Tho flag of Canada was waving ovor

THE MONROE DOCTRINE.
When tho Provisional Government
was on tho point of making a sill
exhibition of itself, in its joy at bo
ing fully recognized by the Russian
Government, tho Bulletin asked,
"Whore is tho Monroo doctrine?"
The Star with its usual aflluouoo of
wisdom replied that tho Monroe
doctrine had nothing to do with a
mere act of recognition of a friendly
government. It would seem, how
ever, that the Monroo doctrine is
seriously involved in this country's
new relations with Russia. Ac
cording to tho morning organ
of tho Government tho United
States instead of taking caro of
all her own interests in the
Western Hemisphere is to solicit
the aid of Russia and possibly
France to maintain her now univer
sally acknowledged claims in tho
Pacific, as against Great Britain and
tbi Triple Alliance. Ouo part of
the Monroe doctrine is to have no
European intorferouco whatever in
American affairs, and another is
that America should strictly avoid
being involved in any European
complications. If tho xVdvortisor's
suppositions have any foundation,
then the Monroe doctrine is a
thing of tho past. And if European
nations are going to staud over the
boiling pot of Hawaii, with claims
of being entitled to a hand in tho
making of the broth, tho persons
responsible for putting this country
in a like unsatisfactory position to
that of Samoa are es-Minister John
L. Stevens and tho group of Hawai
ian adventurers who plotted with
him to destroy tho independence of
tho Hawaiian Island1'.

WHO CONTRACTED THE DEBTS P
"This debt was contracted under
the monarchy," mumbles the Adver
tiser in virtually confessing that it
told an untruth yesterday about the
P. G. having paid off tho national
debt. The fact is that of tho
"nearly four million dollars" of
debt, as above acknowledged, the
amount of $229,337.23 lias been in
curred iu tho less than niuo months
of the Provisional Government.
Receipts from tho Postal Savings
Bank are properly included, being
simply borrowings from the people.
Now how is it? In the fifty years
of the monarchy since tho restora
tion by the British, the country in
curred $3,181,185.51 of indebtedness.
This amount is obtained by deduct
ing what tho P. G. has borrowed
from the net indebtedness at this
date. If tho country had been run
ning into debt for fifty years at the
rate it has gone since tho P. G. took
charge, the national indebtedness
would to-day be ovor $15,000,000.
All that tho presout Government
has paid on account of the national
debt has been $80,933.80 of in
terest, according to tho last two
quarterly statements of the Reg
istrar of Finance. Or, if fifty years
is too far to go back, lot us take it
for the nineteen years from tho ac
cession of Kalakaua. Had tho debt
beou increasing all that time in tho
proportion that it has douo tho past
nine mouths, the national indebted
ness to bo recorded to-day would be
nearly six million dollars instead of
less than four millions. Tho worst
of it is that there is less to show, in
services for tho public benefit, for
tho debt incurred by the Provisional
Government than thoro is for any
equal obligations fastened on tho
country by any administration un
der tho monarchy. Iu tho matter
of wanton wastofulnoss the morco
uary soldier business of our present
rulers fully parallels the Saiunan
mission of Kalakaua.
After a painful illness of ovor five
years, Mr. S. M. Carter died at his
residence, Nuuauu avenue, at 5:30
o'clock yesterday afternoon. Tho
malady that ultimately carried him
off was long since recognized as
fatal, and caused him so much suffer
ing that it is wonderful how long ho
withstood tho siege.
Samuel Morrill Carter was born in
Honolulu on the 27th December,
1838. Ho was the third son of Cap
tain J. O. Carter and his wife, Han
nah T. Carter. Tho mother survives.
Tho deceased was ono of six chil

O. Young and John H., all of Seat

and Florence, of this city.
Mr. Carter was a most estimable
citizen. His pleasant disposition
was evinced in a sunny demeanor,
aud ho was woll liked by all who
met him in business or social rela
tions. Mr. Carter was a wholesale
and retail doalor iu wood and coal,
aud was doing a prosperous business
before his health broke down. Tho

that a 150-ton load of human beluga

that its groat powor is exerted with
out tho slightest jar.
That tho idea of the whool camo
to George W. G. Forris like an in
spiration is npparout from his state
ment: "Wo used to havo a Saturday af
ternoon club, chiolly of engineers, at
the World's Fair. It was at one of
thoso diuuors, down in a Chicago
chophouse, that I hit on tho idea.
1 remember remarking tuat i wouiu
build a wheel a monster. I got
some paper and began sketching it
out. I fixed tho sizo, determined
tho coustrucaiou, tho number of cars
wo would run, tho nunibor of people
it would hold, what wo would
chargo, tho plan of stopping six
times in the first revolution and
loading, and thon making a com
plete turn in short, before dinner
was ovor I had sketched out almost
tho entire detail, aud my plan has
novor varied an item from this day.
Tho wheel stauds in the Plaisanco

His fellow-engineers laughed at
tho idea, said that it would not
work, and that no way could bo
found for revolving tho great mass,
and advised him not to risk his
reputation upon such a wild pro
ject. But ho persisted, completed
the plans, and, submitting them to
the directory of tho fair, asked for a
concession. The managers wore
reluctant to give even a shadow of
recognition to a scheme so daring,
and it was not until tho middle of
December, 1892, that ho was assured
of a right to exhibit that marvel of
engineering skill. In five mouths
the 2200 tons of iron and steel neces
sary for the wheel wore molded into
form iu Detroit, taken to Chicago
aud put together, aud so perfect
wore tho plans that each piece fitted
to its place as accurately as though
formed on the spot.
Only loss wonderful than tho de
signing of tho wheel was the plan
ning for putting it into position.
The foundations for tho towers were
started thirty-five feet bolow the sur
face of the ground aud were built
twenty feet square aud of solid
cement. Heavy steel bars wore buried
ill this cement and to these tho
towers wore bolted, making it impos
sible to ovorturn tho whool without
uprooting tho foundations. Tho
axis upon which tho wheel turns
woighs seventy tons, and this groat
weight was lifted 1-10 feet in tho air
aud sottled in its sockets without
tho least difficulty. Segment by

Mauy plans had been considered
for applying the motive power, but
tho one finally decided upon was an
endless chain operating on two
sprockot wheels. To be effective
tho wheol had to bo perfect in its
revolutions, and not until tho ma
chinery was started was tho bold
dosigner Buro that success was his.
But everything worked as planned,

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
Miowcra 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 tor this little
government, and we would
suggest a plain stone light
house painted with Hendry's

The long-looked for Pfluger
arrived on Friday and with it
there came to us fence wire
both black aud galvanized, m
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 now. 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
its the ground while the fence re
, mains intact. In the matter of
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."
