The sale of considerable blocks of

tial premiums does not look as if
confidence in tho financial stability
of tiie country had expired.

Tho Dui.iXTiN is attracting the at

Within about u mouth it has received
letters and postcards from German',
France and Holland, asking for
advertising rates, information re

Among others was an autograph note

friend of his in Paris as special cor
respondent of tliiB journal.
ttcforc the general public will know
It, there will have been a substantial
Increase in the industries of this
country. Many sugar planters are
planting largo areas of gulch lands
in coffee. Two fruit-raising compa
nies have lately been si ailed in Hono
lulu, and there is a decided increase
of interest in fruit-growing among
people with moderate moans for in
vestment. Should the UatnaUua ir
rigation scheme be brought to suc
cess, and the Queen's crown lauds
settlement succeed as it promises,
the island of Hawaii would show as
well in the dawning era of diversified
industries ns it has done throughout
the booming sugar period.
lva Leo, while endorsing the secret
ballot used in the late election, docs
not think it right that a ballot should
be rejected merely because it is
.inaiked to the left of the names
voted for, or with an "O" instead of
an "X". This strictness objected
to is of the very essence of the
secrecy intended. If marking names
according to caprice were allowed,
whole rafts of votes might be identi
fied by peculiarities, cither in shape
or situation, of the mark. Thus
bribery or intimidation would be
facilitated to an incalculable extent.
The great ditliculty at the late elec
tion was in the form of ballot used.
It lacked the specific spaces for
marking provided in the genuine
Australian ballot. With such spaces
and sample ballots published in ad
vance, anybody who could not mark
his ballot intelligently should deserve
to lose his vote.
The p'ess news from Washington
State, that a small vessel had left
there with a cargo of opium for
Honolulu, is, according to advices
received by the authorities heic,
correct. Perhaps the smuggling
syndicate may, however, find it
harder to land the stuff now than
when their business was in infancy.
It is to be hoped they will be com
pletely balked. Thc'dilllculty and
expense of guauling our coasts have
greatly strengthened the argument
for opium licensing, notwithstand
ing the certainty of the change's
producing destruction among the
natives and demoralization to
plantation labor. If the smug
glers are only effectually stood off,
if not entrapped in the meshes
of justice, long enough to make their
game not worth the candle, there
would be no sullieient reason for
legalizing the tralllc. The Liberal
party is pledged to license, and, per
haps, it is as fortunate with regard
to this as with regard to other items
of its election program, that the
party has not been given power to
fulfil its pledges. At all events the
Legislature should look at the ques
tion from all sides and not be pre
cipitate in action.
LETTER FROM MR. STONE.
Editor Bulletin :
The P. C. Advertiser appeared
this morning with the name of your
humble servant in large type and in
the Police Court. The suit 1 faced
yesterday morning was as malicious
as the party that furnished the re
port to the Advertiser and had it
printed. The roadway past my cot
tage has been locked for months, so
that 1 could not get to my door in a
hack or with a load of wood. Yester
day morning I forced the lock and
was told if 1 did, I should bo arrest
ed, and so I was but strange to say
under the charge of common nui
sance. The witnesses were all inter
ested parties, being tenants of the
party that locked that gate. The
paity that made the complaint goes
by the name of Bachellcr, it used to
be Warren. She used to sell beer up
by the mite bridge. All old resi
dents and many new ones know
her. If to have been seen by this
patty without an overcoat on is half
as distressing as it is to myself, I
would take this oppoitunity to pub
licly apologize for the accident. No
thing but a residence a mile from
their virtuous home will satisfy me
in the future. By inserting this re
ply to what appeared in the Adver
tiser, the Bulletin will greatly ob

HEW YORK LIFE,
Vlntllrntlnn of n rM Mfrt Iiinuv
Mr. William II. Beers, President
of thq. Now York Insurance Com
pany, lias published a statement of
the affaiis of that corporation for
the infoi malion of policy-holders.
This statement was telegraphed in
full from New York to the San Kinu
cisco papers, in which it occupies
over live columns ol fine type
President iJcorn refers to the in
vestigation made by the IiiMiiance
Depaitmont of the State of New
York, which was undertaken at the
request of the company, on account
of charues that had been made
against it and its management in the I
public press growing out of matters
connected with its Spanish American
department. These charges havii.g
been cabled to the President while
in London, he cabled In response
'iiggesting that tho Insurance De
partment be invited, in the public in
terests, to make an examination of
the company for the satisfaction of
any policy holders who might be dis
turbed by these charges and criti
cisms. According to request, on June 22,
181)1, the Insurance Department, was
placed in charge of the books, rec
ords, etc., of the company and re
mained in charge until January t,
1892. The President's statement
just issued reviews the findings of
the Department in detail, including
that on the Spanish-American affair.
In this it is shown that the loss on
account of Agent Merzbachcr's do
ings lias been reduced to a little over
S 150,000, for which the company
holds abundant security. The fol
lowing is the last paingraph in Presi
dent Beets' statement:
"In conclusion, let me say when
my ollicial relations with the New
York Life Insurance Company began
twenty-nine years ago its assets, af
ter eighteen years of existence, were
less than S2,000.000, and its surplus
less than $200,000. Its history since,
its olllcially determined assets June
30ih last of 120,000,000, its $1,
000,000 in surplus, and its annual
income of over 830,000,000, I su li
mit to your impartial judgment as'
the achievements of my associates
and myself during the administration
of our trust."
The elation of the company over
its triumphant vindication is shared
by the general agents, who are dis
tributing heaps of information as to
the olllcially declared status of the
concern. The New York Times,
which led in the criticism of the com
pany, as well as surpassed all rivals
in vindictive bitterness, had not the
decency to suspend its campaign
pending the ollicial investigation.
Should the coinpan' prosecute the
Times for libel that journal, which
lias been practically without a head
since the death of its honored pro
prietor, Mr. Jones, will perhaps find
itself, to use a slang expression, "in
Any further information on the,
affairs of the company can be ob
tained by the large number of its
policy-holders in these islands from
