EVENING BULLETIN, JUNE 3, 1897.
Sl? Eueiii?$ Bulletii,
DANIEL. LOGAN, Editor.
THURSDAY, JUNE 3, 1897.
Minister Hatch, in n lottor to
Mr. Dillingham, holds n bright
viow of nnuoxatiou prospects.
From nil that has thus far trnuB
pired, thu truth probably is thiit
MoKinley'd administration is
ready to rocoivo tho iplauds into
the Uuiou, but that CougrosB
rb constituted this session will not
support defiuito pioposnla of nn
noxntion. Publio opinion appears
to bo taking tnoro and moro to
Hawaiian annexation, however, so
that thoro is a fair probability
that boforo President MoKinloy
goes out of office it will bo accom
plished. It bogius to appear as if tho
Republican party, as represented
in Congress, bnB decided to givo
Hawaii a stouo whore the Demo
cratic party gave it bread. That
is, with regard to reciprocity.
The policy announced by 8ena
tor Aldrich is based on very
superficial views of the balanco of
trade. Much the greater part of
the eight millions alleged to be
in Hawaii's favor stays in the
United StateB and a good deal
goes back to that country of tho
money which does come here.
Minister Shimnmura of Japan
ha had a two days' conference
with Miuistor Cooper of Foreign
Affairs. Thero was no meeting
of the diplomats today, whence it
may be conjectured all is said on
both sides that can bo for the
present. It is rumored that tho
mattors in controversy will be re
ferred to Washington for the
opinion of the United States Gov
ernment. This is bo sensible a
rumor for Honolulu as to be
I'roiu Mouth Africa.
A private letter from Johannes
burg, dated April 16, iust received
in Sail Francisco, contains the
following interesting bit of in
formation regarding tho condition
of affairs in South Africa:
Wo are undergoing a very
serious business depression here,
in fact, times started to become
bad just after tho Jamieson raid
in January 18!)G, and have been
growing steadily worse ever since.
Under existing conditions I could
not odviso auybody "to venture
coming out here; the whole
trouble lies with this rotten Boer
Government, which taxes the very
life out of tho miniug industry.
We are liable to have another rov
olution here most any time, in
tact, most of us feel it is very near
at hand, and this next one will be
very different from all previous
ones, as this time the Boers are
sure to be licked and their Gov
ernment overthrown. There are
now only about one-half the num
ber of mines in active operation
compared with when I first arriv
ed, and there are as many idle
white men in Johannesberg as
those working. When this poli
tical crisis is settled we will have
another big boom, but not before.
Judge Ferry has ordered that
J. O. Carter, administrator of the
estato of Henri G. McGrow, pay
ovor to Henry Smith, clerk of tho
Judiciary, as trusteo for Reynold
Drodie McGrow, sole heir of tho
estate, all of tho property in his
hands, and that he bo discharged.
.Tho commissioner's report on
partition of Robinson estato pro
perty in Ewa was approved by
Judgo Perray. Kinney & Ballou
for petitioners; 0. Brown for J.
O. Carter, representing tho minors;
Thurston & Stanley for Caroline
Our work is better and oar
prices are lower for enlarged
portrait work than anyone olso's.
Wo are not making much at it,
but don't' lot that worry you. If
you havo anything in this lino to
bo dono soo our samples first,
and you won't regret it. King

TO AMEND THE TREATY

Senator Afdrioh on May 25
mado a long set speech on tho
tariff, a large proportion of his
remarks being on tho sugar ques
tion. On the Hawaiian treaty ho
Tho cominittoo will also preparo
and present an amendment to tho
House provisions in regard to the
Hawaiian treaty. Tho existing
commercial treaty betwoen the
United States and the Govern
ment of theso islands provides for
the freo admission of raw sugars,
the product of theso islands, into
the United States. If this treaty
should remain in force it would
result in giving a bounty to tho
Hawaiian sugar producers
amounting to more than $8,000,
000 per annum. It waB not con
templated when tho original
treaty was made or when it was
extended that any possible advan
tage of this kind could ever result
from its terms to tho peoplo of tho
Tho effect of this bounty would
undoubtedly bo to stimulate enor
mously tho production of sugar
in the Hawaiian Islands. While
we cnuuot fairly abrogate a treaty
of this kind with a friendly coun
try without notice, we bolievo that
negotiations should be at once on
tered into looking to such a modi
fication of the treaty as will ro
duco tho bounty to bo paid Hawai
ian sugar producers to a reason
able sum, and the committee will
present an amendment looking in
that direction at an early day.
Thero should be no difficulty in
seeming through tho treaty-making
power such modification of
the treaty (bb will be Botisfactory
to both countries without injury
to either. It certainly cannot be
expected that the United States
will continue for any length of
time to pay a bonus of seven or
eight millions of dollars per an
num as an inducement to any for
eign country to trade with us. I
assume thero will be no difficulty
in securing proper modifications
of the treaty so that it will not bo
necessary for the Government of
the Unitod States to give the one
year's notice of abrogation of
treaty as provided for by its terms.
Senator Vest, in replying to
Aldrich, said that it would have
been at least more honorable had
the committee proposed to abro
gate the Hawaiian treaty, rather
than kill it indirectly.

BIRD CAGES, TROPICAL
Everyone knows that a bird
in the hand is worth two in
the bush and this is particu
larly the case when the bird is
a pet canary and a good singer.
Nice birds should be kept in
nice cages and then they will
have no desire to take to the
bushes. We have just opened
up a variety of Bird Cages in

on in all its force and the small

tussle with that luscious iruit.
In former years for every
mango fit to eat the boy
knocked down with a rock he
destroyed eight or ten unripe
ones Besides half ruining the
tree. All this is changed now
since the introduction of our
Wire Fruit Pickers. With one
of these attached to a long pole
any particular mango can be
plucked without hurting the
tree or knocking off the unripe
fruit. By using one of these
handy pickers one gets several
times" more fruit in better con
dition than by the old way of
firing. rocks at the tree. They
cost only JO cents each and a
child can use them.
