TUESDAY, APKIL 7, 1896.
It is gratifying to obscrvo tho
care tlmt the Legislature ia be
stowing upon various schemes for
improving Honolulu. The bill
for extending certain streets and
tho one for widening certain
streets ought to result, within a
measurable period of time, in a
material enhancement of nppenr
ances as well as a vast gain to
public convenience. If these mea
sures only prove aB effective, be
sides as prompt in having effect
after discounting tho difforing
conditions, as tho law of 1892 for
improving tho sidowalks, they
will not bo beneath any onact
mont of this session in sub
stantial value as factors of pro
gress. "Whilo the publio trustees
are thus showing themselves alivo
to tho domands of metropolitan
development, there are private in
terests having much to do with
tho case which requiro to bo goad

Old Honolulu of tho medioval
or wooden ago that is, tho
period of transition from grass to
brick and stono houses has been
steadily disappearing for about
fifteen years. Tako Fort Street,
from Queen to Hotel, for exam
ple, and think of what a trans
formation thoro has been on both
sides Bince, Bay, tho year 1882.
Some of the best structures
in those rows wero, how
ever, delayed for some years
in being erected by the short
bighted indifferonco or obstinacy
of land owners, in some cases non
resident ones. Tho great China
town iiro of 1880 caused a mani
fest improvement in that locality,
making parts of the vistas of King
and Nuuanu streets agreeable to
tho vision whero before tho per
spective was hideouB.
Right in the midst of tho im
proved areas mentioned, thoro is
now an eyesore of considerable
magnitude' which is all tho moro
repulsive by contrast with elegant
blocks confronting it. Reference
is had to tho row of seven ram
shackle wooden houses and rudo
shanties extending from Port Btroot
to tho Metropolitan Meat Co.'s neat
brick market near Bothol street.
Hero tho non-resident landlord
is in evidonco again, according to
our information. Tho heirs of tho
dead original owner residing
abroad recoivo good rents for at
least some of tho shades in ques
tion, while contributing nothing
to the life of the city excepting
Vrt PRANK B. PETERSON & CO.
I the real estato taxes on tho pro
' porty. Ilarring tho lumber yards
I on thn watorfront and n littlo bit
of Queen street, tho row of dilapi
dated fabrics in question with
its rotten and frayed shingles and
clapboards and its almost ontiro
lack of modern paint constitutes
tho first unsightly and unlid'
viow that moots tho oyo of a visitor
when driving or sauntering up
town from an ocean steamer. If
it could bo done without too much
appoaranco of invidiuous or class
legislation, landlords of rucIi pro
perties should bo taxed out of
their obstructivoncss toward city
improvement. Thoro nro xesi
dont landlords of r.mplo means
over properties in other parts of
tho city, for whom a doso of tho
medicine just suggested ought to
bo prescribed. If a general
law could bo enacted to
cover all such cases, tho non
resident dilinquonts would bo
estopped from complaining of tho
treatment. Muttered invocations
to fire liavo been hoard wicked of
courso thoy are to comoand com
pel tho much desired transform
ation. This good servant but bad
master is something that sensible
peoplo would over pray to bo
averted, for there is no saying
where tho purifying butdovnstat
ing element would stop. Yet tho
very thought indicates tho mouaco
to valuablo property on all sides
which exists in tho prosonco of
that nest of fire-inviting rookeries.
Tho subject is ono that should bo
agitated until tho desired result
shull bo achieved.

Al a mess dinner the conver
sation turned on animal train
ing. "AM" said Aajor Binks, "I
remember when I was at Bog
gleywallah 1 tamed an oyster.
, He used to follow me all oveJ
the house, like a dog. The Kit-
maghars used to bring him to
'dessert, like a child, and he
1 would sit on the table at my
1 side with his shell open and
crack filberts most -affection
ate little creature."
"Have you got him still?"
asked a doubting auditor.
"No, sir; he came to an un
timely end. A friend of mine
came into the dining-room in
my absence, saw the oyster with
his shell open and swallowed
him. I shall never have an
other such pet 1" exclaimed the
major with a sigh.
"No doubt your friend swal
lowed the oyster," said the
president, "but I'm afraid we
can't swallow the story."
There are all sorts of stories
and there are all sorts of stoves.
This week we want to tell
you a little story about PAN
SY STOVES, and we antici
pate that you will have no
difficulty in swallowing it,
even if the oyster story was
too much for you.
PANSY STOVES are the
best in the market and that is
why we handle them. We
sell a stove a day averaging
the year round and most of
them are Pansies, and they are
"daisies" too for that matter.
We don't propose to be under
sold by any one in these isl
ands on the stove question.
All we ask of those wanting
stoves is that they come and
look at the Pansy. This stove
will sell itself without any
talking on our part..
We have the Pansy in three
numbers, 6, 7 and 8. It' has
five holes on top, burns wood
or coal and has all the very
latest improvements, even to a
"Kicker." With this little
arrangement the housewife
kicks the oven door open with
out burning or smutting her
fingers or spoiling her temper.
Ask your neighbor about
the Pansy stove. Only this
morning a lady came in and
said she had been using one
of our Pansy stoves for the
last four years, but her family
had got so large that she want
ed a larger sized stove,
although the old one was good,
yet. We sold her another
For a stove suitable for a
large household we recom
mend the Columbia. This
is a stove with six holes and
much more elaborately orna
mented than the Pansy.
We repeat again that we
will not be undersold on stoves
by any firm in the islands.

Pleasant remarks these. Just
the kind of balm a watchmaker

So it's no wonder a fellow
gets all out of sorts occasion
ally, and then it's tho time a
few romarks liko tho above
does what all tho patent medi
cine in tho world could not ac
complish, cheers up, makes
things look brighter, tho next
job goes all tho smoother.
Speaking of the above watch:
It was an old ono. Tho wearer
had used it steadily for forty
years. It had run enough ;had
revolved its wheels so long and
steadily, that at last it was
tired out. The pivots were so
worn, the wheels just wobbled
and wobbled, then stopped al
together. What wos lo bo
dono? Throw it away? Get a
new ono. Yes, but the wearer
valued it for its associations, it
was as dear to him as his best
friendjso nothing would do but
build it all over as it were, re
new tho parts, put some go
into it. That wo accomplished
it to tho entire satisfaction of
the owner, his remarks above
would surely leave no room for
doubt. And wo can do the
same- with yours, sometimes
they go a littlo too far, and tho
cost for reconstruction is too
much, but generally no work
is too intricato for us. It is
that which wo brog about,
complicated work is our strong
hold. Isn't it reasonable now
to .suppose that wo are better
able to do your less intricato
work? Wouldn't it bo safer to
give us tho custody of your
watch altogether, no matter
what the trouble, and have a
feeling of certainty as to its
