, President McKinley's ordor that
Spanish and Fronch coin be nc
cepted in Cuba is another proof
that the United Srntes will allow
the people of tho island to conduct
their own affaire.
If any member of the Eseoutive
wants to p'ovo that ho has the

and citizen ho i'h looked upon

Comment on the officiul organ's
attitude is hardly ntCPfPftty.
It is very nsturnl that tho offi
cial organ of Hawaii should now
regard Carl Schurz as Bort of a
martyr. Schurz is ono of those
unforlunnlo boings who has soar

United Statei in particular be

tho people refuse to make him tho

torial minority rule.
With an apparent ponchant
for giving oat as fow facts regard
ing the political situation as pos
sible, the Executive has ordered a
special olection without making
public the particular reason there
for. The public is loft to draw its
own inferences, and it is worthy
of uotico that the American mom
bors of the Commission wero moro
frt-o in thoir suggestions hb to
what tho situation would bo after
the territorial bill passed than
havo tho merabors of the govern
ment to which tho peoplo would
naturally appeal for information.
It now appears that a Senator
from Hawaii expressed a do
siro Bomo mouths ago to
resign, but tho oxecutiva would
not accept his resignation, be
cause his duties in a senatorial
capacity wore not completed.
Iu view of tho ordor for a new
olection tho ped0 nmy ow n
cepl as an assured fact that the
present legislature will install the
government for which tho terri
torial law provide. Should this
territorial law bo passed at the
present session of Congress it will
go into effect on July 4th, unless
aa explicit charjgo is mado calling
for tho immediate election of a
new legislature. This last is not
a probability. Tho new ofliciiilo
appointed by tho governor will
not only have to be ratified by tho
Ssnato, but provision must bo
mado for tho enltuy list. Not
only aro some of tho present qilit
cials wiped off tho territorial
board, but now ones aro added,
and in several ca3es hoads of
bureaus and heads of departments
morged into ono. Tho present
salary list will not fit tho caie,
and neither tho governor nor tho
Sonato is empowored to stato
what salary the now official shall
draw, wuotbor that of tho minis
tor or of the head of tho bureau.
Thus tho lowor houso will be
qui to as important a factor as tho
Senate in fitting tho salary wiWl-i
in otner-that tho now government
may run smoothly,
To a curtails extent tlio whole

is no reason for keeping tho cause

It is a matter iu which tho inter

FIRbT PIANO TO ISLANDS
Brought From Kona in the Steamer

King streot is an object of moro

mains of tho very first piano that
over camo to tho Islands. It is
tho property of Judgo Hart whoj
will havo it polished and put in
shapo again. It is not probable
that tho Judgo will bo ablo to play
on the instrument as ho did in hit
youngor days whon ho waB a rosi
deut of tho District of Kona, as
Micro is but little left of tho music
giving part of it.
It was in 1850 that Judce Hart
arrived in this country from Hilo.
Ho wont directly to Kona to live
and mot there a white man, Skin
ner by name, who had imported
the piano from England about
1810. Tho instrument passed into
different hands aud was at lait
bought by Mr. Mousarrat, the
father of tho young men of that
namo, now doing business iu this
Judgo Hart obtained the piano
from Mr. Monsarrat and
bad it takon to his house. It was
in 18G2 that ho left Kona for Ho
nolulu. Ho mado a present of the
instrument to a lady friend. That
friond died not long ago and the
relatives sont tho piano back to
Judge Hart by tho trip boforo last
of tho Mauna Loa to this port.
Naturally tho Judge is vory
glad to get back such an old
friend and ho will keep it among
the most highly prized of his pos
Tba instrument, whon placed
alongside of a concert grand of

fashioned closiug desk than any
thing ohe. Thero aro no grace

prominout. It is about (pur feet
in height aud only a little longer.
One woodou pedal sticks out un
obtrusively. There was, in tho
days when such instruments were
made, no increasinc of sound. The
ono pedal gave tho softened sound.
iu ppeakmg of Judgo Hart, it
might bo interostinc to know that
