A correspondent writes the Bulletin,
"Your arc not a little bit right about
Mrs. Cougar. Of course It Is cxtrcmaly
hysterical and silly o. her to adopt
such tactics, but she Ih a woman with
a reputation for great cleverness and
ability throughout the middle west,
and Murphy Is a back i.uiober." Mrs.
Ciougnr's reputation ai established by
her remarks In Honolulu speaks for It
self. If the middle weft has nny more
material to send to there Islands, kind
ly send the "back nii'iibers" to be It
that Francis Murphy and men or wo
men of his kind come under that classi
fication. llcforo tho "government" goes to
nny great expenso In lining up a hall
way for a Senate chamber It will do well
to consult legislative members as to
their desires to hold their sessions In
such n place. There r.ar always been
serious objection to tho upper hallway
of the Capitol for a Sennte chamber.

Smith was It acceptcu in : the first

PURCHASING THE DRUGS.
Ocorso W. Smith.." president and
manager of llcnson Smith & Co., Ltd..
in a communication tn n rfiornlng pa
lter, makes this statement. "The orders
(Hoard of Health) hnv been equally
divided among the drug houses of the
T. W. Hobron, of Hip llobron Drug
Co., Ltd., makes the statement that
during the year 1900 fils company re
ceived only $100 worth of dnlgs from
the Hoard of Health.
The Hoard of Health nutllorltl.e.Hjtnte
that the yearly purchase of drugs
amounts to something like $12,000,
Whether Mr. Smith eans to Infer
that Hobrnh does not con'luet n drug
house or has been Incorrectly Informed
regarding the division of drug pur
chnses. the Duiletln iter not know or
care. Competing houses are capable
of. lighting their own battles. An
equal division of drug purchases among
local (muses might be satisfactory to
the business men concerned, and at the
fame limp fall to accomplish the best
results for the taxpayers. The merits
or dmerlts of the city drug stores is n
matter that Is left exel .slvelv with the
ofllehls dealing with tl em.
It cannot be denied that In the pur
chase of drugs, as with every other
commodity, n lower nrlce can be se
lured through cnmpelt've bids thnn by
purchase In the open market. The law
of the land requires that on nil public
works construction amounting to $.100
or more public tendon shall be called
for. The obvious reannn for thh law
Is tn secure construction at the lowest
possible figures. Tho tnme reasoning
holds good In the purchases made by
all public departments
