Musical circles in Honolulu will
want to get au early chance at .Sulli
van's latest opera, the initial produc
tion of which in Loudon is reported
in this issue.
Mark Twain makes one of his
characters in the story of "Fudd'u
head Wilson" say that a certain fel
low was slain because he "needed
killiu'." Somebody or something
needs "killiu' " in New Vork, accord
ing to tho revelations of rotteuners
iu its police department, of which
some particulars nro giveu iu this
It has Ik'cii decided, by a commit
tee iu that matter appointed, to ralno
more money for putting a new roof
on Kawaiahao church by selling
pamphlets, containing a lu&tory and
a picture of the building, at a dollar
each. If the Councils were still iu
existence, it would Ih easy to got a
law passed to compel everybody to
buy one of the pamphlets.
Electricity has worked as great
advantages to navigation as to any
other human concern that can be
named. Us use iu signals and light
ing ou board both merchautueu
and men-of-war is invaluable. As
the illuminating agent of light
houses its superseding of fish aud
coal oils has amounted to a revolu
tion. A description of a prodigious
light to be erected on Fire 1 si ami,
to guide the great floating palaces

pears iu-today's paper.
An interesting tangle of tho Duke
of York's baby's relationship to
himself aud his progenitors will be
found in this paper. By the way,
the "dook" himself is likely to be
seen iu Honolulu the coming year.
He is reported to have iu contem
plation a jouruey to Australia by
way of Canada. A side streut iu
Honolulu is called after his uncle, the
Duke of Ediuburgh, from the fact
of that gentleman's having lodged
in a hotel there. Tho building is
till standing aud iu use by the Ha
waiian Carriage Manufacturing Com
pany. It would be a benefit as extensive
as the Universal Postal Union itself
to have nu international postage
stamp. People iu the United States
ofteu send their owu country's
stamps to newspaper ollices iu Ho
nolulu for sample papers, aud Cana
dians havo a reckless habit of enclos
ing their dimes for a similar object.
Iu tho "Jato onpleanantiioBS," when
Hawaiian affairs were "paramount"
iu interest abroad, these favors
amounted to a positive uuisauce.

It is gratifying to find some evi

Tho new Hoard of Education wants
to have a uow high school building
arectod. Such buildings as the pre
out high or "select," as it is called
school inhabits aro a disgrace to
the city. After having a building
erected the Board would show still
moro allinity with Americnu ideas by
making tho high or'Vlect" school
niado frco to nil who could pas a
prescribed examination. In the
United States and xotne proviucos of
Canada, a young person may matri
culate in a university without ever
having had a tuition fee paid on his
account. It should be the same
here, although a venerabl and
wealthy member of tho old House of
Nobles used to say that free edu
cation pauperized tlw people. Those
who talk like that uowadays are
simply back numb'trs aud ought to
be buried, dead or alive, aud their
wealt h if t hey leave any be escheated
for the cauio of natioual education.
Nine or teu thousaud dollars are
now contributed to tho revenue of
tho country by those responsible for
the pupils of the Fort street select
school, who also pay taxes in pro
portion to their property for the
ttupport of tho free schools of the
country. This school does as good
work as the average academy of the
United States, but there no tuitiou
fees are charged. We want in Ha
waii an educational system in which
a thorough high school education
may be obtaiued without money aud
without price, excepting for the
expense of sustenance of tho child.
This is tho ideal national educa
tional system no more and no less.
LOST A KAN'S WATOH.
Strange Dealings of a Chinese Watch
maker With a Customer.
Harry Evans, turnkey at the Po
lice Station, mourns the loss of au
elegant Euglish silver watch pre
sented to him by a relative. It ap
pears that bo had given the watch to
a Chinese watchmaker to have clean
ed. The Chinaman took a liking to
tho ticker aud on Evans' calling ho
olTered him a gold ouo. Evans pre
ferred his owu watch, which he priz
ed more than any two gold watches,
ou account of the one who presented
it to him. Tuo watchmaker said bo
would look it up aud promised to
produce it iu a few days. Ou Evans'
next calling au Euglish made watch
was exhibited, but it happened to
have the name of a different maker
from that of tho one wanted. Tho
watchmaker was arrested yesterday
aud is out on SWX) bail. He has
again promised to make good the
loss and asked that he bo allowed
until Monday next. Judge Perry al
lowed the coutluuauce iu the District
Train-Wrecking Attunptod by Vivo
A u attempt was made to wreck a
train carrying about 150 laborers ou
(he Waiauae extension of the Oahu
Railway this morning. Five Japau
eo were arrested and two turned
Miilo'd evidence, giving their accom
in n-es away. i rom tueir story it is
learned tint ou Weduetdav evening
tlicM- five Japanese were left behind,
not being at the station iu time to
be taken hme. Consequently they
had to uuik. On the way they took
a number of poles from fences ou
the wayside and piled them up on
t lie track. Tho traiu came along
this muming, but fortunately there
was not a full head of steam ou aud
the train was stopped a fow yards
from tho obstruction. If tho engine
had been going at full speed the re
sult would probably have Iteen dis

ou the traiu were very thankful in

the complaiuaut sigued the deed
simply as a release of his interest iu

"You assume all the liabilities,

Fedora AtcNiimee was mad.
Not mad in the sense which
learned people use the word
but in the common acceptance
of the term. Seven evenings
each week for months had
Count Luigi Spaghetti called
upon her, and her mind was
set upon a proposal from him;
seven nights in the week for
months Fedora had appeared
before the Count in her most
fetching gowns, and each time
he was more effusive in his
protestations of love. Visions
of castles, gondoliers, and of
Venice, dear watery Venice
filled her soul. Fedora, the
beautiful, was to be a countess.
She would make her father an
earl and her mother an earless
when Luigi took her to his
home in Italy.
The guys who passed her on
the avenue with sky pointed
noses because her father, as a
member of the force, had
grown rich before the Lexow
Committee had begun its work
would now fall at her feet and
she could be "swagger." But
Fedora AteNamee was mad.
After the Count had left her
on his two hundred and thir
teenth consecutive visit Ber
nard AkNamee called his
daughter to his side and laying
down AcKanes' "Purity in
Politics" addressed her thus:
"Fedora me child, you're
your father's joy and your
mither's hope. It's me ambi
tion to have yez kirn to the
frint an' take a shtep in the
sasietce in which your father,
as a descendant of Brian Born,
mingled in his ould home in En
niskillin. It's me wish to see
yez the Queen of Vinnis, but,
me daughter dear, from what
the byes do be tollhi me Shpa
getti's not fixed. He's no
count, an if yez marry him
yez'll have no ryall bind in your
veins. O'Hoolihan, him that
keeps the 'O'Hoolihan Cafe' in
the next warrud, tells me, an'
he's a good frind of mine, that
for siven weeks Shpaghetti's
been eatin' at his place and
whin he wants a shtake he
calls for 'shlaugjiter in the pan.'

wich street 'coffee an' sinkers'

Fedora AkNamee was mad.
The two large, full grown
Refrigerators you saw in our
store last week have been sold.
If your needs require one of
this style you must wait until
the "Australia" returns before
you can get it. If you will be
satisfied with a smaller one we
can let you have an "Alaska"
hardwood refrigerator that will
tickle you almost to death.
We've sold hundreds of refri
gerators and ice boxes since
we have been in business but
none of them will compare in
ice saving qualities with the
Alaska; there's only one of
them left others on the way.
We have watched more
heart thrills in people who were
examining our Solid Silver
Ware than you could expect to
find in a society drama. It is
astonishing what real values
you get when you purchase
such things from us. We
bought them at a low price
and you get whatever benefit
there is. The designs are the
latest, the quality the best and
the price the lowest a combi
nation that is hard to beat.
The plated ware we show is
pre-eminently the best in I lono
lulu. There's no excuse for
your not giving useful pre
sents for Christmas because
this year high prices do not
stand in the way. We hive a
Biscuit Jar in our window
pretty enough for anyone and
