The statements we have recently
made concerning the death rate in
Honolulu and the Muli&tics by which'
those statements were fortified
appear to have caused considerable
annoyance to the powers that be.
This is quite natural, and it is equal
ly natural that the journal support
ing the Government should try to
break tlte force of our remarks. The
manner of doing so, however, is
thoroughly silly, unless indeed wc
suppose' as the Adcertiser people
seem to do, that their leaders never
look into any other paper and are
( prcpatcd to accept with unquestion
ing faith, any fiction, however wild,
which that journal may sec lit to
print. On no other supposition can
we explain the barefaced attempt to
account for the discrepancy between
the llgurcs of the Boards of Kduca
tion and Health, by assertiug that
tho former included the deaths in
the small pox hospital and the latter
did not. This statement is absolutely
and unqiialilicdly false. The returns
of the Hoard of Health did include
all the deaths fioni bmall pox which
occurred in thi district, s-o far as
the same weic known to the agent, of
the Hoard. They wore 270 in num
ber. Of these, 201 died in the
hospital, according to the records of
that institution, and the icmaiuder
died outside. Fmlhcruiorc, tho
year J881 was not (outside of .small
pox) an exceptionally unhealthy
year in any way. The idea that it
was so. i cats solely upon the unsup
ported assertion of tho Advcrtimr.
There is not a particle of proof that
such was the case and none can bo
produced. Those statements of that
paper either display the giossest
ignorance of the matter under dis
cussion, or else they arc wilful
fabrications. The Health editor is
atlibcity to sit upon either hoin
of the dilemma he may prefer.
The rumor that a Confederate flag
was hoisted on the Capitol at At
lanta, Georgia, upon the receipt of
news of tho Democratic triumph, has
been denounced as "a base and
malicious falsehood," in a despatch
of Nov. 10th, from a member of the
Democratic national committee at
Augusta, who adds: " On the con
trary there were over 3,000 United
States Federal flags sold in Atlanta
on the day of election. Every house
has a Federal flag flying. Not a
Confederate flag has been seen in
Atlanta during or since the cam
paign." " In tho .Supremo Court, at Mont
real, Judge Sicottc ordered fines of
8800 or imprisonment for two years
to bo imposed upon L. A. Senccal,
President, of the North Shore Kail
way, for unblushing bribery in the
last election." Senccal has been
called the " railway kins " df Qitc-
bec. A few years ago he was a
' bankrupt merchant of Montreal.
Hcing a masterly politician, ho in
duced the Ministry of Quebec, in an
hour of financial need, to sell him a
valuable railway the Quebec, Mon
treal, Ottawa and Occidental for
about half what it cost, and then
sold its bonds in Paris for about
double what ho paid for It, thus
becoming a millionnaire at ono
bound. It is crcditablo to the admin-
istratlon of justice in Canada that
such an adroit schemer, wealthy ns
ho is from his ill gotten gains, can
bo brought up so sharply in his
career as tho above, which is clipped
from the despatches to n California
" According to the most recent
statistics the population of Mexico
is now 10,000,000, and thcie arc
M0 cities, ;t72 towns, -1,370 villages,
fi missions, 5,G89 haciendas and
M,605 ranches, besides 2,213 col
lections of groups of houses, tabu
lated as congregations, barrios,
ranchcrias, etc. The value of pri
vate real estate, rural, is $773,000,
000; private real estate in cities,
82,f)C8,0.'10,000 ; cattle of all kinds
belonging to individuals, S120,000,
000 ; property belonging to the na
tion, 210,000,000; the total real
estate, not including mines, coasts,
bays, lakes, rivers, etc., being $3,
518,000,000. The agricultural pro
ducts arc valued at 177,151,080,
and the industrial products jit M,
000,000." Tho foregoing is clipped
from a recent American paper. It
is impossible, of course, to foresee
the advantages to this country of
having reciprocal trade relations
with a neighboring country of ten
million people, and of vast icsourccs.
To lcccive the benefit wc ought from
such a compact, however, it is neces
sary that our exportable products
should be greatly diversified. Wc
cannot sell Mexico sugar and bana
nas. There is a strong impression in
Washington, even among leading
Democrats, that Mr. Cleveland will
make but few changes in- the public
offices. He is regarded as an earnest
civil service reformer, and it is be
lieved that within a year Democrats
who arc after the spoils will be at
vaiiancc with him, but that he will
be sustained by a majority of the
part', lie has placed himself in a
position that will enable him to carry
out a firm policy in any matter upon
which Ills views arc especially pro
nounced, as in his letter of accept
ance lie said that he was in favor of
limiting the Presidential term to four
years and implied that he was not a
candidate for a second term. The
real estate agents of Washington
are manifesting no anxiety as to
fluctuations of the market in conse
quence of changes in the civil ser
vice. A large propoilion of the
clerks have been spending all they
made, and of the higher officials
who own real estate it is anticipated
that those who feel apprehensive of
dismissal will quietly dispose of their
propct ty before the fourth of March.
Some of the agents arc among those
who believe that Cleveland will re
tain the services of good men
whet ever he finds them.

The services at Fort Street Church
were of nn exceedingly interesting
nature, conducted upon a well
arranged programme, as follows:
First there was an organ voluntary
reudcicd with skill and taste by Mrs.
A. F. .Itidd. This was followed by
the Doxology, sang by the choir and
congregation. Pastor Cruzan then
uttered a solemn invocation of
Divine favor, which was followed by
an appropriate response from the
choir. President Arthur's pro
clamation'of Thanksgiving Day was
read by the Rev. Dr. Damon, and n
hymn sung with much power by tho
large congregation led by tho choir
came between this reading and that
of a portion of Scripture by the Rev.
A. O. Forbes. An anthem, "O
Loid, how manifold aie thy works,"
was sung by the choir, and the Rev.
ij: iiytic oitcreit up prayer, in
which tho great blessings and privi
leges vouchsafed to tho American
nation iu the past were acknow
ledged, and the guiding hand of
Providence in tho recent political
contest recognized, with the expres
sion of a belief that all 'would bo for
the best in the end, however much
some of the people might in their
haste regard tho issue as only dis
astrous. A response by the choir
was then succeeded by a hymn sung
by the choir and congregation, after
which nn able Thanksgiving sermon
was preached by the Row K. C.
Oggel. Tho national hymn, "My
Country, 'tis of llico," was sung
with thrilling effect by choir and
congregation, and tho Rev. Mr.
Cruzan brought tho proceedings to a
close with a prayer of thanksgiving
and the benediction.
Mr. Oggcl took for his text tho
15th and lGth verses of the 13th
chapter of llobrcws: "By him
tlioreforo let us offer the sacrifice of
praise to God continually, that is,
with the fruit of our lips giving
thanks to his name. And to do good
and to communicate forget npt, for
with such sacrifice God is well
pleased." He opened by quoting a
tribute of Addison to tho virttto of
gratitude, and said thankfulness was
not ti talent, but a disposition to bo
wisely and carofully cultivated.
Willie it was fight and a duly for
individuals and families to daily
manifest their thankfulness to the
Giver of all Good for all I113 bene
fits, yet it was exceedingly appro
priate that there should be such a
day as this one set apart to make
national acknowledgment of Divine
favor to tho nation. They could ic
joico that their nation was a Chris
tian one. A large propoilion of its
public servants were men guided by
religion and morality. As to the
occasion of nationnl thanksgiving,
he said it would hardly be possible
to take an inventory of all their
blessings. He would, however, clas
sify them generally under three divi
sions. The first was, "Life and its
attendant blessings," and in enlarg
ing upon this tho preacher referred
to the immunity of the American
nation during tho year front pestil
ence, war and earthquake, all of
which had visited certain other parts
of tho world. The second divisiou
was, "Our educational agencies,"
treating which he spoke of the great
facilities the American youth had for
acquiring a thorough education, so
that there was nothing in that res
pect to baf the way of any boy to
the highest scat of government. lie
also referred to the excellent Chris
tian schools of Honolulu, and paid a
high tribute to their laic royal patron,
Mrs. Bishop. As one of the most
powerful educative influences of the
ago was the press, which was one of
our greatest blessings to the extent
that it was devoted to justice, righte
ousness and truth. The final divi
sion was, "Religion and its bless
ings," in regard to which ho urged
that for all their teligious privileges
they should prove their gratitude
by making their aim, "Hawaii for
Christ." Under the second portion
of the text "and to do good and to
communicate forget not" the
preacher spoke briolly upon true
Christian benevolence, at this sea
son and at all limes, being one of
the most noble evidences of grati
tude. He closed by a warm tribute
to the two ladies who had just conic
here upon labors of love to the com
munity. The audience almost filled the
church, and comprised many of the
most prominent citizens of American
nationality alid origin.

The special Thanksgiving Service
at the above church this morning, at
1 1 o'clock, was not attended by a
very large congregation. No deco
rations had been prepared. The
service, which was fully choral, was
intoned by the Revs. Alex. Mackin
tosh and W. A. Swan, tiie Rev. Geo.
Wallace reading the lessons. The'
sermon was preached by the Right
Rev. tho Bishop, taking his text
from the sixty-fifth psalm, ninth
verse, "Thou visitest tho cartli and
blcssest it: thou makest it very
plenteous." The following was the
order of the music : Organ volun
