FRIDAY, MAY 17, 1895.
Tho handful of veterans of the
American civil war residing in
Honolulu will eclobrato Memorial
Day as it has been hero, and in tho
United States, for years past.
While Honolulu claims to be thor
oughly American in many respects
it is surprising that tho day is not
more generally observed. At this
season of tho year business is not
bo thriving that employers could
not well afford to close their stores
and give tho clerks a full holiday.
Notwithstanding tho reports
that harmony reigns supremo at
the meetings of tho various squads
of tho Citizens' Guard, in which
tho military Bchcmo is discucscd,
thero is a general feeling of dissatis
faction among tho members at tho
prospect of a change.
This organization is largely made
up of business men and clerks who,
for tho protection of their homes
and families, offered their services
to the government in the belief, of
course, that they would bo assign
ed to duty ne.ir their homes and at
times when troublo was threatened
tho government by its enrmies.
When tho danger is past tho mom
bers wihh to bo freo from any kind
of discipline until again called up
on to protect lives and property.
Witli a majority of tho guards it is
their simple wish to bo allowed to
act as special policemen and for
that purpose tho body sprung into
existence. Tho men have no wish
to don uniforms nor to bo obliged
to lepoit for drill whenever it is
tho with of the commanding officer
to have them. They fail to see the
necessity for all of this and arguo
that if they wish to become experts
at drilling, or if thoy are not parti
cular as to tho locality they aie to
piotcct they might as well join the
national :aard and bo done with it.
tho ordinary on tho other days,
for the purpose of .disposing of his
ware. Tim laws governing tho
conduct of tin1 auction business on
the idntuN were made, evidently,
to piOteet tin- men who carry on
what they call legitimate business,
and tlm liceiibo fee was set at a
high figure because it is pretty
generally believed that tho auction
sales injure to a certain extent the
regular business of a place as small
as Honolulu. But is it just to have
it a caso of "I'll tickle you, but
keep your hands off me."
According to tho law, an auction
eer pays a license of $500 per an
num to carry on his trado in
Honolulu. In addition to this, ho
pays ono half of one percent on
tho amount of f-iijes during the
year. Wholesale houses, and retail
we bolievc, pay according to the
value of sales during tho same
period, the smaller tho sales tho
smaller the liceii6o fee.
We may suppose that a firm docs
a business which would call for a
licenso fee of $250. Sometimes tho
proprietor finds himself confronted
by a largo assortment of goods that
are so far in tho rear in the matter
of stylo that ho considers it neces
sary to dispose of them in the
quickest, and boHt manner. Tho
idea of an auction strikes him
favorably and ho mounts a clerk
on a stool and provides him with a
hammer and a loud voice. The
goods bring better prices, as a rulo,
than if sold over the counter and
tho proprietor retires to his homo
at tho close of tho day conscious of
having had good returns without

Wanted A Happy Mam.
Au Eastern cpologuo relates that
a great king was sick, and that his
physicians declared that nothing
could euro him but the shirt of a
perfectly happy man. Messengers
were sent through the land to find
this rarity, and when a likely per
son was discovered the envoys ask
ed him if ho wanted anything. Tho
answer was "Yes;" tho "happy
man" wanted something another
field, a little more wealth, another
a son mure was always some aeu
ciency that showed tho imperfec
tion of the happiness. At length
tho ooarchers came to the verge of
a wood and found a man dancing.
He seemed poor but merry. Ques
tioned closely, he would not admit
that ho wanted anything; he had
quite enough, and was very jolly.
"Then," said tho messengers, "give
us your shirt to heal tho king."
Tho merry dancer rejoined: "I
havo no shirt." Tho king died,
and tho problem of how to euro
tho king remained unsolved. To
day thero are thousands who, like
this king, through sickness, aro not
happy, and there aro a countless
number who havo become happy
by removing their sickness through
the timely use of tho world-famed
