BEN BRUNS THE ORATOR
In His New Role With a Race for
ilntercstlDg Letter from the "Only Ben"
Lcclurlng on the Islands Longs
Tor Hawaii Again.
Tho "only Bon Bruno" writes
io a friend in this city from Oo
quille City, Oregon, wboro Ben
sot-ms to be as popular as ho wns
in Hawaii. On tho letterheads
Bruus uses is omblazoned "Ha

are tho Independent, Star, Bulle

"I arrived in Frisco eafely by
tho steamor China and to say I
was cold is putting it mild. I was
literally frozen stiff in our beauti
fill homo olimato and have just
about thawed out onough to writo
a few lines. I havo been to my
Kentucky homo on the banks of
tho Ohio rivor and was given a
royal welcome, in fact, I never
knew I ever amounted to as much
as thoy made of mo on my return.
"I am iu tho west again and
after donating my eptiro money
to race courses and othor charit
ablo institutions I was nguin in
my olomont faco to face with my
old friend poverty. I roooived
him joyfully as I am never in'
bettor trim for planning cam
paigns against tho Dollars ah
tvLou I havo none myself. Suf
Ccieut to relate I am lecturing on
Hawaii as it is and the Hawaiians
as they aro to largo and enthusi
astic audionces at 25 cents to n SI
a head. I sing their songs, tell
their history, relate their legends
and tales of valor of tho olden
days and show pictures of scones
and incidents of my Hawaiian
trip with a sterioptican. The
Dollars flow in quite morrily and
my old friend poverty is again
banished from my oirolo of ac
quaintances. "I find moro interest in the
smaller townB than in tho larger
regarding Hawaii and as interest
is money I of course go where
that is. I am working under the
Western Lecture Buroan and fill
in odd time independent of them.
You may think tbat I should bo
uatisfiod to mako money and live
easy but say I was far moro satis
fied with no money whon I was in
"Say thoy even term rao the
brilliant young orator. I wonder
what my friends in Honolulu who
havo laoghod at my antics as a
comedian would say to tbat. I
don't know what thoy will do in
regard to legislation for Hawaii
bat have written my friend Mo
Einley about it and you will sco
it will be in accordance with what
I told him.
"I don't kuow what you ponrdo
did to rao ovor thoro but I'm
afraid I'm moro of Hawaiian than
American an I keep longing for
Honolulu and Hawaii all the
time. It is ray intention to make
another Pauitiu Inland trip this
winter and I will stop over at the
only place I ovor know that could
win me away from my allegiturr
to my Kentucky homo.
A MATTER OF MOONSHINE ! -
When some people advertise "BARGAINS" did you ever pause long enough to think
that the bargains they speak of may be for the seller and not for the buyer? Many
$ of the alleged "great offerings" are but a delusive mixture of "MOONSHINE and
MISREPRESENTATION." That may do for iust once, but folks are not hankering
after it for a steady diet. HERE'S SOLID WORTH:

POLICE STATION SUGGESTION.
EniTon Evening Bulletin:
As an old contributor to the press
I dosiro to mako a suggestion
whioh I believe is timely. I see
that the annex to tho Marshal's
offico is being fittod up with a viow
to modernism in all its surround
ings. There is to be a place for
the patrol wagon and drivers,
lockers and a lounging place for
officers, a now kitchen rango and
everything pertaining thereto ex
cept a chef do cusino, but no
mention is made of a recoiving
Iu all cities notico of accident
und kindred wants are alwnys
telephoned to the police station
and the patrol wagons and ambu
lances aro sont to tbo front aud tho
injured taken rapidly to the near
ost receiving hojpjtal wboro thoy
are received and immediately at
tended to by a staff of surgeons.
Hore, as I witnessed a fow days
ago, it is sadly different. A poor
fellow who had his leg crushed
was brought in tho wojjon to tho
Contral station, tho doctor was
telephoned for and after about an
hour's wait arrived, examined the
mun and ordered him to the boa-
fiital for treatment becauso of the
ack of appliances at tho immedi
ate time and place.
Now whilo thoro is yet tiuio I
would suggest tbat Dr. Emorson
and tho marshal consult and that
a placo iu tho annex should be set
apart as an omorgenoy operating
room. It would certainly allevi
ate intonso suffering on tho part
of tho Injured and tond to prevent
the death, or lifo maiming of tho
sufferor. Pno Bono Publico.

YANKEE WORK IN CHINA
United States Will Not Favor Indi
Protect Interests Generally But Wll
Not Combine With Great Britain's
Now York, July 14. A special
to the Herald from Washington
says: Whilo President McKiuley
will tako all necessary stops for
tho protection of Americans aud
their interests iu China, thore is
no likelihood that ho will join
with Croat Britain iu coorcing tho
Peking Qovornment to givo extra
ordinary concessions to Amorican
aud British citizens.
A high official said regarding
tho mission of W. H. Parsons to
Washington that tho Administra
tion hud no intention of combin
ing with Croat Britniu or any
olhor Government iu tho interest
of itd citizoiu.
Naturally, the President 6tood
ready, ho said, to afford all reason
able and lawful protection to
Amoricans in foreign countries,
aud Mr Parsons would undoubt
edly receive this asauranco. It
hus been the policy of the Admin
istration not to advocate any
bpocial American industry to tho
Chinese Government. Instruc
tions sent to tho American Minis
ter in Peking somo timo ago said:
"In tho advancement of American
enterprises in China, and the
efforts mado in behalf of the
Chinese Foreign Offico, you
should bo cautious in giving what
might bo undorstood as this
Government's indorsement of the
financial standing of tho persons
seeking contrncta with that oi
China. Briefly speaking, you
should omploy all proper methods
for tho extoiiBion of American
commercial interests in China,
whilo refraining from advocating
the projects of any ono firm.
Now Yoik, July 8.--A Suu cable
from London says: Spiritualism
has roceived a heavy blow in
Franco. Oamille Flammarion, its
most prominent leader and best
known modium, has ronouncod it.
Ho affirms his boliof -that the
phenomena of spiritualism aro

the influenco of spirits of tho

version is duo to Knrdoe's book,

now declares that, although tho

impossible that tho illustrious as

St. Johns, (N. F.), July 10.
The colonial authorities are un
dorstood to havo beon informed
that the roport of tho Royal Com
mission of Inquiry into the French

Office, becauso it so strongly in

that its publication would pro
