Success of wiroloss telegraphy
at the yacht raco gives added as
saranoo of the success of wireless
telegraphy for lutorisland com
mnnicatioD in Hawaii.
Again McKinloy nemos his pol
icy. When presenting Admiral
Dewey with tho aword voted by
Congress, tho Freaidont said:
"Thoro waa no flaw in your
victory, thoro shall bo no faltering
in maintaining it." Not whilo tho
President remains onr loador will
onr flag mark a polioy of infamy,
nor will onr nation waver beforo
tho responsibilities thrust upon it
tho oircumatanco of war.
Lato dispatches would indicate
that tho Olaa squatters aro not the
only ones who were watching the
local government in its disposi
tion of public lands. The army
and the navy aro forces with
which onr short sighted officials
did not rookon. " Brooking no
interference" with tho federal au
thorities, particularly of tho army,
was a dauc3 for which our much
esteemed Executive Council has
yet to pay tho full charge of tho
The most satisfactory feature
about tho news of the great inter
national yacht contest is tho na
euranco that when tho wind d-ea
come favorably for speed, tliore
will be a raco not a
procession ns in former years. In
tho two failures to cover the
courso within the timo limit, the
challenging yacht in shown to bo
far superior to any racing machine
English yacht builders havo turn
ed out iu provious years. In
Lipton'a yacht, tuo Americans
find material worthy of their
metal. There is no occasion for
Americans to feel dubious over tbo
performance of Columbia. It is
tho fastest and best yacht over
constructed by American buildors,
and, while by virtue of tho great
advances made by tho Britishors
tho cup is in greater danger than
ever beforo, there is no occasion
to predict defeat for th defender.

The Zealandia departed with

Aadr.e Buoy Found.
Stockholm, Swedon, Oot. 2.
Tho buoy marked "Andxoe Polar
Expedition" which, with an an
chor attached, was found Sept. 9
on the north coast of King Char
les island by the master of the
Norwegian cutter Martha Lar
s&ak, was opened yestorday in
the presence of a number of ex-
furls and members of the Cabinet.
t was found to be the so-called
North Pole bnoy which Andree
had arranged to drop if he suc
ceeded in passing the Pole.
Invitations have been received
in town by friends of Boar Admi
ral and Mrs. Walkor to tho mar
riage of their daughter, Frances
Pickering to Dr. John Jenka
Thomas on Saturday, October 21,
1899 at All Souls Church, Wash
ington, D. 0.
Tho peoplo of this city aro cer
tainly migratory in thoir inolina
lions. Most of them havo seen
tho world in its entirety. Their
naruPB are inscribed upon tho
hotel registers of every firat-class
canvanasary on the globe with
Honolulu affliod in glowing prido.
An hour's notice is sufficient time
for them to make up their minds
for a tour, whilo it would take, nt
least, six months for a party in the
Stato's to come to the snme conclu
sion, and possibly another thieo
months added, to study up maps,
etc., alonn tho route. This differ
ence in alortness cannot bo ao-
coonted for through chmatio
reasonings. It is an unborn do
sire to travel.
A well known Honoluluian, a
noted globe trotter who makes fre
quent trips to the Statos, in fact
ho has just returned from an ox
tended tour. Whilo in Wall,
Niohols Co.'s store the other day
standing by tho sale of tho Boston
Lyrio Opera Co. was heard by a
Bulletin reporter to say: "I
saw the Boston Lyrics in Port
land, Oregon, a few weeks ago. I
muBt confess -it was a difficult
matter for mo to get a seat, so
crowded was the opora house.
Tho performance was "Maritana,"
and it was nnqneBtionally one of
the host production of opera I
have ever witnessed. If thoro is
any doubt as to this company's
excellence in this city it can be
dispelled at once. Eight weeks
will not bo too long an engagement
in Honolulu when the people onco
find out bow groat an organization
of singing is in their midst.
ANOTHER PLOT IN MANILA.
Manila, Oct. 5, 0:20 p. m. Tho
Archbishop of Manila has in
formed Geueral Otis that there
was a plot on foot to burn tin
residonces of tho Governor-General
aud tho Archbishop, together
with several Government build
ings and banks, but tho plot fail
ed to materialize, possibly because
of a display of fotce.
The first reports regarding the
affair at Paranquo lunt night ap
pear to havo been much exagger
ated. The facts aro that a small
band of insurgents, following the
by road, poured a volloy into tho
village, nod later another into Los
rinoa, with the result that two or
three housos wore burnod. The
cracking of the bamboo caused it
to be reported iu Manila that
there had been much shooting.
Tho United States transport
Warren, trout Sun Franoisco, with
1200 reoruits, has arrived.
The United States aunboat
Wheeling from Vancouver, March
3, via Honolulu, whilo passing
St. Vincent in Northern Luzon,
shot down a Filipino flag. The
imipinos tired a volloy at the
Wheeling's men, who wore sleep
ing on dock, and the Wheeling
bombarded the settlement.
Ah Chew, a Chinese boy, was
arrested last night undor the cur
few law. Tho little fellow was
trying to make a little money by
holding tho haok of a Japanese.
The prosecuting attorney asked
for a small fine but Judge Wilcox
answered that it was a different
case from that of some of the hood
lums who roam about town at
night and, reprimanding the little
fellow, allowed him to go.
One of tho attorneys in tho
room asked a friend why if the
police were goiugto start in on tho
curfew law, they did not rope in
the ohildren who go to the Or
phenm and others who roam
about tho streets aftor 9 o'clock
every night. t
Among tho kamaainas who re
turned in tho Maripoea this morn
ing were the following. . '
T. F. Dredge, formerly of T. H.
Davies & Co. bat now of the
Crane Co. of San Francisco.

Paris, Oot. 2 By the direction
of tbo Anglo-Venezuelan Arbitra
tion Commission some of Great
Britain's claims as to the interior
and on the coast aro disallowed.
Her frontier will start at the Wai
ni Biver. Tho award was unani

nature of a compromise, rather
than as favoring Venezuela.
LOVCD ON ACCOUNT OF HIS
"Money," said the philosopher, ''may
often do more harm than eood. Sometimes
the mighty dollar Isa man's worst enemy."
"Yes," answered SenatorSorchum,"and
I often feel a number of people love me for
the enemies I have made."
But he did not mention what a staunch
friend his Sterling Bicycle had always
been to him. ,
Myrtllla: "Let me explain basket bail
to you, Mr. Ambrose. The object, you
Mr. Ambrose: "Oh, I understand the
object, Miss Myrtllla. The object Is to
hit some Innocent bystander who has on
twenty dollar eye-classes."
The P. C. & M'f'g Cs. has both basket
balls and goals, Imported direct from
Likely Purchaser: "By the way. your
manager has just lately been married.'"
Head Salesman: "Yes; oh yes. Sterling
bicycle people, are to blame for that."
Purchaser. "That's Interesting; what
did they have to do with It?"
Head Salesman for P. C. & M't'g Co.:
"Well, you see, he took the young lady
out on the Sterling Tandem we have here,
and It ran so easy he thought she was
doing all the work, and the same thing
was passing through her mind. They
both thought how nice It would be to have
things always that way. They didn't
know those Sterlings were to blame."
Purchaser: "Well, I guess you can set
up that same Sterling wheel for me."
Did you know that the P. C. & M'f'g
Co. will make your old wheel look like
new for G? Well, they will; try them.
