A RUFFIAN'S DEVICE.
Tho placard placed upou tho gato
post at tho outranco to tho grounds
of Col. Clnus Sprockols was no doubt
tho work of ono of thoso cowardly
curs so abundant in tho ranks of tho
annexationists. Thoso gontry, mak
ing pretensions to a lovo of froo
government and fairplay toward
themselves are still too willing to
display tho traits of tho assassin
upon occasion of finding auyono
with opinions difforont from theirs,
and with courago to oxpross thoso
opinions. Such mon as Col. Sprock
ols cannot bo mot by thoso annexation-jackals
in tho open, and bo op
posed by tho legitimate weapons of
political warfare. No, such a courso
would ond in tho prompt discomfit
ure of tho Colouol's gallant (t) oppon
ents, who, too cravon to faco him in
fair controversy, resort to tho tac
tics of tho rufiiau and blackguard,
and post upon his gates a cowardly
throat of assassination. Vorily, tho
"truly good" gontlemon who aro
steering tho present gamo of politi
cal bunco aro to bo congratulated
upon tho olovatod moral character
and irreproachablo political devices
of their delectable supporters. Hoav
onsl how that same mangy gang of
noisy whelps would mako Komo
howl in denunciation of such tactics,
should they bo employed bjr the exe
crated Royalists. By tho -way, it
would not surprise us to have the
"truly good" annexationists post a
similar placard on tho gato-post of,
say, Mr. President Dole, as a counter
to this last fiendish move, and as a
pretext for a. scream over the cus
sedness of the Royalists. They are
such a nice lot, such a job lot, o !
saints, that no act of theirs need
WOBRYING THE TAX LIST.
Again the Star has put forth its
wondorful exhibit of tho preponder
ance of annexation backing in the
list of taxpayers rated at and above
$10,000. The following table of to
tals is the result:
Annexation $23,408,407 jj
Divided $ 5,127,070
Royalist , 2,'289,2a!
Majority for annexation 14,058,897
This would be very pretty if cor
rect, although, as pointed out by the
Bulletin some time ago, a plutocra
tic majority for a given policy is
something that no political party in
the United States would be in hasto
to prosont in a campaign. Tho Star's
table is, however, as said before
without more than a cursory inspec
tion, egregiously incorrect. Some of
tho corrections it requires to give it
the slightest statistical value appear
in the following table of anti-an-nexationists
and "divided," which
has been prepared with tho assis
tance of gentlemen who know moro
about tho facts in question than the
primers of the Star over learn:

As previously stated wo tako no
stock in tho argumont of propondor
anco of wealth at tho host. Tho
wisost man said somothing like that
tho wisdom of tho poor man saved
tho city. Govornmont has no higher
function than tho protection of tho
poor from tho oppression of tho
rich. Howovor, lot that bo. Our
prosont purposo is to show that tho
Stor's promises being grossly at
fault its conclusions aro worthloss
in any ovout.
It is easy, howovor, to go furthor
nud show that tho Star's argumont
of comparative strength of annexa
tionist and anti-annoxationist tax
payers loaves annexation not a Ior
to sustain itsolf. Taxos wore col
lected last yoar of equal to ono por-
cout on a valuation of &15,097,08G.
As tho bulk of tho taxos on proper
ties under $10,000 valuation is paid
by native Hawaiians, tho whole
truth would bo that tho property
owned by anti-annoxatiouists ropro
sonts moro than that owned by an
nexationists. But when actual heads
of taxpayers aro counted tho majo
rity against annexation must bo at
once conceded enormous and over
whelming. And what but tho "ono
man ouo voto" principle should for
a moinont bo admitted into the is
suo, espocially when tho questiou in
volved is connection with tho most
democratic nation on earth? To
admit auj- other principle would bo
tantamount to saying that tho owner
of assessable property of $10,000
should bo given two votes for tho
ono voto hold by tho owner of an
estate taxed at $5000. Will tho Star
tako such ground as a professed
exponent of Amoricanism?
In tho Diocesan Magazine for
Juno is an article on tho political
situation which is reprinted else
where. Another notable article is
entitled, "An Inquiry into tho Alleg
ed Hawaiian Relapse into Idolatry."
It maintains that the religious pre
text for overthrowing tho monarchy
to save the country from idolatry at
onco takes tho "recont movement,
whatever it bo called," "out of tho
category of revolutions, rightly so
called, and makes it plain that it
lacked those political justifications
which can generally bo pleaded on
behalf of revolutions." Tho whole
article should bo read by everybody
who would have a full conception of
AN OLD PRINTER GONE.
John Brash. Closes an Eventful and
John Brash, printer, died at tho
Q uoou's Hospital yestorday, aged 60
ye-ars. He was a native of Glasgow,
' Scotland, and came noro witn nis
..father's family by way of Valparaiso
i,i 1816. He learnod tho printing
ti "ade in tho office of tho Polynesian
alt ing with Kainio, a votoran native
tyi Hi now in tho Gazette otfic. John
woi it with his father to California in
'49 i 3r thereabouts, but returned to
tho islands after a whilo.
It was on a second visit to San
Fran cisco, at the time of Lincoln's
assas nuation in 1865, that Brash mot
with tho injuries that ended in his
blind, sess. A symbolic string was
hangii ig up in a saloon, with a tag
saying it was for anybody from tho
News J jotter who came along. Sev
eral no wspapor offices were wrecked
in riots during tho excitement over
tho Pros Sclent's assassination. Brash
asked w Wat tho string meant, when
for answ tr tho bartender landed a
slung sho. -on his forehead. In the
row that onsuod Brash was stabbed
in the bad c .and shot several times
in the leg.
Brash w as once foreman of tho

Evans and Sontag Run Sown at Last.
t John Sontng was brought to Visa
lia and placed in tho County Jail at
10:30 o'clock on Juno 10 by United
States Marshal Gard, Los Angolas,
assisted by Deputy Sheriff Rapol jo,
Fresno; Doputy Unitod States Mor
shnl Jackson and Thomns Burns, tho
man who was with Black when tho
lnttor ofllcor was wounded at Camp
Badger a fow days ago. Evans is
supposed to bo wounded also, for
when ho loft Sontag ho also loft his
snooting otituj, oxcept Ins revolvers.
Sontag looks liko a man who has
had a liard time, his appoarauco ro
futos tho charge that tho bandits
had boon woll cared for by their
friends. An Unitod Press reporter
onrly that morning started for the
scone of tho battlo of tho previous
night. Fivo miles out of tho city
ho mot a wagon coming in with
Sontag who lay on a lot of blankets
and sacks wounded and boirrimod
with dust and blood and ono side of
his faco and nose tilled with powder
marks. Hardships and neglect woro
pictured in his gonoral appearance
and his black hair and beard wore
long and unkempt. Ho looked like a
shoop-herdor just returned from an
all summer job in tho mountains,
overalls old and faded, patched
in several places and covered
with grease. Ho had on a pair
of new shoes that looked as if
only worn a fow days. He is more
spare and attenuatecf than when ho
mado Visalia his homo a yoar ago.
Ho had evidently bled considerably
during the night. Dry crusts of
blood covered with dust wore about
his nock and faco. Ho evidently had
bled from tho mouth from an inter
nal wound. Ho is shot "through tho
arm with a "Winchester, tho bullet
passinc into tho body. When mot
by tho reporter tho wagon was halt
ed in tho shade of a tree and a can
teen of water was brought. Sontag's
hoad was hold up and tho wounded
man drank freely, saying ho felt as
though ho never could got enough.
Ho declined whiskey and seemed to
bo in groat pain from tho internal
wound. On tho way into Visalia tho
officers endeavored to keep tho news
from reaching tho town in advance
of them; all persons passing on the
road wore stoppod and told not to
precede tho officers, probably, bo-
cause they foarod an attempt to
lynch Sontag. No one talked of
lynching, the crowd at the jail being
very quiot and orderly. Shortly af
ter he was carried into tho jail Mrs.
Chris Evans, Mrs. O. P. Byrd, and
Eva Evans wore admitted to see
Constablo English, ono of the
posso who wont out and found Son
tag, says that just before reaching
tho battlo ground, thoy met Burns
and Gard who had lain out on watch
all night. Tho whole party pro
ceeded to a straw pile and found tho
bandits' guns. In the straw stack
they saw tho hoad of Sontag who
was apparently dead. He was al
most outirely covorod with straw.
Tho posso uncovered him and found
a revolver in his loft hand, which
thoy took possession of. Near by
lay two shot-guns and a rifle and
about 30 yards away in the direction
which Evans had gone, another
Winchester rifle, quite bloody. Evans
had dropped it as ho was making
his oscape and after sovoral shots
being fired at him. This is a strong
evidence that Evans is badly wound
ed, as ho would never have loft his
trusty rifle behind if his arm had
not boon broken. Sontag had laid
all night in tho pile of straw at tho
spot where ho fell at dusk tho night
before. Only one shoo and his faco
was visible. Ho had heaped straw
over himself with ono hand. It was
a cold night and when found ho was
stiff; tho straw had become clotted
in tho blood and presented a ghastly
appearance. Wnon taken lrom tho
straw ho talked froquontly. Ho said
ho was shot through the arm and
inside. Ho said that when ho foil
ho was hurt too badly to got away
and told Evans ho had received his
death wound and urged him to
mako his oscape aud leave him to
A reporter interviewed Sontag at
3 o'clock, at which timo ho was very
weak. Ho says that 200 shots wore
fired, tho battle lasting over an
hour. He was disabled at tho first
firing and lay in tho straw with bul
lets whistling over him for tho bal
ance of tho fight. Ho says that ho
bogged Evans to shoot him before
leaving, but Evans declined.
Physicians decided that it was im
possible to save officer Jackson's log,
shot by Sontag, aud thoroforo ampu

Sovoral engines from tho city bri
gade wore soon at tho scene, but
thoro was little water aud tho build

and pupils, but all oscnpod in safety.
Chief Bonoit was overcome with
smoke in tho top story, aud had to

tho falling of tho roof, which caused
his death nost morning.
Tho loss by tho burning of tho
convent is ostimuted at a million

only $100,000 insurance. Villo Mario
convent occupied a commanding

The curbstone ordinance
now being enforced means
hardship to the property ow
ners and activity in bolts and
lumber by the merchants who
deal in those articles. It's a
hardship only on owners who
declined to have the curbs set
when the road board force was
doing the work and to those
whose property was not on the
line of past improvements.
People have the choice of three
lumber dealers and the price
of material is the- same, but
with Bolts, and you'll need a
lot of them, we have the stock,
and prices are in conformity
with tne times. If the super
visor calls on you to put a
curbing in front of your pro
perty come to us for your bolts,
and you will want to paint the
lumber with Carbolineum, so
you'd better get that here at
the same time.
The Crank Lantern adver
tised by us a week ago seems
to have caught the idea of the
people who like to handle a
lantern without risk of burn
ing their fingers. This article
seems to nil a long ieit want
and the demand for it seems
to be growing daily. We have
them in copper as well as tin.
Three Fischer Steel Ranges
went last week into the homes
of people who enjoy good cook
ing but who couldn't get it out
of the old stove. The fact
that the material of which
these ranges are made is just
twice the thickness that the
first lot was made of puts them
in the top rank of the stove
maker's achievements. The
only fault ever found with this
range was in the thickness of
the steel; now that this has
been remedied the Fischer
Range is pronounced the only
perfect one on the market.
The hot water coils being in
the fire box it takes but a few
minutes of the plumber's time
to make connection so that
you may have hot water in the
bafh and kitchen.
The demands upon us for
Wire by plantation men has
been so great lately that by
the time the. steamer reached
here we were short of it. With
what we received on the
"Australia" we can supply any
ordinary demand and our
arrangement with the manu
facturers in the United States
and Europe puts us in a posi
tion to practically control the
wire trade in this market. We
have also added largely to our
stock of Barbed Wire and can
fill orders to any quantity.
If you contemplate improv
ing your property by the addi
tion of a little paint we would
be pleased to contribute to
your bank account by selling
you Paints, we mean by this
that by purchasing from us
you save money and every
thing saved should go into the
bank. We can also supply
you with the necessary Oils,
Varnishes and Brushes to fin
ish the job.
Everyone knows how we
stand on the plow question;
they know that such a good
plow as the Hendry Breaker
has never been introduced on
these islands. We told you
last week that it is being used
on twenty-one different planta
tions on the islands, since then
another one has come into the
fold. We have also a small
Double Furrow Plow that is
gradually growing in favor
with plantation managers.
Our Rice Plows are unexcelled.
