Sonntor G. D. Oilman of Massa
chusetts, a former rosidont of thoso
islands, give's another jag of a pin
into tho annexation bubblo blown in
Honolulu by ''carpet-bag politi
cians," as soino American pross
opinions fitly denominate tho
worthies who are trying to cry down
tho time-honored sentiment of inde
pendence in this Kingdom.
Francisco, Dee. 10, per S. S.
Tho President's Mossafjo.
Prosidout Harrison's roforouco to
Hawaii, in his last message to Con
gress, is short but sweet. Once
more and in stronger terms than
evor, tho Presidont urges on Con
gress tho importance of a cable to
thoso islands. Lot us hopo the re
commendation of tho lotiring Presi
dent will not fall upon deaf ears, al
though tho chances of anything bo
ing done by tho moribund Congress
aro not likob bright.
Tho British delegates to tho Urns
sols monetary conference aro report
ed to bo acting ugly in bohalf of tho
porpotuation of tho singlo gold stan
dard. If, as is insinuated, the- are
pursuing tho courso thoir Govern
ment intended them to, it may bo so
much worse for tho Government.
Contemporaneous nows from "homo"
is to tho effect that tho double stan
dard is to bo played for a winning
card b tho Conservatives against
Tho news given to-day later than
tho Sau Francisco files is highly in
teresting. Even if tho bill to ropeal
tho sugar bounty and restoro part of
tho duty formerly on raw sugar
should fail to pass this Congress, its
introduction will at least show tho
policy tho dominant party intends
to effect when it comes into com
plete control. Many American papers
argue that a half a cent a pound
duty will not increase tho price of
sugar to consumers, whilo it will
break tho trust's poworand material
I3' aid tho rovenuo.
Some of tho most eminent tariff
reformers in tho United States aro
calling for a special session of Con
gross to smash tho McKinloy Act.
What appears to bo a grave defect
of tho United States system is that
a Congress survives for a session
after tho pooplo have rendered a
verdict, perhaps, against tho policy
of tho congressional majorit'. Tho
Senators elected this fall, for in
stance, cannot take thoir seats for a
year unless a special session be
called between the close of tho pre
sent regular one and tho time for
tho next regular ono a year hence.
It is to bo hoped tho agitation for a
special session will prevail, as wo
have an interest in the speedy execu
tion of tho American peoplo's judgment.
There has been a tempest over tho
question of tho lady to bo tho model
of Montana's silver statue at tho
World's Fair. Miss Ada Rohan, tho
charming loading lady of Augustin
Daly's company of players, was se
lected. There was a howl at this
because Miss Rohan was a nativo of
Ireland and tho howl caused her to
bo dropped. At last accounts Mrs.
A. L. Beach, ono of Montana's own
fair daughters, was to bo tho model.
Sho is now living in Chicago. Man
ager J. M. Hill mado a suggestion
that seomod to please tho profession
als, which was to have a composito
statue of nine ladies nnmod, tho head
of tho statue to bo copied from
Lillian Russell. Ho leaves it to any
intelligent man if tho Venus do Milo
or Helen of Troy would havo had a
ghost of a show with such a statue.
No Prospects of Annexation.
State Senator Gorham D. Gilman
of Newton has received a letter from
a correspondent in tho Hawaiian
Islauds, under dato of November 9,
which effectually disposes of tho ro
cont press despatches, and so far as
oven an' approximate chance of an
nexation schemes aro concerned jf
thoro wore any thoir fulfilment is
indefinitely postponed. Any fears
of international trouble or difhculties
in connection with tho affairs of tho
islands may bo disinibbod for tho
present, the comploxion of tho cabi
net being decidedly more in sym
pathy with tho United States than
with Groat Britain. It has becomo
a custom among tho American resi
dents of tho islands to tako a ballot
among themselves on tho presiden
tial question. This ballot is taken
on tho samo day that tho election
occurs in tho United States, and on
November 8, 181)2, tho American resi
dents cast thoir votes as customar',
and tho result was in favor of G rover
Cleveland by a majority' of two.

HAWAIIAN CAM.B STItONOlA IHIUIUI.
President Harrison makes tho fol
lowing reference to Hawaii in his
message to Congress:
"Our relations with Hawaii havo
been audi as to attract an increased
interest and must continue to do so.
I deem it of great importance that
the projected submarine cable, a sur
vey for which has been made,
should be uromoted both for naval
and commercial uses. Wo should
have quick communication. We
bhould before this have availed our
selves of the concession made many
years ago to this (5oerninent for a
liarbor and naval station at Pearl
River. Many evidences of the
friendliness of the Hawaiian Govern
ment have been given in the past,
and it is gratifying to believe that
tho advantage and necessity of a
continuance of very close relations
On tho Nicaragua Canal matter
tho President says:
"1 repeat with great earnestness
tho recommendation, which 1 havo
made mention in previous messages,
to tho inadequate support given tho
American Company engaged in tho
construction of tho Nicaragua ship
canal. It is impossible to overstate
tho value from every standpoint of
this great enterprise, and 1 hopo
that there may be time given in this
Congress to give to it an impetus
that will insure tho early completion
of the canal and secure to tho United
States its proper relations to it when
Tho message strongly maintains
that the country has made great ad
vances in prosperity through tho
protection, policy. Tho President
recommends that tho whole subject
of tariff revision bo loft to tho next
Congress, saying "it would bo offens
ive to suggest that tho prevailing
par' will not carry into legislation
tho principles advocated by it and
tho pledges given to the people"
Ho deplores tho probability of in
jury to business from uncertainty as
to what changes tho dominant party
aro to make in tho tariff.
Tho relations with Canada, the
message says, must continue to bo
intimate and they should bo friend
ly. It regiets that t lie negotiations
with Great Britain for settlement of
disputes havo continuously been
thwaitcd by unreasonable and un
friendly objections .Mid protests
from Canada. Attention is called to
the guat advantages Canadian rail
ways enjoy, and the largo profits
they make, by thoir unrestricted
running into United States terri
tory. "It is hardlj too much to
say," tho message remarks, "that tho
Canadian Pacific and other railways
which parallel our northern bound
ary, aro sustained by commerce hav
ing either its origin, or tho origin
ators, or both, in tho United
States." The President recommends
consideration of tho question who
thor tho United States could not bo
mauo independent ot Uanada s
canals by tho construction of an Am
erican canal around tho Falls of
Niagara. Ho also says thoy should
withdraw tho support now given to
Canadian steamships and railways.
Tho President describes it as an
intolerable and disgraceful condi
tion of things that tho nation should
continue to maintain foreign steam
ships, man of them uudor contract
with thoir governments by which,
in timo of war, thoy would become a
part of their armed naval establish
ments. A wholesome change of
policy was begun by tho law of
.March 3, 1891, under which con
tracts havo been mado for eleven
mail routes. "As ono of tho good
results reached sixteen American
ships of an nggregato tonnago of
HT.'IOO tons, costing S7,-100,000, have
been built or contracted to bo built
in American shipj'ards. Tho esti
mated tonnage of all steamships re
quired under oxisting contracts is
105,802, and when tho full service re
quired by those contracts is estab
lished thoro will bo forty-ono mail
steamors under tho Amorican Hag,
with tho probability of further
necessary additions in tho Brazilian
and Argentine service. Tho con
tracts recently let for trans-Atlantic
service will result in thoconstiuc
tion of five ships of 10,000 tons each
costing )J000I()0() or $10,000,000, and
will add, with tho City of Now York
his home. Finally Mrs. Sloneman
wont to the hotel awl after a consul
tation vil! her husband returned
with him to their home. The Gen
eral's "disappearance" dates from
this time, and nobody in Los Angeles
can, or will, tell for a certainty
whether ho is dead or living. Mrs.
Sloneman says her husband is in the
Eastj for his health on medical ad
vice. She denies the authorship of
the love letters and says that having
reached the age of fifty she is not
making any conquests.
AM.KOK1I IlErniUCAN 'CONSriIlA0Y TO
I'AlTt'HB Tim SENATE.
Tho Democrats of the Senate aro
very much concerned about certain
publications which indicate that
there is an organized attempt tore
verse the will of the people as ex
pressed at tho late election. It was
understood by everybody until with
in tho last few days' that the Demo
crats had not only elected tho Presi
dent and Vice-President and a largo
majority of tho House of Represen
tatives, hut they would have a clear
majority in the Senate of tho United
States, thus enabling measures for
which tho Democratic party stood
in tho lato campaign 1o bo enacted
To the astonishment of all it was
found 1 hat an attempt to change the
political comploxion of the Legisla
ture in Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming
Montana, North Dakota, and Cali
fornia was seriously under way.
Plans were at once formulated 111
New York City to movent thesuc-
sands of thorn men, women and
children are. reduced almost to
starvation. Tho severity of tho
weather now prevailing adds to tho
distress. 'Application wns made to
a magistrate at Oldham for MO war
rants against operatives in arrears for
borough rates. The magistrate re
fused, and (old tho bailiff to apply
again when tho strike had ended.
Tho annual Conservative caucus
known as tho Union or Constitu
tional Association is about to open
at Sheffield. Party managers who
resisted the clamor of tho rank
and file for a protectionist platform
havo boon obliged to givo way.
Though at heart protectionists, tho
leaders fear tho adoption of protec
tion, as a definite party plank would
enable the Liberals to sweep tho
country at the next general election.

M1S.SI.NO HIS WIFE INVOLVED IN A
It is assorted in tho San Francisco
Examiner that General Stonemau,
ox-Govornor of California, has not
boon seen for a year and a half. Tho
wife of Judgo Anson Brunson of
Los Angeles has begun a suit for
divorce in tlio Superior Court, and
Mrs. Stonemau i.s a co-respondent
with tho .Judge. An intensely fond
letter is printed as asamploof many
to bo put in court as having been
written to Judgo Brunson by Mrs.
Stonoinan. There will bo a pilo of
hotel registers put in evidence that
will bt agger others besides tho clerk
of the court. Judge Brunson has
been respondent in twodivorco suits
boforo and is very angry over this
one. Detectives aro guarding his
house night and day. ''If I go down
a third time," ho baid, "1 will drag

It looks as if tho international
monetary conference in Brussels was
going to be a lizzie. Senator Jones
of Nevada was expected to wind up
tho debato on the Kith inst.

memorandum on the obstruction
offered by Great Britain to tho de
termination of questions boforo tho
conforonco if tho conference resumes
its sittings after a prolonged ad
journment. Such a protest is likely
to induce tho British Government to
present a decided policy through its
delegates acting in union thereon.
Tho present British" delegation ap
pears to havo boon sent purposely to
muddlo the proceedings. Tlieio is j
no cohesion among tlio British '
representatives, oither as to princi- !
pie or as to procedure.
J t lias been mado cJcar that the
British Government has purposely
avoided giving any instructions tend
ing to tlio common action of its
delegates upon any point whatever.
It is now obvious this course was
designed to foil tho conference in
coming to nin general or special
solution of tho silver question. Let
ters from British delegates announce
thoir return lo England next wcok.
Thoy will oppose whatever requests
American dolegates may make in re

Baron Horseholl's Indian Curren
cy Committee, which adjourned with

onco should havo ended, has resumed
sittings and is taking tlio ovidonco
of exports. Members of tho coni
niitteo seem strongly in favor of tho
adoption of gold coinage in India
and concurrent cessation of free
coinago of silver. What chiolly pre

policy is tho uncertainty prevailing
among members regarding the action
of tho American Government, as tho
risk or paralysis or tho Anglo-Indian

Saturday, Dec. 17, 1S0S.
Chandeliers at low prices
are still moving; it's the price
that takes them away and
there's no one bidding against
you. It's astonishing how many
people wanted good light but
hdd back for fear the price
was against them. You have
another chance this week if
they are not all sold.
Rookwood, the most beauti
ful of all American pottery is
about half the price it was two
years ago without any change
in quality. Some choice vases
arc of exquisite tints and artis
tic decoration equal in effect
to Crown Derby or Royal
Worcester. Your cabinet will
be improved by the addition
of one or two pieces.
Two very handsome sets in
silver for tea service will catch
the eye of the man who wants
to impress upon his wife the
fact that he is the very best
husband in the world. The
price is insignificant compared
with the beauty it adds to your
table and the high appreciation
which your good wife will have
The cut glass cream pitchers
mentioned in this column last
week are really the most beau
tiful pieces of this ware we
have ever had. The shapes
are odd and the cutting equal
to the most expensive bits
manufactured. One piece of
cut glass is as much value in
table decoration as any thing
vou can buy. Some of the
olive dishes are duplicates of
the very handsome ones shown
last year; others are of an en
tirely new pattern, shell shaped
and the quint essence of love
liness. Another invoice of Royal
lemonade shakers will enable
us to meet the demand for
Christmas novelties. If you
don't object to planting lemon
seeds in your stomach the old
style shaker will answer; some
stomachs rebel at such food
and it's to those people whose
" innards" won't stand it that
we mention the new style
shakers. We have never shown
one to a person yet but what
a sale was made and the pur
chaser felt that he had the
best of the bargain. That
means that they are cheap.
Carving sets are always in
demand at this season. Visions
of aged turkeys, sold as the
genuine variety, appear to the
man who has to do the carving
and he yearns for a sharp tool
to do the work with. If you
do not need a set of carvers
we can supply vou with a
"Jointer" made especially for
carving fowls. The little knife
grinder will help out the peo
ple who do not want to incur
the expense of buying new
People who live in Oriental
splendor come to us for their
lamps. We have some
styles suited to that class as
well as less expensive ones for
the people who class them
selves as plain every day peo
ple. Everything is in having
the goods for the masses. You
seldom have to go elsewhere
for anything in our lines, they
are always full and we sit up
nights to see that we are not

how we come to please the
