AN ERItOB. NOT AM, AN ERROR.
In saying tho otbor day that tho
expenditures for "military and items
not appropriated by tho last Legis
lature" weronta rate equal to tho
whole ordinary rovenuo, an error
was mado inadertontly which would
bo serious if anybody could not see
it on a moment's close examination.
As n matter of fact, only from a
fourth to a fifth of the probable
rovonuo is being spout on military
and objocts unauthorized by tho
people's representatives. That is
bad onough, aud wo havo no dosiro
to make it worse than it is. What
would havo boon correct would bo
tho statement that tho Government
as shown by a weok in which com
paratively little was paid in "sala
ries, otc." was spending at a rJte
exceeding tho ordinary rovonuo, tak
ing the whole biennial period, over !
and above what it was spending on
"military," etc., aud this with the '
civil list cut off aud no public works
of any extent boing prosecuted,
.uwBU ..,. .UMK u
statement wincli was purely acci-
ueumi its correction
not put tho financial position in any
better case, so far as the interests ol
the people are concerned. The
amend is, however, due to the Gov
ernment as showing, to all who may
not have perceived the error them
selves, that it is not so deliberately
improvident as the erroneous state
ment represented. Ordinary expen
ditures aboe the iucomo, with an
amount equal to an enormous pro
portion of the whole revenue going
besides for military and so forth,
make a financial situation that is not
pleasant to contemplate.
ATTACK ON THE JURY.
Failing to trump up another
"royalist" hoax, and having nothing
favorable to concoct on tho situa
tion, for tho outgoing steamer, tho
Advertiser indulged this morning in
an attack on tho native jury. Two
Hawaiiaus accused of complicity
some wa3 in a che fa lottery in ont
case the tickets having been fouuu
under his door-stop have been ac
quitted. Therefore, in tho eyes of
tho Advertiser, Hawaiian jurors are
no good. At last previous term r.
reporter was reprimanded by tho
Judge presiding for having refleeteo
on the Hawaiian jury, in cases where
tho Court knew that tho prosecu
tion had made a poor showing of
proof. Eveu if in the acquittals
this term the native jurors have un
duly straiued the "reasonable doubt,"
there is no justification for the Ad
vertiser's assault on them. It is a
good old maxim, "Better that ninety-1
nine guilty men escape than that
. i u i
one innocent man should be pun-
isneu. .um ii mo .luvoiusui u- .
sires to roast juries, it snouia ex
haust the mateiial of some white
panels of the past in Honolulu. Not
long ago a Supreme Court Justice
delivored a severe lecturo to the
police authorities for hauling up
Chinese on charges of small gam
bling, while it was notorious that
white men were carrying on exten
sive gambling operations with im
punity. Suppose the Hawaiiaus
look at the matter in the same light
with respect to thoir countrymen
prosecuted for gaming, what right
has the Advertiser or anybody to
heap denunciation on thoir heads?
There may bo another reason for
these acquittals supposing there
was good evidence for convictions
which, while not tpnablo in law, may
yet invito sympathy for the juroro
from all who possess human sympa
thies. If convictions are the test cf
a jury's virtue, then tho Hawaiian
juries this term began very woll.
They convicted at the start as many
alleged criminals as tho Goyon.
ment, on the other hand, declined
to prosecute. Tho Court in each
case increased the penalties ap
pealed from in an enormous do
gree. It Boomed as if the Court
desired to Btamp the privilege of ap
pealing to itself from a lower tri
bunal as a hoinous crime. Perhaps
tho penalties imposed below were
entirely inadequate to the degree of
guilt proved, and tho increases of S-10
to S200 in .fines therefore justifiable
aud in tho interests of offended
justice. Even then it is not un
natural that the plain Hawuiiaa
juror should have takou alarm at Uw
apparent disposition of the Cour't
to extromo soverity toward his couii
trymon. It would only bo human
on his part to do bo, and cast hl-s
preiogativu iu behalf of his recused
brethren, ' ro unpopular. But thoro is ono

from recollections ol many yours

illuitrate that tho integrity aud iu-
tolligonco of Hawaiian jurors at
least comparos favorably with tboso
qualities as rovoaled in whito jurors.
Tho vicious assault on Hnwniinns in
tho morning organ is tho most das
tardly political effort yot put forth
by that papor, and its suggestion
that tho Ilawniians should bo de
prived of Iho right of trial by jury,
in addition to tho deprivation of all

A Failing: Coueo.
As usual tho Advertiser takos a
column and a half of editorial bosh
in its issue of August 12, in abusing
its betters, aud in trying to bolster
up the "good government" of
Stevens. There is not a man that
walks the streets of Honolulu with
the iutolligeuce of a donkey, but is
well convinced that the game of the
annexation boodlers is drawing to a
close. Tho whole plan of tho Ad
vertiser and Star, in constantly fill
ing their editorial columns with ly
ing aud sensational articles, is to
blind and keep together their de
luded followers, until tho .crash
connes from Washington, that will
send them headlong into oblivion.
Miseiy likes company and is often
not very choice, in its selectiou, as
will I be seen by the queer lot now re
maining in the annexation camp.
Where are all those American flags
that wero flying so gaily around
Honolulu, and also where are all
I tiloso annexation uaages seen so or-
ten a couple of months ago? Are the
b ashmed to Bear themT Tho
fact, iS, people soon get tireu ol a
one-h orse circus, especially when
thoy havo such a low standard of
clown s, as daily perform in tho Advertiser-Star
Stevens Sid It.
The Ao.' vertiser in its lame criticism
of Air. Thoo. H. Davies, says: "Mr.
Davies, like all other royalists in
Hawaii, refuses to discuss the acts
of the ex-Qui-en, which precipitated
the fall of i the monarchy." Mr.
Davies, not b.nng in Honolulu at
the time that M r. Stevens with the
Boston troops overthrew tho mon
archy, could only say what ho had
heard about tho .matter. Tho Ad
vertiser man, liko all others who
woro hero at the time tho Queen was
dethroned, knows por fectly woll t hat
Stovons was tho father of tho whole
business. If there had been no men
landed from the Boston on tho IGth
and 17th of January last, tho Queen
would have been on tho throno to
day, rand tho country would have
been at peaeo. Eery male member
of CV intral Union Church knows tho
abor -a to be gospol truth, and I dare
any of thorn to go before any court
of justice in the land, and take oath
tf tho contrary.

tho time the stoanier swung off. A
departing member of tho P. G. band
amused the poonlo on shore with his
antics. Ho iiolu a flask of whisky in
his right hand and drank tho health
of tho Hawaiian flair. Finally tak
ing out tho cork from the bottlo ho
swung the bottlo in tho nir and
spilled some of tho liquid on tho
shirt front of Mr. W. 0. Wildor,
vice-president of the Incentive and
Advisory Councils. All eyes on the

plied, "Not much; 5 days!" Tho

There were thirty-seven Chinese

with holding the papers fraudu

When the grandfathers and
grandmothers of to-day were
boys and . girls their chief de
light on baking days was to
sit around and watch their
mothers beating eggs for the
cookies and watching an opportunity-
to get a finger in the
custard. An ordinary fork
was good enough in those days
for use as an egg beater, time
was not so valuable nor were
cooks so expensive; patent
egg beaters were not so com
mon as they are to-day nor
were the people of forty or
fifty years ago so apt in grasp
ing labor saving ideas. But
time brings many changes even
to egg beaters and one of the
best is the "Keystone." Sim
ply break the eggs in the glass
container, put the lid on and
turn the crank for a minute or
two and you have a mass of
eggs beaten lighter than air.
