
teau, was bought in the thieves,
market for $8. The painting is
still bright, the lace exquisite and
rare,- mid the ivory sticks, inlaid
with gold, are still intact.
Mexico's many wars have made
the country an arsenal of obsolete
weapons. Swords, guns and firearms
from the time of Cortes to the pre
sent decade can be picked up in the
tluov.es market for little or nothing,
Some of them, outside of their value
as curios, are of intrinsic worth, as
an American discovered not long ago.
He bought for u trifle an old sword,
tarnished and ditty. The style of
the hilt pleat-ed him. When he had
it cleaned, he found that scabbard,
hilt and blade were inlaid w'.th rich
gold of marvelous artistfc design.
