most a platform in itself." Nothing
more definite than thi condensed

agreed upon by the discordant ele

tempted to construct a party.
President Dole has failed in his
effort to construct a representative

Agnostic (or no religion) and the
Catholic being given a place. As to

"V. X. A." and the Advertiser,
which publishes that uudesiiable

Davies with threats of prosecution
ami it criminal' cell. This only
shows the cowardly nature of the
beasts, and how utterly foreign is
the bent of their mi'ids to American
ideas of liberty. After deliberately
assuming such a vindictive attitude
toward a man whom they cannot

A man who has published to tin

ILLICIT OPIUM TltAFKIO.
The bark ,S. (.'. Allen arrived from
San Francisco mi February 7th. On
the previous day, it wa reported in
the lltxLCTiN that Joseph Casiero,
cook on the bark, and J. Lario, cabin
boy, were arrested in San Francisco
in the act of smuggling opium on
board the Allen for transportation
hero. Tim S. C. Allen began dis
charging on the Hth and a few das
ago her cargo was all out, and she
was moved over to the Fishmarket
wharf, whore she is now lying. On
.Monday evening, after the hark had
been lying at Honolulu twelve davs,
Casiuro the cook comes ashore with
twenty tins of opium, and two ua
tivo detectives, one of whom ht.s
since died, were cut with a knife
while arresting him. Tint ipiestion
is, Where had Port Surveyor Sanders
and his "eagle-eyed" aids been keep,
ing themselves those twelve d.is?
Were they ''otherwise engaged" oi
watching something else? An ap
propriatiou for additional guards
was made some time ago, to rectify
iu some measure the cheese-paring
folly of the "ways and meaim" com
mittee of the Legislature. Opium is
said by a P. G. organ to be so cheap
now, owing presumably to its plenti
fulncHs, that It is hanll worthwhile
smuggling it. Yet ex -.Minister Ste
vens would have tho United Slates
public believe thai the opium ring
went down with the tluoue in the
EUROPE'S ARMED FORCES.
In General Alison's opinion, the
disposition of her troops in Trans
eapia proves that, so loug as Russia
continues to miss hor forces on the
German frontier, she will be in
capable of making any move on In
dia or Afghanistan. ith only 51 -O.X)
troops in tho whole of her trans
easpinu dominions, Kussia would not
think of moving on India where she
wou'd have to face 1218.000 native
troops in addition to 7-1,100 British,
putting aside the Afghans who
would light for their British allies.
u.ia will probably try to induce
England to believe that she will in
tend a move on India by pushing
troops on Herat and tho Pamirs, so
as to chain tho British force there,
and prevent them from being moved
to where they would encounter her
nearer homo. In the meant itne Rus
sia's real move will be oil Constanti

This is too shabby a trick for oven

that the Board of Education will
not do so. This teacher, although
dirty, is ambitious, and not long

Saturday, Feb. J7, 18U.
For about a year we've been
selling a French rat trap that
will catch as many as nine rats
at one seance. Some people,
those who have good dogs, pre
fer this trap because it pro
vides amusement for the ca
nine as well as the owner, the
rats being caught alive. The
only objection to this sort of
trap is the price. People who
have no particular interest in
live rats objected to the price
of the French process of catch
ing them. A cheaper variety,
and a most excellent one, is
called the "Little Giant," which
is bound to kill every rat or
mouse that sticks his nose
against the bait. We have set
six traps in a night and found
a dead rat in each one the
next morning. They are really
very good and cheap.
The consumer in Honolulu
may not have felt it but there's
been a shortage in charcoal
irons in this city during the
past six weeks. These things
come from Europe generally
and the tardy arrival of ships
around the Horn caused the
shortage. We have a few for
the retail trade and if you hap
pen to be in need of one now
is the time to subscribe.
By the "Alden Besse" we
received a number of very
pretty porcelain shades for
lamps. These are handsomely
decorated and are suitable for
small lamps for any room in
the house. Some very pretty
and novel table bells came to
us by the same vessel and
from their appearance we don't
imagine they will be long in
stock. These include the
popular electric bell that rings
the same as if you touched a
Hunter's Hour sifters have
taken first place in the kitchen
for sifting flour. They are a
convenient article and the
llour is made very much finer
than by any other sort of
Honolulu is very much like
some cities in the United
States. At least one day in
the week the whole town is on
wheels. It don't make much
difference whether your horse
is good, bad or indifferent a
whip and a cheap article is
worthless. We have recently
added some very good ones to
our stock which we sell at rea
sonable prices; you cannot fail
to be pleased with the one you
get of us.
Is it worth while saying any
thing more about the Jones
locked fence? It is growing
in favor so rapidly that every
one seems to know that it is
really the best fence to set up.
The economy of building and
strength after it is erected are
the two points that sell it. In
the numerous letters we have
had from people who have
used it there is not a line or a
word in contradiction of our
statements. People who buy a
trial lot of stays and washers
always send in a second order.
We are making a specialty of
this fence because we have had
encouragement from the peo
ple who are using it; we are
convinced that it is the best
and most economical fence
As with the fence so with
the enamel bath tubs. Success
has rewarded our efforts to
bring them before the public.
The bath tubs, however, were
well known to every one here
through the advertisements in
magazines, people read them
every month so that they are
is familiar as A B C. We
have a lame assortment of
tubs and sinks anil can give
them to you at various prices.
