land and Gerinanv n the other, is
sidelight on the Monroe doGtrine.

truth remains that sorne of iher
porarily.at least, by the two powers. The United States should
give them free hand to collect their debt, ev.en if a vermttnenl oc
cupancy is necessary. This would of course nullify the Monroe
doctrine so far as Venezuela is concerned, and no one would feel
particularly sorry. And the quicker the other South American

editorial allusions to President Roosevelt's letter on the race prob
lein in the South, and both papers make tbe same absurd mistake
which Roosevelt made, in attributing mce feeling among the
southern whites to "prejudice." It is not prejudice, but a struggle
for political and social existence, because if the negroes at the
South were allowed free and unrestricted suffrage, all south o.

this result which would literally expatriate the white people of

21 The result of the recent special session of the senate is very
satisfying. We now know that, we have a safe and conservative
senate, and we have as good material for the lower house. Better
still, the foundation is laid for intelligent legislation when the body
meets in Febuary. As a retrospect the home-rule legislature of
two years ago looks like a dense black cloud, while the possibility
that we might have had such a one again this year, simply gives
one the shivers. The Islands are
the intelligint class of voters, should stand together in the future
and see that the good work is helped along. "
5f According to the latest news, Cuban reciprocity is getting
badly tangled up. The treaty between Cuba and the United States
is the stumbling block. Proper concessions will be demanded
before there is any reduction in the Cuban sugar tariff and there
is where the sticker comes. England would lose much of her
trade with Cuba, if the demanded
to the United States, and will work against the treaty, on that ac
count. Hence, it nay be assumed
with Cuba in the near future.

take but little more to make it necessary to resummons the powers
to China, and Wu's efforts to advance his country will further fo

j5 The dark days for the Islands have passed, and brighter day
have come, both politically and
with able and competent men m the legislature and with better
times and more money in Honolulu, all of which we now have, the
future beguns to look rosy again. Sugar is advancing in price,
the Cuban reciprocity is practically a dead measure, the cable is
coming, and Wailuku will have the county seat. What more could
you ask? '
Ex-queen Liliuokalani.'who is now in Washington, will have a
hard time, to convince . the hard-headed Americans that the
' crown lands did not follow the sovereignty' when the provisional
government and the republic of Hawaii were established. But for
all that, there is an universal sentiment that she should be gener
ously provided for, and there is no doubt but that this will be done,
when Prince Kuhio takes his seat in congress.
Hawaiian oranges ripen
known as lh( fall months and it is during these months that there
is a dearth tf oranges in California, whose orange crop does not
mature till the holidays. Consequently, if orange culture is made
t a success on the' Islands the Coast will furnish us a three month's
clear market in the fall.
f3i Our new territorial officers are an able and upright body of
men whose services are much needed just now. The selection of
Judge Kepoikal from Maui was no Jess flattering than politic and
progressive. Cooper lor Superintendent of Public Works is all
right, and so is Fisher for.Auditor.

A Jii0grer'R Trick.
The won(Jrful feftt.s of East Indian
jugglers lia'e inriimd the thsme .of
many a lettftn frnni travelers "f the
orient, but none i more surprising
than that for which an old seadog
vouches. While he was on officer on
board a F. and O. steamship two
na'ives came aboard at Madras, be
says. They were a jujrgler and his
assistant. After they had performed
a number of minor feats and gather
ed quit a crowd around tlem they
called for a sack and a piece of sail-.
These ha.viiij been provided, the
chief juggler made a small tcntlikt
structure with the canvas and some
stools. He then p'aeed his asMM-ant
in the sack and allowed a eailor to
tie the knot which bound him a fast
prisoner. This done, the. chid car
ried the sack into an open space
warning tbe people to stand back
'some distance, and then carried on
an animated conversation with his
assistant, whose replies could be
distinctly heard coming from th
sack. Suddenly the chief rushed for
ward, picked up the sack and dump
ed it overboard where, to the horr
or of the passengers and crew, it
sank out of sight.
Immediately the captain lushed
forward and seized the man, under
the full belief. that he had murdered
his companion, but the juggler only
smiled uno, pointing to the canvas,
asked that it be raised., This' wa
done, and the supposed drowned man
was discovered squatting on the
deck. So realistic had . been the
throwing overboard, howeved that
i.t was some time before the surprised
passengers could realize a murder
had cot been committed.
His Solemn Oath.
A popular cumedir.n tells a story
of a waiter at a London restaurant
who was sadly gieu to drink. A
party of young men determined to
reform him, and one day they read
to him an imaginary paragraph from
a paper relating a terrible accident
in which an inebriate in blowing out
a candle was killed by the flame
igniting the alcoholic fumes of bis
breath. James pricked up bis ears
at this and requested that the para
graph might be read to him again,
which was done, to the evidrnt horror
of the poor man, who immediately
went in search of a Bible.
Returning with this, he expressed
a desire to take a solemn oath upon
it, bemoaned the fact that he had
been a sorry tippler and was bring
ing himself to ruin and then swore
that never again so long as be lived
would he attempt to blow out a

Points About a Good Horse.
lhere are some points wfcich arc
valuable in horses of every descrip
tion. The head should be propor
tionately large and well set on. The
lower jaw bones should be sufficiently
far apart to "enable the head to form
an angle with the neck, which gives
it free motion and a graceful car
riagei and prevents it beanog too
heavily on the hand. The eye should
be large, a little prominent, and the
eyelids fine and thin. The ear should
be small and erect and quick in
motion. The lop ear indicates dullness
and stubbornness. When too far back
there is a disnosition to mischief.
