THE MILITARY INQUIRY. .
Our evening contemporary has
obtained an advanco report of tho
doings of tho Councils' committee
to investigate tho military expend
itures. It appears that the commit
too and officers of the National
Guards are agrood that the pay of
privates is extravagant, being $27
a month higher than United States
soldiers receive. When, a few months
ago, the Bulletin called attention
to the military extravagance, the P.
G. organs gave the sneering reply
that what bothered the opposition
was the existence of forces to sus
tain tho Provisional Government,
citing the ancient chestnut about no
criminal feeling the "halter draw
with good opinion of tho law." The
bald fact is and thoro is proof for
it to the world now in this military
investigation that the revolution
ary junta knew that they could not
count on the support of the people
at large on the merits of either their
personality or their cause, therefore
to maintain their unlawful position
they took advantage of their posses
sion of the people's treasury to bid
most extravagantly for an adequate
defensive force. Now when they
find that tho resources of the treas
ury are not equal to maintaining thoir
military extravagance and making
even a show of conducting the ordi
nary services of the country with a
semblance of respectability, they vir
tually confess tho criminality of
thoir method of self-maintenance.
They know as well at tho beginning
as they do now what fair wages for
soldiering wore, but they desperately
resisted tho protests of a few inde
pendent spirits in thoir Councils as
well as tho indignant popular re
monstrances against their wasteful
course. President Dole was always
the first to defend tho military ex
travagances, which have been as
notorious in the matter of officers'
salaries as in that of tho privates'
pay, and on the most reckless scale
in regard to tawdry uniforms for
officers and men, and equipments
for tho supporters of tho Govern
ment outside of the regular forces.
Tho outside world in general and
the American public in particular
have now. out of the P. G.'s own
mouth, the testimony whereby its
blatant boasting of strength scat
tered broadcast may be discounted.
It is made patent to all Christendom
that the Provisional Government is
using the substance of the people,
over whom they by foul means ob
tained control, and without tho peo
ple's consent, to domineer over the
people and exclude them both from
their rights of self-govornraent
which it has never been pretended
the people have forfeited and thoir
privilege of choosing their own po
litical destiny. The beginning of
the collapse of military rule indi
cates the hollowuoss of the boasting
persistently indulged in since tho
first rebuff the P. G. received from
the United States Government, that
the present rulers would hold on as
thoy began, for years if necessarj',
until an administration favorable to
annexation came into power with
tho United States. The bald fact is
already staring tho P. G. in tho face,
that it is utterly impossible to main
tain a purely military dominion ovor
tho country, and at tho same time
afford tho moans for carrying on a
decent civil administration.
The success of Mrs. Annie M.
Beam, of MoKeesport, Pennsylvania,
in the treatment of diarrhoea in her

Shortly aftor dark Commodore
Simouson's scow arrived ,with a largo

would not stand the shock.
Captain Davies of tho Claudiue
called into tho Bulletin Office at 5
o'clock for a paper. Ho said ho was

Tho Claudino whilo pulling on tho

BOARD OF SURVEY.
At tho request of Capt. Stott,
Messrs. Theo. H. Davies & Co. ap
pointed tho following board of sur

report: Capt. J. A. King, Minister of
the Interior; Captain Parry of tho
County of Merioneth, and Mr. T. Sor

U. S. S. ADAMS TO TUE RESCUE.
As both tho steamers Aikoku
Maru and the Claudine had to re
sign tho work of tugging at the
Miowora yesterday afternoon, it was
necessary to seek fresh reinforce
ment of steam power. All the avail
able resources of tho coasting fleet
not already engaged woro exhaust
ed. It therefore became necessary
to solicit United States naval assist
ance. Major J. H. Wodohouso,
British Minister Resident, accord
ingly applied to Admiral Skorrott
for tho services of tho U. S. S.
Adams. Tho Admiral kindly grant
ed the application and issued orders
for the Adams to prepare for the
work. Shortly before 7 o'clock this
morning the Adams steamed out oJ
tho harbor to tho base of operations.
GRAND TUQ Or WAR.
As tho timo of high tido approach
ed, tho Adams was soon to display a
signal. The Likoliko and Hawaii
weremanouvring as if for positions,
while tho tug Eleu was more rest
less. At ono o'clock all tho stpam
ers seemed to lie strainiug on the
hawsers connecting thorn with the
Miowora. Crowds along tho water
front aud elevated positions in
town gazed anxiously at tho scone.
Every eyo was. eager to catch the
first sign of motion in the huge
hulk. As tho hours slowly passed
hopo gave way to despair at success
for this day at all events. At !l:iK)
there was not a budge of an inch to
reward tho prodigious efforts of the
aggregation of steam tugging power.
The work of unloading the steam
ship goos steadily on.
Perhaps if tho fine woathor con
tinues, the S. S. Australia may drop
an availing lino of rescue to the
COURT OF I.VQUIRV.
JJritish Minister Wodoliouso states
that it will be his duty to convene a
court of inquiry into tho diauater us
soon as tho attempts to float tho
ship shall have resulted ono way or
tho otlior oither in suceoss or fail
ure. Ho regrota that thoro is not a
national ship in port, so that it
should bo a naval court of inquiry.
Tho object will bo to ascortain on
whom tho blamo, if any bo found,
should rest for tho disaster.
QUESTION OK A SPECIAL BOAT FOR VIC
TORIA. Mr. E. W. Holdsworth, of tho firm
of Theo. 11. Davies & Co., kindly
furnished information to tho effect
that negotiations woro opened with
tho Wildor's Steamship Co. hoviug
in view tho sending of tho Claudino
to Victoria, but failed bocauso tho
prico asked was beyond all reason.
Tho same explanation applies in tho
ease of tho Aikoku Maru. It has now
been decided to send the Miowera
passougers by tho Australia.
The estimated value of tho steam
ship Miowora, with her cargo and
ship's supplies, is $150,000.
Able and valuable servicos woro
rendered on board tho stranded
steamship yesterday by a largo forco
of bluejackets from tho U. fc. b.
Philadelphia, sent out in tho steam
launches and barges of tho huge
cruiser. Thoy were in command of
Lieut. Wood, aided by Eusigus Wil
liams and Marvel.
Tho Miowora has a double- bilge
keel, as well as double bottom, wliich
in her present plight is a groat pro
tection. To this construction is at
tributed tho prevention of springing
tho plates, with tho consequent ab
sence of making water reported by
the board of survey.
Yesterday as tho scow was draw
ing alongside the Miowera, a big
lump of coal thrown overboard nar
rowly missed tho head of one of tho
occupants of tho scow.
A largo crowd of citizens gather
ed at noon on board tho German
iron bark Paul Isonborg, at tho P.
M. S. S. wharf, watching the opera
tions of tho towing squadron.
Tho barkentiuo Planter is loading
bananas originally intended for the
Miowora, aud may leave for San
Francisco this afternoon.
Mr. Paul Neumann is tho only
man thus far discovered who can
not tell how to get tho Miowora off.
"Gonial Paul" says ho doesn't know
tho first thing about it. He'll never
do for a judge.
This morning Mr. W. E. Rowoll,
Superintendent of Public Works,
and Mr. F. M. Swauzy, Lloyds' agent,
wont off to consult with Captain
Stott as to tho best moans of using
tho available steam power.
Passengers by the Miowera from
Australia are well pleased with tho
arrangements made by tho agents
for thoir comfort while detained in
Honolulu. Thej' are quartorod in
the Hawaiian Hotel for the most
part. Two of the cabin passengers
who called at tho Bulletin office
this forenoon were unstinted in ex
pressions of appreciation of their
accommodations. They expect to
loavo hero by tho S. S. Australia.

Ministor Damon said tho question
had boon raised in tho papers as
to what constituted a surplus and
whether tho Govoruinout possessed
an actual surplus. Ho gavo figures
showing tho total debt to bo $3,3!)8,
27C. Of this amount thoro was uo
demand duo which tho Govern men t
was not proparod to moot. Tho as
sets of tho Government ho estimat
ed at 56,000,000, taking tho estimate
of 1890 as a basis, deducting $700,000
and adding valuo of crown lands.
Thoro woro outstanding bills
amounting to SKi.OOO, besides $18,
000 duo on tho drodgo a total of
01,000. Against all demands thoro
was actual cash in tho treasury of
150,958. Thoro was 53,000 and odd
to tho credit of tho Road Board,
and 17,000 and odd to that of tho
School Board. Theso amounts made
up nearly 168,000 available for
mooting ail demands and carrying
on public services. The Miuistor
concluded by giving figures furnish
ed by tho Ponmastor-Gotioral relat
ing to tho Postal Savings Bank.
On motion or Mr. Watorhouso the
fiuancial report was accepted and
ordered on lilo.
Ministor Damon stated that his
dopartmout had provided for facili
tating tho landing of goods from
tho stranded steamship Miowora, in
cluding tho opening of a bonded
warehouse for reception of said
Mr. Tonuey presented the report
of tho special committee on military
expenditure. The regular enlisted
forces cousisted of 179 officers aud
men. lu tho opinion of the com
mittee this forco is larger than now
required, and they roeotnineud a re
duction of tho regular forces to 126
officers and men. Thoy are also of
opinion that tho salaries of officors
should bo modified so as to bring
them within reasonable bounds for
continued service. Tho committee
recommend that future enlistments
should bo made at a lower rate of
wages than now prevail, and that
certain peiquisites uow allowed tho
men, such as shoes, should bo dis
continued. With the reduction of
tho force of enlisted men, there also
should bo a thorough reorganization
of the commissary department,
whoro the' think a material saving
could bo made. Tho report signed
by E. D. Teniioy, J. Ena and Alox.
Young concludes: "Your committee
have received much valuable assist
ance from otlicers of both tho regu
lar aud volunteer forces, aud have no
doubt, from their suggestions aud
advice, that an efficient and com
plete guard and protection of the
Uovornmout property can uo main
tained with t lie force recommended."
Mr. Morgan movod tho adoption
of tho report. Carried.
Minister Smith introduced a bill
to amend tho law relating to the
marking of live stock. Its intention
was to stop tho nipping off of

olution to authorize tho payment of
money out of the general road fund

specific appropriation of 30,000
being exhausted. Carried.
STRANDINO OF TUE MIOWERA.
Mr. Watorhouso inquired if there
was any law requiring pilots to wait
for the port physician before going
on board au arriving vessel.
Minister Damon said when he
eamo into office his first work was
to improve the system of the Post
Offico, and next ho had turned his
attention to tho Custom House. A
regulation of tho Board of Health in
1891 prohibited tho pilot to board
any ship befoio tho port physician
had made an inspection of her bill of
health. It was his intention to ak
that this regulation bo rescinded,
aud a substitute bo promulgated
requiring the pilot to go on board
at tho earliest possiblo opportunity
and tako his chances of being quar
antined. Ho regretted that the ac
tion resulting in the resignation of
Dr. Trousseau with his serviceable
steam launch had not been post"
Miuistor Smith had made tho
fullest investigation into tho circum
stances and concluded that tho ao
ciduut to tho Miowera was not due
to any fault of the pilot. Steamers
had boon coming hero from Austra
lia for fifteen years and no accident
had heretofore happened. The late
accident and that to tho steamer
China reconlly wore duo to the want
of care of tliomastors of tho steam
ships in approaching tho shore too
near before receiving a pilot. Thoro
was a few minutes' delay in waiting
lor tho executive health oiheor, and
a little more in tho pilot's lighting
tho buoyg on tho way out. But all
reasonable diligence had boon ob
served, aud it was only fifty-five
minutes from tho timo tho steamer
was signaled ton miles off until sho
was on the roof.
Mr. Watorhouso was vory glad to
hear the explanation. Ho had como
from the Coast with the snmo cap
tain, and his brothor by tho China,
and on both occasions tho masters
woro much aunoyed that tho pilots
did not meet them before getting
near the harbor passage.
Minister Smith repeated reasons
for exculpating tho pilot.
Ministor Damon said tho subject
of reforming port regulations had
been taken into consideration boforo
tho recent accident.
Tho bill for acquiring land for
Government uso passed its final

There are many advantages
to be derived in buying goods
from dealers who make the
wants of their customers a
daily study. Twenty odd years
contact with people in a com
munity as small as Honolulu
enables one to judge their
likes and dislikes and their
wants in a business way.
When we order goods from the
United States or Europe, we
get what we believe is most
wanted by the people rather
than what we think is good.
In following this course since
the inception of our business
we have been able to offer
you at all times new goods.
We have no shelf-worn stock,
nothing to warrant our hold
ing "clearance sales" or to tell
you we are giving you goods
at half price. As in every
other line of business we often
give you double value for your
money, but that is, because
you get from us a superior"
quality ot goods. Mixed
paints have been sold here for
a long time but they, were of
a quality that could be im
proved upon: hence the advent
of Hendry's Ready Mixed.
We told the manufacturers we
wanted the best paint ever
sold here and we got it; the
people who buy it from us get
something better than they
have ever used before and
better than they expected.
We have added to our num
erous lines that of Flower Pots
and Vases for flowers or plants.
Two or three of the latter are
of exquisite design, and with a
little work with paint and
bronze powder may be made
beautiful ornaments for parlor
or veranda. These extra em
bellishments are not necessary
except to the lady whose taste
runs to decorative art. Hand
some Majolica pots are offered
you in some stores, but while
they are pretty to the eye they
are death to the plants, lack of
porousness in their composition
kills their practicability in so
far as plants go. Ours are of
Terra Cotta and the sort that
plants thrive in.
"Hope deferred maketh the
heart sick." We have waited
and hoped that an assortment
of lamps ordered from Eastern
manufacturers would have
reached us a month ago. But
the wind was against the
"Planter" and consequently
"agin" us. Now that they are
here we have forgotten our
I, anxiety to get them sooner
and our heart rejoices in the
fact that we are able to offer
you to-day the largest and
most varied stock of Hanging,
Stand and Banquet Lamps we
have ever had the pleasure of
calling your attention to.
There is always a lamp wanted
either to replace an old one or
to improve the appearance and
light in some particular room.
Our new arrivals all have the
celebrated Bradley & Hub
bard burners, which for light
ing qualities are pre-eminently
the best. With our lamp
goods we have a few very
handsome Onyx Top Tables
which should catch the eye of
people of refined tastes.
Hardwood Ice Chests and
Refrigerators like Pansy
Stoves are always in demand,
consequently we are import
ing them twelve months in the
year, In iron -stoves we have
found, after a great deal of ex
perimenting, that there is noth
ing quite so up to the mark as
the "Pansy." It burns wood
or coal, a quick baker and an
economist in the way pi fuel, a
matter for consideration by
the housewife and the bread
winner as well. Our sales of
this style stove average, the
year 'round, two a day.
For the plantations we have
the most complete stock of
Packing in Honolulu. We
mention this because the mills
are starting up and packing is
one of the articles most
