It is not only among the op
ponents of tho administration hero
but with supporters that a doubt re
garding tho calling of a session of
the Legislature was felt. Notwith
standing frequent flat denials, tho
rumor still exists to tho effect that
the Government itself is lukewarm
in tho matter of annexation to tho
United States. As each individual
member of the Legislature was
nominated only after having pledg
ed himself to support -such a
measure, it might bo ombarrastfng
to the Government to find itself
forced to accept the opposite of
what it domed.

A Fow Facts Worth Knowing
It is a fact woll known to medical
men aud to thoeo acquainted with
tho nature and cause of rheumatio
pains that they cannot be cured by
any outward application. It is a
fact that there are several widely
advertised liniments and embroca
tions which givo a certain amount
of relief of a more or less temporary
nature. It is a fact that "Sequah's
Oil" is tho vory best of all theso
applications, aud gives greater relief
than any of them. It acts promptly,
effectually, and always gives satisfac
tion. It is, however, a most import
ant fact that rheumatism in auy of
its forms depends on the acid state of
the blood, and that this acidity of
the blood must bo removed before a
satisfactory cure cau be effected.
It is a fact worth remembering that
"Soquah's Cure" will always romovo
this acidity, and will thorofore al
ways cure. Remember that "Se
quah's Cure" aud "Sequah's Oil"
will always givo not only tomporary
relief, but a suro aud pcrmauout
ouro, You will do well to soe and
hear Sequah whilst ho is amongst
you. Sequah speaks each evening
on his Chariot iu tho Union Square
at 7-130, with the Hawaiian band in
attendance. Sequah also attends
the Armory Hall in Beretania street
overy aftornoon between tho hours
of 2 and 4:30 for tho reception of
porsons wishing to purchase tho
remedies or undergo the treatment.
Living Stones of Falkland.
The most curious specimens of
vegetable or plaut life in existenco
aro the so-called "living stones" of
the Falkland Islands. Those islands
are among tho most cheerless spots
in the world, being constantly sub
jected to a strong polar wind. Iu
such a olimato it is impossible for
trees to grow erect, as they do in
othor countries, but uature has
made amends by furnishing a supply
of wood in tho most curious shape
imaginable, says tho St. Louis Re
public. The visitor to tho Falkland
sees, scattored hero and there,
singular-shaped blocks of what ap
pears to bo weather-beaten aud
moss-covered boulders in various
sizes. Attempt to turn one of these
"boulders" ovor and you will meet
with a surpriso, bocauso tho sup
posed stone is actually anchorod by
roots of groat strength; in fact, you
will find that you aro fooling with
one of tho native trees. No othor
country in the world has such a
peculiar "forest" growth, aud it is
said to be uext to impossible to
work tho odd-shaped blocks into
fuel, because it is perfectly devoid of
"grain," and appears to bo nothing
but a twisted mass of woody fibers.

Tho Government bsud is playing
on the Quoou's Hospital grounds
(May 7, 1895.
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. It is called the A. B. C,
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. Mr. 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. Ars. 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 styleof 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 latest novelty in 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 an cigars that cost
$150.00 per thousand. The outside appear
ance of the cigar conforms to the filler, and is
perfectly flat. Those of our cigar customers
who have sampled them pronounce the 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
wana. While the quality of these cigars is at
the 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 difficult to get a better cigar for the piice
at which Manilas are sold. "We allow no one
to undersell us in this line. We compete with
any nationality. Remember that when look
ing for Manila Cigars.
