Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But Established for the Benefit of All.
WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 12, 1893.
"Tho onfrauobisomout which wosl
oru civilization oITom" is what I ho
morning organ now calls it. "Try
and keep contract labor in tho
troatyl" was tho parting salutation
ol a sugar annexationist to tho Com
missioners ns tho Clnudino swung
out on hor famous wildgooso oxpo
dition. An article in tbo Star intimates
that tho Provisional Govorumout
need not oboy a request from tho
United States Government foravotu
of tho Hawaiiau peoplo on tho ques
tion of annexation. There is little
doubt that the United Statos would
see that its request was obeyed, oven
to tho extont of taking tho vote by
its own agents if necessary.
Ladies have been refused admis
sion to the Royal Geographical
Society of Groat Britain, although
their claims wore advocated by some
of tho most eminent members. The
ladies may travel all thoy liko, how
over, and "shoo" lions out of thoir
paths, just as woll without as with
"F. R. G. S." to thoir names. Still,
tho action of tho Society looks vory
narrow at this day, when there are
many lady explorers abroad with
By way of a gontlo slap at the
Star-spoils crowd, tho Advertisoi
savs "tho Provisional fintnriiiiinnt. is
daily gaining strength and uniting I
its own ranks in spito of woll-meant
but ill-considered aud radical pro
positions from some quarters." Not
that the Advertiser is against the
spoils doctrine altogether, but, sev
eral of its own clique having got
snug billots at the start, it has no
present use for tho doctrine. Hence
it can afford to locture the Star's
huugry squad in virtuous tones.
Since the Planters' Labor & Sup
ply Company has undertaken to
bear half tho expense of securing
the services of Prof. Koobele, it
only remains for the Government to
assume the other half, aud tho fa
mous fighter of plant life posts wil)
undertake tho work that has unhap
pily become necessary in this coun
try. As all that these islands have
to dopond upon for prosperity is
thoir agricultural industry, tho va
rious blight aud beetles that have
invaded that industry mustbeeradi
cated at any font,
Probably the question that come?
before President Cleveland, through
Minister Blount's report, wdl be
whether the conquest of tho Ha
waiian kingdom by display of Ame
rican arms last January shall bo rati
fied or not. It is well known that
the Minister obtained conclusive
evidence while here that tho Ame
rican forces were landed, to intimi
date the Hawaiian Government aua
crush it in case of resistance, in pur
suance of an understanding between
the American authorities and the
Hawaiian intending revolutionists.
Should tho virtual conquest bo rati
fied, the boasted traditions of A me
rican justice and magnanimity, to
ward weak and friendly nations,
would be blackened forevor.
Rev. W. B. Olesou is quoted bj
the Advertiser from the Now York
Independent, in a long article argu
ing against the destiny of Hawaii
being left to a vote of Hawaiians.
The article is in the would-be trans
cendental style of Mr. Oleson, and it
labors to show that tho Hawaiians,
by thoir bad use of tho franchise
hitherto, proved thoir unfitness to
be entrusted now with a decision of
their own fate. Mr. Olesou's ze.il
outruns his discretion. His argu
ment will naturally bo tnkon by in
telligent peoplo in tho United Statos
as showing that tho Hawaiians are
not worthy of tho franchise of
American citizenship, so much
broader as it is than tho franchise
Mr. Oloson says thoy have abused.
Therefore, those that believe Mr.
Oloson's prejudicod statements will
bo apt to conclude that annexation
is not dosirablo at present.
AN IMBECILE DEFENDER.
It is wondorful to those who do
not know tho makeshift tho Adver
tiser is laboring undor for editorial
supply how a public journal can,
as that ono does, strive to display its
ignorance of tho first priciplos of
government. Ono of tho main essen
tials of any government is money to
carry it on. The money has to come
from tho peoplo governed. There
fore there is nothing in government
regarded with a moro jealous eyo by
tho peoplo than the use that is made
of tho funds contributed by them
for thoir common benefit. Jiopre
sontativos of tho peoplo, in every
hystom ot froo and responsible gov
eminent, have reserved to thorn the
right of examining and deciding in
detail ovory sohomo of oiponditur'e
of tho publio inonoy, This ninttof
is signalized in iinportaneo by tho
practice of ruling parties, for any
given time in a country's career, in
putting forward as tho managers of
tho national finances tho most capa
ble and experienced mon in financial
affairs. Tlno managers or financial
statesmen make and lay boforo tho
people's representatives estimatos of
tho country's money needs for a eer
taiu period, and of tho resources
depended upon for tho supply of tho
needful amount of rovonuo. Tho
people's representatives have tho
privilege of modifying or rejecting
these estimatos, and, in tho moro
closely-jointed systoms of represen
tative government, a certain degree
of iuterforonco with the financial
policy, agaiust tho settled views
of tho administration, constitutes
want of confidence under which tho
government must retire or appeal to
tho people. Tho groat contral fact
wo are illustrating is that in any
froo, representative, responsible gov
ernment tho ultimate control of tho
finances vests in tho peoplo thorn
solves. At prebont Hawaii has not a free,
representative, responsible govoru
mout. Tho control of its finnucos
is in tho hauds of au irresponsible
body called into being by a rebellion
against constitutional authority. A
minister of iinauco may plan novor
so wisely, or cut tho natioual coat to
suit tho wob, but ho is utterly holp
1 loss, as events have proved and arc
proving, to prevent that irresponsi
ble, uou -representative body from
driving tho country financially from
bad to worse. Our charges against
the Provisional Government on this
! score have beon agaiust it as a whole,
i In reply to them the Advertiser has
uot ,darod ,to uttor. aa intelligent
word, but has persistently sneaked
behind tho personality of tho Min
ister of Finance. That Minister is
' on record as dissatisfied with tho
1 rato ot military expenditure, aud as
being strongly opposed to tho con
i tiuual tinkering with the laws by a
I body nover formed for that purposo.
In holding his personality up as a
! buffer to its own incapacity for deal
' ing with facts and figures, tho Ad-
vertiser is dealiug with tho Minister
' of Finance in a manner both cow
ardly and treacherous. There is a
' secret bohind tho couduct of tho
editor of tho Advertiser in this re
gard, which it may bo our disagree
I ble duty to divulge when ho has
1 spun a little moro length of the cord
that is to choke him. In the niean
i time, he is informed that his game
1 is known, and further that it is com
1 ing out exactly in tho opposite way
to that intended. The Bulletin still
lives "for tho benofit of all," aud I
will lay many a vvreatli of thorns yet j

MESHES OF RED TAPE.
j Trials and Tribulations of tho Owner
i in the Custom-House.
I Plato White, a Los Angeles physi
1 ciau, has been so tangled up in tho
Custom-house red tape tho last few
days that he was almost in despair
of over freeing himself. He arrived
from Honolulu on Tuesday with a
two-months-old Japanese pug pup.
1 In accordance with the rules of the
ship the animal had beon taken in
chargo by the purser, who inadver
tently outered it on tho ship's mani
fest. Tins should not bare
done, as pet dogs are allowed to
enter duty free. But the pup was
listed nevertheless, and it would re
, quire au order from tho Collector of
tho Port to got it from the customs
j UI novor did so much chasing for
so little return in all my life before,"
the Doctor said yesterday. "I first
, went to tho Deputy Surveyor aud
' told him my case. He advised mo
I to hire a customs broker who would
'know tho ropes.' I employed H. B.
Thomas, aud together wo went to a
Deputy Collector. He referred us
to Special Deputy Collector Jerome.
Mr. Jerome made out a froo delivery
permit for tho dog, but said he could
uot sign it till tho Appraiser had en
dorsed it with tho statement that
that howling little pup had no com
mercial value. Wo wont to the Ap
praiser aud described tho dog. lie
wrote a nolo to Mr. Jeromo saying
he knew soinetuiug about dogs and
it was his opinion that tho dog had
no commercial value. Wo wont from
the Appraiser's building to tho Custom-house
with this. Mr. Jerome
refused to accept tho note as an offi
cial notification. He sent us back to
have tho statement properly written
on tho dolivory permit. Tho Ap
praiser did uot want to give this
statement till ho was ollicially noti
fied as to tho pup's actual value, and
detailed Special Examiner Mnguire
to go to tho docks aud examine into
tho dog's value.
"Wednesday night I thought my
labors wore finished. The examiner
reported to the Appraiser that tho
dog was of no commorcial value.
Thursday morning I appeared to
have my permit properly indorsed.
This could not bo done as in tho
meanwhile another examiner had
been nosing about tho dog stores
aud ho reported that fanciers priced
bimilar dogs at 47.50 each. This tho
Appraiser wrote on tho dolivory por
mit, but accompanied with u note
advising that tho dog bo admitted
duty froo. I took this again to Mr.
Joromo. Ho said his duty was plain.
Tho dog was valued at S7.50, accord
ing to tho Appraisor, aud I would
have to pay 2l) percent duty on that.
He admitted that the dog was en
titled to free ndiiilrsiou, but said
that tho Appraisor must lirst pro-
i orlv countorbign tho permit.
I At nut tho Appraiser did.
A BICYCLE SNATGHKll.
Says Ho Took It Undor tho Influonco
I Mr. F. A. Davis had tho misfor
tune of having his cushion tire
i Columbia biovclo stolen from in
front of IJ. F.'Ehlors to Co.'s store
i yesterday evening A lantern and a
I $10 umbrella attached to tho ma
i chine were also taken. Mr. Davis
offered a reward of S1U this morning
for tho apprehension and conviction
of tho tluof. He learned to-day that
a Custom llouso guard had been
seen by several witnesses to mount
tho bicycle and ride off with it. Mr.
Davis called on tho guard and found
tho information to bo true. Tho
Customs attache while under tho
inlluonce of "root boor" had taken
tho bicycle and smashed some of tho
spokes, besides losing tho S10 um
brella. Ho promised, however, to
make good the damage, which will
probably amount to $35, and Mr.
Davis, on his part, will not press any
chargo against him.

The wind blows gently and
the clouds hover over Manoa
and there the rain softly pat
ters on the shingles. On the
lower levels, outside the realms
of the water carts, the dust
piles up thicker than rumors
as to the political situation.
The Water Works seem to
be out of a job and the Aer
motor silently pumps, pumps,
pumps and the lawns, some
lawns grow greener every
day. Cane land which other
wise would go to waste has
been made available on a half
dozen plantations by the use
of Aermotors. Managers will
understand the term when we
say that at Kahuku the Aer
motor supplies three men's
water. If it does so much at
Kahuku it will do it elsewhere.
The recent robberies com
mitted throughout the city, but
more particularly "on the

where guarding themselves
against midnight intruders.
ristols and watchmen s whis
tles are excellent things to
keep under the pillow. We
have imported some very fine
Smith & Wesson Revolvers of
the finest quality and particu
larly adapted for use on peo

We have selected none but

Honolulu is one of the few
places on the map where the
sun shines on both sides of the
street every day in the year
and this fact makes it particu
larly pleasant for persons who
enjoy an afternoon siesta in a
hammock, pleasant, not be
cause the sun shines on them,
but because there are no cold
winds to run a shiver along
one's spinal column. We
have a few Hammocks, good
ones too, that were built espe
cially for two people. We
have hammock hooks and
rings for people who have
been used to tying their ham
mocks to the trees.
By the "Australia" we re
ceived more of the Keystone
Egg Beaters, the acknow
ledged superior to any egg
beater ever sold in this mar
ket. They are easiest to
handle and easiest to clean,
and do the best work in the
Bailey's Rubber Brushes are
used extensively in the United
States for toilet purposes and
most people prefer them to
bristles. We have a few of
the small size flesh and nail
sort that we are anxious to get
rid of because they do not
rightly belong in the stock of
the hardware merchant. You
can have them for about half
the usual price.
Our San Francisco buyer
sent us some of the hand
somest Levels for carpenters
and masons' use we have ever
seen. Not only handsome but
useful, mechanically accurate,
with horizontal and perpendi
cular glasses. We have also
the cheaper variety for plain
every day work. In addition
to levels we have every sort
of tool used by carpenters and
of the finest quality. Disston's
Saws are a specialty with us.
The China steamer will be

want a brass cage for the bird

is the arrival of the "Irmgard"

assortment of Solid Brass
