Canada Waits on the United States.
OTTAWA advices are that the majority sentiment in Canada in
favor of the reciprocity agreement with the United States awaits
the action of congress, says the San Francisco Call. The last
hope of the tories and reactionaries in the Dominion rests on the stand
patters, their natural kindred in this country. An Ottawa dispatch in
the Boston Transcript describes the situation:
"The hopes of Canada's tories, protectionists and jingoes are now
fixed on Washington. Every reviler, every hater of the United States
that this country contains, is longing for assurance that the democratic
house will reject the reciprocity agreement, or propose to change its
details in such wise as to cause Canadian rejection of the unchanged
remainder. Every stanch Canadian friend and well wisher ot the
republic desires to see the pact passed precisely as arranged and recom
mended by Mr. Taft. That would enable the people of the Dominion
to feel that negotiation with the Washington executive is not useless.
Lapse of the agreement could not but cause Canadians, and many another
people, to feel that any responsible foreign ministry endangers itself by
attempting to bargain with the only authorities through whom the re
public can bargain. Certainly a whole Canadian generation would
arise and vanish from the political scene before any Ottawa cabinet
would again venture to accept a United States invitation to negotiate
for freer trade. Upon the democratic head be the result. Laurier and
his friends have done everything possible to make good their part.
They stand firmly pledged to fight it out on this line if it takes all
summer, in case Washington does its part. The great financial forces
arrayed here against the pact have not .budged the ministry by the
breadth of a hair."
The preponderance of liberal sentiment in Canada assures the ratifi
cation of the agreement by the Dominion. In this country there is an
equally strong populor sentiment in favor of the agreement. The only
hope of the opposition rests on parliamentary obstruction in congress
by the standpatters, who attempt to justify their policy by an utterly
baseless plea that reciprocity would hurt the American farmer. The
farmer has always been made "the goat" for the high protectionists,
and he is periodically humbugged by the inclusion in the tariff of sham
duties that make a pretense of protecting the products of the farm.
Of course, these duties are quite inoperative, because the prices of
grain and other farm staples are fixed in foreign markets, where our
tariff cuts no figure.
In brief, the tariff has no effect on the prices of commodities of
which we have a large surplus for export. The wool growers, for
exemple, might by this time have learned from the bitter lessons of ex
perience that the tariff on raw wool helps them not at all. These
duties are put in the tariff for the single purpose of deceiving the
farmer, and they have no other effect.
, Moreover, market reports from Canada show that horses, cattle,
sheep, hogs, fruit, vegetables, eggs and butter bring about the same
prices there as here. The American farmer has nothing to fear from
Canadian competition, and the pretense that there is any danger of
that sort is dishonest.
The Board of Health has not yet proven that the recent cholera out
break was from poi. Even the physicians agree as to this. It seems
strange, however, that out of the many who eat the poi form this shop;
the same poi, out of the same container, who lived in the same house
as the original case, not a single additional case of cholera has devel
oped. This must be anew form of cholera, as the disease does not
usually act in this manner. The truth is the Board of Health simply
used this case as a lever, they gained their point, but unless they prove
their contention, the end is not yet. It is a well known fact that
inspectors are appointed -to the Health- Board according to their politi
cal strength, and this is the way they hope to make Honolulu clean
The evidence in the Hilo scandal was bad enough, but evidently the
Board of Education wanted more, as they have applied the whitewash
brush. A real investigation would now be in order.
Friends No Longer.
(By J. W. Foley.)
THEY used t' be friends, jist as close as could be,
But one had a bay that could go in 2.03
So he said, an' he could fer a quarter, I guess;
But somethin' was wrong with his wind, which was less
Than a trotter's should be; an' one had a gray
That was toppy an' fast, but got spavined someway;
So they traded both honest enough, I allow;
An' they used t' be friends, but they ain't speakin' now.
They used t' be friends jist as thick as two peas
In a pod an' got on jist as fine as y' please;
But one had a maid who was precious as pearl, .
What wimmen'll call an unusual girl!
An' one day she quit wouldn't work any more
But went to th other fer five dollars more;
All honest enough jist a chance, I allow.
An' they used t' be friends, but they ain't speakin' now.
They used t be friends, an' they lived right nex' door
To each other, an' set a remarkable store
By each other fer years, an' had never a spat i
Till one bought a bulldog an' one bought a cat;
An' one day the cat turned up half-tore in two.
So somebody doctored a soup-bone an' threw
It across to th' dog fair enough, I allow.
An' they used t' be friends, but they ain't speakin' now.
A Sheep's Gland Proves Cure For Form
Remarkable instances of the cure
of insanity are given by Dr. George
M. Robert)!!, physician superin
tendent of the Royal Edinburgh
Asylum for the Insane, in his an
nual report, published in the
"Among the recoveries during
1910," says Dr. Rolcrtson, a
series of three cases of utmost in
structive kind show the progress
that science is slowly but surely
making. Two at least of these cases
would have been deemed incurable
twenty years ago.
"The first patient suffered from
the insanity of myxedema, a disease
due to the defective secretion of a
gland in the neck called the thyroid.
Owing to the absence of this secre
tion from her blood, in a few weeks'
time the whole body increased in
bulk and the movements became
slow, the expression of face changed
completely, and even the tone of
voice altered in character. She be
came childish in mind, expressed
silly delusions and heard imaginary
"The patient was giving tablets
prepared from the thyroid glands of
the sheep, and in a week she was
transformed from a misshapen,
stupid object into a bright and
pleasant-featured woman her na
tural self, and quite unrecognizable
as the creature of a week before.
' 'A few centuries ago these kalei-
descopic changes would have been
put down to magic, the spell of an
offended wizard transforming her
body and soul and a counter-charm
restoring her original shape and per
sonality. Today every medical man
knows the secret, and people have
ceased to be astonished at such
things. Nevertheless it was a
miracle of science."
The second case of insanity was
due to an excess of the secretion of
the thyroid in the blood. This
tends to produce great nervousness
and excitability and many other
symptoms, such as palpitation
There is a theory, not yet establish
ed, that excess of thyroid secretion
is neutralized by a substance in the
blood. In this case, according to
the theory, there was not sufficient
of this substance to neutralize the
great excess, so she was supplied
for this purpose with serum from a
goat whose thyroid gland had been
removed. In this serum none of
this special substance had been used
up, there being no secretion present,
and apparently as the result of this
treatment the patient recovered."
A Deluge of Hymn Books.
Incensed because two men in the
congregation slept and snored while
he was conducting service Dr. R. H
Crossfield, a revivalist, hurled hymn-
books at the offenders.
Doctor Crossfield is president of
the Transylvania university of Lex
ington, Ky. He was greatly an
noyed during the sermon at the
First Christian church of Los An
geles by two of the brethren who
had fallen asleep. After calling at
tention to the fact that he was be
ing listened to attentively by all but
two of the congregation, the doctor
observed that one of the transgress
ors awoke with a guilty smile.
The other, however was not dis
turbed by such a soft rebuke, and
his deep breathing soon grew into a
sonorous snore. ,
The Kentucky parson, keeping
right on with the sermon, began to
shy hymnbooks at the unconscious
Bang! bang I bang" went one
book after another until the audi
ence was in a titter: but the man
simply opened his eyes for a mo

face to profile and slept on until the

al Bank of Wailuku is a great be
liever in doing business in an up-to-date
manner, and in having up-to-date
appliances. There has just
arrived from New York for the
bank, the latest t-tyle Vanadium
steel safe. These safes are guaran
teed fireproof and burglar proof;
and are a great acquisition for the
safe keeping of securities and other
valuable papers. The mechanism
of the locks is of the latest approved
pattern, and is regulated by a clock.
That is, when the, safe is closed a
clock is wound, and set, and it is
impossible for anyone to open the
safe until the hands of the clock
arrive at the time for opening.
The Wailuku bank is the first insti
tution in the islands to acquire such
a Bafe and the management are to
be congratulated on their progressive
