THE MAIN QUESTION.
Our anuoxalionist eonlomporavioa
profess to liao mtulo a now dis
covery. That is, tho fact that Com
missioner Blount's mission to Hawaii
was largely to ascertain if tho United
States forces contributed toward tho
overthrow of the monarchy. Those
papers forgot that it was that vory
question, presented at Washington,
by tho Queen's representative, Mr.
Paul Neumann, boforo tho close of
President Harrison's administration,
which provouted tho P. G. annexa
tion troaty from being considered by
tho Souato. As to any other inform
ation required for an intelligent con
sideration of tho treat-, thero was
no need of a special mission to Ha
waii. Thrum's Annual aivd public
documents at tho Hawaiian Lega
tion, not to mention tho presence of
tho P. G. commissioners in Washing
ton, would havo furnished abundant
of onlichtouuiont on the
merits of tho annexation
scheme. Tho United States had
solemn treaties of friendship and
commerce with tho constitutional
monarchy of Hawaii. Had tho
United Stales by its representatives
violated those treaties by helping to
overthrow that form of government
in Hawaii? That was tho main ques
tion, that vva.s tho only sticking
point, which must be decided boforo
questions wholly American in the
matter could bo considered. There
fore Special Commissioner Blount
was sent out. That such was no
socrot at tho time is proved by the
vigor aud the vehomouco with which
tho annexationist press sot about
to deny that tho American forces
had tho least little bit to do with
tho revolution. It was unfortunate
for their caso that tho Special Com
missioner found the American ling
and American forces protecting a
govorumont that had been declared
to be tho spontaneous creation of
tho people of Hawaii. The charge
that tho Commissioner has mado a
one-sided report, supported mainly
by tho testimony of royalists, is not
borne out even by tho meagro ox
tracts of that roport which havo as
yet been published. As slated be
fore, tho testimony mainly relied
upon, for tho conclusions found in
Secretary Grosham's letter to tho
President, is furnished in official
correspondence between Minister
Stevens aud tho leadors of tho revo
lution, together with evidence given
by a inombcr of tho Provisional Gov
ernment to Commissioner Blount.
Tho facts thus established niako tho
question now raised against tho Pre
sident's policy of restoration that
it is unlawful for tho Executive to
mako war of its own motion on a
friendly government apply first of
all to tho acts of war committed
against tho constitutional govern
ment of Hawaii by tho Executivo
power of tho United States under
President Harrison's administration.
ollicials and oinployeos, as to thoir
loyalty and their viows regarding
the establishing of this Government,
President Dole said thovo was Ho
dissension in tho Executive, but
they wanted tho advice of tho Ad
Air. Emmeluth asked if each head
of a Department would conduct the
investigation in his own depart
ment. President Dole thought it was not
iutonded that each head was to bo
deprived of liberty in tho matter.
.Mr. Wilder asked if tho Executive
would take tho advieo of tho Advi
President Dole answered affirma
Mr. Hatch movod u resolution:
"That it is tho opinion of this Coun
cil that tho Executivo should at ouco
proceed to an investigation into tho
loyalty of all Govorumont employ
ees and tho support they aro pre
pared to give to this Gorornmout.''
The mover spoko at lougth in fav
or of tho resolution. It was not a
more matter of civil service reform,
but tho existence of tho Govorumont
was atstako. Thoy had been in ex
istence' eleven mouths, during which
time thero sat a woman across tho
street who claimed to bo tho rightful
sovereign ol tins country, xnoir
enemies spoko of forco being used
against them tho forces of tho
United States. It was not a judi
cial investigation that was wanted,
but the exorcise of common sonso.
While tho Government was in tho
position of being liablo to havo to
mako a stand in that, building or
elsewhere for existence, it was not
wiso to have men in public offices
whom they could not trust. They
should not tie themselves up as the
Supremo Court scorned to have
done, to tho finding of ovidenco of
seditious conduct against an em
ployee. Ho thought it was not
just to themselves to havo a man in
tho employ of tho Government, the
head of whoso family was known to
bo an opponent of tho Government
aud a supporter of its enemies.
Mr. Tounoy seconded the resolu
tion with pleasure.
Mr. Emmeluth thought tho reso
lution did not go far enough. Four
lift lis of tho Govorumont officials in
that building should be swept out.
Ho moved an amendment that, in
determination of tho loyalty of Go
ernment employees, active forvico in
support of tho" Govorumont ami its
past record should bo required.
Messrs. Hatch aud Tonney accopt-od-tho
Mr. Wilder would not support the
resolution if ho thought it would
caus-o a split in tho Executive. But
ho thought no enemy of tne laoveru-
ment ought to be in its employ.

Also, that tho Executivo Council

Mr. "Watorhouso avowed his senti
ments as having all along been thoso
of tho resolution.
Mr. Young thought tho timo had
come for turning their onomies out
of tho public buildings. "What was
to hinder ouo of the royalists em
ployed in that building from bring
ing missiles into it to wreck tho
building. Thero -was a prospect of
a long wait before them aud they
Minister Smith folt safe in saying
that, whatever difference existed be
tween membors of the Executive, all
wore loyal to the Provisional Gov
ernment. As Mr. Hatch had said,
this was not a race question. Tho
speaker had alwtiys advocated pre
ference to Hawaiiaus who woro
citinlilicd in tho allotment of ollices.
Ho folt tho same to-day. Put ho !
endorsed the opinion that, under
tho circumstances, they could uot
allow tho retcntiou of men iif ollico
who wero not. loyal to tho Govern
ment. Minister Damon said it was not
often that a man of his limited years
and experience in public life was
called on to take a stop under iiro
from his friends. It had been a long
light aud a conslaut one thoy had
made togother since tho dato of
their Proclamation or bill of rights,
to mako tins tlio established gov
ernment of tho country and bo so
until wo secured pormauent govern
ment under the Stars and Stripes.
Ho quoted from tho Proclamation
and from tho minutes of early ses
sions of tho Councils, showing that
tho employees of tho Government
found in ollico woro to bo retained,
with the exception of certain olli
cials named in tho Proclamation.
This policy was formally adopted
at several meotings, it boiug em
phasized that no man was to bo
dismissed for his private political
opinions. On Jan. 20th a petition
was presented from ouo Kloramo
asking to bo appointed Jailor or any
other good billot open to him. lie
took the stand firmly to-day that to
dismiss any man against whom no
chargo of wrongdoing or crooked
ness could bo mado savored to him
of fear, especially when thoy had
only to wait two weeks for word
Irom Washington. it not only
savored of fear but thoro was a
spirit of revongo running through
some of tho speeches heard that
day. Was that a proper spirit to bo
shown in that chamber? Thoro was
opposition oven now within tho ranks
of their own supporters. How was
tho Executive to know, when a re
quest came to thorn for a position,
whether it was backed by tho Annex
ation Club or its rival the American
League? Thoro was no peaco for
this country until it was under a
strong power, liussiu governed her
people and kept them tlown 13' the
power of soldiors, and tho answer
was dynamite, Did this Government
want to havo tho same condition
horo? It was not correct lo say that
tho Queen claimed rival powers with
them. Sho was to-day under tho
control and protection "of this Gov
ernment. Mr. Damon concluded
with remarks in sympathy with tho
fears of Jlawuiians that thoy wore
to bo deprived of tho poor man's
sacred protection of tho voting fran
chise. The remainder of tlio debate is
held over for lack of time.

People arc gradually finding
out that painting houses means
something besides putting on
a combination oF colors and
brightening the appearance of
dwelling. There is paint
and paint, some good and
others decidedly bad, and this
saying does not apply only to
ready mixed paints. How of
ten you find on houses, paint
ed only a short time, streaks
of white showing through the
color. It's the quality of the
paint used in mixing with the
white. Six months after a
house is painted with these in
terior "contract colors tin?
house is as apt to look like a
harlequin's jacket as anything
else. In using mixed paints,
Hendry's Ready Mixed Paints
such embarrassment is avoid
ed because in the first place
the colors are selected from
the best made and are mixed
by men whose work is confin
ed strictly to that work. Once
Hendry's Ready Mixed Paint
is used on a building the colors
remain clear and glossy; as
the paint goes on so it remains
and weather will no make
changes in its appearance as
it does in other kinds of paint.
Our color cards show twenty
five different shades and colors.
We will be pleased to send it
to any one for the asking, and
you can order from it as safely
as if you come to the store.
An article we don't talk
about very much, but which is
quite an item in our business,
is rope, good manila rope man
ufactured by Tubbs & Co., the
famous cordage makers. We
keep all sizes from a fish line
to a hawser the thickness of
your arm anybody's arm. As
we are the agents for the man
ufacturer we are enabled to
sell this rope at lower prices
than other cordage dealers and
give better satisfaction. Un
like some makes of rope the
Tubb's is well laid in. oil so
that contact with water, in
stead of making it harsh and
brittle increases its pliability.
Any sailor man who has used
Hongkong rope knows that
once it becomes wet it is use
less while the same cause pro
duces . an entirely different ef
fect on the Tubb's rope. Our's
is also adapted to the uses to
which rope is put on planta
tions. The late rains have made
the grass grow where . the
ground has been bare for
months. Growing grass makes
a demand for Lawn Mowers,
at least with us. A half-dozen
have gone to our customers dur
ing the past week, and we are
prepared to sell a great many
more. We handle the "Penn
sylvania" which tlve people
who cut grass say, is superior
to any other. Another article
much used by the landscape
gardener is shears for trimming
the edges of grass, ordinary
sheep shears is the best for the
purpose, and our's have straps
to them so the operator can
get a good grip on the imple
ment. We have also the con
ventional hedge shears that
are used in evening up the
sides and tops of hedges.
These three tools are actual
necessities to people who wish
to keep their lawns looking
While mentioning articles
for the lawn and garden it will
be well to tell you that our
stock of rubber hose is about
as large as any in town, ana
the quality cannot be improv
ed upon. During the time
the irrigation notice was in the
paper people had no use for
garden hose, but now that the
embargo is removed the de
mand is growing. As a fit
accompaniment the hose reel
should go with the hose.
These reels, however, are for
economical people, people who
do not believe in buying new
hose every few months. It's
the draeffrintr the hose over
sand walks that wears it
a hose reel obviates that
long life is granted to it.
When you get a hose and a
reel buy a California Improved
Sprinkler. We sell them.

No award has ever been uiiulo so gratifying
to St. Louis people and so justly merited
as tho ono given to-day by the Columbian
jury of the world's Fair, consisting of con-
nolhsuur.s and oncmisis 01 mo nigncscraiiK,
to tho Anhouscr-Ilusch Drawing Associa
tion. Uy methods of unrivalled business
enterprise, and by iT-ing tho hcit material
produced in America and Europe, exclud
ing corn and other adulterants or surro
gates, the dill'erent kinds of tho Anheusor
llusuh beer havo become tho favorites with
tho American peorlo, and have now con
quered tho highest award in every particu
lar, which had to bo considered by tho
Columbian jury. The high character of
tho award given to-day by tho jurors will
bo better understood when it is known that
tho dill'i'iTiit beers exhibitod by tho An
heuscr-Jiusch Brewing Association had to
compete with hundreds of tho most excel
lent displays of other brewers. Tho fact
that no atber I'oncorn has rocolved so
many points for the various essential qual
ities of good beer confirms anew tho ilrm's
ruputttlon as tho leader of all American
beers, and Mr. Adolphus Uusch can feel
proud over this icsultbo justly merited.
