THE DAILY BULLETIN.
Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But Established for the. Benefit of All.
WEDNESDAY, NOV. 1, 181)3.
If tho Star man had consulted nho
passenger lists in tho genuine news
papers, ho would have found the
is nothing surprising in tho j
u's absence to the people who
oaptniu's ansouco to the peopl
were amused by his jolly acting on
tho deck of tho stoainor after tlin
gangway was drawn.
Up till 1837, contrary to tho Star's
statement, tho United States navy
was only occasionally represented
here. Thoro was seldom a visit of
"a fleot" prior to that time, and, Up
to tho docking of Honolulu otT the
British Admiralty list three or four
yearB ago, tho Union Jack was about
as frequent as tho Stars aud Stripes
in naval evidence at those islands.
As a change is to be made in tho
position of Vieo-Cousul at San Frau
cisco, two candidates, Sam Moulser
rat and Will Sopor are out for the
position. Montsorrat was rocom
meuded by Consul-Gouoral Wilder
as his personal choice aud tho Ex
ecutive Committee of tho Annexa
tion club endorsed the candidacy.
Mr. Sopor's appearance in the iiold,
backed by Mr. Damon, came later.
So the irrepressible conflict for
billets goes on among tho ''trooh-
loil." As annexation would abolish
the consulate in question, tho above
paragraph would indicate that there
are more than royal claimants like
"patience on a monument smiling at
grief." But who is "Sam Montsor
rat" anyhow? .
Both the Advertiser aud Star
have represented tho United Press
of America as an unprincipled pur
veyor of false intelligence. Thoy
havo not seen fit to except tho 11 D
uolulu correspondence of that inHl.i
tutiou, which is furnished by Herv.
S. E. Bishop, aud that gontlem.an
has not attempted to defend t he
conceru thus employing him against
the stigma. The venerable editor
of the Friend ought to feel proud
at being employed by "a fakir," as
the Advertiser calls the association
to whom he supplies "news" froau
Honolulu. The Bulletin alwa.Nr.
considers itjviokou of respoctabili ty
to be callod'names by the morniiag
padded libeller. By the way, it is
said tho Holomua is chagrined that
it got into a libel suit for attacking
the wrong man as correspondent of
the Chronicle. It is not tho drug
gist, so 'tis said, but tho same cleri
cal editor who puts up the fa cts
(we shall not copy the Advertisers
slur) for the United Press.
WILL THE P. G. BE IN IX f
"Hal Ha!" This exclamation re
presents the Star's risibles excited
over the idea of tho United States
dictating a vote of the Hawaiian
people on tho question of annexa
tion, m wmuu the umteu states una
been conceded a direct interest, it
should be remembered, by the Pro
visional Government of the Hawai
ian Islands if you please. "Ho!
ho! " This represents tho retort
cachinatioual of readers of the Star
when in the uoxt column they are
informed that Mr. Blount ollieially
tated to tho Provisional Govern
ment ' that tho United States would
uphold the policy of refusing Ha
waiian sullrago to tho Japanese."
That is to say that the Uuitod States
dares not utilize the Hawaiian suf
frage to ascertain if "Barkis is will
in', " while the Uuited.States at the
same time dictates by whom tho
Hawaiian suffrage may or may not
be exorcibed in matters exclusively
Hawaiian! In the iullated rhetoric
of the Star tho appropriate com
ment on such tangled purposes is
as follows, "The more supposition
involved becomes an amazing de
fiance of the idea that man is a ra
tional being," Thoro is no particu
lar necessity, however, for any dicta
tion or "force bill" business about
it. The United States will doubt
less in tho most suave language
of diplomacy suggest that tho Provi
sional Government take the means in
question to ascertain if it is duly
authorized by the people of the.o
islands to transfer their title. Should
the Provisional Government bo silly
enough not to take tho gentle hint,
there would then be something heard
drop which would bo tho last sound
ever to outer tho oars of tho P. G.
us a P. G. or any other kind of a G.
Indeed, thoinsolont tonoof the P. G.
presH hero toward tho United States,
on tho strength of tho more rumor
that a plebiscite was to be recom
mended, may have caused tho die to
be cast already. There is not a total
ubaonco of information to hand that
the recommendation in question is
even now contemplated in Washing
ton to be made to a sot of ruler
whoso claims to popular authority
have boon ascertained as souiowhut
more valid than thoio of tho persous
who have prusuuiud to cede tho
country. Thoro is "mi nut of war
upon n friendly govornmont" pro
jjosti'rous orinio rigiiiust civilization
as audi an act is roganlod by tho
Star to bo rovokod and not to bo
committed. Thoro is tho ditToronco,
TO K1LACKA ON WUEBLS
tam or the Pioneer Trip
to the Volcano in Car
riages from Hilo,
Genual Items of News from the
'Tho party of twenty-two persons
mentioned in a previous issue of this
paper started from Hilo on Sept.
llllh at 2 p. in., for Mountain View
'(Half-way house), to remain over
night. As that house was not suili
cksutly huge to accommodate all,
wo wore distributed at tho houses
lvear by-Mr. 'Mason's, Mr. Lo
rJlondo's Mr. Baldwin's and Capt.
RStaples'. Next morning at (i o'clock
tho journey was resumed, Mr. J. K.
Wllwr.ii mill liw Pnni'nrft ivnimn lmiil.
1 iug. There were seven conveyances
in all and two ladies on horseback.
We traveled along nicely, over tins
splendid road and through woods so
tropical uutil wo came to tho old
Volcano trail, which a carriage
wheel had never invaded, when we
had to travel slower in some places,
for a distance of six miles, but the
last mile aud a half we could travel
lively. We arrieil at tho Volcano
House at I0:.'i0 a. m., to tho great
surprise of the manager of the hotel.
Some persons thought, it impossible
to got over tho six miles. But Wil-
j son said it could bo done and we
i believed him and got through, lu
future horseback riding is dispensed
with. All passengers will go through
in future on wheels.
Well, when wo arrived at tho Vol
cano House all together we gave
three cheers. We were the Pioneers.
We made quite a display as wo came
up to the Volcano House Wilson
with his Concord wagon with four
horses, and several brakes, one bug
gy and tho buckboard containing
the scientific corps, and two ladies,
at the head of all, the advance guard
on horseback, Mrs. Wilson and Mrs.
Hardy. Wo formed a circle and
our photographer, Mr. J. P. Silva,
photographed u-j sitting in our con
veyances, afterwards in a group ou
the ground. After which wo re
paired to the Hotel where the man
ager assigned us rooms. Short h
alttirwiitds wo woio provided with a
lunch which wo all appreciated.
In the afternoon some strolled to
Kilauea lki, others took sulphur
baths so delightful and refreshing,
and so beneficial for rheumatism,
neuralgia aud impurities of tho
blood. These baths should be bet
ter patronized as they are truly ben
eficial, aud are not appreciated as
they should bo.
At 4 o'clock a small company went
down into the crater aud enjoyed a
rare tieat, as the crater was very ac
tive. Thoro were many lire foun
tains, and waves of lava dashing
over the bank in seoinl places. Got
back at 7 o'clock, when wo sat down
with tho rest of our company and
had a bountiful repast aud some
good jokes. In tho evening thoro
were musical selections by Mrs.
Sovorauee, Mrs. H. C Austin, Mrs.
liicbards and others. Thoro was
also danciug. Soino of tho goutlo
mcu patronized tho billiard room.
Next morning wo wero all on hand
at breakfast composed of a nice
variety of food and some toasts wore
drank in honor of tho gettor-up of
this excursion, Mr. .1. K. Wilson.
Wo started at 8 a. in., gave three
choors for Mr. Lee, tho manager of
this beautiful Volcano House, of
which wo all fool proud. Wo stop
ped at Mr. Wilson's Mountain View
House to lunch aud rest horses, aud
arrived at Hilo ,'i p. m.
Before leaving the Volcano House
wo took up one page in tho register
with our names, and headed it,
"Wilson's Carriage Party." Photo
graphs will ho put on tho opposite
page to our names, of the hotel aud
carriage parly, picluies just taken.
Wo hail a baby with us three mouths
old, tho daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
E. E. Kichnrds. It was named
lluth and its health and that of its
parents was drank in glasses of
champagne b) tho parents and man
ager of tho hotel. This jolly trip
will long he remembered, and wo
think our names should bo handed
down to posterity.
The parly as "named in previous
letter consisted as follows: George
Deacon, J. I'. Silva, J. Stiipplcbeou,
Mrs. W. Hauly, .1. A. Martin, Mr. C.
E. Kii'hardson, Mr. C. C. Kenned',
Mr. aud Mrs. Kiohards, Sheriff Wil
liams, wifu and friend, Mr. and Mrs.
iJ. C. Austin, Mr. and Mrs. Sever
ance, Mr. and Mrs. J. If. Wilson.
Another party started for the S'ol
cano iu wagonotto and four horsus
on tho 27th. Hiloiles will go up to
Mountain View House in the after
noon, stay over night, next morning
leave for Volcano IJouse, getting
there about 10:.' St J, visit crater at
night, and next morning leave for
Hilo, stopping at Mountain View to
get lunch anil rest horses, aud getr
ting to Hilo at !i p. in. 2'.th, making
tho tiip easy for man .and boast.
Thuro should bo no hastu iu getting
through the woods, as the trip is so
delightful through il many miles.
The uulluished pari of tho road is
more easy to travel oer than tho
toad from Hilo to Paukaa. This
miihl bo the favoiito route iu time
vu think, ou uccouul of ease ami

THOSE BARE COPPER WIRES.
A Satisfactory Settlement of the
At the consultation of the Board
of Fire Underwriters noted iu this
paper exclusively tho other day, ou
tho question of tho bare copper con
ductors being erected by the Hawai
ian Electric Company, thoro was
submitted correspondence between
Mr. Warriner, electrician of tho
company, aud insurance author
ities on tho Coast. lu a
letter from the Secretary of tho Pa
cific Coast Insurance Union, it is
stated that bare copper wires for
three-feeders are not now disallow
ed over thoro. This, however, does
not agree with the requirement of
tho latest edition of tho Union's
rules received by tho local under
writers. Tho latter seoni to be satis
fied, however, that thoro is not. much
danger to be apprehended from the
copper wires that havo been strung
from the now central station
through Alakea street. They know
that the work has been particu
larly well doue, the wires being se
curely fastened to insulators on
polos that carry them above the
tolophono conductors. However, to
make assurance doubly sure, Mr. C.
O. Borger, secretary of tho Board of
Uudorwriters, will forward, b- the
S. S. China's mail, all tho corres
pondence in tho case to the Pacific
Coast Union with a request for de
finite instructions. It should be
mentioned that a distinction is made
between the different kinds of con
ductors, thoso for incandescent
lighting, for which tho bare wires iu
question aro intended, being of a
much lower voltage tjian those for
arc lighting aud mechanical power.
No Tenders for Pontoons BecauBo of
An advertisement without staling
a time limit has been published for
two days, asking for tenders at
tho office of T. H. Davies &i Co. for
two pontoons. A question akod at
tho office of that firm this afternoon
elicited tho answer that no tenders
had been received, the probable rea
son being that Captain Metcalfe, the
representative of the London Sal
' vago Association, had not yet fur
nished specifications for the articles.
Thoy will bo simple concerns to
figure ou once their material and
dimensions aro specified.
Captain Metcalfe is not, as a cur
rent impression would have it, hero
as a speculator to take a contract to
float, the Miowera, but as a func
tionary fully authorized to under
take the work by the best means
known and available to him.
Tho mechanics and laborers who
worked on the unsuccessful coutraot
to float the vessel aro still banging
around tho Post Oilico, waitiug for
some settlement of their claims
which it is still hoped may be ac
complished. COURT CHRONICLE.

of complaint of E. A. Jones, assig

Billiards were among the boss at

being at tho uow Arlington billiard
parlom' opening. Although tho
electric light men wero a little late

The condition of national
affairs in thu United States is
a greater cause for alarm
among the people there than
is the unsettled condition of
affairs here. What with silver
and anti-silver, repealers and
supporters and the pro's and
con's on the Geary law the
people of the United States
find their pulses beating in the
halls of Congress at a rate
similar to that experienced in
the ante bellum days. The
Hawaiian question is insigni
ficant compared with the im
portance of settling forever
the differences among the
silver and anti-silver men.
Selfishness it may be called,
but in this day and generation
people are prone to look out
for their own interests first,
their neighbors' afterward
take a body of men like the
Congress of United States
with no definite plan of settle
ment, action is necessarily
slow. If, as is stated in a dis
patch to one of the papers,
congress was to adjourn on
the 26th of October the possi
bilities of reaching the Ha
waiian issue before the Decem
ber session is reduced to a
shadow. Mr. Willis may throw
some light on the subject when
he arrives provided he is not
too blunt. As it stands we
must await patiently the ar
rival of the Australia to see
what the law makers of the
United States have done. In
the meantime take your pencil
and paper and calculate the
cost of buiiding 500 yards of
fence where you use posts
every six or eight feet, and
take from the total the cost of
building the same length by
the use of our patent stays and
washers. The result will prove
to you the economy in adopt
ing new methods of fence
You have another source of
profit to occupy your attention
during the interval until the
arrival of the steamer. An idle
brain is the devil's workshop;
you must have something to
keep your thought factory
going on legitimate lines, get
a color card of Hendry's Ready
Mixed Paints and select the
color you want to use on your
house. Ten gallons of paint
and two or three brushes will
make your home look surprised
We have some beautiful
banquet lamps and if you want
to give your parlor or library a
modern look there is no easier
or better way of accomplishing
it than by selecting an article
of this kind.
You remember the pretty
tumbler you were looking at
in our store? the one with the
engraved bands near the top.
You will remember, also, that
when you came back for them
we had sold all we had in stock.
Last week we received several
hundred dozen of this pattern
together with some very hand
some hock and champagne
glasses. If you want any, now
is a good time to get them.
Our Hendry Double Furrow
plow is making a big hit on
plantations because it is the
only plow of the kind that
leaves the furrow clean and
ready for irrigating or plant
ing. Wherever the Hendry
Breaker is you will soon find a
Hendry Double Furrow plow.
