TUESDAY, FEB. f. W5.
Evidently tho Advortisor doos uot
appreciato tho ood olllcos of tho
Uullktin iu oucJisavoring to savo it
from trouble with n guntln eautiou
born of old sores.
That wealth is not respected by
tho United States Government as
putting its possessor above tho law
is shown by tho prosocutiou of Now
York brohors for rofusiug to givo
ovideuoo in tho sugar investigation
There has boon introduced in Con
gress, as will bo soeti in our news
columns, a joint resolution for an
amonduieut to tho Constitution ab
solutely prohibiting tho upo of
Unitod Slates rovonuo or credit for
sectarian education. Tho Constitu
tion of tho Republic of Hawaii has
such a provision for this country.
For suvoral yours discussion of a
permanent arbitration convention
between Great Britain aud the
United States has been going on. It
has now come to a head by tho pre
sentation of a memorial from tho
British House of Commons to Prcsi
dout Cleveland in favor of tho con
summation so devoutly to bo wished.
Trade between the United States ,
and Germany has become seriously
affected by legislation on either sido
which is taken as hostile by tho
other. Germany does uot liko tho
American sugar tariff, aud resents it
by placing au embargo on American
cattle and meat. Au account is '
given elsewhere of tho latest devel
opment of the case, which is the
checking of American cattle exports j
to Germany by way of tho British
kind of smuggling that pays under
our mild customs tariff. Thoro ia a
plausible scheme for having a swift
steamer available, in extraordinary
contingencies, however, which per
haps tho Government may sco fit to
take luto consideration. It would
combino a groat boon upon tho pub
lic in ordinary tiiufs as well as servo
tho Govorutuout well in emergen
cies. This Bcheme which is now
broached is to subsidize a fast pas
sougor aud mail steamer to run be
tween Honolulu and Uilo, calling at
some port on Maui. Such a boat
would not tako loads of sugar but
only express freight and mails be
sides pasfongers. Without tho an
noyauce of long wails rolling iu tho
waves with a sickening monotony nt
ovory plantation lauding, a boat of
this sort would build up a passenger
t radio for itself aud bo a great pro
motor of commercial traQlc between
tho islands. It would bo an addi
tional attrantiou for tourists, allow
ing mauy who now pas through
without seeing tun volcano to have
that raro privilege. Tho subsidy
would have to bo a pretty largo ono
uo doubt, but nothing to what tho
country would have to pay for tho
maintenance of a steamer for Gov
ern mont service exclusively. By her
frequent trips, perhaps varied iu
courso at different times, this packet
steamer would furnish a very fair
sort of patrol of tho coasts for tho
discovery of suspicious craft inci
dentally. Siio would confer no
small boon on tho now rather iso
lated communities of the othor isl
ands by the additional mail facili
ties sho would afford. Tho few
times that sho would bo called off
her route for particular Government
servico would be an inconvenience
which would bo easily borne in view
of her great benefits in ordinary
times. Lot tho matter bo duly considered.
A RtVENUE CUTTER.
Events of tho past few weeks havo
caused a lovival of discussion on the
matter of a rovouuo cuttor. When
tho late King was looking out for
a man-of-war to tako his embassy to
Samoa, it was suggested by some
people who opposed that folly that
there would bo a grain of souse iu
getting a smart little steamer to
guard tho coasts agaiuht smuggling.
There was no use in talking sense at
that time, however, aud so an old
tramp steamer was bought aud fit
ted up at au enormous oxponio.
After she had served her brief aud
inglorious turn iu making Hawaii a
laughing-stock, this steamer was
brought back and sold at auction
only to bo a white elephaut on tho
bauds of her purchasers. The money
expended on that mariuo curio, now
lying iu rotten row, might havo pro
vided a serviceablo steamer for tho
use of tho Government. Yet it is
not certain that a revopuo cutter
comes ahead of mauy othor public
improvements needed by tho coun
try at this timo. Tho Government
tugboat has proved within tho past
few weeks to bo all that is required
for patrol work, not to mention hor
eminent services in tho lato war as a
gunboat, so far as the coast of this
islaud is concerned. Iu some mouths
of tho j'oar thoro are Bteamors avail
able for charter by tho Government
to go on long cruisos. For instauco,
thoro woro tho Claudino's voyage to
San Froncisco aud the Iwalaui's an
nexing expedition to Neckor island,
both of which woro accomplished
satisfactorily to tho Govornmont. It
would hardly pay to buy and maiu
taiu a rovouuo cutter for such ex
traordinary oxpoditions as thoso
mentioned. Tho successful lauding
of ammunitions of war for an in
surrection by tho steamer Waima
ualo has boon usod as an nrgumout
for having a Govornmont vessel bo
sides tho tug-boat. Yot if tho
Govornmont had, boon apprised of
that daugor, tho tug-boat would
havo boou all that was neces
sary to head tho seditious craft,
off. Again, it is doubtful if tho
gamo would bo worth the can
dlo to maintain such a vessel as that
iu quostiou for tho provontiou of
opium smuggling, about tho only
THE CITIZENS' GUARD.
The Flan of Reorganization Not Yet
A morning paper purports to give
tho entire plan of reorganization of
tho Citizens' Guard, but it would
eem that it is somewhat previous iu
so doing. Iu conversation with sev
eral prominent motnbers of that
body this morning a Bulletin re
porter was informed that such re
organization was uot yet perfected
aud probably would uot bo so until
after martial law was ended. One
high oflloiai of the Guard said that
' ho considered such action at the pre
sent moment ill-timed, as it would
iuterforo vory much with discipline,
aud assigu members to tho command
of thoso whom they were not fami
liar with and to places probably ro-
' mote from their homos. Iu this view
ho further said ho was supported by
nearly all members with whom ho
had talked on tho subject.
It is understood that a meeting of
tho officials of tho Citizens' Guard
will bo hold lo-uighr, forthopurposo
of considering aud agreeing upon a
plan oi re-orgauizatiou, aim tuat
such plau will be afterwards sub
mitted to a mass mooting of tho
members to bo called after tho pro
sent trouble is ondod.

1 The occasional heavy rains
' we are having appears, to the
uninitiated, like a balm to the
' injured roses and tropical foli
age for which Honolulu was
once famous. You've noticed,
1 perhaps, the absence of the
rose bug for several weeks
past; they seem to have disap
peared as effectually as the car
goes of some of the mysterious
crafts that enter the port. But
they are simply taking a vaca
tion; if you will dig down into
the soft earth you will find
hundreds of little white worms
which, if these heavy rains do
not kill them, will in a short
time develop into full fledged
rose bugs. Without knowing
positively that the rain will kill
the larvae we would imagine
it would do what nothing else
The Grand Rapids Carpet
, Sweeper is as well known as
; Pears' Soap. For polished or
covered floors there is nothing
more effective and nothing
I easier to handle than one of
j these sweepers. We have a
few and we sell them cheap.
1 If your mangoes are ripen
ing you will want a fruit
picker because it saves your
mangoes from being mashed
when they fall to the ground.
If you sell your fruit you will
I save ten times the price of a
picker the first season you use
it. Four, bits if you don't
want a handle; six, if you do.
One of the new lot of Car
riage Whips we have just re
ceived will suit you unless you
require to have it gold mounted,
in that case it will be done for
tyou at the Coast. Ours are really !
good ones for the money; you
can get one pure whale bone
or imitation as you wish.
The Pasteur Filter seems to
be a good one, judging from
the quantity of dirt that col
, lects on the cylinders as the
water is filtered. We rent them
at a dollar a month or sell them
! at a fixed price try one of '
them for a month or so and if
you like it well enough, buy it.
. You will never havea loaf '
' of heavy bread in your house
if you cut it with a Gauss
Knife. For real genuine use-1
fulness nothing can compare
with it. Just fancy 1 Fori
a dollar we give you a knife
that will cut warm bread, an- j
other that will cut iced cake 1
and still another that pares ap
ples or potatoes with the least
I proportion of loss of material.
Haviland China leads all
others and we have the stock
from which you may draw
from. Our assortment is made
up off all sorts of the very best
and we have arranged the price
to suit your purpose.
