Whoro aro wo alT
consolation in tlio fact Hint an en
tirely JifTerent state of affairs pre
vails on the Philadelphia, on which
ship such a cordial feeling exists be
tweon officers and niou that, were it
universally known, would creato
envy on every warship in tho world.
Ask one of the Philadelphia's crew
his opinion of his officers and he
will answer immediately, "Wo can
not aik for better. Wo are well
I treated, not worked hard and get all
the liberty we want if we behave
I ourselves." Ask tho officers their
I opinion of the crew and they will
' answer, "Wo do not want a bettor
net of men. All h Ask of them is
to do their duty. Having done this
we know of no reason why their
lives should not be made as pU asaut
as possible." With this spirit pre
vailing between officers and men is
1 it any wonder that bluejackets claim
1 the Philadelphia tn be the finest
ship in Unele Sam's navy J
Wo have heard of a coucliunt lion
but until to-day did not know there
was such an architectural curiosity
as a "triumphant arch."
It is customary in civilized com
munities to afford journalistic courtc
sies from one member of this pro
fession to another, lias this beeii
done in Honolulu T
The Snu Erancisco Bullotiu states
the case in a nutshell when it says:
"an American fleet is expected to
arrive at Coriuto shortly. The Brit
ish fleet arrived some 'days ago."
The moruing papers were ex
troniely dull to-day. Thro was not
half adozeu items, local or forelgu,in
oillior of them which did not appear
in yestorday'scBuLLETiN. Get a move
on, boyti, or you will not be in it
with thia paper.
It is somewhat amusing to have
a contemporary claim all tho credit
of raising the funds for the pur
chase of the new instruments for
tho band at Molokai. While our
noighbor can have the credit of in
augurating the idea wo prefer to
give Captain Cochrane the credit of
gotting the money.
Wo believe in devoting our editor
ial column or columns to local affairs
as much as possible, but cannot re
frain from mentioning that it must
be apparent to an ordiuary school
boy that Oroat Britain is backing
Japan, Why she has thrown off on
her ancieut and subservient, ally,
China, is either a question of dollars
and cents or one that may be refer
red to Lord Kimborloy.
ANOTHER ONE GONE
Edward S Coflln Has Joint d
Or i-at Majority.
Another old kamaaina has gono to
his rest. Edward S. Coffin died at
the Queen's Hospital early this
morning Ho went thero only last
weok, suffering from paralysis. The
deceased was a native of Kan
tucket, Mas. Ho came hero from
the California gold fields in 1350,
and shortly afterwards entered tho
employ of tho late Qeorgo Lucas
aud stayed with tho firm until ho
retired from activo work about
threo years ago. He was regarded
by his omployers and fellow work
man as a straightforward, honest,
industrious mechanic. He was also
considered to bo the best fratuer
whoever came to this city. George
W. Lincoln and all the old-timers
know the deceased well and speak
highly of him.
E. S. Cofllu was sixty-six years
of ago on November 1, 1891. He
was married to an Hawaiian lady
who died sometime siuco. He
leaves a brother who in in the East
ern States. Coffin left S2000 in cash
in the Postal Savings bank. It is
not believed that ho made any will.
His funeral takes place from the
Queen's Hospital at 1 o'clock this
afternoon aud will uo doubt be
The Amorlcan Vico-Consul.
It affords tho Bulletin satisfac
tion to bo able to auuouuco that
vice-consul Porter Boyd of tho Am
erican couRtilnto will remain with us
for a time at least. Having recontly
married a Honolulu girl and from
his long residence here he has natur
ally become attached to Hawaiian
soil. Although just appointed to a
more important aud lucrative office
in Australia he has applied to the
United States Foreign Office for
permission to retain his presout
position. That this has boon grant
ed in evidence that Mr. Boyd's ser
vices in the consulate are appreciated
at home as woll as abroad.
Tho reported discovery in tho In
terior Office of the applications of
T. B. Walker and W. H. Rickard to
become Hawaiian citizens does not,
an stated by one of our morning
contemporaries, put any now light
on tho affair. Even the editor of
tho said publication might apply for
a position as a common every-day
reporter, but wholhor he would get
it or not is another thing. The
question, aud the only question in
volved is, not whether Rickard and
Walker appliod for naturalization,
but whothor they got it. That is
tho riddle which Great Britain is
now domanding Hawaii to solvo.
A sailor on tho British ship Troop
was badly burnod on both legs by
burning oil this morning. Tho man
was ongaged in mixing paint on the
wharf wheu ho came too near the
embors of a furuaco causing tho oil
to ignite. Tho man throw himself
aud oil into the sea, not quick
enough, however, to savo himself
from serious injuries, Tho sailor
was taken on board aud properly
There is much trouble on tho now
United States warship Olympia, and
desertions are so frequent and the
impossibility of obtaiuing now men
so evident that under preeout condi
tions it is hardly safo to send tho
vessel to sea, not oven in tho placid
waters of tho Pacific. Tho men
complain of arbitrary aud cruel
treatment from their officers, aud
published accounts would seem to
boar out their grievances. Life on
board ship is hard enough at best,
but when it is embittered by por
Houal ill-feeling aud petty bickerings
between officers and crew it must
bo worse than miserable. There is

Yesterday witnessed one of
the quietest elections ever held
in Honolulu or elsewhere. It
was a good deal like some of
the elections in the South
American republics where you
always vote the government
ticket or stay away from the
polls. Although only 111
votes were cast, that number
was even larger than was ex
pected. Talking about the election,
however, reminds us that we
have just received a novelty in
the shape of a newly invented
can opener, which is simplicity
itself. If is called the A. B. G,
and we are the only firm hand
ling them. This can opener is
different to any other in use.
It takes the entire top of the
can off with a single turn of
the wrist. All you have to do
is to lay the machine on the
top of the can, strike a little
wooden knob similar to those
used in opening soda-water
bottles and the can opener does
the rest. There is no possibil
ity of injuring the hands or
losing your temper.
Did we hear anyone call out
"rats?" We thought we did,
and that brings to our mind
another novelty in the shape of
a French rat trap. This is a
family concern and will accom
modate whole families of these
pestiferous rodents. Ar. Rat
walks into the trap until he
reaches a little platform which
gives way under his weight
and he is caught before he
knows where he is, being
landed in an entirely different
compartment to that which he
first entered. Atrs. Rat follows
to see what the old man was
doing out so late at night and
soon joins him. We have
caught ten rats in one night in
one of these traps. They must
be seen to be appreciated.
This warm weather makes
one think of ice-cream and
an ice-cream freezer that
will suit a small family is
a desideratum. We have just
imported a new style of freezer
which cannot fail to commend
itself by its usefulness. It is
provided with a heavy cap
which fits tightly over the re
ceptacle holding the cream,
and is so constructed as to re
quire less ice, less salt and less
time in freezing. If you want
one of these ask for the Gem.
It is a gem and we guarantee

:m:. s. levy,
is tho latent novelty iu cigars. This is a per
fectly Hat cigar. The filler is Havana of a
very high grade and laid in, like the sheets of
a book, in the same way as 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 usually sold at high prices. "We have an
excellent line of these cigars direct from Ha
vana. While the quality of these cigars ia at
tho top-notch our prices have been scaled down
to bring these popular cigars within the reach
need very little said in their praise, for they aro
well known here to every smoker. It would
be difiicult to get a better cigar for the price
at which Manilas are sold. "Wo allow no one
to undersell us in this line. Wo compete with
any nationality. Remember that when look
