Absurdity in corrospoudouco bunco
iu the i G. interest lias reached the
climax in tlio statoiuont gravely
mado that the islands would bo of
fered to llussia in tlio ovout of re
jection by the United States. This
looks as if tho United States were
given up as a hope, and an attempt
thon made to scare Great Britain
into a grab gamo with Russia, as
Groat Britain was tried to bo used
as a scarecrow to influouco tho
United States. With Russian rule
von Topaz would doubtless bo Vice

told by the wonderfully kuowing

other place; it was a green spot ii

warm place iu my heart. Please givi
my lovo to all friends, and bohevt

Bohring Sea Arbitration, delivered
copies of tho arbitrators' decision in
Paris on tho 15th inst. Afterward
ho addressed tho arbitrators, saying
that he recognized the great value
of arbitration as a meaus of peaco
between nations. He expressed tho
opiuiou that every international
arbitration rendered war loss proba
ble, and said ho looked forward to
tho time in the uoar future when it
would be tho rule and not tho ex
ception to settle international con
foronees in this way.

A HIRED SAFETY SMASHED;
Unfortunate Result of Hoodlos9 Driv

Whilo a bluejacket from tho U. S.
S. Boston was riding along Alapai
street on a safety, bolongiug to tho
Honolulu cyclory, at 7:130 o'clock
yestordaj' evening, a hack driver, at
a fast gait, turned in from Borotauia
street. Before tho pailor could es
capo tho flying vehicle, the wheels
crushed tho hind wheel of tho safety
and demolished part of tho machino.
Tho bluejacket was thrown to tho
ground, aud on arising saw tho hack
disappear around tho corner into
King street. 10 ottered a reward of
S3 to Portuguese lads, who were
present, to find out the number of
the hack, and although thoy follow
ed thoy could not trace it. It will
cost the Boston man a good sum to
repair the wheel.

A. Hale, proprietor oi the De Witt
House, Lewioton, and the Tontine
Hotel, Biunswick, Me. Hotel men
meet the world as it comes and goes,
and are not slow in sizing people
and things up for what they are
worth. He says that he has lost a
father and several brothers and sis
ters from Pulmonary Consumption,
aud is himself frequently troubled
with colds, and he
Hereditary often coughs enough
to make him sick at
Consumption's stomach. When
ever he has taken a
cold of this kind he uses Boschee's
German Syrup, and it cures him
every time. Heie is a man who
knows the full danger of lung trou
bles, and would thtrefore be most
particular as to the medicine he used.
What is his opinion ? Listen ! "I
use nothing but Boschee's German
Syrup, and have advised, I presume,
more than a hundred difieient per

The difficulty about a pump
ing arrangement can be over
come by the use of an Aermo
tor, dry seasons or wet seasons
it will run without fuel and
without cost. . People now
using them pronounce the
Aermotor the best and cheap
est power in existence. We
make this mention simply to
help out the members of the
Advisory Board when the mat
ter again comes up for dis
cussion. 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 they 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
yond 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
tain Freezers. We've tried
other sorts but none have
given the same satisfaction.
We have them for small, me
dium and large ice cream ap
petites. The price varies ac
cording to the size. If you
are pressed for time and want
a sherbert for friends who ac
cidentally dropped in to din
ner the "Little Wonder will
finish the business in just seven
seconds after you have packed
the cylinder. It makes ice
cream quite as rapidly. We
have only a few; the demand
last year was enormous.
In addition to a very large
stock of genuine Haviland
