Nothing of the kind is "under

that the Japanese Government's do
sign to procure, tho Hawaiian suf

broached when tho cruiser Xaniwn
was horo several months ago.'' I.
.was au old story then.
Those who havo beou telling u
how quickly opium smuggling woulc' ,
be stopped hero under annexation
may exorcise their wits at leisure
on tho following paragraph from tho
San Francisco Chronicle:
Tho customs officers have captured
another little lot of smuggled opium,
just enough to give some idea of the
immensity of tho opiuin-smuggliufj
business on this coast. There aro m
statistics of the consumption o
opium in California, nor even in this
city, but it is perfectly well-known
that tho opium ou which duty i
paid forms only a small percentage
of the amouut consumed. Tha
patient and gentle creature, th"
"Chineso person," as the acts of
Congiess call him, is a great con
sumer of the narcotic.
So much that is not true about tho
relations between Hawaii and Japan
has beou published by tho Govern
ment organs here, and the San Fran
cisco papers with biased correspond
euts here all from a motive quit
transparent that anything ou thac
subject from tho same sources nunr
bo taken with a largo grain of sail.

THE MILL STILL GRINDS.
It used to make somo people
shudder to hear a proposition for
annual instoad of biennial sossion
of tho Legislature. Many reasons
could havo been given, however, for (
tho belief that tho change would
havo greatly reduced, if not removed,
certain evils attendant on tho sittiix,
of the Legislature. But what do
tho people generally think of a poi
ennial legislature, tinkering with old
laws and making new ones, without
the slightest attention to puuiic
opinion? A few mouths ago tho
dominant sentiment of the Councils
was that they Uitl not ovist lor auy
object but annexation, and should
therefore Uo no lawmaking that was
not required lor the immediate
necessities of public security or the
changed form of government. Is it
because the Councils consider they
cannot keep themselves together
without doing something more than
listening to information that the
newspapers could give them, that
thoy persist in the unnecessary ini
tiation of new laws and the turning
upside down and insido out of old
ones? Or is it only an instance ol
tho mischief that a certain person
age is said to find for idle hands

THE IiOOAL PRESS.
While there is much truth in tho
Star's complaint about Government I
officials being too reticent to tho
local pross, tho Honolulu newspapers
havo not so very much reason to bo
jealous over favoritism shown to cor
respondents of foreign papers.
When the false and misleading ele
ments aro eliminated from most of

in it as a rule which

foreign correspondents who are on-
ployed on tho local pross, and who
from political associations hero havo
tho insido track, frequontlv keep
back news from their local readers
. . '
so as to leave something fresh for
their foreign communications. Those
cortainlv have no right to complain
of discrimination against tho local
press by tho authorities. It is
not so true as some people seem
to think, either, that foreign corres
pondents cast local reporters into
tho shade by superior work. Such
people forget that tho correspondent
for a foreign paper has ono special
lino of news only that ho is expected
to collect and forward. In this work
ho has all tho advautngo of tho
groundwork furnished by tho local
papers, and if ho has any originality
at all ho can see points in local
items, that need only bo brief on
account of tho general knowlodge
l of residents, which may be elabor
1 ated with advantage for foreign
! readers. Another advantage he
doubtless has in tho very respect
of which tho Star complains in that
being n straugor and perhaps repre
i Renting a paper of considerable omi-
nonce, he receives tho more atten
tion and consideration both from
public men and private person
ages. Above all he has from one
to threo weeks between foreign
mails in which to gather, arrange,
! compile, sift and polish his subject
i ..' ' . ,, ... .
matter. His work comes back to
Honolulu, occupying perhaps from
two columns to ono page of his pa
per. Straightway residents aro heard
admiring his ability and his indus
try, and perhaps to the disparage
ment of their acquaintances of tho
local press. Vet while tho stranger
has been putting his communication
together, the unjustly despised local
man has filled as many pages as the
other has columns, covering not
merely the political but tho com
mercial, judicial and social features
of Honolulu in tho time involv
ed. Not only that, but the local
journalist has to rush his news to
tho printers as fast as ho can col
lect it, recording events that aro as
yet not fully developed but have
to be road in connection with both
past ami expected intelligence.
Moreover, in a small newspaper con-
such as this, tho local
journalist has not the oenents oi a
, division of labor, which through tho
( complete departments of a metropo-
' j;tau journai is Ono of tho chief
, factors in making a great modern

newspaper a great modern marvel.
He has to cut stories short for limit-
ations ol both time and space when
interest of the subjects would
justify elaborate treatment, and
often is compelled to devoto time to
small details of getting to press with
which tho reporter in a largo place
has never to concern himself. Not
withstanding all this there is vorj
littlo "homo news from abroad" to
be found ou a critical examination
of Honolulu correspondence in foi-
eigu papers, and a good deal of what
there is of such will leave but a

FOUL PLAY IN BUILDING.
Might Have Sent a British Warship
to tho Bottom of the Saa.
Tho new British battle ship Hood
came very near meeting grave dis
aster a few weeks ago, less than a
week after sho was commissioned.
Sho was found one day to be leaking
badly, and the water gained so
rapidly that sho had to be docked.
Tho leak was caused by the opening
of the seam of two of her keel
plates, which had not been properly
riveted. Instead of the rivets being
drivon properly homo, thoy had boon
driven but half-way in and dummy
stubs placed on tho other side. The
discovery caused considerable excite
ment, as had the Hood been at sea
wheu tho plates started, disaster
would havo beon inevitable.

When we imported a couple
of "Western Empire" Wash
ing Machines some months
ago it was with the idea of in
troducing to the public some
thing that would save fifty to
seventy-five percent of the
time of the servant. The first
one was bought by a lady who
knew its worth, the other one
we sold to a lady who wanted
to see if it was half as good as
we represented it. Since then
we have imported others and
the rosiest cheek Japanese
waiting maids at the theatre
Friday night were the girls
that are using them in wash
ing table linen and baby clothes
six days in the week. It isn't
the washing that makes cheeks
rosy but the fact that the use
of a washing machine gives
the girl more time with the
Mates of vessels must have
Whistles, and, if thev want
something of a superior grade
they should come to us be
cause we have been careful to
select just what they need.
The fact of our selling more
Garden Hose than all the other
dealers combined may be attri
buted to cheap prices and
superior quality. It seems
that no matter how large a
quantity we order it is hard
work to make it last from
steamer to steamer. If yours
has worn out buy a Hose
Mender from us; if it is be
yorrd redemption buy a new
piece of hose and a Reel and
it will never wear out.
Refrigerators and Ice Chests
are as necessary in this coun
try as anything in the house
furnishing line and necessary
articles should be of the best
quality. For either of these
hard wood is as superior to
pine as gold is to copper. Our
last invoice of Ice Chests is
entirely of the superior hard
wood variety and quite good
enough to be considered orna
mental furniture. Besides be
ing an ornament they are great
economists in ice, a matter
worthy your consideration.
It is said that the best ice
cream is made in White Moun-
sorts but none have
given the same satisfaction.

It resists water, acids, alkalies,

It possesses tho remarkable
property of " covering " with
