Commissioner Blount had a long
iutorviow with Mr. Watorhouso, who
was also a mombor of tho committee
of safoty, and who, though also an
unwilling witness, corroborated Mr.
Wundonberg and Mr. Damon in
most of their statements.
THE OLIOABOHY'S NATAL SAY.
WHAT THEY CELEBRATE.
Our utilisation contemporaries
are indulging in reminisconces by
republishing biased reports of tho
formation of tho Provisional Gov
ernment. Wo do not propose to
follow their example to a great ex
tent, but what we shall repeat is
from the testimony of one of tho
most prominent members of tho
Provisional Government. It is
enough to show the hollow fraud of
tho colebratiou ho far as it purports
to commemorate a spontaneous and
successful revolution of the people.
Mr. S. M. Damon, tho present Minis
ter of Finance, is the witness. The
following portions of his testimony
are reprinted from extracts given in
this paper November 25 from Com
missioner Blount's report:
Damon, though a somewhat un
willing witness, corroborated tho
statement h made by Wuudenberg.
Ho described the starting from
Smith's olllco on Fort street. There
wore about eighteen men in all.
Damon says ther divided into two
bodies, taking different streets, be
cause they were afraid they might
attract at'tention. They were afraid
of boiug interfered with by tho pt.
lico, he says, showing that the
Queen's Government was still in
possession of the city. Tho men
straggled out mi as not to attract at
tention. At the Go (Turnout house, Damon
says, there was no one iavi tho
porters aud oflicials employed there,
hi other words the Government was
in possession anil was carrying ou
its affairs in tho regular way, with
out any excitemout and without any
attempts to organize for defense.
.Mr. (Joopor roau a proclamation,
and as the motnbers of tho commit
tee who had assembled for this pur
pose felt auxious about their per
sonal safoty, they sont word to Col
onel Sopor, in command of thoir
forces, for guards. Then it was that
men came running in with riilos in
In rospouso to Mr. Blount's ques
tion Mr. Damou said that ho aud
another member of the revolution
ary committoe went to tho station
ho'use to hold a conference with the
Mr. Blount endeavored to draw
from Mr. Damon the admission that
tho argument usod to induce tho
Queou's Ministers to surrender was
that United States troops wore
across tho street from tho Govern
ment buildings, iu full sympathy
with tho revolution.
Mr. Damon unwillingly admitted
that this was true, saynig, "Whilo I
was iu tho station house a mau
named Bowler said to mo, 'Wo are
all prepared to resist, but will nover
fight against the Amorican flag.' "
" was perfectly iiouplussod at uot
recoiviug thoir support. I could
not imagine why wo wore thoro
without Going supported by Ameri
can troops. Wo wore there fifteen
or twonty minutes without thoir
supporting us in any way."
Being askod what was accomplish
ed by tho first visit to tiio Station
House, Mr. Damon at lougth replied:
"The Queou's Ministers virtually gave
it up. They said if they had only
tho Provisional Government to con
tend with aud tho forces of the Pro
visional Government they would uot
Hurroudor. They felt that they could
meet tho emergency ,so far as tlio Pro
visional Government was concorncd,
but as it was, thoy were willing to
yield, aud the Minister aud 1 went
ulong with them to the palace.
"It was the Queen's Idea that sho
could surrender pending a settle-
Thoy are not only celebrating
what was a fraud in its origin, but
what has boon a dismal failure in its
achiovomonts. Tho Provisional Gov
orumout was formod professedly to
oxist until terms of union with tho
United States could bo negotiated
aud ratified. Iustead of that It is
under notice of ojoclmont as a
fraudulent teuant by tho Unilod
Statos Government. It is informed
by tho samo authority that tho ques
tion of annexation is a dead issuo.
What elso of achiovomout are thoy
colebratlng? Nothing but tho worst
failure of a govorumont that has
ovor oxistod in thoso islands. It is a
govorumont that has cost for its
own bare eolf-subsistouco to date, iu
round uumbors, $151,000 iu ono year,
or $31,000 more than tho entire ap
propriations for tho civil list, pen
sions, Legislature and Privy Coun
cil, and military of tho monarchy,
for tho two years from March 81,
1802. Thoro has nevor )xxa a year
for many years past so barren in
tho prosecution of public works.
Crime of all kinds has iucroasod.
Tho revenue sorvico has bo
come tho langhlug-stock of smug
glers under this Provisional Gov
ernment. Not for seven years havo
the maker aud oxocutors of tho laws
ho revelled in treasury patronage
for thoir own business houses, or
seized upon salaried offices for thorn
selves aud their relatives to a grcator
extent. Surely if the P. G. and
their supporters took a good look at
themselves they would bo ashamed
to engage in any celebration of thoir
lirht anniversary. Thoir revolution
has blocked capital from entering
the country, aud blighted all tho
favorable conditions that existed for
a fair year's business. Tho first an
niversary, moreover, finds tho party
of tho P. G. torn by dissousiou, men
aced by its own rabbles, aud dis
tracted by a score of conflicting is
sues aud cross purposos. Thoy havo
glutted themselves with moan re
venges ou thoso who refused to wor
ship tho green image of the P. G.,
but find themsolvos without enough
spoils to sato tho groody appotito of
the motley hordoa of thoir support
ers. Well may it bo askod, What are
they celobrating? At tho samo time,
let them colobrato to their heart's
content. Even whilo the sulphur of
their fireworks fills tho air, the
smoke of tho approaching mail
stcamor may bo writing their doom
in the sky.
As to Mr. Vivas.

yesterday a lotter from Mr. J. M.
Vivas, stating that his namo was put

Celebration of tho First Anniversary
of the Provisional Government.
Tho eclobration of tho first anni
versary of tho P. G. began at sun
rise tins morning witn a national
saluto from tho field battory. This
was followed at 0:30 o'clock with tho
antiques and horriblos parade. A
number of broken-down animals
driven to rickety vehicles paraded
tho streets, soveral going their own
way. After a drivo about tho town
the participants put up and, sad to
relate, the prizes of $10, 57.60, $5
and $2.50 were all won by royalists.
The first prize xrta won by a num
ber of darkonod faces in a vehicle
running on two bullock cart wheels
in frout aud two carriage wheels bo-
hiud. There was a stovo with chim
ney ou the vehiclo and all sorts of
funuyosities. The second prize was
won by three royalists iu tho char
acter of "Joblots." The third was
wou by "Huki mat ka Ulua" iu a
small cart driven to a juvenilo jack
ass. The fourth was won by a rider
on a bullock.
HOtSTINO THE rL.UI.
After tho antiques aud horribles
tho uext event was tho hoisting of
the sixty-foot Hag on the new polo of
the Amorican League on King near
Nuuanu street. Thoro" wis a largo
number of ladies present iu addition
to members of the Amorican League.
The assciUblago, which did not in
clude any prominent tnemler of tho
P. G., unmoored about two hundred
souls. Ton mombors of the league
handled tho halliards and hoisted
tho flag at 8 o'clock. As tho flag
was going up a mau named Sampson
tried to break a bottlo of champaguo
on tho ropes, but ho failod and thou
smashed it ou tho flagpole. Tho
baud played for about half an hour,
aud a number of Chinoso bombs
wore exploded on tho street, fright
ening several horses.

Saturday, Jan. 13, 1894.
By the ingenuity of man tho
bath room of to-day is made
quite as presentable as the
parlor. In the United States,
where materials are close at
hand, even the medium priced
nouses have the bath rooms
fitted with floors and wain
scoting of tile, as fitting ac
companiments to the enamel
baths. But tile floors are not
absolutely necessary to the
comfort of the person who
uses the Standard Manufac
turing Co.'s enamel tubs
"the tub's the thing." We
have in stock, some very hand
some patterns of enamel tubs
and some quite plain. The
one we show vou in the store
is a good one for comfort be
cause it is broad, broad enough
in fact for the 14 foot shark
that died rather than go to the
Midwinter Fair. This tub has
a handsome relief panel on
the side ana an oak rim
around the top, the faucets
and all trimmings arc nickel.
Taken as a whole it is a very
handsome and useful article
for a gentleman's home.
We've seen all sorts of ma
chines and contrivances for
sharpening cutlery but noth
ing to equal Frank Walcot's
emery file. A half minute
will suffice to sharpen the dull
est of knives or scissors with
out the slightest injury to the
cutlery. For carvers it sur
passes the ordinary steel be
cause it requires less time and
puts a better, edge on the
knife. The cook will find it
indispcnsiblc for use in the
kitchen in keeping his bread
knife always ready for use.
These sharpeners have been
introduced by Mr. Walcot, the
inventor, in every portion of
the world where knives are
used. In South Africa they
sell for four shillings each, in
the Colonies two and six pence,
in the United States a dollar,
and here in Honolulu they are
worth two dollars each but we
let you have them for fifty
cents. Goods do not always
bring their value in this coun
try. One of the beauties of
this sharpener is its long life;
seven or eight years of con
stant use will not wear it out,
and for that reason alone ft is
worth its weight in coin of the
realm to men on plantations
who are constantly buying files
to use in sharpening hoes and
cane knives. For an all 'round
sharpener it has no equal.
The people who are using
the Colorado brand of lubri
cating oils express themselves
as being very well satisfied
with the quality. Of course
you can get a cheaper oil just
as you can get a cheap quality
of anything else, but who wants
to use an inferior quality of
oils on good machinery!" A
superintending engineer here
tells that he has discarded lard
oil from the engines under his
supervision and substituted
our Colorado engine oil; this
must be a matter of consider
able saving with lard oil at
$1.25 per gallon. We men
tion oils at this time because
it is the season when they are
being used on plantations.
Our success with the plows
has been on a par with our
oils. No one has ever seen a
breaking plow to equal the
Hendry. Nor has there ever
been invented a furrow plow
with as many points of excel
lence as the Hendry Double
Furrow plow embraces. These
plows are a necessity on plan
tations. Our stock includes
about everything to be used
where the ground is tilled
and the cane ground or the
juice boiled. In belting we
have the most superior grades
of genuine oak tanned and of
all sizes. We have also the
genuine Helvetia for centri
fugals. By constant additions to it
we continue to keep our stock
of goods for the household the
largest in Honolulu, and by
the devotion of care and atten
tion to the selection of the arti
cles for your use we are en
abled to offer them to you at
much lower prices than you
have been accustomed to.
