For vory obvious roasous tho Star
has rosumod ita caul and raut about
u variety of uvils that it assumes to
have boeu identified with tho inou
archy. It strings out a list "im
morality, bribery, debauchery, opi
um, lottery and despotism" as pro
ducts of tho monarchical system of
government. This is nothing but
hypocritical bombast, as all who
have been long rosidout hore know.
There has been nothing of evil hero
which might not have Nourish
ed more raukly by far under a re
public, vrhilo in many respects Ha
waii has been an example of orderly
government to any other nation
that might be named. In fact, the
social order prevailing here had bo
come proverbial abroad long before
the monarch1 was overthrown.
There has been infinitely more "im
morality" imported hore than over
grew on the tree of the nativo mon
archy, and no foreigner can afford
to contrast his own color with that
of the Hawaiian, in tho lnttor's dis
favor, on that score. Where would
the vestiges of immoral customs
here indigenous bo to-day, if it were
not for the patronage of the culti
vated men and women of outside
civilization who seek them out as
among the chief attractions for
strangers? They would simply be
dead and buried if they had depend
ed all these years on native vice and
There is not indeed a moral of
fense in the whole category quoted
from tho .Star, with regard to which
foreigners can alTord to display their
broad phylacteries of innocence.
Many fortunes of high-toned
white people are, for instance, in
common belief and repute founded
upon the unlawful traffic in
opium. How many natives have
made more than an occasional break
fast out of the same trade? Every
thing, excepting for obvious rea
sons the lottery, above enume
rated are still as thriving as
ever they were under the monarchy.
It is only because tho Louisiana lot
tery is now forbidden the American
mails that the outgo of money from
our highly moral foreign community
does not continue to the former tune
of 60,000 a year. And, even with
regard to the attempted introduc
tion of a semi-national lottery, for
which the Queen was and is being
condemned, the censors of morality
have persistently declined to meet
our challenge for a full discussion of
the whole business. They have nevor
explained how it is that lottery
men theu, who are lottery men in
principle still, have been the pre
sent Government's choice for pro
ferment. Neither have they deign
ed to explain the fact that the
lottery propaganda's headquarters
were in the Bureau of Information,
an organization at tho head of which
was the1 prime revolutionist, now
Minister L. A. Thurston. Give us
an answer or give us a rest.

Scene and Incidents on the Wharf
-A Piper Afloat.
The departure of the P. M. S. S.

the adieux of their friends and
admirers, most of whom had gar
lands of flowers to entwine around
their hats and necks.
Admiral Irwin, U. S. N., who was
present to bid Admiral Skerrott
good-bye, was the center attraction
on the wharf after coming oil' the
steamer. Ho walked to and fro
among the crowd as if utterly obli
vious of the importance with which
such a personage as he is regarded
by Honolulu people generally, and
remarks were hoard as to his un
The vessel swung out from her
moorage shortly after 10 o'clock.
Admiral Skerrott, who was in full
view of the crowd bedeckod with
leis, stripped himself of all thoho
ornaments and throw them into the
sea, whore they were picked up bj
uative boys who were engaged in
diving for dimes. Ho disappeared
from view for a few minutes and was
seen later standing on the bridge.
When tho vessel bogan to movo sea
wards a salvo of thirteen guns from
tho U. S. S. Philadelphia belched
forth, as a parting saluto to her re
tiring commander, and tho dipping
of flags by tho steamer and the men-of-war
in tho harbor wound up tho
interchanges of courtesies between
the departiug aud tho remaining
Tho P. G. band played on tho
wharf for about an hour boforo the
steamer's departure. A through

bagpipes, and who undoubtedly bo

"opposition" muslo, whilo tho on
lookers regarded him with ourloiity.
Hon. Albert S. Willis, tho new
United States Minister, presented
his credentials to .'resident Dole at
the Foreign Ollico this morning.
Before the appointed hour of 11
o'clock, Companies 12 aud F, regular
troops of tho Hawaiian National
Guard, were drawn up as a guard of
honor to tho loft of tho carriage
way going from King-street gate to
tho main entrance of tho Exccutivo
building. Major McLood was in
commaud of the troops over Cap
tains Good aud Ziegler, and tho
companies were subdivided for bat
President Dole and colleagues,
with tho field ollicers of the mili
tary, members of tho Judiciary, and
a few others watched for the com
ing of tho distinguished visitor from
the upper balcony of the building.
As a carriage drawn by two spirited
white horses whirled iuto view on
Palaco Square, tho President and
uartv wit hdrow to the gold room
and stationed themsolves to receive
tho Minister. President Dole stood
at the head of the room facing tho
entrance from tho hall. On his right
Chief Justice Jtuld and Associate
Justices Bickorton and Frear, of
the Supreme Court; Judges Whit
ing and Cooper of the Circuit Court;
Marshal E. G. Hitchcock, Mr.
Geo. C. Potter, secretary of tho
Foreign Ollico; Captain Camara,
commissarj- ollicor (in uniform), Mr.
W. K. Castle, Hov. S. E. Bishop and
Mr. Shopard of New York, tho last
named a guest of tho Chief Justice.
Representatives of tho Bulletin and
Star, with a few unofficial specta
tors, occupied odd corners. On the
left of tho President were Mr. F. M.
Hatch, Vice-President, and Ministers
J. A. Kins' (Interior), S. M. Damon
(Fiuauce) aud VV. O. Smith (.Attorney-General);
Col. J. H. Soper, com
mander of tho forces; Lieut. Col.
Fisher, Captains Rodgers, Hall and
Gartoubcrg -all these officers being
in full dress uniform with swords.
James Carty was driving tho team
that drew the Minister's carriage,
and ho hold tho horses well in hand
when they began dancing to the
music. As tho carriage entered tho
gate tho P. G. band at the head ol
the line olavod "Tho Star Spuuglcd
Banner." At tho same time the
guard presented arms. Tho carriage
swung round in a graceful curve to
the steps, aud Mr. Ellis Mills, Cou-sul-Goucral,
alighted, followed by
Mr. Willis. Tho United Stales
diplomatic and consular representa
tives were conducted up the grand
stairway and into the gold room.
There they advanced to tho middle
of tho room and bowed to the Presi
dent. Mr. Potter stepping forward
introduced Mr. Mills, who in turn
introduced Mr. Willis to tho Presi
dent. Tho Minister then delivered
tho address, which appears in full
below. He spoko in a low but clear
tone with great deliberation and
emphasis. He did not use the
manuscript of his prepaied speech.
As ho concluded his address the
Minister handed tho President the
original letters of President Cleve
land, of which ho had previously
'transmitted copies, they being the
letter of recall of Minister Blount
aud tho letter of credence of Minis
President Dole replied in a slight
ly higher key than that of the Min
ister, only glancing once or twice at
the paper he hold in his hand. Tho
full text of the President's reply is
On tho conclusion of his speech
President Dole introduced Minister
Willis to tho functionaries present,
beiriuuiiii; with Chief Justice Judd.
After a few minutes of conversation
with tho L'residont, Ministers and
Chief Justice, Minister Willis with
Consul-General Mills bowed to the
company and retired.
As tho Minister's carriage rolled
away, tho baud again played "Tho
Star Spangled Baunor," the guards
again presented arms, and, when the
carriage had passed out of tho gate,
tho troops marched out in liuo order
to a lively inarch. At the departure
of tho Minister, some of the nota
bles took groat interest in an inspec

it surprising that this historic tie
has been strougl honed, from year to
year, by important mutual recipro
cities and agreements alike honor

will promote aud perpetuate that
good will to tho honor, happiness
and prosperity of both governments.

It makes no difference
whether you use kerosene
or electricity for lighting your
dwellings, you cannot have
too many lamps; electricity
plays out sometimes while
kerosene, like the odor of
onions, is with you all the time.
Our stock of Banquet and
Stand Lamps has never been
equalled as to excellence of
designs, and our Hanging
Lamps are strong and service
able with all the ornamentation
consistent with good taste.
The prices are in harmony
with your purse.
Abraham Lincoln once said
" you can fool some people all
the time, vou can fool all he
people some of the time, but you
can't fool all the people all the
time." A few years ago, be
fore we went into business, a
lot ol Pence wire was im
ported to Honolulu. We may
add that fence wire has been
imported many times since but
this particular wire was of a
quality that would enable the
dealer to sell at a low price
and the buyer would feel, and
did feel, that he had a bargain.
The wire was soon sold and
fences built, but in a few
months the dealer found him
self in a hornet's nest because
the wire was of a poor quality,
and his customers forced him
to take it back and replace it
with better wire. That bit of
experience was a lesson to the
merchant who had been in the
habit of importing cheap things
and getting high prices, but it
in no way applied to us. The
quality of our goods has never
been questioned, and this ap
plies particularly to wire.
When ours was imported we
directed our agent to procure
the best and thev did it. We
have sold a great many tons
of it and have never had a
complaint. In connection with
fence wire we want to give you
a few figures on fence building.
By the old method of placing
your posts 8 feet apart a mile
of fencing costs you $10860
for posts and staples only with
out counting freight and ex
pense of digging holes. By
the new method, the materials
for a Locked Fence costs you
for the same distance SSS.38.
This of course does not include
Like anything else, a farm
ing implement requires testi
monials from people using it
before the public will buy. Our
Hendry Breaker jumped into
prominence and favor because
people who were first to use it
wrote to us what a good thing
it was. The same may be
said of our new " Hknoky
Double Fukuow Plow." The
demand for it is growing be
cause people who are using it
tell their neighbors, and Hon.
W. Y. Horner of Lahaina tells
us in the following what he
thinks of it:
"Replying to your request
"for my opinion of the Hendry
"Double Furrow Plow, I would
"say that I have had one of
"them at work on my planta
tion for a year past and find
"it admirable in every respect.
"In having the mould boards
"of extra height you accom
plished a point which other
"inventors seem to have over
looked. I mean by this that
"in every other plow I have
"ever seen used the mould
"boards wwre so low that the
"dirt would fall back into the
"furrow. The opposite is the
"result in using Hendry's
"Double Furrow Plow; the
"furrow is left perfectly free
"from loose soil and is ready
"for either planting or irrigat
"ing. Another advantage over
"other plows is the lightness of
"draught which you obtain by
"having the strong straight
"beam with the iron rod run
"ning from the clevis to a point
"over the mould board. I believe
"you have in your plow the best
"I have ever seen for the pur
"pose. You seem to have com-
'bined all necessary points of
"excellence in a perfect plow
"in this oiie Implement."
