SATURDAY, OCT. 15, 1898
Local firms nro now mnkinp
queries about tlio nwnriliug of the
water pipo contract.
It will bo indeed funny if n
judge cannot be found among the
legal light" nf Ililo.
Tlio whirling prosperity boasted
of itself by the Star is attracting
the talent of the Advertiser.
Perhaps tho boo horso found
dead at Pearl harbor belongs to
tho escaped horse power of the
Spanish fleet at Manila.
Return of tho white labor ques
tion to prominence suggests the
query: "Whero has Labor Com
missioner Fitzgerald disappear
Congressman Hitt, when ho ar
rived in San Francisco, said, or
was made to say that the Japa
nese laborers hero are obliged to
return to their native country at
tho expiration of their contracts.
Whoro did this information come
from? It is news here.
Apropos of tho charges preforrcd
against Senator Quay, it is notable
that the crimes ho and his friends
are supposed to have committal
remained dormant until rilm-it
election time. Tho pooplo are n -pidly
"getting onto" this kind of
political capital, and tho men who
uso it gain nothing.
Another of tho beneficial
features of tho war with Spain is
tho forcible awaking of citizens of
tho interior stuto to tho realization
that tho United Statos has a sea
coast and shipping to look oftor.
Tho protection to American ship
ping givon by presont laws is
goxl so far as it goes, but owing
Ito tho apathy of Congressmen
from tho interior, it lias been
practically impossible to dovelop
this lino of protection as fully as
might bo desired. Thoro wore too
many men of tho middle wost who
never saw a sailing vessel and to
whom the expression "American
shipping" convoyed a vaguo and
Tho education of tho paBt few
months has boon particularly valu
able and tho chances arc that tho
protectionists of tho Coast Statos
wi'l receivo more hearty coopera
tion from their back country
brothron. It is apparent that the
presont protection givon Amoricau
ships is m. i 11 cieut to meet suc
03s6fully the competition in foreign
tradp. The republicans as a rulo
aro disinclined to oiler direct as
sistanco by subsidy. A bounty on
export tonnago or a differential
tariff in favor of American bottoms
is tho more probublomove. Such a
policy will awakon tho echoes of
American ship yards and prevent
tho lowering of tho standard of
wages on American ships.
In order to raiso American ship
ping to tho standard tho business
of tho country warrants, tho pro
toctivo schemo must bo developed,
and niado as completo as that
which has givon tho manufactur
ing interests their advancement in
tho commercial world.
H. At. S. RENOWN,
Halifax, N. S.,
Sept. 17, 1898.
Kniucr William is said to have
postponed his trip to tho Holy
Land on account of tho demands
mado by tho United Statos regard
ing tho Philippines. Tho Kaiser
scorns detorraincd to havo his
pioco of tho pio and if ho has no
ill will against tho Unitod States
hi can at least bo credited with
putting up a very strong gamo in
tho field of international politics
Volunteer regiments aro finilint;
that to fight is not tho whole duty
of tho soldier. One of tho urent
lessons of tho late war whs the
lack of America's rendiness for
war. President JIcKinloy doeB
not intend to b caught napping
while the international war clouds
aro as thick as tln'y aic at present.
One of tho products of Queen
Rose's visit to Topeka is tho song
"My Honolulu Lady." Hilo han
a chanco for anothor complaint
as exclusive claimant of all local
glory which may attood the trip
of Miss Rose. Possibly what i-
lost in the song is made up to
Hilo by the statement t' a Topeka
paper by Sorgt. Egner of tho Sal
vation Army that Miss Rose Jived
on the corner of Twelth and
Mnin streets. If tho Htreots of
Hilo nre getting so thick thoy have
to bo numbered, thn capital of tho
big Island is indeed experiencing
LIFE INSURANCE QUERIES.

surance editor, an queries In reference to Life Insur
ance Cempanies or Life Insurance Policies, which
may be Interesting to the general public
Ploaeo givo mo somo information
as to tho condition and standing of
tho Mutual Reserve Fund Life As
rociation of Now York. C.H. 0.
Tho Mutual Resorvo Fund is an
assessment association. They com
inouced business 1881. On tho first
of this year according to tho offici
al Now York Insurance Roport,
they had outstanding insurance
amounting tolS301,GG7,000, at tho
same time their total ledger assets
wore only S1,139,:)C7. Tho number
of policy or certificate holders
has decreased (!511 since tho first
of last year. A lifo iusuranco as
socintion of tho kind is not to be
compared with standard companion
such as tho old Mutual Lifo, Equit
able, N. Y. Life, Manhattan and
Germauia Lifo Iusuranco Companies.
A review, published in Harpers
for Ootober,of tho work of the Am
erican navy in Asiatic waters
brings forcibly to tho public mind
that Douoy is not tho first Amer
ican to distinguish himself on that
sido of tho globo. Nor has tho pro
sent war given the firet ovidoDce
of good will between Americans
and tho Briiish. Tho United States
has sinco tho early flnv '"ken a
hand in tho affairs of tho Oriont
and the " oxtontion and protection
of our commerce" has over noon
tho propelling force. While- the
American havo never before figur
ed in Philippine waters, tho an
nexHtit n of thoso iskftids is as
complete a f nlfillmont of "manifost
destiny" ne tho annotation of Ha

A short, middle aged man with
tho nppeaianco of a Norwegian,
called in at tho rjolico station yes
terday. Ho complained of being
alllicted with inflammatory rheu
matism which incapacitated him
for work of any kind. Ho also
stated that ho had been to tho
American Relief 8ociety for help
but had been refused. From all
that could be learnod at tho police
station, the man is really very ill
ami is nanny aoio to walk.

Thoro camo direct from Wash
ington to Gonoral King on a re
cent atoamor ordors to refuse to
accept any moro applications on
tho part of enlisted men orotlioors
for dischargo. This comes from
President MoKinley and is tho
outcomo of tho very largo uumbor
of applications of tho kind that
havo poured in since the termina
tion of tho war.
