that Shearman, Dr. Hyde aud the

THE REVENUE CUTTER.
The necessity of a swift, light
draft and well-armed revenue cutter
has uever been so well demonstrated
as iu tho past week. At prosout
thore is really but one vessel at the
immediate servico of tho Hawaiian
Government aud that is tho tug
Elou. A good idea of the value
of this vessel to the government
may be cstimatod from her recent
trip in search of "opium smugglers'"
After two day's steaming she return
ed to port completely used up and
is now undergoing a thorough over
hauling as well as having her boilers
renovated aud cleansed.
During tho absence of the Elou a
vessel was outside tho harbor wait
ing for a tug to bring it to tho wharf
and was forcod to stand off and on
all day. It is neither fair nor right
to the captains of merchant vessels
for tho govorumeut to use tho only
tug iu port for two or three days at
a time aud posiibly leave thorn at
tho moroy of the dangerous reefs and
shoals which surround this coast.
Tho one and only .remedy is for
tho government to purchase a light
and swift steamer, which can be in
readiness for any purpose at a mo
ments notice, even for chasing opium
smugglers, filibusters or phantom

From a more thorough examina
tion of tho accounts of the lato big
fire iu Apia, as published iu the Sa
inoau papers, it would appear that
although all hands were on divk, to
use a familiar expression, they wore
iu a disgraceful state of intoxication
from the chief of polio" of Apia to
tho cabin boy of H. M. S. Wallaroo.
Although the fire had been iu pro
gress for hours Captain Grahame
of the Wallaroo did not laud his
mariuei until it was nearly extin
guished. A conflict of authority im
mediately ensued between the British
captain aud the chief of polico of j
Apia, during which opprobrious
epithets of all kinds woro bandied to
and fro between tho principals.
From tho published accounts it
would appear that tho affair was a ,
disgrace to overy one concerned iu i
it, and especially to the captain of
Her Britaunic Majesty's ship Walla-1
roo, which sailed for Now Zealand
the following day and is now, like au
ostrich, tryiug to buiy in tho snud,
the disgrace its captain has brought

The same old cry of "No
Water" is again heard in tone
of voice as loud and as tierce
as ever. But with the new
pumping station almost com
pleted the complaints against
the Water Works Department
will soon be a thing in forgot
ten history. It looks just now
as though the government is
doing everything in its power
to alleviate the misery and re
duce the annoyance which na
turally ensues through lack of
sufficient water witlf which to
make a cocktail.
1 Iere are some tigures over
which you may ponder if you
are interested in wire fences:
The European wire which we
carry in stock has been tested
at the Iron Works and shows a
tensile strength of 2760 pounds.
The galvanizing passed through
all the tests it is possible to put
it and shows that it is as near
perfect as it is possible to make
it. The American wire we re
ceived a week or more ago,
(and it is the best to be ob
tained in the States), was tested
at the Iron Works and shows
a tensile strength of about 700
pounds. These figures show
which is the best wire, and
which you should use in build
ing the Jones Locked Fence
the best fence in the world.
The growing desire on the
part of trie people to save mo
ney accounts in a measure for
the demand that has been made
upon us for the Dietz Oil Stove.
The people who have been us
ing them here during the past
six months are so well pleased
with them that they recom
mend them to their friends.
The fact that they cannot ex
plode is a point in their favor;
economy of fuel is another,
and the wish of people to have
a stove they can cook with
and not get "all bet up" is an
other, bvery one who uses a
Dietz Stove will tell you that
it is the best they ever had.
The time is here and house
owners should begin painting
up their dwellings. In the se
lection of material the fact that
Hendry's Ready Mixed is bet
ter than any other should be
considered. This mixture is
made of pure white lead and
oxide of zinc and the best qua
lity of colors obtainable. The
paints are made especially for
us and are guaranteed to be
first-class in every respect.
They are good spreaders and
retain their glossy appearance
longer than any mixed paint
solq elsewhere or even that
which is mixed to order. We
have them in quarts, half gal
lon and gallon containers and
in all the shades desirable for
either inside or outside work.
In localities where water is
necessary for either irrigation
or household purposes and
where nature has left an ach
ing void by its absence, or at
least where the fluid is so far
below the surface as to be in
visible, we would suggest the
digging of surface or artesian
wells and to the owners or
lessees of the land that they
erect Aermotors. If we could
write up the profits which
have accrued among people on
these Islands who use Aermo
tors it would surprise some
folks who don't use them.

is tho latest novelty in cigars. This is a per
fectly Hat cigar. The filler is Havana of a
very high gradt and laid in, like the sheets of
a book, in the same way an cigars that cost
$150.00 per thousand. The outside appear
ance of the cigar conforms to the filler, and is
perfectly Hat. Those of our cigar customers
who have sampled them pronounce tho Ha
vana Flats of excellent quality and of unique
and attractive shape.
by reason of their superior quality and name
are unuaHy sold at high prices. "We have an
excellent line of theso cigars direct from Ha
vana. While the quality of theso cigars w at
tho top-notch our prices have been scaled down
to bring these popular cigars within the reach
of all. '
need very little said in their praise, for they arc
well known here to overy smoker. It would
be diilicult to get a better cigar for tho price
at which Manilas arc sold. "We allow no one
to undersell us in this line. "We compete with
any nationality. Remember that when look
ing for Manila Cigars.
