It is to be regretted that Hono
lulu's amateur histrionic talent is
not so ofton in evidence ns its
musical talont. There is doubt
less just as abundant a supply of
the former as the latter. Prob
ably tho chief reason for the dis
parity in degree of development is
in the fact that, while there is al
ways locally present a profession

the art, as well as to assist in pub

cle of professional Thespians
here to do oither for the drama.

Stltittloii Army Trouble
The New York Press on Jan. lo
said: Salvation Army mon and
lassies received a violent shock
when it was rumored that an or
der had como from General Booth
in London to tho effect that his
son and dnughtor-iu-law, Com
mander and Mrs. Ballington
Booth, must relinquish thoir Am
erican leadership at tho end of
March. It is supposed that tho
sore point with tho London au
thorities has been tho strenuous
efforts made by tho loaders to Am
ericanize the movomont. Tho
commander and his wife recently
became American citizens, and
havo now a largo proportion of
Americans in tho ranks of thoir
paid ofiicors. Tho removal of tho
two popular leaders, will, it is
feared, cause a largo withdrawal
of financial help. Commander
Booth rofusos to say bother such
an order has boon received. His
friends say that if tho decroo
comes, ho may resist. Nearly all
tho property, including tho head
quarters building in Fourteenth
Street, is in his absolute posses

PRES1DENT OF VENEZU-
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 ouf 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
frjend Grover Cleveland. We

boforo tho time of tho rendezvous.
Until that day tho Gorman press
had iiot made much notice of the
British warlike preparations, con
sidering thorn as a political and
precautionary rather than a war
Tho nows of tho formation of a
second lleot, however, caused con
sidornblo comment in Berlin.
Some significance was attached to
tho largo number of torpedo-boat
catchers, as tho only point of
superiority of tho Gorman navy
over tho British is in tho number
of torpedo boats.
Workmen in tho dockyards toil
ed nt night by electric light. Tho
Government ordered tho stores of
smnll cartridges increased from
15,000,000 to lfi0,00p,000. Tho
wagos account nlono increased by
S-JOO.O0O. To meet tho increased
expenditure a bill v,an to bo pre
sented, immediately on the open
ing of Parliament, to devote the
estimated surplus of several mil
lion pounds to naval expenses.
About this time a cbango to a
moro poacoablo tono was remark
ed in tho Gorman press. Great
importance ins attached to an
article in tho Hamburger Na
chrichton, which is said to have
boon directly inspired by Prince
Bismarck, which dircctlj' disap
proves of tho Government's atti
tude and adds: "Tho duty of tho
Government is moro to defend tho
internal and external peace of the
country ngninstdisturbanccs, than
to promoto foreign enterprises."
Tho London Timos on tho 11th
Baid, with regard to Germany's at
titude: "If ull of tho outcry is
inenningless, wo are well content
to have boon roundly abused. Tho

ject lesson, showing thnt England

Tho Daily Telegraph of tho
samo dato had a dispatch from
Borlin which said: "On "Wednes
day, a special messenger brought
nn autograph letter from tho
Queen to tho Emperor, whose re
ply is by now in tho Queon's hands.
Tho Emperor remarked to his en
tourage that he replied in a man
ner which ho boliovod would prove
acceptable to tho Queen. It is be
lieved that in brief, graceful terms
tho Emporor confirms tho assur
ance already given by his respon
sible ministers that ho had no in
tention of casting a slur upon

says n London dispatch, of tho
lilth. Tho Emperor William threw
town tho gauntlet, it was prompt
ly picked up and enorgetic steps
immediately taken by the British
Government to bnck up action by
a most imposing display of sea
power. It is added that the events
of tho week had crowded tho
Venezuela incident nlmost out of
"Tho gravity of tho situation
may bo estimated from tho fact
that it is assorted that novor bo
foro in the history of the nations
has thero been witnessed so

ngninst Germany or against the

is composed exclusively of tho
very fastest and newest of tho
British warships nfloat and will
bo ready for sea on 'JJuesdny next.
Tho report that lottors had pass
ed botweon Emporor "William and
Queen Victoria is confirmed in
Berlin. It is claimed that tho cor
respondence was not altogether
conciliatory, tho Emporor having
made the statement that, while not
intending to offend England in
nuy wny, ho is still of the opinion
that Dr. Jameson's raid was crim
inal and worthy of condemnation.
t An offioial of tho Gorman For
eign Office said: "No serious trou
ble is expected. The main quar
rel is ono picked by the British
press and not by tlm British Gov
ernment. Germany insists simply
on 'the status quo, which will suf

Thp London" Timos of tho 13th
says it can only truly bo snid that
irnmedinto dangor has been avort
ed, but nil tho evils and terrors
which mode tho disturbance in tho
Transvaal, with or without Drv
Jameson, still remain unsettled.
Ou the other hand, tho Stand
ant, the mouthpiece of tho Con
servatives, and vory closo to the
r'r",ornmont, says: ""Wo are en
ahled to state that President Kruo
gr lias not demanded any change
m tlio treaty stipulations," etc.,
and Jator on says: 'Wo are au
thorised to declare the Emperor's
telegram to President Kruegor
was at most, an expression of feel
ing of momentary irritation which
is now pnst, leaving the relations
botween Germany and England as
friendly as heretofore."
Tho Pall Mall Gazette invokes
the gratitude of Groat Britain to
Emporor "William "for arousing
the patriotism of the country, thus
loading to a better understanding
wilh tho United States."
Tlio "Westminster Gazette Ire
peats the assertion, that thoro has
boon an understanding arrived at
between Groat Britain and Franco,
and points to tho sottlomont of tho
Mekong dispute as being tho first
fruit of this entente.
The Globo says it thinks tho
pacific completion of the Venezu
ela question will be due to tho
Emporor 'William, ndding: "Tho
moment the German sword rattled,
Brother Jonathan censed to fingor
his revolver. Secretary Olnoy's
nppeal regarding the Transvaal,
coming from tho author of tho en
lagemont of tho Monroe doctrine,
is an olivo branch, nor has reci
procity in friendship beon lacking
on our side."
Tho latter reference is to n re
quest made by tlio United States
Govornmont, that Groat Britain
should watch tho interests of Am
erican citizons in tho Transvaal.
