But Established for tha Benefit of All.
FRIDAY, DEC. 15, 1893.
By an overwhelming majority tho
pooplo ot Ithodo Island havo voted
in favor of a constitutional amend
ment providing for plurality instead
of majority olections. That is, tho
i-andidato who gets tho highost uuui
bor of votos will bo elected, without
ronuirine that ho should havo a
majority of all tho votes cast.
It speaks well for tho now tariff
bill that of all tho Democratic papors
of Now York, only tho Sun finds
fault with it, thinking it has not
gouo doop ouough. Tho Wilson bill,
as it is called, seems to bo gonorally
accoptod by tho party as affording
tho roliof from high taxation for
which a majority was elected to
Congress. Carnegie and company
may kick, but tho majority will rule.

tisor insinuates, in tho news para
graph givou editorially in yesterday's
Bulletin. Tho information was
obtained orally just as our pages
wore going to press and put in typo
hurriedly from dictation. Neither
timo nor space was loft for comment,
although what would havo boon re
marked, otherwise, was that porhaps
tho Annexation Club would not con
sent to tho United States' paying a
pension to tho Queen, therefore
Cleveland would go right ahead
with his unequivocally declared
policy! Seriously, however, tho im
portance wo attach to U'o nows in
question rests in its showing that a
profound respect for fairplay and
justice is supremo in tho minds of
American stalesmou of whatever
party. Wo do not read any com
promise in President Cleveland's
message, or any waiting for newly
proposed plans to mature for doing
justice to tho Queen and pooplo of
After tho Louisiana oxamplo, that
cost those islands $60,009 a year, it
would probably cause somo rogrot
in tho United States to pou Hawaii
takiug the .pcheme up. Yet with
that example at homo staring it iu
tho face, togothor with tho strong
support givou to tho scheme for
transplanting tho lottery to Dakota,
tho United States Government can
hardly find reason for sustaining a
revolution iu a friendly country on
account of a favorable reception be
ing given to that nation's own pro
duct. Then Mr. Gre3ham, if ho
chooso to notice tho sophomoric
screed at all, may rotort, as ho can
with truth: ""Was there nothing
offensivo to your good pooplo, as
well as grossly hypocritical and in
consistent to tho oyos of tho world,
in tho conduct of tho Provisional
Govommont whon it gavo somo of
tho most lucrative offices iu its mili
tary and civil sorvico to loading pro
motors of tho lottery? And, as to
opium, is thoro anything more im
moral in tho attempt to regulate tho
ovil by license, than, under nominal
prohibition at homo, in your Govern
ment's selling tho confiscated opium
for consumption by tho Chiuoso iu
their own country, or, still worse,
lotting it bo stolon by your own offi
cials as has boon dono every time
that tho party to which you (Mr.
Carter) belong has been iu power?"
Mr. Carter might further bo asked if
tho policy of liconsing opium had
not been gonorally demanded by
business men of all parties hero as
proforablo to tho wholesale smug
gling that no Government had ade
quate means for preventing. Moro-
THE aUEEN'S CONSTITUTION.
A gioat deal of capital is sought
to bo made out of the fact that tho
Queen has not thought fit to pub
lish tho constitution that sho pro
posed for the acceptance of her
Cabinet in January last. The Star
invents the story that sho burned it
and gives tho Examiner as authority
for tho statement that tho Queen
told Mr. Damon so. Tho Star is too
anxious to havo the portion of Com
missioner Blount's roport relating
to tho subject published ahead of
As to tho 'revolutionary" mode,
which tho revolutionary followers of
J. L. Stovons allogo that tho Queen
adopted, it is sufiiciont to contrast
tho action of tho constitution fram
ors of 1837 with tho action of con
stitutional monarchy in 1893. Tho
Queen did not effect anything, be
cause sho at onco recognized tho
legal check of her Cabinet who woro
constitutionally in office by tho votes
of tho people. Tho constitution of
1887 was drawn up by a body of
armed aliens, responsible to no one
hero, and forced on tho King and
people by bayonets at an unguarded
moment. Tho revolutionary organs
would do well to bear in mind that
the present Queen was elected and
endorsed by tho representatives of
tho pooplo yoars before tho revolu
tionary party of 1887 sprung thoir
"bayonet constitution" on tho pooplo.
over, what has Mr. Carter to say to
tho votes of two of tho doar Joues
WTilcox Cabinet in favor of tho
opium bill? Thoso votes aro filed in
tho State Department at Washing
ton. When Mr. Carter speaks of "tho
disappoarauco of tho Chinese regis
tration act," as a reason for over
throwing tho Queen, ho again writes
himself down a political trickster or
a donkey. This was anothor mea
sure on which tho peerless Jones
Wilcox Cabinet of his admiration
divided in tho recorded votes of the
Legislature, of which also thoro is
unimpeachable proof on file in tho
Stato Department. Thoro was noth
ing more unpopular than tho regis
tration scheme which, to get over
Iho constitutional inhibition of class
legislation, had to includo people of
all nationalities in its obnoxious re
quirement of virtually wearing tags
aud actually carrying passports as
tho conditions of personal liberty.
It was an idoa borrowed from tho
militar3'-riddon countries of Europo,
aud only tolerated by sensible minds
horo as possibly tho less of two ovils.
At all ovouls, its "disappoarauco''
was by and with ministerial advice
and consent. Mr. Carter's know
ledge of local affairs surely does not
exclude these notorious facts, but
tho other horn of tho dilemma is
that ho wilfully attempts to deceive
tho United States Government.
The foregoing exposures of his dis
honest arguments iu behalf of tho
lost sugar bounty causo aro enough
to stamp his entire brochuro with
the stigma of fraud.

Rawlins Wins a Point in Equity
A unanimous decision of the Su
premo Court, prepared by Justice
Froar, has been filed in tho case of
T. W. Rawlins vs. The Honolulu
Soap Works Co. It is found that
tho object of tho contract with
plaintiff by defendant was to secure
skilful and proper work, not moroly
to gratify unreasonable tasto, sousi
bility or proforeuce. If tho plaintiff
did all things required of him by
tho contract in a skilful and proper
manner, the defendant is bound to bo
satisfied. Tho demurrer is sustained
on the ground that tho allegation
of defendant's broach is insufficient,'
but over-ruled as to tho othor points.
Tho plaintiff Bhould bo allowed to
amend his complaint, and tho caso is
remanded to tho Circuit Court for
such.further proceedings as may bo
proper. C. Brown for plaintiff; A.
S. Hartwoll and F. M. Hatch for do-fondant.

Saturday, Dec. 0, 1893.
The individuality of men is
shown by theirfworks. Byron
by his beautiful, but lascivious,
poems, Macauley by the care
devoted to the preparation of
his history of England, Mes
sonnier by the delicacy of
colors on canvas, Wagner by
his base-horn sonatas, and the
Hawaiian Hardware Co. by
their choice selection of goods
for the house.
If we purchased good things
to day and poor articles to
morrow people would say: "It
is characteristic of the Hawaii
an Hardware Co. to give a
good thing one time and a bad
one another." As it is our
policy to buy only reliable
goods the people here as well
as on the other islands can
safely depend upon getting
just what they order. We
could not send a poor quality
of goods if we were requested
to; we don't keep them in
Last week we unpacked a
goodly number of boxes, many
of them suitable for the holi
days, all of them adapted to
the every day wants of the
people. That these new goods
suited our customers was evi
denced in the fact that many
of the handsomest gifts to the
recently married couples were
purchased from us. Our stock
is a combination from which
one may select articles for use
by people in any walk of life,
from the lady who wants an
exquisitely wrought jewel case
to the manager of the planta
tion who requires the imple
ments a Hendry Breaker for
instance, for tilling the soil.
We have recently added to
our stocK an assortment oi
fancy goods for the holiday
season comprising, silver plat
ed ware, onvx tables, hand
some banquet lamps, ebony
like pedestals for statuettes,
etc., things which you and
everyone else admire when
you see them in your neigh
bor's parlor. Handsome look
ing are they, and stout of
build, but ridiculously low in
price, because they have been
having hard times in the
United States and competition
has forced the manufacturers
to reduce the price ol their
We heard the other day that
a certain mill on Puget Sound
loaded 123 vessels last year
and did not make a dollar.
This should have made lumber
cheap and houses should go
up here like they used to dur
ing the old boom days in Kan
sas. Other material for build
ing is cheap and paints were
never so good and low priced,
as they have been since Hen
dry's Ready Mixed were put
on this market. We keep
nearly everything in the hard
ware line used for building
and our prices are known to
be the lowest.
The locked fence is growing
more popular every day and
nothing pleases us better than
to hear from a man who is
wedded to the old style method
of fence building. With a
small piece of paper and a
lead pencil we will convince the
most skeptical in a very-few
minutes that the locked fence
is not only the strongest but
the most economical in use.
We are inclined to point out
the road to wealth and have
succeeded in directing a good
many people to it by convinc
ing them of the superiority of
some ot our specialties.
The arrival of steamers from
China causes a demand for
bird cages and occasionally
some one comes along with a
desire for a parrot house. We
claim that our stock of cages
is the best in town, and the
cheapest. The parrot cages
are of various sizes, each hav
ing the wire floor so that when
you clean the cage Miss Polly
will have to remain indoors.
There's no reason why some
thing of this sort would not
be good for a Christmas gift.
