There is considerable trtlk without
kuowledgo going on about tho straud
iug of tho Miowera. For ixistauce,
it is freely asserted that thw green
light on tho harbor front is princi
pally for the use of pilots and coast
ing vessels. As a matter of fact the
light is placed on all admiralty and
other charts, and in the authorized
"Lights and Lighthouses' Jjook of
the year 1892, also in all sailing
directions for entering tho -port of
Honolulu. A captain of a British
war vessel is allowed to take a pilot
once that is, the first time ho enters
the port and after that, night or
day, he has to enter without one.
Somebody whose opinion a contem
porary publishes would appear to
think that an established light on
the "now you see it and now you
dont" plan is all right. Perhaps it
THE INCREASE IN DEBT.
Elsewhere appears the statement
of the public debt presented by the
Minister of Finance to the Councils
last Thursday. While it may bo
perfectly proper thus to represent
money shifted from one .fund to ano
ther as public debt, yet the deduc
tions from the exhibit fairly stated
are not to the discredit of liuauciug
under the monarchy as compared
with that of the oligarchy. Tho
treasury under the monarchy loan
ed public improvements dependent
on loans $126,000 in round, numbors.
It had also a balance on hand when
taken over by the oligarchy, against
which there were some outstanding
bills awaiting tho passage of the Ap
propriation Bill. The bill only be
came law about the very date of the
revolution, so that it was impossible
for the bills in question to have been
paid under the monarchy. So much
for all the political capital dishon
estly made about a legacy of iloatiug
debt left by the monarchy. If the
treasury had not loaned public im
provements that $126,000 it would
have had money in hand for the pay
ment of all ordinary obligations
forthwith. Now tho Government of
the oligarchy acknowledges that or
dinary revenue has received back
$121,000 of that advance to public
improvements afforded under the
monarchy. Yet with all the boast
ings of an era of ecouom, under
what has been proclaimed abroad
as "the best government the islands
ver had," the confession has to be
made that the public debt has in
creased nearly $4000. A reduction
of the debt however small would
have proved economical administra
tion, subject to the question as to
the quality of service rendered with
the economy. Strangely, however,
while an increase of only less than
$4000 is admitted in the public debt,
the official returns show, as stated
the other day, an actual deficit of
$330,000 in the running of the gov
ernment for eight months.
tho term "bankrupt" to the Bulle
tin, following close upon a mali
cious attack on our credit in San
Francisco by tho editor of tho
Advertiser, in his capacity of corres
pondent of tho Associated Press,
forbearance coasos to bo a virtue.
This matter of tho Bulletin's
financial position has a public inter
est, from its being usod for political
as well as other purposes by tho
editor of the Advertiser. In his
writings for both tho homo and for
eign press, ho has used the alleged
woaknoss of tho Bulletin financially
to prove that the cause of auti-au-
noxation is at a very low ebb m
those islands. Eveu. taking this fact
iuto consideration, however, we
should not trouble tho public with
any notice of Mr. Arthur Johnstone's
characteristic vagaries in his favorite
role of libeling, were it not that
there is a very intimate relation sub
sisting betweou that very man and
the present position of the Bulletin
office's affairs. Mr. Johnstone was
Grst business manager of tho Bulle
tin Publishing Company. He had
tho benefit of a business ready estab
lished on a fair paying basis, besides
which he received for running ex
penses the first mouth or two a mat
ter of about two thousand dollars
advanced by stockholders. Yet bo
sides tho debt placed against the
concern b those advances, he re
signed the management after a few
months to leave his successor a
legacy of two or three thousand dol
lars of debt to outside creditors in
Honolulu and San Francisco. These
two separate series of indebtedness
have been all but wiped out, while
an addition of $5000 worth of new
printing plant has been made to tho
establishment, which is largely paid
for the final instalment not falling
due until a date in next year. With
tho exception of the balance on our
new plant, the concern unlike when
it got rid of Mr. Johnstone's man
agement owes not one cent in San
Francisco, where Mr. Johnstone ima
gined, probably from his own record,
that ho could strike a deadly blow
at our credit.
So much for Mr. Johnstone's appli
cation of the term "bankrupt" to the
Bulletin. A word more as to the
question of good taste in the use of
the word "bankrupt" by this parti
cular individual. The records of
the Supreme Court show that the
haughty crier of "bankrupt" against
others was discharged from all his
debts not very long ago without his
many creditors for a largo aggregate
amount receiving one cent in the
dollar. Thore is no disgrace neces
sarily in being unfortunate in busi-

PEBBONALITIES IN POLITICS.
Pure personalities in political dis
cussion aro to be avoided by respect
able public journals. There are
times, though, when the personal
records of men in public lifo are
necessary to be discussed, for arriv
ing at a full understanding of a
political situation. "Measures and
not men" makes a good motto in
general, but measures cannot al
ways be fully canvassed out of rela
tion to their individual advocates or
opponents. At the same time it iB
well-known to all newspaper men of
any experience that undue atten
tion to insignificant persons is
odious to the public. Doubtless the
public also is not interested to a
great extent in the private affairs of
a newspaper establishment. Wheu,
however, insignificant people ob
trude themselves across the path of
an influential newspaper, to make
political capital out of its business
affairs and to impair its influence or
injure its credit, the broom must be
brought into play to wipe tho
noxious creatures aside.
Our morning and evening local
contemporaries, at frequent inter
vals in tho past six or eight mouths,
havo spoken of the Bulletin as be
iug in a dying condition. Latterly
the evuniug shoot has been inoro
quiet ou this subject, assuming a
tone of lofty itidilforeucu regarding
the paper its promoters figured on
killing imide of thirty days, The
Wild in Arithmetic.
In looking over last night's Star I
noticed an articlo headed, "Eugland
after Hawaii," and ou reading it dis
covered some marvellous figuring on
the part of "One who Knows."
He states that Claus Spreckels
controls 10 plantations employiug
5158 hands at an average wage of $15
per mouth, yet he makes out the to
tal amount of wages paid by Spreck
els to be $92,824 per annum. A very
simple calculation will show that
5iri8xl5$77,370 per mouth or$928,
440 per annum.
He also makos one-tenth of a cent
a pound on (50,000 tons $1,200,000 in
stead of $120,000. "One who Knows"
may know a great deal, but he
doesn't know much about arithme
tic, and the best thing he can do is
to go to tho Y. M. C. A. and take
lessons of P. C. Jones.

This is the season for south
erly winds and with them usu
ally comes more or less sick
ness of one sort or other, gen
erally fevers. Just why this
should be the medical and
scientific men know, we do
not. The doctors prescribe
the cures and the scientists
the preventatives; if you be
lieve in the old saying that
"an ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure," you
will prefer a closer touch with
men who give you that which
keeps sickness away to those
who give you unpleasant things
to swallow after disease has
taken hcjld of you.
Several years trial of the
Ozonator has convinced the
people of the United States
that it is the best and least
offensive of any of the hun
dreds of compounds sold for
the purpose. During the cho
lera scare in New York a year
ago thousands of these little
contrivances were sold and the
terrible disease was kept off.
We got a couple of dozen at
the time and sold them to peo
ple who use them in different
parts of the house and say they
keep the atmosphere of the
rooms always fresh. We re
ceived a lot of new ones last
week and if you wish to reduce
the dangers of sickness to the
smallest atom it would be well
for you to order your Ozona
Last week we had an order
from one plantation for the
wire and materials for build
ing five miles of Locked Fence
and the order did not come to
us until the manager had care
fully" calculated the difference
in tne cost between tne old
style and the new. That the
locked fence will be adopted
by the plantation managers
there is no doubt once they
realize that a stronger -and
better support is cheaper at
6c. than the conventional red
wood post at 1 8c. Work it
out from this: your posts in a
locked fence may be set fifty
feet apart, between posts, and
at a distance of six feet are
the spring wire stays which
cost 6c. each, fastened to the
wire with patent washers at
15c. a pound and weighing 28
pounds to the 1000. Calcu
late also the time required to
dig post holes and in taking
up the slack. With the new
style there are fewer posts to
dig and the arrangement for
fitting the stays and washers
takes up every particle of
slack and leaves the wire as
taut as a miser's purse strings.
We will be pleased to answer
all inquiries regarding this
fence either in person or by
letter. A sample in the rear
of our store will convince the
most skeptical of its superio
We sold some "Aloha" Mats
last week to people who wish
to convey to their friends the
idea that the latch strings to
their homes usually hang out
side. These goods are not
put together cheaply for the
purpose of sellinp; at the low
price we ask for them, but are
really of a fiue quality, the best
that England can produce.
After our advertisement last
week was set up we opened a
dozen cases of fine Bird and
Parrot Cages. They are of
the best quality with all im
provements whereby the dan
ger of losing the bird is mate
rially reduced. The Parrot
cages are of tin, well put to
gether with safety wire floor,
so that they may be cleaned
without risk of the bird flying-
off. They are in various
shapes; square, oblong and
round, and the bird that won't
whistle "After the Ball" when
it gets inside of it is no use.
A year ago we boomed the
Hendry Breaking Plow to an
extent that brought it to the
attention of plantation man
agers until it is .now recog
nized as the only good breaker
on the market.
