FRIDAY, DEC. 19, 1890.
The welcome reception which
our eight-page daily edition has re
ceived from subscribes and adver
tising patrons alike is very pleasing
and complimentary to the Bulletin.
It is perhps needless to say that
this is the first eight-pnge daily
newspaper ever issued in these isl
ands, although several quarto
weekly papers of eight and even ten
pages have long been in existence.
The quantity and amount J inter
esting matter published in the Daily
Bulletin since enlargement gives
our patrons equal chances for dis
playing their advertisements. In
fact it was before impossible to get
all the advertisements offered us
into a four-page edition, as the pre
sent number of advertisements,
some thirty-three columns daily,
amply testifies. Of course it is not
expected this rush of advertise
ments will be all continued after the
holidnys.but at the same time wo shall
endeavor to offer sufficient induce
ments to our patrons to make it pay
them to advertise hereafter upon an
enlaiged scale in botli the Daily
Bulletin and our new weekly edition.
All may not have noticed that our
eight-page daily has had the column
l tiles increased in length by an inch
or more, which will give consider
able more room to advertisers at the
same rates. In a few days we shall
be able to mako further announce
ment of the new attractions and im
ptovements which will be added per
manently to the daily and weekly
Bulletin, on and after the first of
To correct both at home and
abroad all misrepresentation of Ha
waiian affairs, either purposely or
inadvertently made in our public
prints, is one of the tasks the Bulle
tin has undertaken to accomplish.
We have so far succeeded in modi
fying the virulent political misre
presentations of the unuciupulous
Advertiser anil tho incorrigible
Friend, and have now to correct a
similar short-coming from an unex
pected quarter. We refer to certain
statements used editorially in the Ha
waiian Annual for 1891'.

Its uloao without Hawaii having
experienced thu disinters nhleli the
political outlook nl its opening seem
ed to Indicate." Those rending the
entire article will of rourso see thai
the editor in innkiug this slatotncttt
was only preparing to cat n large
dish of political "crow," as in
the untruthful statement immedi
ately following, hut this is no excuse
for misrepresentations in a publica
tion which is presumed to confine
itself to historical facts, rather than
to partisan arguments. The state
ment referred to is one of the unful
tilled prophecies of the defeated mid
disgruntled lenders of the latclloform
party. It is quite true the disap
pointed politicians of the late regime
used every means to fulfill the pro
phecy and bring about political dis
turbances, which would end In
disaster to the commercial interests
of the country. It is also true that
the political outlook, to all conserva
tive citizens and well-wishers of
Hawaii, after the result of the late
election became known, was one
pointing out the return of pence and
material prosperity to the Kingdom,
so sadly shattered by the illegal and
unconstitutional methods of 1887.
The falsity of the statement in
question is in fact contradicted in
the article itself by the admission
of continued prosperity. As pointed
out the cntiic article is a full dish
of political "crow;" and while such
statements would do little injury at
home where the authors of such
little journalistic eccentricities are
well known, they are calculated to
misiepresent and injure us abroad.
Secondly, and more easily dis
posed of because of its absolute
untruth, is the following statement:
"The general elections in February
resulted in defeat of the reform
party throughout Oaku, but victory
on the other islands." (Sic.) This
assertion is false in as far as the
victory of the Reform party on the
other islands was only partial, as
the election returns printed in the
Annual itself, as well as the forced
expulsion of the late Reform Cab
inet and the working majority of the
National party in the Legislature
ail show. The statement in the
Annual is a repetition in another
form of the claim of victory made
by the Advertiser until the death
blow of the Reform party, as a revo
lutionary bod', was finalhy dealt on
the 13th of last June, when tho late
Ministry resigned, after defeat on a
trumped up amendment made by
one of their party, because they
dared not face the original resolu
tion of vote of want of confidence.
These facts cannot be'too often em
phasized, as some of the same Re
form politicians and their apologists
are only watching their chance to
again sacrifice the prosperity of the
kingdom to a renewal of their poli
Our esteemed monthly contempo
rary, the Paradise of the Pacific, is
out with a splendid Christmas num
ber. The present issue clearly
shows the enterprise of the new
management. The Paradise 'is cer
tainly keeping abreast with the
times. The number is finely and
fully illustrated, and upon its ap
pearance yesterday was a genuine
surprise to everybody. It contains
besides the usual interesting edito
rial and descriptive matter ten beau
tiful lithographs of Hawaiian scen
ery and buildings and two very good
cuts, one a view of Pearl Harbor
and the other of a rice plantation on
the Oahu Railway. The Paradise is
doing good work for the country and
we heartily wish it a continuance of
the success it lias thus far wou and
