THE DAILY BULLETIN.
Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But Ettablithed for the Benefit of All.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28, 1893.
It is some months sinco tho P. G.
passed a law to rogulato nowspapors.
Although admittedly dovisod to
worry tho Holomua, tho law was
necessarily mado general in its ap
plication. Straugo to say, tho terms
of tho law havo not yet boon com
plied with by oithor of tho Govern
ment organs, but are daily violated
by them in spito of tho ponalties
provided. Horo is a chance for tho
P. Ch to add a few thousands to its
revenue by rocovoring tho penalties
for which those papers aro liable.
Both of tho P. G. organs havo had
thoir say on tho subject of Mr.
Nordhoffs departure sinco tho pub
lication of Mr. Bounott's telegram
asking him to stay horo as long as
ho pleased. Tho Advertiser shows it
has been knocked out by its descant
ing at lougth on an obvious mistake
of tho types in the dato lino of tho
tolegram. Both papers throw out
mysterious hints of official compul
sion having beon tho causo of tho
departure of Mr. Nordhoff before ho
was quite roady to leavo. Aro they
afraid to givo tho facts thoy claim
to havo in possession?
Our correspondent at Hilo, who
has given evidence of being a zealous
annexationist, claims to voice the
general sentiment of tho business
people of that town iu bittorly de
nouncing tho action of tho P. G. in
making a change of Collector of
Customs there. Tho dismissed offi
cial enjoyed uuivorsal confidence
and esteem, and is a Hawaiian of
more than average intelligence and
attainments. Ho has boon summarily
removed to mako room for a Hawai
ian from Honolulu, whom tho poli
ticians could find no place for here
as a reward for his services in can
vassing his countrymen for tho cause
THE HILO EIRE.
Hilo does not do itself much credit
in the exhibition it makos of its fire
department, for which tho late Legis
lature and the P. G. since mado
liberal provision. There aro church
bolls in Hilo which surely could bo
utilized for fire alarms as in small
towns abroad, also in tho electric
fire alarm systonis of large cities.
For the lack of water the towns
people are perhaps not to blame. A
water supply should have preceded
a firo department in improvements.
Tho few people who turned out at
tho recent firo, however, seem to
havo done grand work with limited
means iu preventing tho fiamos from
spreading. Hilo being without
manufactories in the town has not a
reserve force of volunteer engineers,
so that when this firo surprised the
community, while tho regular en
gineer was on his deathbed, there
was nobody to work tho engine if
there had been water. It speaks well
for the wooden town that fires have
boon so rare within its confines, and
it is hoped that, if tho firo reported
in this issue was tho work of an in
cendiary, as supposed to bo beyond
doubt, tho miscreant will bo brought
With the docking of so many
steamers, as is now the case, at tho
Pacific Mail wharf, arrives tho neces
sity for completing tho improvement
of Alakea streot. Tho wharf named
is situated at the foot of this streot,
and the tall smokestacks and stately
spars of the steamships confer a now
distinction on tho thoroughfare.
Alakea furnishes the most direct
route for all uptown quarters, in
cluding tho Hawaiian and Arlington
hotels, to tho wharf iu question. It
affords the minimum exposure to
the abounding dust of the water
front, which is very disagreeable to
passengers going to or from the
wharf. Work has lately boon pro
grossing at tho junction of Alakea
stroot with the newly macadamized
esplanade front. It ought to bo
continued with despatch to King
Btroot, leveling up the grade, which
has beon worn very rugged, to mako
it flush with the tramway rails. At
tention is also noodod to the ap
proach by Alakoa street to the wharf.
It would bo a groat improvement to
havo a carriage entrance opened into
tho shed direct from tho street. The
construction of tho Sailors' Home
now begun on its lino is an addi
tional roason for having Alakoa
street made an attractive thorough
F. G. PHILISTINISM.
Iconoclastic probably thoy deem
themselves, but tho public will view
tho P.G, as vandals. Tho old flagpole
which has been standing in front of
tho barracks from time immemorial
has boon lowered and proffered as a
gift to Mr. J. W. Kalua of Wailuku,
presumably for lack of a more honest
reward of his eorvicoH as a decoy
duck for annexation among his
countrymen. Not satisfied with
toaring down tho quarters of tho
Queen's sorvants tho P. G. must
noods lay tho ax to othor stato pro
perty that has boon associated with
royalty. Thoro was talk lately about
demolishing tho stone barracks, and
it wouldn't bo surprising to soo tho
picturosquo stronghold razed to tho
ground. It is timo tho general pub
lic entered a strong protest against
such vandalism involving doublo
wasto of valuo tho worth of tho
property destroyed, materially and
osthotically, and tho oxpouso of tho
work of destruction.
Tho vandalism iu nomenclature of
time-honored objects is equally ro-
pulsivo to good tasto. Why should
tho name "Palaco" have boon sup
planted by such a monstrosity as
"Exocutivo Building?" Then tho
word "Court Houso" for tho molli
llueut "Aliiolani Halo" but tho P.
G. themselves woro tho first, through
thoir organs, to avoid tho moan term
and grasp for more dignity in tho
clumsy appellation," Judiciary Build
ing." "King" street, "Quoon" street,
"Kaahumanu" street, "Lunalilo"
street and "Kapiolani" street not
to mention "Victoria" streot may
bo oxpocted next to havo thoir names
obliterated by tho tar mop of tho
philistiuio oligarchs, and roplaced
by tho freshor cognomens of "Dolo,"
"Jones," "Smith," "Emmoluth,"
"Watorhouso," "Sopor" and "Mc
Lood." ("King," howovor, might
stay with tho saving titlo "Captain"
Doubtless tho fundamental princi
ples of tho Proclamation that doos
service as a constitution will prove
broad enough to cover any such
idle diversion of kindergarten ad
ministration. Anything to rub tho
Uair of tuo natives tho wrong way
now goes for statesmanship.

An Italian Impostor Who is Known
All Over Russia.
An Italian, who cannot be other
than a most remarkable impostor,
has been playing woudrrful tricks
upon tho good peoplo of Tillis, in
the Caucasus, Russia. His name is
Tagarolli, and whilo ho cannot bo
termed an Italian in tho strict sense
of tho word, having boon born in
Russia of parents born in tho saino
country, it is known that he is of
that extraction. Ho is known all
ovor tho land of tho Czar as "Tho
Dying Prophet," his ability to de
lude the public depending on a
queer faculty ho has for dying and
returning to life once every week.
A person who has viewed tho situ
ation on tho ground says: Tho
audacity of his pretensions, tho skill
with which thoy are maintained,
and, above all, the profound oflect
produced upon all who come in con
tact with him, have no parallel iu
history. Ho is a most extraordinary
being, and if ho bo an impostor thou
ho is the most marvelous impostor
of tho ago. Ho dies, to all appear
ances, and the ordinary death tests
declare tiiat life is extinct- While
in this condition he declares that
his spirit "visits tho other world,"
but which of tho two ho will not
tell. All that ho will divulge in re
gard to his doings while on those
"trips" is that ho can tell tho spirit
ual standing of every person who
cares enough about it to make in
quiries. St. Louis Jtepublic.

Supposed Incendiary Fire De
stroys the Hotel Annex,
Ho Alarm and the How Fire Depart
Hilo hai had its second firo in 18
years, it occurred on JLhursuny
morning, 22d inst. at the original
Hilo Hotel, now called tho Annox,
tho hotol proper being tho fornior
Spencer mansion. The firo was first
soon at 3:110 a. in., flames issuing
from tho front door. Tho polico
woro called and a fow citizons came
to tho rescue, but it was seen that
tho firo was making such headway
that tho building could not bo saved.
Efforts woro accordingly mado to
save the hotel proper. A bucket
company was formed and water
thrown on tho bath houso and hotol,
and a small hoso was also used, all
with such effect that the hotol pro
per was saved.
Tho now engine was brought up
by Wilson's horses, but too late to
be of any uso oven though thoro had
beon water to bo got which thoro
was not, The engineer was sick and
has sinco died, and those who woro in
charge of tho machine did not un
derstand it sufficiently to make it
work. So it was of no uso. In fact,
no bells woro rung to wakou any
body, as wo have no alarm boll. Wo
should havo ouo at once. A major
ity of tho peoplo know nothing of
tho firo until after tho building was
burned down, which was ouo hour
after tho flames woro discovered.
The firo is supposed to be the
work of an incendiary no doubt of
it. Thoro was no ouo in tho houso
at the time. Mr. and Mrs. Chas.
Furuoaux occiqiiod tho first floor,
but woro not at homo that night.
Thoy lost a very valuable library,
containing some very choico works,
and othor valuable articles. Only a
fow of their things were saved. Rev.
Mr. Baptisto, who had occupied a
room but is now iu Amorica, loft his
trunk and somo books in his room.
Most of his things were saved, with
a bed and a few clothos belonging to
Mr. and Mrs. Furneaux. Tho smoke
was so dense and the fire so very hot
that it was impossible to save but a
few things. Tho houso was only
about five years old. It was insured,
but for how much is not known hero.
It belonged to tho Victors, and one
of that family, now in Honolulu, has
tuo policy. It is thought that the
insurance will cover the mortgage
on tho house.
J. Vierra, manager Hilo hotel, had
furniture iu tho upper story of tho
house, which was only usol. in case
tho hotel propor was full. His loss
he estimates at $700, and he had no
insurance, noithor had Mr. and Mrs.
Furneaux. If the Government havo
an extra boll wo wish they would
send it to Hilo for a firo alarm boll.
AN UNPOPULAIt ACTION OF THE T. O.
The removal of Mr. John Stupplo
beon, Collector of Customs, Hilo,
was a great surprise to everyone.
There had beon talk of his removal
a short timo since, and there was a
petition sent to Honolulu asking his
retention, signed by tho leading citi
zens and business men, for we havo
tho most entire confidence iu Mr.
Stupploboon, and aro not pleased
with his removal. I am certain I
speak tho feelings of all loyal people
hero. As wo aro tho ones that do
business with the collector and aro
entirely satisfied with him, that
should be satisfactory at Honolulu.
Some enemy has beon trying and
succeeded iu injuring our collector.
Ho should bo placed back in his old
position. Ho is sufficiently loyal for
Hiloitos. Was educated in Massa
chusetts and brought up thoro under
care of a good man, General Mar
shall. CELEBRATION OF THE FOURTH.
The Glorious Fourth will bo cele
brated at Hilo by a luau on Cocoa

prising townsman, Mr. J. It. Wilson.

freshments at tho small sum of ouo

he will get it up is a guarantee that
it will bo a good timo, and all will

These continued lawn
brightening showers are hav
ing a depressing effect on the
windmill business. Every one
will remember when they re
collect it that February was
the banner month for rainfall
in the Kingdom even the
weather clerks noticed it, The
rains have kept up until now,
many of the fish in the bay are
becoming water-soaked and
we hear whispered around the
hotels that the milk is affected,
but there has not been rain
enough to supply plantations
for irrip-atinp- purposes. We
and the Aermotor look out
for that, our 12 and 16-foot
wheels and a triple acting
pump will do as well and for
less money than a steam en
gine. Have you ever thought
of it? How the wind (it
doesn't have to be a strong
breeze or a gale as with other
mills) will supply the place of
coal or wood and give the
same results. Wind is cheap
in the Hawaiian Islands.
We are now prepared to
offer the stock man or planta
tion man generally a Locked
Wire Fence that is superior to
anything of the kind sold.
You can build it as rapidly as
an ordinary wire fence and
with fewer posts, consequently
less expense than the other.
When completed the fence
will resist attacks of stock that
would break down any fence
constructed in the old way.
If for any reason it should need
repairing one man can do it at
a great saving of time. We
have samples, actual size, to
show persons who are inter
ested in fence building and
who contemplate improving
their properties. One pro
gressive man on the other
side of this island, erected the
first and since then we have
received orders for many miles
of it. Understand that it is
not a made-up arrangement,
we sell you the wires,, the stays
and the locks. Your own men
put it up and you save in posts
and in time.
The last steamer brought us
a full supply of Garden Tools
in small sets suitable for ladies
who like to give their personal
attention to plants. They are
made for service and are ri
diculously cheap. We .have
sold a great many of these in
the past, and the demand for
them justifies the additional
supply we have just imported.
Neal's Carriage and Enamel
Paints go to you now cheaper
than ever before, but quite as
satisfactory. ' No paint in
the world stands the weather
or has as fine a finish as
Neal's, either for carriages or
iron fences. Thousands and
thousands of gallons have been
used here without a single
complaint. Our- stock is un
usually large, having been in
creased by recent importa
tions. Some day as you pass the
store, suppose you glance in
the makai window at a Silver
Plated Fish Set of Knives and
Forks. The design is the lat
est and the material the best.
Should your stock of table
"arms and ammunition" be
short of this sort of thing it
will be impossible for you to
give a dinner to anyone in the

The Fourth of July celebra
tion promises to be one of the
best ever held in the Hawaiian
Islands, the grounds being con
venient of access will be visited
by a larger crowd than usual.
The occasion will warrant it;
recent events have advertised
the United States among the
people of Hawaii, and there is
a growing desire in the hearts
of many residents to "boom
'er up." It is not long until
the day for celebrating arrives
and you will want to get your
lawns in good shape for strang
ers and others to feast their
eyes on. You cannot do much
without a Lawn Mower and
ours is the best. If you have
allowed your grass to grow
very long you will want one
