THE DAILY BULLETIN.
Pledued to neither Sect nor Party,
But Established for the Benefit of All.
MONDAY, OCT. 23, 1893.
lu justico to Mr. Cocil Brown as
councillor, it should be said that ho
opposed tho guarantee of interest
ou O. li. & L. Co.'s bonds. lie voted
against indofiuito postponement,
which was in amendment to his own
motion to lay tho bill on tho table.
Perhaps some of tho others named
by a correspondent as in favor of
tho bill wore only desirous of tabling
it, but the passage of tho motion to
indefinitely postpone the measure
left nobody any ohauco to voto for
it. The majority that effectually
killed tho bill, by a narrow shave of
one vote, knew from experience that
the" tabling of a bill in the provi
sional legislature does not mean its
last appearance. This is proved by
tho dozens of acts passed since one
day when the councils tacitly agreed
that they were not thero to make
new laws. Some were passed at a
favorable opportunity after lying
apparently dead "ou the table" for
STAR CHAMBER SCARE.
For the past fow days a majority
of the members of the Councils have
been wearing a faraway look which
has been variously interpreted. It
was whispered that the Queen was
authoritatively informed on the
matter of restoration, and therefore
Bho was ordering new uniforms for
the household guards, and the Star
of Friday evening says "some excite
ment was created over the news in
the secret session of the councils"
on Thursday last. After the doors
of the star chamber were carefully
locked, and the keyholes stuffed
with cotton wool, tho ponderous
load which weighed upon tho bosom
of the assembled wisdom was dump
ed ou the floor and proved to be
what is commonly known as a
"mare's nest," and "tho councils"
voted themselves a sigh of relief and
some ice water and, having shaktm
hands with themselves on the dis
covery of nothing, adjourned with
out having carried into effect a res
olution to have all the cannon on
the verandas loaded with a double
charge of grape and cani&ter.
COLONIAL KAIL SERVICE.
Enterprise has never been more
meanly rewarded by some of its bene
ficiaries, than in tho case of the treat
ment accorded bj- the United States
and British governments to the
steamship service between America
and Australia. That it has been a
most valuable service to the interests
of both nations there has never been
a question raised. Yet if it were not
for the public-spirited enterprise of
the government of New Zealand,
with the assistance it has obtained,
sometimes by hard work, from other
Australasian colonies, the service
would never have been begun or,
having once started, been maintain
ed through several renewals of con
tract. Hawaii has aided in assisting
the international accommodation "to
her little best ability. By a late is
sue of the Auckland Star it is learn
ed that the San Francisco mail con
tract, which expires next mouth,
will be renewed for another year,
when the parliamentary authoriza
tion for the service will cease. It is
believed by the Star that the days
of the service are numbered, "unless
some more substantial appreciation
is manifested by the United States
and English postal authorities."
The Star gives some particulars of
the discouragements met by tho
colonial authorities in continuing
Owing to tho reduction of foreign
postages and the determination of
the Imperial postoffice to enforce
Postal Union regulations, with re
gard to the apportionment of tho
charges for mail carriage, the ser
vice cost Now Zealand last year over
$37,000 in excess of postages it col
lected, "All efforts to get these
charges reduced," says the Star, "or
to obtain more liberal treatment
from tho American government,
have heretofore failed." While the
United States government pays
about 550,000 a year to the Oceanic
Steamship Company, as owners of
two of the three steamers employed,
it refuses payment of any subsidy
to the third steamer, owned by tho
Union Steamship Company of Now
Zealand, which may carry United
States mails for uothing so far as
the United States is concerned. This,
too.iu face of the fact that tho colon
ies make no discrimination whatever
in their payments to the colonies.
The Star summarizes the attitude
of tho United States government to
the service as follows:
For twenty years tho Australasian
, colonies have striven in vain to os
tublish fraternal commercial rela
tions between tho groat republic and
those rising lands. They have been
mot bx stolid iudifforonce, or prom
ises which have iiovor boon fulfilled.
Although ProBidout Harrison in the
lust message ho sunt to Cougreni be-
foro ho rotired from oflico, roforrod
to tho uood for devising moasuros to
counteract Canadian competition
with China, Japan, and Australia,
thero is no' substantial reason for
expecting that his successor will do
moro than Prosidont Harrison him
self did to encourage foreign trado
by tho granting of subsidies.
Tho Star says tho Colon ios can
not oxpoct tho British Government
to pay a special rate for tho bouofit
of tho United States Government or
American railroad companies. At
tho close of last year tho Britisli
postoflico, by euforciug tho strict
lottor of tho Postal Union regula
tions, placed an additional charge of
about $10,IXX) upon Now Zealand.
"They did not disguiso the fact,
however," says tho Star, "that tho
Postmastor-Gonoral might be in
clined to consider more favorably
the claim to special consideration of
a service which should pass through
British territory." It is expected
that, at the coming session of tho
New Zealand Parliament, tho pro
motors of tho Canadian-Australian
Line will bo ou hand to offer that
country a connection with their all
British service. This will probably
bo through a connection by a local
steamer at Fiji, which, it is said,
would give an equally speedy mail
service, both with America and
Europe, to that now obtained by
the San Francisco route, lu con
cluding its article tho Star says,
"Whether the American Government
will rise to the occasion and mao
an effort to retain its hold upon
Australasian commerce, remains to
bo seen." According to the annex
ationists of Hawaii, it is not com
merce of its own, but the "control"
of other people's commerce, which
tho United States wants in the Paci
fic. It is to be hoped that tho
administration of President Clove
laud will, bv its treatment of the
more than half American mail ser
vice between Sau Fraucisco and tho
Colonies, show that it knows which
is the right placo to begin at for
making tho llag of the Uuiou glori
ous in the Pacific. There is not the
least doubt that there is room for
both tho Amerioau aud tho British
steamship sorvicos, whose rivalry
will only stimulate an increase of
trade aud travel calculated to ensure
success to both.
Letter From Mrs. Gortz.
Will you please allow me a little
space in your valuable papor. You
sometimes kindly furnish your roacU
ers with tho proceedings of the jury
trials; you overlooked it at Mr.
Gort's trial. Perhaps some would
bo pleased to judge for themselves,
where did his Honor Justice Froar
take the evidence from. There were
2G tins opium in a shoe case. Port
Surveyor Sanders sa3-s he found no
opium. Collector-General Castle
says ho found no opium. Deputy
Collector McStockor made a large
speech to hide his carelessness about
swearing that entry sworn entr)
calls it his Ex. Smith in his argu
ment against a now trial before
Judge "Whiting. But still Mr. Mc
Stockor in his long speech forgets
to tell that he found this op'um.
Now comes Stratemeyor, it. seems
that he only was a show-man put
on the stand, as 'he knows nothing
about this opium business. The
attorney for defendant let rest the
prosocution as there was nobody
who found opium. Only 2(5 tins of
opium weie shown in a wooden box
no shoo box. A Chinese dealer
had to lest tho opium if it was not
a mixture of bricks and dirt. He
found it to bo opium, no bricklayer
transformed the stuff this time.
Mr. Sanders says the man who
found this opium was discharged, it
looks rather suspiciously against the
P. G. than against defendant, or
they would have kept witness in
custody. The Attornej'-Genoral finds
no proof nor does the jury, they
think only that it belongs to Mr.
Gertz, so stated His Excellency in
The imprisonment is false, but we
can be proud of such good govern
ment, IJussiau stylo. Wo must be
obedient, imperial, subject. "What
a pity, though, that these rulers are
so partial in dealing with people
they "think" are handlers of opium
for instance, tho officials that stole
tho opium from the station house
aud with people caught importing
opium with tho stuff in their hands,
some of whom they lot off with a
fine like what they give a poor
Chinaman smoking a pipeful, in
stead of punishing them . like the
ones they only "think" are smug
glers. Anna Gektz.
What Next P
Distinguished authorities in the
United States have said that the
Provisional Government of Hawaii
is the strangest the world has over
seen. A provisional government is
presumably set up by a majority
over a conquered minority, for tho
purpose of maintaining order, until
tho people to bo governed have an
opportunity to choose tho form of
poruianont government desired, and
tho individual who is to l;u tho head
of that government. Tho hoad of
such provisional government is gen
erally tho leader of the conquering
majority whoso rule is martial. Tho
suppoiitiou was, after tho 17th of
January, that tho so-called provi
sional government would protect
persons and property until suoh
time as annexation to the Unitod
States was either secured or refused.
Most certainly it was not supposed
that tho self-appointed junta would
proceed to amend aud enact laws,
even of a general character, much
less acts of a personal nature, to
bolster friendly corporations at the
expeude of the people over whom
for tho momout thoy exorcised
authority. But this is just what
our mastors for tho nouco hnvo pro
ceeded to do.
The wookly (lonoral session of tho
so-called provisional legislature, hold
ou Thursday last, had boforo it a
bill to guarantee four percent inte
rest upon &)00,000 of tho Oahu Rail
way and Laud Company's bonds, or
in other words to put upon tax
payers a bunion of $!1G,000 nor year
for fifty years, or a subsidy of 1,800,
000. If such a proposition had boen
made by tho Hon. Wm. Whito of
the Legislature of 18i)2, and sup
ported by his friends, language
would have failed for tonus of in
dignation. Tho inon who would
have bceu loudest in denunciation
of Mr. Whito would hi,vo been the
very persons who tried to railroad
tho measure on Thursdav last,
namely: Samuel M.Damon. William
treachery of Unitod States Ministor
Stevens and Captain Wiltso of tho
U. S. S. Boston, Ministers of tho
Provisional Government of Hawaii.
Acting with tho Ministers woro
Councillors William F. Allen, Henry
Watorhouso, Cocil Brown, C. Bolto.
elected to office by tho so-callod
Committee of Safety.
With possibly ono exception
evory ono of tho seven persons who
voted tho subsidy to tho O. R. & L.
Co. has a direct or indirect interest
in tho bonds of tho compauy. As
the bill was undoubtedly a Govern
ment measure, though introduced
by a councillor, it may bo said that
the Ministers wore defeated, and
should at onco tender their resigna
tions to tho Unitod States Minister
Stevens' succossor, aud perhaps
they may. AxTi-Jonunnv.
Politics and Gospel.
The political missionaries of Ha
waii are iust now Bpreadinir them
selves all along the line of populous
centers in tho United States, bidding
the American, people to como in and
partake of their gospel feast of steal
ing a nation, aud robbing tho child
ren of their patrimony, whom thoy
wore supposed to cherish and do-
feud. The latest "laborer" in this
plundering business is Pardon Baker
of Hilo, who at latest dates was
holding forth iu Chicago ou the
same old weary, wornout, thread
bare lies, such as, "Hawaiians have
recently asked for annexation," "Ha
waii requests Columbia to help her
to secure civilized government, to
gether with a string of scriptural
phrases distorted, and parable, tho
honest meaning of which is porvort
ed from the doctrine of doing as
you would be done by.
I have said much lately iu illustra
tion of how the church and the
world have amalgamated, that is, if
we were to take tho annexation
political parson as a proot; out Kinu
eavon forbid that the belief should
gain currency among any consider
able number of people, native or
foreign, that Christianity sets up
money-bags as Ruler, for nothing is
made more plain than that the mon
opolist who ainiB to "coutrol" tho
avenues of industry and sources of
wealth is not even a believer iu tho
religion that was founded iu Judea
some 1800 years ago.
The sort of political Christianity
) which is just now devoting itsolf to
the salvation of the annexation club
and tho resurrection of Pearl harbor,
has "land boom" and syndicate and
bayonet written all over it, and the
fact that it can engage nearly all the
American parsons of the Hawaiian
Evangelical Society, proves that it
can employ a number of politicians
who have jawbone for hire by the
night or month, and as their
churches at Hilo aud elsewhere can
spare thorn for the annexation
stump, it would surely bo a hard
ship to allow them iu future to
waste their holy sweetness and light
ou the heathen land, where they
confess to their labors having boon
in vain, aud a syndicate of tho peo
ple might raise the required amount
to buj- out their lauu acquired by
mortgage from the natives, and re
quest the lot to experiment ou tbo
Soutag and Evans type of heathen
nearer homo. Too much milk and
houoy and flesh-pots, and corner
lots ou their hands for higher rates,
are beginning to surfeit the anoint
ed teacher, and whou the whole
army of political preachers throw
themselves into the annexation
breach as a "forlorn hope," their
unanimity becomes too oppressive
for tho aboriginal who desires only
sufficient of his own earth to live on.
The political religion of the Hawai
ian Evangelical Association is an
ever changing quautit', and if it
must come to a question of whether
the native is to chose between its
creed aud chaos, it is probable
that he would accept the unknown
as something which could not bo
more intrinsically immoral and un
just than the political parson's lat
tice work of slander and robbery.
The curious spectacle is presented
of tho press of tho United States
calling the Rev. Mr. Baker and his
mission by uncomplimentary but
aprpopriate names, but that does
not disconcert Mr. Baker and his
tribe in tho least.
The moral of it all is, that tho
aggressiveness of the party known
here as "missionary" is a live reality,
and that their cheek is bigger than
the mammoth, aud their efforts to
owu other people's rights prove
them eminently fitted to dwell on
the largest of all continents iu pre
ference to these small islands, and
as for their so-called religious teach
ers now stumping tho United States
-the free press of that country has
shown thorn up in such a light as to
convince the reader that those
apostatos have not enough morality
for themselves, and their further
influence would only contaminate
any average community of pagans.
The four Chinese who wore cap
tured at Ewa by Detective Larson
and assistants a week ago, and charg
ed with having cite fa tickets in jo
session, woro Bontoncod to pay a line
of $00 each. During the trial their
counsol raised tho point that the
Court had no jurisdiction ou ac
count of tho arrest having boon
made in Ewa, The objection was

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 hold 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 the cost between the old
styJe 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
rity. 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 troods are not
,put together cheaply for the
purpose of selling 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.
