JAN. 21, 1896.

In advocating a pornmnont in
ternational court of arbitration,
the London Chronicle says: "Nat
urally, such a tribunal must bo
constituted subject to America's
xensounhlo views upon tho Jl on
roe doctrine." This is tho kind of
conciliatory talk that is needed
just now, when so many fools have
had their say on both sides of tho
Sir Audloy Cooto is so positive
lhat a cable will bo laid to Japan
from San Francisco via Hawaii
that ho will not admit any doubt
of the mattor. Either ho forgot
to say, or tho interviewer to ask,
how ho is going to acquire
the right to land n cablo from tho
American coast on those islands.
As that is reserved by an Act of
our Legislature to Mr. Spalding,
rather Sir Audloy is in that gen
tleman's scheme or ho is, in slang
phrase, "talking through his hat."
It- pleased tho Star, in its issuo
that disregarded tho anniversary
that gave itself birth, to describo
rs "mischievous" the Bulletin
interviews with Hawaiian royalists
or ex-royalists on tho removal of
the two Kamohamohas' coflins.
Although great trouble was takon
to obtain interviews on the other
side, still it is undoubtedly mis
chievous, from tho Star's viow
point, to givo both sides of any
question. Next time wo shall
probably ask leave of tho Star to
scoop it in news beforo commit
ting such a grave offense. By
the way, tho news-boys did a land
office business Selling the Bulle
tin on Thursday.
The San Francisco Chronicle
says: "There is little probability
of favorable action being taken on
Spaulding's joint resolution pro
posing tho annexation of Hawaii
until after tho financial and tariff
matters' are attended to. The.re
bolution will probably stay in
committee for some time, and will
bo called up when Congress hag
leisure to devote to a red-hot de
bate which tho proposition is sure
to evoke, as tho Democrats vill
oppose its passoge tooth and nail."
Onco upon a time tho Chroniclo
howled, month in and out, agaiiiBt
tho Hawaiian reciprocity, simply
because it thought tho measure
holped tho interests of Olaus
Spreckols. After the 1S93 racket
it wont crazy for annexation.
Now it throws cold water on ovory
proposition for tho political union
of Hawaii with tho great republic.
Tho Chroniclo with all its fine
merits as a newspaper is only a
rag on a .bush as a representative
of American public opinion.

Transvaal question. From an iii
torvibw with a resident of tho
country, who has lately visited
Chicago, it will bo scon that tho
original trouble in tho republic
had nothing to do with the much
cursed British territorial "rapa
city." Anioricaus, Germans and
others found tho burdens laid up
on thorn bj' tho Boers, without any
compensating rights or privileges
in return, wore too grievous to bo

ELA AND OTHER
President Crespo of Venez
uela is a tall, heavy man, with
a countenance revealing force
and determination. He is very
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

In this morning's paper men
tion is mado of tho formation of
a now company to engage in tho
coffeo business in Olaa district.
Tho articlo referred to is full of
errors which the Bulletin is ask
ed to corroct.
In tho first placo tho Olua ColTeo
Company has not disincorporated
or reorganized, as it was formed
originally under tho laws of Ha
waii. The Ohm Coffeo Company
is tho corporation in which tho
Grossman brothers, T. F. Lansing
and others aro interested and their
property is known in Olaa as tho
Grossman placo. It lias nothing
to do with tho corporation.
The company which has disin
corporated and reorganized under
tho laws of Hawaii was formerly
known as tho Kona Cofl'eo and
.Commercial Company and it
was not organized undor tho
laws of California, as stated in
tho Advortisor, but of Colorado,
where J. W. Mason, its manager,
formerly resided, and its capital
stock is mostly o-ned in that
State. Tho object of reincorporat
ing was to procure a local chartor
undor a now name, tho old ono
being somewhat misleading.
The capital stock of tho Capital
Coffeo and Commercial Company
of Olaa, tho name by which tho
company will hereafter bo known,
is 8170,000, with permission to
increase it to a quarter of a mil
lion. Tho incorporators aro
Captain Olunoy, J. W. Mason, T.
J. Higgins, D. B. Smith and H.
F. "Wicliman. T. J. Higgins is
president and treasurer and Ro
bert Catton secretary, all of above
forming tho Board of Directors.
Instead of the company owning
200 acres of land, as stated in tho
morning paper, it owns 955 acres,
of which 150 aro already planted
in coffeo and sixty more are clear
ed in readiness for planting. Tho
morning paper says: ''Under tho
now company it is. expected that
this will bo tho banner plantation
in Olaa." It will bo evidently
news to the Advertiser to learn
that tho proporty owned by this
corporation is and always lias boon
tho banner plantation in Olaa, and
that it is tho proporty originally
located and sold by Philip Peck
and now known as "Mason's
placo." It is by far tho largest
coffeo plantation in Olaa district,
besides having the most extonsivo
improvements. Tlio bulk of tho
coll'eo already planted is more
than fifty months old.
