"Drowning moii cntoh at straws."
Rondora of tlio Star havo au illvm-"
Irnliou of tho truth of this old saw.
Au itow of nowa iu Tuesday's Star
ia that tho Hawaiian army consists
of 04 niuu, throo of whom nro gou
erals. This diaagroos with Miuistor
Thurston's rocont statomont that a
thousand and elovou warriors -wasn't
it?could bo callod into ac
tion by tho P. G. at au hour's notice.
But who aro tho throo "jrenornls" at
whom our coutomporary is poking
Uoforring to tho reception of Min
iator Willis, tho Advertiser remarks,
"Tho crumbs of comfort obtained
by the oxtroine opponents of -ho
good government existing must bo
'exceeding small.' " And how much
comfort do tho annexationists got
out of tho words of either President
Cleveland or Miuistor Willis? It is
to bo inferred, however, from tho
Advertiser's remark that tho moder
ate opponents of tho military usurp
ation do -got some comfort above
"exceeding small' from tho American
Miuistor Willis's invoking of "that
spirit of peaco, friendship and hos
pitality which has over been tho
shield and sword of this country,"
was, whether calculated or- not,
rather a sarcastic commentary on
tho half-doou gilt-hafted swords by
which President Dole was attended,
and tho displaj- of guns and bay
onets, sandbags and cannon outside,
which represented tho authority by
which tho Provisional Government
stood there to receive the represent
ative of the United States with his
extended right hand of good will to
the "people" of the Hawaiian Isl
ands. STAR FISHING FOR COMFORT.
Our annexationist contemporaries
aro as anxiously impatient as over,
iu spite of the general expectation
that President Cleveland's policy to
wards these islands is about to bo
divulged. They are dissecting tho
communications of tho President
and his representative hero to obtain
particles of encouragement for their
hope of the continuance of revolu
tionary rule with tho ostensible
object of the revolution blasted.
The Star repeats in black type this
passage from tho letter of credence
presented by Minister Willis from
President Glevelaud, "Ho will con
stantly endeavor to advance tho in
terests aud prosperity of both gov
ernments aud so render himself ac
ceptable to Your Excellency." The
context of the letter of crodouce, as
well as the text of tho Minister's ad
dress, forbids the restricted meaning
that the Star puts on tho word ''gov
ernments." "Governments" clearly
moans hero the "governed" of both
countries, in the souse of tho "state"
or "common wealth" or "nation."
There is far loss ambiguity, on the
other hand, in the next paragraph
of the President's letter to that from
which the Star quotes, whoroin Pre
sident Cleveland asks President Dole
to give full credence "to the assur
ances which 1 have charged him to
convey to 3'ou of the best wishes of
this Government for the i'iiosi'i:m n
of tue Hawaiian Islands." There is
no ambiguity at all in tho manner
in which the Minister proceeds to
carry out the President's instruction
iu that regard. There is a conspicu
ous blank in his words which forms
a wet blanket to the construction
put upon the letter by tho Star,
whore Miuistor Willis in concluding
his address to President Dolo says:
Invoking that spirit of peace,
friendship and hospitality which has
ever been the shield aud sword of
this country, I now, upon behalf of
tho United States of America, ten
der to youu rEoi-LU tho right hand of
good will, which 1 trust may bo as
lasting as I know it to bo siucerc,
expressing tho hope that every year
will promote aud perpetuate that
good will, to the honor, happinopp
and prosperity of both govern monts.
"Both governments" is tho sainu
phrase hero as it is iu tho letter of
credence, aud it would be tho height
of absurdity to construe it here as
moaning tho more party administra
tions of President Clovoland and
President Dole. Miuistor Willis
here spoaltB as tho representative of
his country tho Envoy Extraordi
nary and Minister Plenipotentiary"
not of President Cleveland but
"of tho United States of America."
Ho is instructed by President Clovo
land, as tho representative head of
the United Slates, in what to say,
and, "upon bohalf of tho United
States of Amorica," ho toudors to
tho"ran'LE" of tho Hawaiian Islands
"tho right hand of good will." Wo
do not wish to bo understood as
tryiug to uuticipato tho dovolop
inont of Prosidoiit Cleveland's
polioy by tho construing of tho in
toroliango of diplomatic huigtingo
botweon tho United States Miuistor
and tho Provisional Govornmout
President on Tuesday. Tho object
of tho citations made is simply to
show that if the question of the
policy of tho United States toward
Hawaii depends upon tho constru
ing of tho now Minister's prelimi
nary diplomatic communications,
thou t ho opponents of tho Provi
sional Govern uiont and the friends
of Hawaiian iudopuudonco havo by
Jar a lartror share of encouragement
in tho language employed than havo
tho supporters of tho prosout rule
or min regime.

Editou Bulktjn: -
In your paper of tho (ith iust. you
report that at tlio mooting hold at
tho LWolania Street Armory on tho
.'trd iusl., ouo of tho speakers "urged
tlio nudionoo to sign a petition to
their government asking that two
Japanese man-of-war should bo sta
tioned hero perinnuoully for tho pur
pose of protecting Japanese inter
ests.'' 1 regret that this should have been
added to tho already numoious at
tempts that have been made to draw
tho Japanese hero into the Hawaiian
political trouble. Tho meeting was
hold on tho Japanese Emperor's
birthday, and solely iu honor of that
occasion; and into no part of it did
there creep any mention of, or refer
ence to, Hawaiian pol tics; nor was
tho rouiark you reported ovon hint

strength of tho interpretation of the

next day through inadvertence, but
tho reporter recalled it on Monday

llecovory of a Sack of Com With a
Drunkon Japanese Darao.
About 8:30 o'clock yesterday even
ing Polico Officer Moanaliha, sta-
uoucu ai iuauunuoa aim uoroiama
streets, saw a Japanese woman evi
dently under the iulluonco of liquor
stagger along Borotania street. Ho
walcned hor until, directly in front
of the Kaiimakapili church entrance,
she fell down iu the middle of tho
street. The olllcer walked over and
ondeavoiod to persuade her to got up
aud go on the sidewalk. Sho mut
tered something iu tho Japanese
tongue, unintelligible to tho unthu
olllcor. Noting that persuasion was
out of tho tiuostion tho olhYor trrab
bod tho woman around the waist,
and lifted hor off tho ground. As
tho olllcor stood tho woman on hor
foot, sho put hor hand iu hor pocket
and drew out a bag of money, which
sho throw from her. The bag burst
ing coins were scattered in all direc
tions. With tlio assistance ot sev
eral Chinamen who had boon attract
ed by tlio strange sight, tho money
was gathered together, and on be
iug counted was found to amount to
j'J'J, all in silver. The womnn and
money woro taken to tho Polico
Station, and a charge of drunken
ness was recorded against hor. Sho
had not boon there ton minutes
when two mnlo Japs culled aud ask
ed how much 11101103' ",3 woman had
in hor possession. When told, one
of tho men, presumably hor hus
band, said that sho loft the house
with .?150, of which $100 was iu sil
ver and tho rest in gold. Tho woman
had not yet been searched, and when
sho was submitted to that perform
ance 50 in gold was found iu her
dress pocket. Only SI out of the
total amount was unaccounted for,
excepting by tho condition sho was
in. It was a lucky thing that sho
had boon soon iu tnuo by tho officer,
as otherwise the whole pile might
soon have boon sought in vain.
ORANGES IN GALORE.
Piedatory Kids Bob Chinese Buyers
of tho Fruit.
Tho stoamor W. G. Hall which
arrived yesterday afternoon from
Hawaii aud Maui, brought down
thousands of oranges from Kona.
This moruiug, at the I. I. S. N. Co.'s
wharf, theso oranges were landed
from tho steamer, ami consequently
a largo crowd of people was present
to sample the luscious-looking fruit.
Chinese fruit-dealors turned out to
buy thorn by tho wholesale aud no
sooner had a box boon purchased by
aChiuamau and opened than a dozen
hands would fly simultaneously into
the box and snatch tho fruit away,
and boforo John could check tho
grabbers, some dozen of oranges had
gone out of his keeping aud were
being inunchod by the crowd before
his very face. Of course whon John
inado a verbal protest ho was laugh
ed at, and seemed only to bring
about au increased appetite for
oranges on the part of tho grabbers.
One native boy who was successful
previously iu stealing oranges and
always managed to got out of John's
v."3', was struck on the back by a
Chinaman with a stick unt very hard,
but just hard enough to mako him
less lively in grabbing which gave
such a wholesome example to I ho
rest of the "kids" that John's pro
perty enjoyed immunity from furt hor
molestation. JLuo fruit sold this
morning at a dollar a hundred.

It makes no difference
whether yon use kerosene
or electricity for lighting your
dwellings, you cannot have
loo 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 pnrse.
Abraham Lincoln once said
" you can fool some people all
the time, you 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 of Fence 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 they 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 f, 10860
for posts and staples only with
out counting freight and ex
pense of digging holes. By
the new method, the materials
for a Lo.cked Fence costs you
for the same distance 88.38.
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 " Hendry
Douui.ii Furrow 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 w"re 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
"1 have e,ver seen for the pur
"pose. You seem to have com
'bined all necessary points of
"excellence in a perfect plow
"in this one Implement."
