THE PKLSIDKNT'S POLICY.
Has President Cleveland aliau
doued his policy regarding this
country.' According to some United
States papers, echoed gladly by the
1. G. organs here, ho has. The fact?
thus far published do not uphold
this view. President ('lowland never
owned the policy that ho was in
sanely nhiic for by P. (. ulllcial
and journalist here, and t he iiieiuie
of his aduiiiiiM ration in the United
Stales. He ua eliiir 'fil uilli in:il;- !
ing war on the l'rovi.innal tioveru
lllellt without the eouseul of Coil
grc.s, but on the facts coming out it
was made clear thai he was trying
to hav. the monarchy restored 1
peaceful mean.-. The President wa
charged with having assumed
through Minister Willis military
domination over the i.-latuls to in
timidate the Provisional Govern
ment into a meek surrender when
requested. It afteiward I ill lied out
that the Minister's public declara
tiou, lli.it the United States force
would take euro of tho peace of the
community, was due to an appeal to
him by Mr. Damon, Minister of Fi
nance in the Piovisiuual Gov
ernment, for protection ngaiuM
a possible uprising of royalists
mi Kalakaua's hiithday. Pre.iideut
Dole, in Ins specifications of an uu
fnondl.v "altitude" on the part id
the American Minister, ignored tin
fact of Mr. Danum's appeal for pro
tection on that occasion, as he had
previously repudiated all re-poii-i
bdity on the part of the Provisional
Government for Mr. Damon's advice
to the ljueell to sill render to the
United Mali's foices under protest
on Jaiiuarv I". I "s'.i.'J. There is not
one iota of evidence extant that
Presidout Cleveland ever contem
plated using force, on his own re
sponsibility, to ellcct the restora
tion of the monarchy. When he
found that his policv could not
be carried out by peaceable medi
ation, he refened the whole mat
ter to Congress. Did that implv
that he had abandoned his policv .'
Nobody of any intelligence will an
swer in the allirmutive. A re-olu
tiou was pending in the House of
Representative.-, at laieat accounts,
to confirm the policy of the Presi
dent regarding this couiitrj. No
doubt a similar re-olutioii will have
been presented to the Senate. Tiu
Presideut has laid incontrovertible
proof before Congress that lu- pohoj
is identified with the principles of
international law and the honor of
the United States. Theie is no visi
ble alternative to his policy winch is
not hedged with great dillicullie.-.
The fact remains that the President
has not abandoned his policv, but
committed it to the honor of the na
lion, and there is a loasonnhlc pios
peel that Congress will prove not
unworthy of the trust.

for such a state of mutual dissatis

not dare sje;ii his mum- to a com

as the rascal who sneaks in

blame Mr. M. P. Sdva in his indig

with him that no true Portuguese

why could there not bo a great

popular ballads, would make a grand

Saturday, Feb. 10, 1894
The following is copied from
a circular issued by the man
ufacturers of the Jones Locked
Wire Fence and is of interest
to the Hawaiian people:
"While our spring trade was
retarded by unseasonable wea
ther, and the financial crisis
which followed threatened to
destroy the commerce of an
entire nation, we cannot com
plain, for, as compared with
business in general, our suc
cess has been phenomenal, this
being due not alone to our
complete business organiza
tion, but to the superiority of
the Locked Wire System.
"Notwithstanding the gloo
my outlook for all branches of
trade in '93, we adhered to
our original intention of ex
hibiting at the World's Colum
bian Exposition, and the re
sults have more than justified
the enormous attendant outlay,
and have well repaid us for
consulting our courage rather
than our discretion in deter
mining to place our exhibit in
the face of the many difficul
ties confronting us. The most
pleasing, perhaps, because the
earliest decided recognition of
the merits of our exhibit, was
the selection of our fence by
the Commissioners, from
among the many displayed, as
being the best adapted to the
construction of paddocks for
the recreation of the high bred
stock of the entire civilized
"In consequence of this, the
interest in our display was in
tensified, this question being
one of vital importance to all
land owners, as about one
fourth of all landed values is
invested in fences. Our pur
pose was to attract this spirit
of inquiry and thereby farther
the interests of ourselves
and of our fellow-workers in
the United States, in which
object we were by no means
disappointed, as the great
amount of advertising we have
obtained by this method has
already more than reimbursed
us, to say nothing of the in
crease of orders traceable
directly to this source, which
itself has more than repaid the
"While our chief intention
was to benefit our own trade
here, we were agreeably sur
prised at the earnest attention
manifested by our foreign visi
tors who came again and again
bringing their friends and in
terpreters, and talking busi
ness to such purpose that we
now have buyers in Germany,
Russia, France, India, Den
mark, Sweden, Argentine Re
public, South Africa, Victoria,
South Australia, New Zealand
and the Sandwich Islands In
regard to these two latter and
especially the Sandwich Islands
we can not say that our trade
was due to the World's Fair,
as our extensive business rela
tions with Honolulu had com
menced previous to this time.
"nut the crowning recogni
tion of the merits of our fence
was the First Medal and Dip
loma which was awarded with
out any hesitation on the part
of the Judges.
"In this connection we would
recall to your mind the fact
that we were the recipients of
the same honor at the Detroit
Exposition in 1S92.
"Gratifying as our rapid pro
gress has been in the past, we
look forward to a still more
