SATURDAY, AUG. 17, 1889.
The Second Battalion of Volun
teers has been disbaudod. Some of
the oflicers and men were actively
concerned in the lecent outbreak,
while a large proportion failed to
respond, to the call of the Govern
ment on that occasion. Eight ofli
cers including the Held, 9taff, and
certain of the line and twenty-two
privates are discharged honorably,
with permissiou to retain their uni
forms and equipments, in recogni
tion of their fidelity to duty at the
critical juncture. For years past
the drill meetings of the native mili
tia have been used by unscrupu
lous politicians as the opportunity
for sowing race prejudice in the
minds of the men. This mischiev
ous work has come to a different
end from that anticipated by its
Iy JnlUeo !i
1 have just como down from the
runchbowl orator, whither I run to
hldo when the Wilcox cannon began
shooting. Although not uvor.se to
taking a chnucc of dying for my
country, 1 want to be sure- llrat that
it is not being saved only to become
a Chinese ptovlnce.
It is believed that the object AVik
cos and bis chief abettoit held up
to tins natives was that of restoring
his old power to the King. They
trusted in that case, doubtless, that
the King would reciprocate the
faTor. They expected to ride upon
horses, to sport gold chains, to wear
patent leather slippers and suits of
immaculate white, and to live on
the Palace stores of good things.
What the rewards of their dupes
weic going to be they probably
thought it not worth while to men
tion. Before the natives listen to
counsel against the present system
of government, thc3' should sitdown
alone and ask themselves: "Are we
any worse off since part of the
King's power was taken away, and,
if to, is it on account of his power
having been cut down?"

The IJxccuUvc Special Agent of the Mutual l.lfo Insurance Company
having deemed it advisable to publish comparative statements between
the Equitable nnd Mutual Life Insurance Companies, the undersigned Gen
eral Special Executive Agent of the New York Life Insurance Co. for the
Hawaiian Islands, deems it his duly towards the many policy holders and
the public in general to lav before them the following comparative state
ment of the itemized reports of the NEW YORK LIFE jnd the
MU1TAL LIFE for the year 1888, filed with the Insurance Department
of the State of Sew Yoik:

The natives should bo reminded
systematically, from the platform
and through their press, that the
movement of 1SS7 was not against
their chief nor themselves. The
forefather.-) of the haoles who carried
out that revolution had mightier and
more prolonged struggles, shedding
rivers of blood and -aeriIieing mil
lions of wealth, to obtain for them
selves and their children natural
human rights and freedom from the
blasphemous doctrine of the divine
right of kings to U3e their people
for their own ends. The weakest
part of the Reform course through
out has been where its leaders have
supposed it strongest. That is, they
have shown the .might too much
without taking pains to make clear
the itn.nr to the natives, who, al
though benefiting equally with the
foreigner in the change of national
policy, could only see the manifesta
tion of ioicc and superior tactics
securing anu maintaining iuc revo
lution. Educative and conciliatory
im-asuies might have been adopted
which should have prevented Wil
cox and Boyd from obtaining the
following of a corporal's guard. Let
such means yet be employed to
restore the good feeling between the
races now twice disturbed within
little more than two vears.

Specimens of the inter-island cable
shown in town arc believed by some
to be a very tlimsy article. It ' is
claimed, however, by the company
to be the kind of cable most favored
at present by the transatlantic com
panies. Besides, the shore sections
arc well armored. The company
will have to maintain the line in
good working order to make any
thing out of it, for there is not
enough in the subsidy to maks a
job out of the construction. The
whole subsicty is 825,000. of which
$8,000 is payable when the line is in
good working order between Oaliu
and. Maui, 88,000 when similarly
efficient betweun Oahu and Hawaii,
and 9,000 on the completion of the
line between Oahu and Kauai. So
annual subsidy is provided for the
maintenance, and the exclusive fran
chise is for ten years.
1 hope that when the permanent
schedule of time for the stieet cars
is adopted, it will affoid connections
at the intersections of different
lines. This would assuredly bring
more traffic to the system. Citizens'
movements are not altogether on the
direct lines of the several car routes.
People living toward different ends
of a particular line have friends to
visit or business to transact along
other lines. Any well-regulated
street car system makes connections
at line crossings and junctions. If
such be not done here our extensive
system of. lails is much less of a
public accommodation than appears
by the plan of track.

The tension between Germany
and Switzerland had increased at
last accounts. Sotice had been
given to the Swi-s IJundesialh of
the intention of the German Gov
ernment to terminate, on July 20,
1890, the Swiss-German treaty dated
April 27, 1870. This action was
due to the difference between the
two Governments in regard to Ger
many's demand, among other things,
of the privilege of maintaining secret
detectives in Switzerland for watch
ing the Socialists. "Meanwhile," a.
despatch saya, "the luggage of all
travelers crossing the Swiss frontier
into Germany is being subjected to
a. most rigorous inquisition by Ger
man customs officials, a measure of
which, the Get man papers are com
plaining as injuring Germany's, own
interests by driving foreign passen
gers tp avoid Germany altogether,
nnd to travel to and from Switzer
land only by way of Franco, Aus
tria and Italy."
Satisfactory arrangements have
been made for the construction of
the Hudson Kay Hailway. jj

CHANCES OF POSITION SINCE 1878.
flu l77-'78 the Sew York Life's Sew Uusiness was l-',oao,u.i Liess
than the Mutual's.
In 1887-88 the S"ew York Life's Sew Business was 858,781,882 More
than the Mutual's.
fin l877-'78 the Sew York Life's Total Income was S21,5Jo,3l Less
than the Mutual's.
In l87-'88 the Sew York Life's Total Income was $2,873,830 Less
limn the Mutual's.
1877 and 178 the Sew York Life's Ratio of Death-Losses and Kx
ponscs to Income was 9.52 per cent. More than the Mutual's.
In 1887 and 1888 tho Sew York Life's Katio ol lJeatn i.osyes anu us-
l penges to Income was 9.88 per cent. Less than the Mutual's.
NOTE ON GAINS IN SURPLUS.
Of the Mutual Life's Gain in Surplus, nearly one-half (S710.10G) came
from profits ci edited to "Piofits on bonds, btoekh, or real estate sold, contin
gent guarantee account." The Mutual Life's dividends paid were
502,315 (18.93 per cent.) less in 1888 than in 1887. Its surplus earned
was 298,930 Ies3 than the Sew-Yoik Life's, on larger nssets and more in
surance. Tho Mutual Lilc has been issuing Five-Year Dividend Policies since
1881, and Ten, Fifteen, and Twenty-Year Distiibutiou Policies siuce 1880,
but as vet has made no apportionment of surplus thereon. The General
Surplus of the Sew-York Life is neatly as large as the Mutual Life's Total
Surplus, while the Sow-York Life has a Special Surplus of over Six Mil
lion dollars for Policies upon which dividends nro paid at the end of periods
of Ten, Fifteen and Twenty vears. The Mutual Life's Liabilities are
838,471,110 more thnn the Sew York Lifo'n.
1. The Sew-Yoik Life's Sew Business wns $21,073,097 (21 per
cunt.) moietlmu the Mutual's. Tho Sew-Yoik Life's KxVeiibes were
5555,507 less than tho Mutual's.
2. The Mutual Life's Mean Amount at ItUk was only seventeen per
cent, more than the Sow-York Life's, but the Mutual Life's l)cath-Lob!es
were nearly sixty-four per cent, moro than the Sew-York Life's.
3. The Sew York Life's Annuity Business is larger than that of nil
other American companies combined, As Annuities are tho opposite of
Insuiauces, it follows thai, in case- of a wide-spread epidemic, tho Sew
Yoik Life would suffer less than other companies, as n heavy death-rato
among annuitants would tend to offset a heavy death-rate among insures.
In conclusion I would say, I leave it to tho public, after a careful
perusal of the above figures, to iay whether tho Mutual Life Insuiance
Co. has to-day a claim to ndvertiso itself as the best Company paying
the largest dividends.
