'WATCH OUR SMOKE."
On Sumlny wook tho town wns
littered with n paper wearing tho
lieail, "Tho Sunday Star." Moro
thfin half its reading matter was
printed from plates imported from
"tho Pacific Const. A report of
Saturday's bnsolmll match consti
tuted it "news," and to givo it
"missionary" tone an old sermon
preached down east was repriutod,
Tho pioncor splurge in Sunday
journalism was accompanied by a
boast that nothing but tho day's
news would appear in tho
puper. Nevertheless it con
tained moro than a column
of intelliuenco that hod appeared
in Saturday's Bulletin. On tho
Monday morning the Advertiser
by tho way all got up on Sun
day re:td tho Star owners a sor
mon on desecration of tho Sab
bath. Tho Star retorted, "Watch
our smoke," and inBiuuated that
the Advertiser was jealous of tho
Star's superior enterprise, repeat
ing also the stereotyped boast
that thero wore neither strings
nor boll connections on the Star.
It lator bantored its contempora
ries generally on their jealousy
and slowness, venturing the
opinion that they would all bo
trying to follow its lead in Sun
day isbues. No charge of jealousy
could ho agaiust tho Bulletin,
however, for it had not noticed
tho Sunday freak. It saw tho
"smoke," but could not eeo any
fire. A puff from tho owners of
tlio outfit, and oven tho "smoke"
disappeared. Tho Sunday Star
did not last long enough to pub
lish its valedictory, which is dono
for it in the Saturday Star thus
"PAU SUNDAY STAR.
" Complying with tho expressed
wishes of a majority of the direc
torate of tho Association, Ltd.,
tho immediate conductors of this
paper will rest with Sunday pub
lication with the one experimental
number put out on tho 2nd iust."
No strings or bolls on tho Star!
ENGLAND IN EGYPT.
An article in the London Times,
commenting on another ono in the
Edinburgh Review, shows tho way
tho cat jump with regard to tho
groat question of "England in
Egypt-" It is an illustration of
ndroitnrss in cultivating British
publio opinion into tho recogni
tion of changed conditions
whioh transform apparently tem
porary into pornianont necessities
of national policy. Tho text of
tho Edinburgh Reviewer was "a
short and abrupt paragraph in
Tho Times" of March 18 announ
cing that tho Egyptian army was
about to advance upon Dongola,
upon which he expressed tho
thought that tho expedition was
not forcpd upon England by tho
ao'ion of othors. This Tho Times
admits is truo "in a litoral souso,"
but utters this proposition:
Yet by tho action of others, and
porhops still 'more by tho condi
tion temporarily not distinguish
able from panic into which others
wore thrown by thoir sufferings,
we wore forced to founder very
Borioufdy the expediency of in
stan action of some kind upon tho
Tho Times goes on to discuss
the question na to whether a very
modorato diversion at Wody Hal
IjJtJllJMiriL'i it. rtjfikiTMf'iitoiiiii'iiiiiilfiifairr '!iA','Jrilt"
fa might have sufficed to roliovo
tho prossui'o at Kassaln. It holds
that tho Khalifa is no fool, nor by
any means badly served. Ho
might not have been decoived by
any mero foint, and "oven an in
effectual foint would have cost
money, and in tho long run possi
bly as much money as would havo
sufficed to do tho thing well."
The Times docides that when it
was thought imporativo to mako a
diversion at ouco upon tho Egyp
tian frontior, it waB wiso to mako
that diversion really formidable
to tho Khalifa. "But ovor pres
ent to tho minds of tlioso respon
sible for tho government of Egypt
is tho knowledge that tho pornian
ont tranquillity of tho country
can never bo nssurcd until tho
power of tho Khalifa is broken
aud a considornblo portion of tho
Sudan placed under the same ad
ministrative conditions as Egypt
Tho Roviowor and Tho Times
are at ono in tho opinion that "it
IB not a mero question
o raidB upon Egppt by
savago tribeB upon her fron
tier." On tho contrary, theso
raids "aro actions in a continuing
war, implacably waged by a
militant organization wanting in
neither men nor money nor
brains nor fauaticism. With that
organization no truco is possible,
and so long as it holds tho middle
Nile, no peace is possiblo for
Egypt." On account of povorty
Egypt has hod to play a waiting
game,andThoTimes says that, even
with tho great injury liable from
tho Khalifa's unchecked success at
Kassalo, an Egyptian statesman,
having regard only to Egyptian
intorests and wielding only
Egyptian resources, would havo
been compelled to still act on tho
dofonsivo only aud trust vaguely
to tho chances of tho future. Tho
question therefore results as to
whether Egypt should pay tho ex
penses of this expedition, aud
Tho Tim 08 concludes that, so far
as tho policy is too expensive for
her means, Egypt ought not to
pay. Sho ought to pay that por
tion of tho oxponse which can bo
met out of reserve and currant in
come, wlrito England ought to
find that portion of the monoy
which Egypt, going to war as an
independent State, would havo to
raise by way of loan. "Monoy
being forthcoming, tho whole ex
pedition becomes a gonuino
Egyptian interest, neglected
hitherto for no reason in the world
except inability to pay."
This brings them to another part
of tho question, tho position of
England in Egypt. They had
again and again reminded thoir
continental cntics that tho serious
disabilities under which they
wore placed as administrators of
Egypt had tho effect qf compelling
thorn, whether they would or not,
to postpono many things which
must bo accomplished boforo
Egypt could possibly stand alone,
or in tho alternative to do thohu
things at thoir own cost and thus
"establish moral claims which
cannot bo ignored, and which aro
in fact recognized ovorywhero ex
copt in France." Tho Times com
plains that Egypt is not allowed
to borrow money for reproductive
publio works, nor oven to invest
her surplus in national enterprises
that would add immensely and
immediately to her revenue.
Franco took great delight in this
state of ntrairs, but, like other
ploasures, it had to bo paid for in
some way. " Insonsibly but
surely," Tho Times remarks, "tho
difficulties thrown in our way aro
modifying tho whole situation by
piling up moral claims which did
not exist when wo undertook to
settle Egypt and leave her to her
self, and which would not have
arisen had wo boon loyally helped
in a task undertaken for tho com
mon benefit." In other words,
England says that tho obstruction
thrown in hor way has
oompollecl fier to pay tho
price entitling her to indefinite
control of Egypt. Tho Times
quotes tho Edinburgh Reviewer
as advocating a departure from the
ovasivo and ambiguous policy rela
tive to Egypt, and Baying frankly
that, whilo not annexing Egypt,
they do not protend to foreseo any
futuro timo whon it will not bo
necessary for them to remain
thoro as tho indisponsablo guard
ians of Egypt's proapority and
European interests, otc. Upon
whioh tho Times, although its own
arguments load up to tho same
conclusion, makes tho cautious
commont in closing: "His argu
ments in favor of this thesis are,
academically speaking, well
worthy of consideration; but wo
refrain from discussing them in
detail, because wo consider that

Democratic Party And
The singular situation, of the
Democratic party at this time
is aptly illustrated by the story
of two Irishmen who occupied
berths in a sleeping car on one
of the great American railway
lines. A collision took place
in the night and confusion
ensued. Both men dressed
hastily, and when they emerged
from behind the curtains, Pat,
recognizing his friend Mike,
said to him, "Aike, are you
hurted?" "No," said Mike,
who in his haste to dress had
gotten into his trousers with
the hind part before, "I am not
hurt, but am fatally twisted."
The Democratic party, it is al
most needless to remark, is like
unto Mike, "fatally twisted."
Instead of being twisted in
a railway collision, however,
Democracy seems to have been
twisted by wind. Whether
some remnants of the recent
iSt. Louis tornado hovered
around the Chicago convention
or whether it was simply a
tornado issuing from the mouth
of the"BoyOrator of the Platte"
certain it is that windy
eloquence carried the day in
the Democratic convention,
and from all accounts the
campaign will have to be
carried through on wind, as the
banks refuse to let the Demo
crats have any gold to run
If the windy eloquence of a
boy orator can force a Presi
dential nomination in favor of
an almost unknown candidate,
what must be the power of old
Boreas himself when he turns
loose a consignment of the
real article. We have seen it in
the almost total destruction of
a portion of the city of St.
Louis and we have seen it
take a "twist" through Kapio
lani Park just to show the
people of these islands that we
are not entirely forgotten.
Wind, however, properly
regulated and controlled is not
only a good thing in the mouth
of a man like Wm. J. Bryan,
but it is a better one in the
case of the Aermotor Wind
mill, and a very little of it
will answer the purpose. The
mechanism of the Aermotor is
of Steel and it is simplicity
personified. A boy or an
ignorant Jap can run it and
keep it in order. Only a few
weeks ago we replaced a wind
mill set up in the grounds of
the Queen's Hospital, which
would not do the work re
presented, by an Aermotor.
There has been no trouble
about water since. The hospital
people are using more water
than ever before, have more to
use and yet the Aermotor only
runs a portion of the time.
For the first time in the history
of the institution, the trustees
are assured of water enough to
irrigate the entire grounds and
the pipes will soon be laid
to do so.
But enough said! Everybody
knows the Aermotor does
exactly what it is represented
to do. To those who have not
examined its simple construc
tion we would like to show a
small working model which
we have in operation.
