Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But Established for the. Benefit of All.
TUESDAY, JUNE 13, 1893.
In tins issuo is presented a
Bynopsis of tho majority decision of
tho United Statos Supremo Court on
tho Goary Act for tho exclusion of
Ohinose. Tho Act is sustained. It
is anticipated that tho measuro will
bo difficult of onforcotnout until
Congress makes an appropriation
for espouses. Iu tho inoantimo a
motion ponding for a now hearing
will suspond operations for part of
tho iutorval before tho assembling
of Congress. For tho prosout tho
anti-Chinoso press of tho Pacific
Coast is satisfied with tho decision
of tho highest court in tho laud,
which, as tho Call sa3s, "is a decla
ration of tho right of tho nation to
oxcludo aliens and to enact such
laws as may bo necessary to oxclu-
Hawaiian fruit growors havo had
a new market suddenly opened to
them by tho now lino of steamers
from Australia to tho northwest
parts of tho American continent.
Results of tho trial shipments of ba
nanas and pineapples by tho initial
steamor will bo oagorly awaited. It
is possible that a domand will spring
up at the outset which it will tax
tho utmost energies of tho producors
for sovoral years to supply. Should
such prove tho case it would convey
a late lesson to many of our people,
namely, that tho roward generally
awaits those who havo pluck to go
ahead and risk something on pro
ductive enterprise without waiting
for a market to present itsolf. Sup
ply of ton discovers demand just as
truly as demand creates supply.
AMERICAN INTEREST IN A
While people wore
whether the occasional talk, wafted
up on southern breezes, about a
new Australian-American steam lino
would materialize, tho line flashed
into sight on the horizon with scarce
ly a moon's definite notice. It may
be tho same way with tho Pacific
cable matter. Last March the Inter
colonial Postal Couforonco passed a
resolution in favor of a cable from
Australia to British Columbia. Un
less Ihe United States look alive she
will lose the prestige that ought to
belong to her of taking the initia
tive in establishing telegraphic com
munication, if not beyond, at least
as far as those islands, after all her
preliminary expense of getting satis
factory surveys just as she has per
sistently neglected to earn any
credit, outside of incidental encour
agement through tho reciprocity
treaty, for either tho local lino of
steamers to these islands or tho
through line to the Colonies. Sho
has been content to accept all tho
benefits that accrued to her from
those powerful auxiliaries to her
trade, while tho Australasian and
Hawaiian treasuries yielded all tho
specific oncouragomont thereto. Ac
cording to lato accounts the British
sympathy with the cable schomo has
not abated a bit on account of tho
prospect of Hawaii's becoming
American territory, which tho peo
ple of the Colonies as well as of tho
United Kingdom seom to have ac
cepted as a prospect imminent as
well as certain. But if tho United
Statos trade on this cosmopolitan
manifestation of British interest in
a cable, to the extent of allowing
British capital and push the glory
of the achievement and then chuckle
over hor smartness, sho may find in
tho end that sho has made a great
mistake or, in other and loss re
fined words, that "manifest destiny"
has received a black oyo in this
quarter. National actions speak
louder than national doctrines, how
ever time-honored tho traditions
may be that boar tho doctrines
down tho stream of history. What
if the United Statos should wako up
some fine morning to tho discovery
that in tho possession of actual inte
rest in thoso islands sho stood only
second in pro-ominouco? As tho
latest attempt to rush tho annexa
tion of Hawaii bas proved, or in all
likelihood is about to prove, abor
tive, tho question of securing tho
legitimate maintenance of supre
macy among the Powers in relations
with this group becomes a living
and serious one for Unitod Statos
statesmanship. In this regard, it is
doubtful if a moro effective and
finer stroke could bo made at tho
outset than tho hurrying through of
an American telegraph cablo to tho
Hawaiian Islands from the Pacific
coast of the United Statos.

Tho Minister of Finance acknow
ledges with pleasure tho cheerful re
turn of reports from tho different
departments and a readiness to as
sist in reducing expenses wherever
On concluding the reading of the
report Minister Damon remarked
that ho and tho finance committee
had decided to avoid too much ab
ruptness in reducing oxpousos by
dismissing employees. In answer to
a question from the President, ho
explained his separation of silver
and certificates. An amount of $74,-
000 had l)eon received in certificates
from persons who wanted to take
out silvor therefor. It would not bo
correct to report this $71,000 as
available cash. Certificates that
wore used in paying salaries, ho
further answered, wore of course
treated as cash.
Mr. Watorhouso, in moving the
acceptance of tho report, said tho
Minister deserved groat credit for
tho care ho had exhibited in prepar
ing so full and clear a statement.
Secretary Rodgors read tho bill to

more consideration than they had
received, to havo them attained

Tho bill to amend tho law relat

the required number of members to

Saturday, June 10, 1S93,
A year ago the a' mtion of
a great many people here was
riveted on two things: the
formation of a cabinet and the
Maui mule. This year events
have so shaped themselves
that there is no necessity for
the friends of the present
ministers to give luaus or lie
awake nights to devise means
of persuading the 25th man to
vote their way, or of the sport
ing fraternity running in a
"dark horse" to beat a mule.
And the attention of the people,
where is it?
We imagine from the way
our business has kept up dur
ing the dark days of '93 that
we have had some of it. We
imagine that the Hendry
Breaker has drawn the atten
tion of the plantation man to
an implement that has saved
him more time, more money
and vexation than he ever
dreamed of. The certificates
we have, from time to time,
published as to the superiority
of this plow have attracted
notice from people who plow
now or who may some clay
give up politics and go back
to tilling the soil. Nor has
the Fischer Steel Range been
overlooked by people who en
joy food properly cooked. It
is probable that some of the
best lunches given by the lady
friends of the Masonic fratern
ity were prepared on a Fisch
er Range, we say "probable"
because the sale of this article
has been such during the past
two years that nearly every
one is the happy owner of a
Fischer, and we mention the
Masonic lunch because the
four or five days when the
lunch was given were just so
many days of good feeling for
the business men who patron
ised the affair, it was a change,
so to speak in the regular or
ders of things; one gentleman
remarked that he was "having
Sunday dinners every day
without the thought of "hash"
for the next."
The rat season appears to
be on again and people are
looking around for a way to
get rid of the pests. We can
prescribe no better remedy
than the French Trap. We
sold one on Thursday to a store
keeper and the next day he
telephoned us that he had
caught eight the first time.
There is no better or cheap
er trap than this because it re
quires no setting, it is ready
at all times and it catches the
rats alive and provides amuse
ment for your terriers.
Rather more than the usual
methods are being adopted by
the Board of Health to keep
smallpox from our midst, the
Board might go a step farther
and investigate the stench that
exists on the lower part of
Fort street near the lumber
piles, whether it is a broken
sewer pipe or a hidden duck
pond deponent saith not but
the smell is great. Perhaps
the cheapest way to remedy
the evil is to put in two or
three Ozonators. It is for
such purposes this little con
trivance was invented; it may
be used in the sick room or
closets with beneficial results
as it effectually kills the germs
of disease that lurk in the air.
They are of a rather serious
nature but the germs and ba
cilli that mingle with your
drinking water are infinitely
more dangerous, they are taken
into the stomach, the seat of
nearly all ailments, the object,
then of every one should be to
keep them out of that import
ant organ. The best means
so far discovered is by using a
filter. When we say filter we do
not mean one-half the things
that people inveigle you into
buying as filters but an Im
proved National Stone Filter
without any charcoal or other
mixtures that collect and re
tain the dirt. These that we
have, and they are without ex
ception the best filter ever
shown here are made simply
of a porous stone that collects
all the dirt and disease germs
