CHINA AND BRAZIL.
Now Treaty Signed Between tho
Mr. Goo Kinij Chinese Commer
cial Agout, received intelligence by
the O. & O. S. S. Oceanic on Monday
that a treaty had been signed be
tween China and Brazil looking to
tho immigration of Chinese by tho
thousands into Brazil. According
to tho treaty no other nationality
but Chiuose will bo allowed access
into that country as laborers for a
term of twenty-live years.
The Brazilian Govornmont recog
nizes tho fact, it is said, that no
tropical country can bo built up
without Chinese labor. Chinese
will be allowed in Brazil either as
laborers or merchants and no restric
tions whatever placed on them.
About 150,000 Chinamen have al
ready made preparations to emigrate
to the new home. Tho homo gov
ernment has telegraphed the treaty
to representatives in tho United
States, and it is believed a good
many Chinese will leave there for
The Chinese merchants in Hono
lulu have no tender feeling for the
United States Government on ac
count of the Geary Law, and several
have voiced the report that the
making of a treaty between China
and Brazil is only a ruse to draw
the Chinese out of America. This
if true will no doubt bo considered
good news for the people of tho
Jean Jassin Hives.
In your obituary notice of Mrs.
Victoria Kahoa Kaauumanu Tolman,
it is stated that her father was tho
late Jean Jassin Reeves, commonly
known as Father John, of the Cath
olic Mission. It is possible that her
father may have been connected
with the Catholic Mission in this
country, but ho had nothing to do
with it at tho date of Mrs. Tolmau's
birth in 1815. Tho first Catholic
Missionaries to Hawaii, Messrs.
Bachelot and Short, arrived at Ho
nolulu in 1827. Reeves, Mrs. Tol
man's father, is probably tho same
man about whom an amusing de
scription is given by J. Arago in
the narrative of tho French cor
vette "L'Uranio's" voyage round
the world. In chapter CXIV. of
that work (London 1823 ed.) there
is given an account of a Mon. Rives,
a French pailor, who lived at tho
Courts of Kamohameha I. and II.
This was evidently Mrs. Tolmau's,
Hoalanis and Myrtles.
Clarence Macfarlane, the bow oar
of the Champion Healauis, strained
himself slightly on Tuesday after
noon while the crew were out for a
practice spin in the harbor, and his
place has been temporarily taken by
A. L. C. Atkinson. It is expected,
however, that Clarence will bo able
to take his seat when tbo great race
comes off next Saturday week.
W. D. Armstrong, who is second
stroke in the Myrtle crow, has not
been feeling well during the past
few days, and if ho does not pick up
soon, Arthur Brown will manipulate
his oar in the race. The othor mem
bers are in the pink of condition.

ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON.
Tho Dlstlngulsed Author Gives an Infor
mal Talk to tho Thlstlo Club.
Tuesday ovoning a delegation of
three ollicors of tho Scottish Thistle
Club called on their illustrious
eountrymau, Mr. Robert Louis
Stevenson, .at Sans Souci, Waikilti,
to solicit an informal talk before tho
club, prior to his departure for his
adopted homo at Samoa.
Mr. Stevenson was found reading
in tho bay window of tho beautiful
Inuai, with his back toward tho Paci
fic Ocean, just as its wavos were re
ceiving those rare kaleidoscopic ef
fects from tho setting sun which
form one of tho ouohantmonts of
this Paradise of tho Pacific. Upon
tho self-iutroduction of tho dele
gates thov wore received with tho
most uualVectod courtosy and invit
ed to seats. Their businoss was
stated without dolay, and Mr. Stovon-
son uiu not hesitate a moment m
cordially expressing his pleasure at
having tho opportunity of serving
an organization of his countrymen
in tho manner requested. The only
question with him was that of time,
as his intention was to depart by tho
steamer duo on Thursday. Eight
o'clock Wednesday evening was,
however, agreeable to him, aud tho
businos of tho delegation was thus
settled inside of five minutes.
To say that the Thistle men wore
elated at tho kindly reception of
their mission is putting it very mild
ly. They were simply charmed with
tho brotherlikiuduess of the man,
so that his distinguished position in
tho republic ot lottors became a
secondary iniluenco over them. A
question from ono as to Mr. Stoveu
sou's home at Samoa opened up a
conversation of a quarter of an hour,
in which tho famous writer, without
tho slightest effort, revealed tho
charm aud sparkle of his printed
pages. In fact, tho dolegates on
taking leave felt they had been privi
leged with an informal talk, in ad
vance of tho ono solicited lor their
society, which thoy would never for
get. From Polynesia to Caledonia
tho subjects changed in swift transi
tion, eliciting most interesting facts
and charming fancies from Mr.
Stevenson's rich- endowed mouiorj'
and facile intellect.
A special meeting of tho Scottish
Thistle Club was hold tho same
evening to rcceivo tho report of the
committee. As tho time was so
short it was deemed impracticable
to take a larger place than the club
rooms aud invito tho general public.
Members were allowed to bring
friends to the seating capacity, and
arrangements wore made for put
ting the hall in good shape. Before
tho audienco assembled, tho hall,
dovoted to meeting and reading
room purposes ordinarily, was made
very attractive with added decora
tions to the usual wall adornments
Tho chaudoliors wore decked with
wreath? of stephauotis and ferns,
tho ono over tho platform having
also some real Scottish thistles, "the
symbol dear." Tartan plaids wore
hung on tho walls, and there was a
handsome bouquet on the platform
Mr. Slovouson was warmly ap
plauded as ho entered aud advanced
to the platform, by an audience that
crowded the hall.
Mr. A. S. Cloghorn, honorary
Chief, was invited to a seat on the
Mr. Thos. Lindsay, Chiof, in a few
well chosen words, introduced the
Mr. Stovonson coming forward
smilingly addressed his auditors',
" Ladies and gentlemen and brither
Scots." Ho trusted they had uot
como there under a misapprehen
sion. Ho was no public speaker.
If thero was ono thing that frustrat
ed truth aud obfuscated the public
mind it was the gift of public speak
ing. His reason for consenting to
give tho talk, lay in that weakness,
or strength, that bound Scots' hearts
together wherever thoy mot each
othor. Ho could not say why thoy
wore proud to be Scotsmen, tho fact,
remained that thoy were. It was not
that their land was sunny like these
tropical isles, and its climate was not
lovely. Scotland's history contain
ed littlo that was not disgusting to
people of humane feelings. That
long brawl which was called Scot
tish history contained scarcely one
object that they could havo any pa
tience with. First thero was a long
period during which tho wild Colts
worecuttingoachothors throat's and
trying tho thickness of each other's
slculls. (Joining down a littlo lur
thor wo come to tho time of Sir
William Wallace, tho Guardian of
Scotlaud, a man far ahead of his
time,who, if uot particularly amiable,
had some humorous qualities. Fol
lowing him came Robert the Bruce,
a little humorous aud certainly ami
able Ho was something of a rogue
(laughter) that kind of a political
rogue which it may uot bo indeli
cate for mo to mention, as 1 havo
como from Samoa where wo are all
politicians (laughter), aud speaking
to you hero who are all politicians
(laughter), and tho most offensive
kind of a rogue is a politician.
(Loud laughter.) Bruce figured in
a time when tho nobility were grasp
ing at everything in sight, oach
without any regard or tho rights of
properly in his neighbor's cow.
Coining to tho Reformation they
had two great characters John
Knox and Mary Queen of Scots
and ho must confess to a foiblo for
Mary in his sympathies, (Laughter.)
It was true sho blow her husband up
and committed other littlo eccen
tricities, but she was rather a good
follow. Scotlaud owed iiiuuh to
John Knox. ICvory Scotsmau in his
heart of hearts know that perhaps
to him more than any one else be
longed tho credit of their country's
advancement in education, But
they could not find anything nmia
hie in Knox, "ho who never feared
tho face of iniiii." Following tho
great Rofonnor caino a wholo
host of priestlings. Persecutions
and trials for witchcraft then bo
eamo general. Tho groat strugglo
on bohalf of tho Solomu League and
Covenant was a conspicuous foaturo
of those times. Tho Covenantors
were very interesting, but could any
body ask him to sympathize with
them? Thoy suffered thoinsolvos to
bo killed and thoy died iutorosting
ly, but nobody should allow them
selves to bo Itilled simply bocauso
thoy could not kill others.
Mr. Stevonsou found difficulty in
arriving at tho real facts of tho suc
ceeding period for thoy could not
behove conlouipomr historj', but
where thero was po much smoke
thero must havo boon some firo, just
enough to light a cigarotto. Coming
then to tho 15, thoy tried to start
auothor govornmont and failed, but
thoy sacnuou tnomselves with some
degreo of dignity. Tho speaker re
ferred to the hiding of Prince Char
lie when anybody by betraying him
might have made a small fortune.
This exhibition of unselfish devo
tion showed that there was some
little good in Scotsmen aftor all.
Thero Scottish history ceases.
A little further on there camo a
vory interesting patriot ho selected
ono typo a huIko of tho High
Court of Justiciary. He was a vory
celebrated lawyer but unconsciona
bly cruel, "llaug!" was his ono
word. Tho speaker did not recollect
his name at tho moment, although
it was at tho tip of his tongue. Pro
bably Lord Braxfiold, whoso favorito
maxim was, "Hang a thief when he's
young, and ho 11 no steal whou he's
nuld." Tho most apt sample of
this gentleman's wit was givon dur
ing tho trial of Muir and Palmor for
showing sympathy with tho French
Revolution. Ono of tho prisoners
displayod a great deal of eloquence
in his own bohalf, whilo "my lord"
sat listening. Tho criminal camo to
a point where he said that all great
men had been charged with being
criminals, not oxcopiing even Jesus.
"And 1 think ho was haugodl" was
tho cold observation from tho bench.
A story was told of his lordship's
butler giving Uim "notice, his rea
son being that ho could not got
along with "her leddyship." The
master ejaculated, ''God, an' if ye
were married to her!" (Laughter.)
So ho had ran his oyo over a long
part of Scottish history aud found
nothing but what was desperately
cruel aim brutal. lot there was
something good. This was in the
boautiful songs and ballads of Scot
laud. Thero was Patrick Walker,
grim enough, but whose songs "Vero
filled with human sympathy. Ho
would como to ono, howover, who
summed thorn all up, that was Wal-
tor Scott. (Applause) Scott was
an incarnation of kindness aud good
uaturo. This brought tho speaker
to the close of his talk, and ho con
cluded in the following eloquent
I would recommend everybody to
read, not only tho Waverley novels,
but tho life of Walter Scott by hii-son-in-law.
Lockhart's Life of Wal
ter Scott, is in places crushiugly
pathetic. When you riso from its
perusal vou are melted, consoled,
benefited. Another thing I feel
vory strougly. I received a book tho
other day called '"The Stikkit Min
ister," with a dedication to mysolf
which affected mo strangely, so that
I could not read it without a gulp.
It was addressed to mo in tho third
person aud bade mo remember those
"Where about the graves of the martyrs
the whaups are crying,
His heart remembers how."
Now, whon I think upon my latter
end, as 1 do sometimes, especially of
lato years when it seems less immi
uont, I feel that whon I shall como
to die out hero among these beauti
ful islands, I shall have lost some
thing that had been my duo my
native, predestinate aud lonoited

And I feel that 1 shall never quite
attain to what Patrick Walker calls,
in ono of those pathetic touches of
which I havo already spoken, my

At the conclusion of tho speaker's
remarks, a hearty vote of thanks by
acclamation was convoyed to Mr.
Stovonson for his eloquent speech.
Mr. W. F. Reynolds, ono of tho
guests, sang a song to his own accom
paniment at tho piano. Whon Chief
Lindsay thou called on tho musician
to play for " our usual doxology," ho

Since this business was es
tablished and the people no
ticed that a little above the or
dinary amount of energy and
enterprise were among the at
tributes of the management,
it has been a pleasure to a few
persons to put upon the Ha
waiian Hardware Co., the title,
"the fresh young firm." In
order to please every one,
even those who look upon our
success with a jealously inclin
ed eye, and to remove ima
ginary appearances of fresh
ness we have completed ar
rangements whereby we con
trol the entire product of a cer
tain salt producing company in
this district, and offer to the
people of these Islands a pure
white salt of superior grade
at a shade less than they have
been accustomed to paying
under the Salt Monopoly. Our
arrangements are such that we
can furnish either one bag or
a thousand on short notice.

The building occupied by C.

is the latest to take the newest
and best remedy for prema

throughout the city are being
touched up to such an extent
that when the old residents re
turn from their World's Fair
jaunt they will think there has
been a building- boom in Ho-l
nolulu during their absence.
Toilet sets are not often
broken and when they are
it is generally at an inconven
ient time. We have a large
stock of them suitable for
these times when people re
quire the maximum quality at
the minimum price. Our sets,
handsomely decorated, go to
you at prices 'ranging from
three dollars up. The hand
somest are in the makai win

tell you the price.
The difference between good
and bad sporting ammunition
is demonstrated every season.
It is unnecessary for us to say

of the sort used by the sports
men in the States and if you
use them you will not have to
