Hy opening the liooiigatt of am

amount their miscellaneous fol

sowed the wind from which appear
ances indicate I hoy are beginning to
reap the whirlwind. What n picture
of practice following precept tho
revolution has afforded! Annoxatlou
to tho United .States was the 0110
iiiimmTkIi aim professed by its authors
niul npeuts at the start. Now those
of tho leaders who have not got fat

leagues so as to prevent tho coiu
pleto demoralization of every branch
of the public service.
Tho claptrap that wo henr so
much of on the divine right of kings,
appeals to and is elTectivo in draw
ing tlie plaudits of tho gallery; but
intelligent men will duly appreciate
the spurious pleading which eman
ates from tho stump. The late king
of the islands was elected by the
Legislature, as required by the Con
st itut ion, and was thereby as much
a ruler by the will of the people, as
a President selected by an electoral
college, or as President Dins of tho
liepublic of Mciico. who is to all
appearances destined to rule for life.
The present IJueon l.iliuokalaui also
holds her title to rule by selection
and umlor-oniont of tho Legislaluro
under Article XXII. of the Constitu
tion of Istll, and is therefore elected
by tin people.

their dishonesty by allowing L. A.

museum in his pocket, at a salary of

government of Stevens & Co.
It Was Their Own Fault.
Tho Star man again wailolh thus:
"From many persons directly inte
rested Mr. Blount took the state
ments of about sittv royalists and
only twonty supporters of tho Gov
ernment." O thou unfortunate
twinkling child of Ik-ol.obtib! Aro
you not awaro that thoro were only
about twonty supporters, all told, of
the P. G., who had tho courage to
face tho piercing nnd searching eyo
of Commissioner Blount! Tho good
commissioner's rooms woro open and
freo to all, hich and low. to come
and uuburuou themsolvos and stato
the facts. But it appears that the
balance of tho P. G. curios, who
were too dishonest to speak the
truth, had not the courage to stand
in the dreaded presence of Commis
sioner Blount with their jaws stuffed
with lies. Guilt had made them
cowards theroforo their absence.
That is about tho size of the busi
ness, my dear boy from San Diogo.

A Now Uoo for Goal Oil.
Coal oil has been used to prevent
tho formation of scale iu boilers
with considerable success, according
to W. A. Doblo, a inembor of tho
Technical Society of tho Pacific
Coast. His practice has been to
wash out tho boiler and when it is
refilled to add with the water about
two quarts of tho cheapest grado of
coal oil, which generally has a fire
test of about 100. Below tho sue-tion-pipo
of tho injector supplying
tho boiler is a well holding about
two quarts. Threo or four days
after tho water and oil are placed iu
tho boiler this woll is filled with oil,
and tho feed-walor passing over it
gradually carries it into tlio boiler.
It takes threo or four hours to dis
place nil tho oil. Iu threo or four
days tho well is filled again, and iu
all" about a gallon of oil is used. Its
effect is not to provont tho formation
of scale but to causotho limo to set
tle iu tho form of a looso powder,
which can bo easily blown out of tho
boiler when it is cleanod. It is of
Kouio interest to note iu this connec
tion that tho Gorman Govommout
has iccentlv authorized this means
of preventing scale iu the boilers of

By the ingenuity of man the
bath room of to-day is matin
quite as presentable as thu
parlor. In the United States,
where materials are close at
hand, even the medium priced
houses have the bath rooms
fitted with lloors 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 you in the store
is a good one for comfort be
cause it is broad, broad enough
in fact for the 1 4 foot shark
that died rather than go to the
Midwinter Fair. This tub has
a handsome relief panel on
the side and an oak rim
around the top, the faucets
and all trimmings are nickel.
1 aken 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, ror carvers it sur
passes the ordinary steel be
cause it requires less time and
puts a better edge op the
knife. Tho codKMvill find it
indispcnsible for use in the
kitchen in keeping his bread
knife always ready for use.
These sharpeners hkve been
introduced by Mr. Walcot, the
inventor, in every portion of
the world where knives are
used. In South Africa' they
sell lor tour shillings each, in
the Colonies two and six pence,
in the United States a lollar,
and here in I Ionolulu they arc
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 o? con
stant use will not wear it out,
and for that reason alone it is
worth its weight in coin of the
nalm to men on plantations
who are constantly buying files
to use in sharpening hoes and
cane knives, ror 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
ol 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'erigines 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.
