WHAT OF HAWAII.
As the prohabilitios iE McKin
ley'tt election aB President of the
United States appear to thickon,
euch an ovontuality iu its relation
to tho ltopublio o Ilawaii bo
comes moro and raoro a topio oE
local couoorn. Surmises as to
the early consequences aro vari
ous. Although tho claim is made,
but on grounds that tho Bulletin
1ms deemed rather vnguo, that the
declared policy o tho Republican
doctoral platform is annexation,
it is oxtromoly doubtful ovon if
6uoh should prove tho caso if
overtures looking to tho consum
mation would bo initiated by tho
"Washington Government. Thoro
is a strong opinion prevalent that
McKinloy's administration would
await tho renewal of the proposi
tion of tho ProvisionalGovernmont
iu 1893, in some moro definite
form than a diplomatic communi
cation iu general terms or tho
transmission of resolutions passed
by tho Hawaiian Legislature. It
is iu the same connection believed
by Bomu who study tho situation
at this end of tho lino that tho
Hawaiian Government will not bo
prepared to olTor so absolute a
bin-render of Hawaiian iudopend
enco as was offored by tho com
mihHioners of tho Provisional
Government. Thoro is no indica
tion that tho planters, always iu
tho saddle hero, are prepared to
cxi'lutngo their pot contract labor
system for tho secuiity and por
fiianont settlement of tho country's
dosliny which annexation would
proeure. Bather tho contrary. It
is deemed more a probability
lhan a raoro possibility, thoro
fore, that in tho event of
McKinley's election this Govern
in mi t will mako fresh overtures
for political union with tho Unit
ed States under an arrangement
whoioby tho institution of con
tract labor would bo preserved in
Ilawaii, or at least that it should
not bo immediately abolished but
grodually changed to a system of
free labor by a process soniothing
like the abolition of slavery in
Brazil. This course on tho part
of tho Hawaiian Government, it
is held by Americans hero who
keep in touch with tho spirit of
their country's politics, would sim
ply result in tho indefinite post
ponomont of annexation. If Am
erican laws regarding labor or
anything else aronotgood enough
for Hawaii, then Hawaii can
scarcely be considered as quite
reody to acquiro tho protection
aud other benefits of the Amuri
cau Hag. What this Government
may do after tho presidential olec
tion will decide its sincerity to
ward its fundamental principle
of political union with the United
States more precisely than miles

A Seoul dispatch of September

Official Gazotto last night wns to
I tho following effect: "Our
i treacherous servants have abused
1 tho law of tho country nnd reck
lessly introduced many changes,
calling tho Council of State by
tho now name Cabinet, aud repre
senting the righteous in tho
worst light nnd giving support to
tho depraved. The sacred law of
Heaven has thereby been violated,
nnd general uneasiness caused
both at home nnd abroad. Our
sorvants of Stato and Our beloved
subjects have been alike bitter in
thoir regret and indignation. As
such a stato of things is incom

name of Cabinet and call it by

According to a metropolitan
journal, says tho Japan Gazette,
Count Okuma, the now Minister
for Foreign Affairs, is said to havo
been taken aback at tho failure of
tho lto cabinet in thoir policy to
ward Corea when ho camo to bo
acquainted with the roal nature of
affairs. It is, iudeod, worse than
had been generally rumored or
nnyono had been led to imagine.
The ox-champion of tho Opposi
tion IB stated to bo nlmost at a
loss to know how to begin work to
put the house in order. Tho re
call of Mr. Hara, minister at
Seoul, is believed to bo a first stop
toward tho realization of ' Count
Okuma's foreign policy.
The Japan Gazette says: Tho
behavior of Russia with regard to
tho Pacific is of a nature to excite
uneasiness unless both Japan nnd
Eugland havo come to tho conclu
sion to givo her a free hand in tho
North. In n week transports con
taining 4000 troops passed through
Singapore, the troops boing des

Before Whitelaw Reid be
came Minister to France he
devoted a good deal of his
time to the conduct of his pa
per, the Tribune. The copy
editors who put up the head
lines of stories of the day fell
into the habit of making most
of them interrogative, as, for
instance, "Was it murder or
suicide?" or "Did she kill him
for love?" or "Will the Presi
dent sign it?" etc.
The whole paper was speck
led with interrogative points.
The thing had been going for
weeks, till one day a postal ar
rived, addressed to Mr. Reid,
and marked personal. It read
"I'm getting awful tired of
your questions. Why don't
you find out something? A
great newspaper is supposed to
know eveiything, and ought
not to annoy its readers with
needless inquiries. This morn
ing you asked: "Will Mr.
Piatt consent?" How the hl
do 1 know?
That night an order came
that the Tribune must ask few
In spite of Whitelaw Reid's
experience we are tempted to
ask the people of Hawaii a few
leading questions, just an even
half a dozen of them.
Question 1 Have you seen
the new improved American
Meat and Vegetable Chop
per? If you haven't it will pay
you to call and take a look at it.
It has an automatic rotarymove
ment as well as the up and
down chopping motion. They
are simply and cheap and a
child can operate them.
Question 2 Have you seen
the new Brass Bird Cages
we have just received? They
are beauties and they only cost
from $2.50 to $4.50 according
Question 3 Have you seen
the Painted Bird Cages we
are offering at $1.25 to $2.00?
Question 4 Have you seen
the Hartman Steel Wire
AUts we are offering? The
rainy season is coming on and
they are just what you want.
They are cheap, cleanly and
Question 5 Have you seen
the Rain Gauges we have
lately imported? With one of
these little instruments you
can laugh at the Clerk of the
Weather and give him a point
er after every storm.
Question 6 Have you seen
the latest thing out? It is a
portable bootblack stand, made
of iron, which can be screwed
to a post anywhere and moved
in any direction. Must be seen
to be appreciated. Complete
with brushes, two kinds of
blacking, etc., only $2.50.
