Kuad the article, "Homo as au hi
vustuioul," iu this paper. It may
bo worth many thousands of dollars,
with heaps of happiness ou tho side,

THEY LOVE AMERICA.
Tho Hawaiian National bund is
supposed to be n royalist organiza
tion; but when they played tho
"Stur-spangled Banner" last evoii
iug nt tho uiurty -go-round even tho
Hawaiians that wore there loudly
Yes, dear Advertiser, tho Hawaiian
will choor himself hoarse when ho
hears tho strains of tho "Star Span
gled Banner," for ho recognizes it
as tho uuthem of a groat and just
pooplo; a people who have always
dealt honorably towards tho weaker
members of tho family of uations.
The Hawaiian is a gentle, kindly
fellow, perhaps too much so for his
own interests. Ho welcomed tho
class of pooplo whom you ropresont,
Mr. Advertiser, and was a grand
host, giving of tho best that ho had,
and your friends wore not backward
iu taking all that was within roach.
The way your frieuds have repaid
the hospitality shown thorn is a dis
grace to the civilization you vaunt
Yes, the Hawaiian believes in tho
souse of justice of tho American peo
ple, and is fixed in the belief that
Minister Willis comes to right tho
infamous wrong perpetrated by Min
ister Stevens and Captain Wiltse.
Yes, the Hawaiian' is a confiding
fellow, and has trusted the cabal of
renegade Americans who joined
hands with Stevens and Wiltse until
trusting has ceasod to bo a virtue.
As America will bo as just to Hawaii
in 1893 as Great Britain was in L81I5,
so she will cement a friendship as
strong as that of the Hawaiian for
the British people, and the impul
sive, gentle Hawaiian will be a better
American to all intents and purposes
than the so-called "Americans who
sought to despoil him.
A PERVERTING OF HISTORY.
By tho crowding out of tho con
cluding part of our review of Mr.
Lyons' letter on Tuesday, an oppor
tunity is afforded for some observa
tions suggesting themselves origin
ally but omitted on account of space
restrictions to a single article.
There has always boon an amount
of local criticism of Hawaiiau legis
latures in quantity and degree not
fully justified by tho records. Both
under the old and the now constitu
tions there wore many things con
nected with tho biennial sessions of
our law-making body which right
thinking people had cause to de
plore. Part of the evils arose from
the same struggle between executive
privilege and popular rights which
had to be decided iu other coun
tries. It probably intensified this
contest that many of the native rep
resentatives of the people were pos
sessed of tho notion that tho rights
of tho native people were bound up
with tho privileges of their chiefs.
And nobody who calmly reviews tho
recent history of tho country can
deny that tho natives wore given
much cause for jealousy of their
own rights, and fears of being thrust
altogether into the background by
the growing power of foreign wealth,
that, session after session, seemed to
increase its sway over both legisla
tion and administration. Who is
there with patriotic feelings relating
to tho land of his own birth, that
can denounce tho national enthu
siasm and jealousy of the Hawaiian?
But, taking the legislatures of those
islands with all the cross purposes
that tortured their proceedings,
their practical legislation would
bear favorable comparison with that
of legislatures iu countries to which
wo look for patterns. They have al
ways oncouragod what they deemed
honest schemes for promoting ad
vancement iu the conveniences and
comforts of civilization. Frequently
in this respect tho natives have car
ried tho day agaiust wealthy foreign
members of old fotrv nroelivitios.
Wo have had tho spoctaclo,. for in
stance, of American members stren
uously opposing tho extension of
free schools and tho adoption of tho
electric light. One gravely told tho
assembled wisdom that the eloutric
light was at tho time ho spoke only a
toy, when for ton years previous that
improvement had been used abroad
to enable ocean steamship busiuoss
on water fronts to go on by night as
well as day, and when its general
adoption was only deferred on uo
couut of gas franchises standing in
its way for municipal lighting. Tho
uativos preferred to boliovo thuir
eyes aftor a practical exhibition of
tho light iu the streets of Honolulu
from a very imperfect plant, and the
result iu that Honolulu from being
ono of tho worst lighted towns iu
tho universe came into a front posi
tion in that respect, ludood, tho
natives, in spite of their adhesive
political conservatism, constituted
tho backbone of tho party of pro
gress in material things. Although
tho lato Legislature was not ovor
wholmiugly native, as some in times
past wore, yet tho native element in
it hold tho balance of power and
could have mado or marred useful
legislation at thoir sweet will. Still
tho volume of legislation of 1892
will compare favorably with that of
any contemporaneous body on tho
globe, A now judiciary system that
is hold to be revolutionary iu its
advance for tho bettor was passed,
virtually intact as it camo from tho
hands of tho expert commission ap
pointed to fr.uno it. Many other
useful laws might bo mentioned as
passed in tho midst of what Mr.
Lyons chooses to call chaos and
piofossos to boliovo partly justified
an overthrow of tho wliolo system
by violence. When his own friends
woro prime factors in producing
such uhnotic conditions as' appeared,
in thoir inordinate passiou for
power, it is adding insult to injury
for him to charge native influence
with bringing confusion upon legis
lation. Space forbids a thorough analysis
of Mr. Lyons' thesis ou tho right
of government by tho grace of gold
and brute force. Lot it sutlico iu
conclusion to inform tho world of
what Mr. Lyons anil his friends know
to bo true, but for their own purposes
would Btrivo to avoid having reveal
ed. Whatever of chaos there exist
ed iu tho Legislature of 1892 was
duo mainly to tho efforts of the Re
form faction to steal the powe'r that
an electorate unfavorable to thorn
had refused to entrust to their
hands. That party did not have
tho couiago to" nominate a ticket of
its own ou tho islaud of Oahir. Its
excuse was that between it and
tho National Reform party the
Liberals supposod to favor an
nexation or a republic would
creep into power. Yet when the
Legislature was constituted with the
Reform party in a hopeless minority
by itself, its leaders made a league
with the Liberal party to oust the
National Reform party's Ministry.
This they effected with the assist
ance of a fow discontented National
Reformers, who refused to acknow
ledge that Ministry as being the
chosen of their party. Thus there
was a majority revealed from the
first of the Cabinot crises sufficient
to put any Ministry out, but no
majority was found until tho close
of tho scene that, would hold to
gether to keep a Ministry in. All
efforts to obtain a presentable com
promise Ministry that would stick
and it would not have boon hard to
got ono acceptable to the country
failed through the mulish obstinacy
of Mr. Thurston and his wire
pullers, who wanted tho "whole
hog or none" for their own fac
tion. Mr. Thurston and Mr. Bush,
leaders respectively of the Re
form and Liberal partios, shout
ed in duet, "The principle! Tho
principle!" whenever a now Cabinet
appeared. Thoy meant tho princi
ple of govorumout by majority, yet
each of these loaders regarded tho
other as an impossible personality
in any Miui.itry. There was a majo
rity to pull down, but uot one to
hold up. It was a situation not un
usual iu other countries having a
similar form of government. To
overcome its diliicultius only patience
and patriotic self-denial wore re
quired, with somo "give and take"
among tho factious of which none
could rule singly. It was the deter
mination of the Reform part7 to
rulo or ruin, which ultimately pre
vailed iu giving it tho opportunity
for enlisting all the organized and
unorganized plotters against the
constituted authorities for years
previous. With those forces, aided
by tho moral support of United
States naval troops, that party has
brought tho country to its present
position. Who cau feel prido iu its
Mr. Watorhouso supported tho
amendment, which was lost on a
show of hands.

Mr. Emmoluth hoped no motion
to rofor this matlor I'd tho executive
would prevail. -A resolution of the
same iuiporl had boon in thi-ir hands
for tho past six months, but ho had
soon very little from it.
Mr. Brown hoped tho resolution
would go to tho executive, and that
tho exocutivo would put thoir foot
down, and say that they are running
this govornmout and will not bo dic
tated to. It was Bomothing un
known in auy part of tho world that
every employee of a government
should bear arms.
Mr. Emmoluth remarked that
there might bo many things in this
little country which could not bo
found elsowhoro. Mr. Browu might
have reason to reflect on tho results
if somo action such as that pro
posed was not adopted. '
Mr. Brown was satisfied with tho
way witn which tins uovorniuout
was conducting affairs. Ho quoted
tho "Proclamation," whore it ro
quostod all officers of tho Govorn
mout to hold their ollicos, with cer
tain stated exceptions. Later all
officials woro required to tako tho
oath of allegiance lo tho Provisional
Government. To adopt the propo
sition now made would bo like toll
ing every servant of tho Government
that thoro was no confidence to bo
placed in their oaths. Ho boliovod
that if tho question was put to a'
vote of tho Annexation Olub. a maj
ority of its members would vote
against tho proposition. The speaker
was as strong an annexationist as
there was in tho couutry, but ho
would uot consent to dictation of

Mr. Waterhouse raised tho poiut
of order that the Annexation Club

Regular General Session of the Exe
cutive and Advisory Councils.
Tho regular weekly session of tho
Executive and Advisory Councils
was hold this afternoon. There was
somo dola' in opening on account of
tho lateness of President Dole in ar
riving. It was 1:52 o'clock when
tho mooting was called to ordor by
Councillor Allen under the rulo as
senior muinbor, with whom woro
present Ministers King, Damon aud
Smith; Councillors Bolto, Water
house, Eua, Brown, Tonnoy, Nott
President Dole arrived a fow min
utes later, also Councillor Emmo
luth. Secretary Uodgors read tho min
utes of last meeting,
Minister Smith road a petition,
from a Japanese lesideut of Mauna
kca street, praying that licouses bo
issued for bathing houses. Ho
moved rofoiunco to tho Judiciary
Air. Brown regarded it as a mat
ter of health, aud moved tho peti
tion be referred to tho Hoard of
.Minister Smith considered it a
matter for police rogtiiatiuii.
Mr. Eiumuluth seconded the
Minister Damon had. asked the
Auditor-General to pass upon all
accounts duo up to October 1st,
which ho believed tho treasury was
in a position to pay.
Mr. Browu from the Judiciary
Committee reported on tho bill to
provide for holding both terms of
Second Judicial Circuit Court at
Wailuku. While thoy boliovo tho
change was ono that should eventu
ally bo made, they considered that
iu view of tho approach of ono of
tho terms it was inadvisable to make
tho change at prosout. Adopted.
The same committee reported
aniondmouts to tho bill relating to
the marking of animals. Received
for consideration with bill.
Mr. Brown obtained au extension
of time for tho same committee on
tho matter of tho separation of the
ollicos of President and Minister of
Minister Smith read letters from
H. Hackfeld & Co., having tho na
ture of a petition, relative to passen
gers by tho Pacific Mail aud Orien
tal cv Occidental steamship com
panies. Thoy proposed that in caso
of sickness among passengers ou
board stoamors touching at Hono
lulu, the sick passengers should be
allowed to bo landed hero at the ex
pense of tho companies, until they
could bo carried to their destina
tions after recovery. Minister Smith
stated that it was considered by the
exocutivo that, aside from tho ques
tion of agreement with our laws as
they exist, the Chinese linos woro
not entitled to the favor askod from
thoir action in discriminating against
passengers and freight at this port.
Mr. Suhr denied that freight had
over been refused. Thoro was no
freight offered to them. If there
was, ho had no doubt satisfactory
arrangements could bo mado. As to
passengers, rates differed according
to tho stylo of accommodation offer
ed by different steainors. It would
he a great hardship to have thoir
steamers detained at quarantine,
perhaps for a month, at Sau Fran
cisco, whore the Chinese could not
bo lauded until thoir papers wore in
spected. Ho thought the request
should bo granted.
Mr. Brown thought tho executive
woro right in declining to grant tho
request. Ho moved that tho execu
tive action be approved.
Mr. Watorhouso was of opinion
the matter had only boeii submittod
as information. This view being
confirmed by the President, the
further consideration of tho matter
Mr. Emmoluth said thoro was a
military drill last night of all tho
forces, and thoro wore only two em
ployees of tho Government iu tho
ranks. He therefore moved a reso
lution, that all employees of this
Government uudor 15 years of ago
shall enroll themselves in ono or
other of the volunteer military com
panies, and that all over J 5 yours of
age shall enroll themselves iu the
Citizens' Guard, within ton days
from this ditto.
Mr. Brown moved tho resolution
be referred to the Incentive Coun
cil. Ah it stood it would compel
lady school teachers to join the
The Native Rescuer Wants More
Than Politeness for Pay.
A delivery wagon belonging to
the Japanese firm, Itohau, ran away
yesterday morning on tho city front.
A native drayman employed by Hus
tace & Co., who was standing near tho
Inter-Island wharf, saw the runaway.
Watching a favorable opportunity
ho jumped ou tho rear of the wagon
aud grasping the reins, succeeded in
bringing tho animal to a standstill
near tho Kiuau wharf. The Japanese
driver arrived shortly aftor out of
breath, aud mounting tho seat said,
"Thank you." and was about to drive
off when tho native asked if that
was all he was going to get for
catching tho runaway. The two
had quite a spat over tho matter
until tiually the Jap told tho native
rescuer to accompany him to the
store. At tho store the native was
givou $2 by tho firm, and ho departed

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 vou 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 lor 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
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 tfiis: 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
die 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 goods 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 rtek 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.
