words of what ho taid would bo of
moro news valuo than all tho eoarso
imoctivo of thoio niral .soribos.
Mr. Thurston sayb not ono in a
hundred of tho whito population
would opposo anuoation. Othor
etpinlly high authorities put tho pro
portion at something less than ono
in ton. A poll of whito and uatho
votors separately would relieve those
clashing authorities fiom the painful
situation of contradicting each othor.
There would bo nothing loft to
them, how over, but a common under
standing as to tho size of tho snow
bank under which thoy found them
selves. In tho vigilance begun to bo exor
cised by our Board of Health to pre
vent tho iutroductiou of cholera,
watchfulness against othor maladies,
with less terror in their name but
much daugor in thoir train, ought
not to be relaxed. There is more or
less of Gorman measles in San Fran
cisco, which would bo an unwelcome
visitant for admission hore. It was
loportod that this was tho disease
which tho sick boy among tho teem
ing passongors on tho Monowai had.
Although this was contradicted
while tho steamer was hero, tho inoi

LOWERING THE FLAG.
Many of tho jingo papers in the
United States aro tiding to s4ii up
public feeling against E'to-idont
Clo olaiid's policy in Hawaii, so far
as it has developed, by passionate
references to the lowering of the
flag. Some forgot if thoy ever know
certain facts of history bearing on
this point, when they say that it is

It is not so long since sho voluntarily

about the action of the United
States herself a few yea is ago in Sa
moa, when sho withdiew her pro
tectorate placed over tho group by
an over zoalous consul without
authoritj'? Tho bitterness of fac
tional spirit has often operated in
Hawaii to tho injury of good govern
ment. That same bitterness, in pie
venting f airplay, was the eauso of
the reaction that first checked tho
annexation fover in tho States. Now
it would not bo surprising if tho
savage partisan assaults on Presi
dent Cleveland, on account of an ac
tion whoso reasonable explanation
is contemned, aro going to prove tho
undoing of tho whole annexation
scheme in the United States. To
this end the ill-concealed sneers and
sarcasm directed at Commissioner
Blount by the local annoxation press
will have thoir duo share of helpful
ness. No Hawaiian Annexation.
Wo print elpevvhoro u timely and
instructive despatch from Mi. Charles
Nonlhou who 1ms gone to Honolulu
to ascertain specially for tho Hkkai.d
tlio exact situation and outlook theie.
It firings the advices fiom the
Islands down to April 8 eiht days
after tho protectorate was deel.uid oil'
by Commissioner Blount. Thu action
was a great disappointment lo the
loaders of the provisional government
and the annexationists, fin the obvi
ous reason that it thwarted their
bchenio, but it was welcomed by the
native population. The conieo and
conduct of the natives, who, hy the
way, are not savages, as in t-iimua,
but are an intelligent reading and
writing people, are pronounced "ad
mirable." Pioin them no tioublo is
feared and nono vvlmtevoi lb expected
unless it should he bioughl about hy
the ill advised domes of tlio rabid
annexationu'th in Honolulu.

Tiue, the otlending Minister was
mildly notified by the Stale Dep-ut-
nient that his action was disavowed
"so lui us it ni.tj appear to oveistop"

that no attempt was made to undo
what he had done without warrant
and in violation of out national policy.
The unauthoiied pioleetorate, back
ed bj the navy and sj nibolizul by the
Hag, was recogtnid by allowing it to

the Senate to complete the annex

to give the Ulwiti-ei a lesson m

out of which half cannot vote anil
half of tho remainder aro stronglj

To obtain tho total of 20,000 wo
must then coiisidoi as "all whito"
the following elements: Hawaiian
born of foreign parents 71i)."i, and
Portuguese 8002, total 1(5,0117. But
in this mongrel total, tho Hawaiian
bom of foreign parents aio well
known to include all foreign races
white, black and yollow, and cer
tainly tho sous of Chinamen are
pretty numerous in this branch ol
alleged "whito" Havvaiians, Not,
among tho Portuguese, all those

aro negroes or uegutos, and a laige
percentage of th"so fiom tho A.oics

Some time ago, a year per
haps, we made mention in this
column of the enormous
amount of tourist travel that
would pass between the Colo
nies and the United States
this summer and the probable
benefits that would be derived
from it by Honolulu's business
men. Our prophecy has, in
the main, proven correct. The
passenger lists on the through
steamers have been abnormal
ly large and the number of
dollars that have dropped into
the coffers of the storekeepers
would be hard to calculate.
The tourist travel may bring
benefits in other ways. The
climate, the tropical plants and
the blight are all objects of
curiosity and people who are
looking for a quiet peaceable
home are sure to favorably
consider the land where revolu
tions occur and a government
can be overturned without
bloodshed. They cannot find
it anywhere else and we may
expect an increase of settlers
from the Colonies. In another
year our streets may be throng
ed by individuals who habitual
ly turn up the bottoms of their
trouser legs in rain in imitation
of something the Prince of
Wales did one rainy morning
j in London.
The advance in sugar has
added zest to energy of the
sugar men and improvements
and repairs that should have
been made last year will now
go on. Land which had been
almost abandoned on account
of the low price of the product
will be cultivated and yield five
tons to the acre. We know
this has begun from, the orders
we are receiving for our Hen
dry Breakers. Managers who
bought two or three last year
to try, have duplicated their
orders this year; two planta
tions each have ten. These
little things prove the superi
ority of the Hendry Breaker.
No plow on the islands has its
reputation for strength or
effectiveness and we question
if another could be made to
equal it. If you are a planta
tion manager and want a
really good breaker, try it.
Through the courtesy of
Messrs. Hackfeld & Co. we
have just set up a steel Aer
motor in their yard at the
corner of Fort and Queen
streets. We had one there
before and sold it to two differ
ent people before we had time
to take it down. Aermotor
towers of steel are an innova
tion here but in the short time
they have become popular.
1 he Aermotor, of course, is
the only windmill recognized
on these islands where wind is
variable and often light. Their
construction is so perfect that
the least wind operates them.
For the lawn, plantation or
ranch the Aermotor is the
cheapest and best known
means of obtaining a supply
of water. We have them with
fixed or tilting towers, wood
or steel. The one in Messrs.
I Iackfeld & Co's., yard is a
The Mariposa brought us
advices of the shipment of a
car load of Fischer Steel
Ranges right from the factory.
The peculiar effect of the clim
ate of the islands upon metals
prompted us to have this lot
of ranges made of steel just
twice the thickness of those
formerly sold by us or by any
other dealer in ranges in the
city. Any one with a frag
ment of brain can understand
that this adds to the life of the
We have greater confidence
in these ranges than we have
ever had before, because a per
sonal visit to the factory in
ladiana last summer enabled
us to get improvements with
out adding to the expense.
People who have used a Fis
cher Range have no hesitation
in saying that it heats up
quicker and with less fuel than
tiny stove of its size known.
In this respect it is economi
cal of coal or wood just as
our brand of Refrigerators is
economical of ice.
