DANIEL LOGAN, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, AP1HL 23, 1897.
- Readers of the Bulletin would
havo remembered, in perusing tho
war hhwh furnished yesterday, that
the focus of tho fighting 1ms boon
on the same ground as thnt ou
which tbo battlo of Actium was
f out! lit a gonoratiou prior to tho
Chiistinnora. This was anticipated
in tin iiric!o priuted iu tbia paper
Bovoral days proTiously. The ex
istence ot grim wtir with modern
weapons in tho very cradlo of tho
human race, where titanic strug
gles conducted by allworld heroes
for ompiro took placo many cen
turies ago, ought to give an itu
petiid to tho study ot history. It
was tho Aryan race and civiliza
tion with a measure- of freedom
which triumphed gouorally in tho
ancieut wars, and history in
this repeat to a large
extent may be hoped to ropeat it
self at this juncture Sinco tho
powers havo let Greoco and
Turkey bo up and at each othur
without a violent jar to tho con
cert, they ought to romovo the
nu fair embargo on Grecian re
sources which they havo created
in the blockado against her ves
sels. Greece ought in fair play
to have the frco uso of all the en
ginery of war sho owns, be
sides that of all the strategic po
sitions belonging to or that might
be gained by her. ' Theso things
she Hiiould bo freely granted even
if, for tho sake of tho world's
pe.aee, it might be expedient to
delimit the arena of her bolligor
onl action and, after the war is
over, to prevent whichevor coin
batunt may be victorious from
making territorial or other exac
tions of a kind to jeopardiao
It is ieurued that tho President
o the Bor rd of Health, Attorney
Gcuoral W. O. Smith, has raatari
ally changed his ideas upon our
mode of quarantine. He has
openly declared tlie opinion that
it was unnecessary to havo quar
antined tho Minister of Foreign
Affairs and other officials. Also,
that there is no reason for quar
antining cabin passengers of steam,
era having clean bills of health
or preventing thorn from lauding.
Mr. Smith is iu tho possession of
a mass of data upon tho English
'rules of quarantine, and after
digesting them sufficiently will bo
heard from. lie will propose radical
changes. The Bulletin is pleased
to h.nu iu iowti of quaiauliuo, as
girou repoatodly of late, endorsed
by such high authority, although
it doos not claim Mr. Smith as a
.convert. It is only an iuntanco of
pre&t minds running in grooves,
if a certain eonsitivo contemporary
will pardon the pleasantry.
Public buBiuoJii was seriously
impeded by tho incarceration ot
the Minister of Foreign Affairs
and Education in quarantine for
oighloon days. Had the extrome
TJowg of eomo people- governed
the precautionary measuros of tho
Eoaid of Health, so that Mr.
Cooper aud tho ollior officials
would havo boon shut up with tho,
immigrants at the immigration
quarantine station, tho business
of tho country would havo buou
Imm pored by their ubsouco now
lor another oighteen days, ou ac
count ot that other case of small
pox among tho Japanese iinini
That was rather a nhrowd re
flection of tho Ghiuoso Minister
to Washington on our quarantine.
It does look odd to havo tho Gov
ernment allow our people, iu any
n umbo thut chuosuH, to niulmrk ou
board a ship that Is under such
snaplel hi of being infoulud that
nono of lior imbiu piiHsoiigoiri are
nllnwad to luiiuli Ilitwailrin soil.

for Fnllnre of Arritneetnenm

Minister Cooper returned to tho
Foreign Office after hie qnaran
tiuo at Waikiki this morning.
Meeting a BrLLETlN representa
tive at the entrance of the Execu
tive building, tho Minister of For
oign Affairs desired him to correct
an inaccurate statement in a pub
lished interview with tho Chinese
Minister to Washington, who lato
ly passed through hero in tho
steamer Gaelic, regarding his
troatmout nt Honolulu.
"It is nil nousouse," Minister
Coopor said. "Tho Chinese Min
ister was uoti treated with dis
courtesy so far as tho Foreign
OfTico is concerned. I sent a lotter
of regrot to Mr. Goo Kim, tho
Chinese representatiTe hero, for
tho disappoiutmont to tho Minis
ter. Como inside and 1 will show
you tho copy of the letter."
Accepting tho invitation the
Bulletin representatives was hand
ed the letter book and allowed to
transcribe the following commu
nication: "April 3, 1897.
"Sir, I havo tho honor to ac

special mooting of tho Hoard of
Health was convened to receive

that from letters recoived from the
sanitary officors at Kobo aud
Yokohama smallpox was still

Miuistor Coopor said further
that arrangements had boon mado
for a reception, as pleasant as it
could be made, to tho Chiueso
Minister at tho Executivo build

boon carefully prepared, and the
President's carriago eugaged to
convoy tho distinguished visitor
from tho steamer aud back.
"As to the absence of a salute,
of which tho Chinese Minister is
eported to have complained," Mr.
Coopor added, "it has nover boon

A FEW NOVELTIES FOR
By the Australia we have
received some novelties in
Kitchen utensils whicch will
be appreciated by all Hono
lulu housekeepers on sight.
- The Champion Roaster
is handy, convenient and cheap.
It is a portable oven designed
to be placed on top of an or
dinary cooking stove. It will
bake anything in the shape of
fish, flesh or fowl and for
cooking cake it is unequalled.
It can be moved about while
the cooking is going on and
the heat regulated to a nicetv.
They cost just an even &2.S0.
Stroud's Self Basting
Pan is another useful novelty.
It consists of an enameled dish
or cooking pan which sets in
side another in which the hot
water is held. It can be used
inside an oven or on top of
the stove. Its price is $.$0
Telescope Coffee Pots
we have advertised before and
their merits are known. They
are absolutely the best in use
and that is saying a good deal.
We have a fresh suddIv of
them on hand in several sizes.
We have also received by
this steamer a fresh invoice of
the Blue Flame Oil Stoves
in two sizes, either three or
four burners, which we are
selling now at $22 and $2$

This is a serious question,
one at which some folks take
offense, yet salesmen are under
tho necessity of asking it.
Some folks deal near home,
settle infrequently, never in
vestigate to see whether they
pay more than they should and
too often allow their accounts to
go long over due. If you don't
care what the family expenses
are it's a poor way to do if you
want to leave your children in
aflluont circumstances when
you aro gone. Now it is quite
an advantage to have an open
account at a well-known house,
who can execute your order
promptly. ' Often persons say
they don't want an account and
will pay in a few days. But
we cannot keep memoranda of
charges; it isn't safe or good
business. The stock found in
ordinary stores is usually stale,
uninviting and inferior, while
the stock in our store is turned
so frequently and so carefully
watched that it is at all times
fresh. Our stock in trade con

cacies from every civilized na
