rating foreman notified tho
'.Snsiness department of tho
ITESINO Bulletin that tho 120
isolurons necessary to fill the pa
er was sot and tho machiuo men
lad ceased tlioir labors. Tho
aexl night tho startling (to us)
fafoimntion was had that fifteen
ijolumns moro copy would be re
quired. As the time was too
3iort to enable us to socuro mat
tor wo were forced to follow the
iotstops of older journals and
oopy from standard and daily pu
yrs. There is on file in this of
.ice the copy nut from Thrum's
.Annual with the proper credit at
ise foot of tho pogo. Tho credit
as sot up by tho oppratnr and
saad by the proof reader. Thoro
vs no intention on our part to
dtaim originality, nor was thoro a
ijtaire to deprive the author of

A most ingonious machiuo has
just b on pi tooted in tho United
St.itos which will obviato tho
necessity of Liking a letter to tho
postoflice to obtain registry and a
receipt therefor from the post
master, a process which causes
loss of ti mo and often inconveni
ence both to tho official and the
applicant. This is rendered un
necessary by this ingenious coin
controlled machine, which is also
applicable to other purposes. It
has a locked registry-table and
letter-receiving box, to be un
locked by a coin dropped in a
slot, which sets in motion me
chanism for weighing and num
bering tho letter or pickago. for
dropping it into the letter-box,
and also for dating, numboiing,
aud delivoriug a receipt therefor.
A duplicate registry, accersiblo
only to the postoflice officials, is
at tho same timo made upon a
pnpor band within the raachino,
this band being formed into a
book, and the machino having
devices by which it becomes in
operative when the supply of re
cord paper is exhausted. The
mechanism for controlling the
diiioront movements oporutes so
that they must occur iu regular
sequence. By this moans it is
rendered possible to registor a
letter almost as conveniently as
one now dropn it into a letter
box, this machine being providod
at suitable places, as in leading
hotels, lurge offices, oto.

PRESIDENT 'OF VENEZU
ELA AND OTHER
President Crespo of Venez
uela is a tall, heavy man, with
a countenance revealing force
and determination. He is eiy
abstemious in his habit and
generally goes to bed at 8
o'clock in the evening. He is
in the habit of summoning his
Ministers to him at sunrise.
He is fond of cattle-ranching,
and owns a large number of
acres not far from the Venezu
elan capital. He is a fine eques
trian and has an unlimited
amount of backbone. He also
knows a good thing when a
friend puts him on to it. If he
lived in Honolulu he would be
one of the first to call at the
store of the Hawaiian Hard
ware Company and examine
some of that fine cutlery just
received by the last Australia.
Beyond question we have now
displayed on our shelves and
in our windows and showcases
the finest lot of cutlery ever
brought to these Islands.
One of those fine carving
sets with ivory or buckhorn
handles in handsome plush
cases would be just the thing
to take the fancy of President
Crespo or his great and good
friend Grover Cleveland. We
have also smaller sets of carv
ers, designed for game and

Board of Education revoking the
permission to teach religion in
tho sohoolhousos after school
hours appears to Catholics to bo a
blow aimed at thorn rathor than a
inonHiire designed to seouro to
everybody his rights recorodd in
tho Constitution. Tho uso of
that permission was only to
prevent our public schools from
boing ontiroly godless, as thoy
promise to become if tho resolu
tion be enforcod.
Monarchical Prussia, a Protest
ant country, prov ds that reli
gious instruction bo given to her
children in hor schoolhouses ac
cording to their respeotivo re
ligious beliefs. Protestantand mo
narchical Englacd also gives full
liberty to her pooplo fc instruct
their children in their tohgiou;

opposite cumo and will havo no
loligiouB instruction in hcrsuhcol-
Inumos. JJut Catholics contri
buted to the building of these
Huhnulhouses and tho cannot con
sider it right nr just that thoir
children should bo deprived of
what they boliovo to be of fur
greater importance than all other
branches of education, and neces
sary to make them honest and
good men aud womou C.itholics
cannot agree that "thoevidont in
tention" of the provisions of tho
existing Constitution is that thero
shall bo no religions teaching in
tho public school. Thoy cl.iim
that tho Constitution iutouds just
exactly what it deeluvs, neither
moro nor less, aud thoy bolievo
its provisions to bo fair and just
to all. If any mimstor of religion
were oligiblo to fill tho office of
President of the Board of Educa
tion or of Inspector General, and
woro appointed to either oflico, so
weak is poor human uaturo,thnugh
in othor respects perfectly honest,
ho might porvort tho nxorciso of
his oilico for the bonefit of his
own particular sect or denomin
ation tothodetrimont of all othors,
so with tho appropriation of any
public money or land for tho sup
port or bonefit of any sectarian or
denominational school; but where
tho samo right or privilogo is
opsn to all alike without distinc
tion who choonu to avail themselves
of it, no wrong can be done to
anyone, and no provision of the
Constitution infringed by its en
joyment by all.
Comploto oducation does not
consist of tho knowledge of scien
tific facts only. A learned is not
always an oducatod or worthy
man. A child to becomo a worthy
and educated man besides Booular
knowledgo hiiH to know tho reason
for his crontion; and what is nec
essary for him to attain that
knowledge is religious instruction.
Catholics therefore oonsider
that tho issue of the lato cironlqr
of tho Board of Education depriv
ing their children of the blessing
of religious instruction is a meas
ure inimical to them and anti
christian in its tenor. Thoy de
nounco it accordingly and hold
it rosponsiblo for tho ovils that
m-iy ilow from its operation.
