Bwcred, it ia necessary to know
where to find tlio majority. Per
haps the threo tnilorB of. Tooloy
street, London, who began n peti
tion with, "Wo tho pooplu oEEng
lnnd," voiced tho prayers oE a
majority of tho realm, but history
does not record such a fact. Ir
purposed of government, yeimral
or local, tho only majority to bo
recognized is ono discovered by a
count of ballots, a count of uplifted
hands or, if you like, a count of
protrudiug noses. It should be a
count anyway. Perhaps tho Trib
une always represents a majority
of tho good people of Hilo, and
again perhaps it does not. Tho
Bulletin is with it iu desiring
tho early advent of tho day
when the combined wisdom of
the whole country will doom tho
time lipo for adopting a system
of local self-government, not only
for the towns but the rural com
munities of tho islands. Under
present conditions tho people of
nuy (I;sliicl, however, have the
buiuo control over matleio of
national government jnriwliction
which exists in tho United States,
and which inuuicipal government
would leave unchanged iu this
country. They have an influence
over affairs through their chosen
legiMativo representatives. Some
times it is not much, but it is all
that can be hud, constitutionally,
in any system of representative
government. If tho representa
tives for tho lime being of a dis
trict cannot voico tho wishes of
tho majority that elected them,
thou tho peoplo will simply have

GOODBY PLOW I
In a lato Montreal paper thorb
is an account of an invention that
ib calculated to revolutionize agri
culture. The result of many years'
study and exporimont, it has been
'tested to tho satisfaction of com
petent judges. This invention will
wake tho plow a relic of tho past,
It does in a single operation the
work tlm ha heretofore required
several operations of various iiu
plomonts. What is important,
also, is that the new cultivator,
or whatever tho machine is to bo
called, does tho work hotter than
has boon dono by all tho pro
cosses it is to supersede. Instead
of packiug tho subsoil and turn
ing a compressed Bod that has to
be broken up by cross plowing
and harrowing, it thoroughly
pulverizes the soil to the required
depth as it is driven along once
for all by electric or other power.
At tho same timo it sows, tho seed
uniformly nnd. effectually covors
it up. In tho harvest time reap
ing apparatus can bo substituted
for the soil disintegrating me
chanism upon the same carriage.
Ono machine will bo suflicient for
working tho far ma of average size
in a considerable distriot, around
which it m ill tako its course liko
the thrashing machines for a long
timo in vogue. Farmers employ
ing tho cultivating machine will
bavs amplo timo on their hands
for tho subsidiary industries of
agriculture, such as hog and poul
try raising, dairying, bee keeping,
etc. Thoy will not bo premature
ly bent and warped in body, and
have their inward parts corrugat
ed, by holding tho stilts to an
ovon furrow. All tho fuu thoy
will havo stopped will be that
oE plowing matches at county
fairs. Strango it is that this ago
of teeming invention has not long
ago produced Buch an implement
as tho ono hero mentioned. Ex
cepting in artistic features and
material of construction, the plow
of the nineteenth century is but
slightly improved over tho rudo
implement drawn by Egyptian
cattlo in tho time- of tho Pharaohs.
This now invention, if accounts
aro not wrong, will not bo long in
coming into universal use, and tho
Hawaiian Islands with their
customary wolcomo to now inven
tions of proved merit will not bo
tho last country to tako advantage
of such a groat aid to, agriculture.
Japan is putting horself right
on tho currency quostiou. A bill
to croato a gold standard waB
ponding iu parliament at latest
accounts. An insight iuto tho
peculiarities of tho Japanese con
stitution is obtained in this item
from a Yokohama paper: "It is
stated in woll-iuformed quarters
that a majority of, the House of
Peers will opposo tho Bill, and
that tho Government havo deter
mined in that caso to dissolve tho
Diot and put the moasuro in forco
by means of an lmperiol Ordin
ance." Tho .lapaueso Executive
evidently has absoluto powor in
cortain cases similar to that givon
tho Executive iu tho constitution
of tho Republic of Hawaii. An
example of this is tho powor of tho
HawaiianExccutivo to go on spend
ing mouey after the Legislature has
signified its vants oE confidence
iu the adminiitrotion by refusing
to make appropriations.
Laud settlement is boiug push
ed vigorously on tho island of
Hawaii. Tho timo has about
come whon the land iu those isl
ands should bo protected from
alienation to any persons not
oligiblo for citizenship of the Re
public. Suoh an enactment would
effectually protect tho civilization
of tho country from swamping
from any -quarter. Tho laud
question is really tho koy to
tho situation in that respect.
With the soil secured to civiliza
tion cheap alion labor for its easy
development might bo regarded
with comparative equanimity.

We have recently imported
a few little novelties for the
household which we are sure
will find ready appreciation
among Honolulu people.
A Cigar Rest and Ash Tray
is something new. It can be
fastened, to any tableland is
just the" thing to use during a
sociable game of cards. It is
as easy to adjust as a letter
clip, contains a receptacle for
the lighted cigar and another
for the ashes. It takes up little
or no space, doesn't tip your
hand to the other fellow or
make any side remarks about
your bad playing, but by its
convenience leads to that feel
ing of satisfaction and content
ment without which no man
can properly play the great
American game of whist.
People have often wondered
whv barkeeoers always mix
(cocktails to order instead of
making up a lot and keeping
them on hand. The reason is
that they never taste as well

delicate aroma of the lemon
and the other stuff you flavor
the lemon with disappears on
standing. We have Lemonade
Shakers in sizes to suit from
one to six persons, so that you
can make just the requisite
amount. They are in silver or
