It would seem as if the sensa
tional story about fresh shipments
of rebel arms from tho Coast was
the product of invention or imagin

So much of congressional and
popular sentiment as has been elicit
ed in the United States by tho news
of the Honolulu insurrection con
tains much less direct encourage
ment of hope for early annexation
than many people had anticipated.
That this exciting incident in Ha
waiian affairs will indirectly pro
moto annexation, however, there is
little doubt. Tho dearth of favor
nolo views to tho cause rellocted
back ought to conriuce reasonable
minds that it is impolitic to allow
United States party politics to be
imported into the question at this
end of the line, ami unfortunate
to have the question involved in the
strife of parties at the other end of
the line. If either party should
make annexation an issue in favor,
and the other party should take
up the gage in opposition, the
result would probably be indefi
nite postponement of the con
summation. That the Republican
party is not so prepared to commit
itself to the project as has been con
tended here is apparently evident
Irom the absence of any resolution,
since the news of the insurrection
went over, in favor of annexation.
As the Bulletin said before the out
break, the most availing argument
for annexation, to be put forth in
the United States, is evidence of a
general desire ou the p.irt of the
native Hawaiiaus for the union of
the Republic of Hawaii to the great
Republic of America.

Is it possible that the ban
quet prepared on the "Phila
delphia" for fiiends of the ofli
ceis of the warship, and which
was not seived, may have
something to do'with the ves
sel's delay in ai riving here;
there's danger in over-feeding
just as there is in not giving
men enough. As the "Phila
delphia" left a day before the
"Australia," and as it was an
nounced that she would reach
here in seven days there may
be just cause for the anxiety
felt in ceitain circles. If the

If you've had any difikulty
in cutting- warm bread or cake
with an ordinary knife you had
better spend a dollar for a set
of Ckuiss Bread Knives; your
troubles will cease, then, in
this respect. This knife is one
that got such a reputation dur
ing the Woild's 1-air and it is
one of the few cheap things
that have proven to be really
good. They are made of the
best quality Aluminum steel,
the refuse fiom the great saw
works in the United States.
There is nothing cheap about
them but the price.

but good to say of them and
can recommend them to any
one who wants a machine that
will sew three stitches without
the change of a needle. You
can get a machine that will
sew the chain stitch and you
pay 570 for it, for just that
put pose you get a good ma
chine for the money. No lady,
however, can get along with a
sewing machine that does only
one style sewing; the day for
that has passed, the average
boy and girl of to-day re
quire harder sewing than can
be procured with a chain stitch.
You can get a sewing machine
that will sew a splendid lock
Mitch for $50, but the lady who
wants putted sleeves and rullles
needs something more than a
lock stitch, a i utile must be
sewed with an easier stitch
and the chain is the best. The
Weitheim sews three distinct
stitches the chain, the lock
and the combined chain and
lock and you can gel one of
Ihe machines from us for $45,
or one a little better finished

much genuine satisfaction out
of any machine as you can out
of a Wertheim.
