TBXJXH OF THE SITUATION.
Although for criticisms of its
authority tho P. G. has enacted sedi
tion laws of soverity, aud for criti
cisms of its methods aud policy, laws
of press censorship and contempt,
there is still a healthy public opinion
in thoso islands which will not be
suppressed. Tho Government clac
quora horo aud abroad, including
tho very truthful Miuistor to Wash
ington who is running a show at
Chicago, are trying to make it ap
pear that tho financial condition of
this country has greatly improved
under tho military government.
Everybody living in tho islands hav
ing eyes to see and intelligence to
comprehend plain facts, however,
knows that tho finances of tho Ha
waiian Islands wero never boforo in
so low a condition as at present, and
further that the' aro sinking instead
of rising so far, especially, as potency
in providing for needful public ser
vices is concerned.
Thoro has never been a time when,
in tho bloom of our biennial finan
cial period the first six months
after tho passago of tho Appropria
tion Act tho public works of tho
country have been in so poverty
stricken and even paratyzed a condi
tion as they have been over since tho
Provisional Government has under
taken to run the country. Import
ant street aud road improvements
that were making fair progress,
amidst all the frequent changes of
the previous regime, suddenly came
to a standstill. Tho ordinary reve
nues, that should have been expend
ed in these aud other works of pub
lic benefit, have been thrown away
on a most extravagant military sys
tem. Up to date there has been
spent on the "military and items not
appropriated by tho last Legisla
ture" nearly 5112,000. Tin's, too,
while tho boast is made that all tho
respectablo elements of tho country
aro leagued in support of tho Pro
visional Government; whilo tho
Government has absolute control of
the importation, sale and possession
of munitions of war, and, in short,
has complete hold of every advan
tage of defense against any uprising.
Heavy salaries are paid military offi
cers, some of whom do not devote
their whole time to their military
duties, and others of whom were not
able to earn a living boforo they
wero hired to help at drills and show
off their figures at parades. If tho
Government wanted to show tho
world that it did not rule by tho will
of tho people at large, it could not
have adopted a more effectual means
than its ostentatious military dis
play. But tho people have to pay
for the exhibition, while the services
designed for their comfort aud pros
perity aro lot go to the dogs.
Meanwhile the country is having
its debt increased by tens of thous
ands at a time. Tho money thus
borrowed, instead of being applied
to the purposes of the Loan Act
enacted by tho last Legislature un
der tho Wilcox-Jouos Cabinet and
re-enacted by tho Provisional Gov
ernment is used to pay old debts,
th nature and items of which aro
not given, only a statement that they
wero expended from general revenue
under Section 2 "to carry on public
improvements." This looks like
making the Loan Act retroactive,
which would bo unconstitutional
that is, if tho terms of tho Proclama
tion are respected which continue in
force constitutional principles aud
statute laws of tho monarch not in
conflict with tho now authority.
How money could have beou drawn
from tho gonoral revenue for public
improvements under Section '1 of
tho Appropriation Act is unexplain
ed, and wo should like to bo able to
say that it is not unoxplainablo. Ac
cording to tho Act money for ob
jects in Section 2 is limited to throe
distinct sources, viz., tho proceeds
of public loans, tho surplus of je
coipts ovor payments of tho Postal
Savings Bank, aud general rovonuu
"in excess of tho appropriations
raado in Section 1."
If tho uionoy mentioned in tho ox
plauatory note iu parouthosos of the
weekly financial statement was not
derived from either of those sources,
tho oxpoudituro of it was clearly il
legal unci it is difliuult to boo how
tho balonco of legality can bo re
gained by tho further illegal not of
drawing loan money to ropluuiHh tho
gonoral rovonuo, Tho Louu Aot an
ro-enactod by tho P. G. distinctly
devotes all proceeds therofrotn to
public improvements. Payment into
the general rovonuo on account of
improvements already paid for,
whothor legally or not, can hardly
bo called oxpondituro for public im
It is not bad financing that wo aro
criticising, but bad control. All
thoso things aro done by tho direc
tion and consent of tho Government
as a wholo. Tho question is not ouo
merely of mothods in tho kooping of
public accounts. When tho Miuistor
of Finance adopts drastic measures
of economy to mako both onds meet,
whereby, for wholo months at a
time, nothing but salaries and baro
running expenses ol bureaus aro
paid, bosides tho lavish military out
lav, it is because ho is forced to do
so by tho vicious policy of tho Ex-!
ocutivo and Advisory Councils.
When, up to tho present time, the
public money has boon squandered
on "military and items not appro
priated by tho last Legislature" at
the rate of 2,500,000 or close on
the amount of tho entire appropria
tions out of ordinary rovonuo for tho
biennial poriod by votes, to a largo
extent secret, of tho Councils of tho
Provisional Government, any Min
ister of Fiuanco is helpless oxcopt in
tho privilege of resigning and wash
ing his hands clear of tho wholo
business. While much of informa
tion as to how tho money goos has
from week to week been vouchsafed
by tho present Minister of Finance,
occasionally, whothor from agree
ment iu secret counsels or from in
advortoiico, tho public is kept wholly
tho dark about tho nature of
items that may bo very important.
For instance, iu this week's state
ment is au itom of "miscellaneous"
expenditure of $5030.05, which is at
the rate of more than a quarter of a
million a year. Such an itom is to
tho taxpayer what a missing article
cut from tho family newspaper is to
a woman liko her ho is not satisfied
until ho knows tho whole story. His
curiosity is whetted by tho realiza
tion that in tho ono week in ques
tion tho debts of the country have
boon increased twenty-eight thou
sand dollars, while the balance of
receipts from all sources ovor ex
penditures is twonty-six thousand
dollars, showing an actual deficiency
of two thousand dollars, or at tho
rate of ovor ouo hundred thousand
dollars a year.
Complaint from Barracks.
On the afternoon of Tuosday,
August 8, ono of the soldiers of tho
P. &. Guard went to tho captain and
leported himself sick. Tho captain
told him to go on tho sick list at
roll call. At roll call hold on Wed
nesday morning the 9th inst. at 5 a.
m., tho soldier said he was sick, hav-
,ing pains in his back and not able to
go on guard. At b a. m. tho second
lieutenant, the officer of tho guard
that day, came to tho soldier and
told him to go on guard. The sol
dier said ho was sick and unable to
go on duty. Then the officer said
ho would lock him up in tho dark
coll. The soldier replied that ho
wouldn't go to any dark cell. Tho
second lieutenant thou called tho
guard to .put tho sick man in tho
cell, but the sick man refused to go,
and sick as he was ho knocked a
couple of guards down. Tho guards
thou jumped ou him and downed
him aud carried him to the dark cell.
Afterwards tho doctor examined tho
man and pronounced him not able
to stand duty. This is tho way tho
military rulers of tho Provisional
Government treat sick people, just
liko a lot of slaves or dogs. Tho
sick mau, about whom I write, is a
Russian from St. Petersburg, a son
of a Count. His father is a general
of cavalry iu Russia, and the sou
served two j'oars in tho Russian
cavalry. His name is Count von
Topaz. Tho second lieutenant's
name is Burgot.

Tho Advertiser of Aug. 3 contains
the "views" of W. B. Olosou to the
Boston Journal, which from first to
last, are nothing but a complete tis
sue of falsehoods. The Boston
Journal will have amplo proof to its
entire satisfaction of W. B. Oleson
being a falsifier, as soon as Prosidont
Cleveland gives to tho world tho
overwhelming testimony gathered
by Minister Blount of how and by
whom tho Queen was cast from tho
throne, which she will again soon
mount to tho confusion of her ono
mios. W. B. Oleson was tho most
barefaced and ungrateful fraud that
ovor camo to tho islands penniless
wearing tho cloak of religion. Tho
hard ohook of tho man will far out
weigh his character for voracity in
any climate, as will bo acknowledged
I by ovory square man horo who has

Several of the plantations
will begin grinding cane in a
few weeks and probably the
managers will feel the neces
sity for some new belting.
For some reason "Helvetia"
seems to be in demand for
centrifugals, and for the same
reason we have it in stock for
anvone who asks for it. In
quality it is the best.
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 frequently
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
secticide and a Lewis Combi
nation Spray -Pump and use it.
Our stock of Bird Cages
came just in time to provide
homes for a number of birds
from China. The selection we
made this time seemed to be
satisfactory to the people
judging from the way we have
sold them during the past
week. We have them in solid
brass or painted for single or
married birds, and with all
We would like your atten
tion for a little while on our
stack of Brass Chandeliers
with metal or glass founts for
two, three or four lights.
These goods are manifestly
the best of the kindboth in
style and finish, ever sold
here and we offer them to you
a shade cheaper than you paid
for the last one. This reduc
tion does not last indetinitely;
if you want one, take this op
portunity to get it.
Two articles we have not
mentioned in this column for a
long time, probably because
in good times they sold them
selves. Enamel Letters and
Numbers for gates, houses or
store windows. You can see
them in every street in town,
but not on every house. We
want to put them there and
that's why we mention it. The
young gentleman with the silk
hat who undertook to number
I 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
numbers and letters; they are
cheap enough and you can
put them on without the as
sistance of anyone. The other
article that has escaped notice
is the genuine Cocoanut Fibre
Hammock; strong enough to
hold two people, a very essen
tial point in buying a ham
mock. Hawaiian Hardware Co., L'd
