With Jim Ham Lewis on the ictlred
list, the present Congress Is likely to
run short on pyrotechnics.
Governor Lcary of Guam flnds that
being n big toad In n little puddle Is
often accompanied by more adminlS'
trathe tioubles than tho Presidency.
The First American bank true to Its
progressive name leads tho van in giv

Ilartwell forwaids assuranco that
tho Picsldcnt deals at length on Iln

this assurance beforo Hartwcll spoke.
Tho tale of wrecks on the Humboldt
bar will soon be long enough to at
tract tho poets. According to nil io

Count tho sets of fouis In the next
regiment matching through tho streets
and It will glvo you n better concep
tion of tho meaning of Gen. Metliucu's
report of over 400 killed and wounded
In one battle.
After all it Is the young men who
are taking tho lead In tho discussion
of municipal problems. In assuming
tho new lino of work wo would suggest
that the Research Club make its meet
ings more frequent.
Apiopos of tho pro-lloer sentiment In
France, was It not French coin, French
so.dlers and French lnflucnco that
played mi Important part In helping
tho thirteen colonics to pull through to
-a successful Independence?
If tho peoplo who nro making such a
powwow over Congressman Roberts
would malco an equal effort to improve
tho laws of divorce In the nation, their
virtuous anti-polygamy howl would
possess the virtue of consistency.
The t-oloied 40th Is as husky a lot of
.fighters as has been seen in Honolulu
and for grucrnl discipline It has had
few If any aupeiiors that have rested
forr ir any superiors among tho regi
ments thnt have rested at this port.
Italian laborers fiom tho Southern
-Statei) should bo qulto as acceptable to
tho sugar planters as laborers from
Italy. Our peoplo cun at least guaran
tee that immigrants from the South
ern States need have no fear of lynch
IriR parties In Hawaii.
The British censor Is doing thorough
work In keeping army maneuvers from
too public, but the British reports are
overflowing with detail us compared
with what tho public gets out of Pre
toria. Oom Paul Is a past master in
keeping his movements secret until
its army Is jeady to strike.
Ilxpansion has at least given to the
report of the Secietary of War a vital
ity it has not possessed In the public
mind for many years. If Congress can
bo prevailed upon to unwind a. tenth
of the red tape with which the army
has been hampered, tho most Import
ant battle of recent yeais will be won.
One of the best features of the ad
ministration of the Finance office is
tho frequent publication of the treas
ury statement. The Interior depart
ment could possibly save Itself an Im
mense amount of criticism nnd nt least
keep tho peoplo In touch with the work
carried forward, by following tho samo

The story of Harper's downfall is
won told. Actuated by spite against
n board minded national leader, It at
tempted to convince tho peoplo that
patriotism was sawdust and tho honor
of following the flag a farce. Notwith
standing Its literary excellence, liar
per's was bound to follow Its mug'
wtimp compatriots to tho scrnp heap.
It Is not beyond tho rango of prob
abilities that the experts In solving tho
labor problem of Hawaii have been
casting too far In seeking a Bourco of
future supply for tho plniitntlou labor
market. The circular sent out by Ital
Ian labor agents In New Oilcans hull
cates that It Is not altogether neccs
sary for tho planters to Jump tho coiv
tlnent and enlist its laborers from I'u
ropcan fields direct. The Ditlletln Is
not In n position to speak for the roll
ability of the Italian labor agencies of
the South or nny other portion of tho
United Sfates. This, however, Is n
matter that can be very easily deter
mined. With the good record which
these laborers as n rulo have mndo In
the Southern country, It seems reason
able to believe that Hawaii can draw a
good quota from that district without
fear of adding an undesirable class of
citizens to tho lnbor clement.
Tcmperanco advocates of England
have evolved n scheme In liquor sa
loons that combines temperance drinks
nnd the cup that Intoxicates In n some
what curious manner. A temperance
association under tho diicctlon of the
Bishop of Chester Is establishing pub
lic houses whero coffeo and cocktails
aro served nccoidlug to order over the
bar. Tho only direct influence for tem
perance is excited upon the bar ten
Tho object of tho association Is to
mnko tho saloons, refreshment houses
with alcoholic ill Inks n sldo issue
nnd compelling strict order among tho
patrons. Tho vital point of tho schemo
Is tho enlistment of tho saloon man-
tiger on tho side of temperance. He
Is charged tho full retail prlco for alco
holic drinks, while for non-atcohollc
beverages ho Is enabled to make a
profit of twenty per cent. The appeal
Is thus mado direct to tho Inevitable
human Interest In tno lino of goods
from which tho largest profits can bo
made. Added to tho opportunity to
make money by urging his tempcrniico
goods on tho public, the. manager, is
paid a good salary and Is held respon
sible for tho proper beha lor of hla pa
tioii8. Good deportment Is deintiudod
and no liquor Is to bo sold to drunken
people. Excepting the sale of lutoxl
enntH, the general scheme Is similar to
that of tho coffeo houses established
in various parts of tho United States.
While the radical temperance advo
cates are disposed to look askance at
tills recognition of the "drink demon"
tho schemo of the Bishop of Chester
has tho appearance of having" moro
practical temperance In It than any
thing yet brought out.
TUB WAY IT IS.
The people of tho" country In general
don't seem to be qulto so proud of our
big surplus as does tho Government.
Thcro Is n considerable amount of In
terest manifested In It however, and

This, according to the Minister of

One of tho Government organs in
Honolulu remarked relatlvo to "Homo-

peoplo needed roads and no doubt thero
was a surplus, hilt If tho expenditure
wasn't authorized by the Legislature
there was no uso kicking, It couldn't bo
