MR. HAYWOOD AND HARBOR
Continued from Pagu-1.
ncent for tho ueo of tbo dredco in
case bis fitm should socuro tho
dredging contrnct from the United
btntos Government. Mr. Hay
wood's attention wes called to a
news itom in tho Bulletin some
days ago, stating that tho Cabinet
bad voted down a proposition to
lend tho dredgo to a private con
tractor. Ho said in reply:
"it would not mattor what this
Government voted down with re
gard to tbo dredge. Of courso it
belongs to tho United States, to
gether with other public property
transfened by Hawaii. Tho
United States Government can
take it ovor if it chooses. How
ever, while tho Hawaiian Govern
ment is using the dredgo to deep

which is incidentally an advan
tage to tho United StatoB it would
hardly bo fair that the dredge
should bo taken out of tho Ha
waiian Government's bands.
"Therefore, I informed tbo ap
plicant that I should not consent
to having tbo dredge loaned to any
pnvntp coutrnctor. It is being
used for tho benefit of tho Ha
waiian pooplo nud thoy should not
be deprived of its services. The

(From the New York Sun.)
Tho intrepid souls in Congress
who havo volunteered as the For
lorn Hopo of tho Constitution
should charge with all their chiv
alry against tho purposed soizuro
of Wnko Island by tho Govern
mont. If Wako Island can be
conquered by tho United States,
there is no limit to tbo march of
conquest, and Vest and Caffery
have been thrown away. Against
this conquest there nro Constitu
tional objections as grave as any
yet presented by tho nnti-annrx

viso that it shall bo oither a Ter
ritory or a State.
Tho unconstitutional Pacific
oable, for tho benefit of which this
unconstitutional island is to be
used as nn unconstitutional cnblo
station, is to connect tho United
States with unconstitutional Ha
waii, nuuexed nnd governed with

most unconstitutional of nil uu
Tbo Intitudo and longitude of

Tbo Bounington, which has

rantly unconstitutional. I There is
no stoam iu tho Constitution. Tho
makers of the Constitution nover
provided for transportation by

The question is often
asked, How can you sell goods any
cheaper than any other house ?
That is easily answored we do a
CASH business, and do not have to
add 10, 15 or 20 per cent, as the
case may be, to pay for the losses
on credit customers. "Don't you
want all the customers you can get? "
Well, no, not unless1 they are CASH

make him pay the losses of "Old
