Ono opinion advanced is that
tho accoptauco of arbitration of
tho Venezuela question by Great
Britain, at the express dosiro of
tho United States actiug under
the Monroe doctrine, will proraoto
jealousy on tho part of European
nations against the assumption by
tho United States ot control ovor
torritory beyond Amoriean con
tinental confines for particular
instance. Hawaii. This is far
fetched speculation of tho nature
of some wool that has been for
eovoral years rogularly pullod
ovor tho oyeB of Hawaiian na
tionalists. Any European coun
try will no more objoct to tho
closor cultivation by tho United
States of its long-recognized
"sphere of influence" covering Ha
waii, than tho United States has ob
jected or will object toEuropean ox
tensions of sovereignty or suzor
irinty over parts of Africa and
Asia or islauds in all oceans.
Any Biich objection could with tho
greatest facility bo disposed of by
indubitable proofs of tho bald fact
that subjects of every European
nation having interests hero aid
ed, by force of arms and with no
small utuonntof financial influence,
to establish for Hawaii tho at
titude of being a suppliant for
absorption into tho United Statos.
Every suoh European nation
bns also not only recogniz
ed such alieu cosmopolitan
notion, but has recognized tho Re
public of Hawaii as it stands con
Btitutionally committed to "closer
political union" with tho United
States. The time is past for di
plomatic objection by other
nntions to the oxisting claim of
tho United Statos to tho control of
tho Hawaiian Islands. Thoro
only remains to bo ascertained
upon what tormsi tho United
Stutes will admit Hawaii to tho
Union, and whether or not tho
people of Hawaii will accept tho
best terms tho United States may
bo willing to concodo. Tho Bul-'
LiU'iN dops not bolicvo that
the United States will over make
n forciblo conquest of Hawaii,
excepting it be from tho threaten
ed grasp of another Power or to
ri'so'ie it from dinantrnii internal
commotion. Hawaii, in tho name
and by I ho authority of her peo
ple, will not bo denied the privi
lege! ot both olToring and nccopting
terms of union. It io tho work of

Honolulu, H. I.
Wo have been sitting on
the rngged edgo of a damp
cloud for tho past two weeks,
contemplating the result in
tho event of the non-arrivul
of the S. G. Wilder, with our
ware and other ar-
which wo had selected
for the holiday trade. Yes
terday tho tension on our
nervous system relaxed; the
Wilder arrived and twenty
four hours after this goes into
print, wo will have a display
of line goods on our counters,
such as never was seon hero
The additional space re
quired has been obtained by
doubling up on our show coun
ters, making new ones and
changing around somo of the
old ones on tho second floor.
We're ready for business and
the number of sales of holiday
goods wo ' havo made during
the punt throe wouks coivtr.uus
us to believe that tho business
is ready for us.
