The funny part of V. N. Armstrong's
talg about Little and Caypless Is that
ho gives them and their work so much
Importance. So far as known, no one
hut tho government crowd Is worrying.
U Is always n safe proposition to place
ronfldenco In the ability of United
States Senators nnd Congressmen to
size up lobbyists.
' in the general legislation for the
people of theso Islands, Hawaii has no
moro powerful or friendly agent In
Washington than Senator Clark of
Wyoming. Mr. Clark knows tho situ
ation aa It appears to tho broad minded
American. Ills Influence counts for
more than Hint of the whole Honolulu

Ono of tho most Important parts of
Itobert Wilcox's letter to Mr. Testa
of tho Independent is his reference to
the restoration Idea. Ho says: "All
our strong and powerful friends are
tlrod, such as tho Now York Herald,
Washington Post, etc., also our friends
In Congress." If this wore tho sum
total of result of tho Wilcox mission to
Washington, tho trip would bo worth
tho while. Hawaii's status as regards
ItH old timo Indepeiulcnco Is establish
ed for all timo no far as tho present
generation Is concerned. Tho only way
for th cuntlvo Hawaiian to accomplish
anything of benefit to himself or tho
Islands Is to tnko his position, as an
American citizen, that will bo given
under tho assuredly liberal territorial
law, Tho less tho old restoration Idea
erops out, tho more powerful will tho

DOULTFUL ABOUT DULLER
London, 1'eb. 9. The London nows
papcis fully realize that General Pul
ler's fight to rescue Lndysmlth has
only begun, that he Is not much better
off than ho was when ho captured
Splon Kop, and that thero will bo fur
ther long lists of dead nnd wounded,
whether General Puller falls or suc
ceeds. Nothing has been published as to
General lluller's movements on Thurs
day. If ho was able to hold his ground at
Vaal Krantz nnd bring up moro troops
nnd nrtlllery the critics will bo satis
fied. It Is not known In London how
Important Vaal Krnntz is, but It Is
pictty well understood that tho Poors
Intend to fight every inch of tho way.
There Is no strategy Involved In Gen
et al Puller's movement. Ho Is linm
mcrlng his way through the Poors by
means of nrtlllery. Ho Is moving
straight toward Lndysmlth nnd seek
ing to split .Toubcrt's army.
Pretoria despatches continue to de
scribe the Poer losses as trivial and
tho Prltlsh advantages of position as
The success of tho Prltlsh movement

Vnal Krantz Is exposed to a long cn-
fllndlng fire from Splon Kop on the
west and Doom Kloof on tho cast. The
Prltlsh aro on lower kopjes and the
Poors havo mounted heavy guns on
higher summits, which command Vaal
Tho Prltlsh themselves havo massed
l.ielr heavy guns on Mount Allco nnd
X.wnrt Kop on tho southern bank of
the river and havo brought their field
batteries Into action with cumulative
effect. Continued occupation of tho
kopjes nnd tho advance of Puller's
troops to Lndysmlth depend upon the
power of tho Prltlsh nrtlllery to
silence tho cnfllndlng guns. This Is
the view taken In official circles nnd
there Is a buoyant feeling of confi
dence. Much confidence Is felt in Lord Rob
erts' campaign against tho Free Stnto
from Cnpc Colony. It Is not yet clear
whether General McDonald's move
ment to the west of General Mcthucn's
camp is anything moro than a rccon
uolssnncc In forco to protect n fresh
advance from Pclmont to Douglas, nnd
tho skirmishing still In progress Is In
