NEW FIELD FOB. MISSIONS.
The Kev. Edward Everott Hah
has written a book, entitled, "A New
England Boyhood," from which wo
make the following extract: "Class

early as tho beginning of the cen

This was in 1838.
We quote this for the information
of tho "unco gnid" people from Nov
England who have taken such a pro
minent part in crying down the Ha
waiian people, barely a hundred
years removed from heathenism,
and who would rob them of thei
country and deprive them of the
ballot. The canting junto who, led i
by the ex-Reverend John L. Stevens,
persuaded Capt. Wiltse to subju- i
gate by force of arms a peacoablo
and friendly nation, to improve tho ,
chances of securing a bounty fo"
their sugar grown by contract labor, !
because forsooth tho people were
given to drinking and gambling,
might better go back to New Eng
land and carry on their system oi
reform by gat ling guns and rifles.
A correspondent in the N. Y. Nation
says of the extract quoted: "Change
in tho above tho words 'Class DayJ
to Commencement Day, and you
havo a barely exaggerated descrip
tion of tho day which marks the be
ginning and end of the preseut Har

18U3, and calls for immediato action
on the part of tho proper authori

Hawaiian reformers to do good mis

II FOAMS AGAIN.
Our morning contemporary strives
to bo itself again, after a poriod of
1 coma succeeding its humiliating
confession, somo days ago, that it
could not auswor tho Bulletin on
tho question of tho financial situa
tion. Its luador to-day begins with
a misconstruction of fact. Tho con
tents aro a hotchpotch of lies and
personal abuse. As a conclusion
tho author of tho characteristic ,
screed of rhodomontado affects a
special knowledge of tho object of
the Unitod States cruiser Philadel
phia's presonoo hero. As a protest
for his ignorant presumption the
oditor at first had to misrepresent
tho Bulletin, so as to mnko this pa
per appoar to givo the Philadelphia
a specific mission in coming here.
All wo know or havo professed to
know about tho Philadelphia is that
she camo hero to relievo the Boston,
which camo here to represent the
interests of tho Unitod States. Tho
Philadelphia is hero also to rr
prosout tho interests of tho United
States, and beyond this genoral fact
tho Advertiser knows nothing more
than tho Bulletin. In our honest
opinion tho Boston did commit a
grievous wrong against tho friondly
government of tho Hawaiiau King
dom, and in so doing cotnmittod
violence against tho interests of the
United States, which has moral as well
as material intorests in tho Pacific as
she has in tho world at largo. Her of
ficers and men who only acted under
superior orders, however, did noth
ing but their duty, honco aro blame
less and carry away no resentmout
of tho Hawaiiau people. Thoro has
novor been a foreign warship here
whoso officers havo been more agreo
able, or men more manly and well
behaved. Thoy aro especially es
teemed for thoir abstention, with a
very few exceptions, from any dis
play of partisanship in tho local
controversies arising from the vio
lont change of government. Any
intelligent reader would understand
our hopeful roforeuce to the pre
sence of tho Philadelphia. The
same reforonco would apply to the
Boston if sho reinaiuod in port and
continued to bo tho chief naval
representative of tho Unitod States.
She would right tho wrong com
mitted by herself whenever in
structed so to do from Washington.
The Adertiser and its rabid clique
would not be considered in such an
event. Thoy reprosont anything but
American principles, and dare not
discuss tho Hawaiian situation in
tho light of those principles.

cauuot account for the statement
that Mr. Bolster returnod here from
Sydney in 1881, but as a matter ol
fact I was an employee of tho late
Mr. Gibson in 1880 until in Decem
ber or that j'oar, when I was offered a
position in tho Interior Department
by tho late H. A. P. Carter. 1 also
remember working alongside of Uncle
Alick, so that he must have roturued
here before 1881.
"Another point I wish to call at
tention to, is tho intimation that the
Pacific Commercial Advertiser was
the first daily started in Honolulu.
Before my time I am told that J.J.
Ayers started a daily called tho Her
ald in 18GG. At any rate, Mr. Walter
Hill started tho Daily Bulletin in
1882 before tho Advertiser was pub
lished daily. Mr. Gibson first pub
lished tho Advertiser as a tri-weokly,
that is, ho issued it on Tuosdays aud
Thursdays, and then summarized
the whole matter previously issued
on Saturdays, which was tho regular
day for issuiug tho weekly Adver
tiser." Always Up to the Times.

The charge of malicious injury
against Captain J. N. Brown ot the
schooner Mahimahi, preferred by
Mr. Swanstou, was heard in the Dis
trict Court on Thursday and the
caFO continued until this morning in
order to hear tho ovidonco of Arthur
McDowall, co-contrnotor with Cap
tain Swaiislou. Captain Brown in
his evidence had claimed that Mc
Dowall had authorized him to work
his share, McDowall arrived from
Keawouui yesterday, and in Court
refuted Captain Brown's testimony.
Nevertheless tho J udgo found Cap

KILLING OF THE LEPER.
Furthor Particulars About tho
The train roturned from Pearl
City about 5 o'clock yesterday after
noon with tho Government soldiers
and Deputy Marshal Brown. Captain
Parker and his police, niitl several
others on board. Tho depot was
crowded witli people who expected
I to see the body of Aikualaui, tho
1 leper bandit, lauded from the cars.
; Thoy wero disappointed, howevor,
as both tho bodies of tho leper and
his victim (wife) had been left at
Waiawn. The police who were sue
, cosful iii bringing down tho leper
, wero tho lions of the hour, and re
ceived congratulations on nil sides.
They wero stopped at ovory few
steps and compelled to toll the
, slorv of thoir adventure.
I When the ollieors, six in all, ar
rived within a few hundred yards of
tho hotHo they hold a consultation
and finally it was decided to scatter
the moil. Captain Paikur assigned
the mou to different points of van
tage, and instructed them not to
' shoot until ho fired first. Parkor
went to a knoll about live hundred
yards distance, whoro ho could get a
clear view of the house. On looking
' down ho saw two children, a boy
aud a girl, hiding on tho vornnda
behind a board. Parker's heart
leaped to his mouth, as had he not
seen tho children they would have
been shot. Parker ran down to
within a fow yards of tho houso and
called to tho childron to como to
him. They readily scamporod up to
the ofiicor. After consulting with
Brown it was thought advisable to
send the boy, who was the oldest,
with a uicssago to Aikualaui, who
had not as yet shown himself. The
boy took tho message to Aikualaui
his father, who opened the door and.
after reading the note, slammed
the door in the lad's face, saying ho
would kill three policemen first.
xVfter a while tho ollieors opened
fire on tho house, some only at a
distance of twenty-five j'nrds. The
fu-silulo was kept up at intervals
until 11 o'clock, when Deputy Mar
shal Brown got behind a mango
tree just wide enough to cover his
body, close to tho house. Parkor
was a fow yards away from Brown.
The lattor made a proposition to
Parker to try and get underneath
the house, but that oflicor answered
it wou d bo foolish. There was a
space of about four feet bet weou the
ground and the lloor of tho house.
It would havo proved foolish indeed,
as tho lloor was found to be of rough
boards with cracks between each
one. At this time Parker saw Aikua
lani's head peering nioiiud tho win
dow and immediately three shots
laug out, two pas-sing within half an
inch of Blown. Parkor omptied
three shots at tho window, and the
leper disnppcaied. Tho other po
lice wero then oidered to tiro a vol
ley at tho window in order to allow
Brown to escape. This was done
aud Brown got away. Another vol
ley was omptied in the houso to al
low an ex-P. G. Foldier, who was bo-
hind a rock near Brown, to escape.
About noon tho little boy pre
viously sent was asked to take
another message to tho house, but
the lad was scared. Tho littlo girl
volunteered and sho was sent. When
sho got to tho veranda, tho father
made a noise with his feet and order
ed tho girl awav. Tho littlo ono ran
back to the ollieors. A few moio
shots wore fired, when Deputy-Marshal
Brown and Captain Parkor ro
turued to the Manana Station to
telephone to Honolulu for more
ammunition and a Howitzer to be
I About 1:30 o'clock Police Officer
Holi, who was watching behind a
i tree, exposed himself, when three
1 bullets whizzed by him, coming from
tho direction of the houso. Holi
1 omptied live shots in quick succes
sion in the vicinity of where the
I smoko issued. Shortly after Brown
aud Parkor returned. After Holi's
, live shots no more shots wero fired
, until tho discovery was mado that
tho desperate man was dead. As pre
viously reported Aikualani's brother
was sent in and reported the man
dead. Parker went to the houso and
found tho report true.
The rdlo with which tho leper had
1 boon shooting was found near him
bespattered with blood. It had no
stock, and the ollieors wondered how
ho could havo handled it. Tho gun
was a Winchester, from which eight
bullets hud been fired, aud the other
eight wore extracted by Parkor and
stuck iu his bolt. A box containing
forty rounds of ammunition aud two
shotguns, with which ho would havo
douo deadly work had ho used them,
wero also found. There was a big
hole on tho back of tho leper's head
and his brain was scattered over the
wall. Blood wa3 still llowing from
the won nil iu tlio head, so that in all
probability it was tho fatal wound
aud Holi's weapon did tho fatal
work. Thero was other wounds, in
cluding one on the right ankle, but
the blood was dry, so that theso
wounds must havo been mado early

holes, splinters ot wood lying all

15 the front of our store. By
the use of Hendry's Ready
Mixed Paints it has been made
the handsomest on Fort street,
and in painting. Jthe building
we have demonstrated, hrst:
that these paints cover more
surface than any other, and
that they are cheaper, and pro
duce a handsomer finish.. Ten
gallons will paint any ordinary
house two coats, figure your
labor by the day and you can
tell in a second just what it
will cost you to make your
house look as good as new, or,
if it happens that it is a new one
it will make it look better.
Our object in dealing in these
paints is principally for the
profit there is in it; our interest
in the welfare of the people
and our desire to see all of the
houses in Honolulu look cheer
ful outside as well as in were
other objects for our con
sideration. In offering them
to the public we do so with a
guarantee as to their quality
and adaptability to the wants
of people who wish to have
their houses well painted at
the least possible expense.
Our stock embraces all colors
for use outside or in, for floors
or ceilings, roofs or railings.
The French rat trap which
we have been selling for a
year past nas proven tne
greatest enemy the rodents of
Honolulu have ever met. We
sold one to a gentlemen at
Waikiki the other day and in
eight days he was the proud
possessor of forty-three dead
rats. He was skeptical when
he took the trap home but
now he recommends it to his
friends. If you are troubled
with rats in your house or
barn the French rat trap will
make your mind easy.
We still have some very
handsome hard wood Refri
gerators and Ice Chests good
enough to ornament any din
ing room in the City. They
are constructed of the best
selected oak and finish as well
as"- the hand of the Cabinet
maker's art will allow, and on
principles of economy of ice.
We've had good Refrigerators
before, but none to equal these.

We had an order the other
day for an Aermotor from a
gentleman who has never used
anything but wooden mills.
He saw the Aermotor at work
at Ewa Plantation, saw in
what a light wind the Aer
motor would work and pump
thousands of gallons of water
per hour and compared it with
the old style wooden wheel and
then ordered an Aermotor.
Lately the demand for large
wheels has increased so much
that we feel that they are fast
becoming a necessity to every
Colorado Oils are also in
demand by plantation engi
neers and the demand is
caused by their superior
quality. We do not hesitate
to guarantee these brands of
lubricating oils because they
are made for us under the
supervision of one of the most
expert oil men in the United
States. So great has been
the success of this brand that
oil manufacturers in San
Francisco have tried to imitate
them but in every instance
they have made failures.
There's something about the
oil that even their best
chemists fail to discover. The
genuine Colorado Dynamo,

only by us. They are in use
on many of the plantations and
