BULLETIN ANirrilE NEWS.
The Bulletin was tho first paper
to publish the news of the Increaso In

It was the only paper In give an ac
curate statement of the news facts.
This is another of the very fre
quent proofs that you have to get the

truth about It.
THE GRAND JURY.
The Territorial Grand Jury lias
been doing Its work so quietly In tho
last few months that tho snap and
vigor of lis report comes ns a sur
prise. The conclusions, however, nro
none tho less In the Interests of Jus
tice and common decency, all rules of

We refer our readers to the text of

THE FLEET DELAY.
Holding the fleet has no more slg
nlllcatice than might be expected at
a time when the greatest political vol
cano on earth Is very much disturbed.
Most anything is likely to happen
at any time in China. Thus far tho
revolution and Its general turmoil
has gone on with less Interference
from the Powers than would have
been predicted. Kvery nation is and

I hat the dllllcully Is no doubt due lo
the very largo Increase In tho amount

The point Is a very Important ntio,
particularly on account nf tho ex

the business organizations take up the
subject with the poslnlllcc olllclals In
the city, llrst with n view to Increas

once very generally discussed of hav
ing a postal agent on each of thn mall
steamers coming from the mainland.
Letter pouches nro now given quick
dispatch from an Incoming steamer,
but the volume has reached such pro
portions that Honolulu has good rea
son to ask for sorting tho mall before
It reaches the city.
We have not the slightest doubt that
the postal authorities will cooperate
with the people of Honolulu In every
way possible to secttro an Improve
ment of tho service.

moving picture shows of the city to
