JU was a surprise to tho mer

after yestorday's uows was recoived."
This is a sample of tho stuff retailed
by tho Advertiser. Tho two or threo

a greatly increased trado. How tho
prospect of tho presout uncertainty's
prolongation for weeks if not

cal nows, but a comploto summary
of tho latest gouoral foroign nows of
intorost. Tho matter of both sorts
was thoroughly oditod, so as to covor
a groat deal of facts in limited space,
in contrast with tho Star's contonts,
which woro wholly tho product of
scissors aud pastopot. Our edition
besides covered all tho local nows,
which tho Star almost entirely neg
lected. You will find our nows of
yostorday thickly bostrowing tho
Star of this evening. Tho Bulletin

Our opponents will Hud they havo
made tho mistake of their lives in
linking thoir cause with tho fortunes
of a political party in the United
State3. Thoir unremitting and un
restrained abuso of President Cleve
land, ex-Miuistor Blount and, now,
Minister "Willis will yield returns to
which they aro heartily wolcomo by
tho friends of Hawaiian independ
ence. In tho Hawaiian question, as
in tho silvor question, President
Cleveland will come out on top, aud
don't you forgot it, friends.
In view of tho attempt being
made hero to represent tho whole
United States peoplo and pross as in
a foruiout of indignation against
President Cleveland's Hawaiian po
licy, tho article in this issue from
tho Now York Nation on ex-Ministor
Stovons's vulgar roply toJMr. Blount
gives sonic food for reflection.
Equally vigorous denunciations of

Mr. C. A. McDowell, a visitor
from England who left hero by tho
Alameda, made the trip to tho vol
cano shortly before his doparturo.
Ho was enthusiastic ovor tho gran
dour of the houso of lire, aud highly
ploased with tho ontortainmont af
forded tourists on board tho steam
ers, at the Halfway houso and tho
Volcano house. Mr. McDowell was,
however, augry with tho treatment
given passengers on tho wagons
from Hilo to tho volcano. Tho
vehicles aro so lumbered up with
packages of freight as to give great
discomfort to tho traveler. Through
out tho jouruoy Mr. McDowell had
to rido with his legs cramped in a
painful posture owing to tho filling
of the space undor and botween tho
seats with boxes. This is an impo
sition upon tourists which means
should be taken to stop, aud the
matter is called to tho attentiou of
tho Volcano Houso Company with
WHAT THE THING IS.
Annexationists in tho United
States and Hawaii havo boon indulg
ing in tho profunditios of inter
national law, to dig thorofrom rea
sons why it is impossible for tho
Executive of tho United States to
forco tho surrondor of tho Provi
sional Government to tho Queen.
Such would bo au act of war on an
other "nation," say they, which is
forbiddon by tho Constitution to
tho Executive without tho consent
of Congress. Tho fact is that tho
Provisional Government may at any
moment bo thrown in tho position
of a choice between making war up
on tho United States and submit
ting to tho authority of tho United
States Executive iu recognizing au
other government as tho logitimato
government of this country. With
out tho cousont of Congress tho
United States Executive may place
tho P. G. and all its mercenary and
voluntcor forces in a situation akin
to that of tho Pittsburg and Chi
cago rioters, or of tho wild Indians
who break away from thoir reserva
tions to molest peaceful settlers.
In spito of tho recognition of
Minister Stoveus, illegally and
unconstitutional' given as it was,
tho Provisional Government has not
since January 17 held au independ
ent position toward tho United
Statos. For over two months it was
undor the protection of the flag aud
forces of tho United States. Its
own shelved treaty of cession of the
islauds to the United Statos is all
tho testimony needed to prove that
it has iu spito of Minister Thurs
ton's denials placod its cause whol
ly in tho arbitrament of tho United
States. In this connection wo quoto
tho following pointed article from
tho Now York Post:
Editoh Bulletin: '
Ever sinco tho Provisional Gov
ornmeut camo into oxistonco wo
havo boon, almost daily, troatod to
long tirades iu tho papers support
ing it about tho prosperous financial
condition, tho jilothora of tho trea
sury, the business-liko maunor iu
which tho finances woro conductod
and tho porfoct ability of tho P. G.
to moot all obligations.
It is therefore a mattor of im
ploasant surprise to business men on
tho other islands to find that novor
has it been so difficult for them to
cash Government vouchors as under
tho prosent regime, nor so difficult
iu mruiuuiv must yupuitt, us uuij-
body seems afraid to accept them in
payment. Tho bills contracted by
tho various public offices aro now
exclusively paid by certifiod vouch
ers instead of in coin, taking tho re
ceipted vouchors as a recoipt for
payment made, as it was formorly
dono. But this is not all. School
toachors, policomon and other sub
ordinate govornmont officials aro
given a salary draft and told to go
to tho private mercantile firms to
havo them cashed, who are thus ox
pectod to act as bankors for tho
govornmont, saving it both intorost
and trouble, without any remunera
tion. Aud when tho trusting busi
ness man, who dislikos to rofuso his
customers tho favor of exchanging
thoso slips of papor for good hard
coin, for fear that ho may offend
them and thereby lose their custom,
meekly plauks out his hoarded gold
and silvor and remits tho govern
ment papor to his agonts in Hono
lulu, congratulating himsolf upon
having got rid of those bothorsomo
vouchors; ho receives a curt note tho
following week, informing him that
tho vouchor has not been honored,
and may not bo cashed for a week
or porhaps a month.
He now resolves to keep thoso
valuable vouchors until tax paying
time, for surely a government office
cannot ropudiato the vouchers of
tho government. Another surprisel
HawaiiBii Hardware Go., L'd
Their prodigious crowing ovor tho
latest news from Washington does
little credit to tho intelligence of
the annexationists. It is only what
was expoctod by everybody who
knows anything about United Statos
affairs, that tho enemies of tho pro
sent administration should havo
brought tho Hawaiian question up
in Congress by resolutions, as they
havo dono, and try to work up a
popular outcry against tho Presi
dent's policy for general political
capital. Congress dropped tho Sto-vons-Thurston
treaty like a hot
potato while Congress was Republi
can, doubtless bocauso President
Harrison had found tho jingo policy
would havo brought his party and
tho nation up against clangorous
snags. Wo havo not tho least foar
that Congress, when tho issues aro
mado fully clear to it, will support
tho Executive in its dotonnined
measures of redress of tho wrong
committed against tho Hawaiian
nation. At tho very least, Congress
will insist on tho Hawaiian People's
being heard regarding the govorn
mont of thoir country.
A largo number of the writers who
aro claiming for the present Ha
waiian Government tho rank, honors
and immunities of an independent
nation, and denouncing Mr. Willis
for saying ho will permit no disorder
at Honolulu, seem to forgot that tho
Hawaiian Government has not mado
this claim for itself. The prosent
government is, by its own showing,
simply a provisional govornmont or
ganized for tho solo purpose of get
ting tho country annexed to tho
United States. It has never claimed
to bo an independent ropublic, or
oligarchy, or anything else known
to international law. A de facto gov
ernment, created for tho solo pur
poso of giving tho country away
to foroignors, has no standing iu
tho family of nations. Wo cannot
make war on it, because wo can
not mako peace with it. Tho theory
that tho little bureau sitting at Ho
nolulu is "a nation" was never heard
until Mr. Cleveland withdrow tho
treaty from tho Senate. It remains
to bo seen whothor wo shall annex
Hawaii or not. Mr. Cleveland might
still decide that this is the best
to bo done. Pending that decision,
wo aro morally responsible for tho
peace and good ordor of tho Islands.
Tho notion that Bhould he over
throw tho present government, or
police tho streots of Honolulu, ho
will bo "making war" on somebody
is a hallucination. Tho present gov
ernment has novor declared its inde
pendence, or sot up in business for
itself. It is simply a polico com
mission, keeping tho peace pending
tho action of tho United States.

It must mako tho Star happy to
lie praised by tho Advertiser. Such
colossal entorpriso as gotting out an

so often iu extras that it doosn't

now, tho breakdown at tho electric

porarily dependent on tho presses
of tho Advorlisor, aud it is not feasi

without bhowing our hand to that

the Bulletin got out tho only com

political crisis are at liberty to
It is almost a day after the
fair to call your attention to
Christmas goods, but like the
ladder of fame there is always
room at the top, so there is
yet time to remind the people
that we have a stock of the
handsomest lamps ever im
ported to this country. A few
years ago the style ran to
wrought iron; this was follow
ed by polished brass and nickel
stands. This year the fashion
changes again to wrought iron
and the designs we show you
are the very latest conceits of
New York Manufacturers. The
same idea is carried out in the
banquet lamps which, with the
handsome silk shades that go
with them, are truly artistic.
We ask your inspection of
these goods feelingr confi
dent you will approve of our
Agreeably with fall in the
price of sugar we have import
ed a number of small, low
priced silver pieces admirably
adapted to the wants of people
who wish to make handsome,
at the same time inexpensive
presents. These goods com
prise, Knife Rests, Salts and
Peppers, small Breakfast Cas
tors, sets of Individual Butters
with Knives, Tilting Pitchers,
Salad Bowls in hammered sil
ver, Nut Cracks, Drinking
Cups, Flasks and improved
Cocktail and Lemonade Mix
ers. These articles make a
beautiful showing and are very
cheap. For holiday gifts noth
ing will be appreciated more
by the recipient.
Another word about lamps:
Last year, about Christmas
time, we received three very
pretty little lamps which may
have been intended for night
lamps or for sewing by, they
were good enough for any
purpose for which lamps are
used and handsome enough
to be used as ornaments. We
kept them twenty minutes.
This year we imported a half
dozen more and unless the
taste of the public has changed
they won't remain with us very
long. The designs are rather
handsomer than those of last
year and the price a shade
lower; the times demand it
and we're up with the times,
often a few days ahead.
To come down to the actual
every day necessities of life
but which are suitable for
Christmas gifts what's the
matter with a filter? A few
weeks ago " Punch" published
a cartoon illustrating a man
and woman debating the sub
ject of hard times at this sea
son, and the husband's inabil
ity to make suitable Christmas
gifts. " It's hard times we're
having, Peggy, and I'll agree
no to make you a Christmas
gift if you'll no make me one."
As the money would all
have to come out of the hus
band's pocket he made a
double saving by the opera
tion. To those men who wish
to follow, not too closely, the
plan sup-p-ested bv Punch's
cartoon we would advise the
purchase of some article like a
set of Haviland China, a Filter
or a Range which would be of
service to all the family. We
have the articles and we feel
certain we can give the public
