Aguinaldo to raise his price to

As a good porcentnuo of Amer
ican citizens were once German
citizena or descendants thereof,
Germany has certainly had a
good example of tho fair treat

by the United States.
Now they say Japan is sending
rJflo3 to the Philippines. It would
indeed be strange if tho time
should corao when Homo nation
could not be pointed to a) Booking
to embarrass tho United States in
handling tho new possessions.
Spanish honor is making more
trouble for much troubled Spain.
Sagaeta'e resignation has been
forced at a time when his nation
can ill afford n ministerial crisis.
"What earthly benefit is to bo da

ish can eny.
While they may find us good
moa us Col. J. U. Fisher to lead
thd National Guaid of Hawaii,
certainly nono better will step
into the position made vacant by
his resignation. Col. Fisher has
shown himself a good organizer
a capable disciplinarian and hns
beon deservedly popultr among
tho men of hU command.
Whotevor Hawaii may miss in
the way of local logislntiou the

Tho proeont session is a good lea

difforenco between national ques

When tho flag was raisod Hawaii
stepped from n national item into

Tho fact that tho Iloueo Com
niitteo has occoptid tho compro
mise army bill is assurance that
this meabure will become a law
and all hopo of an extra session of
Congress is practical! doomed to
despair. This in oil probability
means that Congress adjourned
last Saturday without having
taken action upon any bill either
special or general relating to Ha
waii. Thus for fully a year this
teiritory will run along under a
soitof double oaglo government
which is satisfactory to no ono but
finift, uudor the circumstances be
acceptable to everyone.
The forthcoming year will un
questionably be a prosperpus one
for the business community if it
is not pleasing to the body politic.
The question of Amorican sover
eignty is settled thoreby eliminat
ing n serious element of fear for
tho future from tho business con
fers. The chief industry of the
teiritory continues to recoive the
bencGt of n froo market
in tho United States, whilo
the low tariff rates of Hawaii and
tho labor laws are not tampered
with in a way to upset tho ubuhI
channels of trade and labor.
Hawaii is allowed to wait nuother
year befoio tackling any serious
Theoretically, tho manifest duty
of this period of waiting is to re
peal such laws ns may he at
vurianeo with tho probable na
tional legislation, thereby antici
pating tho chaugo which Congress
must create. Practically, Hawaii
should take tho best of what 'm go
ing and mako tho most of it. As
the millennium has not arrived,
ovou in Hawaii, tho practical
courso is doubtlesB tho ono that
will be followed.
Tho election of September and
the legislative session following
will furnish food for thought and
controversy aucl will givo an op
portunity for tho men olecte'd by
tho registered voters under the
Republic of Hawaii to givo evi
dence of the character of Ameri
canism that exists after the
question of sovereignty is settled.
KAOMEA'S OPIUM FIND

guard at tho Pacitio Mail whnrf at
about 3:15 yesterday afternoon,
Jules Smith, tho colored cook, re
cently of tho Edward O'Rriou,
walked nshoro from tho City of
Peking and tried to go through
the gate. Knomeri had seon the

wharf and steamer and stopped
him. Upon searching tho fellow,
five tins of tho finest bind of opi

He was immediately put under ar

tho Surveyor for tho month of
March, that ho was a tool in tho
hands of somo inert on tho City of
Poking. Ho agreed to go back
and identify tho men, which ho
did. Ono of tho Ohineso boat
swains and the carpenter, a whito
man, were taken to tho Port Sur
veyor's oflice. Thoro, tho carpent
or, who had rofused to. givo any
information, began to weaken and
soon, the wholo story was out. The
head boatswain, a Chinaman, was
the principal man in tho transac
tion. Tho officers wont down ond
arrested tho fellow.
Last night, tho hoad boatswain
put up, through H.Hackfold it Co,,
tho sum of $250 as a boud for tho
appearnnco of Smith. The condi
tion was that tho colored man
should plead guilty. This ho did
in the Police Court this morning.

THE VACANT COLONELCY
According to the military law
of Hawaii, an olection must bo
held in tho National Guard for a
successor to Colonel J. H. Fisher.
Such is tho prescribed course in
