In tho Honolulu correspondence
of tho San Francisco Chronicle, Mr.
Thurston is represented as advising
tho deportation of tho Quoon if tho
United States refuses to annex tho
islands. Although tho report is
doubtful, it is not unlike the rash
young man to give such advice. The
king of Samoa was dopoilod onco,
but ho was brought back.
THE RETIUING MINISTER.
No representative of tho United
Stales Government has ever come to
Hawaii entrusted with moro onerous
duties, or charged with a weightier
responsibility, than Hon. J. H.
Blount. There has boon no United
States Minister to take his depar
ture, on the completion ot his mis
sion, who loft buhiud him so perva
sive an opinion that ho had served
his own country with conscientious
fidelity, while creating no occasion
for feelings of resentment on tho
part of the authoiities or tho public
of this eouutry. While Mr. Blount
has shown tho instinctive regard of
u gentleman for tho rights of all
with whom ho has had oflicial doal-
ings. lie has at tho same time evinced
a decision of character and an in
tegrity of ollice which would not al
low him, for any consideration of a
personal nature, to swerve bj- a
hairsbreadlh from what ho deemed
to bo the strict line of his duty.
Both whon ho acted under otdeis,
like a soldier, and when ho had to
take his own judgment as a
guide, like a general, his prompt
ness of movomout quickly ended
suspenses that, prolonged, would
bo worse than even a choice of
tho greater evil. From tho
very beginning of his intercourse
with tho oilicial and privato people
of tho country, when he camo hero
as a Commissioner to make investi
gations, Mr. Blount exhibited tho
rare qualities that have made him
eminent at homo and, as events will
no doubt prove, of invaluable ser
vice to his country on this his first
mission abroad. Coming hero as a
total stranger to everybody in tho
land, a man reared in the proverbially
generous hospitality of tho South,
it might be expected, would have all
his sociable instincts impelling him
to cast himself freely on tho hands
of those who met him with hearty
prolfers of princely entertainment.
But ho politely rejoctcd all over
tures that would make him the hon
ored guest, and selecting a home of
his own, ensconced himself in it as
headquarters of dutx, pure and sim
ple. "BiiiinosT before pleasure,"
was the motto that ho obseivod
from first to l.i-t. When, however,
his hard special work had abated,
Mr. Blount with his amiable spou?e
bestowed tho far-famed charms of
Southern hospitality and sociality
upon Honolulu, so that their pres
anco will bo most happily remem
bered and their absence keenly re
gretted. Discharged for Smuggling.
Second Mate Bolton and Quarter
masters Enieiaou and JDoull, of tho
S. S. Ocpiiuic, woro arrested at San
Francisco for smuggling opium and
cigars. They were at onco dismissed
from tho service, as it is a rule of t ho
company not to employ anybody
suspected of smuggling by Customs
ollicors. Collector Wise would have
liked to have Fiist Oilicer Lossins
discharged, as it was while trying to
got evidence against him that tho
Customs oilicers caught the others.
Tho captain, lir&L mate, chief and
assistant chief engineers of tho
steamers are protected from sum
mary discharge by the White Star
Company because tho steamers are
chailorcU Jroill tliat llllO Ot L.1VU1-
pool, which company reserves tho
right to appoint tho men who shall
bo the principal ollicurs of their
ships. If Iho Oriental aud Occi
dental Company had obtained per
mission by cable to dismiss Lossins
tho steamer could not sail, as she
would havo been deficient iu compe
tent navigators, tho Chroniclo says.
Mr. Thomas Hatto, editor of tho
Graphic, Toxarkana, Arkansas, has
found what ho belioves to bo tho
best remedy in oxistonco for tho Jinx.

eating them away as caterpillars do

are too small to be seen with the

alive just the same, aud enter the
body in our food, in the air we
breathe, and through the pores of
the skin. Thence they get into the

where they fasten and increase with
frightful rapidity. Then German

For some reason "Helvetia"

anyone who asks for it. In

We have it from a reliable
source that horned toads are
to be imported from the sunny
clime of Texas for the purpose
of ridding the Islands of the
blight. Just what will be re
quired a few years hence to
free the houses and lawns of
the toads is not stated.
Horned Toads are great pets
in Texas where they are some
what domesticated. In some
countries ladies lrequently
take their toads with them
when they go calling; we may
have the same fad here in an
other six months, but in the
meantime if you want to have
your trees and hedges look
green and healthy leave an
order with us for a tin of in

a shade cheaper than you paid

if you want one, take this op

Two articles we have not
mentioned in this column for a

in good times they .sold them

them in every street in town,
but not on every house. We

that's why we mention it. The
young gentleman with the silk
hat who undertook to number
the stores and houses gave up
the job when he was half
through. You can go on with
it yourself by the use of these

cheap enough and you can
