fjB HE is the greatest
s-'v individual force In
VTj China." This short
sentence was the
P2 description of a
leader of the celebration
in honor of
the 60th birthday of
the mother of Chi-
a&'s Emperor. This -woman's son came
to tie throne of the wondrous empire
when he was but five years of age.
Until the monarch reached his majority
the dowager was the ruler. Her
ability was so signal and her liking
far public affairs so marked that si e
as to this day a prominent factor ia
the administration of the throne.
"When honored with the hand of a
iwineeof the blood the woman was a
member of a obscure family. Her
own talents earned her the place she
m ably occupied. It is common report
from the Orient that the dowager
will take the conduct of the war
from the trembling hands of her son
and IA Hung Chang. Observing men
who have informed themselves on
Chinese polity say that the woman
would exert every force of the empire
to uphold the honor of the throne.
The Chinese delight to honor Yin
ling. In every clime to which a person
of the race has been attracted, ner
praises are sung. In the empire she
Is simply imperial. To her brain
power there is added the most commendable
graces of the heart. Her
grasp of public matters Is equalled
only by her knowledge of the needs
of the people. She is constantly in
touch with the masses. Yin Ling
has made herself almost revered by
her munificent charities. These have
been accompanied by works from the
throne for the benefit of the laborers
and common people.
In Honolulu the Chinese celebrated
the anniversary of Yin Ling's birth
quietly but on a pretentious scale.
Sir. Ho Fon, of the Hawaiian Chinese
Xews, said they were averse to doing
anything that might tend to make
friction locally. The exercises were
managed by a committee consisting
of these business men. Wong Wa
Fni, of the Wing Wo Tai Company;
Chun Ming, Hop Hing Company;
Wong Chow, Yee Wo Chan Company:
C Afat, Yee Chan Company.
A purse was made up, the native
band engaged and a large quantity of
fireworks purchased. There was
nothing official about the affair. The
only representative of the Chinese
Government here is Mr. Goo Kim,
the commercial agent. In Tuesday's
functions he acted simply as a merchant
and the president of the United
Chinatown was profusely decorated.
There never was before such a. showing
of flags and lanterns. Banners
had been imported for the occasion.
The yellow flag with the fierce, forbidding
dragon fioated over every
Chinese place. At Maunakea and
Hotel streets a large Hawaiian flag
was draped from a line to the street.
At the Chinese engine house the tall
riag pole had the yellow cloth with
the picture and a long string of shipping
signals. The balcony of the
building at Hotel and Maunakea was
covered with vines and ferns and
leaves. It was here that the band
played at noon and again in the evening"
It was from tbe balcony that
Wong Wa Fui made tbe address of
Goo Kim and the assistant commercial
agent and other officers received
members and a few friends at the
club house of the United Chinese Society
on KiDg street. There were
feasts of sweetmeats for those who entered
tbe parlors. The decorations
were screens and doilies. The latter
were hand worked with golden
thread. There wers about 150 callers,
including a few foreign guests.
There were gatherings at various
hours of the day in the new hall of
ihe Chinese Protective Union. This
Is a new organization carried on by
persons entirelv friendly to the other
societv. It is also on King street. The
location is near Mauukea. Here some

in and end the war victoriously for
he- countrv. The Chinese here say
that incapable and dishonest officials
in their country give the Japanese advantage.
The display of fireworks last evening
was from the vacant lot at the
corner of Smith and Hotel. It was a
fine exhibition and drew a. large crowd
from all parts of town.
At 650 the meeting was held. ong
Wa Eui is said by his countrymen to
be a fine orator. He made himself
heard and held the close attention
of a large audience. The speaker
came to Hawaii as a child and has become
manager for a heavy wholesale
house, as well as a leader in the colony.
He said :
"This is the birthday of our beloved
Empress Dowager Tszi Hi, and she is
60 years of age. We, her people, must
honor her, as she has always treated
us as her own children.
"She has done many things for the
benefit of our countrymen. She held
the power in our country for many
years. Her beloved husband, our renowned
Emperor, Hamg Foong, died
about thirty-four years arro, ana after
his death her son Tung Chee ascended
the throne and became the Emperor
of China, but he was merely a boy
and the empire was actually ruled by
the Empress Dowager. Tung Chee
MR. TVOXG WA FUI.
reigned only for thirteen years and
died, and was succeeded by Kong See,
our present Emperor. " e all understand
that our present Emperor was
only five years old when he became
Emperor, and the country was again
under the rule of our beloved Empress
"During the reign of the present
Emperor, and while our country was
under the rule of the Empress Dowager,
it was very prosperous. She ruled
over 400,000,000 people and she is undoubtedly
a woman of good sense.
She has made many improvements in
our country. A few years ago there
were no railroads in China, but now
there are several hundred miles of
railroad constructed and several important
manufactories established in
the country. I may say tonight that
China is progressive in every respect,
and I may predict that China will be,
in some of these days, one of the most
powerful countries in Asia.
"Long live the Empress Dowager."
IS A GOOD PLANK.
An American Union Man Writes
About the Tariff.
Mr. Editor: The platform of the
Ameriean Union Party contains the
following plank on the tariff: "We
demand such a revision of the tariff as
will prohibit competition with American
products and manufactures, protection
to which America is justly entitled
by virtue of the treaty of reciprocity,
and which we deem necessary
to insure the existence of our merchants,
who are being rapidly superseded
by an element having nothing
in common with the principles lying
at the foundation of our institutions."
The editor of the Star, in his issue
of October 16th, commenting on the
platform, stated with reference to the
tariff plank. " The demand that the
tariff should be revised so as to meet
with the requirements of the American
tariff seems to be somewhat
cloudy until the status of the United
States tariff law is finally settled."
This has been his sole expression on
the subject up to last night's issue,
wherein the "clouds" seem to break
away; the editor's vision becomes
clear, for we find him advising the
Government to carefully investigate
the trade in saki, which comes into
direct competition with California
wines, preparatory to laying the
question before the Legislature as soon
as it convened, thus indicating the
wisdom of the Convention, which
fully appreciated the condition that
he now desires investigated and acted
upon, and exposing the shallowness
of his commentary on the tariff plank.
The sakl trade may be a startling revelation
to some, but it is merely an
examplification of what is being developed
in many other lines of goods,
a fact which can be proven by the
most superficial investigation.
The membership of the American
Union party have full confidence in
their elected representatives to the
Legislature, and know that they will
live up to the platform, which demands
the correction of a condition,
the existence of which is

These two paragraphs are from

"We ought to congratulate ourselves
on the quietness we eDJoy in

many conflicting elements and
especially while the war is being
waged between two of the nations
whose people supply for the most
part our labor. The prayers of the
church continually ascend that the
world may be so peaceably ordered
by God's governance."

F. A. Schaefer is the new president
of the Planters' Labor and Supply
Company. There was applause when
this was reported to the
morning. Mr. Schaefer has
been interested in plantations since
1S62. lie has always had an abiding
faith in the industry and has put in
his time and money through all the
vicissitudes. He is now very prominent
in the business, being well
known in foreign countries as a successful
man. He is at the head of
the acency and wholesale house of
F. A. Schaefer & Co. The gentleman
is dean of the consular corps at the
capital. He represents Italy, Mexico
and Guatemala. Mr. Schaefer is
placed at the helm of the Planters'
Labor and Supply Company at a
It was realized in selecting
Mr. Schaefer that such a man as he
was needed in dealing with the labor
question and establishing the experimental
station that is to be set up.
The other officers of the board are:
Vice President, F. M. Swanzy.
Secretary, C. Bolte.
Treasurer. P. C. Jones.
Auditor, J. B. Atherton.
It was recommended by the trustees
that the cempany levy five cents a ton
on output for current expenses and an
additional five cents if the laboratory
was secured and a chemist engaged.
Such a resolution was adopted after a
discussion that reached into many

Andrew Moore could see great merit
in the plan.
In answer to a question Mr. Eassie
was assured that isolated plantations
would derive full benefit from the station.
Mr. Scott was certain that the investment
would prove a profitable one
in the end. There should be a complete
laboratory, including a small

Professor Stubbs, of Louisiana, giving

Mr. Morrison thought there should
also be a complete library and all the
sugar publications. He remarked
that there were several French and
German publications from which
translations should be made.
There was some consideration of
revenue and the sugar men talked of
the coffee men. Mr. Swanzy spoke of
tbe worth of the services of Professor
Koeble and Mr. Marsden to the
new industry and pointed out tbe
fact that half of Mr. Koebele's salary
and expenses were paid bv the Planter's
Company. Messrs. Hall, Atherton,
Baldwin, Bolte, Goodale, Scott
and others spoke to this question. All
believed that the coffee men should
contribute to the funds of the company,
and that their inclination was
to co operate with the sugar men in
their development of the country.
Mr. Hall said that the coffee business
was still in its infancy, and that the
growers had not yet had any realizations.
Messrs. Kay, Scott, Olding and
others addressed the company on the
subject of taxing fertilizers coming
into the country, for the support of tbe
laboratory. It was also remarked that
these fertilizers should be tested upon
Mr. Baldwin believed that the coffee
men would co-operate with the company
if invited. Mr. Goodale moved
for a committee of three to handle tbe
matter. Messrs. Goodale, Hall and
Scott were named.
On motion of Mr. Kay, the publication
of the list of members in the
Planters Monthly was ordered. Mr.
Irwin suggested that tbe By-Laws be
revised and published.
Mr. Whitney presented a series of
resolutions, which were postponed.
These related to roads on Hawaii, to
tbe cable, bureau of information, and
several other matters. Messrs. Young
and Irwin said these matters had best
be handled by the Chau het of Commerce.
The meeting adjourned at 11:45.
Among the visitors to the hall yesterday
were Minister Willis, Consul
Mills, Judge Hart and J. G. Spencer.

An Eastern corporation with ample
capital is about to plant 5,000 acres
in San Joaquin Valley with canaigre,
the new tannin plant As canaigre
can be grown on the sand plains
without irrigation the new enterprise
is likely to make valuable those lands
that have hitherto been comparatively
worthless. A Stockton paper says
that in Drocess of time the bark
supply of the Mendocino country
must be exhausted and bark grow
dearer. The cultivation of canaigre
at present price- is not richly
but it will pay in the near
future. The root yields about like
the sugar beet and would leadily
command $5 a ton if produced in
such quantities as would justify a
tannery in putting up drying kilns
and mill to grind it.
Imprisoned On a Ship.

arrived in the port of Xew Yort on Saturday,
Sept. 3rd, 1S92, with cases of cholera on
board. Man; of the ship's company bad

here in Europe disease was racing. 1 he
authorities in America were alarmed lest tbe
scourge should be introduced into that
country. Hence they quarantined tbe
with every soul of her passengers and
crew. The writer was a passenger. It wa9
an awful time. Death was among ns and
on all sides of ns. Nobody knew who next

never seemed so fair, nor so far. We could
neither fight nor fly. There we were
hundreds ot trell, and yet bound
together as with chains, that the health
officer of the port might see whether the
plague wonld not yet break out in our midst.
When at last after weeks of this we were
set on shore, men lifted tbeir bats and
reverently said, "Thank God."'
This was being shut up under conditions
to make it horrible and fearful. Yet any
form of incarceration is bad enough. Here
is a woman, for example, who says, "I neter
moral a yard from my otcn doorstep for hcenty

Her tale runs thus: In April, 18S2, whiUt
living at Lasher's Farm, Old Samford. Essex,
a fire broke out, and tbe family were burned
out of house and home. We bave no call to
remark on such a calamity. The very
thought of it is fit to make one shiver with
dread. For most of ns it is like the world

Well what happened after that the lady
shall tell in her own fashion the best of all
fashions, because it is plain and straight to
the point. She says: "Owing to our bedding
being damp from exposure, I took a bad
cold, which brought on rheumatic fever.
For fourteen days I was confined to my bed,
and for twenty weeks I never moved a yard
from my own doorstep. After a time the
fever abated, leaving me weak, languid, and
low. At first. I bad a sickening taste in the
mouth and a poor appetite. No matter how
simple and light the food was, I was afraid
to eat, for it was sure to give me pain at the
chest and sides; so I often had to loosen mv
corset and undress myself during the day. I
could not bear the weight of my clothing.
-'I was constantly spitting np a sour,
frothy fluid, and bad a gnawing pain at the
pit of the stomach like hunger, and yet
different. It was with difficulty I voided the
kidney secretion, and my bowels, ankles,
and legs began to swell. I got worse; I
was in agony night and day, and could not
put my foot on tbe ground. Soon afterwards
a hu6ky cough took me, and my throat fil'ed
with a thick phlegm. I could not sleep, and
was never eisy. Later on I had often to sit
up in bed. foi I felt as if I should choke.

describing Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup
and what it bad done for many poor sufferers.
I got a bottle from Mr. Suckling,

gained strength. By taking an occasional

something back of tbe cold, for a cold nner

and that poison is always created by
indigestion and dytpepsia, whether

by tbe fact that Mrs. Green's chief ailment
for ten years after the fire was not rheumatism,
but indigeition and dyspepia and
dropsy, which is one of its results and

righted by the remedy she alludes to, all
