In tbo speech from tho throno
opening tho Dominion Parliament
Lord Abordeon, tho Governor
Genoral, rcforred with gratifica
tion to tho aid promised by tho Im
perial Government to tho fast At
lantic sorvico in connection with
the Bchemo for improving com
munications by land and sea bo
tween the Mother Country and
tho Australasian Colonies by way
of Canada, llo added: "My Gov
ernment havo also learned with
satisfaction that it is tho intoution
of tho Secretary of Stato for tho
Colonies to appoint a committee
to consider a proposed Pacific
cnblo to connect Canada with Aus
tralia." This, with all tho prom
ises wo havo from Sir Audloy
Coote, Mr. Spalding and United
States public men regarding
a cable from tho United States
Coast to Japan via Hawaii, in
creases the chances foreshadowed
in this paper somo time ago of
two Pacific cablos. If the British
cable owners bo allowed to give
Hawaii a link from Panning Isl
and, and bo roady to do so, this
country would then havo commu
nication with both America and
Australasia, and, perhaps, advan
tages of competition in tho formor
case. It is to bo feared, however,
that if tho United States grant aid
to the America-Hawaii cable, sho
will rofuso consent to having oven
a branch connection hero with tho
British cable This would bo a
dog-in-the-manger policy indeed,
as tho United States pooplo would
havo tho full advantage of commu
nication with Australia by tho
British cable. But with tho Vene
zuela inoidont fresh in view, if
not unhappily aggravated by
that time, tho opportunity would
be a dangerous one for Ame
rican politicians eager to make
capital out of tho popular
passions of tho hour. There is
nnother olomont of doubt in tho
early prospect of Hawaii's getting
a cable at all, and that is tho pos
sible effect upon American capital,
otherwise forthcoming readily for
the cablo, of tho now apparently
probable forohandedness of the
British cablo promoters in getting
tho entire through business be
tween all America and Australia,
besides perhaps a considerable
share of all round tho world traffic
even in competition with a lino to
Japan. These considerations
would undoubtedly enter into tho
calculations of private American
capitalists, although they might,
on the other hand, stimulate tho
United States Congress to speedi
ly lay a cablo as a national under
taking. In tho latter case Mr.
Spalding's exclusive right from
the Hawaiian Legislature to land
a cable on Hawaii from tho North
American const would not bo
worth tho paper on which it is in
There is great need of a stone

Judgo Morrow's dooision at
San Pranciscoo,olsowhoro roportedt
if it stand, as is likoly to bo tho
case, establishes the right of Amo-rican-born
Chinoso to Amorican
citizenship. This construction of
tho United States constitution
gives that document tho breadth of
tho letter of tho Hawaiian
constitution, tho latter say
ing, "All persons born or
naturalized in tho Hawaiian
Islands, and subject to tho juris
diction of the Republic, aro
oitizunB thereof." It means a
great deal more in the United
States, however, because thoro
malo citizens havo tho right to
voto in national elections. Hero
the voter must bo able to speak,
read and write English or Hawai
ian, and in the case of tho Sonato
conform to a stiff property quali
fication. An alien Chinaman can
not bo naturalized undor tho
Hawaiian constitution, because
his country has no naturalization
treaty with this Republic.
"Broomieburn" is the namo of
a Scottish border story of forty
years ago, for the favor of perus
ing which Mr. Hutton (formerly
of the Honolulu Iron Works oflico
and now living at Laupahoehoo)
has the thanks of tho Bulletin. Its
author is John Cunningham and
tho publishers aro A. B. limes it
Co., Bedford streot, London.
Although written largely in local
dialect, tho English reader can
easily follow the humor and the
pathos, both of which it possesses
in a degree that makes it compare
favorably with Stevonson's on
gaging creations. The author
states his motive to be tho prosor
vation of tbo memory of the sim
ple but joyous life and language
of tho small farmers and shepherds
of tho time and place treated.
Railways aud other condi
tions of advancing civiliza
tion havo now all but obliterated
the old customs, and dialects aro
almost completely lost in tho all
absorbing Queou's English. Hence
this attempt to prosorvo relics of a
period that, with all its hardships,
had much to do with forming tho
best surviving traits of Scottish
character. Thoro is a description
of tho death of a gipsy girl, on the
clean bed of a benevolent Scottish
gudewifo, which can hardly bo sur
passed by any passage in classic
drama for pathos, while it convoys
a losson in truo religion as impres
sivo as was over uttered from a pul
pit. Incidents of chaffering ovor
bargains at fairs, Scottish court
ships and weddings with real fid
dlers, not violinists, playing for
"hoolicans," etc. wrestling bouts
and doctrinal wrangling, make the
book highly interesting. Tho
book is easily read in an ovoning,
and it contains a glossary to ox
plain tho dialect.
"It is a noticeable fact that tho
Chinoso in tho United States do
not assimilate with tho whites as
is tho case in this country," says
tho Advertiser. It is news to hear
that the Chinese assimilate with
the whites in this country.

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 ery
abstemious in his habit and
generally goes to bed at 8
o'clock in the evening. He is
in the habit of summoning his
Ainisters 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
