THE DAILY BDLLP
Pledged to neither Sect nor Parly,
But Established for the Benefit of All.
MONDAY, DEC. 19, 1892.
At tho general elections in Sweden
to take place at tho opening of 18'.).'3
tho leading question to bo decided
is that of tho franchise. Scarcely
six percent of tho population aro at
present qualified, as only those pay
ing au income tax, or having a yearly
incoino of ?22o, havo tho right to
vote. Tho Liberal Franchise League
in this campaign demands that all
persons having an incomo of S140 a
3-ear bo qualified as voters.
In this issuo will bo found au arti-
'clo from tho Konnobeo (Maine)
Journal, tho newspaper of Hon. J.
L. Stevens, United States Minister
to Hawaii, also an articlo comment
ing thoreou from tho Now York
Sun. These articles show who is at
tho back of tho annexation agitation
at this ond of tho lino, and suggest
tho question whether tho United
States Government has changed its
policy regarding these islands, enun
ciated on the 19th of December,
1842, exactly fifty years ago, which
was to support tho independence of
TRADE WITH PORTLAND.
Captain George H. Pope, an old
time master in tho trade between
Portland, Or., and Honolulu, has
been interviewed by tho Oregonian
on the subject of tho formation of a
company to engage in tho Hawaiian
trade. It appears to him that bo
foro a profitable trado could bo in
augurated between Portland and
tho islands, a sugar refinery must be
established at Portland. "This also
moans," ho says, "that wo must have
tho control of certain plantations at
the islands, besides a largo capital to
purchase raw sugar in Manilla or
China. If to this can bo added a
fair tourist travel, I think a good
fast steamer with pleasant accommo
dations might do a paying business.
"It might bo possible to have di
rect monthly connection with tho
islauds if any cf our transcontinental
linos were to compote with San
Francisco for tho mail contract to
Australia, but unless either or both
of those two things happen, I do not
seo how a trade can bo worked up
bj' merely taking down limo, bran,
shingles and fence posts and bring
ing as return cargoes a fow thousand
bunches of bananas. A sugar refin
ery is the thiug to reach tho islands
with and a fow million dollars to
buy up mortgages at Honolulu will
keep it running. This, in my opini
on, is the only practical plan to
start in with to commence a Portland-Honolulu
kiiuU of bills "is in no way disput
ed," but that "tho Supremo Court
has sottlod the question." Hero wo
seo a conclusion directly opposed to
tho promise. Tho train starts but
never arrives, while, again, it arrives
without tho introduction of a start.
What then shall wo say? Why,
after all, tho Advertiser is nimely
taking a constitutional out lor a
political stroll so to say. There is,
however, a hidden mischief in its
chief contention that it may bo well
to expose. "Tho veto should never
be used in cases of a trivial nature."
First of all, if this is a trivial ques
tion, why make mountains out of
mole hills? Why appeal to love of
Constitution, why opposo a royal
prerogative which has never been
questioned, which has been sanction
ed by tho highest tribunal in tho
land, if, after all, tho question is but
trivial? Without venturing an opin
ion as to whether it is a trilling ques
tion that tho government of these
islands shall bo regulated by planta
tion rules, wo profor to consider the
wisdom of tho advice so kindly given
by tho Advertiser, which would toll
tho Sovereign to interpose a veto
only in questions, of a revolutionary
or dangerous nature
It is our opinion that if tho Sov
ereign were to veto tho expressed
will of the nation, as declared bj' its
representatives, in some matter of
supremo moment, tho Advortisor
would bo the first to shriek for a re
form in high places of its nature
revolutionary. 11, in such a crisis,
tho Sovoreign were once more to
veto tho reforming measure as being
revolutionary, would tho editor of
the Advertiser uncover his head in
respect to tho decision of his sover
eign exercising constitutional right
on one of tho occasions especially
mentioned in this article? Iloro is
an illustration of that "airing ono's
views," without consideration or re
flection, which so strongly resembles
tho train that neither starts nor ar
rives but moroly runs. Tho only
way to satisfy tho Advortisor would
bo to havo an ainendmont in tho
Constitution, advising tho Sovoreign,
tho Supremo Court and tho Legisla
ture to consult our morning contem
porary in all things political, ethical
and, wo may add, serio-comic, be
cause of a truth tho writer of tho
articlo on the veto is an unconscious

Pitiful Ending- of a Wandering and
Domonted Native Woman.
Mahoa, a native woman, was run
over by the train for Ewa this morn
ing and killed. The engineer saw
what ho thought was a bundle on
tho track between Moanalua and
Ptiuloa. Ho slowed down to pick
tho bundle ux,but when too lato dis
covered it was a human being. Tho
cowcatcher struck tho woman above
the ear, making a fracturo of tho
skull about tho sizo of a half-dollar.
Tho speed was about three miles an
hour when tho woman was struck,
although tho track was sanded in
order to make tho wheels hold. Ma
hoa was a demented middlo-aged
woman who had been missing from
hor homo on Queen street for some
days. Superintendent Ashley fur
nished a special train to take Cor
oner J. A. Mohrlon and jury to and
from the place of accident. Thoy
found a heap of keawo beans and
faggots of wood near tho track. Tho
body of tho woman had been takon
on board the train that struck hor
and transferred to tho train from
Ewa for town. An inquost will bo
held at ! o'clock this aftornoon.

It would bo a difficult undertak
ing to find, oven on the file of tho
Advortisor, a parallel for tho leading
articlo on tho veto which adorns tho
issuo of our contemporary of Friday
last. These editorials remind us of
tho three divisions into which a
comic papor divides tho trains in
Bradshaw: one class arrives but
novor starts, another starts but never
arrives, while tho third neither starts
nor arrives but merely runs. So
with tho Advortisor's editorials. Tho
majority start from nothing, load
nowhere, merely run. This articlo,
howovor, seems to embody tho three
salient foatures above enumerated.
If wo look at it from one point of
view, it starts but loads us iiowhoro;
from another, wo find oursolvea be
ing irresistibly drawn to conclusions
devoid of promise; while botweon
those conditions of mind wo porceivo
ourselves jogging along hand in
hand with our good friend just out
for a constitutional.
Let it not bo imagined that wo aro
striving to gain a point without ad
vancing a truth. Take, for in
stance, this vory articlo in question.
To begin with wo aro told
that the action of tho Sover
eign, in vetoing tho bill fixing
tho hours of labor of Government
employees, "will bo condemned by
all who havo tho cause of Constitu
tional development at heart." Hero

patriotism, Do wo condemn this ac-

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
held 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 potterv is
about half the price it was two
years ago without any change
in quality. Some choice vases
are of exquisite lints 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
you 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 you 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 te see that we are not
short on anything. That's
how we come to please the
Oriental splendor people.
Banquet lamps in old silver
are among the handsomest of
ornamental and useful things
for the parlor. No matter
what you may furnish your
room with it looks badly if the
lamp is not all right. Put a
good lamp on a smart table
and your furniture may be of
Nor'west; it's the lamp that
does the business.
