TOPICS OF THE -DAY.
3?ho Star last night is extreme
ly worried, becanso tho Holojiua
gave away the inside btiginess of
tho. compromise now in contemp
lation. Mr. Hatch so the Star
sayij, does not like to rush into
print but ho nevertheless em
phatically denies that any stops
i have been takon which could bo
" construed into an attempt for a
com promise. "We hav to differ
with tho "acting president" the
attorney of Mr. Clans Spreckols.
Mr. Hatoh, as wo admitted in our
formor issne is as shrewd and
ionc-hoaded as any man who is
connected with any political
party hero, but Mr. Hatch can
not blufl us. Mr. Hatch tho
"acting president" and Mr.
Spreckels' attorney is mainly
after coin and ho gets most of it
in his last capacity.
Mr. Dolo has returned. If ho
is in such a condition in regard
to health as will enable him to
conduct tho afFairsof tho country,
is'to bo seen. Tho man who took
his placo, aud who really to-day
is at tho head of the affairs of tho
country, Mr. Francis Hatch, is
irirtuallv tho sheot-anchor of the
Xrovisiqual 'Government, and if
3eft alone will cany the members
-of it through the breakers ahead
in a better manner than any of
them over hoped for. But it
should never bo forgotten that
Mr. Hatch first and foremost is
the attorney of Claus Spreckels.
Mr. Hatch was asked on sever
al occasions to take a position in
cabiuots under tho monarchy.
Mr. Spreckels if wo remember
rightly offered Mr. Hatch a spec
ial retainer if ho would take the
offico as Attorney-General. Mr.
Hatch, although, the obedient
servaut of King Spreckols resist
ed tho temptation of an extra
thousand dollars, but when ho
thought that Mr. J. L. Stovens
had accomplished tho vile aud
contomptiblo steal of these little
Islands, on which Mr. Hatch and
his family had found a very pro
fitable abiding place then ho was
only too willing to become a
lKdtlician, and to basely desert
the. man who fee d him.

arose from a man on whom ho

diefterence and insults as he
nsed to do in Makawao on any
God-forsaken Chinaman, the
ex-bullock-lassoer of Makawao,

And then wo suggest to Marsha
Hitchcock to ship Mr. Andrews
back to Makawao. In Honolulu
we don't need him. A family
compact is good enough, but
Doctor Andrews on tho Miowera
(or rather not on her), Lorriu
Andrews as Chief Captain of tho
Police, and Lorriu Andrews T.
in Washington, are even more
than our community can stand.
The Advertiser of yesterday
morning puonsues lis usual
financial steamer editorial. It
compares the recoipts and ex
peuditures of the first eight
months of last year, with those
of tho same period of this year.
Tho statement is mado that the
recoipts for tho first eight months
of this year, wore $967,924. 0.
Tho expenditores during tho
same period "have amounted to
the unpreconted amount" of
$l,29S,273.79. That is said in a
hurrah stylo. Great God! what
a showing, what tinauceering.
Tho astounding assertion, is
made, although, the expendi
tures have exceeded the receipts
by S330.3I9.09, that "the present
government has succeeded in
establishing a surplus in both
tho postal savings bank and the
treasury with only a total new
sale of bonds to date of 152,-

expenditures were only $393,175.

those words knows full well,
that the appropriation bill for ,
the Biennial period of 1S90 2
expired on the 31sfc of March
1S92. Thai man knows, that the
Legislature of this Kingdom
met in the month of May of 1S92.

That roan knows, that tne gov
ernment at that time could only
continue to make payments for
on account of objects as specified
in the Appropriation Bill. That
man knows, that the Ways and
Means Uommittee, in conjunc
tion with tho Beform Party (o
whom he was a supporter) in the
House hampered the working o
the Government of that year to
the best of their ability. That
man knows, that until the appro
priation Bill for the Biennial
period of 1S92- 4, had passed
the House and become law,
that no debts except those
especially authorized by
special act during the session of
the House could be paid; That
man knows, that tho- appropri
ation bill for the present Bien
nial period 'did not become law
until the 3rd of January, 1893
That man knows, that the infer
once ho means to insinuate by the
words, "with a large legacy of
debts left unpaid," is a lie.
Where is tins surplus that is
spoken of? We fail to discover
it. In the financial statement of
October 4th, it is stated that tho
cash on hand P. S. Bank on that
date, was S20.633.70. The no
tices of withdrawals amounted
on tho same date to $29,801.
The treasury balance on tho
above date was 130,9oS,o4,

that $330,000 and odd more than
the receipts have been expended.
Where is the surplus?
In an editorial in its issue of
the 3rd. of October, the Adver
tiser informs the public (no
doubt knowing where of it spoke)
that on that date the July bills
were ordered paid; that a pro
vision tor the payment oi the
August bills which amounted to
$14 .005,84 had been made. Yet
on the 5th of October the Coun
cils are informed that the out
standing bills of the different
bureaus as of September 1st
amounted only to $16,000. Did

The receipts for the year end

March 31st 1894, taking the Ad

What was the cost of the mon
archy to the tax-paj-eis? The
amount appropriated by the last
Legislature for the "Civil List"
for "two years,", was $62,999.
The cost of the present Govern
ment to the tax-payers, has been
$135,462.S6 Ton eight months.
That is the amount known to the
public; what unpaid expenses
there are is not known. Tho
cost of this "ovenment to the
taxpayers, has been more than
enough to support the monarchy
for four years.
Where is that surplus? Echo,

OH ! JACK.
The mosfthing thing" of the
season is a new drink which first
made its appearance in New
York about a year ago. It is
simply a mint cordial, but as you
value your social standing don't
call it such. Call it creme do
mentho, pronouncing the first
word "crame" (rhyming with
frame) and tho lasf'mant ' (rhym
ing with the Englishman's can't.)
2?ow you have it. Now you may
order it without losing caste at
the Pier. Tho waiter will bring
you a tiny wine glass, packed
full of cracked ice, into which
he'll pour in 3our presence, so
that yon may see that it is the
imported article as much of
that beautiful green colored
liquid as is required to fill the
interstices of the ice. If the ice
has been packed in firmly, a
rapid evaporation ensues, and
the liquor become, slightly frap-
pe, making a most delicious
draught, which must be sipped
very slowly and very daintily.
Do ladies drink creme de men-
the? Well, I should smilel
Creme de raenthe parties are tho
very "thing thing." The part- j
take seats at a table on tho
veranda, and the divine liquid is
served as I have described. Tho
delicious odor of the mint fills
the air as the drinkers discuss
fashions, foibles and faiblesses.
It's immense, I Assure yon, and
the beauty of it all is that this
creme de menthe is a splendid
tonic and digestive. The best
time to drink it is after eating,
fter the black coffee. Tho
ladies adore creme de menthe
not only on account of its deli-
ciousiv tonic and cooling effects,
but for another reason, which I
must whisper. Its a cure for
wind on the stomach a verv
common ailment among our
dyspeptic young ladies, and
aa ailment, too, which is absol
utely death to sentiment, and
present form o
which has been the means of
breaking oif asore eag.jge agents
