Dr. Hyde read tho minutes of last

report of tho society, giving a brief
history of its organization and pro
gross. Tho most important ovont in
tho first yoar was tho gathering of
tho historical collection in tho build
ing of tho Honolulu Library aud
Heading Room Association, with
which body tho society had effected
a satisfactory arrangement of allilia
tion. Hon. "V. D. Aloxandor read his
report as Corresponding Secretary.
It stated that, immediately after the
organization of this society, letters
wore addressed to a number of gen
tlemen in other countries, interested
in Polynesian history and ethnology,
most of whom have since been elect
ed as corresuondinc: members, and
copies of this socioty's published
papors have since boon sent to them.
Tho Polynesian Society, organized
in New Zealand, sent them a frater
nal greeting in cordial terms, con
cluding, "We shall be happy to ex
change publications, and to asist
your society in any manner that wo
Major Dutton, U. S. A., after
thanking tho society for his election
as a corresponding member, saj-:
"My remembrances of the Hawaiian
Islands are a source of tho greatest
pleasure to .me, and my intorest in
all that concerns them grows deeper
with tho lap.-o of time, ft is well
that your society has been formed,
for there is no history better worth
preserving. It is not only a ro
mance, but an object lesion of tho
highest utility to all who may have
been so fortunate as to have studied
it whether thoy bo statesmen, econo
mists, or antiquarians. Every scrap
of Hawaiian history that can be dis
covered and verified, or rescued from
oblivion, is of permanent value to
trio -itM." loiter Major Dutton
submits a list of important topics
for investigation by the society.
In one of several letters received
from Mr. S. Percy Smith, Survevor-
Gonoral of Now Zealand and founder
of tho Polynesian Society, ho says:
"I hope some of tho Hawaiian mem
bo rs are going to contribute to tho
Journal, for 1 am very anxious to
prevent its becoming too local, for
which reason 1 am holding back a
long paper of my own on New Zea
land matters. If you look at the list
of our members, it will bo seen that
one-seventh of them are from your
parts, and yot wo have no papers
from any of them." Tho report says
Mr. Smith is an enthusiastic studont
of Polynesian ethnology, and has
discovered considerable now evi
dence connecting tho Maories with
tho natives of Kaiatoa and Hawaii
Corresponding members in tho
United States have sent most grati
fying expressions of interest in tho
objects of tho sociotj'. Mr. Otis
Mason, of tho Smithsonian Institute,
says: "Please tell mo how your His
torical Sociotj' is off in tho matter of
Smithsonian publications. Every
word 1 can learn about Hawaii is
most grateful." Mr. J. F. limine
well of Boston, in accepting tho
position of corresponding member,
says, "As some of my old ties with
the Islands part, it is pleasant to mo
to find a now association like this
Mention is also made of cordial
letters from Messrs. Austin, Bond
and Gilman of Boston, Mr. Gowor
of Now Haven, and Gon. Armstrong
of tho Hampton Institute. Mr.
Theo. H. Davios, whoso presence
was not expected at this meeting
when tho report was prepared, wrote
from England, "Evorything that
helps to connect mo with tho coun
try and tjio friends whore most of
my life has boon passed is a cause of

Hon. S. B. Dole, Justice of tho
Supremo Court, was introduced to
deliver an address on "Tho Evolution
of Hawaiian Land Titles." Ho be
gan in tho misty past of tradition,
when those islands woro peopled Im
migrations from othor groups.
From tho patriarchal system of land
tenure introduced by tho "pilgrim
fathers" of Hawaiian to tho feudal
system, the learned essayist led his
hearers. Tho feudal system culmin
ated in Kainehamoha tho Groat's
subjugation of all tho islands. Tho
I patriarchal period was tho industrial,
een tho golden age ot Hawaii, when
there was land as well as water
enough for all. It was then that
the great irrigation works, including
parallel canals, and tho largo fish
ponds remaining on Kauai to-day
woio constructed, although even tra
dition does not lecall their building.
Judge Dole recounted the various
advances made toward an equitable
land tenure from tho time of Ka
mehameha I., bringing in tho groat
land division of 1817, when tho terri
tory was about equally allotted to
King, Chiefs and People. So closely
jointed was the paper that a synop
sis would not do it justice. It will
be given to the public as ono of tho
Socioty's sorios, aud will bo well
woith any intelligent person's pro
curing and preserving.
Mr. Thuraton and Chief Justice
Judd were asked to intake remarks
but declined owing to tho lateness
of tho hour.
With a vote of thanks to the au
thor, the paper was ordored for
Mr. Theo. H. Davios humorously
ctedited the newspapers with giving
him a position as a speaker of tho
evening. Ho had got into tho habit
on this, visit of picking up the local
papers with soino trepidation, and
Saturday evening found himself bill
eted in the Bulletin for an addross.
This morning tho Advertiser had
improved on it by saying it was to
bo "a brief address." (Laughter.)
Ho felt a great deal of interest in
Hawaiian history, and wo make his
tory very fast horo just think of
the number of Cabinets made in a
fow weeks. (Laughter.) Ho had
been led to think ho was getting into
ancient history whon ho was asked
the other day, as a friond of tho Ha
waiians, to contribute to Kaumaka
pili church, which reminded him of
past days when ho had tho privilego
of subscribing to Kaumakapili
church about every month. (Laugh
ter.) Ho looked on this kingdom as
a working model and ho had, on be
ing consulted in England on the
opium question, been able to toll how
Chinese planting corporations hero
prevented airy of thoir members from
dealing in opium. It would be very
much to tho advantage of this place
it il was roganieu more as a woricmg
model, ami not expect from tho
iniuiaiure engivo tno services oi a
great leviathan. Decades horo woro
as centuries in larger countries. Tho
life of a mouso was as important to
it as that of an olophaut to itself.
Our little mistakes horo woro tele
graphed all over tho world, while
bigger mistakes made, say, in Brad
ford woro novor hoard of outsido.
The speaker roforred to tho interest
with which historical things horo
woro regarded abroad, instancing
the eagerness with which Mr. Keid

Mr. Bishop's Convorsion.
S. E. Bishop in his article on his
annexation scliomo says: "I havo not
myself until very recently, adopted
thoir views meauing annexation
ists; but, the manifest tendency of
events has latterly croated an irre
sistible purpose upon my mind to
admit that thoy aro in the right."
Just so, Mr. Bishop; wo can readily
understand that tho present cabinet
(3-our friends) being in power onco
more, restores back tho courago to
advocate (indirect) treasonable prin
ciples of annexation; which was
killed for the timo being, through
tho downfall of tho Thurston cabi
net, with its bayonot clauso treaty,
etc. Mr. Bishop will learn that be
fore Uncle Sam will take tho least
notice of annexation pleadings from
horo, thoy will havo to come from
the brown-skiunod natives tliom
selvos, not from white-skinned specu
lators. Tho natives, if true to thorn
solves, aro safo under thoir Hag from
Uncle Sam or anyone olso; but thoy
must bo wary of thoir false friends
with tho forked-toiurue. as thov will
always watch and bo on tho alort, to
deceive and defraud them, a la 1887,
Mr. Bishop in former letters would
have led tho people to boliovo that
ho was a friond of Hawaiians. 1
honestly and sincerely boliovo tho
Row S. E. Bishop to havo beoii a
friend to Hawaiians only whon it
paid him tho bettor to bo so.
Furthermore, I sincorely boliovo that
tho natives havo not had one true
advisor and friond among tho many
would-be leaders of our foul ana
rotton politics, white, brow or
black, since tho death of C son.
But God is good to tho weak, liiero
came to tho front tho good Samari
tan, an English gentleman in tho
person of Mr. Theo. H. Davios, who
grasped tho cudgol, and struck out
manfully against tho Philistine, for
tho rights of Hawaii; and may God
Almighty guide and protect him
through life for so doing, is tho
short, but sincere prayor of a hum
ble sinner. Ax American.

Dolton, of Luray, .Russell County,
Kansas, called at tho laboratory of
Chamberlain & Co., Des Moines, to
show them his six yoar old boy,
whoso life had been saved by Cham
berlain's Cough Hornedy, it having
cured him of a very sovoro attack of

saved his boy's life and is enthus
iastic in his praise of tho Homedy.

Here is an incident from the South
Mississippi, written in April, 1890,
just after the Grippe bad visited that
country. " I am a farmer, one of
those who have to rise early and
work late. At the beginning of last
Winter I was on a trip to the City
of Vicksburg, Miss, .where I got well
drenched in a shower of rain. I
went home and was soon after seized
with a dry, backing cough. This
grew worse every day, until I had
to seek relief. I consulted Dr. Dixon
who has since died, and he told me
to get a bottle of Boschee's German
Syrup. Meantime my cough grew
worse and worse and then the Grippe
came along and I caught that also
very severely. My condition then
compelled me to do something. I
got two bottles of German Syrup. I
began using them, and before taking
much of the second bottle, I was
entirely clear of the Cough that had
hung to me so long, the Grippe, and
all its bad effects. I felt tip-top and
have felt that way ever since."

A year ago not only the
tastes but the purses of the
people leaned toward massive
chandeliers with brass founts
elaborate and expensive. At
this time, with the "crash in
sugar," or not, according to
the opinions of different
correspondents, the purses
show a -tendency to enjoy
closer relations with something
Our stock of chandeliers is
admirably adapted to the
wants of the rich whose ex
checquors have experienced
no change, or to those people
whose circumstances warrant
retrenchment, But everybody
wants the maximum light at
the minimum price. We
appreciate the situation and
beginning with Monday, De
cember 5 th, we will offer you
an opportunity to get a two,
three or lour light chandelier
complete with chimneys,
globes, etc., at very reduced
prices, They are perfect in
every particular, neither store
worn or broken; but they have
glass instead of brass founts
and we want to sell them.
Times are going to be better
and we want additional room
for our stock of all-brass
chandeliers. lust now the
ceiling of our store room looks
like an inverted forest and we
want room floor room and
ceiling room and we are
willing to sacrafice twenty-five
percent on the price of these
goods to get it. A four-light
fellow that you would have
jumped at a year ago for $28
we will sell you this week for
$21. Another one with
twisted brass shank and arms,
colored globes, imperial burn
ers, goes to you at $15 it
was cheap at $20, six months
ago and it's just as good as
the other only it has three in
stead of four lights, quite
enough for a small room be
cause there's not so much
heat in it. A two-light chan
delier in brass, well suited for
a dining room will be sold at
13.50, another just as good
for 2. Colored globes and
Ai burners with each of them.
These goods have not been
marked up to suit this occasion
as you can see the selling tags
that have been on them for
the past six months slice off
25 percent and you have the
price you can buy them for
this week only. II you want
light this is the opportunity of
a life time to get it. The
