HAWAIIAN ANNUAL FOH 1894.
Tlios. G. Thrum's nltnannu nnd
annual for tho ensuing year ooiUnitm
tUo usual features of ypnoral infot
uialion whicli havo mndo it a usuful
work of reference tho past nineteen
years. There aro exhaustive trade
statistics and astronomical and me
teorological tables. Tho special ar
ticles compriso a constitutional his
tory of Hawaii, by Prof. Aloxandor;
"Fifty Years of Hawaiian Commer
cial Dovolopmont," from tho Frioud;
"Features of Hawaiian Climate," by
C. J. Lyons, Government meteorolo
gist; "Chinoso Immigration," by "V.
H. Wright; "Ancient Hawaiian Wa
ter Eights," by Mrs. Nakuina, Com
missioner of Private Ways and Wa
ter Rights; "Oldtimo Hawaiian
Coasting Sorvico," by G. D. Gilmau
of Boston; "Bureau of Agriculturo
and Forestry," editorial; "Diversi
fied Industries," by Jos. Marsdon;
"Descriptive Catalogue of tho Post
ago Stamps of Hawaii (Sandwich
Islands)," illustrated, by Walter M.
Gifi'ard: "Retrospect of the Year."
It is to ba regretted that the
editor and compilor could not avoid
making tho present issue strongly
partisan. His "retrospect" is not
that of a calm and impartial histo
rian. It reads like a summary of
annexation organ editorials, and
presumes to attack President Clove
land with tho rancor of a Repub
lican party hack on American soil.
Tho table "bowing numbers and
nationality of tho Annexation Club's
membership is unaccompanied by a
statement of tho truth that droves
of school childion and ignorant
Portuguese who could not sign their
names, and a motley crowd of tem
porary sojourners including marine
deserters and sailors ou vessels with
out domicile hero, swell tho list.
One perusing the Annual abroad
will instinctively turn from tho An
nexation Club's oxhibit to tho eon
Mis table, to ascortain the propor
t ton of each nationality ou the roll
to the number or such in tho coun
try. Such a reference will show at
a glance the dishonesty of tho ex
hibit. Out of an American popula
tion of VJ23, includiug women aud
children, in 1S90, tho Annexation
Club gets 1-L19 American members
in 1893, although there is shown in
tho samo work an excess of more
than 200 in departures over arrivals
of foreigners excopting Asiatics in
tho interval! Thon tho reader will
waut to see how tho number on tho
annexation list compares with tho
number of voter?. He will find that
there are only t:$7 Americans regis
tered as voters to the l-lii) registered
as pledged to support t he cause of an
nexation! And, even adding all tho
llawaiiau-born foreign voters, 147, to
tho Americans, ho will only find a
total of 7S3, or a littlo over half tho
number of Americans who aro re
corded as working to cede tho sover
eignty of this country. Mr. Thrum's
tallies thus tell adoal of truth which
their author never intended. They
reveal tho broad general fact that
after tho most vigorous and exhaus
tive canvass of tho whole group, and
tho fraudulent roll-stuffing measures
roforred to above tho best tho Au
uoxation Club can show is a mem
bership list of loss than half tho
number of registered voters of tho
Another political fake prepared for
the partisan sheets and reproduced
in the Annual is tho tablo of amount
and nationality of investments in
plantation and other corporations in
the Hawaiian Islands. Tho fact
that a largo proportion of tho cor
porations operating here aro orga
nized in San Francisco, without tho
nominal capital over being paid up
by ouo-half or even loss, is sufficient
to show tho wortlilessness of such
an exhibit as this one that has boon
so ostentatiously paraded to exagge
rate for political purposes tho Ame
rican interests in Hawaiian soil. It
is really a broach of virtually a public-trust
that such a work of rofor
onco as tho ono now roviowod, ex
cellent as it Is and almost indispens
able in other respects, should bo
debased to tho grade of a partisan
garchy as tho incarnation of re
generated liberty, equality and fin
tornity. An articlo which the an
nexation press horo republished last
week from Bradstroots assumes that
boforo tho lauding of tho L S.
troops tho constitutional govern
ment had resigned possession of
overythiug and everywhere Even
if it had boon so, it would only bo a
legal straw for potty jurists to
quibblo .on. Tho oquities of the
case would remain untouched.
Tho simple fact known to eye
witnesses is that tho conspirators
woro ilankcd by tho troops from tho
Boston while an American named
Coopor read a paper deposing tho
Queen. At tho conclusion of this
grand coromony all tnat Uoopor anu
his bakor's dozen of fellow-conspirators
woro in possession of was tho
Govornmont building, which after
office hours is usually deserted.
Howovor, on this occasion John A.
Hassiugor was obligingly prosont to
signify bis appreciation of tho "rot
ton monarchy" undor which ho has
fattened during all his official life,
by boing grand tylor to Bro. Cooper,
in uuuuing iuut yiuau xviiiuiiutiu um

ple's capital, and probably doclar-
Fit ra nn li r it I r Tina f rt 'a i wma

under arms, only forty feet from
whoro ho stood, that all was "fair
and squaro in tho oast."
It was noarly two hours after this
whon thirty-two vagrauts aud loaf
ors not a man in tho crowd of
which could bo put forward as ono
that could get trusted with a wook's
food led by J. n. boper, marcn
od to tho Police Station to go
through tho farce of taking it
against 230 mou inside, well armed
and equipped, natives and white
mou. aud who woro thoro to fight
for tho lovo of homo and not for a
day's pay. Will tho Advertiser
print tho. names of thoso famous
thirty-two patriots aud see how
man Americans woro there? Cer
tainly not five in all.
Such was tho advance guard of
the "patriotic. American colony,"
about which J. L. Stevens has beeu
busv in Maino woaviutr carlands
and "Plymouth Rock" halos. Tho
publication of thoir namos, if tho
Mattoro Boforo tho Bupromo
Advertiser will oblige, will prove
MomboiH of tho army of preach
ers, scribes aud miscellaneous hire
lings commissioned aud paid by tho
P. G. out of tho pooplo's taxes to
spread the go.spol of annexation in
the United States, have been trying
to excel oacli other in furnishing
lying statements to tho press. Even
tho groat showman-diplomat Thurs
ton coolly informs Secretary Gros
hain that hia government was recog
nized by nearly "all tho groat
poworp," whicli proves that Thurs
ton has so often dealt out this state
ment to the press and public, that
lie partly boliovos it himself.
When wo find n journal of tho
standing of Bradstroots imposed
upon by the army of P. G. vandals,"
iv is no surprise 10 iiuu mo smaller
journalistic fry ready to Mvallow
anything, and paint tho Dole oil-
that about half of thorn had been in
jail horo, and that evoryono of them
from Sopor down were thero for tho
dollar or two dollars a day that they
woro promised. Nearly all of thoni
were huddled together in a certain
house on Fort street, whoro their
board aud lodging was paid for by
a certain missionary lawyor for weeks
before. It was with much reluct
auco and oponly expressed dissatis
faction that the 2."() men in and out
side the Station Houso consented to
lay down their arms, and it was only
when Marshal Wilson read tho order
from tho Queen and Cabinet, and
intimated that tho United States
forces had oxpoused tho cause of tho
revolutionists, that peaceful surren
der was agreed to.
That night tho P. G. slept on a
volcano. It was known that 300
well-trained, woll-armed mon woro
in tho barracks who had for two
nights slept on thoir arms in the
hope of being at a moment's uotico
callod upon to quiet the small knot
of usurpers. These troops woro not
interfered with that night for tho
reason that, although thoir surren
der had been agreed upon, "to the
superior forces of tho United States,"
tho P. G. had no men to disarm
them. Had Marshal Wilson cho?o,
during any part of tho next fore
noon, to place himself at tho head
of this trained and devoted band,
thero would have boon a "short
shrift" for tho "patriots" in the Gov
ernment building, and tho United
Slates Govornmont would have iu
all probability presented tho spec
tacle of butchering tho natives while
defending their own rights.
It was not until late on Wed
nesday afternoon, that John Good,
ex-policeman, an American citi
zen; Arthur Coyne, Canadian, an
ex-gambling houso keeper, and
armorer Johnston, an American
citizen and but recently fiuod S25
for an offense in tho Polico Court,
did, as tho officers ot the P. G.
forces, commonco to disarm the
forces in tho barracks, and take pos
session of tho building, an impreg
nable position from which could
have beeu rainod shot and shell and
bullet all around.
That the position was surrendered
was due to the fact that the meet
ing nelu between J. Li. btovens,
Thurston, Soper and others ou the
previous Saturday, was also known
to loyalist leaders, and it was not
safe to take chances on how far tho
crank or dishonest diplomat might
stand by his throat to support tho
Provisional Government going with
him for annexation.
Some measure of J. L. Stevens'
honor is soon in tho acceptance of a
solid silver sorvico for services ren
dered to annexation, a proceeding
which tho rottouest monarchy on
earth would not allow.
Tho substantial question which
Bradstroots might enlighten tho in
habitants of distant islands on is
whether tho United States claims
tho right to grant letters of marque,
to all its "Coopor" citizonp, who
after having obtaiued tho courtesy
of douizouship iu a small nation,
shall crab it. aud in t he sacred name
of tho "Goddess of Liberty" and of
"I'lymoutu jiock" anu an ino sniu
boloths of holy Salem, proceed to
parcol out all in sight for them
selves. Virtuous indignation from tho
highest quarter is so far satisfactory;
Tn tho matters of tho estalo of tho
late J. F. O. Banning boforo the
Supremo Court, tho caso rotating to
commissions was argued and submit
ted this morning. Upon tho caso to
vacato a decree of Judgo Coopor in
tho Circuit Court, Messrs. Hartwoll
aud Kinney for Mrs, Banning and
sou moved for tho disqualification of
Justice Froar on tho ground that ho
had Massed unon some of tho mnt-
ters Involved when a Circuit Court
Judge. Tho motion was granted
and Judgo Whiting appointed to sit
in place of Justico Froar, and tho
caso was continued until Tuesday
next, to which time tho Court ad
journed. Itobt. C. Peterson has filed a dis
continuance of his action on tho
caso against Saniuol Ehrlich, "the
defendant doing likewiso with his
ponding couutor action." Defen
dant's counsel boing absent from
town his discontinuance has not yet
beeu filed. Tho suits rolato to a

tho Annexation Ulub room.

Messrs. H. iiackfeld tc Co. havo
filed a civil suit in tho Circuit Court
against tho following firms: C.
Brewer & Co., W, G. Irwin & Co.,
Casllo & Cooke, Thoo. H. Davios &
Co., Herman A. Widomann, aud A.

The complainants depose that in
tho year 1889 they entered into a
joint undertaking iu tho naturo of a
partnership lor the purpose of ob
taining an immigration of residents
of Madeira and of that neighbor
hood to this country to work as
agricultural laborers upon certain
plantations in which said complain
ants and defendants woro several in

tho Minister of Intorior to conduct
tho enterprise under tho auspices of
tho bureau of immigration. The
thon Minister of Interior approved
of tho undertaking and made cor
tain persons employed in said under
taking agents of tho buieau of immi
gration. Certain largo outlays wore
necessarily made, being principally
traveling expenses and salaries of
persons employed to proceed to Ma

It is almost a clay after the
fair to call your attention to
Christinas goods, but like the
ladder of fame there is always
room at the top, so there is
yet time to rrmind the people
that we havo 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 feeling 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 tne same time inexpensive I
presents. These goods com
prise, ls.nile Kests, baits 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 arc 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 ciav necessities ot me
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 suggested by 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
