5 Teri years ngo, thd writer of this editorial heartily supported
the adoption bf a constitutional ataeiidment in the legislature of
California, putting a restriction on suffrage, with education as the
test. If such a restriction were needed there, it is a hundred fold
more heeded here; and it would be a Godsend to the Islands if con
gress would so amend the organic act as to apply a rigid educa:
tioniil test. True, it would cut off a great many ignorant Hawaiian
votes, but the intelligent Hawaiians might well congratulate them
selves with the result, because it would then be beyond the power
of demagogues to disgrace the Hawaiian race and name by eleva
tion to oflice of the rill-raff that
legislature. Wit-n a restricted sullrage, one fact would at once be
come prominent, and that is that

Honolulu deserves credit and
other Islands, in its effort to give
mercantile lair in J ujy. While Honolulu will be primarily benefit

A Story oi Two Necklaces.
When General Weyler was sent by
Spain as governor general to Manila,
Don Carlos Palanca, the wealthy
Spaniardized Chinaman, determined
to send Mrs. Weyler a gift, the
customary way of obtaining the good
will of the Spanish officials. He
found at a jeweler's two necklaces,
each costing $20,000 and both being
so beautiful that he couM not choose
between them. So he sent them both
to Mrs. Weyler with the message
that she would make her choice. He
received a warm letter of thank both
from her, stating that the necklaces
were so beautiful that she could not
decide between thera and hence would
keep both, which she did.
