A POOR POLICY.
The marshal is not pursuing a
wise policy in the matter of the
alleged conspiracies. Let us for
the sake of argument admit that
there is trouble ahead and that
an uprising may take place at
some future date. According to
the letter of the law a criminal
act is contemplated and the per
petrators are criminals in the eye
of the law. Why not then call
in the services of the detective
bureau aud leave it to that branch
of the police department to ferret
out the conspiracies and appre
hend the traitors.
Captain Larson we are told has
made a success since he was ap
pointed chief of the detective
force. If wo are rightly informed
it was through him that the gov
ernment received information of
the last "uprising," which was
still-born. If ho is to bo trusted,
lot him do the business for which
ho i paid. If not, firo him out
und if thore is no proper material
to bo found in Hawaii, import an
experienced and honorable de
tective. Tho system of spies is the ruin
of tho countrj. We can assure
Messrs. Smith and Hitchcock
that tho spying and sneaking
scoundrels now in the pay of the
government havo dono more to
make the ropublic unpopular and
hated than has any other ef tho
tyrannical measures of our mis
sionary oligarchy. j
Every law abiding-citizens res- i
peels a detective, i.e., a man who
dovoto his tirao to bring crime
home and carry tho criminals to
tho bar .of justice. A spy is an
tilterly-dffTorcnt subjoct. No jury
will listen to the words of a man
who under the mask of friend
ship leads a fellow citizen on to
crime and then basely turns in
former. " Tho government will realizo
that fact whon tho cases against
Bush and Nawahi are being aired
before a jury,
And if -the Attorney - general
thiuks that tho hostile feelings
against spioS only prevail among
tho members of tho opposition
ho is very much mistaken.

approve of the vilo system of
espionage now carried on by tho
Marshal. Let the regular police
force attend to their business and
if it is worthjfiny thing the .citi
mbs and the government will be
protected. The employment of
thieves, rascals, bunas and thugs
creates simply a feeling of "con

A NEW REPUBLIC.
Mr. E. S. Cunha has always
been a good republican and a i
missionary. Although he doesu't ;
belong to the church he has done j
his hesl to brine his Central .
Union into touch with tbo Cen
tral Union of Jones & Co. He
has had special prayers offered
and circnlhted in print for the
benefit of the ruling powers, here
and above, and he has shown his
allegiance and loyalty to the
Dole combination by naming his
new building on King Street
People around town were gen
erally surprised when they saw
the inscription on the new struc
ture and they wondered what
could be the matter.
The builder Fred. Harrison
was seen this morning. He sim
ply smiled and said: "It takes a
good Royalist to build up a 're
public' I am doing the job. "
Cunha looked sad and swore
that he was surprised to hear
bis loyalty to the republic
-Why," he Baid, "I have done
everything to remember the good
work of my friend Sereno,
Stevens and tho other pirates. I
call my building, The Republic,
just as Waterhouse calls his "The
Qnben" on Nuuanu street. Mine,
may be a tinpot republic. But
yi u bet it is there and it will
stay long after tho "other" re
public has disappeared. Dc you
want to rent, a store ?
In the meantime "the new re
public" is going up and in two
months tho finishing touch will
havo been administered.
Thon Cunha mav take down
ho sign and call his magnificent
block by some other and, then,
more appropriate nanio.
ANOTHER LIE !

English have to be stamped as

that Mr. Kiln, or whatever his
namo may bo, has nothing to
"give away'' and that ho conse
quently has been unabl6 to fur

The object of the lie, as pub
lished in the Advertiser, is plain
enough. It is another attempt of
scaring and pumping.
Now, let us tell the government
once for all, that 200 'KilasM or

The fact remains that the Opera
House in Honolulu is under the
sole management of Ii. J. Levey.
A representative of this paper
called on Mr. W. G. Irwin the
proprietor of the theater and learn
ed from him that Mr. Dailey
had no right whatever to
advertise himself as the
lessee of the Hawaiian Opera
House ilr. Irwin itaUd that
Dailey or any other theatrical
manager was welcome to the
house as long as tney brought a
decent compai.y here. All ar
rangement should be made through
L. J. Lsvey. W. G. Irwin is not
in the show-business.
The refusal of the Jfusic and
Drama to publish Levey's letter
does not show favorably to that
Mr. Dailey haB indulged in lan
guage against Levey that no decent
journal tfould tolerate. The re
fusal to publish an answer shows
exactly what can be expected of a
semi-civilized literary journal,
fitted only to be read and used in
street in San Francisco.
A SAD MAN.
Fred Harrison is a sad man.
And ho has reason to be so.
Cunha has engaged him to build
up a new republic and he has
done so. But that isn't all.
Fred, had to apply to the mar
shal for an extra spy and he will
probably ha-re a guard within a
few days for the purpose of
"holding' the republic. If the
proprietors of Dole's republic are
in a state of constant fear and
Clamoring for succor, why should
not Harrison havo his republic
protected and defended against
thieves, royalists, and Advertiser
editorials? All of these are apt
to do away with any republic.
And to fill the cup of misery,
Fred got a boy. A regular mis
sionary boy born on a Sunday.
We congratulate him as a father,
but we suggest to him to, take the
Sunday business out of the kid
To be succesful in building a
"republic" and a boy at the same
time is probably nil that any or
dinary Englishman can do.
And yet Fred Harrison looks
unconcerned and "to the front"

English Opinions on' the War.
It will be remembered that two
or three months ago the Spectator
told us that national feeling was
an almost unknown quality in the
East, and that an ann- of 10,000
Chinese landing at Nagasaki,
could conquer Japan without any
appreciable difficulty. It has
now found out its mistake, and
recognizes that the strong nation
al feeling of Japan, manipulating
European armaments with Europ
ean skill . mukes her a truly form
idable power.. The Spectator is
not altogether pleased with the
prospect. Hitherto war in Asia
has been war with limited liabil
ity; undertaken when necessary
without fear, and without a
thought of reprisals. But now
in all future operations in East
ern Asia, "Japan must be reck
oned with as if tho people were
white men. Japan caunot be
coerced, or even bullied any
more, for no Power could attack
her without all the labour and
espenso and risk which would
attend a European campaign."
An ingenous avowal of the gospel
of colour; but one that we are
-s6moJlrt5iIpris-l- -to ftmJ itr
the columns of-the humanitarian
Spectator. One of the most glor
ious elements in the glorious des
tiny of "'white mou." lies, it ap
pears, in their ability to coerce
or to bully Jwith impunity "yel
low men,'' and it is to be a mat
ter for grief to the "whites" that
a race of ''yellows" s now in a
position to strike back. The at
titude of The Times, that of wel
coming a new - comer into the
hierarchy of civilized nations,
seems to us much more in accord
ance with the. principles that one
of these nations ought to profess.
The Economist, in an able and
teuiperafe .article, examines the
situation from the point of view
of the Euroeau trader aud the
European tai payer. What such
desire is, of course, peace, as
speedily as! possible and upon
moderate terms. Whichever way
the war ends, it is not, thinks this
paper,- likely to be in any way
advantageous to Europeans. If
the Chinese', should win, they
would probably demand an in
demnity from Japan, and would
for years after be less ready to
glisten to European remonstrances.
On the otier hand, if Japan
should gain a complete victory,
a new, power would have been
born, which would compel the
greatPowen to increase the cost
ly fleets the; already maintain in
the farther! Pacific. Japan, too,
would for sone time be a heady
and excitable State, ready for
fresh advenfares, and not disin
clined, perhtps, to ally herself
firmly with s3me European Pow
er in order to undertake some
enterprise o! the greatest mo
ment. She vill in fact try to be
come a conquering powor, and
dependencies to govern. That
would not be to the advantage of
any European country, or of gen
eral civilizatjon, and might in
deed seriously hamper Europe in
keeping onfer in Asia, a task
which sho accomplishes at pres
ent with very little expense to
herself. Jaan MaiL

If we are to judge the popu
larity of an article by the number
in actual use Haviland 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," tho
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.
