TUESDAY, MAY 0, 1803.
In tho Chicago Post of April 17
ft mooting of Congregational minis
ters is roported, at which Uov. Dr.
Corwin delivered an address in favor
of tho annexation of Hawaii. "Uov.
L. A. Thurston of Honolulu,'" the
Vapor says, "also spoke brielly." Mr.
Thurston must have improved his
time since ho loft Honolulu iu Janu
ary, to have won tho ecclesiastical
hnndlo to his name. Or did he steal
in like his ''silent part nor" did into
tho hoavonly council when ho work
ed a scheme on Job
MR. THURSTON IN CHICAGO.
In this issuo will bo found a report
of Mr. Thurston's address before tho
Union Club in Chicago. It bears on
its faco evidence of being a correct
roport, because it is Thurston all
over. "Tho queen called out 700
armod men to try to force the consti
tution down our throats," is a sam
plo of tho orator's best style, ruth
his "silent partner" prompting him.
Tho host in buckram that assailed
Falstaff has at last its parallel. Mr.
Thurston mingles events that are
distinct and times that are compara
tively far apart with a facility that
brings his well-known talents into
bold relief. If the queen had over
700 armed men at her command it
was not to force tho constitution
down people's throats, but after sho
had receded from hor dangerous
position on that score and when she
desired only to maintain law and
order. That -100 moil defeated an
overwhelming force of native sol
diery on that occasion is not a fact
for history but a product of tho
orator's fecund imagination. Tho
most honorablo example of true
courage in those days was afforded
by the bravo native policeman, who
persisted in doing his duty, while a
half dozou guns wore leveled at him,
until he was shot down. Mr. Thurs
ton's emphatic disclaimer of planters'
connection with tho revolution has
been answered before. It simply
destroys the claim made by himself
and tho other commissioners, when
they arrived iu tho United States,
that uine-teuths of tho capital in
vested iu Hawaiian industry was at
tho back of the revolution.
TO-DAY'S GREAT EVENT.
This day has witnessed the en
trance into Honolulu harbor and tho
docking therein at low tide of the
Occidental and Oriental Steamship
Company's steamship Oceanic a
vessel over -100 foot, long and draw
ing on this occasion twomy-four and
a half feet of water. Only a few
mouths ago the official status of our
harbor entrance consisted of a depth
of '12 foot at mean water. To-day
there is water up to tho wharf for
the largest ships that ply in tho
Pacilic. Fortius transformation of
the harbor of Honolulu from a com
paratively light draught to a deep
water haven due credit belongs to
successive administrations. Mr.
Thurston when Minister of the Inte
rior took tho preliminary surveys,
which, however, proved altogether
misleading as to tho character of the
obstructions in the channel to be
removed. His intentions were good,
notwithstanding, and doubtless ho
would have pushed tho work through
to a satisfactory conclusion had
ho remained in powor. Tho late
Charles N. Spencer, as Minister
of tho Interior, carried to tho grave
tho honor of having executed the
greater portion of this splendid
achievement. Ho said to tho writer
of those lines, when Government fi
nances were running low and tho
deepening shadows of financial de
pression wore gathering over tho
commerce of tho laud, that ho was
determined to have tho harbor bar
removed if he did nothing olso dur
ing his administration of tho Interior
Department. In spite of ridicule of
tho hydraulic dredger ho caused to
be built, from tho entire press ex
cepting tho Bulletin, Mr. Spencer
persevered in that determination,
Tho roward was his before his
lamented death of seeing the bar to
the harbor removed, Hon, J. A.
King, tho present Minister of tho
Interior, has faithfully carried for
ward tho established policy of mak
ing Honolulu harbor fit for a much
larger commerce than it has hither
to accommodated, Through his
energy the shoals just within tho
harbor mouth havo been expedi
tiously removed, making possiblo

We are told by the crank-tumor
of yesterday's Advertiser, that tho
nation feels that it has at last lifted
itself out of I ho rut of semi-civilization,
to which it would not, could
not return. Now, ir you don't road
tho Advertiser you don't get the
news, and it must bo admitted by
the most rabid opponent of despo
tism, or pro-royalist, that this is real
lio news. In my ignoraneo 1 al
ways thought, th'at representative
government, i.e., a system under
which the people had a supreme
voice in electing tho men who made
their laws, and spout their taxes,
was in no senso somi-civilized and
that n system of government in
which these elements of popular
representation aro wanting, as in
Dahomey and Kussia, wore somi
civilized. "Yo now learn from the
now Dr. Birch of tho Advertiser that
this is all wrong, and bow our heads

bound, by tho now treason-felony

Tho "Native Hawaiian" is tho
phantom that troubles the perturb
ed spirit of tho Advertiser man, yet
his party declared from tho first
that tho native was not to bo con
sulted. Hut Thurston and partners
having laileil to annex tho United
States according to plan, tho natives
aro now politely requested to stop
into tho annexation oporatiug room
to inhale tho P. G. gas and effect
their own political extinction. How
nice! How obliging and forbearing
the bakers' dozen of usurers and
landsharks who own tho Advertiser
havo been, we learn from the follow
ing: "Since the Kaniehanioha line
lii'i'.une extinct tho rulers of Hawaii
have been allowed to continuo tho
monarchical form of government as
a matter of courtetty rather than
right." It would, obviously, not
suit the faction represented by tho
Advertiser to inform Commissioner
Blount whoso nauio is with bad
tasto more than once introduced in
to this article of yesterday that bo
fore tho ICamohainoha lino becamo

The orau of xnai-demi "civilized

lilount). as follows: "It is quite as
likel,. , however, that Commissioner
Blount already sees what the vast
majority of tho residents of Hawaii
saw before his arrival, viz.: That the
royalist cause is a fake, gotten up
by shrewd politicians to trade upon;
and that it has had no existence in
fact. 'If th" Advert i-er party have one

to take a vole of the people and I
would even havo it on tho "Noblo

S.S, OCEANIC ARRIVES
Sails Majestically Into the Inner
Largest and Longest Ship Ever Berthed
At nboul 10 o'clock this morning
tho 0.& O. S. S. Oceanic from Japan
and China was telephoned off Wni
anae, and long before noon peoplo
flocked to tho city front, as reports
had been current that sho would
eomo into port, tho bay near Pacific
Mail wharf having boon dredged to
a depth of twenty-eight feet within
the past few weeks. Dr. Trousseau
and Pilot Shopard loft in tho doc
tor's launch about 11:110 o'clock and
mot the steamer off tho roof. A signal
had been arranged with Mr. Suhr,
of H. Hackfeld & Co., agonts, that
if tho steamer was coining in Capt.
Smith would fly tho Hag on tho foro
niast at half-mast. Tho dredgo was
still working near tho wharf. Eagor
eyes were strained to catch a glimpse
of the flag, and promptly at 12:51
tho pennant was seen to drop, and a
shout was sent up from shore. Mr.
Paul Smith, superintendent of tho
dredgo, immediately set to work and
seven and a half minutes later tho
huge machine and its pontoons were
out of the way.
Tho Oceanic headed in the pas
sago and crossed tho bar at 1:10,
drawing 21J foot aft and 20 feet 10
inches forward. Four minutes later
she passed tho lighthouse.
Tho Oceanic is an iron 4-masted
steamer, built at Belfast in 1870 by
Harland & Wolff. Sho is -120 feet
loug, J 0.9 feet beam, and 23.-1 foot
deep. Her registered tonnage is 3808
tons and net tonnage 2-JHU. Sho is
the largest and longost vessel that
has over entered Honolulu harbor.
The steamer was delayed two days
iu Hongkong, having to go on the
dry dock to have repairs made to
her shatt. The Oceanic will leave
for San Francisco at '.) o'clock to
morrow morning, after discharging
about four hundred tous of froight
for this port. Thoro will bo bitter
disappointment to some of tho
Honolulu intending passengers, as
the Oceanic's berths aro full, and
but few if any will bo taken from
Shelby M. Cullom is n flag patriot.
He uses tho banner of his own, his
na'ive land, ns charity is used to
omeru multitude of sins. Tho pre
tei naturally patriotic soul of Shelby
M. Cullom is writhing in agony ami
indignation because the Mars and
btiipo no longei flout, over the capi
tol of the Sandwich islands. In his
excess of horror Uullum struggles to
exclaim: ,'J urn not surprised that
the present democratic administra
tion should order ihe stars and stripes
to be hauled down. They have taken
the flag down whenever they had the
opportunity, and there was a time
when they had it down in the btat s
for quite awhile. The dominant pow
er iu the democratic party caused the
Hag to come down then in the south
ern i-tatcs, and now they are perform
ing the same act elsewhere. It is not
tho first time, by any means, that
democrats have ordered down the
Hag of this country."
This is the usual exhibition made
by Hag patriots of the (Jullom kind.
It is noteworthy that flag patriots are
those who never followed the flag into
any position of danger. When the
Hag of the union was imperiled Cul
lom was a young republican in Idi
uois, who, if he h.ul a spark of genu
ine patriotism in his soul, would have
gone to the defense of that Hug as did
a certain John A. Logan, who was
a democrat. Cullom was able-bodied,
but he had no stomach for powder.
He wished to defeat rebels at exceed
ingly long range. He thought the
best place for him was in a comfort
able oflico bomowhere. Ho was seated,
remote from danger, in tho house of
representatives al Springfield while
democrats like Logan, Palmer, Black,
and many otheis were following tho
Hag along the battle lino, and ho has
been in oflico ever since, aspiring at
times even to tho presidency, and
always protesting tho profoundest
devotion to a flag which he had not
the patriotism to follow south of the
There are numerous mouth patriots
of the Cullom stripe. The banner is
one of their stage properties. When
ever they think they havo something
personally to gain they eomo out into
the open and wave their flat;. Judg
ing Cullom by Ids lack of spirit dur
ing the war of Hie rebellion, it may
lie fancied th.it if ho were in tho
neighborhood of Honolulu at this
lime he would never leave the pro
tection of a frigate's guns nor oxpo60
hiiiihclf to any situation of danger.
Tho American Hag is down in Ha
waii because it ought never have been
up in Hawaii, It would hardly re
dound to the credit of this mighty
republic that negotiations for annex
ation were conducted with a provi
sional government maintained by a
naval force of the republic itself.
Annexation ought not to occur in any
event unless it is the wish of the
islanders. If the provisional govern
ment can maintain itself it has no
need of tho American flag, If it can

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 ot 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
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.
Throusrh 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.
The 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.
Hackfeld & Co's.. vard is a
The Mariposa brought us
advices of the shipment of a

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 tlie iactory in
Indiana 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
any 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.
