Our ovouiug nunoxntion coulom
porary suggosts that tho Provisional
Uovormnont got out of its tempo
rary status, aud start a now coucoru
at tho old stand uudor tho namo,
Btylo and firm of "Tho Common
wealth of Hawaii." This is another
virtual admission that annexation is
lost cause, auu tno only nropor
thing for tho Provisional Govern
ment to do, in that case, is to resign
in favor of tho Constitutional Gov
ernment of tho country.
With all that has boon charged
against Hawaiian institutions under
tho monarchy, they compared favor
ably in character and conduct with
those of tho most advaucod nations,
monarchical or ropublieau. Wo have
never hail to record such disgraceful
Booties in our Legislature as aro
periodically reported oF the leyi'da
tivo bodies of Prance, Groat Britain
aud tho United States. In fact, most
of the stuir sent abroad about our
recent past history has been fabri
cated as a pretoxt for a disgraceful
aud lawless revolution.
AFTER THE EVENT.
Judging by all tho comment on
the lato six-oarod boat race, one
would think that the Hoalaui Boat
Club had a patent right on winning.
Tho assumption that something was
wrong becauso the Hoalaui boat was
behind at .the turn, aud came homo
at a slower pace than it went out, is
unworthy of sensible people. There
was much more reason for surprise
at tho defeat of tho Myrtle crew last
year than at its victory this year.
Por many years tho aiitlu Boat
Club has maintained a healthy, un
broken organization with crews al
wa3s more or loss in practice. It
has seen different rivals rise aud fall
in its time, but uouo which was able
to wrest aquatic honors out of its
hands. Tho Myrtlo oarsmou know
the Honolulu harbor course like a
book, and had tho propor steady
stroke down fine to make it in a
givou time. Thoy had to row against
an admittedly faster boat than their
own at Pearl harbor last 3'oar, and
thoy had an imporfect knowledge of
tho water aud bearings. This j-ear
they had provided themselves with
a boat that was a beauty to behold,
and quartering themselves some
timo in advance on tho course they
knew it thoroughly by the day of
tho race. Tho Hoalaui crew, on tho
other hand, wore found with a boat
that was onlj best before their op
ponents had procured a new one.
They trained almost entirely in tho
very different water of Honolulu,
having but little practice before the
event on the championship course.
Although a heavier crow with pro
bably a higher average of muscular
strength, they showed by the wa'
thoy set out to win tho raco that
they needed a great deal of techni
cal training. Indeed, ono would
have thought on seeing their tactics
that thej' had novor oven road of
how races were won by the famous
oarsmen of the world. While tho
Myrtlo crow had learned exactly tho
stroke that would take them over
tho course in a given timo, the Hoa
lani crew virtually pulled them
selves all to pieces iu a desperate
attempt to secure a lead in the
first quarter of tho raco. It was
tho old story, told so often iu single
scull as woll as crew races of cool,
calculating skill playing excited, uu
rockoning exertion as the angler
plays tho salmon to its death. Talk
about selling the race, which has
been indulged in, without tho pro
duction of a scintilla of evidence, is
unbecoming iu tho extreme. It is
an insult to the club whose crew has
been fairly beaten, and a contempti
ble means of detracting from tho
clean honors of tho winning crow.
In deploring tho evils of betting on
contests of strength and skill, a con
temporary omitted to mention ono
that its own remarks illustrate,
nnmoly tho inability of some peo
ple to accept the loss of their stakes
with good grace and gentlemanly
NEW KIND OF SURPLUS.
Now wo havo an explanation of
tho treasury surplus from tho Advor
tisor, for which wo aro duty aud
truly grateful. Tho receipts of the
Provisional Govornmont for tho first
eight mouths of its existenco have
been 5907,021.70, and tho expendi
tures in tho samo period Sl,298,27il.
79. This shows nu excess of 5330,
319.09 of expenditures over receipts.
This is a now kind of a surplus. In
ordinary political economy a surplus
has usually boon understood to moan
an excess of rovonuo over what had
boon estimated to meet tho neces
sary expenditures of a definite finan
cial period. TJioro can bo uo actual
Burplus declared until tho closo of
tho biennial period for which tholate
Legislature mado appropriations.
A for muuy periods tho LeyUla-
turo has appropriated more monoy
than tho probablo rovonuo tho only
means possible of obtaining a surplus
has boon tho restriction of such ex
penditures as tho Govornmont had
in its discretion and control. Thus
far, with an oxcessivo expenditure of
over $330,000, tho prospect of a sur
plus at tho closo of tho present
period is small, aud can only bo rea
lized by tho starving of ordinary
services that tho public has a right
to have liberally maintained, and au
abandonment of schemes of neces
sary public improvements whicli
tho people aro outitled to have car
ried out promptly. Mr. Thurston,
it is noticed, in his hysterical roply
to Mr. Sprockets, ha attempted to
throw dust iu tho American poo
plo's oyes by calling a temporary
balance in tho treasury a surplus.
Ho knows that there is no surplus,
aud he knows that tho sales of
bonds not at par as he claims, how
ovor effected by tho Provisional
Govornmont would, if his political
opponents wore in power, be seize J
upou by himself, with all tho
rancorous avidity that characterizes
him, as tho occasion for bitter de
nunciation of tho rate at which tho
public debt was being iucroasod.
Apart from tho Savings Bank depo
sits, in themselves loans from tho
public, tho Advertisor informs us
Hint tho Provisional Govornmont
has borrowed 5152,000 on bonds iu
tho eight months. This amount has
boon Unvoted mainly to rofuuding
tho treasury for advances made to
tho branch of expenditures legally
derivable from borrowed money.
Thus tho ordinary rovenuo and ex
penditure aro virtually placed in
thoir natural rolatious to each other,
affording a fair criterion of the
quality of economy to which the
llawaiiau Islands aro being treated
by thoso now controlling its affairs.
And tho result is that wo have in
ouo-third of tho biennial period
an amount of over S330,000, not a
surplus but a deficit tho result of
tho military rulership of tho Pro
visional Government. This is at tho
rato of nearly a milliou dollars of
deficiency for tho wholo period of
twenty-four mouths. Wo do not
claim that it is fair to assumo that
tho proportion will bo carried out to
tho oud, but such a claim would be
nioro honest by far than the cool as
sumption of tho Adveitisor aud Mr.
Thurston that a treasury balance on
any given day is a surplus.

Goal Consumption on Steamships.
Tho coal consumption of tho At
lantic greyhounds is enormous in
total, but in proportion to" tho power
gonoratod it is not at all largo. Tho
Amorican linors Now York and
Paris, for iustauco, burn about 330
tons of coal por day, or about 80,800
pounds por hour, and maintain nbout
18,000 indicated horso-power, whjch
is equivalent to a coal consumption
of about 1.71 pounds por hour por
horso-powor. Tho average for all
tho fast ships with triplo expansion
engines, liko tho Now York, Paris,
Majoslio, Toutonio and Fuerst Bis
marck is probably only nbout 1.75
nouuds nor horso-nower hour. In
tho caso of tho'Umbria and Etruria
and similar ships which havo only
compound onginos tho rate is higher.
For example tho Etruria burns as
much coal as tho Now York and
more than tho Toutonic and de
velops far loss power than either of
them, whioh illustrates tho groat
advance mado iu inarino engineering
by tho introduction of tho triplo ex
pansion system. Tho now ships
which aro now boing built on tho
Delaware for tho American lino aro
to havo quadruple expansion on
giuos, those boing the first of that
typo to bo constructed. Tho results
will bo awaited with interest.

With the resources provided
Hawaii by nature, (and by such
resources we mean the fine
quality of building stone), a
lighthouse could be construc
ted on the point where "the
Miowera struck so that such
accidents would be of the past
and sea captains would not
have the hours of anxiety that
make young men old. If it be
necessary to have a lighthouse
halfway between the entrance
to the channel and the dock let
the old one remain where it is,
but that fact should not prevent
the erection of a new one, the
expense of maintenance would
be light compared with advan
tages to all seafaring men. If
the government had a million
dollar reserve fund it might
copy New York City in its ex
penditures after the fashion of
the Bartholdi Statue and make
one of some prominent poli
tician and call it "Blank En
lightening his Constituents"
instead of "Liberty Enlighten
ing the World." This would
be too extravagant for this little
government, and we would
suggest a plain stone light
house painted with Hendry's
Ready Mixed Paints, that are
guaranteed to withstand the
semitropical storms which we
sometimes experience in Ha
The long-looked for Pfluger

there came to us fence wire
both black and galvanized, in
No. 5 of the former and Nos. 4.
5, 6 and 7 in the galvanized.
For the past few weeks there
has been something of a famine
in the wire market and some
people have been obliged to
delay repairs and improve
ments until how. In connec
tion with the large trade in
wire which we have built up
within the past few months we
have revolutionized fence build
ing on the Hawaiian Islands by
introducing the "Improved
Lock Fence" the materials for
making which we sell with
the regular wire used in
ordinary fence building. The
economy of a locked fence
sticks out all over it like points
on barbed wire. The expense
of digging post holes and buying
posts is almost entirely dis
pensed with; in the new style,
posts may be put fifty feet
apart and the fence is stronger
than, the old style with posts
every five feet. A whole herd
of cattle may run pell mell
against a locked fence and
find themselves sprawling on
the ground while the fence re-
mninc inf-ai-r Tn flip tmittf-r nf
expense, it is cheaper than the
old style for the first building,
and repairs may be made by
one man where the old style
would require two or three.
Quite a number of managers
of plantations are using our
methods of fence building and
the demand will increase with
the arrival of the thousands of
coils of wire by the "Pfluger."
We've had opinions from
people to whom we sold tons
