CIVIL SERVICE REFORM.
Although tho constitution pro
vides that tho Appropriation bill
lor salaiiea and puy rolls shall bo
a pormanont law, excepting as
changes may be legislated in it
from tnno to timo, tho Oovom-
mont has room to effect a
great reform in that respect.
Always at sossions of tho
Legislature, in former times
there has been n lot of wrangling
over individual salaries. Thdrois
unfortunately to bo noted a survi
val of this ovil in tho first Legis
lature of the ltopublio. Attempts
to raise or lower salaries aro
fought to a finish, and tho sus
picion of tho man up a troo is
nnturally that, in n largo propor
tion of tho cases, legislation is
boing dono for tho man lnstoad of
for tho ofllco. "What is" needed to
correct this many-sided ovil is a
classified civil service with exami
nations to bo uudorgono by every
candidate for public olHce. This
would olTectuato at onco an
equitable apportionment of sa
laries, tho provontion of somo
of the worfet phases of
favoritism and nepotism, tho im
provement of tho public service
in ovory branch and, probably, a
material degreo of economy. Thoro
is reason to boliovo that when tho
Government sots out to formulato
such a measuro of reform, it will
bo able, if it tries hard, to discov
er means of bettor systomatising
tho work in tho executive- depart
ments, so that smaller staffs will
bo able to perform all of tho pub
lic business without any impair
ment of efficiency. i
A proposition is mooted at
"Washington to amalgamato tho
Nicaragua and the Panama canal
companies. Anotlior report is
that tho Panama company is con
sidering a now schomo, being a
waterway with six locks and n
Bummit lovol of ninety foet. For
this a new loan of 8100,000,000
wpuld bo asked. Tho plan is
rogarded as feasible, and obviating
the danger of Hoods which besots
a sea-lovol schomo. Thoro is not
a word of oncouragemont respect

waterway from tho prosent Con
gress. Hawaii cannot btako any

Somo physicians nro going to

this is thus, have discovered that

Thoro was a wedding -tin (ho
Australia this morning for which
no cards woro out. Among tho
arrivals by that kteamor on Mon-'
'.day was a colored lady who is
! known to tho Houolulu polico as
Vina King, and regarded by thorn
us a vory undesirable acquisition
to Honolulu society. Vina has
beon hero boforo and previously
to leaving spout quite a timo as
tho star boardor of Jailor Low's
hotel on tho roof, whithor she was
sent for attempting to carvp up a
iiialo friond wilh a hntchot. After
sowing out hor timo she loft for
tho Coast, but like a good many
! other pooplo has since found that
life nwity trom Honolulu is not
worth tho living.
Upon hor arrival hero on Mou
day she was refused a landing by
I Marshal lirown under tho Dan
gerous Persons Act and was con
sequently 111 a groat puikia. oho
found one friend in hor trouble,
howovor, in tho person of Thomas
Dorroll, also a geutloman of color,
and betweon thorn thoy expect to
outwit tho Marshal.
The first move in that direction
was to get married, llev. Mr. 1
Waiamau was called in and this
morning ho tied tho nuptial knot
on board tho steamer in tho pro
sonco of Port Surveyor Sanders
and other wharf and steamer offi
cials. After ascertaining tho fact of
tho nmrriago Marshal Brown in
terposed no further objection to
Mrs. Dorrell's landing and she is
now enjoying hor hitest honoy
moon. Tho lady also had trouble in
San Francisco in getting on board
tho steamer. Her record was
kuown at tho office of Clans
Spreckols & Co., and sho was ro
fuscd a tickot, but upon roprosont
iug herself to bo a nativo Hawai

STRANGE that wo should

partinont so much, when al
ready every ono in tho islands
knows that WE ARE THE
PEOPLE for fine watch
work. But tho point is just
this: Our perfect work is so
appreciated, that we find our
present facilities are just a lit
tle too small to handlo the

patch; so we aro going to en
large the department, mid
WANT YOUR WORK also.

and tho only one wo use. If
you could only realize how
much worry we can pave you
by bringing your timepiece to
us in duo insc pmce, rou would
not hesitate an instant, when
things have gone wrong, but
bring your watch to us at onco.
Complicated work is our spe
cial delight. Tho watch has
not yet been made, which wo
cannot handle in a proper and
workmanhko manner. Today
wo do nil work which up to a
few years ugo had to ho sent

in Sanders, Ky., was dismissed
most summarily under un
pleasant circumstances two
Sundays since. Right in the
middle of the preacher's dis
couise there bolted into the
church through the half-open
door what appeared to be a
black and white cat, closely
followed by a yellow dog. Cat
and dog ran swiftly down the
middle aisle to the platform.
The preacher taken unawares,
did the natural thing, kicked
at the cat, hit it, and landed it
squarely in the middle of the
congregation. Then it turned
out that the cat was a skunk.
The rest of the story is left to
the imagination of the reader.
This week we want to call
your attention especially to the
Alaska Refrigerator and
give you a few items concern
ing its construction.
To give strength and dura
bility, an inside body, pr frame
is made of well dried, matched
wood, to which hardwood
cleats are solidly nailed. Upon
these cleats the outer body, or
frame, is built.
The inner frame is made
from perfectly odorless wood,
and is lined with zinc. Po
lished as bright as a mirror,
presenting a very clean and at
All exposed wood, as under
the lids and about the doors,
is odorless tulip poplar,
thoroughly shellaced. This
makes the Refrigerator clean
Between the outer and inner
walls there is an inch and a
half space filled with PURE
Charcoal. There i nothing
so good in every way for fil
ling the 'space between' the
two walls ot a Refrigerator as
The locks are entirety new
in principle, and are, without
exception, the best ever used
on a Refrigerator. They will
keep the door closed perfectly
tight, even if they were left
one-eighth inch loose.
The hinges are very strong,
beautiful in design, and made
expressly for The Alaska
All the trimmings are solid
brass, dipped finish, this being
the latest style in fine brass
From the results of tests
made during the. past three
years, we are convinced that
the Alaska is the best Re
frigerator in the market, in
constiuction, in power to pre
serve perishables, in economy
of ice, and, ' in fact, in all the
points necessary to make them
first-class in every respect.
