SI? Evei)ir Bulletin
OANIEL LOGAN, Editor. ,
TUESDAY, JUNE 1G, 189G.
Chief Justioo Jiuld asks tho
Bulletin to rettnet its statement
that the pot trait of tho lato Justice
MoOully was paid for out of pub
lic fluids. Ho says in a writtou
memorandum on tho subject:
"Tho widow paid for it horeolf
and presented it to tho Court. So
far as tho other portraits aro con
cerned, all were paid for by sub
scriptions by raombors of tho bar
and other friends; possibly the
portrait of Ohief Justice Loo was
not. It was in tho court when I
joined tho bar in 18G1. As to all
othor portraits but Leo's, I know
from my personal knowledge that
tho Government paid for uono."
Of course with theso facts all
criticism of whoro tho picture of
Justkv McCully win obtained is
otF. It is nobody's business but
thobujeiV. Tho Bullltin re
grets the error although stoutly
inr.intaining tho principle iulo
cated in tho article, of home
talent, us well as homo enterprise,
being patronized on all possible
oucasious when tho pooplo's
money is being expended for pub
It would bo idle at thi juncture
ti appraise tho work of tho first
regular session of tho Legislature
of tho Republic just closed. Tho
proof of tho pudding may as well bo
loft to tho oating. Yot a fow gener
al observations on tho session may
hi in point. For ono tluug,
tlio Legislature showed a good
deal of adiuirablo independence
generally in the interests of tho
whole people according to its
best wisdom. Tlio Exe
cutive was kept well in its
own place, being shown that,
white it miglit originate all the
measures it pleased, it could dic
tate nothing. This was strikingly
evidenced at an early stage, when
a bill to amend tho Laud Act of
1895, almost fiorcoly contended
for by Ministers, was rejected
without ruth. It was rogarded
as being unfavorable to tho
poor man's acquisition of a
homestead, and thoreforo it
had to dio tho death. Tho
bill fathored by tho Attorney
General as representing the Boaid
of Health, which in its original
form piovided for tho condemna
tion of private property without
duo process of law, would not go
down either until its dangerous
features were erased. Thou tho
Government's policy in respect to
national loans had to bo changed
to suit tho elected representatives
of the natiou. Passing over minor
matters, in which tho Executive
was placed on a buck seat, wo
como down to tho closing hours of
tho session, whon both houses
with crushing unanimity said:
"Gentlemen, wo will make tho
laws; you are to be satisfied with
executing thorn." Tlio Bulletin
suggested a fow days previously
that tho sako bill, so-called, wont
a littlo to oxtremes and might
bo hold to bo uu infraction of Jap
aneso treaty rights. Yot tho
sturdy indopondouco of tho legis
lators in stioking to a lino of
tariff policy, adoptod with on ap
parently cloar knowlodgo of what
thoy woro doing, cannot but be
admired. A fow days boforo they
had shown oqual courage, al
though with tho agreement in
that case of tho Exocutivo, by re
pealing tho Registration Act of
thoir own making when thoy wore
assured that it was not only going
to prove inoperative but hablo to
creato ovils of unforeseen variety
and oxtont. There was much time
aud oxpoiiBo thrown away, taking
tho special and tho regular ses
sions together, upon sundry com
missions whoso labors woro either
too perfunctorily and tardily per
formed, or, whoro accomplished
with mnch ability, as in the caso
of tho proposed now Penal Code,
only to have tho expensive results
consigned without eoremony to
tho waste basket. As intimated
at tho beginning, there is no in
tention hero to roview the
laws passed at this session.
Lot them bo judged by results as
thoy como into operation. Bene
fit to "tiro revenues ought to onstio
from tho very deliberately legis
lated measures to that end, aud if
tho rofundiug aud new loaui bills
fulfil promises, as thero is no
strong reason to think thoy will
not, public money will bo re
trenched by tho one, while bytho
other tho Government will bo in a
position to carry out oxtonsivo
public improvements and greatly
promote internal development.
A correspondent calls attention
to tho changed relation of this
community toward tho Fourth of
July. Tho ttnuiversury of Amei"
ican Indopondouco has for many
years been celobratod hero by re
sident Amoricans, with tho heart'
co oponition of othor nationalities,
in a manner and style that would
do credit to any town in the Unit
ed States. Tho day is now a na
tional holiday of tho Republic
of Hawaii, beiug tho anniversary
of tho promulgation of tho Con
stitution. Somo Hawaiiuu initia
tive should therefore bo in order
as well as that taken as usual by
tho United States representative
advertised today. As both coun
tries now own tho day an exchange
of invitations for its celebration
will bo in ordor. That is a
matter botweon tho Government
aud tho American ropresontativo.
But what the gouoral public needs
to see about is tho popular feat
ures of tho celebration. There is
not tho slightest danger that tho
Amorican mooting for making
arrangements will not bo ablo
as before to got up an effec
tive program, but bomoouo
should bo entitled to uiovo in
tho matter of either a joint
meeting for arraugemouts or
a joint committed fiom separate
meetings. Consul-Gonoral Mills'
call of meeting is broad enough to
admit of a joint main meeting,
oven to including tho wholo Gov
ernment, aud that would i,bo tho
simplor of tho two propositions.
So far as public sports and amuse
ments go, joint action is very do
sirablo. Whoro difficulty might
ariso would be iu amalgamating
the litoiary oxercibes. Thoro nro
somo Americans who would not
cure to huvo an admixturo of
Hawaiian politics in the senti
ments of patriotism toward thoir
own land which aro essontiul
features of tho time-honored exor
cises. Thoro is indeed no neces
sity for literary exercises in the
keeping of tho holiday on tho Ha
waiian side. Thoy would bo moro
appropriate on Hawaiian Inde
pendence Bay, Evon Amoricans
who aro Hawaiian politicians
would likely prefer to huvo that
particular part of tho celebration
strictly American, oxcopting in
tho expressions of international
friendship which have as a rule
been uttered by tho orators on

Over the purple profile of
the Waianae range the irides
cent gleam of the variegated
after glow suffuses the west
ern sky. A soft breeze blows
over the town, rustling the
foliage embowering thousands
of verandas. Akrsden's bats
go forth in quest of beetles,
their uncanny wings fanning
the whiskers of the "free and
independent," as they sit en
joying their post-prandial cigar
and meditating on the Regis
tration Act. Bill Williams puts
his number tens on the ladder
and mounts to his eyrie at the
mouth of the peaceful harbor,
where, with a Japanese safety
match he lights the lantern
that warns the mariner against
taking the Miowera's overland
route into the desired haven.

to a novel could be made out

some parlor lamp. We have
your choice of many varieties
of hanging lamps in the most
artistic styles silver, bamboo,
black iron, porcelain, etc., with
elegant shades. If it's "light

may just as well have it in

lower for equal value elsewhere.
Don't bother any more with
that woinout lamp, but treat
your household to a "thing

nightly glory over your do

Some people may have tried
to convince you that the mon
archy of the oil stove has been
abrogated in favor of other in
ventions. Don't give any
countenance to such a notion.
The oil stove has kept right
ahead with the march of pro
gress, until its improvement
has culminated in the Blue
Flame Oil Stove that we sell.
Jf we have told any of you
that our stock was exhausted
and would not be replenished
for some little time, we must
take it back as we do now
gladly. The Monowai agree
ably surprised us with a fresh
lot, and they are now opened
out. None who saw the ex
periments in cookery perform
ed on this stove in our store
recently will need to be in
formed of its superior merits.
Any who did not have that op
portunity are welcome to en

of the stove's qualities on ap
plication. One thing about us
is that we never try to sell
goods on the chance that they
may give satisfaction. We
want our customers to be thor
