HONOLULU, DEC. G,
According to the Advertiser
Daputy Collector McStocker has
been endeavoring to sell on be
half of this virtuous republic
about $50,000 worth of opium.
Ho failed, we are told.
But, may we ask our virtuous
rulers, if the attempt to sell
opium abroad, is a very nice
trafic for such a Christian gov
ernment to be in ?
Opium is contraband because
it is considered a noxious drug.
"Wo protect by laws our fellow
citizens from the use of it, and at
one time opium smughng was
punished equal to manslaughter.
With the fine spirit of human
ity which distinguishes Messrs.
Smith & Co., these immaculate
gentlemen do not attempt to de
stroj' the alleged injurious drug,
but through their agent they try
to palm it off on a friendly and
neighborly community. For
sooth! The virtue of the republic
u most olastic.
If a big gang of counterfeiters
was caught here and a largo a
inount of greenbacks secured the
government would probably hesi
tate in sonding tho "goods" ab
road and try to palm them off on
the citizens of the United States.
If our "republican" conscience
is weak on one point and the au
thorities ready to destroy coun
terfeit notes and spurious coin
how can there bo a dofonso or an
explanation of tho wholesale ex
portation of contraband opium?

A PROPER DECISION.
Judgo Pony, this morning,
fiued tho oditor of tho Holomua
$10.00 for contempt of Court.
Wo are glad, "that tho judgo has
established a ruling, which in
tho futuro will prevent the papers
from criticising cases on trial.
Tho Advertiser and Star have
boon profuso in that direction,
but tho Attornoy-Genoral's wits
wore not sufficiently sharpened
to realize tho ofienco. In tho
caso of tho Holomua Mr. W. O.
Smith was thoro. And wo paid
our fino with a groat deal of
pleasure (specially as tho mouoy
as borrowed) bocauso, wo
know, that any break in tho
future made by tho opposition
papers will moot a swift robuko
from the District Judge. Cases
ou trial should not bo commented
on. A siniplo statement of pro ceedings
is proper, and it should
not bo exceeded. Wo aro glad,
that the Judge has arrived at
that conclusion, and wo aro
glad, that brother Smith got our
$10.00 for his empty treasury.
Mr. Dailoy, who lately made, a
fiasco in Honolulu, and who,
through his contemptiblo action
towards Miss Dalgleish succeed
ed in milking himself an imposi
bility as a theatrical manager in
this town has had the eft ronton
to publish an advertisement in
tho & F. Music and Drama, in
which ho titles himself as maua
ger of tho Opera Houso and tho
special pot of Mr. W. G Irwin.
Tho following local in tho paper
referred to, will explain to tho
Honolulu public tho coldcheek
of their "adored" Dailey.
A NEW XANAGEIt.
W. G. Irwin & Co., tho resident
branch of the great Spreckels
firm at Honolulu, havo placed tho
control of the Hawaiian Opera
Houso in tho bauds of W, li.
Dailey, whose dramatic company
recently closed tho second suc
cessful engagement there within
s year. Manager Dailey has
earned tho confidence of Mr.
Irwin and the Hawaiian public in
general by giving them the
longest and most varied dramatic
season they ever enjoyed, with
stage settings which they had
never seen equalled. Unless he
! .ends some other strong attrac
tions to tho Islands before next
spring Mr. Dailey will make a
third visit with his own company.
While we like Mr. Dailey per
sonally and fully realize the pro
vocations and annoyances, to
which he has been subjected and
also the energy unfolded by him,
we distinctly, remonstrate against
his attempt to assume a position
wlrch ho does not hold and the
nse of the names of Messrs.
Irwin and Spreckels.
Whenever Mr. Dailey brings a
good company to Honolulu, he
will find a welcome. Bnt he
can't run this town or the Opera
THE NORRIE CASE.
Editor Xorrie was lined $100
and costs for seditious libel in
the District Court this morning.
I The editor was also fined $10 for
contempt of court. The origiual
ofienso was a publication in which
tho editor stated the astounding
fact that Mr. Dole was president
of Hawaii through treason, fraud
and might. Tho contempt case
was instigated by tho Attorney
General, because tho editor after
tho first call of his case stated
that as a matter of courso the
republic won every point.
Mr. Paul Nueraann who ap
peared for the defendant handled
Mr. W. O. Smith with gloves
(boxing-gloves). Mr. Smith
squirmed and wormed, but at no
point succeeded in proving that
Mr. Dole is tho president of Ha
waii without treason, fraud and
Tho latest agency was kindly
dropped by Mr. Neumann who
admitted that no "might" was at
any time shown by Mr. Smith's
crowd while the questions of trea
son and fraud were left to a jury.
The antagonism of Mr. W. O.
Smith against tho editor of this
paper dates back into ancient
history. Tho editor is married,
into a family that at all times
havo boen tho object of the spite
of tho Smith gang. Tho failure
many years ago in removing a
certain member of tho said fami
ly from tho sheriffship of Maui
filled friend Smith with bitter
and hostilo feelings. His lato
attempt to "down" tho editor of
tho Holomua will not bo more suc
cessful. Wo still hold tho fort
aud don't you forget it.
-They Stand Shoulder to
We find in tho Fift Shimpo tho
opitomo. of a conversation which
Count Okuuia is said to have
hold with a cortain visitor on the
burning question of tho day. The
first essential at present, remark
ed tho statesman is cordial unit'
between all classes of the people,
so that tho Arm' and Navy will
bo ouabled to push ou bodily and
unhesitatingly, and thus facili
tate tho conclusion of a most
honourable poaco at the earliest
possible date. Nothing can be
more dangerous than internal dis
sension in tho case of a country
that has undertaken a foreign
war. And yet tho least delay in
the management of tho present
affair would bo fraught with
equal peril, for shonld war be
protracted for any unduo length
of time reckless adventurers of
the Major von Hannecken typo
would offer their aid and services
to China, which would result in
tho equipment of a far more effi
cient army. Another necessity
is to impress foreign countries
with tho truth of the fact that the
Japanese people are to a man
united in their desire to prose
cute the war; that therefore they
are willing to set aside all differ
ences of opinion in tho approach
ing session of tho Imperial Diet.
To this end the proof that public
opiuion is unauimous with regard
to tho war aud its prosecution,
should bo substantiated. Somo
may possibly, lot us say, find
fault with the extraordinary ses
sion now summoned, condemning
this step as not boing in strict
keeping with the constitution.
Bat this is no time to contend
oversncb a point. It may, in
connection, be remarked that the
provisiou referring to an announ
cement fort days in advance
whenever a session of the Impe
rial Diet is convened was made
simply for the purpose of avoid
ing any unuatural hostility ba
tween political parties; and there
fore at such a time as this when
all partisan strife is suspended
and every mind engrossed in . the
war, the calling together
of a special oession at short no
tice does not at all involve a vio
lation of the spirit of the consti
tution. It is therefore expected
that, when the Cabinet Ministers
explain the inevitability oi this
step and declare that thy have
summon -d a special 'session ou
their own responsibility, the Im
perii Diet will accede to this ex
planation. A responsible Cabi
net enjoying the full confidence
of a nation is, so to speak, in the
possession of unlimited power in
The Cou:t then referred to an
event which happened during the
administration of Lord Beacons
field's Cabinet, when Suez Canal
shares were purchased by the ex
ercise of the arbitary power uf
the Cabinet, tho Ministers being
ready and willing to resign if
their action failed t.i receive the
subsequent approval of Parlia
ment. In the deliberations of the
Diet, continued the sago of Wa
seda, tho members should say all
they have to say on the occasion,
while the government ought to
conduct its affairs so as to avoid
tlrtj giving of future offenco.
It must not bo forgotten that
whenever Japan's influence in
tho East is extended, as will be
tho natural result of the victories
by land and sea, envy of foreign
powers bo will excited. This the
envy can bo easily transformed
into hatred, and the next step is
active interference in Japau's af
fairs. Those points should be
kept in mind by tho authorities.
There is a good deal of shrewd
ness in the above remarks. Even
at such a moment it is evident
that Count Oiniraa has not lost
sight of his pet theory of party
government; ho oven hints in the
above, if wo judgo aright, that
tho Cabinet should resign if it
fails to obtaiu tho approval of the
Diet in tho matter of the extra
ordinary convocation of the pres
ent special session. But it goes
without saying that any such step
would be suicidal. The manage
ment of the war caunot bo taken
out of the hands in which it now
lies unless the Ministers bo con
victed of gross carelessness and
ruinous failure. So far every
thing points to tho conclusion
that the right men aro in the
right place, and that despite the
barking of malcontents liko Mr.
Yukio or tho partisan inueudoes
of Couut Oknma, tho present
Cabinet will see Japan triumph
antly through the war.
It is very soldom, that tho
Honolulu stores have offered so
largo a variety of Xntas goods as
found today. Our substantial
citizens, however, who are not
looking for toys or trifles will do
well in calling at tho Hawaiian
Carriage Manufacturing Company
and there select a buggy or a
phaeton for the old lady, or a
surry in case, that the family
grows. Manager Dillingham gives"
good work at cheap prices.

1 we are to judge the popu
larity ot an article by the number
in actual use Havilaud China
stands on the crest of a popular
wave. The reason for it is the
low price at which it is sold. In
the United States, where the peo
ple are "Haviland Mad," the
price is thirty per cent higher
than it is here owing to the
tariff on this ware being so much
greater between France and the
United States than with Hawaii.
We have sold thousands of pieces
here and have never had anyone
complain of being tired of it.
Here's a something about the de
corations on Haviland China that
never wearies the eye. We have
some new colors that may please
you if you want to make up a set
for a single course.
i An entire new stock of Eefri
! aerators aud Ice Boxes built on
tho Ice Saving plan and finished
in the latest artistic style is what
we have to show vou. One of
these is largo enough to hold
meats and provisions for a largo
family. One compartment with
glass shelf is made for Butter and
! Cream exclusively. The sav
you can put onions in the same
compartment without the butter
boing affected, the ventilation is
so perfectly arranged. Our lowest
priced articles in this line are per-
j feet in-their Ice saving qualities.
Some very choice pieces of Cut
Glass will attract your attention
because of the price. We've
aimed to get them at a cost within
reach of the masses. Olive dishe3,
Creamers Muffiniers, Cruets,
Flower Stands, etc. None of thorn

The styles of articles in solid
Silverware aro so varied that it is
dillicult to keep track ofthem.
Wo have only the latest designs
personally selected by Mr. Hendry
during his recent visit to San
Prancisco. A half doz butter
Spreaders and individual plates
are pretty enough to eat Wore
they not nidegestatible. Berry
Forks and Servers. Tea Spoons,
Forks and Table Spoons, Ladles,
etc. The desigu of tho handles
aro alike in tho different articles
and is the very latest. They were
selected in this way so that pur
chasers, if the' so wish, may make
up their silver set without having
a lot of odd prices.
We have replenished our slock
of.ptated ware and jean offer you
now a very full line iu all tho ar
ticles used on the table. The
manufacturers of Plated-ware
come as near giving imitations of
tho solid article as it is possible
for them to be made. Tho price
tolls the difference.
We call your attention to tho
most complete assortment of flower
vases in white and handsomely
decorated Colored Glass-ware that
we havo ever shown. Tho shapes
are captivating and the price
"fetching," We don't expect these
to lemain in stock but a short
