SATURDAY, DEC. HO, 1893.
THE CLOSING YEAIt.
On this occasion, tlio Inst issuo (if
tho Bulletin for I ho year 1893, wo
wish all ovir friends anil patrons hap
piness and prosperity for tho ap
proaching now year.
Both at homo and abroad tho year
that is fast obbing away has beou
uotnblo iu many rospocts. Thoro is
no need now to troublo our readers
with any detailed rotrospoctivo re
marks as to Hawaiian affairs for tho
year. Thoro has boon little to say on
this subject during tho year that was
not rotrospoctivo. Everything in our
condition harks back to tho events in
connection with tho overthrow of
Hawaii's timo-honorod political in
stitutions, coilplod with tho attempt
to dostro- forovor Hawaii's happily
independent existence for fifty yoars.
Sullico it to say now that tho friouds
of national iudopoudonco look for
ward with roasouablo hopofuluoss to
.tho coming year. Thoy depended
on tho traditional justico of tho
United Slates and her magnanimity
to weak nations, to right what thoy
boliovo to have been a grievous
wroug dono by tho representatives
of that nation to this country.
Their conBdcnco has proved abund
antly, so far as tho Executive of that
nation is concerned, to have beou
well placed. Appuarauccs aro that
Congress will havo proved equally
worthy of their trust. Thoy havo
in tho meantime reason to bo proud
of tho dignified bearing and discroot
conduct of tho Hawaiian pooplo in
all thoso mouths that they havo
been ruled by force bought with tho
forcefully attached revenues of tho
deposed Queon and her county.
Despite tho over pressing political
excitement, private business interests
in thoso islands have been wonder
hilly prosperous. Failures have been
less frequent, if we mistake not,
than in many previous years when
political inattors were comparatively
quiescent. An increase iu tho prico
of sugar which ruled for awhilo
inado tho balauco of trado always
on our sido all tho richer. Tho year
Ws seen tho starting of a now lino
of fine steamships across tho Pacific
betweon Australia and North Ame
rica with Honolulu as a calling port.
Outside of considerable streot and
sidewalk improvement, little has
boon dono in public works. Tho
military government is too expen
sive to leave much for permanent
improvements. That tho couutrj
still lives as well as it does under its
unwonted burdens only proves tho
great vitality of its resources.
Abroad the great event of tho
year has been tho World's Fair at
Chicago, in commemoration of tho
four hundredth anniversary of tho
discovery of America by Christopher
Columbus. All nations mot there to
show their choicest products and to
' do honor both to the United States
and the enterprising young giant
city of tho prairic3. It was far and
away tho greatest international ex
hibition ovor held.
Thero havo beou groat events in
international politics. (Jreatost has
been tho settlement of tho Eohring
Sea disputes between Great Britain
and tho United States by peaceful
arbitration and on terms mutually
satisfactory. It is another of a series
of such noble object lessons to tho
world. An alliance between tho
Empire of Uussia and tho liopublic
of Franco as an oluot to tho Triple
Alliiuu'o of Germany, Austria and
Italy with Great Britain supposed
ly in harmony thorowith, seems to
have been olfuctcd.
Central and South America have
produced little but wars ami rumors
of wars, and a desperate internecine
-t rife is still raging in the now re
public of Brazil with doubtful is
sues. Gladstone's iucnun of homo
rule for Ireland tiiumphcd in tho
people's House of Parliament, only
to bo rejected as expected by tho
House of Lords. This ovont marks
an advanced stago in tho long-pending
struggle, which may eventuate
yet in local solf-go eminent for each
groat division of tho United King
dom. In tho Uuitcd Stales President
Cleveland's aeei-s-imi lo power was
promptly followed by his pressing
through Congicv, a heroic moasuro
of relief from a bad curroncy situa
tion. Ho and Jih party havo still
i heir election pledjes of tariff re
form to carry out, and U103' havo
shown thoy will not tarry in tho
effort. The Hawaiian question thoy
jl'o Jiavo, but it is 0110 arisen out of
as it woro, sinco thoir vio-
toiy at tho pulls. Wo havo already
oxpicssed confidence in thorn for
rattling that honorably,
Thoro has been n fulness of cala

and a long list of dreadful railway
accidouts in tho United Stntos, to
gether with widospread financial dis
nstor in both tho United States and

a rathor sad yoar to many thousands
of our race.
This article does, not protond to
bo nu oxhaustivo roview of all ro
markablo ovonts of tho year, but
only a sort of sample shoot of hnp
poniugs of tho greatest nolo. Let
us hopo that tho coming year will

TOLICY OF THE PRESIDENT TO BE PCSIIEB.

Tho Souato Committeo ou Foreign

McCreary is also said to bo censured
for including Commander Wiltso in
his expressions of condemnation. It
is held wrong to condemn the dead
commander for carrying out orders
issued to him.
Chairman Wilson of tho Ways
and Moans Committee is roprosonted
as refusing to consent to tho first
two days aftor tho holidays being
given to tho Hawaiiau matter. If
this is true, tho objections of Wilson
have apparently been over-ruled, as
Chairman MeCreary assured tho
Houso that two days would be given
to tho Hawaiian question within tho
first ten days.
COMMODORE STANTON RESTORE.
Secretary Herbert has restored
Commodore Stanton to duty and
assigned him to tho command of tho

Metaphorically speaking the
world stands to-day on the
ragged skirts of the old year
and, in a perturbed state of
mind, contemplates the possi
bilities and probabilities of
1894. The commercial disas
ters which befel the United
States during the past twelve
months were of a character to
make the merchant, every
where, carefal as to his pur
chases as well as his sales.
The banker who watched the
"cent per cent" promissory
notes of his customers blos
som, left them to the receivers
to pluck the fruit.
As usilal, for hard times has
had no visible effect upon us,
we start the year with a large
assortment of handsome goods
as well as serviceable articles.
Wc can give you a plow a
Hendry Breaker that is both
handsome and serviceable in
the eyes of the plantation
manager, but which would be
unattractive to the lady who
sees more beauty in one of
our piano lamps. Our stock
is selected to suit people in all
classes of society from the 400
down, but the quality in each
class is the best, and that is
the reason that every article
we sell gives perfect satisfac
tion. The invoice of lamps we re
ceived just a little late for
Christmas included some very
handsome ones, perhaps the
prettiest we have ever had,
and do just as well after the
holidays as any other time;
and the silver ware looks just
as well on the table. The idea
that a man should buy for his
home such articles as these on
a certain day, or at some spe
cial season is a mistake; his
wife will enjoy them at any
Last week we sent to the
homes of three prominent Ho
nolulu people, Fischer steel
ranges. From two of them
we have reports that their
meals have been b.tter cook
ed than ever before, and the
amount of fuel required for
the service less. The ranges
we now sell you are made of
steel, just double the thickness
of any we have ever sold; this
means years of continued good
health to the stove. People
who have traveled on dining
cars in the United States will
understand the value of the
Fischer range when we tell
them that it is the one used
there. People here who have
the services of inferior cooks
will appreciate the value of a
Fischer range once they have
eaten a meal cooked on one
of these stoves. Compared
with the time they last, they
are cheaper than four ordinary
The Locked Fence is king
among fences, and we are the
sole agents for these Islands.
Like a good many other things
we sell you they last too long
to be profitable to any one but
the purchaser. Steel every
where lasts longer than wood!
Then why should not the
spring stays used in building
a locked fence outlast a wood
en post? As to strength,
there's no comparison; you
could turn loose a herd of
prize bullocks against the
Locked fence and not weaken
it, it's built with a view to re
sist the attacks of any number
of wild cattle. Its adoption by
plantation owners here is as
certain as anything can be, be
cause every one of them wants
to economize in every way
possible. There is no easiesr
way than this.
A weather prophet tells us
that the next summer will be a
dry one. If he is correct it
means a big business to us in
the way of Aermotors, and
the people who have had trou

fit by the suggestion and dig
wells. The Aermotor will
force the water anywhere once
you find it.
