Hdwamns are not yet sufficiently up and intelligent in the wuysot

cimm i hut. nithar in literarv stvle nor in sent' went could it have
been au utterance of the News. Quot9 us literally, Brer Testa, or
you will chango the meaning of what we have written, sure kela!
Bat to get to tbe heart of the matter, Brother Testa, the News
will jow and hero redoline tne position which it has steadily main
t k ued. The class of Hawaii arts who elected Wilcox and tha Homo
R ih! legislators demonstrated painfully their inability to select
proper men. Nevertheless, there is u large number of llawaiians,
yourself among tne number, who are quit. intelligent enough for
sell' govern :nent, and until you all get together,' either in the re
pjolican. democratic or home'rulu party, you will see the Hawaiian
mine disgraced by the dominance of tha isrnoraut mass of the
Hawaiian, while the educated and leading men of your race divide
"and split up into two or three parties. That is the kind of "pepper"
the NevVS has bjen throwing in your eyes, aud it will keep at it
until your vision is sufficiently cleared to see the truth.
S(g Now the cat is out of the bag, and the enormity of Father
Wendelin's conduct at Kalaupapa is laid bare, to the gaze of the
public. That hardened wretch had the audacity to insist that the
lepers at the settlement should live together only as man and wife,
and not liko a herd of wild cattle .on the rauge. Of course, Dr.
Slogger would not have attempted ;o fire him out of the settlement
without good cause, but that so serious a. charge as this should bo
laid at Fathev . Wendelin's door is startling. And still worse,
Senator Burtcn of Kansas, whose moral sense seems about on a
par with that of Father Wendelin,.indicite3 by incidental remarks
and questions that he, too, feels that there should be a decent . re
gard paid to marital lavs,even if. the sexes have to be segregated.

Undoubtedly there are some people on the Islands who
'lingly see all Asiatic labor excluded from our plantations,

'rtataly will not throw open the door to unrestricted

production on tho Hawaiian Islands, . ' . .

Sjjf The coffee growers of the Islands are missing a golden oppor
tunity in not strongly p resenting their claims for a protective duty
on Hawaiian coffee, before tne Senatorial Commission. Maui alone
can and will produce from ten to tifteeu millions of pounds of
coffee per year.and the Islands would eventually produce one hun
dred million pounds per year, if a duty were placed on coffee which
would foster the industr7 on the Islands. Tho fact that coffee did
not do well in tho wet belt of Olaa is no' argument against coffee
production, because there are thousands upon thousands of acres
on the Islands that are specially adapted to the production of a
high grade of coffee.
Visitors from abroad ; to Wailuku, especially business men,
frequently ask the News editor why it is that the merchants of Wai
luku negleottu use the columns of the. News to intelligently adver
tise their different lines of business, and the reply generally pro
vokes a smile. As a matter of fact, the merchants of both Honolulu
and Hilo freely use the advertising columns of the News, and write
expressing - satisfaction with the results. ,The merchants and
business men of Wailuku could and should do the same, but
3 Thomas, the Fitch, with the unerring 'scent of the Nevadan
cayote, busied himself digging into the grave of the past, in his
recent speech in Honolulu, during which he resurrected the tat
tered remnants of the "bloody shirt," and triumphantly waved it
aloft The reporters do not add whether or not he went into Father
Adam's record in the Garden of Eden, or the tergiversations of our
forbears who sported caudle appendages.

?3S The fact that a profitable trade in bananas has been established
'otween Hilo and Sin Francisco is on9 ray ofiight from the early
'- .wn of the new era in Island exports. It is perfectly true that the
islands will pro J ace many things which cannot be grown lit) the
CJnited States, but which arj in great deuvmd thero and U is but
i question of time until the export trade from tho Islands to tho
States will amount to millions, annually.

An Easy Victory.
Loru Charles Hamilton used to jf"
"bout Naples uttendi-d by a larire,
ferocious bulldoy. Having decided
upon gointf to Rome, tie proceeded to
the station and took bis place in a
first class carriage, the ''dawg"
taking up a position on a sen, oppo
site his muster. The platform in
spector, with many yesliculations,
declared tliat the bulldog should not
travel in a passenger carriage.
"Very well, then, tuko him out;"
was Lord Charles' rejoiudcr.
In vain tho official expostulated.
Hd merely reltei'ateJ his former re
ply, a piece of advice it is needless to
say which was not followed, and Lord
Charles, apparently master of the
pituation, threw' himself back in his
scat and calmly lighted a cigar.
Hut the Italians were not to be out
done, and, quietly detaching thecal-
ritige iu which the English "milor"
was seated, they made up the train
w ith another compartment aud start
d it off.
Lord Charles sat qnicty smoking
fop about a quarter of an hour and
then, surprised at the delay, thrust
his head out of the window and do
mantled when tho train was going t;
start. His feelings wuen tho situa
tion was described to him may be itn

Meanings ot the Word "Stove.'
The word "stove," as applied to a
heater for a room, seems to be of
the same age as the article to which
the name. is now applied, for while
the word as a name had an existence
in early English it was used in a
Both Lord Bacon and Woodward
used it as referring to a house or
room artificially warmed and par
ticularly a hothouse for . plaut.s,
Bacon also used the world as a verb
in way of keeping warm in a house
or roomr a "to stove, orange trees
and myrtles," to quote from his
writings. Pcpys used the verb in a
nautical heuse, as heating for the
purpose of making pliable, as "stove
bolt ropes.",. .- : ; '..V; -4- ,f v ;'
But all these definitions are obsc
lete now, such disuse dating from the
viiiie "-hen Dr. Franklin made his
discoveries and applications. The
French word "etuve," it may bo add
ed, describes a hothouse or bathing
room and hence is parallel iu mean
ing with tho early English word.
The English Navy.
In the earliest times of the British
navy there was practically no distinc
tion between the merchantman and
tho men-of-war. In tho rare times
of peace men-of-war traded as mer
chantmen, while merchantmen always
went armed. Thus in time of war
tho trader became the warship and
vice versa. From the time of the
conquest and probably earlier dow.i
to the days of Elizabeth thisAvas the
ordinary practice. Elizabeth hired
out frhlps of the navy for all sorts of
purposes, from piracy to slave trad
ing taking her share of the profits
when the venture was successful and
disclaiming all responsibility when

Ancient Trades Unions.
Spven thousand years ago there
were trades unions in Nineveh Bind
Babylon, and so strict were their
rules that in some cases the penalty
of death was inflicted for infringing
t hem. Each man's work' was strictly
defined, and even the number of hours
that he was allowed to vvork was
stated in the charter of his iruild or
union. Later exactly the Harne state
of affairs existed in Pompeii, and in
scriptions have been discovered stat
ing specific appointments of officials
to trades unions. The most power
ful of these appears to have been
that of the Fishermen's guild.
The Honest Statesman.'
Some years ugo an Englishman
visited Washington and met a states
man belonging to the minority' party
who gave a most startling acoountof
the corruption existing in tha govern
ment and the terrible struggle he
he hud against it.
"Do you mean to say, sir," . asked
the stranger seriously, "that you
are the only honest man in the
American government ?"
"Well," replied the statesman,
stroking his beard meditatively, ' I
wouldn't go so far that. There may
be four or five more somewhere."
Eating From the Same Plate.
In former days it was usual for a
couple seated together to eat from
one trencher, more particularly' if
the relations between them were of
an intimate nature or, again, if it
were the master and mistress of the
establishment. Walpole relates that
so late as the middle of the eighteenth
century the old Duke and Duchess of
Hamiltou occupied . the dai3 & the
head of the. room and- preserved the
traditional manner by sharing the
same plate. It was a token of at
tachment and tender recollection of

for three weeks. At the end of that
time the contents of the bottle should
be strained, and the extract is ready
for use. Ah eveu teaspoonful of his
