Tho wildost humoriugs of tho

tisor, aro not calculated to do more
harm to tho Govornmont of which
that journal professes itself a cham
pion, than aro tho snoering and bit

its own columns. What need,
what justice, was served by such
a quasi-sareastio roferoneo as that
mado in yesterday's Advortisor to a
faithful housohold officer of tho lato
regime, whoso appointment was ap
proved by tho Reform Cabinet of
1887, and whoso official career has
wo boliovo been blameless? Tho only
result of this and many other recent
utterances of our contemporary
is disappointment and irritation in
tho minds of those who hope that
the present political transition aims

Murder will out. A few months
ago the Illustrated American had an
article entitled, "Shall Wo Annex
Hawaii?" It was packed with out
rageous blunders and deliberate
fabrications from beginning to end.
People here wondered who could
have boon so utterly lost to honor as
to havo penned such a tissue of lies.
Tho article was not oven up to tho
Illustrated American's low literary
standard that paper's reputation in
tho States being that of having tho
meanest rubbish of reading matter
conjoined with tho highest class of
artistic illustration. At last tho
mystery is solved. A briefless fourth
rate attorney, hired by a native wo
man to blacken tho character of
her race in tho columns of a parasite
sheet, boasts tho authorship of tho
article in question. Nobody will
any longer wondor at tho character
of the production.

Tho Liboral has a roferoneo to tho
contract labor law that it assumes
will bo abolished by tho more sha
dow of tho Stars and Stripos, in

editor oithor ovincos intent to do
coivo or ignoranco of tho working of
factories in tho United States, whoro
not only aro fines by bosses tho regu
lar thing, but tyrannical rules aro in
force for reducing tho earnings of
tho workers. Thus, if a poor girl
operative is not inside tho gatos
whon tho sovon o'clock boll coasos

England, sho is lockod out for tho
whole halfday. That sho may havo
beon detained by accident or any
unexpected domestic trouble makos
no difference. Anuoxation may or
may not bo a very good thing for
Hawaii, but it is silly for pooplo to
talk as if it woro going to transform
paradiso or perdition (whichever
way you look at tho present) into
tho soronest heaven. People will
still havo to work for their living,
annexation or no annexation. Our
soil will havo to bo treated with a
solution of sweat to resolve it into
silvor and gold, no matter what flag
waves ovorhoad or what may bo tho

been much harder in California of
lato years than in tho Hawaiian Isl
ands. Frothy vaporings such as
form tho staple of tho Liberal's edi
torials will neither solve present
problems nor produce any pudding
in the future.

Tho godly Mr. Emerson sooms to
havo lost no opportunity )f lalo to
cast odium upon tho Sovoroigu of
his nativo land. Not content with
political abuse, ho has sought out
occasions for holding -Her Majesty
up to scorn and contempt on ac
count of what ho, in his missionary
malico, has boon pleased to doscrlbo
as hor oncduragomont of sorcory,
and tho promotion of a roturn to
idolatrous practices on tho part of
hor subjects. A donial of thoso
venomous and cowardly chargos is
not required to convinco any who
know both tho accusor and tho ac
cused, so I do not concern mysolf to
deny them, My prosont purpose is
moroly to roinark upon tho Chris
tian truth and justico bj' which Mr.
Emerson was apparently inspired to
mako his gross and wanton attacks.
Tho missionaries of whom Mr. Emor
son's fathor was ono, havo taught
my race at loast in theory that a
half truth is as bad as a falsehood,
from a moral standpoint, and may
ovon bo more dangerous and injuri
ous, and thoroforo should bo more
sovoroly reprehended. It might bo
woll if this gontloman of highly
pious pretensions should now act
upon some of his own precepts and
those of his clique Whon speaking
of tho Quoous protoudod lapses
from Christiauit toward tho
hoathonism of ancient days, why
did that saintly scion of mis
siouarydom nogloct to toll of
Hor Majesty's constant, numerous
and munificent benefactions to tho
spread of tho gospel, not only among
hor own people, but in foreign lands
as woll. No ono bettor than Mr.
Emerson knows that Hor Majesty
has ovor boon tho first ouo sought
by thoso of his guild who had fa
vors to ask or money to bog, and
none know hotter than ho that such
solicitors woro never sent away by
Hor Majesty ompty-handod. Would
it not havo boon more in consonance
with his pious profession to have
cited some of thoso facts, as tending
at loast to counterbalance his scur
rilous accusations, than to havo left
tho latter, as ho dfd, without tho
mention of a redeeming trait, to bear
thorn company? But, after all, what
bettor could havo beon oxpocted
from such a sourco? Who ovor ex
pected truth and iustieo from ono
of tho latter day "missionaries," and
had his expectations realized? Look

When tho Liboral last changed
editors tho favored ono for its goutlo
ownoross's stipend whined at au im
aginary disposition of tho Bulletin
to persecute his shrinking self. This
paper in good-humored banter sooth
ed tho milled soul of tho shy ap
prentice journalist. Next issuo of
the Liboral evinced more ease of
mind on the part of its English col
umns provider, but some anxiety
was still apparent iu tho pains taken
to placate tho persecutor. A high
eulogium was passed on ono of our
editorials, and otherwise there was a
disposition shown to smoko tho pipe
of poaco with us. Tho Bulletin was
glad to seo tho follow becoming
pleasant but yot had tho tomerity
to ignore his overtures and ovon tho
existence of his liego madamo's
vagrant sheet. For such characters
tho cruollost persecution is to bo loft
alono, and so this jack of several
"professions" becomes quite vicious
again in his latest offorts. Ho makos
a scurrilous porsonal attack on tho
editor of this papor, iu tho form of
an account of his appearance before
tho joint Council, which has not a
lino of truth iu it from beginning to

Justin McCarthy lamonts in the

mako tho nouso of Commons only a

sions of tho public out of doors.
Now, I confess that this would seem

PATERNALISM IN RAILWAYS.
An article in tho Economic Jour
nal contains matter that must be
hard of digestion to that apparently
growing school that believes iu tho
state's doing almost everything ex
cept eating and sleeping for tho in
dividual. It is a papor by W. M.
Acworth, entitled, "Survey of tho
Working of the Government Rail
ways in Democratic States," tho
statos iu question boing thoso of
Australia. Mr. Acworth says:
It must bo loft to timo to show
whether Australian experience will
completely or only partially confirm
tlio conclusions which tho Italian
Commission of Inquiry drew from
tho accumulated oxpononco of Eu
rope, that stato management was at
onco more costly and less efficient
than private managomont; that poli
tics would corrupt tho railroad
management, and that the railroad
management would corrupt politics.
Should theso conclusions bo fully
confirmed, wo may yot live to seo
tho democracies of Australia follow
ing tho example of Illinois and Indi
ana; of Pennsylvania and Georgia; of
Massachusetts and Michigan; divest
ing thoinsolvos of their railroad pro
uorty either by lease or sale; resolv
ing on tho procedentof Pennsylvania,
that "transportation is to be regard
ed as a private onterpriso and not as
a public function;" or ovon, liko
Michigan, placing on record iu thoir
statute books acts prohibiting their
governments from luter-meddlinc
either with tho construction or the
operation of railways.
Tho Canadian Govornmont has
boon fooling tho pulse of its pooplo
lately as to a transfer of tho Inter
colonial Railway with its branches
amounting to about a thousand miles
of track to the Canadiau Pacific
Railway Company. Both tho Federal
and Provincial Governments of Ca
nada havo realized iu their building
and operation Of railways tho full
force of what is aptly put in tho
foregoing extract, as polities corrupt
ing tho railway managomont, and
tho railway managomont corrupting
politics. That country has paid high
enough for having a company build
its groat railway from ocoan to ocoan,
but if it had persisted in tho original
plan of building tho lino as a Gov
ornmont work tho country would
long ore this havo had to bo sold at
auction to pay for tho railway that
is, unless tho construction was made
to drag along for a quarter of a cen
tury. Mr. Albort Favorite, of Arkansas
Cit3', Kan., wishes to givoour readors
tho bonofit of his exporionco with
colds. Ho says: "I contracted a
cold early last spring that settled on
my lungs, and had hardly recovered
from it when 1 caught anothor that
hung on all summer and loft mo
with a hacking cough which I
thought I would novor got rid of. I
had used Chamberlain's Cough Rem

much success, nnd concluded to try
it again. Whon 1 had got through

I would ask for a little space for
personal explanation. 1 have not
addressed a copy of this to the editor
of the Advortisor, as I havo con
stant' found that gontloman (?)
wanting iu both journalistic decency
and truth. I havo frequently told
him so and therefore he persistently,
to gratify his personal spite in re
venge, uses his newspaper position
to make iu public priut insulting and
untruthful allusions and references
to mo. I will not take any notice of
his malicious untruthfully silly state
ments about mysolf and others
further than to say this: Whon Mr.
J. M. G. Sheldon, editor of the Ho
lomua, was arrested 3'estorday and
brought before tho Executive and
Advisory Councils I was commis
sioned to secure legal counsel for
him. As thoso secured woro unablo
to bo present through business en
gagements, I attouded tho sitting of
tho Advisory Council while Mr.
Sheldon was before them to watch
tho proceedings on his bohalf. Whon
Mr. Sheldon was romandod and tho
discussion on the case finished, I loft
to seo him and inform him what had
boon dono on his behalf and to see
tho police- authorities and ask them
to treat him with as much consider
ation as was possible. I did so. I
neither feared arrest either at the
instigation of tho Advortisor editor
or anyone else: nor do I foar it
now. What I do or havo dono I am
always ready to answer to tho proper
authorities, but not to tho Advor
tisor. I would say further that tho
Holomua is and will bo a consistent
upholder of freedom of speech and
tho liberty of tho pross, and it is
becauso it upholds tho truth that
the editor of tho Advortisor and per
haps others do not like it.
G. Carson Kenyon.
It seems impossible for tho editor
of the Liboral to fill out tho Eng
lish version of his papor without low
abuso of either tho Queen or tho na
tives. Ho says tho royal favor was
a badge of dishonor. In another
placo he says, "Tho nativo voter has
seomeel to Do ainouablo only to ilat
tory and bribery." Ho has nothing
to say against the devilish bribers.
Now then wo fool porfoctly woll sat
isfied that tho editor of tho" Liboral
is one of thoso unfortunate boings,
of whom there aro not a low, who,
if tho Queon was reinstated on tho
throne to-morrow, would bo almost
ready to fall down and kiss hor foot,
for only a smilo of recognition. It
is not tho hatred of ro3alty by any
means that has caused so much bit
tornoss to ilow from tho lips of some
spread-oaglo "Yanks" in our midst,
but that is caused more or loss by
tho absence of that sweet smilo of
royalty, the delight of every Amer
ican tourist throughout Europe, as

as a back numDer. Hawaii is
undergoing a bit of a change
just now accompanied by some
excitement but we get only an
echo of the thunder; the noise
itself is made in the United
States, for the British Lion has
no time to grunt at anybody
else while he is roaring in
Egypt. But we digress! To
follow the lines laid down by
the English in '87 and the
Yankees in 92-3 we must
adopt a name for certain of
our goods suitable to the
period and events of today.
For the next few weeks we
will ask you to try our "Provi
sional Rat traps" nothing like
them has ever been shown in
Hawaii. Fancy catching
eleven rats at a single setting;
they take everything in sight.
The. only objection we, as
dealers, have to them is the
fact of their catching so many
rats that the supply is soon
Then we mention our
"Provisional Bells" for the
table or doors. These have
taken the place of the once
famous "290" bell that has
gone out of date. We recom
mend the "provisional" in
preference to anything we
have in stock. The table bells
are heavily plated and well
adapted to a climate like ours
where even a coat will rust.
Electric door bells and attach
ments for windows are among
the useful things offered you.
Several kinds of flour sifters
have been on this market of
late years and each one ap
parently an improvement on
the one that preceded it. By
the Mariposa we received
another new one belonging
evidently to the "Victor"
family, as they are similar in
appearance to those of that
name. You will remember
that in the Victor you turned a
crank. In the new kind, the
"Barlow," you simply shake it
and a wire connection at the
bottom sifts the (lour,

Tho following cholco hit of word painting
occurs in Hawthorne's Marble Faun:
" Women bo they of what earthly rank
thoy may, however gifted with intellect or
genius, or endowed with awful beauty, have
always some little handiwork ready to 1111
the tiny gap of every vacant moment. A
needle is familiar to tho lingers of them all.
A queen, no doubt, plies it on occasion; tho
woman poet can use it as adroitly as her
pen; the woman'H eye, that has discovered
u new stur, turns from its glory to send tho
polished llttlo instrument gleaming along
the hem of her kerchief, ortodarnin.'isuul
fray in her dress. And they have greatly
the advantage of us In this respect. Tho
slender t 'ireuil of silk or cotton keops them
united with the small, familiar, gentle in
terests of lift', tho continually operating in
fluences of which do so much for tho health
ol tho character, and carry oil' what would
otherwise be a dangerous accumulation of
morbid sensibility. A vast deal of human
sympathy runs along this electric line,
stretching from the throne to the wicker
chair of tho humblest seamstress, and
keeping high and low in a species of com
munion with their kindred beings."
