United Stntes Consul Donnolly
in .Mexico lntoly miulo n roport to
' bis government ou tho importance
of a knowledge of languages in
connection with trade. Ho de
plores tho smnlluesB of volumo in
trndo between tho United States
Hiid countries to tho south, attri
buting it to tho ignorancoof Spau
ish on tho pnrt of most Amoricnu
commercial travelers. Uo says
thnt "tho United Stntes does more
business with tho 5,000,000 Eng
lish spunking people in Canada
than with tlm TO.OOO.OflO nnd more
Spanish-speaking pcoplo in South
America, although tho latter peo
ple are more noturnlly our allies,
nil being parts of ono groat Amer
ican Republic." Consul Donnolly
urges that Spanish should bo
moro generally learned by young
Colonel George "W. Boll, United
States Consul to Sydney, on his
arrival nt Snn Francisco latoly
delivered an interesting address
before tho Chamber of Commerco
thoro. Ho attributed to commerce
nnd tho commercial spirit the
progress of tho world in
civilization. This generation
waB better than any that had
preceded it because it was tho
grentestcommercial generation tho
world had seen. Commorco had
"ver been tho ally of freedom.
"Tho commercial statistics of a
country represent protty closely
the sum total of that country's
intellectual life. To tako an ex
treme case, Russia with 125,000,-
000 people hns nlmost oxnetly the
sutue foreign commorco thut Aus
tralia with 4,000,000 people has,
and enoh has 800 nowspapors and
periodicals. Counting interstate
commorco wo are tho greatest
commercial people on earth."
Coming down to the concrete
Consul J3cll scouted tho danger
of over-production in tho Uuitod
States. Ho thought there could
bo no over-production until nil
God's children hnd all that thoy
wanted. What tho Uuited States
wanted was moro perfect com
merce, better distribution. In
Australia wore four millions of
tho richest people in tho world,
"who with their nbility to buy had
n desiro for tho best that could be
b'lught. Tho United States should '
linvo forty per cent of their trade

LEARNING TO TEACH.
"What our educational depart
ment ueodB is a permauont normal
school, with a stall of specialists
from such institutions nbrond. It
seems to nn ordinary porsou up n
treo that a great deal of the didac
tics purveyed to tho Bummor
school is away over tho heads of
tho majority of teachers in atten
dance. Besides, it does not ap
pear to bo tho right thing to have
tho teachers cnged in a summer
school in Honolulu during vncn
tion. Thoy need rest and recrea
tion just ns much ns tho children
they tench, and without such they
will not go back to their duties in
good trim for work. Tho depart
ment should aim systematically
at getting normal school gra
duates ns teachers in all the
schools of the group. A tencher
ought to know his or hor business
of teaching, tho scholastic quali
fications for specific grades being
another mnttor. To got work as
n carpenter a man must have
learned tho trade, and it should
bo tho same with toachors. Tho
Govorumontshould not bo expect
ed to give free instruction to
teacherB that thoy have employed
undor tho presumption that thoy
had learned tho profession al
ready. A free silver coinage President
would bo impotent to carry out
tho object of his election without
a majority in each house of Con
gress favoring tho cause. It is
hardly likely that both theso fact
ors will be found existing together
in tho next presidential term.
Cleveland was elected on a tariif
for revenue platform, but all that
resulted was a messing up of tho
tariif for protection. Tho majori
ty in 1S02 wn.i simply bamboo,
led. A majority for Bryan and freo
silver this year would probably
not faro differently.
Ono thing that tho fiasco of tho
Socialist Congress in London
teaches is that evolution and not
revolution must continue for a
while yot as tho moro Buccossful
mode of accomplishing political
and social reformation. While
tho Congress was carrying out a
bear-gardon performance, the
"mother of parliaments" wns busy
enacting laws of a purely social
description for aiding dopressed
industry in tho throe kingdoms,
facilitating tho adoption of
modern inventions to promote tho
common hnppinoss, and bo forth.
In proclaiming tho merits of
tho Hawaiian climate, these isl

"YOUR MOUSE IS ON
This may be the warning
cry to you some night.
Whether it refers to your store,
factory, mill, oilice, or resi
dence, it means that all of your
valuable account books, secu
rities, deeds, insurance policies,
notes, receipts, mortgages, etc.,
will be destroyed if not pro
tected by a lire-proof safe.
Can you afford to run this
hazardous risk? The loss of
an insurance policy alone in
nine cases out of ten would
cause you endless trouble and
expense in going to law to se
cure a settlement, and then
your chances of coming to a
satisfactory adjustment with
the insurance company would
indeed be very slim. It is a
duty that you owe to your
business, to your family and
to yourself to protect these
things against both fire and
thieves. That old tin box or
drawer in which you have
been in the habit of keeping
your papers, would be of no
